ThR Pixel Theory 

The Worth Of The Whole 
Depends On The Parts 

Pixels, people, and the press haue a lot in com- 
mon . Loosely defined , pixels are those small dots in 
computer screens that light up, forming images. 
The critic would say that an individual pixel is really. 
welL -irrelevant. That the total picture is what 
counts. That a single pixel — or perhaps many 
scattered pixels — could bum out and not be missed. 

But the picture is only the sum of the parts and 
anything less than complete is imperfection. The 
missing pixel may break a line or change the color 
in some way. Not everyone will miss it. But some 

Individuals form the mass we flippantly call the 
student body. Like a missing pixel, often it's easy to 
ignore someone. We don't like what they say or 
how they say it. They're unimportant. So the picture 
fades— just a little. 

Thissemester begins with a clean slate. Welcome 
to Southern College— the school where you belong. 
You might be a senior (sure of yourself and ready for 
another year) or a freshman (wondering if the CK 
everyone's talking about is the name c*" 
reading book; you know, "CK, CK run"). 

No matter how low you feel on the totem pole, 
the pixel theory means you're important- To this 
school, to the student association, to the Accent, 

Your opinion is valuable. We want this paper to 
be your forum. Read it. Respond. Make it better. 
Make us all better. And remember the pixels when 
you get up in the moming. KLW

Judges also commended the paper for 
its factual reporting, good headlines and 
lively style. According to Journalism 
professor and former Accent adviser 
Ron Smith, who attended the three-day 
ACP seminar at Memphis Slate Univer- 
sity, the coniest was a learning experi- 
ence and proof of a job well done. 

"I was tired of criticism and my de- 
fense was that it (the news reported] was 
factually based and objectively re- 
ported. It was a vindication of sorts," 
Smith said. "That's the one thing I've 
stressed to Ihe siudenls in my class — 
and to get a mark of distinction in that 
area is meaningful." 

The Accent entered lO 
papers (dated from January 7 lo March 
24) in the competition. These papers 
were scored in five categories: ( I ) cov- 
erage and content, (2) writing and ed- 
iting. (3) opinion and conieni, (4) design

Janet Conley. College Bowl Tests Stu-

Malone. and Library's Computer Sys- 
tem Frustrates Students (Feb. 4) by 
Kevin Gepford. 

ACP judges suggested more coverage 

of a variety of sports and stressed that 
Ihe paper needed more than "token" 
coverage of women's sports. They 
praised the "colorful style of writing and 
good use of specific verbs" in three 
sports features by Mike Fulbright, in- 
cluding a sports editorial: Sportsman- 
ship. Fan Participation Creating Great 
Basketball Season (Jan. 21). 

The Accent also received praise for 
four of its editorials: Grounds Depart-

Accent on Sports 

The Big Kickoff: Variety In Sports 
Begins The New School Year 

Sports Beat 

Sport, fans, and colleagues — welcome back to 
Ihe 1988-89 school year. It is my privilege this 
year lo be your "Accent on Sports" editor and I am 
ecstatic to be a part of our school paper. Allow me 
to commend Mike Fulbright for an entertaining 
and informalive job as last semester's editor. 
Here's what's ahead this year. 

On the national front, the all American Pastime 
is in full swing as the Major League pennant races 
heat up. Locally, irrepressible Sieve Jaecks re- 
fuses lo let the limelightleave Collegedale. Jaecks 
has already organized the Southern College Soft- 
ball League. There have been a large number of 
sign-ups so far, indicating a good crop of rookies 
ready to challenge the returning veterans. Season 

opener was August 28. Hope you made il. 

One imponant baseball change. The all-night 
Softball game is going lo be rescheduled from the 
date listed on the calendar. Be watching for 
details. You won'i want to miss the sporting 
highlight of the semester. 

Sofiballisjustlhe beginning of an exciting intra- 
mural season. After the World Series All-Night 
Softball, the spotlight swings lo Hawaiian Foot- 
ball. Volleyball follows, promising to keep fans 
on Iheir feet until semester break. Then waich for 
basketball — by far the favorite sport on campus. 
The Rees Series is the climactic equivalent of all- 
night Softball, After spring break, our Canadian 
colleagues can strut their stuff to the tune of floor 
hockey. Ball replaces puck as soccer ends the 
intramural season. 

So whatdoyou do if learn sports isn'tyour forte? 
You might try checking out the variety of recrea- 
tional tournaments and events sponsored by the 
P.E. Department during the year. Tennis, golf. 

racqueiball. three-man volleyball, triathlon, and a 
swim meet are held each year. Check with the P.E. 
office and read the Accent for more details. 

I urge everybody to sign up, participate in inlra- 
murals and take full advantage of the sport facili- 
ties on campus. Gel loknow the faculty members 
outside the classroom. Ben McArthur, Bill 
David Smith, Dean Kinsey, Stan Hobbs. Don and 
June Mathis are a few that might surprise you out 
on the courts and playing fields,..then again, you 
might discover why they never became profes- 
sional athletes! 

[f you have comments or suggestions about this 
year's spons section, feel free lo talk lo me or leave 
a message at Talge (box 30 1 ). All complaints are 
lo be verbalized to Kyle Tomer in person. 

It's a wrap on sports this week. Remember ad- 
mission to all intramural games is free. What a 
bargain. Bring a roommate, date, or the whole 
family — and don't forget the dog.

Weekend calls for 
student commitment 

Family, Job. Political party. Education. Church, Boyfriend 
or girlfriend. Student leaderehip position. Spouse- 
Commitments. They come in all manner of shapes and sizes, 
Some require more responsibility and demand more time and 
energy than others. But there is one thing all commitments 
have in common. The dictionary calls it being bound emotion- 
ally or intellectually to some course of action. 

We all have commitments, no matter how blithe and carefree 
we consider ourselves. It's simply a fact of life that 
anywhere you go there are countless worthy causes 
competing for your time and attention. Many of the 
adjustments required in college and adult life revolve 
around which causes you want to t>e committed lo. 

It's a tradition in our society to set aside January 1 — 
New Year's Day^ — as a sort of "National Commitment 
Day." Each new year, thousands upon thousands of 
people reflect on the previous year and make a list of 
resolutions for the new one. They are filled with good 
intentions and determination; however, many people 
sadly look at that list one month, week, or even a couple 
of days later only to find they weren't as committed as 
they'd hoped lo be. 

This weekend has been set aside as a special Commitment 
Weekend, It may not be the beginning of the calendar year, 
but it is the beginning of the school year. Take time to really 
search your heart and decide what or who you'd like to become 
committed lo, Refiecl on the person you've grown to be over 
the summer and note especially how God has led in your life. 
Make the most of this weekend by re-committing your life to 
Christ, Then plan ways to deepen your friendship with Him. 
Make time for Him just as you would for any other really close 
friend and watch this year be the best year you've ever 

The student association has proclaimed the "You Belong" 
theme for this year and CARE has taken it one step further by 
adopting the slogan, " Vou Belong to Jesus. " Think about that 
for a moment Don't allow Jesus lo be put on your list of 
broken resolutions this year

last! The hours had been drag- 
ging, no doubt about U. Time 
usually does when you have spe- 
cial plans. But, the worst was 

! headed out to the bike rack and 
hopped on my cycle. I had to get 
home. There were chores to be 
done before the Monday Night 
Fooiball game. 

The gears in my brain churned 
even fasicr than my feel on the 
pedals. Now, let's 
could I meet my objective most 
efficiently? Delegation. I'd hide 
my objective but share the work. 
My sisters would help with the 

1 rolled up the driveway then ran 
up the steps two al a time. Hurling 

open the door, 1 sized up the situ- 
ation. My two younger sisters 
were lounging around on the sofa. 
I rattled off orders like a drill 
sergeant. Neither of my sisters 
flinched. Maybe they were used 
to this ireaiment. "Who died and 
left you boss, Mr. High and 

"Come on," I said. "You know 
mom wants all these chores done 
before the Monday Night Foot- 
ball..." Whoops! I blew it. Now 
my sisters knew my real motive. 
Might as well kiss their help 

There's a parallel between my 
Monday Night Football experi- 
ence and our spiritual lives. Many 
times in our spiritual journey we 
develop strategies and even make 
all the necessary arrangements 

for everything to fall into place so 
we can reach our own objectives. 
When we talk with God, we 
share all the wonderful things 
happening (that we planned) all 
the while neglecting to find what 
God's objective for our lives. 

As you start this year at South- 
em, remember to follow the ad- 

vice Jesus gave in Matthew 7:7- 
12. Ask God about His objectives 
for your life. Seek His answer 
through Bible reading and prayer. 
Knock on His door every morning 
when you first get up. Then, as 
you follow His direction, you will 
be living out the best plan for your 
life— His plan. El

...Where the action is. 

Why success 

comes knocking 

Ask successful people what 
makes them that way and 
here's what they'll more than 
likely answer; 

1. I have clear set goals. 
Anyone who knows you well 
ought to be able lo list your 
priorities, based not so much 
on what you say, but how you 

2. I understand my role in 
things. You should know 
what your "job" in any given 
situation is and take the neces- 
sary actions to make certain it 
gets done. 

3. 1 work hard. Ask anybody, 
it's the first rule of success. 
4. I know how to delegate. 
Nobody can do everything or 
be everywhere at once. You 
should know that and let other 
competent people be there 
when you can't. 
5. 1 have learned to compro- 
mise. For instance. President 
Ronald Reagan attributes 
much of his success as a poli- 
tician to his ability to compro- 
mise. "I've never understood 
people who want me to hang 
in there for 100 percent or 
nothing." he says. "Why not 
take 70 or 80 percent, and then 
come back another day for tlie 
other 20 or 30 percent?" 

The week in sports : Southern College Softball league 

Sports Beat 

The cream has apparently risen lo the top as 
week number one of men's slow pitch concluded 
last Wednesday nighl. With one-lhird of the 
season elapsed, we still have three teams with 
perfect records: Machado-Jas with an impressive 
3-0, Russell-Center and Berumen-Mycrs share 
identical and rather dubious 0-3's. The bad news 
for Russell and Berumcn is they are not scheduled 
to play each other and it may be quite possible for 
both 10 retain their winless status. The good news 
for Ihem and all Baltimore Orioles fans is that 
(here are only eight games per team scheduled. 

Wilhlhenumberofteamsparlicipaiing this year, 
ii would be impractical for me lo fairly cover and 
report the 20-plus games scheduled each week. So 
in an attempt to touch all the bases with exposure 
to all ihe teams, I plan lo nin a weekly team by team 
summary. Women's slow pitch and men's fast 
pitch coverage begins next week. 

This week you get a free special-bonus: aslrol- 
ogically accurate predictions. Before any of you

accurate" — 1 am not a Republican (or Democrat),

a complaint 

Machado-Jas: 3-0 last week. Looking over the 
rosierand stal sheets for Machado, one word came 
to mind — destiny. Hello neighbors. Can you say 
destiny? And the destiny I'm referring to should 
not be confused with Alan Martin's Destiny, 
because this team is putting a hurt on the opposi- 
tion. 1 am going lo jinx Machado by predicting an 
undefeated season. 8-0. 

Banfe-Plank: 3-1 last week. Big Dan Plank, last 
year's long-ball king, is teamed up with all-siar 
David Banfe and my dark-horse favorite for 
home-run honors Jim Sanderson. This is a strong 
team with plenty of power. They will finish at 6- 

Miranda-Pjper: 3-1 last week. Steve Miranda, 
Chris Grissom, and Jim Jordan provide consistent 
offense. Versatile OrestJurkin is thebestbat-and- 
waicr boy out there. Jordan has an occasional 
toasier-mitt syndrome that makes pop-ups look 
like Pop-Tarts. By Ihe way Jim. I'll give you a 
good deal on my old Wilson. All kidding aside, 
this team is good and should have been 4-0 at this 

Johnson-Van Meter: 2-1 last week. Co-captains 

Steve Johnson and Dave Van Meter have launched 
more orbililes (1 made the word up) from Col- 
legedale in one week than NASA has from Cape 
Kennedy in two years. Questionable stability but 
they should easily finish above .500. 5-3. 

McKenzie-Aumack: 2-2 last week. Is there a 
team sport that Mark McKenzie is not good at? 
Walerpolo, perhaps? Freshman Jarred Thompson 
has displayed power from the south-side of Ihe 
plate which is very advantageous on Field "B." 
Dennis Golightly has been slap-happy with base- 
hits. This team has lalenl but is slill wet behind the 
ears. I foresee a 5-3 finish. 

Monterde-Myers: 2- 1 last week. To be honest I 
haven't seen these guys play but, Scott Monlcrde, 
Steve Krielner, Scolty Adams, and Troy Epperson 
are all good athletes. A middle of the pack team? 

Green-Forquer: 2-2 last week. On paper this 

should be a decent team but perfomiancc thus far 
has been erratic. Maynard Wheeler. AKA Alvin. 
managed lo injure himself swinging for the 
ce. Randy Rouse has played only twice due lo 
rk and Rick Woolen has been AWOL since day 
:. Team attendance is detrimental to the future, 
A .500 finish would be good. 4-4. 

Horton-Johnson: 2-1 last week. This is another 
team I haven't had ihe opportunity of seeing. 
Reggie is a great baseball name but Horton has a 
lough row 10 hoe facing Johnson, Banfe and Fac- 
ulty toward the end of the season. My prediction 

Beruman-Myers: 0-3 last week. This team 
should be doing bclier with laienl like Pal Duff, 
Scolty Langford. and Toby Fowler. Toby cold- 
cocked four homers in their first two games. These 
guys will win a few before everything is said and 
done. 3-5. 

Keppler-Williams: 1-3 last week. With Ben 
Keppler. Mall Kroger, and Woody While this 
leam certainly has all the ingredients of an Oprah 
Winfrey Show. All those flashy personalilics will 
be entertaining bui not ihc right stuff for the win 
columns. No offense intended guys-I'm jusi call- 
ing it the way I see it, and I see a 2-6 final standing. 
Huenergardl-Hernardez: 1-2 last week. Now 
here is a leam that enjoys itself. Richard Moody 
told me that his only ambition Ihis season is lo hit 
the field goal. Okay Rich, give me a call when il 
happens and we'll run a special feature. Team- 
mate Catesby Ware is a little more knowledgeable 
about soflball. When I told Catesby whal Richard 
had said about hilling a field goal Caiesby laughed 
and replied that ihe pitching siaff was too good to 
give one up. Until Ihese guys bmsh-up on Iheir 
Softball jargon I don't foresee too many victories. 

Russell-Center: 0-3 last week. Like Isaid earlier 
there are only eight games in the season so ihe 
worst thing thai could happen is a five-game skid. 
Right, guys? I know a lot of the players on ihis 
leam and ihey are nice guys, but nice guys finish 
last. However. I do have faith ihat they will mar 
Iheirrccordwilh victory. 1-7. 

Faculty: 1 -2 lasi week. Last but nol least is our 
beloved old-iimers. No lack of experience on this 
leam but they are off loaslowslan. Whal this leam 
would benefit from most is a weight clause in all 
Iheir coniracls. I believemost oflhe leam spent Ihe

Bahamas trip during summer session

The time of their lives 


Ten exoticdays in the Bahamas. Sounds like 
adream, but il was one thai came true for eight 
Southern College students enrolled in the 
tropical marine biology class offered during 
the first summer session. They left SCon May

Florida they flew on a chartered airline to San

According to students, there was a myriad of 
exciting things to do on San Salvador, the 
island Columbus first landed on centuries ago 
as he searched for the New World. Special at- 
tractions included Snapshot Reef (one of the 
most widely photographed coral reefs in the 
world) where six students were able to go 
scuba diving one day. They also explored a 
sunken oil tanker in Rice Cay, off the northern 
point of the island. On Sand Dollar Beach, 
many found sand dollars (dead and alive) and 
a rare species of turtle.

they stayed contained some form of eggs,

nourishment in the coconuts and papayas

Library hours 
should not be cut 

When 1 heard the library would cut hours in the mornings and 
evenings this year, I couldn't believe it. I was told there weren't 
enough students using the facility lo make it worth keeping 
open. What kind of answer is that? 

1 understand the students weren't informed library hours 
were subject to change this year. The decision was made by 
the academic dean {Royd Greenleaf). the librariaiis, and the 
Instructional Resources committee consisting of faculty mem- 
bers from most of the departments on campus. Statistics from 
second semester last year were used todctermine whereto cut. 
The library student count from 10-11 p.m. at that time was 
about 20. 

It still might be 20 this year (in the same time slot), but those 
20 count on being able to study in the library. Most of us live 
in the dorms and we all know what it's like lo study in our 
rooms. If the phone isn't ringing off the hook, or friends don't 
stop by to visit, or the stereo down the hall isn't blaring — it's 
a miracle , It is virtiially impossible to study in your own room. 
On nights like those, you welcome the thought of a library, 

I don'l use the library a lot, but there have been nights I've 
taken advantage of its controlled atmosphere to study or do 
research — right up until 11 p.m. 

What about those students who depend on the library as their 
study haven? 

I don'l think we should have a quota. If 20 students feel Ihey 
need the library, i( should be kept open. 

I realize it costs more for this extra hour both in operating 
costs and in student wages. Does it have to be fully staffed 
during evening hours? I wouldn't think so. 

Enrollment is up around 100 students. Si 
this year was based on 1 00 less students tha 
extra money coming in (student tuition lii 
should be enough extra cash to staff (he library with four or 1i 
workers in the evening. Then, students who depend on the 
library being open until 11 p m, will still have a place 
to go. Kimberly Crawley

1 briefcase, bui 1 probably 
n'l buy another. I put up 
h a loi of misidcntincalion 

and stereotyping last year tie- 
cause I carried a briefcase. 

For one thing, people with 
briefcases are supposed to 
make good grades, right? 
People were constantly asking 
me for help in some class or 
another when I had absolutely 
no idea what was going on. 

"Bui. you have a briefcase," 
they would say when I told 
them I knew less than they did. 

If a briefcase didn't make me 
more intelligent, it at least 
made me look more intelligent. 
Il also made me look like a 
religion major. 

Now, whai do religion majors 
do with their briefcases when 
Ihey graduate? They don't 
keep ihem, do they? I've never 
seen Gordon Bietz with a brief- 
case, but I'll bet he had one in 


accounting majors carry brief- 
cases? Nearly all of ihem will 
need one afier graduation. If 
you doubt it. go downtown 
some weekday at lunchtime 
and watch the business types 
pour out of ihe offices with 
their hundred -do liar cowhides. 
Il seems business majors would 
want lo gel a head start on b 

Why ( 

Now that I think of ii, I bet I 
know why business majors 
aren't worried aboul finding 
briefcases. Graduation is com- 
ing. When il gets here, a whole 
class of religion majors won't 
need their briefcases. There'll 
Ik a grand attache swap meet. 

In fact, I wouldn't be sur- 
prised if Wayne Vandevere's 
briefcase used to belong to 
Pastor Bietz. 


Two aggravations 

inougti not to the point of losing 
sleep. But. this year I feel I can 
no longer t>c quiet. 

Aggravation #1: Take, for 
eKumple. a simple dollar bill 
changer in Talge Hall. Anyone 
wishing to use this machine 
obviously wants four quarters, 
right? In Talge Hall, a person 
having four quarters can do one 
load of laundry (fifty cents for 
the washer and fifty cents for 
the dryer). Unforfunately, this 
cra^y machine decides for 
:5ome reason not to give me four 
quaners. Instead, il gives me 

one nickel. If [ had wanted 
dimes and nickles. 1 would 
have put one of my four quar- 
ters back into the machine to 

This inconveniences the 
Talge Hall residents because 

other dollar, find anoiher qu 
ter, or wear wet clothes. 
Which should it be? Is 

what il is supposed to do. 

Aggravation #2: This past 
Sunday ! was in ihe student 

and working on Strawberry 
Festival when I suddenly re- 
memljercd it was time for sup- 
per. I slaned to go down the 
stairs that lead directly lo Ihe 
cafeteria but found that I could 
not go through the doorway. 
The desk worker told me that il 
was an administrative decision 
to keep those doors locked on 

Why? The administrators 
obviously don't mind students 
eaiing on Sundays or the cafe- 
teria would not be open. They 
obviously don't mind students 
being in the student center on 
Sundays or il would not be 
open. So why in the world do 
they lock ihe doors connecling 

Anyone wishing to go to the 
cafe from the student center 
mustgo from the top floor to the 
bottom floor and then back up 
to the middle floor. Why?

Ubrary trims hours to save money, 
avoid hassle finding night worl^ers 


A lack of use and higher cost for eve- 
ning workers caused McKee library to 

According lo Peggy Bennett, head 
librarian, statistics were kept on the 
number of students using the library 
each hour. The hour from 8-9 a.m. 
usually had a count of about six siudenLs 
using the library while the hour from 1 0- 
1 1 p.m. usually had 20 students. Based 
on that information the librarians, the 
Instructional Resources Committee, 
and the academic dean decided lo open 
ihe library at 9 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. 

Some students have expressed ( 

'ith the change but student 
president Mark Waldrop 
said, "I have spoken with administration 

concerning the issue and I am confident 
they will work with students on it," 

"We want to be open when 
people want to use the 
library." -Bennett 

One problem leading to earlier closing 
in the evening was the difficulty in gel- 
ting studenls lo work that laie, according 
10 Benneli. A second problem was 

higher wages for night workers. A nighl 
worker costs the school 65 cenls more 
than the average day worker's S3.35 an 

Hours have changed on Fridays, too. 
The library now closes at noon, two 
hours earlier than last year because only 
four to five students used the facility 

The library did extend one lime slot- 
On Sunday, the library will open at noon 
msiead of 2 p.m. because many students 
requested additional hours on Sundays. 

"We want to be open when people 
want lo use the library," said head librar- 
ian Bennett.

Higher tower planned for WSMC 

By Ti ffany Wilson 

WSMC. Southern College's classical 
radio station, will be heard better than 
ever before in the next few months. Due 
to a new ruling by the Federal Commu- 
nications Commission, the station must 
raise iLs tower height to keep the 
station's 100,000-waIt status. 

Since the siarl of its early summer 
fund drive, WSMC has raised $126,000. 
In addition to monetary benefits, the 
campaign has helped the station receive 
suppon and media coverage from Chat- 
tanooga. WSMC hopes to raise an 
additional S53,000 to achieve its goal of 
$179,000 by the projected November 
Isi cut-off date.

leaving the tower ihe way it is would 
cause the station to be reclassified and 
reduced to 50,000 watts. The station 
managers decided lo raise SI 79,000 lo 
buy land on Signal Mountain for a new 
tower rather than lose the present 
100.000-watlclassincation. The lower 
could not be raised at its present location 
because il would be in the flight patterns 
of the local CoUegedale Airport and 
Chattanooga's Lovell Field Airport. 

Hard work did not slop the station's 
promotions and develpment directors 
from pressing toward Iheir goal of rais- 
ing $179,000. The campaign began 
with a pany at the River Landing in 
downiown Chattanooga. The cam- 
paign, called "Soaring to New Heights." 
has received suppon from many Chat- 
tanooga dignitaries. Honorary Chair- 
man Z. Camer Patten of Patten and 
Panen Inc.. along with WSMC Devel- 
opment Director Jann Gentry . contacted 
supponers from Chattanooga busi- 
nesses and foundations. Supporters 
who attended the campaign party in- 
cluded city commissioners Ron Little- 
field and John Franklin. Although 
Chattanooga Mayor Gene Roberts 
could not attend, he has supported 
WSMC in past years and officially 
declared June 1 as "Soaring to New 
Heights Day." 

