Braised his office personnel for 
^neir hard work in keeping up 

with the voluminous mail and 
in returning quick responses. 
He explained the recruitment 
program, which encouraged 
enrollment, as having two main 
thrusts: "We had recruiters in 
all five conferences of the 
Southern Union, and our 
telemarketing program con- 
tacted students by phone." 

Yet the large enrollment had 
an unexpected effect on Talge 
Hall and Thatcher Hall. To 
save money, during the sum- 
mer, block walls had been con- 
structed to divide the third floor 
into sections, thus closing parts 
of the dorm. Because enroll- 
ment supplied more Talge 
residents than expected, two of 
the walls needed to be taken 
down on the second day of 
registration. Dean Christman, 
Dean of Men, originally ex- 
pected around 350 residents- 
right now there are just over 

pressed his feelings this way: 
"Of course, we were glad to 
knock the walls down to make 
room for more students. It 
would be fantastic to have no 
more room in the inn and you 

can take that one to the bank . ' ' 
In Thatcher the annex had to be 
reopened after original plans 
were to have all the women in 
However, despite the general 
feeling of pleasant surprise 
among faculty members, 
registration left students in 
various moods. Freshmen that 
were asked about registration 

had varying opinions. While 
some described the registration 
process as "confusing and ir- 
ritating," most had positive 
simple"; "advisors were very 
helpful"; "easy to find way 
around." Still others enjoyed 
meeeting people at registration 
and thought the process of 
registration was fun. 

Upper-classmen had com- 
ments about registration as 
well. Some students who 

menting "a bummer." A third- 
year student found registration 
well organized and easier with 
experience. Altogether, 
registration was a success.

Hefferlin Heads for Denver 

By Cynthia Watson 

Dr. Ray Hefferlin, a graduate 
of the California Institute of 
Technology, has been a physics 
professor of Southern College 
since 1955.. He has left Col- 
legedale for the University of 
Denver on a one-year sab- 
batical leave. 

"My professional objective at 
the University of Denver is to 
begin to write a book on the 
research I've done over the past 
several years," Dr. Hefferlin 
states. Due to the increased in- 
terest in his field. Dr. Hefferlin 
believes, "It is time to write a 
book on the subject." His cur- 
rent research project, a periodic 
system for diatomic molecules, 
involves the arrangement of 
something similar to the 
chemist's periodic chart of the 
elements. Since his research has 
gone so well in this area, Dr. 
Hefferlin has begun work on a 
system for three-atom mol- 
ecules and is thinking about a 
system for four-atom mol- 

His students will miss him 
enormously. Junior physics 
major David Gentry describes 
him as enthusiastic, patient, 
and helpful, both in and out of 

the classroom. He remembers 
"Doc", as Dr. Hefferlin is 
fondly called, stating his 
grading motto: "I may not 
always be totally fair, but I do 
claim to be consistent." 

Dr. Hefferlin received invita- 
tions from Loma Linda and 
Auburn University but chose 
instead to take his sabbatical 
leave at the University of 
Denver. "The particular in- 
terests of the staff and 
geographic location of the 
University of Denver make it a 
good choice," he says. He 
previously knew some of the 
staff. Also, travel expenses will 
be cut in half by this ideal 

His speaking engagements will 
take him as far as Canada and 
Hawaii. December 21 he'll be 
speaking in Honolulu on 
research done by computer and 
physics major Ken Priddy and 
chemistry major Erin Sutton. 
In Toronto he'll be reporting 
on research done with Henry 
Kuhlman. His last speaking 
engagement will be in May at 
Los Angeles. 

His family has taken the move 
in stride. His wife's plans to 

further her education with 
classes in interior design have 
been cancelled since the Univer- 
sity doesn't offer them. 
Melissa, his oldest daughter, 
doesn't seem to mind giving up 
the office of Student Associa- 
tion President at Collegedale 
Academy in order to be with 
her family. 

Physics professor Henry 
Kuhlman, who has been an in- 
dispensable associate to Dr. 
Hefferlin in his research, says, 
"The physics department will 
miss him tremendously, and 
we'll just have to limp until he 
gets back. His presence will be 
especially missed by the 

Through the Business Ex- 
cecutive Challenge to Alumni 
(BECA) program, the school 
has granted Dr. Hefferlin 
$5,000 for the expenses of 
traveling to consult with other 
specialists in his field of 

research. Those individuals that ,<jK

really enjoyed, and because of that displeasure, I refuse c u 
it The words we're talkin', when used in slang manner, just ir- 
r tate me°espeeially when used in a series of descriptions. For 
xampTe, I was watching a televised football game one day and 
helnouncer, in his efforts to describe a receiver-, £»£*£ 
to the viewers a similar line of descriptions as the f°"°™S; 
"We're talkin' quick, we're talkin' lightning speed, we re talkin 
mercury, we're talkin' ..." You get the picture? Not too long ago, 
however, I heard those words used with the word proud follow- 
ing them, and to my ears, they had a nice ring We re talkin 
proud'" If you say the words loud enough, they sound pretty 
good. I believe we should adopt that line to describe this year. 

You might ask, "What have we got to be proud on Allow 
me to answer in this manner although it is against my better judg- 
ment. We're talkin' a higher-than-expected enrollment, we re 
talkin' Christian friends, we're talkin' Christian teachers, we're 
talkin' new friends, we're talkin' old friends, we're talkin' more 
and better facilities, we're talkin' a dedicated S.A., we're talkin' 
a new and exciting Sabbath School format, we're talkin' more 
Campus Ministries activities, (we're talkin' a new Compugraphic 
machine), and, last but certainly not least, we're talkin redecora- 
tion of Talge Hall. In other words, we're talkin' proud! 

Everyone does not have the privilege of attending a Christian 
institution. Even less have the privilege of attending Southern Col- 
lege. We should be proud of our school and what it stands for. 
While it is true that secular colleges offer many incentives that 
a Seventh-day Adventist institution can not offer, the opposite 
of that statement is also true. Secular colleges cannot offer cer- 
tain incentives that a college like ours can. Southern College pro- 
vides an individual with the opportunity to fellowship with those 
who believe the same way he does. It provides him with the chance 
to get closer to his Lord. If you were to read the Southern Col- 

i for this student's body. After a few 

strides again. For that 
talkin' proud" as this year 
promises to be exciting. 

D fulfill the school'!

An Interview With The President 

You have been president of this 
college for over a year now; what 
were some of your goals and 
aspirations when you first took 
this office? 
One of my major goals was to 
continue the kind of leadership 
at this college that it has a 
reputation for so that students 
and constituency would feel 
that they were getting the best 
possible return on their in- 
vestments in Adventist higher 
education. This college has 
been well managed for years, 
and it's obvious by the quality 
of people, the quality of 
buildings, the quality of pro- 
grams, and as well as the finan- 
cial statement. 

Now as you enter your second 
year, are there any specific goals 
for 1984-85? 

One of the major challenges 
now, in my mind, is academic 
master planning. We need to 
know where we want to be five 
or ten years from now. For that 
very reason, I am excited about 
Dr. Bill Allen being on the staff 
now. That is one of the items 
that he and I talked about 
before he was ever hired, and 
he was excited about working 
on the planning. I feel it is 
something we really need. I 
think it is something that is go- 
ing to make a difference, 
maybe not this year, but as we 

So then will there be any 
changes this year that students 
can actually see? 

I doubt it as far as the 
academic master planning. 
That sort of process takes a 
while. I would think, however, 
that people who are now in 
academies would be able to 
come here, knowing that the 
majors and programs we of- 
fered are really going to prepare 
them for the working world 
when they graduate from here. 
However, the students will 
notice that there are fewer 
faculty members; there will be 
fifteen fewer members on cam- 
pus. But we were staffed for 
2000 students, and we only had 
1600. So we had to be shifting 
dollars which were supposed to 
be dedicated for repairs and 
maintenance over into 
operating to balance our 
budget. And you can't do that 
very long because it is sacrific- 
ing the future for the present. 
Dr. Wagner, there seems to be 
an optimistic feeling going over 
campus among both faculty and 

students. What do you attribute 
this feeling to? 
I m not sure, Dennis. But I'm 
glad to hear you say that 
because I have felt very op- 
timistic about the future of this 
college. And people who I 
associate with also have the 
same feeling. I'm not really sure 
what to attribute it to. 
Perhaps one of the reasons is 
that you have established a 
reputation as one who makes 

himself available for many of the 
student functions and as one who 
concerns himself with the divi- 
sions on campus. 

Actually, beginning about 
November of last year and con- 
tinuing on through the summer, 
an inordinately large amount of 
my time was taken up by 
retrenchment, and I didn't get 
around to as many functions as 
I wanted to. Frankly, I am a lit- 
tle bit ashamed~about how lit- 
tle bit of visibility I had during 
some months of last year, i 
think I need to be aware of the 
pulse of the campus, and the 
only way I know to do that is 

to be where the action is. Tkl 
year I want to increase i 

Gouig onto another subject, thj, 1 
scho«l has been in the midst of I 
a lot fcf controversy in the pas , I 
few years although last year *, I 
a great deal more calmer. D, I 
you think all of the controvert I 
is behind us? I 

I hope it is. I don't see an.1 
evidence of it being stirred n, I 
again. But I have learned thjl 
it is awfully hard to secotfl 
guess people. I hope and p ri J 
that it is in the past. I

Dana Records First Album 

By Mike Battistone 

To Be Loved, the first album 
recorded by Dana Reed was 
released last month. Although 
most new students of Southern 
College are not familiar with 
Dana, he is well known by the 
rest of the student body by vir- 
tue of his ability as both a 
writer and performer of con- 
temporary Christian music. 

Although Dana graduated 
from SC last May (he received 
a degree in communications, 
with emphasis in both jour- 
nalism and radio-TV film), his 
preperation for his career began 
much earlier than his collegiate 

when I was about five years 
old," Dana recollects, "my 
father would be teaching my 
brother Anthony and me how 
to sing. We would be tired and 
would want to go to bed, but he 
kept us up, and that year we 
learned to harmonize." 
When Dana was six years old, 
he joined the Harlem Boy's 
Choir and was a member for six 
years. Following this experience 
he joined the "Dynamics," a 
traditional gospel group, and 
was involved in a number of 
quartets, frequently joined by 
Anthony. More recently, he has 

been a member of the groups 
"Judah" and "Surrender." 

Currently Dana is doing solo 
work. His schedule took him to 
the Rosewood Festival in 
Nashville this past weekend ami 
he has several concerts schedul- 
ed in New York later this year,. 

In addition to his singing abnV 
ty, Dana Reed is an ac- 
complished songwriter, and for 
five years composed much ol' 
what he sings. The song "Justf 
a Prayer Away," one he wrote) 
for a New York gospel | 
has reached the number 7 slot 
on the gospel chart. 

"Wiitu cralcod about his profev 
sional goals, Dana replies, "I 
am working to become the best 
musician I can possibly be. 1 
want to provide Christians 
everywhere, particularly young 
people, with music that they 
feel they can enjoy throughout 
the week, rather than limiting 
their religious music to the 

The album is Dana's first 
album, but according to him, 
certainly not his last, To Be 
Loved is available at the Hair 
Designer's Beauty Shop in the 
College Plaza. 



By Gordon Bietz 
Once upon a time there was a 
man, named Pilgrim, who liv- 
ed in the city of Eladegelloc, 
and there, he was told by Mr. 
Speaker that if he was to carry 
the name Pilgrim he needed to 
go to the Holy City. Mr. 
Speaker pointed to a distant 
mountain and told him that the 
Holy City was on that moun- 
tain. Pilgrim looked as careful- 
ly as he could, and he could on- 
ly see a faint glimmer from the 
peak of the mountain. He 
wasn't sure that he could make 
it to that faint glimmer, it look- 
ed so distant and vague. He 
told Mr. Speaker that there was 
no hope for him, for the 
journey looked too difficult 
Mr. Speaker was persistent 
though and described to him 
the glories of life in the distant 
city, convincing him that he 
should go. Still, Pilgrim was 
sure that there was no way he 
could make the journey. Mr. 
Speaker then told him that it 
wasn't hard because others had 
gone before him, and they had 
painted a white line for 
travelers to the Holy City to 
follow. Pilgrim decided that 
with a line to follow he could 
probably make it, and so he 
started his journey to the Holy 
City from Eladegelloc. At the 
beginning of the journey he 
found that everything went very 
smoothly. He had a very clear, 
very white line to follow that 
was very wide and clearly 

distinquishable from all that 
surrounded it. "This trip will be 
easy," he thought to himself as 
his journey began, "it is all so 
clear to me now." 
He traveled quickly as he kept 
his head down following the 
white line around buildings, 
through streets, and across 
hills. His confidence level in- 
creased as he moved along un- 
til he came to a place where the 
white line was not as clear as it 
had been. It looked as though 
it had been smudged. The far- 
ther he got from Eladegelloc, 
the less clear the line seemed to . 

The dimmer the line became, 
the more he focused on it, or 
what was left of it, and he 
found himself needing to crawl 
along the road to keep track of 
the white line. The edge of the 
line was hardly distinguishable; 
in fact, the line became rather 
gray as he traveled along and its 
direction was no longer ab- 
solutely certain. Pilgrim, more 
determined than ever to follow 
the line, purchased a magnify- 
ing glass, so he could be sure of 
the location of the line. 

The magnifying glass soon 
proved to be inadequate, and so 
he obtained a "Line Detection 
Light Meter" which was conve- 
niently for sale just to the side 
of the road. The salesman said 
that this instrument could pick 
up a difference in reflectivity of 
just one lumen over the 

distance of 2 meters. With the 
help of this instrument Pilgrim 
was able to travel a bit more 
rapidly along the road. 
It wasn't long, however, 
before even the "Line Detec- 
tion Light Meter" wasn't 
enough, and so he purshased a 
microscope which was conve- 
niently for sale just to the side 
of the road. The salesman said 
that this microscope would be 
able to pick up pigment of paint 
that was just a couple of 
microns across so that he could 
be sure and know that he was 
following the line. 
The trip to the Holy City was 
becoming drudgery to Pilgrim. 
Each day he was getting out his 
line detecion equipment looking 
for paint and seeking to distin- 
quish the gray from the white. 
In the process of focusing on 
the line he lost sight of the Ho- 
ly City, but he did make some 
interesting discoveries. 
One of Pilgrim's discoveries 
made by using a Geiger counter 
was that the true white paint 
that must have been used by the 
best traveler to precede him had 
a trace of a radioactive com- 
pound in it. This discovery, of 
course, meant that he would be 
able to invent a machine that 
could detect the line and it's 
direction even though there 
were only a few molecules of 
paint on the road. He obtained 
a patent on this new line detec 

tion equipment. He named the 
instrument the "True Radioac- 
tive Line Detection Meter" and 
contracted with a local pilgrim 
store to sell his device. 
The advertising was im- 
pressive: "Guaranteed pure line 
detection for passing pilgrims." 
He set up his own shop and 
made a killing on travelers to 
the Holy City. Sales from the 
meter were fantastic, and he 
made a great deal of money. He 
found it was good for business 
to give generously to prophets 
who encouraged the travelers 
on the road. He would even 
give a percentage to prophets 
who referred customers. He in- 
vested his profits in the com- 
munity at the foot of the moun- 
tain and lived comfortably 
beside the path leading to the 
Holy City. 

One day Mr. Speaker, the one 
who sent him on his journey, 
visted him. Pilgrim proudly 
showed off his fancy equipment 
and told him how it certainly 
must have saved many a 
traveler from straying from the 
true line. "You see," he toTd 
Mr. Speaker, "everything is so 
gray that by the time the 
travelers pass through here they 
just don't know which way to 
go unless they buy my 

"Have you ever thought why 
things go gray here?" asked 
Mr. Speaker. 

"No," replied Pilgrim, "I just 
know from personal experience 
that without my equipment you 
simply can't detect a line past 
this city." 

"But why is it that you can't 
detect a line here, and it is so 
clear down in the valley? ' * per- 
sisted Mr. Speaker. 

"I don't know" said Pilgrim. 

"I'll tell you why," continued 
Mr. Speaker. "Look up at the 

Pilgrim looked up at the 
mountain peak and covered his 
eyes, for they were blinded with 
the light from the mountain. 
"You see" continued Mr. 
Speaker, "from here the 
traveleres can see the Holy Ci- 
ty so clearly that they are no 
longer concerned about the 
lines and whether they are gray 
or white. When you are this 
close to the Holy City, if you 
focus on the goal, your feet will 
stay in the path." 

"Oh" said an embarrased 
Pilgrim. "If that is true, sales 
for the "True Radioactive Line 
Detection Meter" will 

"That is true," answered Mr. 
Speaker, "but then the travelers 
will lift their eyes and look at 
their goal, rather than examin- 
ing the remnants of each line, 
seeking to determine which is 
most white. With their eyes on 
their goal, their feet will be on 
the right path." 

Collegiate Commitment Weekend Begins 

By La Ronda Curtis 

Making a commitment, a 
pledge to do something, is not 
uncommon for college 
students. Most of us make 
some of kind of commitment 
each day. For example, we may 
make a commitment to meet a 
friend at KR's Place for an 
afternoon snack or promise to 
help someone study for his 
Chemistry test or agree to have 
opening prayer for Sabbath 

We may be used to making 
commitments, but do we 
always carry them out? Have 
you ever stood up in an appeal 
at the end of a church service 
as a sign of commitment to 
Christianity? It is easy to forget 
about the commitments we 
ma ke, and unfortunately, 
sometimes we don't do 
anything about them. 

During September 6-9, 
Southern College will have its 
commitment weekend on cam- 
Pus. Assistant Chaplain Dale 
Tunnell sees this weekend as a 
time for students to "commit 
themselves to sharing what they 
° e Jieve in, and then putting it 
'"*T action. "Getting involved 

during this weekend will be a 
big step for the student body to 
keep a commitment to the col- 
lege, and most important, to 

To assist in getting this 
weekend off to a good start, the 
youth directors from the 
Southern Union will be on cam- 
pus. On Thursday night, they 
will form a team for a Softball 
game and play against the SC 
staff. They will be visiting some 
of the classes Friday morning 
and will be in charge of con- 
ference afterglow after vespers. 
To top off the weekend, they 
will be hosting the annual pan- 
cake breakfast Sunday morning 
at 9:00. Their spiritual en- 
thusiasm will be a good boost 
for our college at the start of a 
new year. 

Others who will be here this 
weekend will be Elders Ralph 
Peay and Ray Tetz. Those who 
were here last year will recall 
that Elder Tetz was one of our 
speakers. Their theme will be 
"Focusing on the World." 
Elder Peay, Southern Union 
Youth Director, will be the 

speaker for chapel on Thurs- 
day. Elder Tetz will speak Fri- 
day night and also for the Sab- 
bath worship hour. 
' Campus ministries will hold a 
special Sabbath School pro- 
gram in the Collegedale 
Church. Several different 
aspects of the college's 
ministry, such as CABL, Target 
Ministry, Student Missions, 
and others will be discussed. 
There will be planned activities 
on Sabbath afternoon for 
students to activate their com- 
mitment. At 2:30 a group will 
be going out to the community 
to distribute literature. They 
will be distributing Amazing 
Facts Bible tracts. To end the 
day, a singspiration is planned 
for 7:30 on the steps of Lynn- 
wood Hall. Tunnell hopes these 
will be successfull attempts to 
get students involved in "fun" 
religious activities.

Gerald Colvin 

Dr. Allen Replaces Futcher 

By Moni Gennick 
Dr. William Merle AJlen is our 
new vice-president of academic 
affairs at Southern College, 
replacing Dr. Cyril Futcher 
who retired this summer. 
Dr. Allen is a native of 
California and has spent the 
last 16 years teaching chemistry 
at La Sierra of Loma Linda 
University. However, he is 
e than just a chemistry pro- 
fessor from the west coast. 
During his career he has serv- 
ed on various university com- 
mittees and organizations, as 
well as involving himself in 
areas apart from the universi- 
ty. For example, he served on 
advisory committee that 
dealt with air pollution control 
and was a curator of minerals 
at the World Museum of 
Natural History at Loma 
Dr. Allen holds membership 
in the American Chemical 
Society and has received several 
honors and awards for his 
research in the chemistry field. 
In response to the question of 
whether he misses California, 
Dr. Allen answers, "Once you 
have an attitude to serve, the 
location is really secondary. 
Job satisfaction is more impor- 
tant, and I'm planning on a 
long-term commitment to this 
particular position." 
Concerning his jump from 
scientist to administrator, Dr. 
Allen remarks that he considers 
himself an educator first and 
scientist second. "I've enjoyed 
the administrating work that I 
have done in the past and look 
forward to doing it fulltime. I 
felt I had already done all I 
could do in teaching, and this 
provides me with new areas of 
challenge and growth." 
Dr. Allen's goals for the col- 
lege is to form a long-range 
plan of strategy to keep the col- 

lege alive and vital in the face 
of a rapidly changing job 
market and a national decline 
in college-age students. 
"Many people will change 
their jobs several times during 
their life," explained Dr. Allen. 
"This puts additional pressures 
on general education, deman- 
ding a solid foundation that will 
allow for easier adaptation to 
The faculty's concern is in 
developing new programs to 
meet these needs, and Dr. Allen 
cautions students against 
limiting their education into 
narrow channels which will 
constrict their job opportunities 
and/or changes in the future. 

Dr. Allen also encourages 
students to take part in the 
spiritual and social activities of- 
fered here at Southern so as not 
to miss out in their total college 
experience. He, himself, was 
very involved in sports during 
his college days and enjoys par- 
ticipating in them even now. 
And, of course, he follows the 
Los Angeles Dodgers. 

"I feel that one of the great 
strengths of this college is that 
it is so solid in all three areas of 
college life: spiritual, social, 
and academic," said Dr. Allen. 
"Although acacemics is my 
main concern, 1 look forward 
to being on campus with the 
students and having them par- 
ticipate in the other activities." 

Without a doubt, Dr. Allen 
will contribute a lot to our col- 
lege, but he would like the 
students to know that they also 
make a difference. "Good 
academic performance 

challenges a teacher," he 
stated, "and attentiveness and 
appreciation encourages him. 
These things have a very big im- 
pact on the academic level 
which is achieved."

some of those issues that never 
seem to die, such as the rising 
cost of Christian education and 
the name change of our 

Let me separate the issues. 
First of all, the rising cost of 
education will always be an 
issue. Mr. Reiner was attending 
some meetings for the Adven- 
tist colleges' business managers 
and brought back a report and 
Southern is still-next to 
Oakwood, they are still the 
lowest, but it is because they 
receive subsidies from the 
General Conference-the lowest 
costing college. That is little 
comfort when there is still a 
$2000 gap between resources 
and charges, but I still believe 
that where there is a will there 
is a way. We have a commit- 
ment to doing whatever we can 
to help students (work their 
way through college). We 
recently repurchased the 
broomship, and it is now 
generating $6000 a month in 
student labor credit. Our 
REACH program is another 
evidence of that commitment. 
It is all going to cost money. 
But we believe that with some 
creative work with students and 
by opening up more oppor- 
tunities for student labor, those 
who really want an Adventist 
Christian education can get it. 

As for the name change, there 
is still a board meeting charged 
with the rsponsibility of study- 
ing it. There has been some 
study. Probably within the next 
week, a survey will be going out 
to the alumni, feeling their opi- 
nions on the name. We have 
noticed that some of the alum- 
ni are somewhat unhappy but 
more so about the process than 
the name change. 
Just one last thought, Dr. 
Wagner. What message would 
you want both faculty and 
students to remember through 
this coming school year? 

Relationship with the Lord is 
fundamental to everything else

Southern Cynic 

Ramblings of a Fried Mind 

g y Victor Czerkasij 

I Have you ever had a cynical 
I day? I'm having one right 
I now. In fact, it started when. I 

made myself some oatmeal 
I tn is morning. "Stir oats into 
I briskly boiling water." Brisk- 
|ly? Is that a word for boiling 
I water? I'd suppose we'd all be 
■brisk if we were boiled. Who's 
■ the guy on the Quaker Oats 
|box? Why is he smiling so 

much? Probably because he's 
lonopoly on oats. Why 
i is it Quaker? Are there Catho- 
lic oats too? What's this with 
Ehe honey jar? "Retains all 

jriginal minerals and ele- 
," Sounds full of metal 
Is that like "fortified 
iron?" That's on all 

:ereal boxes. I bought a box of 

I'Halfsies" yesterday. Does 
;an it's half full? Maybe 
It's for halfwits. Am I getting 
insulted? There's that dumb 
■Quaker guy again. (Does he 
Bike my kitchen or something?) 

Maybe Halfsies are for people 
who don't want to go all the 
way, just half-way. Can that 
mean something else? Did you 
ever fight for the free inside? 
Did you ever win? Did you 
ever buy a cereal just for the 
prize? Did you know that if 
you opened the bottom first 
you could get the prize easier? 
Did you know that if you forgot 
the opened bottom, Cap'n 
Crunch would be getting 
crunched all over the floor? 
What happened to Quisp? 
Why do sugar-cereals have 
prizes and not Product 19? 
These are serious questions. 
Did you ever stick Chiquita 
banana stickers on your nose? 
Here's a can of Shasta soda. It 
says they want a pop. Should 
we give it to "them? If they 
wanted a soda, they'd ask for 
it. It says it's strawberry soda. 
That's why the letters are red. 
You wouldn't find a red root- 

beer can, would you? Why are 
Sprite cans green? Sprite's 
not green. It says real-lemon 
lime flavor-exclamation 
mark. Am I supposed to be 
excited too? Here's some Oil 
ofOIay. It says"Become beau- 
tiful-use Oil of Olay." I never 
used it. Am I ugly? No 
comment. Oil of Olay looks 
like Pepto-Bismol. Is it? do 
you remember Dippity-do? I 
used to smear it as a kid. My 
mother smeared me. Here's a 
bottle of Thousand Island 
dressing. It says that it is "A 
simply delightful salad dres- 
sing." Delightful? Should I 
talk to it? What do I do if it 
answers? Why does Ma Bell 
keep wanting me to reach out 
and touch someone? You 
could get your fingers broken. 
Ever see a new car ad? Why is 
there always a bikini-clad 
woman lying on the hood? 
Does she come with it? If not. 

they should tell her to go home 
and buy some clothes. Am I 
missing something? Remem- 
ber being in mixed company in 
academy, at a faculty home 
watching TV? Remember how 
quiet it got when Cathy Rigby 
came on? It was very embar- 
rassing. It must have been 
more embarrassing to find out 
you couldn't reply on Rely 
anymore. What's happening 
to our country? Who is 
Jorache? Is that French for 
"HORSE" I always see a 
little horse head on Jordache 
jeans. Maybe its 

saying you have to have a 
horse-like rear. (I wear Levis). 
What about Gloria Vander- 
bilt? She's so ugly. Maybe she 
thinks Pepto-Bismol is Oil of 
Olay. Why is her name on her 
jeans? Maybe it makes her 
feel good to know millions are 
sitting on her name. She's 
strange. Strange and ugly. 

Maybe that's why she has so 
much more money than I do. 
Here's the cover for Good 
Housekeeping. On the cover it 
says, "As she drew back 
breathlessly, she longed to 
hear his words." They write 

at Red Food Store will buy it, 
and read the cheap novel 
inside. It usually works. My 
wife fell for it, that's why I'm 
reading it. What is it I don t 
say that she longs to hear? Is 
it, "I took out the garbage?" 
Who draws back breathlessly? 
I suppose they do that at the 
business office a lot. 
Hmmm, "...he took heF 
creamy white shoulders in his 
strong hands. She swooned at 
the scent of masculinity. He 
stared hard at her lush, red 
lips..." Not bad. They must be 
fortified with iron.

sunset. Not wanting to be 
trampled upon in his efforts to 
retrieve the t pig, he refused to 
enter the sty.

the evening, two hits of the

faculty and the general public 

Lir campus this week. 
Dr. Harold R. Milliken, pro- 
I fessor of biology at La Sierra, 
I California, has made a study of 
| effective learning methods and 
shared them at two 
I meetings in Summerour Hall 
I and at our general assembly last 
| Tuesday. 

When Dr. William Allen ac- 
repted the position of Vice- 
President for Academic Ad- 
ministration, he was told, "One 
of the best things you can do 
for Southern College is to get 
Hal Milliken on the SC cam- 
' To which Dr. Allen 
responded, "It's already been 

Dr, Milliken is not only a 
former colleague of our Dr. 
Allen, but is a former teacher 
t Shenandoah Valley Academy 
where he taught our college 
president Dr. John Wagner, 
whom he recalls as "a very 
good student." 
Dr. Milliken will be on our 

campus the entire week of 
September 9 to 14 meeting with 
classes and individuals. Those 
wishing to meet with him may 
make arrangements through 
Carole Haynes at the Teaching 
Learning Center. 

If one doesn't catch him while 
he is here you can listen to his 
tape at the TLC-or buy one 
from him. His address is, "The 
Key to Learning Unlimited," 
5420 Sierra Vista Ave, River- 
side, CA 92505. 

The tape captures the essence 
of his philosophy and techni- 
ques. Some quotes, "The lear- 
ning of learning has been large- 
ly left to chance.. .visualization 
ability, not innate intelligence 
affects grades... the ability to 
visualize can be learned." 

On his tape he quotes a 
psychologist, "Anyone can 
learn anything if it is broken 
down into small enough 
pieces." Some specific techni- 
ques to accomplish this: 
memorize in groups of three, 
play largo Baroque music in the 
background while studying, use 

large flashcards, notes and 
books, spend less time notetak- 
ing in class and visualize. 

He views the mind as "a 
multisensory visual processor 
and not primarily a word pro- 
cessor. ..capable of learning 
large volumes of material 
rapidly, easily and permanent- 
ly." He believes that if we take 
techniques that the top students 
use and teach them to 'average' 
students, they too will be able 
to learn well. 

He cites one example of a 
history student who decided to 
give his method a try. She quit 
notetaking and instead stared 
out the window during the lec- 
ture and visualized the events. 
Though not recommended for 
all, this technique worked very 
well for her. 

Positive attitude is important. 
He recommends that you avoid 
negative thinking and people 
who do. "Buy some positive 
thinking books and read a few 
pages everyday." He concludes 
his tape with, "Success to each 
of you." 

Mac Comes 


Brent Van Arsdell 
Mac Frampton returned for 
his "first concert of the fall 
I season" to a "a larger au- 
dience,"than when he last came 
I to Southern 2 years ago. Com- 
| paring audiences Mac said, "It 
I was a wonderful response 
before, and it was wonderful 
tonight." Senior education ma- 
jor Kent Greve testified, "This 
the best of all the Artist 
Adventure Series that I have 
been to." 

"Awesome, it left me 
breathless," said Benjamin 
Santana. "He has what it takes 
to play piano," he continued. 
Frampton's selections ranged 
from classical to pop. He can 
Play anything. "If I know it I'll 
Play it for you; and if I don't 
know it. . .I'll play it for you 
anyway." Mac said before tak- 
ing twenty favorites for his con- 
cluding medley. He did what he 
promised. The requests includ- 
ed a diversity of styles such 
as:"The Warsaw Concerto", 
"Endless Love", "Prelude in C 
sharp minor", "MASH", and 
"Rocky Top". 

The more popular tunes of the 
medley where greeted with 
spontaneous applause. Some 
unexpected variations such as 
e recurrance of "Rocky Top" 

in a minor key brought smiles 
and laughter. 

Frampton took the time to 
relate his musical life history.

This practice has evidently 
paid off. He has performed 
over 1500 concerts in the last 
decade throughout the US, 
Canada, Europe, and the Mid- 
dle East. He has 60 more con- 
certs booked before Christmas. 

The music he played was 
greeted with varying responses. 
John Wagner, President of 
Southern College, called it, 
"Interesting." James Clark, 
senior computer science major, 
"Pretty good," Another stu- 
dent, Debra Odell, said it was, 

Most people enjoyed the con- 
cert immensely and were duly 
impressed. When asked to com- 
ment, Carmen Perez said, 
"Liberace-eat your heart out." 

Typesetting Made Easy 

The Southern Accent has 
recently acquired a new typeset- 
ting machine to aid in the pro- 
duction of its paper. The Com- 
pugraphic MCS typesetting 
system is a specialized computer 
designed for paper production. 

The machine was installed in 
the latter part of the summer. 

MCS was installed to instruct 
Jook Ting Shim (SA Presi- 
dent), Dennis Negron (Accent 
Editor) and John Seaman 
(Assistant Accent Editor) on 
the machine functions. 
The new Compugraphic 
Typesetter arose out of the need 
for a more reliable machine. 
The older one began having 
major breakdowns at more fre- 
quent intervals and soon it 
became apparent that the 
machine was more trouble than 
it was worth. Maureen Mayden 
(1893-84 Accent Editor) push- 
ed to get a new Compugraphic 
and the Senate voted to obtain 
the machine. It was not certain 
at this point what machine 
would be purchased. Several 
options were available, one be- 
ing the suggestion of acquiring 
a daisy-wheel computer printer. 
The poor-print quality and 
non-versatility ruled out this 

option. The decision was final- 
ly made to purchase the MCS 

The funds for the $15,000 
system came from Student 
Association surplus over the 
past decade and the jog-a-thon 
fund raiser which contributed 
to the project. The large sum of 
money spent will hopefully be 
justified by the speed in which 
the paper will be produced and 
the low cost of maintenance. 
The only preventive 
maintenance which needs to be 
done on the machine is the 
periodic cleaning of a small 
filter on the bottom of the 
typesetter. During the training 
session on the use of the 
machine.the trainer commented 
that the production of the 
Southern Accent should be cut 
in half when all the capabilities 
of the machine are being 

The versatility of the MCS can 
be seen when compared to the 
older Compugraphic machine. 
The MCS is capable of creating 
a much larger letter size then 
the older version, and this 
allows for headlines to be typed 
rather than making the headline 
letter-by-letter in a headline 
machine. Where the old Com- 

pugraphic could only print one 
column at a time, the new MCS 
can print five columns side by 
side. The MCS system also 
enhances advertisements with 
its versatility. 

At this point it appears that 
the MCS Compugraphic system 
will be well worth the money. 
Accent Editor Negron com- 
ments, "this is probably the 
best major project that the SA 
has taken on in quite a few 
years." The efficiency of the 
machine will allow the staff to 
focus on quality and content in 
order to produce an effective 
student newspaper.

A Statement of Mission 

Last week I made a reference to the school's statement of mis- 
sion Many of us probably have never read that paragraph found 
in the inner flap of the bulletin. This statement helps guide 
Southern College in its policy making. Without it, this school 
would lose its sense of direction. No answer could be given to 
the question "Why?" And when that question cannot be 
answered, few appreciate the rules and regulation, the lifestyle, 
and the order of things on a Seventh-day Adventist campus. In 
order that people may understand my decisions as editor this year, 
I wish to state my statement of mission. 

Because Southern College is a Christian institution, I believe that 
all aspects of the school should reflect Christianity, including the 
student newspaper. Some may say, then, that I am following the 
footsteps of the Adventist Review or the Southern Columns . They 
may feel that it is impossible for me to reach the proper heights 
that a student newspaper should because I must either be another 
theological publication or a public relations tool for the school. 

Contrary to that opinion, neither of the two are true although 
the Southern Accent is a public relations tool to an extent. It is 
possible to be a Christian newspaper and report both good and 
bad news. It is also possible to print a "Southern Cynic" column 
and the "Classifieds," and still possible to be serious and funny 
within the same issue. A Christian newspaper, however, loses its 
label when only the bad is emphasized and rarely the good, when 
raunchy and distateful articles are printed and not the opposite. 
As Southern Accent editor, then, I reserve the right to use my 
Christian judgment in deciding whether an article, a letter, or a 
classified is the proper material to put in an issue. 

There is a time to let 

things happen and 

a time to make 

things happen.

Mr. Merlin Wittenberg has

Although his work will often

tenberg has taught elementary 
school, the last seven of which 
have been at Spalding Elemen- 
tary School in Collegedale. 

Wittenberg is an alumnus of 
Southern College and also a 
former staff member. He 
received his B.S. in Elementary 
Education and later earned a 
masters in administration and

was extremely innovative in his

strong spiritual program.

these qualities will carry over 
into Wittenberg's new position.

"If a mother smokes (mari- 
juana) in the same room an in- 
fant lies and the infant breathes 
the cannaboids in the 
smoke,.. .the baby would be in- 
toxicated," says Dr. Ingrid L. 
Lantner in an interview in the 
September 1984 issue of 
LISTEN magazine , 

Dr. Lantner, a practicing 
pediatrician in Ohio, has lec- 
tured widely on the dangers of 
marijuana use. She has alos 
testified before the U.S. Senate 
and has appeared on numerous 
TV and radio shows. In the 
LISTEN interview Dr Lantner 
streese dangers to the children 
of marijuana users. 

"I see babies that are 
high, "say Dr Lantner. "I have 
had several mothers say to me, 
'I get the baby high, and the pot 
keeps sleeping for hours. It 
doesn't even require any 

feedings.' " 

Another problem that Dr. 
Lantner reports is that of 
parents who offer marijuana to 
their young children. Some of 
these children start actively us- 
ing the drugat the age of eigh- 
teen months or two years. This 
problem is particularly hard to 
deal with, since getting a child 
high is not currently considered 
child abuse, so social agencies 
are reluctant to intervene. 

Dr. Lantner goes on to say 
that children who see their 
parents using marijuana will 
probably start using it 
themselves at an early age. 
"And if children start using 
drugs early," she says, "there 
is almost no chance that they 
will be able to stop ot turn back 
time and mature normally, 
because they actually 
know what normal

Tuesday, the day after 
registration, was my predestin- 
ed fall cleaning day. Put simp- 
ly, that meant I finally got to 
clean out my desk, including 
the bottom drawer. I seem to be 
collecting half -used notebooks 
the bottom drawer of my 
desk. Some don't even belong 

3 me: these ratty ones with the 
covers torn off of them must 
belong to my brother. I know 
they are old since several aren't 
college ruled, and it has been 
years since Rich or I would be 
caught writing on such 
primeval paper. I can't throw 
them away in good conscious, 
and it will be ages until I use 
them as scrap paper, so I in- 
dustriously decided to write let- 

Lori Phone Home 

ters on them. 
In theory, this is a great idea 
because I write tons of letters, 
but sometimes I want to write 
on something pretty or pastel, 
so the ol' notebook is tossed 
back into the drawer. Unfor- 
tunately, I have developed the 
habit of writing in the middle 
the notebook where the pages 
are free from wrinkles and 
word imprints; then absent- 
mindedly closing the notebook, 
the half-written letter suf- 
focates between the pages and 
dies of old age. 
This year I could put the 
ultimate off no longer. I , 
decided to throw away these old 
faithfuls. Quickly acting upon 
my decision before I could 

change my mind, 1 flipped 
through the pages for 
valuables. I spotted my own 
handwriting and thumbed back 
until I found it. 
It was an old letter to my best 
friend, Heather. I read the first 
few lines and remembered that 
this was the letter when I was 
trying to convince her to come 
down to Orlando "to see me 
before you 'journey' to the 
other end of the country." I 
begged her to give me just two 
days of her time before she 
moved to Colorado with her 
family. "This is our last chance 
to explore Florida together 
before I move to Collegedale 
next month," I wrote, 
desperately attempting to see 

her once more, since I feared I 
would never see her again. 

I think I was still in shock at 
the time I wrote the letter. 
Heather and I were always far 
apart, but I was the only one 
who moved around. She was 
supposed to stay at home base 
so I would have somewhere to 
return to. I couldn't believe she 
would be gone. 

My letter ended there, with no 
conclusion. I seemed to close 
my unsolved problem between 
the pages of the book to be 

So there I sat, in the middle of 
my floor, among crumpled 
paper and aged spiral 
notebooks, thinking-thinking 
not about Heather now, but 

about God and how ironic it is 
that all of a sudden I realize 
how much He parallels 
Heather. Far away, yet He is 
always there if I need Him. I 
move around, but He stays, let- 
ting me know that I have a 
home to come to if I choose. I 
feel guilty that I have waited so 
long to let him know my choice. 
Have I waited too long? Is that 
why He had me find this letter- 
to open my eyes to my procras- 
I think back and remember 
why I never finished the letter- 
I phoned Heather instead. 
Maybe God is trying to tell me 
something; He's afraid of being 
closed in The Book and suf- 
focated between the pages. He 
wants me to phone Him. 

Commitment Achieved 

La Ronda Curtis 

Last weekend was SC's 15th 
annual Collegiate Committ- 
ment Weekend. Many com- 
mittments were made verbally, 
actively, and some silently. 

The weekend got off to a good 
beginning with Ralph Peay's 
chapel talk about living up to 
our label. Ralph Peay is the 
Youth Director for the 
Southern Union. He has at- 
tended SC's commitment 
weekends for several years. 
However, he says that this year, 
"the spirit on campus is very 
positive." He talked about a 
special "vibration" in the 
students that will make this a 
good school year. 

Also, it was nice to have the 
Youth Directors here for the 
weekend. Bill Wood, Jim 
Pleasants, Lewis Hendershot, 
Meryle Rouse, and C.E. 
Bracebridge were the directors 
here representing their respec- 
tive conferences. Thursday 
night the faculty challenged 

these youth directors to a game 
of Softball. In years past, the 
faculty has usualy won by a 
wide margin. This time it was 
a very close game. The faculty 
did not take the lead until the 
sixth inning, hanging on for the 
lead, so the record is still good. 

Friday night was a big 
highlight of the weekend. Elder 
Tetz, this year's primary 
speaker, talked about making 
commitments and keeping 
them. He was also the speaker 
the the Sabbath worship hour. 
There he spoke about Chris- 
tians being a "burning bush" 
for God. 

Also on Sabbath, Dale Tun- 
nell presented a Sabbath School 
program that made students 
and church members aware of 
the religious activities for the 
C.A.R.E. (Collegiate Adventist 
Reaching Everyone) ministry 
on campus. For the afternoon, 
Tunnell and Jim Herman in- 
vited the students to take 

religious surveys and hand out 
literature to people in Summit 
and Eastridge. Eighty-two 
students accepted the invitation 
and rode to Chattanooga on 
buses. Tunnell said, "it was a 
successful outing. The people 
who went out didn't want to 
quit when the time came." 
Daniel Drapiza, a student who 
went along, said that he was a 
little nervous about going, but 
it was fun once he got started, 
and he met a lot of nice people 
who were interested in what he 
was sharing. 

To close the Sabbath, a 
singspiration on the steps of 
Lynn Wood Hall was attended 
by a large group, filling prac- 
tically all the stairs. Tunnell 
plans to make this a regular oc- 
casion since so many students 
enjoyed it. It was a pleasant 
way to end the Sabbath. 

Sunday morning many 
students found their way to the 
student park for a free pancake 
breakfast. Both faculty 
members and youth directors 
were working hard over the 
grills to keep the line of 
students moving. This get 
together ended a successful 
Commitment Weekend. 

We the People . . . 

^Why Is Reagan So Popular? 

Russell Duerksen 

Detroit, 1980...the convention 
hall falls silent as the 
Republican nominee quotes 
Franklin D. Roosevelt. Dallas, 
1984. ..that same nominee 
smiles broadly as he is inter- 
rupted numerous times with 
shouts of "four more years" 
during the course of his accep- 
tance speech. Two seemingly 
diverse but similar events.yet 
they typify the political career 
of Ronald Wilson Reagan. 

Few modern American politi- 
cians have as forcefully express- 
ed and acted upon their basic 
political beliefs , as has Ronald 
Reagan. In his career as a 
politician, he has discontinued 
deeply-held philisophies, 
challenged basic ideology, and 
by providing a rightward course 
for government, created the 
greatest upheaval in American 
politics since Franklin 

His politics, strongly conser- 
vative, are to the right of the 
average American and a recent 
poll showed that less than 40% 
of the populace were in total 
agreement with the majority of 
them. Yet he held a 12-17% 
lead on his Democratic oppo- 
nent, Walter Mondale, at the 
start of the Fall campaign. Why 

is this so, and what are the 

reasons behind this political 

First of all, Reagan has shown 

a mastery of the 'bully pulpit" 

of the Presidency; not since the 
era of the Roosevelts, has one 
done this. He is able to design 
his presentation to fit his image. 
This ability, along with his 
natural charisma, allows him to 
function as the "Great Com- 
municator" and to deliver his 
message so pleasantly and ef- 
fectively that many who would 
not normally do, so support his 
politics without totally realizing 
hat they are supporting. 
Secondly, his unique abilities 
have allowed for the formation 
of what has been called "the 
Teflon Presidency." Through a 
combination of charisma, good 
humor, political savvy, and 
good luck, he has been able to 
prevent his political opponents 
from assigning his presidency 
responsibility for politically- 
damaging events, such as the 
Lebannese car-bomb at- 
tack. Similar events would have 
seriously challenged the ad- 
ministartions of Ford, Nixon, 
or Carter. 

The third aspect of his 
strength is in his style of leader- 
ship. While Carter had a detail- 
oriented, college-professor style 
of presidency, emphasizing 
problems and asking solutions, 
Reagan has a more down-line 
approach, telling the people 
what's right about America and 
then getting into the problems. 
Granted, the emphasis on God, 
motherhood, and apple pie is 

not especially relevant to the 
major issues, but the average 
citizen wants, wishes, and needs 
to hear something positive 
about himself and his country, 
and that need is an essential 
part of the American presiden- 
cy which the majority of the the 
more recent presidents have 

The final reason for his unique 
popularity is the fact that he is 
a known celebrity. Having been 
in the public eye for approx- 
imately 20 years, he has ex- 
pressed his political philosophy, 
and by and large, has done 
what he said he would, even 
under strong pressure to do 
otherwise. This adherance to 
his beliefs has created respect, 
and perhaps some support, 
because the average person 
honors consistency and stabili- 
ty, even if he doesn't agree with 
what is being done. 

Although much has been said 
about the "Reagan Revolu- 
tion" and America's shift to the 
right, the shift is much less 
substantial than it appears. The 
large lead which the President 
enjoys is more a commitment to 
a man than to a collection of 
political ideas, to a "New 
Beginning" in American 

In closing, let us consider a lit- 
tle history. Fifty years ago,

unstoppable philisophy and 
political movement to change 
the way America functioned. 
Then, only a few years after 
Roosevelt was gone, his party 
lost the congress, the White 
House, and its momentum. 
Ronald Reagan does well to 
assume the mantle of 
Roosevelt, for he is truly his 
equal, but he, his party, and all 
America would do well to 
remember the records of 
history and the results of 
building a majority around a 
man instead of an idea. 

Politicians: Past, Present, and Future 

Gart Curtis 

For the most part, students 
here at Southern College tend 
to think of politics as too far 
removed to make any dif- 
ference. Whether it's the left or 
the right in the White House, 
life around the dorm, up at the 
library, or even down at the CK 
doesn't change much. We let 
our enthusiasm for current 
events slide and take only a 
mild interest in the micro scene 
of school politics. 

But three SC student politi- 
cians, Glenn McElroy, Russell 
Duerksen, and J.T. Shim, par- 
ticipated out there in the "real 
world" of politics last summer. 

Glenn McElroy, last year's 
S.A. President, worked under 
Sen. Denton from Alabama as 
a paid senate intern. 

After submitting a resume and 
"being interviewed, Glenn was 
: of twenty people chosen 
from one-hundred-eighty ap- 
plicants for one month 

Glenn, one of the five interns 
chosen for the month of 
August, worked in the legisla- 
n section of the Senator's of-

tuents, and helping to prepare 
the Senator's briefing book on 

After graduating from SC 
Glenn will go on to law school 
and from there possibly into 
politics. Law, however, is his 
primary interest right now. 

Russell Duerksen was a floor 
aid for Sen. Goldwater and 
Sen. Deconcini, both of 
Arizona, in Washington D.C. 
last summer. 

He got involved through the 
U.S. Senate Youth Program 
The U.S.S.Y.P. holds a yearly 
contest in which two delegates 
from each state are chosen; 
Russell was one of the privileg- 
ed few. 

As a floor aid, Russell's ma- 
jor responsibility was to keep 
track of the Senator's papers 
(many of which were classified 
documents) and have them 
ready and in order upon com- 
mand. Russell has also worked 
the two previous summers in 
Arizona for Sen. Goldwater, 

organizing youth drives design- 
ed to increase young people's 
interest in voting on the 
Republican ticket. 

Russell wants to go to 
Georgetown School of Law and 
from there into national politics 
(but never as a bureaucrat). 

J.T. Shim (SC S.A. Pres.) 
worked as an unpaid intern in 
Congressman Albert Gore, 
Jr.'s office for two weeks in 

He got the job by doing a lot 
of pavement pounding around 
the House office buildings, 
dropping frequently by the 
Tennessee delegate's office, and 
finallly getting connected 
through "a friend of a friend." 

J.T. answered the telephone, 
responded to constituent mail, 
compiled statistics of the Con- 
gressman's attendance and 
voting record at various 
meetings, and searched 
newspapers to clip articles per- 
taining to the Congressman's 
business. He also contacted 
hospitals to look for liver (live 
human liver); the Congressman 
is heading a campaign for a 

more efficient way of getting 
liver from donors to those who 
are in need. 

While J.T. does not have any 
specific directions in politics 
yet, he wants to keep that op- 
tion open. To do that he will try 
to get a White House 
Fellowship which is an unpaid 
year-long job in the White 
House working for a Cabinet 
secretary, the Vice President, or 
senior member of the Presi- 
dent's staff. 

Though each of the three had 
different experiences, they all 
agreed that they had an infor- 
mative overview of the 
American political process. 
This, combined with the lessons 
in time management and in 
dealing with large numbers of 
people who have varying opi- 
nions, not only helped them 
with their duties in the S.A., 
but it reinforced their desires to 
become more involved in mak- 
ing the decisions that shape our 
country's future. 

Only 3 Down 

At this time last year 
1625 students had en- 
rolled at Southern 
College. 1984's fall 
Semester compares 
well with 1622 stu- 
dents enrolled, in spite 
of the fact that the ad- 
ministration had ex- 
pected a drop of 150. 

Your Destiny is Known 

tori Heinsman 
Destiny is an appropriate 
name for a Christian drama 
group. The title itself conjures 
up thoughts of one's own 
ultimate fate and fits the pur- 
pose of the seventeen-person 
group that performs in area 
churches and academies. 
Destiny ministers through 
short skits based on Christian 
themes. The group is also incor- 
porating some pantomime into 
their routine, reasoning that by 
sticking with skits, they will 
have fewer props and added 
/ariety. Kevin Rice, Destiny's 
itudent director, is excited 
ibout the group's potential. 
The members this year include 
the following: 

Terri Adams 

Josette Alexis 

Shannon Born 

Cameron Cole 

David Denton 

Shelly Duncan 

Monte Giles 

Carole Huenergardt 

Bob Jones 

Lori Johnston 

Joni King 

Tim Minear 

Kevin Rice 

George Turner 

Cindy Watson. 

Mark Weddle 

Connie Williams 

Kevin plans to keep the group 

versatile by having at least two 

people ready for each part. 

Destiny's beginning perfor- 
mances will be September 15 
and 22 at the Collegedale 
Church for Sabbath School. 
After this follows occasional 
Sabbath School skits and a Fri- 
day night production. 

Although we don't see them 
often, Destiny is hard at work 
preparing more skits and per- 
forming on the road. In Kevin's 
opinion, academies are the 
most fun to visit because the 
group forms a relationship with 
the academy students and can 
communicate with them. 

David Smith, Destiny's facul- 
ty sponsor, has additional plans 
for the group and is arranging 
activities that include an inter- 
collegiate rally in North

Subliminally Speaking 

Campus Digest News Service 
The first conscious knowledge 
many college students have of 
subliminal perception probably 
revolves around a discussion 
held in an advertising or 
marketing class. (Subliminal 
perception is that which relics 
on messages buried within a 
media, perceived by the 
subconscious-even though they 
can't be seen or heard con- 
sciously.) But disagreement 
abounds on whether subliminal 
messages really exist. ..or 
whether they are figments of 
the imagination. 
Studies are inconclusive on the 
existence or effectiveness of 
subliminal messages, but 
enough evidence existed by 
1974 for the Federal Com- 
munications Commission to 
warn its licensees against using 
subliminal advertising over 
public airwaves. 

Advertisers, of < 

. deny 

use of sneaky messages in their 
ads, despite media critics' 
charges that a great many ads- 
-both broadcast and print-are 
bombarding us with subliminal 
connections between products 
and sexual messages or buying 
suggestions. Cigarette and li- 
quor ads have been accused of 
flashing death symbols at view- 
ers/readers for those who seem 
to enjoy flirting with danger. 
Now, however, a small 
Michigan company, Stimutech, 
has introduced a positive way 
to use subliminal perception. 
By using a TV set, home com- 
puter, $90 interface (connecting 
device) and $40 program, 
Stimutech proposes using this 
controversial conditioning to 
lose weight, control stress, stop 
smoking or drinking, boost 
career success, or improve sex 
life, athletic skills or study 



The computer program flashes 
messages ("I am confident" to 
"I can stop smoking") across 
the screen at l/30th of a second 
every 2'/2 minutes. Stimutech 
doesn't plan any experiments 
testing the effectiveness of the 

"What we know today is that 
the brain sees and hears more 
than the eyes and ears," says 
Walace LaBenne, and East 
Lansing (Mich.) psychology 
professor. "We want to bypass 
the censorship of the left brain 
(which evaluates) and go to the 
right brain (which controls 
habits and attitudes)." 
LaBenne suggests using the new 
product in conjunction with 
therapy for best effectiveness. 

But despite almost 30 years of 
suspicion of its existence, hard 
evidence of subliminal percep- 
tion is still inconclusive.

shot that barely cleared the fence to cut 
the deficit to one. An out later, Al 
Travis (rippled and came around on

In other slowpitch action Sunday, 
Toby Fowler and Greg Cain homered 
to pace John Hinkle's team. 

Fowler's blast got Hinkle on the board 
first with his towering shot leading off 
the third inning, but Price came back 
to take the lead as Eddie Soler and 
Rinaldi Rada scored on a smash to left- 
center by John Toms. Hinkle answered 
with two in the fifth and put the game 
away with three in the sixth. Cain's line- 
drive homerun leading off the seventh 
gave them their final run.

Price didn't fare well in their first game

Southern Hosts 

Cindy Watson 

The triathalon coming up 
Sunday, September 23, will be 
a first for Southern College. 
One-event competitions have 
been held previously be never 
swimming, biking, and running 
all in one competition. 
At 7 a.m., the race will start 
off with a '/imile freestyle swim 
at the Cohutta Springs lake. 
Then one must ride from 
Cohutta to Collegedale which is 
• 28.5 miles, ending where the 
run begins, in front of the gym. 
The jaunt around the church, 
up to a cemetery, through the 
ball field and around again two 
more times make up the 6.2 
mile run. 

Coach Kamieneski guesses a 
good timing for the whole event 
will be a little under three 
hours. The tuning of the race is 
difficult to predict as the 
caliber of the athletes. 
However, Kamieneski estimates 
a good 15 to 20 minutes for the 
swim, 2 hours for the bike ride, 
and 40 minutes for the run. 
This averages out to be a 40 
minute per mile swim, 12 to 15 
mph bike ride, and a 6.5 minute 
per mile run. 
Contestants will be competing 
against all age groups and both 
sexes. The competition will not 
be open to the public; however, 
a few surrounding academies 
will be participating. ' 'This year 
will serve as a sort of trial run," 
says Kamieneski. "Next year 
we'll know more about it, invite 
the participation of the public, 
and group contestants accor- 
ding to age and gender." 

Medallions will be awarded to 
each of the expected 24 to 25 
contestants. Special awards will 
be given to the academy with 
the four best contestants and, 
naturally, to the overall. "Next 
year will be even bigger and bet- 
ter," promises Kamieneski.

Southern Cynic 

The Near Death of a Space Cadet 

Rob Lastine 

The mind of a child contains 
i surprising number of adven- 
tures, all that's needed is a lit- 
tle imagination to give those 
adventures life. 
Between 1964 and 1968 my 
family lived in Virginia Beach, 
Virginia, only seventeen miles 
from the ocean. 
One of my childhood adven- 
ures had to do with the excite- 
ment of sailing off into the 
unrisein pursuit of a forgot - 
sn continent and the monetary 
ain it would bring to the man 
nth such honorable intentions. 
While at the beach with my 
amily, who were enjoying a 
ew hours of relaxing sun and 
furf, I realized my chance and 
;et out in my small ship. To 
most, it was simply an air mat- 
ress, but to me it was a ship. 
Barely 200 yards from shore a 
oice came to me. Was it divine 
inspiration meant, to assure me 
that my quest could be realiz- 
ed? No, it sounded too familiar 
to be divine inspiration. 
Through the haze of make 
believe I recognized reality. 
My father's voice tone in- 
dicated that my mission had 
been aborted; it also meant that 

I was to return to port as soon 
as possible 

Upon reaching the safety of 
my native soil, my father ex- 
plained the facts of sailing and 
the many dangers that await a 
voyager foolish enough to im- 
agine an air mattress to be a 
sea-worthy ocean vessel. I 
reluctantly promised to 
postpone my trip. 

It was about this time that my 
brother and I came into posses- 
sion of a Go-Cart, but, if a boy 
chose to, it could become a high 
speed inter-stellar space craft. 

Our space vehicle had enough 
room for only one warrior of 
sound enough heart to endure 
its many hidden surprises. One 
such surprise was the tendency 
of the throttle to stick in the 
wide open position, and always 
at the worst time. 

One day the space cadets from 
the neighborhood were invited 
to pilot the craft, but not before 
they were carefully briefed on 
its controls and orbital limits. 

My first two passes through 
the galaxy weren't any different 
from the many missions that 
had been logged before, so I in- 
vited my best friend and 

neighbor, George, to ride with 
me while I explained the con- 
trols. The only place for him to 
ride, however, was between the 
rear mounted engines. Then it 

Upon reaching the end of our 
galaxy, or was it simply the end 
of our street-no time to 
seperate fact from fiction-the 
throttle became stuck in the 
wide open position. 

With lightning speed and 
razor-sharp judgement, the 
craft was placed in an inter- 
space 180 degree directional 
change, but wait, what was that 
sound coming from the back of 
my space craft? A definite yell 
was easily heard over the 
scream of the twin rocket 
boosters under full throttle. A 
quick glance to the rear of the 
craft answered the question 
which lightning speed and 
razor-sharp judgement had 

My comrade, space cadet 
George, who was riding bet- 
ween the rocket boosters had 
been jettisoned in the maneuver 
and appeared to be suffering 
from the frictional build up of 
earth's asphalt atmosphere. 

With the craft's newly ac- 
quired agility, due to a lighter 
payload, its speed increased. 
Alone through the galaxy I 

Suddenly, up ahead, there 
came into view an asteroid 
field, constructed by my fellow 
space cadets. They seemed to 
feel that my turn was over; I 
was, however, unable to com- 
municate to them the gravity of 
the situation I now found 
myself in, and the distance bet- 
ween us was closing rapidly. 

The cadets, mounted on flim- 
sy earth machines called 
bicycles, had placed themselves 
in the path of my unyielding 
craft. This plan's genius was 
my soon-to-be-angry big 
brother, for Don's bicycle and 
that of another cadet were 
chosen as the weakest links in 
the asteroid chain. 

Soon their shouts, along with 
their newly disassembled 
bicycles, were forgotten as I en- 
countered my new menace: 
cross traffic. 

The craft was skillfully 
maneuvered, by a now 
desperate cadet, into the largest 
bush that came into view after 

jumping the curb and re- 
entering earth's orbit. The 
engines stalled, and my grip on 
the wheel relaxed. 

Later the space craft was 
returned to base for repairs. 
Waiting for me was a 
somewhat ill-tempered brother 
and a limping best friend. 

I was de-briefed on the day's 
flight as base commanders 
Jerry and Allene, my parents, 
looked on in concern at their in- 
trepid space traveler as he 
related the tale of the mission 
with its near-death experience 
and the multi-screened, techni- 
colored flash-back of the 
cadet's short interplanetary life. 

Sixteen years seperate that 
story from present day reality. 
In that time many adventures 
have taken place with varying 
degrees of success. 

It appears that the only limits 
to our adventures are those we 
put up to defend ourselves from 
the unknown recesses of our 
minds. Imagine the possibilities 
that exist for those intrepid 
enough to experience their

Collegedale Gets New Pastor 

The Collegedale Seventh-day 
Adventist Church has recently 
informed the Accent of an ex- 
pansion in its pastoral staff. 
Elder Ed Wright, associate 
pastor of the Fresno Central 
Church in California, has 
received and accepted a call to 
the newly-created post of 
Pastor of Family Ministries at 
the campus church. 

Pastor Wright will be coming 
to us after having completed 
eight years of service as Pastor 
of Youth and Family Ministries 
to his large (1500 member) con- 
gregation in central California. 
Prior to this tenure, he attend- 
ed Andrews Unversity, com- 
pleting both his undergraduate 
studies and Masters of Divini- 
ty training there. 

Pastor Wright will have many 
responsibilities at the Col- 
legedale Church although all of 
them relate closely to the con- 
cept of family ministry. He will 
be leading out in the Family 
Life Committee (established for 
the benefit of young married 
couples), operating a program 
of visitation to non-attending 
church members, developing 
small Bible study groups, and 
doing a little communications 
and public relations work. 

