ihe Student Council Political 
Committee has revised their 
fwmer constitution The "neiA- 
constitution" is not really the 
correct name for it. it is more like 
a mass amendment The Student 
Council's name will be changed 
to the Student Government 
-Association The main reason for 
this change is that the state 
organization Tennessee Student 
Council is outdated. 

Other changes that the Student 
Government will make is to bring 
election and impeachment 
proceedings up to date 

The Student Council is trying 
various ways to get the student 
involved One idea they have is to 
conduct Open Encounter sessions 
wiih the Board Members. This 
would enable students who have 
questions lo con/ron( (he board. 
Dan PummiH reminds us that 
Ihe executive elections will be 
held in April. He would like to see 
experienced sludenis take on 
these positions

Phyllis Dampier Fontaine, a 
former Milligan student and 
ET.S.U. graduate, joined the 
Milligan College administration 
as registrar in 1963. In 1972 she 
acquired the position of Assistant 
Dean of Students. 

Upon observation of the 
registrar's office, one concludes 
that more than scheduling 
processes are supervised by Mrs, 

As soon as a student is accepted 
at Milligan, all of his high school 
records are transferred to the 
registrar's office The bulk of the 
pre-entrance material, including 
room assignments are handled 

All Fall, Spring, and Summer 
class scheduling must be worked 
out by Mrs Fontaine and her 
staff. In addition. Mrs Fontaine 
has served as chairperson for the 
college catalogue committee 

Mrs. Fontaine confers with 
every senior to check credits and 
finalize graduation for the 
student. If the graduate is ac- 
cepted in a position requiring 
transcripts, these are mailed out 
of the registrar's office. 

One of the most demanding 
tasks to deal with as registrar is 
the handling of Governmental 
reports These include detailed 
forms from the Department of 
Health, Education and Welfare,

over all Milligan dorms. When 
iisked if social problems with 
siuden!5 have changed. Mrs, 
Fontaine replied. "I think there is 
a general change in student at- 
titudes, Perhaps this is due to the 
relaxed women's curfew this 
school year which has relieved 
some past tension." 

In addition to her Milligan 
duties. Mrs. Fontaine is presently 
serving as secretary of the 
Southern Association of 
Registrars and College Ad- 
ministration Offices This 
position has provided Mrs 
Fontaine with many enjoyable

Fontaine include membership in 
Hopwood Church, reading and 
knitting. She is especially a 
drama buff and prefers viewing 
the national companies per- 
forming at U.T,, Knoxville.

Casals plays peace 



Many Milligiin -iludenls 
possess the mistaken jjiipressifin 
thai the sludy of humamlics is Ihe 
study of aniiqualed an. events, 
and people The humanities, 
however, are alive and well, even 
in thelwenlielh eenlury Perhaps 
more than ever before, in- 
dividuals are developing thoir 
creative genius and embodying 
Ihe humanistic ideal 

P.nhloCasals lived such a life — 
a life that epitomized the 
humanities He tells his siorv in 
narrated autobiography com- 
piled bv Albert V. Knhn TasaK' 
autobiography did not 
appear early in his life, but when 
he was ninety-three years old 
"But age is a relative matter," he 
says, "If you continue to work 
and to absorb Ihe beauty in the 
world about you, you find that 
age does not necessarily mean 
getting old , , I feel many things 
more intensely than ever before, 
and for me life grows more 

Casals' fascination with life 
began in his boyhood home of 
Catalonia, a region in northeast 
Spain There he learned to love 
the sea. and there he learned lo 
love music. Casals' father played 
organ, gave prano and voice 
lessons, and composed music 
Indeed, music surrounded Pablo 
from his earliest childhood He 
began playing piano when he was 
four, and was playing violin by 
age seven. 
Not until he was eleven did 

Pablo hear a cello. He remem- 
bers il in JOYS AND SORROWS 
as an ecstatic occasion '"Froni 
the moment I heard the first 
notes I was overwhelmed, I felt 
as if 1 could not breathe There 
was something so tender, 
beautiful and human — yes. so 
very human — about the sound I 
had never heard such a beautiful 
sound before, A radiance filled 

That moment marked the 
beginning of a monumental 
career which ultimately led to 
Casals* fame as the world's 
greatest cellist Yet. this renown 
did not come overnight In fact. 
Pablo's parents seriously 
disagreed about his future His 
father, although a musician, 
wanted Pablo to become a car- 
penter His mother, however. 
insisted that Pablo had a special 
gift and thai everything should be 
done to nourish it. Her deter- 
mination finally won. and Pablo 
began studying ihc cello in 

Casals first studied in Bar- 
celona, and during his stay there 
he performed in cafes In 189-1. 
when he was seventeen, he went 
to Madrid to study at the Madrid 
Conservatory of Music Before 
long he met the royal family, and 
thenext year he received his first 
decoration from Queen Maria 
Cristina As Casals' ability in- 
creased, his reputation grew 
also. Although he encountered 
many discouraging moments 
during those earlv vears of his 

Miliigan 1975 has much lo offer 

Students here have many opportunities lo gel 
involved in clubs, activities, sports and community 
projects. On an individual level it is a matter of just 
that: getting involved. 

This school year the Civineltes have been doing a 
good job of involving students via two campus 
variety shows. The cheerleaders are planning a 
special theme '50'st game and post-game party 
Phi Eta Tau is planning a country fair again this 
spring. Sports provide possibilities for much 
participation besides being a player on Ihe team, 
and these are jusi a few examples of what is 
happening and available, 

Students with interest and energy can find or 
create outlets for self-expression in many fields. 
Being a pari of something larger than oneself can 
be the most exhilarating experience of one's college 
days. Self-discovery through self-expression can be 
the most vital education 

Miliigan offers many programs and areas of 
sludy. but much more: Miliigan is vour chance lo 
be YOU. 

career, \->\<. rise lo fame and 
wealth continued steadily, 

Casals did not rise above his 
contemporaries simply in his 
laleni and fame, however, but 
also in his sensitivity lo mankind 
For many musicians, nothing 
matters excepi music Casals 
went beyond that, however: 
"Music must serve a purpose: it 
must be a part of something 
larger than itself, a part of 
humanity, and that, indeed, is at 
the core of my argument with 
music today — its lack of 
humanity A musician is also a 
man, and more important than 
his music is his attitude toward 

More than anything else, war 
threatens humanity and the 
humanities, and World War I 
profoundly effected Casals 
Living in Paris when the war 
erupted, he was dismayed at Ihe 
"wildlv festive mood." In JOYS 
AND SORROWS he talks abnul 
this very sorrowful period: 
"Every human value was per- 
verted Violence was enshrined, 
and savagery replaced 
rationality The man who killed 
the largest number of his fellow- 
men was the greatest hero' All of 
man's creative genius - all 
knowledge, science, invention — 
was concentrated on producing 
death and destruction " 

When Franco's forces brought 
civil war to Spain in 1936, Casals 
fought back with his finest 
weapons — his cello and his 
conductor's baton Although he 
longed to remain in Spain, he 
traveled widely, giving benefit 
concerts to raise money for food, 
clolhing. and medical supplies 

During World War II Ca.sals 
lived in French Catatonia near 
Ihe Spanish border He received 
many lucrative offers for concert

To The Editor. 

In convocation. Dr, Wetzel 
brought to our attention that a 
few enthusiastic basketball fans 
are giving Miliigan a "bad 
name". If we have done this, we 
apologize However, we do not 
feel that our cheers and our 
expressions of emotions towards 
the refs, opposing players, or 
coaches are in any way out of 
line. We do agree, though, that 
profanity or vulgar language is 
unnecessary to express these 

At Monday's game Dr, Wetzel 
told our cheering section that if 
we continue to cheer in the 
fashion that we had in the past we 
would be escorted out of the game 
by the local constable. We feel 

thai this threai was uncalled for,:|;] 
and unfair to us A simple request::;: 
to refrain from the use of vulgar-:;: 
language would have sufficed ;:■; 
We are tired of the Ad-x: 
ministration telling us how to live":;: 
our lives. %\. 

When two opposing forces :;: 
come face to face there must be a :•: 
compromise We are willing to!:;' 
restrain the members of our;:- 
cheering section from using x 
vulgarity in return for the lifting :|: 
of the restrictions upon our ■:■ 
cheering section We feel we too :■ 
have rights as Miliigan Students ;:

tours abroad, but he could not 
bear to leave the thousands of 
Spanish people who had fled 
across the Pyrenees to France, 

In 1943, while the war was still 
raging, Casals began composing 
his oratorio. EL PESSEBRE. 
"The Manger": "In the midst of 
the savagery of war I was writing 
music about the Prince of Peace, 
and if the suffering of man was 
pari of that tale, it also spoke of a 
time when man's long ordeal 
would be ended and happiness 
would be his at lasl." 

This oratorio played an im- 
portant role in Casals' later life 
As the years passed after World 
War II. he grew increasingly 
frustrated about his efforts for 
peace While trying lo think how 
he could more effectively use his 
music for peace. Casals decided 
lo take his oratorio anywhere in 
the world ihat he could and 
conduct it as a personal message 
in the cause of international 
understanding and world peace 

Early in 1962 he announced his 
decision to embark on a personal 
peace cursade with EL 
PESSEBRE; "I am a man first. 
an artist second /\s a man. my 
first obligation is to the welfare of 
my fellow men, I will endeavor to 
meet this obligation through 
music — the means which God 
has given me — since it tran- 
scends language, politics and 
national boundaries My con- 
tribution to world peace may be 
small Bui at least I will have 
given all I can to an ideal I hold 

Casals died in late 1973 at the 
age of ninety-six. He had 
enriched the world im- 
measurably And beyond that, he 
had left an example of creativity 
and peace lo challenge future

A campaign against World 
hunger has been launched lO" 
make Americans more aware of 
the current crisis existing in 
underdeveloped countries. 
Senator Mark O Hatfield fR-

Moonej'ham, president of World 
Vision International, have made 
an appeal to Americans lo 
voluntarily experience hunger as 
part of Ihe public awareness- 

The Christian relief agency is 
to undertake a major campaign 
called Project FAST (Fight 
Against Starvation Today'. 
Project FAST, and World 
Vision urge Americans lo cut 
down on eating and use the 
savings to support overseas 
projects Ihat aid underdeveloped 
countries and help prevent 

Senator Hatfield, national 
chairman of Project FAST, 
has introduced a Senate 
Resolution to appoint Monday. 
No\'ember24.asa national day of 
fasting According to Hatfield, 
this day of fasting will demon- 
strate individual concern for the 
government's failure lo increase 
food aid to foreign countries, "it 
is my hope that the government 
will respond when it sees that 
Amencans do feel compassion 
for Ihe millions now starving 
throughout the world." said 

Planned fasting, major-city 
telethons, and the use of other 
mass media lo gain support will 
be some of the major courses of 
action for Project F AS T 
Mooneyham and Hatfield are 
expected to make public ap- 
pearances and speeches and hope 
to get the participation of lop- 
level food industry, labor and 
consumer group leaders Public 
awareness is also being in- 
creased through the current 
television documentary. "They 
Search For Survival " 

Hatfield and Mooneyham 
encourage all voluntary agencies 
and Christian Organizations to 
lake part m World Vision and the 
promotion of Project FAST 
Mooneyham has suggested that 
Christian College students help 
by fasting and urging friends and 
neighbors to' support by donating

When Miliigan College first 
fielded a baseball team. 
President Josephus Hopwood 
ordered it disbanded because of 
the un-Christian conduct of its 
opponents. What would be his 
reaction to the recent conduct of 
Miliigan fans? 

A small proportion of the 
spectators at recent Miliigan 
basketball games have con- 
ducted themselves in a manner 
which is un-Christian. un- 
sportsmanlike, and just plain

Expressing yourself: 

an experience in living 

"Milligan College - An Ex- 
perience in Living " Now Ihat is a 
nice phrase. But what is the 
experience? It is not Ihe same 
experience for everyone That is 
good because each one of us is 
different, and each one of us view 
life from a different perspective 
no matter how similar or 
dissimilar we are from someone 

The basic similarity shared by 
most people at Milligan is Christ 
Christ IS the bond that makes us 
one in His "body" Through Htm 
we have unity with God who is all. 
in all, and through all This unity, 
however, does not erase our 
individuality We each are slill

individuals with different needs. 
wants, and expectations. As 
members of His body we should 
recognize and accept one 
another's differences We each 
should recognize the right of 
another brother or sister to be 
himself or herself, because it is 
through the individual that Christ 
makes Himself manifest Christ 
speaks and shows Himself to 
each person in a way that is 
unique to that individual. No Iwo 
people find Christ exactly the 
same way That is Irue of each 
person in the Milligan com- 
munity That IS why the ex- 
perience of living within the 
Milligan community is different 
for each member of it 

This brings us lo the point in 
question Viewing Milligan as an 
institution, how much personal 
freedom can the members of the 
institution have and still not 
disrupt the order necessary lo, 
make Ihe institution workable? 
The criteria for answering this 
question lies in the area of per- 
sonal self-expression of the in- 
dividual. As far as the students 
are concerned (who incidenlly 
compromise the larger part of 
the institution ) we should be 
allowed to have the freedom lo 
d'ecidefor ourselves m matters of 
personal appearance in dress and 
personal taste in how we choose 
to arrange our dormitory rooms. 
After all these two aspects reflect 
our self image more than any 

The school has been fairly 
lenienl in respect to personal 
appearance t')n any given day in 
any classroom a number of 
various types of dress may be 
seen and ihis is to the credit o( 
the institution The only notable 
violation of personal rights in 
dress is something we tan call 
Ihe "Sunday Lunch Law". For 
many students this really docs 
not matter because they are 
dressed to suit Ihercgulatmn Bui 

still the question remains — does 
the institution have the right to 
tell sludenls how tSey should 
dress at any time for any reason? 
I think not. Even on Sunday the 
students - or anyone - should be 
allowed to decide lor themselves 
what clolhes lo wear 

H IS of the opinion of many 
students thai Ihey should also- 
have the right to decide how to 
arrange and decorate their 
rooms A student spends most of 
his college life in the dormitory, 
therefore the room should be a 
place where the student can relax 
and be himself True, most of the 
furnishings in the dormitory 
belong to the school and should 
not be abused — jusi as most 
people would not abuse the 
furniture in their own homes But 
the student should be allowed to 
use or not use the school furniture 
as he or she feels The student 
should have the right to do what 
he wants with the furniture 
during the time of occupancy. 

Any destruction of school 
property is the responsibility of 
Ihe person in the room and the 
individual student should assume 
that responsibility. In the case of 
Milligan perhaps it is better said 
that Ihe institution should allow 
the student that responsibility. 

By the unity in Christ shared at 
Milligan. through His love, we 
should also love one another. 
Thereby allowing the in- 
dividuality for each person to be 
expressed in as many forms as 
possible The institution can only 
better Itself by affording the 
individuality of Ihe people within 
— rather than atlempting en- 
forced conformity of lifestyle for 
all For il is through the ex- 
pression of our individuality Ihat 
we find Christ within oursolf. It is 
through His love that each of us 
can accept ihe individuality of

Missions major offered 

Dr. Yamamori has a headstarl 
on his duties as Assistant lo the 
President for Special Programs 
His first project has been the 
development of the Institute of 
World Studies ■ Church Growth, 
The program has five main 
thrusts, some of which have 
already been initiated. 

First, undergraduate degrees 
in World Studies will be offered at 
Milligan The major or minor will 
be composed of already existing 
courses, but combined in such a 
way as to prepare the student to 
understand and be able to live in 
a foreign culture, 

Still in the planning stage is the 
second division, a cooperative 
graduate degree program with 
Emmanuel, The student would 
take Milligan World Studies 
courses on a graduate level in 
addition lo courses at Emmanuel 
and receive a degree from 

Also in the planning stage is the 
third phase, short - term sessions 
and correspondence courses for 
missionaries already on the field 
They could complete courses 
without returning to the States or 
while home on furlough and 
receive college credits, 

The fourth phase is Church 
Growth Consultations Dr 
Yamamori works closely with the 
Christian Missionary Fellowship 
nn assignments of researching 
church growth in different parts 

of the world, MiUigan has already 
benefited from this relationship 
in that the CMF has begun lo 
support Milligan monetarily 
and plans to send iLs missionaries 
here to study 

The fifth division is concerned 
with Publication, A quarterly is 
now being edited by Drs Taber 
and Yamamori entitled, "The 
Milligan Missiogram " This 
provides the vital communication 
of ideas lo theentire brotherhood 
Although the magazine is only in 
its second year, it has already 
buill uD a wide circulation, 
from Princeton Theological 
Seminary to many other colleges 
to local churches to mi&sior.aric:; 
around the world.

The Institute had its beginning 
at the lime of the WS Carter 
Symposium last spring. The 
success of that Missionary 
Symposium demonstrated the 
need and mterest for such a 
World Studies - Church Growth 

Dr Yamamori feels that thc 
real genius of this program is 
that while meeting a real need of 
our brotherhood, it is utilizing 
existing faciUties and courses 
available at Milligan. 

He hopes that many other 
programs can be developed 
which will make the most of 
Milligan's polenhal while serving 
Christ's people.

Pack two years of 
Army ROTC into 
six tough weeks. 

Army ROTC usually takes four years of 
college. But now you can do it in only two. 
That's a good deal for everyone (men and 
women) who was unable to start the 
program in the freshman year. 

You make up those missed years in our 
6-week Basic Camp during the summer 
following your sophomore year. Its frankly 
tough because you cram 2 years of classes 
into a fast summer. But if you're looking 
for a challenge, it's there! 

You get over $500 for the time you're in 
camp plus travel allowance. You're under 
no obligation. You can quit anytime (but 

over 90% completed last summer's camp.) 

You are then eligible for Advanced Army 
ROTC. You earn $100 a month while you're 
taking the 2-year Advanced Course, and 
you earn your commission while you're 
earning your degree. 

Army ROTC offers plenty of other 
advantages you should consider. Mail the 
coupon so we can send you the facts. Or,

February 23 Kathy Gee died after having fought 
cancer for several years. We know Mrs. Gee 
through her husband. Dr. Charles Gee. a member 
of our science faculty. 

The Gees moved here in 1967. and have ricWy 
contributed to this area ever since. Kathy. a 
graduate Home Economics major, served as 
director of a day care canter as well as heading up 
such community projects as the Johnson City Bike ■ 
a ■ thon for cancer. Dr. Gee is known by all of hts 
students as a cheerful, enjoyable teacher, which he 
continued to be even through the difficult times of 
his wife's illness. 

At Kathy Gee's funeral, the church choir sang 
Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus," and the minister 
spoke of her Chrisitian victory. Il Is a joyous vic- 
tory, yes. but difficult for the weaker of us to ac- 
cept ; we are still sad that she is gone 

Thank you. Gee family, for your tremendous 
example of faith and courage May we be as strong 
when we are faced with sorrow. 

Orvel offers insights 

Dr. Crowder. professor of 
Psychology, is minister at the 
Hopwood Memorial Christian 
Church here on campus. 
Following are some insights he 
would like to share with the 
Stampede readers- 

ll is in our experience of the 
Godhead - the Father, son and 
Holy Spirit — that the whole 
mystery of existence is revealed 
to us. Il is God who gives sub- 
stance to all things; everything 
flows from Godhead or tends 
toward it, and it is only in the 
light of God that any of us 
discovers his true self 

The essential conversion is the 
one that turns us from the 
shallow and trivial and external 
to those supreme spiritual 
realities that are the ultimate 
basis of genuine joy and 


This whole universe is like an 
immense sign whereby the 
Creator reveals himself to us. 
bringing together the worlds of 
scientific effort and religious 
experience Here the great 
danger is to relegate religious 
experience to the domain of 
things interior to us. instead of 
seeking the interiority of all 

So many Christians — so many 
children of God — accept a kind 
of divorce between the world they 
live in and their internal, per- 
sonal faith; this is terribly wrong. 
Christian faith is internal and 
personal but at the same time it 
presupposes that God did 
something external and objective 
when he created the world and 
when he sent Jesus.

Early discipline vs. 

later irresponsibility 

by John Roy 

For the past forty years, the 
disciples of Dewey have been the 
high priests of Education, one of 
America's popular religions 
which has many converts from 
the middle class. 

These educators appoint 
themselves as experts in child ■ 
roaring and frighten parents into 
believing that every 

authoritarian act of the parent 
will ruin the child The educators 
do not want to frustrate the child 
so they insist that no restrictions, 
controls, morals or mores be 
inflicted on the child. Their 
humane desire, they claim, is to 
preserve uniqueness and 
freedom of each child , 

Let's examine a typical free 
individualist which our 
Deweyans hav.e produced. Un- 
fortunately, he is extremely 
dependent He has no training in 
charting proper courses of action 
and he has no freedom because 
he lacks the responsibilities 
necesssary to maintain it. When 
he leaves the guarded hothouse of 
home and public school he finds 
himself where everything is on a 
pay - as - you - go basis but he had 
not been taught cause and effect 

For years his parents were 
responsible for all his actions. 
When he broke windows, they 
paid for repairs. When he stole 
the bike, they paid, When he 
smoked pot. they hired the 

He is a slave, for he must live 
vicariously in the movies. T,V 
shows, and 8 - tracks. His desires 
must be gratified immediately or 
he is unhappy. So he lives a 
shallow existence with no 
knowledge of long range goals. 

He is unable to give, so 
marriage eludes him. He doesn't 
know how to or even care to love 
— which means giving to another 
person, whether male or child 
He resents the restrictions of a 
wife so he divorces. 

He cannot see laws 
realistically He picks the ones he 
wants to obey. He speeds at will 
and is irate when the cop "gives" 
him a ticket When disfranchised 
from the vole, because of a drug 
or iheft conviction, he blames the 
voter registrar Since he blames 
someone else he feels justified in 

striking out at society by more 
criminal acts. 

He IS restricted by the working 
world and by social contact once 
beyond the confines of his 
apartmenl. The demands on his 
energies go. There are bills to 
pay — someone always paid them 
twfore.Thereisa job9to5 There 
are social obligations to be met, 
but he really doesn't like the 
boss's wife. So he turned to 
alcohol, drugs, pseudo - religious 
mysticism, or the funny farm. 

What went wrong m Dewey's 
system? Why is Dewey's product 
more overtaxed than free? He 
simply was not trained during his 
growing years to function, to 
grow, to become mature, to be 
responsible, to have authority, 
and to have a lifetime of being. 
He has never been made to do. 
made to accomplish, nor made lo 
discover the satisfaction from 
achievement of a worthwhile 
goal- He has never been taught 
that freedom is commensurate to 

Depression hits our 
mood, our money 

The question today is: which is 
more depresced. the economy or 
the national mood? The economy 
is in pretty bad shape, but more 
devastating is the depression that 
has become a part of the 
American public's mood. Less 
than half of the American 
population feel that the Govern- 
ment can do much to help the 
economy, according to the recent 
poles. Both the economic 
depression and the depression in 
the national mood stem from the 
same causes: inflation, unem- 
ployment, government spending 
and ineffective government. The 
result is a general loss of con- 

Confidence has been 
recognized as a pre - requisite for 
a sound economy The present 
loss of confidence in the economy 
and government can only con- 
tribute to worse depression and a 
worsening in the national mood. 
The feeling that the Government 
should do something about the 
economic problem is being 
replaced with the feeling that the 
government cannot do much to 
help the economy Nixon's 
economic programs did not work. 
Ford's programs do not sound as 
if they will work, and Congress 

by Mark Poorman 

has not yet been able to present 
any programs. Without the 
essenUal ingredient of confidence 
in government, depression is the 
logical result. 

Unemployment and inflation 
have depressed everyone Run - 
away prices have put many 
items, such as meat, almost out 
of reach for many families, 
especially those families whose 
only breadwinner is out of work. 
Even those working feel no job 
security. Large factories are 
constantly cutting hours, laying ■ 
off and firing workers. 

Here at Milligan we are not 
exempt from this depression. 
Many of us came lo Milligan 
much more confident of our 
financial situation than we are 
now. Many of us owe Milligan 
money which we don't have and 
have no way of getting. And 
many of us are depressed. 

The only way to beat the 
economic depression is by 
economic optimism ; and the only 
way to beat the national mood of 
depression is by optimism. How 
to achieve this optimism is 
unknown. If you have an idea. 
v.Tite President Ford, I'm sure he 
would be glad to know.

Canine Conspiracy 

I cannot take it any longer I 
have put up with many hardships 
already - eight o'clock classes. 
Humanities papers, Statistics 
tests, even non - operable stalls in 
Pardee Hall, that technological 
dream. But the hardship I am 
speaking of is uncalled for, 
Friends, Milligan is going to the 
dogs, and I think it is time for 
someone to lake a stand against 
this invasion by man's best 

Just the other night a dog 
walked into my room in Pardee 
Hall Thinking that he was 
another Webb Hall misfit who 
had become lost in the catacombs 
of Pardee Hall. I politely told him 

that he had the wrong dorm 
(Being the dc^ that il was, I told 
it that it had the wrong dorm and 
that it probably belonged on 
Sutton - Hart hill, being the dog 
that It was.) 

I still remember the dog that 
obliged us with its presence in 
convocation. Who could forget 
that experience? I enjoyed the 
solo, dog, but must you continue 
on and on? The least you can do, 
dog, is take your seal. How's 
thaf You forgot your row and 
seat number'' Look out. Big 
Brother is coming after you. 
There's no way out now ; he's got 
you by the neck, 

I thought that was the end of 
the dog until a few days later, in 

by Dan Kirkland 

Bible class. There was the old 
dog, sitting in the back row. Aha • 
a Bible major, eh? 

Today I was assaulted on the 
street by four dogs. I was min- 
ding my own business, enjoying 
that juicy SUB hamburger, and 
for no reason at all these four 
dogs attacked me. 

Like 1 say. Milligan is being 
invaded by dogs Dogs are 
everywhere, It's a conspiracy. 
We must defend ourselves. 

We must conserve energj'; we' 
must ration petroleum; we must' 
reduce our use of paper, which 1 
means we should stop printing 
irrelevant editorials like tliis one. ' 
Milligan is going to the dogs. ' ' 


"Freedom is the world's water 
and weather, the world's nourish- 
ment freely given, its soil and 
sap: and the creator loves piz- 
zazz " Yes, even God likes a little 
zest now and then Thus writes 
Annie Dillard in PILGRIM AT 
the 1970's 

Just as Thoreau went to 
Walden Pond in 1M5. so Ms. 
DiJIard recently spent some time 
at Tinker Creek in a Virginia 
valley. Thoreau went to the 
woods because he ■'wished to live 
deliberately, to front only the 
essential facts of life." Ms. 
Dillard says of her sojourn at 
Tinker Creek; "Like the bear 
who went over the mountain, I 
went out to see what I could see" 

Neither of these two individuals 
was a hermit, fleeing from 
mankind and the world of the 
living. They both realized, 
however, that many people hurry 
and scurry around without ever 
beginning lo live. They realized 
that life not only involves ac- 
tivity, but depth as well. And it is 
this depth they sought as they 
stripped away mundane routine 
and encountered nature in the 

Wherever we are, creation 
surrounds us. We cannot escape 
it. Yet, we can sleep through it; 
we can close our eyes to it In 
fact, we often do. By immersing 
herself in streams and trees and 
butterflies and mountains. Ms. 
Dillard discovers a way lo 
awaken; and as she awakens, she 
also finds that she can see 

Seeing Tipasses much 

more, howevt., than just a 
perfunctory physical act. Seeing 
comes only to those who will open 
their eyes, who will venture forth

Your own Walden: 

living free 


intonew dimensions: "The secret 
of seeing is to sail on solar wind 
Hone and spread your spirit till 
you yourself are a sail, whetted, 
translucent, broadside lo the 
merest puff." 

Many of us fail to see because 
we are always looking al the past 
or the future, but never at the 
present The present fills every 
moment, yet somehow we lo 
manage to close our eves and 
dream of other times and places 
How can we expect to live fully, 
though, until we learn to ap- 
preciate the here and now"* And 
how can we appreciate the here 
and now until we open ourselves 
to the infinite possibilities of the 
present momenf 

In her explorations of time and 
space, nature and life. Ms 
Dillard considers the immanence 
of the present: "You don't run 
down the present, pursue it with 
baited hooks and nets. You wait 
for it. empty - handed, and you 
are filled. You'll have fish left 
m-er . . . The present is the wave 
that explodes over my head, 
flinging the air with particles at 
the height of its breathless 
unroll; it is the live water and 
light that bears from undisclosed 
sources the freshest news, 
renewed and renewing, world 
without end." 

Unfortunately, we often regard 

pec^le like Thoreau or Ms. 
Dillard as impractical, idealistic, 
romantic fools They loafed in the 
woods, but we have to live in a 
busy world that doesn't stop 
turning when we stop to think We 
live m the midst of cars and noise 
and greed and exploitation, 
Violence and death surround us 
We have lo work: money doesn't 
grow on trees. The world of work 
is the world of reality. 

Maybe those who live in this 
type of reality need to try living 
in the woods and along the 
creeks. A few may be able to 

literally move there The rest ot 
us will have to live there mentally 
and spiritually, but not as her- 
mits, running from society and 
responsibility Instead, we must 
live in the woods and along the 
creeks as seekers — seeing 
renewal and re-creation, always 
aware and imaginative, con- 
tinually open to God's Spirit. 

We spend loo much lime saying 
hello to ourselves We need lo 
start saying hello to each other 
and the world and our creator. 
Once in awhile we should forget 
all our knowledge and begin 

learning awe and and 
amazement- As sons and 
daughters of God. how can we 
ignore the divinity of all 
creation? Why can't we wake up 
and start seeing? An entire 
universe waits for us to ex- 
perience It, 

Ms- Dillard expresses it so 
vividly: "King David leaped and 
danced naked before the ark of 
the LOTd in a barren desert. Here 
the very . . soil is an intricale 
throng of praise. Make con- 
nections; let rip; and dance 
where you can,"

Dear Editor. 

Having attended the February

Council. I was appalled by the 
conduct of our representatives 
John Ray made a motion con- 
cerning a secret roll call vote 
taken at the first of the year The 
motion, that the vote be made 
public, was defeated 3-19-2 by 
angry Student Council members 
who were afraid to have their 
vote made known These are the 
people who we voted to represent 
us and they should be held ac- 
countable to their electorate 

Should a group of people 
selected by the student body be 
able to take secret ballots on 
subjects, which affect the student 
body? Should they be able lo 
discuss secretly without being 
held responsible to the people 
whom they supposedly

do not represent me or you 1 say

Dear editor. 

During the past few weeks, the 
Milligan campus has been 
rumbling with rumors of another 
tuition increase, rumors that it 
will range from S75 - S3(M) a 

1 wish to express my opinion of 
the present situation My own 
financial background is rather 
limited, as are most students'. 
Therefore. many students ex- 
press feelings of uncertainty and 
questioning when faced with a 
second tuition increase in two 
years. The foremost question that 
arises is of course; what has 
caused the increase'' 

Regardless of whether a tuition 
increase will again become a 
reality, wc must review our 
financial situation A dislinci 
discrepancy is obvious upon 
pondering the cost of living on Ihe 
Milligan College campus. The 

biggest cost, after tuition, is 
board Last year's increase 
boosted the cost of meals up lo 
$680 per year, or about S80 per 
month Included in this price is 
the costs of preparation and 
clean-up. However, allowing for 
those addilonal factors, a quick 
comparison with the average 
monthly foodbasket price for this 
area shows how much we are 
being overcharged for our meals. 

Also, recently our cafeteria 
manager posted numerous 
poslers concerning the 

pre\'enlion of the waste of food 
As an employee in Ihe cafeteria, 
it is my opinion that the waste of 
food is not on the part of the 
students, but due lo Ihe 
mismanagement of our cafeteria 
This opnion is not only mine, but 
of many others who work there 
also Upon regular observation of 
Ihe food preparation and ser\-ing. 
I have observed that large 
quantities of unused and un- 
touched food are discarded every 
night The management of the 
cafeteria should, by now, cer- 
tainly know approximately how 
much food to prepare lo prevent 
such gross waste 

Another problem area con- 
cerning financial management is 
the maintenance of the older 
buildings on campus Room 
expenses for one year total S440 
per student. The residents of 
Pardee and Hardin Halls are 
obviously being short - changed 
by the conditions that exist in 
ihese dormitories As a resident 
of Pardee Hall. I have observed 
many avoidable situations At the 
present lime, the 16 residents of 
the north end of the second floor 
in Pardee Hall have a total of two 
toilets. Ihe others have been out 
of order since August The toilets 
that do work frequently overflow 
sewage on the floor and down- 
stairs which has removed many 
ceiling and floor tiles l>elow 
Other problems exist such as 
heal regulation, when and if heat 
IS available, broken window 
panes and rotting frames, and 
inoperable showers which have 
been continually reported lo the 
mainlence department without 

response Badly leaking ceilings 
and faulty plumbing has also 
plagued the residents of Hardin 

I feel the situations in the older 
buildings should be taken care of 
as part of Milligan College's 
responsibility to the dormitory 
residents Another fact thai may 
be pomied out is that the cost of 
living in these inadequate dor- 
milories totals S1760 per school 
year for a group of four students, 
or about S195 a monlh Compare 
the present dormitory conditions 
to that of a Sl95-amonih apart- 
ment in Johnson City! to be 
shared with three other students, 

This editorial was not intended 
to demean or discredit the name 
of Milligan College, bul lo point 
out some very obvious gaps in the 
efficient use of our money The 
students of Milligan College have 
e\ery right to demand the wise 
use of the money which we paid to 
the school in order to receive the 

quality education which is 
available at Milligan. However, 
many financially deficient 
students may not be able to 
return next year due lo the un- 
wise budgeting of money by 
Milligan College 

I accept full responsibility for 
the abm-e statements and ac- 
count for the ideas confined 
within as personal (pinions.

Gary: That's fantastic! You 
mean to say you won 6fi games in

Gary: Ohh Say Killer, how 
true are the rumors about the 
cruelty of your coach to his 
players? Did he ever strike you? 

Killer; Only in self ■ defense. 

Gary; All through your years 
in high school, what was your

Bye-bye Blackbirds 

The killing of blackbirds in the 
Fort Campbell area of Kentucky 
results from a recent mflux of 
approximately 15 million of the 
species which residents claim 
have endangered health and 

Artificial pine planting, a 
project now in progress in this 
area — as well as in the Green- 
brier and Milan areas of Ten- 
nessee where similar problems 
exist, have been the cause of this 
recent influx. Dr Wallace said. 
The pines offer protection from 
the weather and the farm lands 
near ■ by provide food for the 
birds These birds sometimes 
travel as much as 35 miles from 
their roosting area — in order to 
obtain food 

Dr. Wallace toured a large 
area of Fort Campbell late 
December when the birds should 
be at their peak He observed 
farm lands to the north, east and 
west of Fort Campbell, but did 
not notice any large numbers of 
birds except for a flock which he 
saw on a large cattle farm, and 
this he thought was an exception 
He hastened tosay.howevjer. that 
although his lour did nol reveal 
signs of the existing problem he 
was willing lo conclude thai there 
is a problem and blackbirds could 
be a serious threat lo health. 

Blackbirds cause a disease 
called Histoplasmosis This is a 

respiratory disease It is picked 
up by breathing in sporehbuilt up 
in their feces 

When asked about the side 
effects which could result from 
the spraying of these birds, Dr 
Wallace said, "one spraying in 
itself could nol affect ecology 
unless it was done on a wide scale 
in several states The spray will 
not affect any other species, but 
one cannot be selective in this 
method, therefore m the process 
of eliminating the starling and 
common graefel — the two kinds 
of blackbirds they are attempting 
to eliminate, they are going to kill 
any other types of birds which 
happen to be occupying habitats 
close by This in effect could alter 
the population of other species 
like robins, cardinals and other 
simitar birds"

Issues in Entertainment 

Remember all of those ' spine - 
tingling" movies shown and 
reshown on "Shock Theatre'"' If 
one recalls, one interesting 
phemonema usually occured 
after the "goulish" flicks became 
reruns; they ceased to be 
terrifying or interesting, In fact, 
after the first viewing, a horror 
film became quite amusing as the 
shock value and suspense was 
were replaced by triteness and 

Mel Brooks has recently 
written and produced a new film 
version of "Frankenstein" which 
parodys the horror classic 

The plot of "Young 
Frankenstein" remains essen- 
tially the same as the early 
versions which were based on 
Mary Shelly's gothic novel. 

However, "Young Franken- 
stein" possesses all the frenzic, 
zany qualities one expects in a 
Mel Brook's film. The parody 
makes use of the essential 
suspense element of horror 
movies which keeps the audience 
in a desperate state of an- 
ticipation. Expectations are 
climaxed by comedy in "Young 

Perhaps the best scene in the 
film occurs as Dr Frankenstein 
and his monster do a vaudvillian 
skit in top hats and tails while 
performing "Putlin on the Ritz", 
This scene provides one of the 
best contemporary comic high 
soots to be filmed. 

Gene Wilder portrays Dr, 
Frankenstein with an emittance 
of occasional sensitivity, despite 
the flatulent humor of the rule 

Peter Boyle is wonderfully 
delft as the clumbsy monster 
The eccentricity of Boyle's 
performance "polishes even Ihe 
sharpest scenes, 

GeneHackman makes a cameo 
comedy appearance as a blind 
hermit who encounters the 
monster and out - wits him. 

Cloris Leachman is sur- 
prisingly delightful as the 
housekeeper. Fraw Blucher 
Even Miss Leachman seems to 
be enjoying the role, which is an 
accomplishment in itself 

To be sure, there are redundant 
scenes in "Young Frankenstein 
Yet. one considers the worst of 
Brook's comedy to far exceed 
that of his contemporaries such 
as Woodv Allen's coddled humor. 

Funny side of faith 

by Mika Shannon 

There have been suggestions 
throughout Christendon that our 
Christian hymns should be 
abandoned for more modem 
expressions of worship. I think 
the old tunes will be hard to do 
without. So I have revamped 
some old songs, to make them 
more responsive to 20th Century 

(To the tune of "Take My 
Life and Let it Be) 
Take my wife and let her be 
Consecrated Lord to thee 
Take her eyes and lei her see 
Just how busy she can be 
But dear Lord don't count on me. 


(To the tune of 
"Onward Christian Soldier") 
Like a mighty turtle, moves the 
Church of God 

Brothers we are treading, where 
we've always trod 
We are all divided, many bodies 

confused in faith and doctrine, 
weak in charily 


(To the tune of 

"All Hail The Power") 
All Hail Abuse of Jesus Name 

Its said down every hall 
Forever it is being defamed 
The worst abuse of all 
Forever it is being defamed 
In northern twang, and soutnem 

'To the tune of 
"For The Beauty of The Earth" ) 
For the pollution of the Earth 
For the smokey. smoggy skies 
For those who would destroy oiir 

With their cold and calloused lies 
Lord of all to the we raise 
This our self - destruclive craze

Buffs record best season 

The Milligan College Buffaloes 
left the hardwood and the 
roundball this year with a season 
record of 25-6. The season came 
to an end for the Buffs after 
suffering a defeat to Carson ■ 
Newman in the VS. A C, Tour- 
nament This has been the best 
season for the team smce coach 
Phil Worrell has been a I Milligan 
The Buffs won the Eastern 
Division championship of the 
V.S.A-C this year, which has 
never been done by any other 
Milligan basketball team 
Milligan shared the title with 
Tennessee Weslyan College 

Coach WOTrell, reflecting on the 
post season says, "We've come a 
long way, done a lot of things 
right and played some good 
basketball " 

The Buffs will be losing four 
players to graduation this year 
Dan Harding, Craig Boyles. 
Albert Larry and Eddie Carver 
This writer has been through 
sixty - three games with these 
seniors, and can say that each 
one is a fantastic person in their 
own respect. Each -one has 
contributed an impOTtani part to 
the success of the Milligan 
basketball program 

Dan Harding added a great 
deal to the morale of the team at 
times when it was low Craig 

Boyles contributed his ability to 
"shoot the eyes out of the 
basket " Albert "Spud" Larry 
became a leader this year by 
averaging 15 5 points per game. 
Eddie Carver, who never played 
one day of high school basketball, 
led the team in rebounds with an 
114 average on 'iie boards 
Eddie's career average is 11 
points and 12 8 rebounds per 
game "The good l^ordonlv made 
one Ed Carver", said coach 
Worrell after the C-N game "We 

by Karl Schmidt 

won't replace Eddie He is a once 
in a lifetime player, and one 
whose leadership value is more 
important than his scoring and 
rebounding," Coach Worrell 
concluded that "Eddie Carver is 
not only a fine basketball player, 
he is a fine man These four men 
will be missed a great deal next 

Coach Worrell has a fine 
nucleus of players returning next 
year for another season. Jerry 
Craycraft, Robert Taylor, Ken 
Lealherwood and Marty Street, 
Ken Leatherwood received 
honors by making all District - 2-4, 
and is also a possible All - 
American candidate Other 
returnees next season are Mike 
Schmidt. Jon Zeltman, Craig 
Clayton and John Miller 

If you happened to be traveling 
along highway 11 -E from 
Knoxville Sunday and saw nine 
young men m orange warm - ups 
running along the side of the 
road, it was the Milligan College 
Track Team. In an effort to gain 
publicity for the track program 
at Milligan, the track team ran a 
Marathon from Knoxville to 
Milligan Despite the cold 
weather and falling snow the 
runners were quite excited about 
the challenge before them. Larry 
McNelt said that the fellows ran 
exceptionally well in the cold 
weather. They ran much faster 

than anticipated, and as a result 
had to kill some time along the 
way in order to arrive at Milligan 
at the lime announced. The 
fellows ran onto the campus 
about 6:00 p.m. Those par- 
ticipating in the marathon were 
Larry McNett, Lee Marrow. 
Allan Shealy, Kf^bbie Allan, Bob 
Manuel. Mike Bowling, Craig Ott. 
Randy Miller, Carter Blci-'ins and 
Robert Cheesman. 

Congratulations track team 
and we will be looking for you 
along the West Virginia Turnpike 
next year. 

Baseballers warm-up 

iiTiai ^ 

The 1975 edition of the Milligan 
College Buffaloes begin regular 
season play March sixteenth but 
practice for the baseballers has 
already begun Sixteen lettermen 
return from last seasons break- 
even team that won seventeen of 
their 34 games 

Steve Palmer, junior shortstop. 
is the top returning hitter with a 
292 batting average Lynn 
Deskins and Ronnie Doss, fresh- 
men, hit a 268 and 250 respec- 
tively. Denny Mayes hit a .265 
last season as a sophomore 
catcher Centerfielder Mike Cline 
was the second leading home run 
hitter of last year with a total of 

Four pitchers return with 
ninety-three innings divided up 
between them Dean Minter. the 
lone senior on the squad, finished 
up last season with a winloss 
record of S 2 C.reg Goulds 
carried an earned run average 
fEHAi of 52 and Gordy Miller 
had an ERA of 92 Sophomore 
Steve Hypos, last year's most 
used pitcher, returns with a very 
respectable ERA of 2 6.1 

"f)ur slrcnglh should be pit- 
ching, however this includes hieh 

school records of some highly 
regarded recruits as yet untried 
in collegiate baseball," reports 
head coach Harold Slout These 
younger pitchers certainly did 
have fine high school records- 
Marty Street was 26-3 including a 
13-0 record his senior year. 
Freddie Akers was 27-4, and Joe 
McLain was 2M. 

Last season coach Stout led the 
Buffs to a second place finish in 
the Western Division of the 
VSAC This year's squad with 
only one senior and five juniors 
certainly qualifies for the lable of 
a young ball club 

The following is a brief look at 
how the conference should stack 
up in the very balanced Western 

Carson-Newman was last 
seasons champs and they look 
slrongagain this year They have 
one of the winnmgest coaches in 
the league so I pick their team as 
the one lo beat in 1975. 

Our Milligan Buffs are just a 
step behind due to our lack of 
experience and untried per- 

Tusculum has a new coach and 
most people agree that the 

by Steve McKinney 

Pioneers should do well under 
their rookie mentor. 

Lincoln Memorial University 
should be improved over last 
season but the Railsplitters have 
not got enough horses lo rale any 

King College has also entered a 
team in the VSAC for this year. 
This is the first year for baseball 
at King so I feel that it will take 
them at least one year to adjust to 
the competitors so 1 rate them to 
finish number five. 

We will know a lot more about 
our Buffs after they travel down 
lo Florida to play eleven games 
during Spring Break They begin 
on March 29 with a double header 
against Harvard University at 
Daytona. St Leo, Rollins, Flonda 
Tech and Tampa University are 
next in line before playing 

Georgia Tech on the return trip to 
Milligan on the fifth of April. 

Until next time enjoy 
basketball season but do not be 
surprised if you liear something 
going on down at the baseball 
diamond, because il is nearly 
baseball time again

Brackin explores ESP 

Dr. Braidcin is a familiar face 
on campus. During his time here 
at MUligan he has taught various 
psychology courses, including 
Social Psychology, General 
Psycholog>'. Advanced General 
Psychology, and Experimental 

PsychoIog>'. Usl summer Dr 
Brackin became interested in 
para-psychology and went to a 
convention at St. Johns 
University in New York City At 

the convention they did a 
systematic study about parap- 
sychology, Parapsychology is 
different from other forms of 
psychology in that it deals with 
the unexplainable, it is the study 
of extra sensory perception In 
the experimental parap-

Brinkley puzzles 

Mary Ann Brinkiey. a student 
here at MiUigan and also the 3 to 
11 nursing supervisor at Carter 
County Memorial Hospital, has 
created and plans to copyright 
some unique designs known as 
therapeutic puzzles. 

Ms. Brinkley has entered these 
designs in the Appalachian In- 
vestors Fair which was held in 
Oak Ridge. April 18-19- The fair is 
the first major event in the new 
Atomic Energy Museum and was 

open to both amateurs and 
manufacturers Ms. Brinkley 
attended the fair in order to 
explain her creations. 

These puzzles are perceptual 
devices which can be used as toys 
or teaching devices Used in a 
philosophical sense the 4 inch 
series can illustrate the different 
ways of approaching a problem 
The basic structures of plastic or 
cardboard present "systems

And next, the Indy ^^^ ? 

Milligan College has finally 
made il big with the introduction 
of a unique new sport, wagoning 
On Saturday. April 12. Rob 
Hooker and Dave Hughslon made 
the first historic senes of daring 
manuevers and displayed their 
feat of unusual skill in a pair of 
"Radio Specials" 

The unique fad began with the 
acquisition of numerous wagons, 
bicycles, tricycles, and scooters 
from an Elizabethton children's 
home. Many of the toys were in 
need of repair, which Rob agreed 
lo provide. After a skilled, 
tedious matching of one ■ of - a - 
kind parts, Rob. Dave, and 
several other residents of Pardee 
Hall produced a handful of 
precisely machined and expertly 
custom ■ built wagons. 

Realizing the danger and 
consequences of such ferocious 
beasts in the hands of mere 
children. Rob and Dave decided 
they could not return these un- 
tamed machines without an 
adquate road test 

Teeth blattering and knees 
knocking, the daring duo and 
their racing machmes peered 
warily through the trees of 

Seeger hill The wagons began a 
slow, creeping pace with a 
squeak down the hill lo benin 
another historic momeni in Ihc 
annals of Milligan College Afier 
several trial runs, accompanied 
by numerous encounlers with 
many large trees, a successful 
ride as finally made lo the bot- 

A small group of anxious ob- 
servers watched with a keen 
sense of awe and curiousity as 
lUSlory was made on Seeger hill 

The following days were filled 
with the appearance of throngs of 
both participants and observers 
Several new, young drivers 
daringly challenged the 
numerous hills, both paved and 
unpaved, lame and savage alike 
S*ion the races were begun from 
the lop of mighty Ml Sulton 
Quick lo attempt the treacherous 
slopes of the seemingly un- 
conquerable Sullon hill, the 
drivers soon drew large crowds 
of onlookers, All ready lo view 
the exciting climax of this brutal 

As the courses became a 
greater challenge, the riders soon 
began lo don protective equip-

helmets, bent axles and wheels.

