They're Back And Mixing It Up 

By Scott Begley 

The Southem College Student 
Association christened a new year of 
activities Saturday night with its 
"Welcome Aboard Pany." With Jodi 
Lairabee al the helm, and a wondetfiil 
crew to back her up, the SC Cruise 
Line's maiden voyage got under way 
beneath a shower of stars, lots of bal- 
loons and confetti.

greeted by President Donald Sahly and

ticeably from the line was Rear Admi- 
ral Ron "Blood-n-Cnitches" Qualley. 
Dean Qualley was injured during a 
student- faculty soft ball game the previ- 
ous Monday. 

Just beyond the receiving line, 
passengers could treat themselves to a 
fabulous fresh fruit buffet of water-

as pina colada punch.

Student Workers 
Left Without 
Pocket Money 

By Janet L. Conley 

Most students working on cam 
won't receive any cash this yea 
ause of a decision by finance ad 
istrators to apply all earnings t< 

summer that students who owe 
money will no longer be able to with- 
draw 25 percent of their monthly 

An increase of nearly 5700,000 
in unpaid student accounts last year 
prompted the decision. According to 
Assistant Vice President for Finance 
Helen Durichek the change was not a 
new policy but rather a re-enforce- 
ment of a previous policy. 

"It's not really a change as far as 
the basic policy is concerned. The in- 
tent of the whole thing is not to keep 
students from getting money from 
their accounts," Mrs. Durichek said, 
adding that students with a credit bal- 
ance may still withdraw money from 

According to Mrs. Durichek, the 
decision to stop the practice of sm-

by Director of Student Finance Laurel

Editorial - 

Welcome Back; 
Check Us Out! 

Hello, and welcome back lo Southern College! Yes, it's 
time (o Stan studying again even though most of us would 
rather be on the beach baking our bodies in the hoi sun. My 
summer vacation was cut about three weeks short because I 
have been busy planning this year's Souihem Accent. 

This year as editor of die Southern Accent I have rede- 
signed the paper to give it more appeal lo the students. The 
Accent staff for this year has been working hard on the fiist 
issue and I'm e:(ciled about their backgrounds and abilities. 
AssisIanteditorJanelConley worked on adailynewspaperin 
Augusta Georgia this summer. Sana and Gene Krishingner, 
the news editor, are both joumaiism majors. Scott Bcgley, 
the Accents feature editor is an English major. Chuck 
Huenergardl, my brother, is the photography editor. He has 
had some experience working on his senior annual. Brad 
Durby is really excited about the sports page and has some 
good ideas for the section. This year's staff is definitely 
talented and 1 feel Ihey will help me put out a great newspa- 
per. I think you will fmd each issue this year full of relevant 
news stories and exciting feature articles. The Southern 
Accent is the paper for the students, about the students. 
Lei's take a brief look at the Accent and note some changes. 
The front page has a more modem masthead and will carry 
the big stories each week along with the traditional cover 
photo. Inside the paper you will find more anention given to 
layout. You will also notice some new features. For 
instance, the column "News Briefs' will infomi you of what's 
been happening without having to read an entire article. A 
calender of events will also be added into this year's paper so 
you can plan your weeks in advance. Another new feature is 
'Letters Home' which will keep you in touch with your 
classmates who are serving in the mission field. Tina Frist, 
whospent lasisemesler in the Marshall Islands, kicks off this 
feature for us today. 

The entire paper has had a major facelift. I hope you feel 
this year's paper is outstanding. Southern College deserves 
apaper that iican be proud of, one that you will enjoy reading 
andshowing toyour friends. Laslyearwehad to stop printing 
because we ran out of money; this year 1 am watching the 
budget and we will print the full 24 issues this school year. 
Have a great year, and read the Accent.

Reniming to Southern Col-

friends and my country again. 
But after such an incredible expe- 
rience, I fuid it hard to share the 
special moments of my trip widi

Of course, the standard re-

CARE-An Acronym For Spiritual Concerns 

By Kevin Gepford 

5 say that we have [o 
hear something 14 (imes before we 
remember it. Can you think of how 
many times you have heard the word 
CARE since coming to Southern Col- 
lege? If you are returning, you may have 
an idea ofwhat it means. Ifyouareanew 
student here, the word probably just 
means what you do to your hair or how 
you feel toward your girlfriend or boy- 

The word CARE is an acronym 
that stands for Collegiate Adventists 
Reaching Everyone. It means Campus 
Ministries, plus, and it represents an 
idea. It is more than Sabbath afiemoon 
programs and Weeks of Prayer. It is 
more than health emphasis and Colle- 
giate Missions. CARE describes your 
intangible spiritual goals, and it implies 
a connection with friends who want to 
lum you on to a satisfying Christian 
experience. !t is involvement with other 
peoples' lives. 

How is the word CARE 
practice at Southern College? Among 
many other activities. CARE sponsors

and Friday nightafterglowsof music and

How well will I adapt to adversity?

said. "We're living in a very lethargic, laid-back era.

something, it's evidence of a much broader support." 

This support, however, would be more effective if it 
were shown actively, not through inert acceptance.

Southern's Beautification Projects-Alcove & Pond 

By Gene Krishingner 

Two beautification projects de- 
signed to enhance the landscape of 
Southern College's campus arc under

llic Alcove, located m front of 
Daniels Hall, will be a place where 
students can congregate, study, eat or 
relax, according to Diaries Lacey, 
grounds department director. 

Lacey. who designed the proj- 
ect, said the Alcove will feature a 
small maiunade stream in front of 
Daniels Hall, a waterfall in front of 
Lynn Wood Hal!, and a water lily 
pond, complete with goldfish, in front 
of the Garden of Prayer parking lot. 

The Alcove, meaning 'a secluded 
place,' is part of the $120,000 Prome- 
nade walkway donated by the Conmiit- 

tee of 100, according to Fmancial Vice 
I^esident Ken Spears. 

According to Lacey, the idea for 
the Alcove/ftomenade has been in the 
planning stages for 1 1 years. 

Lacey, who has been with the 
grounds department for 18 years, said 
his "paycheck" for all the extra work is

Ott Finishes Book On A Systematic Analysis Of E.G. White On Christ 

By Werner StevenhaeEn 
Perfect in Chrisi - the meditation 
of Ouisi in the writings of Ellen G, 
While, is the title of Dr. Helmut Oit's 
new book, which just arrived at the 
Collcgedale Advenlisi Book Center for 
retail sale this week. 

Dr. Ott, ch^rman of the Modem 
Languages dcparmicnl at Southern 
College, says his book is a systematic 
analysis of what Mrs. White wrote 
about the intercession of Chrisi in the 
heavenly sanctuary. "There is no one 
book wiiiicn by Mrs. White or a quali- 
fied theologian cm ihc subject," he 
said. "In my book I draw references 
from quotes in Mrs. White's writings, 
and then compare and conTirm them 
with Scripture." 

Dr. Ou develops the theme of his 
book from a quote in The Great Cnn- 
limmx.: "The intercession of (3irist in 
man's behalf in the sanctuary above is 
as essential to Ihe plan of salvation as 
was his death upon the cross." He fo- 

whciher people themselves musi be 
perfect before Christ's second coming. 
He said, "Many don't have the assur- 
ance of salvation because tht^ base 
salvation on their own achievements. 
Whai we must realize is that in this life 
we're never perfect in ourselves, but 
only through the merits of Chrisi im- 
puted to us by faith." He added that he 
hopes his book will provide the reader 
with a "sound basis for assurance of 
salvation in Chris L" 

The manuscript was reviewed by 
three professionals and two church lay- 
members in the Chaiianooga area be- 
fore being sent to print. Dr. Ben 
McArthur, chairman of the history de- 
partment at, who read the manuscript, 
said the book is the "best refutation of 
the idea that Ellen White leaches per- 
Helrma Ou. Souifurn's Spanish and fcctionism." Virginia Combs, a mem- 
German professor fi/ushes his book. ^ of ihe McDonald Seventh-day Ad- 

ventisi church, also read the

College Faculty, Staff Given Incentive For Fitness 

By Brad Durby 

If you think you are noticing a 
stir on campus, there's a good reason 
for it The facul^ and staff of South- 
em College arc beginning to indulge in 
the SPICES of life and I'm not talking 
salt and pepper. 

SPICES stands for Spiritual, 
Physical. Intellectual, Career, Emo- 
tional, and Social. Most of these areas 
have been held high on the priority 
list, but special attention is being given 
to maybe the most overlooked area, 


Garver Heads Up Health Progratn 

cial incentive to become a more physi- 
cally fit team. Administration feels 
thai by investing a few thousand dol- 
lars in their faculty and staff, in die 
long run, the school could potentially 
save $100,000. This could be accom- 
plished primarily by having few^ 
people on high risk insurance policies, 
fewer sick days and fewer major sur- 
geries, all being very costly to the 

Phil Garver. originator of 

SPICES and the "Human Machine" 
concept says, 'It's important to keep 
our bodies tuned up just like a car." 
He says, "Poorly tuned machinery is 
ineffective and wears out sooner." 
Carver's goal is to get the staff started 
on this program, and eventually the 
only incentive they will need will be 
feeling better physically and mentally. 
Garver thinlts that in time, 30 minutes 
3 times a week won't satisfy people, 
and they'll exercise longer. It will be 

more of a lifestyle. 

The program is available to 
nearly 250 people, associated with SC. 
If you think you are eligible to receive 
the incentive, contact Phil Garver at 
the PE Center. 

Garver says he has come to the 
conclusion that being a "fitness mo- 
ron" is just as bad as being a menial or 
spiritual moron, especially when we 
have the potential of being a 'Titness 
genius." Isn't it time you start enjoy- 
ing those SPICES of life?

Accent On Sports 

Jas Team Leads 
Fast Pitch Race 


s ihan five. 

In an area where fast pitch soft- 
ball is struggling for survival, the 
Southern College league is making it 
clear that fast pitch is alive and well 

Being Ihe most challenging soft- 
ball league on campus, one might be 
concerned about Ihe success factor. 
Not to worry, doubling fans! TTie 
league is showing tremendous balance 
with the majority of the games being 
decided by one or l\ 
per game average of 
(High for fast pitch!) 

In the midst of this tight race, the 
brightest light would have to be the 
team skippered by Ralph Jas. They are 
sporting a one- game lead and an unde- 
feated season as they approach the 
halfway mark. Eleven players from 
this team have scored at 
and eight have scored two or more. 
With figures like thai, pitcher Ted 
Evans has only had to keep his oppo- 
nents averaging less than eleven nms 
per game. That's a luxury any pitcher 
would love to have. 

Maybe the only question mark on 

Becky Shafer laUs a hefty

his sUong throwing aim and his good 
slick. But unless their opponents start 
denying them scoring opportunities, 
Jas will be hard to catch. 

Early Start Set 
For Triathalon 

The annual Southern College 
triathalon is scheduled to start at 
6:00 a.m. on September 20. 

The triathalon consists of a half 
mile swim at Cohutu springs 
camp, followed by a 29 mile bi- 
cycle ride back to SC and finally 
ending with a 6.2 mile run (aclu- 
e participants walk 



Late Rally Boosts Durby Team, 6 - 5 

Entering Ihe bottom of the seventh inning, Machado 
led Durby 5-2, thanks to a sixth inning where Machado 
roughed pitcher Brad Durby up for four runs. But in die 
bottom of the seventh, Durby's team fought back for two 
runs and had runners on second and third. Victor Bern- 
men hit a game-winning single to right field. The final 
score was Durby, 6. Machado, 5. 

Valenzuela Club Stays Undefeated 

Botlomly and Leavilt scored in the bottom half of 
the sixth to put Valenzuela ahead of Russell 14-13. 
Russell couldn't answer in the seventh as d]cy went down, 
1-2-3, preserving Valenzuela's unblemished record at 3-0. 

Three Teams Knotted In WSL Race 

Bev Keys shot into the top five standings of the 
WSL while leading the Boyd team to a 25-19 victory over 
J.D. Thursday. Keys scored five times including a homer 
in the fourth. The victory put the league in a three-way 
deadlock at 1-1.

Better CK Hours 
Worth Our Pennies 

TTic Campus Kiuticn closing at an earlier Umc 
this year, ( 2 p.m- as compared to 7 p.m. last year), has ai- 
Foused a touch of dJssatisraclion amoung students. 

The main problem seems to be inconvenience. 

With the hours so compact now, there is a much 
larger crowd in the CK. So. even if a student has an hour 
between classes at one point, by the time he or she orders, 
waits, eats, and walks back to Brock Hall (or whcre-evcr 
the classes arc), an hour has long passed by. 

The CK has the reputation of being a hang-ouL It 
is an important pan of the social life on campus. We lose 
that if it closes at 2 p.m. 

Sure, KR's Place is open and so is the cafeleria. 
but KR's and the cafeteria don't have the selection the CK 
has. The lunch room has only two or three entrees al each 
meal. KR's Place is limited too wilh only sandwiches, 
chips, croissants, and bagels to offer. 

Also, it's more convenicni for ball players lo grab 
some food Just before or after a game, 

iLs location next lo the Campus Shop, Post OfHcc, 
VM, and laundry make it convenient for siudcnis to drop 
in while taking care of business after cla-sscs. 

With our options limrli I, lines arc longer at the 
cafeteria during the supper hour and KR's is overloaded. 

As reported in last week's Accent, the average 
price of an enircc would have to increase by .02 cenLs. We 
feel it is worth it to add a few extra pcimies to a masler- 
burger if it means less inconvenience. 

Loitk at it this way... If a student ale an average of 
six meals a weeck al the CK, il would only increase his or 
her food bill by .48 cents per monlli. No big deal, right? 

Enough about how this move is affecting us, let's 
try 10 do something about it. Renou KorfPs suggestion 
about gelling a management or an accouniing major lo run 
the place in the evenings seems like a very good solution. 
Plus, Il would provide practical experience for diesc siu- 

This issue seems lo be a lough one, affecting a loi 
of people in a lol of ways. If Earl Evans say.s il was "cco- 
nomicaliy safe " lo shorten the hours, then we can accept 
ihai and wc appreciate his conccm very much. Bui why not 
ask the siudcnLs their opinion before making such a deci- 
sion. Aficr all. ihc CK and die college cxis[ for the slu- 
dcnls. don'i ilicy'.'

Ad Brings 6,000 Inquiries About Southern

This is the second year SC has

these Tour concerts spread over a two- 
week stay, the band will have plenty of 

lime for sight seeing. London. Paris. 
Geneva. Innsbruck. Salzburg, and Hei- 
delberg arc their planned stops with 

The only bad thing about the tour 
is that it costs money. The cost per 
student is pnajcctcd at S1.500, yet the 
students will only have to pay half of 
that figure with the remainder being 
paid ihrough band fund-raisers. The 
first of these fund-raisers is the jog-a- 
thon on October 25. It will be followed 
by car washes, a spaghetti supper, do- 
nui sales in the dorms, and fruitcake 
sales at Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

Also planned is an advertisement 

The band is also soliciting dona- 
tions from parents, friends and 
churches where they or the smaller 
brass groups perform. Local churches 
will be listed on the tour program ac- 
cording to how much they gave. The 
band has already received a gift of 
SIO,000 from McKee Baking Com-

Students Enjoy Wet Escape At White Water 

A small group ofSouthcm 
students withdrew from the everyday 
life of college and ventured lo While 
Water amusement park in Atl. 
past Sunday.

, in front of 
. Sunday. Ap- 

While traveling down 1-75 
toward their destination, the two 
women and four men that were in one 
vehicle started to acquaint themselves 
with each other (there was nothing else 
to do). Jokes and stories were told 
which made the ride go by quickly. 

After traveling for approximately 
two hours, they arrived. Immediately 
they changed into their bathing suits 
and were ready for action. 

At first they tried their hands at 
trying to cross the activity pool 
without getting wet. Here they had to 
hold on to two parallel ropes sus- 
pended above the pool and Jump 
tl Styrofoam floating 


to the bottom of the pool. 

Alter successfully (cough-cough) 
crossing the water the next attraction 
was a series of body slides. The fun of 
these slides is that they arc rather short 
but an incredible amount of speed can 
be obtained and they require no mats. 
It's only you and your body that go 

Next, the group decided to ride 
While Water Rapids. This is a tube 
ride with a series of wild rapids that 
really bounce you around. And if you 
go down facing toward the front, you 
might be able to sec them coming. 

AXIcr getting tossed around in the 
rapids, they decided to challenge the 
incredible Dragon's Tail Falls. This 
huge water slide was complete with a 
warning sign for those who arc "not 
physically fit" to take caution. That 

It was a bit embarrassing, but in 
order to exit the pool at the end of the 
slide, they had to first get their bathing 

Heintein, Danny Alberlson, 

Upon recovery from Dragon's 
Tail Falls, the next rides to conquer 
were the Gulf Coast Streamer and the 
Bermuda Triangle. These are tube 
rides in which a person can teach 
exhilarating speeds. The Bermuda 
Triangle was particularly exciting 
because of the long, winding tunnel 
with tiny lights illuminating the way 
that added an extra thrill to the ride. 

By this time, the group was 
beginning to tire. The decision was 
made to relax for a while, and where 
else to relax than the lazy Little Hooch 
River? All they had to do was to lay 
back and enjoy the ride. This river 
comes complete with its own current 
to carry you along. 

A good meal made Die rest of the 
day a bit easier to handle and gave 
energy to tackle the rides once again 
plus they tried to have a little fun at 
Little Squirts Island. But according to 
the rales, they were a few feet too tall. 
so they had to settle for a game of 

One student commented. "It was 
definitely the most fun I've had since 
reluming to SC." 

Renou Korff, SA president and 
one of the students who went to White

who signed up to go would have come 
along. Despite potenual rain and an

that led him from his home across the 
Atlantic to Southern College.

studies in religion. 

While attending Newbold, Morris 
sang in a Christian folk group and 
wrote a song for a youth retreat al the 
request of a friend. After deciding that 
he needed a female voice to help with 
the singing, Morris contacted a young 
woman, Bodil Lyim Chen, who was 
visiting Newbold, and asked her to 
sing with him.

Reverse Opinions On SC's Dating Tradition 

Idea Makes 
Good Sense 

Although its conception might 
have come from women's rights lead- 
ers like Gloria Steinem and Betty

zine and The Feminine Mystique," 
the origins of Reverse Weekend are 

After all, in an age when 
paigning by Equal Rights 
supponers has been replaced by men 
crying "reverse discrimination," this 
weekend could be Collcgedale's con- 
tribution to a true equality of the sexes. 

Fortunately, we don't need to 
picket Wri^t Hall or refuse to shave 
our legs to get a "socially acceptable"

the opportunity to riffle through the

nally dial HIS number - hang up - dial

roommate saying, "I'm sorry, he's not

Even after the euphoria of accep- 
tance, one is still faced with finding 
something interesting to do in Col-

cially if CUfTs Diner is closed for often, would it? 

Plarming a reverse weekend date 
can really illustrate what the guys go 
through every weekend: mass tension 

This type of equality can be 
pricey, but it also has the payoff of let- 
ting women choose who they want to 
go out with while letting the guys sit 
back and see how the other half lives

Look at it this way - most of the 
men would just ]ss£. for any one of the 
women to ask them out, but they real- 
ize that most girls are not going to. 

Equal rights and role switching 
hasn't quite reached the dating situ- 
ation at SC ycL And that's understand- 
able because the man has always been 
the one to "break the ice" and make 
the phone call. It just seems naniral^-for 
the man to take the first step. 

But, let's go back in ume a. fi;w 
years . . . back to the Garden of Eden. 
As we alt know, tiieie was Adam and 
Eve. Now, there was no dating because 
Eve was provided for Adam by God. 
Bui what about the incident at the 
"tree." Remember when Eve asked 
Adam to dinner, don't you? Not tieces-

Campus Apathy 
Kills Our Voice 

We. the siudenis of Southern College, are guilty of 
being an Jmpcdimeni to democracy. All of us are quick lo 
criticize the programs and actions of the administration and 
Student Association, but we usually don't care to do any- 
thing about it ourselves. 

Many of us don't even know who our student senator 
was last year and won't know this year if the senator 
doesn't Idl us personally. It seems that apathy has over- 
come us and we don't care enough to do anything about it. 

Of course, many say that it's no use trying. Others 
would miliiantly attack the administration and iLs policies 
in an attempt lo force their convictions into prominence. 

However, these two methods, apathy and attack, are 
ultimately self-destructive, we have a belter ahemative: the 
elected student government. TTirough our senators and offi- 
cers, we can have a voice in the operation of this school. 
By operation within the established ruling body and its 
parameters, we can bring about changes for the better; we 
can do something. 

Yet the one thing that this system requires is commit- 
ment. We have to vole for the representative of our choice, 
know what decisions that representative is making, and ex- 
press our opinions and thoughts to that representative in or- 
der to inform them of their constituents" feelings- Only by 
actively pursuing our commitment to our student govern- 
ment will we, the students, ever be considered participants 
in the administration of our college. 

What's Proper? 

"Shorts are not to be worn about the campus or in the 
classroom buildings, the library, cafeteria, student center, 
or Wright Hall, " according to the student handbook. 

Many students have no problem with parts of this 
regulation. It's not being able to wear shorts in the cafeteria 

We as students should be able to wear modest shorts 
in the cafeteria during meals with the exception of Friday 
nights and Sabbaths. College students should be able to 
decide what shorts are appropriate for cafeteria wear. 

The students should help the Student Accociation 
take action and attempt lo change this polii

Dear Editor, 

I would I'ke to compli- 
ment the library. If you have 
been there lately, you may have 
noticed a more organized and 
complete reference room. Also 
the new microfiche and com- 
puter catalogues have already 
made research an easier task for 

Probably the library's most 
popular improvement is their 
being open for an extra hour 
during the weekdays. 

The library manage- 
ment has done an outstand- 
ing job of improving and 
updating their facilities. 

The library deserves two 
hurrays, but not three. Sundays 
are prime time to students who 
have research projects; it is the 
day they have the most time to 
work on them. However, the li- 
brary does not open until 2 pm 

If you feel this is a prob- 
lem for you, go to the front 
doors of the library where you 
can sign your name to a sheet 
appealing for the library to open 
earlier. Let me challenge you 
not to act like a Laodicean Ad- 
veniist youth. Instead, sign your 
name; only by a joint effort can 
we start making some positive 
changes in our college.

Provocative but not radical is Ihe

"It will provoke thought and per- 
haps it may provoke certain readers," 
Dr. Donald Sahly, Southern College 
president said.

magazine's board of trustees, "Advent- 
is! Perspectives" will present the theo- 
logical views of the religion depart-

"[Adventist Perspectives is] a 
statement of where the college sees it- 
self theologically," Dr. Gordon Hyde, 
director-editor of the Ellen G. White 
Memorial Chair Publications office 
said. "We don't want to sound too pro- 
vocative or too line-snapping."

East Asia Head Reports China l\/liracles

H. Carl Cunie esiimales that 40 to 50 
thousand people there keep the Sab- 
bath and believe the Advent message. 

According to Currie, a total of 
350 people were baptized in two large 
services in China this monlh. 

He spoke of one church group in 
central China where between 500 and 
700 believers meet each Saturday. He 
also said that this year a whole congre- 
gation of non-Sabbath keeping Chris-

When speaking about miracles,

aminaiion. He was shocked to find that 
she had. in fact, been healed. 

Shortly after thai, a friend of hers 
became quite sick. When visiting her 
friend, the woman told of the miracle 
she had just experienced and said that 
if God could heal one person, He could 
heal another. 

Then they prayed and once again. 
according to Currie. God worited a 
miracle of healing. 

"Through these miracles people 
are realizing that God is real," he said. 
"Communism has been telling Uiem 
that prayers are just to fool the 

When asked what difference in 
commitment he sees between the 
church members here and those in 
China, Currie said that the Chinese 
"know what their religion is all about 
because they've been tested and 
they've gone through the fire." 

Currie added. They've demon- 
strated that their religion means more 
to them than freedom or life. Many

He said it is "the call of the Lord" 
that has kept him in missions for this 
many years. "If one doesn't feel that 
he is called, he shouldn't be there." 
Currie said. 

Curric is now living in Hong 
Kong and woiking with a team of 
more than 30 people to prepare the 
Chinese radio programs for Adventist 
World Radio-Asia. 

These programs are broadcast 
throughout the Orient to reach anyone 
who speaks Chinese, Currie works 
with the church to help and encourage 
the believers in mainland China in 
many ways, but because of the com- 
munist government's attitude toward 
religion, he said that work must be 
kept very low-key. 

From here he will go to the An- 
nual Council of Seventh-day Adventist 
world leaders, held October 6 through

that, he will return to Hong Kong to

Recap Of Women's Softball 

A bn"ef recap of the women's softball season shows 
two different streaits taking place. 

