$1 Million Organ 
Damaged in Storm 

By Andrea Nklwlson 

The Anton Heiller Memorial Organ, housed in ihe 
Collegedale Church, recently suffered $126,000 in 
damages during a violent storm that swept through 
Collegedale about 2:30 p.m. Saturday. August 4. 

Strong winds removed 75 percent of the church's 
roof, exposing the interior to rain and hail, 
according to associate pastor Rolund Ruff. Water 
came through the ceiling, drenching the carpet, 
pew pads, and the pipe organ. 

Communiiy firefighters rushed to provide emer- 
gency lighting in the absence of electricity, while 
church members, college students, and local resi- 
dents scrambled to clean up the sanctuaiy and dry 
off the pipe organ. Communion pans and towels 
were used to collect dripping rain and soak up 
water. Workers outside rallied to cover the roof 
with plastic tarp to prevent the entrance of more 

"The organ stood up as best as it possibly could 
have under the circumstances," said Judy Glass. 
professor of organ at Southern College. 

Local organ buildere from Richards, Fowkes & 
Company were called in to assess the damage and 
immediately began disasembling pipes that were 
sitting in water. 

"It was pretty well baptized from stem to stem 
when we got there," said Bruce Fowkes, organ 
builder. "People were already there trying to get 
water out of the organ and gel plastic over it" 

Acconding to Fowkes, it was the fwompt action 
of everyone involved that saved the organ from 
fiirther damage. "Water is what we fear the most, 
as it destroys most organs." he said. "It could have 
been much worse." 

'If this had been an electric pipe organ, it would 
have been totally destroyed," said Glass. "Because

Study Tour Gets Glimpse 
of the World

Through the small window 

I could see darkness with 
puffs of grey clouds speeding 
by. The plane was quickly 
descending and our ears 
as well as our hearts 
were popping. After about 

I I hours in the plane, 
we longed to see land. 
Suddenly, a burst of sun 
came through. The wheels 
of the plane bumped and 
screeched to a halt, and 
everyone leaped out of 
his seat. We were finally 
in Europe!

and touching lives throughout the 
Russian cities. 

Several students offered to share 
their experiences.

Glass explained that the organ will 
have to be disassembled and every 
pipe cleaned and retuned. Some of the 
seals and leather pieces must be 
replaced as well as pmrtions of the 
gold leaf on the keys and the wind

seven months to complete 

The thmgs that make the organ 
spectacular and really unique will 
have to be replaced, said Glass 'When

Enrollment Up for Fourth ^^7 ^fo^- 
Consecutive Year 

By Tammy Menizel 
Enrollment at Southern 
College is up for the 
fourth consecutive year. 

According to Mary Elam, 
director of records, when 
the last applicant registered 
on August 28, student 
enrollment had increased 
by 30 over last year, 
bringing the overall total 
to 1.327. 

The increase is exciting 
and a surprise to the 
administration, who were 
anticipating a drop in 
enrollment for the first 
time in three years. 

"The status was harder 
to predict than in previous 
years," said Mrs. Elam. 
"The birth rate has dipped,

When asked about reasons 
for the anticipated decline 

of students, Dr. Donald 
Sahly, S.C. president, credited 
it to the smaller number 
of seniors graduating 
from academies in the 
Southern Union. "This 

of our students so we 
were expecting to feel 
a pinch," he said. 

Other reasons cited 
included the non-defmeable 
number of students entering 
from outside the union, 

underway on adventists 
college campuses aimed 
at keeping their students 
within the union. 

"The real gain came 
from the number of returning 
students," said Sahly. 
More students returned 
than in past years. "This 
says to us that more 
students are satisfied,"

S.A. Should 
Spend Wisely 

It is always good for an organiza- 
lion lo expand and grow, especially 
one like our Student Association. But 
we feel this year's S.A. executive 
officers have the wrong ideas of 
expansion, as the many funds needed 
lo make these ideas a reality may be 
"skimmed" from our student publi- 
cations in crippling amounts. At 
least that's the plan. Furthermore, 
the Soulliem Accent sees no need for 
these proposed expansions right now. 

Namely, it is the goal of this year's 
S.A. lo expand the Student Associa- 
tion's public relations department 
with a paid director and staff. how- 
ever, many would agree that S.A. 
publicity in previous years under one 
person has been adequate, if not out- 
standing. It is doubtful ihal any of us 
missed an activity without knowing 
about it As far as the work is con- 
cemed, what more is there for a PR 
pereon lo do other than produce post- 
ers and flyeis? Certainly not enough 
to warrant an entire staff. 

Seamdiy, the SA has created the 
paid office of computer analyst The 
computer analyst will maintain ihe 
small amount of equipment in ihe SA 
office, do "research" on any needed 
equipmenu and be in charge of the 
Wallside Joumal in the cafe. In our 
opinion, this is a superfluous office.

12 Hours at 
the Fair 

For nearly 12 houis the 
three friends had been having 
a blast at the fair. By 
common agreement they 
had separated shortly af- 
ter noon, and each had fol- 
lowed his own program. 
Now, at 10 minutes before 
midnight, they were mak- 
ing their way to the pre- 
arranged spot by the water 
fountain at the southern 

Jim arrived first He 
was the sociable kind of 
fellow — a typical extrovert, 
and a little vain, perhaps. 
He had seen a dozen friends 
and relished every minute 
he spent with them. Mi- 
chael arrived next He was 
the action oriented type — 
almost restless in his eagerness 
to fill every minute of his 
day with some fija He had 
nm an almost non-stop maialhon 
that included every ride in 
the fair. 

As Jim and Michael met 
by the fountain, they com- 
pared what they had done 
during the day. Each de- 
cided his program was best. 
They could not imagine anything 
they could have done dif- 
ferently to get more for 
their money. 

TTiese percqjtions changed 
rather drastically, how- 
ever, when Freddy arrived 
and informed them he had 
won the grand prize. He 
had ridden his favorite rides 
and seen the better shows. 
He planned his activities 
so that every hour he could 
validate his ticket at the 
specified places to make 
sure he would qualify for 
the drawing. The grand 
prize was his first prior- 
ity, and he was not about to 
let a ride or a show— or 

with friends — cheat him out 
of winning it 

Jim and Michael had an

This parable illustrates 
the life of each student at 
Souihem College. Although 
they have many things in 
common, neither their present 
experience nor their fu- 
ture life will be the same. 
Some will have a terrific 
time here. They will enjoy 
hours of socializing with 
friends. They will get a lot 
of ego-satisfaction out of

honors. After four years of 
considerable effort, they 
will have a good profes-

of living on Earfli very enjoyable- 
Only some, and unfortu-

will give them access to

actually enjoys the best of 
both the present and the

solid sense of identity and 
a healthy self-concept The 
knowledge of being chil- 
dren of God through faith 
in Jesus Christ frees them 
of the need to rely on triv-

enjoy life to the fullest. 
Their standing with God 
through Christ gives them 
a joy that runs deep, and 
this joy is not dependent 
on the shallow entertain- 
ment and fleeting pleas- 
ures this worid provides. 

Since tlus gnaup enjoys 
the best of both worlds, 
ftie natural question is, why 
does the majority not be- 
long to it? Is it that God 
has made provision for the 
salvation of only some? 
Definitely not, because the 
door of heaven has the shape 
of a cross — Calvary's cross — 
it is open to all. Instead, 
the reason lies in the fact 
that the majority refuses 
to choose the way of the 
cross. Some of them sim- 
ply don't care to enter; 
others consider the price 
too high — following Jesus 
means one cannot follow 
someone else, and they'd 
rather serve self or an- 
other master. Still others 
are attempting to create 
their own way, to open a 
different door. 

The Bible presents this 
in direct and simple terms. 
Jesus is "the way, the truth, 
and the life." There simply 
"is no other name under 
heaven given to men by 
which we must be saved. 
God has given us eternal 
life, and this life is in his 
Son. He who has the Son 
has life; he who does 
have the Son of God does 
not have life."^ In view 
this awesome reality,

Choir's Russian Tour 
Guide Visits S.C. 

By Jennifer Hulse 

Sitting at a picnic table on 
upper campus, Helen Sorokina 
repeatedly smooths back an errant 
lock of reddish-blond hair. Does 
she like the United States? "It's 
very difficult to say. My German 
friends said 'three days will be 
enough,' but I think it's better to 
be here longer. I have no time!

Helen's expectations of the 
United Slates were naturally based 
upon American visitors to the 
Soviet Union. She said the U.S. is 
pretty much what she expected.

resting her chin against her palm, 
she says softly, "for me. it's 
very special, and I like it, no 
fences. This idea is very good." 

After visiring a class at Southern, 
Helen said "you have an odd educational 
system. It is difficult to compare 
to Russian universities, but you 
have a very good college, and a 
very good choir." 

University students in the Soviet

"In their spare time, students in

Helen majored in engineering

to the picnic table, she laughs.

we couldn't face the day- 
at least not without fear. 
Soon, I was heading towards 
my classroom. All around

"Yes, time to start school," 
I replied. 

The morning wore on and 
my beloved fifth graders 
began to help me practice 
my patience. In science I 
found 26 confused faces 
staring al me as I tried to 
explain the process of de- 
salination. In spelling, 1

floating through my mind. 

"How could time go by so

monkey-bars as the jail to 
lock up all boy prisonos I 
acquired in the girls-chase-

of vogue?" 

Lunch and recess were 
over. Back to the class- 

We all struggled with

screaming out my lecture 
about the countries that 
formed the Axis powers

I had another war going on

iDora Yolanda and Danny 
were viciously snapping 
each other with mbber bands. 
Before I could interrupt 
them, Yolanda socked him 
good. I had to give her 
credit She had great fonm-

was beside the point. I 
took them both aside. Some-

Fuially, the last class of

asked if there is any

like to have the right to 
my own opinion. The 
communist party says 
everybody should think 
like the party says, but 
everybody has their own 
opinion. I, too, have my 
own opinion." Helen said 
the Soviet Union contains 
so many different opinions 
and there are "many, 
many newspapers of different 
political parties," many 
of which shereads consistently . 
"In the Soviet Union, 

the government determines 
how much I can buy, and 
I don't like it," she says, 
then shakes her head 
side to side slowly and 
forces out a loud sigh. 
"In your country also, 
the government decides 
everything, but probably 
your government makes 
decisions better sometimes." 
She leans in close again 
and lets out a hearty 
laugh, which qiuckly disappears. 

"Our salary is not 
big. We must give most 
to the government, and 
the government distributes 
it itself. Many people 
say they want to pay 
for things themselves, 
but this won't happen

In the Soviet Union, 
each person is guaranteed 
to have a job after theb

institutes, firms andcompanies 
tell how many students 
they want, and students 
can choose them. The 
student makes the decision 
first. It is possible for 
a person to make a second 
choice, and say 'this job 
is not for me,' during 
the first three years," 
Helen said. 

As she walks along 
the sidewalk toward Wright 
Hall, Helen is pointing 
at trees, at bushes, and 
at bugs. "What is the 
name of that tree? I 
want to learn the names," 
and "That thing flying. 
What kind of insect is 
it? Very interesting." 

Helen's philosophy and 
final advice to Southern 
College students is simple.

Triathlon Begins 
With a Ba ng 

By Tanya Johnson 

A lazy sun peaked above the rolling, green 
hills. The heat's breath pushed away a thick 
blanket of fog. In the wet valley below, over 
a hundred sleek bodies paused at the mouth of 
the steamy lake, their muscles taut. Bang! A 
starting gun splits the silence and the Sixth 
Annual Southern College Triathlon began at 8 
a.m. sharp. This year's triathlon was held in 
Cohutta Springs Camp, and 1 17 participants 
came out to enjoy the competition. 

The half mile swim took place in the Cohutta

The decision v 

vas made to

just north of Chattanooga. 
Fund raising for the proj- 
ect began in October of 1987 
and has continued almost 
three years, except for a 
small break 
of 1988 du( 
mit. However, with permit 

hand, workers have 
begun clearing the building 
site, according to Doug Wal- 

ter, general manager of WSMC. 
The building permit gives 
workers 18 months to com- 
plete the project, starting 
from last May 1 . 

"I'm real optimistic that 
we'll complete the project 
before the deadline," said 

However, he said more funds 
will be needed to be able to 
meet the $300,000 cost of the 
project. Until those funds 
come in, the work cannot be 
finished, he said. So far, the 
available money has come from 
local corporations, founda- 
tions, and various individuals. 

"The people of Chattanooga 
have been wanting a clear 
signal for a long time. This 
project has been in the works 
for 10 years, and I'm happy to 
see it being realized," said

Physics Department 
Acquires Video Series 

A NEW educational tool 
has been added to SC's 
physics department. A 
52-part series entitled 



cal Un

chased by the physics 
department and McKee 

The department has 
been trying to acquire 
these video's for nearly 
four years. The programs, 
produced by the Califor- 
nia Institute of Technol- 
ogy with funding by the 
Annenberg PCB Project, 
are designed for the. pur- 
pose of taking a physics 
class over the television 
using terms and symbols 
that are easy to under- 

stand. The first half of 
the series had a produc- 
tion cost of $1 million. 

Sharon Wright, an edu- 
cation major, said, "They 
were well put together 
and informative." 

Dr. Ray Hefferlin, chair- 
man of the physics de- 
partment, is excited about 
the new series and the 
potential they have in 
giving a better under- 
standing of physics. 
"They are better than

A TUTORING program

The tutors, which have 
had at least one class in 
beginning computer and 
physics, are "not there to 
give answers, but to lend 
judicious hints and give 
insights to the fundamen-

Hanson. Although the 
tutors have other respon-

turn to the teachers

The main goal of the

students should come

Is Applause the 
New Style of Amen? 



A friend of mine related an expe- 
rience to me. He had always en- 
joyed the music of the Imperials, a 
contemporary Christian group. They 
came to U.T.C. Arena a few years 
ago, and he attended. The atmos- 
phere hardly resembled that of 
worship or praise to God. The 
performers emphasized long, loud 
guitar rifts, and proclaimed they 
were groovin' for the Lord. One 
musician even turned to shake for 
the audience the way a rock artist 
would. Ladies dressed in less than 
conservative attire pushed and 
screamed their way to the foot of 
the stage. I also like the Imperi- 
als, but I wondered how I would 
have felt in that situation. Then I 
thought about worship on our 

During Collegiate Commitment 
Weekend, the vespers special music 
was given by a talented musician 
who went through his piece with 
great expression. I enjoyed sing- 
ing the words to "My Tribute" in 
my head as he played. When done 
the congregation broke into thun- 
derous applause. The pianist turned 
and bowed, accepting the praise 
for his work. 

Applause seems to have become 
the norm in our college community. 

1 don't understand why there are 
iplaints about dormitory park- 
ing lot spaces. It has seemed to 
idents of Thatcher 
and Talge Hall were parking in 
faculty lots! 

May 1 suggest a solution? The 
other night while I was at Wal 
Marl, I mentioned to the clerk that 
I dreaded having to go back out into 
the parking lot because it was 
raining heavily. She replied, "Do 
you know where they make us 
park?" Her gesture indicated some 
place halfway to Cleveland. It's 
true. Most businesses show their 

giving these most important people 
preferred parking. 

I'm all for SC imposing behav- 
ioral requirements on students if 
those requirements are stated to 
have some relationship to the 
educational mission or operational 
efficiency of the college. But the 
present parking assignments seem 
to me a needless thorn in the side 
of students. If there is some rea- 
son to make students park farther 

from their da; 

that the same therapy would be 
appropriate for faculty members. 
The administration's attention to 
there is a need to avoid the health 

oriented culture. 

I have a simple suggestion: With 

departments serving the public and 
faculty who are disabled or whose 
jobs call for them to be in and out 
of their parking spaces many times 
each day - let's have open parking 
on the entire campus. 

If they were freed of the chore 
of policing student parking regula- 
tions, our Campus Safety people 
could spend more time on the 
mission their department name im- 
plies. And we might have the 
courage to let them tow cars which 
are parked in the wrong places. 

I've heard that the problem with 
this plan is that the campus wasn't 
designed for such an arrangement. 
If this is true, then why do I al- 
ways see more Thatcher cars in 
the lot nearest my office than 
faculty cars? -John Beckett 

Whether for a well-done musical 
selection or an anecdote from the 
speaker, we react in this manner. 
Worship to God should be a joint 
activity between congregation and 
those on the platfonn. I believe in 
enjoying our religion and relation- 
ship with God. However, I also 
believe God commands and deserves 
respect, especially in His house. 
Ellen White, in Steps to Christ, 
tells us that Jesus was deeply se- 
rious, but never gloomy or morose. 
We should rejoice in our faith, and 
feel comfortable in our worship 
responses. The ease with which 

some of us applaud at the speaker's 
humor resembles that of a comedy 
club. Is applause the new style of 
amen? Can you see the Israelites 
responding in that way in their 

We need to ask ourselves if our 
applause is reverent. Are we prais- 
ing God or the performance? Are 
we in church or at U.T.C. Arena? 
More thought needs to be put into 
the way we treat God, especially 
in His house.

come to believe that un- 
restricted travel within 
our own country and vir- 
tually unrestricted travel 
to foreign such, we some- 
times fail to remember 
that widespread travel at 
home and abroad is a 
privilege enjoyed by but a 
few citizens of most 
other countries. 

Southern College stu- 
dents have for a number 
of years taken advantage 
of this privilege by in- 
cluding travel as an inte- 
gral part of their educa- 
tion. Music and history 

and study abroad pro- 
grams are some of the 
avenues students pursue 
to gain a broader under- 
standing of people and the 
world in which they live. 
It is with these ideas 
in mind that I have had 
the opportunity to travel

em College choral groups.

press has reinforced this 
concept in our minds as 
we have viewed in news- 
papers and on TV the for- 
tress walls of the Krem-

people standing in lines 
for everything from food 
to a visit to Lenin's tomb. 
It was with these vi- 
sions in my mind that I 
first travelled to the 
USSR. I was not disap- 
pointed -the Kremlin 
walls were formidable 
and people had to stand in 
lines for everything. In 
addition I found that be- 

strictions we could not 
perform sacred music 
unless it was considered 
American folk music. 
Also, visits with Sev- 
enth-day Adventist 
church members were 
discouraged (forbidden

because of the political 
problems it would cause 
for them. And finally, my 
hotel room was bugged 
and we were followed 
everywhere we went. 
Every minute of the day 
and night seemed to be 
programmed for us and to 
be filled with political 
propaganda. It did not

learn the meaning of re-

Why, then, have you

question I have been asked 
most frequently. My re-

We Americans who are, 
because of our heritage, 
privileged to travel and 
have such an abundance of 
things can learn from 
those who have only love 
to give. 

In addition I have had 
the privilege of seeing 
first hand vast changes 
in this world super power. 
It is still true that the 
Kremlin walls are formi- 
dable and that people have 
to stand in their "hated" 
lines. But the perform- 

ance of sacred music has 
gone from tolerated in 
1987 to encouraged in 
1990. Performances in 

by the government in 1987 
and in 1990 were arranged 
by the church. Inter- 
change with church mem- 
bers has progressed from 
cautious in 1987 to open 
and free in 1990. Finally, 
the feeling of being fol- 
lowed and force-fed

In 1982, I observed the 
people of the USSR as 
being lulled by a blind 
confidence in their com- 
mitment to the state. By 
1987 attitudes were 
"Perestroika and 

glasnost." The feeling of 
the people was exhilarat- 
ing. Unfortunately, in 
1990 the exhilaration of 
the people had changed to 
despair and disillusion- 
ment. Food and 

existent, crime has in- 
creased, the black mar- 
ket flourishes, and a fear 
of a return to some form 
of Stalinism is often 

One thing that through 
the years has not changed 
is the warmth and friend- 
liness of the people. They

give you their love. 

How Your S.A. is Expanding 

IT IS important for 
every organization to 
grow in order to remain 
up-to-date and better 
capable or providing serv- 
ices to its members, and 
that is exactly what this 
year's Student Associa- 
tion has done. As I came 
into office last year, I 



was in and made a list of 
priorities I felt were es- 
sential to making this a 

zation. Behind last year's 
president Craig Lastine, 
the S.A. grew, but there 
were loose ends and fur- 
ther expansion that 

By Woody While. SA. President 
needed to be incorporated, 
and with the guidance of 
K.R. Davis, Darin Stewart, 
and others, I began to do 
just that. 

The first thing we rec- 
ognized was the need for 
a more efficient and reli- 
able public relations de- 
partment. The success of 
this department is essen- 
tial to the success of the 
entire S.A. Not only did 
we increase the budget 
for this department, but 
we also increased the 
personnel by three so the 
PR director can have a re- 
liable staff. Now the PR 
department is more ca- 

pable of informing stu- 
dents of S.A. activities. 

Not only was the PR 
department expanded, but 
the Southern Accent, as 
well. We have bought an 
Apple Macintosh computer 
that will benefit the stu- 
dent paper in several ar- 

As mentioned earlier, 
Craig Lastine expanded 
the S.A. significantly by 
purchasing a number of 
computer products, both 
hardware and software. It 
greatly benefited the S.A. 




professionalism t 
projects. But this 

fit did not come without 
problems. We created the 
office of computer ana- 
lyst to correct these 
problems. Among the 

many responsibilities 

this officer has are: 1) 
repairing or arranging for 
repair of all computers 
owned by the S.A., 2) to 
keep the S.A. current in 
the purchase of software, 
3) to maintain an inven- 
tory of software and 
hardware for insurance 
purposes, and 4) to train 
the computer "analyst for 
next year. The long-term 
benefit of the S.A. was 
our main priority in cre- 
ating this office. Next 
year, when a new officer

HE'S 6'6", 220 pounds, and he's 
only three years old. That's right. 
Three years ago, Gerald Wilkens 
gave his heart to God. In his eyes, 
that's when life began. 

In his quest to become a better 
athlete, Gerald met Randy Webb, a 
Seventh-day Adventist fitness 
trainer. Through their 
Gerald learned the val

Gerald spoke of in Thursday's as- 
sembly. However, he also found 
out thai these three things will 
not complete a person. After Ger- 
ald had applied the counsels of a 
clean lifestyle. Randy introduced 
Gerald to God. Gerald began at- 
tending church and soon after found 
the missing element in his life. 

Gerald believes in a close con- 
nection of the mind, body, and 
spirit. As a Christian, he feels 
that none of these areas should be

his trainer worked to develop: 
cardiovascular, strength, and flexi- 
bility. Randy admits he is no bas- 
ketball expert, but says Gerald, he 
knows movement. He knows how 
to get the weapon (ball) to the 
target (the hoop) through move- 
ment (player). Gerald works out 
twice a day to maximize his abili- 
ties. "It takes a lot of hard work. 
I wasn't born with natural abili- 
ties like my brother Dominique." 

In addition to performance-based 
training, Gerald pays close atten- 
tion to what goes into his body. 
Through Randy, Gerald learned the 
value of an Adventist diet. Gerald 
soon cut out red meats, alcohol, 
and especially McDonald's "Big profound effect 
Macs." He even makes regular had more energy and

S.C. Music Groups to Tour 
Mexico and Spain 

' Andrew C. Nash 

FOR THE first time, both the 
Southern College Concert Band and 
Symphony Orchestra are scheduled 
for major tours in the same year: 
this year. 

The band, under the direction of 
Patricia Silver, will be traveling 
to Mexico City, Acapulco, and the 
University of Montemorelos over 
Spring Break. 

"I've aJways wanted to see Mex- 
ico," said freshman baritone player 
Chris Carlson. 

The band's last tour to the Pa- 
cific Northwest took place three 
years ago. 

According to Silver, lour plans 
include visiting Cortez's original 
place, the Hanging Gardens, and the 

may marketplaces of Mexico City. 

Meanwhile, Mr. Orlo Gilbert and 
his well-traveled symphony or- 
chestra have plans to visit Spain 
following graduation. 

While past orchestral tours in- 
clude Greece, Australia, the Ori- 
ent, Gilbert is excited about Spain. 
"We'll be working with other youth 
orchestras over there," stated 

Through the foreign youth ex- 
change program, sponsored by the 
government of Spain and in coop- 
eration with Mid-America, the SC 
orchestra was specially invited. 

"I can't wait to get there!" said 
sophomore Sherrie Piatt. 

CABL Week Puts 
Variety in Life 

FLIPPING THROUGH the months of 
the Southern College calendar, one 
can notice an abundance of differ- 
ent activities scheduled, including 
CABL week. What exactly is CABL

physically, spiritually and men- 
tally. "The purpose of CABL week 
is to offer different choices and 
alternatives," she added. 

For example, Blood Assurance and 
cholesterol and fat testing came 
to campus. Blood donor Shannon 
Thompson said it was a good feel- 
ing to know you can save a life 
with the blood you give. According 
to Dean of Students, Bill Wohlers, 
this was one of the best blood 
drives here at Southern. 

Not only were there chances to 
help others, but talks on benefit- 
ting yourself were offered. Speak- 
ers such as Dr. Bechard and Denise 
Pope focused on preventing vene- 
real diseases. At Thursday's as- 
sembly, Gerald Wilkins of the New 
York Knicks, spoke to the student 
body as a good example of better 

As the week came to a close, 
CABL offered a special vespers 
where two students described their 
experiences with drugs. After many 
years of struggle, the new choices 
and alternatives began to pay off 
as they started to achieve a belter 
way of life.

Senate Unanimously Rejects SA Budget; 
Officers Meet to Make Adjustments 

hear Feagins li 

the SA officers in the first 
meeting, held Wednesday. 
Sept. 26. The object of debate 
was this year's budget, a contro- 
versial issue among the officers 
the start of the year. 
The senate voted unanimously 
to postpone further consideration 
of the budget so the officers could 
settle differences. This 
leeting, which was called Mon- 

Oct. 2.

Although the main item on the agenda for the senators was the SA budget, most of the 
sion consisted of bickering among the SA officers. 

Board Considers Changing 
Southern College to University 

WE ALL know the name Southern College 
well. It has stuck for eight years. But there is 
talk of changing it.. .someday. 

Six private colleges in the state of Tennes- 
see have changed their names from "college" 
o "university" within the past three years. 
Phis is not only taking place in Tennessee, but 
ill over the nation as well. 

A year and a half ago, board members dis- 
cussed the idea of changing the name South- 
ern College to Southern University. Although 
this is not a current issue of the board, it is one 
that may be re-evaluated in the future. 

"I don't see a change happening in the near 
future," said Southern College President Don 
Sahly. "It was the vote of the faculty not to 
proceed in that direction at this time." The 
term "university" carries with it many conno- 
tations, and, according to Sahly, many board 
members are not comfortable with it. 

However, Sahly feels that such a change 
could be beneficial. He thin^:s "university" 
implies prestige which could provide various 

public relations, recruiting and fund-raising 
alternatives, "i hope Southern College will 
seek university status because we are a sig- 
nificant institution," said Sahly. "What we 
need to decide is do we want to present that 
image, and are we ready to?" 

There aren't any legal requirements for 
becoming a university. An institution which 
offers baccalaureate degrees like Southern can 
simply declare itself a university. This is a 
matter of board action and the approval of the 
Southern Association, said Sahly. 

Presently, no one is promoting or opposing 
the idea. The matter has been put aside until 
other "hurtles" have passed, said Sahly. 

"f do feel it will become a strong topic of 
discussion among faculty in the future." he 
said. "It is something we have to move 
into very carefully and cautiously- We will 
give study to it." 

which should have been held one 
month before last school year 
ended. According to the SA 
constitution, there needs to be a 
convention of the officers and S A 
sponsors to discuss the budget in 
this time period. 

Instead, SA Treasurer Darin 
Stewart had the officers submit 
discus- their respective departmental 
budgets to him for revision. This 
led to a communication break- 
down between the SA executive and other 
SA officers, said President Woody White, 
which still existed by the time of the senate 

However, the budget differences were 
finally settled at Monday's officers meet- 
ing. Perhaps the most conflicting factor in 
the budget was the 
SA officers. This v 
fact that salaries have remained the same 
since 1982 and have remained below the 
rates of other Adventist colleges in North 
America, said White. 

The officers who had problems with the 
pay hikes were not against the raises them-

■ NEW YORK- On Monday. Bush addressed the 
United Nations saying he wanis a peaceful solution in 
the Gulf. In a speech delivered to the Genera! Assem- 
bly, Bush said thai after an Iraqi withdrawl from 
Kuwait, steps could be taken "'for all the stares and the 
peoples of ^e region to settle the conflicts that divide 
the Arabs from Israel." Meanwhile. Sadaam Hussein 
released nine French nationals believed to have been 
detained at strategic sites as shields against attack. 

(MOSCOW- The Supreme Soviet approved a law on 
freedom of religion by a 341-2 vote. This ended dec- 
ades of government interference with religion. The 
legislators also began debating a proposed measure 
that would set procedures for organizing new political 
parties and guarantee them equal rights with the Com- 
munist Party. 

■MONROVIA, Liberia- Heavy fighting was reponed 
on Monday after a West African task force , backed by 
Nigerian warplanes and heavy artillery, fored on Char- 
les Taylor's army. Ttie firing signaled an end to a 
week-old truce, but thai cease-fire had proved largely 
ineffective. Monday's action could force a quick con- 
clusion to the fighting that has cut this capital city off 
ft-om the outside world for nearly three months.

■ YOSEMrre NATIONAL PARK, Calif.- Rangers 
and tourists celebrated Yosemite's unique status as the

The silence was broken only by a blue jay's shrieks.

and their children tomorrow," said Yosemite Indifm

■ JACKSON. Miss.- The descendants of slaves will 
soon be able to reach into a computer for keys to the 
stories of how their forebears shed their bonds and 
took paying jobs after the Civil War. The state Depart- 
ment of Archives and History will have an index of 
labor contracts on computer. The index will contain 
36,359 contracts of former Mississippi slaves entered 
into in 1865 and 1866. H.T. Holmes, director of the 
archives' library division, said archive librarians will 
use the computer index to son through thousands of 
labor contracts kept by the Freedmen's Bureau. 

■ CAPE CANAVERAL, Ra.- After months of em- 
barrassing failures, NASA will try again lliis week to

New Energy Management to Save 
Southern Thousands of Dollars 

"IT TAKES one ton of air conditioning to 
cool off the heat generated by 72 four foot 
fluorescent lights. So in other words, turn 
your lights off when you leave the room," 
said Ed Lucas, director of energy manage- 

This is the statement of a man who is 
concerned with the energy 
I management on campus. 
Just last December the 

sensor is installed in each room, whereas 
before there was one to a building. Having 
one in each room, which is computer con- 
trolled, can cater to individual needs and save 
money. The computer con- 
trols the temperature and the 
time each one is on. Each 
sensor is monitored by a 
computer in Lucas's office. 

Jan Haveman, office man- 
ager for the public relations 
department, said "they worked 
with us until we got the new 
system at a comfortable tem- 
perature. We didn't lose con- 
trol of the temperature." 

Having a computer con- 
trolled sensor does not mean 
you will not be able to choose 
your temperature for your 
room, said Lucas.

but not for the dorms," said

selves, but how they were dis- 
tributed. Instead of "across the 
board" raises, meaning an equal 
increase for ail. some officers got 
zero percent while another got a 
33 percent raise. 

The publications {Southern 
Accent and Southern Memories) 
editors received none because 
they have access to advertising 
revenue other officers do not. 
However, Ervin Brown, Straw- 
berry Festival director, does not 
have access to ad dollars, but did 

meeting. White said this was due 
to an oversight, but Stewart said 
in Monday's officers meeting the 
Strawberry Festival director had 
in fact received a substantial 
salary hike last year. 

The parliamentarian received 
the 33 percent raise, and the 
remaining officers received any- 
where from 17 to 25 percent. The 
amounts were determined by 
each officer's level of responsi- 

bility, said White. 

However, the officers reached 
the decision to give across the 
board raises of 15 percent. 

Some other agreements reached 
in Monday's meeting was the job 
description of the new SA com- 
puter analyst post. Whereas the 
analyst was a proposed SA offi- 
cer before, it is now a staff posi- 
tion under the SA treasurer. 
However, the analyst will still 
receive a salary of $500 for the 
year, which was in the original 

Other agreements reached were 
the appropriation of recreation 
room funds and more money to 
the annual senate project. 

Before the close of the meeting, 
all officers expressed their satis- 
faction with the compromises in 
the budget. 

White said he believes with 
these problems solved, the SA can 
now better serve the students. He 
also stressed that all problems 
between officers in the future be 
brought to him in order to avoid 
more communication breakdowns 
and bickering like that displayed 
at the senate meeting. 

Senator Peter Kroll from pre- 
cinct eight made the motion to 
send the budget back to the offi- 
cers for revision, bringing the one 
and a half hour meeting to a close. 
Before the motion, Senator 
Angela Dyer from precinct two 
stated that as long as the budget 
was an object of conflict among 
the officers, nothing could be 
accomplished in the senate meet- 

The senate will meet Wednes- 
day, Oct. 10, to consider the 
budget a second time. B

Instructional Media Sees Long-Awaited Renovations 

By I 

"WE'RE HERE to provide the 
full services of Instructional 
Media to teachers and students," 
said Frank Dimmemo, Director 
of Instructional Media, as he 
looked over the newly finished 
Instructional Media classroom 

Dimmemo said it was just last 
spring that Southern College's 
administration made the commit- 
ment to carry out plans to finish 
construction on the unfinished 
pan of the Instructional Media 

Dimmemo said these plans 
originated in 1981 when it was 
first announced that Instructional 
Media would be moving to the 
ground floor of Brock Hall. 

Construction workers recently 
added a classroom, storage space, 
and four viewing rooms. New 
lighting, a tile floor, and a ceiling 

were installed. Dii 
said the classroom will aiso 
be used as a graphics pro- 
duction lab. 

The viewing rooms will 
be available for students to 
do assignments that require 
a TV and VCR. Faculty 
may use the facilities to 
prepare for their classes. 

The new storage space 
makes it possible for the 
department to keep equip- 
ment in their own area. 
Whereas before, they had 
to borrow space from the 
engineering department, 
said Dimmemo- 

"I'm really excited thai 
we're now able to provide 
the Instructional Media 
services that are in demand 
at Southern College,'" Dim-

Too Free With the Key 

Dear Editors, 

I have always been mildly annoyed with the 
R.A.s in Talge Hall. I know it's their job, but 
I've never been able to determine exactly 
why they have to barge in every night, some- 
times without even a knock. 

But I became very annoyed the other night 
when a good 15-20 minutes after the usual 
11:15 night check, the R.A. intruded a sec- 
ond time to see if there were any visitors in 
my room. Rediculous! There weren't any in 
the room before, so why should he have to 
check again? Common sense would tell me 
that anyone who might have gone in my room 
after check would already be on check with 
his R.A. or at the dorm entrance. In short, I 
think once was plenty. 

Furthermore, about the barging in thing. 
Knocking and barging sort of defeats the 
whole purpose of knocking, doesn't it? Let's 
not pretend we're being polite by knocking 
first. I mean, you might as well just barge in, 
right? For some of us, 1 1 : 1 5 is the only time 
we have to engage in the very masculine 
ritual of dancing in front of the mirror to our 
favorite tape, air guitar in hand and head- 
phones blaring, oblivious to an impending 
night check. On the other hand, some of us 
would just like some privacy and respect. I'd 
like to suggest that the R.A.s knock and then 
wait for the person to open the door. That's 
always been the traditional way at my house 
and for those in the dorms widiout a master 
key. Perhaps waiting at the door wouldn't 
make night checks an expeditious process, 
but that's not my problem.

Joker Editing is Biased 

Dear Editors, 

After looking over this year's Joker, I would 
first like to say that an excellent job was done 
by the staff. However, I would like to point 
out that some of the editing of the "messages 
to the world" seemed needless and very bi- 

We should be able to say what we want as 
long as it is decent, in good taste, and not 
offensive to anyone. I had a message cen- 
sored and now want to know why it was 
censored. My message was "Party on 
Dudes" — a classic saying from the Simpsons 
TV show. I believe it was edited because the 
word "party" gives a liberal perception in the 
real worid. At the same time, the word "party" 
is used several other times throughout the 

It's too late to do anything about it this 
year, but I hope the faculty and staff that does 
the editing next year does a better job and lets 
us have a little fun. If nothing else, let us 
know our message was edited so we can add

Don't Misplace Your Mace 

Dear Editors, 

It has recently come to my attention in a 
most stunning way that the "rape scare" has 
gotten a little out of hand. I do believe that 
precaution is necessary, but sometimes it has 
gone too far. 

Saturday night I decided to stay on campus 
and experience SC's Saturday night life. At 
8:30, 1 headed for the Smdent Center to check 
things out. I went into KR's to get some 
food. There I was, waiting for my Provolone 
at the end of the counter, when I felt a wet 
mist on my face. InstanUy, there was an 
intense burning sensation followed by dizzi- 

As I fell to the floor clutching my face, the 
possibilities of Saddam Hussein using chemi- 
cal warfare in North America flashed through 
my mind. Then I heard a voice say, "Hey, 
what is this stuff?" Someone answered, "My 
mace, like it?" 

Well, 1 can honestly say the mace worked, 
but I didn't like it. Afterlgotit offmy face, 
1 choked down my sandwich, for which I 
wasn't hungry anymore. 

Sure, I agree it's not safe out there, but 
random extermination of the male populace 
isn't going to cut it. Also, I would like to 
suggest getting guns. At least people know 

what they are, and if, by chance, 
were to get accidentally shot, at least they I 
would be dead instead of wishing they v

Recycling Reaps Benefits 

Dear Editors, 

I became seriously involved in recycling as 
a result of participation in Earth Day activi- 
ties in the spring of 1990. That day came at 
a time when our family household was tem- 
porarily smaller than usual, and for a few 
days I dreamed that we could cancel our 
garbage service by recycling and composting. I 
These dreams soon ended, but we have been | 
able to reduce our home disposal mas 
about 15% and to take this amount tc 
Collegedale recycle center. 

I keep a cardboard box (maybe 9 
mches. like those in which envelopes or papers 1 
come) by my desk, near the trash can, a] 
scrap paper, advertisements, and magazines I 
{not envelopes) in it. I have thus been able to 
reduce my work disposal mass by about 70% 
and to take this amount to the recycle center. 

The sorting and the trips to the recycle | 
center absorb about 30 minutes per week; 
thus, and investment of about 1 1 hours has I 
resulted in taking perhaps 150 lbs. of paper I 
and perhaps twice that weight of other r 
rial to the recycle center. 

There is little reward beyond knowing that I 
if everyone else did the same sort of thing, 
there would be a vast impact for the better. 
The activity does make one feel quite clever, 
in the sense that practically nobody else seems 
able to grasp (intuitively, by reading the 
instructions, or by listening to orders) what to 
put into what container. . . even many of the 
people who take their stuff to the recycling 
center! But then I think about how beautiful [ 
much of our God-given planet earth is, and 
realize that this effort does go to preserving I 
that beau!^, and it's worth all the trouble.

Senators Should Carry on Service and Spirit 

Going into the first Stu- 
dent Association Senate 
meeting Wednesday. Sept. 
26, we were somewhat 
apprehensive that this year's 
crop of senators would be 
an apathetic group. A 
group who might swallow 
and digest without question 
anything fed to it. Tlie 
worst kind of senate is a 
passive one. This could 
have been especially true 
Wednesday, when Ihis 
year's S.A. budget was 
presented for approval, 
which was controversial. 
But as the meeting went on. 
we were pleased to see the 
senators speaking up and 
asking questions. The 


the atmosphere businesslike 
and organized. To say the 
least, we were pleased. 

The true test came when 
the S.A. officers voiced 
their various concerns stooMX 
the budget. As hoped for, 
the senators became more 
inquisitive as discontent 
over the budget unraveled. 
Finally. Senator Peter Kroll 
(Precinct 8) made a motion 
to send the budget back to 
the S.A. officers, who 
would revise it into a more 
acceptable form. Essen- 
tially, he said he didn't 
want to vote and take 
responsibilty for sometliing 
he knew little of and which 
the officers couldn't agree 

That's the spirit we hope 
to see more of this year. 
There may be many more 
conuxiversial issues like the 
budget confronting the 

tiny displayed in the first 
meeting. If this spirit 
carries on. we can all be 
confident that every out- 
come of every consequence 
which comes before the 
senate will be to the general 
satisfaction of the student 

By taking \ht correct 
action. Uie Senate gave the 
SA a ch^ce to work out 
their differences. The SA 
will now become stronger

The senators are elected 
to serve their constituents: 
you. the student. They are 
there to listen to your 
needs, your cares, and 
amplify them to the whole 
for consideration and the 
£tppropriate action. With 
this in mind, the Southern 
Accent encourages and 
expects this year's senators 
to continue to work together 
for the betterment of (he 
student body, of which they 
are a part, by the way, with 
a devout altitude and a

Three Passes? 

You've seen it many times. Jerry 
Rice streaks down ihe sideline and 
catches a perfectly placed pass from 
Joe Montana. Then, as he runs lo the 
end zone, he seems to be looking for 
someone. I['s certainly not a defender. 
He waits for John Taylor to cross into 
the end zone and then passes to him 
for the touchdown. What the,,.! 

Do the Hawaiians really play this 
way? Is it really possible to improve 
on this great game of American foot-

thought so.

sand and not accomplishing much.

forward pass. That worked well, so 
wh> not add another? Pure genius.

That's right, the war against 

The team, coached by Ted 
Evans and Steve Jaecks, is more 
than just a talented group of 
gymnasts. They are on a mission 
to stop the use of drugs. 

The anti-drug emphasis was 
started four years ago when the 
team attempted to perform at a 
local high school. TTiey were not 
allowed to have prayer or express 
any religious issues. With a 
conviction to reach the students, 
the team looked for another ave- 
nue. They decided to promote 

the issues of good health, with 
the main emphasis on the war 
against drugs. 

"We are trying to find unique 
ways to fight the drug war in 
America," said Evans. 

The team works locally with 
the STARS (Students Taking A 
Right Stand) program. The 
STARS program schedules nearly 
10 performances a year for the 
team. The coaches then schedule 
special f>erformances and the 
usual tours throughout the South- 
em Union. The team is currently 
trying to schedule performances 
at an Atlanta Hawks basketball 
game and at UTC.

Joi Richards 

MOST OF us may know Joi 
Richards as a teacher in the P.E. 
department, but how does she stay 
a lean, mean, athletic machine? 

Richards is a cross-training 
woman. Her favorite sports are 
flag football and basketball. She 
trains by running, bicycling, and 
on the Stair-Master three to four 
days per week. 

Her diet includes no processed 
foods and sugar only about once 
a week. She believes a natural 
diet is a key to athletic perform- 
According to Richards, she was 
a total "tom-boy" as a child. Her

ambition changed in college when

SA Initiates 



V Tanya John. 

THE STUDENT Association of South- 
em College is initiaring a new awareness 
for the environment. 

Woody White, S.A. president, feels it is 
time students take more of a role in civic 
awareness. This is an attempt to focus on 
a positive contribution to improving the 
quality of life here, he said. 

Some changes the S.A. would like to see 
on campus include switching from styro- 
foam products lo paper in the cafeteria, 
installing air hand dryers in the restrooms 
instead of paper towels and a comprehen- 
sive recycling program on campus. 

Unformnately. milking such changes in- 
volve some complications. "Switching 
from styrofoam to paper is costly. Paper is 
substantially more eKpensive." siiid Earl 
Evans, director of food services. How- 
ever. Evans infonned that tfie styrofoam 
products presently used on campus do not 
contain fiuorocarbons. a chemical that 
destroys the ozone layer. 

"As educated people, we have an obliga- 
tion 10 society lo help out in any way we 
can. The S.A. wishes to succeed in con- 
veying the importance of this issue to stu- 
dents," said White. 

White hopes each student will do his or 
her pari in making Southern's environ- 
ment a safer place. 

Hefferlin Undertakes 100 Year Challenge 

By Sill 

CRADLED AT the foot of the Smokey mines the size of the projects undertaken by 
I Mountains sits the small city of Collegedale. students and faculty. Far from it. For on the 
It's been said that Collegedale is so small that second floor of Daniels Hall, the center for 
upon mention to a Tennesseean, the general math, computer science and physics, a proj- 
response is, "Where?" At the heart of this ect is being produced which the whole scien- 
town is Southern College. Like Collegedale, tific world will welcome. It is called the 
S.C. is small compared to other colleges. But periodical chart for diatomic molecules. It 
I this does not mean that our small size deter- will be the first of its kind. 

Dr. Ray Hefferlin, chairman of the 
physics department, is in charge of the 
creation. This chart is not the same as 
the periodical chart for atoms, says 
Hefferiin. but the chart for the differ- 
ent combinations of atoms, called 

When Hefferlin began the project, 
he thought he was the first person to at- 
tempt such a chart. It was not until the 
1982 publication of the Journal of Mo- 
lecular Structure that he found he 
wasn't alone. A Chinese scientist. Dr. 
^^Kong, had written an article about a 
Tiilar project. 
According to Hefferlin, he and Kong 

started the chart at the same time, approxi- 
mately Christmas of 1976. Since that time, 
Hefferlin has also learned of two Russian 
doctors who are also working on the chart, 
and keeps in constant contact with them. 
Hefferiin believes that Kong has since aban- 
doned the project. 

S.C. students have also had an opportunity 
to contribute to the project. Gary Burdick. a 
19S5 graduate of physics, is the only former 
student who is actively working on it. Cur- 
rently enrolled students helping are Robert 
Marsa, Rick Cavanaugh and James Robertson, 
all physics majors. For a student to work on 
the chart, he or she has to be enthusiastic 
about the project and have a knowledge of 
computers, among other things. 

Hefferlin says he is not really good at 
running computers, but "it doesn't matter 
because our students around here are so good 
I can tell them what's needed and they'll 
know how to do it."

New Officers Take 
Over Beta Kapa Tau 

BETA KAPPA Tau. formerly 
called the Black Students Asso- 
ciation, has been on Southern 
College's campus since 1978, 
Though the name of the club lias 
changed over the past three years, 
it's purpose remains the same. 

Beta Kappa Tau means "lo be 
kind to one another." The club's 
purpose is to promote unity and 
brotherhood by adniinisrering 
primarily to the religious and 
social needs of the black student 
population at SC. 

'"'Ve are striving for the suc- 
m an academic, spiritual and 
professional level," said Tony 
ThedfonipresidenlofBKT. "We 
feel that the black students here 

Southern can have an impact 

the world. One of our goals is 
to insiili in the minds of our 
members that he or she is some- 
special. So we as an organi- 
an can aid and direct our 
members towards these goals," 
said Thedford. 

The club's activities include 
AYS (Adventist Youth Societyj 
programs consisting of singing, 
testimonies, skits, plays, and 
Sabbath vespers. Trips are often 
taken to different churches ii 
Chattanooga, BtTmingham. am 
Atlanta. Other activities includi 
a choir, socials, basketball games 
and a Christmas party. 

The club's long-term goal is u 
set up a system of networking 
between black students at SC with 
black professionals in the work- 
ing fields. This is so students car 
be awiire of the job opportunities 
in their perspective fields. 

The 1990-91 officers of BKT 
are as follows: Tony Thedford 
president; Pamela Allen, vice 
president; Jill Thedford, social 
vice president; Sean Johtison, 
public relations; Gary Collins, 
chaplain; Chris Murray, assistani 
chaplain; Angela Gunn, secrelar>'; 
and Samanlha Gregory.

Mrs. Blanco: 
The Mystery Unveiled 

"THREE LINES, three lines. 
Merge, please." 

Anyone that enters the South- 
ern College cafeteria for lunch 
might hear these words from a 
soft-spoken, small-framed 


Mrs. Blanco is the cafeteria 
hostess. But herjob doesn't stop 
there. Besides greeting people, 
she is in charge of traffic control, 

cleaning the tables, putting the 
menu up, organizing the "Food 
for Thought" bulletin board, keep- 
ing the napkin holders full, and 
maintaining order in the dining 
room. In essence, she is the "law 
and order" person in the dining 
room. Consequently, she lakes a 
lot of the heat for the rules in the 

With all of these responsibili- 
ties, how can a person be so 
cheerful and happy all of the time? 
"I get so many smiles when the 
students come in," Mrs. Blanco 
says excitedly. "I can't help but 
smile back." She really enjoys 
working in the dining room with 
the students. "I'm impressed with 
their happy, upbeat spirit," she 
says. "It's a delight to work with 

One aspect of Mrs. Blanco's 
I job that she dislikes is rule en- 
forcement. "It hurts me," she 
says. "I would much rather give 
them a hug. It's much easier." 
I The cafeteria rule broken most 
often is the dress code. SC's 
Handbook states that no shorts, 
I tank tops, and no ragged or 
dirty clothes are to be worn in the 
cafeteria. Nevertheless, some 
students come into Mrs. Blanco's 
territory without the proper at- 

Mrs. Blanco says she rarely has 

trouble when reminding the stu- 
dents of the rules. "The students 
have such a good attitude. They 
just forget sometimes," she said. 
When they do forget, she asks 
them quietly, "Carry-out?" This 
simple, two-word question re- 
minds the student that rules must 
be obeyed. 

Several students feel that she 
does her work very conscien- 
tiously. That is because she feels 
strongly about enforcing the rules. 
"I'm told to en- 
force the dress 
code. As a parent 
or teacher, you do 
what is expected of 
you," said Mrs. 
Blanco. Even 
though she doesn't 
totally agree with 
all the rules she is 
required to en- 
i force, she feels that 
■ she s helping to 
I prepare students 
I for the future. "I 
really love the 
kids and I figure 
It s for their best 
good," she says. 
When they leave, 
they will have to 
abide by company 

The waste of 
natural resources 
in the cafeteria is 
another concern of 
Mrs. Blanco's. "It 
bothers me to see some students 
take a stack of napkins and then 
leave them on their trays," she 

Away from the cafeteria dining 
room, Mrs. Blanco is involved in 
many extracurricular activities. 
One of her favorite hobbies is ex- 
ercise. She walks with her hus- 
band often, rides an exercise bike, 
uses a rowing machine, jumps on 
a mini-trampoline, and works out 
with weights. "My husband 
bought me little weights to work 
out my arms, but I plan to work 
up to using his weights," she said 
confidently. Mrs. Blanco used to 
belong to a health club where she 
did aerobics and used a nautilus 
machine. She also attended some 
aerobics classes given on cam- 
Other activities Mrs. Blanco 
enjoys are reading, sewing, and 
taking care of her two dozen 
house plants. She is in the proc- 
ess of decorating her house, and 
she attends a Bible study group 
every Tuesday. The study group 
has been meeting since she started 
working in the cafeteria five years 

Whether in the dining room or 
elsewhere, Mrs. Blanco clearly 
likes to stay active. It is evident 
that she wants to "carry out" her 
life to the fullest.

