Advice Editor 

What's the easiest way to refold a letter or a map? 
Answer: Differently. It is ahnost impossible to get 
all those folds and creases to fold up the way they 
were folded last time. School kids who think north 
is at the top of the map, should see the one I folded 
up for my dad one day in third grade. It had a north 
arrow pointing left and right, and a paper boat m 
the middle. My dad was unimpressed by the fact that 
it was the Hrst boat to saU Indiana. 

What's the easiest way to redo a schoolyear/ 
Answer: ExacUy the same as the last one you've 
done. It's ahnost impossible to get all those folds and 
creases of habit to line up for good grades and a great 
year if they weren't there last time. North is straight 
ahead, but there are lots of arrows and paper boats 
to distract you. Most dads are not Impressed if your 
only letter of the year arrives during fmals week with 
101 reasons not to open your grade card. 

Let me give some advice, first, plan your crises m 
advance this year. If you take a writing course make 
sure the girlfriend/boyfriend you find can type, spell 
and punctuate. I recommend office administration 
majors, although EngUsh majors wiU do. Second, 
locate the Teaching Learning Center this week. It's 
■n the student center towards Thatcher. If you walk 
in with a dumb look and a textbook you can get free 
tutoring for almost any course. Finally, go to aU your 
classes. It's amazing what this can do for your GPA.

The Southvrn Accent is the otticjal student newspaper of 
Southern College and Is released each Thursday with the 
exception ot vacation and exam weeks. Opinions expressed 
in letters and by-lined articles are the opinion of the author

Dear Student Friends, 

WELCOME to a new school year! This 
beautiful campus has become even more at- 
tractive because you are here. 

I remember ^.ading a bit of poetry while 
I was in coUege that said something Uke this: 
Two men looked out from the selfsame bars 
One saw mud while the other saw stars. 

A lot of truth can be packed into a few short 
Unes of poetry. I think that is true of this set 
of lines. They express an important principle 
of life at Southern College and life in general. 
The point is -what do you choose to see and 
experience at Southern? Whatever you want 
is available to you. 

Do you want spiritual growth, Christian 
friends, positive intellectual stimulation, a solid 
education, quality lifestyle, excellent training 
for a future career? You'll find it here at SC. 
This sort of commitment will require that you 
"dig a little deeper," but the possibilities are 
here, and there are hundreds of other students 
who want the same things and whose friend- 
ship will strengthen you as you pursue those 
goals. The rewards which come from that kind 
of diligence are satisfying, long-lasting, and en- 
joyable. Do you want to go to college without 
exerting your spiritual and intellectual 
muscles, find friends who enjoy "partying", 
and get a taste of freedom? You can also find 
that sort of lifestyle and friends, but the 
pleasures and rewards are temporary. 

Choices and possibilities make up your life, 
and you can find what you're looking for at 
S.C. We are very much concerned with com- 
unicatmg values that are the foundation of 
Seventh-day Adventist Christian education 
and which set us apart from a public college. 

We are, however, aware that we are on|J 
point in your lifetime and that you| 
afready had many influences shape 
Because of this we try to make it possibj 
you to develop in the direction that we bJ 
God has pointed us. This means we wi 
force certain expectations and ask you t| 
hibit certain behaviors. 

In the long run, however, it's up to you,| 
can see the mud, or you can look at the sf 
You'll find what you're looking for at] 
This isn't a perfect college. You can't findj 
a place on earth! But we are commited to| 
ing it possible for you to develop yourH 
a way that will make it comfortable M 
to live in the perfect New Earth. [ 
This is a time when you are in charge « 
direction of your life. Your faculty and I 
are here to assist you in whatever way wel 
and we want to be here whenever youf 
us. But in reality, it is up to you. I 
I pray that God will give you wlsdoj 
make choices which wUl bring you happi 
and fulfillment of His purposes for yonr J 
He has promised to do just that. Psalm | 
declares that God will teach us how to J 
good choices and in Psahn 32:8 G^B) Hel 
"I will instruct you and guide you aionj 
best pathway for your life." 

Best wishes to you for a year of wise ( 
and abundant happiness as you pursue | 
dreams and goals. 

Sincerely yours,

Registration-for many students this word describes a 
f'ong process of signing forms, asking advice, and spen- 
Jsing most of the time waiting in line behind people who 
Irfame earlier to sign their forms, ask their questions, and 
Ivait their turn. Though this is an accurate picture of 
1 egistration in many colleges and universities, most of the 
lltudents signing up for the fall session found Southern 
IpoUege an exception. 

1' By the end of the second day of registration, 1,252 
tudents (representing 43 states and 30 countries) had 
] inrolled on the CoUegedale campus~30 fewer than last 
I rear. Estimates of the total enrollment including Orlan- 
I lo students, late arrivals, and others, put the number of 
litudents over 1,500. 

This year there were slight changes in the recruiting 
litrategy. The admissions office made more use of 
Telemarketing and reduced the number of field 
I epresentatives.

Director of Records, Maty Elam, reports that this year's 
registration has enrolled the greatest percentage of 
freshman that attended the fourth summer session. "I 
know I am pleased with the caliber of the students, and 
I think we can look forward to a great year," states Miss 
Elam. "I must say that we are grateful to all who helped 
out at registration-we couldn't have done it without 

According to current statistics, the school of nursing 
still boasts the greatest number of majors, but business 
and technology are close behind. Long-Term Health Care 
is the fastest growing business subdivision, largely due to 
an increase in the elderly population. 

At this time, there is no way to compare our registra- 
tion figures with those of other schools, but according 
to Dr. Wagner, who attended a recent meeting of Adven- 
tist College Presidents, most schools anticipated a drop 
in enroUment while a few hoped to remain at last year's . 
level. "I am tremendously pleased with both the enroll- 
ment figures and the smooth process of registration," 
states Dr. Wagner. "Many compliihents are due to Mary 
Elam and her staff for helping to construct and execute 
such an efficient procedure." 

Now that the forms have been signed, the questions 
answered, and the last person in line has had his turn, 
registration had ended. But the reason for spending thM 
time is just beginning-let's make the most of iti

with tHoos of breezy, sunny siDing days and encounters 
with psychedelic undersea creatures, the fifteen students 
in Dr. Dayid Steen's Marine Ecology class left classroom 
and books behind to tour the Bahama Islands from May 
19 to May 27. TTie group, joined by Dr. Steen's famUy, 
sailed in a 67 ft ketch named "Shark XH" with the inten- 
tion, in Steen's words, of "obsernng a variety of ecological

ship, the "Sapona", harbored an abundance of sea Bfe. The 
Bary Islands further west yieWed several delights mcludfaig

from BIOL 495. T.L. 

"Barracuda! Barracuda!" 

By Mitzi Acosta, Senior Biology major 
"I'll never forget the first barracuda we saw. We were 
doing it all wrong-lcicking and thrashing to get back to 
the boat. I dropped my knife and had to go back for it. 
But they [barracudas] are docile," recalls Scott Kemmerer. 
As the fifteen of us sweated through our Marine 
Biology book for two weeks, none of us thought our 
dreams of sun and sailing would be transformed into the 
reality of barracudas and the Shark Xn, our boat. The 
ad for the Shark Xll was, let's say, creative. 

"Launched in 1979, the Shark Xll was designed especial- 
ly for comfort." 
Sure that wasn't 1879?

'Private staterooms' were 5 ft. by 6 ft. and the plat-

Fresh-water shower-at two gallons of water per per-

"showers" consisted of diving into the ocean, returning 
on board to suds up, diving off to rinse, and then using 
Downey water to remove the saltiness from our skm One 
time we did get fresh-water showersrwhen it rained The 
clouds bustled in and dropped their blessed load of fresh 
water while some of us did rain dances and others serious- 
ly bathed. The ocean also became one large dish-wasliing 
machine. The sea was the answer to ALL our plumbing

[nmatched Summer Bash 

By Julio Narvaez 

Last Saturday night's Summer Bash has Uterally laun- 
ched this school year into a soaring flight. After roun- 
ding the tennis courts, one confronted a large crowd which 
according to Sheila Elwin, an S.A. official, almost doubl- 
ed from last year's welcome party figure. The shock did 
not diminished by getting closer. The scene suggested 
Malibu beach instead of Southern College after seeing 
hundreds dressed in Orange Hawaiian shirts, Ray Ban 
sunglasses and hot pink swim trunks. It gave the impres- 
sion of spring break at Fort Lauderdale, not only because 
of the vivacious attire, but also because of the enthusiasm 
of the multitude. For example, after someone threw a 
beachball in the air, the whole crowd joined in the game 
1 of keeping it there. Everyone cheered if it was hit really 
high, and booed if it touched the ground. Some fellows 
went as far as to climb on their friends' shoulders to bump 
it. All this happened while papers required to get 
I doughnut sundaes were signed. 

1 After the beachball was punctured and the S.A. award- 
I ed prizes, the students divided into groups to participate 
I in a game circuit. The individual groups played a game 
1 until the whistle was blown then everyone would rotate 
stations. The games were imaginative, they ranged from 
I playing volleyball on the tennis courts to playing basket- 





ball with shoes. While everyone played the games, many 
humorous things happened of which tijere's space to write 
only one. One of the games required a team of four girls 
to carry one guy for twenty yards. One group of four was 
carrying a Freshman through the slipery grass when sud- 
denly they fell. The result was disastrous enough, but even 
worse, the guy's trousers slipped down a little. Never- 
theless, with no greater engineering than fastening a belt, 
the team made it through the finish line. 

Even though the games were fun, what stood out the 
most was the exceptionally good attitude of everyone in- 
volved. People not previously acquainted were striking 
up conversations everywhere. 

Over the loudspeakers a message about Freshman Paul 
Scalzo was heard. It announced how well he was getting 
involved when in reality, he was sitting down watching. 
Needless to say, the message got him in motion. 

Dining the welcome party many opinions were express- 
ed. Freshman Dan Shields mentioned that S.C.'s girls are 
the nicest both m character and appearance. Randy Beers, 
a Junior, thought that hunting for signatures in order to 
get ice cream was a great way of meeting new friends. He 
especially enjoyed it when a young lady asked him to sign 
the space that read: Find someone you would like to go 
out with. Sophomore Maria Dominguez mentioned she 
was sure this year was going to be great-an attitude shared 
by most of the crowd. 

I Dear SC Students, 

The Student Association is the student government on 
I the campus of Southern College of Seventh-day Adven- 
I tists. The active body of that govermnent is the Student 
jjociation Senate. This organization gives the students 
nee to participate in the making and shapmg of the 
Bent govenunent's activities and policies, 
lowever, this organization is not just fun and games. 
Isrtain amount of time is sacrificed in order to be a 
[itor. In addition to the time spent in regularly schedul- 
heetings and specially called meetings, a senator must 
^isistently spend time communicating with his or her 
I constituents. This is done so that the purpose of the 
I senate, reflecting the feelings of the student body, is not 
I lost. 

f you are interested in becoming a senator and did not 
Qcate this on the questionnaire passed out at registra- 
pi, please contact the S.A. office in the student center. 
I may do this by either leaving your name, school ad-

Intro to Predictions 

By Jerry Russell. Sieve Martin, and Scott Begley 

During the '85-'86 school year, the sports staff will take 

a good look at the rosters of each team and try to place 

them in probable order of finish. 

We apologize to the ladies for leaving them out this 

T ^«1.« T7;^«CJ INJo Wltfpr time, but we'U get you next week. We will also take a look 

JaeCkS r'U^eS INO XllUer ^t the Tenmstoumamem to see how it may turnout. But 

for now, here are fast pitch and slow pitch predictions. 

Ste«S'^e the first pitcher in recent SC '' C" tarts out with a strong outfield including Myron 
history to h" la nSrOry's pi'cher struck out three Mixon and Mike Dickerhoff, who both have a passion 
^H w, ked 3 to a 2Tshutout vrin over Lonto. for the long ball. This team features many singles hitters 

Ln^managed filebte^^ers. None of whom made to set up Mbcon and Dickerhoff. Look for Duff to do 
it to second bL. Jaecks claimed the key to the victory weU in the all-night softbaU tournament, 
was a soUd performance by the infield, which featured 
two double plays by John Grys and Steve Vogel. 

George Pangman fired a three hitter for the losers. 
Jaecks, who says he knew nothing of the nohitter until 
the game was over, was asked about a possible repeat per- 
formance. "No way, it'll never happen again." 

In other fast pitch action Stone and Cain played nine 
innings deadlocked at two runs a piece. The Accent will 
have complete information regarding the game when it 
is completed in two weeks.

No Place Is Perfect 

By Pastor Gordon Bietz 

In my dreams I imagined I was in a school where the 
teachers were perfect. There lectures kept all the students 
at rapt attention. Time passed so quickly in class the 
students were surprised when the class was over, and 
usually pleaded for more time in class. Teachers always 
had time for the students, and made each student feel that 
they alone were the center of the teacher's attention. 

The dormitories at this school were also pictures of 
perfection. A speck of dust would not last for a moment 
before it would be cleaned up by the ever present clean- 
ing crew. Cockroaches died just looking at how clean 
everything was . It had been a number of years since a bug 
had been discovered near the dormitories. The colors in 
the dorm were scientifically chosen to give each student 
peace of mind, and the TVs in every room were always 
turned to educational chaimels. Deans always smiled and 
tucked each student into bed each night. 

Of course the Financial Aid Office always had money 
to give for whatever need presented itself, and so there 
were no students with outstanding accounts and each had 
*nough spending money. 

This perfect school with the perfect teachers, deans, and 
food also had perfect students who were all in bed by 10 
p.m. and never did anything out of line. 

The worships were so stimulating that the Deans had 
a difficult time getting students to attend intramural 
sports. In fact the P. E. Department was complaining to 
Campus Ministries that their meetings were pulling 
students away from intramural basketball. If singing 
bands are announced, there are never enough busses to 
take all those who want to go. No place on campus is large 
enough for all the students who want to have prayer 
bands, and so many people are attending Sabbath School 
that two services are required for Sabbath School as well 
as church. 

As 1 wandered around this perfect school, I felt inade- 
quate. I asked the person in charge who was showing me 
around what the nwne of this amazing school was and 
he said it was SC. ''SCI7I" I said, "that doesn't sound 
exactly like the SC I know!" "This SC," he replied, 
"stands for Sanctified College, and it is located in 

As I began to ask him how it was that t was there in 
heaven, I woke up and found myself back at SC on earth. 

Is there any relation between SC-heaven and SOeuth?

Reliable sources confirm that JT Shim of 
A-19 Talge Hall, known worldwide as JT, has 
started to sleep at night. Notes have been seen 
requesting no visitors or "fone" calls after

clear. JT claims that he will take his six and 
seventh years in coUege seriously. He further 
states that he will attemp to pass his CPA ex-

^Academic Calendar Of Stress' 

,^ You may not be aware that today is the middle of 
"^ ' Banned Books Week. For the last four years, Amenca's 
publishing, journalistic, and bookselling associauons 
have celebrated the freedom to read. They encourage 
the rest of the nation to join in by distributmg mforma- 
tion about who is banning what and why it should not 

The extent of censorship in Amenca might surpnze 
you and so might some of the titles struck down. The 
banned from three schools in the last decade due to "ob- 
jecuonable" language. Two textbooks used on campus 
have been challenged before. One is BIOLOGY by 
Helena Curtis, which was removed from San Diego, 
Calif , schools for its "dogmatic" treatment of evolu- 
tion. John LaPlace's book, HEALTH, was banned from 
classrooms in the Buffalo, N.Y. Diocese for being "too 

Giving sway to censors would slim down the literary 
choices here. THE CANTERBURY TALES was sub- 
ject to expurgation on arrival in America in the 19th cen- 
tury. Ben Franklin's A UTOBIOGRAPHY has faUen to 
a simUar • 'purification" process. Nathaniel Hawthorne 
faced great opposition to THE SCARLET LETTER, 
and the books of Ernest Hemingway have met with bans 
in four states. Jewish parents in Brooklyn, N.Y., went 
to court in 1949 with Dickens' OLIVER TWIST, claim- 
ing religious bias in public schools. Probably the best 
known book to face threats of censorship is the Mark 
Twain (Samuel Clemens) book, HUCKLEBERRY 
FINN, for alleged racism and bad grammar. Reading 
controversial works set for literature classes will have 
new connotations after Banned Books Week. 

The two goals of this designated week are freedom 
of choice and of expression, with special bearing on 
books. For a general application, a rallying call should 
not push the hberty pendulum past common sense to a 
careless extreme. Sometimes the negative results of over- 
done freedom do not show up for years. All people allow 
their own beliefs and interests to filter their perceptions. 
Whether you are learning or learned, take great care in 
your analysis and caution in your judgment.

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (CPS) - Students entering 
school this fall will encounter stresses they've never dealt 
with before, and wiU probably endure regular academic 
calendar of stress" periods before they finish college, 
a new University of Utah study reveals. 

"Students are away from home, many for the first 
time, and dealing with pressures and responsibilities 
they've never had before," explains study co-author 
Neal Whitman, a researcher with the university's Depart- 
ment of Family Planning. 

At the same time, though, students experience less 
serious stress because they have greater control over their 
lives than their non-student peers in the real world, ac- 
cording to the summary study of over 150 major stress 

"Stress is directly related to how much control you 
have over your life," says Whitman, "and let's face it, 
a coUege student has a lot of control. Going to college 
itself is a matter of choice. You control your use of time, 
decide what classes to take and how to study." 

Still, college has plenty of pressures and stresses, 
many of which affect students at certain times and places 
in their educations. 

Last spring a Michigan State study reported that 
students ~ like their counterparts with full time jobs - 
often become frustrated, apathetic, and burned-out. 

Law and medical students, with more intense 
schedules and greater focus on jobs, tend to feel more 
pressures than liberal arts majors, the Utah study says. 
A recent Louisiana State study showed that medical 
school often proves "hazardous to the health of many 
students" who are unable to handle the stresses and 
pressures that come with the degree. 

"The job market is the most significant trigger of 
stress for students," says Whitman, "particularly for 
exiting and professional students. And we have also 
found that there is an 'academic calendar of stress' that 
typically applies to students during college." 

Such stressful periods include "arrival and moving 
into dorms, midsemester and midterm blues, Thanksgiv-

1 maybe you are also unaware of the outstanding 

iements made by a professor in this department. 

1 Paris, on May 2, 1929, Dr. Ray Hefferlin receiv- 

I.A. from Pacific Union College in 1951 and a 

I from the California Institute of Technology in 

iis research took him to the Soviet Union in the

T scientific circles for scores of research and papers 

I written, but he inspired many of his students to 

Sjhor articles which were published in scientific jour- 

3r. HefferUn has become a favorite teacher in a 

brous discipline during his 30 years at our college. 

'in 1957 Russia began the space age with the launch 

f Sputnik I, the first man-made satellite. In the race 

hr technology that followed, research money flowed 

1 len to Southern Missionary College. With the proper 

wuipment available. Dr. HefferUn gained recognition 

Iki the scientific community for his research in spec- 

1 ometry (the physics of light composition). As grants 

Ic^ame more scarce, many scientists were forced to limit 

peir research. However, Dr. Hefferlin refocused his at- 

J ntion to an area that required theoretical genius rather 

Idan abundant funds. During his study leave last year, 

llf. Hefferlin, as a visiting professor in Denver, con- 

loiued developing a three-dimensional table that will 

Jsedict the various properties of diatomic and some 

Iciatomic molecules. This table is similar to the periodic 

1 lart familiar to those who have had even a brief en- 

leiunter with chemistry. During the past eight years Dr. 

Icefferlin has established himself as, according to Dr. 

laianson, "the world's authority in his area [the periodic 

stems of molecules]."

blucation, which annually honors teachers for extraor- 
(jihary effort, distinction, and dedicated service, selected

Dr. Hefferlin as one of 25 semi-finalists from 265 
nominees. On July 12 a grand jury convened by the 
Carnegie Foundation for Advancement of Teaching 
selected Dr. Hefferlin as one of ten finalists. A gold 
medal award recognizing his distinction as a teacher and 
scholar will be presented during an upcoming chapel. 
The significance of this achievement is reflected in a 
statement by Dr. Allen: "It is a tremendous honor for 
the school to be recognized for having faculty of this 

In spite of Dr. Hefferlin's great scientific 
achievements, he remains a humble and sincere Chris- 
tian. His modesty and kindness are as outstanding as 
his scientific accompUshments. "Dr. Hefferlin has pro- 
vided a model for our younger teachers and has done 
a great deal to improve the general quality of teaching 
on our campus," stated Dr. Wagner. "The role he plays 
as a scientist-teacher enriches us all."

Daily Enacts Uriah Smith 

By Shannon Bom 
Friday night, Sept. 6, the congregation of CoUegedale 
Church sat silently waiting for the speaker to make his 
entrance. Suddenly from the back of the sanctuary stan- 
zas of "The Blessed Hope" were heard coming from the 
startling form of Uriah Smith. Uriah Smith, alias Steve 
Daily, Chaplain on the La Sierra Campus of Loma Lin- 
da University, proceeded to tell us the history of our 
church as seen through Uriah Smith's eyes. As he told 
of conflicts, hardships, and unity similar to that of the 
first apostles, we were brought a little closer to the lives 
of James and Ellen White, Joseph Bates, and many other 
early workers. Even though there were many ups and 
downs, disagreements, and other attempts by Satan to 
stop the work, we saw the many evidences of God's 
leading through one who felt the emotional strain and 
joy of following new paths. Our thanks to Steve Daily 
for bringing us closer to our forefathers and to a heritage 
we can be proud of.

Jnce upon a time all of the teachers met in a great

"Id be severe. No further class attendance would be

We Would be no contact with anyone of the opposite

'niier would be immediately informed, and they 

would be required to remove the rule-breaker from the 
campus immediately. The student who ignored this rule 
could never return to school again. 

You may be wondering what rule could require such 
drastic action. The rule was this; "Everyone is required 
to breathe." Anyone caught not breathing would be sub- 
ject to all the above disciplinary actions. Actually, a 
hearse would remove any person on campus who was 
found not to be breathing. 

"What a silly rule!" some of you are saying. 
"Everyone wants to breathe and so you don't need any 
rules to enforce iti" True, it would be a sUly rule. Some 
of you may feel that rules that require church attendance 
or dormitory worships are silly. You may say, "We are 
mature; we can decide on our own to attend church or 
go to worships." Why do we have rules to enforce such 

If you are mature and choose to attend religious ser- 
vices by your own free will, the fact that a rule exists 
requiring you to go is no more troublesome than a rule 
that you must breathe-you are going to do it anyway. 

If you would choose not to attend religious services, 
the rule is necessary because, like breathing, attending 
such services is good for our life. The rule is only for 
the immature, who would choose a school for a religioiis 
education but for some reason would not choose the 
spiritual life. 

So the rules on chapels, worships, and church are only 
for the immature. Those of you choosing to breathe 
spiritual life don't need to worry about such rules; you 
will be at those services anyway. Those t)f you who 
would choose not to breathe such spiritual life should 
learn to-for your spiritual health. When you make that 
choice, those rules won't bother you either.

Lawn Concert 

By Whitney Piper 
Do Sabbath afternoon "ho-hums" get you down? 
After lunch do you hike to "Mattress Springs 7 For 
most students the answer is yes. This past Saturday an 
outdoor lawn concert was an alternative to the usual 
Sabbath afternoon "lay-activities." 

The concert, which took place on the open area bet- 
ween Hackman Hall and the library, began at 5:30 and 
ran till 7:30. BiU Dubois, Assistant Campus Chaplain, 
along with Bob Folkenberg, Campus Ministries Coor- 
dinator, and John Dysinger, CABL Coordinator, plann- 
ed this project. . 

After the concert BiU said that there would "defmitely 
be future lawn concerts." He talked of a tentative "top- 
notch" concert to be held in October in the gymnasium. 
When asked the idea behind the concert, BiU said it 
was to have "something enjoyable and different for 

students to do on Sabbath afternoons." Tl,at was the 
case. An estimated 300-350 people showed up for the 

'°T?n different groups perfonned. Vocal soloists includ- 
ed Tag Garmon, Vincent Flores, Jim Herman, Randy 
Minnick, Steve Grice, Tami SmaU, and BiU Young_ A 
piano piece was played by Obed Cmz. Joe Chaffm, Bob 
Jimenez, Tag Gannon, and Chris Lang made up a 
quartet that did two numbers. Two groups that had first 
appearances on Saturday were Prophetic Songs of Joy, 
from Atlanta, and Messenger, composed of students 
from Southern CoUege. Jennifer Reid, one of the lead 
singers from the group, said that after their musical 
numbers they were approached by several people who 
asked them to perform. One of the offers was m Atlan- 
ta, the other in New York. If you are interested in be- 
ing a part of the next concert, send a tape of your 
musical number to BUI DuBois, Assistant Campus

My Turn/By Kevin Cornwell 

The Freedom of Free 

Laura rarely made the decisions in her life. It wasn't 
that she couldn't make choices, she was just shielded. 
Her future was pretty well mapped out by her loving, 
but overprotective. Seventh-day Adventist parents. She 
couldn't "call a spade a spade"~she had never seen one. 
At age 19, Laura got married and became pregnant, only 
not in that order. When faced with a pressure situation 
she wasn't able to realize the ultimate consequences of 
her actions. How could she have known? Her parents' 
decisions were always good ones, so she never had to 
make choices and feel the burn of a poor one. 

Are we as SC students given the opportunity to face 
the consequences of our decisions? Do we retain the 
power of free choice? Many times I believe not. 

Before SC admits us, we must sign a statement to the 
effect that we will abide by the codes set up by well- 
meaning board members. Unfortunately, our law 
makers seldom are forced to follow the letter of their 
own law and therefore seldom feel the pressure those 
subject to the law do. In my opinion, we would have 
fewer restrictions and more understanding if those who 
make the rules were required to attend school for a week 
under the canopy of their own policy. 

Oh, you say, they have been here and know what it's 
like. Fine, except you missed the tense: past. We are still 
in school with many of the daily problems that have 
always faced young people, but society has changed, 
f While it doesn't mean that we should become more le- 
[.nient, it does mean that we should step out of the past. 
1 When we put iron fences around ourselves with little 
hance to bend them according to the situation, the 
..winces no longer protect as we intend them to, but stunt 
J the natural growth of a personality. Guidelines must be 
. t up , and as the conscience of the individual heightens , 
. the guideUnes become nonexistent. The person takes 
^, |hem and modifies them to fit his Hfestyle. You may 
I i^gue that rules are necessary to protect people. Granted 
" '^at is true, but do all people need or want protection? 
6 can be taken a bit over the edge. 
1 While visiting Leningrad, I met a professor from 
goscow University who was quite delighted to share her 
he state's) idealogy with me. The citizens, she said, have 
Jpre efficient use of free choice in a communist environ- 
Jent than in a capitalistic one because all bad choices 
3ste either censored out (pornography, religion. Western 
avilization, capitalism) or eliminated (criminals, free 
linkers, non-conformists). Of course, it would be dif- 
""ult for us to reach Russia's level of control. In 
Sfoscow because of space limitations you're told not on- 
ly when you may have children but how many you are 
allowed. The situation takes on new significance when 
it appears on our campus. The church, made up of its 
members, is made for sinners. It is, I Relieve, a refuge 

for the discouraged to get back on their feet and stay 
there. Last year a student was, in his estimation, harass- 
ed by faculty members for poor choices he made. Now, 
I doubt he was actually harassed, but I'm sure the ap- 
proach and frequency of contact was not ideal. Rather 
than encourage the student to reach higher standards, 
the pressure exerted upon the student to unmediately 
reHect properly the church's ideas caused him to decide 
not to come back. 

Free choice is a gift of God. As we develop backbone 
and the ability to foresee the results of any choice, less 
restriction must be granted. 

Adam ate the apple knowing full well what the con- 
sequences would be. Not the grisly details, of course, 
just as we don't know future details, which does make 
the present awfully tempting. 

Unless we as individuals are allowed to make faulty 
choices and live with the sometimes devastating results, 
unless we are given gradually more latitude as we feel 
our way in life, we will be wholly unprepared to face 
cahnly and resolve properly pressure situations that de- 
mand a choice. 

Laura, shielded from consequences, learned only to 
live for the moment. The SC student, forced to leave 
because of poor attitudes and improper reaction on the 
part of the faculty, learned that "Christian College" is 
a harsh environment where poor judgment and mistakes 
are not only signs of imperfection but intolerable for the 
reputation of the institution. His hope for a better Ufe 
is dampened because he was not accepted as he was or 
encouraged at that level. Citizens of the Soviet Union 
are convinced their reduction of free choice is closer to 
the perfect society. 

Think of it this way: God's plan for human existence 
is perfect. Does he predetermine what choices we choose 
from? Obviously not. We are given the choice to sin, 
but we are also told what we will earn if we choose a 
consistently sinful Ufe. Would it not be a closer mirror 
of Christianity (Christ-likeness) if the people who have 
taken the responsibility of shaping young futures would 
deal with the individual as such, rather than putting 
labels on them and blindly dictating courses of 

God let Adam choose for himself. Adam was thrown 
out of his home, but not before provision and understan- 
ding for the future was made. We have on our campus 
many restrictions. Some apply to all, some to a very few, 
and a few to none. With communication, presented in 
a well-thought-out format, the faculty or any sensible 
human will see that we, as individuals or as a group, 
are prepared to face and can clearly see the results of 
our decisions. It then becomes the responsibility of those 
in authority to aUow the freedom of free choice.

The mountain music and tales of the David Holt Show 
will launch the 1985-86 Artist-Adventure Series at 
Southern College of Seventh-day Adventists on Sept. 14 
at 8:30 p.m. 

Holt's wide range of music and stories learned directly

tion Center on the CoUegedale campus. The banjo, ham- 
mered dulcimer, autoharp, squeeze box, guitar, har- 
monica, bones, spootis, and jew's-harp are instruments 
used by Holt to share the lore of Southern Mountain 

As a folk musician and collector of traditional music, 
David Holt has been featured on the Grand Ole Opry 
and on PBS television programs. Tours for the U.S. 
State Department have taken him to Nepal, India, 
Thailand, Burma, and Bolivia. 

"Support from our friends in the area, as well as from 
our students, has encouraged us to continue offering 
high quality family entertainment," stated Everett 
Schlisner, vice president for student services. Fourteen 
programs are in this year's Artist-Adventure Series at 
Southern College. 

Season tickets will be sold at the door and offer 
substantial savings over individual program tickets. 
Season tickets include reserved seats at the front of the 
Physical Education Center. Information is available by 
calling 238-2548 during office hours. Tickets for the 
David Holt Show wiU also be sold at the door. Admis- 
sion is $3 for adults, $7.50 for famiUes, and $2 for senior 
citizens or chUdren under 12. SCStudents are admitted 
free with ID.

McKnight defeated Stone 8-4 to remain undefeated 
at 5-0. The game lacked the offensive firepower that was 
expected. McKnight held Stone scoreless for four inn- 
mgs. In the fifth. Stone hit the furst of his two homers. 
Jack Drab also hit weU for Stone, but failed to get sup- 
port. McKnight reUed on a timely triple by Wells, foUow- 
ed by a stable team to fnistrate Stone, who's record is 
now 3-2.

In a closely fought defensive game, McKnight edged 
Denton 7-6. Scott Begley kept the game aUve for Den- 
ton with a solo shot in the seventh, tying the game at 
6. A leadof f homerun by William McKnight in the bot- 
tom of the ninth was the winning run.

Fast Pitch Predictions 

By Jerry Russell 
1 . Stone 

Craig Stone and Barry Manzella have a strong team 
headed by Ted Evans. Evans easUy has the best bat in 
the league and along with Stone will form the best one- 
two punch. These two will be responsible for about 80 
percent of the scoring and will have no trouble knock- 
ing in Kent Boyle and CharUe Schnell who vrill Ukely 
bat in front of them. 

2. Crone 

Jim Crone's team boasts what is probably the best of- 
fense in the league. Everett Schlisner, who will be pit- 
ching, leads this potent offense which also features third 
baseman Jim Crone, who can hit for power, and first 
baseman Nellie Thoreson, who is a good bet to win the 
batting championship. Bill DuBois, Kyle Selby, and Vito 
Monteperto are single hitters who will set up Schlisner, 
Crone, and Thoresesn. These guys could easily take the 
top spot. 

Brenl Van Arsdell/Soulhern Accent 

Kent Boyle at Bat 

3. Grys 

John Grys' team has the best defense in the league. 
A strong infield features Steve Vogel at second, Grys 
at third, Jerry Russell at short, and Terry Wolfe behind 
the plate. Randy Beers heads up a mediocre outfield 
which also includes Jim Miskiewicz. 

The offense is strong with Steve Jaecks in the cleanup 
spot and hordes of single hitters to set him up. 

4 Lonto 

Rob Lonto's team has the best pitcher in the league 
with George Pangman, but that's it. With Ron Barrow 
out with a broken leg, all hopes of a decent offense are 
lost. Mike Dickerhoff is arguably the league's best short- 
stop and Steve Flynn is a good outfielder.-Don't look 
for this team to be"in the hunt."

A recent injury to captain Higgins could hurt. Let's sM 
if the rest of the team can rally around her to man iil| 
the loss, 

2. Beardsley . 
Sheri Beardsley's team could very easily take the tol 

spot. Loretta Messer is a good hitter and a fine fielwl 
Beardsley is a motivator and a good captain. 

3. Denton 
This team will win a few games on spirit alone. Gooj 

solid hitting along with a great defense makes this te 
a contender. Cheerleader and co-captain Stephai"! 
Pollet will definitely be a factor.

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/September 19,1985 


Who Ya Gonna Call? 

I haven't asked anyone this year; it's not because I 
haven't wanted to, though. I've wanted to aslc several 
girls who are pretty and nice, and nice and pretty, but 
I've been almost married to this newspaper. It takes a 
lot more courage and time than most girls realize to plan 
a date. 

1 called a girl up last week; she's kinda pretty and 
seems to be happy most of the time-well, you know. 

"Hello, is Susie there?" 

"Well, no, she's not; could I take a message?" 

"Well, when is she expected back in?" 

"She'll probably be in about 1 1 p.m. when her fiance 
drops her off." 


"Thank you, I'll call back later." Humph-not 
enough research. 

I'm not worried about the giri saying, "I have other 
plans." I really don't even mind if a girl says, "I don't 
like you, and I don't want to go out with you," but I 
can't stand it when I call up a girl two weeks in advance, 
she checks her calendar and then says, "I'm very sorry 
I can't go out with you-cause I'll be doing my laundry 
that night." 

One hundred percent of SC males in a recent survey 
(the six guys I foimd in the student center Sunday night) 
said they would like to be asked out reverse weekend. 
Some said they would like to go off campus; others said 
it didn't matter. A few even said it would be nice to be 
asked even if they were dating someone at the time. I 
guess it does something for the male ego. Some guys 
can't take being asked out. These are usually the Ram- 
bo II, Sylvester Stallone, Stan Hickman types. If they 
don't initiate it, they don't want any part of it. Don't 
call them; they'll call you.

Dear Editor: 

To paraphrase an old friend of mme, A journey of 
$1,000 begins with one cent." 

I would like to express my appreciation for the com- 
mitted administrative leadership we have at Southern 
CoUege and commend them for their efforts at minuniz- 
ing costs of maintaining our school. 

The decision to instaU a system which regulates the 
power usage of air conditioners on campus was a step 
in the right direction; we need more of them. 

Another step would be to ask the students directly to 
conserve energy. In the five years that I have attended 
SC, I don't recall having heard the administration 
seriously solicit the cooperaUon of the students to con- 
serve. Does the administration expect that the idea evolve 
in each student's mind? The administration should pro- 
vide leadership in this area. A group effort with audi- 
ble support from tiie top is much easier to maintain than 
a solitary action. 

But we need to be even more aggressive. 

Pacific Union College has successfully installed solar 
water heaters in two of its dormitories, which has saved 
over $300,000 in the last two years. PUC has replaced 
or is in the process of replacing incandescent lights with 
fluorescent ones. Why hasn't SC? Can we afford to be 
that drastic? Can we afford not to be? 

Among other things, I have frequently seen Jacob's 
ladder's lights on during daylight hours. Could 
photoelectric cells replace the timer system? 

With a projected $500,000 deficit, the first reaction 
is that the balance-the-budget cuts will have to hurt. Why 
not start the cutting where it won't hurt? 


Dear Editor: 

I enjoyed Mitzi's "Loan-ly Tale" very much. I was 
one of the first student missionaries to take advantage 
of the NDSL deductions by serving for three years as 
a teacher in the Marshall Islands. It was a blessing to 
watch 50 percent of my loan vanish into thin air while 
I was out there. 

A word of caution-this October, President Reagan 
is expected to pass legislation making the government 
of the Marshall Islands an independent nation. This 
would probably put an end to the deduction, as those 
beautiful Pacific Isles would no longer be U.S. Territory. 

But that's all right. The Marshall Islands and other 
places in the Pacific are still fantastic places to have a 
wonderful experience as a student missionary and en- 
joy sunshine and scuba diving. But more importantly, 
they are wonderful places to serve the Lord as His work 
is winding down to a close.

Dear Editor: 

I just got out of traffic court and I am rather irked. 
I just waited, and waited, in line for a simple (and silly) 
offense. I was parked in an empty faculty parking lot 


at 8:10 p.m., August 14. All of my village student spoj 
were taken; besides, how many faculty members are g( 
na want to park in that very same spot at night duri 
the summer? 

Okay, big deal I got a ticket. I care not. I know i', 
innocent, but why give an innocent person a tick 
anyway? As a matter of fact, 1 was surprised to findi 
line full of innocent people (who were later proven 
nocent by the court). 

Perhaps instead of having security fussing at 
students and wasting our time (and their own), whyj 
just inform their "ticket givers" of the valid violatio 
and save everyone the hassle? 

I also suggest the court appoint someone to vvi 
through the line to let the students who have not do 
wrong go free instead of waiting in line. 


Dear Editor: 

I disagreed with "The Freedom of Free Choice" 
MY TURN, by Kevin Cornwell (Sept. 12). 

This school (any school) must have its own set of n 
-its own set of principles. As a Seventh-day Advenli| 
institution it has a reputation and standard to uphot 

With so many students living here there must be a 
tain rules so that all can be reasonably comfortabl 
Without stop lights or speed limits, driving woyf 
sometimes be very uncomfortable for those on the roi 
The rules don't take away freedom of choice, theyd 
just stop and speed limit signs that keep us headed ij 
right direction. 

At this school we have many chances to decide Ij 
ourselves (as in whether or not to obey the rules). 1 h 
found myself making many decisions since 1 came hi 
to Southern College, and I have also had to face then 
sequences of those decisions. 

Laura, from the article, now has to face the coBJ 
quences of her decisions. I feel that she knew thosea 
sequences even before she decided; but even if she did^ 
she still made use of her freedom of choice. 

The gentieman in the article also made his own cholf 
Maybe he didn't know exactly what the consequent 
were, but then again, not all decisions in life comew 
known results. You just have to make the decisions aj 
then face them-whatever they may be~"like a mni 

Taking away the rules is not the answer. So loD|| 
this world has sin, you will always have rules. The a 
is in changing the people under and over those r 
Make all the people perfect or morons and you woi 
need rules. As long as we have that precious Free()| 
of Choice there will always be rules. 

Janelle Maxson 

Dear Editor: 

We do have the freedom to choose. When you chj 
what is right the rules won't bother you. Choose oBJ 
wise and accept the consequences. It appears f 
freedom of choice is not really the issue here, but ra" 
the consequences of those choices aUeady m^'''-^ 

No one can take away your freedom to choose. 
may not give you many options to choose from, bi)ll| 
will still choose. 

If one feels he must criticize the "shapers of our yi»] 
people," he must do so constructively.

Rhonda Facundus, a baccalaureate nursing student at 
Southern College of Seventh-day Adventists, has receiv- 
[■( ed one of two Dorothy Hocker Awards given this year 
I : in Tennessee. 

[ The award recognizes outstanding nursing students for 
Jtheir leadership, academic excellence, and service to the 
Iconununity. Dorothy Hocker, for whom the award is 
Inamed, was a Tennessee educator and State Board ex- 
fecutive director. 

Miss Facundus was recommended for the award by 
the nursing faculty at Southern College. The presenta- 
tion was made by Marie Krall, chairman of the award 
and academic assistance committee for nursing at 
Southern College. A plaque inscribed with the honoree's 
name and the name of the college will hang in Mazie 
Herin Hall on the Collegedale campus for one year. Miss 
Facundus also received a small monetary gift. 

Extracurricular activities for Miss Facundus include 
presiding over the Nursing Club on campus. "Under her 
dynamic leadership, the club is providing social activities 
for residents of Summit House, a halfway house in Sum- 
mit," stated Catherine Knarr, chairman of the nursing 
division at Southern College. 

"The students have a birthday club for those living 
at Summit House, and share their Thursday evenings 
in social interaction. They have also led out in cleaning 
and painting the day room. Enlisting the help of other 
students and dubs, they helped provide new furniture, 
fans, and curtains. We're proud of Rhonda for her em- 
pathy, positive influence, and unselfish spirit," added 
Mrs. Knarr. 

International Club 

Makes Plans 


Fun, fellowship, and cultural enrichment is what the 
International Club is about. The International Club was 
organized at the beginning of the 1984-85 school year 
with Dr. Ben Bandiola as sponsor and Heidi Ford as 
the first president. Its purpose then and now is to pro- 
mote international fellowship, with the main emphasis 
on social, cultural, and especially spiritual enrichment. 

The International Club believes that we can give and 
receive a taste of our own country, state, or city by par- 
ticipating in the club and its activities. In the past, several 
students have made the mistake of associating the In- 
ternational Club with foreign students only. But the club 
was organized for every student, culture, and race on 

The club has many special events planned for the year, 
one of which has already taken place. On Saturday, 
September 14, 1985, the club had its first outing at 
Cloudland Canyon. We were able to enjoy a close rela- 
tionship, not only with friends, but also with God and 

But the main event for the school year is the Interna- 
tional Extravaganza. On this special occasion we are 
definitely enriched culturally. Students and faculty have 
the opportunity^to put on skits, instrumental and vocal 
music, and folk dances from their native countries. Ac- 
companying the excellent entertainment are the authen- 
tic, international dishes. Surely this is an event not to 
be missed. 

In the past year the International Sabbath School has 
been associated with the Inteniational Club. But they 
are different entities. The Sabbath school was designed 
for those students and clubs who wanted a Sabbath 
school outside of the church, like Student Missions, Bet- 
to Kappa Tau, and International Club. The International 
Sabbath School is also a time for sharing and learning 
from different cultures. 

In order to make your school year well balanced both 
spiritually and culturally, participate in something 


Hello, Lord-Talk to Me! 

A One Act Play 

By Gordon Bietz 


After Bible class as Dennis and Greg walk across 
campus to their next class, they fall into the following 

Dennis: I sure don't understand why God doesn't com- 
municate with people like he did with Moses. Why won't 
He communicate with me today? 

Greg: What do you mean? 

Dennis: Well, back then they had all these ways of com- 
municating with God. They had the Urim and Thiunin, 
the presence of God in the Sanctuary, and the High 
Priests. They had no excuse for not knowing what God 
wanted them to do; they had no reason to question His 
will for them! 

Greg; Even with all that information they didn't follow 
Him too closely, did they? 

Dennis: I wish I could have words from God to know 
what to do with my life! 

Greg: Don't you? 

Dennis: Well, I'm not too positive about the profession 
I have chosen, and I wonder sometimes if my girlfriend 
is the one I should marry. I just am not real sure about 
my life. Now if I had a Urim and Thumin, I could just 
ask and I would know. If God would tell me, I wouldn't 
hesitate to do what He wanted.. .if I only knew exactly 
what that was. 

Greg: You could put out a fleece. 

Dennis: Huh?! 

Greg: Like Gideon did-you could make up some kind 
of sign. 

Dennis: Like what? 

Greg: Oh, I don't know.. ..You are rather mterested in 
two girls right now, aren't you? 

Greg: You could say to the Lord, "Make the first one 
I see in the mommg be the one that I should marry." 

Dennis: But that would be limiting my options to one 
of those two. 

Greg: Well, then, open it up a bit and say, "The fust 
giri that talks to me in the cafeteria is the one that I am 
supposed to marry." 

Dennis: You think that would work? 

Greg: Well, it is a bit risky.. .but.... 

Dennis: Hey, I am late for work-see you later. 


Dennis is seated by himself in the far comer of 
the cafeteria, and Greg is with three girls, Erin, Lisa, 
and Kim. at a table on the other side of the room. 

Greg: I have an neat idea; would you girls help me? 
Girls: Sure. 

Greg: All of you go over to Dennis. He is a little down 
today and doesn't think anyone likes him. Go over to 
him and all at the same time say, "HeUo, Dennis." 

Girls: OK, we can do that. 


Greg is walking across campus and Dennis cat- 
ches up to him. They begin to talk. 

Dennis: You won't believe this! 

Greg: What is that? 

Dennis: What does the Bible say about polygamy? 

Greg: What do you mean? 

Dennis: Well... I made this deal with the Lord. And you 
won't believe this.. ..I said that the first girl who came 
up to speak to me in the Cafeteria would be the one I 
was supposed to marry. I sat over in the comer so so- 
meone would have to go out of her way to see me, and. . . . 

Greg: Don't tell me-Erin, Lisa, and Kim come up to 
you at the same time and all tell you hello. 

Dennis: How did you know? Did you set me up? 

Greg: You might say that. 

Dennis: Why!?! You turkey! I am seriously trying to get 
some answers to questions about my future, and you are 
messing up my life. 

Greg: Listen, do you really want to know Cod's will in 
your life? 

Greg: When was the last time you had personal 

Dennis: Well.. .with all the worships I have to attend, 
I don't really think they are needed that much. 

Greg: Were you at church Sabbath? 

Dennis: I was really tired-I slept in. 

Greg: Have you seen a guidance counselor about your 
career choice? 

Dennis: No! What do they know? 

Greg: Have you counseled with your parents about your 

Dennis: I don't like their counsel. Hey, why all these 

Greg: You KNOW God's will about a lot of things, and 
you ignore it. You aren't doing half of what you know 
akeady. Why do you expect God to speak to you on 
some of the big issues you are facing? You wondered 
why God spoke to Moses? It is probably, because Moses 
listened to Him all the time.. .not just to solve the big 

Dennis: Wait just a minute.... 

Greg: You know God's will about a whole lot of things 
that you aren't doing, so how can you expect "a word 
from the Lord" on other issues? 

Dennis: OK! OKI enough already. But stiU, setting me 
up in the cafe was a dirty trick. 

Greg: True, but the expression on your face was worth 
it all.

sionaries, taskforce workers, and Uterature evangelists 
return with inspiring experiences of mingling with the 
world, 1 get that same tugging feeling in my heart that 
God is calling me and others to witness, to SHAREI 
There are just not enough people willing to sacrifice time 
to do the most important task that Christ wants us to 
do. The following words ring in all of our minds at some 
time or another: "Go into all the worid and preach the 
Gospel to all creation" (Mark 16:15). Do you Usten? 

The CoUegiate Missions Club on our campus is design- 
ed to prepare you to share with others. It's not just a 
club for helping returned student missionaries adjust to 
the shock of being back in America, and it's not just 
a club to recruit everyone to go as a missionary. Last 
Friday night the CMC had vespers around a campfire 
at Dr. and Mrs. Gulley's house. It was a time of shar- 
ing and singing-one of those vespers services that will 
stand out in my mind for a long time. The sky was full 
of stars and the singing filled up hearts, and this is what 
being a missionary is all about. 

You may remember a popular contemporary Chris- 
tian singer, Keith Green, who was tragically killed in an 
airplane accident. Before his death, he did many 
crusades to reach people and tell them of the importance 
of being a missionary. He stated that "a Christian mis- 
sionary is a person whose passion i^ to make the Lord 
Jesus known to the worid." It takes a lot of people to 
make Jesus known to the world. We should not just 
leave the work for others to do. 

Kevin Costello recently returned from the Marshall 
Islands where he had served as a student missionary for 
two years. Throughout his mission experience, he said, 
he gained many friends and a closer relationship with 
God. Kevin is back on campus and he has not let that 
stop his missionary spirit. He still is sharing, along with 
many others on this campus who have opened their 
hearts to Cod's ideas. 

In an article he wrote, Keith Green named four points 
for Christians to live by if they want to be missionaries 
(at home or overseas): 

1. Be available - Tell God that you will be willing 
to do whatever he wants you to do. 

2. Be informed - Gather all the information you can 
about missions, so you can pray and seek the Lord 

3. Be inspired - Read inspiring biographies of mis- 
sionaries; talk to other missionaries. [Join the CM 

4. Expect an open door - Expect God to make an 
opportunity. Then when he opens the door-walk 
through iti 

The Collegiate Missions Club opens its arms to 
everyone. The world needs Christians who will gladly 
share Christ with others. Prepare to share.

The mountain music and storyteUing of folk musician 
David Holt kicked off the Artist-Adventure Series at 
Southern CoUege of Seventh-day AdvenUsts, Saturday, 
September 14. 

"They were great. Real responsive. They can hear 
something very old-fashioned Uke this and say, 'It's OK. 
I like that', I'U go with that,'" said Hoh of the audience 
in a post-performance interview. The performer had held 
the crowd captive for 90 minutes. 

Holt said, "What 1 like to do is write new songs in 
an old style. I call this old wave music." He got his start 
in music as a child with a set of bones and spoons. Lear- 
ning to play the harmonica led to an interest in old-time 
music. He added to his collection, and now plays more 
than a dozen instruments. 

Holt was born in Fairview, North Carolina, in Oc- 
tober 1946. He has recorded two LP's, hosted a rural 
culture series on public television called Folkways, and 
is currently seen on the Nashville Network's Fire on the 
Mountain. He is married and has two children. 


The Chestnut Brass Company, a vibrant quintet from I 
Philadelphia, Pa., will perform a multi-faceted concert I

informal street band and progressed to become a well. \ 
known chamber ensemble. Their program here 
scheduled to include music such as "West Side Story I 
Suite," a group of preludes by Dimitri Kabalevsky, i 
march by Sergei Prokofiev, selections of 1850's banl| 
music, and some of Cole Porter's tunes. 

Priding themselves in their ability to perform in a widJ 
variety of situations and places, the five are at home io I 
recital halls, city parks, festival grounds, and other unei-f 
pected places. Members Bruce Barrie, Terry Everson,!

Nostalgia: You Want 
to Go Home? 

I A few weeks have gone by since you first began your 
Itshman year in college, and yet you have not quite 
llapted to your new environment. It's lunchtime and 
Im sit at the cafeteria table, staring at your tray, com- 
letely confounded. What have they done to is that? You close your eyes for a mo- 
I ent and hope that the queasies will go away. Then you 
I ink of how nice it would be if you could, maybe, go 
I ime for supper? 

I Well, you are not entirely alone in that thought, for 
I pilar is the experience of a couple hundred freshman 
I udents who, along with you, leave the security and 
I iniliarity of their home and friends to embark upon 
I new phase of their lives. 

I But it's not the same for them, you say. You had 
Ions, big plans, that would make your life away from 
I (me equally interesting and bearable. From home you 
lid brought your favorite trinkets: your record collec- 
Im, posters of the celebrities in your Ufe, your teddy 
lar, and so on. You were even planning to take ad- 
lintage of the absence of parental supervision-maybe 
leak into a few parties, you know, get into the swing 
Ithings. But your hopes are now crumbling. Situations 
live arisen that you had not given much thought to. For 
Istance, there are homework assignments to complete, 
lbs to attend, term paper deadlines to meet, etc., etc. 
Ijen there's laundry to attend to ("Where's Mom?"), 
li occasional garment to mend, and, to top it off, your 


everything that contrasts with your past lifestyle, impa- 
tiently anticipating the upcoming spring when you will 
be able to "get away from it all." 

Have you ever heard the adage that goes something 
like, "He who feels it, knows it"? Well, perhaps now 
you can understand how I have so vividly expressed your 
sentiments. And truly, your dilemma is no trivial mat- 
ter. But then I am quite sure that you've also heard of 
the adage that says, "Life is not a bed of roses." And 
neither is college! In fact, the institution makes for a 
very good model of the real world out there (complete 
with taskmasters for instructors and all), well designed 
to effectively teach practical methods of adaptation- 
and, not infrequently, "flunkation"-and other devices 
of dealing with those "beds of thorns" [which, I should 
remind you, also include the (in)edibles in the cafe] . You 
decided-unconsciously or otherwise-that you wanted 
to master these methods, i ou wanted to become one of 
the "fittest of the survivors"; in other words, you 
wanted to go to college. 

