Talge Receives Face-Lift 

Talge Hall was sick. 

Look at the walls. Notice the halls? 

Three major projects were started during the 
summer which have resulted in obvious 
changes in the men's dorm; the removal of 
asbestos, and the installation of new fire alarm 
and security systems. 

During the summer sessions students in 
Talge were relocated into the Conference 
Center. Stan Hobbs, men's dean, listed this as 
one of the main inconveniences caused by the 
renovations. Senior Jim Smith spent the 
summer in the Conference Center, and said "I 
liked being there. 1 liked that part of the cam- 
pus better. But having to move back and forth 
was abig inconvenience. It was quite amess." 

The men moved back in on August 21. 

According to a previous Southern Accent 
article, the new fire alarm and security sys- 
tems are the direct result of a fire on the third 
floor of Talge Hall last September. The fire 
marshal insisted that new guidelines be fol- 
lowed immediately. 

"A lot of people walk in and can't believe 
it," Hobbs said. The men moved back into the 

dorm before everything was finished. Hobbs 
said that many of the students expected the 
rooms to be worse than they were. It was only 
the hallways and hall doors that were out-of- 
order. Hall ceilings were also being painted. 
The chapel is still out-of-order but Hobbs 
projects the finished work in three more weeks. 
This includes a new ceiling, carpet, and resto- 
ration of the pews. The men are using Lynn 
Wood Hall for worship services. 

"It's not a big deal," said Bryant Bracketl, a 
second semester freshman, "because the 
workers don't get in the way. It is worth the 
improvement. Walking to Lynn Wood Hall 
isn't bad. It is worth the small inconvenience 
for now." 

The weight room is not open. "Guys are 
sitting down there in hard-backed chairs watch- 
ing TV now. There are no games or weights," 
Hobbs says. A new weight room and recrea- 
tion center will be opening near the Thanks- 
giving/Christmas holidays. 

"Nothing is finished yet," Hobbs said, "the 
wiring still needs to be done." 

Talge Hall was sick but is recuperating. 

Admission Figures 
Surprise Faculty 

By Jennifer Jas 

At the start of the summer, the admissions 
department estimated there would be 159 fewer 
students this year than last. As registration 
drew closer, the estimate settled on a better- 
but-still-not-great 58 less. But after nearly 
two weeks of school, Southern is only down 
by six. 

"The registration turnout was a very, very 
pleasant surprise," said Dr. Ron Barrow, vice 
president of admissions and college relations. 
"I track very carefully the number of our 
academy graduates, and there were 50 fewer 
graduates in the Southern Union last year 
compared to the previous year. The Lord has 
really blessed us with much, much less [of a 
drop] than we had expected," Barrow said. 

Preliminary totals for this year add up to 
1 .528 students. "There is a possibility of two 
to three more wandering in," said Mary Elam. 
director of records, "but for all practical pur- 
poses, we're about even with last year." 

This was a surprise, Elam said, both be- 
cause of the fewer 199 1 high school graduates 
and the fact that Southern had a large graduat- 
ing class last year. "It seems to me that we just 
had more students who made their mind up at 
the last minute," Elam said. 

Many colleges did not receive the good 
news that Southern did, and are suffering from 
decreased numbers this year. The total num- 
ber of students graduating from high schools 
in 1991 was lower nationwide. 

Barbara Bush, 
Come on Down! 

By Doris Burdick 

The message is clear at Southern College: 
the First Lady will be welcome in May. 

Several weeks ago. Southern's president 
Dr. Don Sahly wrote to Mrs. Bush inviting her 
to speak for our Centennial Commencement 
on May 3. Her scheduling director responded 
that her official schedule is arranged only a 
few weeks in advance, and "we will be in 
touch with you closer to the date of your 

To aid in the decision and insure we're not 
forgotten, over 750 students and faculty took 
an extra moment to pen a personal invitation 
to the First Lady on a long banner.

tion of Mrs. Bush to speak at Wellesley Col-

Entire School Body Photo to Be Taken 

It hasn't been done here in 35 years, but 
during next Thursday's assembly, the entire 
school will pose for a group photo in front of 
Wright Hall. 

The idea originated from Mike Magursky, 
co-producer of Strawberry Festival, a multi- 
media slide presentation near the end of each 
school year. "I was working on a slide pres- 
entation for the alumni department," said Ma- 
gursky, "to celebrate our 100 year anniver- 
sary." He was looking through old photo- 
graphs when he found a picture of the entire 
student body. The last group photo he found 
dated back to 1956. 

Sherrie Piatt, journalism major, is in charge 
of the photography. She and several other 
photographers will be taking the picture on 

Thursday. "I will be up in the cherry picker, 
a machine with an arm and bucket, to take the 
picture," she said. 

The public relations department expressed 
a strong possibility that representatives from 
the local media will also be present. 

The Student Association has planned a 
lunch outside following the event. 

"It's an event. It hasn't happened in quite 
a few years. I'm not selfish. It's not my 
picture. It's the whole school's," Magursky 
said. He listed the yearbook, newspaper, and 
public relations department as the sources 
most interested in the picture. 

And for the Strawberry Festival? We'll 
find out in May. 

Blood Assurance hoped to draw at least 200 pints of blood during its annual blood 
drive in the student center. 

Although the pints aren't tallied yet. many students and community members 
donated some of their extra life-saving fluid on Sept 9 and 10, and in return got free 
refreshments and a (-shirt. Janelle Anderson (above) demonstrates the simplicity of 
donating. Southern's goal was to have between 300 and 400 donors participate. 

The only requirements were that a participant weigh at least 1 10 pounds, be at least 
17 years of age and bring current identification, and eat a good, high protein meal 
before donating. 

Blood Assurance will be here to collect more donations on Nov. 12 and 13. 

Laser Is Latest 

Weapon Against 


Fuzz-busters may not be useful any- 
more on a Tennessee highway. 

The Tennessee Highway Patrol began 
using a new high-tech weapon to foil speed- 
ers with radar detectors in August. The 
hand-held laser device can single out indi- 
vidual vehicles by emitting a narrow beam 
of light. The beam bounces off the vehicle, 
and in 0.3 seconds, the speed is displayed 
on the laser gun. The laser beam width is 
3.5 feet at 1,000 feet, meaning single ve- 
hicles can easily be targeted. 

"This new equipment is intended to save 
lives," Tennessee Safety Commissioner 
Robert Lawson said. "More than a third of 
all fatal crashes and nearly a fourth of 
injury accidents are caused by speeding." 

Tennessee troopers issued 25 1 ,26 1 tick- 
ets for speeding in 1990. Still, Lawson 
said, 1,176 lives were lost in Tennessee 
traffic accidents, many of them because of 

"Troopers who use the new technology 
to nab speeders will be doing so to protect 
the speeders themselves and every motor- 
ist on the highway," said Deputy Commis- 
sioner Col. Larry Wallace. 

The state of Tennessee was awarded a 
federal grant to purchase the laser guns.

"Run for the Border" 

CABL Party Saturday Night 

Students have been "Running 
for the Border" all week and will 
celebrate their accomplishments 
Saturday night. 

"Run for the Border" is a pro- 
gram put on by Collegiate Ad- 
ventists for Better Living (CABL) 
to "find out how physically fit 
Southern is," said Jon Steen, 
CABL director. Students are tal- 
lying their miles to see if they can, 
as a student body, walk the dis- 
tance from here to Mexico. 

A "Border" party to celebrate 

will be held Saturday, September 
14, 9 p.m., in lies P.E. Center. "It 
will be like a Mexican fair," said 
Steen. Booths will be set up, and 
Mariachi bands will serenade the 
crowd. Activities will include 
group games (male against fe- 
male), pinata smashing, eating, 
and contests with prizes. 

Those interested in adding their 
miles to the total can do so in the 
cafeteria at mealtimes. All are 
invited to attend the party.

"The national demographics 
indicate that until 1995 the num- 
ber of high school graduates will 
continue to decline. There's just 
not that many out there," Elam 
said. Theaveragenumberofhigh 
school graduates shot drastically 
downhill in 1989, and is not ex- 
pected to rise until 1994-95. 

Is Southern on target with the 
national statistics? "Absolutely," 
Barrow said. "Adventist colleges 
have demonstrated that our demo- 
graphics are parallel with the na- 
tional demographics." 

Of this year's 1,528 students. 
Southern counts 1,289 as Full 
Tim e Equ ivalency (FTE) students. 
The FTE is a generally accepted 
method of determining how many 
full-time students are enrolled, and 
is computed by adding up the total 
number of credit hours being taken 
by all students, and dividing by 

Southern's nursing department 
felt the biggest increase in new 
students. It gained 33 this year, 
for a total of 404. The second 
largest increase in the major de- 
partments was elementary educa- 
tion, which gained 1 1 students to 
total 100. 

Nursing by far attracts the larg- 
est number of students to South- 
ern. The business and office ad- 
ministration department is second 
in line with 289 students. Biology 
follows with 1 17, and religion is 
fourth with 114. 

Over one-third of Southern's 
students are from outside the 
Southern Union. 

Elam said the extra monetary 
boost the unexpected number of 
students brought will probably go 
for continued upkeep of the cam- 
pus, f 

"It's NO Joke!" 

Joker to Be Released Tuesday 

This Tuesday evening will not 
find many students in their rooms 

Joker editor Janene Burdick has 
extended an offer that most stu- 
dentscannotrefuse: "Come to the 
Joker party at 6:30 p.m. on the 
student center promenade for re- 
freshments, music and the hand- 
ing-out of Jokers" she invites. 

The Joker provides students 
with a helpful attraction and in- 
formation section. This includes 
find-a-ride, addresses, birthdays, 
restaurant guides and nearby en- 
tertainment shops, Burdick said. 

Also included in this year's 
edition is a 24-page color centen- 
nial section highlighting South- 
ern's campus. 

"The best way to find a man is 
to flip through the Joker" said 
Wendy Waters, sophomore nurs- 
ing student. Mug shots and per- 
sonal information such as each 
student's name, major and social 
status is listed. 

The Joker party furnishes the 
students with the one campus pub- 
lication that gets used throughout 
the school year, said Burdick. 


from p. I 

lege (Mass. ) at spring commence- 
ment there a year ago (June 1, 
1990), students encouraged her 
visit with hundreds of variations 
on the theme. One male student 
offered, "We'll take you to Taco 
Bell." Another opportunist sug- 
gested she bring him some choco- 
late chip cookies. A young lady 
named Millie thanked her for 
naming the First Dog after her. 

But mostly, they are notes of 
warmth, appreciation of Mrs. 
Bush's priorities, and expressions 
of Southern hospitality. Many 
students affirmed that they pray 
for Barbara Bush, and in some 
cases mentioned that they are 
praying she will come. 

Messages included a scatter- 
ing of other languages— Korean 
Chinese and Russian. About 4 
percent of students enrolled are 
residents of countries other than 
the United States. 

If students or faculty would 
like to add a message, the last 
chance (o sign the banner will be 
Tuesday, Sept. 17 and Thursday, 
Sept. 19. It will be available at 
noon in the cafeteria.

U se The SA ! 

By Daryl Cole 

For the past several years, I 
have seen students treat Stu- 
dent Association officers like 
they were jokes. Few students 
would add their input because 
they felt that the SA could do 
nothing to change Southern for 
the better. 

During SA retreat a few 
weeks ago, I spent some time 
with a group of people (includ- 
ing myself) who want to see 
changes made. And at the risk 
of sounding like a cliche, the 
SA officers are here to work for 
you! We're students too, and 
we want to improve Southern 
as much as possible. 

If you have suggestions on 
how to improve school poli- 
cies, SA functions, or other 
aspect of life at Southern, talk 
to an SA officer. We'll do our 
best to make each student com- 
fortable in this southeastern rain 

Obviously, we're not per- 
fect. And undoubtedly, we will 
mess up. Butwehave all agreed 
to work with our differences 
and to work with you to make a 
better SA. 

Now, I know this editorial 
sounds like someone should be 
humming the national anthem 
in the background, but take it 
seriously. The other SA offi- 
cers and I didn't run for these 
positions just because it looks 
good on a resume. We want to 
make a difference, but w 
your help. 


Why the New Furniture? 

Dear Editor: 

I am upset! Thatcher Hall's 
recent re-decorated lobby seems 
overly extravagant and unneces- 
sary. This especially frustrates 
me when I think of the increase in 
tuition and entrance fee I had to 
pay this fall. 

The furniture we had before 
was not falling apart. It was 
comfortable, cozy, and suited 
Thatcher residents and their visi- 
tors just fine. 

At first, I decided to believe 
that some "rich" person donated 
the money for the new carpet, 
furniture, and accessories. If so, 
the purchase was still a bad deci- 
sion. If we did have money, why 
wasn't itusedtocleanand/orrepair 
some of the bathrooms, buy more 
mattresses or carpet, paint the 
walls, or de-humidify the rooms? 

I believe that not only those 

who chose and purchased the 
furniture are at fault, but also the 
students who use or misuse, as the 
case may be, the lobby. In fact, 
one sofa has already been dam- 

Once I saw a group of obvi- 
ously hot, sweaty, and dirty ball 
players sitting on the sofa. After 
they left, I watched another stu- 
dentsitdown. Shequicklyjumped 
to her feet and exclaimed, "Yuck! 
This chair is wet!" 

Since the money has already 
been spent, we, as students, must 
take care of Thatcher's lobby. 
Because, who knows, we could 
end up with a new lobby next year 

Let this be a lesson. Future 

projects such as this should be 
evaluated more closely to ensure 
wise expenditures.

Give Me 

a Parking 


Dear Editor: 

As I proceeded through regis- 
tration two weeks ago I became 
quite disturbed when I reached 
the automobile registration table. 
Talge Hall I was anticipating to 
receive my much awaited "Senior 
Privilege" parking space. To my 
amazement security informed me 
that I would not have an assigned 
parking space but, rather, I would 
be assigned to the east parking lot 
where it is understood to be a 
senior parking free-for-all. 

Two topics concern me. First 
is the question... why no assigned 
spaces? I understand Thatcher 
residents do have assigned park- 
ing spaces, so it obviously is not a 
school-wide policy. Second, 
seniors also have a privilege al- 
lowing them to stay out until 1 
a.m., but if a senior exercises that 
privilege and comes into Talge 
parking after 1 1 :00 p.m., the best 
parking space he will find will be 
in the desolate scrap pile defining 
the edge of Talge Hall parking. 

I believe I speak on behalf of 
many concerned Talge Hall sen- 
iors who have paid their dues the 
past three years. All we ask is for 
justice and our parking spaces

Triathlon Lacks SC Participants 

— Editorial 

The 7th annual Southern 
College Triathlon began with a 

At precisely 8 a.m. last Sun- 
day, 48 swimmers turned calm 
Lake Cohutta Springs into a 
churning mass of swiftly mov- 
ing arms and legs, until 1/2 mile 
later they returned to shore. 

For some of them, their ath- 
letic cxerlion was over for the 
day. as the two other members 
of their team would take over 
the biking and running. But for 
the 37 individual triathletes. it 
had only just begun. They had 
yet to face an 18-mile bike race 
and a 4-mile run. 

This year's event was held at 
Cohuiia Springs Camp in Cran- 
dall, Georgia, on Sunday, Sep- 
tember 8. 

"We had good weather, no- 
body got hurt, and people 
showed up, so it was success- 
ful," said Phil Garver, chairman 
of Southern's HPER depart- 
ment. "It's a beautiful course, 
and the atmosphere between 
competitors was great." 

This year there were 37 indi- 
vidual triathletes (including a 59- 
year-old woman) and 1 1 relay 
teams of three people each, for a 
total of 70 participants. Five 
Southern College students com- 
peted individually: Jeremy Pet- 
tit, Eric O'Brien, John Negley, 
David Self and Shawn Servoss. 

Servoss won first place in the 16-19 age divi- lowed by second place 
sion. Twelve other Southern students com- with a time of 1:25:41. 
peted as members of a relay team. Next year the triathlon will be held several 

Collegedale Academy and Pisgah Acad- weeks later in the school year, because many 
emy each sent a team, but the majority of students don't feel they haveachance to train 
competitors are from the Chattanooga com- for it in time. Garver said, 
munity. "They tell us we're oneoftheeheap- 
est and reasonable triathalons," said Tanya 
Johnson, a wellness major and coordii 
the triathalon. 

Community members must pay a $25 fee. 
Alumni are charged $15, and academy stu- 
dents, Southern students and staff pay $10. 

Community wellness major Heather Wil- 
liams competed in the running third of a relay fe 
team. "It was scary," she said. "But I enjoyed II ^^ ' 
going by students and my family members 
and hearing them yell support. There were a 
lot of us in this torture thing together." 

Why don't more Southern students partii 
pate? "Thesad thing is that most of them di

With the pleasant thoughts of the 
summer behind us, we are now thrown 
violently back into the high stress world 
known as "studying". We all hate to hear 
the "S" word but it's a part of our lives 
once again. But don't despair. Right 
around that time of day when you have 
started to read the same paragraph for the 
fifth time there is a two or three hour 
stress relief period we call "Intramural s". 

Even if you don't think you are very 
athletic, it really doesn't matter. Most 
people are involved so that they can let 
off a little steam and forget studying for 
a short while. If for some reason you ab- 
solutely refuse to engage in sports, then 
come and socialize with the rest of the 
spectators. It's a good time to meet new 
people and just enjoy the atmosphere. 

The experience may not be quite as re- 
warding as the gazing at the beach. But 
then again, at least with intramurals there 
is a chance of getting picked up.

Southern Celebrates All Year Long 

Southern College's 100th birthday party 
will not be a big one-time bash, rather, every- 
thing throughout the year will have a centen- 
nial flavor, according to Dr. Jim Ashlock, 
director of aJumni and college relations. 

The official centennial logo, a teal green and 
burgundy celebratory display of the number 
"100" as if on a racetrack, will be seen in 
almost every area of student life: on the flags 
lining College Drive, writing pens, t-shirts, 
the Gym-Masters uniforms, in the Southern 
Memories, Southern Accent and the Joker, on 
large banners in campus buildings and on 
small ones on faculty desks. 

"We are celebrating the school yearof 1992," 
Ashlock said. "That's the emphasis of the 
centennial." He said the logo is to enhance 
recognition, and to keep it alive throughout 
the year. 

There will be at least three special events 
planned in conjunction with the centennial. A 
Centennial Golf Tournament will be held on 
October 25 during Homecoming Weekend, 
and is targeted toward alumni. There will also 
be a 10-day centennial bike tour in Holland 
during November, also catering to alumni. 
The third centennial event will be a banquet 
for college supporters, the community and 
business people to "better acquaint them with 
an understanding of Southern College and 
what it represents," Ashlock said. 

In addition, Ashlock said Collegedale's 
annual Fourth-of-July parade will be "focused 
around Southern's centennial." 

"I'm wide open for ideas on how we can 
better involve the current student body to

SA Mascot Is "Tragically Hip" 

By Gina Graham 

None of the officers remember where the 
idea originated, but this year the Student 
Association has a new member. He has green 
"skin." Dobber is his name. 

During registration students entered a name 
contest for the colorful dinosaur mascot of the 
1991-92SA. Rob Hunter, sophomore English 
major, came up with the name. "I don't know 
why I named him that," he said. "The name 
just popped into my head." Hunter received a 
green Southern College windbreaker from the 
Campus Shop as a prize. 

Dobber's debut was at the SA Welcome 
Back Party on August 3 1 . "We got a positive 
response after the Welcome Back Party," said 
Rob Fulbright, SA president. "Mike [Ma- 
gursky] even incorporated him in the slide 
show, he was animated on the screen." 
Magursky, Strawberry Festival co-producer, 
originally created the mascot. 

According to SA social vice president Krisi 
Clark, Dobber's costume was made by Lezlee 
Walters of Collegedale. The material is " . 
fuzzy green. You get a lot of hair in your 
mouth when you wear it. It is very hot!" Clark 
said. She would not state who wore the 
costume during the Welcome Back Party. 

Why a dinosaur? Magursky 
said "It's a creature of extinc- 
tion for the SA of distinction." 
He started out as an eagle, 
according to Magursky, and 
then a turtle, a squirrel ("ap- 
propriate around this campus") 
andahuman. Hisoriginal color 
was purple. "After a lengthy 
discussion with my co-work- 
ers at McKees." Magursky said, 
"we came up with the idea of a 
dinosaur. During breaks, I 
started sketching on napkins in 
the break room, Eight hours 
and several thousand Little 
Debbies later, Dobber was 

"We want something for the 
students to relate with SA," 
Fulbright said. "We want to 
have something a little light. 
SA has been political in the 
past. We want to lighten it up.

Pettibone, is "a pictorial story of 
Southern. It has lots of color 
pictures and is something that can 
stay on the coffee table as a proud

April 24 SMC Enrollment Up; 
328 Accepted to 149 Year Ago 

Reprinted from the Southern Accent, May 4, 1961 

The number of students thus 
far accepted for the 1961-62 
school year has exceeded that of 
the corresponding time last year. 
This will be Southern Mission- 
ary College's biggest year for 
enrollment thus far if the trend 
keeps up, according to a recent 
interview with Professor J.M. 
Ackerman, director of admis- 

Last April, 149 

As of the April 24 meeting of 
the admissions committee, 328 
students have been accepted. 
One hundred and twelve of this 
number are new students. By 
April '26 of last year, only 149 
had been accepted, 68 of that 
number being new students. 

One of the main reasons for 
this increase in enrollment, as 
seen by Professor Ackerman, is 
the new policy for dormitory 
room, apartment, and trailer 
space reservations. Students are 
not permitted to make these 
reservations for the next year 
unless they have been accepted 
by the admissions committee. 
To date there have been 230 
students accepted from the ac- 
ademies and 98 from high 

The fres&man class, with 1 23 
accepted thus far, is the largest, 
being closely followed by the 
sophomores. Nextyear'ssenior 
class will possibly be the largest 
graduating class yet, with 35 al- 
ready accepted. 

Most from Florida 

The students are coming from 
all parts of the United States and 
the globe. Portugal, Burma, 
Canada, and South America are 
already represented. The larg- 
est proportion are from the 
Southern Union. Floridahasthe 
highest number of acceptances, 
and the Kentucky-Tennessee 
conference is next. Many are 
coming from outside the South- 
em Union from the states of 
California, Missouri, Pennsyl- 
vania, Texas, Michigan, Ohio, 
Arizona, Louisiana and Arkan- 

Because the new women's 
residence hall will be ready by 
registration time, the college will 
be able to house more students. 
The men will occupy both of the 
present dormitories. Of the total 
number accepted thus far, 163 
are women students. Last year 
at this time total acceptances of 
women students numbered 74. 
Sixty village students have been 

1.0 GPA Necessary 
The admissions committee, 
in considering acceptances for 
this next year, has tried to raise 
the scholastic standards for ad- 
mission. Students with a grade- 
point average of less than 1.0, 
with few exceptions, were not 
accepted. Some acceptances are 
pending until the results of this 
semester's examinations. —

Up and Down the Stairs... 

This campus is actually located in two 
valleys and on a hill (running parallel to the 
valleys) in between. First we have the flat- 
tened area where the dormitories, gymna- 
sium, and Village Market plus Plaza are or- 
ganized. Then comes the "hill" where most of 
the "educational" buildings are found — well, 
Wright Hall sort of begins at the mall and 
meanders up to the promenade. But the Nurs- 
ingBldg., Library, Hackm an Hall, Lynn Wood 
Hall, Physics-Math Bldg. (DaniellsHall),So- 
Ju-Conian (Religion) Hall, and Brock Hall all 
extend along the brow of this hill. Then the 
industrial valley is on the other side of the hill. 
Industrial Rd. itself runs the full length of this 

Well, getting to these levels of buildings 
and everything else requires many sets of 
steps at various intervals. For example, if a 
coed wants to reach the promenade from 
Thatcher Hall, she must travel up 1 10 steps 
and then another 31 steps if she wanted to 
reach the Education Bldg. If you went from 
the parking lot begind Hackm an Hall up to the 
Education Bldg., that's 35 steps. So to make 

a one-way trip from Thatcher Hall to Ledford 
Hall a person would experience the delight of 
contending with 172 steps! 

To go from the end of the promenade (in the 
Brock Hall area) down to the sidewalks con- 
necting Brock and Mabel Wood Halls, you 
headdown21 quite steep steps. The handrails 
here are very shiny indicating that many stu- 
dents evidently slide down the handrails rather 
than hazarding the steps. It's a pity that there 
isn't some system for sliding back up to the 
promenade again, but if there were we wouldn't 
need the steps in the first place! 

The 21 steps leading from the promenade 
up to the front porch of Lynn Wood Hall are 
also rather steep. SC students should have 
very well developed leg muscles and no cardio- 
vascular problems! The men generally use the 
steps on the north side of Wright Hall. These 
are not difficult because scattered among the 
71 steps are 28 little landing places which 
makes the journey a little easier. In my survey 
of SC's steps (there are many more which 
haven ' t been mentioned) I discovered a secret 
set of steps just wide enough to accommodate 

By E.O. Grundset 

one person at a time. These ancient steps lead 
in a zig-zag way from the Lynn Wood parking 
lot down to the old boiler room ( wonder who 
ever used these steps — maybe boiler-room 
attendants who were in a hurry). 

I also found the newest set of steps pro- 
duced by our Engineering Dept. — 12 very 
nice concrete steps leading form a "no man's 
land" of gravel below the Religion Bldg. and 
ending high above Industrial Rd. — sort of a 
connection between noplace and nowhere 

So . . . we're hoping to visit along these 
steps this centennial school year and see what 
is stirring on campus each month — what we 
find out may have scholastic, social, or behav- 
ioral significance — or no significance at all. It 
may be exciting, mundane, romantic, silly, or 
even weird — an up and down chronicle of 
campus life. We'll take forays at times into 
different buildings located at various levels 
along the steps — the first report will be in the 
Sept. 26 issue of the Southern Accent and 
once a month thereafter.

Enrollment figures at Southern give an 
official head count of 1,532 for 1991-92. 

Though the actual head count is down by 
two, the full time equivalency (FTE) reached 
1,297. This is eight above last year's offi-

The relatively small decrease in students

Returning students number 912, up 24 
from last year. An additional 60 came back

Just about the time the

the majors, a contest with 
even more meaning is upon 
us. Not, I'm not talking 
about the contest to see who

comes together and inter-

up for all sorts of reasons, 
from actually playing to just 
avoiding curfew. 

It's a great way to spend

Thatcher Mascot Is Feline Fine 

Stray Cat Finds A Temporary Home On Thatcher's Front Porch

Shadow is the black cat who has become a 
permanent part of the Thatcher Hall porch 
decor. "This cat has taken it upon himself to

here, so there is no need for this cat," said 
Sharon Enge! dean of women. 

He arrived during fourth summer session, 
according to Assistant Dean of Women Kassie 
Krause. and first resided outside of the Con- 
ference Center. The men staying at the center 
took care of shadow, but he discovered 
Thatcher one day while taking a walk, and 
made himself at home. "This male knows that 
being seen with the ladies is better," added 

"Once this summer, Ron Qualley, dean of 
men, took Shadow home with him," said Toni 
Arbour, dean's assistant, "but the cat kept

Once again he awakens to the hustle of

his stomach begins to rumble. Rolling over, 
he looks at his cat dish. It has been refilled

one who loves and takes care of him. This 
morning it is liver flavored Nine Lives, much 
better than that vegetarian chicken sandwich a

Southern's Shopping Bag Lady 

One of Southern's Students Has an Unusual Hobby of Bag Collecting 

Southern Freshman Jacque Branson has an 
unusual inexpensive hobby of collecting a 
common item. She collects shopping bags. 

Branson believes that she has over 300 
bags. She stores them in boxes and in other 
bags, although she doesn't like keeping them 
in bags because they get tom and wrinkled. 
She has some of her favorites on her bedroom 

Branson has been collecting shopping bags 
seriously forat least fouryears. When she first 
began collecting, she did not know anyone 
else who collected them. She now knows 
several other people who have started since 

During her freshman year at Collegedale 
Academy, Branson went on an English trip to 
Boston. On this trip she decided to start 
collecting shopping bags. 

Several years before this trip, she remem- 

By Sherrie Plan 

bers thinking that a Brooks bag was unique- 
looking, so she kept it. Since then she has 
collected several of their bags. Branson said 
she "likes their bags because they change their 
design often." 

Branson first started by collecting fashion 
store bags, but has changed to almost any kind 
of bag. Her favorite bags to collect are the 
ones that have handles. 

"It may surprise you, but I 'm not that big in 
shopping," Branson said. She acquires most 
of the bags free of charge. "I'll just go in the 
store and ask them for a bag," she said. "Most 
of the time they'll give me one." 

One place she has trouble getting free bags 
is at department store perfume counters. "I 
love the perfume bags, but most of the time 
they want you to buy the perfume to get the 
bag," said Branson. 

Her most expensive bag is from i 

in Toronto, Canada. She paid$5.00 font. She 
has also bought several bags from Hallmark. 

Branson's smallest bags measure about 
one inch, and are Christmas tree ornaments 
for her small tree. 

Branson's parents, relatives, friends, and 
even people she doesn't know help her with 
her collection. "One day my aunt mentioned 
to one of her friends that I would like a 
shopping bag that she had," said Branson. 
"Ever since then my aunt's friend collects 
bags and sends them to me," 

Branson said she even used her bug c< >l lect- 
ing as a test to see how much her boyfriend 
liked her. She wanted asmall bag with IijhhIIl-. 
from a particular store and told him, "Dear. 
this is a true test. Please get me a bag." So he, 
and two of his friends, stood in a long line at 
the cashier to get her a bag from Victoria s

face and paws. Shadow observes 
each passerby, silently hoping for 
some affection. His wish comes 
true and he purrs happily. Angie 
Coffey, a dorm resident, has 
stopped to give Shadow some 
attention. "It's so nice to have a 
cat outside, just like back home. It 
gives the dorm that little bit of 
home away from home feeling," 
said Coffey. 

However, not all of Thatcher's 
ladies share her opinion. Martine 
Polycarpe says that she hates cats 
and feels that a cat has no place in 
front of the dorm because dormi- 
tory pets are against the rules. 
Raiza Dc Los Rios is worried about 
the situation growing. "It was 
okay when just Shadow was here, 
but now another cat has been 
dropped off to board at Thatcher, 
andit'safemale. A definite prob- 
lem can quickly arise. I don't 
want to have to wade my way 
through a bunch of cats to the 
front door," said De Los Rios. 

Security used to get rid of stray 
animals that adopted Southern 
College as their new home, ac- 
cording to Engel, but nothing has 
been done to find Shadow a new 
home. The deans of Thatcher 
have come up with a solution. 
"We will hold a drawing to deter- 
mine the lucky and permanent 
owner of Shadow," said Engel. 
"The owner will be responsible 
for feeding and taking care of the 
cat, which will live on the porch 
until the new owner can take him 

"The cat needs a permanent 
owner because we don't know 
who is feeding him now, and if 
that student quits feeding him he 
could starve," said Krause. 

Awakening from his mid-day 
nap. Shadow lies on the porch 
watching his owners come and 
go. "He's content to sit on the 
porch all day eating, sleeping, and 
being loved," said Krause. 

As night curfew approaches, 
several people pause to give 
Shadow a goodnight pat. Erica 
Howdeshell likes the fact that 
whenever she comes out of the 
dorm he's there. "It's nice to 
know that there is always a male 
waiting outside the front door," 
she said. Shawna Fulbrighl agrees. 
"He's the best looking male that 
waits on the porch of Thatcher." 



Prophecy Series Features 
Mrs. White's Grandson 

Reprinted from the Southern Accent, February 13, 1959 

Elder Arthur L. White, grand- 
son of Mrs. E. G. White, led out 
in the Spirit of Prophesy Em- 
phasis Week, on the campus of 
SMC, February 2 through 7. 

Elder White spoke at chapel 
services, evening worships and 
the 1 1 o'clock service Sabbath 
morning. The week was con- 
cluded Sabbath afternoon, Feb- 
ruary 7, with a Question and An- 
swer meeting in which Elder 
White answered many questions 
about the life, work and teach- 
ings of Mrs. E. G. White. 

Through the use of colored 
slides and vivid recollections of 
his grandmother, Elder White 
traced Mrs. White's pioneering 
life through her childhood in 
New England, her visits to Eu- 
rope and her word in Australia. 
He stated that she wrote fifty- 
three books and 

tides for ourdenominational pe- 
riodicals during her life. 

During the week exhibits dis- 
played E. G. White documents. 
early letters, manuscripts, dia- 
ries, early books, etc.. from the 
White vault at the General Con- 
ference office. These were also 
supplemented by rare volumes 
from the Arthur Daniells Me- 
morial Library. 

Some of the topics presented 
included: If There Be a Prophet 
Among You, The Prophetic Gift 
in Action, How We Got Our 
Doctrines, Relationship of the 
Spirit of Prophecy to the Bible, 
Walking in the Light. 

Elder White made strong ap- 
peals that we not be found guilty 
of neglecting this great blessint- 
of God to His remnant church, 
but that we make full use of the 
Spirit of prophecy writings. J 


Up and Down the Stairs... 

By E.O. Grundset 

When I was leaving Hackman Hall park- 
ing lot to begin this jaunt, I received the jolt 
of a lifetime— there it was, a car from West 
Virginia with, guess what?, the first three 
letters on the license plate were DNA! How 
absolutely appropriate that acar sporting the 
symbol for the "building blocks of life" 
should be parked behind the Biology Bldg! 
Whoeverowns that car — please don't throw 
that plate away when WV changes plates; 
give it to me and I'll frame it and have it 
placed in a revered spot! 

Well, let's head for the fountain area at 
the topof "Jacob's Ladder" (the men's stairs). 
There are about 50 goldfish in the pool; 
they're all sort of a reddish cast and aren't 
too big indicating that they haven't been in 
the pool too long. It's a very hot day — 
above 90° . In fact this is the hottest Septem- 
ber we've experienced in years according to 
the gushing TV meteorologists. It'salsothe 
noon hour so there aren't too many people 
around. Oh, here come three Talgeites strid- 
ing along (everyone's wearing T-shirts these 
days): Michael Hodges (NO in flamingo 
pink, and Robert Gettys (TN) and Micheal 
Hodges (NC) both in blue T-shirts. (BY the 
way, there are 22 Michael's at this school!) 
All three admitted that they didn't know 
exactly where they were going now! 

Farther down the steps, I met up with 
John Boskind (TN)— he's the SA parlia- 
mentarian, youknow— and Peter Kroll(NC) 
who was ecstatic about his new recyclable 
loose leaf notebook in which he was going 
to keep the sheet music he uses to accom- 

pany voice students. Both of these fellows 
were getting ready to take a nap (I always 
thought that was something students did in 
class !@) 

While I was resting on the rail-road-ties 
retaining wall, I startled Rhondalyne Reed 
(GA) who was very chic-looking in a paisley 
top, mustard-colored skirt andmatching head- 
band. She was on her way to lunch having just 
come from "keyboard" (not sure if that's 
pertaining to piano or computer). This is a 
good spot to observe the beginnings of au- 
tumn. All the tall yellow flowers in adjacent 
fields are Goldenrods, and the mauve ones are 
Joe-pye Weeds. Some trees are starting to 
turn: Dogwood, Sourwood, and Black Gum 
for example. The Crepe Myrtles are vigor- 
ously blooming and notice all the spiked 
maroon Celosia plants in the triangular flower 
bed where Camp Rd. intersects with Apison 
Pike. Another sure sign of autumn are all the 
swallows perched on the wires over by the 
playing fields — thousands of them in the late 
afternoons and evenings. 

Let's get out of this heat and visit the 
newly-decorated Talge Hall lobby. There's a 
shiny new purplish-maroon counter top and 
the smiling receptionist, Gina Bietz (TN) — 
her twin sister works in the Campus Shop but 
I still can't tell them apart — informed me that 
they've added several new pictures to the 
lobby including a fetching "winter street scene 
in Washington, DC" right behind the desk. 
Greg Hudson (TN) was doing something 
strange with a map and two "looking for 
Waldo" types Geoff Blomely (NC) and Kirk 

.In September 

Jacko (OH) accosted me with "Well, what 
are you doing here?" 

Wonder of wonders — I actually discov- 
ered two men's deans in the men's dorm: 
Ron Qualley (minus a hat this time) ex- 
changed pleasantries and Don Mathis pointed 
out that all the sagging wires near the top of 
the hall-ways will be covered with "decora- 
tive boxes." These wires are mostly coming 
from telephones or smoke detector devices. 
I'm sure that the founding fathers never in 
their wildest dreams would have thought 
that at some time every room in Talge and 
Thatcher would be equipped with a tele- 
phone! But such is the case in the "90s. (I'll 
report on the many renovations in Talge 
Hall some other month when I wander down 
this way.) 

I met Jim Green (TX) carrying some 
enormous speakers from his car — he doesn ' t 
want them to be stolen (does he carry them 
in every night?). When they're operating, 
I'm sure that he can produce quite a sound in 
hes vehicle. OK — cut across the circle, past 
the flag pole (which is supporting a huge 
Centennial Flag), up the sidewalk to Thatcher 
wherel encountered Vanessa Johnson (Ont.) 
and Marc Age (NC), a vision in green— they 
were all done for the day. Christine Pever- 
ine (FL). all in red, was on her way to work 
in the Biology Dept. 

I guess I'll follow her up "Rachel's Lad- 
der" (the women's stairs) but, hey, wait for 
me. . . "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up!" 
I must have lost my buzzer someplace up 
and down the stairs!

Southern Students 
Help The Homeless 

Gary Welch, security officer, gets information from Angie Coffey, sophomore, after her purse is stolen 

Thief Stalks Southern 

Sophomore Angela Coffey's purse was 
stolen from a Wright Hall office Monday. She 
was the sixth and most recent victim of a 
stolen purse or stolen purse contents incident 
in the past three weeks on Southern's campus. 

"An hour before, I had only 3 cents in my 
pocketbook," Coffey said. "I then cashed a 
check, and at the time it was taken, my pock- 
etbook had $ 1 30 in it." 

The string of purse-snatchings have oc- 
curred at lunchtime in offices across the 
camp Us . Coffey's purse was stolen from 
Wright Hall, and another purse was stolen 
from a Summerour Hall office. Two billfolds 
were lifted from purses in Herin Hall and 
Summerour Hall. Money was taken from a 
purse in Wright Hall, and a set of keys in a 
wallet-type clutch were stolen from a purse in 
Brock Hall. K 

The campus safety department believes 
that, for the most part, the thievery is the work 
ot one person. "It's probably being done by 
somebody who does not look out of place on 
campus," said safety director Dale Tyrrell. 
In other words, someone that people recog- 
nize and trust." 

Dr. Bill Wohlers, vice president for student 
servtces, said "The repetition of the incidents 
g'ves us initial concern that it may be the same 

Although Tyrrell said there are no sus- 
pects he said they have a few leads. "As yet, 
nobody has actually seen anybody with a 
stolen pocketbook leaving an office," he said, 
i tie satety department can put new locks on 

doors and do extra surveillance, but we really 
need the help of everyone on campus to keep 
theireyes open, "Tyrrell said. "Sooneror later 
someone will catch [hem." 

Within a day after the keys were stolen 
from a business administration faculty mem- 
ber's purse in Brock Hall, the keys were 
rendered useless by the safety department. 
All of the campus locks that the keys went to 
were changed. 

The pocketbook of Helen Sauls, associate 
professor of education, was lifted from her 
Summerour Hall office, and Tyrrell said this 
case appears to have been committed by an 
outsider. "There was a person in the building 
near the time of the incident who workers in 
the building did not recognize," Tyrrell said. 
He said the safety department and the Col- 
legedale Police Department are working on 
leads in that case. 

On the particular Tuesday Sauls purse was 
stolen, her office door was closed but not 
locked, and her purse was i n a desk drawer. "I 
normally lock my door, but I left it open that 
day for one hour so my husband could get in 
to wait for me after a meeting," Sauls said. 
Among the items in her Gucci purse, there was 
a Gucci glasses case, credit cards, a calculator 
and $150 cash. "I normally don't carry that 
much money," Sauls said. The money was 
leftover spending cash from a recent trip. 

"It just never occurred to me that someone 

here would steal," Sauls said. "I had not heard

"We're having a picnic in the park. Would 
you like to join us?" a young adult asks a 
homeless person. 

Every Sabbath afternoon, approximately 
20 students from Southern go to Miller Park in 
downtown Chattanooga, bearing gifts of food 
for the homeless people. Street Beat, a divi- 
sion of CARE's Campus Ministries, gives 
students a chance to help the homeless in the 

Students sign up during the week to attend 
Street Beat. Director Kathy Stewart said she 
had planned for only 10 students to go each 
week, but many more ask to go and she can't 
turn them down. 

When students arrive at Miller Park, some 
stay with the people, while others go through 
the streets of Chattanooga, finding homeless 
people and inviting them to eat and visit with 
the young people. 

Students often bring guitars, and invari- 
ably, says Stewart, one of the homeless people 
will be a musician. Stewart said they met one 
gentleman who played the harmonica and the 
guitar. He asked if they had a keyboard with 
them. They didn't, but Stewart saia they will 
start bringing one for him and others who wish 
to p'ay-

Students Will Have 
New Use For ID Cards 

New Security System In Dorms 
Will Require Use Of ID Cards 

v Kclh WaiilwH ( 

Dorm students can soon feel safer because 
of the new security system and fire alarms. 

Thatcher resident Brandy Goldman said 
she feels much better knowing not just anyone 
will be able to come into the dorm. The new 
security systems are not yet operational, but 
when they begin functioning, the dorm resi- 
dents will have a use for the strip on their ID 

After the doors are locked, students will be 
able to insert their card into a reader located at 
various entrances, and the doors will open. 
"This new system is one of the best," said 
director of security Dale Tyrell. "The college 
went much further than it had to." 


Utensils And Dishes Are Walking Away 

Silverware And Dishes Are Missing From The Cafeteria 

Do forks have feet? 

Apparently they do if they 
belong to the cafeteria. Close to 
$400 worth of silverware alone 
has disappeared from the prem- 
ises since school started. 

And between summer session 
and ihe first parr of the year, 
over half of the small salad 
plates, almost all of the small 
fruit bowls, and all but 50 large 
salad bowls have been taken. 

According to cafeteria offi- 
cials, new utensils and dishes 

must be purchased to replace 
the missing ones, causing food 
prices to go up. 

Alternatives to taking dishes 
are available. One can get a 
carry out, use styrofoam or plas- 
tic bowls, or put items in a paper 

know has 
any of these items, the cafeteria 
would appreciate getting them 
back. Food costs probably won't 
go down, but they might not go

Southern College is fulfill- 
ing this image through a new sci- 
ence center to be built where the 
old Tabernacle once stood. 

Over 2.6 million dollars have 
been raised towards funding of a 
new science center, according to 
Dr. Jack McClarty, head of South- 
em's development office. An 
additional $1.3 million is needed 
before construction can begin. 

Final planning and construc- 
tion will take approximately one 
year. The earliest possible date 
for completion is December of 

Southern was faced with two 


buildings. It could begin an ex- 
tensive remodelling project or 
build a new facility. 

The decision to build a new 
science center was made at the 
end of last year. The cost to reno- 
vate would have equaled or ex- 
ceeded the amount needed to build 
a new facility. Also, a new center 
could combine all sciences into 
one building. 