LTHC Major Forms New Club 

HOW DOES this sound? You 
graduate fi-om college and in less 
than three years you are earning 
$40,000 and a new car each year. 

According to business teacher 
Dan Rozell, that was exactly what 
happened to one of his Long- 
Term Health Care (LTHC) stu- 

This profession is in demand, 
and not only is it growing in the 
"real" world, but here at South- 
em as well. The LTHC major is 
now boasfing 22 students, which 
prompted the start of the LTHC 

Rozell sponsors the club. 
"Anyone who is interested or 
even thinking about LTHC can 
and should join," he says. 

The club plans to attend local 
seminars and field trips in addi- 
tion to their own meeting and 
vesprers programs. 

"The whole purpose of the 
club," says Rozell, "is to enhance 
the awareness of the student body 
to the opportunities available in 
the profession of LTHC. It is 
also a service to the students to 

help them discover if this is re- 
ally what they want to do for the 
rest of their life." 

The LTHC club recruits mem- 
bers through an organization 
called the American College of 
Health Care Administrators. 
"The organization is an excellent 
source for getting acquainted with 
other administrators," says 
Rozell. Students may also have 
resumes printed in the newslet- 

LTHC not only is a good 
money-making profession, but an 
excellent way to witness, accord- 
ing to Rozell. He even referred 
to it as a mission field. "You are 
able to show true Christianity to 
the patients and their visitors in 
and day our. Isn't that what we 
are all about?" 

Anyone interested in joining the 
club may contact Rozell or any 
of the newly-elected officers: 
Scott Edens, president; Robert 
Young, vice president; Johanna 
King, social vice president; 
Catesby Ware, treasurer; and 
Angela Bullock, secretary.

Draper, Julia Kim, Suzanne Lettrick, Gary Blancherd 
and Kevin Snider. 



Computers are a big help to 
Hefferlin's project, but even with 
them it will take a long time 
before the chart is completed. 
"Oh, about a hundred years," says 
Hefferlin with a chuckle. "It's 
just such an immense thing to do. 
We're trying to classify 7,000 dif- 
ferent kinds of diatomic (two 
atom) molecules, and something 
like 850,000 triatomic molecules. 
We've pretty much finished with 
diatomics, and I would guess we 
are maybe one fifth of the way 
done with triatomic," he says. 

In making the chart, Hefferlin 
and students label each molecule 
in its proper order on black, 
wooden blocks covered with 
white paper. Each little cube on 
the block stands for one mole- 
cule. There are many cubes on a 
block. The properties are not 
written, but only the names of the 
molecules "because if properties 
were labeled, the chart would be 
about six times as big. The whole 
room would be filled with 
blocks," says Hefferlin. 
As it is now. there are many of 

these blocks in Hefferlin's office. 
He points to a great mound of 
them and says, "That whole pile 
out there, plus four boxes are 
filled with blocks. And that's 
just the diatomic molecules!" 

Hefferlin's work has already 
been recorded in his book Peri- 
odic Systems and Their Relation 
to the Systematic Analysis of 
Molecular Data. After four years 
of working on the book, it was 
finally published in 1989. Dr. 
Kong and the Russian scientists 
contributed to the book. 

Hefferlin is paid for his research 
from the science chair of S.C., 
"so it's not coming out of stu- 
dent's tuition," he says. 

"There's nothing quite like the 
thrill of discovering something 
new, even if what you discover is 
a mistake that someone else made, 
because you are improving our 
knowledge of God's creation," he 
says. "I don't think this work is 
going to result in a better plastic 
or a better hear shield for the 
shuttle, or something like that. 
Largely, it's going to build a 
better understanding of how the 
constructed." ■ 

Destiny Drama Co. 
Begins New Season 


THE 1990-91 Destiny Drama 
group is now under way and has 
promises of an exciting season. 
Craig Moore, director of Destiny, 
is enthusiastic about working with 
this years' members. "There is a 
lot of good talent," says Moore. 
Out of the thirty-five people 
who auditioned, fourteen were 
chosen to become members. 
Moore explained that in the audi- 
tion itself, they were looking for 
raw talent. However, what they 
ultimately wanted was a commit- 
ment to the group and to the 
gospel of Jesus Cluist. 
The touring season, which starts 

in November, has several excit- 
ing trips planned. Destiny plans 
to travel to Andrews University 
as well as to several youth rallies, 
including one in Kettering, Ohio. 
They also plan to perform at sev- 
eral non-Adventists schools, and 
at the local Hamilton Place Mall. 
Moore stated that the goals of 
the group is to portray the power, 
pertinence, and the personality of 
Jesus Christ with energy, impact, 
and drive. He went further to ex- 
plain, "People should not look to 
God as an almighty being, but as 
a friend, their best friend."

Have you ever wondered 
why we cry at happy endings? 
Psychologists say that there 

We cry because unpli 
feelings are stirred up at tue 

ccasion and not because we 

re happy. 

A happy ending means there 

i no more reason for sadness, 
hence the energy used to stifle 
our tears is released, some- 
times by laughter, but more 
often in an expression of the 
repressed sadness — tears. 
Adults sometimes experi- 
;e a temporary return to 
childhood during a happy 
ending, and the tears flow 
from the stress of realizing one 
return to the "real" 

The tendency to cry at happy 
endings is not restricted to 
stories. In reality, relatives of 
'tically ill patient usually 
lot before or during sur- 
gery, but after the operation is 
successful. Again, the happy 
ending gives the opportunity 
for the repressed tears to flow. 
Emotionally, we are needy, 
selfish, and demanding. We 
lend to cry for selfish reasons 
happy endings, not for 
others. However, this doesn't 
we can't feel joy in 
others' happiness. Tears at the 
happy ending reveal our ideal- 
side, the part of us that 
yearns for the simplicity and 
ve once thought possible 
and the part of us that mourns

By Julie Jacobs 
DURING.THE second SA Senate meeting between SA officers last meeting, was ap- 

held Wednesday, Oct. 10, the s 
proved the SA budget, the styrofoam re 
ment resolution, and Kevin Snider as ni 
PR director. 
The budget, which caused so much t< 

proved finally with little debate. 

"At the last meeting, there were a lot of 

misunderstandings," said Darin Stewart, SA 

finance director. "At this second meeting, 

everyone knew more of what was going on. 

It's was all a matter 

of understanding," 

said Stewart. 

This year's budget 
includes an increase 
in the senate project 
fund and salary r ' 

health care club, itself in its first year, has 
just formed a student chapter in a national 
association of nursing home administrators. 

This new chapter of the American College 
of Health Care Administrators is the first to 
be hosted by a Seventh-day Adventist col- 
lege. It was officially recognized on Oct. 9. 

"Our first intention was only to start a long- 
term health care (LTHC) club," said club 
President Scott Edens, "but becoming a 
chapter of the American College was dis- 
cussed from the start. They had approached 
SC before in hopes we'd form one, and this 
year we decided to go for it." 

"Students in the American College are a 
leg up from the others. They will learn more 
rapidly and be in there quicker," said the 
club's advisor Dan Rozell. "With the aging 
of the population, the jobs are there — and it's 
a wonderful mission field." 

Of the nearly 40 LTHC majors, 25 are due- 
paying members of the club, and five have 
joined the American College. The five are: 
Scott Edens, Ariel Jimenez, Joanna King, 
Stan Strange and Bob Young. All are jun- 
iors, seniors, or graduate students. 

"Since the chapter has barely begun, it hasn't 
yet been promoted on this campus," said 

"It's hard to sell the chapter to freshmen 
and sophomores because they don't think they 
need to network with corporations yet, or

Every officer re- 
ceived a 15% raise, 
according to Stewart.

happy with the 
budget now," said

food we can," said Evans. The 
money we make from catering helps 
defray student charges. 

"I always try to give students as 
much of a bre^ on prices as I can," 
said Evans. "As our food prices go 
up, we try to absorb as much of the 
cost increase as possible, but some- 
where down the line we have to pass 
the cost along to the end-user." 

Evans said the price of yogurt went 
up nine cents per unit this last week, 
while the cost of a case of orange 
juice went up$12. He said he didn't 
charge the students more for these 
items, despite the added expense.

According to Evans, the crisis in the 
Middle East is one of the contributing 
factors to the increasing food costs. 
He said the food companies now ad-

food cost which drives his price higher. 
Even without the Middle East prob-

alone would have necessitated an even-

Rising utility costs, the increasing 
price of cardboard boxes, theft, and

Southern's Endowment 
Fund Reaches $6.5 Million 

By Kaihryn Vandulek 

fund has hit the $6.5 million mark, 
according to Vice President for Devel- 
opment Jack McClarty. The objective 
is to raise $10 million by a certain date. 
Although no deadline has been set. it is 
hoped the $ 1 million will be raised by 
1992, Southern College's centennial, 
said McDarty. When this is reached. 
new goals will be set. So far, approxi- 
mately $1 million has been raised each 

All of the money remains in the en- 
dowment fund, and none is taken out. 
Instead, the interest is used to help 
students with financial needs. Pres- 
ently, interest earnings are eight per- 
cent, a rate which allows aid to 400 SC 
students per school year. 
Those who contribute to the endow- 

ment fund are the school board, 
administration, faculty and staff, 
alumni, parents, business and foun- 
dations. An investment committee 
handles the money according to 
guidelines set by the General Con- 

Cmrently, a union-wide offering 
of all the churches in the Southem 
Union Conference is being worked 

The endowment fund has signifi- 
cant importance now and for Ihe 
future, said McClarty. When fed- 
eral government cutbacks occur, the 
endowment fund is necessary. This 
makes Southem College more self- 
sufficient, histead of relying on the

Students Express Mixed Feelings 

on 50's Fling; Censorship Issue, 

Activities Are Factors 

BY THE close of the SA 50's Fling Sat- 
urday night, Oct. 6, there were feelings of 
dissatisfaction among some students towards 
the party. 

"There was just nothing to do, it was so 
boring," said Lori Pettibone. 

Dame Looby said, "There wasn't much 

Several students who began dancing to the 
background music were asked to stop. 

Despite the negative feelings, SA Social 
Vice President Annette Crosier said she 
doesn't regard the evening as a "flop. The 
50's was a controversial era, and it created a 
controversy on the campus," she said. 

"The idea was for students to socialize and 
get to know each other; it was not supposed 
stop activity," said Heather Eric- 

Shonda Chase gets into a sticky situation 
during the bubble blowing contest. She 
won a 50's poster for her efforts. 

Adding to the disappointment, a live band 
under the leadership of Jon Elliston was 
limited to a two-song concert. 

But Elliston only submitted two songs to 
the music committee, which is in charge of 
screening music for SA events. In fact, both 
pieces, "Heartbreak Hotel" and "Johnny Be 
Good," were disapproved by the committee. 
The songs submitted were the recordings by 
Elvis Presley and Chuck Barry, respectively, 
and not submitted as perfomied by EUiston's 
band. "Heartbreak Hotel" was censored, for 
example, because Presley sings in a "very 

ber Pat Silver. 

However, Elliston said he told Silver the 
band would perform the song in a more 
appropriate manner, not the way Presley 
performed it. 

In the end, the band played "Wipe Out." 
which was approved just moments before 
Elliston went on stage by Don Mathis, also 
on the music committee and assistant dean of 
Talge Hall. 

Some in the audience wanted an encore, 
but SA President Woody White said they 
could not perform more, explaining there's 
only so many songs you can play at "a 
wonderful school like Southern College." 
White said he meant Southern College is 
above other schools, and consequently some 
things just aren't acceptable; however, he 
feels as college students and leaders, "it would 
be nice to have more freedom to reign." 

According to Silver, both EUiston's songs 
and the background music, which consisted 
of several compact discs, were given to her 
on Tuesday, five days before the Fling. She 
said it would have been better to receive ihe 
music "no later than two weeks before the 
event," plus another week's notice to set an 
appointment to hear the songs. 

"You can't expect much [music] to be 
passed when it's given to you on such short 
noticc.We're not trying to be hard to work 
with," said Silver. This aspect of SA organi- 
"noi professionally oriented," she 

Snider Initiates 
New PR Programs 


KEVIN SNIDER was recently appointed 
and afterwards approved by the senate as 
the new SA public relations director. The 
former director, Deanna Moore, quit three 
weeks ago. 

"Through the 
of this 
. system, stu- 
Soider dents can call 

in and get m- 
foimalion such as intramural schedules and 
activities that will take place on week- 
ends." he said. 

Annette Crosier, SA social vice presi- 
dent, said. "Kevin has done a really good 
job so far. When he came into office it 
was like a load off my mind." 

Snider plans to revise the Wallside Jour- 
nal, keeping the students aware of current 
activities. He is also planning to do pro- 
motions for the college with local televi- 
sion and radio stations, working with new 
ideas as they come along. 

"Kevin is doing an excellent job." said 
SA President Woody White, '"niis year 
we want the PR department to go above 
putting up posters. We want to Fmd out 
what the students want and accomplish as 
much as possible. And Kevin Snider, along 
with the SA staff, is the one who can 
accomplish these goals." 

The Starlight Blue Tone Lounge Improvisations performed at the Fling. 

ted two songs. "In the future I'll do it in 
advance," he said. 

Crosier said she understood from William 
Wohlers, Southern's director of student serv- 
ices, that a week before the event was accept- 
able. "] couldn't get the music before then," 
she said. 

According to Crosier, planning for the Fling 
began two weeks before it took place. 

However, in view of the problems involved 
with planning, some students thought the 
Fling went well. 

Ken Norton said he had fun because there 
were many of his friends there. 

Food was provided at the event, as well as 
"Three Stooges" films. There was a best 
50's couple and bubble gum blowing contest. 

"I enjoyed myself, because I got involved," 
said Suzanne Lettrick. 

The Fling is a "good idea which should be 
allowed to grow," said Franklin Farrow. 

Still, those who thought the party "flopped" 
have begun showing their concern for the 
Fall Festival and Beach Party, both upcom- 
ing SA events. 

"If this is the quality of the organization 
and enierlainment. we're in trouble," said a 
student who wished lo remain anonymous. 
However, White said all is "running 
smoothly" for both events. "Annelte Crosier 
is capable of giving them what ihey want," 
he said.

d. "And it leads to

Elam said that each student should make

in mind what he wants to ask. 

The final second sememsler class sched- 
ule will likely be availabel Oct 22. ac- 
cording to Cherie Smith, secretary to the

While juniore and seniors may be wor- 
ried about not getting the classes they want, 
Elam doesn't foresee many problems. 
However, she said that it's important "to 
lake the initiative" on registering early. 
Nikki Viilars. senior public relations ma-

dents to do their part." 

Southern College to 

Complete Accreditation 

"Exam" By 1992 

As students look over their mid-term grades 
and plan their strategy for finals. Southern 
College is doing the same. 

Every 10 years SC must obtain re-accredi- 
tation from the Southern Association of 
Schools and Colleges. Southern College's 
"final" comes in 1992, along with the col- 
lege's centennial. 

Accreditation is important for the college 
10 operate. It allows for a college's programs 
and majors to be recognized and respected 

Unlike students that get a final grade, ac- 
creditation is an ongoing process that looks 
at how the college is meeting the objectives 
that it has set for itself. In 1992, a committee 
from the Southern Association of Schools 
and Colleges will come on campus and re- 
view the college based on a comprehensive 
self-analysis report compiled by the college. 

The steering committee for accreditation 
this time is headed by Dr. Jan Haluska of the 
English department. The purpose of the 
steering committee is to coordinate nine other 
subcommittees which look into every aspect 
of the entire college, from the administration 
to the physical plant maintenance. 

Each committee is assigned a specific area 
of college operation. The committees are 
instructed to analyze their respective areas 
and find the good points in that area, as well 
as those points which need help. 

When a subcommittee has collected all the 
necessary data about a department, they 
proceed to make notes on the areas that are 
going well and need to be commended. If an 
area needs improvements, the committee is 
responsible For making specific 

dations on how problems can be solved. - 

There is one particular committee which 
should be of interest to students: the sub- 
committee for Student Development Serv- 
ices, headed by Dr. Marvin Robertson of the 
music department. This committee is respon- 
sible for studying all aspects of student life 
here on campus. These areas include, but are 
not restricted to, academic advising, counsel- 
ing programs, the SA and its activities, the 
dorms, and even intramural athletics. 

Robertson has a positive approach to the 
program. "We're not after people, nor out to 
make changes. We want to see how to make 
things better," he said. 

This is exactiy what the accreditation pro- 
gram is designed for. Schools are encour- 
aged to do extensive self-evaluations and find 
all the good and bad points about the institu- 

When the actual evaluation by the South- 
em Association of Schools and Colleges does 
take place, they will look at school perform- 
ance. If the Association finds areas which 
still need improvement, die college has five 
years to make the necessary changes. 

Fortunately, if there are certain areas which 
need improvements, the college benefits from 
implementing the change as soon as possible. 
This will refiect positively when the evalu- 
ations are done in 1992. 

While many people are unaware of these 
committees on campus, many people are 
actively involved. About 80 faculty mem- 
bers comprise the steering committee and the 
nine sub-committees. The faculty is joined 
by college board members and student repre- 
sentatives on each committee.

Planning Continues 

for Accounting 

Masters Program 

Senatey ro, 

accounting master's degree pro- 
gram will begin in the fall semes- 
ter of 1991 or 1992. according to 
Business Administration Depart- 
ment Chairman Wayne Vande- 

"The Tennessee legislature has 
voted that after 1992, candidates 
for the CPA exam must have five 
years of college," said Vande- 
Vere. He said that since the extra 
year is required, students might 
as well get their master's degrees. 

At present, only Tennessee and 
Florida have this requirement. 
But other states may adopt it as 
well. "The program will con- 

tinue the tradition of excellence 
that Southern graduates have 
achieved in CPA exams," said 

The new program will require 
at least one new accounting pro- 
fessor with a doctorate degree, 
and the purchase of additional 
related hbrary materials. 

The program will begin the 
summer after a student's regular 
graduation date and continue into 
the fall and spring semester. The 
program will consist of 30 hours 
of advanced auditing, financial 
analysis, accounting theory, and

the conflict among the officers

that makes the senate happy." 

Also approved by the senate 
was a proposed styrofoam re-

was passed unanimously. 

The resolution recommends an 
alternative to styrofoam be ex-

"We want to be

"If the SA can replace sty:

for pre-law students," he said. 

The idea for such a minor came 
to McArthur last spring. "There 
is no one course required for 
entrance into law schools — it's 
all very open. Students have less 
guidance. This [minor] is an 
attempt to identify the courses that 
seem to develop what can be most 
useful to students in law school." 
he said. 

Students have received the idea 
of this program well, said 

"It's good. Before I wasn't sure 
what I need, but it's easier for me 
now because I don't have to take 
a double major," said Greg Glass. 
He said that without the pre-law 
minor he would have to take a 
history major in addition to his 
business major. Now "you can 
add the minor into your schedule 
and just take your business ma- 
jor. It makes it open for more 
students who don't want to take a 
double major," he added. 

McArthur also cited a growing 
number of students interested in 
pre-law as a reason for thinking 
about a need for the minor. How- 
ever, he said the minor is open 
for all students, which is why it is 
called political economy instead 

The new program has been ap- 
proved by the Academic Affairs 
Committee and was scheduled 
Wednesday for approval by fac- 
ulty senate. One reason why the 
go ahead has been so smooth is 

Getting ready for 
Weekend. Many 
Southern College 
alumni will be

Oct. 26 and 27 for

gram, said McArthur. 

maybe aren't completely sure 
about the major, but every long- 
term health care major, no matter 
what grade, can benefit from 
chapter membership," said Edens. 

Each chapter member still re- 
ceives newsletters and journals 
that will help them become fa- 
miliar with the current issues and 
terminology in nursing home 
administration, the chance to at- 
tend seminars and conventions, 
and networking opportunities. 

"The biggest advantage to the 
long-term health care student is 
that the American College will 
take each student's resume and 
match it with jobs they know are 
available. Not that our students 
have had any problems finding i 
jobs if they want them, but this 
is another avenue of finding a 
job through a professional or- 
ganization," Rozell said. 

The annual student dues are I 
$25. "I think they are getting a I 
real bargain. They're getting 
all these benefits — everything a 
licensed administrator is get- 
ting," said Rozell. 

Students do not have to join 
the American College chapter 
to be in the LTHC club. "As far 
as the club is concerned, we're 
still in the embryo stage," Edens 

Edens said the club was formed 
as a sort of support group and 
learning organization rather than 
a social club. "We just felt like if 
you can get your feet wet before 
you get to the summer sessions, 
you'll have a great advantage." 

The club aims to help members 
begin networking, become famil- 
iar with the terminology, and 
share information back and forth 
with other LTHC majors. "We 
were a little overwhelmed and 
unprepared for the intensity when 
we were starting out," Young 
said. "I wish we had had an 
opportunity like this." 

According to Edens, LTHC is 
one of the few campus majors 
that gets such exposure to the 
industry. Southern has teamed 

up with several long-term health 
care corporations to train leaders 
to fill administrative posts. The 
summer sessions, taken after the 
student junior year,-are taught by 
working administrators. "You 
can learn a lot from someone who 
is actually a professional in the 
field. You know that they know 
what they are talking about," 
Edens said. 

Southern has a reputation of 
having one of the best LTHC 
programs in the Adventist col- 
lege system. "This chapter 
membership can only add to our 
credibility," Edens said. 

"There's no doubt in my mind 
where I'm going," Young said, 
"and I feel this membership is 
going to help me get there."H 

Club Vice President Bob

Letters to the Editors r a 

Article Was Misplaced 

Dear editors: 

I'm curious why your recent article, 
"Board Considers Changing Southern 
College to University." received front-page 
coverage. This article reported thai the 
university issue was discussed and voted 
against by the Southern College faculty 
and that "presently, no one is proinoting or 
opposing the idea." if this last statement is 
correct, why would an article about some- 
thing ihai is currently a "non-issue" appear 
on the front page of the newspaper? As 
one of a majority of the faculty who 
oppose university status, I find the front- 
page placement of this article objection- 
able. Whether intended or noL such 
placement promotes the university concept 
without providing readers with the benefit 
of a full discussion of the relevant issues. 
I trust that future articles which address 
this issue will receive more balance cover- 
age and treatment. 

On a positive note, the quality of writing 
and the breadth of coverage for this year's 
Accent seem commendable. Keep up the 

I Can Finally Pray 

Dear Editors: 

Something has bothered me during the 
previous two years here at Southern. 
During these two years I have been a 
resident of Taige Hall. 

During worships. I have always won- 
dered why the R.A.s needed to walk up to 
the front during closing prayer to pick up 
the worship cards. I thought this was 
extremely irreverent and unnecessary. If 
we could not wail the extra 15 seconds it 
look for the R.A.s to walk up after prayer, 
then we shouldn't have come in the first 

When I came back this year. I was 
greeted with a pleasant surprise. The 

until the prayer 
walk up to the front. 

I want to thank the deans for changing 
the way worship is done. It really adds a 
lot to the atmosphere. Now during prayer, 
we can pay attention to the prayer instead 
of the R.A.s coming down the aisle to pick 
up our cards.

Toss and T\irn, Toss and l\irn 

Dear Editors: 

!f you live in Thatcher Hall, have you 
ever had an experience like mine? 

At night, while in bed. you toss and turn 
trying to find a comfortable position. You 
want to fall into your "fantasy land" away 
from the cold reality of getting an F on 
your next tesL But you realize that it is 
impossible to fulfill this because of the fear 
of being swallowed by your own bed. 

After many hours of trying to stay 
awake, your body gives in. The next thing 
you know, it's time to get up. In your 
effort to get up, you discover that your 
back has taken a new shape — that of a 
camel's back. 

Living this experience night after night, 1 
wonder how my future health will be like. 

I believe that we as dorm residents who 
pay a big sum of money to attend a private 
college should have the chance to get our 
rest on a firm bed. not on one that sinks 
when you lay on it. 

No doubt thousands of dollars have been 
spent for the renovations of the Thatcher 
lobbies. Sure, it all looks color-coordi- 
nated—the couches, lamps, tables, chairs, 
wall hangings, etc., giving it a homy look, 
but does it fulfill our immediate need of 
good rest? 

Maybe the next thing on the list of 
renovations should be purchasing new 

Let's not concentrate on having luxuries 
that don't affect us directly, and lean 
toward practical goals that could save one 
from chronic back problems.

' Recently, there has been some discussion 
I involving the activities of the Smdent As- 
' sociation. Specifically, we are addressing 
' the 50',s Fling party of a couple weeks 
I ago- 
Each year the Student Association is re- 
sponsible for providing activities for the* 
students. TTiis year, of course, is no excep- 
tion. Under the leadership of the social 
vice-president, the social activities are 
made for the enjoyment of the students. 

Contrary to popular belief, the social ac- 
tivities are only a part of the responsibili- 
ties of the Student Association. Therefore. 
the funds allocated to these activities are 
not very substantial 

There reportedly was some discontent 
with the 50's Fling party. Some were dis- 
appointed with die party and the way il 

These complaints might have been justi- ; 
fied, but we also think the students need to i 
know the background to this party. 

In past years, the Student Association has 
sponsored a Scavenger HunL The turnout i 
to this was very minimal. In fact, it was ! 
almost non-existent. Realizing this prob- 
lem, this year's S.A. decided to try some- ' 
thing different. The idea of a 50's Fling 
was decided upon. 

Tlie 50's Fling, unlike the upcoming 
Beach Party, wa.s a relatively small activ- 
ity. We believe much of the discontent ' 
over the party came from those who com- , 
pared this to the larger S.A. events. 
Granted, this was not a terrifically exciting i 
party, but iI wa.s never meani to be a big 

By slariing this idea, maybe future Slu- 
dcnt Associations can improve on the idea.

the atlempi to tr>' something dilferent. 
Maybe wc should stop complaining and 
start complimenting — perhaps even stiui 
encouraging— our S.A.-The Editors

f y To Be or Not to Be 

'N^Nff/ a University 

e Hanson 

The October 4 Southern 
Accent carried a front-page 
headline which gave the im- 
pression that Southern College 
might soon become Southern 
University. The article itself 
gave an accurate recent history 
of the name-change discussion, 
a history which hardly justifies 
the headline. 

President Sahly has created 
an atmosphere on campus in 
which differing views on issues 
such as university status can be 
aired openly and thoroughly. 
This matter was discussed at 
length by the faculty last school 
: year. Although the College 
I Board will make the final 
! decision, public debate by 
' students and faculty influences 
; [he Board and contributes to a 
j more informed decision. The 
faculty had their say last year. 
By publishing an article on the 
! subject and asking me to 
j respond, the Soulheni Accent is 
bringing these issues before the 
' students. 

1 feel uncomfortable about 
Southern College assuming the 

title of university for the sake 
of the prestige the title brings. 
Genuine prestige can't be 
assumed — ^it must be earned. If 
we claim to be something we 
are not, only the uninformed 
will be impressed. Others will 
simply see us as pretentious. I 
don't think the trade-off would 
be worth it. 

I am reminded of a friend in 
California years ago. Ralph got 
a job selling hearing aids. The 
company gave him a couple 
days of hearing aid training at 
the end of which he was given 
the title doctor along with 
business cards with his name 
and title prominently engraved 
upon them. There is no law 
against assuming the title of 
doctor. Many people do it. 
Yet I was uncomfortable with 
the ethics of Ralph's action. I 
thought less of him for doing it. 
I don't want people feeling that 
way about Southern College. 

A large number of schools 
have changed their name 
college lo university in r 
years. Many, especially 

colleges, have grown from 
traditional colleges to large 
multipurpose institudons with 
several graduate and profes- 
sional programs. In these cases 
a change in status is warranted. 
Others, mostly small private 
colleges, have simply assumed 
the title of university. They are 
the Ralphs of higher education. 

Let's proudly accept our 
status as a college. We have 
some very prestigious com- 
pany — Oberiin College, Rollins 
College, Pomona College, 
Smith College, and Berea 
College to name a few. These 
colleges have limited their 
programs to what they consider 
important and to what they can 
do well. They, along with 
many other colleges, are sig- 
nificant institutions. 

I think Southern College 
should continue to focus on the 
undergraduate needs of young 
adults in the Southern Union 
and elsewhere. We must 
continue to provide these 
students with a high quality 
academic program. However, 
the academic program alone 
makes us neither significant nor 
unique. Our significance and 
uniqueness lie in the setting of 
the academic program. We 
attempt to provide a total 
environment which meaning- 
fully and attractively reinforces 
the commitment lo the Church 
and its teachings our students 
bring to them. We attempt to 
provide a curriculum which is 
compatible with Biblical teach- 

ings and which prepares stu- 
dents for responsible citizen- 
ship. We attempt to employ 
teachers who are genuinely 
concerned about their students' 
present, future, and eternal 
well-being. We attempt to 
provide a social environment 
which is both enjoyable and 
uplifting — an environment 
which leads to a netwofk of 
life-long friends who share 
beliefs and values. Our goal 
should be to do this better and 
to make the SC experience 
available to more undergradu- 

To simply assume the tide of 
university would, in my opin- 
ion, contribute nothing to the 
attainment of this goal. It 
would raise a question of 
institutional integrity in the 
minds of many. To expand the 
program to die point of justify- 
ing the ritle would be even 
worse; it would undermine the 
goal. We simply don't have 
5ie resources to do justice to 
both undergraduate and gradu 
ate programs. Graduate educa- 
tion is far more expensive and 
far less a part of our mission 
than undergraduate education. 
Funding for it can only come £ 
a cost to the undergraduate 

Southern College is a good 
school. There are undoubtedly 
many changes that would make 
it better. However, I have yet 
to be convinced that a change 
to university status is one of 

What This Campus Needs is a Little Home Entertainment 

Has thi! 
you? You are without a car 
and wandering around the 
I Southern College campus on a 
: Saturday night with absolutely 
nothing to do. You've already 
cleaned out your goldfish tank 
; and flossed your dog's teeth. 
I Nothing has been planned for 
the students, K.R.'s Place is 
closed and not even a Humani- 
, ties fdm is showing. There's a 
hot violin concert running full 
steam in Ackerman. but that's 
! not your idea of Saturday night 
i fun. Giving up, you hit the 
, books. Ten minutes later you 
I hit the hay. There goes your 
I Saturday night. 

Chances are. this happens to 
many of us. But what makes it 
i worse is that it doesn't have to 
! be this way. There's plenty of 
j fun the entire student body can 
I have every Saturday night. For 
I example, we say let's show 
j movies on campus. Why not? 
There's no hiding the fact that 
! many SC students go to the 
; theater these days. Movies are 
I a very popular pan of Ameri- 
! can entertainment. It would be 
naive to say some of us aren't 
caught up in it. Mention the 
word "movie" and we conjur 
up fabulous images of our 
I favorite .stars acting out excit- 
■ ing and 

With all that said, we beheve 
Southern College, with a 
consistent entertainment pro- 
gram, could become as big a 
box office draw for students as 
the local theaters. 

This idea is not widiout a 
benefit or two. For instance, if 
the movies were brought here, 
wouldn't it be better and safer 
than driving many students off 
campus when there's nothing to 
do? There's no telling where 
some students go to find "fun"' 
on Saturday nights— and wind 
up in some .sort of trouble. It's 
easy to understand why the 
dorm rules and curfews are 
strict — and strictly enforced. 
We're not saying the rules will 
bend, but if the majority of 
Talge and Thatcher residents 
had something fun to do every 
Saturday night here, perhaps 
the deans' jobs, or at least their 
worries, would be somewhat 
eased Saturday night. Most 
importantly, the temptation 
would be less for students to 
leave Collegedale, where the 
intluence of our Adventist 
environment is absent. 

Before the administration gets 
nervous, we're not talking "R" 
rated movies or the like. We 
don't believe one student here 
needs to have ingredients like 
violence, sex and vulgarity in 

son of TV in the living room, 
if you will. Never mind that 
the community or alumni might 
be aghast at this idea. We. the

the potential to entertain all

"Honey, i Shrunk the Kids," is 
a perfect example. Tlie fact 
that many in the community 
brought dieir children to watch 
it is indicative of its being 
clean entertainment — the kind

It's Not 
MY Fault! 

Imagine, if you will, a typical Sunday 
at Southern College. You have been in 
your room ail day studying and decide 
you need a break. So you grab your 
basketball shoes and head to the gym- 

You enter the gym to the typical loud 
yells and screams of enthusiastic ball 
players. But wait, nobody is running 
up and down the court. The scene you 
are greeted with is one that resembles 
the tense moments before a gang fighL 
One person is holding the ball while 
three or four others try lo force their

that 10 people thrown together to play

As Seventh-day Adventisis, we 
should act differently towards our 
fellow man in every situation. Tlie 
way wc approach the situation is the 
crucial decision. Don't act like a crime

ally. Harsh words provoke resistance, 
so control your emotions. Try giving 
the benefit of the doubt, sometimes. 
After all, maybe you are wrong. 

Let's not forget the reason for games. 
Did we come to increase our vulgar vo- i

DeAnn Champion 

By Angel Echemendia and Timothy Burrill 

RUNNING, BIKING, swimming, and 
snowskiing are just a few of the activities 
DeAnn Champion participates in. 

DeAnn graduated from Shenandoah 
Valley Academy in 1988. She came to 
Southern College to major in psychology 
andpre-medicine. Each year DeAnn has 
played intramural sports. 

DeAnn keeps really busy. She edited 
the Joker this year, along with being pre- 
med club president. But she always has 
time for sports. 

Her favorite sport is softball. During 
the past Softball season, DeAnn played 
second base. 

The speed she acquires from playing 
sports she will put to good use. Her 
future plans include going to Loma Linda 
University School of Medicine, 
would then like to enter the field of 
emergency medicine. 

"I believe God is leading in my life. 
He helps me both mentally and physi- 
cally," said DeAnn. 

When asked about her busy schedule, 
DeAnn said, "I know if it wasn't for my 
daily devotions. I'd never get through 
my day."

Ben McArthur 

MOST OF us know Dr. 
McArthur as a very intense his- 
tory teacher. However, this same 
intensity for academics spills over 
into his favorite pastime: tennis. 
Forced to retire from Softball and 
flagball, he currently concentrates 
his efforts on tennis. To prepare 
for the season he engages in a 
modest running pro- 
gram. "Running is 
loo much like work 
though," he says, "I 

ily do it for endur- 

ice training." 
When asked who 
he likes to model his 
_s game after, he 
said he would like to 
have the serve of 
Peter Sampras, the 
forehand of Ivan 
Lendal, the back- 
hand of Stefan 
Edbcrg, and the vol- 
ley of John McEn- 

As for Dr. 
McAnhur's diet, he 
recommends three 
meals per day, espe- 
cially a good break- 
fast, and lotsof des- 

There exists a complex relation- 
ship between the spiritual and the 
physical aspects of a person, 
according to Dr. McArthur. 
"Physical health is an 'aid' lo 
spirituality, yet even with a 
chronic illness, such as in Ellen 
White's case, a person may 
more usable by the Lord," s 

Dr. McArthur just gives a little 
advice to college students: "Date 
a history major!"

on Giving 
Double the PR 

)' Tammy Wotcaii 

The budget for the SA public 
relations department has been 
doubled, according to Darin Ste- 
wart, SA finance director. 

"The past PR departments were 
not adequate enough," said 
Woody White, SA president. 
Students need to know every- 
thing the SA does." 

However. Jeannie Bradley, last 
year's PR director, asks, "What 
they going to do with ail the 
money?" She said last year' 
bulletin boards were changed i 
least once a month and every flyer 
sent out came fiom her budgei 
"I was realty under budget." she 

But with the budget increase, 
Kevin Snider, this year's direc- 
tor, plans to give double the PR. 
"More obnoxious skits in chapel. 
a banner to hang over the railing 
of Brock Hall, and for long- 
goals, we're tliinking of putting 
up something like Ae Watlside 
Journal in the Campus Kitchen," 
said Snider. 

Snider has two public relations 
staff members. Brenda Pooley, 
sophomore broadcasting major 
and Tammy Durretle. a freshman 
psychology major. 

Pooley is in charge of the 
Wallside Journal. 

"It is updated daily," said 
Snider. "We also put peoplt '

TTie S A has four bulletin boards. 
One on the Promenade, two in 
the student center, and another in 
the stairwell between the cafete-

wooden stands will be placed 
along the Promenade, said Snider. 
Also, "a revived SA 'What's 
Happening' line is in progress," 
said Snider. After four years of 
nonexistence. Snider has started 
the 24-hour service, updated daily

Collegiate Missions 

Sponsors International 

Food Fair 

By Kare 

"THE HEARTBEAT of our Mission" is the theme 
of the 1990 International Food Fair, to be held on 
Oct. 28 in the Spalding Elementary gym. The Fair 
will run from noon to 6 p.m. and will feature foods 
and entertainment from places such as Italy, the 
Orient, Micronesia, Mexico, and Germany. 

The International Food Fair is sponsored by die 
Collegiate Missions Club of Southern College and 
area churches. The money raised goes to student 
missionaries. It is the club's biggest fundraiser of 
die year. 

Miya Wenzel, this year's Fair coordinator, is a 
fomier student missionary to Korea. "This is a 
good way to catch a glimpse of the mission field 
and to feel like you're in a small way a part of it," 
she said. 

Collegiate Missions Club President Ingiid Eklund 
said, "I just want people to know that by coming 
and eating at the Fair, they can support student 
missionaries. Where else can you eat from six 
different countries in one meal?" she added, 

Each student may charge up to $7 on his or her 
I.D. card at the Fair. According to Wenzel, prices 
will be comparable to those in the cafeteria. 

Entertainment will include cultural shows from 
the Orient. 

Shannon Bom, former student missionary to the 
Marshall Islands, is in charge of entertainmenl. "We 
appreciate all the people who are willing to donate 
their talents and lime to help send student mission- 
said Bom. 

Tennis Club Begins Weekly 
Ladder Tournament 

THE TENNIS Club will begin just as soon as the 
school tournament is over. A weekly "challenge 
ladder" of play will be set up in which participants 
play people on their level of skill. Anyone inter- 
ested in joining should contact Kevin Snider at 238- 

Southern's Gallery to Feature 
the Work of Wayne Eastep 

WAYNE EASTEP, professional pho- 
tographer and 1 970 graduate of Southern 
College, will visit the campus from Oct. 
25-27 as the journalism department's 
featured guest. An exhibit of his work 
will be displayed at die art gallery on the 
second floor of Brock Hall. 

The exhibit, running from Oct, 25 until 
Dec. 15, will include photos taken for the 
book THE LIVING SEAS, his conuner- 
cial photography, and his work on the 
Bedouin nomads in Saudi Arabia. 

After graduating from Soudiem, Eas- 
tep went on to earn a Master of Divinity 
degree at Union Theological Seminary in 
New York. In 1978, he began a three- 
year photography apprenticeship in New

SA President Woody White 
Reveals Environment Resolution 

The following proposal was submitted to the SA senate 
and approved at the Oct. 10 senate meeting 

Whereas Uie production of styrofoam uses 
oil and increases our dependence on 
foreign imports, and whereas styrofoam 
is non-biodegradable, thus adding tremen- 
dously to the amount of disposable mate- 
rial that we use, and wereas styrofoam is 
produced with chloroflurocarbons 
(CFC's) which deplete the ozone layer, 
and when not produced with CFC's, is 
produced with other toxic materials, be it 
resolved by the unanimous vote of the 
senate of the SASCSDA on this 10th day 
of Oct., 1990. Therefore, this recom- 

mendation to the administration and 
Food Service of Southern College, from 
this body, that other alternatives to sty- 
rofoam be explored with the purpose of 
replacing it in our food services divi- 
sion; be it further resolved, therefore, 
that we as a senate body do affirm our 
to the cause of increased 
; about our responsibilities to 
the world around us and do encourage 
the administration of Southern College 
to help us in our efforts.

he fiFSi thing that abso- 
luiely blew my mind when I 
emerged from Hackman HaJl 
on this blustery afternoon (a 
situation caused, we're told, 
by tropical storm "Marco" 
pushing up against (he 
Arkansas cold front) was the sight of Suzy 
Mazat cutting Glen Sullivan's hair on the 
STiident Center porch. Glen, witli his arms 
piilkd inside his henna and green T-shirt (a 
ni-iiural barber apron), seemed to be taking 
ir ail in stride amidst much chatter about: 
"Stubborn cow-iicks. birds using the hair

[oniorrow be a real blast?" Witnesses of 
ihis hirsute ritual included: Mike Lorren 
(.all in green), Jennifer Thielen (our token 
■California raisin"), and Brian Wilbur 

Proceeding down the promenade past the 
various white, purple, and pink omamentit! 
cabbage plants, which seem to be the big 
rage with nurserymen this year, I ran into 
Darin Stewart, SA treasurer, all smiles 
because he was quite sure "the senate 
would pass the budget tonight." Met three 
strollers (David Beckworth, Mike Colhran. 
and Jennifer HamiJton) who were terribly 
concerned with the weather- Did you 
know that there are 13 Jennifers at SC this 
year? (JH is the daughter of Dr. Ted and 
Jackie Hamilton, whom I taught way back 
when — great family.) 

Down by the "world's most lavishly 
constructed bulletin board" (ornamental 
sfone slabs and elegant masonry plus its 
own little shingled roof), I caught up with 
Lisa Bartram and Angie Wotring all 
decked out in denim jeans and pink and 
maroon tops — they admitted they had been 
: late to everything today. Chris Inder- 
muehle nearby was pondering the legality 
of the secession of the southern states from 
the Union. Well, everybody has to think 

about something! 

Near So Ju Conian Hall, Jeff Wood 
(from Alabama) and Rochelle Battislone 
(in vivid red and paisley — goes with the 

hair) puffed 

see~a huge triangle 33x24x24 foot (that's 
just a rough estimate). And just beyond 
that is the best water fountain on campus — 
coldest water and highest spout—which 
resembles an Old Testament alter. It 
suddenly struck me that it was absolutely 
appropriate for a fountain that close to the 
religion department and the Garden of 
Prayer to be shaped like an altar. 

file bridges and porches along the upper 
floors of Brock Hall are vantage points 
from which to watch the progress the 
autumn colors have made on the trees in 
the valley and hills beyond. So far, not too 
much progress — it'll be two more weeks 
before the leaf-tuming is at its peak. But 
according to reliable sources {USA Today. 
Southern Living, and your weather station, 
Channel 29), this should be an outstanding 
"color year." What causes the colors, 
anyway? Well, the abscission layer devel- 
ops at the base of each petiole or leaf stem, 
which slowly cuts off water to the leaf; the 
chlorophyll begins to die and the colors 
already present in the leaf express them- 

selves. It's a subtle, 
involving the 
nature of the 
autumnal humidity that produces this 
annual glorious display. Trees to watch: 
the orange-red maple trees in front of 
Spalding Elementar>\ the dark red dog- 
woods around the Spanish Church, and the 
brilliant, red. small, bush-like trees along 
the Press and Laundry. 

And if that's not enough, we still need to 
savor: golderu-ods along the roads, pump- 
kins lined up in roadside stands along with 
apples and squash, hay stacks and com 
shocks piled against wooden fences, fall 
festivals, antique shows, flea markets, and 
bonfires, and finally, southward migrations 
of Sandhill Cranes and Canada Geese. 
Some or all of these events will soon take

After attending San Francisco City Col- 
lege, a branch of the University of California. 
Hefferlin attended Pacific Union College. 
California Tech is where he completed his 
graduate work. 

"The same family with whom I stayed 
during the summers helped me meet my wife. 
They took us on a hiking trip. I'm very sen- 
timental about mountains and I became very 
sentimental about her." 

Two years later Inelda and Hefferiin were 
married. One year later in 1955, Hefferlin 
found himself at Southern College. 

Dr. Hefferlin chuckled when he relayed, 
"We (he and his wife) were so young thai we 
got scolded for walking on campus holding 
hands. People knew that we were married." 

Hefferiin witnessed not only social changes 
brought about by 35 years of service, but 
student and campus growth as well. 

"When I first arrived here the whole valley 
was a farm," he stales. "In the place where 
Thatcher Hall is there was a huge airplane 
hanger-shaped building that held the campus 
store, sandwich bar, etc. Also, students didn't 
have cars. Only a very few upperclassmen 
could afford them." 

In 1976, Hefferlin took a sabbatical leave 
and went lo Oakridge to study to go to the 
Soviet Union. He was part of the National 
Academy of Science exchange program.

Soviet culture is different and is changing

Uid you know...? 

Why does Mickey Mouse have 
only four fingers? In fact, why 
is virtually every cartoon animal 
beset with two missing digits? 

Disney employees confirm that 
Mickey Mouse has four fingers 
because it is convenient for the 
artists and animators who have to 
draw him. In the early cartoons, 
each frame was hand-drawn by 
-painstaking and 

tedious work? No part of the 
human anatomy is harder to draw 
than a hand, and it is difficult to 
draw distinct fingers without 
making the whole hand look quite 

TTie artists who drew Mickey 
were more than happy to go along 
with any conceit that saved them 
some work. So in Disney and 
most other cartoons, the animals 

sport a thumb and three finger 
while humans, such as Sno 
White, are spared' the amputation. 
And before you ask — no. no one 
really knows which of Mickey's 
fingers got lopped off for the sake 
of convenience. Since the three 
nonthumbs on each hand

think it was the pinkie that \

Spalding Elementary was the place to be

prefered good old American cooking, a booth 
representing the United States offered hot 
dogs and apple pie. 

However, the Food Fair was more than a 
world-scale buffet, it was also a fund r^ser, 
directed by Southern's Collegiate Missions 
Club, for student missionaries. 

"I was very pleased with the turnout," said

president. She said the Fair brought in over 

Twelve countries were represented by vari- 
ous booths set up inside the Spalding gym. 
Booths were decorated to portray the home- 
lands they represented, and the servers dressed 
up in native costumes. 

Each booth was stocked with a vanety of 
exotic foods from noon to 6 p.m., to be 
sampled by the hungry crowd. Mexican 
burritos, Italian lazagna, Danish funnel cake, 
Dutch ice cream, Indian cury, and tropical 
drinks were just a few dishes served. 

Much of the food was prepared and do- 
nated by various international Seventh-day 
Adventist churches from the surrounding area. 
All proceeds support the student missions 

"I enjoy it every year," said Kristie Brown.

Journalism Club 
Seeks Society 

By Brenda Piioley 

LAST YEAR brought about flie begin- 
nings of the Southern College's joumaiism 
chib, a product of the haid work of commu- 
nicaiions students and journaJism faculty 
R Lynn Sauls, chaimiaD, Pam Harris, and 
Volker Heraung. Since that time the club 
has broadened its goals both professionally 
arid socially. 

The professional aspect is still being 
■/.'OTked on, said Sauls, for the club wants to 
become a chapter of a journalists societ>'. 
The club apphed to the Society of Profes- 
sional Journalists (SPJ), but, according to 
Sauls, membership is allowed only for edi- 
(oria! and broadcasting majors. Therefore, 
public relations roajora cannot be a pan of 
the chapter. 

"The journalism club decided that we 
should look for a society that includes ev- 
eryone," said Sauls. However, he said thai 
(here are rumors the SPJ is expanding to 
include PR majors. If this is true, the club 
is planning to join, he said. 

Daryl Cole, president of the journalism 
club, said the reasons for wanting to join a 
society is because "it looks good on a res- 
Sauls said it will also enhance the stu- 
dents professionally, as well. 

The club is also planning to make social 
activities a bigger part of the year's events. 
One of the upcoming events is a trip to At- 
lanta to visit CNN headquarters, said Sauls. 

■'We are also uying to raise money to go 
on a ski trip," said Cole. He said the club 
is in the process of deciding how to raise 
funds for the trip. So far, the club has sold 
credit cards as a means of raising money. 

Both Sauls and Cole are excited about the 
new expansions in the journalism club and 
are looking forward to seeing what the 
future may hold.

Destiny Plans Another Year of Ministry 

BUSY SCHEDULES are nothmg new to 
Destiny Drama Co., and this year is no ex- 
ception. Destiny's first performance was at 
Thatcher Sabbath School Oct. 27, and the 
second will be tomorrow, Nov. 2, at the 
Gymnastics Chnic. 

The Destiny Drama Co. is part of the out- 
reach program of SC's C.A.R.E. Ministries. 
Under the direction of Craig Moore, the 
members are preparing for another season. 

The remaining portion of this semester's 
schedule includes a performance for SC's 
Student Week of Prayer, and another at 
Thomlinson College in Cleveland, Tenn. 

Second semester, the group will perform at 
two youth rallies, held by the Georgia-Cum- 
berland and Carolina conferences. A Spring 
Break tour will take them out of the SouUiem 
Union to an Ohio Youdi Rally and a perform- 
ance at Kettering College. To complete the 
semester. Destiny will perform a few pro- 
grams in the surrounding community, and 
will end the year with dieir annual Home 

The themes of Destiny's sketches revolve 

around fundamental Christian ideals, mosdy 
interpersonal human relationships and the 
relationship between people and God. 

"It bothers me when people tell us what a 
good acting job we did, because I'm more 
concerned whether the message of the sketch 
got through," said Moore. 

Moore is optimistic about this year's per- 
formances, and says he has a "talented group 
of students diat are dedicated to Destiny and 
to God." 

This year's group has five returning mem- 
bers and ten new members. The members for 
this year are: Rochelle Battistone, Johnny 
Bennett, Jeanie Bradley, Delton Chen, Sheela 
Choppola, Tamara Dmrette, Tricia Greene, 
Lori Pettibone, Jeffrey Kovalski, Rick Mann, 
Moore, Robert Neall, Maria Rodriguez, 
Mickey Sayles, and Paul Villegas. 

Three faculty members assist Moore with 
Destiny's activities. The administrative 
sponsor is Dr. Don Dick, the faculty advisor 
is Elder Jim Herman, and Joi Richards is 
traveling sponsor.

Scribbles. It will contain edited works submitted by students, fac- 
ulty, or the community. 

The club meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. in 
Room 147 in Brock Hall to discuss the manuscripts they are working 
on. They also invite guest speakers to talk about car^r opportunities 
and markets. 

"I initialed this club because I like to write a lot, and I have enough 
students who write well," said Pyke. "I am very interested in seeing 
people develop their skills and participate, even if they are noi an 
English major," she said.

"Elder Hostel Enjoys Southern Hospitality Food Fair, .. 