Now that you are here, what do you intend to do? 
You will~and only if you ever hope to become a senior 
like I am~"keep your nose to the grindstone" or your 
"shoulder to the plow," whichever is easier. In either 
case, you'll love the eventual rewards. 

Oh, by the way, you do realize that you must know 
at least 67 adages before you can graduate? 



The Week of Spiritual Emphasis at Southern College 
of Seventh-day Adventists September 16-20 features as 
guest speaker Pastor Walter Pearson, Jr. 

Pearson, senior pastor of the Berean SDA Church in 
Atlanta, Ga., is using the.theme, "He Touched Me," 
for the seven-meeting series, including subjects such as 
"The Touch That Calms" and "The Touch That 

After receiving his bachelor's degree in religion and 
theology from Oakwood College in Alabama, Pearson 
went on to study at Union Theological Seminary and 
the University of Kentucky. He pastored sU churches 
throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania before taking his 
current position in Atlanta. 

As the recipient of more than 30 awards from various 
religious, educational, and civic organizations, Pearson 
has also been a guest speaker on the TV show AT 
HOME, as well as host, speaker, and executive producer 
of the two-year TV series DAYBREAK, aired in 
' Philadelphia. 

The remaining meetings are scheduled for Thursday, 
Sept. 19, at 7 p.m.; and Friday, Sept. 20, at 8 p.m. They 
will be held in the CoUegedale Seventh-day Adventist 
Church. The pubUc is invited to share in this series.

What lucky student group will journey to Bangkok, 
Hong Kong, and further this stmuner? 

The Southern College Symphony Orchestra, a 
80-member string, wind, and percussion group, has been 
invited by the Far Eastern Division of SDA's to make 
a return tour to the Far East the summer of 1986. 

Spending a total of three weeks (May 5-27) in travel, 
they plan to visit and perform in Hong Kong; three stops 
in the Philipines, including Manila, Bacolod on Negros, 
and Sebu; Penang, Malaysia; Djakarta, Indonesia; 
Singapore; Bangkok, Thailand; and probably into 
mainland China. A trip of this magnitude will bring the 
orchestra into contact with over 200 dialects in the 
Philipines alone, as well as many related cultures. 

According to Professor Orlo Gilbert, conductor, the 
orchestra hopes to meet these foreign cultures and share 
some of its own in the music performed. This will in- 
clude classics, folk tunes from Southern Asia, anthems, 
American showtunes, and even bluegrass. Three soloists 
from the school will perform: Dr. Bruce Ashton, piano; 
Kevin Comwell, bassoon; and Lloyd Harder, trombone. 
To raise the $150,000 necessary for the trip, the sym- 
phony has launched a major fund raising drive. Seventy- 
seven thousand dollars has already been pledged, which 
leaves the remaining half to creative fund raising. 
Various conmiittees are plaiming benefit films, car 
washes, sales, letterwriting, etc., to obtain money. In 
cooperation with local radio stations (to be aimounced 
later), the orchestra and several small ensembles within 
it will conduct a play-a-thon. Revenue will also build 
from church offerings and a donation diimer concert. 
Fund raising is not new to this group. In the last six 
years, the orchestra has won world-wide acclaim in their 
travels to the Far East, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, 

Hawaii, Romania, and the U.S.S.R. 

The SC Symphony Orchestra has been recognized at 
home also. Under the direction of Gilbert, they were ask- 
ed to comprise the nucleus of a world-wide orchestra at 
the General Conference in New Orleans. Approximate- 
ly 50 players from around the world added to this core 
to swell the ranks to over 100 instrumentalists. 

With such an active group, it is no wonder that! 
Southern College has the distinction of being the only 
Adventist college boasting a full-fledged symphony or- 
chestra with a non-professional student membership. 
Though the group has nearly 80 members, less than five 
are music majors. Despite this fact, a significant percen- 
tage of the players came to Southern College because 
of the orchestra. This year's 25 new members hail from 
across the continent: Winnipeg, Canada, to Monteray 
Bay, California; South Lancaster, Massachussetts, to' 
Orlando, Florida. 

If you have never heard the orchestra, you've missed 
hearing a group that helps represent the coUege national- 
ly and interaationaUy. Catch an upcoming concert. Get 
to know the or chestra ; get to know part of your school

in North America-and perhaps the world-to receive a 
fully endowed chair. "It gives an unage of quaUty to

MAN OF THE WEEK: Paul D. Ware 



RojUd Amundsen trekked for two monfts m 1911 
before he and four companions reached the South Pole. 
He and his men hadno opportunity for hot showers ou 
there in the ice-thick wUdemess. No doubt they <i.d not 
expect any. These last two months 1 have hved m 
temperate CoUegedale, every time I start the shower or 
tugVn the tap in B14, a vision of Antarctic .ce fields 
screens through my mind. 

Using my shower wiU be a gamble this wmter. I hke 
a cold shower sometimes, usuaUy after a hot one. Forc- 
ed cold water treatment I do not crave. WiU the hot 
water arrive after ten minutes, which is the imnunum 
wait or after an hour? Will it stay luke warm or freeze 
up again? Perhaps it will stay cold forever. When I have 
no time to play this game. I jog a quarter of a mile or 
so to the "gang" showers, as they are aptly titled, to 
find warmth. No sooner am 1 under a comfortable spray, 
than I hear a rush of waters out in the "white beyond' 
and then a darting jet of flaming-hot water hits right 
on the head or the back. I am thankful it has never 
caught my face. Past years have been worse, in my ex- 
perience, but the instant scalding continues, havmg not 
stopped of its own accord. 

Everyone else on campus from the president down can 
choose not to have a frosty cold shower or a burning 
hot one. 1 blame myself for not speaking up before. 
Happily, the dean has ruffled a few manes with a two- 
page letter. If the changes are left undone much longer, 
the plumbers will be grumpy from having to work in the 

When 1 speak for Talge new wing this way there is 
a temptation to rave about injustice or to demand ser- 
vice for money paid. I do not think that is necessary. 
Conditions in the new wing do not resemble Siberia. But

Dear Editor: . 

It has come to my attention on several occasions that 
people have encountered considerable difficulty and, m- 
deed, even frustration while waiting in one of the dorm 
lobbies for a chance to make a local phone call 

During certain times there is a greater demand for 
these phones that can make local calls. A waiting hne 
forms. What if person number three or four needs to 
make a call quickly? What if there is an "almost 
emergency," and the situation is urgent? As the waiting 
Une grows, so does the chance that someone (or even 
several someones) will need to make a call immediately. 
Of course, we try to be patient. We wait quietly 
because no one wants to be impoUte to the person using 
the phone or ask him/her to hurry. Well, we want to, 
but we don't. I think we really need one or two more 
phones that can be used for local calls. 

I've heard people say, "If you reaUy need to call out, 
use a pay phone." Unfortunately, the pay phones are 
also occupied during the "rush hours." What can we 
do? I'm wilUng to do my part. I'd Uke to have a touch- 
tone phone for local caUs, and I will pay the difference 
ir pric between a regular telephone and a touch-tone 
phone. There, you have it in writing. Let's improve this 
situation soon.

Acccat a the studcDt newspaper of Southern Col- 
lege of Seventh-day AdventUtj and b releaied each Thursday 
with the exception of vacation and exam weeks. Opinions ex- 
pressed in letters and in by-lined articles are the opinion of the 
author and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the editors, 
Southern College, the Seventhnlay Adventist church, or the 

WurPs Worldly SA? 

Dear Editor: 

This is a reply to a recent letter to "Dear Lori" in the 
Campus Chatter which has raised some interesting ques- 
tions. The reply to the letter by the CARE staff more 
than adequately defended their position, but I feel that 
some of the accusations leveled against the Student 
Association need to be addressed. 

First, I would like to say that I appreciate the con- 
cern for a Christ-centered Student Association that the 
letter calls for, and I believe that any organization or 
individual should have Christ as their central focus-after 
all, that is the purpose behind a Christian education. 
The first question raised was, "Does the SA feel any 
responsibiUty for the spiritual welfare of SC's students 
when they plan activities, or do they leave that to the 
SM club or the SMA?" This question is easily answered 
by looking at the constitution of the Student Associa- 
tion of Southern College of SDA. Under ARTICLE I, 
paragraphs 1 and 2, we can find an answer to your 


1 . To promote Christian fellowship and unity be- 
tween students, faculty, and staff of Southern Col- 
lege within the framework of the principles of 
God's word, thus producing a community that 
graphically demonstrates the character of the in- 
finite personal God through people. 

2. To bring together under central leadership and 
direction various co^urriculai and exUa-curricular 
snident activities that contribute to a healthy, grow- 
ing. Christian college community. 

Our role is to promote and maintain Christian 
fellowship and Christian community, and I feel that so 
far this year we have stayed true to this purpose The 

SA does feel a concern for maintaining a Chtiill 
mosphere on campus and at all functions, andwhj 
activity is planned we do our best to make surtij 
doesn't contradict school or church standards.^ 
The second question was, "In their planning,' 
seeing how close they can get to the secular* 
satisfy the largest number of secular minds, or Ml 
forgotten their sacred responsibility to the stude | 
to 'help them heavenward'?" T 

I would Uke to say that I have never consiat"| 
idea of "seeing how close we can get to 
worid." The secular worid surrounds us; it is soi 
that we aU live in, and only by Christ's influen«| 
lives can we be in the world and not of the ^ 
As Christians, there should be no distinction 
secular and spiritual. God will be in everythi"* 
do. One of the goals of the SA is to bring toge'B 
curricular activities that contribute to a heal »■ 
ing Christian college community, and we are s 
do this in a very Christ-like way. I also sincere J^ 
that it is every Christian's responsibility to 
brother heavenward," and that this burden Ues 
individual as well as with organizations sue 

I believe that the SA has already acoeP 1 
challenge to pay closer attention to the sP'"'" (* 
man. We have been involved with CARE au 
year, and by appointing a CARE represenJ^^J 
SA executive position we are making a vis'""^ 
of our concern for the Christian attitude on

we can serve in the best way for this scl

The Valley Experience 

^ Jim Herman 

ti-re we are, coming to the end of the week after the 
Week of Prayer. This traditionally has been a week that 
has meant discouragement and has been a "downer" 
for many in their Christian experience. As the intensity 
of the past week has been taken away and we come back 
to normal everyday Uving and problems, many times we 
find that our spiritual lives seem empty or even 
discouraging. But look at it this way: we have all had 
the proverbial "mountain-top" experience. What is 
meant by that term "mountain-top experience"? 

Have you ever climbed a high mountain, taking hours 
to reach the summit? Do you recaU the view that you 
saw the exhilaration that you felt as the wind blowing 
ovjer the ridge met your face? Do you remember the feel- 
■ ' that you had as you gazed into the valley fUled with 

Jds or a city? Do you remember the moments that you 
t stood there drinking in that experience? Even now 
i probably can experience some portions of the same 
feelings that you had up on a mountain. 

We in the same way have had a mountain-top ex- 
perience in our sphitual life during the Week of Prayer. 
- Now we have come back to the "valley," but we need 
not faU into discouragement. Can I suggest several things 
that you can do to help you cope with the weeks to 
come? . 

You see, it's impossible to stay on the mountam. That 

is really not ordinary existence-that's exhilaration-and 

there is nothing wrong with that; but we need to learn 

' how to live without that exhilaration and still survive 

splrituaUy. Our Uves must go on normally. So let me sug- 

' gest several things that you can do for dealing with this 

' mountain-top experience. 

' First, reflect often on the experience that you had last 
fek of Prayer. Recall the sermons, the illustrations, 
Ifeelings that you experienced. On reflection, this will 
\l some of that experience back just as you can still 
Vour mind's eye see the spectacular mountam view 
Laybe even feel the wind in your face. That's one 
|g nice about the human brain-it allows us to 
Sember and experience this over and over again, 
lecond, after reflecting, re-affirm the reaUty of that 
%rience. Tell yourself that it was a real experience. 
&e was nothing fake or bogus about it. You were 
k you experienced these things, it was a defmite 


Ihird, accept as normal the valley experience. No one 
|tay on the mountain aU the time. We have to live 
operate in the vaUey. Just as you came from your 
intain-top experience and made your way down the 
ko the vaUey it is not a denial of the experience you 
lAnticipate the next trip to the mountain. So as you 
^t and reaffirm the reality of that experience, look 
lard to another day when you can climb another 
ftual mountain and look within Canaan's border. 


Many students responded to Elder Pearson's call. 

Afterglow Renews Commitment 

By Shannon Born 
After approximately 100 students made new or re- 
newed commitments to Jesus at the close of Elder 
Pearson's service Friday night, one of the-most sptnt- 
filled, movmg afterglows followed. The church was near- 
ly half-filled vrith 350-400 students who stayed. Candles, 
soft music, and the reverent attitude of students seek- 
ing the Lord with new fervor made this afterglow a 
special time. The congregation sang a few hymns mix- 
ed in with special musics and special readings. John 
Dysinger explained how the secret of commitment was 
letting God have control and not trying to change on 
your own. The students broke into small groups for 
prayer and then closed the evening by joining hands in 
a chcle that covered half the sanctuary to sing "Side by 
Side." The words "I'll meet you in Heaven" were very 
real after the commitments were made as the Spirit of 
God was feh that evening.

' Here's to Carole and her cohorts of the student 
association who made the SA ski party such a huge suc- 
cess! ! Thanks to them, many SC students enjoyed a day 
they wiU never forget! For those of you who did not en- 
joy Sunday's Ski Day at Lake Ocoee, here's how it all 
happened. , . r. 

The old Bluebird bus pUoted by RusseU Cook lett 

from Wright HaU at about 8:30 a.m. for the short drive 
o ocoee. Unfortunately, the bus didn't know where o 
go but before long there were several sk. boats loaded 
with delighted students criss-crossing the lake 

The conditions were great for skiing because the water 
was like glass and there was no wind. For some (myself 
included), this was a first attempt at skiing, so a boom 
came in handy. For others (Nelson, et. al.), this was a 

great chance to show finesse. 

Frank Small had such a good time skiing that 1 
forgot all about lunch until it was over, whereafter J 
he could talk about was food. 

Fortunately, no one suffered any serious injury.' 
worst was Victor Rivas' rope burn, which even he J 
forgotten by now. 

The ski party was the place to be even if you are J 
into skiing Jack McClarty brought along his TV sol 
could watch the Atlanta Falcons play against Demi 



Seven boats were used for the skiing bonanza.

Elder Dan Matthews, director of Faith for Today and 
host of Christian Lifestyle Magazine, was the guest 
speaker at the Religion Division's retreat held September 
20-22 at Cohutta Springs Adventist Center. 

In three presentations to reUgion majors, faculty, and 
their families. Elder Matthews said, "What the world 
needs to know most is what God is really like. God is 
personal, living, faithful, returning, and most important, 
God is forgiving. And the way the world is going to And 
out what He is like is by looking at His followers." 

Elder Matthews told how Christ's method of reaching 
people was the only one that worked. He explained how 
Christ came close to people where they were and won 
their confidence. "God is in the people business, and 
His primary objective is to win people's confidence so 
they want to learn about Him." 

Elder Matthews also showed what his work involved 
and how it related to the messages of his two previous 
presentations at the religion retreat. He especially dealt 
with the new program. Christian Lifestyle Magazine, and 
how it was designed to reflect the characteristics of Jesus 
in a practical Christian way. 

Many students benefited from informal conversations 
with Elder Matthews during mealtimes and between 

About 90 religion majors and their families attended 
the retreat, which was organized by the Student 
Ministerial Association. They came to get away from 
work and studies and seek spiritual and social 

Friday afternoon and Sunday morning the facilities 
of the Center were available to the students for water- 
skiing, swiimning, canoeing, hiking, and, for the adven- 
turous, a ropeswing over the lake. Sabbath afternoon 
was free for the students to gather around the piano and 
sing, to hike and observe nature, or to relax beside the 
lake. Saturday night entertainment consisted of a variety

P.S. Send Money 

I Dear Ma, 

Well, I'm back in school. I guess you're happy this 
.; last year. I know I am. 

hings is different this year, though. It's like the facul- 
|u of a sudden decided to start enforcing the rules. 
Tiember how it was here when I was a freshman? 
iyone screaming "Radical this!" and "Blasphemy 
Jt!" and all the kids at SMC were heretics? I guess 
Jt scared the folks up in Wright HaU some, 'cause they 
Iflinged the name of the school and got 'em a new presi- 
dent and fired half the teachers, or so it seems. That's 
J fine, 1 reckon, 'cept now it's going too far the other way. 
f My buddy JimBo (you remember JimBo? He's the one 
t got bit by the snapping turtle when we was huntin' 
Vdads in the creek. Snapper purt near bit his leg off.) 
ivay, JimBo calls it a "sweeping tide of anti-religious 

M, 1 don't know nothin' about that, but them be- 
lo nit-picky about who does what and what gets paid 
Itelling everything we can't do and such is gonna hurt 
J reputation more than that heretic stuff ever did. 
Itell 'em that, too, if they'd ask me, but they never do. 
'Course, some things never change. Ma. I still got 
them durned cockroaches in my room. And me in the 
new wing, too! I tell you, these varmits are right near 
as big as those rats out in the hay mow that I used to 
1 shoot from the back porch with my .22. I tried to hit 
some of them roaches once, just to see if I could, but 
the deans came up and confee-scated my rifle. I guess 
I was makin' too much noise for people to study. Don't 

suppose they liked the holes in the wall too much, 
neither. Anyway, I've got to where whenever I see a 
roach I just chuck one of my size 12EE's at 'em. Never 
have hit one, but it makes me feel better. 

They got the big ol' fancy organ all working now. 
Remember, Ma, the one I told you cost millions and 
millions of dollars? It surely is nice, and so big! But like 
JimBo says, it ain't nearly as much fun to watch some- 
one play the thing as it is to watch Dr. Robertson flap 
his arms leading the song service. And I don't think 
there's an organ anywhere that sounds as purty as your 
singin', Ma. You know I ain't much of a singer, but you 
get that whole church full of people, and Doc Robert- 
son has us aU singing ockee-pellow, and well, it just 
makes you wonder why they thought they had to spend 
so much money to get good music. 'Course, it ain't really 
my problem, since my money didn't pay for it, but you 
know what I mean. 

Speaking of music, we had us a lawn concert the other 
day. It was real nice, but they didn't sing songs like you 
sing. These were more hke rock songs, a little. I reckon 
it don't matter much what the tnusic's like, though, as 
long as folks can understand what you're sayin', and 
as long as you mean it. But people are people, and some 
were pickin' and gripin' and sayin' that sort of music 
was wrong. Didn't faze JimBo one bit, though. He said, 
"Folks are entitled to Usten to any kind of music what 
pleases 'em, and if you don't like one kmd of music, 
then reckon you oughtta go where that music aint 
playin' ! " JimBo always did have a way with words hke 

WelLMa, I best close and get back to studyin'. TeU 

Daddy I said HeUo, and take care of that ol' hound dog 

of mine. I love you all, and wiU try to make it home 

Thanksgiving if the Pinto don't quit on me. 

All my love,

How Do They Stand? 

Men's Slow Pitch Standings 


Join the All-night Vigil 

By William McKnight 

This Saturday night the slow pitch Softball season will 
ciUminate with the annual all-night tournament. Thir- 
teen teams will compete in a double elimination contest 
until the wee hours of the morning. If it is anything like 
previous tournaments, it will prove to be a very social 
event as well as an exciting sports happening. It is the 
place to be this Saturday night, whether you are play- 
ing or spectating, so come out and enjoy SC Softball. 

To try to assist the viewer and prepare the player, the 
following are the teams to watch Saturday night that 
could go all the way. 

1. Duff 

As anticipated, this team has proven to be the best. 
Boasting a 6-0 record, they have coupled power hitting 
with a solid defense. Mike Dickerhoff and Myron Mix- 
on lead this team to what should be an early morning 

2. Grys 

This team is 5-2 and have done it with a balanced hit- 
ting attack featuring the Ukes of John Grys, Jerry 
Russell, and John Machado. Russell Ukes the long ball 
and has plenty of support to pull out many victories 
Saturday night, including maybe the big one. 

3. Denton 

Denton is 5-1 with only Dedeker and Parkhurst yet 
to play. Their only loss was an extra inning affair with 
McKnight. Mike Comley is excellent at shortstop. Of- 
fensively, Bob Murdoch and Allan Martin provide this 
well-spirited team with the potential to last a long time. 

4. Welch 

Welch's only loss came to Duff. This team has several 
players of better-than-average ability, but lacks the long 
ball and other bare necessities to finish the job. 
However, they will not go down early. 

5. McKnight 

McKnight had a fast start, winning their first five. 
They have lost their last two. McKnight has good power 
from its hitting core of Randy Thuesdee, William 
McKnight, and Fred Wells. Defensively, they are ade- 
quate, featuring Max McGee at shortstop. If this team 
can regain their early season form, they have an out- 
side chance to be number one. 

6. Stone 

Don't let their mediocre record of 4-3 fool you. Brent 
Barney has been near hitless for four games. If he can 
remember what caused him to hit those five homers in 
one game and combine this with Craig Stone's homers. 
Stone will be the team to beat. 

See you Saturday night!

Anyone for Tournament? 

The following tennis players are still competing in the 
championship teimis tournament: Ted Evans, Jay Jones, 
Bob Murdoch, Brandon Nash, Bobby Vaughn, Ben 
McArthur, Bob Kamieneski, Allan Martin, Steve Vogel, 
Mike Skelton, Arlin Richert, Max McGhee, Andrew 
Lale, and Steve Jaecks. The tournament is single elimina- 
tion for them from here on out. 

Prepare for College Bowl 

If you enjoy trivial pursuit or academic competition, 
then you will be interested in participating in the 1985-86 
SC CoUege Bowl. 

CoUege Bowl is an academic competition which begins 
Monday, January 13,and ends Tuesday, Feburary 25. 
Each team consists of four members and an alternate. 
The games will be played two days per week during the 
supper hour in the back of the cafeteria. The competi- 
tion is a double elimination tournament. The final match 
will be played at convocation in the gym. 

We hope to have twelve teams again this year 
However, several of last year's captains graduated, and 
we are in search of new captains. If you are interested 
in being a captain or being on a team, contact Dean 
Hobbs or Dr. Ben McArthur as soon as possible. 

CoUege Bowl is sponsored by the Student Association 
and the Division of Humanities.

the championship is up for grabs between three li 
John Grys' team is barely ahead of the pack 1

is led by co-captain Russell and centerfielder I 

Greg Cain's and Rob Lonto's teams are standinij

sively, but they have made up for it by strong r 
and pitching from Everett Schlisner and a slrofl 
from Jim Crone. WhUe Lonto has the "Doctorfl

New Adult Studies 

By Scott McCIure and Rondi Bauer 

On September 1, 1985, Southern College embarked 
on an adventure in higher learning. This date marks the 
beginning of the Adult Studies Division. This division 
holds special classes and workshops for those over the 
youjge of twenty-two and o < en e c» «n« n gt i ii cn» for con- 
°"'ventions. It also provides the facilities for these gather- 
ings. This new division is located in what was formerly 
the Thatcher Annex. 

Dr. Lilya Wagner is the Chairperson of the Adult 
Studies Division. Dr. Wagner has a doctorate in educa- 
tion and a wide range of experience in journalism and 
public relations, making her well qualified to lead out 
in such a venture. She is the only faculty member 
employed in this division. 

The administration is hoping to reach an entirely new 
group of people with this program. The Convention 
Center not only enables us to lure various groups to our 
campus for meetings, it also serves as an area to house 
visiting friends and relatives. The Adult Studies Divi- 
sion is designed to better serve our constituency, and, 
by reaching a previously overlooked group, to generate 
more income for the school. 

This new division is dedicated to lifelong learning. 
As Dr. William Allen, Vice-President for Academic Ad- 
ministration stated, "It is just another part of our col- 
lege's commitment to excellence in academic

Save the Whales and the Wagners 

->. I saw a t-shirt the other day that said, "Save the 

\_ ) Whales." Shortly after that 1 saw another t-shirt that 
said, "Nuke the Whales." It's doubtful that any SC 
students will have the chance to do either. What can we 
do for the whales? Send money to Greenpeace so they 
can buy a new boat to replace the one that got blown 
up? Boycott the "Whale Steak" department at the V.M. 
so the poor little whalies won't get hurt? There are a 
lot of things that can be done to save the whales-there's 
just not a lot SC students and staff can do. 

What can be done to save the Wagners? The Union 
College Board has voted a call for Dr. John Wagner to 
be president and Dr. LUya Wagner to be vice-president 
for public affairs. They are prayerfully considering the 
offer, of course; however, many people here sincerely 
wish the Wagners would stay and continue the job 
they've just begun. This editor can't help but wonder, 
have the SC students and staff shown the Wagners the 
hospitality we advertise? There are many things that can 
be done to "Save the Wagners," and SC students and 
staff can do them.

Wagners' Response to "Riot' 

Dear Friends; 

The after-SA Senate "demonstration" on Monday 
night was really a special occasion for both Lilya and 
me. Thank you so much for your expressions of love 
and appreciation. The giant card, the roses, the singing 
and chanting, the many individual notes and 
conversations-all speak eloquently of friends we enjoy 
among the students, faculty and staff of this great 

I'd like to have said much more to the large group 
gathered in front of Wright Hall on Monday night. I'd 
like to have expressed my really genuine appreciation

Dear Students: 

Your display of support and love last nightwas defmitely 

a memorable experience and one I deeply appreciate. 

Whether I go or stay, I will always remember being 

dragged out at 10:00 p.m. to experience such caring and 


The kind of spirit you displayed would mean, of 
course, that you would understand if I were to leave 
because another place says it needs me at this time. It 
certainly isn't an easy decision to make regarding leav- 
ing here, since I'm just beginning to get acquainted with 
the students. Yet I know that we all want the Lord to 
guide our lives, and if He guides me in the direction of 
out west, you would go on being the great student body 
you are. 

Again, thank you.

Defending the Food 

Dear Editor; 

I'm sick and tired of it~not the food at thed 
(and elsewhere on campus)-but the complaints u 
about it. 

I am not blind to the problems that exist withlj 
service on campus; long lines with slow checkenl 
ing hall that is sometimes uncomfortably cold,j 
cutlery that flips food and then breaks, no b 
Sundays, being unable to get from the cafelol 
dent Center and vice versa, and having potali^ 
meal, etc. 

However, I've been to Adventist institutioBl 
the world, and I believe that overall we haveai| 
tion that we can be proud of. I 've been to p 
the food was too spicy, too hot, or too cold 111 
The supper menus were the same, the tablesy 
cleaned weekly, the diners were expected to su 
own trays and utensils, and no additional serv 

Okay, so you still say, "For the prices we'nl 
we deserve better." Not only do we expect guf 
but good food all the time and at low prices. ( 
do some of us help? We take out trays, platal 
and glasses, and we don't return them. W| 
overabundance of napkins and pour salt ail | 
place. I 

It has to be mentioned that the problem oil 
very real in this world, and we should at least mi 
that there is food. .-I 

My conclusion is that unless we have sped J 
tions for improvement, we should realize lW~ 
it good" and stop griping.

I Life Goes On 

By Gordon Bietz 
It was one of my first funerals. 1 had not been very 
dose to death. One of my grandparents had died, but 
i I didn't really know them very well, so their death did 
not go deep into my consciousness. 

Now here I was, the pungent smell of flowers filling 

the church as mourners filed quietly into the sanctuary. 

There in the casket lay the deceased. He was cold, I 

juess I never have touched a dead person. There is 

something that keeps me from wanting my warm, Uving, 

blood-filled hands coming into contact with the paUor 

of death. The satin pillows surrounded his head and face, 

the hands rested by his side in a way that they probably 

Jmever had rested before. Tears came to my eyes, though 

I I really was not well acquainted with the man. 

T Something profound should be said, it seemed. This 

lioccasion at the brink of eternity demanded that all of 

lius think great thoughts. As we talked with each other 

l-we should have been using measured words and speak- 

ling deep thoughts about life, eternity, and love. 

'""lilt rather than hearing such deep thoughts, I heard 

Me talking to each other about the price of gas, the 

^pennant race, and the weather. I wondered, "Don't 

^understand what is happening here? Man returns 

to dust-creation in reverse-and we speak of the 

I found that as a pastor I was taken into the society 
of professionals who deal regularly with death. The clin- 
cher came when the mortician and the funeral director 
were talking and I heard one of them say, "Boy, did 
you hear about the drowning of the two kids the other 
day at the lake? Well, I was lucky and I got both of 

"Got both of them"-what was he talking about? 
Then it registered. This was shop talk. He got the 
business. Some family's tragedy was his business. He 
was pleased and someone was devastated. How insen- 
sitive, how crude and cruel! I thought. 

But as I have had time to reflect, I realize that Ufe 
must continue in the face of death. There is stiU the price 
of gas, a close pennant race, and a change in weather. 
And to always live on the brink of eternity, always 
thinking deep thoughts, would probably be more than 
a person could handle. .^ 

Heralds Quartet 
Visits SC 

The Heralds Quartet, formerly known as the King's 
Heralds Quartet, will be visiting CoUegedale Church on 
October 9 at 7:00 p.m. This internationally-known 
quartet has a reputation as one of the top ten gospel 
quartets in the world. They have performed in over fifty 
countries and have a deep desire to sing the gospel to 
"every tongue and nation." In fact, they have record- 
ed records in twenty-seven different languages. The 
Heralds sing a wide range of music, including anthems, 
gospels, folk songs, and country. There wiU be a special 
part of their program for children. The concert is free

On a cold and rainy November day in 1984, the alumm 
of Southern Junior College stood under a tent. They had 
gathered to donate to Southern CoUege the money they 
had raised for the renovation of the old music buildmg, 
MUler HaU. It was to become So-Ju-Conian ReUgion 
Center, named for their ahna mater. Southern Jumor 
College. ^ . -ij- 

Soon afterward, work was begun on the buildmg. 
First, the roof was reconstructed and reshingled to keep 
it from leaking. Then work on the inside began. 

Most of the rooms were renovated to better suit the 
ReUgion Division's needs. On one floor, the old music 
practice rooms were removed and two medium-sized 
classrooms put in their place. Other rooms include a 
small library for selected materials, which will be used 
to meet small seminar classes, and a kichenette and 
lounge area for faculty, as well as faculty offices and 
readers' rooms. , , „j 

The smaU chapel in the building is bemg kept, and 
a projection booth for audio-visual equipment has been 
added to it. A baptistry was also added, as a result of 
a special donation from the Southern Junior College 
alumni. They donated funds for an ^l^^'^"""; °J8.=;"' ^ 
: piano, and a pubUc address system to be installed m the 
chape as weU. The chapel will be used for Rehgion Divi- 
foTchapels and special programs. Studems will use it 
for HomUetics and Pastoral Ministenes classes, so they 

may have practice in the practical side of the ministry. 
The buUding wiU be centraUy heated and cooled. 
Several sidewalks will give it easy access to other 
buildings. As of today, the concrete for the sidewalks 
has been poured, and most of the changing of walls and 
plastering has been completed inside. Much of what re- 
mains to be done is the interior decorating, which is be- 
ing planned by Debra DeGrave of DeGrave Design. 

Dr Gordon Hyde, Chairman of the ReUgion Division, 
said he likes the idea of having a reUgion building on 
campus and that the Religion Division is hoping to be 
in So-Ju-Conian HaU by second semester. 

When this school moved from GraysvUle, Tennessee, 
to CoUegedale in 1916, the name was changed to 
Southern Junior CoUege, and it remained that untU 1945, 
when it became Southern Missionary CoUege. 

When Southern Junior College was located m this 
vaUey in 1916 it was very isolated. There were no 
telephones, no paved roads, and no cars for even the 
faculty To get to the school, the students came by tram 
to the Thatcher Switch. There they were picked up m 
a mule-drawn cart for a ride to the coUege. 

The first student pubUcation for Southern Jumor Col- 
lege appeared m 1920 and was caUed "The Sojuconian," 
after the name of the school. Perhaps this is where the 
name for So-Ju-Conian ReUgion Center came from. 

The coUege no doubt is indebted to the Sojuconians, 
an enthusiastic and involved elemem of this school s 
alumni, for their contributions to this project.

Olde England 


By Jonathan Wurl 
What a chance to broaden my 
horizons! A chance to go to England 
and visit the birthplace of Shakespeare, 
the burial place of Milton, and the home 
of Wordsworth; to see St. Paul's 
Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, and 
Buckingham Palace; and to hear sym- 
phonies in the Royal Albert Hall, see 
plays in Covent Gardens, and visit the 
land of the Beatles-to do all of this with 
Dr. Wohlers' Adventure in Europe and 
get college credit for it! It sounded too 
good to be true! Well, 1 checked on the 
dates and the price, and 1 convinced my

parents that this would be the best way 
for me to get my history requirements 
out of the way, and on July 9, I was 
heading for Gatwick Airport on a 
British Caledonian airplane. 

We arrived in England about 8:00 
a.m. on July 10, and immediately got on 
the bus to go to see Hastings, Dover, 
and the Canterbury Cathedral before 
making our way back to Newbold Col- 
lege, our home for the first week. This 
set the pace for the whole trip. We 
toured without ceasing. Nobody com- 
plained about not getting his money's 
worth, although I did hear a few low 
mutterings about walking too fast and 
not resting enough. 

The whole idea behind Adventure in 
Europe is for studen« to get a chance 
to experience firsthand some places of 
major historical significance instead of 
just reading about them in textbooks 
(although we had to do some reading, 
too). It was really impressive to visit 
places like Runnymede, where some 
English Barons forced King John to sign 
the Magna Charta, and the Tower of 
London, where Henry VIII had Anne 
Boleyn beheaded. Besides getting to see 
places like Stonehenge, Blenheim 
Palace, Bath, and York, and visiting 
history museums like the British

went to classical concerts, a ballet, 
several art museums, and a few plays. 
The bus became our classroom with lec- 
tures from Dr. Wohlers coming over the 
P.A. system whenever we traveled for 
any length of time. When we weren't 
getting lectured, the P.A. system was us- 
ed to play a piece of serious music that 
was significant either to the area we were 
going to or the time period that we hap- 
pened to be talking about. Some of us 
tried several times to gain control of the 
radio, but Dr. Wohlers always seemed 
to win. However, one day on a sleepy 
drive through the Highlands of Scotland 
we were shocked to hear Mike Love and 
the rest of the Beach Boys cuttin' loose 
on "Surfm' U.S.A." We later found 
out that the Beach Boys represent a 
significant contribution to music, and 
that besides that, they happen to be a 
favorite of Dr. Wohlers. 

The first three weeks of the trip we 
spent going all over the United

Europe for Credit 

Southern College students will again have the 
opportunity to earn credit while traveling in 
Europe next summer. Departing from Atlanta 
June 12 and returning July 11, Adventure in 
Europe 1986 will include four days in Holland, five 
days in West Germany, three days in Austria, 
seven days in Italy, three days in Switzerland, thre^ 
days in France, and two days in Belgium. 

The tour is especially designed for college 
studenu. but non-students would also find it most 
enjoyable. Six semester hours of credit may be 
earned on the tour. These credits may be in cither 
history or humanities. This credit will satisfy the 
general educaUon world history requirement, and 
may also help satisfy the upper division writing 

According to Bill Wohlers, Professor of History

My Turn/By Jere Geisinger 

Friendship vs. Courtship 

Two Sabbaths ago a young man told me that he didn't 
want to "waste his time" on a lady he didn't think he 
would marry. According to the young lady, he 
figuratively dropped her onto the generic brand shelf and 
proceeded to scrutinize the name-brand labels. She was 
understandably jarred by the experience. 

Many people evaluate individuals of the opposite sex 
in terms of possible marriage. They date, even casual- 
ly, with the intent of developing a serious relationship 
sometime in the future, giving their dates ratings Uke 
"safe" (no chance of a watch), "has potential" (time 
to meet the parents), or "getting interesting!" (time to 
^irisit the courthouse ). 

[ 4m not discrediting natural preference, but a pro- 

1 arises when other people interest us only because 

i Idf what we can get from them. Exploitation, whether 

it be allegedly legitimate-as in some marriages-or other- 

IV^wise, is unfair and selfish. 

I once attended a school where dating was not allow- 
ed. Any association between single people of the op- 
posite sex was considered to be courtship. Although 
Southern College has no rules against dating, a few 
students claim to date only for serious reasons. Some 
students make no claim and still appear to date with only 
marriage in mind. 

Why do so many relationships orient themselves 
around future potential-marriage? I think one major 
factor is the seriousness with which people approach a 
new dating situation. They feel that if the other in- 
dividual isn't hopelessly attracted to them in the first 
three dates, then "probation" will close and leave them 
single. So they enter new relationships with high hopes, 
only to have those hopes dashed to pieces. How many 
people should one plan to marry, anyway? 

I believe that marriage is an act of God which should 
not be anticipated any more than would be an earth- 
quake, hurricane, or fire-although these things do hap- 
pen. In accounting terms, marriage is an extraordinary 
item, unusual in nature and not expected to recur. Yet 
despite its sporadic nature, people scheme to promote 
its contingency. 

Face the facts. First, no individual will marry even a 
small percentage of the world's population, though 
some, like Solomon and Liz Taylor, have tried. Second, 
God created man and woman to be equal. May I 
therefore suggest that God created people, regardless of 
gender, with the capacity to be friends for the sake of 
friendship? Approximately half of the world's popula- 
tion is of a different sex than you are. Many of them 
would be wonderful friends if you would be their friend, 
accepting the fact that courtship is not the reason for 

Courtship has its place, but should courtship be the 
only reason for dating? How many people have been 
hurt because what could have been a superb friendship 
was approached as a courtship? How many of those 
"safe" dates could have developed into good friendships?

What a birthday present! For Robbie Patterson, age 
K^|, it was her wedding. On Tuesday, September 24, at 
^iOOp.m., Mrs. Robbie Patterson and Harry Deiseroth

■^Bed that her mother had enjoyed her first marriage 
^"nuch that she wanted to try it again. She hates living

Joker Explained 

The Joker, the student directory of SC, was released 
Friday, September 20, just three and a half weeks after 
registration. Here are some facts SC students might be 
interested in. 

The Joker includes approximately 1 ,248 students who 
are taking eight hours or more. The eight-hour cutoff 
was to eliminate faculty members, nursing extension 
students, and others who are not normally pictured in 
the Joker. The eight-hour cutoff is not arbitrary. Those 
who are not taking eight or more hours are not 
dues-paying members of the student association. 

Orlando students who weren't pictiu'ed either were 
people who missed their picture appointments or were 
non-traditional students. 

The College Press, under manager Allen Olsen, 
printed 2,340 copies. Joker Editor Paul Ware said, 
"Without the help of the College Press and a legion of 
enthusiastic staff, we'd still be waiting."

Psychotherapist Gifts 
Benefit Behavorial 
Science Department 

Dr. Maurice Siler, retiring psychotherapist for the 
Pikeville prison, recently donated over 4(X) volumes from 
his private library to the Behavorial Science department 
at Southern College. Teachers Ed Lamb and Gerald Col- 
vin picked up the books at Siler's residence in Coalmont, 

Many of the books deal with highly specific areas per- 
tinent to psychoanalysis and medical assessment, such 
as projective responses, learning disabilities and brain 
damage, child and adolescent evaluations, and 
psychopathologies. A number of titles are by pioneers 
in the fields of psychology, anthropology, and 
philosophy (e.g., Maslow, Allport, Jaspers, Bettleheim, 
Freud, Jones, Reik, Ghesell, Munroe, Boring, Skinner, 
Moreno, Redfield, Mead, etc). A number of maturing, 
multivolume sets grace the collection: Psychology: A 
Study of a Science (vols. 1-3), Development in the 
Rorschach Technique (vols. 1-2), Progress in 
Psychotherapy (vois. 1-5), Personality and the Behavior 
Disorders (vols. 1-2), Studies in Human Behavior (vols. 
1-6), TheLifeand Work of Sigmund Freud (vols. 1-3), 
Comprehensive Textbook of Psychiatry/II (vols. 1-2), 
Mental Retardation (vols. 1-6), and Progress in Learn- 
ing Disabilities (vols. 1-3). 

Unusual single-volume works include such titles as 
Clinical Psychiatry, Handbook of General Psychology, 
Handbook of Experimental Psychology, Ego Develop- 
ment, Progress in Group and Family Therapy, School 
of Psychoanalytic Thought, and Electrical Stimulation 
of the Brain. 

Dyslexia, reading methodologies, and many other 
education-oriented texts are being made available to the 
education faculty. The collection is housed in the 
Behavioral Science Research Laboratory in Summerour 
Hall since it is benefactor Siler's wish that both faculty 
and studenu have immediate, working access to his 
much-loved library. A laboratory assistant is available 
on most days to supervise its use.

The King and His Court 

apS^ f o; a new event at Southern College: .he Kan^ 
andHis Court. This is a softbaU team consisung of four 
olavers-a pitcher, a catcher, a first baseman, and a ver- 
Seld^ who roves aU over the softbaU field retr.ev- 
ing the hit balls. „ ^ ,. 

The King and His Court includes "The King. NeUe 
Tltoreson. and his "Court," Steve Jaecks (catcher , 
John Maretich (first baseman), and Ted Evans (rover . 
They faced the all-star softbaU players of Southern Col- 
lege led by the "Doctor K" of CoUegedale, George 

'^.^or was out that "The King," NeUe Thoreson 
could not be hit. Just like most rumors, this one proved 
to be false. The SC all-stars jumped out to an early lead 
as Everett Schlisner knocked in a couple of runs off the 
King in the first inning. 

In the second. Steve Vogel batted in Junmy Crone, 
who had doubled, to increase the lead to 3-0. Then in 
the bottom of the second, it looked as though the King 
and his Court were climbing back into the game as John 
Maretich hit a line-drive home run. 

The third inning proved to be exciting as John Grys 
led off with a triple. Craig Stone batted Grys in to in- 
aease the lead to 4-1 . At this point it looked as though 
the students had the game wrapped up, but then Ted 
Evans came to bat. Pangman's pitching arm was look- 
ing a little tired, but even if he had been firing the ball 

at 120 m.p.h., it would have made no difference to Ted 
EvMs Evans came to the plate with a mission-a m - 
"rto hit the ball over the fence. As he hi. t e b^ 
vou could almost hear it scream. Bye, bye! ims 
homer seemed to bring some life back into the King and 

"' Aft°er"he third inning, defense would be the key to 
victory. In the fourth. Jerry RusseU made an unass.s ed 
double play to retire the side. Then in the Mh the 
Court made a couple of errors which allowed the all- 
stars to sneak in another run. This made the score 5-2 

The King pitched exceptionally well for the rest of the 
game, striking out the majority of the all-stars. The 
Court battled, but couldn't catch up. In the seventh in- 
ning, they had one last chance. The King got to first on 
a walk. Ted Evans sent another long ball to the fence, 
but this one was on the wrong side and the center-fielder 
snagged it out of the air. Steve Jaecks hit a shot to short, 
but Jen7 RusseU made a dynamite defensive display as 
he stretched to backhand the grounder and fired it to 
first for the out. It aU ended as John Maretich popped 
out. and the all-stars finished with a 5-3 win. 

The King and his Court made a noble effort Thurs- 
day night, but this game required a bit more than mere 
nobUity. It required a perfect performance. The SC aU- 
stars came closer to perfection as they dethroned the 
King and his Court, and they have now estabished 
themselves as royalty. 

Tennis Update 

Eight players remain in 
the championship tennis 
tournament. The four 
matches that wiU send four 
players to the semifinals are; 
Ted Evans vs. Jay Jones. 
Bob Murdoch vs. Bobby 
Vaughan, Bob Kamieneski 
vs. Steve Vpgel, and Steve 
Jaecks, last year's cham- 
pion, vs. freshman Max 

Greg Hess and friend, Doug Fowler and Jodi Larrabee make serious snuggle-bunnies. 

Bird? Plane? Football? 

By Sieve "Howard CoseU" French 
The air has a chUl about it whUe the night is inter- 
rupted by many bright lights. As we near these lights, 
we begin to recognize a famiUar sight. Shhh! Let's Usten 
to what's going on. 

"Bob, deep post pattern with a halfback option on 
three. Break." 

"Dovra. Ready. Set. Hut, hut. Hike." 
The rush is intense, but the able-bodied quarterback 
scrambles right, evading the rushers onslaught. At the 
very last possible moment, the desperate quarterback 
heaves the whamskin (SDA footbaU). The baU is thrown 
with a tight spiral, slicing through the air. The crowd 
holds its breath. 

WUl the receiver catch up to the baU or wiU the defense 
intercept? The crowd waits with baited anticipation. You 
(yes, youl) now have the opportunity of a lifetime to 
catch Southern CoUege's most exciting sport. "Hawaiian 

What is "Hawaiian FootbaU"? It is a wide-open pass- 
ing game which has several unusual rules. One such rule 
is that the players may pass the baU from beyond the 
Une of scrimmage (for those who don't know what the 
Une of scrimmage is. Jack Drab is giving free footbaU 
cUnics. Ph. 238-3039). Another unique facet of 


"Hawauan FootbaU" is that there is no blocking or con- 
tact. A player is tackled by violently ripping one (or 
both, if you wish) of his fiags. These flags are strapped 
around a player's waist. 

There are many more unusual rules, but to find out. 
come to see "Hawaiian FootbaU" LIVE. (I'm told by 
reliable but confidential sources that there are a few good 
seats left, but hurry or you won't be on the front row.)

men have received a letter saying something like, "You 
ate lunch before church was over, and the computer told 
on you " Perhaps a handbook on computer spying turn- 
ed up in the men's dorm. And to think that only a hand- 
ful of students knew that it could be done, and most 
still don't know that it is being done. Invasions of one's 
privacy usually cause more resentment than conversion 
to result. Rumor has it that a statement on this practice 
is in the works. 

No, let us not slip out of church early to gobble up

Dear Editor: 

I am in agreement with JT Shim concerning the the 
food on campus. However, there is one specific com- 
plaint that I have. For the past several months, every 
single visit to the CK has been a disappointment! This 
isn't because of the quality, the price, or a cold veal 
SMOOTHIES! What's the problem? The only answer 
that I can get is that the blender is broken and no one 
will fix it. This is indeed a serious problem, yet it is not 
beyond help. 1 mean, how much can a $30 Osterizer 

Whaddaya say, SC: let's get our collective selves 
together and get the CK an Osterizer. Contributions will 
be accepted by Kevin Rice, Room 260, Talge HaU. An

.rnie Meets an Activist 

By Gordon Bielz 
file, a student at Southern College, is walking along 
thattanooga minding his own business when Steve, 
board and pen in hand, blocks his path. 

You look like a bright young man who is con- 
led about the state of the world. 

|e: I what? 

I said you look like you are not one of those 
pie who have their heads in the sand ignoring the 
'^reat issues of our time. 

'Amie: I guess. 

f Steve: Well, I am recruiting people who will give of 
■ their time to a cause that may well save the world. 

Arnie: No-I mean— well, sure, I am, but.... 

Steve: Listen! I am sure I have a concern here that will 
catch your attention. (Pausing a moment to review his 
clipboard) Here we are: did you know that there is a ma- 
jor danger that a spill from the barges that go up and 
down the Tennessee river could pollute the water and 
kill many fish and possibly people? 

Arnie: Well, I don't think that is too likely. 

Steve: Well, if you don't like the pollution cause, what 
about. ..(looking at his list again). How would you like 
to march tomorrow on behalf of enslaved black people 
in South Africa? A group will be meeting at the Peach 
Tree Plaza in Atlanta at 2 p.m. You know that an in- 
justice anywhere is a threat to justice right here in 

Arnie: No. ..I couldn't do that. I have a class at 2 p.m. 

ItArnie: I really don't want to volunteer for any causes. Steve: Ok, then, let me see. Do you know what would 

loi, happen if the Watts Bar Nuclear Reactor experienced 

I Steve: Do you mean you are not a bright young man a meltdown? Chattanooga people might be killed and 

ffconcerned about the state of the world? their children would probably have many diseases for

years to come. Would you be willing to join a sit-in...? 

Amie: No! I think the nuclear-power-fear mongera are 
pushing up our electric bills! 

Steve: Ok, ok. But what about nuclear bombs? Do you 
know how many times we could destroy the world with 
the nuclear arsenals that we presently have? Now, you 
go to Southern College, and certainly with their Chris- 
tian principles you would be opposed to the nuclear aims 
race. There will be a demonstration next week right here 
in Chattanooga at the time of Vice President Bush's visit. 

Arnie: Well, I don't know.... 

Steve: Oh, then, what about this one: Abortion! A 
group will be picketing Erlanger Medical Center for one 
week next month.... 

Arnie: Listen, I am a student. I don't have time to 
spend getting involved in these things. 

Steve: What? You have more important things to do 
than save the world? 

Amie: I am not sure participating in all those things 
would save the world. I think that giving the message 
of Christianity to the world will save the world. 

Steve: Oh. Well, then, you do have a cause. Tell me 
what you are doing for your cause so I can add it to my

In the early 1900's a group of eating disorders sur- 
faced which many medical experts feel is rapidly reaching 
epidemic proportions. The disorders, which are now af- 
fecting 20 percent of all college-age people, are anorex- 
ia, bulimia, and bulimarexia. These are not new 
disorders, for the historical medical records indicate that 
they existed even back in biblical times. But their 
prevalence in America today is unparalleled in medical 
history and thus has created a great need to understand 
these disorders as well as the treatment they require. 
Before the disorders and their treatments can be 
discussed, we must have an understanding of the three. 
Anorexia nervosa is a deliberate self-starvation which 
is often associated with low self-esteem, family pro- 
blems, and a feeling of lack of control over one's life. 
Bulimia involves recurrent episodes of binge eating 
which sometimes involves the intake of up to 5000 
calories at one sitting. These people have a tendency to 
be grossly overweight, in contrast with those who have 
bulimarexia. The person who suffers from bulimarexia 
believes that self-worth is dependent on low weight, so 
after episodes of binge eating he purges so as to not ab- 
sorb all the calories he has injested, or use laxatives to 
expel that which they have eaten. 

These disorders are not excluded by some mysterious 
barrier from our small Adventist community here at 
Southern College. Last year there were several known 
occurrences in the women's dorm as well as probably 
many cases that were unknown to the deans. Due to the 
use of the powder rooms and study rooms in Thatcher 
Hall as areas for purging by some bulimarexia sufferers, 
these rooms had to be closed off to all the ladies of the 
dorm. So far this school year no major problems have 
surfaced, but because of the number of students atten- 
ding the college, the odds are good that sooner of later 
some cases will appear. It should be pointed out that 
these disorders are not limited to females only, for, 
although no cases have been reported in Talge Hall, 10 
percent of all eating disorders are reported in males. 
The treatment of these disorders is handled very much 
like that used to treat an alcoholic. Group or individual 
psychotherapy, family therapy, behavior modification, 
and nutrition counseling in different combinations seem 
to make up the most successful treatment. In severe cases 
here at Southern College, victims are referred to 
Madison Hospital where good rehabilitation programs 
have been developed for those with these eating 
disorders. Sue Tehennepe, a former teacher in the 
Behavioral Science department here at Southern is now 
|N the primary counselor in this area at Madison. 
^ It seems that the most effective weapon used to pre- 
vent people from developing these disorders is that of 
awareness, for many times people do not reaUze the 
psychological and physical problems that could develop 
from disturbing the body's normal functions in these dif- 
ferent ways. These disorders are more than just bad 
eating habiU: they are diseases and must be treated as 
such in order to completely rehabilitate the person in- 
volved and keep him from becoming one of the unlucky 
ones who end up as fatalities as a result of these

The Lawbreaking Life 

I used to consider CoUegedale a quaint little town like 
Mayberry. Like Mayberry, CoUegedale has one Post Of- 
fice, one barber shop, and one grocery store. But 
Mayberry had only one Barney to contend with; we have 
an entire police force of Barneys and no Andy Griffiths 
to control them. Maybe I'm being too rash, comparing 
the CoUegedale cops to Barney Fife. Let me teU a little 
tory and let you decide. 

|0n the night of September 6, I was a bad, bad boy. 
Hter staying for the Afterglow service, I walked to my 
L. The air was warm and thick with suspense. I drove 
Et of the church parking lot, bumping the upper edge 
I the speed limit. I turned onto Camp Road. I thought 
bout not using my turn signal. Wow, that would have 
Sen wild and crazy. But 1 played it safe. 1 eased up to 
|e stoplight at the pedestrian walk and since it was red, 
Wpped. Some feUow Afterglowers crossed the street, 
Alt there was no one else coming. An evil, dark thought 
lept into my mind. "Go through the light-nobody is 
"No," I said to my thought, "that would be bad." 
ut the thought kept haunting me and finally I could 
X longer resist the temptation. I cautiously eased my 
lot off of the clutch and crept across the walkway. I 
f lought to myself, "Self, you are sly." I had finally 
filled the craving for excitement I had been feeling aU 

rhe officer quickly determin- 
id me to be an RTM (Real 
'trouble Maker) by my suit, 

tie, and shaven face. 