Architectural plans are still 
under consideration. Dr. Ray 

Hefferlin believes his department 
should be near the entrance. 
"Physics is the perfect science! 
You don't have to stay up all night 
like the astronomers, no chemis- 
try smell to contend with, and no 
dead animals." 

Meanwhile. Dr. Nyirady just 
wants to be on the third floor 
because the greenhouse and ani- 
mal cages will be on the roof. 
"We want to be uppermost; close 
to the animals and plants — close 

Most students remain cau- 
tiously optimistic about construc- 
tion of the new science center. 
"For the first time since the Pleis- 
tocene Era, Southern College will 

maybe," said freshman physics 
major Greg Camp. 

Southern College is working 
to ensure that the south end of 
campus is not damaged by the 
new facility. "Almost every tree 
will be saved," said McClarty. 

What will happen to Hack- 
man HallandDaniellsHall? Many 
options exist. They may be used 
by other smaller departments, as 
storage space, or as classrooms 
for overflow classes. The last 
option would be to tear them

about the previous wallets that had been taken. 
If I had been warned, I'd have carried my 
purse with me, or locked the door." 

Most of the incidents occurred between 1 1 
a.m. and 1 p.m., a time that most campus 
workers are at lunch. Tyrrell said the time 
element is the only specific similarity in the 

"People should report cases immediately 
to the safety department, as well as reporting 
anyone or anything suspicious," Tyrrell said. 
"We encourage everyone to look out for 
someone hanging around offices and hall- 
ways. Check on them and what they're doing, 
and let the safety department know, of course." 

Cliff Myers, former director of security at 
Southern and presently on the safety staff 
primarily as the lock-fixer, said he is familiar 
with this type of crime situation. "This hap- 
pened here several years ago," Myers said. 
"Usually, women put their purses on the floor 
under their desk, and everyone knows this. A 

person can fairly easily sit next to a teacher's 
desk to visit with them. If no one is around, he 
can reach down and get the wallet out of the 

Tyrrell's suggestion to faculty and students 
is to lock purses and other valuables in a 
drawer, or don't bring them to work at all. 

If an item is stolen, Tyrrell said to report it 
immediately to campus safety. He said it is a 
"personal decision" of his that victims of 
campus crime don't need to report to the 
Collegedale Police Department, because the 
campus safety department works in conjunc- 
tion with the Police. "Our reports suffice for 
insurance purposes," he said. 

As for Coffey, she said she's learned not to 
be so trusting, but she isn't bitter. "The Lord 
knows what I was going to use that money for, 
and the Lord will provide for me. We need to 
pray for that person," she said. Coffey said 
she was planning to use the $ 1 30 for a student 
trip. 50

Homeless, ^p 

The sack lunches that Street 
Beat passes out to the homeless 
are made from food donated by 
the students. Food can be pur- 
chased on ID cards and Street 
Beat collects it in the cafeteria 
during Friday lunch and supper. 

Stewart said that last week, a 
young man approached her and 
volunteered to buy $50 worth of 
food for the lunches. He did not 
eat in the cafeteria regularly and 
needed to use up the minimum 
charge on his bill. This is the first 
year of Street Beat's existence. 
Stewart began planning the pro- 
gram in March of this year. The 
program's participants have gone 
to Miller Park for the past few 
weeks. The first week, students 
brought 45 lunches, and 20 home- 
less people came. The second 
week, they brought 65 lunches, 
and 70 people came. 

Street Beat works with the 
Community Kitchen, helping 

them serve meals on Sundays. 
Workers at the Community 
Kitchen estimate that there are 
700 to 1000 homeless people in 
Chattanooga. TheKitchenisonly 
in contact with about 400 of them. 

The goal of Street Beat is to 
work with the homeless and help 
them out of their lifestyles. Only 
about 50% want to be helped, said 
Stewart. Streat Beat wants to help 
that 50% and convince the other 
50% that they need help. 

Stewart and the other Street 
Beat members hope to hold two 
revival meetings in Miller Park 
this year. They'd like a well- 
known minister to hold the meet- 
ings in the amphitheater at the 
park. Musical concerts are also 
being planned because the people 
enjoy music so much. 

"The homeless people need to 
feel like they're needed and ca- 
pable," says Stewart. "A lot of 
them have lost their self-esteem." 

Breakfast, Lunch, and sometimes Supper 




If the doors are open for a long 
period of time, the alarm will go 
off at the security office to let 
them know something is wrong. 

"The system is not being installed 
to keep tabs on students, but rather 
to insure their safety," said Tyrell. 
The fire alarm system is also a 
new addition to the dorms. "The 
fire alarms would definitely mini- 


mize loss of life 
immensely," said Tyrell!" When

Get A Date! 

In the beginning, God cre- 
ated the heavens and the earth. 
And during that week of crea- 
tion, He made man and woman. 

Now, when God made man 
and woman. He planned for 
them to be together. So, get to 
know each other — the opposite 
gender, that is. 

I've seen quite a few people 
going out on dates, but I've 
heard complaints that guys 
aren't asking the women out. I 
have something to say about 
that. It's 1992. It's perfectly 
proper for 

if it's 


That doesn 't let the men off, 
though. Southern has the most 
beautiful women out of all the 
colleges. (I'm serious. The 
fact that the previous sentence 
might make me look good is 
only a secondary reason for 

writing it.) And, this year, I 
think there's more beautiful 
women than any of the 12 — I 
mean four years I* ve been here. 

You might be saying, "Hey, 
I haven't seen Daryl out on 
many dates." OK, I haven't 
had many dates. Butlhavehad 
a few figs. And I have asked 
some women out.. .They didn't 
go with me, but I did ask them 
out. I think it might be more 
than a coincidence that they all 
had plans to walk their cows on 
those nights. 

Well, I haven't given up on 
dates, and neither should you 
(men AND women). Ask that 
special someone or just some- 
one out on a date. Saturday 
night's a good start, especially 
if your cash flow is only drip- 
ping. Pizza and a movie in the 
cil'etcna. or at least the movie. 
is FREE. 

Thanks, CARE! 

Dear Editor, 

I believe a word of thanks is in 
order for the spiritual leadership 
on our campus this year. The job 
which has already been done by 
our chaplain, Ken Rogers, and his 
staff, deserves our appreciation. I 
feel a real sense of commitment 
and purpose behind everything 
CARE ministries has done this 
year. From collegiate commitment 
weekend to the spiritual week of 
emphasis to the combined SA/ 
CARE vespers last Friday night, 
every program seems to be well- 
planned and designed to meet the 
students' needs. We should not 
take forgranted the "CARE" these 
people are showing us.

Why Thievery? 

Dear Editor, 

On Monday, October 7, my 
purse was taken from the Publica- 
tions office. This letter applies to 
that individual. It doesn't matter 
that all the contents and money 
have vanished. What matters is 
your soul, my friend! Why you 
feel it necessary to take my pos- 
sessions or anyone else's is not 
thequestion. Why you are here on 
a dedicated campus is something 
you need to consider. God's love 
creates value in a person. We are 
all sinners, but through our con- 
tinual striving to perfect our rela- 
tionship with God, we should not 
sin, but overcome. I can do all 
things through Christ which 
strengthens me. Please, I ask of 
you to confess yourself, not in the 
public eye, but to the omnipresent

Gym Masters Is Larger Than Ever 

This year, the Gym Masters. Southern's 
gymnastics team, is larger than ever. The 
number of students has jumped from 35 to 4 1 . 

According to Ted Evans, team director, the 
initial plan was toslim the team number down, 
but the talent was "extra good." A total of 80 
students came to try outs at the beginning of 
the school year. Try outs lasted two and a half 

Amy Durkin, a freshman from Mount Pis- 
gah Academy where she did gymnastics for 
two years, said, "I though that I had a 50/50 
chance to make the team." The competition 
did worry her some. Durkin was the girl's 
captain during her senior year at Pisgah. She 
made the team. 

"Right now, we are starting to get to know 
each other," said Evans. "With two-thirds of 
the gymnasts being new to the team, it's going 
to take a while to get organized." 

The Gym Masters are practicing an aver- 
age of 10 hours each week for their first show 
on October 26, at Alumni Homecoming, said 
Durkin. "We couldn't do the show tomorrow, 
but we'll be ready when the time comes," said 
Rick Hayes, one of the six captains of the 

Team captains do many things according to 
Hayes. They help with organization and moral. 
They also assist on different sections of rou- 
tines when Evans requests. The team captains 
are: KimCarle,StaceyChristman, Holly Jones, 
George Brown, Rick Hayes, and Chad Nash. 

According to Evans, there is no official title 
for the Gym Masters' type of tumbling. He 
explained it as a combination of three things;

Southern's Pond Will Get New Ducks

Cliff Myers, Sr. goes from watching over 
students as a security officer at Southern to 
watching over ducks at "Lake Collegedalc." 

This is how it happened. Last summer two 
white ducks showed up at the pond located 
where Apison Pike enters the campus. Soon 

eight more showed up — four females and s

with Myers and told him the problem, but one 
of the females was dead before anything could 
be done. 

This was when Myers took action. He did 
not like seeing the ducks hurt. He got two 
college students to help him catch the six 
males. Myers stood on one side of the culvert 
that goes under the road by the pond and the 
students chased the ducks into the other side 
and caught them. The ducks were then trans- 
ferred to Harrison Bay.

One highlight of the year that 
Evans shared is the trip to the 
Georgia State Prison in Walker 

County. "I don't want to say that 
they are a captive audience," he 
said, "but you won't get a better 
audience until the Home Show at 
the end of the year." 

Evans is excited about the year

ent kinds of ducks. He had to 
order at least 15 ducks. 

When they arrived, Myers kept 
the ducklings in his garage for 
two weeks. "They stayed in the 
garage until I couldn't stand the 
noise any longer," he said. He 
then built a cage for them in his 

"I thought I could let the babies 
out at the pond sooner," said 
Myers, but he is not disappointed. 
"I'm having a big time with them," 
he said. 

The ducks have become ac- 
quainted with Myers voice. 
Whenever he comes home all he 
has to do is ask, "How's my ba- 
bies?" and they will start peeping. 
He enjoys going in and feeding 
them lettuce by hand. "That is the 
only time they will let me touch 
them," he said. 

The ducks have more than 
tripled their size in three weeks. 
With their growth, Myers has been 

able to narrow it down as to what 
kinds of ducks he has. He be- 
lieves that he has five white Pe- 
kins, five brown Buffs, four Mal- 
lards, and one black Cayuga. 

Before Myers lets them go in 
two months he wants to catch the 
one remaining female duck at the 
pond and put her in with the ba- 
bies to see how they get along. "If 
she picks on them, I will let her go 
at Harrison Bay and just let the 
babies go in Collegedale," said 

Myers is going to build a shel- 
ter for the ducks under the weep- 
ing willow tree by the pond. "That 
way they will have somewhere to 
get away from the rain and out of 
the cold weather," Myers said. 

Myers said he isn't going to 
tear down the ducks cage in his 
backyard after he lets them loose.

Night Patrol On 
The Prowl 

Reprinted from the 

Accent, September IS, 1977 

Lightfooted, like back-woods 
trappers, they prowl through the 
night shadows thatblanketSMC, 
orcrouch in the deep shadows to 
watch and wait ... for crime to 
occur, for a car to be burglar- 
ized, for a building to be pil- 

They are guardians, protec- 
tors of our cars and campus- 
and their walkie talkies can help 
them call up the cavalry by link- 
ing them quickly to the Col- 
legedale Police Dept., should any 
real heavy criminal activity be 

Probably the school-funded 
night patrol is taken for granted 
by students, yet their service to 
us is essential for campus secu- 
rity, and even the security of the 
surrounding Collegedale area. 
For example, the God-fearing 
people of this community are 
concerned about drug traffic, but 
few of them realize that even the 
campus's night patrol occasion- 
ally becomes involved in inves- 
tigations to thwart the problem. 

Jack Kovalski, an SMC stu- 
dent and paid member of the pa- 
trol, related an incident to me of 
last spring . . . 

Following a lead that perhaps 
a narcotics deal might be "going 
down" in the student park, Jack, 
Dean Brunken, and Ted Web- 
ster surrounded the park and 
began to penetrate it on foot. 
Ordering walkie-talkie silence 
among themselves (so that the 
supposed dope dealers wouldn 't 
hear their approach) they slowly 
closed in; the anticipation of 
danger up ahead wound their 
nerves into tight coils. 

Then, abruptly, Pam Keele's 
voice shattered the night silence, 
as it erupted from the three talk- 
ies at full volume, to ask, "Are 
you boys scared outfhere?" (She 
herself, seated comforta- 
bly, safely at the Thatcher desk 
dispatch radio.) 

Anyway, as Jack explained it 

me, the sudden sound of her 

ice in that silent night, as they 
crept toward possible danger, 

; him the same sort of a start 

feels when someone walks 

up behind you and shouts BOO! 

He claims that his physical reac- 

Mi impromptu high jump, 

may have exceeded any on rec- 

Then Jack recounts the nighi 
he was touring the biology build- 
ing's lower level, flashlight in 
hand, when suddenly he encoun- 
tered a bobcat, fangs bared, paws 
audaciously raised, eyes agleem 
with ferocity. 

It was apparent from his ini- 
tial fear that the taxonomist had 
done superior work! 

And then there was the night 
(2:30 a.m.) that Jack and Dean 
Brunken found themselves in a 
foot chase, in heavy pursuit of a 
suspect who was fleeing the 
campus area. When they had at 
last detained the suspect, one of 
those classic moments of emba- 
rassment ensued; the suspect 
was a woman, in her 40's, who 
was merely indulging a whim to 
go jogging. 

Did you know that it is gen- 
eral procedure for the night pa- 
trol to stop and question anyone 
found wandering on the campus 
grounds after 10:30 p.m.? Mrs. 
Knittel, let 'em know you're 
coming in advance! 

More on the serious side, and 
in all fairness to Jack, his job is 
not a comedy, as it would seem. 
In this interview he displayed 
devotion and enthusiasm toward 
his night watchman's job, and 
he admitted frankly and openly 
that he was concerned about the 
image the night patrol projected 
to the public it serves. He ex- 
pressed fear that perhaps stu- 
dents have an incomplete un- 
derstanding of the role of the 
night patrol, and may refuse to 
recognize it as a legitimate ex- 
tension of campus law enforce- 
So far this year. Jack reports, 
security has been quiet — per- 
haps partly because last year a 
CB and car stereo theft ring was 
caught by the Collegedale and 
Hamilton County Police. This 
ring could hit six cars in broad 

Sounding ebullient and opti- 
mistic. Jack contended that with 
the higher quality caliber of 
young people that are attending 
SMC this year, most problems 
of theft will be external. 

The night patrol— they don i 
carry guns, but they still serve 
you and me. Their principal 
tools are their eyes and their 
ears, and sometimes swift legs. 
So remember . . . 10:30!

WSMC Is Celebrating 

Radio station FM 90.5 WSMC has three 
reasons to celebrate. 

One reason is for being a finalist for a 
prestigious award, another is for its 30th birth- 
day, and the third is for surpassing its goal of 
$60,000 in its recent fund drive. The station 
has raised $66,450 so far, and money is still 
coming in. 

According to development director Jeff 
Lemon, WSMC has recently been one of 46 
radio stations across the nation to be a finalist 
for the Crystal Award for community serv- 
ices. The National Association of Broadcast- 
ers chose which stations deserve to be singled 
out for their efforts in providing quality com- 
munity services. 

WSMC was the only station in Tennessee 
to make it to the final round. Lemon remarked 
that this is "an achievement in itself." 

Another achievement for WSMC is 30 
years on the airwaves. In the fall of 1961, 
WSMC started out in the second floor of Lynn 
Wood Hall on Southern's campus as a reli- 
gious broadcasting station. 

The station is now located on the bottom 
floor of Brock Hall and ils format is classical 

SA Fall Festival 
Will Be a 'Treat' 

> y.-^/.'-yioi/u 

Trick or Treat? 

"Definitely a treat!" said Krisi Clark, SA 
Social Vice-President. 

The annual SA Fall Festival begins on 
Wednesday, Oct. 30. with the Festival Dinner 
on the promenade at 5 p.m. "There will also 
be a pumpkin carving contest to create the fall 
mood," said Clark. Twenty pumpkins will be 
provided by the SA for students to carve, and 
a prize will be awarded to the best pumpkin. 

Fall Festival will end with a bang, or a boo, 
at Fillmans* barn. Transportation to the barn 
will leave at 7 p.m. in front of Wright Hall on 
Oct. 31, the party begins at 7:30. "Dress 
daringly or be the real you," said Krisi Clark. 
"Creativity is the key word to remember when 
preparing your costume. Let your true colors 
shine through." Six general prizes and one 
grand prize will be awarded in cash to the 
winners of the most crej ' 

music with news. It is a 100,000 watt station 
with a 90 mile radius, said Lemon. 

General manager Doug Walter remarked 
that the station has come a long way over the 
years. "The one thing that strikes me about the 
history of WSMC is that we grew from a little 
school station to a highly respected public 
relations tool for the college and local arts 
organizations," he said. 

According to Lemon, WSMC has 10,000 
to 15,000 people listening in any 15 minute 
period during Morning Edition and All Things 
Considered, two radio news magazines from 
National Public Radio (NPR). 

The station also has original programming 
like Classics by Request and a new program 
called the Chattanooga Nature Center Earth 
Calendar which informs listeners of events 
concerning regional environmental issues. 

Tocelebrate its 30th year, WSMC is throw- 
ing a birthday party that will be a public event 
held Thursday, 7:30 p.m., at Hunter Museum, 
said Lemon. Robert Siegel, co-host of All 
Things Considered, will be the guest speaker. 
He will also speak for Southern's Thursday

Southern Promotes Corporate Wellness 

"Corporate Wei Iness is a com- 
binalion of education and an in- 
centive to get people to live a 
healthy lifestyle," said Phil 
Garver, director of the Well Fit- 
ness Program for Southern Col- 
Icuc employees. 

Well Fitness, which started in 
1988, is part of the corporate 
wellness program at Southern. 
The program evolved because of 
the need to cut back on health cost 
in this institution. 

"To control cost is the reason 
my department participates in [his 
program." said Helen Durichek, 
Associate Vice President for Fi- 
nance. The college has saved 
thousands of dollars in the past 
four years, which includes about 
$40,000 a year on health insur- 
ance, she said. 

The program's fourmajor goals 

• Increase the level of employee 
participation in personal lifestyle 
patterns that help to improve indi- 
vidual and family quality of life. 

•Reduce the incidence of pre- 
ventable illness, accidents, and 

•Lower and maintain college 
employed/beneficiary healthcare 

•Establish Well Fitness as a 

model for Adventist 

ol higher learning. 

"Everybody gains from the 
Well Fitness program," said 
Garver. "The college gets more 
productivity from the employees. 
and the employees feel as if the 
administration cares about them. 
If the teachers feel good, they will 
do a better job teaching, and the 
students will be happier which 
will enhance student-teacher re- 

Every year there is an assess- 
mcni program of the college em- 
ployees to assess ihe general state 
of health among each employee. 
Dr. Charles Knapp. the program 
consultant, comes to counsel the 
faculty and give health fitness 
appraisals. This year's report 
came out on Oct. 6. 

A student intern assists in the 
Wellness Program every year. 
This year's intern is Tanya 
Johnson, junior wellness manage- 
ment major. Johnson is the editor 
of the Wellness Fitness Newslet- 
ter. "Being involved with the 
Wellness Program keeps me aware 
of a healthier way to live," said 
Johnson. "With the material and 
knowledge available today, I 
would be crazy not to strive for a 
healthier lifestyle."

Heather Brannan, sophomore history major, horses around. 

Southern Has an E questrian 

y Arthur Chamberlain 

Most students used mid-term 
break to relax and catch up on 
some long overdue sleep. But not 
Heather Brannan. 

Brannan, a sophomore history 
major, competed in the U.S. 
Equestrian Nationals Oct. 19-26 
in Albuquerque, NM. 

"I've been riding horses all of 
my life," said Brannan. "But 
professionally, I've been riding 
for about five years." She com- 
peted in the Hunter Pleasure and 
ShowHackpaitems. Theseevents 
mainly consist of the horse and 
rider jumping over various ob- 

Success has followed Brannan 
throughout her equestrian career. 
In 1989, she was reserve cham- 
pion in the Southeast Regional. 
She has qualified for the nationals 
each of the last four years but has 
been unable to attend because of 
her conviction to the Sabbath. 

Brannan finished in the top five 
of two categories this year and 
finally has an opportunity to 
compete due to a schedule that 
leaves Sabbath free. 

"Equestrian sports do not have 

a precise time structure as other 
sports do," said Brannan. All 
classes will not end on Friday 
night. The minutes tick away and 
finally I have to withdraw." 

Sometimes she gets discour- 
aged. "On those cold winter days 
when it's raining and the horse is 
ajerk, you wonder if it's worth it," 
Brannan said. "It's times like 
these I think of my parents and 
how proud of me they are and I 
keep going." 

Training keeps Brannan busy 
much of the time. "It takes two 
hours average per day for train- 
ing," said Brannan. " Trying to 
keep up with homework and prac- 
tice is a real challenge." 

Brannan has done well despite 
the fact her horse has never been 
professionally trained. She at- 
tributes this to hard work and help 
from her parents. 

What motivates her to put in all 
the extra hours in practice? "I 
enjoy developing a relationship. 
and intimately knowing how the 
horse will respond. It's the great- 
est feeling in the world when I can 
feel what he's going to do."

WSMC invited Siegel, ,o-

It's Raining 
Cats and Dogs! 

It's raining cats and dogs at 
Thatcher Hall. Literally. 

I've been untieing lately thai 
I have to step over more ani- 
mals on my way into Thatcher. 
What is this? Wild Kingdom? I 
know it usually rains a lot in 
Happy Valley, but Thatcher 
isn't Noah's Ark. I've also 
noticed that I sometimes get the 
overwhelming feeling to start 
singing "Bom Free" every time 
I go outside. 

Where are these freeloaders 
coming from? And why are 
they being encouraged with food 

If I had known dogs were al- 
lowed tolive on campusl would 
have brought mine. She would 
have fit in nicely and gotten a 

lot of attention and free food. 

With the dog some call Rusty. 
1 feel compelled every lime I pass 
him to go up closer to make sure 
that he is, in fact, still breathing, 
None of the animals appear very 
frisky or have that Alpo Glow. 
Also, the cats and the dogs all 
seem to get along, or maybe they 
are just too lazy to chase one 

In my opinion, if we are going 
to have animals lounging around 
the place they should at least be 
expensive animals to keep up the 
Southern tradition of the more 
expensive the better. Expensive 
and beautiful animals sitting on 
Thatcher porch would set the lone 
for the new and overly expensive 

Anothersuggesiion I have is. 
instead ol'hreakmg the peaceful 
Southern atmosphere with a 
bunch of lawn mowers, why 
don't we gel some goals and 
sheep lo take care of (he grass'.' 
They would be a lot cheaper, 
quieler, better for the environ- 
ment because they wouldn't 
bum fuel, and they would add to 
the down-home atmosphere. 

Maybe to raise money for the 
new science building we could 
start a petting zoo. No, wait, 
maybe that would be too tacky 
(not to mention messy). 

Well, if this animal migra- 
tion trend doesn't stop soon, 
maybe in lime for Christmas we 
will have a partridge in a pear

Letters to the Editor 

What's Wrong with Tom Key? 

Dear Editor, 

I talked with Tom Key after his 

performance of "Screwtape in 
Person" and he told me of a situ- 
ation which I Find quite disturb- 
ing. Apparently the controversy 
aroused by the appearance of C.S. 
Lewis* material on campus had 
caused several faculty and stu- 
dents to unofficially ask him not 
to come. This conduct, I feel, is a 
shameful step backwards for all 
of Southern College: its faculty, 
every one of its students, and the 
community that supports it. 

The controversy that sur- 
rounded Key's performance was 
not limited to the behind-the- 
scenes jockeying Key mentioned 
to me. It was forced upon many of 
us hy people who jumped out from 
behind trees after church and as- 
sembly to hand us flyers branding 
Lewis as an occultist and mis- 
guided apoloeisl for the Christian 

We, the students of Southern 
College, are the future of Ad- 
venlism, destined to lead it into 
the 21st Century. Who are these 
"defenders of the faith" trying to 
protect by discouraging our expo- 
sure lo Christian philosophers such 
as Lewis? The best Christian is 
the informed Christian whoknows 
how to think for himself and can 
accept relevant thoughts on his 
Christianity from sources outside 
Adventism; not one who puts his 

hand over his ears and screams so 
he won't hear anything pre-la- 
beled as occultist or indecent by 
people who themselves have their 
hands over their ears and eyes as 

Key also mentioned the heavy 
atmosphere this controversy 
brought to his performance. I felt 
it too. The scrutiny was good, 
however, for it caused the audi- 
ence to really think about what 
was said and analyze its meaning 
for their own theologies. But was 
it really fair, considering these 
same people often accept the per- 
formances given in church every 
Sabbath without asecond thought, 
even though they are given by 
theological apologists of much less 
reknown than Lewis? 

Do we really realize our awe- 
some responsibility for leading 
this great church into the next 
millennium? This faculty, this 
student body and this community 
can only live up to this task by 
stepping forward with open ears 
and open minds. Satan cannot 
recruit an observant, thinking 
Christian. Let's not push Lewis' 
apologies of Tom Key's perform- 
ance away. God will give us dis- 
cernment to find the Truth for 
ourselves and with this Truth to 
carry His important work to its

Why No Little 
Debbie Snacks? 

Dear Editor: 

Why doesn't Southern College 
carry Little Debbie Snacks " 
food areas on campus, consider- 
ing Mckee's has done so much foi 
this school? Why don't wt 
port a company that has been sup- 
porting us for so long?

Why Is Talge Still Under Construction? 

Dear Editor: 

I am very grateful to the Lord 
for providing the opportunity for 
me to attend Southern College. 
When I arrived on campus, I was 
told by the deans of Talge Hall 
about the inconveniences to ex- 
pect due to the face lift the dorm 
was in the process of getting. I 
didn't mind this too much, espe- 
cially when I found out the bene- 
fits thai were being provided or 

Now, a month and a half later, 
I am no longer disillusioned. 
Wires run the lengths of the hall- 
ways, signs of the construction 
workers are no longer present, 
and a "new and improved" fire 
alarm system that doesn't func- 
tion properly speak highly of 
broken promises and unmet dcad- 

What had at first been idenli- 

Dear Editor: 

Where is the water coming 
from? Water is used for washing 
clothes, cars, faces, exteriors of 
thehuman anatomy and, yes, even 
cafeteria trays. Do you not dry off 
your body when completing your 
shower, do you not dry off your 
cars after they have been washed, 

prominently by our climb up 
Jacob's ladder every evening for 
worship, and the recent malfunc- 
tion of the fire alarm system- — 
after midnight!!! 

The fire alarm is seemingly 
typical of things around here. It 
doesn't work properly, and no- 
body knows how to work it. One 
night, my roommate and I were 
kept awake all night by the alarm 
going off in our room every twenty 

Why Are the Cafeteria Trays Wet? 

and do you not dry clothes after kins that are being wasted be- 

they have been cleaned? My cause of having to get more than 

question is WHY ARE THE you need simply to make up for 

CAFETERIA TRAYS WET? the ones that get wet on the bot- 

Why must I come into the cafe torn. Anotherproblem arises when 

only to find soggy trays? This your tray touches your garment 

causes quite an inconvenience, duetocrowdedlinesandbecomes 

which may include; soggy nap- wet with moisture. Papersthatare 

minutes. This had a direct impact 
on my accounting lest that I had 
first thing in the moming. This 
was followed by the 12 a.m. 
through 1 :30 a.m. episode, where 
second and third floor alarms went 
off continuously. 

I'm currently not familiar with 
Tennessee's Revised Statutes, but 
I doubt if they are all that different 
from Oregon's — especially in 
regards to landlord/tenant laws. 

I feel that I have been nothing 
but inconvenienced by all thai has 
been happeninghereinTaige Hall. 
Most of it wasn't anything I 
couldn't deal with for a short 
amount of time. However, as I 
mentioned earlier, promises and 
deadl ines aren 't being kepi. When 
I approached the deans about this, 
their answer was, "I don't know 
when it'll be finished. Lastlknew 
it was supposed to be finished 
already ." 

This leads to the contract I 
signed before moving into Talge 
Hall. I promised to pay a certain 
amount, and you promised to 
provide adequate quarters for my 
shelterand a place to sleep. Being 
charged the same as if the work 
has already been finished is not 
fair — especially considering that 
it most likely won't be accom- 
plished until Christmas break, and 
maybe not even then.

How Do You 
Leave a Game 
Feeling Good? 

v John Appi-I 

So what is it that makes 
the difference between a 
good and a bad game? is it 
the fact ihat you may have 
performed exceptionally 
well as an individual or that 
your team is number one? 
It's been said many 
times that the attitude of the 
players is what determines 
how a game is viewed. If 

selves that we're out to have 
a good time, we'll leave 
feeling good. This is the 
case in all sports. I know 
that I personally have been 
offended by some player's 

what" attitude. 

Now, don't get me 
wrong, I love to win, and I 
hate tolose. Butl'vefound 
that when I'm just going 
out to have a good lime and 
not trying to start any 
"rumbles." less people dis- 
like me after the game. 

These words can often 
become a cliche and be ig- 
nored, yet they are what 
sports is all about. If we all 
can try a little bit harder, I 
believe we'll findourselves 
actually leaving with good

Who Is Aaron Winans? 

Having a conversation with religion major 
Aaron Winans is like riding on a slow-motion 
roller coaster. Your interest is piqued not 
because the discussion zips at adrenalin- 
pumping speeds, because it doesn't. It is 
because, although you're approaching the next 
curve at a slow and steady pace, you never 
quite know what's around it. 

Dressed in faded blue jeans, a white T-shirt 
and a faded jean jacket. Winans talks slow and 
sounds drugged. But he talks a lot, and his 
love for Christ is evident. 

Every once in a while, he makes a surpris- 
ingly quick move and downs a swig of Grape 
Crush as if he has caught the can escaping over 
the table edge out of the corner of his eye, and 
must jump to recapture it. 

"I don't really look spiritual," he says, 
taking a swallow of the purple fizz. "I'm not 
a bad person. I do care about people. That's 
why I came to Southern." 

Winans is a sophomore religion ministerial 
student. Most people at Southern probably 
know him as the guy who started out the year 
with no hair on his head except a goatee 
dangling from his chin. "People misunder- 
stand me," he says. "I'm not out to get them. 
I came here to help my friends and other 
people find God." 

Winans said he found God during his sen- 
ior year at Forest Lake Academy. "I'd hit rock 
bottom, and I saw all my friends down there 
with me," he says. At that time, he had a 
dream he believes was implanted by God, and 

By Jennifer J as 
it opened his eyes to the situation he was in. "I 
read Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to get an 
idea of who Jesus was," Winans says. "Once 
I felt I knew Him, I could witness, because I 
myself had been saved. Since then, my life's 
been a progression of things getting better arid 

Although his life has improved, Winans 
said the world in general is yetting worse. "I 
believe we're living in the last days. We're 
very close to a time of trouble. I believe we're 
going through the shaking, especially among 
young people," he says. Winans' voice gains 
momentum as he talks of his desire that Chris- 
tians "wake-up." "We're not even witnessing 
to our own neighbors and classmates." 

Winans continues, "Most everyone here 
pretends like they're athiests six days a week. 
We need to understand the real reason we 
came here. Graduation seems very far off to 
me, but my only goals are to be alive, have 
faith, serve God and try to help people," he 

Winans says there are certain types of people 
he can't get through to. "They don't under- 
stand me because I like to look different," he Wina "* ""'" l ,s d l •"»' ,h Jt he ' s carved " Wood - 
said. At the beginning of the semester, the top «™ n B ,s " nc "' h,s hobbies - 
of Winan's head was bald, and his chin sup- his goatee. "Last year J had a bunch of hair. It 
ported his only batch of facial hair, a whispy, was curly and bushy — like Einstein or 
light-brown goatee. By now, the hair on his Beethoven. Over the summer, I shaved lines

Do You Know How To Study? 

Studying. This is probably the most hated 
word on college campuses. We all dread the 
long hours of brain torturing work which only 
seem to leave us feeling tired and drained of 
all energy. However, like it or not, studying is 
an essential part of the college process and 
sadly enough, many do not know how to 


Wendy Waters, sophomore nursing student, 
^slud.vs in the McKee library. 

Take, for instance, your last test. Did you 
go in feeling fully prepared only to walk out 
wondering what subject you had really stud- 
ied six hours for the night before? If so, then 
maybe you should re-evaluate your study 
habits and check into the S, Q, 3R technique 
that is recommended by several of the teach- 
ers who give you those killer tests. 

The S, Q. 3R method is actually quite 
simple. It stands for Survey, Question, Read, 
Recall, and Review. S, Q, 3R. 

The first part of this method is survey. 
When you sit down to begin reading, first lake 
a look through the chapter. Get a feel for what 
you are going to be reading. "Look at the in- 
troduction and conclusion of the chapter," 
says physics professor Dr. Ray Hefferlin. 'it 
can be very helpful in further understanding 
what you are about to read." Along with the 
introduction and conclusion, the University of 
Montana, after researching study techniques, 
produced a handout that suggested also look- 
ing over the subheads. 

These subheads can then come in handy 
with the second part of our study method: 
question. Take each subhead that you have al- 
ready surveyed and convert them into ques- 
tions. However, if you are unable to find these 
answers then take your questions to class. 
"Making intelligent comments or asking ques- 
tions will help contribute to the class," said 

journalism teacher Dr. Lynn Sauls. "It also 
lets the teacher know you're alive." This is a 
definite plus. 

Now with question in hand, you're ready 
for the third phase: reading. "One of the things 
I hate about study uie is readme the chapters," 
says junior Tina Former. "It's so time con- 
suming." Sound familiar? Well, the Univer- 
sity of Montana came up with five ways to 
help you improve your reading rate and yet 
still he effective. 

•Read in phrases and thought units instead 
of one word at a time. 

•Reduce the number of words you concen- 

•Don't read or speak each word. You can 
achieve this by keeping your lips closed or by 
chewing gum. 

•Concentrate and think as you read, look- 
ing for important facts or figures that the 
teacher might want you to remember. These 
should be highlighted. 

•Set some time goals for reading various 
and keep reducing your time as you 

As you speedily read along now, remem- 
ber this tip from biology professor Dr. Steve 
Nyirady. "Don't just read over the informa- 
tion but write important points down." And

Tuesday night (Braves 5-4, after 12 innings). 


He says that when he first 
entered Talge Hall this year, he 
was sporting the bushy hair, and 
soon got into a heavy shouting 
session with Dean Hobbs. "He 
basically told me to cut it or leave. 
So I shaved my head. Actually 
my roommate and Ryan [Fetters] 
shaved it. with a bunch of shaving 
cream and razors. It was the best 
thing I everdid. I like to break out 
of old molds." 

Winans has several hobbies, 
but sports isn't one of them. "I'm 
not bad at sports. I'm just a bad 
sport," he says. "If I lose, I'm 
really mad. If I'm going to play 
sports, I'm going to lose some- 
time or another, so why play and 
be a loser?" 

Instead, Winans opts for the 
non-losing activities of painting 
with acrylics and woodcarving. 
"In society, the walls are flat, the 
lines are straight, and there are 
corners and perfect geometric 
shapes everywhere," he says. "In 
this rigid aimosphere, my thoughts 
bounce back onto myself and my 
own imperfections seem insur- 
mountable. I get depressed." 

Winans frequently goes out in 
the woods, goes camping or hikes 
the biology trail. "The woods are 
products of God's thoughts. In 
nature, there are a trillion shapes 
and colors. Nothing's perfectly

round or perfectly straight, 
he gestures a sort 
with his hands, "or perfectly any-

His love for the great outdoors 
is evidenced by his collection of 
"weird things" he has claimed and 
re-molded from nature that he sa_\ s 
decorate his side of the room he 
shares with J.T. Griffin. Hecarves 
spears, bows and arrows, toma- 
hawks, arrowheads and free-form 
walking sticks. "He used to leave 
little wood shavings all over the 
floor," Griffin says. "He's con- 
stantly bringing in sticks to carve 

What kind of roommate is 
Winans? "Man, I'm trying to find 
words to describe it," says Grif- 
fin. "It's sorta like living in a 
place where the weather changes 
a whole lot. It's very interesting." 
The two have known each other 
for about two years and decided to 
be roommates this semester. 

"I think I 'm a good roommate." 
Winans says. "The only thing is, 

annoys me. I don't have a radio 
andldon'town any tapes. Ithink 
music has a way of pulling on 
emotions, and I don't like my 
mood to sway. But I do like to 
sing in church. 

"Also, I like to have the room 
messy — to divert my focus of 
attention. He's a clean freak. But 
we knew what was involved, and 
I allow him to clean the room." 

Winans says if he had to have a 
motto, it would be Ecelesiastes 
12:12-14, and he recites the entire 
passage. "It says that the whole 
duty of man is to fear God and 
keep His commandments, and that 
is what I'm trying to do." 

"I know and understand my 
need for God," he says. "God 
totally changed me from an intro- 
vert and selfish person to some- 
one who cares about people and 
has a desire to do right." SK9 

from p. 9 

this is where reeallcomes in. Once 
you have finished reading, imme- 
diately recall important points, 
maybe even write down the an- 
swers to the subhead questions if 
you can still recall them. If not, 
then it's time for the final phase: 

According to Dr. Joan Min- 
ninger.writerofToto/ Retail Mow 
to Boost Your Memory Power, 
you can keep the material fresh in 
your mind by tracing over the 
information periodically and in so 
doing, it stays with you longer. In 
other words, when test time comes 
you won't need to frantically cram 

for your test if you take a few 
minutes each day to review the 
material. "Study all along," says 
Nyirady,"and asyou review ir\ in 
make the material undersUmdLihk- 
This will also help in recalling the 
information on a test. 

And a test is what you will be 
ready for... if you use the S, Q, 3R 
technique. Not only will you be 
less stressed when finals come 
around, but your mom and dad 
will be pleased with the results. 
Who knows, maybe they'll even 
send you more money! At least 
it's worth a try. »•«

14 Sophomore Nurses 
Capped at Annual Event 

Reprinted from the Southern Accent, September 15, 1977 

Fourteen nursing students 
were capped Jan. 28 at the new 
church on the SMC campus. 

The Ceremony, which began 
at 8:30, signified that the girls, 
sophomores pursuing the bac- 
c;t I aureate nursing program at 
SMC, have finished the general 
education requirements and are 
ready to begin their training in 
the clinical area of nursing. 

Dr. Jon Penner. professor of 
communications, presented to 
the class the "Challenge" of 

The "Response" was given 
for the class by student Patricia 

Second semester the girls will 
go the SMC's Orlando Campus, 
where they will study the rest of 
their sophomore year and their 
junior year. The SMC nursing 
program calls for baccalaureate 
students to spend their last year 
in residence on the Collegedale 

Capped in the ceremony are 
Carolyn Bader, Lynn Bicknell. 
Evelyn Erickson, Lynda Maxey.

campuses on which the nursing 
students may receive theirtrain-

year at the Madison campus near 
Nashville, Tenn., where they 
complete their training. 


Up and Down the Stairs... 

We left Hacknian Hall where 
ful salesman from Kentucky was demon- 
strating how to display microscope slides on 
a monitor (with the proper expensive equip- 
ment*. Just about everyone in the class 
con kl sec the structures on the slide and with 
the help of little circles, squares, or arrows, 
even,' liny aspect could be inspected. What 
a boon to Embryo, GB, PB, A&P. students 
who, at times, have only a hazy idea what is 
to be identified "at the tip of the pointer!" 

We also left Suzy Mazat, resplendent in 
her red plaid lumberjacket, contemplating 
her answers on an entomology lab test. She 
wax about lo accompany Matt Wilson (VA) 
in his blue -sweater out located ihrips hiding 
in the Celosia blossoms flourishing between 
Hackman Hall and the promenade. 

Fail is in full swing! We've had a rapid 
shift in temperatures — only 45° this a.m. 
Everyone can finally start wearing all those 
i'i;]i::;jins ihcy bought at the back-to-school 
sales in August or ordered from Lands End 
and L.L. Bean. Skies are blue, and autumn 
foliage isevcrywhere — howto begin? Most 
of the Oak trees, for the first time in years, 
have a tinge of red mixed in with the brown 
(it'll only last a couple of days). The hun- 
dreds of Bradford pears are ablaze with ma- 
roon leaves (if you don't know the name of 
a campus tree, guess Bradford pear!). The 

Sassafras are a delicate shade of orangy-pink 
and across the valleys, the Yellow Poplars 
stand out against the dark green Cedars. 

Well, let's find some stairs — how about the 
steepest of all near Brock Hall. But first a 
quick check on license plates in Daniells Hall 
parking lot; there are 18 Tennessee cars. 
Strangely enough, the first three letters of 
several plates are Texas. One of them is real 
cutesy with I (heart) SARRAH. I hope it's a 
long- tasting relationship! There are cars from 
Louisiana (Sportsman's Paradise). Oregon 
(with a Pine tree in the middle), Alabama 
(with hearts and things), North Carolina (First 
in Flight), Georgia (with its cleverly placed 
peach). These plates reminded me of a sign on 
the back of a Toyota last week — it surely 
would have won the Cutest Sign on the Back 
of a Car Contest (alias CSOTBOAC Con- 
test!)— asking the improbable question HAVE 
TODAY? No hint as to how you would go 
about doing this. I'm afraid most people will 
have to answer, "No, I haven't." 

Met some interesting (make that curious) 
people near the stairs: here's SA president 
Rob Fulbright (FL) in his blue sweater with 
Yvonne Gibson (KY) in bright red worrying 
about GB. Robin Altizer <MD) all smiles on 
her way to tennis, Kevin Fulford (FL) in his 
Florida jacket — lots of F's there, Heidi

And look who's here near the rocks — 
Rob's sister Shawna Fulbright celebrating 
fail in a nondescript sweat shirt plus terrific 
personality, and Jeanne Dickinson sporting 
a sweat shirt emblazoned with Chattanooga 
Polo Club on her way to Service, and Troy

denim shirt and bright floral tie — pretty

Jeff Arthur (KY) and Andrew Caban (FL) 
were perched on tops of ladders embedded 
in ornamental cabbage; they were painting 
the windows of Miller Hall. Neither of them 
had heard of me, the Campus Chatter or 
Southern Accent — we do live sheltered lives 
even at SC! 

But — everyone has heard of the Braves' 
fantastic victories and the subsequent up- 
roar. That news plus this fine autumn day, 
and the fact that Industrial Drive is finally 
gelling black-topped, and thai the alumni 
will be here to celebrate the Centennial 
should bring exhilaration and joy up and 
down the stairs.

It's Shot 

Flu To Be Strong This Year 

By Richard Pultiai 

"We i 

old by authorities that this is 

expected to be a banner year for the flu," said 
health service nurse Eleanor Hanson. "Stu- 
dents should be immunized within the next 
couple of weeks." 