According to Mary Ellen Matthews, 
WSMC's promotions director, the local 
television stations and newspapers gave 


sound quality. "For one thing," said 
Walters, "the lightning protection will 
be much better and should lessen the 
lime we're off the air." New features 
also include improved clarity for the 
listening audience and a lis- 
ng range extended farther northwest 
-ard Atlanta. 

Final enrollment figures 

The official, final head count is 
1,443 students in attendance at 
Southern College this year. That 
count is 77 students above last year's 
first semester count (overall), The 
count is up 100 students here in 
CoUegedale and up 15 students en- 
rolled in the nursing program on the 
Orlando campus. Ninety-four more 
students are taking a full-time load 
this semester for a toul of 1.169. 
Drops in enrollment occurred in the 
academy extension program and in 
Chaitonooga nursing students. The 
extension program involvessiudents 
who take a course through their 
academy for college credit. 


CARE has added a new dimension 
10 its Adopt-a-Grandparent program 
this year. In the past the grandparents 
were solely residents of retiremenl 
centers and nursing homes. This year

Rebuking demons; worshiping dirty pigs 

By Shannon Born 

"O.K.! It's time to Slop! Everyone, sit down 
now. STOP!" 

The room was in a chaos. I was the student 
missionary teacher of 25 kindergarten stu- 
dents who couldn't speak English. My job 
was to make sure they learned it. 

The exercise this particular day was to learn 
how to say, "Excuse me." I'd had a brilliant 
idea. Everyone would run around the room 
bumping into each other saying, "Excuse me. 

The boys' interpretation was, however, to 
play bulldozer and shout the words at the girls 
as Uiey mowed them over. Now there were 
three little girls on the floor crying. Chairs 
were turned over and no one was listening to 

The idea wasn't to intentionally hurt each 
other and then say, "I'm sorry." They knew 
that. They just got so caught up in the excite- 
ment of the moment that they didn't care. 

That night, in my empty classroom grading 
papers, I remembered a story about five vir- 
gins who didn't have enough oil in their lamps 
when the bridegroom came. They rushed out 
to buy some, but it was too late. 

We all want to go to heaven, but sometimes 
we get all caught up in the excitement of 
college life, dating, and studies. We rush 
forward mowing down our health, the com- 
mandments, and each other thinking eventu- 
ally we can call over our shoulders, "Excuse 
me. Jesus. I'm sorry." 

I also remember a story about a cataclysmic 
flood coming and washing the world away 
when only eight people believed that it really 
would. When die rain fell, it was too late to 
say, "Excuse me. I'm sorry." 

Once there were some people who lived in 
the region of Gadarenes. They were scared 
because two of their men were demon pos- 
sessed. No one knew what to do. The men had 
become so violent no one ever went near the 
burial area where they stayed. Then one day 
Jesus came and cast the demons into a herd of 
pigs. Instead of being thankful that their 
friends' sanity had been restored, the people 
of Gadarenes turned out en masse telling Jesus 
to leave. He tried to cleanse their town, but 
they only cared about the loss of their filthy 

My kindergarten students didn't understand 
that being sorry is not just saying a few words. 
It's achanged attitude. It's being willing to let 


Jesus cleanse you no matter what the cost. 

We talk about Jesus coming soon. We pray 
about it. We even dream about it. So. what's 
the holdup? Why are we still waiting? Maybe 
it's just a little too hard to be truly repentant 
when we "re still worshiping our filthy pigs. 

"When the character of Christ shall be per- 
fectly reproduced in His people, then He will 
come to claim them as His own." (Christ's 
Object Lessons, page 69.) 

Students participate in evangelism 

By Donald Short 

"It was neat because it was so 
hands on. We actually did some- 
thing." said Kevin Powell, senior 
religion major, as he described 
the recent Field School of Evan- 
gelism held in Atlanta. One of 
Powell's responsibilities was to 
transport an elderly lady in a 
wheelchair to and from the eve- 
ning meetings. "It was neat see- 
ing her progress. Attheendofthc 
series. I was able to assist in her 
baptism. A friend and I lifted her 
out of the wheclchairand lowered 
her into the water." 

The participants revealed their 
enthusiasm in a variety of ways: 
"It was great — a valuable experi- 
ence." "[This was] definitely one 
of the highlights of my Christian 
experience." "[We had] a chance 
to lake class knowledge and put it 
in shoe leather." 

Dr. Douglass Bennett, religion 
professor and director of the 
Southern College Field School of 
Evangelism, defined the course 
as "an opportunity for real hands- 
on experience in soul winning," 
Bennett said the Field School idea 
was conceived at Southern Col- 
lege {in 1946) and has been held 

every year since then with few

but the woman I asked to report on women's

begin to boil tar and gather feathers, I do have 
standings to hopefully pacify you. (Sorry, ladies, 
no write-ups.) 

Machado-.Jas:2-n last week, 5-0 overall. Five 
down and three to go for that perfect season. The 
bubble almost burst Wednesday night playing 
Russell-Center. It took a seventh -inning rally lo 
retire a seven run deficit and avoid the upsei ot thu 
season. No chinks in the armor, yet. 

Johnson-Van Meter: 1-0 last week. 3-1 overall. 
A big victory over Banfc has moved this team into 
-second place. The offensive merits of the co- 

captains are as distinguished as the home run 
standings indicate Kyle Selby has consistently 
contributed an exceptionally strong offense and 
defense. Is this theteamloderail Machado? Only 
the tournament can tell. 

Banfe-Plank: l-l last week, 4-2 overall. 
Johnson-Van Meter have beeNi Banfe's Achilles 
tendon. Banfe's twolossescame against Johnson, 
but don't count Banfe out Saturday night. They 
will be within striking distance to win it all. 

Miranda-Piper: 1-1 last week. 4-2 overall. 
Could have been in sole possession of second 
place if not for an unnecessary loss to Green. This 
is definitely an upper echelon team, but they've 
lost games that could have been won. These guys 
might go either way in the tournament. 

Horton-Johnson: I-l last week, 3-2 overall. 
Beat Faculty and lost to Banfe. Reggie prophesied 
that he'll win the All Night Tournament, Okay, 
Reggie, let's see what you can do, I don't believe 
you'll get victory number one against any of the 
top four. 

Monterde- Myers: 1-1 last week. 3-2 overall. A 
double header Monday was all the action Mon- 
terde saw. They ran over Huenergardt, then ran 
into Machado. 

McKenzie-Aumack: 1-1 lastweek,3-3ovcral!. 
Like 1 said last week, this team has talent but 
they're inexperienced. McKenzie has won games 
they should have lost and lost games they should 

have won. Example: Monday night they beat 
Green in aclose game, then turned around and lost 
to Keppler. 

Green-Forquer: 1-1 last week. 3-3 overall. 
Needed to win against Miranda to avoid falling 
below .,100 and they got it. May be a Cinderella 
team come Saturday night, 

Keppler-Williams: l-I last week. 2-4 ove'^ll. 
Achieved a minor upset by beating McKenzie. 
But that might have been the last rabbit in the hat, 

Beniman-Myers: 1-0 last week, 1-3 overall. 
These guys finally played their potential, There 
may be a few more wins before it's over. 

Russell-Center: 1-1 last week, l-4overall. Hey! 
They got the victory I predicted. Last week I said 
these were nice guys and would finish last. Well,

of the comments they've registered in the com-

overall. This team allowed Russell's first victory 
and seems capable of taking over the cellar. Be-

When students returned to school this year, they 
might have read a note on their dormitoty bulletin 
board that read like this: A student must avoid all inap- 
propriate association with aicohol, A student 
hold any position which involves the serving of alcohol. 

According to the notice, no Southern College student is 
to work in a position as a waiter or waitress where he 
or she must take orders for, and serve alcoholic bever- 
ages as a part o( his or her job 

This "new' niling has not been in the college handbook 
although it has been a campus tradition for 20 years, 
said William Wohlers, vice president for student 
services. According to Wohlers, a committee discussed 
the pros and cons of this new addition to the college nile 

Shouldn't the school allow the students to decide 
where they are going to work and what they sen^e? We 
are adults now, aren't we? It would seem the admini- 
stration are the adults and we are always the children 
no maHer if we're 18 or 25. 

If the school has a ruling on serving alcohol why don't 
they have a rule on students serving bacon and cheese 

According to Wohlers, this was brought up in the 
meeting but ihey decided not to rule on fast fcnxl stores. 

"We do not want to tell students every detail of what 
they can't do. We want to let the students decide on some 
things," said Wohlers, 

Why does the school decide what we can do in some 
areas thai are against church policy and not others that 
are condemned in the Bible? Maybe the school should 
take another look at the handbook and other traditional 
nilings and allow students to decide what they can do.

Finding strength to survive, adapt on Majurol 


"Ladies and genliemen, we are approaching 
ihe beautiful island of Majuro. Please bring 
your seals to their upright position and secure 
Ihe trays in front of you. We will be on Ihe 
ground shortly." 

My heart pounded, my camera clicked. 
There was teeny, liny Majuro. Located about 
2300 miles southwest of Hawaii, it boasted a 
length of 30 miles and an average width of 
about 1/4 mile. I collected my things, mum- 
bling a short prayer, "Lord, I'm not sure why 
You brought me here, but I'm glad You did." 

Student missionary life on Majuro had be- 
gun. The magic word overseas is "adapta- 
lion." 1 soon adapted to rats and lizards in the 
house, winds strong enough to blow your skirt 
overyourhead. water rations, screaming kids, 
and rebellious teens. 

Sixty Marshailesc young people were en- 
trusted to me along with the task of teaching 
seven high school classes a day (ranging from 
Government to Biology to Bible). As lime 
went on, 60 identical brown faces emerged as 
unique and precious personalities. It was just 
a matter of time before I fell in love with each 

And God.. .He was out to teach me big les- 
sons. I arrived planning tliat logclhcr, Jesus 
and 1 were going toconverl all of my sludcnls. 

instead, many times I found myself begging 
for the strength just to endure my students, 
much less convert them. 

But He did teach me. I remember one day in 
particular, during lOlh grade Bible class. I 
wanted to show ihe kids that temptation hit me 
just as hard as it hit them. Then Clinton, one 
of my students, said something I'll never 

"Bui Miss Shull, if you have a solid founda- 
tion, you won't fall." I'd never heard some- 
thing so simple, yet so pro found.. .especially 
from Clinton. 

"You're right. Clinton," I said. Later, as the 
students filed out, I inquired, "Clinton, do you 
want to have a solid foundation?" He looked 
down, looked at me. then said, "I'm just not 
ready yet." 

I saw God work in mighty ways during my 
time as a student missionary. One boy, 
Xerxes, decided to build his solid foundation. 
Aftera few Bible studies and many deep talks, 
Xerxes made the choice to be baptized just 
hours before I left Majuro. 

Before I knew it, my time had come and 
gone, and I was sitting by the ocean for the last 
time. 1 remembered the good, the bad, the 
happy, thesad. Tearscame full blast. How do 
you end such an experience? How do you 
write about it when it's over? I learned more 
about life in seven months as a student mis- 

sionary than all the hours I've ever spent in a 
classroom. I learned about another culture I 
learned how to teach...I learned how surpris- 
ingly weak I am. ..but I learned how incredibly 1 
strong God is. 

"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome aboard I 
flight 957 direct service to Honolulu, We I 
hope you have enjoyed your stay on Majuro. 
Please bring your seats to their upright posi- 
tion..." Homeward bound.

stocky man who had a reputa- 
tion around the mission com- 

would be teaching English and Bible classes 
Monday through Thursday for 7-8 hours per 
day. It really wasn't what I expected, which 
left me a little confused about my mission. 
Then I met Bill. 

Bill Huang was a short, stocky man who had 
a reputation around the mission compound. 
He had studied there and befriended many 

previous student missionaries. I had heard 
about his habits and temper but was interested 
to find out about him for myself. So when Bill 
offered to take me to a famous Chinese land- 
mark. 1 gladly accepted. On the way there, he 
bombarded me with questions. Most were 
very direct, even stinging. 1 thought to myself, 
"Who is this man to judge me? He isn't even 
a church member." But Bill would always 
say, "I bear you no malice." 

On the way home I was feeling tired and was 
nodding off when I heard Bill start to hum a 
hymn. Although surprised, I began to hum 
with him. We sang for the next two hours — 
old hymns as well as contemporary songs for 
young people. It was the beginning of a close 
friendship between the two of us. Whenever 
I began to lose sight of my mission, Bill was 
there to remind me. I'm sure God was using 
him to keep me straight and focused in my 

Tlie remaining months went by quickly, 
with school outings, student visitations, 
teaching, and Bible study filling my days. Bill 
continued to give me and the other student 
missionaries advice on how we could better 
serve the people in Taiwan. 

The students I had in the language school 
enjoyed learning English, but also responded 
to the message of Christ presented in our 
worships and parables. And they loved to 

learn and sing Christian songs. 

Being a student missionary taught me a lot. 
Many times I told my students that it didn't 
seem fair because they taught me more than I 
taught them. If you are thinking about being 
a student missionary, ask yourself what you 
can do for the people before you commit 
yourself. Make sure you know. Then look 
"forward to a year of service thai you'll never

"What made you decide to be an assistant 
dean?" That's the question people ask me 
most often this year. 

My career as a task force worker started out 
as just a wild idea. My friend, Tammy, and I 
were tired of studying. We'd been going to 
school for 15 years and this was the perfect 
break. We knew what academy life was like 
and the kids would love having some young 
"cool" faculty. 

Together, Tammy and I could make life 
easier for the students and at the same time 
have a fun year away from studying. 

Well, things didn't tum out the way we 
planned. Tammy was under the age required 
to be a task force worker and I was stuck going 
to Bass Memorial Academy all by myself. 
Suddenly this didn't seem like such a great 
idea after all.

I began lo think seriously about being an 
assistant dean. What was my real reason for 
going to BMA? To be a "cool" faculty 
member or lo lead students closer lo Christ 
and help them set their own standards? 

A couple of weeks before school started, I 
airived in Mississippi still wondering what 
kind of year it would be. It finally dawned on 
me thai maybe I was there for a reason. Maybe 
God was planning to use me as an influence in 
people's lives. I made up my mind I'd try to 
be a good Christian example and support the 
school and its rules, even when il meant not 
being liked by the students. 

It wasn't easy fo 

them spiritually, when actually I was the one 
getting closer lo God. 

Il was tough being a "fun" faculty member 
while at the same lime enforcing the rales. I 
loved gelling to know the studenls. They were 
fun and made my life so much more interest- 
ing. They understood it was my job to gel after

[Lastine nabs winning trophy in SC Triatlilon 

By Randy Rouse 

If you weren't in Cohulia Springs. Ga., at 7 a.m. on 
Sept. 25. you missed Jim Herman and dozens of others 
gathered for ihe fourth annua! SC Trialhlon. 

A scanlily-clad bunch was figeiy and nervous, but 
not from lack of clothing or the presence of shuller- 
bugs. This group was anxiously anticipating an early 
morning dip. A 1/2-miIe swim across Lake Cohuila 
would precede a 30-mile jaunt by bike and a 10- 
kilometer run. (Ten kilometers js 6.2 miles— for those 
with inquiring minds who want to know.) 

The participants call themselves triathleies. I v 
call them masochists by the terms of their endea 
Personally, it was enough for me to make it out of bed 
at such a ghastly hour on Sunday morning — the 
thought of hopping into the lake was completely re- 
volting. Don't think I'm knocking the athletes— they 
are a rare breed and 1 respect their capabilities. To be 
a iriathlele requires more than recreational participa- 
tion. Ii demands a lifeiiiyle of discipline.

Shortly after sunrise. Phil Garver assembled the 
athletes on the boat ramp. With a prayer and a gunshot. 
he sent the herd stampeding into the lake. First to 
emerge on the other side was Tim Prusia, who estab-

members Chris Mitchell and Dave "Gazelle" Nemess 
built. Prusianot only lead Ihe victorious relay, but also 
went on to place third for the men's individual. 

Congratulations to my R.A., Jeff Gang, for a strong 
second in the men's individual. (How many razors did 
it take to shave your legs, Jeff?) 

Southern College Ironman honors go to Craig 
Lastine, a freshman and alumnus of Mount Pizgah 
Academy. Craig had a good swim but excelled on the

Take sports (or example. We recently witnessed the

Three cheers 

Southern College is in the 
middle of an ocean of opinions 
aboui the t)esi way to run a 
campus — and it is hardly pa- 
cific. Who should have the last 
word on campus policy any- 
way? Currently thai responsi- 
bility seems lo lie with the 
administration. Policy changes 

mosl of this year's changes are 
sensitive and insightful — lo 
which parking nile changes are 

a particularly ugly exception.

the way twoks and school sup-

pensive this semester. 

Are these examples just roses 
among the thorns? I think if

reasons why Ihe restoration project is 
top priority. First, thecolumns look bad; 
secondly, they are load-bearing which 
means if they deteriorate loo much, the 
entire porch will collapse. However, 
Costerisan, who supervised the installa- 
tion of the columns, disputed the second 
point. He said the pillars were "not 
really load bearing" and the porch was 
"preny much structurally sound." 

Condensation forming inside the pil- 
lars is thought to be the cause of the 
columns' deterioration. When they 

were installed, Costerisan put in an air 
vent at the top of the hollow columns 
and placed them on a pedestal ai the base 
to allow air flow throughout. 

According to Costerisan, there might 
not have been enough air flow through 
the columns so that when the air tem- 
perature inside the columns dropped al 
night, condensation fOrmed on the un- 
protected wood. 

Costerisan said there were problems 
with this approach. The column cores 
are rough, sawed, untreated lumber 
which can readily absorb moisture. The 
company which manufactured the col- 
umns, said Costerisan. told the college 
treating the wood was unnecessary. 

According to the engineering depart- 
ment, if the college chooses to replace

along with some traditional ones. There 
will be a banquet, rafting trip, Christmas 
party, daughter/parent brunch and

Gilder, Kuttner to debate economic policies 

By Wendy Odell 

Political debating is almost becoming a national 
obsession in this year of big political decisions. Not to

Working through the same agency that coordinated 

George Gilder 

Fred Friendly's presentation last year, they decided to 
have a political debate. 

'That would be a lot more interesting and illuminat- 
ing than having one person coming in and giving an 
analysis." according to Dr. William Wohlers, vice 
president for Student Services. 

The speakers, though not presidential candidates, are 
widely renowned. 

George Gilder, held to be an undaunted proponent of 
free enterprise, is credited with influencing and shap- 
ing die United States economic policy during die two 
terms of the current administration. 

Robert Kuttner, also a leading economic analyst, will 
represent a different stand on the relevant economic 
issues in tiiis election. Kutmer is presendy a national

and die London School of Economics. Gilder and 
Kuttner have given back to the educational system by

Hey Confused, 

A year ago we were required to attend five

to have thanked the person for their interest ir

Last night I had a dream. 

I dreamed I was standing on a 
misty plain. As 1 looked about 
me, everything grew dark. The 
air was damp and hung with the 
stench of decay. A harsh, cold 
wind cut through my clothing and 
carried a cacophony of sound like 
a thousand voices crying out in 
terror. ! could see nothing but the 
endless, impenetrable mist. I 
began to wander across the plain.

thing, anything to break the 
monotony of gray. Something lo

clashing dissonance. Each time, 
my heart grew colder. The mist 
grew more dense; the darkness 
more oppressive. 

My mind at last grew weary of 
the night and created fantastic 
images for me to gaze upon. My 
hands worked feverishly to carve 
them out in stone in a vain effort 
to make them more solid — more 
real. But. each of my sculptures 
turned out to be only a crude par- 
ody, mocking dimly-remem- 
bered shadows. 

Soon I gave up these inventions 
of my phantasmic imagination 
and turned lo thoughts of escape. 
I tried to sleep, but the clamoring 
voices would not let me. I tried to 
run, but stumbling on the stones I 
had carved, I fell headlong to the 
frozen earth and my heart tumed

one note long and clear. Another 
voice very near, but very soft, 
answered. More voices, from all 
across the plain, joined in. Soon, 
the single notes blended together, 
swelling to magnificent harmony 
under ihe guidance of the Light. 

Revived, 1 stood, and reaching 
out I touched another shadow's 
hand. A spark arced between us 
bursting into flame, illuminating 
us and wanning our hearts, re- 
freshing our minds. The mist 
rolled back, revealing myriad

AIDS focal point of student education week 

Southern College recently concluded 
an AIDS education week. Surgeon 
General Dr. C. Everett Koop's'film on 
AIDS was shown during dorm worships 
Sept. 25-28 and local epidemiologist 
Dr. Douglas Bechard, a graduate of 
Loma Linda University, was assembly 
speaker on Sept. 29. 

"I'd already heard everything that was 
presented on the AIDS film, but it's still 
a scary thing to me." said Diane Ott. 
sophomore. "I'm certainly going lo do 
everything I can to avoid the known 
transmitters of AIDS, but I'm not going 
to be so afraid of getting the disease that 
I avoid restaurants and public places." 

"I'm not scared of AIDS because I 
know thaiifl kc€p my actiogether. there 
won't be a chance of me catching it." 
said Brennon Kirsicin. freshman, 

Dr. William Wohlers, vice president 
for Student services, said even though 
Southern College students are probably 
at lower risk of contracting AIDS than 
public university students, "that could 
get us to think AIDS is not our problem. 

said perspective, information, and edu- 
cation were key items in fighting AIDS. 
"I can assure you. everyone here will 
know .someone with AIDS in three 
years," Bechard said. 

Bechard quoted statistics compiled in 
Nov. 1987 reporting 44.757 AIDS cases 
in the United States. Breakdown of 
AIDS eases by ethnic background 
showed heavy minority concentrations. 
Blacks account for 24,8% of all AIDS 
cases while making up 11.5% of the 
United States population. Hispanics 

55.000 people — close to the same 

Vietnam— will die of AIDS in 1991. 

People are becoming more aware of 
the danger AIDS presents, said Bechard. 
Education is the most important step in 
combating what Bechard terms

Following our paths 

The evolution of a 
'new' concept 

In a true democracy, representatives follow the paths 
of the people who elect them. Here's three cheers for 
an administration and grounds department that did well 
to follow our paths. 

A mathematical principle states the shortest distance 
between two points is a straight line. Civil engineers 
know it. Pilots know it. Reduced travel time is the result. 

Here in Happy Valley, our math came slower. For 
years, slippery footpaths were the most direct but most 
dangerous routes on campus. 

This was the first stage of our college sidewalk evolu- 
tion: neanderthal mud canals. 

Picture the scene. Theyearr 1985. Thcweather: mud 
soup. Thetime: 7;59a.m. The route: the footpath from 
Talge to Lynn Wood Hall. The victim: a Talge 
freshman. With that combination if isn't hard to visualize 
flying books and mud-stained pants. The evolution of 
sideivalks catapulted into the 20th century. 

Our second stage was the Berlin wall. In Berlin first 
came the warning. Here it was a sign. People walked 
(or ran) past both. In Berlin they built the wall. On one 
path here, it was a fence. People jumped both. 

We like not only speed, but freedom to walk that 
straight line. 

Our grounds department knew that. They had plans 
for our third stage of development over six years ago. 
Rnally it hascome: the concrete sidewalk. Not only do 
we have a sidewalk between Talge Hall and Lynn Wood 
Hall, but also between the halls of Talge and Daniels. 
Wright and Brock. 

No longer must we sing "slip sliding away." No longer 
are we contained Berlin-style. We have clean clothes, 
less erosion, and less aggravation. All thanks to innova- 
tive people who recognized a simple need for change.