Then my heart sank as I saw some red and blue lights 

start spinning on the top of an oncoming car. "Oh, 

Jeepers," I exclaimed, "I've been caught." I knew I was 

inbig trouble now, having stepped way over the Une of 

Lttte CoUegedale law. The patrol car eagerly pulled up 

"^hind me. I wondered why he left his red and blue Ughts 

1, but suddenly I reaUzed it was for the officer's safe- 

^. You see, CoUegedale is a very violent "city"; hence 

lost people carry a bazooka under the front seat of theu- 

n-. The lights would aid reinforcements in locating the 

|)ubled officer if I per chance puUed out my bazooka 

Jld rendered havoc. All seriousness aside, the officer 

pied up to my window, his lip twitching for action. I 

Idn't disappoint him. He, as aU weU-trained CoUegedale 

'• Officers can, quickly determined me to be an RTM (Real 

">ouble Maker). My suit and tie, shaven face, softly 

jfoying classical music, and lack of beer cans on the 

ioorboard revealed this. I didn't have my license with 

ffiie so we mutually agreed that I should go get it. Upon 

|.Wy return, the ticket was aheady written. "What effi- 

\ eiency," I thought to myself. As the officer read my 

ticket to me, I could teU he was no rookie. Even so, I 

[ misunderstood him to say that my court date was 

I Wednesday, September II, at 11 o'clock. 

L Wednesday morning came and I prepared to go to 

l?ourt. At about 10:20 a.m. a sinister rap came upon my 

^oor. I thought I heard the rapper mumble "Never- 

"Pore." My roommate opened the door behind which 

■Wo dark figures stood. They wore out their welcome 

7 shoving a warrant for my arrest at me and reading 

my rights. I asked why I was being arrested. One of- 
ficer retorted, "Contempt of court." I shook, thinking 
that sounded serious. Upon closer inspection of my 
ticket, I noticed that my court time was 9:00 a.m. and 
not 11:00 a.m. I was clearly guUty. My options were to 
go to jail, pay $25 dollars nonrefundable, or pay $250 
refundable upon my appearance at court on a new date. 
I thought that going to jaU would be kind of neat, hav- 
ing never been before. I started to pack, but the officer 
said I would get new clothes when I got there. My stay, 
I found out, would be for three days. So I began con- 
sidering my other options. Paying the refundable $250 
seemed to be the best choice. 

The officer's assistant escorted me to their car while 
the officer walked 15 feet behind us so he would have 
a good shot if 1 tried to get away. When we reached 
the patrol car, which was overparked in the ten-minute 
zone in front of Wright HaU, I 
tried to get in but was de- 
tained whUe the plexiglass 
divider between the front 
and rear seat was flipped 
up. Did they think I was 
going to beat them 
senseless with my tennis 
shoe or something? I 
wouldn't do that-my 
shoes were new. 

We stopped by the 
Credit Union so that I 
could cash a check. The of- 
ficer's assistant escorted 
me in and just stood there; 
he didn't say anything. In 
fact he never said 

anything. I don't think he 

had yet read his training 

manual,"How To Talk." 

After making the transac- 
tion, we drove to City HaU 

where I was duly process- 
ed. A new clerk was being 

trained, perhaps to handle 

an expected increase in ar- 
rests. I payed my baU and 

waUced back to school. The 

arresting officer went back 

out on the beat. 
My new court day came. 

The court room was fuU as 

it probably always is. One 

of the first cases was iden- 
tical to mine, minus the 

contempt of court charge. 

The judge fined the 

gentleman $10 and court 

cost. After several more 

cases were heard, the judge 

called out, 

"Scott Keminerera." I 

assumed that was me since 

no one else stood up. The 

judge forgot to swear me 

to tell the truth so I 

reminded him and it was 

done. He heard (com...) 

the case and said he would fine me the same as the 
gentleman with the identical violation, "$25 and court 
cost" for the signal violation and $10 plus cost for Con- 
tempt of Court. I humbly informed him that the other 
gentleman was only fmed $10 plus costs. He disagreed 
and the officer backed him up. I gave up and went out 
to pay my fme. At the desk I saw that the other 
gentleman had indeed been fmed only $10 plus cost. I 
showed it to the Chief of PoUce who shrugged his 
shoulders and said that I could appeal it to a higher 
court. What a dandy plan. FinaUy, I went back to see 
the judge and told him the mistake. He lowered my fme, 
and I feU victorious in a world of pseudo-lawfuhiess. 
But the feeUng faded as I realized I was stUI paying $65 
for a ridiculous reason. 

The Andy Griffith Show was canceUed and so Barney 
just faded away. Isn't that a pleasant thought?

City HaU said that Scott Kemmerer was given a 
"br«i" because he wasn't charged with drivmg without 
a Ucense, and I suppose that is true in a smaU sort of 
way. However, in Scott's home state of Virgima, cim- 
tions are issued for non-possession of a Ucense, but the 
law has a "compUed with" clause. In a telephone inter- 
view Sgt T.A.Snead of the Virginia State Pohce said, 
"If you show your Ucense to the officer or to the court, 
there wiU be no fine." In lUinois the law is similar. You 
may not be convicted for driving without a Ucense if you 
are able to show the court that you did have a vaUd 
Ucense at the time of arrest. How neat-in Collegeda^e 
the poUce give breaks for "offenses" that wouldn t be

There's often a natural antagonism between pohce and

harder for them to understand students. I don't know

Dear Editor: 

Recently I read an article by Scott Kemmerer concer- 
ning the CoUegedale Police Department. 

I'm a fonner student of SC. and I remember about 
three years ago there was a simUar incident with the Col- 
legedale PoUce, but this was concerning a "hard-core 
criminal" mopedist who was riding around CoUegedale 
without a helmet. Like Scott, he was a "no show" to 
court. He, too, was taken down to the station. As I 
remember, there was a lot of taUc around campus about 
how ridiculous the whole thing was and what a joke the 
CoUegedale PoUce Department was. I can even 
remember saying and thinking that myself. My thoughts 
didn't change much untU this past summer when I began 
training as a reserve dispatcher. 

Even though clean-cut Scott wouldn't hurt an officer, 
who is to say that the next person pulled over in a suit 
and tie, with a shaven face and softly playing classical 
music wouldn't puU out a .44 Magnum, making the of- 
ficer another statistic. Although CoUegedale isn't a 
violent city, it's not exempt from burglaries, shootings, 
or any other criminal acts. The officers take theu- job 
seriously, and shouldn't they? Unlike a TV show where 
a mistake can be retaped and cortected, Ufe is for real 
without a second chance! 

I think Scott came down pretty hard on the Col- 
legedale Police Department. Is it possible Scott is just 
sore and stiU "Ucking his wounds" from the whole in- 
cident? Maybe he should have taken the ticket a little 
more seriously and given it a second look. The poUce 
did give him some breaks. The officers didn't have to 
let him go back to the dorm for his Ucense. They didn't 
have to stop at the Credit Union for him. And the judge 
didn't have to lower his fine. They're not mean people 
out to get some college student, but they do have prin- 
ciples to uphold and foUow. 

Maybe if the students and faculty of SC c 
Tri-Community workers the respect and coom 
they deserve, the students and faculty might rJ 
these people aren't the bad guys but are actua^

SOUTHERN ACCENT of October 10, 
Kemmerer, regarding his recent brush with tlJ

that Mr. Kemmerer did not have his driver's linl

have been within his rights to have also chargeil

The arresting officer was certainly not obUgatiT 
Mr. Kemmerer any of these breaks, and we«|

dation was that the prime requirement for their new 
leader be friendliness-of course, everyone knew that no 
one was more friendly in the forest than Randy, especial- 
ly when he wanted something from someone. 

Then there were the chipmunks who thought that 
organization was the most important quality of leader- 
ship needed in Fenton Forest. There had been a great 
growth of paperwork in the forest recently, and a can- 
didate with organizational abilities was certainly 

The owls thought that the new leader must most of 
all be smart. The new leader could not hold the respect 
of everyone unless he was truly smart. It would be best 
if he had attended a famous university like Bigtree Tech 
and received his Ph.F. (that is, a Philosophy of Forests 
degree). Then he could hold everyone's respect. 

The skunks met and decided that someone was need- 
ed who could relate to the little fellows, someone who 
could be on their level and who had a nose for trouble. 

The foxes felt that this new leader should most of all 
be good at speaking and traveling so he could boost the 
image of the forest. Of course, no one could do that like 
a foxey fox, and who could speak more eloquently than 

The older forest inhabitants felt a need to have a well- 

ing employees "nearly half was student labor.. .and 
that's the way we want it." 

Staff travel, non-food supplies like trays and silver- 
ware, overhead (computer services for checkout, bad 
debts, taxes, equipment repair, utilities like phone and 
laundry), plant maintenance (custodial work, electrici- 
ty, natural gas, building repairs), depreciation (wear and 
tear on the building itself, paying the building off), and 
minimal administrative charges were expenses as well. 

In cold, hard figures and percentages, the expected 
profit was blown away by expenses in operating the 
cafeteria: gross profit was 55.5% of total sales and ex- 
penses were 56.5% of total sales, leaving an approximate 
one-percent deficit (i.e., about $15,000 dollars). In 
essence, the money made by the cafeteria was not enough 
to cover the costs of its operation. 

experienced leader, and the younger forest inhabitants 
wanted to have someone who could relate to them. 

The committee received all of the suggestions and 
made the following report to the Fenton Forest Coun- 
cil. They would send out the following advertisement 
to other forest communities: 


Very large, strong applicant to lead Fenton Forest who 
relates well to the small folks. 

This applicant should be able to fly, swim, and 
walk-preferably all at the same time. . 

The applicant should have brilliance and hold a Ph.F. 
degree and be well versed in common country forest 

The applicant should be young, with 20-30 years of 

The applicant should be able to make tough decisions 
while being liked by everyone. 

The applicant should include a photograph with the 
application; he or she must have a pleasing appearance 
for PR purposes. It would be preferable if he or she 
looked like a fox, bear, chipmunk, and eagle. 

If you are or know of such a leader, please send your 
application to:

Earl Evans, Southern College Food Service Director, 
said that one reason food prices were up was the "hard 
freeze experienced by the South, which accounts for the 
rise in food prices." Rising costs of electricity, sewage 
disposal, and transportation pushed the cost up as well. 
Mr. Evans also said that, due to last year's lower enroll- 
ment, the cafeteria had to buy food in smaller, more ex- 
pensive quantities. Finally, the cost of replacing damaged 
and stolen property drove prices up even further. 

"Last year alone," said Evans, "ten thousand dollars 
was spent to replace damaged and stolen property." 
Evans said that students who took cutlery, trays, plates, 
and glasses, and ate food without paying for it drove 
costs up. 

This year the projected gross income for the cafeteria 
is $1.36 million. With projected expense for this year 
set at 55% of total sales, Mr. Spears predicts that 
the cafeteria will be 0.4% in the black-with $6000 in 
net profit. 

Why the apparent gain 
after last year's loss? 
Spears says that the 
cafeteria is trying to 
balance "cost centers." Its 
object is not to make pro- 
fit for the sake of profit, he 
mdicated. If the cafeteria is 
not making enough money. 
Spears says that the money 
will have to come from 
somewhere else, like dorm 
rent or tuition. "Balance is 
the key," he says. 

Because of a 4% raise in 
labor costs this year 
($225,000 is the projected 
cost of student labor), and 
the rise in food prices, the 
cafeteria needs to "keep 
food prices where they pay

Three teenage females were reported missmg Monday. 
Oct 21, from their CoUegedale homes. The missmg 
teenagers, Tabitha Sommer, daughter of Mr^ and Mrs. 
Csommer, and MeUssa and BiUie McComas, 
daughters of Mr. and Mrs. William McComas, had ap- 
parently run away from home. The three teens, students 
at Georgia Cumberland Academy, were on home leave 
when they ran away. 

"It is believed that aU three chUdren are traveUing 
together, possibly en route to North Carolina or 
Florida,"CoUegedale Police Lieutenant Denms Cramer 
said Cramer said that he understood the three children 
are with another unnamed juvenile female from 
Calhoun. Ga. who has also run away. 
The parents of both the McComas and Sommer 
children, according to Cramer, were advised by Col- 
legedale PoUce Department to obtain attachments (peti- 
tions) from the Hamilton County Juvenile Court. Peti- 
tions have been issued, aUowing poUce to pick up the 

The subjects' names have also been entered m the Na- 
tional Crime Information Center (NCIC) computer. "If 
they are stopped and their names are checked by a poUce 
departmem anywhere in the United States," said 

Cramer "they will be shown as runaways and will 
be taken imo custody by that police depa.tment." 
Lt Cramer said that Mrs. Sommer had found a 
note in her daughter's purse written from the 
Calhoun juvenile to her daughter. Telephone 
numbers were written on it registered to the 
Calhoun juvenile's mother, who is living in North 
Carolina. Apparently, the two had been planning 
to run away for some time. Cramer said that the 
local authorities and the mother have been notified. 
Lt. Cramer's description of the subjects follows. 

MeUssa McComas (goes by Missy) is a 16-year- f^g^McComas age 16 
old white female with medium-length brown hair, ^^^^^^^^m^^k 
blue eyes, and a scar across the bridge of her nose.

birth is 4/2/69. 

Billie McComas (goes by B.J.) is a 15-year-old 
white female, 5' 4" tall, weighs 94 lbs., and has 
small moles on her face, braces on her teeth, and 
a scar on her right shin. Her date of birth is 6/17/70.

My Turn /Scott Kinse y 

October 24, 1985/SOUTHERN ACCENT/5 

Don't Leave Home 
Without It 

The other day I got up early to swim. As a major con- 
tender for first place in the Happy Valley Tinman 
Triathlon, I felt it my solemn duty to swim one or two 
laps in preparation. I arrived as the Ufeguard skimmed 
the last bits of ice from the pool. What a relief! I hate 
obstacles! As required, I stuck my ID card into a metal 
clip on the wallboard and jumped in. Already several 
swimmers stirred the water, so I knew it wouldn't 
refreeze directly. Two laps later, completely exhausted, 
1 stumbled to the card board for my ID. With chlorine 
blurring my vision, I selected what appeared to be my 
picture and fled to the cafeteria. 

Warm, wonderful odors met me as I entered. Piling 
my tray high with various goodies, I proceeded through 
line. Surprised, the checker said, "This don't look Uke 
you: I ain't never seen you in pigtails." I looked at the 
ID card and realized I had taken Agnes Poppover's card 
by mistake. 

Hurrying to Thatcher Hall, I returned Agnes' card 
with much explaining, then raced to the gym. I found 
that my card was on its way to the men's dorm via a 
friend. With a sigh of reUef , I found the card in my box, 
accompanied by a letter from the Office of Student 
Finance and Bounced ID Cards. The note stated that 
I, student ICU31-MT,was $731.42 over my projected 
budget for September. 

Not having an eight o'clock class, I stopped by Wright 
Hall to check out the situation. After some sleuthing, 
a lady informed me that it was a simple mistake. My 
account was charged for a Committee of 100 banquet 
by accident. Assuring me that the numbers would be 
juggled immediately, she said, "Fear not to use thy 

Later at the CK I handed my key ring to the girl at 
the register, but she promptly gave it back, telling me 
to take the junk off. Now there wasn't that much on 
the ring, just my 37 keys, a Mickey Mouse pocket 
toothbrush, a portable yardstick, a Barney Fife badge, 
a stapler, a comb, my Dick Tracy decoder watch, and 
my ID. Fortunately, I had room in my knapsack, since 
she obviously didn't think the stuff belonged on my ID 

That afternoon I needed my card to play racketball. 
(That's in case the deskworker wants a bite to eat while 
you're busy.) 1 looked all over my room, but no card. 
Since it wasn't attached to my paraphernalia, I didn't 
recognize it. 

Assuming the worst, I rushed up to the Computer 
Center, makers of these little plastic demons. They said 
not to worry, that the card was probably being held 
hostage in the dishroom of the cafe, and would be releas- 
ed at the next meal. I walked out mumbling the story 
of the man without a country. 

Retracing my steps, I finally located the elusive card 
at the Talge Hall desk . I had checked out a Better Homes 
and Gardens, then forgotten to pick up my card. Reliev- 
ed at being back in the numbered world, I discovered 
I had just enough time to make it to supper. 

An unusually large crowd had gathered for this gala 
event, with only one checker operating. With the masses 
behind me in line, I presented my card to charge my 
meal. "Sorry, sir, you've been deactivated." "What!" 
I screamed. "This is too much!" The masses urged 
haste, so I scanned the seated crowd for a familiar face. 
Bumming a meal of f of a now ex-friend, I chose a table 
in the back. 

My troubles were not over yet. In the library that night 
I tried to check out a Snoopy coloring book. The 
deskworker pulled out a gun and said I was on the ten- 
most-wanted list for overdue books. As I looked down 
the barrel of his squirt gun, he told me I had had 17 
books overdue during the last six years. The fine was 
$392.05, payable immediately. Great! Asking him to 
lower the weapon, I helped him locate the mistake, and 
went to find a carrel to color at.

Finally, the libary closed, the day seemed to be end- 
ed, and I thought I was in the clear. As I drifted off to 
sleep in my room, I took comfort in the thought that 
my card could not embarrass or victimize me any more 
that day. Then, with a shudder, I remembered that I had 
left it in the SDA room when checking out a typewriter. 
What a tragedy— no swimming in the morning! Maybe 
ID cards are good for something.

Southern Saves on Surplus Supplies 

By Tom Glander 

Southern CoUege received $1,910 in supplies October 
3 from the National Association for the Exchange of In- 
dustrial Resources (NAEIR), which is located in 
Chicago, Illinois. 

According to Jann Gentry, Development Office Assis- 
tant, the Teaching Learning Center received $240 in Cor- 
rection Tabs and $50 worth of Pocket FUes. Grounds 
Department obtained files valued at $400 and saw tables 
and guides worth $140. Natural Sciences received $1,080 


in Soil Test Kits. 

Mrs. Gentry says that NAEIR is a non-profit 
organization which invites donations from companies 
having surplus merchandise. NAEIR sends a catalog to 
Southern College each quarter which is made available 
to faculty and staff to request available merchandise. 

According to Mrs. Gentry, Southern College became 
a member of NAEIR in January 1985. Membership dues 
have paid for themselves ten times over.

Lee Ford, owner of "Memories," a specialty shop, 
sits behind a counter in the back room of her small shop. 
As she talks, her eyes move around the walls which are 
covered with a variety of dried flower arrangements, 
wreaths, and baskets of silk blossoms. 

"I enjoy what I do," she says. "Especially the positive 
feedback I get from people." She is speaking of her work 
with flower arranging and other artistic endeavors which 
include home decorating, color coordination, and wed- 
ding planning. 

One of Ms. Ford's latest projects affects Sigma Theta 
Chi, the women's club at SC. Working together with 
Sigma Theta Chi's President Susan Parker, Ms. Ford 
developed an idea unofficially termed "Birthday of the 

Each month Ms. Ford creates a flower arrangement 
which in theme and colors celebrates the season and/or 


holidays of the ciurent month. This arrangement is plac- 
ed in the women's residence lobby along with a plaque 
bearing the name of the month and a dedication to those 
bom in it. Sigma Theta Chi sends cards to each girl with 
a birthday in the current month, and the theme of the 
flower arrangement is coordinated with that of the card. 

Lee Ford is not paid for the arrangement she creates 
for the dorm, but she says the appreciation she receives 
for her work makes it worthwhile. 

"What I do for Sigma Theta Chi is more than just 
advertising for my shop," she says. "It's a way of show- 
ing the dorm students that the community cares." 

Ford's shop is located in the Mini-Mall and specializes 
m weddings, home fashions, and what she calls "non- 
essential necessities"~potpourri, lace, ribbons, and 

"I enjoy making people happy with pretty things," 
she says. "1 hope the girls enjoy it as much as I do."

Happy Halloween! 

During the course of The Adventures 
^ of Huckleberry Finn, as Jim the slave 
and Huck float down the Mississippi, 
their discussion turns to the unique way 
Frenchmen speak. On hearing that they 
.ay things like "PoUy-voo-franzy, 
Jim exclaims, "Well, it's a blame 
redicklous way, en 1 doan want to hear 
no mo' 'bout it." There is no chang- 
ing his mind. He will not entertain the 
idea that a man might speak a language 
other than his own. You may chuckle 
at Jim, but many people dismiss 
Chamber Series programs the same 
way, without a solitary imaginative 
thought. -,„„« 

Do you think that the $5000 
allocated to Chamber Series is 
justified? What is it good for? I think 
it presents some valuable opportunities. 
By prejudice or plain inattention, 
many opportunities to feed one's 
curiosity may be lost. A month ago I 
heard of a group scheduled to perform 
Medieval and Renaissance music on 
such instruments as vieles, lutes, bom- 
bards and crumhorns. When I went to 
see the four Frenchmen in mauve 
smocks and bushy medieval hair-do's, 
and hear the crisp, strident voices of 
their music blending and weaving in 
those 500-year-old songs, my in- 
quisitiveness was well gratified. Don't 
deprive yourself of any chances to dab- 
ble in a variety of experiences. 

Aside from novelty, diverse styles of 
music may also be instruments of lear- 
ning. The language of old music has 
not died like Latin. It is still "spoken" 
by educated people, whose ranks we 

might wish to join one day. The 
Renaissance music of "La Maurache 
provided insight imo a past age which 
though long gone, was concerned with 
human experiences similar to ours^ 
Sometimes such learning is rej^'^dj-^ 
the uneducated. That is a shame. They 
miss the opportunity to broaden their 

By broadening experience 1 mean ex- 
panding the use of a person's imagina- 
tion, creativity and emotion. These are 
useful tools to bring unknown quaii- 
tities like Medieval music mto one s 
understanding. Moved by the spright- 
ly tunes I heard, my imaginauon whisk- 
ed me back to Shakespeare's age of 
swirUng court dances, plucked lutes, 
and red and green pointed shoes warm- 
ed by a roaring fire. The atmosphere 
tempted me to laugh and dance about. 
I participated in vicarious experience 
the way a reader is drawn relentlessly 
into a novel's plot. You will be pleas- 
ed with the results of a widening 

If you know you won't like a musical 
program before it happens, ask 
yourself whether you haven't dismiss- 
ed it too quickly. Henry Ford told his 
biographer, "Habit conduces to a cer- 
tain inertia, and any disturbance of it 
affects the mind like trouble." That is 
a high-falutin' way of saying that if 
top-forty music is your habit, and you 
think Moorish lutes and old French 
songs can't help your future, you may 
be missing some of the parts of full, 
satisfying consciousness.

I^obel Laureate to Speak at SC 

Rosalyn Yalow, a scientist who has been called 
kadame Curie from the Bronx," will be lecturing 
louthern College of Seventh-day Adventists on 
Imber 4 and 5 as the first speaker in the new Presi- 
Fs Lecture Series. 

tinner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1977, Dr. 

|w will speak at 8 p.m. on Monday evening on the 

'Radioactivity in Service to Humanity." The 

lentation, open to the public, will be in Ackerman 

litorium in Mabel Wood Hall. 

i a physicist, Dr. Yalow moved in 1947 from the 

ling of physics to the field of nuclear medicine. For 

than 35 years, she has been with the Bronx 

tans Administration Medical Center, where she is 

kenior medical investigator. Working with the late 

iolomon Berson, she discovered radioimmunoassay 

I), a way in which the concentrations of virtually 

Substance in the fluids and tissues of the body can 

Beasured. The measuring of the body's own cir- 

ng insuUn, for example, is said to be like identify- 

Iteaspoon of sugar in a lake 62 miles long, 62 miles 

j and 30 feet deep. 

[the age of 8, Rosalyn Sussman Yalow was dream- 
f becoming a working scientist, along with marry- 
Ind having children. She graduated from Hunter 
Ige in New York City with physics and chemistry 
Irs when she was 19. On her first day of graduate 
Bol at the University of Illinois, she met Aaron 
Iw, son of a Syracuse rabbi and now a physics pro- 
jr. They married in June 1943, and have a son and 

Universities have awarded Dr. Yalow 37 honorary 
doctorates. In 1984 Tel Aviv University granted her a 
doctorate, and even more recently the University of 
Ghent (Belgium), Columbia University, and the Univer- 
sity of the State of New York have added to her laurels. 
Honors also include membership in the National 
Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of 
Arts and Sciences. She is a foreign associate of the 
French Academy of Medicine. 

The President's Lecture Series was established at 
Southern College this year. Chaim Potok, noted author 
of The Chosen, will conclude the series when he speaks 
on the Southern College campus March 19 and 20. The 
Chosen, published in 1967, was the first of five best- 
sellers in which Potok explores the conflicts of the 
religiously committed individual in a secular society. 

"We have several goals for the President's Lecture 
Series, which was made possible by the kindness of a 
donor," said Dr. William Allen, vice president for 
academic administration. "One is to highlight academic 
excellence by featuring individuals who are achievers, 
individuals who can serve as role models for our 
students. Another is to provide mind stretching for the 
community around us." 

Honor students at Southern College will be invited to 
share a special time of interaction with guest speakers 
for the President's Lecture Series. "The opportunity to 
meet and talk with these distinguished but down-to-earth 
speakers may be the catalyst in helping our students 
realize that they, too, can achieve great things," said Dr.

C.A.R.E. Activities: 
Constant Care Prayer 

By Tag Garmon 

The latest C.A.R.E. program. Constant Care Prayer, 
is a new idea designed to change the atmosphere on cam- 
pus by pulling the faculty and students together in 
prayer. This program was developed after several 
students, upon returning from the recent Bible Con- 
ference at Yorktown Bay, realized afresh the power of 
prayer and wanted to enlist its strength in a greater way 
here on campus. 

Every day on the hour, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., one 
student and one faculty member come together in the 
prayer room in the student center and pray specifically 
for the student body, school administration, personal 
needs, and specific prayer requests. The pair may stay 
and pray as long as they like. 

There will be a sheet of paper posted in the prayer 
room so that anyone, whether involved with the program 
or not, can stop by and write down any burdens he or 
she feels need special attention concerning the school 
program, personal struggles, or individual needs. With 
full participation, there will be someone praying every 
hour during the day. 

C.A.R.E. hopes the faculty will join with the student 
body on their knees, seeking God's strength and presence 
for Southern College in a unified way. 

Sign-up sheets have been posted on the C.A.R.E. of- 
fice door. Call Campus Ministries (238-2557) for more 
information on how to schedule your prayer time. 

Gearing Up for 
Pledge Week 

By Tom Glander 

FM 90.5's Classic Celebration begins November 3. 
Employees at the radio station have been working for 
two months in preparation for the week of fund rais- 
ing. According to Development Director Gerald Peel, 
the station needs $35,000 from its listeners to meet its 
budget for the upcoming year. And to raise the money, 
public awareness must be heightened. 

Program Director Mark Stephens adds, "We will try 
to keep interruptions to a minimum. But at the same 
time we realize that activities of the station at this time 
of the year are necessary. We must have a pledge week. 
And it rolls around just as sure as Christmas and 

The station hopes to raise the money in one week,

The Great Blob That Didn't Eat Collegedale 

~ J By Gordon Bietz . ,., 

Once upon a time there was a huge blob. It was a ht- 
tle white, a UtUe grey, and a Uttle black. It was amor- 
phous and shapeless. It was a blob. No one knew where 
it came from, but it was certainly there right on the cam- 
pus. It seemed to be a very harmless blob. It never ap- 
^ed to hurt anyone. This blob was not at al like the 
blTb that ate New York. It wasn't Uke those blobs you 
see in science fiction movies that devour people and 
cities. This blob just kind of sat there and grew. It did 

At first it didn't grow very fast because everyone was 
afraid of it, and they kept cutting it back to size so it 
hardly grew at aU. But as students got used to having 
it around, they would ignore it, and when ignored, it 
seemed to get larger. It grew the fastest when people ig- 
nored it the most. "What could it hurt?" students said 
to each other as the blob grew and grew. 

The blob had a strange effect on people who ran into 
it It seemed to anesthetize their brains-not that they 
couldn't think anymore but that they didn't want to 
think anymore. There were some students who just 

.niovedresting on the blob and day dreaming about what 
ESrbeikeand what grades theymight get If they 

Sd themselves. Those who spent --h tmienear 
ufe blob could not be motivated to do much of anythmg. 
in fact they often said that they just felt like a blob. 
The blob affected people like carbon monoxide poison- 
ing. People hardly noticed its effect until it was too late 

'°The blob seemed to always be in the student's path 
when he wanted to walk somewhere. So it was named 
APATHY Students affected by APATHY were in- 
sensitive to passion or feeling. They didn't care much 
aboil^anyth^g. Has A PATH /struck the SC campus? 
The answer you give depends on the subject you are 
discussing. I would suggest that the average coUege stu- 
dent does not lack passion or emotion (he has not been 
anesthetized by APATHY) until the activity is moved 
from the basketbaU court to the worship room, or until 
the discussion is moved from girlfriend to God is my 
Friend, until the subject is changed from the song "We 
Are the World" to "This World Is Not My Home. " 
Why is it that more excitement is generated at 

Amway meetings than church meetings, and enthu ' i 
for baseball seems to easily outshine interest in chuwl 
It seems that religion, as we have experienced it anj 
we practice it, doesn't seem to matter. It evokes! J 
passion and a great deal of apathy. There are s 
things that seem more important to us than s 

How can religious issues be made more signifiui 
Maybe our Christianity has become too familiar and J 
lost its surprise. The basketball game has suspense I 
we don't know who will win, but in the church we] 
the same old stuff-the same team always wins, a 
advice is nineteenth century advice. What J 
frequentlyget from the message is "Don't enjoy li 
"All the things that turn you on are bad for you.'l 
is rather like the diet that goes, "If it tastes goodj 
it out." Our religious life experience becomes, "If ii(| 
good, don't do it." 

Can we destroy the blob A PATH Yl Can welJ 
a Christianity that makes a difference-that resulij 
some passion? Will the blob get you?

I Just Felt the Need to Say... 

By Charlene Spencer 

I dialed her number for the fifth time. Still not therel 
My frustration was growing. I had received good news 
from home and was dying to tell someone-well, not just 
anyone, but Josie. She is my buddy, and it would not 
be as satisfying to share it with anyone else. 

Most pf us know what it's like to share in a friend- 
ship. Good friends are pillars of support and are the peo- 
ple we whisper our secrets to. They are around when it 
seems like the rest of the world has gone away. Life 
would be worthless without friends. 

There are people around us who are less fortunate 
than most. For varied reasons, they have slipped the at- 
tention of some potentially caring eye and are left 

The Long and the Shorts of It 

I stood in the cafeteria line and viewed the girl ahead 
5f me with some distaste. True to current fashion trend, 
he was clad in black leotard-like pants with little loops 
hat went around her feet, bright red plastic shoes, and 
i man's T-shirt proclaiming "I'm a Bad Girl" in fluores- 
lent pink letters. In a spirit not unlike that of the 
Bharisee who prayed, "Lord, I thank you that I am not 
Eke this man," I mentally contrasted her attire with 
nine: a yellow oxford cloth button-down shirt, wool 
vest, rust-colored silk tie and matching knee socks, pen- 
ny loafers, and forest-green corduroy culotte shorts with 
teatly pressed cuffs. 
The line moved forward. As "Bad Girl" passed 
trough the door to the serving area she received a plea- 
■ ■ sant smile and greeting from Mrs. "Cafeteria Lady." 
1, too, smiled at the nice lady. But I received a sad frown 
_and the words, "Oh, dear, I'm not supposed to let you 
I here with shorts!" 
[At this point let me clarify that I had exactly SVt" 

L showing on each leg. 

iThe SC Handbook, to which I referred immediately 

Iter the incident, takes the following position: "Because 

pinions regarding appropriate dress vary widely with 

he, place, style and people, the SC faculty and ad- 

^nistration feel that you will be able to meet the stan- 

irds for appropriate appearance at Southern College 

Ith the least confusion if controversial areas are dealt 

|th in specifics rather than in principle. The principles 

f neatness, modesty, cleanUness and appropriateness 

^e inherent in all regulations concerning dress." The 

ferticle goes on to ban, among other things, tight-fitting 

' 'and revealing clothes, overalls, common T-shirts, torn 

"and frayed clothing, and shorts on campus. 

As "Bad Girl" passed 
through the door she 
Received a smile from 
le hostess. 

I don't think that this stand prevents confusion at all. 
hink it's ineffective. Furthermore, I think it's lazy. 
|To demononstrate this, let me refer to my illustration. 
fould a thinking, logical college administrator, or any 
pher honest person, claim that the attire of "Bad Girl" 
gas "neat, modest, and appropriate"? Of course not! 
gut the handbook does not specifically condemn a single 
■pece of her attire. 

JNow, which of the principles (neatness, modesty, 

^3eanliness, and appropriateness) did my outfit violate? 

I 't was color coordinated. It was washed and pressed. 

The shorts were longer than some skirts that are worn 

^ classes on this campus. Would that same thmking per- 

IgC^^^" (condemn my outfit on principle? No! Here we have 

the ineffectiveness clearly defined: an outfit which is not 
in accordance with principle is allowed to slip through 
the sieve of specifics, while an outfit which is in accor- 
dance with principle gets hung up on a legaUstic snag. 

How can this dilemna be solved? What alternatives 
can we present to our well-meaning administrators? 
First, we could do away with the specific rules and try 
to govern by principle alone. Unfortunately, I do not 
believe that most of our faculty have the guts to say, 
"Your attire does not comply with our principles at this 
institution"-backed, of course, with a reasonable ex- 
planation of the principles, and which one the offending 
clothing violates. This is where the aspect of laziness 
comes in. It is far easier to say, "The handbook says 
'no shorts,' so go change" than it is to say, "These 
shorts, which nearly touch the kneecap, are loose-fitting, 
made of nice material, and worn with a modest outift 
are acceptable, but those shorts, which are satin, skin- 
tight, slit to the hipbone, and show a hefty portion of 
buttock, are unacceptable." 

Not many teachers and administrators want to either 
take responsibiUty for that kind of judgment or be ac- 
countable for defenses of their decisions. So perhaps in 
order to actually avoid confusion and put principle first, 
we should compose a more extensive and comprehen- 
sive Ust of dress standards which would cover every 
possible situation. It could read something like this: 
"Shorts may be worn if they are made of cotton, linen, 
or wool, if they do not gUtter or shine, if they are loose 
enough to fit a person 20% heavier than the person wear- 
ing them, if they come within 5% of the total length of 
the leg from the knee, if..." 

Obviously, I think that we should adopt the first sug- 
gestion. Our teachers and administrators are being paid 
to form our characters; let them actually do some think- 
ing about the rules they make and the judgments they 
pass on us. 

Unfortunately, I think it more likely that of the two 
suggestions the second will meet with approval. If it 
does I'm heading for town to buy a fluorescent shirt 
and some lace hose. I want that nice lady at the 
cafeteria to smile at me, too. 

Little Debbie 

without a real companion. They don't have a special 
someone to share with or someone to inquire about their 
day and stop long enough to talk about it. They have 
no one to celebrate with when they ' 'C"-ed that Survey 
of Civ. exam, no one to give positive reinforcement with 
a "Hey, you're really not so bad." 

These people are the ones who hurt, retiring nightly 
to their rooms with aching voids and lonely spirits, and 
long to relieve their anxieties. Would it be possible for 
each of us to reach out and touch a heart? Make 
somebody's day brighter. Be a friend to someone in 
need. We can make our campus a place where no one 
has to hurt for love.

Sports Proffle: Dr. Bob Kamieneski 

i^ By Kent Boyle 

Sometimes you might see him running early m the 
morning as the rest of the world Ues in slumber. But you 
would have to get up pretty early to catch the dedicated 
Bob Kamieneski. 

"Dr. K," as many call him, is a mild-maimered, easy- 
going guy. Some people know him as chairman of the 
Physical Education department. Others know him as the 
man zooming around in the white Porsche. StiU others 
know him as a teacher who doesn't mind talking one- 
on-one. All these things characterize Dr. K, but there 
is something that most people don't realize when they 
think of him. 

Dr. K is a talented distance runner who competes in 
most of the runs in the area that aren't held on Sabbaths. 
He holds a lot of responsibility in the P.E. department, 
but still finds time to run. Though most competitive run- 
ners have more time to train, he still does very well in 
most of the local races in which he competes. 

In the Cross Country Athletic Attic 10-K, which is 
located right here in CoUegedale, he has won first place 
in his age division two years in a row. Most recently, 
he won first place in his age division at the Signal Moun- 
tain Road Race. He averages about 35 minutes in a ten- 
kilometer race, something most rumiers dream of do- 

ing, but never accomplish. 

He has also run a half dozen marathons. He recalls 
that his greatest thrill as a runner was runnmg the Boston 
Marathon for the first time. Since then, he has run it 
two more times. 

Dr K grew up North of Boston. He started runnmg 
in high school on the cross country team. As he finished 
high school he left running behind, in a competitive 
sense, for a while. He didn't start again until he was 
working on his Master's degree in Recreation. He wem 
on in his graduate studies, getting his Ed.D. in Exercise 
Physiology and Cardiac Rehabilitation. 

Dr. Kamieneski has a very balanced outlook on life 
and his running. He does not just run for competition, 
but is very concerned about his health and keeping fit. 
He obviously enjoys running very much, but does not 
recommend it for everyone. He believes that everyone 
should find an exercise they enjoy and stick with it. Dr. 
K believes in the balanced man who is in touch with his 
Creator and mentally and physically fit. He doesn't hide 
this, and is willing to talk about it to a listening ear. 

Those who might need some advice or just want to 
talk would be wise to absorb some knowledge from our 
own Dr. K, for he is not just a competitive runner, but 
also a dedicated physical educator.

Green 26, Wills 6 

Green's team shone with their

Gibbons scoring 12, and Jeanne 
Dickinson scoring 6. Both teams have 
played very well this season, although 
this game was uncharacteristic for 
Wills, Tracy Wills threw a touchdown 
to Rhonda Facundus for their six 
points total. Wills said, "Green's team 
played well, but we weren't playing at 
our potential." 

Green 13, HUderbrandt 9 

The first two points were given to 
HUderbrandt by Green because of an 
incomplete pass attempt out of HUder- 
brandt's end zone (a safety). Scoring 
for Hilderbrandt's team were Paulette 
Higgins and Terri Adams. Terri 'J^^ 
Adams played quarterback for this 
game. Green's team had Rhonda 
Huegert as quarterback. She threw one 
touchdown each to Gail Gibbons and 
Angela Holly and an extra point to 
DyerRonda Green, the team captain. 

Wills 1, HUderbrandt 

HUderbrandt had to forfeit because 
they didn't have enough players show 
up. There was a game for fun headed 
by Bob Rodgers and Jorey Parkhurst.

The stockings were hung on the store 
fronts with care. 

In hope that more customers soon 
would be there. 

Everyone should have a kid on Thanksgiving. A kid 
to be thankful for, one to draw on the refrigerator, and 
one that won't wonder what you "really" mean when 
you say, "I love you." 1 just got a poster from the Ten- 
nessee Department of Health and Environment that 
features chUdren's CTayon drawings. Their idea is to pro- 
mote and celebrate healthy, happy children. Maybe the 
poster is for people who don't have their own six-year- 
old. Oh,weU, our idea should be to promote happiness 
in the people around us, too. 

It's time to get in the spirit. The stockings have been 
hung in the stores, so we really should get around to put- 
ting them in our friend's hearts. Sit back and take time 
to examine your emotional tank. Are you full up? Your 
friends aren't likely to be, either. 

As I write this, there are 49 days tiU Christmas. Dur- 
ing that time we celebrate Christianity and capitalism, 
giving and getting, the manager and money. The 
economy booms, and the suicide rate jumps. It's a 
season of emotional depletion and colored lights. 

I'm thankful for my parents who make it possible for 
me to be here. I appreciate my staff who make it possi- 
ble to produce this paper, and for people who've told 
me they enjoy reading the Accent. They make it 
worthwhile. Don't think that one of your friends 
wouldn't like an "I really appreciate you." No one ever 
ignored genuine thanks. There's not that much apathy

Value of College Degree Is CUmbing 

WASHINGTON. D.C. (CPS) - CoUege degrees are 
worth more to male students now than at any Ume since 
7il^. the authors of a new U.S. Census Bureau 

''"^e Mudy, by analysts in the bureau's Department for 
Demographic Studies, says that, as of 1983. male col- 
lege graduates could expect to earn 39 percent more than 
men who quit school after high school. 

Male coUege students' economic edge over high school 
grads declined during the 1970s. In 1969. male college 
grads made 28 percent more than high school grads. In 
1979. the difference was 21 percent. 

By 1981, the decUne had been reversed. The economic 
edge was 34 percent that year. 

The study does not include figures for female c'DUege 

The bureau's analysts attribute the dechne and subse- 
quent increase in the value of a degree to the entrance 
and passage of the "Baby Boom" generation through 

The larger the college graduating class, the less 
valuable a college degree is in the market place.

A Worsening Nursing Shortage 

By Heide Ford 

"Hello. This is Erlanger calling. We have 30 open- 
ings for nurses. Could you please share our need with 
your students?" 

"Hello. I'm calling from Savannah. Georgia. We have 
quite a few openings in our hospital for nurses. Do you 
have any nurses that would be interested?" 

"Hello. This is Parkridge. There are 1 1 openings for 
nurses here. Let them know we're looking to hire." 

"HeUo. I'm calling from Hyde Park Hospital in 
Chicago. We have 22 openings for nurses. We hope some 
of your nurses will be interested in relocating here " 

Within just a two- to three-week period. Catherine 
Knarr. Du^ector of the Division of Nursing, received 
these urgem calls. Has a need for nurses suddenly arisen 
m just the last few months? Is there a new nursing shor- 
tage coming? 

According to Beverly Brewer, presidem of the Na- 
tional Association of Health Care Recruiters, a nursing 
shortage is coming that is worse than any in the past 

the June 1985 issue of RN magazine. "Why the upturn 

in the job market when the overall hospital 
dropping? Beverly Brewer says it's nothing but 
of supply and demand~the supply shrinking as 
close and enrollments decline, demand rising 
prohferation of home health agencies, ambulatoil| 
centers, and the like." 

The recruiters see some changes ahead-coulo 
right? A local hospital PR director stated, "m 
weeks ago I carefully screened every R.N. thaty 
now I'm taking any one that comes through the 
Hospitals which have never before recruited ono J 
pus are recruiting now. "The southern regio^ 
United States does have a nursing shortage. 
Knarr, "including Adventist Health System/^ 

Though it is true that there is still an excess" 
in some parts of the country, Winton Beaven, 
of Kettering Medical Arts Center, told Kn*7'^| 
our country will be in the most critical nursing 
it has ever faced."

Jie Sigma Theta Chi reception held at 
Irhattanooga Convention and Trade 
Iter Sunday night, November 3. 
Recording to Susan Parker, Sigma Theta 

bresident and coordinator of the even- 
about 200 couples attended the 

[lies' choice" banquet. 

Iijs banquet, which was touted by 

L xijeta Civ publicity posters as be- 
[he "once-in-a-long-time" chance for 
at evening, proved to be just that, ac- 

^g to many who attended. The $25-a- 

lle evening boasted atmosphere, food, 

Jentertainment-and delivered in a 

Hty of ways. 

Buples were seated at tables for eight 
Ks John Doss room of the Convention 
mter. The room was decorated in con- 

temporary style, with a warmly-hued rose- 
colored carpet, mirrored ceiling, and sub- 
dued lighting. A stage with a silhouette 
backdrop of the city of Chicago, which 
dominated the room, was flanked by two 
buffet tables. 

The meal, which was catered by the Con- 
vention Center and coordinated by Roy 
Lewis, a Convention Center employee, was 
served buffet style. Cream of broccoli 
soup, an extensive salad bar offering such 
items as fresh spinach, cheese, and olives, 
and fruit platter complete with honeydew 
melon and strawberries were appetizers 
which began the meal. The main course 
was vegetable pasta in cream sauce 
ratatouille, and french fried mushrooms. 
The meal was brought to a "sweet" con- 
clusion with a choice of five different

desserts ranging from key lime pie to mar- 
ble cheesecake. 

During the meal, couples were provided 
with live entertainment by a variety of per- 
formers, including Obed Cruz, who played 
a piano medley; Valerie Johnson and 
Myron Mbton, who sang a duet called 
"You and I"; and performances by 
Freestyle, a group which played a jazz ver- 
sion of Wham's "Careless Whisper"; and 
Spare Time, a ten-member band led by sax- 
ophone player Scott Kemmerer, who per- 
formed "Morning Dance" by Spyro Gyra. 
George Turner and David Denton com- 
pleted the live program with a classic ren- 
dition of the baseball skit "Who's on 
First?" Baseball was also the theme of the 
movie which concluded the evening: "The 
Natural," starring Robert Redford. 

Opinions of the banquet were, for- the 
most part, highly favorable. According to 
Sherry Beardsley, Sigma Theta Chi vice- 

president, the food was much better than 
that served at previous banquets. "The 
fried mushrooms were terrific," she 

When asked what she liked best about 
the evening, Stephanie Krishinger summ-

Workload Study: How Hard Do Profs Work? 

SHINGTON, D.C. (CPS)~The average college teacher works anywhere 
1 45 to 55 hours a week, but most studies of faculty work habits are so 
isistent and contradictory they're virtually useless for measuring how hard 
ssors work, a new summary of faculty workload scholarship argues. 
Iculty members, moreover, are partly to blame because they don't often 
jprate with the studies, says Hofstra University researcher Harold Yuker, 
[authored the new summary published by the Association for the Study 
Bgher Education. 

fhey dislike and distrust studies of their work habits," Yuker says, 
heir negative attitudes can be traced to beliefs that quantification results 
^ccuracy and distortion," he observes. 

ne faculty members, for instance, exaggerate how much time they spend 
Be job. 

|hundreds of studies over several years, for example, faculty members 
Jted they work an average of 55 hours per week, roughly the same as 
Ers, doctors, and business executives. 

|t studies that don't rely on faculty responses show the average college 
|er works 45 hours per week. 

yker says senior faculty members are more likely than lower-ranked pro- 
ps to overstate how long they work. 

Pe facuhy leaders say it's just as well there are no reUable data on facul- 
prkloads because if there were, they would hkely be misused, 
faculty should be judged on the basis of performance, not 
|he basis of the number of hours they put in," 

|nds Robert Kreiser of the American Association of Univer- <w^»* om IN TY 

Irofessors, a faculty union. BLOOM CUUW 1^ 

per's review of recent faculty workload studies also found: 
|Mucing a faculty member's teaching load will not necessarily [^ 
ise the professor's research output. 
N number of hours a faculty member spends at work is not 
f to class size, class level, or the number of different courses 
[she ftiust teach. '^ 

■ jnost schools, full professors have the lightest teaching 
' '"structors the heaviest. 

|culty members devote between three and 20 percent of their 
F° meetings and administrative activities.

A sea of red, gregarious mimics, Bermuda shorts, 
pumpkins, ice cream, country/western music, Mr. T., 
and Edgar O. Grundset-sound familiar? Add them all 
together and you have the Fall Festival, sponsored by 
the Student Association and Student Services. This was 
a week of festivity and amusement and a time to do 
bizarre things. Although the bulk of the participation 
was by the students, a few faculty members rose to the 
festive occasion as well. 

The days of extraordinary dress were, to say the least, 
quite amusing to us all as various kinds of costumes were 
seen all over campus. On Tuesday, October 29, the first 
day of the festive week. RED color day was blatantly 
apparent throughout the grounds in the guise of red 
shirts, skirts, dresses, pants, socks, shoes, sweaters, hair, 
make-up, hose, and other garments. Although the 
reason for the color red being chosen was never told, 
it is believed to be a student protest of either the blood- 
bath in Nicaragua, a Bolshevik revolution in Col- 
legedale, or Miss Carole Huenergardt's favorite color. 
The next day, October 30, was six-pack day, which 
had nothing to do with intoxicating substances or the 
consumption thereof. What actually happened was that 
rather than have a twin day where two students would 
dress alike, the S.A. opted for a more challenging Six- 
pack Day, where six students would dress in similar 
fashion. It was overwhehningly droll seeing Mimes, 
Roman citizens, Rambo-rejects, and Mafiaettes parading 
about our institution. 

The last eventful day consisted of a Beach day with 
the environs of Collegedale providing- the appropriate 
weather-fifty-degree rain. Despite the environment, a 
great number of people participated. Although it rain- 
ed outdoors, the water was fme indoors as Ripping Dave 
Gentry led out in the all-too-traditional "Surf's Up!!" 
in the cafeteria. This was clearly the highlight of the day. 
^ The evening was, however, a different story. 

Because we have this concept, many of us seek 

from thinking to ever i""'^^'"8 activity. 

God said "BesUU,andknowthatIan.God (Psaun 
46°0?."d Moses found God in the still small voice^

scene of the whale boat in pursuit of the great white 
whale. Everyone in the boat strives mighuly in pursu- 
ing the whale. Everyone, that is, but one person. This 
one person doesn't sweat or strain. He puUs on no oa^ 
and shouts no orders. This man is the harpooner, and 
he is there in the bow waiting quietly for the right mo- 
ment. Melville says, "To insure the greatest efficiency 
in the dart, the harpooners of this world must start to 
their feet out of idleness, and not from out of toil. 
It appears appeaUng to be an activist, ever on the run. 

The cUmax of the week, the Halloween Party, was 
called indoors because of the rain, but lost no jocosity 
in doing so. Besides the normal cafe food, a number of 
gallons of ice cream were served to increase the party- 
like atmosphere. While increasing their girth, the 
students were entertained by doggers, Steve Grice and 
his band, a questionable Elvis impersonation by Bill 
Young, and, of course, Edgar O. Grundset himself. 
"Mr. Spontaniety" emceed the entire program, keep- 
ing everyone in stitches as he described each costumed 
individual in his unique "Grundset" way. There were 
three main categories in the costume judging. First place 
in the Halloween category was won by Shelly Acevedo 
as Countess Dracula. Bobby Rada came out on top of 
the Character Impersonation category as Rambo. Final- 
ly, in the Nerd category Randy Holcombe and Chuck

work, forget the guys and go out with the girls. 
Remember what Ray Parker, Jr., says: "Girls are more 
fun." Maybe they are, maybe they're not. At least you 
won't have to worry about restraining yourself from 
making romantic overtures to some guy. But wait a 
minute-maybe he's absolutely gorgeous (you know, the 
Mel Gibson type). Or perhaps he's exceptionally in- 
telligent (kind of the Kevin Rice type). And he could be 
the funniest guy you've ever met, and always fun to be 
around.. ..All right, I convinced myself-I'll call him up. 
Oh, hurry, hurry! 

The preceeding article is the opinion of the author, and 
is not necessarily the view of anyone else. 

Hd-Fashioned Girl 

What is this world coming to? The other night I was 
in a friend's room and she was talking on the phone. 
After a little ho-humming on my part, she hung up and 
I asked her who she was talking to. "Oh, that was 
Reginald," she answered dreamily. 
. "Really? Why did he call?" 
"He didn't--! did." 
"Oh. ..why?" 
"No reason." 

Well, this old-fashioned girl (me) nearly fainted. A 

girl-a friend of mine, no less-called up a guy for no 

reason! "How could you be so bold, Kim?" I asked her. 

"Oh, come on, Beth, this is the eighties!" was her

i trays.. .well, I thought the worst. 
Vhile talking with some of my "outgoing" buddies

TYeah," one replied. "But I got tired of waiting for 
jieone to chase me."