While the first two weeks belonged to J.D„ who went 3-

snapped back from a 1-2 record to take three straight victories 
and win the league by a whopping half game. 

During this two week period, Boyd faced J.D. twice and 
blew them away both times. Along with Boyd, Rogers and

WSMC: Campus Secret, City Success 

By Gene Krishingner

hears "Southern College," what 
would he say? If you ask the same 
question of civic and community lead- 
ers in the Chattanooga area, what 
would they say? 


of Southern's 
lOO.OOO-watt classical radio station, 
most would say WSMC. 

Doug Walter, who at 28 has 
worked his way up to station manager, 
and Gerald Peel, who at 27 is develop- 
ment director, cite two recent surveys 

They both feel that WSMC-FM 
90.5 is an outreach tool, not necessar- 
ily to the Collegedale area, but to the 
greater Chattanooga area. 

A survey of 100 community lead- 
ers in the greater Chattanooga area re- 
vealed that 85 percent of the business 
community, and 98 percent of the pri- 
vate community feel WSMC enhances 
the image of Southem College, Fifteen 
percent of the business community had 
no opinion and 2 percent of the private 
sector felt WSMC detracted from the 
image of Southem College. 

Some of the positive comments 
people offered in the survey were: 

WSMC helps Southern's image 
as an inlelleciual center, as well as 
being a religious center. 

A community service that is 
badly needed in Chattanooga; you

The s 


venust audience and Peel and Walter 
agree that one of the best ways lo 
reach them is through classical music. 

"If we look at it from an evangel- 
istic standpoint, the average person 
who seeks gospel music on the radio 
already has some church tendencies," 
Peel said. "Then playing gospel music 
isn't necessarily evangelistic." 

"For example." Walter said, "if 
someone needs food and clothes, you 
don't send him lo George Vandemann, 
you send him to the welfare center."

fear, happiness and joy.

music and life enriching programs,"

Walter. "We don't blame these people 
for missing what they used to hear. It

with the rest of the program."

and "uplifting In the purest sense."

from Southern College - a subsidy

who would gel the quick lead in the league standings. 

The first half was a defensive snuggle as eight of the 
fourteen total points of the first half were set up by the de-

Academic Reputations 
At Risk In Coliege Bowl 

By Scott McClura 

How do many of the intellectu- 
ally inclined students on our campus 
release their competitive drive? For 
those who either don't have the time of 
the talent for athletics or just enjoy an 
additional challenge, the answer is 
SC's venion of Trivial Pursuit - Col- 
lege Bowl. 

Indeed there is no more electric 
environment than the back of the cafe- 
teria at College Bowl time, when the 
sounds of buzzers as well as aniculaie 
faculty moderators and student partici- 
pants fdl the air. 

By pitting the best students in 
various academic disciplines against 
each other this contest forces smdents 
to put dieir academic reputations on 

the line all for the sake of having thier 
names inscribed on the champions' 


Teams consist of four players 
each with most teams canying one al- 

does not show up. The competition 
will be double elimination with the 

winner of Uie losers' bracket facing die 
undefeated team in the championship

This year the Student Associa-

are already making plans and choos- 
ing teams so that play may begin as 
scheduled in January.

sahly Reflects On His Year 

/( was just a little aver a year ago 
thai Dr. Donald R. Sahly left Sin- 
gapore to become president of South- 
ern College of Seventh-day Adventists. 
His first year has been anything but 
calm. Southern Accent editors Jim 
Huenergardl and Janet Conley met 
with Sahly recently and revie\\-ed the 
events of the first year, discussing 
some of the continuing issues on cam- 
Accent: Do you feel thai you have 
changed the direction of this college 

Sahly: That's hard for me to say in that 
I came in and immediately charged 
some things relative to worship atten- 
dance and chapels attendance and ves- 
per programs and so on. I don't have a 
sense or feeling what the spiritual di- 
rection was before that 1 just felt that 
if we were going to run a really Sev- 
enth- day Advent is I campus that it 
should have these elements and 1, with 
the help of the deans and the student 
life people, instituted those things. I 
don't luiow if that's a turnaround in Ihe 
spiritual attitude or not. 

What I am pleased about is that at 
the end of the fall week of prayer, we 
set up the cafeteria for the Agape feast 
for so many people based on about the 

the last few years. We were about 70 
seals short I don't know if you would 
call that a turnaround, but at least its a 
positive sign that things are moving in 
the direction we would like them to go. 
There are other things that I hear 
on campus in terms of participation in 
spiritual activities which are encourag- 
ing to me which says that things are 
moving in a positive direction. 
Accent: Last year, you suppressed part 
of an article of the Southern Accent 
and slopped a music concen without 
supposedly any reluctance. Did you do 
this because, for effect, you were new 

Sahly: No, I felt that both diings were 
not conveying the image and the repu- 
tation that Southern College has had 
over the years. Both of these things 
were violating the school's image and 
the message that we want lo send out 
as an administration as to the quality of 
student life on this campus. That's why 
diey were stopped, not to create any 
kind of effect. I would take a stand to 
stop any kind of thing that I fell was a 
violation of the school's standards and 

done that kind of thing o

Friendly, who is the Edward R. 
MuiTow Professor Emeritus of Broad- 
cast Journalism at Columbia Graduate 
School of Journalism, has conducted 
more than 200 conferences, engaging 
journalists, judges, lawyers, business 
executives and government officials in 
dialogue to encourage communication 
between the news media and other ar- 
eas of society. 

As part of die President's Lecture

His first question to tiie student/ 
faculty panel, was "Would you ever 
tell a lie?" Sounds simple enough. 

But if one said "No. I would 
never lie," Friendly, who was con- 
stantly playing devil's advocate for the 
sake of an argument, would turn 
around trying to trap that person. 

after the discussion. He added tiiai ask- 
ing whether a person, as a sinner, 
would ever lie or not is a different 
question and difficult to answer. 

Friendly's visit to Southern Col- 
lege received coverage from local lele- 

Friendly's humorous remarks en- 
couraged the audience to feel part of 
the discussions. "Let's suppose," said 
Friendly to Thierry, "that you and I are 
sitting down to a glass of sherry." 
Then, with the audience paying full at- 
tention, he said, "Oh, 1 forgot where 1 
am. Better make it a glass of water." 

"He was very positive for our 
school," said Dr. Ben McAnhur, refer- 
ring to Friendly. "A very good com-

SA Social Vice President Is Master Of Fun And Games 

Haluska and Friendly hit it off 
well throughout die day after a bout 
over a metaphor Haluska used: "Too 
many cooks spoil the soup." 

Friendly turned to Haluska and 
said "That's a pretty lousy metaphor, 
for a man in the metaphor business." 
Haluska then referred to something 
Harry Truman once said to support his 
metaphor. "If you can't stand the heat, 
gel out of die kitchen." Haluska said 
Friendly had just told him that "since I 
was an English teacher, I knew nothing 
about history."

Accent: Do you feel like the retrench- 
ment put you in an awkward position? 
Sahly: To have to do thai your very 
first year as a new administrator on 
campus puts you in a very awkward 
position with your faculty because you 
immediately have to come in and work 
with a heavy hand and you have to 
take hold of things and really steer 
them and manage them in a very auto- 
cratic way. Although you use demo- 
autocratic in the way you do things. I 
mean, these things have to happen and 

for the faculty to vote. There's 

lined in the faculty handbook and the 
processes were followed. But it's still a 
very director-oriented kind of thing.

Are you saying that you felt that this

Accent; In the dorm tl 

policy that if you v 

t hav( 

over 23 years 
) sign out for 
Sabbath school or go to any worships 
or chapel. Why is that changed? 
Sahly: I think that we have applied a 
dormitory rule lo dormitory students, 
regardless where they are in age, sim- 
ply because they are in the dormitory. 
College students who are over 23 have 
a totally free option of living outside of 
the dormitory. 


Accent: Ii depends if they can handle it 
financially or not. 

Sahly: Well, they have that option. If 
they chose to stay in the dorm, they 
have come under the dorm regulations. 
That is something that I myself did not 
invoke, that is something that came out 
of the deans' council and the student 
life committee. 

It was strictly a dorm management 
policy that brought that change about; 

it lifestyle. 

e students who v 

I fol- 

ving the dorm regulations, which 
made it difficult for us to project the 
kind of image we want for the institu- 
tion. In other words on Friday night, as 
1 have said in donn worships, the Sab- 
bath has begun we would like to see a 
change in lifestyle for the Sabbath. We 
would like to see a change in dress, we 
want 10 hear a difference in music, we 

want them to visibly see that this is a 
college campus that projects that ob- 
servance of Sabbath in its lifestyle in 
its students. If you have a lot of stu- 
dents living in a dormitory who do not 
have to abide by that rule, they project 
an image that you don't want. 

So our feeling is if they don't want 
10 project that image, then they need to 
get their own facility where they can 
make that independent decision. But if 
they are going to live under our roof, 
and this is going to be a Sabbath keep- 
ing. Sabbath observing roof, house. 

should have their own choice - the 
creator of the universe has given every 
person the choice. But that choice is 
theirs. But when they make a choice, 
that damages the reputation of the in- 
stitution, that's what bothers me. 

I mean I feel sorry for the person 
who drinks and smokes, they're violat- 
ing health principles that hurt them 
personally, and I want to help teach 
them a better way. But the biggest hurt 
that comes, over and above their per- 
sonal hurt, is that they have hurt the 
reputation of this institution. It's a 
mark against the school, it's a mark 
against the rest of the students when 
somebody violates one of the prin- 
ciples of Adventist lifestyle. And that 
troubles me because it breaks down 
our public relations; it breaks down 
our reputation. 

Forcing somebody lo go to 


church does not make them more reli- 



gious, but It does protect the rest who 

do, and it does protect the reputation of 


' \'l 

the institution. And that is why it has 


to be done.

that regard than do ihe other college

"Man, we're going to get at least 50 of 
those - you know, of those 80 should 
show up." But instead we got about 35. 
You know, so, that was a little disap- 
pointing. But at the same time, I'm 
certainly not disappointed with the fact 
that the enrollment is up. 

Oh, what else has disappointed 
me? Fund raising has been good. You 
know, we've had over one million dol- 
lars come in this past year? It's been 
the highest it's ever been in the history 
of the school. In terms of development 
and fund raising and scholarships -

"Forcing somebody

Adventist education ; 
the most conservative? 
Sahly: TTie word t 
with it both s

tional. Traditionally, the Seventh-day 
Adventist church and the Seventh- day 
Adventist educational system, has been

I'm not sure what the temi "conser-

may talk to some person and ihey think 
to go for a bike ride on Sabbath is 
rather a liberal approach to Sabbath 
keeping and compared to those people 
who use their boat and go water skiing, 
it's a rather conservative activity - you 
see. So when you use the word conser- 
vative it's a difficult thing. I prefer to 
use the terminology of traditional. 
Accent: Do you feel that we are the 
most traditional of the Adventist col- 
leges? From your perspective? 
Sahly: Wc have had that reputation on 
this campus for years. I certainly 
would not stand up and say in any 
place. "Come to Southern College be-

Accent: Will required worships make

convening to the constituency who is 
"paying the bill" that we are putting 
fonh the effort that we are teaching, 
thai we are adhering to, that we are 
propagating and we are bringing

I sense a good feeling amongst the

would attend chapel programs; I wish 
there were ways lo develop more inter- 
action between faculty and students in 
campus outreach - in mission projects. 
And yet this is a very missionary-

Miranda was up two games to one in the 
first set and was threatening to wreak Jaecks'

Jaecks held serve and tied the set at two. Al- 
though this seems insignificant, Miranda said 
later that losing that game was the turning point 
in the match.

Jaecks' ability to control the tempo was the dif- 
ference in the match. Fmal score was 6-3, 6-1. 

Jaecks went on to play Steve Vogel in the 
semi-finals only to find himself early, one set to 
none. But Jaecks showed character bouncing 
back in the second set to lead three games to 

Vogel answered by winning six straight 
games, lliough Vogel won in straight sets, the 
entire match took nearly two hours thanks to 
long rallies. 

Vogel will meet the winner of the Ted

it mutually. 

Both groups feel thai they have analyzed the situation 
correctly and stubbornly reftise to admit that the other 
might not be as wrong as they suppose. 

The faculty should be the fasi to attempt to bridge 
this gap in feelings. They have the most experience in the 
issues and should be able to identify the students' reason- 
ing and cmpathi2e with it. The staif should under no cir- 
cumstances totally ignore the snidents' opinions and views 
about any issue, regardless of its sensitiviQ'.

they would find thai the students not only have a lot of in-

Gym Team Travels 
To California Clinic

Rip-flopping and mat-hopping 
are at (he heighi of things the Southern 
College gymjiastic team will be doing 
in CaJifomia this week. 

The 30 member team, known as 
the "Gym Masters," under the direc- 
tion of Head Coach Ted Evans and 
Assistant Coach Steve Jaecks, is the 
only college team outside the Pacific 
Union panicipaling in the West Coast 
Aero Gymnastics Work-Shop on the 
campus of La Sierra College. 

Loma Linda University, who is 
sponsoring the three day woitshop, 
invited Southern to attend. 

Evans said he didn't think LLU 
was completely serious when asking 
the SC Gym Masters to come because 
of the distance. "It's a little unusual 
for them to invite us", Evans said, add- 

ing that the Gym Masters jumped at 
the chance to go. 

Southern's team, along with Pa- 
cific Union College, Walla Walla Col- 
lege and more than 15 academies will 
meet on the La Sierra campus to share 
and sharpen gymnastic skills.

"One thing we are trying to do 
is to make it recognizable as a col-

the yearbook is already on its way to 
becoming a quality publication. Jos-

According to Head Librarian Peg

than 57,000 each year in books alone. 

She :

gradually worse every year." 

McKee Library receives approxi- 
mately 950 periodicals. Recently, all

"I'm a great believer in having in- 
formation as accessible as possible," 
Miss Bennett said. "TTie problem is 
that the information was no longer ac- 
cessible because it had walked away." 
She said that the cuirent back-issues 
had to be put on reserve in order to 
protect them and keep them available 
to all students. 

According to Miss Bennett, the 
periodicals which are torn up most fre- 
quently are those with nature pictures, 
those with articles about psychology, 
sociology, business and other monthly 
and weekly periodicals when they con- 
tain racy pictures. She said that jour- 
nal prices have increased by about 200 
percent in the last five years, making it 
nearly impossible to replace missing 

The most recent issue of each f)e- 
riodical still is kept in the browsing 
area. But each one is now protected by 
the new Check/Point security system 
which was installed at the beginning of 
the school year. The system automati- 
cally checks for library books or peri- 
odicals, setting off a loud alarm and 
locking the exit gate if it senses one 
wiih a target detector that hasn't been 
demagnetized at the check-out counter. 

Miss Bennett said that during the 
past seven or eight years, various secu- 
rity systems have been considered, but 
there has never been enough money to 
pay for one. However, an individual 
who Miss Bennett said wishes to re- 
main anonymous recently donated the 
amount necessary to buy a securi^ 
system for the library. 

The alarm has already gone off a 
number of times according to Miss 
Bennett. One girl was stopped when 
she tried to leave while hiding a book 
or magazine under her clothing. 

"The majority of the students 
have to pay for the sins of the minor- 
ity." said Miss Bennett. She also said 
Ihat most people react posiUvely to the 
changes when they understand why 
they were made. She said that the stu-

in the libraiy to see if we could find out But books aren't 
kept in the library anymore. They're kepi in students'

accessible for the majority of the students. 

It occurred to us that if students had made some son 
of arrangement with the library before taking the books - 
something like writing their names on cards and promising 
to return the books in four weeks, then we all might have a 
broader selection now. It's just a thought - probably im- 
practical. But then it also occurred to us thai if these ar- 
rangements had been made, and if the library hadn't lost 
$7,000 in new books last year, then maybe we would have 
$7,000 in new books this year. Imagine: political science 
books, sociology books, and books about the guy who said, 
"Thou Shalt not steal," all with 1987 copyrights ■ in 1 987!

today. Lucifer, who once led the 
angelic hosts in praising God, 
now uses his musical ability to 
flght against God. And the battle 
rages for the mind of each man 
and woman. It is my firm con- 
viction that the Devil is seeking 
access to our minds, and one of 
his most effective we^nns is 
music. It is impossible to live 
for God if you are filling your 
mind with music inspired by tlie 
Fallen MusiciaiL 

In the past few weeks I 
have been greatly encouraged by 
the number of students who 
have come to my office to seek 
spiritual counsel. Invariably, 
music has been a problem area. 
One student told me thai the 
Lord has given him the courage 
to dispose of almost $1,000 
wDiTh of tapes. He hid decided 
after much prayer that be cotild 
not serve the Lord while the 
Fallen Musician had tiis head. 
As a result, be had fbund inner 
peace and joy. 

In the Ught of these en- 
couraging testimonies, it was a 
great disappointment to bear that 
Don McLean had been invited 
to perform on our campus. It is 
not my intentitm to be critical of 

McLean. As far as I know, he 
makes no profession of Christ. 
The only time that God's name 
was mentioned during the con- 
cert was when it was taken in 
vain. Neither does McLean pro- 
fess a Christian lifestyle. The 
moral values advocated were 
clearly hedonistic. Here's just 
one example, taken from a re- 
cording of the concert: 

Well I like the way you're 
moving and 1 like the way you 

Like the way you let your 
locomotion show 

Cause my driving wheel is 

traveling and my piston's 

working good 

If your car gives you 

some trouble baby 

I'll take a look underneath 

your hood. 

And I love you, I care, I 

really want you with me 


What caused me the great- 
est concern was the fact that 
students received two diapel 
ciediiB and one worship credit 
for a secular rock concert. Who 
are we encouraging Ibem to 

I honestly feel that we are 
sending a mixed message to our 
sbuienls. We encourage both 
our smdents and our teachers to 
i4)hoI(t Oiristian teachings and 
standards, and thai we pay 
someone to come to Southern 

College and tear them down. 

1 spoke to one student ji 
before the concert. She said, "It | 
is a Gospel concert, i 
They are giving us chapelj 
credit." Perhaps we ow 
students an explanation. Somef 
how, though unintentionally. wJ 
are misleading them. 

The intent of this article i;

taught us that "if anyone Ci 
one of these little one 
stumble, it would be better for I 
hun to have a large millstone I 
hung around his neck and to I 
drowned in the depths of B 
ses" (Matt 18:6). We must be | 
accountable for our actions.

Gladson Writes, Says He Left Under Duress 

In a letter lo the Southern Accent, 
Dr. Jerry Gladson states he left South- 
ern College under duress. 

Gladson, a professor of religion 
for 15 years, wrote a letter to the 
Southern Accent in response to a series 
of leners to the editor from currenl and 
former students concerned with where 
he is and why he left. 

Before accepting his current pwsi- 
tion as academic dean and professor of 
1 and integrative studies at the 
Psychological Studies Institute in At- 
., Gladson chaired the Honors 
I Committee for the Southern Scholars 
Honors Program, which encourages

lasier's degree and Ph.D in Old Tes- 

I from Vanderbili University in 

told his theological views would no 
longer be compatible with the 
college's growing conservatism. 

Dr. Gordon Hyde, who is pres- 
ently the director-editor of the Ellen G. 
White Memorial Publications office, 
was religion department chairman at 

"I think ihis is taking us back into 
an era and into an area that is diffucult 
to characterize," Hyde said in response 
to questions about the theological 
trends of the department. "I think for 
me to comment would be adverse." 

Dr. Jack Blanco, current chair- 
roan of the religion depanmeni, said he 
could not comment on any aspects of 

SC President Donald Sahly. 

In an interview with the Southern 
Accent, Sahly staled, "I would be 
happy lo discuss the absence of any

the past with any student at any time.

By Gene Krishingnw 

Tears, hugs and the reunion of 
old friends kept the memories rolling 
this year at one of the biggest Southern 
College Alumni Homecomings ever. 

Besides the regular schedule of 
meetings, seminars, worships and class 
gei-iogether^ that attracted an esti-

weekend included the Southern

and a Broom Shop Reunion, bodi of

The third annual "Midnight Mad-

It would take years to get this many at

Her only complaints about life in 
the United States are that it is "heciic - 
it's much more relaxed at home," and 
people here are too much alike. "In

When O.K. Okikee came to the 
United Slates, he thought football was 
one of the strangest things he'd seen. 

"I didn't realize that the players 
had padding underneath their shirts. I 
thought that's the way the person re- 
alty looked like," he said. 

Okikee moved to the States when 
he was 13, leaving his home of Port 
Harcourt, Nigeria, Africa, to join his 
family here. 

His father came to the U.S. in 
1972 to attend Oakwood College 
while his wife and sons remained in

Make '87 Season Memorable 

In the women's league Boyd scored five 
limes as many points as they gave up. Boyd 
also scored more points than ].D. and Green put 
together. In fact, two players. Gibbons and 
Travis, scored more points combined than the 
entire J.D. team, who finished second in points 
scored. This type of domination allowed their 
record to remain unblemished at 7-0. 

In "B" league Davis and Jones, the two 
teams lied for first, allowed fewer points com- 
bined than the last place Ozmeni group. 

Epperson by far had the most potent of- 
fense with a league high 222 points scored. This 
was more than 50 points higher than their clos- 

est competition. Hope and Grisso of the Epper- 
son team learned up to score more points than alt 
but two teams total points scored. 

There should be a fair number of "B" 
leagues that move up to the "A" level next year. 

In "A" league first and second Durby and 
Butler scored more than 90 points in excess of 
what they gave up. Durby scored over 50 points 
more than their closest competition. Fulbright 
gave up more points than most teams scored. 

C-17 at Talge Hall is noted for the highest 
point total of any league, as Jimmy Malone and 
Steve Kreitner are roommates, Kreilner scored a 
league high 104 points and Malone was second, 
with 85 for a total of 1 89 points. 

While looicing at this year's stats, winners 
show a strong performance on both "O" and "D."

All-Stars Rebound, Defeat Alumni 80-58 

By Randol Tliuesdee 

The Souihem College All-Stais opened their 
1987-1988 basketball season Satunlay night with an 
80-58 victory over the Alumni. Guard Steve Vogel 
scored 1 8 points and forward Marie McKenzie added 
14 to spark the All-Stars' win. 

The anticipation was great with memories of 
the All-Siars heartbreaking defeat last year at the 
hands of Oakwood College. TTiis game was viewed 
to be a measuring stick of how the All-Stars would 
rebound from their shortcomings of last year to be- 
come an interiocked unit. 

The Alumni were a good, intense exercise to 
help the Stars attain this meshed state. Although the 
Alumni hadn't played together as a team, they took 
advantage of the Stars' defensive weakness down 
low to grab an early four-point lead. This 8-4 lead 
would prove to be their largest of the game. 

For the home team. Brad Durby, who finished 
with 16 points, and Vogel, scored almost at will 
within 20 feet. The Alumni's tactical error of leaving 
the wings wide open to shoot gave the Stars plenty of 
opportunity to score. 

When the Alumni anempied to overplay the 
wings, point guard Rob Bo veil found McKenzie and 
Grisso open near the baseline and around the middle, 
respectively. These attempts didn't always assure 
two points for the Stars, but it was clear that the 
Alumni weren't going to shut them down defen- 

The Alumni held their own for a while, answer- 
ing Vogel and Durby as Wes White scored a game 
high of 20 points with some of his patented running 
jumpers from 17 feet. Ron Bunch, who got nearly all 
of his eight first half-points on lay-ups following of- 
fensive rebounds and Doug Coppess doing much of 
the same, added another 12 points. 

But when a couple of McKenzie jumpers and a 
Durijy lay-up off a sweet feed from Bovell put the 
Stars up by 10 with just under six minutes to go in 

the half, the Alumni cut die lead to six only to find 
the Stars snap back to lead by 10, 40-30, at the half. 

The second half started well for the Stars as 
they stretched the lead to 14 following a smooth al- 
ley-oop lay-up from guard Kevin Pride to McKenzie 
and a Greg Grisso lay-up off a quick inside pass 
from Bovell. The Alumni then stormed back with 
four lay-ups in a row, three by Coppess and one by 

After a regrouping lime out, Vogel and Bovell 
hit mid-range jumpers to get the lead back to 10 
again. But White and Coppess wouldn't go away. 
Their buckets narrowed the Stars' lead to 54-48 with 
10.30 minutes to go. The Stars finished the game 
with a 14- 6 run capped by Pride connecting widi 
BoveU on a great lead bounce pass off a fast break 
with 3.15 minutes to go to add a litde salt. Bovell 
finished with 14 points. 

"We played terrible," Alumnus John O'Brien 
said of his team. 

Others were a little more understanding. "We 
were a little out of shape but we had a lot of fun," 
Coppess said. "We could never keep them off the 
boards and we Uirewaway alotof balls." 

In all, the Alumni committed 16 lumovei? and 
it was apparent the lack of practice hurt them. 