Symphony to perform at Carnegie 


The Southern College Symphony 
Orchestra will open its 1989 summer 
lour with a performance in New York's 
Carnegie Hall. The Orchestra opens this 
year's fall season Oct. 29. 

A few weeks ago the 84-member or- 
chestra submitted an audition tape to the 
"Youth Music Debut Series" and was 
selected from hundreds of groups for the 
Carnegie Hall concert. 

"I think it's going to be a good experi- 
ence for the group." said two-year vio- 
linist Ndala Gooding, sophomore. 

Following the Carnegie Hall perform- 
ance, the group will fiy lo Greece where 
members will spend the remainder of 
the tour performing at stale festivals in- 
cluding the Pendeli Festival at the 
American College in Xalandri, The 
orchestra will also perform at the Palias 
Odeon Amphitheater and Amphitheater 
of Nikkia. 

Originally, the tour's desiination was 
Scandinavia, but because of recent 
events, il was changed to Greece, 

"The major reason the tour fell 
through," said director Orlo Gilbert, "is 

the Parthenon, and the Memorial to the 
Unknown Soldier. Each siudeni will 
have to pay $8(Xt leaving SI. 000 per 
person for fund-raising. The orchestra 
tour begins May 12 and will continue

Social forecast is looking good says Kwon 

By Voung -Mi Kwon 

We've been here for about seven weeks, and we're 
loving eveiy minuie of il. righl? I mean, who could 
Ihink of anything belter than homework, tests, and 
midtenns? College is to educate, so we sit in our 
rooms— glued to our desks— reading, writing, calcu- 
lating, and occasionally pulling out hair in pure frustra- 

I'm here to tell you there is more to life than sUtisiics. 
chemistry, and even accounting. 

Instead of pulling oui your hair, let it down. It's okay 
10 get out and have some fun. Relax and gel involved 
in the Big Social Life here on campus. 

First, there's the dating scene. Have you everconsid- 
ered. girls, what a terrific opponuniiy we have with so 
many guys in one place at one time? Some are even 
pretty cute! So whaido wedo? We could wait for that 
certain man to ask us out, or we could ask out that man 

Oct. 7-9 is the SA's Dutch Weekend, which means 
thai nobody has an excuse to be daie-lcss. Girls, you 
needn't worry about il being "'proper" to ask out that 

man— he'll be waiting for you to ask him out! He 
won't reject you (unless he's already been asked out by 
another woman), so call him now. 

Tie key to remember is that this is a Dutch Weekend, 
not a Rcveree Weekend. Tlial means, guys, iflhat babe 
is just not responding to your not-so-subtle hints re- 
oarriin^ your eligibility (some girls need to be hit over 

a sledgehammer), don't worry. Youc; 


Have you ever considered, girls, what 
a terrific opportunity we have with so 
many guys in one place at one time? 

Now the dating scene is looking better, right? We've 
actually got a date (or two or three) for the weekend 
(that means Friday through Sunday). To help you out. 
the SA has planned a marshmallow roast at the Student 
Park on Sunday, Oct. 9. to end the weekend. 

The Big Social Life has got to h 
though. So, on Oct. 22, why not c 
"Almost Anything Goes"? This i 

.r the SA's 

lime event to do crazy, zany, off-the-wall things you 
always wanted to do but never could. So. all you closai 
personalities out there, this is your night to come out 

The next weekend after this (Oct. 28-30) is Alumni 
Weekend.'sokay. Really. Most of the Alumni 
arc pretty cool and they won't bother you at all. Jusi 
keep in mind that they'll go home on Sunday and on 

Oct. 31. the SA Fall Festival begins. This is a 
weeklong event to bring out the spirit of fall in all of us. 

A bam pany at Fillman's will kick off the week. The 
party starts at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 31. There will be 
refreshments, exciting entenainmeni, and a costume 
judging competition (so come dressed for the occasion 
evenifiimeansdressingnormally!). Watch for further 
announcements and directions. 

Well, that's all for this month. Remember, there is 
more to life than homework. 

Oh yeah, and if any of you have ideas or suggestions I 
for the Big Social Life, let me know. 

Until next month , keep your chin up. And d 
forget to have fun.

Personal view 

Flagball: a matter of opinion 

By Randy Rouse 

Crisp evenings of early autumn kindle fond memo- 
ries of my illustrious academy flagball career. Here at 
Southem, it is fall once again and football season is 
upon us. Fall is my favorite season and flag football 
has been my favorite intramural since academy. 

In academy we used to pout about not being allowed 
[o play tackle and being restricted to "wimpy" flagball. 
Now at college, football, reduced to flagball, has been 
neutered and dubbed "Hawaiian." 

1 had a mental block about Hawaiian flagball — it was 
difficult forme to visualize my self as Dan Marino, Jim 
McMahan, or John Elway playing football to coconut 
grove rules. As a maner of fact. I even chortled to 
myself while dressing for a game, thinking that a grass 
skin and sandals would be more appropriate than 
shorts and cleats. I was not alone in my brooding. 
Recently 1 have overheard many colleagues grumbling 
and whining. One complainer went so far as to state a 
desire to attend a "real" college, to play "real" football, 
that is "real" fun. The sincerity of the comment may be 
questionable, but its content startled me. 1 have since 
been reconsidering my own altitude towards Hawaiian 

Though Hawaiian flagball may be played by coconut 
grove rules, il does contain all elements of real football 
(passing, receiving, running) except for physical con- 
tact (spearing, clipping, chop-blocks, canning the 

center, head slapping, separating the ball. etc.). The 
twist is the three offensive exchanges per down. Now 
this lakes some getting used to, but once you get the | 
feel for things it really isn't too difficult tc 
The lack of physical contact has. howev^. e 
one factor of realism — the injuries. 

In the 30 or more games of Hawaiian flagball I'v. 
watched, the only casualties I witnessed were an ocea 
sional "pigskin facial" and several ripped pairs o 
shorts. Recollecting my senior year of academy. 1 | 
remember broken arms, sprained knees, bruised ri 
and several scuffles in a measly eight-game seas 
Boy. was that fun!? 

My first year here at Southem I was crestfallen upon I 
the discovery that we were going to play Hawaiian I 
flagball. I participated simply for the lack of a better I 
aliemaiive. Despite my reservations and doubts, ' 
mid-season I was actually enjoying this south-si 
version of football. For light-weighl IQ's thai might | 
miss the epiphany of this article, it i: 
who have in the past or are presently disgruntled with I 
Hawaiian fiagball might just need ic 
open minded. Allow me to use the old saying. "Try il, | 
you might like it!" 

Those who tuned in to read about your favorite local I 
nagball team, please forgive me for subjecting you lo I 
a poisoned pen, but I have been inspired to address | 
those dissenting souls among us. Next issue 1 promise |

Religion retreat held at Indian Creek Camp 

By Donald Shurt 

The Sludcm Ministerial Associalion's 
Religion Rcceal was held al Indian 
Creek Camp last weekend, Thepresen- 
laiions by Elder John Fowler, a 
raccoon's visit, and Sabbalh recreation 
highlighted the outing. 

The Friday evening message, "The 
Pastor and Spirituality," reminded reli- 
gion majors that "spirituality is the tap

church hungers for truths that made this 

But students apparently were not the 
only ones who were inspired. A "com- 
mando coon" interrupted the meeting 
by sneaking in the open door and sprint- 
ing to the front of the chapel. Fowler 
quickly won back the audience's atten- 
tion, however, by cornering the little 
beast and adeptly scooping it up. The 
hltle critter endeared itself to all by 
climbing on the preacher's shoulder and 
licking his ear. 

On Sabbath morning Fowler said, 
"Religion cannot be related only by 

show members ways to deal with the 
crises of every day."

The day Wise Old Owl learned a lesson 

By Go r don Bietz 

For many years in Fenton Forest, all of the forest 
inhabitants had attended weekly council sessions 
to be instructed in the proper ways of forest life. 
But it seemed to Wise Old Owl that there were not 
any changes in the forest. 

Wise Old Owl observed ihai not only were there 
no changes in the lives of the forest folk, but ihey 
were not paying aitenlion during these weekly 
sessions. Many slept or were using the time for 
sharing Fenton Forest news. 

Wise Old Owl usually spent a lot of time prepar- 
ing his talks. There were those who said they 
enjoyed what he had to say, but he had this nagging 
suspicion they were just being nice. 

He decided to experiment. One week he pulled 
a story out of a very old Fenlon Forest Digest and 
just read it. It was a tear jerking story but really 
didn't give much new information about anything. 
Freddy the Fox told him il was the best talk he had 
heard in a long time. 

Another week he put together a lot of instruc- 
tions from the Fenton Forest manual and strung 
them together with a few quotations. He shouted 
a lot during that talk. After the service, Ben and 
Gruf the Bear as well as Opie Opossum said he 
.said some things that had needed saying for a long 

Wise Old Owl decided to be scientific, so he 
passed out a survey one week afterlhe meeting (to 
see how much was remembered about what he had 
said). Crabby Crow, who heard he was going to do 
Ihis. tried to discourage him. "You won't like 
what you find out!" he wamed. 

Wise Old Owl went ahead and did the survey, 
and it was true. He didn't like what he found out. 
Most of the folk in the forest couldn't remember 
from one week to the next what he had talked 
about. The week prior toihe survey he had spoken 

about the importance of preventing soil erosion, 
Lightfoot the Deer was the only one who remem- 
bered the topic because of a story he told that 
tickled Lightfoot's funny bone. 

If no one could remember the subject, why 
should they bother to have the weekly sessions in 
the Fenton Forest Council? Wise Old Owl was 
discouraged and began skipping any preparation 
for the weekly sessions. When he did that, some 
did began to notice and talk went around that he 
was losing his touch. 

He was surprised anyone noticed he was losing 
his touch. If they couldn't remember what he 
talked about when he was doing a good job, why 
did Ihey rememberihe poor ones? He soon got his 
answer from Scamper the Squirrel. 

As he was slumping discouraged-like in a NtJt 
Hut booth early one morning. Scamper came di- 

rectly to him. "Wise Old Owl," Scamper began, 
(now he rarely called him Wise Old Owl so Wise 
Old Owl knew something was coming he should 
listen to). "I am beginning to remember your 
messages in the Forest Council and I want to tell 
you something." 

And with those remarks Scamper came close to 
Wise Old Owl. "I ate last week on Monday . but for 
the life of me I can't remember what it was I ate. 
Now I probably would remember if I had eaten 
garbage. The fact that I am beginning to remember 
your message may not be so good. You must 
understand. Wise Old Owl," Scamper used his 
name again for emphasis. "It is important to eat 
even if I don't remember what I ate."

ist church in Collegedale.

Chattanooga malls plagued with auto theft

"It was the best group we've had. All 
were interested, cooperative, and got 
along unusually well. They had a leam- 

group. We were one big. happy family." 
The smallest group since the study 
tours began had nine students. It was Ihe 
tour of England in 1987. There are 
usually about 20 participants.

The European continental summer 
study tour was started in 1982 by 
Wohlers, who was then chairman of 
SC's history department- Wohlers has 
been leading the trips ever since. As 
tour leader and teacher, his expenses are 
paid for. 

The initial plan was to travel with a 
small group of eight to 10 history stu- 
dents for at least two months of study. 
However, a small group of history stu- 
dents traveling abroad is not very eco- 
nomical, says Wohlers. Allowing any- 
one to go. adults as well as students. 
makes the trip more affordable. 

"The part of the trip I liked most was 
our stay in Dilbeek, a suburb of Bnis- 
sels," said Wohlers. During the stu- 
dents' stay in Dilbeek. they lived in 
houses with other families in the area, 
free of charge. A man named Alfons

city of Dalton, showing them all ov

on a bus, one of them got pinched." 

According to Janet Conley, the trip 
had one flaw. "The bad pan about the 
trip was watching Richard Moody and 
Dennis Golightly gawk at every Euro- 
pean babe that walked by," said Conley. 
"They might even flirt if they had 
enough guts." 

While on a tram in Amsterdam, Beth 
Malgady almost had her purse picked by 
a pickpocket, but Malgady discovered 
the pickpocket's hand in her purse just 
in time to save her money. "She yelled 
at the man." said Moody, "and the man 
left the tram cursing." 

Students received up to six hours of 
either history or humanities credit. 
During the trip, students were required 
lo study and outline one textbook on 
western civilization and another on an 
history. From the books. studenK were 
then required to write up to eight essays.

Things started rolling with plans for a new gymnasium. SMC 
had poor recreational facilities and insufficient funding to 
provide a remedy. Enter the tme "Dynamo of Dixie "-the 
Committee of 100. In 1965, the PE Center was completed, 
paid for almost entirely by the Committee, and qwen to 
Southern College. Cost: $375,120.

Where were you, ma'am, ihis morn- 
ing when ihe pigeons putted patiently 
about waiting for the woman with the 
bread-bag to toss their breakfast out?

scramble for their food once you 

ked your bread-bag off the bench 

i sideways to the walk. And, 
I've seen you leave before 
the lunch crowd comes to entice your 
birds with better food than yours. 

I feel I know you. I even know your 
name— Ihe Pigeon Lady. That's how 1 
call you when I find a need to speak. 

I told the postman and made him 
laugh. When he passes by

Life from the perspective of a piece of clay 

By Werner Stavenhagen 

It was dark. Murky. Slicky. Slimy. I 
was literally al the bottom of ihe barrel. 
Being clay in a storage barrel was like 
being a human without purpose. Iknew 
Someone had made me a substance, but 
1 didn't know 1 could be a piece of 
pottery. Actually. I was comfortable. 

Then came Gentle Hands, I didn't 
know Him by that name then. Who did 
He think He was. reaching down into the 
barrel and grabbing me? 

He carried me lo a table and began 
kneading me. Back and forth He rolled 
me. pressing me between His palms and 
the table. He squeezed me, folded me, 
rolled me in a ball and patted me. I felt 
worn. Why did I have to be stretched? 
Why the pain? Didn't fellow batches of 
clay tell me it was good enough to be in 
the ■■Christian" storage barrel? 

But I didn't know what He was mak- 
ing me to be. Gentle Hands couldn't 
mold me on the pottery wheel until I was 
thoroughly kneaded. The air pockets of 
relying on my own security needed to be 
worked out before I could be useful. 

Splai. My belly met the steel wheel 
head on. 1 started spinning. My center 
of gravity was off. I felt lost I was a fat 
lump of glorified mud on a cold metal 
plate whirling in circles at roller coaster 
speed. Something was wrong. 

But then I felt the water. With a 
squeeze of a sponge. Gentle Hands 
doused me with cooling moisture. Ifelt 

relieved. Though 1 was worn from 
kneading and dizzy from spinning off 
center, I knew Gentle Hands was work- 
ing on me. 

His touch. To feel the gentle pressure 
of His palms against my now moist sides 
was pure exhilaration! His palms 
smoothly pressed out my chunks. He 
centered me. Now I could handle the 
speed of the poner's wheel because I 
was perfectly balanced. 

Slowly He pressed His fingers with 
peneiradon mio my heart He opened 
me up. 1 was overwhelmed. He not only 
doused me with water while I was still 
an unworthy blob, but centered me on 
His wheel and opened up my hean. 

I was open. But I was still squat. My 
walls wereahalf inch thick. Iwastoofal 
to be used and I needed further stretch- 
ing. He touched my base with His wet, 
soft hands. His fingers from both hands 

patience He gingerly pulled me up. My 
walls grew tall. Again and again He 
pulled me up. As I rose I noticed that He 
was also shaping me at the same time. 1 
gained curves, thinned out, and became 
sleek. I was becoming beautiful. 

Finally the spinning stopped. 1 
thought I was done. But the firing was 
ahead. After I dried out. He look me off 
the shelf and put me in a big round 
container lined with stone plates. He 
clo.sed the lid above me and ii was pitch 
dark. 1 got scared. Could it be I was 
returning to the storage barrel? Would 
Gentle Hands ever touch me again? 

My walls became loasiy. I began to 
panic. Fiery heat penetrated meablazed 
dirough my walls. I started doubling 
how die Potter had made me. Were my 
walls thick enough not lo crack from ihe 
heat? All I could do was remember He 
had allowed me in this furnace so the ihe 
firing had to have purpose. His hands 
would save me. 

And they did. His fingers excitedly 
stretched wide to grab me at my base. 
He pulled me out of the kiln and held me 
high. I sensed His joy as He ran his 
finger along my lip. With a glaze and 
another firing. I was complete. 
Now He uses me

Campout held in Tellico Mountain Range 

Ten S.C. students and two faculty members 
spent last weekend in Ihe mountains of the Tellico 
Range on the CARE fall campout. They talked 
around the campfire. hiked many miles, and 
gained spiritual insight and revitalization. 

Some of the campers left Friday morning, found 
a campsite about 1 00 miles from Collegedale and 
enjoyed the breathtaking views that the Tellico 
Wildlife Management Area affords. The others 
arrived in time to spend Ihe evening singing w ith 
Mike Kim's guitar and Shannon Bom's ukulele 
That night a wild boar was spotted snooping 
around the camp. 

Gunfire ushered in Sabbath morning as hunters 
in the area made sure everyone knew it was the 
first day of open musket season. 

After breakfast, the four girls, six guys and 
faculty sponsors, Mark and Jayne Antone, decided 
to climb the mountain to Bob's Bald. They drove 
to the trail head, successfully dodging boulders 
and churning through mud holes to assault the 
summit by foot. 

A w orship service was held on the grass at the

Peel went on to say that people seem to 
disagree with things that don't fulfill 
needs in their personal religious experi- 
ence. He adds that we shouldn't fool 
ourselves by believing diat playing 
"Sabbath" music for Adventists is evan- 

According lo Peel, the General Con- 
ference was and is taking a look at the 
methods radio stations should use to 
reach the secular mind. Radio is be- 
lieved 10 have a good chance of reaching 
the secular community because at pres- 
ent, the church is having a difficult time 
reaching them. "The self-sufficient 
person believes he is 'okay' and doesn't 
need any help from God." commented 
Peel. This type of person, intelligent 
and somewhat knowledgeable in the 
ms, is likely to listen lo a classical 
music station such as WSMC. "Right 

station in over a 100-mile radius...we 

[if we were a gospel station]," 

"Dan Matthews (Christian Lifestyle 
Magazine) once told me that Adventists 
believe themselves lo have a higher 
sense of spiritual things and deeper 
sense of religion than Ihe average per- 
son." recalled Peel. Matthews went on 
to challenge the idea that Adventists 
look for only religious programs while 
looking through a TV-Guide. "How." 
said Matthews, "can we expect people 


actively seeJ 
tion (when w 
them ourselves)?" 

Peel has been asked what gow 
have the secular audience if r 
programs are not played. He s: 
gious programs are played throughout I 
the Sabbath hours, and are programmed | 
similarly to the regular weekly formal. 
■This formal is consistent with the 
weekly format- People who listen to us 
know that there will be talk programs 6- 

Saturday. the church service begins 

Peel did cite 1 1 hours of specific reli- 
gious programs that run from sundown 
Friday to sundown Saturday. One such 
program. "Music of Inspiration." is a 
classical music program wiUi religious 
commentary by Dr. Bruce Ashton. The 
commentaries are short enough that the 
lisiener will continue to listen, knowing 
that music will soon follow. 

Peel says WSMC "softens" the 
ground for church people going into the 
community, "We 
gelistic wheel," h 

tioned that an article in Columns maga- 
zine quoted 

said she was impressed with WSMC 
She said her misgivings about Advent- 
ists were erased, and now felt mo'^ 
comfortable with them.

The program consisted of three musi-

A change of menu 

Flaws in our China 

Ruby Tuesday's restaurant on a Thursday night. 
Leaded-glass lampshades, ceiling fans, and old pic- 
tures on the walls. Atmosphere. The stage is set. 

A young couple enters, chooses the nonsmoking 
section, and orders vegetarian. The blonde waitress 
from Lee College (says so on her sweatshirt) smiles 
pleasantly and brings their drinks. "Areyoustudents 
at Southern College?" she asks. 

Appearance, conversation, and actions. Clues. 
Somehow she guessed. 

The scene changes. Same location 45 minutes 

The couple is almost finished eating and the guy 
looks at the check briefly. Several numbers. There, 
the subtotal is just over $15. He places two worn 
tens on the tray with the check. The waitress says 
she'll be back with change. 

She returns. "I thought I owed you some change, 
but the bill came out even," she says. 

Appearances. What's happening? Even Tennes- 
see tax doesn't inflate a $15 tab to $20. The guy 
thinks the waitress from Lee College has just in- 
vented a new 30-percent TIP bracket — he's wrong. 
The couple leaves the restaurant abruptly and the 
curtain drops. Do you know what happened? 

The tab was actually just over $20 with desserts 
added in. The guy misread it. 
. Happens everyday. We judge without all the facts.

sions, but the greatest harm is that we've thought ill

The Acct;iil was published twice each

strict and demanded thai we use good

Profile : Mike Butler 

By David Lee 

■"I feel one should never be satisfied 
wjih one's self, but always strive to be 
belter," says Mike Butler, a contract 
teacher of the Southern College art 

Butler, who was bom in Chat- 
lanooga, is currenlly teaching a mom- 
ingseclionofDesignl. "I am learning 
more from my Job teaching art than my 
students are," said Butler. "1 get ex- 
cited when a student has a new idea — 
a sparkle in the eye." 

Although "doodling" in high school 
was a stepping stone to his career, il 
was going to college that gave Butler a 
whole new perspectiveof an. He says, 
"Ibeganloleam the boundaries of an. 

and its discipline as well as its infinitc- 
ness." Butler attended three years at 
the University of Tennessee in Chat- 
tanooga and finished his Bachelor of 
Fine Arts degree at the University of 
Tennessee at Knoxville. 

There are two goals Butler has set 
for himself. The first is lo become 
more potent in his expression, and the 
other is lo give his students a chance lo 
be prood of iheir work and them- 
selves. He says, "I try lo gel the best 
out of each student."

Today, members of the class of '38 
have grandchildren attending col- 
lege or already graduated. Some of 
us have grandchildren who have 
married — some of us even have 
great-grandchildren. The records 
show that eight of the class are dead.

years have affected not only ihe class 

The present girls' dorm

Last year I visited the new broom 
shop, quite different from the broom 
shop down the hill from the old girls" 
dorm and dining room where I 
stitched new brooms. The old ho- 
siery mill is gone now, replaced by 
the college press. We didn't have 
McKee's Bakery or the cabinet 
shop, but there seemed to be plenty 
of work foreveryone who wanted ii. 
Fifty years ago the slaff, headed by 
President J.C. Thompson, totaled 3 1 
(including all industrial superinten- 
dents). Bui if we didn't have quan- 
tity, we certainly did have quality. 
We knew we could go to any one of 
them for counsel or encouragement. 
Harold Miller had his heyday in 
music. Eva Maude Wilson not only 
supplied us with good wholesome 
meals, but was our friend as well. 
We all loved her. And who can 
forget Dayton Foley's cinnamon 
buns even after all ihese years. 

We rejoice in ihe changes that have 
been made on the college campus 
over the last 50 years. Southem 
College has become an outstanding 
educational insliiulion. As my mind 
goes back lo the little Southem Jun- 
ior College on Ihe hill, how thankful 
I am I was a part of that school and of 
the class of 1938.

1978 was a landmark year for the dress

Ihe college's history, women could

Sunday and after 7 p.m. on weekdays. 
Guys were admonished to wear nice 
slacks with "appropriate" shirts or 
sweaters— no T-shirts or sweatshirts.

because they were knocking down pan 
of the mountain lo build a safer entrance 
road. The old road had some sharp, 
dangerous curves in it. Until the road 
was completed, we used back roads to 
get in and oui of Collegedale. 