Comet Update 

By Tony Figueroa 

Halley's comet should be visible November 8-18 with 
either a small telescope or binoculars and luck. During 
these moonless nights, Halley will double in magnitude 
(brightoess). It will appear to be passing through the con- 
stellation Taurus, which is slightly above and to the right 
of Orion. Taurus is highest in the sky at midnight. 

Catching an early glimpse of Halley won't be easy, 
so to even have a chance, here are a few tips. Be sure 
to take a star chart, and if possible, take along someone 
who has used one before. Go to a dark place that is clear 
of trees. To be sure it's dark enough, wait about 15 
minutes for your eyes to adjust and check whether you 
can see stars all the way down to the horizon. Avoid us- 
ing any bright lights. This means that any flashlights 
must be shielded; a couple of layers of heavy, brown 
paper (e.g., grocery bag paper) does a good job. You 
may notice that faint stars disappear when you look 
directly at them. This frustrating phenomenon, averted 
vision, occurs because peripherial vision is more sensitive 
to faint light. 

Thatcher Prayer 
Group Meets God 

By Janet L. Conley 

Karen Sullivan and Nereyda Cardona developed a 
morning prayer group made up of Thatcher Hall 
residents because, as Nereyda puts it, "We both thought 
there was a need for the girls to get together and 
fellowship before the day began." 

Karen and Nereyda, freshmen at Southern i College, 
formed the idea during an afterglow meeting at the 
beginning of the year. Then they began inviting girls to 
worship with them. 

The group now has from three to eight members who 
attend each day. They meet in the women's dorm lobby 
at 6:00 a.m., and then, weather permitting, on the That- 
cher porch or on the front steps of Wright Hall to con- 
duct their meetings. 

"We usually sing," begins Karen. She smiles a half 
smile and continues, ' 'At this hoiu-? Maybe we just make 
a joyful noise to the Lord." 

After the singing, several members of the group share 
devotional thoughts or texts. Then they separate into 
groups of two or three and pray together. 

Twyla Shank, another member of the group, said, 
"Sometimes it's discouraging when only a few people 
come. But the Lord is working on others, and we're help- 
ing. We're 'devil discouragers.'" 

The worships usually last about half an hour, but ac- 
cording to most members, it is time well spent. Karen 
comments, "It's hard to get up for the worships, but 
it's definitely worth it when I do." 

If you don't have the patience to sit out in the middle 
of nowhere searching the sky for some fuzzy speck of 
light, don't worry. Halley will be visible again, and 
brighter, during the first fifteen days of December.

Time Out 

Commentary: "The Comeback Kids' 

:~A By Kent Boyle 

^ Everybody loves the underdog, or so it seems. Think 
of all the movies based on the "nobody" performing 
some spectacular event. "Rocky" is the perfect exam- 
ple, a meathead who wins the title fight. Rambo, another 
meathead, takes on all of the Vietnamese army and 

The movie makers dream of the underdog winning, 
but rarely does it happen in real life. Well, the 
"Comeback Kids," the Kansas Oty Royals, did the im- 
possible in the World Series by being the first team ever 
to lose the first two games of the series at home and win; 
and they were only the fifth team ever to come back from 
3-1 to win. 

Even though this series was not the most exciting one 
ever, it had its great moments and shining performances 
from outstanding players. George Brett, by far the best 
player in the series, didn't shine as brightly as his fans 
had hoped, but he pulled through in the end with the 
highest batting average in the series at .370. The other 
Brett, Saberhagan, voted MVP for the series, was the 
real star who proved to be the inspiration to bring the 

Hawaiian Flagball 

By David Gentry 

The crowds have started to lose interest; the early 
season enthusiasm has been on the decline. However, 
games are still being won and lost-some by forfeit. 

Monday night football in A-league witnessed Manzella 
defeating Selby in a no-surprise win. For ManzeUa, Ran- 
dy Beers set the offense going by catching both a 
touchdown pass and the extra point. 

In an upset over number-one-rated Butler, Drab rush- 
ed out to a 26-7 half-time lead, but Butler made a game 
of it in the second half. 

first World Series title to Kansas City. Going into the 
seventh game it seemed as though Tudor for the Car- 
dinals was the master of the mound, but the 21-year- 
old Saberhagan, stiU wet behind the ears, tutored Tudor 
in pitching as he shut the Cards out, 11-0. 

The series was really over in the sixth game when Dane 
lorg in the bottom of the ninth knocked in two runs for 
the Cards to tie up the series. The rest was a piece of 
cake for the Royals as the hitting machine, George Brett, 
went 4 for 4 in the seventh game. Darryl Motley smack- 
ed one into the left-field seats off Tudor, which began 
the long, drawn-out humiliation of the Cardinals. 

The Cardinals went into the seventh game expecting 
to win. The press, the critics, and most of the sports fans 
agreed that they had the definite advantage. But the 
"Comeback Kids" had something else in mind. Maybe 
they were fed up with just seeing the underdogs win in 
the movies, or maybe they were tired of never winning 
the big one. But one thing is for sure: they gave a thrill 
to all the people in the sports world by being the little 
guys who conquered the "unbeatable foe." 

B-league action was seriously cut short with a forfeit 
by Herman. 

Drab shined once more Tuesday night in a walkout 
over Selby, 45-20. Selby was hurt by key interceptions 
made by Steve French. 

The rest of the evening was B-league on both fields. 
Parkhurst weaseled past Goffin, thanks to a saving in- 
terception by Jim Sines. 

In the late game, Mackey failed to show, causing a 
forfeit for his team, despite an amazing appearance by 
Paul Ware.

Going Home Thanksgiving' 


Whether ever>one agrees with the idea or not, Elder 
NealC Wilson, world president of '"e Seventh-day 
Adventist Church, has sent letters to nauonal leaders 
Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev urg..^ them 
,0 end the international arms race at the Geneva 
Conference to be held November 19-20. Nothmg wrong 
^^h that, tt seems. But it sounds ^i-f.« «f ' ^"" 
would have been up against if he had tried to make a 
peacemaker out of Pilate. 

The letters state the hope that "the Conference will 
be the beginning of the end of the international arms 
race a contest which consumes huge portions of the 
world's financial resources while miUions of our human 
famUy suffer in poverty and die from famine and 
disease." The leaders are urged to "find ways whereby 
nations can channel their energies and resources into 
positive, non-military, humanitarian endeavors in order 
to make our world a happier, healthier, and a safer place 
to live " Adventists want to be known as peacemakers, 
concludes the message. And 1 believe they are. 

The problem is that the letter sounds very much like 
a plea from Greenpeace or Amnesty International. The 
whole aim of those organizations is "to make our world 
a happier, healthier, safer place to live." God's spmtual 
new world is left out of that ideology altogether. 
Hospitals and schools make a happier, healthier world. 
Appealing to poUticians for safety seems to be missing 
the point of an eternally safe place. 

In his upside-down book The Screwtape Letters. C.S. 
Lewis discourses, through the mouth of a devil, on the 
subUeties of temptation. One of the ways to trip a Chris- 
tian, he gleefully relates, is to encourage a desire for ear- 
thly happiness in his petitionary prayers when a threaten- 
ing situation arises. The letters to the national leaders 
said that the nearly five million Seventh-day Adventists 
would be urged to pray for the success of the Geneva 
Conference. If we look for a simple truth, or even com- 
mon sense, in this matter, it might be that perfect

security in a perfect world is what we should pray for. 
not relative safety in an inevitably dangerous world. 

Does this affect you and me? Yes. you cannot ignore 
it. We are the next generation of thinking people, prepar-

Talge Cold Hot-water Update 

Dear Residents. 

As you know, lately we have been experiencing a 
bountiful amount of scalding water coming out of the 
COLD water faucets. 

This is due to a broken valve which is supposed to 
keep the hot water out of the cold water pipe?. 

The only way to fix it is to drain the boiler, which 
means it will not be fixed until Thanksgiving. 

So let's be thankful! To relieve the pressure from the 
cold or hot pipes, depending how you "FEEL" it, I will 
run my personal cold (or hot) outside water hose into 
the parking lot, so that at least the East Side can get a 
regular shower. Some people on East Side could USE 
a regular shower. 

If the parking lot f reezes~we will have a huge hockey 

You are welcome to drink from the hose as you pass 

No. Eglinas. the dorm will not buy you a pair of rub- 
ber boots!

Adventist Leader Urges End of Arms Race 

j^ release from the Seventh-day Adventist Church 
world headquarters 

Washington-The world president of the Seventh-day 
Adventist Church has asked the leaders of the United 
Slates and the Soviet Union to end the international arms 
race when they meet November 19-20 in Geneva. 

In letters to President Ronald Reagan and Soviet 
leader Mikhail Gorbachev, Adventist General Con- 
ference President Neal C. Wilson said "millions of men, 
women, and children around the circle of the earth... are 
nAst anxious that the (Summit] Conference will be the 
i Winning of the end of the international arms race, a 
I contest which consumes huge portions of the world's 
financial resources while millions of our human family

Headhunting for SC 

This could be the easiest $250 you earn as a student 

here. If you know somebody not already on an SDA 

I campus who ought to be here for second semester~and 

you help make it happen-the college will make it worth 

your while. 

"There are scores of SDA youth who are of college 
age, who have college capabilities, and who should be 
here at Southern College," explained Dr. Ron Barrow, 
vice-president for admissions. 

During the coming Thanksgiving and Christmas vaca- 
tions, students may have opportunity to meet with 
friends and former classmates. "If Southern has been 
' a good experience for you, why not share that with these 
acquaintances and convince them that they, too, can en- 
joy college in a Christian environment?" asked Dr. 

"For every friend you influence to enroll here as a 

new, full-time student, a $250 scholarship will be credited 

l„ to your account at the close of second semester," he 

stated. He explained that the student must meet admis- 

ffiequirements and complete the semester here. This 

gme opportunity expires January 14, 1986, and does 

apply to students transferring from other SDA 

Bes or universities. 

toy questions remain after you read the following 
' «- of the program. Dr. Barrow suggests that you 
, contact either the Admissions Office or the President's 
,; Office. 

Here's How to Earn Your Scholarship 

1 1 . Get an information packet from Admissions Office 
f {Wright Hall, Room 113). 

j 2. Contact the prospective student (one who has not 
1 already applied for second semester admission as of 
I, November 15, 1985). 

3. Have the prospective student complete the necessary 
j, application documents. He or she should request that 
[,«tt official transcript from high school (and college, if 
^jsny) previously attended be sent directly to the SC 
.'Admisssions Office. 
f , 4. Bring the prospective student's completed applica- 
tion to the Admissions Office for verification under your

resources into positive, non-military, humanitarian 
endeavors in order to make our world a happier, 
healthier, and safer place to live. 

"In a world filled with hate and struggle, in a world 
of ideological strife and military conflicts. Seventh-day 
Adventists desire to be known as peacemakers. We trust 
your goal is the same," Wilson continued. 

The Adventist leader said that he will ask the nearly 
five million Seventh-day Adventists in 184 countries to 
pray for the success of the Geneva Conference during 
the denomination's annual Week of Prayer and "that 
individually and collectively we will respond to the ap- 
peal of the United Nations to make 1986 the Interna- 
tional Year of Peace. 

"Seventh-day Adventists take seriously and personally 
the following words from the Bible: 'Blessed are the 
peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of 
God,' " Wilson concluded.

Students Lead Week 

of Prayer 

By Tag Garmon 

Student Week of Prayer, held October 28 through 
November 1, has come and gone. Once again, we ex- 
perienced some of the best student public speakers, musi- 
cians, and theologians that our college has to offer. 

As usual, during this week of spiritual emphasis 
students presented the programs for all of the dorm wor- 
ships in Talge and Thatcher, the general assembly 
chapels on Tuesday and Thursday, and the mid-week 
service at the church. 

Sixteen smdents gave spoken messages, and more than 
twenty-six students got involved in special music. Assis- 
tant chaplain Bill Dubois, who co-ordinated the Week 
of Prayer with Bob Folkenberg, says student participa- 
tion was "great" and that this year's Week was one of 
"the best we've had in the five years I've been here. 

Students spoke on a variety of subjects, but aU were 
centered around the theme for this special week, "Faces 
of Love. ' ' Each sought in his or her own way to convey 
practical ways to love others, self, and, most of all, God. 

Student Week of Prayer, an annual occurrence spon- 
sored by C.A.R.E., is one of the special programs 
designed to enrich the spiritual atmosphere on campus 
through student participation.

She Manages 
"K.R.'s Place" 

By Keith Potts 
"Stromboli. . .Provolone. . .White Grape 

Juice.. .Frogurt," calls Linda Davis from the cash 
register. Mrs. Davis is the curly blonde manager of 
"K.R.'s Place," a snack bar in the student center at 
Southern College. 

Mrs. Davis, in her second year of managing "K.R.'s," 
likes her job. "Ilike working with the kids that I hire," 
she says. 

A licensed beautician for 1 5 years and a cosmetologist, 
Mrs. Davis has had ten years' experience owning and 
managing a beauty shop. This experience has helped her 
manage "K.R.'s Place." "K.R.'s" is a'reaUy easy place 
to run," she says. "Mr. Evans (Southern College Food 
Service Director) makes it easy. He's a really good 

Working at "K.R.'s" from 1:00p.m. until 9:00p.m. 
is her only complamt. "I'd rather be open nine to five," 
she says, "but that's not possible." 

Her husband, Ron Davis, is a theology major at 
Southern College. "My husband wanted to go to 
school-somebody had to earn money," she says. She 
and her husband originally lived in Cedar Lake, 
Michigan, where he worked in a mill as a foreman. From 
Cedar Lake they moved to Pioneer Valley Academy in 
Massachusetts. There her husband worked as assistant 
manager of the "Dakota Bake 'N' Serve." They return- 
ed to Cedar Lake, then moved to Collegedale. 

Mrs. Davis said that they got to Southern College two 
weeks after school had started. UsuaUy by this time most 
of the jobs are taken, so they didn't expect a job. Even 
though school had started, she got the job managing 
"K.R.'s." She says, "The Lord had a purpose in wan- 
ting me to learn something before becoming a pastor's 
wife." . 

Now living in the staff apartments on campus, she is 
a busy woman. In addition to putting her husband 
through school, she is also putting their three daughters, 
ages 11, 12, and 14, through school at CoUegedale's 
Spalding Elementary School. 

Mrs. Davis is also taking a class herself on social 
welfare. She says that doing social work as a pastor's 
wife is a good activity. "I just enjoy people," she says. 
"I enjoy helping them out of their problems. People 
always want to teU you their problems." Mrs. Davis said 
that whUe in academy she was a haU monitor, and peo- 
ple came to her for advice. As a cosmetologist and as 
a nursing student she has been looked to for help as weU. 
Now at "K.R.'s" her work continues. "You run m- 
to problem kids once in a whUe," says Mrs. Davis. She 
says that it gives her a chance to witness and teU kids 
that "it's the Lord" they need and that they may need 
additional help as well. 

Unless her husband decides to go on for further 
schooling, she has six months left to work at "K.R.'s." 
She still "goes for" the food she serves and the people 
she serves it to as well. A fan of the Sizzle Special and 
Frogurt, she clauns that the "hardest time in "K.R.'s" 
is closing the door-everyone's still hungry."^ 

Mrs. Davis attributes the success of "K.R.'s Place" 
to her student employees. She would like to thank her 
employees for "supporting and helping me and making 
my job easier because of the help."

On Getting Fat and Lazy 

J Bv Cordon Bietz 

"" We have a cat, named Slippers, who stands guard over 
our house while the famUy is gone. Well, "stands guard" 
may not be the right way to put it-it is more Uke "sleeps 
guard." We have generally been pleased with the ar- 
rangement, for we don't Uve in a very dangerous 
neighborhood, and our family doesn't like the idea of 
having a watch dog. Barking dogs and their general lack 
of personal hygiene doesn't seem to fit with the fami- 
ly's life style. 

We have been generally pleased with Slippers the cat 
for she does provide a degree of companionship for 
members of our family, albeit a generaUy disdainful 

The patience that maintains this comfortable arrange- 
ment is wearing a bit thin, at least for the head of the 
house (that's me). The other day my wife came into the 
house (she is the one who allows me to think I am the 
head of the house) saying that there was a mouse in the 
garage; she had seen it scurry under a small cupboard. 

I, being the head of the house, knew just what to do. 

Interview with Dr. Rosalyn Yalow 

By Bob Rodgers 
/4ccenr: "First of all, are you mainly lecturing right now? 
Are you doing research?" 
Yalow: "Yes." 
Accenl: "In what area?" 

Yalow. "There are actually three or four areas. Primary 
interest now is this peptide I spoke of. We know it's in 
the gut; we know it's in the brain. We know what it does 
to the gall bladder and the pancreas. We really don't 
know why it's a threat, so we're interested in evaluating 
that further. We're interested in comparing old world 
to new world mammals with respect to the nature of the 
peptides they have and how they fimction. The third area 
is of concern to the Veteran's Administration: double 
amputees, traumatic amputees from the wars with in- 
creased risk of cardiovascular disease." 
Accenl: "So you don't lecture a whole lot? It doesn't 
look like you would have much time." 
Yalow: "My husband thinks I take all the lectures. My 
secretary thinks I take a small fraction of the lectures. 
I'll have a period where it's pretty intense, usually in Oc- 
tober or November, but in fact when I go out and lec- 
ture I take annual leave, and, essentially, the leave 
I use up a year is just equal to vacation time. And I feel 
in a sense that it is vacation time because I enjoy doing 
it so much. 

Accent: "Your busy schedule might have hindered your 
home life, but it seems to have helped. Do I take that 

Yalow: "In the time of this high divorce rate, I laughing- 
ly say one reason why I get along so well with my hus- 
band is I travel so much. I really think it's irrelevant.

In other words, ... so many people waste so much of 
their time or have other interests that I don't have." 
Accent: "So I guess the main effect that winning the 
Nobel prize has had on you is..." 
Yalow: "Giving me access-the visibiUty to the public. 
I am probably better known than many of the laureates 
partly because I was the first woman, partly because I 
consider it important to deal with these issues. Like I 
like to go out to a university Uke this, or larger ones, 
and tell the science department, 'You know, you have 
a responsibility to teach science to others than scientists. 
You have to appreciate the fact that science is very im- 
portant to our lives, that people are making decisions

Accent: "One thing I wonder about is when you went

Yalow: "Well, I had an Indian physician who came to

Is it possible that Laodicean Christians are i_

materialism? Maybe we need the discipline of c

our appetite for God's word. 

What were you working on at the time?" 

Yalow: "We were attempting to investivate thed 

pearance of labeled insulin from the plasma of diibii 

and non-diabetic subjects. We recognized thatiiJ

it's a hard time or an easy time. I went back to«

got married in 1962. They then moved to Uruguay and 
lived there for one year. 

Mrs. Ott completed her first degree in Sao Paulo, 
Branl, in secretarial science and business. She has com- 
pleted another in Spanish since then. 

Mrs. Ott's native language is Portugese. But she 
speaks three other languages fluently: English, Spanish, 
and German. When asked if she ever thought about 
teaching a foreign language, her response was, "One 
teacher in the family is enough." 

Mrs. Ott has two children, a son, Eddie, and a 

daughter, Vivian. Eddie is a junior at CoUegedale 

; AcSdemy, Vivian is an RN with an A.S. degree and is 

: working towards her B.S. degree in the nursing program 

■ here at Southern College. 

Mrs. Ott's future plans include more traveling, she 
said. "1 wouldn't mind going to Brazil to visit old 
' friends." 

A few years ago I believed in an effeminate, tender- 
foot Christ. But then one day I opened my Bible and 
read the Gospels for myself. I was amazed at what I 
found. Instead of a man who used love as an excuse for 
having no backbone, I found a strong, vigorous man 
who told religious leaders that they were blind fools and 
ignorant of scriptures! His own words make His feel- 
ings quite plain~"You hypocritsi You travel over land 
and sea to win a single convert and then make him twice 
as much a son of hell as you are. You remind me of 
white-washed tombs-full of dead men's bones and 
everything unclean. You snakes! You brood of vipers! 
How will you escape the condemnation of hell?" (Mat- 
thew 23:15, 27, 33 NIV). 

Anyone who believes in a weak Christ surely has not 
stopped to read the Gospels for himself-either that or 
the majority of the world scores on its reading com- 
prehension tests. How C2m anyone think that a man who 
flings furniture across the temple, casts out a whole 
legion of demons, and rebukes a storm is a wimp? 

An important cause for this strange view is the media. 
Almost every picture I have seen of Jesus shows a 
skinny, muscleless man, perfect hair, and sad puppy- 
dog eyes. How could a carpenter, someone who cuts 
down trees, drags them home, and splits them into 
boards with his own hands, fit this description? Televi- 
sion has become such a big part of our lives that it's hard 
to see past the facade of Christ presented there. 
Hollywood seems to think that the definition of 
spirituality is severe anemia. I once saw a movie in which 
Christ skipped along the dusty roads of Galilee with a 
toothy grin on His face as He led His little band of 
disciples. Another depicted Him doing nothing but 
standing around staring at people with eyes that seem- 
ed to bore right into their sinful lives. Instead of accep- 
ting T.V. as sound truth, people need to study Mdfom 

their own opinions, not only with spiritual matters, but 
with every aspect of life. 

Tradition also has a lot to do with formed opinions 
today. The typical hero has always been an indestructi- 
ble warrior, fighting for his honor, and conquering all 
opposition. Loving your enemies, turning the other 
cheek, and dying on a cross just don't quite fit this im- 
age. A typical example is my little brother, Jason, who 
was having an argument with a couple of neighborhood 
children. I suggested that maybe he should apologize and 
tell them he loved them and wanted to be friends again. 
He looked at me incredulously and said, "Are you kid- 

I once saw a movie in which 
Christ skipped along the dus- 
ty roads of Galilee with a 
toothy grin on his face as he 
l ed his little band of disciples . 

ding? I'm no coward! That's not what He-Man would 
do; he'd let 'em have it!" The idea that Jesus was a 
coward is the most ridiculous one yet. It takes courage 
to walk up to a leper and touch him, to cast out demons, 
and to allow yourself to be taken prisoner by men who 
are planning to torture and murder you. 

Who was Jesus Christ? Was He a timid, weak, soft- 
spoken Man who went about saying "1 love you" to 
everyone He met, or was He the Son of God?

In the past, the SC gymnastics team has brought ex- 
citement to many people throughout the Southern Union 
as weU as the students here at SC. They have a reputa- 
tion for combining skillful tumbUng and apparatus 
routines with a touch of humor which has proved quite 
entertaining. One of the most popular routines is the 
tuxed-up "Southern Gents." This has been a favorite 
in the past as four of the fmest male gymnasts at 
Southern CoUege team up to perform a routine that re- 
quires brute strength as well as excellent balance. The 
"Gents" this year consist of veterans David Butler and 
Tim Tullock and new members Kirk Rogers and Glen

Final Chapter 

By David Gentry 

Last Wednesday night hosted still another round of 
football action for both A and B leagues. 

In the only A-league game scheduled, Butler reduced 
Rodgers for a 34-20 victory over them. 

B-league took up the slack with three games. In the 
first, Howe defeated Hobbs with a touchdown scored 
in the last 30 seconds. Wells easily defeated Herman 
44-18. calling on the skills of both Todd Hunt and 
Captain Fred Wells as quarterback. Cole vs. Boyle was 
especially exciting. After receiving the kickoff. Cole 
returned the kick to the end zone, past the end zone, 
and into the woods along with the rest of his team, signi- 
fying flight as well as a dramatic forfeit. Boyle had no

WSJ Prints Student Letter 

On Friday, October 18, a letter from Rondi Bauer, 
a student nurse here at Southern, was published in The 
Wall Street Journal. Rondi's letter was in response to 
an earUer article on the rights of doctors and patients 
to medical records. She has since received a con- 
gratulatory letter from a physician and chief of staff who 
supporu her view that medical records do not belong 
to the patient. 

Volleyball Survives Week One 

One note of interest after tiie first week of play is that 
every team that has played has won at least one game. 
The standings shown here represent a point system that 
gives one point for the match itself, which is at least two 
of the three games. In the only A-league game, Accar- 
do defeated Howe. B-league action saw wins by 
McEhoy, Wolfe, May, Wooten, and Feist. 

Ready to Help 

By Jerry fdser 
With the first semester of the 1985-86 school year 
quickly winding down, many students are finally doing 
something they should have been doing all along: stu- 
dying. Many are burning the midnight oil trying to bring 
their grades up. For some it will pay off. For others it's 
aheady too late. 

If you're in need of fmancial assistance, however, it's 
not too late for a stop at the financial aid office to check 
on the various programs available to help you finance 
your education. 

According to Laurel Wells. Director of Student 
Finance, a number of financial aid programs are 
available to assist the student in meeting the high cost 
of college tuition. Mrs. Wells indicated that 1,253 
students at Southern College received some type of aid 
during the 1984-85 school year. 

Students who are dependent upon their parents for 
support should turn in a completed family financial 
statement, a copy of the family income tax returns, and 
W-2 forms when applying for financial aid. 

It takes sbi to eight weeks for funds to be awarded 
once all the necessary forms have been completed and 
turned in. Remember, funds are disbursed on a first- 
come, first-served basis. Don't wait until it's too late.

freshman Jeff Swart. The letter was an assignmenlli 
Dr. Wilma McClarty's College Composition 102 cl^ 
The assignment called for a letter which disagreed w

Phone Calls to the Editor 

") I bke letters a lot more than I Uke phone calls. Let- 
^ ters never wake me up at 2 a.m. saying, "Sorry, wrong 

' A rouple of weeks ago, I got a phone call at 8 a.m. 
(in the middle of the night) from an admmistrator s 
secretary. "Brent, can you come up here to the office 
right away?!" 

"No way!" 

She might have sent a short letter requesung my 
presence. It would have gotten the job done a lot mcer. 
It's hard to wake up mad at the mailbox. 

The worst phone caU I got this year was one that went 
Uke this. 

"Hello, is Brent there?" 

"Yes, this is Brent." 

"Oh, sorry-wrong number." 

I just hate it when that happens. __

Unfortunately, it's not true that if you can't think, you 
can't talk. Why not just reach out and write someone 
the next time the urge develops to communicate? It 
makes you think, it makes you work, and it wiU help 
you remember what you said and thought. Can old 
yeUowed phone calls be re-read in front of the fireplace? 
Nothing doing, friends. Even if a caU were taped- it 
wouldn't be the same. 

So put fingers to the pen and tell someone he's great, 
or write a fiery hot letter to tell someone the world could 
do quite well without them. Be careful with a loaded pen. 
But whatever is written will sharpen the mind and put 
an edge on your intellect.

Collection Tactics 

By Jerry N. Kiser 

Southern College students who took a close look at 
their last financial statement may have noticed 
something new-a past due amount. If it didn't appear 
on your account then you are fortunate indeed, and 
without doubt an exception. 

According to Randy White, Director of Student Ac- 
counts and Collections, this is not a way of adding to 
the pressures of pursuing an education in this day of high 
college tuition, but an attempt to make the student aware 
of his financial status on a month-by-month basis. 

"Our goal," states White,"is not to work against the 
student, but with and for the student. The purpose of 
the past due amount being included on the student's ac- 
count is an attempt to educate the student that accounts 
are to be paid on a monthly basis. 

"In this day of tight money and changing financial 
situations, it's difficult to operate a business unless 
money is coming in on a regular basis," stated White. 
"Southern College is no exception." 

White went on to explain that student cooperation in 
the early filing for financial aid and prompt payment 
of accounts on a monthly basis not only makes the stu- 
dent's stay at Southern College more pleasant, but also 
enables the school to maintain a solid fmancial standing. 

"Unless the student has done all he has been asked 
to do, filing financial aid requests and securing student 
employment, etc.," stated White, "it's impossible for 
us to do all we can do for him." 

This is the first year the college has used the past due 
amount on the student financial statement. 

hour directed study coiu'se and pay $210.00 which covers 
the six-night stay at the YMCA and the bus 

"It may seem like a lot of money to a student," said 
Janis Case, "but when you add up all the great ex- 
periences and the fun you have, then the money doesn't 
even seem an issue. That's why I'm going again." 

There is also a three-hour Art Appreciation class that 
tours art galleries and museums in New York City, and 
they also stay in the YMCA. 

The two classes meet every morning for worship and 
then go their separate ways until around 5:00 p.m. when 
they are free to make the most of their free time until 
the next day's adventures begin.

Fund Drive Over 

By Tom Glander 

Radio station FM 90.5 WSMC was successful in this 
year's fund drive. The station's goal of $35,000 was sur- 
passed Friday, November 15, during the "Classic 

Accordmg to Development Director Gerald Peel 
"there was more community support this year than in 
recent years," with more than 135 new contributors 
being added to the list of supporters. 

The Classic Celebration began Sunday, November 3, 
with a chamber concert. Billed as the FM 90.5 Chamber 
Series, musicians met in Ackerman Auditorium and the 
evening's program was broadcast live by the station. 

The concert was pre-featured in the Chattanooga 
Times, and a later review called the concert "a splendid 
performance." The evening proved to be a springboard 
from which the station jumped into daily on-air fund 

Both students and faculty volunteered time durmg the 
pledge drive to answer phones and take pledges. Mr. Peel 
said, "All the volunteers helped make the event a suc- 
cess, and I would like to thank each one of them."

Thanksgiving or Selfishness; 

Bv Gordon BieK 

What are vou thankful for? You might say you are 
thankful that vou Uve in America, or that you don't Uve 
in Columbia. You might say that you are thankful that 
you have a lot of friends and plenty to eat. When we 
look to "count our blessings" or Ust what we are 
thankful for, we can usually come up with a long hst, 
especially if we live in America. 

Christians can even find reason for thanksgiving in 
bad things that happen to them. A famous Bible scholar, 
Matthew Henry, was once robbed of his wallet, and he 
wTOte these words in his diary; 

"Let me be thankful, Hrst, because I was never robbed 
before; second, although they took my waUet, they did 
not take my Ufe; third, because, although they took my 
all, it was not much; and fourth, because it was I who 

There is a void that 
Thanksgiving dinner can't 
fill; it can only be filled by the 
Son of God. 

was robbed, not 1 who robbed." 

Is thanksgiving just looking on the bright side of 
things? Is the experience of the thanksgiving season just 
counting how we are better off than so many others in 
the world? It seems to me that thankfuhiess like that is 
pure selfishness. Is it not selfishness to base my 
thanksgiving on comparing myself with others who are 
worse off than I am? Is Christian thankfulness simply 
being an optimist? I would suggest that we don't need 
to be Christians to have that kind of thankfulness. The 

heathen are thankful that they are not like others who 
don't have as much food or money as they do. 

Thanksgiving, at its root, is not just being P^=^ed 
when things go right for us. It is not just a warm feebng 
that we have when we get something we have been 
wanting. Let not our thankfuhiess this season be focus- 
Td like the Pharisee-thankful that he is not bke th H 
PubUcan. Let the measure of our gratefulness not be 
determined by comparing ourselves with others. 

We can be thankful for food, friends, health, and thel 
traditional things this Thanksgiving, but remember, you 
don't have to be a Christian to do that. The root of 
thankfuhiess-of thanksgiving-is an experience ot, 
trusting wilUng dependence on our Creator in all of our 
Ufe-the good and the bad. "In everything give thanks 
(1 Thess. 5:18). . 

In a thankful relationship with God we Uve in 
thankfulness based on God and not on our possessions. 
In a relationship with God we are thankful for our 
Creator and His love and not just for things. 

Thanksgiving is not what we possess but Who we 
possess, not what we own but Who owns us. Outside 
of a relationship with Him Ufe loses significance and! 
there can be no thankfuhiess. Outside of a relationship 
with God we cannot be truly thankful this Thanksgiv- 
ing, for at the essential level of existence there will be 
a void that Thanksgiving dmner can't fiU; it can only 
be filled by the Son of God. 

So what are we thankful for? That we know God and 
in that experience our thankfuhiess cannot be destroyed 
by bad tUmgs that happen to us. And in that experience 
this Thanksgiving wUl be more than being happy that 
we have more than someone else. Instead of a selfish 
Thanksgiving it wiU be a true Thanksgivmg.

Business as Usual in Student Senate Meeting 

By Gary Hoover 

Monday, Nov. 18, at 8 p.m. marked the fourth regular 
meeting of the Southern College Student Association 
Senate. The meeting was opened with the pledge of 
allegiance by ParUamentarian Joe Chaffin and a devo- 
tional by Senator Jennifer Reid. 

The first item on the agenda was the SA's financial 
situation. SA Treasurer Brian Paradis distributed a 
breakdown of the budget that listed how much was 
alloted to each given area and how much has been spent 
to date. Student Activities has spent $2,562.14 so far out 
of its alloted $ 10,800.00, of which Social Activities has 
spent $1,026.14 and Strawberry Festival $942.58. 

The next item on the agenda was to determine whether 
or not Strawberry Festival Producer Gary Hoover was 
going to receiv^e a salary of $500.00 for his work this 

year. President Jonathan Wurl explained to the senate 
how the producers have been paid in the past and where 
the money would come from this year. Afterward, Vice- 
President Cameron Cole took a vote of those in favor 
of the $500.00 salary. The motion was carried 

Other items on the agenda included the upcoming 
Talent Show on February 23 and the results of a ques- 
tionnaire each senator was to have given all his or her 
constitutents. Several ideas for a senate project were also 
brought up, including fmding a room that can be used 
for parties, etc., and getting a new P.A. system for the 
Student Association. 

The meeting closed with a vote to cancel the meeting 
scheduled for November 25.

College Dismisses 
Student for 
Being too Fat 

NEWPORT. R.I. (CPS)-A former nursing student | 
has sued Salve Regina College for $2 miUion, claimin. I 
the school expeUed her because she was too fat. I 

In a complaint filed last week in U.S. District Court 
Sharon L. RusseU, 21. claims the faculty membersv 
"tormenting and harassing her," and that the col 
wrongly dismissed her last August. 

In August, administrators sent RusseU a letter sayinj 
she could not return to her fourth year of the nursinjl 
program because "she had failed to live up to a docn. I 
ment she signed promising to lose two pounds pd I 
week." explains John L. Pelletier. Russell's attornty.l 
RusseU, who refuses to reveal her weight. adniitsshi| 
signed the unusual document last December, whentliil 
dean of nursing demanded that she lose two pounds i 
week "or else," says Pelletier. 

RusseU assumed the "or else" implied dismissal, anil 

she signed the document. I 

In October, 1984, RusseU had promised the deanshil 

would enroll in a Weight Watcher's program. 

Though she lost 35 pounds between October, 
and this September. RusseU claims some faculijl 
members caUed her "disgusting" and "a disgrace to Iki I 
college" even before she was expelled. I 

Faculty members repeatedly told RusseU "obesity did I 
not fit the image of the coUege." I 

RusseU's letter of dismissal cites her failure to live up I 
to the December agreement as reason for expulsion. Ill 
does not refer to any academic problems or inability t«| 
carry out her nursing duties. 

RusseU maintained a grade point average of 3.f 
Salve Regina. 

However, Steven Snow, the coUege's lawyer, s 
RusseU's weight, which he estimates is " considerably « I 
excess of 300 pounds," hindered her abiUty to perfoml 
various nursing duties, including CPR. I 

Salve Regina insists RusseU was expeUed only Ml 
the nursing program, and that she is stiU enrolled atiNl 
coUege. In fact, the coUege cashed her faU semester tuH 
tion check, sent just prior to her August expulsion,

Bill DuBois, Assistant Chaplain, has sent out letters

already begun to receive letters from faculty members

wish to get involved, but these are expected to fill 

Let's all encourage our friends to come and join the

Sojuconians Donate to 
Religion Library 

By Lisa R. Springett 

Sojuconian generosity will soon enhance the new 
Religion Center's collection of theological books. 

Three donations from Elder and Mrs. Robert L. 
Odem, Mr. Irad Levering, and Mr. Herman C. Rey, are 
responsible for the increased collection. 

Elder and Mrs. Odem donated $5000 and Mr. Lever- 
ing donated $1000 to go toward buying needed books. 
Also, Mr. Rey provided a list of many books from his 
personal collection that he would be willing to give to 
the religion library. 

The So-Ju-Conian Hall library will be a reference 
library for the use of the religion faculty and students. 
It will contain commentaries, Unguistic materials, and 
religious books. McKee Library will be in charge of ac- 
cessioning the books for the religion library.

Merry Christmas Ramblings 

Christmas time for me is a season when the night skies 
can be so clear that I think I can see as many stars in 
the sky as there are dollars in the national debt. 

Goodwill is everywhere this season. I hear it already, 
"Come buy your goodwill at our special sale-we feature 
everything you need for Christmas." 

When I sat down to write, I intended to produce an 
upbeat editorial, but the words hit the paper with the 
driving force of a slow mist. What can be said about 
the holiday season? It's a giving season-the test giving 
season. It's a time of colored flashing lights on trees and 
as always, police cars. It's the homecoming season-the 
heart attack season. The time to tell parents why grades 
were "well, uh..." Christmas is a time to get gifts, colds, 
sleighrides, and suntans. It's a joyful time we look for- 
ward to most of the year because it doesn't last near 
that long. 

Christmas is a time of romance and reminiscence. It's 
a kid's holiday. Snowmen, Santa Claus, and children 
are a match that seems to be "made in heaven." 
Christmas is a time of vacation, celebration, and 

rU get to see my brothers and my parents. The lights 
on the tree will be lit with the power generated by the 
whirling atoms at Commonwealth Edison. The radio will 
be playing Christmas music and advertisements spon- 
sored by "Avarice Industries," but the people I meet 
when I get home will be happy to have me, and I'll be 
glad I'm there.

Dear Editor: 

On Saturday night, November 23, I went to the PE 
Center to listen to our college band perform. I went for 
two reasons: (1) Saturday night is my wife's T.V. night, 
(2) I am a ex-tuba major and enjoy band music. 

The first half of the concert was very good. I sat 
towards the front and enjoyed the music irrmiensely. But 
then when the intermission came, I found it necessary 
to stand in the back, hopefully to awaken certain parts 
of my anatomy, thanks to the uncushioned tractor seats! 
I have some good news and some bad news. The good 
news is. anatomy woke up. The bad news is. ..there 
was a Barnum and Bailey circus going on in the back 
of the gym, and I missed the second half of the band 

Thanks to about eight to ten under-coUege-age per- 
sons, the spring boards were being abused, a semi- 
wrestling match was going on (Hulk Hogan would have 
been disgusted), little kids were jimiping on-over-through 
the balance beam, and to top it off, a hula-hoop con- 
test was going on in the center ring! And, of course, the 
hoop was hitting the floor on the off beats when the 
band was on the down beats. And with the way the 
bleachers were set up, you had to be Arnold 
Schwartseneager to get up on top, and then to get down, 
you either had to wrap your ankles, or forget all about 
basketball season. 

Mike Hershberger did his best in saving the situation 
and the equipment; he also may have saved the school 
mucho dinero (Know what I mean, Vern?) in law suits. 
I recommend he get a raise. 

Are there ways to maybe avoid these more-than-one- 
at-a-time programs? Just for what it's worth, my own 
suggestions: (1) when we have programs that have been 
proven not to draw large crowds, have them in 
Ackerman Hall. The acoustics, I would think, would be 
better, my anatomy wouldn't fall asleep, and there is 
no balance beam to break your neck on; (2) admit

Christmas Caroling : 

By Tag Garmon 

Saturday night, December 14, students here at SC 
have a chance to sing into the Christmas spirit while 
bringing a special gift to several Chattanooga 
neighborhoods. Campus Ministries and the Student 
Association are sponsoring a night of C.A.R.E.'oling 
and sharmg. 

Students will be divided into teams of 15 and each van- 
load will be given an area to visit. When they arrive, the 
C.A.R.E.'olers will sing at each of the 15 homes they 
visit. This year, however, the students will give two songs 
rather than one. 

The Village Market will be sponsoring the program 
by giving 90 loaves of fresh bread. After the students 
smg, they will leave a loaf of bread for each house they 
visit. "We wanted to add a personal touch in a healthy 
way," remarked Bil Dubois, assistant Chaplain and 
C.A.R.E. coordinator. 

Students are encouraged to wrap up warmly and come 
out for a fun-filled night of fellowship and sharing. 

Too Many 
Stacked Trays 

By Bethann Sturdivant 

"Ohhhh! Who did this?" complains, a cafeteria 
worker. Before him are three yellow trays stacked high 
with shredded Welch's Grape Juice labels, four plates 
of food layered with Ump napkins, and three bowls of 
tossed salad barely eaten. The worker grabs the mess 
before hun, letting the rush of properly laid trays pass 
him by. 

"Why do people do this?" complained another. 
"They wouldn't do this if they were at home with their 
mothers." Another stack of trays comes through the 
hatch, slowing down the line even further. "Seems Uke 
more and more people are trying to help us by stacking 
their trays," stated Diane Ringer. 

The problem of heaping up trays seems to getting 
worse, according to the Supervisor of the Dishroom, 
Helen Miller.

Prof Suggests Working Up A Sweat 

For Tests 

San Diego, CA (CPS) - It wasn't unusual to come 
across Patty Randolph jogging, stocking-footed, m the 
ladies' room just before an exam. 

As a student, Randolph jogged to give her bram an 
oxygen boost for the test. Now, as a developmental 
psychology lecturer for San Diego State, she passes along 
similar study and test-taking tips to her own studeflts. 
"Studying is a kind of hoop-jumping event," Ran- 
dolph says. "There are certain skills you can develop 
that will put you a few grade points higher. 

"It can mean the difference between a 'B minus' and 
an 'A' or a 'C plus' and a 'B,'" she adds. 

Keeping the brain stimulated during an exam is as 
important as keeping the rest of your body relaxed, she 
advises. Randolph recommends drinking fruit jmce dur- 
ing an exam to maintain the brain's glucose level. 

When you receive the exam paper, she suggests putting 
it aside, closing your eyes and clearing your mind. 

"Take a deep breath and relax; concentrate on how 
much you know and don't worry about what you don't 
know. Be positive," she says. 

Randolph says students sometimes "psyche 
themselves out" on exams to the point where their com- 
pleted test doesn't reflect their actual knowledge. 

Keeping your body in good shape prior to an exam 
usually helps the brain suy active, too. 

"How well you think is reflective of how your body 
is doing," she says. 

She recommends eating fruit, instead of candy bars, 
for energy, because it makes you feel better physically. 

and feeling positive is a must for doing well on a test. 
Randolph^mpUed her study tips from feUow facuUy 
members. counseUng center ^^onrc^-^Mn^' 
tending study workshops she conducted at Texas Chris- 
tian University. ^ ^ . ,._^ 
She says freshmen in particular need study tips 
because they "don't realize the importance of studying 
as a regular habit." . . 

"They also have the added burden of traimng other 
people to respect their study habits, to have other peo- 
ple accept their studying." 

If a student is afraid of the material, he needs to have 
a talk with himself and start with his hardest subjects 
first, when he is freshest, she advises. 

"But if he is absolutely paranoid, start with the easiest 
subjects to reinforce confidence." 
But can you study too much? 
Yes, she says, if extra studying means skimping on 

"It's okay to make tradeoffs on sleep versus study, 
depending on how well you know your body. Cut down 
on sleep if you know you can still operate well," she 
advises. "There's no point to being so exhausted you 
aren't able to say what you know on an exam." 

For some students, however, the night before the test 
is spent not reviewing information, but learning it for 
the fu-st time. Such cramming, Randolph says, is a 
"waste of time." 

"If you've never put the material in before, you're 
not going to get it out during the exam." 

The Crunch That 
Stole Christmas 

By Gordon Bietz 
Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a 
lot. ..But the Crunch, who lived just north of Whoville, 
did NOT! Now some of you think that I am misspelling 
his name, but I am NOT! This is the brother of 
Dr. Seuss's Grinch that you have read about who stole 
Christmas. The Crunch was much wiser than his brother 
The Crinch. He would not be so obvious as to just try 
to destroy Christmas by stealing it. Now he didn't like 
Christmas anymore than his brother The Grinch did. 
And if he thought he could have gotten away with it, 
he probably would have stolen it, but he learned from 
the experience of his brother that just stealing the 
presents, the ribbons, and the lights didn't stop 
Qiristmas from coining at all. 

The Crunch decided to come up with a way to steal 
Christmas so no one would notice it was stolen. As you 
can see, the Crunch was much wiser than the Crinch. 
The Crunch put on his ihinlting cap and mused and mus- 
ed about what he might do to rum once and for all the 
happiness and joy that came every December 25. Then 
he got an idea-an awful ideal Rather than taking away 
all the goodies and presents that the people in Whoville 
used to proclaim their joyfulness and stealing all of the 
food, Christmas trees, lights, and holly like his brother 
did, he would make sure that everyone in Whoville had 
lots of everything for Christmas. The houses would be 
so full of goodies that no one would have any time to 
think about the meaning of Christmas. He thought that 
if he worked hard, he might turn Christmas on its head 
and make it mean the exact opposite of what it was sup- 
posed to mean. If he could change its meaning, it would 
keep Christmas from commg, and he wouldn't get a 
headache each year by aU of the joyful noise from 
Whoville coming up to Mt. Crumpit, his mountoin 

So the Crunch began his efforts by starting the 
Whoville residents thinking very early about Christmas. 
He told the Whoville merchants that they would make 
more money if they advertised for Christmas early- 

before Thanksgiving even. He helped advertisers com- 
municate the idea that a person's value was based on 
what they owned, and the one that owned the most was 
the best Who in Whoville. He got everyone to thinking 
about what they were going to get for Christmas rather 
than what they were going to give. 

Slowly Christmas was turned into a time of selfish 
seeking rather than unselfish giving. People turned 
"grunch-like" as they fought for presents and tried to 
get more and more things for themselves. Soon, just as 
the Crunch predicted, the people stole Christmas from 
each other. And the Crunch didn't have to lift a fmger, 
and there was no more joy in Whoville.

Cheating in 
the Classroom 

^^BThou shalt not steal"~oi so states the eighth com- 
I IKudment as written by God in tablets of stone over 
5,000 years ago. 

Five thousand years ago people learned to take this 
lommandment pretty seriously. Take, for example, the 
I of Achan as recorded in Joshua 7. Achan stole a 
ylonian cloak, five pounds of silver, and a gold bar 
dm the city of Jericho. As punishment for this deed, 
ilmhua and the people of Israel stoned Achan to death, 
{ten burned his family and possessions. 

hough this was a rather severe punishment, it did 
1 a long time ago, to say the least. Over the ensu- 
|ears, the meaning of the eighth commandment 
I to have dinmied, at least in the minds of some 
fidents. Not that there has been a problem with peo- 
ng Babylonian cloaks, or even bars of gold, for 
St matter. Of course, possessions are stolen at SC, and 
while this is a problem, it is not as severe as a problem 
of a different kind: stolen knowledge. Knowledge steal- 
ing, more commonly called cheating, is perhaps con- 
sidered more "acceptable" than the stealing of posses- 
sioni, but it is equally unfair.

""fn College is a Christian school. Its students 

are admonished in the handbook to uphold Christian 
standards. Its teachers are paid to help them do so. Yet, 
these standards are not being upheld. 

Many public colleges and universities have an honor 
code. In fact, most of the leading scholastic institutions 
in this country avidly support honor systems. Among 
others, the University of Virginia is well-known for its 
student-run honor system. 

Although I certainly do not recommend stoning as a 
punishment for those caught cheating, I do feel that an 
honor code such as those employed by many other 
schools would help alleviate the problem. If Southern 
College has an honor code, it is not well pubUcized. It 
is not being upheld by students, nor is it being enforced 
by faculty. 

Many teachers do not even check to see if students 
have their desks cleared during examinations. While it 
is admirable for teachers to display this amoimt of trust 
in their pupils, their trust may be misplaced. If students 
cheat, and some do, then teachers should check for sign 
of cheating, and most do not. 

If this school is to retain a semblance of fairness in 
the degrees it hands to its graduating students and the 
grade reports it issues to its undergraduates, it must 
develop an honor system that is publicized and upheld. 
Teachers must look for and stop cheating when they 
observe it. It is their job. Students must report and 
discourage cheating. It is their responsibility. 

This responsibility concerns not only those students 
who are cheating, but also those students who are 
cheated from, or whose grades are lowered by those who 
do cheat. 

Of all the commodidites, knowledge is the most 
valuable. It, and its rewards, belong to those who earn 
them, not to those who steal them.

Brent Van Arsdell 
Editor in Chief 
Southern Accent 

of An"unTv sity describes, in his contribution, the economic structure of the 
AMv^HrcollcK system and it's bad news. The system resembles a cartel, not in 
Us r:™enfo-fm^^^ in its characteristics. 1 list a few of them here, m my 

"^Ad^nfet^dieges are financially non-competitive and also are protected from 
recruitment r^ds by union lines. This ataiost ensures inefficiency. Competition only 
comesTbout by offering more academic services, resulting in many majors and thm 
dep^ments. which adds to the inefficiency. While Advent st '"^'""''^^ ".^have 
the desired Christian atmosphere, academic excel ence is also part o the ideal col- 
lege experience and any threat to the standards is as undesirable as the threat of 
worldliness or heresy. „ . ,. , 

Average tuition costs have risen at twice the rate of inflation for several years, 
some of them attributable to an inefficient system. The system has a downward spiral 
characteristic in the way that church subsidies have to increase as coUege losses mount, 
contributing to the burden on the membership which is also trymg to pay the schoo 
bUls. Add to thU the declining Adventist coUege-age population and cuts in Federal 
aid, and the picture grows gloomy. 

Russell offers a couple of solutions, like centralization and competition, but the 
key word in aU of this is change. Change would help now, although it would be cost- 
ly. Soon it will be necessary for survival. But who can stomach it? There is no sense 
sldrting change just because the college system is not on the verge of collapse. 

In this professionally competitive age, current and prospective students alike will 
be observing the course of the Adventist colleges. Anxiety is contagious. 
By the way, Happy New Year.

Dear Editor: . 

I'd like to mention something most 
people have already forgotten. Thatcher 
open house has been scheduled the mght 
before the first day of finals tor the 
second year now. Do Deans Somers and 
Runyan really want students to fail their 
tests the next day because they have been 
distracted by the "jailhouse viewmg? 
Maybe the deans' job of getting rid ot 
the guys is easier when everyone knows 
what Monday morning brings. 1 think it 
is just one demonstration of the crass m- 
sensitivity of these "defenders of morali- 
ty" to the needs of the students. 

I am requesting that you don't print 
my name. I have enough problems with 
my "surrogate parents" already.

Spring Job Prospects Appear to Dim a Little 

EVANSTON. IL (CPS)— Spring grads' 
job prospects may not be quite as positive 
as previous reports predicted, the latest 
testing of American business' hiring plans 

The previous reports, moreover, sug- 
gested only slightly better job prospects 
than students had last year, when the job 
market was at a nadir. 

"1 expect it to be flat, maybe plus or 
minus one percent compared to last year," 
observes Victor Lindquist, supervisor of 
Northwestern University's Endicott 
Report, the most recent of the three ma- 
jor surveys on job prospects for graduating 

And previously "hot" engineering, com- 
puter, and chemistry grads are going to 
have a much harder time fmding jobs than 
their counterpaiu of the last few years. 

"Students are going to have to coinmit 
to a longer job search and be satisfied with 

fewer choices," Lindquist says. 

In late November, the CoUege Placement 
Cocncil (CPC) projected that firms will 
make two percent more job offers than 
they did last spring, while in December 
Michigan State's national survey of 
business hiring plans predicted a 1 .4 per- 
cent rise in job offers for '86 grads. 

The three surveys ask companies 
throughout die country how many first- 
time job seekers they plan to hire from the 
next graduating class. 

Lindquist says his report was less op- 
timistic because it polled firms three 
months after the CPC did and because it 
does not sample government agencies* 
plans like the CPC does. 

"Our report is pretty close to [Johnj 
Shingleton's at Michigan [State]," he 

"All three surveys sample different 
populations," explains Rhea Nagle of the 


For only the third time in 20 years, Lind- 
quist's "population" had a declining in- 
terest in hiring engineering majors. There 
will be six percent fewer job offers for them 
this year, the report said. 

The Endicott Report also predicts a nine 
percent decrease in offers to chemistry ma- 
jors. The other reports anticipated a 
"slight" increase. 

The Northwestern survey does agree that 
computer majors will suffer a five percent 
decrease in employment opportunities. 
Not all the news is gloomy, however. 
There is, Lindquist found, a continuing 
employer interest in business and 
marketing degrees. 