"They were a pretty good team," Durby said. 
"If they would have capitalized on all of their offen- 
sive rebounds, we'd have been down in the first half. 
Shoot, if they'd shot 50 percent in the first half, diey 
would have been up by ten." 

As for the All-Stars, they were a litUe slow 
starting off but good outside shooting put them in the 
game and kept diem there. "I thought we worked 
well together," Durby said of his t

As a team, the Stars had 12 steals and McK- 
enzie had two blocked shots. Dave Neraess put in 
another noteworthy performance when he added a

But even though a couple All-Star players felt 
the team had good chemistry, odiers believe the team 
needs to work on its defense and rebounding. The 
Stars were out-rebounded 26-24. 

"We'll get better with time," Vogel said. 

The All-Stars are set to tackle the Oakwood 
team again in February. The question is, could ihcy 
beat Oakwood right now? Alunmus Coppess is opti- 
mistic. "I think it'll be close," he said. "I think 
ftey've got a chance."

Yearbook Secrecy, 
Year-End Surprise 

It's not the job for someone who needs insCant grati- 
fication. The gratification comes months later. This is the 
job for someone able to envision a final product; the job 
for someone willing to work with only small parts of a 
whole; the job for someone committed to secrecy. 

For editor Mark Waldrop and the Southern Memo- 
ries staff, secrecy is a big pan of living up their motto: 
"You'd be surprised." 

Unlike the rest of us, Waldrop can't share his suc- 
cesses and failures or get comments and advice from his 
friends. Because of the mandatoiy secrecy, no one outside 
the staff really knows whether the yearbook will be good 
or noL Many never even Uiink about iL Consequently, the 
yearbook editor can have a low- profile, somewhat-thank- 
less job early in the school year. 

Already this school year, the work of the Memories 
staff has been commended by one of the few allowed to 
view it - Josicns, Memories' publishing company. 

Because of the work Waldrop has sent in, Jostens 
asked Waldrop to submit Memories as this district's rep- 
resentative in a national yearbook contest This means 
Memories has surpassed the yearbooks from larger area 
schools like the University of Tennessee al Chattanooga 
and Temple University. 

True to its motto. Memories' theme may surprise 
you come April, but its high quality probably will be no 
surprise at all. 

Spiritual nought 

When Jesus arrived in Jerusalem, he went to the 
Temple and began lo drive out all those who were buying 
and selling. He made a whip from cords and drove all the 
animals out and ovcrluraed the money changers' tables, 
scattering their coins. Jesus ordered all the men out and the 
disciples remembered the scriptures saying, "My devotion 
to your house, O God, bums in me like a fire." Afterwards,

sic." Symphony Director Orlo Gilbert

to the SC musicians' attitudes. "I 
thought the behavior of the (SC] stu- 
dents was unusually good. They were 
so positive." 

The orchestra also performed at

Eugene A. Korff 

Dear Editor: 

The article regarding Dr. 
Gladson's departure left me with an 
unanswered question: what was the 
origin of the "duress" mentioned by 
Dr. Gladson? Assumptions are made 
when a blanket statement is issued; as- 
sumptions are dangerous. In creating 
an infonned opinion, here is where re- 
ality fails us, and our informed opin- 
ions begin to draw tiieir own infer- 
ences. They are often wrong. Opinions 
become based on inference rather than 
information. The phrase "informed 
opinion" is a loaded one in journalism. 
An informed opinion implies knowl- 
edge while accepting the bias that is 
inherent in any opinion. Informed 
opinions are not spontaneous; there 

ively involved. 

I have been a

same token, how can I contest the

Accurately informed opinions

present information of the nature in-

and maintain complete context? It 
would take the entire Soutiiem Accent 
lo list the circumstances past and pres- 
ent that were involved. I know that is 
why Dr. Sahly made his comment in 
the article. "I would be happy to dis- 
cuss the absence of any teacher . , . 
with any student . . . But some things 
cannot be staled in print" It is simply 
impractical. This does not invalidate 
the article, but I encourage the reader 
10 explore subjective writing and make 
context his desired objective. I took the 
opportuni^ to search for context re- 
garding tiiis particular issue; die article 
made perfect sense after I understood a 
range of background information. 
Without context, however, my first 
"informed opinion" was wrong. This 
happens, it is dangerous, and is reason 
enough lo insist on context before 
forming an informed opinion.

Garver Plans Winter Park 
Ski Trip For Spring Break 

ll's time to make plans for the Winter Park, Colo, ski 
[rip sponsored by Southern College. There have been a num- 
ber of improvements to last year's package deal to make 
skiing even more enticing. 

After lodging more dian five miles from the slopes last 
year, Phil Garver has arranged shorter travel lime with the 
lodging site only a mile away. Garver has also arranged a 
pa>inent plan to alleviate the financial crunch. 

The first installment of $100 is due December 10 with 
the second coming January 15 and amounting to $200. A final 
$85 will be added on February 15, twelve days before stu- 
dents head off to hang ten on the slopes. 

This total fee of $385 will include ttansportation to and 
from Winter Paik, six nights in accommodations close to 
town, equipment rental for five days and lift tickets at Win- 
ter Park and Mary Jane for five days. 

If a spring vacation in Colorado suits your liking call J 
238- 2852 at the Gym and make your plans for a "Winter it

Where is the emphasis on wit-

are questions the General Conference 

These questions were deemed 
important enough to send a representa- 
tive of the GC to Las Vegas for the 
National SDA Physical Education con- 
vention last spring to gain a bener per- 
spective for what's wanted and needed 
regarding interscholaslic sports. The 
GC was prepared to cooperate and im- 
plement an lA policy because of na- 
tionwide interest. 

Surprisingly, our physical educa- 
tion leaders of the denomination 
couldn't agree on one specific formal. 

The question, for curiosity's 
sake, would be why Southern doesn't 
already have an inlerscholastic sports 
program when Union. Walla Walla. 
LaSierra, Columbia Union and a num- 
ber of other colleges and academies 
have had programs for years. The re- 
sponses varied but all pointed to the 

"First of all, Ted Evans, head 
coach, said. "Without constituent sup- 
port, these programs wouldn't have 
made it off the ground. If inlerscholas- 
tic sports were to make il at Southern 
we would need the same support." 

Assistant Coach Steve Jaecks 
added, "We won't make a move unbl 
the General Conference take a stand 
and lays out guidelines for our schools 
to follow." 

"The committee was estab- 
lished because interscholastic sports 
has become a major issue. We pub- 
lished a 24-page booklet stating thai 
interscholastic sports would be al- 
lowed and that local constituency 
should govern most issues dealing with 
sports. If any major problems would 
arise the General Conference reserved 
the right to intervene,"Paul Gordon,

those that make it all worth iL

among the positive aspects. 
Learning to follow the coaches'

Wohlers Plans Tour of 7 European Countries 

By Janet L.Con]ey 

No one guarantees thai you'L 
sec the cast of the Love Boat filming a 
show in Venice or that you'll bump 
into Marie Osmond in Rome, but it has 
happened before. 

Histoiy Professor Dr. William 

Wohlers does guarantee, however, thai 

the Southern College European study 

IT will provide an "adventuresome" 

\ experience of seven central European 

According to Wohlers, this year's 
\ monlh-long tour from May 25 to June 
24 is "a condensation of the first two 

Wohlers Ijegan directing the tours 
in 1982, touring Europe every other 
I year. Although the celebrities he en- 
countered on the 1984 trip made an 
I impression in Wohlers* mind, he said 
I the really memorable parts of the tour 
; artistic, historical and cultural 

"[It i) 

I way of] preparing yourself to go back 
d travel on your own." 

The tours are tailored for students 
I are open to anyone interested. Stu- 
nts may receive up to six credit 
I hours for participating. The hours are 
ivailable in upper or lower division 
History and in humanities (HMNTS 
1 205, Arts and Ideas). 


3,395 t 

use their KLM credits), two meals a 
day, hotel lodging, inter-European 
transportation and tuition for six hours, 
worth about $1,000. 

Before leaving for Europe, stu- 
dents receiving class credit read one 
textbook for every three hours of credit 
and do chapter outlines in place of 
quizzes and tests. They also write open 
book essays and keep a daily journal 
while in Europe. 

Wohlers does ^larantee 
that the Southern College 
European study tour will 
provide an "adventure- 
some" experience of seven 
central European countries. 

"Adventure in Europe," as the 
tour is called, offers up to 35 students 
the chance to experience the architec- 
ture, art and history of present day 
Holland, Germany, Austria, Italy, 
Switzerland, France and Belgium. The 
tour focuses on the present but also 
focuses on ancient, medieval and other 
periods of history. 

Although the tour requires a lot 
of inter-European travel, Wohlers said 

"If you compare it to other col- 
lege-oriented [ours that spend one 
night and one day in major cities." he 
begins, saying that the SC tour will 
spend at least two days and three 

nights at each stop, "I would match 
this trip with any other trip with seeing 
what is important and enjoying it." 
Selected highlights of the tour in- 

Holland: visit a "klompen" or 
wooden shoe factory, Anne Frank's 
house and an art museum devoted to 
the works of impressionist painter Vin- 
cent Van Gogh. 

France: visit the Eiffel tower, the 
Ixiuvre (the art museum containing the 
Mona Lisa), the Palace of Versailles 
and Notre Dame Cathedral. 

Switzeriand: visit Bern, the capi- 
tal of the Swiss confederation, and take 
a boat ride on Lake Thun in the Alpine 

Italy: visit the leaning tower of 
Pisa, the Roman forum and coliseum, 
the Vatican, the Sisiine Chapel, Sl 
Peter's Basilica, the Grand Canal in 
Venice and view the works of Mich- 
elangelo and other artists. 

Austria: attend a symphony, 
opera or other musical performance in 
Vienna, see the Habsburg Winter Pal- 
ace and the Dolomite Mountains. 

West Gemiany: visit the former 
Nazi concentration camp at Dachau 
and the baroque palace of Nymphen- 

Belgium: drive to Belgium via 
the Rhine River Valley, famous for its 
wineries and grape vinyards; in Bel- 
gium take a walking lour of the llth 
century city of Bruges, the first major 
1 city in Northern Europe.

"What I want to cover are the 
most important spots in Europe in a

It was then that Garren was in-

show his students "what the anisis 
were like." By II that morning he'd 
planned the first tour, including seven 
students. From thai humble beginning, 
the tour grew to include an average of 
70 siudenls in recent years. Some 
even make repeat trips. 

Each student will write an eight- 
page paper on what they saw in the 

museums, and upper division students 
will also write a six-page paper. The 
class is worth three credit hours. 

A flat fee of $300 includes trans- 
portation lo and from New York, lodg- 
ings, ballei and theater tickets as well 
as museum fees. Additional money is 
needed for transportation in New York 
and for food. For those who like to 
shop, extra spending money is a plus.

Modem Art; the Cloisters, a medieval

Now that the GC does finally 
suppon lA, what will assure us of hav-

resentative of SDA standards of excel- 
lence? All agreed that it would be nec- 
essary to have a paid coach that would 
be contractually bound to coaching the 
team. TTiis would assure a qualified 
person that wouldn't be overioaded 
and treat coaching as a sideline. 

"We wouldn't want our chaplain to

A definite deterrent for this and 
every other new program is finding the

Gordon touched on this pursuit of 
excellence saying. "Some things about

Coach Evans expands on this idea 
saying, "Let's recruit good players - 
which means our academies, who are 
our feeder system, would need their 
own disciplined programs as well - and 
put the emphasis of wimessing on the 
Christ-like attitudes of the players be- 
longing to a successful program. Let's 
don't have a program to watch it fail." 

Joi Richards, an SC senior physi- 
cal education major and former mem- 
ber of the Walla Walla Fellowship of 
Christian Athletes, shares her lA expe- 
rience, saying, "I enjoyed the closeness 
of the team. We would lake time for 
Christ before every practice and 
through sharing as a team 1 grew per-

lem lies with having a losing team. "It 
would be a better wimess if we could 
compete with our opponents. Our wit- 
ness after the game would have had a 
much greater impact if we had won." 

So the trick is to have a respect- 
able team but not spend too much time 
or money in the process. This confiici.

Worn-out Excuses Keep Absence Committee Occupied 

"Mosi of what we get are prei^ 
ine excuses," Rozell said. 

However, the committee is suspi- 
is of what Rozell calls "old and

This court of appeals involves the 
input of four other people besides 
Rozell: Dorothy Hooper from the 
Nursing Department; Larry Williams 
from Behavioral Sciences; Men's As- 
sistant Dean Stan Hobbs and Women's 
Assistant Dean Kassandra Krause. 

Based on guidelines listed in the 
Snjdeni Catalog and 
individuals meet for s 
minutes each Tuesday

nilely raises a red flag. 

Jan Haluska, a former i 
chairman agreed, "One big thing they 
[the committee] do is to screen out the 
bad guys from the good ones." 

Acconding to Rozell, the commit- 
tee "doesn't distrust students" and is 
"basically a trusting bunch" that "will 
honor any legitimate excuse." He feels 
that the committee "gives the students 
another avenue of appeal. And that is 
positive for the snidents." 

Yet all the faculty interviewed 
felt that perhaps the most positive as- 
pect about the Absence Committee is 

that it allows for standardization 
among all the teachers and as Dean 
Hobbs said, "takes the heat off the 

Rozell agreed by saying thai "the 

comminee takes pressure off the teach- 
ers and administrators." 

"You can't play teachers against 
each other," Haluska added. 

Despite its advantages, there are 
a few problems with the use of the 
Absence Committee. For starters, not 
every facul^ member uses the services 
that the committee offers. 

"I would say that at least half the 
teachers use it," Haluska said. "But 
this causes difficulty for the students if 
half their teachers use the commiitee 
and half don't." 

"Most of my teachers don't use it 
at all," Chris Grissom said. 

Dean Hobbs felt that "everyone 
should use it," referring to teachers. 

Probably the most common com- 
plaint heard from students is that the 
Absence Committee causes unneces- 
sary red tape. 

"I use the Absence Committee 
because if I miss a class because of 
woilc, 1 want it excused. But I would 
like it better if you only had to go 
through the teacher. It's just a hassle," 
Angela Travis said.

Rake 'N Run Lots Of Fun Debates- 

By Gene Krishtogner 

"Joy's overflowin', bless your 
souls," was all the elderly woman 
could say when she arrived home from 
church Sunday to find SO students rak- 
ing and cleaning up her lawn. Then 
she went aroimd and started hugging 

"She was so happy," Collegiate 
Missions President Werner Staven- 
hagen said. "It really made us feel 

Stavenhagen, who led Stmday's 
30 member Rake *n Run project, ex- 
plained its name. "We rake a yard and 
then run to another." he said. 

Meals on Wheels, a service that 
delivers hot food to needy elderly, and 
Neighborhood Enterprises, a service 
concerned with providing low income 
housing, worked with Stavenhagen to 
find needy people who were too old, 
r sick to do 

The students spent over thro 
hours raking and collected more thai 
200 hundred bags of leaves. 

"We dumped a pile of leaves ii 

t of o 

high tl 

"We have a goal of trying to 
provide affordable housing for low-in- 
come families," Debra Campbell, a 
worker for Neighborhood Enterprises 
said. "And this, (students helping with 
yard work] is one of the ways we can 

bigger than some 
by," Karen Carter, 
project said. 

Carter and Stavenhagen were 
very optimistic about the sucess of the 

"They (the people] couldn't be- 
lieve others were coming out and help- 
ing on their own accord," Carter said. 

Before leaving the houses, some 
of the students left copies of "Happi- 
ness Digest," a revised version of 
"Steps to Christ," by EUcn G. White, 
with a personal note inside: "We came 
to rake "n run, we had lots and lots of 
fim. We hope that you will find some 
love we've left behind. Students of 
Southern College." 

Mrs. Campbell said she hopes the 
students will continue to keep up the 
good work. 

"Werner's group can certainly be 
a model," she said. 

CARE will be sponsoring a sec 
ond project December 5, called Com 
munity Action Day, and will pass ou 
clothes and sing songs to peop e n 
downtown sections of Chattanooga. 

Third, the costs of both food and 
non-food items have spiraled upwards. 
Evans cited an example of the rising 
price of lettuce because of the failure 
of this year's crop in Texas. He says 
he paid $19 for a case of lettuce this 
week, and may have to pay between 
$24 10 S25 a case next week. The let- 
tuce will have to come from Califor- 

Evans says he would like to "help 
and please the students" but economics 
and expenses affect the CK's 
operations. "If something isn't paying 

for itself," 

After consulting with the CK's 
manager, Mary Wisner, and the head 
supervisor, Linda Mavrakos. Evans 
decided to close during afternoons this 
summer and later decided to continue 
the practice through the school year. 
The trio is making plans to cut back 
further wherever possible. 

Whether the CK opens in the af- 
ternoon or not, Evans says that prices 
will go up, but at most 5 to 6 cents an 
item. ""A whole lot of siufT is in- 
volved." Evans added, "that all effects

Events Of Semester

meticulous I was about cleaning the Accent office, and 
now, it seems like I don't even care. My most memorable 
moments-have to be those up in the Accent office. Memo-

In the spring and fall of 
every odd-numbered year, we 
pencil our opinions of their 
teaching style onto blue and 
white Scantron sheets. Those 
; compiled and given 
the teachers. But we 
them again, 
aps a published 
evaluation - not neces- 
sarily the one the administration 
is using this month - could be 
beneficial to both students and 

Some questions could be 
taken from the evaluation form 
the administration provides, but 
others might not be appropriate, 
according lo Dr. Floyd Green- 
leaf, vice president for aca- 
demic administration. Greenleaf 
said teachers might want some 
questions left unpublished for 
reasons of privacy. 

Some questions on the 
current evaluation ask students 
to rate the degree to which they 
agree that: 

*The teacher's grading 

included in the student- infor- 
mation survey would depend 
upon administrative approval. 
Using administration evalu- 
ation questions and other stu- 
dent- oriented questions, the 
survey could operate in much 

administration's evaluation 
system. At the end of the 
semester, students in every 
class could fill out a question- 
naire about the teacher and the 
specific class. 

Questions could include: 
*Rate the difficulty of the 

in the material and the way it 
was presented. 

'Will this teacher give 
you points back on a test/quiz 
if you persuade him/her with a 
valid reason for your answer? 

♦What style of testing 
docs this teacher usually use? 
— essay, multiple choice, tnie/ 
false, a combination, etc. 

•What is the teacher's 
area of specialty and does he/ 
she have a good knowledge of 
the material being presented? 

Students also could evalu- 
ate how much they enjoyed the 
class, whether they would take 

teacher, what the teacher's pol- 
icy on absences was and the ar 
eas the teacher excels in and ihi 
areas that need improvement 

Some might argue tha 
such an evaluation wouli 
merely be a "tiiis teacher is bet- 1 
ter than that teacher" ^pe of I 

teaching methods and styles 
not teacher comparisons. 

Rather than relying on I 
student grapevine method of I 
rating teachers or choosing a 
multi-sectioned class by lime - 
not teacher, students could use 
the evaluation as a sneak pre- 
view of each class, helping | 
them match learning and teach- 
ing styles. 

If a survey system like this 
was instituted, with the results j 
distributed before registration I 
each semester, perhaps it could I 
erase a little of the bumbling | 
mystique of selecting 

It also could help students I 
find compatible, not combative. ^ 
styles of learning.

SC Republicans Discuss Candidates, Voter Power 

A Republican official loJd stu- 
denis Thursday ihat they could make 
the difference in influencing Hamillon 
County's vote for the 1988 presiden- 

Tennessee's third district co- 
chaiman Oscar Brock was ihe fea- 
[ured speaker for the Southern College 
Republican's second meeting. 

'i'm really impressed with what 
Southern College is doing." said 
Brock, a Stanford graduate, Merrill- 
Lynch consultant and community po- 

SCR chairman Woody \Vhiie led 
the meeting of nearly 65 siudents. 
The meeting focused on the students' 
importance in the community. 

"Vm really happy with the grow- 
ing interest and response," White said. 
"People seem lo appreciate learning 
more about the political process". 

After White's opening remarks, 
the audience watched a 15- minute 
campaign video on presidential hope- 
ful Bob Dole. The first in a series of 
Republican candidate's videos, this 
presentation featured Dole's political 
views as it portrayed his strengths 
through his roles as a World War n 

It was a very interesting video," 
Student Association President Renou 
Korff said. "It's really great that stu- 
dents have the opportunity to learn 
more about the candidate they may 
vote for in 'Sfi." 

"This is exactly what we're 
trying to do," White said, "We want 
the students to get to know the candi- 
dates as well as possible."

March King Honored In Band's Performance 

Sanirday night, December 5, the 
Southern College Concert Band under 
the direction of Pat Silver gave a trib- 
ute performance to John Philip Sousa. 
The band played several Sousa se- 
lections including "The High School 
Cadets" and the famous "Stars and 
Stripes Forever" march. 

Soprano soloist Billye Brown 
Youmans was featurt;d in Victor 
Herbert's "Italian Street Song" and en- 
core selection "The Christmas Song.' 
s. Brown is on the music faculty at 
C and maintains a private studio in 
ner home on Signal Mountain. She re- 
vived her masters degree in perform- 
Id studio teaching from George 
Peabody College in Nashville, Tenn. 

Also featured was percussionist Lc- 

nard Cann. He played marimba in 

Man Joseph's piece "Serenata for 

[ 7° ^^"iba and Band." Cam, also 

played the xylophone in the encore 

number "Gallop" by Dmitii 
Kabalevsky. Cann, marimba and xylo- 
phone soloist, is the new band and 
choir director at Fletcher Academy in 
North Carolina. He graduated from 
Atlantic Union College. Cann re- 
ceived his masters of music education 
fi'om Andrews University in Michigan 
in 1982. Carm is a native Bermudan 
and spent the past four years leaching 
at the Bermuda Institute. He also 
spent time as the 1st percussionist of 

According to Mrs, Silver, there 
have been "Tribute lo Sousa" concerts 
throughout the nation. She also said 
that Sousa's "Stars and Stipes Forever" 
march was offically named the march 
song of the United States. 

John Philip Sousa was bom in 
Washington. D.C. on Nov. 6. 1854, 
the third of 10 children. As a child, he 
was an excellent student, both in his 
academic and musical studies. At age 
13, he planned on running away with a 
circus band, but his father, Antonio, 
enlisted him instead as an apprentice " 

musician in the U.S. Marine Band. Af- 
ter his military discharge at age 20, 
Sousa remained in Washington and 
continued conducting and performing 
on the violin, his first love. After sev- 
eral years of conducting, composing 
and performing in cities around the 
country, he accepted an appointment at 
age 25, as leader of the U.S. Marine 
Band. Twelve years later, he resigned 
from that post and fonned his own 
symphony concert band. Until his 
death on March 6. 1932. the Sousa 
Band performed for standing-room- 
only crowds of admirers both in the 
United States and abroad. 

Mrs. Silver said that when Sousa 
did a concert, he did more than his 
own numbers, which is why the SC 
band played a variety of other numbers 
along with some Sousa favorites. 

The band ended their concert with 
some Sousa favorites including "The 
Thunderer," "The Gladiator," and 
"Manhattan Beach." Other Christmas 
numbers were also performed as en- 

provements for the CK.

Miller Ski Movie Goes 'Beyond The Edge' 

Wanen Miller's "Beyond The 
Edge," an exciting, humorous and of- 
[en incredible adventure film which 
brings the thrill of skiing lo life, opens 
Saturday night at 8 pm in the gymna- 

"Beyond The Edge," the 37th 
feature film by internationally re- 
nowned "personal best" sports film 
maker Wairen Miller, explores the 
edge of a skier's reality - the edge 
where the instinct for self-preservation 
is balanced against the urge to chal- 
lenge one's limits "to risk it alt by 
climbing a little higher, skiing just a 
little farther..." 

Featured in "Beyond The Edge" 
are some of the world's most fearless 
and famous skiers who also jump from 
hot air balloons, off 100-fool high 
cliffs and race to break speed records. 
Dr. Ruth Westheimer shows off her 
skill on the slopes, as she explains the 
parallels between good skiing and 
good sex. Screeing (nmning down 
sleep mountain slopes without skis or 
snow), acrobatics, mogul slalom races 
and setting world speed records for 
riding on the roof of a car on skis are 
just a few of the daredevil antics 
caught by Wairen Miller's cameras. 
He also focuses on the newest equip- 
ment, including the mono ski, the 
latest rage on European slopes and the 
snoboard, the surfer's answer to win- 
ter time thrills. 

Miller and his camera crews 
logged over 150.000 air miles and an 
additional 50.000 miles on the road to 
film the most glamorous high altitude 
spots on earth. Zermait, Switzerland. 
Lech, Austria, the Canadian Buga- 
tws, the American Rockies, Chamo- 
nix, France and the mountains of New 
England are but a few of the stops on

Heritage Singers, Audience Response Improper For Cliurch

Pastor Gordon Bieiz. however. 