In 1978, the road we called Wright 
Hall Circle (now Taylor Circle) was 
made one-way. And administration was 
deciding how ihey were going to raise 
the money to build the new Fine Ans 
Complex (now Brock Hall and Mabel

The current presidential cam- 
paign is recognized by many as 
one of the most negative in 
American hislory. It has pro- 
duced anger, mud-slinging, 
and division- These are not ihe 
fruits of a Spirit-filled Chris- 
tian life. (See Gal. 5:22, 23.) 

What guidelines assist the 
Advenlist Christian regarding 
political issues? Look at ihe 
way Jesus reacted to ihe politi- 
cal scene in His day. Although 
govemmem was comapt when 
He was here on earth. Jesus 
never interfered with the politi- 
cal powers in existence. He

We believe all 
should carefully read the coun- 
sel Ellen While gave regarding 
political issues before they 
vote. She discusses 

extensively the Adventist po- 
litical role in Gospel Workers, 
pp. 391-396, and Fundamen- 
tals of Christian Education, pp. 
475-484. Her paraphrased 
counsel appears below. 

We cannot safely take pan in 
pohlical plans. It is not right 
for us to vole for or with a 
political party. Bydoing so, we 
become "partakers with them 

while in office." The Lord 
would have us bury political 
questions. On these themes, 
silence is eloquence. "Let po- 
litical questions alone." 

It is not wrong to associate 
with unconverted people, but 
we should noi align ourselves

By Debbie Cl ark 

Eight students from Southern 
College's journalism deparlment at- 
lended a national college media conven- 
[jon in Atlanta last week. They were 
among ! .400 delegates at the four-day 
onveniion. sponsored by the Associ- 
[ed Collegiate Press and College Media 

"The thing that was most 
I helpful to me was learning 
f how to best market myself to 
a potential employer." 


More than 200 learning sessions cov- 
lered all aspects of student media — 
lewspaper, yearbook, magazine, pho- 
liography, business, advertising, tech- 
nology, press law, and broadcasting, 
ions, according to junior public 
. major Lisa Vollberg, were 
Iboth helpful and enjoyable. "The thing 
■as most helpful to me was learning 
o best market myself to a potential

Three SC seniors took advantage of 
the convention's fifth annual job fair.

was an exciting experience." 

Jimmy Carter, 39th president of the 
U.S. and former Georgia stale senator 
and governor, held a town meeting press

After some brief remarks. Carter look 
questions from students. 

In view of the upcoming presidential 
election. Carter's political observations 
had special news worth for the student 
press. Jim Huenergardt, senior photo 
journalism major, was impressed with 
Carter's delivery at the press confer- 
ence. "Carter was very knowledgeable 
and answered ihe questions with ease. 
He struck me as friendly and informed," 
said Huenergardt. 

The field trip to ihe convention was 
planned and sponsored by Ron Smith, 
assistant professor of journalism. 

Smith said two highlights forhim were 
having SC students arrange inlerviews 
with major media publications and at-

Benjamin McArthiir moderated. 



McArlhur: America has enjoyed a revival of pros- 
perity and naiional pride and a lowenng of inflaiion. 
Why Uien should the public lum oul ihe Republicans in 
favor of a Democrat?

Bledsoe: The thing ihai worries me and most Demo- 
crats is the deficit problem. Most people are worried 
thai even ihough ihe economy problem looks good, 
eveniually there will be the bill lo pay because of that 
economy. 1 feel that Bush"s way of taxing and lower- 
ing of capital gains is ihe wrong approach because 
we're already owing so much money. 

McArlhur: Given the culbacksin available student 
aid, why would students support a Republican admini- 

While: Because once ihey do graduate, there is a 
thriving, prosperous economy to r e into. In ihc 
previous administration, a student c^„d go lo college 
by receiving all kinds of loans, but once they gradu- 
ated, ihey faced an economy ihai was jusl in shambles. 
It's hard to find a job, il'shard lo support a spouse, and 
it's hard lo pay back the loans. 

McArlhur: How would the particular concerns of 
college students in regards to federal grams and loans 
be benefited from Dukakis' administration? 

Bledsoe: The Democrats are more interested in 
allowing qualified people go lo school. The only way 
lo improve the job situation is to have a college degree. 
Even if the economy is a good one to graduate into, it

government is more compassionate, gentle, and com-

"son of America and how does it see ihe federal 
government as helping to realize that? 

Bledsoe: The Democratic party wants all Amen- 
cans 10 have ihe opportunity to prove whal they are 
capable of doing, by making it through college and 
eniering the work force. When all ihe people are 
working together to make that country sirong. the 
safely of Ihe country is certainly insured. 

McArthur: Woody, should the frequently-voiced 
concerns about Dan Quayle give the voters second 
thoughts about voting for the Bush ticket? 

White: No. ihere should be no concern about the 
selection of Dan Quayle. He has a sincere dream lo 
aliain the Republican vi.sion which I've already out- 
lined. He has the experience and the intelligence to 
perform well— very well— under pressure. Unlike 
Dukakis. Bush is not regressing backward by picking 
a 67-year-old man who represents an already attained 
set of goals and dreiams and who is also out of touch 
wiih approximately three-founhs of the American 
population in his age group. 

McArthur: Gavin, whal evidence has Michael 
Dukakis given thai he is capable of marshalling wide- 
spread support for his agenda? 

Bledsoe: I think thai some of ihe concerns Dukakis 
voiced in Massachusetts— like insurance for people- 
are things diat Americans should pay attention to. 

McArthur: Now,inaddiiion to the presidential elec- 
tion, all 435 members of the House are up for re- 
election as they are every two years. In our own 
district, we have an incumbanl running for re-election, 
Congresswoman Marilyn Lloyd, Woody, why should 
a student here ai Souihem College vole Congress- 

1 Lloyd oul of office in favo 
Harold Cokcr? 

White: For at least 10 years now. Congresswoman 
Marilyn Lloyd has been out of conuct and out of touch 
with third district voters. In her tenure there, we've 
seen a steadily declining introduction of bills of icgis- 
lation. But even worse, she has passed only two pieces 
of legislation — one to name a federal building in 
Chattanooga. I do not think she is representing the 
third district of Tennessee in the way she should be, 
Harold Coker is in touch with third district voters. He 
wants to be our congressman and he will make a 
Congress, representing the third district 


McArthur: Gavin, can you give some reasons why 
college students here should re-elecl Marilyn Lloyd lo 

Bledsoe: I think Marilyn Lloyd docs work with the 
people of the third district. Last year she had a 96% 
record on voles. She's been in for 14 years and the 
jobs have increased in the third district. She does have 
the experience and clout of a congressperson who's 

to students before Ihe election? 

Bledsoe: I ihink thai with the two choices we have. 
it jusl depends on who you feel will make you more 
comfortable. The most important thing is choosing 
someone with one's own ideology.

InfoTrac II computer 
popular with students 

By Tammy Wolcott 

A computer is the latest experiment 
in McKee library. The new com- 
puter, the InfoTrac n, "Is on trial 
basis— had to be or we wouldn't 
have it," says Peggy Bennett, head 

Th is computerespecially equipped 
"for searching for journals," says 
Bennett, "arrived on September 22." 
It was scheduled to leave on October 
21, but is still here because the li- 
brarians are comparing the journals 
we have with the ones InfoTrac n 
carries, says Bennett. "A formal 
request has been made to Floyd

The total cost for the InfoTrac II is 
S3,300. including updating, rental 
equipment, maintaining it, and re- 
placing it if it gets lost or stolen, says 

"Quite popular," says Bennett of 
the InfoTrac. "So far, of the evalu- 
ation sheets, with a voting of one- 

five (one being agree strongly, and 
five being disagree strongly) the 
students have voted ones, and a 
single two," said Bennett. 

Three faculty members have also 
commented on the evaluation sheets. 
One put "Buy it— buy more than 
two," while another wrote, "1 like 
it— especially the dedicated keys 
andthereadyprinter." Not one of the 
faculty members signed their name, 
but they did check they were fac jlty . 

The InfoTrac U is located in the pe- 
riodical reading area, against the 
wall separating it from the studying 
area. It takes the average of 5 sec- 
onds, "maybe faster," says Bennett, 
to operate the InfoTrac 11. All a 
person has to do is type in the desired 
information, hit search/enter, and 
wait for the computer to bring it up on 
the screen. You can even prim the 
desired information. The pan that 
takes the longest is the searching for 
the periodicals themselves, says

Parable of educated hands 

Once upon _ 
an institution of higlier learning 
where happy, eager students 
came lo increase their knowl- 
edge and wisdom. Al this 
school, life meant hard study- 
ing, late hours, and long 
classes, but most everyone 
agreed the rewards were worth 
the struggles. 

All types of stutlents came to 
receive knowledge within the 
school's walls. Some were 
sman. Some were dumb. 
Some were big. Some were 
small. But. the most obvious 
dividing feature were the 
Most students were 
righi-handed, although there 
were many left-handed stu-

ambidextrous students 
who used both hands well.

ferences between the lefties 
and the righties. This was an

ill feelings between lefties and 
righlies...or were there? Car- 
tainly no one wanted to be 
called a "handisl." Every 
right-hander could think of at 
least one left-handed friend he 
had, which clearly demon- 
strated his open-mindedness. 

And yet, lefties and righties 
often didn't mingle at this 
school. Some observers cred- 
ited it to culture and back- 
ground. "Left-handers," they 
said, "simply have a different 
background from right-han- 

The division was most no- 
ticeable in the cafeteria. With 
few exceptions, lefties always 
sat with other lefties, and right- 
ies always sal with other right- 
ies. The lefties, who were 
greatly outnumbered by the 
righties, generally had two or 
three tables to themselves on 
one side of the cafeteria. 

Students who could write 
with either hand were at home

ies fell these students should 
make up Uieir minds once and 
for all whether they wanted to 
be right-handed or left-handed. 
Since the lefties were the 
m.inority at this great school, 
programs were instituted to 
increase understanding and 
appreciation of the left-handed 

culture. Oneof tl . _ 
was called "left-handed hisior>' 
week." Special speakers were 
brought in (left-handed, of 
course) to give stirring 
speeches about "'Hand Unity" 
and "The Concept of Universal 
Handhood." These speaker: 
were dynamic, as most left- I

drew enthusiastic "amens" 
from the lef lies who sat near the 

Not everyone thought "left-

good idea. Some grumbled

New computer purchase approved 

B y Kevin Waite 

Soudiem College will be purchasing a 
new HP 3000 mainframe computer for 
administrative purposes. The new Se- 
nes 925 will replace two aging Series HI 
computers purchased in 1977. 

John Beckett, computer service direc- 
tor, said the new computer system is 
needed to handle continued increases in 
administrative processing needs stem- 
ming both from heavier usage and the 
fact more data are added every year in 
the form of student and administrative 

Longer and longer waits for computer 
data processing have been necessary 
because of SC's outdated computer, 
said Beckett. "Our performance meas- 

were not replaced," he said. 

The new Series 925 will cost 
S154.0OO, significantly less than die 
$165,000 paid for die Series in in 1977. 
said Beckett. The computer will be 
capable of "buffered backups" keeping 
the system on-line when data backups 
are made. This will reduce employee 
costs and downtime, according to Beck- 

The new computer, much smaller dian 
its predecessor, is approximately eight 
limes as fast in processing user jobs as 
ihe current Series III systems, said 
Beckett The new system will also have 
1 .5 gigabytes of disk storage space (or 
enough room for all the information you 
can cram on 4.167 floppy disks). 24 
megabytes of memory (equivalent of 
37.5 PC's). 64 terminal ports, and a 600

Issues? Take McDonald. Two of 60- 
year-old McDonald's biggest beefs 

lack of fiscal responsibility and a poor 
educational system, he says. McDonald 
ciled the increase in national debt "from 
S974 billion to S2.4 trillion" during the 
past eight years, money spent on build- 
ing "bigger and better bombs," and stu- 
dents graduating from the educational 
system who arc functionally illiterate. 
To solve the financial problem, 
VcDonald said a national task force 
made up of representatives from all 50 
Slates needs to be established to assess 
the nation's priorities. Only priorities 
should receive funding, he said. 

McDonald called for higher teacher 
and student standards to increase liter- 
acy. Students should "have to meet 
certain standards lo graduate." he said. 
The ability to get things done is one of 
America's greatest strengths, according 
to McDonald. 

Despite this strength. McDonald finds 
"apathy among American people" and 
iheirfailure to "get involved" a growing 
problem for the nation. 

Although the election is over. 
McDonald tells students, "Take an in- 
terest in national affairs. Educated citi- 
zens make a big difference,,, our country 
is what the people are." 

Hope lies with the people,,, where it's 
always been. Without ideas, opinions,

Instead of luminaries the likes of

students staved off a chilly Sunday 
breeze to witness the final round of the 
one-stop S.C. Pro-circuii tour. 

Pollom overcame Lambeth 5-7. fr4. 
6-4 in a test of mental strength and sheer 
willpower. Both players paced the 
game with crisp serves and volleys.

games in the first set. Al 5-5, Lambelh 
broke Pollom in the 1 lih game that went 
to deuce four limes— he took the set 7- 



over to the second, although this time it 
was in Pollom's favor as he broke 
Lambelh twice. In the last game. 
Pollom's chip shots and slices drew 
Lambelh to the net. but Lambeth caught 
the tape on a couple of critical half- 
volleys and drop shots including one 
set-point that ended the second set in 
Pollom's favor. 6-4.

Southern volleyball season begins 

By Ben Keppler 

The 1988 volleyball season has begun at Southern College. 
One hundred forty people signed up to play, wi" 
them showing up for "A league" tryouts. This 
highest participation levels in years. 

With enough players to field five "A league" teams (one 

more than last year), the skill level is also on the rise says 

Danny Hernandez, an "A league" co-captain. "The level of 

y should be really high this year," he said, 

If all the players who signed up participate, the level of 
competition should also be high among the 14 "B league- 
teams There have been some problems in prior years with 
players not showing up for their games, but the Southern

Hey Still Coughing, 

Most of Ihe vacuums being used are brand new- 
bought last year. Apparently, they have been abused 
and misused by students. Some of the vacuums, 
unable to take the abuse any longer, are left with no 
other choice than lo throw up dusi all over the room. 
Treat them right and they'll work perfectly. 

Closed library 

Hey Dude, 

It has recently been brought to my attention that 
certain people want ihe Religion Center Library closed 
lo siudenls. I thought that was why the library was 
there. I understand there is no way to secure the books 
in the room. The school could hire a student to work 
as a librarian — that may solve the issue and add an- 
other job to the list SC offers.

Hey Trying lo Help, 

The Religion Center Library has always been closed 
to students. The library is for faculty members work-

iBand members dissatisfied 
ritii Friends' performance 


vid Hamilton 

■ Friends, a newly-formed contem- 
Borary band composed of Southern 
gollege students, "stunk" in their 
performance Saturday, says 
Ikck James, one of the band's lead 

j"Yes, it stunk," said James. "On a 
fcale of one to ten. the performance 
IS a three. I look at it as a learning 

(Although there were several rea- 

? for the band's poor perform- 

_e, the biggest problem was the 

■Ib•.^ of keyboard player Marty Fuller 

within days of the concert, said 
"It was very upsetting," said 

Fuller has been on citizenship pro- 
bation for several weeks. During 
election night, Nov. 8, he did not 
check into the dormitory until early 
the next morning. Fuller had not 
notified the front desk or a dean. 
Fuller said he was working for the 
Harold Coker campaign and ran into 
unexpected problems. 

Fuller was banned from perform- 
ing in the Friends concert held in lies 
PE Center by Dean Ron Qualley. 

"They didn't want me representing 
the school by playing in the band," 
said Fuller. "Bui, they were only 
hurting students who came to lis- 

However, students should blame 
Fuller if they did not enjoy Satur- 
day's concert, says Qualley. 

"The bottom line is he screwed up 
and disappointed everyone," said 
Qualley. "It's not my problem. It's 
his responsibility." 

"Just once this year," continued 
Qualley, "I would like to have some- 
one come into my office and say, 
'Hey, Dean, I screwed up.' But it's 
always my fault or someone else's 

According to James, the fmal 
blame should not be on Fuller be- 
cause more consideration should 
have been given to the band and all 
the preparation spent on the concert. 
"We should be blaming the admin- 
istrators involved for not giving 
more consideration to the group," 
said James, "and not wonying about 
their precious reputations." 

The concert opened with five num- 
bers by Southern students before 
Friends began their program. 

Friends performed "Arms of 
Love" and "Everywhere I Go" by 
Amy Grant, "My Town" by an un- 
known author, and "Pharaoh, Phar- 
aoh" to the tune of the Beach Boy's 

Rene Nicholas tells Pharoali to 'Let my 
people go, mil at the Friends concert 
held Saturday afternoon in the gym. 
"Louie, Louie." 

Although James admits that "Phar- 
aoh, Pharaoh" probably would not 
have been played had it gone through 
the screening committee, the song 
was needed. 

"I think we need some relief on 
Sabbath afternoon to say 'uuh!' and 
wake up," said James. "The song has 
a message." 

The Friends band is made up of 
Kelly Rufo, Doug Prait, Gunnar 
Beccacece, Chris Sepulveda, Marty 
Fuller, and Jack James. Sepulveda 
came up with the idea of starting a 
band at the semester's beginning. 
The band is a sort of realization of 
each band member's dream, says 

"Each member had this dream and 
wanted to do it," said Sepulveda. 

Uccenf editor resigns at semester's end 

By Debbie Clark 

Kevin Waite submitted his resig- 
nation as editor of the Southern Ac- 
cent, to be effective after the Dec. 8 
I Christmas edition of the student 
I newspaper. 

"It [the Accent\ has received my 

I priority attention (40-plus hours 

ich week) this semester, but my 

I wife, studies, job hunting, work in 

I the hospital, house remodeling, and 

I writing deserve more attention next

Waite did not run for the office of 

VSouihcrn Accent editor. Former 

I editor Jim Huenergardt was elected 

Accent editor by the student body 
last spring but quit to concentrate on 
completing his classload. Waite, 
who agreed to be Huenergardt's 
associate editor, accepted the posi- 
tion oi Accent editor midsummer. 

"I took the position because 1 knew 
it would be good experience," said 
Waite, "but it's harder than I antici- 
pated to do a good job on the paper- 
without consistent student help in 
meeting deadlines. Another big 
problem is lack of administrative 
support for the journalism program trickles down in student 
opinions and altitudes about news." 

The 5oHf/!e''''4«-e/if will notecase 
publication, however to date a 

placement has not been found for the 
position of editor. A potential candi- 
date would be subject to approval of 
Lhe Student Association president, a 
check of GPA and citizenship siahjs, 
and approval of the student senate. 

"I'm very disappointed that Kevin 
is leaving because I feel he's done a 
grealjob overall with the paper. He 
has worked really hard to put out a 
good paper," said S.A. President 
Mark Waldrop. 

Waite graduated from SC in De- 
cember of 1 984 with an A.S. degree 
in nursing. He worked at Diagnostic 
Hospital as a registered nurse and 
then returned to Southern College as 

Last year Waite interned for (

duties included copy editing and 

Waite will graduate this May with 
B.A. degrees in Journalism and

avid interest in broadcasting." says 
Waite. He plans to pursue a career in 
writing— possibly Christian drama 
or news commentaries.

about working on the Accent, Waiie 
says it was satisfying to see the qual-

Assembly credit 
indulgence sale 

Despite improvements in the assembly program here 
at Southern, required attendance remains a major 
source of contention — especially the paternal threat of 
a $25 re-registration fee for the non-compliants among 

The neutering of assemblies by using a portion for 
"cultural" events and a portion for "religious" inspira- 
tion, while it may be popular with some students and 
faculty members, clouds the issue of where we're headed 
uith this thing and why it's required. 

Take a recent example. Did you see the thoughtful 
addition of another chapel credit option in last week's 
Accent? No, your eyes didn't deceive you. In what must 
certainly be a most unusual hvist to the whole charade of 
required worship/assembly attendance, we can get 
credit by forking over $6 and going to the theater. The 
"cultural" Chades Dickens play "A Christmas Carol" will 
be performed at the Chattanooga Little Theater. Tickets 
cost $6 and transportation is included — nice touch. 
Small price to pay for a Southern College indulgence. 
Even Tetzel would have been envious, (If you're not into 
Dickens and you haven't met your quota, never fear. 
You can always opt for the Big Indulgence — pay $25 
and skip all assemblies. Just look for the bill on your 
statement burled somewhere in the several thousand 
dollars' worth of tuition, room, and board.) 

Yes, it's nice to have options. The best one is free 
choice. Students in their late teens and early twenties 
should be quite capable of deciding where and how to 
gain cultural education and spiritual inspiration. Wc 
suggest our needs would be better served if mandatory 
assembly attendance was eliminated and we were en- 
couraged to make these decisions on our own.

[draws fire from Rozell, Hanson 


h Stevens 

Jan Haluska. English departmenl pro- 
fessor, is concerned about sludenis' edu- 
cation and wants a policy to keep stu- 
dents in class. "There is a need for a 
consistent absence policy.., a central

things to do than "putting little green

Glorify God, encourage people; 
Patti talks about her ministry 

By Mike Magursky 

When Sandi Patti first entered college, her 
ambition in life was lo teach a high school music 
class. Now. after nine years of ministry and nine 
albums. Patti is known as Ihc voice of inspira- 
lional music. She has won 19 Dove Awards, four 
Grammy Awards, and released four gold albums. 
Many Americans first heard of .Patti when her 
recording of "The Star Spangled Banner" was 
used in the closing ceremonies of the 1986 ABC 
"Liberty Weekend." Since then, she hasappeared 
on the Tonight Show. ABC World News Tonight, 
and this year's "Walt Disney World's 4th of July 

The Accenl recently interviewed Patti on her 
ministry in contemporary Christian music. 

Accent: At what point did the Lord make it clear 
to you that contemporary Christian music was His 
plan for your life? 

Patti: I never really dreamed that I'd be doing 
what I'm doing now. John, my husband, and I put 
together a small lour in California in 1 980. At that 
point, we told the Lord that if He wanted us to 
pursue it. we were ready. Not long after that, Bill 
Gaither called and asked if I would sing backup 
for the Gaither Trio. That confirmed our calling. 
Accenl: How much have you changed in your 
nine years of ministry? How much have you 
stayed the same? 

Patti: My hope is that I have become an even 
stronger believer in what God can and will do if 
we allow Him to woric in our lives. I am more 
relaxed in the studio than ever, and I am probably ..."-^ ■ 1 have definitely become 

much busier as my family has almost doubled in 
size since the birth of our new twins almost a year 
ago. I have stayed the same in my mission: my 
music glorifies God and encourages people. 

Acce/iCYouhavesaidyourministry is centered 
.vound those who already know the Lord. Are 
there any plans to open new avenues m your 
ministry to reach those who do not already know 
the Lord? 

Patti; My very strong Christian lyrics are appro- 
priate for those I am singing for, but I would have 
to soften them to get any kind of secular radio 
airplay. That just isn't something that I'm willing 
to do. I understand that my music isn't accepted 
by a lot of people, and that's fine. I used lo feel that 
I had to do everything— to minister to people on 
the street and reach the unsaved. But here's where 
I belong. 

Accent: Some of the songs you have sung are 
not quite "traditional" church music. Songs like 
"Someone Up There Loves Me" and "Shine 
Down" are a little more contemporary than a song 
like "In Heaven's Eyes." Do you consider all of 
your music appropriate for a worship setting? 
Why or why not? 