I THF CAMPUS took on an air of nostalgia 
tlSho^e week of October 14-20. One 
S have thought that he was caught up in 
Siming of "Caccoon-The Return to South- 
?mSege." This misconception may have 
teen caused by the 32 Elderhoste members 
who decided to spend their vacation here at 

^°Elde!lIostel is an educational program for 
retired adults who waiit to continue to ex- 
pand their horizons and to develop new inter- 
ests and enthusiasms. Every year. Southern 
College takes advantage of this opportunity 
by providing its services to others outside of 
1 the community. . , , , 

For a fee of $210, Elderhostel members 

I were provided with rooms in the Conference 

Center, meals in the cafeteria, attended classes 

in Lyrin Wood Hall, and participated in a 

J variety of extracurricular activities around 

I campus. Dean Kinsey, program director, 

I stated, "This project fits well into the mission 

and strategic planning of S.C. by being a 

I center of educational achievement, both re- 

giously and mentally. 

I While visiting S.C, Elderhostelers had 

plenty to keep them busy. They spent several 

J hours each day attending classes. Among the 

I classes offered were a creative writing class 

1 taught by Pam Harris; an understanding of 

the Civil War taught by Stan Hobbs; a study 

of the works in the Old Testament by Dr. 

I Douglas Bennett; and an organ class taught 

I by Judy Glass. "The quality of instructors 

I here (at Southern) is the best around," said 

I Elderhostel participant, Frank Gibson. "Why 

go anywhere else when everyone here is 
cordial, friendly, and smart?" 

When Elderhostelers were not in classes, 
they were busy with other activities. "We try 
no to let them stay idle very long," said Helen 
Bledsoe. As manager of the Conference 
Center, Bledsoe is in charge of organizmg 
and scheduling Elderhostel events. "They 
have so much planned for us, that 1 hardly 
have time to take a nap!" stated Elderhos- 
teler, Don Flory. 

The weeks' activities climaxed on Friday 
night with a special graduation service held 
in Ackerman Auditorium. A certificate of 
class completion was awarded to each Elder- 
hostel participant. 

S.C. has always received high evaluations 
from Elderhostelers in the past. They've 
expressed that they have been pleased with 
the friendliness of the students, the program, 
and the vegetarian food. "There is a lovely 
atmosphere here," said Elderhosteler partici- 
pant, Fred Eisner. "You don't feel rushed. 
The people here are friendlier and everything 
appears happy." 

Should anyone regret the fact that they did 
not have an opportunity to interact with some 
of the Elderhostel members while they were 
visiting the campus, a second (and even a 
third) chance will be provided. There will be 
two more Elderhostel groups visiting S.C. 
throughout this school year. "I think that 
S.C, among Tennessee colleges, has some- 
thing to offer," said Kinsey. "It's a great 
opportunity to expand our service as an

"Miya Wenzel did an excellent job coordi- 
nating the Fair," said Eklund. "It couldn't 
have been possible without all the help we 

had," she added. 

Sheela Choppala, left, and Mickey Sayles

dollars to help send student missionaries

Letters to the Editors 
Accent Was Too Negative 

Dear Editors: 

I just read the article "Students Express 
Mixed Feelings on 50's Fling; Censorship 
Issue, Activities are Factors" by Wayne 
Openshaw and Erich Stevens, OcL 18, 

During the two weeks of planning before 
the event. I watched Annette Crosier 
struggling with all of the details that go 
into something this big. She worked long 
hours, drove her car many miles picking up 
supplies and then spent extra time actually 
putting up decorations and chairs. It seems 
that many people signed up to help but 
very few actually showed. Some of her 
friends were there to help, but not many 
campus students showed a lot of interest in 
seeing that this event was successful. 

The article is very negative. It appears 
that many of the students simply wanted to 
show up and be entertained rather than 
helping to see that the evening was fun. 
However, taking a more positive attitude in 
your article would help to encourage 
success for future events rather than make 
such statements as "...those who thought 
the party 'flopped' have begun showing 
their concern for the Fall Festival and 
Beach Party..." It is unfair to call the 
event unsuccessftil and toss the blame on 
Annette. It takes everyone working to-

The Real Hackman Hall of Horrors 

Letters Continued... 

Dr. Smith's letter and Dr. Hanson's article 
have made me very curious about several 
things relating to the naming of an educa- 

1 ) If indeed the majority of the faculty is 
opposed to a name change for Southern, 
what reasons do they give for their opposi- 
tion? I heard one faculty member say that 
the majority of the vote was to discontinue 
a one-sided discussion of the topic rather 
than 10 oppose a name change. Why is 
some of the faculty opposed to a name 
change? What are the opposing viewpoints 
or arguments on the other side? 

2) Why was Dr. Smith with a bit of 
journalistic front-page news making? Is 
there more to the story than we have 
heard? (Haven't heard much of anything 
so far.) 

3) If "a large number of schools have 
changed their names from college to 
university in recent years," does Dr. Han- 
son's analogy of his friend Ralph's taking 
on a title and an institution's changing its 
name have the same kind of validity today 
that the same illustration might have had a 
few years ago? 

4) Someone must have had reasons for 
introducing a discussion about name 
changes. What prompted the discussion in 
the first place? 

5) Since this is such a non-threatening 
topic — to most of us anyway — why not 
keep the discussion going in the Accent^ 
Let's have a contest to see who can come 
up with the most appropriate name for oiu- 
school. Maybe we could even have an 
essay contest composed of three categories: 

a) best essay in defense of a name change, 

b) best essay in opposition to a name 
change, and c) best essay presenting a 
synthesis of arguments on both sides — 
maybe a journalist report of some kind. 
The journalism department might be 
willing to help out with judging papers. 
Let's have a little verbal fun here where 
we are supposed to value the exchange of 
ideas rather than squelching them. 

6) Encourage both students and faculty 
to write articles both for and against the 
idea of renaming Southern. I don't care 

whether you put the letters or articles on 
the front page or the back. I'd just like to 
be informed and maybe even entertained a 
bit. 1 agree with Dr. Smith on one point— 
the Accent is on its way this year.

Take Care of My Mail 

Dear Editors: 

I have been concenied about the way the 
mail is handled in Talge Hall for quite a 

i have received other people's mail many 
times throughout my stay here. And this 
leads me to believe that my mail is going 
to other's boxes sometimes. 

How am I supposed to know that some 
of this misplaced mail is not arriving in the 
correct box-even in the end? 

I think it's time to treat the mail more 
carefiilly. After all, it is a federal offense 
to purposely misplace the mail. I'm not 
accusing the desk workers of placing mail 
in the wrong box on purpose, but I do feel 
they should be more careful. 

Some may not think this is a big deal. I 
would just rather not have any of my 
order-by-mail antelope food going to 
someone else; or the leash for my cow not 
arriving in time to take her for a walk. But 
seriously, it really is infiringing on my 
privacy for my mail to be misplaced. My 
mail is personal— sometimes.

I Hell," had been adapted from 
the nation-wide Youth-to- 

■ Youth Christian Movement. 
Participants could select one of 

' three options: to be either a 
good or bad influencer or to be 
a blind-folded person influ- 

Having opted to be a good 

I I angel, I had successfully con- 

I vinced my academy student to 
' follow me to "heaven," a deci- 
1 sion he made by asking me 
j specific questions. Part of the 
[ rules were that I had to tell the 
' truth, but my counterparts, the 

evil angel influencers, could tell 
either the truth or lies. During 
the game, both types of angels 
would take hold of the arms of 
the blind-folded players, each 
angel then enticing through 
legitimate or devious persua- 
sion to pull a player to either 
"heaven" or "hell" area on 
opposite sides of the lawn. 

So that's how Jack, opting to 
be a person influenced, ended 
up in "hell," the victim of con- 
vincing lies his evil angel had 
enticed him with. 

The purpose of the game was 
to dramatize students' roles as 
influential people, fully capable 
of affecting the eternal destinies 
of their peers. In fact, so pow- 
erfully did the game impress 
the sophomore that had led my 
husband to "hell" that I noticed 
in round two the same boy 
decided to be a good angel, 
seeking out Jack and this time 
leading him triumphantly to 

And I'll have to admit that 

few games I have ever played 
have left such a powerful 
impression on me, too. One 
pastor who was also participat- 
ing told me that when he saw 
his son in "hell," it was almost 
more than he could stand — 
game or no game. 

But what about the game of 
life? Heaven and hell are then 
for real, for eternity. There is 
no taking off the blindfold and 
having another chance. 

"If the nose of Cleopatra had 
been shorter, the whole face of 
the earth would have been 
changed," said Pascal, the 
French philosopher and mathe- 
matician. His quote makes a 
clever case of the universal 
effects of famous people, but 
how about the rest of us — those 
here at SC? 

"The humblest individual ex- 
erts some influence, either good 
or evil, upon others," com- 
mented Henry Ward Beecher, 
famous American clergyman. 
The collegiate life offers sev- 
eral areas of influence — even 
for the humblest of students — 
mostly revolving around rela- 
tionships: teacher/pupil; friend/ 
friend; worker/employer. 

What influence do you have 
on your peers? Would you like 
to have a friend like yourself? 
Would you like your son or 
daughter to room with someone 
like you? 

What influence do you have 
as a student? Would you like 

to have yourself as a pupil? 
Would you hope one day that 
your children would adopt 
your study habits? 

What influence do you have 
as an employee? Would you 
hire yourself? Are you the 
kind of worker you would 
trust and maybe even promote 
if you were the boss? 

As you can imagine, the 
Bible has several texts on 
influence, as in Galations 
5:9 — "A little leaven leavenelh 
the whole lump." The Scrip- 
tures, too, realize the small 
and insignificant can have 
large and powerful implica- 

Last year I visited the Ala- 
bama State Prison for Women. 
After my husband's band had 
performed for the inmates, the 
prison warden took time to 
answer questions once we all 
were safely outside. When 
asked why most of the women 
were in the penitentiary, she 
said, "For two reasons — for 
drugs and for being accom- 
plices." How pathetic! These 
women in prison, home life 
ruined — all because they had 
succumbed to the wrong influ- 
ences of law-breaking friends. 
Yes, to be alive is to be in- 
fluential — for Heaven or for 
Hell. No such option as being 
neutral exists. Watch what 
you say and do — others are 
being positively or negatively 
influenced by your words and

filled with schoolwork and

While calmly reading my dry-

"What a stupid idea," I thought. 
"How could this be better than

Alumni Outlasts Students 86-73 

Not-So-Old Alumni Teaches S.C. Students 
How Experience Pays Off 

Is Winning 

It's not easy being the leader of a 
learn, any leam. whether you lead a 
group of workers or a fooIbaU team, 
your responsibJJily ranges from findhig 
the best for the job to motivator of each 
individual. Keeping this in mind, there 
still seems to be some major oversights 
by some of the captains in our intramu- 
ral program. 

It is a shame that sometimes a peraon 
ends up being captain of a team just be- 
cause he or she came and asked for it 
or is an exceptional player instead of 
taking into concideration his or her 
ability to lead a group of people. For 
the most part, the captains here at S.C. 
are acceptable but I have heard, and 
been a victim myseif, of inadequate 
leadership. It does take a certain 
personality to want to lead but all too 
often these same people may be too 
competitive. By this, I mean that a 
captain will watch during the first 
couple of games to see who his best 
players are and from then on relegate 
ihe other players to spectators status. 
The purpose of our intramural pro- 
gram is to gel the student body in- 
volved in a physically educating pro- 
gram. That means EVERYONE should 
be involved who signed up to play. 
It is funny when captains complain 
that their whole leam doesn't show up 
or they don't have enough lo play. 
Tliey are bringing this siujation upon 
tiiemselves. essentially- What player 
wants to come to a game where they 
may have to be a bench-wamier or 
cheerleader? A captain ha.s got lo keep 
tfie leam happy and use proper rolaiing 
systems. I know everyone warns to 
win but is that taking precedence over 
everything else importani in our pro- 
gram. To gain anything from an expe- 
rience, participaiion and contribution to 
the cause is a must 

The solutions, I realize, are not that 
easy to see. if more teams are made, 
then fewer games are played. Tliere is 
also no way to psychoanalyze a person 
to see if they are a potentially gotxl 
leader. What can be done now is 
gaining awiireness of responsibility of a 
captain. If more atteniion was paid to 
Ihe individuals of a team and not lo the 
outcome of the games, then wc cnuld

Scuba Class Takes a Dive 

IT WAS late Thursday night of 
mid-term break when about 25 
students from Southern College 
headed south. Their destination 
was Crystal River, Florida for the 
annual scuba trip. Here they took 
their check-out dives and were 
then certified scuba divers, after 
the half semester course ended. 

"I didn't think this class would 
be that hard, but it has taught me 

a lot. There's much more to 
diving than taking a tank and 
going into the water," said a stu- 

During the trip, they took three 
dives at Crystal River and one at 
Camp Kulaqua. 

When asked to sum up the trip 
in one word, a student replied.

Alan Graham 

By PJ. 
THE DOCTORS are still 
atching their heads. Who 
could be expected to perform at 
such a high level of athleticism 
after arthoscopic surgery on both 
knees? Well, AJan Graham, this 
's profiled student, over- 
just such an obstacle. With 
the encouragement of family, and 
the help of God, he is at a level 

nost of us can only dream of. 

Alan was bom here in College- 
dale and -ttended 
CA, but graduated 
from Mt. Pisgah 
Academy. In high 
school, he partici- 
pated in track and 
field events with 
some remarkable 
results. Running 
the 100-yard and 
50-yard dash in 
10.78 and 5.7 sec- 
onds, respectively, 
was close to rec- 
ord setting. 

In his second year 
at Southern Col- 
lege, Alan decided 
on a 2-year ac- 
counting and pre- 
oplometry major. 
Although admit- 
'wg he doesn't do 
^ything outside 
of team sports to 
''eep in shape, he 
compensates by 
playing a lot of 
basketball, foot- 
•^all, and volley- 

ball. After being a co-captain in 
Softball and volleyball, he has 
taken the responsibility of team 
captain of a football team in "A" 
league. Keeping everyone on the 
team happy is not an easy job, 
but he has gained a positive ex- 
perience from being a leader. 
A lifelong Seventh-day Advent- 
ist, Alan's attitude toward life and 
sports is one which we all should 
try to emulate.

Volleyball Season "Set" to Begin 


'.I Johnson 

ONCE AGAIN it's that lime of 
year when the major sports activ- 
ity changes. The flagball season 
is nearly over and volleyball is 
just around the comer. There will 
be two leagues, A-league for the 
serious experienced players, and 
B-league for those who are a little 
more laid back and looking for a 
social outlet. 

There are seven A-Ieague and 
14 B-league co-ed teams. The 
A-Ieague is required to have at 
least one girl on the court at all 
times, while the B-Ieague must 
have two. 

Some of the rules that need to 
be watched by all players this year 
are: When the ball is bumped 
more than once, it must be hit by 
a girl. The reasoning behind this 
rule is to prevent the men from 

monopolizing play. Another nile 
is the ceiling rule which says that 
a ball which is hit and touches 
the ceiling is still playable for the 
receiving side, but if it touches 
the serving side, it will be a point 
or side out. 

The B-league games will not 
be called very close so as to 
enhance the enjoyment of the

Mondays thru Thursdays with 
practice games on Sundays.

Teacher for 

34 Years 

By Gina Mdntyre 

JOINING THE faithful service 
ranks at Southem College is Dr. 
Wayne VandeVere, chairman of 
the business department since 
1960. He has taught business 
courses for 34 years. 

A doctorate in business has 
handed VandeVere many inter- 
esting assignments throughout his 

Being the son of two teachers. 
Dr. VandeVere skipped around 
to diferent schools and academies 
during his youth. He was the 
only child, a survivor of twins. 
His father taught history classes, 
while his modier gave piano les- 

VandeVere knew accounting 
and management was for him. He 
was influenced by a teacher, Mr. 
Mehling. "1 liked what he did 
and thought I could do the sj 
states VandeVere. "I 
wavered-never changed." 

"The thing to do in college," 

smiles VandeVere, "in the early 

I's was roller-skating. We used 

go three times a week. That is 
where I met my wife. Previously 
she had taken piano lessons with 
my mother." 

"I was hired as a 'green' 
teacher," said VandeVere. 

"I have a saying," added Van- 
deVere, "When I graduated I had 
thousand dollars. I got married, 
bought a car, and have been broke 
ver since." He smiles. "Believe 
ornoi, diose were the days when 
pizza was br^id new. We thought 
' was the funniest tasting stuff." 
VandeVere spent his first year 
It of college woridng at the 
Michigan Book and Bible House 
the assistant manager. "The 
most fmstrating thing was that 
the conference president believed 
that each conference employee 
^ould pastor a small cbutcb in

' and put to sleep 20 mem- 
teach week)." He learned a 



weekend of the school year, cost approxi- 
mately $300-$400. This cost covered only 
the food that was served. The 50's Fling, 
held Oct. 6, cost $600. Posters and paints 
alone were $80; balloons and streamers were 
another $420; renting the sound system from 
Instructional Media cost $120. 

It is estimated that the Beach Party, which 
will be held at the beginning of second 
semester, will cost $800. The SA plans to 
spend approximately $4,000 for the Valen- 
tine's Banquet. Every time the SA distrib- 
utes flyers announcing an upcoming event, 
another $60 is spent. 

Cost is not the only complication that the 
SA encounters. Many times the SA has to 
rely on the dependability of other people. 
The SA often needs 10 to 20 people to help 
set up and clean up, someone to run the sound 
system, and someone to host the event. SA 
Sponsor K.R. Davis usually helps out in 
building the props. "We're very dependant 
on volunteers," said Crosier, "because we 
can't afford to pay everyone." 

Choosing entertainment for SA events is 
another task. All music must be first ap- 
proved by Southern's Band Director Pal Sil- 
ver and Oie music committee. 

The SA welcomes any comments or ideas 
the student body has. "I wish I got more 
response from the students," said Crosier. 

Upcoming events the SA is presently plan- 
ning include Thanksgiving dinner, Chnstmas 
banquet, and the Beach Party. 


"I was hired as a 'green' 
teacher at Southern Col- 
lege in 1956," said Vande- 
Vere. He received his doc- 
torate from the Michigan 
State School of Business 
in 1966. "And I've been 
here ever since," he replies. 
His business expertise 
has taken him overseas, 
where he puts on account- 
ing workshops and semi- 
nars in Adventist institu- 
tions. He calls these trips 
to the Far East, Europe, 

and Africa his ", 

He is proud thai he has 
helped train so many 
church leaders. He has had 
700-800 business gradu- 
ates in his career as a 
teacher. The staff has I 
grown. The department I 
has added divisions 
seven alternate majors. 

Business is brewing at '

they're on the outside. This is bad because it 
translates into cash flow." 

Eastep graduated with a communications 
degree from Southern in 1970. His interest 
in philosophy and culture later led to a Mas- 
ter's of Divinity degree from a New York 
seminary. Eastep was in the restaurant busi- 
ness when he decided he needed a change. 
"When I was at Southern, photography as a 
profession never crossed my mind. It wasn't 
until I was 29 that I took a real hard look at 
my interest in photography to see if it was 
love or infatuation. It was love." 

For the next three years, he worked 60 to 
90 hours a week as a photographer's assis- 
tant. Ii was this apprenticeship that taught 
him the tricks of the trade, and sparked a 
strong desire to photograph Bedouin nomads 

in Saudi Arabia. 

"My dream to create a book on the Bedu 
became a reality, but only after 12 trips to 
Arabia, 2 1/2 years, and spending all my 
money. Arabs generally don't want their 
image made, and at first it was very difficult 
to gain access to the people. It took 2 1/2 
years for them to accept us." 

Eastep was allowed to photograph the 
Bedouin nomads upon several conditions: He 
could not bring a translator; he had to learn 
Arabic. He could not bring an R.V.; he had 
to sleep on the sand, live in a tent, wear 
Bedouin robes and drink camel's milk. "We 
lived as Bedouin for a year, and most visitors

Does Easiep have a favorite

were really special. "Those two 

men over there," he points, "as

is one of the most beautiful 

particular favorites. And the 
Polaroids. The Polaroids I'm 
quite proud of." 

Eastep says his background

Chattanooga's No. 2 

Morning Station Exceeds 

Goal for Annual Fund Drive 

FOR THE first time in many years, WSMC 
has reached its goal for the annual fund drive, 
and in fact surpassed it. Two days after the 
official end of the drive on Tuesday, Nov. 6, 
contributions were pushing the amount to- 
ward $57,000, leaving die goal of $55,000 
far behind. 

"The response has been tremendous," said 
Jeff Lemon, marketing director for WSMC. 
"We have received more contributions than 
ever before." 

Last year, the station fell $13,000 short of 
the same goal, probably because the drive 
was spread over a week. This year's drive, 
called "Family Week," was extended to a 
week and a half. 

Proceeds will go toward programming costs, 
said Lemon. National Public Radio member- 
ship alone cosis over $73,000 yearly. Some 
of that sum is absorbed by area businesses, 
but much of this sum must come from other 
sources such as listeners. "Moming Edi- 
tion," WSMC's weekday national news 
magazine, draws 4.8 million listeners across 
the nation each week. Its weekday afternoon 
news magazine, "All Things Considered," 
has 4.6 million listeners weekly in America. 
NPR's sophisticated programming has pushed 
WSMC to the No. 2 station for moming news 
in Chattanooga. 

To maintain this status. WSMC turns to its 
listeners for support each year. The classical 
music station this year announced October as 
"Family Month." Throughout this time, 
Chattanooga area residents were asked to 
financially support their public radio station 
by becoming a contributing member of the

signed up to be student missionaries 
since the recent Call Book Fair held 
on Oct. 13. 

Approximately 250 students at- 
tended the fair, where they were able 
to see slide programs of the differ- 
ent countries where mission calls 
are available. 

They also had an opportunity to 
meet with returned SM's who an- 
swered any questions they might 
have about the customs or lifestyle 
in different countries.

lent." said Kathy Wolford. She 
found the fair to be informative even 
though she had already decided to 
go to Denmark to serve as an assis- 
tant giris dean. 

"Southern's student missionary 
program is one of the most compre- 

hensive programs in terms of funding 
and support, as well as college credit," 
said Assistant Chaplain Robert Portu- 
gal. He added that Micronesia, Thai-

S.C.'s United Way Hits the Target 

By Wayne Opehshaw 

THERE IS a way one can contrib- 
ute to those in need — it's the United 

The United Way at Southern 
College, under the leadership of Dr. 
Don Dick, has recently reached its 
target for the 1990 fund drive. This 
year's target stood at $10,000; the 
total stands at $10,097. Sixty-four 
percent — 198 in number — of the 
faculty contributed, which put the 
average donation at $64.29 per 
person. The funds received on 
campus amount to only l/l,000thof 
the accumulated target for Chat- 
tanooga, which is $10 milHon. 

This year's target was five per- 
cent higher than last year's total of 
$9,621. Last year's goal was $9,000. 
Over the last three years, the United 
Way at Southern has reached the 

"I am very pleased we did so well. 
In the beginning we were discour- 
aged with the lack of participation, 
but we kept plugging away," said 
Dick. He said there was a veiy 
good response towards the end of 
the campaign, although large dona- 
tions were received in the early part 

of the drive. 

The United Way attempts to put fund | 
drives of various charities into < 
package. There are currently 42 agen- | 
cies receiving funds in Chattanooga. 
The idea behind the United Way cam- 
paign is to solicit funds only once, 
instead of iri, say, 42 individual drives. 
With the United Way concept, indi- 
viduals need only maike one donation I 
annually. The various agencies pro- | 
vide motivations to an allocations board. 
The agencies must then make a case as 
to how much money is needed. The 
Chattanoogaarea organization provides 
for 12 counties: seven in Tennessee, 
three in north Georgia, and two in 

"Services are available to eveiybody.'

in this year's campaign, students were 
not involved, said Dick. Considering 
students' financial responsibilities, Dick |

like them lo know what the United Way j

I ronment, said White. 

A special assembly program is 
scheduled at 1 1 a.m. in the gym. 
I Abyd Karmalli, world renowned 
environmentalist, is the guest 
speaker. Karmalli is an associate 
with ICF Incorporated, an envi- 
I ronmental lobbying organiztion 
n Washington, D.C. He has had 
I four years of experience in ana- 
lyzing environmental issues, 
"e is our age (23), and knows 
I what's going on," said White, 
who is encouraging all students 
to walk to chapel instead of driv- 
ing. "It's little things like this 
ihai are simple, but effective." 

Karmalli will be available in 
ihe cafeteria after chapel to dis- 
cuss environmental issues with 
SA officers and students who are 

He will also meet with the SA's 
Environmental Awareness Com- 
mittee at 1 p.m. today to offer 
suggestions on how to promote 
environmentaHsm on campus.

Also planned for Environmental 
Awareness Day is the introduc- 
tion of a ballot to the student body 
concerning the replacement of 
styrofoam in the cafeteria. "We 
have been working with the Food 
Service Division since early 
September in an effort to replace 
styrofoam with paper," said 
White. "We want to let the stu- 

dents decide." 

In a meeting of the Environ- 
mental Awareness Committee to 
generate ideas for today. White 
expressed his desire to have the 
Southern Accent printed on recy- 
clable paper as another measure 
for the environmentalism pro- 

"I'm all for environmentalism," 
said Accent co-editor Tim Bur- 
rill, "but I question the cost-ef- 
fectiveness of such a venture." 
According to Burrill, recyclable 
paper costs more, let alone the 
costs involved in having it 
shipped to the printer. "This 
might also force us to change 
printers, which could mess up our 
schedule." said Burrill. 

In the committee meeting, 
White said the Student Associa- 
tion doesn't wish to create more 
work for the Acce;j/ editors. This 
issue requires further research and 
discussion before it can be de- 
cided upon. 

White encourages all students 
to take advantage of every op- 
portunity to promote environmen- 
talism today. "It's all die little 
things put together that make up 
the spectrum of environmental- 
ism as a whole," said White.

Gillespie Helps SC Students Make Decisions 

By Brenda Pooley 

PEOPLE MAKE decisions every day of 
their lives, ranging from life-long to short- 
term. This is what Dr. V. Bailey Gillespie, 
theology professor at Loma Linda Univer- 
sity, spoke about at assembly during the 
Health Career Fair on Nov. 8, 1990. 

"The thing that frustrates people the most 
about decision making," said Gillespie, "is 
the fact that they expect God to give them an 
impression or a miracle to let them know 
which way to go." Gillespie said God wants 
us to make our own decisions because we 
need to be responsible for our own actions 
and choices. He feels that the first choice to 
be made is to follow God. 
Along with advice about decision making, 
I Gillespie also gave three points to remember 
1 when making future decisions. The first is 
that God's work is never done, so there is 

always work for people to do. The second is 
that God wants us to help other people. "If 
the work that you decide to do doesn't help 
others, then maybe you should reconsider the 
job you are seeking," he said. His third point 
dealt with being attentive to God's will. "You 
must make it a quest," said Gillespie. "Seek 
and desire His attention until you have a clear 
way to go." 

Gillespie said that when making his deci- 
sion about a career, he looked over his talents 
and commitments. He said he felt a real 
yearning to be a pastor. 

In closing, Gillespie asked the students to 
realize their need to make a commitment to 
God and that their first big decision should be 
about God. "God wants you to seek Him 
with all your heart so that you can surely find 
Him, and then your life will fall into place."

announced Crosier's resignation, saying it 
was due to "personal problems." White then 
suggested everyone remember Crosier in their 

"It was not personal problems," Crosier 
said. "There were no problems other than a 
conflict with my time. I had too much to do. 
and not enough time to do it." 

White said," I meant conflicts. I didn't 
mean it to seem like she had problems like a 
disease or anything. I meant schedule con- 

White also announced in the assembly that 
he had appointed Rich Roeske as a tempo- 
rary replacement until the election for the 
position is held. Two are running in the 
election, which will be held on Monday, Nov. 
19: Angela Morton and Roeske. 

Crosier will receive a 
paycheck for her work 
I through Nov. 7. As tem- 
porary appointee, Roeske 
will get a check for his eight 
work days in office from 
Nov. 9 until the election 
Monday. The individual 
elected will receive pay 
beginning Tuesday, Nov. 



As to whether or not it is constitudonal that 
Roeske, a temporary appointee to a major 
elected SA office, receives a paycheck. White 
replied, "It's not consritutional, but it's not 
unconstitutional. The constitution doesn't 
not specifically address this situation. 

"I've conferred with Mark Addison and 
Alex Bryan, both members of the judiciary 
committee, and they agree that it's not un- 

The two major S.A. events remaining this 
semester are the Thanksgiving dinner and the 
Christmas party. 

This week while Roeske has temporarily 
held the office, he has worked primarily on 
die Thanksgiving dinner. "It will be in the 
cafe, in restaurant form. When kids walk in, 
the faculty hosts and hostesses will seat them, 
and SA servers will take their orders. Sev- 
eral different food choices and desserts will 
be available," Roeske said. 

"It won't be a problem for the person who 
gets the posidon to take over from here," 
Roeske said. "I'm running because I think I 
have the ability to get people involved and 
use resources, especially people, to help to 
plan and implement ideas."

Senate Starts Campus Projects 

ted during reports by four new 
committees Wednesday evening, 
Nov. 7, at the fourth SA Senate 

The Election Committee is 
working on a way to computerize 
SA elections. 

The committee will be recruit- 
ing candidates to run for next 
year's SA officers. Quentin 
Sahly, chairman of the commit- 
tee, said, "We are trying to in- 
crease the number of voters this 
year. Last year we had only 46% 
of the student body voting." 

The Project Committee pro- 
posed a plan which includes Talge 
and Thatcher halls. Talge needs 
renovations in the study rooms. 
A grease pit is also needed so 
residents can change the oil in 
their cars. Thatcher needs re- 
decorations in the recreation 
room, plus a big-screen televi- 
and further renovations in 
the lobby. The committee also 
proposed a plan submitted by SA 
Sponsor K.R.Davis. Davis wants 
a portable cooking unit for the 
Student Park, a television and 
VCR in the Student Center, and 
hand dryers in the Student Center 


The cost of each project will 
range from $1,500 to $2,000. 

"After Thanksgiving break, we 
will finalize on which goals we 
will proceed with," said Senator 
Peter Kioll. "We want these 
proposals done this year, not 
during the summer." 

The Finance Committee pro- 
posed a plan which includes 
sending financial statements to 
senators. "This will enable us to 
establish better accountability," 
said Senator John Boskind. The 
statements will include revenues 
and expenditures that will give 
the year-to-date and monthly 
totals of the senate and SA budg- 

"We want to associate the stu- 
dent body with the faculty mem- 
bers." said Senator John Elliston, 
who leads the Student/Faculty 
Relations Committee. The ac- 
tivities this committee has in store 
include lunch with Southern 
College President Don Sahly 
twice a month. A bowling game 
against the administration is also 
being planned. 

The senate met Wednesday to 
vote on the proposal 

Newly-weds to Retreat to Gatlinburg 

By Elizabeth Herman 

planned for Nov. 16-18, is an 
opportunity for couples to gain 
knowledge into making strong, 
happy marriages, according to 
Helen Durichek, SC's assistant 
vice president for finance. 

Newly-weds are couples who 
have been married for a year or 
less, said Durichek, but couples 
who have been married longer 
are not excluded from the event. 
Durichek and her husband, 
John, do a lot with the married 
couples on campus. Besides 
newly-weds, they also work with 
young couples with children. 
"Our marriage has been enhance 
by the Marriage Enrichment 

Program, and we feel the need to 
help young couples learn early 
on what 1 and my husband learned 
later," said Durichek. 

The Newly-wed Retreat will be 
held at the Kleine Schweiz Cha- 
let in Gatlinburg. Tenn. Sur- 
rounded by mountains, couples 
will enjoy fun, food and fellow- 
ship. It is also a time for spiritual 
renewal, one in which the couples 
can grow together, said Durichek. 
A course entitled. "Growing 
Together" will deal with special 
issues concerning reladonships. 
An Agape Feast will end the 
weekend, when each couple may 
re-commit themselves to each 
other and God, she said. 

During a vigorous night of studying,

Letters to the Editors 

Deskworkers Not to Blame 

Dear Editors: 

i would like to comment on a letter to the 
editor printed in the last issue of the Accent. 
I am referring to the letter on the mail service 
in Talge Hall. 

It seems that whoever wrote the complaint 
does not know that deskworkers are not the 
people who place federal mail into boxes. 
Being a deskworker, I feel that it is my duty 
to inform this individual that the mail service 
is done by two R.A.'s that hold this adminis- 
trative duty. It would be good for everyone 
living in the dorm to learn who handles what 
position and at what times. 

There is no reason for the men of Talge 
Hall to come up and ask "who is on duty" 
when there is a sign up 24 hours a day that 
states this information. People also ask me 
what time the mail will be out. If they would 
only think, they would realize that the mail is 
out by at least 2:30 pm daily (except Sabbath, 
of course). If people would just stop and 
think about what happens daily in the dorm, 
they could easily answer their own questions 
by learning to observe the operations that I 
feel the Talge Hall deans and their staff are 
doing quite well. 
-Charles Kilgore 

Chained Up 

Dear Editors: 

Wait a second, are those bars 1 see on my 
dorm room window? 

Even though they are not there literally, 
symbolically they are very real. 

Being at the mature age of 20, 1 just natu- 
rally assume that I'll be treated as an adult. 
Thatcher Hall deans obviously don't think 

The locked doors in the dorm, which are 
locked day and night, are a constant reminder 
that I am neither trusted nor considered re- 
sponsible enough to handle my own life in a 
mature fashion. 

Yes, I know the doors are locked for my 

own protecdon, but locking me up like a 
laboratory rat is not the answer. 

In case no one has informed Thatcher deans, 
we are not in academy anymore. We are not 
plotting ways to meet our boyfriends in the 
middle of the night. 

My dean in academy was only three years 
older than I am now. How is it that she can 
be responsible for a dorm full of girls, but I 
can't take responsibility for myself. 

I feel as though I'm mature enough to come 
and go as I please and not be smothered 
behind locked doors. 
-Heavily Chained 

Is the C.K, Really Better? 

Dear Editors: 

What's this "New Look" down at the 
Campus Kitchen? I see a smaller menu (no 
breakfast after 10:30), shortened business 
hours (closed during breaks and before 2 
p.m.), and more signs for "Help Wanted" 
than there have been in the past. I agree with 
the need for changes down at the CK, but the 
change in management was handled in a most 
unethical, unbusinesslike, and un-Chrislian- 
like manner. True, there have been some 
changes for the good, but I believe that the 
bad far outweighs the good. Having diffi- 
culty getting students to work there and 
continue working there should say something 
about the way the CK is being run. Also, 1 
feel that giving those jobs to people in the 
community rather than to students is a poor 
businesslike procedure. Give me back the 
good old days when the CK was a fun place 
to be. 
-Concerned Customer 

Who's Being Irreverent? 

Dear Editors: 

Being residents of Thatcher Hall, we've 
had a growing concern pertaining to evening 
worships. It was always in our mind that in 
our Father's house our conduct was to show 
reverence and respect. However, when cer- 
tain ladies lead out in song service this "rule" 
of conduct is violated. The song leader 

adamantly tries to silence us with abrupt I 
shushing and patronizing remarks, only caus- " 
ing an eruption of snickers from the women I 
residents. I have to agree that at the begin- 
ning, while some are still finding a seat, it is 
not as quiet as it could be, but does this I 
require abrupt shushing and patronizing I 
remarks to college age women? 

Is the song service leader really portraying I 
a higher degree of maturity than those in I 
whom she is irrationally scolding? There are 
many ways in which would be just as effec- 
tive if not more in a much more relaxed I 
manner. Someone please inform her of how I 
to be tactful and keep the primary focus on 
worshipping the Lord.

"Lettuce" Eat 

Dear Editors: 

I'd just like to know why I get charged 
12 cents for a small piece of lettuce in the 

I think that I will quit school and become I 
a lettuce grower. It seems to me to be 
worthwhile venture.

Listen Up, Class! 

I Am Your 

Not long ago I overheard a 
I conversation between two 
; people in which they were 
discussing a teacher who 
! certain students felt was not 
j being fair with them. It seems 
i that the teacher was being 
unreasonable in his demands on 
' the students. The students felt 
that they could not go and 
complain to him without jeop- 
ardizing their grades. It oc- 
curred to me that some of my 
' students might feel the same 
I way about me to their parents. 
Are there things you would like 
to say to me if you had the 
chance? Let's think a bit about 
you and me and how we relate 
10 each other. 

First, we need to remind 
ourselves of what the relation- 
I ship is between you and me. I 
i am not your king or your 
boss — I am your servant. I 
' work for you. You hired me 
(and many other people) when 
you came to Southern College. 
' By choosing to come to this 
I college, you hired a group of 
) teachers, staff and administra- 
t you in getting a 

high quality education. My job 
is to teach you as much as you 
can absorb in the short time we 
have together. 

However, this boss-servant 
relationship is somewhat differ- 
ent than some in that you can't 
tell me what to do like you 
might like to do. You might 
say, "Since I am your boss, I 
am telling you thai I am not 
going to study. I'm doing no 
homework, and I'll take tests 
when I get ready." But that 
would constitute firing your 
servant. I have to be free to 
teach you using the best meth- 
ods available. Your servants 
can only do his job of teaching 
you if you do your part (study- 
ing hard). 

Likewise you can't say to the 
dean, "I don't have to obey the 
doiTO rules." When you chose to 
move into the dorm, you hired 
the dean to make sure that you 
have a good place to live and 
study. In so doing, you gave him 
or her a mandate to run the dorm 
in a way that will be most condu-

I live in a very small town in 
eastern North Carolina, far 
away from the hustle and bustle 
of a large city -far away from 
factories, smokestacks, smog, 
pollution, etc. When I was 
young, I would build forts in 
the woods and spend countless 
hours in nature, entranced by 
the freedom and beauty that I 
experienced there. Every 
Autumn, I would smell the 
fresh scent of the soil as the 
farmers would till up the 
grounds, harvesting peanuts, 
potatoes and other crops from 
their fields. My f^^mily and I 
would sit on our back porch 
and watch Canadian Geese fly 
in a giant "V" overhead and 
land in the f>ond, en route to 
Florida to vacation dijring the 

would be at the ocean nearly 
every Sunday, riding the waves, 
snorkeling on the waterway, 
and listening to my father rattle 
off the scientific names of 
every shell we passed. I am 
very fond of these memories 
and the many others which 
involve the wonder of nature. 

This year the Student Asso- 
ciation is promoting a specific 
issue in an effon to raise the 
awareness of the students - 
environmentalism. There are 
those that are apprehensive 
about environmentalism be- 
cause of the politics that are 
sometimes associated with it. 
A one-world government, 
suppression of individual rights, 
a break -down of the economic 
prowess we hold so dear -these 
are some of the issues that a 
few "Environmentalists" push 
and are fervent about in their 
pursuit of legislative "protec- 
tion." Earth Day 1990, held 
last April, is a good illustration. 
It was a good idea, turned into 
a money-making, commercial, 
politically lucrative scheme that 
infatuated America for a few 
weeks. A lot, but by no meims 
all, of those that were on the 
"Earth Day bandwagon" were 
there for ulterior motives - 
either to make money or to 
portray a false sense of concern 
for the earth. But regardless of 
its negative spin-offs, it served 
a very simple and needed 
purpose. It increased the level 
of awareness about the environ- 
mental hazards of our "Throw 
Away Society" and it informed 
the people of the world about 
the seriousness of our situation. 

Here at Southern College, in 
the hills of eastern Tenn. 
among the wonderful pretty 
countryside, and very close to 
the majestic Smokey Moun- 
tains, it is easy to forget about 
the environmental problems 
that are elsewhere in the world. 

Toxic waste illegally dumped 
in Mass. and elsewhere in the 
nation, forest depletion in the 
west, medical disposal on the 
beaches of the east coast, 
ground-level ozone depletion in 
Los Angeles -all these are 
problems that seem far away 
from the tranquil and serene 
area of our special place. It is 
our effort this year and for 
years to come, to inform the 
students of Southern College 
about the need to become 
environmentally intelligent. 

We are currendy involved in 
different projects to promote 
this issue on our campus. In an 
effort to make this important 
statement, we are currently 
working with the Administra- 
tion to formulate a comprehen- 
sive recycling program, and we 
are currendy working with the 
Administration to formulate a 
comprehensive recycling pro- 
gram, and we are also trying to 
replace or at least cut down on 
polystyrene (otherwise known 
as styrofoam) in our Food 
Services division. Our efforts 
are simple and earnest. We are 
promoting the need to think 
about our responsibilities as 
custodians of this beautiful 
planet. Politics and complex 
issues are not relevant to our 
efforts. Let's become con- 
cerned about this issue now, 
while we are young and ca- 
pable of making a difference. I 
am not predicting that if we 
don't turn everything around, 
our children will live in plastic 
bubbles, unable to go outside 
and play because of the danger 
involved! But we cannot avoid 
the consequences, however 
small, of treating our worid as a 
disposable object; "Well, if it 
breaks down, we'll Just get 
another one." It doesn't work 
that way. Sooner or later we 
will have to pay the price. 

We have all been on walks on 
Sabbath afternoons and mar- 
veled over the wonderful things 
which God has created for us - 
we see the Lord's grace, beauty 
and gentleness displayed in 
nature. As students of a Chris- 
tian school let's do everything 
we can to protect the splendor- 
ous, transcendent beauty of 
God's handi-work. Now is the 
dme to formulate your attitudes 
and decide the course you will 
take. Let's decide together 
that we will do our part in 
preserving the luster of God's 
creations and make the commit- 
ment as young people to be 
concerned about our environ- 
ment. Let's make simple 
changes in our lifestyles. If we 
are all participants in this 
effort, we will succeed. We 
must not fail.

AH! A break in the busy schedule 
is always looked forward to. no 
matter what lime of day it is. When 
we think "break", though, the idea 
that comes to mind most often is 
"NAP." In kindergarten, this was ac- 
ceptable but we are grown-ups now, 
right? What can we do 
ourselves to keep busy ( 
thing healthful? 

Well, the answers to l 
depend a lot on what yc 
end result to be. Physical activity has 
many advantages, such v& mental', 
social, iuid. of course, physical. 

A good case study would be a 
tj'pical, lazy RA from Talge Hall. 
Say this RA felt guiUy about sleeping 
all day. Well. exerci,se is ihe answer. 
The mental benefits gained are a 
feeling of accomplishment and a 
feeling of worth that we all need. 
Setting goats and then working for 
and achieving them brings satisfac- 

Social benefits are available, too. 
Being part of a group and feeling 
needed, as in team sports, are impor- 
tant. Relationships can benefit from 
this, also. Unfortunately, volleyball

The inside and outside of your body 
will improve with a regular program 
of fitness. Your muscles will look 
more toned or bigger depending on

the most drastic but gradual changes

of the heart should be your highest

blood, maintain the nervous system, 
decrease cholesterol level, and release 
nervous tension. It will also enhance

Hayes Crushes Graham 40-21 

Experimental Tournament Might be Continued 

AFTER SIX hours of hard-played football, 
one winner emerged. The team led by Rick 
Hayes crushed its final opponent, Graham, 

The flagball tournament began at 9:00 a.m. 
Sunday morning. The tournament teams 
included the eight A-league teams along with 
the two best B-league teams. Duff and Sharpe. 

With the single elimination format, there 
was no second chance for the teams that would 

Hayes squeaked by Duff, the best B-league 
team, in early action. Hayes later soundly 
defeated Miranda to jump into the final game. 

Graham had to defeat Eisele and Wood to 
meet Hayes in the championship game. 

In the final game. Graham got into early 
trouble with some quick interceptions. Hayes 
executed a perfectly run offense to make a 
strong run on Graham. By the end of the first 
half, Hayes' defense had not allowed Gra- 
ham to score. The score was an astounding 

"We just couldn't get anything going," said 
Alan Graham, captain. 
"After sitting on the 
sideline the game be- 
fore, 1 think we had lost 


down the field to seal the victory. 

Much of the success of Hayes can be cred- 
ited to pass completions, in the first half they 
missed only four passes. 

Outstanding performances were turned in 
by both Rick Hayes and Mark Kroll. Be- 

See Ladder, Next Page 

tween the two of them, they accounted for 26 
of Hayes' 40 points. 

The day was filled with close and exciting 

Alex Bryan's last second catch in the end 
zone allowed the underdog, Miranda to de- 
feat the favored Roeske in early action. 

Jeff Wood, captain of an A-league team, 
commented, "I loved the tournament idea. I 
think this should be tried every year." 

According to Jaecks, the tournament idea 
was an experiment that will probably be con- 
tinued in future years. 


The second half was 
a little different when 
Graham stormed back 
with 14 quick points. 
Lambeth caught two 
touchdown passes in 
the comeback. 

Mark Kroll soon 
rolled the momentum 
back the other way 
with one of his game- 
leading three intercep- 
tions. Hayes marched

two and a half hours a night 
to the gym team. 

Staying in shape demands a lot 
of a person as can be seen by her 
rigorous work-out program. Four 
days a week she must run one 
and a half miles, do 60 sit-ups, 
and do pull-ups for one of her 
classes. She also enjoys biking 
when she has the time. 

Such an active life style might 
wear the average person down, 
but she is not an average person.

Sandra Fryling 

MOST OF us have seen or 
most likely heard Sandra Fryling 
in the Collegedale church where 
she often plays the organ or 
sings for special music. 

Sandra graduated from South- 
em College in 1984. She then 
received her masters degree in 
organ and voice performance 
from the New England Conser- 
vatory. She has been teaching 
here sine. 1987. 

Sandra's main fitness program 
consists of running one and a 
half to two miles and swimming 
when she can find the time. 
When asked why she runs, she 
exclaimed, "I love it! I can relax 
my mind and enjoy being out- 
side." The benefits of running 
have paid off for her in her \n>'^>- 
training also. "You have to 
condition yourself to sing 
at your best," she explained. 
There has been an increased 
"health awareness" among 
the operatic singers. Many 
careers can be lengthened 
by conditioning the cardio- 
vascular system as well as 
the voice muscles, she said. 

Another area of concern 
for Sandra is in her diet. 
She really enjoys the chal- 
lenge of cooking healthy 
gourmet foods. She espe- 
cially likes ethnic dishes and 
cooks everything from 
scratch. While Sandra tries 
It back on her sugar 

intake, she admits that chocolate 
is her weakness. An overall a 
healthy diet is a primary obji 
tive in her lifestyle. 

Sandra also recommends plenty 
of rest. "I can tell a difference 
between seven and a half hours 
of sleep as opposed to eight," she 
said. A weekly Sabbath is also 
important, even though it can be 
the busiest day of the week for a 

Sandra really enjoys teaching 
here at Southern. "The atmos- 
phere of the students is great," 
she said. "This is a wonderful 
place to grow and develop not 
only physically, but spiritually 

Her advice to students is to be 
careful what they eat now so that 
it won't be a problem when they 
are older. Also students need to 
learn how to cook healthy foods 
that are tasty and fun.

Campus Kitchen Places New Order |Karl Kasell 

Live at S.C. 

THE FIRST thing Vicki 
Wilbur noticed about the 
Campus Kitchen was that it 
took an hour just to get a sand- 
wich. When she took over as 
manager, she set out to change 

Wilbur was hired to run 
things differently. She was 
asked to come up with new 
ideas for the CK and to moti- 
vate workers. Before, em- 
ployees did homework and ate 
on the job, Wilbur explained. 
Wilbur has changed many 
things. Before she became 
manager, there was no spe- 
cific time indicating when 
breakfast would no longer be 
served. Breakfast is served 
until 10:30 a.m. and lunch 
until 2:00 p.m. "I can't be- 
lieve that wasn't done before," 
said Wilbur. 

The Hot-and-Ready Special 
is another new feature at the 
CK. Heating lamps keep 
French fries, chicken nuggets, 
and other items hot and immedi- Vickie Wilbur \ 
ately available. by how long it took to get a

hot items ready without waiting," gun new programs as manager 
said Angela Bullock. "It's very of the CK.

convenient when you're rush- 
ing to class." 

Wilbur got tired of hearing 
the words, "We don't have 
that," so she asked that the 
menu, which hung on the 
wall, be taken down. A new 
menu board has been ordered. 
Another new item is the 
Birthday Special. Students 
who have birthdays during 
each week can receive a free 

Number calling will soon 
be eliminated. In the future, 
when an order is placed, the 
person will be given a plastic 
card with a number on it to 
set on the table. When the 
order is ready, the server will 
just look for the number in- 
stead of yelling for it. "Most 
customers don't pay attention 
to the server, anyway." said 

Every Thursday, the Cam- 
pus Kitchen sponsors a draw- 
ing between noon and 12:30 
pm. The winner gets a free gos- 
pel tape from the Adventist Book 
Center. To register, customers 
fill out a card while paying for 
their meal.

where there are no trees whatso- 
ever, so the sight of our lush 
foliage would be a cultural shock 
lo start "with, not to mention what 
all these autumnal colors would 
do to her sensibilities. Anyway, 
here we are strolling along Lynn 
Wood Hall on this bright, crisp. 
windy day — the day after elec- 
tions, the day the college Board 
is meeting (.they just emerged 
from Hackman Hall after giving 
it an "assessing eye"), the day 
Eckerd's opened at Four Comers, 
and the day some of the em- 
broyologj' students (Don Moore, 
Lorena Wolff. Danny Song, Jodi 
Kuhlman, and Mike Orquia) first 
saw the beating heart of a chick 
embryo. Tliese are the same 
students who keep scrawling on

Today I counted 43 cars parke<!

Texas, three from North CiUDlina 
(First in Flight), two from Indi-

from Rorida. one from New

a monstrous teddy bear and Todd

seen yet. Both were coming 
from Christian Behefs on their 
way to the donns; Jim Walters (a

was pulling up weeds and dead 
flowers around the fish p)ond. He 
told me that the fish were re-

Dear Abby and Abner, 

My boyfriend just broke up with me two 
days ago. Just yesterday I saw him with 
another girl. He gave me no explanation. 
What do I do? 
-Surprised and Confused 

Dear Surprised and Confused, 

I can understand your hurt and frustrarion. 
If he broke up with you for no good reason, 
and is already with another girl, then he is not 
worth having in the first place. Try not to let 
it show that it bothers you- at least while he's 
around. Let him be the initiator of your 
friendship from this point on. Whatever you 
do. don't go running back to him, no matter 
how much you want to. It will take a lot of 
time and patience, but you will realize that 
guys like him are not worth it and that down 
the road a better man will come along. 

Dear Surprised and Confused, 

This is an easy one. Think about it; if he's 
with someone else, what other explanation is 
there? He didn't really care about you. I 
know you are saying "but he said he loved 
me." Was it really love or just words? 