The necessity to hire a new 
pastor actually arose two years 
ago when Elder Bruce Aalborg, 
one of Collegedale's assistant 
pastors, accepted a call to 
pastor the Knoxville church. 
His departure left a void in the 
pastoral staff, which only now 

has been filled. 
The delay in filling the posi- 
tion was a result of the finan- 
cial situation the Georgia- 
Cumberland Conference found 
itself in during the last two 
years. With the national 
economic situation looking in 
dire straits, a decrease in tithe 
income, and the Davenport 



ference was forced to do ; 
retrenchment. Although a 
church as large as Collegedale 
requires a staff of at least five 
pastors to cover all the areas of 
ministry at a college campus 
church, it too had to cut back 
on its staff. However, this con- 
ference's financial picture has 
brightened in the last year (see 
box). Elder Wright's accep- 

tance to come to Collegedale 
now allows the other members 
of the pastoral staff-Gordon 
Bietz, Rolland Ruf, Jim Her- 
man, and Gerald Morgan-to 
concentrate on their respective 
areas of ministry. 
Although the exact date of 
Elder Wright's arrival on cam- 
pus is not yet known, we can 
expect his ministry to begin 
around the first part of 
January. Joining the new 
pastor in his ministry will be his 
wife and two young boys. Elder 
Gordon Bietz, Senior Pastor of 
the Collegedale church, com- 
ments, "We are eagerly an- 
ticipating his coming. Elder 
Wright's presence on the 
pastoral staff will enhance our 
program by allowing us to pro- 

vider more comprehensive and 
complete ministry to the church 
and to the community. 

GCC Looking Up 

Financially, the Georgia- 
Cumberland Conference has 
done very well this year. Pro- 
blems that have plagued this con- 
ference and that have caused it 
to cut back on staff are slowly 
being resolved. As of July 31, 
1984, the tithe income has in- 
creased 1.2 percent from last 

Financial resolutions of the 
Davenport crisis are continually 
being made. Currently, the con- 
ference has been awarded, in 
cash, $500,000 by the arbitra- 
tion steering committee formed

Scandiafestival '84 Troupe 
to Perform at SC 

Acrobats from Denmark, 
gymnasts from Sweden, and an 
entertainer from Norway will 
be performing on Sunday even- 
ing, September 23, 7:30 p.m. at 
Southern College of Seventh- 
day Adventists. 

Scandiafestival *84, second 
program in the Artist- 
Adventure Series at Southern 
College, will take place in the 
Physical Education Center on 
the Collegedale campus. 

Members of Scandiafestival 
'84 were selected through com- 
petitions in Scandinavia. "They 
are champions of their 
disciplines," according to 
Everett Schlisner, coordinator 
for the 18 events in the Artist- 
Adventure Series at Southern 

A team of 24 Danish Flying 
Acrobats, ranging in age from 
W to 22, are a part of the 
group. The Flying Acrobats of 
Aarhus formed in 1970, and 
now several hundred boys and 
g'rls train for inclusion in the 
select group of show-gymnasts. 
Their performance fuses 
vaulting, tumbling and tram- 
poline acrobatics, as well as 
s 'nging and folkdancing, back- 
ed up with classical and con- 
temporary music and lighting 
ef fects. The gymnasts train six 
t0 eight hours a week and do re- 
quired exercises at home as 

Team members have made 29 
f °rei gn trips, and achiev- 
ed super^ar status in their own 

mances in Denmark annually. 
In 1982 they won the Interna- 
tional Gymnastics Competition 
in West Germany, upsetting the 
Japanese team which had 
dominated the event for a 
number of years. 
A second distinct group par- 
ticipating in the Scandiafestival 
'84 is the Stockholmsflickorna, 
a gymnastic association of girls 
from Stockholm, Sweden. The 
girls begin training for the 
display team as early as age 5, 
working with a ball to develop 
speed, adroitness, precision, 
and tempo. 
The third group is Rytmgub- 
barna, or the Rhythm Guys, a 
cross-section of teachers, but- 
chers, carpenters, shipyard 
workers, and farmers from 
Gothenburg, Sweden. "Their 
age averages about 52, yet they 
are known for their high-tempo 
gymnastic routines," states 
Vocal highlights of Scan- 
diafestival '84 include The Nor- 
thern Lights, a Danish quartet; 
and "Britt," a folksinger. The 
first-prize winner of the 
Norwegian Young Superstar 
contest, held in July to choose 
Norway's best young enter- 
tainer, also stars in Scan- 
diafestival '84. 
Tickets for the program will 
be available at the door: $3 for 
adults, $2 for senior citizens 
and children under 12, or S7.50 
per family. Students with I.D. 
admitted free. 

Brock Hall to Open Soon 

Lori Selby 

Although it seems as if most 
of the Southern College campus 
has just gotten into the swing of 
school, many of our depart- 
ments are planning changes. 
Within several weeks the Com- 
munications, English, History, 
Foreign Languages, Art, 
Business and Office Ad- 
ministration departments will 
be moving into Brock Hall, the 
new humanities building. They 
will be followed by the Audio 
visual department and by the 
radio station, FM 90.5-WSMC. 
Brock Hall, on the north side of 
off Apison Pike, 

will join Wood Music Building 
as part of our new fine arts 
Dr. Robert Morrison, Chair- 
man of the Division of Arts and 
Letters, commented that he will 
be glad to finally have all his 
departments (Communications, 
English, History, Foreign 
Languages and Art) under one 
roof. According to Dr. Mor- 
rison, some of the special 
features of the new building in- 
clude office space with rooms 
for readers between each office, 
humanities classrooms adjoin- 

mini-windows into the 
classrooms for film and slide 
projector, and two rooms 
designed for a language lab. He 
mentioned plans for a word 
processor for journalism and 
English students. 
The Art facilities include a 
large ceramics classroom with a 
kiln and adequate electricity to 
the pottery wheels. There will 
also be classrooms for drawing 
and design. Close to the Art 
department is a gallery com- 
plete with track lighting in the 
ceiling. Dr. Morrison explain-

The Links of the Chain 

Rob Lastine 

I had been walking through 
this small fishing village for 
some time now, but I still 
wasn't quite sure what is was 
that had drawn me to it. 
Perhaps it was to escape the 
I heat or just to break the 
monotony of California's 
Highway 5; no matter, I was 
here now, and it was a welcom- 
ed change. 

I had left my Honda GL-1000 
the edge of town under a 
shade tree, and, now, after be- 
ing here awhile, I turned and 
started back toward where my 
motorcycle was parked. 

All morning I had been riding. 
In fact this was the 1 1 'th day of 
what had been my dream 

For six years I had attended 
Southern College in Col- 
legedale, Tennessee, and, now, 
after having graduated with my 
degrees, I could do the one 
thing my college curriculum, 
study, and my 43-hour-a-week 
work schedule had not left me 
much time to do--take my 
dream vacation by motorcycle. 

As I watched the fishermen 
returning from their labor with 
their catch and hanging their 
lets up to dry, I realized how 
ate it was getting and walked 
i little faster. 

The sun was slipping further 
toward the west now, and as it 
did, the smell of salt air, carried 
by the light breeze off the 
Pacific Ocean, helped to make 
my decision to leave even more 
difficult. This village was a 
peaceful place, and I really 
didn't want to leave, but had 

While walking back to my 
motorcycle I realized that this 
i perfect vacation, a dream 
come true. 

In the 11 days that I had 
traveled, the weather was near 
perfect. The only rain that did 
fall was mostly at night while I 
was dry in my tent or during the 
heat of the day when it was a 
welcomed relief to my sun- 
dried skin. 

Thousands of miles had been 
measured off by my motorcy- 
cle's odometer. The beauties of 
nature were many: from the 
Mid-Western Plain states to the 
majestic Rocky Mountains of 
Colorado, from the vastness of 
the Grand Canyon in Arizona 
to the overwhelming depth and 
beauty of Zion National Park 
in south-western Utah. The 
solitude of Highway 50 in 
Nevada was also a welcomed 
change to the overcrowded 
cities and towns along the way. 

I sat down on a park bench, 
just for a moment, to reflect 
back on the days events. 

Just this morning I had left 
Paradise, California, where I 
stayed with relatives last night. 
Los Angeles was to be my day's 
destination, and by the map, 
Highway 5 seemed to offer the 
quickest route. However, by 
mid-morning the temperature 
had risen to 96 degrees, and the 
traffic was unmercifully heavy. 
I knew there had to be a better 
way so I pulled off to the side 
of the interstate where, in the 
shade of an overpass, 1 looked 
at my map. 

Now, here on this park bench, 
in the coolness of this peaceful 
village, it came to me-the 
reason I liked California 
Highway 1. But of all the 
villages and towns along the 
coast, why had I stopped at this 
one? As I stood up from where 
I had been sitting, that question 
turned over in my mind. 

All the Fishing vessels were an- 
chored in the harbor now and 
the village was settling down for 
the night, so I hurried on 
through town. 

As I was passing a small shop, 
something on the counter 
caught my eye. I turned and 
walked through the open door 
into the shop. 

The object that had diverted 
my attention was a chain, like 
none I had ever seen. Each link 
had a unique shape and size. As 
I walked closer, I noticed a man 
behind the counter. 

"May I help you young 
man?" he said. My eyes drop- 
ped from the merchant to the 
chain on the counter top. 

"Sir, that sure is an interesting 
chain you have there," I said. 
"Did you make it yourself?" 

"Yes," came his reply. 
"Many years ago 1 made this 
chain to remind my children of 
my love for them. I put it out 
here, on top of the counter, 
where all can see it and ap- 
preciate its value. It's priceless, 
you know!" 

A lump grew in my throat. I 
realized that I could not afford 
this chain, but perhaps I could 
find out more about its 

"How many children do you 
have?" I asked. 

"It's hard to say, young 
man," came his reply, as his 
gaze shifted from me to the 
people passing by on the 
sidewalk in front of his shop. 

"They stop in from time to 
time," he continued, "or they 
call or send letters." 

His eyes fell on mine as he 
went on. 

"My children mean the world 
to me. There is nothing my 
father and I wouldn't do for 

them. That's why I made this 
chain, so they would see the 
love we have for them." 

Before I could ask my next 
question, the white-haired man 
lifted the chain from atop the 
counter, and holding it by its 
largest link, He let it hang 

"You see," he said, "I am a 
fisherman, or perhaps I should 
say, I'm a fisher of men." 

My curiosity about what this 
bronze-skinned man had just 
said was building up inside me. 

"A fisher a men," I exclaim- 
ed, repeating the words he had 
just spoken. 

"Yes son, I cast out my net 
and those who freely enter it are 
then drawn up to where I would 
have them be, with me, here, 
just as you are now." 

"What do you mean?" I ask- 
ed in a trembling voice. "I 
walked into you're store to ad- 
mire that chain on the counter; 
that's all!" The gentleman 
smiled at me and asked, "What 
was it about the chain that drew 
you to it?" 

"The intricate beauty and uni- 
queness of each link," I 
responded, "and the careful at- 
tention to detail that the craft- 
sman used in its forming, that's 
why I came in, just to look at 

"Wouldn't you like to have it? 
Here it's yours." 

I could hardly believe my ears; 
this was what I had been sear- 
ching for ever since reading the 
story, Links of the Chain, the 
story of a craftsman's love for 
his children and his building of 
a chain for each to have as a 
reminder of his love for them. 
Could this be the man of whom 
so much had been written? 

When I could speak again, I 

V, ^ 

replied, "Sir, I would love to 
possess such a chain, but I have 
nothing to offer in return for 
such a priceless work." 

"Son, it's yours; here, I give 
it to you because you have been 
searching for its strength all 
your life. Take care of it and 
see that nothing is done to it 
that might weaken it." 

My mind raced with excite- 
ment. "Oh, yes sir, it will hold 
a place of honor in my house, 
and it will be preserved." 

I wanted to know more about 
the chain which this man had 
created. "Would you tell me 
which link is most important; 
they must stand for 

He lifted it from its place on 
the counter, and as He did, the 
light struck it in such a way that 
I could see words that I had not 
noticed before etched on each 

"The reason I asked," I con- 
tinued, "was because I noticed 
the different link sizes." 

"They are all important," He 
said, "the size and shape do not 
effect the chains strength for 
they are each as important as 
the others along with the words 
which are engraved on them. 
The words are the most impor- 
tant part of this chain. But to 
answer your question, if one 
link were to be weakened the 
chain would break, and a chain 
is only as strong as its weakest 
link. That is why you must not 
let one of these 1 links become 
weakened by rust. Don't store 
this chain on a shelf or in a 
glass case. Use it, for its metal 
becomes stronger with use." 
As he lowered the chain to the 
counter I couldn't help but ask 
another question. 
"Sir, I noticed your hands as

You Can Call Me JT 

Moni Gennick 
Who is JT7 Jook Ting Shim is 
the president of this year's stu- 
dent association. Last year he 
came into the office with a slim 
margin over his opposing can- 
didate, Denise Read. There are 
some who speculate that his 
desire for the office came out of 
a quest for power rather than 
good intent. 
In defense of himself JT stated 
that he feels active elections are 
important. "How could I en- 
courage others to run on their 
qualifications while refusing to 
run on my own?" he asked. 
"Also, if you want to have a 
say in how things should be 
done you need to be involved," 

JT does seem to be an ad- 
vocate of the "get involved" 
action he recommends. During 
his years at Southern he has 
served two one-year terms as a 
senator and edited four editions 
of SC's telephone directory, 
The Numerique. 

Last year he served as vice- 
president of SA, an office 
which he ran for in three 
straight elections. "If 
something is worth it," JT 
commented, "don't be afraid 
to alter strategies-just never 
give up." 

JT attributes his win in the 
spring of '83 to a well- 
structured campaign that "pull- 
ed out all the stops." From of- 
fice of vice-president, JT went 
on to be president, in a very 
similar campaign. 

Aside from these major of- 
fices, JT has also involved 
himself in various campus 
I orsanizations such as the 
Amateur Radio Club and the 
student cnapler of IABC. 

As president of the student 
association, JT acknowledges 
his load of responsibility yet 
feels that his qualifications can 


Although he 

somewhat skirted the subject of 
any major plans the SA intend- 
ed to implement this school 
year, he stressed the importance 
of "good communication with 
follow through," dealing with 
anything from refunds to sim- 
ple complaints. He would also 
like to increase school spirit. 

The phone system is another 
area JT would like to influence, 
though a remark that "buying 
the phone company seems to be 
the only course to any real ac- 
tion" seems to indicate that 
working with the phone com- 
pany tends to be a slow process. 

A plan dealing with SA in- 
volvement in the weekly 
fellowship dinners at the Col- 
legcdale church is also a plan 
that the SA has taken on under 
JT's leadership. 

JT also has found his leader- 
ship roles to be a learning ex- 
perience encompassing such 
things as learning how to con- 
duct meetings to dealing and 
communicating with people on 
a variety of different levels. "I 
like my position because I'm 
able to meet a lot of people 
also," JTsaid. "Onecanlearn 
something from everybody that 
is unique, and in doing so, it 
makes life so much more plea- 
sant for all." 

Where does JT expect his stu- 
dent political career to take him 
in the future? "I'd like to keep 
the political option open," JT 
said, "though I'm really in- 
terested in management and 

JT will graduate this spring 
with a double major of com- 
puter science with a business 
emphasis and communica-

Gano Achieves Highest 

MCAT at Southern College 

Ron Aguilera 

The MCAT is very familiar to 
those aspiring a medical profes- 
sion. The Medical College Ad- 
missions Test score is used as 
acceptance criteria for those 
entering medical school. With 
this in mind medical students 
prepare themselves to tackle the 
MCAT. This is where David 
Gano comes in. David tackled 
the MCAT, and he tackled it 
with style. David Gano now 
holds the all-time high score on 
the MCAT here at Southern 
College with a score of 75. This 
beat the record previously held 
at 72 by Penny Duerksen. With 
this score David has assured 
himself acceptance to any 
medical school. To give an idea 
of how well David did, one 

should know that Harvard 
University's MCAT acceptance 
score is 65. 

David Gano was born in 
Gainsville, Florida on 
November 7, 1963. He attend-

was never obsessed by grades. 
Aside from his academics, 
David was always involved in 
extra-curricular activities. He 
has been in Die Miester Singers

My classes are very interesting. 
I teach levels 1, 2, and 3 and Bi- 
ble classes. Also, I do private 
tutoring. My students are eager 
to learn English. They always 
ask me questions about myself 
and America. My students like 
to bring little gifts to me. They 
say that they like me as a 
teacher. They laugh with me 
when I try to pronounce their 
names. We have a Friday night 
vespers at our house and now 
we have about 12 people com- 
ing. We are encouraging the 
students to come. I have really 
enjoyed it here so far. I know

people. They are very friendly 
to me. I thank God for making 
it possible for me to be here I 
pray that I will be able to do all 
I can as a Christian friend and

A Tomboy's Advantage 

Campus Digest News Service 
Women who were tomboys 
when they were younger are 
more likely to become indepen-

study of 125 middle-class

Remaining assertive seems to

According to the study, 
women who wanted to be doc-

Sports Corner Commentary 

J. Randolph Thuesdee 

This was certainly unexpected. 
At least someone could have 
forewarned me. Even if so- 
meone had, though; I probably 
wouldn't have believed a word. 
All of a sudden, my whole 
world has changed. Can it be 
that, after all these years, the 
Chicago Cubs are finally going 
to win the National League's 
Eastern Division? What hap- 
pened to tradition? What hap- 
pened to the "May Fade?", the 
"June Swoon?", the "July 
Slide?", the "August Bust?", 
the "September Fall?". We're 
runnin* out of time here. If the 
Cubs are going to die down, 
would someone please tell me? 
Accent Editor Dennis Negron 
would be glad to do that honor. 
He's a Mets fan. 

But surely, I must be dream- 
ing. Are these the same guys 
who for 38 years sang "Wait till 
next year" every year and even 
had a copyright? They can't be. 
The guys I'm used to seeing are 
those who bobble the ball on 
the potential last out of the 
game only to let the tying run 
score. The guys I'm used to are 
the ones who hit pop-ups with 
the bases loaded and no one out 
three consecutive times. The 
guys I'm used to are the ones 
who can't catch pop-ups hit by 
their opponents. 

Who are these 1984 im- 
postors? They just can't be 
Cubs! The guys I'm used to are 
the ones who are stepping 
stones for other teams on their 
way to the division crown, the 
guys who score 22 runs and still 
lose because the other guys 
scored 23, the guys who star on 
the "bloopers" segment of 
"This Week in Baseball," the 
guys whose manager cusses out 
the fans for coming out to the 
games just to boo the Cubs for 
they had just blown yet another 
one (You should have heard 
that tape. I never knew such 
words were in the English 
language.). Those guys, I 
remember them well. 

But these guys today are 



"America's Team's" partly 
because of Super Station 
WGN-TV Chicago and partly 
because of all the migrated 

players on the team-which is 
why Dallas Green, formerly of 
the Philadelphia organization, 
is looking like a genious. This 
year is a case in point. 

In January, Green looked at 
his stack of cards for the up- 
coming season. He was unim- 
pressed, to say the least. His top 
starting pitcher of 1983 was 
Chuck Rainey. Green went out 
and acquired Scott Sanderson 
from the Montreal Expos and 
traded away Carmello Martinez 
to San Diego. Immediately, 
people began to remind Green 
of the infamous Lou Brock 
trade of years gone by. The guy 
they got was out of baseball in 
less than a year and we all knew 
what happened to that poor 
castoff, Mr. Brock. 

Green looked at his outfield 
and was confused. He had a 
first-baseman playing center 
field in Leon Durham and a 
left-handed right fielder who 
couldn't hit left-handed pit- 
ching in Mel Hall. He also had 
a left fielder who was inconsis- 
tent in Jay Johnstone. So what 
did he do? He traded reliever 
Bill Campbell to Philly for 
Gary Matthews and Bob Der- 
nier, a real center-fielder. This 
caused friction, obviously. 
Durham was moved to first- 
base to push popular veteran 
Bill Buckner to the oak. Mat- 
thews was inserted in left to 
push Johnstone to Buckner's 
side, and Hall was later traded 
to Cleveland-otherwise known 
as major league baseball's 
purgatory-for Rick Sutcliffe, 
George Frazier, and Ron 
Hassey. Buckner had been trad- 
ed to Boston for Dennis 
Eckersley by this time. He ac- 
quired Richie Hebner as a free- 
agent and hired Jim Frey {1980 
Kansas City Royals) to be his 
manager. He swore that he 
would make Cub fans happy by 
producing a winning ballclub. 
Cub fans had been condition- 
ed to losing so long that the on- 
ly winner they ever had were the 
1969 team managed by Leo 
Durocher that held the team in 
first place for the majority of 
the season until the Miracle 
Mets washed all those dreams 
away. Cub fans were skeptical 


about Green's daring dealing. 
"What is he doing?", they'd 
say. He's trying to bring a win- 
ner. "They'll never be as good 
as the '69 club." 1969 is gone. 

"But what happened to Don 
Kessinger, Glen Beckert, Ran- 
dy Hundley, Jim Hickman, Bil- 
ly Williams, and Ferggie 
Jenkins?" Who? 

"You know, Milt Pappas, 
Ken Holtzman, Vic Harris, 
Dave Kingman, Steve 
Onteveros, and Larry Gura?" 

You must be kidding. 

"O.K., O.K., Eamie Banks." 

Never heard of him. . .Wait a 
minute, is he kin to Earnie 

But anyway all those old Cubs 
were losers since 1945. That's 
the last time the Cubs were in 
the World Series. That fact is 
older than Dean Qualley. 
Rumor had it that if the Cubs 
were ever to get close again, 
America would have to win 
another war. They thought they 
had it in 1969, but just like 
Vietnam they were beaten by 
those communists, the New 
York Mets. This year the com- 
mies were at it again, trying to 
spoil the Cub's fun. The Mets 
themselves had a very good 
year led by Keith Hernandez 
and Dwight Gooden, the rookie 
sensation on the mound. But in 
head-to-head competition, the 
Cubs won nine of the last 13 
games. Other than head-to- 
head competition, the Mets and 
the Cubs played pretty even this 
year. Usually that means fifth 
and sixth place in the NX. 
East. But this year they are 1-2 
and it is definitely not a fluke. 
So what, I picked them to finish 
fifth and sixth in last March's 
issue? For that matter, who 
cares that I went 0-4 in my 
preseason predictions? 

Baltimore, the Chicago White 
Sox, the Montreal Expos, and 
the Braves all let me down. I 
told you it wasn't gospel, but 
my boss is making me feel like 
Bulwinkle when he said, "Hey 
Rocky, watch me try to pull a 
rabbit out of my hat!" 

Rocky: "Again?" 

Bulwinkle: "Nothin's up ma 
sleeeeeve. . . Presto!!!"

Chain. . . 

you were talking about the 
chain, and I observed wounds. 
What happened?" I asked. 

Tears came to his eyes as He 
said, "Many years ago my 
father sent me on a search for 
his lost children, but not 
everyone welcomed my arrival. 
This saddened me deeply, for 
my father loves his children. He 
would do anything for them. 
That was why He sent me, to 
show them the way home. 

He paused a moment then 
continued. "My search brought 
great sadness to my heart, for 
many would not accept my 
father's invitation and sought 
to end my life. In many hearts 
the chains of my father's love 
had grown brittle, and many 
links were broken, their words 
forgotten. Many chains were so 
rusted, in fact, that some fail- 
ed to recognize me as my 
father's son and just considered 
mean irritation to their lives." 

Then he brightened up, and a 
smile spread across his face. 
"However," he continued, 
"some did recognize me; their 
chains had been studied and re- 
mained strong. They accepted 
my father's gift from having 
known me. That is the real 
value of this chain, when so- 
meone sees my work and sees 
my father's love for them in 

"The enemies of my father 
sought i 

blasphemy. They said 1 wasn't 
who I claimed to be. Yet how 
were they to know who I was; 
their chains were all broken and 
they had nothing to go on to 
disprove my claim. So, in anger 
they convicted me, and 1 was 
nailed to a cross for all to see." 
"But you know," he con- 
tinued, "death has no hold on 

As he stepped from behind the 
counter I could see the wounds 
in his feet, for he wore sandals. 

"His love was that great?" 1 

"Yes son, he loves you just as 
I do, for we are fishers of men. 
There is no other way home ex- 
cept by the path which passes 
beneath the cross. The links in 
this chain are so that you might 
know my father as I do and 
love him as he loves you." 

"Sir, I don't believe I asked 
your name; what is it?" I 

"My name is Jesus." 

As He spoke 1 saw a twinkle 
in his eyes. 

"I love you Jesus," I respond- 
ed. "What you have given to 
me today I will treasure always. 
I will use what you have given 
me and share it with others." 

He nodded as He said, "Yes, 
that's the best way to keep it. 
By sharing, you will become 
strong. The chain will hold you 
|k firmly to me, for I will not let 
W you go. Study this chain." 

As I was leaving his shop with 
my chain I glanced back over 
my shoulder and saw him place 
another chain, just like mine,

Organ Is On Its Way 

'elanie Boyd 

years Southern Col- 
and the Collegedale corn- 
unity have been eagerly 
raiting the arrival of the 
rombaugh organ. In 1978 the 
itracts were drawn up and 
ned for purchasing the 
,000 organ, and now it is 
; way to Southern College, 
coming to us from Eugene, 
egon, disassembled on a 
foot trailer truck, 
the weeks to follow its ar- 
jval, John Brombaugh, the 
Jesigner and builder of the 
organ, is sending his craftsmen 
lo spend about five 'to eight 
eeks putting it all together in 
sanctuary of our campus 
iuirch. Afterwards, each Sab- 
can expect to hear the 
ipes that have been voiced the 
week by John Brom- 
augh. It will take him six to 
ine months to individually 
voice all the pipes and 
perfect, overall sound 
lat will acoustically accom- 
lodate the needs of our 

Opus 26, the name of the 
organ, is probably the largest 
I'Tracker" pipe organ in North 
ftmerica. It contains approx- 
imately 5,000 pipes, each in- 
dividually hand-crafted and 
molded. Every detail of the 

organ is made by hand-the 
pipes, the keyboard, the thin 
strips of wood-called 
"Trackers"-which connect key 
to pipe valve, and even the 
beautiful wooden oak case that 
holds all the pipes and 
mechanics together. 

Many have wondered why 
we should spend so much 
money on an organ when we 
can purchase another for so 
much less. The main reason is 
that it is so much more sensible 
to buy an organ that will last 
for hundreds of years and still 
keep up the quality sound. 
Opus 26 won't die out in twen- 
ty years like so many electronic 
organs will because it has the 
ability to last up to 300 years. 
Plus the new organ will pose as 
an investment as the years go 
by; the value will increase. 

Also, the organ is boosting 
public relations for S.C., in that 
organists from all over the U.S. 
and Europe will be coming to 
play and hear this fantastic in- 
strument. Mrs. Judy Glass, 
Associate Professor of Music at 
S.C., says that everyone will be 
able to hear a distinct difference 
in the Brombaugh organ as 
compared to the sound of the 
electronic organ currently being 
used. "It really makes music!" 
she says. 

Opus 26 in January. 

The Joker is Not a Joke 

The Joker, student directory 
of Southern College, which is 
published by the Student 
Association, has still not been 
distributed. Each year during 
the elections for Student

for Joker editor almost always 
pledge to get the directory out 
in record time. This year, 
however, people are wondering 
when they will finally receive it.

Continued on page 7 

From the information that 
the Southern Accent has 
gathered it appears that Joker 
editor Reg Rice is innocent of 
causing the delay. When plan- 
ning to publish the Joker, 
editor Rice wanted to produce 
better quality pictures of the 
students on the Orlando Cam- 
pus than had been published in 
previous years. He contracted 
with Olan Mills to take the pic- 
tures, and they promised him 
they could get the pictures to 
him in two to three weeks. This 
would have meant that the pic- 
tures would have been delivered 
the last week in August or. the 
first week in September. We are 
now in the third week of 
September, and on the 22nd the 
pictures arrived. 
The College Press is allowing 
themselves two weeks to print 
the Joker once they have re- 
ceived all the materials. Reg 
Rice claims that the Joker staff 
has been ready for two weeks; 
therefore, they are on schedule. 
Thus, the holdup from Olan 
Mills is the only reason that the 
publication of the directory has 
not been completed. From this 
we can logically deduce that we 
can look for the Joker to be 
distributed sometime within the 
next two to four weeks. 

What's in store for the 
students once they do receive 
the Jokerl There have been 
several changes made in this 
year's directory. A third line 
has been added to the informa- 
tion listed under each picture 
stating the social status of each 
individual. Hopefully this will 
save a person from the embar- 

rassment of asking out a mar- 
ried student to pizza and film in 
the cafeteria. Another added 
feature is an even more exten- 
sive information list including 
local churches, recreation in 
Chattanooga and the surroun- 
ding area, campsites, parks, 
and other informative data. A 
final revision is found in the 
quality of the Joker. Editor 
Rice claims that it has really 
been upgraded. 

Rice says that he apologizes 
for the delay, but the reasons 
for the delay were beyond his 
control. He is positive, 
however, that everyone will be 
satisfied with the new Joker 
when they finally get it. "Just 
be patient," he says.

How High a Standard? 

This past w«k I »as talking to a good friend of mine about 
the different standards of our church. Specifically, we were 
relating to each other how there are variant opinions about 
riding on the Sabbath. The person said that she used to bike nde 
on the Sabbath all the time and that she saw nothing wrong with 
the practice. I related that I had a hard time seeuig myself doing 
such a thing. Then we came up with a probable reason for our 
differing views. My friend had been raised in a rural area. A bike 
ride in this setting where one is generally by himself and close to 
nature could easily bring an individual closer to God. In contrast 
I grew up in a city where a bike ride generally is a battle with 
can stop lights, and pedestrians. Although the possibility is there, 
most people do not become close to God in this situation. The 
conclusion we came to was that our backgrounds dictated how 
high of a standard we had in this area. 

However, this conclusion does not mean that it is right for a 
person to okay all that he does on the rationale that his 
background •determines his higher or lower standard of morality 
or religion. In areas that our church has not taken a stand or that 
the Bible does not have a principle by which we can judge an ac- 
tion as acceptable then, I come to reason that there are levels of 
standards that are acceptable. Certainly one cannot condemn my 
friend nor me for having variant opinions on bike riding. I am 
able to see that people who do ride their bikes on the Sabbath 
can keep the Sabbath just as well as those who take hikes. But 
I am not ready to follow this course of action. And with the mind- 
set that I have now, I probably would be wrong in doing it. 

Seventh-day Adventists are known for their high standards. 
Some people admire us for them; others think about us as 
ridiculous for having them. Yet even in our church there are and 
always will be different levels of standards in areas that our church 
has not taken a stand. My responsibility, then, in this situation, 
is to respect my fellow man, If, in fact, he has taken the Bible's 
dictation that we do whatever is pure and true into account, then 
he can be judged only by God. I have no right to force him to 
change nor to judge him as wrong. An action of this sort puts 
me in the wrong.

Letters. . . 

Dear Editor 

I applaud you for taking an 
interest in the 1984 presidential 
elections by publishing the 
essay on "Why is Reagan so 
Popular?" in your September 
13 issue. However, I think the 
view that Reagan isn't so 
popular deserves equal time. 

Some of us do not view 
Reagan as the "Great Com- 
municator" or a "bully pulpit" 
president, but as a master actor 
who does well at reading ghost- 
written speeches, and as a presi- 
dent who is little more than a 
bullied puppet. 

As a future teacher, I find 
Reagan's policies toward 
education lacking. Not only has 
he had the funds for certain 
programs (bi-lingual classes, 
for example) cut off, but he has 
not proposed any new pro- 
grams for supporting public 
schools. As pointed out in a re- 
cent television documentary, 
leaving schools to the county 
and city systems could lead to 
"two Americas" --one black 
and one white, one rich and one 

Reagan's ultra-conservative 
political platform is one I find 
difficult to support. Abortion 
and prayer in public schools are 
moral, personal issues that 
should not be dictated by any 
political government. 

Reagan claims to have 
benefitted the American public 
by not raising taxes. In reality, 
Reagan's tax cut helped people 
making $80,000 a year pay 
$7,000 less in taxes while those 
earning $10,000 yearly ended 
up paying $270 more in taxes. 
The people paying more were 
the ones who couldn't afford it 
and who also will be effected by 
the Reagan adminstration's 
cuts to social programs. 

Reagan's campaign is being 
run on his personality and wit 
(jokes which I don't find 

humorous) and not on his 
ideas. He hasn't spent much 
time talking about the issues 
that face America because he's 
too busy trying to sing America 
to sleep-singing songs about 
what's right with America. 

Reagan may well be a 
"known celebrity," but so are 
Donald Duck and Michael 
Jackson, and I certainly 
wouldn't want either of them as 
president. I don't want a 
celebrity decorating the oval of- 
fice with his wife and his jelly 
beans. I want a man who is in- 
terested in the issues and who 
doesn't need a tele-prompter to 
respond to them. There's more 
to the presidency than just a 
nice smile.

Dear Editor, 

With November 6 only a lit- 
tle more than a month away, it 
is important for us to weigh the 
pros and cons of the political 
party elements. Most people 
from this school, if they are 
even reading the paper, pro- 
bably looked at another article 
when they read the words 
political party. It seems that 
most Adventist youth are not 
interested in politics, which is 
another way of saying you 
don't care about the past, pre- 
sent, or future and that you 
would rather float aimlessly 
through life letting others direct 
you in your wanderings. 

I'm sure that you have heard 
of the evils of siding with a 
political party. Well, there are 
some evils that might help you 
change your mind. As it was 
stated in the Chattanooga News 
Free Press on Sept. 19, 1984, in 
"State Chief Says Demos Need 
Help" the Democratic party 
has adopted a proposal which 

would "require 8t 
Democratic structures to m v 
to integrate gays and l esbia ' 
into the party network " 

This is a fact that so L 
Adventist are aware of, b ut J 
is important to know! Ho 
could anyone, unless gay 0r w 
bian, especially Advent 
Christians, vote for a party [hat 
is integrating these people i nto 
their system. Think about it 
register, and vote-Republican]

J. Bruce Ashton 

"In the beginning was the 
Word." In all my ponderings 
bbout beginnings or about 
Bod, I would never have 
thought of such a profound 
|tatement as John makes. To- 
Hay's cosmotologists are work- 
ing toward the idea that "in the 
beginning there was energy"-- 
[he strong force, the weak 
force, the electro-magnetic 
force, and the gravitational 
force, all blended into one, all 
ploding into the particles 
ich became matter. But what 
;ered the explosion? Where 
id that concentration of ex- 
losive energy come from? 
The Christian who accepts 
at "In me beginning God ..." 
who reads in his New 
'estament that God is love, 
ight prefer to think, "In the 
iginning was Love," and that 
is true. Yet love, in order to 
End fulfillment, needs someone 
E)r whom love can be felt, 
Rmeone to whom love can be 

A Word for You 

Actually, of course, John 
had to be right. God, with 
whom the Word was, is a state- 
ment of relationship, rather 
than a name. We are still un- 
sure of God's real name. 
Elohim, El Shaddai, even 
Jahweh, and all the other awe- 
inspiring terms by which the 
Hebrew referred to his God are 
statements about some aspect 
of His nature or His dealings, 
rather than names as such. He 
is, of course, willing for us to 
call upon Him by any such term 
as expresses our awareness of 
His comprehensive greatness, 
but His preferred form of ad- 
dress is "Father." This, too, is 
a statement of relationship. 

How is it with your human 
relationships? Do they not all 
begin with a word? The 
simplest greeting, "Hi," is the 
opening (or re-opening) of an 
acquaintance. Just as He must 
have awakened Adam with a 
friendly "Hello," so He con- 
stantly reaches into our lives 

with blessings-greetings which 
invite us to re-establish contact 
with Him. Our own greetings 
are full of good will. We do not 
say to even our enemies, as we 
meet them on the sidewalk, 
"May your grandmother die 
before noon!" No matter how 
habitual the words, our "Good 
morning'"s are still wishes that 
all may be well with those 
whom we salute. How much 
more is there good will toward 
men in the greetings of our 

The next word is usually the 
word of introduction. "Hello, 
my name is ' ' gives the listener 
a word by which I may be 
thought of. "J. Bruce Ashton" 
summarizes who I am, and 
readily brings back to your 
mind whatever you may know 
of me. Most of us tend to be 
very uneasy in the presence of 
someone whose name we do 
not know (or which we have 
forgotten!). It is also true that 
most of us will respond to any 

of several names. To my kids, 
I am either "Papa" or "Dad"; 
to my wife, "Bruce" (or any of 
several sweet endearments); to 
my grade-school playmates, I 
used to be "Trashcan" (a 
perversion of the last name, in 
case you missed it); while my 
father often called me 
"Podunkus." I have even 
answered (many times) to my 
brother's name, since certain 
people who knew the family 
could never remember which 
one of us I was. 

Once the ice is broken, many 
words usually follow. They 
may convey interest in the other 
person (usually these words are 
assembled into questions), or 
they may reveal information 
about ourselves. They may be 
words of instruction, of com- 
mendation, of caution, of 
reproof, of comfort. All of this 
He was, and still is-this Word 
who was with God, and who 
was God. 

How comforting to realize 

that communication is so high 
on God's list of priorities! Even 
with all the super-novas and the 
black holes, even as He is 
guiding the wandering Arcturus 
through the universe, He loves 
to speak with me. Furthermore, 
being such an outstanding 
Word as He is, He knows the 
necessity of being listened to— 
and therefore of listening 
Himself. No doubt His joy in- 
creases as some gracious 
greeting of His calls forth a 
responding word of praise from 

Indeed, how should we reply 
to such a Word? We, too, are 
words-words which symbolize 
the fallenness of our race, yet 
which also convey to Him the 
beauty (His beauty) reflected 
and restored in one He loves. 
Your life is the medium, the 
word, through which another 
may hear the echo of His 
greeting, and may find the 
courage and humility to reply, 
"My Lord and my God!" 

Writers' Club Begins The Legacy Switching to Sciences 

Join King 

I Have you ever wondered 

Sow a few words written by 

lomebody you don't even know 

Ian cause empathy with the 

writer, emotions, and moods? 

fey what process do cold words 

lump out of a page and leave 

ffou with a warm feeling? The 

process is probably complex 

But the writers in a small book 

Balled The Legacy make it seem 

jasy. The Legacy is a compila- 

[on of poems, short stories, 

orks, and photographs 

:en from the best writings of 

luthern College's students. 

The pupose of The Legacy is 

to encourage writing across all 
diciplines from English majors 
to P.E. or Physical Education 
majors and give students a 
chance to have their writings 
widely read. The booklet is put 
in every SDA college and 
academy library. It also can be 
bought for $1 .50 at the Campus 
Shop, so fellow students can 
appreciate the creative art and 
writing talents of those who 
had the honor of being includ- 
ed. Some of those in the book 
last year were Sue Ellen Couch, 
Gart Curtis, Valerie Dick

In comparing students during 
the 1976-77 and 1981-82 years, 
college officials report a shift 
from humanities to science 

Two new surveys of depart- 
ment chairmen, deans and 
other academic officials have 
been released by the American 
Council on Education recently, 
From those surveys, nearly 
two-thirds of those humanities 
officials questioned said the 
best students were changing to

counterparts in the sciences 
agreed with the trend. 

Employment opportunities- 
or the lack of them-seem to be 
to blame for the switch in 
studies. Slightly over half of 
those questioned blamed the

humanities majors on a poor

Official Results Congress Passes Gore's

For too many years, women 
have been treated as second 
class political citizens in this 
country, being denied the vote 
until 1920 and kept out of the 
halls of government until the 
present. I find that with greater stated at the Republican

there are only 22 female con-

Southwestern Adventist College Welcomes New ftesident J^ WGV FrOYYl CdftlDUS 

Southwestern Adventist Col- 
lege held its breath last Spring 
following the decision of Dr. 
Donald McAdams to terminate 
his nine year term as president 
of the institution. Under his 
leadership, the college had ex- 
perienced much growth and 
maturity. It was the concern of 
many that a new president 
would be found who could con- 
tinue to direct SAC wisely and 
positively into the future. 

On April 29, Dr. Marvin 
Anderson was appointed the 
21st president of the college. He 
i the unanimous choice of 
the ad hoc search committee, 
and he was unanimously elected 
by the college board on the First 
ballot as well. At the time, he 
s serving as vice president for 
financial affairs at the college. 
Dr. Anderson, 43, has many 
years of experience at SAC. He 
a business department pro- 
fessor for five years, four of 
■ which he was chairman of the 
department. He has served as 
president of Southwestern 
Diversified Industries, the col- 
lege's wholly owned business 
conglomerate, for eight and a 
half years. During this time, 
SDI's revenues have increased 
from under a million dollars a 
year to 17 million dollars year- 
ly. Anderson also served as col- 
; president since 1976. 
Since that time, the net worth 
of the college has tripled. 

Prior to his employment at 
SAC, Anderson held many 

other positions in the educa- 
tional and business worlds. He 

taught at Oak wood College, 
Huntsville, Alabama; Loui- 
siana Tech University, Rustin; 
the University of Alabama, 
Huntsville; Calhoun State Col- 
lege, Decatur, Alabama; and 
Drake Tech, Huntsville. He has 
also taught courses at Tarrant 
County Junior College. Before 
beginning his teaching career, 
he worked as a cost accountant 
for the Univac Corporation and 
a government purchasing agent 
for the Redstone Arsenal in 

Because of his expertise in 
the field of management, 
Anderson is frequently called 
on as a management consul- 
tant, and he has spoken exten- 
sively throughout the 
Southwest on management 
techniques. He is a member of 
the Academy of Management 
and the Western Economics 
Association of College and 
University Buiness Officers. 
He holds the doctor of business 
degree from Western Colorado 
University, Grand Junction. 

Reacting to his appointment, 
Anderson said, 'When the 
board called me in and told me 
their decision, terror set in. I've 
been part of this college ad- 
ministration for the past nine 
years, and I'm proud of what 
we've done. With the Lord's 
blessing, this college will pro- 
vide even- more young people 
with great education for lives of 

Dr. Anderson's duties as 
president will place him main- 
ly in the role of overseer of the 
college and in the task of public 
relations. Much of his work will 
be focused outside of the 
college-dealing with alumni 
and potential contributors to 
the college. In addition, he will 
still head up the 400-employee 
SDI corporation. 

Personal concern for the 
students of the college has 
shone through the president's 
recent addresses to the student 
body. His sensitive and caring 
treatment of recent crises 
among the student body have 
been greatly appreciated. When 
asked what kind of relationship 
he wanted with the students on 
campus, he made it plain that 
he wanted it to be a very open 
one. He wants to keep open 
lines of communication with 
the students, and he maintains 
an open door policy. He says, 
'There will be no secrets about 
the operation of the college.' 
At the end of tenure as presi- 
dent, Anderson says, 'I would 
like to think that I was fair, 
open, and that I helped to put 
together a small, efficient, high 
quality college,' May God bless 
him as he strives to provide this 
kind of leadership.

President Speaks to U.N. a 

Chattanooga Times 

The speech Ronald Reagan delivered to the United Nations on 
Monday was conciliatory in tone, inviting the Russians to pro- 
vide for regular meetings on the ministerial and cabinet levels to 
discuss all the issues at stake between the two nations. The Demor- 
crats accused Reagan of softening up as the election approaches, 
but Secretary of State Schulz said he thought that party politics 
was not a motive, just an increasing desire on the part of the 
Reagan Administration for better super-power relations. 

Reagan and Mondale Make Points 

Chattanooga Times 

President Reagan met the Soviet Foriegn Minister, Andrei 
Gromyko on Sunday, his first meeting with a ranking Soviet of- 
ficial since coming into office. There was relatively little personal 
conversation between the two world leaders, but Reagan assured 
Gromyko that he wanted "nothing less than a realistic, construc- 
tive, long-term relationship with the Soviet Union." Reagans com- 
ments relfected the new thaw in U.S. policy. 

Mondale will also meet Gromyko while he is in the U.S., hop- 
ing to demonstrate his willingness to talk with the Russians as 
opposed to Reagans reluctance. 

Prices Up 

News-Free Press 

Despite a substantial boost in consumer prices (0.5 percent), 
inflation is still running at a moderate 4.2 percent, not much above 
last years figure of 3.8 percent. The August figures maintain what 
White House spokesman Larry Speakes calls "the pattern of low 
inflation established over the last two years." Price forecasting 
experts prognosticate an increase of the consumer price index up 
to around 5.5 percent where it should level off. 

Explosion in Lebanon 

News-Free Press 

Based on a Lebanese military investigation, the death toll from 
the bombing of the American embassy in Beirut has been reduc- 
ed from twenty-three to twelve, two of whom were American. 
'Islamic Holy War', the group who claim responsibility for this 
bombing as well as the two previous blasts aimed at U.S. facilities 
in Lebanon is a coalition of Shiite Moslem zealots supposedly in- 
fluenced by the Iranians. The attack was accomplished despite 
anti-tank blocks across the road and gunfire from embassy guards. 
The state department is investigating security arrangements to 
determine if the precautions taken were sufficient.

^Sports Corner Commentary 

J. Randolph Thuesdee 

Break out the blankets and 
the hot chocolate; it's time for 
SC's All Night Softball Tour- 
nament! The traditional end to 
the slowpitch season begins this 
Saturday night at 7:45 on fields 
B and C on the opposite side of 
the College Plaza. 

This year there are 13 teams 
of which five have good 
chances to win it all. Kent 
Greve's team entered Wednes- 
day night's action with a 5-0 
record. Greve is figured to be 
this year's top seed. His tandem 
includes Jim Hakes, power hit- 
ting third baseman; Mike Krall; 
and Dale Tunnell. Tunnell, if 
i remember, captained the 
winning team in last year's All 
Night Tournament. 

Royce Earp's team has a 4- 1 
record. Earp is led by co- 
captain Mike Dickerhoff, Den- 

i Negron, and Rob Lonto. 

John Hinkle says that "Earp's 
team is probably the biggest 
threat." Dickerhoff thinks that 
they are the team to beat. 
"Earp's team, of course," 
Dickerhoff said when asked 
who'll win the tournament. 
What does Earp think? "Either 
lis or Greve. Kent certainly has 
i strong team." 

Other teams with a good 
chance to come out ontop are 
John Hinkle's team, Mike 
McClung's team, and Steve 
Jones'. Hinkle entered Wednes- 
day night's action with a 3-0 
record. Led by Kent Boyle, co- 
captain Greg Cain, Toby 
Fowler, and Jimmy Crone, 
Hinkle seems to have the best 
balance of any team in the East 

Division. Colt Peyton of Jeff 
Jewett's team feels that Hinkle 
has a good chance to do well. 
Ron Aguilera of Mike 
McClung's team said "Hinkle's 
team looks pretty good. They'll 
be a tough team to beat." 
Hinkle is a good leader and 
that's the number one ingre- 
dient needed for the all night 
affair. It certainly makes a dif- 
ference, especially about 3:23 

Mike McClung's team aren't 
pushovers themselves. After 
Tuesday's victory over Earp, 
McClung is now 4-1. Kent 
Greve feels that McClung "has 
the firepower but this one pitch 
thing will kill them." 

Coach Jaecks has installed a 
new rule for the tourney. There 
will be only one pitch per bat- 
ter and no walks. Either you 
swing or you die. Batters will 
have pitchers from their own 
team pitching to them. Greve 
feels that very rule will work 
against most teams with power 
hitters who look for one par- 
ticular pitch. 

However, David Butler, 
John Misckewisc, Jeff Stone, 
and co-captain Ron Aguilera all 
add punch to McClung's at- 
tack. "McClung is the dark 
horse team," Aguilera says. If 
any team is worth staying up all 
night for, these guys are the 
ones most would watch. 

Steve Jones' team features 
Greg Hoover, Al Travis, Stan 
Hobbs, Mark Bramblett, and 
Scott Begley. Jones entered 
Wednesday's games at 3-1. 
Tradition has it that an average 

team that does fairly decent 
during the season is usually a 
team that catches fire during 
the tournament. "I wouldn't be 
surprised if some of the average 
and bottom teams come up," 
says John Hinkle. Jones' team 
could fit that bill. 

A team that hasn't done that 
well but could catch fire is Bill 
Dubois' team. They sure look 
good on paper, but it just 
doesn't happen for them on the 
field. Dubois has a 2-3 record, 
but Rod Hartle feels that will 
change come Saturday night. 
"I think we have a good team, 
but right now we just haven't 
been putting it together. Still, I 
think it'll be one heck of a tour- 
nament." Along with Hartle, 
otherwise known as the great 
home run hitter of SC, Dubois 
boasts Jerry Russell, Rob 
Shanko, Rob Buckner, Steve 
Martin, and Scott Yankelevitz. 
Regardless of who comes out 
on top, this year's tournament 
will be an exciting one. Come 
early and get ready to root for 
your favorite team. Games are 
scheduled every 45 minutes. 
After the 7:45 game slot, any 
following games will be ac- 
cellerated. For instance, a game 
could end at 8: 1 5 and instead of 
waiting for the scheduled 8:30 
start for the next game, the 
game would begin at 8:16. 

Refreshments will be sold for 
a reasonable price to help 
benefit the gymnastics team. 

Don't forget the blankets, 
folks. Believe me, it does get 
cold around 3:23 a.m. 1 know 
from last year. BBRRRRR.

Southern Cynic 

Music to My Ears 

George Turner 

A couple of people have ask- 
ed me lately why I'm not in one 
of the choirs on campus. Well, 
I'll admit I do like to sing, and 
I do enjoy music. But I have a 
problem, see--I don't under- 
stand music. Someone once sat 
me down and made me listen to 
one of Beethovan's sym- 
phonies. ..the third one in E 
something-or-other. The whole 
thing is supposedly built around 
a triad of chords (is that 
anything like a pair of cords?) 
and tells this really intricate 
story of some sort of hero. 
Well, I hate to disappoint Mr. 
B., but after two or three of 
those triads the whole thing 
changed from being a hero's 
tale to being some pretty sharp 
music. The story may have been 
there, but they lost me 
somewhere around Waterloo... 

Of course, it's not just 
classical music. Have you heard 
some of the stuff they play on 
KZ-106? The names of the 
groups< alone are enough to 
drive you batso— little cute 
names like Steel Breezes, or A 
Flock of Seagulls. ..wonderful. 
And you're seldom 100 percent 
sure what they're singing about. 
Like the song a year or two ago 
by Spandau Ballet;"! know this 
much is true". How much is 
true? What are they talking 
about? Even when I can figure 
out what the groups are singing 
about, I still wonder why they 
are. . .singing about it, I thought

Now country music is dif-

music I can at least figure out 
what's going on. The way I 
understand it, all it takes to be 
a country music star is have a 
wife, girlfriend, and a bill. 
Take, for instance. Hank 
Williams Jr.'s song "Attitude

calls the cops on him, his wife

Another Name Change? 

This past Tuesday, October 
2, a hearing was held on the 
name of the college. The 
meeting was not well-attended 
although the opinions that were 
voiced certainly seemed to be 
that of the majority of the cam- 
pus. The hearing was not for 
the purpose of actually chang- 
ing the name, but to give 
teachers, students, and others 
an opportunity to let their feel- 
ings known. Elder Clay Farwell 
chaired the meeting. 

The seemingly general con- 
sensus was that it was the pro- 
cess that bothered most people 
', and not the current name; the 
majority of those present wish- 
ed that a decision be made 
quickly. However, the same 
majority also called for the cur- 
rent name, Southern College of 
Seventh-day Adventists, to be 

Reasons for the keeping of 
the current name lay mostly in 
the financial area. Vinita 
Sauter, Director of Public Rela- 
tions, noted that her depart- 
ment is currently producing 
many brochures and videos 
with the current name, and a 
change would cost a great deal. 
Olson Perry, Director of 
WSMC, related that it was on- 
ly recently that he had con- 
tacted the FCC with the infor- 
mation that our name had of- 
ficially been changed, and this 

had cost him $400. Another 
change would cost the same 
amount.Mary Elam, Director 
of Records, said that a change 
would also be an expensive 
decision with reference to buy- 
ing stationary and other 

Despite these opinions, facts 
were shown that a change to the 
name Southern Adventist Col- 
lege has been well received. A 
survey that was recently 
distributed among a random 
selection of graduates, current 
students and staff, and trustees 
shows that Southern Adventist 
College held the number one 
position, with our current name 
running second, and 
Southeastern Adventist College 
and Southern College (solely) 
running third and fourth 

However, the recommenda- 
tion of the committee is that if 
a name change does occur, that 
it be changed to commemorate 
an individual. Some of the 
possibilities are Daniells Col- 
lege, Desmond Doss Adventist 
College, and Spalding 
Memorial College. 

Although a future meeting 
has not been set by the commit- 
tee on the name change, Elder 
Clay Farwell believes that last 
Tuesday's hearing will help in 
the decision making. 

The school sign still reflects days of old. 

Jones Hall to be Demolished 

With the completion of 
Brock Hall nearing, many 
students are wondering what is 
eventually going to happen to 
Jones Hall. After the English 
department moves out, the 
building will cease to have any 
function on campus. For this 
reason, the Southern College 
Executive Board decided on Ju- 
ly 19, 1983, to raze Jones Hall. 
A decision on who will do the 
tearing down has not been 
made, however, although the 
college is getting various bids 
for the job. 

Maude Jones Hall was first 
opened in 1917-18,only the se- 
cond year of Southern Junior 

College, as the women's dor- 
mitory. The following account 
from the book SMC: A School 
of His Planning gives an idea of 
how it looked that first year. 
"The windows and door cas- 
ings were not hung; the walls 
were not plastered. Sheets were 
hung up to substitute for win- 
dows. There were no floors... 
no doors. heat. water... 
but the rooms were filled with 
youthful happy students." 

The woman Maude I. Jones 
came to Southern Missionary 
College in 1917 from 
Washington Missionary Col- 
lege. When she retired, she held 
the record for number of years 

Talge Hall Renovated 

Michael 7. Bat (is tone 

Upon returning to Southern 
College after the golden days of 
summer vacation, I, along with 
the other residents of Talge 
Hall, received a pleasant sur- 
prise. For behold, I saw new 
carpeting and a new fish tank, 
for the old upholstery and 
wallpaper had passed away, 
and the first lobby was no 

The "new look" in the Talge 
lobby is part of an extensive 
renovation program currently 
being executed in the men's 
residence hall. Beginning at the 
end of the last school year and 
continuing through the sum- 
me r, the improvements have in- 
cluded reupholstering the fur- 
niture; laying new carpet; ad- 
ding new plants, artwork, and 
lamps; hanging new wallpaper; 
and installing a new 55-gaUon 
marine aquarium. Perhaps it 
w as the "woman's touch" that 
^as needed-Drucilla Glass 
assisted the men in the 

The offices have been 
remodeled as well. Dean Reed 
Christman, Head Dean of 
Talge Hall, swapped offices 
with Mrs. Evans, the secretary, 
and Mr. Evan's old office has 
been converted into a computer 
center. The facility, equipped 
with seven computers and one 
printer, is much more conve- 
nient for Talge residents who, 
up until now, have had to go 
either to the business center in 
the ground floor of the Student 
Center or the computer lab in 
Daniel's Hall in order to com- 
plete a computer assignment. 
Dean Christman's new office 
has been refurnished with new 
paneling, couches, and 
bookshelves. Also, a new 
guestroom has been added by 
renovating the room next to 
former Dean Nafie's old office. 

In addition to the lobby and 
administrative areas, the 
hallways and some of the in- 
dividual rooms have been im- 
proved. New carpet has been 

placed in 40 rooms and in the 
halls of both A and B wings. 
Walls, halls, doors and more 
have been repainted, with much 
of the credit for the actual work 
due to Dean Qualley, who was 
actively involved in the painting 
of the building. 

Of course, everything has its 
price, and these improvements 
are certainly no exception. 
Rough estimates place the cost 
for the lobby, offices, and new 
carpet at around $16,750. The 
expense is justified by the fact 
that the changes were needed 
badly and long overdue. 

The renovations have not 
been completed, though. "We 
have done quite a bit, yet there 
is still so much to be done." 
Future improvements include 
new curtains— which have 
already been ordered— for most 
rooms, and several fire safety 
features, such as smoke detec- 
tors. Changes in the present 
water system will provide the 
west wing with a greater supply 

of hot water and will insure and 
against malfunctions of the 
water heater which many will 
recall, left us without hot water 
for a number of weeks last 

Currently, Deans Christman 
and Qualley are drafting a five- 
year renovation plan for Talge 
Hall. Included in the project is 
a restructuring of the northeast 
parking lot; a proposal to 
change the east exit by remov- 
ing the low brick wall and 
replacing it with circular steps; 
and building shelters; similar in 
architectural form to Talge 
Hall, to cover the trash 

"What we have dope, the im- 
provements we have and will 
continue to make, will revitalize 
the dorm and make it a nicer 
place to live," states Dean 
Christman. "We hope that the 
men will be able to take pride 
in their home and in doing so, 
help us to keep Talge looking 

spent in service in the faculty. 
She died on Christmas day, 
1961, at the age of 89. 

During the Ws Jones Hall 
served as a temporary dorm for 
the men while the current Talge 
and Thatcher Hall were con- 
structed. Eventually, it served 
the purpose of housing those 
men who were over 23 and did 
not wish to live in Talge and 
those who did not fit in Talge 
because of an overflow. In re- 
cent 'years, the building has 
been used solely to house the 
English departments. 

Jones Hall will probably be 
knocked down during this 
Christmas vacation so as to 
avoid the students who must at- 
tend classes in that area. A deci- 
sion of what eventually will 
take its place has not officially 
been made, although the Board 
is leaning towards constructing 
a parking lot for village 

Jones Hall will certainly be 
missed by those who have either 
lived or worked there. Yet the 
name of Maude Jones will 
never be forgotten on this

The Political Role 
of Adventists 

In contrast to years past, the Southern Accent has taken on 
a different look and especially a different flavor. Perhaps the 
flavor is what is most noticeable to those who take the time to 
read the paper. The latest comments are that the Southern Ac- 
cent has become political in substance. The apparent difference 
is no coincidence. This year being as election year, we believe that 
this community should be knowledgeable of the issues that are 
involved in a presidential campaign. Most everyone realizes the 
church-state issues because our church keeps everyone aware of 
them. However, many of the other issues should be considered 
important among ourselves, also. 

The title Adventist does not mean we are to be totally separated 
from politics; it does not mean that we are to be ignorant of issues 
and apathetic towards voting. (Our title is a statement of two of 
our prominent beliefs.) If one lives in a country, the individual 
should be concerned with who runs it and how they (the politi- 
cians) run it. These individuals include our social group. 

How then should an Adventist approach the elections? The 
answer is that we should leam the issues and the stances both Mon- 
dale and Reagan take on them, consider what effect, if any, their 
views will have on church-state relationships, and also consider 
which man will provide the leadership this country needs. Then 
we should vote on the better man. 

Some may remark that in this presidential election, the populace 
does not have a desireable choice: Reagan poses the danger of 
heavily mixing religion and politics, and Mondale is too liberal. 
Therefore, the proper stand is to not vote at all. However, a deci- 
sion not to vote is a decision for the winner. An attitude of apathy 
is a decision of approval for whoever wins this year's election. 
It is with these thoughts in mind that we say that an Adventist 
should vote in this year's elections and in future ones, also. The 
role of the Adventist is to help make those decisions that will help 
make this nation a better one.

Southern College, the Sev 


udent newspaper of 
Thyrsday with the 
Opinions expressed 

Dear Editor, 

After reading Royce Earp's 
letter to the editor last week, I 
feel I must take issue with 
several things this young man 
wrote about. It seems this man 
has included only bits and 
pieces of a newspaper article to 
prove an invalid point and then 
gone one step further by urging 
students to do what we have 
been counseled not to do by the 
Spirit of Prophecy. 

The article which he quoted 
in the Chattanooga News-Free 
Press which talked about the 
National Democratic Party re- 
quiring state parties to integrate 
gays and lesbians into the par- 
ty network also included 
women and the elderly. The ar- 
ticle also went on to say that the 
Tennessee State Democratic 
leadership had flatly refused to 
seek gays and lesbians and that 
the state party had absolutely 
no plans to engage in such ac- 
tivities at any time in the future. 
The Tennessee State 
Democratic Party Chairman 
also does not actively support 
Mondale. It is clear that not all 
Democrats are the hard core 
liberals characterized by Mon- 
dale and Ferraro. Many local 
Democrats refused to even 
show up at the airport to greet 
Mondale when he visited Chat- 
tanooga recently. 

Mr. Earp also advised 
students to ignore our counsel 
of not voting for political par- 
ties and urged people to vote 
Republican. It doesn't matter 
whether or not he has said 
Democrat or Republican, we 
should not vote for a person 
simply on the basis of their par- 
ty affiliation alone. 

As Seventh -day Adventists, 
we should be intellectual 
thinkers. We should be 
registered to vote and vote 

responsibly. The only way to 
vote responsibly is to take the 
time to find out something 
about the general beliefs and 
value system as well as in- 
dividual issues that the various 
candidates have. When we tell 
someone to simply vote straight 
Republican or straight 
Democratic, we are asking 
them not to think for 

Lets face it, not all 
Democrats or Republicans are 
created equal. I know because 
I am a conservative politician 
running on the Democratic 
ticket this year. I believe in 
strict separation of church and 
state; I am anti abortion but 
anti-Moral majority; and I 
can't see eye to eye with either 
Mondale or Reagan. Reagan's 
church-state issues are 
dangerous while Mondale is too 
ultra liberal. I am not sure that 
I can responsibly vote for either 
this year. Think about it Royce 
Earp, and vote responsibly.

Dear Editor, 

Last week a note was drop- 
ped in the Wright Hall sugges- 
tion box concerning handicap- 
ped access to Brock Hall, which 
is about to open. The concern 
was that there were not 
elevators between floors and 
without the elevator it would be 
difficult for disabled and han- 
dicapped individuals to gain ac- 
cess to the building. The whole 
idea of making buildings ac- 
cessible is that they be accessi- 
ble without having to go up 
steps. Regulations do not re- 
quire all buildings to have 


do© as 

elevators and do not require 
every building to be alike 
When the Music Building 
Humanities & Business Center 
(Wood & Brock Halls), as well 
as the proposed third phase (an 
auditorium) were planned i 
the 70s, it was suggested by the 
architect that they be planned 
as a total complex. With this 
total planning in mind, the ar- 
chitect suggested that one 
elevator would be sufficient to 
serve the total area. Elevators 
are extremely expensive to pur- 
chase and to keep maintained, 
and it was on the architects ad- 
vice and suggestion that the 
complex was planned with c 
elevator in mind. 

