of the increased enrollment is the admis-

number of hours permitted, there is the 
increased freshmen orientation, and stu-

The justification for Ihe admission of 

students on academic probation does not 
come from the increased funds received 
from tuition or from the prestige of 
having more students. According to Dr. 
Greenleaf, the justification comes from 
ihepurposeofChristianeducaiion. The 
purpose of Christian education is not 
only academic but evangelical. 

Dr. Greenleaf assures thai Ihe accep- 
tance of students on academic probation 
will in no way endanger Ihe school's 
academic reputation as no student will

"A mon can stand olmosl any-

On a recent, rainy afternoon 
someone said to me. 'This place 
sure is boring, I can't wait until 

" What' s going to happen in De- 
cember?' I asked, 

"School will be out and I can go

We hove all experienced bore- 
dom at one time or another in our 
lives, But, I imagine very few of us 
have ever taken the time to con- 
sider the cause of this creeping

state of being fired by repetition 
or tediousness. To put if another

some teacher teaching the 
same subject on the same days 
of the week for weeks on end. If 
would seem all of us should be 
victims of terminal ennui. 

Why is it, then, that some of us 
profess to be bored more fre- 
quently than others? Theonswei 
to this question requires a better 
definition of boredom. 

For me, the definition of bore- 
dom is failure to take advantage 
of the moment. We are all guilty 

of this to some extent, 
fake advantage of the moment 
every time we wish we were 
somewhere else or that the situ- 
ation were different in the place 
we happen tobe. Perhaps things 
could be 'better" if conditions 
were different: however, in dwell- 
ing on our wishes for the future, 
we rob ourselves of the present. 
Albert Einstein said. "I never think 
of the future, if comes soon

Dean Qualley did Ihe painling and much of Ihe other

new expanded office will provide a proper place to hold 
staff meetings and "more room for guys lo come in and

work in Dean Hobbs' office that remains unfinished, 
the other offices are now coplete thanks to the efforts of

Does something look diffcrcntin the Student Center? 
Isn't something strange going on in there? Hasn't the 
appearance of the Student Center changed? Students 
are asking about Ihe Studeni Center, Several changes 
have been made in the parlor, the game room, the 
parlor, ihe game room, and the Student Association 

At the end of last school year, the parlor was re- 
carpeted and the sofas and chairs were re-apolstered. 
This summer, a game room, formerly the workroom of 
Ihe Strawberry Festival, was the major sight of recon- 
struciion. The blinds, painl, pictures, and planis have 
all been changed, and according to Beth Malgadey. a 
pool table, ping-pong tables, and air hockey game are 
all soon to come. 

The latest change in the Student Center has been Ihe 
relocation of the Student Association offices. The S.A, 
offices are now divided into two separate parts. The 
president, secretary, and Ihe treasurer are in one office.

things you can accomplish during the 
school year. We have some projects 
that definitely need to be accom- 
plished. We need some repairs done 
on this campus, particularly in the dor- 
mitories. We're using rooms that we 
haven't used for several years. Those 
rooms need refurbishing. They need 
carpet. They 

things. The income from the addi- 
tional students provides a means to 
accomplish these things, not just the 
dorms, but also equipment for labora- 
tories and classroom facilities and so 
on. We can begin to look forward 
positively lo accomplishing some 
things as we did last year. As you 
know last year we totally refurtiished 
Summerour Hall and we need to look 
'■ nursing building and other 

nity. That's not going to happen right 
away, but the capacity of the institu- 
tion is probably an enrollment of 
2.000, We would really be crowded 
at that pace. There would not be any 
more room available.

The demographic data that the De- 
partment of Education produces indi- 
cates a decline in the pool of 17-to- 
18-yearHDlds, the high school gradu- 
ates. Across the nation, starting in 
1991-94 or '95. there's supposed to 
be a three-year dip. However, the 
Southeastern United States is grow- 
ing rapidly. The population is in 
transition. The North and the Mid- 
west are moving to the Southeast 
are. So we have a chance of riding 
through that slump without feeling 
the significant decline that well be 
felt elsewhere. However, there's no 
question that some of ou

places and I don't know if we can 
make it through the year without 
seeing some significant problems. 
So we're looking to see how much 
it's going to cost to redecorated, 
I'm not sure if we'll do it this year, 
but at least it's on our agenda. 
We're also talking about purchas- 

a 1966 or '67 model. It's small 

one. So there'salot of things that 
we're looking at, and we'll try to 
keep the paper informed so you 
can inform the student body as we 
decide to move ahead on these 

We need to tell all the good 
things that we can. Do you have 
any major changes in mind as far 
as policies or rules? 

There have been no real signifi- 
cant policy changes from 1st year 
to this year. The dormitory rules, 
the dress codes, and so on have

How much Is enTollment u| 
last year? 

We don't have a final figu 
cause we don't finalize 
until the end of the week. The final 
count last year was 1326 students. 
We're still building toward a final 
number but it's presently at about 
1410 students, which is an increase 
of 84. I understand that there were 
about 12 more students, who have 
registered since registration, so we 
would be up to about 96 more stu- 
dents than last year. We atso have 
more full-time students and fewer 

■ full-ti 

students coming from outside of the 
Southern Union and that's where 
we'reshowingourbiggestgains. The 
closing day of enrollment, we had 49 
more students from outside the 
Southern Union than we had last 
year, I think students from other 
places are finding this an attractive 
college, mainly because we have 
several things going for us. First of 

; in Berrien Spnngs or Bos- 

think these two factors have at- 
tracted students in the past few 

we're working on. One is to see t 
completion of (he Lynn Wood H 

I think so. It seems like things 
are going well. I was impressed 
today when we went to assembly, 
I was told that there were 1.200 
chairs on the floor and I counted 
nearly 100 students standing in 
theback. Thafsagoodstartwhen 
we have about 1500-f students on 
campus, including part-time and 

some have work programs and 
other things where they're ex- 
cused from assembly attendance. 
Another area of interest is the 
cafeteria, I was told that 700 
students showed up for supper on 
Tuesday night after registration. 
That's the largest supper group in 
the cafeteha in along time. All 
these things make for a good stu- 
dent body and a good school year. 

Along a different line, how do you 
see Southern wtth other colleges in 
terms of student finances? 

with the e)rtras 
registering, it looks like it may get up 
to 105 or even a little beyond that. 

What Is the total enrollment ca- 
pacity of the college? How many 
students do we have room for? 

Well. I understand that historically.

However, students often apply to 
more than one college — sometimes 
three or four more — to see which 
college offers the best scholarships 
and the best financial aid packages. 
That directs them, so we always know 
we have more applications that ac-

schools. We had a good year last 
year. We had an increase in enroll- 
ment and we kept our budget as tight 
as we could, so the school showed a 
small net gain. However, we have 
some debts to pay. When they built 
the dorms back in the late 70s and 
Brock Hall in the early 80s, they took 
mortgages on them and so we have a 
2.5 million dollar debt. A sizable por- 
tion of our net gain that we gel from

income and greater debts. However, 
when I look at Southwestern's finan- 

buildings like we have. Financially, 
they're quite stable as well, though 
they have a much smaller program 
and a much smaller school. We at 
Southern feel very comfortable in that

debt load is moderate and we're able 
to manage well with the finances we

the Church of God college, we have 
about the same enrollment but they 
only offer 20 majors. Instead of 
having 130 faculty as we do, they 
teach those 20 majors with only 75. 
That gives them more financial stabil- 
ity. Our weakness is that we try to 

complish so much with what we've 
got and that kind of puts us in a 
stretch all the time. We talk upenroll-

Speeding expensive in more ways than one 

By Jo-Anne E. Stevenson 

On the opposite side of the road, a deep blue 1985 
Honda Prelude lay in the gutter. As it had swung out 
of control, the car rolled and with a brief hesitation, 
rested on its roof. When all was silent, the driver 
unleashed himself from his seaibeit. With enormous 
effon he pulled himself out of the car through the open 
sunroof.. .and passed out. 

This is the story which Jason Rivera, a freshman ai 
Southern College, will tell you. He will tell you that 
ihe loose gravel on the side of the road was partly 
responsible for his accident. But, he will also tell you 
that he was speeding as he turned the curve that day. 

Rivera, is probably only one of the many who speed 
on the rural roads of Collegedale every day. Every 
licensed driver has read or heard about the dangers of 
speeding. But how do drivers act on the information 
they recieve? Authorities have posted speed limits to 
remind them. Yet, even with the clearly posted speed 
limits on both rural roads and major highways, speed- 
ing remains a problem. 

Statistics tell us that speeding is the biggest factor in 
fatal accidents throughout Tennessee. Other research 
shows that your chances of being involved in an 
accident are much greater when your speed exceeds 

the posted speed limit; hov

have a chance to be more active than in years past," he 
said. Romero spoke of the senate as "not just a social

called attention to die increase in the number of pre-

probably does nol say anything

does not sell Coca Cola either,

enough, one can purchase 
Vivarin, an

caffeine equivalent to the

Up to the students 
again, Video 
Yearbook 1989-90 

In 1922. at the administrative councilf 
Southern Junior College, two students, 
Merwin Thurtier and Robert Cowdrick, 
took their places among 
tors. They had come to present 
dent body's desire to have a printed year- 

This was not the first lime the subject 
had shown up on the Ad Council's 
agenda. During the Lynn Wood admini- 
stration, the proposed annual had been 
rejected on the grounds that such a proj- 
ect would be "copying the world." Now. 
with the college under the progressive 
leadership of the new president, Leo F. 
Thiel, the students again attempted to 
make their wishes known. 

It is often said that history repeats 
itself, and if one takes a second took, it is 

coming strikingly similar to the historic 
1922-23 school year. Again Ad Council 
has met to discuss a yearbook idea initi- 
ated by students, this time a video year- 

Asin 1922, this year'sadministration 
has been very supportive of the idea. 
Yet. as in the past, money remains a 
problem. In 1922. it was voted that the 
yearbook project not be funded by the 
college, but rather by the students them- 
selves. Jesse Cowdrick was one of those 
students. "We all pitched in our own 
money, two or three dollars, which was 
a lot back dien..,U wasn't covered by the 
tuition or anything." 

Now it is up to the students again. The 
Video Yearbook '90 production budget 
is solely funded by up-front student

Campus Clubs aie among the extracurricular activities 
available at Southern College. 

In the Biology department there are three interre- 
lated organizations: Tri Beta Kappa Phi, The Biology 
Club, and The Pre-med Club. According to Ihe club 
sponsor. Dr. Marcia Woolsey, Tri Beu is an honors 
society for biology and other closely related majors. 
She listed the club's two main functions as, a social 
club providing an opponunity for fellowship, and an 
organizailon responsible for providing its members 
with curreni information relevant lo the field of biol- 
ogy. Tri Beta is an international organization. The

berg. Vice-prsidenl, Andrea Achenbach, Secreairy 
Siefanie Scrvoss, Trea.surer, Shenie Burk, and Histo- 
rian. Eileen Lopez. The Biology Club is a separate 
organization, although, according to club prsident, 
Jeff Vian, both clubs coordinate many of their activi- 
ties. Among the activities he mentioned were cam- 
pouts, and meetings with guest speakers lecturing on 
topics in biology. Jeff is also a member of the newly 
formed Pre-med Club. He said thai the primary func- 
tion of the club was to provide an opporluniiy for its 
members lo be exposed to the medical profession. He 
said a possible activity could be witnessing a surgery.

Q; Why is a high fiber diet related to a reduced risk of colon cancer? 

First of all. for those who are not familiar with what a 

ine. C:ertain foods such as red meats, fatty foods, and th( 

of chemicals and preservatives, including some artificially 


Uiese foods remain in the colon for long 

periods of time before excreuon. As chemical breakdown takes place so does 
something similar to decaying. This process causes damage to the lining of the 
le, affects normal eel' growth, and allows for absorption of carcinogens- 
producing agents, D.eiary fiber helps our systems sweep out the poisons 
from die colon and reduces the time these particles remian there. This m turn, 
reduces our risk of developing colon cancer, as confirmed by Nutrition m Perspec- 
tive by Kreuder. According to Whitney & Hamilton's book. Understanding

ZoUtgt, Iht Srveilb-da) ^ 

By David Denton 

There are those of you, 
I'm sure, who will be a bit 
surprised that I am dealing 
with the subject of this ar- 
ticle. I do not usually write 
about religious things, not 
from a lack of interest, but 
due to the controversial 
nature of the subject. There- 
fore, let me offer this dis- 
claimer: This article was 
suggested by a facuhy mem- 
ber (who shall remain name- 
less), and was suggested last 
school year. It has taken me 
nearly a year to decide I 
wanted to follow up on this 
teacher's suggestion. 

It was pointed out to 
me (as I said, a year ago) that 
there is an interesting, and 
ironic, situation existing on 
our campus. To be more 
specific, in the "Garden of 
Prayer." For those of you un- 
familiar with the "Garden of 
Prayer," it is a lovely spot, 
filled with trees and grass and 
benches, as well as squirrels 
and other assorted objects of 
nature, such as flowers and 
the hke. 

There are three points 
of interest in this garden. The 
first is a quotation from Ellen 
White's little book, "Steps to 
Christ," which is engraved on 
wood and stands at the back 
of the garden. Directly 
opposite this sign is a cross- 
section of a very old tree, 
upon which have been laced 
little markers showing how 
historical events stand in 
relation to the age of the tree. 
It's a very interesting exhibit. 

The most intere.sting 
part of the garden, from the 
point-of-view of this article 
anyway, is the third point of 
interest, the Ten command- 
ments. Engraved on wood, as 
the "Steps to Christ" quota- 
tion was. the Ten Command- 
ments stand tall in the most 
beautiful comer of the gar- 
den. All the Commandments 
are there, and, if you look 
closely, you'll see something 
else is too. Nailed right 
smack dab in the middle of 

the Decalogue is a small, 
wooden cross. 

Now, I wonder. Could 
it be that unintentional 
though it was, this diminish- 
ing of the cross in relation to 
the Law is an illustration of 
what is happening in our 
church today? Those who in- 
sist on elevating the Law of 
God to a higher role than it 
was intended for are, in es- 
sence, acting out that scene in 
the "Garden of Prayer." 

To the Christian who 
truly accepts divine grace, it 
should be, "...the Cross, first, 
last and always. And BE- 
CAUSE of the Cross, the 
Law has meaning." Too 
often we have fallen into the 
trap of believing that the Law 
has the final say as regards 
our salvation, and not the 
Cross. If the Law has the 
final say in my life, then I'm 

As Christians, particu- 
larly as Seventh-day Advent- 
ist Christians, we have been 
at the forefront of those 
opposed to the false doctrine 
which holds that the Ten 
Commandments were nailed 
to the Cross. Unfortunately, 
having rescued the Ten Com- 
mandments from the Cross, 
we have been busily nailing 
the Cross to the Ten Com- 
mandments. Somewhere in 
our little ignorant hearts we 
have continued to suppose 
that the Cross, and its salva- 
tion, is dependent on the Law 
and its observance. In truth, 
it is exactly the other way 
around. The Law and its 
TRUE observance, is depend- 
ent on the Cross and its 

Perhaps I will get 
letters; others have. Perhaps 
some will see me as a propo- 
nent of "New Theology," or 
"Fordism" or whatever the 
term of the day is. But per- 
haps someone else will stop 
nailing the Cross to the Law 
and learn how to serve God 
as a RESULT of salvation, 
rather than to OBTAIN salva- 
tion. If that happens. 1 won't 
be so hesitant to do this the 
.next time. 

Men's Club 
Plans Cruise 

By Suzanne 
, Lett rick 

As the boat 
glides through dark water, 
stars gleam on the people 
strolling the deck. The 
sounds of laughter. 
mingled conversations. 
and Dixieland music float 
through passengers' ears, 
then are left behind in 
darkness as the turning 
paddles urge the Southern 
Belle onward. 

This isn't an 
episode of the Love Boat, 
but it is "A good time to 
show the women that the 
men of Southern College 
have class other than 
third." said Dean Qualley. 

This year, on 
October 15, the men's 
club reinstates its ten- 
year tradition of having a 
Tennessee riverboat 
cruise (Expenses prohib- 
ited this from happening 
last year). 

Those on the 
cruise will enjoy a Mexi- 
can buffet for dinner. En- 
tertainment will "proba- 
bly consist of Dixie music 
played by the 'boat 
people ' , although most 
couples will supply their 
own (entertainment)!" 
said Dean Qualley. Fac- 
ulty won't be paying at- 

For this event, 
both men and women can 
do the inviting but, Qual- 
ley commented, "I think 
the guys should ask the 
girls because it is a Mens' 
Club event, and the girls 
are always complaining 
that the guys never do the 
asking." He went on to 
say that those without 
dates are not excluded, 
but chances are that they 
will feel left out. 

Those wishing 
to go on the cruise, must 
sign up by October 8 with 
any of the men's deans. 
Tickets are $15/single 
person and $30/couple. 

The boat 

leaves Ross' landing at

Covenant Players Perform at 
Southern Clollege 

Crash! In what appeared 
lo be an embarrassing fumble, a 
young man lay on the platform of 
Thatcher Sabbath School. How- 
ever, the audience soon realized 
the accident was only a bit of 
impressive acting which intro- 
duced The Covenant Players to 
Southern College, and taught 
them a lesson as well. 

Comprised of Donna 
Oglesby. director, and three other 
members, the group performed a 
series of four short plays. Each 
play prompted the audience to ask 
themselves, "What does it mean 
to be a Christian?" 

Enjoyable though it was, 
performing at Thatcher Sabbalh 
School was not the main purpose 
for the group's visit on Southern's 
campus. Allan Martin, dircclorof 
the Destiny Drama Company, 
invited The Covenant players to 
help instruct for Destiny's first 
workshop of the year. Over the 
weekend. Destiny and The Cove- 
nant Players spent many hours a 
day working together as they 
learned the seven basics in drama 
ministry. ThiswasDestiny'sfirsi 
time logether as a troupe since 

auditions closed. 

"I've been very happy 
with what The Covenant Players 
have been able to do for us," re- 
ported Martin. 

Based in Oxhard. Los 
Angeles, TTie Covenant Players 
work year-round, traveling 
worldwide to spread their minis- 
try. They are a nonprofit organi- 
zation and are not affiliated with 
any church or other organiza- 
tions. TTieir only financial sup- 
port comes from performing en- 
gagements and gccasional dona- 
tions. Any money earned must 

then pay for all expenses. 

Because Uie players try 
lo keep expenses down, they of- 
ten are not sure how their next 
meal will be financed. Yet 
money does not seem lo be a 
major concern; each member 
works on a full-time basis for 
the group. 

The Covenant Players 
enjoyed their stay, in fact, one 
member was so impressed with 
the attitudes of the students on 
campus thai he expressed a desire 
to take some time off to work with 
Southern College. 

Rape Causes concern . .

to know what happened. Mon- 
day night a suspect was arrested 
but had to be released due to lack 
of evidence. 

When asked about the Sunday 
night incident. Dr. Bill Wohlers, 
Vice-President for Student Serv- 
ices, gave this reminder: "You 
can never take anything for 
granted, even in Collegedale." 

In a special program on sexual 
abuse for Thatcher residents, pro- 
fessionals from the community 
shared their stories and sugges- 
tions forgetting help. Ironically, 
the program was scheduled previ- 
ously. It had no relation to Sun- 

A film. "Shatter the Silence," 
was shown, portraying the life of 

a girl who was a victim of incest. 
TTie film emphasized that there is 
help available. According to the 
film, the victim needs to realize 
that she isn't at fault and 
shouldn't be embarrassed in dis- 
cussing what happened. Also. 
victims should talk to someone, 
and not give up if the first person 
they approach doesn't respond to 
their cries for help. They need to 
look for someone who will be- 
lieve and be willing to help them. 
Group therapy is also helpful by 
showing the victim she is not 
alone in being abused. Shattering 
the silence in talking about what 
happened can start victims on the 
road to recover^'. 

Laura Nyirady, director of 
Nursing, shared thoughts and 
suggestions during this special 

program from a radio program 
entitled, "Victims of Rape." The 
program pointed out that victims 
feel helpless, hopeless, and angry 
as they go through the stages of 
dealing with the anguish. Three 
suggestions from the radio pro- 
gram were: let go of the bitter- 
ness, because keeping it inside 
destroys you. become grateful to 
God for making good out of evil, 
and give God pemiission to for- 
give the perpetrator. Until you 
work through these steps, the hate 
and anger will not leave you. 

"There is no shame in having 
been abused," Robbie Robertson 
says, "but I have never worked 
with anyone who didn't feel 
ashamed, or guilty... It was not 
your fault that you were abused!" 
"If you have been abused and 

are in college," continues 
Robertson, "congratulate your- 
self—you are a survivor." The 
healing process is different for 
each individual. Each is affected 
in a unique way and heals at her 
own pace. Talking with a coun- 
selor will start the healing proc- 

Robertson will be offering indi- 
vidual counseling to those inter- 
ested, and group therapy will 
soon be available. If anyone is 
interested in either or both of 
these therapy sessions, call 
Robertson at 265-2271 exi. 34, 
or see Laura Nyirady in the Nun 
ing Department.

A Letter to the 

Dear Editor, 

Because the 5th Annual South- 
em College Triathlon was held 
totally off campus, not many 
students were exposed to the 
quality race that was put on this 
year by the Physical Education 
Department working with race 
coordinator. Chris Mitchell. 
The planning and preparation 
was evident from the starting 
gun, which went off exactly on 
time at 8:00 a.m. 


marked with buoys as well as 
paddle boats. Plenty of life- 
, guards patrolled the course in 
both canoes and ski boats. The 
biggest improvement was the 
centralized transition area, 
which had bike racks and space 
for changing. Although the 
running and biking courses were 
somewhat shorter this year, the 
roads were well chosen. They 
had very little traffic and excel- 
lent road surfaces. 

* Call security to accom- 
pany you if you need to he 
somewhere on campus after 
dark (i.e. Brock Hall, music 
building. Iibrar>'. etc), 

* Walk with confidence. 
with a specific destinaiion in 

* Checkunderyourvelucle 
before getting near it. 

* When returning to your 
vehicle, have your keys 
ready in your hand and 
check inside the vehicle 
before entering, especially 
in the back seat. 

* When going on a date, be 
sure you know the individ- 
ual well. 