Influenza or "flu" is a viral infection of the 
nose, throat, bronchial tubes, and lungs. The 
flu usually occurs in the United States from 
about November to April. The symptoms are 
fever, chills, cough, and soreness and achine 
in the back, arms, and legs. "There are three 
types of flu; A, B, and C," Hanson said. "Type 
A is the one thai is being predicted this year." 
It is the strongest and most dangerous. 

Students were to sign up for flu shots by 
Oct. 31. The purpose ot the sign up sheets was 
to let health service know in advance how 
much vaccine to order. This was also done so 
there would not be a large inventory left over 
at its expense. "For that reason, the students 
must be willing to be charged on their account 
even if they don't come for the shot when it 
arrives," said Hanson.

People, Animals, and Objects 
Attend SA Barn Party 

Club/Department News 

On Oct. 31, the students of 
Happy Valley forgot their studies 
to experience a country- western 

Candle-bags lighted the path- 
way that led to FMlmans' bam. A 
blazing bonfire greeted the as- 
sortment of people, animals, and 
objects who gathered on Oct. 31 
for the SA Bam Party. 

The festivities began with a 
"yee-haw," as the SC Hillbillies 
brought down the rafters with their 
authentic music. The country- 
western band kicked things off 
with "Rocky Top Tennessee." 
"Brennon Kirstein was incredible 
on the fiddle," said junior Sam 
Leonor. "He astounded me." 

Clad in his costume "by J. C. 
Penney," biology professor E.O. 
Grundset hosted the evening. He 
entertained with comments about 
each person's outfit in the cos- 
tume contest, includingcomment- 
mg on Heather Bergstrom, dressed 
as Grundset. "At least she knows 
where to scratch," said Grundset. 

The contest had 49 entries. A 
panel of student and facultyjudges 
chose the winners. Costumes were 
judged on creativity and ranged 
from people to objects. 

The winners in ascending or- 
der were: Aaron Muth as the Ter- 
minator, Chad Nash and Kim Fra- 
zier as Elvis and his guitar, Travis 
Patterson as Waldo, Pamela and 
Sheila Draper as Hershey Kisses, 
Michael Brown and Lanessa Sims 
as Robin Hood and Maid Marian, 
Matt Wilson and Clifton Brooks 
as Talge and Thatcher roaches, 
and Brennon Kirstein and his 
animals as Old MacDonald's 
Farm. A total of $495 was given 
away in prize money. 

The SA also announced the 
winners of the pumpkin carving 
contest which was held on the 
promenade during Fall Festival 
supper the night before the party. 
First place went to Ingrid Eklund 
and Debbie Illick. Brad Emde 
and Angela Dyerclaimed second. 
And third place was awarded to 
Suzy Mazat. 

The evening was 
by a marshmallow 
bonfire and a hay ride. "The party 
was more fun than trick-or-lreat-

Letters to the Editor 

Hackman Hall of Horrors Is Wrong 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to express an opin- 
ion concerning the Hackman Hall 
of Horrors. I send this with the 
regards to the faculty, staff, and 
administration of our school. 

Last year, I sent a personal 
memorandum to the chairman and 
staff of the biology department 
concerning the same event. It 
contained a concern for the Spiri- 
tual (as in of God) outreach and 
development for the students of 
this school. This program is 
something I feel that goes con- 
trary to this development. 

I don't feel that I need to pres- 
ent arguments from the Spirit of 
Prophecy or from the Bible itself 
to bring to focus the struggle be- 
tween Christ and Satan in our 
world. But as a Christian, it only 
seems rational to me to uphold 
that which supports it. 

Just to mention something of 
the nature of this "horror" event, I 
believe the word itself says it all. 
The only fear we should have is to 
"fear God and give glory to Him." 
Bui tliisdocsn't inferbeing scared 
of God, but of Satan. He is lead- 
ing many to their graves daily 
with something that's really fright- 
ful, eternal separation from God: 
So, having people come and pay 
"1>2 per body" for a cheap, deceiv- 
ing thrill should be re-examined. 
Scripture tells us that our bodies 
are the temple of God and I think 
we should have Him there. 

As for my opening statement 

in regard to the faculty, staff, and 
administration, I must say that I 
include all, even myself, as the 
entire body of Southern College. 
But in general, those of you with 
the positions of high officesshould 
try to influence what programs 
should be held on campus, here at 
a Christian college. However, if 
the Hackman Hall of Horrors has 
been prayerfully considered, I 
want to apologize for my views. I 
just wanted to bring my prayerful 
thoughts into the open on an issue 
that I believe needs such insight. 
Christ says we need to test things 
the Spirit to see if they are just. 

uld I 

This program > 
place to start. 

There is one last thing that I 
wish to mention. I feel like Paul 
writing to the Corinthians as I can 
say praise God for the Steps-to- 
Chrisi ministries that met on Lynn 
Wood Hall stairs that night. As I 
passed by them on a walk, they 
were singing, sharing in testimony, 
and praising God. On down at 
Hackman Hall, you could hear 
screams and shrills of voices in 
torment. It kind of made me think 
of the second coming, and what 
sinners will have chosen over the 
peace and safety that conies from 
being in the midst of Christ. I pray 
foryouSleps-to-Christ ministries. 
Keep up the good work, brothers 
and sisters in Christ. Hold high 
the banner of our Savior! (Please 

Hackman Hall of Horrors Is Right 

Dear Editor: 

We would like to clarify a few 
points about Hackman Hall of 
Horrors. There seems to be some 
misconceptions circulating. 

First of all, it was not a haunted 
house. We have never called it 
such and if we heard HHH re- 
ferred to as a haunted house, we 
have tried to correct the misun- 

Second, we purposely had no 
ghosts, spooks, witches, goblins, 
or anything relating to spiritual- 
ism in HHH. In fact, we like to 
think of HHH as an alternative to 
the haunted houses in the area. 
All we used were biological and 
chemical specimens/materials, 
black plastic, and a lot of duct 
tape. True, if someone wanted to 
be scared, they could, (one girl 
almost hyperventilated at the sight 
of a snake that she knew wasn't 
real) for we followed the policy of 

"reach out and touch « 
especially when they weren't 
expecting it. 

Third, we would like to ask 
that if anyone wishes to criticize 
us, that they get their facts straight 
first, or maybe even go through 
HHH one year. First hand experi- 
ence is always better than second 
hand information. 

We also want the student body 
to know what the money was 
raised for. First, we set aside 
some to pay for next year's HHH. 
Then, we use some to sponsor the 
E.O. Grundset Lecture Series. 
And third, we use some to subsi- 
dize a few of the club's outings. 
If anyone has any questions or 
about HHH. please just 
: of us and we will try to

Campus Animals Aren't That Bad! 

Dear Edi 

Hi! I'm the dog some call 
Rusty. I read the article in the 
Accent last week about my friends 
and me, and thought someone 
should say something in our de- 
fense. As up-and-coming adults. 
I figured you college students 
would like to bear another angle 
to the story of our existence. Sol 
have a few points I would like to 
bring to yourattention. Here's the 
story from my point of view. 

To start with, when I first set 
foot on this campus, I didn't have 
the intention of staying. But so 
many of you were kind to me, and 
seemed to enjoy me being around, 
thai I thought you wanted me here. 
So I stayed. With the rising cost 

of tuition and other college ex- 
penses, I figured the fact that I 
came free of charge would be a 

I don't consider myself de- 
manding. I wait by the sidewalk 
as you dash to and from class. If 
you are too busy to notice me, I 
don't mind. Butifyoudohavethe 
time to say a kind word or pat my 
belly, well, I'm pretty pleased. 

Feeding me is not required al- 
though I do enjoy the treats some 
ofyouleaveme. But you'll notice 
1 wasn't starved when I came, and 
if you decide feeding me is too 
great of a burden. I'll make it just 

To be labeled a pest or a nui- 

sance bothers me a bit. I'm sure 
many of you have seen worse 
trained dogs. The ones that leave 
piles on porches, chase cars, tear 
things to pieces, bark constantly, 
and jump up on you with muddy 
feet. I've refrained from such 
activity and consider myself to be 
quite a gentleman. I think you 
would be able to recognize a true 

In closing. I know not every- 
one is adog lover, and not all dogs 
are people lovers. But I love 
people, and if lean make some of

around, then that is what I want to

Good Call Ref ! 

By John Appel 

Recently, I've heard 
of the "super, neve 
wrong athletes" of our 
pus make 
about the officiating during 
intramurals. It seems that 
they are blaming their loss on 
a certain call, and to make 
matters worse, they say the 
call was made because the 
referee was biased. To an- 
swer that, I've got just one 
thing to say. "Grow up!" 

Perhaps a call was made 
that you disagree with. So 
what! Do you really think 
that the cali is going to be 
reversed because you can 
throw a temper tantrum. To 
tell the truth, when I have 
officiated games in the past, I 
like to feel that I have been 
totally unbiased. However, 
as soon as someone jumps all 
over me for a call I've made, 
a little voice tells me to nail 
them with whatever penally 
comes to mind. But John, 
you may say, that' s not right. 
Maybe not, but it is human 
nature to react that way, so 
keep it to yourself! 

The ; 

t of l

into intramurals by the physl

the student referees is greatly

people are putting a great ef- 
fort into making our athletics

Bungee Jumping Combines 
Lunacy and Gravity 

Although I'd heard Ihe experience described 
as "death survived," I stepped into the cage 
and began to move slowly skyward. Standing 
there on the edge it felt as though God and I 
were watching a video of the ground. I took a 
step. Suddenly it seemed like God had hit fast- 
forward on the remote control. Then He hit 
reverse. Then fast forward again. Butlwasn't 
watching a video. For some reason — maybe 
lunacy, maybe gravity— I had just fallen from 
a cage tethered to a tower more than 1 50 feet 
in the air. A rubber cord stretched to slow my 
fall and kept me from hitting the ground. I was 
experiencing the brief, blurred world of the 
bungee jumper. 

Lunacy and gravity make good matchmak- 
ers. Lunacy matches crazy people with high 
places. Gravity quickly matches those people 
with the ground. Ultimately, these combina- 
tions can result in matching these people with 
paramedics and body-casts. 

But at Raccoon Mountain's High Adven- 
ture Sports, just west of the city limits of 
Chattanooga, crazy people have the opportu- 
nity to act on their lunacy and a chance to 
disregard gravity. Safely. 

Part of the logo on the brochure for High 
Adventure Sport's operations reads "the go 
anywhere, do anything people." Actually this 
phrase is just the long, fancy way of saying 
"the crazy people." 

Leon Riche, Jr. is the founder and lead 
lunatic of High Adventure Sports Inc. He has 
been doing crazy things for many years. He 
holds 16 assorted licenses and certifications 
for various airborne activities including flying 
multi-engine aircrafts, skydiving, commer- 
cial lighter-than-airfree ballooning, and pilot- 
ing ultra light and sailplane aircrafts. He is 
also the holder of three world's records in

ing tower to the public. Traditionally, bungee 
jumpers have leapt from hot-air balloons.

bridges, and cranes at varying heights. A 
long, nylon-wrapped rubber cord is the only 
thing used to keep them from crashing to the 
ground. Riche's bungee tower offers what he 
calls a much safer, more accessible altema- 

Riche holds a degree in industrial technol- 
ogy and spent seven years as a ship-builder. 
Hedesigned the towerhimself. He also welded 
the tower together from raw materials in a 
process that consumed four months and 
$150,000. The tower stands 180 feet tall and 
has a long arm bolted through it at the top. It 
leans at a 13 degree angle and resembles a 
huge steel gallows. A cage is suspended from 
the tower's arm and is raised and lowered by 
a steel rope that runs through a series of 
pulleys and winches controlled at ground level. 

The bungee cord itself is 50 feet long, as 
thick as a man's wrist, and is attached to the 
bottom of the cage. The other end of the 
bungee cord is attached to the jumper with a 
body harness that resembles the body harness 
used by parachutists. The jumper steps into 
the cage and is raised to a height of 176 feet. 
The cage ascends only a few feet per second, 
allowing the jumperaconsiderable amount of 
time to develop second thoughts. 

Once the cage has reached the top of the 
tower, Riche yells "One, two, three, high 
adventure!" and the jumper rolls out of the 
cage to become a human yo-yo. The jumper 
feels the force of gravity tripled on his body as 
the 50 foot cord stretches past 100 feet, then 
snaps back, the subsequent number of stretches 
and snaps depends on the body weight of the 

People have two natural qualities: greed 
and a fear of heights. In his pre-jump motiva- 
tional speech, Riche helps one overcome the 
latter by appealing to the former. He says 
"You can ride down or jump down, the price 
is the same." Riche always gets his money up 

Many have a hard time describing what it 

ping last 

feels like to jump from the tower — although a 
lot of them seem to use the word "rush" when 
describing it. 

Rhonda Smith has jumped from the tower 
more than a dozen times. "I enjoy the adrenal- 
ine rush," says Smith. John Harrell, himself 
an avid bungee jumper, also uses the word 
"rush" in describing the experience. "The 
recoil's what gets you. The bungee pops you 
back up as fast as you went down. It's such a 
rush, I love it." 

When I jumped, the recoil did not have the 
same effect on me. The only thing that rushed 
was my mind as it frantically tried to keep up 
with what was happening to my body. No 
sooner was I plunging towards the earth with 
a primitive sense of panic overwhelming my 

What's Behind New Age Music? 

Quartz crystals hung from the window sills 
reflecting flashes of color. The smell of in- 
cense drifted into the air. Soft, relaxing music 
Played throughout the room. A waterfall 
gurgled in the corner. Books with strange 
symbols lined the shelves. This is not some 
average store, it is a New Age book store-a 
center for believers in the coming New Age.

is what most people think of when confronted 
by the words New Age. But many fail to take

It is relaxing and seems harmless. Most of 
it has no words and blends into its' listeners 
surroundings. It does not intrude on one's

Is this music harmless or is it dangerous? 
When choosing one's music, whether modem 
or classical, one must keep in mind the beliefs 
and ideas of its creators. 

The majority of groups that produce New 

Age music are deeply into the practice of the 
New Age religion. Their music reflects their 
beliefs just as Christian music reflects our 

Most Advenlists go to great pains to elimi-

tanic activities. People should at least spend

as they do their food.

s that I felt my body 
yanked violently towards the sky 
again. Afterafewsecondslfound 
myself at the apex of my return 
ascent. This allowed me only the 
time to regain just enough of my 
consciousness to look briefly 
about me. 1 noticed once again 
how far I was from the ground, the 
mountains, the horizon, and just 
how unnatural it was for me to be 
where I was. Feeling gravity's 
inevitable tug I thought to myself, 
"Oh no, not again." 

Bungec jumping has its origins 
with the "land divers" wholive on 
one of the islands in the South 
Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu. 
During springtime, the islanders 
gather liana vines which they use 
to make long cords. Young men 
climb high, wooden towers, tie 
the cords around their ankles, and 
jump. The jump is worn as an 
intangible badge of courage and 
serves as a good omen for the 
forthcoming yam harvest. The 
popularity of bungee jumping is 

growing fast, but it is still a rela- 
tively obscure sport. The sport's 
group of enthusiasts is still made 
up primarily of sky divers, moun- 
tain climbers and other adrenaline 

According to an article in Time 
Magazine, there have been no 
reported fatalities in the U.S. at- 
tributed to bungee jumping. 
However, on Oct. 27, a bungee 
jumping instructor died jumping 
from a hot air balloon. Also, two 
French jumpers fell to their deaths 
in 1989 when their cords broke, 
and a third died after colliding 
with the pole from which he was 
jumping. Riche says that the thrills 
outweigh the risks. When my 
jump was over I slowly wobbled 
back to my car, feeling like a 
Thanksgiving day turkey that had 
been gutted but somehow sur- 
vived. Riche bade me farewell by 
saying, "Now don't get in a wreck 
going home. The most dangerous 
thirty ahoul bungee jumping is the 

drive out here."

SC Observations. .•From a Distance 

Foreign Correspondent Andy Nash 
Reports from the Accent's Thai Bureau 

It's safer to talk abou I people when they ' re 
on the opposite side of the world. 

I 've been thinking. My previous article, 
"One year of Thais and Ties," likely had 
tittle impact on your lives, right? 

After all, does it really matter to you, the 
SC students and faculty, how many dog- 
sized rats bolt up our stairs each week? 
Does it benefit your G.P.A. in any way to 
know that we have run out of peanut butter? 
Are you able to sleep any better upon learn- 
ing of a wild-eyed Thai woman named 
Jugkajan who frantically calls us night and 
day? (She thinks the Muslims are after her 
because she fed some Roetee— a Musiim 
food-to a stray dog on the street.) 

No, these things just do not affect you in 
the smallest way. When you open the Ac- 
cent, you expect articles that will change 
your life (and a bunch of neat pictures). 

So, with this in mind, I'd like to focus on the 
campus of Southern College, beginning with 
the next sentence. 

Well, October is coming to an end. I guess 
this means the return of the SA Bam Party. 
And this year, I hope Dr. R. Lynn Sauls and 
Mr. VolkerHenning of the journal ism depart- 
ment attended — Sauls as the mad inventor 
Doc Brown from "Back to the Future" and 
Henning as James Bond: 007. 

lean just hear them: "Quick! Into the time 
machine— we have to make deadline!!" 

"The name's Henning. Voiker Henning." 

Okay, okay. It's just an idea. 

I imagine the SA has taken off this year 
with Fulbright at the controls. Rob, for your 
sake, I hope no Fat Birds fly over campus 
anytime soon. Good luck with all the big 
centennial festivities. 

So what else is happening? Has Atlanta 

Braves fan Jody Travis become impossible 
to live with? Atlanta winning. Sounds like 
a contradiction of terms to me, Jody. Con- 
gramlations Twins! 

By the way, how many times has this 
year'sDestiny director asked you to "Imag- 
ine with me if you will?" And here's some- 
thing for all of you to think about: If Pastor 
Bietz breathed in helium, would his voice 
still sound the same? 

Well, that will about do it from here. As 
you can see, we do a good deal of thinking 
about you, too. 

If the pressures of everyday college life 
cause you to question your existence, drop 
by the chaplain's office. Ken, Sherrie, Jeff, 
Ingrid, and the rest would be happy to see 
you join us here in the Orient. 

And then you, too, will be able to make 
SC observations— from a distance.

Christmas Tree Lighting Will Be Different 

Turkey Supper 
Won't Be 'Fowl' 

SA Will Serve a Veggie 
Thanksgiving Supper Tonight 

By Jennifer Speichcr 

"Why did die Worthinglon veggie-turkee

"To get away from the headhunting SA 
officers," said Krisi Clark, Student Associa- 
tion social vice-president. 

The veggie-turkee will be carved at the 
annual SA Thanksgiving Dinner Thursday at 
5 p.m. in the cafeteria. The SA officers will 
seat the dinner guests and act as waiters and 

"Guests will enjo\ their combo dinner and

Current Catalog Adds More 
Graduation Reqirements 

Southern students have watched the tradi- 
tional campus Christmas tree lighting for 
approximately 32 years, but this year the cere- 
mony will be different. 

"The lighting will be different from any 
other year because it is the centennial," said 
biology professor Edgar O. Grundset. "It's 
going to be sort of like a parade." It will start 
at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 4, in fromt of 
Wright Hall. 

There will also be two Santa Clauses. Both 
will arrive in fire trucks and will be escorted 
by ambulances and police cars equipped with 
blaring sirens. The two Santas, whose identi- 
ties will not be revealed, are going to jump out 
ol the fire trucks and light the tree while 
throwing candy canes. 

_ "The Christmas tree lighting is always a 
nice way to start the Christmas season," said 

Grundset. The large pine tree is located in 
front of Wright Hall and centered between the 
two dorms. Grundset said the tree was planted 
specifically for the purpose of the Christmas 

After the lighting of the tree, the Brass 
Ensemble and the singing group Something 
Special will present a short program. Hot 
chocolate, hot cider and donuts will be served. 

The SA and Imagination Station playground 
are planning "A Hayride with Santa." The 
cost is $1 per person, and the proceeds will 
help build the playground. 

"There is always a big crowd and the 
community even joins in the celebration." 
said Grundset. "There are more students at the 
Christmas tree lighting than any otherevent of 
the school year and we hope this year won't be 
any different." 

Students in a number of majors who regis- 
tered under the current catalog will have new 
steps added to their graduation requirements. 
The added steps are part of a national trend 
towards increased assessment of students. 

"Colleges are facing increasing criticism 
from state legislatures and the public," said 
academic dean Floyd Greenleaf. "In order to 
avoid state intervention, many colleges are 
developing their own forms of assessment." 
Many departments at Southern are assem- 
bling their own assessment procedures. 

"Every department should develop a way 
of assessing its majors." sjid Greenleaf. "Every 
10 years all colleges face re-accreditation. 
This is a complex process of assessing the 
school's facilities and the quality of its in- 
struction. The new assessment requirements 
help gauge the quality of Southern's instruc- 
tion and help point out areas that need im- 

Greenleaf said Southern looks"quite good" 
when compared to other schools. Southern 
students have scored well on the Academic 
Profile exam, which is a portion of the new 
requirements and mandatory for sophomores 
and associate degree candidates. 

"Traditionally it has been assumed that if a 
school has a certain number of books in its 
library and its teachers hold so many ad-

To Write, or Not To Write 

The Writer's Club Is Encouraging Writers To Get Involved 

To write or not to write, that is 
the question. 

Sharpen your pencils or turn 
on your computers, it's time to let 
[he Shakespeare in you come out. 
The Writers' Club wants you to 
know that you don't have to be an 
English or journalism major to 
write and be published. 

"I never thought of myself as 
awriter," says social science major 
Rhoda Gottfried. "Sol was really 
excited to be published." An ar- 
ticle by Gottfried will be pub- 
lished in the December issue of 
"He Is Alive," an Adventist pub- 
lication. She first became inter- 
ested in writing while taking an 
English composition course last 

There are other non-English 
or journalism majors who are 
successfully writing. Psyeholog} 
major Kirslin Chalker has sold an 
article to Insight and business 
major Calvin Simmons has sold a 
poem to Chattahoochee Review 
magazine in Atlanta. 

The Writers' Club is seeking 
poems, essays, stories and other 
types of writing for the "Legacy," 

the club's yearbook of students" 
literary works, says editor Eric 

Club sponsor Helen Pyke says, 
"I'm encouraging more people to 
come to meetings and share what 
they are writing and learn what 
they can do with their work." 

According to Rochester, the 
Writers' Club is sponsoring two 
writing contests this year. Stu- 
dents may enter as many times as 
they wish. The first contest dead- 
line is Dec. l.and the winners will 
be announced Jan. 10. Cash prizes 
will be awarded for first, second 
and third place. 

When asked what some of the 
goals were for the Writers" Club 
this year, president Russ Miller 
said, "To get more people inter- 
ested in writing not only for pub- 
lication, but also a hobby." 

The Writers' Club plans on 
having professional writers come 
to speak at meetings as well as 
student writers. The club meets 
once a month on every third 
Wednesday at 5:15 in the back of 
the cafe. Everyone is invited to

tional individuals who would like to potentially make $1,000

Four Southern Students Chose Jesus 

Week of Spiritual Emphasis Held Last Week 

Four students made the 
choice last week. 

"Jesus, the choice of our gen- 
eration," the theme for last 
week's Student Week of Spiri- 
tual Emphasis, was accepted by 
Harold Chin, Kerry Haggkvisi. 
Paulette Ropka, and Sharon 
Smith. Two of them requested 
to be baptized again, and the 
other two wished to rededicate 
their lives to Jesus. 

Chaplain Ken Rogers will 

work with the two who want 
rebaptism. "I felt the Spirit was 
present throughout the week," 
said Rogers. "And the speakers 
used the theme well in their 
messages." He is also "pleased 
with the reception given to the 
speakers from the student 

Junior Ted Showalter said. 
"I liked what the speakers had

Audubon Quartet 
Performs at Southern 

The Audubon Quartet, re- 
nowned for their "strikingly beau- 

I tiful, luminescent" sound (New 
York Times), performed Wednes- 
day, Nov. 20, in the Collegedale 
Church. They performed works 
by Dvorak, Schubert and 

I Shostakovich. 

[ The Audubon Quartet was 
founded in 1974 and quickly 
achieved international recognition 
by winning top prizes in three 
major competitions in their first 
four years together. The group 
currently is the resident ensemble 
of the Virginia Polytechnic Insti- 
tute and State University. 

Each season the quartet travels 
throughout Europe and the United 
States. They have performed in 
France. England, Brazil, the Car- 
ibbean. Italy, the People's Repub- 
lic of China, and throughout the 
United States, including a per- 
formance for President Carter at 
the White House. 

Students received double as- 
sembly credit for attending. Some 
were able to apply the credit to- 
ward second semester. This was 
an experiment to improve atten- 
dance at the concert, said Mary 
Lou Rowe, secretary to the vice 
president for student affairs.

Thank Someone!

What is Thanksgiving? 
And shucks, why are all the 
dried corn cobs around? 
What is Plymouth Rock? Is 

it something like New Age 

What does Thanksgiving 
mean to you? Ifitonlymeans 
a turkey dinner, you have a 
fowl way of looking at this 

But seriously, Thanksgiv- 
ing has lost its meaning for 
mostofus. Sure it means you 
can leave school for about a 
week and eat goad meals for 
free. But when was the last 
time you actually thought of 
thanking God, or anyone, on 
Thanksgiving Day? Many 
scores and some years ago, 
our forefathers planned for 
this day to be one of thanks 
for the past year's blessings. 

This Thanksgiving, show

Letters to the Editor 

I Liked the 

Article on 

Aaron Winans 

Dear Editor: 

Though I am no longer a stu- 
dent at Southern College, I was 
lucky enough to have a friend 
send me an article from your 
October 24 edition. I was en- 
thralled by the Lifestyle piece 
"Who is Aaron Winans?" This 
article was excellent and impor- 
tant journalism by Jennifer Jas. 
Aaron has long been an important 
force at Southern, and it is appro- 
prite that he be highlighted by the 
Accent. Aaron has shown many 
of us what it means to be a Chris- 
tian, neighbor, mountain man. and 
friend. I recommend all students 
and faculty to give him an ear. 
You'll find, as I did, that Aaron 
Winans is truly the king of South- 
ern College.

Creative Dating People Exist 

Dear Editor: 

In response to your editorial on 
creative dating. I just wanted to let 
you know that there are creative 
dating people out there. 

Three fine gents asked three 
lovely ladies (myself and two 
friends of course) out for an ad- 
venture date last Saturday night. 
The evening began by taking a 
hike thru the wilderness of some- 
one's backyard who we didn't 
even know. Then, short of breath 
and experiencing aching muscles, 
the gents instructed us to look up. 
Up, 60 feet in the air, at the top of 
a tree, was a platform. That was 
where we were to have vespers. 
The guys said they were testing to 
see if we were really as adventur- 
ous as claimed in the Joker. 
Vespers had never been a life- 
threatening experience for me 

After vespers, we got back into 
our "Labamba Mobile" as we 
affectionately named it. We 
cruised with the wind in our hair 
to downtown Chattanooga. Our 
destination was the Marriot Ho- 
tel. We entered, clad in our jeans 

and sweatshirts, dirty from scal- 
ing trees, to mingle with the 
couples dressed in evening gouns 
andsuits. Wemadeourway tothe 
elevator and rode down to the 
indoor pool and Jacuzzi. After 
swimming and having chicken 
fights, we moved on to the next 
portion of the evening. 

Dressed again in our dirty 
clothes, only now we were also 
wet. we entered the Market Res- 
taurant to enjoy dessert. To work 
off our newly gained pounds of 
ice cream, we climbed the stair- 
wells until we emerged onto the 
hotel roof. The view was incred- 

The last destination was 
Chickamauga Lake, where we 
skipped stones across the lake and 
tried to build a bonfireout of leaves 
to keep up from freezing. 

Driving back, we reverted to 
childhood ad\eniures of Chinese 
fire drills. This continued from 
the lake to the girl's dorm parking 
lot. The evening ended by racing 
into the dorm to beat curfew!

Who Are You Going To Vote For? 

What do Arnold Schwarzenegger. Sandra 
Day O'Connor, General Norman Sch- 
warzkopf, and Robin Williams have in com- 
mon? They are some of the names lhat South- 
em College students said would make good 
presidents of the United States. 

Why, one might ask, was a survey taken to 
find out who students would choose as presi- 
dent? Because it's that time again when 
Americans start to look towards the presiden- 
tial elections and begin to consider who they 
will vote for one year from now. 

It is time to start askinq yourself if you are 
tired of being one of President Bush's 1.000 
points oflight or if the prospect of Dan Quayle 
becoming president, should something hap- 
pen to Bush, still scares you. Or maybe you 
think it would he prudent at this juncture to re- 
elect Bush. And you can, but only if you vote. 

At first students were asked who, out of the 
candidates running or George Bush, they would 
vote for as president. Basically no one could 
name a single Democratic candidate. 

So the question was changed to, "If you 
could vote for anyone to be president of the 
United States, who would you vote for?" Most 
students gave blank stares or long pauses 
before finally answering, "I don't know. I'll 
have to think about it." 

After this question was asked to 55 stu- 
dents, it was discovered lhat politics is not a 
subject on most college students' minds. It 
was as if they were asked to predict who 
would be president in the year 2004. 

It is not surprising that many students did 

not have any idea who was running or who 
they would pick. The seven Democratic can- 
didates who are running are not well-known to 
the general public. And the fact that college 
students lead busy lives and do not have much 
time to read newspapers or watch the news 
also explains why most are not aware of or 
don't care about the upcoming campaigns. 

The purpose of this article, then, is to get 
students to start thinking about the elections. 
The Tennessee primary is March 10 and to 
vote one must register 30 days before. It is in 
the primaries lhat voles count the most, so it is 
important to find out where and when the 
primaries are for one's state. 

When asked why he thought it is important 
for college students lobe interested in politics, 
junior religion major and resident Democrat 
Alex Bryan said that since students will soon 
be out in the working world, they need to 
know what is going on around them. 

"We need to understand and participate in 
the governmental process," he said. "It is 
important to be informed. Our government 
offers open expression of and we should 
never take that for granted." 

The front -runner of the survey turned out to 
be "I don't know." Runner-up was President 
George Bush. Some apparently named Bush 
because they could not think of anyone else. 
Some said they thought that he's done a good 
job, so why rock the boat? Third in the survey 
was New York Governor Mario Cuomo, who 
has not declared his candidacy, but many 
think he will. 

Asked who he v 
SA president Rob Fulbright said Arkansas 
Governor Bill Clinton. Fulbright explained 
that he likes Clinton's domestic policies and 
the fact that, "He puts America first." 

Five faculty were also surveyed. President 
Sahly would like to see former Governor of 
Tennessee and current Education Secretary 
Lamar Alexander as a possible president. "I 
think because of his past record he would be 
very supportive of education," said Sahly. 

Two women were mentioned as possible 
choices for president. It also seems people 
would like to see an actor in the White House 
again because 12 were mentioned, one ot

Only two of the actual Demo- 
cratic candidates were voted for. 
Each received one vote. 

The students who didn't know 
who to vote for were asked what

be honest, and have good leader-

Will the 1992 election have as 
much mud-slinging and dirty 
politics as in the 1988 election? 
History department chairman Dr. 
Benjamin McArthur said, "No 

reason to think that it won't. 
People want to win." 

According to McArthur, the 
economy will ultimately be the 
biggest issue in this election, as 
well as health care and taxes. 

Although this survey gave 
some amusing results and not 
much else, it did provide informa- 
tion about the political awareness 
of students.

campaigns and start to consider 
who you think would make the 
best president ol the United States.

Bible Study Groups 'Cram' in Talge 

Pages are lumed quickly. Eyes 
search for answers. Seven guys 
are huddled in a room studying. 
This is not a cram session for 
biology or chemistry. It'sastudy 

consequences. The subject is the 
Gospel of John. This scene is 
repeated 17 times each week in 
Taige Hall as the newly formed 
small group Bible study program 
gets under way. 

"Over one quarter of the dorm 
is involved," said Virgil Covel, 
small group study coordinator. 
Although there are only 17 groups 
at present Covel expects to add 
another group soon. The average 
number of participants is six, not 
counting the leader. But accord- 
ing to Covel, some groups had 
three to four people join in the 
first few weeks. Each member of 
the group receives a copy of the 
Gospel of John, and a packet of 
lessons. The groups meet once a 
week for about an hour to discuss 
and study thai week's lesson. 

"I love it," said Mike 
Robertson. "I enjoy the fellow- 
ship among guys in an atmos- 

phere where you can talk freely 
about Christ." Robertson has 
found that the groups are helpful 
to him because he has a chance to 
hear varying opinions on differ- 
ent aspects of religion. He also 
^said that the group has helped 
strengthen his prayer life and to 

"The best thing about the 
groups is that it is not something 
that the guys have to do. They 
want to come." said study group 
leader Harvey Hillyer. He added 
that he sees the study groups as a 
positive influence in the dorm. 

"1 got the idea from the Oolte- 
wah church," said Virgil Covel. 
small group coordinator for Talge 
Hall. He went on to say that the 
goals of the study groups include 
helping the guys draw closer to 
each other, become belter Chris- 
tians, and to witness to others. 

Covel, in conjunction with 
Dean Qualley and Ken Rogers,

Garren Launches Campaign By 
Visiting AH 11 District Counties 

Reprinted from the Southern A 

t, November 21, 1967 


fessor of art at SMC. officially 
launched his campaign as the 
Republican candidate for U.S. 
Congress in all 1 1 counties in 
Tennessee's Third District last 

Garren, accompanied by his 
family and a group of support- 
ers, began theday in Polk Counry 
at sunrise and finished up in 
Morgan County around 7 p.m. 
Press conferences were sched- 
uled in Benton. Cleveland, 
Chattanooga, Jasper, Dunlap, 
Pikeville, Daylon, Decatur, 
Kingston, Oak Ridge, and Wart- 

"Tn traveling to all 1 1 coun- 
ties in one day to make our an- 
nouncement, we hope to show 
our desire to represent all the 
people of the Third District," 
said Garren. 

In his announcement Garren 
said,"As a candidate for public 
office, most people expect me to 
have all the answers, but 1 don't. 
So 1 am asking each one of you 
to help me suck solutions to nil 
the problems that face us all." 

Garren cited four major areas 
that he feels "we must let Wash- 
ington hear our voices on." 

"We must stop higher and 
higher laves for bigger and big- 
ger government with less and 
less efficiency. Second, we must 
provide jobs for people through 
the private sector to be lasting 
and to stimulate the economy in 
a permanent and productive way. 
Third, a sensible solution to the 
energy problems that face this 
country, through increased re- 
search and development of al- 

ternative methods, such as the 
breeder reactor and solar energy 
by both government and private 
enterprise, must be found. 
Fourth, we must have a strong 
American defense system to 
guarantee our national security 
and maintain international re- 
spect for democracy." said Gar- 

Garren saidhis campaign will 
take him to the people. "I plan 

during the coming summer and 
until November to spend every 
day with people, either on the 
job, at the factory gate, at the 
farm, or in the street so as to feel 
and understandhow we can work 
out solutions to our common 

Garren feels his background, 
both as an educator and one- 
time businessman, gives him an 
understanding of some of the 
problems facing all of us. "I 
know what it's like to work alt 
night and then go to college by 
day to educate myself." said 
Garren. "In making this deci- 
sion to run, I ask not only for 
support, but for your prayers tor 
both me and my family." said 

A resident of Hamilton 
County for the past ten years, 
Garren isanalive of North Caro- 
lina and graduated from high 
school in Asheville. He received 
his undergraduate degree from 
Atlantic Union College. He also 
holds a master's degree from 
Rochester Institute of Technol- 

He is married to the former 
Ruth Morgan and they have V 
children, Julie. 9 and Rob, 7. 


Up and Down the Stairs... 

Sashaying out the back door of Hackman 
and into (his golden autumn day, we pass by 
(he little new maroon "bungalow" built at 
the edge of the loading dock. It contains the 
equipment (boiler) that heats up HH. Long 
gone are the frothing steam lines that snaked 
over the campus; in fact, every building now 
has its own system. This has been the 
coldest November l it snowed hist Friday) on 
record — most of the leaves fell off in a hurry 
but we still have some trees supporting dried 
up green leaves (sort of suspended in a time 

There are at least six. sets of stairs leading 
from the upper campus down to the Indus- 
trial Road area and about as many drive- 
ways. Now that the road and all the adjacent 
parking areas are covered with asphalt, there 
still remains the task of painting the stripes 
and filling the planting areas that have been 
created. I met three grounds workers (Pat- 
rick Burns (Tenn.), Angel Segarra (N.Y.), 
and John-Marc Petersen (Mich.) relocating 
topsoil and smoothing out the lumps. It's a 
real treat to glide down the smooth expanse 
of asphalt; the battlefield of ruts and mon- 
strous holes was an aggravation that we can 
now forget. 

On down the road I was impressed with 
the 22 rows of slanting railroad ties that are 
holding the bank behind Miller Hall in place. 

It'saneatengineeringprojeci by itself. Some- 
one had set a tiny potted palm on top of an 
orange-striped barrel — right in the middle of 
the road — it gave a sort of Salvador Dali 
feeling to the whole scene! 

Well, let's cut through Brock Hall and up to 
the art exhibit on the second floor. Melissa 
Hefferlin and David Ahkriev arc displaying 
their works. I decided to pick mv favorite-.: 
for Hefferlin it was "Self-Portrait With Mit- 
ten — 1990." The painting has class and 1 just 
couldn't resisl the red mitten poking oul of the 
top coaf pocket! For Akhiev it was "Tree in 
Valstead, Norway— 1991" because of its 
ruggedness and indomitable spirit and also it 
has j son o| ■'impressionist" feeling about it. 

On up the line, I visited with Dr. Norman 
Gulley beside the huge winter pansy bed in 
front of Miller Hall. He was happy that the 
name of the building has been changed back 
from So-Ju-Conian to Miller. Well, look here 
are two effervescent nursing students striding 
down the promenade: Amy Wrenn (N.C.), 
wearing (T kid you not) a puffy jacket in bold 
geometric patterns of purple, fuchsia and 
yellow; and Rebeca Villanueva (Fla.l in her 
black and maroon outfit. 

Up by the Student Center, Elizabeth San- 
chez (Switz.) and Steve Constantine (Ohio) 
had set up a little table and were selling items 
which you could send to someone you appre-

date. This is Appreciation Day! Mostly 
they had carnations but they also were sell- 
ing apples, peppers, little stacks of cookies, 
and parsnips (that's right!) — they had run 
out of sweet potatoes and onions! These 
goodies had ribbons and a little card saying 
"1 Appreciate You" attached to them. I can 
hardly wait to receive one of those parsnips 
from an appreciative student! 

Inside the Center! found several students 
seated on the "steep bleachers" in front of 
the fire-place watching CNN (there's noth- 
ing else to watch). 1 asked them what they 
intended to do during Thanksgiving vaca- 
tion — some samples: SonyaMilieic is going 
home to Canada and snow; Reuben Sierra 
plans to visit Sea World in Texas and talk to 
Shamir. Debra Nelson (Mich.) is travelling 
to Nebraska; Gena Cownen (Ga.) might 
visit Callaway Gardens. . . most everyone 
else is just happy lobe coins home for some 

And . . . about these pictures: match the 
hats or caps up with the month which you 
think each represents (September, October 
or November). It's no big deal — we're just 
gettingcaughtup. And that just leaves space 
to wish everyone up and down the stairs a 
Happy Thanksgiving.

SA Will Spread 
Christmas Spirit 
At Annual Party 

By Jennifer Speithei 

The Student Association will be spreading 
Christmas spirit at the annual SA Christmas 
party Sunday, Dec. 8, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in 
the Student Center. 

"The theme is 'giving'", said Krisi Clark, 
SA social vice-president. "Bring non-perish- 
able food and canned goods to the party to put 
under the Christmas tree. All proceeds will be 
placed in food baskets to be given to the needy 
families in our community." 

Refreshments will include popcorn, punch, 
candy canes, and apples. Christmas cartoon 
videos will be shown on the television. "It's 
a come and go kind of thing," said Tim 
Burrill, SA finance director. 

"The SA wants to say merry Christmas, so 
we're taking time out to give you a party," said 
Clark. "With the theme of giving, keep in 
mind that the SA is taking time out for you, so 
take time out for others this holiday season."

Go To New York City 

"Room 34? looks awesome." said Fresh- 
man Cindy Rodriguez. 

Men were allowed to roam Thatcher's halls 
for about three hours because of open house in 
thewomen's residence on Nov. 24. Donuts 
and hot chocolate were served at the entrance. 

"Prizes were given away for originality, 
creativity, and neatness in rooms," said 
Women's Dean Lydia Rose. 

Open house has been going on at Southern 
for6to lOyears. switches between 
Thatcher and Talge Halls, but the past two 
years have both been in Thatcher. 

"There didn't seem to be a very big turn- 
out," said Rose. "Maybe because of New 
York trip, but it was a very enjoyable time 

The room that took home the grand prize of 

$40- was 345. The women of the room, seniors 
Holly Metcalf and Judy Clark, said, "We like 
in decorate and just reall) got into it." 

Rose said the room looked more like an 
apartment than a dorm room. "They had 
fabric draped on the walls, matching bed 
spreads, which they made themselves, and 
lights under the bed," said Rose. 

The other winners were: first place. Sopho- 
mores Rebecca Vilkinueva and Wendy Wa- 
ters of room 343; second place, AS Senior Ni- 
cole Brooks and Sophomore Jennifer Hamil- 
ton of 273; and third place. Senior Kelli 
Fluharty and Sophomore Trina Smith of 155.. 

"I had never been away from home and 
dreaded the thought of a dorm room," said 
grand prize winner Metcalf. "So we tried to 
make il look as much like home as we could." 

Thirty-two Southern students packed their 
bags and left for New York City on Nov. 23. 

Under the direction of Art Department Chair 
Bob Garren, the Art Appreciation class left for 
"The Big Apple" to view and understand 
varying forms of art. They visited five muse- 
ums, a symphony, a ballet, and a play. 

Students in the class expressed their enjoy- 
ment of the trip when they returned. "This was 
my third year going," said Junior Chad Nash. 
The play Nunsense, a comedy about five nuns 
raising money to bury their dead sisters, seemed 
to be the favorite experience. "The play was 
the best thing about the trip," said Sophomore 
Christy Hackett. 

Even though the days were packed with 
things to do, the students found time to go 
shopping and sightseeing. "I went to F.A.O. 
Swartz [toy store], and it was great," said 
Junior Tanya Shaw. "And the Macy's Thanks- 
giving Day Parade was interesting in its own 
deflating way. Those poor balloons had more 
holes than Swiss cheese." 

As the week came to a close. All of the 
students were ready to return to Happy Val-

Baby Visits Parenting Class 

By Dehorai 

Southern's parenting class had 
a special visitor a few weeks ago. 

Jessie Oliver Newton, a two 
week old baby girl, came to visit. 
"A lot of students hadn't held an 
infant that young," said class in- 
structor Judy Port. She said that it 
was a good experience for the 

Earlier in the semester, a preg- 
nant mother came to show the 
sonogram of her unborn son. 
When the baby was four weeks 
old, she brought him to the class. 
This made the growth and devel- 
opment stage seem more realistic 
to many of the sutdents. 