Patti: I would like to think that most of my 
music can be used for a form of worship. How- 
ever, different churches and denominations have 
different worship formats, some being more con- 
servative and others less conservative. So, it is 
really up to the worship leader to decided the 
appropriateness of my music for the specific set- 

Sandi Patti 

Accent: Are there any songs that you wish you| 
had never recorded? 

Patti: Not really. I may like one song a little I 
better than another, however. There has always I 
been a lot of time and energy spent choosing a ' 
song before I record. 

Accenl: If I mentioned the name Sandi Patti to c 
friend, what would you want his first response tc 

Patti: I hope that they would mention some 
thing to the effect that my faith is firmly planted ir 
the Word of God and that my desire to do His work | 

Patti is currently on the Fall "leg" of her 1 
89 "Praise Glorious" Worid Tour. When the 
portion of the tour is completed, she will havel 
performed in 1 20 cities. The tour makes a stop in I

"Perhaps the school should employ

Floyd Greenleaf, vice president for 
Academic Administration, believes sm- 
dents should go to their teachers lo ex- 
cuse absences. 

Don Malhis, the dean servmg on the 
commitiee, supports the idea. "I think 
absences should be more the teacher's 
discretion. They know their siudenis 
belter than Ihe committee," he said. 

But Haluska said he doesn't have lime 
to talk to students about their absences. 

Smith agrees. "I don't want a letter 
from their mother or their nurse. Those 
in the real world don't want to hear why 
you were absent. They'rejustunhappy

students since many balls were lost in the

The class only used the course to prac- 
dee their chip shot. Evans expressed his 
concern in doing more saying. "If we 
slice or hook our drive, somebody could 
get hit on the track. It just wasn't safe!"

she said. McClarty listed three advan- 

touring groups that must miss classes 
when they go on crips (teachers don t 
currendy receive these lists). Health 
Service can "differentiate between a 
student whosteeps in and says 'I'm sick'

"Todd and I were formally introduced in

Kevin asked Shelley out for the banquet

Unconditional love 

By Lisa DiBiase 

My first memories of Dena are very 
hazy. I was probably no more than 
Four or maybe five years old. When I was 
with Dena I felt very safe, happy, and loved. 
I She has known me since I emerged into the 
I world, and has always been a very special 
1 person in my life. Dena is my mom's 
I youngest sister — my aunt. 

;ually was able to see Dena only on 
I holidays and during the summer. She lived 
in a small town in North Carolina— I was 
in Maryland. So, Easter and Thanksgiving 
were in Wilmington, N.C.; Christmas was 
in Maryland. Dena lived with my grand- 
mother, Granjuan, in a beautiful old home 
on the coast. 
Christy, my older sister, and I would lay 
in bed the night before trips to North Caro- 
lina, giggling in anticipation. 
On every visit to Dena's house, Christy 
I and I flew into the house straight to "our" 
rooms, searching for the first scavenger 
hunt clue. The first clue gave hints where 
the next note was. At each location we were 
awarded a wonderful little prize — a pack of 
gum, crayons, a coloring book, or stickers. 
After the big hunt, we snuggled in 
Granjuan's arms and jumped all over Dena. 
Most aunts want you to "act like a lady." 
Thiswasnotahuge concern ofDena's. She 
opted for having fun as a number one pri- 
ority — riding bikes, burping after a meal, 
jumping on her bed — but she didn't espe- 
cially like exaggerated gas-passing. 

Part of the fun of our visits was that my 
sister and 1 were allowed to go 
anywhere.. .providing we were with Dena. 
At least one adventure would be a hike to 
the local 7-Eleven. We climbed through 
shrubs, scrounged around bus stops — look- 
ing for returnable bottles. By the time we 
reached our destination, we usually had 
between 400 and $1 of our very own 
"earned" money, which we spent on 
"Archies," cupcakes, or Slurpees. After- 

Love came down at Christmas. 
It's an age-old story, but one 
with special meaning to a young 
girl and her sister. For them, 
unconditional love found 
expression in the life of Dena. 

wards, we gleefully told to our parents of 
our financial independence. 

While all these things made Dena a won- 
derful friend, unconditional love is the mam 
element that will always hold me close to 

"when'l was little it would be a comfort- 
ing hug after a frequent clumsy accdenl. 
When I was a little older it would mean 
loving me throughout the gawlcy, gangly 

-clunk" stage. Throughout ray 21 years, 
Dena's love has been a dependable, stable, 
consistent support system. 

I wish everyone could have a Dena. 
Maybe we can at least strive to be a Dena 
to someone, sometime. 

Last week 1 received a letter from Dena. 

She wanted to know what I wanted for 
Christmas. I wonder what 1 should get for 

Christmas toast 
to home, family 

Family is what Christmas is all about. It doesn't matter 
whether you're a missionary in Korea or a student who's 
traveled thousands of miles for an education here at 
Southern— when this time of the year rolls around, 
thoughts turn homeward. 

Mom, dad, brother, sister, gramps and grams, aunts 
and uncles all seem a little closer— a little more real 
somehow- It gives you a certain feeling. Like the feeling 
you get when whiffing something good cooking just 
before a meat. You're hungry, there's food, and every- 
thing is okay- 
Christmas spawns a special homesickness, making the 
love circle even tighter and bringing snippets of the past 
back to life once more. 

Remember when you were a little kid pressing your 
nose against the frozen window, trying to stay awake and 
catch a glimpse of Santa when he came to your house? 
You woke up in bed and always wondered if Santa had 
tucked you in. 

Remember the caroling, the blinking lights, popcorn 
strings, dad "helping" you trim the tree, mom's "best in 
the world" pumpkin pies, and wondering what to get 
your little brother for Christmas (the one you always 
teased so unmercifully)? 

You learned about Christmas through the years: how 
Santa doesn't really make home deliveries, what Christ- 
mas really stands for, and how much a loving family 

It's no wonder we think of home around this time of the 
year. In a world of superficiality, greed, and commercial- 
ism, there still are a few things left untarnished. Here's 
a toast to Christmas, love, and family.

Christmas tree 
lit at Southern 

By Valerie Long 

II is cold and clear out. The si; 
permanently etched in the night sky. 
has gathered around a beautiful trei 
and proud, with strings of light 
downilssides. Christmas carols drift through 
the crisp air. It's a perf'ect nighlfor sharing the 
spirit and joy of Christinas with friends. 

The sound of sirens, wailing their way to- 
ward campus, pierces the air. Aboard the fire- 
truck, Santa makes his yearly stop for the light- 
ing of the Christinas tree at Southern College. 
Adults revert to childhood as they eagerly 
fight and grab for the candy that Santa throws 
10 the crowd. When the Christmas tree lights 
come on, the tree glows, filling the cold night 
with the warmth of a thousand twinkhng 
lights. Candles in the windows of the admini- 
stration building lend a cozy feeling to the 
evening. The only thing missing is snow.

WSMC's Christmas season begins the 
18th of December. Programming from 
then until Christmas day will include a 
variety of holiday specials. 

The Christmas programs officially 
begin at 8 p.m. on a Sunday evening. 
The station's listeners, says WSMC's 
Program Director Gerald Peel, appreci- 
ate the special programming during the 
holidays. He says correspondence al- 
ways increasesduring and after the holi- 
days. "It's important for us to be their 
Christmas family," says Peel. 

New Chrismias music will be played 
this year. "We've got some really won- 
derful things that have come in on com- 
pact disc diat are really going to be nice 
forthe holidays, "says Peel. He believes 
everyone enjoys Christmas music and 
the memories it brings. But, he adds, 
"Sometimes there are people who really 
resent it if you play Christmas music loo 
early," He says you just have to "feel 
your way" and decide when is the right 

Christmas passages from the Bible

uniquely captinre a person's ear. 

WSMC will be airing many different 
types of Christmas programs including 
choirs, seasonal readings, and special 
narratives of plays and holiday memo-

Eye on the church 

Bietz assesses results 
from SDA media blitz 

By C. David Wingate 

While laying back in your favorite 
you may have seen the adver- 
isements on television and exclaimed. 
Hey Mom. look... we're on TV!" 

Throughout 1987. the Seventh-day 
\dventist Church was involved in the 
idvertising campaign "For Kid's Sake." 

affecting the quality of life for young 
people and their families. The advertis- 
ing series included prime-lime specials, 
commercial vignettes, campaign image 

The advertising series 
included prime-time spe- 
cials, commercial vi- 
gnettes, campaign image 
announcements, public 
service announcements, 
and news stories. 

According lo Gordon Bielz, pastor of 
the Collegedale Church, local station 
WTVC-TV9 purchased the marketing 
idea from Weslinghouse Broadcasting 
Corporation and asked area Adventisi 
churches to help sponsor it. Sponsorship 
and air lime was shared wiih the Ameri- 
can National Bank and the local distribu- 
tors of TVA Electric Power Board. 

'To my knowledge no other SDA 
church group has done this in a major 
metropolitan area," said Bietz. 

Messages broadcast to the Chat- 
tanooga area included, "It's lime we 
recognize kids for what they really are— 
The, Future." This slogan accompanied 
a 30-second '■por Kid's Sake" vignette. 
Immediately following the vignettes 
were ads for 5-Day Stop Smoking Plans, 
blood donation diives, community in- 
s, and ads expressing 
d promoting Seventh- 
the "Caring Church." 

Two surveys were taken— one before 
the campaign and one after — to check 
the impact of the awareness campaign. 

It was found thai while 65% of the 
people interviewed had heardof the "For 
Kid'sSake" campaign, only l8%recog- 
nized the SDA church as one of its spon- 
sors. Whileihiswasthehigheslpercent- 
age recognition among the three spon- 
sors, it appeared the message of the 
campaign got through, but not the con- 
nection with Ihe Advenlist church. 

Most of those surveyed had at least 
heard of Adventisis before thecampaign 
began so this left little room for expan- 
sion of name recognition. 

In ihe post-campaign survey, people 
reported knowing more positive aspects 
ofourchurch. Oneareain particular was 
the recognition of Adventisis as a caring 
people- Thisjumpedfrom7.77Din 1987 
to 28,7^^ in 1988. Those claiming lo 
know very little about Seventh-day

move misunderstandings about the 
Adventisi church.

New roofing, repairs, 
remodeling planned 

By Tina Frist 

Completing the renovation of Lynn 
Wood Hall is a high priority for the 
Committee of 100 this year, bui mem- 
bers also voted recently to contribute 
another 570,000 for additional work on 
Ihe Southern College campus. 

New projects supported by the com- 
mittee include: re-roofing the William 
A. lies Physical Education Center 
(525,000 allocated), remodeling in the 
Conference Center (525,000), and re- 
pairing the columns of Wright Hall 

Southern's P.E. building was the com- 
mittee's first project in 1965. "The 
school desperately needed a gymna-

The media campaign was dropped af-

approximately 550.000 for the entire 
year. Also, according to telephone sur- 
veys conducted in the Chattanooga area, 
"feedback results were not as dramatic 
as we would have liked in terms of the 
public's altitudes toward the SDA

Gymnasium addition may become a reaiity

ow become a 
reality. The P.E. Depanment received 
inlormal approval from adminisiraiion 
for ihe proposed addilion to the gymna- 
sium. The estimated cost is between 
SI20.000 and $150,000. Department 
Chairman Phil Carver said. "I think it 
will happen real soon because we need 
the facility badly." 

The addilion will consist of two walls 
and a roof starting at the end of the 
racquetball courts, forming a right angle 
ai the eastern comer, then connecting to 
the gym offices at the other end. A new 
entrance will be built from the parking 
lot, which will lose less than 1 spaces. 

The 8.000-square-foot addition will 
have two floors. The fu^t will perma- 
nently house the gymnastic team and 
serve as an aerobic room with full length 
mirrors and ballet bars. A Jacuzzi and a

of what we've done...

A larger physiology lab will finally be

now occupies to ihecurrent weight room 

team will allow equipment to last 10 
times longer and save Ihe department 
hundreds of dollars in repair costs, ac- 
cording to Garver. The team could also 
work more efficiently if not forced to vie 
for space during volleyball and basket- 
ball games or during setup for a sched- 
uled program. 

A P,E, department survey, taken re- 
cently in the Collegedale community, 
showed that approximately 50 people 
are seriously interested in an aerobics 
program. For lack of scheduling time, 
space, and privacy, aerobics hasn't been 
implemented. Garver says the program 
would generate revenue when installed, 
lalso provide dressing 
forstage perform- 
ers. Garver says, "It's negative PR and

P.E. majors to do specialized research. 

A kiddie gymnastic program would 
also be set up. "The facility will be in use

Jesus the Jew 

He gave 

By Jack Blanco 

I n recent years Jewish scholars 
-■-have openly admired Jesus the 
Jew. Not only do they accept Him 

whom ihcy should listen to, but also 
as possibly being the Messiah. Such 
scholarly sentiments are most pro- 
nounced in Israel and in the United 
Slates, where Jews have attained 
control over their own destiny and 
have found a greater acceptance by 

Professor Geza Vermes of Oxford 
University, in his paper on 'Jesus 
the Jew," contrasts the medieval 
Jewish portrait of Jesus as an apos- 
tate with the nineteenth century 
acceptance of Jesus as a great teacher 
of ethics. Then he gives his own 
opinion and portrays Jesus as an 
unsurpassed master of laying bare 
the inmost core of spiritual truth and 
of bringing every issue back to the 
essence of religion and man's re- 
lationship to God. 

David Flusser, professor of reli- 
gious history at Hebrew University 
in Jerusalem and a Biblical archae- 
ologist, goes even further than 
Vermes and says he doubts that many

How federal income taxes affect you 

By Kimberly Arellano 

For many taxpayers, 
of financial reappraisal. Thi 
is designed to make you, 
taxpayer, aware of how 
affect you, your personal tax choices for 
the 1988 lax year, and of how your ac- 
tions will affect your federal income tax 

y dependents. 

The use of exemptions in (he lax sys- 
tem is based in part on the concept thai a 
taxpayer with a small amount if income 
should beexempi from income taxation. 
Every individual taxpayer is allowed an 
exemption that frees a specified amount 

of in 

le from lax. In 1! 


it file a 

come have been received. The general 
rule is that a tax return is required for 
every individual who has taxable in- 
come that equals or exceeds the sum of 
the exemption amount plus the appli- 
cable standard deduction. 

For example, a single taxpayer who is 
a student and under age 65 must file a tax 
return In 1988 if gross income equals or 
I exceeds $4,950 (SI .950 exemption plus 
S3,000 standard deduction). 

Even if you are not required to file a 
reium but had tax withheld from your 
pay, you need to file a return to obtain a 
refund for the federal tax withheld. 

le exceptions si 

aiiu tciiain employee benefits, 
general rule is that any transacuuu t»i 
event that increases your wealth, 
whether in cash or other property, is 
gross income. 

Examples of items that a student would 
include in gross income are wages from 
a job and interest earned at the credit 
union on his checking account. 

Before February 1, 1989, you should 
receive a siatemenl (W-2) from your 
g your 1988 gross 
X withheld. 

TAX TIP: Here is one area in which 
students have a tax planning choice to 

Tlie lax law stales that a taxpayer can- 
not take an exemption/or himself if he is 
claimed as a dependent on another tax- 
More than likely, your parents can 
claim you on their tax return as a de- 
pendent. You must meet the test of a de- 
pendent (yourparents provide over one- 
half of your support, you are a child or 
stepchild of your parents, you are in 
school fiill-lime for five months of the 
year, you did not file a joint return with 
a spouse except to obtain the same re- 
fund as if you had filed married filing 
separately, and you are a U.S. citizen). 
If you. the student, have a taxable 
gross income of S3. 000 or less, it is wiser 
to allow yourparents to claim your ex- 
emption amount. You will ftave no tax 
liability and your parents can reduce 
their taxable income by $1 .950. Even if 
you earn more than $3,000. you are 
more than likely in a lower tax bracket 
than your parents. You should still allow 
them your exemption. 

If byallowingthemuseofyour exemp- 
tion, your lax liability increases because 
your gross income is more than $3,000 
(and even then your tax liability will only 
increase by a maximum of $293 which ii 
15% of $1,950). make arrangements for 

The standard deduction is a specified 
amount set by Congress and is depend- 
ent on the filing status of the taxpayer. In 
the past, Congress has attempted to set 
the tax-free amount represented by the 
standard deduction approximately to an 
estimated poverty level, but it has not 
always been consistent in doing so. The 
standard deduction in 1988 for a single 
taxpayer under 65 years of age and not 
blind is S3,000. 

The standard deduction is compared to 

1. Your filing si 

2. You do note 

3. You are not t 

4. Your taxable income is less than 

5. You had only wages, salaries, and 
tips, and your taxable interest was $400 

You may obtain (he form by receiving 
it in the mail from the IRS around Ihe 
firstof theyear. oryoucan pick it up at 

r of ii 

r the 

standard deduction. Students whose 
itemized deductions are less than the 
standard deduction will use the standard 
deduction rather than itemizing. 

Example: Student A, who is single, has 
total itemized deductionsof S650(repre- 
sentedbyiitheofS400and the allowable 
portion of her car loan interest of $250). 
Student A's standard deduction is 
$3,000 for 1988. Student A will com- 
pute her taxable income for 1988 using 
the standard deduction of $3,000 since it 
exceeds her itemized deductions of 

TAX TIP: If your itemized deductions 
approximately equal the standard de- 
duction inmostyears, you could signifi- 
cantly reduce your taxes over the long- 
term by arranging to have most of your 
itemized expenses fall in alternate years. 
This strategy, known as "bunching," 
produces tax savings from itemizing in 
the years when your expenses are 
bunched. In the off years, you are able to 
use the standard deduction as before but 
with fewer unusable deductions. 

You compute your tax liability by 
starling with your gross income, subtract 
your personal exemplion and standard 
deduction and you get your taxable in- 
come. You then use the tax tables to 
compute your tax liability. 

Example: Student B earns S3,600 from 
his part-time job al Vegiburgers-R-Us,

$500. Snident B's father will claim

Mental mania sweeps Southern; 
7th annual College Bowl begins 

Those who like to work up an intellec- 

jusi enjoy watching game shows like 
Jeopardy andTic-Tac-Dough will enjoy 
the seventh annual Student Association- 
sponsored College Bowl season. It 
began Monday and will continue for 
seven weeks. The games are held on 
Mondays and Thursdays from 5:15 pm 
to 5:45 pmin the back of the cafeteria. 
Sieve Kreimer. SA executive vice 
president, organized the twelve teams. 
Each team consists of four players plus 

Stan Hobbs, dean of men, along with 
his fellow student, Alex Lian, ap- 
proached Ben McAnhur with the idea of 
an SC College Bowl in 1983. Mc Arthur 
was favorable to the idea, and the first 
College Bowl was held that school year. 

Hobbs said, 'The best players are the 
people who are not just good students, 
but wtio are willing to put their reputa- 
tion on the line and miss questions." He 
added, "If you know you are brilliant — 
a 4.0 student, the best in the class, then 
U s an uncomfonable thing to do." 

Mrylenc Marsa, a senior math whiz 
who played College Bowl last year said, 
"I like the competition, being put on the 

spot.., and the time pressure." 

The audience, made up of students 
who watch while eating their supper, 
alsoenjoythegames. The moderators — 
Jan Haluska, Ben McArthur. and Stan 
Hobbs— add spice by throwing in an 
occasional one-liner at opportune mo- 
ments. Kreimer, who played last year,

played the game last year, 

said, "It's fun, like

it will be possible to lose once and siill 
make it to the finals. 

A toss-up question begins each match, 
and the 

starts the process over again. 

Hobbs recommends the following 
partem for a well-rounded team. The 
fir^i player should be a history major, 
because history covers important people 
and events in lime from religion, poli- 
tics and science to geographic changes 
and' current events. The next player 
should be a science major with wide 
knowledge in biology, chemistry, phys- 
ics andmadi. Thethirdplayershouldbe 
an English major with emphasis on lit- 
erature and grammar, including a back- 
ground in the fine arts. The fourth 
member can be any major, but must 
possess a fortitudal intellect ranging 
from business to sports to current events. 
four players, ready to pmch hit in a

seven seconds. If they miss thcquestion, 
the other team gets a shot at answering it. 
The correct team has a chance to earn 
additional points by answering

Clark is planning to put out 12-page

We could all learn 
by reviewing our 
kindergarten days 

You're never too old to leam. Every truly wise person will 
admit that no matter how much you experience, there are 
always more lessons and surprises ahead. Learning is impor- 
tant, but it isn't everything. There is something else at least 
as important as learning: remembering. 

We, seasoned college students, have become so caught up 
in learning that we often forget the fundamentals. Think back 
toyour kindergarten days. Practically every principleyou ever 
needed to know was introduced in kindergarten. Wisdom 
wasn't fourxl in complicated, intellectual textbooks. Instead, 
it was in the sandbox at nursery school. 

We learned to get along with everybody. To put things back 
in their places. To share all the toys. To say sony for hurting 
somebody. To play fair. To laugh and sing aiKl paint and 
create and work a little every day. 

We learned to take a nap everyday after lunch. We learned 
not to take things tfiat don't belong to us. To live a balanced 
life. To wash the hands before eating. To watch for traffic 
before crossing a street. To be silent when someone else is 
talking. To be aware of wonder. 

Remember saying your first memory verse. Mom was so 
proud when she heard it. Somewhere in kindergarten was 
found everything you needed to know. Think what a better 
worid it wodd be if everyone had a half-hour recess at 11 
o'dock and a nap after lunch. Or if there was a world-wkle 
policy that everybody put things back where they belong and 
everybody cleans up their own messes. 

AtkJ, no matter how old you are, when you go outside it is 
best to hoW hands and stick together.

Lack of information about Student 
Services creates a misunderstanding of 
the depanmenl, says Vice President of 
Student Services William Wohlers. 

When asked about the function of the 
depanmenl, students often give blank 
stares. Some see the department primar- 
ily as disciplinarian. 

Wohlers says .some of the ambiguity 
surrounding the department arises from 
a combination of things. For example, 
the average student probably doesn't 
understand the workings of ihe admini- 
stration, which makes Student Services 
just another piece of the puzzle lost in 
Wright Hall. He agrees that a handbook 
explainingthedepartment would benefit 
students who are concerned, but is not 
sure when or if such a handbook will be

Clark replaces Waite as new Accent editor 

B> David Hamilton 

Upon Kevin Waile's resignalion as iJie 
5oM(Aern/lccfnieditor in December, his 
associate editor Debbie Clark has moved 
in to fill the empty position. 

When approached wiih the idea of 
being the new Southern Acceni editor, 
Clark's first response was negative. "I 
didn't warn lo be ihe editor ihis semes- 
ter ' said Clark, "but I did want to con- 
According to Clark, she wanted more 
exfjerience before becoming editor and 
didn't want 10 drop lo a class load of nine 
hour^, which she felt woiild be necessary 
to be a good editor. 
Now Clark is taking a three-hour di- 

rected study, in conjunction with her 
workonihe,4cce/i/, These hours and the 
encouragemeni from Mark Waldrop. 
S.A. President; Kevin Waite, formerAc- 
cent editor; and Ron Smith, assistant 
professor of journalism, gave her the 
boost to accept the paper's position, 
according to Clark. 

Also, because the Southern Accent 
will be coming out every two weeks 
instead of weekly, there is more time to 
prepare for each issue, said Claik. 

Clark also said that before making her 
final decision, she found a staff she felt 
would be committed to putting out a 
quality paper. 

"Although there are no senior journal- 
ism students on the paper. I feel I have a 

reliable staff," said Clark, "Without 
their enthusiasm and committment, we 
wouldn't have a paper today," she adds. 