* Never be afraid to say 
"NO!" if someone asks you 
to do something you feel un- 
comfortable doing. 

* Ifsomeone does harm you 
in any way, seek help imme- 
diately. Don't try to handle 
it by yourself. 

Tliank you for a good race!

The Man 

By Tammy Wolcott 

The lights dimmed and 
the spotlight focused on the 
stage. An elderly man with a 
beard appeared at a side door, 
limped onto the stage, sat in an 
antique chair and started to 
write a letter. 

The play, "An Evening 
With James White" was per- 
formed September 30 at the 
Collegedale Church by Larry 
Richardson. Richardson, a 
Cleveland, Tennessee resident, 
works at a retirement manage- 
ment center called American 

Richardson graduated 
from La Sierra, California with 
a B.A. in rhetoric and public 
address, then v/ent on to take his 
Master's and Doctorate. His 
Doctorate emphasis was in 
communication theory, which 
he completed at the University 
of Southern California. 
Richardson and his wife, Becky, 
have two children; Lauren who 
is seven and. Daman who is 
nine years old. 

Since religious plays are 
hard to find, Richardson said he 
wrote a play on Martin Luther 
while teaching Public Address 
at La Sierra, California. "You 


tcnow how hard it is to get a 
group of 35 college students 
together at the same time." said 

"So, I thought. Why not 
do a one man play?" said 
Richardson. He decided to do 
one on a founding father of the 
SDA church. "Ellen White was 
the most obvious but I couldn't 
do her. So I did James," said 
Richardson. "Not many people 
know James and I thought it 
would be historical, original and 
an educational experience. I 
was going to call the play 
James" nickname, 'The Hothead 
at the Review,' but that was too 

After doing the play for 
the past ten years, Richardson 
now only performs the play 
about two or three times a year, 
unlike the 15 times a year when 
he first started in 1979. 
Richardson said that before per- 
forming is like going over the 

hill in a roller c 

"I use all of James 
White's actual words," said 
Richardson while using a cotton 
ball wet with rubbing alcohol to 
take off the make-up and beard 
he wore during his performance. 
"I try to be as faithful to the man 
as possible." 

'The six hours of mate- 
rial I have memorized came 
from many sources. One is the 
autobiography of James White 
entitled. Life Incidents, another 
is Life Sketches, which James 
White wrote part of with his 
wife, Ellen," said Richardson. 
After collecting James White's 
words from these sources, he 
said he organized them and put 
them down on paper. 

Richardson has produced 
a video entitled, "An Evening 
With James White," which may 
be found at the Adventist Book

Making the Grade for your Peak 

By Robert J. 
Kriegel, Ph.D. 

"Overcoming the Gottas" 

Editors note: Robert J. 
Kriegel. Ph.D.— best selling au- 
thor, former All-American ath- 
lete, and mental coach for Olym- 
pic and world class athletes — 
lectures and consults with major 
corporations worldwide on peak 
performance, leadership and 
strategies for dealing with 
change. Kriegel recently took 
part in a national tour of college 
campuses sponsored by the mak- 
ers of Nuprin Pain Reliever. 

The alarm sounds. "6 
a.m. I've really gotta hustle. I've 
gona finish that outline, talk to 
Professor Jones, slop by the lab, 
read 1 00 pages for my noon psych 
class and be at work at 3 p.m." 

Today's college cam- 
puses are pressure cookers. In 
fact, the Nuprin Pain Report, the 
first national study on pain in 
America, documented that more 
people 1 8-24 suffer forms stress 
and pain than any adult age group. 
As I've toured the country 
visiting college campuses, stu- 
dents tell me the m 
causes of their stre 
much to do, too little 
money, relationshipj 
family and career choices. 

So, get rid of stress. 
Right? Wrong. 

Stress is neither good 
nor bad. How you handle it can 
be. Learning to make stress 
work for you can help you con- 
centrate better and think more 
clearly under pressure, have 
more energy, be more creative 
and make college more enjoy- 
But many of us handle 
stress poorly. 

Some people panic and 
work too fast under stress. Others 
procrastinate. Neitherresponseis 
productive and both are caused by 
what I call "sabotage thinking" — 
tions to stressful 
s that work against rather 
than for you. 

Two common types of 
sabotage thinking are: "the got- 
tas" and "the can'ts." 

Let's look at the gottas 
and methods to overcome them. 
The gottas usually occur 
when you think you have too 
much to do and too little lime to do 
it: "Igoltasludy fortwoexams...I 
gotla read two chapters... I golia 

call financial aid about my loan...l 
gottagetadate for Friday night..." 

The gottas make every- 
thing seem harder than it really 
is. You get into the panic zone, 
rushing to get it all done. You 
walk too fast, talk too fast, think 
too fast, write too fast, eat too 

think clearly. You make care- 
less mistakes, blank out on 
exams and forget things you al- 
ready know. Everything seems 
like a life or death proposition. 

I was talking to a junior at 
U-C Berkeley who had a bad case 
of the gottas about a forthcoming 
exam. "I gotta get an A," he said. 
I asked what would happen if he 

"If I don't get an A. I 
won't keep up my 4.0 average- 
Then I'll never get into a really 
good graduate school, and then I 
won't get a top job, and then I'll 
never make a lot of money..." 

By the end of his dis- 
course, not getting an A on this 
test was akin to his life being 

When he stopped and 
thought about what he'd just 
said— that if he didn't ace this test 
his life would be down the 
tubes— he started laughing. "I 
must be crazy." 

He was not crazy, just 
not thinking clearly or realisti- 
cally. Many of us get thai way 
under pressure. This type of 
desperation thinking makes us 
overreact and causes panic. The 
cure is to shift from irrational to 
rational thinking. Do a reality 
check. When you gel the gottas 
take a deep breath, exhale 
slowly and ask yourself, ":Whal 
is the worst thing that could pos- 
sibly happen?" and "How likely 
is that to happen?" 

This type of reality 
thinking puts the gottas in per- 

spective. Sure, not getting an A 
would be a drag, but it wouldn't 
be the end of the world nor 
would it land this A student in 
the ranks of the homeless. 

Looking at past wins 
helps, too. After all, he already 
had a 4.0 average, and had done 
well on difficult exams before. 
Reminding himself of his past 
success on similar exams helped 
him relax and restored his confi- 

Gaining control of your 
thinking will help to turn despera- 
tion reaclions into peak perform- 
ance actions. Learning Ihis early 
in life will be invaluable in the 
future, because no matter what 
you do or where you do it, there's 
always going to be things you 
gotta do. 

For the Health of It 

I thank those of you 
who submitted questions for 
this week's printing. How- 
ever, I will only be answer- 
ing those which are directly 
related to health and medi- 
cine. So for those of you 
with a serious interest in 
your health I invite you once

front desk in the smdent 

Q: Can you explain a little 
more about the measles and 
the possibilities of TN be- 
coming involved in the epi- 

A: As the announcement 
in the Chatter said, various 
counties in TN have al- 
ready experienced out- 
breaks. Bradley county, 
our neighbor, is presently 
being affected by the ten 
day measles. . And as of 
August 6 there have been 

By Darlene Almeda 

8,941 cases of measles re- 
ported in the U.S. Seventy 
colleges and universities 
have also been affected with 
this highly contagious dis- 

The main symptoms 
of measles are as follow: 
cold symptoms for about 
three days with fevers up to 
104 degrees or even higher, 
white patches in the mouth, 
and finally a hairline rash 
that will eventually spread 
down to the feet. When this 
disease is contracted, you 
will be isolated until the rash 
disappears- This may be 1-2 
weeks. don't think 
this is solely a childhood 
disease because you may be 
in for a surprise. Those who 
get the disease at a later age 
tend to get a more severe 
type of measles. 

Besides the previously 
slated symptoms of the dis- 
ease there are varios compli- 

cations that may arise: 
pneumonia, swelling of the 
brain due to infection, even 

What can be done 
about this? Get vaccinated; 
if you haven't already that 
is. The Oootewah Public 
Health Department located 
at 5520 High St. (behind [he 
Baptist church) is providing 
the community with vac- 
cines any week day until 
3:30p.m. foramere $2.00. I 
must say those $2.00 will be 
the wisest investment you 
will ever make if you are not 
vaccinated yet. 

More information 
about measles is being com- 
piled right now and will be 
given to all the students here 
atS.C. So expect some very 
important papers in your 
boxes this week and take the 
time to read them. Your 
lives may depend on it.

PatriciaWhite, song- 
writer/singer, will be appearing 
in sacred concert on October 13 
at 8 p.m.. at the Southern College 
church of Seventh-day Advent- 
ists in CoUegedale. 

Patricia's talents are 
well displayed in both the lyric 
and music of her original songs. 
Her first album, WHITE 
ROBE, received airplay on 
Christian radio stations all 
across the United States. An 
enthusiastic response followed 
with comments like "A refresh- 
ing new sound!" and, "One 
great LP!" 

Her new album. LOVE 
WILL, was produced in Nash- 
ville, Tennessee, with such top 
studio musicians as Shane Keis- 
ler. Larrie Londin, Don Potter 

and Jon Coin. 

In concert Patricia shares 
herself and the stories behind her 
music. She is an effective com- 
municator, drawing her audience 
into the joy of praise as they learn 
to do such songs as the "Praise 
Rap." Her rich vocal sound has 
developed over years of experi- 
ence (beginning at 4 years of age) 
in performing with a number of 
groups including the Heritage 
Singers of California. 

Juggling a family, writ- 
ing, pefomiing, and recording 
are several full-time jobs: but she 
seems to take it all in stride and 
pulls from the difficult times the 
humorous incidents she shares 
with her audiences. "I think

"Lord, help me!" was 
ihe cry of him who had no 
desire and no will to become a 
student missionary, but he heard 

anyway. His name is Kyle 
Robinson, and the voice was the 
Holy Spirit. 

After Kyle decided to 
become a student missionary, in 
the Spring of 1988, he went to 
the student center to look at the 
call book and was moved by the 
Spirit to accept a call to Palau as 

Several months later, on 
August 11. 1988. Kyle was at 
the William Hatfield Airport in 
Atlanta with no plane ticket or 
passport. He had thought these 
items would be there waiting for 
him. They weren't. What could 
he do but go home? At his arri- 
val there, he found his ticket and 
passport on his front porch. 
Thai's when he realized that Ihe 
Lord wanted him to go to Palau. 

After arriving in Palau 
on August 18, 1988. Kyle was 
exhausted. However, the people 
of the island weren't tired, they 
were excited about his coming 
and wanted to lake him on a 
tour while they got acquainted. 
While on this lour, he saw many 
needs and people whom he 
could encourage and teach. 

Soon he settled in, leaching 
Bible, history, U.S. Govern- 
ment. P.E., and more. 

As a missionary, Kyle 
had to deal with many new 
situations. On one memorable 
occasion he spoke with a stu- 
denl whose parents had died a 
month before school started. 
Alcohol and drugs became the 
only family he knew. Kyle 
saw the need and asked for 
the Loid's help. Aflermuch 
prayer and effort, Ihe student 
overcame his addiction and 
accepted the Lord. 

When Kyle preached 
his last sermon and gave a 
call, thirty-four students 
between the ages of thireen 
and twenty-one accepted 
Christ. These results rein- 
forced Kyle's belief that die 
Lord wanted him to be in 
Palau to preach His word. 

Even though Kyle's 
year has ended, he will not 
give up the work; in fact, after 
he graduates, he plans to 
return to Palau for six years. 

Presently, Kyle Robin- 
son is a sophomore religion 
major at Soudiem College, as- 
sistant pastor of the GraysvilJe 
S.D.A. Church, and president 
of The Collegiate Missions 
Club. His goal is to send 200 
student missionaries from 
Southern College to different 
parts of the world.

Rate Your First Impression 

What kind of first impression do 
you make when you walk into a 
roomful of business associates? 
Are you perceived as authorita- 
tive and reliable? Or, are the 
impressions you leave behind 
sabotaging your chances of get- 
ting ahead? 

The "IMAGE INDEX" is de- 
signed to enable people to calcu- 

late their prospects for getting 
ahead in situations where first 
impressions are important. This 
includes getting a new job. earn- 
ing a promotion or completing a 
successful sales presentation. 

Recruitment experts tell us there 
are a number of elements that 
contribute to an executive's im- 
age, including clothes, grooming 

and various aspects of body lan- 
guage. If one of those elements 
doesn't fit in with the overall 
look, it can throw off the person's 
entire image. 

The IMAGE INDEX was devel- 
oped in conjunction with Donald 
and Karen Kaufrnan of Kaufman 
Professional Image Consultants 
of Philadelphia. It is based on the 
likelihood of making the best 
impression on the greatest num- 
berof people in most business and 

best efforts because their overall 
appearance projects the wrong 
kind of image," said Karen 
Kaufman. "The IMAGE INDEX 
can give people a sense of what 
they're doing right and wrong," 
added Donald Kaufman.

Machado Wins All Night Softball Tournament 



Night Softball Tourna- 
ment was held Saturday 
night October 7 after 
being delayed due to rain 
(he previous weekend. 
The format of the tourna- 
ment was double elimi- 
nation as il has been in 
previous years. How- 
ever, some of the rules 
were changed this year to 
speed up play. 

Perhaps the 
biggest change was the 
reduction of the number 
of outs per inning from 
the traditional 3 to 2. 
This rule may have 
changed the outcome of 
some of the games. For instance. 
John Machado's team, the even- 
tual tournament champion, was 
upset and sent into the losers 
bracket by Angel Echemendia's 
team. "If it hadn't been for the 
two out rule, we probably 
wouldn't have beat them," said 

Another proposed 

change was not enforced. The 
rule in question would have de- 
nied home run hitlers the reward 
of circling the bases. 

The rain delay im- 
posed another unusual change in 
play. A section of field B's out- 
field fencing had to be removed 
because of flagball season. The 
fence was replaced with rope for 

Ground balls 
which rolled under the rope were 
ruled ground rule doubles. This 
may have handicapped teams that 
depended on speedy base running. 
These changes and the 
"Fates of Softball" conspired to 
produce a night full of surprises 
and upset victories. One big sur- 
prise was Jeff Wood's learn elimi-

Bits and Pieces 

by David Denton 

Six years is a long time 
on a college campus. A gradu- 
ate, returning to school for a 
visit six years later, isl likely 
going to fee! a bit out of place. 
School, life has gone on and 
forgotten him. His face has 
been replaced a hundred items 
over by new, young faces. The 
hallways he once walked are 
now recarpeted and covered by 
new, young feet. 

Four years, maybe five, 
usually marks the passing of a 
student from freshman to gradu- 
ate. Those who stay longer are 
considered to be "professional 
students" in no hurry to leave. 
Myself? I've been here 
going on six years now, only 
four of those as a student (The 
rest of the time I've spent 
catching up on the costs of 
being a student). I haven't 
regretted my time here at the 
college. I've always been able 
to keep myself busy, sometimes 
too busy, as my grades can 

In my six years at South- 
em, I've seen a lot of things 
change. New faces arriving, the 
Morrises, Malhises, and others; 
old faces departing, the 
Wagners, the Chrislmans, etc. 
I've seen the demise of build- 
ings that were here and now 
aren't; like Jones Hall, which 
became a parking lot. I've seen 
buildings restored like Lynn 
Wood; and brand new buildings 
being constructed, like Brock 
Hall. This isn't he same school 
I remember from 1 984. 

Destiny Drama Co., my 
one constant over the years, has 
changed as well. Since I joined 
the group six years ago. there 
have been four student directors, 
counting myself, five or six 
(depending on who you count) 
sponsors, nearly fifty different 
members, hundreds of perform- 
. and thousand of miles of 
travel. There have been un- 
countable rewards: new fiiends.

van trips, the wrong turns, the 
poor performances. I've seen 
members leave in the middle of 
the year because of personal 
differences, or poor grades, or 
because they simply had to

discouraging, I've learned to

Destiny's personality is found in 
people like Kevin Rice, who 
was director during my first two 
years and Rochelle Battistone, 
about whom I like everything. 
People like Allan Martin, the 
current director, who is also 
known as Mr. Vocabulary, and 
Gary Bradley, whom I wish had 
been my brother. People like 
Shannon Bom, a beautiful, 
concemed Christian, and Dawn 
Patton, to whom we said good- 
bye with heavy hearts the day 
she lost her battle with a termi-

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor: 

In the last issue of the 
Southern Accent. ! wrote an 
article entitled "Campus Rape 
Prompts Concern." The format 
was designed to stress the 
seriousness of the incident. I 
had hoped that it would be taken 
seriously by all, and that the tips 
would be followed.

Dear Students, 

As supper hour hostess I 
would like to express my per- 
sonal appreciation for your 
cooperation in maintaining a 
friendly, responsible, attitude in

I receive many positive 
comments due to your friendly 
conversations with visiting 
guests during supper, especially 
from folks not of our religious 
persuasion, and Elder Hostel

that an attempted rape had taken 
place Sunday night, October 8. 
The girl was walking alone at 
night by the playground at iHe 
elementary school. 

What needs to be said or 
done to stress the importance of 
using common sense? Don't go 
out at night if you don't have to. 
If you must be some place, 
PLEASE take : 

It would be unfortunate 
for someone attending college to 
have to leave early because of a 
trauma such as rape. 

No one has been charged 
with any crime. That means he 
could still be out there. Protect 
yourself — use your head. Don't 
fool yourself in to thinking it 
could never happen to you, 
because it very well might. 

-Tamara Michalenko 

Dear Editor. 

I am writing in regards 
to the recent lead article in the 
Southern Accent, t think it is 
good that the story entitled 
"Campus Rape Prompts Con- 
cern" was run since it was the 
focus on campus for quite some 
time, but I feel it was written in 
a totally tasteless manner. It 
was not necessary to publicize 
the details of this girl's experi- 
ence across the entire campus. 
Think of how she must have fell 
when she read the ariicle. No 
one in their right mind would 

want to find a story about 
themselves of this nature pub- 
lished in the school newspaper. 
And really, think about it. these 
details were not anyone's 

I feel the appropriate 
follow-up to this article is a 
written apology in the next issue 
of Southern Accent. Let's try to 
make her life easier, not more

The general consensus accord-

tournament went well. Ten- 
sions were high, upsets were 
abundant, play was of high qual- 
ity and everyone enjoyed the 
competition. Everyone, that is, 
except Keppler's team.

Just for the Health of It 

Q: Is there a s 

; for acne? 

A: The phrase "sure cure" is 
pretty powerful. First let's dis- 
cuss what acne is. Acne vulgaris 
occurs when thcducisof the seba- 
ceous (oil) glands gel plugged 
with bacteria, sebum (oil), and 
dead cells. When this material is 
oxidized it takes on a black color. 
This is not dirt. We call them 
blackheads or comedos. Pimples 
will then form when continuous 
pressure from the oil brakes 
through the walls of the ducts and 
escapes into the tissue to cause 
swelling and redness. Scarring 
takes place depending on the ex- 
tent of damage to the duct. 

As far as acne control is 
concerned you will be relieved to 
learn that no relation has been 
made between acne and diet. So if 
you do not mind the fat, sodium, 
sugar, calories and chemicals in 
junk foods go right ahead. But do 
remember that a balanced diet is 
the key to health maintenance. 
Nevertheless, allergies to choco- 
late look very similar if not iden- 
tical to acne. So if you break-out 
afier eating chocolate products 
take the possibiities of allergic 
reactions into consideration. 
Also hormone imbalances will 
affect oil production thus increas- 
ingtheriskforacne. Thismaybe 
triggered by stress, puberty, and

squeezing pimples. Yes, Iknow 
I am asking alot from you but 
this may cause permanent 
scarring and further infection. 
Another vital factor, ladies, is 
make-up. By trying to cover up 
pimples with make-up and 
concealer you may be aggravat- 
ing matters because of their oil 
base. If you absolutely cannot 
do without make-up give water 
based cosmetics a try. 

Useful medications 
include antibiotics. These must 
be prescribed to you by your 
physician not your roommate's 
cousin who just happens to have 
some left-over from his pubes- 
cent years. Retin-A is another 
frequently used prescription 
medicine which supresses the 
sebaceous glands and yields and 
anti-inflammatory effect. 
Widely known over-the-counter 
remedies such as those contain- 
ing benzoil peroxide will help 

2 the rate of n 


growth thus aiding the dead 
ones to slough off. All these 
methods of control should be 
supervised and approved of by 
your physician or dermatologist. 
And last but not least be 
aware of the fact that acne is not 
related to unclean liness, dietary 
discrepancies nor aberrant social 
behavior as much of the unedu- 
cated public wishes to believe. 
Now you know better. 


Frequent and vigorous 
scrubbing and washing of 
affected area should be avi 
especially during the cold and 
dry winter months. Once or 
twice a day with a mild soap 
will suffice. Also abstain from 

Q: Which is better for you: 
walking or jogging? 
A: Walking and jogging have 
both been labeled as great forms 
of cardiovascular exercise. Yet 
many authorities agree that 

between the two, walking is the 
better. The main reason for this 
conclusion is that walking does 
not jar the ankles, knees, or hips 
as jogging does. Our joints 
were not designed to receive the 
high impact caused by each 
bounding step in a job. Have 
you heard of low impact aero- 
bics? Well, walking holds the 
same principle thai doing the 
optimal amount of cardiovascu- 
lar and high endurance exercise 
with the lowest risk of injury or 
damage to the joints. 

Walking is indeed an 
aerobic exercise. I am not 
referring to the leisurely strolls 
one takes at the mall but rather 
to a brisk walk with arms 
swinging at the sides and torso 
aligned with the legs. To make 
the most of your walks and to 
get maximum cardiac results, 
aulhorites suggest that you walk 
for 30 minutes 3-5 times each 
week. The regularity, my 
friend, is the key. One can only 
reach his highest level of health 
through regular exercising. 
Because walking is 
aerobic it will bum not only fat 
on your legs but throughout the 
enitre body. When walking, the 
back and abdomen get an 
excellent workout by keeping 
aligned with the legs. Since 
mile for mile jogging bums only 
20% more calories than brisk 
walking, why take the risk of 
joint injury when a good brisk 
walk will do the job? Regard- 
less of which one you choose to 
do. walking or jogging, remem- 
ber not to do it after dark or by 
yourselves, ladies. 