Every year, the young men in 


the c!as> set to experience a >mal I 
glimpse of what it's like to be 
pregnant. An empathy belly 
(simulated pregtianc\ harness) is 
brought, and all of the males try it 
on to see how uncnmloriabk- 
pregnancy can be. Port said that 
many of the females ask to try it 
on also. 

Port believes that a parenting 
class is important because "Ev- 
eryone here comes to train for a 
career, and they arc prepared when 
the lime comes. But most people 
become parents without prepara- 
tion." This class, she believes, 
will help prepare her students for 
the life-long job of parenting.

Take Time to

Final tests and projects will be here

He was a member of five clubs and was a

Magic Is Not My Hero! 

Dear Editor: 

I am tired of the American people trying to 
make "Magic" out to be a hero and a role 
model! Role model for whom? "Magic" 
made sport of women. "Magic" and I quote. 
"accommodated as many women as he could." 
Role model for whom? There is a lot to admire 
about "Magic." He was a great athlete, and 
probably the best haskethall player ever, until 
Michael showed up on the scene. 

To quote Sally Jenkins from Sport's Illus- 
trated, "In the age of AIDS, even if a man had 
unsafe sex with 'only' 2,000 women, the 
numbers grow astonishingly. Lei's say those 
2,000 women each slept with five men after- 
ward. The number of those exposed lo the 
possibility of infection begins with a group 
large enough to populate a zip code, then 
grows with a slate-sized one. then lo one the 
size of a small nation thai is truly what is 
meant when it is said that, these days, you do 
not just sleep with one person, you sleep with 
everybody lhat person ever slept with." 

If it had happened to Martina Navralilova. 
would society not be calling her a slul and a 
prostitute? Well, let's call "Magic" uhal he 
was. A great baskelball pla\er — male prosti- 
tute! Sorry, no letter of sympathy from me!

Letters to the Editor 


Dear Ediior: 

Once again a famous American, Magic 
Johnson, Has contracted the virus that causes 
AIDS. Suddenly it is a common topic of 
conversation. But since I've been here at 
Southern, I haven't really heard much said 
about it. You may be asking, What does this 
have to do with me. There can't be anybody 
at Southern who could have AIDS or be doing 
anything to catch AIDS." 

Let me tell you about my experience. I 
went to another Advent ist school and I met an 
Adventist girl. We got involved with each 
other and went all the way. I felt guilty but I 
kept on with the relationship. We broke up 
after a few months. I was not her first or only 
partner and I was at risk for AIDS. 

I tried to put the guilt and fear of AIDS out 
of my mind. I could not escape the fear. It 
consumed me. I could not function socially 
and I withdrew from society. Finally I got 
tired of being scared and went to get tested. 

Making the decision to be tested was the 
hardest thing I have ever done. There are no 
words to express the wrenching fear you face 
while waiting for the test results. All your 
dreams and ambitions seem to be like a sheet 
of plate glass, about to be smashed by a 
baseball bat. You are confronted with the 
realization that your li fe is out of your control. 
You make a stupid choice and you have to face 
the results. It's not mom or dad's fault and it's 
not God's fault. No one is to blame but you. 

If you think sex outside of marriage is all 

Be Careful About AIDS 

fun and games, go down to the Hamilton 
County Health Department's sexually trans- 
mitted disease clinic. They will show you a 
book that has pictures of the symptoms of 
most major STD's. It is not a pretty sight. 

I pray that there is not a major problem with 
STD's at Southern, but we as Adventists have 
to realize that the mountains that surround our 
school do not keep out STD's. Even though 
this is a Christian school there are people who 
are putting themselves at risk for AIDS and 
other STD's. 

I'm not saying to be scared that every guy 
or girl here has a disease. I'm saying don't do 
anything that will put you at risk for AIDS or 
any other STD. Girls, that cute guy that's 
asking you to give in may have great eyes and 
steal your heart but he may also be sick. Guys, 
that girl you want may look great and tell you 
she's okay. She may not be. You cannot tell 
visually that someone has AIDS. Studies 
have shown that most people who are HIV 
positive would not tell you even if they were 
going to have sex with you and you asked 
them directly. 

When someone tries to get you to go all the 
way, ask yoursel I i I the momentary joy of sex 
is a fair trade for your life. That's what it could 
be if they are infected. Think of it this way. 
You made a mistake but have mended your 
ways, and a few years later you meet the guy 
or girl of your dreams. How would you like to 
tell them that you have AIDS? You got it from 

your previous encounter and that your plans 
for your life together are over because you are 
dying. Think about it. Is it worth it? 

We have to realize that God doesn't always 
save us from our stupid choices. He hales 
AIDS along with all other diseases that cause 
pain and death. In most cases, except babies 
with AIDS or hemophiliacs, AIDS results 
from choices. God has told us how to avoid 
getting it. Don't have sex until you get mar- 
ried and be faithful to your spouse. 

God was with me and I tested negative. But 
that is not how it sometimes turns out. If you 
are putting yourself at risk, stop. Stop now. 
It may not be too late for you. You can't 
change the past, but you don't have to add to 
your risk. If you have made some bad deci- 
sions, get checked. A check-up costs $5 at the 
Hamilton County Health Department STD 
clinic by Erlanger Hospital. They will coun- 
sel you about the AIDS test and they will also 
check you for other STD's. Even if you do not 
care what happens to you, think about your 
partner or prospective spouse. Would you 
want the person you love to die because of 
your bad decision' 1 ll'vou have fooled around 
and contracted AIDS and are not honest with 
them that's what could happen. 

Take it from me. It is not worth it to 
endanger your life and future. Sure, sex is a 
great thing, but not when it can kill you and 
your dreams. Think about it.

Respect the Musicians! 

Dear Edii 

For any seasoned concert-goer, the be- 
havior of Southern's students ai the Audubon 
Quartet concert on Nov. 20 was quite disturb- 
ing. It was embarrassing enough that the 
audience could not figure out when the proper 
time for applause was. But I admit that at 
times it is difficult to determine when the lime 
is right for applause at classical < 
is not my compla 

. this 

> the 

music. I got to listen to a w hole lot more. This 
letter is for those of you who talked through- 
out the whole concert. If you do not like 
classical music, don't come to the concerts. 
You have plenty of chances to get yourassem- 
bly credits at other times during the year. How 
can you be so ignorant and disrespectful? If 
you had practiced lor years to perfect a musi- 

cal skill, would you like to have 
talking throughout your performance? And 
how about those of us who go to ihe concerts 
because iveenjov classical music not just tor 
assembly credit.' Do \ on think it's fair for us 
to listen to you chatting? I think not. When I 
go to a concert, I do not want to hear you 
running your big mouths. You think that 
because you whisper, you cannot be heard. 
It's not true. I could clearly hear people 
talking from five pews away. If you cannot 
respect the performers and the other members 
of the audience and be quiet, then have enough 
decency not to come. Let those of us who 
appreciate the concerts enjo\ them in peace. 

If the talking throughout the concert was 
not rude enough, all ol\ on that i an for the door 
as the music slopped showed how ignorant 
you really are. You were in such a hurry to 
leave! thought the church had sudden I \ caught 
fire. You were not even polite enough lo wait 
until the applause had died down. 

What kind of impression do you Ihink 
this made on the quartet who are world class 
musicians. Do you think that it made your 
school look good? I don't Ihink so. 

While this letter has been quite negative 
so far, there is a glimmer of hope. The rest is 
for those of you who did act in a proper 
manner. While about half of the concert 
attenders ran for the door, you gave the musi- 
cians a standing ovation and showed that at 
least some appreciated then hard work and 
fine performance. It is comforting to note that 
at least some o| Southern's students know 

how to act properly in a cultural setting. 

It is pretty sad when we college students 
need to be told load properl\ in public. Even 
after Dr. Wohlers talked about proper concert 
decorum some people just did not seem to 
understand. If that was not embarrassing 
enough, one of the members of the quartet 
stood up after the much interrupted first piece 
and politely chastised the audience. He said 
that the group was glad to be here because it 
reminded them of the University where they 
are in residence. He went on to say. "'If I might 
slip into the role of educator for a moment, I 
hope it will not offend anyone, ft would 
heighten the dramatic effect if you could hold 
your applause until the end of the piece and 
not between movements." 

After the embarrassing moments that 
occurred at this concert the administration 
would do well to think for a moment on the 
appropriateness of enticing students to attend 
cultural events with, in this case, assembly 
credits that could be appl ied to next semester. 
Most of the people who talked throughout the 
concert and rushed out at the end probably 
came only for the assembly credit. Yes, the 
church was filled. But maybe it would have 
been better if ihe concert was held in Acker- 
man Auditorium with the normal one assem- 
bly credit given. I would think that a small 
crowd who is there to enjoy the music would 
be preferable to a large group of students who 
do not like it and are their only for assembly

Have you ever wondered how ii 
might be if people wouldn't talk 
(rash when playing a game? 

When I say "talk trash." I don't 
mean joking around with a good 
buddy about how you may have 
dunked on him or spiked down his 
throat. What I'm referring to here 
is when others who you hardly 
know are having to argue about 
everything you call. 

It'seems that we have a bigger 
problem with this in our pick-up 
games, whatever sport, than I've 
witnessed on public courts. For 
example, last weekend I played 
quite abit of beach volleyball with 
guys who I've never seen before. 
Yet, when a call was made, they 
respected and didn 'I even question 

This topic is frequently brought 
up, but it seem that few pay atten- 
tion to it. It's not everybody. But 
only a few people can ruin a perfect 
game for everyone else, Let'sstart 
showing that we're out to have a 
good time, and not out to knock out 
our opponenis. If you want to 
tight, get into boxing orsomething. 
We've all got to realize that most 
of the calls against us art 
right, so respect them!

Millie White Plays With a Possum 

His name is Baxter. He is gray with black 
highlights. He has a long pointed pink nose 
and black beady eyes. His long snake-like tail 
trails behind him as he walks. He is a nine 
pound possum and his owner is junior social 
work major Millie White. 

"In the middle of last April, I was driving 
home from working at the Library one night 
when my headlights caught a possum's eyes," 
says While. "1 realized it was a baby so I

became full of energy and started running 
around inside the car. "When I got home, I 
couldn't find him." says White. "My parents 
thought I was crazy when I told them I had a 
possum in the car and there was none to be 
seen. He must have been hiding under a seat." 
It was not until an hour later that he was found 
sitting on the floor of the car. 

White kept Baxter in a box for several days 
until she was able to get a small cage from 
Charles Robertson, ihe biology teacher at 
Collegedale Academy. "Every time I would 
look in the box. Bauer would hiss at me,"says 

"To begin with, he wouldn't eat, but then I 
found out he liked applesauce," says White. 
Besides applesauce, he also likes cat food, 
kiwi fruit, bananas, pizza, and fig newtons. 

When White left for Cohutta Springs Camp 
in the summer, Baxter went with her. White 
worked in the nature department and let the 
campers enjoy Baxter.

E. G. White Room Holds Unpublished Writings 

Twenty-one thick black binders sit on a file 
cabinet in the Accessions Room of the McKee 
Library. Each one is numbered." Some bear 
markings like Last Day Events — 1 . They are 
filled with page after page of photocopied 
manuscripts and letters. Normally these bind* 
ers and their contents would not merit much 
attention. But they contain something of 
interest. They have been the source of a well- 
developed rumor on Southern's campus. The 
latest version sa\sihai the library is holding an 
unpublished Ellen G. White manuscript that 
was entrusted to its care until the end time 
when it would be published. 

Like most rumors, this rumor is partially 
based on fact. The fact is that there are 
unpublished Ellen G. White materials in 
Southern's Library. But alas, for lovers of 
conspiracy, they have not been hid or kept 
from the church. They are photocopies made 
from original E.G. White letters and manu- 
scripts held by the White Estate in Washing- 
ton D.C. The 21 binders contain all of the 
unpublished E.G. White materials which deal 
with end time events. 

E. G. White Room. 


Everyday Life- 
Sophomore Kirk Clements changes the sign at Duffs Service 


The copies were given by the 
White Estate to Dr. Leo Van 
Dolson and his wife Bobbie to 
compile into book form. Accord- 
ing to Van Dolson, the compila- 
tion of the manuscript has been a 
long-running project. At least 
three other editors worked part 
time on the project before it was 
entrusted to the Van Dolsons. 

Van Dolson and his wife 
worked on editing and compiling 
the manuscript for three years. 
"Portions of the manuscripts have 
been printed in othcrcompilalions 
or in manuscript releases. We 
removed duplications and re- 
checked the manuscript against 
the originals," said Van Dolson. 

When the Van Dolsons moved 
to Collegedale from Maine, the 
copies camewith-them. "Last- 
year three Southern students or- 
ganized the copies and put them 

into chronological order," said 
Van Dolson. 

"The manuscript has been ed- 
ited into final form and has been 
submitted to Pacific Press," said 
Van Dolson. He went on to add 
that the book will be published in 
the middle of April. 

"The manuscript copies will be 
put out in the Heritage Room as 
soon as they are organized," said 
Van Dolson. This amounts to 
approximately 40,000 pages of 
handwritten or typewritten manu- 
scripts ;ind letters. 

The book that the Van Dolsons 
edited will not contain any major 
surprises. It will, however, "fillin 
some details," said Van Dolson. 
"It contains a beautiful descrip- 
tion of the New Earth, and some 
details about tidal waves and earth- 
quakes in the end time.

Reprinted from the Southern Accent, December 8, 1977 

One of two motor homes 
loaded with a group of SMC 
art and behavioral science 
students drove off the road 
into an embankment and 
overturned at 6:15 Sunday 
morning, Nov. 20. 

The 20-odd students and 
five faculty members com- 
prised a study tour group 
bound for New York City to 
visit the major art museums 
and receive one hour of 
credit for Art Appreciation 

The group had been driv- 
ing since early in the eve- 
ning of the 19th. 

Graham Cooper, former 
student of SMC. was at the 
wheel when he dozed and 
drove the 73 Champion mo- 
bile camper onto the left 
shoulder of Highway 81 in 
Virginia, two miles north of 
the New Market exit. Coo- 
per swung the camper back 
on the highway, overcor- 
rected, and bounced into the 
embankment on the right 
shoulder, flipping the ve- 
hicle onto its left side. 

The impact of the abrupt 
stop threw Greg Vital, Irene 
Wilkenson, Jackie Morgan, 
and six-year-old Rob Gar- 
ren through the front wind- 
All the passengers sus- 
tained only minor bruises 

and abrasions; Cooper frac- 
tured three fingers. No one 
was seriously injured. 

"I saw it coming," said 
Cindy Bata. "I woke up as 
he was swerving. After it 
happened, T walked out of 
the windshield. Ididn'teven 
realize it was the windshield. 
It looked like a door." 

"I was stuck in the top 
bunk. Ihadtoyellforsome- 
one to come get me out." 
said Ruth Garren, wifeof art 
professor Garren. "Fm sur- 
prised I came out with my 
brains. Right near my head 
was a jagged hole through 
the side of the camper." 

The mobile home, be- 
longing to Dr. Rudolf Auss- 
ner and Fred Fuller, was 
badly damaged. The New 
Market police estimated the 
damage at $20,000. 

The students were taken 
to North Shenandoah Me- 
morial Hospital by the New 
MarketRescue squad, where 
they were checked and 
treated for abrasions, then 

"We were lucky." Bata 
commented, "that Shenan- 
doah Valley Academy was 
only a few miles away. They 
rented a bus to (is "and drove 
us to New York." 

The accident delayed the 
group 13 hours. 


I Love This Country! 

Andy Nash reports from the Accent's Thai Bureau 

I love this country. I love the Thai 

people. I love leaching English. And I love 
all the little episodes each new day brings, 
like when I ask a nine-year-old named 

A"un lo spell "Ameri 

:a" and he 

ushes up 

!o the hoiird and wri 

cs "U.S.A. 

• HOW- 

EVER. . .

I ve never 

spent so 

much lime with the same person. Jeff Emdc 
Jeff is my roommate, co-worker, dining 
partner, tennis opponent, motorcycle pas- 
senger, traveling companion and the list 
goes on. Jeff and I even bum our mouths on 
the same Thai dishes of ridiculously hot 
food together. 

And since my last article. Jeff and I have 
taken two big trips lo Singapore and to the 
tropical island of Phuket as well. Sin- 
gapore is truly an amazing place, and well 
worth the 20-hour bus ride ($14) on which 

the air-conditioner was jammed on refrigera- 
tor mode. (We all had blankets draped over 
our heads to stay warm — it looked like a con- 
vention of ghosts. I Singapore offers an out- 
standing Bast-West mix. with everything from 
Chinatown and Little India to luxury hotels 
and a Hard Rock Cafe. Jeff and i highly 
recommend you visit this island nation over 
Christmas break.

a piece of the Garden of Eden broken off. The 
beautiful hills and sand> lies are unbeat-

based on Phuket. Jeff enjoyed snorkeling 
with a rainbow of fish in the Andaman Sea

English students stick around for Bible

happening here in Thailand. The ne\t big

Duffs Service Station Closes 

Southern Looks 
Like Christmas 

By Michelle Lashier 

Various campus locations have given 
Christmas a personal touch this year. Some 
out-of-the-ordinary decorations are making 
the holiday season a little more interesting. 

Mabel Wood Hall honors all SC music 
graduates' by adorning their names on a tree. 
Music department chair Marvin Robertson 
estimates that there are several hundred oma- 

The communications club decorated a 
special tree for the Journalism and Communi- 
cation Department. At a club party, members 
made ornaments, many of which pertain to the 
communication Field. Decorations include a 
small paper TV, newspaper streamers, aricT 
lots of broadcasting tape. 

The Campus Kitchen went "all out" with 
mistletoe, lights, wreaths and bows. Workers 
can even be seen wearing Santa hats. Fresh- 
man religion major Juan Rodriguez said the 
decorations are "very red, green, silver — very 

Duff's service Station permanently closed 
last Friday, Dec. 13. The property is owned by 
Southern College and the station was leased to 
Don Duff. The college board decided to close 
the station because of expensive improve- 
ments needed soon on the four underground 
gas tanks. 

"It's not Financially feasible or worth the 
risk to keep it open," said Dale Bidwell, vice 
president of Finance. Bidwell said the tanks 
would have had to be replaced by 1998 to 
comply with Environmental Protection 
Agency regulation, but there is a possibility of 
an underground leak now. Also, the tanks 
must be tested and insured each year. 'To 
keep the old tanks in the ground and test them 
yearly makes the cost prohibitive," Bidwell

said. "Especially coupled with the fact that 
they would have had to be replaced by 1 998." 

Bidwell said it was not an easy decision for 
the school. "We discussed all the factors. A 
large part of the consideration was Mr, Duff, 
and the fact that the community has been 
going there for years. We had to face the cold, 
hard facts and ask "What is the return for the 
College?'" Bidwell said. "I feel bad that a 
person in the community has his business 
terminated, but the facts were discussed with 
Mr. Duff, and he understands." 

"They (college board) made the decision 
and I'll abide by it." Duff said. "But I was 
surprised they wanted to close it so quick. I 

See Duff, p. 6 

Second semester registration will be 
held Jan. 5 and 6. 

Students who have pre-rcgistered may 
come to the gymnasium from 3 p.m. to 5 
p.m. Sunday Jan. 5, and from 9 a.m. until 
noon Jan. 6. Pre-regislered students, 
new/transfer students, and those who did 
not pre-register may register from 2 p.m. 
to 5 p.m. on Monday Jan. 6. 

Students con still drop or add a class 
forsecond semester. This should bedone 
before Dec. 19. or they must register for 
a drop/add form. 

Registrar Mary Elam reminds that at 
the end of the day on Jan. 6, pre-regts- 
tered classes sill be lost if they are not 
registered into the computer. 

"If a student wants a class that closed 
early, be sure to check it again because 
some classes open up," saidElam. More 
than 90 percent of the student body pre- 
registered and can enjoy the fact that reg- 
istration will probably only take 5 to 10 
minutes if they don't forget theirregistra- 
tion pass and I.D. card. 




Southern Students Will Have 
a New Way To Earn Money 

'i \hatl:,i>. -. 

A new factory is going to be 
built close to Southern College, 
providing a possibility for stu- 
dents to earn good money. 

Southern College and McKee 
Foods Corporation (formerly 
McKee Baking Co.) have decided 
to build a box factory. The build- 
ing is being funded by the Com- 
mittee of 100, which is giving 
$350,000 for the new plant. 

"The new factory will be some- 
where close to the school and near 
Mckee," said Dale Bidwell, sen- 
iorvice-presidentoffinance. "My 
desire is to have the building done 
before summer." 

Ruth Garren. communications 
coordinator at McKee, said that 
the box factory will be similar to 
the factory in Arkansas which 
employs Ozark Academy stu- 

dents. Bidwell said the number of 
students needed to work at the 
factory is not known yet, because 
they don't know the length of the 
shifts. "If the shifts are 4 hours, 
then we will need less students 
than if the shifts were 2 hours," 
said Bidwell. 

The employees working at the 
new box factory will be sorting 23 
differentsizesofboxes. Theboxes 
will also be sorted according to 
quality, said Bidwell. 

"The administration feels the 
new plant will be a benefit to 
students, because the plant will 
have fewer machines and it won't 
be hard labor," said Bidwell. "It 
will especially be a benefit be- 
cause it will help students pay for 
their schooling."

Student Missionaries 
Are Preparing To Leave 

y Deborah Longford 

Nineteen Southern College 
students are preparing for a years 
service in a foreign country. 

Student Missionaries (SM's) 
have reserved their calls and are 
beginning to think about leaving. 
Bui before they go. a lot must be 
done, forms must be filled out, 
visLis obtained, and plane reserva- 
tions made. Money is one of the 
biggest worries. The students are 
ivspnnsible lor their plane fare to 
the assigned country. 

Students go as missionaries lo 
help spread the gospel to all the 
world. But the jobs they do while 
spreading the gospel vary. Some 
will teach school, some will be 

nurses, and others will help with 
evangelistic efforts. SM's will be 
sent to Russia, Poland, Finland 
Korea, Spain, and the Marshall' 

Task force is another aspect of 
student missions. Sophomore 
Chris Blake will be working at 
Monterey Bay Academy in Cali- 
fornia. More positions for tusk 
force(nextyear) will be available 

The students will be gone for 
one year which for most of them 
means the holidays too. It may 
not be easy, but they feel that the 
chance to serve the Lord is worth 
the price.

Duff has been in the gas station for 38 
years. "It 's all I've ever done, really," he said. 
He said he won't be opening another station 
elsewhere. "The business has changed so 
drastically from how it used to be. Before, 
stations waited on everybody, and it was full- 
service. Now, there are so many Golden 
Gallons and RaceTracs, and I couldn't com-

been working on a book about World War II, 
and in the immediate future will spend time 

The service station site will become home 
to Southern's Motor Pool. Bidwell said, "An 
architect is in the process of drawing-up plans 
to incorporate the front of the station with the 
rest of Fleming Plaza." He said two above 
ground tanks will be installed for use by the 
Motor Pool only. Above-ground tanks are 
less expensive to operate, and the college will 
be exempt from federal tax on gasoline as an 
educational institution. (Duffs was not ex- 

"I'll miss seeing the people," Duff said. 
"I'll also miss my sign." Duff was known for 
placing thought-for-the-day messages and bits 
of philosophy on his sign, he said he came up 
with some of the sayings, and many other 
people contributed others. 

"This station's educated my children and 
helped a few others through school, too," Duff 
said. There were four Southern students work- 
ing there this semester. Duff said the station 
generates a$20,000 student payroll each year. 
"I've had as many as seven or eight students 
working here at a time," he said. 

"I wanted this station to be a place for some 
Southern students to come after school, and 
many did. I sold a lot of drinks and snacks." 

The station has operated in the present 
facility since 1963. Prior to that, the first 
campus service station building was built in 
1919 as a blacksmith shop and later became a 
service station. 

The present station was managed by Victor 
Taylor from 1963 to 1965. It was then leased 
to Beecher Smith from 1965 to 1986. The

Hefferlin Spends Thanksgiving 
Talking About Physics 

By Arthur Chiimh, , Unt: 

Ray Hefferlin, chair of the Physics Depart- 
ment at Southern, spent part of Thanksgiving 
break doing what he enjoys most — talking 
about physics. 

Hefferlin visited the National Institute for 
Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, 
Md. on Nov. 28. He talked with Dr. Chase, 
director of Standard Reference Data, as well 
as Dr. Iorish and Dr. Chekhovskii from the 
Institute of High Temperatured in Moscow. 
"I went to Washington to learn more about 
where to find good data and how to use it, "

contained information I didn't know students 
could use on their projects." 

Five students; Katie Linderman, Chris 
Carlson, Greg Camp, Rick Cavanaugh and

that require computer databases. According 
to Hefferlin, the trip was very successful. In 
addition to providing new data, additional 
suggestions on how the project experiments 
might be run were offered by the Russian

people downgrading Magic 
Johnson because of his sexual 

women. Magic made a mistake 
and has admitted to it, but haven 't 
we all made mistakes? Have we 

admitted to some of our mistakes? 
How can anyone say Magic is not 
a role model? I can say that Magic 
has been a belter role model than 
quite a few people. Does Larry 

Bird have basketball camps for 
inner city children? Does he raise 
money every summer lor college 
funds for people who are not able 
to pay for college? 

What difference does it make 
if Magic had s

spread anyway even if he had s 
with one woman. The point is, he 
didn't practice safe sex and now is 
paying the price. Have we all 

practiced sale sex in every sexual 
encounter that we've had? 

People act as if he is the only 
one who has spread the virus 
across the United States. What 
about the woman (whoever she is) 
who gave him the virus? If we 
knew who she was, would people 
downgrade her? Or what if Larry 
Bird had the HIV virus? Would 
he get all this negative feedback 
from the American people? I 

I personally don't think if 
Martina Navratilova contracted 
the HIV virus, she would be called 
a slut or a prostitute considering 
the fact that she is alesbian. Magic 
didn't have to-tell anyone he had 
the HIV virus, he didn't have to 
become a spokesperson, either. 
He could have kept everything a 
secret just as Rock Hudson did. 
But he didn't and it takes a great 
man to sacrifice his image and 
integrity to let people know and 
become more aware of the HIV 
virus. He doesn't want sympathy

Show Up 

To the 



Perhaps the most irritating thing in 
intramurals is when a person signs up 
to play on your team and then never 
shows up to a single game! 

Intramurals are here for our enjoy- 
ment, and that means everybody's 
enjoyment, and that means everybody's 
enjoyment. When people decide that 
they may not have time to play ball, so 
that they can go wash theircar orsome- 
thing, it becomes very frustration to 
the rest of the team. It's not fairto the 
team to have to go through a losing, 
disheartening season because a couple 
key players decide not to show up! If 
you can't show up, don't sign up! At 
least let the captains know ahead of 
time so they can know how to schedule 

This is not being written to discour- 
age people from joining intramurals, 
yet it is being written with hopes that 
some people will show the courtesy of 
letting it be known when they can and 
can't show up! Things can be worked 
around some schedule conflicts, but 
they have to be known first. Teams are 
put together with the intentionsofbeing 
as equal as possible and when those 
few people decide they are aboveshow- 
ing up for the teams sake, the whole 
league is thrown out of sync!

Music blared from all corners of the Omni

Three On Three Basketball 
Tournament To Be Played 

On Jan. 19, the physical edu- 
cation department will hold the 
inaugural three on three basket- 
ball tournament. 

In order to play, a team must be 
submitted to the front desk in the 
gym by Tuesday Jan. 14. Along 
with the team, the color of shirts 
each team plans on wearing must 
be submitted. Intramural shirts 
are recommended, but other col- 
ors may be worn. Color picking 
will be first come, first serve. 

Rules include: at least one 
player under six foot on each team, 
all baskets are one point except 
those behind the three point line 
which will be counted as two 
points, each match is two out of 
three in order to advance in win- 
ners bracket, and double elimina- 
tion. The rules are subject to

from the launching position. 

The 10 minute show, which 
included the setting up and taking 
down of the mats, ended with all 
of the gymnasts forming a circle 
in the center of the mats. The 
circle caught everyone's attention 
as it built to its peak of three tiers 
high. "It's always exciting to 
perform for such a large crowd," 
said Steve Jaecks, assistant coach. 

"The excitementbuilds and builds 
as the crowd cheers. It's espe- 
cially thrilling for those who were 
here for the first time." It's an 
awing experience." 

"We always get a bit nervous 
just before we go out onto the 
floor," explainedTedEvans.Gym

ness dies quickly. I feel that we 
did a superb job, and the crowd let 
it be known. 

On Sunday Moming, Dec. 8, 
the annual "three man volleyball 
tournament" was held in the 
Southern college Gymnasium. 

The competition started at 7:45 
a.m. with roll call, and at this time 
in the day , very few people seemed 
enthused about some "Power 
volleyball". As the day pro- 
gressed, the tournament became a 
"text book" case with the bump, 
set, and spike almost every play. 

All the teams seemed pretty even, 
but it came down to Bowe's team, 
which consisted of Rob Dickin- 
son, Scott Bowes, and Cary Greer, 
and Adam Perez's team, James

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas 

Well, it's starting to look a lot like Christ- 
mas everywhere you go. People have decked 
the halls with boughs of ho!l_\ .jingle bells, and 
dragged Santas out to every street corner. 

You cannot enter a mall without being 
blasted with Christmas music or without 
having 10 salesclcrks breathing down your 
neck while you are trying to shop. 

In Collegedale you can tell it's getting 
close to Christmas because people are starting 
to sing "Let it Pour, Let it Pour, Let it Pour." 

But none of these things have put me in the 
Christmas spirit. I have even been tempted to 
put live reindeer on Thatcher Hall's porch to 
make it seem more like Christmas. 

Even the Christmas tree lighting didn't put 
me in a jolly mood. I kept trying to get Santa 
to throw candy canes my way but he ignored 
me until I wasn't looking and ihenhe threw a 
fistful of them smack against my head. Can 
you sue Santa? 

Although 1 know there is no Santa, why do 
I feel like someone's always watching me to 
see if I'm being naughty or nice? I guess it's 
just the deans. 

Maybe when radio stations start playing 
my favorite Christmas song over and over I 
will feel more like Santa's little helper. Idon't 
know why it is, but the song "When Grandma 

Got Run Over By a Reindeer" really makes 
me feel sentimental for Christmas. 

Whenever I start thinking about Christmas, 
I always remember back to when I was achild. 
Back then 1 would get into the Christmas spirit 
sometime around August. Christmas morn- 
ing I would wake Mom and Dad up at 5 a.m. 
Now my parents have to wake me up or I 
would sleep through Christmas. 

Christmas at our house when I was little 
was something special, if not a little strange. 
We had many Christmas traditions. For ex- 
ample, before we could open any presents, my 
Dad would march us into the kitchen and 
make us eat a big bowl of hot oatmeal (which 
none of us could stand ) before we couldeat the 
real breakfast of cinnamon buns. Mom would 
usually take pity on us and help us get rid of it 
when my Dad wasn't looking. No, I don't 
know why Dad insisted on us eating oatmeal.

Santa Goes on African Safari 

, <>,„, 

While Americans eagerly await the arrival 
of Santa Claus and the first snow to mark the 
Christmas season, Africans on the other hand, 
await the arrival of Father Christmas and 
hopefully the first summer rains. 

It would seem that Santa Claus finds a 
greater pleasure in shimmying down chim- 
neys in Tennessee, than Father Christmas 
would, parking his reindeer on an African 

Maybe it has something to do with the 
climate. I forone could imagine Father Christ- 
mas' discomfort, dressed in fur-lined jacket, 
knee-high snow boots and furry cap, arriving 
on Christmas Eve amidst summer tempera- 
tures of between 85- 1 00 degrees. Unless of 
course he indulges himself and his reindeer 
with a healthy dose of coolant on their com 
flakes the day before. Maybe Mrs. Christmas 
(Wife of Father Christmas) will eventually get 
around to designing a Christmas outfit some- 
where in the lines of Crocodile Dundee, only 
m red. and instead of using reindeer and a sled, 
Father Christmas could use a covered wagon 
pulled by zebra. 

The problem with the Christmas doldrums 
in Africa however, does not have much to do 
with his attire. The problem lies with the 

Certainly around this time of year, Afri- 
cans are indulging themselves in the same 
shopping frenzy as Americans. Gifts are 
smaller and fewer due to an unhealthy econ- 
omy, but there will be gi I is under the tree. The 
tree is unlike anything you would be accus- 
tomed to in America. It may take the form of 

a wilted pine branch or branches tied together 
or, in some cases, a healthy branch from a 
Jacaranda tree. Whatever the choice, there 
will be some green object of nature with light 
bulbs and decorations adorning each living- 

Ifyou're looking for an abundance of deco- 
rations on the trees and doors, you're looking 
in the wrong place. Incline your head towards 
the ceiling and you will be amazed at the 
quantity of streamers, tinsel, and objects au 
naturale, dangling above your head. 

No time is wasted with breakfast on Christ- 
mas day. After exchanging quick hugs and 
kisses to all present, the gifts are attacked. 
Usually the eldest child will read out the 
names on the cards, concluding with a now 
mundane phrase like, "And it's from . . ." 
Tension mounts at this point. The youngest 
child is appointed gift reader's little helper 
and dutifully bounces over to the fortunate 
whose name has been read. 

Paper is ripped to shreds and each giver is 
once again thanked with a kiss. Regardless of 
how impractical the gift is, everyone is re- 
minded that. "It's the thought that counts." As 
if this will compensate lor the disappointment 
at receiving six pairs of sox (socks) the colour 
(color) of which seldom match your ward- 
Empty boxes are col lected and placed back 
under the now rather tired l< » iking green thing 
in the cornerof the house. AfteralLDecember 
is the hottest month of the year. 

Christmas lunch comes just in time to res- 
cue you from total boredom. The lunch table 

is decked in all the finery, a household can 
posses. The best cutlery, the best crockery, 
the best table linen, the best glasses. Crackers 
(Crackers are things you pull and they go— 
BANG!) are placed atop Christmas hats in 
each sideplate and serviettes (napkins) cen- 
tered on plates. Lunch starts off with every- 
one pulling their crackers. This gets everyone 
scrambling in search of the tiny objects which 
eject themselves on to the dining-room carpet. 
You now have to demonstrate the use of your 
prize. This joviality soon gives way to a 
feeding frenzy not unlike sharks to a victim. 

The coup de gras arrives in flames. The 
Christmas pudding is cut and everyone chews 
very delicately so as not to break any teeth on 
the five cent pieces hidden inside. Each dis- 
covered nickel is accompanied with a louder 
than necessary, "I got one!" 

The transition from feeding frenzy to post 
lunch anaesthesia (anesthesia) is certainly an 
unexplained, but worth studying phenome- 
non. People seem to pick their sports with 
chameleon- like eyes while picking nickels 
fromtheirdesscrls. Each participant homes in 
on a predetermined spot — and passes out cold. 

By this time Father Christmas, has shed a 
few pounds and probably consumed huge 
quantities of Galorade. The reindeer are suf- 
fering from ban slip (shedding i and the metal 
ridges of the sled, loo hot to touch. But there 
is no chance of rest for the fat man. He must 
once again climb into his trusty sled and mush

Greg Bean Will Teach Guitar 
For Credit Next Semester 

By Jennifer J as 

"There was a need for a more specialized 
class," said Bean. "The number of people 
wanting a church-related guitar style has 
grown." He said the class primarily appeals to 
religion majors, but also music majors, or 
anyone interested in strumming campfire-ori-

Senior religion major Virgil Covel is cur- 
rently taking rhythm guitar from Bean and has 
been able to spend some class time on reli- 
gious songs. "The course he's planning for

process of opening the presents, 
only one person could open a 
present at a time while everyone 
elsewatched. Yes.inabigfamily 
this takes hours. But it made us 
believe that we had gotten more 
than we actually did. Ithinkthat's 
why Dad did it that way. 

When we lived in Hawaii, going 
to get the family Christmas tree 
wasnobigdeal. Wewouldjustgo 
down to the hall closet and get out 
the box and assemble the good old 
fake tree. Christmas trees in 
Hawaii were scarce and so they 
cost more than all our presents 

It wasn't until we moved to 
Pennsylvania that I experienced 
having a real Christmas tree for 
Christmas. Unfortunately, one of 
my older brothers would insist on 
going to the woods and getting us 
one. So we would end up with 
trees taller than our ceiling, wider 
that our living room and uglier 
than our dog. To this day I still 
don't know what anice real Christ- 
mas tree looks like. 

A couple of days before Christ- 
mas, the same brother who picked 

out the Christmas tree would 
always find where Mom had pains- 
takingly hidden the presents. Ifhe 
couldn't figure out what was in- 
side the ones with his name on it, 
he would unwrap them, see what 
they were, and then wrap them up 
again. For years my Mom could 
never figure out where all the left- 
over wrapping paper went or why 
Steve's presents seemed to be in 
different wrapping paper than she 
could have swom she had wrapped 

Nowadays, my brother just asks 
for money months before Christ- 
mas instead of any presents. And 
since we are now the only kids 
still at home, I'm usually the only 
one who sits around opening any 
presents Christmas moming. 

Well, now that I've finished 
this article, 1 finally feel in the 
Christmas spirit. I think this 
Christmas I might get up at 5 a.m., 
eat a big bowl of hot oatmeal and 
sing the "Twelve Days of Christ- 
mas" in Hawaiian, just for old 
times sake. On Christmas Eve I 
might even open all my presents 
and see what they are. Igfij

Up and Down the Stairs... 

There's a lot of Christinas around! Let's 
find some! Starting with the banners at- 
tached to all the lamp posts along Camp 
Road as it meanders through Collegedale, 
then the Campus Christmas Tree itself which 
was fumed on recently for the first time this 
season. (Actually the lights remain on all 
the time because it's a real problem to hook 
up with the street lights, in wlrich case they 
would be controlled by a timer, and it's too 
much bother to assign someone to unlock 
the fuse boxes twice a day to turn the lights 
onandoff). The best display of wreaths are 
at the Church (at least seven at [he main 
entrance not to mention the gigantic ones in 
the atrium — quite stunning). 

In the Student Center, there's a huge red 
Merry Christmas surrounded by a blizzard 
of artificial snow plus some other fuzzy 
stuff. In Herin Half (nursing), there's a tree 
in the lobby decorated with little iridescent 
bows, a big poof on top, pink and maroon 
balls, and strings of "pearls" looped around. 
A big wreath and garlands with huge ma- 
roon velvet bows decorate the balcony. The 
darkpinkpoinsettiapiant, in a basket beside 

the wing-tip chairs, sets it all off. 

Down the promenade I met two winners in 
what could have been the "Miss Christmas 
Contest:" Elizabeth Herman in a very bright 
red sweater (she's attending a family reunion 
during vacation) and Andrea Bowman in an 
equally bright red coat (she's staying home in 
Chattanooga). Seated around one of those 
wrought iron tables on the Student Center 
porch were Amy Durkin (SQ in a Swiss-style 
sweater (she's getting her wisdom teeth 
pulled), Marca Age (NC) all in blue (she's 
taking care of her baby sister), and Tracie 
Jones (TN) all decked out in festive purple. 

OK— up by the library an international 
crew was spreading mulch around all the 
bushes and trees: Jeffery Vellanueva from 
Puerto Rico, Sam Scengchanch from Thai- 
land. Jon-Marc Peterson from Mich., and Bella 
Kobor from Hungary (we talked about the 
recent events in eastern Europe and the effect 
which Communism has had on the people). 
Hey, I just spotted a girl carrying "two-by- 
fours" across the parking lot and into Lynn 
Wood Hall— a secret present in the makine, 

By E.O. Grundset 

...In December 

Inside the library, they've set up an old- 
fashioned parlor scene complete with ra- 
dio, rocking chair holding two white teddy 
bears, a library table with some homed- 
rimmed glasses resting on the opened vol- 
ume of "Great Bibliographies" (the lace 
doily adds an authentic touch). And beside 
it all a tree decorated with lots of tinsel 
garlands and red velvet bows. I decided I 
ought to leave when my eye caught the 
poster admonishing. "Blessed are those 
that return library materials!" 

Later on that night I drove back from 
Hamilton Place Mall and was dazzled by 
the four triangles of lights high above City 
Hall, the shining windows flanking the 
Campus Tree (my favorites are the big star 
on second floor of Thatcher and the^geo- 
metric tree made out of red lights in aTalge 
window), and most impressive, the display 
of candles in every window of Wright Hall. 
With all these decorations and Christmas 
spirit in the air. everyone Up and Down the 
Stairs and far beyond will surely have a 
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Southern College Starts its Winter Semester 



Volume 47, Number 9 

January 16, 1992 

Gilligan Will Visit Southern 

Gilligan's Island premiered in 1964 and is 

till seen by about 2.5 million viewers every 

I day. Twenty-eight years later. Bob Denver 

(Gilligan) will visit Southern for the Student 

Association Gilligan's Island Party. 

Replacing the Beach Party, the Gilligan's 
Island Party will be in the lies Physical Edu- 
cation Center on Saturday, Jan. 18, from 10 
1 P-m. to 2 a.m. Denver will host some events 
including a Gilligan look-alike contest. He 
""'ill also sign pictures and T-shirts. 

The gym will be re-created to look like 
nlligan's Island; half will be inhabited and 
the other half uninhabited, said Krisi Clark, 

. "You won't be able 

SA social 

to recognize it." 

The idea for the party came from "John 
Boskind's (SA parliamentarian) deprived 
childhood." said Clark. "The officers were 
talking in a meeting, and somehow, John 
mentioned he only watched Gilligan's Island 
as a child. So, the Gilligan's Island theme 
popped into the discussion." 

"The party will be a combination of high 
adventure and the carnival idea," said Clark. 
Attractions will include: zip line, barrel roll.

Summer Camps 
Recruit at Southern 

By Jennifer Speichcr 

Water skiing plus horses plus crafts plus 
fun programs equal a great summer camp. 
However, the equation is not complete with- 
out a good staff to make all the elements of 
summer camp a reality for kids. 

The Chaplain's office and CARE Minis- 
tries helped five summercamp directors come 
to Southern's campus this week to recruit. 
These camps included Camp Alamisco from 
the Gulf States Conference, Cohutta Springs 
Camp from the Georgia-Cumberland Confer- 
ence, Indian Creek Camp from the Kentucky- 
Tennessee Conference, Camp Kulakua from 
Florida, and NOSOCA Pines Ranch from the 
Carolina Conference. 

"Southern College is a great place to find 
those hardworking, dedicaled Christian youth 
that make up the summer camp staff of the 
Southern Union Conference," said Ken Ro- 
gers, chaplain.

Southern To Hold World Missions Week 

If a student has ever given consideration to 
mission work, annual World Missions Week 
Jan. 27 to Jan. 3 1 will help give a glimpse of 
what is involved. At least six speakers and 
professionals in Adventist mission-related 
careers will be on campus, and some events in 

i with the week will be held begin- 
ning Friday, Jan. 17. 

"We bring these people here to expose 
students to what's happening in missions all 
over the world," said campus chaplain Ken 
Rogers. "We want to encourage students to 
join mission work." 

According to Rogers, the purposeof World 
Missions Week is to expose Southern students 
to the philosophy and programs of Adventist 
world missions. "We try to vary the areas 
represented each year so the students get a 
good taste of what's going on in all areas," 
Rogers said. 

