The Opinion Pages 



Finally changes that make 
students' lives easier 

Reluming students will find a lot of changes and improvements 
to Southern now that it is entering its first full year as a university. 
These changes, however, could have and should have come when 
Southern was still a college. Nonetheless, the school and its admin- 
istration should be commended for bringing changes thai will make 
things here a little easier for us. 

Information services has made it easier for us to access the 
internet. They have finally put in computers in the dormitories and 
other new stations in the student center and around campus. This 
l(~"\will provide students that do not have computers the chance to 
check email, browse the web for enjoyment or research during 
evening hours when most labs on campus are closed. 

As you walk into the cafe many of you may have noticed the 
informational monitor that greets you as you prepare to walk up the 
stairs to the cafe. This is a great way for students to find out what is 
going on and when. They need to continue this and even expand it 
to contain more useful information to us. 

In addition, the Talgc Hall residents will notice that there is an 
ATM machine located in the lobby of Talge Hall. And it is opera- 
tional. This is a brilliant idea. The Collcgedale Credit Union and 
the school should be praised for bringing this to Talge. Now they 
need to bring il to Thatcher Hall. 

This ATM machine is located in a very convenient place. Those 
of us who have an account with the credit union will no longer 
have to journey across the street to Flemming Plaza to use the ATM 
machine located there. It will also be available to those who don't 
have a Collcgedale Credit Union account — if you don't mind pay- 
ing a small fee. 

Additionally, students will notice that most all of the Southern 
College signs have finally been replaced with SAU signs. This does 
not effect us as much as the previous changes but it does provide 
some consistency to the school. Now we are a university because it 
says so on all of the signs. 

SAU should learn from these changes and continue to provide 
practical and useful changes that can make our lives easier and 
more enjoyable. 

Welcome to SAU Dr. Bietz 

The Accent wants to extend a very warm welcome to Dr. 

Gordon Bict/ ;is the new nicsiilcul ol Similium Advcntisl University. 
Dr. Bietz will do a trcmendouB job as president of this institution. He 
will provide fresh air and leadership to an institution that is going 
through many changes. 

Dr. Bietz has ihi' privilege of being the president presiding 
over the first full year of our university status. He not only has the 
opportunity of preparing our insilulion for the next century of edu- 
cation but he has the possibility of leading it there and beyond. 

We wish Dr. Bietz the best ol luck as he embarks on his new 
position as president of SAU. 

May God bless him, his family and his work here at SAU.

What's on your mind? 



Who would of thought, a bad minimum wagl 



By Jared Schneider 



Raising the minimum wage will help all 
Americans. At least this is what some 
politicians would like you to think. But 
here is the truth. According to the U.S. 
Department of Labor, only 3.7 million peo- 
ple currently earn the minimum wage, this 
is only three percent of the total civilian 
labor force — certainly not the majority of 
Americans. The bulk of this three percent 
earning minimum wage are part time work- 
ers between the ages of sixteen and twenty- 
four. So who receives the increase in pay? 
College and high school students, not blue 
collar workers. 

The moderate increase of pay received by ^ 



nple, 



wage employees is small 
pared to the employers' loss. For e 
John Daring owns a small grocery < 
His annual net income is about $ 36,000 a 
year from his business. He currently 
employs eight part-time workers at mini- 
mum wage. The increase in 
would result in an additional 



workers. Increasing the minimum wage is 
not a poverty- fighting tool, but rather 
results in a loss of low skilled jobs. 

The recent raise in minimum wage from 
$ 4.25 to $ 5. 1 5 an hour was encouraged by 
President Clinton early in the spring of 
1996. This was in an effort to '• make sure 
the minimum wage was a living wage." 
The increase however, is terribly short of a 
living wage. Based on a forty-hour work 
week, the new minimum wage yields slight- 
ly under ten thousand dollars a year. This 
increase will not be the cure-all that it is 
intended to be. 

For instance eighty percent of all minimum- 
wage workers live in non-poor households 
than 63 percent work part-time. 



The great majority receiving the i 

will not be parents struggling to feed their 

children. 

The perspective of an employer reveals 
the effects of increasing the minimum wage. 
For instance, the increases of the minimum 
wage to 5.15 an hour in addition to perks 
like Social Security and workmen's com- 

^dollars a yea, ,„ payroll What should ^^ lotals ,„>„„„, seven „ , ^ 

John do? He cliii i n K-i u ,,ii , ,„ mu « . . . 



John do? He can either lay off as many 
four employees or absorb the loss. In order 
to support his family, he has to lay off four 



hour. It does not make economic s 

hire a workers who produces only five to 



* dollars an hour. The i 



makes it unattractive for employers U 
more workers. Rising wage costs have* 
tually eliminated unskilled jobs like gas J 
attendants. Walter E. Williams .the p 
sor of economics at George Mason 
University, writes, " One effect of mi 
wage islojedureemployment opportune 
for low-skilled workers." The increase^ 
minimum wage is not a poverty fighter* 1 
rather a factor in the decline of low skill| 

Contrary to what many believe, the it 
mum wage has never been a safegi 
against poverty. Its main intent is 
as a safeguard against the few employ eR J 
that would take advantage of their em 
ees. Williams writes in his editorial 
"Minimum Wage, Maximum Folly". ' 
resolute ignorance leads one to believe ^ 
minimum-wages -are an.anti-poverty 
weapon." Overall, the increasing of mJJ 
mum wage is not in America's best int !

' If the thought of one more six inch 
veggies and cheese on wheat from 
Subway produces a groan, cheer up, 
there's a new sandwich in town. Under 
' 'construction last year, Schlotzsky's Deli 
is now open for business. My role is to 
let you know what tastes yummy, what 
to try if feeling adventurous, and what 
to run from. 

As usual, for vegetarians there is not 
a whole lot to pick from. "The 
Vegetarian" is the only menu sandwich 
without meal, but if another strikes your 
fancy, they can hold the meat. The 
Vegetarian is a "Light Sandwich" and 
comes stuffed with five different veg- 
etables, cheese, and Fat-Free Ranch 
dressing. I'm no fan of fat-free any- 



thing, and the dressing gives an odd 
sour taste. But for $3.99, itfs a good 
deal and minus the dressing, yummy 

Besides sandwiches, they serve 
pizza. I would direct those bold 
Soulhemites pining for a new palate 
taste to try the Mediterranean, 
Southwestern, or New Orleans pizzas. 
You can 86 the meat or not, it's up to 
you. For more adventure, throw on 
some Louisiana Hot Sauce. My advice, 
don't get just a plain cheese pizza. 
Schlotzsky apparently didn't like toma- 
to sauce (none have it), so a plain pizza 
tastes, well, plain. The "Vegetarian 
Special" pizza has lots of great vegeta- 
bles but nothing spicy enough to make 
it taste much better than cardboard. 

On the plus side, the atmosphere is 
comfortable and open. Pick a booth or 
a table, and unlike at Subway five peo- 
ple can actually sit together. There's a 
coffee bar, and this would be a great late 
night study spot. If the day is pretty, 
choose an outside table. If you're in a 
hurry, cruise the drive-thru. 

Schlotzsky's Deli combines cheap 
prices most can afford, a variety of 
choices, and a friendly atmosphere most 
fast food restaurants lack. 



The new Schlotzsky's Deli on Shallowford Rd. provides an excellent place to grab a bite to eat while you study outdJ 



Grady's Goodtimes are 
definitely good these days

UUM.U 



Nestled buck near the dollar-filly the- 
ter at Hamilton Place is Grady's 



Goodtimes restaurant, the setting for 
this writer's first restaurant review. 
Upon being seated at our table, my food 
consultant Aaron Raines, a Senior 
History major, and I were promptly 
greeted by our waiter, and brought our 
drinks (caffeine-free, of course). To 
start off with, we ordered the chips and 
queso appetizer, choosing the spinach 
queso option, Not only was the spinach 
queso quite delicious, but the salsa that 
came with the chips was wonderful 



itself. After munching on the chips and 
queso for quite some time, we decided 
that the serving was large enough for at 
least four people, and that we'd better 
leave some room for the main course. 

Going for the traditional vegetarian 
approach to dining, I ordered the Grilled 
Vegetable Pasta for $8.25. It came with 
an assortment of vegetables in light 
sauce tossed with fresh pasta, and was 
one of the best vegetarian pasta dishes 
I've ever eaten. Aaron, siding with the 



meat-eaters among us, chose the Grilled 
Chicken Pasta for $8.95, which was 
much like the above vegetable pasta. 
only with fewer vegetables and much 
more chicken. He too agreed that the 
pasta was very good, and that the chick- 
After being persuaded by the waitress 
to try dessert, I managed to eat most of a 
Chocolate Bar Cake; priced at $4.50, 
and worth every penny of it. That it was 
rich was an understatement, and had it 



not been for the vanilla ice 
came with it, I might not have been «i| 
to finish as much as I did. 

Overall, I was quite pleased with rl 
the service and the food, for which! 
prices were very reasonable. As fa 
atmosphere goes, you cert 
need a suit or a dress to g 
wouldn't suggest sandals and atanti 
either. In review, here are the baskl

Hope is 
truly very 
powerful 



ft 

Jamie 
Arnall ! 



As people grow older 
we sometimes notice a 
decline in their will- 
ingness to try new 
things. Perhaps it is 
the fear of failure or 
the contentment they 
have found in their 
already developed 
abilities.

for Ihc morning' newscast. "This experience 
gave me a lol of knowledge when I came 
into the class," said George. He is ihe cre- 
ative mind behind the graphic design for the 
show, and admits he likes the technical side 
of the production better than being in front 

The students spend a tremendous amount 
of time and effort in Ihe production of a 
newscast. "We do everything, from writing 
it. to assembling it." said Jamte Arnall, 
junior broadcasting journalism major. 
Arnall interned last summer at the ABC 
affiliate in Asheville, N.C. Like George. 
Amall admits that he enjoys the technical 
side of the production better. "Writing is 
more challenging," he said. Minoring in 
public relations and religion. Amall's goal is 
to work in communications for the church 
"The experience I've gained will be benefi- 
cial, and the skills will be applicable to mul- 
tiple lines of work," he said. 