And liberal arts grads have better job 
prospects this year, the Endicott Report

exaco Station Under 
[ew Management 

By Charlene Spencer 

Mr Beecher Smith, former owner 
f, tie Texaco Service Station situated 
itlie College Plaza, officially turned 
iver the business to new management 

, the last day of 1985. 

Mr Don Duff, a resident of Col- 
leeedale and 30-year veteran in the gas 
tation business, purchased the new 
lease from Southern CoUege and 
renamed the station "Duff's Campus 
Service Center." 

The new manager indicated that 
changes would be made under his 
direction. Among these is a change in 
Ihe price of gasoline. "For one thing," 

January 16, 1 986/SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

stated Mr. Duff, "the gas will be 
cheaper. The price will be comparable 
to the Golden Gallon Service Station 
in Ooltewah," he said. 

The type of services offered will also 
differ under the new management 
because "no mechanical work or 
repairs will be performed," Mr. Duff 
said. "The sale of gasoUne will be the 
only service offered," the new 
manager added. 

Presently, the building and grounds 
are being renewed by the lease-holder.

Enrollment Up 

By Ramona Gennick 

As of January 10, 1986, over 1,200 
students had registered for Southern 
College's spring semester. This is an 
increase over last year's second 
semester enrollment of 1,114. 

The current enrolhnent for second 
semester is not the final picture, 
however. Mary Elam, Director of 
Records, stated that thirty additional 
students were stiU in the registration 

The last day to register is Tuesday, 
January 21, 1986, and additional late 
registrants are expected. 

In comparing these figures with last 
semester's final emoUment of 1,458, 
Ms. Elam explained that a 10% drop 
from 1st to 2nd semester is expected. 
This year that percentage remains the 
same. Part of this drop is attributed 
to the seniors who graduated last 
December. This year 106 seniors com- 
pleted their college course work and 
marched in December. This number is 
in keeping with former years, said 
Records' Office Manager, Sharon

Forecaster Naisbitt Sees a Great 
Student Job Market Soon 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (GPS)— WhUe they 
may not be able to tell it while they're beating 
the pavement looking for work in what recent 
reports predict will be a tight job market this 
spring, students will be sitting pretty when the 
Information Age finally dawns, social 
forecaster and author John Naisbitt says. 

Job appUcants are going to find the employ- 
ment market shifting more and more in their 
favor as firms- compete to hire decUning 
numbers of college graduates, he predicts. 

And in a seller's market, Naisbitt— author 
of Megatrends, the successful book about 
emerging social, economic, and poHtical 
trends— says students are entitled to ask ques- 
tions Uke: What is the company's vision? Can 
employees participate in it and reap benefits, 
perhaps through employee stock ownership 
plans? Is there profit-sharing for all, and are 
women paid fanly? 

The questions are far from impudent, 
Naisbitt says. And what's more, a quickly- 
growing number of young, generally high-tech 
companies actually expect them. 

The companies, which tend to be less hierar- 
chical than Fortune 500 firms and to concen- 
trate more on "nurturing" employees, are 
leading the way toward re-inventing the cor- 
poration, Naisbitt asserted in a recent 

Not coincidentally, Naisbitt discusses these 
new-age firms at length in his new book Re- 
Inventing the Corporation. 

He also notes that collegians are in a good 
position to take advantage of them in the job 

New companies are springing up at a rate 
unequaUed since the 1950s, but the fine 
balance of labor and capital has shifted 
significantly since then, he says. 

Labor used to be cheap, and money dear. 
Now, he explains, labor is the most valued 

"It's because companies know they need 
creative minds that can apply technical 
knowledge," Naisbitt says. "A knowledge of 
software Un't as valuable as being able to 
design software programs that revolutionize 
industry." . 

To get jobs in the Informanon Age, Naisbitt 
recommends that students "not concentrate 
on specific information skills, but learn how 
to learn and how to think." 

"As we become mo re high-tech, we are abo 

has grown is the enrollment of new 
students. This year 323 new students

to last year's 292. 

The male/female ratio for this 
semester stands at 42.2:57.8. 

becoming more high-touch," he says, citing 
a renaissance of interest in the arts and 

Naisbitt attributes the rise of the "nurtur- 
ing company" to the rise of corporate women 
who see a manager as a nourisher, not an 
order-giver. Women are also bring 
intuition— another characteristic of en- 
trepreneurial times— to the Information Age. 
But many campus placement officials warn 
that snidents had best think twice before grill- 
ing prospective employers about world visions 
during interviews. 

"Companies are marketing themselves dif- 
ferently because they see what's on the 
horizon, and that's a lot less graduates," 
agrees John Shingleton, placement director at 
Michigan State. 

But it's still not a seller's market for the 
non-technical student, he says, and the role 
reversal Naisbitt envisions during job inter- 
views is "a ways off." 

Naisbitt predicts that liberal arts students 
will be increasingly valuable in a "high-touch" 
society becaue of their ability to apply 
knowledge and to create. 

While Shingleton agrees those abilities can 
be invaluable, businesses have yet to seek them 

"Major companies Uke General Motors 
have announced they like liberal arts students, 
but I don't see them recruiting these people. 
Instead, they take people with the technical 
training to do the job now, and that's who 
they recruit." 

At best, a liberal arts degree is considered 
"an added skiU because it suggests an abUity 
to synUiesizc information," says Richard Hill, 
executive vice president of the National 
Association of Personnel Consultants. 

For the young, bright, and weU-educated, 
"we already have something of a seller's 
market," Hill adds, but that doesn't mean 
corporations are changing as quickly as 
Naisbitt suggests. 

"I don't see companies becoming less 
hierarchical, or, for that matter, changing 
their marketing strategies that much in the 
next three years," he explains. "They don't 
want to make a guess about which way things 
will go." 

Hill agrees with Naisbitt's observation that 
diverse educations have great appeal to 

"They like the balance of diversity; a techni- 
cian with liberal arts courses, a journalist with 
a technical minor, an attorney with a 
chemistry or biology degree," he adds.

Blood Assurance 
Seeks Donors 

By Jerry Kiser 
Thanks to an organization called Blood Assurance 
there's always a sufficient supply of blood on hand at 
local hospitals to meet emergencies. 

In 1969, the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Medical 
Society became concerned about the quaUty of blood 
being used in local hospitals. The Medical Society in- 
vited the Chattanooga Jaycees to join an investigation 
which ultimately revealed an alarming increase in the use 
of paid-donor blood. 

After concluding that there was a definite need for 
our own community blood banking program, the 
Medical Society/Jaycees set about to incorporate Blood 
Assurance. The new organization would be an indepen- 
dent, non-profit, community blood bank to serve the 
citizens of Tennessee and Northwest Georgia. 

According to Jerry Wilson, Group Membership 
Coordinator, Blood Assurance serves 13 area hospitals 
and five counties. In addition to Hamilton County, 
Tennessee, the organization also serves Dade, Walker, 
Catoosa, and Whitfield counties in Georgia.

for us on New Year's Day. 

So how was your vacation? I hope you did somethmg

special like skiing in the Rockies. I just stayed home.

Wilson stated that the two basic purposes of Blood 
Assurance are; "First, to promote the recruitment of 
enough healthy volunteer blood donors to eventually 
cover all of our own needs in this area, and second, to , 
provide the knowledge, the professional skill, and the 
equipment to ensure our citizens the safest blood 
■« possible." 
I In August, 1977, Blood Assurance moved into its pre- 

■ sent location in the Houston Building. The new facility 

■ has a large, comfortably equipped donor room, 
! laboratories, administrative offices, and parking 
I available for donors. 

I An expanded staff and additional state-of-the-art 


equipment were added to make Blood Assurance a tnji

students and faculty gather at marine biology station affiliated with Southern College. 

Rosario Beach 
Linked to Southern 

WWC, WA (PR)— It may surprise you 
to leari) that Southern College is affiliated 
with a marine biology station called 
Rosario Beach just north of Seattle 
overlooking the Puget Sound. 

You may be even more surprised to hear 
that Rosario Beach is operated by Walla 
Walla College in Washington. A vaguely 
recalled geography lesson will place Walla 
Walla on the eastern side of the state, in 
the middle of onion and wheat fields. 

Nonetheless, faculty from WWC's 
biology department load a van with equip- 
ment and books and drive to Rosario for 
eight weeks of research, study, and fun. 
Located amidst some of Washington 
coast's most spectacular scenery, Rosario 
Beach hosts from 30 to 40 scholars each 

The faculty, students, and researchers 
who call the biology station home in the 
summertime come from around the coun-

Rosario Beach is affiliated with SC, 
transferring credits is easy. 

Academic excellence is a tradition at 
Rosario. Not only does it appeal to 
undergraduates interested in biology, . 
also manages to attract a high caliber of 
graduate students, according to station 
director Joe Galusha. 

This past summer, two postdoctoral 
students from England's Oxford Univer- 
sity as weU as a doctoral student from 
Washington State University, participated 
in research based at the coUege station. 
The teaching faculty at Rosario keep 
current in their fields by conducUng 
original research while they are there. 
Galusha, who holds a doctorate from Ox- 
ford, and WWC biology department chau-- 
man Ron Carter spent the summer study- 
ing the behavior of glaucous-winged gulls. 
Faculty member Larry McCloskey 
researched plant cells that Uve within 
primitive marine animals, while faculty 
member Sue Dixon looked at plant growth 
hormones by using a cloning process. 

Other researchers came from Andrews 
University, Loma Linda University, and 
the University of Indiana. 

Galusha praises the faculty as having an 
"extremely high level of commitment" to 
quality science. He is also grateful for the 
biology program's close ties to the WWC 
engineering department, which helps the 
marine program maximize college com- 
puter resources. 

Founded in the 1950s, the marine station 
boasts a cu-culating saltwater system, with 
water pumped in fresh from the surround- 
ing inlet. This allows students to keep live 
specimens vital to lab work. 

The Rosario facility also owns a device 
known as a liquid scintillation counter that 
can "tag" atoms with various radioactive 
elements. This allows researchers to trace 
the flow of substances through living 

' The scenic location is an ideal biology 
laboratory. The waters teem with a wide 
variety of marine life. Students on field 
trips from the marine starion may observe 
seabirds on the islands in Rosario straights 
one day, then travel to the dryest spot on 
the Olympic Peninsula at Sequim the next. 
"It's a commitment to our students to 
experience the full range of biology," says 
Carter. The station provides, in'Galusha's 
\yords, "a blend of academic content and 
hands-on experience." 

This makes students' schedules varied 
and interesring. A typical day might find 
them diving for sea urchins and sponges; 
investigating the relationships between sea 
worms, shellfish, and star fish; or drying 
and pressing sea plants to complete their 

Many students choose to work off part 
of their tuition by pulling kitchen, clean- 
up, or other duties. 

Students work hard here, but the at- 
mosphere is casual, even communal. In- 
structors wear shorts. Graduate students 
answer questions. from first-year biology 
students. Students and faculty find time for 
evening volleyball games, known at 
Rosario as "the national pastime." 

If you are interested in earning biology 
credit in a fun and challenging way, think 
about spending a summer at Rosario 
Beach. David Steen, Chairman of S.C.'s

Desmond Doss Spoke 
for Graduation 

Desmond Doss, recipient of the 
Congressional Medal of Honor for his 
heroism as a wartime army medic, 
presented the commencement address 
for students graduating Thursday, 
December 19, at Southern College of 
Seventh-day Adventists. 

"Let Your Light Shine" was the 
title of Doss's address. A total of 104 
seniors received degrees in the 
December commencement. 

Ceremonies took place in the 
Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist 
Church, with graduation at 4 p.m., 
following the nurses' pinning 
ceremony at 2 p.m. 

Of the nearly 60 nursing students 
graduated, 42 associate degree 
students and 15 baccalaureate degree 
students were pinned. Jan Haluska, 
associate professor of English at 
Southern College, was the speaker for 
the pmning service. His title was "Pins

A Tale of Two Letters 

Idmt Werner, 

What's this paper-pushing kick I hear you're on? One 

I of my guys says you actually are considering passing out 

I more of that trash literature! I couldn't believe it. That 

Idotsn't sound like the Werner 1 know. Think back to 

itjunk-peddlin' times. Don't try to tell me that you 

n going out on those blistering cold winter nights 

Ipstate New York. C'mon, Werner, don't you 

Imber frozen feet, cold stares, and slammed doors 

ing with rejection? And what about that big, 

[ning, golden-voiced, slap-you-on-the-back 

jhering leader? Certainly you recall the time she to/rf 

you to go Ingathering. What audacity! To think that she 
could order you to crack knuckles on doors on a 
Saturday night in weather that makes you colder than 
sitting on an cast iron commode in the Klondikes! I felt 
so sorry for you. Tell me, now, was that fun? 

Maybe it wasn't as bad in CoUegedale, but surely you 
remember that big-bellied rabble-rouser. Let me 
reconstruct the scene for you. See him step out of his 
black, sleek '85 Trans Am (all 6' 5", 250 pounds of 
him!). Watch him as he strides to the porch like Dirty 
Harry. Feel the tremors as his booming voice intimidates 
you: "Watcha' peddlin', Boy?" Hey, chicken liver, tell 
me that didn't shake you in your boots! 

But that's Ingathering! Instead of a nap in a warm, 
snug bed or a carefree afternoon spent with your 
girlfriend, you were hassled by the porky rabble-rouser. 
What a shame. . .and to think you passed up so many 
"sweet" alternatives! Isn't it written that on the Sabbath 
"you should not do any work"? And doesn't the Book 
say you and yours "should enjoy yourselves with love"? 
Certainly God wants you to have rest and have fun., .or 
does He? 

I think you need to do some serious reconsidering 
before you pawn trash again. After all, are you stock- 
ing up on precious sleep or draining your last ounce of 
energy? Are you having sweet dreams or living 
nightmares? Protect your comforts. Think about 
slammed doors. Respect yourself. And enjoy. . . 

Faithfully yours, - Satan 

Dear Werner, 

We sure had a great time a couple of Sabbaths ago. 
I showed you what a neat, unique experience Ingathering 
could be, though it took some time to convince you to 
go. First, you reasoned with Me. You mumbled about 
a possible run-in with a rabble-rouser. Then you wanted 
to take a nap. On and on you went. The Loser tried his 
colporteur recipe on you. He first took a good measure 

of your self-pity and mixed it with the yeast, your fear 
of rejection. Then he added the garlic of rationalization 
sweetened by.the sugar of sweet alternatives, like naps 
and time with your girlfriend. After he had baked the 
whole mess in his oven of anxiety, out would have come 
the finished product: SELF INDULGENCE. 

But you can thank Me the recipe didn't work all the 
way on you this time. Instead we had a blast together. 
Remember the lady you met at the very first house we 
approached? Recall the lines of time etched on her face. 
Call to mind her genuine, bright smile and her warm 
Southern hospitahty. Contrast this with those hundreds 
of ugly, black crawlers on her front wall that she was 
spraying. "Give her a hand," I said, and you listened. 
You sprayed the roaches for her-and she watched, 
holding all of the literature. A casual conversation 
developed naturally. In the end, she even invited you to 
come back. 

Roaches-what a way to open the door! But think 
about the need you met and my power to surmount the 
difficulty. You gave me time and took action. In return, 
you truly ingathered. You gathered a worn heart that 
had endured the deaths of three husbands. You gathered 
an open mind. By giving of yourself you gathered in. 

Your experiences weren't always rewarding, though. 
That run-in with the rabble-rouser made your pahns 
sweat and your voice crack. Still, you gave from the well 
that never runs dry. You gave the great I AM. And when 
you gave Me, you gave all. Some doors slattuned and 
many voices were harsh. But I was with you always. You 
had a constant source of strength and grace to sustain 
you. Nothing could defeat you. 

Each time you go, you'll be able to overcome. And 
isn't overcoming ritualistic pew-warming and wimpy 
handshakes what you're really looking for? Don't you 
want to put pep into your Christian experience? The 
answer is simple. Think about people, individuals 
hungering for real life. Seek me first. Knock on the door. 
Meet their needs. And grow. . . 
By the love of the cross, Your Jesus

Hey You! Yes, You! Stand Still, Laddie! Director of Records 

bacf to tiie gooHld days (pre-1984), 1 teU you, they read like fireside chats or as 
thoU Se7re blabbering on the telephone. Hey, like, it wasn't deep, you know, 
rit w wVat you're all looking madly through the paper for. You want to know 
what happens to Bill the Cat. WeU, I know. But I'm not teUing. 

It's OK though. Really. This is what happens when you take someone who hasn t 
slept for 36 hours and prop him in front of the typewriter. 

I'm r^ad about sometiiing. The Oct. 11, 1984, issue of the Southern Accent had 
'•A(^ Amiiversary Issue" sprawled across the front. THIS year is the 40tii. year, 
not •84-'85. Stole our thunder, it did. Happy anmversary to me. 

Even if you spend every other weekend of the year at your great-aunt s, stay around 
this coming weekend for the TOUCH Mime. It wiU be the best show on campus this 
school year, I do believe. 
"Enough, enough," I hear you cry. 

Dear Editor: 

It seems that "Name Witliheijnl 
doesn't realize that one evening of cram, f 
ming usually doesn't make or break you 
If you haven't studied all semester, wk j 
should you think one evening will do til I 
trick? It also seems that "Nautl 
Withheld" doesn't realize that he or sb, I 
isn't forced to participate in |[,J 
"jailhouse viewing." The evening to,! 
Open House is limited to two hours lo I 
give you a break from studies. No onei I 
told that she must open her room bJ 
viewing, nor is anyone told that he otslj| 
must spend the two hours roaming n J 
illustrious halls of Thatcher. The choial 
is yours, and if you can't make the choial 
to study when you should.. .seems loni| 
that makes it a personal problem!

The measure is part of the Senate version

Lobbyists Fear Aid Cut 


jiderson Lecture Series: Frank Abagnale signs autographs after speech. 

letired Con-Man Packs Ackerman 

(CPS)— Congress' new budget- 
baJancing bill, passed in December, could 
mean student aid soon may be cut by as 
much as 60 percent, some college lob- 
byists here warn. 

The first round of cuts is due March 
1. Various sources estimate the first 
round could mean decreases of anywhere 
from two to 40 to 60 percent in all stu- 
dent aid programs. 

The new law, usually called the 
Gramm-Rudman law after senators 
Philip Gramm (R-Tex) and Warren Rud- 
man (R-NH), who co-sponsored it, forces 
the federal government to balance its 
budget by 1991. 

But in doing so, Congress is not allow- 
ed to cut spending for Social Security, 
some welfare programs, and many 
defense programs, or to pay off the 
federal debt. 

So, unless the government tries to help 
balance the budget by raising some taxes, 
education programs will be tempting 
fiscal targets, lobbyists say. 

Just how deep the first round of cuts 
will be is open to debate. 

„ Jl the seats in Ackerman Auditorium 
ire full, as were the aisles and the stage, 
len Frank Abagnale spoke last Thurs- 
% for the first of the E.A. Anderson 
[cture Series of 1986. Mr. Abagnale, 
Ihor of an autobiographical bestseller, 
Jch Me If You Can, talked about his 
k of white collar crime that began after 

his parents divorced when he was 16. His 
second topic was fraud prevention. Ac- 
cording to Mr. Abagnale, the easiest way 
for a crook to steal money from you is 
with one of your deposit slips. "It's more 
important to tear up your old deposit 
slips than it is your checks," he said.

Writing Contest 
Solicits Entries 

The Southern College Writing Com- 
mittee is announcing its sixth aimual 
writing contest for spring semester 1986. 
This year there will be three categories: 
one for library research papers, one for 
critical-analytical papers, and one for 
scientific research papers. Two prizes will 
be awarded in each category: $50 for first 
place and $20 for the runner-up. 

The library research paper category is 
open to typed research papers of 
1,200-7,500 words that were written for 
a class assignment during the 1985-86 
school year. The critical-analytical 
category mcludes a wide variety of 
writing done for class: critical book 
reviews, analysis papers, investigative 
reporting and journalistic essays, inter- 
pretive case studies, and positions papers. 
Entries should be between three and ten 
pages in length. The scientific research 
paper category encompasses reports of 
original empirical research. These would 
normally come from classes m the 
science, behavioral science, or nursing 
divisions. Examples would be reports of 
laboratory experimentation, survey and 
correlation studies, and field studies. 
These should be at least five pages long. 

Registration forms are available at 
each division office and at the Student 
Center along with further description of 
the various categories. Papers must be 
submitted by April 10. Prizes will be 
presented at Awards Chapel on April 17.

Lectures at S.C. 

Two presentations will be given in 
Collegedale on Thursday, January 23, by 
Nancy Hightshoe, one of the first women 
in America to become a uniformed patrol 
officer. . 

"Out of Harm's Way" will be her title 
at 1 1 :05 a.m. for the student convocation 
in the Physical Education Center at 
Southern CoUege of Seventh-day Adven- 
tisu. Her presentation aims to develop 
the awareness that could prevent assault. 

At the regular Anderson Lecture Senes 
time, 8 p.m., Ms. Hightshoe will speak 
on "Charisma— Developing Your 
Leadership AbiUties." This will be m the 
E A Anderson Business Seminar Room 
on the third floor of Brock HaU on the 
Collegedale campus. Both programs are 
in the 1986 E. A. Anderson Lecture 
Series, presented by SC's Business Ad- 
ministration Department, and the public 
is welcome. 

Ms. Hightshoe designed the St. Louis 
County Rape Squad. As a detective with 
that unit, she made more than 125 felony 
arrests resulting in convictions totaling 
more than 1 ,000 years of sentences. Smce 
1975 she has been counselling assault vic- 
tims and their families. She holds 
master's degrees in human relations and 
in administration of justice. 

By calculating current Gramm- 
Rudman targets and the escalating 
deficit, Susan Frost of the Committee for 
Education Funding figures the U.S. 
Department of Education will have to 
shave all its college program funding by 
4.6 percent in March and another 30 per- 
cent in October. 

Educators are reluctant to specify just 
how many students would be forced out 
of school by the cuts, or to estimate how 
much schools would have to raise tuition 
to compensate for them. 

They do, however, think the cuts will 
hurt badly. 

"Consequences of Gramm-Rudman's 
possible 40 to 60 percent cuts in higher 
education (by next fall) will be absolute- 
ly disastrous to milUons of current and 
future students," observes Kathy Ozer, 
legislative director of the U.S. Student 
Association (USSA). 

The same pressure to reduce spendmg 
could also force Congress to reduce col- 
lege program funding in the upcoming 
Higher Education Act of 1985, which sets 
spendmg levels through 1990, adds Pat 
Smith, legislative analyst for the 
American Council on Education (ACE). 
Under the new law, Ozer estimates 
Congress will have to trim about $11.7 
billion from the 1986 fiscal year budget 
by March. 

If it doesn't. President Reagan would 
"sequester" funds, decidmg by hunself 
which programs not to fund in order to 
save money. 

Based on what he's done before, the 
president would seem likely to cut educa- 
tion programs to do it. 

In each year since 1980, President 
Reagan has proposed cutting federal stu- 
dent aid programs by as much as 50 per- 
cent. Congress historically has rejected 
those cuts, choosing instead to freeze 
most programs at or near their 1981-82 
levels for the past three years. 

The federal government will spend 
about $8 billion on student aid programs 
this year— about the same as m fiscal 
1985 before a supplemental appropriation 
bill funding Guaranteed Student Loans 

After March, the Gramm-Rudman law 
then mandates the government to fmd 
ways to keep reducing the federal deficit 
by $36 billion a year through the rest of 
this decade. 

One way to reduce the deficit, of 
course, is to raise taxes. 

"More and more people are talking 
about a tax increase. It will be the only 
way," reports Tom Gleason, a 
spokesman for Sen. Gary Hart (D-Co). 
"I don't think there is a proclivity 
toward cuts," agrees Bob Sneed, an aide 
to Sen. Ernest HoUings (D-SC). "Most 
people think drastic reductions" without 
accompanying tax hikes "will be dead on 
arrival" in Congress. 

Gleason thinks some conservative 
senators will endorse tax hikes if they help 
spare the defense budget from cuts, 
though he doesn't expect them to pubUcly 
support the hikes untU after next fall's 

Ozer worries that fall may be too late 
for many student aid programs. 

"Clearly cuts will be triggered before 
possible tax legislation," she says. 

Student Recruitment 
Bonus Successful 

Over Christmas break, nine students 
and one faculty member took advantage 
of the recruitment bonus offer. This plan 
awards $250 to everyone who recruits a 
new student who enrolls and stays a 
minimum of one semester.

Fenton Forest Handles a Drought 

On'^X".S'e1nFenton Fores, there was some 
dan^e^oXercrowding. There had been a (bought for

Wise Old Owl called a meeting for all to discuss he 
problem. The Ground Hogs sought to project about Uie 
fmure weather patterns and how they would affect the 
food supply and there simply was no guarantee tha 
iSi would get better. In fact, most of the research that 
hadbeen done revealed that though there were some 
things that could be done to increase the food supply, 
enough could not be done to provide a long-range solu- 
Uon to the problem. It became apparent that if they did 
not act now. some of the inhabitants of Fenton Forest 
would soon be starving. 

King, it turns out. never got less than

BU will display the transcripts at its 
library in honor of the new federal holi. 
day celebrating the slain civil rights 

Not wanting to resort 
to genocide, the in- 
habitants decided to 
form a committee. 

What it all boiled down to was that some of the in- 
habitants simply had to move to another location to 
relieve the pressure on the forest. But the big question 
was. Who would move? No one was interested in leav 
ing the forest community, especially when there was no 
guarantee that it would be any better in some other forest 
at some other location. The inhabitants had learned that 
Fenton Forest was not the only place that the drought 
was being experienced. 

There was still no way around the fact that the popula- 

Iv^d that those who were the strongest and biggest 
hoTld Tuy in the forest because nobody could puh 
hem out a'nyway. That was selfish, the others s-^^^^^

rid orot'^ear they could probably save the ent^e 
s^irrel population because aU the squirrels combmed 
hardlv ate as much as one bear. 

Ra&e th^ using size as a criterion. Tommy the tur- 
tleluggested that they allow those who had hved in the 
forest'die longest to stay there b^use they had Jheir 
homes weU estaBUshed and were there &st. Of course 
you would say that," said Freddy the Fox. "You have 
been here for a long time. You are just trymg to look 
out for your own skin, or shell!" 

"What about aUowing those who are makmg tne 
greatest contribution to stay?" said Billy Beaver, who 
knew that no one but him would be able to mamtam 
the dam that saved the forest as much water as it had 
during the time of the drought. 

Sammy the skunk said, "What about us?I? We would 
have nowhere to go. Many of you would be accepted 
in other places, but nobody wants us." 

So the committee discussion went on and on for many 
days. They were not able to come to any consensus as 
each Fenton Forest inhabitant sought to set the deport- 
ment criteria so as not to include himself. 

Finally, Wise Old Owl called them all together again 
and said, "Not to decide on this issue is to decide for 
the eventual destruction of the forest and our 

It was Freddy the Fox who then said, "We can't 
decide, and so I suggest that you decide for us." Wise 
Old Owl didn't want to do that, but to save Fenton 
Forest he did. And so Fenton Forest weathered the 
drought and came out of it a stronger forest. 

VandeVere Appointed

0y Turn/Stan Hickman 



last semester Moni Gennick wrote a "My Turn" ar- 
lilile on the issue of students leaving church early to get 
Id the cafeteria before the after-church rush. Her argu- 
Bent was good, the humor in it even better, but 
lomething didn't click. I would like to quote Miss Gen- 
llclc at length. 

"A student who leaves in the middle of a religious ser- 
lice for the petty reason of racing to the cafe defeats 
Ihe purpose of Christianity in his life, defeats the pur- 
pose of the service attempting to instruct or inspu'e him, 

' ! a disruptive element into a holy atmosphere, sets

l^ethoH ° ''^"f'cation is proper. I find no fault with 
I "^ °f verification or enforcement, but I feel 

that the school's policy of requiring Sabbath School and 
church attendance is a mistake and that it hurts the in- 
terests of the church. 

The Southern CoUege catalog, under "Statement of 
Educational Philosophy and Objectives," says that the 
school's goal is to develop the whole person, the 
spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical sides. On the 
spiritual side, the catalog states, "ReUgious mstruction 
m the classroom, reUgious convocations, and a variety 
of opportunities for Christian fellowship and service pro- 
vide the context m which students are encouraged to 
make their own commitment to these ideals." The school 
does provide an atmosphere in which students can make 
that choice. We have chapels that are complete worship 
services. We have worships in our dorm daily, and we 
have our Bible classes. Is it necessary to go beyond that 
and to also demand attendance at church on Sabbath? 
If in all of these other opportunities the student fails to 
be inspired, how is Sabbath School and church suppos- 
ed to succeed? 

To me, that is not the central issue. We believe the 
Sabbath is a special day, set aside uniquely to honor God 
and to come in a special way closer to His presence. We 
hold it as so special that we attempt to leave behind all 
of the other things that we do in the first six days of 
the week. Yet when it comes to required, forced wor- 
ship we do the very same thing. Friday night and Sab- 
bath evening are both part of the worship requirement. 
Are we not beUttling the Sabbath by forcing attendance 
the same as we do on the other days of the week? 

We believe that God chose the method of our redemp- 
tion, the death of Christ, as the only way to provide our 
salvation and to prove His character to the universe. He 
could have forced our obedience in the begimung, he 
could even now frighten us into obedience, but He 
doesn't. He wants His followers to come to Him and 
love Him willingly. The Sabbath day is a weekly sym- 
bolism of our coming to Hun, coming in love and m 
freedom. It is wrong to force others to be in God's house 
on this special day when their hearts are not there. From 
what this church has taught me, I conclude that it can- 
not please God to have unwilUng hearts in His special 
house of worship on His special day. 

In the end of time we believe that we will be persecuted 
for being unwilling to worship on Sunday. Men with 
great power will attempt to force us to do that which 
is against our will. Yet here where we have the power, 
we force students, against their will, into our chuch on 
the Sabbath day. This school is in many ways a 
microcosm of the world outside. Should we not set an 
example by teaching what is right, doing what is right, 
and encouraging but not forcing all (our own 
uninterested students included) to join us freely and 
share in the blessmgs of a people worshipping a lovmg 
and personal God? 

Required worship should stop at the edge of the Sab- 
bath. During the week we have our academic re- 
quirements and our worship requirements. Sabbath wor- 
ship is too unportant and too special to be made a re- 
quirement. Let the Sabbath be free, let the church ser- 
vice be a place where all hearts are united m worship, 
where no heart is bitter and resentful, where each per- 
son who attends is making a statemem that he loves God 
and wants to worship Him.

Dear Friends, 

I can't believe that my first term is 
almost over. My students are really sweet 
to me. In class I constantly have to pinch 
myself to keep from laughing because it's 
so funny to watch my students' facial ex- 
pressions as they are trying to pronounce 
the words. I love it here and really feel 
at home. Each day I discover more and 
more about the people, their customs, 
superstitions, and way of life. 

I started Bible studies with my five 
Korean brothers. Even though their 
English is very limited, I know that the 
Lord will bless. I am just thrilled that they 
want to know more about God I 

Special love to my Mom and Dad in 
Tennessee, and my sister in Ebeye. 
Your Friend,

Bthin this area are one graduate school, 
! seminary, three senior colleges, 23 
hschools, and 131 elementary schools. 
. Sahly's resume has a long list of 
Jifications which may have influenc- 
he Board's decision to call him. In 
63 he received his Master's in Educa- 
Jial Administration from Andrews 
Eversity in Berrien Springs, Michigan, 
1 later received his Doctorate from the

Advise Students 
Against Teaching 

Forty-five percent of the nation's college 
teachers think this is a bad time to start an 
academic career, a national survey by the 
Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of 
Teaching has found. 

And, in a separate survey by the Educa- 
tional Testing Service, 51 percent of the 
teachers from kmdergarten through college 
would "hesitate" before advising a student to 
choose a teaching c^eer, 

About a quarter of the nation's teachers, 
moreover, are "very" or "fairly" Ukely to 
leave the teaching profession by 1990, a poU 
released by Metropohtan Life Insurance over 
the holidays said. 

Most teachers— at all levels— say they are 
disheartened by low salaries, shoddy academic 
standards, badly-prepared students, and 
Umited chances for career advancement.

about now, and so milUons of words «'Ube used as ex 
perts and non-experts guess and surmise the exact cause 
of the accident There is something cathartic about seek- 
ing a reason " is as if in finding the reason we have 
sarisfactorily resolved this tragedy. It is rather Ike 
"tig a family in the funeral home: there 's not a lot 
to Slk about, but there seems to be some catharsis m 
asking and teUing how the person died. 
Soft is appropriate that we focus on this tragic event, 

and naturally other tragedies will be eclipsed in the pro 1 
cess. But let us not allow the occasional spectac\% 
tragedy to distract us from the daily living tragedies that 
go on around us all the time. It sometimes concerns me 
that we are willing to expend large amounts of out l 
resources preparing for the spectacular disaster and do I 
nothing about the daily disasters that are happening in I 
Chattanooga and in every community all the time. Majy I 
more people are anxious to help when the tornado passes I 
through town than when a wave of unemployment passes 
through town. ! 

So it is appropriate that we mourn this tragic evem i 
of the death of these seven people. The pathos of theii 
dreams of space flight being crushed in a ball of fireoi 
national television certainly is the stuff emotional movies I 
are made of. but let us mourn in perspective. As we 1 
grieve for these families and our space program, let us I 
not forget the pathos and pain next door. It could be I 
the student struggling to get through school with no 1 
parental help, the student who has a drug problem, or I 
the family unable to keep warm this winter. Don't use l 
up all your emotional energy mourning for those that I 
you can't help, leaving no energy for those you can help, 1 
So when is tragedy most tragic? In a fireball over tkt I

Michelle Meidinger. a freshman ac- ing her about her party 
counting major at Southern College, is 
one of many young women who have 
received anonymous phone calls late at 
night. In Michelle's case, the caller was 
not quite anonymous; he identified 
himself as her boyfriend and pretended 
to be sick. 

"It certainly wasn't my boyfriend," 
Michelle comments. "He never tells me 
when he's sick." 

Michelle isn't sure how the caller found 
out her name or her boyfriend's name, 
but she thinks he may have gotten the in- 
formation from a mutual acquaintance. 
So far he has called her about three times, 
and according to Michelle, she talks to 
him for "as short a time as possible." 
Other women have received different 
kinds of calls. One woman received 
several calls from a man who claimed to 
be attending the University of Tennesssee 
at Chattanooga. According to her 
rememberance. he always called 
"obscenely early" in the morning. "He 
never said anything that wasn't perverted 
except good-bye," she recalls. 

Kim Fuqua, an art major at SC, cites 
another example of this phenomenon.

According to many women 

at SC, the midnight callers are 

a common occurrence over 

the school's telephone wires. 

Some call "just to talk." 

Others pretend to be taking 

surveys (one young man took 

a fashion survey-at two in the 

morning). Others are 

perverted. And still others 

merely seem to be seeking friendship. 
Through research, the identity oif one 

"midnight caller" has been traced. He 

agreed to be interviewed under the 

stipulation that he remain as nameless in 

print as he attempts to be over the 
telephone. While most callers claim to be 
students at UTC, this man attends 
Southern College. "I've been in- 
dependenfly called the Mystery Man," he 

"I feel like this idea originated with 
me," he adds. "I never heard of anyone 
else calling girls anonymously-I just did 
it on my own." 

According to this man, he calls girls 
just to get to know them. "I wanted to

After a series of phone calls, he ar- 
ranges to meet the girl somewhere on 
campus. The success rate of his 
anonymous forays has been, as he puts 
it, "As varied as dating the girl I

up when he puts a lot of time into it and

He says that his 
calls are never 
perverted and that 
he's only called up a 
girl who was dating

The American 



The American 


The American dream is to work hard, make a lot of 
money, and then retire early and take it easy. This 
philosophy of Ufe indicates a dislike of work and a desire 
to get It out of the way as soon as possible, as well as 
a desire to be rich. Although this philosophy is logical. 
It IS an over-simplified version of what life really ought 
to be. Just as we are creatures with "two brains," one 
devoted largely to logic, speech, and analysis and the 
other to the artistic, holistic, and emotional, life is a com- 
plex process which is both logical and hoUstic. If the 
American way of Ufe does not utilize both of the 
"brains" that we have, it will limit us to living in a much 
smaller capacity than we are capable of. 

Conscious Ufe is a real and yet unsolvable paradox 
between its seemingly exclusive parts. Both logic and 
emotion are necessary for Ufe, a fact that was overlooked 
in the creation of the philosophy of the American dream, 
which attempts to be only logical for the first fifty years 
and then fuUy emotional for the last twenty years. 

For the first fifty years of life, Americans are striv- 
ing toward the goal of material success. They rush 
through college so that they can get a weU-paying job 
and make "good" money. Out of college they work hard 
to make enough money to keep up with theu- neighbors 
and still save enough so that they can retire early and 
spend the end of their Ufe in ease. By focusing their at- 
tention on success and surviving, they lose sight of the 
holistic properties of Ufe and become addicted to action. 
They are not really happy, as a person can easily asser- 
tain by Ustening to them grumble about their homework, 
classes, jobs, and shortage of time in the midst of many 

things that need to be done. How could they be happy? 
They were created with a mind capable not only of sur- 
vival and success but also capable of the hoUstic reaUns 
of Ufe: communication with other people and God, ap- 
preciation of nature and art, and philosophical think- 
ing. With the hoUstic capabiUties of the mind largely ig- 
nored, they live an incomplete and unrealistic Ufe. 

At the end of life, when they have made then- Uttle 
fortune, they prepare to settle down and let the part of 
their brain that has been dormant come forth and Uve. 
This sounds good but does not work. How can a per- 
son expect to suppress a part of his brain for the ma- 
jority of life and then suddenly decide to use it? It has 
taken fifty years for his logical powers to grow to the 
state they have reached and now he wants his hoUstic 
powers to become developed in a few short years? Even 
if this were possible it would not be good, since it would 
be no better to be whoUy hoUstic than to be completely 
logical. Life is a complex combination of the two, and 
if either one is left out Ufe is greatly hurt. If a person 
just takes it easy, having no reason to strive for any goals 
(which have aU been reached early in Ufe), he wiU begin 
to die physically as weU as mentally. 

If the American dream is to Uve fifty years being par- 
tial towards the logical part of the brain, leaving the 
hoUstic part to die, and then suddenly switching the 
whole thing and being primarily hoUstic the remainder 
of Ufe, Americans are cheating themselves. They should 
reconsider the words of Henry David Thoreau. 

"I wished to Uve deUberately...and not, when I came 
to die, discover that I have not lived."

Time Out 


By Dave Notteko, 

Krall 53, Johnson 49 

Barry KraU's team squeaked by 
Johnson. 53 to 49, in B-league acuon 
Thursday. In a series of last nunute 
charges led by co-captain Estep (who had 
16 points) and captain Johnson (who had 
12) Johnson's team tried to take the 
game in the fmal five minutes, but it was 
not to be. Greg Covrig led Krall's team 
with 17 points, while Barry Krall fur- 
thered the winning cause with 10 pomts 
of his own. 

Grys 101, Green 83 

Greg Grisso scored 21 and Mike Flynn 
led aU scorers with 30 as Grys' team 
stomped David Green's team 101 to 83. 
Green made it close at the end of the fu-st 
half with an 18 to 3 scoring spurt to make 
the score 43-42 in Green's favor, but 
Grys' team scored 6 points in a row to 
retake the lead, and then never looked 
back. Steve Thompson led Green with 20 
while Dave Nottelson had 18 in a losing 

Green 43, Beardsley 21 

In a terribly one-sided game, the 
"Green Machine," as they are now 
known, more than doubled Beardsley s 
score on their way to a 22-point victory. 
Green and co-captain Gibbons shared the 
lead with 10 points each, even after Green 
missed 6 consecutive lay-ups. Beardsley s 
team just never got on track, and after 
the first 10 minutes of the game they had 
fallen behind for good. 

Dedeker 64, Hernandez 44 

Co-captain Dan Jensen hammered in 
25 points and all but owned the boards 
as Dedeker beat Hernandez by 20 points. 
Dedeker's team gave a new meaning to 
the word "fast break" with their quickly- 
paced run-and-gun game. Jay Dedeket 
and Tim Prussia each scored 10 to help 
the winning cause. Hernandez showed the 
way with 10 points, but his team cut their 
own throats as they failed to connect on 
11 of 15 free throws and missed many 
open-court opportunities.

In this down-to-the-wire A-league 
game, Brian Paradis fired in 19 points to 
give his team the victory. Manzella's team 
had the lead for most of the game, but 
it was close all the way. Bob Folkenberg 
pumped in 4 of his 10 points to help Wurl 
take the lead and Jim Neighbors had 4 
of his 12 to hold off a late surge by 
ManzeUa. Eric Clemons had 15 and Mike 
Waller had 14 to pace Manzella's team. 

Hershberger 98, Green 70 

Bob Rodgers, who ended the game 
with 26 points, dominated the game with 
59'!?ii shooting while fellow teammate 
Brent Barney went 8 for 12 on his way 
to a 16-point afternoon as Hershberger 
mauled hapless Green, 98 to 70. Her- 
shberger had five men in double figures, 
including Steve Carlson, who went 7 for 
10 tor 14 points. Green's team, who have 
lost three of their last four, were led by 
Henry Coleman who had 16.

Dear Editor: 

Your editorial of January 30, denoun- 
cing the Chamber Series, is most in- 
teresting. Had you given me the courtesy 
of an interview, rather than asking me a 
couple of questions during the reception 
which I was hosting, I would have been 
happy to schedule one and would have 
supplied the information which I am now 
presenting. A responsible interview for an 
editorial might not have changed your 
opinions, but at least it would have had 
the fairness of accurate facts and balan- 
cing ideas. 

First, let me say that the criteria for 
selecting programs is not whether you lik- 
ed or understood the program, any more 
than the criteria for the business seminar 
topics is that I like and understand them 
all. In selecting programs, we try to pre- 
sent a wide range of different types of 
performances to meet the needs of the 
varied interests of those students, facul- 
ty, and community people interested in 
cultural activities which present a high 
_ level of serious music performances, 
b Having made the above statements, let 
me present the financial facts. 

This year, the contracted cost for the 
four Chamber Series programs is $5,650. 
Of this total, we have received grants of 
SI ,625 from the Tennessee Arts Commis- 
sion. We will also have sold some $400 
in tickets before the series ends. The total 
cost to the school for this year's series, 
then, will be approximately $3,625. 
These are the programs this year and 
their approximate attendance.

TOTAL 570 

The overall cost to Southern College 
per person in attendance at a Chamber 
Series concert this year is approximately 
$6.35, not $17.50 as you stated. Without 
the TAC grants, the approximate cost per 
person is $9.91. Specifically, the cost to 
Southern College per person in atten- 
dance at the Vertrelle Cameron Concert 
and Workshop was $6.53. To attend 
workshops of die caliber our students are 
exposed to by Chamber Series artists is 
a real educational bonus at a minimum 

Taking the broad view of the campus: 
for the cost of about 35-40 cents per stu- 
dent per month, all students have the op- 
portunity to enhance their education and 
enrich their lives by choosing to attend 
one or more of the Chamber Series 

I am sure we could cut educational 
enrichment activities on campus. In so 
doing, we must realize we could also 
significantly diminish the quality of 
education offered, and thus the appeal 
which our school has to quality, 
culturally-oriented students, even though 
several of them might receive a $1000 
scholarship if these opportunities were 
not available. 

A quality education goes beyond the 
classroom into the activities and enriching 
experiences which are vital to an alert and 
aUve college campus. We not only need 
to learn about how to gain quantity in 
life, but more importantly, how to live a 
quaUty Ufe. The spirit of man is fed 
continued on p. 8 

I could see faculty driving their 1952 
Chevrolets onto the campus and parking 
in the tiny lot at the north end of the ad 
building. There wasn't room for them all. 
Many of them walked to class. 

More pictures. We hurried through our 
crowded morning schedules because 
academy students took over the 
classrooms at 1:00 p.m. We might find 
an afternoon class, but they were rare. 
Academy boys lived with college boys in 
old Talge Hall, but most of them were 
relegated to the basement where mold 
formed quickly on clothes and shoes. 
I looked to the left. The grounds 
department. It used to be the broom- 
shop. Daily races with the clock on piece- 
time wages; five-hour shifts beginning at 
7:00 a.rh. and ending at 6:00 p.m.; fifty- 
five-hour work weeks dining the summer. 
At the end of some of those hot July days 
we had sweated off several pounds; our 
stomachs had lost a couple of inches since 
we had returned from lunch and our 
pants sagged loosely around our 
waists— there was hardly anything left to 
hold them up. Our hands always had a 
green cast. 

Wow, things have changed. Buildings 
have come down, others have gone up. 
New roads. Swarms of people. The 
academy has its own buildng on the other 
side of the valley, no less. 

Brock Hall 324— that's my office. I 
don't have a radio on my desk so I can 
Usten to the Classic Experience. I don't 
remember if all of the teachers even had 
an office in 1952. A student is waiting for 
me. He's married. He needs to drop a 
class— financial problems. His hands are 
green. He works long hours to keep bread 
and butter on the table. His kids need 

A half-hour later, someone else pokes 
her head in the office. Could you explain 
what you meant when you said... Sure. 
Before we finish our discussion, another 
student comes by. / wasn 'I in class the last

"Is the cost of education too high?" 

"No!" reply those who provide the 
physical facilities, the campus environ- 
ment, and the teaching services. Facilities 
at SC and most other campuses are not 
lavish; the spiritual, cultural, social, and 
recreational activities are not excessive; 
and the teachers, administrators, and 
staff are not overpaid. Often, in fact, not 
enough salary is paid to attract the best 
people into the educational world, nor are 
adequate facilities and programs secured 
to meet the needs of students. 

The real problem, who is to pay for all 
the desirable aspects of a college campus 
and how, must be solved. Most parents 
with several children say that they can't 
afford it and students with only part-time 
jobs are even less able to cover the total 

Traditionally, American schools have 
been funded from a variety of sources. 
Public institutions have received large 
amounts of funds from the government, 
which in turn come from the taxpayer. 
Private schools tap government grants, 
alumni, foundations, philanthropic in- 
dividuals, and others for outright grants 
or for endowments which earn usable 
funds. These funds may be distributed to 
individual students to help pay their 
school bill, or may be given to the col- 
lege as operating subsidies so that tuition 
rates can be lowered. 

Australian College Clips 
Phone Connection 

Telecom, the Australian phone com- 
pany, has found the phone on the Wagga 
Campus of the Munay Institute in 
Australia on which students went on a 
free international phone spree in late fall. 

In sbc hours, students called counter- 
parts at UCLA to compare class customs, 
a former classmate in Alaska, and several 
residents of Miami to discuss "Miami 

Telecom says it has fixed the phone, 
which now won't work until customers 
feed it 20 cents. . 

The challenge for sponsors, the govern- 
ment boards, and the school ad- 
ministrators is to find the right balance 
between all these sources of funds so that 
each can do its fair share. 

Seventh-day Adventist colleges have 
traditionally placed a large part of the 
financial burden on students and parents 
in the form of relatively high tuition, and, 
in this sense, education costs are high. 
Only recently have they attempted to shift 
this cost to the other groups. But tradi- 
tion dies hard, and in Adventist circles the 
groups are slow to shoulder their part of 
the burden of high education costs. 

One way to cut costs is to increase pro- 
ductivity of teachers and staff. Full time 
equivalent student to teacher ratios have 
fallen to 12:1 or even lower in some 
Adventist colleges. This ration must be 
increased to the more normal 15 or 16 to 
one figure. And this process is painful. 
Good teachers may no longer be needed; 
desirable but small academic programs 
may have to be cut; and small but 
enriching classes may not be affordable. 
Quality, not quantity, must be the 

It is rumored that Walla Walla College 
may cut 40 staff members. LaSierra may 
cut 35. Andrews University has appointed 
a special commission to study and make 
recommendations regarding the cost ef- 
fectiveness of the various academic pro- 
grams on its campus. Southern College 
administrators are not exempt. Many 
long hours have been spent searching for 
ways to save costs and cut the budget- 
all for one purpose— to make college 
education affordable. 

To the extent that Adventist education 
can fmd solutions to the productivity pro- 
blem and to the degree that alternate 
sources of funds can be developed, just 
so will the cost of Adventist education not 
be too high.

Study Botany 
This May in 
the Smokies 

By D. Houck 

Do you appreciate wildflowers, trees, 
forests, and mountains, and enjoy cam- 
ping, hikmg, and mountain climbing? 
Then this field course is for you. Ex- 
perience the exhilaration of viewing the 
world from the Chimney Tops, the Jum- 
poff, Siler's Bald, or Mt. LeConte, while 
listening for a raven's call. Enjoy the hik- 
ing trails along rushing streams to 
cascading waterfalls. 

The Great Smoky Mountains National 
Park has a world-renowned variety of 
flowering plants with peak blooming 
period in May. In mountain coves are 
preserved the world's finest examples of 
temperate deciduous forest, and the 
highest mountain elevations are covered 
with conifer forests like those of central 
Canada. This national forest sanctuary is 
not far away, and it is an ideal location 
for field botanical studies, wildflower 
identification, tree study, and investiga- 
tion of the many types of forest. 

Systematic Field Botany (BIOL 410), 
a three-semester-hour course, is planned 
for next May 5-23. We will be camping 
in several different campgrounds of the 
park, both in Tennessee and North 
Carolina, to enable us on one-day hikes 
to visit different mountains and forest 
associations with their characteristic 
plants and animals. You will learn to 
identify wildflowers and trees around 
you. Then later, wherever you go where 
wildflowers and trees grow, you will be 
among friends. Students will maintain a 
plant observation list throughout the 
course. Lecture-discussions will include 
the history and development of the park, 
forest types, methods of plant identifica- 
tion, and plant classification with em- 
phasis on plant families. 

Registration for the course will be as 
usual for a first summer term course. 
Fees for camping and food for the period 
from May 5 to 23 will be $150. Transpor- 
tation and tents will be provided. 
Everyone interested should sign the list 
in Dr. Duane Houck's office and leave 
a $30 deposit before April 7. Space is 
limited, so reserve your place early.

What Is WSMC 
^All About? 

By Olson Perry 
On a recent flight from Atlanta I sat 
next to a gentleman from Chattanooga 
who introduced himself to me. We shared 
the regular amenities, but when I told hrai 
I worked at WSMC, he beamed a wide 

You mean FM90.5?" 
"Yes, that's right. You must be a new 
Ustener, or you Usten carefully." 
"Why's that?" he responded. 
"WeU, most people stUl refer to us as 
WSMC instead of FM90.5." 

"I've been listening to that station ever 
since it started back around 1?«), 1 
believe. We had just moved here from 
Chicago. You people out there did three 
things recenUy which really made a dif- 
ference. Like telling us where to find you, 
FM90 5, you know, instead of merely 
giving your name, WSMC. When you ac- 
quired a dual city license, you identified 
more with Chattanooga, and making up 
your mind to stick with one format has 
really helped me and many others know 
exactly where you're coming from." 

Our conversation continued another 
twenty minutes, and by the time we land- 
ed, I had answered several questions con- 
cerning Adventist beliefs. 

This brief encounter helped to 
underscore in my mind the uniqueness of 
FM90.5's mission to the greater com- 
munity, and the impact it is making on 
many lives. Of course, I can't guarantee 
that this conversation would not have 
been any different without' my friend's 
positive reaction to the radio station; 
however, I believe that his exposure to us 
through the station is responsible for 
arousing his interest. 

Many have responded to our station 
since the major changes in January 1985, 
most of whom now feel we have 
graduated from an inconsistent program- 
ming sound, in which we attempted to 
please everyone, to a more professional, 
consistent approach. As one listener said 
recently, "I now know exactly what you 
do, and you do it well. There was a time 
when I had to guess which mood you 
were in— classical, gospel, easy listening, 
or soft religious rock." 

We recognize that people tend to listen 
to that which they like. For example, 
gospel music lovers listen to gospel music, 
and those who like rock music listen to 
that. We have chosen to broadcast a 
classical format because it was the 
"safest" format for us to air, because 
there was a need for such a format, and 
because those who listen to classical 

music are the most ignored group of 
listeners as far as our church s 
evangeUstic thrust is concerned. 

Our goal is to share the positive aspects 
of ChrUtianity in a "on-threatemng pro- 
fessional radio format. Theros a p a^ 
for the hard-sell, desk-pounding, d^ec 
evangelistic approach. However, that is 
not WSMC. It takes various types ot ap- 
proaches to share the good news We 
have chosen one of tiiose approaches. 