Before Clark came to Southern Col- 
lege, she worked as layout assistant, as 
assistant editor, and as editor of the Bass 
Memorial Academy yearbook. She also 
reported for the academy's newspaper, 
the Nutcracker, for two years. 

Widi her added experience last semes- 
ter as the Acfcnf' J assistant editor, Clark 
feels this year's paper will be great. 

"I think the paper is going to be a lot 
more student orientated," said Clark. 
"We are dedicated to drawing from a 
larger percentage of the student body 
and making it the student's paper, not 
just the stafTs paper." 

Profile: Lydia Rose 

By Kim Thedford 

Lydia Rose, a woman who loves 
challenges and enjoys a fast-paced 
life, is a dean of women at Southern 
College. She says she hasn't been 
bored yet. 

Rose has various responsibilities. 
She's in charge of Ihe dorm mailroom, 
lakes care of the worship petitions, and 
makes sure all of the girls get cards on 
their birthdays. She's also a sponsor of 
SC's Beta Kappa Tau. an organization 
for black students. But she says that 
most of all she's a confidant. "! have 
a lot of arms. To some I am a mother 
and to others I am a sister. Some girls 

says Rose. 

Rose attended Oakwood College in 
Huntsville, Alabama. She met her 
husband. Carlton, while working on a 
degreeinpublicrelations. Carllonde- 
cided to finish his education at SC and 
tliey moved to Collegedalc in Septem- 
ber of 1986. 

Rose initially took a position in the 
public relations department here. But 
as lime passed, she realized she needed 
a change. Widi support from her hus- 
band and her mother, she accepted the 
position of assistant dean suggested by 
Jeanne Davis. 

"I suggested that Lydia put in her res- 
ume and tryforthe job. Hiked herand 
felt she could do a good job," Davis 

Although she enjoys her job, there 
are areas that she dislikes. Anytime 
she has to approach a girl widi "do's"

easy? Rose says. "I wanted a job thai

Older dorm students 
lose special privileges

Students 23 years of age and older are 
no longer automatically given Ihe privi-

excused from dorm worships.

In previous years only the women's 
dorm had the privileges, but that has 
t)een changed to achieve unity between 
the dorms. Dean Engel said seniors and 

and higher are allowed a one-hour later 
curfew, but all students are required to 
attend worship. 

William Wohlers, director of Student 
Services, said thai he was not directly 
involved in the decision made by both 
dorms. "I do feel that diere are other 
ways students can receive the pnvilege. 

and that is by maintaining aGPA of 3.25. 
This gives the students incentive to get 
good grades." 

"I think the rule is rediculous." said 
Ann Owen, a graduating senior who is 
25, "Onceyou'rethatageyouknowwhal 
your priorities are, I think this [rule) is 
only trying to make grown people into 
children again." 

However, Freshman Oi\da Flaquel 
diinks the new rules arc consistent, if not 
fair, "I feel like we are all mamre college

privilege, then none of us should," 

Ron Qualley. dean of men, said. 
"There's not a whole lot to do after 12 
o'clock without gening into trouble." 
But he brings out a point from the Spirit 
of Prophesy on the subject: that older 
kids should be treated differently from 
younger ones. "This is important for 
everyone, and maybe the deans should

Most SC students 
dread dorm curfew

Itis 1 1:10pm on die campus of South-

On Sunday dim Thursday die curfew 
for bodi Talge and Tliaicher halls is 1 1

As dreadful as a curf^ew may sound, 
there are ways of beating the system. 
Sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a 
grade point average of 3.25 or above are 
allowed to stay out an extra hour past 
curfew every night except Friday or Sat- 

urday. This rule does not apply to fresh-

matically allowed an extra hour, regard- 
less of their GPA. 

As with all rules. Uiere is a penalty if 
curfew is missed. The students are al-

in one hour past curfew, whereas a minor 
violation is coming in one-half hour past 
curfew. Should a student receive a major 
violation, or three minor violations, he or

Library saves 
$1,500 on books 

By Taminy Wokolt 

Head librarian hopes for $16,200 
in refund for bad catalog system 

By Tammy WoIcoH 

McKee Library is looking for a new 
computer system to replace Sidney, 
which has served the library since April 
1987. Sidney can't handle the library's 
85.000 book records and it takes be- 
tween 30 seconds and 30 minutes when 
searching, accoiding lo Peggy Bennett, 
the Head Librarian. 

Bennett is hoping lo get a $16,200 
refund from Sidney to buy a better sys- 
tem. Brian Foley, vice president of the 
company which manufactures Sidney, 
apologized for its inaccurate estimate 
that the computer could handle the 
85,000 records which McKee Library 

stores. He told Bennett, "If we can't 
improve your response time wc will 
refund your money." 

Sidney, called the "Mercedes of Sys- 
tems." was selected after a thorough 
research by the librarians, said Bennett. 
It is used for searching subjects, titles. 
and authors. Sidney is connected to an 
IBM/AT compatible computer with a 
hard disk drive of 350 megabytes, ca- 
pable of containing 200,000 titles. Its 
three terminals are on the main floor of 
the library, near the reference room and 
circulation desk. 

Many students have been frustrated by 
Sidney'sslow searching. EricTanner.a 

senior Public Relations major, said, "I 
don't like it. It's too slow and too vague. 
They need Infotrac back so they can 
throw this thing into the depths of the 

Some promising new systems are 
Mediflex. Computer Assistant Library 
Information Co. Inc.. and Calico Lion. 

"Mediflex isnow on our file server, but 
is not accessible to students. It gives the 
library staff a chance to see where the 
system's problems are," said Bennett 

A visiting Mediflex representative 
loaded 75,000 records into his system in 
one-half hour. "It look us weeks to do 
the same thing." said Bennett 

McKee Library recenUy bought 12j 
out-of-business sale of a Chattanooga 
wholesale bookstore. Three library staff 
members look the greater parts of two 
days shopping for discounted books, 
"We got two or three books for a dollar 
and all ihe rest were two dollars, " said 
Peggy Bennett, head librarian. 

According to Bennett, the store was a 
literature food market, providing shop- 
ping carts for hauling books to the 
check-out All books regularly priced at 
four dollars and up sold for two dollars 
and books from $ 1 .99-53.99 sold forone 
dollar. Books under S1.99 were only 
$0.50. I 

Bennett said the manager of Eastgaie I 
Book Warehouse, Melinda Simcox. 
called to lell her they were going out of 
business. "We have bought many books 
from them in the past and we will miss 
them and the money they have saved us," 
Bennett said. 

McKee Library has approximately 
95,000tiiles in circulation. Accordingio 
Bennett, ti

The library's book budget is $47,000 
for the year. Standing orders, such as 
dictionaries and encyclopedias, cost 
$1,200. A percentage of the total then 
goes to each department. "From the 
remaining $1,300, we keep up the JU

Kenya Magee disagrees. She said, "I

I looked in bewilderment al my 
leacher. How on earth did he arrive at 
thai answer? Maih had never been 
easy for me and today was no excep- 
tion. Mr. Walker siood at the chalk- 
board with dust on his black pants, 
trying to explain how x -t-y could equal 
10. I was in my assigned chair, two 
rows back, four chairs from the door. 

The bell rang. Anotherday of inter- 
mediate algebra was finally over. As I 
walked from the hot, stale room, it felt 
good to be able to breathe in fresh air 
from outside, I headed toward my 
ready for my next ap- 

pointment: chapel. 1 looked around the 
campus to see if I could spot a familiar 
face. But I saw only the campus couple 
and a group of guys who neverdated and 
never had the approval of the faculty. I 
quickly ran to my room to grab my 
history book and then headed for chapel 
in the church. 

The walk there wasalonely one. Iiwas 
about three minutes until chapel was to 
begin and everyone was either at the 
door or already inside. I rushed to make 
sure I would get there in lime lo receive 
the chapel credit I so desperately needed. 

Inside ihechurch, I carefully selected a 
seat close enough to the door so I could 
leave ahead of the crowd. As chapel 
started. I settled down into the pew's 
cushion and pulled out my history notes. 
1 really needed a good grade on the quiz 
I'd have in two days, so I studied every 
spare moment. Before I knew it, Eh. 
Arnold was having the benediction and 
the rows were being dismissed. I walked 
past the speaker, automatically telling 

him I had enjoyed the service, and 
headed for my religion class. 

Religion was one class 1 could not 
stand. It was in the middle of my day and 
I had to miss lunch for it. Besides, I heard

hearing since elementary school. Isatin

and I was off to work at the music build-

A case of neglect 

Talge showers clean ceiling 
rather than dorm residents 


The ceilings in the Talge Hal! commu- 
nity showers are the cleanest ceilings 
anywhere on campus. This is because at 
least half of the showers spray water 
directly upward instead of downward. 

It's very simple to realize that the more 
water there is washing the ceiling, the 
less there is to wash the dorm resident's 
hair, amipits, and so on. This is bad 
enough, but unfortunately, watering the 
ceiling is the least of the problems. 

On third east, the residents are subject 
to a phenomena called "Acute Thermal 
H20 Deprivation," brought on by the 
"Sudden Increased Utilization of Non- 
Thermal H20 by the Body Waste Con- 
fiscation and Sanitation System." In 
other words, if you're taking a shower 
and someone flu.shes the toilet, you'll be 
momentarily scalded. 

On first west, the problem is lack of 
water pressure. How bad is it? Picture in 
your mind four water pistols firing at the 
same time, or the water flow from a 
garden hose tied in a knot. You get the 

On second west there are so many 
problems, it's difficult lo know where lo 
Stan. Only two ofihe five shower heads 
function properly. One of the heads 
needs to be replaced and one has the 
same problem as first fioor in its lack of 

It's a real hassle to take a shower one 
body pan at a time. If you're rijshed for 
lime in the morning, you have to decide 
whether to wash your front or your back. 
Of course, you could always come back 
in the evening to take care of whatever 
didn't get cleaned thai morning. 

On third west, there is a different type 
of problem. All five showers work, and 
three of them work so well they keep on 
working even after they are turned off. 
(This. I must admit, might be beneficial 
to those poor souls who aren't yet fully 
awake and forget to turn the shower on). 
On a more serious note, however, one 
can't help but wonder how a school that 
is so gung-ho about saving money can let 
hot water constantly drip out of these 

1 have talked with all three deans about 
the showers and what was being done 
about the inefficiencies. Here is what I 
learned; First, work orders have been 
turned in continuously since September 
1988. That's about four month's worth 
of requests from the deans to have the 
showers repaired. What's taking so 
long? Second,! learned that apparentiv 
there are some who doubt the validity of 
the complaints. One administration 
member went so far as to suggest that 
maybe she should don her swimsuil and 
check the situation herself. Well fine. 

If the repeated complaints of three 
deans and a multitude of dorm residents 
aren't enough. I say let her come. But 
someone should tell her that she needn't 
bother with a towel. She probably won't 
get wet enough for anything more than a 

Three showerheads were delivered 
over Christmas break. They're all bro- 
ken now (one broke while a dean was 
screwing it onto the shower), and we all 
know that the fact that they were plastic 
had anything to do with their breaking. 
Necessary supplies are on order and 
should be in shortly. If so the showers 
could be repaired before the end of this 
month, only five months after work was 
requested. What service! After all, if 
you're paying $9,000 lo attend an insti- 
tution, you expect the best.

"To inform, educate, inspire, and

Souihem College's two full-time journalism profes- 
sors will leave al the end of this semester. Department 
Chairman C.A. Oliphani and Assistant Professor Ron 
Smith submitted their resignations during Christmas 
Break, to be effective June 1. 

"We feel that perhaps our vision and goals are beyond

toby SC's Board, administration, and Coffey Commu-

Smith said, "My resignation was in support of him

■'We've been seeking a strong commitment toward 
[departmental) accreditation by the administration and 
have never received it," said Oliphant. 

Donald Sahly, college president, says, "Their view- 
point is 10 seek administration commitment and then 
use it as a club to beat administration in the direction 
they want to go...When the department isready. we will 
seek il [accreditation). I've always said those goals 
were worthy, but let us move forward at a little slower

Oliphani has been on loan assignment (meaning his 
salary is paid in full without funds from Souihem 
College) to SC's joumalism depanmeni from Coffey

Cecil Coffey, the company's owner and president, 
has providedfmancial support in excessof$100,000of

Lack of heros 
robs our school 
of strong leaders 

Our generalion grew up with no real heros. The genera-

thing; people who dared (o make a difference; people who 
wanted to lead in the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness. 
Their greatest gift was themselves, which they gave sclflessly . 

Our generalion lives with no real heros. The pscudo-heros 
of today lack the virtue, integrity, and ability to deserve heroic 
status. Scandal, dishonesty, ignorance, and prejudice regu- 
larly follow today's prominent figures. Hero races for today's 
leaders are no longer selecting the prime candidate with v 
and courage, but rather settling for the lesser of two evils. 
Their greatest gift was distrust, disappointment, and disillu- 
sionment, which they have given to an entire nation. 

Our generaHon must cultivate heros. Our college, oui

Southern College can be known by its lovely landscape, its 
conservative values, or its liberal arts curriculum. But would 
it not be ideal for Southern to have a reputation for cultivating 
heros? Would it not be beneficial for our school to invest in 
the training and development of leaders? Would it not be 
admirable to claim that our college creates individuals who 
stand for virtue and courage? 

Now is the time to start leadership trairung. Now 's the time

uel Contreras will tie moved lo 
[he University of Tennessee ai 
Chattanooga. But before we 
wave goodbye and good rid- 
dance to this "controversial" 
work, there are some angles 
that have yet to be considered. 
A lot of controversy has sur- 

arrived on campus 10 years 
ago. The controversy evolved 
from uninformed interpreta- 
tions of the artwork. School 
officials say iirepresents God's 

wtiich falls a drop of blood. 

The "official" meaning given 
by Dr. Sahly, as quoted from 
The Chattanooga Times, is "the

Until recently, no one ever 
bothered lo ask the artist for his

As to any questions of the an- 

ras explained that he is a Protes- 
tant and does not believe in 
idols of God, meaning a direct 
representation of God in art. 

It is all in^levent now. The 
sculpture will soon be removed 
and placed where it will be 
appreciated. "I don't care 
where it is except that it is well 
taken care of," saic Contreras.

Read House to host Valentine's banquet 

By Lynn McFaddin 

"A Night in New York" will be expe- 
rienced by those who aiiend ihe Student 
Association Valentine's banqueton Feb. 
!2. Students will spend the evening ai 
the historic Read House in downtown 

The banquet will be held in the Silver 
Ballroom. Hors d'oeuvres will be 
served in the Continental Room, adja- 
cent to the Silver Ballroom, while por- 
traits are being made. 

The coordinators will not say exactly 
what course the evening's program wUi 
follow. Mike Magursky, S.A. officer in 
charge of public relations, would sa) 
simply that there would be live emer- 
tainmeni including a combination of 
skits, live music, and video taping. He 
hopes the evening will be unique and 
we II -remembered by those who attend. 

Renee Johnson, SA social vice presi- 
dent, said, "The program will noi be 
s we ethean oriented. Itwillbedesigned 
for everyone to enjoy." 

This year's S A officers have tried ihcjr 
best to make improvements on the ban- 
quets held in the past. Mark Waldrop. 
SA president, said this will be the first 
Southern College banquet to be held at 
the Read House. In recent years Ihe 
Chattanooga Choo-Choo has been a 
popular site for banquets. Waldrop said, 
■To me, the Read House is a muchclass- 
ier place than the Choo-Choo and they 

providing a vegetarian menu." 

Waldrop worked with Olan Mills in 
reducing the photo package prices and 
achieved a two dollar discount. This 
year two 5x7's and 10 wallets will cost 
only eight dollars. The S12 package 
includes one 8x10, two 5x7's, and 10 
wallets. Fifteen dollars will buy two 
8xlO's.two4x7'sand lOwallets. 

Tickets went on sale Wednesday . Jan.

be purchased at the information desk in

26 College Republicans attend inauguration 

By Wen dy Odell 

Jan uary 20. 1989 wasoneof those days 
when hisioty stood still to take notice of 
a particularly momentou.s occasion. 
Twenty-six Southern College Republi- 
cans personally witnessed the fifty-first 
presidential inaugural ceremony on the 
Capital lawn. 

"There were so many people there, but 
whenBushgoiupitwas quiet! Ifelllike 
I was taking part in history. I was so 
touched, ti was wild!" said Debbie 

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir helped 
prepare a ceremonial atmosphere during 
the pre-inaugural program. Then every- 
one listened as Vice President George 
Bush repealed the 35 words that made 
him the new U.S. President. 

said President Bush during his accep- 
tance speech. Thecrowd seized onto the 
theme. Says Michelle Wing. "One 

woman even asked Laurie Edens, John 
Negley, Melissa Rose, and 1 — along 
with the thousands of people behind 
us — 10 bea kinder and gentlernation and 
take one step back so she could have 
more room for herself." said Michelle 
Wing, "but no one heard her because it 
was at that time that everyone was rush- 
ing forward to see the celebrities thai 
came to witness the inauguration." 

Some individuals noticed included 
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Charles Bron- 
son, Donald Trump, Kevin Cosmer, 
Maria Shriver...and the list goes on. 

"Seeing all those stars was almost 
belter than the inauguration itself," said 
Brenda Menhardl. 

"George lo George-200 years" was a 
popular inaugural iheme thai empha- 
sized the similarity in today's traditions 
with those in George Washington's day. 
Southern College students toured an 
exhibit set up near the Washington 
t that illustrated the years that 

have passed since Ihe first inauguration 
of 1789 in New York City. Large paint- 
ings and replicas of Ihe Statue of Liberty 
and the Liberty Bell comprised part of 
the outdoor exhibit. 

"I enjoyed the inauguration — even 
though it was quite cold — and touring 
the various museums," said Paul Eirich. 
"I also visited Ariington National Ceme- 
tery where my grandparents are buried." 

Traveling time to and from Washing- 
ton. D.C. averaged 11 1/2 hours. Colum- 
bia Union College accommodated the 
College Republicans for the three 
nights. Members paid their own way. 
but the cost of the trip was reduced, due 
to outside financial support for the trip. 
Members also received passes to ihe 
inauguration and official invitations to 
all the events. Tickets had to be pur- 
chased individually for most of the other 
events. The prices ranged fi-om S20 to 
$200. Therefore, most students decided 
lo attend the functions that were cither 

at they had passe 

Students attended the parade and a few 
snuck into the $150 seals for free. "We 
were scared that we were going to ge' 
caught at first, but we could sure we a lot 
better." said Melissa Rose. The parade 
started an hour late and lasted until 7:. 
p.m. There were 200 parade entries. 

Some students went on a walking tou 
of the monumenis thai nighl, 
spending all day outside watching i"^ 
inaugralion and parade. The mon 
ments remain lit at night. 

'■We had a great group of s'"deni.s on

Isoulhem College have experimented 
with alcohol. Qualley said the new pol- 
icy is a move forward in providing help. 
J Sharon Engel, dean of women, says

Southern College's policy dealing 
WLih drugs and alcohol was revised in 
I December upon recommendations from 
olhet Adventisi Colleges, a professional 
chemical abuse counselor, and the Gen- 
eral ConferenceofSevenlh-day Advent- 
isLs, according to William Wohlers, vice 
president for Siudeni Services. 

Emphasis has been placed on follow- 
up, said Wohlers. He said the goal is to 

help siudents deal wiih their problems, 
notjusl to punish (hem. 

Under the new policy, siudents caught 
with alcohol or illicit drugs will be sus- 
pended a minimum of one week. Qual- 
ley says the one-week suspension is 
necessary to evaluate the student's in- 
volvement with dnigs and alcohol and to 
assess what the school can do to help. 
The suspended student musl complete a 
$25 evaluation — paid in cash — lo deter- 
mine his level of drug or alcohol in- 
volvement before being considered for 

ley sayshe backs off the situation, "A loi 
of times if you confront them with the 
facts.-.ihey'll admit it." he said. 

Qualley says he wishes other students 
would help those wiih substance abuse 
problems. "Are you really a friend of 
this person if you let ihem carry on with 
this activity?" he asked. 

Hobbs said it will be difTiculiio decide 
whether or not to suspend a student who 
has turned himself in for help. "The 
in this college are in a lough posi- 

. We not only c 

"...Adventist kids drink, 
Adventist kids do drugs, 
have premarital sex, and 
commit suicide.... We can't 
afford to let kids with 
problems pull down the 
good kids, but we can get 
them some help." 


Deans say ihe most difficult part of 
incorporating the policy is finding the 
students using drugs or alcohol and then 
getting those students to admit iheir 
problem. "There's no way humanly 
possiblcto deal with every situation 1 
know aboui," says Qualley. If Ihe stu- 
dent denies using alcohol or drugs Qual- 

11 gets us in a 
bind.. .[this situationl would be a judg- 
ment call on the pan of the dean." 

Readmission for suspended siudents 
hinges on the substance abuse evalu- 
ation. If the student was experimeniing. 

he will be r 

suspension. If ihe chemical use was 
more lhan experimental, the student will 
remain suspended pending completion 
of a college-approved rehabilitation 

A readmitted student will be required 
to panicipaie in a multi-faceted follow- 
up program. Jackie Gray, counselor with 
Chattanooga Alcohol and Drug Abuse 
Service, will hold weekly resistance 
education seminars. 

In addition, students trained by Gray 
will reach other students through peer 
reinforcement meetings—open to all 
studenis-which will be coordinated 
through the Chaplain's Office. 

Qualley is skeptical of the peer rein- 

forcemeni program "probably because 

the school lo get the reputation of run- 
ning a rehabilitation center," he said. 

Stan Hobbs. associate dean of men, 
said the program is not designed to be a 
rehabilitation program, so policy word- 
ing was chosen to avoid projecting that 

New siudents involved in substance 
abuse prior to Iheir admission at SC will 
face possible urine screening and pos- 
sible required attendance at Alcoholics 
Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous 
meetings — at the school's disc 
as conditions for i 
Wohlers and Qualley said Ihe urine 
screening option is pan of the follow-up 
program and not an item that will be 
directed at students refusing to confess 

chemical abuse problem after complet- 
ing Ihe evaluation and the follow-up 
program will be suspended from Ihe col- 
lege indefinitely. 

Wohlers declined to say how many 
students are currently affected. Hobbs 
estimates four or more siudents will be 
involved as the policy takes effect this 

magical formula. Kids are going 
kids and experiment and take the ci 
quences," he said.

Ihal there is apariiy in A A-league this year, and all the 
teams are still in the running. 

The first of three teams wiih a two and two record, 
Grisso has been a consistent team. They beat Johnson 
twice, winning 68-67 in iheir first game and 74-72 in 
their second. Despite Ihe fact thai they have lost two. 
they are still a very good learn. Their losses were 78- 
63 and 72-65 — decisions thai went to Pollom and 
Bovell. respectively. If they continue lo play solid 
basketball, they will be very much in contention.

Johnson has been a hard luck team all season. All

just a little luck, Johnson could have been unbeaten 
this season. However, it wasn't lo be and they are now

article in the Southern Tidings describ- 
ing Olipham's goals for SC's journalism 

"Ohphani sold me on tiie idea of build- 
ing a one-of-a-kind program in the SDA 
denomination — an accrediled school of 
journalism that would be recognized 
throughout the church as "the place lo 
go" in Ihe field of journalism, much like 
Walla Walla is recognized for its engi- 
neering department," said Smith. 

Olipham worked for diree and one- 
half years al Coffey Communications. 
Inc.priortoieachingatSC. Heservedas 
senior vice president of die company and 
as editor-in-chief of Wea///i Scene, a 16- 
page ubioid containing health and 
medical news and information, written 
for the general public. Oliphant says he 
was able to watch the publication prog- 
ress from merely an idea to apublication 
with a circulation of over five million 
during his editorship. 