The class is taught by Stephen Ruf. a for- 
mer news reporter for WDEF-TV, die CBS 
affiliate in Chattanooga. "1 have been 
dirilled with these kids. The students have 
exceeded my expectations because, as 
we've all discovered, it's a demanding 
course." Ruf said. 

Because the class is small, a lot of team 
work is involved. Every student lakes turns 
dealing with the dilTcrent aspects of a news 
production; running camera, audio control, 
and tape operator. "Because there are only 
five in the class, there is a lot of 
student/teacher inieraeimn. I've learned so 
much. Mr. Ruf is critical, but he makes us 
better," said Crystal Candy, a junior broad- 



Crystal Candy airs a package on how Barbie is being redesigned, 




cist n'Mi'iulism major. 

Candy also interns at Channel 3 in 
Chattanooga. This is her second year with 
the station. She interviews and reports news 
as needed. "This class reinforces what I've 
learned working al Channel 3," Candy said 
Unhkc George and Arnall. she admits that 
she's better in front of the camera "I'm not 
good with the technical stuff," she added. 

The class works in teams of two, usually 
one reporter and a v ideograph er. Students 
must also shuoi. write and edit their own 
stones. "Thai's a lot of pressure on one per- 
son." said Jean DesAmours, a senior broad- 
cast journalism major. 



One aspect of the class that he's enjoyed 
is the hands-on experience. "I've learned so 
much in six or seven weeks. It gives you a 
taste of what the real world is really like." 

The class currently tapes the show in a 
studio on the first floor of Brock Hall. The 
backdrop is somewhat makeshift, but that 
should improve. Channel 3 is donating their 
5:30 p.m. news set to SAU's Journalism and 
Communication Department. The depart- 
ment plans to teach the class every other 
year, but if enough students are eligible, the 
course might be taught again next fall.

to poison the disease. Because the cancer-

they are the first cells Ihat the treatment 
kills. However, the drugs arc also toxic to 
the healthy cells, so the treatment often

Also only a dollar ride from Manhattan is probably the most diverse

Scrap Southern's MBA program

From the beginning. Souilieni played a role m our ehureh's overall mis-

reaching our objective of furthering ihe Advent message. 

For instance, the modern world, in large pail, has proven unreceplive lo 
the anachronistic approach ol public evangelism, and organized religion. 
Secularism has permeated America and Western I'.urope and is slowly 
spreading to ihe Thud World - which happens lobe the only place where 
Adventism is growing significantly. In such a secular society, our old 
ways of doing things no longer work.

Letters to the Editor 



C.A.R.E. positions should not be elected 



Tradition for tradition's sake is ridiculous 



I feel il necessary to respond to 
Geof Greenway's column about 
C.A.R.E. I am a junior Theology 
major, and although I have never 
held a C.A.R.E. office position, I 
have been involved in many 
C.A.R.E. ministries, so I feel quali- 
fied to respond lo Geof s position. 

Firstly, Geof has slated lhat 
C.A.R.E. is falling short of it's 
name. He supported this by saying 
many students feel unwelcome, 
can't find their place, and fall short 
of leaders expectations. I would 
question his use of the word many. 
How many is many? Geof, are you 
suggesting ihe majority of students 
are not being blessed by the 






reserved lor his officers. Had you 
ever gone to Ken with an idea, you 
would have received the same kind 
of response I did. 

You suggested an election of 
officers would solve the alleged 
problem. Again, I must disagree. 
Why? Because anyone can apply 
for ihe positions, and the best appli- 
cant is chosen. Many people who 
would shun an election process 
(like me) would consider applying 
for a position lhat will be given to 
the most qualified applicant. By the 
way, this is how ii works in (he 
church too. Pastors are nol hired by 
election. They musl apply, inter- 
view, and be selected by someone 
campus? It is very difficult, with the authority to hire. Student 
impossible lo offer programs Government should not be com- 
pared to student ministry, they are 
two very different processes. And 
besides since when did a school 
i. lei i mil help us diversify or place 
people of various ethnic back- 
grounds in office? 

Your opening paragraph suggest- 



2.A.R.E. umbrella. The 
last time 1 checked, they allowed 
anyone to participate and they 
accept any suggestions for 
improvement. New 



for everyone. 

But, let's say for the moment 
that there is nothing there lhat is 
working for you. You've said there 
arc no alternatives. I beg to differ. 
You skipped over starling your owi 
ministry, as if anything you try to 
do will be rejected by the C.A.R.E. 
office. I know by experience that were nol 

Ken Rogers and the C.A.R.E. office that you 
will ->- - 



elected. You praised ihe SA for the 
great job they've been doing, and it 
appears ih.it you are relating their 
success directly to the fact that they 
are elected officials Geof. one day 
you will graduate from school and 
get hired somewhere If you think 
lor a moment that because you 
elected to your position 
ue not going to beheld 



There was once a newly married 
couple that sat down to their first 
dinner of meatloaf which the wife 
had prepared using one of her moth- 
er's recipes The husband noticed 
that before placing the mealloal in 
the oven his wife cut the ends off the 
nieailnai and threw them away. He 
asked her why and she simply 
replied, "I don't know, that's the 
way my mother always did it." So 
ihe next time they visited her moth- 
er's house he asked bis mother-in- 
law il she cut the ends off her meal- 
loaf and if so. why. "Because my 
mother always did," was the reply. 
The next week the couple visited the 
wile's grandmother and ihe husband 
figured he'd ask the question about 
the meatloaf again. The old lady 
replied, "Well I have a small oven 
and dial's the onl\ \\a\ the nieailnai 
will fit in the oven!" The moral of 
the story is lhat tradition for tradi- 
tion's sake can be quite ridiculous 

I was standing in line in the cafe 
after my 12:00 conditioning class 
when someone tapped my arm. I 
looked around and there was a sweet 
little old lady standing there smiling 
up at me asking. 'You are going to 
take sour lood upstairs aren't you?" 
The reason she asked was because I 
was wearing shorts, one of the time

Short Story 



Finding Peace at the Piggly Wiggly 



Gladys buys her groceries at the Piggly 
WujcU where I do my shopping. 

Thin and smalt, she walks hunched over. 
Her hair is strikingly white, and each lime 
we meet I can count on her wearing a little 
red-flowered house dress, Ked lennies on 
her feet, and a pale-yellow cardigan cling- 
ing to her shoulders. Though sometimes 
she forgets to put in her teeth, her checks 
arc never without a smidgen of pink rouge. 

Every time I sec her, her can holds two 
oranges, a tiny tin of coffee, grape gum, 
small loaf of bread, jelly, box of Yum Yum 
moon pics, and 15 cans of Fancy Feast cat 

She has a gentle smile and a soft voice. 
She pushes her cart around the store eager- 
ly, looking to trigger a 



She looks at me with sad, vacant eyes. 
Eyes that crave companionship. Eyes that 
search for a friend. Eyes that tell of how 
she lives in a house filled with furniture, 
but where only one chair is used. In a 
house that used to ring with precious little 
ones' voices and the hubbub of a family, 
and now only echoes the steady blare of 
Dob Barker. A house that was once a 

Her children never call. Her husband 
has passed on. And her neighbors don'l 



bother. 

Gladys. 

She has many a story from a lifetime 
gone by that no one cares to hear. A heart 
that was once full of love but has now 
withered up and waits to die. 

I think of her often, my Piggly Wiggly 
friend. I crave to tell her that I want to 
hear her stories. I want to take her to the 
park. I want to sit down and look at her 
pictures, share a yummy lemonade, and 
make her days happy. 

But I don't. 

Because I don't know how. Because it 
makes me uncomfortable. Because I have 
an accounting test tomorrow. 

There is a boy in the cafeteria. 1 do not 
know his name, but I have seen him before. 

He is big and dresses, well, differently. 
He sometimes smells not so pleasant. 

He sits solo and devours his meal. 

[ wonder if he feels conspicuous as the 
only one at a spacious table. He scarfs 
down entree' after entree' and never looks 
up. 

I wonder if he wants to be alone or if he 
wishes he were surrounded by others. I 
wonder if he ever looks around at all the 
smiling faces and longs for a dinner com- 
panion, jusl once. 

I wonder if he thinks about his life and 
gets tears in his eyes. If a lump forms in 
his throat. If he can barely choke down his 
food, thinking about all that he wants to be 
but is not. Wondering if things will ever be 
better. If he will ever be accepted or spe- 



ei.il or even normal. 

I see him every day. Sometimes I try to 
catch his eye, but I never do. 

I want to sit by htm and ask him what 
his major is. I want to become his friend 
and invite him to go bowling with us this 
weekend. 

But Idon'L 

And he leaves the cafeteria again, just 
the way he came in-alone. 

I see a gaunt boy in the fourth grade 
with chocolate eyes and pale cheeks. His 
hair begs for a cut. His stomach cries for 
breakfast. 

I see him struggle with his little sister. 
He feeds her and dresses her. He makes 
her stand up straight and brush her teeth. 
He has taught her to color in the lines and 
say "Please" and "Thank you." He reads to 
her at night, and shivers in November so 
that she can feel toasty warm wearing his 
dingy parka. 

I see him being the mother, the father. 
Because they are not around. Because he 
has to to survive. Because no one helps 
him but himself. 

I see him drag his sleepy sibling onto 
the city bus every morning and get them to 
school on time. I see him scrounge around 
to find lunch so she does not go without. 

I see people who know this solemn boy 
who lives up to the responsibilities of a 
man. People who do nothing, who rum 
their heads, who jump into their Volvos and 
speed away to play racquetball. People 
who recognize his courage, his discipline— 



and offer no support. No help. No ride to 
school, no oatmeal for breakfast, no money 
for lunch. 

I do not feel sorry for the people 1 see 
hurting everyday. 1 do not shake my head 
and say, "Oh, what a shame." 