Another way of putting it is to com- 
pare us with the health seminars and fairs 
which our church sponsors, or with the 
Community Services work. These sources 
make important contacts with the com- 
munity. These positive seeds are sown 
and the Holy Spirit takes over from there. 
Other examples for comparison are the 
accountant who shares his faith by plac- 
ing people ahead of figures, the public 
school teacher who reflects an understaxi- 
ding attitude to her associates, and the 
engineer who aUows Christ to use hun m 
the workplace. 

Of course, WSMC has its critics. 
"Hard-sell evangelism through sermons 
and gospel music is the only way to reach 
people," according to some. Others feel 
that "FM90.5 should be a broadcast 
minisUy to Adventists only, and if the 
station doesn't appeal to us (Adventists) 
it shouldn't exist." Then there are those 
like Edwin P. of Chattanooga who wrote 
that his professor of psychiatry said, 
"Too much preaching is as bad as too 
much operatingl" This is in reference to 
our broadcast of the Sound of Worship, 
It Is Written, the Quiet Hour, the Voice 
of Prophecy, Focus On the Family, and 
other religious programs. "Do we have 
to have Bob Peterson sermonizing, Kay 
Kuzma screaming, and H.M.S. Richards 
rambling every day?" And finally, there 
are still others who feel the Morning Edi- 
tion and All Things Considered do not 
belong on a Christian station because 
these programs are perceived as having 
a liberal bias. 

Despite the negative comments, the 
success of our approach encourages us in 
this unique ministry to the Greater Chat- 
tanooga community, and at the same 
time provides an opportunity for us to 
share our beliefs. 

Suzanne S. recentiy wrote, "I wanted 
to express our family's thanks for... the 
family-oriented and usually religion- 
connected programming in general. My 
husband is a priest of the Anglican 
Church of North America, which wouli) 

nrobably be described as extremely con- 
serva'we: thus, doctrinally I suppose we 
are a long way from Seventh-day Adven- 
ts in sime areas, but we find we have 
a stio^ affinity when it comes to getieral 
fdea°^bout how Christians should live. 
Thrdtfferences occasion useful discus- 
sions with our daughter, while the af- 
fmWes provide reinforcement-an almost 
Weal situation as far as we are concern- 
ed! This is a most refreshing change from 
m w^things had been in Atianta, where 
„Ugion was practicaUy taboo on pubUc 
adL and where family values were 

sneered at, while various unedifying sub 
jects were discussed with approval... Ou 
visitors always ask, 'What's that radb 
station you're listening to?' " 

Finally, Mrs. Lehren recenUy wrote "i 
would like to commend you on that uni 
que blend of classical music and inspita! 
tion that I have not found on any other 
station during our travels. Please let me 
know if your programming is carried bv 
any other station.... Keep up the higb 
standard of your programs. Mav Cmj 

bless you richly. 
That is what FM90.5 WSMC is 


Fear the Lord? 

By Gordon Bietz 
We have always been taught that when 
the Old Testament suggests that we fear 
the Lord it is not suggesting that we be 
scared but is speaking of respect or 
reverence. When Psalm 111:10 says that 
tiie beginnmg of wisdom is tiie fear of the 
Lord we agam interpret that to mean a 
high level of respect. Today we seek to 
play down anything that would cause us 
to fear God. 

In contrast to our present approach our 
Puritan forefathers sought to use real fear 
to motivate the people to service of the 
Lord. Sermons like Jonathan Edwards^ 
"Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" 
would set congregations reeling with anx- 
iety about their relationship with God. I 
would not want to suggest that we return 
to those Puritan days where vivid pictures 
of Hell were painted to motivate people 
to choose heaven. Certainly the love for 
God is a better motivator then being 
scared of Him. 

However, is it possible that we have 
swung on that pendulum too far? Three 

When Adam and Eve strayed from 
God, and God came to them, they ran 
from Him in fear (Gen. 3:8). When Jesus 
comes the second time and people reafe 
that they have not prepared for His com. 
ing they will — in fear— call for the rocks 
and mountains to fall on them (Rev. 
6:16). When God places Himself in ths 
presence of man there is an immediate 
sense of unworthiness. Isaiah cried, 
"Woe is me!, for I am undone; because 
I am a man of unclean Ups, and I dwell 
in the tnidst of a people of unclean lips" 
(Isa. 6:5). And Peter said, "Depart from 
me; for I am a sinful man, Lord" 
(Luke 5:8). 

The sense of the presence of God 
evokes anxiety for the sinner and wellil | 
might, for it is that presence that is con- 
suming fire to evil. 

Sensing the presence of God will pro- 
vide motivation to good behavior. Ills 
true that love for God produces the most 
secure and enduring change of behavioi, 
but Paul himself, after describing tht 
licentiousness in Corinth, appeals to ff 

We have gone overboard to picture | 
God as meek and mild.

hundred times the Bible connects the 
word fear with the majesty of God. Now 
I know that the idea of being scared of 
God doesn't fit the theology of our age. 
We have gone overboard to picture God 
as meek and mild as we mterpret His 
wrath as something less than real wrath 
The Scripture verse says, "Perfect love 
casts out fear" (1 John 4:18). That would 
imply to me that before the perfect love 
was there, there was some fear. And 
possibly that fear may stimulate a per- 
son's search for the perfect love that is 
found in Jesus. Certainly Martin Luther's 
search for a relationship with God went 
through many stages of fear. I don't sug- 
gest that we all need to go through those 
stages as well, but I do suggest that if we 
fmd ourselves outside of God's will in our 
lives a bit of healthy fear may bring 
us back to our search for a relationship 
with Him. 

I don't wish to scare anyone into the 
kingdom, for in fact I don't believe that 
such fear will ever keep anyone there. 
However, I would like to scare some peo- 
ple to stimulate their search for peace 
with God. Some believe that they have 
made their peace with God when in fact 
their picture of God is such that He won't 
do anything to them no matter what they 
do— therefore they are at peace for God 
IS no threat to them. That is not making 
peace with God anymore than making 
peace with the dean is accomplished by 
believing that no matter what you do the 
dean won't bother you.

people died in their sins in the desert, *

Cinderella Education 
Staging Comeback 

February 6. 1986/SOUTHERN ACCENT/5 

By M. Campbell 
Not very long ago, a board member of 
Southern College was preaching that the 
gospel of employment was to be found 
in the medical area. He, along with a host 
of others in the country, convinced a lot 
of people, including Adventist young 
people, that teaching was not where the 
real action and jobs were to be found. 
Now a shortage of teachers is at hand! 
Furthermore, I am here to state that the 
status of education and teaching is not 
only healthy, but within a few years the 
shortage of teachers will be growing more 
critical. There will be jobs aplenty in and 
out of the church's system. 

But who wants to teach? Many feel 
that teachers receive no respect from kids 
or parents or the country! And further- 
more, the salaries are just $2 above the 
poverty level. Some think it not much dif- 
ferent within the SDA education system. 
There is no question that much of this is 
true, but there are changes occurring, and 
the changes are for the better. Within a 
few years, the salaries will increase in the 
public sector of education. The salaries 
now top out at $33,000 per ten-month 
contract in some systems. There will be 
changes in the church's system. Beginn- 
ing salaries at the present in the church's 
system of education are competitive. 

Some can live with the money but not 
with the kids. Many people have not been 
in schools for a number of years, so they 
cannot refute the charge that American 
education is not a jungle. American 
education is getting its house in order, 
and times look good in teaching for the 
next 15 to 20 years. 

But again, who wants to teach? I do! 
Because I like to help and see people 
learn. I am still old-fashioned enough to 
think that a good part of the remunera- 
tion of teaching is wrapped up in service 
to others! If service is not a part of a 
teacher's goals in life, then teaching will 
be miserable at four times the salary. 

With the status of education and the 
teaching profession on the upswing, the 

Department of Education is changing and 
has changed the once-scorned profes- 
sional education classes to meaningful, 
interesting, and, believe it or not, useful. 
Here are some examples. 

1. Infusion of computers in the cur- 
riculum taught as a teaching and ad- 
ministrative tool. 

2. In-depth techniques of classroom 
management and discipline. 

3. Recent graduates have excellent 
records as to classroom management. 

4. Students are required early and late 
experiences in the classrooms in the area. 

5. Classes reflect what is actual being 
taught in the schools. 

That doesn't mean the department has 
arrived. The faculty are continually 

reevaluating the program and courses 
within the context of the needs of the 
teachers. The content and substance of 
the courses are much diferent than they 
were 7 to 10 years ago. 

Being in a small college involves a very 
heavy class load for the faculty during the 
year and the summer. In spite of the load, 
the faculty in the department are active 
giving professional papers, writing for 
professional journals and for textbook 
companies, developing in-service 
workshops, and at times actually teaching 
units in the area schools. 

The brightest days of teaching are 
ahead. The Education Department is con- 
tributing to those days.

"Anythmg that can make women teel 
safer, that's okay with me, but it's not 
our program's first choice," contends 
Linda Markle of the Women's Services 
Center at Ohio State. The center provides 
courses in self defense. 

However, a user "is buying into the 
patriarchal-capitalist system. You are 
paying for the privilege of your 
freedom," Markle maintains.

I wonder what he would have said of 
the 20-year study recently completed by 
AT&T. According to UTC's pohtical 
science department chairman. Dr. Robert 
Swansbrough, "The BeU System's hberal 
arts graduates were promoted faster, were 
rated higher in administrative skills, and 
were found to have more management 
potential that technical graduates. 
Likewise, he reports that Chase Manhat- 
tan Bank "found that about 60 percent 
of its most successful managers had only 
liberal arts BA degrees." 

In his best-selUng autobiography, 
Chrysler president Lee .jacocca says 
frankly that "When my kids asked what 

courses to take, my advice was always to 
get a good liberal education." A recent 
Wall Street Journal article by manage- 
ment teacher John Clemens sums it up: 
"One way or another, before they're 
ready for really big responsibilities, most 
managers wUl have to turn to the great 
books-the _ real literature of 

Is this to say that the ambitious young 
person should abandon his or her 
business, biology, or nursing major to 
study english, history, or the I'ke' Hard- 
ly. People highly trained in specific skiU 
areas are always in demand. 

Yet fmaUy, better-than-average success 
in any field comes down to relationships 
with people, with the top salaries gomg 
to those that can provide wise leadership. 
If we realize that humanities studies of- 
fer 4 000 years of collective wisdom in 
solving human relations problems, we 

caimot be surprised that Mr. Clemens 
rates these books so highly. When my 
sons enter college I am going to insist, like 
Lee lacocca, that they take at least a 
minor in some area of the humanities. 

Of course, colleges like Southern can 
offer a dimension unavailable at lower- 
priced public institutions. Humanities 
teachers here view all books from the pro- 
spective of the greatest Book ever given 
to man. Potentially, at least, we offer not 
the two-dimensional knowledge of pure-

and after having talked to several other 
referees, there are a few things I would 
like to point out. 

First of all, we as referees really do not 
care who wins or who loses. Jerry RusseU 
summed it up best, saying, "When I get 
out there 1 just want to get the game over 
with. I couldn't care less who wins, even 
if my best friend is on one of the teams. 
He's just another player." When we step

Could I Get AIDS? 

Manzella 47, Malone 46 

By E. Hanson 
Since AIDS (Aquired Immune Defi- 
ciency Syndrome) is such a popular topic 
these days, some of you may be complete- 
ly up-to-date on it. Others of you may 
have been too busy studying and socializ- 
ing to be concerned with it. Also you may 
be straight, not use l.V. drugs, and not 
a hemophiliac, so you have not concern- 
ed yourself with the subject. You are right - 
not to be as concerned as some because 
youi risk of contracting AIDS is less than 
one in a million. However, you will want 
to know how to relate yourself to aids pa- 
tients and there are a few facts you will 
want to know since some heterosexuals 
are contracting it. The following is a com- 
pilation of the the information on this 
subject which has crossed my desk 

One is said to have AIDS when one 
aquires any one of many diseases which 
one's immunity cannot handle. 

The virus thought to cause AIDS may 
also produce a milder illness called AIDS- 
Related Complex (ARC), characterized 
by persistent enlargement of the lymph 


Steve Jaecks had 20 points and F. 
Qualley led all scorers with 22 as Russti 
edged Alfaro by seven points. The gan 
was kept close as Ivan Michaelis hadll 
points and Alfaro connected on six of 
seven free throws. Russell never led b' 
Mike Waller had 16 points to hold off ^ofg than five through the final l| 
Malone in tense A-League action Sunday minutes, but they finally extended ij 
night. John Machado led all scorers with ig^jj to lO with a minute and a half to jj 
... Over 16 000 cases of AIDS have 22 points. With two seconds left, Greg Hess fired in six points in the cM 
h«n reoorted'since it began in 1981 in the Machado got the ball and attempted to j^g minutes to make it close, but Russi| 
beenreporteasmceuDcgo. _^ drive but was foolishly fouled by held on to win. 

ManzeUa as time ran out. Machado went 
to the line, but was unable to connect on 
the bonus situation. 

U S. Over half of them'have died. 
... CaUfornia and New York have 
reported 60% of AIDS cases. 
... By 1990, AIDS will be the leading 
cause of death in young males. Ten per- 
cent of the population will have it. 
... Only a small proportion of AIDS 
cases have occurred in people under 25 
years of age. 

... There were 7,540 new cases last 
calendar year. 

The AIDS virus is a very fragile one. 
Common detergents and cleaners (hand- 
soap and Chlorox) will kill it. There is no 
proven case in which AIDS has been 
transmitted by casual contact of any 
kind. These people present no danger to 
those with whom they go to class, share 
bathrooms, eat, work, or sit. Objects 
touched by them need not be feared. The 
only exceptions are objects which might 
be contaminated with blood, especially 
razors, toothbrushes, and tweezers. There 
is no need to be concerned about the safe- 
ty of swimming pools, whirlpools

AIDS. The risk of kissing is uncertain 
but deep or rough kissing increases the 
risk of damaging the tissues of the lips or 
inside of the mouth. 

Normally, the body's protective bar- 
rier, the skin, prevents infection with 
agents like the AJDS virus. If this barrier 
is broken by injury or by needle punture, 
fluids containing the virus may enter the 
body. AIDS virus is easily transferred 
from one person to another in sexual ac- 
tivities that involve the exchange of body 
fluid, especially if minor injuries are in- 
volved. Proper use of condoms certainly 
reduces the chance of exchange of fluid, 
but it has not been proven that condoms 
eliminate the risk of AIDS. 

A few words about the AIDS blood 
test: there are many limitations to the test 
which can produce both false positive and 
false negative results. A truly positive test 
means that the person has been exposed 
to HTLV-III. It does not tell whether the 
person has or will develop AIDS. 

If you gave blood during the blood 
drive here last week, you were given a 
brochure which said, "...a few in- 
dividuals may have the HTLV-III virus 
and may be infectious, but will not have 
those in one of the risk groups. Women the antibodies that are revealed by the 
may be infected through vaginal inter- test." This is because they were newly in- 
course with a male carrier, and male sex- fected and there has not been time for 
ual partners of female carriers are also at their bodies to build the antibodies 
risk. Let's look at a few figures before we Anotiier brochure I have says, "the 
go on to the good news. ^.-^ chances of contracting AIDS through a 

only 5-20'!'o of these have progressed to 
full-blown AIDS. Some have recovered 
without treatment, while others have 
stayed the same for long periods of time. 
The largest group of people infected 
with AIDS virus are not presently ill. 
Since they have no symptoms, these can 
be identified only by a blood test for an- 
tibodies to the AIDS virus. There is no 
way to predict if these will develop ARC 
or AIDS. So far, 5-10% have developed 
into AIDS and 10-20% have gotten ARC. 
All people with a positive blood test for 
antibodies to the AIDS virus must con- 
sider themselves capable of transmitting 
the virus to others (probably all their 
lives). Some estimate this group could 
number two million in America. Another 
article says it is believed that more than 
50% of those infected with the virus will 
in time develop one or more of the op- 
portunistic diseases which indicates 

More than 90% of the people with 
AIDS are men and 70-75% of these with 
AIDS are homosexual or bisexual. There 
is a very small number who aren't in the 
high risk groups which include I.V.-drug 
users. Most have been sexual partners of 

in 13 to carry Krall's team to a four-point 
victory. Co-captain Mack kept Mackey's 
team in the game with 14 points, but 
Krall's team warded off the last-minute 
charge. The victory gave Kj-all a perfect 
4-0 record. 


blood transfusion are estimated to be no 
more than a million to one." Another 
source said one in five million. No one 
seems to know yet how long it takes after 
exposure to show antibodies in the blood. 
If you ever wonder if you have the an- 
tibodies, do no try to give blood to see 
if it will be accepted. There are other 
means of getting the test free. 

The greatest element of risk to health 
care providers is associated with 
needlestick injuries. You no longer are re- 
quired to resheath used needles due to this 
risk. The public health bulletin "Recom- 
mend Precautions for Health Care 
Workers. ..Regarding AIDS" can be 
viewed in Health Service. Ask to see your 
hospital's infection control manual. 

For information about AIDS, there are 
two hotlines: 

800-342-2437 is a recording. 
800-447-2437 is a person who will 
converse with you. 
Members of Student Personnel Service 
are presently reviewing bulletins and 
recommendations on the subject and are 
preparing responsive attitudes to the pro- 
blem of AIDS.

Shuttle Cartoon 

Dear Editor: 

I enjoyed the special faculty issue. It 
is an idea that I hope will continue in the 

However, your cartoon about ex- 
plosive shuttle toys was repulsive. A more 
appropriate response to the tragedy 
would have been that of cartoonist Dobal

Secular Talent? 

Dear Editor: 

Recently I auditioned for a spot in the 
S.A. talent Program. I selected for my 
choice a contemporary sacred song writ- 

ten by John Michael Talbot. Two days 
after the audition, I received a note in the 
mail informing me that my choice was m- 
appropriate for the occasion. In the 
words of the Vice-President for Social 
Activities, " We are not including any 
religious numbers in this secular 

It amazes me that in certam circles ot 
student leadership, talent is restricted en- 
tirely to the secular realm. I hope that in

Black History Week 

Dear Editor: 

The question was put to me, "Why 
should we have a Black History Week? ' ' 
Probably before I attempt to answer that 
question I should tell what Black History 

Black history is more than slavery, 
George Washington Carver, Jackie 
Robinson, and Martin Luther King, Jr. 
Black history is more than the disappoint- 
ments and achievements of a race. Black 
history is more than segregation and civil 
rights. Black history is all these things, 
but what we seem to forget is that Black 
history is American history. 
Unfortunately, Black history is almost a 
forgotten part of American history. We 
hear about the horrors of slavery and the 
Civil Rights movement of the '60's. What 
about in-between and after these times? 
Did Black history stop? No. This is one 
reason why Black History Week is impor- 
tant. Most Americans (including blacks) 
- don't know much about Black history. 
This is a week of learning. 

The question is still unanswered. "Why 
should we have Black History Week?" 
Are we attempting to honor one race over 
others? Are we attempting to make white 
people feel bad by bringing up the past? 
No, that is not our intention vrith regard 
to Black History Week. Our intention is 
to foster an understanding. An 
understanding that bridges more than 
two races at two seperau poles, but one 
that bridges all races and all people. An 
understanding that we can live together 

in harmony. We as Christians know this 
world will not be perfect until Jesus 
comes again. Black History Week 
reminds us that we can still try to make 
things better while we're stiU here'. This 
is a week of understanding. 

It is interesting to look at the official 
name of this week, "Black History Week 
Celebration." Truly it is a time to 
celebrate. This is a time to study ac- 
complishments and honor great men and 
women. It is a time for blacks to say we 
are proud of who we are. It is also ^ tiine 
for all of us to get together and say'we've 
made mistakes in the past, but let's grab 
each other's hands and make the future 
better. This is a week of celebrating. 
Lyndon Edwards 

Black History Opinions 

Dear Editor: 

This time last year there was a lot of 
controversy on campus about Black 
History week. It was a quiet controversy 
among the students. A lot of bitterness 
could be heard from all sides. The black 
students feh rejected because so few at- 
tended the chapels that week. The white 
students and other ethnic groups felt it 
was unfair to single out the Black race for 
special attention. Harry Brown wrote an 
article defending it as a brotherhood-of- 
man week, and I wrote a rebuttal saying 
it clearly was not so, but that having such 
a week properly classified might not be 
bad. I recommended an " American 
History Week— the Black Contribution" 
as a title and a guide for the proper focus 
of such a week. But of course nothing 
changed and we have the same kind of 
Black History Week with the same old 
perspective: a perspective that generates 
attitudes of "us" versus "them," a 
perspective that encourages hostility bet- 
ween the races, a week that points out our 
differences rather than our similarities. 
I hear all the same comments again this 
year, the same frustrations and the same 
bitterness— almost the same; it may have 
increased. Why do we stumble on with 
things unchanged? Why do we let things 
slide? Why does everyone whisper his 
feelings? Where is the conviction to stand 
up and speak our feelings and beliefs? 
Last year I received more than 100 com- 
ments but not a single letter written to the 
editor or to an administration official 
asking for a reply. The administration, 
as all administrations do, prefers to let 
cont. on p.S

Vocal performances were given by 
Doug Woodall, Vincent Flores, and 
Connie and Robin Williams. "Lang and

According to Carole Huenergardt, 
coordinator of the evening, the banquet 
cost about $2,000 and approximately 200 
couples attended. 

Of those 200, several got attention in

lot that this nonsense is without pattern or order. Of 
Bs of endearment there seem to be five main types: 
nal, edible, ethereal, infantile and strange. Animal 
IS include Lamb or Lambkins, Ducks, Mouse, Bear 
ilie popular Pussycat. Among the edibles are Pum- 
1 Apple Dumpling and an unhealthy variety of bak- 
ods. Ethereal: Angel. Infantile: Babe, Baby, Baby 
Among the strange are combinations of the above, 
asLambie Pie, Honey Bear and Poopsie, a possi- 
reference to fatigue. There are also physically or emo- 
lally descriptive terms such as Hot Lips, Heartthrob, 
ikand Cuddles. All of which have taken up residence 
lie language in both conversation and song, as in the 
inguished lyric: "When my Sugar walks down the 
et/ All the little birdies go tweet, tweet, tweet." 
te categories appear to crop up in different 
juages as well. The French call their dear ones cab- 
les, rabbits and casseroles. The Italians, little eggs. 
ierians refer to lovers as tigers, which is understan- 
ile, and as bedbugs, which are evidently cuter in 
Itiia than they are elsewhere. The Chinese use the 
B little dog, and the Germans, little treasure. Lit- 
is the key to many of these expressions. For some 
ion the tendency in the language of love is to make 
lot the object of one's affections; it is quite com- 
in most languages to add a diminutive suffix to a 
«e(in Russian, ya, in Greek, oula, in Irish, een) so 
loexpress fond feelings. Psychologists might suggest 
the purpose of these diminutions is to assert the 
iority of lover to loved one ("my pet"), but the 
diminishes all parties. We have created these words 
irbal comforters, warm safety zones, wherein 
Jne, no matter how high and mighty, is free to sound 
[a nitwit. 

jus did Henry VIII write a letter to Anne Boleyn,

I'kys I trust shortly to kiss . " This was before Anne 
\« duckys were sent to the Tower of London. 
ton once chastised Josephine with: "You're a 
'ily, gawky, foolish Cinderella." Beethoven ad- 
his mysterious "Immortal Beloved" as "My 
"ly all, my very self," and Chekhov began notes 
a Knipper, his bride-to-be, with: "Doggie, my dear 
' " "My dear little nincompoop," and "My dear, 
wful Knipschitz"— a term that never gained wider 
President Harding's mistress told him one day: 
*you, darling Warren Harding," thus creating 
' of endearment from a proper name, though in 
TOper circumstance. When the mistress express- 
"■sh that the two of them could be alone, the 
jMtis reported to have replied: "Gee, I do too, 

n suppose it would be possible to come up with 
|ophisticated words to bespeak our affection for 
ipother? It would not be necessary to create ex- 
py intellectual terms, such as Hegel Face, but our

Bond? Would not he in turn rather be known by his 
corporation-lawyer lady friend as FeeUn' Good or 
Health Club? ("I know it's mad, but I want you. Diet 
Coke.") There might be new song lyrics at last: "Let 
me call you Volvo/ I'm in love with you." Show tunes 
might be revised: ' 'A hundred and one/ Pounds of fun/ 
That's my Condo Mini Um." 

But all this is quite unlikely. We will never abandon 
the old terminology, no matter how inane. For one 
thing, words like Precious and Chickadee may sound 
silly, but they are indispensable when one has forgotten 
the name of the person to whom affection is expressed. 
For another, they remove formality from convivial situa- 
tions. "Good night, Harold," sounds considerably 
cooler than "Bedtime, Bear." Then, too, these words 
work excellently as shorthand palliatives: But Cuddles..., 
but Strudel. In The Maltese Falcon, Humphrey Bogart 
called Mary Astor "Sweetheart" as he informed her that 
she was about to be sent to the chair. The news was 
disappointing, but the word must have softened the 

Still, the principal reason for hanging on to these terms 
is that people in love generally are silly people, so it is 
only fitting that they sound as silly as possible. Such 
silliness will be on display in abundance this Valentine's 
Day, when Dearests and Darlings will once again spread 
Uke nougat over the continents, and the world will heave 

and deflate in one vast swoonish sigh. So concludes the 
Essay, at which point all are requested to stop reading,

for whom all words are written by your Squeezums who 
pines for you and prays that you soon will be

Hefty 's Bag 

By Stevt Martin 
^ For the sports fans of Southern Col- 
^-^ le« happy days are here again. There 
^; been some lean times of late m the 
sports page, as most of you have nouc- 
ri Thisis why Jerry, Randy, and myself 
have been caUed on to try to restore the 
respect in the sports page. 

We are novf half-way through the 
basketball season and have been asked to 
help with the paper for a few weeks. Now 
please don't get me wrong: Dave Not- 
telson has been doing a fme job on the 
sports page of late, but one person can- 
not cover aU that needs to be covered, 
especially in basketball season. 

I know what you're thinkmg; weU, 
enough small talk, what can we expect? 
For the old students, you can expect the 
same format as last year's paper. For the 

The Stars Are Out 

By Dave Nottelson 
All-Stars. The words have a special 
ring to them. It means you're above the 
average, a part of the eUte, the best at 
what you do. On Saturday night, 
February 15, the Southern College gym- 
nasium will be the site of the second an- 
nual Girls' All-star basketball game. 
Starting at 7 p.m., the best women 
basketball players will showcase theu 
talent in the cuhnination of the in- 
tramural season, last year was the first 
Girls' All-star game, and it turned out to 
be an exciting, down-to-the-wire game 
that was decided in the final minutes. 

The game originated when Steve 
Jaecks, intramural director at Southern 
College, was approached by team cap- 
tans of the girls' basketball teams. The 
girls felt it was unfair that the guys had 
the all-night Softball tournament and the 
Rees Series, but girls' sports were being 
neglected. I asked Jaecks about the 
reason behind having a Girls' All-Star 
game. He replied, "The girls felt cheated, 
so we put together the All-Star game. 
There was such outstanding fan reaction 
that we decided to make it a tradition." 
The girls themselves are very up-beat 
about the game and their opportunity to 
play. Tracey Wills commented, "I was 
really happy about being chosen for the 
All-Star game. I also think it's a boost for 
women's sports on campus." Teresa 
Rogers added, "It's going to be a fun 
game. All the girls are excited about be- 
ing on the team."

for Saturday,.Febuary 15, at 8 pm. imJ

a tradition that wiU promote positiveij

tramurals director Steve Jaecks, who*

The team, which consists of the "AA"L

Henry Coleman up front. The starriiJ 
back court wiU probably be John Grif 
and Mike Hershberger. The first ones oil

Matheson up front. Back court reservi 
are Dave Green, Randy Beers, and Davl

Black History, Believer 

Dear Editor: 

Tim Lale 


Comment on "Deans" 

Dear Editor: 

I realize that it is your goal to report 
campus news as completely and as objec- 
tively as possible — and I want to com- 
mend you on doing a fine job. But, I 
must say that I found your article, "That- 
cher Deans Change," rather 

It is one thing to report a change in 
deans — that is news. But when you start 
prying into the "whys" of the change, 
then things begin to get very subjective. 
A dean who has just resigned or asked for 
a leave of absence is probably not going 
to have a very balanced view of the the 
situation. Therefore, I found your piece 
of reporting rather one-sided. Now, it is 
true that you did give Dean Schlisner a 
chance to comment, but wisely, he did 
not take the chance to fuel the fire 
(maybe the paper should have followed 
^ his example). 


I really feel like there is no room what- 
soever in a Christian institution for public 
dissension between faculty. Sure, there 
are always going to be misunderstandings 
and disagreements — after all, we're 
human— but letting the whole campus 
know about it can only cause disunity and 
hard feeUngs — especially when we don't 
know the whole story! Let's not let the 
desire for a juicy story get in the way of 
the Christian principle of unity. 

For what it's worth, Dean Schlisner, I 
think you're terrific (and so do a lot of 
other people)! 

John Dysinger 

Telling"what" without telling "why" 
creates an irresistible itch that can only 
be satisfied by pouring the gasoline of 
gossip on an already hot fire. More 
"disunity and hard feelings" will be caus- 
ed when an information-hungry campus 
goes to the grapevine. 

I believe in Black History Week. 

For last week's Souf/iernylccen<, Stan 
Hickman wrote a letter challenging the 
rest of us to either speak up for or against 
Black History Week. Although there 
were mixed reactions to his letter, I 
choose to take what he said at face value 
and thank him for the nudge to speak up. 

From my prespective, any minority 
needs special attention and nurturing 
from the majority that surrounds it. By 
speaking out in favor of Black History 
Week, I in no way wish to detract from 
the needs of international students, other 
students of color, and women, who from 
my viewpoint are currently a numerical 
majority vrith a minority status. All of the 
above groups have an intact cultural 
heritage from which the development of 
a positive identity is possible. From a 
positive culture comes a positive identi- 
ty. From a positive identity comes a 
positive self-image. From a positive self- 
image comes the capacity to thrive, ex- 
cell, and positively contribute to one's 
world. The American black does not have 

such a cultural heritage.

Computer Scientists 
i^isit Cincinnati 

February 20, 1986/SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

gy fVilliam McKnight 
Seven students and two faculty 
lembers arrived in Cincinnati Monday 
lening, February 3, to beat the Tuesday 
lorning rush to the "Computer Science 
onference/Employment Register" you 
oliced written across the school calen- 
ji, The conference was a combination 
flectures, textbook displays, and a job 

We were welcomed to the University of 
Sncinnati, our place of dwelling for the 
ijek, with a fire alarm requesting that we 
scale immediately. The fire engines 
jme and left quickly, and we were told 
such pranks are a common occur- 
;nce at the school. There was another 
je at the neighboring dorm the next day. 
On Monday evening we talked to some 
the dozen or so employers who were 
lere throughout the week seeking to fill 
osilions with graduating college seniors. 
Although not all of us were looking for 
lbs, most took advantage of the 
mployment Register by getting exposure 
the job interview. Following this was 
welcome ceremony in the nearby 
llarion Hotel ballroom. 
Each day began in the Convention 
inter with a Keynote Address, a lecture 
lal pertained to a "theme of the day." 
Fifth Generation Computing," "Soft- 
are Engineering," and "Artificial In- 
lligence and Robotics" were the themes 
It the three days. Some of us literally 
our heads during the addresses. 
'hen these meetings were over and the 
ufflmg of the crowd awoke us, it was 
me to go our separate ways for the day. 
Ken Priddy and Jere Geisinger spent 

DeafS.C. Senior to Exhibit 
Art at Brock Hall Gallery 

maiiy long hours at the Employment 
Register. The lines got so long that a 
typical wait became two hours. Despite 
this, everyone managed a winning smile 
to charm the employers. 

Merritt MacLafferty, Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Computer Science, and Judy 
DeLay, Finance Programmer for the col- 
lege, opted to explore the displays of new 
Computer Science textbooks. In my brief 
visit to this section, a dream came true. 
That's right: I actually got to meet the 
publisher of one of my textbooks. 

The lectures, given throughout the day, 
covered a wide variety of Computer 
Science topics. A couple of my personal 
favorites were "Hash Coding for Dic- 
tionary Storage and Word-Matching 
Used in Decoding Substitution Ciphers 
(with application to OCR)" and "An Ef- 
ficient Flow Routing Algorithm to Solve 
the Maximum Concurrent Flow Problem 
With Applications to the Packed Switch- 
ed Telecommunication Networks and 
Cluster Analysis." These were faithfully 
attended by those in the Scientific Writing 

The most enjoyed address was Thurs- 
day's talk on artificial intelligence and 
robotics. The speech included a video 
showing how computers are used in the 
cockpit as well as a robotic arm that per- 
forms welding on an airplane engine. 

This conference was definitely good for 
the exposure to the field of Computer 
Science, its opportunities, and the way 
the field, as a business, functions. Next 
year's conference will be held in St. 

A senior art exhibit by Joan Holowach 
will be on view in the Brock Hall Gallery 
from February 23 through March 28. 

An opening night reception on Sunday, 
February 23, will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. 
Gallery hours for the remainder of the 
show will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday 
through Friday. 

"My best works are my drawings," 
claims the young artist, though other 
media such as prisma color wax, acrylic, 
watercolor, and sculpture are also 
represented in her showing. She especially 
has a strong feeling for nature subjects. 
"WildUfe, that is my love." Deaf from 
birth, she utilizes American Sign 
Language to converse. 

This is Miss Holowach's third year on 
the CoUegedale campus, where she has 
been studying under Robert Garren, 
M.F.A., Professor of Art, and Malcohn 
Childers, a free-lance artist who teaches 
at Southern College on contract. She will 
be graduating with honors in May, the 
first deaf student to achieve this distinc- 
tion at the college. 

She previously attended Georgia 
School for the Deaf and Gallaudet Col- 
lege in Washington, D.C. Carol

Ornithologists Migrate to Florida 

Early on Thursday morning, Februari 
27, the ornithology class together with 
their instructor, E.O. Grundset, and lab 
assistant, Clyde Blum, wiU begin theh an- 
nual trek to Florida for the purpose of 
seeing as many birds as possible in the 
varied habitat areas which are found on 
the Florida peninsula. The class wUl spot 
not only resident birds but also a great 
number of migratory birds that winter m 
Florida. Some of them are western birds 
like the American Avocet and Western 
Sandpiper, and others like the Gannets 
come from Labrador and even the west 
coast of Ireland and Wales. 

In spotting these birds, the group wiU 
visit such interesting-sounding places as 
Payne's Prairie, Cape Canaveral 
Seashore Refuge, Loxahatchee WUdUfe 
Refuge (in the northeast corner of the 
Everglades), Royal Pahn, Flamingo and 
Nme-Mile Pond (in the Everglades Na- 

tional Park itself), Sanibel Island, and Scarlet Ibises. 

Symphony on TV 

Alligator Alley, and Shark VaUey. They 
will also visit the Birds of Prey 
RehabiUtation Center operated by the 
Florida Audubon Society where the 
specialists take care of injured hawks, 
eagles, caracaras, and owls and try to 
prepare them for re-entry into the wild 
foUowing recovery from accidents. 

Last year the classes chalked up 151 
species of bkds. In some cases, as with 
the Magnificient Frigate Bu-d and some 
warblers, they saw just one individual, 
but in other cases, as with Laughing GuUs 
and SandhUl Cranes, they observed flocks 
of thousands of birds. Mr. Grundset 
hopes that this year's class wiU also spot 
such rarities as the SnaU Kite, Limpkin, 
and the wintering ducks and sandpipers. 
On the last day of the trip, the class wiU 
visit Walt Disney World's Discovery 
Island where the world's largest aviaries

The Southern CoUege Symphony Or-

ing and recording session by Channel 61 

On Friday, February 7, the pubUc ser- 
vice station sent a team to prepare several 
promotional spots. These wiU be used to 
bring the public's attention to the or- 
chestra and its plans and to an upcom- 
ing half-hour program to be aired in the 
near future. 

The next scheduled filming is for 
Wednesday, February 26. A three-hour 
session, to take place in the church, wiU 
provide material for the main program. 

Proceedings began when conductor 
Orlo Gilbert sent Channel 61 a packet of 

pictures and information on the or- 
chestra's scheduled trip to the Orient. 
WDSI approved the project and arrang- 
ed with Professor Gilbert to do several 
gratis fUmings of the symphony. 

Presently, Gilbert is making tentative 
arrangements for a phone-a-thon to be 
held during the airing of the half-hour 
program. AU proceeds wiU go toward the 
Orient fund. 

The orchestra is in the news elsewhere, 
as well. Recently, a reporter from the 
News Free Press interviewed GUbert for 
a special feature which is expected to ap- 
pear in a Sunday edition. This report,

Staley Lecture 

J By Lisa Springett 

Dr Myron Augsburger, the third 
speaker in the Staley Christian Scholars 
Lecture Series, spoke for chapel on Tues- 
day, February 18. 

Dr Augsburger spoke on "Chnstology 
and Futurism: What They Mean to the 
Youth of Today." He explained, using 
many examples, that the universe is not 
a closed system, because God can m- 
fluence man and intervene in the course 
of events. He continued that the world is 
not static either, but changes, because 
man is creative. But man can change the 
world for better or worse. Dr. 
Augsburger also said that the world is not 
final, because we can change the world 
we live in. He concluded by saying that 
knowing Jesus will enable people to bet- 
ter understand the Bible, themselves, and 
God's plan for their Ufe. This, in turn, 
will give them direction to change the 
world for the better. 

Dr. Augsburger is a native of Ohio, but 
now resides in Washington,D.C., where 
he is currently the pastor of the 
Washington Community Fellowship. He 

Bennett: Some Colleges Are 'Ripping Off the 
American Public' 

In congressional testimony last week, 
Education Secretary William Bennett 
opined that some unnamed schools are 
graduating badly-educated students. 

Bennett is expected to propose chang- 
ing the way the Education Department 

is also an evangelist with the lnter-Ch"ch 
Crusades and with his evangehstjc team 

has held crusades in the U.S. and 
Canada, as weU as the major continents 
and islands of the world. Dr. Augsburger 
has been president and professor ol 
theology at his alma mater. Eastern Men- 
nonite College and Seminary m Virginia. 
He also served as moderator ot the 
General Assembly of the Mennomte 
Church between 1983 and 1985. 

Aside from contributing to several 
books. Dr. Augsburger has also had 
published fifteen of his own authorship. 
His post-graduate studies were conducted 
at Basel, Oxford, George Washington 
University, the University of Michigan, 
and Princeton Theological Seminary. 

The Staley Christian Scholars Lecture 
Series is sponsored by the Thomas F. 
Staley Foundation, a private, nonprofit 
organization established to administer 
funds to further the evangelical witness 
of the Christian church, with a particular 
concern for college students.

The tuition at Southern CoUege is be- 
ing r^sed by approximately five percent, 
, tin ner credit hour increase. This in- 
^r^sev^U go into effect the fall semester 

°^'hf reason for this increase, according 
to M.Tenneth Spears, Vice-Presiden 
for Finance, are associated with the 
chool's attempt to balance the budget. 
Ust year, 1984-85, Southern CoUege 
lost $873,000, and this year is budgeted 

to lose $554,000. 

"Because of the falling eiuoUmem ' 
stated Mr. Spears, "even with the fiv 
percent increase, expected income from 
tuition will be $94,000 less than it was to 1 
the current year." 

About $850,000 is being cut from the 
school's operating budget for next year 
Without the tuition increase, this amount 
would be considerably higher. 

This increase is 2 Vi percent less t 
last year's increase. 

Masters in Nursing Offered 

Southern CoUege is now offerxng a 
Master of Science degree in Nursing 
through Andrews University. 

This program carries a cUnical em- 
phasis which deals with the nursing of 
adults and functional emphasis which 
prepares a student for nursing ad- 
ministration. It has been fully accredited 
by the National League for Nursing, said 
Dr. ZeritaHagerman, Director and Pro- 
fessor of Graduate Nursing at Andrews 

"A program such as this is mutually 
beneficial to Southern College and An- 
drews University," stated Dr. Hagerman. 
"The arrangement provides Andrews a 
place to teach from, as weU as adding 

enrollment to its graduate program. For | 
Southern CoUege, it is part of the conti- 
nuing excellence in nursing." 

At this time, 20 students are enroUsl I 
in the program at Southern College. Un. : 
tU the summer class begins May 20, 
however, a student may stiU apply for the | 
graduate program. 

For admission into the program, a slu. I 
dent must have a GPA of 2.75 in nuts- 1 
ing, and a B.S. degree. Nurses with B.S. [ 
degrees in areas other than nursing are I 
evaluated for admission on an individual |

Campus Kitchen 

(CPS)— Texas state coUeges are going 
to offer Bible classes this spring after all. 

Last faU state Attorney General James 
Mattox advised schools not to let teachers 
paid by reUgious groups teach accredited 
reUgion classes on their campuses. 

The arrangements, which have been in 
force for 80 years and are common in the 
Midwest, came close to getting the state 
into the business of advocating or sup- 
porting certain religions, Mattox 

The practice of letting churches spon- 
sor academic courses was "an excessive 
entanglement between church and state," 
Mattox said. 

Soon after Mattox announced his opi- 
nion, a number of state schools announc- 
ed they didn't have enough teachers on 
staff to teach the religion courses 
themselves, and, consequently, would 
fold most of the Bible course sections. 
After months of controversy, however, 
some coUeges have changed their minds 
and scheduled the courses — taught by 
teachers paid by private church groups— 

for the spring semester. 

College officials say they'll wait until | 
Mattox issues another opinion in T 
before junking the courses. 

"Right now I don't have the money lo 
hire more faculty," says Dean Thomas 
Porter of the University of Texas al 
Arlington. , 1 

Arlington, the UT campuses at Austin I 
and El Paso, and North Texas Statt, 
among others, are re-opening subsidiiw 
reUgion courses.

asserts Allan McNicol, chairman of tw

sity of Texas in Austin. "It's another one

Black History Response 

"^writing in reference to a letter in 
Tebwaiy 13. 1986, issue of the 
2ern Accent. This letter was 
Sed "Black History Opinions" and 
'written by Stan Hickman I would 
est that a better name for his article 
fid be "Black History Opinion," for 
article does not accurately exemplify 
llttltudes of the entire student body 
Southern College. I disagree with 
„n's article for three reasons. 

First of all, the people in each different 
and ethnic group on our campus 
loy a variety of differing opinions. The 
rding in Stan's article included phrases 
til as "the black students felt" and 
he white students and other ethnic 
Bups felt." I would like to suggest to 
in that before stating what any group 
Is he take a legitimate survey of the 
idents' attitudes, for I know black 
idents have, and I am sure that this is 
: case for other ethnic and racial 

Secondly, 1 do not feel that Stan 
itkman gave Black History Week a fair 
lance. His article was submitted to you 
onday evening, February 10. This was, 
tact, the Monday of Black History 
eek. Without experiencing the events 
It would occur during the week, how 
one accurately judge the effect that 
ch a week will have on the students of 
luthern College in 1986? Yet Stan 
ited, "But of course nothing has 
imged and we have the same kind of 
lack History Week with the same old 
ispective." This is indeed a prime ex- 
nple of the fallacy of hasty generaliza- 
s. Another incorrect generalization in 
article was that "the administra- 
Dii..,prefers to let things slide by quickly 
quietly." Wednesday evening, 
ikraary 12, President Wagner presented 
kal I felt was a keynote address on ap- 
:iating cultural diversity which is one 
Hie guidelines of our school policy. His 
tes challenged me personally to learn 
appreciate the differences and con- 
ibutjons of other races while realizing 
It my race has made worthwhile con- 
ations to our great country. 
Finally, Stan recommended that the 
■Ke, "Black History Week" be changed 
^erican History Week-the Black 
"" ribution." That is a very good sug- 
rs slion; however, I feel that the name 
«n't cause a problem, but the concep- 
* of that name causes problems for 
He. The phrase "he passed away" may 
less offensive than the phrase "he

Talent Response 

Dear Editor: 

In last week's issue of the /Iccenr there 
appeared a letter entitled "Secular 
Talent." That title is completely ap- 
propriate. The Talent Show is a secular 
event in which students present their 
talent to the student body. 

Sacred music is to give glory to God. 
The school has designated special pro- 
grams devoted entirely to this, such as 
lawn concerts, afterglows, etc. True, all 
talent is God-given, but I believe that 
sacred and secular should not be mixed. 

Additionally, there is a potential au- 
dience and judging problem. In a mixed 
(sacred/secular) event, the audience could 
feel uncomfortable about response: 
should they clap, say "Amen," or what? 
Concerning judging, what criteria should 
be used to evaluate a sacred vs. a secular 

I hope this letter has helped to clarify 
the sacred vs. secular question. May God 
bless each person who uses his talent to 
the best of his ability.

Dear Editor: 

Stan Hickman is to be commended for 
his excellent letter in last week's Accent. 
However, I would like to remind Stan 
about something stated so adequately in 
an anecdote I came across in the "Pepper 
and Salt" section of the Wall Street Jour- 
nal not too long ago. It said: "The right 
to speak out is what the Constitution 
guarantees. It's a shame it doesn't cover 
the resultant fees. " To many, "speaking 
out" is not worth the "fees." It is far 
safer being bitter. But if Stan is in dire 
need of some action, here it comes: we 
[my friends and I] hate black history 
week! (Among other things, it costs us 
one worship violation apiece.)

Education Depart- 
ment Could Lose 
25 Percent of Its 

Even before President 
Reagan's budget proposed 
slashing the Education 
Department's budget ten 
percent, the Congressional 
Budget Office told the 
Senate last week that 
"automatic" cuts due 
March 1 to satisfy the 
Gramm-Rudman budget- 
balancing law could shave 
25 percent off the depart- 
ment's fiscal 1987 budget. 

That would amount to a 
cut of $7.65 billion, com- 
pared to the $3.2 billion 
the president proposed 
February 5. 

Pell Grant funding 
would be cut by 17 percent, 
the American Association 
of State Colleges and 
Universities predicted. 

But all college programs 
would be "decimated" by 
the Gramm-Rudman cuts, 
which go into effect if 
Congress and the president 
don't agree on alternative 
cuts by March 1, the Com- 
mittee for Education Fun-

Sports Commentary 

^ By Jerry Russell and Dave Noltelson 
~ ' Basketball season has ended, and once 
again it was a down-to-the-wire season. 
In the "AA" league, John Grys's team 
beat Milce Hershberger on the last game 
of the season to take the crown. Had Her- 
shberger won, the teams would have tied 
at 6-3, but Hershberger would have been 
given first place. 

In "A" league, Jerry RusseU's team 
squeaked by Don Alfaro on the last game 
to take the first place title. 

In "B" league, Barry Krall's team won 
their first seven games to clinch the title. 

but they failed to go undefeated as 
Dedeker's team beat them on the last 
game of the season. 

In women's basketbaU it was the 
"Green Machine" that took honors. The 
whole season was a close race to the 
finish. Beardsley's team had the distmc- 
tion of being the only team in any league 
to not win a game. 

It's been a fantastic season and the best 
is yet to come. Stay tuned for Rees Series 
action in the gym tonight and this Satur- 
day night. 

Rees Series Time Is Here! 

By J. Randolph Thuesdee 
The 1986 Rees Series begins tonight at 
7 p.m. in the gymnasium, and, contrary 
to popular rumor, it's not the start of an 
evangelistic series. As the traditional end 
to the Southern College basketbaU 
season, the Rees Series is excellent com- 
petition featuring the best players from 
each class. 

This year's team to beat, the Seniors, 
has the advantage of having all those 
members who have played in the men's 
AA League this year. The Senior team's 
backcourt consists of sharp-shooting 
David Butler, quick guard and good 
defender David Green, Randy Beers, a 
smart team player with a good shot, and 
coiut general John Grys. Up front the 
Seniors have a leaper with a good bank 
shot m Greg Cain and a good outside shot 
with inside moves in Bob Rogers. Vito 
Montaperto is a good inside player who 
loves play under the basket. Montaperto 
also possesses a good ten-foot shot and 
his jimiping ability has improved. After 
going practically unused by his AA team- 
mates during the season, Montaperto is 
hungry for Rees Series victims. Steve 
Carlson is a versatile forward/guard with 
a good outside shot and good rebounding 
abilities, and, speaking of rebounds, to 
go along with good play down low, the 
Seniors also have Doug Rowland, the 
lone legitimate center. 

A team with plenty of centers, the 1986 
Freshman team, boasts three of the most 
promising freshman centers to hit SC in 
quite some time. The most outstanding 
of the three centers is Clarence Wilson. 
Wilson, standing at 6' 4" , is a definite in- 
side threat as well as a threat to go coast- 
to-coast and finish it off with a rafters- 


Testing the camivoie-ptool vest. 

shaking slam. The other centers are Brent 
Barney and Robin Davis. The Freshman 
forwards are James Gardner and Bob 
Forquer, but the team's strength lies in 
its guards: Nick George, sharp-shooting 
Dave Neraess, and the electrifying Kevin 

The Sophomore team has a fantastic 
guard in Mike Hershberger. An excellent 
shooter and playmaker, Hershberger had 
many games in double figures for his se- 
cond place AA team this year. With him 
are two fine A-League guards, Jim 
Malone and Sam Wise. Kent Boyle and 
Stan Flemons round out the guard troop 
with the high-flying, shot-blocking, 
rebound-grabbing Mike Accardo at the 
center position, along with the top first- 
year player Greg Grisso, whose inside 
play tore up AA League this year, and 
Chad Andrews, the consistent forward 
from A League. 

The 1986 Junior squad features Steve 
Flynn, a great leaper and versatile athlete 
who can play at either the forward or 
guard position. Also on the squad is the 
crowd favorite "Duke" Henry Coleman. 
The past two seasons, Coleman has come 
into his own with his patented eight-foot 
turn-around jump shot and has hit dou- 
ble figures several times over that span. 
Bob Murdoch is a talented player who 
loves the baseline and has fine moves 
there within ten feet of the bucket. Randy 
Thuesdee is a guard who likes to 
penetrate the defense and dish off. 
Thuesdee doesn't score much, but he 
likes to set his teammates up for what 
they like to do best. Jim Crone is a good 
swingman with a good outside shot, and 
once he gets on a roll, there's no telling 
how many he'll put in by 
the game's end. Not get- 
ting to play much during 
the season hurt Crone, but 
he's anxious to make up 
for that with a good Rees 
Series. Eric Mock, a post 
grad, was picked for the 
Squad to beef up the center 
position, but as of press 
time it was uncertain if he 
would play. Mock has 
been battling an ankle in- 
jury all year. Barry 
Manzella is a guard who 
came back this year to play 
A League. An excellent 
team player, Manzella will 
get the ball to whoever is 
hot, but not to be forgot- 
ten is his outside shot from 
twenty feet. Rounding out 
the Junior squad is Steve 
French, who has an ex-

Guys' All-Star vs. Oakwood 

By Dave Noltelson 

The Southern College All-Stars had 
their hands full Saturday night as they 
lost to a visiting Oakwood team, 113-81. 
The game was kept within seven points 
for the first 15 minutes, but it was at that 
time that Oakwood ran off ten 
unanswered points and at half-time had 
built a 22-point lead. 

By the end of the third quarter, things 
had gotten out of hand as Oakwood had 
stretched the lead to 40 points. The 
Southern All-Stars fought back doggedly 
and at one point had cut the lead down 
to 17, but a tough Oakwood team would 
not fall. 

The leading scorers for S.C. were John 
Grys and Henry Coleman who had 23 
and 20 points respectively. Oakwood had 
a slight rebounding edge, 36-51, while 
S.C. shot 57 percent from the line com- 
pared to 55 percent for Oakwood. 

The one facet of Oakwood's gamethaj I 
stood out was their team play and exetu-l 
tion. Coach Steve Jaecks commented, I 
"They played well as a team. You coiiliil 
tell they were familiar with each other ami I 
we weren't. We needed more practice li I 
a team." Henry Coleman noted, "W(j 
were pretty even talent-wise, but they're I 
an organized team and it's hard to b 
that." , 

Even though Southern lost the gamt,! 
everyone on both teams felt a sense oil 
gain. The teams exchanged tokens ot I 
goodwill at the beginning of the gam, [ 
and a spirit of sportsmanship was ar 
parent throughout. Brent Barney said, ' 
had a lot of fun playing Oakwood. Hey I 
were a nice group of guys to play basket- 1 
ball with." Steve Jaecks is hoping tot I 
this game will become a tradition herejll 
Southern CoUege, a tradition that v 
draw our two schools together.