Currently there are 52 active student mis- 
sionaries from Southern College. Rogers said 
that World Missions representatives "like to 
take people from Southern because we have a 
good reputation for mission work." 

Rogers said he expects 10 to 12 students 
will express a genuine interest in becoming a 
student missionary as a result of World Mis- 
sions Week. "I hope students will catch a 
glimpse of the worldwide mission projects, 
and that some students will consider spending 
time as student missionaries. But if one stu- 
dent's awareness is heightened, then the week 
would be worth it," Rogers said. 

Some of the speakers will be: Larry 
Colbum, secretary of the Far Eastern Divi- 
sion; Ms. Pat Gusion. recruiter from Thailand 
Mission; Ray James, youth department direc- 
tor of the Far Eastern Division; Mark Butler, 
recruiter from the Polish Union; Maitland 
DiPento, director of ADRA (Adventist De- 
velopment and Relief Agency); and Jan Yak- 
kish, representing Biesda. Mexican-Ameri- 
can border language schools. 

Part of DiPcnto's topic will the possibility 
of a Southern College six-week humanitarian 
project that would involve eight to 1 2 students 
and lake place right after graduation, 1993. At 
this point, the project is teiiiaiive, depending 
on the interest level. Rogers said, "We're 
excited about the possibility of the summer 
project. It would give students exposure and 
experience to mission work, and Southern has 
never done anything like that before." The 
project would be Southern College's gift to a 
particular community, in conjunction with 

Trie World Missions Week schedule is as 
follows: Joint worship at the church with 
Colbum (Monday, Jan. 27 at 7 p.m); assem- 
bly in the church with DiPento (Thursday, 
Jan. 30, 1 1 a.m.); vespers in the church with 
DiPento (Friday. Jan. 31.); Sabbath School 
with Guston (Sabbath, Jan. 18); Sabbath 
School with James (Sabbath, Jan. 25): and 
TaJge Hall worship with Butler (Wednesday, 
Jan. 29, 7 p.m. and 10:45 p.m.). 


The fair is sponsored by Southern College. 
Lee College, Covenant College. Tennessee 
Wesleyan College, Bryant College, and Ten- 
nessee Temple University.

nities '92 should stop by the Testing and

sayA'Ofi? (sorryforbeingsographic). 
But after a while. I get into my schedule 
and start to enjoy college life. And I 

guess that's what I'm trying to say 

enjoy college life! 

If you enjoy your college career, 
people will notice, and you'Ilget a lot of 
friends.... You know, now that I think 
about it. that's really what I'm trying to 
say. Forget what I said before. I didn't 
know what I was saying. 

You needalot of friends whileyou're 
in college. If you have a lot of friends, 
you'll be popular, and people will want 
to name their cows after you. ...That's 
really what I'm trying to say. Forget 
that stuff about having friends. I was 
just grabbing for anything. 

The important thing here is to get 
people to name their cows after you. If 
you accomplish that, I don't sec how 
you wouldn'tenjoy college life- -which 
takes me back to my original

Letters to the Editor 

CK Doesn't Stand for Convenient Kitchen! 

Dear Editor: 

What is the CK. for? Sounds like a dumb 
question, but I'm starting to wonder. 

Why can't they get it (anything) straight? 

Point 1 - Is there a cut-off point when they 
stop serving breakfast or start serving lunch? 
If there is, the lime is different each day. I've 
been there twice after 10 a.m. this week and 
I've been told that they weren't serving lunch 
yet. I've been able to get lunch in the past at 
this time. They offered me breakfast, but I 
didn't want breakfast, which brings me to my 
second point. 

Point! - The last time I ate breakfast at the 
CK. I went straight back to the dorm and 
puked. Breakfast items are much too greasy!! 
It gets bad when you fill a napkin with grease 
when trying to get the grease off your prosase. 
Even McDonalds has loss grease than that. 

Point J- I've been late for work three times 
waiting for a take-out order. I don't mind 


being late for work, but when I can't eat my 
food when I get to work? Why? Because I 
asked for the sandwich to be plain I don't 
know what plain means to the C.K.. but it 
means "nothing;" no mayo, no lettuce, no 
tomato. NO NOTHING ! The sandwich had 
mayo smothered all over it. 

Point 4 - Call-ins! They only take call-ins 
when it is convenient for them. I call-in an 
order so I can "try" to be at work on time since 
it takes a long lime for the food to be prepared. 
I've gone to the CK. twice after I found out 
they weren'ttaking call-ins to see if Icouldget 
some food anyway! I was told by the cashier 
the reason they weren't laking call-ins was 
because four workers called in sick. That's 
the fourth time I've heard that in two weeks. If 
workers can't be responsible enough, I don't 
know if I would want them working for me. 
Once or twice a month maybe, but to be sick 
three or four times in two weeks? 

TheCK. is the only I ood place open where 
we can use our ID cards between 8: 1 5 a.m. and 
1 p.m. Students have classes, have to make it 
to work, etc. We are told it's not good to go all 
day without eating, but when you have classes 
until 9:50 a.m. and you have to be at work by 
10:30 a.m. and be there till 5 p.m., it might just 
be helpful to be able local something between 
9:50 to 10:30 a.m. 

I would like to see a few things changed. 
Not just for my benefit, but for everybody's. 
- James Housand 



Limit Your 

By John Appel 

Alright, it's a new year and time for 
ail of our new resolutions. Perhaps 
your resolutions are to go on a diet, or 
maybe to let your hair grow until you 
obtain you're first 100% on a test. 
That's fine, but for some of us, we 
would wind up looking like "Cousin 
It" before our Einstein aspirations are 
obtained- I think resolutions are great 
as long as they are reasonable. You 
don't hear of the "Refrigerator Perry" 
saying, 'Til just eat lettuce and water, 
so I can eventually catch Barry Sand- 
ers on a dead run." Yeah right! 

These may not be the most realistic 
situations, but the fact is that some 
goals are probably just out of reach. 
However, things on our own campus 
can be helped through our new resolu- 
tions. If we can realize that it's impos- 
sible to do more than our best, then 
we'll begin to realize that we all make 
our share of mistakes. If we didn't 
make mistakes, I'm sure that we would 
be among other perfect people such as 
Khadaffi or Hussein. Noreally. they're 
perfect— just ask them! 

If we can keep our non-perfect atti- 
tudes in mind, whether it's on or off the 
court, things seem to be a bit more 
tolerable. And maybe, the referee was 
correct in calling that foul; that seems 
to be so impossible to believe.

What's Happening This Semester? 

By Brenda Pooley 

Well, we're all back for another semester 
of classes, late night cramming, and exams. 
But there's got to be more to look forward to 
than spring break and finishing this semester. 
We're in luck. There's much more to look 
forward to. The different clubs and organiza- 
tions have planned many events for us to 
attend to interrupt the monotony of our stud- 
In January and February, which always 
seems to be the longest months, the SA has 
kept busy planning. This Saturday night will 
1 probably hold the biggest event of the year. 
It's lime for the Island Party. The following 
weekend will give us a chance to try out our 
ice skating abilities in Knoxville. And then on 
Super Bowl Sunday, the showdown between 
the two best teams in the NFL can be seen 
somewhere on campus; with the help of the 

February will be just as packed as January 
with the Valentines banquet on the 9th and the 
college bowl final. And each of us will have 
a chance to, choose next year's officers during 
the SA elections on February 13. Let's make 
sure they're as good as this year's. 

In March, we can look forward to 10 days 
of no school and just relaxation on the beach, 
the slopes, or maybe just bumming around at 
home. Then in April, the first Friday night, to 
be exact, the Destiny Drama group will be 
presenting its homeshow. From what I hear, 
this is a vespers you won't want to miss. The 
following weekend, the final event of the year 
will take place on Saturday. April 18. Straw- 
berry Festival will feature a slide show re- 
minding us of the fun and not-to-fun times of 
the 1991-92 school year. The yearbook will 
also be given out at this time.

microfiche sources, article reference books, 
magazines, and 97,993 books. Sometimes, 
though, even this amount of educational ma- 
terial isn't enough for Southern students, 
especially during research paper time. 

Because of the need for more sources, 
many students drive- 25 to 30 minutes away to 
go to the UTC library, the next closest library. 

In the spring, however, UTC library may be 
seeing a lack of southern College students in 
Us chairs, aisles, and parking lots. This is 
because a new library is opening up, one that 
is only four minutes away. 

It will be called the Ooltewah-Collegedale 
Library branch of Hie Chattanooga-Hamilton 
County Library. 

The building will be located just after four 
corners on the left, near the medical center. 

Jane McFarland, director of the Chat- 
tanooga-Hamilton County Bicentennial Li- 
brary system, said construction has already 
begun, but this is only to get a head start before 
the cold weather hits. "It will hopefully be 
completed in the late spring of next year," she 

This new library will be a public library, 
which differs from a college library in a few 
ways. "Public libraries are very popular," said 
McFarland. "One reason is because they do a 
lot of work with children. Story hour is one 
service the library will provide for them." 

According to McFarland, the services of- 
fered to the children can also benefit college 
students who are looking for a chance to do 
volunteer work. 

Another way public and college libraries 
differ is found in their selection of reading 
material. "Public libraries do not have as 
many magazines as college libraries," said 

"But," she added, "public libraries do have 
more popular reading materials in both the 
non-fiction and fictional categories. Cook- 
books, how-to books, and gardening books 
are examples of what you are likely to find in 
a public library. You don't see many of these 
books in college libraries." 

This new library will hold 40,000 books, 
and any resident within a 50-mile radius of it 
can be a member. In order to be considered a 
resident, a person needs to have a fixed ad- 
dress, McFarland said. 

The only problem college students may 
have with the library is its estimated hours. 
"The library will probably be open from nine 
in the morning to nine at night," McFarland 
said, "but we aren't sure of the exact times 

"As for days of the week, the only thing we 
can estimate is that it won't be open more than 
two nights a week. It will probably be opened 
on Saturdays, though," she added.

procedures it would take to make him see. 
l Jesus would have lo accomplish to give him sight, 
would he have asked him? Would he have had enough faith in Jesus' 
ability and willingness that he could just let HIM do it? 

We as Adventists, like the blind man. are "experts." We know what has 
to be done if we are to receive our sight. You could say that we know all of 
the "physics and procedures" that must take place for us to be free from 
spiritual poverty and blindness. 

But have we found so many answers thai we forgot the Answer? Has 
our knowledge of "pathways" to salvation been the very tool Satan has used 
to keep us from crying out, "Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me " 
Apparently the blind man could see. He saw that all the knowledge that he 
possessed could never give him the POWER that it took to set him free. 

From where we stand, freedom looks impossible. But from where Jesus 
stands, n ]s as good as done. Jesus proclaimed "It is finished!" nearly 
2,000 years ago! 

For one blind man. it was as simple as spit in the mud. For another it 
was a cry for mercy. For you . . . it could be as simple as one plain prayer 
on your bed before you fall asleep this very night. Don't be afraid to leave

The epidemic of infec-

according to Mrs. Marian 
Kuhlman, Health Service

however, that it is impos-

Mrs. Kuhlman said, 
"Gamma Globulin, a pro-

effective in preventing the

Infectious hepatitis is 
caused by an as yet unknown 
virus. Fever, malaise, gas-

required after the first symp-

weeks to regain their full

Letters to the Editor 

What Happened To Senior Parking at Talge' 

Dear Editor: 

It's approximately I a.m., and you're a 
senior driving into the "senior" parking lot at 
Talge Hall to park your car. Just then you 
realize that the lot is full. Not just full of cars 
of visitors, guests, and underclassmen, but full 
of a basketball court. Don't get me wrong. I 
love basketball, and I think it was a great idea 
to put in an outdoor court, but why there? The 
problem could have been so easy to fix. Put 
the court somewhere else! 

Seniors this year had to fight to get reserved 
parking and now that wc have it, we can never 
use it if we stay out past 10:30 p.m. This will 
be a problem not only this year for seniors, but 
all underclassmen who think that they are 
going to have reserved parking their senior 

There is plenty of space in other areas of 
Talge Hall parking lot that are never used. 
Why didn't they put the court there? Why 
didn't the seniors who park there vote on it? 
And what happens if a car is damaged by a 
basketball etc. with parking only several feet 
away from the court? These are questions that 
will probably never be answered. 

My only suggestion is this. Since the court 
is already there and they probably won 't move 
it, let us park there from 7 p.m. till 9 a.m. This 
would at least bring back a little bit of the 
reserved senior parking convenience. 

Obviously, there are many problems with 

this "arrangement", and these sentiments I 

feel are felt by many other upset seniors. I just 

hope it's not too late to make some changes.

Why No Variety In Special Music? 

Dear Editor; 

Why doesn't Southern College have more 
variety in its special music? It can't be from 
a lack of good musicians. Southern has a 
talented music program: choral groups, an 
orchestra, and band. While these groups per- 
form agreat deal of the music, alack of variety 
other than these groups remains to be seen. 

I have noticed that the majority of special 
music is vocal solos and they tend to be the 
same three or four people. Nothing against 
them, I just prefer a little more variety in 
music. It sometimes seems that we have fallen 
in a rut and can't get out. 

What happened to all the instrumental 
music? There are many talented musicians to 
choose from in the band and orchestra alone, 
but rarely have I seen any of them perform a 
solo or duet. I can remember only five (at the 
most) that have performed for vespers or 
Thatcher Sabbath School this school year. 

So whatdo I suggest to solve this dilemma? 
Iproposethatwhoeverselects the music should 
go to one of the music professors for names of 
people that could add some variety to South- 
ern's special music program. Surely, they 
could supply some names of musicians that 
are able to perform and do a good job.

"AA" Basketball 
Teams Seam 
Fairly Even 

By John Appet 

For once in the history of basket- 
ball, there is a fairly even "AA" 
league. It seems that year in and 
year out there is always a best team 
and a worst team. For example, the 
team I was privileged to play with 
last year was so bad that we thought 
we were doing good when we were 
down by 30 points. Then, on the 
other hand, some teams are so good 
that they won't lose no matter how 
many "granny" shots they put up. 

Of course a couple teams are 
ahead of the rest, but at least every 
team has one or more wins to their 
name. Several games have come 
down to the wire and a couple late 
comebacks have been seen. In the 
Taylor-Showalter game, Taylorwas 
up by as much as 15 points in the 
second half. With some tough de- 
fense and scraping offense, Show- 
alter's team fought back to loseonly 
by two. 

and not know who is going to lose 
by a tremendous amount. Agameis 
always fun togoto this year because 
there's the possibility of winning. 
It's true that winning isn't every- 
thing, but it is nice to experience 
once in a while.

What Is Acappella? 

The music group Acappella has become a 
leader in the acappella music industry with 
close harmonies and themes of praise and 
glory. Although their music and backgrounds 
may be known, some may have questions 

What is the difference between Acappella 
and AVB (Acappella Vocal Band)? "AVB is 
geared toward young adolescents with more 
vocal percussion and some rap, whereas 
Acappella iried to cover a gamut of styles 
including gospel, reggae and the like," said 
George Pendergrass. lead singer. AVB and 
Acappella arc under the same music ministry, 
but utilize different sounds and singers. 

Of the non-inslrument bands, Take Six has 
also grown in popularity. Acappella's bari- 
tone Wayne Dean comments, "Take Six is an 
extremely talented group utilizingjazz chords 
combined with rhythms. The difference is, we 
try to keep our chords and tunes simple so that 
people can recall and sing them." 

The band was started in 1982, but not until 
1988 did the members stay the same. This 
then became an older, more settled group, and 
provided a stable change for familymembers. 
Because of this dedication to family, Acap- 
pella does not use female vocals. "In my 
personal opinion," said Pendergrass, "the 
reason we do not have females in the band is 
the commitment to family and children. It 
wouldn't be good to have families split while 

queness to the group is the ability to a new 
sounds for each song. When doing 

The Christian group Acappella performed at Southern on Jan. 21 


asked how they came up with these sounds. 
Pendergrass said, "Trial and error. Actually, 
some sounds can only be produced in the 
studio or with the right microphones, but I try 

sound each night and ifit works, I keep ies if needed or generate activity and excite- 

it. We try to show the versatility of the ment for the continual service and praise to

Frizbee Craze Hits 
New Record Heights 

Reprinted from the Southern Accent, October 13, 1977 

As a sport* Frisbee has 
come into its own in the last 
10 years. Beginning as a 
simple game of toss and 
catch, it has advanced to a 
highly skilled sport. Play- 
ers rate classifications such 
as Master and World Class 
Master and a World Cham- 
pionship meet is held annu- 
ally at the Rose Bowl. Com- 
petitive Frisbee events from 
Freestyle to Frisbee Golf 
have established tourna- 
ments scheduled across the 
country throughout the 

Frisbee changed course 
with the introduction of die 
Professional model in 1968, 
the later founding of the In- 
ternational Frisbee Associa- 
tion (now 80,00 members) 
and codification of stan- 
for Frisbee games. 

The first IFA sponsored 
World Championship tour- 
nament was held in 1974 
and attracted over lOOcom- 
petitors of Frisbee Master 
rank from across the coun- 
try. Now an annual event, 
the tournament offers 
World Championship titles 
in: Overall, Distance, Ac- 
curacy. Freestyle, Frisbee 
Golf, Ultimate, and Guts. 

Frisbee discs are every- 

where today. High schools 
and universities are initiat- 
ing classes in the sport, ar- 
ticles on Frisbee have ap- 
peared in such magazines 
as Sports Illustrated, 
Women Sports, and Time. 
Television networks film 
major Frisbee tournaments 
bee events along with base- 
ball and football. 

It's a fast-moving team 
sport combining qualities 
of soccer and basketball. 
Played on a field, seven 
players to a team, the Fris- 
bee is moved from player 
to player by passing. Goals 
are scored by throwing to a 
team member in the end 
zone. Played intercolle- 
giately, interscholastically. 
and by various clubs, the 
1975 Intercollegiate cham- 
pion is Rutgers University. 

A fast, furiously com- 
petitive team sport in which 
the Frisbee has been 
clocked at nearly 100 mph. 
Two learns of three players 
face each other across a 15- 
yardneutralzone. Thedisc 
is thrown across this zone, 
points being scored for wild 
throws or missed catches. 
Throws must be caught 
cleanly in one hand.

Here we are in a sort of post "Gilligon's Island 
Party" euphoria and "Super Bowl" madness (other-

Are Recycling 

Cardboard Boxes 

For McKee 

Southern is providing temporary employ- 
ees for the McKee box recycling plant The 
college recently signed a six-month contract 
to fill vacancies in this part of McKee Foods 

The program will send Southern temporar- 
ies to McKee until the college builds a facility. 
Box recycling will then be the newest campus 
' industry. 

The building is planned to be completed 
near the former broom shop by summer. "The 
program is bringing new money instead of just 
circulating inside money." said Southern's 
personnel director Elsworth Hetke. Six stu- 
dents are now employed. This number will 
increase as McKee employees transfer to other 
positions in the company. Applicants to the 
McKee-run program still have to follow 
Mckee's hiring procedures. 

Starting pay is $5.50 per hour. Each of the 
three shifts will be split into four-hour shifts. 
"Our aim is to employ as many students as 
possible," said Hetke.

Southern Student Meets 
Her Sister For First Time 

What do Carrie Applebury, a 
junior religion major, Gina 
Marshall, and Dana Powers have 
in common? They're sisters. 

On Jan. 31 Carrie, Gina and 
Dana came together for the first 
time. Carrie had not seen Gina in 
1 years and had never met Dana. 

Carrie said sherecently learned 
that her farther had been married 
to several different women be- 
sides her mother. She figured she 
had at least another sibling, and 
Gina turned out to be the mystery 

sibling. Over Christmas break 
Carrie learned of the location of 
her sisters and contacted them. 

Carrie said she may have other 
siblings and she's going to find 
out. "I prayed about finding my 
sister Gina, andnow I feel nothing 
is missing," she said. Carrie said 
she gained a blessing in searching 
for Gina because she learned she 
had yet another sister, Dana. "I'm 
so happy," Carrie said, "and I'm 
so thankful." 

'Love and Relationships' 
To Be Presented For Ves- 
pers on Valentine's Day 

"Love and Relationships" will 
be presented by Ed Lamb, chair- 
man of Behavioral Science De- 
partment, for the Feb. 14 vespers 
at 8 p.m. 

"It's easy to look at a couple 
early in a relationship and be criti- 
cal or judgmental because of the 
infatuation factor. Love is all 
stages. It's a continual growing 
and developing into arelationship 
that shows caring," said Lamb. 
He will seek to use biblical and 
personal examples to explain 
practical aspects of love as seen 
through the lives of others. 

Lamb would like to show stu- 
dents that the "number one emo- 
tional need is appreciation. It's 
important to grow in a relation- 
ship. Evidence of this is meeting 
the emotional and spiritual needs 
of the other person. Their needs 
are just like yours." 

Love, in its many dimensions, 
will be the underlying theme of 

the program. CARE Ministries 
Director Jeff Gang said, "As I was 
looking through the calendar I 
realized CARE vespers fell on 
Valentine's Day and decided to 
tackle themeaningoflove. There 
are three key decisions my mother 
told me I would make: first, my 
relationship to God; second, my 
career; and third, the person I'd 
spend the rest of my life with. At 
Southern, we spend a lot of time 
focusing on God and careers, but 
we rarely talk about relationships 
and that's what this vespers is 

Destiny Drama Company will 
perform, and CABLE Cafe will 
be held afterwards. 

"OurSaviorhad the same needs 
and sought out human relation- 
ships the same as we do today," 
said Lamb. "God has given us a 
responsibility to demonstrate a 
caring love to other people and be 
a reflection of His love."

Southern Students Will Visit 
London for Spring Break 

y Darren Williams 

Most students at Southern make 
I big plans for Spring Break. 
Whether it's skiing in Coloradoor 
lying on the beach in Florida, 
everyone has something to do. 
But have students ever thought 
about going to London? 

Samuel James, English and 
German teacher at Collegedale 
Academy, will sponsor a trip 
i during Spring Break. So far only 
10 Southern students and a few 
faculty members have signed up 
logo. There isstillplentyofroom 

The trip will begin Thursday, 
Feb. 27 at Atlanta International 

Airport and will end there on 
Sunday, Mar. 8. Students can 
basically make up their own sched- 
ule and do what they want to while 
in London. The trip does not 
count for any credit hours and, 
according to James, is "not an 
organized tour where we plan to 
stay together." 

This trip to London is a great 
opportunity to visit another coun-

they want to see and do what you 
want to do. Any student inter-

Week of Spiritual Emphasis Brings 
Laughter and Positive Response 

y Tiffiney Hubbard 

Laughter and applause rang 
through the church as Victor 
Czerkasij spoke during the Week 
of Spiritual Emphasis Feb. 2-8. 
Each evening he spoke to a large 

Chaplain Ken Rogers was 
pleased with the response 
Czerkasij received. "Victor is a 
very sincere speaker with a lot of 
energy. He relates well with the 
students and they are very recep- 
tive to him," he said. Roizcr-. also 
said he felt the Week of Spiritual 
Emphasis was important because 
it was not only an opportunity for 
students to make a commitment to 
Christ but also a time of encour- 
agement and renewal for those 
who already know Christ. 

The students seemed pleased 
as well. "I really liked how his 

Victor Czerkasij, "83 theology 
graduate, spoke for Southern's 
Week of Spiritual Emphasis. 

Although this Week of Spiri- 
funny and inspira- tual Emphasis is over, the next

the fall.

Southern's Golf Course Is 'In the Rough' 

The Three-Hole Course Has Not Been Maintained 

The weather is getting warmer, 
and for students who like to golf. 
this a good sign. So why not play 
a few holes on Southern's three- 
hole course for free? 

Unfortunately, this is not an 
option, because the course has not 
been maintained. Phil Garver, 
chairman of the physical educa- 
tion department, said "Thirty 
thousand dollars was spent on 
building the three fairways and 
greens, for teaching golf class and 
for Southern students to use for 
practicing, but all the money has 
gone to waste." 

Gene Carle, former golf stu- 
dent, said "The fairways now look 
as though they are the rough in- 
stead of fairways, and the greens 

can only be detected by the raised 
areas at the ends of the fairways." 

Ted Evans, physical education 
professor and present golf teacher. 
requires that students play at least 
nine holes a week while enrolled 
in the class. In response to these 
requirements. Carle said, "This 
can be expensive and can be in- 
convenient if you have no trans- 
portation. I wish they had South- 
em's course in shape when I took 
the class." 

"We haven't kept it up because 
of the lack of use," says Charles 
Lacey, director of the Grounds 
Department. "Besides that, it 
would take too much money to

Why Vote? 

\ Ihn •■!' '"!_£ 

What's a dark horse? Why isn't it 
called a dark gerbil... or adark platypus? 

Whether you care or not. Student As- 
sociation elections arc almost here. I 
know it's sometimes difficult forme to 
care. What's the point in voting? It 
seems that during election time, candi- 
dates (not all of them) act different- 
like they're perfect They watch to see 
who's listening and give you that stupid 
smile like you've been friends for years. 
Maybe it's just gas... I don't know. 

I hate that part of politics. Just be- 
cause someone's elected to an office 
doesn't mean their life is going to be 
perfect. Noneof us are perfect. All of us 
(not just those who are running for of- 
fice) need to realize that and be honest 
with ourselves. Don't be fake! 

Don't get me wrong: all candidates 
aren't like this. And certainly, there is a 
point in voting. It's our responsibility to 
elect the right people. 

So, when and if you cast your ballot, 
vote for the candidate who knows he or 
she is not perfect. 

And for those of you who are running 
for an office, I hope you're wearing 
comfortable sneakers.

Steps To Christ Is A Powerful Movement 

A powerful movement on Southern's 
campus is making a major effort to make the 
second coming of Christ happen soon. 

"The leader of this group is Jesus Christ 
literally." said Gary Collins, one of the leaders 
in Steps to Christ Ministry. The groups meets

It was formed in April of 1 99 1 after the "Bell 
Tower Ministry" from Oakwood College per- 
formed on this campus. In the last of their 
three programs, an appeal was given and nine 
people consecrated themselves to God in re- 

The students who attended this last pro- 
gram, along with some membersof Bell Tower 
Ministry, suggested that Southern form its 
own group on campus. The group began 
meeting on the steps to Lynn Wood Hall, 
hence the name Steps to Christ Ministries. 

The goals of STC is to assist God in finish- 
ing his work. This involves having the Holy 
Spirit cleanse so that Christ can work through 
us (based on Philippians 2:5). "We are pray- 
ing desperately for the Latter Rain to fall on

Through the program, Christianity in 
Motion, founded by Glenn Coon, the mem- 
bers request prayer for certain problems; ei-

searches for a text to help solve this problem. 
All are required to sign an agreement that Steps to Christ Ministry meets Sundays and Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. on the steps of

It is between the group and God.

History Figures Enlighten History Club Initiates 

By Jennifer Willyy 

Thursday night, Jan. 30, was a cold night to for the 1 3 Southern students waiting to enter When the door finally opened at 7 p.m., the 
be standing on someone's porch, especially Dr. McArthur's house. students met figures from the Modem, Indus- 

trial, Classical, Renaissance and Reforma- 
tion, and Future periods in history. As the 
students visited each different room, the fig- 
ure, or rather a staged person, enlightened 
them on that lime period. 

This visit of the history figures is a part of 
the traditional initiation into Phi Alpha Theta, 
the International Honor Society in History. 
To be initiated, students must have at least a 
3.1 GPA in all history classes, amounting to 
12 hours, and should have a 3.0 in all other 
classes. Phi Alpha Theta is the largest accred- 
ited college honor society in the world with 
725 chapters. 

Russell Miller, president of Southern's 
chapter, Sigma Alpha, said one of the benefits 
of being in such a prestigious society is the 
possibility of higher paying Civil Service jobs 
after graduation. 

With job opportunities waiting, newly ini- 
tiated members enjoyed an evening of fun and 
learning at McArthur's home. Alex Bryan, 
one of the initiates, summed it up when he 
said, "It was a fun and enriching experience to 
be in a room with so many historians."

SA Senate Proposes 
Change In Shorts Policy 

It is something that simply 
could never be true. 

Dress Code, Section 8c. "The 
following are strictly prohibited: 
Shorts in classroom buildings . . . 
on general campus, and in the 
Student Center." 

But it is. 

In its meeting Jan. 29, the SA 
Senate passed a proposal which 
asks that the Dress Code be 
amended to officially allow shorts 
on the general campus and in the 
Student Center. 

Senator Mike Orquia admits 
that most students want a dress 
code which would allow shorts in 
the cafeteria and library as well, 
but he sees this Senate action as a 
step in that direction. "This may 
be a step for cooperation and bet- 
terrelations with the faculty," says 
Orquia, "or it may J 
that the Senate wants to get » 
thing accomplished." 

Dr. Bill Wohlers, " 
dent for student ; 
ted the dress code : 

Student Services Committee has 

The Senate asked that Orquia 
present the Senate plan when the 
committee discusses the issue. 
There has been no confirmation 
by Dr. Wohlers' office. 

Many students agree with the 
Senate's proposal. "There is an 
overall trend for schools to be- 
come less strict," says Junior Joel 
Hutchinson. "This is a step in the 
right direction." Krisi Clark, SA 
social vice-president, agrees. 
"Why have a rule if you don't 
enforce it?" she asks. 

On the other hand, some feel 
this Senate action is useless. "Why 
bring attention to a rule that is not 
being enforced?" says Tim Bur- 
rill, SA finance director, who feels 
the entire dress code won't change 
because of this one proposal. 

Orquia said he feels this propo- 
sition has a good chance of pass- 
ing. But he emphasizes that 
change can only come with the 
strongsupportof the student body. 


Watson and Metts Crowned 
Courtesy King and Queen 

Reprinted from the Southern Accent, February 23, 1961 

Ronnie Watson, junior the- 
ology major, and Ollie Mae 
Metts. junior elementary edu- 
cation major, were crowned 
the king and queen of cour- 
tesy, respectively, during the 
Valentine Banquet held in the 
college cafeteria at six o'clock 
Tuesday evening, February 14. 

Courts Announced 

Preceding the crowning of 
the king and queen, their re- 
nounced by Master of Cere- 
monies Charles Fleming, Jr., 
business manager of the col- 
lege. Pat McCoUum, a two- 
year medical secretarial stu- 
dent, was introduced as the 
princess next to thequeen. The 
rest of the court were Jeanne 
Pettis,asenioreIementary edu- 
cation major, and Julia Boyd, 
a senior nutrition major. 

Introduced Alternately 

The ladies and men of the 
court were introduced alter- 
nately. Biology major Jimmy 
Mobley was chosen as the 
prince next to the king. Others 

in the king's court were John 
Bridges, a junior theology 
major, and Bill Mundy, a jun- 
ior physics major. 

This semi-formal banquet 
was geared to the Valentine 
Day theme. The food was 
prepared by Mr. Jolin Schmidt, 
food services director, and 
decorations were set up under 

Preceding Miss Rachel 
Christman's closing remarks, 
Sharon Olson sang "Will You 
Remember," and Jimmy Dunn 
sang "'Love Is a Song." 

Christman Thankful 

Miss Christman thanked all 
of the studentsfor their friend- 
linessandexcellentspirit. She 
that courtesy was not easy to 
.perform, but thai it was beau- 
tiful to see. She defined a 
truly courteousperson as "one 
who cares about the happi- 
ness of others." 

Herremarks were followed 
by the crowning of the king 
and queen. 

The Decision 

Andy Nash reports from the Accent's Thai Bureau 

Blindfold yourself. Take a globe, spin it 
rapidly and scop it abruptly with your Finger. 
Remove the blindfold with your other hand 
and look. If you landed in sin ocean, repeat 
the process until you hit a country that 
appears in the Call Book in the Chaplain's 
Office ... 

About 95 percent of you will have little 
interest in an article that focuses on being a 
student missionary. A couple of years back, 
I would have been the sante way. Some of 
you, however, are considering one of the 
biggesldecisionsofyourlife. And,asfhe45 
of us here in the Orient well know, you're 
facing two big questions: "Should I go?" 
and "Where?" 

The answer to the first is really quite 
simple. No matter who you are, no matter 
what you're majoring in, no matter where 
you're from, the SM year is guaranteed to 
change yourlifeforthe better. You will help 
people, yes. butalong with that, you will see 
atid experience a world like few have before 

you. Take advantage of this opportunity. 

You may ask, "Is the SM job description 
only teaching English and Bible?" No, it can 
also be accounting, radio programs, building, 
nursing and traveling as part of a singing 
quartet. Whatever you want it to be. God has 
just the place for each of us. And this leads us 
to the second question. "Where should I go?" 
Here's a condensed guide: 

Korea. The most popular of SM destina- 
tions, Korea offers a well-organized, busi- 
ness-like atmosphere for teaching English and 
Bible to a very interested country. The pay is 
excellent, but the hours long, Seoul is only 
one of 14placesyoumaybesent. Beflexible. 

Japan, Taiwan and Bangkok, Thailand. 
Although different, these three settings also 
bring with them a fast pace. Culture-shock 
may be less (Pizza Hut does exist here), but if 
you're not a city person, be prepared to adjust. 
(Hat Yai, Thailand, where we're based, is less 
modem but quieter at night). 

The Islands. For those who really want the 

get-away-from-it-all experience, pick an is- 
land, any island. You may be isolated, but 
the natives of Palau, Poltnpei, Ebeye and the 
rest (Gilligan's?) will love you to no end 
And the snorkeling is unbeatable. (In all 
seriousness, during our week in Hawaii for 
SM orientation, we actually could see "Gil- 
ligan's Island," where the TV show was 
made. My question: What's wrong with 
being stranded there?) 

Guam, Vietnam and areas of Thai- 
land. These areas present specialized op- 
portunities, such as Adventist World Radio 
and numerous refugee camps. Steve 
Nyirady. for example, uses his RN skills to 
assistBurmese refugees on the Thai-Burma 
border. And you can bet they're thankful. 
The world doesn't end here, though. 
There's much, much more. Spain, England, 
Denmark. Israel, South America — the 
choice is yours. Talk to people — former 
SMs — and talk to the One who's been to all 
of these places. He'd love to help.

The idea of the College Bowl games came 
from Stan Hobbs while he was a student at 
Southern. Hobbs brought his idea to Ben-

man, who started the game- m the 1983-1984 
school year. In 1986. after graduating, Hobbs 
became College Bowl director. Hobbs gets 
his questions from almanacs, dictionaries of 
cultural literature and quiz bowl books. He 
also looks al suggested queslions from stu-

Some Students Will Have Access 
To Library Catalog From Dorms 

By Jem 

In the evenings, students are 
often lined-up to use the computer 
catalog in the library. However, 
students may see relief with the 
new modem link from the library 
to the dorms. 

Students with a 1200 or 2400 
baud modem and any personal 
computer equipment, except 
Apple, can access the library cata- 
log right in their own rooms. 
Floppies and instruction sheets 
will be distributed by John Beck- 


ett in the Computer Servic 
partment at no charge. 

As with the computers in the 
library, the on-line access will lock 
up occasionally. However, con- 
venience will be the key with in- 
stant access to the computers any 

In the future, the on-line data 
base will also access Ellen G. 
White information and magazine 
references. This is a one to two 
year project.

Letters to the Editor 

Keep Up the Golf Course! 

Dear Editor: 

If we're going to have a golf course, we it would be n 
should have the best one that we can. With the going to have 
increase in interest, and the uniqueness of in the school's broch 
being the only Adventisi college that has one, 

keep it up. If we're not

-Dean Qualley 

Dobber Is Pesky! 

Dear Editor: 

Dobber. What is this pesky thing? Why 
does it seem to think it's so breathtaking? 
And, perhaps most importantly, what twisted 
psychosis could create adoration for this 
strange, fuzzy-green Monstroid? Just idly 
wondering . . . 

I imagine somewhere in some heavy tome 
of diagnostic medicine it is documented: 
Dobberosis — The persistence of delusions that 
annoying mascots are "way cool, dude." 
Characterized by symptoms of recurring green 
hallucination, mental retardation, and a ten- 
dency to spout the word "Dobber" in varying 
forms and contexts whenever possible (e.g. on 
the Viewpoints page, campaign speeches, and 
the most hideous, James Dittes-proposed 
"Dobber Awards."— Aargh!) A truly sad 
condition with no known cure. 

I suppose Southern students could consider 
themselves privileged to have some bizzaro 
lunatic-thing shambling about the cafeteria 

bothering everyone, lumbering around during 
any SA event, and even showing up at what 
otherwise may have been a classy Valentine's 
banquet. I suppose we could consider it a 
privilege (and we could pull out our eyeballs 
with toothpicks, dry Ihem in the sun, and eat 
them like raisins). Sounds good . . . NOT! 

Really, now. Even if we were forced at 
public-opinion-point to have a mascot, with a 
poll box pressed to our head and a Dobberosis- 
tized freak with her finger on ihe trigger, even 
then . . . why Dobber? Couldn't we have a 
somewhat more relevant mascot? Perhaps 
Bennie the Book (including Ellen White's 
complete unpublished works translated into 
Hebrew), Debbie the Dissection (Wow! Red 
latex and spouting Formaldehyde!), or Melkor 
the Military Historian (who gives a running 
commentary on how the peas and spongy-loaf 
on your cafeteria plate are recreating the Battle 
of Numoo Peak). Certainly all of these are 
less repulsive than Dobber! 

Isn't there something thai could make this I 
so-called "Dobber the Dinosaur" just get up I 
and go away? Hmm. The guillotine 
probably be a bit too harsh, pictures with Gary! 
Hart a bit too ribald, an ice age a bit tool 

Wait a second! How did this antedilu' 
ding-dong make il through the flood, anyway?! 
Oh, well. We can all sit patiently, knowing! 
"Every dinosaur has his Deluge." 

Just wait, Dobber: a little water, a 
time, and you'll be happy, high-test gat

Dear Editor: 

Two weeks ago, the Accent ran a letter 
condemning the Gerald Farmer concert. Many 
people feel the "New Age" music has no place 
on our campus, but I really don't feci thai this 
is the biggest musical problem we face at 
Southern College. The Music Department 
works very hard to provide the campus with a 
continuous flow of well-planned concerts 
throughout the season, and just because some 
people can't appreciate a diversity of musical 
styles and artists doesn't mean that we all 
should be deprived of the opportunity to expe- 
rience the depth and breadth of our rich cul- 

Furthermore, people looking for Satan's 
fifth column should look a little closer to 
home. Historically, Satan's most profitable 
avenues have been the ones that most closely 
resemble God's true plan. We all view the 
Catholic Church and papacy as the anti-Christ 
but still recognize it as a basically Christian 
institution. Precedent, then, shows us that 
Christian contemporary music is in a much 
better position to corrupt Christian young 
people than "New Age" music. New Age 
music openly claims to be a vehicle of the 
New Age movement, but artists such as Amy 

Grant claim that they are trying to ailracl 
people to the Christian lifestyle all the while! 
slinking towards the money-laden pop roclf 
scent. She says that she loves Christ, and veil 
her videos portray women removing thei| 
clothing in public and performing varioi 
sexual acts. 

Increasingly, Christian musical artists a 
more interested in the rush they get from [hi 
crowd than from giving the glory to Christ! 
They quietly stand in front of the audiencej 
eyes downcast in a bondage-type pose °1 
lifting their eyes toward heaven and spreadiijjf 
their arms wide in a provocative gesture, louol 1 
proclaiming that "this one's for God." Eye! 
locally amateur vocal groups end up soundinj 
more like a chorus of soloists than a chorus jP 
the members compete for volume and nol4 
holding titles in hopes of record deals. Chns| 
tian music is one of the easiest places fronl 
which to break into pop music and n0W , a l 
tracts a plethora of gold diggers. If I ■"' 
draw an analogy, I'd say our music f 
provides us with something on par wi 
great reformers while CARE concerts w 
little better than Bakker or Swaggart. _

Sophomores Win Rees Series

pionship went lo the sophomores 
with a score of 92 to 86. 

The game turned out as ex- 
pected with the number one seeded 
sophomores facing the number 
two seeded juniors. The game 
was close and action -packed with 
the lead changing hands many 

The junior teem seemed to rely 
mainly on Rob Taylor's inside 
scoring and the outside shooting

of Ricky Hayes and Andy Duff. 
The sophomores, on the other

Days Aren't Normal for Southern's Nursing Students 

What is a normal day for a 
Southern College nursingstudent? 
There isn't one. 

I mean it! Dedication is a key 
word that nursing students abide 
by. Most know that these students 
put up with a lot. They put up with 
late nights, early mornings, and 
no sleep. You might by saying, 
well, I am not a nursing student 
and 1 put up with all that too. Let 
me add a few more words: full 
bed pans, irritable patients and 
oozing bed sores. Now that's 

I understand that a lot of people 
don't know exactly what goes into 
a nursing student's day. I was 
wondering, 1 followed them 
on a full day at the hospital. 

It all starts out at about 5:30 
a.m. when they wake up and put 
sleep behind them. After getting 
dressed in hospital attire, they head 
to the cafe for breakfast. Despite 
the early hour, most of the stu- 
dents are quite awake and are 
joking around. Al 6:30 a.m., all 
of the vans are loaded up with 
students and away we go to the 
hospital. Since the nursing class 
is so big. the students split up into 
different groups and go to sepa- 
rate hospitals. I chose lo go with 
the van to Memorial Hospital. 

We arrived at the hospital at 
around 7 a.m. and Mrs. Callie 
McArthur, a Nursing Department 
professor, led us to the second 
floor. When we arrived, Mrs. 
McArthur was pulled to the side 

abruptly by the head nurse of the 
wing and the nursing students were 
told^to go to the break room and 
wait. After a few minutes, Mrs. 
McArthur came into the room and 
lold us the news. "Evidently." she 
said, "this is the day the hospital is 
receiving its four-year accredita- 

To make a long story short, the 
head nurse wanted the students to 
know that the best thing for them 
to do was make themselves scarce 
and try to leave the floor as fast as 
possible. This was to keep them 
from being cornered and drilled 
on hospital procedures. Since I 
was dressed in casual clothes, I 
was told to turn into a grandson of 
a patient if cornered with my 
camera, pad of paper, and pen and 
to be on my way off the floor. 
After the briefing, the students 
heean ilicir clinical and headed to 
the individual patient rooms. 

By the way, it is 7:50 a.m. and 
the sun has just come out. 

Therest of the morning is spent 
taking care of patients. Each stu- 
dent works directly under a nurse 
and takes careof the physical needs 
of the individual patient. Bed 
baths, giving medication, assess- 
ments and shaving are all part of 
the morning's activities. 

Becherin the hallway and 1 talked 
to him about his patient. He said 
that his patient had pneumonia 
and had just been given his medi- 
cation. Sean, at the time, was

headed to get the things he needed 
to give the man his bed bath. I was 
not allowed in the patient rooms 
so I stayed in the hall to wail for 
another student. The next student 
I met up with was Amy Wren. 
She told me about how her patient 
was being slightly irritable and 
wouldn'ttakehermedication. But 
Amy pulled through and got her 
to lake it anyway. 

Uh,oh! It is 10:30 a.m. and the 
accreditation team is here. Most 
of the students have finished doing 
what needs to be done and tell 
their nurses that they have to leave 
and everyone meets in the break 
room. When everyone is ac- 

counted for. we head for the van. 
Whew! We make it out alive and 
we are on our way back. In the 
van, Mrs. McArthur talks to the 
students about their day and asks 
about techniques or problems thai 
they have questions about. 