S.C. Students 

Affected by 


by Andrea Nicholson 

For many of us. it was 
jusl another newscast and one 
more disaster report to add to 
the countless number we hear 
daily. But to several Southern 
College students, hurricane 
Hugo meant personal disaster 
and devastation. 

Aiinda Martin, whose 
home on the island of St. Croix 
was among those that were 
damaged by Hugo on September 
17, said she heard about the 
hurricane on the news. 

"TTie bad winds and rain 
started about 2 o'clock in the 
afternoon," she said. "By 6 
o'clock, all the phone lines 
were down, and I couldn't get 

Dean Rose tried to 
contact the island by phone to 
find out any information about 
the families of the ladies in 
Thatcher, but she couldn't get 
through, either. 

Aiinda said she worried 
constantly and looked al the 
news every day for some clue of 
how much damage the hurricane 
had done to the island where her 
family lives. 

It was two weeks after 
the hurricane struck that Aiinda 
finally talked to her fmaily. Her 
mother had tried to get through 
to her sooner, but there were 
long lines to the only phone in 
the area. 

"I can't really explain il. 
You have to see it to believe it," 
her mother said of the damage 
to the island. "People arc 
running out of food, and every 
house has something wrong 
with it." 

Alinda's house was 
located on a high elevation of 
the island, so her family didn't 
evacuate. She said her parents 
and brother watched as the roof 
was blown off three quarters of 
the house. They had to bail 
water out the windows as it rose 

"Compared to the other 
homes, our damage was minor," 
Aiinda said. Her father is a 
carpenter, so he will be able to 
repair their hourse. 

Alinda's mother, who 
worked for the bus company. 

will be out of work for some 
time. The hurricane destroyed 
all the schools, and it will be a 
long time before they can be 

Dahila Hodge called 
home eariy that Sunday morning 
when she heard the hurricane 
was going to hit near her home. 
Her family didn't think it would 
do much damage in the area 
where they live, so she and her 
sister, Juliet, didn't worry at 

But when news reports 
told ihem the damage to the 
island was extensive, the two 
sisters said they just cried and 
prayed that their families and 
homes would be spared. 

Il was two weeks before 
they heard from their mother. "I 
started screaming when she 
called," said Dahila. 

The Hodge's live in an 
apartment near the sea, so their 
family had to evacuate to a 
shelter during the storm. Dahila 
said her mother was injured 
when the shelter caved in, and 
her brother got food poisoning 
from the canned foods that were 

The winds shattered the 
glass windows in their apart- 
ment, and the furniture was 
blown all over the rooms. Juliet 
said their apartment will be 
repaired and her family can

their belongings in the hurri-

Daphney Ramsey also 
lives on St. Croix. She talked to 
her family a week after Hugo 
struck her home. The roof blew 
off her house while her mom, 
stepdad, and little brother and 
sister huddled in the closet for 
protection. "It sounded like a 
bomb when the roof went," her 
mother said. 

Daphney's stepdad fixed 
the roof, and she said an insur- 
ance agent will be coming soon 
to assess the damage. She will 
be going home for Christmas. 

There were more S.C. 
students whose homes were 
damaged in the hurricane. They 
said they were all a support for 
each other during the weeks 
following the storm, watching 
the news, crying, and praying. 
All are thankful that their 
families are alive, and they 
continue to pray that their island 
home will slowly be restored.

Luchak was commissioned to

Luchak and his wife, Rachel, at 
Yanbian Teacher's College.

The Luchak's stay in 
China was short-lived since they 
were sent home last June. The 
Democracy movement at Bei-

Destiny: Makes Christianity Fun 

by Jo-Anne E. Sievenson 



desolate. The rows of seats in 
the auditorium were empty 
except the first few where the 
actors sat. The lighls were 
turned up and the strings of the 
guitar played lightly to the 
singing voices of those present. 
A lively worship talk began and 
a rehearsal followed. It was 
7:00 p.m. on a Thursday night — 
time for the 90 minutes practice 
for members of the Destiny 
Drama Company. ' 

Southem College's 
drama group was started by two 
students and campus ministries 
in 1979, making this year its 
lOlh anniversary. Through 
Christian theatrical arts the 
group tries to convey the perti- 
nence, power, and personality of 
Jesus and His gospel. It has 
performed throughout the 
southeastern United States at 
academies, colleges, youth 
rallies, the streets of Gatlinburg, 
and Hamilton Place Mall in 
Chattanooga. "Destiny is 
probably one of the more recog- 
nized Christian theatrical groups 
in the denomination," says 
director Allan Martin. 

Martin and the audition 
committee, which is made up of 
faculty specifically from the 
speech and English departments 
and C.A.R.E. ministries, chose 
this year's 15 members. The 
group is limited to 15 members 
because it is a "very functional 
number," says Martin. This 
makes the audition committee's 
job very difficult because 
"There are a lot of talented 
people on this campus." Mem- 
bers are eventually chosen 

because of good citizenship 
records and good academic 
standings. The committee also 
observes each auditioning 
student's display of commit- 
ment and dedication. 

Each week for 90 min- 
utes the members meet in Lynn 
Wood Hall to take care of 
business matters and to rehearse 
for upcoming performances. 
Because Destiny is an outreach 
ministry, it schedules off cam- 
pus perfomiances twice a 
month. This explains why they 
rarely perform on campus. 

Tricia Green who joined 
Destiny for the first time this 
year says she wanted to be a 
part of Destiny because it 
"Makes Christianity look fun." 
Destiny offers each member 
something special. Rochelle 
Battistone who has been a 

member for three years says, 
"The one thing I like about 
Destiny are the friends I make." 
For David Denton, who has 
been in Destiny for six years, it 
has been the source of emo- 
tional growth, "The unity you 
have with fourteen different 
people who love the Lord just 
rubs off on you," says Denton. 
Destiny has also provided 
Denton with the opportunity to 
sharpen his creative writing 
skills. This year's home show 
will be written and directed by 
Denton and George Turner. 
Denton adds that when the 
group first began, all of the 
material was original but gradu- 
ally the group stopped writing 
original skits; however, this year 
"Hopefully we will have an 
original play for the home 

Destiny is financed soley 
through C.A.R.E. ministries. 
Public Relations and other 
exposure has helped it finan- 
cially. The group also receives 
a stipend for traveling accomo- 
dations and expenses. The 
group's tour advisor is Elder 
Jim Herman, and its administra- 
tive sponsor is Dr. Don Dick. 

During the mid-term 
break Destiny will perform at 
Andrews University, in the 
Pioneer Memorial Church and 
in the Crossroads Sabbath 
school. There, the seats will fill 
with an audience. The lights 
will dim. The stage will come

Greater Love Hath No 
Man Than This . . . 

by David Wingate 

"Greater love hath no 
man ihan this, that a man lay 
down his life for his friends." 

I met Jesus at a confused 
stage of my adolescence. I did 
not desire to be close to him for 
we had nothing in common. 
But He persisted and showed 
me letters He had written. 
Through these writings 1 found 
the love, counseling, and gener- 
osity of Jesus Christ— who has 
completely changed my world.

Community Service Center 
Aids Hurricane Victims 

The Seventh-day Ad- 
ventist Community Service 
Center works with other Chat- 
tanooga area agencies and 
denominations to help people in 
need. Although it's services are 
mainly devoted eastern Chat- 
tanooga, they were recently 
extended to residents of 
Bishopville, South Carolina. 

On September 22, 
Hurricane Hugo struck the 
South Carolina coastline with 
full fury. Charleston was 
devastated, and many surround- 
ing cities received considerable 
damage. A tornado emerged 
from the storm and flattened the 
town of Bishopville, population 
3.500. According to Lee 
County administrator Barry 
Hickman, 589 homes were 
severely damaged, and another 
102 were beyond repair. The 
tornado caught up many mobile 
homes, and scattered them 
about. 236 of them were de- 
stroyed, and 214 suffered major 
damage. All of the major 
businesses in town displayed 
moderate to severe damage. 
The cotton crop was spread far 
and wide giving the fields a 
snow covered appearance. 

When the news of this 
calamity reached Chattanooga, 
many people pulled together to 
prepare necessary relief for the 
victims. The Adventist Com- 
munity Service Center was 
chosen as the central point to 

by Kerri Healey 

bring the supplies. Channel 12 
News and WDEF picked up the 
story, and appealed to the public 
for food, paper products, and 
other needed materials. The 
response seemed slow at first, 
but as the days passed, the 
provisions began to pour in. 
Some volunteers stood at the 
doors to help bring in the dona- 
tions, while others organized 
and boxed the supplies. The 
names, addresses, and goods 
were recorded. Even with all 
the commotion, there still 
appeared to be an atmosphere of 
order, as each volunteer did his 
or her job tirelessly and cheer- 

At the beginning of the 
last week in September, the 
upstairs classroom at the Ad- 
ventist Community Service 
Center exhibited only one lonely 
pile of donations. However, as 
the days went by, the pile 
increased, so that by the middle 
of the next week, the once vast 
expanse of floor space was now 
covered with a tremendous 
mountain of boxes. 

In order to lessen the 
confusion when the workers 
arrived at their destination, each 
box of goods was prepared to 
supply adequate food for a 
specific number of days. 

Aftera week of fast- 
paced organization, vans from 
Southern College and the 
Adventist Community Center 

were scheduled lo take the 
boxes to South Carolina. Some- 
one had gone ahead earlier 
searching for the best location to 
take the supplies. Word came 
back that Charleston was over- 
whelmed with trailers full of 
food, and the search began for 
another city. After consulting 
with the South Carolina gover- 
nor, Bishopville was agreed 
upon as the recipient town. 

Seven representatives 
from the Adventist Community 
Service Center left with the vans 
at 4:30 on the morning of 
October 4, 1989. The head van 
carried a banner (graciously 
donated by a local printer) that 
read "Hugs for Hugo— Chat- 
tanooga Cares." From the 
beginning their efforts were 
greatly welcomed. Several 
workers distributed food, while 
others helped with repair work, 
and assisted in other areas. 
These volunteers worked over- 
time to provide all the help they 
could give. 

The main purpose of 
each volunteer was not "What 
will 1 get out of it?", but rather, 
"What can I do to help?" With- 
out these people, "Hugs for 
Hugo" would never have been 
possible. The unselfish giving 
of Chattanooga shows that when 
it comes to helping a neighbor, 
Chattanooga truly shines. 

destruction, I found deloured 
thorough His compassion. 
Unlike other friends. Jesus was 
not shy about expressing love. 
He shows me adoration 
through His patience and warm- 
heartedness. On occasions 1 
will push Him aside, and though 
this must hurt, He always seems 
to understand. 

Whenever 1 am in a 
bind, my Friend and 1 determine 
plausible solutions. His amaz- 
ing wisdom helps to keep my 
life on steady ground. 

Through His counsel, I 
have come to love and forgive 
my enemies. During my child- 
hood my stepfather and I did not 
get along. Many times lex- 
pressed hatred toward him. But 
a Presence comforted me and 
silenced my cries of anguish. I 
learned that this Presence was 
the warm embrace of my dearest 
Companion, Jesus Christ. He 
taught me to behold others with 
eyes of compassion. 

Along with this new 
outlook, my Friend has given 
me many more cherished gifts. 
He helped me to purchase a car. 
handed me money in times of 
need, provided me with re- 
sourceful books, and at present 
is helping lo finance my educa- 
tion. His extreme generosity 
has prompted me to pursue the 
same quality. 

My greatest gift from 
Jesus puzzles me. but I know He 
sacrificed a lot for it. I commit- 
ted a crime — one deserving of 
death. He, however, was inno- 
cent and worthy of eternal life. 
But my Best Friend took my 
place! He paid the price of 
death and suffering for me. 
Thus, I became guiltless and no 
longer required execution. He 
gave me life and told me this 
gift was for everyone. 

Many years have passed, 
but our friendship grows 
stronger. I continue to learn and 
depend upon Jesus and try to 
introduce Him lo others. If you 
are not yet acquainted with my 
Friend, I know He desires your 
company. Call on His name. 
He is eager to express His love 
and heal your heataches. 
Surely, greater love hath no 
man than this...!"

Claire Gonzalez, an 18 year- 
old Business major at Pacific 
Union College, chats with her 
friend Darren Dee as he drives 
onlo the lower level of the San 
Francisco Bay Bridge. 

The time is 5:03 p.m. 

They had attended PUC's SA 
Fall Picnic ihat day in Golden 
Gale Park, and had left early to 
go shopping in San Francisco. 
Jusi that morning. Claire had 
said she didn't feel a part of any 
big events in the world. 

Suddenly the car swerved out 
of control. Claire glanced up in 
time to see a wall fall in front of 
them. "It took me a few sec- 
onds to figure out that this wall, 
which I hadn't seen before, was 
the bridge!" she says. 

The time is 5:04 p.m. 

Darren pulled over and 
stopped, saying "It's an earth- 
Angelica Fisher, the passenger 
in the back seat, got out and ran 
ahead. She saw water spraying 
up from a broken water main. 
"I really thought the bridge was 
sinking." she says. "I thought 
'This is it, guys!' Let's get out 
of here now!'" she screamed. 
They grabbed everything out the 
car and sprinted back to Treas- 
ure Island, the island in the 
middle of San Francisco Bay. 
There another aftershock hit 
them. Angelica thought about 
the people that were important

A Letter to the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

Dissection has become a 
painful dilemma for many 
students and professors who 
object to killing or mutilating 
animals. The Animal Legal 
Defense Fund, a non-profit 
organization, has launched a 
national campaign to advise 
students and professors about 
alternatives to dissecting frogs, 
rabbits, cats, fetal pigs and other 
animals in the classroom. 

A Dissection Information 
Hotline, I-800-922-FROG 
(3764), provides callers with 
information on educational 
alternatives to dissection, 
guidelines for negotiating with 
college officials, and sugges- 
tions for overcoming obstacles 
students may face as they 
exercise their legal rights. 

A free Student Handbook 
outlines an eight-step plan to 
help students "say no" to dissec- 
tion and includes a list of alter- 
native teaching aids, 

I encourage you to investigate 

the issue of animal dissection on 
your own campus and to alert 
your readers to the availability 
of the hotline to help them find 
alternatives to dissection. 

Animal dissection has been 
controversial for many years, 
but the issue gained great 
prominence two years ago when 
teenager Jenifer Graham refused 
to dissect a frog in her high 
school biology class. Jenifer's 
experience, resulted in a state 
law giving students in grades 
kindergarten- 12 the right to 
refuse to dissect. 

Biology, physiology and 
anatomy should be life sciences, 
not death sciences. But dissec- 
tion teaches students that animal 
life is expendable and unimpor- 
tant. All students have the right 
to study animal life without 
desecrating it. 

Thank you for your considera-

Food Fair Draws Crowd 

by Jo-Anne E. Stevenson 

The aroma of festive food 
greeted the guests at the door as 
they came to participate in the 
sampling of foods from around 
the world. On Sunday, October 
29, the annual International 
Food Fair was held in the 
Spalding Elementary gym. 
Vendors composed of students 
and local church members 
situated themselves behind 
small booths and sold a variety 
of foods typical to the particular 
country their booth represented. 
At the Mexican booth, guests 
could purchase a plate of rice 
and black beans and a crispy 
burrito. Italy offered a helping 
of spaghetti and salad with a 
piece of garlic bread. The 
Orient offered a sizeable plate 
of fried rice, noodles and won- 
tons. For those who were more 
adventurous, India was selling 
curry and rice. But for those 
who couldn't break themselves 
away from good 'ole American 
food, the Western American 
booth had tasty com-on-the-cob 
dripping with butler and sea- 
soned with a pinch of salt. The 
Islands provided an oasis if pina 
colada or fruit punch drinks for 
the tender palate not yet used to 
the hot spices of other countries. 
If some guests were not yet 
filled to their brim the Dutch 
and the Danish had something 
real sweet. Large danishes and 
assorted cakes could be pur- 
chased from the Danish or a 

heaping scoop of soft serve ice- 
cream topped with popular 
toppings could be bought from 
the Dutch. For some, this was 
still not enough. After finishing 
his entree' and desert. Wayne 
Stevenson, a sophomore at 
Southern, got up and began 
round two. "It was a real inter- 
national experience," he said. 
Others were more conservative 
their first lime around and 
purchased food from two se- 
lected booths and came back 
later in the day and bought their 
supper from two other booths. 
Others sampled one of every- 
thing all in one meal. 

While guests sauntered slowly 
around to each booth soft pan 
flutes played in the background. 
The first piece of live entertain- 
ment was performed by Jackie 
James who accompanied him- 
self on the piano singing the 
[heme song, "All Are Precious." 
Edwin Disla received a lively 
applaud for the romantic Span- 
ish song entitled, "Promise 
Love." Shannon Bom who 
coordinated the entertainment 
said it was all performed by 
students from Southern. 

The annual international Food 
Fair is sponsored by the local 
SDA churches. Each sponsorer 
is requested to bear all the costs 
of representing a country and 
providing the food. The money 
received from each booth is then 
donated to a fund for Student 
Missionaries at Southern Col- 
lege. ArleenTolenlino who is

On Tuesday evening, 
October 24. Ackerman audito- 
rium welcomed highly ac- 
claimed, Russian pianist 
Alexander Toradze. 

His concert program in- 
cluded selections from Ravel. 
Mussorgsky, Babadjanian. 
and Scarlatti, all of which he 
played with high emotional 
intensity. The audience 
received his interpretations of 
these pieces enthusiastically, 
and invited Toradze back onto 
the stage for several encores. 

Toradze, a Soviet defector,

prestigious Van Clibum 
Competition. He has ap- 
peared with virtually every 
major North American or-

has not returned to the Soviet 
Union since August, 1983, 

when he v 
tour with the Bolshoi Sym- 
phony Orchestra of Moscow. 
At that time, the pianist made 
a spontaneous decision lo 
remain in the West and was 
granted asylum for two 
months at the American Em- 
bassy in Madrid. Since his 
arrival in New York in 
October, 1983, Mr. Tordadze 
has made his home near 
Manhattan's Lincoln Center. 

the coordinator of the fair said 
that the money is given to 
student missionaries who are 
raising funds for their air fares. 
"If there is any money lacking 
for their air fares, the fund 
makes up the difference, this 
money is for them," said 

Dennis Golightly who went to 
South Korea three years ago 
received $75 toward his air fare 
as a result of the funds from the 
International Food Fair. "The 
fair." says Cheryl Magnant, a 

returned student missionary, 
"really rakes in the dough." 

Behind the booths of strong 
smelling cuisine, students, 
church members, CMC, and the 
International Club, busily 
worked on keeping the platters 
of food replenished. Meanwhile 
guests, who themselves repre- 
sented different nationalities 
from the local area and the 
college, flittered back and forth,

New Marketing Program Seeking Majors 

By Suzanne Lettrick 

The business department 
wants people to inquire 
about the new full marketing 
program, which offers a 
BAA in marketing. 

Although the program has 
been going since the begin- 
ning of fall, not many people 
have heard about it because 
it was added after the course 
catalog was published. 

CliffOlson, the new busi- 
ness teacher, said that he 
hopes more students will 
look into this program. 

There are now 1 5 marketing 

One reason he thinks people 
should inquire is that it will help 
people in every career because 
"People always have to market 

"More CEO's come from a 

Marketing background 

than any other." 

themselves.. ..everyone should 
take a marketing course." He 
quoted Fortune magazine 
saying. "Out of the Fortune 500 

companies, more chief execu- • 
live officers come from a mar- 
keting background than any 
other area in business." 

Olson said the field of market- 
ing is "a hot area for students. 
The forecast is for the job 
outlook to increase." 

Among careers that can be 
reached by majoring in market- 
ing are advertising, marketing 
management, market research, 
and sales. 

"Marketing courses will give 
students experience in the 
field." Olson said. In the mar- 
keting management course the 

students will do a real mar- 
keting plan for a real busi- 
ness," and in the sales man- 
agement course, the students 
are video taped to see how 
they can improve their selling 

Within a year there will be 
a total of eight marketing 
courses offered. Olson, who 
has his masters in marketing, 
and Vinita Sauder. a new 
teacher, make up the market- 
ing faculty.

C.A.R.E. Week Appreciated by All 

Often, during the hectic days 
of sleeping, working, and 
studying, many students don't 
get the chance to let their 
friends and aquaintances know 
how much they are appreciated. 
C.A.R.E. Week gave everyone 
the opportunity to let others 
know just how special they are. 

Monday was Balloon Day, 
and one could see brightly 
colored balloons printed with 
"We Care" dancing above 
backpacks and book bags. 
Many of the orange colored 
balloons were decorated as 
floating jack-o-lantems with 
comical faces bringing smiles 
and stares from passersby. The 
balloons were also used as an 

innovative way of sending a 
message to a fellow student. 

Tuesday brought about an- 
other way of expressing appre- 
ciation: flowers. It was neat to 
see the bright carnations given 
around campus. In fact, 
student had bought a car 
to share with "anyone who looks 
like he needs to be cheered up a 

Wednesday was C.A.R.E. 
Day; and it gave everyone the 
opportunity to send a little note 
of cheer to someone. "I think 

something that encourages 
everyone to participate, since 
almost everyone has someone he 
appreciates," noted one fresh- 

Thursday gave students the 
excuse to share their thoughts 
with buttons. Students chose 
and designed the buttons, and 
John Lazor and Ed Santana 
snapped the buttons together. 

Friday was Warm Fuzzie Day, 
and it was great, according to 
one freshman, because "It gave 
me a chance to give people 
hugs." Another freshman was 
quick to add, "I thought it was a 
great idea since I'm a firm be- 
liever in hug therapy" 

"I think it's great to show 
friends that you care about them 
and not have a special reason for 
having to, like a birthday or 
illness," Sandi Floyd reflected 

as she fondly smiled at the latest 
picture her boyfriend had drawn 

"I thought the flowers and 
balloons were the best ideas 
because you could give them to 
people and cheer them up while 
you also let them know you 
value their friendship," said 
Kevin Wright when he was 
asked what his favorite day was. 

Overall, C.A.R.E. Week was 
enjoyed by both the givers and 
the receivers. Whether it be a 
flower, hug, balloon or a card, it 
seems that people enjoy being 
appreciated - no matter what 
week it happens to be. 