I feel sorry for myself. I feel sorry for ' 
our society, that we have not loved those 
who are not so perfectly easy to love. 

I feel sorry that we do not have the time 
or the ambition to go the extra mile. The 
extra foot. 

I feel sad thinking that we have gotten 
so caught up in everyday, petty things, in 
ourselves, in our "turning in," and getting 
ahead, and have forgotten. Forgotten those 
who have nothing to offer us but are still 
people. Those who are still significant.

OK, so this kid comes to sec me

Of 






m doing a favor for 
omebody to sec the guy. Thai's 
iow it always is. Nobody ever real- 
y wunts to see anybody in our busi- 
less because nobody ever wants to 
lire un entry-level person, Heck, 
lut you never know. So I tell the kid 
o come in at 7;30 a.m. He shows up 
it 7:45 a.m. with nothing except his 



Rule No. 1: Be there at 7:15 
when 7:30 is called for. You never 
know when you may catch the target 
(me) helore his assi slant comes in to 
block you (not at my place, of 
course, h t 'taii-e everybody has been 
in for an hour already), 

Rule No. 2: Don't come in 
empty-handed. Bring demurs. Bring 
bagels link, brine coffee. Bring a 
('.'■«$'■; bee McMufiln. But don't 
lusi brine vuiu.l-11' Nobody wants to 
sec you anyway. They always want 
to see a Dunkin' Donut. 

So he sits down and I ask him 
why he wunts to see me. He hems 
and haws, something about the mar- 
ket. Something about looking to impression. You 






change careers.

I ask him what he likes about the

mation what he reads. He says die 
Journal sometimes, TheStreet.com 

Rule No. 4: You read even thine. 
You devour TheSi ill! som— believe

reads us. so you will make a great 



Journal. You read Barron's, 
ire there Investor's Busmen Daily, Business 
money. If Week, Forbes and Fortune. And you 



watch CNBC because we all do. 

I ask what he likes in the stock 
market. He says the market is too 
high. So I ask him what he would 
short. He says he doesn't know, and 
then he mentions Coke, "because it 
missed the numbers." 

Rule No. 5: Be ready with a half- 
dozen ideas. If you don't like the 
market, be ready with a half-dozen 
shorts. Know where they went out, 
their 52-week range, their price-to-

I tell him to leave. 

This interview did not have to be 
painful. When you get your 15 min- 
utes, use them wisely. While I am 
not hiring, periodically someone 
puts the screws to me to see some- 
body to "help him." They are always 
the same. They are always a waste 



Me proud of 
your success!

The men behind the Mack 



Amazing, I can't believe this is my final 
Accent article! It seems like just yesterday 
that I was begging for an Accent job.... 
Wait, that was just yesterday! It is at times 

■ like this that I remember 
the wise words of my 
great great grandfather's 



Mack 



we're only distaiilly 
rclaicd. hut somehow the 
idea of us dating seems 
wrong." True, those 
,vere wise words, but I 
was thinking of when she 
said, "once a produce stocker, always a pro- 
duce stocker." Sure I felt unworthy, sure I 
seemed inadequate, and sure I embezzled 47 
pounds of raw cabbage to feed my hamster, 
but I must move beyond that! I've been 
given a gift for stocking produce, and it's 
nine u.i slop deny ing that now! 

It seems like I heard someone say one 
time that life is like a box of Kibbles 'nBits- 
-you just never know what you're gonna 
get! I still don't really understand that say- 
ing..,. If you just read the label on the box, 
you'd know why there's a funny taste in 



your mouth! Read labels and keep a posi- 
tive altitude, that's what I always say, I just 
keep repeating to myself, "I'm good 
enough, I'm smart enough, and dog-gone-it- 
-I have an incredibly flexible appearance!" 

Sure, I'll miss writing for the Accent. 
Truth be told, I feel bad already knowing the 
hole my absence will create in the humor 
section. In thinking about this while eating 
pink gummy worms, the MOTHER of all 
great ideas hit me! Why not come up with 
this fictitious character to write for the 
AccentV. He could have his own morphed 
picture, his own personality, and his own 
desk in the Accent office! Okay, so maybe 
his own "personality" is a little extreme, but 
just stay with me here.... This character 
could answer student questions-some real, 
and other questions not so real. He could 
poke fun at events, people, and even himself 
accidentally. He could have his own social 
life and be just like a real person! He would 
be so real that people would wonder about 
his identity, speculate about his where- 
abouts, and secretly search the Joker trying 
to identify him! He could be the Dark Man- 
-the shadowy enigma of the humor section! 

So then, I kicked my NoDoz addiction--it 
was giving my delusions of grandeur! What 
a hair brain idea! Who would believe an 



the Accent? Who would huy'inio \ 
dom of a character so co|ui'-| L1 | ,,, 
and so photo-edited that nobody . 
believe him to be real? And who » 
actually write the column? An ii 
guy obviously wouldn't have adec 
guage skills, an abundance of creaii\ ]K 
limitless understanding ol all ih L - .icImJ. 
ing wisdom known to humanity! 

I guess my idea could never «

The Opinion Pages 



A dangerous precedent 



The Student Services office may have set a dangerous j-.ivlc.Iui wlun 
they recently granted the Roleracl Club work space in the Student 
Activities Room. 
We don't doubt thai the Roteraci Club needs this space, 
the other clubs on campus? Yes. it is 
er and needed a space to use it. But w, 
pus that have computers and 



donated a compui- 
: sure there are other clubs on cam- 
. and could use. a work space, 
school, and particularly Student Services, prepared to give every 






campus club work spate if they have a computer or have another need lor 
the space? Where is the line drawn? Is one club so much better than any 
other that they get work space. 

Student Services ,md the president sanl III.' KolcraU Club asked loi llie 
work space because Ihey bad a donated computci on condition that they had 

Ken Wetmore. SA President, however, had asked For the use of the room 
for the social vice presidents early in first semester Dr Bill Wotilers, vice 
president for student sen-ices, denied ever being asked by SA for use of the 
Student Activities Room. 

Nevertheless, Wotilers said oilier clubs, it lliey asked, would be eorwd- 
ered for work space. Each individual club's situation would be analyzed and 
chosen on need. 
n This is not the right approach to take. 

Regardless of need if one club receives work space then every club 
should receive it tilth legitimate club on campus should be treated equal 
ly. This choosing of one club over another only creates animosity between 

Realistically speaking, however, if all campus clubs are to have a work 

space there would be no room Unless, tbal is, the school opens up Hackman 
Hall. Daniels Hall, or some other area for campus clubs and maybe even 
more SA offices. 

We encourage every club on campus to go ask the Student Services nlficc 
for a work space for your computer. 

If Roleracl club deserves work space so docs your club. 

Hypocrisy in following 
Advent health message 

Anybody tired of the legalism and hypocrisy when it comes to the 
Advent health message? We as a Christian denomination have 
been blessed with inspired counsel regarding health. Mrs. While 
preached ideas that were decides ahead of her time. 

Nevertheless, we may have forgotten the underlying principles, reptac- 



Forexampli 
can be boiled down 
a live a balanced and 



ing them with shallow rules and legali 
much of what Mrs. White suggested regarding health 
as follows: avoid lhat which is bad for you und seek I 
healthy lifestyle. 

A healthy lifestyle is a general principle, and involves more than just 
eliminating dead flesh liom the du I I lie legalism creeps in when we ti 
gel that good health is a way of life ami not merely vegetarianism. It 
seems hypocritical how we think we're abiding by the health message 
when we cut out meal but still use the deep fryer for much of what we eat. 
Il seems odd how we tan cut out enffienated beverages but eat freely from 
the bo* of Krispy Kreme donuts. 

Maybe donuts are too mild of an example. Perhaps we feel self-right- 
eous when we don't smoke cigarettes, but we do not feel guilty for failing 
to engage in a routine exercise plan We lliiuk we're so healthy because 
we religiously avoid alcohol, but having that extra helping of ice cream 
carries no moral opprobrium. 

Indeed, vegetarianism is not enough If that's all we think we have to 
do for good health, then we've missed the whole idea ol health reform. 
Health reform means inking advantage ol niedkal and nutritional break- 
throughs and eating a lowfai and low cholesterol diet. It also means exer- 
cising and maybe' even some vitamin supple! iicnialion II means taking a 
principled appioach to our health rather than a rule based approach. 

A rule based approach comes up short, for instance, we Adventists 
have attached a moral aspect to luami.miing health Dunking, smoking, 
anil illegal drugs are out of the question However, one could eat a do/en 
donuts for breakfast, have a greasy deep tried lunch wiih an ice-cream 
Sunday to lop it off Hie person could then have a candy bar as an after- 
noon snack and a (aliening dinner void ol the live essential servings of 
fruits and vegetables Mien, alter dinner plop down in front of the TV for 
the rest of the evening without doing any exercise. Such a paltem of 
activity would not engender any moral criticism. 

Conversely, another person could rouimcK begin the day with a three 
mile jog and a half hour of weight training Me could proceed to a well- 
balanced organic breakfast topped ol with v iiaonii Mipplemenls, Then he 
could cat U vegetable-laden lunch coupled wiih twenty minutes of fresh-air 
and sunshine His dinner could again be a nuliilumist dream, but in addi- 
tion, our hypothetical person would include one glass ol red wine because 
of the recent research that indicates ihe llavanouls in red wine help reduce 
the risk of cardiovascular disease. Unlike out douul loving fellow, our 
exercising health nut would be shunned as an unmoral sinner. 

Now, we are uoi advocating wine drinking- -however research has 
recently extolled its benefits— we are suggesting a more principled 

health. If wine drinking is w rung then a high fat diet and lack 
s equally as wrong. 
So let's nol think vegetarianism is the end of the story.

School of Education not forced to 
renew accreditation 

The article headed "Education Department Forced 



stand accreditation or realize that several various orea' 1 
tions offer educational accreditation. Southern's Ed u ^ 
department has never been without accreditation ti , 
accredited by the State of Tennessee, the Southern ' 
Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS the major 
accrediting body for our area of the United Stales) and l, 
the Seventh-day Adventist church. Most teacher traini ^| 
programs in universities across America are accredited?" 
by their stale and regional accrediting agencies. 