Access to Brock Hall is 
similar to access of other cam- 
pus buildings. As long i 
buildings are accessible from 
■some exterior point, lifts, 
elevators, and ramps do not 
have to be in place. Brock Hall 
is fortunate in that it is very 
close to a building with 
elevator and that Wood Music 
Building has the same elevation 
levels as Brock Hall. The col- 
lege administration realizes its 
responsibility and obligatic 
meeting the needs of the han- 
dicapped and will continue to 
be sensitive to them. 

I appreciate the Accent 
publishing this letter as I have 
no other way to commmunicate 
with the concerned parties 
about this.

A Letter To Heather 

lori Heinsman 

"Lori, my dear," wrote 
Heather, "you are a 
knowledgeable college woman. 
[ need some college advice." 

"I thought I wanted to go to 
the University of North 
Carolina. I read their catalog, 
and it sounded like a great 
place-until I read that they 
have an enrollment of 21,000! 
21,000... That's about one half 
of the whole city of Daytona! 
In a school that big there's go- 
ing to be huge classes, and I'd 
probably be treated like a 
number. Mr. Hose (my high 
school English teacher) told us 
that at big schools like those, 
you just put your student I.D. 
on your paper and don't use 
your name for at least the first 
two years! And with the large 
classes-how can you learn? 

When I was in independent 
study French IV, I didn't learn 
much. Sure I got A's, but it was 
all hurry up and memorize. I 
didn't learn anything. 

"There is the other side of 
the coin. 21,000 students- 
imagine the diversity. There are 
six publications, over 200 clubs 
and plenty of guest lectures and 
concerts, etc." 

"Then I think. ..gee Heather,

activities. So-what are your 
thoughts on the matter? How's 
Southern? It's smaller. How 
many people are in your 
classes? Are you learning a 

I replied, "Dear Heather, I 
thought you'd never ask. I shall 
take this opportunity to pour 

out my wisdom on the col- 
lege/university topic. 

"My theory is this: the 
amount of fun and learning one 
achieves in college is directly 
proportional to the amount of 
friends one has. (Spoken like a 
math major.) Since I believe 
you get to know more people in 
a smaller college, a com- 
paratively small college is the ■ 
wiser choice. 

"Don't guess that I mean 
'boyfriends* when I say 
'friends.' I'm referring to girls 
and teachers as well. You

so. I may not be crazy over

when the teacher cares. You

weekend provided a chance for 
students to meet new people 
and become aware of student 
mission work in and outside of 
the United States. 

The theme of the retreat was 
"Preparing and Sharing." The 
group did much sharing, and 
hopefully it helped to prepare 
the way for other students to 
choose some form of mission 
service. Friday night was the 
beginning of the sharing, when 
presentations were given by stu- 
dent missionaries and taskforce 
workers. Each one shared a 
part of his or her 

perience with the rest of group. 

Sabbath School and Church 
were held in a casual setting. 
More students shared their ex- 
periences as taskforce workers. 
Dr. John Wagner taught the 
Sabbath School lesson and 
brought out the fact that we 
have a mission to the whole 
world, including our own 
Southern College of Seventh- 
day Adventists. 

Our special speaker for the 
church service was Dr. Norman 
Gulley. He shared several per- 
sonal experiences that had been 
significant in his spiritual 
growth. In conclusion he ap- 
pealed to the group to get in- 
volved with mission work. 

Despite the rain on Sabbath 
afternoon, the group decided to 
go hiking. During the medita- 

tions program student mis- 
sionaries and taskforce workers 
who are out in the field now 
were remembered individually, 
followed with more sharing. 
Many parts of the world were 
represented among the group. 
Reports were given on Africa; 
Ponape; Belize; Mexico; 
Brownsville, Texas; and 
Highland View Academy. 

The people in the Student 
Missions Club want everyone in 
the school to feel that he or she 
can be a part of the mission 
program, even if it's not possi- 
ble to take off school and go 
somewhere else for a year. It is 
important for the students at 
Southern College to give sup- 
port to those who choose to do 
this kind of work. The Club 
hopes that even more people 
will attend the spring retreat.

probably won't find that in a 
class so huge the professor 
doesn't know you exist. To be 
honest, I didn't appreciate the 
teacher familiarity here until I 
read your letter. I guess I took 
all that for granted. Remember 
all the fun we had with our 
teachers in high school? Even if 
our high school wasn't the 
largest in the state, it didn't 
scrimp on academics any. 
Yeah, I'm all for smaller 
schools. I like my teacher to 
know my name. 

"Of course I suggest 
Southern. It's a good school- 
quality rather than quantity. 
My vote is against enormous

doesn't understand! Not mel

part public television series is 
being shown each Monday 
evening at 5:15 in the front of 
the cafeteria dining room. Each 
one-hour broadcast explores a 
different facet of our constitu- 
tional system. They deal not 
with the history of the Con-

issues that have constitutional 
implications. The programs' 
format involves a moderator 
who describes a hypothetical 
situation, and a panel of promi- 
nent government officials, 
lawyers, judges, and journalists 
who respond to the Socratic ex- 
amination of the moderator. 
The result is a program at once 
lively and informative. Par-

Gloria Steinem, Dan Rather, 
Daniel Mohnihan, Ellen Good-

Reagan Wins at Southern! 

Out of 387 people responding to the poll which the 
Southern Accent conducted, 312 felt that the 
Reagan/Bush team should lead the country for another 
four years. The largest percentage of the respondents 
(from dorm students, village students, and Faculty/ 
Staff responding) choosing Mondale and Ferraro was 
the members of the Faculty and Staff of which 19% 
chose the Democratic duo. The results of this survey 
are printed on the right. This was an informal poll and 
the percentages may not be totally accurate. The 
Southern Accent wishes to thank all respondents of the

a better informed vote on Nov. 
6th, the National Student Cam- 
paign for Voter Registration 
(NSCVR) today announced 
plans to organize simultaneous 
forums on the Presidential elec-

Oct. 21. 

The campus debates, collec- 
tively titled "Showdown '84", 
will be held immediately before 
or after the nationally televised 
debate between Walter Mon- 
dale and Ronald Reagan. The 
Presidential debate will also be 
aired on large screen televisions 
during the events. 

"Students are strongly con- 
cerned about the issues, but are 
often uninformed about the 
candidates' positions on those 
issues and the implications of 
those stands," observed Gary 
Kalman, a senior at Clark (MA) 
University and NSCVR 
chairperson. "These forums are 
designed to augment this cam-

Dr. McArthur Writes Book 

'Where the Candidates Stand" 


Ron Aguilera 

Southern College is very for- 
tunate to have three prominent 
scholars in its history depart- 
ment. One of them is Dr. Ben- 
jamin McArthur. Dr. McAr- 
thur has recently written his 
book, Actors and 
American Culture, 1880-1920. 

Dr. McArthur graduated 
with a B.A. in history from An- 
drews University and received 
his Master's degree and PHD in 
American history from the 
prestigious University of 
Chicago in 1979. Dr. McArthur 
then came here to Southern 
College and is now in his 6th 
year of teaching. Many 
students know Dr. McArthur 
from taking his American 
History or Government classes. 

In his book, Dr. McArthur 
deals with the golden age of 
' nerican theatre and 
America's desire for glitter and 
glory in entertaiment. Actors 
°nd American Culture, 
1880-1920 belongs to a series, 
"American Civilization," 
edited by Allen F. Davis. The 

book evolved through revision 
of McArthur's doctoral disser- 
tation, which he did at the 
University of Chicago. He pin- 
points 1907 as the year marking 
"the arrival of the 'celebrity'." 
Up through the late 1800's "ac- 
tors had the right to control ex- 
hibition of their photographs," 
writes McArthur, although this 
privilege was surrendered by 

Dr. McArthur also notes that 
actors provided society with 
vicarious freedom, and "in ef- 
fect, were given license for un- 
conventional behvaior." Actors 
took on a new role as "shills of 
the consumer culture," be com- 
ing very influential in society. 

Soon, Dr. McArthur will 
engulf himself in his next pro- 
ject. This book will be a 
biography on one of the past 
presidents of the University of 
Chicago, Robert Hutchins. We 
wish Dr. McArthur success in 
his upcoming ventures and con- 
gratulate him for his previous- 
ly mentioned work.

Peyton dropped their second game of 
the young season as Rodgers got a well- 
balanced scoring attack against them 
Tuesday night. Bob Murdoch, Ed Soler, 
Ron Barrow, Tony Fowler, and Myron 
Mbton each scored touchdowns for 
Rodgers. Peyton's team botched four 
PAT attempts and Rodgers played a 
fairly strong defensive game to record 
their first win. 

The gymnastics team has 
been assembled for this year, 
and it looks like an enthusiatic 
one with a lot of new blood. 
Myron Mbion, the student 
assistant, feels that the strength 
of the team's previous years has 
graduated so this is a year of 
rebuilding. He's optimistic 
about the team, though, and 
says that they are willing to 
work, have a terrific attitude, 
and have a lot of potential. The 
new team members are: 
Chris Lang, Mike Collum, 
Kerry Brito, Floyd Hiebert, 
Allen Valenzuela, Jon 
Marcom, Myron Mixon, Tim 
Tullock, Scot Henderson, 
David Butler, Tommy Bates, 
Paul Jenks, Julie Reed, 
Shauna McClain, Donna 
Kyzer, Karen Artress, 
Vonda Clark, Rani Styles, 
Sandi Monteperto, Karen 
Schwotzer, and Kim 

In choosing the team, besides 
the basic skills required, 
balance, guts, positive attitude, 
and willingness to talk about 
the Adventist life-style were 
considered. The team will be 
going to local malls to perform 
at our health booths. Also, they 
are scheduled for programs in 

Jacksonville, Florida, Bass 
Academy, and Oakwood Col- 
lege. Their main project for this 
semester is the Southern Union 
Gymnastics workshop. About 
300 academy students will be 
coming to this clinic, financed 
by SC's Public Relations 

There are two changes in this 
year's team. The first change is 
a plan to incorporate more 
team activities, such as 
pyramids; a choreographed, 
fast-paced, difficult routine us- 
ing mixed doubles; and a slow 
silhouette routine using black 
lights and acentuating lines. 

The second change is a dif- 
ferent coach, Ted Evans. 
Coach Evans feels excited and 
a bit nervous about coaching 
the team. He coached a gym- 
nastics team for three years 
before he came to SC and 
hasn't been involved in 
gyinaristics in the last ten years. 
He say's "I'm committed and 
the team's committed, and 
there's no telling how far we 
can go and what we can do. 
Also, Myron is a good guy to 
lean on because he has 
organizational skills, is a good 
teacher, and full of ideas." 

A new member of the team, 
Vonda Clark remarked "Coach 

Evans is organized, has a lot of 
Christian spirit in wanting to 
keep God number one, and 
seems like he will add a lot of 
fun." The team caught a taste 
of Evan's humor when they j 
were invited to a four-course 
meal at his home. Those who 
were weight-conscious saved 
calories for the expected grand 
meal. After being seated at a 
long table, they were handed a j 
list of items they could order in 
their four courses. The names 
of the dishes gave indications to 
what morsels were to only the 
most perceptive minds, so not 
until after ordering did they 
discover what their supper was • 
to be. For example, a sleeping j 
relative was a napkin, Eve's 
temptation-applesauce, breath ! 
charger-onions, and a atomic 
power-beans. If one didn't hap- I 
pen to order a fork-well, that 1 
was too bad. The team 
retaliated by disappearing out- 1 
side after the second course so 
that Coach Evans would serve ] 
an empty table. After the 1 
"meal" restrictions were lifted, " 
everyone satisified their growl- 
ing stomachs. With a team | 
beginning like the above, SC j 
will probably be in for a

An Analysis of 
Women's Softball 


Steve Martin 
This year in women's 
Mickie Easley's team came out 
on top with a flawless 6-0 
record to win this years 
Women's Softball Champion- 
ship. There were seven teams in 
this years Women's League. 
The final standings are as 

Women's Slowpitch 

Team Wins Losses 




Easley's team boasted a very 
explosive offense anchored by 
Easley herself, First baseman 
Loretta Messer and short stop 
Andrea Kiture. Easley's team 
averaged 15 points a game, and 
was by far the best team in this 
worn is league. 

Ea .ey felt she had a good 
team his year but was dissa- 
poin i in the participation of 
the \ >men this year. The big 
conti versy that kept coming 
up at year was the "Pick-Up" 
rule. This rule w; 
keep forfeits to a 
the girls that wanted to play 
could," says Steve Jaecks, "but 
it was. misused some this year. 

I was very dissapointed in this 
years Women's League as a 
whole." Easley also felt that the 
"Pick-Up" rule was misused. 
When asked if she had any sug- 
gestion for making women's 
softball better she said, "I 
would like to see the women 
have a tournament, not as long 
as the mens, but something that 
the women would enjoy. 
Maybe a singles elimination 
tournament would be ap- 
propriate. 1 also would like to 
see a Faculty women's team. I 
would really like to see fastpitch 
for women. I think that with 
practice and time women could 
make the adjustment and enjoy 
a new aspect of the game." 

1 asked Steve Jaecks his view- 
point on these matters and he 
said, "these suggestions are 
good ones and I would be will- 
ing to try them if the women 
show an interest in wanting to 
do it. There is no need to make 
these changes if only half the 
girls show up for there games. 
There are alot of good 
women athletes at S.C. and this 
reporter would really like to see 
more participation and the 
limits that are set on women's 
sports lifted.

|just cruise along. Also, my car 
won't do anything else. 

There are some very nice 
tomes along the way. They are 
big rambling places with lawns 
Jthat I would hate to mow, and 
■ beautiful drives up to the doors- 
I -the American dream come 
I true, more or less. Also, there 
are some places that make me 
think of the third world, not 
quite Kwampachea look, but 
definitely not the style brought 
to mind when we think of 
civilized western life. Anyway, 
there is some scenic driving 
around here, if you are in- 
terested in contrast. . . OK. 

I was going to town because 
I thought maybe there would be 
a sale on Arrow shirts or 
something. Also, I wanted to 
get a fish. The one I borrowed 
from the dorm lobby apparent- 
ly had a breathing problem 
because he stopped about an 
hour after he was poured into 
his new home. (Don't tell the 
dean! I was going to put him— 
the fish-back so that he could 
be eaten alive in a split second 
by a trigger fish. Really, I 
didn't want to alter his destiny; 
just let him kick back for 

awhile and enjoy some cool 
jazz or something.) 

But like I said, I was going to 
town (on the freeway now) with 
Mr. Ed (that is my car's name) 
at a legal lope. I passed by the 
knife museum and wondered 
for the thousandth time what 
could be so interesting about a 
bunch of old knives. For a mo- 
ment, I could see it all, "Jo Bob 
Billy Jack caponized the last 
bear in these parts with this 
knife back in 1859. He (Jo Bob) 
later died of food poisoning at 
the ripe old age of 42." Or 
maybe, "Gen. Lee used this 
knife to clean and trim his 
finger nails on this very spot in 
the heat of battle. What a 

(Dear Reader, you are by 
now probably wondering where 
I am going with this narrative. 
Suffice to say that I am still go- 
ing into town.) 

So, I was going into town at 
a legal lope, like I already said. 
The gas gauge was low; isn't 
everyone's at SC? I pulled off 
the slow lane just after East 
Gate Mall, because that's where 
I was going. I was in a 
masochistic mood and 
wouldn't have minded a little 
pain; I was ready to be maul- 
ed. (Incidentally, that is an old 
term which usually refers to 
something or someone being 
ripped up and destroyed 

beyond recognition by either a 
bear or a lion. The term is ac- 
tually derived from the ex- 
periences old ladies have when, 
on Friday afternoons , they 
enter these institutions without 
hearing aids or glasses.) 

I put Mr. Ed in a place where 
he would be comfortable for 
awhile and entered through the 
Burger King. Suddenly I flash- 
ed on something else I could 
get. . .a room key. My thoughts 
went sort of as follows: I don't 
leave a stamp with my signature 
in my check book; I don't keep 
my code number written on my 
automatic teller card; I don't 
leave a note that says "these 
keys are to my car, license 
number thus & such." Do you 
follow me? Why should have 
my room key with my room 
number on it? If lost, it is an 
open invitation for someone to 
make themselves at home in my 
room, not that I'd really mind, 
but you know. Besides, it costs 
ten dollars to get another one 
from the front desk, but if I 
lose a copy, it's only a dollar to 
make one in town. 

As it turns out, there is a lit- 
tle note on the back of the key 
that says something like, "Do 
not duplicate." And it costs fif- 
teen dollars to bribe the 
locksmith-obviously a cost 
prohibitive venture. Not to 
mention, it would be on my 

couldn't live with 
myself having bribed someone 
for no monetary gain. 

So the trip to East Gate was 
a waste because there were no 
Arrow shirts on sale, and the 
pet store had moved out. No 
new clothes, no fish, and no 
generic room key. . .it was a 
waste of gas, a waste of time, 
and if you want to get picky, it 
was a waste of tire tread. 

After I had walked around 
the mall some more, and all 
these wastes finally dawned on 
me, I went out to* the parking 
lot and tried to remember 
where I parked. When I got 
back to my car I gave Mr. Ed 
his head, and he naturally 
started for California. I had to 
warp him back towards 

It was a nice drive actually. 
I had the windows rolled down 
and the radio turned up. The 
sun was setting and some high 
clouds in the west were reflec- 
ting yellow and red light. I 
wondered if it was possible to 
see the green flash over land. 
The sky above me was a sharp 
azure while in the east it was 
darker, and a few of the 
brighter stars were getting a 
head start on the night. The 
bugs were staying out of my 
way, bless their hearts; they 
weren't crowding the wind- 
shield. The road seemed a little 

smoother than it really was. I 
had one hand on the wheel and 
one hand cupping the wind that 
was whistling over the side 

Just off Lee Highway there 
is a crooked old guy who lives 
in an old cinderblock 
bungalow; he has it tastefully 
decorated after the third world 
look, which is in vogue in his 
neighborhood. I honked my 
horn in sort of a salute to him, 
as is the custom, and he grin- 
ned and waved back. 

At four corners I stopped 
and scowled at the local sup- 
plier of caffeine for SC. 

Back at school I was just in 
time to miss dinner. I was so 
happy. Mr. Ed was grateful to 
be turned off. I bounded up to 
my room determined not to tell 
a soul that I had gone to town 
and had not invited them. Some 
people take that very personal- 
ly. This taking of offense can 
lead to an awkward little con- 
frontation in which both parties 
make it clear to the other that 
just because you've met 
one.. .doesn't mean you've met 
them all. 

I didn't meet one. And so I 
didn't have to act like one. 

In the words of Roger 
Daltrey, "Just another tricky 
day for me." 

Terry. . . 

spinal column back together, 
but the critical danger hadn't 
passed. About three days after 
the surgery, Terry quit 
breathing and for five weeks 
lived on a respirator. 

"Those weeks were the most 
depressing," Terry said. 'I 
couldn't talk, and in three 
weeks I lost 40 pounds. I'd look 
out my window and see spring 
bringing everything to life while 
it seemed my own was simply 
disintegrating." After getting 
off the respirator Terry began 
to overcome the shock of his 

"There's really no way to 
describe how traumatic it was," 
Terry said. "I was so physical- 
ly drained that I had no emo- 
tional strength. As I started to 
get better I regained my emo- 
tions and started rediscovering 
myself. I was a totally new 

After his hospitalization 
Terry went to Birmingham, 
Alabama, for rehabilitation 
where he was taught the current 
living techniques for the 
paralyzed. He then began adap- 

ting to a new style of living. 

"You never snap back," he 
states. "You have to start from 
where you are, and slowly, very 
slowly, things change back to a 
normal life." 

"I had grown to feel like a 
machine," he contiunes, "with 
doctors talking about my heart 
and blood pressure in a way 
similar to a couple of men 
discussing the engine of a 
Chevy. It was hard to start feel- 
ing like a person again, 
discovering a personality, tastes 
in clothing, etc., when for such 
a long time my only goal was in 
staying alive." 

Being the fighter that he is, 
Terry accomplished that goal, 
even making it to his gradua- 
tion at Highland during his 
rehabilitation period. 

"It's not courage so much as 
it is simply wanting to live," 
Terry states. "I have a strong 
desire to live; I love life and am 
more ambitious now than I was 
before the accident." 

Before, Terry had wanted to 
major in computer science and 
business, and work with his 

father in "Wilks Publications." 
He also wanted to join the gym- 
nastics team here at Southern 
though he claims he was never 
"super good." 

Now, he's working on a 
degree in mechanical engi- 
neering, following his enjoy- 
ment of design, and hopes to 
finish it up at Georgia Tech. 

"I've always wanted to be an 
engineer," Terry asserts, "and 
I decided that it would be bet- 
ter for me to go for something 
I really wanted than something 
I felt I ought to do." 

His interests, Terry main- 
tains, have not changed 
dramatically. He simply found 
new ways to enjoy them. He 
loves horses and someday 
hopes to breed and raise them. 

Terry is also an artist. He 
draws with a pencil in his 
mouth, with his face six inches 
from the easel, a fact his talent 
has not suffered from. 

Yet despite the adjustments 
that he has made, Terry has 
often wondered "Why me?" 
and has experienced times of 
bitterness directed at the seem- 

ing unfairness of his physical 
handicaps, but adds that he 
tries not to think about such 
things anymore. 

"They say not facing the 
facts is bad," he said, "but 
sometimes it is necessary-in 
order to keep persevering. 

Since the accident, Terry 
believes that his spiritual life 
has become more realistic. "I 
see God as my partner and aid, 

more than an imperial to 
serve," he states. 

I feel God has given me a set 
of general guidelines, " said 
Terry, "and wants me to find 
my own way in them." 

Terry is determined to suc- 
ceed in his future, whichever 
direction it takes. 

"Life has dealt me a hard 
blow," he admits, "but it can't 
stop me from living."

Dear Editor, 

This letter is in response to 
your last issue's publication of 
a letter from Valerie Boston. 
She apparently is not informed 
about the "true issues" that are 
involved in both macroecono- 
mics as well as our country's 
system of politics. 

She says, in essence, that 
Reagan's economic policies aid 
the rich and hinder or deprive 
fhe poor. Is she totally unaware 
that the number one enemy of 
the poor is a high inflation rate? 
Reagan has only cut the infla- 
tion rate by better than fify per- 

cent. What more is he to do 
help them in this regard, short 
of handing out meal tickets 
She also criticizes the fact that 
he was an actor and is able to 
communicate with great expet- 
tise. Does she desire another 
president that keeps us in the 
dark about his policies and 
can't communicate effectively? 
Also, what's wrong with con- 
centrating on the good i n 
America instead of dwelling on 
the bad. Didn't someone once 
say that a positive outlook wil] 
bring a positive outcome? 

In closing, please let us open 
our minds to the whole story 
before we begin to pick at the

The First Editorial 
written by Frances Andrews 

The purpose of the Southern Accent during the current school 
year is to give wide coverage of the news and activities of Southern 
Missionary College. Friends and parents of students will be kept 
informed of happenings on the campus, and students themselves 
will learn of events with which they are unfamiliar. 

As the size of our college increases, and the number of activities 
grows, constant improvements will be made in the paper. We an- 
ticipate maintaining the same size and grade of paper as we now 
have, with as many cuts and cartoons as possible. 

Therefore, support the paper representing your interests at 
Southern Missionary College. We need 1700, but hope for 2000 
subscriptions. The campaign for subscription * (sic) ends October 
31. If you haven 't received a letter, send in the attached blank. 
We want you to know what's happening at Southern Missionary 
College. pEA

The Business Club has 
started signing up members. 
For five dollars one will be 
issued a share (membership 
card) that will entitle the holder 
"to all rights, privileges and ac- 
tivities for the 1984-85 fiscal 
year" of the local Business 
Club," said the recently-elected 
President, John Brownlow. 

At the last club chapel, 
(Thursday September 27) the 
Division of Business and Office 
Administration intended to 
elect nine members to the Ad- 
visory Board from the seven- 
teen on the ballot. Since there 
was a tie there are ten people on 
the Board. They met Monday, 
October 1, to elect officers 
from among themselves. 

The officers of the club are 
John Brownlow, President; 
Susie Crabtree, Executive Vice- 
President and Public Relations; 
Steve Wilson, Vice-President 

for Finance; Garth Thoresen, 
Vice-President for Social Ac- 
tivities; Donald Chase, Vice- 
President for Religious Affairs; 
Chip Cannon, Vice-President 
for Records; Mike Dickerhof f , 
Gary Howe, Bobby Kendall 
and Mike Waller, Advisory 
Board Members. Sponsors are 
Richard Erickson and Dan 

To the accusation that the 
dues this year are a dollar over 
last year's, the President 
responded, "But they're going 
to get a lot more for then- 
money than last year." 

"We're excited about the 
coming year," said President 
Brownlow on election day. 
When asked what he had 
planned, Brownlow was not 
very enthused about being 
quoted since he had had little 
time to confirm arrangements. 
However, some of the 

possibilities to be investigated 
and planned are the following: 
Business Club Weekend Retreat 
at Fall Creek Falls, Christmas

Professor Joseph L. Correa, 
an educator and well-known 
speaker from Peru, South 
America, will be conducting a 
seminar on mind conditioning 
as it relates to today's Chris- 
tians at the Apison SDA 
Church School Auditorium this 

"People are being pro- 
grammed and manipulated by 
many things in today's socie- 
ty," says Correa. "There is so 
much deception going on in the 
area of mind conditioning that 
we want to make people aware 
of what is really happening." 

Correa, who has a Master's 
degree in music education and 
psychology, along with his wife 
Lindy, has done extensive 
research on the subject of men- 
tal health and human behavior. 
Consequently, he offers insight, 
information, and counsel in the 
area of positive Christain 

Four different presentations 
will be made, one on Friday 
evening at 7:00 p.m. and three 
on Sabbath at 9:30 and 11:00 
a.m. and 5 p.m. The final 

presentation on Sabbath after- 
noon, entitled "St. George and 
the Dragon," is an informative, 
multi-media program revealing 
deceptions ranging from con- 
temporary Christian music to 
games such as Dungeons and 

The seminar is intended to be 
useful for Christians desiring to 
build a strong personal relation- 
ship with God and replacing 
negative atitudes and thinking 
for a more positive successful 

"Anyone wanting to reduce 
their lukewarmness and lack of 
interest in spiritual things, 
should not miss this seminar," 
states Mrs. Correa, who along 
with her husband has given this 
instruction to Christians all 
over the U.S. and win be travel- 
ing to Rome, Italy, next week 
to conduct a seminar there. 

The seminar is free, open to 
the public, and intended to be 
of interest to all age groups. 
The auditorium is located on 
Bates Road near the intersec- 
tion of Brainerd Road and 
Apison Pike about three miles 
from Collegedale.

Annual Pops Concert 
This Saturday 


"America 1984" will be the 
central theme for music to be 
presented next Saturday night 
by four major musical groups 
at Southern College of Seventh- 
day Adventists. 

The Southern College Pops 
Concert at 8:15 p.m. on Oc- 
tober 13, in the Physical Educa- 
tion Building, is a program in 
the Artist-Adventure Series on 
the Collegedale campus. 

The 66-member Symphony 
Orchestra, directed by Orlo 
Gilbert, will lead off with "The 
Star Spangled Banner" and "A 
Star Spangled Spectacular" in 
the first segment. "Brian's 
Song," "Yesterday," and 
"Dance of the Comedians" are 
also planned. 

"Step to the Rear," "Save 
the Bones of Henry Jones," "If 
1 Had a Hammer," and "Blue 
Skies" are some of the popular 
numbers in the repertoire of the 
Chamber Singers. The mixed- 
voice group is composed of two 
dozen students led by Dr. Don 

' 'A bunch of Southern songs 
which take care of some re- 
quests" will be played by the 
Concert Band, according to Pat 
Silver, conductor. "Dixie," 
"Chattanooga Choo-Choo," 
"Carolina in the Morning" and 
"Alabama Jubilee" are a few 
of them. A march, "The 
Southerner," as well as selec- 
tions from the musical, "An- 
nie," will be included. Over 80 
members are in the band. 

The fourth campus musical 
organization on the progarm 
will be Die Meistersinger, led by 
Dr. Marvin L. Robertson, 
chairman of the Divison of 
Music at Southern College. Ty- 
ing in directly with the Statue of 
Liberty stage setting, the male 
chorus will be singing, "Give 
Me Your Tired, Your Poor." 
Other numbers are "Once in

Those Songs," and as finale, 
"Battle Hymn of the

Fall Religion Retreat 
A Success 

The same weekend that the 
SM Club held its fall retreat, 
the Southern Ministries 
Association held its own. 
Braving the cold weather, the 
Division of Religion and the 
religion majors' club co- 
sponsored a retreat last 
weekend at Hidden Valley 
Youth Camp in Apison. Along 
with the blessings of a relaxing 
weekend of fellowship, those 
attending were refreshed by 
Elder Warren Johns' presenta- 
tions on the unique blending of 
theology and geology. Friday 
night the speaker demonstrated 
Adventist's distinctive roots are 
in God's creative powers and 
His promised second coming. 
Thus the importance of our- 
name Seventh-day comes from 
Genesis, and the name Adven- 
tist comes from Revelation. 

Following a chilly evening, 
we gathered for Sabbath School 
in the warm dining hall the next 
morning. The adult Sabbath 
School was presented by a 
panel of students, moderated 

by Dale Morgan. Many cob- 
mented that it was the highlit" 
of the weekend. 

Sabbath afternoon was speal 
in fellowship and free tiro. 
allowing the retreat to achieve 
its goal-a time to escape fro" 
the frantic pace of college a 
to commune with our Creator. 
After this time of leisure, El* 
Johns presented "10,000 VoW 
in Nature," in which he dn» 
analogies and lessons which o* 
can learn by observing G»» 
creatures. All enjoyed his at* 
ty to relate to "the children" 
all ages" during this spec" 1 
"children hour". 

Upon reflection during t" 
final devotional on Sun« 
morning, several 8* 
testimonies to the rededica" ' 
redirection, and renewed ^ 
spiration gained durins

As of July 1, 1982, Southern 
Missionary College will be no 
more. In a meeting held Tues- 
day, February 16, the Board of 
Trustees voted unamimously to 
change the name of the institu- 
tion to Southern College of 
Seventh-day Adventists. 

Of the 19 members present, 
all were in favor of the name 
chosen. Also present at the 
meeting were about 50 
members of the Committee of 
100 and 20 or so faculty 
members. In a general vote 
taken, all but two were oppos- 
ed to the name chosen, but all 
;ere in favor of change. 

Reasons given for the name 
change included the problem 
I some graduates were having on 
I job searches with the word 
I "missionary", as employers 
■ were concerned that students 
■were trained for oversea mis- 
Ision work instead of recogniz- 
ling SMC as the liberal arts col- 
llege which it is. Another reason 
I given by Dr. Wayne Thurber, 

College Public Relations Direc- 
tor, was that when trying to get 
various foundations to donate 
money to the school they are 
apprehensive about the word 

The name was derived from 
a suggestion by a name change 
committee headed by Bryan 
Strayer— Southeastern College. 
The name was shortened to 
Southern for a couple of 
reasons according to SMC 
President Frank Knittel; the 
first reason being that the union 
in which our college is situated 
includes more than the 
southeast region of the country; 
the second being to avoid con- 
fusion with the new 
Southeastern Conference of 
Seventh-day Adventists. 

Dr. Knittel reported that he 
will fully support the name 
change decision. When ques- 
tioned about the student reac- 
tion to the change Knittel 
said, "There is always an initial 
adverse reaction when an in- 

stitution changes its name," 
and cited a similar discordant 
attitude which existed when 
Emmanuel Missionary College 
changed its name to Andrews 
Univeristy in the past. 

When speaking about the ap- 
parent length of the name com- 
pared to the present one Knit- 
tel says,"l anticipate that an 
abbreviated version. Southern

Knittel also feels that the addi- 
tion of "Seventh-day Adven- 
tists" to the end of the name is 
no major concern as several 
other church related institu- 
tions, hospitals, etc., have this 
addition to their names. 
Thurber reported that this 
name change idea has been an- 
ticipated for three or four 


The general reaction of the 
students is one of strong op- 
position. Soon after the name 
change was voted on, before 
the faculty-board banquet, 
which followed the board <fl 
meeting, was over, more than 
700 students had signed a peti- 
tion that asked the board to 
reconsider its decision.

Era Ends as Talge Hall Comes Down 

The old makes way for the 
new, and an era ends as Talge 
Hall comes down at Southern 
Missionary College. 

Talge Hall, named after Mr. 
John H. Talge of Indiana, has 
been razed at SMC, and a new 
library will go up in its place. 
Shortly after having moved the 
college to its present site from 
Graysville, the College Board 
planned a new men's dormitory, 
to be started in 1918 and finish- 
ed in 1919. 

The men lived in what was 
called the "Yellow House," (the 
Thatcher Mansion), in tent 
houses, and in an old make- 
shift dormitory. Part of the 
money for the new dormitories 
was provided by the General 
Conference, hut it was insuffi- 

Mn. lilva Gardner writes in 
her history that World War I 
had interfered in raising funds 
and getting necessary help to 
complete the building in time for 
the opening of the fall school 
term in 1919. 

"BhV' Mrfi. Gardner con- 
tinues, "the two union presi- 
dents, Elder Branson and Elder 
Wight, called in most of the 
workers in the two unions con- 
ference for a 'workers bee* to 
help erect the new building. All 
who could leave their work came 
with overalls, hammers, and 
saws. The fifty that responded 
lived in tents while erecting the 
new dormitory. These were 
joined by a few volunteer work- 
ers. One of the men, who had a 
broken arm, still did his part in 
planning the work and over- 
seeing the enterprise. No archi- 
tect was employed. 

"The lumber used in the 

Billy Sunday Tabernacle in 
Atlanta. The men pulled out the 
nails, straightened pounds of 
them, then found they couldn't 
use the nails because they 
couldn't be driven into the hard 
wood. It was while these men 
were building the dormitory that 
they heard the November 11, 
1918, Armistice Day excitement 

in Chattanooga, 18 miles away. 

"When the funds for the 

dormitory ran out early in 1919, 

the work was at a standstill, but

lumber and by Unking it and 
doing other fobs suitable to 
their ability. The dumii lot y was

of the depression of 1920-22. 

At the Founders Day pro-

had been dedicated to "Mr. 
Talge, whose interest in' the 
growth and development of 
Southern Junior College, 
prompted him to support loyally 
the founders and burden-bearers 
of this institution in those crises 
where the challenge brought 
from him such abundant and 
outstanding liberality that the 
future success of the college 
must always be due in no small 
measure to his generous gifts." 
Mr. Talge died March 12.1952.

A Dedication... 

In keeping with the theme of this issue the Accent Staff 
felt that it would be a good idea to interview the very 
first student editor. There was one problem with this 
idea, however: to Find the person. First of all, we had 
to checkout the bound issues in the SDA Room of the 
McKee Library. After going through the first few 
issues, we found what we were looking for. This 
reporter wouldn't have to go very far to track the first 
editor down for an interview. The very first student 
editor of our school paper was Frances Andrews, who 
is currently teaching in the Communications Depart- 
ment here at Southern College. Miss Andrews has been 
part of the college for nineteen years as both student 
and teacher. She has at one time or another filled nearly 
every staff position on the paper. The Southern Accent 
would like to take this opportunity to dedicate this 
anniversary issue to Miss Andrews.

to Mr. Edgar Grundset, chairman 
of the Social Committee of the 

"Students may plan the party 
and request to use the faculty mem- 
ber's home, or faculty members may 
plan the party and invite students," 
said Mr. Grundset 

Some students and faculty mem-

parties, and Mr. Grundset urged 
that plans be made early and guests 
invited so that the last minute rush

Hoping that the reader fully 
understands the above statements, 
I would like to talk about a subject 
that v**™ to be gaining momentum 
among discussants. It has by 

evolved into an undercurrent 
of detention and faction forming, 
but presently is what we might call 
piece. The topic: the 
school name; the issue: to change 

May I state first that my feeling 
on this subject is influenced by four 
factors: my observation, my reli- 
gion, my senior class standing and 
my thinking. I definitely feel that 

Missionary College will be a detri- 
ment to this school, its purpose, 
its standing, its student body, its 
standards and its progressive future. 
Influential Factors 
First, my observation. Surpris- 
ingly enough, one of the strongest 
arguments for changing the name 
is in actuality the strongest reason 
for not changing it: "Everybody 
else is changini 

Following after others does 
not make leaders, nor does it jet 
standards. Too many mistakes are 
made by thoughtlessly following 
after others. 

Secondly, my religion. As a 
Seventh-day Adventist, I am proud 

of the respect my denomination has 
Especially on our Ingathi 

Day, I am proud to have people ask 

about Southern Missionary Col- i 
lege. Questions demand answers— \ 
right answers. Students, we have 

Thirdly, my class standing as a 
nior. Perhaps this will be the 
hardest for many to understand. 
When the time comes for one to 
check the place marked "Senior" 
his registration card, there is an 
ier desire to shout from one end 
the campus to the other, "I'm a 
ior!" Mixed with this internal 
exuberance is a sobering realization 
is, goals, concepts, 
and philosophy of life have taken 
on a sudden boldness of reality. 
Not that they have just suddenly 
formed, but that they have been 
conceived, developed, nurtured and 
strengthened at Southern Mission- 
ary College, the School of Stand- 
ards. Call it emotions if you like, 
but I am sure there isn't a potential

wouldn't feel slightly severed from

volves changing meanings. 
Fourthly, my thinking. This, I 
ask everybody to do for the next 
few minutes, hoping, of course, 
that the above paragraphs have 
already stimulated this process. 
Several students have feh that the 
word "missionary" in our name is 
a stigma. These students, the ma- 
jority being freshmen — and from 
my own experience as a fres hm a n , 
have empathy with them — feel that 
people outside our denomination 
have a completely different con- 
notation of "missionary." This 
word, they seem to feel, brings to 
mind immediately a boat trip over- 
seas, seclusion, sacrifice and aft 
about-face to intelligence and 
scholarly, collegiate education. In 

hand as part of the steps in getting 
a job, we naturally would like to 
influence the employer with a 
highly accepted and well-known 
college name, meaning the influ- 
ence of thought that goes along 
with such names as Duke, North 
Carolina State, etc. But ... as soon 
as the "Missionary" in Southern 
Missionary College rings in his 
cars, immediately he is going to 
expect something more from you

One of the highlights of this 
year's Artist Adventure Series 
is "The Best of Candid 
Camera" featuring Allen Funt 
on Saturday night SMC Alum- 
ni Weekend. 

Funt is world renowned for 
his ability to catch ordinary 
people unaware through 
endless variations of practical 
jokvs on film. Since 1954 Funt 
has oeen capturing expressions 
of lie average US citizen by 
hiding microphones and 
can eras virtually all over the 

A good indication of Funt's 
popularity is the fact that all the 
tickets for this program, in- 
cluding the no charge section, 

were sold out within a span of 
four hours. According to Dr. 
Jack McClarty, Director of the 
Artist Adventure Series, "We 
had planned on opening a ticket 
booth at the College Plaza, but 
it was all too apparent that we 
would not be able to go any far- 
ther than the Student Center. 
As long as there have been Ar- 
tist Adventure Series, there 
have always been seats 
available. This is simply 
amazing 1 

In the future, says Dr. 
McClarty, it might be possible 
to have the same program 
twice, once on Saturday night 
and once on Sunday night on 
Alumni Weekends. He stated 

this when referring to the fact 
that the reserved sections for 
the Alumni constitute nearly 
one-half of the available seats. 
At the conclusion of the Can- 
did Camera program, Funt is 
willing to talk with those who 
are interested in communica- 
tions or those who are curious 
about his work.

Night Patrol On the Prowl 

Name Change Survey 

Bill Marcom 

Lightfooted, like back- 
woods trappers, they prowl 
through the night shadows that 
blanket SMC, or crouch in the 
deep shadows to watch and 
wait, .-for crime to occur, for a 
i be burglarized, for a 
building to be pillaged... 

They are guardians, protec- 
tors of our cars and campus- 
and their walkie talkies can help 
them call up the cavalry by link- 
ing them quickly to the Col- 
legedale Police Dept., should 
any really heavy criminal activi- 
ty be encountered. 

Probably the school-funded 
night patrol is taken for granted 
by students, yet their service to 
I us is essential for campus 
| security, and even the security 
| of the surrounding Collegedale 
Larea. For example, the God- 
I fearing people of this com- 
Imunity are concerned about 
Idrug traffic, but few of them 
Irealize that even the campus's 
■night patrol occasionally 
tbecomes involved in investiga- 
tions to thwart the problem. 

Jack Kovalski, an SMC stu- 
I dent and paid member of the 
^■patrol, related an incident to me 
I of last spring... 

Following a lead that perhaps 
a narcotics deal might be "go- 
ling down" in the student park, 
1 Jack, Dean Brunken, and Ted 
I Webster surrounded the park 
I and began to penetrate it on 
1 foot. Ordering walkie-talkie 
I silence among themselves (so 
I that the supposed dope dealers 
[ wouldn't hear their approach) 
L they slowly closed in; the an- 
[ ticipation of danger up ahead 
wound their nerves into tight 
L coils. 

Then, abruptly, PamKeele's 
shattered the night 
silence, as it errupted from the 
three talkies at full volume, to 
| ask, "Are you boys scared out 
I there?" (She was, herself, 
seated comfortably, safely at 
the Thatcher desk dispatch 
J radio.) 

Anyway, as Jack explained it 

to me, the sudden sound of her 
voice in that silent night, as they 
crept toward possible danger, 
gave him the same sort of a 
start one feels when someone 
walks up behind you and shouts 
BOO! He claims that his 
physical reaction, an impromp- 
tu high jump, may have exceed- 
ed any on record! 

By the way, no criminals 
were found. 

Then Jack recounts the night 
he was touring the biology 
building's lower level, flashlight 
in hand, when suddenly he en- 
countered a bobcat, fangs 
bared, paws audaciously raised, 
eyes agleem with ferocity. 

It was a apparent from his in- 
itial fear that the taxonomist 
had done superior work! 

And, then there was the night 
(2:30 a.m.) that Jack and Dean 
Brunken found themselves in a 
foot chase, in heavy pursuit of 
a suspect who was fleeing the 
campus area. When they had at 
last detained the suspect, one of 
those classic moments of em- 
barrassment ensued; the suspect 
was a woman, in her 40's, who 
was merely indulging a whim to 
go jogging. 

Did you know that it is 
general procedure for the night 
patrol to stop and question 
anyone found wandering on the 
campus grounds after 10:30 
p.m.? Mrs. Knittel, let 'em 
know you're coming in ad- 
vance! (sic) 

More on the serous side, and 
in all fairness to Jack, his job 
is not a comedy, as it would 
seem. In this interivew he 
displayed devotion and en- 
thusiams toward his night wat- 
chman's job, and he admitted 
frankly and openly that he was 
concerned about the image the 
night patrol projected to the 
public it serves. He expressed 
fear that perhaps students have 
an incomplete understanding of 
the role of the night patrol, and 
may refuse to recognize it as a 
legitimate extension of campus 

law enforcement. 

So far this year, Jack reports, 
security has been quiet- 
perhaps partly because last year 
a CB and car stereo theft ring 
was caught by the Collegedale 
and Hamilton County Police. 
This ring could hit six cars in 
broad daylight! 

Sounding ebullient and op- 
timistic, Jack contended that 
with the higher quality caliber 
of young people that are atten- 
ding SMC this year, most pro- 
blems of theft will be external. 

The night patrol- they don't 
carry guns, but they still serve 
you and me. Their principal 
tools are their eyes and their 
ears, and sometimes swift legs. 
So, remember... 10:30!

AWWARE Program Started By Students 

Lori Selby 
Although substance abuse 
I traditionally has not been a ma- 
I jor concern within Seventh-day 
I Adventist institutions, in recent 
lyears, the subject has come 
lunder much scrutiny. Accor- 
Iding to several sources, the 
Ttrend among college age young 
eople—unfortunately, in- 
cluding some SDA young 
people— is a shift towards 
alcohol consumption, which is 
legal and readily available. 

Larry Williams, a professor 
i the Behavioral Science Divi- 
sion and a practicing profes- 
sional counselor, commented 
le of the reasons young 
beople get into substance abuse: 
first, it can be a means to cope. 
j secret that the American 
family is under attack and that 
Increasing numbers of young 
eople are dealing with the pain 
£nd problems of a broken 
Another aspect is that 
college young people today are 

Southern Miasio^^c^,^ 
Collegadaie, Te naesaee 3731S 

required to master more 
material in less time than in 
years gone by. The academic 
and financial pressures have in- 
creased tremendously. Also 
confronting Adventist young 
people is the questioning within 
our church. Though hammer- 
ing out doctrinal issues and our 
relationship to Mrs. White can 
be a positive thing, for some it 
produces a sense of uncertainty. 
Second, young people may 
get into substance abuse, not as 
a coping mechanism, but "just 
to party." Peer pressure may 
play a role in each of the above 
categories if the young person 
has not settled on his own value 
system and learned to make 
decisions independently. Guilt 
and low self-esteem may also be 
contributory factors. Whatever 
the reasons, substance abuse re- 
mains a dead-end street.(For 
another viewpoint on why some 
young Adventists get involved 

in substance abuse, see the 
March 13, 1984 issue of The 

Recognizing this trend, 
several students here at 
Southern College have formed 
an organization to help those 
involved in substance abuse. 
AWWARE, (Adventists Work- 
ing With Addiction Rehabilita- 
tion), is headed by Cary 
Hambleton and Kevin Klinvex. 
Kevin, a junior psychology 
major-religion minor, was rais- 
ed in an atmosphere where 
drinking was accepted; later he 
and many of his friends at Penn 
State "partied." He says he 
understands the part alcohol 
can play in some people's lives 
and that he's seen the effects in 
the lives of his friends. Cary 
Hambleton, who attended SDA 
schools, has overcome the pro- 
blem of alcohol in his own life. 
The two emphasize that they do 
not look down on those involv- 

ed with alcohol or drugs- 
they've been there and they 

AWWARE started out 
primarily as a support group 
for those wishing to get out of 
substance abuse. Cary and 
Kevin, and also Mark Wedel, 
and Karen Heidenriech, are 
available anytime day or night 
to talk with someone having 
problems with drugs or alcohol. 
Kevin states that it's very im- 
portant for a young person to 
have a support system of 
friends other than a drinking 
group, and that it's important 
for that person to see that he 
can have peace in his life 
without alcohol. 

AWWARE has expanded to 
include educating the student 
body about drugs and alcohol, 
and most importantly, how to 
help someone who is involved. 
The group has presented chapel 
programs and films, and is ar- 

ranging for guest lecturers who 
will teach how to recognize and 
deal with substance abuse. 

Funded through CABL, 
AWWARE is sanctioned by 
Everett Schlisner, Dean of Stu- 
dent Affairs, and by the dor- 
mitory deans. However, 
AWWARE is operated entire- 
ly by students. Kevin explains 
that kids who shy away from 
faculty as authority figures, 
may relate better to a peer who 
has been through a similar ex- 
perience. AWWARE, in addi- 
tion to group support, will be 
able to refer those with more 
extensive problems to Roses 
Coleman Taylor, a professional 
counselor in the community 
who serves as an advisor and 
resource person. Kevin stresses 
that confidentiality is important 
to each member of the group. 

In several weeks the group 
will be meeting with represen-

Thursday Raid Results in 
Emergency Meeting 

H.M.S. Richards, Jr., to 
Preach at Chattanooga 

One might say that it was in- 
evitable once the signs pro- 
claiming that the electricity 
would be out Thursday evening 
went up. That night a host of 
i from Talge Hall went on 
|a raid in Thatcher Hall, the 
women's residence. 
The reason for the black-out 
I was that the Power Board need- 
| ed to change a transformer in 
Because the Village 
f Market and other businesses 
continue their business until 
9:00 p.m., the Power Board 
elected to do their work from 
9:30 on. A decision to do the 
work earlier would have 
resulted in lost revenue for 
these businesses. 

However, no sooner had the 
lights gone out at approximate- 
ly 9:40 p.m., Thursday, did the 
"fun" begin. Shouts and 
screams of men and women 
chasing each other in the area 
between the residence halls 
went up immediately. All of 
this bantering was in innocent 
fun until plans for a raid were 

Suspecting that an occur- 
rence of this sort might happen, 
[ he men's and women's deans 
had the residence assistants pro- 
tecting meir respective halls and 

Thatcher Hall. When the men 
insisted on pushing their way 
through security, the police 
were called in. During the raid, 
a security guard was hit by a 
student; however, who the in- 
stigator of this incident was (the 
guard or the student) has not 
been confirmed. 

Some of the men were suc- 
cessful in their attempts to enter 
Thatcher Hall and subsequent- 
ly embarked on a raid of the 
women's rooms. This part of 
the incident was short-lived, 
and fortunately, nothing was 

When all was thought to 
have ended for the evening, 
another incident involving an 
unidentified student and 
another individual took place in 
Talge Hall. After exchanging 
some heated words, the student 
hit the individual, knocking 
him to the floor. 

Concerned that the raids of 
the last two years have gone too 
far, Everett Schlisner, Dean of 
Students, called a meeting for 
this past Sunday evening, Oc- 
tober 14, in which all student 
leaders participated and in 
which Thursday night was 
discussed. Wanting to get some 
student input as to how the raid 
ids should be 

handled, Schlisner used some 
of this information in a faculty 
meeting held Monday morning, 
October 15. Schlisner related to 
the student leaders that raids of 
the dorms will not be tolerated 
any longer. Individuals who are 
caught or who are found to 
have participated in a raid will 
be disciplined. (The appropriate 
disciplinary action was discuss- 
ed Monday morning. Another 
topic to have been discussed 
was how to handle those in- 
dividuals who are known to 
have participated Thursday 
evening.) One of the student 
leaders, Russell Duerksen, 
brought up an idea as to how 
to handle emergencies like the 
Thursday night black-out: In 
the future, the administration 
should be prepared to channel 
the built-up energy into positive 
activities so that the raids will 
not occur again. The majority 
of the leaders liked Russell's 
idea, and plans of this sort will 
be implemented in the future. 
In relation to Monday's 
meeting, at the time of this 
writing, none of the contents of 
it had been released. However, 
Dean Schlisner told the student 
leaders that the student body 
will be informed of its

H.M.S. Richards, Jr., direc- 
tor of the Voice of Prophecy 
radio-broadcast, will be the 
guest speaker at the Chat- 
tanooga First Seventh-day 
Adventist Church on Saturday, 
October 20. Pastor Richards 
will speak for the morning wor- 
ship service which begins at 
1 1 :00 a.m. During the Sabbath 
School, commencing at 9:30, he 
will report on action taken dur- 
ing the recent General Con- 
ference Annual Council and 
talk about the Voice of Pro- 
phecy's outreach ministry. 
Southern College students and 
the Collegedale community are 
invited to participate in this 
special occasion of worship and 

The Voice of Prophey, one 
of the longest continuous 
religious radio broadcasts in the 
nation, was founded in 1930 by 
Pastor Richards' father, 
H.M.S. Richards. Since then 
the program has expanded un- 
til it is heard daily or on Sun- 
days on some 750 stations in 
North America. Overseas, 
another 1,100 stations carry 
radio programs that bear the 
same name or are closely af- 
filiated with the Voice of 

Pastor Richards, a longtime 

favorite of the church's young 
people, has spoken at 
numerous youth congresses, Bi- 
ble camps, and campmeetings. 
Many students and community 
residents, who have become 
familiar with his ministry over 
the years, will look forward to 
the privilege of welcoming him 
to Chattanooga. The church is 
located at 400 Tunnel

OTo Break the Rules Or. 

An ironic phenomenon has come to my attention It can be 
discovered by following a logical sequence to reveal the cone u_ 
^n We are a people who abide by and uphold the pnncple bebef 
taa d^raTright? We vote people into office « .the, ■« 
govern our country. We give people power-it is not extracted from 
usTrTke iawfand rules for us to obey. We re* on their jud- 
men, in setting up standards by which we follow. W£^ 
tog aU that and proclaiming with pnde that we are a democracy 
of the people, by the people, for the people, we turn around and 
break the very laws which we set up through our power to begin 
with, isn't that strange? Couldn't a lot of steps be avoided rn 
establishing our form of government if we weren t going tc .follow 
the rules that those in power made by our request in the beginn- 
ing? We could just let everyone do as they wish, nght? How proud 
would we be of our system then? 

One might reason that there are a lot of rules that are made 
up that we just can't go along with. How many? Sure there might 
be some rules that we don't agree with, but because we have given 
authority to a certain group of lawmakers and because we claim 
to be a constituent of this country, we have at least a moral obliga- 
tion to follow almost every rule. "Render unto Caesar that which 
is Caesar's." It's the plain, ordinary, easy-to-follow rules that give 
me reason to wonder why people break them. The most simply 
stated rule of the land that probably 99.99 percent of the citizens 
of this country have broken is that of the speed limit. We go 65 
instead of 55 because we know most cops will give you 10 miles- 
i per-hour grace (except in Collegedale of course). 

The same phenomena is seen here at Southern College. How 
proud would we be of our school if everyone were allowed to do 
anything they wanted? You might say it would be great, but would 
you really think so if that were a reality? And yet we continue 
to break the basic rules that were made to uphold the standard 
of a Christian school. Why would someone want to break into 
the women's dorm? 

It's the minute laws that are made, that perhaps we don't even 
know about, that would seem to get broken most frequently. But 
why the most common rules that make us as a country or a school 
distinct? 1 believe there are some questions that need to be

Secret Sister Program a Success

Here at the University of 
Denver, we are progressing 
with the Physics Department 
research project: Henry 
Kuhlman, OrviUe Bignall, Gary 
Burdick, and Erin Sutton are 
each more or less involved in it 
with me. So are scientists in 
Brussels, Belgium and Heifei, 
People's Republic of China. It 
is so interesting that, when the 
time for a scientific idea comes, 
you find involved people com- 
ing "out of the woodwork." 
(That's different from saying 
"off the wall," isn't it?) 

Our family has rented a pic- 
turesque old house four miles 
up University Avenue, across 
from the Botanical Garden. We 
have had visits from Gary Bur- 
dick and Jim Eldridge. 

We had some three inches of 
snow on September 25 and 
again a day or so later. Now it 
has warmed up again. The 
snow-capped Rocky Mountains 
are so beautiful, as we see then, 
just west of Denver. 

Faculty and students at SC 
can be very happy with their 
ready access to computers, with 
the instant services of the 
Records Office, and with the 
quality of the instructional pro- 
gram. SC is not inferior to the 
University of Denver in such 
areas. May God be with all of 
you during this 1984-85 
academic year.

Ever since its inception on 
the Southern College campus, 
the Secret Sister Program, 
which was originated several 
years ago by Sigma Theta Chi 
(Women's Club), has been a re- 
sounding success. 

Evidence of its success can be 
found throughout "the campus. 
Walking slowly down the 
hallway in Talge Hall from the 
lobby with a container of ice 
cream from Baskin Robbins, 
Jon Marcum exclaimed with 
excitement, "Secret Sisters are 
really great!" Passersby in 
Talge lobby can perceive the 
aura of enchantment in the 
gentlemen who anxiously paw 
through the box labeled, 
"From Secret Sisters." Expres- 
sions such as, "This is great," 
"Wow, I got a letter from 
"Smiley"; can you believe it?" 
and "This girl is on the ball!" 
can readily be heard. 

Many women have similar 
reactions. Several of the women 

had remarks similar to the 
following: "Sounds pretty 
good. I like having a secret 
brother even though I think 
mine already knows who I 
am." Sheila Elwin said, "it j s 
excellent. It has helped me to 
get to know some people that I 
never would have gotten a 
chance to meet." Diana Green 
exclaimed, "It's fun. It makes 
life interesting!" 

Despite the overall success, 
however, some women have 
been disappointed because their 
brothers have not written to 
them. Either these men have yet 
to realize the fun the Secret 
Sister Program can be or they 
beUeve that they are too busy 
for the program. Consequent- 
ly, it has been suggested that 
these individuals at least write 
" a letter to their respective sisters 
with the reason they wish ( 
discontinue writing. This deed 
will guarantee that all parties 
will be partially satisfied.

The Charley Gordon Syndrome 


David Smith 

Growing up as a twin often 
frustrated me. Much as I 
wanted to be myself, others 
wouldn't allow me my own 
I identity. The members of the 
church in the town where I grew 
[ up often referred to my twin 
: as "those cute Smith 
Iboys." Now what young, active 
boy wants to be described as 
"cute"? I would rather they 
would have called us "little 
bevils" or any other more ap- 
propriate phrase. What injured 
fay young sensitive ego the 
Iiost, however, was when so- 
neone would walk up to and 
[variably ask, "Now, which 
! you?" It seemed to me 
lever had a name; I was 
limply "one of the twins," and 
my immature mind that 
yiewpoint seemed to be my 
predestined identity for life. 

I grew up experiencing the 
benefits and the deficits which 
i dual identity can offer one. I 
well remember one time when 
brother and I had 
nisbehaved during camp- 
neeting one summer, and my 
grandmother took it upon 
herself to discipline us. She 
went into the tent we were stay- 
and composed herself 
s Ellen White counsels 
parents to do before disciplin- 
rig their children. Once she was 
[ under control, she invited my 
I brother into the tent. He 
I relunctantly accepted her in- 
I vitat ion and received what I am 
I sure was his just due. When he 
I emerged from the tent, the two 
I of us stood there weeping and 
■"consoling one another. Grand- 
I mother retreated to the tent to 

again compose herself before 
dealing with me. When she 
finally came out of the tent, she 
grabbed by poor brother and 
started yanking him into the 
tent again. He protested rather 
vehemently: "But Grand- 
mother, you already spanked 
me!" Her reply brought him lit- 
tle comfort, though it did lift 
my spirits some: "Now, David, 
it won't do you any good to 
he." She promptly pulled his 
struggling little body into the 
tent and spanked him again. By 
the time she discovered her 
mistake, she found it impossi- 
ble to collect herself, and, con- 
sequently, I never did receive 
that spanking. Now I'm sure 
that my dear brother deserved 
a double spanking, though I 
can't remember what he did, 
but it did trouble me greatly 
that my own grandmother 
didn't seem to know who I was. 
One doesn't have to be a twin 
to experience an identity crisis. 
In fact, college students are par- 
ticularly vulnerable to a par- 
ticular type of identity conflict, 
one which I like to call the 
Charley Gordon Syndrome. 
Charley Gordon is the pro- 
tagonist in the film "Charley." 
In this fictional plot, Charley, 
whose IQ is extremely low, is 
used by a group of ambitious 
scientists as the prime guinea 
pig in an experiment designed 
to test the possibility of ar- 
tificially improving human in- 
telligence. After surgery tiggers 
major changes in Charley's 
mental capabilities, he 
undergoes a period of 
traumatic intellectual growth. 

His mental growth rate pro- 
gresses much more rapidly than 
his emotional and social 
development. As a result, 
Charley has changed so rapid- 
ly, and his head is so cluttered 
with new information that he 
cannot successfully understand 

This identity conflict 
becomes the focus during the 
film's climax. In this scene, 
Charley is interviewed by the 
world's leading scientists. These 
scientists ask Charley many dif- 
ferent questions designed to test 
the depth of his newly acquired 
intelligence. His accurate but 
flippant responses quickly con- 
vince them of his superior 
knowledge. But Charley, 
frustrated with what he 
perceives as the shallowness of 
these scientists 1 own 
knowledge, asks them a ques- 
tion, a question which neither 
he nor they can answer. His 
question is this: "What is the 
answer to the question-Charley 
Gordon?" Charley's life has 
become one big question mark, 
and he pathetically reaches out 
to the great minds assembled in 
that room and asks for an ex- 
planation of who or what he is. 



Charley, as a result of the 
surgery and of the accelerated 
intellectual growth which he has 
experienced, no longer has a 
clear identity. He has learned 
too much, too fast, and he 
hasn't had the time he needed 
to keep up with himself. 

Certainly many college 
students are subject to this same 
syndrome. They experience all

the horrors of pressured learn- 
ing during their college careers. 
They spend anywhere from two 
to five years continually cram- 
ming knowledge into their 
brains, and they seldom have 
time to keep up with themselves 
emotionally or spiritually. Stu- 
dying, eating, attending classes, 
working, and, occasionally, 
sleeping, form the deadly 
routine many college students 
find themselves trapped in. This 
routine threatens to convert 
each of them into a very large 
question mark. They walk 
about their various campuses 
wondering "What is the answer 
to the question-(their name)?" 

I'm thankful that an answer 
to that question can be found 
in God's Word. The disciples' 
experience with Christ amply il- 
lustrates how an answer can be 
found to this question. As 
Christ prepared to carry out 
His earthly ministry, He chose 
disciples to help Him, and He 
trained them so they could 
carry on His work after He was 
gone. Sines He had only three 
years to accomplish His mission 
and to educate these men con- 
cerning His own identity and 
His special task, He continual- 
ly exposed the disciples to a 
pressured learning environ- 
ment. How puzzled the 
disciples were as they watched 
their Master perform miracles, 
as they heard his strange say- 
ings, as they observed his 
challenge to the established 
customs of their people. Their 
days were filled with new ideas 
and experiences, and they 
couldn't seem to keep up with 
their Teacher, much less to 
keep up with themselves. 