Illuminating This 
Present Darkness' 

By Andrew C. Nash 

For most, this past Halloween 
was a time for thrills, nick-or- 
trealing, and games; however, 
for devil worshipers, it was a 
ninth Halloween, prompting 
thousands of sacrifices to Satan 
across the nation. You can bet 
it was a festive night for demons 
everywhere, including those in 
the Chattanooga area... 

Much of this information was 
given by former Satan-wor- 
shiper, Eileen (last name with- 
held) during a seminar in 
Orlando, Florida, several weeks 
ago. According to Eileen, who 
made her first sacrifice at age 
five, every ninth Halloween all 
of the devil's followers are 
expected to "celebrate" the 
occasion by making a human 
sacrifice. Eileen used to play a 
major role in these horrifying 
ceremonies. Then she met 

At the seminar, an audience of 
Orlando residents, including 
several Adventist school teach- 
ers, was astonished to hear that 
Eileen had been given, from 
Satan, the power to see demons 
and angels. When asked if she 
could see demons and angels in 
the meeting room, Eileen 
hesitated and then responded, 

The demons are about eight 
feel tall, according lo Eileen, 
while the angels are slightly 
larger and holding massive 
swords of light. 

Eileen cited the novel. This 
Present Darkness , by Frank E. 
Peretti, as a close resemblance 
to how it really is in the unseen 
world. In the book, a small 
town is inhabited and fought 
over by demons and angels of 
God. The primary power source 
for the angels is the ascending 
prayers of the people. Only with 
this "prayer power" are the 
angels justified in ridding the 
town of the demons. 

As Christians, we sometimes 
get discouraged when our prayer 
requests seem to go unanswered. 
But knowing that our prayers are 
directly aiding our guardian 
angel's war against demons 
should make us even more 
excited about talking with the 

"For we are not contending 
against flesh and blood, but 
against the principalities, against 
the powers, against the worid 
rulers of this present darkness, 
against the spiritual host of 
wickedness in the heavenly 

Potter Preaches Here 

Jon Mourglia (pronounced 
"Mor-Ya") of "The Potter's 
House" will be teaching at 
Southern College, Friday, 
November 10 at 8:00 p.m. in 
the church. Mourglia has 
been a potter since 1965 and 
became a Christian in 1970. 
His teaching of "The Potter's 
House" precedes "The Great 
Passion Play" in Eureka 
Arkanasas and 
is a regular 
presentation of 
the Elna M. 
Smith Founda- 
tion which 
operates "The 
Great Passion 
Play". Mour- 

lecturer with 
The Thomas F. 
Staley Distin- 
guished Chris- 
tian Scholar 
Lecture Program. 

"The Potter's House" is a 
unique ministry through the 
medium of pottery, which 
combines Mourglia's natural 
talent as a potter with a 
spiritual gift of teaching the 
Word of God. His teaching 
involves bringing a potter's 
wheel, along with a variety of 
finished vessels, and using 
them to illustrate the different 

points he teaches. 

As he makes a form on the 
potter's wheel, Mourglia par- 
allels the physical with the 
spiritual, using pottery as the 
example, much the same way 
that Christ used parables. 
When Christ spoke to farmers 
He used elements they under- 
stood such as crops, seeds, 
soils and the seasons. When 
He taught fish- 
ermen. He 
related to the 
things of the 
sea to explain 

he teaches, 
relates the 
Master potter 
with Fadier 
God, the 
potter's clay 
with human 
flesh, centering of the clay on 
the potter's wheel with truth, 
water with the Spirit, the 
forming of the vessel with the 
growth of the individual 
Christian, the fire of the kiln 
with spiritual trials, sealing 
glaze with baptism, a finished 
cup compared to communion, 
and ashes with humility.

Look to the Cross, then Look Again! 

by Bill Kittle 

Every time I open my 
Bible, I find it more and 
more beautiful. That 
may seem like a normal 
thing for a ministerial 
candidate to say, but for 
me it seems strange to be 
headed in that direction. 
For many years I fought 
against the One who had 
the power to transform 
my worthless existence 
into something valuable. 

Many good people have 
put forth great efforts in 
my life so that I might 
obtain peace for my war- 
weary soul. Yet, not one 
person can match the 
greatest gift of all, Jesus. 
In Him I find rest. I can 
feel His love in the 
warmth of a hug or in the 
rays of the sun on my 
face. I can see His love 
in the kind deeds of 
people who care. I can 
hear His love in the kind 
words spoken by a 
friend. In all my life no 
one has so surrounded 
me in love as Jesus has. 
Jesus, what a beautiful 
name! I could say it a 
million times at His feet 
and never grow weary of 
His name or of His com- 

I look back on my life and 
ask myself, "How did God 
ever make a somebody out 
of me?" I guess it was 
always the feeling that He 
was near, always at my side 
to support me and to lift me 
up when I was down. Inevi- 
tably I would look again at 
His broken body, and He 
would transform my life 
once again. 

In Isaiah 45:22 God speaks 
to each need of our hearts. 
He says, "Look to Me and be 
saved, all you ends of the 
Earth! For I am God, and 
there is no other" (NKJV). 

It is as if God says to me, 
"In Me only can you find 
peace for your life. In Me 
alone will your life be filled 
with joy! Look to Me and be 
saved." He also invites us. 

"Come unto Me, all you 
who labor and are heavy 
laden, and I will give you 
rest" Matt. 11:28. 

Rest for your souls, rest 
and peace in your life. We 
should look again to the 
cross of Jesus, to be saved. 
Look again! Look again! 
And look again! 


student Profile: Adrianne Zukovski 

By Izear Feagins 

"Will I know everybody at 
Southern? Will I make friends?" 
These were the questions of 
Adrianne Zukovski when she 
came to Southern in the fall of 

Adrianne who was bom in Sao 
Pauio. Brazil did not want to 
come to America because of 
racial segregation among blacks, 
whites, and hispanics; however, 
because her parents are mission- 
aries who received a call to 
Miami. Florida, she had to go. 

When Adrianne moved to 
America, she had to choose a 
college. She chose Southern. 
She said that although she spoke 
poor English, the students of all 
races were patient and kind to 
her. They came to sit and talk 
with herjusl like a friend. Be- 
cause of this southern hospitality, 
she no longer doubted the friend- 
liness of the people. 

Adrianne is a sophomore Allied 
Health (nutrition) major. She 
wants to give lectures on how to 
eat and cook nutritiously. She 

Making people laugh is Adri- 
anne's hobby. She said, "I like 
to make people laugh, they 
look beautiful when they pour 

also wants to give health tips on 
changing people's diets. 

Adrianne has lived in Brazil and 
Mexico. As a result of living in 
these countries, she speaks Eng- 
lish, Spanish, and her native 
language, Portuguese. 

With Adrianne 's speech and 
humor talents, she has had no 
problems making friends at 

student Missionaries

Dear friends, 

It's lime to snatch a few min- 
utes for communication with 
you folks again! A big thank 
you to those of you that have 
written, especially Southern, 
who has been sending letters 
and the student paper — "The 
Accent"! I enjoy seeing the 
familiar faces! 

The 1st quarter is almost over, 
only two more weeks to go. At 
the mid-term, September 21, we 
got a sneak preview of what the 
Rock Islands are like. On 
Thursday the 21st, the Student 
Association took the whole 
school on a Rock Island picnic. 
We swam, ate, snorkeled, and 
relaxed on a little island proba- 
bly only about 300 feet i 
say across because 
the island is made 
of rock that goes 
straight up from 
the water about 
forty or fifty feet, 
except for one sandy beach 
jutting out on one side. But 
the fun was only beginning. 
That weekend we camped at 
another island. It was great- 
sandy beach, cc 
around, warm water, and lots 
of beautiful fish and shells. 
We explored a rusty Japanese 
Zero at low tide (i' was 
sticking out of water two 
feet), and found many animals 
and plants that I've only read 
about before. For instance, sea 
stars, giant calms, angel fish, 
trumpet fish, sea urchins, star- 
fish, moray eels, puffer fish, 
many kinds of hard and soft 
corals, coconut crabs, and even 
a small black-tipped shark. I'm 
looking forward to going again 
at the end of the quarter! 

Back at P.M.A.— reality— life 
is busier than ever. I'm really 
enjoying leaching now. I'm 
getting along well with the stu- 
dents, which is one of the most 
important ingredients for suc- 
cess here. All the teachers are 
being tougher than last year, and 
some of the rules are new, so 
complaints about too much 
homework, etc. are frequent. 
My class load has changed a bit 
because now that John Norman 
has arrived, he teaches Reme- 
dial English, and I teach a 
sectionof senior English. I 
have many other responsibili- 
ties. Oneof them is having 
Friday night vespers every five 

weeks or so. Then on Sabbaths, 
I always have some responsibil- 
ity to fill, whether it's playing 
the piano for Sabbath School, 
for church, teaching the les.son 
(every week!), calling for the 
offering, being the chorister for 
church, having the scripture and 
prayer, special music, or having 
the sermon, which I will on the 
21stof this month! On Sabbath 
afternoons, we, the SM's. take 
the student for walks and will be 
involved in branch Sabbath 
Schools very soon. Sunday, we 
work three hours in the morning 
and take turns with "being 
around" — student supervi- 
sion in the afternoon, 

Dear Southern Friends: 

Yokwe! It has been good 
to hear about some of the 
things happening at S.C, but 
I'm so glad God wanted me 
here in Ebeye this year. He's 
teaching me so much, and it's 
only October! 

I had heard before coming 
here that there was no physi- 
cal beauty on Ebeye, but I 
have been blessed to see 
more than three palm tress, 
some beautiful flower bushes, 
a big cluster of lavender 
flowers, and green, leafy 
nes by our water 
spigot (we don't 
have to boil our 
water!). This 

have a chance to 
go to Koror and 
buy food, visit the SM's 
in town, etc. We get the use of 
the school truck, a small white 
Nissan pickup, free-once a 
week. With all of our schedules 
being so busy, you might expect 
us to have a hard time getting 
along with each other under all 
the stress. If it wasn't for the 
Lord, I'm sure that would be the 
case. Many times, at least for 
me, the task looks so big that I 
know 1 have to have the Lord's 
help. There aren't any other 

If you are a young person, 
seriously consider the option of 
going somewhere as a student 
missionary. I recommend it! 

Thanks again to those of you 
who wrote and for the prayers 
that I know some of you must 
be sending up for me. 

David said, "Where does my 
help come from? My help 
Cometh from the Lord!" Psalm 

Keep looking up! 


Kaselehlia (hello) from 
Pohnpei! Two months have 
passed since I arrived on this 
60 mile island. I've adjusted 
well to the culture, and what 
an adjustment it was! After 
getting used to the fact that I 
am 1 1,000 miles from home, 
I've had to adjust to other 
aspects that have to be looked 
at humorously. Here, the 
roosters wake me up, church 
services are attended bare- 
foot, and the weekly grocery 
trip takes 3 hours at 5 differ- 
ent tiny stores, which make a 
7- 1 1 look like a food ware- 
Looking beyond these little 
"adjustments", I can see the 
breathtaking nature this 
island possess. While swim- 
ming in a clear lagoon at the 
bottom of a cascading water- 
fall, I'm awed by the beauty. 
To think that this is just earth, 
makes the beauty of heaven 

than I had expected. The sky 
always changes its awesome 
cloud formations, often adding 
brilliant rainbows. Ebeye is far 
from paradise, but sharp eyes 
will see the beauty and be 

The people are wonderful. 
I'm getting to know my kids 
more and more, and love each 
one of them. I teach 34 fourth 
graders and a freshman English 
class. My Ihtle ones can be 
challenging, but God works 
little miracles ofien, and gives 
me wisdom and love to teach 
them. I was often overwhelmed 
at first, but now ! have given my 
class to God and it's no longer 
my burden. I r 
tienlly for Him to work in my 
students. He is making changes 
in my class and me. 

This experience doesn't just 
happen here on Ebeye. It hap- 
pens any time one will 
sincerely ask God to change 
him and use him to touch 
others. Reaching out to 
others is the way to be the 
happiest wherever one is 

Have a great 
year! KEEP IN 

Yokwe Yuk, 

As far as teaching goes, well, 
lets just say that teachers de- 
serve a raise! I already realize 
that it takes a special person to 
dedicate his or her life to teach- 
ing. ! spend 7 hours a day with 
24 ten year olds. After explain- 
ing an assignment to the class 
three times. I'm ofien faced with 
explaining it again individually. 
By the 24th time I often want to 
scream. Sometimes I do. Most 
of the time I pray, and every 
time the Lord listens. I have to 
constantly remind myself that 
I'm here to teach them about 
Jesus and to show them His 
love. When I think that these 
kids are children of the King, 
teaching turns into my privilege! 

Well, I must end. It's late, 
and I have lesson plans to 
review. Take care. Andre- 
member, in between all the 
classes and deadlines, Jesus is 
with you! 

Much love, 
Lorraine Antolin

AIA President Visits Southern 

By Craig Lastine 

Ivan Bartolome was the 
Student Association President at 
Southwestern Advenlist College 
during the school year 1988-89 
and is the current Adventist 
Intercollegiate Association 
President. He visited Southern 
College the weekend of Septem- 
ber 23-24. This year Ivan is a 
part-time student at S.A.C.. and 
a full-time employee of the 
marketing department at 
Huguley Hospital, in Fort 
Worth, Texas. 

CL; What brings you to South- 
IB: I'm visiting as many Sev- 
enth-Day Adventists Colleges as 
possible in North America. I 
visited Oakwood before I came 
to Southern, and three weekends 
ago I was at Union College. 
Basically I'm just trying to get a 
taste of each of the different 
student associations and a 
feeling of what the individual 

campuses are going through. 
This way I can help transmit 
information between the col- 

for Advent- 
ist Intercol- 
legiate As- 
and it's ba- 
sically a 
group for all the different SDA 
Student Organizations in North 
America. The A.I.A, serves to 
facilitate information between 

the different colleges. In other 
words, if the Student Associa- 
tion at Walla Walla college is 
doing a project and it is very 

he should 
be able to 
share that 
with all of 
our S.D.A. 

The A.I.A. 
is a useful 
for distrib- 
uting that 

CL: Who 
makes up 
the A.I.A.? 

IB: Student Associations from 
La Sierra College, Atlantic 
Union College, Canadian Union 


College, and Southwestern Ad- 
ventist College make up the 
A.I.A. And I add that the A.I.A, 
is also trying to become an 
international organization. We 
are sending letters out to all the 
Adventist Colleges 
Bogenhaffen, Cologne, Sagunto, 
and Newbold inviting them to 
join and attend the annual con- 
vention held in the spring at 
S.A.C. In addition to that, we 
will be inviting delegates from 
Weimar and Hartiand.

Lynn Wood Hall Open for Business 

By A. Lee Bennett Jr. 

Lynn Wood Hall, on the 
campus of Southern College 
of Seventh-day Adventists, 
is once again housing 
classes and meetings for the 
first time in 4 years. 

The old, wood-frame 
building, which is located 
west of Southern College's 
Wright Hail, was officially 
opened during the college's 
Alumni Homecoming on 
October 27-29; however, the 
extra rooms which are 
nearly completed on the 
main level have already 
been put to use. The chapel 
^ been used for classes, 
seminars, workshops, and 
the Humanities Rim Series. 
The north classrooms which 
have been carpeted and 
partially furnished are being 
used this semester. The 
south room is nearly com- 
pleted and will house South- 
em's Alumni Heritage 
Museum, previously located 

on the second floor of Mabel 
Wood Hall, Southern's music 

Public relations vice-presi- 
dent. Dean Kinsey, said that 
refurbishing Lynn Wood Hall 
has "proved to be a blessing." 
The college no longer has to 
schedule academic classrooms 
and Wright Hall conference 
rooms for special, non-student 
related meetings. Lynn Wood 
Hall contains rooms of varying 
size to house seminars. It has a 
27 1 seat chapel for larger 

The building is also used to 
house classes for extension 
programs. "Southern College 
has at least two masters degree 
programs that are extensions of 
Loma Linda (University) pro- 
grams." said Kinsey. "They 
meet at Lynn Wood Hall...when 
they are here." 

Lynn Wood Hall was origi- 
nally opened in 1924 as South- 
em's administration and class- 
room building. In 1967, the 
administrative offices were 

moved into the newly built 
Wright Hall, the current ad- 
ministration building, which 
made room for even more 
classrooms in the building, 
and the WSMC radio studios. 
Upon the complerion of 
Brock Hall in 1985, the 
classes and the radio station 
moved out, and Lynn Wood 
Hall was closed until it 
became the subject of refur- 
bishing in 1987. 

Southern's alumni associa- 
tion and Committee of 100 
have spent $400,000 dollars 
on the main floor, which is 
nearly complete. Both the 
lower, and upper levels have 
yet to be completed; how- 
ever, work on the lower level 
is under way. and already 
houses the Strawberry Festi- 
val studios. Southern's yearly 
multi-media slide show, and 
the college's security head- 
quarters, previously located 
in the science and physics 
building, Daniels Hall. 

IB: I've visited your campus 
once before, but it was only for 
an evening. This is the first 
time I have gotten to take a look 
inside your campus and your 
student association. I have to be 
right up firont with you and tell 
you I'm incredibly impressed. 
It's obvious that your college 
has had a long term plan of 
development, and it's obvious 
that your administration has 
stuck with that plan. It has paid 

CL: This weekend you attended 
an S.A. event, the Progressive 
Party. Could you comment on 
the activity and the interaction 
between students and faculty? 

IB: The kids here are very 
vibrant. The kids that attended 
were willing to speak out and 
participate. They were, for the 
most part, not inhibited at all. 
Seeing faculty and students 
actually sit together and have 
fun is something really wonder- 
ful. Southern College is a 
relatively small school in com- 
parison to our state universities, 
yet that is an advantage. It give 
you a "You're at home feeling." 
Your administration has been so 
cooperative toward the Student 
Association and has been 
willing to work with your 
students. It is a WIN- WIN 

'erywhere you look!

Q: What is the difference 
between a sprain and a 

A: A sprain is an injury to 
the Ugaments around a joint 
due to a twisting motion. 
Actual tearing of the liga- 
ment may, but nor necessar- 
ily, occur. This tearing will 
cause damage to the blood 
vessels and allow them to 
rupture. During the first 2- 
3 hours rapid sweUing and 
increased pain take place 
due to the bleeding and 
seeping of fluids from the 
damaged vessels into the 

A strain is a "muscle- 
pull" caused by excessive 
stress and over-stretching. 
These are usually micro- 
scopic and partial tears in 
the actual muscles tissue. 
Following a strain one will 
feel sudden pain accompa- 
nied by localized tender- 
ness. Swelling as well a.s 
bruising also take place due 
to ruptured and damaged 

Q: Is there any possibility 
of getting AIDS from 
coming in contact with 
body fluids on a toilet seat? 
A: Well, it all depends on 
what it is you do with the 
toilet seat. As of now there 
is no direct evidence that 
AIDS is transmitted 
through casual contact with 
restroom facilities. Al- 
though the virus has been 
isolated in a wide variety of 
body fluids, transmission 
has only taken place 
through semen, vaginal 
fluid, blood and breast 
milk. To become infected 
with the AIDS virus re- 
member that the virus must 
somehow enter your biood 

into consideration the fact 
that the AIDS virus is a 
very fragile one once it 
comes in contact with the 
air. So the answer is no..

Don't Worry, Be Happy 

By Robert J. Kriegel, Ph.D. 

Editors note: Robert J. Kriegel, 
Ph.D.— best selling 
author farmer Ail-American 
athlete, and mental coach for 
Olympic and world class ath- 
letes — lectures and consults 
with major corporations world- 
wide on peak performance, 
leadership and sirageties for 
dealing with change. Kriegel 
recently look parti n a national 
lour of college campuses spon- 
sored by the makers of Nuprin 
Pain Reliever. 

Worrying is the negative na- 
tional pastime. Everybody does 
it and very few find it is a pos- 
tive experience. You don't 
think clearly or perform well 
when you worry. The fear of 
"What might happen if...," 
which overwhelms you, makes 
you fee! depessed .reduces your 
energy, and prevents you from 
getting your work done. 

Most of what we worry about 
is out of our control. You can't 
control other people's re- 
sponses, the grade a prof will 
give us.whether 

agree with us, what they think 
of us, the weather, traffic, 
roommates, money, how we 
look, grades, the future. The 
more we worry about things we 
can't control, the worse every- 
thing gets. 

Remember this rule of thumb: 
You can't control other people 
or external situations. But you 
can control how well you pre- 
pare for and respond to them. In 
other words, you can control 
your information, attitude and 

Worrying is made up of two 
words: what if. "What if... 
they say no,. ..I don't get the 
money, ...the professor 
assigns, ...the traffic. .The key to 
beating the worries is to change 
the what ifs to "if...thens," "If 
they say no.. .then I will..." "If I 
don't get the money ...then I 
will..." Always change the 
worry to anticipation. Concen- 
trating your energy on what you 
can change, rather than dwelling 
on things you can't control 
increases your confidence and 
prepares you for any situation. 

This strategy was used by 

President John F. Kennedy. 
Before his press conferences 
Kennedy and his aides antici- 
pated any possible question or 
situation that might arise and 
developed answers for them. 
Whether a reporter asked about 
the Viet Nam War, the economy 
or civil rights, Kennedy was 

Likewise, in a job interview, 
instead of worrying whether or 
not the potential employer will 
ask about your grades, antici- 
pate that he or she will. Then 
mentally list wins, accomplish- 
ments and qualifications that 
your course grades might not 

Get into the habit of anticipat- 
ing prior to any pressure situ- 
ation, whether it's an exam, an 
interview, a date or a tennis 
serve. Make a "worry list" then 
change each worry (what iO to 
an anticipation (if ..then). 
Leaving your worries behind by 
focusing on what you can 
control enables you to concen- 
trate your energy and perform at 
peak levels.

Last Rites for the Old Tabernacle

Me, I'm not going to jump into

over spilt milk— or burnt buildings. 
Question now is, what are we going 
to do with what's left of the struc- 

Several suggestions come to 
mind. They could sell pieces of the 
building to college alumni who long 
for the good old days. Any alumnus 
who actually remembers participat-

Another pmssibility would be to let 
Dean Qualley use the building for his 
office, in the event that his present 
office should prove to be inadequate. 