30 years, S AU's teacher-training program i 



national accrediting body. Bur 
NCATE standards a 
and advised Tennessee colleges and universities that tiy'l 
need not have both NCATE and state accreditation sinctL 
they were now identical. Relieved that we could avoiddfl 
stiff NCATE fees, SAU allowed its NCATE accreditatia,¥ 
expire in 1991 and retained state, regional, i — 
accreditation. 

few years later, we decided that the state's advice, I 
le la. ■ 

reinstated our NCATE accreditation. The tt 
inspected our teacher training program was very favnraj 
impressed with it. S AU's program met ALL of the monT 
than 90 NCATE standards and received full approval (raj 
them for the maximum time allowed-5 years. We at 
accredited by SACS, Tennessee, the SDA church, and 
NCATE. Our School of Education and Psychology hs| 
highest possible accreditation. Many institu ' 
bother with NCATE accreditation because it is expensntl 
and involves such hard work to prepare the n 
ments required. 

SAU graduates from 1992-1996 were not harmed in 
way by our lack of NCATE accreditation during those I 
years. For many year's we have placed all education pi 
ates who were willing to accept jobs wherever Ihe jot 
were located. A few who insisted on teaching only ci 
grades in the Chattanooga area have had placement d 
ty, but this is a mailer unrelated to accreditation. 



other accreditation We weren'l "forced" lo renc 
voluntarily renewed it in spite of expense and ha 
order to make our program the best it could be. 

The Southern Accent's report of NCATE's approval I 
appears negative and less than honest. This type of refJ 
ing hurts the program we are trying to hard lo build atid| 
leaves an alarmingly false impression. In the future, w 
you are reporting on something as sensitive and crucial j 



ble. 

When the State asks for our accreditation document^ 
use as a superior model for other institutions i 
our staff to assist them in developing similar programsBl 
excellence, it is appalling lo have our own school pap«| 
shinning us down!

Movie Review 

The Titanic is masterfully resurrected in Jamej 
Cameron's epic film of the 1912 disaster 



First, 1 must say this; James 
Cameron, the director of Titanic, is 
a genius. He wrote, directed, and 
produced this spectacular recreation 
of one of history's greatest 
tragedies, and filled il with sus- 
pense, heartfelt emotion, and sensa- 
tional special effects sequences. 
Even though the movie is over 
three hours long, lime passed too 
quickly. 

Titanic will definitely make 
stars oul of Leonardo DiCaprio and 
Kale Winslet, who simply light up 
the screen with their beautiful 
romance. If this were a film about 
anything other dian the doomed 
Titanic, I would say a sequel is def- 
iniiely in order. 

The musical score by James 
Homer was an 
absolutely perfect 
choice; it's haunting 
and unforgettable, as 
well as peaceful and 



limes tunny, and entertaining. 

Titanic focuses on the fictional 
characters ol first-class passenger 
Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kale 
Winslet). a sheltered seventeen- 
year-old society girl, and third-class 
passenger Jack Dawson (Leonardo 
Didprio). a young, penniless artist

I have no idea 

praising this film. The 
monumental task of 
bringing the mon- 
strous ship back to life 
could only be pulled 
off by a few directors, 
Cameron obviously 
being one of them. To 
sec the Titanic sailing 

magnificent. It is by 
far Cameron's greatest work. The 
action is incredible, the effects are 
realistic, the characters arc sympa- 
thetic, and (he plot is far better than 
one can anticipate. 

Titanic* s visual effects arc noth- 
ing short of astounding, but whal 
really affected me was the movie's 
emotional human story. Titanic 
moved me in a way no other fdm 
could. I was left speechless when 1 
saw it. I lcfl the theater in a daze, 
and it was the closesi I have ever 
come lo crying over a film.

money" Molly Brown (Kathy 
Bates), Boat Captain E.J. Smith and 
master shipbuilder Thomas 
Andrews fill their small roles with 
tragic nobility. 

The best part of Titanic is the 
boat itself Before we ever see his 
recreation of the vessel, Cameron 
takes us io the bottom of the ocean 
lo see the ghostly pictures of the 
ikili.iI lii, uiic wreckage. In a long 
uiulcrwaici Hacking sequence, the 
camera shows a crystal chandelier 
and a dilapidated piano as we hear 
the hunt sounds of ballroom music. 
It's a beauiitul, haunting messenger 
lo die finale ol the ship's collapse. 
Titanic will lake you by surprise 
as a roniantic lust paced, entertain- 
ing, and emotional ride. This is a 
lilm ilea v. ill go down m history as 
one of the best ever made.

Picks for top 10 albums of 1997 



By Kameron DeVasher 



Each year hundreds, if not thousands of 
new albums hit the sales market. But after 
looking through ions of titles and listening lo 



bad year for r 

This year we witnessed the dealh of rapper 
Notorious B.I.G, die abandonment of Bill 
Berry from R.E.M. (give me a minute), and 
the debut of the 90's New Kids- the Hanson 
sisters. 1 found il painfully easy to collect Ihe 

albums of the year in comparison t 

digging rcquir 

ms of 1997, E 
e the official results: 

The Best 

10) Sara MeLachlan- This Lilith Fair instiga- 
tor established herself as the icon for (he top- 
grossing music festival of the year. Her new 
album. Surfacing, is simply beautiful, very 
well produced, and I highly recommend it. 






9) Chemical Brothers- With Dig Y. 
Hole, these two real-lile brothers create- 
sound that is uniquely their own. In an i 
monotonous techno rhythms, songs like 
"Block Rockin' Beats" rejuvenates the clec- 
tronica/techno sound into something once 
again cool and for lhat, I salute them. 

8) Jars of Clay- Following Ihe success of 
their 1995 debut release, this year's Much 
Afraid delivers exactly what these Christian 
music giants needed to retain their title as 
one of their industries most popular bands. 
They again have a radio hil with "Crazy 
Times" and are now performing all over ihe 



7) Radiohead- These guys are incredible. 
They have received acclaim from almost 
every music critic on the planet and still ho 
very few popular radio songs, "Creep" 



6) Reality Check- Their self-titled debut is 
the second of ihree Christian albums on Ibis 
lop 10 list. This band has so much potential 
lo be huge after successfully blending hip- 
hop rhythms, distorted electric guitars, har- 
monic vocals, and intellectual rap in this first 
album. I love their sound, and hopefully 
many more will agree with me shortly. 

5) Plumb- The final Christian band of the 
list, this self-titled debut is awesome. Plumb 
got some serious help from the guys in Jars 
ol Clay (production and secular distribution), 
and that boost has made them one of the 
fastest growing bands in the industry today. 
Their uniqueness comes Iron, the beautiful 
vocal siylings of lead singer Tiffany 
of Arbuckle. overall songwriimg brilliance and 
obvious band talent. 

4) Elton John- The legendary pianist delivers 

once again wilh his newest album entitled 
The Big Picture. John has enjoyed a surge of 
popularity wilh ihe release of the Princess 
Diana tribute single ■'Candle in the Wind 
1997" which became the largest selling simile 
of all time. The other son* on that sineie the 
first single of this new album, is well on it's 
way up the charts as well. If you like Elton' 
John, you'll love this album. 



3) Titanic- Coming in at number three, 
Titanic is ihe only soundtrack on the list. 
With no real competition in it's genre 
(Spawn, Scream 2, etc..) this album is actu- 
ally filled with really good music. It's a 
wonderfully arranged and well-produced' 
album that is soothing to hear. If you have 



n the 



j the 



u back i. 



ie brought c 



2) 31 1- Transistor is the newest release from 
this front-running alternative band. 311 has 
finally gotten big after spending several years 
playing small clubs and struggling to be 
heard. Now the music world has heard them, 
and they just keep getting bigger. Singles 
now being played are "Prisoner" and the title 
track "Transistor." If you've never listened to 
them- try them, odds are you'll soon be a fan. 

1) Oasis- If v.

The Opinion Pages 



Theater attendance at SAU 

Have you ever read through the entire student handbook or al least 
browsed its policy of theater attendance? If you have you probably 
noticed the clause that states you can be punished for attending a 
motion picture theater. 

Rest assured ,111 you movie goers, thai clause has been taken out of the 
rules just not out of your copy of the handbook. There is more, however, 
to this touchy issue than the forgone possibility of being punished for 
attending the movie-- What is the real issue? 

Over the years our church and school have frowned upon attending 



Nevertheless, this is the impression young people are getting from, 
what seems to them, a very legalistic rule. They see their elders shunning 
movies at the theater bui wniching those same movies from the comfort of 
told over and over again that going to the 
told why? They arc left with the impression 
that a movie is bad to see in the theater hut alright to see at home On 

h The real iss 

lee. A rated R 

To help illustrate this point, take the 

where they showed the movie "Toy Story." This movie was shown, bum 

video, cm ;i large screen in I he cafe Students watched it from the comlori 

of their not so comfortable cafe chairs and were served popcorn and soda 

in the back Wh.il then, is the difference between watching that same 

muvit in the theater 'The movie is shown, from film, on a large screen 

and you sit in comfortable chairs and you have to pay outrageous prices 

for your popcorn 



it where you go see a movie, hut what movie you 
is still a rated K movie no matter where you watch it.

these are some differences, however Hut to say n is okay to watch the 
cafe version over the theater version is laughable. 

We should not be told the theater is evil. We should be lold why certain 
movies would be harmful to us and as Christians we should not see such a 
film. We should be told that this movie is had because of Hie excessive and 
unnecessary violence, the terrible amount of profanity, and the expli' 



theater. 

We challenge the school to pul a little thought into why rules and poli- 
cies exist. We challenge the school In give us thoughtful explanations. And 
we challenge the school look into the danger of having rules for the sake 
of rules.

We predicted resignations 



Continuing where they left off last 
plagued by resignations. In the November 20 issue we conveyed our 
deep concern over i he amount ol re signal inns taking place within the 
SA Senate. 