"I have not called them and sail 
"Don't come back,' but I decided no 
to ask them to come back," Bietz said. 

"I enjoy the Heritage Singers.' 

Ihe church it made me uncomfortable Report 
and one of the most significant things ter sail 
in making me uncomfortable was au- doing :

in response to Ihe music.

Church Crowd Creates 
Disruptive Response 

Something for everyone. Thai's the way the Heritage 
Singers picsenled their most recent concen in the Col- 
legedale Church. But not everyone was pleased, and for 
the second time in several years, the Collegedale Church 
board decided not to ask the Heritage Singers to sing the 
church again. 

People's tastes will always differ, and it is not always 
possible to say whether a certain type of music is right or 
wrong. However, the whistles, screams and cheers that 
came from the audience in reaction to the final song were 
out of place in the house of God. And the audience's wav- 
ing at and reaching out to touch the Heritage Singers 
seemed to hold a hint of praise to the singers rather than 
praise to the one the songs were about. Perhaps a perform- 
ance that brings such a reaction from the audience does not 
belong in die church, but instead in a secular auditorium. 

The Heritage Singers were invited to sing in die Col- 
legedale Church although an earlier performance of theirs 
prompted church administrators to decide not to invite 
them back. After this decision, they sang in the gymna- 
sium. It is unfommate that their most recent perfomiance 
in the church caused the pasloial staff to "ban" diem from 
the church once again. 

It is good dial the Heritage Singers are trying to reach 
everyone. It is good diat dieir ministry focuses especially 
on young people. However, a performance that incites 
such excitement has no place in a church. We would like 
to see the Heritage Singers return to Collegedale but either 
the audience and the place of performance would have to 
be changed to suit the music or the audience and the music 
would have to be changed to suit die church. 

Spiritual Thought 

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the 
Lord widi gladness: come before his presence with sing- 
ing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he dial hadi 
made us, and not we ourselves; we arc his people, and the 
sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with dianksgiv- 
ing, and into his courts with praise: be thankful imto him. 
and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy en- 
durcth to all generadons.

When Making New Year's Resolutions

"What is this?!" I ex-

down to breakfast during a 
weekend leave last semester. 

"What is wha ... oh, 
that It's just my grades for the 
classes I have taken so far this 
year. I must have accidentally 
left it on the table," replied 
mom in an overly casual way. 

I had found the grade

eggs and and buttered toast.

Southern Expects 1300 Students As Registration Rebounds

I remarkable aspects of 

Monday's registration according to 

Mary Elam, Southern College's direc- 

jr of records.

ation showed a 
in SC's projected 
988 enrollment as 
rompaied to second semester of 1987. 
■The final enrollment figure last 
,ear was 1.246. We expect to have 
ipproximaiely 1,300 as a final figure 
I for this semester," Miss Elam said, 
Je're pleased." 

The estimated figure of 1,300 
15 derived by taking Monday's final 
' registration count of 1,043 and adding 
late registrants, student inissionaries 
and other expected additions, accord- 
ing to Miss Elam. 

The Full Time Equivalency 
boasted 75 more students than last 
year, also, 67 students are projected to 
e enrolled in the Orlando, Ea., nurs- 
ing program. 

Each semester is usually com- 
1 with the same semester of the 
ous year because of the usual 
I drop-off of students between the first

the music itself was too boisterous for 
the church he added, "When you in- 
vite the Heritage Smgers, I think you 
know what you get," 

Bietz said major reasons for his 
personal dissatisfaction with the per- 
formance resulted from its technical 
aspects as well as its content. The pub- 
lic address system was not equalized 
and the words were not clear, he said, 
adding that it was "weak from a musi- 
cal standpoint." He also felt the con- 
cert was performance- oriented. 

'The simple fact that it was per- 
formance-oriented is not the problem, 
but the music was not in the Adventist 
tradition," he said. "A performer cer- 
tainly wants to have audience re- 
sponse and be able to feel that re- 
sponse. I don't know if the audience 
response egged them [the Heritage 
Singers) on." 

Lucy Mace of Placerville, 
Calif, wife of Heritage Singers' 
Founder Max Mace, said the church's 
staff response was

"In Collegedale ! think we get

she said. "I think they mean well but 

According lo Mrs. Mace, vigor- 

"When they first started applaud- 
ing it really bothered me," Mrs. Mace 
said in reference lo the Heritage Sing- 
ers' early tours. "I didn't want people 
to tiiink we were taking glory away 
from the Lord." 

She explained that the tour's 
title, "No Compromise," refers to the 
singers' religious message - no com- 
promising about witnessing. 

"That's our main ministry - [wit- 
nessing to] young people and to those 
who have been in the church and left 
it," she said. "Our main goal is lo 
reach the young people and let them 
know Christians don't just sit around 

According lo Mrs. Mace, the 
Heritage Singers get two or three 
negative letters or responses to their 
performances and 200 lo 300 positive 
letters and responses per montii. 

The Collegedale Church has 
been on the negative side of those re- 
sponses twice. Bietz explained that the 
Heritage Singers performed in the 
years ago and 

h staff d 

to sing in the church again. They per- 
formed in the gymnasium 
times in the interim. Then the pastoral 
staff reversed its first decision by in- 

its previous policy. 

■There's Christian music I listen 

sure I would want thai group playing 
in the church for a worship experi- 

though he stressed that different 
people respond to different types of 
worship programs, he added, "I do 

velop a consensus about what kind of 
a spiritual experience is best for us." 

Mrs. Mace said she felt the Heri- 
tage Singers' music was appropriate in 
a church, although she said they al- 
tered their choice of songs to suit dif- 
ferent worship services. 

"For me the Lord says 'Make a 

tambourine is not quiet," she said. 
"After all, what more should you be 
excited about than the Lord?" 

According to Bob Martin, a stu- 
dent who attended the performance, 
the Heritage Singers' concert message 
was a "blessing" - but their concert lo- 
cation may not have been appropriate, 

"T think ii was a good concert

Whether skiing in St. Moritz, 
Switzerland: Vail. Colorado, or Mt. 
Cook. New Zealand, to skiers around 
the world, Warren Miller is recog-

Grounds Department, 
You're Looking Good 

As students of Southern College, how many of us re- 
ally look around and notice some of Ihe new things being 
done to beautify this campus. Grounds depanment is con- 
stantly working to improve the looks of ihe campus every 
■ day by mowing the grass, pulling weeds in the flower 
beds, sweeping the sidewalks, planting new trees and 

Grounds deparlmeni, under the supervision of Charles 
Laccy. has done a tremendous job in keeping up the land- 
scaping of this campus. The plants around the newly fin- 
ished sidewalk are an example of Lacey's planning. He 
conceived the idea of the sidewalk six years before any- 

The promenade has taken some time to finish but before 
the 10 inches of snow fell it looked pretty good even 
though the plastic creek is sort of tacky. 

Another nice grounds improvement is the fence by the 
men's stairs. For a long time, thai piece of din and grass 
was a nasty Hail. Now, grounds put a fence up so students 
would walk around and they seeded it with grass . 

The only complain! that students might against grounds 
is why didn'i they clear the sidewalks sooner. Many stu- 
dents have slipped and fallen on the Thathccr staus as well 
as many other places. And trying to walk to church in street 
shoes is like ice skating with roller skates. Grounds should 
have cleared the walkways before Sabbath. 

Grounds has really done a great job and diey need to be 
thanked for that. Next time it snow though,k mabey they 
can do a belter Job of clearing the sidewalks. 

Spiritual Thought 

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price 
is far above rubies. The heart of her husband 
doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have 
no need of spoil. She will do him good and not 
evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, 
and flax, and worketh willingly with her 
hands. She is like the merchants' ships; she 
bringeth her food from afar. Favor is deceit- 
ful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that 
feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. 

Proverbs 31:10-14, 30

Dear Editor: 

Two dim 68-watt light 
bulbs shown out through a 
dreary light fixture illuminating 
a room filled with half un- 
packed boxes and suitcases. 
Exhausied from a long trip, 1 
switched off the light and slid 
inio bed. Thoughts of what my 
first college registration would 
bring filled by mind as it drifted 
off toward dreamland. 

However, sleepy eyes and 
a tired body could not compete 
with the growing rumble of a 
Forest Lake reunion that was 
beginning next door. The 
night's passing hours brought 
many stories of fun in the 
Florida sun, but very liitle sleep 
as voices and laughter drifted 
freely through ihe paper-thin 
walls. Images of a clock- radio 
displaying 2:30 or 3:30 am and 
salutations of "Goodnight, 
Mike" and "Sec you tomorrow, 
guys" were the last fading 

There are three very im- 
portant points to consider when 
in missionary work. First, Ihe 

The conservatives, in the case 
of WSMC, are not Ihe ones in 
need of ministry. That is why 
WSMC chooses to play a clas- 
sical format even on the Sab- 
bath. Although i( may offend 
die-hard Advendsts, they are 
not the ones we are aiming to 
reach. Secondly, we must also 
realize that our minisUy should 

ess. It must be something that 
is always there, or people will 
be turned off by its inconsis- 
tency. WSMC consistently 
stays with a classical formal so 
listeners don'i pass die dial 
when they hear gospel music. 
The last and most important 
point is thai the gospel must be 
tied to an item of worth to the 
people 10 be reached. WSMC 
aims at reaching Ihe "thought 
leaders" of our community with 
something diey enjoy - classi- 
cal music. 

Let us now take a look ai 
specific incident and see if

earlier. Several months a

that they had received a greater F

College Board Approves Three Master's Programs 

By Janet L. Conley 

Southern College may offer uni- 
versity level classes as soon as the fall 
of 1989 if it implements ils proposed 
masters degree programs for account- 
ing, education and journalism. 

masters programs for about six 
months and the board approved the 
idea in mid-December. 

"They (the administration] took 
ihe plans for the masters programs in 
journalism, business and education to 
the December 16 board meeting and 
oard quickly approved the proc- 
develop those programs." Dr. 
I Bill Oliphant, chairman of the depan- 
nt of journalism and 

seeking accreditation from the South- 
Association' of Colleges and 
Schools, an accrediting organization 
for this region. 

To implement the masters pro- 
grams, all three departments will need 
expanded class offerings, funding and 
probably additional faculty. 

Although their needs may be 
similar, Iheir reasons for starling the 
programs vary. 

Business Administration Depart- 
ment Chairman Dr. Wayne Vandevere 
said changes in the requirements for 

will change after 1992. 

■To sit for the CPA exam you'll 
have to have five years of education," 

Dr. Gerald Calvin 
is chairman of the 
education depart- 

and accoimting theory. 

Vandevere said the department 
had had preliminary discussions about 
class offerings but had not made fmal 
decisions yet. 

"One of our biggest hurdles 
would be to find the staff." he said, 
adding the department would need "at 
least one, maybe two" more faculty 

Although the program would be 
targeted primarily at SC students, 
Vandevere said. "If people in Ihe area 
want to take advantage of it, fine." 

Local professionals may find the 
department of journalism and 
communication's proposed masters 
program enticing, according to Chair- 
man Oliphant. 

"We anticipate that we will draw 
quite a few people from the Chat- 
tanooga area that are media profes- 
sionals." Oliphant said. "The closest 
college or university offering a mas- 
ters in journalism is in Knoxville." 

Oliphant submitted a proposal 
about developing a school of journal- 
ism and a masters program to the col- 
lege in October. The proposal outlines 
the department's goat; to make SC 
"the recognized center of journalism 

Seventh-day Adventist 

lie relations. 

"We plan to start a development 
program for the journalism depanmeni 
and our goal is to raise Si million for 
the support of the program," Oliphant 

He cited Cecil Coffey, board 
member and owner of the Washington 
state-based Coffey Communications 
Inc., as a major departmental sup- 
porter. The college's Journalism Pro- 
fessional Advisory board has also 
pledged its support. 

Oliphant anticipates using the 
funds as an endowment to generate in- 
terest, as scholarship funds and to up- 
grade library holdings - which may 
cost S20,000 initially, 

Oliphant would like to add at 
least two more full-time facul^ and 
also hire local professionals as con- 
Education Department Chairman 
Dr. Gerald Colvin said his 
department's plans for a masters hinge 
on a decision dirrenlly in process by 
the state of Teruiessee which would 
require a fifth year consisting of an in- 
ternship and close educational super- 

"If a student might [need to] in- 
vest that lime, the President (Donald 
Sahly] felt we might start a maste 
program," Colvin said. 

Colvin added that the depanme

cunently provides an extended mas- 
ters program for Loma Linda Univer- 
sity and funding allocated for that 
could help defray the expense of start- 
ing SC's own program. 

"There's an added expense of a 

to undertake that," he said, citing the 
salary for a needed extra teacher as 

He estimated the program might 
cost S20,000 - $30,000 a year. 

"The money is in a sense already 
being expended." he said, explaining 
that the college pays LLU $17,000 - 
$20,000 for its three month summer 
graduate program here. 

A major factor in the decision of 
what classes to offer also depends 
upon a state decision. Colvin said

Santa, Helpers Give Books To 237 Needy Children 

By Kevin Gepford 

What would a liKle kid these days do with a 
book for Christmas? Not much, you say. Well, 
that's the wrong answer. Somewhere over on the 
other side of the Chattahoochee River this Decem- 
ber, 237 children were being read to sleep for the 
first lime in a long, long while. 

Thanks to a Southern Santa (Bob Huntress) 
and his 12 collegiate elves, ail the naughty and nice 
little girls and boys at the G. Russel Brown Elemen- 
laiy School, grades K-6, had a special Christmas af- 
ter ail. There's no telling what the holiday would 
have been like otherwise, but clues were found in 
some of the secrets they told Santa Claus. One girl 
asked him for a present for her mother, whom she 
might go to live with next week, if the judge said so. 
Another little boy told Santa that he had just visited 
his dad in jail; the boy then slaned wondering with 
his friends whether the jail had a phone or noL 

This is the second generation of pre-schoolers 
being laughl by Belte Hum at Brown Elementary. 
She has been there for 20 yeare. Many of the chil- 
dren who grew up on those streets never left; they 
often become parents by the time they are 15 or 16 
and their children return to the same classrooms. 

The students receive two meals each day at 
school. Once or twice a year they all go out sHopi- 

Thc idea of getting involved with these kids 
occurred to Andrea Nicholson, freshman accounting 
major, while she was visiting a Spalding Sabbath 
School class in November. As an appeal was being 
made for someone to sponsor a needy family for 
Christmas, she saw a chance for SC students to do 
something significanL She called Ms. Hunt and to- 
gether they decided that books would be the most 
meaningful gifts for these kids. During a special 
fund-raising campaign, SC students gave more than

My First Rapelling Experience At Fall Creek Falls Resort 

stop and I open 
the door, get out and stretch. The 
hour-and-a-haif drive to Fall Creek 
Falls Slate Park, about three hours 
north west of CoUegedale, is long 
enough to be uncomfortable. Walk- 

Nearing the end of the trail, we ap- 
proach a swinging bridge that spans a 
deep canyon. We play games on the 
bridge as we cross, making it fly firom 
left to right, high above polished gran- 
ite slabs which hold a creek. Mirror- 
like puddles Of water, memories of a 
recent rain storm, reflect our antics as 
we cross. After crossing, we follow 
the trail which lakes us into the depths 
of the canyon. 

Hiking for about ten minutes, we 
emerge from the woods onto the creek 
bank. Straight ahead the 200-fooi 
falls of Chattanooga Shale confront 
us. Loblolly pines, scattered on the 
crest of the rocks reaching skyward, 
create a dark green wall against the 
blue sky. We decide to climb 100 feet 
up through the woods to investigate a 
rock ledge protruding from the rock 

After reaching the outcropping. 
we lie on our stomachs and scoot 
close to the edge, closer than we might 
go if we were standing up. As I peer 
over the edge, my stomach tightens, 
sending shivers through my body. I 
am lying on a rock looking 200 feet 
down to the valley floor. 1 wiggle back 
from the edge and wonder if I have 
enough inner strength to let my body 

makes a zipping noise as it races to- 
ward the bottom. Once again I slide 
my body toward the edge and look 
down, checking to see if the rope has 
stretched to the bonom. I ease myself I 
up, not wanting to slip, and take a blue [ 
and gray harness out of the bag. Aft 
stepping into the harness. I slide tl 
strap through the buckle, pulling ii 

tight a 

trunk, grasp the green cloth strap of 
my equipment bag and lift it out of the 
car. After closing the trunk, my 
friends and 1 begin to follovh' a trail

shoulder pushes me off balance, al-

one-half-inch in diameter. 

After some encouragement from 
Dany, Rick and Mackie, I open my 
army-green equipment bag and reach 
for my 165-fooi Edilrid climbing rope. 
After unraveling the rope, I grasp it 
about three feet from the end and tie 
the first half of a figure eight knot. 
Taking the end around the base of a 
nearby pine tree I follow the knot 
through completing the figure eight,

the coolness of the metal pressed I 
against my damp palm magnifies Ihc

My heart rate is rising. 

Now, I make a loop in

Fulbrighfs Pre-Season Prophecies 

By Mike Fulbrighl 

It's thai lime of year again when you can waik 
into Ihc Soulhem College gym and find as many 
various kinds skill levels as you can basketball 
shoes. But the fact of the matter is . . . basketball is 
back. To kick the year off in sports we're going to 
take an inside look at the best of the boys in South- 
em College basketball, the league we peons in "A" 
and "B" league reverently call "Double A". 

Steve Vogel, Mark McKenzic, Rob Bovell, 
and Mike Hershberger are captains of the four teams 
seeking to be the best of the best Sony guys, when 
it's all said and done only one team is going to have 
the right to say "We're #1". i know, 1 know, you're 
curious as to who I think the best will be. right? 
Glad you asked, let's take a look. 

#4) Hershberger - Willett: Hey. 
these guys have a lot of talent. 
What I really question here is the 
front line. No doubt Greg 
Willett is a seasoned veteran 
with plenty of experience, but af- 


in "Double 

Whether or not Grisso will have to carry the load 
underneath by himself will be the deciding factor for 
these two SVA alumni, Robinson and Johnson are 
hoping for the best, it's my guess that Vogel is too. 

j^^^^^^H fine ball players. Once again, 
Bovell however, our attention turns to 

the from court. Engle will hold his own to say the 
least, but what about Robin Davis and Burke 
Siefko? Davis's gift of height could give him the 
ability to be the best center in the league. Stefko, a 
6'3" freshman forward from Orlando, Fla.. also will 
be a pivotal factor t

it forward he just might come up on 
the short end of the stub, know what I mean? How- 
ever, at season's end Osborne will probably surprise 
us all and leave us asking. "Where was this kid last 

Finally, let's talk team chemistry. In my opin- 
ion, which is the only opinion that counts in this col- 
umn, Hershberger will find it hard lo Tmd a chemi- 
cal balance with this team. This will be their great- 
est downfall in a season that promises to be an up- 
hill battle for a talent-laden team. 

#3) Vogel - Grisso: TTiis was a 
tough choice. Steve Vogel 
could just about cany this team 
by himself if he wanted lo. 
Vogei's fate, however, lies

Eric Robinson, also is equipped with the talent that 
would enable Vogel to have one of the best front 

Over all, these guys look strong. It should be 
an enjoyable season for Bovell, unless he encounters 
late season fatigue - he's near retirement age. you 

f#l) McKenzie - Wheeler: The 
starting five looks extremely 
solid. Bobby Forquer is the 
newcomer to the league and 
should do a fairly good job on 
the boards. Across the front line 
these guys are the most talented 
in the league. Mark McKenzie 
McKenzie and Tim Chism are two sea- 
soned veterans, at least in years of experience. Dave 
Nemess is one the best shooting guards in the 
league. Hey, it almost looks as if they have no 
weaknesses. I wouldn't go that far, though. This is 
a young team. Three of the starting five are sopho- 
mores. But if anyone will be able to effectively har- 
ness the raw youth and talent of this team, Maynard 
Wheeler will. He's one of the most level-headed 
point guards in the game today, or at least in Col- 
legedale. -Have you noticed, however, that Maynard 
is sporting a new hairdo? I'm trying to remember 
the last time I saw a good point guard with a curly. 
We'll give Maynard a 3.5 for the perm, but we'll 
give McKenzie a 9.5 for a well-picked team. 

Well, that's that. By now most of the Southern 
College sports world probably strongly disagrees 
with me. No biggie, I got you to read the anicle.

aren't you? Instead, I've decided to give a few help- 
ful hints to average basketball fans so that they can 
come out and enjoy themselves a lillle bit more. 
Here are a few tips: 

Check team rosters: Look over the list of 
teams and find your favorite player or players, 
Guys, this goes for you as well as for girls. Ladies' 
basketball here at Soulhem is alive and well. Usu- 
ally the more fans you have, the more exciting the 
game. So pick a team and be a groupie. 

Bring Pom-Poms: It's easy. Jusl go to your 
local K-Mart and buy some HQ (high quality) Pom- 
Poms - one in red and one in white. Nobody ever 
plays in any other color, so you'll always be pre- 
pared. Bring both to the game and then let your 
neighbor borrow the color you're not using. You 
know. "I have two pom- poms and you have none/ 
I'll share my pom-pom. . ." anyway you know what 

Make up team chants: Hey, this is a real popu- 
lar activity. These are inspiring verses of poeffy that 
fans make up to encourage their team on to victory. 
For example: 

Fulbright. Fulbright, 

He's our man. 

He's got a super build 

And a real nice tan! 
Thai's quite a popular one so you won't want to use 
it too much, otherwise you might get criticized for 
being unoriginal. 

Seriously folks, players appreciate a little fan 
participation. So if you're sitting in your room a 
in the afternoon and you're trying to put off that ac- 
counting assignment or English essay, cruj 
over to the Stephen Jaecks Spons Complex and en- 
joy a liiUe amateur college basketball with your 
friends. You might have some fun.

mented regularly, programs such as 
these will cater lo the many spiritual 
needs of our students. Students will 
receive the gospel al the level they can 
relate [o because it is shown in a me- 
dium they appreciate. The answer to 
the previous question, therefore, is 
yes. Yes, these programs fit the mold, 
and it is these programs that we need 
to uplift the spiritual atmosphere of 
Uiis campus. 

What all diese points boil down

programming is implemented, it will 
always be looked on favorably by one 
group and unfavorably by another. For 
example, conservatism is a turn- off 
for some and a turn-on for others. 
Some develop a hardness for religion 
when they see it depicted in that way, 
while others appreciate its outlook. I 
am not advocating an all-liberal plan, 
but I am saying that we need a bal- 
ance. We need the best of both styles.

I start with the Republican 
party because it commands the loyalty 
of a substantial majority of Adventists. 
This preference has roots far back in 

our church's history. The ant i -slavery

them to the party of Lincoln in the era 
during and after the Civil War. The

Students Are Tired 
Of Waiting In Lines 

I'm sure all of us have wondered and wailed in the 
long cafeteria lines. Sometimes, it takes 10 or 15 
of waiting in line to get your food. Why are the 
long and what could be done to make these lines 
during the lunch rush hour? 

One reason that could be attributed to the lor 
lines is not allowing students to receive their 25 pe 
students don't have any pocket money, they can 
Taco Bell or Pizza Hut. On campus during lunch, 
duiis only have two choices of where to eat. If the 
stration would allow the students their 25 percent, the 
lunch lines might be lessened. 

Lunch is not the only time the lines are long in the 
cafeteria, though. During the dinner

eating the food. One plausible explanation could be the 
number of serving stations open in the food area of the

Campus Kitchen's hours. This has been a problem from 
the beginning of the year. If the CK were open when it 
used to be, the lines in the cafeteria would not be as long. 

The new year must have created many New Year's 
resolutions to eat breakfast before class, and the lines at 
breakfast are growing. Only one station usually is open 
during the peak of breakfast and students have to wait 
longer to get their food and then cat like pigs to make it to 

Something should be done to help lessen the time 
students wait in cafeteria lines. More food stations, open

While it is evident that no 
one can tell what the future 
holds, it is time that we as stu- 
dents look ahead to see what 
each candidate would do with 
(or to) our great nation. 

While I was growing up 1 
was always hearing two - might 
we say. misconceptions - about 
Adventists which usually ag- 
gravated me. The first of these 
misconceptions, or at least gen- 
eralizations, was Adventists 
can't manage money. Now 
honestly, I'm not making that 
up. In fact, I expect you've 
probably heard that one too. 
You probably were sitting in 
the living room on a Sunday af- 

when all of a sudden he starts 
talking about how an Adventist 
corporation went into Chapter 
Seven. According to him, it 
was because "Pastors can't 
manage money." 