Finally ai -1 23 p m on April M. 
Ihe ride of rides was successfully

crowd of nearly 80 spectalors 
cheered with sheer delight 

When asked what inspired 
them lo make Ihe rides Ihal may 
change ihe course of modern 
machine hisiory, Rob and Dave 
replied that the primary reason 
was because "il was Ihere", 
Another contributing factor was 
the fact that both young men 
never had the opportunity of 
exciting wagon rides as boys, as 
(hey are from the fiatlands of 
Indiana and Texas

College was in the grasp of a war 
between the classes Between 
freshman and upperclassmen, nf 

The conflict spread to ihe rural 
provinces Buffalo Creek, in fact, 
was abounding with the infinite 
number of gagged, lied, and 
mangled bodies, filling Ihe depths 
of the water 

The roads of ihe lime filled one 
night with hundreds of running 
slaves. Known by the lerm 
"Freshman Mile." it was 
characterized by unknown 
dangers lurking in Ihe dark, such 
as water balloons and pails of 
freezing water. 

The urban areas also ex- 
perienced the conflict Pardee 
Hall, for example, became en- 
meshed in an era of "dink 
checks " Night and day, the

Milligan College is trymg 
something new this summer, 
there will be a program for Bible 
college students wishing to get 
certification to teach 

The program is entitled 
"Stretch." The three year 
program gels this name, because 
it stretches the students time, 
money, mind and life 

It stretches the time, because a 
Bible college student can spend 
three summers at Milligan and 
receive the certification to teach 
They can do this while not in- 
terfering wilh their regular Bible 
college program 

It stretches the money, in that 
the student pays for only 14 
hours, while they are able to 
receive credit for 16 hours. This 
represents over Sioo savings per 

It stretches the mind in 
broadening the aspects of the 
students knowledge 

It stretches the life by the Bible 
student being able to develop 
their extra talents for God's 

Between 35 to 40 Bible colleges 
have been informed on the 
"Stretch" program Dr 
Morrison says, "The interest has 

been veiy good." 

No Bible college can offer 
teaching certification. Many 
colleges and universities will not 
accept the credits from a Bible 
college Milligan will, and they 
hope to have a good response to 
this program 

At the end of the three year 
program and the Bible college 
program, the student will receive 
a degreefrom their Bible college, 
a degree from Milligan and 
teaching credentials, qualifying 
the student for public school 

The creator of this progr^lm is 
Dr John Morrison, and the 
supervisor is Dr. Paul Clark, 

Prerequisites, which must be 
taken al the Bible college, are 6 
hours of Old and New Testament, 
6 hours on the Restoration 
Movement, 6 hours of PracUcal 
Ministries. 3 hours of speech, 6 
hours of Freshmen English. 12 
hours of Foreign Language. 6 
hours of history , 6 hours of either 
sociology, government or 
economics. 8 hours of science. 6 
hours of health and physical 
education, 3 hours of Introduction 
to Pscyology and 3 hours of 
Development Psychology.

we have faced many trials, and 
answered them with guns The 
American Revolutionary War 
was not the first WAR on our 
sacred soil. For two and a half 
centuries white men had been 
slaughtering Indians, and only a 
few years before the American' 
Revolutionary War we had the 
French - Indian War Since the 
American Revolutionary War, 
which we patriotically celebrated 
this year, Americans have shown 
their patriotism many other 
times. We continued to slaughter 
Indians until about 1880 when we 
had deplealed the population so 
far Ihal we figured we had belter 
save a few, like we did the buf- 
faloes. In 1812 we started another 
war with England. We won this 
war when England gave up. and 

had our only real victory after the 
peace had been signed (The 
Battle of New Orleans) Soon 
after many palroits decided that 
the Spanish, who had been in 
Texas before the first English ■ 
American settlement, should 
give up Texas to a band of un- 
couth patriotic Americans The 
Mexican government rightly 
refused; and another war Then 
we got mixed up and some 
patriots sided with States Rights,

The students of Milligan 
College are still alive, at least in 
reflex action Plodding toward 
the end of another school year, 
the student body had become 
drowsy from basking in the 
warm, early spring sun Most 
grades had already been 
determined, and plans were 
being made for the new life of 
summer which looked promising 
on the students' side of the fence 
that some call finals. The seniors 
of Milligan had become content to 
leave ttie campus with its newly 
acquired indoor bird bath, and 
several were ashamed that few 
dramatic moments could be 
recalled from their four year 
enlistment, or enrollment, 
whichever the case may be. Very 
little noticeable change occurred, 
and perhaps nothing more was to 
metamorphose on tlje Milligan 
scene before graduation day. but 
on April 25, a new spark kindled a 
small fire. May that fire continue 
to burn in this article so as to 
illuminate the issue at hand. 

There are students at Milligan 
who are interested in the school's 
welfare and take it upon them- 
selves to stay informed of affairs 
that affect Milligan College 
Beginning on April 25, the at- 
tention of such people began to be 
drawn to correspondence which 
President Johnson received from 
the Department of Health. 
Education, and Welfare An 
investigation of the situation 
revealed that Milligan College 
had rather innocently been led 
into violation of Title IX while 
hoping that Mars Hill College 
A'ould be successful in a court 
case to set a precedent for 
private, federally-funded schools 
in keeping sex - discriminatory 
rules which were designated as 
vital for the protection of female 
students. Nevertheless. Milligan 

College had been allotted fifteen 
days to determine their course of 
action to alleviate or perpetuate 
the alleged infnngements of 
students' civil rights On behalf of 
the entire college, several 
students chose to become in- 

It was to be understood from 
the first that the students would 
act as responsible citizens, the 
majority being of a Christian 
conviction, although several 
people would discredit that 
possibility To further identify 
the leaders of this movement, it 
can be said that they are a group 
of people who believe that 
Milligan College is unique in the 
realm of private higher 
education. The favor with which 
they regard Milligan is a result of 
an administration, faculty, and 
student body which are dedicated 
to God and the objectives of 
quality Christian education 
rather than an appreciation of a 
set of rules that govern student 
life in such a way as to dictate 
"Christian" living. With such a 
comprehension of the ideas that 
compose Milligan's philosophy, 
these students did not interpret 
the directive from HEW as a 
threat to individual existence but 
rather as a stimulus to encourage 
a more wholesome campus life. 

It seems now that everyone 
mui.1 get involved ; so, let us 
move into first person The 
following statements do not 
pretend to be representative of 
the entire student body (For 
those readers who would like to 
make a Christian vs. Communist 
issue of this article, please be 
aware that the author feels 
totally free to use any 
propoganda beyond this point 
McCarthy meets Nikita i Equal 
rights is an issue in which 
everyone must become involved. 

Just as we now look back with 
shameful memories to the racial 
prejudices which were prevalent 
m recent years, some day in the 
future we will also be made to see 
that our suppression of females 
and overpro taction at a time 
when their adult life styles should 
have been forming were wrong 
and detrimental to their welfare 
Professing to be capable of ad- 
ministering adult respon 
sibilities, we believe that young 
ladies come to college just as 
young men do to leam how to 
function in social situations and 
in competition for jobs and 
success. Only by being allowed to 
set their own values and learning 
to govern their own lives for their 
own best interests will women 
leaving Milligan College be ready 
to deal with the real world outside 
the artificial college atmosphere 
We believe in the freedom of all 
students to face and deal with 

In contemplating possible 
courses of action which Milligan 
may choose to take in response to 
the Office for Civil Rights 
directive, one may initially see 
several alternatives Milligan 
could survive without federal 
funds, or could they"* A curfew 
could be placed on the men, but 
how could it be enforced, how 
many guys would leave Milligan, 
and how many girls would seize 
the chance of taking Milligan to 
court for enough money to 
complete their education wh-'n 
unequal enforcement becam«. 
obvious"" Again, Milligan could 
call HEW's bluff and see what the 
government would really do if the 
directive was ignored. This 
seems to be the only recourse if 
the college desires to retain its 
sex-discriminatory rules. Yet 
this line of action also has a 
corollarv Milligan may well lose

Reflections of a graduating senior 


forces writers lo remain dioof 
from their readers In this final 
STAMPEDE of my college 
career, however, I have decided 
to take a strictly personal ap- 
proach and to tell the story of my 
years at Milligan 

The summer before my fresh- 
man year, my uncle told me not 
lo be afraid to change my plans if 
I wasn't happy with what I was 

doing I politely agreed, bui 
silently I lold myself thai such a 
change of goals would never be 
necessa ry . I wa nl ed lo be a 
preacher. I was going lo preach, 
and that was all there was to il. 
Now, nearly four years laier. I 
am a humanities major, planning 
to return lo Indiana and farm 
with my father. Some people 
wonder about this. They think 

thai I am alxindoning laloiiis and 
opportunities and throwing away 
a polenlially successful career 
Naturally. I disagree During my 
years at Milligan. I have realized 
more clearly Ihan ever thai all 
Christians are ministers, in ihe 
very fullest sense of Ihe word. 
Most professors and students al 
Milligan express their agreement 
with this view Only a few of Ihem

its federally funded student 
financial aid and all other 
government support if she 
chooses to be president in her 
violation. Another result could be 
s lengthy and expensive court 
case, Milligan can not withstand 
either of the above two results, 
No federal funds means a sharp 
decline in enrollment. A court 
case would involve the spending 
of money which could be better 
used to pay faculty salaries 
which are sometimes overdue. 
Neither the faculty nor the 
students would be willing to 
jeopardize the college's future to 
retain Ihe enumerated violatory 
rules. Faculty discontent with the 
role of sacrificing, and Ihe 
students having been promised 
that nothing would be done to 
jeopardize their federal student 
aid should guarantee us from 
such a disastrous course of ac- 

We thus believe thai Milligan 
has but one alternative, and that 
is to comply to the HEW directive 
by eliminating the sex- 
discriminatory rules in the 
'women's dorms. Such an action 
may seem too harsh and unfair, 
but the situation is not that bad 
Milligan has a security problem, 
and if a locked dorm policy with a 
uniform method of obtaining pass 
keys were implemented, as has 
been done al colleges across the 
nation, intruders could be kept 
out of dormitories. Some people 
fear the radical element that 
would come lo Milligan as a 
result When one examines 
Milligan's cost, location, the rest 
of her rules, the objectives of her 
catalog, and the male student 
body here in comparison to the 
male student body of university 
campuses which also have no 
male curfew, most of the fears of 
the liberal influence on Milligan 

can be dissipated. 

The matter comes down lo a 
decision on adull capacities of 
students had the persuasive 
influence of money As for the 
money, people thai have the 
money control those who need it 
Milligan is no exception in her 
dependence on the government, 
congregations, and individuals. 
In cases that will be belter kepi 
out of print but which can be 
subslanlialed, Milligan has used 
her financial aids and scholar- 
ships al times lo control student 
actions In the same way. 
churches and individuals have 
been permitted lo influence rules 
and regulations al Milligan in 
exchange for money The federal 
government also has its 
requirements. The pill is not so 
bitter to take when one faces the 
reality of money's power. 
Congregations that have been 
faithful lo Milligan may have 
reason lo feel repulsed, and those 
who were nol so faithful to 
Milligan should feci sorry The 
Christian churrln-s have hncn 
guilty of letting milligan lapse 
into this predicament Now ihe 
question is if they will understand 
the situation and accept the 
unavoidable outcome without 
expressing malice toward a very 

faithful college. The blame, if 
there is to be one. can be allotted 
proportionately among a large 
number of Christians who 
doubted Milligan's value loo long 

Our request to see Ihe women 
on campus irealed as adults does 
nol then seem so unreasonable, 
yet the acceptance of the stand 
students are laking on this issue 
will relfecl the administrative 
opinion regarding ihe maturity 
and adull capacities of the 
Milligan Siudeni Body Lei it be 
remembered thai God has placed 
the primary responsibility of ihe 
upbringing of youth with their 
parents and that Jesus pleaded 
for brotherly love as ihe best 
means of protection of brothers 
and sisters in Christ who tend to 
have difficulty in looking out for 
themselves. A tillle maturity and 
concern can go a long way toward 
crealingal Milligana much more 
involved, responsible, and 
considerate sludeni body Ihan 
what any curfew system could 
guaranlee. Let Christian love 
protect Ihe inexperienced

were obtained on a petition ex- 
pressing similar ideas lo those 
slated above For ihis reason I 
feel justified in using Ihe plural of

Sonietimes people ask me why 
I'm attending a liberal arts 
college if I'm going lo be a far- 
mer. Usually those who ask this 
queslion are. ironically, very 
outspoken concerning ihe value 
of a liberal arts education Yet. 
by questioning Ihe value of such 
an education for a farmer. Ihey 
are displaying their gross 
ignorance of ihe liberal arts 

During my slay here I've 
discovered Ihe existence of 
several Milligan Colleges on ihis 
campus Some people might call 
this phenomenon "diversity in 
unity" or "Ihe problem of Ihe one 
and the many" or "Ihe social 
dynamics of cliques" I simply 
prefer to think of several 
separate sludeni bodies existing 
simultaneously on a single 
campus I look al some students 
here and conclude that we've 
been going lo different colleges 
They look al me and probably 
decide the same thing. It's a 
mystery, but a healthy one. 
Unfortunately, as Milligan's 
sludeni body increases in 
homogeneity, this mystery of 
diversity is slowly disappearing 
Springtime brings a specTST 
feeling lo Milligan The students 
embrace spring, and spring 
returns their affection by sowing 
seeds of love Before 1 came lo 
college I thought that anyone who 
married prior lo graduation was 
really crazy During my first 
spring at Milligan I fell in love 
wiih JeaneeTimm The following 
September we got engaged The 
next summer we were married 
I'm glad I Ignored my pre-college 
philosophy. Love is a great thing, 
and a lot of love begins al 

Antagonism, however, also 
exists here Lots of it arises when 
students, including myself. 
refuse lo trust administrators. 
It's unfortunate thai a dichoiomy 
does exist between students and 
adminislrators I've probably 
conlributed to this division as 
much or more than most, and in 
many ways I'm sorry I have I'd 
like to say something positive lo 
theadminislralion like. "Keep up 
the good work, men." but such a 
glowing generality seems in- 
tellectually dishonest Perhaps in 
this last article of mine il would 
be best to keep my praise specific 
and Ignore adnuiiistraiive 
siiorl comings 

Almost Ihree years ago 
exactly. Ur Wetzel and 1 ad- 
dressed each other on these same 
editorial pages of THE STAM- 
PEDE Dunng the few limes 
we've really talked, he has tried 
to be hones! with me. and I have 
tried to be honest with him. 
Undoubtedly we have both seen 
more of each other's thoughts 
and character than mere words 
have revealed This lype of 
honesty can be dangerous, but il 
can also be refreshing. I've ap- 
preciated il. 

More than anything else, it's 
peoplethat make Milligan what it 
is. I've made a lot of acquain- 
tances here, and some of them 
have been really good friends 

Most of the professors here 
have also influenced my life, 
some of them in very profound 
ways. 1 can only express to them 
my deepest gralilude and 
respect. Many faculty members 
have given much to preserve 
Milligan's ideal of Christian 
education, and I'm thankful for 
them But. I'm especially thank- 
ful for those professors who have 
repeatedly shown their love for 
students in very specific, down - 
to - earth ways. The diversity of 
professors has meant a great 
deal lo me. I hope Milligan never 
sacrifices this diversity for the 
sake of unquestioning unanimity 
and conformity 

The story of my experience at 
Milligan would nol be complete 
without mentioning Hopwood 
Christian Church Much of my 
spiritual and mental growth has 
resulted from the fellowship and 
preaching there Few 

congregations embrace the wide 
spectrum of members Ihat 
Hopwood embraces, and few 
people see and share the spiritual 
insights that Orvel Crowder sees 
and shares. 

I have looked a little to the 
pasl : now it's lime to look ahead. 
Yet. there are no easy answers 
for the question. "What about ihe 
future of Milligan?" Some people 
are convinced the school will 
survive Its present financial 
crisis. A few onlookers say the 
college's end is near Either 
group may be righl 1 jusl don't 
know, Milligan's collapse would 
be a tragedy, but the school 
would not have existed in vain. I 
do hope, however, that Milligan 
survives And if it does, 1 hope it 
continues to bless the lives of 
many students.

to thinking: so much in fact thai I 
^iJreamt about it I dreamt tiiat the 
foilegf was about to fold and 'he 
administration was desperate In 
a last ditch effort to save Milligan 
they gathered together all the 
great student minds on campus lo 
hack out and answer the college's 
problem. These geniuses were — 
Mike Shannon. Keith Whinnery. 
Larry McNett. and Karl Schmidt. 
Dr Wetzel led them into a great 
hall and opened bysaying: 


We've gathered you all 

In this great big hall 

To have you converse 

To haggle and curse 

To bring out of this confusion 

An answer to the problem — a 

The administration of the 
college is crushed 

Solve Ihe mystery — but don't 
feel rushed — 

If you don't improve the college 

We will double your tuition 

(And with these words — Wetzel 
shrewd and deft 

Turned on his heels — locked the 
door and LEFT) 

The boys looked at each other — 
there was a stillness in the air 

Keith said, "Let's gel started - 
Larry gel down from that chair" 

Then Mike said. "Let's get set- 
tled — We've a job lo do" 
Karl sal up and said. "Well my 
word — listen to you!" 

Larrv stood and said. "This is nol 
a lime to clown." 
Keith woke up and said. 
'Allrighi. Let's keep it down" 

Karl spoke up. "you know what 

happened al Ihe game the other 


"Spud stepped on some guys 

head — almost started a fight'" 

"Did anyone hear the explosion." 

said Larry, "in Webb ihe nlher 


"We knocked fourteen guys from 

off their beds — they thought it 

was D-Day!" 

Mike broke in and said, "Did you 
guys see me in 'Charlie Brown^' 

Keilh woke up and yelled. 
"AUrighl — Lei's keep it down!" 

Larry poked Mike, "Did you 
know we filled John I'lm's shorts 
with pasle** ' 

Karl looked peeved and said, 
"my word — what a waste! ' 

"You could have used it better." 
said Karl, "Il'd be a scream"

■'If you had glue together all the

"The last show I was in." said 
Mike. "I had lo wear a gown'" 
Keith jumped up — "I'm wamin

Said Larry "we forgot something 
— it seems to me" 
And Karl said. "AUrighl baby —

"I think it was important," said 
he. "I just can't seem to tell" 
"And my newest part," said 
Mike, "is John the Baptist in

Larry said, "Oh well whatever it 
was it'll have to keep" 
Keith said with a sign, "Good —

The extravagant film ar- 
;istically, as well as

predecessor. "Funny Girl." The 
scripl is more cohcreni, ihe sets

Nothing cheap emerges, from

Rose coped with Fanny by

uncouth as it was. Caan likewise 
copes wiih the intense per- 
formance of Streisand by 
retaining his whimsical, 
sometimes scrappy, technique of 
acting Both Rose and Caan 
emerge delightfully noble. 

Director Herbert Rces has 
handled the ominious task of 
directing the film; especially the 
staged vocals, in spectacular 
fashion. The film even contains

Significantly, a high degree of 
naturalism was asserted by each 
act, thus transcending the 
preoccupation that some per- 
formers have when they're 
nervously tight during a concert. 

Organization owed to Tim 
Brady was evident throughout 
the show especially since the 
audience was appreciably spared 
of the usual time consuming 
tuning "yen-yan" of past 
Milligan concerts. 

The organization that was 
necessarv did not stifle the in- 

trospective mood procured and 
maintained during the show. 

As the post - concert jam

wondered whether, whether, it's

the dean's office 

Under new management 

James C Huskins 

TheTirsl thing thai one notices 
about Dr Paul Clark is thai he is 
extremely busy, He is so busy, in 
fact, that il Js easy to see v;here 
the myth got started ihai 
academic deans are of some 
class of deity and are inac- 
cessable lo mere mortal 
students. Such is indeed not the 
case with our own acting dean. 
Although some small amount of 
pcrsislance was required in order 
lo follow through with an in- 
terview appointment, the slight 
delay was not at all out of line 
with the scheduling of a man of 
such position 

When asked his impressions of 
his new responsibilities, Dr 
Clark responded that ho had run 
into nothing unexpected- He cited 
his membership on the academic 
committee and familiarity with 
the position as sufficient 
preparatory experience, 

I learned during my interview 
that the academic dean's duties 
include presiding over the 
faculty, keeping the curriculum 
in order, approving variations in 
student's schedules, and, the 
most popular job of all. en- 
couraging students on the 
probationary program 

Prior to this semester, Dr 
Clark directed the teacher 
education program of the college. 
This in itself is a full-time job 
which he still holds As 
preparation for all this respon- 

sibility, he holds a B A from 
Harding College, an MA from 
East Tennessee State, and a 
Doctorate in Education from the 
University of Kentucky, 

When asked if he was doing 
anything differently than Dr 
Wetzel. Clark showed some signs 
of hesitancy to commit himself 
He made it quite clear that Dr 
Wetzel had left him complete 
freedom, but also pointed up 
efficient handling of the job by 
the regular dean and the futility 
ofmakmg major changes on an 
interim basis He did. however, 
mention the new Calender of 
Milhgan Events (COMA) 

One nf the most significant 
questions asked the acting dean 
concerned his projections of the 
future academic situation of 
Milligan, including any for- 
seeable problems As expected, 
he felt that this was extremely 
difficult to predict, especially in 
light of current economic factors 
Although his answers at this point 
were rather generalized, he did 
express a cautious note of op- 

He affirmed the school's 
committment lo a continually 
flexible curriculum and to 
meeting the ever changing needs 
of new students. He feels that 
education must be current in 


order lo be relevant. 

On the negative side it was 
noted by the Dean that present 
economic conditions make it 
impossible for Milligan 'to keep 
teacher's salaries in line with 
inflation It is fell thai this could 
affect educational quality here in 
the future even though it has nut 
yci had any nolicable reper- 

When asked to slate the 
school's academic philosophy. 
the Dean avoided using the term 
■■|il)eral arts." commenting thai 
It IS overworked, and proceeded 
lo list the usual, "giving a 
general purpose education, 
preparation for graduate school, 
and preparation for certain 

Refreshingly, though, he did 
not stop there, because that 
would leave Milligan in the same 
boat as countless other colleges 
compel ing for the student's 
dollar and devotion Dr, Clark 
also said. "We believe that re- 
evalualion is part of knowledge 

and should be taught as such." 

This reporter found Dr Clark 
not only accessable but quite 
personable He showed numerous 
signs of capability and even 
genuine humility concerning his 
position His general sense of 
awareness seems possibly 
dampened only by over- 
cautioncss Who knows, though. 

maybe cautiousness is the "in" 

thmg these days. 

Rebate Roundup 

Twenty students enrolled this 
fall as a result of the New Student 
Rebate Program, This program 
was set up lo increase freshman 
enrollment. It began with the 1975 
Spring break. 

Any student who turns in a 
prospect for recruitment, and 
that prospect in lum comes lo 
Milligan. will receive a $50 
deduction on his bill and will be 
credited this rebate every 
semester the new student stays 

T\^■enIy-one Milligan students 
turned in a total of thjrty-six 
names as possible recruitments. 
Senior. Scott Hudson, turned in 
the most He added six lo the list, 
four of which are presently 

Millar mothers 

S- Mrs JoAnne Millar is the new- 
dorm mother of Hari Hail She 
came to Milligan in July from 
Rockville. Indiana She worked 
as a licensed practical nurse for 
twenty-two years and was 
trained for her former work in 
the state of Indiana. 

Mrs Millar accepted the job 
offer to be a dorm mother 

because she fell the work could 
prove to be very interesting She 
comments that the students are 
being a very nice group. She is 
also enjoying her new Milligan 

The students of Milligan extend 
a cordial welcome to Mrs Millar 
and wish her much success in the 
coming year.

SGA emphasizes religion 

Dave Johnson is the president 
of our Student Government 
Association, which is more 
commonly known as the Student 
Council, for this year. 

One of the main goals this year 
will be lo bring about im- 
provements in religious affairs 
Becky Reeves will be the 
Secretary of Religious Affairs, 
and will head up several projects 
during the year. The first project 
will be to begin a prayer break- 
fast, which will meet every other 
Wednesday morning at 7: 15, The 
Religious Affairs Committee is 
also planning a retreat for later 
on in the year; however, nothing 
definite has been decided upon 

Dave hopes to see the student 

body become more self- 
governmg this year One of the 
ways in which students will ac- 
complish this is in Traffic Court 
Traffic Court will be run entirely 
by Ihe students this year 

There will be al least ten 
movies shown on campus this 
year, and students will gel to 
decide which movies ihey want lo 
see Sometime next week there 
will be a list of approximately 60 
movies passed out to the 
students, and Ihey can then vote. 
As far as concerts are concerned, 
nothing definite has been 
scheduled yei 

Dave hopes to get clubs to 
sponsor various projects 
throughout the year in order to 
bring about general campus 


Student Council will be in- 
volved in at least two community 
projects Dave hopes to see a lol 
of student involvement in these 
projects The first of these is the 
Red Cross Blood Program The 
second, is one that will cause 
many great personal sacrifices, 
the Toys for Tots program These 
are both very worthwhile 
projects that need student sup- 

Dave seemed very excited 
about the challenges of Ihe year 
ahead In summary of the main 
goals of Student Council for this 
year, he said. "I want to see more 
student unity in the school and to 
encourage more interest in 
religious affairs "

I have now been at Milligan 
College for almost two weeks I 
feci thai now I am ready to make 
some objective observations on 
the school without any fear of 
being biased by homesickness. 

Like most freshman are or 

should be, I was worried about 
coming to college, and at the 
same time excited about it But 
any fears I had were soon 
dispelled by the genuinely warm 
welcome we received from the 
upperclassmen and faculty 
Everyone was smiling and 
helpful, and believe me, to a kid 
away from home for the first 
time that me^ns a lot. 

I had never visited Milligan 
before I came here Therefore. I 
was immediately impressed by 
the beauty of the campus The 
green trees and the htlls give the 
school an almost idyllic setting 
In fact, if you are sitting near a 
window in class, it is very hard at 
keep from staring out the window 

and thinkmg about a nice nap on 
the side of a hill under a big tree. 

And speaking of class, it's 
hard. You think back lo all those 
times your teachers told you, you 
better study because you'll have 
to do it in college, and you jusi 
laughed and went back to playing 
lic-tac-toe or the dot game But 
It's true ! The professors just keep 
piling It on However, they're all 
wonderful, sweet, intelligent, and 
I'm sure, understanding people 
And after buttering them up like 
that. I'm sure we'll all make the 
dean's list Right leachers'' 

Honestly, I am very impressed 
by Milligan College, and I feel 
that I made the right choice in 
coming here to college It's a 
beautiful place, the people are 
fantastic and the atmosphere is 
perfect for growth both 
academically and spiritually I 
think I can speak for the majority 
of the freshman class in saying, 
we are glad to be here and to be a 
part of the Milligan community. 


THERE ARE 1001 o€*es 

and finally ...acceptance 



To mosl of the students on 
campus Miss Ivor Jones is a new 
face and, unfortunately a 
stranger This article is written 
so that she will be a stranger no 

Miss Jones was born in Piney 
Flats. Tenn, and graduated from 
Milligan College and the 
University of Tennessee, Other 
colleges she has attended are 
Duke, Columbia, and Oxford of 

Unlike so many people who. 
after being exposed to such in- 
stitutions of learning, become 
caught up in their own knowledge 
to the point of boorishness, Miss 
Jones has retained her vitality of 
spirit and her intellectual en- 

When questioned on her ob- 
jectives for this year the reply 
A'as this: "This year I would like 
:o do that job that Dr. Fife gave 
Tie to the best of my ability, I 
A'ould like to make myself ac- 
ceptable to Dr Read, the head of 
he History Department, so that 
le will feel that 1 have done my 
ob well," 

To give the student body a 
uller understanding of this 
voman's enthusiasm it must be 
lated that although retired, she 
etumed lo Milligan when called 
o teach the courses of American 
listory and History of England. 
Vhy'' Because to here "The most 
■xciting part of one's li fe is spent 
m the college campus " 

As a person Miss Jones is shy 
ind very sensitive. She loves 
nusic, reading, and " a 

pectator role in the theater." An 
tvid traveler. Miss Jones feels 
hat the only way to know a 
ounlry is by ", . . experiencing 
he people and places first hand " 

Miss Ivor Jones is a great asset 
Milligan. She is a professor 
.ho has a genuine interest in her 
tudents and cares about them as 
idividuals- If only all could be as 
nthusiastic, interested, and 
harming as Miss Jones'

Don Mascola, our Postmaster,

From the Editor's Desk 

Comparatively cheap Changes time hath wrought 

Quit griping 

I am really getting tired of 
hearing people complain about 
the cost of education at Milligan 

Sure, Milligan's luifion, room 
and board have risen in cost, but 
thejr^re still lower than those of 
most other colleges and 

The College Entrance 
Examination Board estimates 
the average cost al a four year 
public college will be $2,679.00 
this year, a 12 percent increase . 
over the 1974 figure. For private 
(Colleges the average cost is an 
astronomical $4,391 00, 

Milligan College charges 
$2,618,00. Thai is less than the 
average cost of a public college, 
and is only GO percent of the 
average cost of a private college. 

Milligan is a bargain. For this 
low price, you receive a quality 
education in a Christian at- 
mosphere. And that would be a 
bargain at any price. 

Dr. Bison ? 

Let's give the buffalo an 
honorary doctorate. He has 
served Milligan long and well as 
a symbol and mascoti. 

Why not give the buffalo an 
honorary doctorate'' Milligan, 
among other American colleges 
and universities, has been 
handing out honorary doctorates 
like they were penny candy. 

At one time, an honorary 
doctorate was an honor, a 
deserved honor at thai ll was a 
recognition of doctoral level work 
and acheivement on the part of 
an individual 

The honorary doctorate is not, 
and never should be used as, a 
reward for financial gifts or 
political favors. To use il as such 
is to demean its worth. 

In looking at the honorary 
doctorates given out in the past 
four years only one has been 
deserved, that given to Lone B.

Like so many other wandering 
willies, I find myself, after a year 
out there, back in the confines of 
Milligan College Perhaps I'm 
here again by fale, or possibly by 
chance Regardless of why I'm 
back — which has no essential 
bearing on this article — the past 
year has wrought many 
noteworthy changes at Milligan, 

First of all, hello, there fresh- 
man and sophomores! You're 
enjoying humanities this year, 
eh? It is too bad that many of you 
have never known or never will 
know Dr, Tracey Miller, former 
teacher of Humanities and 
English You may have benefited 
greatfy by his acquaintance. But 
lime moves on So let's move on 
to the significant changes in 
adminsitrative personnel. 

Mrs. Phyllis Fontaine, our new 
dean of students, is a very likable 
lady who does, no doubt, have her 
work cut out for her Anyone who 
would even attempt to coordinate 
and supervise the Milligan mob is 
at least admirable. Let's give her 
^_ fighting chance. 

Even though we sadly miss the 
smiling face of his predecessor, 
Dr Paul Clark, our acting dean, 
is also a welcome addition. Dr. 
Clark has been seen in the 
classroom conversing with 
students and teachers and has 
made provisions in the interest of

Speaking of work, mine in the 
Student Union is quite 
pleasurable this year Bill 
Woolard is to be commended for 
his efforts to better meet student 
needs through the Union. While 
discussing the SUB, it would be a 
bit unfair not to praise Dave 
Johnsorx and his Student Union 
Board The tireless efforts of 
Dave and his board should be 
highly appreciated. Students also 
deserve laud for electmg such a 
competent leader. 

A major change has occurred 
in the area of equal rights for 
students. Women, who formerly 
were not permitted to smoke on 
campus, may now smoke in the 
designated areas. You've come a 
long way baby! Just don't go any 
further, because you might not 
make it back for your qleveh

Milligan College did change 
during my year of absence 
People don't sit on Roan 
Mountain in their underwear 
anymore and K P, made the

Disregarding my previous 
thoughts — which have no 
essential bearing on this article 
~ I sincerely believe Milligan is a 
much more positive place than it 
was two years ago.

The Reality of Mortality 

The fiercest reality that man 
must face is his own mortality. 
Yet many people, maybe even 
the majority, choose to ignore the 
reality of death They pass their 
miniscule existances sucking on 
pacifiers and teething rings. 

Olhers top to examine the 
problem of death, but are im- 
mediately so awed by the 
magnitude and power of death 
that they panic. Because their 
bodies cannot remain forever 
they scramble about the surface 
of the earth, begging to preserve 
a name, begging [o be remem 
bered. A few peculiar people 
conquer death These people do 
not selfishly preoccupy their

WHAT p;p 


The people who flee from the 
reality of death try to satiate 
eachmdment with amusement or 
self-gratification They may be 
seen stuffing food in their mouths 
to placate their taste buds and 
then popping ye olde antacid 
table to relieve their over- 
worked stomachs. 

If they Jiaye the monetary 
means, they may focus "their 
attentions on material 
possessions like cars, clothes, 
real-esiate. bank rolls, or stereo 
equipment. Otherwise, they 
divide their time between sleep 
and heck-raising. 

They are no strangers to the 
church. On the contrary, they 
make the rounds in religious 
circles seeking to have their 
backsscraiched or to have ec- 
static while they renege on 
their responsibilities to the poor, 
the inform, and the imprisoned. 

The well-educated among these 
escapists are found deeply 
burrowed in works of literature 
or art galleries. Regardless of 
how they try to escape death, 
they pretend to be grabbing for 
all the gusto when they are really 
grabbing for straws. 

The Mexican jumping beans 
who are awed by death seek to 
become legends Although their 
contributions to society seldom 
match the legacy which 
Ozymandians left, the popular 
prophets repeatedly exhort the 
youth to join the ranks and 
imitate the deeds of these glory 


Their faceless names pad 
volumes of history books. "They 
render an unparalleled service to

must press leaves for their leaf

busts fill the dusty niches of

TTiey stamp their appelations 
on public buildings, college 
campus buildings, streets and 
highways, and if all else fails, on 
hymnals and pews in country 
churches. They spend their whole 
lives trying to create a memory 
of the history books. 

However. their efforts are 
futile. The millenia erase their 
names from memory and they 
die a second death.

ressurection is more absurd, but 
if it is true, then death is no more 
harmful than sleep 

Those weird people are willing 
to buy the story, lo simply sup- 
pose that the story is true They 
have and do daily conquer death.

by Dan Kirkland 

The 1975-76 academic school 
year has brought with it a new 
problem which is plaguing the 
students of Miliigan College This 
problem, the issuing of endless 
parking tickets, is caused by the 
administration, which is trying to 
maintain order by creating 

This in an unnecessary pain in 
the neck, as well as a'pain in the 
wallet. The obvious causes are 
the facts that there are too many 
cars on campus and not enough 
parking places to put them in 

Every student who registered 
his car paid $4 for his right to 
keep his car on campus Since 
almost 400 cars were reigstered 
this year, almost $1600 was made. 
What happens to that $1600'' One 
look around will convince anyone 
that it certainly hasn't gone to 
building or repairing parking 

What happens to the $4 which 
the business office receives every 
time an unquestioning student 
pays his fine^ 

The adminstration has hired 

three students to work five hours 
per week, per student. Fifteen 
hours every week, then, one of 
these students is on the job. 
issuing tickets. 

The average person may begin 
to wonder which direction 
Miliigan College is headed 
toward when students are 
checking up on other students 
We have come to the point where 
some students have privileges 
which other students do not have. 

Are all the tickets necessary to 
the well-being of the Miliigan 
community? The only obvious 
life-and-death situation when a 
ticket should be issued is when 
students park their cars in places 
where they obstruct other cars. 
However, there is nothing sacred 
about parking in places where no 
danger is presented to any 
student. Such a place, where 
tickets are absolutely un- 
necessary, is the pasture in front 
of Webb Hall, 

The rules over the use of cars 
on campus state that "certain 
clearly marked areas are lo be 

reserved for the parking of 
faculty, staff, and visiiors " 
Some of these areas are no longer 
so "clearly marked" as they 
perhaps once were. The rules say 
nothing about unclearly marked 
areas or notices which are almost 
imperceptible lo the human eye. 
One example of this is the spaces 
in front of the Student Union 
Building The typical student 
parks there seeing no white line 
or notice lo the contrary Ap- 
parently, it is to be "understood" 
that only staff can park there, 
although it is not so "clearly 

It is obvious that more parking 
room is needed on the Miliigan 
camfxis. Oiie candidate for the 
possible paving of a new parking 
lot IS the area in front of the 
administration building, where 
commuters could park for 
classes. Presently, commuters 
are forced to park al Anglin Field 
and must walk up the hilt in order 
to attend classes 

Another likely candidate for a 
new parking lot is the grass field 

between the Webb-Pardee 
partang loi ano the fire lane in 
front of Webb Hall, Another 
candidate is the small area of 
grass between the Student Union 
Building and Hyder Science 

An easier solution to the 
parking problem might be to 
enlarge existing parking lots, 
which could be enlarged on two 
sides^nd the gravel parking lot 
between Webb Hall and the old 
fire station, which could be ex- 
tended alongside the fire staion 
and on behind it. 

It seems apparent that any 
institution which can build, or 
attempt to build, a fieldhouse 
costing over one million dollars, 
can certainly find the funds to 
build or enlarge parking lots If 
the college had' enough parking 
space, it would not need to issue 
tickets And. at a time when the 
administration cannot afford to 
lose any students, it would be 
wise to relieve this problem 
which it has created 

Optimism, Detente, Henry Kissinger and the third world 

At least in international affairs 
Americans should be optimistic 
However, many Americans still 
exhibit a pessimistic view 
Nonetheless, the international 
scene is shaping up very well 

The imperialists among us may 
be disappointed with the in- 
ternational scene, but the 
majority of Americans should 
welcome the new trend in in- 
ternational affairs. This new 
trend has developed from two 
different ideas. 

First is the idea of Detente or 
the deliberate, mutual 
recognition and efforts for peace 
by the superpowers. 

The second idea is collective 
unity among small nations These 
two factors have produced a 
much more stable world than wc 
had ten years ago 

"Detente" symbolizes the 
present attitude of the United 
States government in in- 
ternational affairs Detente 

means more than jusi talking 
peace with the Soviet Union 

Detente means that we 
recognize that the United States 
is only one of many nations 
Detente also recognizes the end 
of America's dominance over 
world affairs 

Detente recognizes that the 
United Soviet Socialist Republic. 
China, and even the smaller 
countries have importance and 
that the United States must seek 
friends based on trust, not on the 

Detente is a serious effort for 
peace through diplomacy, not 
through the rattling of rockets, a 
policy that did not work in Korea 
or Vietnam 

Detente is non-imperialistic 
and therefore does not seek to 
create United Slates satellite out 
of our friends but instead ines lo 
create trading partners or just 
good neighbors 

Thus the effect of Detente on 

the world has been favorable 

Henry Kissinger is world 
renowned as a diplomat ex- 
traordinaire and a peacemaker 

Although the United States has 
not yet won back all the fnends 
she lost during the I960's. she is 
no longer hated the way she was 

The United Nations was 
originally formed to promote 
international peace. Recently the 
United States and the Union of 
Soviet Socialist Republic have 
decided to bypass the United 
Nations in mutual peace efforts 

This trend is good because 
direct talks are needed among 
the superpowers 

The United Nations has 
developed into a third-world 

Through the United Nations the 
third world countries are making 
their causes known, and often by- 
mutual effort, getting those 
causes acted on by the ap- 
propnate countries 

The United Nations also 
provides a place for third world 
nations to find themselves 
politically Because of the im- 
proved communications offered 
by the United Nations even a 
relatively poor nation can afford 
to negotiate with any other 

The United Nations has also 
stimulated third world clubs such 
as the Pan-Afncan League, and 
the various Arab state unions- 
Through the United Nations the 
Third world has essentially 
become unified 

In this worid of today all 
nations need each other in order 
to attain their potential No 
longer can the United Slates or 
the Union of Soviet Socialist 
Republic depend solely on their 
own natural resources 

Small African countries 
produce products that the United 
States needs, and to get them the 
United States must treat these 
new nations as equals. 

by Mark Pnnrman 

Twenfy years ago we aealt with 
either France. Great Bnlain, 
Portugal, or Belgium for raw 
materials, but today we must 
deal with their former colonies 
for these items. As empires 
crumbled. new nations 

Each of these nabons need to 
be recognized. 

For a prosperous America we 
need Swedish steel. Japanese 
transistors. South African 
diamonds, Turkish missile 
bases. South American food 
stuffs, and Far East Asian 

The United States has finally 
realized that she must treat her 
friends as friends, and that her 
trading partners should be 

Detente is a great leap forward 
in international affairs, and 
Americans should be optimistic, 
not pessimistic about develop- 
ments on the international front

"The Wind and the Lion ' is a 
romanceaswell as an adventure. 
It is a story of appreciation: 
appreciation of nature, par- 
ticulariy the sterile desert and 
Roosevelt's respect for wild life; 
appreciaiton for mankind; 
Raisuli's bemusement with Mrs, 
Pedjcaris, Roosevelt is Raisuli's 
enemy. They feel a com- 
radship, being great yet lonely 
men. Raisuli is a prophet. 
Roosevelt a president. The most 
important appreciation is for the 
art of sacrificg: Roosevelt 
sacrifices some imperialism to 
save Mrs, Pedicans Raisuli 
sacrifices his hope for short 
ranged freedom. Perhaps the 
whole matter of the film is ex- 
pressed as Raisuli surveys the 
desert, turns to a companion and 
remarks whimsically "Have you 
ever found one thing in your life 
that was worth everything 
else**" Greatness was the 
Raisuli's forte as well as this 
film's significance.

Kestoration Movement terms: 

orthodox ■ my opinion 

liberal • one who disagrees with

Junior Cindy Schultz displays her agilily during ROTC basic 
training at Fort Knox. Kentucky. 

You'rein the Army now 

Junior Cindy ShulU was among 
200 college women that made 
history at Fori Knox this summer 
when ROTC went co-ed for the 
first IJme. 

Cindy attended a six-week 
basic training program which 
"covered two years of ROTC 
classes Her schedule of classes 
included: rifle range, leadership 
First Aid. security, military 
courtesy. squad tactics, 
ceremony drills, radjo and rifle 
assembly, map readmg, sur\'ival 
swimmmg, obstacle course and 
orienteering (using a compass). 

The Army day began at 5:00 
a.m. with latnne duty By 7 00 
am Cindy and her platoon had 
practiced formations, done 
calisthentics and had run one 
mile These activities served as 
only a warm-up for the business 
of the day which included 
bivouacs, or. "playing war," as 
Cindy describes it, study in a 
classroom or practice of field 
techniques at the base Lights out 
came at 9:30 p.m in the 

College men were enrolled in 
the same six-week program 
Many classes were co-ed. but the 
women were not required to 
participate in all the activities of 
the regular ROTC program 

"Tliere was competition bet- 
ween the girls and buys." Cindy 
reports. "They called us babies 
when we were excused from the 
more difficult activities so we did 
more than was required to show 
them ' 

Women in ROTC caused much

The officers were confused as 
to what to expect of the female 
trainees. According to Cindy, 
male sergeants were easy, while 
female sergeants demanded 
higher standards than those 
enforced by the regular program. 
Yet the young women felt 
cheated at limes and thought 
they were capable of more work 
than was asked of Ihem

Milligan responds 
Title IX 

Equality in athletics has 
become a major issue of colleges 
and universities today Title IX. 
which prohibits sex 

discrimination in education, 
provides for athletics and quality 
facilities In theory, what Title IX 
IS saying, is that men and women 
should have equal opportunities 
in any program that is offered 
Patricia Bonner, an instructor of 
physical education at Milligan. is 
not a supporter of Title IX 

"Funding for athletics should 
be based on the need and ability 
of the players, not on the sex of 
the team. I do believe that Title 
IX has its good points. Its goals 
should be to gel the funding that 
is needed for quality womens 
athletic programs," 

When asked about co- 
educational sports, Miss Bonner 
expressed a negative altitude 
"Women are at a definite 
physical disadvantage when 
competing athletically with men 
Instead, we have tried to have 
sports for women which 

correspond with mens sports, 
such as baseball for men and 
Softball for women. 

How will Title IX affect 
Milligan'' "I believe it will do a 
lot of good." said Miss Bonner. 
"There are a few thmgs which 
seem trivial, but are very im- 
portant, and need to be changed 
Things like better transportation 
facilities, equal funding on away 
games (Sizzlin' Steak House for 
the men, McDonalds for the 
women), and better uniforms and 
equipment, will only benefit the 
womens programs 

"We must keep in mind, though 
that Milligans primary function 
is to train students in their 
overall educational goals Used 
in this perspective Title IX will 
benefit all those concerned

Dr. Tetsunao Yamamouri. 
Assistant to the President for 
Special Programs and Associate 
Professor of Sociology here at 
Milligan. is the man responsible 
for the organization of Milligan 
College extension campuses. 
Extension campuses are 
designed to make the college's 
services available to people 
throughout the United States and 

Dr. Yamamouri explained that 
there are already several 
Milligan extension campuses in 
operation The major extension 
campus sponsored by Milligan is 
the Milligan Center located in 
Harford County, Maryland The 
Milligan Center in Harford came 
into being after the minister and 
elders of the Mountain Christian 
Church in Joppa, Maryland 
contacted Milligan with a request 
to consider opening an extension 
campus in their area. After a 
feasibility . study by Dr. 
Yamamouri and Dr Webb, the 
center was opened 

The Milligan Center in Harford 
IS fully accredited by the Slate 
Board of Education of Maryland, 
the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools, and the 
Middle Stales Association of 
Colleges and Schools The center 
offers 16 hours of Bible and

extension programs at Unaka 
High School and Hampton High 

Milligan College plans to 
continue the extension campus 
program and hopefully to expand 
It Dr Yamamouri said that 
Ihere are several places 
throughout the country where 
Milligan is considering opening 
extension campuses Several 
foreign countries have made 
requests for Milligan extension 
campuses. Australia and 
Jamaica are two of the most 
likely prospects for future 
Milligan extension campuses 
abroad. This coming summer 
Milligan College and Emmanuel 
School of Religion will combine 
efforts m a series of seminars on 
missions and church growth in 
Japan and Brazil. The MiUigan 
College extension campus 
program has been ver>' suc-

Happy hunting, women! 


Faculty Wives Study Too 

by Ermine Campbell 

Some have perhaps had the 
experience of being taught by a 
mother or father or other 
relative, but three students at 
Milligan have a more unusual 
problem. They are married to 
faculty members, and their 
husbands are their advisors, and 
sometimes even their professors. 
Mrs. Delores (Mitzi)Gwaltney 
is the wife of Dr. William 
Gwaltney and the mother of 
three- Mrs, Gwaltney had 
previously attended Cincinnati 
Bible Semmary and taken some 
evening courses at the University 
of Cincinnati 

"My reason for resuming 
studying," said Mrs. Gwaltney. 
"was a feehng of intellectual 
inadequacy I experienced when 
my husband was in graduate 
school-"She continued to say that 
the people with whom they 
associated demonstrated a high 
level of intelligence and it made 
her evnious enought to try to do 
something to improve her own 
This semester Mrs Gwaltney 
is taking four classes : Crime and 
Delinquency, Cultural 
Anthropology, Introduction to 
Sociology, and French 1 

Mrs. Gwallney has had her 
husband for classes before, and 
in fact has an incomplete from 
last semester. She is. however. 
aJmost finished with the paper. 
Her reaction to having her 
husband as an academic advisor 
was that he does not put any 
pressure on her to complete her 
work. He allows her to take what 
she wants and enjoy her 

She would much prefer having 
him make her decisions for her, 
which he refuses to do. Therefore 
she accuses him of not being a 
good advisor, 

Mrs Eleanor Helsabeck, better 
known as "Cookie" or "Ma" has 
been a student at Milligan nearly 
every year since 1963, 

In previous years many of the 
classes she took were in the Bible 
area, but this year she is taking 
piano and swimming. 