It is 11:45 a.m. and we have 
safely arrived back at Southern 
and everyone heads to lunch. 

I hope you realize that these are 
truly hard-working and dedicated 
students. Maybe one day, if you 
are in the hospital, you will be 
lucky enough to have a nurse who 
graduated from Southern. You 
can be assured that they earned 
that career.

Nurses Arrive In Orlando For Training 

Reprinted from the Southern Accent, February 23, 1961 

With boxes andbaggage filled 
and bursting at the seams, the 
sophomore nursing students left 
Collegedale through snow and 
ice. By car. bus and train they 
journeyed to beautiful, sunny 

Upon arrival they received a 
warm welcome by all and a de- 
lightful reception from the jun- 
iors. Sylvia Fowler and Marga- 
ret Burkhalter are happy to be 
"home again." However, two or 
three of the girls are somewhat 
lonesome for "someone" at 
Collegedale. Virginia Caldwell 
was as excited as a child on 
Christmas Eve when she stepped 
out behind the dorm the other 
day and picked her first orange. 

The juniors really look pro- 
fessional as they care for the 

sick with a smile and an air of 
self-confidence. However, it is 
quite a different picture with the 
sophomores. They go to the 
hospital at 6:45 a.m. with shak- 
ing knees and pale faces. Some 
of their overheard explosion- 
were: "1 was scared silly." "1 
never felt so dumb in my life," 
and, 'T forgot everything I was 
supposed to do." 

The following have been 
elected officers of the Nurses 
Club for second semesiei^Mat- 
gie Temples, president; Rosal- 
ind Hendren, secretary; DilK

Up and Down the Stairs. 

Well, here we are two days away from 
Leap Year Day, Feb. 29. We ought to say 
something about it! i saved some newspa- 
pers, magazines and other memorabilia from 
the last Leap Year Day in 198S. The New 
Hampshire primaries, then, had just ended 
and Bush, Dole, Robertson, and Kemp were 
the Republican winners while Dukakis, 
Jackson, Gephardt, and Hart were the 
Democratic choices. It would take a super 
Tuesday and some more primaries to nar- 
row this all down to the Bush-Dukakis battle 
of the 1988 election year. 

In the Calgary Winter Olympics the US 
winners were Bonnie Blair, Brian Boitano 
and Debi Thomas — there were only six 
winners altogether. Noreiga's problems 
were just beginning in Panama. Wide ties 
were making a comeback and it was an 
unusually warm Leap Year Day all over the 
country. There must be some students here 
at Southern whose birthdays fall on Feb. 
29 — maybe vvc could have a party for them 
sometime — after all they're all of 5 or 6 
years old now! 

OK — let's check people sunning them- 
selves on the Student Center Porch and ask 
them and any others we encounter what 
they're planning to do during Spring Break: 

James Callan is skiing locaJly and camping 
with a bunch of guys; Shelli Senior, Michelle 
Fried, and Marci Williams are "doing" Pan- 
ama City, while Elizabeth Smith is traveling 
to Sanibel Island, the "shell capital of the 

In the Student Center TV room at least 
eight students were watching the Olympics 
and eating concoctions from KR'sPlace which

372 Seniors 

To Be Honored 

At March 26 


By Lorri Boyle 

What do 372 students on this campus have 
in common? On March 26, 129 two-year 
seniors and 243 four-year seniors will be 
honored at Senior Recognition ceremonies in 
the Collegedale Church at the 1 1 »•■"- **««>m 

It will not be a typical chapel service. The 
seniors will be dressed in caps and gowns, 
giving the college a chance to see the class of 
1992 in full splendor. Mark Bresee, religion 
professor, will give the morning talk. 

Senior Recognition was a tradition on 
campus for years before being ended then 
brought back within the last five years. "The 
ceremonies give the college a chance to honor 
and look at its prospective graduating class," 
said Dr. Floyd Greenleaf, vice president for 
academic administration. "This is the largest 
senior class in several years."

The International Club intends to bring 
Columbus back into focus for the Interna-

6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria. 

This year is the 500th anniversary of Co-

his accomplishments, the International Club 
has picked a Spanish theme for it's Extrava-

What is the Extravaganza? It's a celebra-

India, Spain, Barbados, Germany and Canada 
are just a few of the countries that will be 
represented at the party. 

All Southern students and the community 
are invited to we;ir their native dress and come 
join the fun. Cultural dances, Spanish music 
and skits are just some of the entertainment. 
The food will take on a spicy appeal to uphold 
the Spanish theme. Tickets are $10.

Hundreds of High School 

Students Will Be Here 

For Music Festival 

Hundreds of high school stu- 
dents will flood Southern's cam- 
pus March 18 through 21. The 
Southern Union Music Festival 
will be here once again. 

Students from all over the 
Southern Union are coming to 
participate in this year's festival. 
"It will be a time for students to be 
challenged by music they can't 
get in their own school setting," 
said Dr. Marvin Robertson, Mu- 
sic Department Chairman. "They 
will be able to get exposure to 
other conductors, and hopefully 
feel welcome on Southern's cam- 

Festival participants are sched- 
uled to provide the music for the 
programs at 8 p.m. Friday and 3 
p.m. Saturday in the church, and 
at 8 p.m. Saturday in lies P.E. 
Center. Some pieces will include 
"Hallelujah" by Beethoven, "a 

violin concerto" by Vivaldi, the 
"U.S. Field Artillery March" by 
John Philip Sousa, and a hymn, 
"Compassion" by Bruce Ashion' 

The students will be divided 
into four groups: choral, key- 
board, band, and string partici- 
pants. Each section will be under 
the direction of a featured clini- 
cian. Dr. Marianne Scriven from 
Takoma Park, Md., will conduct 
the choir, and Professor Joe 
Brooks from Western Kentucky 
University will direct the band. 
Dr. Bruce Ashton and Orlo 
Gilbert, both on the music faculty 
here at Southern, are in charge of 
the strings and keyboard. 

Thatcher and Talge halls will 
provide accommodations for the 
participants, and they will be is- 
sued theirown temporary IDcards. 
Most of them will leave Saturday 
night after the concert.

Who Do Educated Russians 
Most Want As New Friends? 

By a wide margin, young edu- 
cated people from the former 
Soviet Union say they most want 
to have a new friend from the 
United States. 

In a questionnaire distributed 
during 1991 to students and young 
professionals throughout the for- 
mer Soviet republics, fully 80 
percent of the respondents said 
they would like to make a new 
friend from the United States. No 
other country came close to this 
degree of popularity. 

The next-most -popular choices 
were England, with 64 percent, 
and Canada, with 48 percent. 

The questionnaire was con- 
ducted jointly by the Russian 
magazine Student Meridian and 
by Pen Pal Planet, of Scranton,

Hockey Team 

Was Impressive 

Perhaps one of the most memo-

was at the Olympic Games in France, 

The U.S. hockey team was defying 
the expert's predictions by easily 
winning their bracket. Fans all over 
were ail of the sudden '"hockey fans," 
even those tike myself who are from 
Florida or other non-hockey states. 
Every U.S. citizen wasmakingapoint 
to find out whether or not die U.S. 
team was winning. In the Student 
Center, there was standing room only. 

When the U.S. met more stiff 
competition, they did come up short. 
However, that was only by the stan- 
dardsthattheydidn'twinamedal. To 
the Americans, they did much more. 
For once, every American was agree- 
ing on something: their support for 
the U.S.tearn. The spirit that was 
surrounding the whole ordeal was 
one that is only repeated when every- 

It's a shame that team U.S. doesn't

New SA Officers Are Planning 

For all of the candidates, SA elections are 
over. The speeches are heard, the platforms 
read, the votes are in. For the winners the 
work is only just beginning. 

"I sure am glad it's over," said Krisi Clark, 
SA president-elect. "Next year's SA has 
everything. There is a good mix of elected 
officers, and I feel each suits his or her office 

As the euphoria of winning wears off, plans 
are being made for the future. Everyone wants 
to know how the 1992-93 SA will compare 
with this year's. 

"I think it will be a little more political," 
said Rob Fulbright, S A president. He cites the 
issue of student voice, a big part of the cam- 
paigns of James Dittes and Krisi Clark, as a 
major factor in the new SA. This will open the 
lines of communication between the students 
and the college administration. 

Clark agrees. While the priority of this 
year's SA has been social activities, she wants 
to build from the successful base and help the 
SA grow politically. For example, Clark feels 
that students deserve to know how theirmoney 
is spent. "Why don't students have a voice 
when big expenditures are made?" she said. 
She also wants to emphasize religious life on 
campus. "People need to leam how to know 
God," she said. 

Whether the SA grows politically or not 
will depend upon next year's Senate. Fulbright 
hopes that Senate will show initiative next 
year in advancing student issues. "If you have 
hard working, down-in-the-trenches senators 
willing to fight for the student voice," he said, 
"you really have something." 

Rick Cavanaugh, S A executive vice-presi- 
dent-elect, agrees. He sees the Senate taking

director of the Sel f Study Committee. 

"The morale is changed for the better,"said 
Haluska. "Virtually everybody on campus is 
happier. There is a feeling of trust and open- 
ness that wasn't here 10 years ago." The self- 
study report evaluates every aspect of the 
school's operation from institutional effec- 
tiveness, educational programs, faculty to 
student government, and financial resources. 

According to the surveys listed in the ap- 
pendix of the report; 

At least 80 percent of graduates surveyed 

report that their social attitudes and skills have 
been enhanced in writing, oral communica- 
tion, understanding of other social, religious, 
ethnic and national groups, and the ability to 
form positive relationships. 

About 60 percent report that their lifestyles 
have been enhanced in the areas of physical 
fitness, health knowledge, and wellness atti- 
tudes through programs at the institution. 

At least 80 percent of alumni responding to 
surveys reported thai the college classes or 
other institutionally related activities have 
made a positive contribution to their success 
in the working world or in graduate study. 

The school's finances are in a much better 
shape compared with the situation 10 years 
ago, said Haluska. "People are not really 

worried about cutting back a whole bunch of 
jobs even though there i 

One of the most significant parts of the 
recommendation is to increase the budget for 
McKee Library. 

"When the financial troubles came, every- 
thing had to shrink," said Haluska. "As the 
budget began to open up again, everybody gol 
more. But the library has nevergotten back to 
its original percentage of the budget pie." 

Haluska said that every 10 years the school 
needs to be reaccredited by Southern Associa- 
tion of Colleges and Schools. An advantage 
of being accredited is that students can trans- 
fer their credits to other colleges or graduate 

What Is Clown Ministries? 

Isn't this precious," she said as she bounced 
through the door. She proudly displayed a 
large, framed picture of a hobo clown with 
the message "Don't Worry, Be Happy." "It 
looks just like me." said Senior Lenawee 
Murray, who plays the Hobo character in 
Clown Ministries. 

Clown Ministries is an active part of the 
campus ministries covered under CARE. It 
includes 13 regular clown members, each 
portraying their own character. Sophomore 
Lindi Fulwider, happy clown, says it helps 
with her education major. "It's a way to 
appeal to children in a friendly way and show 
your personality without being silly. I get 
very hyper with my character. You can 
interact with the kids and don't always have 

Each clown has a different costume and 
complete make-up. Nine of the clowns are 
"whitefaces," which are white with painted 
on features, three are "character" faces and 
one's an "Auguste," a comical clown. 

Murray sees the ministry as a way to help 
other children in life experiences. "Once at 
the Chambliss home, I got to talk to a young 
girl who was physically abused. I could talk 
to her and tell her thai I experienced what she 
had and the only way to get through it was 
with Jesus Christ. It's another seed planted. 
It really is a ministry." 

The clowns recently went to Nashville and 
held children's church for the Boulevard 
SDA Church. March and April events in- 
clude Chambliss Home, Community Kitchen 
and the Deaf Center along with several hos- 

pitals and nursing homes. Sophomore Travis 
Stirewalt plays a doctor character, complete 
with clinical attire. He enjoys the hospitals as 
a way to make something fun in a place where 
people are sick. "I get to make the children 
think about something else. One of the best 
times was when I went into the emergency 
room and a little boy said "there's the man 
who brought me in' thinking I was a para- 
medic. I talked tohim and he stopped crying." 
The company performs skits and drama 
that include biblical presentations or charac- 
ter building. One of" the favorites is the 
illustrationofthe wise man building his house 
on the rock. Another is where the hobo I, mks 

Why Does the Music Department Have Recitals? 

iu i>„, 


Several times a semester, the Music De- 
partment holds music recitals. 

These recitals are open to all students tak- 
ing any type of music lessons who wish to 
participate and are used to evaluate perform- 
ance skills learned during lessons. They are 
optional for music students, but each student 
must perform once a semester for the faculty 
so they can be evaluated as to their progress. 

Music majors, however, must perform one 
final time at the end of their senior year at a 
senior recital as a final exam. Much prepara- 

tion goes into this recital, starting with a 
review by a faculty "jury" three weeks before 
the actual performance. At this point, the 
faculty informs the student as to whether they 
will be able to perform for the recital or 
continue schooling for another semester. The 
courses range from music history to teaching 

Anyone interested in attending these recit- 
als should contact the Music Department for 
d.ik-. and times. 

for happiness in money and material goods, 
but finds happiness in God with the help of 
happy clown. 

"This is a ministry because we can touch 
people with more than just speaking words. 
A preacher or service can't always reach 
children in the way that drama can. They're 
not threatened by us and we can show the 
love of Christ through laughter and the joy it 
is to be a Christian,' 1 said Sophomore Suzy 
Speight, co-manager. 

So if there are people with red hair and 
funny faces running around, it's probably 
Clown Ministries, promoting good morals 
and values.

Campus Safety Issues Tickets out of Jurisdiction 

Collegedale Police Disagree 
with Ticketing Procedures 

Tri-Community Fire Department responded to an alarm in Thatcher last Thursday. 

Bugs Being Worked Out of Alarm Systems 

Every two seconds, 290 alarms are 
checked i n Thatcher Hall. At the end of the day, 
possibly 400 transactions have been made with 
the Card Access system and every door opened 
is recorded. 

The alarm system is the best and latest 
technology available. It is being installed by 
ADT systems. Security requested a system that 
had the capabilitiesof pinpointing rooms, floors,

Administration Phases Out Post 
Graduate Half Tuition Plan 

The Administrative Council voted Monday, 
March 1 6 to change part of its policy regarding 
the Post Graduate Half Tuition Plan. 

Dr. Floyd Greenleaf, Vice President for 
Academic Administration, said the plan will be 
restricted to people who have had their Bache- 
lors Degree for two years or more. The policy 
will go into effect May 1, 1993. 

Formerly, anyone with a Bachelors Degree 
from any college could attend southern as a post 

"w dUatC and pay onl >' half the tuition rates - 
What we have done," said Greenleaf, "is sim- 
ply to add in the restriction that a student must 
have had his degree for two years before he 
comes back and picks up tuition at half price. 
That's the major difference." 

The plan was formulated in the mid 1980's in 

order to "draw students to the campus, 
the college's income at no additional expense, " 
said Greenleaf. "[We wanted] to bring students 
on to the campus and increase the college's 
income. [We also wanted] to provide a service 
for the students who come back and want to take 
an extra degree," he said. 

Greenleaf said the plan was changed because 
"people must have time to determine whether or 
not they are happy with their profession." He said 
Southern encourages people must have time to 
determine whether or not they are happy with 
their profession." He said Southern encourages 
people to try their degree, and if they don't like it,

The Campus Safety Department 
has issued moving violation tickets out 
of its jurisdiction. Director Dale Tyrrell 
said the department has written at least 
two tickets this year on College Drive 
West, the stretch of road in front of 
campus. According to Collegedale po- 
lice chief Dennis Cramer, campus secu- 
rity does not have the right to issue tick- 
ets there. 

"This is acity road and not part of 
campus," Cramer said. "Campus Safety 
cannot write tickets on city roads." 

Tyrrell responded, "We try to do 
things that are ihe least traumatic to those 
involved. If a student officer witnesses a 
violation and contacts the Collegedale 
Police to write the ticket, it would go on 
the violator's record. Instead, we have 
handled it through the college. We don't 
stand to gain either way," he said. 

One such ticket receiver was sen- 
ior John Craig, who got a $15 campus 
moving violation ticket in January for 
not yielding at the crosswalk on College 
Drive West. He said he and others with 
him interpreted the student traffic direc- 
tor's "confusing arm signals" as instruc- 
tions to continue driving through the 
crosswalk, which he did. Two days later, 
he received a campus moving violation 
ticket in his mailbox. 

Because he felt he was innocent 
and that Campus Safety did not have ju- 
risdiction to tickel on College Drive, he 
protested ihe citation. Craig contacted 
Campus Safety, Collegedale officials 
(who he said refused to comment on the 
issue), Hamilton County officials, and a 
lawyer (who he said told him he has a 
good case). Craig has since stopped 
pushing ihe issue because he said he was 
told by a Campus Safety employee that 
his ticket has been misplaced. Tyrrell 
said tickets are not usually lost and it will 
be found. "So many students come in 
here and talk to me about appealing their 
tickets that it's hard to remember his 
particular case, but I think I may have 
told him it would be dismissed," Tyrrell 

Tyrrell said he's sure Craig would 
rather keep his campus ticket than be 
ticketed by the Collegedale Police, and 
thai is why Craig was given a campus 
citation. He said the students working as

Imagination Station Completed 

SC Students and Community Complete Project in Six Days 

"While we were building, I kept say- 
ing 'Look at our beautiful playground. It's 
going to be wonderful ' and our architect looked 
at me and said "Barbara, you're doing more 
than building a playground, you're building a 
community. When you finish this project, 
you'll have more than you ever expected," 
said Barbara Hunt, General Co-ordinator. 

Six days, over 160 hours, and 1200 
volunteers came out to build Imagination 
Station, a dream that look three women a little 
less than a year to accomplish. 

All was not perfect, however, the 
weather left lots to be desired. "The plans 
called for 200 tons of sand and we '11 need that 
much more to make up for what the rain 
washed away. I was totally amazed even with 
the rain we had over 1 50 students sign up and 
help. Skip McCandless couldn't have done 
more. We saw Don Sahly building and sev- 
eral of the faculty." Grounds and service 
departments volunteered their help by setting 
up tents and tables for the food servers and 

Many students have already tried out 
the new park. Clifton Brooks, freshman said 
"I went Friday 1 2-5 and sanded big, big poles. 
It reminded me of a maranatha project be- 
cause of the volunteer labor and everybody

had a specific job to do and 
now you see the results." 
Students are welcome and 
encouraged to attend the 
playground with hours being 
from sunrise to sunset. 

The idea came from 
Barbara Hunt who took her 
kids to the Mountain Maze 
on Lookout Mountain. 
When she came back she 
talked with her sister, Kathy 
Hammond, about the need 
for a nice park in this area 
and she said "Okay, let's do 
it." Along with Evonne 
Richards and 12committees, 
the playground came to- 
gether. They are not through 
yet however, new projects 
in the future are being con- 
sidered and picnic pavilions 
are underway for the sum- 
mer. They have truly suc- 
ceeded in building: not just 
Imagination Station, but 
friendships that bond stu- 
dents, faculty, and commu- 
i ground. 

Extravaganza Gives SC an International Taste 

Approximately 160 southern students, 
community and out of town visitors came to 
the International Extravaganza Sunday Night, 
March 22. The party was held to honor all the 
international students on campus and to intro- 
duce next years Club officers. 

The cafeteria, where the party was held, 
was decorated with international flags that 
hung from the ceiling while European bread 
and butter and bottles of Martinelle's deco- 
rates the tables. 

The program began with the National 
Anthem which the guests sang as the Ameri- 
can flag was brought in. The first half of the 
program celebrated the many different cul- 
tures represented on campus, the entertain- 
ment included a Korean fold dance, an Afri- 
can poem and a French love song. "There was 
a good balance of different cultures repre- 
sented, " said this year's International Club 
pastor, Caleb Radebe. 

The theme of the extravaganza was the 
discovery of America and also of Southern. In 
honor of the theme, ad Spanish meal was 
prepared by the cafeteria. The food included 
Paella Con Polio, European Potato Bread and 
Frijoles negroes, to name a few of the entrees. 
"The food was really interesting, especially 
the bread," said Ellen Roberts, public rela- 
tions person for the club. 

The second half of the program celebrated 
the discovery of Southern. Sr. Son Duff, the 
MC for the evening, went around asking the 
guests how they discovered southern. Two of 
the typical answers were, "My parents went 
there," and "Doug Martin recruited me." 

Thank you's to the supporters of the club 
and those that helped with the party were 
announced, a special tribute was given to Dr. 

Bandioli. The Inter- 
national Club officers 
presented him with a 
card and a plant. 

Referring to how 
the guests appeared to 
like the party, James 
Dittes, president of 
International Club, 
said "We tried to have 
a relaxed and open at- 
mosphere so the guests 
could really concen- 
trate on the different 
cultures presented. I 
think the people who 
came had a good 
time." He will be 
passing the honor of 
presidency to Rodney 
Rufo next year. " I 
hope to have officers 
that are well coordi- 
nated with each other 
and work well to- 
gether,"saidRufo. His

Student Leaders Will 
Convene at Southern 

On Southern's campus April 9 through 12, 
the only spring showers will be brainstorms. 

That weekend, members of the Adventist 
Inter-collegiate Association, (AIA) will meet 
at Southern to share ideas that will affect 
Student Associations in Adventist colleges 
and universities across North America. 

Members of this conference are officers 
and officers-elect of nationwide Adventist 
Student Associations. They will take part in a 
Leadership Conference which will include 
casual sharing of ideas and organized semi- 
nars on topics dealing with specific offices 
such as social activities, newspaper and year- 
book publications, and relig: 

Alex Bryan, AIA president, feels the con- 
vention can do a lot for the future SA. "AIA 
is great," he says. "It adds zing to being an SA 
officer. You realize the impact you can have 
on student lives." 

Krisi Clark, SA president-elect, attended 
AIA last year at La Sierra College in Califor- 
nia as SA social vice president-elect. "I liked 

it," she says. "I got to share ideas and learn 
from other people." 

Clark will be making a presentation to 
the social activities group on one of her 
ideas — the Gilligan's Island party — as well 
as attending meetings with other present 
and future SA presidents. "I want to learn 
how to direct the student body and student 
voice," she says. She will also explore 
student issues and how to respond to them. 

AIA includes much more than just lead- 
ership seminars. Bryan feels AIA can also 
make a statement to the church on behalf of 
college students. "AIA is not some special 
interest group," he says, "It is the lifeblood 
of the church. If there is anything we want 
to say to our church, we can say it here as 
a representative body." 

"AIA brings a lot of great ideas," says 
SA president Rob Fulbright, who also at- 
tended last year's AIA conference. "You 
meet with the other officers and there are 
ideas you've never thought of and issues 
you never imagined you 'd face out there." 

SA Senate Approves Purchase of 
Benches for Brock Hall 

By Marissa Tucker 

The SA Senate officially 
approved the installation of 
this year's Senate project. 
Both the second and third 
floors will receive four 
benches, and the first floor 
will receive two. Each 
bench will be eight feet long 
and 24 inches wide, with a 
cloth-covered foam cush- 

The benches, which will 
be placed under the win- 
dows in the front hallways, 
will help alleviate the over- 
crowding problem on the 
third floor and provide stu- 
dents with more seating 
space throughout the build- 
ing. "Each floor will have 
several benches in place by 
the end of the school year, if 
all goes according to plan," 
commented Brad Emde, the 
Senate project committee 

In a cost-saving effort, 
K.R. Davis, SA sponsor, 
will be making the wooden 
benches and Dr. Don Sahty, 
doing the upholstery work. 
Depending on how much 
money is saved, the project 
committee is considering 
using the extra funds to- 
wards either a sand-filled 
volleyball pit ormore Straw- 
berry Festival equipment.

President George Bush Dominates in SC Poll 

Poll Reveals Economic Conditions Determined Vote 

A 45 percent vic- 
tory has never been con- 
sidered by politicians or 
pollsters to be a possible 
popular vote margin be- 
tween two major Presidential candidates. 
Such a landslide has never happened. In 
fact, the greatest victory in American presi- 
dential politics hovered only around a 20 
percent differential. 

But if Southern College were to 
decide the 1992 Presidential Election this 
spring, probable Republican nominee and 
sitting President George Bush would de- 
feat probable Democratic nominee Bill 
Clinton 70 to 25 percent. 

This decided margin is not surpris- 
ing, however, considering the makeup of 
Southern College's student body. Advent- 
ists have tended to be more conservative 
(and thus more Republican) that the main- 
stream — especially in the South. In a 1988 
mock election at Southern, George Bush 

President George Bush was the favorite 
candidate among Southern students. He 
received 70 percent of the popular vote in 
a poll conducted by the Southern Accent. 

defeated Michael Dukakis by a similar 
margin. The opinion of students who 
come to Southern College seems not to 
have changed during the past four years as 
to the party they prefer. 

The pole conducted by the Accent 
tells us some eye-opening things about the 
contrasts between Southern College Demo- 
crats and Republicans. When asked if they 
would vote in the fall, 88 percent of those 
whoclaim the Democratic Party responded 
affirmatively compared to only 65 percent

themajority candidate actually know less than 
those supporting the minority candidate. 

(An important caution to those who 
might feel relieved by any numbers this high 
which pertain to political awareness: The 
respondents to this pole were volunteers. The 
voice we hear is that of the semi-interested 
person, at least. If a true cross-section were 
taken, the number would be, in all likelihood, 
much lower.) 

Democrats on our campus don't seem 
particularly excited about the prospect of Bill 
Clinton as their candidate, however. Nearly 
40 percent say they would still prefer New 
York Governor Mario Cuomo over the Ar- 
kansas Governor. In addition, one-third of 

those voting Democrat appear to be leaning 
towards George Bush. 

The economy is the most important 
issue to 42 percent of Southern College stu- 
dents. Healthcare, an issue which many 
Americans consider to be very important, is 
the most important issue to only 6 percent of 
the student body. This is largely because of 
our age. (Most of us have yet to face major 
hospital and other medical bills.)

$1 Million Organ 
Undergoes Repairs 

$130,000 Estimate for Damage 
Done by Last Summer's Storm 

By Heather Williams 

The wind was fierce as it forced 
its way into Collegedale on Aug. 
4, 1 990. It ripped off part of the 
roof over the sanctuary in the 
Collegedale Church. Finally, it 
poured its torrents of rain into the 
church, onto the floor and the 
Anton Heiller Memorial Organ. 
The water flooded the church and 
soon people were using the com- 
munion towels to sop up the mess 
the storm made. 

Judy Glass, head organist and 
organ teacher at Southern, said 
the organ is worth between 1.2 
million and 1.6 million dollars. 
With the damage that was done by 
the storm, it is costing about 10 
percent of the total cost, nearly 
$130,000, to repair it. Fortunately, 
the organ was insured and this 
cost is being paid for by an insur- 
ance company. 

Restoration of the organ began 
this January because the builders 

had to finish some other jobs. The 
restorers are Richards, Fowkes and 
Co., which was involved in the 
initial installation of the Heiller 

"There are almost 5,000 pipes 
in the organ and they all have to be 
taken out except for thelarge pipes 
in the front of the organ," said 
Glass. They will then be cleaned 
along with the racks that the pipes 
sit in. The pipes will then be tuned 
and adjusted in order to put out the 

The restoration of the organ is 
expected to be complete by June 
2 1 , in time for an organ workshop 
that will take place June 21-26. 
"The workshop is like a coming- 
out party for the organ after the 
rain," said Glass. During this 
workshop, international organists 
will be giving lessons and per- 
forming i 

Repairs on the organ should be 


completed by mid June. 

after two years they ta ,i 
hack at half tuition. 

When the new restriction goes 

into effect, students will still be 
able to return as post graduates, 
but will not receive hall tuition 
until the allotted time period. 

Post graduate Sheila Draper 
appreciated being able to come 
back and pay half tuition right 
after her graduation. "I would not 

have come back two years later 
[forhalf tuition], "she said. Draper 
was able to finish another degree 
this year as a post graduate. 

Post graduates have make up 
approximately 1.5% of the stu- 
dent body in the past four years. 

The plan docs not apply to 
classes such as directed study, 
private music lessons, or the nurs- 
ing program.

crosswalk guards cannot issue 
Collegedale moving violations, 
but they can "take information to 
the Collegedale police and fill out 
a complaint, then the police can 
fill out an arrest. While the cross- 
ing guards are not police officers, 
they represent the Collegedale 
Police Department while direct- 
ing traffic on College Drive," he 
said- "The Collegedale Police 
Department will stand behind us." 

Tyrrell has worked as a 
police officer in New York and 
was security director at Andrews 
University before joining South- 
em. "I have been over this prob- 
lem before. When non-police 
officers direct traffic, they go out 
as representatives of the police 
department," he said. 

Cramer said, "The [Cam- 
pus Safety employees] can't en- 
force any traffic laws at all on 
Collegedale roads except to order 
a citation from a judge like any 
citizen can do." He said if any 
person witnesses a moving viola- 
tion on a Collegedale street, he or 
she can as a judge to sign a war- 
rant. "But generally, Collegedale 
police will not issue a ticket un- 
less we see it happen ourselves." 
If a moving violation happens on 
campus, the campus security can 
chase the violator for a mile off 

Tyrrell estimated the de- 
partment issues 250 tickets each 
month, and only three or four 
moving violations, but this doesn't 
meanwewon't. Wecouldbealol 
stricter with the stop signs and 
speeding on campus," he said. 
"Some students ask us why we 
don't write more speeding tick- 
ets, especially on Industrial Drive, 
but we like to enforce the campus 
laws without writing a lot of tick - 

"It's hard for students to 
understand that we're not trying 
to be the bully and push them 
around," Tyrrell said. "The stu- 

dents [officers] that are out there 
writing tickets are writing tickets 
for actual violations, but some 
[violators] may have real good 
reasons and in those cases we 
excuse their tickets." Tyrrell said 
he and security assistant Cliff 
Myers go over most appeals to- 
gether, but some cases he decides 
alone if they are obvious. 

"Ticket income does not 
enrich us directly," he said. All 
ticket fine payments go into South- 
em's general fund. 

The Safety Department 
has been upgraded dramatically 
in the last two years. The depart- 
ment purchased the patrol car last 
year, followed by the transporta- 
tion van and employee uniforms. 
This year, the department moved 
into newly renovated offices in 
Lynn Wood Hall and gained sev- 
eral computers and printers. One 
computer displays the status and 
location of all campus fire alarms, 
and in three weeks, it will be 
upgraded to include drawings 
pinpointing the exact location of a 
sounding alarm. Another com- 
puter keeps tabs on the card sys- 
tem in the dorms and Collegedale 

Twenty-two students are 
employed by Campus Safety. An 
officer is maintained in the secu- 
rity office around the clock, re- 
sponding to calls and observing 
fire and security systems by 
computer. An officer is also 
always on duty outside the office, 
and between 1 1 p.m. and 3 a.m., a 
third worker is added. 

Department duties in- 
clude: issuing parking and mov- 
ing violation tickets, overseeing 
the campus, Collegedale Church 
and Flemming Plaza, directing 
traffic, transporting students to 
medical and transportation ap- 
pointments, providing a campus 
security escort upon request, jump 
starting vehicles, helping get keys 
out of locked cars, checking build- 
ings at night and responding to 
fire alarms. 

Care Officers Set Plans 
for Next Year 

By Jennifer Wittey 

As the school year ap- 
proaches its end, new CARE lead- 
ers have been selected for next 
year. Most have not had time to 
think about specific plans for next 
year, however, the idea to get more 
students involved in CARE was a 
major objective. 

Libby Riano, next year's 
Assistant Chaplain, will be pro- 
gramming Friday night vespers. 
She hopes simple presentations 
rather than entertainment will be 
the focus of vespers in the coming 
year. "I think more than ever 
before, we need to present the 
matchless charms of Christ to the 
students," she said. 

Gary Collins hopes to get 
more students involved in spread- 
ing the Last Day message of the 

church through Campus Minis- 
tries. He wants to continue the 
work done this year in that depart- 

Taking over Student Mis- 
sions, Leslie Brooks wants to see 
more students on campus realize 
that they don't have to be over- 
seas or a task force worker to be a 
missionary. "People can witness 
by living a godly life," she said. 
Besides the normal activities of 
fund-raising and keeping in touch 
with student missionaries, she 
would like to initiate prayergroups 
for different student missionaries 
each week. 

CABL will be headed by 
Evan Adams. He wants to make 
the health message more appeal- 
ing to students so they will want to 
become more active.

streak flashes and a solid tone is emitted 
across the computer when an alarm is trig- 
gered. Immediately, the printers activate and 
report the exact location of the alarm, room, 
and occupants. Addressable smoke detectors 
are what makes this system unique to the 

However, all is not perfected. When 
the dirt or smoke goes beyond a certain level 
they are put into the alarm mode. The detec- 
tors are sensitive and accurate. However, they 
can not distinguish between dirt or fire. Imag- 
ine a cup of water. Drops of water and quarters 
are added until the cup overflows. The cup 
cannot regulate what is put into it or how often 
thai happens. This is the same idea with the 
alarms. For instance, some of the bathrooms 
in Thatcher are being renovated. The alarms 
were not covered and thus large amounts of 
dust and particles filled the detectors. The de- 
tector overflowed. Also, many of the students 
bum food in the kitchenettes. This is the same 
principle. "90% of the problems could be 
solved by simply installing windows that 
open," recommended Suzy Mazzot. However, 
the fire alarm systems which is still not in 
completion, have not been in the dorm more 
than 3 months. Dale Tyrrell suggests one of 
the problems is the computer is not yet pro- 
grammed to direct security to the detectors 
that need to be cleaned. 

Tyrrell, Campus Security Director, 
praises the new system on its up-to-date tech- 
nology. However, he realizes there is a prob- 
lem. "I'd like to clear the problems up. It has 
taken much too long to clear this thing up." 

Many are obviously concerned with 
the new system. Dean Qualley says, "This is a 
dangerous situation. If we had a real fire no 
one would leave. There's not been a fire drill 
all year. Every time the alarms go off (in 
Talge) there hasn't been a fire so there's been 
no reason to go out. The smoke detectors are 
not what's making it go off." The system is 
extremely sensitive and this seems to be a 
concern for Thatcher residents where steam, 
hairdryers and bumi food are common. "When 
they get it done and everything is right, it will 
be a good system. Most of the girls are leaving 
the dorm. They need 10 go out whether it is a 
malfunction or not or they will become com- 
placent," said Dean Engel. 

"The system works good. We need to 
learn as a department. If the computer is pro- 
grammed, the system works," said Tyrrell. 

The need for the new systems was not 
the many fires or increasing crime rate, but to 
foresee problems that might arise in the fu- 
ture. The residents have also been protected 
by the new Card Access system. The Access 
has been in operation for 6 weeks and is 
operating effectively. "Right after we put the 
system in operation ai Thatcher someone from 
Talge tried to use their card. His name, ID 
number, and time immediately appeared on 
our computer," said Tyrrell. "People just want 
to see what will happen." Simply put the 
system locks and unlocks doors when speci- 
fied by the deans. Tyrrell siiys the system was 
installed for the security of the residents.

Letters to the Editor 

Turn up the Music 

Dear Editor, 

This may not seem like an important 
issue or a news break of monumental 
importance, but it often burdens my mind. I 
was noticing that each week in the Col- 
legedale church there have been some 
inconsistencies in their sound system. 
Friday night vespers, for example, was the 
Academy Music Festival concert. One song 
I particularly remember was ihe piano solo. 
I remember ibis smie because it couldn't be 
heard at all. How hard can it be to plug in 
the mic which is [here for ihc sole purpose 
picking up the amplifying the piano. 

It seems like the operators are not 
paying atteniion to things like the piano 
volume. Maybe they can'f keep their eyes 
off the huge and unnecessary organ (Has 
anyone heard of synthesizers?). 

I recall that during fourth summer 
session when I worked for Instructional 
Media, I always used a piano mic — it really 
is simple to hook up. I remember overhear- 
ing people later saying ihey noticed a real 
difference in the song services. Yes", you 
guessed it — they could hear the piano! 

Another thing I am sick of is the 
sound operators who are deaf. I am espe- 
cially tired of listening to the high fre- 
quency rings that often accompany most of 
the sermons in the Church. All they need to 
do is pull down the channel on the mixer to 
fix the problem. I can truly say that it is 
most annoying when someone is talking and 
they are accompanied by a squeeeeel. 

Since I am a seasoned audio profes- 
sional, I know that sound people seldom 
receive praise for anything they do. But 
they sure do gel the heat when they screw 
up. Remember two things: First, sound 
operators can never improve the input from 
the stage (singers, instruments, lecturers). 
Second, sound operators should do every- 

thing within their power to avoid feedback 
and dead mics. This creates tension among 
the stage and the operators. When the 
operator loses control, the audience gets 

I know there are lots of buttons and 
dials on the mixer in the Church. If you are 
not 100% positive on how it works, call me 
at ext. #3035 and I will be glad to meet with 
you and explain it. And knowing is half the

Let Us Fight 
the Fires 

Dear Editor, 

I am writing this letter not only as a 
local volunteer firefighler bul as a con 
cerned student here at Southern College 
imce the implementation of the new fire 
alarm/security device there has been noth- 
ing but problems. Problems not only with 
the device itself, but with Southern College 
security department 

I'm sure most dorm residents will 
agree that the new million dollar high-tech 
device is simply another budget blunder. 
The fire alarm is supposedly one of the best 
WE can buy because it can locate the 
precise location of the fire and make us all 
safer. Although the security device isn't 
fully operational yet, ihe fire alarm is. 
Sometimes ii works and sometimes it 

That leads me to the next problem. 
Southern College security department. Over 
the past several weeks, when the fire alarm 
really did work, the security department has 
not done their job. For example, on Sunday, 
March 8 there was a small fire in the girls 
dormitory. Our security department waited 
between 20-30 minutes after the alarm went 
off to even notify the fire department. When 
the fire department finally arrived on the 
scene they were instructed by the security 
department that the new fire alarm "pre- 
cisely" located the fire on the 3rd floor. It 
turned out to be on the 2nd floor. If that 
wasn't bad enough, on Thursday, March 19 
another small fire in the girls dormitory 
produced the same result. This time security 
worked a little quicker and called the fire 
department in only about 15 minutes and 
actually knew where the fire was. 

First, I realize the security depart- 
ment is trying to save the fire department 
the "hassle" of coming out on ALL of the 
false alarms this million dollar high-tech de- 
vice creates. But really, this is what the fire 
department is here for. I cannot speak for all 
of the members of the department, but I'm 
sure they would rather come out for a false 
alarm than to be called AFTER IT IS TOO 
LATE and someone has been hurt or killed. 
Second, this waiting by the security 
department not only makes the local fire de- 
partment seem slow, but undependable. The 
Tri-Community Volunteer Fire Department 
is a very organized and professional organi- 
zation and is neither slow or undependable. 
Averaging approximately 3 calls per day, 
the department almost always begins re- 
sponse in under 90 seconds. 

This type of behavior by Southern 
College security department is not only un- 
professional but is endangering every dorm 
resident. I hope when the security device is 
fully operational it will operate a little better 
than the security department will stop 
writing so many needless parking tickets 
and try and live up to their name of "secu- 
rity" department.

Stop the Waiting! 

Dear Editor: 

As we stand here in the girl's dorm 
lobby waning to sign up for rooms we 

cannot help bul feel what a ridiculous waste 
or lime this system incurs. 

The current system functions on a 
first come first served basis for an entire 
class-standing in one evening. This means 
there are approximately a hundred girls 
trying to stand in a single file line wasting 

As one can well imagine this is a 
very inefficient, cumbersome, time-consum- 
ing system. In addition, people began 
"camping" in the lobby as early as 1 1 a.m. 
despite the sign ruling this out. 

We have cited the following sugges- 
tions as possibilities for improving the 

1. Class Standing — This is still a 
good starting point, but should no be 
a sole consideration. 

2. Consider G.P.A. — As of now, 
a 3.5 will allow a dorm resident an extra 
hour after curfew. Why doesn't Distin- 
guished Dean's List invoke some extra 

3. "Squatter's" Rights — If a 
resident has any of the above qualifications, 
they should be able to reserve their room 

4. Worship Attendance — This is 
another possible consideration. 

The above criteria could be com- 
piled and a print out posted for the order of 
room sign-ups. This would save time,, 
tempers, ad avoid the present confusion.

Security — What Does It Mean? 

Security (n.) 1. Freedom from 
danger, care, or fear; feeling or condition of 
being safe. 2. Freedom from doubt; cer- 
tainty. 3. Overconfidence; carelessness. 

According to Webster, security can 
mean several things. However, at Southern 
College, I'm not sure which definition fits 

During the four years I've been at 
Southern, I've seen the security department 
change. It has gone from being nearly non- 
existent to over-existent. 

Security at Southern reminds me of 
the volume on a sound system. The volume 
was so low, no one could hear the music. 
But once attention was brought to the low 
volume, the level was increased. Only, the 
volume didn't stop rising; it kept getting 
louder. Now, it's to the point where it's so 
loud, it has become annoying. 

All year, I've heard complaints 
about the security department. Many 
Southern students are frustrated with how 
things are handled regarding their safety. 

Before I continue, let me state that I 
agree with the concept of security and 
safety. I realize that rules must be made and 
enforced in order to maintain order. In fact, 
I think Southern has done good things in 
recent years to improve campus safety. For 
example, the new lighting system and 
parking lights around campus have greatly 
improved night-time security. 

However, there are some things that 
have bothered me in regards to the "new 
and improved" safety department. 

1. The squad car. I've thought 
much about the reasons for the squad car. I 
suppose it might allow for better mobility in 
chasing someone or something, and it might 
even add a little prestige to the security 

service; but I still cannot justify in my mind 
why we need one. First of all, the campus 
is not that big. It also takes a lot of gas to 
run a squad car both day and night. My 
suggestion would be to invest the money 
spent on gas and buy a few electric-powered 
golf carts. These would allow the security 
officers to patrol more of the campus in 
much less time. It would also eliminate the 
gasoline expenses. 

2. The uniforms. Personally, the 
uniforms don't impress me. I believe there 
should be something to distinguish the 
officers from everyone else; however, 
we've carried it to an extreme: our security 
officers could be mistaken for actual police- 
men. I suggest losing some of the extra 
paraphernalia, such as the handcuffs and 
hats. I guess my real question is: "Who are 
we trying to impress?" 

3. Ticketing procedures. Yes, I've 
received a few myself. And once this 
editorial is printed, I'm sure I'll be getting 
plenty more. Most students on campus 
know what it feels like to find a ticket 
attached to their windshield. I agree with 
the concept of ticketing cars parked in 
unauthorized areas and issuing tickets for 
traffic violations on campus. But there 
seems to be a major flaw in the system. The 
problem, I believe, lies in the appeal proc- 
ess. I've talked to many students who have 
had good reasons for parking in certain 
places, but their appeals were denied. I 
know that in years past the security depart- 
ment used a traffic court to decide these 
cases; but there is no such system presently 
being used. In fairness to everyone, I 
suggest the reinstitution of this traffic court. 