At the lime we expressed this concern, there were only two Senate res- 
ignations, however, vu predicted there to be al least three or four more. We 
were right in predicting more, but we were wrong with the number. Five 
more SA senators have resigned Mine November and lour have been in the 



first few w 


eeks of this semester.

concerned ov

some have had. For example, due to a m

Senator an

happens t

Where is those with eommillmcnl here at Southern': 1 This lime around we

Letters to the Editor 



Surprised about Titanic' review 



A thoughtful editorial on health 



I was surprised to find almost a 
full page of the January 15 issue o 
the Southern Accent dedicated to 
movie and pop music reviews. 
Given the University's written — 
albeit nut enforced — stance on the- 
ater attendance, il seems inappro- 
priate i Those in doubt on the policy 
ui.o, find H on the lasi page of the 
97 98 handbook in the back of the 
calendar) Yes, I know Deans and 
RAs donl stake oul movie theaters 
on Saturday nitilu. That's probably 
good It gives students an opportu- 
ne In make personal decisions 
aboul what Ihey waich. Many 
choose to go io the theater. Given 
ilus current discrepancy between 
SAU policy and students' behavior, 
covering movies in the official uni- 
versity newspaper needs to be 
thought through very carefully. 

The thing 1 find hiom disturbing 
aboul the lilaiuc review in the 
Accent, is that the author failed, 
almost completely, to present infor- 
mation thai Christians who are con- 
sidenng viewing il would find use- 
lul. Yes, the author does a great job 
ol describing the plot and -tunning 



more useful form would give a 
brief description of the plot, then 
focus on moral aspects of the film, 
fhe reviewer should answer ques- 

• Does the film contain profanity? 

• What about nudity and sex? 

• Does the film promote drink- 
ing, smoking, or drugs? 

• How violent is the film? 

• How does the film portray 
God and religious figures like pas- 
tors and priests? 

An excellent model for this kind of 
review may be found on the 
Internet at the FamilyStyle Movie 
Guidhllp://www.familystyle.com). 
It analyzes currently showing 
movies, giving detailed answers to 
the alime mie-itoiis. 1 highly rec- 
ommend it to those of you who go 
to the theater, but would like more 
complete information before buying 
your ticket. Remember to filter the 
niloniuiion you find at FamilyStyle 
through Philippians 4:8. This obvi- 
ously isnl a magic formula for per- 
fect movie watching. Maybe it will 
help. Hopefully any future Accent 
movie reviews will contain more of 
this kind ol information in addition 
to the standard review of the plot 
and cinematography. 



I enjoyed the thoughtful editorial 
"Hypocrisy in following Advent 
health message" (January 15), and I 
do understand why the editor imag- 
ined red wine on thai health-con- 
scious person's table. It was to 
make a point aboul consistency, not 
to recommend wine drinking per 



Another common kind of 
hypocrisy ignores the fact that the 
dietary benefits of wine come from 
not the alcohol.

whisky, gin. nor any other alcoholic 
drink has red wine's good effect on 
blood vessels Rvcn more interest- 
ing, no reporter mentioned grape 
juice ai all. even thoutzh the studies 
do. Why not? 

Could the reason be wine's asso- 
ciation with culture and class? But 
ignoring it- legacy ol immense mis- 
ery for mankind as a whole is sheer 



hypocrisy. Never mind the pamlldl

Preventing skiing injuries begins weeks before the trij 

Getting in shape with a proper exercise program is key to preventing injury shaped skis dominate market : 



Winter has finally arrived and 
that means ski season. And don't 
forget spring break will be here in 

packing up the skis and heading for 

Whether you are heading up to 
New England or out west to 
Colorado or Utah lo ski during 
spring break there are several dungs 
to keep in mind thai will help you 
have a safe and enjoyable trip. 

Preventing injury weeks 
before the ski trip 

Like many sports. 



■ feet and speeding down the 
ipe can produce a tremendous 
lount of torque and force on your 
dy. 
"Perhaps the most common area 

the body that sustains serious 
urics while skiing arc the knees," 
d Brian Gang, a physical thera- 
;l, Southern alumnist, and avid 
icr. "With the advances in bind- 



W^gf occurrence of fractured t 
sharply; 






unfortunately have not." 

Getting in shape before you ski, 
Gang said, is important in prevent- 
ing injury lor several reasons first 
of all, lie said, "most injuries ocelli 
while you are fatigued, so gelling in 
shape is going to reduce your 
latigue level when you ski. Second, 
by increasing die strength of the 
muscles around your joints, particu- 
larly the knee, as well as your 
awareness of movement at the joint 
you can increase llie dynamic stabil- 
ity of the joint and thus reduce the 
risk of injury." 

What kind of exercises should 
yotl do to help get in shape lor ski- 



An aerobic exercise program "1 
at least 20 minuies three limes a 
week is a good start, he said. 
"Running, biking and the 5 



well," Gang said. 

A strengthening program i 
equally imporiant said Gang, / 
strengthening program twice ; 
week, on the days one doesii'i d< 
aerobic exercises, could consist o 
exercises such its squats, leg press- 
es, hamstring curls, knee extension. 
and calf raises. 

Another important aspect of 
one's exercise program should be 
stretching. ■'Stretching should be 
done after you exercise when your 
body and muscles are warm.' said 

Gang. "Hold each stretch for 15 to 

10 seconds and do uol bounce." 
ln-shape skiers, however, can 

shll be susceptible to injury if ilieir 
equipment is not in proper working 
condition II yom skis have not been 
used for awhile it would be wise to 
lake them to a ski shop and have 
them professionally tuned The ski 
shop will make sure your bindings 
are working properly. 

Gang also said some people may 
wani to consider investing in a hel- 
met, "Motorcyclists, bikers, and 
rollerbladers all wear helmets, so 
why shouldn't you wear a helmet in 
a sport in which you can routinely 
exceed 40 mph." 

Preventing injury on the 
slope 

Arriving al the ski area, a proper 

warm-up will help plcv. jinv l>\ 

increasing the blood flow to the 
muscles and warming the tissue. 

"Before you start skiing.' Gang 
said, '"jog up and down some steps a 
couple times or perform some deep 
knee bends for a couple minutes. 
Also take it easy for the first run or 
two as pari of your warm-up, and lo 
allow you lo see what the snow con- 




ditions are like." 

In skiing, knee injuries are more 
feared than fractured bones Injury 
to the anterior cruciaic ligament, in 
Ihe knee often occurs in backward 
twisting falls. In this case, the boots 
are forcing Ihe lower leg forward 
while the body is falling backward 
and twisting with the hips which are 
often lower ihen ihe knees. "When 
you sense that you arc entering a 
wihici.ihk pusiiiiHi like Mils insle.id 
of trying to save your dignity .md 
avoid a fall," Gang said, "it is often 
belter lo bail out." 

Incidentally, many ski areas have 
or are in die process of educating ski 
patrol on the types of situations 
which cause knee injuries and as a 
resull have seen a 60 percent 
decrease in I lie. number ol knee 



injuries. Gang said. 

A final bu( important piece of 
advice Gang gives for preventing 
injury is lo slay within your skiing 
limns. "Know what your skill level 
is and don't try doing something 
stupid just because you saw it on 
Warren Miller. And when you start 
leehng fatigued, slow down a little . 
h's often trie last run of the day thai 
ends up pulling you in the hospital" 

If you are skiing in high ah nudes. 
Phil Garver, chair of the physical 
education department, said drinking 
plenty of liquids and gelling proper- 
sleep can help prevent altitude sick- 
ness as well as injury.

Mountain bikers conquer Signal Mountain 



By Heidi Hodson 



"You're supposed In go around 
Ihem. not run inlo ihem." I holler 
over my shoulder. The incident 
thai elicits this response is the 
unmistakable grind and squeak of 
wet brakes with the concurrent 
"uargh— a TREE!" Come lo find 
out, Todd DID manage lo maneu- 
ver around the tree— only to land 
milliseconds later m die midst of a 
hi iai patch Quite uncomfortable 
to say the least However, a few 
minuies later, an only slightly 
scathed Todd is racing down the 
lulled trail, grinning from ear lo ear 
while llecks of mud splatter on his 
face and teeth He probably would 
have had as hard a time remember- 
ing ihe briar patch as he would 
recalling who had attended his firsi 
birthday parly, 

I can hear Amy behind me 
shouting, "Hey, we don'l allow 
brakes on this hill " Sorry Amy, 
ft but I'd like to avoid becoming a 
mangled mass ol aluminum and 
body parts with lire spokes flossing 
my leeth. In retrospect though, the 
mangled mass experiences are 
often ihe fondest memories of the 
common mountain biker (M. 
Tundras Pedalous), 

Being a relatively new mountain 
biker 1 1 started this past summer), I 
am forever learning new things. 
Thank goodness lhal the new 
things I'm learning are not ALL 
from personal experience. Take, 
for instance, this last trip which 
further reinforces in my brain lhal 
helmets are inherently good things 
My friend Dref (I've altered the 
name to avoid any c 
thai might come from being c 

to me at the beginning of our ride 
thai he couldn't understand how 1 
could possibly survive without eli- 
pless pedals (apparali which con- 
nect your shoes lo your bike ped- 
als). It mighl help to inform die 
readers that Dref has been using 
clipless pedals for going on ten 
years, during which he has been 



been. Consequently. I'lrcl managed 
to maintain perfect hiker pose for 
almost Ihe entire trip — although 
several nines he assumed a horiz- 
ontal rather than the traditional ver- 
tical position. This was particular- 



it bik- 



mosily a roadie I road hiker) v 

ing. II mighl also be helpful ti 
mention that MOST clipless pedals 
have an important feature that we 

Unfortunately, the quick release 
features on Drels pedals were not 
quiic as frisky as they could have 



hori/onialiiy happened lo be in a 
mud puddle. The helmel came in 
quite li.unK for Dref when he got 
horizontal on a rock bed. There 
are lew livings quiic as funny as 
watching a biker come to a dramat- 
ic stop, wriggle his ankle desper- 
ately trying to activate ihe quick 
release, and then slowly bill solidly 
flip over on his side— feel securely 
fastened to the pedals It lends 10 
visions ol cow-lipping on the wide 
open ranges ol Montana. I could- 
n't help hul kid Orel by asking bun 
how he could possibly survive bik- 
ing WITH clipless pedals. 