If none of these ideas strikes your 
fancy, why not give the building to 
theS.A.? Instead of having to go 
off-campus for the bam party every 
year, we would just trek up to the 
Tabernacle, re-light die burnt end of 
the building, and use the other side 
for the bam. How efficient, a bam

Another idea which seems

the obvious benefit to the fire

Burning Old Glory: 
Crime or Free Speech? 

In 1984 a protester burned a U.S. 
(lag during the Republican National 
Convention in Dallas. That deed w,

spectful, tactless, inreverent. and

malcontent of a crime. But ihe United 
States Supreme Court, acting unchar- 
acteristically libertarian, threw out the 
conviction on grounds that a law 
prohibiting flag burning violates the 
freedom of nonverbal speech. The 
Court probably acted wisely: rights 
thai encompass freedom should be 
emphasized over objects thai symbol- 
ize freedom. 

But President Bush seized the 
moment. With Congressional concur- 
rence and popular support he pledged 
to seek a constitutional amendment 
rendering flag burning criminal once 
again. This extreme remedy seems 

Opposing such an amendment may 
appear unpatriotic, and organizaUons 
choosing to do so (such as People For 
the American Way) will take the heat. 
but the case is solid for accepting and 
not reversing the Supreme Coun's 
declaration. If. as already suggested, 
die Court found correctly, then the 
proposed amendment puts "an asterisk 
on the First Amendment,'' possibly 
starting the treacherous process of

Would this upset the delicate 

balance between the free exercise and

But beyond the merits of a panicu-

amending act itself. Of this the 
framers were skeptical. Use it 
fhigally. they admonished — mainly to

Whatever the case, a number of flag 
desecration bills are before Congress. 
and the President wants something 
stronger than a statute, namely an 
amendment to the Constitution. 

The House has voted 380-38 to 
make flag-burning a federal crime. 
But the numbers are complicated by 
ihe fact that tactics rather than

Computer Science Department Unveils NeXT 

By Izear Feagins 

This past summer the Computer 
Science Department purchased a 
UNIX computer. NcXT. for 
academic purposes. 

The NeXT computer is new and 
was purchased by fund-raising. 
Last spring, Americom. a computer 
company in Atlanta, donated a 
similar five year old UNIX com- 
puter called Dual to the Computer 
Science Department. 

Linden deCarmo, a senior 
computer science major, said that 
the NeXT computer can store over 
250,000.000 bytes of information, 
the complete works of Shakespeare, 
and the Webster's Dictionary and 

Thesaurus. It can also do any math 
problem a student punches into it. It 
can send characters on the computer 
screen and recorded voice messages. 
This computer can also play games 
like chess and billiards with an 
opponent. It is also able lo do things 
like playing music while a student 
does his homework on it. Lastly, the 
NeXT computer has the best possible 
laser printing. What appears on the 
computer screen appears on the print- 
out sheer. Linden said, "What you see 
is what you get.'s an art." 

Monte Mitzelfeli. sophomore 
computer science major, said that it is 
essential for a computer science major 
or software engineering major to 
know how to use a UNIX computer. 

pnmarily the NeXT. 

The NeXT computer which has 
eight megabytes of memory and a 
330 meg hard drive is used by the 
Physics and Math Departments, am 
is very regular. Linden said that w< 
need more UNIX computers on 
campus because of the great 
demand. He also encourages non- 
computer majors lo use the com- 
puter. He said that this computer is 
becoming standard around the 

Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple 
Computer when the Macintosh 
Computer came out, is also the 
founder of NeXT computer.

years. It will be a challenge, said 

to the students' request. Experimental 
Psychology is not one of Stevens' 
strengths, but he loves research and 
believes that teaching this class will be 
a learning experience for him and his 
students as he brings "humor and fun 
into the subject and presents it as a 
valuable field and tool for people to 
look at and enjoy," said Stevens. 
Stevens obtained his degree at 
Andrews University in education and 
counseling psychology. He is a 
certified professional counselor and 
marriage and family counselor in the 
Chattanooga area. He is also a clinical 
member of the American Association 
of Marriage and Family therapists and 
a Diplomat of the American Board of 
Sexology. His field, he says, is proba- 
bly the "most lonely field to be in," but 
his favorite thing about it "is to watch 
lives change, to see people live 
successful lives and reach their 

Stevens also works closely with the 
state on a pilot program for study skills 
of high risk children. The program is 
designed to help educationally 
disabled children. "I describe educa- 
tionally handicapped as anything that 
keeps that child from learning," said 
Stevens. The program has been 
nominated as the program of the year. 

"He's a very ulenied man." says 
Junior psychology major, Kristie 
Brown. He has hands-on experience, 
and he can bring the class alive by the 
examples from his own experience." 
Stevens enjoys his chance to come to 
the college and teach because "it's 
almost a vacation from my regular 
routine." He also finds it a privilege to 
teach among "very talented teachers 
and students." 

"My favorite thing about teaching," 
said Stevens, "is letting the student 
realize that the world of psychology 
can be a field in which a Christian can 
provide a much needed service to the 
general public in the correlation 
between faith and learning." Many 
Christians have looked down upon the 
field of psychology, said Stevens, but 
"psychology is the study of sinful man. 
and if you arc able to bridge that gap 
of understanding, then you are able to 
give someone hope."

you may have guessed, my G.P,A, 
was a little below the 4.0 expected by 
my parcnLs and the Academic Dean, 
Dr. RoydCreenlcaf. Parents and 
Academic Deans have no sense of 

it all SI 



school when my air-conditioner was 
broken. The heat in my room thai 
week was almost unbearable. You 
could not lie still for more than 20 
minutes without patches of fungus 
growing on your skin. 

During that week I developed 
several strategies for beating the heai 
which I will reveal to you so you can 
use them when your a 

I - Make use of your refrigerator. 

Sleeping is very difricult when the 
room temperature is over 107 degrees. 
I dealt with Ihis by turning my 
refrigerator up lo"Hr' and sleeping 
with my head inside the freezer 
companmenl. This worked very well 

until the cockroaches, which are 
abundant in every men's dormitory 
room, also discovered the freezer. 
2 ■ If you do not have access to a 
refrigerator, I suggest you perspire. 

Perspiration is Mother Nature's own 
natural cooling system. When your 
Central Nervous System realizes that 
your air-conditioner is broken, it sends 
a message to your sweat glands 
(perspirus odiferus), which are located 
in you armpits. The sweat glands 
immediately start pumping perspira- 
tion and making your shirt smell Uke a 
dead hamster. To counteract this, you 
should put on anti-perspirant. But this 
forces Mother Nature to re-route 
perspiration to the mouth where it 
forms bad breath. 

My final strategy for beating the 
heal islo stay out of your room alto- 

gedier. This is what I finally had to 
do until the repairman came and 
installed a new air-conditioner, which 
brings me back to my G.P.A. Since 
my air-conditioner was broken, I was 
forced lo stay qui of my room, which 
is where my books were located. 
Obviously I could not study. 

I tried to explain Ihis to my parents, 
but they suggested the obviously 
impractical solution of taking my 
books out of my room to study. 
Parents can be so illogical sometimes. 

So. if any of my teachers (Drs. 
Williams. Kinsey, Worth. Richards, 
and Cline) are reading Ihis, please 
lake this into consideration when you 
are making out the final grades. 1 may 
let you borrow my American Express 
card for a week or two. if you know 

Humanities Film Series Shows The Seventh Seal 

November 18, 8:00pm 
Lynn Wood Hall 

Ingmur Bcrman's films have 

Uniied Stales. This is because 
American audiences have tradition- 
ally a.ssumed that the primary 
purpose of a film is to tell a story — 
and director Bergman has other 
inieresis. Despite the fact thai 
Modernism in 

nied by sound— contained the poien- 
lial to investigate and illustrate the in- 
creasingly problematic human 
condition. One of the most famous of 

was the Swedish director Ingmar 
The Seventh fj^l opens peculiarly.

further and do much more. These

indeed for himself that Death has 

ready—to which Death replies: 'No 
one ever is." In an aiiempi to literally 
play for time, the crusader challenges 
Death to a game of chess. As long as 
the crusader prevents Death from 
beating him. the crusader is allowed to 

The crusader has a specific reason 
for asking for more lime. Having 
spent years on a crusade experiencing 
much suffering white wimcssing even 

more, the crusader wanu to observe a 
brief inleriude of human happiness 
before Death claims him. Yet every- 
where the crusader looks, he sees 
death: death on the crusades, death 
from the plague, death caused by 
superstition. Much of this suffering 
and death is instigated by the one 
medieval institution supposedly 
dedicated to alleviating suffering— the 
church. It is the church that calls the 
crusades, that encourages superstition 
which results in flagellation and 
burnings at the stake. Where is human 
happiness to be found? 

The crusader finds happiness in an 
unlikely place. He happens on to a 
family of traveling minstrels (not 
insignificantly namedMary and 
Joseph) and their infant son. Reveling 
in outdoor living and life's simple 
pleasures, ihey generously share their 
simple food with the crusader, thus 
displaying the joy and happiness after 
which the crusader has searched. The 

viewer should not miss the irony of 
this encounter. The church (ostensi- 
bly the source of charity and love) 
causes death and suffering. The en- 
tertainment industry (symbolized by 
Mary and Joseph and officially 
frowned upon by the church for its 
laughter and frivolity) provide 
examples of happiness and love. 

After a nocturnal journey through 
a forest, during which the crusader 
prevents Death from taking Mary 
and Joseph and their baby, the 
crusader and members of his 
household are summoned by Death. 
This time there is no postponement. 

In Bergman's allegory we all play 
chess with Death. Life and Death 
are inseparably close. Ii is not a 
question of whether or not we will 
win. In this life. Death always wins. 
The question, for Bergman at least, 
is how long the game will last and 
how well we will play the game.

Measles Epidemic Feared

For Ihe past several weeks, Elanor 
Hanson. Director of Student Health, 
has been gathering information about 
the vulnerability of the student body 
of Souihem College lo the measles

classes in January. "We are only 
asking them to let us know whether 
they have been vaccinated or not," 
says Hanson. She suggests that 
students turn in Ihe information before 
Chrisimas vacation because she fears 
Ihat otherwise "there will be a line of

local Department of Public Health 
would be notified within the hour. 
Public Health would then come and

Although there have been no 
reported cases of measles on Souih- 
em's campus for Ihe last nine years, 
there have been four reported cases in

There are both students and faculty 
who reside in Bradley County. 

The main objective of the informa- 
lion program is, according to Hanson, 
"to learn how vulnerable, the campus 
is, because if we are very vulnerable 

they should go to be vaccinated. If an 
immunization program were insiiiuied 
on campus, ii would probably cost 
each student requiring service, iwenty- 
five dollars lo be vaccinated. 

If deiecied early, a student who has 
contracted the virus could be kept in 
isolation for a period of four lo six 
days. The sickness usually lasts len 

The seasons which, according lo 
Hanson, seem most conducive lo 
measles outbreaks are Fall and Spring. 

According to Hanson, "when the 
college sees a real and eminent threat 
lo the health of Ihe student body, ii 
will act more decisively. If this is 
necessary, the previous cooperation of 
the students will help ihe Health 
Services EJepanment lo act more 
accurately, more quickly, and with 
less confusion and hassle."

BJ Boles Sends Greetings fornfi Chile 

Sahdos desde el gran pafi de 
Chile. 1 hope this leiier finds you and 
your families doing well. Life for me 
is very busy, bui also very exciting 
and challenging. 

It's hard lo believe ihai I've been 
here over two and a half months. 


' It's 

springtime in Chile now. There are 
many beautiful flowers blooming and 
the hillsides are starting to mm green. 
Slowly but surely all the snow on the 
Andes mountains is melting away. 
Chile is very beautiful and at limes 1 
feel like I'm in Swii7.erland. I guess 
about now in the Slates all the trees 
are beginning to change colors. I bet 
it's really pretty there. 

I'm sorry for not writing this letter 
sooner, but my life has been very 
hectic getting used to everything. It's 
quite a shock when you're dropped 
into a strange country, with a different 
language, a new job, a new culture, 
and not knowing anyone. The shock 
has subdued now. and life is becoming 
more usual lo mc. I'm learning and 
adapting quickly to the language and 
ways of Chile, in fact some of my 
friends call me the Chileno Gringo. 

I'm living with the secretary of the 
Chile Union and his family. They are 
good Christian people and have been a 
greai help to me. They are Argentini- 
ans, so I'm learning a liiile about that 
culture as well, I'm living in Las 
Condes, which is a good section of 
Santiago. My work is not loo far from 
my house, so I ride the bus lo and 
from ihe Union. It seems like every- 
body and his brother rides the bus 
here. There are over 8,000 buses in 
Santiago alone. 

My main obligation in Chile is lo 
teach English lo Ihe officials pastors 
and workers of Ihe Seventh-day 
Adveniisi Chile Union Mission and of 
ADRA/OFASA (a food and relief 
agency). On the average 1 have 25 
classes per week. My students range 
from Union presidents to janitors, and 
from pastors to secretaries. In other 
words. I leach everyone. They are all 
at different levels. Some are first level 
beginners and others are ready for 
conversational classes. I have some 
private classes and 
classes. Needless l 
challenge teaching 

and learn more of Ihe couniry. I've 
been lo many different pans of Chile 
and nnet many wonderful people. 

Throughout my day 1 assist the 
workers in writing and translaiing 
letters lo and from the Uniied Stales, i 
also help people translaie forms that 
are in English and understand differ- 
ent items of material from the General 
Conference of S.D.A.'s in Washington 

Last month (September) was a big 

n Chili 

national holidays. September 11th 
marked the anniversary of General 
Pinochet taking control of the counny 
in 1973. September 18lh was Chile's 
Independence day and September 19lh 
was Ihe celebration It seemed every 
house had a Chilean flag. There were 
a lot of traditional dances (the 
"cueca") and a whole lot of "empana- 
das". Empanadas are a favorite 
traditional food in Chile. It was very 
interesting seeing all the shows and 
learning how another country cele- 
brates its independence. 

Each day I am met by new chal- 
lenges. I am learning a lot in Chile 
and I'm sure ihat when I'm done here 
I will look back and say 1 was glad I 

came. Every day is a class for me. I 
ihoughl I was going lo get a break 
from my classes by becoming a 
Studeni Missionary, but I was wrong. 
Every day I learn new ihings. I'm 
learning: a new language, a new 
culture, new customs, a different 
geography, how to teach, how to corr 

patience, and so much more. The 
mosi important thing I'm learning 
though, is total dependence on 
God. I have good days and I have 
bad days, but it's the Lord that carrii 
me through them all. Anything that 
accomplished here, and anything I 
learn is a direct result of ihe support 
and prayers of you, and God's 
leading and helping hand in my life. 
Thank you so very much for your 
letters, prayers, and support; wiihou'

Chattanooga police officer has told Dr. 
Wohlers that the class will be given. 
Students will receive more information 
as the program develops. 

The Senate, a body of 
tives for students at SC. invited 
Target Hardening, a security service 
company in Chattanooga, in October 
to discuss SC's need for proper 
lighting. Sherrill Long, security 
supervisor, said. "Security lights are 
needed around all building, sidewalks, 
(and) back of propeny...the lighting 
is very, very poor." Senate agreed 
that lights arc needed on the side- 
walks between Brock Hall and both 
dorms, the ladies' as well as the 
men's parking lot, and the Conference 
Center. The Senate has also said that 
a fence, which would seal off the 
courtyard, needs to be behind the girls 
dorm. The senators added that we 
need an official patrol car with a 
recognizable paint Job and lights. 

The Senate has not yet spoken to 
administration about these sugges- 
tions. So far. the Senate has only 
asked the administration to inform 
students about the rape and to squelch 
the rumors circulating around 
campus. Dr. Wohlers did so in an 
October assembly.

New iVI.A.S. computer 
being tested in library 

By A. Ue Bennett J r, 

"Oh great, now the library has 
another machine 1 have to learn how to 
use!" was ihe phrase overheard by one 
of many McKee Library patrons. 

The Magazine Article Summary 
computer has found a temporary home 
in Ihe library's periodical area, on a 60 
day trial period, with jusi over two 
weeks to go. Students will not "have" 

do will find it extremely beneHcial 
when looking up magazine articles. 

If the library decides to keep the 
index after the trial period, the 
computer supplier. Ebsco. will replace 
iis CD-ROM "brains" once a month. 
essentially leaching it every magazine 
and every article the library carries, as 
well as a few the library doesn't cany. 
The semi-current CD-ROM disc 
currently used by the index contains 
over 200 general magazines from 
January 1984 to the present. 

Upon silting at the machine for the 
firsi time, all one has to do is enter a 
title of an article wanted, an author, or 
the mosi popular category, subject. 
The computer will then quickly search 
Ihe CD-ROM for all articles pertinent 

reference two additional entries. A 
few seconds later, a list of articles 
fitting the search pattern will appear 

even a short summary of the article. 
The summary is probably the best 
feature of the index because a user 
can immediately see whether or nol 
the article is relevant to what he or 
she is looking fi 


: subject, author, or litle. a 
topic browse can also be done, which 
will give an alphabetical lisl of every 
subject the index recognizes. 

Once a decision is made to keep the 
computer, Ebsco will replace Ihe CD- 
ROM disc monthly for nine months 
out of the year. A lack of use is Ihe 
reason the remaining three summer 
months will not be updated. 

By keeping up-to-date with the 
monthly disc replacemenis, Ihe 
computer will have reference to all of 
the library's periodicals, and also lell 
if a given article is even contained in 
the library.

Aspirin or ASA, which stands for

of functions besides curing head-

effect, and decreases blood cloning. 
Because of all of these actions, we at

ASA when treating sprained ankles,

Mitchell races on Turkey Day 

by Jim King 

While you and I were home for ihe 
holidays snug in our beds, dreaming 
about the fabulous Thanksgiving feasi, 
Chris Mitchell was pounding ihe 
pavement at the Atlanta Thanksgiving 
Marathon and Half-Marathon. 

The starting gun went off at 7:30 
a.m. and 30 mph winds had forced the 
temperature below 25 degrees. "It 
was freezing cold!" said Chris. 

According lo Chris, there were ai 
least five thousand runners starting the 
1 3.5 mile race, and the great push of 
humanity kept the pace high during 
the first pari of the race. "It was like 
a vacuum." said Chris. "I ran 6:30 
miles for five miles." 

Things were going smoothly for 
Chris when he ran into a problem. 
Nature called. "Those pon-o-johns 
sure come in handy around mile 
seven." he laughed. 

Feeling the cold, Chris said he was 
shocked when a man who looked like 
he was in his seventies blitzed by him 
wearing only silk shorts and Nikes, 
"He really blew me away!" said Chris, 
'There was no way I could keep up 
with him." 

Chris said he didn't gel to train for 
the race as much as he had wanted to 
so, "around the eleven mile mark I ran 
out of gas." He was really struggling 
at the twelve and a half mile mark 
when a miracle happened. "A 

was threatening to pass. It really 
motivated me to pick it up and I 
stayed with her the rest of the way." 
Chris ended with a total time of 1 
hour 27 minutes. Not bad for Uking 

People lining Ihe streets kept yelling a 
me to keep going. I kepi wondering, 
'Where's the end!'"

Letter to the Editor 

Recently a friend received a notice 
staling chat she had skipped dorm 
worship ten times and would conse- 
quently be fined $25. Her I.D. card 
would also be deactivated. As it 
turned out Ihey were able to make 

worships skipped, and she did not have 
to pay the fine. Her I.D. card was not 

This event however, caused me to 
refiect seriously upon the school's 
religious regulations and consequently 
come to the following conclusions. 

As it stands presently. Southern 
College requires dorm students to 
attend four worships a week, three 
dorm and vespers. Sabbath School and 
Church are also required. 

Apparently, if ten or more skips 
from dorm worship are taken the 

being fined $25 and being denied the 
use of his/her I.D. card. In essence, 
students are punished for not attending 
religious activities. 

Those who enforce such regulations 
will suggest thai if a student does not 
want to attend religious activities then 
Ihey should choose an alternative 
educational institution. 

Let's look at it this way. The 
difference between a Christian school 
and a public school is ihai a Christian 
school provides religious activities, a 
public school does noL Because a 
student chooses to attend a Christian 
school over a public school should that 
mean that he must be forced to attend 
the religious activities? A Christian 
school should provide the opponuni- 

should noi require the attendance of 
iiuch activities.. By requiring students

school provides? Should we not leave 
the choice up to the student just as 
Christ leaves the choice up to us to 
follow him? 

L«t us not assume that if worships 
were no longer required that students 
would no longer come. I strongly be- 
lieve that if worships and church were 
optional, many students would still 
attend. They would attend out of their 
own spiritual aliveness and desire 10 
enter God's presence. Other SDA 
campuses have discontinued the re- 
quirement to attend daily worships and 
have found a decline in worship and 
church attendance. Yet at the same 
time, this does not prove that the

Most students I am acquainted with

College age young people should 
not be required 10 attend structured 
worship services. The mere fact that 
Ihey have chosen to enroll at a 
Christian college should be a refiection 
of their spiritual aliveness. Thus, they 
choose an institution where religious 
activities are provided. In the event 
that Ihey choose not to attend should 
not be an assumption thai Ihey are 
spiritually weak and need prompting 
towards a deeper spiritual level.

Chattanooga Times 
editor visits Southern 

By Randal Gilliam 

Paul Neely, the Managing Editor of 

Southern College Wednesday, Decem- 
ber 6. as Ediior-In-Residencc. Neely 
is a volunteer in a program sponsored 
by the American Society of Newspaper 
Editors. The program's purpose is to 
bring newspaper professionals into the 
classroom. "I think its a good sign Ihal 
Southern's Department of Journalism 
is interested and involved with the 
professional world," said Neely. 
"Some journalism departments recede 
into themselves. I think its good that 
they are trying to maintain a program 
that is grounded in reality." 

Neely spent the morning in Brock 
Hall speaking to three journalism 
classes in a row. He discussed putting 
oui a paper, becoming a managing 
editor, and the editorial position of the 
Times. During a luncheon meeting 
hosted by the Journalism Club. Neely 
offered a critique of the Southern 
Accenl - "What I like best about the 
Accent is the Viewpoints section. 
Ordinarily, I hale the man-on -the -street 
stuff," said Neely. "However, it .seems 
a different paper with each 

focus of the paper and keep a consis- 
tent layout." 

During the afternoon Neely lectured 
on the role of the press in shaping 
public opinion and conducted individ- 
ual meetings with students. 