She said she realizes that life is 
a process of growing and 
maturing; therefore she finds it 
necessary to discipline herself in 
all three areas of life: spirtual, 
mental and physical 

Although she has experimented 
with piano and swimming since 
childhood, she decided, "I had 
belter perfect these skills before 
It IS too late " She also stated that 
Miss Bonner and Mrs Crosswhite 
are learning patience this fall 
while she is learning to swim and 
to play the piano 

Mrs, Linda Nelson is the wife of 
Professor Ed Nelson and the 
mother of four girls, the youngest 
of which is 4 months, 

Mrs. Nelson began to take 
courses at Milligan because she 
telt that it might someday be 
necessary for her to have a 
degree She began to take courses 
last spring. However, due to the 
arrival of their new daughter, she 
is only taking piano this semester 
as an outside interest 

L^st semester Mrs Nelson 
registered for New Testament 
Survey under her husband Shen 
asked how she felt about the 

experience, her reaction was. "I 
found It to be quite challenging 
because I felt I had to make an 
"A" in his class, which meant I 
had to work as hard as I could, 
and I almost didn't make it " 

Mrs. Nelson does not mind 
having her husband as her 
academic advisor because she 
says she always ends up taking 
the courses she thinks she should 
instead of the ones he advises her 
to take The reason she gave for 
this is that he wants her to lake 
all the classes he has not, 
whether or not they are required 

She added that actually it was 
Mrs Fontaine who turns out to be 
her advisor, because she always 
goes to her for the final word.

Missions: A Step of Faith 

Milligan people involved 
themselves in missions this past 
week in a Faith Promise Rally 
sponsored by Missions Club The 
theme was "Feed my Sheep." 
Speakers for the rally, which 
lasted from October 21-23, and 
met in six sessions, were: Mr, 
Robert Reeves, director of Faith 
Promise Rallies and of the 
organization called Fellowship of 
Associates in Medical 

Evangelism: Mr Charles 
Delaney. missionary to Zambia; 
Dr Victor Rambo. missionar>- to 
India, Mr John Pierce, of the 
Milligan Board; Dr. Charles 
Taber. Professor of Missions and 
Anthropology at Milligan and 
former missionary in Africa 

The Faith Promise Rally was 
an endeavor to inspire faith- 
based committment to missions, 
especially in the area of financial 
giving. After hearing of the need, 
people could respond by 
promising money to Milligan's 
missions projects during the 
school year 1975-76, 

The specific missions 
programs to be supported are 
sponsored by Collegiate Church 
and comprise alumni 

missionaries already helped by 
the church anr^ student 
missionary internships The goal 
was S4000, based upon what many 
people may give. 

Helicon In Concert 

The HELICON staff has an- 
nounced (hat they will be spon- 
soring a "Thanksgiving Special" 
concert in Seeger Chapel on 
Saturday. November 8, 

The concert will feature 
several Milligan students, A 
large portion of the show has 
been given lo Ron Elkins. one of 
the most popular performers of 
last year's HELICON Concert 

Jan Jones, Chris Masters and 
several back-up musicians will 
also be performing. 

The proceeds will be used to 
help pay the pnnier's bill for the 
magazine HELICON, which is 
published annually by Milligan 
students, contains art. poetry and 
short-stones by Milligan students 
and faculty. 

Faith Promise Rallies were 
introduced to the Christian 
Church by Mr. Robert Reeves, 
who directs them. Milligan 
College had a Faith Promise 
Rally last year and gave $1 ,000 to 
Collegiate missionaries in 
response Christian churches and 
Bible colleges have used them 
successfully, in fact promising 
beyond the goals set for them. 
One Bible college has had a Rally 
already this fall Lincoln 
Christian College promised 
S44.000, exceeding its goal of 

What really is behind a Faith 
Promise Rally? Dr. Charles 
Taber said. "At a Faith Promise 
Rally, people promise not what 
they know they're going to have, 
but beyond that, because they 
trust that God will provide. It 
isn't just an emotional appeal to 
be soon forgotten. He said, people 
ought "not to go into it lightly." 

The Faith Promise Rally is an 
opportunity "lo raise funds in an 
intelligent, systematic way. 
instead of just when someone 
happens to hit the tear button " Ii 
calls for responsible faiih 

A thankyou is in order lo Ihe 
speakers, masters of ccremimies. 
song leaders, musicians, hnnrly 
helpers and aliendcrs for 
creating their Faith Promise 


Inside Our Walls 

From the Editor's Desk 

Sir Kenneth Strikes Again 

Security Status 

When we first came to 
Milligan. many of us were im- 
pressed by the secunty of the 
Milligan campus. We fell safe 
from Ihestreel crime epidemic m 
our cilies Even women fell 
secure in taking walks after dark 
on campus. 

This blissful situation has. 
however, deteriorated. The 
secunty of the campus has been 
broached by incidents of 
exhibitionism, vandalism, and 
evengunfu-e And these incidents 
are becoming more frequent 

A one-man secunty force is far 
too small to adequately patrol 
and protect all of a Milligan 
campus that grows ever larger 
and contains more and more 
cars The administration has a 
responsibility to maintain safety 
on campus of both people and 

Students also have a respon- 
sibility to take all reasonable 
precautions to protect them- 
selves and their property If you 
lake a walk after dark, take it 
with a friend Lock your car — 
not just the doors, spend the few 
dollars for a hood lock and a 
locked gas cap Lxxrk your room 
(doors and windows) and make 
sure your roommate and 
suitemates do the same, 

If we all work together, the 
problem with security on campus 
can be solved. So let's do it! 

The room is dark and quiel. 
The camera slowly pans the room 
as if looking for something From 
fine corner comes loud, constant 
snonng The clock is set for 6:30 
am As the minute hand creeps 
closer and closer to the six, the 
camera zooms m on the sight of a 
human being enveloped in sleep. 
Suddenly the alarm releases, 
sending this person into a frenzy 
of terror as he soon discovers 
something What is this person so 
afraid of Is it the abruptness of 
ihe alarm going off Is it fear of 
an upcoming tesf Or is it— 

As the camera turns toward the 
other end of the room, we see- 
no, it can't be— we see Sir Ken- 
neth Clark in the middle of 
filming his sequel to 

That's right . Kenneth, as 

we might call him, is filming his 
latest senes, which will t>e known 
to the world as ■'Memoirs of a 
Travelling Public Image " 
Kenneth is tired of showing the 
order and harmony of past 
civilization, his ambition now is 
10 display the disorder and 
anarchy of life in the 1970s He 
doesn't know it, of course. He 
thinks he is merely continuing the 
stoo' of eternal order and har- 

Let's turn the show over to Sir 
Kenny Brace yourself—you're 
about to embark on a column or 
two of compelte insanity. The 
year: 1975 The place: a small 
liberal arts college in eastern 

The story begins as our 
average college student, called 
by his buddy, wakes to another 
exciting and utterly thnlhng day 
of classes Us 6:30. and we're 
still in room No X in dorm No. Y. 
Kenneth begins his sequel with a 
description of the architecture, 
setting, and waste disposal 
system, Seconds turn into 
minutes and minutes turn into 

By this time, our buddy Duddy 
is sitting somewhere in Hyder's 

lecture hail He is learning all of 
which man has ever known of 
metaphysics, that is, little or 
nothing at all. Soon, a buzzer 
sounds, and Hyder Hall empties 
in a flat 47 seconds 

We follow our buddy Duddy 
into Seeger Hall, where soem- 
thing known as ■"convocation" is 
10 take place Kenny, our hero, is 
impressed by the chapel. "By 
golly," he says, "This auditorium 
is a visible result of the students' 
respect and sense of authority " 
Suddenly, a noise erupts in the 
back of the chapel, and. at the 
same time, a masked student 
flings a pie at the speaker behind 
the podium. 

A couple of hours later. Ken- 
neth IS just recovering from the 
initial shock "Up the hill." he 
says, "Ml find order and respect 
among humanity yet." Ken 
follows his bud Dud into the 
cafetena and waits in line. One 
half hour later, he is still wailing 
in line, but soon he gets through, 
Kenny approaches a chair at the 
first row of tables He pulls his 
chair out and is about to seat 
himself when he looks down and 
sees a woopie cushion, but, alas, 
it IS too late, and he sits down 
with a "woopie." 

It takes Kenneth a little longer 
to recover from his experience. 
But he is still convinced of the 
overall sense of reason instilled 
in humanity He sUrls to walk 
dov-Ti the hill when a little red 
wagon shoots by him. And 
another. And another! One of the 
wagons hits a curb, sending its 
occupant careening over a ditch. 
by a tree, and into a bush. Ken- 
neth runs to him and. with a look 
of worry, asks him why he did 
that. "It's fun," came the an- 

This exp)erience sends Kenny's 
mind into a relapse from which it 
does not recover until late 
evening- He follows our buddy 
Duddy into the dorm lobby, 
where there is sUnding room 
only. It seems that something

called the "World Series" is on 
Ken is trying to understand why 
all these people are watching this 
Luis Tiant, when one of the 
people in the cow pasture hits this 
leather ball. As soon as this 
happens, a monstrous amount of 
stomping and cheering ensues. 

Suddenly, a student by the 
name of Buff Walker runs inside 
the lobby and very calmly tells 
his fellow students that some 
people had been caught allegedly 
stealing eight-tracks out of cars. 
The lobby emptied, quickly, to 
say the least, and everybody ran 
into their cars and drove to the 
laundromat. When they arrived. 
Dan Harding was standing with a 
male and a female of the species 
Onginally. there had been two 
males and a female, but the one 
male asked Dan Harding if he 
was a Milligan track star. "Not 
particularly," replied Dan. and 
on that note, the male took off 
toward the maintenance 
buildings The sheriff's deputy 
arrived, and, while waiting for a 
wrecker to arrive to low the 
culpnts' car away, the students 
took off in hot pursuit of the 
fugitive. All efforts seemed to be 
in vain until Tony Rousey and 
John Lawson were walking along 
Alf Taylor Road They smelled 
alcoholic beverage, and realized 
that their man was somewhere 
near Standing in the road, they 
heard a cough from the woods. 
John went up a hill along a 
driveway while Tony stayed 
below They worked their way to 
the middle and literally stumbled 
over their man. who was sleeping 
peacefully, allegedly after 
having passed out 

The story you nave read is true. 
The names have not been 
changed to protect the innocent. 
As for Sir Kenneth Gark, he 
became completely disillusioned 
as to the goodness of humanity 
and caught the next plane for the 
South Pole

Activism as a Way of Life 

Six years ago on the steps of the 
Michigan State Capitol in Lan- 
sing I joined eight thousand other 
Vietnam war protesters in- 
cluding Michigan's Senator 
Phillip Hart- Holding part of an 
eight foot banner and joining in 
the chanting and clapping, I 
finally achieved my goal: I was 
an activist 1 had made my stand 
and was proud to be appearing in 
most of the pictures that covered 
the front pages of many Michigan 
newspapers the next day. 

That was six years ago. Today 1 
am a passive follower of the 
news, too busy to gel involved. 
Yel I slill oppose the status quo; 
there are slill causes lo fight for 
Social injustice, pollution, 
poverty, economics, and political 
corruption are slill m need of 
much revision, and only an ac- 
tivist can change things 

After three years at Milligan 
my impression of ihe typical 

Milligan sludenl i sthal he or she 
IS generally a passive talker and 
seldom an activist Can you 
remember the planned walkout 
of convocation over the explusion 
fo three girls for sipping wine? 
Can you remember the chaos 
raised when it was announced 
that some faculty members were 
lo be dismissed because of lack of 
funds'^ Milligan still has some 
activists, but they have been 
silenced by the apathy they met 
and Ihe oppositon they en-

After you are well informed, 
contact the nearest activist group 
and find out if you can fit in; if 
you fit into this group, fine. If not. 
look for another until you find a 
way 10 really get involved. 

Later, attend a rally, march, 
sit-in. or meeting and feel the

You may not agree with what

Worrell and Winning 

by Ozell Ward 

Are there any among us who 
can fall to conjure up some Image 
of a coach'' Is he the guy who 
says "we" when his team wms, 
but says "they" when his team 
loses? Perhaps to the athlete 
coach represents the persistent 
force that compels effort when 
there seems to be none left. To 
the fan coach is the person who 
masterfully, or idiotically, 
directs a team through the 
season We can only guess what a 
coach represents to the people 
that write his paycheck 

Regardless of our prejudices or 
misconceptions, coaches are a 
valid aspect of today's organized 
sports, As we see the world 
displaying an increased interest 
in individuals, it is not surprising 
that this interest can also be seen 
within the coaching profession. 
As the basketball season ap- 
proaches we again begin to 
concentrate attention upon the 
people involved in what has 
become one of Milligan's major 
intercollegiate sports Phil 
Worrell, ps chief mentor of 
Milligan's basketball program, 
has probably been viewed in 
many aspects during the past few 

When talking with Coach 
Worrell one begins to sec that a 
coach's responsibility en- 
compasses a broad area Worrell 
expresses a sense of respon- 
sibility 10 the school, the players, 
and the sport- 
Coach Worrell views basketball 
as one of the prine outlets of 

student activity One of the chief 
aims of the bakelball program is 
(0 act as an "object of iden- 
tification for the students and the 
school " This IS best ac- 
complished through maintaining 
the teams competitiveness In the 
SIX years that Coach Worrell has 
been at Milhgan the basketball 
program has enjoyed several 
winning seasons 

The success of the basketball 
program has in some measure 
resulted from a successful 
recruitment program 
Recruitment is deemed an im- 
portant active part of the overall 
program which, through 
"prayer, good luck, and hard 
work, has made a winning 
program," The success of most 
recruitment programs rely upon 
well endowed budgets. However, 
this has not been the case at 
Milligan. "Many schools 
Milligan's size have twice the 
scholarships and four times the 
budget, yet we do compete with 
them — and oftentimes suc-

program? For Worrell winning is 
oneaspect of success. It certainly 
helps the team's image and 
procures additional fan support. 
It also aids recruitment because 
"good quality players want to be 
involved in winning programs " 

"If all 1 did was teach an in- 
dividual to throw the bail through 
the hoop. I would feel I had not 
done my job." That statement is 
indicative of the scope of 

responsihility which Coach 
Worrell feels toward his ball 
players, "Development of 
character and establishment of 
Christian principles", are goals 
which Worrell strives to instill in 
his players The role of the 
ithlete involves "discipline, hard 
work, and frustration." This Is 
seen to be vital in training the 
athlete for "the game of life." 

As in any profession there is 
constant demand for a coach to 
be aware of new developments 
within his field. Coach Worrell is 
no exception Basketball is a 
dynamic sporl which involves 
much studying and planning. 
Coach Worrell vie\Vs it as "a 
world within itself, which 
demands that you be informed," 

Through a commitment to the 
school, the players, and the 
profession Phil Worrell has 
developed a basketball program 
in which the Milligan family can 
be proud There is room for 
debate as to the role of Worrell's 
philosophy in the success of 
basketball here at Milligan, but it 
IS doubtful that there can be any 
argument against it having 
played some part which must at 
least be closely examined. 

What of the outlook for the 
upcoming season'' "In looking at 
the players as persons and 
looking at the ability they 
possess, I predict an exciting 
season," says Coach Worrell, 
Add to that the quality of the 
coaching staff and he might be 
more than correct 

Fall Tennis Practice 

The women's tennis team will 
close its fall season with a match 
against Tusculum on the 21st 
The women are winless but not 
losers Most of the girls playing 
this year have never played 
competition tennis before, and 
enjoyed the new experience. 

Coaching the team this year is 
Miss Patricia Bonner She had 
this to say about the season; 

"This fall season was good 
practice and experience. In the 
fall I want the girls to con- 

centrate on stroking right and 
thinking about what they are 
doing In the spring we'll con- 
centrate on winning." 

The girls playing are: Cindy 
Brady. Sandy Pierce. Belinda 
Brown, Jill Healey, KaLhy Hardy. 
Roxanne Sandlin. Jane Meade. 
Debbie Fraiish, and Tammy 

Their spring season will be a 
challenge to see if they are able to 
apply what Ihey learned this fall.

Some good lines do emerge, 
usually from George as he ac- 
cesses his predicament. His first 
encounter with Jimmy produces, 
"He just asked me for my wife's 
hand in marriage!" Admitting 
his guilt in the failing marriage 
as well as accidentally shooting 
Jimmy. George surmises, "mine 
was a crime of passion, the lack 
of it" Roberta also has her better 
script moments as she confronts 
a departing Jimmy ulth. "I just 
left my husand to spend five

these are the betler tines, the 
others are saturated with syrup. 
As the play closes. George, 
overcome with insight, remarks. 
"When a woman stops loving you. 
she stops loving you"

Although the script is a poor

the sheer exuberence of the cast

As one cast member asserted. 
"The audience must let them- 
selves enjoy this show," With 
such fortitude exhibited, who

In the bicentennial year it is 
appropriate that the musical 
"George M." is being performed 
in American theaters this season, 

Opening October 17, "George 
M" is running through October 
25 at the Johnson City Com- 
munity Theater, 

"George M" is the musical 
biography of song writer, im- 
pressionado George M Cohan, 
Deemed the "Yankee Doodle 
Kid". Cohan was bom on July 4, 
1878, The show follows Cohan 
through his vaudeville days, 
Broadway successes and 
frustrations, and return to the 
stage in 1933 in "I'd Rather Be 
Right" Usually arrogant, Cohan 
asserted that he chose the stage 
life because "I have something 
this country needs" 

The staging of "George M." is 
a collosal affair Because the 
Johnson City Community 
Theater lacks the natural assets 
for large production numbers, 
the company endeavors suffer 
considerably Blocking for this 
show is done in basic straight 
lines and diagonals. Con- 
sequently, choreography is 
limited and repetitious dunng 
such big numbers as "Give My 
Regards To Broadway," The 
company resembles a downstage 
choir in concert dunng many 
songs Improvement is made in 
the staging of "Grand Old Flag" 
when full stage dimension is 

Small ensemble numbers are 
nolicably more polished. "Push 
Cart Song" executed during a 
screaming rehersal fit of Cohan, 
achieves the desired affect quite 
aptly "Harigan" also offers 
diversity, sung during a staged 
fist fight between Cohan and Mr, 

The first act of the Johnson City 
production lacks unifying energy 
Lines are losi in the fast 
deliveries, Vocal entrances are 
flaccid and erratic Ridgidity 
abounds during dance interludes. 
Insipid expressions hinder the 
dramatic involvement 
necessary. Contorted grimaces of 
some cast members cause one to 
wonder if they have just en- 
countered the ghost of George 
Cohan or some other apparation, 

An evident energy rise tran- 
sforms the show in the second 
act, A slower pace erases some of 
ty.e tension of earlier sequences. 
Articulated lines increase plot 
stamina. Vast improWsations are 
not extant and cast members 
retain their agaped expression. 

Fortunately, individual efforts 
excell for those who assert any 
significant ability 

No doubt about it. Bobby 
McKinney is perfectly cast as 
George M, Delivery of McKin- 
ney's lines reflects the arrogant, 
dauntless character of George, 
Gauntly reclined atop a piano 
during one scene, McKinney 
appears disgustingly com- 
fortable and quite at home 
Because George ages during the 
show from 15 to late 50's. a more 
defined development may have 
further enhanced the charac- 

Lesser roles inlimidale the 
larger supporting roles 

Karen Brewster provndes some 
of the better moments of the first 
act. Equipped with adequate 
vocal quality, movement, and 
improvisations, Ms Brewster 
excells in "George M" as the 
first wife. Agnes, 

Dick Major explicitly 
demonstrates his ability lo 
procure depth in his three bit 
parts in "George M." Always in 
control of his characterizations. 
Major regresses from a mature 
producer, Beeman to the youthful 
secretary The transition from 
roles is remarkably distinct in 
mood and gesture during Dick 
Major's performance in George

Of the larger supporting roles. 
Tom Brojles deserves mention 
for precisely executed dancing 
and general showmanship. 

Although the Community 
Theater's production of "George 
M." is scrappy and erratic, the 
George M. spirit endures. As the 
taped voice of the real George 
Cohan closes the show, one 
readily agrees that the Yankee 
Doodle Kid had something

Orphans "Kidnapped" 

by California Court 

LOS ANGELES. Ca. - Dr. W. 
Stanley Mooneyham, president of 
World Vision Inlemalional, today 
descnbed a decision by a Los 
Angeles Superior Court ordering 
20 Cambodian orphans seized and 
removed from their adoptive 
homes as "sirange. shocking and 
unprecedented '■ 

The Cambodian orphans came 
to the attention of the courts when 
Richard Scolt. a medical doctor 
with the Los Angeles Department 
of Health was at the LA Airport 
April 12 as part of a medical team 
to examine the arriving orphans 
Scott subsequently became in- 
terested in adopting one of the 
children. Trop Ven 

However, the religious ciiteria 
of Family Ministries convinced 
Scott and his wife that they would 
not qualify as adoptive parents, 
TheScotts never started adoption 
proceedings for Trop Ven. but 
filed a religious discrimination 
suit against the adoption agency 

Their suit also asked the court 
to stop Family Ministries from 
requiring religious affiliations 
from couples seeking to adopt the 
other children Most of the 
children have now been placed in 
permanent homes, awaiting final 
adoption proceedings 

"When I accepted respon- 
sibility for the welfare of those 
children with the approval of the 
Cambodian government." he 
continued. "World Vision became 

their legal guardian and parent. 
As such, we have a constitutional 
right to release those children for 
adoption through any agency we 

The Court seems to have 
ignored testimony by nurse 
Sandra Menz. who received the 
orphaned children, and the last 
head of the. Cambodian govern- 
ment. General Sak Sutsakahn 
which proved conclusively World 
Vision's legal right to stand in 
place of the parents, 

Mooneyham said that for the 
Court to order the children turned 
over to the Los Angeles County 
Department of Adoptions is "one 
of the most flagrant violations" 
of the constitution ever seen in 
this state. 

Speaking at a press conference 
in the L.A, Press Club. 
Mooneyham announced that 
World Vision will counter Ihe 
Superior Court's ruling with a 
lawsuit of Its own The suit will 
claim that Judge Lester Olson's 
decision violates World Vision's 
constitutional guarantee of 
religious freedom under Ihe First 
Amendment Also, that the 
judge's action is a denial of World 
Vision's equal protection of the 
laws as guaranteed by the 
Fourteenth Amendment, 

In addition. Family Ministries 
will appeal the Superior Court 
ruling to the California Court of 

The well-known missionary 
statesman said that Friday's 
decision by the Court is a sword 
at the heart of every private 
religious adoption agency — 
Catholic. Protestant, Jewish or 
any other faith — involved in 
intercountry adc^lions. It must 
not be allowed to stand, he slated 

He pointed out that the adop- 
tion services section of the 
California Department of Health 
testified in court that World 
Vision had the authority to 
request Family Ministries to 
place the orphans in Protestant 
homes. The office of the State 
Attorney General concurred with 
these findings. Despite that 
expert testimony, the Court ruled 
that World Vision did not have 
that authority and that Family 
Ministries violated the law by 
complying with World Vision's 

"However disguised by judicial 
rhetoric," said Mooneyham. "the 
Court has in effect kidnapped 
these children without due 
process. Imagine the hue and cry 
which would have been raised . . . 
if World Vision had brought these 
children to the U.S. and aban- 
doned them to the stale! How 
strange it is, then, that by Court 
order we are to be prevented 
from doing what we are legally 
and morally responsible to do."

As if the United States hasn't 
had enough upheavals, geologists 
think we may be in for some 
volcanic eruptions during the last 
half of the century on the West 
Coast and in Hawaii, reports the 
National Geographic Society, 

After a 125-year silence. Mount 
Baker in Washington is clearing 
its massive throat Steam has 
been boiling out of its 1.600-foot- 
wtde Sherman Crater since last 
March, according to the US 
Geological Survey By July, 
thousands of openings called 
fumaroles had burned through 
the surrounding rock, adding 
their steam to the cloud ob- 
scuring the mountain's 10,778- 
fool peak- 

Sci enlists observing the 
reactivated volcano say this 
could be the prelude to a major 
eruption But Dr Dwight R 
Crandall of the Geological Sur- 
vey's Denver office admits thai 
observers simply don't know 
what will happen next 

Glaciologist Dr Mark Meier 
sees danger in a lake that formed 
as Ihe steam melts the ice cavern 
in the crater If the ice wall 
containing the lake collapses, he 
explains, it would send floods of 
debris-laden water down the 
slope and could trigger 

The Cascade Mountain Range 
running through Washington. 
Oregon, and northern California 
contains other volcanoes capable 
of flaring into renewed activity, 
reported the Geological Survey 
earlier this year In addition, 
active volcanoes in both .Alaska 
and Hawaii also hold the 
potential for future eruptions. 
Mount Saint Helens and Lassen 
Peak, also in the Cascades, last 
erupted a little more than a 
century ago. Dr Donald R 
Mullineaux and Meyer Rubin, 
along with Dr Crandall. recently 
surveyed Mount Saint Helens, 
and (hey predict that it will ex- 
plode again within the next few 

Mount Saint Helens was last 
active in 1857. but Ihe geologists 
say the mountain's 37.000 year 
history establishes it as the most 
active volcano in the continental 
United Slates They note that 
while the 9.677-foot peak may 
remain dormant for up to five 

centuries, its record shows the 
mountain usually blows its top at 
least once in every 100 to 200 

Hawaii has five volcanoes, but 
little danger is foreseen irom 
Kohala or Mauna Kea. neither of 
which has erupted in thousands of 
years. Elsewhere on Hawaii. 
Kilauea belched smoke and 
white-hot rock for some six hours 
last December sending streams 
of molten lave coursing more 
than seven miles down its side 

But potentially the most 
dangerous of Hawaii's volcanoes 
IS Mauna Loa There have been 
several huge laval flows from the 
13.680-fool mountain in modern 
times. Covering nearly all the 
southern half of the island. 
Mauna Loa erupted for 12 hours 
on the night of July 4th. A chain of 
fissures along its backbone sent 
plumes of hot lava nearly lOO feet 
into the air in a fiery curtain that 
was spectacular, but caused no 

In every 20-year period since 
1830. areas ranging from 25 to 75 
squre miles have been inundated 
with lava from Mauna Loa and 
Kilauea. and geologists expect 
this pattern to persist. In i960 an 
eruption covered 2.500 acres with 
creeping lava and burned and 
crushed the village of Kapoho.

Faith Promise Termed Success 

by Chris Taber 

While the Failh Promise Rally 
is just another school lunction 
done and gone for most people at 
Milligan, it will be remembered 
by those individuals who were 
inspired by it to make a com- 
mitment to missions. Fewer than 
fifty people attended its volun- 
lary sessions, and yet these few 
promised 52608 to Milligan — 
sponsored missions for the school 
year 75-76. There is no tally for 
other kinds of commitments 
made, but there are comments 
from some of those who were 
Linda Gindlesperger said the 
Rally challenged you "not to 
ihink so much of yourself but to 
think of others" and that the 
selfless altitude of the speakers 
"showed in their talking'.' In order 
lo do a 'faith promise", you have 
to think of others." 

Greg Johnson thought "the 
Faith Promise Rally was a good 
opportunity for students to meet 
and become acquainted with 
missionaries, and the importance 
of missions. The need is great, 
and the Rally allows us the op- 
portunity to share in world 

Becky Johnson said, "I found 
the Failh Promise Rally lo be 
inspring for me as a Christian. In 
ihe future," she suggested, "I 
would like to hear from the work 
ihal Ihe Failh Promise program 
is supporting " 

The Faith Promise Flally met 
in six sessions from October 21- 
23, The speakers were Mr Robert 
Reeves. Mr, Charles Delaney. 
Dr Victor Rambo, Mr, John 
Pierce, and Dr. Charles Taber. 
Their theme was "Feed my 

Mr Robert Reeves appealed to 
everyone in each session to pray, 
"Lord, what do you want me to 
do?" He confronted them with 
Ihe historic failure of the 
Christian church to be concerned 
with missions and the con- 
sequences of that failing, namely. 
Ihe weakening of the Church and 
the adoption of other ways than 
Ihe way of Christ to meet peoples' 

Mr Charles Delaney urged his 
audience lo share the "Good 
News" instead of hoarding il, 
using 11 Kings 6 and 7 for his text. 

Alive, best describes Dr, Victor 
Rambo, With great humor and 
love, he shared his own story of 

missionary dedication and pled 
for total commitment to God, As 
a medical student, he had an 
irrational fear of the tsetse fly 
which caused him to promise to 
go anywhere for the Lord except 
where the tsetse fly was. He had 
lo come lo trust in the sufficiency 
of God's love and offer total 
commitment to him. He 
reminded his listeners that Christ 
came lo heal bodies as well as 
souls, and with great emotion, 
expressed the need for 
missionary eye surgeons. 

Mr John Pierce also urged the 
students to commit themselves 
unreser\'edly to God and thereby 
also learn true happiness. 

Dr, Charles Taber concluded 
the Rally with a call to 
missionarj' preparedness. It is 
not enough to just want to share 
Ihe Gospel with people of other 
lands A missionary must be 
Irained to understand culture, so 
that he or she might be sensitive 
to the real needs of the people in 
ministering to them. 

Faith Promise geared itself 
primarily to monetary com- 
mitment. Half of the S2608 will be 
given to Collegiate Church to be 
distributed among specific 

alumni missionaries and the 
other half will support summer 
missionary interns. 

Collegiate Church will be 
helping three missionary 
couples According to Mr, Roy 
Hampton, its Pastor, these 
missionaries were selected to 
"represent as broad a scope as 
possible" in missions, Dr, and 
Mrs, Scott Bartchy were chosen 
for their involvement in Christian 
scholarship at the University of 
Tuebingen. Germany. Through 
the European Evangelical 
Society. Dr. Bartchy and others 
hold a Chair in this university, 
which is a center for theological 
study in Europe. Dr and Mrs, 
Dennis Pruett were selected 
because they combine the healing 
of the body as well as the spirit in 
their hospital ministry in 

Ai a time when Bill and Betty 
Turner were seeking God's 
direction for effective service. 
Hiroshiman Christians requested 
that they be missionaries to 
Hiroshima, The Turners went 
and are involved in a thriving 
ministry' that includes a school. 
Collegiate Church will be sup- 
porting them. 

Why should a college church 
support missions? Mr. Hampton 
said that "as an arm of the 
universal Church, we as a local 
congregation must be just as 
conscientious in our stewardship 
as any other congregation 
because we are either a part of 
the Church or we're only fooling 
ourselves in imitation." 

Summer Inlerroships pro\'ide 
an opportunity for students who 
want to be short-term 
missionaries to receive some 
financial aid. Any student who 
feels God's leading in this area 
may qualify. Possible programs 
for involvement are His Place, 
which is inner city work. Camp 
Shiloh, which is a summer camp 
program in the New York City 
area. Grundy Mountain Mission 
School, Cookson Hills Christian 
Children's Schools, and teaching 
English in Japan. Missions Club 
will inform the campus more 
specifically about these and other 
■programs. Such work demands a 
helping kind of role. 

For those who promised money 
lo missions through Milligan. 
payments may be made in the 
Dean's office or to Mr. Hampton. 

Give Liberty / Give Life 

A major evangelistic thnjst 
was begun Octotier 1, 1975 by the 
National Church Growth Center 
in Washington, DC, The cam- 
paign, entitled: "Give Liberty, 
Give Life, a bicentennial venture 
in evangelism," is chaired by 
Paul Benjamin and is scheduled 
to close July 3. 1977. 

The effort was developed as a 
result of the feeling that America 
is one of the great mission fields 
of our time The objectives are 3- 
fold: individual growth, 
congregational vigor, and 
national numerical gains. 

,^tBTy G^ 





Three out of every four homes in America are unchurched! 45 million children are not 
part of any Sunday School! These staggering statistics remind us that America is one of 
the great mission fields of our times. 

Dr Robert Fife. Milligan 
professor, presently on leave of 
absence, is one of twenty 
members of the National 
Steering Committee In addition 
to the National Committee, there 
are 10 special committees and 47 
slate committees. 

The weekly magazine, 
"Christian Standard," publishes 
the number of baptisms, mission 
and ministerial recruils and new 
congregations that are a result of 
the campaign, along with the 
goals that will hopefully be 
reached by 1977. 

A Faith: Thousands of convinced Christians in CC/CC have found the basic meaning for their life 

in Jesus Christ. They worship and give regularly and in many instances, tliey are yearning 
for involvement in the Christian life at a deeper level. These are Christians who are will- 
ing to respond to commitment in evangelism and teaching. 

A Strategy: Current congregational programming often follows the fallacy of gathering the saints 
without involving them in activities which result in outreach. The Bicentennial emphasis 
will be a united effort to help the restoration movement mobilize for action evangelism. 

A Time: Many students of .American society arc convinced that "the time is ri^t" for evangelism, 

-fn attiludr, often unstated, is that Americans have "lost something" along the way. 
That "something" is fivqucntly tied to longings which have distinctive religious overtones. 
A feeling pei-sists that .Americans have tried to live by "bread alone" and have 
failed. While strongly eschewing the concept of a '*ci\ il religion," at the same time, it ap- 
pears thai Christians would be ver>' unwise to fail to move aggressively at the opportune 
liiom^-nl when many Americans are searching for deeper values (Luke 16:8). 


lege Report Stirs Controversy 

The National Sludeiil 

Educational Fund is distributing 
a report outlining the student- 
related policy recommendations 
of the Carnegie Commission on 
Higher Education It is written by 
Scot Wren, a student at the 
University of California at Davis, 
for the use of other college 
students. NSEF is distributing 
the book nationally with the in- 
tention of provoking a debate and 
reaction from college students 
around the country. 

The Commission found that 
"there are many barriers to 
complete equality of access to a 
college education A lack of 
money, remoteness 'from a 
college or university campus, 
inadequate information, 
discrimination, rigid entrance 
requirements, or insufficient pre- 
college preparation have made 
education afl^r high school 
inaccessible lo many people. . 

"Of these barriers, family 
income is the greatest This 
problem led the Commission ol 
propose Ihe establishment of 
Educational Opportunity Centers 
which serve areas with major 
concentrations of low-income 
families. Wren recommended 
that college students be utilized 
as recruiters because they can 
give a "valuable personalized 
view of college to high school 

While the Commission was 
opposed lo required college at- 
tendance, il was in favor of 
"Universal access," Under 
universal access, every person 
who wants to attend college is 
guaranteed a place in an in- 
stitution of higher education. 

Wren directed some of his 
suggestions at teaching methods 
He urges differentiation of in- 
structional styles and techniques 
The Commission stresses that the 
approach should bo ". not of 
what all students know but of how 
all sutdents may be helped lo 
confront large bodies of 
knowledge and large issues." 

The Commission realized that 
changes are likely to be ac- 
companied by controversy in any 
established institution, and 
therefore encouraged individuals 
to undertake them in a process 
that involves broad discussion 
and consent. Wren notes that 
"constantly changing conditions 
and emerging interests make on- 
going discussions of reform 
especially necessary " He also 
points out that "only through a 
continual re-evaluation of their 
role can colleges and universities 
hope to ensure their future 
vitality and responsiveness " 

The Commission supported 
greater student participation in 
those areas where students have 

the interest and the competence 
lo contribute and where they will 
assume responsibility One 
example noted by Wren is thai 
"student governments should 
have significant influence on 
student disciplinary matters 
"Several procedures for selec- 
ting students to campus-wide 
committees were recommended, 
but the emphasis was thai 
regardless of the selection 
process, representation of 
students is the most important

Sutton Plans Bazaar 

Sutton Hall will host a bazaar 
during their Christmas open 
house December 8 in the Sutton 
Lobby The dorm council has

with a few other items for sale 
will kick off the bazaar on the 8th, 
The main day for the bazaar wilt 
be December 13 — ihat following 
Saturday Also any items left will 
be sold.during the noon meal on 
the Hth, 

The goal of all this hard work is 
lo buy new furniture for the 
lobby, Mrs Robinson, head 
Resident for Sutton, said, "The 
girls would like to improve the 
appearance of their lobby. Any 
visitors and all people on cam- 
pus, one time or another come 
through there Sutton lobby needs 
a face lift and a homier 
atomosphere " 

All the items are made or 
donated mainly by the residents 

in Sutton Hall. Carolyn 
Edgington is in charge of the 
Bazaar. She said, "there are 
really going to be some nice 
things for sale as Christmas gifts 
and at really good prices." 

The new furniture is expensive 
and Sutton Hall will appreciate 
any donated items that would 
help raise this money. Ever>' one 
IS invited and encouraged to take 
advantage of this opportunity and 
help Sutton Hall. 

Dress Code Change 

Pardee Residents Complain 

Effective immediately the 
following changes will be made in 
Ihe dress code* Longer shorts 
may be worn by either men or 
women to the cafeteria for 
Saturday meals and all evening 

Students are reminded in 
dressing for activities which take 
place off campus thai Ihey should 

dress in keeping with the stan- 
dards of good taste for the local 
community. We would also like to 
call lo the attention of students 
that"* casual attire is inap- 
propriate for concerts, lectures, 
recitals, and other special 
programs of a more formal

•Veal Parmesan 

The men in Pardee Hall have a 
few problems with their living 
conditions Rats have been found, 
plaster has fallen off the walls, 
windows have been broken and 
not fixed and there are problems 
in the bathrooms. 

Rats from eight to ten inches 
have been seen in Pardee Men 
from Orkin were called out and 
they distributed rat poison, but it 
was not effective, Mr Moore was 
informed of this and he said Mr 
Kyle will put D-Con out, but to 
date nothing else has been done to 
solve the problem 

Residents of Pardee have 
complained about plaster falling 
off Ihe walls in their room. Dale 
Clayton, head resident of Pardee 
says thai to his knowledge 
nothing has been planned to 
correct this problem 

The residents on the first floor 
also have complained about a 
window broken in the bathroom. 
On cold nights they have lo freeze 
to go to the bathroom, Clayton 

says the problem has been 
reported to the maintenance 
department, but to date nothing 
has been done 

The maintenance men did 
come and fix a bathroom on one 
side of the hall, but presently the 
bathroom on the other side is 
acting up 


Clayton gives three reasons for 
Pardee being in such bad 
physical shape Number one: the 
maintenance department is 
understaffed Number two: the 
men in the maintenance 
department do no know how to fix 
things the way they should be 
fixed, Numt)er three: the men in 
Pardee sometimes are negligent 
and create the problem again 
after the maintenance men fix it, 
so the maintenance men become 
reluctant to go there 

Clayton has tried to make the 
living conditions in Pardee 
better Pardee now has room 
inspections to create a cleaner 
atmosphere. This will discourage 

by Kevin Bowers 

the growing population of 
roaches and rats which infest 
Pardee. If the room fails in- 
spection twice in one semester 
they will be out of the dorm 

Clayton believes the dorm is 
much closer knit since he came 
as head of Pardee in January of 
this year. Clayton believes he has 
a good bunch of men, and 
believes the men want Pardee to 
be a good dorm 

Clayton enjoys Pardee from 
the standpoint that he likes the 
men and likes working \*ith 
them But he does not like the 
living conditions which the dorm 

The residents of Pardee have 
their complaints about the living 
conditions, but by in large seem 
toenjoy the dorm. They state that 
Iheir big open halls and open 
staircase give Pardee a feeling of 
being more in a home than in a 
motel They feel that ihey have a 
good relationship with the other 
residents in the dorm They also 
stale a reason why they like 
Pardee is because it's in the 
center of the campus. Everything 
seems lo revolve around it.

admitted that they had violated 
Ihe use-of-alcohol rule Without 
this admission there would have 
been no proof Thewomen were 
also late for curfew and the one 
who had consumed a glassful of 
the wine so feared the punish- 
ment for breaking curfew that 
she stayed the night in the home 
of a local family with whom she 
was acquainted 

Before the committee had 
finished deliberating, before they 
had sent a report to the proper 
administrator, this administrator 
had his secretary type letters to 
each woman informing here of 
her guilt and suspension from 
school for the period of one year. 
Indeed, the committee did find 
Ihe women guilty but instead 
unanimously voted to place two 
of the women on probation and 
suspend the other for only one 

Later that night three men 
returned to their dorm drunk. Not 
one was suspended though all 
three were discovered The next 
Tuesday, with rumors of a 
Convocation walkout in the air. 
an administrator stood before the 
student body and defended the 
expulsion as an act to strengthen 
the morality of the women 
Quoting a letter written 
Ihercafter, "Needless to say, 
these events have damaged the 
morale of many students and nol 
a few faculty members " The 
only lesson from the explosion 
was "don't tell the truth," 

The same year dorm meetings 
were held telling the men not ic 
drink and. expecially nol to get 
caught All the men had to do to 
not get caught was to come in late 
or not at all The women's curfew 
posed a problem for them.

collegiate athletic teams were 
caught drinking, but were 
punished only by extra exercises. 
But not one man was expelled 
or suspended Why rehash these 
incidents'' Because ihetr bitter 
memor>' was the driving force 
behind the letter sent to the 
Department of Health, 
Education, and Welfare, These 
events are not rumors. Each can 
be documented. 

At the beginning of last year, 
Milligan still prohibited women 
from smoking. This fact was 
discovered by HEW employees 
who were examining the college 
catalogue. Now why should HEW 
be interested in Milligan s 
smoking rules'' 

There is a federal law. Title IX. 
which forbids federal support to 
institutions practicing 
discrimination on the basis of 
sex. Milligan was definitely 
practicing sex discrimination. 
The federal government was 
financing Milligan students, and 
the college in turn, through Work 
Study. Basic Education 
Opportunity Grants, GI bill. 
National Defense Student Loans, 
and Guaranteed Student Loans to 
the tune of S300,00 per year, four 
times the amount given by the 
Christian Churches 

The college could have 
removed the privilege of smoking 
from the men, and risk a pull-out 
of male students. In a committee- 
of-the-whole action, the Student 
Council opposed such action by 
the margin of 14-12^ The college 
could have lost the funds by 
ignoring the HEW directive The 
college could have removed the 
prohibition from women and risk 
disfavor with Ihe Churches The 
college could have geared up for 
a legal battle with HEW Or. the 
college could have let the dorms 
choose their own smoking rules 
The college chose the latter. 

HEW did nothing about curfew 
simply because curfew was nol 
He<:rrihed in the catalogue, and 
thus Ihey did not know about it. 
Some campus women, still bitter 
over the events of 1973, were 
offended that nothing was done 
about curfew. At this juncture. 
Dan Pummill was drafted to 
carry the ball As Student Council 
President, he was the one official 
representative of the student 
body The Student Council had 
supported the abolition of curfew 
and equalization of the rules. 
Pummill became convinced of 
his responsibility to speak out for 
the on-campus women 

Because HEW did nol know 
about curfew, Pummill had an 
"ace in the hole" which former 
members of Ihe Student Council 
Executive Committee en- 
couraged him to use to augment 
Ihe students leverage in school 
affairs These same advisors 
later lamented thai Pummill had 
"played his ace too soon" 
Pummill refused to use black- 

by John Ray 

Together with other concerned 
students. Pummill drafted a 
letter to HEW, The letter was 
written as a concerned student, 
not in his capacity as President of 
Student Council, He held the 
letter for more than a month 
awaiting any sign of a softer 
stance on curfew from the ad- 
ministration. Instead, he faced a 
wall of Dale Carnegie smiles. 

Pummill mailed the letter. The 
contents revealed only the 
existance of a curfew on women. 
The Office of Civil Rights in- 
vestigated for themselves and 
discovered Ihe sign-in and sign- 
out requirements, rules for 
unlocking dormitory doors, 
' unequal enforcement of over- 
night visitation rules, and 
disciplinary actions against 
women violating curfew. 

HEW directed the college "to 
provide, within 15 days following 
receipt of our letter, detailed 
changes proposed or im- 
plemented to alleviate these 
'differences based on sex." In 
addition, HEW informed Pum- 
mill of the directive. 

Within three days. Pummill 
had the signatures of more than 
half the student body on a petition 
calling for the end of curfew. A 
few other students petitioned for 
school- wide curfew. A third 
group. considerably less 
emoiionally concerned about 
curfew, sent a letter to the ad- 
ministration and denouncing 
those who requested federal 

In reply lo HEW, the school 
stated ihat the curfew was 
designed lo protect female 
students in ihe face of inadequate 
protection by local law en- 
forcement agencies. With llie 
same argument. Eastern Ken- 
lucky University had won a 
previous court battle with HEW, 
It IS significant that Milligan is 
under the jurisdiction of the same 
Federal District Court. 

HEW did not like the reply A 
recent 20-day compliance 
deadline has passed and no 
changes have been made. 
Apparently the college has opted 
for a court battle that could easily 
cost S70.000, 

More is at slake here than 
women's lib. Should a community

Sick Minds, Dangerous Guns 

Editors note: in the early 
iiorning hours of November 3. a 
■ion, was shol on the lawn between 
Pardee and Webb Halls. The 
STAMPEDE IS concerned about 
this action on two counts. One is 
the fact that on this campus there 
is a student walking around with 
„ mind sick enough to conceive 
faking the life of an innocent and 
friendly animal which many 
other students treated as a 
friend, Secondly, there is simply 
no excuse, and in fact great 
danger, in allowing students to 
keep firearms of any type in their 
dormitory or their car. This time 
il was a dog. Maybe next time 
this sick mind will attempt more 
challenging game. Below are the 
thoughts of three students on the 

A lot of things happened around 
Milligan College campus Sunday

matching T,V.. some were out to 
Tiovies. many were getting back 
rom evening church. Somebody

morning between Webb and 

Pardee, you missed the sport It's 
the spori of dog shooting Yes. in 
ihe proud tradition of dinks, red 
wagon races, and yoyos, an 
anonymous student has started 
this fall-j novelty sport — Dog 

It's very simple Vou only need 
three ingredients a small caliber 
rifie, a whirung dog. and a 
sadistic sense of humor. 

Picture yourself on the hunt. It 
IS late on a chilly night You've 
just tucked yourself into bed and 
suddenly you hear a hungry voice 
howling in Ihe darkness outside 
Ynu quickly reach for your gun. 
loading ever so quietly as not to 
let the prey know of your in- 
tentions. You fell the blood surge 
to your brain as you prepare to 
squeeze the trigger. Perhaps the 
thought comes to mind of 
somebody you'd like to be there 
I o see you proving your manhood. 

Then it is over A crumpled 
black and red bloodied mass lay 
in the grass before your bedroom 
window You say your prayers, 
and go to bed. with thoughts of 
sugar plums dancing in your 
disgusting head 

It may not have happened 
exactly this way What we do 
know, though, is that at 12:30 
Monday morning somebody 

heard a shot and a whelp of pam, 
and something that lived, died 

We don't know who shot that 
dug, or why. But we'd be willing 
to wager that as a child he pulled 
wings off butterflies to see if 
they'd scream. 

And a warning to all students: 
1)0 not make noise after 11:00 
o'clock on weekends. You may 
end up with a bullet in your head

Cafeteria Food: 

Many Sides to Problem 

by Pete Purvis 

One of the favorite topics of 
discussion here at Milligan is 
concerning the food ser\'ed in the 
cafeteria A great deal of the 
discussion is critical; however, it 
one looks at what goes into 
preparing our meals they will see 
much of the criticism is unfair. 