4. Attitude of security officers. 
This is by far the touchiest issue in this 

editorial. Maybe it has something to do 
with the new uniforms, but I've noticed that 
some of the officers (I don't mean every 
officer) need to change their attitudes a 
little. These officers need to remember that 
they are students too, and they still must 
respect the rights and privacy of others. A 
friend of mine has on many occasions been 
rudely treated by officers. For example, 
when he and his girlfriend were sitting in 
his car (this has happened more than a 
couple of times) in a lighted part of campus, 
an officer in the squad car turned his lights 
into my friend's car and just watched them 
for quite a few minutes. The officer was 
waiting for them to either leave the car or 
drive off. 

My question is: "What's the pur- 
pose behind this?" The answer, I suppose, 
would be; "Well, he might be molesting his 
girlfriend in the car." If the officer is so 
concerned, why didn't he get out of the 
squad car and come over to the car and see 
if everything was o.k., instead of shining his 
bright lights in the car. Who knows, my 
friend could have driven off and molested 
his girlfriend somewhere else. I could go 
on about officers and their attitudes, but 
space doesn't permit. 

Let me now say that there are many 
officers who handle their responsibility with 
professionalism, and act appropriately 
toward their fellow students and faculty. I 
commend them for this and I only wish they 
were all like that. 

To sum up the purpose of this 
editorial, I would say that we must look at 
the problems and find solutions. I am 
thankful for the security department, but I 
think it must re-think some of its policies 
and procedures. If we don't change, the 
volume will keep getting louder and louder. 


The View from Up Here 

Act on Fact, Not Fiction 

You've seen it before. How many 
i have you been scared by the reports 
of impending doom if we don't stop 
putting gigantic holes in our ozone layer? 
What arc the animals going to do if we 
don't stop intruding onto their land? What 
are we going to do about pollution? 

Well, there's a word for people 
who are always angry and protesting 
something — activist. The dictionary 
definition of activist explains it as a theory 
or practice based on militant action. Do 
these people realK have a right 10 be 
militant about their beliefs? 

Everyone that's worried about our 
ozone layer has either heard reports from 
the liberal media or from scientists who 
get their information from computer simu- 
lations. How factual is that? There is no 
hole, either, just areas of depletion, which 
is a natural occurrence. 

You might ask about all of the skin 
cancer reports. The simple fact of the 
matter is that people stay out in the sun 
more frequently ami lor longer periods of 
lime than they used to. What do you 
expect from a tan-crazed world? Skin 
;r is an obvious consequence. 

By P J. Lambeth 

Well, you might ask, what about all 
of the damaging pollution and CFC's? It is 
a fact that 96% of all greenhouse gasses are 
emitted by nature, i.e. volcanos. Knowing 
this, how has the world survived all of these 
years against that kind of assault? What do 
these environmental activists want us to do, 
plug every cow, human, and volcano on the 
face of the Earth? This is obviously not the 
answer, and the Earth is doing fine so far. 

Case in point: Remember when the 
scientists were telling everyone that global 
warming was going to melt the ice caps and 
raise sea level so high that Florida would go 
under? Well, new studies show that sea 
level is steadily dropping. The media didn't 
make a big deal about that, though. 

And what about these animal rights 
activists? Now don't get me wrong, I don't 
endorse unnecessary cosmetic testing on 
helpless bunnies, but this spotted owl 
business is ridiculous. This same radical 
group of people who are always crying 
about our economy have effectively termi- 
nated over 10,000 industrial jobs because 
they believe that the spotted owl couldn't 
find another home. Maybe you've heard 
about the swallow's famous return to Capis- 

trano. It happens every year and they 
always come back to the same place. It 
just so happened that this year has seen 
new civilian development in Capistrano. 
So, did all of those swallows just keel over 
dead when they saw their habitat invaded? 
No. They went to California and found 
another place to live. I think the spotted 
owl could do the same. 

My point is that the Earth is amaz- 
ingly rejuvenescent. Yes, tragedies like oil 
spills have horrible immediate effects and 
should be prevented at all costs, but we 
haven't doomed Alaska to one giant 
wasteland of oil with one Exxon tanker. 
Since that spill, Alaska has had record 
numbers of salmon hauls. 

When God gave man the Earth, He 
told us to take care of it and we obviously 
haven't done a good job. We have had un- 
necessary pollution and animal species 
have become extinct because of humans. 
I'm not denying that we're corrupt. But 
beware the alarmists, liberals, and extrem- 
ists, who predict an all-out Apocalypse if 
we don't throw away all of our air condi- 
tioners by 1995. Just remember, you can't 
believe everything you hear. 


T he View From Down Here 

The Forgotten Issue 

The 1992 Presidential campaign 
will eventually be judged for what it 

didn't say. rather than what it did. "What 
should have been" will be the view 
historians take of the political race long 
after the campaign ads, the stumping, and 
the confetti have passed. 

Money, jobs, and Japan-bashing 
seem to be the only major arenas to be 
entered this year. Sure, health care, too, 
but that major mountain NO candidate ' 
really wants to tackle with any true vigor. 
Issues that really count don't count for 
much in politics, 1992 style. And proba- 
bly the most overlooked issue— perhaps 
[he •' (orgotten issue"— is the environ- 
ment. So then, why should our natural 
resources be an issue, anyway? 

First, environmentalism could be

nomic snuggles. We eould put people to

Engineers and technicians— lots of skilled

more efficient and safe ways of production

projects like reforrestation and waste dis- 
posal and management. Environmentalism 
doesn't have to be at odds with business.

Second, the declining condition of 
the environment (and there is really no solid 
argument in refuting this claim) in all 
likelihood is contributing to the rise in 
health care problems. More and more we 
are realizing that air polution, overexposure 
to the sun, and contaminated water are 
major contributors to cancer and other 
diseases. We save health care costs in the 
long run because of a cleaner atmosphere

Thirdly, when we lose our respect 
for America as a land, we are losing our 
very heritage. "This great land" is cer- 
tainly more than dirt, trees, and rivers — 
but it is these things as well. Our care- 
lessness with the land which lies between 
"sea and shining sea" is a testament to a 
larger carelessness — a carelessness with 
the great principles this country suppos- 
edly stands for. 

For those who say the environ- 
mental "scare" is nothing but that, I wish I 
had the money to fly you to the acid lakes 
in the Northeast, upper Midwest, or within 
our northern neighbor, Canada. Or maybe 
to Los Angeles to see (or not to see) this 
scare. Or maybe to a big city's harbor. 
Ormaybe to a beach with dirty needle and 
other dangerous debris. 

1992 is not the time to forget what 
is important. It's too bad that "King 
George" Bush and "Slick Willy" Clinton 
don't remember.

Special Valuegenisis Report 

Many students may remember taking 
part in the VALUEGENESIS study either at 
Southern College or at their academy. The 
survey was performed to discover where youth 
acquired their values. While the research 
presented many positive results about the youth 
and the church, some concerns were noted. 
The faculty senate recently formed a commit- 
tee to review (he report and give study as to 
how it can be applied to Southern College. In 
an interview with Dr. Helmut Ott, chairman of 
this committee, he describes his personal ob- 
servations of the Valuegenesis study. 

Southern Accent — It seems that the 
church is kind of worried about the results of the 
study. What seems to be the problem? 

Helmut Ott— The North American Di- 
vision just released an official report that inter- 
prets the results of the study and discusses its most 
significant implications. On the basis of this 
report, I'd say there are three basic problem areas. 
One relates to our young people's perception of 
and relationship with the church. According to the 
report, "Only 44 percent of Adventist youth say, 
'My church feels warm.' by way of contrast, 63 
percent of mainline Protestant youth and 74 per- 
cent of Southern Baptist youth say their congrega- 
tions feel warm." After pondering the results of 
the study, the authors o( the report conclude that, 
"The majority of high school youth do not feel at 
ease in church." 

Another major problem relates to the role 
the church plays in our young people's study and 
intellectual understanding of spiritual truth. Judg- 
ing by their observations, it seems that the way we 
go about helping our young people develop a 
belief system— our method of teaching religious 
matters — is not adequate. The youth Find it nei- 
ther appealing nor very efficient. The study 
shows that "only 3 1 percent feel that their church 
challenges their thinking." Equally disturbing is 
the fact that "only 24 percent of the twelfth grad- 
ers" say that they "leam a lot" in their church. 
Beyond that, many do not feel there is an attitude 
of openness and tolerance to different ideas in the 

The third main problem area has to do 
with our young people's unsatisfactory religious 
experience. This is really a two-sided problem. 
One side is theological, the other experiential, and 
the two compliment and reinforce each other. The 
study reveals thedisturbing fact thatalarge number 
of the youth interviewed have no assurance of sal- 
vation. This should not be construed to mean that 
they have no interest in religious matters since. 

according to the report, "Most Adventist youth 
desire a deeper and more certain relationship with 
God." The good new of this is that they are open 
to God; the bad news is that they don't have a 
satisfying relationship with Him. The resulting 
uncertainty about their standing with God is so 
deep that "The thought of Christ's return brings 
fear to the majority of Adventist youth, Rather 
than eager anticipation." 

SA — Why is the experience of the Adventist 
youth so different? Why are they afraid of the 
Second Coming? 

HO— That's a complex issue, as you know. But 
I think the authors of this report point us to the 
answer to your question when they indicate that 
the theological root of our young people's lack of 
assurance is a misunderstanding of what consti- 
tutes the basis of our salvation. They say quite 
emphatically that, "Valuegenesis data strongly 
warns that a works nneniutiun is eroding the faith 
our youth have in Jesus." 

3 try to live a good life.'" 

n by "works c 

"ihe> ii 

j I .•■.,-: 

SA — What exactly do they i 

HO— By "works orientation 
that salvation is given to us t 
or have done good works..." They rightly point 
out that it "subtly erodes our confidence in Christ. 
It shifts the emphasis to what we do or do not do. 
In such an orientation, belief in God' 
s promises of salvation becomes a minor consid- 
eration. Rules and regulations become the major 
emphasis. Religion becomes self-centered rather 
than Christ-centered." 

For the sake of comparison, I'll also give 
you their definition of a "grace orientation" which 
represents the opposite side of the theological 
spectrum. "A grace orientation is a belief that 
salvation is given to us only because of the good- 
ness of Jesus, His atoning death, and the perfect 
life He lived on earth. It focuses completely on 
God's goodness in offering us this gift, which we 
can neveream by ourselves, and on the wonderful 
promises of God." 

The official report states that the majority 
of youth who responded to the Valuegenesis 
questionnaire have a works orientation instead of 
grace orientation. Notice some of the percentages 
they mention that reflect a works orientation: 
"Eighty-three percent believe that 'To be save, I 
have to live by God's rules.' Fifty-eight percent 
of Adventist youth believe that they can earn 
salvation through personal effort... Sixty-two 
percent believe that 'the way to be accepted by 


SA— What causes Adventist young people to be 
afraid of the second coming of Jesus? 
HO— The theological understanding of how we 
can be saved results in the lack of assurance 
When we take God at His word and accept His 
plan of redemption according to which etemal life 
is given to us on the basis of our faith relationship 
with Jesus Christ as ourpersonal Savior, we know 
where we stand,

SA — The study shows that a large number of 
Adventist youth do not follow the lifestyle advo- 
cated by the church: Don't you think that if we 
shift the emphasis from rules and standards to 
assurance in Christ many more young people — 
and older ones for that matter — will become care- 
less about sin? 
HO— That's really a very old issue that is raised 
quite frequently in Adventist circles. It was first 
brought up by some intensely religious people 
when they heard Paul preaching the gospel. 
Paul's emphasis on faith in Jesus and His re- 
demptive work on the sinner's behalf disturbed 
them greatly because the law, not the Savior, was 
at the center of their theological construct. The 
fact that they were concerned with sin more than 
with grace, with being good and doing right 
more than with living in a saving relationship 
with God through faith in Jesus Christ shows that 
they, too, had a works orientation. 

But the answer was then and sliil is today 
a emphatic ",No, never!" On the contrary, I 
believe with all my heart that making the Savior 
central to our theology, to our teaching and 
preaching, and to our personal lives is the only 
way to either prevent or solve any and all sin 
problems we might encounter. God did not 
provide a different solution for each separate 
type of sin— say, the gospel to save us from the 
sins of the spirit and the law to help us overcome 
the sins of the flesh. Instead, G^d^rovidedJesus 
Christ as the only remedy for all sin . That was 
I [js : nission as the world's Redeemer. He was to 

Special Feature 

be named Jesus precisely because he would "save 
his people from their sins" (Matt. 1:21). 

SA — So where is the reason for concern? 
HO— It seems that some of us have become so ac- 
customed to using the law, the investigative judg- 
ment, the end of probation, guilt, fear and the de- 
sire to being number one in heaven as prime mo- 
tivators that we are unable to understand that true 
obedience is possible only when we are unable to 
understand that true obedience is possible only 
when it is bom in and nourished by a personal faith 
relationship with Jesus Christ. But we must rec- 
ognize that while artificial motivators like the 
ones I just mentioned can produce temporary ex- 
ternal results. 
they cannot 
foster genu- 
ine obedi- 

does indeed 

people from 

the Savior 

and enable us 
to render obe- 
dience to God 

lude and 
love — the only motives that can make our obedi- 
ence acceptable to Him. 

So if the preaching of Jesus Christ and the 
salvation He provides does not solve the problem 
of legalism as well as the problem of lawlessness, 
then nothing else will do it. As is the case with all 
other aberrations, love for the sinful can be dis- 
placed only by the love of Jesus in the heart. 
Hence, if lifting up the Savior so that He may draw 
all sinners to Himself — self-loving legalists and 
sin-loving libertines alike — does not correct the 
situation, then a greater emphasis on the law and 
on what some people call "victorious living" is 
most definitely destined to fail. 

One does not bring about revival and 
reformation by preaching "revival and reforma- 
tion;" nor does one foster victorious living by 
preaching "victorious living;" much less does one 
grow in character perfection by preaching "char- 
acter perfection." The only way to achieve these 
and any other objectives worth attaining is to 
restore Jesus Christ to the center where He be- 
longs. Only as He becomes first and foremost, the 
subject above all subjects, the true reality of which 
we partake by faith, will we see spiritual life 
coming back to those who are lifeless in the 
church. There simply is no other way! 

SA — Why do you think so many Advcntist young 
people have such a markedly works orientation? 
HO — That is one of the more sobering and pain- 
ful revelations of the study because it throws the 
hot potato right on the lap of all who play a part in 
the religious formation of our youth. There are 
"Iher problems we can rightly blame on TV. on 
the materialistic and pleasure oriented society in 
which we live, or even on the young people them- 
selves for the poor attitudes they sometimes ex- 
bib", Hie unwise choices they often make or the 

bad company they keep. But I don't think we can 
argue convincingly that these are the sources 
where our young people get their works centered 
religion. This is a theological problem, and they 
learn their theology from us, the church. So 
whether we are parents, teachers, pastors or just 
lay members, we have to look at ourselves as the 
source of this one. And I think we all need to 
closely examine not just what we say we believe 
when we discuss religion, but what we really 
believe as revealed in our daily lives. 

SA — Why do you think young people do not feel 
intellectually challenged by the church and feel 
they are not learning much? 
HO — The best I can do in such limited space is to 
give you a partial answer by contrasting two 
radically different conceptions "f truth and their 
respective teaching methods. The church at Rome 
believes that the Bible can be properly interpreted 
and religious truth correctly defined only by the 
church hierarchy. Therefore, only the church 
fathers, the church councils and the pope — who 
believed to be infallible — can make decisions 
concerning what is and what is not truth. In this 
context, religious instruction takes the form of in- 
doctrination. Personal investigation becomes 
taboo. And those who teach simply take the truths 
established by the church and pass them on to the 
next generation. What is of utmost importance is 
that they all believe exactly what they are taught; 
that every idea they hold and every view they 
express be in full harmony with the official creed 
of the church. 

Adventists have a radically different 
perspective. We believe that only God is infal- 
lible, that truth is dynamic and so profound that it 
cannot be frozen in a creed, and that the Bible is 
our final authority in all matters of faith and 
practice. What is up utmost importance to us is 
that every doctrine we endorse, every idea we 
hold, every view we express be totally based on 
and in full correspondence v. ith the clear and un- 
adulterated teachings of the Scripture. In har- 
mony with the biblical principle of the priesthood 
of all believers, we also believe that every mem- 
ber of the body of Christ has a personal and active 
part to play in the corporate search for a deeper 
understanding and a more accurate articulation of 
truth. So while in Rome the key question is, 
"What does the church teach''" But in Adventism, 
it must be "What do the Scriptures say?" 

Indoctrination is obviously not the right 
methodology for the religious education we pro- 
vide. We simply cannot afford having an attitude 
that says something like: "The pioneers discov- 
ered the truth. I have learned it all from them. So 
sit down and listen up, I'll tell you all about it." If 
that is our approach, we are in the wrong camp. 
When we teach using such a methodology, we fail 
our youth in several ways. We deprive them of the 
challenge and excitement of personal investiga- 
tion, and of the growth and mind expansion that 
comes from w re si I m l' v. ith hit; ideas and profound 
spiritual truths. Worse still, we rob them of the 
opportunity to personally hear God's word speak- 
ing directly to their conscience as they search the 
Scriptures for themselves. And we fail to equip 
them to be active, creative, and reliable partici- 
pants in the ongoing theological dialog of the 

S A — So what should be the "Advent ist" approach? 
HO — Education experts tell us that in order to be 
adequate, a methodology must be relevant to the 
subject matter, the purpose of the course and the 
nature of the learners. Now. the Bible is not and 
end in itself, but a means to an end. It does not 
contain special information which when correctly 
understood and adequately memorized brings 
eternal life. Instead, it wasgiven ti reveal to us our 
desperate condition as lost sinners on one hand, 
and the gracious redemption < rod has provided in 
His Son on the other, in order to move us to accept 
Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. John reveals 
the true role of Scripture when he says that the 

things he wrote "are written that you may believe 
that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that 
believing you may have life in His name" (John 
20:3 1 , RSV). That, I believe, is also the ultimate 
objective of Christian religious instruction. 

So what do I think is the role of the church 
as an agency of religious education? I'll mention 
three aspects of it: 1. Help the learners/members 
develop the attitudes, acquire theskills. and master 
the tools needed for effective Bible study. 2. 
Bring them into personal contact with and assist 
them in their investigation of Scripture. 3. Pro- 
vide an environment conducive to the establish- 
ment and relationship with Jesus Christ. Such a 
program is possible only where the cross of Cal- 
vary is at the center of everything. Where Jesus 
accepted as true; not even as the most important 
doctrine to be placed at the top of the list. But as 
a living Savior who yesterday died on our behalf, 
today is applying the benefits of His atoning death 

SA — Why do the youth perceive the church as 
being cold, unfnendh. unjn.epiing — and how 
can that situation be changed? 
HO — I think we both know that there are many 
contributing factors involved. But in essence it is 
the same problem we have been discussing all 
along, namely too much emphasis on law-keep- 
ing and not enough on a personal faith relation- 
ship with Jesus Christ. You see, what makes a 
church spiritually warm and friendly is the fruit of 
the Spirit in the life of its members. But when 
love, joy, peace, kindness, faithfulness are miss- 
ing, the church cannot be warm. 

Human beings practice many rituals to 
create at least a semblance of friendliness. They 
can also learn to be courteous and kind, and 
develop traits that resemble the fruit of the Spirit. 
But they cannot create the authentic article. The 
law is also powerless to produce these qualities is 
the human heart. That is why a greater emphasis 
on the law and obedience just makes people 
exacting and dry, judgmental and patronizing. 
That is also why people with a works orientation 
never become truly joyful, kind, peaceful, and 
loving individuals. 

The unique fruit of the Spirit can grow 
only on the branches thai have a living connection 
with the vine. So there is a cause-effect relation- 
ship here; a chain reaction, as it were. When we 
accept Jesus Christ by faith: we receive the Spirit; 
who produces the character traits, that make us the 
peaceful and kind, loving and joyful individuals; 
who form a "warm" church whenever they as- 
semble to worship their Redeemer. This is an- 
other compelling piece of evidence that every- 
thing in our spiritual lives begins and ends with 
the Savior. Without Jesus Christ — not something 
He gives to us. such as power, guidance, or wis- 
dom, by Hirn_as_arjerson — we can do nothing. He 
told us so. 

SA — Where do wc go from here? 
HO— I think we must first create the right kind of 
atmosphere in our midst. We need a special 
awareness, or conscience; a unique attitude, a 
peculiar mind set. You see, Jesus never forces 
Himself on anyone. The scriptural scenario pic- 
tures Him outside the church, knocking at the door 
and waiting. According to this symbolic repre- 
sentation, our first order of business as a church 
and as individuals is to answer the door so that He 
may come in. The problem is that as sinful, proud, 
and proud self-relying human beings, we will bet 
Jesus into our lives only when we are utterly 
convinced that we cannot manage in any other 
way. We will allow I Inn to lake charge only when 
we fully believe thai lie is indeed ihe true solution 
to our problem, the only real answer to our need. 
That is why I believe our job as a committee must 
begin with helping us to realize our desperate 
need of a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. 
We have tried other things long enough. Let's 
give the Savior a fair chance. ^^^^^^^

Tournament Euphoria 
Hits Talge 

Dorm Begins Its Second Annual Two-Man 
Basketball Tournament 

p David Beckworth and Km; Rollins 

Admidst the excitement and hoopla of the 
NCAA Basketball Tournament, Southern 
College has been experiencing a little "March 
Madness" of its own. Just like the "sweet 
sixteen" in the NCAA, Dean Qualley and John 
Sager have compiled sixteen two-man teams, 
in the second annual Talge Hall Basketball 

Each team is placed in one of the four 
brackets according to seed and must win two 
of three games to move on to the next and each 
successive round. The real challenge lies in 
beating the favored teams. The high seeded 
teams include Taylor-KroU, Appel-Appel, 
and Pulliam-Baguidy. 

The rules of two-man basketball are slightly 
different from those of regular basketball: 

* A game is won when one team makes 1 

* The winning team is the first to win two 
out of three games. 

* There is no three-second rule. 

* The fouls are called by the offense. Only 
the finals will be officiated. 

* The team listed first on the chart takes the 

* All fouls are taken out at the back line. 

* Teams must clear possessions by going 
past the free-throw line. 

Players report to senior Sager. Last year's 
winners were Rich Roeske and Alan Hevener 
They beat Rob Taylor and Jeff Wood. Taylor, 
who is playing again this year, is favored to 
place high in this year's competition. 

The tournament should bring out some of 
this year's best playmaking and dunking ac- 
cording to Qualley. As basketball junkie, 
Tony Thedford put it, "The expectations and 
hype surrounding the toumamet causes the 
players to rise to another level of play." Turn- 
out has been remarkable too, as students have 
been filling up Talge Hall's basketball court 
every evening to see this tournament unfold, 

Although the NCAA Tournament hosts the 
best teams in the nation, Talge Hall offers Ihe 
best two man teams of Southern. And while 
the NCAA can sport the likes of Christian 
Laetner, Jimmy Jackson, and Don McLean, 
we entertain such Southern playground leg- 
ends as Donny Baguidy, Rob Taylor, and 
Ricky Hayes. 


Cary Greer is the Accent 
Athlete of the Week for his de- 
fense and leadership on the 
indoor hockey court. Greer had 
three goals in the game against 
Scott Bowes's team. He played 
excellent defense, and was the 

key to stopping the offensive 
threat of the line of Scott Ram- 
sey, Jody Travis and Bowes. 
Greer is a team player, always 
involving his entire team in the 
game, and exhibits good sports- 
manship throughout each game. 

To the casual observer,

sisting of smashing body checks, 
flying hockey pucks and all out 
brawls. Occaisionally tempers 
"~-n and players get hurt. 

The Accent's first-ever 
Fan of the Week knows all about 
the violence of hockey. A loose 
hockey stick struck Shawna 
Fulbright in the face as she was 
watching a game Monday, March 
16, but she stayed in her place 
through the rest of the game, 
overcoming the pain with her 
dedication to watching her boy- 
friend, Jody Travis play — and 

The incident happened as 
Shawna sat along the stage 
watching the game. Davy Jo 
Swinyar, nursing a hurt knee, 
lost his temperas well ashis con- 
trol of his hockey stick and sent 
it flying. The stick hit Shawna 

on the cheek, alsocausing a black 

"It really hurt." said 
Shawna. "1 felt like bawling my 
head off, but 1 didn't." Shawna 
stayed on the sidelines for the 
rest of the game. "I guess it was 
my dedication to watching Jody 
play," she said. "I never missed 
one of his hockey games, and I 
never missed his basketball 
games either." Jody, in turn, did 
his part. "He came over and 
checked upon me,"says Shawna. 
Then he went out and played as 
his team, Bowes, lost 7 to 5. "I 
think that shows even more dedi- 
cation," says Jody. "She stuck 
by us even when we lost." 

Shawna still likes hockey. 
"It's very rough, but exciting to 
watch," she said. Sports fans can 
count on Shawna Fulbright grac- 
ing the sidelines of many more 
games to come, despite the cir- 
cumstances, and that is what 
makes her our Fan of the Week.

Gym-Masters Preparing for Home Show 

Team Currently Touring in Florida 

The Gym-Masters are on the road again. 
They left yesterday for central Florida as the 
last trip before their home show April 4. 

Scheduled is an anti-drug assembly at a 
public high school in Avon Park, a show at a 
health fair and a community show. They will 
also conduct Sabbath School at the Avon Park 
SDA Church and will entertain at a Forest 
Lake alumni program. Last is an annual stop 
at Wet 'N Wild before coming home on Sun- 

During this school year, the team has per- 
formed about 25 shows at local high schools, 
Andrews University, Adventist academies, 
Georgia State Penitentiary, and half-time 
shows at NBA games. At each of these shows, 
team-members have exemplified a drug-free 

"We expected this year to be a rebuilding 
year after we lost two-thirds of our team at the 
end of last year," said Coach Ted Evans. "But 
in reality, it has been the opposite. We have a 
very young team, but the talent is good, if not 
better than, what we have had in the past." 
Evans said this is the biggest team ever with 
42 members. Previously, the largest team had 
35 members.

This year's home show will look different 
because Southern's centennial colors have 
been adopted as the team colors. Coach Steve 
Jaecks said the team also has several new 
routines. "The show will be the same as in the 
past in that we will be performing the tradi- 
tional tributes to our country and to our God," 

Jaecks said. The show will have 13 routines 
and four drugskits. Our final routine, wWcl

PDA - "Cool It" 

By Dr. David Smith 

Spring has sprung. The Atlanta Braves 
have started spring training, forsythias 
and redbuds are radiating color, March 
winds are gusting, sap is flowing in the 
trees, and at Southern College, hormones 
are also flowing. Yes, hormones. Spring 
brings to the SC campus brilliant displays 
of spring flowers and embarrassing 
displays of PDA (public display of affec- 

One can't miss the show. Heading to 
class the other morning, I noticed a 
student sharing a "touching" goodbye 
with his girlfriend. As he turned to leave 
her, he patted her where he should not 
have patted her, especially in public with 
10 other students and 1 English teacher 
passing him on the sidewalk. Smiling 
innocently at all around him, he patted her 
where he should not have patted her, 
especially in public with 10 other students 
and 1 English teacher passing him on the 
sidewalk. Smiling innocently at all 
around him, he went on his way. Later 
that day, as I entered the cafeteria foyer, I 

noticed another student who had cornered 
her boyfriend against the wall. It was 
difficult to tell where one body began and 
the other ended. She turned and smiled at 
me as I passed, these experiences trigger 
flashbacks of couples sitting in church 
carressing one another, couples lying 
together in the Taylor Circle grass, and 
couples sitting on each other in various 
public campus locations. 

When I attended the University of Ten- 
nessee in Knoxville, I noticed 3 differences 
between the university and southern Colelge 
students. Southern College students dressed 
better and were more friendly than their 
university counterparts while the university 
students rarely exhibited PDA. 

Why? Why do Southern College stu- 
dents behave so undecorously? Perhaps SC 
couples are so wrapped up with each other 
they don't realize how offensive their 
actions are to others. I can understand. 
While attending a boarding academy, I 
spent one spring evening engaged in PDA 
with my girlfriend. A concerned Bible 

Take MeOut to the Ballgame 

These are the sounds of spring: the pop 
of the baseball into a glove, the crack of 
the bat and, oh yes, the sound of a 
Robin's song. 

The sounds of spring quickly move 
into summer noises: the national anthem 
Take Me Out to the Ball Game," and 
vendors crying, 

"Peanuts!...popcom!...CrackerJack l " 
Next the roar of the World Series nearly 
drowns out the screaming wind and the 
calls of the geese in the fall. Winter, in 
turn, is basically silent save for the whin- 
"igs of players and agents in contract 

The sounds of the year, especially the 
sounds of spring, belong to America's 
National Pastime, baseball, and they will 
"e ringing soon in a ballpark near you. 

1 o experience professional baseball, 
nowever, one must go to a professional 
bascba game. But it is not easy for the 
baseball fan to just drive to Atlanta for a 
nigra at the 'old ballgame' and get back at 
a decent hour. Worry no longer. Profes- 
S'onal baseball is alive and well in South- 
Lo k yard W ' th ' he chattano °ga 

Of course the Lookouts do not play in 
me same league with the Atlanta Braves 

or New York Yankees. They are a minor 
league team. The monor leagues serve as 
training ground for future major league 
players: so though you won't find Jose 
Canseco or Rob Dibble playing in Chat- 
tanooga this summer, many future stars will 
be passing through. 

Though the players aren't major league, 
the fun is much greater than at a big league 
game — even for the first-time fan. "You 
don't have to like baseball to have fun at a 
minor league game," says Matt Riley, director 
of Public Relations for the Lookouts. "It 
really is the place to be." 

For one thing, baseball is inexpensive 
entertainment. Tickets are $3.50 for general 
admission and $5.00 for field seals. Parking 
is another $2.00 and food items range from 
about $1 to $1.50 each. The stadium sells 
Chattanooga Lookouts items, as well as 
memorabilia from all 28 major league 
teams — including the brand new Florida 
Marlins and Colorado Rockies. 

And baseball is entertainment. "It's just 
the nature of baseball that unlike a movie, 
every game is different," says Riley. "You 
never know what's going to happen." What 
the baseball fan can count on are numerous 
giveaways during each game of everything 
from suits to meals at local reslraunts. Every 

teacher pulled me aside and advised me to 
"cool" it. What's his problem? I thought 
Several years later I apologized to that 
teacher for my actions. I had matured 
enough to realize how inappropriate my 
behavior had been. Now I can appreciate 
Moms Venden's confession that he used to 
dream about what he would like to do to the 
couple who consistently make out in his 
Bible class. 

SC students, your PDA may not embar- 
rass you, but it certainly does others. Please 
be mature enough to recognize this and save 
your PDA for BTA (Biology Trail Affec- 
tion). Like Solomon said — a time and a 
place for everything. 

In Bible times, according to 2 Samual 
11:1, young men went to war in the spring. 
Today, spring sends young men to Thatcher 
Hall. Thai's OK. In spring sap flows and 
hormones flow. That's nature's way. But 
while spring is springing, let's be consider- 
ate and Southern College a friendly, not an 
embarrassing place. 

game also has several on-field contests 
and appearances by the Lookouts' 
mascot. Rocky Raccoon. Weekend 
games often include special events, such 
as cap day or Famous Chicken night. 
The greatest thing about a Chat- 
tanooga Lookouts game is the ballpark, 
Engel Stadium. It is found of 3rd Street, 
just past Erlanger Medical Center, 
coming from the Amnicola Highway. 

Walking into Engel Stadium, which 
was built in 1929, is just like walking 
into history. The general admission 
seats are the same. Straight-backed, 
wooden seats found in ballparks 60 years 
ago. The baseball fan has only to look at 
the low-hanging electric lights, red-brick 
walls, and real grass turf to know that 
Engel Stadium is the home of baseball as 
it was and as it was meant to be. Be- 
cause of its aura, Engel Stadium was 
once called the Commiskey of the South, 
after the former home of the Chicago 
White Sox, which was known as the 
most beautiful park in baseball. 

Engel Stadium is also the home of a 
lot of history. Here in 1931 a 17-year- 
old Chattanooga girl named Jackie 
Mitchell stuck out both Babe Ruth and 
Lou Gehrig in an exhibition game 
between the Lookouts and the New York 
Yankees. Satchel Paige, one of the 
greatest pitchers in baseball history, 
pitched here for the Chattanooga Black 
Lookouts before blacks were allowed to 
play in the major leagues. (Paige later 
played in the major leagues, even start- 
ing a game for the Kansas City Athletics 
at the age of 51.) Other Hall-of-Famers 
who have played for Chattanooga in- 
clude Rogers Hornsby, Ferguson Jenkins 
and Harmon Killebrew, who hit 573 
home runs in the major leagues. 

The 'sounds of spring' and the 'boys 
of summer' will be found at Engel Sta- 
dium starting April 9th. "Engel Stadium 
is the place to be as far as inexpensive 
entertainment is concerned," says Riley. 
"We have a homey atmosphere, free 
autographs, and you can still sit on the 
first base line and talk to the players." 
Engel Stadium is a homey ballpark. 
In fact, all it's missing is Mom and apple 

Destiny Gears up for Home Show 

Upon entering the from door of 
Lynn Wood Hall on a recent 
Tuesday night, one would likely 
hear voices. A forceful voice, a 
soft voice, and lots of voices in 
between. It's Destiny. 

The campus drama group has 
been rehearsing for its Vespers 
home show on April 3. "As home 
show nears, we are seeing it all 
come together, and we're getting 
a glimpse of what the audience 
will see," said Donna Denton. "It's 

The troupe is led by Student 
Director Rick Mann, a junior. 
Member include: James Appel, 
Jeannie Bradley, Delton Chen, 
Tim Cross, Donna Denlon, 
Tamara Durrette, Tricia Greene, 
MariaRodriquez, Mickey Sayles, 
and Caroline Young. 

At this particular Tuesday 
evening practice session. Destiny 
members were separated into two 
groups. Four of the students 
headed for a smaller room, and 
the remaining members stood on 
the stage and read or recited lines. 
Mann leaned on a small wooden 
podium facing the stage and lis- 
tened. Occasionally, he called out 
such comments as, "You have to 
be vocally dynamic," and "Slow 
down and take your lime." 

"It's important for us to get the 
right tone and inflection in our 
voices. We go over and over and 
over the lines, and constantly see 
new things," Denton said. She 

The audience has only 
one chance to understand. Itisour 
job to portray everything we see 
in the lines to the audience." 

Durrette said, "A lot of prayer" 
goes into the performances and 
practices. "We pray that the Holy 
Spirit makes up for our inadequa- 
cies so that by the time it reaches 
the audience, what we put out is a 
different product," she said. "The 
Holy Spirit reaches out and draws 
people in through us." 

This year, Destiny's audiences 

have included academies, a youth 
conference, a secular campus 
Bible conference, the Georgia- 
Cumberland Bible Conference, 
and a Youth-to-Youth conference. 
"I think we have a real opportu- 
nity to reach people in a way no 
other medium can," Mann said. 
"It's one of the most powerful 
ways to reach young people be- 
cause it's young people relating to 
young people." 

Although memorizing lines 
obviously requires time and de- 

termination, several members 
mentioned their biggest reward- 
bringing audience members closer 
to Christ. "Sometimes their re- 
sponses are inspirational and very 
touching,"Rodriquezsaid. "Once 
when we performed for a Bible 
conference for students in secular 
schools, a girl came up and thanked 
us so much. She said we had been 
an inspiration, and she felt closer

I'm walking so I'll ignore all the "Do 
Not Enter" signs. There seems to be lots of 
places you can "get out of but not "into" 
along Industrial Drive. Down the spacious 
swaths of asphalt, past Angelica, past 
Somaco Auto Body, and in front of the 
Service Department and UPS. On St. Pat- 
rick's Day, Becky Bolton and her son, J. 
William, dressed in alt shades of green, 
were standing in front of those doors fran- 
tically waving both arms and shouting at 
passersby. Let me tell you, it was a very 

greening experience! 

The parking lots near the west end of Brock 
Hall seem to attract a versatile crowd. I saw 
cars from: New York, Massachusetts, Flor- 
ida, Maryland (its tag has a Great Blue Heron 
and cattails emblazoned on it), Oklahoma, 
New/Nouveau Brunswick, New Jersey, Ore- 
gon (a Douglas Fir on the tag), Ontario and 
Indiana. Along the way I met red-headed 
AmyBeckworth(she'soneof lOAmy'shere), 
editor of Southern Memories; she assured me 
that "everything is great — all the copy is in — 
the annual will be out on time — we've had a 
terrific school-year to report." 

OK — a quick jump from the parking lots to 
one of the promenade cement benches (this 
one has some daffodils beside it and in frontof 
it is a huge triangular bed of pansies) and here 
come Shama Gebauer (in a red plaid lumber- 
jack shirt) and Kristy Crandell (her T-shirt 
announces "The only thing alive about me is 
my imagination") fresh from generics class 
and on their way to band.

... In March 

Burks (burdened down with a huge blue 
leather bag with lots of straps), were in 
much of a hurry to get anywhere. And 
here's Lee Elliott, nephew of my optome- 
trist, wailing for his girlfriend (good luck) 
and "three musketeers" James Appel , Bren- 
den Roddy and Ryan Bergstrom (all wear- 
ing some shadeofblue sweaters, as I recall) 
rushing to world civilization class. And 
what's this? Krisi Clark striding purpose- 
fully all in cherry-red with little fruits and 
vegetables crocheted to her sweater — big 
plans and problems to solve inside that 
pretty head of hers. 

From this vantage point one can see the 
buses and vans which brought all those mu- 
sical academy students to the Southern 
Union Music Festival this week — a sure 
sign of spring. And add to that — the for- 
sythias, Bradford pears, and Japanese cherry 
trees all blooming furiously. And, even 
though the campus clock is stopped again, 
the fountains are gurgling and robins, wrens 
and warblers are everywhere. This is a 
fantastic day all Up and Down the Stairs.

"That is our biggest reward," 
1 Chen said. Sayles said he espe- 
cially enjoys performing fornon- 
SDA audiences, such as a secular 
college or in the mall. "Then we 
have the chance to get reactions 
from people who haven't been fed 
ihis stuff all their lives, and some 
really seem to like it." 

"Performing isn't the most 
important part. The impact is not 
mi the stage, but by the examples 
of our daily lives. Wetrytoreach

traveling, I like to look for kids 
who are alone and make a point of 
talking to them. The drama is 
great but it's dead if you can't get 
out there and talk to people." 
Denton echoed that opinion. 

"How we are off stage largely 
affects what we say on stage. The 
lives we live either build upor tear 
down what we perform," she said. 
The group members are tight- 
knit. "We all have different per- 
sonalities, but we're a group, and 
it's powerful and wonderful to 
belong," Durrette said. Sayles

Education Seniors Pass 
National Teachers Exam 

By James Pit ies 

In results announced March 3, Southern 
education students scored a 1 00 percent pass- 
ing rate on the 1 99 1 National Teachers Exam 

All elementary and secondary education 
students must take the NTE during theirsenior 
year. A passing score on the NTE is necessary 
for the teacher certification. 

"The fact is, Southern College has consis- 
tently been able to rum out qualified teach- 
ers," said George Babcock, chairman of the 
education department. 

Students had a perfect completion in all of 
the areas of testing: general knowledge, lan- 
guage and fine arts, math, science and social 
studies, as well as professional knowledge. 

Their combined raw scores placed South- 
em at the 79th percentile — high above the 
national average of 50 and in the top fifth of all 
colleges and universities taking the exam. 

"NTE is one of the measuring rods which 
measures how well we are doing," said 
Babcock. "If 1 00 percent of our students are 
passing, then we're obviously doing a good 

Southern education students' passing rates 
have traditionally been high. Within the last 
10 years, the lowest passing rate was a 92

Adventist View Coming Soon 

The premier issue of Adventist 
View , a publication for young 
adults in their 20s, will be intro- 
duced April I, 1992. The paper, 
coming this spring in three test 
issues, is intended as a voice of 
Adventist young adults today. 

What is Adventist View ? 

"It's our unique look at life, 
God, marriage, sex, music, sports, 
culture, our environment, etc.," 
said Editor Celeste Ryan, a 21- 
year old senior at Columbia Union 
College. "The paper will cover 
other issues that concern Adven- 
tist young adults in the form of 
news, features, ' 

endar of information and a classi- 
fied advertisement section for 
employment opportunities, etc." 

Why is Adventist View needed? 

"Many young feel neglected. 
This tabloid is needed to aid com- 
munication between the church 
and its young adult population," 
said Ryan. "It gives us a voice, a 
place to express our interests and 
concerns, and to engage in stimu- 
lating discussions about our lives." 

Whopraduces Adventist View ?' 

Adventist View was put together 
by the Church Ministries Depart- 
ment of the North American Divi- 
sion and the Adventist Review.

Southern Scholars To Present Research Projects 

By Jennift 
Southern Scholars seniors will 
present their research projects at a 
luncheon April 16. These 10- 
minute abstracts will show the 
results of their research which is 
required of students enrolled in 
the Honors Program. 

To become a Southern Scholar, 
students who have a cumulative 
GPA of 3.50 or higher are invited 
by the Honors Committee to join. 
This GPA must be maintained 
throughout the time they stay in 
the program. 

r Witley 

To maintain membership, a 
Southern Scholar must take at least 
12credithourseachsemester. The 
student has to take certain honors 
sequence courses and keep at least 
a B average in them, as well as 
keep the regular GPA at 3.50 or 
above. Also, whatever degree the 
student has chosen should be com- 
pleted in four years. 

Being in the program gives stu- 
dents some unique opportunities.

When the warm wind of sum- 
■ nier first brushes the faces of col- 
I leao students, most thoughts turn 
I from school and studies to the 
I beach, sun, and good times. How- 
lever, last May, 14 people from 
I Southern experienced the link that 
I joins these aspects oi'lile together. 
I The link is called marine biol- 
I ogy class, and it happens during 
| the first summer session of every 

The class is broken 
I parts, actually two l< 

ling about organisms in a 
classroom at Southern, and then 
1 playing with and studying those 
lismsat the reel's of San Sal- 
vador, an island in the Bahamas. 
During the first two weeks of 
le session, the students gather 
I for three hours daily in a class- 
i in Hackman Hall. The two 
ssorsof the class. Dr. Stephen 
I Nyirady and his wife Laura, have

ron the organisms which are 
I found on beaches, among reefs, 
f and in oceans of the tropical wa- 
rs of the world. Within the first 
to weeks, about 300 names of 
■ganisms are memorized. 
The second part of the class 
icludes spending a week at San 
[ Salvador. Southern was one of 
about 100 schools occupying the 
island that third week of May. A 
small field station composed of a 
cafeteria, dorms, a lab building, 
and a volley ball court is where 
the researchers resided. 

Instead of staying in the dormi- 
tories with the other colleges. 
Southern students were allowed 
to bunk up in old barracks, which 
were used by soldiers when the 
island was a military base years 
ago. Dr. Nyirady said that the 
people in charge of the field sta- 
tion gave him these buildings to 
stay in because they were im- 
pressed with Southern's students 
and knew the buildings would be

During the seven days South- 
em was there, the agenda was 
basically the sameevery day: wake 
up early, go snorkeling for about 
two hours, eat lunch, go to a new 
sight and snorkel for two more 
hours, walk the beaches, study the 
organisms and the habitats, and 
get a tan. 