The quizzes Christ gave His 
students challenged them, but 
more importantly, they helped 
the disciples better learn about 
Christ and about themselves. 
Two key quiz questions Christ 
posed to His disciples are found 
in Matthew 16: 13-15. The first 
question is, "Who do men say 
that the Son of man is?" The 
follow up question asked: "But 
who do you say that I am?" I 
find it significant that Christ 
found it more important that 
His students understand who 
they were. It is apparent from 
reading the Gospels that Christ 
understood his disciples much 
better than they understood 
themselves. Christ's prediction 
of Peter's denial is one classic 
example of this. Yet His 
greatest concern was that they 
understand, not themselves, but 
Him. The reason why this was 
so is simple yet beautiful. Christ 
knew that only by merging their 
human identities with His 

divine one, only by denying self 
and following Him, would 
these men be able to carry on 
His work. Only then would 
they be able to understand 
themselves. Christ was as much 
as saying to them, "If you can 
understand who I am, if you 
can lose your life for my sake, 
then you will not only find Me, 
but you will find yourself as 
well. The most important ques- 
tion Christ ever asked His 
disciples was: "What is the 
answer to the question-Jesus 
Christ?" The disciples quest to 
answer that question resulted in 
the merging of their identities 
with Christ's; it enabled them 
to enjoy all the benefits of a 
dual identity with God Himself. 
This dual identity enabled these 
humble men to turn "the world 
upside down" (Acts 17:6). 

Are you a big question mark 
walking around the campus of 
Southern College? Do you feel 
overwhelmed by the pressured 
learning environment which 
you are daily exposed to? Do 
you feel as though you are pass- 
ing yourself up, as though you 
don't have time to "find 
yourself"? Then take the time 
to answer the question-Jesus 
Christ. Lose yourself for His 
sake, and find Him. If you will 
do this, then you will discover 
that the world is no longer tur- 
ning you upside down, but, 
thanks to your new understan- 
ding of your Lord, and of 
yourself, you will be turning the 
world upside down. And the 
dual identity which you will 
gain from this experience will 
enhance your life in ways you 
never dreamed of and will of- 
fer you eternal joys and per- 
sonal peace.

A QOU.T1I Good NofcUor. 

40 Years Ago. 

Joanne Scungio To Lead 
Nursing Workshop 


Maude Jones Hall Dedicated 

Miss Maude Jones was 
signally honored at a simple 
ceremony on the steps of the 
young ladies' home on Satur- 
day, September 29, when the 
girls' dormitory was officially 
renamed Maude Jones Hall. 
Elder T. K. Ludgate, chairman 
of arrangements, presided at 
the short service, and President 
K. A. Wright offered the 
dedicatory prayer. As Con- 
ference President, ELder E. F. 
Hackman expressed the com- 
pliments of the Union. A poem 
for this special occasion ws 
presented by Miss Margarita 

Literally hundreds of 
students who have attended 
Southern Missionary College, 
some of them now serving in 
foreign mission stations, will 
remember Miss Jones as she 
stood before them in her 
classroom. To them, her 
response to the remarks of 
Elders Hackman and Ludgate 
will have a familiar ring. 

"This little ceremony has 
brought to me the realization of 
one of life's greatest longings-- 
the desire to find an individual 
whose affection was deeply 
enough rooted to cause forget- 
fulp.Oss of the homeliness of my 
name, and to produce a will- 
ingness to bestow, at least, part 
of it upon some .unsuspecting 
helpless infant. 

"There may have been a few 
promises along the way, but no 
fulfillments, and ever 1 have 
had to comfort myself with the 
thought that genuine altruism 
would forbid grief over the 
failure of either friends or 
relatives to place upon a child 
the name of an identification 
tag that I had always secretly 

"Imagine then, my utter 
amazement when confronted 
with the suggestion that the 
girls' home, the very walls of 
which are filled with sacred 
memories of a twenty-one year 
sojourn there was to be given, 
not part, but all of my 
•place, insignificant 

"And so my yearning has 
come true in a larger measure 
than I could ever have 
dreamed. Formerly, I had 
hoped for the calling of a sim- 
ple child after me; now, I am 
experiencing the joy of seeing 
my name emblazoned upon the 
brow of a mother whose 
sheltering arms are destined to 
enfold hundreds, yea 
thousands, rather than one. 

"First of all to my heavenly 
Father, and then to the 
members of our board, to you 
Elder Hackman, president of 
our Union, to you Elder 
Wright, president of our 
Southern Missionary College, 

to you friends assembled here, 
and to those I know throughout 
the Southland, I extend sincere 
appreciation and warmest 
gratitude for this signal honor. 
Not even the sense of my own 
unworthiness can dim the 
gladness of this honor. 

"Because for years, many 
and blessed, my very existence 
has been bound up in the life of 
this school-its sunshine and 
shadow, its successes and 
sorrows--I could wish for no 
more fitting climax to this ex- 
tended period of loving service 
than the assurance that I shall 
still have a place in its thoughts, 
even when I shall have ceased 
to pass in and out among its 
busy activities as in the golden 
long ago. 

"From the depths of a heart 
flooded with greatful memories 
of twenty-eight unforgettable 
years, I thank you each and 
every one, and pray that our 
association begun in this college 
planted by God's own hand in 
the midst of the beautiful 
valley, may reach its perfect 
fruition in that eternal school of 
the hereafter where there will be 
no more growing old, no more 
perlexities, no more doubts, no 
more failures, but instead, 
endless youth, sweet peace, ever 
increasing faith, and a ceaseless 
passage from glory to glory."

SC Delegation Attends Bible Conference 

Brent Van Arsdell & JT Shim 
Forty eight Southern College 
students attended the Inler- 
Collegiate Bible Conference 
GCBC) at Camp Yorktown Bay 
near Hot Springs, Arkansas. 
ICBC is a get together for 
spiritual growth for Southern 
College, Union College, and 
Southwestern Adventist Col- 
lege. This meeting was the 
fourth annual and largest ICBC 
and was coordinated this year 
by SAC. 

The SC group left Col- 
legedale Wednesday night in a 
van and on the touring bus for 
the all-night drive to camp. 
After a brief separation of van 
and bus, a stop for breakfast at 
McDonald's, and a walk 
around Hot Springs, the group 
rolled into Camp Yorktown 
Bay half a day later. 

Since SC had arrived first 
they had the entire camp to 
themselves for swimming, sun- 
bathing, water skiing, jet ski- 
ing, sailing, horseback riding, 
and relaxing until a combined 
lunch/supper was served late 
afternoon. The SAC delegation 
arrived about six. 
That evening the two schools 

participated in an event known 
as an "Ice Breaker" designed 
for the delegates to get to know 
each other. College students en- 
thusiastically indulged in some 
of the most ridiculous activities, 
which contributed to a sense of 
unity. The UC group showed 
up about five hours later 
because of bus trouble. 

Friday dawned rainy and 
grey. Several SC students 
remarked that it made them feel 
at home: "Just like back in 
Collegedale." The rain con- 
tinued on and off all day, but 
mostly on. Umbrellas had not 
been on the list of things to 
bring, but a few students had 
the foresight and common 
sense to bring one. 

Two study sessions began 
simultaneously at 9:30 a.m. 
Gary Swanson, associate editor 
of Listen Magazine, spoke on 
peer pressure. One of his 
demonstrations was to have 
five people selected apparently 
at random to respond to some 
questions. On the third ques- 
tion the first four individuals in 
the lineup had been previously 
instructed to give the obvious- 

ly wrong answer. The last in- 
dividual was expected to go 
along with the crowd. Vonda 
Clark, a student here, did not. 
"This was the first time that 
this has happened," Swanson 

Dr. Norman Gulley, pro- 
fessor of religion at Southern 
College, spoke on eschatology. 
With the help of his overhead 
projector and screen, he ex- 
pounded on last day events. At 
1 1 :00 the two groups switched 

The afternoon was free time, 
with the hardier souls skiing, 
canoeing, jet skiing, and riding 
horses in the rain. Fortunately 
the water was warm, and most 
people enjoyed themselves in 
spite of the weather. 

SC had vespers. Bob 
Folkenberg and John Dysinger 
led out in song service. Ron 
Whitehead, camp director, in- 
cluded in his remarks the sug- 
gestion that Folkenberg take up 
music as a major in addition to 
his theology. Elder Jim Her- 
man spoke.

Religion Dept. Gets Own Home 

Lori Heinsman 

The Division of Religion will 
finally have a place to call its 
own when Miller Hall is 
transformed into the Religion 
Center and renamed Sojuco- 
nian Hall. Renovation, per- 
formed primarily by the 
Southern College Engineering 
Department, is projected to be 
finished by August, 1985. 

The name "Sojuconian" 
refers to the alumni of 
Southern Junior College (SJC). 
SJC was the name given to the 
college before it became 
Southern Missionary College. 
Religion Chairman, Dr. Gor- 
don Hyde, describes the So- 
juconiansas "some of the most 
generous supporters of S.C. in 
all of its endeavors-an extreme- 
ly loyal and generous alumni 
group." Their generosity is 
shown through the $150,000 
they have donated to refurbish 
Miller Hall. 

Renovations will include 
completely new roof, central 

heating and air conditioning, 
changing practice rooms and 
music studios into spacious of- 
fices and classrooms, 
redecorated restrooms, and 
new lighting. A baptistry will be 
installed in the chapel. 

Miller Hall was dedicated 
February 10, 1954, to Howard 
A. Miller, SJC music teacher 
for 15 years. Professor Miller is 
known for his songs in the 
Church Hymnal and Gospel 

The dedication for Sojuco- 
nian Hall is part of Alumni 
Homecoming's Founder's Day 
program, Friday, November 2. 
A tree, brought from the old 
Graysville campus, will be 
planted as part of the dedica- 
tion. A fountain is scheduled to 
be built out of stones brought 
from Graysville. The chapel 
will be dedicated to Robert H. 
Pierson, General Conference 
President from 1966 to 1979 
and graduate of SJC, 

Music in the Mountains Series 
in Colorado. The Quartet is in 
residence as artist-faculty at the 
Blair School of Music at 
Vanderbilt University in 
Nashville, Tennessee. 

Characterized by the 
Washington Post as exhibiting 
"exquisite balance, perfect in- 
tonation, and exemplary musi- 
cianship," the Quartet plans to 
play works by Haydn, Bartok, 
and Debussy. Not limiting their 
repertoire to classics from past 
eras, the group has also 
premiered new works by several 
composers, including Frank 
Proto and Samuel Rhodes. 
Their albums are available on 
Redmark, Orpheus, Varese- 
Sarabande, and Grenadilla

Duarte and Rebels Talk 

El Salvador president, Jose Napoleon Duarte, sat down with 
rebel leaders on Monday to talk about ending the war in that coun- 
try. Each side gave its proposals and demands for peace and then \^B 
agreed to meet again in November. The meetng was a historic 
first after five years of bloodshed, in which 59,000 people have 
been killed. 

Possible Solar System Found 

Scientists, convinced that they have found a new solar system, 
released a photograph Monday of what may be a young system 
293 trillion miles away from Earth. The photograph shows a 
swarm of particles surrounding the star Beta Pictoris. Two faint 
streaks of light surround the star and extend 40 billion miles. Ac- 
cording to the scientists, the particles most likely are made up of 
ices, sillicats, and organic compounds. 

Nobel Prizes Awarded 

Two of the Nobel Prizes have been awarded so far: literature 
and medicine. Last week Czechaslovakian poet Jaroslar Seifert 
was awareded the Nobel Prize in literature. Earlier this week, three 
medical researchers won the coveted award in medicine. Niels Kaj 
Jeme, a Dane; Georges Koehler, a West German; and Cesar Mils- 
tein, an Argentine, shared the prize for their pioneering work in 
immunology. The three deciphered how the body's defenses 
against disease work and how to manipulate them to fight disease. 
Their discoveries are now being used in research in immunology. 

Supreme Court Decides Religion Question 

Adding to its already full agenda, the Supreme Court said Mon- 
day that it will decide whether a community may be forced to pro- 
vide public land for the annual display of a Christmas Nativity 
scene. The court will use a Scarsdale, N.Y., case to determine 
whether prohibiting displays of Christ's birth from public pro- 
perty on which other displays are allowed is a violation of free- 
speech rights. The community had permitted the display until local 
Jews began to protest, prompting area Christians to sue. The 
Supreme Court probably will not decide the case until sometime 
in 1985. 

Panel ask Amtrak to Study Route 

A legislative commmittee agreed Monday to join U.S. Rep. 
Albert Gore, Jr., in asking Amtrak to study the costs of return- 
ing rail passenger service to Middle and East Tennessee. The pro- 
posed route would stop in Nashville, Chattanooga, and Atlanta. 
The argument against the route is that the line would mot pay 
for itself, thus needing state subsidy.

Men's Club Sponsors Cruise 

Cindy Watson 

Whether out of curiosity or 
anticipation, your're probably 
wondering what the men's club 
n store in sponsoring the 
Autumn boat cruise. The even- 
ing begins 7:30 Monday night 
at Ross Landing where the 
boat, Mark Twain, will be 
waiting. The 3 to 4 hour cruise 
consists of going up and down 
the Tennessee River. 

Donuts, hot chocolate, bur- 
ritoes and other Mexican food 
will be served buffet style. Mr. 
Earl Evans, Director of Food 
Services at Southern, and the 
cafeteria staff will be catering 
;he meal. 

After the meal, the excite- 
ment will be watching the boat 
go through the locks, the city 
lights, and... Of course, as 
Dean Christman puts it, "this 
is official PDA night-the one 
occasion at Southern where 

DA is allowed and 


As for those going as just 
;ausal dates, have no fear, 
"ausal is what the evenings all 
about. Even blue jeans are ac- 
ceptable. It's a Mississippi style 

boat ride, but not like in the an- 
tibellum days where everybody 
dresses up. "It's too cold to be 
dressed up," says Christman. 

Live entertainment will con- 
clude the evening. Although 
plans had not been finalized 
Tuseday as to who the enter- 
tainer would be, Christman 
said the style would be popular 
romantic music and would last 
around an hour. 

The thirty dollar per-couple 
tickets were on sale October 15 
& 16. This is 10 dollars more 
than last year. "The company 
we've rented from in the past 
went bankrupt" explains 
Christman. "It's costing us 
twice as much for the same 
length of ride." As of Monday 
night, 50 percent of the tickets 
were sold and 20 percent were 
bought by girls. The cost of the 
ticket includes transportation. 
Unlike last year, this will be a 
one night event. 

"It's one of the highlights of 
the school year because the ex- 
perience is so unique-a time 
when people can let their hair 
down and enjoy themselves," 
says Christman. 

Adventists Send 1,101 

Washington (Oct. 10)-The 
Seventh-day Adventist Church 
;ent out 1,101 missionaries in 
.983, according to G. Ralph 
Thompson, secretary of the 
General Conference of 
Jeventh-day Adventists in his 
eport to the denomination's 
1984 Annual Council. 

Of the 655 departures for 

:egular mission service, 286 

were new missionaries and 369 

were those returning to 

■assignments after furlough. An 

Additional 446 volunteer 

■workers brought the total to 

1,101, Thompson said. 

The 655 regular missionaries 
Jasically are church workers 
who go from their home coun- 
ry to another country, Thomp- 
ion explained. Of that number 
411 missionaries (62.7 percent) 
went from the United States 
and Canada to other parts of 
he world. Other missionaries 
were sent from the Far East, 
Africa, Australia and the South 
Pacific, Europe, Central and 
South America, and the Middle 

Calls for missionaries con- 
tinue to come," Thompson 
added. "As of September 10, 
1984, we had a total of 198 calls 
or regular missionaries- 54 for 
Physicians, 34 for facul- 
ty/teachers, 16 for nurses, 14 
for departmental, 13 for ad- 
ministrative and the remaining 
variety of categories in- 

cluding other health-related oc- 
cupations and publishing." 

Thompson said the church 
has an additional 149 requests 
for volunteer workers in a 
variety of categories. 

The Seventh-day Adventist 
Institute of World Mission at 
Andrews University in 
Michigan "continues to make 
its mark. . .in preparing mission 
appointees for 'cross-cultural' 
service," Thompson said. "It is 
fascinating to see how a group 
of mission appointees at each 
session arrives as a diverse, 
non-oriented set of individuals 
and leave a homogeneous 
group in just a short time." 

The Institute of World Mis- 
sion reviews the mission of the 
church and the role of mis- 
sionaries in the fulfillment of 
that mission, acquaints newly 
appointed missionaries with the 
conditions and problems they 
will meet in the field, prepares 
them to relate to diverse pro- 
blems in a tactful and Christian 
manner, discusses current issues 
in missions and explains the 
policies and procedures under 
which missionaries work. 

In a brief report on member- 
ship, Thompson said that in the 
year ending June 30, 1984, the 
church had a net increase of 
255,517 to a world total of 

The Annual Council and 
related meetings 
through October 18.

Broomshop Gets New Home 

The Nerds Are Back! 

Fall Festival in Full Swing 

Ron Aguilera 

A decision was recently made 
o build a new broomshop 
building at the mobile home 
park near the Student Park. 
This decision was passed in the 
September Southern College 
Board Meeting, and the con- 
struction will probably begin in 
the spring. 

The building which now 
holds the Supreme Broom 
Company is under lease from 
McKee Bakery. This lease runs 
out in a year and a half, and 
McKee Bakery will be moving 
into the building then. This ac- 
tion presents the need for a new 
home for the Supreme Broom 

Southern College owns ten 
;cres of land which is now be- 
ing used as the mobile home 
park. Recently, there has been 
i decline in the popularity of 
living in trailers, leaving many 
open spaces at the mobile home 
park. The college, therefore, 
plans to change a section into 

1 industrial area, constructing 
building to house the 
Supreme Broom Company. 

Once completely moved into 
the new building, the Supreme 
Broom Company will have 20 
percent more space than it cur- 
rently has. The added space is 
important because it should in- 
crease the income potential of 
the broom shop. 

An interesting note is that by 
the time the new broom shop 
begins functioning, the college 
will have spent around half a 
million dollars on its construc- 
tion. This amount will be paid 
by the Supreme Broom Com- 
pany, however, and not student 

The college's involvement in 
the company's move is pro- 
mpted by the fact that Southern 
College owns it. In April of this 
year, the Supreme Broom 
Company was purchased by 
SC. This move was done main- 
ly to provide students with 
another source of employment. 
The college is very pleased right 
now to have over 50 students 
employed there and hope to in- 
crease the number as well as the 
student income after the com- 
pletion of the new building. 

The history of the broom 
shop is an interesting one. A 
certain Mr. Schroeder from 
Kentucky wanted his son, Bill, 
to have a Christian education. 
But money was scarce and the 
work that Bill did best was not 
one of the industries at the col- 
lege. So Bill came to college 
with some old type broom 
presses, winders, and chop- 
pers-all operated by hand- 
along with a wagon full of 
broom corn. His father had 
told him that if he made enough 

brooms to pay his expenses, the 
college would help him sell 
them. Bill probably never 
realized that he would start one 
of the college's most productive 
industries. The first broom 
shop was started in 1924 and 
has become not only one of the 
oldest industries on campus but 
also one of the most profitable.

Throughout the years one of 
the biggest events on campus 
has been the Fall Festival, and 
the one planned for this year 
will rival those in year's past. 
Already we've seen the scruffy 
look with T-shirts, sweats, 
scrubs, and torn blue jeans. For 
most people it was a real "com- 
fortable" day. Now we are in 

CABL Week Leaves Students "Healthier and Wiser" 

Norman Hobbs 

CABL Week was a great suc- 
cess. Collegiate Adventists for 
Better Living (CABL) is a pro- 
gram which emphasizes good 
health and is sponsored by 
Campus Ministry. Assistant 
Chaplain Dale Tunnell was 
happy with the results: "I 
believe that we have achieved 
our goal because people are 
talking about health." Many 
students feel "more aware than 
ever" about their health and are 
thankful for a week to become 
more conscientious about bet- 
ter living. Troy Rockwell says 
that CABL Week was great: "I 
never knew it existed until this 
year." CABL director Don 
Welch felt that the week was an 
awesome success and hopes 
that everyone benefited from 
the programs." 

During the entire week, 

CABL Week began on Monday 
the 15th with a dental booth in 
the cafeteria. On Tuesday, in- 
formation about eye and body 
donation could be obtained 
from a booth in the Student 
Center. Also, a special movie 
on running was shown during 
Tuesday's chapel. Starting on 
Tuesday and continuing 
through Friday, Wildwood 
Sanitarium and Hospital shared 
information, took blood 
pressures, and gave health age 
and longevity appraisals in the 
Student Center. The health age 
appraisal stated one's health 
age based on current health 
habits and his achievable age if 
he adopted stated health recom- 
mendations. The longevity ap- 
praisal expressed one's expected 
remaining years of life based on 
present health habits and his 

life if he followed the suggested 
health recommendations. 
Health recommendations in- 
cluded such things as eating 
regular meals, avoiding snack- 
ing, losing or gaining weight, 
getting plenty of rest, and get- 
ting lots of exercise. Wildwood 
gave appraisals to nearly 600 

On Wednesday, skin fold fat 
tests and blood pressures were 
taken in the cafeteria. That 
evening Dave Silas, medical 
director at Mountainview 
Hospital, spoke at Wednesday 
night's prayer meeting. 

On Thursday, a group from 
Metropolitan Hospital checked 
107 people for diabetes, and the 
eyes and ears van, which check- 
ed persons' hearing, reported 
around 100 hearing tests. 
CABL Week's last feature was 

the process of experiencing 
NERDS." If an unsuspecting 
visitor happened to wander on 
campus, he would probably 
beat a hasty retreat away from 
a studious look of briefcases, 
polyester, mix-matched clashes, 
crazy outfits, and a chronic 
habit of nose picking. If we 
could persuade this visitor to 
stay until evening, he would be 
greatly relieved to find a bit 
more "normal" look of 
western duds, hats, boots, and 
flannel shirts-Hee Haw style. 
A picnic at 5:30 p.m. between 
Hackman Hall and the Student 
Center will complete the coun- 
try atmosphere with 
chuckwagon grub and some 
knee-slapping, banjo-picking, 
country-western music. 

There will be a quick shift 
from rural to urban by Friday 
morning, though. The at- 
mosphere will definitely be 
sophisticated when those in 
high society make their debut 
appearance, dressed in 
elegance-from tuxedos and 
formals to super preppy to the 
"night out on the town look." 
In keeping with all this class, 
there will be a croissant break 
at 10:00 a.m. and a secret sur- 
prise around noon. Don't 
forget to get your ' 'look" 
recorded forever during the pic- 
ture session on the steps of 
Lynn Wood Hall at 12:30 

The best part of the week will 
be Sunday night. At Fillman's 

Continued on page 2 

speaker Dr. Richard Ruhling, 
private physician and health 
lecturer from Chattanooga. Dr. 
Ruhling talked about "Being 
Where the Action Is." The 
steps he suggested were to 
guard our heritage by honoring 
God in all we do and by form- 
ing good habits, to gird our 
minds by aiming high and by 
feeding our minds only pure 
things, and to go for a "gold" 
character. Thus, the key to suc- 
cess is to aim high because we 
become what we think. Dr. 
Ruhling shared facts that pro- 
ved that if we follow the health 
suggestions of Ellen G. White, 
we will be where the action is. 
Thanks to CABL Week our 
campus has learned helpful 
hints that we can now practice 
as Collegiate Adventists for 
Better Living.

Thank You 


Joint I want to bring out is that the "thank you has been weU 
received. Perhaps, there are other people around you who also 
gladly would welcome a word of praise. 

A college campus setting almost forces individuals to interact. 
This mingling takes place in many forms: employer ^employee 
working togetter, roommates living with each <***££* 
dying with a tutor, and friends eating at the same ta We. Jhe : Utt 
goes on and on. Yet one wonders what a simple thank you 
or compliment would do for one of these people if the words were 
expressed. 1 would venture to say that the person who recedes 
'he compliment or thank you would feel like our staff does each 
time it receives a compliment-uplifted. 

Very few people can live a normal life without being recogmzeo. 
In fact, to be recognized is a human need. If one were to think 
about how he felt after being complimented in the past, he would 
see that there is a need for commendation, especially on a college 
campus. For example, it is easier for an individual to work for 
an employer if he knows that his work will be acknowledged. An 
employer who never thanks his workers for their work, most likely 
has a staff of disgruntled individuals. In contrast, an employer 
who notices his staff's good work and lets them know about it, 
most likely will have a happy staff (not considering all aspects 
of job satisfaction, of course). In fact, the compliment will buoy 
the individuals to try and accomplish greater feats. 

The need for commendations and "thank you's" on this cam- 
pus is even higher. As fellow Christians trying to live proper lives, 
knowing that we are being recognized encourages us to continue 
living and working on a higher level of achievement. Given the 
difficulty of living a Christian life (and of going to college) the 
act of complimenting should be encouraged. Commending so- 
meone is free, and the words can only help and not hinder.

Fall Festival. . . 

Barn near SC there will be a 
bam party, with the SA pro-

fire for roasting marshmallows. 
There will also be a costume 
contest with cash prizes: $10 for 
3rd, $15 for 2nd, and $25 for 
1st prize in each category. The 
grand prize of $50 will go to 
either a 1st prize winner or an 
individual winner. The four

A proposed road from Col- 
legedale north to the interstate 
is still in the planning stages, 
says Collegedale City Manager 
Lee Holland. "The only thing 
that has been done about this 
road is that Hamilton County 
has had a engineering study 
done surveying possible 
routes." The new road would 
give Collegedale better access to 
1-75 than the Ooltewah- 
Ringgold Road route, but cur- 
rently the new route is not even 
"remotely finalized," said 

The road is needed because 
of the large amount of truck 
traffic from McKee Bakery and 
other sWppers. The trucks are 
not able to use Ooltewah- 

Ringgold Road because its 1 0VI 
underpass and small wy,), 
make it unsuitable for heavy 
trucks. Collegedale Mayor 
Wayne VandeVere said that 
some of the push for a better ' 
road came last spring after 
several accidents on Apisoj 
Pike. The road would also 
benefit the planned industrial 
park in Ooltewah, he said. 

If the road is built, the agen- 
cy in charge will be Hamilton 
County. The money will come 
from wherever funds can be oh- 
tained. Federal grants v, 
definitely be sought, howevu. 
State, county, and local revenue 
will finance the remainder of 
the cost. 

Teachers Salaries Increasing

Teaching salaries are on the 
rise, but statistics disagree on 
the amount of the increase. 

According to the American 
Federation of Teachers, a 
500,000-member union, last 
year's earnings increased 8.5 
percent to an average $20,547. 
In terms of buying power, 
however, that's 10.6 percent 
smaller than 10 years ago. 

Another survey of 2,100 full- 
time faculty members by John 
Minter Associates, a research 
firm in Boulder, Colo., 
reported a 7.6 percent increase 
average $28,040 salary 

The surveys agree, however, 
that the increase means salaries 
increased more than inflation 
for the second straight year. 

The AFT figures show the 
highest average salaries in 
($32,297) and the lowest in 
Mississippi ($14,320). 

Projections by the U. S. 
Bureau, of Labor Statistics in- 
dicate less demand through 
1995 for college and high 
school teachers, more for 
vocational-educational teachers 
and more for pre-education , 
kindergarten and elementary- 
school teachers.

The Idea of an Education 

Jan Haiuska 

College, like love, is 
sometimes better the second 
time around. At least that's 
how it was for me as a student. 
During my first try I was chief- 
ly interested in easy classes and 
cool friends (this was 1959), 
and a C- was just dandy, thank 
you. Maybe that had something 
to do with how the experience 

I remember my last talk with 
the academic dean as he gently 
explained that, having averaged 
just below a two-point for a 
couple of semesters, I was 
welcome to try elsewhere. That 
conversation was my door to 
adulthood. The army and a few 
years in the business world 
completed the transition. Then, 
just as I had become used to the 
idea that I would never go 
beyond a rudimentary educa- 
tion, Christ intervened, and I 
found myself back at college. 

But what a difference there 
was this time. A walk around 
Pacific Union College the day 
before registration was like 
Moses' sight of the burning 
bush. Although I had spent the 
last several years in San Fran- 
cisco's financial district, the 
buildings on that campus look- 

ed far more impressive than any 
I had seen in a long time. They 
were full of people whose lives 
were dedicated-the wonder of 
it-to giving out information to 
make others more successful. I 
visualized members of the 
physics or business departments 
trading away high-paying jobs 
for privilege and burden of 
teaching. (It's true enough. My 
friend Richard Ericson has 
done that here this semester.) 

Then I saw that civilization 
rests on a far different base 
than is generally supposed. Not 
the wheel. Oh no. At the center 
of the civilized world stands a 
school. The ancient Mayans 
maintained a high culture 
without any wheels at all. 
Schools, they had. 

But even the second time 
around did not show me all of 
it at once. That first day I ac- 
tually missed two thirds of the 

Only later did I begin to 
notice the vast difference be- 
tween training, important as it 
is, and what is called "liberal 
education." That difference is 
easier to illustrate than to 
define. Consider: according to 
a recent study, people with ex- 

clusively technical backgrounds 
often blossom early in com- 
panies like IBM, AT & T and 
Transamerica, picking up quick 
promotions ahead of their 
liberally-educated colleagues 
who have spent significant time 
studying people-related sub- 
jects, especially history, 
literature, languages, etc. But 
then a strange thing happens. 
The purely technical people 
tend to stop cold just below 
middle-management level, 
while their humanities-oriented 
peers slide by into the big 
salaries near the top of the 

How can that be? The 
answer is that anyone who 
wants to produce results 
through people had better 
understand his co-workers' 
nontechnical side. The 
humanities are still the best 
general education for that 
understanding. Liberally- 
educated students have a bright 
window into the collective right 
brain of mankind, giving them 
a clear advantage over anyone 
with an exclusively left-brain 
orientation. For that reason, 
higher education historically 
has tried to produce leaders by 

focusing hard on the 
humanities. Although technical 
and scientifdic coursework is 
essential to a good preparation 
for most fields today, potential 
leaders in all areas still need a 
liberal arts education. 

The third ingredient of a real 
education was honored for 
2,500 years before this century. 
Now though, it is mostly left 
out. From the schools of the 
prophets to those of Aristotle 
and Plato, the great scholarly 
tradition has emphasized 
spiritual things. Graduates of 
Oxford and Cambridge (not to 
mention those of Harvard) 
were fitted for the ministry if 
they chose to enter it. Long, 
hard experience has shown that 
faith is the best way to bind the 
two halves of the brain 
together. Ignoring this more 
recently, the great universities 
of the world have tried to de- 
emphasize the spiritual and still 
produce leaders of mental and 
moral integrity. How well this 
kind of education has suc- 
ceeded is easy to judge; anyone 
can snap on his T.V. at random 
for a loud and clear answer. 
Just now these secular univer- 
sities are agonizing over how to 

teach "values," having exclud- 
ed their best answer already. It 
has been a bad experiment. 

I am thrilled to find so many 
students on this campus who 
are smarter than I was the first 
time around. They know that 
college must not be simply a 
social adventure with a little 
learning thrown in. But I 
wonder whether they under- 
stand clearly that higher educa- 
tion cannot just provide train- 
ing. Do they recognize that any 
educated person needs a strong 
background in the liberal arts 
along with any purely technical 
or scientific preparation? Do 
they see that the payoff is not 
simply in being a "well- 
rounded person," but in serious 
anticipation of leadership? Do 
they realize as well that this 
preparation is incomplete 
without the spiritual 

We here at Southern should 
not feel at all shy in the 
presence of huge and well- 
funded state institutions around 
us. By God's grace we offer 
education in the rare, true sense 
of the term, and under His mer- 
cy we shall continue to do so.

Sponsors Food Fair 

C. D. N. S. 

A recent report stated that in 
1980 Americans experienced 
19.1 average days of restricted 
activity, which refers to those 
days spent in bed or otherwise 
missing from work because of 
health reasons. 

The 19.1 average is one day 
more than in 1975--3.1 more 
than 1971. Based on 1980 

statistics, the report reflected 
interviews 103,000 people in 
39,000 households (sic). 

Money seems to make a dif- 
ference, as families with in- 
comes of $25,000 or more had 
the lowest rates of restricted ac- 
tivity, and those with income of 
under $5,000 had the highest 
rates of disability. That's an 

average of five days yearly of 
missed work. 

Blacks, with higher restricted 
activity rates , missed fewer 
school days than whites~4.1 

Surprisingly, people living on 
the sunny West Coast had three 
more days of restricted activity 
than the national average.

Are you hungry? Looking 
for something to break the 
routine of cafeteria fare or the 
"burger and fries" approach? 
If it is something exotic that ap- 
peals to you, then there is a 
good chance that the Student 
Mission Club's International 
Food Fair will be to your taste. 
For three years, the Food 
Fair has been an important 
aspect of both the public rela- 
tions effort and iTmd-raising 
campaign of the Student Mis- 
sions Club. The Fair features 
the traditional cuisine of 
foreign cultures, and most of 
the nations which have hosted 
student missionaries will be 
represented in this year's event. 
Some of the all-time favorite 
booths include Japan, Korea, 
Mexico, India, and the South 
Pacific Islands. In addition to 
these and other booths from 
last year, two new cultures will 
be introduced: the Ukraine and 
Dutch (the Dutch booth will be 
serving only drinks and ice 

The money raised by this 
endeavor will be placed in the 
"Student Missions Donation 
Fund," which will help defray 
the cost of transportation and 
medical procedures for student 
missionaries who need financial 
assistance. The Club would like 

to raise at least $2,000, which 
is not an unreasonable goal 
considering last year's profit of 
$1 ,800 (an increase of over 100' 
from the previous year). 

The Fair will be open from 
12:00 to 6:00 on Sunday, Oc- 
tober 28, in the gymnasium of 
Spaulding Elementary School. 
Arrangements will be made 
enabling students to charge 
food on their ID cards. So 
come out, bring a friend, and

world's food while supporting

Church and State: A 
Dangerous Mix 


Advised for 
2nd Semester 

Russell Duerksen 

1984 Democratic National 
Convention--The audience 
sways as SDA minister, Went- 
ly Phipps, sings at the conclu- 
sion of another minister's, Jesse 
Jackson, speech. ..1984 
Republican National 

Convention-There is a roar of 
applause as Jerry Falwell makes 
a short statement and then gives 
the benediction. Politics and 
religion: much has been said 
about them from square one of 
this campaign, as if this was the 
first time they had mixed in 
American history. I strongly 
dispute that point and propose 
the theory that politics and 
religion have always been 
mixed in American history (ex- 
amine the campaigns of 
Presidents Kennedy and Hayes, 
and Governor Al Smith of 
Wyoming), and what is now be- 
ing seen in this election is the 
beginning of the public's 
realization and acceptance of 
that fact. Having stated that 
premise, I look at today's 
church-state relationship in two 
different lights: that of a citizen 
and that of an Adventist. 

As a citizen, I find this in- 
volvement of religious 
organizations in politics of no 
great concern. The constitution 
gives to every group or in- 
dividual an equal right to try 
and influence the political pro- 
cess by expressing their view- 
points. This right extends to 
Jerry Falwell, Jesse Jackson, 
and the Catholic bishops, just 
as much as it extends to Lane 
Kirkland of the AFL-CIO, Jay 
Rockerfeller, and the local 
chamber of congress. This 
country is a democracy, and 
those that can assemble a con- 

sensus should be allowed to 

However, as an Adventist 
Christian, I see this issue in an 
entirely different and disturbing 
light. Granted, religious in- 
volvement has been present for 
a long time, but what concerns 
me is the shift of emphasis of 
this political involvement. It 
has shifted from moral and 
political issues, such as prohibi- 
tion, abolition, poverty, and 
issues of war and peace, to 
more overtly religious issues, 
such as abortion and prayer in 
schools. These issues are enter- 
ing directly into the gray area 
between church and state, and 
it is in this area that religious in- 
toleration and persecution 
begin. This emphasis, and not 
the fact that religious organiza- 
tions are involved in the 
political process, is the real item 
of concern. Unfortunately, it is 
probably here to stay, and thus 
we should learn to deal with it. 

In conclusion, the real 
discussion of the issue of 
religious involvement in 
politic's should be concerned 
not with the actual involve- 
ment, but with the direction this 
involvement is leading 
America. It is our duty both as 
Christians and citizens to 
evaluate the situation for what 
it is, and then to deal with it

A Guide to Academic Ad- 
visement, a 150-page book giv- 
ing suggested year-by-year 
schedules and career informa- 
tion for each of the majors of- 
fered at SC, has been publish- 
ed by the SC Records Office, 
just in time for the advisement 
period for second semester, 
which begins October 29. 

"Choosing a career and fin- 
ding a job after graduation will 
be easiest for those students 
who have a clearheaded view of 
opportunitites and problems 
ahead of them," according to 
Mary Eiam, Director of 
Reocrds. That is why she has 
compiled this information from 
the SC division chairmen and 
other authoritative sources such 
as the Occupational Outlook 
Handbook and the College 
Placement Council's Salary 

Career information listed for 
each major includes such items 
as job availability (including 
denominational opportunities), 
salary possibilities, and sources 
of additional information. 

General education re- 
quirements at SC are outlined 
in the first section of the book. 
This portion of the guide also 
includes detailed information 
on the placement of the 1984 
graduates, contributed by 
Evonne Crook of the Testing 
and Counseling Office. 

Included are such tidbits of 
information as the fact that the 
Bureau of Labor Statistics 
reports that a college graduate 
is three times less likely to be 
unemployed as a high school 
graduate. According to the 
U.S. Census Bureau, people 
who complete four years of col- 
lege can expect lifetime earnings 
averaging nearly 40 percent 
higher than high school 

Elam cautioned, however, 
that students should not select 
a career solely because it is 
presently in vogue or leads to 

high earnings. They should 
follow their own bent by selec- 
ting a profession or vocation 
that is compatible with their in- 
terests and talents. Even the 
most glutted fields will need 
replacements for those* who 

According to the October 10, 
1984, issue of The Chronicle of 
Higher Education, more 
students are seeking help from 
their colleges in planning their 
careers, but resources have not 
kept pace with the increased de- 
mand. It is the aim of Dr. 
William Allen, Academic Vice- 
President, to use the resources 
available at SC in the best 
possible way to improve the 
quality of academic advise- 
ment. He foresees that The 
Guide to Academic Advisement 
will become a yearly publica- 
tion and is pleased to announce 
that Dr. Carole Haynes, Direc- 
tor of the Teaching/Learning 
Center, has been appointed to 
take an increasingly active role 
in coordinating advisement. 

The amount of career infor- 
mation that can be given in this 
handbook is necessarily limited. 
It is designed to aid students in 
the selection of a major and of 
the courses needed to complete 
a major, but does not take the 
place of the official college 

As they outline their personal 
year-by-year schedules, 
students should study this guide 
and the SC catalog carefully 
and stay in close touch with 
their advisers. They can find 
more in-depth information on 
their chosen careers at the SC 
Testing and Counseling Center, 
the McKee Library, and by 
writing to the sources of infor- 
mation listed in the handbook. 

Copies of A Guide to 
Academic Advisement have 
been given to each academic ad- 
viser, are available for perusal 
at the dormitories, and are on 
reserve at the McKee Library. 

For the next two weeks, 
October 21 - November 9* 
Southern College will have its 
advisement period for Spring 
Semester. The time is set aside 
so that students can meet with 
their faculty advisers and plan 
their schedules for the second 
half of the school year. 

This pre-registration will cut 
down on the amount of time it 
will take to register on January 
7 (Registration Day). It also 
gives the records office an op- 
portunity to see what classes are 
the most popular and at what 
times. Thus if any conflicts 
arise, they may be able to cor- 
rect them before second 
semester begins. 

The process begins with the 
student looking over the new 
class schedule and getting an 
idea as to what classes are of- 
fered and when they are of- 
fered. Then after making an ap- 
pointment with his adviser, the 
two discuss a probable schedule 
and place it on a form that the 
adviser gives to the student. 

After this is completed, the 
student takes the schedule to 
the Reocrds Office in Wright 
Hall. The form is stamped with 
a number, and this number is 
what determines a student's 
time of registration. For this 
reason, Miss Elam, Director of 
Records, advises that it is to the 
student's advantage to see his 
adviser as soon as possible. 

Students who wish to change 
their program after having 
completed the pre-registration 
steps, may do so until 
November 15. After this date, 
he will have to wait till the ac- 
tual registration period. 

The fact that pre-registration 
is upon us so quickly shows 
how fast time can fly, so 
students are encouraged not to 
delay their advisement sessions.

Adventists to Vote on Ordination of Women 

The Seventh-day Adventist 
Church will vote on whether to 
ordain women to the gospel 
ministry at its General Con- 
ference Session in New Orleans, 
June 27-July 6, 1985. 

The church's 1984 Annual 
Council yesterday responded to 
i request of the church's Col- 
umbia Union Conference (area 
headquarters for the mid- 
Atlantic states) and the 
Potomac Conference (local 
headquarters for Virginia, the 
District of Columbia, and parts 
of Maryland) that it act to per- 
mit women serving as associates 
in pastoral care and who serve 
s local church elders to bap- 
that church policy be 
amended to permit granting of 
ministerial licenses to women 
and that the church consider 
| the ordination of qualified 
women to the gospel ministry. 

The Annual council asked 
the Potomac Conference "to 
keep tabled the issues of 
ministerial licenses for women 
and baptism by women. . .un- 
til the larger issue of women in 
the gospel ministry is decided 
by the Church" at its 1985 
General Conference Session. 
Such sessions meet every five 
years and are the ultimate 
authority on church doctrine 
and working policies. 

The Annual Council noted 
"that the issues raised by the 
Potomac Conference and Col- 
umbia Union cannot be resolv- 
ed without deciding the central 
women being eligible 
for ordination to the gospel 

The council voted a three- 

part program leading to the 
1985 consideration of ordina- 
tion of women: 

1. Each of the world divi- 
sions of the church is "asked to 
discuss the issues in preparation 
for a meeting of representatives 
from the world divisions" who 
will meet for four or five days 
beginning March 26, 1985. 

2. Representatives will in- 
clude at least two represen- 
tatives from each of the world 
divisions of the church. 

3. The report of the March 
meeting will be presented to the 
1985 Spring Meeting (April 3 
and 4, 1985) for recommenda- 
tions to the 1985 General Con- 
ference Session. 

In addition the church's 
Biblical Research Institute will 
send to all delegates to the 
General Conference Session "a 
balanced summary of the 
available theological positions 
in connection with this 

The Annual Council action 
stated that the "decision of the 
1985 General Conference Ses- 
sion will be definitive and 
should be accepted as such by 
the Church worldwide." 

General Conference Presi- 
dent Neal C. Wilson reviewed 
recent history concerning the 
pastoral roles of Adventist 

"It is clear scripture teaches 
equality of men and women," 
Wilson explained. "But we 
must face the question of 
whether that equality is one of 
both status and function." He 
pointed out that various church 

studies and actions of the last 
decade have urged continued 
study of the role of women in 
the church and have recogniz- 
ed the role of women in 
pastoral-evangelistic work with 
ministerial status. 

"The implication of what we 
have done over the last ten 
years is that a time might come 
to ordain women to the gospel 
ministry but that the church 
above all desires unity." 

C. E. Bradford, president of 
the church's North American 
Division, pointed out that the 
General Conference has en- 
couraged conferences to 
employ women in ministry. 
"They have the same educa- 
tional preparation as men. 
Several conferences have ac- 
cepted them in pastoral roles. 
They have been taking their 
places with their male 
classmates on pastoral staffs." 

Bradford urged the world 
leaders of the church to have 
sympathy and understanding. 
"North America has its chal- 
lenges to face. If we are a world 
church, the entire church 
should be concerned with our 

President Wallace O. Coe of 
the Columbia Union Con- 
ference asked the world 
representatives to "look at all 
sides of the issues and ask the 
Lord to lead us to the correct 

President Ron M. Wisbey of 
the Potomac Conference said a 
survey revealed 94 / of the con- 
ference's ministers supported 
their fellow women pastors. He 

said the question is a matter of 
conscience for the conference's 
executive committee. "Our 
women pastors feel their call to 
ministry just as deeply as every 
member of the clergy sitting 
here today," he said. 

Former General Conference 
President Robert H. Pierson 
appealed for study of the Bible 
and of the Spirit of Prophecy 
(writings of church founder 
Ellen G. white), "not of what 
other churches are doing, not 
what radical liberals propose, 
not what proponents of the 
status quo urge. We must find 
the solution on our knees, and 
then move ahead as a united 

The council earlier voted to 
reaffirm a 1975 Spring Meeting 
action on the "Role of Women 
in the Church" and establish- 
ed guidelines for the selection 
and ordination of women as

the dancers, and the leapers. 
Kirk Gibson, eat your heart 

Although the NFL's regular 
season is half over, this week 
starts the beginning of the real 
regular season. There is not a 
team in first place with more 
than a two game lead, but with 
eight weeks to go, that's not a 
bad position to be in. 

Which team is the strongest? 
That is debatable. If we go by 
records, the Miami Dolphins 
are considered the best. Some 
dare to compare these Dolphins 
with the Dolphins of 1974 (bet- 
ter known as the year as the 
year of Richard Nixon). Yet 
still there are other teams which 
can be considered tops in the 

The San Francisco 49ers 
boast a 7-1 record. The 49ers 
don't have a squad that is 
bursting with superstars, but 
they get the job done. Led by 
QB Joe Montana, the 49ers are 
the team to beat in the NFC 

The Washington Redskins 
and the St. Louis Cardinals, yes 
the Cardinals, are tied for the 
top spot in the NFC East. It's 
easy to predict that the 'Skins 
will come out on top based sole- 
ly on the past two years, but the 
Cards are a pretty potent 
group. It'll be interesting down 
the stretch. And although many 
would like to, let's not forget 
the Cowboys. 

In the NFC Central, the 
Chicago Bears, behind Jim 
McMahon and Walter Payton, 
are sitting on top of their divi- 
sion at the midway point this 
season. Upcoming is a date 
with the World Champion Los 
Angeles Raiders, though. That 
match will surely put the young 
Bears up to the test of being a 
contending team. The Min- 
nesota Vikings and the Green 


Bay Packers, previously con- 
sidered to be the stronger teams 
in the Central Division, both 
are fairing poorly so far. 

In football's best division, 
the AFC West, Los Angeles 
and the Denver Broncos are 
locked in a 7-1 tie for first 
place. The only loss the Raiders 
have this season came at the 
hands of the Broncos. Think 
the black and silver want 
revenge? The only loss that the 
Broncos suffered came in a 
blowout at Chicago. The Bron- 
cos haven't been able to beat 
Chicago in four years, though. 
The Seattle Seahawks are an 
awesome bunch themselves. 
Seattle would really be in the 
thick of things if they hadn't 
lost Curt Warner to injury ear- 
ly in the season. Franco Harris* 
past record won't be enough to 
help theis team. The Seahawks 
need him this year; unfor- 
tunately, he can only run out- 
of-bounds now. 

The San Diego Chargers still 
have a great offensive attack 
despite losing Kellen Winslow 
to injury and Chuck Muncie to 
the di up ward. QB Dan Fouts 
is the anchor for this team, but 
as long as the Chargers score 40 
points and give up 44, they'll 
still lose. The Chargers have ab- 
solutely no defense.. .absolute- 
ly none. (The Kansas City 
Chiefs with Todd Blackledge 
are a team of the future and 
thus don't fit in this article.) 
The AFC Central is a joke. 
Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, 
Cleveland, and Houston are 
football's version of baseball's 
American League West divi- 
sion. Neither of these teams 
should go to the playoffs but 
one will. Stupid? You bet. 

I'm sure everyone that is 
reading this article will not 
totally agree with me, but one 
thing is for certain. Football 
does not get interesting until 
after week number 10. I don't 
care how many times you like 


to see Washington beat Dallas; 
who cares until after week 
number 10? Chances are Miami 
will remain unbeaten, but who 
cares until after week number 
10? A 10-0 record is much im- 
pressive than an 8-0 record any 

Now that the Fall Classic is 
done away with, the Fall Guys 
are in full swing until the Super

At the last Student Associa- 
tion Joker editor, Reg Rice, 
promised that within a week the 
Joker would be in the students' 
hands. True to his word they 
were delivered on October 23, 
1984. Most students found the 
Joker on their dormitory room 

The holdup was caused by 
printing delays at the press, late 
pictures from the Orlando 
Campus and various other 

The Joker has more informa- 
tion listed in it this year, but 
aside from the greater quantity 
of information the quality has 
been questioned. A notable 
grainy effect appears on the

speedy publication. After a late 
production this year, next years

It's Rainin' Again

Well, how has your week 
been so far? I think we could all 
agree that "wet" describes it 
pretty well. Yes, once again

Southern College the umbrella

Monday morning, I was pass- 
ed by students wearing 
everything from plastic 
trashbags to full length tren- 
chcoats. Umbrellas, however, 
are the predominant species. 

Umbrellas are available at 
the Campus Shop in three 
styles. These styles include a 
collapsible and non-collapsible 
variety-both of which are 
[water proof. For those of you 
Who are dating or have more 
lhan one friend, a selection of 
Barge golfer's umbrellas are in 

stock. "Style" number three 
comes in the above mentioned 
varieties but is not water proof! 
Ignorant of this important dif- 
ference and having the good 
luck I usually do, I bought one 
that wasn't water resistant. Yes, 
I got soaked the first time I us- 
ed my umbrella. Realizing the 
error of my ways, I returned to 
the Campus Shop. Many other 
students had made the same 
mistake and were carefully 
reading umbrella labels to avoid 
a second bath. 

For those of you who find 
rain a nuisance, I would like to 
point out the following. Did 
you know that walking in the 
rain at SC can be a new social 
experience? Yes, some roman- 
ces have been started-believe it 
or not-by a chivalric gentleman

weren't enough to deal with, 
we've also got to navigate 
around puddles, which can be 
an adventure in itself. Of 
course, the term puddle is a 
relative one. I think "lake" 
would best describe the amount 
of water that collects at the bot- 
tom of the steps between 
Wright Hall and Talge Hall. 

In fact, 1 had a personal close 
encounter with this body of

Candidates Debate 

President Reagan and Walter Mori dale pounded each other in 
the second presidential debate Sunday, October 21. Mondale 
stated that President Reagan is an out-of-touch leader whose 
foreign policy has "humiliated" the United States. He also said, 
"I will keep us strong," and as a result of the president's policies 
in Central America, "We have been humiliated and our opponents 
are stronger." Reagan reported in the debate that Mondale has 
a "record of weakness. ..that is second to none" on national 
defence and jabbed back at Mondale with the following statement: 
"It may come to Mr. Mondale's surprise, but I am in charge." 
No claim of victory was made after the campaign by either 
challenger, but Vice President George Bush stated, "I think we 
just wrapped up four more years." 

Soviet Arms Control Shift 

Secretary of State George P. Shultz said Sunday that the new 
position of intermediate-range missiles in Europe may be unac- 
ceptable. A Soviet official was quoted Friday as suggesting that 
Moscow might no longer insist that the United States withdraw 
all of the new cruise and Pershing 2 missiles it has deployed in 
Britain, Italy, and West German since last December. Shultz said 
that the official may have been suggesting " a little different 
stance," and a moratorium on deployment of American missiles 
may be sufficient to get arms talks under way again. 

Heavy Storms Ravage Mississippi Valley 

Heavy thunderstorms erupted Sunday over the lower Mississippi 
Valley, causing tornados and dumping rain on parts of Texas and 
Louisiana that had been hit by storms the day before. Tornados 
touched down Sunday and other possible twisters were detected 
on radar, said the National Weather Service. 

Planes Crash 

Investigators looked through the wreckage of two small planes 
that crashed this weekend in Cheyenne, Wyoming. One official 
said that one factor for the accidents may have been the 
snowstorms that have ravaged the area the last week. A twin- 
engine Cessna crashed into a North Cheyenne home Saturday, 
killing a 2-year-old boy inside the house and injuring the four peo- 
ple aboard the aircraft. One passenger told a police officer that 
the wings had iced up.

U.S. Senate Hopeful Ashe Visits Southern 

Victor Ashe, candidate for 
■the United States Senate, arriv- 
ed unceremoniously in front of 
■bright Hall at 10:00 a.m. on 
fcctober 30, 1984. His brief, 20 
pninute stop at Southern Col- 
lege was one in a series of stops 
Jturing Ashe's final campaign 
ring through western Ten- 
nessee. Ashe appeared very 
porn out when he arrived and 
ughout the course of his 
S/isit. His tour of the campus 
companied by a small 
delegation of students with SA 
President Shim as the host. One 
|of Ashe's aids was overheard 
jaying that Victor Ashe had on- 
|ly gotten 1 Vi hours of sleep the 
njght before. 

Attorney, native of Knox- 

iville, fifth generation Tennes- 

[sean, Mr. Ashe started his 

in public service working 

Ifor Senator Howard Baker. A 

iverteran Senate, Victor con- 

istently won reelection with 60 

[to 70 percent margins. He re- 

Icently won the 1984 Republican 

iPrimary by an overwhelming 87 

Ipercent of the vote. President 

Ronald Reagan briefly states, 

■"We need Victor Ashe in the 

lu.S. Senate." In Washington, 

■Victor claims he will work for 

a balanced federal budget that 

is fair and the continuation of 

president Reagan's economic 

molicies. More jobs for Ten- 

ftessee is a primary concern to 

Victor, and he plans to have a 

■taff person working full-time 

to bring business and industry 
to Tennessee. 

Victor Ashe's Democratic 
opponent, Albert Gore, has 
been shown to be currently 
ahead in professional polls, but 
Ashe doesn't think that these 
polls are a correct reflection of 
the public opinion. Ashe claims 
to have won a number of polls 
taken in high schools and even 
on the elementary school level 
and claims that this is a good 
indicator of what the parents at 
home are thinking. This com- 
ing Tuesday Victor Ashe will 
have a chance to prove his logic 

While visiting at Southern, 
Ashe was posed a number of 
questions. One of the questions 
raised was on Ashe's stand on 
higher education to which Ashe 
replied, "My wife is a second 
grade school teacher." Ashe 
went on to state that he was for 
higher education and felt that 
there was a strong role for 
private colleges to play in 
education and that we should 
not take on any governmental 
activity that would inhibit that 

A number of questions were 
directed towards Ashe which 
questioned what could be done 
to better private schools. One 
such question focused on tax 
credits for private colleges of 
which Ashe thought to be a 
justifiable expenditure. He 
stated, however, that the

federal deficit had to come 
down and that such tax credits 
at this time would not be 
beneficial in balancing the 
budget which Ashe strongly 
supports a Contitutional Am- 
mendment for. 

When voting for a candidate 
a voter likes to know who else 
supports the candidate. One 
such question was asked to 
Ashe and he replied "I have the 
support of Governor Alexander 
and the support of President 
Reagan. In fact, if you have 
seen my latest television com- 
mercials, you'll see that the 
President is featured in them." 

Ashe responded to a host of 
other questions which for the 
most part he had ready re- 
sponses to. The one question 
which he said he had never been 
confronted with before was on 
President Reagn's appointment 
of an ambassador to the 
Vatican. Ashe stated that he 
would have to look over the 
reasons and issues before he 
could take a stand on it, but he 
did say "I am a firm believer in

The fast sell-out is no suprise 
though. Clower, named 
"Country Comic of the Year" 
for nine years running, is in 
popular demand. Each year he 
makes about two hundred ap- 
pearances. In the month of Oc- 
tober alone, he has traveled 
from Florida to California, to 
Virginia and North Carolina, to 
Georgia and back to Florida. 

Clower's stories of life in 
Amite County, Mississippi, 
have taken him to several ap- 
pearances at the Grand Ole 
Opry. Besides his numerous 
television commercials, Clower 
has produced 15 records and 2 
books. "Ain't God Good!" 
and "Let the Hammer Down."

Fall Festival Ends With Barn Party 

Lori Heinsman 

Hooray for Fall Festival- 
weekend of opportunity. S.C. 
students had the opportunity to 
blow off steam and tension 
from mid-term exams and show 
their spirit and enthusiasm dur- 
ing Fall Festival weekend, Oc- 
tober 24 through 28. One stu- 
dent said this was "a chance to 
see who all the fun people are 
by the ways that they dress- 
up... especially with the im- 
agination shown by some of the 
costumes worn at the barn par- 
ty Sunday night." 

This "dress-up" weekend 
began on Wednesday with 
"Scrub-clothes, factory-togs 
and T-shirt with a Message 
Day." Thursday consisted of 
"Country Western Day" and a 
Country Jamboree picnic for 
supper. Everyone dressed 
elegantly or super-preppy on 
Friday and then displayed their 
costumes Sunday night at the 
barn party. 

As a whole, the students en- 
joyed this dress-up occasion. 
Dale Lacra suggests we include 
a hat day and an inside out day, 
and Kelly Hosier would like to 
see more students and faculty

When Tragedy Strikes 

In the oast two years, this college and its small community have 
had a rLh of tragedies. The most recent one happen* M- -* 
when Scott Yankelevitz died in an accident, m wh.c , h ™sdo 
tag something he loved to do--ska.eboard.ngJ3 «<*££" 
DODular students at Southern, Scott's death was mourned oy a 
£ge par of the student body. This fact was M* 
a several hundred students attended the memorial servtce at the 
Collegedale church last Thursday morning. 

When tragedy occurs, questions are raised: Why did he have 
to die so young? Why did she have to be born mentally retarded? 
Wh did he hfve to lose his legs? Why does she have to ,M 
rest of her life physically and mentally disfigured from the tire 
However, all of these questions evolve from a more basic one. 
why does God allow tragedies to occur to good people . 

Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. Few are satisfied .with 
the answer that God only knows. From that response evolves the 
ones with more elaboration: "It was his time to go. uoo. is 
trying to tell you something." "This is the way God wants you 
toTe-crippled." "God didn't do it, Satan did." Yet, excep for 
the last answer, each one of these strikes against what we believe 
our God to be-a loving Creator who has our best interests in 
mind. And the last answer doesn't allow us to know why He didn t 
intervene. Once again, there is no easy answer; neither are there 
any that can be used for any one incident. 

Last week's tragedy occurred to an individual who was happy- 
go-lucky He also learned something from everything he did. I 
do not wish to speculate on how Scott would have reacted to a 
close friend's death, yet he probably would have learned 
something from it, also. The lesson many of us have learned from 
last week is that in a world where evil reigns supreme, our only 
source of hope and peace is a personal relationship with God. 
We do not understand why God allowed Scott to die, but we do 
not let this embitter us. For we have this knowledge: God has given 
us a way of escape from the pains of evil-Jesus Christ. 

Slang Test 


I was in a dazed state after I 
got off the phone Wednesday 
afternoon: one of my best 
friends, Scott Yankelevitz died. 
To those who never had the op- 
portunity to meet him, they 
missed one of the rare pleasures 
there are to be had. When I 
heard the news 1 thought the 
right response would be to cry, 
but after thinking hard, I said 
to myself that Scott would have 
said his famous line, "Go with 
the flow." At the time the 
thought in my head sounded 
very cold and morbid, but 
pondering it more I reckoned in 
my mind that Scott died doing 
something he very much en- 
joyed. I hold no contempt for 
that skateboard, because we 
had talked about when we 
went-whether it was 'taking a 
drive to Trenton,' or talking 
about the Redskins,-we figured 
that when the time came, we'd 
be enjoying something. "Go 
with the flow" was our state- 
ment to an anxious, and stress 
burdened world. Scott was hap- 
piest when he was wearing his 
shark shorts and shooting 
basketball or anything that 
could be done outdoors. Our 
conversations would get serious 
once in a while, and they would 
last for only a few minutes and 
then the talk would turn to liv- 
ing a Bohemian lifestyle on the 
beach in California or talk of 
hoping the cafeteria would be 
serving biscuits and gravy, our 
favorite breakfast dish while at 
Southern. If nothing were said 
between us, it wasn't that 
something was wrong, it was 
that everything was perfect. 
Scott was a great friend, he 
would always try to help you 
out with money, his car, or just 

I know that eventually I'll 
break down and cry, but before 
I do this much has to be said. 

Cry if you must, I know I will, 
but if you can help it at all, and 
can hold it back, smile and 
think of surfing, basketball, 
girls, and the Washington Red- 
skins. When you do, you'll be 
holding his memory better than 
tears could ever express. "Go 
with the flow."

My father never finished high 
school. Due to the economy of 
the times and the fact that he 
was the only son in a family of 
seven sisters, he went to work 
for his father and never re- 
turned to school. That is not to 
;ay that his education ended 
then. In fact he was an avid 
eader, active in the local 
Methodist Debating League, 
and because he was a typeset- 
ter and proofreader in the 
Minting business, could spot a 
hisspelled word or a split in- 
finitive like a skilled gram- 
marian. He therefore took in- 
tense interest in the higher 
:ducation of each of his 

Often, at the supper table, he 
would ask me, "What did you 
earn in school today?" I had 
earned through experience to 
ivoid the response "nothing" 
s that would incur a look of 
profound disbelief and disap- 
jointment. "Nothing? You sat 
or seven hours in a classroom 
nd learned nothing?" In- 
variably I found that if I 
thought hard enough I could 
think of something. "Well, the 
mature porcupine has some 
30,000 quills on its head, back, 
flanks, and tail." or "The plant 
life of the oceans makes up 
about 85 percent of all the 
greenery on this planet." With 
this, he would be content that 
it least the entire day had not 
been wasted and I knew I was 
safe until the next time he ask- 
id that question. 

If seemed that only a few 
fears had passed unitl I com- 
pleted high school, finished col- 
lege, and was back teaching the 
Rame school, trying to make 
Hiouns and adverbs exciting to 
a generation who found them 
ps irrelevant as I once did. It 

was during that first year that 
our superintendant gave me an 
update on my father's 
philosophy: "You have these 
students in your school for 
almost a thousand hours each 
year. What are you going to 
teach them?" I found it signifi- 
cant that in most classrooms 
teachers ask about 90 percent 
of the questions and answer 
most of these themselves. I also 
noticed that I seemed to learn 
more from teaching than I ever 
did when I was a student in the 
same discipline. 