"Eiidiculous!" you cx- 

"And another thing," he 
says, drawing in the second 
misconception, "Adventists are 
usually so ... so ... so politi-

this has been the straw that has

The previously generic Southern

William Hulsey, Collegedale Case- 
works president, is ihe new Commit- 
tee of 100 leader. 

The Committee of 100, which 
was founded in 1963, has undertaken 
numerous projects over the years in- 
cluding the recently completed Upper 
Campus Promenade and, presently, 
renovation of Lynn Wood Hall - all at 
no expense lo SC or its students. 

Gymnasium construction was the 
first project and the

The Commii 
physical education didn't stop with 
construction of ihe gymnasium. In 
1978 the track behind the gym was 
specially resurfaced (523.000). One 
year later, in 1979, tiiree new racket- 
ball courts were constructed 
(584,000). The new gym foyer was 
completed in 1980 (572,000), again at 
no cost to the college. 

The gymnasium now consists of 
classrooms, offices, two locker rooms, 
Uiree basketball and four racketbaU 
courts, a handball court and an olym- 
pic-sized swimming pool, A seating 
capacity of 2J00 makes the building

President Donald Sahly echoed 
this theme. "The physical [side of

"We are approaching, and may be

The Testing and Counseling 
Center will soon be providing tutors 
for the student body, according to 
K.R. Davis, head of the Department. 

Ever since the Teaching Learn- 
ing Center closed last year, students 
have been without special assistance 

"Since the Federal Goverrunenl 
has wididrawn funding for the Teach- 
ing Learning Center, we're going to 
provide tutors here at the Testing and 
Counseling Center," Davis said. 

The tutors will be provided by 
the various departments to help stu- 
dents during school hours and a few 
evening hours as well. 

Presentiy, the Testing and Coun- 
seling Center provides students with 
numerous testing services. The 

LSAT. American College test, the 
Strong Campbell Interest lest (for un- 
decided majors), CLEP tests, and the 

SIGGY personality test, which is ideal 
for potential marriage partners to find 
out their comp atability.

For the past year, Davis may 
have had more than his share of re-

took on temporarily due to a shortage

While attending a librarian's 
convention, she found a solution. To 
help hold down the cost of taxes, 
many publishers donate massive quan- 
tities of books to the Adventist Disas- 
ter Relief Agency. The agency in turn 
distributes these books throughout the 
Adventist network. Southern College 
librarians traveled, paying their own 
way. up to the ADRA headquarters in 
Washington D.C. There they found a 
huge warehouse filled with books. 
Their only task was to nmmiage 
through and find what they wanted. 
The only cost the library ineuned? 

The ADRA book-obtaining ex- 
pedition led to yet another minimum- 
cost expansion program. About a year 
ago, Mrs. Bennett learned about a di- 
vision of the Library of Congress 
called Gifts and Exchange. This is the 
place publishers send books to receive 
a copyright.

Before Mrs. Bennett went to 
Washington, D.C, she contacted a 
Tennessee senator, who issued a 
franking label which means no post- 
age is required on the books being

SC isn't die only institution to 
benefit from this system. Mrs. Ben- 
nett has also taken opportunity to 
achieve good public relations within 
the Chattanooga area by selecting sev- 
eral boxes of novels from the Library 
of Congress which she gave to the 
public libraries and some of the 
smaller colleges in this area.

There's no doubt about it, these guys in

But the fact is, this kind of intensity has been 
demonstrated in all four leagues. On opening

and ended up in the 80s. 

Just one night later a "Double A" game 
went into ovenime and was won by only five 
points. Three other A league games were won 
by less than three points. The B league and 
women's games have been a little more lop- 
sided but the desire to win is obvious nonelhe-

Despite this burning desire to win by most 
players, the sportsmanship level this year is 
also exceedingly high.

it is holding inie to form. A big thanks to the 
Southern roundball players and fans for getting 
this season off on the right foot 

A League 

Fulbright vs. Begley: In the A league opener, 
stunned favored Fulbright in an 87-84 upset. Eric Hope'^iej I 
Begley's team with 29 points. Fifteen of those points wer 
scored from the three point line. Ben Moreland added 1 
and Scott Adams conliibuled 13 in Begley's winning effon 
John Machado led all scorers for Fulbright with 28 points 
but it wasn't enough to push Fulbright over victory hilL 
Both teams have a week off before resuming play. 
Pope vs. Kroeger: Kioeger edged out Pope -by five points 
the evening of Jan. 14 in both teams' season opener. Matt 
Kroeger led all scorers with 23 points and Todd Lawrence 
added 15. Many critics saw this as an upset as Kroeger was 
not picked to finish above .500 this season. Tim Morrison 
tossed in 18 points including three three-pointers in Pope's 
losing effon. Jay IDedeker added 12 but Pope came up short 
in their quest to start the season off on a victory note. 
Rouse vs. Ekliind: Rouse slid by Eklund Wednesday nighi 
72-69 as Randy himself launched a first half three point as- 
sault that culminated in 15 poinK. He finished the game 
with 33 points and almost single-handedly spoiled Eklund's 
season opener. Eklund's team scoring however, was more 
evenly distributed. Lambeth, Green, Teat and Eklund were 
all in double figures. Both Green and Eklund scored 19 | 
points. Eklund, however, will probably have to get 
fensive production from their center, Rob Dickinson, if they | 
wish to be dominant in upcoming games. 
Thuesdee vs. Pope: John Jenkins put forth a fantastic effon ' 
Jan. 14 scoring 28 points, including five three-poiniers as 
Thuesdee squeaked by Pope 56-55. Surprisingly enough, no 
one else on Randy's team was in double figures. Even 
rocket- launching Steve Jaecks had a hard time finding the 
basket as he ended the game with only five points. Jeff Pope 
led his team with 1 8 and Tim Morrison added another 1 5 but 
it wasn't quite enough to pull off an upset victory for a team 
that seeks its first win. 
B League 

Banfe vs. Montalvo: Montalvo trounced Banfe Jan. 12, 
scoring 50- 34 in the B league opener. Ayala led 
Montalvo's team in scoring with 16 points. Davis also 
added 15. Reggie Morton was also in double figures with 10 
points. It was not all bad news for Banfe however, as Adam 
Lindow, a treshman from Highland View Academy, led all 
scores with 22 points. It was an outstanding effort Ihai 
caught at least one A league captain's attention. Even 
Lindow's effort was not enough to propel Banfe lo vicioiy 
on opening night. Just to show you the importance of Lin- 
dow to his team, no other player on Banfe's team scored 
more dian two points. Hey guys. I think Adam needs a little 

Keppler vs. Johnson; Chris Miller fired in 29 points the eve- 
ning of Jan. 13 and came only two points short of outscoring 
Johnson's team by himself as Keppler smashed Johnson 44- 
31. It seems as though Johnson had trouble getting the of- 
fense going as no one on his team could score in double lig- 
ures, John Malone came as close as possible with a nine 
point effort. No one else scored over six points. 
Montalvo vs. Keppler: Chris Miller is averaging 27.5 points 
a game and he poured in 26 Jan. 14 as the Theologian from

Korff Verses Personal Feelings About 
His Senior Year, Southerns Changes 

1. What I have learned as 

2. A strong feeling about 
something; or 

3. How Southern has 
changed since I came; or 

4. What being a senior 

5. Anything I would like 
the student body to know. 

Instead of addressing just 
one of these ideas, I have de- 
cided to at least give lip service 

1. What I have learned as 

The most important les- 
sons I have learned are that few 
things are as they seem: All 

Murphy was 100 percent cor- 
rect when he said that "If any- 
thing can go wrong it will." 

I was quite surprised at 
America when I arrived here 
more than four years ago. 
There were a lot of things I 
didn't expect to see: dirt, scrap 
yards, confusion, potholes, dis- 
respect for elders and superiors. 
waste, inefficiency and the list 

mines how things are. or how 

2. A strong feeling about 

I have a strong feeling 
about punctuality. I believe 
that if something is scheduled 
to begin at a certain lime, it had 
better begin at thai time. Fur- 
thermore I believe that if some- 
one wants credit for having 
been there {e.g. dorm worship, 
chapel, prayer meeting, ves- 
pers, etc.) they had better be in 
the right place by the time 
things begin, and not in class, 
or on the way from class be- 
cause the teacher kept them 
late, or anywhere else. You get 
worship credit for being in 
worship, not for trying to make 
it to worship on lime. A certain 
amount of allowable skips are 
built into the program, and if 
someone has to be late, they 
may just as well take a skip. 

I also have strong feelings 
about correct spelling and use 
of words (their/there; two/too/ 
to; etc.) especially in public 
places like the Accent, Chatter. 
Scanvertiser. bulletin boards, 
etc. One club on campus once

Dear Editor 

A clarification of para- 
graph four in Janet Conley's 
excellent story about College 
Board approval of the three 
Master's Degree programs, 
January 14, 1988 issue of the 

The college is planning to 
consult with officials of the 
Southern Association of Col- 
leges and Schools regarding the 
three graduate programs being 

planned. It is not "seeking ac- 
creditation" from the Associa- 
tion, as stated in the story. 

Southern College is, and 
has been for many years, ac- 
credited by the Southern Asso- 
ciation of Colleges and 
Schools. At the appropriate 
stage in the development of our 
Journalism program, we intend 
to seek accreditation from the 
Accreditation Council on Edu- 

have forced the administration 
to re-evaluate programs and re- 
trench some staff. Of course 
we do have some new staff on 
campus, and new students each 
year are an inevitable and re- 
freshing change. 

Brock Hall has been occu- 
pied, Jones Hall has been torn 
down, Lyrm Wood Hall is being

We also have a new telephone 
system which allows us to 
make outside calls from the pri- 
vacy and convenience of our

get a line!

"real worid." It means finding 
a job, moving away from home,

means a whole lot more respon- 
sibility and a bit of apprehen- 
sion and fear of the unknown. 
It also means realizing in a con- 
crete way one's responsibility 
to himself and to his world. 

5. What I would like the 
student body to know:

as his strong feelings that Russia and

student Senators 
Vote To Repeal 
Three-Person Ticket 

The Sludent Association Senate voted to r 
an amendment lo the elections manual whic 
quired that three people run together 

J of SA President, Executive Vice-Presi- 
dent, and Vice-President for Social Activities. 

The repeal was approved unanimously at the 
seventh regular SA Senate meeting on Monday, 
January 25. 

The chief reason for the change is because there 
are several really outstanding students who want to 
run for SA offices who have been imable lo as- 
semble satisfactory tickets. 

"This change allows these individuals to com- 
pete for office," said SA President Renou Korfl". 
"The change does not mean that candidates carmot 
campaign together, it means rather, that the three lop 
SA executive officers will be elected individually. 

At the same meeting the senate voted to sus- 
pend publication of the supplementary JOKER until 
outstanding advertising revenue has been collected. 
However, funding was offered for ihe publication of 
the second semester Numerique. 

The Numerique costs relatively little and is re- 
quired by the SA Constitution. TTie supplementary 
JOKER is not required by the constitution and fur- 
ther spending would place the JOKER budget in 
greater deficit. 

SC Women To Play All-Star Game 

Saturday nights have come and gone and I 
often heard various students complain about the li 
of quality entertainment here on weekends. 

Well, I 

. Sat" 

urday 8 pm the best of the ladies in Southern Col- 
lege basketball will square off in the annual All-Smr 
Game to be played in the Southern College Physical 
Education Center. 

If games past have any reflection on what this 
one will be like you can almost count on a nail- 
biting fight to the finish, (What I mean is that fans 
will be biting their own nails and not that of the 
players, because they will be biting their own nails.) 

Folks, in all seriousness, there are some high 
quality ladies' basketball players on this campus and 
if you'd really like lo enjoy yourself Saturday night, 
voii need to make your way to the PE Center to take 
this game in. The roster for Saturday night's big 
matchup arc as follows: 

Joi Richards 
Teresa Rogers 
DyerRonda Green 
Sandra Hall 
Dee Frett 
Jennifer Casavant 
Jill Penrod 
Kim Robertson 
Coach: Randy Thusdee 

Gail Gibbons 
Lori Peters 
Sheri Green 
Sheni Hall 

Michelle Fulbrighl 
In grid Eklund 
Jondra Grier 
loach: Mark McKenzic 
As you've noticed we've also got quite the 
coaching matchup. Both men are in their first year 
as head coaches and ihey promise lo be two of the 
best the school has ever seen. Frankly, I think 
they're the only two the school has ever seen. 

If you're looking for players lo watch, check 
out the first three on each roster. The success of 
their team will depend a great deal on the type of 
ball game these ladies will have. What's that? You 
want my prediction? I thought you'd probably ask.

Southern Basketball: 

Fulbright Summarizes Tlie Games 



Rob Bovell showed no signs of early retire- 
meni Sunday nighl as he took mailers inlo his own 
hands and literally single-handedly knocked off 
Hershberger 90-82. The veteran from New York 

percent from the field and finished the game with a 
whopping 54 points. But if that isn't enough to 
leave your mouth gaping open, listen to this: Bovell 
was perfect from the free throw line, hilling 17 of 17 
charity shots. Folks, basketball can't be played any 
better than this. What can I say, Rob? Do you mind 
if I borrow your shoes? 


Hey kids, this was the upset of the week. The 
last two nights have been a showcase of the best two 
players in the school. Steve Vogel led his team with 
47 points as Vogel and a little volunteer help 
knocked off number one ranked McKenzie 83-82. 
Vogel was 17 of 31 from the floor and II of 12 
from the line in a brilliant effort that culminated in 
his biggest win of the season. He basically did the 
job by himself. Mark McKenzie and Maynard 
Wheeler had 28 and 22 points respectively in the 
losing effort However, I'm not backing down, 
McKenzie is still my pick to win it all. 


Rhett Ekiund squeaked by Begley January 18, 
83-81 in a game that should have required both 
teams to wear helmets and shoulder pads. There 
were a total of 35 fouls in the game. Eric Hope, 
who continues to scorch the net firom the perimeter, 
led his team with 27 points. Ben Moreland added 
16. But it wasn't enough to stop a fantastic effort by 
the All-Southern guard Jack Greene. Jack poured in 
31 points and almost single-handedly shattered 
Begley's dreams for an undefeated season. P.J. 
Lambeth added 17 in Bklund's winning effort. 
Ekiund left the game early with a twisted ankle. 

The Taco Bell Classic. Jonathan Danese fired 
in 18 points and Eric Hope added an extra 16 as 
Begley nan-owly slid by Thuesdee 64-63. Begley 
blew a 20 point half-time lead and then watched 
Steve Jaecks, who had 25 points a second half, in a 
comeback that put Thuesdee up by a point with only 
seven seconds remaining. Jaecks had just hit two 
clutch free throws with seven seconds left on the 
clock. Bui Begley was not to be denied. After the 
two free throws the ball was inbounded, quickly 
rushed downcourt and promptly passed to Ben 
Moreland. With two seconds on the clock Moreland 
fired up a 15-fooi jumper that got nothing but net. 
The basket cost Thuesdee a victory and even more 
importantly a trip to Taco Bell. Steve Jaeck's sec- 
ond half 19 point effort was not enough to secure a 
Burrito Supreme. Sony Coach. Skip supper before 
the next game. 



This one was close for three-quarters of the 
game but eventually Rouse took matters inlo his 
own hands and put Pope away 64-51. Rondy once 
again led his team in scoring with 19 and Todd Hunt 
generously added 16. Jay Dedeker had 15 points in 
Pope's losing effort that saw only five of his players 
put the ball in the basket, period. Reggie Pulliam 
and Jeff Pope had II and 12 points respectively. 
The absence of Scott Kinsey because of music prac- 
tice, was, indeed, a detrimental factor contributing 
to Pope's lack of success. 


Hey. Randy is a good friend of mine. Let's 
just say that the Refs fell asleep and we cheated and 
won this game by a slim margin. You owe me one, 


I thought this would be a good game and I 
wasn't disappointed. Begley fought back from a 
seven point deficit and Angel Echemendia hit key 
shots down the stretch to lead Begley past Rouse 62- 
56. Scon Adams and Greg Covrig didn't bother to 
show up and Scott Begley re-injured a bad ankle, 
but not even that could keep these guys from vic- 
tory. Eric Hope had IS and Ben Moreland, the "car- 
diac kid," added 16 in Begley's winning venture. 
Todd Hunt had a fine outing, scoring 21 points in a 
losing proposition. His captain, Randy Rouse, 
added 18. 



This one's simple to call. Pablo Ayala had the 
game of his life scoring 34 points to lead Montalvo 
to a 82-59 stomp over Juhl. Davis, who would not 
be overshadowed, added another 23 points. This is, 
by far, the highest score in B league this year, at 
least so far. Davis and Golightly had 24 and 20 re- 
spectively in Juhl's losing effort. Only two other 
players managed to even put the ball in the basket. 
It showed, and Juhl came up 23 points short. 


Chris Miller continued his 
league basketball on Jan. 19. as he led Keppler to a 
46-44 victory over a determined Banfc team. Miller 

on the team would up in double figures. Chris had 
22. Jim Sanderson and Chris Grissom had 16 and 
14 respectively in Banfe's losing effort, but it just 
wasn't enough. Maybe if they could get more of an 
offensive effort out of this guy they call "The Pipe" 
they might win a game.

I promised Dean Kinsey and Dean Hobbs that I 
would give them a good write up on this game, so 
here it goes. Johnson almost blew an early lead bui 
hung on to win 47-45. Al Rhodes had eight second- 
half points in an effort to lead Juhl back into the vic- 
tory column but it wasn't enough. Dean Hobbs had 
a game high 17 points and Steve Johnson and Dean 
Kinsey had 14 and 10 respectively. Steve hit key 
free throws in the closing minutes to seal die victory 
for his team. He was the Caffree Cola Player of the 
game. Chris Gloudman led Juhl's team with 16 


Dee Frett had a career high 20 points on Jan. 
19 and Gail Gibbons added 16 as Gibbons slid past 
Hall 46-44. Lori Peters had 19 points and Sheiri 
Hall added 12 but it wasn't quite enough to put them 
over the top. By the way, tiiis is one of those lop- 
sided girls' games I wrote about in the last issue. 
Quite a point spread huh? C'mon ladies, can't you 
appreciate a little sarcasm? 


Gail and the girls found themselves down 204 
before Gail went on a scoring spree that culminated 
in 31 points. She was also three-four from the line. 
Gibbons was able to tie the game at 38-38 but as is 
the case with most comebacks they lacked the intes- 
tinal fortitude to finish the job. Rogers then reeled 
off eight points and won by a substantial margin 46- 
39. Teresa Rogers had 18 points and led her team to 
yet another victory in a season where they are yet to 
suffer a loss. "JD" and Sheri Green were also in 


Gail and die girls tried the same strategy in this 
game as they did against Rogers. This time, how- 
ever, they came out on the winning side 47-38. Gib- 
bons found themselves down again early in the 
game 18-4 but managed to make a successful come- 
back. Once again. Gail took things into her own 
hands and led her team widi 29 points. Dee Frett 
added 12. Joi Richards had 18 points in a losing ef- 
fon. Rumor has it Gail is being recruited of 
"Double A" ball. 


Widi under two minutes left in the game Joi 
Richards and Ingrid Ekiund hit two key baskets lo 
bring their team to a 51-50 advantage after trailing 
by three points. But it was far from over. Ekiund 
then promptly fouled DyerRonda Green for no rea- 
son at all, sending her to the free throw Ime for a 
loud situation. She missed the free dirow but re- 
bounded her own shot. Then, thinking HER team 
was ahead dribbled the ball until time ran out. As 
the score indicates, die rest is history. Green ledji 
I points and if it v 

Dl stopped as he s 


they would

complaining, however, she led her

Library's Computer Catalog System Frustrates Students 

By Kevin Gqifont 

Although the library computer 
system that has frustrated Southern 
College students for nearly a year is 
receiving attenUon, library officials 
say it is not likely to improve signifi- 
cantly before the end of the semester. 

The Sydney computer catalog 
system has received poor ratings by 
nearly all who use it. Students criU- 
cize its cryptic format and lethargic 
response speed; library personnel cite 
'ts incompatibility with 

At the time of purchase, the 
Sydney program had recently been 
adapted for use on micro-computers 
after years of success on mainframes, 
and, in addition to maintaining the 
card catalog, could be set up for auto- 
mated circulation (that means the 
computer will tell you when a book is 
checked out), and for ordering and 
keeping record of periodicals. 

But according to Peg Bennett, li- 
brary director, the software is full of 

bugs. The j 

tested in libraries with less than 
40,000 tides when it was sold to the 
McKee Library as capable of handling 
up to 200.000 titles; the 80.000 vo- 

lumes in the McKee Library seem lo 
be beyond its optimum capacity. 

Additionally, the program format 
is more suitable for the library skills 
of graduate students than for college 

SC had previously been con- 
nected to the SOLINET library net- 
work in Atlanta, whose records of 
McKee books on its mainframe were 
accessed via long distance wire con- 
nected to terminals in the SC library. 
This service was discontinued by the 

due to cost factors, and the McKee 
Library staff was forced to do some 
quick research to find a replacement 


From researching consul 
ports and interviewing library person- 
nel where the system had been 
stalled, the McKee Library staff 
lecied the Sydney software on the 
sis that it offered the best value for the 
least cost, compared lo the two or 
three competing systems then avail- 
able. Aiacost of about S16.000, the 
system was considered by far the best 
value available among the two of three 
options at the time of purchase. 

The Sydney system is installed 
on an IBM/AT compatible computer 
with a 350 megabyte hard disk ca- 
pable of handling up to 200.000 titles. 

Editorial - 

Controversial Issues 
Should Be Researched 

"Jusl [he facts, ma'am." 

Those fearless gumshoe detectives of the most recent 
E)ragnet fame believed in getting jusi the facts; in essence 
deeming all extenuating circumstances insignificanL 

A "just the facts" approach tnay work well for Dan 
Ackroyd, Tom Hanks and America's funnybone. but it's 
not so effective in real life. 

The fact is, there's often more to the facts than just 
the facts. In other words, interpretation, timeliness and 
context play a large role in determining how mere facts 
differ from truth. And sometimes they do. 

When ingesting information, it's usually best to obey 
the old adage, "Don't believe everything you hear." If you 
do believe everything you hear, you will not only get a 
sensory overload based on twice-told tales of the National 
Enquirer's front page stories, you will also find yourself 
wallowing in a mire of false information. 

If you are in the habit of believing everything you 
hear, events on our campus are conspiring to offer you the 
opponunity to make a big mistake. 

This opponunity involves Dr. Helmut Ott's new 
book, "Perfect in Christ," and an anonymously written 
pamphlet entitled "Salvation in Sin." The Review and 
Herald Publishing Association published "Perfect in 
Christ" and distributed it nationwide. "Salvation in Sin" 
was distributed and mailed throughout the south, and even 
slipped under doors in the dormitories here. 

The bare facts of the matter are this: Ou's book deals 
with the degree of perfection man must attain to be saved 
and how he should go about reaching this stage; the pam- 
phlet details what its author feels aie the misconceptions 
and heresies implied in Ott's work. 

But if you believe all you hear, you'll make a big 
mistake. In this instance, the big mistake has nothing to do 
with who is right and who is wrong. It involves checking 
the facts presented in both works and verifying them with 
Ellen G. White's writings and the Bible, It involves taking 
quoUtions in both works and looking at them in contexL It 
involves researching the source of the information. 

This advice is true not only in this instance, it's true in 
all aspects of theology and in your daily life 

The Qualities Of A Good Candidate: 
White Discusses Dole's Eligibility

Being the Senate majority

knows the ropes of effective 
politicking. He can work with 
both the Senate and the House, 
and this is essential to a Presi-

importance and the main under- 
lying reason why Adventists 
tend to be Republican. Bob 
Dole has a very conservative 
record. He led the tax reform 
fight which established the two- 
bracket system and prevented 
tax escalation. 

He also fought a bitter 
fight last March against the 
highway bill. The Republicans 
initially had proposed the high- 
way bill (which included rais- 
ing the speed limit from 55 to 
65) but the EJemocratic liberals 
in the Senate tacked on literally 
billions of dollars for unneces- 
sary road repairs, etc., thus 
circumventing opposition from 
the Republicans. These are 
only a few of the reasons why 
you should vote for Bob Dole.

CARE Retreats To Cohutta 

By KeviD Gepford 

The weekend of January 29 and 
30 was little different from the usual 
at Southern College except that the 
sun was a little warmer and the air 
perhaps a bit clearer. 

But for the 85 SC students who 
spent the weekend away from campus, 
the day and a half was filled with a 
special meaning. These were the stu- 
dents who chose to attend the CARE 
retreat at Cohutta Springs Youth

New Robot To Help Teach Technology Students 

By David Hamilton 

A robot has moved into the tech- 
nology department. 

However, the robot cannot walk, 
talk, give the time of day or sweep the 
floor. Why would the technology de- 
partment invest $15,000 worth of 
equipment in an apparently useless 
piece of machinery? 