1 suggest that you just forget him. Don't go 
out of your way to avoid him, but don't let 
him know that you cared. The guy is obvi- 
ously scum and will probably dump the girl 
he's with now if she doesn't give him what 
he wants; however, don't take his action as 
that of the average male. There are plenty of 
decent men at Southern. Give it time and 
you'll be writing back for advice on mar- 
riage. Good luck! 

Dear Abby and Abner, 

Fve been in college for two years now, 
and I*ve never had a date. I've tried and 
failed. How do I get one? 
-Striking Out 

Dear Striking Out, 

This sounds seriot 
few questions: 

(1) Are my goals realistic? {In other words, 
are the people you're asking out available? 
Example: Mrs. Sahly isn't. Jane Doe is.) 

(2) Am I asking out people I know? If you 
ask out a total snanger, she'll probably say 
"no." Tr>' asking someone you have a class 
with and who knows you as more than just 
someone in the class. 

(3) Can you take them away from campus? 
While Southern College may have some great 
places for a couple on the verge of marriage, 
K.R.'s isn't exactly an impressive first date. 

Try these and let me know the 

Dear Striking Out, 

It can definitely be a war in terms of asking 
giris out. But the most important thing to 
remember is to always be yourself. Don't 
give up and get discouraged. There are many 
girls out there and plenty of time to find 
them. Just remember failure doesn't mean 
you'll never make it; it just means you need 
a little more patience. 

Dear Abby and Abner, 

My roommate and I are having prob- 
lems. She is constantly on the phone, even 
late at night, until 1 or 2 o'clock every 
morning. How do I ask her to stop without 
losing a friend and roommate?

Dear Aggravated Roommate, 

The best thing for you to do in a situation 
like this is to simply, yet calmly, express 
your feelings to your roommate. Ask her if 
she would be willing to step out into the hall 
or even the bathroom while talking on the 
phone. Honesty is the best policy. !f she is 
a true friend and a loyal roommate, she'll 
understand and most likely respect your re-

article on page 2. 

lologist from Albuquerque. New Mexico. 
Browning projects a Dec. 2 or 3 shake-up of 
approximately 7.8 on the Richter scale. 
"It's gonna happen." says Browning. 
He has been right before. Browning is 
widely regarded a.s the man who predicted 
the recent San Fransisco earthquake, the 
Mexico earthquake, and the Mount St. He- 
lens eruption — all within 24 hours. 

Still, most seismologists doubt Browning's 
credentials. (He currently sells insurance for 
Pain Webber.) But at least one seismologist. 
Dr. David Stewart agrees. "Browning has hit 
a bunch of home runs in a row. Babe Ruth 
was known for striking out, but you didn't 
ignore him when he came up to bat."

Is Collegedale Ready For a Quake? 

ird Pullia, 

THERE HAS been much excite- 
ment recently involving the predicted 
earthquake in the Memphis, Tenn., 
area, due between Dec. 2 and 5. And 
many students at SC are wondering 
how Collegedale will be affected and 
how prepared our area is for a disaster 
of this nature. 

"If an earthquake is strong enough 
in one place it could cause a cascading 
effect and cause waves to come 
through the fault line here in Colleged- 
ale," said Dr. Cyril Roe, chairman of 
freshman education. The fault at 
Memphis, called the New Madrid 
Fault, is not connected to the fauh line 
in Collegedale, which runs into the 
valley by the Tennessee River through 
plant one at McKee Bakery. Still, if 
Memphis has a catastrophic earthquake 
that is 8-8.5 on the Richter Scale, then 
u-embles here would be about 4 on the 
scale, which would rattle dishes or 
throw books offshelves, said Roe. But 
there would be no major damage, he 

"Personally I don't think we have 
much to worry about except shaking," 
said Roc. "We would feel it pretty 
good, but we would not get the devas- 
tation that Memphis would be getting." 
The safest buildings on campus are 
the wooden framed buildings such as 
Lynn Wood Hall. The only danger 
with Lynn Wood would be the bricks 
built around the building. The brick 

would fall out but the foundatio 
would stand, said Roe. 

The biggest single danger is flying 1 
glass, either internally or extern " 
"Don't try to go outside while Ihe J 
earth is shaking," said Roe. "Go I 
outside after it has stopped and avoid 1 
buildings where gas is used such as 
the biology building and the cafete- 

There have been precautions taken | 
in the event of a disaster here in Col- 
legedale. Terry Haight, who is disas- 
ter relief coordinator for Adventist | 
services, has been working hard to 
prepare the community for a poten- 

"Red Cross is ready to go," said 
Haight. "Evacuauon routes are 
planned to get people out of the city 
if necessary." 

Red Cross has set up shelters in the 
area and are planning to ship in beds 
and blankets. But there are some 
important things people should al- 
ready have, such as money, clean i 
water, warm clothes, and a flashlight. 
"Other than what Red Cross is doing ' 
along with us, there are not a lot of 
things we can do," added Haight. 

Many of Collegedale's structures 
are not earthquake-proof, but Hamil- 
ton County is taking every precau- 
tion available to aid in this disaster, 
said Haight.

Letter to the Editors 

What Constitutes Enough? 

Dear Editors: 

I would like to congratulate the McKee 
Library on being a good place to study 
However, it would be even better if the li- 
brary had longer hours. 

It is maddening that this colhjge library has 
hours which are comparable to most acad- 
emy libraries. 

I asked the library staff why the short hours. 
They replied, "There are not enough students 
using the library for it to remain open after 
the posted times." I would like to know what 
constitutes "enough?" Are ten students 
enough" or is one hundred students 

It angers me that an essential service of 
learning and knowledge has its hours based 
oy administrative beaurocracy. If there was 
only one student who was studying and leam- 
'"& *™ *e library has served its function. 

his library should be providing an essen- 
lial .service to the students and not merely be 
a convenience to them.-Eric Aakko

Karmalli, an expert environmental lobbyist 
from Washington, D.C. to bring the ideas of 
environmentalism to the student body. But it 
IS my opinion that the current ideas and 
proposals acted upon by the S.A. are steps in 
the wrong direction and fall short of this

™n the article. 

To my knowledge, the only idea that has 
been acted upon by the S.A. is the "Paper vs 
Plastic" debate. This issue deals with the 
replacement of all non-essential styrofoam 
dinnerware with paper dinnerware in the three 
food service areas. The idea behind this is to 
lessen the impact on the environment in two 
ways: first, through the lessening of chlo- 
ronuorocarbon (CFC's) emissions into the 
atmosphere (which are made during styro- 
foam production), which adds to the "Green- 
house Effect:" second, by helping with the 
current landfill crisis, we are now faced 
with. Paper is thought to be biodegradable 
over an approximate 1,000 year time span 
which makes the landfill space reclaimable 
in the future. 

The first point of less CFC emissions is a 
valid point. But at what expense are we 
gaining this benefit? In order to decrease 
CFC emissions, we are trading away out 
forests and woodlands resources. Trees are 
one of our natural combatants in the war 
against the "Greenhouse Effect." Trees natu- 
rally recycle harmful carbon into oxygen — a 
gas which does not add to overall global 
warming and is pretty useful when it comes 
to breathing. 

Also, when you deplete the land of trees, 
erosion becomes another big problem. The 
top-soil slowly gets washed away, releasing 
even more carbon into the atmosphere, ren- 
dering the land useless and barren. Within 
the span of a generation, the land where a 
bcaulitui lorcst once stood can become a 

desolate, sandy desert. 

Secondly, paper is biodegradable under 
certain conditions. When exposed to air and 
water, paper slowly breaks down into inert 
elernents which has no adverse effect on the 
environment. But when paper is .smashed 
between your neighbors old washing machine 
and a recent convert's old rock tapes, and 
then buried beneath 50 feet of garbage, con- 
ditions change. Very little air or water will 
ever reach diis paper, almost acting to pre- 
serve it. Also, even if the paper did biode- 
grade, all the other things that are stacked 
beneath it and on top of it will still be there- 
making the landfill space useless. 

Styrofoam makes no'II be there 
when the year 3,000 rolls around. Styrofoam 
takes up no more space than paper in a landfill. 
Styrofoam contains inert elements that will 
not harm the environment once in a landfill. 
Ingredients for styrofoam don't include a 
redwood tree. And styrofoam doesn't add $8 
to your food bill every month. 

In any case, the "Paper vs. Plastic" issue 
was decided by YOU.. .when the student body 
voted by a narrow margin to replace plastic 
with paper in K.R.'s Place and the Campus 
Kitchen. But we will still have the choice to 
decide between paper and plastic in the cafe- 
teria. But here are some things you might not 
have thought about when voting for the Paper 

During Environmental Awareness Day, 
Woody White told the students the approxi- 
mate cost of choosing paper over plasfic in 
the cafeteria. But he failed to mention the 
approximate cost if the referendum was voted 
in. He told us that the average student would 
pay between $6 to $8 more each mondi under 
the cafe plan. But what about the cost in- 
creases at K.R.'s and the C.K.? For students 
who eat frequently at these places, the cost is ' 
sure to be higher, since you will have NO 
CHOICE in the matter.

Southern Memories Staff 
Meets First Major Deadline 

By A 

n Mover 

THE EDITORS of the "Southern 
Memories" have been working hard all 
year to produce an unforgettable year- 
book, and have recently come a step 
closer to reaching their goal. 

Editor Gina Mclntyre and her assis- 
tant John Caskey have put in many long 
hours and successfully met their first 
60-page deadline on Nov. 12. 

"There were a couple of nights when 
we put in a lot of time," said Caskey. 

According to Mclntyre, working on 
the yearbook sometimes conflicts with 
schoolwork. "I've had to drop two 
classes to work on it," she said. 

Mclntyre began working on the year- 
book as soon as she was elected year- 
book ediior last year. "The night after I 
was elected the whole idea just came to 


me." she said. "1 even thought of a

30 hours a week on the yearbook.

Even more time will be needed to meet 
their next SO-page deadline Dec. 17. 

"After this deadline, it will all be down- 
hill," said Mclntyre. 

She said the yearbook will be a lot 
different than the past. "It will be very 
picture oriented," she said. 

The editors still have many deadlines 
to meet before "Southern Memories" is 

"We have our deadlines under con- 
trol," said Caskey.

The referendum issue should have been 
more thoroughly discussed in the open. The 
only mention of a price increase was during 
assembly where only approximately half of 
the student body was present. Since this was 
a monetary issue that effects everyone, the 
students should have been more educated on 
the ramifications of the referendum they voted 
on. Such avenues as the Southern Accent 
and announced, open senate meetings should 
have been used lo discuss the issue. 

At any rate, the referendum has been passed 
and its effects have yet to be seen. The only 
way lo show your disapproval now is to 
choose styrofoam in the cafe and voice your 
opinion through editorials (like the one you're 
reading) and openly discussing it with the 
S.A. officers and senators. 

I feel the S.A. should have gone with the 
idea mentioned by Karmalli when he said, 

"We need lo THINK globally, but ACT lo- 
cally." The action called for, in my opinion. 
is more than just a choice between paper or 
plastic. Acting is spending money for paper, 
glass, and aluminum bins for the dorms and 
classroom buildings so the effort is "hand's 
on" and not just saying, "Paper, please." 

The dorms will be instituting such a"hand's 
on" policy soon, but according to Dean 
Mathis, the idea originated with the admini- 
stration. The S.A. as a whole needs to be 
more active in this area instead of leaving the 
responsibility to the respective dorms and 
educational departments. 

The S.A. has a good idea here, but I feel it 
could have been implemented more effec- 
tively. Instead of the students being more 
aware and active by paying more for food, 
the S.A. should concentrate more on recy- 
cling efforts. Maybe after "breaking us in" 

with recycling and more educational activi- 
ties, the S.A. could have brought the "Paper 
vs. Plastic" issue up for a vote. 

In conclusion, "Environmental Awareness" 
is being educated and active. As a student 
body, it's up to us to make a difference, not 
only locally, but ultimately globally. |

Southern College Initiates Campus-wide Recycling Program 

WITH THE cooperation of the Grounds 
I and Service Departments, Southern College 
has initiated its first comprehensive recycling 
program which became effective Dec. 1. 

TTie program involves students as well as 
faculty members working together, making a 
conscientious campus-wide effort to separate 
and recycle the trash that accumulates daily. 

Skip McCandless, director of the service 
eparlment, played an active role in the

development of the program when the col- 
lege got serious about making plans for it this 
past summer. A CoUegedale city commis- 
sioner, McCandless had attended numerous 
seminars and workshops around the state on 
the topic of recycling. 

"I really just helped them [S.C.] know which 
direction to go with it," he said. 

The changes that have resulted from the 
of the recycling program have been 

strictly voluntary, according to Helen 
Durichek, assistant vice president for finance. 
"We're just kind of learning what we need as 
we go," she said. "As good stewards of the 
environment, we are trying to help limit what 
we send to the landfill," she added

chase a laser printer for the Southern Accent 
and Southern Memories publications. An 
emergency session of the senate was held 
Tuesday, December 1 1 to vote on this issue. 
"We appreciate the concern of the senators. 
I think they made a wise choice. It's proba- 
bly more important than they realized," said 
Tim Burrill. Accent co-editor. 

'I want to thank the senate for not wailing 
until next year. It will help when 1 am up at 
Uiree o'clock in the morning," said Gina 
Mclntyre, Memories editor. 

Erich Stevens, Accent co-editor was also 
pleased with the results. "I'm really saiis-

and now this will increase our efficiency by 
nearly I00%." 

Total cost of the laser printer is $2,200. 
Senate allocated $1,200 from the senate 
project, while the remaining funds were 
provided by the Student Association's capi-

according to the U. S. Naval Observatory. Earth isn't 
nearly that consistent. It speeds up a bit sometimes and 
slows down at other times. Because the planet can't be

Computers Worth $30,000 
Welcomed by Daniells Hall 

THE COMPUTER Science and 
Technology Department recently 
received a donation of eight used 
computers all the way from San Jose, 

Mentor Graphics, Inc. donated 
eight Sun Microsystems computers 
to Southern College. These five- 
year-old computers have high reso- 
lution, monochrome 19-inch moni- 
tors. Together they cost $30,000. 
Computer Science and Technology 
Professor John Durichek estimates 
they were worth $110,000 when 

Durichek 's daughter, Berry 
Durichek, is responsible for the 
donation. An '86 alumnus of SC, 
she works as a computer systems 
support engineer at Mentor Graph- 

ics in California. When she discovered 
eight computers were not in use, she 
encouraged Mentor Graphics to send I 
them to Southern College. 

The Sun Microsystem Computers I 
were previously used to design soft- 
ware for designing computer chips. 
Based on the UNIX operating system, 
these computers are quicker and more 
multi-faceted than the DOS system, 
according to Durichek. "The sky's the I 
limit with UNIX," said Durichek. "I't 
excited about having a new operating I 
system lo work with." 

Durichek hopes to input a Cad Sys- 
tem and some drawing programs in the I 
new computers. He also anticipates a [ 
graphic design class in the future, which J 
will compliment the Sun Microsysl

Communications Conglomerate 
Begins in Cleveland 

DR. KAY Kuzma, whose program 
"Family Matters" has been syndi- 
cated on some 70 radio stations, will 
soon be setting up a new conglom- 
erate ministry in Cleveland, Tenn. 

Kuzma has given numerous child 
development lectures and spoken at 
camp meetings and churches around 
the country. Many of her programs 
have aired on Three Angels Broad- 
cast Network, which is aired by sat- 
ellite and picked up by any satellite 

Despite her busy schedule, Kuzma 
has found the time to put together a 
new radio team. She has invited a 
group of professionals to work with 
her in her new ministry in Cleve- 
land. Among them are David Gim- 
mel. pastor in Hawaii and producer 
of a radio program; Fred Knopper. 
from Christian Record Braille; and 
John Tucker, from the radio and TV 
ministries of "The Quiet Hour." 

The new ministry will include pro- 
grams such as a pilot outreach pro- 
gram called "Welcome Baby." The 
program distributes newsletters con- 
taining information such as child 

rearing tips for new parents. j 

"Family Matters," which is currently 
a five-minute program, may be ex- 
panded to a daily fifteen-minute broad- 
cast and a 30-minute weekly broad- 

The new ministry, which is partially 
funded by the Georgia-Cumberland 
Conference, should be completed this 

"I expect the new broadcasting c„-. 
glomerate to provide inlemships and j 
job opportunities for students in public ' 
relations and media production," said 
Volker Henning, assistant professor of 
journalism and a member of the 
"Family Matters" advisory committee. 

Kuzma hopes to expand her ministry i 
in television programming. A com- 
mittee has been set up to discuss plans I 
for a future TV production studio in ' 
this area. 

Henning, chair of the committee, said, 
"While there's no timetable for when 
the studio will be created, the possibil- ; 
ity presents some exciting prospects 
which could enhance media education 
at Southern College." 


Environmentalism Controversy 

IN WHAT began as a simple 
SA environmentalism proposal. 
Paper vs. Styrofoam has evolved 
inio a controversy. 

SA President Woody White 
says the confusion over whether 
paper is a better alternative to 
styrofoam in the cafeteria, KR's 
Place, and the Campus Kitchen, 
is the result of a lack of aware- 
ness among students. 

"We tried to inform and edu- 
cate the students as much as we 
could, but apparently our efforts 
weren't considered a success — 
that explains the skepticism." 

Not so, says junior skeptic 
Harvey Hillyer. Hillyer, last 
year's social vice president, thinks 
[he SA is showing too much 

"It's nice to be concerned about 
our environment," says Hillyer, 
"but environmentalism, when 
taken to extremes, is really athe- 
istic. Environmentalists believe 
we have to preserve the earth for 
another million years. It can get 
out of hand." 

But White feels that environ- 
mentalism "is a national issue that 
we need to be aware of and act 
on. Consequently, paper will 
soon be an option in Southern's 

As far as cost goes. White says 

those who don't want to pay extra 
for paper won't have to. "In the 
cafe, there will be a choice for 
those who want to pay and those 
who don't want to." The cost of 
paper: four cents extra per meal. 
Meanwhile, KR's and the CK, 
which will soon be fifty percent 
paper, will not cost the student 
extra, says White. 

White also responded to a re- 
cent Accent guest editorial writ- 
ten by sophomore Rick Mann. In 
the article, Mann called SA's 
environmental program a "disap- 
pointment." In addition, Mann 
questioned the idea of using paper 
as a better solid waste alternative 

"I applaud Rick Mann for writ- 
ing, because it is through such 
debate that every aspect of an 
issue is presented," says White. 
"We knew about every one of 
Rick's arguments, and the reason 
we went ahead is because we have 
approached this as a hazardous 
waste, as opposed to a solid waste 

White went on to say that "the 
production of styrofoam all the 
way down to the incinerator is 
composed of the deadly chemi- 
cal benzene, which is a known 
carcinogen and a main cause of 
leukemia. When styrofoam is 

incinerated, it releases deadly 
amounts of benzene and other 
toxic dioxins." This can also 
cause breast cancer and lune 
cancer, notes White. 

Paper isn't perfect either, says 
Hillyer. "When you're produc- 
ing paper, it gives off carbon 
dioxide — everyone knows carbon 
dioxide causes cancer." 

"By pushing for paper, we are 
not saying it is completely envi- 
ronmentally safe," says White. 
"But it is the lesser of two evils." 

Mann, however, looks at envi- 
ronmentalism a little differently. 
"I feel the environmental prob- 
lem is a solid waste problem, 
because in order to save the 
environment, we have to be en- 
ergy efficient. Energy efficiency 
is the key." 

Mann also questions the order 
in which the SA is instituting this 
program. "They're just now 
saying what is wrong with styro- 
foam. ... As I said before. SA 
has a good idea here, but envi- 
ronmentalism comes from edu- 
cating people first." 

White does have support for his 
position, however, as evidenced 
by the fifty-eight percent of the

THE HOLIDAY season is fast

the spirit at the SC Christmas

The cafeteria was packed. SA 
Social Vice-President Angela 
Morion said the party was 
planned for four hundred, but she 
is not sure exactly how many 
showed up. 

The program started with Ira 
Mills and Bobby Stover singing 
a "new" version of "Santa Claus 
IS Coming to Town," a parody of 
SC's faculty. 

Daryl Cole and Harvey Hillyer 
performed a skit entitled "We 
Liked It." They portrayed two old 
men thinking back on Christmas 
when they were young and how 
thmgs were different. 

"Daryl and Harvey's skit was 
hilarious," said freshman Lisa 

Last of the live entertainment 
consisted on April Henline and 
David Koliadko singing a med- 

ley of Christmas Songs. 

The main feature of the eve- 
ning was the movie "Scrooge," 
with Albert Finney. Morton said 
she was a little worried when the 
film projector wouldn't work, but 
before long a cartoon called 
"Christmas Capers." featuring 
Donald Duck and Chip and Dale,

Wiihelm has three children: Jason, 19- Sheri

attend Bass Academy in Mississippi. Jason 
graduated from Little Creek Academy in Kn-

The men's dorni is following the same set- 
up, but is lacking the appropriate number of 
containers needed to hold the recyclables, 
according to Assistant Dean Don Mathis. He 
' "" said the dorm is presently 

equipped with a small 
number of the bins, as 
well as colored bags and 
signs instructing students 
where to place the prod- 
ucts when separated. "We 
are definitely in support 
of it." he added. 
The administration has 
also been asked to recycle within the individ- 
ual offices on campus. Receptacles for alu- 
minum can collection have been placed in 
the classroom buildings, as well. The cafete- 
ria and CK are also cooperating by sorting 
cans, paper, aluminum, and glass when dis- 
carding their trash. The residents of student 
housing have been given bins in which to 
%■' place their recyclables.

McCandiess McCandless said he'd 

like to see the students cooperate 100 per-

help put the whole thing over," he said. 

According to McCandiess, landfill costs are 
going up. Southern College pays $20 for 
every ton of garbage that is delivered to the 
Summit Landfill. On top of that, the school 
pays a $35 hauling fee plus $85 to rent the 
hopper that carries it. 

"Recycling has shown already that we'll 
save on running back and forth to the landfill," 
he said. "It doesn't take long to see it will 
pay off." 

At the same time the recycling program was 
initiated, the decision was made to let the 
grounds and service departments take over 
the waste management function for the 
campus rather than paying for off-campus 
garbage pick-up. 

Under the new arrangement, the grounds 
department collects trash from the dorms, 
student housing, the cafeteria, and the CK. 
while the service department collects trash 
from the classrooms and the administration 

The unsorted recyclables are taken to a 
shed behind the grounds department where

SC Begins Political 
Economy Minor 

Will Escape Long Lines 

By Mia 

IN A move to better serve the 
needs of pre-Iaw students, the 
history department has added a 
political economy minor to its 

The main emphasis for the new 
minor is to prepare pre-Iaw stu- 
dents for their career. While there 
is not one specific major that law 
schools are looking for, there are 
certain discipline areas which 
schools are looking for in pro- 
spective students, said Dr. Ben 
McArthur, chairman of the his- 
tory department. 

The LSAT (Law School Apti- 
tude Test) book states that an 
applicant should be able to 
"convincingly demonstrate that 
they've challenged their thinking 
and reasoning skills in a diverse 
course of undergraduate study," 

and that they "should choose 
courses that sharpen analytical 
reasoning and writing skills." 

A guideline that the LSAT book 
offers students is to take courses 
in humanities, philosophy and 
sociology. With this guideline in 
mind, the history department 
created the minor with the fol- 
lowing required classes: Prin- 
ciples of Economics, American 
Government, Modem Society & 
Politics, and Expository Writing. 
In addition to these, students will 
be able to choose two classes from 
a choice of five to complete the 

The new minor is considered a

kind on this campus. But it is

DURING SPRING _......,., 

146 Southern College students 
ill not be found in the waiting 

By pre-registering for the up- 
ming semester, these students 
have ensured themselves of a 
quick registration process, se- 
cured a place in the classes they 
t, and given themselves time 
to make any adjustments to their 
schedules if needed. 

"Pre-registration is helpful to 
both students and teachers," said 
Joy Roe of the records office, "h 
ves them time to work on their 
asses and advisement program." 
Pre-registration was first initi- 
ated tliree years ago. Tlie object 
behind its inception was to save 
students and teachers time and 
avoid long waiting periods dur- 
ing registration. It also gives the 
students and advisors m"ore Ume 
o concentrate on individual 
advisement. Students who 
change their majors find pre- 
registration particularly helpful, 
as it gives them sufficient time to 
reschedule their programs before 
'^^ start of the spring semester. 
'Enterprising students can set 
their own registration time," said 
Registrar Mar>' Elam. "It gives 
iiem time to think about the 
mbjects they need to take and to 
me tune their program." 

According to the office o 
admissions. 77 new students hav^ 
been accepted for regi.stration 
during the spring semester. These 
are either students who have 
previously attended Southern and 
are now returmng after an ex- 
tended absence, or students who 
will be attending Southern for the 
first lime. The number of stu- 
dents who have pre -registered 
does not include Orlando stu- 
dents, academy extensions, and 
smdents taking part in the Nurs- 
mg Community Chattanooga 

Pre-registration ended Nov. 13. 
so hapless students who failed to 
take the time to pre-regisler may 
experience frustration and disap- 
pointment with classes already 
filled. Pre-registration students 
have until Dec. 20 to make any 
adjustments to their existing 
program, otherwise they will have 
to join the lines on Jan. 7.

appeal to the senate concerning a 
laser printer. The cost for the 
printer is $2,176.16 said Caskey. 
He appealed to the senate project 
committee for funds. 

Presently, the Accent and 
Memories are using the printer in 
the Public Relations Department. 
"PR charges one dollar per page," 
said Mclntyre. 

Burrill said, "We aren't budg- 
eted for not having a laser printer. 
We used to have free access to 
the one in the Journalism Depart- 
ment, but now it's gone." 

"I love the idea of a laser printer 
for the Accent and yearbook," said 
Senator Peter Kroll. "But is the 
senate project or the Student 
Association responsible for the 
funds?" he added. 

The benefits of a laser printer 
will be long-term, said Mclntyre. 
It would also improve the quality 
of the end products, said Burrill. 
"I didn't expect an answer 
during the first meeting," said 
Mclntyre about senate funding for 
the printer. 

Another project under consid- 
eration for the senate project is 

making CNN (Cable News Net- 
work) available on a television in 
the student center. "But not soap 
operas," said K.R. Davis, Student 
Association sponsor. 

"I am in favor of CNN being 
provided to the student body in 
the student center," said Alex 
Bryan, SA executive vice-presi- 
dent, and chairman of the senate. 
"Students are interested in what's 
going on in the world and this 
could be a great access for them," 
he said. 

Also discussed in senate was 
the styrofoam issue. The vote 
was passed by the student body 
with 58 percent in favor of paper 
products. Students will only have 
to pay four and a half cents in the 
cafeteria if they choose to use 
paper products, said Woody 
White, SA president. "Everyone 
has the choice between styrofoam 
and paper," he said. In the 
Campus Kitchen and KR's, pa- 
per will replace styrofoam at no 
extra cost, said White. 

"I am happy with the outcome.

paper," he said. ■

will decompose. "I can't see 
styrofoam ever disappearing," she 

White adds that "styrofoam and 
plastics comprise 30 percent of 
landfill space." (Paper, mean- 
while, will biodegrade over a 
period of about l,000years.) "All 
the landfills that I know about are 
churned up," says White, "allow- 
ing natural biological processes 
to take over." 

While styrofoam may not be 
biodegradable, it's not useless, 
says Hillyer. "In Florida, they 
are making parking bumps, pic- 
nic tables, and park benches out 
of recycled styrofoam." And 
"even if styrofoam was ehminated 
entirely," quotes Hillyer fi-om a 
USA Today editorial, "it would 
make virtually no difference in 
the rate of landfill usage." 

Hillyer, Mann, and others are 
also concerned about the trees 
needed to make paper. White 
answers that "for every tree cut 
down, two trees are planted to 

"I decided to add the ^,.,„vj„- 
mental issue as a fourth dimen- 
sion of the SA," says White (the 
other dimensions being social, 
publications, and representation). 
"In college, our attitudes and 
opinions are developed. As 
educated people and as Christians, 
we can make the statement now 
and continue making it through- 

Hillyer disagrees. "The way I 
see it, environmentalism is tak- 
ing away from the social aspect 
of the SA. No one came to me 
last year and said, ' Harvey, we're 
having too many parties.'" 

White insists that environmen- 
talism is important even on a 
small campus such as Southern's. 
"All progress begins on the local, 
personal level, and it is through 
such small contributions to a 
monthly project that a global 
difference is made. A lot of 
variables contributing to one 
cause realized makes a difference 
when the whole spectrum is 
viewed." —

It looked like a grade-school play-

described as immaturity. 

First of all, let us define sportsman-

sportsmanship is: "Tlie qualities and 
conduct of being a person who abides by 
the rules of a contest and accepts victory

Td like to emphasize the word gra- 
ciously. That doesn't mean threatening 
someone or using profanity against the

basketball games to be played, unless 
behavior can be improved. There's no

Letters to the Editors 

Accent is Informative 

Dear Editors: 

r\ oi i]\c Southern Ac- 
cent, I find it quite informative. Being a 
Student Missionary, I don't hear much news 
from the home front, especially news about 
Southern College. 

Every once in a while, a copy of the paper 
' e and I read it cover to cover. The 

if 1 ' 

know what's going on back 

Articles in the paper discuss various topics 
and issues that are of interest to both me and 
my other Student Missionary friends. Please 
keep up the good work and don't forget about 
your missionary readers on the other side of 
the world.-David Barasoain 

Bus Lacks Something 

Dear Editors: 

Browsing through the Nov. 1 issue of the 
Accent, the picture and article of the new bus 
caught my eye. Traveling around the coun- 
try, this bus will also catch many a non- 
Seventh-day Adventist eye and who will at a 
glance identify it as belonging to Southern 
College by the current logo. Since we have 
a duty to spread the truth around the world 
and so little of the world has heard our name, 
let alone what we stand for, why don't we 
add the words Seventh-day Adventist below 
the logo boldly to further identify who SO 
really is? This could be done to our other bus 
and vans, as well. At the discretion and 
assent of the administration, maybe a catchy, 
yet direct, slogan conveying the Third An- 
gels Message could be added pointing to our 
purpose as a church. 

Our purpose. The upcoming vacation could 
be well spent reflecting on who we really are 
what we want to do with our lives, and what 
needs to be done to bring the two together in 
the spiritual tense. If we are lacking in any 
way, this may be the time to re-think and 
make a true commitment of purpose. By not 

making a choice either way, we really 
making a choice by default when probation 
ends. "Being" an Adventist in no way guar- 
antees us any advantage. Only a remanent 
will be saved and that is a remanent of 
Adventists as part of the remanent world: 
those tested true through the fire. 

Our commitment must be in thought as 
well as in evidence of our actions. It's easy 
to Hve a spiritually apathetic yet comfortably 
secure life when the demands of college life 
and the world's distractions command so 
much of our time each day. We must remem- 
ber the pursuit of earthly gods are only a 
means to an end — eternal life — and must be 
balanced by "things from above." 

The party will eventually come to an end 
for those left on earth, and darkness will 
close in. But it will only begin for those who 
made a choice for the "Right" today! Perish 
the thought if it may, but for some of us 
driving home for the holidays, today could be 
the day of choice. "Choose ye this day not 
out of fear but free will of sincerity) whom 
you will serve.'^ But the righteous never fear, 
secure in God's hand no matter what the 
outcome each day brings us one step near! 
"Dale Lacra 

All You Need is Friends 

Dear Editors: 

Some time ago I went to one of the SA 
functions here at college. To be quite truth- 
ful, I had not made any plans to attend. In 
fact, I had planned to go just about anywhere 
else other than this function because of the 
fact that all during the year i had heard how 
bad the SA functions had been. Yet not 
being able to find my friends I headed to- 
wards the cafeteria in hopes that maybe they 
were there. My friends were no where to be 
found, yet I made two important discoveries. 

The first was that as I wondered around 
trying to find my friends I ran into a lot of 
other people that 1 had not seen for a while. 
In fact, I really had a good time and changed 
my opmion of a lot of stories i had heard 
about how bad the activities were here on 

Secondly, very few people ever bothered to 
show up. I really believe that if the whole 
school would start supporting the activities 
SA puts on, they would be of great success. 
Just imagine walking into the gym one Satur- 
day night and stepping into a room filled 
with, say, 1,000 people. Just the sheer 
numbers would almost guarantee that you 
could find a couple of friends and have a 

When i was in public high school, we would 
occasionally have pep rallies. I believe part 
of the excitement was having all those people 
enthusiastic about where they were. 

I believe that if more of our students came 
to our functions, we would really see a differ- 
ence, not only in our attitudes, but also in our 
school spirit. So give your peers a chance the 
next time we have a function. Remember, 
the Olive Garden will still be there 

-Raul Villegas 

Pay Where Pay's Due 

Dear Editors: 

While I greatly enjoyed the SA Christmas 
party and thought it was very well done, I 
was a little disappointed in the fact that only 
two SA officers came, besides the yearbook 
and newspaper staff. 

Perhaps some of them had legitimate ex- 
cuses but surely not all of them did. It was an 
SA function and should be supported by all 
the SA officers. They are being paid to be 
involved in these activities; they should es- 
pecially be there to set up and clean up after 
die programs. If they do not feel that this is 
part of their duty, then perhaps the ones that 
do help should receive part of their pay. 

If the SA officers feel it is not worth their 
time to be part of the SA, why should we?

Hospitality Brings 
Blessings to Us All 

IN THE fast-paced world 
(and campus setting) in which 
we live, there is a tendency to 
take things for granted. We too 
often assume that because it is 
here, it always will be the 
same. Taking things for 
granted without putting forth 
the effort to make them sure 
and secure is a form of neglect. 
We might well ask ourselves 
what it is we assume — take for 
granted— about learning and the 
practice of leaching. As teach- 
ers and administrators we need 
to articulate our client philoso- 
phy. Who are these students 

offices each day? What 
' we believe about our students 
I that causes us to administrate 
! and teach as we do? What is 

I assume about the students at 
! Southern College? How do m 
I faith and my own Christian 

theology affect my view of 

siudenis? I suggest four basic 

The first is a picture of a 
container. Into this open we try 
to pour information and facts 
until it is full to the brim. Our 
philosophy is simple. Life is 
composed of facts, formulas, 
principles, and doctrines that 
need to be known and under- 
stood. At any given moment 
we can turn over the container 
and pour out what has been 
crammed in. Teaching in this 
model is a transfer of informa- 
tion from container A, the 
teacher, to Container B, the 

The second idea is one in 
which the student, as a citizen 
of the school without full 
citizen rights, is a sort of 
immigrant somewhat devalued 
and quite unimportant. Do our 
exams or our administration of 

rules or policy play hide and 
seek games which expect 
students to know that which we 
have disguised or hidden away? 
In both models one and two, I 
find contradiction to my theol- 
ogy which affirms we are 
created in God's image and 
supremely valued by Him! 

In the third picture I see the 
student as a disciple, chosen by 
God to be here in this place. 
With this picture in mind we 
find inspiration, excitement, 
and hope in the future. We 
discover teachers willing to 
invest their time in the lives of 
the learners. 

A fourth view we can have is 
that of the student as a guest on 
our campus. With that in mind, 
we administrate and teach from 
the perspective of dial of host, 
making our campus, class- 
rooms, cafeteria, etc., places of 
hospitality. This idea of hospi- 
tali^ is highly valued and 
evident in biblical teachings. 
Hospitality is a two-way street 
in which die host is often 
blessed by the traveler, and at 
the same time the guests' needs 
are being met by the host. We 
need to take a close look at the 
elements of the guest-host 

Here we have several ele- ■ 
ments to consider for the 
development of the relationship 
to the fullest extent. We first 
need to be personable and 
fiiendly. We need to take dme 

to get to know each other. The 
host learns the needs and 
desires fo his guests so he can 
fill their needs. As host we 
recognize our guests as travel- 
ers coming from and going to. 
What can we give to assist in 
the journey? At the same time 
travelers are usually contagious 
widi the excitement of the 
journey and bring informadon 
with them. They are also 
careful to plan and ask ques- 
tions about future destinations 
juid points of interest to visit on 
this particular slop. We seek to 
make the guest comfortable and 
not hide the towels and necessi- 
ties from them. Hide and seek 
exams and quizzes made up of 
15 guesses are not in the com- 
fort zone. Clear helpful infor- 
mation for the days ahead is the 
most needed and worthwhile. 

Teaching students is not a 
photocopy business where we 
create duplicate of ourselves. 
We are in a process in which 
we all cooperate with our God. 
He is our companion on this 
journey and it is His work we 
are about regardless of position 
as guest or host. 

Many years ago Abraham 
invited three travelers into his 
lent. These strangers turned 
out to be angels who brought a 
message from God. Hospitality 
brings blessings to all of us. In 
this season of giving and 
receiving blessings, let us take 
the time to share our gifts, our 
time, and our lives to bless 
each other.

If We Must Attend Assembly, Let's Make it Worthwhile 

By Clieri Mj-Colpm 

As a thinking college senior, 
the awful question hits me: Why? 
Why is it so important for all our 
little bodies lo mass together at 
one time, hanging breathlessly on 
every word spoken from the plai- 
^OTml The assembly informa- 
tion sheet explains that these 
occasions are "to provide spiri- 
tual nunure, cultural enrichment. 
general information, and commu- 
nity fellowship." are very noble aims, but 
will forcing us to be there make it 
happen? Not likely. Some stu- 
dents resent being forced to put 
in another hour of lecture time 
per week. Some resent it so much 
" completely kills die effect. 
particularly when there seems to 
De no redeeming social value in 
the program, such as the nerd 
judging contest held during as- 
f^bly my freshman year. Idon'i 
oe'ieve it provided much in the 
way of spiritual nunure. or built 
community fellowship. People 
who see "nerdy" characteristics 
'" themselves can only end up 
teeUng alienated 

Of course, all assemblies aren't 
that bad. I heard some of the 
most practical solutions to the 
problem of global population in 
an iissembly. I enjoyed heiu-ing 
the Vietnam vet share his experi- 
ence. Many of the musical offer- 
ings are also exceprional. On the 
other hand, if it's a glorious day 
outside and you're feeling rest- 
less because you've been sitting, 
listening to people talk all morn- 
ing and here's another one at it 
again, it gets monotonous. Tlie 
urge to fidget is irresistible. Rapt 
attention is not necessary. There 
won't be a quiz later, but there 
probably will be one in the after- 
noon, so many use assembly time 
to study. So the poor speaker 
looks out on the audience and 
sees us sleeping, studying, whis- 
pering. He probably thinks we're 
unevolved Philistines: typical 
rowdy college students. It's not 
that at all. Wejustlike tobeable 
to decide whether or not this 
week's program is for us, and be 
able lo attend accordingly. 

wanted to attend any assembly? 
Would il be so awful? Would we 
be left with an unfilled void in 
our lives which can only be satis- 
fied by putdng in an hour's extra 
lecture time each week? 

Required assemblies aren't part 
of the SDA fundamental belief 
system. It's not a moral issue, 
and it's not a character defect lo 
be disenchanted with the art of 
oration. There is nothing wrong 
with being unhappy about anend- 
ing programs that are a waste of 
time, at best, or even offen.sive. 
Some of the worst programs 
included a basketball player 
charmed with his own success, a 
C.A.B.L. skit in which the bot- 
tom line was if 1 think on my own 
I can't be pan of the True Vine. 
and another spoofing events in 
the Middle East. 

If we're not into the collective 
student body experience, do we 
have to be along for the ride, even 
though it only underscores the 
distance between students who 
able to generate — and 

But what if no student ever tain— enthuaasm, when some of 

us believe that sending young 
Americans to a scorching desert 
for our benefit isn't really the sort 
of thing one wants to spoof? 

If assemblies are somehow 
inextricably intertwined with the 
Advencisi education experience, 
can we at least make sure they 
always address important issues 
in a Stimulating way? If this is 
really too much to ask for on a 
weekly basis, maybe it could 
happen biweekly, or (dare [ sug- 
gest) monthly? 

Because everyone has a differ- 
ent idea of what a meaningful 
assembly is, maybe assembly 
credit could be extended to ac- 
tivities off-campus, like political 
meetings or cultural eveoLs. For 
on-campus assemblies, a student 
assembly committee could be 
organized to work with existing 
assembly planners. Whatever 
means are used, something has to 
be done to make assembly time 
more appealing, or students at 
Southern College will continue 
to direct blank stares at the plat- 
form, wishing desperately they 
could be somewhere, else.

Now tliat Christinas vacaiion is 
approaching, let us reflect a little » 


We began the first month with soft- 

I ball. For the regular season, most of 

I the teams ended up where predicted. 

i Steve Miranda's team took first place 

I with a 7-1 record. Sieve also won the 

j Accent MVP award on the strength of 

i his 12 homeruns and his sporlsman- 

j For the women's league. Myers' 

i team took first place and Christy 

: Travis won the MVP. 

The Ail-Night Tournament featured 
many siuprises. one being the early 
elimination of Miranda's team. An- 
other surprise was the success of Jody 
Travis and his team who grabbed the 
toumamenl victor>'. 

The football season followed and 
was quite a success, considering the 
close recoil and games. The regular 
season ended Hayes' and Graham's 
teams lied for first with 5-3 records. 
An experimental All-Day Tournament 
was added this year, combining the 
two top B-league teams and all of A- 
league. Hayes started the day with a 
close shave victory against Duff, but 
pulled it all together to beat Miranda 

i in the next round. They then 
promptly thrashed Graham in the 
championship game, 40-21. 

Turning indoors, volleyball season 
brought many participants. There are 
.seven A-league and two divisions in 
B-league with seven teams apiece. 
The three-man tournament was a 
recent Sunday event that saw the 
team of Daryl Wilkcns. Alan Graham, 
and Wes Malin take the top honors. 
In all. the first semester has been 
one of good games and better sports- 
manship. Steve Jaecks. the intramu- 
ral director, has commented on the 
great auitude of everybody, especially 
m football and volleyball. 

What we need to do is cany this 
feeling over to next semester. The 
two sports coming up next, basketball 
and floor hockey, can test the pa- 
tience of anybody, so let's keep it 
clean and have fun. Now, if only we 
could work on those pickup games .

is not something we should do a 
lot of, but this is what Shannin 
Spinella literally does quite often. 
Being on the gym team, and con- 
sidering her size and ability, she 
is sent sky high in many routines. 

Bom in Dover, New Jersey, and 
living presently in Sarasota, Fla., 
Shannin has always enjoyed gym- 
nastics. She spent three years on 
Ihe gym team at Forest Lake 
Academy where she graduated 
from and is currently in the third 
year at SC. She is a captain on 
this year's gym team and is also 
pastor of the Physical Education 
club. She has decide on a Corpo-

Of all the death defying acts she 
has done in her life, only twice

torn some ligaments and broken 
one of her fingers. Her skill is

where most of us would get nose 

Shannin stays in shape for gym-

Shannin Spinella and Mark Kroll 

Mark Kroll 

THE LIFE of an athlete is 
always an easy one. As can 
seen by Mark's numerous ir 
ries, there is sometimes a pria 
pay. A broken ankle playing 
football, a broken knee cap play- 
ing basketball, and a broken wrist 
while participating in a gymnas- 
tics routine are a few of the acci- 
dents Mark has been Uirough. 

This is Mark's first year in col- 
lege. He graduated from Mt. Pis- 
gah Academy. He's originally 
from Loma Linda, Calif., and now 
lives in Ashville, N.C. He has de- 
cided to go Pre-Law through a 
Business-History major. 

Mark is an active participant in 
all of the intramural and is also on 
die gymnastics team. During the 
football season, Mark's team had 
the best regular season record and 
won the tournament at the end of 
the season. In the championship 
game, Mark turned in a most valu- 
able performance, catching two 
touchdown passes and intercept- 
ing three others. Mark's responsi- 
bility on the gym team is mainly 
pressing and doing the blocks n 

Although time takes away these 
opportunities now, he used to keep 
in shape by running, biking, and 
swimming. He has participated in 
some high school triathlons and 
also joined SC's triathlon this year. 
Mark's involvement in SC's ath- 
letics is important to him, but more 
important is the good attitude he 
brings to them. 


The Bell Tolled for These Joggers 

y Tanya Johnson 

THE JINGLE Bel! Jog started off with 
encouraging words from Santa, on the ninth 
of December. It was the second annual 
Southern College Jingle Bell Jog and 70 
participants came out to join in the fun and 

The Jingle Bell Jog hosted two events, the 
5 kilometer run and the 1 mile fun run. 

Heather Williams, a Southern College stu- 
dent, finished first in her age category for the 
5K. "I noticed the good sportsman-like 
conduct among the competitors," siiid Wil- 
liams. "Everyone was encouraging each other 
throughout the race." 

The one mile fun run was won by Phillip 
Graham and Nicole Mathis. 

The proceeds of this race will go toward 
amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or com- 
monly referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease. 
ALS is a disease that attacks specialized nerve 
cells called motor neurons, which control the 
movement of voluntary muscles. This dis- 
ease disintegrates these motor neurons pre- 
venting them from delivering the chemical 
signals that muscles need for normal devel- 
opment. ALS came to wide public attention 
when the Hall-of-Fame career of Yankees 

first baseman Lou Gehrig was cut short by 
this disease in 1939. 

"I think it was great that they had a run for 
Lou Gehrig's Disease," said Gary Blanchard, 
top overall finisher in the male category. 
"More of the races should be for such a good

DAVID SMITH grew up par- 
ticipating in competitive sports 
such as ice hockey, tennis, and 
basketball. This is when he 
developed an interest in sports: 

n interest that has carried over 

110 his adull life. 

Dr. Smith says it's hard

pounds when they were first mar-

In addition to exercise and diet, 
Dr. Smith says he couldn't go 
without proper rest. Humorously 
he says he is needing more and 
more as he gets older. For him, 
the Sabbath is also a welcome 
rest from the busy schedule of an 
English professor. 

In closing. Dr. Smith stressed 
that a person must find a balance 
in his life between the physical 
and spiritual dimensions. "A 
successful life is one in balance."

TED EVANS describes his 
exercise program as a seasonal 
one. Participating in each sport, 
Ted Evans manages to enjoy 
everything from softball to soc- 
cer. When not officiating or 
coaching, you will usually see 
him playing on the faculty teams. 

This is only part of his fit- 
ness program, however. Dur- 
ing the off season, Ted likes to 
lift weights. Three times a 
week he works out, basically 
for muscle conditioning rather 
than bulk. Like many people 
he is not a big fan of jogging 
either, but docs manage to walk 
some with his wife. 

Another sporl that Ted en- 
joys almost year round is golf. 
" It gives me a chance to get 
away from everything, no 
hassles, just social time with 
good friends", he stated. To 
avoid "high impact" sports, 
Evans will occasionally ride his 
bicycle, however, "It can be 
high impact when I fall off!" 

Ted is also concerned with 
his diet. Not a big sweet eater, 
as evident from the Hershey 
wrappers in his office, Evans 
said his only weakness is for 
soda pop. He doesn't like to 
drink a lot of water so his only 
alternatives are juices and soda. 
He does avoid a lot of fried 
foods and usually eats a salad 

once or twice a day. "A salad 
makes you feel full without all 
the calories," he states. 

Finally, Evans spoke about the 
need for rest. For himself, he 
said that he has been going to bed 
at about 11:30 every night, 
cept Friday. Fridays are a 
different though. It is the only 
night of the week that he has free 
and he usually likes to spend timi 
with his family. 

His main advice to students i 
that "it is much easier to stay ii 
shape than it is to get into shape, 
so once you've started that exer 
cise program don't stop, it wil 
pay of in the long run.

Parenting Students Get Hands

NOT MANY of us can say what 
it feels like to be pregnant (at 
least we hope not). However, 
students in Parenting I experi- 
enced what is probably the next- 

On Wed., Dec. 5, instructor 
Judie Port brought to class a 
device that may have changed the 
minds of many regarding their 
future in bearing children. This 
device was a pregnancy simula- 
tor, better known as an "empathy 

The empathy belly portrays 
what it is like to be nine months 
pregnant. It consists of a rib belt 
which is lightly wrapped around 
the lower torso, making breath- 
ing slightly restricted. The pro- 
truding stomach is strapped on 
over the shoulders and around the 
waist and contains 1 1 pounds of

under the stomach to apply pres-

seven pounds each, are placed in 
pouches in the stomach lo repre-

one pound each. The entire "get-

"This device was manufactured

"It also helps husbands lo sym-

TEARS FfLLED the eyes of 
Dr. Douglas Bennett as he began 
to tell the story of his trip to 
Czechoslovakia and Poland. 

Bennett, chairman of the reli- 
gion department, visited two 
seminaries in the two countries 
in October. During his stay, he 
taught classes which included 
Daniel, Homeletics, Evangelism, 
and Theology. He also went to 
various cities to preach and meet 
with conference ministers. 

"These people have recently 
come into freedom and are con- 
fused as how to react lo it," said 
Bennett. "Now they 
advertise, publish, r 
halls for evangelism 
and distribute books. But there's 
no money." 

Bennett said the Adventist 
people want lo build up their 
seminaries. Currently, the semi- 
nar>' in Prague. Czechoslovakia 
is meeting in one of the rooms of 
their SDA church. "The 15 stu- 
dents that auend this semmary 
live in the basement of the church 
on bunkbeds," said Bennett. 

"The need there is great," said 
Bennett. While he was there, he 
checked into a few of these needs. 
He said Poland has an inadequate 
water system which would require 
a $5,000 filter. Other needs in- 
clude a pumping system for their 
sewer, computers, video cameras, 
cassette tajies, sewing machines. 
Bibles, and a van lo take the 
students to different churches. 
"And that's just the beginning," 
said Bennett. 

Bennen also talked about the 
students who are having a hard 
time raising money to go to the 
seminaries. He recalled one 
Russian student who got a three- 
year educational visa so he couid 
go to the seminary. However, he 
may not go back to visit his family 
until the three years are up, and 
they may not send him money for 

"He wants to stay and finish." 
said Bennett. "But he is having a 
hard lime coming up with the 
money." The cost of one month 
of school there is $90. 

"I want to help these people,"

SC Students Taken Bennett, 

to Court 

MEMBERS OF the Southern 
College Legal, Ethical, and So- 
cial Environment of Business 
class are getting a little court room 
experience this week in the form 
of a mock trial. The purpose for 
the trial is "to get us familiar with 
the court system," said class 
member Harvey Hillyer. 

The scenario involves a United 
States Steel employee who be- 
came concerned about the qual- 
ity of some pipes the corporation 
was selling. The man went to his 
supervisor about the problem and 
was told to sell the pipes and not 
worry about it. 