Several years ago David 
Berkowitz, the notorious "Son 
of Sam" killer, was arrested in 
New York City. Prior to his ar- 
rest he sent notes to the police 
explaining why he had commit- 
ted the murders and that he 
planned to kill again. In ex- 
amining these notes one 
psychologist noticed that 
Berkowitz knew how to use a 
semi-colon correctly, something 
that most of the population 
cannot do. (A semi-colon joins 
two independent clauses that 
are not joined by a co-ordinate 
conjunction) It amazed me that 
at some point he had been a 
student in a classroom 
somewhere and had learned this 
profound piece of information 
but somehow had not been im- 
pressed with the rights of others 
and the golden rule, that some 
teacher had drilled home points 
of grammar and composition 
but had not seen the signs of a 
disturbed mind crying out for 

It has been said that educa- 
tion is what you have left when 
you've forgotten everything 
you've learned in school. While 
this definition may seem con- 
tradictory at first, it does con- 
tain the sad truth that many of 

us retain little of what we learn. 
Although we graduate from 
college at the end of four (or 
more) years and have the 
diploma hanging in a promi- 
nent place on the wall, when it 
comes right down to it, we re- 
tain very little of all we have 
learned or "crammed" during 
our college years. 

A well-known cofhic does a 
routine which he calls his "five 
minute college program." He 
begins with the premise that 
because we forget most of what 
we learn in college we can save 
a lot of time and money if we 
eliminate those facts that we 
will forget anyway and just 
learn the very basics of each 
course, those facts that we 
won't forget. It goes something 
like this: 

Accounting-Debits go on the 
left. Red ink is bad but 
black is beautiful. 
Economics-Supply and de- 
mand. You sell something 
for more than you paid 

for it—that's called profit 
and it's ail that's really 
important in economics. 
Spanish--Since most people 
speak English today or 
they know someone who 
does, you can save 
yourself a lot of time and 
study by only speaking to 
those people. Two 
sentences in Spanish are 
all you really need to 
know: "Habla Ud. in- 
gles?" (Do you speak 
English?) If they say 
"no" you ask, "Conoce 
Ud. a alguien que habla 
ingles?" (Do you know 
anyone who does?) 
Theology-Only two questions 
are important:"Where is 
God?" (Everywhere) and 
"Why is God 

everywhere?" (Because 
He loves us) 
Algebra-You'll never use it so 

forget it. 
Geometry-Just as important as 

While his five minute course 
would no doubt anger most 
educators (especially those who 
disciplines were reduced to a 
sentence or less) the sad truth is 
that most of us who complete 
a college program remember 
almost nothing outside of our 
major fields. This is not 
because it was unimportant, 
but because we never took the 
time to use what we'd learned 
in these "electives." 

I personally look back on my 
own college program with a lot 
of regret. Not because I chose 
the wrong field or attended the 
wrong college but because I 
could have learned so much 
more than I did. Like many 
students I was so anxious to 
finish the program and get on 

with life that the four years 
seemed to pass like one. There 
were courses I should have 
taken as electives (astronomy 
was one of them) that would 
have been so much more 
beneficial than some I took 
because it gave me an easier 
schedule or an easier grade. 
However, like most others, I've 
found that education doesn't 
have to end with graduation; it 
just takes greater discipline to 
achieve it afterwards. 

Incidently, did you know 
that a woodchuck breathes on- 
ly ten times per hour while 
hibernating? An active wood- 
chuck breathes 2,100 times an 
hour. (Now you can say that 
you've learned something new 
in school today.)

In Memory of Scott 


Jeny Russell 

"Endless days barefoot on the 

Suntan that never fades, 
And that spirit that runs free." 
-Scott J. Yankelevitz 

Sitting in my room, staring at 
the floor laughing then crying, 
thinking, remembering the good 
and bad of my friend who was 
so much a part of my life. I'll 
never forget Scott for the con- 
tribution that he made in my life 
and his optimistic attitude that 
greatly inspired every day. He 
was warm and sensitive, having 
a teasing sense of humor that 
always brought me out of the 
deepest despair. 

I remember that once last year 
I had what seemed an insur- 
mountable problem that had me 
down for several weeks. Every- 
day Scott spent hours talking 
with me, encouraging and help- 
ing me to deal with it. After that 
there were many more times that 
Scott and I would just sit and talk 
because it felt so good to reason 
some things out. In all the times 
that we talked, I never saw Scott 
get angry. He just didn't get riled. 
You always could count on Scott 
to react the same way: a sly grin, 

raised eyebrows, and a little nod 
of the head. 

Friday afternoons were always 
special to us. After classes were 
over Scott, Rob, and I would 
jump into the 700 LDS with the 
top down and cruise over to the 
pool to lay out or into town for 
the afternoon. We especially en- 
joyed these times because it was 
the boys' afternoon out. Scott 
would be decked out in those 
shorts, a T-shirt with a surfing 
logo, and his raggedy vans-the 
look that just epitomized his life 

Scott was kind of a free spirit, 
while at the same time organized 
enough to be an "A" student. To 
say he loved the beach would be 
an understatement. Last summer 
while at home, I didn't even 
bother to try to see Scooter on 
weekends because very few of 
them went by that he wasn't in 
Ocean City. He always said that 
it was the "best beach in the 
Continental United States." 
There he would be on the sand 
during "peak tanning hours". 

Scott had marry good qualities, 
and he touched our lives in 
countless ways, but the 

characteristic I admired the most 
was his unfailing dedication to his 
friends. On several occasions 
when people had said negative 
things about one of his friends, 
each time he came to our rescue 
and defended us at any cost to 
himself. This was a quality of 
Scott's that I always appreciated 
and wished I had the guts to do 

Through it all Scott was one of 
the greatest guys and certainly 
one of the best friends I've ever 
had. There will always be an 
empty place in my heart that can 
never be filled by anyone else. I, 
along with many other friends, 
consider myself very fortunate 
and honored to have known him. 
His silent influence and leader- 
ship brought me through many 
I can praise God for I'm going 
to see Scooter again, however. 
Resurrection morning now takes 
on a new meaning for me. That 
day will put to an end an era of 
pain and suffering, and begin a 
new one of "endless days 
barefoot" by the Sea of Glass 
where "that spirit" can run free. 
Good-bye Scotty. We love 

Senate Begins Forming Plans 

Record New SDA Members 

Sheila Elwin 

With the October 24 Senate 
meeting having been postponed 
because of the accident to Scott 
Yankelevitz last week, a special 
October 29 meeting was held 
this week. It began with the 
Pledge of Allegiance, followed 
by a devotional by Senator 

The position of Secretary 
Loudin, who was sick, was 
temporarily filled by Senators 
Jobe and Reinhardt. 

According to a special update 
from Terry Cantrell, Director 
of Strawberry Festival, plans 
are going better than in 
previous years. Cantrell ex- 
plained that this is due in part 
to a larger staff of approx- 
imately 30 people, including 18 
This year the Festival will in- 
clude more special effects and 
graphics: pictures will move 
faster; the music will have a 
slightly more up-beat tempo; 
and some of the music will be 
originally composed by 

k students. 

" Another definite improve- 
ment over years past is the ac- 
tual showing. The gym will be 
arranged crosswise rather than 
lengthwise, allowing everyone 
to sit in front of the equipment. 
Afterwards, President Shim 
announced the presence of Vic- 
tor Ashe, Republican 
Senatorial candidate, on cam- 

pus around 10:30 a.m., Oct. 30, 
for any who wish to meet him. 

Also, Shim gave the newest 
proposed time-this Thursday 
at noon--for the "surprise" in 
the cafeteria. 

Because of apparent student 
concern over cafeteria pricing, 
Senator Denton proposed to 
send an official delegate to Earl 
Evans, cafeteria director, to ask 
him some pertinent questions 
and then publish his answers. 

Senator Bass introduced two 
ideas which his committee has 
come up with for Senate pro- 
ject. These are a book detection 
device for the library and a 
lighted student information 
sign for the cafeteria. Nothing 
is definite, though, and all are 
welcome to add their thoughts. 

Senate adjourned after Vice 
President Palsgrove reminded 
the senators of the next regular 
meeting, Nov. 5.

posted, all senate meetings are 
open for anyone to go and

Record numbers of people 
are joining the Seventh-day 
Adventist Church, General 
Conference President Neal C. 
Wilson reported in his October 
9 keynote address to the 
church's 1984 Annual Council. 

"Through the first seven 
quarters of the church's ' 1 ,000 
Days of Reaping' campaign, 
nearly 666,000 people have 
joined," Wilson explained. 
"The exact figure is 1,034 bap- 
tisms per day." 

The campaign goal is 1,000 
new members per day for 1 ,000 
days beginning during the fall 
of 1982 and ending at the 
church's General Conference 
Session in New Orleans in the 
summer of 1985. Wilson said 
the church expects to report 
more than 1.1 million new 
members at the New Orleans 

Pointing to area of strong 
church growth, Wilson said the 
Inter- American Division hopes 
to have a membership of 
900,000 by mid-1985. He said 
the Mexican Union, which has 
a membership of approximate- 
ly 20,000 fifteen years ago, will 
have 200,000 members by the 
end of 1984. 

Wilson said the largest 
union-the East African Union 
with more than 200,000 mem- 
bers-"has even bigger spiritual 
objectives before them." He 
said an additional 13 union 

conferences have more than 
100,000 members-four in the 
Inter- American Division, two 
in the Far Eastern Division, two 
in the North American Divi- 
sion, two in the Africa-Indian 
Ocean Division and three in the 
South American Division. 

"What hath God wrought!" 
Wilson concluded. "Let's 
renew our covenant with God," 
he said. "Let's review His 
mighty acts and His ability to 
save. Let's extol the goodness 
and greatness of God. Let's be 
a peculiar people, a called-out 
people, an instrument in God's 
hand to every nation, kindred, 
tongue and people." 

"Let's respond to God's 
warnings and exaltation to His 
people to obey His law," he 
continued. "Let's recognize the 
place of true worship and study 
of God's Word as a path of 
unity of faith and action that 
will eliminate so many of the 
peripheral issues that take up so 
much of our time and energy. 
And let's accept God's promise 
of blessings and rewards for 
those who observe His coven- 

The Annual Council agenda 
contained such diverse subjects 
as reports and proposals on the 
administration and use of tithe 
funds, a statement of 
theological freedom and ac- 
countability, the pastoral role 
of women, the publishing work 

in North America, Sabbath 
observance, the role ?nd func-

Dr. Greenleaf Talks About 
1951-52 Accent 

Ron Aguilera 

Besides having the first Ac- 
cent editor, Frances Andrews, 
Southern College also has a 
faculty member who was the 
Accent editor 33 years ago: Dr. 
Floyd Greenleaf. Dr. Greenleaf 
, professor in our History 

Dr. Grenleaf graduated from 
SMC in 1955 with a double ma- 
jor in history and religion with 

i emphasis on teaching. He 
later received his masters in 
social science from George 
Peabody College for Teachers, 
which is now the Vanderbilt 
School of Education. In 1976, 
he completed his Ph.D. from 
the University of Tennessee, 
emphasizing in Latin American 
History. He is currently com- 
pleting a 3 volume work on 
Adventism in Latin America 
and the Caribbean. 

Dr. Greenleaf, who had 
always been interested in jour- 
nalism and who had been both 
i reporter and assistant editor, 
became editor in the 1951-52 
school year. 

One of the problems the 
paper faced then was that the 
Accent did not carry adver- 
nents. One may ask, how 
did the paper operate without 
advertisement? Dr. Greenleaf 
tells us that the paper's budget 
came from selling subscrip- 
s. With the Accent coming 
out every two weeks, he recalls 
that they were reasonably suc- 
cessful that year. They needed 
4000 subscriptions and ended 
up a little short. However, they 
did not publish the last issue 

that year to balance out the 

One of the major problems 
of the Accent back then was 
that it did not have any trained 
writers. "It was hard to find 
competent news article writers 
who were trained," says Dr. 

In 1951-52 there were about 
400-500 students on the cam- 
pus. Everyone knew everybody 
and there was a feeling of 
togetherness. Also, the 
academy was on the same cam- 
pus as the college and the 
academy and college students 
lived together in the dorms. 
Because of this the Southern 
Accent had a section, "Accent 
on the Academy," for the 
academy activities. 

Dr. Greenleaf says that he 
had two sources of copy. First 
of all, he kept his eyes peeled 
for new stories. Secondly, staff 

columnists were assigned a cer- 
tain area of campus. In his year 
Dr. Greenleaf had four colum- 
nists cover the men's dorm, 
women's dorm, married 
students, and faulty. One can 
see that there was more of a 
personal feeling in the Accent 
33 years ago. 

Also, one- notices that the 
Southern Accent has changed 
in both its format and produc- 
tion. With more students, more 
offered majors, and more 
faculty, the newspaper has 
more sources of material. Also, 
it has expanded to eight pages 
in contrast to four pages in 
1951-52. The changes make for 
an improved paper, but today's 
staff doubt if they would have 
taken the job of putting a week- 
ly paper out under the cir- 
cumstances which Dr. 
Greenleaf faced.

Death for Teague 

The Tennessee Supreme Court has upheld the Hamilton County 
Criminal Court jury's ruling of death by electrocution for Ray- 
mond Eugene Teague. The 29-year-old Teague was convicted of 
drowing his ex-wife in her bathtub April 4, 1980. His attorney 
states that Teague has not yet been advised of the ruling because 
he wishes to first study it before deciding on appeals.

Mondale Warns U.S. in TV Ad 

The Mondale campaign put a 5-minute ad on national televi- 
sion Sunday, presenting the election as a referendum on arms con- 
trol. The ad was televised on all three commercial networks and 
included footage of young children combined with shots of 
missiles, a nuclear blast, and shots of the "Red telephone" a presi- 
dent would use to respond to a nuclear attack. Mondale says "We 
know if those bombs go off, its probably the end. It's over." 

Job Rate Falling 

Unemployment in the Chattanooga trade area fell to a prereces- 
sion low of 7 percent last month. Employment Security commis- 
sioner Thomas Yount said, "We have a rapidly expanding work 
force, and new job opportunities are growing at an even faster 
pace. Those are signs of a very healthy economy." The Chat- 
tanooga Chamber of Commerce records indicate the city's larger 
trade area has not posted an unemployment rate as low as 7 per- 
cent since December of 1980.

Harrison Schmitt, a former moon-walking astronaut, said a

called a settlement on Mars "the first great adventure for 
humankind of the next thousand years."

anyway for the 14-day-old infant. By late Tuesday morning she 
had become the longest-surviving human recipient of a cross-

Last summer I visited my 
best friend in Atlanta, and on 
my way back to Lincoln, 
Nebraska, where I was living at 
the time, I stopped in Col- 
legedale to visit Dr. John 

For those of you who know 
Dr. Wagner, you probably 
realize that with his trusting 
smile and friendly outstretched 
hand, he could probably sell 
you your own car. 

Well, I had been out of 
school a year and a half, hated 
my job, and was basically 
bored. To make a long story 
short, within twenty minutes he 
sold me on going back to 
school, and six weeks later I 
was here. 

I arrived on campus Friday 
night or Sabbath morning, 
depending on how you view 
2:00 a.m. After having been 
sold on how nice students at 
Southern College were, the First 
person I had contact with was 
the desk worker at Thatcher 
Hall. What a grouch! 

I was excited to be here and 
asked what she thought of the 
school, and if she liked it here. 
Well, I can't repeat exactly 
what she said, but it wasn't 
nice. Of course, one person's 
opinion didn't really affect 
mine, but I did stand there and 
think that this was bad Public 
Relations for a dorm employee. 

The next person I met was 
also a desk worker (Angela 
Saunders), but this time I had 
a very positive experience, and 
today she is a wonderful friend. 
So by now your probably ask- 

ing yourself, what is the point 
of this article? School spirit! I 
love Southern College; we 
should be proud to be students 
at an institution where the ad- 
ministration, staff, and 
teachers care enough to want to 
be your friends. I've been to 
L.L.U., W.W.C., and Union 
and have never encountered 
such a caring, Christian ad- 
ministration such as I've seen 

Southern College has the 
finest President and Dean of 
Students that a college could 
hope for. I can't think of two 
finer Christian men anywhere. 
This campus is beautiful and so 
are the buildings and 

I feel sick inside everytime I 
hear someone say how bad the 
school is. This is a great school, 
and the bottom line is, we are 
"The School." If you don't like 
it here, you're one of the 
reasons why you don't. Like 
anything else, this school is 
what we as students make it. 
Tomorrow when you see a 
stranger, say "Hi." When you 
see a true friend, give them a 
hug-they just might really need 
it. After your next class, tell 
your teacher, "Hey, I ap- 
preciate you. Thanks for being 
my friend as well as my 
teacher." And last, but certain- 
ly not least, when you see an 
administrator (President, 
deans, division heads, etc.), 
shake their hand and thank 
them for a fine school. Let's get 
l ii ed up, be proud to be a stu- 
dent at. . .whatever they decide 
to call it.

have studied the number of 
fogs in August, the color of

deducing how long and severe

Religion Center Is Dedicated 

The Religion Center was 
ledicated last Friday, 
November 2. As the opening 
meeting for this year's Alumni 
Weekend, the dedication ser- 
was well attended by both 
alumni of Southern Junior 
current students, despite a light 
iut constant drizzle. 

On the platform were seated 
distinguished men of today and 
yesterday, each having a part in 
the program. O.D. McKee, 
er of the McKee Baking 
Company; Gary Patterson, 
President of the Georgia- 
Cumberland Conference; Dr. 
John Wagner, President of 
Southern College; Al McCIure, 
President of the Southern 
Union; William Taylor, Direc- 
of the Endowment Fund 
Campaign; Dr. Jack McClarty, 
Director of Development; Dr. 
Gordon Hyde, Chairman of the 

Division of Religion; and 
Robert Pierson, former Presi- 
dent of the General Con- 
ference, were just a few of these 

Jesse Cowdrick, a loyal sup- 
porter of Southern College and 
distinguished for his work both 
in the church and in the public 
sector, made the presentation 
of So-Ju-Conian Hall and after 
the acceptance by Al McCIure, 
Jr., Gary Patterson, John 
Wagner, and Gordon Hyde, Al 
McCIure, Sr.,and Robert Pier- 
son gave the dedicatory address 
and prayer, respectively. 
Following this came the in- 
troduction of the traditional 
cutting of the ribbon. 

The Religion Center, former- 
ly Miller Hall, will now be call- 
ed So-Ju-Conian Hall. The 
name was chosen because the 
So-Ju-Conians have made its 
renovation their project for this 

year. After the renovations 

through, the hall will be 

plete with a chapel, faculty of 
fices, classrooms, and a 
Heritage Room which will hold 
the SDA Library. 

During the ceremony, the 
landscaping was commenced 
with the planting of a tree from 
Graysvilie, the original home of 
Southern Junior College. Other 
parts of the landscaping will be 
a Garden of Prayer, a sun dial, 
and a fountain. 

A special part of the service, 
which was not put in the 
bulletin, was the making of Dr. 
Jack McClarty as an honorary 
So-Ju-Conian. Although not 
old enough to be an actual So- 
Ju-Conian, Dr. McClarty's 
leadership and work in behalf 
of the organization is very 
much appreciated. 

The dedication service ended 
with a tour of the facilities. 

Weekend Features Southern Union Gymnastics Show 

A gymnastics show Saturday 
night at Southern College of 
Seventh-day Adventists will 
culminate a two-day southern- 
states gymnastics workshop on 
the Collegedale campus. 

Gymnastics teams from par- 
ticipating schools will perform 
short routines beginning at 8 
in the Physical Education 

Center. Blue Holm of Chat- 
tanooga, former circus per- 
former and now coach at the 
Tennessee Academy of Gym- 
nastics, is assisting throughout 
the workshop and will also par- 
ticipate on Saturday night. 

Over 300 representatives 
from 1 7 secondary schools 
ranging from Miami to Cen- 

tralia, Missouri, and Hamburg, 
Pennsylvania, will be on the 
college campus Thursday and 
Friday for an intensive 
acrosport clinic. 

Steve Elliot, a top world- 
class acrosport from the 
University of Nebraska, is the 
master clinician for the 
workshop. He is world cham- 

pion in floor routine and tram- 
poline. Due to an injury incur- 
red while performing in Japan, 
he will be coaching here rather 
than performing, according to 
Ted Evans. Mr. Evans is 
workshop director and assistant 
professor in the Division of 
Health, Physical Education, 
and Recreation at Southern

Students in the baccalaureate 
nursing program here at 
Southern College will no longer 
be required to attend one of 
their two final semesters on the 
Orlando Campus. This action 
voted on and accepted at 
the last Southern College Board 
Meeting, held la^t Thursday, 
November 1. 

There are several reasons for 
this change. One of them is that 
11 save money and enable 
the Division of Nursing to work 
more efficiently with the 

Another reason concerns the 
married nurses in the bac- 
calaureate program. Many of 
their spouses face many dif- 
ficulties in accompanying the 
student nurses to Florida for a

hospitals wrote to the college, 
recommending that the Orlan- 
do requirement be dismissed 
since leaving a job posed pro- 
blems for both the hospital and 
the students. 

The A.S. program, however, 
will remain unchanged. The 
college feels that it is important 
for the nursing student to spend 
time in an Adventist hospital, 
a primary reason for sending 
them to Orlando. 

Also, the clinical space 
available in Chattanooga is too 
tight due to the competition 
between other college nursing

Non-commercial, Fine arts 
radio station FM90.5 WSMC 
will conduct its Classic Celebra- 
tion November 10 - 20. The 
"Celebration" is the public 
radio station's annual fund 
drive to generate financial sup- 
port from its listeners for the 
coming year. 

Each year this listener sup- 
port is needed to keep programs 
like NPR's "Morning Edition" 
and "All Things Considered," 
"Adventures In Good Music 
with Karl Haas," "Firing 
Line," "Monitoradio," 
"Business Times, the 
Philadelphia Orchestra, Sin- 
fonia, the Chicago Symphony, 
New Releases, the Chattanooga 
Symphony, and Nocturne on 
FM90.5's airwaves. 

"As a result of our previous 
drive we maintained most of 

the programs you enjoy and 
even acquired a few new ones," 
says general manager Olson 
Perry. "We also installed 
lightning protection devices at 
our transmitter site." 

Perry forecasts several plans 
for the coming fiscal year. 
First, funds collected from 
listeners during the Classic 
Celebration will be used to 
maintain the broadcast of pro- 
grams the public wants to hear 
and keep the station on the air 
each day for another year. 
Secondly, Perry says, FM90.5 
must soon replace an aging pro- 
duction console and two tape 
recorders. This need alone will 
cost $20,000. 

FM90.5 is the oldest non- 
commercial radio station in 
Chattanooga--on the air since 
1961. It joined National Public 

Radio as a charter member in 
1970, and it was the first radio 
station in a seven-state region to 
acquire satellite-receiving 
capability in 1980. 

Program director Todd Par- 
rish urges the public to call or 
write in their pledges for the 
Classic Celebration early. 
"With everybody pitching in 
we can celebrate another full 
year of high-quality programs 
and hopefully reduce the 
number of on-air interruptions 
during your favorite 
programs." g 

The event will of ficially begin " 
at 9 p.m. November 10, and the 
telephone number to make a 
tax-deductible contribution 
during the Classic Celebration 
is (615) 396-2320. 

Go Ahead, Procrastinate! 

3 What do you have to do tonight? If you're a typical student 
you probably have to study for a quiz, start preparing for a test, 
finish an assignment, and begin to wonder how many Sundays 
you have left before your research project needs to be turned in. 
If you are an unusual student you are ready for a quiz, have been 
reading your book aU along so you don't need to study for a test, 
finished your assignment in class while the teacher was lecturing, 
and had your research project done three days after the teacher 
assigned it. Now which student's shoes would you rather be in? 

I would rather be the first student. It really bothers me to be 
part of such a fast paced society. I'm not the type to study ten 
hours every day, be in six clubs, be an RA in the dorm, and be 
class president all at the same time. Sure those things are nice, 
but one at a time! I sometimes find myself running pretty fast 
(people to go, places to see, things to do), but then I stop and 
ask myself "for what?" It sometimes depresses me when I think 
of life as a secular person might look at it. I'm going to college, 
so I can get a good job, so I can raise a family, so I can send 
them to college, so they can get a good job, so they can raise a 
family. . . You get the picture? 

What has happened to our world in the last one hundred years? 
We have become advanced in technology, computers have entered 
the scene, transportation has changed incredibly, communication 
is lightning fast. They call this progress. I call it a tragic waste. 
I would like to visit grandma in horse and wagon and live in the 
forest. I guess I'd like to live with the Amish. When society is 
so fast paced that we began to lose sight of why we're moving 
so fast, it's time to slow down. 

I have a research paper due in a couple of weeks. 1 haven't 
begun work on it yet. I'll probably stay up till 3 a.m. the night 
before getting it done. But I don't have time to do it before then. 
There are some people that need to be visited, a friend that needs 
to be talked to, a date to go on, a football game to play. I'll get 
old, friends will move, people will die, and I don't want to be 
a person that says I should have played that game, made more 
friends, visited that person. No, I want to feel that I've lived a 
rewarding life. So go ahead, procrastinate!

comments are requested by

Dear Editor 

I would like to thank the ad- 
ministration, cafeteria, and 
especially Dean Schlisner and 
Mr. Spears for their support 
two weekends ago. You really 
helped make rough times a lit- 
tie bit easier for us all. Thank 
you for the help and true chris-

Happy Birthday President Wagner! 

Last week during the 
November 1, Thursday lunch 
hour the "surprise" that 
originally had been part of the 
Fall Festival activities 
materialized. But rather than 
the student body being the reci- 
pients of the surprise, our Presi- 
dent, Dr. John Wagner, was 
the receiver of it. A surprise 
birthday party, with a birthday 
cake and gift included, was 

thrown for him in the cafeteria. 

Those students who eat at 
12:00 were privileged to have a 
slice of the large birthday cake 
and to watch Dr. Wagner's 
reactions as he opened his gift. 
Compliments of the Southern 
College Student Association, 
the President was given a 
"Chicago Pneumatic '/2-inch 
Impact Wrench." 

In appreciation for the 

"pleasant surprise," 
Wagner wishes to thank both 
the student body and the SA. 
"What a neat surprise!" he 
says. "Thank you so very much 
for the kind words, cards, and 
'just right* gift. I'm thankful 
for the privilege of serving here 
at SC and having so many great 
students and faculty. Thank 
yo.u." , v , „., (iiuidks

Blood Assurance Drive Continues 

Joel Fegarido 

Southern College has hold of 
a good thing. But many 
students here do not realize the 
importance or do not even 
know about the free "insurance 
plan" they receive through 
Blood Assurance. 

Blood Assurance has given 
and will continue to provide 
life-sustaining blood free, to 

any student who might some- 
day need blood, if 25 percent or 
more of the studnet body 
donates blood. In addition, 
donor's immediate family are 
also covered for one year. 

Back in 1970, when Blood 
Assurance was first formed, the 
need was seen to l)promote the 
recruitment of enough healthy 


volunteer blood donors to 
tually cover all the needs of this 
area and 2) provide the

I Deserve Better 

Gordon Bietz 

A parable, if you please: 
Once upon a time there was a 
great preacher who died. He 
went to St. Peter at the pearly 
gates to gain entrance to heaven 
and found, when he arrived, 
that there was a long line of 
people waiting in front of St. 
Peter's desk. St. Peter seemed 
to be taking his time in talking 
to the people. The great 
preacher was very impatient. I 
could organize this line better 
than this; why, I could get these 
people taken care of in no time, 
he thought to himself. 

He went to the head of the 
line to talk to St. Peter and was 
told by the helping angels to go 
back and wait in line. "This is 
ridiculous," he told the angel 
that was by him, near the back 
of the line. "Why, when 1 was 
on the earth I never waited in 

lines. I had secretaries and 
church members to do things 
for me. My church was better 
organized than this." The angel 
smiled and said nothing. 

Mr. Great Preacher began 
looking around at the people in 
line with him. He hadn't notic- 
ed them before. Most of them 
were obviously problem people. 
Many were not dressed in 
clothes as nice as his, and some 
of them looked like folks he 
had seen on earth waiting in 
line for a handout. Some of the 
people were obviously very 
uneducated. It became obvious 
to him that there had been some 
mistake-he must be in the 
wrong line. 

He went up to the front of 
the line again to ask whether 
this weren't the wrong line. 
"Don't you have a line for 

those of us who have been 
Christians all our lives? I mean, 
it is obvious that some of those 
in this line are latecomers to the 
cause. Do you know how long 
I have preached this message? 
I have preached to hundreds 
and thousands. Certainly you 
have a faster line where the 
registration procedures are not 
so long-a line for the full- 

He was politely told that he 
was in the right line. So he 
returned to his place. He was 
getting more and more impa- 
tient at how things were being 
handled, and most important, 
how he was being handled. 

He managed to wait rather 
impatiently for about fifteen 
minutes until he noticed that St. 
Peter ws not even calling peo- 
ple in the order that they were 

standing in line. He didn't do 
anything until an obviously 
very uninfluenual man was call- 
ed to the head of the line. The 
man had been standing behind 
him. This was too much. He 
simply was not used to being so 
overlooked-and after all his 
work! Why, most of the people 
going in front of him didn't 
have one tenth the knowledge 
of heaven and theology that he 
had. And he was sure that they 
hadn't converted as many peo- 
ple as he had. In his frustration 
he suddenly saw another line. 
Funny, he thought to himself, 
why didn't I see that before? 
From where he was standing, 
the line looked as if it was mov- 
ing more rapidly, and people in 
it looked much more distin- 
guished. He quickly switched 

Senate Meets for 3rd Consecutive Week 

One of the angels there rec- 
ognized him immediately and 
said, "Why, Mr. Great Preach- 
er, it certainly is our pleasure to 
have you here. You are too im- 
portant to stand in line-let me 
usher you to the head of the 

Why, this is more like it, Mr. 
Great Preacher thought to 

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

Korea, Mexico, Japan, 

Micronesia, India, and, of 

course, the good old USA, were 

represented as well. 
While eating, guests were 

treated to many different forms 

of entertainment. A slide

many of the students entertain-

James Wheeler were all a part 
of the entertainmant. 

Those in charge felt that the 
attendance was the best ever 
and were hoping to reach their 
$2,000 profit goal. The money 
will be going toward defraying 
expenses of the student mis-

but other students and 
members of the community 
contributed their time and

The fair received even further

SC Student Relives Europe 

Stan Hobbs 
Monday, July 9, 1984,11:45 

a.m., along with my fellow tour 
members 1 was boarding Delta 
flight 15 at the Frankfurt am 
Main Flughaven. Homeward 
bound, 1 had just completed a 
"once in a lifetime" experience. 
As I thought back over the past 
seven weeks, I wondered if 1 
would ever return to Europe, 
but even if I did, I knew it 
would not be the same as this 
first time. The time, the places, 
the people would all be dif- 
ferent. This tour was over, I 
knew, but the very fact that it 
could not be repeated, ensured 
that it would not be easily 
forgotten. Its special memories 
would always remain as a 
verifiable "dream come true."

New behind the scenes in the 
Southern College's cafeteria 
this year is Chang Kwon Kim. 
Chang, who is Korean by na- 
tionality, is the school's new 
chef. After graduating from 
Korean Junior College, Chang 
taught elementary church 
school. He began to cook pro- 
fessionally when he came to the 
United States. 

Chang's first cooking job 
was with a German company in 
San Fransisco. While working 
for Denny's Restaurant in 
Sacramento, he passed the 
California Board for chefs. 
After moving to the East Coast, 
he worked as a chef, head 
cook/supervisor in various 
hotels in Atlanta, including the 
Fairmont Hotel, the Holiday 
Inn, the Hyatt Regency, and 
the Hilton Hotel. 

Chang says his specialties are 
Chinese food and German 
food. He and his cooking have 
been featured in the Atlanta 


Chang states that his biggest 
problem has been persuading 
his employers to let him have 
Sabbaths off. This temptation 
was related to the chance for 
promotion. Chang explains 
that there is a five level hierar- 
chy, from Cook to Executive 
Chef. Advancement required 
working on the Sabbath. 

Also a religion student here, 
Chang is preparing to become 
a minister to his people. He 
believes that sharing Jesus with 
those who don't know Him is 
the most important thing in life; 
as he puts it, "Seventy years is 
too short." His goal is to 
become a minister to the three 
quarters of a million Korean 
people here in the U.S., only 
about 8 thousand of whom are 
Seventh-day Adventist. 

Chang's family consists of 
his wife, also a teacher and a 
cook, two daughters, and t

British Baroness Visits Southern 

The Mad Hatter 

'oni King 

Some people are collectors, 
Rod then there are some who 
lollect hats. Dean Ron Qualley 
is one of them. Only he doesn't 
^ist collect any old hat-it must 
bill. The number, the 
ngth, or the color of the bill 
loesn't matter just as long as 
hat has at least one. He has 
jouble billed, sword billed, 
i helicopter hat, an 
iephant skin hat from Zim- 
ibwe, a Russian hat and the 
.vorite one--a blue hat from 
435th Airforce Squadron in 
Mine, Germany. 
His first hat was a 1969 San 
ancisco Giants cap and his 
recent hat is from the 
World's Fair, given to him by 
Etacy Christman, the daughter 
pf Dean Reed Christman. 
| The collection didn't start 
hobby, but it developed 
e when the Qualley's 
loved from the West Coast to 
issouri, and Mrs. Qualley 
) chuck the hats he had 
already picked up from dif- 
ferent sporting events. Dean 
Bualley couldn't bear to part 
nith them, so he carted them 
Hong and used them to decor- 
Hte his office. The dorm guys 
Began asking if he had this hat 
Br that hat until his collection 
Bf 20 grew: to-the- present num- 
Ber of 522 with 490 of them in 
his office now. 

Recently the office hats have 
been reorganized by Derrick 
Richardson and Charles 
Schnell, who grouped them in- 
to categories: overseas, schools, 
golf, army, Olympics, diesel, 
baseball, and football. Each 
one is listed according to 
whether it was bought, don- 
ated, or found. Qualley states, 
"Now I have only the ones I 
need in my office." 

Although Dean Qualley has 
never worn them all, he does 
wear one almost every day, the 
most used one being a Detroit 
Tigers hat-like Magnum wears- 
-"for his wife's sake." His wife 
wishes he would collect some- 
thing more valuable, but one 
never knows if this collection 
will be someday. 

Qualley relates that there is a 
man in Florida who has enough 
hats to cover a football field 
row by row, but Dean Qualley's 
goal for now is 1 ,000 hats by 
July 1, 1985. He doesn't think 
that he will make it, but he's 
going to give it a try. He would 
like to thank all those who have 
donated to his collection so far, 
and who have saved him a lot 
of money. 

One thing is for sure-he'U 
always keep the sun out of his 
eyes and won't have to worry 
about a sunburned head if he 
should ever go bald.

Lady Carolyn Cox, an active 
member of the House of Lords 
in Great Britain, found the 
reception of her short stay at 
Southern as "most heart war- 
ming" and the "ethos of the 
college a pleasant one." 

In turn, students and 
teachers found her friendly and 
gracious as a person and spell- 
binding as a lecturer. Mostly 
faculty attended her 4 o'clock 
lecture on the similar problems 
and challenges of education in 
Britain and America. One of 
the problems, according to 
Lady Cox, is falling scholastic 
standards; for example, one 
fourth of London's student 
leaders cannot multiply. 

Although not shared by the 
American educational system, 
the political use of the 
classroom "is a growing pro- 
blem in some English schools" 

informed Lady Cox. For teach- 
ing the traditional views of 
British society, Lady Cox was 
one time knocked off her chair 
and her pupils were subjected 
to vehement abuse by radical 
students. "We must take 
seriously these problems, not 
run away from them," urged 
Lady Cox. 

After a short reception 
followed by a dinner in her 
honor, the Baroness spoke at a 
7 o'clock joint worship. In 40 
short minutes, she took the 
students on a mini trip behind 
the Iron Curtain, relating her 
experience of taking medical 
supplies into Poland. Accord- 
ing to Lady Cox, the needs are 
so great in Poland, that the 
Polish consider themselves not 
the third world but the fourth

that despite their underprivileg-

humorous. They joke about the >^P

"Lady Cox inspired us," 
commented one student. 
Another student said, "Al- 
though faced with the depres- 
sion and problems of the under- 
privileged, she still manages to 
maintain an untarnished gen- 
uine sweetness." 20 to 30 
students responded to her in- 
vitation to have a "bit of a 
chat" after her lecture. 
Students were still waiting an 
hour and a quarter afterwards 
when she had to run to catch 
her plane. 

Lady Cox has been touring 
America, discussing her ex- 
periences and findings in educa- 
tion and in Poland, concerns of 
both Britain and America.

had also acquired a better ap-

Another Look at 
^> Thanksgiving 

The Thanksgiving vacation starts early for most of us. By 5:00 
pioS Tuesday the majority of Southern Cd«£££ 
will be on their way home or will have already reached their 
ta Nations. We wil/be enjoyig home-cooked meals for a chan , 
especiaUy on Thanksgiving day. It's that scene rtiat generaU, 
comes to my mind when I think of Thanksgiving. Th. one hoi. 
day for me, in the past, has been a time to overeat, a time to be 
a glutton without worrying about the aftereffects. The same 
mostly true for a majority of the students on campus. And while 
His nothing wrong with thinking about a table full of de too- 
delights, I believe that it is important to reflect also on the ongmal 
meaning of Thanksgiving. 

The first Thanksgivings were actually harvest celebrations 
Farmers and their families would give thanks and prayers to God 
for the bountiful harvest of the season. For that reason, 
Thanksgiving is still held in the Fall. Usually a hearty meal was 
served during these celebrations, but the emphasis was always on 
giving thanks. . 

A couple weeks ago the gist of this column was on the impor- 
tance of letting each other know that we appreciate each other. 
During the Thanksgiving season, we let God know that we ap- 
preciate Him. Although this act should be an everday occurrance, 
this holiday allows those who forget also to thank God. 1 he 
Thanksgiving holiday then is a time for all of us to remember our 
Creator and His blessings. 

Yet some individuals will look at their immediate surroundings 
and decide that they have nothing to thank God for. Not all of 
our experiences give us the current day's equivalent of the "boun- 
tiful harvests" that our forefathers had. However, I believe that 
if one were to search deeply enough, he would find something 
to be appreciative for, even if there is only one hobby, one item, 
or one person that an individual enjoys, then that person or ob- 
ject is enough to thank God for. 

In the next week, those small blessings, along with the larger 
ones, will be brought before the Creator and given thanks for by 
many people. We too should be part of that group.

What is Essential is Invisible to the Eye 

book Living, Loving and Lear- 
ning, asks the question, "Are 
you truly the you of you? Or 
are you the you that other peo-

they make a profession of it.

nonsense? But we use it, 
because if we don't we're afraid 
the people around us are going 
to leave us on the dock for not 
using a certain kind of 
deodorant. And the boat will 
come back if we start using it. 

In looking for our "keys," 
we might sacrifice self and 
search for ourselves in the light 
of someone else's opinion of 
who we should be. Sometimes 
this is called love. 

Heritage Singers Seek Soprano 

The Heritage Singers, a well 
i Adventist gospel singing 
group, is searching for a 
loprano. A letter has been 
istributed to Adventist college 
lewspapers in hopes that a 
nger might be located. Some 
ualifications are outlined in 
e open letter. "(The soprano) 
jeeds to be experienced and in- 
ferested in traveling around the 

world," the letter reads. "She 
must also be dedicated to the 
ministry of music, as this is the 
purpose of the Heritage 
Singers." The letter continues 
by stating that the group is go- 
ing to travel throughout the 
United States and has schedul- 
ed a trip to the Far East in 
January. Anyone interested in

One of the best definitions of 
love comes to us from Saint- 
Exupery, the French 
philosopher who says that, 
"Perhaps love is the process of 
my leading you gently back to 
yourself." Not to whom I want 
you to be, but to who you are. 

Dr. Buscaglia adds to that by 
saying, "If you want to know 
me, you've got to get into my 
head and if I want to know 
about you, I can't say, 'She is 
fat. She is thin. She is a Jew. 
She is a Catholic. For she is far 
more than that."' The loving 
individual frees himself from 
"labels." He says, "No more." 

But first we must love 
ourselves enough to accept all 
that is in us, for we are each 
unique. From the common 
ground which we share with 
everyone on this planet, grows 
a crop of unique individuals. 

Perhaps the essence of 
education is to cultivate the soil 
of this earth to prepare us with 
the understanding, from loving 
hands, that help us to discover 
our uniquenesses, to teach us 
how to develop it, and then to 
show us how to give it away.

change people" 

The following poem helps to 
illustrate the price of putting 
off-especially putting off car- 
ing about people we really love 
and appreciate. The poem is 
called Things You Didn't Do. 
Remember the day I borrowed 

your brand new car and I 

dented it? 
And remember the time I 

dragged you to 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? 
I 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 I for- 
got to tell 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 pro- 
tected me. 
There were lots of things I 
wanted to make up to you 
when you returned from 
But you didn't. 

Seven words that stand out in 
my mind are these: "Facts 
don't change people, relation- 
ships change people." 

We must be the friend in our 
relationships that help others 
find that "key." Be the love 
that gently leads them back to 

Uohn 4:8 says that, "He 
who does not love does not 
know God; For God is love." 
God leads us back to the 
darkness of self where, in the 
light of the love we have learn- 
ed, He shows us who we are. 
"Facts don't change peo- 
ple." It takes a personal rela- 
tionship with Christ for He is 
the "Key" to self. He is the love 
that leads us gently back to 

While men look on the out- 
ward appearance, God looks on 
the heart. 

For you see, what is essential 
is invisible to the eye. 




We the People 

Where Do We 
^ Go From Here? 

SC Names New Development Associate 

Russell Duerksen 

Now that all the votes have 
been counted, all the accep- 
tance and concession speeches 
made, and now that those of us 
who stayed up until 2:45 a.m. 
watching the returns come in 
have recovered from the 
headaches we so richly deserv- 
ed, we can begin to analyze the 
significance and trends of the 
19S4 elections. 

Although this past election 
appears to have been a tremen- 
dous vindication of the conser- 
vative philosophy, with Reagan 
winning more electoral votes 
than has ever been done before, 
the majority of other facts seem 
to indicate that this election did 
not reveal the existence of a ma- 
jor realignment in American 
public opinion. There are many 
valid comparisons that can be 
drawn between this election and 
the reelection of President 
Eisenhower in 1956. Then, as 
now, there was an immensely 
popular incumbent president 
who was reelected by a tremen- 
dous margin. However, 
Eisenhower's success did not 
carry over into the Congress, 
where a highly liberal. 
Democratic constituency was 
elected. This situation also has 
appeared this year. The 
Republicans had a net loss of 
two seats in the Senate, result- 
ing in a much more liberally- 
oriented Senate; neither did 
they gain control of (he House, 
acquiring only fourteen seats. 

where a gain of 25 to 35 had 
been expected. 

So then, what conclusions 
can we draw from last Tues- 
day's election? The president 
and his supporters may claim a 
broad mandate for his goals 
and idealogy, but this is not en- 
tirely accurate. American 
voters, while giving Reagan a 
vote of confidence on him as an 
individual, showed their reser- 
vations regarding his policy and 
idealogy when they elected a 
liberal Congress to serve as a 
check upon him. Reagan may 
attempt to repeat the heady 
days of early 1981 in the early 
months of his second term;

Reagan's election may appear

in the final analysis it does not 
signify a shift in attitude by the 
American populace. Reagan,

As one travels away from

The Andrews University 
biology department will spon- 
sor a South Pacific biological 
tour from August 28 to 
December 11, 1985. 

Only 16 people can go and 
the group must be formed and 
final reservations jnade by 
March 1985. Dennis 
Woodland, professor of botany 
at Andrews and one of the tour 
directors, recommends that ap- 
plication be made before 
December 1984. 

Up to 12 college credits may 
be earned during the 13 weeks 
of travel and study in Hawaii, 
Australia, New Zealand, and 
Tahiti. During these springtime 
weeks in Australia the group 
plans to visit the Great Barrier 
Reef, tropical rain forests, cen- 
tral deserts including Ayre's 
Rock, Perth in southwest 
Australia. Adelaids, 

Melbourne, Canberra and the 
Sydney and Brisbane areas. 
Both north and south islands of 
New Zealand, where unique 

botany and birds are found, 
will be included in the tour. 

By utilizing modest facilities 
and camping out in modern 
campgrounds the costs will be 
held as low as possible. Besides 
air travel from the west coast of 
North America, 8-10,000 miles 
of surface travel is planned by 
rental vehicles. Total fees in- 
cluding transportation, lodg- 
ing, side trips and tuition will be 
about $4,300. The cost of food 
will be on an individual basis 
and should be quite nominal 
(about $400)/* Woodland said. 

Woodland and Dr. Asa 
Thoresen of the biology depart- 
ment at Andrews will lead the 
tour. Courses offered will be 
ornithology for five credits, 
biogeography, five credits, and 
two credits are available for 
special projects. Tuition 
charges are fiat rate of $1,100 
(included in the $4,300). For 
application contact the biology 

members agreed to chip in their 
dimes and nickels when needed 
instead of collecting dues. 

The math club will assemble 
again Thursday, Nov. 15 at 
7:00 p.m. in Daniels Hall, room 
MI. Fifteen students attended 
the last meeting and the club 
anticipates a larger attendance 
this coming meeting. Elections 
will be held during the Nov. 15 
meeting to determine the club 
president, vice-president, and 
secretary. Come with your 
ideas for a name and logo. 
Worship credit will be given.

Jerry Russell 

This week marked the open- 
ing of the volleyball season. 
More importantly it marked the 
beginning of the B-league 
volleyball season. 

I know, all you A-league 
jocks and jockettes are pro- 
bably saying, "Hey, what's go- 
ing on here. Isn't A-league the 
superior league?" Well, in an 
informal poll which had one 
person as its sample (me), it was 
found that the only people who 
thought of A-league as the bet- 
ter league was A-leaguers 
themselves. Let's face it. Why 
should we as fans feed the egos 
of these few who call 

themselves the select? By the 
time a volleyball match was 
over, most of them wouldn't be 
able to get their heads out the 
gym door. Another reason: 
who wants to see bump-set- 
spike, bump -set-spike for an 
hour and a half? 

So come on sports fans, 
come over and watch B-league 
where the action is more like 
carry-double hit-missed spike. 
Let the A-league play with

Senior Challenge: Become a Responsible Alumnus 

Reinhold E. Smith 

As a Senior it is your respon- 
sibility to start thinking about 
becoming an alumnus, a 
responsible alumnus, one who 
cares enough to sacrifice for the 
Christian education of our 

After one paragraph you're 
saying, "Is this guy crazy?" If 
you're like me, you will pro- 
bably graduate owing someone 
money: GSL, NDSL, the bank, 
parents and/or the school. So 
why would you want to con- 
tribute to your already growing 
debt? The reason lies in the fact 
that a Christian education is the 
single-most important sacrifice 
we can make. 

Teachers aren't exempt. 
How many of you teachers and 
staff belong to the "Committee 
of 100?" Every teacher, staff 
person, administrator, and 
alumnus should belong! Com- 
mittee of 100 is a "group of 
concerned individuals and 
alumni who donate at least five 
hundred dollars a year." 

As Adventists, we don't 
smoke, drink, or waste our 
money on too much nightlife, 
so wouldn't that put us ahead 
financially? According to U.S. 
News and World Report, we 
have the wealthiest members 
per capita of any church. We as 
a church stress the importance 
of education, and thus we have 
more professional members 
making better salaries. 

If you think I'm insinuating 
that as a senior you should start 
thinking about giving five- 
hundred dollars a year, you're 
right! Let me show you how 
easy this can be: If you smok- 
ed 1 Vi packs of cigarettes per 
day (the national average) you 
would spend about $550.00 a 
year, and that doesn't even in- 
clude drinking. 

If it were not for the alumni, 
the real cost of our education 
would be about $15,000. Who 
could afford that? Who can af- 

ford $8,000? According to San- 
ford Ulmer, the individual who 
had the vision to suggest the 
ambitious undertaking of the 
endowment fund, fifty-percent 
of Southern College students 
come from homes that have an- 
nual incomes of less than 
$10,000 per year." 

In 1980 Mr. and Mrs. San- 
ford Ulmer stopped to see his 
alma mater, and decided to 
help students because as Mr. 
Ulmer put it, "There are plen- 
ty of buildings on the campus, 
and that's nice, but they don't 
have enough students in them. 
But they will now if I can help 

In four short years the 
Ulmers have seen the Endow- 
ment Fund grow to nearly six 
million dollars to "help defray 
tuition costs not to build 

According to Ulmer, Dr. 
Barrow stated: "If the tuition 
would drop $1,000 next year, 
approximately 200 more 
students would be able to at- 
tend who are not attending 
now." And with 200 students, 
the over-all budget would 

When asked the question, 
why don't Adventists support 
their schools like Catholics 
do?Bill lies, Chairman of the 
Committee of 100, responded, 
"Adventists act poor, think 
poor, and spend poor. We 
don't perceive ourselves as rich. 
Christ is coming soon, and yet 
we, as a church, seem far too 
interested in possessions, in- 
stead of Christian education." 
As a senior, I want to 
challenge my classmates to go 
to the development office and 
pledge $500.00 dollars toward 
the Endowment Fund. 

If 300 seniors pledged 
$500.00, we would have 
$150,000, and did you know 
that BECA (Business Ex- 
ecutives Challenge Alumni) will 

match it? It then becomes 
$300,000 or 300 scholarships of 
$ 1 ,000 for students next 
year-300 students who might 
not otherwise have the oppor- 
tunity to attend here. 

Seniors, why don't we 
organize a committee entitled, 
Seniors Endowment 100 and let 
this be our class gift, the best

Gary Ford Speaks in Chattanooga 

Gary Ford, younger brother 
of Zell Ford, a student here at 
Southern College, will be guest 
speaker at the Chattanooga 
First Seventh-day Adventist 
Church on Sabbath, November 
17, 1984. He is currently an 
evangelist for the Southern 
California Conference. 

As an author of two Chris- 
tian witnessing books, Gary 
recognizes the importance of 
personal Bible study. To aid 
such study he has started 
B.I.B.L.E. (Biblical Institute 

for Bible Lay Evangelism), an 
organization dedicated to per- ^^ 
sonal Bible study. V 

After the Sabbath sermon, 
he will begin a seminar that will 
cover three areas: 1. Bible 
marking methods; 2. How to 
meet opposition; 3. How to ap- 
peal for decisions. The meetings 
are scheduled as follows: 

November 17, 3-5 p.m. Sat. 

November 18, 7-9 p.m. Sun. 

November 19, 7-9 p.m. Mon.

Gymnastics Clinic 
A Success 

Slew Martin & Jerry Russell 
Once again this year our 
campus was invaded by acad- 
emy gymnasts from throughout 
the Southern Union, Virginia 
and Pennsylvania for the bi- 
annual gymnastics clinic and 
show. A total of 19 schools and 
325 gymnasts participated in 
the 4-day workshop. Coach 
Ted Evans was especially pleas- 
ed with this years clinic because 
six new teams were present, and 
he said that he felt that they 
added alot to this year's show. 
The master clinician was 
Steve Elliot from Lincoln, 
Nebraska who is world renown- 
ed in acro-sports. He won the 
gold medal in this event in 1980 
and was the first American ever 
to do so. The other clinicians 
were Keith Carter and Blue 
Holm. . 

Coach Evans speculated that 
there were nearly 2000 spec- 
tators on hand. He feels that in- 
terest in acro-sports is on the 
rise and is excited about next 
years Freshmen talent. "On the 
average two out of three teams 
present were larger than ever 
before", he said, "and it seems 
the academy coaches are ex- 
cited about there programs. We 
look forward to a strong gym- 
nastics team next year."

Satellite Operation 

Astronaut Joe Allen took hold of a satellite in history's first 
space salvage Monday. Allen held the satellite by himself for more 
than 90 minutes as Dale Gardner attached a locking frame on the 
can-shaped craft. Earlier Allen had flown out ot the satellite u s . 
ing a rocket-powered backpack. He had attached a 4-foot pole- 
like device called a "stinger" into one end of the satellite. Astroaut 
Anna Fisher, using the robot arm of the space shuttle, snared a J 
handle on the stinger and moved the satellite and Allen into the | 
cargo bay. 

Kidnap Victim Found 

Law enforcement officers from two counties joined state 
troopers last Monday in a hunt for a man who is believed to havt 
kidnapped a Georgia woman after killing her husband early Sun- 
day. The woman, Victoria C. Holbert, 32, of Augusta, Georgia, 
fled from her abductor's car early Monday at an Interstate 40 1 
truck stop west of Jackson, Tennessee. A state trooper spotted 
the car in Hardeman County several hours later and began a chase, 
The man wrecked his car and ran into some nearby woods. 

Execution Postponed 

Louisiana's governor granted a stay of execution to Robert Lee I 
Willie on Monday, a day before he was to die, but said he thinks 3 
the convicted murderer will eventually go to the state's electric!

win Edwards said of his order giving Willie's lawyers up to 10 J 
days to ask the state's Pardon Board to change his sentence from \ 
death to life in prison. Willie was scheduled to die for the H 
1980 rape-murder of 18-year-old Faith Hathaway.

Brock Hall Dedicated 

U.S. Trade Rep Speaks 

Brent Van Arsdell 

On Thursday, November 29, 
Southern College honored 
businessman and patron 
Richard A. Brock by naming a 
new 2.3 million dollar 
classroom and office building 
the "Richard Brock Hall." 
Jack McClarty, Vice President 
of Development at Southern 
College, said that Brock's par- 
ticipation in the Project 80 
Campaign as a contributor and 
a fund raiser made the project 
a success and insured the con- 
struction of Brock Hall. 
Richard Brock stated that nam- 
ing a building in his honor came 
as a surprise, but said he was 
glad to be able to help an in- 
stitution such as Southern Col- 
lege. Mr. Brock said, "I have 
friend who said if he had two 
people apply for the same job, 
he would prefer the one that 
: from Southern College 
because of their work ethic and 
the way they always try to do 
their best." Brock took the op- 
portunity to do a little pro- 
moting of Southern College's 
endowment fund drive. "Until 
n adequate endowment is pro- 
ided for this school, Southern 
College will remain in jeopar- 
dy," he said. "A 10 million 

dollar endowment program is a 
necessary thing and it must 
come from somewhere." 

In a tribute speech to Richard 
Brock, Jack McClarty said, 
"Southern College has a legacy 
of people who set out to serve 
and only coincidentally ended 
up with a building named after 

The dedication address was 
presented by a nephew of 
Richard Brock, currently the 
United States Trade Represen- 
tative, former U.S. Con- 
gressman and Senator, the 
Honorable Bill Brock. Bill 
Brock, a member of the 
cabinet, was appointed by 
President Reagan in January of 
1981 and confirmed by the 
Senate. Bill Brock is the Presi- 
dent's chief trade advisor and 
international trade negotiator. 
He spoke about the need to 
teach values and ethics along 
with basic academics. "I am 
awed at the ethical challenges 
that face my children. I watch 
the news and 1 see a man with 
an artificial heart." Bill Brock 
said he hoped that ethics will 
continue to be taught at South- 
ern College. 
, The program began in 

Ackerman Auditorium in the 
music building with the 
Southern College Band playing 
some Christmas songs. Dr. 
Wagner recognized the impor- 
tant guests and was the master 
of ceremonies. 

Brock Hall was officially 
opened with a ribbon cutting in 
which Richard Brock and O.D. 
McKee ceremonially opened the 
building. Mr. Richard Reiner, 
vice president of Finance at 
Southern College, said that the 
building was constructed at a 
reduced cost because much of 
the work was done by college 
employed work crews. The 

hand for the ribbon cutting 
with Dr. McClarty praising the 
crew and commending the 
worker who hung the doors. 

The ceremony concluded 
with a guided tour of the 
building by Mr. Reiner. 

Most of the building is in use, 
but the ground floor, which will 
house WSMC-FM, is still under 
construction. The building is a 
47,000 square foot, brick and 
glass structure designed by 
Klaus Nentwig. The ground 
floor is scheduled to be oc- 
cupied in February of 1985. 

SM Brings Home Five Korean Orphans 

1/acAr Wood 

I "A bringer of happiness" can 
I be the words that best describe 
■the job Mark Cox found 
I himself engaged in on 
| November 12. Last year Mark 
a theology major at Southern 
College, found that he would 
be able to spend a year in Korea 
as a teacher. Loving to travel 
and loving kids Mark believed 
this opportunity to be like a 
dream come true. 

Preparing for the trip was no 
problem. But like most trips it 
is very difficult to have 
everything go as planned, and 
Mark found after stopping in 
Los Angles he had been given 
the wrong type of visa. Having 
needed to receive a worker's 
visa allowing him to stay in 
Korea for 6 months before 
renewal, he had been given a 
visitor's visa only allowing him 
to stay 90 days. Arranging to 
have things taken care of later, 
he arrived in Korea August 21 . 
While (eachine, Mark was in- 
formed l at he wo u id be flown 
to Japan at the end of his 90 

days for a week while his new 
visa was transferred over. More 
complications arose and his 
scheduled week in Japan grew 
anywhere from 6 weeks to 2 
months. The idea of spending 
that much time in Japan having 
very little to do did not thrill 
Mark and he searched for a 
new idea. The suggestion of an 
orphan flight (escorting Korean 
orphans to the United States) 
was brought up to his attention 
and finding it to his liking, took 
it. After filling out forms, at- 
tending briefs and praying, 
Mark was accepted for the job. 
He was given a seat on a flight 
leaving for Memphis November 
12, just 5 days before his 
deadline to leave. 

Mark went to the Holt 
Children Service on the 9th of 
November to make sure 
everything was going to work 
out and found to his amaze- 
ment he would be escorting five 
Korean babies: three boys and 
two girls, one of which were 
over five-months old. He also 

was introduced to his co-escort 
Mrs. Choi (Chay). Although 
she spoke very little English, 
they found it easy to get along. 

On the 12th they were driven 
by van to the airport where 
Customs and Security made 
sure everything was in order. 
Then Mark and Mrs. Choi were 
on their own. 

The flight wsa all but relax- 
ing for the two escorts. Chang- 
ing and feeding seemed to be 
the main events. Upon being 
well into the flight Mark 
discovered the plane also was 
occupied by forty-eight women 
from Long Beach, California, 
who had just spent time in 
Korea and to his relief loved 
babies. The women made the 
trip a little easier. 

Landing in L.A. and depar- 
ting with one of the infants was 
a relief as well as a reward for 
him, but the pressure was still 
there. He was only half way 
home now and Mrs. Choi was 
also leaving. Mrs. Anthony, a 

Southern College Professor 
Lectures in China, Hawaii 

Dr. Ray Heffelin, currently 
on sabbatical, has been invited 
to the People's Republic of 
China from December 3 to 16 
to confer with scientists in- 
terested in the same field of 
molecular research. On Decem- 
ber 21 , he will report at the In- 
ternational Conference of 
Pacific Basin Chemical Socie- 
ties in Honolulu. Two Southern 
College students, Ken Priddy 
and Erin Sutton, are co-authors 
of the Hawaii report. 

Lectures have been schedul- 
ed at Fu-Dan University in 
Shanghai, at the University of 
Science and Technology in 
Hofei, and at the University of 
Science and Technology in Beij- 
ing (Peking). The largest por- 
tion of the time in the PRC has 
been scheduled for intensive 
conferences with two scientists 
at Hofei. The two men have 
been studying the same area as 
have Dr. Hefferlin and his 

Southern College students for 
about the same length of time. 
Contact was established in 
March of 1984. This opportuni- 
ty to collaborate has been pro- 
vided by the Southern College 
Alumni Association by means 
of a grant made to Dr. Hef- 
ferlin recently. 

The research area consists of 
the construction of periodic 
systems of molecules. It is 
known among scientists as 
"pure" research, meaning that 
it has no immediate application 
other than contributing to our d 
understanding of the basic plan 
of the universe. These periodic 
systems are based on experi- 
mental data which other scien- 
tists measure and on complex 
mathematical theory. They 
serve the same purposes as does 
the familiar chart of the 
elements: they provide a visual 
and mathematical way of fin- 


A Little Good News 

" As I sit at my desk writing this editorial a newspaper lays within 
arms' reach, proclaiming bad news as a headline and more of the 
same within its pages. The top story is the gas leak in India which 
has killed more than 1 ,000 people and injured 20,000 others. The 
article below that one has to do with a hijacking and the holding 
of hostages in Iran, The one below the Iranian story deals with 
a drug case. There are other articles on this newspaper's front 
page, painting a grim scene about the world around us. The 
editors, though, were considerate and put two color pictures, each 
dealing with a Christmas story, on the same page. 

Anne Murray, the country music singer, had a hit last year call- 
ed A Little Good News . The song is about her wishes to hear 
some good news for a change rather than the usual bad, good 
news such as ". . . and everybody loved everybody everybody 
in the good ol' U. S. A." Her wishes are idealistic—but I believe 
that more good news than bad news is possible. 

This year as editor of the Southern Accent, I have attempted 
to spread a little good news. I made it my duty to look for the 
positive aspects of this school that you were not aware of. I 
searched for general information not related to this school that 
was light in nature. If the bad news was important enough for 
everyone to know, however, then I printed it. But there hasn't 
been much of it anyway. Last year my campaign motto was "For 
a Paper You Can Be Proud Of. . ." Then the first editorial for 
the Accent was also about being proud, but being proud for many 
aspects of the school. Most of the news about Southern College 
that we have brought to you has been about something you can 
be proud of, and that is good news. 

In this our last issue of 1984, we bring you more articles about 
Southern College and its students. If this issue should help you 
remember something about this school year, let it be that the first 
half of 1 984-85 had more positive aspects about it than negative. 
The good sometimes just takes a little longer to find. And this 
fact can be a commentary about the world in general. It isn't as 
grim all the time as the papers make it out to be. The outlook 
on the world just depends on one's view of it. 