"The robot will teach our stu- 
dents how to program any robot to 
maneuver in routine or hazardous situ- 
ations," says John Durichek, chairman 
of the technology depaitmcnL 

Durichek came up with the idea 
to buy the robot during a robotics 
seminar in Washington, D.C.. last falL 
'Oie money to purchase the equipment 
was raised by selling obsolete, surplus 
machinery from the machine shop. 

The stationary -arm robot is com- 
posed of an arm, dexterous fingers and 
a rotating wrist. It lives in a work cell 
where it shares space and works with 
a lathe and mill. The robot can then 
load and unload the metal lathe and 
mill during it simulation exercises. 

make a metal chess piece, you would 
command the robot through a com- 
puter to insert a piece of metal into the

piece of metal. Next, the robot would

General hopes to begin the testing

Ott Defends Book Against Anonymous Charges Of Heresy 



Controversy erupted within 
months of the publication of Dr. 
Helmut Ott's book, "Perfect in 
ChrisL" The Review and Herald Rub- 
in September and by Christmas an 
anonymous writer was distributing 
pamphlets disputing Ott's position on 
perfection, obedience and salvation. 

The pamphleis. tilled "Salvation 
In Sin," list Aliamont. Tenn.. as their 
address but offer no further identify- 
ing information. They have been 
mailed throughout the south and dis- 
tributed in some southern churches. 

The pamphlet writer alleges thai

guages department at Southern Col-

Review's judgment in publishing the 
book and claims there is heresy in the 

religion department at SC. 

viewed Ott recently to get his perspec- 
tive on the message of his book and on 
the allegations made by the author of 
the "Salvation In Sin" pamphlets. Be- 
cause these questions require 
extensive answers or lengthy quota- 
tions, Ott was given the opportunity to 
respond to them in writing.

Ott: One reason was because of the 
tremendous significance Ellen White 
attributes to ihe intercession of Christ 
on man's behalf. She says it "is as es- 
sential to the plan of salvation as was 
His death on the cross," (page 12) Yet

This is pan of what he wrote: 
"Both the Review and Herald Publish-

have started putting this item in the 
front of our books. It does not imply 
any dissatisfaction on our part with the 
content of the books. The inclusion of 
the statement has come about because 
of the financial costs in readying a 
book manuscript for publication." 
Accent: The first page of the pamphlet 
says: "Helmut Ott . . . says that he val- 
ues the work of Christ in the heavenly 
Sanctuary, but he has no particular 
idea [of] what Christ might be doing 
there. He well knows that there is no 
need for a heavenly Sanctuary minis- 
try if Christ completed th

Christian experience 
subject of my book. 

You just cannot read very far 
into my book without realizing that in 
my understanding everything in our 
relationship to God is dependent on 
the mediation of Christ - without Ihe 
imputed righteousness of Christ noth- 
ing we are or do has value with Gad. 
That is precisely the reason Ellen 
While considers Christ's mediation on 
our behalf to be so important. 

Notice this statement based on 
some quoUtions from her writings: 
"Because ~our natures are fallen' and 
"we are sinful, unholy,' even the good 
works we perform bear the incrimina- 
tory marks of our personal sinfulness. 
Our worship and praise, our obedience 
and service and our character develop- 
ment and behavior modification are all 
the works of sinful beings, and nothing 
sinful beings render to God is accept- 
able on lis awn merits. It Is only when 
we avail ourselves of Christ's media- 
tion on our behalf, and He purifies and 
perfects all through the Imputation of 
His merits, that our offering has access 
to Ihe Father." (p. 65) 
Accent: The author of the pamphlet 
claims that you deal only with Ihe 
believer's initial conversion and not 
with sanctification. Is that an accurate 

Oil: No, it is noL Let me quote just 
one statement I feel gives a good idea 
of what I say in the book, "Sanctifica- 
tion as a process of change, growth, 
and maturation, is a genuine reality in 
the believer's experience. As he ad- 
vances in the Christian walk, the dis- 
ciple of Christ does indeed overcome 
sinful tendencies, attitudes, and dispo- 
sitions . . . Increasingly he reflects the 
righteous virtues of Christ's holy char- 
acter in his personal life." (p. 24) 
Accent: Another allegation is that you 
"ridicule" Ihe idea that "God wants 
anyone to even try to work toward" the 
attainment of "moral perfection of 
character!" Would you comment on 

Ott: I'll quote the summary on charac- 
ter development I make toward the end 
of my book. Commenting on some 
E.G. White quotations, I say: "these 
passages bring together the three most 
significant elements concerning the is- 
development: 1) The 

progress onward and upward 
throughout his life. 3) When that is the 
believer's deliberate objective - when 
he does what God knows is reasonable 
to expect of him - then Jesus accepts 
his disposition and efforts and makes 
up for his deficiencies. As a result, the 
believer is accepted as being righteous 
in Christ, by faith, in spite of the fact 
that he is still imperfect and unworthy 
in himself, by nature." (p. 198) 
Accent: Another thing the pamphlet 
claims is that you see "the garment of 
Christ's righteousness ... as some- 
thing to cover over our cherished sins - 
and nothing more." (p. 1) Is that really 
what you say in the book? 
Ott: In the book I say, "The fact that 
Christ's mediation completes and per- 
fects the partial compliance and imper- 
fect efforts of the believer does not do 
away with the necessity of obedience, 
however. Jesus does not make con- 
scious transgression and deliberate dis- 
obedience acceptable to God - only 
forgiveness, through repentance and 
confession can remedy that Instead, it 
is the believer's true attempts to live a 
life worthy of God's adopted children 
in "Christ (Eph. 4: Iff; 5:8ff) that the 
Saviour's righteousness cleanses of sin 
and makes perfect in the Father's sight 
. . ." (p. 47) 

Accent: The pamphlet repeatedly sug- 
gests that you don't believe obedience 
to the law is necessary. On the fu^i 
page the author states: "Helmut On is 
leaching Seventh-day Adve 



toward which we must strive - is 
Christlikeness. It includes everything 
good and pure and loving. 2) The 
believer's duty is to strive, to press on, 
to aim for the attainment of the goal of 
character perfecaon. to experience 

the Ten Commandments." On page 
three he adds: "To attempt to obey, Ott 
will repeatedly explain later in his 
book, is sure road to hellfire. Not to 
obey is the only safe path to salvation 
and eternal life in heaven with the sin- 
less Mgels." How do you view that in- 
terpretation of what you say in your 

Ott: It is absolutely not accurate. My 
basic premise in chapter two is that we 
depend on Christ's mediation on our 
behalf precisely because Gad requires 
flawless obedience of His children. 
Commenting on Matt 5:17, I specifi- 
cally say that Jesus "did not come to 
free us of the responsibility to live 
mor^ly right, or lo abolish the prin- 
ciples that govern God's creaaon so 
that we may please our sinful natures 
at will." (p. 52) 

I certainly believe Uiat obeai- 
ence to the gospel is necessary to sal- 
vation. The gospel basically requires 
repentance and faith. Through repen- 
tance we indicate that we recognize the 
inadequacy of what we a 

Dave and what we do to bring our- 
selves inio favor with God; through 
faith we give evidence that we rely on 
Christ's substitutionaiy righteousness 

gospel of our Lord Jesus" "will be 
punished with everiasting destruction 
and shut out from the presence of the 
Lord." (2 Thess. 1 :8. 9) So in order to 
have a bearing on our salvation, our 
obedience cannot be limited to the law 
but must include the gospel as well. 

According to scripture, we may 
be "faultless" according to the law 
(Phil. 3:6). but if we do not become 
obedient to the gospel, we will have no 
access to grace and hence no hope of 
salvation. And "without this faith-par- 
licipaiion in the redemptive work of 
Christ, no amount of law-keeping will

Accent: This pamphlet has aheady cir-

and it portrays you as a "false shep- 
herd" claiming that "Those who accept 
his teachings stand in great danger of 
ultimately being consigned to the 
flames of hell." How do you fee! 
about that? 

Olt: First, I am really concerned about 
people who, like the author of this 
pamphlet, talk about obedience to the 
law and yet engage in activities that 
are obvious and blatant violations of 
the commandment that forbids to "bear

four players end up in double figures. Steve Jaecks led Thuesdee's team with 
19 points and John Jenkins and Ira Mills added 16 and 15 respectively. Even 
iron-man Todd Wilkens broke the double figure barrier with a solid 10 poinl 
effon. Dan Johnson had an outstanding evening with 20 points but il was in 
vain as Kroeger came up 6 points short. 

Kroeger vs. Ekiund 

Kroeger turned the tables two nights later and put on their own version of 
a balanced scoring attack and knocked off favored Ekiund 62-52. Hey folks. 
this was a total team effort. Every starter was in double figures and not one 
player scored over 14 points bul they won by 10. Now that's spreading the 
glory around. Todd Lawrence led the team with 14 points and Danny Hernan- 
dez added 13. The fad remains, however, that Jack Green is going to have lo 
get some offensive help or Ekiund's woes will continue. Jack had a soiled 20 
points bul only one other player. P.J. Lambeth, ended up In double figures. 
Rhen is still suffering, however, fi-om a twisted ankle thai he suffered early in 
the season. That hurts, in more than one way. 

Thuesdee vs. Rouse 

Stever Jaecks. Victor Lawhom, and John Jenkins combined for a total of 
68 points on Jan. 28 to lead Randy Thuesdee's team by Randy Rouse 79-78. 
In an offensive shooi-out diat saw five players score over 20 points, Thuesdee 
was able to hang on for their 3rd victory. Randy Rouse and Todd Hunt had 27 
and 22 points respectively in the losing effort but it just wasn't enough lo 
overcome the blazing guns of Jenkins, Jaecks. and Lawhom. 

Fulbright vs. Pope 

Tim Morrison engineered a slow-down offense that nearly succeeded in 
knocking off Fulbright Jan. 28. But the ever- present John Machado came lo 
life in the second half (after picnicking in the first half) with 12 points to lead 
Fulbright to a victory in one of the more helter-skelter A League games of the 
year. Jay Dedeker had an outstanding game with 16 points as he consistently 
weaved through Fulbright's defence for layup after layup. But ii wasn't quite 
enough as Fulbright eventually won the game by 10, 59-49.

Jim Sanderson had 16 points on Jan. 25 and Shawn Collins added an 
extra 1 1 as Banfe knocked off Montalvo 59-5 1 . Free Uirow shooting seemed 
10 make a difference in this one as Montalvo out- fouled Banfe 21-10. Banfe 
had 9 points in free-lhrow shooting alone which was one poinl more than what 
Montalvo lost the game by. Jerome Davis had 19 points in the losing effort of 
a foul- played team that was beaten from the free-throw line. Banfe. however, 
only shot 45% from the chari^ line. I guess 45% is a C+ in Inlennediate 
Accounting though, isn't it? 

Johnson vs. Montalvo 

Johnson put four players in double figures on Jan. 27 and handed Mon- 
talvo their second consecutive loss. Steve Johnson had a game high 16 points 
and John Malone and Dean Hobbs each added 15 and 14 respectively as 
Johnson nailed down their second consecutive win. Jerome Davis once again 
led Montalvo's leam with 16 points but ii was far from enough lo make up the

Wow Effective Is The Library's

"I used it once last semester and it seemed pretty slow. It 
wasn't very effective, but that may just have been because 
of my computer illiteracy." 

It is accessed by library users through 
three terminals near the circulation 
desk on the main floor. The hardware 
cost about $71,000, according lo He- 
len DuTichek, assistant vice president 
for fmance. 

Aldiough the hardware is quite 
capable of meeting SC demands, ihe 
program has not delivered the benefits 
expected when it was boughL After a 
year of constant haranguing with the 
software company, flying in techni- 
cians from from New Jersey, and ex- 
tended phone calls on Sydney's lotl- 
free number, the library personnel are 

near the point of exasperation. 

On two occasions, according lo 
Loranne Grace, director of technical 
services, Sydney workers have inti- 
mated that their system will not work 
in SC's situation. 

Mrs. Bennett feels that if things 
don't get better, she may look into re- 
placing die system this summer and

One year ago, Mark Linke, a stu- 
dent with goals in the field of physical 
therapy, developed a potentially fatal 
condition called Guillain-Barre-Strohl 
syndrome, fli is pronounced Gay-yon- 
bar- ray-stroll syndrome) 

"I got up out of bed 10 turn the 
heater up because I was cold, and 
When 1 got there, my legs buckled un-

tenoTBied rapidly. He could not use

Sunday night. Not having any idea as 
to what Linke's problem was. doctors 
took nearly one week in diagnosing 
the syndrome at Erlanger Hospital. 

When Linke got to Erlanger, his 
temperature was 104 degrees. "The 
last thing 1 remember was being 
packed in ice. It was terrible," he

Black History Week 

Cultures Must Unify 

■Black History Week ofTicially began Monday, bring- 
ing with ii a series of special worships, films, chapel talks 
and musical programs celebraiing 

Throughout the nation, citizens observe Febniaiy as 
Black History Month, praising and remembering the gifts 
great blacks like poet Phyllis Wheatley. ronner Jesse 
Owens, preacher/crusader Martin Luther King Jr.. and in- 
ventor George Washington Carver gave to our nation. 

Black History Month is also when many remember 
slavery and the underground railroads of the 1860s, the 
segregated trains and lunch counters of the 1950s and the 
desegregated busing and anti- discriminatory employment 
issues of the 1980s. 

Black History Week on our campus is a time of re- 
membering the past Remembrance emphasizes the cul- 
tural, societal and perceptual differences between races. It 
fforts of these different peoples to 
a semblance of unity while still preserving their 
n and heritage. 

"United We Stand ■ Divided We Fall," this week's 
theme, clearly states an ideological principle. 

But Black History Week alone is not enough to ac- 
complish this principle of unity. Black History Week often 
inspires less-ihan- idealistic responses on campus. Il can 
accentuate the borders between "us" and "them," focusing 
on the differences between skin colors rather than the dif- 
ferences between races and peoples. 

All of life can't be as integrated as a Benetton adver- 
tisement or a "We Are The World" video, but perhaps a 
more diverse look at the histories of all of SC's students 
would help promote this week's them of unity. 

Events like the International Club's food fair the stu- 
dent missionaries' call book fair do thaL Perhaps the cam- 
pus could sponsor other cultural events, like Oriental His- 
tory Week, European History Week, Spanish History 
Week, etc. 

Black History Week is a good idea and a good base 
to build on, but in reality, no one can be classified within 
only the limiting border of color. Mere black and white do 
not present the whole spectrum. 

After all, as the saying goes, "Some of my best friends 
are Jamaican and American Indian and Scandinavian and 
Korean and African and Russian and British . . ."

Dear Editor 

As an avid follower of 
politics, 1 was very interested in 
Woody White's article on Bob 

{The Qualities of a Good Can- 
didate: White Discusses Dole's 
Eligibili^). 1 understand and 
agree with most of Mr. While's 
article: Dole is in my lop two 
choices for president at this 
time. I feel that there are two 
sides to tiie facts in this article. 

The fact dial Bob Dole is 
a war hero I do not dispute, but 
Geoi^e Bush was also a war 
hero. He received the Navy's 
distinguished Flying Cross 
while flying in a bomber in the 
Pacific; he was even shot down 
in enemy territory and was 
barely rescued by a US subma- 
rine. I think tiiat this reflects 
special courage on the Vice 
President's part, but still many 
Americans view George Bush 


Doonesbury has the last several 

mented tiiat Congress is 
"Democratically liberal." This 
fact is to a very large extent 

guilty of spending money too 
freely, as evidenced by the 
S600 billion spending bill tiiat 

Congress passed in December. 
For instance. Silvio Conte of 
Massachusetts, the ranking Re- 
publican on the House Appro- 
priations Conmiittee, pushed a 
$60,000 grant for a Belgian 
Endive Research Center at the 
University of Massachusetts at 
AmhersL This grant's purpose? 
To improve gourmet salads. 
Now I know that this pales in 
comparison to the S8 million 
grant tiiat Democratic Senator 
Daniel Inouye of Hawaii sup- 
ported in order to build a lan- 
guage school for Nortii African 
Jewish refugees in France, but I 
do not want my taxes being 
taken for either projeet 

As to Senator Dole's op- 
position to the highway bill be- 
cause of the Democrats' adding 
"literally bUlions of dollars for 
unnecessary road repairs, etc." 
onto tiie bill, one only has to 
drive on 1-75 past Shallowford 

definitely need work. Some- 
times I drive for five rrtinuies 
out of my way in order to avoid 
tiie tiiump, tiiump, tiiump of 

(COLAS) for Social Security, 
veterans' benefits and military 
pay. This bill was defeated 
when Ronald Reagan joined 
wiUi House Speaker Tip O'Neil 
(a Democrat) t 


t Dole ; 

r feel that there is also an 
important fact about Senator 
Dole that Mr. White neglected 
in his article. Bob Dole has a 
pet project which he first at- 
tempted to make into law in 
1985. this bill involved a freeze 
on cost of living adjustments 

that this is a good plan which 
he wtil reintroduce if he is 
elected presidenL Personally. I 
think tiiat tiiis plan would be a 
disaster for many Americans 
whose sole support consists of 
these programs which all of us 
pay for in income taxes. 

Bob Dole's experience in 
Congress will certainly be an 
asset in dealing with Congress. 
I believe that he would make a 
fairly good president. In look- 
ing at all of tiie candidates' rec- ■ 
ords. though, I am stiU hoping 
tiiat a more moderate candidate 
like New Jersey Senator Bill 
Bradley, or Georgia Senator 
Sam Nunn enters the race, 
though tiiey are botii Demo- 
crats, I believe tiie view oi 
America and certainly Advent- 
ists is better expressed by these 

I hope tiial many of the stu- 
dents are examining tiie candi- 
dates and will be prepared v> 
make an educated vote on 
March 8. We should not -

"I had vowed off weeks of

cause they take a lot of the spiritual 
energy I ne«d for my work, but I 
talked to my son and we decided to 
collaborate on the project. 

"We both have a burden to bring 
the God out of the abstract." he con- 
tinued. "The theme "Who Goes 
There" was wound around illustrations 
of God's character drawn from bibli- 
cal and practical sources. God is not a 
harsh God. and there is so much to 

Halversons' preaching style definitely

Not everyone agreed with the 
Halversons' message, however. Fol- 
lowing the Wednesday evening meet-

60 or 70 participants, an SC theology 
student challenged Halverson Sr. on 
his portrayal of the nature of God. Al- 
though Herman, and Halverson him- 
self, downplayed its significance, 
news of the incident rapidly became 
conunon knowledge on campus. 

Later, Halverson said that he and 
the young man met to discuss their 
differences and that the altercation 
was due primarily to a misunderstand-

his meetings. During the Agape Feast

Kroecer vs. Rouse , - . - 

Randy Rouse, A league's leading scorer, continued his offensive domi- 
nation of the league Jan. 13 by firing in 29 points to lead his team to a decisive 
85-56 vicioiy over Kroeger. Mike Thompson also had a career high 18 points 
and John Gay added 14 in a rather lopsided victory. Todd Uwrence had aii 
outstanding effort with 22 points although it was in vain. By the way. Th- 
ompson previously had only been averaging 7.0 points a game. Is the young 
rookie actually going to come out of his shell? 

Fiilbrighl vs. Thuesdee _ ^ 

In a glme that was close until half-lime, Fulbright finally pulled away 
late in the second half and managed to pull out a win from a stubborn Thues- 
dee team Ihai wouldn't give up. John Machado. A league's second leadmg 
scorer led all players with 27 points and Bob Martin added 24 as Fulbright

a game thai promises to be much closer. 

Be^ey vs. Pope 

Eric Hope and company made their own rtin at a 100 point game the 
night of Jan 9, but came up eight points shy as Begtey pounded Pope 92-71 . 
Scotty Adams had a season high 24 points and Ben Moreland added another 
19 in Begley-s win. Jeff Pope fired in 30 points but couldn't get much help 
from the r«st of his crew as the Pope pany had yet another disappointing end- 
ing in a season where there haven't been many moves in the win column. 
They will have another shot at this same team on tonight. Good luck. guys. I 
wouldn't mind seeing another Begley loss. "Know what I mean, Vem?"

Montalvo vs. Keppler 

In what I would call an upsei victory Montalvo knocked off Keppler 48- 
46. Hey Folks, they don't come any more exciting than this. Pablo Ayala had 

the hot hand once again with 22 points and Davis added 13 to pace Montalvo

Usually the number 13 is denoted 
as unlucky. This was not the case, 
however, Saturday night as Lori Peters 
poured in 17 points and led her team to 
victory while wearing the unlucky 
number 13. 

Yes. ladies. I was at this game 
and 1 watched it in its entirety and re- 
ally enjoyed myself. It was good bas- 
ketball. Early on, it looked like it was 
going to be a blowout as Sherry Green 
got off to a hot Stan and Sum Remons 
and company led by as many as 16 at 

But Randy's Rowdies were not to 
be denied and they came storming 
back, tying the game early in the sec- 
ond half DyerRonda Green and Joi 
Richards were instrumental in keying 
the comeback. But once again it 
seemed as though the rally zapped 
Randy's crew of all their energy and 
Lori Peters almost single- handedly put 
the game out of reach. 

Lori's team leadership and level- 
headed style of play were showcased 
perfectly in Saturday night's game. 

She has been named the Soulhem 
s Most Valuable Player for the 

AU-Star Classic. 

Even though Gail (

the night with 12 points and 
was a key factor that weighed heavily 
in her team's success. The fact is. Gail 
could score 20 on any given night if she 
pleased. But her conservative style of 
play continues to impr«s me. She still 
should shoot more, however. 

Randy's Rowdies, a team loaded 
with talent, stniggled most of the night 
to find the right chemistry. With play- 
ers the likes of Joi Richards. Dyer-

During the development of this 
new idea, this reporter found two 
homes for neglected teenagers that 
were in need of tutors. After a few 
weeks of planning, three groups of SC 
students were ready to start tutoring. 

That was four months ago. The 
groups are still actively involved, 
thanks to the enthusiastic participation 

of about 25 SC smdents and thanks to 
the leadership of several dedicated 
people: Karen Cruicher, Darwin 
Whitman, Michelle Sykes, Jeff Gang, 
Val Long and Kara Ericson. 

Furthermore, Big Brother/Big 
Sister will be starting another reach- 
out project this semester. Story Hour. 
!t will involve going to specific homes 
and/or communities with lots of chil- 
dren and telling them stories, playing 
Bible games and teaching them songs. 
Anybody interested can contact Ihe 
CARE office for more information. 

Big Brother/Big Sister's goal this 
year has been to reach kids outside our 
Advenlist circle. They are still work- 
ing not only on achieving this goal, 
but on a still higher goal - that of 
reaching out to all the world.

Good Sportsmanship 
Creates Great Games 

Picture this: Bobby Knighl. coach of the Indiana 
Hoosiers, standing on the sideline screaming at the official 
and then promptly picking up a chair and hurling it across 
the basketball floor. Now that's my kind of sportsman- 
ship, don't you agree? Bah- Basketball, nothing could be 
farther from the truth. 

Steve Jaeks, Intramuml Director here at Southern 
College, was forced to call a meeting of all intramural 
players in Talge Hall last Monday night at 10:30 p.m. TTie 
issue to be discussed — sportsmanship. Shocked? Well, 
don 'I be. The fact of the matter is, sportsmanship here at 
S.C. was no longer going by its legal first name to "bad." 
In fact, "Bad Sponsmanship" had gotten so far out of hand 
that the P.E. deparlment was threatening to cancel Rees 
Series. Attitudes had deteriorated in all four leages to the 
point where Jaecks and company were ready to throw in 
the towel. And throw in the towel they almost did. But 
Jaecks confronted the athletes of Southern College and 
simply told them that he and Ted Evans were just as ca- 
pable of going to UTC to referee a game as we were of 
going to play for the Mocs. No one could argue. Jaecks 
then proceeded to inform the players that the depailmenl 
did not have money in the budget to hire two outside offi- 
cials to do the Rees Series this year and that if the players 

Ted Evans and himself. Officiating which, by the way, 
was not sufficient for some players earlier this season. 

Well, as you can tell by looking at this issue, the Rees 
Series went on in spectacular fashion. Steve Jaecks called 
the championship game "the best basketball I have seen 
here in all my years." But most importantly the sportsman- 
ship exhibited during the Rees Series was exemplary. Play- 
ers exchanged handshakes after fouls and the referees did 
an outstanding job in a pressure situation. 

So what would you call it? Learning from the past? 
You bet. A problem only remains insurmountable as long 
as those who are affected choose to do nothing. Which is 
exactly what the athletes at Southern College chose NOT to 
do. Like my Dad always says, "One good deed is better 
than a thousand good intentions."