Sam Combs is the cafetena 
manager. He is the^ man who 

plans Ihe menus for all our 
meals Being cafeteria manager 
is a difficult job He must plan 
meals which he feels most of the 
students will enjoy while working 
nil J limited income. Mr, Combs 
I ries to have at least two types of 
meats to choose from at every 
meal He also works to add 
variety m the menus. Mr, Combs 
said that he encourages students 

to offer suggestions and opinions 
on the food and ways in which to 
improve i( So if you have a 
complaint or constructive 
criticism, don't keep it to your- 
self, talk to Mr Combs about it 
and he will do whatever he can to 
change the things you feel need

opinions and comments on the

usually abound at good old

students who do not attend the

■The meals are generally 
nutritious and quite tasty." One 
of the main complaints about the 
food was that "it is often cold or 
not completely cooked" Opinions 
concerning breakfast were 
generally favorable and most 
students considered it to be the 
best meal of the day. Most 
students realize that the quality 
of meat cannot be of the best 
quality, but they were against 
serving leftovers One student 
expressed a very objective view

are probably used to Ihe types of

The Insane Question

s Christians, we lace a lot of 
blems. Now, for most of us. 
nol the big catastrophes of the 
■ that drag us down — but the 
mingly insignificant trifles 

I always take Iheir toll. The 
jorily of us here at Miltigan 
/e had very little exposure to 
■thshaking hassles like tor- 
xles or robbery or cellophane 
;r the toilet seat — but nearly 

of us have been exposed to 
it one circumstance that seems 
be the "mystery meat" in our 
feteria of life. The cir- 
mstance to which I am 
■erring is the encounter with 
s a common everyday tragedy 
It has probably slapped every 
e of us in the face. How many of 
have been caught on our way

II of clothes with this insane 
lestion — 'Gonna do your 
undry?" (Which, by the way. is 

unny Side Of Faith 

number 6 in the top 10 insane 
questions at Milligan,) There 
have been, as most of you are 
aware, several books published 
by MAD magazine capitalizing 
on "snappy answers" to such 
questions. But. alas and alack, 
these books are of the world and 
should not be consulted by the 
upstanding young student who 
has his fellow man at heart. After 
all. even the most enlightened 
among us have observed our 
roommmate rise from his-her 
bed and put on his-her coat & 
shoes, and still we persist in 
inquiring — "Going 

somewhere?" It's not necessarily 
the asker of such questions that 
causes us to tear our hair & rent 
our garments. It jusl seems to be 
the sensation of utter futility that 
IS created by questions such as 
"What do you mean you can't 
go?" Worldly people can't 
comprehend the frustration in-

question" Consider the carefree 
attitude of a man o( the world 
strolling through the forest with 
an arm load of wood He is en-

who asks — (prepare yourself) 
"Gonna build a fire?' This first

Yea. I'll move to Omaha,

back of some filling station I've 
got it all planned out, it's really 
going to be great, I'll work in the 
station part time to pay for my

going to sit in my bean bag chair 
and watch roller dergy. When 
roller derby goes off there's 
always studio wrestling and when 
that's over I'll play Porter

Gee. Conway Twitly and those 
Tw.'itly Birds are most likely the 
hottest group in the country. 

Golly mom and dad I'm glad I 
got these low mid-term grades, 
cause I'd never have thought 

I guarantee that you'll get a 
quick phone call or an urgent 
letter back saying something like 


Dear kid, 

Don't worry about your mid- 
term grades. And please don't 
drop out of school and move to 
Omaha, Your grades might not 
be good, but it does show us there 
is room for improvement. We 
love you even though you are 

Love parents 

A letter to your parents will do 
wonders, believe me. I pull the 
same trick every time And in- 
stead of yelling at me teUing me 
how they think they raised an 
idiot, they feel sorry for me and 
even treat me with dignity.

semester, but December and 
finals time is coming pretty soon.

problem of finding information in 
any given area of the PH. 
Welshimer Memorial Library, or 
maybe just needing some good 
advice, the person to see is John 
Nelh. Library Director who has 
had seventeen years of dedicated 
service al Milligan. 

Neth, a native of Cleveland, 
OH , joined the Milligan staff in 
August, 1953 as Library Director. 
His service was broken four 
years later when he took his leave 
of absence and went to work as a 
sufwrvisor of 15 libraries in a 
school system near Cleveland, 
Upon his return in 1962. he 
worked as a part-time library 
director with the college while 
ser\'ing full-lime as director of 
the Lonesome Pine Regional 
Library in southwestern 
Virginia. He t>ecame full-lime 
director of the Milligan library in 
1965 and during this lime was also 
responsible for the Emmanuel 
School of Religion library In 1973 
when Emmanuel moved to its 
new building, Nelh chose lo stay 
at Milligan. 

Nelh has had an active life. 
After four years at Bethany, he 
spent seven and a half years in 
the U.S. Army during World War 
11, Neth holds a B.S. degree from 
Bethany College, a B,D from

sees his biggest achievement as 
"that of seeing my dreams 
fulfilled in the development of an 
adequate library in terms of

of professional assitance 

Depsite his busy schedule, Neth

What's in a Name? 

What's in a name^ An old 
cliche you may deem it, but this 
reporter and other persons on the 
Milligan campus view this 
"Cliche " as a very timely and 
pertinent question The situation 
with which this article will deal is 
the policy of Milligan and. as I 
understand it, olher colleges, of 
retaining and using a female 
studenLs maiden name for the 
whole of her time in college — 
even though she is married. 

Henceforth this policy shall be 
referred to as the "Maiden Name 
Policy " Three women which are 
presently students at Milligan 
will be cited as examples to try 
and impress upon the reader the 
confusion, frustration, and 
cmbarassment that can, and 
usually does stem from the use of 
such an inadequate college 


Mrs. Nona Norris Lohr, the 
first of the women interviewed, 
stated that at first the idea of 
having to still be recognized by 
her maiden name upset her 
gr'-ally, "But gradually you gel 
u„c lo it and it doesn't tiother you 
any more. As long as they get my 
name right on my diploma I'll be 

Mrs. Bonny Slurgis L^mb cited 
three particular gnevances with

grade cards to her parents rather 
than to her address here

echoed Bonny's feelings of 
disgust and frustration by going 
so far as lo say. "Sometimes I 
wish I'd never changed my 
name!" Then Kim listed the 
headaches that came to haunt her 
as a result of the "Maiden Name 
Policy" as follows li Her grades 
were sent to her father rather 
ihan to her 2i "1 don't like the 
fact thai in class I'm not listening 
for my maiden name and you 
have to go through all the hassle 
of going to the professor and 
changing the name of his books, 
but keeping it the same 
elsewhere 3^ "We received an 
invitation to President Johnson's

Christmas party and it was ad- 
dressed to Mr. and Mrs, Kim- 
berly Thompson instead of Mr. 
and Mrs. Don Imel." In this case 

Don didn't even get the benefit of 
a doubt as Ken Lamb did, Don. as 
suggested by the invitation, was 
either the wife or non-exislant. 
and in either case the choice is 

All of these slalements seem to 
say to me that for the sake of 
"keeping the records straight" 
and saving money and a lot of 
confusion and waste have 
became the results The Bible 
tells us in Genesis 2:24, speaking 
of the union of marriage if you 
will, of Adam and Eve" . .: and 
they shall be one flesh." Our 
culture has made the ceremony 

of ihe woman taking her 
husbands name lo be her own as a 
symbol of their union, their 
oneness. Now if these people are 
one should we not recognize them 
as one'' To not do so is foolish. 

The Lohrs, Lambs, ana Imels are 
Christians who, through the 
bonds of marriage, have become 
one in the sight of the Lord and it 
is folly for anyone to fail lo 
recognize, or cause another to 
overlook the state of union is their 
common name 

It is my belief that regardless 
of the reasons for the school 
policy of continuing lo use a 
womans maiden name after she 
has been married, that the 
continuing of such a practice will 
produce, not only confusion, 
frustration, and embarassment, 
but quite possibly feelings of ill- 
will and offense which could 
otherwise have been avoided

Intersession by independent 
study will be offered for the 
second year during winter break, 
Intersession is a program of 
independent study completed at 
home by the student. All of liie 
selected courses are offered for 
two semester hour credits. 

The cost of intersession courses 
is $59 60 per semester hour 
credit, the same as the regularly 
offered semester courses. 
Registration for intersession 
courses ends December 12. 1975 
Students will receive all the 
necessary material for the 
courses they are taking during 
the week of December 8th 
through 12th. The assignments 
are to be completed and turned 
into the teacher no later than 
January 15. 1976. Schedules 
explaining the registration 
processes are available at the 
office of Ms Phyllis Fontaine, 

This year the intersession 
program is featuring a course on 
Readings on Egypt and Israel, 
instructed by Dr. Webb, Dr 
Clark explained that this course 
is intended mainly for those 
students who plan to attend the 

Intersessions Offered 

tour of (■^gy pi, .Jordiin, and Israel, 
led by Dr. Morrison, during the 
spring break. 

According to Ms. Fontaine the 
intersession program can benefit 
students in different ways. One 
benefit is that several of the 
courses offered are not available 
during the regular academic 
year For example, Mr Nelson is 
preparing a course on the Trial 
and Death of Jesus Also Mr 
Knowles has a course titled A 
Study of Tolkiens Lord of The 
Rings A third class being offered 
that is not included in the regular 
academic schedule is 

Psychotheology. instructed by 
Dr Crowder 

Another benefit of the in- 
tersession program, as seen by 
Ms Fontaine, is that the extra 
credits earned could make the 
difference of one more semesters 
for some students The lime and 
expense of one more semester 
can be bypassed through in- 

Each teacher will set up their 
own way of determining students 
scores. However, there will be no 

incompletes given U the work is 
not completed the grade will be 
iho same as failing. 

Janet Martin said that she felt 
she could recommend taking 
intersession courses. "In- 
tersession was an easy way for 
me to gain two hours credit. It is 
especially helpful to those 
students who are trying for 
double majors Sometimes it is 
hard to get in all the credits 
needed " 

Another student who took an 
intersession course last year was 
Becky Coleman. According to 
Becky it was easier to study at 
home without the pressure of 
classes. She liked being able to 
study at her own chosen time and 
with only the final deadline to 

Ms. Fontaine said "I am 
pleased we have the intersession 
It can keep a student from having 
to take an overload of hours Also 
the intersession courses can help 
someone who may have to take 
summer courses for credits," 

Concert Choir

14. the Milligan College Concert 
Choir, under the direction of 
Professor John Wakefield, will

George Fredrick Handel. 
Mendelssohn. Hector, and 
Berlioz are also on the program, 
as well as the delightful Ukranian

and peace of the approaching 

Toys For Tots 

On December 13, Milligan 
College will sponsor a Toys for 
Tots Campaign in cooperation 
v/;'h the Marif-.e Corps. 

Toys for Tots, an annual e\en!, 
has been in operation since 1947 
It benefits thousands of under 
provileged children Toys for 
Tots began in Los Angeles and 
has since spread to 200 citifrs in 45 
stales. The Marines collec* 
around five million toys annuall., 
The Johnson Ci:y Marine Corp 
Reserve has been participalinu- 
since moving here in 1953 

In 1973 appr^'ximaiely M.wx> 
repairable toys were collected 
from Johnson City residents 
These toys were repaired and 
brought to over 900 children. In 
1974 the toys collected numbered 
around 12,000 and benefited 800 
children who otherwise would 
have had no Christmas 

Vans will be leaving Sutton 
Hall at 8:00 am on December 13 
Teams will be sent out in vans to 
cover various areas of Johnson 
City, Participants may choose 
whom they wish to work with 
The Johnson City Press Chronicle 
will have advertised so the 
residents are expecting the vans. 

The following clubs and 
organizations are helping to 
sponsor the event Any 
questions may be directed to 
Keith W'hinnery, Paul Bader or 
the president of one of the 
following clubs:

In years past, Milligan students 
have been enthusiastic about 
helping the Marines in their 
project This interest has been 
steadily decreasing With fewer 
students, less area is covered and 
fewer toys collected, 

Philosophy Seminar 

Dean Wetzel will teach a 
philosophy seminar concerning 
faith and doubt this coming 
spring semester The course is 
open to all Junior and Senior 
students who have had 
Humanities and any Sophomores 
holding a B average or better. 
This class IS for all serious 
students, whether or not 
philosophy majors. Class will be 
held M , W . & F at three o'clock. 


During Thanksgiving break, on 
Wednesday, November 2fi. a bad 
windstorm occurred in the 
Milligan area As a result of the 

<^fnrm, !ho l.nrv F'-^ldhouse 


The storm brought about a 
power failure causing the power 
on campus to be off. The power 
was restored, but later in the 
nighl it failed again 

During the first power failure, 
the generator in the Lacy 
Fieldhouse came on and 
everj'thing ran smoothly; but 
during the second failure, *he 
generator did not function and a 
problem arose 

Winds were blowing at ap- 
proximately 50 miles per I;our, 
Because the generator was not 
functioning, the roof of the 
Fieldhouse began to give in and 
lights began to swing. 

As a result of the power failure, 
some lights were broken Not an 
excessive amount of damage was 
done. The situation could have 
t>een worse 

All damage done to the 
Fieldhouse either has been 
repaired or is presently being 
worked on. 

The failure of the generator to 
function could have saved us 
from a future problem when the 
circumstances could have been 
more severe, causing much more 
damage to the Fieldhouse. 


Pardee Hall Residents Present Petition 

In the last issue of the Stam- 
pede, there appeared an article 
concerning the living conditions 
of Pardee Hal) residents After a 
late night power failure in parts 
of the dormitory, resident con- 
cern increased. 

In an all-dormitory meeting on 
November 14. Pete Frizzell. out 
of mutual concern, presented the 
following petition to Pardee 

President Johnson: 

WHEREAS, in the past few 
weeks there have been multiple 
failures of the electncal system 
ie. blinking lights, and 
WHEREAS. the fire ex- 
tinguishers are not effective 
against an electrical fire, and 
WHEREAS, there remains no 
safe and effective means of 
escape for upper level residents, 

WHEREAS, there is no af^arent 
evidence of testing of main- 
tenance of the sprinkler system, 

WHEREAS, Pardee Hall is 
constructed with one open 
stairwell, thus failing many 
building safety codes, and 

WHEREAS, many outlet boxes 
are not properly grounded, and 

WHEREAS, the wiring in the 
bathroom is improperly exposed, 
I* it therefore 

RESOLVED, we the undersigned 
residents cite these grounds for 
requesting an immediate and 
thorough inspection of the wiring 


The Salt Of The Earth 

By Kato 

In the USA. there are many 
foreign students. Most of them 
are from so-called un- 
derdeveloped or developing 
countries. On account of low 
personal income in those coun- 
tries, it is evident that only a 
limited number of people are 
financially able to study in this 

For example college graduates 
can make only about seventy-five 
U.S. dollars per month m 
Thailand. Workers who are 
sorting letters in a post office in 
Bankok can make forty US 
dollars per month Therefore, 
some of them take off unstamped 
stamps from the letters to make 
money So the letters whose 
stamps are stolen go back to the 
senders again. 

It is true anywhere (even in 
Russia, but not in People's 
Republic of China probably i that 
higher education is the suresl 
way to gain higher status and 
higher salary. An American 
degree is an extremely big thing 
in those countries. Foreign 
students are guaranteed higher 
status and higher salary (It is not 
true for me) when they go back to 
their own country Their future is 

Democracy is functioning very 
well in this country. Under the 
slogan of equal opportunity 
everybody can go to college, even 
if his parents are poor He can get 
a scholarship from goveinment 
or school or both Schools provide 
good working programs and 
loans So he can pursue whatever 
vocation he wants if he is qualified, 
but it is not ture in many other 
countires Some people cannot go 
even to high school in their own 
countries for lack of money. (The 
rate of illiteracy in Thailand is 
about fifty percent ) The sorter in 
a post office in Bankok will never 
be able to send his children to 
foreign countries for study even if 
his children are very talented 

Discrimination In Vietnam 

In Vietnam the war continued 
more than thirty years. Don't be 
surprised that even during those 
times, the rich could send their 
children to foreign countries (Ex 
France, the USA,) for their 
education, though most people 
had to toil for each day's bread 
So only poor people's children 
were drafted and died on the 

Inequality In Wealth 

The USA is proud of its big 
middle class which contributes to 
thestability of the U.S.A. society. 
However, thers is not a big 
middle class in many countries. 
There is no equal distribution. In 
some countries, five percent of 
people possess ninety percent of 
national wealth, Political, 
economical, and social structures 
favor the few. The rich become 
richer and the poor become 
poorer. It is impossible for the 
poorchild to climb the pyramid I 
do not necessarily blame him if 
he begins to have a class- 
consciousness when a corrupt 
government favors a small 
number of groups, and he is 
forced to look after himself 
Except for the intelligentsia 
almost all people are only 
worried about tomorrow's bread 
and clothes so as to avoid stanng 
and freezing to death Bread and 
clothes are more important than 
freedom for non-intelligenlsia 
whose concerns are determined 
by his existence Actually, the 
intelligentsia should be ready to 
fight and die for freedom (ex. 
Andre Malraux in Spanish Civil 

by Boyd Stover 

and safety features of the Pardee 
-Residence Hal! by a certified 
inspector and he it 
our safety cannot be ascertained 
by such we will seek altemalive 
means of assuring our reasonable 
safely through the office of the 
stale fire marshal. 

On No\'ember 18. Pete FozeU 
presented the petition to College 
President, Dr Jess Johnson. Dr. 
Johnson referred Pete and his 
petition to the College Business 
Officer. Mr. B.J. Mocre. A 
discussion of the issues of the 
petition took place and Mr. Moore 
stated that he was not aware of 
the wiring problems 

On Fnday, November 21. an 
electrician inspected the second 
and third floors of the dormitory. 
A list was left on the first floor 
bulletin board where residents 
were requested to make notations 
of any electrical problems in- 
curred The list is still in the 
lobby area; and, as of presstime, 
Mr Moore had not received the 
_, ^ electrician's final analysis , 

Although Pardee was re-wired 
in 1950, student erutillment has 
increased since that time. And a 
rise in the number of students 
means an ever increasing rise in 
the number of stereos. 
televisions, and other electrical 
appliances in use in the building. 
And many residents have found it 
nect^.-aary to use electric heaters 
. to supplement the central heat in

The Madrigal tradition was 
began at Milligan in 1967 by the 
Moorhouses and Bachmans. who 
researched the music, art and 
architecture. Professors 
Wakefield and Wright are well 
qualified to carry on the 
authenticity. Mr. Wakefield 
participated in a Madrigal dinner 
as an undergraduate student and 
organized and directed a 
Madrigal Dinner as a professor 
at Great Lakes Bible College 
before coming to Milligan. He 
will not be seen on stage as he 
feels this should be strictly a 
student production. 

In 1967 the dinner was held for 
one evening only and tickets were 
$2 50. The following year, due to 
public demand, the dinner was 
extended to four nights and was 
still a sell-out. Tickets go on sale 
in mid-October each year and are 
sold out almost immediately- 

Food costs have forced the 
ticket price up gradually over the 
years. This year tickets are $600 
each; student rale $4.75. Mrs. 
Treadway, music secretarj-, has 
been handling ticket reser\-alions 
since she came to Milligan in

Tieu and Kao Ky speak pretty 
good English It is evident that 
they received their education in

munists look over Saigon, they 
left their pec^le to the Com-

with a huge amount of fortune 
(Tieu brought 16 tons of property 
to Taiwan). It sounds good to be a 

Tieu's life and Kao Ky's life are 
not as hard as Ihat of the pec^le

were left in South Vietnam.

everybody on this campus should 
bear in mind the verse, "You are

Funny Side Of Faith 

This article is dedicated to 
those intelligent, concerned in- 
dividuals who have graced past 
STAMPEDE issues with 
editorials, suggestions, and 
commentary. I have composed, 
from major issues, of the past, a 
composite article pertaining to 
all the problems of Milligan 


Sir Kenneth Clark was walking 
up the hill and fell in a hole - a 
hole dug by the administration 
who. by the way, doesn't care 
beans about the students! 
Speaking of beans • I'm sick and 
tired of pork and beans m the 
cafeteria everyday — a cafeteria 
that's too dirty and small for the 
student body — and speaking of 
bodies - I'm tired of seeing dead 
dogs laying around campus near 
Pardee - that rat-filled dorm. 1 
don't see how all those athletes 
can put up with those rats - 
course we wouldn't hear so many 
complaints if they cut some more 

out of the athletic budget - the 
money we would save, could help 

the teacher's salaries — course 
they don't deserve it 'cause 
they're so boring. And they give 
us so much homework we can't 
go see the lousy Milligan movies. 
Why can't we have good ones like 
"Truck Slop Mama"? Mama -

Holy Land: Latest In 
Amusement Centers 

By Mike Shannon 

The rumors are rampant 
concerning the newest and most 
innovative idea to make money 
from religion In the grand 
tradition of big time gospel 
quartets. Jesus rock, prayer 
towers, 'one way' "^weal shirts, 
and the ever popular deposits for 
evangelism, comes this money 
making scheme designed lo find 
its way into the hearts of millions. 
and into the office of the S.E.C. 
This idea is a synthesis of 
Disneyland and religion. The 
originator of the idea was going 
tocall it "Holy Land", but did not 
want to confuse his idea with a 
more famous but inferior tourist 
attraction in the Mideast. Phil T 
Luchre is the mind behind this 
sanctivied amusement park. He 
has divided what he likes to call 
"Bibleland", into different at- 
tractions like, thrill rides, shops, 
side shows, and restaurants 

Some of the thrill rides include 
the "Shipwreck with Paul", 
where you can duplicate the 
famous apostles illfated journey 
lo Rome. You can also brave the 
"Lion's Den" like Daniel The 
"Holy Roller Coaster" is a 
favorite, as is "Jacobs Ladder" 
where the stout of heart can 
challenge the heights of the holy 
stairs. A journey on Noah's ark 
was planned but that was 
rejected by the Humane Society. 

The shops are of special in- 
terest. They include such 
fascinating markets as "Simon's 
Sorcery", "Lydias Purple 
Palace", "Dorcas' Dress Shq)" 
and popular with the men is 
"Laban's Bride Market". 

The only side shows in the 
original plans are several 
specialized shooting galleries. 
You can try your luck at the sling 
shot against a quite lifelike 
Goliath Some prefer throwing 
darts at a mechanical Absolom 
hanging from a tree. TTie last but 
not least of the galleries allows 
you to stone a heretic of your 

The restaurant provides a wide 
variety of delights. The health 
food lovers can go to "John the 
Baptist's Honey and Locust". A 
slightly more expensive 
restaurant is the "Quail and 
Manna Burger". One of the more 
charming elements here is the 
added touch of getting your 
beverages by striking a rock, A 
very expensive place to eat is 
"Jacob's Pottage Pot" This is so 
good that some have been known

THE DATE: JANUARY 13. 1976 ■ 


There are several ways the 
average Milligan student can 
view this notice Some reactions 
may be as follows. 

The music Department is: 

C, Making sure everyone gels 
a chance to use Seeger. 

D. Making sure no one gets a 
chance to use Seeger. 

B, Again - Flexing Iheir 
administrative muscles. 

A Taking to heart the needs 
of the Milligan community. 

The answer may lie there 
somewhere or it may be con- 
cealed in a Bb concert by 
Wolfgang von Beethoven - but, 
whatever the case, there should 
probably be some aftereffects. 
We present a logical progression 
that we pray never evolves 

As we tune in we see our hero. 
John Buck, making his way 
through the registration line. He 
turns in his cards, he pays his 
bill, he recieves his convocation 
seat, and turns to exit, when he 
encounters another table 

"What's this?" he asks the four 
people sitting behind it. "This." 
says the spokesman, "is the 
<rfficial permission slip table. It is 
here so that you may obtain your 
official permission slips" John 
moved closer and said, meekly. 

"What for'" "Why. for one 
thing." said the first man, "for 
eating." All students who wish to 
eat in the Sutton Cafeteria must 
first obtain a permission slip and 
henceforth have it signed by Sam 
before every meal " "Oh." said 
our hero. ''Well, give me as many 
as you can for I intend to be 
eating there alot this week." Our 
hero then went on to the second 
man "Do you intend on taking 
classes this semester^" asked 
the man, "Yes" relied our hero, 
"Well then" said the man. "you 
are lucky " 

You can use our ail-new 
comprehensive education per- 
mission slip. When signed by 
Dean Clark, it entitles you to 

enter the Ad Building, the 

Science Building, the Fieldhouse. 
and Seeger. ion Sunday mor- 
ning)," "Well that certainly is 
nice," said good congenial John. 
"I'll take one". We then watch as 
our hero makes his way to the 
third man, "Hi there," said the 

third man, "My name is Lovely 
Hughes and I own the laun- 
drymai behind Webb I just want 
to inform you that we have the 
latest cleaning devices, quick 
service, and we're open to the 
public seven days a week, just 
pick up this permission slip" 

"Thank you," said John Buck, 
Johns then moved to the final 
position which was occupied by 
an attractive young lady "I 
represent the women of Milligan 
College, she says, "Do you 
presently or at any time in the 
near future, plan to pursue 
romantic diversions with any 

member of the female persuasion 
affilated with, or belonging to the 
Milligan communilyO" "Oh myl" 
exclaimed our hero. He tears his 
clothes and throws his papers in 
the air,_"I must leave or in some 
manner sort of disappear from 
this place," he says as he heads 
for the door "Why?" ask the 
concerned people at the table. 
"Because," said John in 
dramatic tones. "I don't think I 
have a note from my Mommy to 
come Here!"

Merry Christmas 

Ho! Ho! Ho' Its Christmas 
time once more Put up your 
trees Do your shopping early and 
avoid the rush Hang blinking 
lights in your windows and 
doorways Write Santa letters if 
you wish Make tons of cookies 
and candy. Eat all of it. Go to 
Jess Johnson's for banana splits. 
Send cards to all your friends. 
Buy what you want for yourself 
this year You do not want to be 
slighted" you know Plan festive 
parties and attend all you can 

Idon'tcare whatany of you do! 
That's right. I said I don't care 
what any of you do! Why should 
I? Nobody hurts me I don't know 
half of you. Those of you 1 am 
acquainted with are perfectly 
harmless. 'We love each other). 

My only wish for everyone at 
Milligan College is that each of 
you (and some nut named Boyd 
Sloven, will receive peace and 
joy by remembering what 
Christmas is really all about. 

A Glance Ahead 

I am now the editor of a college 
newspaper I've been dragged 
from my bed in Pardee and glued 
to a chair in front of a typewriter 
in the basement of Sutton Hall. 
It's only 4:00 a.m Just three 
more hours till breakfast and its 
off to the printers 

Many of you probably are 
wondering why anyone would 
want to assume the responsibility 
of heading up a paper staff- 
Personally. 1 have a love for 
journalism And. as of yet, I 
haven't had my fill of it. 

I'm excited about the STAM- 
PEDE next semester 1 would 
like to share my enthusiasm with 
other students, faculty, ad- 
ministration and staff 

I would like to congratulate 
Bonny Lamb for a job well done 
this semester, I would also like to 
thank her for everything that she 
has tried to teach me, I'm sure 
I've retained at least half of it. 

Once again, I'm looking for- 
ward to working with all of you 
next semester! But, until then. 
GO HOME! Have nice breaks 
everyone. I think we've earned a 
vacation, don't vou? 


"^^^jj^lTHi^^ Cartoons To The Editor 

li's that time of year again- 
lapers are due, finals are only a 
'ew days away—and many of us. 
ir at least some of us, are busy 
iludying. If we had time, we 
might take a look at this past 
fsemester, and see where we have 
n and where we are going. 

Most of us are here because we 
feel Milligan College has 
something to offer us. Many feel, 
W. that we have something to 
dfer Milligan College. 

If you take a look around, you 
may come to the same conclusion 
many others have come to. As a 
religiously - affiliated liberal-arts 
institution. Milligan College has 
more to offer than most of its 
neighboring sister colleges, as 
well as many of its neighboring 
state-operated institutions. 

Milligan College may have a 
few small problems, but It has 
still come quite a long way in just 
this past semester. 

To begin with, we have found, 
as students, that the ad- 
ministration has turned an open 
ear to our needs and wants. With 
Dean Fontaine's founding this 
semester of the student life 
committee, we are now able to 
make our wishes known to the 
administration. The creation of 
this committee is, perhaps, the 
administrations most com- 
mendable action in the past year 
or two. and Dean Fontaine's 
leadership in this matter 
deserves our thanks. 

This semester, loo, we saw the 
endof six years of contrpyersy in 
the opening of the new Steve Lacy 

By Dan Kirkland 

Fieldhouse Many of us fell a 
sense of pride and progresi. in the 
Iong''ons(ruction of the world's 
first permanent air-supported 
building while, at the same lime, 
many of us felt a sense of disgust 
and Impatience in the con- 
struction of the same building. 
However, that time of con- 
troversy is now gone Dr 
Johnson certainly deserves 
credit for the creation and 
completion of this new physical 
education structure, 

Dr Johnson should be thanked, 
also, for the moving of the dirt 
from the site of the president's 
new residence toAnglin field. For 
the benefit of the students, it was 
the best of many possible 

Ttiis semester ^s seen a fair 
number of campiis.actlvities The 
complaint that there is nothing to 
do on campus is almost obsolete 
now. in the wake of men's and 
women's intramurals, movies, 
and varisty basketball g.imes, 
among others. Most students 
would agree that Milligan College 
does have plenty to offer There 
are still a few goals which need to 
be reached— there is the small 
but distinct lack of unity among 
students which needs to be 
resolved; there is hope that the 
basement of the new fieldhouse 
will be made into a second 
student union center ; there is still 
a growing protest against the 
present parking ticket situatjon— 
but on the whole, Milligan College 
is a positive answer to the 
question of higher education

To Be Or Not To Be By John Ray 

"There was a certain rich man 

who had a steward who was 

I reported to him as squandering 

his possessions. He called him 

I and said to him "What is this I 

; hear about you? Give an account 

j of your stewardship, for you can 

I no longer be steward!" The 

' steward said to himself, "What 

shall I do since my lord is taking 

the stewardship away from me? I 

am not strong enough to dig, I am 

ashamed to beg. I know what I 

shall do. so that when I am 

' removed from the stewardship 

I Ihey will receive me into their 

homes," He summoned each of 

, his lord's debtors and was saying 

lo the first, "How much do you 

owe my lord?" He said. "More 

: thaneoogallonsof oil" Hesaid to 

j him, "Take your bill, sit down 

i quickly, and write 400," He said 

; to another, "And how much do 

I you owe?" He said. "1100 bushels 

I of wheat," He tells him. "Take 

; your bill and write 880." His lord 

: praised the unjust steward for his 

: shrewdness, for the sons of this 

! age are more shrewd in relation 

■ to their own generation than the 

sons of light, Vs 9: I tell you, 

make friends for yourselves by 

means of unrighteous riches, that 
when it fails they may receive 
you into eternal dwellings," 

Jesus, Luke6:l-9 

What is happening in this 
parable, if it is a parable? 

Historically the church has 
said that a servant guilty of 
embezzlement was fired Being 
cast on the streets without any 
money, he needed some fast 
cash. So. he extorted money from 
former debtors of his master who 
as yet did not know that he had 
been fired. When the master 
heard he ran to his former em- 
ployee, congratulating him 
because of his quick thinking. 
Jesus then tells his disciples lo be 
diligent to take advantage of 
every situation just as wordly 
people do 

Recently, a minority of 
theologians have taken a quite 
opposite view. According to 
them, the servant sought to be 

reconciled to his master. He ran 
to his master's debtors and 
collected the debts minus the 
servant's commission, thereby 
trying to buy their friendship. 
The servant returned the money 
to his lord and was rehired The 
servant was therefore praised for 
his acts of repentance as well as 
his shrewdness. 

A third view deserves to be 
investigated Otherwise, verse 9 
remains to condemn Jesus as a 
selfish opportunist- 
Taking either interpretation of 
the story, read verse 9 in the 
sense that Jesus is a writer for 
MAD magazine After all, this is 
the same Jesus of Matthew 9:12 
and Luke 15 3-7 Jesus is being 
sarcastic, derogatory "Look at 
the kinds of friends they really 
are Go and imitate them but you 
won't be able to keep pace Buy 
your false, selfish companions. 
See if they can give you an 
eternal home." 

The thursi of vs, 9 is the thurst 
of the whole central section of 
Luke Discipleship demands a 
complete uprooting from the way 
of this age Verses 10-13 tends to 
support this interpretation 


Miss Johnson City, Debbie Walker Strikes Happy Medium 

Impressions Of 

By Ermine Campbell 

Many persons experitnoe 
problems when il comes lo 
striking a happy medium bet- 
ween the academic and social 
life But to Debbie Walker, one 
reigning Miss Johnson City, this 
seems to be no problem 

Debbie, a senior here at 
Miltigan. comes to us from 
Greenfield, Ohio She is the onJy 
child of Mr and Mrs, Lames L, 
Walker. A Humanities major and 
Music minor, Debbie possesses 
many talents which she has 
displayed in numerous ways. 

On May 10, Debbie entered the 
Miss Johnson City Beauty pagent 
and was elected Miss Johnson 
City for 1975*76; her reign will 
expire in June, Debbie has so far 
had what she terms, "A very 
enjoyable, exciting and 
challenging reign" In her 
capacity as Miss Johnson City, 
she leads a rather busy life. 
Among her activities are. 
travelling for Milligan and giving 
concerts in local high schools; 
performing for different civic 
and religious organizations and 
this past summer she gave a pre- 
concert show for Merle Haggard, 
a very well known country 
western singer Her appearances 
included not only singing but 
modeling and speaking 

Debbie was named among 
Who's Who in America this year 

After her firsV two years at 
Milligan, Debbie sang prof- 
fessionally for one year making 
appearances at different places 
in the United States Since her 
return to Milligan she has suc- 
cessfully taken 18 credit hours 
per semester and this semester 
she is taking 19 hours including 
all the extra activities which she 
manages very well. She said that 
at the moment her over-all 
average is 3.8. When asked how 

she manages to cope with so 
many acUvilies she remarked, 
"With God's help," 

Despite her busy schedule 
Debbie has been very active in 
several activities here at 
Milligan She is one of the 
Madrigal Singers, a member of 
Concert Choir and also acted the 
leading female role in the 
musical put on by Milligan, the 



As we near the end of this 
semester, the STAMPEDEs new 
editor assigned this writer the 
prized assignment of journalism 
— freelance work. Being the cub 
reporter of our glorious tabloid, 
yours truly decided that the 
subject of this article should be 
rather unique. Entitle this 
"Impressions of a Freshman 
rtfler His First Semester At 
Milligan College " 

A good friend and colleague, 
Pete Purvis, wrote a somewhat 
similar story back at the 
beginning of this term However, 
being a veteran, he is now given 
tougher assignments such as 
examination of snowflakes when 
treated with Ben Gay ointment, 
or attempted extermination of 
rats in Pardee Hall with 
Preparation H. 

Purvis write of the beauty of 
the campus and the family at- 
mosphere of the students and 
faculty. He discovered the rolling 
hills, the great fellowship, and 
the nervousness of first arrival. 
All freshmen were experienceing 

that condition known as The New 
Student Snydrome As seniors in 
high school, we had known 
everything, and somehow lost all 
that edication in the span from 
June to September Let's go back 
now to the very first Humanities 
paper Remember how you 
slaved for that entire sleepless 
week, sweating and writing, 
rewriting and maybe typiibg your 
golden words on why Jack was a 
bloodthirsty tyrant who reflected 
Satan. Richard Nixon, Jimmy 
Connors, and Gabby Hayes all 
rolled up into one^ Remember 
how you went through the dorm 
looking for someone to help you 
with the sentence structure? 
Remember offering the 1956 
eHjtion of Roget's Thesaurus as a 
burht sacrifice to Mrs Nipper on 
the night before the paper was 
due'' Dp you recall finding out 
how to ~ write a really proper 
paper five minutes before you got 
it back, covered with red ink, 
insults to your mentality, and 
reminders of just how lucky you 
were to be getting a D+ on your 

first theme'' Remember the 
frantic phone call home lo your 
parents instructing them not lo 
put the pool table in your room 
yet, as you might want to put a 
year in junior college or di'ch 

The first semester of 1975-76 
saw many contributions to the 
Milligan scene. Many informal 
clubs and other groups have 
sprung up all over the campus. 
Some of these are The 
Weeknight TV Club, The Webb 
Hall Billiards Association, The I 
Hate The Miami Dolphins 
Fraternity, The Sutton Serenade 
Committee, the Y&R's of Hari 
Hall (a womens auxiliary to the 
SUB Community Center), and 
The Weekend TV Club. 

The semester saw a few 
disasters, such as the last issue of 
the STAMPEDE, and the opening 
of a new facility that shall remain 
nameless for reason of jour- 
nalistic ethics Nobody wants to 
beat a dead horse 

As new freshman, we had 
many changes in attitudes 

Attitudes about people changed, 
mostly for the better. Our at- 
titudes about college changed. 
We came here with the attitude lo 
study, and quickly changed that 
attilude. Our outlook on ourselves 

We learned to put up with the 
little disappointments in life 
Disappointments like not being lo 
mail the snow home to Florida, or 
having all your finals on Monday 
and Tuesday — except for one. 
Thursday at 2:00 p.m. 

Many organized activities have 
occurred here at the school to 
enhance our stay during the first 
semester The Milligan Movie 
has been one such source of 
amusement However, the show 
usually stops as soon as the film 
starts rolling. The "Mr Civinette 
Pageant" provided much insight 
into the average Milligan male as 
well as the newest fad in long- 
john underwear The en- 
tertainment of the Super 
Weekend was all the 
professionally tuned mind could 
want or stand The only hitch in 

By Hank Dahlman 

tne whole weekend was a strange 
person who kept walking up and 
down the aisles during the 
"Boyfriend" asking if that dirty 
old man in the play was really a 
student at Milligan. 

A constant source of en- 
tertainment is the ice throwing 
championships held daily in the 
cafeteria. Full of danger and 
excitement, this sport has origins 
from methods used in ancient 
Rome to care for the mentally 

Yes. the first semester at 
Milligan College has been in- 
teresting and revealing. We've 
had fun and scenery, study and 
disappointment, triumph and 
tragedy We've had plenty of 
time to get to know the College 
and join in the game we call 
education, and we've come to at 
least one conclusion. Life here at 
Milligan College is pretty good. 
Good friends, good education, 
and a great atmosphere help to 
make this institution one of the 

Mr. & Mrs. Campbell 

Extend Seasons Greeting and Best Wisties to 
eacti of you. May peace, prosperity and joy be 
yours always. 

We appreciate Milligan, It's students and Its faculty.

the annual King College 
Thanksgiving Tournament in 
Bristol This year, on November 
28 and 29. MiUigan once again 
defended their championship 
against King College, Bluefield. 
and Clinch Valley 

Going into the tournament with 
a 3-1 record, the Buffs parted 
with two more victories to add to 

Clinch Valley was the first to 
feel the wrath of the Buffaloes m 

a 113-76 defeat. Clinch Valley 
offered little competition for the 

Ken Leatherwood and Jerry 
Craycraft led the scoring with 22 
and 20 points respectively. Ken 
was hot and completed eight of 
eight field goal atlmcpts, Jerry 
hit 10 out of 17 atlmepts. 

Other Milligan Buffaloes 
making up the offense were 
Marly Street with 15 points and 
Bill l^wis with 10. Milligan hit 50

second half when Jon Arvin,

Returning to King Saturday 
night with three straight wins 
tucked away, the Milligan Buf- 
faloes played an exciting game 
against King College, resulting in 
a 95-85 victory and the first place 
trophy once more. A new 

aggressiveness was displayed b>' 
Jon Zeliman who led in Milligan's

On November 29 the Milligan

the combination of good coaching 
by Phil Worrell and Dale aayton

men they coach. Our recored now 
stands at 5-1.

Attention ! 

Students Slide At Sugar 

Since 1971. Milligan College has 
been offering a ski class in the 
spring semester for Physical 
Education credit 

The Classes are held at Sugar 
Mountain Ski Resort, which is 
near Banner Elk. North Carolina, 
a one hour's drive from Milligan. 
Coach Walker attends the 
sessions with the Milligan 
students however the resort 
supplies instructors for the 

The first year the class was 
offered, 120 students took the 
course for credit. Since that time 
the average enrollment has 
dropped to thirty or thirty-five. 
This year the enrollment is quite 
low; only twelve students are 
taking the course for credit. 

Previously the price was S44.00 
for seven sessions with in- 
struction, equipment and use of 
the lift all aftej-noon and evening. 
This year the orice has been 


The Milligan Intersession 
Program offered to Milligan 
students during Christmas 
vacation was a success in that the 
program met the needs of the 
students which it involved There 
were approximately 45 students 
participating in the program. 
Whether the program will be 
offered again will be left up to the 
academic committee The 
committee will evaluate the 
program and decide if it should 
be continued. 

increased to $55.80 for six 
sessions with instruction and 
equipment and use of the lift in 
the afternoons only "This may 
account for the drop in 
enrollment." Coach Walker 

"Students are often surprised 
at the rapid progress they 
make," Coach Walker said "We 
have had many students go on 
and become very good skiers," 

Students that have their own 
equipment are best able to take 
advantage of the ski resorts in 
this area Coach Walker advised. 

■■Well-fitted equipment, 
especially boots, is a key to 
becoming a good skier." 

This class provides students a 
good opportunity to try skiing and 
decide if they wish to invest in 
equipment. As Coach Walker 
pointed out, "boots alone can cost 
$300; even a cheap i>air would 
cost about $75 " 

The ski program at Milligan 
has a very good record for safety. 
Since the beginning of the class, 
there has been only one injury: a 
broken arm. 


When so-and-so overheard so- 
and so whisper to no one in par- 
ticular: "Another Helicon 
Concert^" he became aroused, 
iwell. maybe not, but at least 

You see, music like people is 
always changing and he didn't 
know how it was He didn't know- 
how his friends had changed 
Even being the up-to-date student 
informed, he had somehow 
neglected his friends. Perhaps. 
his music had eluded him also. 
Was he aware of the innovations, 
new additions, and further 
complications of our beloved 
standard 3 chord rock and roll?,

church, a burial mound from the

of the student body were some 
positive factors that greeted the

Student Offers Transitional Talk 

By Pam Coon 

What does a Chicagoan do on 
returning to Milligan after a year 
and a half "sabbatical" at 
Northern Illinois University? 

She tells Milligan about it 

Everyone who attends a state 
university is not "just a num- 
ber," is not a junkie, an alcoholic, 
a dro[>-out, a groupie, or a 
radical. Students at a large 
university are just as concerned 
about their studies, just as 
apathetic, and just as aware (or 
not! of world affairs Life at 
N,I.U., however, is rather dif- 
ferent than life at Milligan. 

Students lend to mature in 
proportion to the responsibility 
they are given At N.I.U, students 
are responsible for themselves 
under state laws, according to 
those that apply to their par- 
ticular ages. To be caught 
committing an offense is to be 
answerable to written law rather 
than homemade punishments. 
Students left on their own do not 
fall apart, but develop the 
responsibility necessary to living 
as an adult. 

Academicdlly, Milligan rates 
higher than N.I U Because it is 
small and private it can be 
flexibleand innovative in courses 
and programs. 1 generally 
learned more in my classes at 
Milligan. ClasF; size is about the 
same in troth places, as well as 
teacher-student ratio 

The University sponsers 
weekly movies and an Artist 
Series I saw several classic 
movies. I also saw the Stockholm 
Philharmonic Orchestra and the 
Royale Shakespeare Company, 
for example. Since there are over 
20.000 in the university, and 
another 30.000 in town, there are 
many things to do in the com- 
munity that are geared for 
college-age people. The 
University provides a bus service 

which runs through the campus 
and the town, so transportation 
need not be a problem to get 

The dorms at N I.U.. which 
bouse about 9.000 students, are 
filled to capacity. The rest of the 
student body live off campus, 
either in an apartment, a boar- 
ding house, a regular house, or a 
fraternity or soroity The dorm 
rooms there are smaller than 
Milligan's are, and most of the 
furniture is immobile All dorms 
are co-ed. with males and 
females in separate wings. 
(There are a few co-ed floors 
scattered here and there, and. 
except for segregated 
bathrooms, life is the same on 
these floors as on any other.) 
Each floor has its own two 
regulations - type of visitation 
and evening quiet hours - and 
residents of the dorms choose the 
floor they want to live on E^ch 
dorm has two cafatenas.and an 
ID card is required for entry 
We had "Super Suppers" too. 

People make friends in their 
dorms, at mixers, in class, and 
through outside activities I met 
most of my friends through a 
Christian group I fellowshipped 
with there The Christians at' 
N I U see their failh as a bond 
between one another, rather than 
a taken-for-granted common 
denominator Christian students 
are more Christ -centered than 
church-centered, and, because 
Christians are a minority there, it 
IS easier to understand what "set 
apart" means. Fellowship is 
precious, and it is of a spiritual 
nature rather than social 

I enjoyed being part of a large 
college community Sometimes 1 
longed for strangers to be more 
friendly, sometimes I cherished 
my anonymity. I am grateful for 
the experience of both N.I.U and 
Milligan, for I have found my

Title IX: Milligan Must 
Respond Effectively By Mary 


On Decembt-r 10, 1975. a memo 
was sent lo Milligan College 
dormitory students from Mrs 
Fontaine concerning the college's 
response to the regulations of 
Title IX Many of the statements 
presented were valid, and it is 
important that we try to un- 
derstand the problems faced by 
the administration in dealing 
with this situation. However, I 
believe that there are several 
ideas that merit consideration. 

Mrs. Fontaine stressed a vital 
point in her statement thai "the 
regulations of Title IX appear to 
violate "the federal govern- 
ment's promise that il "would not 
interfere in higher education" It 
seems that the United Slates' c 
government has a steadfast 
reputation for breaking 
promises However, 1 don'l 
believe that this gives us the right 
lo ignore regulations set forth by 
Ihe government "Academic 
freedom" is an important 
principle worth working to attain, 
but, as a Christian college, 
Milligan has certain obligations 
to fulfill Accordmg to Romans 
13. 1-3, Christians are to "be in 

subjection to the governing 
authorities," Milligan College 
has the responsibility to do that 
which is right 

I question Mrs. Fontaine's 
assertion that "we view our 
locking of the dormitory doors 
and a curfew system as 
protective," if, from this, we are 
lo assume that the sole basis for 
these restrictions is our safety 

If this were the case, why 
would the weekend curfew be 
different from Ihe weekdays^ 
Are we to believe that it is safer 
for girls to be out past midnight 
on PViday and Saturday nights 
than on weekdays? I think that 
this indicates that there are other 
reasons behind the college's 
desire to retain the curfew 
system Perhaps one of these is 
alluded lo in the statement "We 
think that the parents and 
churches from which our 
students come expect us to offer 
this kind of protection" II seems 
that by abolishing the curfew 
system the college would face the 
loss of monetary support from 
churches and individuals. It is 
also possible thai many parents 
would not send their daughters to 

Milligan if there were no curfew 

There must be some way to 
satisfy both the government's 
demand for equality and the 
girls' need for protection One 
suggestion might to allow the 
girls to set up their own system of 
protection. I believe thai the 
studenLs at Milligan are sensitive 
and intelligent enough lo un- 
derstand the administration's 
(hlemma, and I also believe that 
Ihe girls would be able'to develop 
a system that would be safe and 
fair without making life 
miserable for either Mrs 
Robinson or Mrs. Millar For 
examfile. the girls might elect to 
have the lobbies closed and the 
doors locked at 11:(X), with a girl 
posted lo let girls in until 1:00, 
after which lime one would have 
lo make arrangements with a 
friend to get into the dorm The 
girls should be responsible for 
providing the money necessary to 
insure adequate protection, I'm 
sure that, with a little efforl and 
understanding, a solution could 
be found that would not 
necessitate disobeying govern- 
ment regulations.

A Biased Assessment 

Milligan College seems to be 
faring rather well The science 
department has a beautiful new 
building and all the proper 
laboratory facilities The music 
department has been blessed 
with adequate classroom and 
leaching areas because of Seeger 
Chapel. And, of course, the 
physical education plant com- 
posed of the Lacy Fieldhouse and 
Anglin Field would make other 
small colleges drool with envy. 