Girls' All-Star Action 

By Dave Noltelson 
Teresa Rogers, ice water pumping 
through her veins, sank two free throws 
with four seconds left, to give the blue 
team a 52-5 1 victory over the red team in 
the women's All-Star game Saturday 

agile, French will get his points for sure 
if the defense makes the mistake of 
underestimating him. 

The teams seem to be even, more so 
this year than any other year before, 
although the Seniors are clearly the bet- 
ter group of players. But remember, last 
year's Sophomores were rated last and 
wound up winning the tournament. Good 
coaching and good team play does it 
every time. 

There will be an all-tournament team 
and MVp awards at the close of the Rees 
Series on Saturday night. Also the Scott

Dixie Henderson and Monese

Two most valuable players were 
selected by the sports writers, one 
representing each team. It was a difficult 
task to pick just one player from each 
team because every girl played with deep 
intensity and incredible spirit, but two 
players were finally singled out. For Red 
team, DyerRhonda Green was the win- 
ner for her 28 points, three rebounds, and 
fantastic off-the-ball play. Blue team's 
MVP was Teresa Rogers for her 15 points 
and steady shooting hand when the team 
needed her most. 

The fan reaction was super, and win or 
lose, both teams had fun. Congratula- 
tions to all the girls for a fine game and 
outstanding sportsmanship.

Private Drive 

February 14, Valentine's Day 

Dear Editor: 

1 just came inside from standing in my 
"private drive" with only my SOl's on. 
That's all. No shirt, no shoes— And it is 
cold, and icy rain has been falling. Why? 
To stop yet another car and driver and 
explain to him (even though there are 
signs that can be read) that this is a 
"private drive." In this particular case, 
the car had come in, dropped someone 
off at the new wing steps, then backed 
into my basketball court, and proceeded 
to drive out. Coming around the hedges 
was me, 6 foot 5 inches and 250 pounds, 
give or take a late night snack or two. The 
driver had to quickly apply the brakes to 
keep from hitting me. Would a four-year- 
old on roller skates have had much of a 
chance? Especially if the car were back- 
ing up? I doubt it. 

I hear a lot of reasons for coming in 
the "private drive." "I'm late for work," 
"I'll only be a minute," "I was just drop- 
ping someone off." I am sure that all 
these reasons will make me feel com- 
forted when 1 am holding an injured child 
in my arms. This problem of "private 
drives" is not limited to just Talge Hall, 
either. Thatcher Hall has a similar pro- 
blem, even worse, due to the blind cor- 
ners that exist in their driveway, for 
which a lot more traffic is involved. 

I realize that as a dean I get a lot of 
living benefits that I am grateful for. 1 
also get some I am not so grateful for. 
I get to listen to people talk, laugh, yell, 
slam doors, squeal tires, race engines, 
whistle, sing, and bounce basketballs and 
golf balls on the floor (my ceiling). I get 
to experience the thrill of flushing 
scalding water down the toilet, while just 
a few feet away in the living room, the 
winter winds whistle through unclosable 
windows while the heater blows continual 
\ "cool heat." OK. There are ways to work 
' around most of the above, and we have. 
I realize that a lot of the invasion comes 
with the territory. I am aware of the 
phrase, "If you can't stand the heat, get 
out of the kitchen (dorm)." 

We tried a cheap chain and post 
system. The chain got broken. We 
Mickey Mouse'd it back up. Then 
someone tore the chain and a post com- 
pletely out. I have done some price check- 

ing. A mechanical arm type of system, 
similar to what you see at airports, would 
run in the neighborhood of $2,2(X). It 
would not have to be this kind necessari- 
ly, but whatever it is should be efficient, 
sturdy, and aesthetic to the eye. Some will 
say that is a lot of money. It is, unless you 
happen to live here with two little boys. 
The chain system also made it very dif- 
ficult for foot traffic. I have seen people 
running at full speed with hands full of 
CK food hit the chain and fall flat on 
their. ..faces. It especially makes it dif- 
ficult for the handicapped. I love Mark 
Eglinas, but he should not have to yell 
"Carl Lewis" every time he goes over or 
under the chain. 

Tragedies are going to happen. Risks 
come with living.. .or dying. But do they 
have to happen to my four-year-old in his 
own "private drive?" 

Is the problem just the Qualleys? No! 
Dean Christman has kids, Dorothy 
Somers' grandson plays here, plus other 
faculty's kids, too. 

The term "negligence" has brought a 
lot of people a lot of money. I would not 
want any money. I would rather have my 
little one putting his hands and arms 
around my neck, with his hands patting 
me on the back, sunultaneously with the 
words, "I love you, too. Daddy. Will you 
be my Valentine?"

Talent Show Response 

Dear Editor: 

All in all, the talent that was displayed 
at the Talent Show was excellent. It was 
more than what I expected from the stu- 
dent body, with all the work and creativi- 
ty that went into it. 

The one issue that disturbed me was 
that the "Dana & Friends" act didn't 
receive proper treatment. As they started 
to lip-sync the song "That's What 
Friends Are For," the audience cheered 
and clapped ahnost through the entire 
song. The message of the song was well 
presented, and the song transcended the 
color barriers. 

It was very creative of them to imitate 
the song so well. Dunbar Fraser had his 
hair braided like Stevie Wonder, wore 
dark glasses, and rocked from side to 
side. Also, Dana Austin, acting as 
Dionne Warwick, and Stephanie Austin, 
acting as Gladys Knight, expressively got 

the message of the song across, and final- 
ly, Rick Swistek acted very well as Elton 

The audience loved it, and showed 
their choice of winner by their applause. 
At the end of the song the whole gyin was 
roaring with screams and enthusiasm. 
That alone should have told the judges 
who the grand prize winner should have 
been. Not only did "Dana & Friends" 
not win the grand prize, they didn't even 
score a place in the line-up. 

When the host came out on stage to an- 
nounce the grand prize vrinner, a large 
percentage of the audence was screaming 
"Dana & Friends" over and over again. 
But when Scott Kemmerer's name was 
called again after winning first prize, the 
audience started booing again. Not 
against Scott Kemmerer, but against the 
decision. Don't get me wrong, Scott 
Kemmerer was superb and creative in the 
way he played his saxophone, as well as 
an awesome player. It was just expected 
by the number of votes that were turned 
in for "Dana & Friends" and by the ap- 
plause from the audience that they were 
the obvious choice for the grand prize. 
But it didn't work out that way. 

I personally felt that several mistakes 
had definitely been made. First of all, no 
one was aware that they were supposed 
to bring pencils to judge the grand prize 
winner. People were thinking that con- 
testants were judged by how much ap- 
plause each one received. Pens or pencils 
should have been provided for the au- 
dience. Thus many people ended up not 
voting. Also, for future judging panels 
there needs to be more representation of 
our diverse student body. 

In the midst of all this, something good 
happened. Two days later in chapel, the 
vice-president for social activities, Carole 
Huenergardt, publicly acknowledged that 
some mistakes had been made. The coun- 
ting of the votes was done too quickly, 
and some votes didn't get counted at all. 
Restitution was made when Carole 
Huenergardt announced that "Dana & 
Friends" and a duet were going to also 
receive the grand prize. This debt need- 
ed to be paid, and it was done. I com- 
mend you!

For Battistone's team, their lowest

Annual International 
Extravaganza Banquet 

International Extravaganza '86, a buf- 
fet banquet with entertainment from 
around the world, will be held at 
Southern College of Seventh-day Adven- 
tists on Sunday, March 16. 

"Getting to Know You," the evening's 
theme, will be carried out with folk 
dances from the Carribean, Korea, 
Philippines, and Sri Lanka. Music by 
other ethnic groups on campus will also 
be included on the program. 

Last year Dr. Benjamin E. Bandiola, 
Professor of Education and Psychology 
and sponsor of the International Club at 

Southern College, sparked the first Inter- 
national Extravaganza at the college. At 
that time he expressed the hope that the 
event would become a tradition. Heide 
Ford is this year's club president. 

French cuis^e, to include hors 
d'oeuvres, croSsants, crepes, broccoli 
cheese quiche, peas almondine, 
ratatouille, Napoleon, and assorted 
gourmet salads, will compose the buffet 
menu. The meal and program will be in 
the Southern College cafeteria in Wright 
Hall. Decorations will include sixty inter- 
national flags. 

Levi Strauss Finds Most Students 
Prefer Sleeping to Dating 

Chicago, IL (CPS)— It doesn't have 
much to do with their high-livmg image, 
but college students probably prefer 
sleeping to dating, a new Levi Strauss Co. 
survey of collegiate attitudes has found. 

Dating, in fact, was only students' 
sixth-favorite activity. 

Attending parties topped the survey of 
student preferences. 

"Partying is definitely a verb on cam- 
pus," says Julie Boyle, a company 

Of the more the 6,500 students 
surveyed, 70 percent Usted partying as 
one of their five favorite activities. 

Listening to records came in second, 
with 63 percent of those questioned rating 
it as one of their favorite pastimes. 

Sleeping was third, 56 percent, follow- 
ed by going to movies and eating. 

Only 42 percent of the respondents said 
dating was a favorite activity. 

There were, of course, regional dif- 

ferences in extracurricular tastes. 
Students m the East and South, for ex- 
ample, felt dating was more important 
than did Midwestern and Westerit 

Only about a third of the Westerners 
listed dating as a favorite pasttime. 

Levi Strauss calls the study its "501 
Survey" because the company is resear- 
ching why traditional jeans are gaining 
favor again on campuses, Boyle explains. 

In fact, "jeans are more popular than 
ever with college students," Boyle says, 
adding that students who have jeans wear 
them 75 percent of the time. 

Company executives theorize that 
singer Bruce Springsteen may be partial- 
ly responsible for keeping jeans so 
popular on campuses, Boyle adds. 

The study, Boyle says, "gives the com- 
pany an overview of the habits of con- ' 
sumers. Students are a prime target 
(market) for our jeans." 

Alfred Reed to Conduct 
Band Festival at S.C. 

One of the nation's most frequently 
performed composers, Alfred Reed, will 
conduct and perform with the Collegiate 
Band Festival at S.C. next week. 

The March 20 to 22 festival will bnng 
together at Collegedale about one hun- 
dred students and band directors to study 
with Dr. Reed, professor of music from 
the University of Miami. The festival in- 
cludes a Sabbath morning church perfor-

as jerks by this individual? She has more 
than likely fallen back onto some of the 
old clicheed complaints about men that 
girls have dreamed up to give themselves 
something to talk about at their late night 
bull sessions. However, as is typical with 
most women, they change their mind with 
every new day. This proves that what a 
woman says she wants and what she real- 
ly wants are two different things. 

For instance, some women would say 
that men are jerks because we are too 
possessive. This is a ridiculous argument 
because every man knows that all a

Iowa College 
Recruits by Offer- 
ing Four Years of 
Free Room and 

Momingside College last 
week announced a plan to 
offer four years of free 
room and board to certain 
students, hoping to "ex- 
pand its regional 

To qualify, students 
must be from Iowa or the 
six states on its borders, 
have combined SAT scores 
of 1000 or a minimum 
ACT score of 24, and 
graduate in the upper 40 
percent of their high school 

Washington, D.C. (CPS)-The U.S 
Department of Education issued tough 
new proposals last week that would cut 
off or reduce National Direct Student 
Loan money at 1,561 campuses. 

The proposed rules lower the accep- 
table default rate for schools eUgible for 
new NDSL money, tighten the definition 
of a defaulted loan, and eUminate the ap- 
peals process now available for schools 
that have high default rates. 

The department also proposes to base 
former students' payments on their abUi- 
ty to pay, as well as the amount owed. 
Presently, repayment depends solely on 
the loan amount. 

Colleges themselves administer NDSL 
programs, collect loan payments, and 
recycle the money to new loan applicants. 
The federal government contributes 
new money for lending according to the 
number of loans schools make and how 
well they collect old loans. 

The new regulations, which may go in- 
to effect this June, aim to goad schools 
into lowering their NDSL default rates. 
"This is taxpayers' money," says 
Sharon Messinger, spokeswoman for the 
Education Department. "There's $5 
billion in default right now. That's a $1 
billion cost each year to taxpayers." 

If they don't lower their default rates, 
Messinger says, some schools will be in- 
eligible to get more NDSL money to loan 
out next year. 

Many institutions, however, may be 
trapped in "ineligible" status for at least 
two years, no matter what they do to cor- 
rect defaults, some educators say. 

"In essence, they've shut several doors 
on us at once," says David McDermott's 
study of the NDSL program. 

"McDermott's study found direct loan 
defaults on the decline, down to 8.93 per- 
cent in 1984 from 11.9 percent in 1979. 
Because the program is retroactive, 
money for next year is based on default 
rates in previous years. And deadlines for 
punting bad debts to the government — 
which will collect loans for schools — and 
for filing appeals have passed. 

Schools lose out on loan money the 
government must collect. 

The department proposal, which is 
now open for public comment until 
March 31, would cut off new funding to 
schools with default rates higher than 20 

Schools with default rates between 7.5 
percent and 20 percent would receive only 
partial contributions. 

"The number of schools that would! 
lose all funding suggests the new reguia.l 
tions are too draconian in their effect "I 
says John Dean, counsel for the Coif 
tion of Higher Education Assistam 

"A lot of schools have made grea|| 
strides. They've brought their detaultsl 
from 35 or 40 percent down to 24 percent! 
But now they'd still be kicked out of thJ 
program." 1 

The City University of New York, toil 
instance, could be cut off entirely by thA 
proposed regulations. Howard Univeisil 
ty in Washington, D.C, and the Slaltl 
Universities of New York also may bil 
hard hit. I 

The new plan also would penalial 
Metro State, although the commulal 
school reduced its default rate to 7.94 paJ 
cent from 22 percent the year before. I 
Inner-city schools like Metro hava 
more low-income students, McDeraioll 
adds, and inevitably have higher defaull 

If the new rules go into effect, 

NDSL money could end up going to moEil 

affluent schools with lower default rats 

he says. _ 

"If I had only been given waming,! 

could have assigned a few thousandf 

dollars of loans (to the Education Depait-j 

ment to collect) to meet the new regula-l 

tions," says McDermott. I 

The deadline for assigning bad tal 

to the department was February 15 (foJ 

NDSL money for 1987-88), but mosll 

schools received the notice of changesoni 

February 18, McDermott says. I 

In addition, the deadline for appali| 

for schools not meeting regulations fori 

1986-87 was last November. I 

The proposal does contain some goMi 

news for students by proposing that Hffll 

repayment plans be made "incowl 

contingent." . I 

"We want to deal with the gromnjl 

concerns of debt burdens," says M^f 

inger. "This wiU give future students W|

«,, foUowing is a letter in response to 

Cved by rae from Debbie Mitchell 

.Friday. My reply to her has bearing 

Mni more people than just her, and 

I submit this letter to you as an open 

;e, to all on campus. 

fliere are in my mmd mamly two ways 

f ommunicating. One way is to be soft 

j-verly concerned with the other per- 

', feelings. The second way is to get 

message across as quickly and 

[otcefuUy as possible. This letter adopts 

latter approach. 

^ish to thank you for your letter 

la'led 2-20-86. I suspect that more peo- 

lethan just you were angered by my let- 

,r 10 the Southern Accent, and that in 

sense you are speaking in their behalf. 

lut I was speaking in behalf of many 

lore people than just my friends and 

lyself in that letter. My letter to the Ac- 

ml in its original form did not include 

he phrase "my friends and I" in the 

entence "We hate black history week." 

that sentence was designed to speak on 

behalf of the many more people than my 

friends and I who hate black history 

seek, but who were too afraid to say so 


It is illogical and paranoid to believe 

jt 1 hate blacks because I hate black 

Wory week. Your continual use of 

Kords like "prejudice," "hatred," 

negative feelings," and "South 

frican" suggest that you think I am pre- 

idiced. No doubt every black student at- 

iding Southern College knows that I

jtoo, because of media influence, they 

ilieve my background determines my at- 

ililude toward black history week, and I 

an understand that. I assert than I am 

in individual and it is not fair to be pre- 

iidicial toward me because of my 


So why do I dislike black history week? 

Black history week does not perform the 

liinclion that people think it performs. 

'ast week, Lyndon Edweu-ds' letter to the 

[cccnr stated that the intention of black 

itory week is to foster an understan- 

ig. In a letter appearing in the same 

ine of the Accent as did my letter, 

lelem Flemons stated that black history 

I'ck was to encourage interaction. 

Itither of these objectives — 

itetanding and interaction — is met by 

ek history week. This is evidenced by 

S's like mine to the Accent and by 

ise like yours to me, Debbie. As far as 

iiierstanding and interaction go, you

M't say I didn't expect it. But where

In an article by Shirley Hopkins in the 
February 9, 1984, issue of the Southern 
Accent, Michael Merriweather, sponsor 
of black history week that year, is quoted 
to have said: "[black history week is] a 
time to honor black patriarchs, and to 
highlight achievements of past and pre- 
sent black leaders." Imagine what racists 
we'd be considered if we suggested a week 
to "honor white patriarchs and to 
highlight achievements of past and pre- 
sent white leaders" just because of the 
colorof their skinlWewhodisUkeblack 
history week have no quahns about lear- 
ning of people like George Washington 
Carver, Jackie Robinson, and Martin 
Luther King, Jr., in a historical sense. If 
there must be a black history week, let's 
have speakers like Dick Barron, who 
spoke for last year's black history week, 
and whom I'm sure many of us wouldn't 
mind hearing again. I don't understand 
how any non-black student in attendance 
at the chapel I have referred to could have 
sat all the way through that garf since it 
was stated from the outset that the speech 
was directed to black students. Why 
should anybody be forced to listen to so- 
meone who isn't even speaking to hun? 
Black history week only serves to drive 
us apart from each other rather than bind 
us together. There is more cross-racial 
unity on campus when it isn't black 
history week than when it is. The Chris- 
tian brotherly love spoken about every 
time black history week rolls around is to 
no avail. After my last letter to the Ac- 
cent it seems every black student hates my 
guts. I have heard snide remarks and 
other conunents about my letter while 
passing through gatherings of blacks at 
different times on campus. But not one 
of them has had the decency to talk face- 
to-face. Where is this supposed interac- 
tion when only one person writes to me 
while all the others talk and snicker 
behind my back? Where is this interac- 
tion when so many are afraid to speak 
their views because the few who do are 
considered racists?

Genuinely Concerned Friends? 

By Gordon Bietz 

Once upon a time in Fenton Forest 
Lucy Lamb became ill. As with any il- 
lness in Fenton Forest, the other forest 
folks came to visit Lucy to see how she 
was doing. As it turned out she was not 
really doing very well. She became 
weaker and weaker and was not able to 
move from the place where she lay in the 
forest meadow. Many of the Fenton 
Forest folk seemed genuinely concerned 
about her health and would visit her quite 
regularly. They would come and ask her 
many questions about her health. 

Sam Lamb, who considered himself an 
especially good friend, would come to 
where she was lying and offer his en- 
couragement. He would tell her that he 
was sure she would make it and he would 
talk about how one has to think positive 
thoughts if he is going to get well. While 
he was doing all of this talking he would 
use up a lot of his energy and would 
snack on the grass that was around Lucy 
as she lay there in the meadow. 

Freddy the Fox also came to visit. He 
was normally not too friendly with sheep, 
but with Lucy it was different. He had 
somehow become her friend, and as he 
talked to her and tried to give her his en- 
couragement he would— 
absentmindedly— dig in the meadow

around her, looking for field mice that 
could provide him some food. Freddy 
told her that if she just would have faith 
she would get better. 

Gruf the Bear also came to visit poor 
Lucy. He said that he felt badly that she 
was not doing well and suggested that 
some herbs might help. However, Gruf 
didn't bring any of the herbs that he 
thought would help her get well. And 
while he talked to her he nervously pac- 
ed around and around where she lay in 
the meadow. 

Many of the birds came to give en- 
couragement to Lucy Lamb. They would 
talk to her while they walked around and 
pecked at blades of grass with their beaks, 
looking for insects to eat and to take back 
to their young. 

Finally, Lucy did begin to get a little 
better. She seemed to gain a very little 
strength and her appetite returned, which 
was a good sign that she was getting bet- 
ter. But she was not strong enough to 
walk, and all of her "friends" had eaten 
or ruined all of the grass that was within 
the reach of her twisting head. So Lucy 
Lamb died not of her sickness but of 
hunger because of the thoughtlessness of 
her friends, who ate her grass while they 
comforted her with words.

Marshall Islands Intramurals 

By Robert Shanko 

Here at Southern College we get wrap- nament undefeated. As one islander put 

ped up with our own school intramural it, "For being foreigners, those guys 

sports programs and too often forget that aren't half bad.' 
two of our finest athletes are extending 

the S.C. thrill of victory halfway across 
the world. Yes, on a little island of the 
Marshall islands in the South Pacific, on 
the small land of Ebeye, sports goes on. 
Here on this island, Brito and Shanko are 
sharing their sportsman-like traits with 
the natives. 

Ebeye's new reaeational center basket- 
ball and volleyball tournaments have 
been endured and conquered! Their 
volleyball team, consisting of three Stu- 
dent Missionaries and three natives, 
showed their skills in sweeping the tour- 

Island Finals 
The Reefs 
The Ebites 

Likewise, in basketball the skills Brito 
and Shanko acquired at Southern from 
such learned coaches as Jaecks and Ka- 
mieneski proved to be flawless as they in 
turn passed the help-aids on to their 
native comrades, resulting in another 
team victory for The Reefs. 

When one of the members of the op- 
posing team thought it was legal to throw 
a fake pump on a free throw, we knew 
the game would be coconuts. 

That's all for now. Until next time, 
keep your eye on the ball and don't let 
those tempers flare. 

The Doubles Tennis Tournament 

final sign-up day is next MONDAY, 
March 17. 

By J. Randolph Thuesdee 
Before the sun and fun in Flonda, the 
Seniors picked up their Rees Series cham- 
^onship in front of a near-capacuy 
crowd at the gymnasium with an im- 
pressive 102-90 victory over the Juniors. 
Gren Cain poured in 26 points with an 
assortment of bank shots and basehne 
drives as the Senior strengths in their 
front-line players was too much for the 
much smaller Juniors. 

The championship game was over ear- 
ly it seemed, as the Juniors battled foul 
trouble and deep penetration by Semor 
guard John Grys as he handed out 17 

* Also hot for the Seniors was Randy 
Beers, who added 19 points, and Vito 
Montaperto, who had 15. Bob Murdoch 
had 30 points, while forward Steve Flynn 
and center Henry Coleman had 22 pomts 
each for the Juniors. 
' The championship game was the only 
game in the tournament that was a 
runaway. The other three games were 
'M\ decided in the final minutes, with one go- 
ing into overtime. 

In that overtime game, the Seniors ad- 
vanced to the championship by way of a 
78-72 decision over the Sophomores. In 
the first half, the Seniors played as 
though they would run away as they led 
by seven points twice during the first eight 
minutes. But the Sophomores put 
together a 13-6 run to take the lead by one 
with just three minutes left in the half. 
When the Seniors took control for a 
while in the second half, hot shooting by 
Mike Hershberger and Chad Andrews 
kept them within three at 65-62 with over 
15 mmutes gone. The teams traded 
buckets until Andrews tied it on a drive 
to the middle at 68-68. The Seniors had 
a chance for the victory in regulation, but 
time ran out. Four quick points in the 
five-minute overtime by the Seniors put 
the Sophomores at a disadvantage, and 
the Seniors held on to win. 

The best game of the Rees Series was 
the first one, in which the Juniors ad- 
vanced to the championship game with 
a nail-biting 66-65 win over the 
Freshmen. With the crowd really getting 


Slapshot on Hockey 

into it, the Freshies played an inspired 
game as Dave Nemess pumped in jumper 
after jumper and Brent Barney crashed 
in a few himself as they moved out to a 
five-point halftime lead. The team suf- 
fered a tremendous blow to their front 
line as center Clarence Wilson went down 
with a knee injury midway through thp 
first half. 

In the second half, though, it was tiie 
Juniors who played inspired as Steve 
Flynn and Bob Murdoch came alive 
while the Freshies' big men got into foul 
trouble. But what made this game close 
all the way to the end were the clutch 
3-point shots by Nemess and Kevin Pride 
to answer the clutch free-throw shooting 
by the Juniors. After two throws by 
Barry Manzella put the Juniors up by 
three with the clock winding down, tlie 
Freshmen tried to get the ball to either 
Nemess or Pride for a tying three-point. 
With those two well-covered, it was Nick I 
George who put the shot up. The buzzer 
sounded and Flynn swatted the ball out 
of the cylinder, clearly goaltending, and 
looks of shock could be seen in the Junior 
team's faces because it looked like George | 
put up a three-point attempt. But the of- 
ficial ruling was that Nicky had only one 
foot in back of the three-point line when 
he took the shot, and the Juniors squeak- 
ed it out by one. 

The Series was enjoyed by all who I 
came by, naturally, and most of the 
Freshmen and Sophomores are looking 
forward to getting a shot at the cham- | 
pionship next year. 

Awards were given out during and 1 
after Saturday night's action. The Scott

went to Greg Grisso, Clarence Wilson,

Part-time Students Account for Most Enrollment Growth 

"Almost all" the growth in college enroUment since 1979 is attributable to more 
part-time students, the College Board reports. 

Pait-time enrollment at two-year schools rose 14 percent, while at four-year col- 
leges it grew six percent, the board's Annual Survey of Colleges revealed last week. 

Average fuU-time enrollment inched up only one percent during the same period.

Dear Editor: 

I write to you once more on the issue 
of Black History Week. Shelem Flemons 
wrote an intelligent critique of my last let- 
ter to you. One of the three criticisms Mr. 
Flemons made of my letter is technically 
accurate, yet I feel he missed the 
substance of the issue, that he skirted the 
real problems and instead dealt only with 
the errors in my delivery. 

My generalizations about the attitudes 
of black and white students constituted 
a fallacy. What I should have said was 
many or some students. As I did say in 
my letter I received over 100 comments 
last year on my letter to the editor, I 
received many comments before I wrote 
that letter last year and all of those were 
unsolicited. I have also solicited many 
opinions both this year and last. 1 had a 
solid basis for my generalization. Mr. 
Flemons may be comfortable writing off 
my perceptions as gross generalizations 
and therefore invalid— but that does 
nothing to negate the very real problems 
between the races that is evident on this 
campus. Only a blind man or a fool 
would deny that there is a problem. 

On the issue of my not giving Black 
History Week a chance: was there any 
difference? Mr. Flemons commits the 
same error that he accuses me of. His ar- 
ticle was submitted after Black History 
Week was over and after he had seen that 
there was no new perspective (and that 
the attendance at chapels was incredibly 
low again — which is soUd evidence that 
there indeed is a problem). Yet he still 
used the point as a criticism of my letter. 
The last point that "American 
History— the Black Contribution Week" 
would be just a euphemism for Black 

History Week is not accurate. I was talk 
ing about (as was made clear m my arti 
de of last year that Mr. Flemons might 
have looked up in the library) a fun- 
damental change in focus that migW 
draw us closer together and put Black 
History Week within the context of an 
American tradition that asserts the cen- 
tral importance of our status as 
Americans above any ethnic or racial fac- 
tors. The comparison of my suggestion 
to that of a "World History-the 
American Contribution" is nonsense. We 
as black, white, or yeUow are all 
American citizens. We are not world 
citizens." There is no world government, 
world society, or world culture by which 
allegiances are formed. There is a very 
real American country and culture and 
there can be a choice of allegiance to it 
or of an aUegiance to an idea such as the 
greater importance of the minorities over 
the whole. 

In Mr. Flemons' last sentence he says 
that he is convinced that "As Black 
History Week encourages us to interact 
with each other, it can only make us bet- 
ter people..." From where does he get 
this? Where is the evidence of a greater 
interaction? What facts did he present to 
support this? Where is the evidence that 
we are engaging in any kind of a con- 
structive dialogue? He gives none, yet he 
concludes that everything is fine in the 
face of all the evidences to the contrary. 
It is so easy to tear down, it is so easy to 
pick at an argument, yet it is so hard to 
construct positive and persuasive pro- 
grams for change. Mr. Flemons gives no 
suggestions for a better future of relations 
between the races here on campus, in- 
stead he focuses on the petty and the 
specific over the meaning and the 
substance. And at the end of his letter he

we categorize and label each other and

talking about our relationship problems 
on this campus has not earned me the 
label of "racist" or "bigot." If anyone 
feels this way about me please come to 
see me and we can sit down and talk to 
each other and listen to each other. If we 
can, then maybe others can, too, and 
maybe this could be the beginning to the 
end of our problem at this school and in 
our churches outside of the school. I will 
continue trying to love my brothers and 
sisters in Christ whether they be white, 
black, Spanish, Asian, male, female, 
rich, middle-class, or poor. My Bible tells 
me to (Galations 3:28), my love for Christ 
tells me to, and the richness of every in- 
dividual human relationship I've had tells 
me to. Let's love each other even if we 
can't like each other. Let's listen to each 
other and respect each other. Let's be 
honest and open even if it means saying 
difficult things, or even yelling in anger. 
We all must begin to try or we'll never 
get out of this pathetic cycle of anger and 
resentment, of whispers behind backs, of 
labeling and rejecting. So much good 
could come of this change and so much 
evil if it stays as it is.

The End of the Line- 

Dear Editor: 

The Bible states, "And we know that 
all things work together for the good of 
those who love him..." This can be our 
experience here at Southern College if we 
will only go to our brothers and sisters 
with whom we have differences and make 
things right. Sun Hickman and I have 
talked and settled our differences. We 
have chosen to have our letters printed 
together to signify that by God's grace a 
bond of friendship has developed. We 
hope that this bond will spread 
throughout our campus and will bum 
through all barriers. I found that Stan is 
very interested m the well-being of our 
campus. With this common ground to 
stand on, we can make Black History 
Week a stepping stone to improved racial 
relationships and not a stumbling block. 
It is my prayer that every student at 
Southern College will choose to take an 
active part in making Black History Week 
a success, that they will interact with one 
another, attend the discussions on rela- 
tionships, and realize that we are all 
brothers and sisters. Together we stand- 
Divided we fall. 

Dear Editor: 

I feel 1 must voice my feelings about 
the men of Talge HaU. I am a freshman 
here this year. When I first amved here 
at Southern College, I was certain that I 
wasn't going to enjoy my stay here. I was 
used to being at home and enjoying the 
courtesy of the men there. I thought that 
no one here could be as courteous or mce 
as those at home, but I found I was 
wrong. It is because of some of Talge' s 


...And the Last Word 

Dear Editor: 
I must protest the recent trend the 

Last week Shelem called me and asked 
if we could get together and talk. We did 
talk that very day for two hours. This 
conversation, by Shelem's suggestion, 
began and ended in prayer. Two Chris- 
tian brothers sat together and tried to 
understand each other's thoughts and 
feelings. I did not know Shelem before, 
yet now I consider him a friend. This kind 
of communication opens the mind, 
touches feelings, and creates relation- 
ships. This is what we so desperately need 
to do on campus. 

My hope for Black History Week is 
that it will become a better vehicle for 
bringing us together. Let's enliven Black 
History Week with student discussion 
and prayer groups. If we will argue and 
still pray together we will build bonds of 
mutual respect. Black History is impor- 
tant, but keep in mind that the greatest 
black leaders and the history of the Black 
race's suffering point toward the 
necessity of developing a color-blind 
world, unprejudiced, unpreferential. This 
is the hope for all peoples — true equali- 
ty, true acceptance. Black History 'Week 
should develop and encourage these at- 
titudes and set up the means by which 
communication can begin right here on 
this campus between our students. 

Stan Hickman and Shelem Flemons

and patience— Stan.

to three things. First, many of the most 
popular computer science courses now re- 
quire the use of micro-computers. Se- 
cond, there is a large selection of popular 
micro-computer software made available 
by Southern College to both students and 
faculty for educational and personal use. 
And third, more and more students are 
realizing the advantages of using micro- 
computer software for preparing 
homework projects such as term papers 
and business spread sheets. 

In order to make the micro-computer 
resources more efficient for the students, 
faculty, and the computer center, the 
Southern College computer center and 
Computer Science department have 
developed the Micro Support System. 
MSS binds many of the micro computers 
on campus into a relationship with the 
larger HP3000 computer which provides 
the micro-computer users with many 
useful features that they otherwise would 
not have. Such an arrangement is often 
called a local area network or just simp- 
ly a network. 

As mentioned above. Southern College 
makes available to faculty and students 
many very popular software products. 
These are not free to Southern College, 
but must be purchased, often for large 
amounts. Because of the high cost, it is 
impossible for Southern College to buy 
enough of these programs so that every 
student and teacher may have one of his 
or her own, so a limited number of each 
have been purchased which must be 
shared arribng those wishing to use them. 
MSS monitors such software activity, 
preventing more copies being used than 
were paid for. 

Many people who do projects using the 
micro-computers also do them using the 
HP3000. What is done on one is normally 
separate and not transferable to the 
other. MSS allows you to do one part of 
a project on the HP3000, which has the 
advantages of a mainframe, and the rest 
of it on a micro, which is best for other 
things. MSS also allows teachers to re- 

HP3000: the administrative system 

quest the students to produce their 
homework projects using the same data 
as their classmates. 

Unfortunately, not all of the micro- 
computers on campus are connected to 
the MSS network. This is due to a varie- 
ty of reasons such as the cost of install- 
ing the wires and the incompatibihties of 
some micro-computers with the system. 

In general, only IBM-PC's and IBM 
compatibles are connected to MSS. This 
excludes Apples and Kaypros, two rather 
common computers on campus. The 
reasons for their exclusion were partly 
technical and partly economic, but were 
primarily based on an analysis of the 
common uses these micros were put to. 

MSS is designed for convenience, not 
frustration. If you ever have trouble 
understanding what it is doing or how to 
use it, let the computer center know. 
Center workers will try to help you with 
you current problems and plan changes 
to MSS that will make it better in the 

Elderhostel Camp Held for Older Youth 

By J. T. SItim and Rondi Bauer 

This week Southern College is doing 
something different. It is sponsoring its 
first Elderhostel classes. 

Elderhostel is an international group 
that promotes education for those age 
sixty and over. For $205 a week, an 
Elderhostel member can enjoy six days 
room and board, five days of classes, and 
a variety of extra-curricular activies. 

Currently, thirty Elderhostel students 
are here at SC. The three classes offered 
to them are nutrition, organs and organ 
music, and the writings of Chaim Potok, 
presented by Potok himself. Extra- 
curricular activities began Sunday night 
with the International Extravaganza. 
Monday night there was a reception at 
which Judy Glass, Bill Allen, and John 
Brombaugh were introduced. The ac- 
tivities continued with tours of the Lin- 
cohi Library, Civil War battlefields, and 
the Hunter Museum. Thursday night the 
students are scheduled to attend the E.A. 
Anderson Lecture Series, and the Music 
Festival will end the week's activities on 
Friday night. . . ^ 

Shirley Spears, Director of the Con- 
ference Cemer, is delighted to have 
Elderhostel as guests. "It's reaUy exciting 
to have so many people so eager to learn. 

They get up at five in the morning to see 
Halley's Comet, and are stiU ready to go 
for their classes." 

The Elderhostel students come from all 
walks of life and from all parts of the 
country. Few have met each other, and 
few are Advehtists. 

Helen Syms of Los Angelos, Califor- 
nia, said, "It's great to see students from 
all over the world." She added about otir 
campus, "It's so nice, clean, and neat." 
She laughs. "The only problem I have is 
getting used to not drinking coffee!" 

Jean and Ervin Stewart of Johnson 
City, Tennessee, are part of our alumni 
as well as being Elderhostel students. 
They attended Southern Junior College 
around the early 1940's, and have a 
granddaughter. Missy Green, and a 
nephew, Myron Mixon, attending SC 
now. When asked about Elderhostel and 
SC, Mrs. Stewart said, "We're* 
thoroughly enjoying it." 

There are plans for another Elderhostel 
week in the Fall, but since the response 
has been so enthusiastic, there may be 
two instead of one. 

John Brombough sums it up, "This is 
a riot!" 

Eurailing for the Homebody 

By Scoit Kinsey 
in this Midasized country of Firestone 
radials and 83-cent gasoline, we often 
forget that there is another exciting way 
to travel-the train. If given a chance, 
train travel can change your thinking 
about transportation forever. 

While in Europe last summer, 1 had the 
privilege of touring by "Eurail," which 
stands for "Every Unsuspecting Rookie 
American Is Laughable." The whole idea 
behind getting a "Eurail Pass" is to save 
on buying tickets in every country you 
pass through. Ah, but what the brochures 
don't tell you is the unique and magical 
powers you have with this pass. Why, you 
can get into no end of trouble with the 
pass in the time it takes to say, "Vo es 
da bahnhof (Where is the train 

My three friends and I soon reaUzed 
that our magical pass was only good on 
trains with "second"-class cars. That 
meant a big "#2" (easy, huh?). There was 
something about getting what you paid 
for, and since our pass had "Second" on 
it, we were obliged to look for "K2" cars. 
On our first major trip, from Amster- 
dam to Brussels, we had our first inci- 
dent. We were smugly seated on a 
"second<lass" car as it pulled into a sta- 
tion. Then, as we waited for it to begin 
again, the conductor came back through 
our car and said, "This car does not go 
on." And now that he mentioned it, we 
were the only ones in the car. Scrambl- 
ing madly, we slung on our enormous 
backpacks and made a dash for the door. 
As we reached the exit, the car moved 
backwards, as if it had been unhooked 
and pushed out of the way. We leaped 
onto the platform and saw our train, 
minus us and our car, gathering speed. 
"Give chase," cried someone. Another

Why Not] 

By John Dysinger 
Students love to dream about travel I 
This fact is backed up by the results oi 
a recent Levi Strauss poll that surveyed 
over 6.000 college students. The po 
showed that more students daydreai 
about traveling than about their careenl 
or dating! 1 

Why is it that traveling is so attractivX 
to students? I think it has a lot to do wiij 
the curiosity about the world that mosi 
young people have. There are so nian« 
questions about life to be answered! 
Then, of course. I think the idea c 
adventure has something to do with it] 
too. Who doesn't like the idea of visitjnf 
new and exciting places and mixing wit| 
strange and exotic cultures? 

If traveling is so exciting to student 
then why don't more of them do it? Thl 
only two reasons I can think of are tl 
either they're too lazy or else they don'J 
have the money. There's not much I o 
do for those in the first group, butj 
would like to address the issue of thoi 
who don't think that they have i 

There's no getting around the factthj 
traveling is not cheap. In fact, it's usual 
quite expensive. But there are ways ol 
squeezing more out of your dollar. Fiisf 
there are the «bvious things. You don'I 
have to stay in first-class hotels anddlif 
at the finest restaurants. Why not tali| 
along a tent and buy your food at tl 
grocery store? You're young and haidl 
and can handle a few inconveniencal 
Besides, you usually have more adventuT 
stories to tell at the end of your trip whf| 
you travel cheap. 

Another suggestion I'd like to throi 
out is to combine school and travel. 0| 
course, travel is an education in itself, bi 
the school sponsors trips on which y( 
can earn class credit and see the world| 
the same time! Dr. Wohlers of the h 
department organizes tours to Eurei 
almost every summer. When you deil" 
the price of the tuition you earn plus « 
room and board would cost if you slay| 
here, you find out that these tours reaj 
only cost you about the price of an aiiUH 
ticket to Europe. , 

Then there is Adventist Studennra| 
(AST). This service was set upby f°» 
Kantzer. a former SC student, whoo 
extensive travel experience aU "i 
Europe and the Middle East. Aa 
organizes low-budget tours wherever y; 
want to go. It can't offer first-class m 
but it wiU give you cheap ^'ff'f.

Nights, Too 

Sy Daisy Weal 
During the Love Feast celebration held last Friday 
nE an alumnus, in his testimony, noted that the 
"ho'ol's systematic red taping was a veritable stumbling 
hloclc in his Christian path. 

Now I, too, must confess that the rules and regula- 
,„„s are indeed effecting difficulties. It is not always 
(j^y to discern their purpose— ahhough I'm sure one 
.gists— however misapplied. 

Before anyone formulates a defense on SC's behalf. 
Am rae to say that I advocate the regulations of 
behaviour. Without them, we would become quite 
beastlike. But I do prefer it when these regulations are 
consistent, appropriate, and alterable. 
Take, for example, the measure against women wear- 
ing trousers to church Friday evenings. It is my opinion 
if we can wear pants to worship God on Wednes- 
evenings, we can do the same on Friday evenmgs 
2 Sabbaths. God said that He never changes and what 
displeases Hun today will also disturb Him tomorrow. 
An excuse one Thatcher dean employed was that Fri- 
day evening is Sabbath and it is, more or less, the time 
[10 clean up and appear reverent for the holy day. 
I'm sure you can see where this Une of argument will 
ieus. It essentially places the importance on the day 
if worship rather than the Person we worship on the 
lay {not to exclude other days). 
Well, spring is here and it really won't matter that I 
I't wear pants to Friday vespers. But there is enough 
e for the administration to get through the "red tape" 
time for next winter. My legs tend to freeze when ex- 
losed to the bitter cold.

Best-selling Jewish-American author Dr. Chaim (Hay- 
im) Potok (Poe-talk) concluded the 1986 President's Lec- 
ture Series when he spoke on the topic "Religious Values 
in a Secular World" at Southern College on the even- 
ing of March 19. In addition, he will speak in the 
Physical Education Center at 10;30 a.m. on March 20. 

Dr. Potok, a conservative rabbi, is the author of sbi 
novels set in contemporary Jewish life in America, and 
a narrative. Wanderings, a 4,000-year history of the 
Jewish people. He is most widely known for The Chosen 
and The Promise, the former of which has been made 
into a movie. 

Potok, who cannot remember a time when he couldn't 
read, was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1928. He was 
raised in the orthodox Jewish tradition in the immigrant 
decades of the thirties and forties. His early adulthood 
included traditional study at Yeshiva University in New 
York and at the Jewish Theological Seminary, where he 
was ordained as a rabbi. He served as a chaplain in the 
Korean War, during which his commitment to writing 

"Mit Handgranate durch 
halb Europa Gereist' 

was stre.nghtened. Potok, now living in the United 
States, has Uved in Israel and travelled the Orient with 
his wife, Adena, and their three children, 

"1 think 1 stumbled quite inadvertently upon the cen- 
tral problem of any system of faith in the secular world," 
acknowledges Dr. Potok. In The Chosen, his first book 
pubUshed m 1967, Potok brought out the challenges met 
by those caught between secular and personal religious 
convictions. Potok addresses anti-Semitism and the 
diverse Jewish responses to it in his third book, In the 
Beginning. Each successive novel deals with the cuhure 
confrontation which Potok calls "core-to-core cuhure 

Seventh-day Adventists can identify with many of 
Potok's themes. The opportunity to learn and perhaps 
better understand ourselves is one well worth taking. The 
following books by Dr. Potok are available at the Cam-

Lev, The Book of Lights, Davita's Harp, and

This was the title to one of the five articles printed 
in various newspapers throughout northwest Austria, in- 
cluding the Oberosterreichische Nachrichten and the 
Sakburger Nachrichtan. The title means "Explosive

human interest story for the amusement of those who 
know me. I think an EngUsh translation from the Oster- 
reich Kurier article should sum it all up quite well. 
"A 21-year-old American hoped to take a

Greece. Overjoyed about this rare piece, he stuck 
it in his pack and transported it (through Turkey,

"Carlton is a member of the Seventh-day-

Aerobics Taking Shape 
Around Southern 

Breaking the Sex Barrier 

By Dave Noltebon 
Within the last decade, America has 
been swept up by the health kick. "Slim 
and "trim" are the constant buzz-words. 
Television and the radios blare forth with 
"new and improved ways to lose 
weight " which means anything from 
eating five pounds of grapefruit a day to 
wearing a sweat suit that resembles sewn- 
together "Reynold's Wrap." Yet nothmg 
short of starvation has proven to be as 
effective as good old-fashioned exercise. 
One exercise that has caught on rapid- 
ly mainly among women, is Aerobics 
Aerobics deals with flexibility and 
muscle-tone, but the biggest factor is the 
way it strengthens the cardio-vascular 

Southern CoUege has three classes in 
aerobics and one in hydo-aerobics that 
run during the semester. Robin WilUams, 
a sophomore currently attending 
Southern, teaches one floor aerobics class 
at the Spalding Elementary School and 
a hydo-aerobics class in the P.E. Depart- 
ment's swimming pool. These classes 
draw many community women who come 
for the social atmosphere as much as for 
the exercise. The classes that run in the 
dorm are taught by Angie Burke and 

Blanca Grand. These classes run Sunda. 
through Thursday, with each class being 
attended by approximately 20 girls. 

Dr Robert Kamieneski, Chairman ot 
the Health, Physical Education, and 
Recreation Department, when asked 
about the benefits and populanty of the 
sport, stated, "You get out of aerobics 
what you put into it. If you want to real- 
ly push, it can be a great workout. The 
reason most women seem to like it, 
though, is the fact that it is done in a 
group. It's more of a social setting than 
a competitive exercise Uke football or 
Softball, for example." 

There are other reasons for par- 
ticipating in aerobics. Tamara Staley 
said, "I feel great after working out. It 
really keeps me in shape." Another girl, 
who wished to remain anonymous, con- 
fided, "I do aerobics for myself, but I 
also do it for the guys. I mean, who wants 
to date a girl with flabby thighs?" 

No matter what the reason for par- 
ticipating in aerobics it continues to be an 
excellem method to stay fit. Whether you 
want to drop a few pounds or just get 
together for an enjoyable workout, 
aerobics is the way to go.

Stephanie was talked into signing up by 
her brothers, Brian and Stephen, who are 
captain and co<aptain, respectively 
Stephanie said that at first she was afraid 
of being hurt and having the guys look 
down on her, but things have turned out 
Sy well. She stated, "The guys have 
really been great. They're very con- 
siderate on the court, and I've received 
a lot of encouragement. 

The reaction among the players 
themselves has been mixed. One player 
said, "I think it's a great idea. Her being 
in the game makes the people play with 
more finese." However, a different 
player confided, "If too many girls play 
it takes away from the game. You can't

Narvaez Aproaching 
Gretzky's Record 

Floor Hockey: Men Only 

By Dave Nottelson 
After writing last week's article on the 
sport of floor hockey and its unique style, 
1 noticed that one other detaU sets hockey 
apart from the rest of the sports here on 
campus: it is played exclusively by men. 
There is no girls' league, and, with one 
exception, the teams are not coed. 

I talked to Steve Jaecks, the Intramural 
Director, about there being no girls' 
leagues. When asked why no such league 
had been set up, Mr. Jaecks responded, 
"We try to establish a girls' league once 
every two or three years, but every time 
we do, the same thing happens. The same 
thing," Mr. Jaecks went on to explain, 
"is a Umited sign-up of perhaps 20 girls." 
Mr. Jaecks also noted, "If I wanted to, 
I could really rush floor hockey in the 
girls' dorm and get plenty of sign-ups, but 
then there's no commitment and the 
season is just one forfeit after another." 
There are some statistics that might ex- 

plain this lack of interest. An average of 
220 people sign up for intramural basket- 
ball and 240 is the average number for 
Softball. The average for floor hockey, 
however, is approximately 70. This shows 
a lack of interest for floor hockey in 
general, not just among the girls. 

Why the overall lack of interest? Jen-y 
Russell, a floor hockey captain, offers an 
explanation. "When kids are growing up 
their parents play football and Softball 
with them, but how many parents play 
floor hockey? There's too much special 
equipment to just play it in the back 

No matter what the reason, there is no 
giri's league and more than likely will not 
be one in the future. As Mr. Jaecks points 
out, "Until more girls REALLY want to 
play the game, there simply won't be a 
girls' league." 

By William McKnight 
The highlight of this year's floor 
hockey season is Julio Narvaez's race to 
reach Wayne Gretzky's record of 92 goals 
in a season. Narvaez has scored a total of 
one goal this season for Dale Lacra's 
team (0-4). This leaves him only 91 goals 
shy of the mark. With three games left 
for Lacra, it will be close. 

Kansas School Pays Refs by 
Their CaUs 

Marymount CoUege of Kansas now 
pays basketball refs according to how 
well they call home games. 

After the games, a five-person panel 
grades the refs' performance. For 
"poor" calls, the ref gets $55 for the 
night's work. For "good" games, the ref 
is paid $100. 

Pittsburgh Trustee May Sue 
Villanova Freshman Due to 
Bribe Allegation 

Doug West, a freshman on Villanova's 
basketball team, alleged in a Kentucky 
newspaper article that U. Pittsburgh 
trustee Joseph Haller offered him $10,000 
to attend Pittsburgh. 

But Haller apparently now is prepar- 
ing to sue West, Villanova's athletic 
department reports, to clear his name and 
protect Pittsburgh's athletic program's 

The chart below will help illustrate the 
tense closeness of the race. The sports 
staff will try to keep up with Narvaez's 
goals and keep you up to date on his pro- 
gress toward the magic number 92.

Congrats on Potok 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to congratulate and say a 
great big "Thank-you!" to Dr. Allen and 
everyone else responsible for bringing 
Chaim Potok to our campus. Judging by 
the attendance at each of his meetings, I 
am not alone in my excitement. I en- 
thusiastically encourage bringing more 
speakers of his caliber to our campus. I 
think we all would rather see another 
Potok than another Jerry Clower. 

Speakers like Potok appeal to the in- 
tellectual in all of us and inspire us to 
think about ourselves, our own culture 
confrontations, and our religion. 

Once again, thank you. I look forward 
to attending more lectures like Potok's in 
the future.

I suppose some of the younger genera-

and not too up on such things, but I 
would like to comment on some of the 
letters I've been reading in the Accent. 

Since graduating from SMC over 30 
years ago, I have learned an awful lot 
about life, love, and all that goes with it. 
I have been married for 32 years and met 
my spouse on the campus of SMC 35 
years ago. 

I want to know what has happened to 
the "good old days" when the guys and 


Guys should understand that girls, no 
matter what age, are still learning and be-

Dear Editor: 

"Hi!" From the Orlando extension of 
yourselves. Remember us? 

Ya'U sure gave us a shock when we got 
the two latest issues of the Accent. The 
things we say to each other when we're 
in love! Teh, Teh. We got a bit worried 
about your little "messages" to each 
other, but only for a minute. Ya'U had 
us believing you were really serious about 
what you thought of each other, but then 
we figured it out. You're just funnin', 
right? You really had us going for a 
while. I guess the joke's on us. 

We love and miss ya'U. Drop us a line

Love to Travel 

Dear Editor: 

Thanks for printing the articles 
"Eurailing for the Homebody" and 
"Why Not Travel?" 

The first, accurately and humorously 
written by Scott Kinsey, brought back a 
flood of familiar memories from my 
simUar adventures backpacking through 
Europe this past summer. It sounds as if 
my own frustrations, nights on train sta- 
tion floors, and language barriers were 
shared by many others whUe traveUing by 
EuraU. It's easier to laugh at these situa- 
tions when you know someone else has 
gone through the same things and surviv- 
ed. You don't feel quite so stupid. And, 
in talking with others, I understand that 
these experiences often become some of 
the highlights of the trip, as time passes.

dreamed of having for years and would

Richard Moody made the following 
xecli at the rally. 

My fellow Americans, flag-wavers, 
itriols, and Little Debbie lovers: In this 
ne of treachery, unprovoked terrorism, 
id transgression of the free world's right 
liberty, we must pool our vast human 
inrces and vanquish the godless horde. 

As Thomas Paine said, "The cause of 
America is, in a great measure, the cause 
of all mankind. We must put aside our 
foolish petty pursuits such as food, 
clothing, and shelter to overcome this 
assault of this mighty nation's integrity. 
Tyranny, like the devil, is not easily con- 
quered. Only in the immediate mobiliza- 
tion of our country's unyielding defense 
forces can we hope to overcome this in- 
fringement of democracy, and even 
though we may not be official recruits of 
the armed services, we still have the 
power, yea, the duty, to help enforce the 
rights of this land so honourable." Let 
us remember the final words of the 
Declaration of Independence, "We 
mutually pledge to each other our lives, 
our fortunes, and our sacred honour."