Letters. . . 


Dear Faculty and Students of 
Southern College: 

We are still searching for the 
words to express our profound 
thanks to you all for every ex- 
pression of sympathy. Your 
cards and letters bring us so 
much comfort, and please 
know that every one will be sav- 
ed and read again and again. 
For you that made the long trip 
here for Scott's funeral, we are 
so grateful. 

Each of us that knew Scott 
feels a "special" memory for a 
"special" person that we had to 
say goodbye to in October. 

The many letters and cards 
have added another memory to 
keep with us throughout our 
lives. The constant theme that 
"Scott mattered" in your lives 
will constantly keep his 
memory alive in our lives. 

We feel honored to have so 
many of you reflect so positive- 
ly on your association with 
Scott. It is a living memorial to 
his way of life and message he 
carried each day. As many of 
you said, "Scott lived life to the 
fullest", always with a smile, 
but as importantly, he shared 

that philosophy with everyone 
he could. He had the strength 
of character to influence others 
and we can use those ex- 
periences to be better people in 
our day-to-day living. 

We want you all to know 
how much Scott loved Southern 
College. We realize how many 
wonderful friends he had there, 
and we thank you for your 
friendship. He spoke often this 
year that though he missed 
home, he was still happy there 
and having a good year. 

Scott was a wonderful son 
and brother. He brought us so 
much joy and happiness and we 
are so proud of him. It has been 
said that: 

Some people come into our 
lives and quickly go. 
Some stay for awhile and leave 
footprints on our hearts, 
And we are never, ever the 

We look forward with bless- 
ed hope to that great Resurrec- 
tion morning when once again 
our family can be complete. 

Most Sincerely,

Christians Are Just Forgiven 

Melvin Campbell 

I have little or no use for 
messages on bumpers or tee 
shirts! I would like to give 
messages to the world either of 
my religious faith or politics in 
more subtle manner. Now 
mind you, I do not fault one's 
belief system, but 1, in general, 
do not care for it to be written 
e shirts or bumper stickers 
for me to read. Yet once in a 
while there comes along a 
thought glued to a bumper that 

; lots of value. For me that 

:e in a while has been once 
n my lifetime-which by the 
way encompasses the entire 
listory of bumper stickers. 

The message was simple, 
written in blue, glued to the 
left-hand side of the rear 
bumper— "Christians are not 
perfect; they are just forgiven." 
When I read that on a bumper 
iticker of the car ahead I almost 
lonked without having been 
o do so. Whoever thought 
)f that short phrase must have 

in a theologian, although I 
sure that the originator 

uld immediately give both a 

tten and oral disclaimer to 
such a title. 

Allow me to digress for a 
moment. Being a theologian, or 

I should say admitting to being 
one, can be very hazardous to 
one's well being. In fact, 
theologians are an endangered 
species at the present time in 
conservative religious com- 
munities. By theologians I refer 
to those who have formal train- 
ing in ways to think about God. 



theologians as well, but we just 
don't like to admit to such a ti- 
tle. Yet we all theologize all the 
time, usually functionally but 
seldom formally. 

I side track easily—let me get 
back to the message--"Chris- 
tians are not perfect; they are 
just forgiven "-which I think is 
a very profound theological 

Indeed this may be the very 
thing that sets off Christians 
from non-Christians- 

forgiveness. We all know, at 
least I have a pretty good idea, 
that Christians are not perfect. 
Unfortunately, all Christians 
are not forgiven either, which 
I suppose, makes them Chris- 
tians in name only. Indeed if 
you are in Christ you are a new 
creature and to me that involves 
being forgiven. 

I think that we are afraid of 

forgiveness! I really do. There 
is always the notion that if 
forgiveness is too easy then one 
will go out and sin again and 
again only to be forgiven again 
and again. Will repeated sins be 
forgiven again and again? I will 
allow the Scriptures to speak 
for themselves on that point. 
The Scriptures certainly do not 
condone a sinful life, but they 
do give the assurance that sins 
will be forgiven and that is that! 
To think that forgiveness comes 
cheaply is not to understand the 
forgiveness of God and the en- 
tire plan of salvation including 
the death of Jesus. To obtain 
forgiveness is such a simple 
thing to do or rather to attain 
from God. Yet we at times por- 
tray God as saying "I forgive 
you but. . ." I think that Jesus' 
dealing with Mary is a model of 
forgiveness for us. Christ told 
Mary that her sins were 
forgiven— it was an uncondi- 
tional statement. He also told 
her to go and sin no more, but 
that exhortation for the future 
had nothing to do with the 
forgiveness of her past sins. 
Nor may have it erased the 
social, physical, and emotional 
consequences of her sins. But 

never mind, she was sinless 
before God. And that was good 
news for Mary. 

I mentioned before that we 
are afraid of being forgiven. I 
am not quite sure as to the 
reason. But it may be tied up 
with the idea that once 
forgiveness has taken place we 
are free. This freedom then 
means that we can go about sin- 
ning willy-nilly and always ex- 
pect to be forgiven again. The 
idea of a church full of carnal 
Christians frightened those of 
us who run churches. So the 
"you are forgiven but. . ." doc- 
trine continues in our thinking. 
Yet it is this very mental 
freedom of having sins forgiven 
without any reservations on the 
part of God of deeds on our 
part that sets the Christian 
apart in this world and the 

A few months ago I was driv- 
ing the car to Chattanooga, 
contemplating forgiveness 
when the concept seemed to 
come home in full force that I 
was forgiven, and since this was 
the case I was free. In fact I 
shouted it out loud right there 
in the car on the other side of 
Missionary Ridge. Here is what 

I said: "I'M FREE, I'M 
FREE!" I said it twice with the 
exclamation mark. No matter 
what other people thought or 
surmised or speculated or voted 
or gossiped, I was free and 
forgiven. Or rather I was 
forgiven and then free. 

No, I have not gone out and 
purposely left a trail of sins to 
be enjoyed and then forgiven. 
But I have been thinking a lot 
more about the life, death, and 
resurrection of Jesus and what 

forgiveness. I really can't quite 
figure out just exactly how it all 
works, but I am accepting it 
and enjoying freedom. 

By the way, if you find any 
of those "Christians are not 
perfect; they are just forgiven" 
bumper stickers, I would like 
two of them. One for the 
bumper of the car and the other 
for the inside on the dash. It is 
one thought that merits oft-

■ Boskind White Presents Workshop On Bulimarexia 

I Bulimarexia was the subject 
I of a one-day workshop held 
I this week at Southern College 
I of Seventh-day Adventists. 
I Dr. Marlene Boskind White, 
lof Freeville, New York, spoke 
■ Tuesday (November 27) to both 
■students and guests for the 
■presentations sponsored by the 
fctudent Health Service in 
Cooperation with Student Ser- 
vices. Dr. White earned her 

Ph.D. in counseling at Cornell 
University in 1977. 

As a practicing 

psychotherapist, Dr. White has 
been involved in research and 
treatment of eating disorders 
for more than seven years. She 
has published a number of ar- 
ticles on this subject as well as 
co-authoring a book, Bulimar- 
exia: The Binge/Purge Cycle. 

Dr. White discussed the trend 

of this increasing problem. 
"The fact that 95 percent of in- 
dividuals with eating disorders 
are female has much to do with 
the relevant cultural and 
psychosocial pressures that are 
put on young women today," 
she said. "Women are expected 
to be skinnier and to be able to 
fit into the style of clothing 
worn today. Only a small 
percentage of women can look 

like the models without being 

Many women have discover- 
ed purging to be an easy way to 
control their weight, without 
realizing the adverse effects it 
plays on the whole body, accor- 
ding to Dr. White. She outlin- 
ed three levels of Bulimarexia. 
Most women personally af- 
fected see this initially as just 
another weight control

New York City Has Everything! 

A Student's Experience in the Big Apple 


La Ronda Curtis 

Art? Me take Art? I don't 
know anything about Art! You 
say we get to go to Washington 
D.C. and New York City? 
Where do 1 sign up for this 

Until Thanksgiving vacation, 
1984, 1 had been exposed to 
very little art. I do remember 
being dragged through a Van 
Gogh museum in Amsterdam 
once, but I had no idea who he 
was. No I don't want to spend 
all this time proving to you that 
i was really ignorant on this 
subject; I think you get the 
point. What I do want to get 
across to you is that I am not 
quite as ignorant now because 
I took "Art Appreciation" and 
found that art can be in- 
teresting. Now I wish that I 
could go back to Amsterdam 
and check out that Van Gogh 
museum again! 

On the night of November 
18, our art class loaded on the 
bus. We all said goodby to 
family and friends, and asked 
them to remember us during 
Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone 
on the bus was excited and the 
noise level was quite high for 
the first fifty miles, then the 
overhead lights gradually fad- 
ed and everyone slept or rested 
uncomfortably. 1 managed to 
sleep pretty well, and it seemed 
like no time had passed when 
we were in Washington, D.C. 

We all looked pretty charm- 
ing after being on the bus all 
night, so we showered at 
Takoma Park Academy and 
rushed off to our first museum 
tour. We were only going to be 
in Washington, D.C, for six 
hours, so there was no wasting 
time! Since we were scheduled 
for two museums, the Hirsh- 
horn and the National Gallery 
of Art, during that short stay, 
we really got a good taste of 
what we would experience each 
day on the trip. The other days, 
however, were not so packed 
with travels and museums. We 
had plenty of time to see 
anything we wanted to see in 
New York City. 

As we visited each museum, 
I began to recognize some of 
the names that our teacher, Mr. 
Garren, had told us about. It 
started to get exciting, because 
I felt like I was learning 
something. Now Mr. Garren, 
he is quite the professional New 
York City Tourist. The art 
group has been going to New 
York for fourteen years, and he 
has only missed two of those 
years. Whenever I wasn't sure 
what to do, I would stick with 
him, because he was always 
taking groups out to do 
something interesting. 

One of the things that 1 
found most fascinating in New 
York City was the variety of 

people. If one would stand in 
Grand Central Station, he 
would see just about every type 
of person come through in a 
matter of minutes. A lot of the 
New Yorkers were very friend- 
ly and helpful to us when they 
saw us with subway map spread 
out (typical tourist) and a look 
of confusion on our faces. In 
fact, once they got to talking to 
us, it was not easy to break off 
the conversations. 

There were some sights that 
were not so pleasant, and these 
were the looks on the faces of 
the poor people, especially the 
street people. Seeing people liv- 
ing in those conditions made 
me very thankful for the life 
that I have. It made my major 
problems seem like nothing. 

Well, we did see a lot be- 
tween museums, but the 
museums were just as in- 
teresting as the rest. If I had to 
choose my favorite museum, I 
would have to say it was the 
Cloisters. It was not the typical 
art gallery. The building is not 
crowded into the city like all the 
others. It was more like touring 
through a castle than a 
museum. I really liked the 
Metropolitan Museum of Art, 
too. It had an enormous selec- 
tion of Near Eastern Art, in- 
cluding the temple of Dendur 
from Egypt. Then there was the 
Frick Collection. This collec- 

tion was displayed in an actual 
house or I should say mansion. 
I think we all tried to imagine 
what it would be like to live in 
this house, but the dreaming 
couldn't last long, since we 
needed to take notes on the 
displayed art. It really is dif- 
ficult to say that just one place 
was my favorite. 

Our evenings were not spent 
sitting around the YMCA, our 
home for the week. Everyone 
found things to do that in- 
terested their individual tastes. 
Some went to basketball or 
hockey games, some to ballets, 
some to Broadway plays, and 
some enjoyed a brisk walk 
around Times Square or the 
ride to the top of the World 
Trade Center. There was 
enough to keep us very tired at 
night when we sank into our 

One of the most memorable 
things I did in New York City 
was going to the Macy's 
Thanksgiving Day Parade. It 
sure was cold out there, but I'm 
glad that I did it once because 
I doubt I will ever get a chance 
to do it again. 

Thanks to the hard work and 
experience of Mr. Garren, we 
were all informed of the best 
places to go in our free time. It 
was impossible for one person 
to see everyting, but we manag- 
ed to see quite a bit. We even 

had pizza in Little Italy, 
shopped the streets 
Chinatown. New York iM 

Sabbath morning we met in I 
St. Bartholomew's Church, 1th 
a beautiful old church that I 
seemed quite appropriate for I 
art students to worship in. The I 
stained glass windows and the I 
basic architecture were an ii 
spiration to us as our Sabbai 
School teacher, Dr. R 
Springett, pointed out their I 
splendor. We had a special I 
guest who lives in New York 1 
City tell us about tb 
ministry that the Seventh-daH 
Adventists are doing in the ci- 1 
ty. Overall it was a wonderful I 
way to spend our last morning 
in the Big Apple. 

By Saturday night, we were 
ready to head back to quiet 
Collegedale Our spirts were 
beginning to me 1 u\v hile we 
reflected on all the things we 
had done and seen m a week's 
time (not to mention our ex- 
haustion). It was a worthwhile j 
trip for me because I received ] 
school credit; I sot to visit a 
place I'd never been before; 1 
learned about different cul- { 
tures; I learned about different | 
people; and I know much more I 
about ART!

How does learning to read 
under a bed sound? Rather 
fun? How about hiding under 
that bed during Arab-Israeli 
shelling? Both were part of 
Diana Green's, presently a nur- 
sing student at Southern Col- 
lege, entry into formal educa- 
tion. Actually, "formal" isn't 
really an accurate description, 
From first grade through high 
school Diana has studied in 
Ethiopia, Lebanon, Cyprus, 
the U.S., Austria, Kenya. The 
majority of her schoolwork and 
her graduation in May of 1983 
have been through Home Study 
International, headquartered in 
Takoma Park, Maryland. Be- 
tween wars in Jordan and 
Lebanon, and evacuations to 
Ethiopia and Cyprus, Diana 
developed part of her unique 
outlook, "Sure, I was scared 
for my life. But it turned out to 
be a blessing. I realized my ut- 
ter helplessness. When you 
recognize that being scared does 
no good, you depend on the 
^ Lord in a very real way." 
™ Diana completed 8th grade 
and part of 9th grade in Atlan- 
ta, then headed out for Kenya 
with her family. There she tack- 
led Algebra, Literature, 

Geometry, History, and typing 
all by herself. Imagine what the 
postal system may have thought 
about the frogs and grasshop- 
pers she had to dissect for 

Diana studied at a German- 
speaking school in Austria for 
11th grade, then finished 12th 
by home study. Throughout she 
made straight A's except for 
one B in English Literature. 

Diana has been chosen as 
Home Study International's 
Graduate of the Year. She has 
also been recommended for 
recognitions as Graduate of the 
Year by the national Home 
Study Council, an association 
of 75 accredited member 
schools in the United States. 
For this she will receive an 
expense-paid trip to 
Washington, D.C. to attend a 
Congressional reception at the

Ex-cons likely to be cons again 

The Justice Department stated Sunday that of the prisoners 
releasd from prison more than a quarter of them return to prison 
within 2 years and nearly a third are back within 3 years. They 
received these figures after a study of 14 selected states. Infor- 
mation from nine of these states showed the biggest majority 
returned during the second half of the first year of release. The 
Bureau of Justice Statistics stated it is "Suggesting the need for 
maximum post release correctional support" during that period. 

Gambler involved with drug ring and prostitution 

William Condon Graham, a gambler who was shot to death 
2 months ago by his ex-wife, wsa involved in more than gambl- 
ing. The 67-year-old professional gambler was also invloved in 
organized prostitution and is suspected in having ties to a drug 
ring called "The Company." At the time of his death, Graham 
was under a Memphis federal indictment on charges of extortion 
and arson in an alleged conspiracy to destroy competing vending 
machine businesses in west Tennessee. His criminal record span- 
ned about 20 years. 

Deficit on Top 

Treasury Secretary Donald Regan and two Republican Senate 
leaders agreed Sunday that reducing the deficit, including cuts in 
defense spending, must take precedene over tax-system overhaul 
when Congress grapples with federal finances next year. Appear- 
ing on This Week With David Brinktey on ABC-TV, Regan said 
"Deficit reduction is by far the most serious problem facing the 
administration", and the Congress Senator Leader Robert Dole 
stated on NBC-TV's Meet the Press,"We don't want to throw 
out a tax bill on the floor until we've had some, action." 

Gas Leak 

Poisonous gas spewed from an underground storage tank in 
central India early Monday morning. The result of the gas was 
approximately 300 deaths by the afternoon with the death toll ex- 
pected to rise. 2000 Indians were hospitalized. The gas is said to 
have come from a union carbine pestiside plant. 

Teacher's Strike 

Teachers missed class in Chicago Monday and more than 
430,000 students had the day off. The teachers are on strike for 
the 7th time in 15 years. The Union and the board are to have 
negotiated late Monday afternoon. 


Sports Corner 
Hefty's\fe Stocking 



Steve Martin 

For those of you who 
expecting the new sport's com- 
mentary, Hefty's Bag, there has 
been a slight change in plans 
due to the holiday season. This 
week we look at the Top 10 
Women in volleyball. 

But before that, I want to 
answer one question that I have 
been asked all week which is, 
"Why are you doing your com- 
mentary on this subject?" 
There are two very simple 
reasons why. First, 1 feel that 
women do not get enough 
recognition in sports at 
Southern College. Secondly, to 
shoot down the expanded egos 
of the 

off my chest, here's my top ten 
women in volleyball. 

1 . Loretta Messer 

2. Robin McClure 

3. Darla Jarrett 

4. Melanie Boyd 

5. Raqual Revis 

6. Patty Wycoff 

7. Audrey Gibson 

8. Karen Schwotzer 

9. Pauline James 
10. Nancy Holness 

In ranking these top ten 
women, I discovered something 
very interesting. The top two, 
Messer and McClure, played on 
their public high school volley- 
ball team. In view of women's 
"wanna be" sports status in sports, in some of our 
schools, is there a lesson to be 
) say, most men feel learned here? The rest of the 
Oman's only place in top ten women and many I 
the bleacher, cheering have not mentioned, are fine 
ictory, athletes and this sports writer 
would encourage more par- 
ticipation in our sports pro- 
gram. Remember this girls, 
there is one sports reporter on 
your side. Let's not forget this

18 and 19.

that there are many fine women

seed in the tournament, emerg- 
ed victorious in SC's 3-man 
volleyball special on Sunday. 
Carlson's squad of himself, 
Alex Lamourt, and Bob 
Folkenberg enjoyed success 
throughout the day as they 
went undefeated. 

Carlson began the day with 
a forfeit victory over Reg Rice's 
team, then defeated Bryan

and 15-11. Hartle then dumped 
Tim Tullock's team 15-5, 13-15 
and 15-3 to reach the finals and 
a rematch with Carlson. 

Hartle, with teammates Fred 
Roscher and Lori Roscher were

SIGI 1984-85 is Updated 

November, 1984 

Computerized information 
on thirteen career options has 
been added to the 1984 updated 
version of SIGI (pronounced 
"Siggy")--the System of In- 
teractive Guidance and Infor- 
mation. Available on campus in 
the [career planning office...] 
SIGI is a career decision- 
making and information system 
for students that becomes more 
valuable each year because of 
its annual updates. 

This year SIGI has added 
several emerging occupations 
ENTIST, a future-oriented oc- 
cupation applying computers to 
the knowledge explosion; 
NURSE-MIDWIFE, a modern, 
specialized offshoot of nursing, 
established to help prospective 
mothers and their families have 
their babies by the latest, 
natural methods; NUCLEAR 
time career interests of art and 
I music students); and others. 

This year you can also check 
out three medical specialties 
cupations are in increasing de- 
mand and are among the 
highest paid medical specialties. 

This year you can investigate 
the difficult route to becoming 
FICER or learn how to use 
your language and business 

skills as an INTERNA- 
IST-^ rapidly growing area of 
activity of American business. 
SWORKER round out the list 
to thirteen. 

You can also find out what 
has happened to the high- 
deamed occupations of a year 
or so ago--COMPUTER PRO- 
ENGINEER, or the once ultra- 
desirable careers of LAWYER 
or PHYSICIAN. You can 
check for increased salaries, or 
look towards the future supply 
and demand. Every occupation 
has been checked for salary and 
outlook changes since a year 

These important additions 
and those added last year- 

TECHNICIAN and others, can 
give you a range of up-to-date 
choices not available in any 
other computerized career 
guidance system. 

It is worth noting that all the 
SIGI occupations have been 
chosen to give a wide represen- 
tation of career fields of interest 
to college students, college- 
bound students, returning 
students, and to those who have 

already earned a degree. They 
cover over 300 possibilities- 
including six computer occupa- 
tions; over 20 business or sales 
titles; 13 engineering fields; in- 
numerable allied health 
specialities; scientific and 
technical fields; and many per- 
forming arts, design, and jour- 
nalism options. 

In addition, the SIGI system 
teaches a career decision- 
making method that you can 
return to over and over again. 
You can also use the values- 
clarification and decision- 
making method to explore-on 
your own-occupations of 
special interest to you. 

SIGI gives you the oppor- 
tunity to compare three occupa- 
tions at a time, so that the 
diferences in income possibil- 
ities, outlook, security, educa- 
tion needed, and more can be 
readily contrasted side by side. 
In fact, you can ask 28 ques- 
tions for any occupation and 
receive detailed, up-to-date 
answers to every question. You 
can check the courses and pro- 
gram of study you need to take 
and then decide what seems to 
be the best decision for you. An 
advisor is available to discuss 
your plans with you. 

If you have never used SIGI , 
you should try it. If you have 
tried it before, come try it 
again, You are changing and 
growing. So is SIGI!

Senate Meets for Last Time 

Sheila Elwin 

The last senate meeting of the 
semester was held Monday 
night at 8:00. 

Senator Yapshing's devo- 
tional was followed by the S.A. 
Treasurer, who informed the 
Senate that most of the depart- 
ments are remaining on or 
under budget and things look 
good on the whole. 

After a break for the year- 
book picture, taken by Pete 
Prins, President Shim presented 
a report from the AIA presi- 
dent. The latter wishes to know 
S.C.'s general opinion about 
intercollegiate sports. Because 
of the great expense and travel- 
ling involved, Shim will obtain 
more information from AIA 
before the constituents are 

Next, a review of the S.A. 
Constitution brought about 

changes in the pre- requisites for 
the position of senator. Sug- 
gested is that a student may not 
run for senate unless he has ob- 
tained at least three hours of 
on-campus credit from South- 
ern College or five hours of 
credit from another college. 
This will be brought to the stu- 
dent body for vote at the next 
S.A. chapel. 

Senator Gershon, represen- 
ting the Orlando campus, 
graduates in December and will 
be leaving. The responsibility of 
filling a vacated seat belongs to 
the president, so Shim ap- 
pointed Ed Santana to precinct 
19 for second semester. 

After a reminder about 
voting for Senator of the Year 
by Chairman Palsgrove, Senate 
adjourned at approximately

The fourteenth annual E. A. 
Anderson Lecture Series begins 
tonight, 8 p.m., at Southern 
College of Seventh-day Adven- 
tists with a presentation by 
Albert L. Menard, executive 
vice president of Health Stream 
Corporation of Chattanooga. 

The ten-part series will be 
held for the first time in the 
multi-discipline classroom 
building, Richard Brock Hall. 
The E. A. Anderson Business 
Seminar Room is located on the 
third floor. 

Al Menard's topic is "Auto- 
mation, Management, and

flict?" His lecture, free to the 
public, will be followed by a 
question and answer period. 
For a fee, college or continuing

think it would when they first 
moved here from the Midwest. 
Lynnet, and the three chil- 
dren-Anthony, 9; Timothy, 6;

Chattanooga Boys Choir 
Sings At Southern 
College Saturday 

The Chattanooga Boys Choir 
wilt be heard in concert at 
Southern College of Seventh- 
day Adventists on Saturday 
night, January 19, at 8 pm. 

The program, a part of the 
Artist-Adventure Series, will 
take place in the Physical 
Education Center. 

The versatile group sings 
from a repertoire which in- 
cludes timeless classics and 
Broadway show tunes. "Chat- 
tanooga Choo Choo" has 
become its trademark. 

The Concert Choir is made 
up of about 50 boys under the 
direction of Everett O'Neal. By 
the time a boy becomes part of 
the Concert Choir, he has had 
at least three years of musical 
training, moving up from the 
Orientation Choir to the Train- 
ing Choir and then to the 
Preliminary Choir. 

The complete choir provides 

musical training for more than 
150 boys, between the ages of 
8 and 12, from 55 schools- 
public, private, and parochial. 
Choir members are selected by 
individual audition and 
rehearse twice a week. Each 
boy also attends the week-long 
summer music training camp 
held each year at The Universi- 
ty of the South, Sewanee. 

A charter member of the 
Allied Arts of Chattanooga 
Boys Choir, the choir was 
founded in 1954. Not affiliated 
with an instutition, the Chat- 
tanooga Boys Choir is in- 
dependently managed and 
financed as a community non- 
profit organization. 

Admission is by season pass, 
or tickets at the door: $3 for 
adults, $2 for senior citizens 
and children under 12, and 
$7.50 for family. Students may 
get in free.

■ John Brombaugh, the master 

craftsman who designed and 
built the Opus 26, arrived on 
campus January 10 to begin the 
voicing and tuning process. 
Tuning refers to adjusting the 
correct musical pitch or con- 
sonance of each pipe. Voicing 
refers to adjusting the quality 

of the sound produced. Each 
pipe will blend with all the 
others in the same rank of 

Though voicing each in- 
dividual pipe is a process that 
will take approximately six 
months to complete, Mr. 

Brombaugh is working very 
hard to have one rank of pipes 
ready to play for the Sabbath 
services on January 19. Mr. 
Brombaugh will be introduced 
to the congregation at that 
During the coming months, 

Mr. Brombaugh will also be

organ built for Renaissance and

installed in the J. Mabel Wood 
Music Building recital hall. 


The Death of a Good Year 

As 1985 came upon me I was struck by the old line "Happy 
New Year" and other seemingly emotionless phrases. People 
seemed to have a grand old time writing "1985" on their checks 
or on the top of their letters. Ministers were happy to be able to 
preach on a subject which they had more than enough material 
to write on. They graced the bulletins with titles like "How to 
Have a Great Year in 1985" and "Making Resolutions You Can 
Keep." I watched how the people in Time Square could hardly 
contain themselves until the clock struck that magical time and 
they entered into a "New Year." Even the most sober sort of in- 
dividual put on a smile for the stroke of midnight. 

I pondered all the hoopla and wondered why people were so 
happy, even eager to see 1984 pass from the scene? As I write, 
I look at a caption of one of our affiliate papers that reads "A 
Last Look at 1984." Why is everyone so willing to let 365 days 
move behind them as history? Has it disappeared from sight? 

1 suppose that there are a number of reasons why the events 
of 1984 are now thought of by most people as history. In any 
person there is a sense of pride that needs to be bolstered. A whole 
year of fond memories can also bring with it thoughts of disaster: 
a death, a business failure, a divorce. An individual will sort out 
those memories that bring meaning to his mind and those that 
are to be looked at as events to be forgotten. Thus, a boyfriend 
may try to convince his girlfriend that a blot on his record was 
something that happened way back in 1984, while in the same 
breath he reminds her of the wonderful time they had three weeks 
ago (also in 1984). 

But what satisfaction does it bring us to know we have entered 
into another year, one which will no doubt bring us similar ex- 
periences? It is all part of man's attempt to bury his past. He can 
once again lift his head with pride on January 1 because he has 
a clean slate. I believe, however, that the great minds of the past 
would tell us that our problems, failures, and hardships are to 
be met and solved as they come. Thus, when January 1 comes 
around, it won't be just a time when unresolved problems can 
be put in the past, but the previous year will be looked back on 
as a learning experience-one you don't have to be ashamed of. 

I like 1984. When I hear someone say "Look to the future, 
forget 1984!" I think they've just killed a perfectly good year.

Dear Editor, 

On the campus of Southern 
College, there's a weekend 
designated for the ladies to ask 
the men out for a date. The 
purpose of this weekend is not 
only to acquaint oneself with 
new people, but also to give the 
guys an opportunity to be ask- 
ed out, instead of the guys ask- 
ing out the girls. Also, an exam- 
ple can be set to the young men 
as to how the ladies desire to be 
treated. "Reverse Weekend" is 
an inappropriate name for this 
social event, because the male 
species are lax about asking the 
female sex out on dates. 

Here are some examples of 
how a young lady treats a guy 
during Reverse Weekend with 
the expectancy to be treated in 
the same manner. "May I help 
you with your coat?" the lady 
inquired politely. "I'll take care 
of the check," said the young 
lady demandingly, yet softly. 
"What would you be interested 
in doing after the game?" ques- 
tioned the woman. A time for 
what makes a 

reverse weekend. Ladies 

the young men in 

they desire to be treated. 

Reverse is a change from the 
norm, but under normal cir- 
cumstances, most of the 
Southern College men fail to 
treat the women in a ladylike 
manner. The guys seldom 
realize that a small act means 
alot in a woman's book. Just 
the pushing under of a chair 
makes her feel womanly, and it 
also gives her a sense of worth. 
Even being polite when around 
friends makes a young lady feel 
special and not like one of the 

Because of a guys inability to 
ask a girl out on a date, the girl 
then feels obligated to do so. 

If the young ladies usually 
ask the young men out, then 
where does the term "reverse" 
come in? Reverse Weekend is 
surely an inproper name for 
Southern College's designated

A way From Campus 

Kidnap Victim Rescued ^ 

Kidnap victim Amy McNiel was rescued from her abductors Sun- 
day after being held for 45 hours. She was taken captive by 
gunmen Friday morning on her way to school. One hundred thou- 
sand dollars was demanded for her ransom. She was rescued by 
Texas Rangers' John Dendy and Howard Alfred in a final 
shootout near Saltille, northeast of Dallas. 

Train Derailment 

An express train in Ethiopia derailed white crossing a curving 
bridge. One relief worker quoted rail officials as saying that the 
engineer apparently failed to reduce speed around the curve, caus- 
ing the seven passenger cars to derail. Four hundred eighteen 
passengers were killed and 559 were injured. An official also stated 
that those injured are believed to be in serious condition. 

Mining Company Guilty 

The Grundy Mining Company pleaded guilty for violating the 
mine safety law which resulted in the December 1981 underground 
explosion killing 13 workers. John MacCoon, the assistant U.S. 
attorney, delivered a critical assessment of Grundy Mining's 
failure to meet safety standards. MacCoon said that omission of 
required ventillation partitions contributed to the building up of 
methane gas that was ignited by a cigarette lighter. 

Prison Complaint 

Dr. Seymour Halleck, a professor of psychiatry, said that the 
prison in the Nashville Unit is the worst he has ever seen in terms 
of lack of availability of exercise of human contact. Halleck in- 
vestigated the prison after a condemned prisoner sent a complaint 
to the federal judge about undercooked meals, leaking toilets, and 
the large amount of roaches. The professor's testimony was 
followed by testimony from an inmate on Death Row. The in- 
mate described his cell as being a place not big enough to do jum- 
ping jacks. "The prison food," he said, "is so undercooked that 
blood can be seen on the bones of the meat." 

Long-Term Aid to Ethiopia 


tion to airlifting emergency 
relief supplies to starving 
displaced persons in drought- 
stricken Ethiopia, the Adventist 
Development and Relief Agen- 
cy has started a long-term pro- 
gram to help Ethiopians 
reclaim their future by growing 
food supplies on irrigated land, 
according to Mario Ochoa, 
ADRA deputy director. 

"ADRA has voted $350,000 
to underwrite plans for a three- 
year program," Ochoa said. 
"An ADRA agricultural expert 
is in Ethiopia surveying 
possibilities for a teaching pro- 
gram. The costs will be tremen- 
dous, but the potential is even 
greater if we help the Ethiopian 
people to be self-sufficient over 
the long term. 

"As important as the current 
emergency ' relief efforts are, 
what will happen over the long 
term, after the plight of the 
millions of starving and 
malnourished Ethiopians drops 
from the evening news?" 

Ochoa said ADRA is an "in- 
tegral part of the international 
relief program that is rushing 
aid to Ethiopia's displaced per- 
sons. We've already airlifted 
nearly 60 tons of tents, 
blankets, medicines and 
clothing worth nearly $500,000. 
We're also shipping five large 

trucks and three trailers from 
Germany with 100 tons of high- 
protein biscuits and dry milk 
donated by people in the 

"Currently we're feeding 
about 30,000 people, primarily

mothers, at three locations," 
Ochoa said. "We're s'training 
our financial resources to the 
limit, but the people keep 
streaming in, often sick with 
pneumonia, tuberculosis, diar- 
rhea and other diseases. The 
photographs in the news- 
magazines are for real. 

"Some estimates put at least 
six million people on the brink 
of starvation in 12 of Ethiopia's 
14 provinces," Ochoa con- 
tinued. "The impact of that 
number is hard to understand. 
It is the equivalent of the 
populations of New Hamp- 
shire, Montana, Nevada, North 
and South Dakota, Delaware, 
Vermont, Wyoming and 
Alaska. One figure puts the 
death rate from starvation at 
1,500 per day. 

"As mind-boggling as the 
current situation is, next year 
may be even worse. This year's 
rains have been inadequate to 
grow crops for next year in a 
large part of Ethiopia," Ochoa

The College Bowl 

| Michael J. Bat list one 

"Jack and Jill went up the 

|To fetch a pail of water. . ." 
Or so the legend has it. But 
Iwho are we kidding? As college 
"ktudents, we have a pretty good 
fdea why both Jack and Jill 
iscended that mythical incline 
r one pail of water! Had they 
been students at Southern Col- 
lege, the destination of their 
trek would possibly have been 
e Biology Trail, which has the 
feputation of being one of the 
pore romantic spots on 

1 Embraced by the ridges of 
Vhite Oak Mountain.the Trail 
s constructed in 1979 by im- 
proving an old fire road. The 
Department removed 
Dogs and fallen trees, placed 
■teps over rough terrain, dug 
pitches to control erosion, and 
: been responsible for 
. Much of the 
recent labor has been done by 
Julio Narvaez, who spent last 

semester clearing out summer 
brush, re-digging drainage dit- 
ches, repairing steps, and 
destroying yellow-jacket nests. 

The diversity of plant life is 
typical of the Southern forests, 
and Jack and Jill may well go 
up the hill to fetch an Acer 
leucoderme in order to com- 
plete a lab assignment for 
Systematic Field Botany. 

In addition to students and 
teachers, regional wildlife are 
attracted to the flora surroun- 
ding the trail; forest inhabitants 
include squirrels, chipmunks, 
rabbits, raccoons, opossums, 
foxes, and minks, as well as 
many species of birds which 
nest here. 

The path is easily accessible 
--the trailhead lies just across 
the road behind Hackman Hall 
--so if ever you find yourself in 
the mood for nature study, a 
romantic walk, or just some 
reflective solitude, then take a 
hike-on the Biology Trail. 


The Southern Writers' Club 
will be sponsoring a Writers' 
Workshop on Thursday, 
January 24, starting at 1:30 in 
Wright Hall, Conference Room 

Dr. Richard Jackson and Dr. 
Luke Wallin, both professors 
of English at the University of 
Tennessee, Chattanooga, will 
critique the works of students 
and other interested in- 
dividuals. Thursday evening 
will include an informal supper 
meeting and a reading in the 
Student Center Lounge. 
Everyone is invited, but anyone 
interested in having a work 
critiqued must have it to the 
English Department no later 
noon Monday, January 21. For 
more details, contact Mrs. Ann 
Clark in the English Depart- 
ment or George Turner. 

The College Bowl began this 
past Monday, January 14, with 
four of the newest teams "but- 
ting heads" so as to advance to 
the next round. In the first 
match, Kathryn Park's team 
edged Mitzi Acosta's by a score 
of 150-140. The second match 
saw Shelly Duncan's team com- 
ing on strong at the end to beat 
Liz Cruz's group, 235-135. 

The College Bowl is an 
academic competition, in which 
four-man teams compete with 
each other in matches, fielding 
questions from the humanities, 
and trivia. 

This year's competition dif- 
fers from last year's in a few 
aspects. Firstly, four more 
teams were added, bringing the 
total up from eight to twelve. 
Secondly, whereas in 1984, a 
team not answering the toss-up 
question still had an opportuni- 
ty to answer the bonus question 

Begins Play 

if its opponent had responded {^fc 
incorrectly, this year only the ^^ 
team answering the toss-up 
question gets a shot at the 
bonus. Finally, the matches 
earlier in the week were well at- 
tended; more people watched 
Monday's games than the 
amount who watched last 
year's final. 

In Monday's first game 
Park's team answered a ques- 
tion with less than a minute left 
to go in regulation and with the 
score tied 140-140. She ad- 
vances to the next round and 
will play Stan Hobb's group, 
last year's champions. The se- 
cond match had Duncan's team 
forge to an early 90-0, only to 
fall behind 120-1 10. Then in the 
last three minutes they 
answered 3 questions con- 
secutively making the final 
score 235-135.

Plans Summer Seminar in Costa Rica and Mexico 

Students who are looking for 
a unique way to earn credit in 
history should investigate the 
recently announced travel 
seminar to Costa Rica and 
Mexico, July 1-25. Dr. Floyd 
Greenleaf, professor of history, 
will conduct the excursion. 
Spaces for ten students are 

: Called "Central America and 
jMexico: Crucible of Change," 
jthe seminar focuses on revolu- 
tionary change in the United 
States' nearest neighbors to the 
South. The seminar will yield 
three hours of credit under 
either HIST 295 or HIST 495, 
the department's directed study 
courses which also include 
credit for travel. 

Both sections apply to 
general education and to a ma- 
minor in history. Par- 
ticipants may opt for either 
upper division credit, 
the principal difference being 
that upper division hours will 
also fulfill the general educa- 
tion writing requirement. 

Seminar participants will 
divide their time almost equal- 
ly between actual meetings and 
touring historic, geographic, 
and cultural sites in Mexico and 
Costa Rica. On the schedule are 
meetings at the United States 
embassies in Mexico City and 
San Jose, Costa Rica. 

The seminar begins on July 
^ when the group gathers in 
fly to Monterrey, 



meetings start the i 


: day : 

Montemorelos. After a day of 
sightseeing in Monterrey on 
July 8, the group will fly to 
Mexico City for six days of pro- 
bing the historic and cultural 
richness of Mexico's capital and 
surroundings. Among the sites 
to be visited are the pre- 
columbian pyramids at 
Teotihuacan and the floating 
gardens in Xochimilco. 

On July 15 the seminar flies 
to Costa Rica for more 
meetings at the Adventist 
Center for Higher Education- 
known as CADES-in Alajuela, 
near San Jose, the national 
capital. Besides one of the most 
pleasant climates in this 
hemisphere, Costa Rica also 
provides beautiful scenery 
which students will see during 
a half day trip to Irazu, an 
11,000 foot volcano that 
erupted in the 1960s and 
dumped ash all over central 
Costa Rica. 

Cost for the seminar is 
$1400. The price includes 
roundtrip air travel from Dallas 
to San Jose, sightseing fees, 
hotels, food and lodging at the 
University of Montemorelos 
and CADES, medical in- 
surance, and three hours of col- 
lege credit. Participants will 
buy the two paperbacks re- 
quired for the seminar and their 
own meals while on the road. 
They will also have time for in- 
dependent activities. 

According to the brochure 
explaining the seminar, Dr. 
Greenleaf, seminar director, 
has made over twenty ln\ 

to Latin America and the 
Caribbean since 1962 and has 
devoted his research time to 
Seventh-day Adventists in these

J. Randolph Thuesdee 

Sitting in my room listening 
to my "Frankie Goes To 
Hollywood" tape lasrnight, I 
suddenly remembered that this 
weekend marked the arrival of 
Super Bowl XIX. You see, be- 
ing from Chicago and being a 
Chicago Bears fan from the day 
before they beat the Redskins 
until midway through the first 
half of their loss against San 
Francisco, I was quick to 

But, nonetheless, the Super 
Bowl Weekend is here, and as 
always, we get bombarded by 
sportscasters and sportswriters 
as to who will win and by how 
much. Usually, since the sport- 
scasters and sports writers don't 
play, they're always wrong. 
This year the Miami Dolphins 
are playing the San Francisco 
49ers, and if you know any 
jokes about San Francisco and 
Miami, you know that they're 
calling this Super Bowl. 

Jokes aside, everyone has the 
inside track on how the game 
will come out. Some feel that 
the Miami Dolphins with 
quarterback Dan Marino who 
has romped through the record 
books, will romp all over the 
49ers. Others say that his 
counterpart, Joe Montana is 
the quarterback of the best of- 
fense in efficiency and not 
necessarily numbers in the 
NFL. Thus he'll direct the 49ers 
to victory this Sunday. Not 
much more can be said about 
Marino. He has passed for over 
5 ,700 yards and 55 touchdowns 
this season. He's got a quick 
release, rarely gets sacked, and 
owns the ability to make the big 

although Montana is never 
.entioned in the same breath 
with Joe Namath like Marino 
is, Montana is efficient and 
cool. Anyone who drives a Fer- 
rari has got to be cool. Mon- 
tana doesn't pile up the number 
of yards and touchdowns like 
Marino does, but the numbers 
on that win column pile up, and 
touchdown numbers aren't all 
that make a football team. You 
have got to have some defense 
too. Just ask Dan Fouts. But 
then again, Dan Fouts didn't 
have the "Killer Bees" on his 
team. It has been said that in- 
side linebackers Jay Brophy 
and Mark Brown must play 
well against the run to stop the 
49ers offense. But sometimes 
those running backs, Wendell 
Tyler and Roger Craig can get 
into the passing lanes and go 
one-on-one with the linebackers 
and create some ball movement 
to compliment the running 

Defense will win this game. 
The 49ers have Fred Dean, Jack 
Reynolds, Keena Turner and 
Dwaine Board as their hard- 
hitters, all o£ whom will try to 
get to Marino before his 
receivers get open. But if they 
over-pursue, Marino will have 
all evening long to find Mark 
Clayton and Mark Duper, who 
have caught 30 TD passes bet- 
ween them. 

Dwight Hicks, Ronnie Lott, 
Carlton Williamson, and Eric 
Wright are the men in charge of 
stopping the Marks Brothers. 
Clayton has 20 TD receptions 
and Super Duper, 10. Not to be 
forgotten are running back 
Tony Nathan and 

Jimmy Cefalo and Nat Moore. 
The 49er secondary will have to 
hit hard early to slow down 
Marino's targets. 

So who'll win? I don't know, 
but some of these people do: 
Charles Schnell: "San Fran- 
cisco 42 Miami 38. San Fran- 
cisco will win because of the ex- 
perience of Montana and they 
have a running game, whereas 
Miami only has the passing of 

Chris Lang: "Dolphins by 3 
because Dan Marino is unstop- 
pable, and the 'Killer Bee's' are 
back! Miami 35-32." 

Tammy Ellis: "I would like 
to see San Francisco win but I 
think Miami will take it by 3. 
Miami: 24-21." 

Brad Senska: "San Francisco 
will take it by 10. 27-17." 

Dean Christman: "Miami by 
3'. The Dolphins have the 
NFL's fastest wide receivers in 
Clayton and Duper. Frisco's 
defense is strong, but I don't 
think they can stop Clayton and 
Duper consistently. Miami will 
Win 31-28. 

Dean Qualley: "My heart 
says San Francisco, but my 
mind says Miami. Marino is on 
a roll. .. Who can stop him? San 
Francisco is a better team but 
anybody can beat anybody. 
Miami by 7, 31-24." 

Ryan Lounsberry: "The 
decisive factor of the game will 
be the battle of the offensive 
lines. The team with the 
established running game will 
set the stage for a blazing pass- 
ing game. 49ers will take it by 
7, 24-17."

nist: "For the first time in many 


Basketball Begins 

Steve Martin 

Basketball season is under 
way with 26 teams playing this 
year, divided into "AA", "A",i 
"B", and "women" leagues. 
AA League is comprised of Five 
teams: Mock, Green, Cain, 
McFadden, and Acardo. A 
League has 9 teams: Davis, 
Wurl, Deely, Malone, Hobbs, 
Wise, Greve, O'Neal, and 
Selby. B League shapes up with 
Sutton, Pheirim, Snider, Jones, 
and Starbird. And the women 
have 6 teams; they are 
Klischies, Washington, 
McClure, Beardsley, Hilder- 
brandt and Green. 

Action got under way on 
Sunday night with Greve down- 
ing Wurl 5145, Tunnell led all 
scores with 15 points, and 
Folkenberg contributed 13 for 
Wurl in a losing cause. In 

. Washington 
blew out Klischies 51-20. 
Sanders and Yapshing each led 
their teams with 12 points. In B 
League Jones killed Starbird 
61-31. J. McElroy pumped in 
16 to lead all scorers Monday's 
games had. Deely beating Wise 
63-50. Waller led Deeley's team 
with 14 and Kamieneski hit 

crucial freethrows down the 
stretch to preserve the win. 
O'Neal defeated Davis 71-69. 
Freshman Eric Hope drilled 27 
points to lead O'Neal's team. 
Crone had 19 for the loosers. 
On Tuesday Malone got past 
Hobbs 66-62; Peets had 21 for 
the winner, and Aguilera had 
32 in a losing cause. And Sut- 
ton defeated Jones 44-35 with 
Durocher pouring in 25 points 
to lead his team to victory. And 
Tuesday night's womens game 
had McClure wiping Green 
61-35 as Messer led all scorers 
with 25 points. 

Next week look for the up- 
to-date standing and summaries 
for each game. Also, the player 
of the week in each league will 
be announced (to be voted on 
by the sport's writers). 

years, the two best teams in 
football are in the Super Bowl. 
Ther is no fluke this year. The 
Dolphins and the 49ers have 
proved that they are the best 
this year. The key to winning 
this Super Bowl will not be of- 
fense, as everyone is thinking, 
but defense. Can San Francisco 
stop Marino? Can Miami's sub 
par defense that allowed Pitt- 
sburgh to score 28 points stop 
Montana and company? The 
best defense will win this game 
and the 49ers have the better of 
the two. But still, look for a 
high-scoring game with the 
game being decided by a field 
goal difference as the 49ers 
come out on top, 31-28." 

David Smith, English: "San 
Francisco by 3, 24-21. The 
49ers have a strong defense and 
have an excellent scrambler for 
a quarterback in Montana." 

Russell Duerksen: "... the 
49ers defense will contain 
Marino and Montana's short 
yardage plays will prevail in the 
end. San Francisco by 7, 

Coach Jaecks and Coach 
Evans: "The majority of the 
games are fixed and there is no 
reasons why this should be an 
exception. Take the spread. 
(San Francisco by 3)." 

What do I think? Well, con- 
sidering this game will be 
played in San Francisco's back 
yard.. . and considering 
Miami's placekicker is 
unreliable... and considering 
the last time the Dolphins 
played against a good secon- 
dary, (L.A. Raiders in Orange 
Bowl) they lost. . . and consider-

jiles that takes up the whole 

desk, and drains into the top 

drawer.) I toddled out to my

Mr. Ed (my car( and I were

t seems to me that Grindstone

Fall-colored leaves gave us a

they danced in the rearpview

sleepy, decompositional death. 

I hadn't begun to get really

his white T-shirt with a 

black marker; he had an old 

rucksack on his shoulder; he 

r as walking backwards and 

olding his thumb out-like 

hey do. 

I stopped. I asked him where

He said, "I'm just going.

I said that well that's a coin- 
idence because that's what I'm

"Nice name," I replied. 

Iventures ot 

"Yea. . . thanks. I'm a 
destructuralist. I came here 
from Germany awhile back." 
And he volunteered to tell me 
all kinds of stuff like he thought 
cars were a waste of money, 
and that, in fact, money was 
basically a waste of time-it was 
how the leaders of capitalist 
governments kept the masses 
pacified. He told me I was a 
slave of my car. (Mr. Ed didn't 
like that; he missed a beat. But 
Betterred didn't seem to 
notice.) He told me about how 
he would prefer to be alive in 
Germany under Russian rule 
rather than alive and running 
around Berlin for an afternoon 
with vitreous humor streaming 
down his cheeks (paranoid 
nuke talk). 

I thought about that for a 
few minutes, and then said, "If 
I didn't have a car, you 
wouldn't have a ride." He said 
that he was just taking advan- 
tage of my state of bondage and 
servitude, and besides, he was 
not in a hurry to get anywhere. 
He felf sorry for me. I didn't 
have anything to say for a 

Just about the time I was get- 
ting ready to feel uncomfor- 
table we were waved down by 
a man with a broken Grenada. 
I stopped and told Betterred to 
get in the back. The new man 
got in the front seat with his 
brief case and pinstripes, and 
hands shook all around. 

"My name is Mr. Byloe 
Selhigh. My friends call me 
Wheeler D. I was on my way 
when my car blew a hose. . . 
Probably time to get rid of it." 
(Mr. Ed didn't like that; he 
missed a beat. But Mr. didn't

patted the dash.

a question as much as it was a

tell him. He guessed what I 
meant and changed the subject 
to what might as well have been 
the price of salmon in Canada. 

The road was winding along 
through all sorts of terrains and 
we passed every thing from 
four or five Muslim fanatics 
making their mark in an abus- 
ed A-3 10 Airbus to a black man 
from South Africa wearing a 
frock and getting a fortune in 
prize money (for his 
humanitarian efforts) from a 
trust fund set up by the man 
who invented dynamite. 

Mr. Selhigh was telling Bet- 
terred about a deal he was 
working on which involved the 
buying of a large sum or 
Duetch Marks from a nameless 
bank in Panama and using it to 
hire a hundred ton cargo ship 

(a Greek owned rustbucket, 
manned by Italians, and flying 
a Lybian flag) to sail to French 
Polynesia and buy bread fruit 
to trade with Russians for 
vodka on the black market. The 
vodka would then be traded to 
the Canadians for warped and 
knotted fir (and a considerable 
amount of hard currency). The 
ship would then be scuttled 
about two hundred miles off 
the coast of Morroco; then 
Lloyd's of London would 
promptly make good (with 
cash) on its insurance policy for 
a brand-new 1 50 ton cargo ship 
and a payload of clear red- 
wood. . . if the guy ever got his 
Grenada running, he might pull 
it off. 

Meanwhile, at a stop sign, a 
man asked for a ride. I said, 
"What the heck! What's your 
name and what do you do for 

As he was getting in, "I'm 
Kil A. Komy. I'm basically 
unemployed for a while, but I 
do some under-the-table work 
for The Cousins. They have a 
little business doing in Central 
America right now, you know, 
and I help out." 

Mr. Selhigh immediately 
started asking vague questions 
about Nicaragua and whether 
or not the Sandinistas rteed any 
redwood. They talked and talk- 
ed and from the back Betterred 
would throw in some sort of in- 
tellectual but incomprehensible 
statement about how worthless 
everything was. And Kil began 
to eye him suspiciously. 

I cruised along and gave 
Ihem my two-cents worth when 
I felt like it. Usually I didn't 

feel like it. Bettered was stret- 
ched out across the back seat; - t| 
I asked him, "Hey, Thandead, ' w| 
are you comfortable?" 
"I'm OK. That's all." 
Up ahead on the left, but 
walking with his back to us, 
was a man dressed in a bright 
reddish purply orange jump- 
suit. I slowed down to five mph 
and yelled out at him, "Hey 
man, do you want a ride?!" He 
didn't say anything, but jogg- 
ed around to the passenger side 
and skipped along until Mr. Ed 
came to a complete stop. 

I had to think fast. I didn't 
want to put Kil in the back for 
fear of having a homicide right 
behind my very eyes. If I put 
Byloe in the back, he and Bet- 
terred would drive each other 

So even though I wanted to 
talk to this new guy, I told him 
to get in the back. 

I said, "If you want a ride, 
get in the back." 

He had kind of a strange way 
about him. I said, "Who are 

He paused for a moment... 

"Orange... Agent Orange..." 

I thought to myself, "Oh 

Half an hour later things 
were pretty quite in the car. It 
turned out that Kil and Wheeler 
D. had known Agent Orange 
before, and Betterred had 
heard about him. I had picked 
up a minor celebrity. Kil had 
gotten to know him fairly well 
in the middle sixties; apparent- 
ly the two had worked together 
in the jungles north of the Da 
Nang Air Force Base in 'Nam."

He had some very hard feelings 
towards Agent Orange. But Kil 
was helpless to do anythings ex- 
cept complain. 

Mr. Selhigh, it seems, had 
actually sponsored Agent 
Orange during that very same 
Viet Cong ' 'police action. ' ' But 
Mr. Selhigh seemed to be 
ashamed of the acquaintance. 
He was looking out at the 
beautiful we were passing and 
muttering about how herbicides 
had just been like a commodi- 
ty to him. "...I didn't know a 
lot about long range negative

Betterred was chuckling 
through his nose but he had his 
arms folded tightly around his 
chest and he was pressed up as 
close to the window as he could 
get. He acted as if he had a real 
aversion to having any kind of 
contact with the Agent. There 
were traces of fear and loathing 
in his manner. 

Agent Orange hadn't said 
one word since he introduced 

I swerved around a sharp 
corner and caught a glimpse of 
a DEAD END sign. It was 
sticking out of the road em- 
bankment at about a forty-five 
degree angle and ivy was creep- 

ing up it. I stopped Mr. Ed 
when there was room to pull off 
the road. 

"Look," I said, "do you 
guys know where you want to 
go... where you want to be?" 

They all thought for a mo- 
ment and agreed that they 
wanted to go just a bit further 

I said that well I had to be 
getting on back because this 
wasn't where I wanted to be. 
"There's nothing up there, you 

So they all got out and walk- 
ed. They said thanks, and head- 
ed up the road. Kil, Byloe, and 
Betterred crossed the road and 
walked on the left side, 
shooting nervous, sidelong 

glances at Agent Orange. 

On my way back I noticed 
that the ivy seemed a bit further 
up the DEAD END post. 

After twenty minutes of driv- 
ing through all the things I had 
seen on the way, Grindstone 
Mountain loomed ahead. A big 
concrete drainage ditch ap- 
peared for a split second on my 
right and it had the words 
"skate tough or go home!" 
spray-painted on the far wall. 
Five more minutes and I was 
pulling off Camp Road into the

I passed my roommate and

rM90.5 Changes Its Programming Format

ge one of the past two 

rdays. Turning the dial of

lunch in the cafeteria, you 

; aware of the fact that 

d Favorites" and "The 

Day Express" no longer 

3n the air. Although 

^B> ur Story Hour" has not 

j been removed, the elimination 

of the former two programs is 

^fft of an overal programming 

Range. WSMC now em- 

Rmasizes a classical format 

■Ben days a week, effective as 

■ January 1, 1985. 

^■Prompted by the conviction 

Hal FM90.5 is a missionary 

Bm of the Seventh-day Adven- 

Bt Church, the station felt its 

Bevious format left its listeners 

^[th the view that the station's 

igramming is inconsistent. 

Perry, General Manager 

the station, explained that 

the listening audience in 

lattanooge tuned out the 

>ic programming on 

ibbath; thus FM90.5 failed at 

>e a witness to its 

jteners outside of Collegedale. 

Perry elaborated further: 

[90.5 defines its listeners as 

ig those with a specific in- 

the arts." With a 

isical format interlaced with 

Section of brief Inspirational 

isages both throughout the 

Bek and during the Sabbath, 

B station expects to increase 

Btosure to Christian principles 

of living. 

■Because gospel music's pur- 
Bse is to "nurture the flock," 
Bid not fulfill the missionary 
Brpose of the station. Todd 
Brrish, Development Director 
Dd instrumental in the new 
Brmat, emphasized that there 

are other stations in Chat-

to nurture. Among these are 

Parrish assures the Adventist 
community, however, that they 
will still be able to hear their 
favorite programs. "The Voice 
of Prophecy," "It Is Written," 
"Focus on Living" and other 
similar programs have remain- 
ed on the air. 

Listeners of FM90.5's NPR 
programs "Morning Edition" 
and "All Things Considered" 
will also find that these have 
not been removed from the new 

FM90.5 WSMC is the only 
classical music station licensed 
to Chattanooga. It is also the 
oldest non-commercial station 
in the area. With a listening au- 
dience of approximately 20,000 
in any given week, Perry and 
Parrish believe that the station 
will be more effective in 
meeting non-Adventists on 
their ground, especially the 
thought-leaders of the Chat- 
tanooga community. 

Although the station will not 
carry gospel music anymore, 
Perry still sees the students as 
listeners.. He expressed surprise 
about how many students have 
come to him and said that they 
do listen to the station and will 
not change their habits because 
of the change. 

Parrish would like to let the 
students know that FM90.5 is 
now playing more popular 
classical music, such as 
Beethoven's Fifth Symp^ny, 
during the afternoons. He ilso 
promises to those that may be 
concerned tnat classical music 
selected for the Sabbath hours 
will be chosen with special care.

Social Vice President Lovett Resigns 

Mike Battistone 

Marie Lovett, the Student 
Association Vice-President for 
Social Activities, resigned Mon- 
day evening, January 21. 
Although her decision was for- 
mally announced at a special 
senate meeting called for 8:00 
p.m. on Tuesday, January 22, 
1985, the letter of resignation, 
submitted to President J.T. 
Shim the previous day, was ef- 
fective immediately. 

Reasons for this resignation 
involve a number of conflicts 
with the Student Association, 

although not necessarily with 
all of the members of the SA. 
Marie felt that for her interests, 
as well as those of the student 
government officials and the 
student body, she would no 
longer be able to serve. 

Bob Folkenberg, a junior 
theology major and Mitsue

Southern College is now of-

graduates who wish to further 
their education by pursuing 
another major, by entering in- 
to a pre-professioal program, 
or by wishing to update their 

To be eligible for the half- 
price tuition plan, one must 
have earned a bachelor's degree 
from an accredited college or 
university and have a clean 
transcript, with accounts and 

loan payments up-to-date with 
the college or university. 

Complete applications, 
transcripts, and recommenda- 
tions must be turned in to the 
Admissions Office of Southern 
College no later than two weeks 
before the beginning of the 
semester for which you are ap- 
plying for. 

Financial aid is available for 
those who might need it. 

The plan applies to classes 
where space is available. The 
offer does not include indepen- 
dent study, directed study, stu- 

ed effective January 22 to fulfill 
the remainder of the term. 

President Shim says that the 
change will not be detrimental 
to the administration and im- 
peril the SA calendar of events. 
However, because Bob and 
Mitsue are entering their offices 
with only two weeks to work on 
the Sweetheart Banquet, this 
annual event may be delayed by 
one week. The new SA officers 
say that they will work extra 
hours in an attempt to have the 
banquet go on as scheduled. 

dent teaching, internships, 
private music lessons, or a pro- 
gram where a tuition discount 
is already in effect. 

The half-price offer is for tui- 
tion only. It does not apply to 
lab fees, surcharges for ap- 
plicable courses, dormitory 
charges, or cafeteria charges. 

The semester credit earned 
will not apply toward the KLM 
Gateway to Europe program. 

Southern College reserves the 
right to discontinue this special 
offer with a decision from the 
college administration. 


Come In From Out 
of the Cold 

School should have been canceled on Southern College this past 
Monday. This statement summarizes the general opinion of the 
students and many professors and administrators as well. When 
one considers that the temperature stayed under the zero-degree 
mark for all of Monday morning, then he must wonder why the 
doors of this institution were not closed. 

While inclimate weather will not always close down schools in 
the North, the situation Chattanooga and its suberbs found 
themselves in this past week proves that the South is not prepared 
to handle a combination of snow, ice, and sub-freezing 
temperatures. This statement is not a knock on the South, simp- 
ly a fact. Because this area of the United States does not normal- 
ly get this kind of weather, its leaders do not see the need to spend 
exorbitant amounts of money to combat something that may hap- 
pen once every five years-that is not to say that Chattanooga was 
caught totally off guard, however. 

The situation on this campus also proves that we too were not 
prepared to do battle with Mother Nature. Upon exiting Talge 
Hall that morning for an eight o'clock class, I immediately step- 
ped on a sheet of ice. Most of the sidewalks were in the same con- 
dition. 1 was able to avoid a fall, but other were less fortunate. 
Luckily, no one was injured. Through the course of the day, I 
was told that Herin Hall, the nursing building, could not be heated 
properly, that many of the roads leading to the campus had ice 
on them, and that certain professors stayed home because of these 
roads. In effect, Southern College was not safe for one's health 
on Monday-at least not until the early afternoon. 

The reason for holding classes is not known to me, but if there 
was a legitimate excuse, then I suggest that only afternoon classes 
be held on future days that look like Monday. The school will 
then have time to put salt on the sidewalks, to test buildings for 
any heating problems, and to get things ready for the students. 
The roads may, by that time, have thawed, and teachers may then 
be able to come to work. The Chattanooga area may not ex- 
perience inclimate weather like the type it had earlier in the week 
for a long time, but if it should, then Southern College should 
be absolutely sure that the campus is safe to attend.

against one's labor. 

"We're giving close to

percent a student is allowed to 
draw. With the 25 percent, it is 
between $35,000-40,000 a 
month, sometimes higher." 
The bulk of these expenses are 
not directly school expenses but 
instead related to new clothes, 
gas for the car, or Saturday 
night dates. Because of this 
fact, there is a six week to two 
month lapse between when the 
money is given out and when it 
is returned, amounting to about

Break a Leg 


i our way to the mall tues- 
my little sister, Lisa, was 
tiering away in her usual 
:er-school manner. She was 
tied that I promised to stop 
aco Bell-a promise I made, 
Lentally going through 
iry shop, trying to decide ex- 
ly what she was going to 
buy for her. I heard 
ly bits and pieces of her talk, 
.va.s listening to the 
dio. But I was careful to nod 
d say "Uh-huh" whenever 

paused for air. 
Two songs later, I noticed 
at the subject had changed to 
ist of all the films she has 
school from first to 

seventh grade. As I listened be- 
tween songs, I noticed one fact 
that amused me for a second, 
then put me into such deep 
thought that I didn't notice the 
radio anymore-90 percent of 
the films were on the same 
theme: Man stumbles, almost 
falls, finds God to help pick up 
the pieces. 