I've learned many other things 
about mountain biking as well. 
Never attempt lo ride through a 
mud puddle lhal has fine black dm 
around its edges unless you WANT 
to gel stuck in the middle where 
you have sunk pasl your hubs and 
the only option is lo carry your 
bike while you slosh to die other 
side— hoping against hope thai 
quicksand is not indigenous t( 



downhill slope lhal is covered with 
lallen leaves still shiny from an 
afternoon rain- -in lacl, if you even 
ATTEMPT to slop on this terrain, 
yon are likely to find yourself in 
positions lhal you never dreamed 
could be possible without breaking 
al leasi one bone. Another thing 
I've learned is lhal your brakes can 
be your friend when they are used 
correctly. They help lo keep you 
on die more favorable side of ihe 
line line between sheer ecstasy and 
being scared spilless. 

So, you might ask, what is so 
greal about mountain biking'' ll is 
quite an accomplishment knowing 
that the power needed to propel 
your bike up a sleep hill or down a 
slope comes from a combination of 
your body working with or aeainsi 
the law of gravity (both of which, 
of course, are provided by ihe Big 
Man Upstairs, as my dad likes ui" 
refer to Him). There is no engine 
or gasoline involved No shortcuts. 
Your body determines how far and 
how fast you will go. Mountain 
biking is the integration of quick

Study: In-line 
skating better 
aerobic exercise 
than running, 
cycling 



In-line skating has recently taken 
off with an estimated 1.5 million 
aggressive skaters, not counting the 
even day skaters between the ages 
of 6 and 17 years old. People realize 
lhal in-line skating is an enjoyable 
sport, bul what most people don'l 
know is that it can be better for them 
ihan running, biking, and swim- 

A study by Ihe University of 

Massachusetts Exercise Science 
Department has found that in-line 
skating at normal speeds compares 
aerobically lo running, cycling and 
swimming and far outweighs the 
aerobic benefits of stair stepping 
exercises For example, a person 
weighing 150 pounds can burn 
approximately 360 calories in a 30- 
minuie workout at average speeds. 

Results of the siudy report that 
the iiiusJes work for a longer peri- 
od of time during an in-line skating 
stride dvan in a running stride or 
cycling crank cycle. The study also 
found thai in-line skating effective- 
ly works the major targel areas of 
the lower body that many people 
wain to train and lone, without pro- 
ducing harmful jarring impacts on 
the body. 

Researchers reported that in-line 
skating has higher muscle activity 
levels for some muscles of the hips, 
thighs d inj shins ihan running or 
cycling. They conclude that the 
increased muscle usage may be due 
to the weight and design of the in- 
line skate. 

There are many other benefits lo 
exercising with rollerblades rather 
than running. In-line skating causes 
only half the impact shock of a 
comparative running workout, and 
because il is a lower impact Sport, it 
is less hannlul on Ihe participants in 
the long run. Also, repeated high 
impact workouts have been associ- 
ated with degenerative joint disease 



and injuries such s 

and even lower back pain-

are equivalent to mc

The world according to student bloopers 



One of ihe fringe bencfiis of being an 
English or History teacher is receiving the 

t)<.-c:tsiona! jewel of a student blooper in an 
essay. I have patched together the follow- 
ing "history" of the world from certifiably 
genuine student bloopers collected by 
teachers throughout the United States, from 
eighth grade through college level. Read 
carefully, and you will learn a lot, 

The inhabitants of ancient Egypt were 
called mummies. They lived in the Sarah

They also had myths. A myth is a female 
moth. One myth says thai the mother of 
Achilles dipped him in the River Stynx 
until he became intolerable. 
Achilles appears in The Iliad, by Homer. 
Homer also wrote The Oddity, in which 
Penelope was Ihe last hardship that Ulysses 
endured on his journey. Actually. Homer 
was noi writlen by Homer but by another 
man of that same name. 

Socrates was a famous Greek teacher 
who went around giving people advice. 
They killed him. Socrates died from an 
overdose of wedlock. 

In the Olympic games, Greeks ran races, 
jumped, hurled the biscuits, and threw the 
Java. The reward to the victor was a coral 
wreath. The government of Athens was 
democratic because people took the law 
into their own hands. There were no wars 
in Greece, as the mountains were so high 
thai they couldn'l climb over to see what 
their neighbors were doing. When they 
fought with the Persians, the Greeks were 
outnumbered because ihe Persians had

very long. Ai Roman banquets, ihe guests 
wore garlics in their hair. Julius Caesar 
extinguished himself on the batdefields of 
Gaul. The Ides of March murdered him 
because they thought he was going lo be 
made king. Nero was a cruel tyranny who 
would lorture his poor subjects by playing 
Ihe fiddle to ihem. 

Then came the middle ages. King 
Alfred conquered the Dames, King Arthur 
lived in the Age of Shivery, King Harold 
mustarded his troops before the Battle of 
Hastings, and Joan of Arc was canonized 
by Bernard Shaw. Finally, the Magna Cai 
provided t'

e for Ihe same offense. 



In midevil times most of the people 
were alliterate. The greatest writer of the 
time was Chaucer, who wrote many poems 
and verses and also wrote literature. 
Another tale tells of William Tell, who shot 
an arrow through an apple while standing 
on his son's head. 

The Renaissance was an age in which 
more individuals felt the value of their 
human being. Martin Luther was nailed to 
the church door at Wittenberg for selling 
papal indulgences. He died a horrible 
deaih, being excommunicated by a bull. It 
was an age of great inventions and discov- 
eries. Most prominently, Gutenberg invent- 
ed the Bible. 

The government of England was a limit- 
ed mockery. Henry VIII found walking dif- 
ficult because he had an abyss on his knee. 
Queen Elizabeth was the Queen. As a 
queen she was a success. Then her navy 
went out and defeated the Spanish 
Armadillo. 

The grealcst writer of the Renaissance 
was William Shakespear. Shakcspear never 
made much money and is famous only 
because of his plays. He lived at Windsor 
with his merry wives, writing tragedies, 
comedies, and errors. Romeo and Juliet are 
an example of a heroic couplet. Writing at 
the same time as Shakespear was Miguel 
Cervantes. He wrole Donkey Hote. The 
nexl great author was John Milton. Milton 
wrole Paradise Lost. Then his wife died 
and he wrote Paradise Regained. 

During the Renaissance America began. 
Christopher Columbus was a great naviga- 
tor who discovered America while cursing 
about the Atlantic. His ships were called 
the Nina, the Pinla, and the Santa Fe. 
Later, the Pilgrims crossed the ocean, and 
this was known as Pilgrims Progress. When 
they landed at Plymouth Rock, they were 
greeted by the Indians, who came down the 
hill rolling their war hoops before them. 



The Indian squabs carried porpoises on 
their back. Many of the Indian heroes were 
killed, along with their cabooses, which 
proved very fatal to them. The winter of 
1620 was a hard one for ihe settlers. Many 
people died and many babies were born. 
Captain John Smith was responsible for all 

One of the causes of the Revolutionary 
War was the English put tacks in the tea. 
Also, the colonists would send their parcels 
through the post without stamps. During 
the War, the Red Coats and Paul Revere 
was throwing balls over stone walls. The 
dogs were barking and the peacocks crow- 
ing. Finally, the colonists won the War and 
no longer had to pay for taxis. 

Delegates from the original thirteen 
slates formed the Contented Congress. 
Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin 
were two singers of the Declaration of 
Independence. Franklin had gone lo 
Boston carrying all his clothes in his pocket 
and a loaf of bread under each arm. He 
invented electricity by rubbing cats back- 
wards and declared, "A horse divided 
against itself cannot sland". Franklin died 
in 1790 and is still dead. 

George Washington married Martha 
Curtis and in due time became the Father of 
our Country. Then the Constitution of the 
United States was adopted to secure 
domestic hostility. Under the Constitution 
Ihe people enjoyed the right to keep bare 

Abraham Lincoln became America's 
greatest precedent. Lincoln's mother died 
in infancy, and he was bom in a log cabin 
which he built with his own hands. When 
Lincoln was President, he wore only a tall 
silk hat. Abraham Lincoln wrote the 
Gettysburg Address while traveling from 
Washington to Gettysburg on the back of

The sun never set on the British EmrjJ

lo get a napkin from the dispenser 
when your hand brushed againsl 
hers, and Ihen your eyes mei. ' 
Wait, thai was Mrs. Blanco's hand, 
that probably wasn't a signal. 

So maybe the situation you are 
thinking of wasn't very dramatic. 
Maybe it wasn't really all that 
exceptional, but you still find your 
self wondering it that special per- 
son was trying to send you a mes- 
sage. When your situation hap- 
pened, there were many factors that 
could have interfered with your

So, does "the signal" actually 
exisi? Is there truly an unspoken 
set of rules and silent actions that 
allow a person to clue-in a member 
of the opposite sex? Can you real- 
ly say. "1 am interested in you" 
with ,i prolonged glance, or a subtle 
gesture? In a word — NO. 
Unless you are speaking of the 
radio signal, the baseball umpire's 
signal, or Ihe turn signal, "the signal" is 
complete nonsense! You know as well as 1 
do that males and females can barely say to 



each other "please pass the salt" and know 
what the other is saying. It seems a glori- 
ous idea to think that modem society is so 
advanced that spoken language is virtually 
obsolete. It would be nice to think that 
males and females are so in tune with each 
other — so in connection with one another's 
thoughts and feelings that "looks" and 
"gestures" would suffice to convey our 
most private thoughts. 

So where does that leave the modem 
male and female in tt

SALARIES 



What do your SA officers get paid? 



adequate ." 