Business Department 
Adds Computers 

By William McKnight 

Last semester, the Southern College 
business department received a donation 
of $50,000 for the purchase of computer 
equipment to enhance their computer lab. 
The funds, given to the school by an in- 
terested anonymous party, have been 
used to purchase ten Zenith computers 
and almost that many printers. There is 
still enough money left to purchase ten 
more Zeniths, and eventually all twenty 
will be supported by printers. 

The new computer lab, the location of 
which in Brock HaU is stiU under negotia- 
tion, is expected to be fully operational 
by the end of the summer in preparation 
for the 1986-87 school year. 

In addition to emulation of the 

Hewlett-Packard mainframe, the com- 
puters will also be supported with soft- 
ware such as Lotus 1-2-3, dBase III, and 
Wordstar. There will also be programs 
supplied by the business textbook 
publishers which may be used in conjunc- 
tion with the textbook. Examples of this 
are accounting, statistics, and quan- 
titative methods homework problems. 

The lab will be primarily for Business 
majors, although a usage policy has not 
been established. This is a major step, 
said chairman of the business depart- 
ment Wayne VandeVere. "We give 
the students a chance to not only learn 
textbook theory, but apply the informa- 
tion to a real-life situation." 

Destiny /HeartSong 
Perform at S.C, 

Destiny and HeartSong, two of S.C. s 
talented student groups, joined forces on 
Friday evening, March 21, to present 
"Parallels," a present-day look at the 
parables of the New Testament. 

According to Destiny's student direc- 
tor, senior Kevin Rice, "ParaUels" is real- 
ly a collection of smaller skits based on 
the allegorical teachings of Jesus. "We 
chose 'Parallels' for a title because that s 
what a parable is-a simple story with a 
parallel message." Skits featuring the 
stories of the Prodigal Son and the Good 
Samaritan were included in the program 

Interspersed between the skits that 
made up the bulk of the program were 
songs performed by the seven-member 
band HeartSong. "The music is another 
sort of paraUel," said Rice The 
messages of the skits are echoed m the 
songs" Featured selections mcluded 

"The Prodigal," "Friends," and 
"Forever There," 

Destiny is composed of 15 students of 
various backgrounds who volunteer their 
time and talents to present gospel- 
oriented drama. While both Destiny and 
HeartSong have toured extensively in the 
Southeast, Friday's presentation was the 
first time both groups had performed 
together. A second collaboration is 
scheduled for April, when the two groups 
begin a joint tour to Florida.

3ln His Words 

An interview with Dr. Potok 

Best-selling author Chaim Potok 
answered the questions of Accent writer 
Blanca Grand on Thursday, March 20. 

Accent: Could you pronounce your 
name, please. 

Potok: The first name is pronounced 
"High-um" with a guttural "H." The se- 
cond name is pronounced "Poe-talk." 
The second name is Slavic, and it means 
a river or a stream, a fast-running stream. 
Accent: Many of our students here 
might not be acquainted with Judaism. 
Can you explain where you stand, 
especially concerning conservatism and 

Potok: I would place myself inside the 
conservative camp, as an observant Jew 
who is a non-fundamentalist. And by that 
1 mean someone who believes in a 
historical development of the tradition 
and at the same time is passionate about 
that tradition, its history, its observances, 
and who's raised his family that way, and 
very committed to the notion of a peo- 
ple, Jewish people, Israel, observance, 
destiny, behavior, morality, and very, 
very committed to ongoing, connecting 
links across groups, and very much op- 
posed to sealing oneself off from the out- 
side world. 

Accent: Can you mention some details 
about being an observant Jew. 

Potok: (Laughs) There's no problem 
eating here. Normally in a situation of 
this kind I would eat fish only. Matter of 
fact, when I come home tonight I'm go- 
ing to a Publisher's dinner in 
Philadelphia, get off the plane and go to 
that diimer, and they have, they know 
what to prepare. 

Accent: fVhat about Sabbath activities? 
Potok: Reading, sometimes we'll listen to 
an opera, sit and talk, we'll take a 
nap... it's a rest day. 
Accent: Is Sabbath a family day? 
Potok: Yes, absolutely! That's exactly 
what it is. A time to recharge the bat- 
teries, study, talk, rest at ease with the 
world, conviviality. Friends come over 
and we have dinner together. 

Accent: Last night you spoke on 
religious values in a secular world. How 
do you feel we should relate to God in 
this secular age? 

Potok: Oh, I think that's a very per- 
sonal problem. My feeling in that regard 
is that this is something you talk about 
with your parents, your pastor, your 
minister, your closest friends. Very often 

what happens is that each mdividu^ 
human being sort of has a very deeply 
personal understanding of what it is tha 
we mean by God even though we may all 
use the same vocabulary. That part of the 
creation of that personal feeling has to do 
with the way each of us reacts to the 
worid the way each of us feels about the 
world. The needs that each of us has. For 
the most part, God is what we would caU 
the meaningfutoess of existence. That to 
which we attribute existence as being ot 
intrinsic value, and having said that, we 
each of us shape that concept of God 
Does it meet our own very deepest needs . 
Accent: To what extent are your 
characters factual or maybe even 

Potok: I think that most of them are 
fusions of different personalities of the 
people that I know plus, of course, the 
workings of the imagination. The only 
two people that I've written about that 
I cannot myself find individuals for in 
real life are the boxer in the hospital scene 
in The Chosen and Arthur Leiden in The 
Book of Lights. Although people say that 
there was somebody like that in the 
seminary when I was there, I really have 
no recollection of such a person. My feel- 
ing is that I invented him out of old cloth. 
But otherwise the people that I write 
about are to some extent grounded on 
real people, but real people whose per- 
sonalities are put through the cauldrons 
of the writer's imagination and altered so 
that they can be used for the purposes of 

Accent: Was Asher Lev your most 
emotionally difficult book to write? 

Potok: Oh, every book that I'm in the 
middle of writing is the most difficult 
book to write. 1 would say that it was dif- 
ficult to write emotionally because in 
some profound sense Asher Lev is a 
metaphor for myself as a writer and all 
the difficulties that I experienced when I 
was growing up. As a writer, just 
translate the writing into art and you've 
got what I mean by a metaphor. And, of 
course, sooner or later the writing is go- 
ing to get me into a lot of trouble, as it 
already has with certain fundamentalist 
Jewish groups. Just as Asher Lev's non- 
submission gets him into trouble. 

Accent: / was surprised by the fact that 
you have an unpublished book. When did 
you write it? 

Potok: Well, the first novel that I wrote 
had nothing to do with Jews; it was about 

Dr. Chaim Potok 

Koreans and Americans. And that was 
taken by an editor in a publishing house, 
but it was too arty a novel and the 
publisher felt that he couldn't make any 
money out of it, so he said he would 
publish it and just warehouse it; so I took 
it back, and it's never been pubUshed. 
Accent: How difficult, then, was it to 
get The Chosen, your first book, 

Potok: Four editors saw it, and the 
fourth one took it. 

Accent: Are you working on anything 
at the moment? 
Potok: Yeah. 

Accent: Are you able to comment on 

Potok: I think it's probably better not 
to say too much about it because you say 
something about it and then in the work- 
ing out it sort of changes and then before 
you know it, they've published something 
about it. Somebody asked me yesterday 
about it and I said it would have a visit 
to the Soviet Union, but that's about all 
I thmk I would say about it. 

Accent: What are your thoughts on be- 
ing here on our campus? 

Potok: I feel very good about it. I think 
it's a marvelous experience. Writers live 
very lonely lives, and I think it's very im- 
portant for them to get out from time to 
time and see what the world is Uke and 
meet all kinds of people. To exchange 
ideas with them and interact with them. 
I think it's the kiss of death for a writer 
to stay locked up inside his own world 
and inside his own culture, just to keep 
parasitically drawing on that world. I cer- 
tainly can't live that way. 
Accent: I've had my opportunity to 



question you. Is there something on your 
mind you would like to say to the 
students and faculty of S. C. ? 

Potok: What I would urge students to 
do is to take their studies seriously and 
to realize that they only have one time 1 
around in this world and if they mess un 
their early years they're going to know! 
about that all their lives. There's reallyl 
no going back. The world, no matter! 
what it is that it says, has very high regard! 
for people who take learning seriouslyl 
and suceed at that learning. In America I 
at any rate, it is still the case that educaj 
tion is a fundamental key that openj 
many, many doors. At this point in lifj 
for a young person there really ought tl 
be nothing more important than leamingl 
In a hierarchy of values, studying reallJ 
should precede the girlfriend and the cai 
and the television set no matter how hard 
it is to study.

iitainly the students have opinions and ideas. The

But that s okay, the senators aren't paid for their time

If they were paid they would do something to deserve

Ah! But soft, what did I say? Student government? 
Does such a thing exist at Southern College? Quickly 
scanning my dictionary, I find the word "government," 
and under it reads, "the body of persons that constitutes 
the governing authority of a poUtical a unit or 
organization." Small wonder, then, that we have a Stu-

with such absolute rule; an administration which en-

combined with Nazi Germany. And what is the plan for 
next year? Weekend leaves are being reduced to promote 
a spu-it of community. I can imagine the same kind of 
spirit existing at San Quentin or Alcatraz. 

But, I digress. My only wish is for students to be more 
involved m actual policy-making and breaking. Were this 
an actuality I feel some of the more oppressive policies 
would topple and the S.A. could do more than direct 
social activities. Perhaps legalism and narrow- 
mindedness would no longer fiow into Happy Valley to 
stagnate and this vaporous apathy which grips us would 
dissipate m the light breeze of freer thought.

Gymnasts Perform 
Homeshow April 12 

Gretzky Keeps Record 

By Ramona Gennkk 

The Souihem CoUege Gymnastic Team 
will finish their performances for this 
year with their homeshow Saturday 
night, April 12. 

Under the direction of Ted Evans, this 
year's team has traveled to many 
neighboring academies, such as Mount 
Pisgah and Highland. They have also per- 
formed for the Georgia State Peniten- 
tiary. "This was done on a trial basis last 
year," said Evans. "They liked the show 
so much they asked us to return." 

Not only does the team act as a 
recruiting tool for the college during its 
visits to the academies, said Evans, it also 
exemplifies the physical excellence one 
can achieve through the Christian 

Evans is proud of the team, which rates 
high in talent, featuring performers such 
as Julie McClarty with her baton and a 
poUshed doubles routine by Mike Accar- 
do and Kim Robertson. 

On trips, emphasis is not placed solely 

on entertainment, however. As the gym- 
nastics team for Southern College, its 
members represent our school and prin- 
ciples Southern stands for, Evans said. 
Religious services, such as evening 
vespers, are often conducted by the team 
as part of the total outreach program. 

Evans is looking forward to home- 
show, stating that the team's positive at- 
titude and great spirit have brought them 
a long way towards reaching their 

Evans said that this year's homeshow 
will feature many routines. A block 
routine will be performed by Kurt 
Rogers. A five man group will execute a 
chair routine, and a special blacklight act 
will be performed in the dark. Steve 
Flynn and Sean Mastin will be doing a 
doubles routine called "Big Brother," 
and an extraordinarily talented former 
SC gymnast, Paul Hunt, will be making 
a guest appearance.

Coed Softball 
Tournament Planned 

By Dave'Notlelson 

On April 21-24, the Health, Physical 
Education, and Recreation Department 
and the Student Association will be spon- 
soring a coed Softball tournament. The 
tournament (the word tournament is used 
for lack of a better word), which will be 
followed by an ice cream feed after the 
last game on the 24th. It will be held on 
these dates specifically to avoid conflict 
with exam schedules. 

The purpose of these games is to have 
fun and promote social atmosphere on 
campus. Score will be kept during the 
course of the game, but special rule 
modifications will be made for the game 
to de-emphasize competition and en- 
courage social interaction. Steve Jaecks, 
Intramural Director, commented, "The 

scores in these games are of little conse- 
quence. We're running the program so 
the students can be together and have 
fun." But while competition is to be low- 
keyed, the team members should be 
prepared to play hard also. Mr. Jaecks 
voices a concern in this area. "While we 
aren't out for blood in these games, the 
players have to be somewhat serious. We 
can't have total silliness on the field 
because people get hurt that way. The 
games will be played by the rules! 

This event has been well platmed by the 
HPER Department and the S.A. officers. 
The games, along with the ice cream feed, 
are guaranteed to be an enjoyable time 
for everyone involved. 

Russell 8 
Boyle 5 

Three second-period goals by team 
captain Jerry Russell propelled his team 
to victory over Boyle Tuesday night, and 
with the victory, Russell clinched first 
place for this season with a record of 6-1 . 
After one period, the teams tied 2-2 
before Russell took command. In all, 
Russell collected five goals, with John 
Grys getting the other three. Angel 
Echmendia scored three goals for Boyle's 
team, which ended the season 3-4. 

Mellert 5 
Miskiewicz 3 

Captain Rob Mellert single-handedly 
out-scored Miskiewicz's team as he 
scored four times in his team's victory 
Sunday night. After a first-period goal by 
J. Randolph Thuesdee off a screen-tip, 
Mellert got rolling in the second period 
with three straight scores. John 
Miskiewicz scored another goal late in the 
period off another screen by Thuesdee to 
pull within one after two, but Mellert 
scored a goal eight seconds into the third 
period to take the wind out of 
Miskiewicz's sails. Dave Potter scored an 
insurance goal in the third period. With 
the win, Mellert improved his team's 
record to 4-1. 

Miskiewicz 6 
Lacra 2 

Jeff Olson scored a hat-trick 
Miskiewicz's cruise over Lacra Mondl 
night. Olson opened the scoring with| 
shot coming from just outside the crea 
and captain John Miskiewicz foUowJ 
that with a pretty goal as he took the pu J 
from his own end, got around twoo 
Lacra's wingers, split the defense, 
fired a shot from ten feet out. MiskiewiJ 
added another goal in the third perioi 
and Ted Evans also scored for Miskiewil 
(4-3). Terry Wolfe scored both goals f 
the third period for Lacra, who sl| 
hadn't won a game (0-6).

More Congratulations 

Dear Editor: 

1 want to commend Dr. William Allen 
and the Administration of Southern Col- 
lege for developing the Elderhostel pro- 
gram, and particularly for inviting Chaim 
Potok to the campus. The stimulating 
dialogue the faculty and students enjoyed 
with Potok and the lectures he gave at the 
two assemblies represent, in my judg- 
ment, a high water mark at Southern Col- 
lege. The entire event of Adventists inter- 
facing with Jews, Methodists, 
Presbyterians, Catholics, etc., represents 
Adventism at its best. In a time when a 
premium seems to have been placed on 
parochiaUsm, the Elderhostel program 
and the visit of Chaim Potok represents 
a breath of fresh air.

The crash occurred 
during an attempted pass

When S.C students 
elected Brent Van Arsdell 
to the position of Southern 
Accent editor, they knew 
they were choosing a pro- 
fessional. However, they 
did not realize the true 
caliber of this Uterary 
giant. Now, having ac- 
cepted an invitation to join 
the staff of The Interna- 
tional Enquirer, Accent 
readers are realizing the 
true quality of the jour- 
nalism with which they 

have been presented. 

He has courageously ex- 
posed the school's wasteful 
fiscal policy, which was 
spent on cultural ex- 
periences, such as the 
"Chamber Series" con- 
certs, on this campus. 

Brent's finesse in handl- 
ing delicate social issues 
and interpersonal situa- 
tions has won him much 
respect and admiration 
from Accent readers 
everywhere. He, as 
editorialist, certainly 
deserves the title of "The 
Happy Mediator", who 
has swayed public opinion 
towards a higher moral 

Merely the association 
with Van Arsdell has been 
payment enough for his 
loyal and dedicated staff, 
and he will be sorely miss- 
ed as Accent editor next 
year. However Brent, we 
know that with your 
talents, yours was a higher 
calling. We love you, 
Brent! See you in the fun- 
ny papers. 

Student Breaks 
Neck in Library 

By Rusty Wood 
Clark Tripper, a fourth 
year freshman, majoring in 
stunts, fell and broke his 
neck in McKee Library last 

The 8:09 p.m. accident 
occurred when Tripper, 
pulling another stunt, tried 
to slide down the bannister 
on the main stairway com- 
ing down from the second 
floor to the main section in 
front of the circulation 

According to eye- 
witnesses, the Southern 
College freshman was 
sliding down at about 30 
miles per hour when he lost 

control at the turn and 
plunged headlong into the 
planter at the bottom of 
the stairway. "It was 
bad," remarked Susan 
Liar, a Southern student. 
"Clark must have lost his 
mind to try such a silly 
stunt," she said. 

He was taken by a cou- 
ple of students, with 
nothing better to do, to the 
County Hospital, where he 
is listed in good condition. 
When asked what he 
remembered about the ac- 
cident, Clark's only com- 
ment was, "Who am I?"

Conductor Arrested, Supreme Court Rules on 

Diner Mystery Solved Equality for All 

By Elisha Winel 
(Summitt) After an un- 
precented bid for funds, 
the conductor of the 
Southern College Sym- 
phony Orchestra, Orlo 
Gilbert, was arrested Mon- 
day for armed robbery. 

Gilbert, 18-year pro- 
fessor at Southern College 
of Seventh-day Adventists, 
was apprehended about 7 
p.m., after a four-hour 
stakeout at Cliff's Diner in 
Summitt. "Apparently, 
the Diner has been the 
cover for Gilbert's con- 
spiracy," said Lt. Obie of 
the Collegedale Police 
Force. "This explains why 
you never see cars parked 
in front of Cliff's during 
business hours," he added. 
Reasons have not yet been 
discovered for the recent 
move of Pic-A-Flic, 
though authorities suspect 
some connection. 

The operation, which 
had been under 
surveillance of the FBI, 
IRS, and SC campus 
security, was broken open 
Monday. Gilbert had been 
attempting his third bank 
robbery, this time at the 
Pioneer Bank in Col- 
legedale. In this case, as 
with the others, the con- 
ductor entered the bank 
with his violin case and 
asked to speak with the 
manager about financing. 
Then, when safely seclud- 
ed, he whipped a sub- 
machine gun out of the 
case, demanded the 
money, and took off. All 
money was slashed at 
Cliff's Diner, the racket 

The initial robberies 
were successful because of 
Gilbert's unique disguise: 
removable moustache, 
long blonde wig, and a 
green skirt belonging to his 
wife, according to FBI 
agent, Mortimer 

Monday, about 2:30 
■) p.m., an undercover of- 
fleer at Pioneer Bank 
became suspicious when he 
saw "such a gorgeous 
broad with such hairy 
legs!" Subsequently, 
Gilbert was recognized and 
approached. Unfortunate- 
ly for the officer, the con- 
ductor escaped by aiming 
his violin case at a nearby 

teller. The ensumg car 
chase ended at Cliff's 
Diner, where Gilbert and 
his cohorts, Marvin 
Robertson and Bruce 
Ashton, held 14 poUce of- 
ficers, a SWAT team, and 
campus security at bay for 
four hours. 

After three and a half 

the law enforcement team 
began its final maneuver: 
policemen closed in on the 
diner, SWAT members 
shot tear gas into the 
building, and campus 
security ticketed all the- 
conspirators' cars. 

When the mob was 
finally led out, Gilbert was 
interrogated as to motives. 
The leader admitted that 
the plot had been hatched 
when the SC Symphony 
discovered it was still 
$25,000 short of funds for 
an upcoming Orient Tour. 
"The trip will be such a 
good learning experience 
for these kids. I just decid- 
ed I'd do anything to raise 
the necessary dollars," ex- 
plained Gilbert. 

When questioned, 
Robertson, music depart- 
ment chairman at SC, 
responded that he "always 
tried to back up the depart- 
ment projects." Ashton, a 
professor and orchestra 
member, added, "Con- 
sidering that I have five 
family members in the 
group, it seemed wise to 
contribute to the fund 

Following Monday's ar- 
rests, several other faculty 
are under investigation. 
Among these is Wayne 
VandeVere, director of the 
Business Division, who 
was overheard discussing 
music department expense 
allocation, according to 
Wright Hall informant 
Elsie Mae Taylor, who 
asked to remain 
anonymous. It is thought 
that he advised another 
department to purchase the 
sub-machine gun, thereby 
also impUcating Industrial 
Education teacher and 
gunsmith, John Durichek. 
"Further investigations 
are in progress," said Cliff 
Meyers, head of SC cam- 
pus security. 

The Supreme Court of this nation it is an ap-

day in a landmark decision 
involving Mr. Larod vs.

when grades were given out 
solely on the basis of merit, 
when cafeteria monthly 
minimums were the same 
for all, and things really 
got even when the men's 
residence got alarms on the 
exits. But I didn't think it 
would come to this!" 

Chief Justice Rathbum, 
who wrote the opinion, 
said, "It is unusual to have 
a unanimous opinion of 
the court. But this country 
was founded on the princi- 
ple that all were created 
equal. After celebrating 
Black History month in 

Sec. 200e, et. seq.). 

Mr. Larod is a Seventh- 
day Adventist in good 
standing and a quabfied 
counselor with an MBA 
degree from Andrews 
University and a Ph.D. in 
Management from Yale, 
and is currently practicing 
obstetrics in Chattanooga. 
He said, "I never con- 
sidered being a dean of 
women until one of my 
abortion patients told me 
about the opening and then 
playfully asked, 'You've 
got all the quaUfications— 
why don't you do it?' I 
said, 'You've got to be 

crazy. They'll just laugh.' 
She said, 'You never know 
until you try. Besides, 
you've got a real feel for 
things.' The more I 
thought about it the more 
I realized I was right. I am 
qualified for the job." 

Southern College presi- 
dent Wagner had announc- 
ed, "In keeping with the 
letter and spirit of the law, 
Mr. Larod would have 
been hired as dean of 
women, but this insitution, 
along with all other 
Seventh-day Adventist in- 
stitutions in this country, 
will no longer have dor- 
mitories for men and dor- 
mitories for women. In 
order to cut costs, we will 
be consolidating dorms 
and deans. We also trust 
that this will increase the 
student enrollment here 
nineteen years down the 
road. We have long-range 
goals." The president fur- 
ther stated that "real true 
equality is an illusion — it's 
the biggest lie since 'One 
size fits all.' " 

Water Charges Filed 

In an effort to cut down 
costs, Southern College 
has added a new item to a 
long list of austerity 
measures. The newest at- 
tempt addresses itself to 
the school's outrageous 
water bill, which amounts 
to $1.5 milUon a year. As 
of April, students will find 
a five dollar charge on 
their monthly statements 
for the use of water foun- 
tains on campus. 

In a related announce- 
ment. Earl Evans, director 
of food services, announc- 
ed today that to hold down 
operating costs the school 
will charge 20 cents for 
each glass of ice, twenty- 
five cents if water is added. 
"However, at the CK," 
said Mr. Evans, "empty 
cups will still be free. Cups 
at KR's remain 10 cents." 
These and other cost 
cutting ideas were brought 
to the school board's atten- 
tion by Linda Davis, 
manager at KR's. Mrs. 
Davis claims all these ideas 
came to her while she was 
sleeping. She woke up with 
a start, realizing that they 

were the solution to the 
school's economic pro- 
blems. "I am very proud to 
be able to help the school 
in any way, although I feel 
some disappointment 
because not all my recom- 
mendations were followed. 
The plan called for water 
rationing, replacement of 
landscaped areas with cac- 
tuses, and ID-operated 
water fountains to ensure 
nobody abused their foun- 
tain privileges," said Mrs. 

Kenneth Spears, the 
school's business manager, 
remarked that the water 
bill had been one of the 
main concerns on the 
budget committee's agen- 
da. He was confident that 
the matter had been resolv- 
ed in the best manner 
possible. The only remain- 
ing issue is the high rate of 
water consumption in the 
residence halls. A subcom- 
mittee will be looking into 
the matter of ID-operated 

Student reaction on 
water bill actions isn't yet 
known, since most don't 

know about the moves. Bill 
Bass, one of the best in- 
formed students on cam- 
pus, spoke to the Twang in 
an exclusive interview in 
which he remarked: "I am 
very enthusiastic about this 
development. I had seen 
the profit potential in that 
area and wondered why 
the school had not done 
anything about it." Mr. 
Bass also believes that stu- 
dent reactions will be 
positive because students 
will pay only for what they

55: Surprise Party for Prez 

By Stan Flash 

Southern College suf- 
fered a tremendous loss 
when John Wagner, cur- 
rent president of the col- 
lege, accepted the presiden- 
cy of Union College. 

Reasons for his accep- 
tance of presidency at 
Union rather than 
Southern are not clear, 
although top sources say 
his decision was influenced 
by the multitude of park- 
ing tickets given to him by 
the Campus Security. 

Wagner was loved by 

students as well as faculty 
and to show their apprecia- 
tion for his contribution to 
the school, a surprise par- 
ty, jointly planned by 
students and faculty, was 
held in his honor. 

"I was really surprised 
when 1 walked into what I 
thought was going to be 
another dull board meeting 
and everybody jumped out 
and yelled 'Surprise!'" 
commented Wagner. 

Drinks and snacks were 
supplied by the S.C. 

cafeteria, along with 
various party favors. Par- 
ty games, planned by S.A. 
President Jonathon Wurl, 
with live entertainment, 
further enhanced the get 

The going-away party 
turned out to be the social 
event of the year with just 
about everybody showing 
up. Besides faculty and 
students, others on the in- 
vitation list were George 
Woodruff, A.C. McClure

there is little faculty pat. 
ticipation in school sports 
Intramural director Stevt' 
Jaecks announced last 
Monday that a series of 
games will be started next 
year especially for the 
faculty. These games will 
cater to the faculty's men- 
tal and physical skills. 

For example, one of the 
new games will be 
"thought-putt." Br! 
but brainy history dep; 
ment teachers will h 
copies of "War 
Peace" for distance coj 
petition. Extra points 
be awarded if the 
testants can quote from 
page to which the bo! 
falls open. 

Another example is the 
50-page dash. It's a speed- 
reading contest in whichSO 
pages from a freshman 
'English 101 ' book are 
recited as quickly as possi- 
ble to a room full of tired, 
loud, and cranky College 
Comp. students. Little in- 
terest was shown in die 
category because the otfier 
departments claimed tta 
the Division of Arts 
Letters had an unfair 
vantage in Dr. Wili 

Also to be made an __ 
ficial school-sponsored ac- 
tivity is an event called the 
"Bank Vault," a financial 
branch of the pole vault. In 
this event, financial aid 
workers vault over unpaid 
student account staj

Former Students in 
Motorcycle Accident 

By Brett Hadley 
Last Thursday, March 27, at approx- 
imately 4:30 p.m. on Hickory Valley 
Road, two former S.C. students, JuUe 
Tryon and Russell Sparkman (Rusty), 
were involved in a motorcycle accident, 
according to Chattanooga PoUce. 

Riding on Rusty's motorcycle, they 
started to pass a small pick-up truck, but 
collided with it when the truck turned left 
without signalUng, said Rusty. The im- 
pact of the collision threw both of them 
from the cycle, causing multiple injuries, 
he continued. 

Both students were taken to Erlanger 
Medical Center. 

Rusty broke his foot in three places, 
lacerated his left knee cap, broke the top 

of his thigh in two places, cracked his hip, 
broke his hand, his wrist, his fore-arm, 
his elbow, and has a broken nose and a 
concussion, he said. "I feel kmda 

Rusty said that they were not wearing 
helmets at the time of the accident. 

JuUe was taken to Erlanger with head 
injuries, internal bleeding, and probab e 
brain damage, and is in critical but stable 
condition according to the patient infor- 
mation nurse at Erlanger. This means 
that her vital signs have stabilized and her 
condition has improved since the time of 
her arrival, accordmg to the hospital s 
public relations office. 

S.C. Offers New B.S. in Soccer in 
Food Service Administration General 

Out of Southern College's Home 
Economics Department comes an entire- 
ly new major. SC is the first Adventist in- 
stitution to offer a Bachelor of Science 
degree in Food Service Administration. 

Assistant Professor of Home 
Economics Diane Fletcher, in whose 
mind the idea was bom, states that this 
major is "a good blend of practical and 
theoretical knowledge." 

The program, combined with associate 
course work, includes a seminar, a prac- 
ticum (one summer in an actual work set- 
ting), a minor in business, and two addi- 
tional classes outside of general require- 


student who doesn't like to study," says 
Thelma Cushman, Associate Professor 
and chairman of the Home Economics 
Department. The program uses only the 
present staff, said Cushman. 

"The aim of the new program," says 
Cushman "is to upgrade the food service 
and the image of the Food Service staff 
in this institution." Presently, "there are 
no educational requirements for the Food 
Service staff. Our objective is to increase 
the number of qualified personnel and to 
create (in the staff) a sense of pride in the

Spanish Club Organized 

By Shelly Acevedo 
Friday, February 21, the first meeting 
of the Southern College Spanish Club 
was held at the back of the cafeteria. An 
enthusiastic crowd of almost forty 
students attended the organizational 

Founded with the dual purposes of en- 
couraging Christian brotherhood and 
knowledge about Hispanic culture, the 
club membership is open to any student 
of Southern College. Dues for this 
semester are only one dollar. 

The first of many planned activities 
was the Saturday night showing of the 
movie /I madeui. Future activities include 
Spanish club vespers, games night, more 
video nights, and a picnic. 

The upcoming picnic, April 12, will be 
an all-day Sabbath outing to Harrison 

Bay. An informal Sabbath school and 
church program will precede the 
"Spanish food" picnic. Hikes, discussion 
groups, and a Spanish songfest will be 
part of the program. Members and non- 
members alike are invited. 

The club was organized by Ed Santana, 
who felt there was a need for a club that 
encouraged the growing interest in the 
Spanish language and its culture. Ed is 
now the club's president. 

Other officers include Shelly Acevedo, 
executive vice-president; Robert Pittman, 
treasurer; Maribel Soto, social activities 
director; Alex Franco, public relations; 
Danny Hernandez, pastor; and Isa Coto, 
secretary. For more information or to 
join the club, contact any of the officers. 
We are expecting you. Hasta luego!

By Dave Nottelson 
Hockey season is over and the sports 
scene shifts outside as soccer takes over. 
Since I offered a few observations on 
floor hockey, I thought it only fair to give 
an opinion or two on soccer. 

Actually, I enjoy soccer quite a bit. It 
doesn't give you a stick to beat opponents 
senseless with and, as a matter of fact, 
you're not allowed to use your hands. I 
have only two thorns in my side when it 
comes to soccer, and both deal with the 
goal area. 

First of all, how come the games are 
so low scoring? In basketball the hoop is 
just a little larger than the ball and is ten 
feet off the ground, but scores still range 
in the hundreds. In soccer, however, the 
goal is hundreds of times larger than the 
ball and they even lay it on the ground 
to make it easier, but scores still barely 
reach double digits. 

My second problem with soccer is the 
goalie. This luckless fool stands in the 
middle of an acre-wide goal and lets full- 
grown, horse-legged men crank away at 
him from 20 feet. My own personal ex- 
perience at goalie leads me to doubt the 
sanity of these men. 

When I was at school, the coach ask- 
ed for volunteers to play goalie and my 
hand shot up instantly. I was feeling 
clever because, as everyone knows, the 
goalie does nothing but stand around, 
right? Wrong. The coach lined five balls 
up and, vrith a gleam in his eye, announc- 
ed, "We wHl start with the speed- 
shooting drill." I hopedf yea, even prayed 
he was talking of intravenous drug usage. 
No such luck. Five of the largest humans 
lined up behind the balls and the coach 
instructed me to stop 
them from scoring. I 
stopped the first one 
easily enough since it 
was aimed directly at 
my head. No sweat. 
(A little blood 
maybe, "but no 
sweat.) Desperately 
hanging onto con- 
sciousness, I nimbly 
thwarted the next 
shot with my groin.

Hot Water Up in Flames 


2/SOUT HERN ACCENT/ April 10, 1986 


And Today's Reality Is... 

Now don't think that 1 don't like S.C. or say that I only talk about the negative 
things Why. just a couple of days ago. my fries at the C.K. were hot, golden brown, 
and unsalted— just the way I like them. 

Unt^munately the C.K. is still a lot dirtier than a McDonalds would ever be. To 
re^ehe most items requires that the student have the patience of Job and a m.lknmm 
oT^emwait. Don'?go there if you have a distaste for dirt or .f you have a schedule. 
I know however, of some places where the eatmg is worse. 

The en&e food service system at Andrews University is much '"s agreeable than 
S C -s system The short-order system is so slow (yes, much slower than the C.K.) 
that students say they can watch a person age while waitmg for his order. 

La t yerabout this time a student wrote a letter to the Accen, saying that he had 
been hit by a rock kicked up by a lawn mower that didn't have a guard on it^ As 
th^ mowing season begins this year, the mowers still don't have blade gu^ds know 
that lawn mowers operate more efficiently when they don t have guards, but 1 a^so 
know that it would be easy for a jury to see that a school was hable for an injury 
caused by an ill-equipped mower. 

What about Ughts on campus? The walk between Daniels Hal! and Brock Hall 
is an excellent place for stargazing. There are no lights, so it's also a good place to 

"L^e y^ear comes to a close. I haven't forgotten that no one is perfect. Maintain- 
ing the plant and services that surround us would go a long way towards making 
this valley happy. „ , >, ■ , 

If the S.C. administration wants to stay out of court m our sue- em society, 
they might consider making quality and service "Job No. 1." Its important 
everywhere— lights, lawnmowers, and classrooms.

Jovial Thoughts on Spring 

On March 20, life was reborn. 

Spring has returned and with it come warm breezes, soft rain showers (although 
we have had few yet), and plenty of pretty flowers from the grounds department. 

The heat of the sun is back, too. and a mad rush of blankets and bodies has been 
seen headed in the direction of the courtyards. Just the other day I saw a fair-skinned 
female tanning— although I truly believe it was broiling— her skin a deep red. 

Still, for a lot of us life will not ease up until after April 30, when the semester 
is over. Just picture this: a mere three weeks remains until we get to close the books, 
eat something other than potatoes, and desert this "community" atmosphere. Im- 
agine, too, that it will last for four revitaUzing months. 

What I most appreciate about springtime is that summer immediately follows. And 
this summer I have the rare opportunity to go home. You, most likely, could not 
care less about this fact. But who cares what you think, anyway! I am going home. 

No, it will not be long before the living starts. And that puts me in mighty good 
spirits — about spring and things.

Alumni Opinion 

Dear Editor; 

As an '85 alumnus I have noted with 
interest the various discussions that have 
taken place within the Accent's pages 
during the past year. I would now like to 
make a couple of comments as the year 
draws to a close. 

First of all. I dispute the position taken 
by Janet Conley in the March 20 paper 
that the discussions within the letters to 
the editor section have been counter- 
productive. Expressing one's differing 
views in writing in a public forum is an 
American tradition as deeply ingrained as 
our belief in the freedom from 
unreasonable search and seizure and the 
separation of church and state, and has 
been done since before the Revolution. 
By bringing their viewpoints forward on 
subjects that are hardly trivial, the par- 
ticipants in this public debate have caus- 
ed all who have read them to face the sub- 
jects raised and come to a personal opi- 
nion on them. This is not a counter- 
productive result, for it is only through 
the clash of ideas that understanding is 
achieved. I thank the editor for presen- 
ting such an opportunity to the SC stu- 
dent body. 

Secondly, as one who played a role in 
the budgeting the funds for the publishing 
of the Accent over the past school year, 
1 can say. without qualms, that I feel that 
the money has been well spent and that 

the student body of this school has receiv- 
ed good value for the funds that were ex- 
pended over the last fiscal year. My con- 
gratulations to the staff. 

Sincerely yours,

doing some drill a student used good 
grammar and somehow in my foggy mind 
it sounded wrong so I corrected her in 
wrong grammar.) Habe you ebor in a

MOR music: Wrytzen sings Friday. 

Christine Wyrtzen Sings for 
Vespers Friday 

Though labeled Middle of the Road 
(MOR), Christine Wyrtzen is really a 
mixture of MOR and contemporary, with 
leanings toward the latter. She is a ver- 
satile musician who also writes, arranges 
and sings her own music. But it is her 
honesty and sensitive heart that draws 
people to her music. 

Her latest record, One More Chance, 
is composed of ten carefully selected 
songs, most of which are Wyrtzen 
originals. The focus of the album is on 
our need to look to God and apply His 
answers to the issues we face. 

Wyrtzen's travels have included na- 
tional TV appearances with Jerry Falwell, 
Tim and Beverly LaHaye. Richard 
DeHaan, Charles Stanley, and others.

After the fire department was called by

A large crowd of students gathered in

people to see each other as they really are.

By Danny Kwon 
Less than 48 hours after the false fire 
alarm in Thatcher that evacuated both 
dorms, a real fire was reported in the 
boiler room of Talge Hall. 

On Monday, April 7, at approximate- 
ly 8;45 p.m.. Bob Folkenberg, an R.A. 
on first floor west wing, discovered an 
unusual odor which he described as smell- 
ing "a lot like propane." Immediately, 
he investigated the smell with the aid of 
administrative assistant Zell Ford and 
R.A. John Dysinger. Checking the dif- 
ferent floors, they discovered that the 
source of the smell was coming from the 
boiler room in the basement. Opening the 
door, they discovered flames of about 
three to five feet in height shooting 
sporadically from the bottom of the 
large, rectangular-shaped boiler. Dean 
Christman was notified immediately, 
whereupon he called the fire department 
and evacuated the dorm. 

When the Tri-Community Fire Depart- 
ment arrived, the fire was put out by tur- 
ning off the gas Une, which was describ- 
ed as having a "leak." The overall situa- 
tion was described as "potentially 
dangerous," but because of the quick 
discovery of the fire combined with the 
speedy evacuation of the dorm, a 
dangerous situation was avoided. 

Dean Christman said Uiat he was pleas- 
ed with the speed and precision of the 
evacuation. "This is the best fire drill that 
we've ever had. Seriously, we've never 
had one this good." 

Although the problem with the fire was 
successfully handled, a problem that af- 
fects the Talge residents more on a day- 
to-day basis is that of the disabled boiler. 
Two boilers supply the dorm with hot 
water, and although the boiler on the east 
side of the dorm is operating, the west 
side is completely disabled. Ad- 
ministrative assistant Bill Bass said that 
although the fire may make the boiler 
seem in a hopeless condition, he felt that 
the boiler could be repaired. Dean 
Christman, however, is tired of the boiler 
that has caused problems for the dorm as 
recently as last Sunday, and said frankly 
that "we'll be gettmg a new boiler." 

At best, however, if the boiler is 
repaired, the hot water will be out on west 
wing for at least the rest of the week. But 
if the boiler is replaced, the hot water may 
be out for quite some time. The men on 
west wing will have to make their way 
over to the east showers or satisfy 
themselves with cold showers until the 
boiler is either repaired or replaced.

(College Place, Wash.)— Southern Col- 
lege recently became an affiliate of the 
Walla Walla College Marine Station at 
Rosario Beach in northern Washington 

Located on the picturesque Puget 
Sound, the station is the nucleus of 
marine biology study in Adventist higher 
education. Southern College joins sw 
other North American Adventist colleges 
which are affiliated with the marine 

Affiliation is an agreement among the 
colleges to cooperatively provide educa- 
tion at the marine station. Other af- 
filiated schools include Andrews Univer- 
sity, Canadian Union College, Loma 
Linda University, Southwestern Adven- 
tist CoUege, and Union CoUege. 

Ron Carter, chairman of the WWC 
biology department and director of the 
station, believes this affiliation program 
is a model for future cooperation between 
Adventist coUeges. . 

Carter explains that because of union 
boundaries academic exchange among 
SDA coUeges has been curbed. He feels 
that Rosario is an exception. 

"The Rosario Marine Station program 
is the only undergraduate program where 
multiple coUeges are contributing to an 
educational experience," says Carter. 
'We are cooperating to serve the students 

in the best possible way." 

Thus saying. Carter Usts several 
benefits of the program. 

First, it aUows smaUer schools to have 
accredited marine biology courses. This 
fact bolsters the cooperating coUeges' 
science programs. Students from 
landlocked coUeges are exposed to an 
aspect of biology which wouldn't be 
possible without the affiUation. 

Secondly, says Carter, "Rosario aUows 
biology students to learn and study with 
a rich cross-section of Adventist college 

Another important benefit is that 
scientists ftom across the country are at- 
tracted to the station's modern research 

"Students are able to rub shoulders 
with researchers from places like Oxford 
and Purdue Universities," says Carter. 

FinaUy, Carter states, trying to keep up 
with the increasing sophistication of 
science and the demands it places on 
biology programs warrants an affUiation 
program. Pooling resources is an idea 
now reaUzing its fuU potential at the 
WWC Marine Station. 

"For Seventh-day Adventists to pro- 
vide a state-of-the-art science education 
with spiritual concepts, we have to 
cooperate," Carter concludes.

Senior Art Is Noteworthy Collection 


By Tim Lale , „ „, 

If a contortion of mre and ping-pong baUs or an oval 
stone «ith a line around it and a round indentation on 
one side is the final result of a class in your major, would 
vou want to show everyone? Two senior art students, 
Marggie Harper and Richard Natzke, did just that when 
thev opened their joint senior art exhibition Sunday 
evening, April 6, at 7-.00 p.m. 

Senior shows like this differ from the professional 
shows held recenUy in the gaUery because no theme runs 
through the exhibited works. As Bob Garren Professor 
of Art, explained, "The show has a lot of variety^ It 
shows progress over four years, and it covers all the dil- 
ferent areas of an work." He recommended the show 
as a "good experience" for his students. 

Assignments from the professor to use diverse artistic 
mediums or color combinations furnish the variety ot 
the works. The exhibits include examples of watercolor, 
graphite, printing, drawing ink, acrylic pamt, copper 
plate engraving, and even plastic and wire. Some works 

for instance Harper's acrylic series, display the creative 
combination of adjacent colors and shapes Composi- 
tions like Natzke's wax pencil drawing Me anie 
demonstrate great attention to f'f .-^,- ' ^ '"^tl 
oring and shading. The two students indicate technical 
°kUl with the photographs and prints they show. Both 
of thrm have attempted to harness the utmost creativi- 
tv as they render each medium. 

Exhibition is one of two rewards for the art majors 
the other is financial gain when the works seU. When 
questioned about the method used for pricing, Harper 
said "You take into account the frame, glass, matenals 
and 'time you put into it." She added that her judgment 
of the success of the project, seconded by other opm.ons, 
influences the price. Prices in this exhibition range from 
$20 to $300. A few of the works are not for sale. Some 
pictures I like to keep," Harper said. 

Artists tend to keep favorites, but the choice is dif- 
ficult with such diversity. As the two student artists said 
at the opening, it's a coUection of their best.

A Curious Movie Issue Changes Reels 


By Janet Conley 
If Spring came more than once a year, all the colleges 
and universities in America would close. 

The "Advent of April" seems to have a devastating 
effect on the scholastic attitudes of most people under 
25. Nursing students reek of "Hawaiian Tropic" instead 
of antiseptic. Music majors forget Tchaikovsky in favor 
of "K.C. Kassem's Top Forty," and journalism students 
stop writing and start delving into the shallow delights 
of Harlequin Romances. 

Administrators from schools all over the nation report 
a drop in class attendance as students seek rivers, 
romance, and races rather than reading, writing, and 
'rithmetic. Textbooks become oil-spotted as students 
take learning outdoors and let it compete with those two 
able foes; the radio and members of the opposite sex. 
Surprisingly, grade point averages do not drop 
noticeably. Either studying can be done effectively out- 
doors or school teachers are susceptible to Spring Fever, 
too. "By the time April arrives, my mind is literally 
burned out," comments one student. "So I figure I 
might as well take my body outside and let it bum, too!" 
As the mental ice of scholastic winter melts in the 
social sun, students spend money as fast as waves crash 
on the sand. School bills fall behind as Six Flags, trips 
to Daytona Beach, and shopping for swimsuits and sum- 
mer fads like " Jams"(brightiy patterned unisex shorts) 
take financial priority. 

Don't school administrators get frustrated with emp- 
ty classrooms, coconut-smelling term papers, and over- 
due school bills? "Of course 1 do," says one college 
president. "But not so much with the frivolities of the 
young— only with the fact that I'm not young enough 
to join them!" 




By Janet Conley 
Twenty or thirty years ago, students at Adventist col- 
leges would have been expelled for attending the theater. 
Today, movie attendance hardly even seems an issue in 
light of cun-ent ti-ends in the areas of television and video 
that allow us to bring these same movies home. Southern 
College even shows some of the more benign PG movies, 
such as Karate Kid and The Natural, at its social 

The Southern College student handbook says "The 
college does not condone attendance at motion picture 
theaters or the viewing of 'R' or 'X' rated films 
anyplace." This statement appears to be a rule of con- 
duct, but actually the field of choice is still wide open. 
Just because a fiUn is rated PG does not mean it fits the 
school's standards. In a few instances, some R-rated 
movies are more acceptable than PG movies. And how 
many students will be caught going to the movies 
anyway? Some people go to the movies; some don't. It 
is not likely that a rule is going to change anyone's mind. 
Following are the opinions of four SC students on the 
subject of movie attendance. While they certainly do not 
represent a statistically valid cross-section of the popula- 
tion as exemplified in the Gallup poles, they were chosen 
randomly and do represent certain significant factions 
of opinion. 

"I go to the movies for entertainment — when I have 
nothing better to do. I don 't see anything really wrong 
with it. It is a cop-out to say TV is just as bad as the 
movies. I don 't see a major difference between R and 
PG movies. I've heard that movie companies rate movies 
just to get a wider audience. When I choose a movie, 
I go by the opinions of people who have already seen 
It. I have never not chosen to go to a movie for moral 
reasons, but I do judge the movies I see by the reports 
I hear of them. I don 't pay attention to all the swear 
words or love scenes, but when I watch the same movie 
with my parents, all of a sudden I hear all the things 
I overlooked before. " 

—Nancy Hersch, junior nursing major 

"To me the theater is not the issue. It is what we are 

subjecting ourselves to. I don 't go to movies because if 

I go to one movie that I think is good, I may eventually 

go to other movies that are not as good. I'll watch good 

things on video, but what I see is still the issue. I could 

sin just as easily watching videos as in the theater. " 

—Mike Fulbright, sophomore theology major 

"Saying it is wrong to go to the movies is a Pharisaical 

rule. The atmosphere isn 't bad— you can 't smoke, you 

can't drink— I guess there's popcorn on the floor.. .It 

is wrong to go to certain movies, but you can see the 


same garbage on a VCR. I judge movies right or wri 
by whether or not I can get away with seeing them.i 
course, I wouldn't go to a really bad movie, an 'Xi 
anything. " j 

Male freshman, name withheld by reqi| 
"/ used to go to the movies, but I don 't go anym6 
It does nothing to enhance my Christian life. Nothtt 
on the screen depicts anything of high moral standari 
I stopped going because I was trying to get my /ft 
together and movies weren 't helping. I don't see any dg 
ference between movies and VCRs—you still have the 
same cursing and sexual contexts. " 
Paulette Higgins, freshman pre-physical therapy major 
As these opinions have shown, one can argue either 
way on the subject of movie attendance. The purpose 
of this article is not to convince anyone to go or not to 
go to the movies— it is merely a vehicle of decisioq. 
Deciding is far more important than actual movie at- 
tendance or abstinence. Perhaps these opinions will help 
facilitate a decision or establish some reasons for action. 
Students should know why they do or do not go to t^r 
movies and have reasons to support their views. 

All decisions are based on right and wrong. Like be; 
ty, right and wrong are sometimes in the eye of I 
beholder. In this instance, the decision turns on o| 
point: Who is the beholder?

caught and killed by a fur hunter, Freddy couldn't help 
but think that the culprit in this was Gruff, and so he 
made some remarks about how nice Gruff 's cubs would 
look as a baby bear rug in his den. 

Gruff didn't take such comments too kindly, as you 
might imagine, and so he said some things that he pro- 
bably would not have said if he had not been so angry 
Gruff was so angry, in fact, that he walked by Freddy's 
den and tore a hole in the side of it. He said he was just 
searching for some food and didn't know that he was 
digging into Freddy's den, but everyone else knew better. 

Freddy was so angry about the new unplanned win- 
dow in his den that he tried to think of a way to get even 
and eventually hit on an idea. He had some contacts with 
Buckey Beaver and got him to drop a tree on Gruff's 
den when he wasn't at home. It smashed in the roof and 
caused extensive damage. Fortunately, no one was hurt. 

Gruff challenged Freddy to a fight, but Freddy knew 
better than to fight with Gruff. Gruff sat up late at night 
thinking about how he could get even, and he finally 
struck on a plan. He found some matches, and late one 
night when Freddy was out on the prowl, he started a 
fire in Freddy's den. Unfortunately, he was not able to 
control the fire, and once it had burned up Freddy's den 
it spread to some other trees.

ment was caUed out to fight the blaze, but since some 
were on Freddy's side and some were on Gruff's sMe 
they were divided as to whether to fight the fire. The^ 
delay allowed the fire to get totally out of hand, and 
soon all that could be done was to evacuate the forest 

History will probably record that Fenton Forest was 
destroyed by a physical fire, but really it was destroyed 
by the fire that burned in the hearts of Freddy the Fox 
and Gruff the Bear long before its physical destruction

Time Out 
Hurrah for National 

,^3 By Dave Noltelson 

""^ There has been a bit of a discussion go- 
ing on inside the hallowed offices of the 
Southern Accent. Several of the writers 
on the staff would like to see major na- 
tional sporting events covered in the 
Accent, but others do not. 

There are good reasons, however, why 
the/4cc«nf should cover events (such as 
the World Series, Super Bowl, etc.). Their 
first reason is that students are interested 
and don't always have time to read the 
daily paper. As Don Russell commented, 
"I have too much homework to do to sit 
down and read the daily paper, but 1 
always read the Accent." 

The next point is that this is a school 
newspaper. Wrong again. The key word 
in that sentence is newspaper (in other 
words, a paper full of news). If the 
Accent can cover news about other col- 
leges' sports or "Far Side" cartoons (i.e., 
March 20 edition), we can certainly cover 

Sports Coverage 

major world sports. 

The point is that sometimes there is not 
campus sports news to cover. Several of 
the sports seasons on campus are rather 
dry, and instead of having a floor hockey 
box scores and a half-page add for the 
C.K., a national sports story would be a 
refreshing change. 

Lastly, covering campus sports can 
sometimes be likened to ice hockey in 
Ecuador; there isn't much of it. During 
seasons in which no special tournaments 
are being held the sports scene can 
become, shall we say, less than exciting. 
Coverage of a world sporting event could 
take the place of those half-page C.K. 
adds and would be a refreshing change 
for the sports page. 

True, school sports come first, but 
covermg national sports would only help 
our paper, not hinder it.

Since printing the article on the sofl- 
ball tournament, I have been asked 
several questions and have heard dit- 
ferent comments regarding the organiza- 
tion of the tournament. I would likelo 
take a moment so that everyone has a 
clear understanding of the tournamenl. 

"How many games will we play?" The 
tournament runs from April 21 through 
April 24, and the number of games 
team plays depends on how many teams 
sign up. Teams will play each other al 
least once. 

Who can have a team? Anyone who 
wishes to have a team can. There are only 
two requirements: you must be currenlly 
attending classes here and the teams musl 
have five guys and five girls. 

All of the good players are 
picked, so who do I get to play? Obvious- 
ly some teams will have more talent than 
others, but for this tournament you 
supposed to pick friends. The games ate 
designed for social interaction not com- 
petition, and no awards wiU be given out 
for "winning" the tournament. 

A number of people have expressed m- 
terest in these games, and several teams 
have aheady been turned in. If youwni 
to enter the tournament, have a teanj 
turned in to the gym by Monday, Apt" 
14. If you have any questions, call Stev«

I'm sorry, but I don't know you.' 

Three new members were inducted in- 
to the Southern College chapter of Phi 
Alpha Theta, the national history honor 
society, Wednesday evening, April 2. 
Nancy Foster, Jerry Kiser, and Ted 
Theus, all junior history majors, were in- 
itiated (a fourth new member, Paul 
Ware, was unable to attend). Phi Alpha 
Theta is the largest of the national honor 
societies, helping to promote high stan- 

dards in the study of history since 1921 
through its journal, national and regional 
meetings, and various scholarships and 
awards. Membership is not restricted to 
history majors. One simply needs to have 
completed 12 hours of history with just 
better than a "B" average. Inquiries 
about joining may be directed to Dr. 
McArthur in the history department.