Student Hopefuls Speak During Chapel;" 
Two Candidates Eliminated By Primaries 

By David Hamilton 

Half ihe Student Association 
presidential candidates were elimi- 
nated in Tliursday's primaries. 

Hopefuls Keitli DiDomenico and 
Richard Moody were ousted from the 
running in favor of Mark McFaddin 
and Mark Waldrop. Voting percent- 
ages from the primary are not avail- 
able for publication. 

Two days prior to the election, 
the Student Association held an elec- 
tion speech chapel to let candidates 
talk about their plans and platforms. 

Presidential candidate Mark 
McFaddin opened his speech by say- 
ing he would "get right to the point." 

He said his objectives were to 
"produce a quality product" and to 
keep within the budgeL He plans to 
use communication, cooperation and 
"keeping student's 

He also plans to set up a place- 
it office to help students find jobs

He concluded with a challenge to 

lents to compare a list of what they 

ited in a president to a list of his 

qualifications, and, if tiiey did not 

ich, to choose someone else. 

Competing candidate Mark Wal- 
■ drop told students "I want to talk 
I about you. With me as president, 1 

illing to go the extra mile," he 

"You need a president who ac- 
I cepts you." 

Waldrop told students the SA re- 
'es $60 a year from each student 

and that he would be a president '"who 
can use your money wisely." 

Waldrop concluded his speech 
by saying "I like to get up and make 
things happen." 

Steve Kreitner is the only candi- 
date running for SA Vice President. 
"I don't want you to vote for me be-

Kreitner sa

SA effectiveness, create a heightened 
student awareness, strengthen the 
president and improve student life. 

The two candidates for SA So- 
cial Vice President are Young-Mi 
Kwon and Wendy Odell. 

Miss Kwon said loo many of the 
same things are done year after year. 

"I want to do things differently. 
I think I can do the job." she said. 

Miss Kwon's supporters threw 
candy to the crowd and one even 
roller-bladed in the gym carrying a 
campaign poster. 

"Forget the gimmicks!" Miss 
Kwon said, adding that next year

Gepford says his big push is to 
"put the year back into the yearbook" 
because "in the current system, after 
January no events are recorded. I 
want to change this by using comput- 
ers to make it professional" and faster. 

Waite states that with his "long 
hours in the darkroom" and photogra- 
phy experience, the layout for next 
year's yearbook will "rival the finest 
magazine" and will give a "photo- 
graphic excellence never seen before."

for Joker Editor, said his goals for the

Miss Odell began her speech 
with some questions to the student 
body: "Are you ready for Spring 
Break?- Are you ready for school to be

sponse from the students, she contin- 
ued, "That is how much I want you lo 
be involved next year. I want your 
help, ideas, and suppwrl." 

The two candidates for South- 
ern Memories Editor are Kevin Gep-

through a student survey ihls year

places of interest students enjoy. The 
results will be put in next year's Joker

DiDomenico presented several 
other goals such as obtaining better

What slipped by them was the 
fact that back in 1988, in a small 
American suburb of a suburb, there 
indeed was a power forward at South- 
era College, Ihe school of the guards. 

His name was Mark McKenzie. 

He earned MVP of the Rees Se- 
ries after leading his Sophomore 
squad to an upset victory over the fa- 
vored Seniors and all their guards, 
making amends for a three point loss 
in an identical game the year before. 

In the 1988 championship game, 
floor leader McKenzie poured in 28 
points, snagged 18 rebounds, served 

two assists, blocked one shot and had 
one steal. Thai performance added 
speculation that power forward McK- 
enzie was indeed the best player at the 
small school. 

"People tell me. "Oh, I think 
you're the best player here at the 
school,'" McKenzie said at Ihe time. 
"I won't accept that. Once I start ac-

record in AA league that year, what

Even though McKenzie felt cer- 
tain aspects of his game needed con- 
sistency, growth and strength, many 
screaming SC fans believed at the 
time that this sophomore graduate of 
Cedar Lake Academy had defmitely 

Not since the raw talent of 
alumni Jonathan Turner and the pro- 
gressive toughness of John O'Brien 
had the suburbanites of Collegedale 
seen a power forward be a factor on 
both ends of the court and thus put an 
end to the domination of SC basket- 
ball by players who couldn't dunk -

Underdog Sophomores Sneak By Seniors

Mark McKenzie led the Sopho- 
mores with 28 points Saturday night 
and the underclassmen wenr on to 
knock off the favored Seniors in the 
1988 Recs Series championship game. 

The capacity crowd at the Wil- 
liam lies Field House was treated lo a 
game marked by breathtaking play 
from its opening tip-off. 

This game had everything - fast 
breaks, picturc-perfeci shooting and 
McKenzie even hit a shot from Ihe 
ihree-poini line. That one happens 
about as often as Halley's comet. The 
fact is, Southern College has never 
seen basketball played any better. 

I picked the Seniors to win this 
game. Well, nobody's perfect. 

Mike Hershberger hil the open- 
ing basket only 23 seconds into the 
game and I thought lo myself, "Here 
.we go again." 

1 was surprised. 

Kurt Friedrich got Ihe Sopho- 
mores off on the right foot for the next 
12 minutes. With 15:40 left on the 
clock in the first half. Friedrich had 
eight of the Sophomores' 10 points. 
With 6:57 left in the half he had 
scored four more and was accountable 
for 12 of the Sophomores' 26 points. 
The Seniors, however, were still up by 
two at 28-26. 

Rob Bo veil was resembling that 
magic man from the forum as he 
dished off two dazzling passes lo 
Steve Vogel, with the Seniors seem- 
But something was different. 

I told my assistant Steve "Slap" 
Kreitner before the game that if the 

Sophomores could stop the Senior fast 
break they had a shot at winning Ihe 
game. Well, they didn't slop it but 
they sure slowed it down. 

It seemed as though Sister Fate 
had turned her face away from these 
veterans of roundbail and had fixed 
her gaze on a group of young men thai 

Even star guard Vogel refrained 
from any type of boasting before the 
game. When Kreimer pressed Vogel 
for a pre-game prediction, Ihe tall 
North Carolinian answered, "Steve, 
I'm not going to give you anything. I 
ju,st hope we win." 

Well, Vogel didn't give our pa- 
per any kind of prediction, but he did 
give his team 36 points as well as a 45 
percent shooting night from the floor. 

So why did the Sophomores win 


Maynard Wheeler played in- 
spired basketball from the opening tip- 
off to the final buzzer and his enthusi- 
asm rubbed off on his teammates. 

After two three-point shots by 
Rob Bovell and Steve Vogel. the So- 
phomores found themselves down 38- 
29 with only 2:55 left in the half. 

Then came the luming point. 
Wheeler and Eric Hope hit back to 
back three-pointers and all of a sudden 
a Senior threat was turned away and a 
one-point ball game erupted again 
with 40-39. 

Wheeler then promptly stole a 
pass and convened it into a lay-up and 
the Sophomores took tlie lead 41-40. 

But the Sophomores still weren't 
done. With two seconds left in the 
half, Mark McKenzie threw up a three 
point shot yielding nothing but net and 
the Sophomores headed to the locker 
room with a four point lead 44-40. 

What this all bounces down to. 

folks, is that from 2:55 until the end of 
the half the Sophomores outscored the 
Seniors 15-2. It is amazing what kind 
of a change can take place in a basket- 
ball game in only three minutes. 

Wheeler opened the second half 
with a quick bucket puning the Sopho- 
mores up by sbi. With the Sopho- 
mores looking as though they were 
going to call a run of their ovra, the 
Seniors were forced to call a time out 
with 16:05 left in the half, trailing 52- 

To make things worse, Tim 
Chism decided to play a little basket- 
ball in the second half and before the 
night ended, he dropped in 20 points. 
It is amazing what a little time off will 
do for a ball player. 

Then Vogel took things into his 
own hands and the Seniors grabbed 
the lead for the first time in the half 

8:39 r< 


Both teams traded baskets during 
the remainder of the game until Scotl 
Bcgley fouled Kurt Friedrich, sending 
him to Ihe line with only 1:33 left in 
Ihe game. 

Friedrich hit both charity shots 
and the Sophomores were up 86-83, 

I then watched in awe as the So- 
phomores put on a picture perfect 
four-comer stall resulting in a back- 
door lay-up by Friedrich with 44 sec- 
onds left. The Sophomores never 

Its impossible for me to verbalize 
the intensity and excitement that elec- 
trified the air Saturday night as I sat 
surrounded by screaming fans and 
tried lo lake notes in the midst of mass 
hysteria. I'm just upset this one didn't 
gel televised, know what I mean? 

Seniors Defy Freshmen 
In Thursday's Game 


:e Fulbright 

Mike Hershberger and Steve 
Vogel shot the lights out and Rob 
Bovell engineered a fast break offense 
that hterally ran the Freshmen to death 
Thursday night, eliminating any hopes 
for a Freshmen upset victory with a 
final score of 96-77. 

This game was a showcase of 
two different basketball styles. As a 
matter of fact, you might even com- 
pare this game with a Laker-Celtic 
match-up. The Freshmen, playing a 
Boston Celtic -type half-court offense, 
were no match for the running, gun- 
ning Seniors, who resembled Ihe boys 
in yellow from Inglewood, California. 
The Seniors came out running 
with the opening tip-off and gained 
the early momentum as the Freshmen 
snuggled dcsperaiely from the line, 
missing key free throws early on. 

The Seniors, by contrasl. were 
virtually flawless from the line in Ihe 
opening 10 minutes. 

With 10:10 left in the first half, 
however, the Freshmen found them- 
selves down by only three points. 21- 
18. But Ihai was as close as they 
would get. Ten minutes later Vogel 
stole an inboimd pass and hit the lay- 
up with three seconds left on the clock 
to give the Seniors a 20 point lead at 
the half 56-36. It was never close af- 


"I think it will be a high scoring 
game. Our team has worked together 
before. We're all perimeter shooieis, 
so it should go well." 

Actually, Vogel and the boys 
didn't need the perimeter shooting. 
Hershberger literally outran the Fresh- 
men by himself, scoring 32 points, the 
majority of them coming off fast- 
break opportunities. 

Many of these points were due, 
in part lo Bovell's passing efficiency. 
Bovell was, by the way, the only 
player on opening night to wind up in 
double figures in the assists column 
with 10 to his credit 

Vogel also had a fine outing, 
shooting 71 percent from the floor 
while pouting in 26 points. Vogel was 
also 4/5 from the line. 

The Freshmen did have some 
bright spots on opening night despite 
their 19-point trouncing by the Sen- 
Alex Johnson played the game of 
his life, firing in 28 points and person- 
ally keeping the Seniors from running 
up the score even more with his 16- 

Burke Stcfko also put on a fine 
performance, adding 16 points and 
taking the high percentage shots while

By Steve Krdtner 

In the first half of Thursday 
night's Rees Series doubleheader, the 
Sophomores rebounded from a sloppy 
first half to Uke the lead with 11:15 
left on the clock. Led by a Mark McK- 
enzie !8-point second half perform- 
ance, the Sophomores tightened up 
their game and stole a championship 
game berth from the Junior team who 
couldn't repeat on a strong first half. 

When the first half ended at the 
newly christened lies Physical Educa- 
tion Center, it was this sportswriter's 
first opinion that the Juniors were con- 
trolling not only the defensive boards 
and the game, but the Sophomores as 
well. And they were even doing it 
without irresponsible Big Man Greg 
Grisso. (Mumbling something about 
Little Debbie, Greg was last seen 
around 6:15 pm riding off toward the 
Bakery. Who IS Little Debbie. 

Statistician Scott Green, a reli- 
able source, summed up the game 
situation when he told this sports- 
writer, "Steve, the Sophomores may 
have been owned in the fu^t half, but 

they're only down by five points; A1- 
37. They're still in it." 

With less than two minutes left 
in the first half, the Juiijors led by nine 
points, 42-33. and appeared to be in 
control, but then Sophomore forward 
James Gardner picked off a Dave 
Nemess pass and threw ii down to 
Eric Hope for an easy lay-up. 

Seconds later Junior Nick 
George fouled Maynard Wheeler with 
no time remaining on a half-court des- 
peration shut. Wheeler sunk both free 
throws and the Junior lead was down 
to only five at 42- 37. 

Although this was only a point 
swing of four, it must have lifted the 
Sophomore's morale and provided 
momentum for the second half. This 
appeared to be the case when, only 33 
seconds into the first half, Mark McK- 
enzie put in a fast-break slam-dunk 
closely followed by a Maynard 
Wheeler three- pointer. The Juniors, 
however, continued to play strong un- 
der the basket. Junior center Greg 
Willett pulled in 12 rebounds, while 
forward Joey Osborne snatched 13 re- 
bounds from a taller Sophomore team. 
With about 13 minutes left in the 
game, however, the momentum began 

go the Sophomores' direction. Eric 
Hope, who hit for 11 second-half 
points, and Maynard Wheeler, began 
to connect from the three-point range. 
Also, the Sophomores began to crash 
their offensive boards with Kun Fried- 
rich and McKenzie, who grabbed 10 
and 16 rebounds, respectively. 

With 11:15 left in [he second 
half, the Sophomores took the lead 61- 
59. Only seven minutes later, they 
were leading by 13 points. 80-67. 
When the buzzer sounded, it was the 
Sophomores 91, the Juniors 77, 

For the Juniors, its a question of 
what happened and where they went 
wrong. I[ wasn't in free throws - they 
went from 44 percent in the first half 
10 84 percent in the second. Maybe 
their problem was their offensive pro- 
duction from the floor. They scored 38 
in the opening period, while they man- 
aged just 25 in the second half 

The major contributor to this de- 
crease in output was their shot selec- 
tion. In the first half, the Juniors 
played a calm half-court game and 
worited patiently for an open shot. In 
the second half however, they seemed 
a bit impatient, passing less and put- 
ting up more forced shots. 

I Jumping Juniors Crash Boards, 
I Crush Talented Freshmen 94-62 

On the other side of the court, 
the Sophomores simply played good 

basketball at the end of [he game - 
when it ma[tered. Their free throw 
percentage was an opening-round high 
of 76 with Maynard "Ice Man" 
Wheeler dropping in 11 of 12 free 

The game stats were close with 
the Juniors shooting 36 percent from 
the floor and the Sophomores shooting 
37 percent. The Juniors out-rebounded 
the Sophomores 47-« and dished out 
more assists 17-12. Yet the Sopho- 
mores played clu[ch basketball. 

With these stats being so close, it 
all comes down to a subjective opin- 
ion by this sportswriter as to why the 
Sophomores look the honors. The 
absence of Grisso alone cannot be 
counted since the Sophomores were 
missing power forward Tim Chism. 

If Wheeler had gone to work at 
McKee's like Grisso, the Sophomores 
would have lost the 32 points he 

Yet can we blame Wheeler for 
knowing how to get out of work? No.

So why did the Freshmen lose 
this basketball game? Three reasons; 

1. Inexperience 

2. It's just plain tough to go up

Vogel. These are experienced ball 
players. Some of them arc more than

Dear Editor: 

While reading the editorial in the 
Feb, 4. 1988. issue of the Southern 
Accent, I was appalled. The reason 
was because the quote "just the facts, 
ma'am" from the movie "Dragnet" 
was included in the Southern Accent 
It shocked me that the allusion was 
used at all. I strongly disagree with 
the use of this reference for a number 
of reasons. First, this reference caused 
this article to reveal a lack of audience 
Also, this allusion is con- 
beliefs of the Seventh-day 
as recorded in the writings 
of Ellen G. White. Finally, people 
who read this publication and do not 
know about Seventh-day Adventisls 
might feel that this truly reflects Sev- 
enth-day Adventist beliefs. 

First of all, ll 

f the w 

the audience. In this case, the editor is 
assuming that college-age students as 
well as other readers are familiar with 
this movie title and plot. This edito- 
rial clearly misjudges the audience by 
presuming thai Ihey have seen the 
'Dragnet" or at least have 
about it from the movie reviews 
on television. This obviously leaves 
out a great deal of people on the 
Southern College campus who do noi 
attend movies and diose who do noi 
regularly watch television. 

Secondly, the principles of 
Southern College are based upon bib- 
lical standards which include t 
lief of a prophetess: Ellen G. While. 
She clearly states in her writings that 
theater attendance is wrong bee 
destroys a relationship with Gi 

to die atmosphere inherent in a theater 
situauon and in her book, "The Ad- 
ventist Home," she warns that "Every 
youth who habitually attends such ex- 
hibitions will be corrupted in prin- 
ciple." The mere mention of the dica- 
ter in a Sevendi-day Adventist publi- 

lance to dieater attendance which is 

contrary to Ellen G. White's writings. 

Finally, when we as Seventh-day 

Advendsts publish a paper we should 


: of c 

our Seventh-day / 
need to be awan 
upon these people and constantly 
question how we appear to non Sev- 
enth-day Adventists. An editor of a 
Seventh-day publication who knows 
and reports about a particular movie in 
his paper would suggest lo many 
people that movies are permissible en- 
tertainment and dierefore not harmful 

conceptions of our religion. There- 
fore, sincere thought should be given 
to content. We must continually ask 
ourselves if we are properly represent- 
ing our religion. 

In summary, I strongly object to 
the quote from the movie "Dragnet" 
which was used in the editorial. Its 
presence displayed a lack of aware- 

.sing L 

well as a disregard for the guidanc 
Ellen G. White's council. Finally,

View-Blocking Bushes 
Should Be Removed 

On January 30. 1988. at approximately 6:15 pm, two 
Talge Hall residents had a minor motor vehicle collision in 
one of the Talge Hal! parking lots. Well, you might ask, 
"Who was in the wrong?" The fact is, neither driver was 
doing anything wrong. 

Then what went wrong? A row of bushes seven feet

Dear Editor 

After reading Miss Nancy

the "Mailbag" section of the

to reply. 

First, Miss Mazur has 
taken an insignificant issue and 
has blown it completely out of 
proportion. The saying "Just

continued to give the C's to the 
students who deserved C's, and 
they only gave B's to the stu- 
dents who deserved B's. And is 
was OK becasue that was what 
they had earned. And the C stu- 
dents continued to get C's. 

So the Mass Of Educators 
said, "Study harder next time." 
And Ihey studied harder next 
time, but they found it harder to 
study because they never under- 
stood the homework they'd 
done the last time. And the C

Southern's Sailing Class Off To Muddy Start

"Make sure you can swim . . .

Barrow Jr. warns his students. 

Perhaps "wet but not quite yet" 
should have been the slogan this past 
week as Southern College's sailing 
class got underway. Would-be- sailors 
had to settle for dry land tacking here 
I" Collegedale because of low water

Last Friday, SC's boats were 
ajwui 20 or 30 feet from the water 
J^ugh some mud flats. Barrow said 
he expected water levels to rise suffi- 
^■e-Hy for the class 10 sail this week. 

"^e goal of the class is lo im- 
prove sailing proficiency.

a good place to get students

. . We've taken basic sailors ani 
turned them into proficient single 
handed sailors ready for racing." 

To accomplish this, Barrow be- 
lieves in "hands on" training though 
he usually begins the sailing class with 
a little theory. 

"I try to have one day of theory - 
the first day. rWe| bring a boat in, we 
rig it, we talk about it. [Students] start 
to correspond between what things 
are, how they relate to the boat." Bar- 
row said. 'They actually get in the 
boat and do dry land lacking. They 
get familiar with sitting in there [and] 
going under the boom, back and 

That's the first day. After that 
the fun begins - Chickamauga water

Though sailing is easy (usually it 
takes about five hours on the lake be- 
fore students feel comfortable with the 
boat), Barrow said it remains chal- 

"Under normal sailing conditions 
in a good boat [it will take] about Hve 
hours and you'll be able to gel around 
and enjoy it. Saihng is simple. Sail- 
ing is basic. The boats we have will 
sail faster than Christopher Columbus 
could gel across the ocean ■ even our 
small little boats. [Sailing] is a sport 
thai you can continually grow in. It 
will challenge you forever. 

"If you can sail on Chickamauga

are tight - especially on Sundays when

one that fills quickly at registration

stem, in pan, from an aura of mys- 
tique that some claim surrounds sail-

Laura Lewis, senior public rela-

dents on the calendar mailer, they might have found that 
the sludcnis would rather pay S5 extra per yeaj- to have 
nice color pictures in iheir calendar. 

Dr. William Wohlers, vice president of student serv- 
ices, said the students should like ihe "new look" of the 
"radically different foniiat." How would he'know! Has he 
conducted a random survey of the population at Southern 
College about this radical format? He has talked infor- 
mally to a few students about the calendar change. He has 
not contacted the student leaders though. He could have 
lalked to students in assembly, but he hasn't Has he done 
much of anything lo gel student opinion? 

Apparently not! 

A good way for Student Services to save money is to 
only pay for Ihe calendars used by the registered students 
ai SC and have recruitment pay for the calendars they use 
for public relations. 

If color pictures are too enpensive, why not have 
good quality black and white photographs? The Southern 
Accent and Southern Memories use mostly black and 
white pictures and students enjoy looking at them. 

Having attractive photographs in the calendar is a tra- 
dition we need to keep. The administration's tradition of 
not asking students their opinion, however, is a tradition 
u should be out of the picture.

1 Exam Pass Needed For Future Test Weeks 

By David Hamil ton 

Students may only have to use 
one test pass for all their classes when 

Director of Student Finance Laurel 

"With one pass, students will not 
have to keep track of so many test 
passes," Mrs. Wells said, "but we are 

Some disadvantages do exist. 
Instead of just collecting a pass from 
each student and letting someone else 
worry about whether the pass was the 

student's personal pass, teachers 
would have to read every individual 
pass and retum it to the student. 

"Most colleges in the 
United States require bills 
to be paid before a student 
can attend classes." 

-Laurel Wells 

The purpose of test passes is 
"simply to insure that the student's 
account is in order." Mrs. Wells said. 
"They [the test passes] are the only 

leverage we have to insure this. Most 
colleges in the United States require 
bills to be paid before a student can at- 
tend classes." 

At one time, a list of students 
who needed to stop by the office be- 
fore taking their exams was sent to 
each teacher, however, "this was em- 
barrassing to the student because the 
teacher would have to pick him out in 
front of the whole class," Mrs. Wells 
said. "Then the student would have to

stress during exam week," states Mrs.

Upgraded Telephone System To Facilitate Outside Calling 

By John B eckett 

Changes lo be made in Ihe next 
few months will greatly improve the 
telephone service available to domii- 
lory students. Both the Ooltewah-Col- 
iegedale telephone company and 
Southern College are acquiring addi- 
tional equipment. As a result, students 
should find it easier to call out - and 
false busy signals for incoming calls 
will virtually disappear. 

The present telephone system, a 
Mitel SX-2000, serves 509 dormitory 
rooms with only 16 incoming trunks 
for direct-dialed calls. These trunks 
are full much of the time between 6 

and 1 1 p.m. on a Epical weekday eve- 

The college has ordered installa- 
tion of 16 additional incoming lines, 
doubling that capacity. Experience at 
another college indicates that this 
should be sufficient to handle our 
load. It was originally hoped that 
these lines could be installed during 
March. Unfortunately, Ihe telephone 
company does not have enough ca- 
bling between Collegedale and Oolte- 
wah to handle this order at the present 
time. The congestion will disappear 

their old relay-based equipment in 
Collegedale with new solid- state digi- 
tal equipment. This will free up 
cables needed for our incoming-line 
order and provide a dramatic improve- 
ment in service for the 396 exchange 
as well. They are also installing addi- 
tional lines to Chattanooga. 

A common complaint of students 
is that it is difficult to dial off-campus 
numbers. Our present system has a 
feature (activated by dialing "1" when 
you get the inevitable busy signal after 
dialing outside) that is supposed lo put 
you in line for the next available 

Unfortunately, there is no "line" 

When the next outside trunk becomes 
available, everybody who has re- 
quested a position in line receives a 
triple- ring simultaneously. The first 
person to gel their telephone off-hook 
gets their call through. This is why 
students who take more than one-half 
second to answer that triple-ring never 
get through! (If you get tired of get- 
ting ringbacks, dial "62" lo cancel 
your queuing order.) 

A new software update from the 
equipment manufacturer is scheduled 
to be installed the night of March 22. 
This may solve the "mob" problem. If 
it doesn't, we will investigate further 
to see what can be done.

The second point emphasizes 
educaiion. Education is important be- 
cause of the way Acquired Immune

AIDS causes structural changes 
in the cells it attacks, destroying the 
body's abihty to fight off illnesses.

Minimum Wage increase Wili Affect '89 Students 

By David Hamilton 

A new law will be raising ihe 
minimum wage by SI. 30 and increas-

same time, according to Helen 
Durichek, assistant vice president for 

'it is projected that minimum

over a three year period," Mrs. 
Durichek said, "beginning with an in-

When minimum wage increases up lo 
53.60 an hour, the projected additional 
cost to Southern College will be about 

Last year, student workers re- 
'ed about SI. 159,600 in wages. 