Neely has been involved in similar 
cditor-in-residence programs with the 
University of Tennessee at both the 
Chattanooga and Knoxville campuses. 
He has not, however, conducted an all 
day program before. "This is my 
yearly quota in one day." said Neely. 

Neely did his undergraduate work at 
Williams College in Massachusetts. 
He received a joint Masters Degree in 
Journalism and Business Administra- 
tion from Columbia University in New 
York. Neely has worked in California 
at the Riverside Pr^jis-Enterprise as a 
reporter, in Kentucky at the Louisville

manufactures scientific insinimenta-

"Plenty. The more we know the

The song "Here Comes Santa

College Concert Band convinced 
Santa and his helpers to parade 
through the P.E. Center last Satur-

Not to be outdone by ihe band, 
Santa and his helpers convinced the 
audience of dieir musical abilities as 
they sang "Feliz Navidad." 

Another guest performer for the 
evening was Joseph Brooks, 
clarinetist. Coming from Western

band in "Theme and Variations," by

soloed in "Rhapsody in Blue."

blood over dozens of crucial examina-

his pre-compuier, undergraduate and 
posi-graduate years. 

"There's got to be a better way," 
said Ron to himself, before, during, 
and after every examination. Finally, 
he found that "bencr way". He 
developed a revolutionary IBM 
compatible software program, which 
he calls CRAMBO, To introduce 
CRAMBO to colleges and universities 
across the nation, the regular price of 
5199,00 has been slashed by Si I4,IX}. 

CRAMBO Users can input high- 
lighted textbook data, lecture notes. 
quizzes, past exams, into the computer 
in several question/answer formats. 
This is so easy that even a two-finger 
typist can use CRAMBO. Each entry 
is tagged to the page, chapter, text-

Through self-testing, students can pin- 
point exact pages that need more study 
and by-pass those with which they are 
thoroughly familiar. 

This exciting, new computer 
program is aimed at helping all 
CRAMBO users to dramatically 
improve their grades. It is expected to 
sweep through every college and 
university at which it is introduced, 

Ron Orlick worked his way through

students with limited financial re- 
sources. This led him to develop 
CRAMBO into a "money-maker" as

Drama is a refleciion o 
own lives, Allan Martin insists,

neglected and otherwise. 

Now in his fourth year with 
Destiny Drama Troupe-two of those as 
director-Martin has shaped a touring 
company in demand across the nation 
for perfonnances at Adventisi gather- 
ings where young adults are present. 

He won't take all the credit, 
though. The company, in its tenth year, 
has lapped the talented and stretched 
them and given ihem stage presence, 
poise, and a driving message. 

"Christian drama is on a 
plateau above secular drama in that the 
purpose is beyond entertainment," 
Martin emphasizes. 

"We liy to take Jesus Christ 
out of the ethereal twilight zone to 
where we can touch him, feel him and 
develop a relationship with Him." 

Martin calls drama the perfect 
vehicle for addressing relalionships- 
with God or anyone else. Relationships 
we've developed and relationships 
we've neglected.

Equality in 
Adventist Ministry 

Since April 1988 a group of profes- 
sional men and women living in the 
metropolitan area of Washington, 
D.C., have banded together to speak 
fonhrightly on women's ordination in 
the Seventh-day Adventist Church. 
They call themselves TEAM— Time 
for Equality in Adventist Ministry.

Craig Lastine, a senior Biology 
major and SA [^resident, began the 
week's sermons after "allowing" 
Ndaia Gooding to create a worship 
atmosphere with a vocal solo. 
Personal experiences in cycling 
races and roller-derby competitions 
with his mother contributed to 
Lastine's topic, "It Starts In Your 
Mind." Lastine was emphasizing a 
victory in the bailie of die mind,. 
Using U Corinthians 10:3-5. he 
suggested we "personalize and

rity was Lastine's pica for students, 
"Don't be different for diffcreni's 
.sake. Be different for God's sake." 

On Tuesday evening Marlyn 
Lamond gave special music. David 
Wingaie immediately followed 
with his sermon, exclaiming "It's 
lime to go home!" Wingaic is a 
future medical missionary and a 
nursing major at S,C. His sermon 
was entitled "We Shall Overcome." 
Handouts of Spirit of Prophecy and 
Biblical quotes were provided so 
students could follow Wingaie 
closely. He reminded those present 
that everyone is a royal son or 
daughter of God — heirs to salva- 
tion. Using elementary education 
major Shannon Bom as an illustra- 
tion, Wingaie proved that with jusi 
"trying" we won't get very much 
accomplished. We need the grace 
of God. 

Love was on Laura Pumum's 
mind. After a vocal solo by 
graduate Joey Pollom on Wednes- 
day, Putnum, a junior nursing 
major, presented her sermon "It's 
Where Your Heart Is." She talked 
about three kinds of love: man's 
love for man, man's love for God, 
and God's love for man. Students

all do. "Who hasn't projected into the 
future, to see where their career or 
company is heading?" asks Garfield. 
"Once we establish that mental 
rehearsal is just an amplification, a 
more systematic version of what we 
already do, it's noi difficult at all for 
people to see the applications this 
technique can have in their own lives. 

Before you start putting this 
powerful tool to work, ihe first siep is 
10 get relaxed. "That's essential," says 
Thomburg. "It frees you from the 
clutter of your day, from worrying 
about tasks that are ahead. Only when 
you're relaxed will your mind open to 
fresh ideas and techniques." 

Although relaxation tapes are 
available in book and record siores. 
that type of assistance isn't needed to 
get the requisite calm. Los Angeles 
psychotherapist Allen Rabinowitz 
offers this proven technique: "Sit in a 
chair, relaxed. Close your eyes and 
listen 10 yourself breathe. Pui your 
attention on the sound of air coming in 
and going out. Then empty your lungs 
and slowly take a deep breadi. Do ihat 
again and, as you exhale, feet yourself 
relax. Do it five more times; then 
you're done. It lakes 90 seconds." 

Then, says Thomburg. who teaches 
mental rehearsal in seminars and also 
hosts the nationally syndicated "Power 
Thoughts" radio show, "Lei your 
thoughis wander through your mind. 
Stop paying anention to them. Now 
think about a happy period of your life 
— it doesn't matter what or when it 
happened. Really get in touch with that 
experience. Now slide into imagining 
what it is you want to achieve, from 
giving a great speech to turning around 
a corporate downslide in profits, 
making the experience as real and as 
detailed as you can. Take il all the way 
from the beginning through successful 
completion. That's it. You've jusl 
mentally rehearsed." 

Thomburg explains that ihe key is 
beginning the process wilh images of 
that earlier, happy memory. 'The sub- 
conscious is gening two messages — 
first, that you're happy; the second 
message deals with the specific, future 
goal. The subconscious associates ih 
goal with your happiness, so it 
determines to work towards il," 
Thomburg says.

Q: What are the symptoms of 

A: Once again here are the 
main symptoms of measles: first 
one gets classic cold symptoms 
such as a runny nose and sore 
throai. A fever of up to 104 
degrees follows accompanied by 
white patches in the mouth, and 
finally a rash which begins at the 
hairline and eventually spreads 
down to the feet. Remember, this 
is a highly contagious disease and 
upon contraction one will be put in 
isolation for up lo two weeks. 

Q: I hear there is chicken pox 
going around this campus. How 
do you catch it? 

A: True. There have been 
several cases of chicken pox 
among the students here ai 
Southern College. Chicken pox. 
also known as varicella zosler is 
through respiratory 
and direct contact with 
new lesions. This means that one 
contracts it by breathing air or 
somehow ingesting the contami- 
nated droplets.. The varicella 
zoster virus incubates for 13-17 
days before one can actually see 
the blistering lesions, and it is con- 
tagious unul scabs have formed 
over all the lesions, usually a week 
after onset. 

So, because one doesn't know 
how is carrying the virus until the 
actual symptoms appear. 1 must 
emphasize how difficult it is to 
avoid getting it once ihe initial

school year. Billerly cold, wel. hazy 
days bring wiih them posi-Christmas 
vacaiion letdown and dreary spirits. 
But as next semester slowly creeps 
into its third weekend, the Student 
Association will throw a party that 
will bring excitement and summer- 
time back to the campus of Southern 

PARTY!!! Coming to the gymna- 
sium on Saturday night, January 20. 
It will begin at 9 p.m. and continue 
until 2 a.m. 

"If you had a good time last year, 
plan on an even better time this year," 
said Harvey Hillyer, S.A. social 

Last year's bash attracted hundreds 
of students decked out in summer 
attire. Although temperatures were 
biting outside, the gym was trans- 
formed into an 80 degree party place, 

swimming pool activities, contest, 
volleyball and Twister games. 
refreshment stands, and Beach Boys 
music piped over loud speakers. 
Hillyer said the theme for this 
year's bash will be "The Boardwalk." 
Instead of using a company to set up 
the party, the S.A. is planning all the 
activities themselves. Tentative plans 
include a dunking booth, dart throw, 
more pool activities, a lip-sync 
contest, and beach areas like last year. 
Also a pool of Jello, in which students 

can dive for specially marked 
golf balls that can be used to 
claim prizes, is in the platuiing. 
"There will be more food and 
free ice cream this year," said 
Hillyer. So don your suits.

Computer thieves strike 
Daniells Hall 

.By Bradley Hyde 


Last Saturday night belw 
pm and 10:40 am Sunday moming 
four computers were stolen from the 
computer science lab in Daniel's Hall. 
The four systems have a retail value of 
roughly S30,000. The advanced lab 
had: I ) a NeXT computer with high 
resolution display, optical disk, 
keyboard with mouse, and a laser 
printer; 2) a Polywell 386 computer 
with VGA color monitor; 3) a Wells 
American AT computer with EGA 
color monitor; and 4) a Laser Turbo 
XT computer with CGA monitor. All 
the machines had hard disk drives. 

The loss of this equipment leaves i 
lab with just one Laser Turbo XT 
computer with CGA color monilor f 
the 10 students in the graphics class 
use. There may be an insurance 

deductible and since the insurance is 
provided by tl 


church and Southern College. Even if 
full replacement is made, it will be 
some time before students have the 
equipment ihey need to properly 
complete their class work.

K.R. Davis encourages all S.C. 
students to take advantage of the Job/ 
career fair. "Start as a freshman 
looking into what's available, and 
asking questions," he said. 

The fair is a chance to prepare

New deadly sins for the 90's 


©Copyrighi 1990. USA 
TODAY/Apple College Informaiion 

The original seven deadly sins 
are pride, greed, lust, glutlony, envy, 
anger and sloth. To cop a phrase from 
George Bush, they're baaaad, they're 

That is, they were until 
recently. In the last 10 years, the seven 
deadlies seem to have shifted rapidly 
from venal to mainstream. Remember 
how "Wall Streei"'s Gordon Gekko 
^id greed is good? Have you asked a 
couch potato about slolh recently? Can 
a society with chocolate-covered Orcos 
retain any concept of gluttony? 

In lieu of getting a major oil 
company to endorse them, we asked 
several social commenlaiors for the top 
sins of contemporary times. Here's a 
septet of candidates (with special 
thanks to Donald Trump, who currently 
is guilty of them all). 

"Greed isn't a way of sin," 
says San Francisco Chronicle colum- 
nist Alice Kahn. "It's become a way of 

But in the '80s. having a big 
bank account was no longer enough. It 
was more imponani to acquire the 
perfect wife, the cutest kids, the purest- 
bred pooch, the shiniest coffeemaker. 
"The drive to get objects to validate 
yourself — it makes me want to leave 
the country," moans writer Cynthia 

Think of acquisitiveness as 
super- unleaded greed. Donald Trump, 
poster boy for acquisition, personifies 
all that is bad about the sin, according 
to San Francisco-based writer Jean

As the tide of Smug humor 
grew, some comics took a stand 
against it, "It's not an honorable 
approach," says comedian Richard 
Beizer. Others, such as Spy magazine. 
thrived on making fun of stupid 
human tricks. When Spy took a look 
at small-town America, the headline 
was "Big, Dumb White Guys With 

Eventually, smugness 
succumbed to the trickle-down iheory, 
infiltrating every aspect of everyday 
life. Food was smug. Could any other 
word describe a blue com tortilla 
chip? The smugness anthem was 
"Don't worry, be happy," which is 
very hard to hum along to if you're 
living below the poverty line. 


It's notjusi a concept 
anymore. It's a pursuit. "It's sort of a 
way to disengage yourself from brutal 
realities," says Gonick. "You read 
Danielle Steel instead of something 
wonderful, because you don't want to 
be challenged. It's an incredible 
striving toward mediocrity."

Sii back and think about yourself 
strolling along the Champs Elysees in 
Paris with your college friends. Or, if 
you prefer, imagine yourself riding on 
a train, seeing for itie first time the 
majestic Alps, Vienna, Austria, which 
isyournexl stop. In Vienna you can 
ride the biggest ferris wheel in the 
world. The cars are the size of train 
cars! Or, if ferris wheels aren't your 
thing, picture yourself louring places, 
like the Louvre, Notre Dame, St. 
Paul's, Leicister Square, and many 

other famous European sites. Imagine 
listening to Scottish men playing bag- 
pipes on the sidewalks of Edinburgh. 
Best of all, imagine getting up to six

Q. During Christmas break I found 
out my sister has anemia. What causes 
this and what is the treatment? 

A. There are many different types of 
anemia the most common being iron- 
deficiency anemia. This type is caused 
mainly by inadequate iron intake, 
chronic blood loss, pregnancy, and 
destruction of red blood cells. 

Because of women's compulsive 
dietary restrictions, menstrual cycles, 
and pregnancies we have a high risk of 
becoming anemic. However, unless il 
is a chronic problem anemia is treated 
quite simply. Iron supplements, and an 

spinach, lima beans, broccoli, raisins, 
dried apricots and peaches is suggested.

By Allison Mayers 

Saturday night, January 20, Southern 
College students were able lo leave the 
dismal winter weather behind and 
experience a taste of summer by at- 
tending the annual S.A. beach party 
held in the gymnasium. 

The students arrived at 10:00 p.m. 
decked out in sunglasses, shorts, and

Basketball: bringing out the worst in the best of us? 

By John Caskey 

"Everyone must submit himself to 
the governing auttiorilies, for there is 
no authority except thai which God has

authority is rebelling against what God

It's Basketball Season here on the 
campus of Southern College, and 
while the passage I quoted from 
Romans was clearly not intended for 
use in an intramural basketball 
program. I think it should be applied to 
us anyway. 

TTiere seems to be a lot of hatred 
and discontent welling up out there on 
the hardwood floor. I think that it's 
about titne that we put and end to it 
once and for all. We started it after 
all. and therefore, we can stop it. 

It*s just a stupid game, guys. 

No one from Southern College is 
ever going to make a living playing 
basketball. So. why do we try to make 
intramural basketball such a Ufe or 
death struggle? Three weeks after 
basketball season ends, very few 
people will be able to remember who 
won or lost or fouled out or fouled up. 
But if you consistently act like a jerk

fit to lay a MAJOR technical on you

and throw you out of the Cosmic 
Game. Permanently. That, my 
friends, is a life or death struggle. 

Far be it from me to assume a 
holier than thou attitude on this issue. 
i am one of the offenders. I freely 
admit it. I was worse last year. I will 
be better in the next game. 

I challenge every player and 
every ref and Jaecks and Evans and 
the spectators and the people who 
don't care about basketball at all (but 
just happen to be wandering around 
in the gym) to follow this simple 

"If you don't have sometbing 
kind or beneficial or good to say 
then keep your moutb shut" 

Don't try to call the game for the 
refs. Don't clap or cheer when the 
refs make a call against the 
team. Don't bellyache and 
groan when they make a call against 
your team. Congratulate your

When in doubt, shut up. 

If everybody involved in the 
intramural program can't do this, then i 
suggest that we abolish the program 

think a little healthy competition on the 
playing field is good for the human soul. 
But. the spirit of "win at all costs" and 
'I'm better than you" and "the ref is 
biased against me" and "your ugly and 
your momma dresses you funny" does 
not have a place on a "Christian" 

We all need to sit down and have a 
long hard think about our priorities from 
time to lime. If after doing so you find 
that your first priority is to win an 
intramural basketball then you don't 
belong here on the campus of Southern 
College of Seventh-day Adventists, 

Rule your desires lest 
your desires rule you. 

Letter to 
the Editor 

Dear Editor. 

I was reading through the recent 
edition of the "Accent" when I 
came to the veiwpoinl section 
("What do you think of the new 
hair policy for men?"). I was 
greatly distressed at this question. 

1 would like to personally thank 
the deans of Talge Hall and all 
others responsible for this new rule 
Thanks to you our fine, young men

guys (

Why all of the fuss about hairstyles^' 
If Jesus walked on our campus, would 
the Deans make him cut his hair? 

Stop worrying about the guys' hair 
and start worrying about more important 
things like whether they are getting a 
good education. After all. are we here 
for an education or a hair grooming 
lesson? We are paying for a career — not 
a haircut! 

i have a friend (who shall remain 
unidentified to protect his hair's 
- length) that I will call "John". John 
has hair a little past his collar, but it 
IS neatly groomed and looks good 

forced to have those locks re- 
moved, he will look like a little kid 

I have another friend. Let's call 
him "Fred", Fred used to have hair 
the same length. He had to get his 
cui and does qqi look the same. 
Thanks again! 

1 say that if a guy wants to have 

power to him. as long as it's kept 
neat and not a rat's nest. Some 
guys just look better with longer 
hair. So many times in high school 

Why are they being told to cut 
their hair all of the sudden? Why 
not at the beeinnin^ of last semes- 

1 agree with the viewpoints of il

These are just a few of the 
projects that Lacey has on his 
overall plan for Industrial IDrive. 

Many things must be considered 
with a problem like Industrial 
Drive, the main thing to remem- 
ber is that these projects lake time. 
As Mr. Lacey said. "If you want to 
waste money, gel in a hurry." To 
gel a quality job at a good price, 
one must accept delays. 

One such barrier is getting some 
buried communciation cables 
located low enough to build the 
parking lot over them. This and 
other problems make it impossible 
to set deadlines or dates for the 
completion of Industrial Drive. 
No one knows how many more 
glitches will have to be dealt with. 
"We just have to confront the 
obstacles as they come," said Mr. 

Although it may take a while, the 
improvements should be well 
worth the wait, and all will be 
happy to know that action is being 
taken on Industrial Drive.

benefit incoming freshmen and needy 
students. In December 1989, one of 
the biggest portions of the money to

million dollar goal. It began with a 
challenge to Southern College board*

span of two years. 

Pan two of the challenge was 
successfully met by the proposed date 

with a 100% participation from all 
board members. Part one is still in 
progress with a total of $362,452 given 
by the board. When this challenge is 
complete, it will have added 
$2,400,000 to the fund, giving a grand 
total of approximately $7,000,000 in

have to invest at the current percentage

Gil: helping 
students help 

The Center for Individualized 
Instruction, or CII, was opened at 
Southern College this school year 
especially for students needing 
extra help with their college 

Sponsored by the Education 
Department, the Cn offers tutors 
throughout the day in math and 
English. If students need tutoring 
in other classes, the CII will try to 
arrange for this additional help. 

The Cn is located on the 
second floor of the library and is 
open on Mondays and Wednes- 
days, 11:00 a.m. until 9:30 p.m.; 
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:00 
a.m. until 9:30 p.m.; and on 
Sundays, 2:00 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. 
During diese times, students may 
stop by or set up appointments 
before coming. 

Presently there are 17 regular 
tutors working on alternating 

So far, attendance at the 
Center has been very regular and 
the director, Dr. Carol Haynes. is 
excited about future plans for CII. 
One plan is to initiate a student 
survival course designed to help 
students who are new to college or 
who are on academic probation. 
The program would include topics 
like time management skills and 
better study skills which would 
help students adapt to college 
studies and die discipline it lake-- 
to pass them. 

The Center for Individualized 
Instruction is specifically designed 
to help students help themselves 
and is a beneficial additive to a 
student's college curriculum.

Laughter is universal, and it sounds the 
same in every part of the worid. We 
choose lo laugh. No one can force us 
to laugh (an honest laugh). Laughter 
often goes hand-in-hand with happi- 
ness, but not always. 

The gift of laughter was given to us 
by God for the purpose of bringing

distresses of the world. Most of us 
enjoy humorous things such as the 
comics in a newspaper and the sight of 
playful puppies rolling around in the 
grass. To laugh means to break down 
barriers and replace them with friends. 
Who can reach a group of first graders 

more effectively — the president of 
Disney World or Goofy? Laughter can 
mend, delight, and uplift. 

However, laughter also has the 
power to cause a great deal of pain, 
more aptly tenned mocking or ridicule. 
this type of laughter can hurt feelings 
and destroy self-esteem. 

Several years ago in a small town in 
Minnesota, a twelve -year-old boy 
hobbled off the bus (he had broken his 
ankle and was on cmtches) for his first 
day of junior high school. As he made 
his way up the rain-soaked sidewalk, 
he was excited about his initial taste of 
seventh grade. But, when he walked 
through the huge double doors, his 
crutches gave way to the slippery tile 
floor.... The next thing he knew he 
was sprawled out in front of "millions" 
of hysterical ninth graders.

will never forget that feeling of embar-

As we continue to laugh at the jokes, 
comical characters, and unexpected 
happenings of our lives, may we also 
remember to laugh at others as we 
would have ihem laugh at us.

Bud the Hamster defies death

SALEM. Ore. — Cats may n 



Take Bud the Hamsier. 

Bud defied death last week, to the 
delight of his 6-year-old owner, when 
he survived a night in the family food 

"I thoughl he would go up lo 
heaven, and my mom would buy me a 
new one," Bradley Snoddy of Salem 

Bradley and his mother. Mary 
Ann Snoddy, were certain Bud was 
spending his last days on a death bed 
of wood chips in the comer of the 
cage. Bud was 4-years-old, far beyond 
the average life expectancy for a 
hamster, which is 1 1/2 to 2 years. 

Snoddy and her son were looking 
for a way to put Bud out of his misery. 
She called a Salem pet store and was 
advised to put the sickly hamster in the 
freezer, where he would "fall asleep 


"We had a very rough night. A 
were totally devastated. My son w 
tears all night," she recalled. 