But what about the humanities 
and arts and history and Bible 
departments at Milligan? 
Doesn't a college with such an 
unusual and unique humanities 
program need an arts and 
humanities building'' 

The reason of Dr, Wetzel, the 
spirit of Anna Crowder, the 
clarity and conciseness of Mrs. 
Nipper, and the intellect of Dr. 
Dibble nor Miss Juanita Jones 
herself cannot alter the con-

Jeremiah Presents New Covenant I Seif-Criticism «, 


"See, Days are coming" is the 
burden of YHWH, "When I will 
make a new covenant with the 
household of Israel and with the 
household of Judah. not like the 
covenant which I made with their 
fathers on the day that I took 
them by the hand to lead them out 
of the land of Egypt — that 
covenant of mine which they 
broke, so that I had to reject them 

— but this is the covenant which I 
will make with the household of 
Israel ... I will put law within 
them, and will write it on their 
hearts . . . And they shall teach no 
more everyone his neighbor, and 
everyone his brother, saying 
"Know the Lord'; for all of them 
shall know me. from the least of 
them to the greatest of them " 

By John Ray 

The distinctive contribution of 
Jeremiah to Hebrew prophecy 
has oft been neglected Whereas 
earlier prophets had focused on 
the contract between YHWH and 
Hebrew society. Jeremiah ad- 
vances the concept of valid 
contracts between YHWH and 
the individual. Jeremiah also 
attaches a decree of individual 

"In those days shaH'they say no 
more. "The fathers have eaten 
sour grapes and the children's 
teeth are set on edge', but 
everyone shall die for his own 
guilt — everyone who eats the 
sour grapes shall have his own 
teeth set on edge," 

Jeremiah's idea that men are 
directly responsible to face God 

far their conduct means that men 
can no longer shift blame to the 
society for their own actions !n 
addition, religion or spiritual 
living becomes a personal and 
subjective relationship between a 
man and God. For Jeremiah's 
contemporaries, the validity of 
temple sacrifices and of the king 
was made secondary or even 
nullified, Jeremiah's message 
should remind the person of the 
new covenant that he only an- 
swers to God for himself, Weekly 
attendance at communion ser- 
vices, contributions to chanties 
and church offerings and af- 
filiation with the right political 
parties which occur in response 
to sociocentric demands are 
neithercredi nor debit to the new 
covenant . * ,

in the congregation of a church in 
Tennessee, At that time. I had 
been in the United States of 
America for a few months I was 
in blue jeans and was not weanng 
a tie, I was the only one among 
the people who was not dressed 
up, I was conscious that some 
people were staring at me. 

Since it was a few days after 
Independence Day, we sang 
"God Bless America". Then. I 
realized why some people were 
wearing a tie whose pattern was 
stars and stripes. 

Since then I have met many 
people who think and act that God 
blesses ONLY America 1 did not 
agree with that idea. Therefore, I 
often argued with them, I agreed 
that God blesses America, This 
must be true. But I insisited that 
God blesses Czechoslovakia. 
Taiwan, South Vietnam and 
People's Republic of China as 
well as America, This was my 
strong belief. 

Time has passed and my strong 
belief has seemed to have gone 
bankrupt 1 have come to think 

that maybe. God blesses O^JLY 
America. I am extremely sad, 
certainly not because 1 am not an 
American citizen, but because I 
have lost confidence in my belief 
on this subject,, * 

However, this is the fact and I 
should not divert my eyes from it, 
I exclude sentimentalism 
definitely because I know well it 
will never produce anything. I do 
not argue any more with the 
people who think God blesses 
ONLY America, 

The main aim of this article is 
my proclamation of a reversal of 
opinion on this subject 

I will not expand this article to 
explain why I have come to think 
that God might bless ONLY 
America. This is another issue (I 
need to cover many fields to 
explain why). 

On this Bicentennial July 4lh, 1 
will be in a congregation 
somewhere in the United Stales 
and will sing ". . . from the 
mountain, to the ocean, God bless 
America " This time. I shall 
have no quarrel with those who 
believe that Gold blesses ONLY 

Mahagony: Montage of Clothing, etc 

it should be Diana Ross' finest 
film but it isn't, "Mahogany" 
emerges merely as a montage of 
clothing and cinmatography 
Actually "Mahogany ' could have 
been an explicit documentary on 
the fashion industry, a witty love 
story, or a social comment film. 
However, it is based in every 
area with little transitory power 

The contrived plot is set in 
Chicago's south side where Tracy 
Chambers, Diana Ross, lives in a 
tenement, works in a department 
store, and studies fashion design. 

Conflict arises as Tracy un- 
successfully attempts to fuse the 
best of her worlds 

Influential in her development 
is Sean McAvory i .\nthony 
Perkins) a major photographer 
in fashion, who enlists Tracy as 
his protege in Rome 

Equally influential is Brian, 
Billy Dee Williams, an aspiring 
politician, social activist. 

When Tracy flits off to Rome 
with Sean, Brian futily tries to 
coax her back to Chicago Con- 
sequently. Tracy shuns Brian and

her heritage As her fame in- 
creases in the fashion world. 
Tracy accepts the irrecon- 
cilability of ner past and present 
All ends typically as she returns 
to Chicago 

Directed by Berry Cody, 
produced by Rob Cohen. 
"Mahogany" lacks sequential 
cohesivness Consequently, the 
cast has few opportunities to 
develop their characters- 

Althotigh this is Diana Ross' 
film, (she designed costumes, 
wrote title song, etc i her per- 

formance is erratic in tone Her 
immense talent is stagnated by 
the inherent problems in 

Billy Dee Williams has per- 
formed better in commercials- 
Some comfort is actualized as the 
film continually weakens his 
attempts for a good performance 

Theonebrightspot of the film is 
provided by Anthony Perkins, 
Perkins, as Sean, adds creative 
spontanity to the bland dialogue 
The finest scene in the film is 

Sean's death on film by 
photographing Tracy when the 
car in which they are nding 
speeds uncontrolably H is 
perhaps the most intense scene, 
soliciting macrabre emotions. 

What would have been an in- 
tense, witty film, emerges 
melodramatic and pensive, with 
no apparent justification. 

Indeed the theme song is the 
star of "Mahogany", The 
question is relevent to the incipid 
development of the fihn and the 
audience may wonder, "Where is 
this movie going to"'"

Jama and Mike Add Diversity to Staff 

by Pete Purvis 

Jama Humphrey is a young 
lady who is a diligent member o( 
the STAMPEDE staff Jama is 
also a senior English ■ 
Humanities major from 
Lawrenceburg, Indiana tbut she 
was born in Kentucky* Jama is 
part of the STAMPEDE effort to 
begin trying to introduce 
members of our staff lo you and 
lell you some of the things that 
have happened to them, around 
them, and because of them. 

Jama has written for the 
STAMPEDE for two years. Her 
articles deal mainly with the 
entertainment field and are 
generally in the form of reviews. 
Jama says that she believes in 
being honest and candid and that 
she will glady defend any of her 
reviews, Bui please don't accept 
that as a challenge. Last year 
Jama worked as a member of the 
HELICON staff. Jama really 
enjoys expressing her views in 
written form. 

You might remember Lady 
Brockhurst from the musical The 
Boyfriend that was put on by the 
Milligan College Drama 
Department last semester. If you 
do remember, you might also 
have noticed that' it was Jama

enjoys reading. plays almost as 
much as much as she likes actmg 
in them. Some of her favorite 
plays are by Neil Simon and 
Edward Albee Being an English 
- Humanities major. Jama 
almost has to enjoy reading a lot 
and she does She likes to read 

novels, magazines, and anything 
interesting. Jama has been 
reading lately from Herman 
Hesse and James Thurber. but 
the thing that fascinates her the 
most is anything written on 
Cinema history. 

As far as Jama's future is 
concerned, nothing is really 
definite yet She is thinking atxHit 
going into some kind of public 
work next year and plans to be in 
Cincinnati, Jama has also sent in 
applications for teaching 
positions, however, due to an 
experience she had last semester 
while student leaching she is a bit 
apprehensive about teaching. On 
her first day of class a dissident 
student who apparently wasn't 
too thriUed by Jama's technique 
blow up a bomb in her class. 
Needless lo say Jama was rather 
flabt)ergasted by this harrowing 
brush with rude terrorists, but 
she has since recovered and is 
considering going into a teaching

Canada to travel and study in 
Spain. Last summer 69 students 
from 28 states departed from 
JFK Airport in New York and 
flew to Malaga and then to 
Madrid, where the 11th summer 
program was held. 

Thirty students visited San- 
tiago de Compostela and Leon

Buffs take Ohio Classic 

By Leigh Cook 

While everyone else was en- 
joying their Christmas vacation, 
our Buffs were busy preparing 
for the Wooster Classic on 
December 29 and 30. and the Hall 
of Fame Classic scheduled for 
January 2 and 3 Their 
preparation was not in vain . 
Miliifian fought hard and brought

no more than a stepping stone,

ran high as many good players 

fouled out on both sides and the

E. T. S. Reports Test Changes 

Education Testing Service (ETS) 
reports several major changes in 
two national testing programs 
whose scores are used as part of 
the admissions process in many 
of the nation's graduate schools. 

Both programs, the newly- 
titled Graduate Management 
Admission Test (GMATi and the 
Graduate Record Examinations 
(GRE). together test more than 
400.000 perspective graduate 
students every year 

ETS says the changes were 
made to help simplify the test- 
taking process by making it more 
accomodating for student can- 

The GMAT formerly was called 
the Admission Test for Graduate 
Study in Business. The new name 
parallels a similar change in the 
sponsoring council's name — 
reflecting a trend among 
graduate business schools to 
broaden their curricula and 
degree titles to include other 
areas of administration, as well 
as business 

The program is developed and 

National Campus Scene 

conducted by ETS for the 
Admission Council for Graduate 
Study in Management, a group 
representing 43 graduate schools 
of management. 

Another significant change in 
the GMAT is an expanded ad- 
mission ticket correction form 
that allows the candidate to 
verify, and correct if necessary, 
the accuracy of the formation he 
or she provided ETS on the 
registration form Walk-in 
registration, established during 
the 1974-75 academic year, also 
will be honored, space and 
material permitting. 

There are also several new 
additions to the GRE For the 
first time, a full-length sample 
GRE aptitude test is available to 
give candidates an accurate view 
of the scope of the test and the 
type of questions it contains. The 
sample test is the same length 
and formal as the currently used 
forms of the aptitude test, and 
contains questions previously 
used in past tests An answer key 
IS provided The sample aptitude 
test may be ordered separately 

ur as pari of the Graduate 
Programs and Admissions 
Manual, which provides in- 
formation about more than 500 
institutions and their graduate 
programs. See the 1975-76 GRE 
Information Bulletin for more 

The aptitude test also has been 
shortened by five minutes from 
the former three-hour total And 
an estimated additional 15 
minutes of student time at the 
test center has been saved by 
soliciting background in- 
formation on the registration 
form rather than at the center 

For the first time, GRE can- 
didates will be allowed at the 
time of the lest administration to 
delete or change the list of in- 
stitutions to which scores are to 
be sent 

The GRE program also will 
continue lo accept waik-in 
registrations, if center space and 
materials are availatjie. and 
after all normally registered 
candidates have been -admitted. 

Students Win Drinking Rights 

(CPSt — While the specter of 
alcoholism is haunting more 
college campuses these days, 
many universities are relaxing 
their rules prohibiting drinking in 
residence halls and campus bars. 

In recent months, universities 
in at least four slates have edged 
toward or approved limited 
drinking on campus One of the 
arguments frequently given for 
liberalized on-campus drinking 
policies IS thai drinking in dorm 
rooms is so widespread that it 
might as well be legal 

In fact, one out of ever>* 20 
college students is a problem 
drinker, according to statistics of 
the Department of Health 
Education and Welfare, And 
almost half the college students 
surveys recently by a Chicago- 
based advertising agency said 
they bought carry-oul liquor at 
least once a month 

That liquor can now t>e con- 
sumed in the privacy of a 
student's own dorm room at 
Oregion Stale University where 
students 21 years and older were 
given permission to drink in their 
rooms last summer The new rule 
at Oregon State forbids drinking 
in public places like lounges or 
dining halls 

I'he Oregon policy also forDias 
drunkenness. But enforcement 
efforts are not likely to be 
rigorous The University is 
counting on the "living groups." 
not the University ad- 
ministration, to keep track of 
who's drinking and how much. 

The right to drink in a dorm 
room hasn't been as easily won at 
other schools Students at 
Marshall University in Hun- 
tington, W Va are battling the 
University administration just 
for the privilege of drinking 3,2 
beer on campus According to 
West Virginia law, 3 2 beer is not 

Marshall students have been 
pushing for 3 2 beer on campus 
smce 1969 Until last spring, it 
was up to the University 
president lo decide whether 
students could drink on campus. 

But this summer, liquor was 
prohibited on all West Virginia 
campuses Since this fall, the 
Marshall University president 
has had the final say and students 
now have "some hope of ap- 

The tactics that students have 
used lo win the right to drink on

Jim Schneider, who was 
ineligible for court action last 
semester, is now making up for 
lost time, Ken Leatherwood

the number one man bv far where 

field goals are concerned and he

it appears that the Buffaloes are

VSAC champs. 

drinking in a matter of only a few 
months The Wesleyan board 
reaffirmed its opposition to liquor 
in the dormitories but said iLs use 
was up lo the "judgement and 
social responsibility of students." 

The action at Nebraska 
Wesleyan convinced students at 
the University of Nebraska at 
Lincoln to take another stab at 
liberalizing drinking policies 
there But student association 
president Jim Say predicted that 
"there is almost no hope of 
getting approval through I he 
regents." and a proposal to the 
state legislature would probably 
be a more effective way of 
winning the right lo drink. 

Students al other schools are 
working for the sale of liquor on 
campus as well Arizona State 
University student association 
president Craig Tribken this fall 
launched a campaign calling for 
the sale of wine and beer on 
campus Students of legal 
drinking age at Arizona State are 
already permitted to drink in 
their residence halls 

"The stigmatizing of alcohol off 
campus gives it idnnking m

Academic Dean Dr. C. R. Wetzel Resigns 

Dr CR Wetzel. Academic 
Dean since the 1970-71 school 
year, has resigned from the of- 
fice, effective this fall. 

Dean Wetzel's decision has 
come as the result of personal re- 
evaluation which led him to 
realize that he wanted lo be able 
to give more lime leaching, lo 
have more lime lo study in the 
field and to spend more time with 
his family. 

Concerning his office, he feels 
that "for the lime being. I've 
done all 1 can do Besides, it's the 
kind of office that needs to be 
passed around " 

President Johnson has not yet 
chosen a replacement 

Dr. Wetzel is leaving the ad- 
ministration on a positive note, "I 
have not felt that this was a 
thankless job ! have felt very 
much honored to serve as 
Academic Dean I've found it to 

be a hard job but hardness 
doesn't exclude enjoyment I 
came lo see my job as a leaching 
ministry and at that point I quit 
feeling hasseled, it became very 
satisfying, ll's been a broadening 
experience I remember ihe 
enjoyable moments more than 
the hard." 

"In any comparisons, "Dean 
Wetzel reflected." even with 
Cambridge. 1 prefer Milligan 1 
would choose the quality of 
students here, in terms of 
Christian, social and Academic 
concern, more rounded students 
come through Milligan," 

As for his own future plans. Dr. 
Wetzel says he is "genuinely 
looking forward to the op- 
portunity lo get writing done for 
publication." He is now editing a 
book of collected essays on the 
New Testament Church. 

Dr Wetzel plans to study 
languages intensively as well as 
return lo full-time teaching in 
Humanities and Philosophy 
Although he is looking forward to 
the change, he realizes it may be 
difficult Dr'Wetzel commented, 
"its not easy to shift gears once 
you've setUed in - but good" 

Dr Wetzel observed that there 
have been encouraging im- 
provements made by the faculty 
during his years as dean. "It's 
been very satisfying lo see the 
growing quality of the faculty 
during this time, not only in new- 
people but also in the number of 
faculty that have gone back to 
school and improved their 
programs and published They 
have conveyed to students 
confidence ji the purpose of the 
college and we have a fine 
learning atmosphere now A vital 
faculty equals a vital student

lo help raise the funds so badly 
needed by the athletic depart- 
ment The proceeds from these 
projects will help expand op- 
portunities available to the 

Milligan College athlete. Right 
now the baseball team has to 
raise over $100 per man in crder 
to make iheir annual spnng tour 
to Florida, and the women's 
tennis team will have to get their 
own funds if they are lo represent 
Milligan at the Slate Finals in 
Nashville later this semester. 

The L^ttermen's Club hopes to 
tx" able to help alleviate some of 
these financial strains through 
different projects. Plans to 
create a student lounge over in 
the lower level of the fieldhouse 
are being discussed. The only 
way any of these dreams can 
become attained goats is through 
the support of the faculty, ad- 
minislration. and mainly, the 
student body. Help decide the 
future of Milligan athletics by

Milligan Hosts Choral Festival 

The Eighth Annual Choral 
Festival was held m Seeger 
Memorial Chapel on February 7, 
1976. Each year students from 
local high schools combine to 
present the festival under a guest 
conductor. The guest conductor 
for this years' festival was John 
C Wakefield, Professor of Voice 
and Director of Choral activities 
here at Milligan College Pianist 
was Connie Percifield and Gene 
Estep. organist 

The students, with two days of 
rehearsal, presented the festival. 
Only Ihree high schools were 
involved this year They were 
EHzabethton High. Sulhvan East, 
and Greeneville. 

The primary purpose of the 
festival was to provide an 
educational experience for the 
students and also to acquaint the 
students with Milligan College.

"can you type?'

■'how about simple 



"what on earth can you do''" 

"everything you can ! " 

we are women - people 

free to do what we want 

live the way we choose 

look the way we like 

say the way we feel 

you must all accept this. 

The above is a straight forward 

poem by Susan Polis Schutz - it 

contains no rose symbols, no 

painted glass, no budding crocus. 

Its message is obvious, and I once 

wondered why men are so slow to 

accept it. but now I know why 

It's because women are. 

When a woman - a girl, a 

female, a college student - can 

identify herself only m terms of a 

man. she is not a self-respecting 
person in her own eyes, but a 
figment of someone's 

imagmation She is a Nomad 
waiting for someone to build her 
a home, and when he arrives, her 
real life can begm 

Here are some examples of this 

— a popcorn party in the girls' 
dorm at which the topic of con- 
versation was "catching" a guy; 

— my friend Pat. who has 
undefined relationships with both 
Julius and Marcus; if she has to 
decide between them, her 
decision will depend on which of 
the two wants to "get serious;" 

— I was once part of an all- 
female Bible study group whose 
focus was "The Role of the 
Christian Woman" We were 
single, unattached people, and 
yet the discussions were con- 
sistently about how lo behave 
around a Christian man: 

— when I asked a few girls 
whai kind of article they would 
like to see in this Stampede, they 
suggested one announcing the 
vhgibility of ihemselves as dates- 

Now I'm not asking Milligan 
females to discard clothing m the 
creek, boycott men. or lake up 
arms I'm only asking that we be 
lealislic We are young, we are 
working toward college degrees, 
and the world is being opened to 
women We can do almost 
.inything we want to We can 
marry and raise children as well 
as beccme a surgeon, a jockey, a 
mine worker, or anything else, 
Wc all know it We're just con- 
didlioned to finding a date and a 
male — hut our dating and our 
mating will be morf interesting 
when we respect ourselves as

am a person, proud to be a 
woman I am -j woman, proud to 
be alive "

Dr. Yamamori Leaves 

While attending a Jesuit 
University in his hometown of 
Nagoya. ipop 3.5O0.0O0i, Tet- 
suano Yamamori was introduced 
lo Christianity by a chaplain of 
the United States Air Force. 
Chaplain Gordon, who is now the 
executive vice-president of 
Pacific Christian College, con- 
vinced the young Yamamori to 
interrupt his pre-law ■ pre- 
diplomat plans for just one year 
of study al Gordon's alma mater. 
Northwest Christian College 
During that year. Mr Yamamori 
was influenced by Dr Donald 
McGavran. then the head of 
missions at Northwest Sub- 
sequently. Yamamori concluded 
that preaching the word of God 
was a more direct route lo peace 
than through diplomatic chan- 
nels. It was also during this year 
that the young Yamamori and an 
upperclassman dormmate. 
Leroy Lawson. considered 
starting a Christian College in 
Japan In conjunction with this 
plan, Yamamori talked Roy 
lawson into pursuing a Ph.D. in 
English Literature However, a 
later health problem prohibiiied 
the plan from materializing 

AlltT giadualing Irom .NCC, 
Mr 'Yamamori pursued his 
doctorate in sociological studies 
al Texas Christian University 
While there he ministered to 
Eastside Chrsitian Church in 
Dallas The cultural diversity 
within this urban congregation, 
from ghetto youth to millionaries, 
allowed Mr Yamamroi to ex- 
plore the ways in which he could 
mosi effectively communicate 
the gospel He was interested in 
creating 'a dynamic welling-up" 
nf the Holy Spirit in not only the 
regular church members but also 
in I hose who might only be 
coming lo church one last time 
before they commit suicide His 
interest and his studies at TCU 
resulted in the publication of 
Church Growih m Japan, a 
Irealise on the growth of 
Japanese protestantism from 
1859 ■ 1939 

To make a long story a bit 
shorter. Dr Yamamori con- 
tinued his education at Duke 
There, i n 1 967, Roy Lawson 
acquainted him with Milligan

Reaching Out In Love 

John 13: 34.35 

"A new commandment 1 give 
to you. that you should love one 
another, even as I have loved 
you, that you also love one 
another. By this all men will 
know that you are My disciples, if 
you have love for one another." 

Not infrequently a starry-eyed 
youth or weeping minister will 
stand before a congregation and. 
like a modem-day Teresa of 
Avila, softly intonate the word 
"love" over and over One of 
their favorite love quotation- 
passages appears above 

Yet the adherents of this 
"love" often associate the word 
with "feeling good" and I'm o.k., 
you're ok. nonsense They often 
skip right past the word "com- 
mandment" and Ignore the 
necessity of "doing" love and of 

By: John Ray 

"implementmg" love Love acts 
Just as frequently people try to 
masquerade self-infatuation for 
agape (carei love They have 
those people close to them that 
act and talk the same way they do 
and in their select circles they 
show "love " They love people 
who are "with it" or, in their own 
seif-righteousness, they love 
those who are "true Christians" 
or "Spiritual Christians" 
Regardless of the labels they 
prefer, their egocentricism is not 
hidden by their liquidishness. 
Love seeks not its own 

Regrelably. the word love has 
also been used lo realionalizc 
oen's buckling to intimidation 
The wife who is beaten by her 
husband and yet continues to lei 
him beat away claims she fails lo 

act because of love But what 
good will that rationazliation be 
when he's locked away for 
manslaughter'' A kid doesn't 
stand up and defy the people he 
knows that are messing with 
dope, stealing property, or set- 
ting off false fire alarms. His 
"love" or "concern" means 
nothing. He's letting innocent 
people be exposed to their ac- 
tivity and is allowing them to 
remain slaves of their own im- 
pulsiveness Love casts out fear. 
"They'll know we are 
Christians by our love, by our 
love, yes, they'll know we are 
Christians by our love." Let's not 
kid ourselves Unless our love 
actively reaches out to those that 
are different than us and-or, who 
would intimidate us, "they'll 
know" nolhine 

Issues In Entertainment 

Adam And Eve 

Deserving mention is the 
"History of Adam and Eve", 
from Mark Twain's. The Apple 
Tree, which was presented at 
Emmanuel's Valentine Banquet 
last weekend 

Directed by Holly Sias. 
starring Cheryl Gallagher - Eve, 
Dick Major - Adam, and Paul 
Blowers - Satan, the show proved 
highly entertaining Quick paced 
script was enhancedby the dead- 
pan delivery of Dick Major, while 
the mellowness of Cheryl 
Gallagher added depth lo Eve. 

Paul Blowers was leriffic as 
Satan. Before the first line was 
delivered, the tuxedoed Blowers 
had won over the audience, as 
well as Eve, with his marvelous 
eye movements

It was an atlempl to bring

The "Odd Couple", written by 
Neil Simon, made its Milligan 
debut on Feb 20 and 21 

Directed by the cast, an 
ominous undertaking, the "Odd 
Couple" remains a conventional 

endciivtjr Felix is still trying lo 
change Oscar's untidy ways. 

Although a worthy un- 
dertaking, inconsistencies did 
emerge. Careless deliveries of 
lines and props added tn the 
distraction from a solid scrip! 
Lines, as well as props, were 
flung about needlessly 

The humor in the script carries 
the show as Simon intended 
Perhaps the procuring of an 
overdone Norman Lear gag. the 
resounding, flushing toilet was an 
attempt in achieving realism, 
however, it succeeded in up-

forma nee The show stealin, 
scene may be attributed to 
Shannon's ladle and apron scene 
Vocality and facial expression 
carried the numerous comic lines 
of Felix to the achievement of 
accurate timing, the mosl im- 
portant ingredient in this show, 

Gary Richardson played Oscar 
Madison to the hilt in regards to 
sloppiness In some instances this 
total integration of character and 
performing technique was viable 
However, the element of subtlety 
was not manifested to the fullest 
extent, reducing another wise, 
adequate performance. 

Rick Kelly gave an ex'- 
ceptionally admirable per- 
formance as he exemplified the 
necessary concentration 
required for a supporting role 

Other members include Dirck 
Spenser, Mark Richardson. Jack 
Orth, Paula Elam, and Debbie 

Considering the lack of 
production time and self- 
direction. the "Odd Couple" 
again substantially survives its 
attempt lo elicil order out of 

Late T.V. 

There are alternatives to the 
insominac syndrome of counting 
sheep and other late-night 

Although daytime television is 
generally poor with a few im- 
provements during the family 
hour, late-night T V is of high 
quality Perhaps the most 
engaging and absurd en- 
tertainment occurs between 11:30 
p m and 2:00 a m Particularly 
popular are the Johnny Carson 
Show and Tomorrow, both on 

Monday through Friday Carson 
presents monologues and in- 
terviews with diversity and a 
nonchalant manner 

Written by reputable comedy 
writers. Carson's monologues 
open the show, setting the pace 
for the evening's discourse. If the 
monologue doesn't work, Carson 
is infamous for milking laughs 
throughout the remainder of the 
show Often the audience 
reluctantly responds, wishing 
they'd laughed the first lime 


Many personalities decline lo 
ap[>ear with Carson However, 
the adventuresome size the op- 
portunity to flaunt their in- 
clinations toward controversy or 
witticism. The "off the cuff" 
format of the show is susceptible 
loall forms of conversation, non- 
sensical or profound, (usually the 

The Carson Show is noted for 
introducing new talents. One 
such performer who was in- 
troduced by Carson is Barbra 
Streisand, When she declined a 
recent Carson invitation. Carson 
indignantly remarked. "Four- 
teen years ago Barbra Streisand 
got her first national exposure on 
this show. After tonight, it will be 
another fourteen years before 
she's invited back again," 

Because Carson is viewed 
during the late hours, some ec- 
cenlricism emerges that fits into 
no other viewing slot. 

Stan Kann is one unique act 
that appears in the last fifteen 
minutes of the show Kann 
recently demonstrated such 
wonders as antique floor 
sweepers and new Kitchen 
utensils Naturally, nothing 
cooperates with Kann. and he is 
the epiiomy of man versus 
machine, all in fun' 

As far as guest hosts, few are 
successful in carrying the show- 
Frequenter McClean Stevenson 
is by far the most erratic of the 

Joan Rivers is one of the better 
hosts Rivers possesses enough 
good material of her own to carry

Even so. Tonight is Johnny 
Carson's show, geared to his style 
alone Should Carson lake a 
permanent vacation. Tonight 
would be wise to do the same 

Well worth the wait till 1:00

there Is a concept of the hand- 
some among the monkies If so, 
how does this concept affect these 
animals' choice of their spouses '' 

When he came back to his 
house in the evening, his wife was 
nol there and he found a message 
on the kitchen table, "I have 
accepted your suggestion, and 1 
shall iry lo get a handsome 
husband Good bye" He was 
surprised very much and began 
to search for his wife, but he 
recalled suddenly his late 
grandfather's words, "After a 
woman has said 'Good bye', don'l 
attempt lo win her again." 

Next day. he didn't go to Ihe 
bank of which he was a finance 
manager. He was a very 
aggressive businessman and had 
been always ihe right hand man 
to the president TARO loved 
HAN.AKO very much After 
HANAKO had left her home and 
her husband. TARO began to plan 
to leave Japan, his homeland, 
because he was convinced Ihal a 
life without HANAKO would be 
meaningless for him Finally. 
TARO left Japan and took 
residence with Eskimoes. where 
he remained Ihe resl of his life 
There was an Eskimo village 
around north latitude 70 degrees, 
He had been very interested in 
Eskimoes and a mountain which 
was close to this Eskimo's 
village Because the mountain 
hadn't been climbed by anyone, 
TARO wanted very badly lo 
climb that mountain. The name 
of the mountain is KARI 

TARO chose to take with him 
the Bible, a copy of astronomy 
and a hand book of zoology. Jean 
Fabres "The insect world " and 
poems in order to read in the 
Eskimo's village. Since north 
latitude 70 degrees is tundra, he 
didn'l choose books on botany 
However, he got some reference 
books on moss and mold 

The airplane left smoggy 

When he arrived at the 
Eskimo's village, he burned his 
passport which was issued by the 
Japanese government 

TARO's new life began As soon 
as he arrived al Ihe village, the 
master of the village made a 
snow house for TARO How kind 
he was It was very difficult for 
him lo get accustomed lo a new 
way of life No vegetable or fruit 
grew on the tundra; TARO ate 
(more likely swallowed) raw 
meat even though he wanted to 

cook It The Eskimos ale seals, 
sea lions, walruses, etc 

The Eskimo diet caused TARO 
to have serious elim:nalion 
problems, and, even though he 
had expected Ihis even before he 
left TOKYO, he didn't bnng any 
medicine for Ihis He didn't want 
lo gel a benefit from civilization. 
After two months, he finally 
adjusted himself lo the foods In 
fact, he soon learned that seal's 
eyes were delicious and that he 
could relish Ihe intestines of the 

One day. the master of the 
village said to TARO. "You are 
very different from the people 
who have come here before, 
While Ihey were here, they ate 
Ihe food in Iheir lent which ihey 
ha^l broughl from their own 
country," TARO realized thai the 
master was talking aboul PhD 
candidates who had visited the 
Eskimoes and had written a 
ihesis for Ph D When he was in 
Tokyo, he was upsel to see the 
reports of some anthropologists 
who felt superior and did not 
understand the culture of ihe 
primitive tribes. For some an- 
Ihropologisls the primitive tribes 
existed only to assist the can- 
didate in completing his thesis for 
PH D, The master aksed TARO 
again "Why did you come here"*" 
TARO answered honestly by 
saying "I was divorced from my 
beautiful wife For me. she was 
everything. After my divorce. I 
didn't have any reason lo remain 
in Ihe civilized world " The 
master asked "What is the 
reason for ihe divorce?" TARO 
didn't wani lo tell the reason He 
tried to change the subject and 
said. "Everybod> ihoughl Ihal 
my former wife. HANAKO, was 
very beauliful " The master said. 
"Do you have HANAKOs pic- 
ture''" TARO showed it lo Ihe 

When Ihe master saw 
HANARO'S picture, he suddenly 
began lo laugh loudly TARO 
couldn't understand why the 
master was laughing TARO 
said, "Why are you laughing''" 
He finally slopped laughing and 
said. "Was she really your 
wife''" TARO said. "Yes." The 
master responded, "I am sorry 
How come did you marry such an 
ugly woman'' Even if I can get 
MANY seals, I wil! never marry 
such an ugly woman You should 
he pleased l}ecause she is nol 
your wife " TARO was upset 
when the master said HANAK*) 
was ugly TARO slill loved her 
When "TARO was in Tokyo. 
everybody said HANAKO was 
very beautiful Why nol in the 
Eskimos village'' TARO showed 
HANAKOs picture lo all men in 
Ihe village There was a complete 
consensus thai HANAKO was 
ugly From his snowhouse, he 
liiok out a movie magazine in 
which Ihere was a picture of a 
lamnus HolywotxJ actress TARO 
observed an intellectual beauty 
in the face of Ihis actress When 
TARO showed the actress* pic- 
ture to the master, he said. "1 will 
never marry her even If 1 can get 


MANY seals " TARO realized 
Ihiil Eskimos sense of beauty Is 
'\ery much different Irorn that of 
Ihe people in the civilized world. 
Primitive people in the world 
must have their own sense of 
beauty though the concept of 
beauty is faiily homogeneous in 
Ihe- civilized world TARO 
thought that if there was one 
person who should visll 
Eskimoes, this one should be 

Four months passed and winter 
was approaching TARO couldn't 
feel comfortable until he finished 
climbing Ml Kan, which he had 
planned lo climb Wfore he left 
Tokyo The fad that Ml, KARI 
had not been climbed by anybody 
attracted TARO very much He 
Ihoughl it might take-ten days for 
him to master Ihe climb and 
come back He knew well that ho 
might be killed during this ad- 
venture. II was a really 
dangerous one Even if he had 
had a compass, it would not work 
because it was so near the north 
pole Because wmler was ap- 
proaching. TARO had lo speed up 
his plan lo cope wilh the shorl 
days and long nighls 

One day, he talked to the 
master aboul his plan The 
master couldn't understand why 
TARO wanted to climb Ml. 
KARI Eskimo didnl have a 
concept of Alpinism and ad- 
venture which had developed 
among western bourgeoisie. 
TAKO will nol get anything in 
return for his reachiriE Ihe top of 
IheMt KARI and he would spend 
a lot of energy and might 
jeopardise his lift^ The master 

s.iid lo TAKO. "Ynu are crazy " 

The master recommended 
TARt> lo go on a hunt with young 
male Eskimoes fur. several days 
instead of climbing Ml, KARI. 
But Taro didnl follow For 
Eskimoes. il is Ihe mosl difficult 
thing lo secure Iheir foods arnid 
Ihis harshest of natures. Their 
survival during the winter 
depended on the resull of Ihe 

TARO succeeded in climbing 
Ml KARI and came back ot the 
village a I the beginning of 
December Since the village was 
located higher than north latitude 
G6 degrees 50 minutes, there was 
il 24 hours nighl for several days. 

In TARO's snow house, he read 
Ihe Bible, poems, Fabre's "The 
insect world", etc Suddenly he 
felt that his skin was irritated. 
What could be the cause except 
the bite of fleas! He thought God 
made fleas in His own image just 
as He had made human beings in 
His own image. Why do human 
beings have a right lo destroy 
God's creation The fleas con- 
iinued to suck his blood. 

After several days, the 24 hour 
nighls began TARO often went 
outside lo see the stars He could 
>ee Ihe north star almost above 
his head Millions of stars made 
him really happy. It had been 
hard in smoggy 'Tokyo to see as 
iiiiiny stars as he could In Ihe 
Eskimo village. He didn'l know 
linw long the night would con- 
linue TARO thought arctic 
nights were romantic ones 

Eskimoes had been treating 
TARO very well He really liked 
ihrm T,\"Hn hcIirvoH m the 

rc'lalivily of culture There is no 
superiority or inferiority among 
any Cullure. He thought it was 
wrong lo measure one culture 
with the culture in which one was 
raised Since Eskimoes were 
oriented toward a simple type of 
life, it was easier for TARO to get 
along with Ihem rather than the 
civilized people. 

TARO still had nol recovered 
from the traumatic experience of 
divorce. Western culture regards 
a divorce as a termination of a 
contract, therefore, a divorce is 
nol as traumatic lo westerners as 
It is lo the non-westernerers. 
Japan has been westernized But 
Ihe concept of the contract was 
yet not as strong In Japan as in 
the western countries The 
number of lawyers in populallor 
to certain population number was 
less than one tenth of the number 
in the US A For TARO. it was 
very hard to accept his divorce 
from HANAKO as a termination 
of conlracl. 

Time passed. TARO saw 
sunshine The long nighl was 
finally over The children in the 
village who got tired of the long 
night came out from the snow 
houses, TARO played with them 
Ho liked children and enjoyed 
playing with them Since the 
daytime was sllll not long, they 
had to stop playing soon 

As TARO was going back to his 
snow house, a very young boy 
uiih whom he had been playing 
approached him and said shyly, 
"You are my buddy"

Milligan's Staff Needs Students' Respect 

By Mary Sartoris 

Milligan Coilegr is fnrluii.ik- ui 
Ihal It has associalcd v.\\\\ il a 
number of well-educaled. highly 
respected persons who deserve a 
loi of credit for their 
achievements However, there is 
a group of people who devote a lot 
of time and hard work to make 
ihis a belter place in which lo 
live, who are virtually ignored by 
the pepple they serve We need lo 
recognize and appreciate the 
efforts of ihnse who clean and 

iTiaintain Ihe buildings, dor- 
mitories and campus here at 

Recently I spoke with one of the 
women who is partly responsible 
for Ihe upkeep of several 
buildings on campus She com- 
plained that, since the addition of 
the science building, she doesn't 
seem to have enough time lo 
really keep up with all the work 
that needs to be done Anyone 

who works as long and hard as 
she does, for such low pay. 
deserves a pat on the back and a 
word of appreciation now and 

Perhaps all of us should work a 
little harder to clean up after 
ourselves If we could all lend a 
hand and a kind word now and 
then, maybe we can make life a 
little easier and a little more 
pleasant for those who sacrifice 
so much to serve us.

Crowder's Class Clears Consciences, Compels No One 

By Kim Fisher And Hope Savely 

What has happened to 
Christianity? Il has l)ecome a 
contract with a Diety, if you 
follow certain standards. The 
ideas of Christianity and the 
approach to life were presented 
by capable teachers to a group of 
people who were structured 
differently than Jesus When ii 
was taught, the people were not 
prepared for it One must be 
made aware and prepared in 
order to put to use any part of a 
philosophy for life 

Dr, Orvel Crowder teaches a 
class on Wednesday evenings 
from 7;1)0 - 9:30, at Hopwood 
Church, in which he deals with 
Ihisexpansion of awareness This 
consists of the study of 
Chrislianity, Zen, and Yoga, or 
altered stales of consciousness 
The first hour deals with basic 
facts and knowledge and between 
8:00 and 9:30. this learned 
knowledge is experimented with 
and exercised According to Dr 
Crowder. ihe class differs from 
others in that there is more doing 
and less talking, and no exams 
are given. Instead, a notebook or 
diary is kept This class is 
recommended to anyone who 
wants to explore the frontier 
around him rather than just 
accepting his life as it is 

In every human self there is an 
infinite number of undiscovered, 
undeveloped and latent 
capacities Our body, which is the 
temple of the Holy Spirit, our 
skills, the unconscious and 
conscious thoughts and our 
"social self" should be given to 
God in order for us to be 
fashioned and grow. We must 

allow God to open our self and the 
more it is fully opened lo God. the 
harder it is to determine where 
the Christian self ends. Or does it 
end** One can develop answers 
through the information obtained 
in this class It will help one 
discover and develop his total 
capacities, and in understanding 
the self and ideas, one can come 
closer to fully allowing God to 
open Himself 

By contrasting the true 
Chnstian faith with others, one 
can gam awareness. Zen and 
Yoga are not a faith, bui a 
method or way to gain this 

awareness. They are vahd and if 
they work there is no reason why 
a Christian should ;.oi use them. 
Yoga is any method or way of 
ser\*ice by which a person en- 
deavors to bring his life into 
harmony or unity with God It is 
also a breaking of contact from 
pain A Christian should be 
stnving for this, therefore it 
makes sense to study it in 
relation to Christianity, Zen and 
Yoga may help with ihe problem 
of what not to do and what to do in 
order to bo a belter Christian 

Transcendental Meditation is 
an ancient method of focusing 

attention and turning off sym- 
bolization Its purpose is to 
transcend the usual habits of 
thought. Transcendental 
Meditation is not a religion, but a 
simple, natural technique that 
allows the mind lo transcend 
thought and come into direct 
contact with the source of 
thought. This evolution in reverse 
is part of Dr Crowder's class. 

Before one can gain the self 
control involved in Zen and Yoga, 
he must leam. In this class one 
begins with discovering what he 
must do and the rights and 
wrongs of the subject matter. 

Once these are learned, ne can 
continue and eventually reach a 
slate of disaltachment. .\on- 
attachment is the exercise of 
discrimination, where your 
desires are questioned - to be 
eliminated. Tnis creates a sense 
of peaceand freedom. Meditation 
creates the same feelings, 
coming mainly through con- 
centration, complete control of 
the mind. We are all exploring. 
Dr. Crowder believes that the 
mind of man is an unexplored 
frontier. He wishes to share his 
ideas and discoveries with us.

will leave behind many 
memories of a remarkable 

This 6 foot senior from Nash- 
ville. Tennessee was a newcomer 
to Milligan College dunng the 
1974-75 season That year, he led 
the team in scoring and helped

first place in the western division 
of the Volunteer Slate Athletic 

Now. at the end of his second year 
at Milligan College, he continues 

lu lead the team in st.oring. He 
averaged alwut 20 points per 
game and finished m the top five 
in the slate conference. In free 
throw shooting he finished at 
about No 10 in the stale con- 
ference, making about 80 percent 
of his throws 

Kenny has a right to b? pleased

District 24, which is just one step 
from being All -American, He has 
made "Who's Who in American

graduation from Milligan College 
he plans to teach a few years and 
then possibly attend law school. 

When asked about Milligan 
College's chances for another 
title next year in the conference, 
he replied that we should have a 
good chance, since Carson- 
Newman College is losing at least 
three of its starters and Ten- 
nessee Wesleyan is losing the 
same number. He thinks the title 
next year will go to Milligan 
College or Lincoln Memorial

doing very well for a brand new 
team Miss Bonner has en- 
couraged her team m a fine 
season so far. 

Among their victories, the girls 
have had wins over King College 
twice. Virginia Intermont, LMU, 
and Tusculum by forfeit The top 
all-around player this year is 

Melody Neumeister Mel is the 
top rebounder. free throw 
shooter, and leading scorer for 
the team this season. "ZIP" is 
the next highest scorer, followed 
by Barb Elliot With the starting 
five doing so well, and a strong 
bench lo rely on, the girls have 
done quite well this season, 

The girls' best games so far 
this season have been against VI 
We won our first game with them 
at a score of 67-66 However. 
when VI came to Milligan we lost 
in an overtime 75-69 The most 
recent game was at Emory and 
Henry on Wednesday afternoon. 
We lost by a 76-46 point deficit. 
Miss Bonner was heard to 
mutter. "Mother said there'd be 
days like this'" throughout the 
game The general concensus 
was that the officials did a very 
poor job 

Coming up on the agenda is a 

tournament this weekend bet-

Fountain Flows 

On Wednesday, April 1. 1976. a 
group of industrious Milligan 
men gave new life to an old 
tradition The Hopwood water 
fountain close to the ad- 
ministration building was the 
objectof their attention. The men 
involved m the operation were 
Bayard Galbraith. David Mayer, 
and Bob Judge. These men, on 
the behalf of Milligan's only 
fraternity, APO. decided that the 
Hopwood fountain needed only a 
few minor repairs in order for it 
to sprout into spring. Their ef- 
forts were not in vain After 

several hours of productive work 
the old faithful of Milligan 
College was gushing and bub- 
bl ng '^nce more The sound of 
stch J memorable Milligan 
landmark soon reminded the 
student body of the fountain's 
intended purpose The fountain 
commemorates the return of 
spnng to the hearts of winter 
weary students who are anxious 
tor the excitement of summer. 
The Hopwood fountain is a 
welcomed beauty mark lo the

The New Pool Deserves Applause 

Last fall, the Steve Lacy 
Fieldhouse was finally completed 
and open for use. For most of 
Milligan's students, faculty, and 
Staff, it was a dream come true 
For others it was a lei down to 
their expectations — especially 
for the many students who enjoy 
swimming and were looking 
forward to diving into a new 
"Olympic size'^.pool. Not only 
was the pool not rea^y for use, 
but did,Dot open untir>tiput four 
months later due to faUuce oi 
filtering equipment, a cracketj^ 
floor and countless other delays. 
Everyone is to understand, 
however, that the misfortunes 
were not the blame of any one 
perscHi in particular but perhaps 
one can blame it on fate The 
reactions of Milligan students has 
ranged from apathy to the theory 
that the pool is just another 
victim of the seemingly cursed 

by Mike Bohler 

project that would have raised a 
frenzy of laughter at a con- 
tractors' convention Finally, 
after a little physical effort and 
plenty of verbal effort on the part 
of those concerned with the 
welfare of the swimming 
students, the new pool was 
opened on March 30. 1976. 
Overlooking the facts that the 
pool is several years overdue, & 
not official Olympic size, the 
students who had to swim in a 
bacteria -filled pool in Cheek for 
most of the semester and missed 
several weeks of class are 
eternally grateful to those who 
made the opening of the pool 
possible. We are especially ap- 
preciative of Miss Bonner's 
special efforts, II it were not for 
dedicated people like her we 
would probably still be playing 
basketball and swimming in 
Cheek, We as students remain 

grateful to ihoee on the faculty 
who ha ve«hiQal genuine ccncern 
for the welfare of their students 
without regard to the criticism 
and redtape the>' may have en- 
countered along the way. For 
those of you who have not yet 
utilized the new pool I would 
encourage you to do so. Despite 
the delays and possible disap- 
pointment It is a beautiful pwA 
and a welcomed change from 
Cheek The pool is 25 meters long 
with six raong lanes and such 
facilitiesassix diving blocks, two 
diving boards *one of which is a 3 
meter high dive), a range of 
water depth from 4 to 13 feel, 
heated water, and proper life 
saving devices (just in case). 
Present pool hours are Sim., 
Mon , Wed., and Fri. from 2:00 - 
, 4:00 P.M. & Tues,. Thurs.. and 
Sal- from 7:30 - 9:30 p m. So. if 
you enjoy swimming, wading, 
diving or just need to pass the 
time, visit Milligan's newest 
facility Lord knows you've 
earned it' 

SGA Takes Student Opinion Poll 

Recently, a student govern- 
ment questionnaire was passed 
out to us in convocation It dealt 
mainly with the students' 
opinions of the student govern- 
ment association. It has six yes- 
no questions, and four fill-in the- 
blank questions, . Much like a quiz 
in humanities, if you'll padron 
bringing up the subject But it 
was far from any humanilies 
quiz, for there were no right or 
wrongquestions. Most answers to 
these questions were what you 
might have expected. And there 
were answers you might not have 
expected. These answers listed 
below are, of course, a minonty 
of the answers given. 

Question 1. Do you feel that 
student government association 
is a body representative of the 
students' wishes? The results 
from a portion of the question- 
naries showed that 53 percent 
thought it was. And. of course. 47 
percent felt that it was not 
representative. One student 
answered simply, it is 

Question 2 asked, what is the 
major purpose of the student 

government association? There 
were a barrage of answers to 
this question, from represent 
students to beats me. Other 
answers: to pretend to represent 
the students' wishes . . I didn't 
know they hada purpose , good 
question! . fight ridiculous 

rules . its's debatable. 

However, a majonty of the 
studentsseemed to agree that the 
sga's major purpose was to 
represent the students. 

Next questiOTi: number 3, In 
your opinion, is the student 
government association 
powerless"* 34 percent of the 
students said, yes, it is. whil 66 
percent, cr almost two-third, 
said, no it isn't 

Question 4. Is the student 
government association 

representative of the christian 
ideals set forth oy the college'' A 
large majority of 88 percent said 
yes; 12 percent said no. One 
student asked, is the student 
BODY (representative of the 
christian ideals)? Another wrote 
what christian ideals'* Most 
students, however, agreed that it 
was representative 

Number 5 asked, is the studeni 
government association involved 

in all the fields it should be? If no, 
where'' To this question. 58 
percent of the students, a 
majority of them, felt it wasn't 
involved; the other 42 percent 
thought it was involved where it 
shoud be. To those who answered 
no. it went on to ask where it 
should be involved. Answers 
ranged from more reform lo God 
and the economy. Other- 
answers ": commuter activities 

reform of ridiculou s rules and 
more activity lo keep people out 
of trouble individual rights 

are not protected convocation 
might be a good area to have 
more student voice can't 

count that far These suggesbons 
covered -i wide range of topics. 