Although this amount will increase as 
die minimum wage does, according to 
Student Association President Renou 
Korff, this does not mean a big im-

"If minimum wage goes up, the 
college budget goes up." Korff said, 
■'and if the budget goes up, so docs

call inflation." 

Seven years have passed since 
minimum wage was increased in 1981 
from $2.85 to $3.35; however, the col- 
lege has been only paying minimum 
wage within the past diree to four 
years. The clause for subminimum 
wage allows certain organizations to

put students on work/study. It saves 
the college money." 

A student is usually accepted in 
the work/study program if he is eli- 
gible for a PELL Grant. 

Student work is an important 
contribution to the college, according 
to Mrs. Durichek, because so many 
students can be hired at a low cost and 
can fill positions that the school would 
have to pay a professional much more 
to fill. 

For example, many campus jobs 
consist of the simple need to answer a 
phone and take messages. If a student 
were replaced by a secretary, die col- 
lege might have lo pay twice as much 
for the professional. 

"There is no way the college

What It Was, Was Floor Hockey 

Bui. ■ 


I walked inio ihe college gymna- 
sium the olher nighl with a sizzle bur- 
ger and a NuOrape and casually sat 
myself down to watch Ihe new sport 
on campus. I was pretty sick of bas- 
ketball and was really sick of watch- 
ing Rob Bovel! play. Bui that's beside 
the point. The game immediately 
caught my eye. 

II looked like some transplanted 
Northern game where guys run around 
the college gym without ice skates, 
wearing gloves and whacking each 
other on the hands and shins doing 

wounded opponent. 

ig was the fact that all this bedlam on 
le floor was caused by every player's 
esire to knock around a little orange 
isc. I think the players called it a 

dressed like they had just walked off 
ihe set of "Friday the 13th." They 
wore the same kind of funny, ugly- 
looking white mask. Hey, c'tnon 
people. I'm not kidding!! I was scared. 
These two guys also wore big 
pads all over their bodies and when 
that orange disc came flying close by 
they would jump out in front of it and 
let it hit them. I couldn't understand. 
Both of these men were guarding little 
cages that were enclosed with white 
string. But it was obvious that there 
was nothing inside. 

Every now and then the little or- 
ange disc would wind up inside of one 
of these cages and then everyone 
would stop running around and the 
masked man guarding the cage would 
look all depressed (as depressed as 
one could look in one of those ugly 

But I was really impressed with 

all the other guys on the noor that 
were running around like chickens 
with their heads cut off. They were 
doing everything they possibly could 
do to try and put that little orange disc 
in the little cage. They would sacrifice 
Iheir bodies and even beat each other 
to a pulp just to be able to have a shot 
ai trying to put that little disc in one of 

But you know what I really 
couldn't believe? Out in Ihe middle of 
all these spastic maniacs stood a con- 
vict from the local penitentiary. I 
could tell by his striped shirt. And 
what topped it all off was the fact that 
my tax dollars were going to feed this 
guy. But I could already tell he was 
well-fed because he was a little on the 
pudgy side. 

1 walked out of the gym that 
night a little confused. I asked the sec- 
retary on my way out what was taking 
place out there. What it was, was 
hawkee?...haucky?...anyway. you get 
Ihe idea... 

McKenzie Keys Victory! 
Over Echemendia 13-7 

Banfe's high-powered offensive 
attack ied by the scoring machine 
Mark McKenzie again proved too 
much for their opponent's defense. 

Echemendia's team. 

The game was fast-paced, with 
many shots on goal. David Banfe 
started his team on a roll by drawing 
first blood. By the half they had 
rolled up a 6-3 lead. 

The second half opened at a furi- 
ous pace, but slowed as the playeni 
tired. When the buzzer ended the 
game, the scoreboard read Banfe 13, 
Echemendia 7. 

Mark McKenzie again led all 
scorers with six goals. David Banfe 
went on his own scoring binge, adding 
five goals of his own. Mike Fulbrighi ] 
scored five goals in a losing effort. 

Early in the season, Banfe is out 
in ftoni with a record of 3- and look- ' 
ing very strong. While, on the other | 
hand, Echemendia fell to 0-3, appar- 
ently still looking for that ingredient to 
put them in the win column 

Dedeker Takes Jaecks 4-2 

Jay Dediker's hockey team played 
superb defense and did what ihey had | 
to on the offensive end of the fl 
and they walked out of the gym v 
their biggest win of the s 

. for. 

wards were good. I'm speaking, of 
course , of Scott Begley and Kyle 
Tomer. Dedeker himself added two 
moi« to rxjund out his team's scoring. 
But let's talk defense. Sieve Jaecks 
and Ted Evans could hardly buy a free 
shot on goal asthey were swarmed all 
night by Dedker's defens. Lynell 
Lamouniain played one of the best 
games of his career in goal, allowing 

One of those shots deflecied off oi 
the defenders . 

The game was 2-0 at the half in fa- I 
vor of Dedeker and yet I thought | 
Jaecks could pull it out. The game I 
went to 4-0 before Jaecks lit up the I 
scoiBboard. It proved to be a long I

Dany Hernandez 

There are several points I 
would like to make regarding 
the editorial in the March 17, 
1988. Accent 

1. The decision to close 
the Campus Kitchen at 2 p.m., 
the 25 percent wage policy and 
the decision to omit pictures 
from the 1988/89 calendar are 
all fmancially sound. 

A) It is a simple tenet of 
economics that, in the long run, 
an enterprise which continues 
to lose money will cease to en- 
Campus Kitchen. 

B) The 25 percent wage 
policy applies only to students 
whose accounts with the school 
are not kept cuirenl. Southern 
College is not a lending institu- 
tion, and if it were, it certainly 
would not lend money to 

already owed it 
money. I would venture to 
guess that the same would be 
true of any student currently 
enrolled at this school - or 
should I conduct a random sur- 

C) The fact is that when 
money runs out, it's gone for 
good. The suggestion to have 

dars they use for public rela- 
tions is merely shuffling the 
numbers. It would make no 
difference if the cost of the cal- 
endars were charged to grounds 
or service or security. One can 

shuffle the numbers in a budget 
any which way, but when the ■ 
money runs out - that's it! 

2. The administration is 
responsible for the continued 
financial viability of this insti- 
tution - not the students. I 
wonder about that sometimes, 
though, because if all the stu- 
dents paid their bills, the ad- 
would not be faced 

decisions relating to the 

Mail Bag 

Dear Editor 

I am writing in response 
to the March 17 editorial and 
the pictureless calendar article. 
Obviously my opinion differs 
greatly from that of the editor 
and since I am an SC student. I 
would like to voice my opinion 
rather than be included in the 
editor's students who oppose 

First of all, including one 
year as a student missionary, I 
have have been at Southern for 
four and a half years. Each year 
a new activities calendar comes 

Then again, ultimate re- 
sponsibility does rest with the 
administration (specifically re- 
cruitment and admissions) be- 
cause they make decisions 
about who gets to come to this 
school. There are students at 
this school who owe in the 
neighborhood of $10,000 and 
are not making a single passing 
grade in any of their classes. It 
is akin to a sin to keep them on 
here and take their money - 
money which in effect will 
probably have to be written off 
as a bad debt. Maybe the ad- 
ministration would not be faced 
with these decisions if they 
didn't have so many of these 
^pes of bad debts. In addition 
to financial and academic prob- 
lems, these students inevitably 
pose the deans with discipli- 
nary problems, but let's get 
back to the issues at slake. 

3. There is not a single 
line item on the college budget 

(with the exception of teachers' 
salaries) which, if eliminated, 
would put this school "in the 
black" for the 1988/89 schoo 
year. This necessitates that sev 
eral smaller cuts - like the cat 

Uncontrollable inflation v. 
resulting in a $500,000 increast 
in the 1988/89 budget over tha 
of the current year. The ad 
ministiation is caught between I 
a rock and a hard place: they 
could raise tuition $500 per stu- 
dent, or seek ways to cut spend- 
ing and keep costs as low as 
possible, [t seems that either 
option is equally unsatisfactory I 
to some students. With the cur- 
rent bad debt situation the 

than was absolutely necessary. 
Part of the $500,000 in-

Student Association Presi- 
dent Renou Korff was correct 
when he stated. "If the mini- 
mum wage goes up. the college 
budget goes up, and if the 1 
budget goes up, so does i 

year I use it for more tfian two miti 

the same purposes: activity in- the entire school ye 

formation, personal notations, for the new idea! 

class deadlines and test dates. I And second, I 

have yet to hang that calendar reading articles whi 
for its pictures! In fact, I often 

even seen! MY SC calendar i 
not used for its pictures bu 
rather as an information sourci 
and reminder. I would be glai 

And frankly, I spend enough 
money in tuition already and I 
don't need to spend any more 
for pictures that I never look at 

tion! I have found that if ap- 
proached properly, adminismi- 
Uon IS willing to listen!

Destiny's Florida Trip Witnesses, Unites Group

The 10 member drama group, led

"II was the bcsl floor hockey game I've seen al Southern College. The goal

Steve Jaecks said about the Russell-Pollett hockey game Tuesday night. 

The game staned with Evan Veness scoring Russell's first goal against

possible in the first period. 

"Both goalies played very wdl." said Remy Guenin. Guenin is goalie for

Dickinson Shut Out By Russell Team 

I heard about these two new Canadian players on campus so I though I'd 
over to the William A, lies Physical Education Center and take in the 
Russell game. 
What I found out was quite interesting. First of all, these Canadian kids 
play. But that was no surprise. Second, Russell won the game 6-0, But that 
no surprise. Third, il was an extremely physical game. That was a surprise. 
Things got off to quite a slow stan but it didn't take long for the action to 
up and before the ref could blow the first whistle I had forfeited my front

Scot^ Adams lit up the scoreboard first with a goal at 17:31 in the first 
half. What is somewhat shocking is the fact that no one scored another goal until 
6:56 in the first half when Veness slipped one by Kevin DeSiiva unassisted. But 
between these two goals there was some seriously wild hockey. 

Killer (Oscar) Brown continued to sacrifice his body on behalf of his team. 
Angel Echemendia, the game's referee, consistently "strained at gnats and swal- 
lowed flies."

so that Angel MIGHT be able lo spot a few of the numerous violations that were

Dennis Thompson fired in a shot from mid-court a 
victory began to look exceedingly small. A mere 32 seci

For Dickinson this game could have been entided "The Day After." 

"Russell didn't play the type of game they are capable of playing,"; 
stander Mike Hershberger after the game. "Dennis (Thompson) could ha 
more of a determining factor." 

It's my guess that there were too many determining factors in this game for I

Its not news to say society is searching for something 
- happiness, foresight, healing. Although psychics and 
methods of predicting the future have existed for centuries, 
the broad awning of the New Age Movement has recently 
united these different areas. To many, this movement 

New Age beliefs focus on finding peace through one- 
self - through channeling, through crystals, through astrol- 
ogy, through energy forces believed to control mental and 
physical well- being. 

According to a study from the General Conference's 
Biblical Research Institute. New Age beliefs include an 
impersonal god - a "force" within every person; the evolu- 
tion of man into Godhead; and pantheism - the belief that 
God is in everything - rocks, flowers, etc. 

Judging by its following on the West coast, the New 
Age Movement does more than talk about providing inner 
peace - it delivers. So why not try the New Age philoso- 
phy to son out the problems in your life? 

Why not? There's a catch. 

The catch is that God has no place in the' New Age 
Movement According to New Agers, God is you. Maybe 
you can fmd answers by reading your horoscope. Maybe 
you can find well-being by holding crystals in your hand. 
Maybe you can predict the future by watching how a pen- 
dulum swings over your palm. 

Maybe. But once all the props arc exhausted there's 
only you, alone. Is that enough?

Apology Of An Alumnus 

Southern College Was A Good Choice; 
I Would Attend There Again: Henson 

I have made a lot of bad 
decisions in my mere 23 years, 
and if I were to relive my life 
thus far, I hope I would do 
many things differently. 

One of my decisions, 
however, was a good one which 
I would repeal if given the 
chance: I attended Southern 

As I complete my first 
year of gi^duaie school, I often 
reflect on my experience at 
Southern. Naturally. I have 
both good and bad memories. 
Some of you have heard me 
express the bad memories in 
the form of criticism; for this I 
am not sorry, diough I tremble 
lest reason and love did not al- 
ways properly shape those criti- 

This lime, however, 1 
would like to acknowledge the 
good memories. Following are 
some of the reasons why. were 
1 to relive the past, I would 
again attend Southern. 

Most importantly, I re- 
ceived a solid education. In- 
deed, I have found in graduate 
school that my college back- 
ground is just as good as that of 
any of my peers'. Of course, 
there is room for improvement 
in the qualiQ' of Southern's 


Dear Editor: 

Just wanted to congratu- 
late Mike Exum and the other 
leadens of CARE for putting 
together such a nice program 
this past weekend. Thank you 
for reminding us of our need to 
celebrate, not just the birth of 
Christ {at Christmas) but also 
His sacrifice on our behalf (on 
Easter weekend). 

1 can't think of anything 
else that could have been a 
greater blessing than a series of 

education, but 

a thorough and realistic one. 

Furthermore. Southern 
has Ihe celebrated small -pri- 
vate- residential-college advan- 
tages. For example, classes are 
taught by professors rather than 
graduate students as in a uni- 
versity, and the small size and 
proximity of the student body 

friends. My favorite memories 
of Southern are of the friends I 
found among the faculty, staff, 
and administration. These are 
people with experience and in- 
sight to whom it is worthwhile 
to speak and listen. What could 
be more fun and educational 
than having a discussion over 
lunch with, say, a physicist, a 
theologian and a college presi- 
dent? That is an experience 
unique to the small college. 

Another Southern advan- 
tage is that it is a Christian 
school. True, I personally 
didn't always agree with the 
manifestations of its Christian- 
ity, but no one can honestly 
deny that Southern stands for 
the Christian ideals of love for 
God and man. Being a Chris- 
dan, 1 am proud to have at- 
tended a school which claims 
the name of Jesus. I also feel 

unection of our Saviour. 

1 was particularly blessed 
by Dr. Richard Frederick's ex- 
cellent semion on Sunday 
morning in which he empha- 

privileged to have been able to 
discuss philosophy and religion 

who have thought deeply about 

Finally. Southern is a Sev- 
enth-day Adventisl school lo- 
cated in a community which is 
steeped in Adventisl culture. 
Now, this is frankly the point at 

em arise. Unfortunately, rigid 
tradition is sometimes at cross- 
purposes with education and 
Christian tolerance. However, I 
do indeed love my Adventisl 
heritage, and I believe that Ihe 
Adventisl culture contains ad- 
vantages and ideals worth pur- 

For example, 1 believe 
most of the luiique Adventist 
lifestyle to be sensible and de- 
fensible. I found this lifestyle at 
Southern. Furthennore, as a 
general rule. Seventh-day Ad- 
ventists are remarkably nice 
people. They are unusually seri- 
ous and intense about discover- 
ing truth through religion, and 
this naturally leads to some 
philosophical intolerance which 
I think is, in itself, reprehen- 
sible. However, it also leads to 
an unusually caring attimde for 
the well-being of the whole per- 

sized that because Jesus i 
form the dead we have the hope 
of eternal life through Him. 
What an inspiring thought for 
the beginning of a new week! 

It would be nice if next 
year the Sabbath morning serv- 


Organ, Symphony Concert Brings Large Audience 

By Vicki Evans 

What's so unusual about an or- 
gan concert? Oh, nothing, except that 
one doesn't see too many of them. 
How often can any of as say we've 
seen an organ big enough, or even 
powerful enough to dwarf a 75-piece 
orchestra, both in size and in sound? 

Next problem: where lo put such 
a behemoth. Well - somebody has al- 
ready taken care of these little incon- 

"It isn't a combination thai 
there's a lot of literature for because 
it's so dil^icult to find an opportunity 
or building or facility where it's pos-

Orchestra Director Orlo Gilbert said. 
"Obviously only in churches, and then 
only in churches thai have adequate 
organs, which there aren't very many 
of . - . and then only in those churches 
that provide staging large enough to 
put a full symphony orchestra." 

Obviously, the rarity of such a 
happening would require not only 
these pre-requisites but also a talented 
orchestra and an organist of incredible

When the students surveyed as-

habits had changed since they came to 
SC, 39 percent said their eating habits

Mary Wisener, manager of the

transition from home to school. 

"Most of the time when they're

Cafeteria Uses Less Sugar And Salt To Aid Healthful Diet 

Incorporated in the topping of 
every entree and in the crust of every 
piece of pie is a lot more planning 
than meets any superficial taste test. 

Earl Evans, food service director, 
says he provides a variety of foods in 
all three campus eating places because 
IS concerned both about meeting 
students' demands and satisfying their 
nutritional needs. 

"We really a. 

the young people. We get together and 
talk about these things [menu planning 
and nutrition] and we try different 
things." he said. 

The cafeteria offers a wide array 
of food to tempt the palate: the left 
side of the serving area displays 
juices, yogurt, fresh fruit and a saUd 
bar. The right side hosts a frogurl ma- 
chine, a selection of sodas, and 
shelves holding Kudos bars, chips and 
C5randina's cookies. Straddling the 

middle is an ice cream freezer and a 
refrigerator with milks ranging in vari- 
ety from skim to chocolate. 

According to Evans, the cafeteria 
makes two entrees, two fresh vege- 
tables and one dessert for every meal. 
Although the cafe has a fully slocked 
ice cream freezer, il also offers the 
lower- calorie alternatives of frozen 
yogurt and Vitari. Evans said he has 
priced dessen items higher dian fruits 
as "a deterrent" to over-indulgers. 

For example, honeybell oranges 

sell for 12 cents apiece, apples for 25

Through The Legs 

Ok OkUd attempts to kick the soccer ball from between Victor legs. 
Soccer is the final intramural sport played on the Southern College 
campus. During the year, six different sports are played which include 
Softball, flagball, vollyball, basketball, floor hocky and soccer. Intramu- 
ral sports are a big part of Southern College and many spectators turn 
out to watch the games each year.

goal, allowing Victor Berumen a pen-

shanked the kick wide and mosi of the 
first half passed without a score. 

Shawn Nelson ended the drought 
late in the first half with a breakaway

later Johnson came hobbling off the 
field with a seemingly career-ending 
ankle injury. Sieve Kreitner, however, 
later discovered Johnson was faking

a Dr. Pepper. Is there an honest alhleie 
in professional sports anymore? Any- 
way, sorry for the distraction. 

Early in the second half, a shol

DeSilva headed it in giving his team a

Around almost every graduation 
time, McFarland begins writing letters 
and making phone calls to SC, many 
of them containing threats, according 
to Sahly. McFarland demands a di- 
ploma and the chance to march in the

SC student's Opinion 
Visible In Newspaper 

This year, the Soulhem Accent staff has lired hard lo 
be a student newspaper. We regularly nJn letters to the edi- 
tor which both praised and reprimanded the views of the 
Accent. We have printed many personal opinion columns 
written by smdents on school -oriented material. 

To accent our student-oriented format, this final issue 

contains four surveys taken by students about problems 

thai relate to the Southern College campus. There is also a 

fcaUire about the four senior art majors and their exhibits. 

When the KLM (Korff. Larrabee, Malone) Student 

I officers did a good job. we praised them. 

t Waidrop did a fantastic job planning and producing 

school yearbo- 
s planned by S 

; SA func- 

ii Jodi Larrabee have 
sd Miss Larrabee for 

SourHfffiv /iif/noR/rs. 

But running a fair newspaper requires both negative 
and positive material. If only positive anicles were printer 
in the Accent, the public might receive a false image ol 
our college and think il a Utopia. Worse, they might dis- 
count the Accent as a public relations tool rather than a vi- 
able newspaper. 

Many times this year, the administration has ne- 
glected lo inform the student body about decisions effect- 
It was only after management cut the Campus 
Kitchen hours that the students were aware of any change. 
An article voicing Student Association President Renou 
Korfrs opinion was written and printed in the student 
newspaper. Administration decided that students should 
pay their bills before being able lo receive 25 percent of 
their wages. The Accent ran stories and an editorial voic- 
ing student opinion. The Accent staff has tried to carry this 
theme throughout the year. 

This year, the Accent staff feels we have accom- 
plished our goal in creating a paper that is worth reading 
and showing to your friends. We hope you have enjoyed 
reading die Accent as much as we enjoy publishing it for 
you. Have a great summer and see you nest year.

Many Have Cheated, Few Would Report Others 



About half of the students al 
Southern have cheated during their 
college careers, according to a survey 
concluded this month. More than 90 
percent of the students surveyed said 
they feel cheating is a problem, 
though only three percent say they 
would repon a cheating incident. 

A poll of 100 Southern College 
students was taken at 11:30 a.m., 
March 18. in the college cafeieria. 

Informed of the survey results, 
the college administration said that 
most forms of academic dishonesty 
can be handled on the classroom level 

Following are the questions and 
the students' response. 

Have you ever cheated here at 
Southern? 48 percent said yes, 51 per- 

Cheating Survey Results 

u ever cheated at Southern College? 

Do you think cheating is a prob- 
lem here at Southern Collegfe? Of the 
group surveyed, nine percent say it's a 
major problem, 43 percent say it's 
somewhat a problem, 37 percent say 
it's a minor problem and eight percent 

If you saw someone cheating 
would you report them? Of those 
polled, 73 percent say they would not 
report a fellow student cheating. 23 
percent are not sure and three percent 
would report the incident. 

Maiy E!am, director of records at 
Southern College, says thai at U.S. 
military academies such as West Point 
students are required lo report inci- 
dents of academic dishonesty to the

If they do not repon it. they are as 
guilty as the person cheating. 

Southern College students are 
not required to report the action of 

One student polled said, "I 
haven't seen many people cheating. 
But when I do, it's usually copying 
someone else's homework and simple 
cheating like thaL It's a problem but 
you can't really do anything about il." 

Dean of Students Dr. William 
Wohlers says the Southern College 
administration should have a more 
uniform policy on academic redress. 
Most forms of discipline are taken

"Teachers must explain clearly the re-

Students answered two other 
questions in the survey as follows. 

Why do you think students 
cheat? According to the survey's re- 
sults, 39 percent say it's because of 
pressure to get good grades, 24 per- 
cent say it's due to poor study habits, 
eight percent say the class is not inter- 
esting enough to study for, and one 
percent say it is due to improper moni- 

"Students cheat because of lower 
morals and values ... it has become a 
way of life," a student in the junior 
class said. 

What do you consider cheating? 
Of those surveyed, 12 percent feel 
cheating is a part of school, 21 percent 
say it's a bad habit, 15 percent say it's 
an indiscretion, and 43 percent say it

those who experimented now do not 
drink at all. The 49 percent figure in- 
cludes these few-time drinkers; the 46 
percent represents those who have 
never experimented. 

According to the survey, 42 per- 
cent have five or more friends who 
drink alcohol, while 16 percent have 
no friends at all who drink alcohol. 
The survey failed to define if these 
friends were Southern College stu- 

The survey also found that 80 
percent of the students came from 
families where neither parent drinks 
alcohol. Fifteen percent said one par- 
ent drinks alcohol and five percent 
said both parents drink. 

Asked when they had their first 
drink, 56 percent said in high school 
and 26 percent said then first time was 
before high school. Tlie other 18 per- 
cent first drank in college. 

Dr. Gerald Colvin, chairman of 
the psychology department, said the 
54 percent who have experimented 
"sounded relatively normal." He 

thoughi [he figures might be a little 
too high, though. 

Colvin said he was shocked to 
find that nearly a fourth of the stu- 
dents said they were more than just 

"It is one thing lo experiment 
with drinking, but another to admit it 
on a social or weekend level." 

He said he did find solace that 
only 18 percent first drank in college. 
"I was pleasantly surprised that 
so few start drinking in college," Her- 
man said, adding he recently has 
counseled students who started experi- 
menting with alcohol in college be- 
cause of peer pressure. "I wish it were 
still lower," Herman said, "but I 
thought il would be much higher." 

Qualley and Hobbs said that in 
the past two years they haven't had as 
much of a problem with drinking as 

"It's because the policy is being 
enforced better," Qualley said. "Al- 
though we have dealt with less drink- 
ing in the last two years, I don't think 
that a lesser percentage of students are 

drinking," he added. '"Students are 
more discreel, because they know the 
policy is being enforced." 

The deans said that in the last 
two years nearly 10 students in the 
men's dorni have been caugh[ drink- 
ing, and about half of them had to 
leave school because of [heir problem. 

Southem College's policy 
against drinking alcohol is designed to

stead of just punishing them and Icav- 


Students found drinking will be 
dismissed for at least a week, and rein- 
statement is only possible after an au-

The student will be evalua[ed as either