Wetmore disagrees with the system in 
place at Southern to pay its leaders. '"I think 
the school should reward its student leaders 
the way they like to reward students who 
perform well academically" This. Wetmore 
adds, could come in the form of tuition 
vouchers or scholarships. 

'The thing that bothers me the most is 
that Southern docs not reward its leaders at 
all," added Wetmore. Southern's student 
leaders get paid from SA budget, and, to 
Wetmore, that means having "one less 
social." 

Here at Southern, Bill Wohlers, vice 
president for student services and SA spon- 
sor, said the current system is adequate and 



Other student government presidents 
agree their pay is not adequate for the 
amount of work they do. They all, however, 
said they art' no! in il for the money. 

"Obviously at S2.50 an hour I'm not 
doing tt for the money." said Kaleb 
Cockrum Andrews University Student 
Association president whose stipend is 
about $2000. "Working for any student 
association is a product of love and duly." 

Brett Schlisner, Union College's SA 
president, agrees. "The S 1000 stipend is not 
adequate for the work required, but that's 
okay [because) 1 see il as more of a ministry

Cockrum admits "money may be the root 
of all evil, but it is also ihe foundation of 
Advcntis. education." 

If a sludent wants an Adventist education 
they must pay ihe price or go somewhere 
else. Cockrum said, and he sees sludent gov- 
ernment stipends as a way to allow officers 
lo continue Christian education and to 
develop leadership skills.

Allison Miller, student government pres- 
ident at the University of Iowa, said her 
$600 a month stipend works oul to be "way 
way under minimum wage." The job was so 
lime consuming she was forced to quit

Just like at many Adventist colleges, 
Miller didn'l take her job for ihe money. "I 
would be suspicious of anyone who takes 
this job for the money," she said. "I don't

Jonathan Brill, the highest paid sludent

he said, "It's been tremendously beneficial. 
If I didn't get paid. I'd have to gel another 
job, and I wouldn't have the time to commit 
to this one." 

Butch Oxendine, a former student gov- 
ernment leader and publisher of Student 
Leader Magazine, said sludent leaders 
shouldn't be viewed any differently than 
athletes or scholars" who often receive 

Pay, he said, would enable students from 
a wide variety of backgrounds to participate

The Opinion Pages 



Television sets in dorms 

Imagine the d;iy when televisions would he allowed in dorm rooms here 
at Southern. What would people think.' Would they think the world is 
coming to an end? Allowing students io have television sets in their 
dorm rooms would not be the end of the world, but it would allow stu- 
dents a chance to slay informed, entertained, and learned. 

Televisions themselves are not evil— mosi fatuity and students have 
them at home — and just like i 

news programs mi thannt-ls of their choice. They would not have Io be 
subjected to the same old monotony of CNN Headline News. For exam- 
ple, students would he able in watch I he morning news as they get ready 
for school, check that day's weather, or check the previous night's scores 

Furthermore, allowing televisions wuuld keep people entertained when 
there is often a luck of it on campus. It would allow another option to the 
ritual of Friday afternoons at the movies or another option to the shut 
down campus. 

Everyone has their own tasie in whal ihey like to watch on television. 
Instead of being forced to follow a TV schedule they could dictate to 
themselves what to watch— or at least fighi it oui with their roommate. 

More important I v, allowing televisions v. on Id provide another learning 
resource available to students 1-or example, it is valuable for broadcasting 
students to watch local TV news This enables them to see what their 
future jobs might he like It allows them to learn from watching profes- 
sionals, Bui where are ihey to do this when the only televisions on campus 
are dictated by a rigid schedule? 

The opponents to such a proposition may say televisions should not be 
allowed because they are a waste of lime and there is nothing but trash on 
) them. These reasons are definitely valid That television is a waste of time 
and thai it is filled with trash is a sad fact, but it is not so, when television 
is viewed responsibly Jusi like everythuir else from e.iimg to the internet 
dangers can be found. 

The latter is a perfect example. The internet is a vital part of this cam- 
pus but also a great danger The intemel can be far more addictive than 
television. There is more smut, sleaze, and other Hash on the internet than 
one could possibly find on the television we would see here. But yet, no 
one is about to lake away such a valuable learning tool. Just imagine no 
email and no online research fhey are, however, keeping another valid 
and important learning resource horn us by not allowing televisions in 

e neglected the opportunity to watch the evening news, 
a Discovery channel feature, 

When committee lime comes to address such an ismic the pros far out- 
weigh the oons. 

And if they don't believe so, they should find out who is making the 
most innovated leehnologk.il advancements on the internet — pornography.

Letters to the Editor 



A small clarification 

This is in response to your edito- 
rial about Senate resignations 
(January 22, 1998). Once again, I 
would like to congratulate the 
Accent on its excellent reporting 
thi' year, especially in regards to 
■ lutlciii government. However, 
lliere are a few points | would like 

Near the end of your editorial, 
you mentioned that "Thirteen total 
resignation-, is st.iyyering," There 
have been only seven total Senate 
resignations tins year. It was not 
clear from the context that the num- 
ber 1 3 referred to the Student 
Association as a whole, as it did. 
Neve nhe less, the Accent's original 
point that seven resignations are 
way too many remains intact. 

in olficc because you made a com- 



I agree completely, but sched- 
ule- and class loads can vary drasti- 
cally from semester to semester, 
and sometimes we all have lapses 
in judgement. I, for one, have more 
respect lor senators whose dedica- 
tion to representing their con- 
stituents is such ilia! they choose to 
resign when faced with the fact thai 
lliey may not be able to adequately 



We are currently searching for

the desire io assume the responsi- 
bilities of being a senator. We have

Two cents on Titanic' 

I am writing to you in regards io 
the letter that Mr. Beckett wrote 
about the 'Titanic' review. 

First of all, the rule in the hand- 
book about students going to the- 
aters is older than all of the build- 
ings here. The only reason that it 
exists is because Ellen While disap- 
proved of theater attendance in her 
day. The theaters in her lime were 
really jusi saloons with a stage. I 
wouldn't expect that to be approved 
by anyone either. 

Things are different now. And 
Beckett said that he would like to 
see the critic review how different 
parts of the movie affect Christians 
and the different Christian aspects 
of the film. Well, I am sorry to burst 
his bubble, but that would make for 
a very short movie review. 



, The sad truth is that \ 
crude world that doesn't 
dominantly Christian infilled

The Student Voice of SAU 



There is a group of students who 
oie required to officiate intramural 
basketball games These students 
are physical education majors or 
minors in officiating class. They 
have six weeks during the season to 
become competent and so a crash 
course is pressed upon them. 

This semester they have had live 
"tlk-iaiing classes as ol January 22. 
During that time they have literally 
gone through the entire handbook 
and taken a written test with 100 
questions. Not only did ihey have to 
come up with the correct answers 
but they also had to write down 
exactly where the answer was found 
(rule, section, and article). They 
have had lab sessions on officiatine 
procedure, court coverage, and coor- 
dination with fellow officials. They 
have had to learn hand signals and 
the proper way to use them and 
when. They have been taught offici- 
ating philosophy. They have 
watched two hhns ,,hout the most 
difficult culls in basketball— the 
Mod -me-chargiiig situation and 
traveling. 

In addition, these students are 
rcqunej to observe games, keep the 
"Iticul score book, and score hoard 
■ianne the first week of the season 
In Aoek two they are expected to 
bceui oiliciatmy games. They now 
have to remember dozens of viola- 
lH>ns ilui can occur. They will lind 
dial ilns non-contact sponluisphvs-

I'm average 

1 am average. 

Not brilliantly average or even pathetically average. Just 
plain old average-average. 

1 do a lot or different things very so-so. 

1 play a Ml tic piano, a Mule tambounne. 1 can sing a Ming 
hut I definitely won't bring tears to your eyes or goosebumps 
in ymir arms-and usually it's along with the radio. I've 
baked a Mule. . . but mostly just those cookies squeezed out 
of the long plastic tube bought at my local grocers. 



si vear at the Valentine's banquet and ,1 blue ribbon from 
ie 4-1 1 fair when I was 9 for my Rice Krispy Treats and I 
link that was a fluke. . . how can one plate of Rice Krispy 
reals really be that much belter man the next? 
Yep. Mediocre. Thai's me. 

And the problem is I'm not quite 
ow I became that way. 
I always had high dreams. I 
always imagined grand accomplishments 
and medals and honors and speaking 
engagements. I always thought 1 would 
be fabulous and deserving of praise, but 
I'm beginning to realize, ever- so-painful - 
ly, that that's just not going to happen. 

I don't have "it." I don't have the

think about what I could write a book on. . .you know, so 1 
could live off of the royalties and wouldn't have to get a 
"real job," But then those two women wrote that "RULES" 
book and slole my idea so I was left with nothing, 

I used to be proud and, I really hate to admit this, but 
maybe even a little cocky about my writing. 

I thought, yeah, sure. I could be syndicated. Why not'.' 
Hut thai was Ik- fore I tool, an upper division writing class 
and realized thai 1 am a nothing. That my short sentences 
and made up words are stupid arid I need to eel a real topic

I'euple who crank out Iwo bunks a month. Artists who have 
been writing since they were four. There are students that 
we pass in ihc hall everyday Unit write eloquent lines and 
encourage intense thought. 

And then 1 tell embarrassed. Embarrassed that I'd ever 
printed anything in die paper for the whole school to read. . 
I realize that not THAT many people read my column but 
still. ,1 fell embarrassed lor ever thinking that I was funny 
or clever, I hat I bud a moving point ot swayed opinions. I 
felt embarrassed tor my pulled up aliunde Embarrassed 
because I was but a measly wild clovei in the prairie of life.

Mere 1 sit wishing I had taken thai leap of adventure and

Alone in the storm 



By Jennifer Artigas 



wandered around the city, taking the 
wrong exits a few times before I finally 
found the one 1 was looking for. I soon 
located my destination— Pension 
Paula, a "cheap and friendly pension in 
the hills," according to the Europe '96 
Berkeley Guide. 1 wearily walked to 



all loo predictable response, ' H 
rooms." Dejectedly, I got back 
car and started for Steyr. 