For next year. Oliphant's plans are 
quite certain. "I'm going back to Coffey 
Communications, with its headquarters 
in Seanle, Wash., to do editorial work 

again and some consulting." he said. 
"I'm also looking into writing some 
books that Coffey can market" 

Smith has not yet made definiie plans. 
"I've been offered a job leaching and a 
couple of jobs at newspapers, but I have- 
n't accepted any of them yet." he said. 

"It's a tragedy." said Oliphanl of die 
situation. "It's a failure of vision — not 
on Cecil's and my part, but definitely a 
failure. I've made pleas time after lime 
for die commitment we've felt is neces- 
sary to make this program go." he said. 

"I'm Sony." said Sahly of Oliphant's 
and Smitii's resignations. "1 don't want 
Ihem lo leave and I've told diem tiiat I 
wish diey would stay.. .but this is some- 
tiiing they've worked out for diem- 
sclves,"he sEud. 

Sahly continued, "Solution was never 
seen as a cooperative agreement It was 
an all or nothing sitiiation. and die col- 
lege just couldn't cope widi il-I have 
honestly done all I can do to satisfy their 
needs anddesires, but therecomesatime

Pariofihe incentive forbeing involved 

with the Journal is gelling bylines and 
photo credits in the newspaper, which 
looks good on resumes. "I think it's a 
great opportunity lo get practical expe- 
rience with our a profes- 
sional way ."said Lisa DiBiase, photog- 
raphy student. Six photo journalism 
students are working on phoio assign- 
ments for the paper. 

The Journal itself developed slower 
than the pictures students have primed 
for il. Smith said he and Oliphani dis- 
cussed the idea of a local newpaper for 
more than a year. The Accenl was tar-

says half ihe ad space necessary lo break

Home Economics department faces extinction 

By Er ic h Stev ens 

Shock, horror, pain, grief, anger, 
tears, and disgust were emotions felt 
by home economics students when 
they learned their deparimenl may be 
phased out. said Diane Fletcher, 
consumer and family sciences de- 
partment chairman. 

On Feb. 20 the college board voles 
on Academic Dean Floyd Green- 
leaf's proposal to abolish the depart- 
ment. If passed. Soulhem College 
will no longer offer any degrees 

a month Is 

"Ii's really 

will be able lo continue in the pro- 
gram through the 1989-90 school 
year (at the end of which the depart- 
ment will close), but they will not be 
able to register as majors in any con- 
sumer and family science programs 
in August, said Fletcher. 

Fletcher and the college board re- 
ceived official word of ihe proposal

ior majoring in textiles and clothing.

make a presentation lo the hoard, and 
we feel they don't know the facts " 

on Feb. 20. 

According lo Donald Sahly. presi- 
dent of SC. the department is not fi- 
nancially viable. Enrollment in 
home economics programs has de- 
clined, and the department's ex- 
penses arc not covered adequately. 

However. Record's Office siatis- 
lics show a siable enrollmenl. In the 
1985 and 1986 school years, there 
were 15 home economies majors. In

"Why do we seem to think that it is 
tooexpensiveioeducale .students for

cost money lo offer these classes. 
But not offering them also costs 
money— divorce has fiscal as wellas 
emotional costs." said Fletcher 

"What we have to decide is 
whether dol lars and cents is more im- 
portant than Adveniisieducation and 
philosophy." she added. 

The department is not academi- 
cally viable, said Sahly, It has four 
teachers, bui only Fletcher teaches 
full-lime. The other three-Roy 
Dingle (Village Market Bakery di- 
rector) and Earl Evans (food service 
director), who teach food service ad-

Act 1 — Majors in Ihe department: In January, 
SC President Dr. Donald Sahly said there were 
nearly 60 majors in the journalism depamnenl. In 
Ihe last issue of the Acceiir Sahly said. "They [01- 
iphani and Smith] want the college to bring in four 
teachers and ihcre are only 45 or 50 majors in the 
depanmenl...They want to force-feed the process." 
It seems as interest in the situation grew, administra- 
tion adjusted figures to defend its position. Mary 
Elam, director of records, says there were actually 66 
majors last semester and there are 61 majors this 
semester (counting double majors). Maybe SC 
needs a remedial course in Counting Majors aimed at 
administrators making public statements. 

Act 2 — ^Teachers requested for the department: 
It is true Oliphani wanted four and even five teachers 
in the journalism department, but what Sahly didn't 
mention was the suggested timing of the additional 
faculty. In a proposal submitted lo administration by 
Oliphant. the request was for "three full-time faculty 
members who devote all their effort lo teaching 
coursesdirectly essential to the department., .a fourth 
full-time faculty memberwilljoin the faculty as soon 
as Lhe number of majors in the department increases

He said there was only one journal-

So. ' 

; the s 

many students came away with the misconception of a 

one teacher department. It does make a difference in 
how you view what's happened. Southern College paid 
two teachers' salaries when the department had far 
fewer majors than it does now. The original intent 
behind adding Oliphani to the department at Coffey's 
expense was, I believe, lo help the college gain a third 
professor crucial in building the department and apply- 
ing for accreditation— all at no extra cash outlay to the

contradictory. Sahly said he didn't 
think Oliphant was prepared to stay beyond the three- 
year agreement. Oliphant says, "My plan has always 
been to continue with the program as long as it has the 
commitment and support of the college." Maybe the 
statements aren't contradictory after all! 

Act 3^Funding by CofTej Communications: 
Sahly told Journalism students funding from Coffey 
Communications would end later this year and there 
had been no indication fromCoffey any more could be 
expected. Sahly expressed doubt that Coffey Com- 
munications could afford to subsidize the program 
any further. Coffey said, "I agreed lo help 
the program for three years, ,.I did make 
that I would assess the need for the future and would 
probably participate in something further with the de-

Repaving Collegedale airport 
takes longer than expected 

By David Hamilton 

Collegedale Airport's runway was 
recently lengthened from 3,300 feet to 
4,700 feet and completely repaved. The 
project took too much lime, said Roy 
Fan. manager of the Collegedale air- 
port, which is run by Southemair, Inc.

December after six months of work," 
said FatT. "We had hoped to have the

supposed to take four months. He had 
also said thalpaving the entire stripafter 
improvements would lake only a couple 
of days. 

However, the contractor look "an 
unnecessary, ridiculous amount of 
lime," said Farr. "They took two weeks 
10 pave itand two weeks lo paint it. It was 
upsetting and unnecessary." Farr said 
die contractor was not a local company. 

The airport runway improvements 
have reduced flight traffic into the Chat- 
lanooga airport, says Farr. "We're the 
principle relief for them. We expect to 
have more business now because the 
improvements allow the flying public 
access lo a good modem airport," said 

Souihemair, Inc. also hopes lo have 
more plane space built in the near future. 
according to Farr. "We're getting up itie 
money for that right now," he said, "We

Assembly skips cost $10 each

equitable way, for dorm and village

The new fee is also the result of moni-

policy will answer the often asked ques-

The policy last semester stated that if a

of affection and a spark of desire, a 
hint of pain and a strand of patience, 
tying it all togeiher. Romandc yet 
pragmatic. Veiled yet irrepressible. 

Love is two friends sitting hand in

Love stays up all night to console a

Is love merely a waim feeling of

this point. Blanco added that thedepan-

posal on the grounds that both counsel-

changes would be implemented next 
school year. 

Blanco says the Fundamcnuls of

such information is important, a course 
in pastoral counseling would focus on 
the spiritual dimensions of counseling.

Derek Morris. a.ssociate professor of 
religion, said such a class would provide 
a usable aid in pastoral counseling — one 

that would offer a practical approach for 
religion students. He also said the idea 
for the class was student-generated. 
Religion students have voiced ihe need 
for such a course to better prepare them 
for the pastoral duties that await them 
after they graduate, said Morris. 

A pastoral counseling class would 
teach students how to listen and provide 
scripture-centered counseling tech- 
niques to complement the information 
taught in the psychology counseling 
class, "Wcwanttodoeverythingwecan 
to make the program responsive to the 
students' needs," said Morris. 

"Pastoral counseling cannot be all

said Jackie James, a freshman religion 

Conference leaders have also ex- 
pressed a desire for the pastoral counsel- 
ing class, as well as courses in finance. 
Christian education, computers, and 
marriage and family studies lo insure 
that well-prepared ministers will gradu-

Based on such requests, the current 
catalog curriculum has changed from 
last year. Cognaies are tighter now. and 
two years of homiletics (classes in 
preaching) will be required as opposed 
to the previous one year. 

A summer field school in evangelism 
providing six semester hours of credit 
has also been added. The first field 
school was held this past summer m 
Atlanta. Fifteen students from SC par-

Craig Lastine 


I . Here al Souihem College we have a 
good relationship bemeen our facuhy 
and siudem body. But, like many things. 
I think this relationship can be made 
belter. Two ways in which we can work 
together to do this arc outlined below. 

A, I have created a system which I call 
the "'Student Association Ombudsman 
System" in which the office of the Stu- 
dent Association Ombudsman is created 
within the Constitution of the 
SASCSDA and where this ombudsman 
would be appointed by the SA president. 
This ombudsman would be a problem- 
solver, available to every student who 
had a problem with the faculty or with an 
individual committee within the admini- 
stration network. The ombudsman and 
the SA president would act as ex-officio 
members of any commiltee with which 

The purpose of the Student Associa- 
tion of Southern College should guide 
every diligent SA president in his duties. 
That is: promoting Christian fellowship 
between students, using the full poten- 
tial of our resources in planning student 
activities in a growing Christian com- 
munity, and to represent the views of the 
students to the faculty and administra- 

My goal for the 1 989-90 school year is 
to make things happen — by utilizing the 
individual talents every student can 
contribute to the success of the whole 
student body. The spark and creativity 
of the individual must not be allowed to 
wane and die. Whether our goal is or- 
ganizing Strawberry Festival, planninga 
bam party, or producing the Southern 
Accent, count on being asked for your 
opinion and help.

nally found a home. Souihem is the

ombudsman would also be the informa-

This year we have had an excellent 
executive branch doing everything po.s- 
sible to make sure that the student body 
is heard. I am proud to have been a pan 
of this group and to have been able to do 
my share in making thisycarihe best one 
SC has ever had. 

In the Senate, many issues have been 
brought to our attention. Most have been 
solved, with some still in the planning 
stages. As chairman of the Talge Hall 
parking lot security committee, I am 
happy to tell you guys that the security 
issue in the parking lot is well underway. 
Lighting has been ordered, surveillance 
has been increased, and other possibili- 
ties are also being considered in the 
concem for the safety of our cars. 

There is, however, still room for im- 
provement with pedestrian safety on this 
campus. This is an issue that several 
people have expressed concem about, 
and with the recent scare in the cross

As a candidate for SA president, it is

Basketball players and fans look 
forward to the annual Rees Series 
tournament, which traditionally 
ends each basketball intramural 
season. This year's 19th Rees Se- 
ries championship ended Saturday 
night, Feb. 18. 

The Rees Series began in 1971 as 
a basketball playoff between com- 
munity and dormitory students. It 
was originally a best two-out-of- 
three game series that started 
Thursday and ended Sunday. 
However, by 1976 the number of 
dormitory students grew large 
enough to make it impossible for 
ihe community team to compete 
on an equal basis. 

In 1977 the fomal was changed

now plays two games. The first is

ISC mourns Rimer's tragedy 

Bv Erich Stevei 

Frederick Todd Rimer 

Southern College siudenis are mourning the loss of 
freshman Todd Rimer, who was killed in a tragic 
motorcycle accident Tuesday, March 14. He just 
turned 20 years old last month. 

"He seemed like he always had so much love to give 
everybody; he smiled ai everyone. I don't think he ever 
met anybody he didn't like or befriend," said Rimer's 
uncle, Jerry. "He was the lillle brother I never had." 

"Todd was everybody's buddy," said long-lime 
friend Debbie Claik. "I've known him since 1 was in 
second grade and whenever] ihlnkofToddlseehim 
laughing. Joking, or whistling his special bird chirp. 
We went lo academy logether, took our summer camp 
cabins on campouls together, double dated, weni on 
countless gymnastics trips together.. .He's so's hard to adjust to ihe fact thai we' I! not see 
his smile again until heaven," said Clark. 

Rimer was struck by acar traveling in the opposite di- 
rection, according to the Hamilton County Sheriffs 
Depanmeni. The 17-year-old driver of Uie car lost 
control and went off ihe shoulder of the road. 

"When the driver tried to compensateand get back on

According to Rimer's uncle, Jerry Rimer. Todd 
Rimer was on his way lo Cleveland. Tenn. to buy a new 
seal for his motorcycle when he was hit. 

The accident occured shortly after 8 a.m. on Tuesday 
at Ihe 8500 block of Edgemond Road. Then Rimer was 
taken to Erianger Hospital, where he was pronounced 

The name of the driver of the car is being withheld 
because charges are pending, said Hammond. Also in

Both friends and faculty enjoyed Rimer's friendly 
nature. "He was a very sweet boy," said Jacque Can- 
trell, KR's Place manager. Canlrell knew Rimer from 
Bass Memorial Academy in Mississippi, where she 
was assistant giris dean when Rimer was a junior.

Cheating destroys 
honesty, integrity 
of its participants 

-Mr Erickson, ! don't understand this question on the mid- 
tenn exam " As I asked my teacher thai queslion I looked up 
and glanced around the room. Straight ahead of me tvw 
students were blatantly cheating (discussmg a question in 
great depth) 

I was outraged and disgusted bul yet I didn t say anything to 
the teacher. Why not? Tm not sure. , , , . 

Maybe because both of the students were friends ot niine. 
I didn't have the guts to blow the whistle, even though those 
two students cheating could possibly lower my score, atter 
Ihe final grades are curved. 

Cheating has become too accepted among students, obvi- 
ously or I wouU have said something immediately, bince 
sometime in fifth grade when I first realized such a thing 
occurred, I have watched this action with dismay. 

Cheating clashes with the every quality SC tries to build in 
lis students. Integrity, strong character, and competence are 
all elements opposite of cheating. Take a minute to conjure 
up in your mind the profile of a successful person. No matter 
what their position in life, most likely that person will be 
honest and sincere. 

As Christians we should strive to have those two qualities 
foremost in our character. We all want lo be respected by our 
peers, and the most effective way (o earn that respect is by 
honestly sttving lo do our best. Being honest may mean the 
difference between an "A" and a "B," or even a "C" and a 
"D," but at least (he tmthful person gets what he honestly 
deserves, and is building a character to last a lifetime. 

Probably Ihe worst response someone could have to the 
problem of cheating is apathy. The most desired reaction is 
■ and inspiration. Be conscious o! your 
to be an honest and sincere person.

The endowment funds McClany re- 
ceives go into an account. The principal 
is not spent, but the interest from it is 
dispersed for student scholarships. 
Interest on the fund last year was 8.1 
percent, which brought approximately 
S300.000 in scholarships. "Hopefully, it 
(the interest] will be better this year." 
said McClany. 

A small amount of money is put back 
into the principal to "help offset infla- 
tion, but most of the money we give to 
students," he said. 

In December. SC received $35,000 
from the William Randolf Foun- 
dation in New York, It was the second 
grant given by them, and McClany will 
appeal to them for a third. The first gram 
was $20,000, 

Another large grant of 5120,000 will 
be decided upon Ihis month. "I think we 
have a good chance of getting that one." 
said McClarty.

Security fights 
bad guy image 


n Kirslein 

Although the security departmem is 
besi known among students as the "bad 
guys" who give out lickeis, security 
docs have other, less painful functions. 
One of security's functions is to 
check all SC buildings at night. Each 
building hasasecurity station with a key 
punch that lelts the time it was checked 
and its building code. A security officer 
punches in randomly throughout the 
night indicating at each station that a 
safety check has been made. 

Another function is patrolling the 
campus during sleeping hours. Security 
ensures those of us still up writing late- 
night lerm papers, folding laundry, or 
tossing and turning in bed, that evil vil- 
lains wanting to break in and destroy. 
stealer damage will not be able to do so. 

Security also provides limited trans- 
portation. Free rides are given to SC 
students who need to reach the Medical 
Plaza in Ooliewah. However, assecuriiy 
ofHcer Roy Nelson comments. "We will 
not just lake someone down to Puzzles 
Pizza. This ser\'ice is especially de- 
signed for those who need medical at- 
tention, but have no way to get there." 

Airport and bus station shuttle services 
are available for a cash fee. which is not 
chargeable onto one's account and must 
be paid for in cash. "We provide trans- 
ponaiion to a few limited places, like the 
airpon and the bus terminal, but do not 
provide wheels for those needing to 
work off campus." says Nelson. 

Most SC students are familiar with 
parking tickets and the lack of parking 
places. Security also handles these prob- 

"Security is here for the 
students...Someone is 
always on duty." 


Nelson said. ■"ITiere are between 40 
and 50 available parking spaces in the

Biology department 
repairs nature trail 

The biology trails, which wind their 
way over and around White Oak Moun- 
tain, have not consistently been kept up 
for the last three or four years. White 
Oak Mountain overlooks Southern Col- 
lege from the West. 

According to Keith Nelson, a junior 
biology major, the trails have been here 
since before the college ( 1 892). Nelson, 
who works for Dr. Duane Houck in 
Hackman Hall, said he sometimes 
spends eight hours per weekclearing the 

done. During the 1986-87 school year, 
the grounds department installed 
bndges over the stream on White Oak 
Mountain, said Nelson. He also stated 
that railroad tie steps were recently 
placed at the beginning of the trails, with 
landscaping done around them. 

Alan Starbird, a junior biology major, 
and Nelson are designing a sign for the 
trail head, which is behind Summerour 
Hall. Points of interest markers are part 
of a long-range renovation plan. I'd like 
to start doing it [the renovation) this 
summer, said Dr. Houck. 

Blanco forms 

By Darin Slewa rl 

Adventist cognoscenti have for sev- 
eral years discussed the possibility of 
organizing as a group for the purpose of 
an idea exchange. In the fall of 1987, 
religion professors from Andrews Uni- 
versity took initiative and informed the 
Southern College religion depanmem of 
iLs wish to pursue organization. 

After a full year of consideration, 
Southern took supportive action. On 
Oct. 9. 1988, the Adventist Theological 
Society (ATS) was fotrned with Dr. Jack 
Blanco, Chairman ofSC's religion de- 
panment, as the first president and Dr. 
Richard Davidson, Chairman of the Old 
TesiamentdepartmenloftheSDA Theo- 
logical Seminary at Andrew's Univer- 
sity, as vice president. 

The ATS's two main objectives are to 
provide an atmosphere for religion pro- 
fessors and scholars to openly discuss 
religious topics, and to provide an at- 
mosphere for religious research. Cur- 
rently, a newsletter is being published to 
inform ATS members of any research 
taking place, to announce the location of 
each meeting, and to pose theological 
questions to be discussed at those meet- 
ings. Two meetings are planned for each 
year — one will be a study session and the 
other will be a general meeting in which 
the results of research accomplished will 
be applied to contemporary life. 
Membership is granted by the soci- 

ommendation of two members and the i 
acceptance by the recommendee of 
membership criteria. Yearly dues 
amount to $25 per person. SIO for a i 
spouse or student, and five dollars for 
intercontinental applicants. Although 
the ATS was created by theologians 
welcomes anyone who has the desire 
discuss centrist Adventist theology.

Security officer Nelson continued. "If 
you have a complaint with security, talk 
to security. Appeal your ticket charge, 
and most likely it will be excused." 

"Security is here for the students. If 
you have a problem, or if no one is in the 
oRicc between the hours of 1 1 a.m. and 
5 p.m.. Monday thru Friday, call 
Thatcher. Thatcher is our headquarters. 
They radio out to whoever ison duly and 
relate the situation. That is a 24-hour a 
day. 7 day per week service. Someone is 
always on duly." says Nelson. 

TTie winner of this College Bowl sea- 
son was Jeff Grange's team, who went 
into the championship game with an 
undefeated record against Roben 
Marsa's team, which had one loss. 

Because the format for the tournament 
is double elimination. Grange would 
have had to lose twice in order for Marsa 
to be the season champion. Thus, when 
Marsa won the first game with a score of 
330 to 170, a second game was played to 
eliminate one of the remaining teams. 

The second, final College Bowl game 
was a match with action, suspense, and a 
controversial ending. With only 20 

half, the score was 205 to 190. Marsa's 

"Name the Christian authorofT'/ifCiA' 
of God." was the toss-up question read 
by Haluska in the final seconds of the 
game. Woody While, of Grange's team, 
pushed his buzzer barely before the 
alarm signaled the end of the game.

"1 enjoy signing songs. It's a chal- 
lenge—especially the fast ones." ex- 
plains Murray. 

After talking to Dr. Wohlers in late 
November about her proposal for a sign 
language class, it was approved within a 
month's time because of her outstanding 

"I used 10 help leach a class in Bristol. 

Vermont for high school students who 
were interesied in signing." says Mur- 

She first became fascinated by signing 
al the age of seven, when a hearing- 
impaired couple became members at her 
home church in Bristol. They taught her 
ihe basics, but her interest became so 
intense that she later acquired educa- 
lional books on the subject and began 
teaching herself. 

'"1 become frustrated if I can't commu- 
nicate with people of other langungos. 
So, in order to relieve that frustration. I 
learned signing in case of future 
lers with the hearing-impaired," Murray 

Murray speaks some French. Spanish, 
and Cherokee, but signing is the only 
language she keeps up with. 

Signing for approximately six years 
now, Murray tells o 
which her hobby came in really handy. 
"A friend and I used lo give Bible studies 
in Bristol," she says. "One would give 
the study while the other would listen 
carefully and critique afterwards. Dur- 
ing Ihe studies, if one of us would mn out 
of things lo say or get stuck , the olhe r one 
would sign helpful suggestion: 
the table." 

Murray said that the basics of signing

College honors Taylor 
for decades of service 


William H. Taylor has given decades 
of his life lo make Southern College the 
beautiful and useful institution it is to- 
day. He came to SC in 1958 and had 
served at two other Adventist colleges. 

This behind-the-scenes man was re- 
cently honored with the Quaner-Cen- 
lury Service Award given at the CASE 
District in Conference held in Nash- 
ville. This award, from the Council for 
the Ad vancement and Support of Educa-

Taylor. He holds no special degrees, but 
has relied on God, and urges others who 
would succeed to do the same and then 
■get out and work!" Taylor also stresses 
that success comes only with ; 

approximately S30 million. 

"It gives me a tremendous satisfaction 
to seecollcges grow." says Taylor. "I'm 
glad to have had a part" 

One big project forTaylor was Project

for Ihe conshuciion of Brock Hall. 
Brock Hall presently houses the English. 
history, journalism, an, language, busi-

Six hundred and twenty-five dollars in pxiie 
money was given away at Southern College's 
annual Talent Show in the gym Sunday night. All 
800 seats were filled to witness the program. 

"It lasted long, but die people stayed with us 
because there were no big lags between the acts. 
We got things on and off the stage as soon as 
possible." said SA President Mark Waldrop. 

The March 26 show lasted two hours and 15 
minutes. Three of the 10 acts featured won the

Second semester newcomer Shelly Taylor won 
the first prize of $150. She peri'ormed "Wind

she said. "I'm going to replenish thefunds I use on

The second place winner was Diane Lee, who 
was accompanied by a four-piece band. They 
began practicing the day of the show. Lee said. 
Lee received S75 for singing Whitney Houston's

drama skit was performed during the song that 
enacted the love story told by the song's lyrics. 
Lee said she will share the money with her group.