Quesiiwi 6. If you were on the 
student government association 
what would you do that is not 
being done now'' There were 
more answers given to this 
questicm than any other , from 
nothing to picket ihe ad building. 
One student wro t£. have a 
stricter enforcement in security 
on campus; another said, more 
musical religious gatherings of 
students, such as the 'Gospel Gel- 
Down' of last year. Other

students answered: get a trophy 

box built for display in the 
fieldhouse , . super-Saturdays 

in which we can join together 
get the school to give money to 
women's sports, lb this question. 

students had many different 

answers to give. 

Numbe- 7. Is the student 

government a farce'' 38 percent 
of the students said. Yes it is, 
while 62 percent said, no it is not. 
Perhaps this was the most im- 
portant question, because it 

allowed the student to give his 
most honest opiniwi of the SGA

1876 Released 

A part of the tr.logy which 
began with BURR and ends with 
Vidal's new release is entitled 

Obviously a period piece, 1876 
is a histcrical myth, uniting 
assumptitms and fact, 

Vidal states that he chose the 
centenial period because, "TTie 
year 1876 was probably the low 
period in our republics histtry,' 
and knowing something about 
what happened then is useful to 
us now as times are again 
becoming too interesting for 

1976 is narrated by Charles 
Scheimerchcm Schuyler, foreign 
correspondent returning to Neu' 
York with his daughter, born and 
raised in Paris 

After readjusting to American 
culture. Schuyler anticipates 
becoming the French Am- 
bassador, with presidential 
endorsement Thus, he procures 
the acquaintance d Govancr 
Tillden, a New York democratic 
candidate for presidenL 

There have been rumors to the 
effect that the STINK has been 
traced to its P^ce of origin by two 
brave lads. They claim that the 
place is shrouded in mist and 
protected by a partially vine 
covered fence, and situated 
somewhere behind the baseball 
field. Some persons have even 
gone so far as to interpret "this 
place" as being the school's ef- 
ficient sewer system What a 
dreadful thought indeed! 

by Jama Humphrey 

Emerging as the climax of 1876 
is the election in which neither 
candidate receives a majority of 
electo-ial voles. Consequently 
Vidal accentuates the corrupCiwi 
and payoffs in the ultimate 
decisiwi made by congress. 

The plot is sprinkled with 
Schuyler's uncanny ability to 
meet famous personahties which 
include William Cullen Bryant. 
Ulysses S, Grant, and John Jacob 
Astra-, It IS not apparent whether 
Vidal is name dropping or hoping 
some charisma will rub off on 
Schuyler, W'hatcver the intention, 
the first two hundred pages read 
like social ccdumns at the height 
of the Cotillion Ball season. 

The assumed American at- 
titudes are historically relevant 
to present day citizens. 
"Amencans have always lived 
entirely in the present, and this 
generation is no different from 
mine except that nou' there is 
more of a past for them to 

Politics are also aptly parodied 
by Vidal. exposing corruption in

Clark Cares 

Dr ['Jul Clark. Milligan 
College's new Dean of Students, 
ihouJd be welcomed and ap- 
)reciated by everyone Unlike 
.ome former deans, Dr Clark's 
nain objective is not to be an 
inapproachable disciplinarian 
vho sits in an office somewhere 
lodding his head and pointing his 
inger Dr, Clark's approach to 
he deanship of the college is 
Tiuch more admirable; he 
lesires to meet specific needs of 
lU students. 

. Even though he does possess 
Tiany attnbutes. Dr. Clark's 
leanship will not be a complete 
success without the aid of 
ililligan's students. He wants to 
mow what we, as students, like 
ind dislike about our school- So, 
,'ousee, Dr, Clark's effectiveness 
IS dean relies partly on our in- 
/olvement with him. 
TVyhim, I think you'll like him! 


Two freshmen were recently a 
bit shocked when their first 
research paper was handed back 
to them. The regular grade had 
been marked out and replaced 
with a big Notations indicated 
that in the opinion of whoever 
graded the two pajjCTs, they 
were, in fact, one and the same. 

Mrs Nipper referred the two 
students to her immediate 
superior, Dean Robert Wetzel. 
Dr. Wetzel told the students that 
the chances of their having not 
cheated on the paper were 

The debate ccntinued. After a 
Humanities Staff meeting. Dr, 
Wetzel once again conferred with 


the two students. He told them 
that if they did not accept thtO 's 
on their papers that they could 
face the possibility of receiving 
double F's for the semester 

The issue is. of course, that the 
two students did not cheat on the 
paper They wrote on the same 
topic and. of course, used the 
same source. Plumb's H^lian 
tj cnai'^sji prp TTiey introduced 
their papers with the same direct 
quote, which is quite feasible. 
After all, how much does Plumb 
say about Florence? 

What would you do if you hadn't 
cheated on a paper and faced the 
possibility of i>eLng failed if you 
didn't admit your guilf 

Hurried Suppers 

The fact that the cafei£ria 
relics largely on its banquet 
facilities for its operation is quite 
obvious In fact. I think that all of 
us have been becoming aware 
lately that the banquets may be 
more important than the feeding 
of the students 

Perhaps the reason why we are 
being rushed away from supper 
is that we have already paid for 
our food, and the club or 
organization who feats on roast 
beef is c»ily about to pay for 
theirs. O*- maybe they want us to 
leave the cafeteria before our 
indigestion sets in Regardless of 
why we are being hurried away 
from meals. I feel sure that I'm 
not alone in protesting this ac- 

I read the announcement 
regarding early supper I enter 
ihecafelena at a quarter till six. 
At SIX o'clock sharp some 
banquet worker announces that 
everyone who is finished eating 
must make their exit quickly. 
Thelighlsgooff. I'mshoved from 
table to table and corner to 

What, may I ask, can possibly 
be more unpleasant than such a 
disruptive meaP 

After a full day of classes, 
many students look to the supper 
hour as a time for relaxing and 
socializing before an evening of 
pressing study The way things 
have been gang lately, one is 
lucky if he even gets to eat! 

Letter to the Editor 

March 11, 1976 
Dear Mr. Edittr: 

Over the years Milligan College 
has gained the reputation for 
being school of song and music, 
thanks to the efforts of our 
capable music department 
professors However, if the chain 
of events continue in the future as 
they have started this year. 
MiUigan will be known also for its 
theatre, thanks to the able and 
untiringleadershipof ourone ina 
million. Dr. Ira Read, Under his 
tutelagestudents are gaining that 
opportunity to gel "outside" 
themselves and try their wings in 
acbng in a way the likes of which 
I have not seen at MiUigan 
College for many years. Dr, Read 
deserves a medal for his in- 
spiration and ingenuity which 
stress acting, entertainment, and 
food for thought. 

Hats off to our drama coach

"Dyslexia" Primer 

DEFINITION - A cognitive 
dysfunction, frequently 
hereditary in nature, charac- 
terized by failure to develop 
specific perceputal motor skills 
to expected proficiency despite 
conventional instruction, 
adequate intelligence, and socio- 
cultural opportunity (World 
Federation of Neurology, 1968) 

Developmental dyslexia - always 
hereditary, becomes a^^iarenl in 
1st grade when child is unable to 
decode words; 10 percent of 
Amencan population 

Hyperkinesis - overactive, can 
decode but poor comprehension; 
5 percent of Americans 

Dysgraphia - inability Epecific 
to handwriting. 3 percent of 

Parkinsonism • related to 
Parkinson's disease; 0.09 percent 
of Amencans 

Dyscalcula - inability specific 
to counting and mathebcs, less 
than 01 percent of Americans 
(HEW stalisdtics. 1970-71J 

SIGNIFICANCE - America is a 
literate socciety The ability of 
the individual to self -del ermine 
his social plight is related to this 
command of the English and 
mathetical language systems 
Lack of command may doom a 
person to a life of welfare or 
crime. A study of inmates at La 
Grange and EddyviUe peniten- 
tiaries in Ky. (1955-1955) in- 
dicated 70 percent to be dyslexic; 
43 percent developmental, 27 
percent hyperkinetic. The cost of 
educating them would have been 
cheaper than the cost of im- 
pounding Ihem.

\^) Ermine Campbell 

Gwen McCarty, from Bristol, 
Tennessee, is the daughter of Mr 
and Mrs. WiUiam E. McCarty, 
and is the youngest of three 
childrea Gwen has attended 
Milligan College all four years 
and plans to graduate in May, 

Gwen is our newest additiwi to 
PEDE Although she has had no 
previous experience working on 
newspapers. Gwen stated that so 
far she has had no problems 
preparing her articles This she 

attributes to the fact that she is 
such an ardent baseball fan. 

Atnong Gwen's favorite ac- 
tivities are watching baseball 
games (Milligan and Cincinnati 
Reds), sewing, swimming, 
ceramics, and birthday parties. 
She also likes cruising in her car, 
a green 1954 Chevy named 
"Uggie Buggy " She writes 
poetry and some of her works 
were published in HELICON last 
year Owen also enjoys traveling. 
After her freshman year she went 
on the humanities tour to Europe 
which she said "was just 
great." she added, "I would 
definitely encourage other 

students to lake the lour — it is a 
wonderful experience," Her 
plans are to travel this summer 
to Florida. Texas, and Indiana 
and then to secure a teaching job 
for the fall. 

Gwen is a former member of 
Civinettes and she was also 
Resident Assistant /or Sutton 
Hall last' school yearlHer major 
is Humanities and her minor is 
English, In reply to her im- 
pression of Ihe STAMPEDE, 
Gwen remarked. "I think Boyd is 
doing a good job. No one realizes 
how many long hours he has 
struggled with the paper and few 
appreciate him." 

In the past, one of the STAM- 
PEDE'S weaknesses has been its 
lack of spcrls coverage Gwen's 
willingness to get involved has 
greatly improved the quality of 
our entire newspaper 

It has been the experience of 
many persons to remain for 
several years in the home town of 
his birth, but for Mike Shannon, 
the feature writer of "The Funny 
Side of Faith." published in each 
issue of the STAMPEDE, this has 
not been the case. Mike has, since 
liis birlh, lived in Kentucky. 
Tennessee, Ohio and Florida, The 
first of two children, Mike is the 
son of Mr, and Mrs. Robert 
Shannon who are now residing in 
Largo. Florida, 

Mike is a May graduate, and is 
currentlv ministerme to the 

Central Christian Church in 
Jonesboro He plans to continue 
working with the church after 
graduating from Milligan and 
also plans to attend Emanuel 
School of Religiwi, 

Mike has been doing the 
feature, "The Funny Side of 
Faith," for the STAMPEDE 
since last school year When he 
began writing his earlier articles, 
Mike stated that these were 
mainly puns on Bible names and 
characters, but recently these 
articles have taken the trend of 
satire on religious life in 
America, Most of his ideas, Mike 
said, now come from what's 
really there, with an exaggerated 
touch added. 

Before coming to Milligan, 
Mike has had previous ex- 
perience working with his high 
school newspaper. He then wrote 
articles for the humor column. 
which were based on daily 
happenings in the school instead 
of religion, on which he now 

When asked about his hobbies, 
Mike asserted that he enjoys 
anything that has to do with 
drama whether it be watching or 
acting; and in addition he likes 
reading science fictions and 
mystery stories. Over the years 
Mike has been involved in several 
stage performances both here at 
Milligan and else where. He has 
acted the leading or miner role in 

plays like: "As Vou Like It," 
"Doctor In Spite of Himself." 
"Death and Life of Sneaky Fil- 
ch," "Boy Friend," "The Odd 
Couple." "God Spell." and 
Snoopy in "You're Good Man

siders to have been his greatest

Sports Profiles 

Miss Pat Bonner Beats All! 

Ms. Bonner has come to 
represent many things to many 
people. As coach she instills in 
her players respect and 
dedication for their sport. As 
teacher she expects her students 
to work to their full capacity. 
As advisor in the field of physical 
education she is a perfect model 
of her profession. 

The coaching, which is done on 
the side, takes up most of her 
time. She coaches all women 

varisty sports. 

Ms. Bonner is also involved in 
women's athletics in the state 
She IS the chairman of eligibility 
(or women's athletics in Ten- 
nessee. This means she has the 

final say as to whether a player 
or team is eligible lo play 

She is an active member of the 
First Christian Church in 
Johnsai City and sings in the 
chdr She is also a member of the 
Delta KappB Gamma which is a 
women's honary for teachers 

Before returning this year she 
requested several changes be 
made in the athletic program 
She warned to concentrate more 
on teaching and be relieved of 
some of the coaching respon- 
sibilities When she returned, she 
found the admin is tratiwi had 
been unable to fullfill these 
requests Even with the many 


responsibilities she has a positive 
attitude toward the women's 
athletic department and has not 
let it suffer. 

She is very confident in the 
women's program here at 
Milligan She feels that with more 
suppcrt from the student body, 
these athletes would gain further 
confidence In their ability Her 
players have a unique admiration 
and respect for their coach When 
asked to comment on Ms Bon- 
ner's coaching methods one of 
her playo-s stated. "Who else 
could get us up for an 8:30 
practice on Saturday morning''" 

After bringing the VSAC trophy 
back to Milligan, the Buffaloes 
are once again back lo prac- 
ticing. Spring practice started 
[wo weeks ago and will continue 
throughout the semester, 

VSAC win, what does it consist 
of^ It consists of hard work, 
practice, conditioning, pain and a 
lot of sweat A working com- 
bination of strategy and the right 
men counteracts the invading 
force of the opposition The first 
opposition to be dealt with was 
Trevecca. The game was close 
during most of the first half but 
the Buffs ran away with it during 
the last B minutes and never 
trailed' again Jim Schneider 
dazzled everyone with his 
beautiful playing which resulted 
in 30 points Reggie Holland was 
the main man in rebounding. 
Everyone working together led to 
a 105-88 victory. The remaining 

games against Lambuth, Ten- 
nessee Wesleyan. and Bethel 
were all played extremely well 
and led to the Buffs' first 
championship in the 29 years of 
VSAC history 

The Buffaloes' victory was not 
to end merely with the VSAC 
title, trophy. and nets, Coach Phil 
Worrell was chosen as the All- 
Tournament Coach and Ken 
Leatherwood. Jim Schneider and 
Marly Street (all excepbonal 
players) were chosen for the All- 
Tournament team. 

Many other men should be 
mentioned that didn't always get 
to play but came through with the 
back-up when it was needed. 
Mike Strouth, William Lewis. 
CC. aayton, Roy Wright. Ronnie 
Holland, Tom Windram, Jon 
Arvin. and Richard Solomon 
provided a solid back-up when 
needed and also provided moral 
support for those out on the floor.

(CPSt — "I've gol a goud job, 
I'm successful and I want to kill 
myself," a disturbed young 
person lells Dr Leonard 
Bachelis. director of New York's 
Behavior Therapy Center, "Life 
doesn't mean anything," 

Thai person is not alone, 
Mental health problems, par- 
ticularly depression, 
disillusionment, frustration, 
alientation and anxiety are 
haunting young, college educated 
pecple under 30 these days in 
numbers greater than ever 
before, mental health experts all 
across the nation report 

Men, women, blacks and 
whites are all being stung by 
these afflictions, experts say. The 
reasons, all agree, are complex 
and many, but disillusionment 
with politics, problems with the 
job market, confusion over 
changing sex roles and general 
dissatisfaction with "The 
American Dream" are men- 
tioned by psychiatrists and 
counselors most often. 

Experts are quick to point out 
that many young people are 
living normal, healthy lives with 
no signs of emotional distur- 
bances. But the number of people 
under 30 seeking professional 
mental health care has increased 
so much in recent years that 
. specialists say the trend is 
significant and that it worries 

Dr. Roberl Brown, a 
psychialrisl in Virginia, found in 
a Study that about one third of the 
young people he examined were 
"very depressed much of the 
lime." A Pennsylvania 
psychiatrist estimates that 50 to 
75 percent of today's mental 
hospital patients are adolescents 
and young adults. In Seattle, 
psychologist Karol Marshall says 
many of the young pecple she 
sees have a sense of "despair." 

Why so much depression 
among the young"* 'They are 
threatened by the future," Dr 

American Youth on Big Bummer 

hdward ^>tamjrf«)i'. lold 'I'hf New 
York Times, "They see the 
possibility of not having jobs, not 
having a lot of things their 
parents took for granted They 
see the possibility of not having 
an adequate role in society," Dr 
Slanbrook added 

"TTiey can't get the job they 
want," psychologist Marshall 
explains "They have a sense of 
helplessness, direct ioniessness 
and purposolessness, and this 
deteriorates into depression " 

A sur\ey of mental health 
experts in H cities by The Times 
found thai emotional problems 

were mo,sl JLiUt- amonji yuuu^ 
people who had rebeled or 
"dropped out" of society during 
the 60s. These people are 
turning up on psychiatrists' 
couches most frequently, and 
they are taking to alcoholism, 
drugs, suicide and religious and 
astrological cults more than their 
peers who opted for more of a 
straight life in recent years, 
experts say According to 
psychiatrists, these rebels are 
messed up because they failed to 
fulfill many of their expectations 
nf the past decade 
An example of ihis group is ex-

Clark Reviews R.A.'s Responsibilities 

"I have found it is a very 
complex job to select RA's 
(resident assistants*. ' said Dr, 
Paul Clark, our Dean of Students 
here at Milligan. After careful 
consideration, Dr Clark has 
recently selected the student 
resident assistants to serve in the 
various dorms for the 1976-1977 
school year. 

Dr Clark explained that one of 
the chief responsibilities of the 
R.A.'s is to make sure that the 
lines of communication between 
students, head residents, and 
himself remain open The R.A s 
are also to work closely with the 
head residents and Dr Clark in 
promoting dormitory im- 
provements and relationships 
Another important aspect of the 
RA's job is leadership Dr Clark 
feels 'hat R.A 's should exhibit 
leadership in the dorms. 

In discussing how the R A 's 
are selected, Dr Clark pointed 
out ihial first a person must apply 
in order lo be considered Once 
that minor prerequisite is met, 
Dr Clark said he then consults 
with head residents and other 
persons in order to obtain 
recommendations on the ap- 
plicants. In choosing the R A.'s 
for this coming year Dr Clark 

wanted to get a good mixture of 
juniors and seniors, and students 
who had the time to devote to the 
job Dr. Clark half jokingly said, 
"I remember one student we 
lurned down because he went to 
bed earlv ' When asked if 
academics were considred when 
making the selections, Dr Clark 
said Ihey were not, but perhaps 
they should have been 

The students who will serve as 
R.A 's in the coming year are: 

Hart Hall — UeDbie Murphy, 
Mary King. Claudia Thompson. 
Robin Thomas. Cmdy Brady. 
Beck Reeves, and Kitty Becker. 

Sutton Hall — Debbie Piper, 
Connie Paschal), Becky 
Roplagle, Cheryl Linscott, 

Hardin Hall — Rick Morrell. Tom 
Jones; Pardee Hall — Charlie 
AUcotl. Rick Kelly. Cort 
Davisson, Mark Reidel, Dick 
Barnetl. Webb Hall - Steve 
Carpenter, Ray Blakely. Greg 
Byington. Bob Kazec, Kevin 
Huddleston, and Douglas 

In summing it all up Dr Clark 
said he thought students at 
Milligan should study, and be 
religious, and be happ\'. and the 
R A "s should help them towards 
Ihese goals. 


The golden hour for seniors is 
almost here; May 15 and 16 they 
will be honored by faculty and 

Saturday's schedule calls for a 
2:30 rehearsal and a dinner at

Noted Harvard professor 
David Kiesman agrees, '"Hiis

On campus itself, college 
counselors are finding 
disillusionment welling up in 
many students who have not 
rebeled or "dropped out. " 
Ironically, the fact that these 
students have stayed within the 
system makes them fee! that the 
system is betraying them when 
they look towards graduation and 
see a bleak, empty job market 

This year, over 250 students 
will take their own lives and 
another750 will try to . Suicide is 
currently the biggest campus 
killer next lo accidental death. 
The National Center for Health 
Statistics reports that the suicide

Again, the reasons, accwding 
to cam pus shrinks, are shoi-down 
dreams. "College is a ruthless

social worker, "When a student 
realizes that his dreams may not

Peter Pan Flies Again 

By: Pamela Joy Coon 

Peter Pan never grew up. 

Remember when the troll 
growled. "Who goes under my 
bridge?" And you heard a gentle 
clip, clop, clip, clop "It IS I. Billy 
Goat Gruff!" Remember"* 

And we heard the same stories 
over and over again, and wanted 
them once more and again 
tomorrow night. 

Were they sweet, silly, sym- 
bolic? Was Alice in Wonderland 
somebody's LSD trip** 

Or do these stories awaken 
something lost in our un- 
consciousness? Is there some 
common ingredient in the world's 
[oik tales, in Jesus' parables, in 
those dreams we struggle to 

Whal is the point of all this'' 1 
haven't quite decided, so I'll 
pause with something else. 

I work in a Chinese restaurant 
(an excellent one, by the way — 
Diamond House) Everything 
about it is authentic Chinese: the 
music, mood, wall hangings, 
coloring , . even the owners are 

iinland China, and the 
only English the cooks can say is 
"You give too much rice" So 
squinl al the sugar packets. 
You'll see. in blazing red. white, 
and blue, the stars and stripes 
forever, proclaiming America's 
birthday Well, you know, that's 
one of those little things that 
makes our stay on earth a little 
more enjoyable. 

Back to fairy tales, now Hans 
Christian Andersen, the master 
of 'em. said. "Every man's life is 
a fairy tale written by God's 
fingers" Think about that. 

Listen to the masters. Go to 

Beethoven and Bach, Music is the 
purest of the arts, and Beethoven 
and Bach have created classics of 
music. Listen. There are no 
words, but their music reminds 
you of something , . , something 
like a dream you can 'I quite 
remember, or a smell you can 
almost identify Where does this 
feeling come from'' What does it 
call back'' 


Another interlude, if you don'l 
mind I'm in my last days of 
student teaching, and I'm con- 
vinced that high school students 
want to be entertained, they don't 
want to think or imagine, but 
they're such delightful people 
that 1 usually enjoy them 
tremendously, although I've 
decided I want to work on a farm 
next year instead of teach, 

Emerson said. "Imagination is 
not the talent of some men, but is 
the health of every man." Is 
imagination just pretend, or does 
it recall something already 

Jesus in His parables speaks 
both to our conscious and un- 
conscious levels with His 
imagery - a candle, treaure in a 
field, seeds, pearls thrown before 
pigs. Somehow we understand. 

Maybe there really was an 
Atlantis. Or maybe the Lord had 
already written on our "tabula 
rasa" In any case, it's in- 
teresting to think about . . like 
Peter Pan. one of those things 
thai makes our stay on earth a 
little more enjoyable

n bites the dust. 

II happened one alternoon as 1 
was relaxing in Sutton Cafeteria 
drinking my Pibb, I was feeling 
fulfilled and content when sud- 
denly someone' said. "Hey, did 
you know that 50 people here al 
Milligan this yeai- have gotten 
engaged''" Well, after the dust 
settled, the conversation began to 
include the members of each 
committed couple and then 
certain phrases that cleverly 
described what had actually 
happened to each male, 
Examples; "Old George bit the 
dust!" '"Old Bill is finally going to 
tie the knot!" "Old Rodney took a 
dive." and "Poor Celeste!" 

Well, this rush on the marriage 
market got me to thinking. Are 
we, as college students, begin- 
ning to get a little too anxious 
concerning that omnipotent in- 
stitution? I mean, we are well 
prepared for just about 
everything else in life. We need a 
degree to teach, a license to 
drive, and combat expenence to 
live in the dorms Shouldn't we 
also liave some Bort of 
prcparalifwi before we "bite the 
dust? " Well, naturally 1 think we 

do, so I took it upon myself to 
compile a compatibility test tor 
all of Milligan's "engagees,"

Although Gayle realizes she is

was not her motive in running, 
Gayle decided to run for 
president because after two 
years of experience on the 
council, she felt she had 
something to offer. After working

As president, Gayle has several 
goals in mind With the 
cooperation of the other mem- 
bers of SGA. she wishes to open 
the lines of communication 
between SGA and the student 
body At present, most Milligan 
students do not know what SGA 
does. Next year. Gayle hopes to 
change this. She does not wish to 
get more power for SGA, but to 
keep the good communication 
between them and the faculty. 

Continuing the many religious 
affairs started this year is 
another of Gayle's goals. The 
main goal is to get more support 
and participation from the 
student body. This is to be done 
by letting the students know that 
SGA is for them and not jusi for 
SGA ilseU 

Next year's legislative council 
is "great" according to Gayle 
Marty Williams will be Secretary 
of Religious Affairs; John Ray, 
Secretary of Academic Affairs; 
and Jaci Sweringen. Secretar>' of 
Social Affairs; Nancy Lav-^er is 
SecreUry of SGA. Kilty Becker 
is treasurer; and Tom Jones is 
Vice President 

With more support by the 
student body and continued open 
communications with the faculty, 
the SGA hopes to make next year 
better for all of the Milligan

Nostalgia: Sixties Surveyed 

by Dan Kirkland 

"i'ears from now, we will look 
back on the years here at 
Milligan College We could find 
many words which characterize 
I he mid-70's, but one which might 
siand out would be nostalgia For 
Lxample. we are bombarded 
every week with TV shows like 
"Happy Days," The most notable 
character is the Fonz, and now 
ihere is the Fonz poster, Fonz 
^hirt, Fonz Song, and Fonz 
phraseology i"Si[ on it ") On the 
radio, we are t>ombardcd with 
songs like "December '63" and 
Chicago's Harry Truman Song, 
So in an age like this, it only 
seems appropriate to bring back 
the times from somewhere more 
familiar, namely. Milligan 

The only real outlook we have 
on student life in years past is in 
the student newspaper STAM- 
PEDE. Our nostalgic tour of 
Milligan College beings in the 
late GO'S, since the STAMPEDE 
did not come into existence until 

The late 60"s was a time when, 
on the national front, we were 
involved in a race to the moon 
with the Soviet Union, we were up 
In our necks in SoutheasI .-Xsia, 

and the price of a stamp had gone 
up to an incredible 6 cents. Like 
every other college and 
university in the nation, Milligan 
College was affected by these 
situations. The STAMPEDE was 
born after students recognized 
the need for a student newspaper 
A cheering section appeared at 
basketball games as Milligan 
College began to show signs of a 
major basketball power And, 
fraternal organizations come into 
existence on the Milligan College 

Often associated with 
basketball is Charles "Toonie" 
Cash This man was very much 
responsible for building up the 
image of Milligan College as a 
growing basketball school- 
According to the STAMPEDE, he 
was ranked 18th in the NAIA in 
scoring at the beginning of one 
season. By the end of another 
season he was ranked 2nd in the 
NAIA, according to the same 
source In one game against 
Wofford, he scored an incredible 
49 points, just 2 points from the 
record for most points scored in 
one game by a single player The 
tate 60's started this tradition of 
b,^skplba!l. and at the same time. 

anulhfr tradition was started, A 
number of fans started the 
familiar cheering section, a 
valued tradition which is still 
with us. 

However, some things from the 
late 60's are with us no longer, or 
very little at all Fraternal 
organizations, such as Alpha Phi 
Omega and Sigma Delta Psi. 
were once very popular at 
Milligan College Alpha Phi 
Omega, or APO lor short, made 
it's debut here in 1%7. A current 
STAMPEDE says that when the 
fraternity was formally 
organized, "Mr, David Pat- 
terson. National Service 
Representative for aPO, was 
present for the initiation," The 
fraternity ded^cated'ilself to 
furthering the Milligan College 
community in ways such as 
organizing a system where 
students couHgive or find rides 
to destinations' during weekends 
and vacations It was partly 
responsible for bringing notable 
speakers on campus, like the US 
Congressman from the 9th 
Congressional District, Virginia, 
the Honorable William C. 
Wamper, The fraternity also 
revamped "the map at the en- 

Funny Side of Faith 

Shaping - up Spiritually by wke shannon 

We have all had the experienct 
at one time or another, of feeling 
spiritually inferior to someone 
Even though we all are ac- 
ceptable in God's sight, there are 
times when we feel un-Christian. 
If you are human you have felt 
the embarrassment of not being 
as religious as you thought you 
were. I have recorded here some 
occasions that perhaps read like 
something that has happened to 

Don't you feel like a heathen 

— Your date says "Don't you 
pray before meals?" 

— A famous preacher who 
"needs no introduction" speaks 
in chapel and you have never 
heard of him 

— '^'ou are called a Campbellite 
and you don't know what it is, 

— Someone tells a religious joke 
and you don't get it. 

— People laugh when you say 
that you liked Hal Lindsay's 

— You misquote a scripture 

— Someone makes fun of the 
version of the Bible that you use 

~ You flunk Bible Survey 


— You tell someone that you are 
a Bible major and Ihey don't 
believe you 

— Someone tells of a heretic who 
was burned for a belief that you 

— You have to fake singing the 

— You brag about your preacher 
to a friend who tells you that your 
preacher was fired from his 

— An evangelist speaks on the 
evils of rock music 

— You say that Oral Roberts is a 
mouth wash. Bishop Sheen is a 
car wax. and Billy Graham is a 
brand of cracker 

— You make fun of the P T L. 
club and someone says "What's 
wrong with if ' 

— You've gone to Milligan for 
four years and you don't know its 
related to the Christian Churches 
and Churches of ^rist. 

— You have lo ask help un- 
derstanding this article 

— You have to ask help writing 
Ihis arlicle 

trance to the college," said the 
STAMPEDE. Whatever became 
of that sign since then, the 
newspaper doesn't say. 

Fraternal organizations such 
as APO had the help of a number 
of faculty members in the form of 
advisory committees. But still, 
there was rivalry between these 
organizations. This rivalry 
showed Itself in events such as 
the memorable "Affair of the 
Chair." when two rival groups 
struggled for possession of the 
fraternity president's chair. The 
STAMPEDE reports that this 
event took place "before a 
capacity crowd at the Hart- 
Sutton arena" 

Milligan College hosted the 
Southern Folk Festival one year 
during this time Appearing were 
many of the same performers 
who took part in many concerts in 
Europe and the Newport Folk 
Festival at Carnegie Hall This 
event was certainly one of a few 
attractions which the college was 
pleased lo host 

Also, during the late 60's. the 
present intramural basketball 
program had its beginnings 
There were approximately 15 
teams, divided into 2 leagues, the 
"A" League and the "B" League 
Instead of being named for 
colors, they carried names like 
"Born L-osers". "Virginia Hogs", 
"Roaches". "Damn Yankees*, 
and "Soul Brothers" At the end 
of every season, the top team 
from each league played each • 

other in what always proved lo l>e 
a grueling contest 

While the late 60's was a time of 
change, the mid 70's appears lo 
be. in part, a time of nostalgia. 
Vhv do we feel nostalgic about the 
pa:it'' Perhaps we lack a sense of 
identity Or maybe we are loo 
close to the past to see where we 
arc headed- In any case, the late 
60's left us many traditions which 
are still with us — the STAM- 
PEDE, the Buffalo basketball 
team, and the cheering section. 
However, there are thin^ like 
the fraternal organization which 
are no longer a noticeable part of 
Milligan College Ever>'where we 
look, we see change all around us. 
For instance, there was a time 
when a person did not have to 
reserve the chapel to use it. 
There was a time when DJ Fred 
Storey could be heard m person 
rather than on the radio. The 
mid-70's is very murch a part of 
us: we may as well live it and 
make a name for tb*" titnr' we live

Anyone who missed the recent 
Community Theater production 
of Godspell deprived himself o t a 
moving musical masterpiece. 

C.C. Clayton effectively 
"prepared the way" for the 
remainder of what has to be one 
of Director Ira Read's most 
smashing successes. 

Contributing much to the 
magic of the play was the talent 
of the musical director. Jan 
Jones Each of the actors ap- 
propriately and professionally 
performed his number, A few of 
the numerous knockouts in- 
cluded: Jan Jones and "Day by 
Day", Pam Johnson and "Bless 
the Lord". Kim Scheffler and 
"All Good Gifts". Sherel 
Gallagher and "Turn Back. O 
Man", and Hank Dahlman "On 
the Willows '. The company 
compelled the audience to ap- 
plaud the exciting entertainment 
of "Light of the World". "We 
Beseech Thee", and "Day by 

Paula Elam's clever 
choreography crowned the show. 
All of the company's maneuvers 
were especially enjoyable, Dick 
Major and Larry McNelt strode 
smoothly through a difficult duet. 
"All for the Best" "All Good 

Gifts" was graced with the 
delicate dancing of a beautiful 
ballet and Sherel Gallagher's 
riotous rendition of "Turn Back" 
was also carefully 


Each cast member continually 
conveyed the mood of the play, 
which became drastically more 
dramatic during Act 2 Dick 
Major, portraying Christ, in- 
, jected incomparable insights into 
the difficult lead role Dick' 
tearfully touched the hearts of 
everyone during scenes such as 
"On the Willows", where he bade 
his cast goodbye Only a person 
with a unique degree of adap- 
tability could prompt an audience 
the way Dick did! 

Paul Blowers' facial funnies 
burst the audience into laughter. 
Other cute comic capters were 
pursued by Holly Sias, Jeff 
Cassens. Kim Scheffler. and Jan 

Barb Elliot's simple set was 
sufficient and Trisha Scot's 
costumes, especially those of the 
women, were stunning.

Letters To The Editor 

To the Editor: 

I have been exposed to strong 
student opinion and emotion both 
pro ■ and anti- administration 
both before and during my 
residence at MiMigan. Because of 
this conflict I have constantly 
sought to find the truth in every 
situation or conflict that has 

I have always been amazed, as 
I began to try to track down the 
truth, at what few facts can 
change the entire circumstance 
and therefore my evaluation of it. 

I am sorry for the students that 
never experience this for 
themselves and because of that 
will possibly leave Milligan with 
unhappy memories. I am sorry 
for the students that never see 
administrators as more than 
office holders and never come to 
know them for the concerned 
persons they are. 

I am glad that 1 have been in 
positions where 1 felt obligated to 
find out the truth of campus 
situations, for each time 1 have 

been relieved to discover the true 
facts. Every person owes it to his- 
her intelligence to examme all 
sides of the story, objectively, 
before making any judgment 

Emotions seem to be con- 
centrated in a campus-living 
situation. One cannot be too 
careful, then, in handling any 
personal encounters. One basic 
emotion is that one which resents 
authority and enforcers of rules 
no matter if the rules are just or 
necessary. There can hardly be a 
popular enforcement of them, 
and the enforcer, by association, 
receives part of this resentment 

1 am not trying to defend or 
criticize any parties, just ask thai 
we do ourselves the credit of 
purdent, mature reactions and be 
willing to extend belief and trust 
to all persons, 

Robin Phillips.

Editorially Speaking, . 

Senior Staffers 

Plight of Publications 

During my editorship of the 
STAMPEDE. 1 have been 
pleased to work with an always 
illustrious but not as industrious 
group of seniors- 

My excellent editing ability 
was enhanced by the robust 
Robin Phillips. Although I hurled 
incessant obscenities at her and 
tried my best to smoke her out of 
the staff room, Robin always 
remained to pick at, and slash up 
my articles. 

Serving steadfastly as my 
critical editor was Jama (woman 
of the world) Humphrey. It is 
refreshing to know that someone 
attends plays, watches some TV 
and still finds time to read new 
books. Keep up the good work, 

I would like to thank my 
charming friend Pam Coon for 
her unique contributions which 
were written in the kitchen of the 
Heart House Restaurant, or 
wherever she works 

I owe a great deal to my paste- 
up man. Kenny Leasure. who 
"kept things straight" for me all 
semester. After all the com- 
mands I gave him, I feel very 
fortunate that he didn't paste my 
big mouth shut! You're a real 
friend, Kenny 

My dear friend David Waters 
always stood ready with his fleet 
fingers to write such biggies as 
"Fountain Flows", He also 
forced me to leave the staff room 
at four in the morning so I would 
get some sleep. 

The affability of Ermine 
Campbell graced the paper this 
year She possessed rare 
qualities which allowed her lo say 
nice things about even the most 
despicable people whom she 

Kathleen Powell always smiled 
as she handed me her story I'm 
not sure, but J think the reason 
why she smiled is because 1 
always act and look funny to her 

The most inappropriate thing 1 
could possibly do would be lo 
altempl to crack a funny about 
Mike Shannon, the witty 

wonder who wrote "Funny Side 
of Faith" this year, Besides, too 
many funny things have already 
been said about him 

I feel compelled to thank Gwen 
McCarty for her baseball 
coverage for fear of blackmail 
Although she always seemed to 
be domg everything but writing 
baseball stories. Gwen somehow 
managed to pull through, 

Mark Poorman, my political 
editor and 1 never seemed to be 
able to find each other because he 
was too involved in politics and I 
was too busy with, let me see 

Congratulations to the senior 
staffers 76 You'll all be 
reluctantly remembered next 

Much love, 
your' editor, Boyd- 

editor's note: 

Manv of the articles written in 
the STAMPEDE express per- 
sonal opinions The articles do 
not m any way represent the 
views of the college as a whole. 

No one on the staff ever intends 
to maliciously misrepresent an 
issue We regret the controversy 
caused over certain articles 
which appeared in the last issue 
of the STAMPEDE We \^^ll 
continue to attempt to meet the 
needs of students and faculty and 
administration as well 

The future of student 
publications here at Milligan 
rests in the hands of the student 
body If enough people desire to 
have a good yearbook, paper, and 
magazine, then the work will 
probably get done. But apathy is 
sometimes predominant 

This year, for example, a 
dedicated few have worked ex- 
cessively hard in order to bring 
the paper, yearbook, and 
magazine into being, I personally 
have tried to improve the quality 
and content of the newspaper and 
Anna Wiley and Chris Harkey 
have been dedicated to the 

Although we each had help with 
our projects, our staffs represent 
a very small group of individuals 
Surely there are many students 
who have had previous ex- 
perience in journalism who want 
to continue their interests, but 
where are they? 

One of the chief reasons for 
lack of support in the past has 
been limited facilities which we 
are blessed with But. according 
lo officials, our luck may be 
changing somewhat ! have 
approached several ad- 
ministrators alwut the possibility 
of having a larger publications 
area and dark room facilities 
With the refurbishment of the ad 
building this summer, we hope to 
acquire an area which will be 
much more conducive to better 
journalism. And, the possibility 

exists that a journalism course 
could possibly be offered next 
year sometime. 

1 am one person who has 
already expressed my interest 
and concern. And. as the old 
adage goes. "There's strength in 
numbers " I urge any of you who 
have a genuine and committed 
interest in the future of 
publications at Milligan to get 
involved now. 

It's time that endeavors such 
as the paper and yearbook. 
I which are supposed to represent 
the entire college) be given the 
full recognition and support 
which they deserve 


The editorship of a STAM- 
PEDE means: wrecked room, 
cut classes, grades gone, clut- 
tered car. heavy head, high 
hopes, nightless days, forgotten 
friends, new enemies, blank 
while spaces, running restricted, 
deadlines and dead ends, gutters 
and guffaws, failures and fun. 

Although I will no longer be 
"Mr Editor", 1 will continue lo 
support the STAMPEDE by 
working with the new editor.

Milligan College Plans To 
Doctor-Up Derthick Hall 

January 1st is the tentative 
(iateset for beginning work on the 
remodeling of the Administration 
Building According to Mr. 
Eugene Wigginton. Director of 
Development, while the building 
is structurally sound, efforts will 
be made to improve its ap- 
pearance both inside and out. 

The major project presently 
planned will be the construction 
of an extended addition to the 
north end of the building which 
faces Hopwood Christian Church. 
The addition will house an en- 
closed stairwell which would 
eliminate the need for the narrow 
and somewhat cumbersome 
stairways which are presently in 
use at that end of the building. 
The existing staircases in the 
center of the building will be 
enclosed and reworked around an 
elevator, included especially to 

aid handicapped students. 

Of interest to drama students 
will be the restoration and im- 
provement of the old auditorium. 
Present plans include an ex- 
tended and enlarged stage area. 
Most of the balcony will be 
removed, except for an area in 
the rear, which will be converted 
into a projection booth and 
control room This area will also 
afford some storage space for 
props and other theatrical 

Attempts will also he made to 
restore the four classrooms 
located in the basement of the 
building, previously used for 
science labs. Both men's and 
women's restrooms will be 
located on each of the upper-level 

Inside the classrooms them- 
selves it is hoped to lower the 

ceilings and provide now and 
modern lighting Additional 
electrical receptacles will be 
installed in each of the rooms to 
provide easier maneuverability 
of audio-visual equipment. Walls 
in need of repair will be fixed and 
repainted, All of the windows will 
be replaced in the interest of 
energy conservation, (No more 
sneaking into the Ad Building 
after hours couples! ) Carpeting 
will be laid both in the classrooms 
and in the halls. 

While the building is, at 
present, adequately protected in 
the event of a fire, both audible 
and visual fire alarms will be 

Maor and minor structural 
repairs will be done on the ex- 
terior of the building, including 
the rejoining of the separated 



Meet Roxy Guinn 

It's hard to get an interview 
with Foxy Roxy If you're lucky, 
as this reporter was. you might 
get a short answer to the only 
question she'd let you fit in And 
even that doesn't, revealmuch, 
"Ms. Roxy, what do you do in 
your spare time?" came the 
timid query- A curt ibut 
gleeful! ) reply. '■! can't teU 

Roxy is not exclusive about the 
company she keeps. If your are a 
human being, you qualify for her 
friendship — even if you're shy or 
backwards and don't make 
friends very easily She's just 
modest around reporters 

Her Work Is Her Hobby 

It seemed as if the only way to 
uncover any of the myths that 
surround Roxy, was for me to 
talk to her supervisor and a few 
of her co-workers When asked 
about Roxy's hobbies, one of her 
co-workers replied, quite calmly 
in fact, "Her work is her hobby , 
She's really crazy'" (In the 
delightful sense of the word!) 
"She does keep a garden, 
though " Being a suburban 
Northerner, where a garden is a 
box on your windowsill that you 
grow flowers in. I wasn't quite 
sure what to ask next "What 
does she grow m her garden"*" is 
what came out "Ohhh. ' was the 

Wednesday with Wetzel 

Is there a God'' I f there is. how 
can he be known? And how can 
one be sure that he actually 
knows for certain? Can God be 
defined in human terms? And if 
he can be so described, what is 
the nature of the language with 
which to speak of Him^ Does the 
answer lie in knowledge or in 
faith? If such questions intrigue 
and perplex you. you might be in- 
terested in hearing a philosopher 

talk about them One of 
Milligan's own Dr Wetzel on the 
subject "Ordinary Language 
Philosoph;, and Religious 
Language", addressing the 
Academic Affairs Committee of 
the Student Government

sons are welcome to attend. 

reply in an East Tennessee 
drawl. "What most people grown 
in their gardens" 

I was really embarassed by 
now, thinking of my potted 
flowers and all — and to betray 
my Yankeeness at this point 
would not be good politics. "What 
do most people grow in their 
gardens around here"*" I ven- 
tured It was met with a 
suspicious glare but I got an 
answer "Jest the usual things, 
you know — beans 'n' corn. 
termatoes "n' radishes, some 
'taters and things like that " 
Rehef. "Oh." I replied feeling 
more natural. "She lives on a 
farm " Closely-knit eyebrows on 
the co-worker I'd been 
discovered! "No. she jest keeps a 

Perhaps 1 would have more 
luck with one of the other 
workers, I thought Approaching 
one of them, I asked. "Does Roxy 
have a family"'" and I proceeded 
to hear all about her nine married 
children "Some's living here 
and some's livm' in Florida. ' 

The supervisor was very 
helpful, however Roxy had been 
working there about five years 
now while she engaged in good- 
natured mischief once in a while, 
it gave the other workers a happy 

column on the west end. Special 
parking space will also be made 
available and an inclined walk- 
way will be constructed for the 
benefit of handicapped persons. 

It is planned to have the work 
done in sections and some 
rescheduling of classrooms may 
be necessary to aid the workers 
and to insure the safety of 
students Mr Wigginton projects 
that the construction and 
remodeling will take about nine 
months to complete if all goes as 

The project is being mostly 
funded by a grant, in the amount 
of 5247,000. from the Appalachian 
Regional Commission The 
school plans to raise an ad- 
ditional sum of 5153,000 from 

outside sources to supplement the 
grant. Mr, Wigginton commented 
that by spending a total of 
S400,000 on improvements and 
remodeling now. a sum of 
S1.000.000+ can be saved in the 
construction of a new ad- 
ministration building which 
would undoubtedly be inferior, 
both in size and structure and in 
durability, to the existing one, 
Mr, Wigginton also stated that 
an advisory committeee. com- 
prised of faculty members, will 
be working both with the 
Development Office of the 
College and with Leeson and 
Beeson, architects Mrs. R, 
Bowers. Dr H. Webb, and Dr, I 
Read have been named to that 

opinion of her And a lot of people 
who don't even know her very 
well feel right at home talking 
with her Down right refreshing, 
in fact' If you get a chance, why 
not stop by the dishwashing room 
of the Milligan cafeteria and 
meet one of our dishwashers. . 
Roxy Guinn! 

Evidently, all the people she 
works with seem to have a high 

relief from the business of the 
day "In fact, it's encouraging for 
the other people here to see her 
laughing and carrying her 
burdens with the light air of 
optimism. She's just wonderful!"

Climb on Board a Club 

The 1976-77 Milligan term has 
finally started, but amid all the 
classes, books, and intramurals. 
some of the Milligamtes are still 
bored. If that is your case, how 
do you break the humanities 
humdrum and the psychology 
sleepiness? One joins a campus 
club, of course There are clubs 
fcr fields of study, for service, for 
recreation, for men, for women, 
and for a little of everything, not 
to mention a lot of everyone. 

If you really want to get in- 
volved in what you are studying, 
then you can join one of the 
various clubs that put an accent 
on fields of study. The Philosophy 
Club. Phi Beta Lambda 
I business ) , the Pre-Med Club, the 
foreign language clubs all expand 
on what was absorbed in the 
classroom For the educators to

Milligan can boast of some of 
the most active service clubs 
around. The Ministerial 
Association, made up mostly of 
Bible majors, does a lot around 
campus to keep things like 
Collegiate Church going. The 
Missions Club visits area 
missions and homes to spread 
iheir love around, A pair of 
overlooked groups. Alpha Phi 
Omega and the Chapel Crew, 
seem to be too active to be 
noticed, but they are surely 

The girls have a few clubs to 
themselves. The Civinettes are 
famous for their services and 
projects around the campus. And 
if you are a girl seeking service, 
then you can always join the 
Service Seekers, a club known for 
its love of anything but 
selfishness Phi Eta Tau and the 
Women's Recreation Association 
are organizations tor the sports 

minded women around Milligan. 
For the outdoorsy types, the 
Ramblers have a habit of back- 
packing and hiking in the 
mountains, in rain, snow, sleet, 
or the gloom of night. The Bike 
Club. well, bikes. They bike a 
lot, and have a blast doing it, 

The Foreign Students not only 
share with the native Americans, 
but also with each other in 
several recreational activities. 
Last year, the ETSU and Milligan 
foreign students got together 
several times to share, talk, and 
jusi have a good time. 

There is a quick rundown oi the 
clubs at Milligan. (There are so 
many that we may have missed a 
few, and for this we apologize.) 
So if you're feeling a bit bored or 
lonely, try a club, or two. or 
three Clubs may not be able to 
solve all your problems, but they 
sure can make them a lot more 
i nteresting.