As I drove, night was falling and 
was gelling colder The heater was 
blasting the rain came down harder 
and harder. I had illy headlights on 
blight as they would shine, and the 



fought with the unrelenting elements. And 
then I began to pray. "Dear God," I said 
aloud, "please, PLEASE help me get 
through this storm. 



I glanced al my watch as ihe light, 
summer alpine bree/e bleu in through 
the window. One o'clock. I should 
have plenty of lime to make it to 
Innsbruck, Austria, where 1 planned to 
spend the night.

Seeing a gas station up ahead, I 
turned oil Ihe mam road My ear need- 
ed hiding up almost as badly I did. 
Thirty-five Swiss f-nmes and both my 
litde silver Peugeot's tank and my 
lummy were full. 

As I resumed my climb up the 
Swiss Alps. I listened lo music and 
enjoyed ihe bieathiakuig scenery (more 
descriptive here) As I drove. Ilic road 
not only got steeper and steeper, but 
also more narrow. A lew tunes 1 had lo 
downshift to second just to inch my 
way up an especially sleep pass: I won- 
dered if I'd make it to the lop. When I 

finally did. I let oui a sigh of relief and 

started (Me long, winding trek down, 

passing hikers and cyclists on the way. 
I spotted many patches of snow by 

the road; it was certainly cold up 

here— a lot colder than ihe warm const 

of France I'd been lolling aboui in ihe 

pasi tew .lays' But it was beautiful 

here, quietly peaceful, and so seeming- 
ly unaffected by civilization. Any 

moment 1 expected to see Johanna 

Spyn's Heidi and Peter leading the 

goats back to ihe Uncle's little hut, 

yodduig all the way. 

A few hours later 1 was nearing 

Innsbruck I was truly c\Mausied"since

sleepy. It was already past eight and I singing. A Bible 

had at least three more hours to drive 

to reach Steyr. Between the torrents of 

rain and the windows fogging up, I 

could barely see out the window. 
And then, it began to hail — not just 

little bits of ice pelting randomly, but 

big ice cubes that threatened to break 

ihe windshield. I was forced lo drive 

slower and slower; the speedometer 

registered a mere 211 kilometers. Just 

when I thought things couldn't get 

worse', the wind picked up. Gusts blew 

my little car from side to side of my 

lane, and then onto the others. I drove 

even slower, but it didn't help. The 

bail came down even harder and the 

wind nearly blew my ear entirely off 

the road onio who knows what because 

I couldn't see past my windshield! 
I started to get scared, and panicky 

thoughts darted through my mind as I 

fought with the unrelenting elements. 



cr "Oh well," I dioughl sli»hM\ disap-

As I got into my car. it started to

A tribute to a fellow student 







» £&;*<i0 



It's been two years but 
Allison's memory, her 
light-heartedness, her 
zest, remains fresh in the 
hearts of those who not 
only knew and loved her, 
but those who were also 
inspired by her. Inspired 
by her rich life, her 
encompassing love, her 
focused ambition, her 
twinkling laughter, her 
easy acceptance. 

She left impressions on 
our hearts and songs in 
our souls to be young and 
free and crazy and fun. 
She encouraged the best 
and captured the spirit of 
college-life, close friends, 
and cherished family. 

Allison R. Titus will not 
be forgotten. 

How could she be?

The Opinion Pages 






Sliding through zippergate 

Zippcrgate, fomigatc. Lewinskygalc. You name il and the current scan- 
ihl lonxk the White House h.islwiiL-alk'd H.Hk' alligations thai 
IT.siiIliiI Clinton had an affair with a 2 I -year-old While House intern and 
thenui-edhei lo lie nhonl it are ihe most serious ol his presidency. But 
like the" re. i. he will weather ihroiiL'h the storm Hal what it these allega- 
tions are true? Is the president's private life any of our business? 

The latter, contrary t" what many people think, is not the key issue with 
these allegations II line, the president did nothing illegal hy having an 
alt.nr wiih Monica I cwmsW— although an affair with someone who is a 
only lew years older than your own daughter does raise a lew eyebrows. 
The issue" with these allegations is whether or not the president (old 
Lewinsky lo lie under oath about the alleged affair. 
' This is illegal. 

If these allegations are true this means perjury and obstruction oljus- 
e— two charges that could brine impeachment proceedings. 
The only Option for the president it the charge-, arc proved true is to 
>ign. No president is above the law. Richard Nixon found thai out. Will 
II Clinton find out 100? 

which is headed h\ Whticwaici independent counsel 
testimony from Lewinsky if it is going to find the 
use her tilth amendment riehl if she dues not gel 

,ii v ,hc is the one that allegedly lined under oath, 

ion> is the kev element in this investigation, however. 
... leaning in favor of her side of the story over ihe 
president's. 

For example, the A', -w York lhnr> reported on lucsday that White 
House records show I cwmskv making three do/eu visits to the While 
House alter she was removed from there for work at the Pentagon. 
Another piece of evidence is the dress that the president allegedly bought 
Lewinsky. Why did she visit the While House'.' What did she do there? 
And why is the president buying a low-level intern a dress? All this evi- 
dence seems insurmountable lor Ihe president, but what he has mi his side 
is the luxury of denial He can deny everything and that is what has been 
done — since nothing has been proved true. 

On the sexual end ot the scandal no illegal actiuh went on tl the 
allceed affair is true Immoral activity did, however, occur if these allega- 
tions are true Supporters of the president will say his private life is none 
ol our business and it is not an issue, bui let's face Ihe facts— whether we 
like it or not it is an issue. Here's why? 



Ken Star, i 



Bill Clinton has proved to lu an ellcelive leader in regards to foreign 
id dome sin policy, but not an et lee live role model. 
What do kids think u In n ilu \ lieu about Ins sexual escapades in the 
lot? What do kills think when they find out ihcir 
■n lhc\ .m supposed to look up to. experimented 
ikes it seem okay for (hem to do it. Poor role mod- 
nlal to America's youth than almost anything else. 
: latest in a series of scandals which, if proved true, 
could mean an end lo a presidency. 

Kui more than likely, the ptesidenl will live up to his nickname ol Slick 
Willy and slide right on past this scandal— virtually unharmed. 



White House— 11 
president, one of 
with illegal drug: 
els arc far more.

Quotes for the week 

"Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and 
moral questions of our time; the need for man to over- 
come oppression and violence without resorting to oppres- 
sion and violence. Man must evolve for all human conflict 
a method which rejects revenue, aggression and retalia- 
tion. The foundation of such a method is love." 



"If a man is a fool the hest thing to do is to encourage him 
to advertise the fact by speaking." 



"Leave the matter of religion in the family altar, the 
church, and the private school, supported entirely by pri- 
vate contributions. Keep the church and the State forever 
separate."

Century 21 theater 



By Gordon Bietz 



"Welcome to Century 21 Theater. We have 
here an example of the completely new genera- 
tion of theaters. This is ultimate theater. This 
state-of-the-art experience you are about to have 
is the result iif ,1 quantum k.ip in teelinology. 
hn tin-, e\perieiis.e we h.i.c used .idvjjKes in the 
lidiK ol micro cleans w,i\l' transmission, com- 
pute i yr.tplm. ye minion, mapping of the brain, 
and virtual reality. 

"Some ol you may lx ukl enough lo remem- 
Kt the theaters hack in ihe latter pad of the 
twentieth century. At that time they used what 
was ,,illed a silver screen' to project pictures on. 
I hat ieclino!.jg\ w.is wry similar to what was 
JniH .lunuc the Stone Age—drawing picture;, on 
the walls of caves. 

"As you know theaters of that type have been 
obsolete for many years now. If you would like 
lo see one such theater you may sec it at the 
Sinilhsunun. Ot course, today projecting pic- 
lures on walls has been made obsolete by the 
Interactive Tethtuier.iphii. Mind Imager Today 
. i your eyes and go directly to voiir 



most advanced ol the Interactive lechnographic 
Mind Imager- Ii lias been integrated with the 
most powerful of the new generation of super 
computers thai allows tor greater depth of virtual 
image interactive \ tewing. But enough of intro- 
duction. If everyone would lake their seats. 






"What we have in Century 



1 Theate 



With those words you move to seats in the 
auditorium. They are comfortable and roomy, 
each seat separated from the others by a couple 
ol leet. Thai is so when you become deeply 
involved in the movie you don't unintentionally 
him tin. person nevt to you. Each seat has a spe- 
cial headrest and attached to the headrest is a 
device similar to a hairdryer, that fits over the 
head All are given earplugs thai completely 
eliminated anv sound thai might distract you. 
All the lights in the building are turned out and 
the theater is as dark as the deepest cave. 

The ushers make sure each person's shoulder 
harness and seat belt arc firmly attached. Once 
each person is positioned and has their headset 
on you again hear ihe voice ol guide. You don't 
exactly hear his voice: you just know what he is 
s-oinmuniealing. |,,r |m message comes, not 
through the vibration ot" sound waves that move 



your eardrum, but through the direct electron^ 
impulses of the Interactive Technographic MijP 
Imagers attached to your heads. 

You experience the voice say _ 
now prepared for a theater experience ihatyal 
will never forget. It will change your life. Wf 
encourage you to identify with one of the el 
acters in the plot. The first five m 
give you a rundown on the characters, and yrtj 
may choose one of them." 

The movie is a basic murder mystery- si 
chose to be the hero. After the selection of tbj| 
character the movie — or, to be mo 
the experience begins. 

It is an incredible experience! '_ 
seeing a picture out there in front of you; "W 
not even like a Disney world three-D muvifcjB 
are there on the street comer in San FranetsOM 
You are the hero. It is like a dream, but you J 
pinch yourself and you are awake. The wn« | 
blows trash down the street. The "Ley « «£■ 
beside you, and it is foggy and cold. w» *J 
some menacing thing in the alley and tun ■"■