"David's humor was great," said Waldrop. "He 
helped keep die people here." 

Waldrop spent 72 hours preparing die show, 
which included two rehersals and arranging the 
programs. among other things. He said the biggest 
problem was that he had to fill in for Rcnee 
Johnson. SA social vice president, who was at* 
tending a wedding. However. "Everything went 
smooth." he said. 

Waldrop said the show cost the SA $175 for 
sound, lighting, and programs. The dean of stu-

There were originally 25 acts, but 15 were elimi- 
nated during the rehersals. said Waldrop. 

Empty tomb gives 
hope to Christians 

I've always enjoyed Easter. When I was in elementary 
school. Easter meant a week of vacaUon to see my step- 
sisters, chocolate bunnies in an Easter basket, and an elabo- 
rate egg hunt throughout the yard that ended in special prizes. 

When I grew older and moved on to academy. I gradually 
forgot the Easter traditions of egg decorating and no longer 
expected an Easter basket filled with the familiar pink and yel- 
low marshmallow bunny treats. Instead, Igrewtoappreciate 
Easter as an important religious holiday— a celebration of the 
mirade of Christ's death and resurrection. 

This year, Easter has taken on a special, new meaning (or 
me During the past two weeks, several tragedies struck very 
dose to home for the first time in my life, A vibrant . energetic, 
dose friend was killed in a motorcycle accident. 

His life was taken instantly— without the slightest forewam- 

The very next day. my 19-year old cousin was diagnosed as 
having a disease called systemic lupus, which attacks the im- 
mune system. There is no known cure and little understand- 
ing of the disease. 

Again, the astounding news was preceded by no warning 
signals, no little red "danger" flags, 

Everybody knows tragedies like these happen all the time, 
I read about death and disease in the newspaper every day. 
So why did these particular cases catch me off guard? 

Maybe because they struck dose enough to home that 1 
m^lf began to feel vulnerable to the death and pain that sin 
brings. If disaster can strike at my close friend or my cousin, 
it can just as easily strike me. 

Thus, (he familiar miracle of Christ's death and resurrection 
also begins to gel more personal. I appreciate so much more 
fully his sacrifice and victory at the cross. 

Because I'm a Christian, I do have hope. The death that 
binds my friend is no stronger than the death that bound my 
Savior on that first Good Friday long ago. And because He 
nsse and lives again, the grave of every child of His will soon 
be as empty as His was on that first Easter Sunday.

' $70,0 

Several major changes in Lynn Wood 
Hall have been made through the years. 

In 1 924, the student organization put on 
a campaign to raise $5,000 for a healing 
system. Tlien, when the science building 
was erected, the space previously used by 
the chemistry laboratory provided 
needed office space. Also, ihe physics 
laboratory, the store, and the post of- 
fice — all housed in Lynn Wood's base- 
ment were eventually moved, making 

additional classrooms available. 

In 1 956, the chapel of Lynn Wood Hall. 
which then contained the administration 

offices, was remodeled and enlarged- 
The student association's drive for new 
seats was known as the "SofI Scats 
Campaign." When chapel convened on 
Jan, 4. 1957, money, for the seats came 
through donations, appropriation from 
the Southern Union Conference, and 
even digging into their own pockets. 

In 1967, the new administration build- 
ing presently called Wright Hall was 
built and administrative offices wen- 
moved out of Lynn Wood Hall. The 
move provided more classroom-ipace 
and offices for teachers until Lynn Wood 
Hall closed down in ihesummer of 1984, 
100 old for repairs.

New club offers chance to perfect nautics 

By Tina Frist 

-We're going lo make the oiher clubs on campus look 
dull." said Mark Peel, ihe major organizer of ihe dub. 
Peel is working in conjunction with Ron Barrow, in- 
stnicior of Soulhem's sailing class, and Marcie 
Woolsey, SC biology professor. 

SC's sailing class will continue to be pan of the 
curriculum. The purpose of ihe sailing club is to give 
those who have finished Ihe class an opportunity to 
continue perfecting their skills. 

Once Ihe club is in operation, anyone can become 
involved in Ihe clubafter they pass a check-point proce- 
dure that will deiemiine their skills and experience. 
Students that pass the regular saihng class won't be 
charged when they lake a boat out to sail- 

Southem College is the only school in the area with a 
sailing program, according to Barrow. "True education 
includes training for constructive ways to use free 
time." he says. Barrow adds that the Chattanooga area 
is one of the most conducive to the sport. 

"In three years 1 have taught 1 1 8 students in my sailing 
classes here," Barrow said. "Only one couldn't com- 
plete the class because of severe water-phobia. Sailing 
is something anyone can do and learn to enjoy!" 

Many of Chattanooga's wealthy skippers see South- 
ern as Ihe only institution in the area to perpetuate the 
skill of sailing. They are desperate for crew and are 
presently using kids and grandparents for lack of help. 
Bairow said. 

The situation not only gives students Job avenues, but 
creates a golden opportunity lo make a statement as a 
Christian institution to anon-Christian public, says Bar- 


ing is a sport that di 

't involve CI 

Southern College owns this sailing hoatfoi 
members of the sailing class or club. 

"You are mainly racing against the clock." Barrow 

The club needs more boats, which will only come 
after students join the club. Some local individuals 
have already expressed a desire to donate their exper- 
tise and sailboats to the club (not the class], said 
Barrow. These donations will be accepted as soon as 
the club is established. 

Students pay a SIOO fee to join the sailing class. 
Previously these dollars went into a general physical 
education fund. Nowsutdenlsinlhesailingclubwillbe 
in control of funds and activities. 

Anyone interested in joining the club can call Mark

Mandarin system

Since Sydney was installed in May of 1987, both

By David Denton 

. Not 

I've always haled spring br 

but because t couldn't stand listening to 
people [ell me how much fun they had 
while I invariably had to work, 

I never leamed my lesson, though, 
,\fler eveiy spring break. I would always 
slip up and ask somebody about their 
vjcalion. The conversation usually 
went something like the following: 

Mf So, ho

[he Bahamas, The hotels there are so 
nice; they really pamperyou! When we 
aol back I caught a plane to Maine and 
went lobster fishing with my uncle, who 
owns three boats and gave me a ticket for 
a Universal Studios tour. So naturally, 
that meant I had to catch a plane to Los 
Angeles, which was really neat because 
some guy tried to hijack us. but I tripped 
him when he wasn't looking so the air- 

cute guys I met in Hollywood — I can't 
remember their namesexactly bull think 
they were movie stars, I know one of 
them was named Tom and he had really 
cute black hair — anyway we went to 
Hawaii and I saw the streets where diey 
used to have all those car chases on 
Hawaii 5-0. I had a lot fun, but I'm glad 
to be back at school. What about you; 
what did you do for break? 

Me: Oh. I had a great time! I got to 
watch Little Debbies go by at about 30 
cakes a minute, although on Thursday 
we did get up to 32 cakes a minute. Oh. 
and Friday the dough tank overflowed. 

This year, however, spring break was 
different. I took off work and went to 
Florida with the Destiny Drama Com- 
pany. We had nine performances sched- 

svith pleasui^. And. believe me. it was 
true leisure. This being my fifth — and 
probably last — year in Destiny. 1 wanted 
to make sure Ilet my friends know how 
much I appreciate them. Because of the 
people in Destiny, this has been Ihe best 
year, and best spring break. I've ever

Who cares what Mrs. White says; 
Is there anything she doesn't say? 

By C. David Wlngale 

Take a moment to imagine a place in 
time before ours. You've returned 
home from an exhausting hunting trip. 
You are tired and hungry. You fling 
the prized fowl you've just captured 
i the kitchen table. "Alright 
chop it up and cook it; I'm hun-

Get that thing out of 

"You n 


Oh mom, I don't have time for thai;

Whenever she started a sentence off

You know what Mr. Moses says 
about eating blood," she continues. 

Walking away with supper upon 
our shoulder, you mumble under

Mr. Moses says that. Is there anything 
Mr. Moses doesn't say?!" 

Sound familiar? 

When I was first baptized into the 
message of Jesus, I had a little trouble 
with thisMrs. White business (that and

Our college is different from any other 
college- We have a mission. Along with 
the gift came responsibility. Let's sacri- 
fice a few years of worldly fun for an 
eternal life of having a heavenly blast. 

I feel thai people who see Jesus as a 
rigid, stem individual will have apleasant 
surprise when He comes again. When 
there are no more dangers of sin. then the

Acts tells us that before the Spirit of 
Pentecost came down with power upon 
the believers, they became "of one ac-

good to Jesus, they had to come into 
unity of feeling, thoughl, and action. 

If coming into "one accord" is a pre- 
requisite for the Latter Rain, then by all

12 painiings and eight drawings for the exhibit. 

Though the two artists have combining their exhibit. 
they have diverse styles and personal art-expressive 
enjoyments. Mixon finds abstract artwork more pleas- 
urable using contemporary designs, and bold, brilliant 
colors. By seeing objects or pictures which remind her 
of other things, as well as by observing other artists' 
works, she becomes inspired, she said. 

Wooten. who enjoys Patrick Nacgle's pieces, says 
his works reflect a civilized style with more of an 
emphasis on people.

toured Ihe exhibit on its opening night. "They showed 
a lot of character-both of the artist and subject." 

"Following graduation, Mixon plans to teach art on a 
secondary education level. "The exhibit is basically 
arranged for necessary exposure, as well as bemg a 
requirement for my degree," she said.

Lack of strong 
job placement 
robs graduates 
of opportunity 

By KevinGep ford 

When Kraig Black began looking for a job in Febru- 
ary of his final semester at Southern College, he was in 
for a nasty surprise. His resume was substandard, his 
interviewing skills needed polish, and all local jobs in 
his area were already taken by students from nearby 
colleges. Four months and 10.000 miles later. Black 
finally landed a job with Vantage Real Estate in Dallas, 

Black graduated with honors from Souihem College 
in 1988. After applying four years of study toward his 
BE A degree in accounting. Black says. "My education 
was definitely beiier-ihan-average. but what use was it

Farewell Editorial 

By Debbie Clark 


Beware of cliques 

IS large and 

Since Adam's Rrsl nap, man has required ihe presence of 
companions to help keep his spirits up. In fac ->"•- ""'•'■ 'he 
beginning of lime known to us, people have nee 
to help carry ihc load of this life. 

There is a problem creeping inlo our campus 
powerful. II is ihe ever present, ever excluding clique. 

A clique is not always made up of the people who dnve a nice car 
or happen lo like wearing duckhead pants or jusi got a new Rolex. 

In fact some of the more affluent aren'i even in on the clique. 

The cliques can be found in almost any walk of life and excludes 

people from a group.which goes against all religious standards. 
The cliques can attack anyone-from the most innocent to the 

Sometimes its the students who waA three jobs and take 2 1 hours 
a week who fmd themselves in the clique. Or. it could be the 
theology major who can not wait to tell the world about Jesus, but 
won't even say "hi" to Marvin at the Campus Kitchen. Or it could 
be the sociology major who wants to work with orphans, but can't 
stand the person down the hall. 

Life in a clique is not made up of Preps or country boys or even 
Forest Lake Academy graduates. Cliques are made up of people 
who can't see farenough past the surface of their own shell lo bnng 
another imo the conversation at the supper table. 
The clique is a lifestyle we choose when we select our fnendsand 
who we with to associate with. It seems easy to Just to ignore the 
needs of others, and they will go away. 
Theywill! BulthEnagain.somay the person you will need some 

There are countless checkpoints in life— mo- 
ments when summary and evaluation of the past 
seems bolhappropriaieandnecessary. Theclose 
of this school year is one such natural checkpoint, 
for in one week well over half of us will leave 
Southern College. Some will leave for a couple 
of weeks andoihers forjust the summer, but some 
of us will be gone forever. 

In this fmal issue of SoiifAer/i Accent Volume 
44 we have tried totouchonafewofthis year's 
memorable moments, in addition to our regular 
news coverage. I hope that in the upcommg 
week, each SC student will do his or her own 
evaluation of what made this year unique. 

The Accent itself has undergone many changes 
this year, due in large part to the change of 
editorship at the end of first semester. But I can 
speakforboth Kevin andmyselfin staling thaiihe 
main purpose of this year's paper was to be a 
siudem newspaper which accurately reflected 
and responded to the thoughts and activities of Ihe 
people it served. 

As I look through the seven issues that have 
been produced this semester. I'm thrilled to see 
the names of 1 03 SC students appearing in Accent 
mastheads, story bylines, letters to the editor, or 
photo bylines. We thank each of you for putting 
your time and effon into making the Southern 
Accent a much more interesting and well- 

rounded sludenl newspaper. 

The Southern Accent staff mis semester tias 
been tremendous and as editor I'd like to thank 
each member for the thousands of long hours 
spent, collectively, working with vinually no 
monetary compensation. I'm forever grateful to 
each one for supporting the paper through thick 
and thin, compliments and criticisms. 

I'm deeply indebted lo first semester editor 
Kevin Waite for the many hours he spent leach- 
ing me the entire publication process and for re- 
programming the Southern Memories computer 
when our hard disk was stolen, so that this last 
issue could be made possible. I'd also like to 
thank Ron Smith. SC journalism professor, for 
lending the Accent his newspaper expertise, lay- 
out suggestions, and overall support. 

Remembering the days when we felt tired and 
discouraged, the Accent staff would tike to thank 
those who gave us encouragement, moral sup- 
port, and helpful suggestions on so many occa- 
sions. We would like to thank the teachers who 
didn't seem to mind helping us make up tests 
missed because of deadlines, the deans who 
understood our need for numerous late leaves, 
and the faculty and administration who were 
always willing to give helpful advice and gram 

Last of all, I'd like to commend Southern 
Accent editor-elect John Caskey for deciding lo 
nin for the office. It is my burden that the students 
of Southern College will continue to have a cam- 
pus newspaperin which they can voice their opin- 
ions and have their writing published. 1 wish him 
the best of luck in preparing for nest year.

director of the "89 show, promises some 
special surprises for ihis year's audi-

sequence, natural sound effects and 
original soundtracks. 

These features will combine with in- 
credible synchronization of music and

emotions pertaining to the '88-'89 
school year. Minnick described the 
compilation of ideas with a remark that

Strawberry Fesiival is geared toward 
Ihe students of SC during the '88-'89 
school year. This "larger than life" re- 
production of Ihe year's highlights is an 
attempt to show ihe students some great 
aciivitiesthat they missed with the hopes 
they will decide to reium next year and 
panicipaie in the SA activities. 

Although Minnick's staff is unpaid, he 
has been fortunate to have good help 
from dedicated students such an Kenny 
Zill (next year's director), Ervin Brown, 
Ed Schneider, and Bill Fentress. Min- 
nick also gets advice from Doug Walter 
of WSMC. George Turner of the public 
relations department, Gary Hoover of 
Sound Imagination, and Terry Cantrell. 

One difficulty in production is the 
problem of capturing all the special 
moments on film, Minnick estimated 
ihat for every good picture shot, four 
better ones get away unfilmed.

5-year education program 
approved for 1992 curriculum 

By Tony Thedford 

A new five-yearelemenlary educaiion 
program will begin for the 1991-1992 
school lerm. Beginning in the fall of 
1991. freshmen elemeniary education 
majors who complete their study ai 
Southern College will graduate with a 
masters in elemeniary education. 

Dr. Gerald Colvin. chairman of the 
education department, said one of the 
reasons for the program is the sute of 
Tennessee's action in 1992 to discon- 
tinue the four-year elementary educa- 
tiondegrees. Thesiaiewillrequirefour- 
year elementary education students lo 
have degrees in arts and sciences. Be- 
cause the state will still accept five-year 
degrees in education, "we thought it was 
the way to go." said Colvin. 

Colvin said he also wanLs education 
students from SC to have the advantage 
of a masters degree. 

In December, the college board ap- 
proved the plans to build a masters pro- 
gram, and expects it to begin in two

"This coming school 
build the curriculum toward the five- 
year program. We need to work closely 
with the Southern Association of Col- 
leges and Schools for approval of the 
program. We will also submit our pro- 
gram to the state for accreditation. The 
date for that hasn't been set yei," said 
Colvin. "We hope we'll be approved." 

New faculty are needed for the pro- 

gram. The department has hired Dr. 
John Green . who is head of the education 
department at East Africa University. 
He will be joining the faculty in August. 
Also. Mrs. Helen Sauls, whose husband 
will chair the journalism department, 
will teach at least part-time, according to 

Mrs. Carol Haynes, who is presently 
teaching in the department, will serve 
half-lime as the director of the Teacher 
Learning Center, said Colvin. 

Colvin will no longer be teaching psy-

He worked in his father's upholstering 
business when ii was begun on the CUC

still operating today and is the college's 
main industry, according to Dr. Sahly, is 
where he did all his student work. From 
1966-1968 he helped his father and

"My husband feels that besides acollege 
education, it's also important to learn a 
trade," said Mrs. Sahly. 

"You have the satisfaction of doing 
something with your hands, looking 
back on it, and being proud, ' said 
Quentin of his skills. He went on to say 
that the work gives him a chance to talk 
to his dad a lot. "It helps me understand

Mrs. Sahly said she enjoys the time

Talge purged 
of contraband 

By Keith Juhl 
1 of Men Ron Qualley recently 
conducted a search in Talge Hall of 
rooms that were reported to contain 
illegal contraband. 

After weeks of hearing rumors that 
several rooms contained contraband, 
Qualley confiscated various items. 
ranging from televisions lo porno- 
graphic magazines from four rooms. 

"It's not something I always do," 
said Qualley, "but I can't ignore in- 
formation without checking it out." 

The dean was well within his rights 
to search rooms — with or without 
probably cause — according to the 
Right of Entry authorization on page 
1 1 of the Souihem College Student 
Handbook. Il stales. 'The college 
reserves the right for a residential hall 
dean, his representative, or a college 
security officer to enter and inspect w 
sludent'sroom whenever necessary." 

The Student Handbook defines 
contraband as anything students are 
told to leave at home by the deans or 
things that are contrary to the relig- 
ious beliefs of the college. Some 
specific items include rock posters, 
fireworks, televisions, video camera 

pornographic magazines. 

One anonymous student, who was 
found to have contraband in his room, 
said he understood that his television 
was indeed against school policy, but 
felt there was little or no reason for 
taking it because "we only got one

Kelkile, refugee from Ethiopia, 
finds success in Collegedale 

By Tony Thedford 

Sharew Abate Kelkile will celebrate 
his one- year anniversary for being a U.S. 
resident ihis weekend. 

Kelkile, formerly a Ethiopian refugee, 
came to this country through Bridge 
Refugee Services. Ron Smith, assistant 
professor of SC"s journalism depart- 
ment, got Kelkile from the Atlanta air- 
port and brought him to his home. 

Smith, acting as a volunteer sponsor in 
the program, was to provide room and 
board for a refugee fora maximum of six 
monihs, or until the refugee can make it 
on his own. Nine years ago, Smith 
sponsored two Vietnamese refugees. 

Kelkile proved to be easy to sponsor, 
according to Smith. "As soon as he 
arrived. Sharew was anxious to find a 
job." he said. Within two weeks, Kelkile 
was hired as a security guard, and has 
since found a job at an athletic equip- 
ment company. 

Afier three months with the Smiths, 
Kelkile was able to get his own apart- 
ment here in Collegedale. "He pur-

Dan Jensen, who attended Southern College for three 
years from 1984 to 1987. is currently enrolled ai the 
College of St. Thomas in Si. Paul, Minn., which has 
over6.000students. ■■Whilelwasastudemmissionary

U em ploy men L St. 
TTiomas has an excellent business program which is 
well-respected in the twincilies,"saysJensen. "But the 
thing that really attracted me was the description in its 
bulletin of the placement program," he said. 

Sl Thomas has devoted an entire floor of one build- 
ing lo its "Career Resource Center" which is staffed 
with six full-timejobplaccment and career counselors. 
Currently, over 800 alumni are registered at the center 
for students to visit at work and ask questions. Some 
of these alumni are also potential employers. 
The Career Resource Center at Sl Thomas is so busy 
that Jensen had to wait three weeks for an hour-long 
interview. The center conducts mock interviews, or- 
ganizes job fairs, provides video in.struciion on resume 
writing and interviewing, and coordinates a Career 
Week with special speakers each day. says Jensen. 

Jensen, who is finishing his junior year, says that 
"during orientation they told us the whole point of 
being al this college was lo gel ajob. To tiiat end. we 
needed lo start planning for our first jobs at the begin- 
ningofourjunioryear.Theirsuppon program gives all 
the help you could want in getting Uiai job," says 

"Southern College didn't give me that confidence. It 
didn't nurture me for any job besides a denominational 
one," says Jensen. 

St. Thomas has a strong enough reputation in the 
local community that major employers make recruit- 
ing visits to campus. Pepsi. UPS, 3M and other major 
manufacturing and retailing firms visit ihroughout the 
year to interview students. One major accounting firm 
even visited campus to give mock i 

e attempt ii 

Wohlers. vice presidenl of student affairs. "But it's 
tough because we are still in a buyers market, and small 
college like us are aia disadvantage. I think that the Job 
Fair held early this semester gave us strength in banding 
together with other small local colleges." 

The Career and Job Fair, held at the Cleveland Holi- 
day Inn Feb. 10. was a big siep toward improving 
Southern College's career placement services, says 
Wohlers, The fair featured about 35 area employers 
and several speakers who spoke on finding jobs wiih 
the government and evaluating job offers. About 60 
students attended, and several held interviews with 
prospective employers. 

The problem wiih getting regular recruiters on cam- 
pus, says K.R. Davis, director of testing and counsel- 
ing, is that corporations are cutting back on expenses, 
and recruitment at smaller schools does not seem worth 
the cost to them. Davis says that the best placement 
services are provided by individual departments on 
campus, most notably the business, education, nursing 
and theology departments. 

"We really nee^^ fulfil the statement tiiat 'a liberal 
education makes y3u employable'." says Wohlers. 
"Our liberal arts departments need lo gel into tiie mode 
of thinking about job placement, beyond their tradi- 
tional objective of steering students into leaching posi- 

Iheextra things during Iheircollege career that will help 
ihem market themselves when they graduate." 

Davis says he does not remember any Southern Col- 
lege students complaining about the type or scope of 
services offered to graduating seniors. While under- 
classmen commonly use the testing and counseling 
office to select a major, few seniors visit lo ask for help 
in finding ajob. Beth Malgady, secretary in the testing 
and counseling office, says "We added a new compu- 
terized se rvicefordisiributing resumes, butfew seniors 
have used it even though it was advertized in both die 
Chatter and Accent." 

This service, known as the Human Resource Infor- 
mation Network, is a computer data base into which 
job-seekers may put their resumes. The data base is 
used by many Fonune 500 companies, says Davis, as 

part of their effort to find suitable employees. 

Davis has contacted a California-based company 
which maintains a bank of information on job openings 
in major corporations and branch offices. The com- 
pany provides this service specifically to educational 
institutions, and is expanding eastward. Southeni 
College plans to use its services once they become 
available in this area. 
The Counseling Center, located in the student center, 
maintains a bulletin board of job openings which are 
sent to the S.C. testing office by government agencies, 
schools and companies. Other services include resume 
writing and interviewing seminars and videos on how 
to get a job. The office also publishes annually a

graphical data of graduating seniors, I 

"What I'd really like to see." says Ron Barrow, vice 
presidenl for admissions, "would be lo have a profes- 
sional resume writer give a seminar to our students on 
what to include orexclude on Iheirresumes." Southern

This year 275 placement books were printed, and j