Frampton Shows the Way^^ 



"virtuoso" can 
practically in- 
stantaneously, regardless of 
one's talent The 1970's has seen 
the attempts by various record 
companies to sell to Americans 
various "artists" who have been 
previously unheard of, avowedly 
unjustly overlooked, or 
justifiably uncared for. It might 
have been possible, and even 
expected, that this would have 
befallen Peter Frampton But, it 
didn't. And now, through the 
process of four relatively un- 
noticed albums, which have 
brought about a rewarding 
maturation, at last there is a 
musician who just might deserve 
the title of "superstar". 

Peter Frampton's latest 
ALIVE has now been the number 
one selling album in the country 
three different times since it was 
released back in January of this 
year. And, it is presently in that 

position The album is actually a 
semi-collection of Frampton's 
best songs from his previous 
albums. All of it is recorded live 
And unlike similar live recor- 
dings, Frampton's is not ham- 
pered by the setting That the 
audience reacts and participates 
IS an important and necessary 
factor in the effect and success of 
the album 

The songs themselves are 
written entirely by Frampton and 
his band, with one exception And 
they are good. The exception 
"Jumping JacK Flash" by Mick 
Jagger and Keith Richard, is 
bad. It is biad because it is not a 
Frampton song And, it is bad 
because the way it is performed it 
appears to have been modified in 
an attempt to be a Frampton ■■ 
song, and it didn't quite make it 
But, other than some buuieAhol 
less than profound lyrics in 
places, that is the only real weak 

Peter Purvis 

ALIVE. Frampton is innovative, 
and he has a band that is capable 
of following and exalting him. 
Together they range from soft to 
semi-hard rock, never offending 
anyone along the way and cer- 
tainly never boring Peter 
Frampton has had two hit singles 
off of this album so far, and he 
should have several more. 

The record buying popuiatjon 
of America should not only be 
happy at the success of 
but also proud No or.e this time 
has said, "Go out and buy Peter 
Frampton's new album and 
make it number one," We have 
done it on our own and we have 
done it because at long last 
someone has come out of 
anonymity with something more 
than a talehi for impressing 
publicity men, Peter Frampton 
has a style and a talent for music 
which is exciting and for real

Over the summer several 
improvements were made in 
many of the buildings and around 
the grounds of the Milligan 
campus. According to Dr Clark. 
Dean of Students, several other 
improvements are also projec- 
ted. ■ 

Dr- Clark reported that 
painting had been done in all the 
dorms, and added that more 
painting would be necessary and 
is being planned Robert 
Forester, a decorator from Nash- 
ville, Tennessee, will be engaged 
to rennovate all the lounges in the 
men's dorms. 

While all of the dorms are 
adequately furnished with fire 
protection at present, according 
to standards set by law. Dr Clark 

stated that more protection will 
be provided. Security alarms, on 
a trial basis, have been installed 
on the rear doors of Hart Hall, 
with the possibility of more 
alarms being added. 

Dr. Clark commented that it' Is-*' 
hoped that the additional parking 
space provided by the Steve Lacy 
Fieldhouse would help to 
eliminate some of the parking 
problems. It is still planned, 
however, to raze the Cheek 
Gymnasium and to convert the 
area into another parking lot. 

The two small houses which 
were previously used to house the 

nurse's clinic and the piano 

practice rooms have been 
repainted. Dr. J.T. Smedley and 
Mrs. Lewis, the campus nurse. 

have moved their offices into the 
old practice house. Additional 
parking space has been provided 
for the benefit of Dr Smedley's 
off campus patients The former 
nurse's station will be used as a 
learning center where advanced 
special education students will 
work with local school children 

It is hoped that the im- 
provements made thus far will be 
noticed by Milligan students and 
faculty and that future im- 
provements can be made when 
necessary to help beautify the 
Milligan campus

Freshman week brings tiack 
fond memones. I can remember 
back to 1974. I was sitting in my 
bedroom — sweat rolling from 
my brow — trying to decide on 
what courses to take during my 
Freshman year at MiUigan The 
book I so tediously studied was 
the 1974 Milligan College 
Bulletin 1 think I just about 
memorized all my courses and 
their descriptions. 

And now I'm a junior — and 
I've finished all those required 
courses. But I still remember 
those course descriptions from 
1974 and I think, somewhat, a 
truer description of the courses 
should be written For instance: 

study of fundamental biology 
concepts of particular relevance 
to mankind and his place in the 
living world. Included are 
discussions of the present and 
future status of the survival of 
man in a world of increasing 
biological problems 

study of the fundamentals of note 
taking and speed reading with 
particular relevance to Dr 
Wallace and his birds. Included 
are discussions of the present and 
future status of multiple choice 
tests and Dr Gee's Adam's

Keep The President You Have 

by Paul Blowers 

If the Mhh.ijan fight song 
doesn't slarl raising some goose 
bumps for the President, the 
peanut gallery may have its way 
at last. 

With no Vietnams or 
Watergates for public opinion to 
really sink its teeth into, our 
political atmosphere has fallen 
into a sort of lull As a result, 
Campaign 76 is being reduced to 
a battle of personalities more 
than issues Whether the 
majority of American voters 
succumb to Ford's "nice, quiet 
guy" image or Carter's southern 
version of Kennedy-like 
charisma remains to be deter- 
mined, but al this point that 
almighty grin seems to be suc- 
cessfully mesmerizing the public. 

President Ford heads the 
Republican ticket with the full 
backing ol party moderates and 
squeamish, but apparently loyal 

support from dissapointed 
Keaganiles Ford, though not a 
dynamo, has demonstrated 
better-than-average executive 
ability. He has slowly bolstered 
economic recovery, maintained 
the wise Nixonian ideas of 
detente while managing fairly 
well to check the intrigues of 
Indochina communists, and 
relaxed the bitter remnants of 
Watergate hostilities. Ford must, 
however, face a variety of 
barriers; still heavy unem- 
ployment which has aggravated 
labor, discontent with the han- 
dling of Soviet affairs from the 
rebuilding conservative con- 
stituency, and that inevitable 
loss of faith in the executive 
branch which has been so dif- 
ficult to shake loose 

Senator Robert Dole. R- 
Kansas. though not a prime 
geographic choice by Ford for 
vice-president, adds a much- 


neeaed spark to thet^ i) H. ticket 
Dole has earned admiration from 
fellow congressmen as an honest, 
fair, common sense man with 
particular distinction as an 
outstanding debater and cam- 
paigner Dole will surely attract 
votes in the farm belt, while his 
hardline civil rights stand should 
help in the urban centers. Per- 
sonality wise. Dole possesses the 
sharp tongue and charisma Ford 
lacks. Yet. two midwestern 
moderates could be likely be too 
much for Eastern, Souther, or 
Far Western independents to 

The Democrats are going with 
the personable and affectionate 
Jimmy Carter Right off he has 
the overwhelming asset of being 
a new face on the national scene. 
His charm and compassionate air 
entice voters and could have a 
soothing effect on a wounded 
federal government His 

Efforts are being made to form 
an instrumental ensemble 
consisting soley of Milligan 
students, according to Mr John 
Wakefield of the Music Depart- 
ment. It will be the goal of the 
group to produce quality music in 
keeping with the reputation all 
ready established by the school's 
choral groups. The ensemble 
hopes to achieve this goal by 
offering for performance a 
variety of musical styles, in- 
cluding works from popular 
shows, the classics, and the 
traditional marches, in a wide 

Some of the group's activities 
will include a major role in a 
musical to be performed during 
Founder's Day Week-end and 
appearances at the home 
basketball games, 

Mr. Wakefield cited four 
reasons why it is felt that 
Milligan needs to offer a more 
extensive instrumental music 
program. First, music education 
majors presently come out of the 
college with virtually no 
background in instrumental 
music Such a program would 
contribute to a graudate's 
flexibility in looking for job 
situations. Secondly, the student 
body as a whole needs to be given 
the opportunity to continue any 
interest that it might have in the 
instrumental music area 
Thirdly, the Music Department 
could correlate twth the vocal 
and the instrumental segments 
with a view towards a wider 
range of possibilities in concert 
productions. In the past it was 
often the case that a choral 
group's only accompaniment was 
a keyboard instrument. And 

louriniy. tJie college suffers from 
a loss of students who consider 
instrumental music to be an 
integral part of their college 
curriculum and life 

There has been an increasing 
interest expressed both by 
students and faculty to engage 
another faculty member to work 
specifically in the area of in- 
strumental music. Some efforts 
have already been made in this 

At present, however, the en- 
semble will be conducted by Mr 
Wakefield. In addition to his 
ability to direct choral music 
ensembles. Mr Wakefield also 
has a broad background in in- 
strumental music. Playing many 
of the brass instruments himself. 
he has particijjated in several 
concert bands and brass en- 
sembles Mr Wakefield has also 
had extensive training in the 
conducting of instrumental en- 
sembles under John Payter of 
Northwestern University and 
Otto van Werner-Mueller of Yale, 

Persons interested in playing in 
the ensemble should contact Mr 
Wakefield or Mrs, Treadway in 
the music office Participation 
will include one hour of credit per 
semester in Band 106-107 The 
course may also be audited with 
no credit applied Credit hours 
are also offered for participation 
in the Johnson City Symphony 

At present, Mr Wakefield 
indicated that 25 students are 
actively involved in the in- 
strumental ensemble, but that 
more students are desired and 
would be welcome to participate 

unification of Eastern and 
Southern Democrats enhances 
the ticket even more Yet Carter, 
a rookie, is undoubtedly vague in 
his proposals, promising to solve 
diametrically opposed domestic 
problems with one quick sweep 
It is difficult to foresee any great 
upswing of economic recovery if 
a President Carter would 
willingly yield to a spend-thrift 

One questions whether Senator 
Walter Mondale, D-Minnesota, is 
not more a geographic than 
rational choice by Carter, 
Mondale has an honest slate and 
excellent labor record going for 
him, but little else. He comes 
across as self-righteous, 
arrogant, and cynical at times, 
and his continuous references to 
Watergate could do more harm 
than good since the public has 
been exhausted by it and wants to 
hear no more. On the other hand. 

Mondale is closely identified with 
Hubert Humphrey; that should 
influence partly loyalists Hell 
fare well in the East and in blue 
collar areas 

If indeed the Ford-Dole ticket 
trails the Carter-Mondale team, 
political forecasters are 
predicting that the Republicans 
can still pull the trump in the 
upcoming television debates. The 
well-informed incumbent and his 
quick-minded running male 
might have the advantage, but 
Jerry will have to watch it — too 
much make-up above his left 
eyebrow could cost him the 
election Yet in a year when both 
presidential candidates have 
been drawn from close to the 
middle the Democrats bold an 
advantage. At any rale, it is a 
new ball game from 1972 Hasty 
presumptions cannot be made by 
anyone. VOTE!!!

Hank Larsen is not his real

typical of the thousands of young 
Americans imprisoned overseas 
on drug charges Many are 
serving lengthy sentences for 
what would be misdeameanors or 
less under U.S. law Some have 
been victims of torture, ex- 
tortion, systematic harassment 
or other forms of abuse 
Whatever their guilt or in- 
nocence, it's a bad trip and 
there's only so much Uncle Sam 
can do to help them 

The State Department sees the 
problem as worldwide — and 
growing According to official 
consular records, some 2,500 U.S. 
citizens were serving sentences 
in foreign jails at the end of 1975, 
about three-quarters of them for 
narcotics offenses This is more 
than double the number in 1973.

Hello Freshmen! 

After successfully completing 
four years of high school you've 
landed into Milligan Most of you 
first became acquainted with the 
school through friends and a good 
deal of you were landed by 
Milligan's highly efficient p.r. — 
men in church camps. I know I 

So, after a summer of swim- 
ming, dating, softball. dating, 
cruising, dating, and other 
diversions don't plan to dally 
around at Milligan You are in a 
college now that will require you 
to learn. 

This is not to say you won't be I 
able to have fun But it is to say I 
you won't be able to have the I 
same fun you had in those high I 
schools where you never had to 
open a textbook 

Hopefully, after laying down 
$80 for texts and another $1500 for

out ol prison. But these are just 
two more misconceptions in a 
whole string of misconceptions 
and misjudgments that probably 
landed them in their predicament 
in the first place 

The lure of "easy money" is a 
major snare and delusion For 
contrary to what many young 
Americans believe. most 
countries have much stiffer drug 
laws than the United States 

"There's nothing easy aboul 
this business It's rough and the 
risks are enormous You're being 
had the minute you decide to get 
involved." says Loren Lawrence, 
deputy administrator of the State 
Department's Bureau of Security 
and Consular Affairs, which is 
charged with assisting and 
protecting Americans overseas. 

Even "doing your own thing," 
if that includes carrying around a 
few joints for personal use. can 
turn into an awfully un- 
comfortable and costly cross- 
cultural experience. 

"It was such a little amount 
We never dreamed it would get so 
heavy." says Deborah Fredman, 
whose half-ounce of marijuana 
cost her $7,000 and 37 days in a 
Mexican jail "And it could have 
cost a whole lot more There are 
people still down there who didn't 

have any more grass than we 
did," Friedman told a San 
Francisco newspaper earlier this 
year "And some were arrested 
and didn't have any. who have 
been in jail for years," 

While a lucky few of those 
arrested manage to be acquitted 
after only a few months m jail, 
ihc average sentence around the 
world for "possession and 
trafficking" of marijuana is 
seven years and some months 
For hard drugs like heroin and 
cocaine, jail terms skyrocket. 
with 30-year sentences not being 
unheard of Three countires — 
Iran, Algeria and Turkey — allow 
the death penalty in narcotics 
cases - 

"We just didn't take it all that 
seriously at first," Margaret 
Engle said in a newspaper in- 
terview after being released from 
a Turkish prison in 1973 "We 
were so used to the American 
system of justice we thought it 
would only take a few hours to 
clear up." 

It took almost a year to clear 
up, however Eight anxious 
months with a life sentence 
hanging over her head. Eight 
months spent in a tiny concrete 
cell. 15 X 20 feet, which she shared 
with two dozen other female 


convicts An open sewer ran 
along one wall The prison was 
300 years old, infested with large 
rats, lice and bedbugs 

"The thing people seem to 
forget is that the American 
system of justice stops al our 
borders," says consular officer 
ftoy Davs, whospends most of his 
time at the Slate Department 
working on prisoner problems 
"Laws are different, judicial 
systems are different, judicial 
guarantees are different, prison 
systems are different." 

Filed in his in-box are cables 
from Manila. Nassau, Bangkok. 
Sydney, Calgary, Casablanca. 
Bogota and Guadalajara 
detailing new arrests About 20-25 
new cases come in every day. 
Davis says 

The new arrestees shouldn't 
count necessarily on bail, the 
right to remain silent, trial by 
jury, the right of appeal or other 
rights provided by the American 
legal system Americans abroad 
are subject to the same legal 
procedures and penalties as the 
citizens in whatever country they 
find themselves In four of tiie ten 
countries where the large 
majority of Americans are 
confined, this means they are

Students who are interested in 
working on the Student Union 
Board should see either Miss 
Sweringen or Joe Hatter Anyone 
with interesting ideas for fulure 
activities should also make their 
suggestions known to the boart 

Napoleonic Code rather than 
English common law. Pre-trial 
detention of up to one year is 
common and in some places the 
prisoner need not even be present 
at his trial. 

Harsh conditions and 
mistreatment of prisoners are 
common in many parts of the 
world, a fact the State Depart- 
ment views with growing concern 
as the number of Americans 
behind bars overseas continues to 
climb In Mexico, where nearly 
600 Americans are incarcerated 
(more than in any other foreign 
country;, a significant number of 
charges about harsh conditions 
and abuse have been sub- 
stantiated There have been 
instances, for example, of such 
illegal but accepted practices as 
beatings, confiscation of property 
and denial of prompt access to 
the American consul. 

What can the US Government 
do^ Overseas the fact of national 
sovereignty poses special 
problems and constraints. Apart 
from protesting to the ap- 
propriate authorities any illegal 
and inhumane treatment of 
American prisoners, the legal 
role of US. consular officers is 
limited They can't use govern- 
ment funds to pay bail, legal fees 
or other expenses, as some 
prisoners seem to expect. 

They can make every effort to 
see that the prisoner's rights 
under local law are fully ob- 
served and that treatment meets 
internationally accepted stan- 
dards They can visit the prisoner 
as soon as possible after the 
arrest is known and provide him 
with a list of reputable local 
attorneys from which he may 
select his defense counsel They 
also can contact family and 
friends, but only if the prisoner 
requests it 

Many young and enterprising 
consular officers, despite 
staggering workloads, go beyond 
these legal responsibilities In 
Mexico, Peter Wood and Donna 
Hrinac, who together were 
responsible for some 185 
Americans in 13 widely scattered 
jails, wrote articles in English- 
language magazines and 
newspapers to enlist the support 
and interest of the American 
community in Ihe plight of the 
American prisoners They also 
wrote to US, pharmaceutical 
companies for contributions of 

"I was tending to pus*^ the 
Department to do more for 
prisoners or anyone in trouble," 
recalls Wood, a former Peace 
Corps volunteer and psychiatric 
counselor. 'That seems lo be the 
direction the Department is 
leaning in" 

Still, there are definite limits to 
what consular officers can do, 
Hnnac points out And all their 
efforts aren't going to change the 
basic differences between 
American and foreign penal 

Says veteran consular officer 
Loren Lawrence. ■'The prison 
system we have in the United 
States is the product of a 
moderately enlightened nation 
with a surplus of money to spend 
— and just look at our prisons. 
What can you possibly anticipate

The total number of students

The 197&-77 Milligan College In- 
tramural program, which began 
recently with flag football for 
men, will attempt to gain greater 
student participation this year, 
especially for the women Dr. 
Clark. Mrs. Fontaine. Coach 
Stout, and Coach Walker will be 
working as advisers along with 
the Intramural Council in order 
to coordinate and supervise this 
year's activities, Doug Thatcher 
is the head director of In- 
tramurals, and he will be assisted 
by Alan Shely, men's director, 
and Ruth Jordan, women's direc- 
tor. Other Intramural Council 
members are Randy Ross, Mike 
Norfleet, and Roger Babik. 

The men's program appears 
headed for a very successful 
year. Along with fbg football, 
volleyball will be added to the 

men's competition during the fall 
semester Basketball games will 
be played during the winter mon- 
ths and Softball during the spring 
semester. Last year, men's com- 
petition was marred by forfeits. 
Consequently, a major goal for 
this year's men's program is the 
elimination of all forfeits. In an 
attempt to reduce the number of 
forfeiti. the •"■ommuter team will 
be dropped this year. All com- 
muters will participate on the 
Red team in competition versus 
the seven other teams 

As most upperclassmen 
realize, women's intramural ac- 
tivities have been practically 
nonexistent in the past, par- 
ticularly last year. The advisers 
and the Intramural Council mem- 
bers want to change things for the

while Yellow captured the tour- 
nament crown. Red also won a 
championship by winning the 
basketball tournament 

Behind the Basketball Buffs 

Six months ago. the Basketball 
Buffs captured the first VSAC 
roundball championship in 
Milligan's history. In a few mon- 
ths, the Buffs will begin their 
quest for a second straight title 
But before the basketball season 
gets into full swing, it seems ap- 
propriate that we should 
recognize three students who will 
be working behind the scenes 
with the basketball team this 
year Tom Jones. Kevin Speas. 
and Roger Babik are these young 
men who comprise Coach 
Worrell's so-called professional 
staff The professional staff 
memljers work full-time with the 
basketball team. They attend all 
p.actices and games, and they 
also put in many hours before and 
after games and practice 

Tom Jones, a senior Bible 
major from FoUansbee. W Va , is 
beginning his second year with 

the professional staff This year. 
Tom will be in charge of equip- 
ment for the team He is really 
looking forward to his final year 
at Milligan and all the good times 
with the baskettiall team. When 
asked about this year's basket- 
ball squad. Tom remarked, 
"We've got a great chance to 
repeat as VSAC champs this 
year" Tom's most memorable 
game last year was the exciting 
6&-67 victory over Tennessee 
Wesleyan in the VSAC tour- 

Kevin Speas, another second- 
year professional staff member, 
comes to Milligan from Winston- 
Salem. N C Kevin is a 
sophomore Business major and 
he serves as the trainer for the 
basketball team Kevin is an- 
ticipating a lot of fun and ex- 
citement with this year's squad. 
He feels that this might be the 
year for Kansas City and a shot at 

the .\AIA championship. When 
asked to recall last years most 
exciting game. Kevin mentioned 
the thrilling 79-77 victory over 
Gardner-Webb in last year's Tip- 

Roger Babik. a newcomer to 
the professional staff this year, is 
a sophomore Business major 
from Cincinnati, Ohio, He will be 
the head statistician this year 
Roger foresees a great year for 
the Buffs, and he is especially 
looking forward to the 
Thanksgiving tnp to Florida 
because he's never been in the 
Sunshine state Roger hesitated 
to give a prediction for this 
season but he thinks that "we'll 
be heard from this year when we 
put it all together ■' 

Our hats fand dinks) are off to 
the professional staff, coaching 
staff, and players as we 
anxiously await a fantastic 1976- 
77 basketball campaign'

Sunday Vespers 
A Huge Success 

Just In - 


NOV 1 

Political Get Down pp 4,5 

Sunday night vesper services 
seem to be off to a good start 
this season, All of the sessions 
thus far have had over a hun- 
dred in attendance. Especially 
appealing is the attempt to 
provide those who attend with a 
warm spirit of fellowship and a 
meaningful approach to one's 
Christian life 

One of the outstanding 
features of the vesper services 
is the spiritual guidance of Mr 
Tommy Oakes, A popular 
preacher and evangelist in the 
area. Mr, Oakes has assumed 
the leadership of the group 
while attending Emmanuel 
School of Religion full time 
Tommy is a graduate of 
Johnson Bible College ?nd the 
former minister of the Hampton 
Christian Church. 

Because of other com- 
mitments, however, there will 
be a few Sunday nights when 
Tommy will be unavailable. On 
these evenings the vespers 
committee has planned a series 
of outdoor campfires. to be held 
on Anglin Field. 

God's Hands has been 
responsible for the musical 
portions of the program, and 
they have delighted those at- 
tending with their straight- 
forward proclamation of the 

gospel in song. Others who 
might be interested in offering 
special music should see Dirck 
Edward Spencer of God's 

Vespers is sponsored solely 
by the Religious Affairs 
Committee of the Student 
Government Association and is 
entirely self-supporting. Out of 
the weekly offerings a set fee of 
S30 is given to Mr, Oakes and 
the remainder of the collection 
will go to a worthy cause. In the 
past the Vespers committee has 
designated the surplus to aid the 
Nelson Family It is also hoped 
that there can be enough money 
raised to bring a musical group 
to Milligan such as The 
Jeremiah People 

An evaulation of the ef- 
fectiveness fo the Vespers 
program was made prior to fall 
break It is hoped that the 
present program is meeting the 
spiritual needs of those who 
attend, but the committee is 
open for new ideas and 

Sunday nights at 9:00 is the 
time and Lower Seeger is the 
place for an evening of 
Christian fellowship and 
spiritual refreshment. Ail are 
welcome I 

Same Parking Problem 

Milligan's 300+ cars are 
creating 'jiiite a pr ^lem for 
both students and Tr fie Court 
Due to inadequate parking 
space, it has become necessary 
for the Court to issue and en- 
force stricter rules concerning 
cars on campus. 

Violators of parking 
regulations in the past could 
rest easy after 5:00 pm since 
no ticket givers were on duty 
then. In the future, however, the 
Traffic Court will have ticket 
givers patrolling the campus at 
various times after 5:00 p.m. 

Tickets will also be given for 
excessive speeding and careless 

driving With the large numl>er 
of children which are present on 
campub. such a measure is 
indeed necessary. Recom- 
mended speeds for the campus 
roads are: 30 mph on the main 
road, in accordance with state 
law, and 20 mph on all other by- 

According to Dave Wantz. 
chairman of the Traffic Court, 
the policy taken towards 
negligent drivers has been 
somewhat lax in the past, but 
will, by necessity, have to 
become stricter in the future. 
Thus far, only about S25 has 
beer collected in fines by the 

Traffic Court 

Dave also commented that 
every effort was being taken to 
acquire more parking space. It 
is his goal to provide all 
students with parking spaces as 
close as possible to their 
destination Until then, 
however, some students may 
have to sacrifice this pri\'ilege 
until the parking problem can 
be alleviated. 

A complete list of rules and 
regulations for campus drivers 
IS available from either Mrs. 
Fontaine or Mrs. Mayfield.

Bailey Arrives from Jamaica 

Welcome Dennis Bailey to your 
campus, Dennis is the young 
man from Jamaica that the 
Ministerial Association has 
been working so hard to get to 
Milligan. Through the combined 
efforts of several organizations 
and individuals, Dennis will be 
spending the next few years in 
the States preparing for a 
ministry in his homeland 

Mr. Bailey is from the Port 
More Church of Christ in 
Kingston, Jamaica. According 
to Dr Webb, faculty advisor to 
the Ministerial Association, 
Jamaica is a critical area 
deeply in need of committed 
and well-trained Christian men 
and women In recent times, the 
Jamaican government has had 
growing affinities with the 
Communism of Cuba and 
Castro, thus threatening the 

freedom of worship now en- 
joyed by Jamaican Christians 

At present, Jamaica has only 
38 established churches, with no 
facilities for higher education in 
religion Therefore, it is 
necessary for aspiring 
ministers to seek their training 
elsewhere With this in mind, 
the Ministerial Association 
sought the support of 
brotherhood churches, campus 
organizations, and concerned 
individuals 'o help bring Mr 
Bailey to Milligan The finan- 
cial support of the Christian 
Service Club and the money 
received from the Student 
Government Association's Day 
of Fasting were especially 

Dennis hopes to graduate 
from Milligan with a Bible 
major. Currently he is enrolled 

in the usual freshman level 
courses humanities. Old 
Testament survey, and 

Wehn asked about his first 
impressions of th'? Unites 
States. Dennis replied that he 
found the atmosphere to be very 
friendly and that he im- 
mediately felt right at home 
Mr Bailey's own friendliness 
and open attitude commends 
Itself highly to those Mil'igan 
students who are interested in 
missionary work and cross- 
cultural relationships 

The Ministerial Association 
and Dr Webb should be highly 
commended for their active 
interest and support of such a 
project Hopefully, more 
students from around the world 
will l>e able to find a solid 
Christian education in this

You 've Come A Lo 

It is not uncommon on our 
campus to hear girls com- 
plaining about the curfew. But 
after a careful search through 
old files, it is evident that our 
regulations arequite liberal and 
that the girls of Milligan College 
are given much more freedom 
than in the past. For example, 
up until May 1969 (which is not 
that long ago), girls were 
required to sign out for off- 
campus activities before five 
o'clock if they were going to the 
immediate area. If they left 
earlier in the afternoon and did 

not plan to return until after five 
o'clock, they also had lo sign 
out Before that time it was 
necessary for girls to have 
invitation letters sent to the 
dorm mother if they planned to 
go away overnight or for the 
weekend In that same year 
pant dresses became ac- 
ceptable attire for classes, 
dining hall, library, etc., as long 
as they were dress length Short 
pant dresses were considered 
the same as shorts and were not 
allowed. Slacks could be worn in 
the library after five o'clock on 

God's Hands Change (Again) 

God's Hands have added a 
new vocalist to their group, Jeff 
Deaton of Winchester, Ken- 
lucky. Jeff is a freshman and 
plans to major in Bible. 

Informed sources say that 
Jeff holds third place in the 
group's beard growing contest, 
outgrowing Gary Richardson 
and Jon Arvin by just a shave 
According to an updated news 
release, however, Mr Deaton 
has taken a razor to his chin 
Still, one cannot be too sure! 

God's Hands have a busy 
schedule before them this fall, 
and are twMjked solid through 
the end of the semester Various 
trips will be made to places 
such as Nashville and Pitt- 
sburgh, performing at the latter 
for the Eastern Christian 
Convention Closer to home, the 
group will he performmg during 
Student Recruitment Weekend 
coming up later on this fall. A 
tour IS also planned for the 
Thanksgiving holidays. 

Oak Ridge Symposium 

A special three-day seminar 
on the topic "Energy and the

stress the role of the social 
sciences in solving the energy

Saturday breakfast and lunch. 
Also It was no longer necessary 
to cover physical education 
shorts while going to and from 
the gym 

The big news of the school 
year of 1966 was that one girl 
from Hart and two from Sutton 
I does this say something?), 
were selected as "monitors" 
with the duty of making sure 
each girl was where she was 
signed out to be. The girls had to 
sign out to a specific place and 
had to give a definite time of 
departure (Ex For the Library 
7:00 - 9:00 and the SUB 9:00 ■ 
9:451 If a girl decided to leave 
the library for the SUB earlier, 
she had to sign a paper at the 
main desk in the library 
Failure to do this resulted in a 
session with the Dean of 
Women. Also in 1966, a check 
was made on the numtier of 
nights the girls stayed out. 
Freshmen with a 2.0 average 
were allowed one night out a 
week. Sophomores and Juniors 
with a 2-5 average were allowed 
Iwo nights, if their average was 
lower, one night Seniors with a 
2.5 or better were permitted to 
go out every night , and all girls 
were given Saturday nights. 
Each girl was also allowed a 45 
minule break each evening 
which could be taken at the SUB 
or off campus. 

In February 1965 an article o/i 
appeared in the Stampede about .\ [ 
the large amount of complaints ij(' J 

campus, to the SUB, on and 
around the tennis courts, and to 
the laundromat 

A big step was made for 
women in 1946. special 
provisions were made to allow 
the girls to patronize Uie SUB m 
thi, evening twice weekly, on 
Monday nights between nine 
and ten o'clock, and on Friday 
nights after the movies for not 
over one half hour. Also, during 
the 1940'8 upon enrollment each 
girl received a "Handtxwk for 
Girls" with the rules that they 
were to adhere to 

The 1930's revealed some 
interesting provisions too, E^ch 
girl was required to observe a 
"Quiel Hour" from two to three 
o'clock every Sunday afternoon, 
TTiis hour was set aside for rest, 
reflection and letter writing. All 
girls were to stay in their own 
rooms. During these years all 

■esses worn had to be ap- 
proved by the Dean of Women, 
and a special gymnasium suit 
was required. It must have been 
charming, for it consisted of 
black bloomers, black hose a 
black middy tie, a white blouse 
and white tennis shoes 

During the school year 1922- 
1923 a rule was issued which 
provided that young women 
could receive calls from young 
men once a week, Sunday af- 
ternoon from three lo five 
o'clock. Each evening the men 
could be invited to the parlors 
lor games and a social pasttime 
from 6:00 - 6:30, This always 
had to be at the discretion of the 
Dean of Women and was 
referred lo as the '"Conference 

So Milligan women, as these 
rules and regulations are read 
over it does seem obvious that, 
"You've Come a Long Way, 

Chance to Prove Your Faith 

A faith promise rally will be 
held on campus this year as 
usual during October 19, 20, and 
21 , It is planned to have services 
nightly at 7:00 p,m. at the 
Hopwood Christian Church in 
addition to two regular con- 
vocation periods 

Featured speakers will be Dr 
Scott Bartchy of Emmanuel 
School of Religion and Mr, 
Charles E Faust of the Go Ye 
Chapel Mission in New York It 
is hoped to include a forum 
discussion involving the 
speakers Some of the following 
questions will be discussed: Are 
methods now practiced by 
missionaries obsolete'' To what 
extent do missionaries 
Americanize rather than 

Christianize the pagan world? 
Is there anything a concerned 
individual can do in support of 
missions in addition to one's 
prayers and offerings? 

The rally will be sponsored by 
the Collegiate Church in con- 
junction with the Mission Club 
All students, faculty, and 
friends are encouraged to give 
Iheir support to this project by 
attending the sessions and 
contributing financially if 
pocEib!? The money collected 
from the rally will go to a 
specific designated mission. 

Collegiate Church is also 
actively seeking to make itself 
available to meet the spiritual 
needs of Milligan's students. 
Services are held weekly in 
Upper Seegar at 10:30 am. A

Gwaltney are conducting the 

The organization of Collegiate 
Church this year is very similar 
to a regular church. A worship, 
mission, finance, and education 
committees have been set up lo 
facilitate the church's func- 
tions. It is also possible for a 
student to enroll himself in part- 
time membership with the 
church. This in no way negates 
one's membership elsewhere, 
but a ids in the coherence of the 

Collegiate Church is also 
seeking information concerning 
local and campus Bible studies. 
It is hoped to publish a list of 
such meetings to let the 
students know about them who

The subject of dating is very 
much like the universe in one 
respect. The more we learn about 
it, the more dwarfed we are by its 
dimensions. Of all the lecturers 
I've heard speak on dating, not 
one has considered himself an 
expert There are more theories 
on dating than Carter had 
peanuts. Then why, you ask. is 
Gary — a mere drip in the ocean 
of lile — tackling such a lough 
subject. Well, for the same 
reason a lot of bad ballplayers 
make great coaches. They have a 
greater insight into the game 
because they know everything 
that can possibly go wrong. 

Of course, dating, like a coin, 
has two sides. The men's side and 
the right side. Now guys, don't 
get me wrong — I'm rooting for 
you all. But we must realize from 
the outset, that the guy is at the 
disadvantage. We're like the 
Texas Rangers — we just can't 
win. The game is rigged from the 
beginning. And girls — if you 
don't agree — read on.

by Gary Richardson 

"game playing" And althougn 
men participate in the sport, 
women make the rules. Take for 
example the very popular game 
called "The Guess What's 
Bothering Me Today Game." The 
rules are simple, Anywhere from 
2 to 6 million can play First, the 
woman draws a card to see what 
mood she is to be in. For 
example, she may draw the "he 
doesn't understand me" card If 
so, she should act typically 
displeased. If she draws a 
"happy today" card she is to 
pretend she's feeling poorly 
anyway just to make sure that he 
really cares. And if she picks the 
"because he doesn't love me" 
card she is to make his life 
miserable for the rest of his days. 
The man then is to employ any 
means of admonishmeni he can 
muster to extract the answer 
from her. Should he get anywhere 
close to the right answer then the 
woman should select another 
Women have another ad- 
vantage over men that is often 

tijken for granted. Women havi 
the power of speech. On a date 
the poor fellow is usually so 
wrapped up in pleasing the girl 
that his conversation is usually 
reduced to clever witticisms as 
"Gosh, I really like your belt" 
and ''How long has your father 
been a hog farmer?" Meanwhile, 
the woman, free from the 
customary "male on date" 
hassles i driving, selection of 
entertainment, financesj. is able 
to concentrate completely on the 
next carefully calculated phrase. 
You begin to see how it works. 
The guy is trying hard to please. 
He pauses, his muscles tighten, 
and he asks, "Well, where would 
you like to eat?" Next, a moment 
of silence, and then the airtight 
response. "\Mie'rever you'd like

Just a stare. Well, we've all

For years I have considered 
myself a political moderate, a 
"middle-of-the-roader," as 
some would choose to call me 
Recently I began to Ihink about 
my moderation in terms of 
whether it was a viable stand, 
with its own means and con- 
sequences, or whether it was 
just a way of '■playuig it safe" 
when concrete choices were to 
be made Is there such a thing 
as a middle road in and of itself 
in politics, or is it simply a 
facade of indecision? 

This middle-of-the-road has 
been the focus of attack from 
many contemporary political 
analysts, for a variety of 
reasons. In the first place, 
moderation implies a sort of 
"luke-warmness." a vagueness 
of attitude In an article for 
Time magazine, Thomas 
Griffith noted that ■■. , , the 
middle encourages a fuzziness 
. . for it defines itself by letting 
others declare the extremes 
that it will compromise bet- 
ween," In essence, he has 
implied that the political 
middle-of-the-roader is in- 
capable of defining and 
initiating his own course of 
action independent of those 
extremes on either side of him. 
At the same lime there is the 
frequent criticisms that in the 
middle resides the bulk of fhe 
uninvojvedand apathetic, those 
who talk politics and when it is 
convenient and forget what they

middle has become a popuia 
roost for many politicians They 
have tried to walk the light rope 
between maintaining the status 
quo principles of American 
conservatives and identifying 
with the more fashionable, 
change-conscious American 
liberals. In this day and age of 
social and political com- 
plexities, that tight rope might 
just as soon tie a "jump rope." 
President Eisenhower, with a 
fairamount of facility, was able 
to prescribe a -political middle 
for his administration, but his 
middle was very broad-based, 
and rejected the categorization 
of individuals as conservative 
or liberal, right or left. 
President Nixon was not so 
fortunate Despite all his efforts 
to pursue the tight rope straight 
down the middle, he was 
inevitably tripped up by fateful 
causes: he was never able to 
shake loose that air of staunch 
conservatism which followed him 
out of the fifties, and when the 
mysteries of Watergate were 
publicly exposed, Nixon ap- 
peared in many ways a power- 
monger And was it not George 
McGoverns inability to come to 
the middle that spelled out his 
disastrous defeat in the election 
four years ago^ McGovem. 
too. was tripped by the "tight 
rope turned jump rope". 
Moderation has thus become a 
tough game for presidents and 
presidential candidates, simply 
because they have defined 
moderation as going about 
solving the needs of all interest 
groups in one formula, which is, 
of course, nonsensical. 

If moderation is to survive as a 
valid political position, it must be 
redefined. First of all. the 

A Bigger Choice Than You Think 

As the November elections 
draw nearer, and as the names 
of Jimmy Carter and Gerald 
Ford are drummed repeatedly 
in our minds, it is a relief to 
know that there is a numerous 
group of third-party candidates 
for president, 

- These candidates are as 
serious about the campaign as 
are the Republicans and 
Democrats, but they are serious 
in a different way. Most of them 
are not in the campaign to be 
president, rather, they are in it 
to publicize their particular

political middle cannul be 
thought of as a precise point 
between two extremes. There is 
no exact "golden mean" which 
perfectly compromises between 
conservative and liberal 
positions; rather, the political 
middle encompasses those who 
fall just right of the middle 
(moderate conservatives* and 
those who fall just left of the 
middle (moderate liberalsj, 
However, moderation allows for 
eclecticism, so that an individual 
may be moderately liberal on one 
issue and moderately con- 
sen.'ative on another. Moderation 
must be defined not as a straight 
path but as a very crooked path 
which, though not appearing on 
the surface to have specific 
direction like the straight roads 
on either side, moves toward 
specific goals just the same 
Furthermore, political 
moderates, having rejected the 
very idea of "golden mean" 
solutions for complex political 
issues, treat these problems with 
a common sense seasoned by a 
balanced combination of logic 
and feeling Moderates realize 
that one constituency might gain 
more from a certain solution than 
another They realise that 
fairness is an extremely difficult 
end to achieve, but that with the 
opportunities time grants, it can 
be achieved. They realize that 
certain pwlitical problems will 
necessitate more radical change 
on the liberal side, while other 
problems will demand close 
adherence to established values 
on the conservative side. 
Moderation is conscious not just 
of the immediacy of the present, 
but of the lessons of the past and 
the prospects of the future.

moderalt-s'' Moderates are thost- 
who cciiservatism does not lag 
into stagnation but maintains its 
human face and responsiveness, 
feeling the needs of all the people. 
Moderates are those who 
liberalism produces needed 
change without sacrificing in the 
process the values which bring us 
together. Moderates view life in 
terms of values and beliefs, not in 
material terms necessarily They 
realize that a society must help 
its poor, but in so helping have 
the insight that there will always 
be poor people, and that the 
greatest effort, in the long run. 
must be toward raising the 
quality of life. Moderates do not

nourish a status quo which is in 
and of Itself good, but sanction 
the right of each new generation 
to question its own principles. 

I must, in defending the 
legitimacy of political 
moderation, conclude that 
political moderates are indeed 
quite capable of initiating action 
to solve pressing problems, but 
will always be preoccupied with 
the quality of the solutions 
arrived at, and not just the 
rapidity of their being carried 
out "The action taken by 
moderates will be that which is 
tempered by the scrutiny of 
experience, and the compassion 
of good will. 

Carter Charisma 

Jimmy Carter. He is an 
enigma. What sort of man is he"* 
From the influence of his 
parents, the Navy, and his 
business career. Jimmy Carter 
has developed a complex 
personality. Time calls him a 
"conservative businessman and 
farmer." and "ambitious 
achiever and compassionate 
social liberal " His '■*i^\\- 
calculated primary campaign 
and unification of the 
Democratic party show shrewd 
judgment and strength of 
leadership. His "charisma," 
whether unintentional or 
planned, has caizsed a nation 
torn with doubts and political 
cynicism to trust in a leader 

But, behind that wide grin is a 
man of action. Carter has 
proposed a long overdue 
housecleaning of the 
Washington "'Bureaucracy 
Club." He wants to reduce the 
great number of agencies 
presently on energy — to a 
smaller. more efficient 
operation on the energy 
problem. He has also proposed 
many tax reforms. Carter has 
said he wishes to "shift the 
burden ... on the rich, the big 
corporations and the special - 

interest groups." His running 
mate. Senator Mondale, has 
said thai the lax plan will in- 
clude the closing of loopholes 
for incomes of $50,000 or more. 
This would bring Ux relief to 
the middle and lower income 

In the recent televised debate. 
Carter pointed out many of 
Ford's deficiencies in the past 
two years Ford and Congress 
nave not cooperated Ford' 
continually blames Congress 
for lis inability to legislate on 
needed reforms. Yet Ford 
should know how to manipulate 
the congressmen, having been 
one for 25 years. On the other 
hand, when Congress has" 
passed bills. Ford has exercised 
his veto power 56 times in the 
two years of his administration. 
Carter, by stating these facts, 
recognizes the importance of a 
working legislative - exec'Uve 
relationship, rather than u.e 
cold war waged by Ford. 

"It's a time to draw ourselves 
together , , , with mutual res- 
pect for a change, cooperating 
for a change, in the open for a 
change So the people can un- 
derstand their own govern- 

Go With Ford! 

weeks ago this would have been 
the expected headling in the 
November 3, 1976, mommg 
newspaper, but not anymore. 

After the Democratic Con- 
vention Carter was on top of all 
the polls by a margin that many 
people thought would go un- 
challenged Looking at tlie pou^ 
now shows that a close race is in 
the making and Carter, the 
once thought runaway victor, 
has met a challenge in Gerald 
R Ford. 

Since the beginning of his 
campaign. Ford has let the 
people know where he stands on 
the issues In the first round of 
debates, which dealt with 
economic and domestic affairs. 
Ford stated that there is a great 
need for tax reduction in the 
middle-income bracket Those 

Ford included in the middle- 
income bracket were those 
people earning between 
$8,000 00 and $25,000 00 - 
$30,000 00 Ford was challenged 
as to why the taxes had risen so 
much in the past few years and 
especially since the 

Republicans had been in 
charge "Democrats con- 
trolled Congress for 22 years 
and they have written all the tax 

Ford's strategy is to show 
carter as a big spender, citing 
the debt he left as Georgia's 
governor as an example. 

Another area that Ford has 
stressed is that of finding more 
jobs. According to Ford, "the 
best way to get jobs is to expand' 
the private sector" He went on 
to say that 5 out of every 6 jobs 
are in the private sector. Ford 

has said that the creation of 
public jobs is not the way to 
fight unemployment problems 
as it only creates "dead-end 
jobs" Ford beheves the over- 
all economy should be improved 
so that private business hires 
more workers. 

Jobs and taxes are only two of 
the broad number of issues 
involved in this campaign. This 
year's election had an added 
feature to help voters decide — 
the debates The second debate 
took place Octot>er 6. in San 
Francisco, and the topics were 
foreign affairs and defense. 
Carter tells the American 
people to trust him. but as Ford 
said, "Trust is not having to 
guess what the candidate 
means. . Trust is not being all 
things to all people but being the 
same thing to all people "

Letter To The Editor 

October 4. 1976 
The Editor 
The Stampede 
MiJIigan College. TN 37682 

Dear Sir: 

1 have spent the last four years 
of my life at Milligan College as a 
student and now as an employee; 
Milligan College has come to 
mean a great deal to me. I can 
see so clearly the tremendous 
need for the existence of Milligan 
College and the principle truths 
that Milligan is founded upon. 
During the past four years. I have 
tossed back and forth in my mind 
the following questions. "WTiat 
can be done to encourage greater 
commitment to Christ and 
spiritual growth among the 
members of the Milligan com- 
munity?" "What positive steps 
could be taken by the ad- 
ministration of Milligan College 
to raise the educational and 
spiritual unity on campus?" 
Through much prayer and 
discussion with students, alumni, 
board members, faculty, and 
administration. I have come to 
several conclusions which I 
would like to share with the 
Milligan community. 

1 would like to suggest that 
Milligan College seriously con- 
sider a reevaluation and 
redistribution of scholarship 
funds. Through the redistribution 
of these scholarship funds, the 
area of athletics, which is not 
Milligan's primary focal point, 
would no longer retain the bulk 
of shcolarship funds. There are 
several reasons behind this 
recommendation When one 
considers the enormous amount 
of finances poured into our 
athletic programs and then 
considers the results of these 
programs in terms of educational 
or spiritual value, the cost easily 
outweighs the benefits. The 
amount of money spent on in- 
tercollegiate athletics at Milligan 
is enormous, and the results in 
terms of attracting prospective 
students from our church con- 
stituency are relatively few. 
When considering student 
recruitment, the Concert Choir is 
probably one of the major 
drawing factors However. I have 
known of several students who 
have not tried out for Concert 
Choir because they did not have 
$100 to pay for a tuxedo, but I 
have never known of an athlete 
who did not try out for the 

Dear Hearts 


was a surprise so great that 1 
was shocked speechless. My 
throat felt like a basketball was 
playing yo yo in it. How did 
you ever get a whole college full 
of people to keep this glorious 
event a complete secret? I 
walked the bridge to the tune of 
'"Happy Birthday to You" 
without the slightest suspicion 
of thC'Significance of the oc- 
fasion. Not till some one pointed 
and said "Prof, look at the 
banner", that big fifty foot 
banner, did I realize that you 
had planned it for me That is 
when 1 lost my speech. That is 
when the basketball in my 
throat began to play yo yo . 
And words still fail me. Even 
the poorest service is repaid 
with thanks. But for joy so 
exquisite it cannot last, and yet 
still more exquisite when past, 
for friendship so generously and 
so beautifully exhibited, for love 
so richly displayed, words fail 

It was a most humbling ex- 
perience What have I ever done 
to deserve such a tribute from 
you'' I have tried, un- 
successfully I must admit, to 

recall a word said or a deea 
done to or for any one of you 
much less all of you, that you 
would honor me so greatly. But 
this 1 do Itnow. I am a better 
man because it has been my 
privilege to know you and to 
love you. Each day as I see your 
eager, smiling happy faces my 
s trength is renewed, my hap- 
piness is increased, my joy runs 
over, my inspiration reaches 
greater heights, my pride in you 
becomes excessive and my love 
for you knows no bounds. Then a 
prayer of thankfulness wings its 
way to the Father of us all for 
giving you to me 

If I ever get to be an old man, 
the memory of this day with 
your happy beautiful faces will 
be one of the very brightest 
gems in the front lanes of my 
memory, as brilliant then as 
now It's effulgent rays still 
emitting courage, hope and 
love, with the message that life 
is good. 

Dear Hearts, you will have to 
sense my appreciation and 
gratitude and thanks They are 
beyond the power of words to 

Ye Ole Prof. 