Joni Ericson dove into 
shallow water at age seventeen, 
became' paralyzed, and found 

Another girl was hit by a ce- 
ment truck while riding her 
horse. She was paralyzed and 
became a Christian. 

Cathy was jogging when a 
car hit her, breaking her legs. 
Jesus helped her through her 
struggle to run again. 

My mind raced to the films 
I've seen on a similar theme, 
like the film I saw this summer 
at vespers. ..a champion surfer 
turned to drugs before turning 
to God. Book stores are full of 
stories about actresses and ac- 
tors who tried drugs, alcohol, 
and other measures before they 
realized that God is their only 
source of fulfillment. He is the 
only One who can fill their 
empty spaces and make their 
lives meaningful. 

Such fantastic themes are 
witnesses to Christ from the 
mass media. Remember The 
Prodigal, the Billy Graham 
movie released last winter? 
That family became Christians 
also. I find it very unfortunate 
that these people had to go 
through so much hardship 
before they slowed down 
enough to listen to what God 
was trying to tell them for a 
long time. Most of these people 
knew who Christ is, but none of 
them took the time to know 
Him personally. So Christ just 
watched and waited until they 

Our parents spanked us when 
we were bad. They were prepar- 
ing us, caring only about the 
end result-that we be good. 

God also is concerned about 
the end result-eternity. And he 
will do everything, even if it 
means sending misfortune our 
way. We are fortunate as Chris- 
tians. We already know who 
Christ is. Let's get to know 
Him personally now. Don't 
make Him break you leg. 

ime to Think Summer Camp! 

Ronda Curtis 
This last semester of school 
already going by quickly. It 
1 not be long until the sum- 
r break comes. Most of you 
k forward to summers, but 
u also have that feeling inside 
at says you will have to work 
rd all vacation to make 
>ugh money to go back to 
ool: Looking for a good 
nmer job is not exciting. 
There is a solution! 
One solution could be work- 
g at summer camp. My sum- 
:r camp experience has serv- 
two purposes for me. I was 
ing a job that I enjoyed and 
itill made enough money to 
t me back in school the next 
When I think of summer 
mp, all sorts of things come 
mind: best friends, water ski- 
g, hiking, great kids, pizza 
irties, campfires, water fights, 
miming, cold showers, staff 
•rships, Walt Disney films 
'er and over), and many 
ier things that J can look 
ck at and say, "Hey, that 

was really a good summer." 

This list is not given to make 
the impression that there is no 
hard work at camp. There is a 
lot of work, but it is rewarding. 
You never have a boring mo- 
ment while you are at camp and 
you never have to look for 
friends. You also get a chance 
to see how you work with other 
people, especially children. 
You'll have some experiences 
with children that will make 
quite an impact (hopefully 
good ones). Working with 
campers helps you to see 
yourself more clearly, and gives 
you an opportunity to refine 
some of the human relationship 
skills that we all need to 

A big aspect of camp is the 
spiritual side. Every kind of 
camper possible will visit your 
camp sometime throughout the 
summer: from a conservative 
SDA kid to a kid who has never 
heard about Jesus. There are 

numerous opportunities to help 
their spiritual lives and your 
own throughout the summer. It 
is really exciting to see the 
campers get involved with the 
singing and praying at camp- 
fires. Many of them decide to 
follow Christ because some 
staff member had taken time to 
share Christianity with them. 
This week and weekend is a 
good time to make a decision 
about working at camp this 
summer. The Youth Directors 
from the Southern Union have 
been here to talk to those who 
are interested. Even if you are 
not planning to work at camp, 
you should stop by the Student 
Center and see how things are 
going with your Youth Direc- 
tor. You never know, they 
might convince you to join 
them for the summer. If they 
should be gone by the time you 
read this article, simply get their 
addresses from Mrs. Rice, 
Pastor Herman's secretary. 

Students Again Participate 
in Blood Drive 




OeV^L BEHftVI&fc, 






HfflU© lU^LLd^TQftA&ft. 

In a heartwarming gesture, 
several dozen students and 
faculty of Southern College of 
Seventh-day Adventists started 
off the new year by giving the 
gift of life. Fifty-six pints of 
blood were donated last week 
(January 15 and 16) to help 
save lives. 

The Blood Assurance 
organization, which was form- 
ed in 1972, is the only source of 
blood to 12 hospitals in the 
local area, 10 of them in 
Hamilton County and two 
across the state line in Georgia. 
One hundred pints a day, six 
days a week, is the average 
needed to keep these hospitals 
in constant supply. Because of 
community volunteers, this 
non-profit organization can 
usually meet this requirement. 
January and the summer 
months are the most difficult 
times of the year to find 
volunteers, according to a 
Blood Assurance spokesperson. 
The Blood Assurance staff 
have been coming to the cam- 
pus of Southern College for 
seven years, though the blood- 
mobile was acquired until 1979. 
This is the first year that the 
college is benefiting from a new 
program, whereby, if 25 per- 
cent of the students donate at 
least a pint of blood, the entire 
student body is covered by the 
Blood Assurance protection 
plan. The proection also in- 
cludes the group member's im- 
mediate family. This protection 
can be used anywhere in the 
United States and extends over 
a one-year period with an in- 
finite amount of blood being 
available for their use. 

"The students and ad- 
ministration at Southern Col- 
lege have a positive attitude 

towards giving blood," stated 
the Blood Assurance represen- 
tative. "The good response 
from faculty and staff spills 
over to the students." They are 
now working toward their 350 
pint minimum which provides 
coverage for the 1985-1986 
school year. 

A total of 243 pints of blood 
have been given during the 
September, November, and 
January two-day visits. A 
fourth visit is scheduled for 
April 2 and 3. 

A donor must weigh at least 
1 10 pounds and be 17 years or 
older. Careful screening ensures 
that certain health requisites are 
met in order to safeguard blood 

Bonnie Ley, a senior nursing 
student, has given over a gallon 
of blood. Other frequent 
donors at Southern College are 
Dr. Bill Richards, professor of 
business administration, and 
John Beckett, director of com- 
puter services. 

The donors not only beneit 
from the satisfaction of helping 
those who need blood each day, 
and from the reassurance of 
covering potential personal 
need, but they also receive a 
free t-shirt and are cared for 
very well by the Blood 
Assurance staff. Donors are 
given soft drinks and cookies. 
Blood Assurance staff say 
they like to visit high schools 
and colleges because giving . 
"the gift that keeps on living" * 
instills in youth the realization 
that the process is easy and 
relatively painless. They hope 
the donors will continue show- 
ing their community awareness 
by donating blood through 

James Boren is Next 

Anderson Lecturer 


"When in Doubt, Mumble" 
is the title of James Boren's 
presentation to be given at 8 
p.m. tonight in the E.A. Ander- 
son Lecture Series. 

The ten-part series is being 
held in the E.A. Anderson 
Business Seminar Room, 
located on the third floor of 
Brock Hall on the Collegedale 

Dr. Boren will also speak 
earlier in the day, at the 11:05 
a.m. student convocation in the 
Physical Education Center. The 
public is welcome. 

Known as a humorous 
speaker with a message, Dr. 
Boren went to Washington, 
D.C., to head the staff of a 
U.S. Senator. He later served 
for nine years as a senior 
foreign service officer in Latin 
America where he received 
numero i awards for his work. 
He holds five degrees, has 
authored four books, and has 
made television and radio 

In 1968 Dr. Boren founded 
the International Association of 

Professional Bureaucrats. As 
president of INATAPROBU, 
he presents "Order of the Bird" 
sculptures to those who apply 
the principles of dynamic inac- 
tion or orbital dialoguing. 

"Red tape is the tape that 
binds the world together," says 
Dr. Boren. "We bureaucrats 
are not against cutting tape, as 
long as it is cut lengthwise." 

In 1972, Dr. Boren ran a 
170-mile race from 
Philadelphia to Washington, 
comparing the speed of the 
Pony Express and the U.S. 
Mail. With a saddlebag of mail 
on a horse, he beat the U.S. 
Mail, some of it by as much as 
eight days. 

The E.A. Anderson Lecture 
Series, presented by the Divi- 
sion of Business and Office Ad 
ministration at Southern Col 
lege, was initiated in 1

money would not have helped 
speed the process of adding 
them to the campus. 

When the idea of a 
ScanVertiser-Loma Linda's La 
Sierra campus has a similar 
-was suggested, it didn't 
l receive a warm welcome. The 
I feeling was that our campus 
already had enough informa- 
tion systems, such as the Ac- 
icent, Chatter, and 2552. Even- 
Itually, the idea was approved 
Ion the assumption that the 
| ScanVertiser could serve as a 
f reinforcement for an- 
nouncements already made and 
a reminder for those who find 
places, times, and dates easy to 
forget when keeping up with a 
busy school schedule. Also, it 
would cut down on the number 
of posters around the campus. 
The ScanVertiser, with a five 
minute read out time, was pur- 
chased for $2,600. It will even- 
tually be hung above the cash 
registers in the cafeteria. This 
seems to be the ideal spot since 
most of the student body 
spends some portion of the day 

Bill Dubois, SA's Public 
Relations Director, will be in 
charge of the messages. An- 
nouncements similar to those 
on 2552 will be shown first. The 
remaining time can be bought 
for a dollar per message of ten 

words or less. Public messages, 
such as sporting events and 
meetings, and personal 
messages, such as birthday 
wishes, should be given to Bill 
or turned in at the SA office. 
For Valentine's Day, read-out 
time will be devoted to special 
sweetheart messages. It is 
hoped that the ScanVertiser will 
broaden communication, in- 
crease turnout to campus 
events, benefit students, and 
add to the enjoyment of cam- 
pus life. 

Marijuana: More 

Smoking one marijuana joint DailgerOUS Tlton TODaCCO 

probably equal to smoking _ 
pack of cigarettes a day," says 
Dr. Alfred Munzer, a lung 
specialist from Takoma Park, 
Maryland. He goes on to state 
that thus far few lung disease 
deaths have been attributed to 
marijuana smoking "only 
because marijuana as it is being 
used today hasn't been around 
that long." 

Dr. Munzer, who is a 
member of the Board of Direc- 
tors of the American Lung 
Association, is deeply concern- 
ed about the carcinogenic pro- 
perties of marijuana smoke. In 
an interview to be printed in the 

February 1985 issue of LISTEN 
magazine, Dr. Munzer explains 
why smoking marijuana can be 
far more dangerous to the lungs 
than smoking tobacco. 

"Literally hundreds of com- 
pounds are released when a 
marijuana joint is lit," says 
Munzer. "We don't know ex- 
actly what each of these com- 
pounds does, but a great many 
of them are irritants to the 
respiratory tract. If the 
respiratory tract is irritated long 
enough, precancerous condi- 
tions appear that can lead to 
crue cancer." The greater 

potency of marijuana in recent 
years has further increased the 
risks involved with its use. 

Not only does marijuana 
smoke contain 50 to 60 percent 
more cancer-causing agents 
than tobacco smoke, but mari- 
juana users tend to smoke 
joints down to the very end to 
inhale much more deeply than 
tobacco smokers, which draws 
the carcinogens further into the 
lungs. Munzer cites tests which 
show the presence of precan- 
cer in the sputum of 
marijuana users after only three 
to six months of regular mari- 
juana smoking. 


Hey Jer 



Jerry Russell 

"Hey, Jer." 


"I've got this great idea for 
your sports commentary this 

"No Heft, I don't want to 
hear it. Last time 1 asked for 
your help, I could have been 
kicked out of school if I had 
written some of that stuff." 

"No, listen. This really great 
stuff. Are you ready?" 

"Yeah, bring it." 

"Fish fighting." 

"Oh Heft, c'mon. I have a 
deadline. I can't be wasting my 
time listening to this 

"Just hear me out. You're 
gonna love it." 

Against my better judgment 
I listened to what he had to say, 
and I must admit, I'm sold on 
the ideaT 


This is how fish fighting 
works. Each participating stu- 
dent would buy a Chinese 
fighting fish called a beta for 
about VA dollars. Two fish 
would then square off in a 
neutral fighting bowl. The first 
fish to back off is the loser. 
These fish fights, of course, 
would be :he preliminaries, 
after which the fish would be 
ranked and put into a double- 
elimination tournament accord- 
ing to their ranking. 

The fights would take place 
in the dorm until popularity in- 
creases after which they could 
be moved to the Student Center 
and eventually maybe we could 
get Jaecks to make out a 
schedule. These fights would 
take the place of soccer, which 
is no big deal (maybe three or 
four people would get upset) 
because nobody likes soccer 

minutes, bul Snider went on a tear to 
put the game out of reach just shortly 
after halftime. Ross Snider led all 
scorers with 22 points, while Emie 
Pherim chipped in 13 for the losers.

Selby overcame a 20-point deficit t 

Wurl 86 Wise 69 
Bob Folkcnberg scored 17 points and Hope' tried to'keep Vings ~cTose while 


Henderson scored 19 points to lead 
Wurl over Wise, 86 to 69. Wurl's team 
had a very balanced scoring attack as 
five players scored in double figures. 
Roy Collins had a great game, scoring 
26 in a losing cause. 

McClure 55 Beardsley 29 
McClure blew past Beardsley 55 to 29. 
Messer led the way, scoring 23 points, 
and McClure added 14 more. Peters 
scored 18 in a losing cause, as she was 
the only offense for Beardsley. 


Pheirim 49 Sutton 37 

Ernie Pheirim's team bounces back 
from a blowout earlier in the week to 
beat Sutton by 12. Once again Pheirim 
led his team in scoring with 14 points 
while Mark Henderson followed with 
1 1 , eight in the second half. Durocher 
led all scorers with 1 5 in a losing cause. 

Snider 58 Jones 33 
Ross Snider (18 points) led his team to 
a crushing defeat of Jones, who had on- 
ly 1 1 points at the half. Wayne Goffin 
had 13 points in helping Snider to the 
victory who led throughout the entire 
game. Jay Dedecker was the only bright 
spot for Jones with 14 points. 


Cain 81 Arcado 79 

Guard Bob Stephan scored 20 second- 
half points and Kent Boyle added 8 
points in the clutch as Cain posted a 
two-point come-from-behind win over 
Arcado. It seemed as though Arcado 
would blow the roof off the gym with 
pin-point shooting from Jon Marcum, 
Steve Carlson, and Dave Butler. Mar- 
cum ended the first half with 16 points, 
but impressive play in the middle by 
Dcug Rowland and Boyle's play off the 
bench kept the confidence level of 
Cain's team high. Down by 18 at 
hairtime, Greg Cain led his team on a 
comeback. Blocking three shots and 
stabbing six rebounds, Cain gave the 
team the added lift they missed from 
him in the first half. Defense also was 
Cain's strong suit as they limited Mar- 
cum to just four second half points. 
Carlson was also held to four but Buder 
came alive for Arcado with 15. Stephan, 
however, couldn't miss, pushing Cain's 
team over the top with four minutes to 
play, 75-74, with a jumper from the cor- 
Stephan ended with 24 and Creg

Deely 71 O'Neal 62 

Dave O'Neal without center Paul Hor- 
ton suffered their second defeat in a 
row. O'Neal did get 26 points out of 
Eric Hope, however, who has been tear- 
ing up the league so far this year. For 
Deely, Steve Jaecks pumped in 29 
points, including a three- pointer, to lead 
the winners. Jerry Russell followed with 
1 2 points and Bob Kairu'eneski 1 1 , while 
Scotty Adams played a solid point 
guard with 9 points. The victory mov- 
ed Deely into a first place tie with Greve 
in "A" League. 

Davis 86 Selby 65 

Captain Jeff Davis scored 32 points, hit 
four three-point field goals, and pull- 
ed do'"n seven rebounds enroute to a 
86-65 victory over Kyle Selby's team. 
Selby's team never seemed to get it 
together until midway through the se- 
cond half as they committed 23 tur- 
novers in an error-plagued first half that 
saw them fall behind 36-19 at halftime. 
Jeff Davis had 14 points, and Jimmy 
Crone added 10 during the first half for 
Davis while Jim Estrada paced Selby 
with 10. Davis pulled away with good 
play in the key from Toby Fowler and 
Crone, as Selby blew their chances with 
Mike Fulbright missing ni 
shots. Fulbright still led his 
scoring with 18 points. 

Hilderbrant 42 Washington 38 

In one of the best women's game so far 
this year, Hilderbrandt got past 
Washington in overtime 42-38. Kerry 
Baker hit a jump shot with two seconds 
left to send the game into overtime. 
Louanne Marshall hit two timely 
jumpers in overtime to win it. Dinny 
Neo scored 17 to lead all scorers and 
Washington scored 14 in a losing cause. 


Hobbs 66 Wise 65 

In a thriller, Stan Hobb's team barely 
defeated Sam Wise's team in "A" 
League action Tuesday nigtu. Hobbs 
delivered a clutch free throw with seven- 
teen seconds left to play for the winn- 
ing margin. One thing went overlook- 
ed, though, with 48 seconds to play, 
Dean Schtisner was fouled by Dave 
AJonso, and in the heat of the moment, 
ten seconds eased off the clock without 
a soul noticing it. Mike McClung and 
Ron Aguilera each scored 20 points for 
the victors. With the loss. Wise drop-

Snow. It's H20 in one of its 
finest forms. It's pretty basic 
stuff, actually. And it is one of 
the all American cliches. You 
know, "of gentle wisp, and 
downy flake." Let's face it, 
those downy flakes are 
fascinating-snow is beautiful. 
Everyone appreciates it. 
Even the unlikeliest people get 
creative in snow. They walk 
through it, and they think 
about it. Profound thoughts 
like, "Hmmmm. . .snow. . 
.ooooh—deep," or maybe, 
"Here it is, covering all of 
everything," (pause for a mo- 
! ment) "and then," (another 
I pause) "It is so hot in the sum- 
mertime. . .think of that." The 
abilhy to think in the abstract 
a skill that many Americans 
like to believe they possess. Un- 
fortunately, many Americans 
uffer from delusions. 
Americans, on the whole, are 
very imaginative when it comes 
now. We make snowballs 
and throw them at each other, 
and laugh. (Too bad we can't 
fill MX warheads with slush 
and play a great joke on the 
reds.) We make snowmen and 
watch them melt. (Remember 
folks, school elections are com-

ing up; we will get to hear and 
see all kinds of verbal snowball 
fighting.) We go skiing, sleigh 
riding, tobogganing-and 
nobody knows what all. 
(Maybe the Encyclopedia Brit- 
tanica knows.) Some native 
Americans even build their 
homes with snow. 

But by the way, an American 
did not invent snow. Snow hap- 
pens when super-cooled con- 
densation meets a dust particle. 
That is, tiny particles of water, 
not large enough to be called 
drops, which are existing in 
temperatures as low as -40F get 
near a little piece of something 
to cling to. These tiny bits of 
water evaporate when they 
come close to a dust particle 
and instantly freeze around the 
particle without ever going 
through the liquid stage. This is 
called sublimation. The 
evaporated condensation 
always crystallizes in a hex- 
ogonal structue. That's weird.

Thought Provoking Whys 

Reinhotd E. Smith 

Does this school or the peo- 
ple who attend it sometimes 
puzzle you? Do you find 
yourself with questions that 
don't quite seem to get 
answered? The following is 
some of the more popular ques- 
tions that "Dear Lori" won't 

Why do people who have 
been driving for 50 years 
become rude, pull out in front 
of you even though there is five 
miles of empty road behind 
you, turn without using their 
signals, and start driving 15 
miles per hour in a 35 mile 
zone? Seriously, after 50 years 
wouldn't you finally get it 

Why do half the people in 
Hamilton County drive five 
miles per hour in snow, while 
the other half sit in a ice- 
covered parking lot, on a hill, 
and floor the gas pedal? You 
native Southern drivers are the 
best weapon the military could 
ever use. The best way to get a 
"Yankee" to go home is to 
drive 75 mph on ice and honk 
or go five miles per hour till 
Ihey go crazy and turn around 
and go back'where they belong. 

Why were the steps on this 
campus designed for munch- 
kins? Whether it's up or down, 
you feel like you're going to 
need charm lesons immediately. 

Why didn't the school get a 
two-for-one special and have 
Lynn Wood Hall ripped down, 

Why was Brock Hall built 
seven miles from the campus, 
and when will CARTA start 
service between buildings? 

Why does the "CK" close at 
seven o'clock? Where can you 
go around here for a Big Mac 
after seven? What is a Master- 
Burger anyway? Is it the best 
burger they serve? How about 
a "Steak-Burger"? Have you 
ever seen a bottle of A- 1 in that 

Why is there a two-thousand 
dollar fireplace in the Student 
Center that never burns? 

Why do we attend school 
when the wind-chill is -42 when 
most of us don't have clothes 
for that kind of weather? 

Why do theology majors 
wear clothes designed in 1967? 
By the way, guys, the latest 
fashion news is that wide ties 
are making a comeback, better 
get some thin ones. 

And finally, why does the 
women's dorm have brown and 
blue colors while the guys have 
pink and purple? And why do 
the guys have to leave the 
women's lobby at eight, when 
the girls can stay in the guys' 
lobby till eleven? 

Wait one more, the word is 
out that the reason we spent 
half -a-mill ion on the organ is 
that it will last for three hun- 
dred years, as opposed to thir- 
ty. We won't be here in thirty 
years, will we, much less three 
hundred? Oh well, something 
to think about. 

crystalline structures, compos- 
ed of molecules consisting of 
two hydrogen atoms and one 
oxygen atom, come floating 
down out of the clouds. Now 
we all know that the unbalanc- 
ed force on snow (as it is on 
everything near or on the 
Earth) is 9.8 Newton's (thirty- 
two feet per second squared.) 
But with all the friction, or up- 
ward force, supplied by the at- 
mosphere, it can take a long 
time for those downy flakes to 
land. After all, they do have a 
very large area to mass ratio. 
And what a beautiful ratio. 
Even that master of dualism, 
Rene Descartes, took time out 
from his brilliant (and 
sometimes misleading) 

philosophical projections to be 
one of the first in history to 
draw and write about 
snowflakes. (That's a fact.) Go 
ahead, read him sometime. 
And while you are trying to 
understand what he means 
about the difference between 
mind and body (more 
specifically, the difference bet- 
ween mind and brain), while 
you are trying to picture the I 
behind the I in your mind's eye, 
while you are trying to float 
your mind out through your 
ears, you might just pull 
yourself together and go out 
and thank the Lord with all of 
your being for something as 
beautiful and fun

The worst weather seen in 
years came to Tennessee this 
past week, freezing toes, pipes, 
and ponds, and sending people 
frantically searching for an- 
tifreeze for their cars. The 
minus-ten degrees temperature 
broke all records for the State 
of Tennessee since 1966. 

Early Sunday morning a 
heavy cloud cover spread over 
the eastern state, leaving in its 
wake 4 inches of snow. 

Sunday afternoon all but two 
schools in the Chattanooga 
area had decided to close 
because of bad weather condi- 
tions. The only schools that had 
classes were Southern College 
and Lee College in Cleveland. 


One radio broadcaster for 
KZ-106 commented, "Those 
Adventists " 

Despite the opening of school 
here at S.C., a few classes were 
cancelled because teachers were 
not able to get to the campus. 
Many village students also were 
kept home due to slippery roads 
and extreme cold. 

The inclimate weather seems 
also to have affected some of 
the students' sanity because 
during the coldest period of the 
week Mike Sinclair and friends 
tried jogging in the snow, wear- 
ing only shorts and tennis 
shoes. They gave up after only 
one lap around Talge Hall.

S.A. Elections Season Begins 

| Russell S. Duerksen 

As most of you are probably 
■aware, it is the season for SA 
■elections once again. And with 
Ian election goes a schedule of 
■jvents. Listed below are the 
■scheduled events for this year's 

1. Friday, February 1, 1985, 
i. A full listing of all 
andidates meeting filing 
regulations will be posted. 

Monday, February 4, 
| 1985, at 8:00 am. Campaigning 
| may legally begin. This is when 
begin to see posters 
sprouting up all over campus 
land find strange people walk- 
I ing up to you and asking for 
| your vote. 

3. Thursday, February 7, 
1985. Chapel on this day will be 
a speeches chapel at which all 
candidates will make short 
speeches describing their pro- 
posed plans for the next year. 

4. Tuesday, February 12, 
1985. If necesary, a primary 
election will be held on this day 
for any office fielding more 
than two candidates. 

5. Tuesday, February 19, 
1985. This is the day in which 
you get to question the can- 
didates for SA office. A general 
press conference will be held by 
all candidates in the cafeteria at 
12:00 noon at which they will 
be available 1 


6. Thursday, February 21, 
Please get out and vote on this 
day. Your vote does make a 
difference. Last year the 
presidency was decided by on- 
ly 10 votes. A polling place will 
be open somewhere on campus 
from 8 a.m. to 1 1 p.m. on that 
day, so there is really no excuse 
for not voting. 

In conclusion, these are the 
SA officers for your SA that 
you are electing, so get involv- 
ed in the electoral process. 
Remember, its the dues from 
your tuition that they'll be 
spending, so consider carefully, 
and vote accordingly.

As February 14 inches closer, 
many students are wondering 
how this year's Valentine's ban- 
quet will turn out. 

According to Mitsue Yap- 
shing, co-Vice-President for 
Social Activities, the banquet 
will be held, as planned, on 
Sunday, February 10 at 7:00 
p.m. The place will be the Chat- 
tanooga Choo-Choo's Imperial 
Room. This year's Valentine 
meal will be prepared by the 
Choo-Choo's staff and will be 
served buffet style. 

The banquet is considered an 
open affair, meaning that a per- 
son from either side of our 
campus may ask his or her

Mitsue and Bob Folkenberg, 
her co- Vice-President, are 
"hush-hush" on entertainment 
specifics, but some of the infor- 
mation that they have given is 
that all the entertainment will 
be done by Southern College 
students. There will be musical 
selections, comical skits, and a 
magic show. A highlight will be 
violin serenade music at one's 
table by request. A movie will 
be shown, but at the time of

With the close of Tuesday, 
January 22, the last day for 
students to add classes, 
Southern College of Seventh-

students enrolled on its Col- 
legedale and extension cam-

had 1468 students, giving it a 
head count increase of seven. 

However, the amount of full-

down from last year's total of 
1 , 124 to 1 ,088 . Also down is the 
total hours of enrollment, from 
17,420 to 16,857. These

have anything going for him.), and it gives the newly-elected of- 
ficial mandate to work ("We put you in because we felt you would 
do the better job. Now do it!"). When an office has only one 
person running for it, a voter is reluctant to not affirm him 
because the former does not want to extend the month-long elec- 
n process any further. Thus the elector puts the individual in 
office anyway, and the new officer does not have as strong a man- 
date to work. 

With more students showing an interest in student government, 
positive actions can ba accomplished. Not only will the students 
see that an idea is not simply a whim of the few, but the faculty 
and administration will notice this, too. With more students get- 
ting involved, better years of government are ahead for SC

Dear Editor, 

During the recent episodes ot 
non-typical Tennessee weather, 
it came to our attention that 
virtually all schools in the area 
were closed, except for a few 
glaring exceptions-most 
notably Southern CoUege of 
Seventh-Day Adventists. Why 
this discrepancy between SC 
and other schools? Do Adven- 
tist college students and 
teachers have certain qualities 
that make them better able to 
navigate in bad weather than 
everyone else? Is the snow and 
ice less treacherous on this cam- 
pus than anywhere else? 

True, most of the students 
live on campus and don't have 
too far to travel from dorm 
room to school room, but what 
about the village students and 
faculty? These people risk life 
and limb (and car), struggling 
through the elements to get to 
school. And what about those 
who can't make it at all? Is it 
right that some students have to 
miss class and go through the 
headache of making it up 
because they can't get to 
school? Then there are the 
teachers who are stranded and 
miss their lecture time. 

We've heard that school is 
kept open because the students 
wouldn't know what to do 
without classes and would go 
around terrorizing the campus, 
is this true? This reason we find 
hard to accept. 

Basically, what we're 
wondering is why SC must stay 
open during this unusual 
weather while all other schools 
close? A statement concerning 
reasons and policies for the 
school opening or closing 
would be appreciated.

Dear Editor: 

It's not often that I read an 
article in the Southern Accent 
that I don't like or even 
disagree with. But Lon 
Heinsman's "Reflections" ar- 
ticle in this last week's issue left 
me wondering and just a little 
bit disillusioned. 

I agree with the article in that 
we do not often heed God's 
word, and it takes something 
drastic to help some of us see 
our mistakes. What I don't 
quite understand is the fact that 
God is supposed to make these 
tragedies happen. I knew He 
allowed them to happen, but 
since when does He "break" 

I was raised and taught to 
believe that our God today is 
the same loving One who in Bi- 
ble times allowed Satan to hurt 
Job, yet provided him protec- 
tion through his faith. 

Even if we don't have Job's 
faith, I don't think God resorts 
to cruelty. Am I wrong? Has 
God changed? 

If so, here's to dictatorship, 
knowing God, and breaking a

The doctrine of the Great 
Controversy, simply that there 
is warfare between Christ and 
Satan, between good and evil, 
is fundamental to the Christian 
church. This spiritual warfare 
will continue until Christ comes 
again. Ultimately Christ will 
win. Goodness will prevail and 
righteousness will be the univer- 
sal condition forever. 

This controversy is in each of 
our minds. We all recognize its 
existence. In every one of us 
there lies at least a spark of 
spirituality: a time when we feel 
the presence of God in our 
lives, a time when we feel the 
reality of the gospel. 

In the discipline cases I have 
dealt with during my five and 
a half years at Southern, I have

consider the most "hardened" 
individual want to leave. In the

I hope I have answered your 
questions satisfactorily, Mr. 

Dennis Negron 

Preparing to Fight the Battle 

because he realized that 
Southern College provides a 
hedge, however small, protec- 
ting them from the world. 
Likewise, in each of our lives 
there is a time when the things 
of the world seem in control or 
more appealing. 

The question then is, how do 
we gain the victory in this bat- 
tle? What can we do to help the 
"good side" win? 

Each of us is unique; our ex- 
periences are different; but for 
me the battle must be won in 
the morning. If I am going to 
be victorious in the battle, I 
must make significant contact 
with the Lord Jesus at the 
beginning of my day before I 
face my responsibilities-before 
I relate with others. 

To be meaningful, my time 
of contact must be structured. 
Haphazard worship has never 

brought growth and victory in 
my life. 

My specific method is simple. 
I study my Bible primarily by 
books and paragraphs as op- 
posed to topically. In attemp- 
ting to analyze each paragraph, 
I list on paper the predicates of 
each sentence, then subjects 
and objects. I also use what are 
sometimes called in English 
classes "our six Uttle friends"- 
-who, what, where, when, how 
and why. 

Probing takes time and ef- 
fort. Sometimes I read a 
paragraph six or seven times 
and its meaning doesn't sink in; 
sometimes the meaning remains 
vague for months; then the 
light begins to shine when it is 
most needed. 

Asking questions, not only 
helps in the analysis of a 
specific passage, the process 
opens the mind igniting an in- 

quisitive nature and inspiring 
love and appreciation for the 

First Corinthians 10:6-11, 
discussing Moses and the Ex- 
odus experience, slates: "Now 
these things occurred as ex- 
amples, to keep us from setting 
our hearts on evil things as they 
did. Do not be idolaters... We 
should not commit sexual im- 
morality... We should not test 
the Lord... and do not grum- 
ble... These things happened to 
them as examples and were 
written down as warnings for 

I read the Bible stories to my 
children and for myself over 
and over because they "tend to 
keep us from setting our hearts 
on evil things." 

You may not have a Goliath 
to fight, but you have giants of 
your own. You may never be 
thrown into a lions' den but

Graphology: no, it's not 
another one of those general 
education classes you're re- 
quired to take, but you may en- 
counter it as you're applying 
for jobs and even after you 
become a full-time employee. 
Graphology is the study of 
loops, spaces, slashes and other 
distinctions of penmanship. 
About 1,000 businesses across 
the country (banks, ad agen- 
cies, automotive businesses, in- 
surance firms, oil companies, 
etc.) are using handwriting 
analysis as an indication of an 
applicant's general personality 

Through graphology, a train- 
ed analyst is supposed to be 
able to distinguish whether a 
person is trustworthy, depen- 
dable, honest, patient, deter- 
mined, or any of a number of 
other traits. 

The theory is that while the 
conscious mind concentrates on 
what is being communicated, 
the writer's personality comes 
through in the height, slant, 
rhythm and shape of specific 
letters (somewhat like body 
language reflects a person's real 

Some companies are turning 
to handwriting analysts for an 
unbiased opinion on an appli- 
cant, since it's unlikely the 
analyst has ever met the person. 

Thinking patterns are shown 
in lowercase m's and n*s, says 
Joan Christo, graduate of an 
1 8-month correspondence 
course from Chicago's Interna- 
tional Graphoanaiysis Society. 
Broad, rounded letters reveal a 

methodical approach, while the 
height of lowercase t's and d's 
reveal ego characteristics. 

Depression and alcoholism 
can also surface through a per- 
son's script. According to 
graphologist Sheila Kurtz, an 
alcoholic's handwriting often 
has disjointed j's, and hand- 
writing that slants downward 
may point to a depressed 

Like some other analysis 
palmistry, hypnosis-graphology 
has an image problem. Many 
Americans put it in the "in-

the process some thought when 
screening propects, applicants 
should also take it into con- 
sideration while applying for

imitates that -of hypnosis', 
however, that poor image could 
change. Hypnosis is now being-

to utilize graphology because of V_

CoUegedale's New Celebrity: John Brombaugh 


Lori Selby 

Though much has been writ- 
ten in this newspaper about the 
new church organ, not much 
has been said about the smiling, 
white-haired builder. 

John Brombaugh and his 
wife, Christa, have three 
children: Adrienne, Daniel, and 
Eric. Mrs. Brombaugh is a 
kindergarten teacher. The 
organ building business, John 
Brombaugh and Associates, In- 
corporated, located in Eugene, 
Oregon, keeps Mr. Brombaugh 
building in the shop most ofthe 
time. He says that about 20 per- 
cent of his time is spent travel- 
ing to install and tune his 
organs, as he is doing here in 

Music and organ building 
have been lifelong interests of 
John Brombaugh. He started 
music lessons in the fourth 
grade and continued them on 
past college. Interestingly, his 
undergraduate studies at the 
University of Cincinnati, where 
he met his German wife, were 
not in music, but in electrical 
engineering. After graduation, 
he worked for the Baldwin 
Company on electronic organs. 
His organ interest folowed him 
even to his honeymoon, part of 
which was spent looking at 
historic instruments in Europe 
from Hamburg to Amsterdam. 

Back in the states, he con- 
tinued looking at organs while 
pursuing a M.A. degree in 
engineering, with emphasis in 
acoustics, from Cornell Univer- 
sity in New York. He wrote his 
Master's thesis on the 
acoustical properties of organ 

John Brombaugh's organ 
building career began in earnest 
with a 3'/2 year apprenticeship 
in Boston. During this time he 
built his first small organ for his 
own congregation, Trinity 
Lutheran Church, in Ithaca, 
New York. (This first organ 
was very similar to Col- 
legedale's former little one, 
now located in Judy Glass' of- 
fice in the Music Building.) 

After learning what he could 
from American builders, Mr. 
Brombaugh became a 
journeyman under an organ 
builder in Germany, one of the 
best in the world. When he 
finished his journeymanship in 
1968, he already had clients 
waiting for him to build organs. 
He's been in business ever 

Mr. Brombaugh says that 
though the physics, science, and 
electronics of engineering have 
been valuable to him, organ 
building involves primarily 
cabinet making, woodworking, 

Brombaueh carefully Inspects a pipe before tostallatioii. 

metallurgy and welding. An 
organ builder must be a 
specialist in many areas. 

Mr. Brombaugh used his 
engineering background to 
design electronic tools to use in 
building and tuning pipe 
organs. He also uses a com- 
puter for technical designing 
and other aspects of organ 
building. While the Opus 26 has 
a historic architectural style and 
the Opus 27 is authentic late 
Renaissance-early Baroque 
style, Mr. Brombaugh also 
builds organs possessing a more 

modern architectural style. 

Mr. Brombaugh sees organ 
building as "recovering an old 
art." This year, 1985, is the 
300th anniversary of Johann 
Sebastian Bach, one of the 
world's greatest and most pro- 
lific composers. Bach's com- 
positions contained many 
marvelous organ works, which 
have to a large extent been une- 
qualed in subsequent years. Mr. 
Brombaugh feels that this is 
partially because many serious 
musicians have stayed away 
from modern electrical in- 

struments, which cannot i 
pass an authentic pipe organ. 

He hopes building majestic I 
pipe organs will one day foster 
the development of composers 
to rival Bach. 

Organ building in the 16th 
and 17th centuries represented 
the most advance technical 
knowledge of civilization at 
that time-comparable to space 
exploration in our generation. 
John Brombaugh's organ 
building has helped to reclaim 
a rare art and has combined it, 
by new tools and methods, with j 
the technology of today.

Alcohol Abuse in Teens 

The biggest problem with drug and alcohol abuse is that kids are 
beginning to use them at earlier ages. According to Robert Sibley - 
Commissioner of the State Mental Health Dept., the statistics 
show that 10 to 1 5 perceent of all high school students use alcohol 
or drugs in excess. That amounts to around 50,000 teenagers in 
Tennessee. The findings also show that young people have their 
first dnnk between the ages of 12 and 18. Sibley pointed out that 
about 2.5 billion dollars is being invested in these products 

Blanton Drops Trial 

Tennessee's former governer Ray Blanton dropped efforts to 
win a new trial from the U.S. Supreme Court. He is concentrating 
instead on moves to win his release from federal prison. Blanton 
is currently serving a three-year sentence at the prison camp near 
Montgomery, Alabama, after being convicted on liquor license 
conspiracy charges. 

Meece in Hot Seat Again 

Edwin Meece found himself in the Senate Judiciary Committee 
hot seat for round number two in his fight to become attorney 
general. Meece was nominated last January, but the nominations 
became bogged down in the controversy over his finances and 
ethics. No evidence was found that criminal charges should be 
brought against him. There are a lot of questions about his medical 
standards that have to be answered, however, but in the end the 
betting is that Meece will be confirmed quickly.

O Sports Commentary 
(Hefty's Bag) 

Steve Martin 

Have you ever wondered 
what Rodney Dangerfield and 
a zebra have in common? 
Neither receives any respect. By 
Zebra, I mean a referee, which 
he is commonly referred to as. 

Being a referee can be one of 
the loneliest jobs in the world. 
Have you ever been standing in 
the middle of an open floor and 
had hundreds of people yelling, 
screaming, throwing foreign 
objects and treating you much 
worse than your mother ever 
would? There is nothing more 
disheartening than looking out 
into the crowd, looking for that 
one face, that one person you 
know will back you on every 
call, and discovering that he's 
staring holes in the floor, not 
wanting to acknowledge that he 
even knows you. 

We, I' , few, the proud, the 
refs nc. er claim to be perfect. 
We're only human. What do 
you expect from us? When you 
have ten bodies flying around 
the court and one lone soul 
comes up to you and says "Hey 
man, didn't you see him slap 
my hand???!!!" there is only 
one reply... No way" Let's be 
for real. How can one person 



Mock 79 Cain 76 
Eric Mock's team carried sole posses- 
sion of firsl place with their overtime

decisive period tied at 68 before Mike 
Gentry's pair of quick jump shots put 
Mock ahead 72-68. Doug Rowland led 
Cain's team with 19, Bob Stephen had 
17, and Greg Cain finished with 12. 
Gentry led all scorers with 25, 16 in the 
second half and Bob Rodgers chipped 
in 17 for Mock (3-1). 

Klishies 33 Hilderbrandt 27

Snider hit 20 points to lead all scorers. 
Alan Starbird led his team with 12 

Hobbs 66 Deely 57 
Joe Daly's team led much of the game 
but made costly errors in the end as 
Hobbs capitalized on Dedy's mistakes. 
For Hobbs, Aguilera scored 21 points 
while Mike McClung also hit for 21. 
Steve Jaecks and Bob Kamieneski hit 
17 points apiece for the losers. 


Cain 72 Green 55

ly had a chance at the end but Steve 
Jaecks (32 points) missed a last second 
shot. Kent Greve and Don Welch add- 
ed 12 points apiece for the winners. 

Snider 36 Jones 34

Basketball Standings 

catch all the nitpicky things that 
transpire on the court and be 
fair about it? 

Basketball is a physical 
game. There is going to be some 
shoving, pushing, scratching 
and tripping in every game. 
And, yes, I hate to admit it, but 
I must be honest. We will miss 
some of those calls. They do in 
the NBA, so why can't we? It's 
nothing personal as many 
would tend to believe, we just 
call what we see. 

It seems that some people 
think we're out to get them. I'll 
let you in on a little secret. 
There is only one thing a referee 
cares about in a basketball 
game... getting it over as soon 
as possible. We could care less 
who wins the game, who fouls 
out or scores the most. 

Now, before you pious 
sports experts yell at what 
seems to be a bad call, try wear- 
ing the striped shirt and whis- 
tle for awhile on one women's 
game. Ponder these points, and 
the next time you see a referee 
giving a technical to a player, be 
assured he really would prefer 
not to. It's just his job!

Fourth Floor? What fourth 
floor? There aren't any. You're 
right, not in the literal sense. 
But there is a certain faction of 
the dorms that maintains a 
floor for the purpose of 
character assassination. (The 
cafeteria is running a close 

Now almost everyone gossips 
in his life at one point or 
another-and that in itself is bad 
enough-yet somehow gossip 
almost seems accepted. Out- 
and-out character assassina- 
tion, however, is cruel and can 
destroy people. 

Usually a small percentage of 
people are involved, yet this 
small group is always the 

During your life you have 
met, and will meet people, who 
don't exactly "turn your 
crank," if you will. That's part 
of life; accept it. Better yet, go 
out and tell that person; be 
honest and say, "Hey, I don't 
like you for the following 
reasons. . . Can we work this 

Bold, you say?. . . Wouldn't 
you rather have someone say 
this to your face than tell the 
rest of the campus? More often 
than not, the reason you don't 

like someone is due to a 
misunderstanding anyway, and 
if you don't get the reasons out 
in the open, you have two hurt 
people~you and your accusee. 

For example, just because a 
guy chooses not to have a 
girlfriend and he dates friends, 
doesn't mean that he is a 
playboy. He could have very 
good reasons; maybe he doesn't 
want to get hurt. And what 
about a girl who doesn't want 
a boyfriend? I've heard one too 
many guys call a girl "easy," or 
"stuck-up" just because she 
dates around. Maybe classes 
are too time-consuming to have 
a relationship. 

Trying to "do someone in" 
will have two principle results: 
making you look foolish and 
reducing school morale. 

Remember this is a Christian 
school, so we should at least 
make an attempt to be Chris- 
tian in our relationships with 
each other. Face it, friendship 
is where it's atl Southern Col- 
lege has some of the nicest peo- 
ple you will ever meet. 

Remember guys, that girl 
whose reputation you rip to 
pieces could be someone's 
sister. What if she were yours?

stuff to more grown up stuff. 

They are consistent now. "-

what they play. For us variety

Gossip is a sort of smoke that comes

who diffuse it: it proves nothing but 
the bad taste of the smoker.

outhern College Revamps 

Its Division Organization 



mt Van Arsdell 
[he Executive Committee of 
ithern College met Tuesday, 
iruary 5, and gave final ap- 
) three proposals for 
iemic reorganization. "The 
:nt ten divisions are being 
^^ezed into six and a new one 
ing added," said Bill Allen, 
President for Academic 
lirs. The organization is not 
»st cutting measure but is in- 

a give every specializ- 

jranch of study the oppor- 
/ to have its own depart- 
but still be part of a divi- 
o get bigger projects done. 
new academic plan is as 
n. (see chart right) 
'At first glance the grouping 
departments into divisions 

may not seem to be organized," 
said Allen, "but it is." The 
Divisions are patterned along 
the lines of the general educa- 
tion group requirements. 

The people who will be most 
affected, the current division 
chairmen, are not all convinc- 
ed. One administrator said, "It 
will only put another echelon of 
the organization between the 
administration and the teachers 
or students. We don't need that 
in a college this size." 

Some administrators were 
very supportive of the plan 
however. Wayne VandeVere, 
Chairman of the Division of 
Business and Office Ad- 
ministration, said he thought it 

would bring decision-making 
closer to the action. Other 
chairmen are also positive 
about the new plan. "I tend to 
be a raging optimist," said 
David Steen, "and I say let's try 
it. We can always change it 
later if it doesn't work." Steen 
also said that it would allow 
divisions to develop a "critical 
mass" that seems to be 
necessary to get major projects 

The new plan should not 
have any effect on the students 
in the immediate future, said 
Bill Allen. There may be some 
changes in the general educa- 
tion requirements, but that will 
not take effect immediately.

Last semester, Dr. Marlene 
)skind-White, a practicing 
iychotherapist who has re- 
ached eating disorders, 
asented a workshop on 
bulimarexia, an eating disorder 
Ihat twenty percent of the 
IJnited State's college women 
pave. On Tuesday of this past 
Week, the women were given 
the fourth talk within a period 
|>f two weeks on the same 

Although Millie Runyan, 
Jean of Women, realizes that 
he subject can become weary 
>n many of the regular worship 
i°ers, she is concerned with 
hat appears to be a rash of 

ies of bulimarexia among the 

lidents of Thatcher. Mrs. 
unyan believes that the na- 
ional rate of twenty percent af- 

ction is a fair estimate of how 
y women on campus have 


I Bulimarexia was described as 
J "binge/purge cycle" by Dr. 
foskind-White. She outlined in 
- lecture last semester three 
| v els of the affliction. A 
■Oman will start forcing herself 
1 vomit as another method of 

weight control. She only purges 
on the occasions where she has 
overeaten to the feeling of 

The next stage is more severe. 
Irresponsibly, she begins gorg- 
ing herself with food. Then 
purging becomes an everyday 
activity when she realizes that 
she can get rid of the food easi- 
ly. The methods of purging are 
fasting, vomiting, and self- 
induced diarrhea. 

Finally, this habit becomes a 
lifestyle, but at this point ir- 
reversible damage has been 
done \o the body. 

Mrs. Runyan relates that 
finding vomit in the restrooms 
and study rooms of Thatcher 
Hall has been a common occur- 
rence, so much so that she has 
had to lock these rooms during 
the late evening hours. A 
woman will often use a public 
bathroom or a study room to 
vomit in because she wishes to 
hide the problem from her 

Runyan points out that in 
past school years, vomit in 
these rooms were found 
although not as often as this 
year. One other difference is 
that the deans are now aware 
that the vomit may be from a 
bulimarexic. In the past, it was 
attributed to a woman who was 
pregnant or who was drunk. 
Runyan says that with the 
knowledge she has now, she 
realizes that pregnancy or 

drinking may not have always 
been the problem. 

The women's deans are ter- 
ribly concerned about the pro- 
blem because of the damage it 
can do. Runyan related an in- 
stance about an unnamed 
Orlando student who went on 
this binging/purging cycle. She 
eventually had to drop out of 
school. Today the woman has 
heart problems and many other 
permanent side effects from her 
habit. Some women, she says, 
take upto one hundred laxitives 
a day in an effort to thoroughly 
purge themselves. This act may

Mrs. Runyan is pleased with 
the results of the awareness 
program. She said that many 
women are beginning to realize 
their problems. A part of the 
program that has effectively 
worked is an advertisement for 
a phone number women can 
call for help found in the 
classified section of this 
newspaper. She says that she 
does not know who has called 
although she has been told the 
response has been good. Ru- 
nyan notes that this number is 
a reliable alternative to any 
woman who might not be asser- 
tive enough to participate in a 
group counseling session. 

The sessions will meet in 
Thatcher Hall in the Annex sec-

charge, and women with the 
problem are encouraged to go. 



Anderson Lecturer Advises 
on "How to Buy a Car" 

Bill Battle will present prac- 
tical pointers for potential car 
purchasers in the next E.A. 
Anderson Lecture at Southern 
College of Seventh-day 

The lecture, followed up with 
a question and answer period, 
will begin at 8 p.m. tonight in 
Brock Hall. 

Mr. Battle began working 
with auto dealerships nearly 45 
years ago. He started out in the 
parts department of a Chrysler- 
Plymouth dealer in 1940 for 
$12.00 a week. World War II 
closed the dealership, but after 
his discharge from the military, 
Mr. Battle was rehired by the 
same Washington, D.C. dealer. 

In 1951, Mr. Battle moved to 
Collegedale and became a new 
car salesman for Chattanooga's 

oldest automobile dealership, 
Citizen's Motor Co., a 
Chrysler-Plymouth dealer. He 
held the position of sales 
manager from 1957 until 1970 
when the dealership was sold. 

For the next three years, he 
was sales manager for Austin 
Chrysler- Plymouth. He is now 
sales manager at Newton 
Chevrolet, Chattanooga's 
oldest Chevrolet dealer, a posi- 
tion he has held for nearly a 
dozen years. 

Mr. Battle is a member of the 
Collegedale Seventh-day 
Adventist Church. He has serv- 
ed as a deacon since 1959. 

The E.A. Anderson Lecture 
Series gives listeners a broader 
understanding of the business 
world. The public is invited to 
attend free of charge.

Meet the Candidates 

by Sheila Elwin and Melanie Boyd 


Where's the Truck? 

When you were younger, you were probably met with the 

O challenge to eat all your food because there are people in the world 
who are starving and would be glad to have what you didn t eat. 
Then you didn't whether those were meaningful words or just 
a ploy to get you to eat all your food. The point is that you most 
likely grew up with the vague understanding that somebody in 
the world didn't eat like you did. Now you are older, and the pro- 
blem of hunger is becoming more and more relevant as the press 
brings it into the sight of the public. Are we capable of helping 
cure the problem of starvation? 

My answer is yes and no. I believe we as a country are doing 
all we can to aid in the distress of other nations. If we continue 
to give a few dollars of our tax money, a few dollars here and 
there to charity to help the starving people in the world, we will 
most likely be giving the maximum of what a country is able to 
absorb. So if we are giving all the money that a country can use, 
and the people of that country are still hungry, does that mean 
there is no way that we are ever going to cure the problem of star- 
vation? This is correct, if we continue attempting to solve the pro- 
blem with the same strategy we have been using all along. 

But there is a "yes" answer to the question, too. The real pro- 
blem is often looked over by a staid and naive public. We are 
giving food, that is true, but in nine cases out of ten, the country 
has received enough food to seek out a survival. The problem lies 
in its distribution. Who would give a truck to a starving town? 
But that's just what some of them need so they can travel the 
distance to a suppy center where they can get the food that your 
dollar has sent them. 

The U.S. Government is putting billions into research that is 
trying to discover new methods of growing crops and planning 
new industries for the people of a deprived country, but they've 
been doing this for years without results. Everyday thousands of 
people perish because we are researching-trying to find out the 
solution to an unsolveable problem. Unless we wake to the real 
needs of these people they will continue to die because of our 

When you hear that a country has asked for help because their 
people are starving, don't let the presupposition "they need some 
food" pop into your mind. Mavbe thev're askinc for a truck! 


Dear Readers, 

I hate to disappoint some of 
you, but Dennis Negron and I 
were not "feuding" in the 
"Letters. . ." section of the 
January 31 Southern Accent. 
My reason for writing was to 
formally ask Mr. Negron to 
make certain things clear to 
you, the readers. I already 
knew the answers to my ques- 
tions. Mr. Negron knew 1 
planned to submit a letter. We 
not only work together in the 
Student Association, but also 
are friends. Neither of us in- 
tended that my question and his 
reply sound malicious. I feel 
that it is unfortunate that peo- 
ple read so many negative 
things into something that is in- 
tended to be positive. 

Thank you.

Changes and Choices 

years. Generally, the younger 
people are, the more rapidly 
they wish those days would 
pass. 1984 has passed, and 1985 
is here. The Presidential elec- 
tions came and went. The in- 
auguration is over, and now the 
country is asking for the im- 
plementation of change and 
leadership that could affect 
many aspects of our lives. 

Some have not always found 
change easy to deal with. I 
know a faculty member on our 
staff who, with his older sister, 
were adopted when they were 
young. Some thirty years later, 
while teaching a class here at 
SC, he received a call from a 
scared, excited, nervous young 
lady, followed later by a call 
from an equally scared, excited, 
nervous young man who had 
been searching for a brother 
and sister they knew existed 
through photographs stored 
away in a shoebox by their 
mother before she died. That 

phone call and the calls that 
followed, along with an actual 
meeting some months later, 
brought about a profound 
change not only in his life, but 
in the life of his family. This 
sudden change confronted him 
and his family with choices- 
choices that would be very dif- 
ficult for some to deal with. 
Should they accept or reject this 
young man and young lady 
along with their families and 
children whose way of life was 
different from theirs? They 
made their decision to accept 
them as they were and asked 
them to do the same. What was 
more important was that they 
had found one another. 

Changes and choices are in- 
terrelated. Changes often lead 
to choices. Yet choices in- 
evitably affect changes. Often 
choices are not clearcut. The 
most difficult are those that 
deal with the "grey" areas. As 
students and staff here at SC, 

we sometimes find ourselves 
learning how to relate to friends 
who choose to practice and 
believe differently from what 
we believe. Our level of 
tolerance of others would no 
doubt be reflected across the 
spectrum. I find nothing intrin- 
sically wrong with that, except 
that with the passage of time 
and possibly the results of 
maturity and study, we change, 
we make choices, we toil, we 
and grow. Our lives seem to be 
full of choices-whether to get 
up or to stay in bed a little 
longer in the morning, to study 
or to watch a ball game, to wait 
for a date or to go on your 
own, to eat or to get to the next 
class on time—and the list can 
go on. For faculty and 
students , changes are being 
brought about in the Division 
structure of our college and 
with it come choices that might 
not only affect the way business 
is conducted in this institution, 

but it will also influence the 
lives of us all. Consequently, we A 
need to be careful about the ^^ 
choices and changes we make. 
Change in itself is neither 
good nor bad. Choices in 
themselves are neither good nor 
bad. Yet they are both in- 
evitable. We come to those 
forks in the road, and we have 
to make choices as to which 
path to take, and our lives 
become changed from that 
point. Some decisions are ir- 
reversible, and especially if they 
are based on poor choices our 
lives, our future, and the lives 
of those around may be hurt. 
We are all bound to make 
mistakes, but how we deal with 
those mistakes, the choices we 
make might just turn those 
mistakes into stepping stones 
leading to positive change in

Father-Child or Idol-Child: 

Reinhold Smith 

"Oh most Holy, Almighty, 
Life-giving Heavenly Father, 
we thank-you for another day 
of life, a day in which we can 
witness of your Beautiful, 
Unrelentless, Life-sustaining 

A little deep perhaps? Are 
you bored yet? God probably is 
too. Have you had enough of 
pastors opening their prayers in 
this fashion? Isn't God our 
heavenly father? When you call 
your parents, do you use such 
sugar-coated adjectives? No, 
you simply say, Hello Dad, I 
need money! 

Parents love you, provide for 
you, and care about your hap- 
piness. Isn't God the same, ex- 
cept on a heavenly level? If you 
were a father, how would you 
like your child to come to you 
and use the previously men- 
tioned greeting in addressing 

Now, I'm not advocating a 
lack of respect for God, but 
rather saying that you should 
treat him as a parent, not an 

How about public prayer? 
Why do pastors, teachers, and 
lay-people with years of ex- 
perience in public-speaking 
read prayers filled with mean- 
ingless adjectives? Of course, 
there isn't anything wrong with 
writing out your prayer and 
reading it, if you have had no 
experience. Obviously the 

chance of a mistake from the 
pulpit would be higher. 
However, those with experience 
should pray from the heart or 
not at all. 

Prayer should also be simple. 
After all, it is a conversation 
with God, much the same as a 
conversation with your earthly 

Have you ever listened to a 
child pray? Christmas vacation 
I had the pleasure of listening 
to my nine-year-old nephew 
pray, and it went something 
like this: 

"Dear Father, thank-you for 
loving me, Mom and Dad, 
Grandma and Grandpa, and 
Uncle Ron. Forgive my sins, 
help the missionaries, the 
flowers not to die, and the 
cowboys and Indians not to 
fight. I love you, good night." 

I sat back and thought: How 
simple, just as if God himself (^ 
was in the room, like a friend. 
You know what, He was. 

The reward of a thing 
well done, is to have 
done it. 




Jonathan Wurl 

Jonathan Wurl and Cameron 
Cole are running unopposed 
and are on the same ticket for 
the 1985-86 school year. 

Presidential candidate Wurl 
is a junior chemistry major and 
Executive Vice Presidential can- 
didate Cole is a sophomore 
biology major. 

When asked, Wurl and Cole 
stated that they wished to run 
together for the same goal: to 
encourage student involvement. 

Said Cole, "1 feel that the 
words 'Student Association 1 
have lost their meaning. We 
need to put the 'student' back 
into 'Student Association'." 

Wurl added that he was 

"proud of the S.A." and wish- 
es to promote a "sense of pride 
among all the students." 
Both put prime importance on 
interaction between the 
students and S.A. 

Wurl's experience includes 
temperance president his 
freshman year in academy, 
S.A. president his sophomore 
year, junior class pastor, and 
senior class president. 

Cole's academy experience 
includes student council 
treasurer his freshman year and 
S.A. treasurer his senior year. 
Also, he is senator and assistant 
Joker supplement editor this 

Lori Heinsman 

Lori Heinsman, sophomore 
mathematics and journalism 
major, is the sole runner for 
Southern Memories Editor. 

Heinsman, who is from 
Orlando, Florida, would not 
tell her plans for the Memories, 
since she wishes to keep an 
"element of suspense." But, 
she does emphasize the goals of 
a very accurate index and an 
alive yearbook. 

Explains Heinsman, "I want 
the pages to come alive as we 

capture the moments in picture. 
Also, I want the write-ups to 
give an actual feeling of reliv- 
ing the events." 

Her long list of experience in- 
cludes yearbook photographer 
her junior academy year and 
newspaper feature editor her 
senior year. She also worked 
for her hometown newspapers. 

Presently, Heinsman is a 
senator, writer of "Dear Lori," 
Accent reporter, and copy 
editor for Memories. 

Brannon Francois 

The office of Vice President 
for Student Services has four 
candidates running for it. The 
first one is Brannon Francois. 
Brannon is a freshman religion 
major. His hometown is New 
Orleans, Louisiana. Mr. Fran- 
cois feels qualified for this job 
because he has had a lot of ex- 
perience as a leader on the high 
school level. Some of his 
leadership positions are SA 
President at Bass Memorial 
Academy, senior class 
secretary, boys' club leader, 
and a residents' assistant. 

Brannon says that as a 
freshman, he can instill fresh 
ideas in the SA. One of his 
ideas that he would implement 
if he were elected would be van 
service to approved ballgames 
and concerts. 

Carol Huenergardt 

Our first candidate for the 
position of Social Activities VP 
is Carole Huenergardt. She is a 
freshman from Ceres, Califor- 
nia. Carole feels that she is 
qualified for the job because 
she is organized, flexible, en- 
joys doing things for the 
students, and is a perfectionist 
in her work. 

Carole has quite a few ac- 
tivities she would like to see put 
into effect, such as a time in the 
middle of the week for the 
students to come away from 
their studies and have a little 
time to converse and relax for 
awhile, more trips to the Alpine 
slide, a road rally, and a larger 
variety of Saturday night 

Bill Bass 

The second candidate for the 
office of Vice President for Stu- 
dent Services is Bill Bass. This 
junior religion major makes his 
home in Charlotte, North 
Carolina. Bills feels that he has 
the experience to satisfy 
Southern College's students' 
needs the best. Formerly a 
boys' club president in 
academy, he currently works as 
a senator, as a residents' assis- 
tant, and for Instructional 

Despite one of the smaller 
budgets in the SA, Bill says that 
he can work with it and provide 
some good services. Some ot 
these are as follows: trips on 
certain Sunday mornings to 
Atlanta malls, the return ol 
Pink Panther cartoons, an 
more cookie breaks during me 

course of a day. 

Sherry Beardsley 

Our second candidate is 
Sherry Beardsley. She is a 
freshman from Kansas City, 
Kansas. Sherry has had 
previous experience working 
with an S.A. organization at 
Forest Lake Academy, where 
she was the S.A. treasurer her 
senior year. She said that she 
also helped out with planning 
several social activities as well. 

Sherry would really like to 
see the school spirit of Southern 
uplifted and would like to plan 
some sort of school-spirit day. 
She would like to see more of 
the students getting involved 
with activities and says that she 
is open to all ideas and 

Ed Santana 

Ed Santana is our third can- 
didate for this office. He is a 
freshman theology major from 
South Lancaster, 

Massachusetts. Ed lists his 
qualifications for this leader- 
ship position as follows: vice- 
president for his school's stu- 
dent government, president of 
the same school's Spanish club, 
two years experience as a 
logistics officer in the ROTC, 
and currently a senator at 
Southern College. 

Ed sees no problem with get- 
ting his job done efficiently and 
correctly. "I think I can do the 
job, and I want to do the job," 
he says. He did not wish to 
divulge any of his plans for next 
year should he get the office, 
but Ed plans to put out a survey 
to find out what students want. 

Bob Jones 

Bob Jones is a junior com- 
munications/journalism major 
from Leominster, Massachu- 
setts^ and is running for Accent 
editor. He is currently the 
Layout Editor for the school 
newspaper. He feels that he is 
qualified for this job for many 
reasons. One of the main 
reasons is that Bob has been 
working on a newspaper staff 
since his high school years. He 
hopes to make the paper more 
balanced in the choice of ar- 
ticles, and he wants all to know 
that he is open for ideas. 