The employee was worried 
enough to go over his supervi- 
sor's head to the company vice- 
president and express his con- 
cerns. Three days later he was 
fired. So he sued the company. 

"I represent the guy who sells 
the pipes," said class member and 
prosecutor Robert Young. "I have 
to prove how the faulty pipes 
would affiect the public as a 

The prosecution and defense are 
made up of teams. Young'steam 
includes Joel Honore, Harold 
Ermshar, Joe Graham, Dawn Juhl, 
and Eric O'Brien. 

"I really appreciate all of their 
hard work. I've spent enough 
time preparing for this that it's 
not worth the credit I'm getting 
for the class," laughed Young. 
"I've learned how to go to the 
law library, find what law you're 
trying to represent, and how to 
defend it." 

Hillyer's team, the defense, 
consists of Rhonda Yates, Ed 
Schneider, Spencer Huey, Mi- 
chael Johnson, and Angela Brack- 

"I've learned how to be an at- 
torney," said HiJIyer. "I might 
consider it someday for a career. 
Actually, I like to argue with 
people because I'm always right," 
he said.

Dl was a snowy evening, 
It was cold-cold enough 
to freeze a cup of 
Campbell's Chicken 
Noodle Soup in a couple of sec- 
onds. But there was a fire crack- 
ling in the fireplace, so the house 
was warm. Suzy and her mother 
were sitting in the family room 
watching specials on television. 
As the night wore on, the snow 
ceased to fall, and the moon ap- 
peared behind a pocket of pillowy 
clouds. It was getting late. Mother

decided that it v 

"You had better get on to bed, 
Suzy, or he won't come." 
"Doyou think he'll really come?" 
asked Suzy. 

"Sure he wilt. You've been 
good haven't you?" 

"Well, yes. But maybe I should 
leave some milk and cookies just 

"O.K. But you have te promise 
to go straight to bed after you put 
them out," said mother. 
"I promise." 

When the cookies and milk were 
laid out on the table by the fire- | 
place, Suzy wenttoherroom. She 
was detemiined to stay awake to 
see if he really would come. She 
stayed motionless under the cov- 
ers for what seemed like centu- 
ries, and then she heard it. Or she 
thought she did. ft sounded like 
something was walking on the , 
roof. She wanted to get up to see 
what was out there, but she dared 
not for fear that her mother would 
find her out of bed. But she was 
obviously more tired than she 
thought she was. and soon fell 

The next morning, she jumped 
out of bed and ran downstairs. 
Just as she had suspected, the milk 
and cookies were gone. In their j 
place were brightly wrapped pack- 
ages in all shapes and sizes. "He 
came! 1 knew he would come!" 
Suzy yelled excitedly. 

"He," of course, is Santa Claus. 
Today, in the United Slates, we 
know Santa as a jolly, plump man 
who wears a red suit with white 
trim and brings gifts to all good 
boys and girls. But he hasn't 
always been portrayed this way. 
Even today, different countries 
have their own version of the gift 
bearer. ' 

The idea of Santa Claus came 
from stories about an actual per- 
son— Saint Nicholas. He was bom i 
in Asia Minor in the early fourth 
century and grew up to become '

Dear Abby and Abner^ 

Dear Abby and Abner, 

I've now asked a certain girl out twice. 
I really like her, but Vm not sure how 
she feels. How do I And out what she 
thinks without actually coming out and 
asking her. 
-Afraid to Ask 

Dear Afraid to Ask, 

Don't be over hasty in letting her know 
how you feel. Telling her only after just 
two dates might scare her off. Continue to 

ask her out. and then after a few more 
dates you will feel even more comfortable 
with her. Good luck. Hope things work 


Dear Afraid to Ask, 

I would tend to believe she likes you. 
After all she has gone out with you twice. 
I don't believe she would have gone out 
the second time if she did not like your 
company. But if you really need to know, 
ask her roommate or best friend. Remem- 
ber if you do this, you may as well ask 

Dear Abby and Abner, 

I have a problem with procrastination. 
I always wait until the last minute to do 
my studies. My grades are suffering. 

Dear Behind, 

You need to start disciplining yourself 
and your lime wisely. Think of the most 
important things to do and do them first. 
especially before you do fun things. This 
way you will enjoy what you like doing 
knowing you've got your studies out of the 


Dear Behind, 

You can't be that bad. Your letter made 
it to the Accent office in time for printing. 
I would recommend studying with a person 
or groups of people from your class. This 
way studying won't be boring and you will 
still be able to socialize. Good luck, 

P.S. Taco Bell is a great place to study 
with a friend ... free refills on sodas! 

Dear Abby and Abner, 

All guys are jerks! If there are any 
decent men, I sure haven't met them. 
Give me suggestions on how to meet 
"nice" guys. 
-Tired of Men 

Dear Tired of Men, 

The best way to meet "nice guys" is to 
be yourself. A genuine guy will notice 
you for being you and the jerky guys will 
understand that they aren't good enough 
for you anyway. Don't get loo discour- 
aged, there are "nice guys," you just need 
to be patient and be yourself 

Dear Tired of Men, 

I apologize on behalf of the male popula- 
tion. 1 have a question for you. Do you 
have any male friends? If you do, do you 
consider them jerks? What I'm getting at 

is this: maybe you have met decent men 
and overlooked them. 1 would like to 
suggest another look at people you know 
and a positive ouUook for the future. 
Remember this: decent men want decent 

Dear Abby and Abner, 

My roommate is my best friend, but he 
also has a lot of problems that he does 
not know how to deal with. He has 
family problems and his girlfriend broke 
up with him not long ago. I want to tell 
him that there is only one person to 
bring comfort, but he wants nothing to 
do with God. Every time I mention 
God, he changes the subject or tells me 
to be quiet. I hate to see him this way, 
so what should I do? 
-Trying to Witness 

Dear Trying to Witness, 

It is very hard to see one of your best 
friends bitter toward God. The best thing 
for you to do is just be there for him. Let 
him know you care and will always listen. 
Right now you may be the best example 
and the only way for him to see God. 
Don't push God on him. Keep praying for 
him and God will continue to use you to 
reach your roommate. 

Dear Trying to Witness, 

First, don't try so hard, he'll come to you 
when he's ready. The best thing you can 
do right now is to pray for him and be a 
source of life and happiness. If his life is 

miserable, he doesn't need s 
minding him by trying to get him to talk 
about it. Ask God to give you wisdom in 
how to deal with him and be positive. 
Remember Jesus met the people's needs 
before He preached to them. I'll pray for 
you both. 

Dear Abby and Abner, 

I'm a Thatcher resident blessed with 
pranked calls now and then. Almost 
everyone in the dorm gets a prank call. 
But recently, I've been getting two to 
three a night. How do I stop this most 
annoying inconvenience. 
-Hung Up 

Dear Hung Up, 

One of the easiest ways to stop prank 
calls is to leave your phone off the hook 
right before you go to bed. You might 
want to call the Thatcher Answering 
Service and let them know of your situ- 
ation. They will keep special track of your 
calls and screen them before coming 

Dear Hung Up, 

Report it to the dean. If it's an outside 
call it may be possible to find out who it is 
or what number the call was made from by 
contacting the Computer department across 
from Health Services. If it is a call made 
from a campus phone Uiere's not a lot you 
can do. Just unplug your phone or screen 
all your calls with an answering machine.

Along the Promenade... 

...In December 

By E.O. Grundset 

his is a ver>' cold day — the 
coldest so far — lime for wear- 
ing bulky sweaters and puffy 
jackets. We're checking the 
buildings iilong the promenade 
to see wiial has been done to 
"deck the halts" and advance the ■'season." 
An enormous tree has been erected in tlie 
lohby of Herin Hal!, It is decorated with 
maroon and mauve balls and shiny Hght green 
hows. Strings of cr\'stal beads encircle (he 
ice — an artistic nuLstcrpiece. Pine garlands 
are draped from the balustrade in the center 
of which is a full wreath containing maroon 
velvet Iwws and mauve poinsettias. 

In the library, a small tree stands near the 
base of the stairway. It is covered with red 
bows, artificial candy canes, and gold, silver, 
and green bails. Swaths of aluminum foil 
garlands frame the checkout desk and high- 
light the warning sign: "Sorry, we cannot 
accept bills over $5." Don't ask "why?"— 
libraries have mysterious rules! 

Hackman Hall contains some seasonal 
bulletin boards. It was rumored that Mike 
Magursky and Sherie Burke were planning 
to decorate a tree with starfish, shells, and 
other "naturar' ornaments but so far this has 

Someone has hung a thick pine garland 
between two posts on the Student Center 
porch. The garland and a centrally located 
wreath are just sort of floating there. Inside 
there are -wTcaths on the doors of the SA 
officers and in the parlor a lonely Hule tree is 
standing beside one of the windows, it is 
Hither nondescriplly decorated. 

Downstairs in the cafeteria, a huge tree 
stands in front of the checkers' desks— dark 
red and silver balls, huge striped silver stream- 
ers flow down from i.m over-sized pul^' of 
silver on the top. On the walls on either side, 
someone has formed huge surrealist-looking 
tree outlines out of strings of lights (no 

The white doors of Lynn Wood Hall sup- 
port huge blue spruce wreaths with bright red 
hows while the lamp posts are decorated with 
pme boughs and ribbon. Supposedly there is 
"an old-fashioned Christmas display" some 
place inside but. alas, the doora were locked 
sc we didn't see it this afternoon. 

The only color in Daniells Hall was John 
Durichek's bright red plaid jacket. It literally 
sparkled as he moved among the students in 
a computer lab. 

All of these building decorations, plus the 
campus tree, and banners (sort of medieval- 
looking, but festive) which the city of Col- 
legedale has attached to the lamp posts along 
Apison Pike as it curves through the "busi- 
ness district" really make this the sca.son of 
■ "gladness and light." 

While checking all this out. I encountered 
quite a few smdents scurrying about. Here's 
what some of them say they are going to do 
during Christmas vacation. 

Soo Ran Choi is going home to Atlanta but 
what she's doing there is "none of my busi- 
ness." (well!) 

Kelly Conner (in a big green sweater) is 
going shopping in Atlanta the day after 
Christinas {Lenox Square, watch out!) 

Ed Disla Oooking very suave in his trench 
coat) is going to work in local hospi- 
tals all during vacation. . 

Lorena Wolff (massive maroon 
sweater with attached winter scenes) 
is planning to sit by the fireplace and 
watch the Christmas tree (she's 
exhausted from observing baby 
chicks develop and hatch). 

Harvey Hillyer (tongue-in-cheek) 
is going "down under" for a kanga- 
roo Christmas, surfing with his pro- 
fessional surfers along the Austra- 
lian east coast (oh. sure). 

Sif Jonsdottir is going home to 
Iceland to enjoy some "real" winter 

Rtcardo Muechiutti (flaming crim- 
son jacket) is visiting his relatives in 
New York City and^lriends in Mas- 

David Hall is traveling home to 
Portland. Or., and snow skiing. 

Raraila Duval assured me she is 
not going home to Nepal (too expen- 
sive) so she's spending time in Cali- 
fornia (a poor substitute, she thinks). 
She will "contemplate her beloved 
snow-clad Himalayas ever>' day." 

Finally, your ecologically-minded 
SA President. Woody White, plans 

to see "the Green World near Wilmington. 
N.C., and experience the u-anquiJirv' of na- 
ture." (Ah. so.) 

All of these respondents and the rest of us 
will probably engage in some of the follow- 
ing typical Christmassy things, as well; 
carolling, eating Christmas cookies and fmit- 
cake. exchanging gifts, dressing up as Santa 
Claus, panicipating in The Messiah, playing 
monopoly until the wee hours, visiting Disney 
Wortd or EPCOT. trekking along on a Christ- 
mas Bird Count, watching some great T.V. 
specials (including almost ten bowl games), 
attending a Christmas Eve service, welcon\- 
ing in the New Year, and watching the Rose 

Well. .the earth didn't quake in western 
Tennessee, we're not at war with Iraq (yet), 
and everyone will probably pass the semester 
exams — so. I'm pretty safe in wishing every- 
one along the promenade and far beyond a 
very Merry Christmas.

That announcement by President George 
Bush's press spokesman Marlin Fitzwater 
came shortly after 7 p.m. Wednesday, fol- 
lowing what has become a huge offensive air 
strike against Iraqi targets near and in the city 
I of Baghdad and south Kuwait. Mediareports 
I speculate the initial strike was the largest air 
' 1 history. 

Compiled from Media Reports 

Since the confirmation of war by the presi- 
dent, there have been two massive aerial 
attacks by the united forces of the United 
States, Great Britian, France, and Saudi 
Arabia. The first strike came Wednesday 
evening, and the second early Thursday 
morning. The Iraqi military claimed it shot 
down 14 fighter planes while the Pentagon 
has confirmed just one American jet hit but 

pilot unhurt. 

In a message to the nation Wednesday night. 
President Bush said numerous efforts were 
made by many nations to avoid war. from 
economic sanctions on Iraq to diplomacy with 
its government, but because these measures 
failed, military force was the only answer. 
The president changed the code name of U.S. 
occupation in the Middle East from Opera-

IN A poll of Southem College students 
conducted by the Southern Accent two days 
pnor to the Jan. 15 United Nations deadline 
for Iraq to leave Kuwait, 91 percent believe 
the allied forces would win a war with Iraq. 
But at the same time, only 61 percent believe 
U S. forces belong in the Middle East. 

'The United States army is much more 
sophisticated and powerful than the forces of 
Iraq. But I also think we will lose many lives 
in a war that could last very long," com- 
mented freshman Shelley Campbell. 

Interestingly, although a majority believes 
U.S. forces belong in the Gulf, only 45 percent 
of females say we belong, as opposed to 78 
percent of males.

^Philadelphia. PA— The first AIDS vaccine to be tested 
on humans is siife. but its effectiveness has not yet been 
proven. The vaccine, VaxSyn. was injected into 36 
heallhy adult volunteers in 1988 at six hospitals as part' 
of the federal AIDS Vaccine Clinical Trials Network. 
All 36 showed some immune response. Side effects of 
VaxSyn were few and slight, consisting of headaches, 
feelings of sluggishness, or pain at the injection site. 
The researchers found that the vaccine suprisingly 
prompted a double immune response in the volunteers. 
Not only did Ihey develop luilibodies to the AIDS vims, 
ihey also produced immune system "killer T cells" 
specific to the AIDS virus.

manent mark. Blanchard's friend 
opted for the former. 

Blanchard says that many view 
the security department with 
contempt, but he feels that his 
job is misunderstood. "It takes a 
security guard to really under- 
stand what kind of responsibili- 

ties a security guard has," he said. 
"A security guard's job is a big 
responsibility. That's what makes 
this whole incident with these two 
individuals so controversial." 

Security Guard David Curtis 
said "this incident has further hurt 
our image with the student body. 
But I don't think they hate us as 
individuals, they hate what some

"Our jobs are similar to janitors.'

Letters to the Editors 

Forgive and Forget 

Dear Editors: 

The judge looked compassionately at the 
sobbing man on his knees before the 
bench. Yes. he was guilty. He had put his 
taxes last on his list of priorities for the 
last 10 years, thought the judge. But he 
honestly could never pay the great sum he 
owed even if he sold all that he had, 
including his wife and kids. 

So the righteous judge forgave the man 
and decided to postpone his own retirement 
to pay off the man's great debt. The man 
left the courtroom relieved but soon forgot 
how the righteous judge had forgiven him. 

Two days later at Southern College, the 
man heard that two of his fellow students 
were caught stealing test answers for the 
final exam. He was furious. "How could 
any student do something so criminal and 
risk the reputation of the college?" he 
fumed. So angry was the man that he 
wrote a paper condemning the acts of the 
two students and with the help of the 
student body began to make the reputation 
of these two men worse by resurrecting 
controversy and spreading rumors. 

The man justified his actions by claiming 
the text: "Be sure your sins shall find you 
out." "Don't people who undermine the 
trust of the school deserve to have their 
reputations trampled on?" he reasoned. 

Vnz weeks went by, but the memory of 
what happened never passed. Everyone in 
Coliegedale knew at least three versions of 
the scandalous story and were all ready 
and willing to relate their favorite version 
to others. In a short while, the reputations 
of the two men were in ruins. 

One day, the man got a summons from 
the righteous judge to appear in court. 
When he arrived, he confidently walked up 
to the bench and faced the justice, for the 
man truly believed he had done nothing 
illegal. Taxes weren't due for another six 
months, he assured himself, and his student

loans didn't have to be paid until he got 
out of school. 

But the judge looked down angrily at the 
man and said with a voice rich with ten- 
sion, "I forgave your debt to the I.R.S. 
Why couldn't you have 'compassion on 
thy fellow servant, even as I have pity on 
thee?'" And the judge was "wroth and 
delivered him to the tormentors till he 
should pay all that was due him." Then, 
turning to the court clerk, the righteous 
judge ordered him to write a proclamation 
to everyone in Coliegedale. The proclama- 
tion sounded something like this: "So 
likewise will my heavenly Father do also 
unto you if ye from your hearts forgive not 
everyone his brothers their trespasses." 

As true Christians let us forgive others as 
we have been forgiven, and let us forget 
their trespasses as Jesus has forgotten each 
and every one of our many sins. 
-Gary Blanchard 

Shut Up! 

Dear Editors: 

Like most students on a college campus, 
the library is a place where at one point or 
another one must spend some quality time 
whether it is to study in a place that 
"should be quiet" or to do some research 
for a report. A library's claim to fame 
should be the quiet atmosphere. The times 
that I have spent in the library have been 
far from quiet. The people around me 
seemed to have thought that no one else 
was trying to study, so they have con- 
ducted their loud conversations and laugh- 
ter. Do not get me wrong, there is nothing 
wrong with having fun, but the library 
should be quiet and talking held down to a 

If McKee library is going to promote 
noisiness instead of quietness they may as 
well take down all the little signs that dot 
their walls asking for quiemess because 
they are just being ignored.

Don't Turn Down Good PR 

Dear Editors: 

I have been wondering about something 
that is affecting a lot of us who are in the 
college's touring groups. 

Recently, the Gym-Masters, which I am 
currently a member of, held a gymnastics 
clinic which almost every academy in the 
Southern Union attended, along with others 
from outside of the Union. Now, a meet- 
ing of this size is going to bring a lot of 
P.R. which will in turn bring more students 
to the school, right? When I asked teach- 
ers if I would be excused from their classes 
to attend the clinic two of them said no 
and two of them said yes but all work must 
be made up or the class wouldn't be 
excused. Only one third to one half of the 
team were able to attend even though we 
were the hosts! 

Why doesn't the school excuse classes 
missed by school sponsored functions such

Think Before You Act 

Dear Editors: 

We all have problems. We all run into 
things that offend'or annoy. Things we 
think should be spoken against. In this 
country and in this school we do have a 
right to speak up, and we should. We 
should deal with them properly. The 
Accenr has given us just that opportunity. 
Each time I receive a copy of the Accent, I 
quickly turn to the letters to the editors. 
On a whole, they are well-written and 
well-meaning, but I have noticed some 
disturbing things and would like to offer a 
little advice. Advice not only on writing 
letters to the editors, but on how to deal 
with the many rude people and poorly-run 
institutions you will surely run into now 
and in the future.

TheMiddle East Crisis is Not Armageddon 

By Norman Gii!i 

I was trapped in Amman dur- 
ing the Six Day War in 1967. Six 
of us were couped together in a 
room, windows and doors locked, 
curtains drawn, and wondering 
how long we would be there. Jor- 
danian Arabs fixed axe heads lo 
handles in the streets, fired guns 
into the air, and yelled, "We'll 
drive Israelis into the Mediterra- 
nean!" Bullets ricochetted off our 
building, air raid sirens pierced 
inc crisp air, and Israeli mics flew 

We sat and studied Daniel and 
Revelation. Was this Armaged-

"as, or could be. They looked

cal scenario.

Minister Mark Denyes believes 
it portends the Second Advent. 
Both, in different ways, believe 
this will be Armageddon. 

In the Chattanooga News-Free 
Press Sunday, Jan. 13, 1991, 
appeared an article by Jim Ash- 
ley entitled, "Local Man Says 
U.S. Victory Foretold in the Book 
of Daniel." The local man is Dr. 
Ruhling, member of the Chat- 
tanooga First Seventh-day Ad- 
venlist Church. 

Dr. Ruhling believes Daniel has 
mapped out the present war. The 
paper reports as follows: "Dr. 
Ruhling says Daniel says a 'ram 
pushing westward and northward 
and southward,' and that today 
'Iraq has had contention with 
Israel (southwest) and Turkey to 
the north, as well as Kuwait at its 
southern border."" 

Then Dr. Ruhling refers lo 
Daniel 8:5, which speaks of "a 
he-goal" coming "from the west 
on the face of ihe whole earth, 
and touched not the ground and 
.smote the ram. and brake his two 
horns: and there was not power 
in the ram to stand before him. 

but he cast him down to the 
ground, and stamped upon him: 
and there was none that could 
deliver the ram out of his hand." 
The report continues. "Comment- 
ing upon this verse, Dr. Ruhling 
observes. *We have come from 
the west, and our air power may 
well prove to be the decisive 
factor.'" Does Daniel 8 really 
predict Iraq's defeat by Ameri- 
can air power? 

Space precludes an adequate 
presentation of Biblical interpre- 
tation and evaluation of the claims 
given above. So we will focus on 
a simple principle of Biblical

This Season, 

Winning is NOT 

#1 Priority 

It's finally here. For everyone who 
spent countless evenings in fee 
gymnasium last semester practicing 
your basketbaJI game, the lime to 
show your .stuff is here. Get out your 
new basketball shoes, ;ind other 
assorted Nike apparel, and come over 
and emulate your favorite NBA 
player. One condition, though: No 
bad attitudes! 

The intramural directors have 
already made it clear that sportsman- 
ship is going to take a high priority 
this season. The sheets about sports- 
manship atiatched to the schedules 
struck me funny. I've never been 
scolded in college like I was in grade 
school. Sadly, it was needed for the 
season to at least start on a good 
note. The commitment of the offi- 
cials to keep the games peaceful and 
fun is a noble goal but it is ultimately 
up to us — the players. 

The first step in the master plan 
was the choosing of the "AA" league 
teams by Jaecks and Evans. Com- 
patibility and strategic pla

The second step in this turn around 
was the identification of the problem. 
Making this aware to all partii '

before, at least now he will know 
what is expected of him.

the free throw line shooting two foul

second is made. The score is now 50-

in the black uniforms calls a time-out. 

This team, in the black uniforms, are 
the Beta Kappa Tau Saints—a basket- 
ball team affiliated with the Beta Kappa 
Tau Club. With a chance to win the 
game, the Saints seize the ball, a man 
is open, he gets the ball, he shoots, the 
buzzer sounds after the ball hits the 
rim, but the ball doesn't go in . The 
final score reads BKT 50 to Knoxville 
51. Despite the lost, spirits are high 
and each player shakes hands with their 

The BKT Saints were organized in 
November of 1989 by team captains 
Kevin Pride and Richard Pulliam. The 
basketball team is a division of BKT as 
a whole. The eleven-member team 
travels with the BKT Club as they put 
on Advenlist Youth Society (AYS) 
programs at different local churches. 
After the Saturday evening program, 
the club and church members get to- 
gether to play basketball. 

It is very common in black churches 
to have a basketball team associated 
with AYS. The purpose of the team is 
to play basketball with different people 
in a variety of surroundings. "As a 

team, we feel we can show positive 
attitudes," said Tony Thedford, BKT 
president. "We feel we can have fun 
and shake hands after it's over." 

The club has recently been marked 

. "black club,' 


includes white players. "The white 
players on our team are members of the 
club [BKT]," said Thedford. "As I stated 
at the beginning of the year, BKT is for 
everyone who wants to be involved." 

Thedford said, "The club has a black 
emphasis but it is not a segregated club. 
I think having white players on the team 
is a manifestation of what we are trying 
to accomplish." 

The team has not played many games 
simply because BKT has not made many 
trips. The club has been concentrating 
on this campus. "It's sometimes hard 
getting games scheduled," said 

Next semester the team is planning 
to travel to Alabama, North Carolina, 
and Georgia. A BKT tournament will 
take place in January. Teams from 
Nashville, and Chattanooga 

'ill be 

nted. "Ifv 

will still have fun," said Thedford. 

The 1990-91 team members are: Chris 
Murray, Kevin Pride, Sean Johnson,

BLOOD GIVEN by Southern 
College students during the latest 
Blood Assurance drive might find 
its way to the Middle East by the 
end of the month. 

For the first time since World 
War II, civilian blood centers are 
providing blood to augment the 
military blood program in sup- 
port of Operation Desert Shield. 
"We've been asked to send 25 
units a week to the operation," 
said Gary Wilkenson. a Chat 
tanooga Blood Assurance admin- 
istrator. "That number could 
easily double in a week if hostil 
lies break out" Wilkenson added 
that Southern College donations 
would be used for tiiat purpose. 
Blood Assurance is a non-profit 
organization that recruits, col- 
lects, and distributes blood to the 
Chattanooga area. But it also 
benefits SC students. 

"If 25 percent of the student 
body gives this year, the whole 
college is covered if som 
needs blood," said Heather Wil- 
liams, C.A.B.L. director. Wil 
Hams noted that (he person who 
donates blood and their immedi- 
family is also guaranteed 
blood free of charge. 

C.A.B.L. sponsors four blood 
drives each school year in order 
to reach the 25 percent goal. "Tlie 
last nvo have been very success- 
Williams said. "But winter 
blood drives tend to be the

tionally as well."

Dean Kinsey 
Leavs for 

By Gan Cnize 

DEAN KINSEY, former head of Southern 
College's Alumni Association and Public 
Relations department, accepted a job as the 
director of development at Loma Linda 
University's School of Medicine. 

Kinsey's new responsibility is to raise funds 
for the university's many areas of medical 

Kinsey, who came to Southern in 1986, 
worked in Development with Jack McClarty 
before taking over the alumni and public 
relations activities in December, 1987. He 
was also very active in the faculty wellness 
program, organizing seminars on wellness 
and health care. The Faculty Wellness objec- 
to help instruct faculty members on

down. "The health 

initiate helped to 


program he helped 
; the school many 
the last three years," 
said Phil Garver, head of SC's Physical Edu- 
cation department. 

An active man, Kinsey competed in the 
Southern College Triathlon the past two years, 
with a team two years ago and by himself in 
this year's triathlon, which he placed first in 
his age group. 

Kinsey was also very active with the stu- 
dents, often leading out in [he Tliatcher Hall 
Sabbath school. He could also be seen 
mingling with the students at SC functions. 
The decision to make the move was not an 
easy one for Kinsey. but he knew it was what 
the Lord wanted him to do. "It's not a move 
I asked for," said Kinsey. "They looked for 
me and talked to me about the position last 
July. I felt it was a career decision that the 
Lord wanted me to take. I'll miss the kids 
who worked in the PR department. I know 
I'm going to miss teaching at the Thatcher 
Hall Sabbath school, especially. 1 just really 
love the kids at SC." 

Don Sahly, Southern College president, said 
he will announce Kinsey's replacement next 

Thai's Success 

It's doing your job the best you can 
And being kind to your fellow man: 
Jt's making motley— but holding friends 
And true to your aims and ends; 
It's figuring how and learning why 
And looking forward and thinking high 
And dreaming a little and doing much; 
It's keeping always in closest touch 
With what is finest in word ami deed; 
It's being tliarough, yet making speed: 
It's daring blithely the file ofchivice 
While making labor a brave romance; 
It's going onward despite defeat 
And fighting starchly, but keeping sv.-e€t; 
It's being clean and it's playing fair; 
It's laughing lightly at dame despair: 
It's looking up at the stars above 
and driTiking deeply of life and love: 
It's struggling on with the will to win 
Bui taking loss with a cheerfitl grin: 
It's sharing sorrow and work and mirth 
And making better this good old earth: 
It's striving through strain and stress: 
It's doing your noblest— that's success.

Jesus, the Master Problem 
Solver. lays out a plan for us. In 
Matthew 18:15-17. He says, "If 
your brother sins against you, go 
and show him his fault, just be- 
tween the two of you. If he lis- 
tens to you. you have won your 
brother over. But if he will not 
listen, take one or two others 
along, so that 'every matter may 
be established by the testimony 
of two or three witnesses.' If he 
refuses to listen to them, tell it to 
the church; and if he refuses to 
listen even to the church, treat 
him as you would a pagan or a 
tax collector." 

We cannot apply this directly 
to every situation, so lets gel down 
to the principle. 
"Just between the two of you." 


r first 

tion is not to write a letter to the 
editors. We should keep the 
matter as private as possible. If, 
for instance, you have a problem 
with K.R.'s Place, try to talk to 
the manager or write a letter to 
him or her. Don't go around with 
some misguided '60s mentality 
complaining to everyone you see. 
Satan is called the accuser of the 
brethren. Don't share his work 
or you may share his fate (Rev. 

"If he listens to you. you have 
won your brother over." This 
reveals the attitude we should 
have from the beginning to the 
completion of the process. Our 

goal is to "win him over." Our 
job is not to humiliate, t 
demn, and to destroy, but to build 
up. Not just winning them over 
to your way of thinking but show- 
ing them Christ in the way you 
deal with them. You will find 
that if approached with this atti- 
tude many a seemingly hopeless 
situation can end up positive. If 
you do not have this attitude, think 
twice and even three times be- 
fore you Stan the process. You 
could be rightfully seen as worse 
than they. 

"Take it before the church." If 
the second approach does not 
bring the desired results it is time 
for the letter to the editors. 

"If he refuses . . . treat him as a 
pagan or tax collector." This does 
not mean open season to "rape, 
plunder, and kill." Paul elabo- 
rates on a similar situation, "Do 
not associate with him in order 
that he may feel ashamed. Yet 
do not regard him as an enemy, 
but warn him as a brother" (2Thes 
3:14,15). The "win him over" 
attitude still applies. 

So before you whip out that 
pen, stop and think. Ask your- 
self, "What is my anitude?" Pray 
about it. When you know your 
attitude is right then start through 
the proper channels as outlined 
in Matt. 18:15-17. I have found, 
and I'm sure that you will also 
find, that most of these can be 
solved at step one and almost 
none make it to step three.

devils go worid-wide to gather 
people to the battle (vs. 13-14. 
16). 3.) verse 15, sandwiched 
between two references to the 
battle, is a repetition of part of 
the Laodicean message of Reve- 
lation 3:14-18. What do these 
three contextual factors tell us? 
They tell us that the battle is only 
after major international events, 
is woridwide (not just the Middle 
East cf. Rev. 14:14-20). and has 
something to do with God's end- 
time church. 

Although we cannot do justice 
here to unwrapping these three, it 
is informative to note that the 
spirits of devils work through 
three avenues (dragon, beast, and 
false prophet) which the Seventh- 
day Adventist Bible Commentary 
says are paganism, Catholicism 
and Apostate Protestantism (vol 
7, p. 844; cf. Ellen G. White, 
Great Controversy, p. 588). 
These three avenues are the 
counterpart of the three angel's 
messages (Revelation 14:6-13) 
which also are going worldwide 
to gather people out. This double 
gathering (in Revelation 16 and 
14) speak of the present process 
of forming groups that will ulti- 
mately become the sides in the 
worldwide battle of Armageddon. 
This will take place after the close 
of probation, and none of God's 
people will die. It will be the 
grand climax of truth over error 
just before, and including Christ's 

retum(Rev. 14:14-20, 19:11-21; 
cf. Great Controversy, pp. 635- 

For those wishing to study this 
subject further, 1 recommend two 
books written by Dr. Hans K. 
LaRondelle of the Theological 
Seminary, Andrews University. 
They are The Israel of God in 
Prophecy (AU Press, 1983), 
dealing with principles of pro- 
phetic interpretation; and the 
more popular version. Chariots 
of Salvation (R&H, 1987), in 
which he presents the Biblical 
drama of Armageddon. Both can 
be obtained at our Adventist book 

At times of crisis, it is under- 
standable that we get caught up 
in passing events, so that we focus 
on the crisis more than on Christ. 
But the Biblical view of final 
events is clear. Christ has al- 
ready won at the cross. That 
victory guarantees that this is His 
world, He is in control, and He 
will have the last word. This is 
what Armageddon will cleariy 
demonstrate; for properly under- 
stood, Armageddon is the ulti- 
mate pre-advent unfolding of that 
victory in history. 

The good news is He is coming 
for us soon. Our future is liter- 
ally out of this world. He asks us 
to come and rest in Him (Mat- 
thew 1 1 :28-30), for "I will never 
leave thee, nor forsake thee 
(Hebrews 13:5); for "I am with 
you alway, even unto the end of 
the worid" (Matthew 28:20). 1

.In the World 

Damman, SAUDI ARABIA— The oil spill blamed 
Saddam Hussein threatens to wipe out one of the 
Persian Gulfs most prized Products-its shrimp. 
February through April is the prime season for the 
shrimping industry , and on a good day, each of 20 
companies might bring in as much as seven tons of 
;hrimp. But shrimping this year, already curtailed 
because of the war, could die completely as millions of 
b^rels of oil drift down the coast and over Saudi 
shrimp areas. More than 100 other commercial sea fish 
also threatened. 

Amman, JORDAN — At least 412 newborn babies in 

Jordan have been named "Saddam" in honor of Iraqi 
President Saddam Hussein. An official said that the

ion of Kuwait, has been given to 6 percent of all 
male babies bom since then. 

_ LITHUANIA — Knowing that the world was looking 
elsewhere, Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev's army 
tamped a bloody boot on separatist Lithuania-a 
warning that the union of Soviet republics will not be 
allowed to splinter. One could only wonder if the 
crackdown marked an ominous turning point for 
Gorbachev's troubled nation. Ethnic separatism has 
always been a blind spot for Gorbachev-he has neither 
sympathy or patience for it. TTie new kind of world 
George Bush was ready to fight for is suppose to be 
founded on "the rule of law, not the law of the jungle." 
By sending his tanks into Lithuania, Gorbachev puts 
unity above reform and stirs the world's fears of a new 

MOSCOW— Here's a new one: Saddam Hussein is 
Joseph Stalin's grandson. That's what the Soviet 
magazine Sobesednik printed. According to this tall 
tale. Statin's son Jakob was taken prisoner by the Nazis 
during World War II. When the Soviets captured a 
German general, the Germans offered a prisoner swap, 
but Stalin refused to trade the general for his son, who 
died in captivity. This much has been verified. The 

wist has Jakob not dying, but escaping the Nazis 
and making his way down the Continent to the Middle 
East, where he settled in a small village in Iraq, married 
peasant woman and fathered a son the world knows as 
Saddam Hussein. One hole: Saddam was bom in 
1937, two years before World War II began.

Industrial Drive Resembles 
Iraqi Runway; Sewer and 
Gas Lines to be Replaced 

FOR THE last three weeks 
Industrial Drive has resembled the 
Iraqi desert after a bombing run. 

Fortunately for SC students, the 
college is not about to be overtaken 
by the U.N. coalition. Industrial 
Drive is actually under construction 
to replace the sewer lines, some gas 
lines, and to renovate the road itself. 
The main reason for replacing the 
present system involves money. 

According to Dale Bidwell, vice 
president of finance, the present 
sewer system is not efficient enough. 
Last year, the school paid as much 
for waste in six months as v 
the entire previous year. 

Heavy rainfall seeping into the 
system and flowing through a release 
valve is to blame. The city reads the 
amount of waste flowing through 
the valve and then determines how 
much to bill for the proper treatment 
and disposal of the waste, "l^iat is 
throwing money down the drain." 
said Bidwell. 

In addition to the sewer 
replacement, a new gas line is being 
installed. The plan is to furnish 
each building on campus with its 

own central heating system and do away 
with the present system that is operating 
at only 15 to 20 percent efficiently. 

Industrial Drive has been lorn up t 
accommodate plans of adding nt\ 
buildings to the area. New sewage and I 
gas lines under the road will be ready 
for future hook-ups and will not need 
to be moved again. 

The road itself will be repaved and 
widened. Included in the plans is a 
handicapped parking area be' ' 
Summerour Hall.

Security Ups Image With Squad Car 

The Campus 
...In Brief 

THE CAMPUS safety 
department has purchased a patrol 
car for the first time in Southern 
College history. The white 1986 
Ford Crown Victoria was once a 
"police special," and comes 
complete with flashing green 
lights and a speed radar. 

"The patrol car is a heavy-duty 
vehicle, designed to patrol at low 
speeds," said Campus Safety 
DirectorDale Tyrrell. "Wedidn't 
purchase it to chase other cars. 
The department is trying to 
portray a different image." 

Tyrrell said the car's main 
purpose is to look professional. 
"We want people who are here 
for less than honorable reasons to 
see that we are professional, and 
take the school and the security 
department seriously." 

The duties of the 10 student 
employees and two full-time staff 
members of the campus safety 
deparmient will not change with 
the acquisition of the patrol 
vehicle. Tyrrell said the 
employees' duties will still 
include giving parking tickets, a 
few" moving violations, and 
checking buildings and unfamiliar 
or suspicious persons on campus. 
According to Southern College 
l^esrdent Donald Sahly, the patrol 
S'f<„"''^ purchased for about 
SI .400. "I think that most 
students would realize the money 
that we saved by purchasing a 
used vehicle," Tyrrell said. 

The safety department also 
bought a used Ford Taurus station 
™gon from McKee Baking 
Company in December, 1990 for 
ji reduced price. The waBon is 
l^etng used for transporting 
students to and from places such

The Oldsmobile formerly used 

as a transport vehicle is now a 

possession of Southern College 

rather than die safety department. 

The department has wanted a 

patrol car since the first of July, 
and Tyrrell said the car and the 
new safety department employee 
uniforms, which began to be worn 
this year, are both steps toward a 
more professional department.

THE DORM rooms in Talge 
Hall will soon be ihe cleanest they 
have been in a long time. 

On Thursday. Feb. 7, at 8:30 
p.m., Talge Hall will host its first 
Open House in nearly three years. 
Students, faculty, and guests will 
have an opportunity to visit the 
men's dorm and view the rooms 
of those choosing to participate. 
Each participant's room will be 
evaluated by a team of three 
faculty members: Bill Wohlers, 
dean of student services, Ted 
Evans, P.E. instructor, and Kassy 
Krause, assistant dean of women. 
Judging will be conducted 
considering the following criteria: 
cleanliness, originality, 
organization, warmth, and type 

of music played during the event. 
A first prize as well as a grand 
prize will be awarded for each 
floor. First prize winners will 
receive a clock radio/cassette 
player. The grand prize will be 
the radio plus a watch. 

Ron Qualley, dean of men, is 
looking forward to the event. 
"Though most deans don't like to 
go through it, I think it's nice to 
give Thatcher residents, guests, 
and other students a chance to 
see how the other half lives."

Music Groups Re-

By Brenda Keller 

Symphony Orchestra and 
Southern Singers, along with 
several other area choirs, will 
perform in the gala re-opening 
of Chattanooga's Memorial 
Auditorium tonight at 8 p.m. 

Also performing is Shirley 
Jones, actress/singer who

Orchestra will accompany her, 
providing an added challenge 
since the orchestra did not

The auditorium, seating 
approximately 4,000, has

equipment, and the addition of 
1 ,500 seats.

Peace demonstrators, who outnumbered war 
supporters, argued that the U.S. troops are 
fighting for an unjust cause. Slogans such as 
"No Blood for Oil." "Stop the Killing," and 
"Support Troops Not War" were printed on 
signs and banners carried by peace supporters. 
"War IS wrong. Hussein is definitely in the 
wrong, but we are wrong for starting the 
war," said John Johnson, a member of the 
People's Justice Alliance who was among 
the iOO or so peace demonstrators. 

Supporters of die military action argued 
that the United States should protect its oil. 
"Oil is just like the air you breathe; they take 
away your oil and you live like a primitive 
man," said Harley Edmundson, a Vietnam 
Veteran. Throughout speeches given by peace 
demonstrators, Edmundson yelled, "God bless 
George Bush and the USA!"

nursing homes, and the focus 
"Making a Dream a Reality. 

LTHC club vice-president 
Robert Young said the students 
gained more from going t 
seminar than just getting 
information about the topic i 
discussion. "The bigge 
advantage was the opportunity 
network with administrators and 
be exposed to the terminology 
issues and problems going on ir 
the industry," Young said. 

"Specifically, we now know 
more about how to obtain 
restraint-free environment in t 
nursing homes we will work with 
in the future," Young said. 

Fourty people attended the 
meetings, and Young said the 
students from Southern wei 
only students present from the

Trash It! 

Dear Editors: 

I don't believe it! Ijust don't believe it! I 
have been sitting here on the porch just 
waiting for it to happen, and it finally did. 
Someone actually picked up the trash. It 
seems so odd that only one out of 94 people 
did something about the trash. Why didn't 
the other 93 people do anything about the 
unwanted trash lying on the ground? Maybe, 
by analyzing the results of my study, we can 
find an answer. 

The study which 1 undertook consisted of 
watching people's reactions to trash on 
Southern's campus. This is what happened. 
The first step was to collect some trash. I 
went to one of the trash rooms in Talge Hall, 
and I picked up a Dr. Pepper can, a crumpled 
up piece of white paper, and an empty candy 
bar wrapper. When 1 had gathered up these 
items. I proceeded to the front porch of the 
dorm. As soon as no one was looking, I set 
these pieces of trash onto the sidewalk in 
front of the steps. 1 set them down in such a 
fashion that anyone who walked in or out of 
the men's dorm would have to step in between 
these items of trash. 1 then took a seat in the 
lobby window to record my results. 

All of the people I watched were men that 
resided in Talge Hall. Strangely, 11 of the47 
men didn't even see the trash. However, 33 
of the men looked directly at the trash but 
didn't even bother to pick it up. A few of the 
guys even lost their balance because they 
weren't watching where the were going. One 
heroic individual, Walt Hutton, despite peer 
pressure, did pick up the trash. I was so 
excited that I went out and told him of my 
experiment and thanked him for his good 
deed. Hence, two possessed Talgehallians 
even decided to send the trash flying to 
another destination with a swift kick. I think 
I got the best kick out of that. 

When I had completed 47 men's reactions, 
I went and repeated the exact study in front 
of Thatcher Hall. My results were similar. 

Nineteen ladies didn't see the trash. Twenty- 
six of them did see the trash but kept walking, 
although they did maintain their balance. 
None of the women picked up the trash, but 
yes, two fair and yoimg Thatcherhallians even 
kicked the trash as if to add their own unique 

I now go back to the question. Why didn't 
the other 93 people do anything about the 
trash? From the results, one could say that 
they just don't care. Maybe they feel that 
someone else will pick it up. Maybe they are 
all in such a hurry here at Southern thai they 
don't take a couple seconds to care. Lets do 
our part to keep our world clean by staring at 

Decorate More 

Dear Editors; 

I would like to take this time to thank my 
Interpersonal Communications teacher, Don 
Dick, for motivating my classmates and I to 
improve the appearance of the classroom we 
meet in. We discussed some options for 
improvement in class as an assigrmient and 
decided to implement some of them such as: 
buying a Pica tree, new posters; and 
decorating the bulletin board. All of these 
improvements will be paid for by the college, 
but we students are implementing them by 
working through our teacher. Little 
improvements like these make the room more 

From my experience, a well decorated 
classroom helps people to feel less intimidated 

in da: 

. Ton 

s that s 

not decorated are too formal for good class 
discussion. We as students need to become 
more serious about improving some of the 
unappealing classrooms we attend because 
wespendalotofmoney tosit in them. There 
arc still a lot of rooms that have bare 
depressing walls. I have already decorated a 
bulletin board for this class. ! hope thai you 
will join me in the effort to improve our 
classroom atmosphere. 
-Brenda Arnold 


Dear Editors: 

I have come to the conclusion that the 
women's dorm needs to get their intercom 
system working again. One might ask why it 
should be fixed when it probably would be a 
nuisance anyway by infringing on the privacy 
rights of the dorm students. My argument to 
this question would be that each intercom in 
our room has three settings on them. The 
setting are privacy, norm, and call. If a 
resident wants privacy, she can turn the switch 
to "privacy." 

Either the deans or the residents assistants 
should be able to make emergency 
announcements throughout the whole dorm 
when needed. When the earthquake scare for 
Dec. 3, 1991 came, the residents of the 
women's dorm were informed that the R.A.'s 
would run through the halls telling us to 
evacuate if there was a need to . I fear that 
if the earthquake were to happen, the heavy 
sleepers would most likely either sleep 
through it or think that they were dreaming. 
The need for an emergency intercom system 
in the women's residence hall is essential for 
our own safety. Even if the current intercoms 
that we now have can't be fixed, there needs 
to be some type of an alarm that sounds in 
our rooms and not only an alarm in the hails.

Print Menus 

Dear Editors: 

I just wanted to write you a short note 
concerning a question I have about your 
newspaper. I thought it would be really neat 
if somehow you could get a list of the foods 
that the cafeteria would be serving during the 
week and print them somewhere in your 
paper. 1 think that it would be really nice to 
just have to look in the paper and see if they 
were serving something that you want to eat. 
I just think that it would make it a lot easier 
on the students, so that they would not have 
to run up to the cafeteria all the time just to 
find out that they are not serving anything 
that they might like to eat.

Desert Storm and the 
New World Order 

Some have asked that I take the 
time to give a fuller evaluation of 
the predictions made by Dr. 
Ruhling in the Chatanooga News- 
Free Press Sunday Jaj\. 13. 1991; 
claims which he repeated in an 
extended interview on TV 53. Jan. 
22. 1991. He claims Daniel 8 
predicts that America is the goat 
that comes from the west with its 
planes ("without touching the 
ground" v. 5 NIV throughout) to 
defeat the ram, which is Iraq (vs. 
3-8). For "the vision concerns 
thetimeoftheend"9v.l7). We 
noted in the last Accent that 
Daniel 8:20:21 designates the ram 
as Medo-Persia and the goat as 
Greece. Ruhling's point is that 

Norman R. Gulley 

the animals can have more than 
one representation, and that the 
key is "the vision concerns the 
time of the end" (Dan. 8:17. cf. v. 
19). We will only look at this 
aspect of his predictions. 

We need to study Daniel 8 
within the whole context of 
Daniel. There are parallel visions 
given in Daniel, which all 
accomplish two things: I. Cover 
a great expanse of human history, 
and 2. Focus on the time of the 
end. The attached presents these 

The accompanying chart shows 
the double focus — on the expanse 
of history and on the end-time. 
Both reveal God's relation to

human history: He is in control, 
indicated by His long-range 
forecast of history, and He knows 
what will take place in the end- 
time. The two must not be 
confused. Dr. Ruhling takes 
symbols clearly applied to nations 
in the past and attempts to apply 
them to nations currently on the 
scene of history. Ruhiing, in the 
TV 53 interview on Jan. 22. 1991, 
suggested that one of the ribs in 
the mouth of the bear is Lithuania, 
the country presently invaded by 
Russian troops. From the chart 
the Bible indicates that the bear 
is Medo-Persia, and equivalent 
to the ram which Ruhling claims 
is Iraq. Applying the biblical 
scene to Ruhling's interpretation, 
this means that Iraq will overcome 
Lithuania. This should illustrate 
the danger of imposing on 
scripture ideas from outside of 

We must remember that the 
basic Protestant hermeneutic 
(principle of biblical 
interpretation) is sola scriptura, 
that is, the Bible is its own 
interpreter. This is held in 
opposition to the Catholic 
principle that the Church 
interprets scripture. A simple 
point needs to 
be made: any 
interpretation of 
scripture, even 

Protestant. For 
example, to 
make Daniel 8 

predict Desert Storm and 
outcome and Daniel 7 speak of 
Lithuania, is no better than slating 
that the Bible promotes Sunday 
as the Christian Sabbath, becau; 
such ideas are forced upon 
scripture from external souro 
Spreculation is rampant 
Christendom when it come 
writing or speaking on e 
events. Desert Storm has fueled 
the verbiage. For exampli 
Sunday, Jan. 20, 1991, or 
Channel 2, a program called 
"There's hope" (Program video: 
A 840, PO Box 45100, Atlanta, 
Ga. 303450). claimed that biblical 
Babylon is modem Iraq (it does 
cover some of the same territory). 
The destruction of Babylon, as 
given in Revelation 17-18, was 
claimed to be God's prediction 
that Iraq will be defeated. So the 
word "Babylon," found in these 
biblical chapters (Re. 17-19) is 
taken literally as modem Iraq. 
Then, completely contrary to the 
literal interpretation, the speakei 
claimed that the call to "come oui 
of Babylon." (Rev. 18:2-5) is a 
spiritual call to come to Christ 
But one simply cajmot have il 
both ways. Babylon is either 
literal or spiritual in meaning. 
Launching beyond the safe 
interpretive controls of scripture, 
the meaning of scripture is up for 
grabs, and the newspaper of 
mission of the preacher becomes 
the norm for biblical 
interpretation. The sad fact

ministers are as Catholic in their 
approach to scripture ai

We Can Learn From Black History Week 

By Woody While, Student 

Why don't we have a White 
History Week where we are in 
control of ail the programs, and 
where we talk about our history 
and culture? This is one 
question that many people ask 
around this time of year. 

Morris was really hungry. He 
had been working all day, and 
was looking forward to eating 
at that new restaurant tonight! 
He couldn't wait to taste some 
tuna fish and fresh milk! 

Here he was. As he walked 
up, he smelled the wonderful 
aroma of food. He sat on the 
nearest step and looked over 
the menu. It had no pictures 
and he could not read, so he 
decided to wait for the waitress. 
Soon, she was at his step. He 
asked for their specialties, and 
she said, "Well, we have the 
best raw meat around and die 
Gravy train is wonderful! But 
it's my first day, and I'm not 
very familiar with the menu 
yet. Can I bring you some dog 
biscuits while you wait? "No," 
he said. "Do you have tuna or 

Just then, the large manager 
barked from across the porch. 
"Hey! We don't serve yor kind 

here! Ditten' you read the 
sign? Git chore fuzzy self 
outtahere!" As Morris 
painfully realized that the 
manager was talking to him, he 
also realized that he was the 
only cat on the porch. The 
other dogs stopped lapping and 
looked in Morris' direction. 
Morris made no move, but 
politely said, "What does the 
sign say? I can't read." "It 
says 'No cats served here,'" 
said the manager, "so git out!" 

Morris could not understand. 
"I am a living, breathing animal 
who is hungry just like the 
dogs. 1 have four legs, and a 
brain, and sensitive feelings 
loo." Morris slowly walked off 
the porch. "One day," he 
thought, "we will be able to eat 
on the same porch as dogs, and 
our kittens will be accepted 
because they are fellow 

Obviously, this is an 
exaggerated illustration. 