After a day of snorkeling or 
diving, the evening was spent in 
the lab at the field station. Books 
were piled on the tables and the 
organisms which were collected 
during the day were put in con- 
tainers so the students could iden- 
tify them. Lab work can be tough, 
but Krista Olson said, "Going to 
lab was super fun. I wish I could

Sophomore Kellie Olson said, 
"I really enjoyed every aspect of it 
[the class], and 1 know 1 couldn't 
have gone with a nicer bunch of

What does Easter 
meantoyou? Certainly, 
many aspects of it don't 
make sense. And for 
some people, Easter can 
be a hare-raising holi- 

First of all, why do we 
have an Easter Bunny? 
Rabbits don't lay eggs. 
Why not an Easter platy- 
pus? That makes more 
sense to me. Aplatypus' 
doesn't lay eggs either, 
but it does have a duck's 
bill. And by the way, 
why does the Cadbury 
Cream Egg Rabbit 

What about the egg 
hunt? Where's the sport 
in hunting down a small, 
inanimate dairy prod- 
uct? It just scrambles 
my brain. 

No. Ofcourseldon't 
hate Easter. I just had 
nothing else to say. 
Don't let Easter make 
you a basket case.

Fight Back At Security 

Since the subject of security 
bashing is popular I want to get a 
piece of the action and share my 
enlightening experience. 

It was a showdown of lights 
earlier this semester. My girl- 
friend and I were sitting in my car 
in the Wright Hall faculty parking 
lol (girls dorm side) on a Saturday 
nighl(beforecurfew). As we were 
talking, suddenly, there was light, 
intense light. The light was com- 
ing from the security car's spot- 
light and il shined on us for sev- 
eral minutes when I decided to 
fight back. Little did Barney-Fife 
know that I had a weapon equal to 
my task; my 3-D cell Mag-lite 
flashlight. I hoisted my flashlight 
up, turned it on, and focused the 

light beam on the security officer's 
face. The dual of lights lasted 
several minutes and I was the vic- 
tor! Security droveaway, whipped 
by my Mag. 

The point of this editorial is to 
show that innocent students can 
fight back against this irrational 
and unprovoked behavior appar- 
ently widely practiced by campus 
security. Yes, this action is irra- 
tional because the security person 
did not get out of the car and ask if 
everything was OK. Instead he 
spotlighted my girlfriend and I 
unti 1 1 had enough and fought back. 
I suggest a 3-D cell Mag-lite flash- 
hghl for anyone experiencing this 
same problem. It sure worked for

Cool the Pool, Balance the Chemicals, and Extend the Hours 

Dear Editor: 

On Sunday, the 29th of March, at 1 1 a.m.. 
Southern College held its annual swim meet to 
give aquatic athletes their shot at breaking a 
record or two. No records were broken. This 
is probably big news to most people who came 
to participate, either by cheering or swim- 
There were 10 swimmers who competed, 
at best. Another 15 to 20 people came by to 
support. I only saw two faculty members, one 
of whom was officiating the races. It is not my 
intent to criticize those who came, but only to 
thank them. I would especially like to thank 
Alyssa McCurdy and Elaine Sharpe for all the 
hard promotion work they did. 

The question that drives me to write this is: 
why are there only two males and eight fe- 
males who think they are capable of competi- 
tion out of roughly 1,500 Southemites? If 
your excuse is that you were not aware of the 
event then you must not have been to the pool 
in the last month, or ever wondered how those 
people that have their names on the wall got 
them there. (I didn't think blindness, illit- 
eracy, or dismemberment were prominent 
enough to mention.) 

The factors I believe that limit the number 
of active swimmers are the conditions of the 
pool; toohotand unbalanced chemicals. Also, 
inadequate pool hours. 

The temperature of a normal multi-purpose 
pool, used for lap swim, free swim, WSI class, 
lifeguarding class, water aerobics, etc., (Oh 

yeah, swim meets too) should be approxi- 
mately 78 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Ibase that 
on my experiences in numerous other pools 
that I have frequented. The average tempera- 
ture of Southern's pool is close to 85 degrees. 
This is similar to running in 95 degree heat 
with total humidity. This is important to 
(wishful) swimmers, who complain that they 
feel like their head is going to explode and 
they are going to throw-up whatever they have 
eaten in the last two days, when they swim 4 
laps. I can identify with them. 

Are we catering to the needs of a few 
elderly ladies who spend 30 minutes a week 
treading water and pay virtually nothing (wa- 
ter-aerobics)? Or to the needs of the students, 
who pay mega-bucks to attend school here 
and spend much more time swimming laps in 
the pool? ( I spend about five to six hours in 
the pool weekly). What about lifeguarding 
and WSI? If they would stop whining, and 
start swimming half the amount they should 
be they would be thankful to have the pool at 
an appropriate temperature. It is also very 
expensive and a big waste of energy to keep 
the pool at its current temperature, on an 
environmental side of things. 

Secondly, the laws of chemistry apply even 
in Collegedale, Tenn. Meaning that if these 
laws are followed, even we can have a chlo- 
rine-balanced, PH-adjusted, crystal clearpool. 
(Which has, at least in the two years I've been 
swimming in it, been a rare and exciting 

occasion). I am not a pool care expert, but I I 
have swam in enough different pools to know 
that Southern's pool is not a great example of 
pool care. The water often bums my eyes, 
grows little fuzzy things on my teeth (swim- 
mers know what I'm saying), and is so cloudy I 
its hard to follow the black tiles on the bottom. I 
All these chemical problems could be taken I 
care of with a good routine of testing and 1 
monitoring by someone qualified to do a good 
job. Hint: Let's see a Red Cross or YMCA 
qualified pool keeper certificate posted. We 
could pay for it with the money saved from a 
cooler temperature. 

Lastly, are the restricted times that the pool I 
is available for laps. In the morning the pool 
isopenfrom5:45to7a.m. There are a faithful | 
few who visit the pool in the morning to 
the day. But how many more would cor 
it were open for only another hour? In the : 
evening we can swim laps from 6:30 to 8 a.m. 
This year opening changed from 6 p.m. to 
6:30. So, unless you are a time wizard, it is 
impossible to get in agood workout and attend I 
7 p.m. worship in the dorms. 

In short, our pool is a great resource, that oi 
the morning of the swim meet was empty, a 
hot 84 degrees, and almost as clear as the 
goldfish pond. This may also help explain 
why no records were broken. I would like to 
see more swimmers in the pool and enjoying 
it. And this is possible if these few changes are 

-Shawn Servoss 

Go To Bed! 

Dear Editor: 

I noticed in the March calendar picture the 
historic headline: "All Night Lights Come to 
SMC Dorms." Truly it was a great step 
forward for those who used electric clocks and 
blankets. We could never muster the votes to 
return to the "dark ages" even if the electrical 
systems could be refitted. Yet, I wonder if we 
haven't lost something valuable in the 
progress? Back in those days, the library 
(Darnell's Hall) was the principle study area 
in the evening with the approaching dark -line 
of 10:15 p.m. Students planned to have all 
their studying done by the time lights went out 
and most slept from then until the 5:30 a.m. 
return of power. (Yes, the VM did sell batter- 
ies.) Our health message used to include 
"regular hours for rest." I am concerned that 
Southern has all night softball and events 
scheduled to run from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. I'm 
not against fun and recreation but can't we 
select more regular hours? I am disturbed 
when students start their assignments at 1 a.m. 
or find they can't sleep or study because their 
roommate is goofing around till 3 a.m. Re- 
turning to the good old days is not an option 
but perhaps we could observe the spirit of the 
law and voluntarily practice courtesy and 
health. Who knows, people might even attend 
8 o'clock classes.

Chevrolets are often said to be 
American classics, when an Ameri- 
can thinks of the early twentieth 
century, many things come to his 
or her mind. The memories prob- 
ably include such things as the 
Great Depression, the World Wars, 
and the swinging twenties and thir- 
ties. Yet it's hard not to think of 
Babe Ruth, the infamous "Black 
Sox", or the all-powerful New York 
Yankees all within the same train 
of thought. Fans have cheered, 
been on edge, and even cried over 
baseball. For example, when Lou 
Gherig announced at Yankee Sta- 
dium that he was retiring from base- 
ball because of a rare nerve disor- 
der, a wave of grief swept the na- 

Baseball is obviously not every 
persons favorite sport. But it can't 
be disputed as far as having a lot of 
great moments. I will vehemently 
swear that I'm not a Braves fan ( a 
Yankee fan to set the record 
straight), however, I couldn't help 
but find myself cheering for them 
occasionally. That is until I came 
back to my senses! Base ball is a 
game where anyone can be top dog 
by the end of the season and for 
that reason I'm one enthused fan 
who is grateful for the return of the

What Does Easter Mean To the World? 

Colored eggs, Easier baskets, bunnies, white 
lilies: all are symbols that stand for Easter the 
same way angels and reindeer stand forChrist- 
mas. An assortment of Easter paraphernalia 
line store windows, churches, and advertise- 
ments weeks before Easter day. However, all 
these symbols that are familiar to us may have 
some unfamiliar meanings. What is Easter 
and what does it mean? The story is not one 
simple tale that can be traced back to a line or 
generation. Moreover, it is a conglomerate of 
tradition, custom, and adaptation into the 
Christian church and our lives. Some symbols 
go back hundreds or thousands of years, some 
belong to Christianity, some do not. Easter is 
best understood as a merge that occurred be- 
tween God's people and the one's they were 
called out from. Their old ways were carried 
over into their new beliefs, resulting in the 
many different versions of Easter and its sym- 
bols. All agree, however, that the Easter 
celebration points to the death and resurrec- 
tion of Jesus. 

By Angie Coffey 

Sunday and Holy Week originated. Many 
churches hold sunrise services as a traditional 
celebration. The early Christians, accustomed 
to the worship of Gods, thought of Jesus as 
their sun. Each evening the sun died and then 
rose to life again at dawn, thus sunrise became 
a religious symbol of the resurrection. 

The name Easter itself has been traced to 
the sun. Some historians claim it was from the 
Norsemen's word Eastar, or Ostar, which 
meant "season of the growing sun and season 
of new birth." An English histrian tells of a 
goddess of dawn and springtime called Eostre 
who was worshipped by the Anglo-Saxons. 
There are many opinions but all agree the 
name refers to the East and the rising sun. 

The Easter egg represents the miracle of 
new life. The ancient Egyptians, Persians, 
and Hindus believed the world was hatched 
from an enormous egg. "Half of the egg 
turned to gold, becoming the sky, and half to 
silver, forming the earth." From the book 
"Lilies, Rabbits and Painted Eggs by Edna 
Barth, mountains, clouds, and the ocean came 
from the inside layers of the egg while the 
contents became the sun. In England and 
France, the eggs of snakes were worshipped 
by ancient Druids, who were sorcerers, priests 
and magicians. The eggs stood for life and the 
druid circle was symbolic of eternal life which 
never ended. No one is sure how the Easter 
egg grew out of these traditions, but it came to 
symbolize life and new beginnings. 

While the egg may have many meanings, 
the games that have come about over the years 
are mainly for fun. For example, the bishop of 
Chester Cathedral in England would call a 
recess and play toss with hard-boiled eggs 
when the Easter services became too long. 

Indian tribes in Central America also cel- 
ebrated Easter, which gave us the Easterbunny. 
After they became largely Christian, they car- 
ried over their ancestor's Easter traditions. 
They built Easter arches covered with flowers 

It is a "movable feast" which means that 
while it always comes in Spring, the day it is 
held depends on the sun and the moon. Twice 
each year the sun is in direct line with the 
equator. At this time, the day and night hours 
are exactly the same. This is called the equi- 
nox. Easter thus falls on the first Sunday that 
follows the full moon on or after the spring 
equinox. The earliest day for Easter is March 
20 and the latest is April 25. This year Easter 
is April 19. 

The season brings about a flourish of reli- 
gious activities in many Christian churches. 
The book of Exodus tells the story of the angel 
of God that "passed over" the homes of the 
Hebrews. In every Egyptian home the angel 
destroyed the Firstborn. This was an institu- 
tion that was to be celebrated for years to 
come. This is how the celebration of Palm 

and then decorated with small animals of the 
field, such as squirrels, raccoons and rabbits. 
The hare or rabbit is a symbol of new life; this 
combined with the painted eggs he brings, 
adds prosperity to the villages and towns. 

The Easter lily is a symbol of the resurrec- 
tion. The bulb stands for the tomb of Jesus, 
and the blossom for His life after death. The 
flower we call the Easter lily is not a spring 
flower or American flower. The flower grow- 
ers in the states have learned to make it bloom 
in time and it has become the nation's special 
Easterplant. Before Christian times, touching 
a leafy green plant brought good health and 
luck. As these people joined the Christian 
religion they brought their ideas and customs. 
"Because the church's Easter festival came in 
the spring, too, they began to think of them as 
Easter customs. In time it was forgotten that 
they had ever been anything else." (Barth) 

Each nation and country has its own stories 
and versions, yet they never venture far from 
the same symbolism. To most, Easter is a time 
to rejoice and celebrate life and resurrection. 
We as Christians should be aware of the ori- 
gins of Easter. While some may see Easter as 
aharmless celebration of life after the deathof 
winter, others warn against practicing cus- 
toms installed by ungodly people. God calls 
us to be a "peculiar people unto himself, above 
all nations that are upon the earth. 
Deuteronomy 14:2. Therefore, each indi- 
vidual must decide how they chose to cel- 
ebrate this holiday instated by God. "And ye 
shall observe this thing for an ordinance to 
thee and to thy sons forever. It is the sacrifice 
of the Lord's passover, who passed over the 
houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when 
He smote the Egyptians, and delivered our 
houses. And the people bowed their heads ana 
worshipped." Exodus 12: 24,27. 

Who Is Jan Haluska? 

Jan Haluska sits at his desk in 
his office. There's nothing flashy 
about the room or about him. His 
hair, neatly combed, caps a 
smooth, serious face. His clothes 
are neat and simple: pressed trou- 
sers; a calm, yellowish tie; and a 
white shirt with a collar so crisp 
one can picture him at the clean- 
ers ordering, "Extra starch, 
please." There's nothing here to 
hint of anything out of the ordi- 

Unlike most teachers, there's 
no name plate on his desk. There 
is a vase containing a single, red 
rose and a desk calendar, still set 
on yesterday's date. A hanging 
plant dangles in front of a small 

Haluska was preparing to speak 
for the April 2assembly, but when 
asked for some information, he 
crinkled his brow and gave a blank 
look. Hedidn'thaveatitleforhis 
talk yet, he said; he didn't even 
have a topic. He had ideas, but. . 
"I've been known to change my 
s before I get up to 


Then how about some bio- 
graphical material? 

Haluska thinks for a while, eye- 
brows furrowed. "I went to mili- 
tary school," he begins, "from 
grammar school to high school." 
(Maybe the explanation for his 
upright posture?) "And I went to 
college and flunked out twice." 

His years following college 
were colorful — full of different 
places, different people: three 
years stationed in Germany while 
in the army; extensive traveling; 
sales work in San Francisco, his 
home town; and running a jazz 
band . . . Smiling faintly, he nods. 
"It was a dissolute life." 

"My parents were Christian 
Scientists," he says. Haluska re- 
lates that he was heavily involved 
in the religion before and during 

the army, though he lost his at- 
tachment to it after leaving the 

"I hit rock bottom around 1 968, 
1969." He removes his glasses 
and rubs his eyes, not as someone 
tired but as someone remember- 
ing. "Then I started to pray." 

Though not an Adventist, he 
went to Pacific Union College and 
obtained a degree in aviation. He 
was converted and baptized the 
same year he graduated. It's a bit 
puzzling at how an aviation major 
ended up in the English Depart- 
ment at Southern. "I went to 
Andrews and got my MA in En- 
glish," he says. Then he taught at 
Georgia/Cumberland Academy, 
and finally came here in 1981. 

Behind Haluska on the shelf is 
a cameo, a cameo of his wife and 
children. "I met my wife at 
Andrews. At GCA, we had our 
two sons," he says. "And we still 
have the same two sons."

man,asalesman,amusician. Some 
would say that was quite a full

department and surveyed psychol- 
ogy and sociology classes. 

Willians put religiousness into 
two categories — intrinsic and ex- 
trinsic. Intrinsic persons are in- 
volved in religion because they 
love God and He is their friend; 
they have inner reasons for their 
religion. Extrinsic persons are 
involved in religion for parents, 
social status or friends; they have 
outside reasons for their religion. 

The students' depression and 
anxiety traits were then tested. 
Williams will compare the results 
to see which group has a tendency 
to have more depression and anxi- 
ety problems. He will also look at 
gender across all scales. 

Williams is working on his 
masters in clinical psychology. 

He said he has not found any stud- 
ies exactly like this. "One of the 
problemsof this study at Southern 
is that I found very few extrinsic 
students. It's OK though because 
this is the first study of this subject 
on Adventists/' 

It will be two and ahalf months 
before the results will be known, 
but Williams gave his hypothesis. 
"My hypothesis is thai the results 
will show the intrinsic having less 
depression andless anxiety." Does 
the reason for religiousness have 
an effect on mental health? There 
is a good possibility that it does 
and Williams says "Thank you"

SMC Welcomes 
450 Seniors 

Reprinted from the Southern Accent, April 18. 1966 

Southern Missionary 
College is host for three 
days to approximately 
450 high school and acad- 
emy seniors who began 
arriving on campus this 
weekend and throughout 
the afternoon for SMC's 
annual College Days. 

The academy students 
were escorted along a 
two-mile parade route by 
decorated and sign- 
draped cars sponsored by 
SMC's professional and 
extra-curricular activity 

Sunday afternoon was 
divided between "Art in 
the Round" in which stu- 
dents exhibited paintings 
and other works of arts at 
the Mall of the College 
Plaza, and the new P.E. 
center and recreation ac- 
tivities on the recreation

Highlight of the Mon- 
day morning chapel, at 
which SMC's administra- 
tors previewed the college 
student's life, was the pre- 
sentation of $ 1 00 scholar- 
ship awards to selected se- 
niors by the college and 
local SDAconferences. A 
campus tour, intended to 
acquaint each student with 
college buildings and in- 
dustries, followed the 
chapel exercise. 

Monday afternoon was 
given to "acquaintance" 
meetings and interviews 
between the seniors and 
die instructors in the field 
of their proposed major 
interest. Further recre- 
ational activities were 
added to the afternoon's

Commencement weekend begins Friday 
evening. May 1, with consecration. The se- 
niors will march down in their caps and gowns 
to start the program. Physics Department 
Chairman Ray Hefferlin will present the 
evening message, and senior class pastor Troy 
Fitzgerald will give a response. 

On Saturday. Dr. Gordon Beitz will speak 
for baccalaureatee. Also, the nurse's pinning 
will be that evening. 

The speaker for the centennial commence- 
ment will be Charles Fleming, a longtime 
supporter and faculty member of Southern 
College. "Do You Know Him?" is the title of 
his talk. According to Fleming, "The essence 
of commencement is its brevity." He first 
joined the faculty in 1941 andretumedin 1946 
as business manager. He retired in 1975. 
Fleming Plaza is named after him. 

One third of the class will graduate with 
high honors, and seven Southern Scholars are 
graduating. Fifty students will graduate with 
Cum Laude status, 24 with Magna Cum Laude 
status and 12 with Summa Cum Laude status. 
Ninety-five students of the entire graduating 
class are nursing majors, who will graduate 
with AS or BS degrees. 

Nursing instructor Laura Nyirady will speak 
at the nurses' pinning Saturday evening. The 
pinning will be very memorable and personal 
for the graduating nurses because they will be 
allowed to pick the person they want to pin 
them. The chosen person must be a graduate 
nurse. After the pinning process, the new 
nurses will give flowers to their parents. 

Fleming Plaza To Get Face Lift 

By Lois Tibbeis 

Fleming Plaza is getting an extensive face 
lift. Dale Bidwell, senior vice president for 
finance, said the building was built over 20 
years ago and it is time to "bring Fleming 
Plaza into the '90s." 

Plans have been drawn to enlarge and 
change the parking area, add handicap acces- 
sibility and modernize the plaza in general, 
said Bidwell. He said the goal is to increase

Southern Singers to Give Home Concert 

The South 
present their final home 
of the school year on Friday, April 
24, 8 p.m.. in the Church. 

The program will include such 
pieces as "The Last Words of 
David" by Randall Thompson, 
"Father in Heaven" by G.F. 
Handel, "A Proverb of Solomon" 
by Ralph Hunter, "Amazing 
Grace" from Virginia Harmony, 
and "Seven-fold Amen" by Peter 
Lutkin. The concert will feature 
Kathy Stewart, soprano; David 
Kim, baritone; Shari Wolcott, 

soprano; Rebecca Holtry, 
tralto; Sheldon Jefferson, t> 
Bob Dickinson, bass; and The 
Ladies of Southern Singers. 

Under the direction of Dr. 
MarvinRobertson, Southern Sing- 
ers in an ensemble of 40 singers 
noted for its performance of sa- 
credmusic. Frequently they com- 
bine with brass instruments or 
orchestra in the performance of 
major choral works. Southern 
Singers perform throughout the 
Southeast and have toured the 
former Soviet Union. 

Southern's Trailer Park 
Will Likely Be Phased Out 

If all goes smoothly the faculty 
and married student trailer park 
will be phased out within the next 
six months. 

Plans are being made to build 
up to three new apartment build- 
ings across from the church on 
College Drive. The apartments 
will include one-, two- and three- 
bedroom units with parking be- 
hind the buildings, said Dale 
Bidwell, senior vice president for 
Finance. The buildings will be 
similar to the Virginia apartments 
on the corner of Oak Drive and 
Momingside Drive. 

The change in housing loca- 
tion came as a result of the high 
cost to update sewer lines in the 
trailer park. Because updating of 
utilities would cost an estimated 
$500,000, the college decided to 
build new housing instead, 
Bidwell said. 

Currently there are college and 
privately-owned trailers, with stu- 
dents, employees and retired em- 
ployees residing in the park. 
Bidwell said the earliest comple- 
tion date will be six months, but it 
may take a year or longer to com- 
plete the housing project.

The annual student art show is 
on display in the Southern Art 
Gallery in Brock Hall 216. The 
show features a mixed media pre- 
sentation of student art and will 
run until the end of April. 

"The art show is a good idea," 
said sophomore John Burkes. "It 
gives students a chance to show 
their work." The art show fea- 
tures charcoal and pen drawings, 
as well as oil paintings. The 
show's contributors are students 
enrolled in painting and drawing 

classes. "The art show helps

Don Sahly, behavioral science professor Terrie 
Ruff, and Doug Martin, associate director of 
recruitment. Parts of the video were shot at 
registration and the Gilligan's Island Party, 
and it ended on a live note with Doc and Marty 
entering the gym during Strawberry Festival. 

"I thought the whole thing was very cre- 
ative," said Junior Jeanne Kim. "The 'Back to 
the Future' video was pretty funny." 

Junior Sherrie Piatt was the director of 
photography of this year's Festival, and has 
been elected as producer for next year.. Junior 
Andy McConnell was technical director, and 
also involved were Senior Kristy Crandall, 
Sophomore Travis Stirewalt, and about eight 
photographers. Doug Walter, general man- 
ager of WSMC, was the sponsor. 

"I'm glad it's over, but I'm looking for- 
ward to next year," Piatt said. "We will have 
a great SA who will support the Festival." 

During the year the staff often worked late 
nights, and near the end, pulled many all- 
nighters. A week before the show, the staff 
had to change computer systems due to a lack 
of memory. In the last few days, a glitch in the 
new system caused the computer to erase 
itself. "We had to re-do it, and the computer 
company thinks that the fact that no one has 
produced a show this size on the software is 
the reason we had a few technical difficulties 
during the show," Magursky said. 

"But the responses I've heard have been 
very positive. If they enjoyed it, it was good, 
because that's the purpose," sad Schneider. 
Magursky said, "It's amazing things worked 
out as well as they did. Miracles happened 
several times." 

At the end of the Festival, students and 
faculty were treated to ice cream and straw- 
berries, then the 1992 yearbooks, edited by 
Amy Beckworth, were distributed. flffi

Hall of Horrors Funds 
Grundset Lecture Series 

Bylois Tibbets 

"Hackman Hall of Horrors" last October 
made it possible for the E.O. Grundset Lecture 
Series to be born this semester. 

The Tri-Beta Biology Club used the horror 
hall proceeds to fund the series, which the club 
arranges each semester. 

This semester six lectures were organized, 
ranging in topics from medicinal herbs to bats! 
"The research ones are technical — more for 
biology students," said Senior Jim Smith. 
"But the natural history ones are more for a 
general audience." 

Tri-Beta Club sponsor Dr. Bill Hayes 
agrees. He said the series are advertised in the 
community, and the general audience lectures 
will help expose people to nature and raise 
their level of environmental awareness. 

The technical lectures will expose students 
to different research approaches. Research is 
a natural next step for many biology students, 
said Hayes. It makes learning about different 
approaches important. Also, ahalf-hour credit 
may be possible beginning next fall. 

Attendance at the lectures this semester 
varied from 20 to over 140. 

Tri-Beta named the series after E.O. 
Grundset, associate professor of biology, be- 
cause he is such a "natural history enthusiast," 
said Hayes. The club wants others to become 
enthused as well.

This issue basically ends

hasn't been a field full of cows

have given me a lot of stress. 

Why did I write all this?

Watch In Peace! 

' i.-im t/>,";: 

Have you ever been looking forward to 
watching a game on TV, only to find out that 
your only option for viewing, is watching 
along with the top sports analysts in the 
world? Well, one doesn't have to be among 
the ABC Wide World of Sports crew to 
know what I'm talking about. Actually you 
only have to go as far as the Talge Hall 

Just last week, I was all hyped about a big 
game on TV. So after gathering my Ramen 
Noodles and my Mountain Dew I hurriedly 
made my way to the dungeon. I mean rec. 
room. At first things were nice and peaceful 
and the game was starling without a hitch. 
However, as soon as the first foul was called 
a blood curdling scream was let out by the 
fellow next to me. When turning to admin- 
ister CPR I realized he was only emotion- 
ally hurt, so I returned to eating my noodles 
and watching the game. Not one minute 
later, twodifferentguys.fromopposite sides 
of the room, began yelling foul statistics at 
one another, each trying to prove that his 
team was being discriminated against. On 
the screen it read that both teams had the 
same amount of fouls, but who does the 
NBA official stats keeper think he is any- 
way, only those two guys in the rec. room 
know the real story. After asking them both 
politely to shut up, my attention was turned 
back to the first guy. After four or five 
plays, he was about to go into shock! Poor 
guy, I guess that's why he watches instead 
of plays. 

My point is, just watch and enjoy the 
game. Nothing that's said in front of the TV 
is going to change things, except your anxi- 
ety levels. Oh yeah, if one has nothing 
better to do than argue stats with a televi- 
sion, than 1 highly suggest that you pick up 
something to improve your social life, like 
maybe a knitting club!

The Final Exam 

Once again the critical part of the semester 
is upon us — the final two weeks. During this 
time all class projects and term papers are due, 
all back homework has to be done and final 
exams must be taken. It is also at this time that 
procrastinators can be spotted in any crowd 
for they're the ones wearing wrinkled clothes 
and walking around with huge bags under 
their eyes. All night cram sessions and one- 
day term papers lead to stress, pressure and 
worry. Everyone's focus is on making the 
grade. By now we know what our teachers are 
like and what we must do if we are to attain the 
grade we desire. The whole semester comes 
down to this: the final stretch, the final endur- 
ance test, the final exam. 

I would like to draw your attention to a 
much more important test that is on our sched- 
ule. A final that is different from any final that 
we are preparing for right now. This is an 
exam that is inevitable, unavoidable and well- 
announced. Everyone must take it. In this test 
there is no letter or percentage grade; it is a 
pass/fail exam. There are no bell curves, no 
questions thrown out, no students exempt 
from taking the test, and no surprise or trick 

What is expected of us has been delineated 
very clearly. There is no confusion as to what 
will be on the exam. We have been told what 
to study and know for the test. Everything has 
been so careful ly laid out in class, the text, and 
the syllabus that not only do we know what to 
study, but we know exactly what comprises 
the test. There is absolutely no reason to fail. 

We know what to expect because the re- 
view sheet was given to us long ago. The 
textbook is comprehensive, clear, and full of 
illustrations, and we as students have had 
ample time to read and understand the con- 
cepts and views that are found in it. If we read 
the text and come to class we will clearly 
understand the teacher's thoughts and ideas. 

Our teacher is very learned and just, and he 
treats his students fairly. He is very helpful 
and has even given us special, unique aid. If at 
any time, day or night, we don't understand 
something clearly or have a question of any 
kind we may call a personal assistance hotline 

By B J. Boles 
for help. In fact, our teacher is so concerned 

about our passing the e 
nated a special tutor tc 
needed. Should we wai 
/ill co 

that he has desig- 
available for us if 
to us wherever we 
hotline and the 

:, the * 
areandhelpus. The 
tutor are available 24 hours a day, seven days 

We as students know for certain that this 
test is coming but we do not know when. We 
know, however, it will be soon, for we are in 
the final weeks of the semester. Although this 
will be a "surprise" exam, it need not catch us 
off guard, for our teacher has gone out of his 
way to prepare us. There need not be worry or 
stress for this final exam like there is for our 
current finals. The only ones that need worry 
are, as always, those that have put off prepar- 
ing for it, and are caught off guard by the test. 
He wants all of us to understand the material 
and pass the class. 

The consequences for failing this test are 
devastating. If we fail, we flunk the course 
and we cannot retake it. The result is perma- 
nent, and the mark of "F" will be on our record 
forever. Our failure could not be blamed on 
our teacher, however, for he has done every- 
thing he could possibly do for us. No, our 
failure would be our own fault, and we would 
have to pay the grave and disastrous cost for 
our procrastination. 

On the other hand, the rewards for passing 
the test are tremendous and wonderful. The 
award for passing the exam, like that for 
failing, is everlasting and our record will for- 
ever show a mark of passing! 

I hope that during these last few weeks we 
keep things in perspective and remember the 
larger much more important exam that we all 
must take. Then on that final day when Christ, 
our Teacher, asks, "Do I know you," we'll say 
with honest assurance, "Yes, my Lord." Then 
the Lord will say, "Well done, good and faith- 
ful serv ant. ..enterinto the joy of your Master" 
(Matt. 25:21). But to those who do not know 
Him, He will say, "...I do not know where you 
are from, depart from me" (Luke 13:27). 

There will only be two groups, those who 
pass and those who fail. To the students who 

are triumphant through Christ, He exclaims, 
"Come you who are blessed of my Father, 
inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the 
foundation of the world" (Matt. 25:34). "My 
sheep (students) hear my voice, and I know 
them, and they follow me; and I give eternal 
life to them, and they shall never perish; and 
no one shall snatch them out of my hand" 
(John 10:27-28). To those who fail He com- 
mands, "Depart from me accursed ones, into 
the eternal fire which has been prepared for 
the devil and his angels" (Matt. 25: 41). 

His advice to us is that of any good teacher: 
don't worry, be prepared, and don't wait until 
the night before to study. Acing this final test 
is as easy as accepting the free gift of salvation 
that Christ offers us and beginning a friend- 
ship withHim. It's that simple! Although the 
stakes are high, the odds of passing are 100 
percent if we'll only submit ourselves to Him.

Suzy Smith Isn't Just Kidding Around 

Children are our future. They should lead 
happy, carefree lives, but this often isn't the 
case. Bui there are people who try to make life 
better for kids. Suzy Smith is one of those 

She is an education major who volunteers 
Sundays at the SDA Community Services 
Center in Collegedale. "I've always wanted 
to do some kind of work with children," she 
says. So at the beginning of the school year 
Suzy called Gail Williams, director of Com- 
munity Services, to find out what she could do 
to help. Mrs. Williams needed someone to do 
things with the children so they wouldn't just 
run wildly about the thrift store while their 
parents shopped. 

Together they have made S undays at Com- 
munity Services "Child Care Outreach Day." 
A room is set up with toys, crafts, drawing 
materials, and music. While the adults shop, 
kids can come in the room and do some 
activities. The volunteers give them one-on- 
one attention which most of the kids desper- 
ately need. Some kids stay for 20 minutes, 
some stay as long as a couple of hours. Some 
of the kids are as young as a few months while 
some are as old as 14. 

This program began in October and Suzy 
has been there every Sunday except over 

What's It Like 

Being A Student 


Christmas and New Year's. "It's been won- 
derful, "shesays. "Ihaven'tregrettedaminute 
of it." She also arranged with teachers to let 
students earn extra credit for volunteering. 
She says that students who go there just for 
credit end up coming back because they like it. 

Why has she kept coming back and help- 
ing?^ "What kept me were the looks on the 
kids' faces," she explained. Her goal is to get 
the program running smoothly so that she can 
turn it over to the Student Education Associa- 
tion on campus when she graduates next year. 
She hopes that by doing this it will be some- 
thing that continues. 

"People don't understand what we do. 
We're not babysitting over there. We are 
interacting with the children," she says. "We 
are touching the lives of kids that do not have 
too many positives in their lives." 

This program is also a way of letting kids 
know about God. "We are touching lives that 
don't know what an Adventist is. They don't 
know who God is," says Suzy. "They don't 
know what positive love is." 

Suzy says that help is also needed when it 
comes to other things like keeping the Center 
looking nice. If students would come and 
volunteer to do whatever is needed, that would 
be a great help, she says. 

After Sunday is over Suzy says she's tired 
but, "You feel warm inside. You've done 
something that's positive and not just to make 
yourself feel good. You've really affected a 
life and that's a feeling that I wouldn't trade 
for a million dollars." 

If you would like to volunteer this summer 
or next school year, call Gail Williams at 
Community Services. Take the opportunity to 
give children a better future.

Everyday Life... 

Senior Crystal Zill and Junior Bruce Austin socialize t 
bench near Thatcher. 

Who Is Gary Collins? 

Gary Collins shrugs his shoul- 
ders. His gaze is direct. His 
smile, almost teasing. "I thought 
ministers were lazy people who 
sat around in their offices and got 
up late in the morning," he says 

He didn't know what major he 
would claim when he enrolled at 
Southern in 1989. Theology 
wasn't in his plans. But it was in 
God's. "He let me know in my 
heart that that's what I wanted to 

Now a junior theology student, 
Collins will replace Troy 
Fitzgerald as the directorof CARE 
Ministries for 1992-93. He will 
also serve as a member of the 
General Conference Executive 
Committee, a first for a young, 
college-age person. 

Despite the unflinching brown 
eyes and formal face, one cannot 
help noticing his youth. He wears 
a cool purple T-shirt and grey 
jeans. "They're brown," he says. 
His wide grin shatters his serious- 
ness- "Anyone who says other- 
wise is color-blind." 

Brown, then. 

Collins is no stranger to re- 
sponsibilities. Last year, he was 
Beta Kappa Tau's AYS leader. 
Presently, he is one of the Steps to 
Christ (STC) ministry coordina- 
tors. STC was in its infancy dur- 
ing the latter part of 1991. As a 
result of fervent prayers, the min- 
istry is thriving and its theme is 
the need for the Holy Spirit. 

Collins excitedly mentions an STC 
newsletter in the works called 
"Matrix" which he hopes will be- 
come intercollegiate. "I think the 
Lord has a tremendous mission 
for Southern next year," he says. 
"The foundation has been set un- 
der Troy, Jeff (Gang) and the oth- 
ers. It's time to build on that 

When Collins is told that he is 
among those at the forefront of 
God's work at Southern, his gaze 
falters for the first time. He shyly 
buries his cheek in the palm of his 
hand. "God is the leader," he says 
slowly. He recalls the question- 
ing he was subjected to when he 
went to Canadaearlier this semes- 
ter as one of the delegates to be 
chosen as a representative at the 
General Conference. HesaysGod 
inspired his last answer. Libby 
Riano had asked the candidates 
how they would share the gospel 
with young people. With a conta- 
gious enthusiasm, Collins said, "1 
told them that God does not ac- 
cept us for who we are: He hates 
sin. When we accept Jesus as our 
Saviour, we are at that moment in 
Christ so that God looks at us and 
sees the Son. . ." 

Collins hopes to be a voice for 
Adventist youth and raise the im- 
portant issues they face today. He 
clasps hishands togetherand leans 
his chin on them. "I just want God 
to work," he says. "Let Him use 
me as His vessel." 

Breakfast, Lunch, and sometimes Supper 



Garren Wins 'Good Husband' Contest 

Reprinted from the 

•, April 27, 1989 

of us as chairman of SC's art 
department. But a few of us 
know his other identity: thai of 
a celebrity. He came by this 
fame simply by being a good 

Garren 's success can be at- 
tributed to his wife, Ruth. She 

"good husband" contest on the 
Oprah Winfrey show. Imme- 
diately she thought, "Sure, Bob 
could win this contest." With- 
out telling him, she wrote an 
entry letter describing what 
makes him such a good hus- 
band, and sent it to WTVC 
Channel 9 in Chattanooga, 
Tenn. Withindays,MrsGarren 
was informed that her letter 
had been one of five chosen 
locally to be sent to the Oprah 

It was then thatGarren found 
out about the contest. He was 
surprised and very pleased. 
"It's awfully nice to have your 
wife think highly of you. It's 
the best feeling I could have 
that she took the time to enter 
the contest. It was very flatter- 
ing," he said. 

Within a week, the Garrens 
were notified by the Oprah 
Winfrey show that out of 
50,000 letters, Mrs. Garren's 
was one of twenty-five that 
won. Three days later the 
couple flew to Chicago for the 
show's taping. During their 
twodaystay in the Windy City, 
the Garrens were treated like 
royalty. They stayed in the 
luxurious Hotel Niko, and were 
provided with a limousine, 
daily shoe shines, and room 
service. "One morning my 

breakfast came to over $20," 
said Garren. 

The actual taping of the show. 
which aired on Valentine's Day. 
took four to five hours. The 
show began with the entrance of 
all 25 husbands clad in sashes 
boasting the words HUSBAND 
OF THE YEAR. After this in- 
troduction each of the wives read 
a portion of the letter they had 
entered in the contest. The hus- 
bands then explained why they 
loved their wives. 

The Garrens 
eth couple to appear on the show 
They were both 
ing for their portion of the pro 
gram to be taped. Feeling 
ious, Garren thought maybe he 
had goofed when he remarked, 
"I married a clown and we've 
had fun ever since." 

However, this is probably a 
clue to what has kept the Garrens 
together for 22 years. Garren 
says. "Ruth is the easiest person 
in the world to live with." He 
went on to say that she's hilari- 
ous, accepting, and doesn't nag. 
"It's awfully fun to be married 

Mrs. Garren says. "He is sup- 
portive, thoughtful, considt rate, 
and a good role model for our 
two children." She also feels 
that they didn't have to work 
hard at their relationship. They 
owe this to the fact that their 
backgrounds and interests are 
compatible. "We even have our 
bad points in common." says 
Mrs. Garren. Now that the T.V. 
cameras are gone, Garren re- 
membershis experience fondly, 
;but is glad that his fame isn't 
more far-reaching. "I would 




Up and Down the Stairs. 

Here weare heading down towards Talge Hall 
on [his absolutely gorgeous spring afternoon. 
Everything that can blossom is doing so: dog- 
wood, spirea, maples, apple and peach trccb. 
lilacs. It's still a little early for magnolias but if 
this summery weather continues, it won't take 
long for those huge white beauties to pap open. 
By the way, if you wont to see some fine pink 
dogwoods check the parking lot in front of Talge 
and the hill to the left of the stairs going up from 
Thatcher to die library. 

This walk started in Hacknian Hall (several 
have this year! where I encountered Robert 
Zegurra— a senior, he's planning to canoe on the 
Buffalo River in Arkansas, then work in an eye- 
bank in Indianapolis, and later on this summer 
become a counselor at a California camp while 
waiting to hear from medical schools. Also ran 
into another senior. Lorena Voth, taking a break 
from Genetics lab (recombinant genes in mold 
spores); she's travelling through Europe, or 
working for the wellness program in Tampa, or 
both this summer. Might run into some more 
seniors before this trek is over. 

Here's a nice little seat on some stacked rail- 
road ties and look, here come two absolute oppo- 
sites: Stacy Gold in salmon-pink shorts, with 
while top (she's working at Florida Hospital this 
summer) and Tammie Kroehier with while skirt 
and salmon-pink blouse (she'll spend the sum- 
mer at Camp AuSable in Michigan), and here's 

Katt Smith (all cool in white and lime-green) who 
says she will be leaching swimming in her Nash- 
ville pool. Mel Robert Parrish. a newcomer, who 
says he's from New Jersey, Florida, and Califor- 
nia (neat trick) — he was turning in a work assign- 
ment. Meihinks he may have to give up that funky 
sweater when he actually goes to work! On the 
front porch of Talge encountered Peter Kenaston, 
a recent computer science graduate from Devries, 
exuding over all the good things that have hap- 
pened to him since his arrival yesterday. 

OK — in one minute's time while standing be- 
low the flagpole. I checked out the following 
activities going on: a freight train was crossing 
Apison Pike and roaring past McKee's, three vans 
filled with crisp uniformed nurses took off for 
various hospitals, Andy McConnell streaked out 
of Talge with a camcorder and lots of photo- 
graphic equipment and piled it into his while 
Volkswagon (looks like Strawberry Festival ac- 
tivity to me), and someone in a Grounds Dept. 
truck unloaded hundreds of petunia and saliva 
plants which will be set out in front of and at the 
side of Wright HalK Allinaminute: it was exactly 
2:05 p.m., April 16,1992! 

Lots of visitors parked in front of our columned 
administration building. I notice cars from West 
Virginia, Ontario, California, Kansas (shock of 
wheat on the plate), and Maryland to name a few. 
I wonder who these people are and what they're all 
doing. Well, after coming out of Wright Hal] 

By E.O. Grundset 

...In April 

where Mrs. Cynthia Bietz showed me the beau- 
tiful white and lavender orchid plant and Mrs. 
Mary Lou Rowe was taking visitors around and 
delivering "important documents." I bumped into 
fc'd Svhn idler, co-producer of Strawberry Festi- 
val. He reminded me that it's about time that he 
be recognized in this column! He's working 
from the City of Orlando in the Dept. of Parks and 
Recreation (already has his whistle! Hooked quite 
perky in his blue and white Hard Rock Cafe shin 

Dan Graham from Lakeland, Ga.. was setting 
out more petunias in the flower bed surrounding 
the greenery clipped to form the giant letters 
SMC. And tripping down the stairs here comes 
Sonja Darrelt all decked out in geometric pat- 
terns of orange, blue, and Vermillion i she's work- 
ing at Camp Kulaqua this summer). Up by the 
Student Center porch ran into Harvey HJllyer 
who says he'll be a waiter at Olive Garden and 
begin his physical therapy coarse at UTC soon. 

Well, to him and all the other seniors we 
extend heartiest congratulations. This Centen- 
nial Senior Class is one of the largest, if not the 
largest, to graduate from SC making this com- 
mencement very exciting. In the meantime, good 
luck to everyone on your finals, good-bye and 
have a fantastic summer. And, for this school- 
year, those will have to be the last words from Up 
and Down the Stairs.