Julio Narvaez 

Our final candidate for the 
office of Student Services is 
Julio Narvaez. Julio is from 
Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, but is 
a Mexican citizen. He lists his 
qualifications simply as a hard 
worker, a good organizer, and 
a good handler of finances. Our 
candidate has had leadership 
experience before, but he feels 
they are unimportant to the 
position. The qualities above 
are enough, according to Julio. 

Julio would like to provide 
more traveling information to 
students for vacation, help keep 
the students more informed, 
plan more trips to fine arts and 
sporting events, and much 
more. He too plans to take a 
survey to find out the likes of 
the students. 

Brent Van Arsdell 

The second candidate for 
Editor of the Southern Accent 
is Brent Van Arsdell, from 
Lockport, Illinois. Brent is a 
reporter with the Accent this 
year and has been layout editor 
in the past. He feels that his 
strong point is not only his 
previous experience, but that he 
is a good budgeter. Brent feels 
that with his good budgeting 
skills, he can create a better 
paper. He promises that he will 
do the best job possible and will 
have the "stick-to-it 
get the job done, 


Paul Ware 

The only candidate running 
for the position of Joker editor 
is Paul Ware. Paul is a 
sophomore history major 
working on his pre-medical re- 
quirements. Our candidate 
resides in Newport News, 
Virginia. He has had no 
publishing experience, but plen- 
ty of leadership experience, 
such as senior class vice- 
president, junior class presi- 

dent, freshman class president, 
and boys' club 

secretary /treasurer. 

Because the Joker is a 
publication of the school, Paul 
did not want to divulge any of 
his ideas, but he plans to put 
out a creative, neat Joker. His 
main objective for next year is 
to get the booklet out on time 
and into the hands of the 
students as soon as possible.

crowd of approximately 800 
people saw the SA officers and 
some of Southern College's 
faculty and administrators, 
along with some of the area 
ministers, perform in the an- 
nual SA Benefit. Perhaps a 
more appropriate way of saying 
it is the crowd watched the 
above performers make 
donkeys of themselves. 

This year's SA Benefit event 
was Donkey Basketball. Ac- 
tually, the donkeys were the 
performers as they bucked, 
kicked, ran away from their 
riders, played stubborn, and 
had "accidents." And the 
riders simply had to allow all of 
this to go on to play within the 
rules of the game. 

The evening's festivities had 
the ministers playing the 
teachers in one game and the 
SA officers and administrators 
playing in another. The 
teachers and administrators 
won their respective games and 
went on to play a championship 
match. The teachers won this 
final game. 

"Awards" were given out at 
the end of the night. Some of 
the more notable ones were 
Assistant Professor of English 
David Smith's High Scorer 
Award and Treasurer Robert 
Merchant's Best Rider Award.

After a month of play, the 
College Bowl has taken some 
interesting turns. Monday, 
February 4, saw one more team 
eliminated from competition, 
leaving nine out of a field of 
twelve original teams vying for 
the championship. 

Chip Cannon lost to Alice 
Roszyk in a match that saw the 
loser come up five points short 
of a tie upon answering the last 
question with time running out. 
The final score was 205-200. 
Although at times Roszyk 
seemed to be taking command 
of the game, Cannon refused to 
bow under pressure. With two 
s left in the game, Can- 

non's team, down 205-170, 
answered two toss-ups and part 
of a bonus question but ended 
up short five points. With two 
losses in the College Bowl, Can- 
non was eliminated from play. 
Also on Monday evening, in 
a game matching two of the 
teams favored to win the cham- 
pionship, Russell Duerksen 
edged Keith Goodrum in the 
last two minutes. This game 
was similar to the one above in 
that Goodrum also seemed to 
have the game locked half way 
through the match before 
Duerksen mounted a come- 
back. The final score was 


With the loss, Goodrum 
joins Hobbs and Wolbert, three 
of the top four seeds, in the 
consolation bracket. A second 
loss will eliminate any of these 
teams. Already eliminated are 
Steven Wrate, Liz Cruz, and 
Chip Cannon. 

Tonight's matches feature 
Mitzi Acosta vs Alice Roszyk 
and Zell Ford vs Donna 
Wolbert. The first match will 
start at 5:15 p.m. behind the 
curtains in the cafeteria. The se- 
cond game will start five 
minutes later.

Wpok Ting Shim 

J On Wednesday evening, 

February 6, "there were two 

inportant events at the Capitol. 

was a speech by the 

president but before that there 

s a reception for Congress to 

present Diana," said Dr. D. W. 

Holbrook. Holbrook, Presi- 

fdent of Home Study Interna- 

Itional (HSI), was reporting to 

Ithe employees of HSI at a lun- 

Jcheon at General Conference 

eadquarters the following 

David L. Peoples, President 
bf NHSC said at the reception, 
I'The National Home Study 
Council conducts a Home 
ptudy Graduate-of-the-Year 
m. Seventy 1983 
graduates were judged on their 
academic records and the level 
and quality of their contribu- 
tions to their chosen fields, 
budges chose 12 finalists.'* 
((One of the members of NHSC

I will receive certificates, another 
I four will go to the national 
I NHSC convention iv Florida, 
I and the top four were recogniz- 
I ed at the Congressional Recep- 
Ition. "In that top four," 
I Holbrook reported later, "the 
I Home Study Institute candidate 
s number one!" 

Holbrook's introduction of 
Diana brought laughter. "This 
little girl that we're so proud of 
studied in such exotic and 
strange places as Beruit, 
Asmara, Gimbi, Libya, Crete, 
and considerably." When he 
continued, "She's a delightfully 
sparkling and exuberant girl, 
and I want the judges to know 
that she's only the first in a long 
line of graduates of Home 
Study International that will be 
honored here every year." 

Holbrook estimated that 
about ten Senators and twenty 
Congressmen showed up. Even 
though Diana, who voted for 
the first time in the past elec- 
tion, had voted for both of 
them, she was nevertheless sur- 
prised when both Represen- 
ative Marilyn Lloyd, 3rd 
District of Tennessee, and 
Senator Albert Gore, Jr., of 
Tenessee, were on hand to pre- 
sent the award which said, 
''Outstanding Home Study 
Graduate Award. The National 
Home Study Council 
recognizes the outstanding 
academic achievement and ex- 
emplary contributions to the 
public rendered by Diana J. 
Green, Graduate of Home 
Study International." 

Diana's mother, Eppy 
Green, flew here from Africa to 
be with her in Washington. 

Health Care Systems Topic 
Anderson Lecture 

Ronald J. Wylie, a lawyer 
from Washington, D.C., will 
present "If You Like Revolu- 
tions, You'll Love the Health 
Care System" tonight, Feb. 14, 
at 8 p.m. in Brock Hall. 

Mr. Wylie is currently special 
I assistant to the administrator of 
the Health Care Financing Ad- 
L ministration (HCFA), U.S. 
[Department of Health and 
Medicaid programs which com- 
prise approximately 10 percent 
of the entire Federal budget. 

"If Medicare and Medicaid 
ere considered as a private 

f corporation, these programs 
together would be the second 

1 largest corporation in the coun- 
try," Mr. Wylie points out. 
Health care services have pro- 

| vided for over 52 million poor, 
elderly, and disabled 
Americans. Expenditures on 

their behalf will total nealy $100 
billion in fiscal 1985. 

After receiving his bachelor's 
degree from Andrews Universi- 
ty, Mr. Wylie went on to 
receive his law degree from the 
University of Michigan Law 
School, where he was a finalist 
in the Freshman Moot Court 

A member of the Michigan, 
District of Columbia, and U.S. 
Supreme Court Bars, he has 
previously served in the Office 
of the Commissioner of the Ad- 
ministration on Aging, and was

Heritage Singers 
to Give Concert 
at Southern College 

Sheila Elwin 

The Heritage Singers, an in- 
ternationally known singing 
group, will present a gospel 
concert in the Collegedale 
Seventh-day Adventist Church 
on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 7 p.m. 

The 12-member group of 
singers and musicians recently 
returned from a second Euro- 
pean tour, including perfor- 
mances in London, Paris, and 
Geneva. Tours have also taken 
them to Australia, New 
Zealand, and South Africa. 
The group is based in Placer- 
ville, Calif. 

Known for their rich and 
harmonious blend of voices, 
the Heritage Singers have 
received five Angel Awards 
from Religion in Media. This 
Los Angeles-based organization 

judges for excellence in 
religious and moral quality 
media and recognized them in 
vocal group of the year, best 
television series for "Keep On 
Singing," and best albums. 

"This year marks the four- 
teenth season of the Heritage 
Singers' sharing the love of 
Jesus Christ thorugh testimony 
and song," comments Max 
Mace, founder and director of 
the Heritage Singers. "Our sole 
objective is bringing people to 
Jesus through Christian

^ Vote!. . .Please 

After four years of noticing thai students do not bother to vote 
during Student Association elections, this year I feel that a plea 
for a better turnout is in need. Last year less than fifty percent 
of the students voted. That figure is lower than the national turn- 
out for most presidential elections in this century. Yet in SA elec- 
tions, a student does not have to go through complicated registra- 
tion processes, take time away from class or work to make the 
trip to a voting area, or stand in long lines. 

In fact, voting for SA officers is made as simple as possible 
for the student. He may cast his vote in the dorm, at the Testing 
and Counseling Center, or at chapel sometime during the day from 
8:00 a.m. to dorm closing time. The procedure takes a pencil and 
five minutes and no more. 

With all due respect to our current SA President, J. T. Shim, 
I have at times wondered if he would be in office if more people 
had voted last year. Shim won by the narrow margin of ten votes. 
If ten more of Denise Read's supporters had turned out, a special 
election would have been in order. The voter apathy of Southern 
College students may have been the decider in that race, and not 
the supporters of Shim. 

This year, only three of the races have more than one person 
running for it, which is unfortunate. But that fact does not detract 
from the importance of the sutdents' voting. Not one of the can- 
didates for the offices of Vice President for Social Activities, Vice 
President for Social Services, and Accent Editor would feel hap- 
py about a loss by only ten votes with less than fifty percent of 
the student body voting. Still, the importance of voting for next 
year's elected officers is that they will help shape the fun of 
1985-86. If a student wants a good year, then he should vote. And 
from the feedback that SA officers get when something does not 
go right, most students want a good year. 

Next week, February 21 , Thursday, Southern College will hold 
its SA elections. I would be happy with a sixty-percent turnout. 
The amount is not unrealistic. It can happen by SC students simply 
heeding the plea to vote.

I regret that your informative 
tabulation on the front page of 
the 7 February A ccent indicates 
that there—are no modern 
language majors on campus. It 
is true that the number has 
dwindled to an all-time low of 
one, though another has recent- 
ly decided to change his major 
to French. Our campus does 
have three other students, 
however, who are attending 
Adventist Colleges Abroad: 
two at Collonges and one at 
Sagunto. These students will 
return to us with a modern 
language almost completed, if 
not entirely so. 

We expect the number to 
grow dramatically when word 
gets around that several 
southeastern states will soon re- 
quire two years of high-school 
language in order to enter the 
state university system. Florida, 
for example, is already beginn- 
ing a search for more than 100 
certified teachers of Spanish.

Lori Heinsman 

How many of you read the 
Lewis Grizzard column in the 
Chattanooga Times Tuesday, 
January 22? It was titled "Not 
even Weyman C, Wannamaker 
can cuss in the same league as 
AI Pacino." Having heard 
about Scarf ace, Pacino's 
movie, I read this editorial. It 
prompted me to give some 
thought to the dirty language, 
nudity, and violence that we see 
in movies and on television. 

Grizzard explained that 
Pacino "plays a Cuban punk 
who becomes a high-rolling 
dope dealer in Miami by going 
around shooting and knifing 
people." However, violence is 
not the only reason the film was 


'Frankly, My Dear, I Don't Give A Flip" 

rated R, Grizzard points out. 
"It was the nonstop use of nas- 
ty language. . . There was one 
dirty word, as a matter of fact, 
that was used over and over in 
the movie. Al Pacino didn't say 
two other words before saying 
that word again." This word is 
described as being perhaps the 
most taboo word in our 

After further description of 
the film, Grizzard writes, "I 
think it's time Hollywood 
cooled it on the excessive use of 
graphic language, or our cur- 
rent bad words will lose their 
shock value. . . You know 
where all this started though. It 
started when Rhett Butler said 

Banquet a 

to Scarlet O'Hara, 'Frankly, 
my dear, I don't give a (censor)' 
in Gone With the Wind. 

"If Rhett had said, 'Frank- 
ly, my dear, I don't give a flip,' 
then talking dirty in the movies 
might never have reached its 
current depths." 

Right on Grizzard! My sen- 
timents exactly. Real men don't 
cuss (or real women). It's dir- 
ty, impolite, immature and ex- 
hibits a limited vocabulary. Nor 
does it make much sense most 
of the time. Why cry out for 
"manure" when you burn your 
finger? An ice cube would be 
more appropriate. 

It's not fair, though, to just 
harp on cussing in movies. The 

same goes for nudity. It has 
gotten way, way out of hand. 
Sure, we're adults. We are old 
enough to see what the human 
body looks like. So we defend 
PG-13 movies, nasty TV shows, 
and the weird videos on MTV 
on that assumption. "We don't 
listen to that stuff, Dad, so 
don't get up tight." But Dad's 
not just worrying about us. 
He's concerned about the grade 
school kids. They grow up 
watching casual sex on TV, and 
violence made fun and exciting. 
Criminals are heroes. Isn't 
anything sacred anymore? 

Think about it. Instead of 
just brushing it off because 
"Adventists don't do that 

stuff"(pr do we?), think about 
it. When we were kids, we wat- 
ched Little House on the 
Prairie. Now kids start out with 
watching the PG and R rated 
flicks they see on HBO. Soon 
that won't be entertaining 
enough, so they will watch 
heavier and heavier stuff. How 
far will they creep up the smut 
ladder? What rung will they 
reach without feeling that 
anything is out of the ordinary 
or wrong? 

Sociologists say these films 
are not healthy for the minds of 
children and teenagers. They 
can't be very good for us either. 

We spend so much time pro- 
tecting our environment. What 
about protecting our minds?

If you like the unique sound 
of an Australian accent, Diane 
Fletcher is a good person to talk 
to. She is a native of Sydney, 
Australia, and has come to 
Southern College this year to 
teach home economics. 

Fletcher first came to the 
U.S. to a get a Master's Degree 
at Pacific Union College. Then 
she returned to Australia to 
teach home ec at Avondale for 
a year. After that stint, she 
came back to the U.S. to get her 
doctorate in home ec education 
and nutrition at Texas 
Women's University. She has 
finished all the course work and 
is now working on her diserta- 

Miss Fletcher received her 
original background in home ec 
from her mother who is a dieti- 
tian. The art of cooking and 
sewing was sort of a family 
tradition. Miss Fletcher was 
cooking for the family on occa- 
sions and sewing for contests by 
the time she was twelve. 

She became inspired to make 
a careeer of it in seventh grade 
when a home ec teacher taught 

so poorly that she determined 
to learn how to do it right. 

There is saying that says: A 
full stomach with homemade 
clothes thrown in, is about all 
some people think home ec is. 
It certainly is more of a com- 
plicated combination of science 
and art than most people think 
when one talks with someone 
knowledgeable. Aside from the 
usual nutrition and meal 
management classes, Miss Flet- 
cher also teaches classes in 
quantity foods (mastering the 
art of making food in big 
amounts without wrecking the 
taste) and teaches seminars in 
home ec which cover current 
research and topics with some 
discussion on ethics. She is also 
adding some new classes to next 
year's bulletin called "Life 
Skills" and "Creative 

Miss Fletcher has some in- 
novative ideas like the Valen- 
tine's cookies she helped in- 
terested students to make. She 
is creative and will add a lot to 
Southern College. The Accent 
welcomes her. 

Dear Students, 

Did you know that last year less than half the student body 
voted in the S.A. elections? The enrollment last year was around 
1400, yet less than 700 of you took the time to vote. Why didn't 
more students vote? 

Each year a part of your tuition goes to the Student Associa- 
tion. The people you elect are the ones who will spend this money. 
Don't you want to get your money's worth? 

Read the qualifications and goals of the candidates. Decide who 
to vote for, and then follow through with your decision and vote 
on Feb. 21st. Vote for the candidate you feel will do the best job 
for you, and the rest of the student body. 

If elected I pledge to do my best to provide you with a paper 
that you look forward to reading. 


/ Robert Jones 

P.S. I would also do my bes! to have more correspondence from 
and coverage in the paper about the happenings on the Orlando 
campus, to further unify the two campuses.

New Plant in Chattanooga 

The world's largest manufacturer of earth moving and industrial 
equipment has its eye on Chattanooga for a new plant. State of- 
ficials are largely responsible for attracting the Tokyo-based firm 
to Tennessee. The company is currently negotiating the buying 
of an existing plant on Signal Mountain Blvd., and the Mayor 
says that if all goes well, we could see 150 new jobs created.

Too Far To Walk? 

Jack Wood 

"Too far to walk" going 
once, going twice, going twelve 
times as an answer from college 
students at Southern when 
asked how they feel about at- 
tending classes in Brock Hall. 
In an informal poll, out of a 
total of twenty students, twelve 
mentioned that the walk is too 
long. It seems that the distance 
between the dorms or other 
school buildings and the 2.3 
million dollar classroom-and- 
office building has students 
leaving fifteen minutes earlier 
for class. 

Freshman Maribel Soto said, 
"It is much too far to walk for 
just one class." She explained 
that her other classes are all 
located in buildings situated 
close together, and she finds it 
very irritating to walk all the ex- 
tra way for one class. Another 
student voiced her opinion by 
saying that the school should 

Drop In 

For A Bite 
To Eat" 
Campus Kitchen 

America's #1 Snack Shop 

have built Brock Hall closer. 
When asked to elaborate, she 
replied, "They should have 
torn down Jones Hall earlier 
and built it there." 

Most students showed a 
positive attitude towards the 
new structure, but there still 
was a hint of aggravation for 
the long walk. Sophomore 
Scott Clemons says, ' 'The 
building is neat, a lot nicer to 
attend than the other buildings, 
but I freeze my can off walking 
to it in the winter. 

The question is now brought 
up whether or not there should 
be a longer break in between 
classes to allow students enough 
time to hike from one end of 
campus to the other. The 
students find this idea to be a 
way to deal with the ac- 
cumulated tardies because of 
the long walk. 

The National Debt 
The national debt, according to 3rd District Congresswoman 
Marilyn Lloyd, will be the primary topic of upcoming Congres- 
sional sessions. The Congresswoman met with Reagan aides last 
week and says that all agree that if the budget deficit is not dimi- 
nished, Reagan's 973-billion-dollar-fiscal budget will push interest 
rates even higher. Lloyd added that cuts in Social Security and 
economic development programs are not the way to pay for the 
national debt. 

New Jail and Court Systems 

The local city county jail committee is settled on a consultant to 
study the possibility of merging all the separate jail and court 
systems. Committee Vice-Chairman Tom Caldwell says that 
Moyer and Associates will look at 3 different options, all of which 
would keep the facilities in the downtown area, Moyer will charge 
about 50,000 dollars for the work. Committee members feel that 
this is a relative bargain. 

Farmers Rally 

Five thousand South Dakota farmers attended a big rally in Pierre 
Tuesday to draw attention to conditions they say have pushed 9000 
South Dakotan food producers to the steps of bankruptcy court. 
Other farmers say that they need help in securing loans so they 
can plant next spring. They also need help re-structuring the loans 
that they now have that carry such high interest rates they can 
barely pay the interest alone. 

Good company and good 
discourse are the very 
sinews of virtue.

3 Sports Commentary 


ye/ry Russell 

Hey Double A! One ques- 
tion. "Why so fast?" You 
think you're worn out after a 
game? You ought to see the 
fans drag themselves out of 
their seats messaging the backs 
of their necks. I was watching 
a Double A game with a friend 
of mine once. After 1 5 minutes 
of fast break misses, in- 
tercepted passes, and just 
typical Double A run-and-gun 
basketball, a light bulb ap- 
peared over my friend's head. 
Being a fitness buff he figured 
with a Jazzercise tape he could 
turn spectating into a form of 
aerobics. The idea fell flat, but 
a lesson can be learned. SLOW 

You guys are trying to cram 
2 hours of basketball into 40 
minutes. It would be alright if 
you guys could run the fast 
break but the stats say that each 
team is averaging 43 rebounds 
per game per team. This simp- 
ly means that a lot of shots are 
being missed. On a related sub- 
ject, the leading scorer in Dou- 
ble A is shooting a paltry 34 

percent but is leading the league 
in rebounds. Could these re- 
bounds be many of his own 

Finally, let's lose those teeny 
boppers that sit on your ben- 
ches and walk up and down the 
sidelines yelling instructions to 
the players. Do these girls know 
the game better than you guys 
or what? Come on, put them 
back in the stands where they 
belong, flirting with other spec- 
tators. Also, next time ask them 
not to wear such bright, ob- 
vious colors. 

This is not to downgrade 
Double A basketball. You guys 
have worked hard to get where 
you are now— you deserve it. 
Just don't make every play 
seem like there's only two 
seconds on the clock. Take the 
fastbreak if it's there, but if not 
slow it down and set up the 
shot. Oh, and remember, you 
DO have teammates! 

Next week look in "Hefty's 
Bag." I'm sure you won't want 
10 miss it!

Green 52 Hilderbrandt 38 

Leilani Pasos and Captain Dyer Ron- 
da Green each pumped in 12 points in 
Green's victory over Debbie Hilder- 
brandi's team Tuesday evening. Cap- 
tain Green shot well all evening and 
Pasos controlled the boards while get- 
ting support from Pauline James (6 
points), and Latonya Scurry (4 points) 
in posting their fourth victory of the 
season. Hilderbrandt was led by Bren- 
daBelden, who had 12 points, and Lucy 
Felix who added 10. It wasn't enough 
though, as Hilderbrandl's record drop- 

ped to 1-6. 

Co-captain Ken Warren scored 30 
points and pulled down 35 rebounds in 
McFadden's win over Green Tuesday 
evening. McFadden shot out to an ear- 
ly lead and kept pouring it on as Green's 
team suffered from poor shooting and 
the fact that Iain Davis collected four 
fouls with six minutes left in the first 
half. At one point in the first half, 
McFadden led 42-17. Green hacked 
away at the lead and twice came within 
10 points during the second half. 
Charlie Green then came off the bench 
to score six quick points and helped 
McFadden rebuild their lead. Henry 
Coleman added 25 points for McFad- 
den who recorded their fourth win of 
the season. Green was led by twin 
towers Davis and Mark Murphy who 
each poured in 22 points. 

Hobbs 67 Selby 66 
Hobbs oudasted Selby in overtime to 
post a one-point-win. With only 3 
seconds to play in regulation David 
Smith hit a three pointer to send the 
game into overtime. Fullbright and 
Gerke combined for 30 points to lead 
their team, while Ron Aguilera scored 
21 points (3 of which were three- 
pointers) to lead all scorers, and Der- 
rick Richardson chipped in 10 in a fine 

Davis 98 Wise 73 

Davis' team had four players in double 
figures and Davis himself scored 40 
points to lead his team to a 25 points 
blowout of Wise. The only bright spot 
for Wise was the great effort turned in 
by Freshman David Denton who scored 
39 points to try to keep the game close. 
But the offense of Davis was not to be 
stopped in this game, with Nottleson 
keeping Davis' team fired up and chip- 
ping in 4 points to boot.

You might argue that $6,980 
is still a high price compared to

institution does not have the 
monetary advantages that a 
public university has. Nor does 
a university have the Christian

feses, education proponents 

he budget proposals incor- 
rate many of the worst fears 
iressed by educators since the 
member election. 

id while education groups 
it year succeeded in pressur- 
Congress to overrule most 
the president's education 
Jts, officials worry they may 
' as lucky this time. 
gan wants to cut next 
student aid budget by 
billion, a 27 percent 
crease from the $9 billion 
ropriated for the current fun- 
year, according to Educa- 
Department spokesman 
mean Helmrich. 
Under Reagan's plan, the en- 
education budget would be 
'shed by nearly $3 billion- 
°m $18.4 billion to $15.5 
lion-for the upcoming fiscal 

'But (the current $18.4 
jlion budget) includes a $750 
1 appropriation for pay- 
er" of prior Pell Grants and 

Guaranteed Student Loans 
(GSLs) debts, so we're really 
only talking about a little over 
a $2 billion cut," Helmrich 

Student aid will suffer most 
of the decrease. 

Under Reagan's proposal: 

Students with family incomes 
over $32,500 will be cut from 
the GSL program, beginning 
with the 1986-87 school year. 

Those with family incomes 
above $25,000 would be denied 
Pell Grants, National Direct 
Student Loans (NDSLs), or 
College Work-Study funds. 

The State Student Incentive 
Grant and Supplemental 
Educational Opportunity Grant 
programs will be eliminated. 

Assistance programs for in- 
ternational education, foreign 
language study, and the Fund 
for the Improvement of Post- 
Secondary Education will be 
cut drastically or eliminated. 

Funding will be frozen for 
remedial education, block 
grants, handicapped education, 
bilingual learning programs, 
and vocational and adult 
education programs. 

Needless to say, Reagan's 
proposals are drawing harsh 
criticism from education 


"We see (the proposals) 
very major assault on education 
and student aid," says Dallas 
Martin, executive director of 
the National Association of 
Student Financial Aid Ad- 

"More than one million 
students will be made ineligible 
by the $25,000 ceiling on the 
Pell Grant, NDSL, and Work- 
Study programs," Martin 

"Roughly one million more 
will be displaced by the $32,500 
cap on GSLs, and another 
300,000 will be affected by the 
cuts in state grant programs," 
he predicts. 

Congress must still review 
and approve Reagan's pro- 
posals, or pass its own version 
of the education budget. 

Martin frets he and his col- 
leagues face a hard battle to 
beat back the proposed cuts. 

"We're in a totally different 
environment this year," he ex- 
plains. "Last year was an elec- 
tion year and no one wanted to 
do anything too unpopular." 

This year, he says, "because 
of the tremendous pressure to 
control the deficit, we should 
not assume that Congress will 

automatically step in and reduce the c

m Shh! This Is a Library 

I often want to hear those words when I am in the library. Un- 
foJlate,r?do not. The noise in that facility .s too ou ^ when 
one considers that a library >s supposed o be a qu et place to 
study. In my experiences with libranes, pubhc or private the noise 
level was kept to a minimum, if there was any noise at aU. This 
is not a characteristic of the McKee Library. Last semester while 
studying on the third floor, all of a sudden, I heard an individual, 
also on the third floor, yell to someone at die library counter below 
us In reply, someone from below yeUed back. To my surprise, 
neither one was told to keep his voice low. Considering the act 
a rare incident, I eventually forgot about it. However, in subse- 
quent trips, the noise at times seemed to be just as great. I pointed 
out this fact to the Head Librarian, Mr. Charles Davis, and since 
then, the situation has improved. The problem does not fall en- 
tirely on his shoulders, but the library is still noisy! 

There are places in the McKee Library that are very quiet, such 
as the Reference Room and the Nursing Lab. But why should a 
student be driven to one of these places if in theory, the whole 
library is supposed to be quiet. The noise level is particularly high 
on the second floor in the afternoon. This area is the place where 
one checks out books, enters and exits, and does his primary 
research, so understandably, there is a certain amount of noise 
that should be tolerated. But if one finds that his studying leads 
him to the library, and he wishes to study at a second floor car- 
rel, then he should not be driven to another area because the later 
one is quieter. 

The logical situation is for the library personnel to emphasize 
to any individual that talks above a whisper to keep his voice low. 
The act is not a pleasing one but comes with the job. Because 
loud talkers are not asked to lower their voices, some students 
fail to realize that the McKee Library is supposed to be a quiet 
facility, and not a social area. When this act is done, more students 
will find the library a logical alternative for studying.

Dear Editors: 

This letter is in response to 
Harry Brown Ill's article, 
"Why A Black History Week, " 
in your February 14 issue. Mr. 
Brown's response to the ques- 
tion, "Why have Black History 
Week and not Chinese History 
Week or some other ethnic 
history week?", does not, in 
my opionion, answer the ques- 
tion. He says that a group who 
is treated as he describes, 
reserves the right to celebrate 
man's realization of equality 
for all. First, if Black History 
Week is a celebration of equali- 
ty of all, then why is it tilted so 
narrowly. Why is it not a 
"Brotherhood Week" (or non- 
sex "Peoplehood"). 

His entire argument of 
equality, acceptance, reuniting 
brothers and sisters has little to 
do with a Black History Week. 
Black History Week is a focus 
on the black race as a special 
race deserving special treatment 
because of injustices heaped 
upon it in Lie past. Black 
History Week can be fairly 
defended because of this past 


Is Judging on the Menu 

. Lily a Wagner 
I deposited my luggage at the

ough the airport. My hectic

athless, but now I had time 
(vaste before my flight left.

i I do something about that 
igry feeling I had ignored

I restaurants I had known, 
p my stomach kept telling

eyes focused on a sign- 
: Good Earth Food Bar! No 
ivitation needed! I 
nptly took the remaining 
at the counter and reached 
i menu. Business boomed; 
ful personnel dashed 
nd, trying to meet the 
[ands of customers' as 

hungry as I. While I waited I 
pondered over the menu and 
scrutinized my seatmates. 

Right next to me sat a cou- 
ple of neatly-dressed, well- 
behaved, rather solemn young 
men. Aha! I thought. Mis- 
sionaries from a well-known ac- 
tive denomination based in 
Utah. I decided I wasn't in any 
mood to hear a mini-sermon. I 
quickly turned my attention to 
the menu and ignored the other 
customers. Then I noticed that 
the young man closest to me 
had just received his order, and 
it looked exactly like what I 
wanted to eat! I glanced back 
at my menu, but couldn't 
discover just what that tantaliz- 
ing item might be. Curiosity 
and hunger won out. I turned 
to the young man and asked, 
"What's that, and where is it 
on the menu?" 

That led to the beginning of 
a pleasant conversation. I spoke 

cautiously, not wanting to be 
drawn into some religious ex- 
change at that moment. After 
a while he asked, "Are you on 
a business trip?" 

"Yes," I replied. "I'm a col- 
lege English teacher, and I'm

sooner had I said that when I 
thought, uh-oh, I just gave him 
the opening he needed. 

He answered, "I'm a profes- 
sional hockey player with the 
Detroit Redwings." 

My astonishment must have 
showed. He smiled. "Haven't 
you ever met a professional 
hockey player before?" 

I hadn't. Neither did I 
remember being caught quite so 
off guard before. An interesting 

conversation followed. I learn- 
ed much about professional 
hockey, broken noses (his 
slightly crooked nose had been 
broken four times), and 
violence in sports. He listened 
politely to talk of English 
teaching and Seventh-day 

Our meal ended and we 
dashed off to catch our flights. 
I 'm not sure what he took away 
from that encounter, but I 
learned once again not to be 
hasty in judging people. 
"...God sees not as man sees, 
for man looks at the outward 
appearance, but the Lord looks 
at the heart." (1 Sam. 16:7, 
New American Standard) 

Life gives us abundant op- 
portunities forjudging others; 
this is true in the collegiate set- 
ting as well. Does that daily 
routine include some judging 
perhaps? Faculty see many 
faces in their classes. Do they 

give students a chance to prove 
themselves, or do they make 
snap judgments just like I did 
with my friend the hockey 
player? Students meet faculty A 
whose names have previously ^& 
been simply names on a roster. 
Do students also make snapj 
judgments and thereby possibly 
hinder their own learning as 
well as a potentially positive 
relationship with faculty? Peo- 
ple meet. People judge. Does it 
have to be inevitable? 

No matter how perceptive we 
think we are, we DO make 
mistakes in judgment— 
particularly in the area of 
human nature. Let's give each 
other a proper chance, and 
avoid that unnecessary item on 
life's menu-judging!

For several years now, the 
voter turnout for election of 
Student Association officers 
has dwindled. Why don't more 
students campaign, why don't

that students just don't feel that 
their vote will count. Whatever

Dear Editors, 

The faculty and administration 
of Southern College deserve a 
magnanimous "Thank You," 
for not conducting morning I 

classes on Tuesday, the 12th of 
February because of bad 
weather, or was it in observa- 
tion of Lincoln's Birthday? 
Whatever the occasion, the 
decision by Dr. Allen, Wagner 
and their cohorts was very 
much appreciated!!!! 

Many students had a great 
time throwing, falling in and

was even on the radio, with all 
the other area school closings. 
Were there any students 
wondering what to do? Not to

Try Our "Pontiff"; It's Delicious 


Associated Press 

Denver-Be it a touch of 
divine intervention or just good 
business, the Padre Restaurant, 
run by the Denver area's largest 
Catholic parish, is a secular 

The Disciples are sand- 
wiches, the Prodigal Son a 
hamburger, and the Pontiff-at 
$11.95 the most expensive 
menu item-bone\ess prime rib. 

Also on the menu is the 
Mother Superior club and 
Adam's Pride and Eve's 
Pleasure-also known as chef 
and shrimp salads. 

The Rev. Fred McCallin was 
inspired to open the Padre 10 
years ago. With the Rocky 
Mountains as a backdrop, it sits 
about 20 miles south of 
downtown Denver, off In- 
terstate 25. 

The parish-run restaurant 
naturally follows the example 
set by Christ, who "multiplied 
the loaves and fishes many 

times" and dined with many of 
those whose lives he touched, 
McCallin says. 

Housed inside the large, 
starkly modern brick complex 
that is the St. Thomas More 
Center, the Padre has some of 
the trappings of a chic fem bar, 
including greenery and stained 
glass. But there are pews in the 
lobby for those waiting for a 
table, and McCallin table-hops 
in his black-and-white garb. 

Despite the priest's presence 
and the clever menu, Catholi- 
cism is not the main course. 
The Padre is frequented by 
business people and families 
who do not belong to the 
parish, and rabbis and Protes- 
tant ministers also drop in. 

That's the idea, McCallin

about Catholics have an oppor-

On Monday the 18th, we saw 
the last match of the semifinals. 
The two teams playing were 

Hobbs and Goodrum. Hobbs 
took an early lead in the game, 
but Goodrum quickly came 
back to go on top by a large 
margin. Gradually, Hobbs 
began to close the gap between 
them and eventually tied the 
score. Up until the end of the 
game, both teams were running 
virtually neck and neck. Then

"Not that we're going to go 
out and evangelize them." 

In fact, there is a mezuza, a 
container of prayers placed on 
the doors of Jewish 
households, found usually on 
the Padre door. "Rabbis have 
come out here and enjoyed the 
fact that we have one," 
McCallin said. 

The Padre pays taxes and is 
run like any other restaurant, 
says its general manager, Don 

McCallin says the restaurant, 
which offers "good food and 
generous portions at affordable 
prices," usually breaks even. 
Anything left over goes into 
parish coffers. 

A drawing of a roly-poly 
padre decorates the menu, pro- 
mising "Heavenly Food, 
Spirits, and More!" 

Cashier Nancy Olsen says the 
menus are a hit with surprised, 
first-time diners. 

"We can't keep enough 
menus in hand, ' ' she says, 
laughing. "They want to take 
them home for proof." 

Dinners can be topped off 
with Satan's Temptations such 
as mud pie or cheesecake, and 
coffee is in the "Fire and 
Brimstone" category. 

The Padre has a license to 
serve Heavenly Hops (beer) and 
Holy Spirits (the hard stuff),

Campus News Digest Service 

Apathy: it's a national pro- 
blem, especially among teens. 
Adolescent behavior experts see 
more and more teenagers with 
similar symptoms-they're 
bored, depressed and unable to 
think realistically about their 

Although many parents and 
teachers may think teenagers 
are just " going through a 
stage." the problem is deeper, 
and depression can have scary 
effects. In the past 20 years, 
teenage suicides have tripled, 
according to the American 
Association of Sucidology in 
Denver. An increasing number 
of adolescents are being 
hospitalized for depression. 
After high school, an increas- 
ing number of grown 
children-20 million in 1982-stay 
at home rather than find a place 
of their own. 

Psychologist Elaine Moor, 
director of an intervention pro- 
gram at Ada S. McKinley Com- 
munity Services in Chicago, has 
seen more teens who are 
depressed and apathetic in the 
past five years, teens who "are 
unequipped to make the tran- 
sition from late childhood to 
self-sufficient young 


Moor believes that a major 
reason stems from overprotec- 
tion by parents, who sometimes 
make excuses for child ir- 
responsibility. Adolescents can- 

not learn the consequence of 
their actions if parents cover for 
them. It "creates an unreal 
world for them." 

Another effect pf over- 
protection is a self-centered, 
"the world owes me" attitude. 
Moor says teens can turn to 
depression and apathy when 
they realize they are underskill- 
ed to make it in the world. 

Society is partly to blame for 
the confusion during teen years. 
The nuclear threat, interna- 
tional upheaval, high 
unemployment and rising prices 
brings about the future when it 
might not even come?". 

Our high-tech, fast-paced 
world of communications con- 
trasts sharply with the 
classroom, and teen apathy cai 
transfer to teacher apathy. 
MTV, the cable music station, 
may also contribute to disorien- 
tation because of the 
glamorous, artsy portrayal of 
musicians, fashions, etc. 

All right. All this is depress- 
ing enough. What can be done 
to help? 

Teenage apathy should not 
be ignored, hoping it will be 
outgrown, Moor says. A. 
reassertion of adult authority, 
setting appropriate teenage 
behavior patterns and giving in- 
creasing responsibility will help 
teens face the reality of becom- 
ing adults.

Plans for Memorial Auditorium 

The April opening of the Trade Center might cut into the 
business customarily directed toward the Memorial Auditorium. 
Manager Clyde Hawkins says that he has plans to make 
auditorium business "boom." "We hate to lose any event," Clyde 
said, "but it will open up dates we haven't been able to utilize. 
The live events are ticketed events which bring much more of a 
revenue than an exhibit show." Hawkins also pointed out that 
fundraising functions are another way to drum up money to 
renovate Memorial Auditorium into a fabulous concert hall.

Minister was killed in the crash, and three members of the 
minister's party were also among the victims. The cause of the 
crash was unknown as of Tuesday.

A China arlines jumbo jet was forced to make an emergency

Rees Series Weekend 
Begins Tonight 


7. Randolph Thuesdee 

The Rees Series, the highlight 
of Southern College's basket- 
ball season, begins tonight with 
the first game beginning at 7:00 
i. As the traditional end to 
the basketball intramural 
ion, the Rees Series tourna- 
ment is one not only enjoyed by 
those who play, but also for 
those who attend. 

The Rees Series was named 
in honor of Dr. C. N. Rees, 
President of Southern Mis- 
sionary College from 
1958-1967. Dr. Rees was an 
avid basketball fan and when 
he retired, the school held the 
tournament in honor of him. 

The Series began as a Dorm 
vs. Village tournament based 
on a best two-out-of-three, but 
the format soon turned into 
what has made the Series the 
classic as it is today, class vs. 

Tonight's first game features 
the Juniors vs. the Freshmen. 
The Juniors, the second seeded 

team, are comprised of David 
Butler, Greg Cain, Steve 
Carlson, Henry Coleman, 
Mark Murphy, Doug Rowland- 
Captain, Bob Rodgers, J. Ran- 
dolph Thuesdee, and Tim 
Wessman. The Juniors are 
coached by Reed Christman, 
who is coaching a Rees Series 
team for the second time. The 
Freshman are coached by Ron 
Qualley and included on the 
team are Mike Accardo, Kent 
Boyle, Iain Davis, Toby 
Fowler, Eric Hope, Jim 
Malone, Jon Marcum, Bob 
Murdoch, and Dave Nottleson. 
The Freshmen are considered 
the third seeded team, primari- 
ly of (heir Rees Series 

In tonight's second game, it's 
the top-seeded team, the 
Seniors, vs. the Fourth seeded 
team, the Sophomores. Led by 
Mike Gentry, the Senior team 
includes Bob Stephan, Eric 
Mock, Jon Miller, Vito Mon- 

tiperto, Ron Aguilera, Jim 
Hakes, Anthony Peets, and 
Doug Copess. The Seniors are 
coached by Everette Schlisner, 
who is making his fifth straight 
coaching assignment in the 
Rees Series. The Sophomores 
are coached by Mike 
Meriweather. Meriweather is 
making his second coaching 
assignment and his team in- 
cludes David Green, Tony 
McFadden, Ken Warren, 
Charley Green, Jeff Davis, 
Kevin Williams, Rob Williams 
and Loren Grant. 

This promises to be a most 
exciting time on the campus 
and students are strongly en- 
couraged to come out and root 
for their respective classes. 

Tonights victorious teams 
will play a one game playoff 
Saturday night after the con- 
solation game between 
tonight's losing teams. Satur- 
day night's action gets under 
way at 7:30 p.m.

This design is called the

they will allow the prediction of

for interesting molecules. Such 
prediction has already been

the former case, there is very

Competition: Good or Bad? Letters. . . 

Nearly a month has gone by since the College Bowl season end- 
ed. It ended with a champion who competed in a field of twelve 
/--^ teams to reach that goal. When the team captains were forming 
_y these groups, certain ones talked of individuals that had refused 
to play because he/she felt that competition is wrong. But is it? 
Each individual is entitiled to his opinion. If he believes that 
competition is wrong, then he should not compete. The reasons 
that have been given are the following: it glorifies one person over 
another, it easily leads to tempers flaring, it leads to an unhealthy 
amount of time being devoted to attaining a goal. All of these 
problems are true of competition in general, but that should be 
qualified. Competition isn't bad or wrong for a person; the love 
of competition is. 

When a person loves to compete, one finds that he is putting 
an excessive amount of time in doing just that. Of course, in a 
capitalistic society, a person cannot help but compete against his 
fellow neighbor. However, the "obsessed" individual goes beyond 
what competition cannot be avoided. What may be said is that 
this person loves or dislikes himself so much that the competi- 
tion is a way of stroking himself. Whether competition leads to 
glorifying himself or the love himself leads to competing, .the truth 
is that the subject or object of that sentence should be "the love 
of competition". 

My experience with competition has led me to believe that it 
can be healthy for an individual. It has taught me to strive harder, 
not for the purpose of glorifying myself, but for the purpose of 
doing a job that I and others can appreciate. It has generated 
friendships that I may not have made in another context. And 
it has given me self-esteem. I am not an exception; others have 
experienced the same. 

To say that when an individual is playing some sport that he 
is committing a wrong act is to have a limited view of competi- 
tion (and of sports). Often friendships have been strengthened 
because of the ineraction on a ball field. A parallel may be found 
in the world of technology. The better car, the better computer, 
the better household appliance has been made because of com- 
petition. Of course, there are other motives for making the bet- 
ter "anything," but man still is the one who profits (not necessari- 
ly economically in this case). 
Competition is healthy. The love of competition isn't.

Dear Editor: 

When I first read "How to 
be a Pastor's Peach" by 
Reinhold Smith (Feb. 21), I ad- 
mit it was amusing. I even 
laughed out loud at the bit 
about the screwdriver. But I 
read it again and began to feel 
a certain uneasiness with the 
subtle underlying ridicules this 
article presented. At the very 
first, I find Smith's article an 
affront to women in particular, 
and more specifically, to wives, 
girlfriends, and fiances of 
religion or theology majors. 
For Smith to assume that to- 
day's only satisfaction comes 
from the legalistic ritual of 
adhering to archaic (and stupid)

If the Southern Accent (and 
you too, I would assume) do 
not allow ethnic jokes to be 
published, why do you allow 
gender jokes? Referring to 
"How to be a Pastor's Peach," 
I would like to call Mr. Smith's 
attention (and anyone else's) to 
the fact that there is a place for 
this kind of writing-arid that's 
in the individual's personal 
files. Don't publish this kind of 
stuff, please. It may be deem- 

ed funny by some, and I admit 
I laughed, but let's keep in 
mind that this is a CHRIS-

The Christian and Relationships 

An Interview with Alberta Mazat 



Lori Selby 

Last week, Dr. Alberta 
Mazat spoke on relationships 
for Southern College's Week of 
Spiritual Emphasis. Every 
evening she stressed the impor- 
tance of establishing strong 
relationships with male and 
female friends and husbands 
and wives. Dr. Mazat also gave 
advice on how to strengthen 
these relationships. 

In an interview with the 
Southern Accent, Dr. Mazat 
reitorated these points while 
allowing us to know more 
about her. 

Accent: What is your title or 

Mazat: I am a professor of 
Marriage and Family Therapy 
in the Department of Social 
Relations at Loma Linda 

Accent: When did you get in- 
to counseling? 

Mazat: I decided to go back 
to school after our youngest 
daughter started grade one. I 
had been a nurse before, so I 
wanted something that used the 
ability to interact with people. 
I got a Bachelor's degree in 
Sociology and a master's degree 
with emphasis on Marriage and 
Family Counseling. 

Accent: How do you like it? 
Mazat: I love it! I love 
teaching; I'm inspired and stret- 
ched in my teaching experience. 
I also like counseling and group 
therapy. I don't have a large 
practice, but all the teachers 
have an ongoing private prac- 
tice, so they will be in the pro- 
cess of actually doing what they 
are teaching. 

Accent: What about your 
family and other outside 

Mazat: My husband is an 
anesthesiologist who works for 
the university. We have four 
children. We love to travel, we 
sing for several organizations, 
and we walk every day. I love 
to read. 

Accent: Many practices seem 
to be more acceptable today 
than they used to be. Does the 
Christian lifestyle change as 
society changes? 

Mazat: I think the lifestyles 
change; I don't think God's 
principles for our life change. 
It used to be that all men wore 
beards. When they took them 
off, it grew bad to wear a 
beard. Now it's back to being 
O.K. Styles change, but God's 
principles, moral values, never 

Accent: How has the sexual 
revolution affected Christian 

Mazat: Societal changes 
seem to affect Christian groups, 
too. You can find Christian 
groups who will accept 
premarital experimentation and 

growing will be going 
backwards. Helping marriage 
to grow should be a pleasure, 
but there must be effort, invest- 
ment, and involvement. That's 
all necessary. 

Accent: What steps can 
young people take to avoid hav- 
ing a marriage that ends up as 
an unfortunate statistic? 

Mazat: Marriages never first 
suddenly fall apart. They 
disintegrate over time, begin- 
ning with just not working on 
the marriage, dwelling on the 
negatives, considering divorce 
as an alternative, and finally 
goind ahead and doing it. I 
think that keeping your own 
personal relationship with God 
is of prime importance, also 
time spent sharing devotions 
with one another. And on the 
social side-spending time 
together, keeping their sexual 
relationship vital, taking advan- 
tage of good church programs 
for marriage enrichment. Being 
very much aware that a mar- 
riage doesn't last without con- 
stant stoking of the fires- 
demonstrations of love and af- 
fection, treats, poems, notes, 
all kinds of things. I think I can 

even some open marriage type 
things for people who are mar- 
ried. But to me no sex before 
marriage is a moral standard. 
There's safety within the boun- 
daries God has given us for sex- 
ual expression. 

Accent: How has divorce af- 
fected families in the Adventist 
church? Why? 

Mazat: We have a lower level 
of commitment to marriage. 
Our expectations of marriage 
are much higher than they us- 
ed to be. We expect marriage to 
fulfill all our physical, social, 
and emotional needs, and if it

Mazat: Every young coupJ

they really explore their f© 
in depth. Some areas ford 
sion: finances, in-laws, w J 
roles, religious exercisej

another, settling conflicts. T^| 
should observe their 
families for things to inclu 
their relationship and things J 
avoid. They should idenufj 
their strong and weak j 
and talk, talk, talk. 

Mazat: I'm always really ei 
couraged when I met 
people because I sen; 
desire on their parts t 
right thing. Maybe they're g< 
ing to show the generation Ti 
in that there's a better way J 
doing things, since we havenl 
always left a good record oj 
demonstrating these t 

doesn't, we give it up too easi- 
ly. Divorce isn't less traumatic, 
but it is less frowned upon. In- 
stead of working on the one 
they've got, people in this ex- 
pendable society give up on the 
first marriage and try again. 
Unfortunately, the failure rate 
for second marriages is even 
worse than for first marriages. 
That should tell us something. 
I have a lot of optimism when 
people recognize that marriages 
have to be worked on, that they 
don't come naturally. It's 
cultivating-helping it grow

Twenty-three Southern Col- 
lege scuba students plus instruc- 
tors and helpers headed to 
Florida last Thursday night for 
the scuba class checkout dive. 
The trip completed the final re- 
quirement for Y.M.C.A. scuba 
certification. After driving all 
night and stopping at Camp 
Kulaqua, the students were div- 
ing in Troy Springs by 10:30 
a.m., Friday. In the afternoon, 
the class went to Manatee 
Springs. Sabbath was spent 
relaxing at Camp Kulaqua. 

Sunday, the diving was done 

in the cave-like environment of 

Ginnie Springs, which gave 

some students the opportunity 

try walking on the ceiling 

and other stun 

The overall 
trip seemed to be very positive. 
Alice Rosyzk, senior biology 
major "said, "Ginnie Springs 
was the most exciting because 
of the underwater caves." 
Mark Schiefer liked Ginnie 
Springs where he did acrobatics 
in the cave. He said, "It doesn't 
matter your skill on land; you 
are a pro in the water! Triple 
somersaults, back flips, and 
cork screws are effortless." 
Maria Vitorovich really enjoyed 
the trip, saying, "I wish I were

Gooodrum Captures College Bowl 

Melanie Boyd 

The championship round of 
the College Bowl was played 
during chapel on Tuesday, the 
26th of February. The two 
teams playing against each 
other were Russell Duerksen 
and Keith Goodrum. 

Duerksen's team members 
were Ron Aguilera, Heather 
Blomeley, and Tim Lale. 
Goodrum's team consisted of 
Rob Clayton, Fred Liebrand, 
Kevin Rice, and Erin Stton. 

Excitement was in the air, 
only between the two 

teams, but in the audience as 
well. As play got under way, 
Duerksen took an early com- 
manding lead. However, 
Goodrum's team began a 
quick, steady comeback. Upon 
taking the lead, Goodrum slow- 
ly increased it to a 200-85 point 
spread. Duerksen frantically 
tried to bridge that point gap, 
but each time Duerksen 
answered a question, Goodrum 
was able to answer the subse- 
quent one. The final score was 
265-180, Goodrum's victory. 

C.F.H. Henry to Speak 
for Staley Lecture Series 

Because the College Bowl is 
a double-elimination tourna- 
ment and Duerksen had entered 
the final undefeated, a 
10-minute tie breaker game was 
played, deciding the champions 
of the 1985 College Bowl. 

As play began in the final 
match, Duerksen answered the 
first question, but Goodrum 
once again took the lead and 
captured the johampionship in 
an 80-10 win." 

Congratulations to Good- 
rum's team for his victory.

Arizona State Student Sues Father for Education 

Claiming "severe mental anguish" 18-year-old Elise Ely wants 
$250,000 from her father who refuses to honor a 1978 separation 
agreement to pay her living expenses while she attends college. 

When the Ely's divorced in 1978, Mr. Ely agreed to pay educa- 
tion expenses and $250 a month child support for Elise, says Brian 
Kelley, Mr. Ely's attorney. 

But the support payments ended on Elise's 18th birthday, and 
Mr. Ely said her said her request for $1,400 a month in college 
expenses was too much. 

Divorce is Cheap Compared to Out-of-State Tuition 

A North Texas State woman plans to save about $1 ,000 in tui- 
tion by her $7 December marriage to and future $5 1 divorce from 
a Texas man. 

When the woman discovered she was credits short of her plan- 
ned December graduation, a Texas resident friend suggested they 
marry to cut her spring tuition bill from $1,300 to $300. 

"1 didn't apply for a student loan because 1 wasn't planning 
on being in school another semester," the woman says. "By the 
time I found all this out, it was too late (to apply)." 

The students, who live apart, won't give their names fearing 
the university will sue them for willfully defrauding the state.

home a five foot shot only 30 seconds 
into the game. Later, Mellert got his 
2l'st goal of the season four minutes 
later on a rebound shot to give his team 
a 2-0 advantage. 

Alter Mellen's lead went to 4-0, 
Lacra started a comeback. Doug Copess 
scored an unassisted goal at 9:50 and 
Jeff Potter connected after a two-on- 
one pass from Copess chopped the lead 
in half. 

John Montieth then tipped in 
Lounsberry's 20-foot wrist shot with 3 
minutes left in the second period to give 
Mellert a little breathing room going in- 
to the third period. 

Doug Coppess scored two goals in the 
first two minutes of the third to bring 
Lacra within one. At the 8:59 mark, 
Brian Pollett on an assist from Coppess 
tied the game as he beat goalie Vito 

Then with Potter in the penalty box, 
Lounsberry won the game with his ten- 
foot wrist shot that barely caught the 
upper right comer. After _ 
delay, the official signaled the goal

as if to say "Oh." 

Mellert and company held on to post 
the only undefeated record in the league 
(5-0) while Lacra's record fell to 4-1 
with the loss. 

Coach Jaecks said, "It was the best 
hockey game at SC in three years. A 
great game."

Kent Boyle scored six goals in his 
team's romp over South Tuesday. 
South, whose team stayed with 
Mellert's team for a while the previous 
night, couldn't get anything going in 
this game. Boyle got his hat trick in the 
second period and got three more goals 
in the third. Steve Pollett scored two 
goals for Boyle's team whose record im- 
proved to 4-1. With the second defeat 
in two nights, South's record dropped 
to 2-4.

Where Did the Midwest Go? 

Associated Press 

Americans see the Middle 
West, the mythical heartland of 
the country from which the na- 
tion draws its values, as mov- 
ing farther west as the East 
becomes less rural, a survey 

Based upon their location, 
Americans have different ideas 
about where the "Midwest" is 
located, says a study published 
Sunday. But many seem to 
agree that the heartland is not 
where it used to be, the report 

James R. Shortridge, a pro- 
fessor of geography at the 
University of Kansas, says a 
survey of 1,941 college students 
nationwide indicates the 
Midwest has now moved to the 
Great Plains states and left 
behind traditionally considered 
as part of the Middle West, 
such as Illinois and Michigan. 

The term Middle West 
evokes images of farms, small 
towns and friendly people, he 
says, and as the reality of these 
images moves farther west, so 
do people's ideas of where this 
region is located. 

Most Americans now think 
of the Midwwest as the central 

region of the country that in- 
cludes Nebraska, Iowa, Kan- 
sas, South Dakota and 
Missouri, the report says. 

"The vernacular region has 
shifted westward," Shortridge 
says. "Omaha and Lincoln, 
Neb., lie near the region's 

People began developing the 
myth of the Midwest as the true 
heartland of America around 
1880, he said in a telephone 

"The East, which had been 
considered the core of values, 
was perceived as being full of 
foreigners who had strange 
religions and values," he said. 
"The 'true America' was then 
thought to be in the rural 
Midwest of the day, where peo- 
ple worked hard, practiced Jef- 
fersonian democracy and 
upheld 'traditional' values." 

Since the beginning of this 
century, the Middle West tradi- 
tionally had been described by 
social scientists and writers as 
the 12 states extending from 
Ohio westward through Kansas 
and northward to the Canadian 
border, he reports in the Annals

Safety Awareness Day Kicks Off Today 

March 21 has been 
designated Campus Wide Safe- 
ty Awareness Day. The Student 
Health Service is the sponsor of 
the event and has invited 
twenty-two state, county, and 
local agencies, as well as certain 
auxiliaies, to show their 
displays on safety awareness. 

Eleanor Hanson, R.N., 
related that some of the agen- 
cies that will be participating in 
the event are the American Red 
Cross, the Tennessee Depart- 
ment of Safety, the Food and 

Drug Administration, and the 
Chattanooga Speech and Hear- 
ing Center. 

Some of the topics of the 
displays are fire safety, sports 
and recreational safety, crime 
protection, and motor vehicle 
operation safety. 

Mrs. Hanson cites three 
reasons why a safety fair is be- 
ing put on this year: 1) A poll 
taken a few years ago showed 
that safety is the health educa- 
tion topic students are most 
concerned with. 2) The Health 

Service has found time this year 
to arrange the programs 
because fewer illnesses have oc- 
curred on campus. 3) The fair 
allows healthy students to 
benefit from the Health 

The staff of the Health Ser- 
vice encourages students to take 
time out and look at some of 
the displays. The agencies will

Song Of A Frustrated Calculus Student 
(To the tune of "I Can't Fight This Feel- 
ing" by REO Speedwagon) 

Lori Heinsman 

I can't do my calculus any longer 

And yet I'm still afraid to let it go 

What started out as friendship has grown older 

I only wish I had the strength to let it show 

1 tell myself that I can't do this forever 
I say there is no reason for my fear 
But I feel so insecure when we're together 
You give my life distraction 
You- make everything so drear 

And even as I wander 

I'm keeping you in sight 

You're a thorn in my side 

On an otherwise pleasant night 

And I'm getting further than I ever thought I mi 

And I can't fight this feeling anymore 
I've forgetten why I like this class before 
It's time to drop this book onto the floor 
And throw away the Solutions Manual forever 

Oh, I can't do my' calculus anymore 
I've forgetten all the math I knew before 
And if I have to crawl upon the floor 
Go crashing through the Records Office door 
t take this calculus anymore! 

College Press Service 

A transfer student successful- 
ly' has challenged-at least for 
the moment-one of the na- 
tion's last honor systems to re- 
quire students to snitch on cam- 
pus cheaters. 

Princeton inadvertently has 
admitted Wade Randlett, 20, 
despite Randlett's refusal to 
abide by the school's 92-year- 
old student honor code. 
Though signing a pledge to 
uphold the code is required for 
admission to Princeton, 
Randlett, who transferred from 
the University of California at 
Berkley, objects to the provi- 
sion requiring students to 
report cheaters. 

"If you had an honor code 
where there was no clause 
about turning people in, honor 
would be much better served," 
Randlett says. 

"Then someone can come 
through here (Princeton) and 
say 'I could have cheated. 
There was nobody to turn me 
in,'" he says. 

Most universities agree. 
Many schools that have student 
honor codes have deleted pro- 
visions requiring student to turn 
in cheaters. 

"We want to instill a feeling 
of honor," says Amy Jarmon, 
academic support director at 
the College of William and 
Mary, whose honor code 
deleted its snitch requirement in 
the early 1970s. 

The University of West 
Virginia made a similar change. 
Stanford's honor code requires 
student only to "take an active 
part" in stopping cheating. 

"It makes more sense to give 
students a range of options," 
says Stanford judicial affairs 
officer Sally Cole. 

"Students could, for exam- 
ple, make disapproving noises 
in class if they saw cheating," 
she notes. "You can extinguish 
a lot of behaviors with social 
pressure. Cheating is one of 

Cole says a survey found 20 
percent of Stanford students 
say they ignore instances of 

A random sample of schools 
shows that aside from 
Princeton, only the U.S.A. 
military academies require 
students to turn in cheaters. 

Military cadets do not, 
however, have to sign pledges 
to abide by the code in order to 
gain admission. 

Princeton officials decline to 
comment on the content of the 
school's honor code, saying 
that students are responsible for 

Dean Joan Girgus did, 
however, call the code "the 
heart of our existence." 

Student members of the 
honor code committee could 
not be reached for comment. 

They discovered Randlett's 
refusal to sign the pledge only 
after Randlett himself told 
them about it. 

Princeton administrators 
decided to admit Randlett 
anyway because it was their 

But they're making him take 
all his tests in a room separate 
from his colleagues, under the 
watchful eye of a graduate

what your actual stand is. We'd 
like to throw you out but we

that the eastern part of the

the rural area that is an impor-

Industrial centers such as 
Detroit and Cleveland do not

Duane Houck, Biology Professor Furthers Plant Research 

volved i 

\fichael J. Battistone 

RIt had been said that great 
hings often come in small 
"packages, and the faculty of 
■outhern College are 
■emonstrating that this holds 
Rrue for great ideas and small 
institutions as well. 
I For a number of years, Dr. 
IDuane Houck, Professor of 
[Biology, has been conducting 
|studies of the hormones in- 
budding plants. Last 
, in response to a paper he 
former student Loren 
berg submitted, the 
:arch Corporation 

presented him with a $2,000 
grant to continue his work. 

The Corporation is a private 
organization located in New 
York, which makes awards to 
mailer colleges that may not as 
ikely receive grants as would 
arger institutions. 

Since the paper appeared in 
1983, r eprints have been re- 
quested by twenty-nine scien- 
representing universities, 
agricultural experiment sta- 
tions, botanical gardens, and 
other institutions in five states 
and fourteen countries around 
the world." 

The study focuses on the 
"life plant" (Bryophyllum 
calycinum) an interesting plant 
whose leaves, when severed 
from the stem, will sprout 
young "plantlets" from the 
<notches of the leaves. Originally 
thought to be a response to 
changing levels of the hormone 
auxin, the budding, Dr. Houck 
now believes, is mainly due to 
another group of hormones 
called cytokinins. 

This theory is currently being 
tested, with most of the actual 
lab work (involving leaf 
homogenizing, extracting, resin 
filtering, flash-evaporation, 
and bioassay analysis) being 
done by Dr. Houck's assistant, 
Jorey Parkhurst, a junior 
biology major. 

Dr. Houck expects that the 
bulk of the research will be 
completed fairly soon. And 
that by the end of the summer 
the project will be Finished. 
Without the grant, which pur- 
chased the flash-evaporation 
apparatus and provided an 
assistant's stipend for Jorey, 
much of the work would have 
been impossible. 

"A plant is like a symphony 
orchestra, with all the 
physiological processes working 
like individual instruments to 
produce the harmony of life," 
states Dr. Houck. "What we 
are trying to do is understand 
one of these instruments a lit- 

tle better, and regardless of their assistants who have been 

what we have learned, we have involved with various research 

really only scratched the projects, for their creative 

surface." thinking, their contributions to 

Southern College commends science, and for showing us that 

Dr. Houck and the students one doesn't have to be "big" in 

who have worked with him, as order to accomplish "big 

well as other staff members and things."