This next week is Black 
History week. For many years 
the Afro-American race was 
treated as an inferior segment 
of the American populace. 
They were held in bondage 

well over 150 years, and when 
they were given freedom, they 
were socially ostracized for 
another hundred years. Still, 
today there is blatant racism, 
discrimination, and oppression 
inherent in our "contemporary, 
civilized" society. None at this 
school have been thrown out of 
a restaurant or asked to leave 
because we are of one race. 
But just a few short years ago. 

It is hard for us to imagine. 

I look forward to Black 
History Week because it is a 
tremendous opportunity, for 
me, as white person to learn. I 
am not black. I never will be. 
During this week, I can go to 
the programs and listen to our 
black leader as they speak 
about their history, their culture 
and their expectations of the 
future. It is the one week 
where the issues that are so 
important to the Afro- 
Americans can be openly 
addressed. It is the week where 
they have the spotlight to 
explain their background and 
voice their frustrations. We 
were not slaves in this country. 
We were not Created as sub- 

human for 250 years. That is 
why we don't have While 
History Week. We have Black 
History Week so we will never 
forget how wrongly the Afro- 
Americans were treated. We 
have Black History Week so 

progress in obtaining that level 
of equality which sets our 
country heads and shoulders 
above the rest in the world. 
Instead of looking at Black 
History Week as a racially 
tense week, let's strive to 
achieve a new level of 
understanding, admiration, and 
respect for our brothers and 
sisters of a different skin 
pigmentation. Approach Black 
History Week with an open 
heart and mind. Look for 
something to get out of it. 
There is so much to be 
accomplished in our society. 
Here at Southern College, let's 
all try hard to do away with 
racial division. Lets' try hard 
to understand each others 
differences, and to accept each 
other for who we are. It's 
really not that difficult.

Accent's "AA" Game of the Week 

By Timothy Burrill 

AT THE beginning of the season, McKenzie 
and Young were considered the two best 
teams in "AA" league. Last Wednesday, 
these two undefeated teams met for the first 
time on the basketball court 

Young's team got the upper hand in a closely 
contested banle, 86-78. Captain Bobby 
Young attributed the team's success to 
"teamwork and good fundamental 

In the early stages of the game, McKenzie's 
team used good outside shooting by Richard 
Puiliam and John Gay to take charge. Pulliam 
and Gay combined for three early three-point 

But the inside game of Yoimg allowed them 
to take a 10 point lead, 31-21. McKenzie 
gave an answer, though, with a 13-5 run, 
cutting the lead to two. 

With time running out in the first half. 
Young bounced back. They regained 
command of the game, leading 45-38 at half 

The second half was closely contested, with 
no team taking real command. Young scored 
just one more point than McKenzie in the last

Smith Unable to Stop Balanced Play of Mathis 

Accent's Women's League Game of the Week 

By Timolhy E 

WOMEN'S LEAGUE action is intense. 
This was demonstraied in a game which 
pitted the highly favored Mathis versus the 
surprising team of Smith. 

Balanced scoring was the key to the success 
of Mathis. Oulof nine players, eight scored 

Smith's leading scorer was Jeanie Bradley, 
with 13 points. Her inside scoring and 
rebounding were the real strength of Smith. 

Joi Richards led Mathis with 10 points. 
Richards' drives to the basket accounted for 
much of the offensive threat of her team. 

At half time, Mathis had pulled out with a 
five point lead, 17-12. 

In the second half, Mathis' outside game 
and inside penetration were just too much for 
Smith. The final score was 36-26. 

An outstanding performance was turned in 
by Jenny Neuhaus of Smith. Her backcourl 
defense and dribbling ability were unmatched. 
Interestingly, previous to this season, she had 
not played basketball. 
























Jenny Neuhaus' strong backcourt game J""* 
kept Smith in the game during early action. Mathis

Part VI: Caving 

WITH THE coming of winter, it's time to 
take our sports indoors or underground. 
Subject: Caving 

Place: Grindstone cavern just outside of 

Description: A deep twisting cavern 
ranging in depth from 10 ft. to 100 ft., in 
total blackness. 

What I Liked: I loved the feeling of 
exploration of new territory. It gives you a 

; of accomplishment and a surge to do 
it again. Also, the fact that it is warm below 
ground while it's cold above. 
What I Didn't like: I hated the mud and 
slime that you are covered in when you 
come out. It is really messy! The cave is 
too small. 

Suggestions: Wear clothes you never want 
to wear, use, or have again. Basically, they 
will most definitely be ruined. Bring several 
flashlights and go with someone who is an 
experienced caver. 

How to Get There: Ask around campus to 
get directions as it is kind of hard to find the

One SC Student Watches 
the War Closely, Waiting 

By Andrew C. Nash 

AS THE Iraqi govemmenl flaunts American 
. prisoners on the television screen, one SC 
I student watches, hopeful — yet scared-MDf 
what she might see. 

"Ii's a helpless feeling," she says. 

Rebecca Webb, a junior psychology major 
from Florida, has three cousins, all combat 
pilots, all brothers, involved in the Gulf War. 
Two of them, Captains Eric and James, are 
missing in action (MIA's). The United States 
reports 13 MIA's at the lime of this writing. 

Eric. 22, and James, 26, were probably shot 
down by anti-aircraft artillery while on 
bombing raids Jan. 21, says Webb. "We 
don't know if they've been captured. ..of if 
they're killed." Webb's other cousin Scott, a 
24-year-old lieutenant, returned to base safely. 
"They (Eric. James, and Scott) usually keep 
in contact with each other by radio." notes 
Webb. The trio had flown bombing raids to 
undisclosed sites since Jan. 16, the first day 
, of the war. 

When Scott landed the following Sunday

evening, he expected to meet his brothers. 
"He had just had a full conversation with 
them (in the air)," says Webb. But Eric and 
James didn't fly back that night, and they 
haven't been heard from since." 

Webb couldn't believe it when she first 
learned of her cousins' disappearance. "The 
phrase 'this happens to everyone else's family, 
not mine' went through my mind." 

Webb says her whole family, an Adventist 
family, is "broken up" by what has happened. 
"If we were not a praying family before, we 
are now," she says. "You have to ask the 
Lord to take it. because your humanity lakes

Each of Webb's cousins joined the service 
right after their high school graduations. 
Webb recalls their message before leaving 
for Saudi Arabia in early August: "No matter 
what happens, remember that we love you." 

Though Webb remains a strong supporter 
of President Bush and the American war 
effort, she wonders how long it will take to 
discover the condition of her cousins. 

"I go to bed every night wondering, 'Are 
they okay?"' she says. While similar 
questions in history have remained 
unanswered, Webb hopes this time will be

stranger. The Arab, after talking with them 
for a few hours, invited them both to his 
house for lunch. "This is not the exception 
but the rule. It is common place," said Zill. 

But as the deadline drew closer, the events 
surrounding the student missionaries began 
to point towards war. 

"The Israelis began debating whether or 
not to pass out gas masks and I remember 
thinking this is really serious . . . this is really 
going to happen," said Zill. 

Zill recalls seeing people stocking up on 
food and other provisions because of the threat 
of war. In early November, they got their gas 

masks, received training on how to properly 
wear the mask, how to inject themselves in 
case of poisoning, and how to seal up a safe 
room. "People were scared of the war," said 

Because of a combination of fear of a war 
and lack of work Zill decided lo return home. 
"I felt the possibility of war was high and . . 
. getting out late would not be a pretty sight," 
Ziil's prediction held true. When Phillips 
received word to leave, he found it extremely 
difficult to find a seat on a departing flighf. 
He took the only flight he could find, and ii 
ended up being the last plane out before the 

Zill felt bad because of his decision to leave 
early. "When I signed up, I knew it wouldn't 
be easy all the time. I felt as if I was reneging 
on a commitment I had made ... to myself," 
said Zill. But he said he knows he made the 
right decision. 

Zill hopes to go back to Israel after the 

situation in the Middle East settles down. "I 

find Israel fascinating and I like the people." 

Phillips wants to return, as well. But he 

added, "It's good to be home." I 


More signiricam than Desert Stomi is the

Along the Promenade... 

...In January 

THIS IS (he coldest day of the 
year so far— we've already 
peaked at 3 1° and are fast sliding 
down to a predicted low of 17° 
and that's cold considering that 
last week we were basking in the 
60's. So . . . what's on everyone's 
mind this cold January afternoon? 
More or less in diis order: the 
Iraqi war, the Super Bowl, who's 
going to invite me to the 
Valentine's Banquet, Saddam 
Hussein, how will I ever make it 
through these second-semester 
classes, the Scud missiles, who 
will I take to the Valentine's 
Banquet, will they initiate the 
draft, how come the 49ers lost to 
the Giants, the WAR. 

In the meantime, people are 
scurrying around in their bulky 
sweaters and puffy jackets but 
always with those ubiquitous back 
bags attached to their bodies. 
Sometimes this campus resembles 
and army of mountain hikers with 
their back packs all in place! I 
checked one of those bags left 
behind in Hackman once and 
found all sorts of non-educational 
items therein: cans of pop, 

envelopes of snap shots, a jig- 
saw puzzle, and, strangest of all, 
a httle hammer with a red handle! 
It's too cold out here to 
interview people so let's go inside 
some buildings and see what's 
going on. In Room 120 of 
Hackman Hall, the Principles of 
Biology Lab students are studying 
the phases of mitosis and meiosis 
with the help of Stephanie Servoss 
and Danny Nyirady. Down the 
hall, Room 116. General 
Microbiology (not to be confijsed 

with Basic), is just getting ready 
to leam the intricacies of "acid- 
fast staining" under the tutelage 
of Sherie Burke and Monty 
Murdoch. Eager beavers Sean 
Pitman and Rob Taylor (dressed 
for the occasion in an oversized 
flannel jump-suit) were reviewing 

Outside the Student Center, 
Devin Read (from Miami — 
sporting a huge rose-colored 
sweater) and Lee Carbony (from 
Nashville — keeping warm in a 
black, blue, and white sweater) 



something to eat. inside Bruce 
Donehoo from Huntsville and 
Chris Stokes from Collegedale 
were struggling over Calculus 
(factoring out h's and q's). The 
other day Chris was involved in a 
heated discussion as to how much 
money it would take for him to 
eat a live cockroach — he setded 
on $10,000. TTie center is 
presided over by smiling 
gracious Gracienne Jean _ 
Pierre from Oriando (she 
admitted that this was "reially 
cold weather"). In the parlor. 
Olan Mills, with their 
iridescent umbrellas and all 
were taking pictures of senior 
nursing majors (they must be 
in uniform, thank you). The 
rest of the people were 
watching CNN's continuous 
analyses of the war in the 
Gulf. K.R. Davis was 
pounding and prying around 
the fireplace (on the 
"bleacher" side) to discover 
if the wall would be a good 
spot to mount the 32-inch TV 
which the SA recently 

purchased. TTie wail seems to be 
substantial enough and die TV 
will be attached diereto as soon 
as possible but not in time for the 
Super Bowl — sorry. 

On die way to So-ju-Conian the 
effects of winter were obvious: 
the build-up of ice formations on 
the fountain created a crystalline 
marvel, the thin sheet of ice 
covering the fish pond seemed 
other-woridly. The three little 
holly trees close to SHCH were 
laded with bright red berries. I'm 
surprised that the flocks of Cedar 
Waxwings haven't discovered 
diem yet. 

Coming up the promenade was 
a fetching trio: Karen Thompson 
from New York, Tamara Durrene 
from Cincinnati, and Venice 
Williams from Jamaica. With 
their breaded, plaited and coiffed 
hair and wearing royal blue and 
snow white coats and jackets 
(they all matched — must have 

consulted each other diis morning 
as to what to wear), they we 
eye-catching sight. 

Inside SJCH, smiling energetic 
theology department secreti 
Mrs. Brigetle Dimemmo told 
that the only thing going on at 
moment was that three religion 
classes were being taught 
simultaneously by Drs. GuUey, 
Blanco, and Morris (in separate 
rooms, of course) and that diey 
would all end at 3: 15 p.m. Kevin 
Crandell dashed by in his brown 
velvet cowboy hat. denim jacket 
and fancy boots. He told me he 
was enrolled in 13 hours of 
religion this semester — it's what 
you call "catching up." I would 
think so! 

Well, it's time to head for 
K.R.'s Place to have some hot 
chocolate and end this sojourn 
Along the Promenade.

after learning speculation about his 
alleged questionable conduct two 
weeks ago would lead lo a "com-

The SA Constitution provides for 
filling the office of president should 
it become vacant, given less than 
75 percent of the school year has 
gone by. However, the admini- 
stration of Southern College and 
Ihe SA sponsors have agreed to

new facility would be easier, for it would be 
planned to meet the college's current needs, and 
for the same money. 

The estimated cost of the proposed complex is 
$3-4 million, and preliminary steps have already 
been taken to raise money for it. However, "we 
should not look for a ground breaking ceremony 
this summer. This is a long-term thing," said 

Blueprints of the building have already been

According to White's statement, 
a petition has been circulating to 
impeach him. White insists on his 
innocence. "While I could have 
explained the situation to the stu- 
dent body, I chose to act within ihe 
best interests of the students and 
submit my resignation. I chose 
not to put this school through any 
turmoil even if it led to my vindi- 
cation," he said. Because White 
resigned, the incident will not go 
on his record, said SC President 
Don Sahly. 

"I applaud Woody for his integ- 
rity in facing this issue in this 
manner, and for his attitude toward 
his colleagues and the college

.../« the World 

■ Kiev, USSR— After 15 years of diplomatic wran- 
gling, the United Slates is opening a consulate this 
monlh in the Ukrainian capital, drawing cheers from 
independence activists who are courting Western sup- 
port. US officials say the consulate's opening does not 
mean diplomatic recognition or support for an inde- 
pendent Ukraine. They also noted that if the Soviet 
Union had not invaded Afghanistan in 1979, the build- 
ing might have opened a decade ago. Behind the dipi- 
lomatic tiptoeing, however, is a clear US recognition 
that the Ukraine is an industrial and agricultural power- 
house of 52 million people whose future is important to 
the West. If it breaks away from the Soviet Union, it 
will be Europe's largest country in territory and fifth- 
largest in population. 

■ Baghdad, IRAQ — Saddam Hussein has been prepar- 
ing a long time for a long war. His hideout gives this 
fact away. It was built a decade ago by the Germans, 
and lies more than 50 feet beneath his Baghdad palace. 
It boasts such luxuries as a sauna and four-poster bed, 
and it is built to withstand atomic blasts. Interior de- 
signers furnished the family headquarters with crystal 
chandeliers and pluch carpets. In a situation room, 
Saddam can follow the war's progress on 24 TV screens 
and address his people from an adjacent broadcast stu- 

■ SAUDI ARABIA— The possibility of an Ameri- 
can female POW in Iraq is very real. Army officials 
delivered the unfathomable news that one of two sol- 
diers reported missing from a truck abandoned in the 
desert near Kuwait was Melissa A. Rathbun-Nealy, 20, 
of Newaygo, Michigan. Senior military officials be- 
lieve she and a colleague were captured by Iraqi soldiers 
after the pair's vehicle got stuck in the sand during a 
supply mission. Official ^ reason that the two were 
taken captive because the truck's cargo was missing.

■ WASHINGTON— Earthquakes killed nearly as many 
people lasl year as in the entire decade of the I980's. re- 
ported the U.S. Geological Survey. More than 52,000 
causalities were reported in earthquakes around the world 
m 1990. None were in the United Stales. By compari- 
son, quakes claimed 57,500 lives during the whole dec- 
ade of the 80s. Boosting the 1990 total was a tremor in 
western Iran in June that killed about 50,000 people. 

■ Tallahassee, FL— A state task force will investigate 
"an alarming pattern" of church fires across Florida in 
search of a common thread. The Church-Arson Task 
Force will coordinate invesdgations of at least a dozen 
church fires since last July. The most recent fire targeted 
by the investigadon is a blaze that destroyed the All 
Saints Deliverance Church in Sanford. The cause of the 
blaze is undelennined, but officials suspect it was sel. In 
one week, nine suspicious fires erupted, six were in 
Winter Haven.

the CBS Evening News to be given a co-anchor, either

Student Association Initiates 
Fund For Needy Students 

CONCERN FOR the needy 

f students on Southern College 
campus was the center of discus- 
at the Jan. 30 Senate meet- 
ing. This concern was brought to 
attention by Senator Angela Dyer, 
whose precinct constituents in- 
formed her of the students' de- 
sire to help those in need. 

Former SA President Woody 
White designed a program in 
I response to Senator Dyer's pro- 
posal. The Worthy Student Pro- 
gram will help less fortunate 
students by providing necessary 
ns such as clothing and hygi- 
; supplies. The Senate voted 
unanimously to implement the 

According to Alex Bryan, SA 
'ice-president, White's resigna- 
ion will not affect the implem-

President's Fund, which was 
accrued through fund raising 
ventures, will be used to support 
the program for the remainder of 
this school year. In future years, 
the fund will be incorporated into 
the president's budget, to be 
controlled by him or her. 

A Worthy Student Committee 
of six members, five SA officers 
and one SA sponsor, will be given 
the responsibility of determining 
the merit of worthiness in each 
case, and also to purchase needed 

The particulars of the cases will 
not be discussed between com- 
mittee members and SA officers. 
Senate members will only know 
the dollar figures presented in the 
monthly financial statements. 
The main goal of the program is 
absolute privacy and confidenti- 
ality regarding the needy students. 

Only committee members will 
know who is helped and what is 
purchased for them. 

"The SA needs to have a pro- 
gram of this sort because it is an 
organization of the student body, 
for the student body," said Sena- 
tor Dyer. "We, as senators, rep- 
resent what the students here at 
Southern College need, and the 
students have expressed they want 
to help those in need."

icy book concerning SA Budget-

experienced bv Song Back and

including the "Flinstone's" 
theme song and "Chattanooga

The food was also excellent, as 
Julie Bietz can attest to (right). 
The night was topped off bv the 
movie, "The Philadelphia 


style exterior (with columns in 
front and gables in the roof). 
When finished, it will be roughly 
die size of Brock Hall, and will 
hold all five science departments. 
If approved, it will be built into 
the slope between Talge Hall and 
the music building, facing the 
Village Market. A name for the 
building has not yet been decided. 
There is concern in Hackman 
Hall over the Georgian look of 
the complex. Stephen Nyirady, 
biology department chair, feels 
the exterior is backward reflect- 
ing instead of forward looking. 
"We want the building to denoie 
scientific progress rather ihan 
historical continuity." However, 
he said the department is excited 
about the possibilities of getting 
a new building. 

Greenleaf said questions about 
the appearance of any building 
are to be expected, but plans for 
the new building aren't definite 
yet. "If the majority of people 
feel the apprearance of the com- 
plex does not fit in, then it will 
probably be changed," he said. 
He added that if the majority feels 
it looks acceptable, then plans will 
not change. 

Hackman Hall represent the 
biggest problem between the two 
buildings. Ii is becoming over- 
crowded and does not contain 
enough lab space— especially for 
chemistry. Because of diis, teach- 
ers are required to clear away their 
lab material while the next class 
moves in. There is also bad 
handicap access in the building. 
However, the cost of expanding 
Hackman would be tremendous, 
because the building is old and 
has been added onto before. But 

most importantly, the ceilings are 
insulated by asbestos, a fire -proof 
silica compound. Asbestos fi- 
bers are needle-like and so fine 
diat they can be ingested or in- 
haled into the lungs, which can 
lead to cancer. Hackman was 
built before the dangers of asbes- 
tos became known, and all build- 
ings constructed today cannot by 

out bathrooms on the first floor. 
It also has bad wiring and plumb- 
ing. However, the building itself 
is structurally sound, said Green- 

Daniells was originally built as 
a library in the mid 1940s, and 
consequently some rooms, such 
as what is now the physics lab, 
were built with low ceilings. But 
as new building

Top, Hackman Hall, Bottom, Dani 

law contain the substance. Three 
years ago an expensive sealant 
was spread over the ceiling, 
making the asbestos safe. How- 
ever, remodelmg Hackman would 
mean removing every tiny fiber, 
which would incur a very exorbi- 
tant cost on the school, said 

There is no crowding problem 
in Daniells Hall, but several di- 
lemmas do exist nevertheless. 
Like Hackman, Daniells also has 
bad handicap access and is with- 


Greenleaf said 
he doesn't know 
what will happen 
to Daniells and 
Hackman if the 

is buih. If not 
torn down, they 
will be used for 

level of work," he said. 

Although floor space assign- 
ments for each department have 
not yet been allocated in the new 
building, a greenhouse, animal 
house, and more lab space is in 
the plans now. 

The greenhouse has always 
been a regular feature of Hack- 
man Hall, but the animal house is 
something new. According to Bill 
Hayes, biology professor, it will 
consist of three rooms. Two will 
be used for storing animals for 
student and faculty research, and 

the third for cleaning of the ani- 
mals and food storage. 

Hayes said there must be three 
separate rooms to insure proper 
sanitation. "There are strict fed- 
eral requirements as to animal 
care," he said. 

As for extra lab space, Green- 
leaf said that while the college 
cannot afford a lab for each class, 
there will be more labs built than I

According to Jack McClarly, 
vice president for development. ' 
the campaign to raise money for | 
the complex will not slow down 
work on the Endowment Fund, 
which remains Southern's "pri- 
mary focus," he said. 

Art Richert, a Daniells Hall 
math professor, is excited about 
the new building. "The facilities 
here are not the best," he said. 

However, math department 
Chairman Larry Hanson said he's 
happy where he is. "They've 
done a lot of renovation in 
Daniells, especially with the 
heating and cooling. The math 
department would like to stay in 
the building. It's solid," he said. 

Chemistry professor Steven 
Warren, who teaches in Hack- 
man, is happy about plans for a 
new building. "In order to make 
Hackman useable for the next 15 | 
to 20 years, it will need extensive 
repairs," he said. Warren said he 
would like to see several chemis- 
try labs, a research iab for each 
teacher, and a large area for stor- 
age of chemicals in the new build- 
ing. "That would be ideal," he

|SC Faculty Does Homework 

A GROWING trend on South- 
.m"s campus is the publication 
of faculty materials. It seems that 
faculty, from all departments 
across campus, are seeing their 
works in print. 

According to Academic Dean 
Floyd Greenleaf. faculty mem- 
bers are currently being published 
more than they have in the past 
15 years. Greenleaf said that in 
the past six years, i 10 honorari- 
{monelary bonuses) have ben 
rded to SC's faculty totalling 
$5,725. This does not include 
any books they publish. 

I like it when teachers pub- 
It does great things for 
Southern's image," said President 

Donald Sahly. Because Sahly 
regards Southern as a teaching 
institution and not a research 
instilulion, he states he does not 
expect faculty to be published. 

Greenleaf stresses that South- 
em does not have a "publish or 
perish" policy. He feels South- 
ern encourages publishing only 
if the faculty's teaching schedule 
permits it. 

The list for honorariums forthis 
year is already a sizeable one, 
according to Greenleaf. 

Sahly said he would like to see 
more teachers get involved in this 
trend. "The more the better," he 
said "We [ike it."

Accounting Department 
Updates With IFAS VI 


Wright Hall might seem the same 

on the outside, but inside things 

are changing. 

Employees in the office decided 

to purchase a new accounting 

I system to replace the old program. 

T The system is an IFAS VI, which 

I stands for Interactive Fund Ac- 

:ounting System. It is the newest 

'ersion from Bi-Tech Co. in 

I California. 

Louesa Peters, assistant treas- 
urer for Southern College, said. 
We were not unhappy with what 
we had, we are just updating the 

The computer department has 
developed the programs in the 
past, but with the availability of 
current software, it was decided 
to purchase a program from an 
outside firm. 

"With the rapid change in tech- 
nology, the computer department 
encouraged us to purchase up- 
dated software that is developed 
oy a company who can keep us 
t^iirrent." Peters added 

Choosing a new program was 
not easy for accounting. The 
department worked with several 
companies, trying to decide which 
would be best. Included in the 
planning was a trip to Oriando. 
Fla., to attend a group meeting 
with other business software 

"Once there, we got acquainted 
with the procedures. The people 
were also very easy to work with, 
which made it easier for us to 
decide," said Peters. 

The department had its first 
orientation of the IFAS in Janu- 
ary. Four more training sessions 
are scheduled between March and 
November. On June 1, all data 
will go live on the new system 
except payroll. 

So far, there is no evidence to 
show the system will same the 
accounting department time. 
However, with changing technol- 
ogy and the availability of soft- 
ware, it will bring the college up 
to date.

showcase of successful people 
from a wide range of occupations 
including economics, aviation, 
real estate, long-term health care, 
education, management, human

Southern Physics Pair 
Present Papers in Texas 

ROBERT MARSA, a senior 
math and physics major at SC, 
recently presented a research 
paper at a physics convention in 
San Antonio. TX. 

Marsa and Dr. Ray Hefferlin, 
lairman of the physics depart- 
-..ent, presented papers on Jan. 
21 at the joint meeting of the 
American Association of Physics 
Teachers and the American Physi- 
cal Society. 

Marsa presented a paper en- 
titled, "Bound Pair Effects Ob- 
served in Triatomic Molecules," 
a result of his involvement in the 
physics department's research 
project, the construction of a 
periodical chart for molecules. 
He said he has been involved in 
the research project since his 
freshmen year here at Southern. 
Marsa also presented a paper this 
past summer at Ohio University 
He said Dr. Hefferlin plans to 
iubmit his articles to be published 

in several scientific journals. 

Marsa plans to earn a doctorate 
in gravitational field theory and 
general relativity after he gradu- 
ates from Southern. He said he 
will most likely teach at a univer- 
sity physics department, since his 
field is very specialized. 

Dr. Hefferlin presented two 
papers at the January meeting, 
the first on the research project 
here at SC, and the second on 
new teaching techniques for 
physics. He said approximately 
700 physicists attended the meet- 
ing. The American association 
of Physics Teachers meets twice 
a year, while the American Physi- 
cal Society meets five times a 

Dr. Hefferiin said three other 
physicists are actively involved 
in group theory in the U.S., 
U.S.S.R., and France. Group 
theory is mathematical research 
into patterns of groups.

Letters to the Editors 

Think Before You Act 

Dear Editors: 

I'd like to lliank Alice McGiii for her chapel 
presentation. She is a skillful actress. 
However, she might do well to study history 
more thoroughly before she attempts a bio- 
graphical sketch of a famous Adventist at a 
Seventh-day Adventist college. 

Sojourner Truth attended two Millerite camp 
meetings in 1843, and from that time on 
identified herself with Adventists. Living in 
Battle Creek, she enjoyed the friendship of 
John Byington (the first General Conference 
president) and J.H. Kellogg, as well as olher 
prominent SDAs. 

Unfortunately, there is no official record of 
her membership in our church, because all 
such records were destroyed when the Battle 
Creek Tabernacle burned. But several people 
confirmed that she did in fact become a 
Seventh-day Adventist. Among them was 
James Lewis, who declared: Sojourner Truth 
was baptized by Uriah Smith in the Kalama- 
zoo River ai the end of Cass Street in Battle 
Creek. Another who confirmed the fact that 
she joined the Adventist Church was Wil- 
liam Price, a nurse at Battle Creek Sanitar- 
ium who knew her personally. 

The Chicago daily. Inler-Ocean. reported 
Truth's funeral, sayin", "Advent Tabernacle 
which holds 3.000. will undoubtedly be 
filled." Advcniisl magazines, which don't 
ordmardy report the death of non-members, 
not even U.S. Presidents, ran obituaries. 

We can be proud of an Adventist heritage 
that mcludes people like Sojourner Truth 
even if Alice McGill is ignorant of it.

Tomorrow," by Louis B. Reynolds, Review 
and Herald. 1984.— Donald R. Short 

Where's My Breakfast? 

Dear Editors: 

A very disturbing thing happened the odier 
day. I went down to the CK to have some 
breakfast, but, what was this? Breakfast was

we have a student who needs a ride to work!"

over. My watch said 10:25 a.m., however, 
the clock on the wall read 10:30, so lunch 
was being served. I don't gel it. In my 
opinion, the slopping of the breakfast menu 
at 10:30 has to be one of the worst business 
decisions that has been made down there. I 
know numerous people who would like to 
see breakfast run all day, but if it can't be run 
all day, then have some type of a grace pe- 
riod. Forexample.ifyouareinlineby 10:30 
then you get breakfast, or have a phase-out 
period between 10:30 to 1 1. When the per- 
son in front of you makes breakfast and you 
don't, it's fiTistrating. I believe the CK would 
make a better profit by running breakfast all 
day. — ^Herb Klischies 

The 8 o'clock Syndrome 

Dear Editors: 

It has come to my attenrion there is a rather 
rediculous situation which occurs nightly in 
both dorms. Every evening at eight there 
comes a sudden rush of the male gender out 
of the woman's residence, and a few woman 
from the men's dorm also. This strage phe- 
nomenon is due, I believe, to the rule that no 
members of the opposite sex are allowed in 
the dormitory lobbies after eight on any school 
nighi. Now that rule in itself would not seem 
so odd, were it not for the fact that there is no 
law about hanging around OUTSIDE the 
dorm after hours. Each winter evening one 
may encounter a mass of men freezina in 
front of the dorm waiting for their dear date 
to "be right out." It seems that there is no 
sense m the fact it is OK for them to be in our 
lobby at any other time, but suddenly ai eight 
it becomes wrong. It is not as if the women 
of Thatcher Hall run through the lobby inde- 
cently exposed when the clock strikes that 
fateful hour! 

In my attempts to acertain the reason for 
this rule, the only plausible suggestion I 
received was that it was harder to keep an eye 
on die men that late to make sure they weren't 
sneaking down the hall. I'm not sure what 
causes the belief that at eight men suddenly 
become sneaky, but I do wish to point out 
that the men have THREE unlocked doors to 

their residence every day, a convenience 
which Thatcher residents do not enjoy. How 
terribly hard can it be for a desk worker to 
watch the two doors beside her desk? I, as a 
desk worker myself, cannot foresee how ii 
could possibly be that difficult. 

Another point of interest is that this eight 
o'clock rule only applies Monday through 
Thursday. It seems odd that it is OK on the 
weekends to stay in the lobby until later, yet 
not on weekdays. If this rule is to induce 
studying on week nights, may I point out that 
the students who wish to be in Thatcher have 
not gone to study; rather, they have only 
gone out to freeze! 

In light of all this, I propose the "time of the 
boot" be postponed until 10:45 p.m., which is 
the time of late worships, and about when the 
RA,'s are getting anxious. This is an entirely ' 
serious proposal, and I do hope that the fac- 
ulty of this campus give it the serious atten- 
tion it deserves before we wake up some 
morning to find half of our men frozen on 
Thatcher porch from the Eight O'Clock 
—Shelly Wise 

Cut the Curfew 

Dear Editors: 

Upon arrival at SC, one might think there 
are not that many rules compared lo some of 
the stricter academies. This is true. Nighi 
check is not until 1 1 p.m. and the deans are 
lenient on wciikcnd leaver. Having lo be in 
by 1 1 every night keeps most out of trouble 
and aids in academics. This is especially true 
for new students. When students first reach 
college they may not be mature enough to 
handle the responsibility of a later curfew. 

With this in mind, I think the curfew should 
be later. The first year the curfew should 
remain the same but after that smdents who 
are willing to come back should not have to ■ 
be cooped up in the dorm so early. By the I 
time students reach their junior year they 
should be serious enough about their educa- 
tion to come in at a decent hour anyway.

Think Hard, Know Who You Want, and 
Stand By Your Decision 

By Erich Stevens, i 

Election rime is upon u 
again. It seems like only 
yesterday we were voting for 
ihis year's Student Association 
officers. For some of us, 
voting for our SA leaders was 
exciting, but for others dull. 
Perhaps some voted just be- 
cause their friends were doing 
it. Tragically, about half of us 
didn't vote at all. 

The purpose of this article is 
to present some thoughts which 
may help you during the voting 
process, and perhaps even get 
you excited about it. Most 
importantly, I hope it will 
encourage more than half of 
you to vote. 

Firstly, we must look at 
participation in the SA elec- 
tions as a responsibility. It is 
everyone's duty to vote, and 
not just because you enrolled 
here. It's more than that. It's 
because the Student Association 

significantiy impacts the life of 
each student here through the 
activities it plans, the yearbook 
and newspaper it puts out, and 
the quality of the Joker, to 
name a few. You want to be 
able to go to the best SA 
parties, look forward to the 
yearbook and paper, and see 
ih.c Joker come out esprecially 
early. Then there is the SA 
president, who holds all these 
departments together, and the 
vice-president, the leader of our 
student government. 

Yes, the SA functions do 
affect every one in a certain 
way. It even affects those who 
don't come to the activities or 
read the paper, but in a nega- 
tive way, unfortunately. 
Therefore, it is your obligation 
and your privilege to vote and 
make the impact on your life at 
SC as positive as it can be. 

Second, there are always 
good choices at an excellent 
school like ours, in the past I 
have heard people say other- 
wise, but I disagree. South- 
em's quality academic pro- 
grams spawn numerous ambi- 
tious students each year who 
are dedicated to their respective 
task. Inevitably, some of them 
run for an SA office. We have 
a good crop of this kind of 
student among the candidates 
this year. It is doubtful that 
any of tiiem, if elected, would 
disappoint. True, it is hard to 
please everyone, but each 
candidate this year has an 
exceptional ability to give it a 

Fmally, with that in mind, let 
your choice be an independent 
one. That is, don't vote for 
someone just because everyone 
else is. Take the time to really 
evaluate the speeches made in 

Listen Up, Class! 


Which World 

When President Bush ad- 
dressed the nation Jan. 16 
concerning the commencement 
of Operation Desert Storm, he 
spoke of a soon coming "new 
world order." The aggression 
of Iraq's Saddam Hussein, he 
pointed out, poses a grave 
threat to this ftagile new order. 
After five months of diplo- 
macy, only military action, 
immediate and decisive, could 
now preserve the new order of 
a community of nations no 
taiger polarized by the Cold 
War and cooperating for the 
maintenance of world peace 

President Bush declared a 
"Ew world order and called for 
action in support of that order. 

As followers of Jesus seeking 
o keep our bearings during a 
lime of worldwide upheaval 
*e may do well to recall that 
fc central theme of our Lord's 
ministry was also the arrival of 
a new world order. He began 
te ministry by announcinl. 

ITie time has come; the kine- 
domofOodisuponyou- ^ 

proclaiming the prei^,"?„S„. 

ment of the prophet Isaiah's 
vision of an era of divine favor 
to the poor, the imprisoned, and 
the oppressed {Luke 4:14-21). 

When Paul took the good 
news about Jesus to the nations, 
he was accused of turning the 
world upside down (Acts 17:6). 
He himself declared, "When 
anyone is united to Christ, there 
is a new world; the old order 
has gone, and a new order has 
already begun" (2 cor. 5:17, 

The heart of the Gospel is the 
coming of a new world order, 
the kingdom of God. Though 
that kingdom, contrary to the 
hopes of the pious, did not 
immediately crush the king- 
doms of this world, it did break 
into human history through 

So what? "Repent" is Jesus' 
first word. Repent (metanoia) 
means more than feeling sorry 
for our sins. It means "to 
change the form, to turn the 
mind around." The arrival of 
this new world order calls for a 
reorientation of the life, a 
centering on the values and 
agenda of the kingdom. 

As that kingdom unfolded in 

the life of Jesus, it became 
apparent that its way of win- 
ning the world would not be 
through the force of aims or 
even a dazzling display of 
miraculous might, but through 
the suffering love that leads to 
the cross. And repeatedly the 
New Testament tells us that it 
is in His acceptance of the 
cross that Jesus is most pre- 
cisely our example (Mark 8:34- 
38; 10:42-25; Luke 14:27-33; 
2Cor. 4:10;Phil.2:3-14; IPeter 

But what does this have to do 
with the present world crisis? 
Surely the kingdom of God and 
the way of the cross are matters 
of the heart and spirit, not 
politics. And yet there's no 
escaping the fact that in a real 
sense Jesus' cross was political. 
That form of punishment was 
reserved for rebels against the 
Roman state. In contrast to 
revolutionary violence on the 
one hand and innocuous acqui- 
escence to the status quo on the 
other, Jesus chose the nonvio- 
lent love which leads to the 
cross as his way of meeting and 
overcoming the evil entrenched 
in this world's power systems, 

TTie world order President 
Bush spoke of is not something 

Thursday's assembly, and 
examine each platform on 
pages 10 and 11 of Uiis issue. 
You might go so far as to call a 
certain candidate and ask them 
what they're really about. It 
shouldn't take long, and they 
would be happy to talk to you. 
In other words, think hard 
before you vote, know who you 
want, and stand by your deci- 

To conclude, a message to the 
seniors: this goes for you, too. 
Even though you're leaving in 
May, take the same critical 
steps in voting mentioned 
above. Remember the friends 
you're leaving behind. Make 
the choice that will benefit 
them in the upcoming year, and 
step into the "real worid" 
knowing you have served well 
your fellow students and your 
school by simply voting smart. 

that c 


tangible or perfect way. But he 
called the community of na- 
tions to act according to his 
vision of that order. 

It is die same way with the 
kingdom announced by Jesus. 
Though not yet fully, visibly 
manifest, and unidentifiable 
with any human institution, it 
calls into being a community 
whose agenda for life in this 
world is shaped by the cross, a 

fellowship of the repentant (i.e. 

What then of the relationship 
between President Bush's new 
worid order and the kingdom of 
God revealed through Jesus? 
There is much congruence 
between die two. In fact, we 
may see in the background of 
the President's vision of a just 
and peaceful order the inspira- 
tion of the biblical vision of the 
kingdom of God. 

Like American democracy 
itself, this new world order 
partakes so greatly of biblical 
values that the Christian may 
well find it worth dying for. 

Killing for it is another 
matter, for that is exactly the 
option the Captain of our 
salvation refused to take. As 
children of His kingdom, 
adherents of His new worid 
order, we must follow the path 
He has blazed. In our own 
struggle against evil, we march 
under the banner of the Cross, 
not the Bomb. 

Naive? Foolish? Not much 
of a defense against Saddam's 
SCUDs? "Believe" is Jesus' 
second word. Faith is required. 
But we also have hindsight. 
Jesus was crucified by the 
agents of the most powerful, 
and in many ways most hu- 
mane and just world order 
known to that time, the Pax 
Romana. An impressive legacy 
of that order remains, but that's 
all. The Risen Christ lives and 
reigns. The future is his. 

"Worthy is the Lamb, the 
Lamb that was slain, to receive 
all power and wealth, wisdom 
and might, honour and glory 
and praise!" (Rev. 5:12, NEB).

Quentin Sahly 

Tliis year 1 wanted to be closer 
and more involved with the college 
so I moved into the dormitory. I 
also ran for and got elected lo the 
SA Senate. In the Senate I served as 
chair of the Elections Committee. 
1 feel the Senate has made many 
improvements this year to become a 
better tool to the students. The 
Senate project this year is divided 
into two items: a new and much 
needed laser printer for the year- 
book and paper. Secondly, a TV for 
the Student Center where CNN will 
be shown. With the TV, the Senate 
hopes to benefit village as well as 
dormitory students. 

It is the Executive Vice-President's 
job to chair the Senate and I feel 1 
have the capabilities to do the job 
well. Ihave the experience ofbeing 
a senator this year, and I also know 
the college and administration well. 
which will be beneficial. 

I strongly feel, if elected, that I 
can work wiih the other candidates 
and help make a more united Stu- 
dent Associaiion. 

that makes you a part of the SA 
team. This team is made up of the 
faculty, students, and the SA offi- 

If elected to be yourSA Executive 
Vice-President for next year, I will 
work lo enhance and encourage this 
team. As president of the Senate I 
will be the middle-man lo which 
everyone, and anyone, can come to 
talk. Every single person on the 
team counts, and I will work lo have 
every single person involved. 

I have had four years of Student 
Association experience from acad- 
emy through college, holding vari- 
ous offices. The most prominent 
was being president at Mount Ver- 
non Academy. I have also served as 
your public relations director here 
this year. This service has given me 
the experience and insight to get 
things done: an SA of action, not 
Just words! I've learned that hard 
work and teamwork go hand in hand. 
It is the only way! 

Our main goal in Senate next year 
is lo concentrate on coordinating and 
developing all asp)ecls of our cam- 
pus into a winning team. From 
yearbook, newspaper, and S.A. of- 
fices, to C.A.R.E. ministries. Beta 
Kappa Tau, and other clubs and 
departments, unitv is the key. 
Together we can not only make 
Southern a better college, but a better 
Christian college. 

Other goals will be to add in- 
creased duties and responsibilities 
to the executive vice-president of- 
fice, further involve senators in SA 
coordination, improve SA functions, 
enhance campus safety, and invoke 
a positive outlook for the SA. 

I will give you the kind of experi- 
enced leadership this requires - the 
kind of experienced leadership that 
you, the student body, deserve! It is 
ajob of immense responsibility, but 
a job that with God's help can make 
the school year of 1991-1992 the 
best ever. 

Social Vice- 

tivities. I. Kris Clark, want to be 
the next Social V.P. 

1 have actively participated in the 
planning of special programs and 
activities for several years. Since 
Christmas, I have worked with 
Angela Morton and her staff. While 
working behind the scenes at S.A. 
functions, I have made contacts and 
collected ideas. This will be bene- 
ficial lo the organization of social 
events next school year. 

I am very excited about die future 
of Southern's social activities. 
Making a fun-filled atmosphere for 
all students, not only on weekends, 
but throughout the school week is 
my personal goal. There are so many 
great ideas to be explored and it is 
my hope to combine my skills and 
ideas with those of others and to- 
gether we can really PARTY. Some 
of these ideas include: more mid- 
week spirit days, a spectacu lar 
Disney party, and a Christmas pany 
for less fortunate children where S.C. 
students could adopt a child for an 
evening and enjoy the entertainment 
while spreading Christmas cheer. 

In closing, I must say that I be- 
lieve in quality entertainment. I 
believe in Christian education, I 
believe that the officers of the Stu- 
dent Associaiion are elecled to serve 
you, the student body, and it is my 
hope lo be the next Social V.P. — 
You Can't Miss With Kris!

Southern College's 1991-92 
school year has a lot to offer you 
and as a candidate for the office of 
Social Vice President. I wish to 
express my sincere enthusiasm about 
the future Student Association ac- 

Forming friendships is one of the 
best aspects of college life. Girls, 
have you ever seen Mr. Right walk- 
ing down the Promenade and you 
were just dying to know his name? 
And guys, have you ever seen that 
chick in the cafe and you couldn't 
stop drooling in your creamed beets? 
You wanted to know, no, you needed 
to know, no. you had to know her 
name, her major, and most impor- 
tantly, her social status! What can 
help you do this? A prompt, accu- 
rate, and informativg Joker can 
certainly make it easier. 

As Joker editor, I would like lo 
serve you, the students, by produc- 
ing a high-quality, well-organized 
student directory, I know that ev- 
eryone is eager to start using this 
publication at the beginning of the 
year. This is why one of my major 
goals is to work as efficiently as 
possible for an early release. Be- 
cause I am a village student, I will 
have the opportunity lo work on this 
publication during the summer, 
which will give me an early start. 

As SA Executive Secretary and 
editor of Chatter . 1 have gained 
valuable experience this year. While 
in academy, I worked on various 
aspects of producing student dia'c- 
tories and school papers. Over three 
years, this experience included lay- 
out and design, photography, and 
writing. My computer experience 
will also help provide you with a 
worthwhile publication. 
If you vote Janene Burdick as your 

slide show, it is j nummary ol even

experience working with Strawberry

night with two games, the Freshman 
vs. Seniors and the Sophomores vs. 
Jimiors, respectively. The touma- 
raent ends on Saturday night with the 
consolation game and the champion- 
ship game. In that order. Each nights 
games begin at seven o'clock. 
Theoriginofthe Rees Series is 1971, 
when they originally had the village 
students play the men from Talge 
Hall. During the six year history of 
this format, the dorm team won three 
games and the village team won three 

In 1977, they changed the formatto 
what it is currently. The Juniors are 
the reigning champions but the sen- 
iors are favored this year. The fol-

Hayes' Strong Finish Ttarns Back Thompson

Thompson's team relies on the inside game 
while Hayes puts their faith in the outside

Hayes had the halftime lead 35-33, thanks to

bounced back and forth, and with 10 minutes 
left, the score was tied 33-33. Collins was 
leading Downs' team with nine second-half

His arrival on Jan. 15 from

Vladimir's first impression of

the itinerary following his arrival

aired daily. 

WSMC also immediately be-

Celebrates First 


with Southern 

By Lani Kre 

"A FREE press can be your 
best friend because it tells you 
what's going on in the worid," 
said Frank Ritter, reader advo- 
cate of The Tennessean, who 
spoke on the bicentennial of 
the Bill of Rights at the Jan. 3 1 
student assembly. 

Ritter visited Southern as edi- 
tor-in residence for the Jour- 
nalism department Jan. 30 and 
31. While here, he not only 
spoke for assembly, but also 
gave two presentations dealing 
with journalism as a career. 

Ritter said that the founding 
fathers created the First 
Amendment as a way to pro- 
vide a check on the govern- 
ment and to inform us as to 
what is going on. 

He pointed to may examples 
in history when citizens didn't 
know enough about what the 
government was actually 
doing, such as in the cases of 
President Johnson's Vietnam 
policy and President Nixon's 
Watergate scandal. 

When asked if he thought the 
media was over-reporting the 
war with Iraq, Ritter emphati- 
cally said, "No. We need to 
know what happens," he said. 
He went on to explain that since 
so many American and allied 
lives are on the hne. people 
need to know how things are 

Ritter told many interesting 
stories about his experiences 
as a reporter and read some 
amusing articles from newspa- 
pers that print just about any- 

Daryl Cole. Journalism Club 
president, felt that Ritter 
seemed to be a very ethical and 
well-rounded journalist and 
communicator. "He is a really 
rare form of journalist." said 

After spending many years 
with The Tennessean, working 
first as a reporter then working 
his way up to deputy manag- 
ing editor, Ritter created his 
job as reader advocate after 
realizing the newspaper needed 
someone who would listen to 
readers' complaints. 

Ritter is Tennessee's first and 
only reader advocated. There 
are 35 reader advocates in the

When shopping in Russia, goods are not 
packaged as delicalely as here, so you can 
try out merchandise before you buy it. Most 
goods are buih to last a lifetime. 

"You can run over Russian goods with a 
tank and they will still work," remarked 
Vladimir with a smile on his face. 

When asked about the present situation in 
Lithuania, he reluctantly made a few simple 

"Every human being has two sides; a good 
side and a bad side. So far we've only seen 
President Gorbachev's good side, maybe now 
we will see the other." 

He went on to say that it is a very sad 
situation in that country and that it is some- 
thing we all need to keep in our prayers. 

He noticed that in the time he has seen 
Seventh-day Adventists in America, there 
were few differences between Russian and 
American followers. In Russia, the majority 

The station made a tough decision regard- 
ing broadcasting news of the war on Sabbath, 
when it usually broadcasts the Collegedale 
Church service. WSMC had never aired news 
on Sabbath before, but they decided to make 
an exception in this case. "There wasn't a 
Seventh-day Adventist pulpit in the nation 
that wasn't talking about it." said Landrum. 
The first Saturday of "Desert Storm," WSMC 
aired a panel discussion about the war from 
Thatcher Hall. The following Friday eve- 
ning, one of Iraq's former hostages gave her 
testimony during the vespers program. The 
station aired her talk live from Collegedale 
Church. NPR news was also broadcast from 
WSMC on Sabbath. Landrum said the sta- 
tion will not continue broadcasting news of 
the war on Sabbath unless new developments

daily column but also his home number. 

"I m paid to find stories and write them," 
said Ritter. He's done just about everything 
to get a good story, from going to a palm

southern end of the Promenade. 
About the only itemii thai grab 
your attendon are the elementary 
school and. beyond it. all the 
organized confusion involved 
widi the construction of the 
church addition. Besides all die 
clutter of the cranes, trucks, gen- 
rators. etc.. at the site, there 
eems to be a great deal of dig- 
;ing with mounds of dirt and big 
ditches alt the way down to the 
gym. In fact, there's a lot of 

ings (hopefully in our lifetime!). 
Add to the above: the construc-

tified with new shrubbery plant- 

Whatever this school 
be called, 1990-91 wdl surely go 
down as the year of the BIG DIG. 
One small way this confusion is 
affecdng people is as follows: the 
Chattanooga Chapter of the Ten- 
nessee Ornithological Society 
meets out at SC once a year and 
Feb. 14 is the night — the officer 
are so concerned about the status 
of Industrial Dr. they're having 
everyone meet at Eckerd's at Four 
Comers and then guiding them 
all in caravan style. If you see a 
line of cars creeping along Camp 
Rd- about 6:45 tonight, it will 
probably consist of confused 
Chattanooga birdwatchers trying 
to find Hackman Hall! 

Well, let's visit some of the 

people in the lobby of the Center. 

This lobby is almost as large as 
the main lohbv in adjacent 
Thatcher Hall— it contains 2Z 
blue and pink striped sectionals 

plus several pink plush chairs and 
eight rather large Weeping Fig 
trees. By the way, this summer 
the men in Talge will be shunted 
over to the Conference Center 
while the men's dorm is being 
remodeled. Mrs. Helen Bledsoe, 
the Center's manager, told me the 
last big group to stay overnight 
was Forest Lake Academy stu- 
dents on their way home frxim a 
skiing trip in Colorado. She also 
stated that several parents had 
made reservations for this week- 
end. The two receptionists. 
Sharron Watson and Christa 
Raines, seemed very alert and 
pleasantly helpful. 

On the v/ay down here I met 
two noteworthy people: Richard 
Evins (in shirt sleeves and carT>'- 
ing a red book bag) who is a 
birdwatcher and is graduating this 

year. He told me all about the 
numerous Red-tailed Hawks he'' 
been seeing in Gainc^vilie. Ga. 
Angela Morton was running 
around in a pink sweater and bi ue 
jeans making final arrangements 
for the SA Valentine's Banquet

Board Says Yes to Science Complex Proposal, No to Design 

THE SOUTHERN College Board in a Feb. 
IS meeting unanimously approved a pro- 
posal to build a science complex on campus. 
The complex will house the biology, chem- 
istfy, computer, math, and physics depart- 
However, the initial design of the com- 
plex, that of a Georgian-style building re- 
sembling Lynn Wood Hall, was turned down 

By Erich Sieve, 

because it looked too historic, rather than 
denoting scientific progress. 