But Bud refused to lay down and 

The rodent chewed his way out of 
the paper bag. The would-be death 
chamber became an arctic all-you-can 
eat smorgasbord for Bud, who spent 
the night munching on frozen hash 
browns and a brick-hard loaf of bread. 

The next morning, Snoddy 


"I thought that was the best way to 
dispose of an animal without causing 
any suffering," she said, describing 
how she bundled Bud up in cloth 
Wednesday night, putting him in a 
paper bag and placing him in the 

dispose of Bud's body. 

"I opened the freezer door, and 
flop, onto the floor fell the hamsier. He 
sat up on his hind legs, and looked at 
me like "why did you do this to me?' " 

Since then. Bud has had a new 
lease on life. In fact, he even has a new 
exercise wheel. "He's just fine. Just 
the regular, normal hamster that we 
had before," Snoddy said. 

Salem veterinarian Stephanie 
Hazen said Snoddy got bum advice on 

"You can't kill animals putting 
them in a freezer. They live and live 
for days," she said. 

Because it is a slow, often painful 
death, she recommended instead that 
people take dying animals to the 
Humane Society to have them 
euthanized painlessly.

As I was walking through the student

seen a lot of squirrels but this one was 
being a tad obnoxious. He was sitting at 
the tip of a ragged, broken-off branch, 
diinking his whole purpose in life was to

screaming ai and why was he screamin 

The answer lo the first question 
quickly became plain. The squirrel wa; 
staring at a spot which contained a 
contented, sleeping cat. 

The second question was not so easH 
answered. The squirrel was safe. He 
was 30 feel up in a tree that was 40 feel 
from the sleeping cat. The problem wa 
merely that the cat was diere. 

Now, I bet in the past the cat liked 
squirrels, or at least tolerated diem but ] 
wouldn't be surprised if diat cat was no

squirrels that sat and screamed at a

As I watched I noticed diat the cat 
continued to sleep. Although his 
opinion of squirrels had undoubtedly 
dropped several notches. 

And the squirrel? Well, as he 
continued lo look tense and scream he 
began to visibly tire. All for what? I

screams began to weaken, his head

February is Black History Month 


©Copyright 1990, USA TODAY/ 
Apple College Information Network. 

In 1955, the black, expatriate 
American writer James Baldwin said, 
"The world is white no longer, and it 
will never be white again." 

The world never was white — 
although it is hard to arrive at that 
conclusion after reading U.S. history 
books written from a mostly while, 
mostly male perspective. 

But other voices have always told 
other histories, and in 1924, people 
started listening. That was the first 
year a weeic was set aside to observe 
the achievements of blacks in U.S. 

Since 1924, the name of the 
observance has changed several times, 
and in 1976. the length was extended

variety of students representing many 
different backgrounds, countries, and 
cultures, each with different desires 

g the SI 

quo; I envision the S.A. President to 
be the spokesperson for each of these 
different sects of students. 

Having been here at Southern for 
three years, I have learned many 
tilings. One, is that die students of 
Soutiiem want, not only an S.A, 
President, but someone who will be 
their representative to the sometimes 
arbitrary Administration'; someone 
who will stand up and defend the 
rights of every student AstheS.A. 
President, I would be dedicated lo 
defending these rights and lo making 
next year the best year imaginable. 
How can 1 help make next year so 
good? Simply by working my 
hardest for you, the students of 
Southern College, I don't have a 
flashy slogan, or a campaign full of 
hype — only a platform tiial pledges 
change, a platfonn that is tailored to 
the individual student, a platform that 
promises a fun and exciting year, and 
a platform that expresses my desire 
to represent the interests and desire 
of die student body of Southern 
College. 1 want to help you run

Southern College and the

very imporunt to me. As Execu- 
tive Vice President I would help to 
make the life of the student better 

First, as Executive Vice Presi- 
dent I will also be chairman of the 
Southern College Student Senate. I 
strongly believe that Senate is one 
of the most imporlanl ways for 
student projects to be accomplished 
and student views to be expressed 
to the administration and faculty. 
As a Senator here at Southern I 
have had the important opponuniiy 
to participate in the interworkings 
of this representative body. As 
chairman of the Project Committee 
tills year I have worked with many 
students and faculty members. I 
think this experience has been ex- 
tremely important in my under- 
standing of how to best get accom- 
plished items which students would 
like. As leader of the the Senate! 
will seek to make the Senate more 
responsive to the views of their 
consituents and more visionary in 
plans to better the life of the

to nrn for Executive Vice-Presi- 
dent of die SASCSDA because I 
claim to have three ingredients. 
They are dedication, detemiina- 

S.A. Vice President 

I want to strengthen the Senate by 
listening to the students' cry of 
change. Through the Senate and 
under my leadership, the cry of 
change will lum into a cry of 
strength whereby administration 
will listen and take action to what 
our ciy of strength is. 

However, the Executive Vice- 
President needs to be a strong 
leader, motivator, spokesman, 
teacher, inslnicior, and most of all a 
servant to he students. These are 

this job.

Dear Fellow Student, 

Southern College needs 
you and your input. It also needs 
leadership, the kind of experienced 
leadei^hip I would like to provide 
for you. I have had three previous 
years of experience working with a 
student association. During these 
years. I've held various offices, the 
most prominent being president. 
The student association elections are 
approaching and I, Kevin Snider, am 
running for executive vice-president. 

What I hope to accomplish as 
your executive vice-president are the 
changes that you, the student body, 
deem important. After ulking with 
some of our fellow students, it has 
been brought to my attention thai 
several issues need to be addressed. 
A few of them are the following; 

1. campus safety, 

2. revised auto parking 

3. more weekend activities, 

4. increased senior privileges, 

5. the hair issue, and 

6. classroom attire (shorts). 

With the coming of the election, I 
would appreciate your supporting 
vote for executive vice-president. 

Candidates for Social Vice Prfisiripnt 

As a candidate for the position of 
Student Association Social Vice- 
President I believe that it is my first 
responsibility to plan and execute 
social activities for the students that 
would be immensely enjoyable and 
well worth attending. 

I believe that another re- 
sponsibility in filling the position of 
Social Vice-President is to make the 

s feel a

Welcome Party to the very day of 
graduation. I feel that the time 
spent with friends in college is very 
important, and I would like to make 
it as fun for Southern students as

Letters to 
the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

This letter is written is 
response to the article titled "Bas- 
ketball: bringing out the worst in 
the best of us." It was in the Feb. 1 

I have sent this to offer an 
alternative perspective on athletics, 
which includes basketball. Basket- 
ball is not a "stupid game" and in- 
fering that athletics are is ridicu- 
lous. Participation in athletics 
allows for the oppurtunity to grow 
in the areas of personal potential, 
teamwork, discipline, patience, 
overcoming obstacles, and decision 
making, to name a few. 

To say that "no one from 
Southern College is ever going to 
make a living playing basketball" 
is probably an accurate statement. 
However, why should one close 
the door on an activity that brings 
enjoyment just because it is not 

Dare I mention that other 
activities like singing or playing a 
musical instrument will hardly 
provide a means for support for the 
greater majority of Southern 
College students. These extracur- 
ricular activities are held in higher 
regard and to think the same com- 
petative nature is not in their par- 
ticipants would be foolish. Pride, 
envy, frustration and jealousy are 
certainly present but because it is 
hidden easier and very subtle, 
public scorn is not levied as 

God has given and ability 

The man who never alters his opinion is like standing 
water, & breeds reptiles of the mind.

South Africa... 

Dear Editor, 

Considering the currenl affairs 
within the South African political 
arena, it is my objective in view of 
issues mentioned during chapel, 
Febmaiy 22, 1990, to provide the 
Southern College students with the 
alternative point of view. 

I respect the rights of individuals 
hold opinions on any issue-social, 
religious or political; however, I 
expect the relevant facts, both 
negative and positive, before such a 
person attempts to address a congre- 
gation of people. 

Addressing the issue of labour 
unions, (he speaker gave the impres- 
sion it was impossible for black 
workers to protest peacefully or to 
approach labour relations officials 
about working problems without 
being harassed or arrested by South 
African Police in the early 1970"s. 
He did, however, fail to mention 
until 1979, unions were illegal ir 

that are more important and should be 
addressed more often. Or, would 
addressing these issues in public be an 
admission of their presence on our 

South Africa, and I 
of suike was illegal.. .Labour rela- 
tions were only addressed by a com- 
mission of inquiry on legislation in 
the late 70's. Government statistics 
show labour union membership in 
1979 as zero, growing to more than 
600.000 in 1985. All unions prior to 
1979 were unregistered and there- 
fore, unlawful. 

With regard to the African Na- 
tional congress (ANC) having the 
support of all South Africans, he 
failed lo mention Gatsha Buthelezl, 
Paramount Chief of 6.4 million Zulus 
who constitute one third of the black 
population in South Africa. Buthe- 
lezl enjoys the majority of while 
.support and is acclaimed by inlema- 

AMcan Police action to quell riots as 
opposed lo 496 blacks killed by black 
radicals (Talking with the 
ANCPerskor, 1986). 

With reference to education, (many of 
us were led to believe the Chapel hour 
would deal with the future of SDA 
schools in South Africa) he failed to 

governmental institutions which have 
been multi-racial for the past ten years. 
A new education dispensation was 
formulated in the White Paper on die 
provision of Education (1983) and 
established the National Policy for 
Education Affairs Act (Act 76 of 1984) 
to place education levels for all racial 
groups on a level fooling. What of the 
five "black only" universities in South 
Africa? All so-called white universities 
are fully multi-racial and have been for 
many years. University of Soudi Africa 
which is the largest correspondence 
university in the world has a predomi- 
nantly black enrollment. The oppressed 
black school graduate also receives 67% 
of government scholarships to continue 
his education. The South African Brew- 
eries, largest company in South Africa, 
only awards scholarships to blacks. 
Black schools are burnt down and 
classes boycotted by students at the 

e of black radical leaders within 

... ; ANC. 

Furthermore, the speaker stated the 
ANC only uses violence as a means 
of defense. How much defense is 
needed against irmocent women and 
children of all nationalities? Limpet 
mines and plastic explosives placed 
in restaurants and shopping centres 
frequented by all nationalities are by 
no means a line of defense. The 

communist vehicle. The ANC "s 
Radio Freedom on May 11, 1986 
staled: "If Botiia expects to buy time 
by appealing lo non-exisieni, non- 
communisl, ANC leaders, then Bodia 
has missed the freedom boat" 
(Talking with the ANC.Perskor 

Since August 1985, 381 black 
people have died during South 

Nelson Mandella returned to the dusly 
streets of Soweto. I wonder how he will 
enjoy his 5250,000 mansion constructed 
by ANC funds, as he lives in poverty 
with his people? 

What place did all this misleading 
have in our church? Liberation Theolo- 
gists such as Desmond Tutu, Professor 
Pyerers-Naude, Alan Boesak, and 
Desmond Hurley have split their 
denominations in half for preaching 
politics from the pulpit. Politics has its 
place, but not in church, and we at least 
expect a balanced, credible presentation 
from the rostmm. 

What about SevenUi-day Advenii.^i 
schools in Soudi Africa? How do 
labour unions, the ANC, Nelson 
Mandella, and recent political events 
have any baring on decisions diat lie 
solely with the SDA Conference? The 
speaker was too wrapped up in politics 

wrapf)ed up in supplying the alternative 
view to ask. Nkosi Sikclele e' Afrika

It SA eleclions speech like \i 

e might hear a campaign 

limes I couldn'l help thinking I was the 
only one inleresied. According lo the 
•official announcements posted the day 
after the election, less than half of the 
student body took the opporlunily to 
vote. I find this fascinating. Mind 
you, I'm not so much concerned with 
why less than half of you voted, as I 
am with how this trend could affect 
future S.A. elections- 
After considerable cogitation and a 
preponderance of pondering, Cve 
reached a conclusion. One that is at 
the same time frightening and intrigu- 
ing. Whereas in recent eleclions it has 
been fashionable to make student 
involvement the focus of a candidate's 
campaign (for example: Mark Wal- 
drop's "You Belong", or Woody 
White's "Your S.A. Your Way"), in 
the future it's very likely some 
innovative student will attempt to 
capitalize on the general student body 
apathy by incorporating it into his 
campaign. Imagine someone running 
for S.A, President with the slogan "My 
S, A,. My Way," or "Vote For Me, I'll 
Leave You Alone." It could happen. 

Southern College students, are you 
tired of student leaders continually 
hassling you to get involved in campus 
life? Are you tired of being told you 
should vole for this office or that 
office? Do you sometimes wish these 
student leaders would just disappear? 
Well, now you can do something to 
make those dreams come true. 

As Candidate for SA. President. I 
recognize that the majority of you 
couldn'l care less about what happens 


Stand up for your right to be unin- 
volved. If/ am elected SA. president 
I promise three things: 

1 . I promise lo do away with SA. 
chapels. They' re boring, and most 
students would rather carl up with a 
good chemistry or anatomy textbook 

2. I promise never to try to get you 
involved in anything, at anytime, ever.

to any opinions that are offered.

Once on Ihe brink of eradi- 
cation, measles is striking back 
with a vengeance. 

The disease has killed 15 
people nationwide this year, and 
the cases are mounting faster this 
spring than last year, which ended 
with an alarming 16,240 cases and 
45 deaths. 

With schools across Ihe 
country breaking for spring vaca- 
tions, public health officials are 
worried that measles will spread 
farther, wider and faster. 

"There's a good possibility 
that we will have spread where we 
have measles outbreaks," said 
George Seastrom, a consultant 
with the Centers for Disease 
Control. "If (students) intermix, 
they'll pick it up." 

Spring break meccas such 
as Florida's Fort Lauderdale and 

Daytona Beach and South Padre 
Island. Texas, wnll literally become 
measles hotbeds: fun, sun and a 
hardy virus that can survive in 
warm humid conditions for three 

"Rather than keeping 
measles within certain coUege 
campuses, it's going to be spread 
to various schools this way," 
Seastrom said. 

Inadequate immunization 
among students is just part of the 
problem; about half of the cases 
are pre-schoolers, many in immi- 
grant or inner-city families who 
are not aware of the need for 

As of Feb. 17, 52 out- 
breaks of measles have been found 
in 16 states: Maryland. Florida, 
Illinois, Wisconsin, Texas, Califor- 
nia, Alaska, Pennsylvannia, 
Missouri. Oregon, Maine, New 
York, Indiana, Ohio, Oklahoma 
and Michigan. 

"It's everywhere." said 

Number of measles cases 

Measles cases in Ihe United States hit an 
alt-lime low at 1 ,500 in 1 983 before soaring to 
16,236 last year.' So (ar this year, there have 
been 1 ,1 50 cases, more than double the 
number reported by this time last year. 

Judy Ganit, a CDC health educa- 
tion and information specialist. 

The outbreak in Los 
Angeles County persists after an 
unusually long 2 1/2 year^, 
making more than 3,260 people 
sick. Chicago has reported 2,370 
cases since its March 1989 
outbreak. Dallas has seen 1,200 
cases to date over a similar 

In Fresno County, health 
officials suspect that cultural mis- 
understanding of vaccinations 
contributed to the measles deaths 
of nine Laotian children. That 
spurred officials in St. Paul, 
Minn., to launch a door-to-door 
immunization program targeting 
Hmong children from Laos. 

Both counties have heavy 
concentrations of Hmong who 
live in cramped quarters, making 
them particularly susceptible to 
contagions like measles. 

All states require children 
to be immunized before starting 
school. Because the measles 
vaccine is considered 95 percent 
effective, the CDC recommends a 
two-dose immunization: one for 
infants at 15 months old and 
another before the child enters 
school. People are considered 
immune if they: 

— Were bom before 
1957 since they likely had 
childhood exposure to the dis- 

— Already had the 

— Are adequately vacci- 
nated according to standards. 

Inadequate immuniza- 
tions have created an entire 
generation of young people who 
may be vulnerable to the viral 

People bom between 
1957 and 1976 may have been 

vaccinated too young for life-time 
immunity while those bom be- 
tween 1976 and 1980 may have 
gotten ineffective vaccine doses, 
the CDC said. 

The deficiency is emerg- 
ing nationwide on campuses like 
the University of Maine, where 
400 students without current 
immunization records are being 
excluded from classes until March 
19 because of an outbreak among 
45 students. 

Earlier this month, a 30- 
case outbreak in Allegan County. 
Mich., caused a high school 
basketball game to be played 
without fans. The University of 
Oregon, citing the growing number 
of cases among young adults, will 
require all new students next fall to 
have been vaccinated for the dis- 

That requirement is fast 
becoming standard policy for 
colleges, Seastrom said. "An out- 
break really upsets the whole 
routine of a university. After

going to job interviews. These

Outbreaks also have hit 
Amish communities in Canton,

Twenty yea"^ ago, hopes 
were high that measles would be 
vanquished. Public vaccination 
programs moved successfully 
toward that goal and in 1983, the 
number of cases hit an all- 
of 1,500. Since then, however, the 
number of cases has surged.

WASHINGTON — It may be 

from ihe two-week sit-in at Tennessee 
Siaie University, but a rash of similar 
campus protests in the past year have 
yielded mixed results. 

For every Howard University in 
Washington — where Republican 
National Chairman Lee Atwaier 
resigned from the board of trustees last 
March after angry students occupied a 
building for three days — there is a 
University of Massachusetts. There,

demonstrations opposing it.

At TSU in Nashville, students ended 
their sit-in March 8 with an agreement 
to pay for damages caused to the 
administration building and for long- 
distance phone calls they made. They 
also agreed their behavior was 

In return, the administration has 
promised to make financial records 
available (o students, put greater 
emphasis on maintenance and repairs, 
and form a committee to monitor 
concerns — prompting both sides to 
declare victory. 

The success of student protests is not 
always absolute, however. 

The same month of the Stanford 
protest, black studenu at Michigan 
Stale University in East Lansing ended 
a weeklong sit-in at the administration 
building after school oITicials agreed to 
consider the protesters' 36 requests 
regarding minority concerns. 

Among their demands was that 
Michigan Stale appoint a vice presi-

a position of minority adviser, though

Lee June, said that while some of 
students' remaining requests have been 
addressed — for instance, the school 
has held a conference on black issues 
— officials have been "generally slow" 
to respond to other concerns, such as 
hiring minority faculty. 

Regardless, June said, the protest 
served a piupose: At a school where 
blacks comprise only 5 percent of the 
42,000 students enrolled, "They got the 
administration's attention and moved 
along the agenda further." 

The key to a successful protest may 
lie in knowing in advance what 
concessions a college or university is 
willing to make, said Dave Cutler, a 
representative of the Washington- 
based United States Student Associa- 

"As long as students are aware of 
what they're capable of achieving, a 
sufficiently organized student body can 
get just about anything," Cutler said. 

At tiny Paine College in Augusta. 
Ga.. 300 of the school's 550 students 
staged a 27-hour sit-in last September 
to protest security conditions in the 
wake of an on-campus shooting. The 
school responded by installing high- 
intensity lights on campus, arming its

up security booths at both campus

Los Angeles appointed an H -member 
committee of faculty, alumni and 
community leaders to monitor race 
relations after five students walked 
into President James N. Loughran's 
office last April and refused to leave 
until he addressed racial problems. 

Just last week, students at Morgan 
Slate University in Baltimore ended a 
weeklong protest by convincing the 
administration to install more lights 
and hire six more security guards.

A: I believe it all depends on how 
sensitive one is lo caffeine. Many 
people are not aware that taking over- 
the-counter caffeine medications is not 
quite the same as drinking a Coke or 
Mountain Dew to stay awake. 

Did you know that No-Doz has 100 
milligrams of caffeine and Vivarin has 
200 mg? One can compare those 
figures to the 46 mg in Coke and 54 
mg in Mountain Dew. So as you can 
see, taking one Vivarin equals 3.7 cans 
of Mountain Dew. 

Adverse reactions to caffeine 

products include rapid pulse, respira- 
tions with hyperventilation, confusion. 
irritability, nausea, hallucinations, 

coma. It lakes approjiimaiely 5-6 
hours for the body to metabolize half 
the amount of the caffeine ingested by 
an adult, this means that the symp- 
toms will remain with you for a while. 

The harmful effects of caffeine are 
quite evident, yet many not only 
choose to ingest it but go as far as 
sharing with their friends No-Doz and 


ying a 

study. That is a great responsibility to 
take into one's' hands knowing that 
everyone reacts to caffeine differently. 
You'd be a fool for giving it to a friend 
and a greater one for taking it.

Ball Slate? 


What if ihey gave an NCAA 
regional and nobody you expected 

Bloody Sunday is over, and ihe 
NCAA Toumameni is down to the 
Sweet 1 6. It doesn't have No. I seed 
Oklahoma. Or No. 2 seeds Purdue, 
Kansas or Arizona — a shocking 22- 
poini loser to Alabama. Or Geor- 
getown, Louisville or Missouri. One 
after another, ihe big names were 
carried out on their shields, while the 
little guys danced at midcouri. The 
NCAA bracket is beginning to sound 
like the NTT. 

It doesn't have defending champion 
Michigan. Not anymore. 


Big Eight, the league that controlled 
the lop of the polls all season. The 
Plains went ploohy. 

Of the 16 teams seeded in Ihe lop 
four in each region, nine were upset. 
Last year? Only three look the early 

But it is March, and drama has hit 
the ground running. 

They played 16 games Saturday 
and Sunday. Twelve were decided by 
four points or less. The Super Bowl. 

"There are no easy teams left," 
Texas coach Tom Fenders said after 
his Longhoms stunned Purdue. "But I 
didn't see any, anyway." 

Nobody was safe. Michigan Slate, 
pride of the Big Ten, huffed past 
Murray State and puffed past Califor- 
nia-Santa Barbara. 

There is a I2th seed still running. 
Ball State is in the regional for the Hrsl 

So is 1 Oth-seeded Texas and 6th- 

seeded Xavier. 

"The big thing was," Xavier coach 
Pete Gillen said after his team beat 
Georgetown, "our players believed 

they could win. We're closing the gap 
on these superpowers." 

They all believe now. From Prince- 

Before this past week. Ball Stale 
and Xavier had each won one NCAA 
tournament game in history. Now 
they're both in the regional. 

Proud old names of questionable 
current strength also moved in. 