This is good news to the biology depan- 
ment. "It will be terrific if they can come up 
with a more modem look," said E.O. Grund- 
set, biology professor. 

A special committee of board and college 
faculty members was put together to reach a 
consensus on a new design for the building 

The committee met Monday with the architect 
to revise the plans. 

Stephen Nyirady, biology department chair, 
IS on the committee. He said a more modem 
style is being worked on now by the architect 
but that it will still have a Georgian accent

Myers Nabs VP Spot 

A SIGH of relief can be heard coming from 
the lips of a select group of Southern College 
students. Those who belong to this group have 
spent the last two months planning and imple- 
menting their campaigns. Many long hours 
were spent preparing posters, piatfonms, and 
speeches. Each candidate running for an of- 
fice in the 1991-92 S.A. elections gave it their 
all; but only a few obtained their goal. 

Rob Fulbright was voted as next year's S.A. 
President. Fulbright received 52% of the vote, 
just edging his opponent Alex Bryan. "I feel 
the results of the election indicate the students' 
desire for a fresh start in the Student Associa- 
tion, and I feel confident that I, along with the 
other newly elected officers will bring their 
desires in to play," commented Fulbright. 

"Rob is a good friend and a capable leader. 
He will do an excellent job with next year's 
S.A. and I wish him the best, keeping him in 
my prayers as he leads the students next year," 
staled Bryan. 

The students elected Amanda Myers to the 
office of Executive Vice-President. She cap- 
tured 57% of the vote. "1 want to make senate 
more active for students. I also want the 
senators to be more involved in S.A. func- 
tions," said Myers.

■ PERU— Already afflicted by economic ills and a fes 
tering guerrilla insurgency, Peru is now plagued by ar 
epidemic of cholera sweeping along its Pacific coast. Sc 
far, the disease has claimed 90 lives and infected at least 
14,000 people. It is the first major outbreak of cholera 
the western hemisphere since early in this century. The 
epidemic, which is spread by poor hygiene and contan ' 
nated water, raw food and fish, has brought authorities 
quickly to stem the epidemic. Streetside food vending 
Lima has been barmed, and a national media campaign is 
under way to encourage sanitary habits. Soccer matches 
in Lima between Peruvian teams and squads from Argi 
tina and Uruguay have been canceled. While the ex 
source of the outbreak remains unclear, tests of coas 
waters have shown a high degree of contamination, a 
other reports speculate that the cholera arrived on a ship 
from Southeast Asia.

takeoff, killing the five Army personnel aboard. The pilot 
of the UH-IH had reported mechanical trouble minutes 
before it went down in Lake Ilopango, at the edge of the 
capital. A US-Salvadoran search for the bodies was sus- 
pended and divers said they had located the spot where

H London, ENGLAND — Two royal wives surprised the 
public in Britain by hintiu'^, separately that they did not 
intend to have any more ci ildren. Princess Diana, who 
was visiting Glasgow's Ro;. al" Maternity Hospital, told a 
pregnant woman that she was probably "sticking at two." 
On the same day, the duchess of York, popularly known 
as Fergic, told the wife of a soldier in the Persian Gulf that 
she had the same intention. This coincidence was chron- 
icled in the Daily Telegraph, which reported that Princess 
Anne stopped having children long ago and that Prince 
Edward showed no signs of marrying.

■ Philadelphia, PA — A high-rise inferno was brought 
under control after killing three firefighters and gutting 
nine floors of a 38-story skyscraper across from City 
Halt. The 12-alarm blaze raged for almost 19 hours, 
when it reached a floor with sprinklers and firefighters 
were able to direct a stream of water into windows. 
Hours earlier, fire crews stopped fighting the blaze from 
inside the building after engineers warned that the charred 
and soot-covered high-rise could collapse. All or por- 
tions of the 22nd through the 30th floors were gutted. 
Firefighters let the building cool naturally before enter- 
ing. The building houses the Philadelphia regional head- 
quarters of Reading-based Meridian Bancorp Inc. and 
several other offices. The cause of the fire is under 
investigation. Officials said they know of no one in the 
building when the fire began. 

■ Rising Fawn, GA— Five people were rescued from a 
vertical cave on Fox Mountain. Rescuers said two of 
those taken from the cave were suffering from hypother- 
rnia, but none were seriously injured. Three men and 
three women, rappelled into the 1 50-foot pit, but only one 
man was able to climb out and call for help. Blankets and 
sleepmg bags were transported to the vicrims and they 
were raised with ropes and baskets. The problem may 
have occurred because of the lack of cUmbing experience 
of some members of the party, who had had their first on- 
rope training the day before the incident.

SC Students Celebrate Black Heritage 

THIS MONTH the United 
Stales has been celebrating 
black history. It has been a 
time to remember black lead- 
ers in our nation's heritage and 
for blacks to evaluate what 
the future holds for them. 
More importantly, it is a pe- 
riod where everyone, blacks 
and whites, can learn. 

According to Bata Kappa 
Tau President Tony Thedford, 
that is the objective reached 
for during SC's own celebra- 
tion. Black History Week was 
Feb. 3-9 on campus. 

"It was a time where we 
could exhibit our cultural his- 
tory and the impact blacks 
have had on American soci- 
ety." said Thedford. "It's a 
positive time for us, and 
brought us all together." 

Observing black history o

Study Shows 

Extent of AIDS 

on Campus 

Rcprinled frorrTfiOfES 

500 college studenis is infected 
with the deadly AIDS virus, cre- 
ating the potential for rapid spread 
of the sexually transmitted dis- 
ease on the nation's campuses, 
according to a study conducted 
by the federal Centers for Dis- 
ease Control and the American 
College Health Association. 

Dr. Helene D. Gayle and Dr. 
Richard P. Keeling conducted 
random blood testimg of 16, 863 
college students from 19 institu- 
tions. The researchers found 30 
students, representing nine cam- 
puses, infected with the AIDS 
virus. The resulting infection rate 
of two-tenths of one percent 
among college studenis is com- 
parable to the incidence of AIDS 
in the general population. But 
Keeling warns the disease could 
spread quickly unless college 
students protect themselves dur- 
ing sexual encounters. 

"The combination of a sexually 
transmitted disease tossed into 
campus behavior has the poten- 
tial for very serious conse- 
quences," sayd Kelling. "It also 
shows us we have an oppormnity 
to prevent that." 
The study also found that stu- 
- dents older than 24 are seven 
times more likely to be infected 
with the AIDS virus than younger 
students and that men are more 
likely to be infected than women.

"It will not be truly effective

Gym Masters Trip =. .«^,.,..,., 

Members of Southern's gym team, the Gym Masters, will spend their sprine break 
touring Hawaii and California from Feb. 28 to March 10. The 35-membcr team 
under the direction of Ted Evans, will perform in Honolulu and parts of northern 
and southern California. In addition, the Gym Masters will have time to see sights 
relax, and take in the sunshine. "This tour is our biggest," said Evans "We will 
farther, be gone longer, and put on more shows than on any other tour." Above, 

million has already been pledged for the new 
building. He said the Board warns the cost to 
stay below $3.9 million, and that construction 
cannot begin until all the money is raised. Sahly 
said he hopes SC will have the money in 24 
months. He said construction may begin by 
late 1992 or early 1 993 and be completed by the 
fall of 1994 or spring of 1995. 

"That would be the general time frame we're 
looking for," he said. 

The need for a science complex has risen out 
of problems with the two buildings which cur- 
rently hold the sciences: Hackman Hall and

problem. It could be remodeled, but is so old 
and full of asbestos it would be too expensive.

Music Inconsistencies 

Dear Editors, 

I am writing in reference to a few inconsis- 
tencies that I have come across on campus, 
mainly associated with music. Having been 
told by many to drop the whole 
by others lo expect and accept 
cies. I decided to pray about it. I feel that the 
issue is being ignored, and I will respectfully 
fight for fair administration of school policy 
concerning music standards. TTiere is no 
reason for students to feel pressure to live up 
to men's standards, while those same men 
make no effort lo uphold those same stan- 

As the rule stands in the student handbook, 
rock music of any type is not acceptable on 
campus. Students will recall the style of 
music that was played at this year's events, 
including the SA Welcome Back Party, 
Promenade Harvest Party, and the Beach 
Party. Not only was the music rock, but loud, 
secular rock. According to the student hand- 
book, this type of music ". . . can have almost 
hypnotic and demonic possession of the 
human mind and body with its wild, loud, 
steady and primitive beat." Unfortunately, 
this is only the beginning. 

The problem has also reached outside our 
general campus, providing even more confu- 
sion. I refer to our own Campus Kitchen and 
Adventist Book Center. Until recently, the 
Campus Kitchen played Light Mix 105, which 
airs soft rock music. Nevertheless, the lyri- 
cal content is less than upholding the Biblical 
truth. CurTently,RX 107,PositiveHitRadio, 
has made several appearances over the CK's 
speakers. In addition, our ABC sells contem- 
porary Christian music, or what some clas- 
sify as rock music. There is a distinction 
between rock and contemporary Christian 
music, but that is not for me to decide. The 
judgement make on rock music in the student 
handbook apparently does not apply every- 

Recently, this inconsistency touched me 
personally, which is one of the reasons 1 am

writing this letter. I was asked nicely by a 
dorm staff member to take my posters down. 
"Some might find therp inappropriate," were 
the words 1 received. The posters were of 
Christian contemporary singers, and some of 
the singers were clothed female, which is 
prohibited by the Talge Handbook. (Inciden- 
tally, this opposite sex rule for posters does 
not apply to Thatcher Hall residents.) Yet, 
the music of these same artists is played before 
dorm worship, is sold at the ABC, and was 
scheduled to be heard live on our campus, 
March 18, 1991 (why was it cancelled?). 

I will say that I was angry about all of this, 
but prayer has allowed me to think things 
through clearly. When I ask about these 
problems, 1 get cut off or told that, "there will 
be inconsistencies." That is no reason. I 
hope someone will listen now, because I am 
ready to make some decisions based on the 
faith that God has given me, not what man 
imposes. I feel strongly that something needs 
to be changed. Ephesians 6:10-20.

Who Doesn't Care? 

Dear Editors, 

1 am writing in reference lo a letter in the 
January 31 issue of the Southern Accent, 
"Trash It," by Travis Stirewalt. As a student 
who loves Southern College, I was indignant 
after reading Mr. Stirewalt's letter. !n his 
letter he reported the carelessness of the 
students he observed in front of the men and 
women's dormitories. He drew the conclu- 
sion that since the students did not pick up 
the trash he set out, the students do not care 
about Southern College. I disagree with Mr. 
Stirewalt, and the following reasons show 
that I consider the reported results of his 
survey inconclusive. 

First of all, I do not think Mr. Stirewalt had 
the right lo suggest that the students do not 
care about S.C. without even questioning 
them. He asked the question, "Why didn't 
the odier 93 people (out of 94) do anything 
about the trash?" Instead of asking and let- 
ting the students answer why they did not 
pick up the trash, he himself answered the 

question with the suggestion that the students 
do not care. I believe Mr. Stirewalt spoke out 
of an invalid assumption. 

Although Mr. Stirewalt's point was good 
about keeping our campus clean, his conclu- 
sions were not thorough. He made a hasty 
generalization when he surveyed a select 
group of students (approx. six percent) and 
implied it to the entire student body. It does 
not seem fair for him to take such a small 
group of students and say that all the other 
students on campus are the same way. 

Finally, Mr. Stirewalt never explained the 
circumstances under which the survey was 
taken. Maybe it was a rainy day and the 
students wanted to get inside where ii was 
dry. Maybe the students had their hands full 
of books and were late for class. Maybe they 
were dressed up for class or for a date and did 
not want to get Dr. Pepper back-wash all 
over their clothes. Sometimes circumstances 
have prevented us from doing the things we 
would have liked lo have done. 

The fact that 93 people did not pick up 
trash in from of the dormitories does noi 
mean that the student body does not care 
about S.C. It simply means 93 people didn't 
pick up trash in front of the dormitories.

NO MORE of this Religion 'Garbage'! 

By Timothy Burrill 

"I'm sick and tired of all this There 
religious garbage! I've heard it 
lime and lim6 again. I'll turn 
, my life around someday, but 
I I've got other things to do right 

This has been something that 
I'm sure some of you have said 
at one point. I'm guilty of 
saying it myself. In fact, I say 
it much too often. 

I've been an Adventist all of 
my life. I heard all the Bible 
stories as a kid, ! always at- 
tended Adventist schools, and I 
rarely missed a Sabbath school 
or church service. 

Why don't I care anymore? 

If this question could be 
easily answered I think there 
wouldn't be as many in the 
same boat as myself. But I can 
give some of my opinions as to 
why this is happening. 
First of all, those who have 
[ grown up as Adventists don't 
1 to appreciate the "mes- 
sage" the church has to offer ir 
' comparison to new members. 

litial spark t 

Secondly, we have grown 
accustomed to hearing Bible 
teachings over and over again, 
making them meaningless to us. 
We rarely search the Bible 
ourselves to find out what is 
there for US. 

Also, for most of us time is 
valuable. There is not much of 
it to waste. Just about the first 
thing to go is our devotions. 
This is the easiest to delete 
since we will not be quizzed or 
tested on it. Bible study is lost 
in our busy schedules. 

Finally, we forget to pray. 
Prayer becomes almost nonex- 
istent. We talk to God only 
when we are in trouble or need 

Alright, enough of the prob- 
lems, let's find some solutions. 

For starters I think we need to 
realize that we are not perfect 
and that we cannot make 
changes by ourselves. If we try 
it by ourselves, we will defi- 
nitely fail. 

Next, we need to pray. I'm 

not talking about one prayer. 
Can you get to know somebody 
by just "Hi" on the promenade. 
I don't think so. It takes time 
to develop a relationship with 
God, just as it does any fiiend. 

Bible study is terribly impor- 
tant. In fact, just the other day 
I decided to actually open my 
Bible. I was surprised that 
things in there made sense. I 
found things that applied to my 

I don't think becoming a 
"Christian" will happen over- 
night, but I'm sure you will 
have a different attitude toward 
life in general as you apply 
prayer and Bible study to your 
daily activities. 

As this world gets worse, I 
am beginning to think about 
myself and what would happen 
if He came right now. This is 
a serious question we all need 
to ask ourselves. What would 

I can't tell you when the 
second coming will be, but I 
can tell you that it is probably 
sooner than we think. I know. 

we've heard this all before. 
But, what if it is finally that 
time. Are we going to gamble 
our life away just because we 
are not sure if it is the end? 

We are making many deci- 
sions that will affect our lives 
forever. Let's just make sure 
we don't forget the most impor- 
tant decision- will I follow 
Christ or will ! ignore what I 
have learned and gamble with 
my life. 

This is not a game. The 
game can't be played again. 
We've only got one chance. 
I'm not saying this to scare 
anyone, but maybe it will put 
things in perspective for both 
myself and maybe you also. 

Let me leave you with some- 
thing we have all heard and 
memorized, but I think it 
summarizes everything in one 
short statement of love. Think 
about it this time as you read it. 

"For God so loved the world 
that He gave His only son that 
whoever believes in Him will 
not perish, but have eternal 
live." John 3:16

The Real Truth 

Dear Editors: 

I am writing in response to the 
"Think Before You Act" letter 
printed in the Feb. 14 Southern 
Accent. Before we sit and call 
Alice McGil! ignorant for not 
knowing much about Sojourner 
Truth's Adventist connections, 
let's self-evaluate ourselves for 
being ignorant to die "Black 
Culture." First of all,Idon'tthink 
the assembly was centered around 
Adventism. I do recall it being 

for Black History Week. It's 
purpose was to educate the "ig- 
norant" ones who have neglected 
to leani about influential black 
people such as Sojourner Truth. 
I was surprised that a lot of the 
white college students had no in- 
tellectual questions to ask seeing 
the majority of them were not 
taught black history in school. 
Furthermore, we carmot blame the 
elementary students for not know- 
ing about black history because 
they are not taught about the black 
culture. I feel it's important they 
know about the people whom 

they've been taught are not equal 
to them. 

Second of all, what does Ellen 
G. White have to do with Black 
History Week? I am not in any 
way down-playing the writer or 
some of the facts stated in his 
editorial, but I personally feel 
what was slated was really a way 
to avoid learning about how some 
ofyourancestors mistreated black 
people. He slated, "We can be 
proud of an Adventist heritage 
that includes people like So- 
journer Truth." I agree 100 per- 
cent with that. But can you be 

proud of an Adventist heritage 
that until 1974 didn't have any 
blacks graduate from this institu- 
tion? So let's not call a NON- 
TUTION.— Richard Pulliam

Advice on the 
Intramural of 
Hard Knocks 

Knee pads? Check. Shoulder pads? 
Check. Helmet? Check. Mouth gaurd? 
Check. O.K., ready for floor hockey 

We are about to enter a part of the 
intramural system that is most unique. 
We are about to switch gears, mentally, 
and take a new attitude towards our 
fellow opponent. Now, contact is not 
only allowed, but essential for survival. 
Why is it that we go to such great pains 
to avoid being physical in our other 
sports, but then when we play floor 
hockey, we throw it all out. Should our 
perception of the correct way to play be 
based on the National Hockey League? 

I've been on tezuns that have won and 

less physical, and I can say that the 
worst way to lose is to a learn that is 
less skilled but wins because ihey can 
beat your butt. 

You may have heard it said that a fish 
rots from the head first. ! believe this is 
an important factor in the success of the 
season. If the captains want to play 
physical, they can incite the whole team 
also, and the referees contribute nega- 
tively by letting them get away with it. 

At the beginning of the basketball sea- 
son, sportsmanship became the top 
priority. Surely we can cany the same 
anitude for everything else. Some may 
say that there isn't a problem but I will 
guarantee you that those people are 
larger than the average hockey player. 
The rest of us worry about getting hit 
first, and the puck .second. 

Hockey is an awesome game involv- 
ing tremendous coordination and skill, if 
played right, and lots of fun. I'm not 
putting in my vote for the invention of a 
non-physical Hawaiian floor hockey 
game, either. Just remember the objecU 
of the game: get exercise, develop 
skills, score goals. Sound simple? It is. 
That's my idea of fun. If your idea of 
fun involves hitting also, then I suggest 
you go play hockey in the middle of i- 

Ultimately, I hope everyone takes ad- 
v^tage of the tremendous potential of 
this sport, just don't take away anyone 
else's in the process

The Life of a College President 

TO SOME, the job of a college 
president might seem simple — 
stay on campus and make sure 
everything runs smoothly. 
However, those who have tried 
to get in contact with President 
Sahly often find that he is not 
always available. 

Sahly has numerous responsi- 
bilities other than Southern Col- 
lege that require him to travel. 
His job requires him to be a 
member of many boards, such as 
the Florida Hospital, Academy, 
and Conference boards. He is 
also a member of the Board of

Higher Education, the Union 
Executive Committee, and the 
Bener Business Bureau in Chat- 

In some cases, the reason Sahly 
is on so many boards is so he can 
input the needs and desires of 
Southern College. He also takes 
suggestions from committees, and 
updates other members on 
changes that have taking place 
on campus. 

Sahly doesn't just attend meet- 
ings, he is also a public relations 
person for the college and is 
expected to raise money. 

The Southern Union is SC's 
major source of money. It gives 
the college $1.3 million a year. 
Only 55 percent of the student 
tuition supports the college 
budget. The remaining amount 
must be raised by corporations, 
foundations, alumni, and friends 
of the college. 

"According to research, the 
average college president spends

In his interview Tuil said, "The

position. ..a lot of vehicles were 
making good hits on the Iraqis. 
One minute I was doing fine, the 
next minute I woke up outside 
the vehicle... You didn't see any-

According to Murrell Tull, 
Ronald was hit by an A- 10 mis- 
sile. Murrell said, "Every time I 
talk about it it gives me the chills." 

Tull was taken to a field hospi- 
tal in Saudi Arabia. His injuries 
consisted of bums to the face, a 
bruised lung, and a back fracture. 
On the interview Tull was wear- 
ing a neck brace which will 
remain for at least eight weeks. 

King asked, "You're only 22 
and there are great philosophers 
that have a problem with this so 
I'm going to try. What does it 
feel like to be a survivor?" 
Tull replied, "I've thought about 
thatalot. Basically you justknow 
the reason. That's because of 
God. That is the only way I can ' 
describe it." 

After that King added that it 
was fate, or providence. 

Sophomore Rick Mann, who 
watched the interview in the stu- 
dent center, commented on 
King's input: "That's expected 
in a secular world like that. I 
don't think that was the answer 
Larry King was looking for." He 
added that in the end, Tull's 
message was "simple and direct."

ALEX BRYAN, former SA vice-president, 
took over as SA president at the Feb. 27 
Student Associaiton Senate meeting. Bryan 
also appointed Rob Fulbright, president-elect 
for next year, to the vice-president's post for 
the remainder of the year. This action fol- 
lows the Feb. 12 resignation of Woody White 
as the student body leader. 

The SA Constitution states that a vacancy 
in the presidential chair must be filled by the 
vice-president provided 75 percent of the 
school year has not passed. The new presi- 
dent must then choose a vice-president. 

According to SA Sponsor K.R. Davis, Bryan 
did not immediately lake over the presidency 
after White's resignation because he was 
campaigning for next year's chair. 

"It wouldn't have been fair to him or the 
other candidates becauase it might have in- 
fluenced his votes negatively or positively,"

_ Port Moresby, PAPUA NEW GUINEA— A mud- 
slide in the Papua New Guinea highlands wiped out 
several villages, killing at least 200 people. Prime 
Minister Rabbie Namaliu said it was too soon lo know 

actly how many people were buried in what he 
called one of the nation's worst natural disasters. 
Papua New Guinea, north of Australia, is a former 
Australian protectorate thai gained independence in 
1975. The country has a mainly Mclanesian population 
of 3.5 million and shares its border on the main island 
of New Guinea with Indonesian's Irian Jaya province. 

Damascus, SYRIA— A British official said he plans 
to urge Syrian leaders to use their influence to help 
gain the freedom of 13 Western hostages held in 
Lebanon. British Foreign Office Minister Douglas 
Hogg said he would raise the issue of the hostages 
during meetings with Syrian officials "because, of 
course," the Syrians have good contacts with the 
Iranians. "The Syrians have been very helpfii! in the 
matter of the hostages," said Hogg. Iran and Syria 
have been instrumental in securing the release of 
several hostages in recent years. Iran has close ties 
with the Shiiie Muslim Hezbollah, or Party of God, the 
umbrella group that is believed to be holding most of 
the 13 hostages. Syria, Iran's main Arab ally, has 
40,000 troops in Lebanon and is the main power broker

H CHICAGO — In an accidental discovery that could 
help clean up a vexing environmental problem, federal 
workers have found that lime appears to be an inexpen- 
sive and effective way to destroy PCBs, heat-resistant 
chemicals used as coolants in older electrical equip- 
ment but suspected of causing cancer and birth defects. 
Tests are still being done to determine the effects of 
using lime, used in making steel, sewage treatment and 
acid neutralization. "The PCB problem in this country 
is a major problem and consequently this could be a 
very significant finding, said Robin J. Robinson, execu- 
tive vice president of Clean Sites. 

H Cambridge, MA — A jury convicted a woman with 
several personalities of heroin charges, rejecting her 
lawyer's claim that she couldn't be held responsible for 
the actions of her dnig-using identity. Witnesses said 
Norma Roman, 39, has at least seven personal ities. 
Ms. Roman was arrested Jan. 10, 1990, at her Lowell 
apartment, where police said they found 67 bags of 
herom and about $13,000 in cash. She was arrested 
again Aug. 17 for possession of heroin. Defense 
attorney Steven Rappaport said the "Core Personality" 
of Norma could not control the drug dealing activities 
of another dominant personality-the streetwise, defiant 
Vicky. The defendant testified, appearing to switch 
personalities on the witness stand. Testifying as Vicky, 
she recounted precise details of her drug habit and 
described how she would hide the drugs for fear that 
they would be thrown out by Norma or another person- 
ality, named Alice.

Three WSMC Announcers 
Survive Spring Break 

WHILE MANY Southern students 
headed for the beach or hit the ■ 
slopes, three guys hit the air, .but 
their bodies never left the ground. 
Rob Rempher, Mike Ldrey. and 
Don Godman traded their spring 
break for a week with the WSMC 
microphone. They were the only 
three of the regular 18 announcers 
who stayed to work over break. 

Rob. Mike, and Don covered a 
workday which normally requires 
eight announcers. Don, who car- 
ried most of the load, worked a split 
shift. He worked from 5 to 1 1 a.m., 
and from 4 to 7 p.m. Rob covered 
the day shift, working from 1 1 a.m. 
to 4 p.m. 
Mike was scheduled from 7 p.m. 

until midnight. After going back to his 
room for a nap, he would return at 4:30 
a.m. lo write news stories. "It was 
tough, but being out of school made it 
easier to focus on one thing. It was 
actually kind of fun," he said. 

Long shifts brought fatigue, tension, 
and more work for each of the three 

"Toward the end of the week it got 
worse. My voice started getting 
weaker," said Don. He also commented 
that he "learned to appreciate the 
amount of work each person at the 
station does." 

Dan Landrum, WSMC program di- 
rector, said "the three guys who stayed 
did an incredible job. They got every- 
thing done. It was great," he said. 

Southern May Hold Original 
Gettysburg Address 

have an original manuscript of the 
Gettysburg Address in its posses- 
Medal of Honor Museum in Chat- 

Dr. Jerome Clark, a Lincoln spe- 
cialist and former faculty of South- 
em, who now volunteers his time in 
Southern's Lincoln Civil War Li- 
brary, was contacted to help authen- 
ticate the manuscript. It could be 
the original 172-word address which 
was rewritten by President Abra- 
ham Lincoln on March 11, 1864, 
for the Soldiers' and Sailors' Fair at 
Baltimore, said Clark. Lincoln 
wrote five different versions of "The 
Gettysburg Address" after his 
speech. They are located in various 
places around the U.S., including 
the Library of Congress and Har- 
vard University. Lincoln read the 
original speech from his handwrit- 
ing on the back of an envelope, said 

Clark has contacted John Sellers 
who works in the manuscript divi- 
sion of the Library of Congress. 
Sellers is providing a list of profes- 
sionals in the South who can au- 
thenticate the document, which must 
be chemically tested to determine 
its originality. 

"We don't know yet whether the 
manuscript is genuine or not," said 
Clark. "But if it's not, it's a clever 
copy." If original, thedocument will 
be on display in the library. 

The Lincoln Civil War Library, lo- 
cated on the third floor on the McKee 
Library, has over 5,000 books, includ- 
ing sections on pre-Civil War, Lincoln, 
and Civil War. Other items are also on 
display, such as campaign buttons from 
the 1860 election, an original letter 
written by Gen. Robert E. Lee, law 
books from Lincoln's library. Gen. 
Ulysses S. Grant's signature in his 
memoirs, and the original music fomi 
"Lincoln's Funeral March." 

Clark, husband of SC English profes- 
sor Dr. Ann Clark, and Dr. Jerry Lien, 
forrher teacher in Southern's commu- 
nications department, volunteer their 
time in the library. Clark was the cura- 
tor for the library when it opened in 
1979. He conducts tours in the library 
and gives talks on Lincoln. He is a 
member of the Civil War Round Table. 
the Association of SDA Historians, and 
Phi Alpha Theta, a national history 
honor society. Hours for the Lincoln

Kang Triumphs in Bowl Championships 

WHEN JESSICA Vining an- 
swered the first question in the 
College Bowl championship 
match, things looked good for her 
team, which was playing a man 
down. But it was not to be. 

The eighth annual battle of the 
brains took place during assem- 
bly Feb. 28, with Jin Kang's team 
faking an easy victory over Keith 
Wahlbon's team, 215 to 55. 
Members of the winning team 
included John Caskey, Warren 
Downs, Danny Song, and Kang. 
The match took place with 
Keith Wahlbon's team consist- 
ing of only three members. Team 
captain Wahlbon and Chris 
Carlson were both gone on a band 
trip. Team members Arthur 
Chamberlain and Ken Jeffers, 
plus alternate Vining, made up 
ihe team.

"The amount of energy the 
uses will fund its cn«t in 

years," he said. "That 

an eventual return of approxi- 
mately 20 percent on our invest- 
ment— which is real good," he 

Bidwellsaid the main reason o_*- 
for the switch to the heat pumps tjIyCLTly 

is to save on operating costs while 

lowering student expenses at the 
same time. "We purchased the 
units in order to keep operating 
costs as low as possible, thus, 
keeping student costs down as a 
direct result," he said. 

Ron Qualley, dean of men, said 
Talge residents seem pleased with 
the new heat pumps. "Every 
remark about the units has been 
positive and I'm happy to have 
ihem," he said. 

Thatcher Hall residents also 
received the pumps first semes- 

the 24-minute match. 

Kang said before the game he 
was "cautiously confident" his 
team would win the match. 
"Honestly, I thought that we had 
pretty good balance, but I was 
not sure how good the other teams 
would be. I thought that we could 
be a top half contender." 

Vining said she would like to 
participate in the College Bowl, 
although she had her reservations 
at the start of the season. Playing 
in the Bowl was "exciting and 
challenging, but I did not want to 
do it at first," she said. "I didn't 
think we would make it past the 
second match." 

There were 10 other teams 

which were eliminated before the 
final. Among some of those 
teams is Kevin Snider, who 
played because "I like hitting the 
buzzer. I am a big Jeopardy fan," 
he said. 

Fear of hitting the buzzer was a 
problem for DeAnn Champion, 
who played on Snider's team. 
"The first game is the worst. You 
are afraid to answer. You may 
know the answer, but are not 
confident enough to buzz in," she 

College Bowler Mark Addison 
said the best part of participating 
is "the challenge of seeing how 
much you know and how fast you 

said Davis. "We felt it best to 
wait until after the elections." 

However, Bryan, who lost in 
the generals for the president's 
position, will still get his chance 
to work as SC's student body 

"I am optimistic about the rest 
of the year because I must take 
over where Woody left off, but I 
would like to make some 
changes," said Bryan. 

Rob Fulbiight, SA president- 

elect for next year, 
by Bryan and approved by the 
senate to the vice-president's post 
for the remainder of the year. 

"This will give Rob the experi- 
ence necessary to know how the 
senate works, which he will need 
next year as president," said 

"I want to thank Alex for the 
opportunity to work with SA for 
the remainder of the year. I feel 
it will give me experience for next 
year," said Fulbright. |

Letters to the Editors 

The Wrong Message 

I am writing to respond to a recent article in 
the Southern Accent which I feel conveys a 
message about me that is totally erroneous 
and inaccurate. After reading your article, 
"The Life of a College President," I would 
make the following comments. 

The picture, which is obviously staged, gives 
the impression there's a long line of students 
waiting to see me. I am not available and my 
secretary has no idea where I am. The article 
goes on to say that I am away from the campus 
50 percent of the lime. The article also 
conveys the message that I love to travel, 
and, therefore, am gone a great deal. I would 
like to make the following corrections: 

1 . I have an open-door policy, and as many 
students can tell, I stop whatever I am doing 
and make their appointments first and high- 
est priority. I think my daily calendar and 
schedule will confirm that. 

2. I am never gone away from campus in 
that my secretary does not make my travel 
arrangements, knowing what flights I'm on, 
where I am, what meetings I am attending, 
and, therefore, knows where I am and how I 
can be reached when I am away from cam- 

3. I have counted up the days I will be 
away from campus for the next three months, 
as well as checking my calendar for the past 
nine. In that twelve month period I will be 
away from the campus 71 days, including 
weekends, which means i will be gone about 
19 percent of the time, not 20. This includes 
weekends at churches, camp meetings. Gen- 
eral Conference Committees, Honda Hospi- 
tal Boards, Southern Union Committees, 
Georgia-Cumberland Conference Commit- 
tees, and Sunbelt Health System Board 
meetings, as well as three Board of Higher 
Education meetings and Fall Council at the 
General Conference. These meetings are all 
required for me to attend. In addition, 1

Worship Service 

By Virvil Covel 

,.,. j^^. prayers answered? Do you have 
a relationship with Christ that lives and 
breathes? Do you have a vital relationship 
that makes you sure of a living, loving God? 
Are you at peace? Are you happy? 

As I interact with my fellow students on 
campus, I hear many discontented rumblings 
about different rules. Some complain about 
work, school, and traffic rules, and others 
Christian rules and church standards. Now, 
I'll admit there are some pretty dumb and 
inconsistent rules for work, school, and traf- 
fic, and I expect to hear grumblings about 
such. But when I hear people grumble about 
Christian standards, more specifically stan- 
dards of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, 
I shiver. 

Somewhere, somehow, the place of Chris- 
tian rules for living have been belittled. The 
reason for them has been lost. Paul says in 
Romans 12:1: "I beseech you, therefore, 
brethren, by the mercies t)f God, that you 
your bodies a living sacrifice, holy. 

Notice the word "present." In Greek this 
word literally means "to place beside." This 
word was used for a person presenting an 
offering to the temple. It carries the implica- 

tion of putting at one's disposal. Where did 
the cowboys wear their guns? At their side. 
Why? So it would be ready when they needed 
it, i.e. so it would be at their disposal. We are 
to place ourselves by the side of God, at his 
disposal. Our whole being, a living sacrifice, 
because it is our reasonable service. The 
Greek word "reasonable" is "LOGIKOS," 
which is closely akin to our word "logical." 
This is used to contrast compulsion or ritual. 
It is our logical service to put ourselves at the 
disposal of God. 

The most interesting word, however, is 
"service." In Greek, this word means either 
service or worship. There is no distinction 
between the two in this word. We call the 
Sabbath morning program our worship 
ice. But would it not be more correct to say 
that by following God. and by obeying the 
Christian rules for our lives that this i 
true "worship service?" 

In the following issues of the Southern 
Accent, we will explore our true "worship 
service" to God and the reasons for it. We 
will also sec why our prayers are not being 
answered and why we don't have that living, 
breathing relationship with Christ. And we 
will find the way to peace and happiness. 
The answers are in one place: the Word of 
God (The Light) from Jesus Christ (the Rock).

Adventists are represented among the 27 
private colleges, all church operated, here in

private college things that I am occupied with,

A/C Thermostat Controls to be Placed in Both Dormitories 

stall computerized thermostats in each dorm 
room later this year, according to Ed Lucas. 
Energy Management director. 

Lucas said thermostats will be programmed 
with the class schedules of the students in 
each room. During their classes, the com- 
puter will shut down the heat pumps in their 
rooms, then bring the temperature back to 
normal before they return. An override but- 

ton will be provided in case a student doesn't 
attend class. 

The temperature range of the heat pumps 
will be narrower, but not too restrictive, Lucas 
said. The temperature in offices can be set to 
conserve more energy, but "in living quarters 
it must be more comfortable," he said. "If

A cold spell during Christmas vacation in 

1989 caused energy usage to triple, accord- 
ing to Lucas. Only a few students were in the 
dorm, so the energy was wasted, he said.

the new system." 

Some students are apprehensive about the 

system. "I like to have control over the

New Dormitory Feature to 
Provide Fire Safety

SPRING IS in the air 

TTie U.L. -approved, spring-loaded hinges 
are being installed on every door in both 
dormitories. The cost will be between $35 
and $50 per door. 

According to Charies Lucas, head of the 
engineering department, the fire marshall said 
to do it. 

The hinges are a direct result of the fire that 
occurred in Talge Hall in September. They 
keep the doors closed to prevent hallway 
smoke from enteririg the rooms in the event 
of a fire. A closed door will also help contain 
a fire within the room it started in . 

Some students' reactions to the hinges have 
been negative. 

Kirk Sharpe, sophomore behavioral science 
major, said, "They're a pain in the neck. If 
you walk out your door and forget some- 
thing, you turn around in lime to have your 
door slam in your face."

.In the World 

^Safwan, IRAQ— Thousands of hungo' and sick Iraqis 
jammed U.S. Army outposts pleading for food, water and 
medical attention. More than 1,500 Iraqis, mostly elderly 
women and young children, stood in line for hours in a 
driving rainstorm during the weekend as soldiers pa- 
tiently handed out freeze-dried meatballs, beef and rice 
meals along with bottles of water. "It's an odd policy," 
said Maj. David Estes of Greenville. N.C "One day you 
kill people, another day you feed them." Shairha Ab- 
dulla, a mother of seven barefoot and undernourished 
boys said, "This war, we had nothing except dates and 
tomatos. No one likes Saddam...for getting us into this 
problem. No one." 

■ MOSCOW — Declaring Lithuanian independence is 
"inevitable," former President Richard Nixon said when 
visiting the site of the bloodiest clash during the Krem- 
lin's crackdown on the secession-minded Baltic republic. 
Nixon spoke to a cheering crowd of several thousand 
people at the broadcasting town in Vilnius, the Lithu- 
anian capital. Fifteen protesters died there on Jan. 13, 
when Soviet troops stormed the tower. Nixon said the 
deaths directed "the attention of the whole world" to the 
cause of Lithuania's independence. "1 cannot tell you 
today how and when the independence will be consum- 
mated," continued Nixon, "but you can be sure that you 
have the support of the great majority of the people of the 
United States, and that independence must come, but let 
it come peacefully..." 

^Leipzig- GERMANY— More than 85.000 demonstra- 
tors, many shouting anti-govemment slogans, took to the 
streets of several cities to protest economic misery in the 
former East Germany. Demonstrators said Chancellor 
Helmut Kohl had failed to keep election promises to 
rapidly improve living conditions in eastern Germany. 
By far the biggest demonstration was in Leipzig, where 
about 80,000 people joined in protests. 

...In the Nation 

H Dallas, TX — A woman retrieved her 4-year-old son 
from a drug dealer's home where the child's father had 
left him overnight after allegedly borrowing $40 to buy 
crack cocaine- The mother enlisted the aid of a neighbor 
to rescue the boy from an apartment where they con- 
fronted three people. The father later tried to take the 
boy back and attacked the mother. He is being held for 
investigation of assault, but an investigation into charges 
that he sold the child to get money for drugs was dropped 
because of insufficient evidence, police said. 

■ WASHINGTON— A network of 65 new weather 
monitoring bouys will be scattered across the Pacific 
Ocean over the next two years in a effort to improve 
weather forecasts. The National Oceanic and Atmos- 
pheric Administration said the United Stales, France and 
Japan were cooperating to place th moored bouys in a 
series of north-south lines spread across thousands of 
miles of ocean - from the Galapagos Islands to New 
Guinea. The bouys will include instruments that meas- 
ure wind at the surface, air temperature, relative humid- 
ity, water temperature at several levels below the surface, 
water pressure and salinity. 

■Cleveland, TN— A man pleaded guilty to mail fraud 
in a scheme where he defrauded a finance company and 
his insurance customers out of more than $660,000 in 
1987-88. He was owner and manager of O.W. Hudson 
Insurance Agency, which specialized in selling policies 
to businesses. He devised a scheme in which he would 
take policy payments frwm customers, but then tell the 
AFCO finance company that the customers needed loans 
to finance their premium payments. He forged the cus- 
tomers' signatures on loan applications and pocketed the 
money when the loan proceeds came through.

Vandalism Costs Southern $280 

IT TOOK the Israelites seven days, 
an army, and God's assistance to 
bring down the walls of Jericho. But 
it look only a few minutes and a 
strong foot to damage the knee-high 
wall bordering the Student Center 

Vandals knocked seven concrete 
slabs off the wall the night of March 
20. Director of Engineering Char- 
les Lucas said that a student reported 
the act the following morning. 

The slabs were recemented to the 
wall Monday. According to Lucas, 
this cost $280. When asked how 
much vandalism costs the school an- 

nually, Lucas was hesitant to give an 

"I don't want to give anyone any 
ideas," he said, but added that the bill 
runs several thousand dollars. 

According to Lucas, the most com- 
mon acts of vandalism include damage 
to bathroom walls and petitions. He 
said the school budgets money for such 
repairs. However, the college must 
sometimes exceed that budget, he said. 

No one knows who is responsible for 
this lates act of defacing school prop- 
erty, but one thing is certain: the bill is 
ultimately paid for by the students of 
Southern College.

Iraq Quells Revolts in Major 
Cities, Refugees Say 

From Media Reports 

BRUTAL tactics, the Iraqi military 
has recaptured every major city in 
southern Iraq, according to resis- 
tance fighters and refugees who fled 
to U.S. military outposts Monday 
seeking food, shelter, and asylum. 
Tired, hungry, and dirty, the refu- 
gees said they had escaped from 
Basra, Najaf, Nasiriya and other 
southern cities as Saddam Hussein's 
troops crushed anti-govemment 
activity with tanks, helicopters, and 
heavy artillery. 

The official Iraqi news agency, 
monitored in Cyprus, reported 
Monday that Vice President Taha 
Yasin Ramadan had visited the city 
of Karbala and urged reconstruction 
efforts to wipe out traces of the 

The rebels in the south, made up 
mostly of Shiite Muslims, have lost 
control of all the larger cities and 
towns that they controlled as recently 
as March 15, the refugees said. 

Fighting continued in norther Iraq, 
where Kurdish rebels reported 
numerous casualties from air as- 
saults by forces loyal to Saddam. 

In other developments Monday: 

•Iraq, in a letter to the U.N. secre- 
tary general, accused Iranian mili- 
tary units of crossing the border, 
firing on Iraqi soldiers and siding 
with rebels in the south. The letter 

cited 13 border incidents that allegedly 
took place earlier this month. 

■Jordan's King Hussein flew to 
Damascus, Syria, to meet with Presi- 
dent Hafez Assad after seven months 
of strain caused by their conflicting view 
on the gulf crisis. Syria sided with the 
U.S. -led coalition; Jordan tilted toward 

•The Pentagon denied a report in The 
Washington Post that U.S. heavy ar- 
mored units drove 60 miles north to the 
Euphrates River valley over the week- 
end in a major repositioning apparently 
aimed at intimidating Saddam. Penta-

"It's not just fitting students into

Spring Break Tours 

Southern Students Build Market, Sightsee in Honduras 

THE BAY Islands of Honduras became 
"home" for 32 Southern College students 
Spring Break. The students 
a mission to build a market. 

SC Chaplain Jim Herman has been taking 
students on silmilar trips to Honduras for the 
past eight years. In previous times, students 
had the opportunity to visit conference and 
union offices, schools and apartments. 

Herman states two reasons for making this 
trip. First, it fulfills a need that would go 
unmet without the students' presence. Sec- 
ond, it allows students who live in an affluent 
society to see how it is to live in a less- 
fortunate environment- 
Herman recalls a comment a student made 
to him during the trip: "You know, the sim- 
plest things that I take for granted are major 
life goals here. 

The market, which measured 122 by 62

Southern's Band Members Make a Run for the Border 

By Brenda Keller 

TACO BELL was the first taste of America 
for Southern College Band members return- 
ing from their Spring Break tour of Mexico. 
After crossing the border into the US, stu- 
dents spotted Taco Bell and begged to stop. 
"We wanted some real Mexican food," said 
band member Sharon Wright. 

The band presented eight concerts during 
their 12-day stay in Mexico. Their first 
concert in Mexico was in the Omni Max 
Auditorium in Monterrey. Appreciation for 
the concert was expressed in a society page 
article in the Monterrey Express, which in- 
cluded several color photographs of the band. 
"All the programs went quite well," said 
Pat Silver, band director. She said the band 
had the best reception in their Saturday night 
concert at the University of Montemorelos. 
The crowd was so enthusiastic that "we could 
have done an encore of every piece we played 
there," she said. 

Although many Mexican people were 
friendly, the language difference was a great 
barrier to effective communication. Wright, 
who has taken Spanish classes, finally found 
a use for her studies. "Most of the time they 

were talking too fast, so ! couldn't eavesdrop 
very well," she said, "but I could usually 
make myself understood." 

Those who had not mastered Spanish called 
on band member Edwin Disla, originally from 
the Dominican Republic. After ordering his 
own food at a restaurant, Disla would go 
from table to table helping everyone else 
understand the Spanish menus. 

Disla said of the trip, "It was real neat 
because I was exposed to so many people 
who spoke my own language." 

Disla was the center of attention as he sang 
"Grenada" in downtown Mexico City with a 
Mariachi band. His friends volunteered him 
to solo and collected among themselves 
28,000 pesos ($47) to hire the band to ac- 
company him. 

"Everyone quieted down and listened. They 
were surprised to hear a guest singing in 
Spanish. Everyone enjoyed it," commented 

Among the many sightseeing activities was 
a visit to famous Chapultepec Park and a 
performance of "Ballet Folklorico dc Mex- 
ico." But the highlight for many was the day 

Band members enjoyed a variety of activi- 
ties there such as boating, parasailing, and 
shopping using the barter system. The bariar 
system is talking prices down. 

Disla said, "I need to go back to Acapulco 
and spend about a week." 

A highlight for Jeanne Dickinson was the 
driving experience. She described it as a 
game of "Mexican chicken." The first prob- 
lem was that the roads were often very bumpy. 
The second problem was the lack of a speed 
limit or highways consisting of two lanes I 
bordered by a narrow shoulder on either side. 
This, however, is used as a four-lane high- 
way. Dickinson said that driving in Mexico 
gave her "the best adrenaline rush since 
bumper cars and roller-coasters." 

At the end of their eventful tour, band 
members faced a 29-hour bus ride home. 

Silver commented, "The next time I go, 
I'm going to fly." 

Dickinson summed up the tour by saymg, 
"It was exhausting, but exhilarating."

"Something Special" to 
Hold Home Show 

THE GROUP "Something Special" will 
perform their annual Home Show March 30 
at 8 p m m the Collegedale Academy Audi- 

Dr Marvm Robertson, the group's direc- 
tor and music departmen chainnan, says the 
theme of the program is an "American Col- 
lage which will mclude Disney songs and 
selections from The Little Mermaid" and 

West Side Story The group will also 
perform Chattanooga Choo-Choo," which 
they consider their signature song." 

Robertson said the idea of forming "Some- 
thing Special was bom out of my brain." 
Started dunng the 1988-89 school year, the 
group was an expenment in providing en- 
tertamment that is family-oriented," he said. 
We aren t mterested in an MTV image," 
said Robertson He said that "Something 
Special aims to stnke a balance between 
keeping up with the times and holding on to 
traditional values Although the group's 
purpose IS to provide light entertainment, it 
does perform sacred concerts for church 

Something Special began this school year 
with almost a completely new group consist- 
ing of twelve members. In the past, they had 

Thev had to learn to become a group. It 
takei d certain amount of chemistry," 
Robertson said They also have to adopt a 

stage presence by learning to express the 
feeling of music through facial and body 

Dr Robertson said that each minute the 
group spends performing represents one hour 
of practice. He added that the reason the 
group doesn't perform much first semester Is 
that they spend most of that time learning 
lyrics and choreography. 

"Something Special" performed several 
numbers in a Christmas concert with the SC 
Band. Their second semester concerts have 
included two shows at Northgate Mall and a 
trip to Florida. They [jerformed for the 
Adventist Women's Retreat at Camp Kulaqua 
in Florida. 

"That audience was probably the best we've 
had. They were a fun audience," said 
Robertson. After all, as he put it, "It is some- 
thing special, not just another concert."

dents got a glimpse into the 
gery of the future March 1 8, when 
Dr. Richard Liu of Chattanooga 
lectured about laser surgery, 

Liu showed several videotapes 
of surgeries he has performed. 
During the surgery, he inserted a 
tube containing a small video 
camera, laser, and several other 
surgical instruments through a 
small incision in the patient. 

Watching the image from the 
video camera, Liu can make 
precision cuts, stitches and many 
other tasks previously possible 

ly through open surgery. 

"We can do anything that can 
be done in open surgery," Liu 

He said the time involved is 
decreased considerably in laser 
surgery. The technique is used to 
^ndixes, perform hys- 
and remove tubal 
pregnancies. Liu said it takes 
about fifteen minutes to remove 
(he typical appendix, and the 
patient can be home the next day. 

Marketing Class to SaveCredit Union $5,000 

STUDENTS IN the Marketing 
Management class at SC are sav- 
ing the Collegedale Credit Union 
$5,000 while helping the union 
better serve its customers. 

Every year, marketing students 
in the class design a real-world 
marketing plan and then submit a 
recommendation report to the 
participating business. 

Cliff Olsen, Marketing Manage- 
ment teacher, said this kind of 
research normally would cost a 
business approximately $5,000. 

Olsen said the class gives the 
students hands-on experience; 
real practice on how to go about

According the Desiree Paradis, 
a freshmen marketing major, 
some of the preliminary results 
of the surveys show common 
complaints. Some areas they 
would like to see improvement in 
are the hours the credit union is 
open, long hues, and the charge 
on service charges. Paradis added 
that even though customers had a 
few complaints, overall service 
was rated very high. 

The final phase of the project 
will be the presentation of their 
findings in a written report to be 
presented to the credit union man- 
agement at the end of the semes-

Randy While, Collegedale 
Credit Union president, said he 
knows the importance of cus- 
tomer feedback and is looking 
forward to receiving the report. 
White said he plans to implement 
its findings as long as it's within 
their means to do so. 

Olson feels the students are 
enjoying the class. Bobby Young, 
a senior LTHC major, says he 
likes learning the step-by-slep 
process of developing a market- 
ing plan. 

Olsen said, "At the end of the 
semester, when the class sees all 
they've done, and the 20 to 30 
page report, they're usually very 
proud of their accomplishment."

Letters to the Editors 

Wait a Minute. . .or Hour! 

Dear Editors: 

Many Saturday nights students are faced 
with the fact ihey have to discontinue their 
evening with special people or hurriedly rush 
back from an outing in order to get to the 
dorms by 12 a.m. It seems this curfew could 
cause distress and even danger to some stu- 
dents. To avoid problems, 1 think the curfew 
should be until 1 a.m. on Saturday nights. 

Relationships are a very important part of a 
college student's life. Besides academic 
success, social success is also a necessity in 
college. Therefore, when Saturday night 
comes and people spend special time with 
friends or family, it is hard to stop everything 
to go into the dorm at curfew. It gets to be a 
real bother when parents or relatives are in 
town and they have to cut their evening short 
because student.s have to be back. 

For most college students. Sabbath is the 
only lime they are not required to study. 
Therefore, they take advantage of the oppor- 
tunity to get off campus for a while. Since 
church and Sabbath School are a require- 
ment, students can't leave to go on outings 
until the afternoon. Most places to visit are 
at least an hour and a half away, so when they 
start to head back to the dorms, a big portion 
of the evening is blown. That doesn't in- 
clude the part of the evening ruined because 
of constant worry about the time. If the time 
is forgotten, some students have to speed 
back to the dorms, which sometimes leads to 
automobile accidents. 

Changing the curfew in the dorms to 1 a.m. 
would give students less worry about rushing 
through the day's activities. After all, no one 
is going to study on Saturday night anyway, 
and on Sunday morning most people have no 
set time to get up, so they want to stay up 

Burn My American Flag? 

By Timothy BtirrUl 

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privi- 
lege of attending a home-coming celebra- 
tion for the troops of Desert Storm. The 
ceremonies included an appearance by 
President Bush, 

Old and young were waving flags, 
singing and playing patriotic songs, and 
cheering for America. There was a feeling 
of unity and togetherness that I have never 
felt before. 

It was a thrilling experience to see and 
feel the excitement. Patriotism was really 
strong. I have never seen so many Ameri- 
can flags in one place before. 

As a kid, I remember how patriotic 
everyone was during the bicentennial year, 
1976. But that didn't compare to what I 
saw during this celebration. 

At one point, the song "God Bless Amer- 
ica" was sung. The crowd became silent 
with emotion as the song rang out. This 
left me, along with most everyone else, 
with an incredible feeling. 

Even though I am a strong believer in 
America, this rather quick emergence of 
patriotism has me thinking about what it 
might become. 

Such patriot: 
catalyst that ui 
allowing the ir 

One politicii 
tion said, "It it 

im, I believe, could be the 
ites the nation, thereby 
iplementation of Sunday 

that spoke for that celebra- 
o fitting that we should do 
this on a Sunday because it is God who we 
should thank for bringing these soldiers 
home safely." 

Even President Bush mentioned that 
prayers were the only reason these soldiers 
came home safely. Granted, there is 
nothing wrong with crediting God with 
the victory in the Gulf, but I am worried as 
to how far this might go. 

If these laws are enforced, this could 
easily make the Sabbath-keeper an "unpa- 
triotic" American. And with such high 
levels of patriotism, it would be very easy 
to enforce such laws. 

It amazes me how fast the United States 
of America has become the leader of all 
nations. Communism is falling faster than 
seems possible. Things are lining up for 
the "New World Order" President Bush 
has been promising. What will this new 
order include? Good question. Don't you 
think it's ironic that President Bush has a 
90% approval rating, something previously 
unheard of. 

Things are just lining up for something 
really big to happen. And as Seventh-day 
Adventists, I think we have an inside track 
as to what will happen. 

Should you go out and bum your Ameri- 
can flag? 

I don't think so. God has blessed Amer- 
ica, and I sure hope He continues to. We 
have reason to be proud of our nation. I 
just suggest that we keep our eyes open to 
see just what is happjening in our nation 
and around us. 

Patriotism is good but I think we should 
at least be aware of where it might go. 


Light From the Rock 

Those Dirty Little 

"Our prayers are not being 
answered!" they cried. "We have 
fasted and you have not seen! We 
have afflicted our souls and you 
take no notice! Why is this 
happening? Why don't you lis- 

Can you identify with the above 
questions? Have you ever looked 
around and seen that person who 
always has a testimony about 
God's answers lo his prayers and 
thought. "Why him and not me? 
Why doesn't God answer my 
prayers?" The children of Israel 
were having the same problem. 
God gave them a message 
through Isaiah in Chapter 58. He 
said (vs. I ), "Tell my people their 
transgression, and the house of 
Jacob their sin." 

These are people with a prob- 

lem. They have sins. They are 
not right with God. But verse 
two seems to contradict. It says 
they seek after God. they delight 
to know and ask Him to show 
them His ways, and they love to 
approach Him in His temple. So 
what was their problem? 2 Kings 
17:9 gives usahinl. Itsays,"The 
children of Israel secretly did" 
things against the Lord that were 
not right. 

You see, the Israelites would 
go to church each week. They 
would sing the songs, read the 
antiphonal reading, listen lo the 
sermon, say the right things and 
do the right things. Then they 
would go home and worship other 
gods in the "high places" (2 Kings 
17:9-11, 19). The Israelites were 
getting their God, the God of all 

creation, mixed up with the pa- 
gan gods. The ancients believed 
the gods had local jurisdiction. If 
you were traveling during [hat 
time, you had better know which 
god was over the land you were 
in so you could worship him and 
be protected (2 Kings 17:24-27). 
The Israelites had this mentality. 
They would go lo the temple and 
worship God, and then just to 
cover all the bases, they would 
go home and worship other gods. 
It could probably be said of them 
as it was said of the Assyrians in 
verse 33. "They feared the Lord, 
yet served their own gods." 

We look at them and say, 
"Those dirly little Israelites, how 
could they do such a thing? How 
could they go to church, worship 
the true God and then come home 
and worship other gods?" But do 
you do the same thing? Do you 
go to church, sing the hymns, 
listen to the sermon, and maybe 
start off each day with a short 
prayer "to go" and then worship 
other gods? Do you goto church 
and then pigout at potluck and 
take a long nap when you don't 
need one? Do you say a prayer in 
the morning and then that night 
have sex with your boyfriend/ 
girifriend? Do you listen to the 
sermon and then watch things on 

TV that take you awav from 
God's presence? Do you sing the 
hymns and then listen to music 
that promotes the devil's dark 
worid? . . . "Those dirty little 
Israelites! How could they do 
such a thing?" Kind of strikes 
home, doesn't it? 

The Israelites did not trust God 
fully. They knew he was God of 
the temple, but they weren't so 
sure He was powerful enough to 
be god of the home. We know 
He is God of religion, but we are 
not so sure He is the God of 

don't trust Him enough to be- 
lieve that when we follow His 
plan, he will give us more ple£._ 
ure, excitement, joy, and fun then 
any other god can offer. 

The Israelites did not trust God. 
This was one of the reasons God 
could not answer their prayers. 
Do you doubt God? Do you 
worship other gods? If you do, 
you have no assurance that your 
prayers will be answered. James 
1:6-8 says they will not be an- 
swered. Christ loves us. He 
longs to come to us. He longs 
with His infinate love to answer 
our prayers. He yearns for us to 
fully enjoy the blessings of a

When Do Projects Like Our Church Lose Their Perspective? 

The "Arise and Build" pro- 
gram at the Collegedale SDA 
Church began in 1988. We all 
have observed the progress that 
has been made. The bricks 
have gone up one-by-one, the 
mud will dry up soon. The 
congregation has raised 
$982,682.10. The goal is more 
than $3 million. 

The motto on the "Arise and 
Build" brochure is "I will not 
sacrifice to the Lord my God 
offerings that cost me nothing," 
2 Samuel 24:24 (NIV). 

The needs outlined: I) Bring 
Sabbath School divisions under 
one roof, 2) Make space for 
adult Sabbath School classes, 3) 
Provide a place within the 
church for fellowship, 4) 
Increase office space, 5) Ex- 
pand the sanctuary platform. 
' "f. ''SI goes on to include 
additional restrooms. 

The solutions include space 
for 10 adult Sabbath School 
Classes, fellowship hall for 200 
ables. provision for five pas- 
ors and support staff, three

"So you also 
because the Son of Man will 
come at an hour when you do 
not expect him" (Matt. 24:44). 
Have you noticed what is going 
on in this world? All the 

things we have been taught 
since childhood are slowly 
unfolding before our eyes. We 
are too busy with committees, 
building funds, and everyday 
life. These visions have 
clouded our eyes- 

"in the light shining from the 
cross, true Christianity appears 
so pure and lovely that no 
external decorations can en- 
hance its true worth. It is the 
beauty of holiness, a meek and 
quiet spirit, which is of value 
with God" (The Great Contro- 
versy, pp. 219). 

"Brilliancy of style is not 
necessarily an index of pure, 
elevated thought. High concep- 
tions of art, delicate refinement 
of taste, often exist in minds 
that are earthly and sensual. 
They are often employed by 
Satan to lead men to forget the 
necessities of the soul, to lose 
sight of the future, immortal 
life..." (Ibid). 

My purpose is not to con- 
demn those associated with the 
building of the new addition. 
My purpose is to make you 
think about what truly matters 
in the church at this crucial 
time in earth's history. People 
matter. The spreading of the 
Good News matters. We 
WILL go to heaven without 
new Sabbath School rooms for

Tait Scores Nine in Blowout of Hunter 

By Timoihy Biirnll 

THE IMPRESSIVE play of Weston Tail 
allowed the team of Matchim to a 1 3-2 blow- 
out of Hunter in this issue's game of the 
week. Tait had a total of nine goals. 

In the early stages of the game. Hunter put 
on an relentless offensive attack, only to be 
denied each time down the court. The de- 
fense of Matchim didn't allow a goal the 
whole first half. 

Tait scored his the first goal seven minutes 
into the first half. 

Hunter had a couple of power-play oppor- 
tunities in the first half, but was unable to 
capitalize. In fact, Matchim was able to score 
with a man disadvantage during the second 
power- pi ay. 

Toward the end of the half, the offensive 
strength of Hunter seemed to disappear. 
Matchim took over and was the team doing 
t of the attacking. 

At the half, the s 

5 6-0, Matchim. 

Byron Corbett and Tait 
had both scored three 
goals a piece, thereby 
completing their hattricks. 

Hunter changed goalies 
to start the second half, 
hoping this might help 
their less than impressive 

The second half was 
much like the first, but this 
time. Hunter was able to 
score two back to back 
goals by Brian Simpson 
and Eric Indermuehle, 

Tait found most of his 
success by attacking the 
net from behind and 
swinging the puck to the 
front of the goal and slap- 
ping it in.

Oakwood Defeats BKT 75-69 

fly David Becknvnh 

BETWEEN THE loud stomping of feet and 
echoes of "OC" (OaXwood College), the 
screech of high tops was heard as the tip off 
started the Beta Kappa Tau's (BKT) basket- 
ball game versus Oakwood College. 

BKT started the gtme by winning the tip 
off. After a couple of minutes, Oakwood had 
scored the first points. BKT quickly re- 
sponded with Robert Bovell scoring the 
team's first points. As the first half pro- 
gressed, Oakwood look a commanding lead 
Bystander and BKT fan. Rich Roeske, said 
"The pressure defense is wearing our team 
down, but the boys are playing pretty good 
under the circumstances." 

This full court pressure defense led to a 22- 
5 run by Oakwood. BKT showed good hustle 
but ended the half trailing 45-24. Undaunted' 

BKT team member Sean Johnson said. "There 
is .still the possibility to win." 

During the team meeting at halftime, Kevin 
Pnde and Bovell emphasized breaking the 
press and running the play. This led to a 10- 
3 run m the first six minutes of the second 
half, making the score 48-34. 

Oakwood counteracted with five new play- 
ers who consistently delivered points. Al 
Hevener and Mack Ruff kept the BKT close 
and by 2:12. the score was 69-61, Oakwood. 

With less than two minutes to go, Oakwood 
closed the game down by running the clock 
out. The final score was 75-69, Oakwood. 

Sonya Johnson, an Oakwood student, por- 
trayed the friendly atmosphere following the 
game, saying, "We all enjoyed your com- 
pany, meeting other people, and the game."

Men's Club Sponsors 
Basketball Tournament 

Grand Prize Winners Receive Boom Box 

By Hank Krumholz 

THE TALGE Hall Men's Club 
recently started a sports event that 
may become an annual tradition. 
The first match of the Men's 
Club Basketball Tournament was 
held March 23 at the Talge Hall 
hoop in back. 

Student Dean of Men Mike Th- 
ompson first suggested the idea 
for a basketball tournament last 
year. Thompson wanted to have 
an event that Talge residents could 
actively participate in at their con- 

"I felt it would be really nice to 
have a sports activity to pull the 
guys in the dorm together," said 
Thompson. "I wanted it to be fun 
and convenient, too," he added. 

Tournament competition con- 
sists of several teams who sign 
up for matches as they are posted. 
Each team is made up of two 
members. The two-man tourna- 
ment is a single elimination event 
in which teams play until a score 
of seven is reached. The team 
scoring the best of two out of 
three in each match is the winner. 
Each match is played on a nine 
foot rim with curbs and desig- 
nated lines serving as official 

According to Thompson, the 
tournament will last about three 
to four weeks with a final four 
championship match to determine 
the grand prize winner. The grand 
prize winners will receive a dual 
cassette boom box. 

Thompson sees the two-man 
tournament as a fun and fulfilling 
event for Talge residents. "We're all out a sign-up sheet is available at the Talge 
there to have a good time," said Thompson. Hail front desk. Scheduled matches and 
"It is an exciting team activity for the dorm deadlines for sign-ups will be posted weekly, 
that I hope will continue next year."

Subject: Mountain Scaling 
Place: Racoon Mountain, TN 
Description: A 300 foot vertical climb up 
the sheer face of the mountain (using no 
ropes or safety lines!). 
What I liked: I liked the feeling of self 
reliance and the sensation of using every 
single muscle you have to stay on the 
mountain. Also, the scenery that you take m 
an the climb up is beautiful. 
What ! didn't lilte: i didn't like the un- 
stable surface of the mountain. Some rocks 
and loose boulders began to shake and fail 
, I climbed up. This can lead to BIG 
Suggestions: Use a safety rope (just in 

■ase). Go on a warm, sunny day and with an 

experienced climber. 
How to do it: Buy some climbing gloves, 

a mountain and climb.

Southern Student's MIA 
Cousins Found, Returning Home 

THE MORNING of Feb. 3 

came very early for Southern 
College student Rebecca Webb. 

She received a phone call from 
her grandmother saying her two 
cousins, former MIAs in the Gulf 
War, had been found. Capts.Eric 
and James Walters had been 
missing in action since Jan. 21. 
The phone call was greeted with 
tears and prayers of thanks. 

Webb's family still knows very 
little of what happened to the men 
while they were missing. They 
are very thankful they were found. 
"There was a gigantic block 
party, everyone was so thrilled 
about them being alive," said 

According to Webb, a funny 
incident happened when the two 

soldiers returned to their base in 
Saudi Arabia. She said their 
brother, Lt. Scott Walters, recalls 
James and 


wouldn't even say hello to their 
brother. All they wanted was 
food, a shower, and a warm bed, 
said Webb. 

James and Scott are on leave 

Reflecting back, Webb's fam- 
ily was obviously not happy about 
the war, but knew it was some- 
thing that had to be done. 

Webb isn't sure if her cousins' 
disapperance was worth the fear 
and anxiety her family went 
through. She believes that a 
p>erson always lives with a cer- 
tain amount of fear. However, 
theirs' was quickly forgotten 
when they saw her cousins' faces. 
Said Webb, "Prayer was the 
only thing that kept my family 
from falling apart completely. 
However, life is a lot more pre- 
cious at this point. I realize how 
really immortal we are."

Along the Promenade 

By E.O. Grundset 

.../w March 


» emerging from 
; the caverns of Hackman 
: Hall, I had a little chat 
I with Sherie Burke who 
master-minded and orchestrated 
the birthday kidnapping of Dr. 
Steve Nyirady on March 19. The 
actual perpetrators of the "hor- 
rendous dead" were Calvin Henry 
and Larry Poole, who drove the 
blindfolded Dr. N. around cam- 
1 such a way (back -tracking 
and going in circles) that the 
abductee became thoroughly dis- 
oriented. When they carried him 
back to Hackman, he was twirled 
a large office chair which made 
for a very dizzy Dr. N. who, up to 
that point, thought that he was 
;omeplace near the Spalding 
Elementary School gym — well, 
Happy Birthday, chocolate cake, 
ice cream, and an SC shirt to Mr. 

OK. let's sit at one of the round 
wrought-iron tables on the Stu- 
dent Center porch and check 
things out. Wonder of wonders, 
the campus clock is working 
again. Engineering departme 



1 the clock and fastened the 
hands on more securely so they 
don't wobble and move around 
strong, windy gales — some- 
times making the clock up to a 
half-hour off 

Danny Nyirady, who's going 
to be a part of a male quartette 
will tour throughout Thai- 
next school year, stopped 
by, as did Chris Port. Chris's 
' black "Eddie Bauer" back- 
pack looked pretty spiffy and was 

filled with matching i 
(calculator, highlighting pens, 
pocket dictionary, and money!). 
The fellows were joined by effer- 
vescent Sheila Bonjour (on a 
break from assisting in General 
Biology lab) and animated Susan 

Jean Johnson at another table 
was making out next year's 
schedule with the help of a "Do 
NOT Remove from Biology 
Dept" class schedule and bulle- 
tin. "March Madness" on this 
campus is not basketball champi- 
onship games but students meet- 
ing with their advisors to plan 
ahead — but first they have to sign 

The "rat-tat-tat" sounds were 
coming from one of the low brick 
walls extending along the side- 
walk in front of the Student 
Center. It seems as though the 
mortar holding the large rectan- 
gular slabs in place has deterio- 
rated; students have discovered 
this and were pushing the slabs 
off the walls! What to do? Well, 
Kevin Wright of Engineering, 
formerly belly-flop diving cham- 
pion, was removing the mortar 
with an electrical device and 
replacing it with a more poient 
binder. It turns out the tops of 
the walls of the library and 
Summerour Halls are in the same 
condition — except that students 
haven't figured out how to push 
those slabs off. thank goodness! 

Down by the fountain. Brad 
Emde and Danny Song were 
carrying on a spirited conversa- 
tion about their surviving the 

recent Genetics exam. They were 
joined by Lowel Hanson, who 
informed us that Valdosta, Ga., 
received nine inches of rain two 
weeks ago, and Donald Moore, 
who presented a little disserta- 
tion on seizures and other mal- 
adies! Thought processes keep 
flowing in many directions! 

This is the first day of Spring 
and the balmy breezes and 
Bradford pear trees attest to that. 
Other spring-like evidences are; 
flowering Vinca (a.k.a. Peri- 
winkle or Myrtle), yellow For- 
sythia bushes everywhere, and all 
die gorgeous daffodils by Brock 
Hall. A Great Blue Heron just 
flew over, as did about a 100 
robins. Photographer Debbie 
Suarez had pwsitioned Kathy Lin- 
derman behind one of the daffo- 
dil beds and was "firing away." 
A neat trick that some photogra- 
phers resort to is placing a beau- 

tiful girl in a flower bed, then 
when the pictures are mounted, 
dreaming up clever captions like. 
"Which daffodil is the prettiest?" 

The plaque announcing the 
completion of Brock and Wood 
Halls is now in place. It i 
tions that the buildings 
completed in 1983 and gives 
credit to 43 business, 1 1 founda- 
tions, and 39 individuals (at 
ally, this last group could be al- 
most doubled because several 
listings are "Mr. and Mrs."). 

Well, this fine day's walk i 
ending with the sight of Dr. 
Houck"s General Biology Lab 
students swarming back 
Hackman after hunting for 
mosses, fungi, and other botani- 
cal things. That in itself is surely 
proof that Spring is here to stay 
Along the Promenade and every- 
where else.

committed life in Him. But we harden our 
hearts and step out of his will. We go our 
own way. We cherish iniquity in our hearts 
and God's loving, longing hand of blessing. 
As the psalmest says, "If I regard iniquity in 
my heart, the Lord will not hear me" (Ps. 
66:18). We need a heart change. We need 
the softening, subduing love of Christ in our 
hearts to melt and mold into his likeness. We 
need His strength. 

Many of us have asked Christ into our lives. 
That is important, but there is more to it than 
just asking Him in. We are to put away the 
wrong and grasp hold of the right. "Turn 
back from your evil ways" {Ez 33:11,12). 
Recommit yourself to God. Worship Him 
only. Determine in your heart to put away 
[he evil and claim His strength to do it ( ICor 
10:13, Phil 4:13). Then your prayers will be 
answered. "Then you shall call, and the Lord 
will answer; You shall cry, and He will 
say, 'Here I am." (Is 58:9). I

Talge to 

be Made 



I planned for this summer will 

I eventually make the mens 

I dormitory a safer and health- 

r place to live, according to 

elen Durichek, associate 

ce-president of finance. 

The renovation project, 

which is set to begin May 28, 

will include the removal of 

asbestos in Talge Hall and the 

installation of a new fire alarm 

and security system, said 


Durichek said the asbestos, 
tiny glass fibers used for insu- 
lation and located in the halls, 
ceilings, and chapel, does not 
present a danger to students. 
"The asbestos was encapsu- 
lated several summers ago and 
is not in student rooms," she 
said. "It poses no health haz- 
ard and is not a cause for 

Chuck Lucas, director of 
plant services for SC, said the 
wiring of the alarm and secu- 
rity system makes the asbes- 
tos removal necessary. He said 
the wiring will run directly 
through the encapsulated ar- 
eas, making disturbance of the 
material inevitable. "When 
you start drilling and remod- 
eling around it [asbestos], then 
you have a problem," said 
Lucas. "We will have it re- 
moved, eliminating any dan-

The changes include fixing 
only grammatical errors in the 
lext of the Constitution. No 
policies will be affected by the

I resident Alex Bryan. 
Jl^he proposal was compiled 

By Jennifer Speichcr 

by Bryan and SA Finance Di- 
rectory Darin Stewart. Bryan 
presented the proposal before the 

senate at the March 27 meeting. 
TTie senate members voted on 
the issue at the April 10 meet- 
ing, but official changes cannot 
be made until passed by the 

students at the general assembly 
April 18. 

"Students will vote on the cos- 
metic changes presented to them 
at the assembly. The students 
will vote lo accept either the 
whole proposal or none at all. 
Because of this, it is important 
[hat the students understand that 
the changes are only grammati- 
cal, not involving policy," said

...In the World 

HAhmadi. KUWAIT— Underground water is increas- 
ingly surging inio Kuwait's uncapped oil wells, making 
3il more cosily and difficull to produce in the future. 
The damage, caused as underground water displaces oil 

unconlroHed rush upward at uncapped wells, is 
evident from the steam that can be seen alongside fires 

mc of the more than 500 oil well fires set by the 
Iraqis before they were expelled from the country by 
American-led forces. Kuwaiti oil experts say the dilu- 
tion of the oil is a sign of irreversible damage to the oil 
wells. They said they expect substantial reductions in 
Kuwait's capacity to pump oil from the ground over 
the years to come. The damage will significantly raise 
the cost of pumping the oil that can still be recovered. 

HMOSCOW— A fomier KGB general said in an 
interview that the Soviets helped plan the 1978 murder 
of a Bulgarian defector killed with a poison-tipped fake 
umbrella. Oleg Kalugin, a dissident and now a mem- 
ber of Parliament, was quoted as saying he was at a 
meeting in which the KGB decided to help Bulgarian 
Communists kill dissident Georgi Markov in London. 
KGB spokesman Lt. Gen. Leonid Shebarshin denied 
the account, calling it a "malicious invention," the 
newspaper said. 

...In the Nation 

:llowstone National Park, WY— Yellowstone Na- 
tional Park rangers killed three bison for disease re- 
search before a judge temporarily blocked them from 
killing 22 others. The hunt was halted by US District 
Judge George Revercomb in Washington, who issued a 
week-long temporary restraining order pending a hear- 
ing. Tlie kill was an attempt to determine how many 
Yellowstone bison arc infected with the contagious 
e brucellosis. The disease, which is spread by 
contact with body fluids, can cause domestic cattle to 
abort their calves. Attorney Katherine A. Meyer, repre- 
senting the Fund for Animals, contended that federal 
law bars killing animals in national parks except to 
protect human life. She said scientists can test for 
brucellosis by other means, such as collecting tissue 
and blood samples from living bison. 

d WASHINGTON— Hundreds of thousands of senior 
citizens are malnourished and sick because they can't 
get food or those who care for them aren't making sure 
they eat. It's not so much that older people require a 
special diet as theat they are blocked from getting food, 
said a panel of experts on nutrition and aging that is 
trying to make nutrition screening a routine part of 
medical examinations. Sometimes older people don't 
feel like eating when their tray is brought to them at 
the nursing home and it is taken away fully loaded. 
Sometimes medication causes toss of appetite or dental 
problems make eating unpleasant. Some seniors who 
ilone can't get to the grocery store regularly. A 
sizable number of older people go full days without 
eating anything. 

HNEW YORK— Baseball rolled out iu green carpet 
players began wowing fans with their bats as well 
as their bucks. The average major league baseball 
player cams an average annual salary of $880,000 or 
about $5,432 a game. The soaring price tags attached 
to the boys of summer have escalated their pay well 
beyond the salaries of the nation's chief executives. 
According to a new survey by Pearl Meyer & Partners, 
the CEOs who run the 100 largest companies received 
an average base salary of $826,000 in 1990, $54,000 
less than the average baseball player. Ford Motor's 
Harold Poling. CEO of the USA's third-largest com- 
pany, made a total of $1.2 million last year, less than 
10 Los Angeles Dodgers and nine Boston Red Sox.

Middle East Update 

Kurds Claiming Iraq 
Massacred an Entire Village 

Northern Iraq— A KURDISH 
rebel leader on Monday accused the 
Iraqi govemment of massacring the 
entire population of a village in order 
to terrorize Kurds into fleeing Iraq. 
The leader, Masoud Barzani, said 
2.000 to 3.000 people were killed in 
Kara Henjir, a village near the north- 
em oil center of Kirkuk, as part of 
the government offensive to recap- 
ture rebel-held Kurdish territory. 

"We still don't know the exact 
number of dead in the attack, said 
Barzani, leader of the Kurdistan 
Democratic Party. The report could 
not be independently confirmed. 

"This was a deliberate move to 
terrorize the rest of the people into 
fleeing the country," Barzani said 
of the reported killings. 

Hundreds of thousands of Kur- 
dish civilians, fearing govemment 
reprisals for the Kurdish uprising 
against Saddam Hussein, have fled 
into the mountains bordering Iran 
and Turkey. 

Some are making their way across, 
but many are trapped on the Iraqi 
side of the frontier. 

As Barzani spoke to reporters in 
the mountains north of the Gali Ali 
Beg gorge, about 30 miles northeast 
of Erbil, thousands in the region 
were abandoning their homes, be- 
ginning to trek toward Iran. 
The exodus came amid reports that 
the Iraqi amiy was approaching the 
rebel-held Erbil region. 

Until now. residents had felt rela- 
tively safe. Throughout the Kurds' 

long history of rebellion against the 
govemment, the Erbil region had been 
a stronghold of the Pesh Merga guerril- 

In the still of night in the r 
top town of Rawandiz, scores of men. 
women and children began the arduous 
30-mile journey to the Iranian border. 

Rebel officials told them there was 
no cause for fear, but people were so 
terrified by word that govemment troops 
might be drawing near that they set off 
barefoot in the night. 

In all. more than 250.000 Kurds were 
making iheir way through the Haj 
Omran pass to try I 

into Iran

Dr. Lynn Sauls, chairman of the

that each year is better than the 
last because of experience and 
student input. Sauls said more

with the results of the day, and 
with the guests. "People who are

The Campus 
...In Brief 

I Southern's physics department 
made several breakthroughs in its 
research project this spring break, 
according to department Chair- 
man Ray Hefferlin. Hefferlir 
traveled to Germany March 5 to 
meet with two scientists research- 
ing group theory. Group theory 
is the study of molecules whereby 
the scienrist strives to discover 
patterns in different properties of 
molecules. Scott Puckett, s 
physics major, initiated the trip 
after finding articles about peri- 
odic systems written by Dr. Alois 
Haas, an inorganic chemist from 
West Germany. Hefferlin found 
that Haas is involved in the s. 
research Southern is currently 
conducing, which is a break- 
through because only a handful 
of physicists diroughout the world 
are involved in group theory, 
according to Hefferlin. While ii 
Germany, both Hefferlin and 
Haas agreed to exchange infor- 
mation pertinent to their projects. 
"It was fantastic," said Hefferlin 
of his trip. 

The Heart and Soul of Lan- 
fe. Harris . a book written by SC 
English professor Helen Pyke, 
was published this winter by 
Review and Herald. This i 
story of an upwardly-mobile 
engineer, twice divorced, who 
realizes that while he grew up 
without knowing God, he's 
prepared to bring up his sons 
way. Another book by Pyke. The 
Heart Remembers , will be pub- 
lished by R&H later this year. 

Senior Recognition assembly 
111 be held today at 1 1 a.i ' 
the Collegedale Church. The 
speaker will be Richard Hallock, 
president of the Gulf Slates 
Conference. SC expects 313 
graduates this year. 

"Gently Leading," a seminar 

promote an awareness of the 

complexities of childhood sexual 

abuse, is planed for April 19-21 

Lynn Wood Hall. No children 

should attend this seminar. 

In the March 28 issue of the 
Accent, we printed an inaccuracy 
e story "A/C Thermostat 
Controls to be Placed in Both 
Dormitories." We said a cold 
spell during Christmas vacation 
1989 caused energy usage in 
the dorms to triple. However, 
while energy usage did go up a 
that time, it did not triple. Fur 
thermore, the new energy man

Lucas said a company will be 
hired to monitor the air for asbes- 

1 tos before and 

after the fibers 

"TTie removal 

handled care- 
fully and is 

lem." he said. 
The fire 
Durichek alarm and 

security sys- 
tem to be installed are a direct 
result of the September fire on 
the third floor of Talge. 

According to Lucas, the instal- 
lation is an effort to comply with 
guidelines set by the state fire 
marshall. "My main concern is 
io adhere to the life safety codes 
set so Talge residents and visi- 

u protected 

and safe in the dorm." he said. 

Talge dorm rooms currently 
have battery-powered smoke 
detectors. According to 
Durichek, the installation of new 
wired smoke detectors will elimi- 
nate any opportunities for tam- 
pering with them. 

The Talge Hall summer reno- 
vation will also include relocat- 
ing the weight room and redeco- 
rating the recreation room. 

Durichek said the weight room 
will be moved to where the bi- 
cycle storage room is now. ex- 
tending into the trunk room. She 
said the recreation room will be 
recarpeled, as well.

Despite the absence of its con- 
ductor, the orchestra is continu-

of Spain from May 7-23. 
Robertson feels it is important to 
honor the orchestra's contract 
with Mid-American Travel 
Agency, who scheduled the tour. 
The Southern College orchestra 
is the lead group of the six ama- 
teur and professional orchestras

Although several of the orches- 
tra's appointments have been 
cancelled due to Gilbert's ab- 
sence, the April 21 Dinner Con- 
cert in the SC cafeteria is still on. 
Robertson said the Symphony 
Guild requested that it go on as 
scheduled since over 90 percent 
of the tickets have been sold. 
Vakhtang Jordania, conductor of 
the Chattanooga Symphony Or- 
chestra, will be guest conductor 
for the Dinner Concert, said 

"For Mr. Gilbert's sake, we're 
trying to keep as much going as 
we can," said Robertson. "He 
has built a capable organization." 
He added that as department 
chairman, he is now responsible 
for the basic organization of the 
Spain tour. 

Professor of Music Bruce Ash- 
ton is currently acting as conduc- 
tor for rehearsals. Sahly said he 
is willing to help by finishing the 
fund-raising campaign. 

Robertson called the faculty's 
participation a "joint effort to see 
that the orchestra program re- 
mains successful until Mr. Gilbert 
returns to his position." |

Dear Friends: 

As of yesterday, 1 have officially re- 
gned as assisiant chaplain and director of 
C.A.R.E. Ministries. I have enjoyed my 
experience here at SC. but I feel that 

'n situations beyond my control have 
affected this decision. When I took this 
job, 1 had grand thoughts of helping stu- 
dents fulfill their needs here and I hope for 

, that this has been accomplished. 
Unfortunately. I have found that politics 
plays a significant part in my job and 
responsibilities. I. for one, do not want to 
become a politician. I feel that if my goal 

nission cannot be accomplished with a 
clear conscious, then I think the Lord will 

le somewhere where I can be of better

dedicated to making C.A.R.E. Ministries a

gained something valuable from religious 
activities. It is my prayer that one day we 
will sec each other again. Thank you 
again for your support and love. Farewell. 

Letter to the Editors 

Why Be Excused? 

Dear Editors: 

Senior privileges are wonderful, and I am 
very glad that Southern uses them. Having 
special parking, later curfews, and being able 
to turn in overnight leaves later than others is 
good. But 1 do not think anyone should be 
excused from a month's worth of worships. 
Why should the seniors be excused just 
because they are Seniors? 

Everyone needs that special time with God, 
even seniors. I've heard the excuses: "This

Looking Ahead 

h-Sil Covt 

Feeling the pressure? At times it seems 

sis. papers, projects, and exams will pile 
up and crush the life out of a hapless, 
unsuspecting college student. Last Thurs- 
day I felt just that way and God gave me 
this encouragement. 

During my devotions i read in Chapter 
32 of Jeremiah. Jeremiah was in prison. 
For years he had been prophesying and 
warning that Jerusalem would be taken 
■ and laid waste by the Chaldeans, 
r and over again his WEjning to repent 
been ignored. As a result the Chal- 
deans besieged the city. During this time 
God told Jeremiah to buy a piece of land. 
This seemed dumb. Jeremiah was in 
prison. He was lucky to have enough 
food, let alone to be alive to eat it. The 
enemy was outside. People inside wanted 

kill him and God tells him to buy land? 
Jeremiah obeyed. Then he prays. He ac- 
knowledges God's power and says, "You 
have said to me, O Lord God, 'Buy a 
field.' Yet the city has been given to the 
Chaldeans." Why God, will you explain? 
In answer, God gives him a beautiful 
promise, "I will gather them (the Israelites) 
out of alt the countries where I have driven 
them in My anger...! will bring them back 
to this place and I will be their God." He 
was telling Jeremiah to look ahead to the 
deliverance, these trials are small enough. 

As I sat God told me through this story, 
"Look to the deliverance." Look to that 

lime when I will gather my people from all 
the lands. Look to that time when the 
graves will open and you will see your 
Savior, your Lord and your God and He 
will say, 'Well done, good and faithful 
servant.' These trials are small enough. 
Rejoice my son in your deliverance!" Life 
may seem bleak now but God tells us to 
look unto our salvation. There is a better 
tomorrow. Those in Christ have this hope. 
They can look beyond the smudged, dirty 
glass of our present problems and see the 
bright light of hope shining through. But 
to you not in Christ — not following His 
way — that glass becomes opaque. You 
must worry about that test, that paper, that 
project, because all that you scrounge for 
in this life will be all you ever get. Let the 
hope of Christ. come into your life! You 
want that hope, don't you? Ask Him to be 
Lord of your life now. 

Correction: In the previous issue's "Light 
From the Rock," the sentences "If you do. 
you have no assurance that your prayer 
will be answered. James 1:6-8 says they 
will not be answered." It should have 
read, "If you do, you have no assurance 
that your prayers will be answered to their 
fullest extent." Also, the sentence "We 
cherish iniquity in our hearts and God s 
loving, longing hand of blessing" should 
have read, "We cherish iniquity in our 
hearts and restrain God's loving, longing 
hand of blessing/^ 

privilege gives us time to study"; "I don't gel 
anything out of worships anyway." But for 
some, dorm worship is the only time spent 
with God. 

Is it really that hard to spend 10 to 15 
minutes out of our busy schedule for God? If 
seniors need more time, let them skip assem- 

blies. They run much longer. If "skipping 
worships is a senior privilege, a pnvi e^J i 
skip communion with God, then should it be 
a privilege (a blessing, if you will) fo'' e^^Ij 
one to skip worships? Seniors aren t the omy 
students who have difficult schedules.

Gym Masters Dazzle Home Show Crowd 

ON SATURDAY and Sunday nighl, 
the Gym Masters entertained a full 
house. The annua! Home Show was 
the closing performance of the 1990- 
91 Gym Masters. 

The Gym Master's Home Show 
echoed the times we live in. Rick 
Mann hosted the program. His intro- 
duction began, "As always, the Gym 
Masters will start off their Home Show 
program honoring this great country 
of ours. With the Middle East crisis 
winding down, we would like to sa- 
lute those men and women in the 
armed forces who risked their lives. . 
. and gave their lives. . . to defend and 
protect the values that this country 
stands for." 

The Gym Masters acted out scenes 
from the recent Gulf Crisis. A giant 
American flag was unfurled as the 
backdrop. Large yellow balloons with 
ribbons lined the edge of the Hoor ^^^ ^^^ ^^^,^^^ ^^^^^ 

Rebecca Webb, a junior who saw 
the program twice said, "I liked the 
opening, but that's because of my military 
ties." An observer stated, "Times of war 
make you appreciate what you have." 

Mann said, "The Gym Masters do more 
than just put on a great gymnastics program. 
They also promote and incorporate a strong 
anti-drug message into their routine. . . on 
and off the mat." Ted Evans listed this aspect 
of their program as one of their most impor- 
tant community service projects. 

Daryl Cole, junior, said, "They had very 
few falls. They hit just about everything." 
The team performed multiple routines, in- 
cluding "The Omni", designed for the special 
performance at an Atlanta Hawks' game 
earlier in the year. 

earlier this year, 

which they performed at an Atlanta Hawks game 

spreading His candle flame to each member 
of the team. 

Evans said that the biggest highlight of his 
year was the spiritual blessing that the team 

A sponsorship program began this year. 
"We have been able to do more than we've 
done in the past," he said. A scholarship 
fund for needy Gym Masters has been incor- 
porated into the sponsorship program. 

According to Evans, the team is losing 
"close to half of its members" next year due 
to the large senior class in the program. 
Several Student Missionaries candidates are 
also leaving. He feels reassured with the 
incoming Freshman talent that he has ob- 
served in the surroundine academies. 

This was probably the wierdest gymnast 
"^"T to perform for Home Show. 

Evans commented on the crowd Saturdd> 
night's show is always a little different. The 
community people aren't as wired up as the 
College Days crowd. . . Sunday night's per- 
formance clipped right along. 

The program ended with a tribute to Jesus 

A skit was performed depicting Jesus

OUR FACULTY fitness profile highlights 
Dean Mathis of Talge Hall. When not work- 
ing in the men's donn, he is usually worlt- 
ing out. Actively participating in soflball, 
flagball, floor hockey, and volleyball, he 
manages to slay active throughout the year. 
His involvement in inlramurals is basi- 
cally for social reasons, rather than for con-

the students outside of a school environ- 
To maintain his conditioning, Mathis runs 
about 24 miles each week. "1 normally run 
anywhere from 6-8 miles four times a week, 
" he says. "To me running is very spiritual." 
Mathis takes very seriously the council of 
Ellen White in regard to our health. She 
says it is to be regarded on the same plane 
as our character. Mathis added. "Our char- 
acter is all we take to heaven." To him,

In the area of diet, he slated 
that he used to be a junk-food

Another aspect of a person's 
total health concems rest. He 
finds a short nap in the after- 
noon can significantly reduce 
stress and give you more energy 
for the rest of the day. "Even 10 
minutes in the afternoon, before 
4:00 p.m., can make a big dif- 
ference," stated Mathis. 

He wanted to share one thing 
that has made a big difference 
in his life. "Try to maintain a 
balance," he says. "You can't 
neglect your body." A well- 
balanced lifestyle is essential in 
getting the most out of life.

While Destiny has always

Moore said this focus is some-

Moore, "he -has in sight the true

After Moore chose Mann to be 
director for next year, Mann was 
overwhelmed. "Before I was 
asked to be director, I took Craig 
for granted," he said. It wasn't 
until after he accepted the job, 
when he began to see through the

all the responsibilities he would

dent missionaries spent the 
weekend of April 5-7 at Camp 
Alamisco. They were there to 
attend the annual Student Mis- 
sions Retreat. Eider TuiPittman 
was the guest speaker. 

Campus ministries director 
Kyle Robinson said that the pur- 
pose for this retreat was "tc 
bring the student missionaries 
together for a time of spiritual 
strenthening and to better pre- 
pare them for service." 

Friday evening, the future stu- 
dent missionaries took part in 
an agape feast and commi 
service. The emphasis of these 
events was service to others. 
The participants served each 
other the meal and washed each 
other's feet. 

Ruth Thomas, future missic 
ary to Yap, said the almosphi 
of spiritual bonding during the 
weekend was "incredible." 

Sabbath morning after church, 
former student missionaries 
gave several kinds of work- 
shops. In these classes, future 
student missionaries learned 
how to teach Bible classes and 
wimess through drama. They 
also became familiar with pre- 
paring and giving a sermon and 
were given ideas on different 
Bible games they could play. 

After the workshops, the stu- 
dent missionary hopefuls were 
given the chance to talk with 
others who had been where they 

ere going. 

Desiree' Paradis, who will be 

1 SM in Ebeye next year, was 
surprised to find out that her 
destination is known as the 

armpit of the Pacific." Paradis 

vas not detered by that at all. 
She said that the former student

end, I had never met so many 
people who knew what they

Steve Nyirady, who is headed 
for Thailand, said he enjoyed 
die weekend. "There were so 
many people with the same 
you: to witness in a 
foreign country. It was kind of 

years before, "God do something with me." 
And so he prayed again, "If you want to 
make me a garbage man, tell me, and I'll 
collect garbage for the rest of my life." 

Fifteen minutes after he said that prayer, 
there was a knock on his door. A student he 
didn't know asked him. to help him under- 
stand a poem. The poem was T.S. Eliot's 
"The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock." 
Haluska had never read il before, but after he

man, tell me, and I'll collect garbage 
for the rest of my life," he prayed. 

read it he understood it. "I looked at il and 
saw what it meant," says Haluska. 

He asked the student why he had come to 
him, an aviation major, for help with a poem. 
The student said it just seemed like a good 

Haluska told God that if he had brought 
this as a sign to help him decide what to do 
with his future, to keep them coming. 

"And He [God] kept them coming, about 
once every couple of days," says Haluska. "I 
didn't know much about grammar but all of 
a sudden I was able to understand it." 

After this experience, Haluska decided to 
pursue the idea of going into the area of 
English. Even though he didn't graduate 
with an English degree, someone suggested 
that he ought to go for a masters in it. Ha- 
luska thought that idea was insane. In 1974 
he graduated from Andrews with a masters in 

English. , . . .. 

While at Andrews he met his future wite, 
Marsha. She worked at the snack shop there 
and would serve him even though he came in 
just before closing time. "She was the only 
one nice to me and would make me cheese 
omelettes," he says. They were married m 
August of 1973 and now have two boys ages 
11 and 13. „ 

Haluska's first teachmg job was at oeor- 
gia-Cumberiand Academy, where he taught 
English and aviation. After teaching an ex- 
tension course from Southern at GCA, he 
joined the staff here at Southern full-time in 
1982 At that time he started to pursue his 
doctorate at the University of Tennessee in 
Knoxville, which he completed in 198/. 
When asked how long he plans to stay here, 
he said. "From now on. For as long as God 
wants me here, I'll stay." He and his wife 
are currently in the process of having a house 
built in Collegedale. 

When asked if he had anything he wanted 
to get across to the students here at Southern, 
he said he would tell them "God has a place 
for you. Don't delay, talk to Him about your 
future. You've got to let Him tell you what 
to do." 

Haluska says that all of the turning points 
in his life were the result of prayer. And 
though he didn't always want to do what God 
had planned for him, once he did it he saw 
that God's way was the best. 

Looking back over his life, full with God's 
leading, he says, "I absolutely would not have 
had it any other way." I 

have people see God through him. "Now this 
goal has been expanded into a directorship. 
Everything I do is not for myself, not for 
Destiny, and not for SC; it's for the Lord," he 

"As long as he spends a lot of time on his 
knees, he'll do well," said Moore. "We spend 
a lot of time praying." 

Mann said one unique thing about Destiny 
is that each director has had his own vision 
for the group. For example, Alan Martin, 
who was director for two years before Moore, 
revamped the administrative and organiza- 
tion side. Moore said his goal this year was 
to emphasize the ministry to high school stu- 
dents. Mann said his main emphasis will be 
to concentrate fully on the ministry side. 

"It's not as easy as it sounds," he said. 
"There's a lot more needed when you be- 
come a director. It's a real trick to combine 
the administrative side and the ministry. But 
if the emphasis is on God, then everything 
else will fall into place." 

Moore said he is sad to leave as Destiny 
director. He said Destiny is "more than just 
a traveling troupe, it's a family. I'm going to 
leave some great friends behind and a great 
ministry. But it was always be with me." 
Moore will be attending Andrews University 
next year to finish his degree in physical 

Moore said he's confident Mann will carry 
on the ministry focus of Destiny. "He knows 
what's expected of him." 

"I just hope I can do as good as Craig did." 
said Mann. |

Four Senior Music Majors Perform Recitals

End Is Near 

By Erich Stevens 

TAKE A moment to sniff the air 
around you. If you belong to a select 
group of students on campus, you 
should smell sompthing exciting and 
inviting. This sweet odor is none other 
than graduation, and it's been getting 
so strong lately we can almost taste it. 

Even though we've graduated twice 
before, once at the end of eighth grade 
and a second time at the end of high 
school, college graduation is sure to be 
much different.

of commencement as the beginning of

^Camp David. MD. — Religious leaders from a vari-

Sunday of a new $1 million non -denominational chapel 
at Camp David. The stone-and-wood chapel is a few

More that 150 people were present for the dedication

H Palm Beach, FL — This Edward Kennedy, a 38-year- 
old Palm Beach Post photographer who has managed 
to avoid covering the story, has found himself inextri-

West Palm Beach apartment, not a Palm Beach man-

name. But since a woman claimed she was raped by 
Sen. Edward Kennedy's nephew, William Kennedy 
Smith, this Kennedy has been getting calls all times of 
the day and night. He's the only Edward Kennedy in 
the local phone directory. People all over the country, 
thinking he's the scandal-dogged senator, call the offer 
their two cents' worth. He sighs, "My wife tried to 
tell some woman Ihe other day that the senator's

Southern Plans Celebrations 
for 100th Birthday 

NEXT SCHOOL year will be a 
year of excitement for Southern 
students and alumni alike, for SC 
will be celebrating its 100th birth- 
Many events are being planned 
for the centennial celebration. These 
events won't begin until Ihe Octo- 
ber Alumni weekend because the 
official centennial school year starts 
in October and ends in October of 

The Alumni office is responsible 
for the centennial plans. Various 
committees have also been working 
for over a year on ideas concerning 
different celebrations. 

According to Jim Ashlock, direc- 
tor of public relations and alumni, a 
history book is planned to help pro- 

mote the centennial. The book will 
contain pictures and historical facts of 
Southern. A limited number of books 
will be leather bound and numbered. 

Several other souvenirs are being 
planned, but all ideas cannot be revealed 
at this time. 

Student publications will also be part 
of the celebration. The Southern 
Memories. Southern Accent, and Joker 
are expected to have additional empha- 
sis on the centennial. Ashlock expects 
the centennial Memories to be an in- 
stant collector's item. 

A big emphasis during the centennial 
year will be the plans for the new sci- 
ence building. President Don Sahly 
hopes to have funds raised and a ground 
breaking ceremony for the buildmg by 
the end of next year. _

SC Improves Handicap Access 

handicapped students to feel like 
they have opportunities at South- 
em College. 

Durichek is Southem's vice- 
president for finance, and is 
overseeing several projects under- 
way to improve handicap access 
to campus facilities. 

Perhaps the most conspicuous 
of these projects is the one in 
progress at Summerour Hall. 
There a ramp is being built which 
will provide handicap access to 
the second floor from outside the 

building, according to Durichek. 
Improvements on nearby Indus- 
trial Drive will also provide for 
special parallel parking behind 

students can be closer 
building. The bathrooms will 
also be reconstructed for handi- 
cap use. Durichek said there 
will be no more bathrooms built 
on campus without handicap pro- 
visions. According to Durichek, 
the esdmated cost for this project 
is between $40,000 and $50,000. 
An unrelated job, that of turn- 

ing the home economics labs into 
classrooms and office space for 
the behavioral science and edu- 
cation departments, is another part 
of that total. The home econom- 
ics department was phased out of 
the Southern College curriculum 
almost two years ago. 

Another handicap access proj- 
ect in the plans is a similar ramp 
to be built for all levels of the 
proposed science complex, a four- 
storey building which will hold 
SC's science departments in the 
future. The complex will also 
have elevator service. Accord- 
ing to Durichek, one of the rea- 
sons behind starting plans for the 
complex stemmed from bad 
handicap access in the buildings 
which currently hold the sciences: 
Hackman and Daniells halls. 

SC student Tim Kroll, who is 
not at school this semester, is 
confined to a wheelchair because 
of muscular dystrophy. In his 
time al Southern, he has had 
several classes moved for him 
because of the impossibility of 
getting him into Hackman con- 

"Since he came here, a lot of 
projecis have been done on his 
behalf" said Tim's brother Pe- 
ter. Krqll's handicap "opened

...In Brief 

I A number of awards will be 
given to teachers and faculty i 
the Commencement service May 
5. Those being honored ai 
Distinguished Service Medallic 
Wayne VandeVere and Ray 
Hefferlin; Zapara Award of 
$1,000, Laura Nyirady, Larry 
Hanson, Ben McArthur; Sears 
and Roebuck Award for Teach- 
ing Excellence and Campus 
Leadership of $1,000, Wilma

to the English department). 

H Ad Council voted on April 10 
to continue to designate the s 
ice department as the lost and 
found department for the c 
pus. Anything found on 
campus by anyone should be 
taken immediately to that depart- 
ment where it will be held to be 
claimed by its owner. If 
claimed within one year from the 
time it was brought to the depart- 
ment, it will be donated to the 
Community Services Center. 

■ Credit will be available this 
summer to Southern students who 
enjoy digging. Andrews Univer- 
sity is offering a four-week course 
in archeology to be located at the 
historic homestead of Willia 
Miller, the New York fanner who 
came to the conclusion Christ 
would return in the early 1940s, 
and whose movement Adventists 
trace their history to. According 
to Randy Younker. director of die 
Institute of Archaelogy, the pri- 
mary purpose of the investiga- 
tion is to assist the efforts to 
restore the property to its mid- 
19th century appearance. It is 
hoped that the project will un- 
earth clues as to when the farm's 
buildings were consturcted and 
how they were used. In addition 
to excavation work, there will be 
ightly lectures on archaeologi- 
cal methodology and other top- 
The cost of the program is 
$400, and accomodations and 
food is a part of the price. The 
deadline to apply for the class is 
May 20. Students interested 
should see History department 
chairman Ben McArthur. 

I The kick-oif for the Science 
Center Centennial Campaign 
began with a dinner on April 1 5 
the cafeteria. Teachers and 
faculty came to see a drawing of 
the planned Science Center and 
to meet with the architect to ask 
questions. A brief description of 
the building and all it will offer 
also given. The Science 
Center will undergo construction 
when the needed $3.9 million is 
raised. Southern has raised $2.6 
million in pledges and cash so 
far. The administration hopes lo 
have all the fijnds raised and start 
building the center by the end of 
Southem's centennial in 199