There is UCLA, which hasn't been 
this far since Larry Brown took the 

There is Noilh Carolina, which 
spent much of ihe season answering 
questions about why it was supposedly 
the worst Tar Heel team since either 
Ihe Neanderthal era or before Dean 
Smith was coach, whichever came 

"Now," said Rick Fox, the Tar Heel 
whose basket sank Oklahoma, "people 
will look at us differently," 

Meanwhile, Loyola Marymounl 
builds on a story for the ages. Emotion 

magnable level — 149 points worth 
against Michigan Sunday, With each 
passing victory, another layer goes on 
a legend. 

The Big Eight had the best rankings 
this season. The Big Ten had the most 
teams invited. Seven. 

But now ihat we have a Sweet 16. 
mirror, minor on Ihe wall, who's the 

The Atlantic Coast Conference. 
Five teams came in, four are still 
going. And Virginia just missed. The 
Big Ten, meanwhile, is down to two. 

The bad-news league goes good. 
The league that gave us probation at 
Maryland and a cesspool at North 
Carolina State also gives us one-fourlh 

EAST — Connecticut is the one 
top seed that breezed through the first 
weekend, the Huskies' pressure 
defense is beginning to look like a 
ticket to Denver. 

Next up for Connecticut is 
Clemson, which spent the weekend 
on Ihe brink: winning only because 
BYU missed a late layup and rallying 
from 19 back to beat La Salle, 

"God gave us this game," 
Clemson's Ricky Jones said after the

John Wooden won his first champi- 

Duke has won three of the last 
four regionals played in East Ruther- 

SOUTHEAST — Top-seed 
Michigan State made its way through 
the early rounds with defense, but 
will have to turn things up to get past 
Georgia Tech in New Orleans. 

Minnesota and Syracuse meet in 
the other game. This is the one region 
that went almost exactly according to 

area for the favontes. The top three 

No. 4 seed Arkansas is the favorite 
but the Razorbacks have serious 
obstacles in Dallas, beginning with 
North Carolina, which may be just 
hitting its peak. 

Or do the Tar Heels have a letdown 
after knocking off Oklahoma? 

"Not a chance," guard King Rice 
said. "We've struggled a lot, and we're 
not going to lapse now. We want to 
make the final show," 

The other game is the duel of the 
underdogs, with Xavier against Texas, 
which had the rotten luck of having to 
play Purdue in Indianapolis, but comes 
back to Texas for the regional in 

"A lot of people booed us there 
during Ihe Southwest Conference 
tournament," Fenders said.

be the favorite, especially in Ihe first 
game against unheralded Ball Stale, 
the first Mid -American Conference 
team to gel to this round in 1 1 years.

Elvis Presley, freshman 
music major, was expelled, and 
Edgar Allen Poe. Walla Walla 
transfer student, was put on lifetime 
Citizenship Probation last Sunday 
following an impromptu perform- 
ance of the Southern College school 

The duo set up their band 
in the middle of Taylor Circle and 
played to the homeless and the 
auto-body workers repairing Wright 
Hall. Student-S rushed from their 
dorm rooms to hear the music. This 
is the first time students anywhere 
have voluntarily attended a per- 
formance of a school song. 

When asked why they 
chose this particular piece, Poe said, 
"This is a song we utterly loathed 
for fifteen long years, but now we 

resurrected it in a slightly more tricky 
form to make it a litUe more fun to play." 
Elvis agreed, "Yep." 

Obviously, the students enjoyed 
the performance. Even the radical 
militant feminists left off their heckling 
long enough to listen in on the concert. 
But not everyone was happy. 

Dr. McArthur, history depart- 
ment chairman, called the performance 
"an abomination. ..literally shame and 
degradation... worse than burning nags." 

McArthur contacted Dr. Sahly 
who had been conferring with Richard 
Nixon on methods for student control. 
Sahly immediately unplugged Elvis' 
microphone, abrubily ending the conce 

Sahly said, "In light of the ^ 
hectic events of last week, it wouldn't be 
prudent at this juncture to allow this so

According to Indy. Monte 
Mitzelfeit, sophomore computer 
science major discovered that the 
transcendent aura and focusing power 
of the common potato greatly re- 
sembles that of the quartz crystal, 
during his travels in Belgium. After 
several minutes of intensive study, he 
founded a new monastic order combin-

"The Potato Head Groove Thing."

Southern College intelligence quotient. 
Mitzelfeit abandoned his plan to build 
a pyramid over the campus and instead 
implemented potato power. He 
recruited huge numbers of converts 
who began performing daily rituals

This is a ^pica! example of 
the Mouse problem. A problem which 
is sweeping over our campus faster 
than Michael Gorbachev can ovemin 

According to Larry Williams, 
of the Psychology departmenl, at least 
8 percent of the population will always 
be mice. "There's something of the

us can honestly say we haven't set fire 
to some large public building or 
hospital or something at one time or 
another in our lives. I know I have." 

However, students are clearly 
hostile to mice. "I understand that 
they can't help themselves." says Mike 


Alex "William Jennings" Bryan. "I 
think that these mouse offenders 
clearly deserve the death penalty." 

Darin Stewan said, "I'm an

take a dim view of mice. "We know 
that these things (Mouse parties) are

scene. They've made several buys in 
the area recently.,. Brie,

view on April 6. Sahly said Ihe 
enrollmenl. quality of academic 
programs, science facilities, spiritual- 
ity, and hiring more minority faculty 
are his five major goals. 


As I look to the 1990s it is my goal 
to have a spiritual revival, not just on 
campus but in the church at large. The 
church growth here in North America 
is in a pathetic state especially when 
compared to the rest of the world. 

The final goal I want to address is 
creating balance in the diverse popula-

Southern has just introduced a market-

Our hope is that the current interest in 
marketing will continue to mature and 
grow into a solid major. 

Another goal we must address

tories and classrooms are the oldest 
parts of our campus. We are going to

"There are many types of grants and 
loans students can receive." says Ken 
Norton, Director of Student Finance. 
Some of these include Restricted 
Scholarships, Pell Grants. Slate Grants. 
Supplemental Educational Opportunity 
Grants, Stafford Loans, Perkins Loans. 
and Work-Study Programs. 

Restricted Scholarships are given to 
sludenLs who maintain high academic 
achievement and/or meet the require- 
ments of the individual scholarh.sip. 

For example, a Dora McClellan 
Brown Scholarship is for theology 
majors and a George Aldcn Nursing 
Scholarship is for nursing students 
from Florida. Many more restricted 
scholarships arc listed in the Financial 
Aid section of the Southern College

can show they have a great financial 
need. Not just anyone can obtain a 
grant. The student must apply for 
federal aid (grants) and then submit : 

letter of request to the Loan and 
Scholarship Committee. The commit- 
tee will then look at the student's grade 
point average, ACT scores, citizenship 
record, and work record to see if the 
student is really putting forth enough 
effort to be worthy of financial aid. 
The student must have a real need and 
must already be working before real 
consideration is given. "You demon- 
strate you're doing your part, and we'll 
work out a program." says Norton. 

Loans are obtained by borrowing 
money from the federal government 
through the school or by borrowing 
from a bank. Most loans are guaran- 
teed by state agencies. In a Parent- 
Plus Loan, parents may borrow up to 
$4,000 a year to a limit of $20,000. 
Beginning times for paying back the 
loans vary anywhere from 60 days to 
nine months after graduation or when 
Ihe student drops below a half-time 
enrollment status. 

Through the Work-Study Program. 
the govemment pays for most of Ihe 

for by the employer. Information on 
who is eligible for the program is 
available at Wright Hall. 

Pamphlets, applications, and more 
details about any of these programs are 
available at the Financial Aid office.

cause us to be lost rather than saved. 
We must remember that God uses 
ministers as tools lo reach his people 
through the Bible, the Spirit of Proph- 
ecy, prayer, and most of all the Holy 
Spirit. Pasiorsdon't have the right to 
preach the way they want to. "Preach 
the Word."

Dear Editor, 
In converse 
S.C as well as in articles and 
odiiorials appearing in the Accent, I 
frequently note the use of the word 
"arbitrary" in referring to the rules 
and regulations ai S.C. I have also 
noted that if one tries to discuss the 
rules and regulations with faculty and 
US of moral 

and regulations we endure are in fact 
arbitrary. The reason. I believe, for 
discomfiture at the mention of prin- 
ciple is that if we try to understand 
; rule or regulation in terms of 


evaluate all rules and regulati 
such manner. No one in authority 
here at S.C. wants to do that because 
ihey very well know, though il may 
be heaiedly denied, that Biblical and 
Spirit of Prophecy principles play a 
very small role in determining 
today's S.C. rules and regulations. 

Many self-supporting schools 
claim to carefully follow Spirit of 
Prophecy counsel and thus make life 
dull and monotonous in everything 

Conference and union schools tend to 
believe that if they are going to 
recruit and hold energetic, up-beat 
and vibrantly alive young people Ihey 
must minimize Ellen White's counsel 
on lifestyle in particular. In the view 
of this writer, both positions en- 
Several faculty members have told 

me that orgamzauons and institulioni 
have a right to make whatever rules they 
wish even if the rules are arbiliary. This 
may be true for worldly institutions, but 
I do not believe it is true for institutions 
claiming God as the head. Procedural 
rules and regulations established for the 
sake of convenience may be arbitrary. 
But where there is a moral issue 
involved the rules must be arbiuary. 
Thisisthestuffof which tyrannies and 
despotisms are founded. It reminds one 
of nation-slates in which constitutions 
are frequently suspended, the press 
censored, and basic human rights 
routinely violated. When everything is 
arbitrary there is no safety at all excepi 
where God mandates special interven- 
tion. God does not govern this way. I 
do not believe He wants His earthly 
institutions governed this way. 

I want those reading this to know thai 
I appreciate the candor and honesty of 
the faculty and administration of S.C. I 
am only one Seventh-Day Adventisl. 
However, my perspective on much of 
what is being done at S.C and espe- 
cially the way it is being done is clearly 
different from that of the administraiion 
and much of the faculty. I am as 
concerned as anyone to have the college 
project a positive and favorable image to 
the constituency and the non-Adventisi

with image that I want to distort in my 
own thinking, and that of others, the

Engineering and Technology 
club formed to encourage and 
assist students in those fields 

By Lisa Rosaasen 

Brian Hartman, sophomore engi- 
neering major, has formed an Engi- 
neering and Technology club to assist, 
encourage, and involve engineering/ 
technology majors. "As a freshman, 1 
found that ihe engineering/technology 

offer ihem beneficial activities," said 

The club's first activity was a tour of 
the campus telephone and computer 
facilities on March 27, Four engineer- 
ing majors attended along with Mr. 
John Durichek, chairman of the 
technology department. 

Their second meeting was a dcpari- 
menial chapel on Aprils. Bill Belles, 
interstate architect and president of 
Kirkman and Belles Architects in 
Cleveland, was the guest speaker. 

He addressed the importance of the 
relationship between engineers and 
architects. In his discussion. Belles 
strcs.sed that engineering majors 
shouldn't let the difficult math courts 
discourage them from pursuing the 
field of engineering. He said the 
engineering work field is different 
from the required engineering educa- 

Twenty-five students, mostly engi- 
neering majors, attended the meeting. 

Belles is doing architectural work for 
Southern College, designing a pro- 
posed science complex and redesigning 
I>anieU's Hall. 

A third tentative activity, that 
Hartman has planned for this year, is a 

field trip to a local compact disc plant 
Although this school year is almost 
over, the club chose officers to finish 
the year. Hartman was elected as 
acting president Bill Fentress, a 
sophomore engmeering major is acting 
secretary-treasurer, and Mr. Durichek 

Hartman said officers for next year 
could have been chosen this year, but 
since the engineering major spends 
only two years at Southern, he wanted 
to give the freshmen an opportunity to 
be officers as well. 

Although Hartman and Fentress will 
be transferring to Walla Walla college 
next year to complete their degrees, he

math department, but his is not a

Duricheck said he will encourage the 

club ic 

a strong student leader that will take 
care of most of the planning. 

Some of Ihe activities Hartman 
would like to sec offered next year are 
a field trip to a Lockheed airplane 
plant, a field hip to a TVA electrical 
plant and control center in Chicka- 
mauga, and an egg -drop contest, 

Hartman 's goals for the remainder of 
Uiis year and for the club in the future 
are to provide a support group, to 
provide special diversions and learning 
experiences, to provide a practical 
organization that will balance the 
theoretical math and physics clubs, and 
to provide field trips that will give 
engineering students a view of the 
prospective woric environment as well 
as local contacts. He also plans to

Thatcher residents 
opposed to

said DeliKe Dent, soptiomore in 
Thatclier Hall where controversy 
over placement of surveillance 
cameras in hallways is causing 

The cameras were a suggestion 
from Dean Lydia Rose after seeing a 
similar security system at Pacific 
Union College. The proposal was 
added lo the departmental "wish list" 
and submined to McKee Baking Co. 
who donated funds necessary to 
purchase the cameras, said Rose.

Residents of Thatcher have mixe 
opinions about the cameras being 
placed in (heir dorni. Sophomore. 
Karen Crismond, says she feels it 
wouldn't be so much an invasion o 
privacy if the cameras were placed 
only at entrance ways. "It's a good 
security device, but I feel funny 
about having a camera m the hall oi 
my home," Some, like sophomore 
Lisa Rosaasen, feel that there are 
other areas on campus that need 
anenlion. "The walkfrom Brock'

promenade is dimly lit and defmiiely 
deserves priority," said Rosaasen.

no need before, why now? ■'Our

the purpose," said sophomore.

can't see the problem. 

According lo Dean Rose there are 
problems. There has been vandalism 
on several occasions by academy age 
boys who enter the doim through the 
side door used by the janitors. Rose 
says the cameras would eliminate this 
problem and others such as unauthor-

from laundry rooms. 

Christian literature conference held here 

By Can Cruze 

The Souiheastem Regional Meeting 
of ihe Conference on Christianity and 
Literature took place at Southern 
College April 5-7. 

Seventy people representing thirty 
colleges and universities and fifteen 
states took part in the conference, 
which examines what relationships 
exist between Christianity and litera- 

The conference involved a keynote 
address, the reading of papers on 
Christianity and literature, responses to 

by Judy Glass, a performance by Ihe 
Destiny Drama Company, and a dinnt 
at President Don Sahly's home. 

According to Dr. Dave Smith, who 
served as the program chair, the 
participants expressed how beautiful 
the campus was and how friendly the 
Southern College students were to 
them. "The conference went very 
well, and everyone enjoyed iL There 
were good, quality papers read and 
some fine Christian fellowship." said 

The keynote address speaker was 
Professor Leland Ryken from Wheaton Universi^ 
College in Illinois. Ryken received his 

Ph.D. from the University 
1968, focusing on the 
English Renaissance, 

The paper voted most outstanding 
was John Zubizarreta's "T.S. Eliot and 
the Gospel of St. John." He is from 
Columbia college, and his was the last 
paper to be read at the conference. 

There were some students participat- 
ing from the area including students 
from Lee College, Bryan College, and 
Covenant College.

Angels watching 
over us daily 

By Andy Nash 

As typical Adveniisi children, my 
younger sister, Angela, and I were 
once avid listeners lo the "Your Story 
Hour" tape coiiection — with Aunt Sue 
and Uncle Dan. 

The sloiy that peaked our interest 
more than any other was one entitled, 
"Strangers in the Nighl." In it, two 
ihildren left alone in their home are 
visited by a "mean man" and later, a 
"nice inan" (as we called them). The 
nice man, exhibiting tremendous 
strength, protected the children from 
the robber. Laterlhatevening. he went 
to he down in the guest room and 
somehow disappeared without leavmg 
any tracks in the snow. "...For some 
people have enienained angels without 
knowing it," Aunt Sue explained. This 
always fascinated us! 

concept Angels are mentioned first in 
Genesis 3:27, when God placed Ihem 
at the gates of the Garden of Eden to 
keep sin out and to guard the Tree of 
Life. In fact, the Bible speaks of 
angels over three hundred times. Ellen 
White adds that angels were respon- 
sible for guiding the animals into the 
ark and for watching over the infant 
Moses in the bullnishes. H.M.S. 
Richards says, "The scriptures lell us 
more about angels than about baptism, 
the Lord's Supper, the Sabbath, ...the 

Second Advent!" With all this biblical 
publicity, angels must be a force in our 
world today as well. 

written on ihe occult, the Devil, and 
demons, people are frequently drawn 
away from the study of the Lord and 
His messengers, states Billy Graham. 
This sometimes is where misconcep- 
tions of angels begin. Over the years, 
I've heard angels described as passive 
spirits that make music with their 
haips as they float through the clouds. 
This just isn't accurate! 

When invited into our lives, angels 
protect, befriend, and enhghten us 
through the saving power of Jesus 
Christ. And Ihey love doing it! 

"Through the ministry of angels. 

Richards. And J.R.Williams tells us, 
"That angels are present with us for 
protection and deliverance is a 
beautiful truth of the Bible..." Most 
sources convey the fact that these 
celestial beings are here lo help. 
However, before the angels of 

Heaven can use their incredible 

welcomed. When we pray and ask for 
God's assistance, it gives Him justifi- 
cation in helping us. Often this is done 
through His angels. 

And what powers they have! Ellen 
White tells us that when Jesus was 
being mocked and beaten before His 
crucifixion, the angels of Heaven were 
watching in honor. They wanted to 
intercede, but were not allowed. 'The 
weakest angel could have caused that 
mocking throng to fail powerless, and 
could have delivered Jesus." 

The angels of the Lord are anxious

When that word comes, the angels 
excitedly rush to "encamp around 
those who serve Him" (Psalms 34:7). 

While angels have the power to 
guide and protect us from the evil 
demons of Satan, we have something 
that the angels can only marvel over — 
redemption. At one point in the novel 
Piercine the Darkness , by Frank E. 
Peretli. the angels of God are in a park 
with a young girl named Sally Roe 
who is about lo accept Jesus Christ 
into her life. The kneeling angels 
encircle Sally, their heads bowed, their 
swords lying in the grass like "spokes

angelic celebrations such as this take 
place when a person comes to Christ. 
Ellen While notes that "Every true 
confession glorifies Him, and causes 
the angels to break forth into singing." 
And, according to Graham, "Angels 
set all the bells of Heaven in motion

For some reason, the angels of God 
love us. Ellen While informs us that 
when Jesus told the angels of His plan 
to come 10 Earth to save the sinners, 
the angels were shocked and greatly 
saddened by the announcement. "The 
angels prostrated themselves at the feet 
of their Commander, and offered to

beauty of the campus, the food, and 
the young people, especially the 
Destiny members. 

A few students from Southern 
College responded to Destiny's 
performance by saying: 

"David Demon and company did 
an excellent job in writing the skit. 
It made me think about how Jesus 
suffered and died for me," staled 
freshman nursing major, Carol 
Shaw. "Also how we treat others 
and how we want to be ffeated as 
human beings. The Destiny Drama 
Club really did an excellent job on 
action and performance." Carol 
continued. "My parents were here, 
and they told me after the program 
how impressed they were with the 
whole thing." 

"I thought it was very good," 
commented Brenda Caldwell, fresh- 
man elementary education major, 
"It was funny, but serious as it 
showed how Jesus would have been 
treated if he were on Earth today. 
Very creative work!" 

"I thought that it was an excellent 
description of what it would be like 
if Christ came today," stated 
freshman auto body repair major, 
Russell Haveman. "I also thought 
that it was the best acting I have ever 

with the Savior," says Richards. 

For now. though. 'He will give His 
angels charge of you. to guard you in 
all your ways" (Psalms 91 : 1 1 ), a text 
frequently repeated by young children, 

God are especially proud to be 
standing at our sides when these 
beautiful words are spoken. 

For the 
health of it 

By Darlene Almeda, R.N. 

Q: During the Health Espo 90 held 
in the Student Center, I found out my 
cholesterol was a little higher than it 
should be. .What suggestions do you 
have for me? 

A: First of all you need to look at 
your diet. Saturated fats must be 
reduced. These are found in all animal 
products starting with meat itself, eggs, 
whole milk products, yogurt, and 
cheese. Also tropical oils such as 
coconut and palm oils are saturated — 

cookies, crackers, and cereals. Try to 
increase your intake of soluble fiber 
such as oat bran, psyllium, and beans 

. Cardio 

Next consider e 
cular exercise, including walking, will 
help increase your HDL (High Density 
Lipoprotein) also known as the "good" 
cholesterol. HDL helps carry back to 
the liver excess LDL (Low Density 
Lipoprotein) and keeps it from 
attaching to the walls of the arteries 
which will eventually narrow due to 
the excess plaque and debris. 

According to B. Rifkind, a choles- 
terol researcher at one of the National 
Institutes of Healdi, a cholesterol level 
of 200 is a feasible goal for most 

decrease your risks [of hean disease). 
you'd have to bring down your level 
well below 140,

ScanTron tips that 
may improve your 
final exam scores 

By Lisa Rosaasen 

With lest week approaehing. mosi 
stucienis are looking for ways lo gci the 
best possible grades on lesls. Surpris- 
ingly, one of the simplesi solutions and 
one of the most effective tools costs 
only twenty-two cents. 

Mary final tests, panicularly those 
given to large classes, require students 
to mark their answers on special sheeb 
which are read by a machine. This 

light, responding only lo infrared light. 
In order for a mark to be read, ii has lo 
have the right amount of carbon in it. 
The proper instrument lor this is a 
#2 pencil. Mr. John Beckett, director 
of Compuier Services emphasized thai 
auiomaiic "clicker" pencils should noi 

used because some of ihem will 
aciually make marks that are com- 
pletely invisible to the machine." said 

Compuier Services had its ovm 
printer manufacture test forms for use 
with their ScanTron machme. Re- 
cently, a ScanTron salesperson on 
campus claimed that forms printed by 

produce acceptable err 
So Computer Services tested its 

forms made and sold by ScanTron, 
They processed 25 of each kind of 
sheet, with all 200 possible answers 
filled in. Both sets were graded 10

ScanTron had an 

ilikely tc 

and the home-made sheet had an error 
rate of 5%. 

Mr. Beckett's advice to students wa.s 
to use only a good old wooden pencil 
to upgrade your grades. His sugges- 
tion to the administration was that 
although the present answer sheet 
scored accepubly, given the moderate 
increase in cost, computer services 
should go back to ScanTron forms 
when the current slock is used.