Milligan Students Favor Ford

basketball team because he did 
not have the money for a 
uniform, tennis shoes, or even 
socks Along this same line, there 
are between five and eight 
scholarships available for music 
students this year (none of these 
budgetedi ; how many are 
available for athletes? Another 
aspect of the same scholarship 
question is, what are the amounts 
of the music scholarships com- 
pared to the amounts of the 
basketball or athletic scholar- 
ships'' For this year, the largest 
music scholarship is $150. Ask 
these same questions in any other 
academic area on campus and I 
am afraid you will find the same 
unfortunate answers. Upon the 
reallocation of these scholarship 
funds, we could use our money 
for many other worthwhile 
purposes of higher spiritual and 
academic value, 

I would also like to recommend 
hiring a Campus Coordinator for 
Spiritual Activities on a part-tini e 
basis Clubs such as Christian 
Service Club, Service Seekers 
and Missions Club, along with the 
service projects of other clubs on 
campus, such as Delta Kappa, 
and the Religious Affairs Com- 
mittee of the Student Govern- 

ment Associa tion are evidence to 
the fact that Milligan students 
are interested and active in 
Christian service on campus and 
in this community. What is 
lacking on campus is a unifying 
element — something to bring us 
all together as a positive, 
acting body of Christians, For a 
campus of this size, a full-time 
person would not be necessary. 
The Campus Coordinator could 
be an Emmanuel student who has 
an interest in and a love for young 
people The responsibility of this 
person would mostly be to 
identify himself with the already 
existing campus activities, thus 
adding a great amount of 
stability and continuity to these 
activities. Another responsibility 
could be to determine the wants 
of Milligan students as far as 
weekly services such as vespers, 
dormitory devotions, or perhaps 
a mid-week revival hour, with 
area ministers and Milligan 
personnel to bnng messages. 
Other aspects of the work could 
include occasional special ser- 
vices such as "BigT's." the ef- 
fective "Togetherness" evenings 
held two years ago The Campus 
Coordinator should, to be most 
effective, work closely with 

After Seeing 
Both Sides 

Collegiate Church, the Christian 
service clubs on campus, any 
other clubs interested in en- 
couraging religious activities on 
campus, and the Religious 
Affairs Committee of the Student 
Government Association, This 
perhaps could eventually evolve 
into a type of religious counal of 
some significance which would 
provide Milligan College students 
with a spiritual unity that is so 
desperate ly needed 

The question which we must 
ask ourselves is, "Where are out 
priorities?" Are we an 
educational institution upholding 
the cause upon which we were 
founded, or have we lost sight of 
those spiritual goals? If we claim 
to be the "hope of the world," 
then we have a responsibility to 
upgrade to the highest possible 
level the educational areas of 
Milligan as well as to strive to 
produce and maintain the highest 
possible level of spiritual com- 
mitment to the Christ, which 
should be our first priority. Many 
students and faculty members 
have expressed a deep concern 
over these issues and so I would 
like to challenge the Board of 
Trustees to investigate these 
issues now! 

Yours in Christ,

Ray Blanton 

There's Still Hope for Tennessee 

Last year at Fall Con- 
vocation, Milligan students and 
faculty had the dubious 
privilege of hearing Tennessee 
Governor Ray Blanton In his 
gubernatorial campaign in 1974, 
Blanton was elected to save 
Tennessee from the evils of a 
previous Republican Governor. 
His campaign slogan was "We 
need a Ftay of Blanton sun- 
shine " After hearing this 
illustrious governor stumble 
through his speech, it was clear 
to me that Tennessee was in for 
some rainstorms. 

The governor obviously had 
not seen his speech until he 
arrived, as he had great dif- 
ficulty reading it He totally 
destroyed some quite ordinary 
words and seemed to lose his 
place several times As a 
Tennessee resident. I hope he 
reads the bills passed by the 
legislature better than he read 
his speech. 

But the content of the speech 
— surely that made up for 

Blanton's poor reading ability? 
Unfortunately not The 
governor's speech was typical 
of today's politician — full of 
inconsistencies, vague 
generalizations, and glowing 
promises Blanton. known for 
his inaction and lack of com- 
mitment concerning the ETSU 
Medical School, for some 
strange reasons (perhaps it was 
the East Tennessee climate) 
spoke out in favor of the med 
school. In fact, he even 
promised to do all he could to 
ensure that East Tennessee got 
the med school as soon as 
possible. We're still waiting. 

As a citizen of Tennessee, I 
was frankly ashamed to say 
that Blanton was our governor 
Blanton lived up to the Yankee's 
view of a typical Tennessean — 
illiterate, backwards, and 
rather dim-witted. He enhanced 
my distrust of politicians and 
made me wonder how Ten-

nessee could survive his ad- 

But are all Tennessee 
politicians like Blanton ** For- 
tunately. Milligan also had a 
chance to witness the antithesis 
of Blanton. in the appearance of 
Tennessee Senator Bill Brock, 
who spoke at this year's Fall 
Convocation. Brock was 
refreshingly candid and for- 
thright. In fact, he was an in- 
spiration in these days of 
political scandal and lack of 
faith in our government. 
Brock's speech was extremely 
well -delivered as well as ex- 
cellent in content. He was 
surprisingly non-partisan in this 
election year, and he answered 
questions thoughtfully and 
honestly I was very impressed 
by Brock's candor and ability, 
and was genuinely proud to be a 
Tennessean. Thank you. 
Senator Brock, for helping to 
restore a little faith in govern- 
ment and in humanity.

Class Activities Projected 

3thuol has betn in session for 
over a month now and each 
class has had a chance to elect 
officers and formulate ideas for 
the coming year According to 
the class presidents Milligan 
will have a year full of activities 
and worthwhile projects. 

The Senior Class helped lo get 
things rolling the iirst couple of 
weeks of school b^ sponsoring 
an all-school skating party It 
was a good way of getting 
people together early in the 
school year as woll as being a 
lot of fun. They also held a class 
meeting last month in order to 
elect officers and develop ideas 
for further activities. 

The Junior Class is currently 
planning for one of Milligan's 
traditional activities, Twirp 
Week, which is to be from 
October 31 to November 6. For 
those who don't know what it is, 
Twirp Week is when the guys 
and girls reverse roles to the 
extent that the girls are suppose 
to carry guys books, open doors 
for them, and even ask them out 
[or a date, A big attraction 
during Twirp Week will be a 
50's Skating Party designed lo 
bring back those nostalgic 
years. Everyone is encouraged 
to dress like the Fifties and act 
like the "Fonz" There will also 
be other activities during the 
week which may include a 
banquet and a movie 

The Sophomore Class also 
helped to get the year started 
off in the right direction with a 
Cartoon Night, This is a favorite 
activity on campus t)ecause 
even though we're still kids at 
heart, we don't like to get up 

early on Saturday morning to 
watch cartoons. Another 
Cartoon Night is being planned 
as well as some prayer 
meetings for Thanksgiving, 
Christmas, and Easter, and 
possibly a skating parly early 
next semester The class is 
planning several fund-raising 
activities with a goal of $800 - 
$1000 by the end of the year 
These funds will go toward 
expenses druing the next two 
years such as leaving a gift lo 
the school their Senior year, an 
all-class parly, and pwssibly a 
Senior trip 

The Freshman Class elected 
its officers at a class meeting 
last month and are beginning lo 
get ideas together to make their 
first year here at Milligan a 
good one. They are planning 
several fund-raising activities 
in order to get a treasury 
started The class is also 
planning a special treat for the 
school which will be revealed 
after Fall Break They have 
good leadership in their new 
officers and it appears that our 
Freshman Class is going to 
have a great year

Students Choose Cheerleaders 

Girls' Volleyball! Don't Misss the Excitement 

Rock'em Socc'em 

After three weeks ol practice 
and all of the trauma connected 
with Iryouls, Milligan's 1976-77 
female cheerleaders have been 
selected. This year's group 
consists of 3 freshmen. 2 
-Sophomores, and 1 senior. 

Only two of the girls have 
returned from last year's 
squad, Kitty Berry and Cindy 
Keefauver. Kitty is a 
sophomore from Williamsporl, 
Indiana She realty loves to 
cheer and she has thoroughly 
enjoyed her past cheerleading 
experiences in high school and 
at MiUigan. Kitty expects 
school spirit to be better than 
ever this year since the Buffs 
are the defending VSAC 
champs, Cindy is a sophomore 
from Jonesboro. Tennessee, 
Besides cheering during her 
freshman year at Milligan. 
Cindy was a cheerleader for 4 
years at Daniel Boone High 
Miss Keefauver is anxiously 
awaiting another exciting vear 

rwjting for the thrill-a-minute 

The four girls who are new to 
Milligan's cheerleading scene 
are Barb Galleher, Marti 
Moore, Christy Thompson, and 
Carol Whisnant. Barb, who is a 
freshman, comes to Milligan 
from Mt. Gilead, Ohio. Since 
she has never been a 
cheerleader before. Barb Is 
especially excited about being 
on this year's squad. She wants 
to see great school spirit shown 
at Milligan, Barb said that she 
"wants to keep everyone 
smiling during this year's 
games"- Marti is a freshman 
from Kingsport. Tennessee, 
where she cheered at Dobyns- 
Bennett High, She feels quite 
honored to have been selected 
as a cheerleader Marti wants 
the student body to really get 
behind the team because "it's 
going to be a great year". 
Christy, who is also a freshman. 
makes her home in Louis%-iIIe, 

Kenlutky Since Christy had no 
cheerleading experience in high 
school, she was pleasantly 
surprised to be selected for the 
squad- She is really looking 
forward to the coming season 
and a new and exciting ex- 
perience, Carol Whisnant. the 
only senior on the squad, is from 
Hampton, Tennessee, Before 
transferring to Milligan, she 
attended Johnson Bible College, 
where she was a cheerleader. 
Carol is really excited about 
working with the other girls, 
and she "can't wait for the 
season to get started" 

Male cheerleaders are to be 
added to the squad soon, but no 
official announcement has been 
made yet. Once the entire squad 
has been assembled, a captain 
or co-captains will be elected 
and fund-raising plans will be 
discussed, A great year is in 
store for our newly elected 
cheerleaders — 
congratulations, girls!! 

The newest organization on 
campus is the soccer club- The 
club was organized by several 
soccer enthusiasts who want to 
build a soccer program at 
Milligan They hope to organize 
a team that can compete on the 
intercollegiate level in a couple 
of years- Hopefully then, the 
administration would consider 
supporting an intercollegiate 
soccer team 

Vusi Dube, an adept soccer 
player from Africa, is teaching 
basic soccer skills to club 
members- The club has been 
holding practices at 2:00 on 
Saturday afternoons They are 
hoping to organize some mid- 
week practice sessions, too 
Also, plans have been made to 
contact some area colleges that 

have soccer teams iKing & 
Tusculum) to see if some 
scnmmages can be arranged 

Seventeen players showed up 
for the first practice back in 
September They are: Dave 
Bickel, Vusi Dube. Jim 
Dahlman, Kim Frazier, Craig 
Hart, Tim Kirkland. Joe 
Koroma. Joe McConnaughey 
Paulo Mello. Mike Norflet't 
Mike Osborn. Mike Perduf 
Mark Richardson, Mark 
Summers, Doug Thatcher, Mike 
Thomas, and Mike Wead, Ne^^ 
members are needed and are 
welcome to attend practices,

The Good Old Days 

The last STAMPEDE con 
tained an article dealing with the 
privileges of women on MilUgan's 
campus. But the guys were not 
excused from various rules and 
regulations. As a matter of fact, 
there were quite a few restnc- 
tions placed on the student body 
as a whole. One major restriction 
dealt with automobiles Up until 
1969 cars on campus were 
strongly discouraged and to have 
one a student had to have per- 
mission from the Dean Chapel 
services were daily until this 
time also, and attendance was 
mandatory. Also Bible school and 
Sunday morning worship was 
required of all students. 

Before the I920's men were 
urged not to ask the Dean for 
more than one weekend visit 
away a semester. No men were 
allowed to be absent from 
campus without the Dean of 
Men's permission. In 1928 thp 
men did get a break though, for m 

that year they were no longer 
required to report at breakfast 
and dinner on Mondays. 
Everyone had to attend all other 
meals, and this could t>e a bad 
scene since breakfast was seized 
at 7:00 and all the students had to 
be up by 6:30 An illness could be 
costly in those days for a dime 
was charged for all meals served 
in the dorm rooms 

A restriction that could really 
affect the present students at 
Milligan was enforced until the 
1940's This restriction prevented 
the sending of candy and boxes of 
food to the students. Some of us 
would starve to death! 

For many years chaperones 
were provided for every feature 
of social life. A 1924 catalog 
contained this statement; 
"Voung men under no cir- 
cumstances are to loiter about 
the girl's dormitory or molest the 
young women in their play, 
recreation, or study." (Are they 

by Charlene Britt 

to now?!) "At all times a per- 
fectly straight forward and 
business-like altitude must be 
maintained." (Sounds like fun. 

Up until the 1940's borrowing or 
lending money was considered 
bad practice and was strongly 
discouraged, Under no cir- 
cumstances were students ex- 
cused to leave early before a 
holiday or to return late An in- 
teresting restriction was en- 
forced; students were not per- 
mitted to buy at or to visit any 
store or eating place unless such 
was registered and approved by 
the Stale Board of Health and the 
Faculty, Students and also 
faculty were urged not to 
patronize business places that 
were open on Sunday 

It Is evident that times have 

changed and so have various 
rules and restrictions — Thank 
Heavens! ! 

The Hustler 

No, Delta Kappers are not all 
vampires or blowl drinkers! One 
look at October's schedule, 
however, might make you think 
that. On October 20, Delta Kappa 
helped with the Red Cross Blood 
Mobile and collected over 100 
pints of blood October 28-30, 

Delta Kappa sponsored 
Milligan's first haunted house. 
The profits will be used for 
playground equipment and 
scholarships One non-bioody 
activity planned by Delta Kappa 
was the hayride held during 
Twirp Week October proved to 

be a very busy month for Delta 

DelU Dappa would like to 
thank all those who gave blood, 
those who worked in the haunted 
house, and especially those who 
came to the haunted house

Letter to the Editor 

In the article appeanng in the 
Oct issue of the STAMPEDE, it 
was stated that the guys are at a 
disadvantage when dating We, 
the females of the species, 
disagree. We feel that females 
are at the disadvantage since we 
mtisl wait for the guys to make 
the first move, Otherwise we are 
labeled "man-chaser", 
"unladylike." and "forward" 
Granted, dating is made up of a 
lot of games, but it takes two to 
tango Both guys and girls have 
their own games The guys try to 
hide their feelings by showing no 
emotion, and it is interpreted by 
the girls as indifference. We 
females believe that many times 
we cannot even form friendships 
before the guy gets scared off and 
thinks she is out to get him. 

On the topic of "where would 
you like to eat?", the girl is at the 
disadvantage. She does not know 
how much her date is willing to 

spend so she usually replies "you 
decide" This enables the guy to 
take her to a place within his 
price range Then when a girl 
asks her date what he is going to 
order she is doing so because she 
does not want to spend more than 
he does. She is doing this out of 
consideration for him and not for 
selfish or deceitful moLives. 

Men have an old cliche, "you 
can never understand a woman', 
but women don't understand men 
either It is a two-way street. We 
feel that basically men and 
women think alike on most 
things, and yet there is a constant 
struggle of trying to figure each 
other out. We realize that his 
emotions are as strong as ours 
and no less important. In our 
society there is no stigma at- 
tached to a girl crying. Whereas, 
if the male cries he is considered 
weak. We don't think it is less 
dignant for a guy to cry and 

would rather at times have him 
express how he feels. If you guys 
would express yourselves out- 
wardly it would help prevent 
ulcers and other physical 
disorders caused from built-up 

In the previous article it was 
stated that the girl holds the 
trump card in the dating 
relationship. We feel that no one 
holds the trump card but it is up 
to the guy to make the first move. 
This is especially true at the end 
of a date. The girl can't very w;ell 
lean over and kiss the guy. Unless 
it is twirp week, it is just not her 
role We girls are in favor of 
having a week when the guys are 
required to ask the girls out. You 
guys might find out you like it. 
then there would be no dating 
problem on campus, and there 
would be no need for articles such 
as these.

My last article on dating 
seemed to have caused a minor 
stir among the loyal readers of 
"The STAMPEDE," Although 
the men hailed me as a 
conquering hero, I had several 
members of the female per- 
suasion confront me with "Are 
you serious?" and "Does dating 
really look (ike to guys?" Well, 
the answer lo both questions is 
maybe. The fine print on my 
poetic license states that there 
must l>e a certain element of 
truth in satire — but 1 don't, 
legally, have to reveal which is 
truth and which is exaggeration. 
All I can say is that 1, like Word- 
sworth, derive most of my in- 
spiration from my own personal 

During my formative state (jr. 
high) the very mention of the 
word "Date" would give me the 
quivers. "Dating" was a sport 
that was reserved for the bold 
and aggressive student who 
laughed in the face of danger and 
used Scope after he brushed his 
teeth. The kids that fell into this 
every elite group were the 
Student Council president, the 
fir^t chair clarinet player and the 
kid that only had to wear his 
braces for 8 months. These kids 
could actually be seen, on oc- 
casion, walking WITH their 
prospective dates in the school 
halls while the rumors flew 
rampant. "You mean they ac- 
tually went out on a DATE?" Yes 
follcs — it was eighth grade and 
the ice had h»een broken No more 
passing out 355 valentines to all 
the girls in the fifth grade and 
getting one back (from the 
teacher). No more twisting an 
apple stem to find the initial of 
your future girlfriend (and 
having it break off at Q), This 
was the big leagues. High School 

Well, once I got to high school, 
things didn't go exactly as I had 
planned Instead of starting out in 
fourth gear, it was more like 
reverse. And speaking of gears — 
remember how awkward it was 

to have your parents "chauffer ' 
you for your first dates in high 
school? How romantic and 
distinguished can a guy possibly 
be when his father is listening 
and watching in the rear-view 
mirror'' "My dear, your eyes are 
as twin pools of desire , , , oh. 
Dad, would you mind pushing the 
tape in''" I used to live in fear 
that my dad would catch a

my date I used to sit for 20 
minutes just making faces in the 
mirror in case he happened to 
peek. Of course that didn't go 
over too well with my father or 
my dates. Not too many girls 
appreciate being seen riding to a 
movie with a guy with his fist in 
his mouth 

Of course, when 1 got my 
driver's license my fortunes took 
a turn for the better, right? Don't 
count on it If you have the family 
car for the night, then you must 
pick up the girl by yourself — and 
that means waiting in her living 
room for two hours while her 
father stares at you, "Tell me 
son. I see you're wearing an 
army surplus jacket — are you 
considering joining the Army 
after school?" Oh no, sir. You 
couldn't get me in that freako

the Hammond organ. Well, my 
ex-girlfriend gracefully excused 
herself from her date and

the following message came

Stop, THINK, 

and THANK 

by Dirk Spencer 

^■vx-v'.-v-it^:?; j^^ 

Looking for a few things to be 
tokenly grateful for this 
Thanksgiving Season' Maybe 
these suggestions can help. Let's 
be thankful for boisterous 
laughter, places to dance, 
movies, and TV. Let's be thankfuJ 
for people who reinforce our 
attitudes Let's be thankful that 
we're busy. too. Thank Heavens 
for all this which aids us in 
sealing ourselves from the 
painful and distasteful 
surroundings. Oh yes, let's not 
forget to be thankful for excuses; 
without these, how could we ever 
avoid giving our real reasons for 
not being involved? 

Oh! How cynical! How un-nice! 
How . . how . . . un-Christian! 
Why is it that all college jour- 
nalists feel obligated to be so 
acidic? Can they think of nothing 
else? Or is it just "cool" to t>e 
critical? Whatever happened to 
positive, optimistic altitudes? 
Why not mention the good we 
have to be thankful for? 

Well, the good surrounds you, 
Can't you see and be thanJtful 
without reminders? Obviously 
not! Why mention the good only 
once a year so you can forget it 
again? Besides, when the usual is 

praised, such as God, countn 
life, family, friends, health, an 1 
good school, you cringe with 
embarrassment, You say, "Oh 
yuck. How sickeningly sweet, 
how conservative; how trite, 
uncool" ' 

The Thanksgiving Syndrome 
Some are offended by cynicism, 
but the traditional blessings seem 
overworked. Both are reactive to 
apathy, which, in it's turn, is 
generated by self-centeredness. 
It seem slike we are caught 
between the rock and a hard 
place. There is a solution, 
although it is not easy For thirty 
minutes each day, think of what 
you would not want to lose; 
compare the quality of your life 
with the masses, and meditate on 
the truly heavy meaning of 
Christmas and Easter Thank- 
fulness, like love, must be a 
twenty-four hour concern, not a 
one night stand. If we make it a 
daily incorporation in our lives, 
the cynics and traditionalists can 
find no fault 

And remember, thankful 
people always have sweet 
memories and usually so much 
more; the ungrateful — only 
bitter complaints. 

In Search of the People's Religion 

"Instead of taking possession of 
men's freedom, Thou didst in- 
crease it. and burdened the 
spiritual kingdom of mankind 
with its sufferings forever , , , We 
have corrected Thy work and 
have founded it upon miracle, 
myster>', and authority. And men 
rejoiced that they were again led 
like sheep, and that the terrible 
gift that had brought them such 
suffering was at last lifted from 
their hearts." 

— The Grand Inquisitor in 
Dostoyevsky's Brothers 

Hot August night in a ragged 
tent where the preacher shakes 
half the valley with a fiery ser- 
mon. What is it that attracts 
people to the revival meetings? 
Why are people turned off by an 
intellectual approach to religion'' 
What has caused the current 
interest in the occult and Eastern 

This article is an attempt to 
document the religion of the 
masses It is an attempt to 
discover what people want from 
their religion and what people 
understand religion to be It is an 
attempt to prove the spiritual 
depths of the common man 

Most Americans who even take 
the time to consider religion still 
find it in the country's traditional 
religion. Christianity, and in its 
traditional institution, the 
Church The Church is not only 
the preserver of the faith tha 

most have known from their 
childhood ; it is also the preserver 
of traditional social moves. The 
two are so intertwined that it is 
often difficult to distinguish one 
from the other. The Church offers 
both religious and social security 
— therein lies its attraction 

The Church has a pragmatic 
attitude towards life Church 
leaders recognize that religion 
must be applicable to 
theparishoner's life style. That 
religion shoudl be relevant to 
daily life is indeed good. Too 
often, however, this approach 
tends to merely seek to preserve 
the status quo. both intellectually 
and socially. 

Church leaders are cautious 
about new and innovative ideas. 
On the one hand, it might be 
dangerous to play with new ideas 
that might endanger the faith of 
the parishoner The ways that 
time has tried are deemed best. 
Intellectually, the Church 
remains static The "least 
common denominator" of in- 
telligence IS sought as the means 
of making religion most ap- 
plicable to daily life. Unfor- 
tunately, however, many who are 
seeking deeper meaning In 
religion are left thirsty. 

On another level, however, 
anti-intellectualism serves a 
different purpose Church 
leaders recognize that their 
panshoners are on a certain 
intellectual level. Religious 
deviates, with Ideas that 

challenge traditional patterns of 
belief and worship, will only 
hinder the relationship of the 
parishioner with the Church. 
Caught in a practical situation, 
ministers realize that the 
stability of the church depends 
upon having a solid foundation 
Oftentimes, ministers are am- 
bitious for a large and growing 
congregation. Antagonism, even 
if it is justified, hinders that 
growth, and is regarded ad- 
versely by leaders in the Church, 
Strict theological dogmatism, 
besides offering a false security 
for believers, aids in the 
preservation of the institution. It 
is that the Church is more con- 
cerned with the survival fo the 
institution than it is with the 
rightness or wrongness of its 

Fear of deviation is real 
enough, however, in most 
congregations Cosnervative 
churches are particularly ap- 
prehensive about "liberal" ideas. 
A minister with less than con- 
servative ideas finds himself in a 
dilemma If he attempts to break 
the hold of certain ideas on the 
Church, he is in danger of losing 
his Job Economic pressure often 
prohibits the Church from being 
relevant to the general times in 
which it exists 

Many of those who are up on 
what is going on today in the 
world find the traditional Church 
to be inadequate in meeting the 
demands of life. The Church's 

thought patterns are static and 
its social norms are out of date. 
These people find it necessary to 
seek elsewhere for religious 

One of the basic things which 
people want from religion is 
security. Sects which claim to 
have found the "one true way" 
are thriving. Astrology and the 
occult also seem to offer man a 
means of coping with reahty 
without really tackling it head on. 
Religious people, disillusioned 
with the traditional religions of 
the West, are looking more and 
more to the religions of the East. 
To others, as our society becomes 
increasingly secularizwl, it is just 
as socially acceptable for one to 
be committed to no religion. 

Dr Richard Phillips, a 
professor of philosophy and 
religion at this college, offers 
some valuable insight into the 
status of untradilional ap- 
proaches to religion He feels that 
as people begin examining the 
roots of the sects, the occult, and 
the Eastern religions, they will 
see that these approaches to 
religion are shallow and 
historically founded on shaky 

On the other hand, Dr Phillips 
also believes that as Westerners 
become more disillusioned with 
the West's materialistic orien- 
tation, they will t)ecome more 
enchanted with the philosophical 
aspects of the Easlen religions. 

by Richard Evanoff 

Indeed, the center of Western 
religious experience, especially 
among the youth, has a romantic 
strain in it, centered in its in- 
fatuation with nature and its 
disenchantment with history. 
Personal experience is idolized 
as being of prime importance. 

Traditional religion is indeed 
under attack these days by those 
who feel they are more sensitive 
to the demands of our 
technological society. The 
theologians who seem to be 
saying something relevant to the 
times are regarded with 
suspicion and distrust by the 
masses. The traditional Church, 
as an institution, often has a 
difficult time adapting that in- 
slitutioh to cultural demands. 

It is possible that the Church as 
an institution will not survive. 
The positions of the various 
untraditional sects are even more 
precarious To what shall people 
turn who are looking for more 
than just superfluous religion'' As 
William Butler Yeats has said, 
"What rought beast, its hours 
come round at last, slouches 
towards Bethlehem to be bbriT'" 

(Author's note: The author 
wishes to express his deepest 
gratitude to Dr, PhilUps. who

herein contained Except where

The Stampede November 1976 p6 


b) Mike Osborn 


The Stampede November 1976 p7 


There is something foreboding 
about the bayou countryside 
around New Orleans. There is 
something romantic about Italian 
cathedrals. There is something 
insane about kidnapping and 
death, and there is something 
compe lling about Brian 
DePalma's movie OBSESSION 
It is not juEt that DePalma has 
combined these elements in a 
workable story , he takes it 
further- DePaima takes the most 
profound, artistic aspects of each 
element and combines them in 
what may be one of the finest 
suspense stories ever filmed. 

Nothing is wasted by DePalma 
He is aware of what constitutes 
modem art: conciseness and 
clarity. When the movie is over, 
the viewer will have been en- 
tertained and satisfied That is 
the mark of excellence And at 
last, it is also the mark of sue- 
cess. Hopefully this is a sign of 
maturity, finally arrived at in 
American filmmaking and 

The credit, however, should not 
be given entirely to DePalma's 
genius. The essential element 
needed by any successful fUm 
production is also present in 
OBSESSION, good acting. There 
are three primary characters (or 
perhaps four or five if you want to 
count the dead) That simplifies 
the director's casting chore, but 
it magnified the Importance of 
making the right decisions, and 
Ihoae decialona could not have 
been more deftly made than in 
the casting of Genevieve Bujold. 
Cliff Robertson, and John 

by Pete Purvis 


The story itself is simple. 
Robertson and Bujold are Mr, 
and Mrs. Michael Courtland. he 
is a businessman who has just 
moved to New Orleans, and they 
are deeply in love. Mrs Cour- 
Uand and_ their daughter are 
kidnapped Due to 

miscalculations and bumblings 
they are killed, though the Ijodies 
are never recovered. Courtland 
(Robertson) never fully recovers 
from his grief, Accordingly, his 
business and relations with his 
partner iLithgow) are strained, 
A number of years later Cour- 
tland and his partner visit Italy, 
where Courtland first met his 
wife. There he sees, in the very 
cathedral where he met his wife, 
a girl (Bujold) who looks exactly 
like the late Mrs. Courtland 
From this point the story begins 
to unravel and intensify. To put it 
simply, the impossible appears to 
become increasingly possible 
until, finally, in the last brutal 
scenes, the mystery is un- 
derstood in its simplicity of plot 
and complexity of psychological 

Granted. OBSESSION is based 
on a contemporary theme, but 
what separates (elevates) it from 
other movies portraying 
basically the same theme is its 
pace, acting, and execution 
These qualities create effect 
(power), and effect determines 
success OBSESSION should be a 
success Ijecause il has poise and 
artistry, two of the rearest 
qualities of modern excellence.

Megavitamins; Are They For You? 

From cradle to coffin, from 
Chocks to Geritol, the American 
consumer is cajoled by mother, 
connived by advertisers, and 
counselled by physicians to take 
his vitamins. Like "Professor 
Ainsworth's Miracle Elixir", this 
20th century [>anacea has been 
promoted as a remedy for 
everything from the common 
cold to adolescent skin problems 
Perhaps the most controversial 
vitamin remedy to dissolve its 
way into the medical system in 
recent years, however, is 
Megavitamin Therapy; the 
application of large doses of 
vitamins to patients suffering 
from certain mental disorders 

Megavitamin Therpay, 
otherwise known as 

Orthomolecuiar Psychiatry, is,

Novel prize-winning chemist and 
Orthomolecuiar Psychiatry's 
most famous advocate, "the 
treatment of mental disease by 
the provision of the optimum 
molecular environment for the 
mind, especially the optimum 
concentration of substances 
normally present in the human 
body." Perhaps an accurate 
translation can best t>e effected 
by a simple, though rather un- 
scientific, analogy If the brain Is 

compared to a guppie. and the 
brain's environment is compared 
to everything in the tank but the 
guppie (and the ceramic skin 
diver), it is evident that, for the 
guppie to survive, just the right 
amount an kind of water, fish 
food, algae, oxygen, and the like, 
have to be present in the tank If 
the water is salty and not fresh, if 
there aren't enough plants to give 
oxygen, or if there isn't enough 
fish food, the guppie will not 
function as well as if these 
necessaries were present in the 
correct proportion He may even 
begin to swim upside-down. 

The brain, according to 
Orthomolecuiar Psychiatrists, 
works roughly in the same 
manner and is completely 
dependent on having the right 
amount of nutrients to function 
properly. Though not necessarily 
foods themselves, vitamins work 
together with enzymes to set off 
the chemical reactions which 
allow the body to process and use 
necessary foods If there is a 
vitamin deficiency or, if for some 
reason, the body uses up even the 
proper amount of vitamins at an 
abnormally rapid rate, creating 
its own deficiency, the chemical 
reactions will not take place, 
foods will not t>e processed, the 

body will not receive proper 
nutrition, and will malfunction. 
Evidence gathered from 
research into vitamin defidiency 
diseases like pellagra and 
scurvy, where mental disease is a 
symptom, indicates that the 
brain is more sensitive to vitamin 
deficiences than the rest of the 
tx>dy and will likely majfunction 
first On the basis of these studies 
and of other research which 
showed successful treatment of 
schizophrenics with niacin. 
Orthomolecuiar Psychiatrists 
began around 1966 to use 
Megavitamin Therpahy along 
with more conventional types of 
therapy in the treatment of 
various mental disorders. 

The therapy consists, first of 
all. of an investigation into the 
patient's background to deter- 
mine if he has received proper 
nutrition and, if so, whether there 
IS anything in his family history 
that might suggest the kind of 
inherited malfunction that could 
result in the body's abnormal use 
of vitamins It such deficiencies 
are found, the procedure is to 
give the patient very large doses 
of the lacking vitamin, WTienever 
possible, these vitamins are 
given in such a way that the body 
can nd itself of the excess. To 

return to the guppie analogy, it Is 
like dumping as much fish food as 
possible into the tank. The 
analogy, however, breakd down 
at this point because the fish tank 
IS unable to nd itself of what 
excess the fish doesn't need At 
this point, critics of Megavitamin 
Therapy argue, Orthomolecuiar 
Psychiatry also breaks down. 
Cases of vitamin overdose, 
aggravation of ulcers, and other 
harmful side effects of large 
vitamin doses have resulted from 
Megavitamin Therapy. Cntics. 
among whom stand the American 
Psychiatric Association and the 
American Medical Association, 
are also quick to point out what 
they call the inconclusive 
evidence supporting 
Orthomolecuiar Psychiatry. 
Referring to Megavitamin 
Therpay as "quackery" and 
"cookbook medicine", they take 
a very dim view of the practice 

Countering, Dr. PauLng claims 
that Orthomolecuiar Psychiatry 
has undergone extensive 
research and, that due to the 
Inexpensive and non-toxic (as 
compared with drug therapy* 
nature of the treatment, those 
doctors who refuse lo at least try 
the treatment are only hurting 

their patients. Some prac- 
ticioners have had incredible 
success with megavitamins. and 
many orthodox physicians have 
defected to the orthomolecuiar 
camp, so that Orthomolecuiar 
Psychiatrists now number 
around 800, Books promoting the 
therapy include EAT RIGHT TO 
KEEP FIT, by Adelle Davis. 
Cheraskin and Ringsdorf. 

NirramoN and your mind. 

by George Watson, and OR- 
ATRY: Treatment of 
and David. 

Megavitamin Therapy has 
catalyzed a long and difficult 
debate among psychiatrists. 
Because of the preponderance ov 
vitamin fads and cure-alls, many 
physicians are naturally, and 
advisably.skeptical On the other 
hand there is the phenomenal 
success of certain 

Orthomolecuiar Psychiatrists. 
Evidence, however, is still very 
weak on both sides and only time 
and more research can tell 
whether psychiatrists will some 
day ask their patients, "Did you 
hate your mother?" or "Did you 
take your one-a-days?"

Come Meet the BUTFS 

This past February in Nash- 
ville, the Milligan College 
roundballers calimed the first 
basketball championship in 
school history After two months 
of conditioning and practice, the 
1976-77 Basketball Buffs are 
ready to defend that VSAC title 
Coaches Phil Worrell and Dale 
Clayton, and a squad of ten 
veterans and four newcomers are 
well prepared for the season 
opener against Lee College, 
Form all indications, a successful 
and exciting basketball cam- 
paign lies ahead 

This year's team is composed 
often returning lettermen, three 
freshmen, and a junior college 
transfer The team selected 
Jerry Craycraft and Jim 
Schneider as co-captains last 

Jerry Craycraft, who is 
beginning his fourth year in the 
Orange and Black, heads the list 
of returning veterans Jerry, an 
excellent playmaker from 
Millersburg. Ohio, led last year's 
team in assists with over 7 a 
game. The 6'4" senior also 
averaged 13.5 points per game, 
for the third best average on the 
squad Jerry's ball handling 
abilities and assortment of 
dazzling passes make him a real 
crowd-pleaser Juniors C C 
Clayton, Marty Street, and Jon 
Zeltman are returning to 
MiUigan for their third years, C 
C, who comes to Milligan from 
Merritt Island, Florida, has 
excellent leaping ability The 6'3" 
Floridian is a good defensive 
player and should improve on 
last year's average of 4 4 points 
per game Marty, who starred at 
Happy Valley High, was a starter 
last year and averaged 11 6 
points and 6 rebounds a game 
Marty's speed and 

aggressiveness earned him the 
title of last year's best defensive 
player He also received AJI- 
Tournament Team honors in the 
VSAC tourney. Jon. a 6'6" for- 
ward from Strasburg, Ohio, also 
started last year Jon's 
trademark is consistency; he 
averaged lO 2 points and 6 
rebounds a game last year. Jon's 
ability as an excellent shooter 
allows him to score from both the 
field and the fou] line 
Six players return this year for 

their second season in the Orange 
and Black Jon "Scoop" Arvin, a 
6'6" sophomore from Crawford" 
sville, Indiana, didn't see much 
playing time last year, but he 
responded well lo his role. 
Besides being a hard worker. 
"Scoop" excells as a fine 
defensive player and an excellent 
rebounder Reggie "Nap" 
Holland was a vital cog in last 
year's Buffalo Basketball 
Machine. Besides pulhng down 
6 8 rebounds a game, the 6'6" 
Tampa native connected on 56 8 
percent of his field goal attempts 
Nap is an excellent leaper and 
rebounder William "Lew" 
Lewis, a 6'2" wing man from New 
York City, is a good shooter and 
tireless ball player Lew's ex- 
ceptional speed makes him a 
tough defensive player and a 
valuable fast break threat Lewis 
will play an important part in the 
Buffs' plans this year Jim 
Schneider, a 6'8" senior post men 

from Northhampton, Penn- 
sylvania, and invaluable addition 
lo Milligan's roundball program 
sat out the first semester last 
year due to transfer regulations 
When cleared to play. Jim 
collected 10,7 rebounds and .3.6 
points per game during the 
second half of the year In the 
VSAC tourney. Jim was named to 
the All -Tournament team for 
averaging 22,2 points and 12,5 
rebounds a game Needless to 
say, much of the Buffs' success 
this year will hing on the per- 
formance of their big co-captin. 
Richard "Slick" Solomon, a 6'0" 
senior wing man. perlormed well 
whenever he was called upon last 
year Besides being a deadly 
outside shooter. Slick is a good 
defensive player, too Robert 
Taylor, who sat out last season 
after averaging 15,7 points and 
6,3 retwunds a game during the 
1974-75 campaign, returns this 
year The 6'5" wing man from 

Columbus, Uhio ib an outstanding 
shooter and driver who possesses 
exceptional moves, Robert is also 
a fine rebounder and a good 
defensive player. Taylor's ability 
to make the big play will surely 
thrill alt Buff fans 

'sOur newcomers to Milligan's 
program round out the 1976-77 
squad. Keith Huckstep. a 6'9" 
freshman post man from 
Charlottesville. Virginia, is 
looked to as a valuable man for 
future Buff squads Although he 
probably won't see too much 
playing time this year, Keith can 
be counted on for strong 
retwunding and good shooting 
whenever he plays. Gerald 
Randolph, another freshman 
from Charlottesville, isa 6'6" win 
gman who^possesses spectacular 
leaping ability. Gerald has good 
offensive moves and his jumping 
abihty enables him to display the 
't)est slam dunk on the team 
Howard Randolph, who teamed 

Spike City 


with his brother, Gerald, and 
Keith at Charlottesville High 
School, is an excellent 6'5" fresh- 
man ball player, a good shooter, 
the team's best shot blocker, and 
will add much strength to the 
Buffs' inside attack Incidentally, 
Howard led the Buffs in 
rebounding during preseason 
scrimmages Mike Shepherd, a 
5'9 ' point guard from Carrollton, 
Kentucky, transferred lo 
Milligan from Martin Junior 
College, Mike, Martin Junior 
College's MVP, made first teal 
all-conference and first team all- 
district. Shepherd is an excellent 
ball handler and a fine defensive 
player in addition to being a good 
shooter. All four newcomers will 
add depth to a talented Buff 
basketball squad 

Head Coach Phil Worrell and 
Assistant Coach Dale Clayton 
will once again lead the 
Basketball Buffs. Coach Clayton, 
who works with the big men 
developing a strong rebounding 
and inside offensive game, is 
beginning his fourtyh year as 
Assostant Coach, Coach Worrell, 
who has compiled a 131-84 record 
in his 7-year stint at Milligan. was 
named VSAC Eastern Division 
Coach of the Year last season. 
Worrell, optimisitc about the 
Buffs' chances this year, em- 
phasizes that "to achieve a 
championship calibre team 
requires maximum effort in 
every game, and I believe we 
have the ability to do well this 
year if we can play up lo our 

Several events will highlight 
this year's schedule The 
Milligan College + Elizabethton 
Lions Tip-Off Tournament on 
November 19-20 has become one 
of the finest small college tour- 
neys anywhere. Following the 
tournament, the Buffs will head 
for Florida on a 3-game trip over 
Thanksgiving break After 
Christmas, the Buffs will travel 
to North Carolina to participate 
in Gardner-Webb's holiday 
tournament. Then, after the 
conference battles of January 
and February, the VSAC tour- 
namen twill be held in late 
February, It will be an exciting 
year for the MiUigan basket- 
bailers Let's get behind the Buffs 
and join a winnine combination. 

Having lost only two starters 
from last year's team, the 
women's volleyball team is off to 
a good start The main thrust of 
this year's team has been tour- 
nament competition with other 
matches added to give balance to 
the schedule. 

This year's starting team 
consists of Debbie Seink (Sr.), 
Kim Peters (Sr,). Melody 
Neumeister (Jr ). Diane Vernon 
(jr,f. Marcia Fraser iJr ), and 
Freshmen Tammie Lanzer and 
Kim Deaton, The back-up in- 
cludes Minta Berry. Sue Hanson, 
Judy Brunner. Sue Whittmer and 
Maria Wesner, Debbie Swink 

serves as captain of the team 

In season play the Lady Buffs 
hold a 9-6 record Top server for 
the team is Debbie Swink, with

Flu Shot Still Available 

Adios, Amigo 

Swine flu has the potential of 
reaching epidemic proportions 
this year There have been no 
major outbreaks of the disease in 
the past 45 years, so most 
people do not have adequatt? 
natural protection against it. 

The swine flu can cause fever, 
chills, headache, dry cough, and 
muscle aches- It may last 
anywhere from several days to a 
week or more. Even though a 
complete recovery is usual, there 
may be complications which can 
lead to serious illness or death in 
some people. The swine flu can be 
especially serious for the elderly 
or those with heart, lung, or 
kidney diseases, Therefore, a 

special swine flu vaccine has 
been prepared and fully tested 
which should protect most people 
who receive it. The seriousness of 
the swine flu can be seen m the 
fact that the federal government 
IS spending millions of dollars lo 
make this vaccination available 
throughout the nation 

Approximately 350 Milligan 
students and staff have received 
the vaccination in Dr Smedley's 
office The vaccination is free of 
charge, virtually painless, and so 
■farno serious effects or reactions 
have been reported from any of 
thesludents. The vaccination will 
not give you the flu because it has 

been made from killed viruses 
Minor side effects such as 
soreness or fever may affect 
some people, but for most there 
aie no side effects. However, 
anyone who -is allergic to eggs, 
has a fever, or has had another 
type of vaccine in the last M days 
should consult Dr Smedley 
before taking the vaccine The 
vaccine is still available free of 
charge in Dr Smedley's office 
and everyone is encouraged to 
receive the vaccination as soon 
as possible so that the body will 
have time to build up the 
necessary resistance to prevent 
swine flu

During his slay, Eric will also 
be doing work for Milligan's 
World Studies Institute under the 
direction of Dr Charles Taber, 
Eric will be involved with a study 
of the history, culture, and

It's hard to 
remember we ever

first place. 

But there is a 
choice. Having a

an important decision. 
Probably the most 
important decision 
we'll ever make. 

And once it's 
made, it can never 
be undone. 

By the time 
we're old enough to

Mr. Eugene 
Director Of 

H. Wiggington 

by Dirk Spencer 

"Out of the west, with a Carter 
smile, and a hearty Ha-Ha-Ha. 
the D.O.D, rides again!" The 
D D (which being interpreted 
is. Director of Development) is 
Mr Eugene Wigginton If. in the 
past five years, you have read a 
Milligan publication, been con- 
tacted as a prospective student, 
or entertained Milligan personnel 
at your church, you have been af- 
fected by this man's work 
However, when asked. "What do 
you think of Mr Eugene Wiggin- 
ton^". many students respond 
with, "Whaf" "Who?" But from 
those who know him better, we 

"The shine from his head hurts 
my eyes" or 

"I know he's looking forward to 
heaven, because there's no par- 
tmg there." 

Seriously now. we would like to 
aquaint you more fully with this 
man and his team Many of you 
have probably wondered from 
time to time just how this in- 
stitution is run. Under Dr John- 
son's administration, school 
authority was delegated to four 
areas: Academic affairs. 
Student life; Business; and 
Development, Five years ago Mr. 
Wigginton was contracted to 
head the Dept, of Development, 
This area covers our programs of 
Alumni activities. Com- 
munications. Church relations 
and Student enlistment. 

Who provides ideals for, writes 
and publisfces all the professional 
publications for Milligan? Who 
scours "the countryside for new 
students and supporters for 
Milligan? Who supplies churches 
around the country with the 
special services they often 
requtst" The Dept of Develop- 
ment Isay the "department" for 

a reason. Although Mr Wiggin- 
ton is a good leader and in mat- 
ters of area policy, the final ar- 
bitrator, he incessantly reminds 
us thai we are all "fello-A" 
workers. He eagerly seeks out 
other's attitudes, aid and 
thoughts; very conscious ol his 
own limitations without these. 

Despite his suave, cool, 
assured exterior, Mr. W is quite a 
hustler, in the good sense. He has 
had two successful "first" 
ministries at South Jefferson 
Church in Louisville. KY. and 
Westside Church in East Point, 
Ga He has been the Director of 
Public Relations at CBS in Cinci., 
OH. He still has his wife. Shirley, 
and two daughters. Tressa and 
Denise, He was instrumental in 
establishing our married student 
housing I blame the carpet on 
him) He is also helping to co- 
ordinate the refurbishment of 
Derthick Hall. And for the 
students, as well as the rest of 
Milligan, our good Directior is 
constantly seeking ways to 
broaden Milligan's base of sup- 
port. Which means that the more 
others subsidize the school, the 
less we pay. 

Of Milligan. Mr, Wigginton 
says. "My appreciation for this 
school has magnified since 
coming here. My only regret is 
that I haven't more time to spend 
with the students" Speaking of 
students, they have more to say

How We Oppress The Poor 

The STAMPEDE December 1976 page 3 

When asked to write an article 
discussing poverty, the Editor, 
John Ray. said: "Who would be 
more qualified than you to 
discuss poverty?*' Actually, if we 
look at poverty in its essence, we 
find that poverty in most cases is 
accompanied by oppression. 
When poverty is maintained by 
oppression, then I, who have 
enough to eat, clothes to wear, op- 
portunities of education and the 
freedom to speak, approach such 
a topic with great caution 

Dr. Ronald J, Sider, in a recent 
conference at Emmanuel School 
or Religion, shocked most of his 
audience to the reality that God, 
because of his demand for 
justice, is on the side of the poor, 
For example, in Exodus. 3, we 
find that when the Israelites were 
under severe oppression_ Egypt, 
God freed his oppressed people 
True, God had his covenant to 
keep . but when God's people, 
themselves, became oppressive, 
they, too, were punished. Even 
the cries of the prophets, 
especially those of Amos and 
Jeremiah, had no effect on God's 
people to change from their 
economically oppressive ways. 
The Northern Kingdom was 
destroyed forever in 722 B C . and 
later Jerusalem was devastate4 
Dr. Sider further explained that 
although "God exalts" the poor, 
as exemplified by the story of 
Lazarus, never does God say that 
he loves the poor more than the 
rich, God is not partial; rather, 
he is concerned for justice As we 
look further into tiie concern of 
God for people we see that Christ 
came as a liberator. In Christ 
•here are no race or class distinc- 
tions; in the fullness of Christ, 
mankind is one-the created, 
reconciled to the Creator 

Indeed, there are in reality 
millions who are starving It 
seems almost unreal to us that 
people in Honduras live on some 
$30 a year and yet our big 
businesses are largely respon- 
sible, Dr Sider, in an article 
which appeared in Christianity 
Today (July 16. 1976}, revealed 
some interesting figues. In Mar- 
ch of 1974, "several banana- 
producing countires m Central 
America" decided to charge $1 00 
tax on every case of bananas 
because the price of bananas had 
not t>een raised in twenty years. 
Because 90 percent of the 
"marketing and distribution of 
bananas" is owned by three 
major companies, they forced the 
Central American counties into 
subjection by methods of bribes 
or, as in the case of Honduras, 
allowing some 145.000 crates of 
bananas to rot on their docks. 
When half of a country's export 
depends upon the export of 
bananas, such pressure is 
economical murder "Costa ftica 
finally settled for $.25 a crate, 
and Panama, for S 35 Honuras, 
thanks to a large bribe, even- 
taully agreed to a S 30 tax," II is 
no wonder, then, that bananas 
which come from South America 
are cheaper than apples we raise 
ourselves Over and over again 
we. as a nation, benefit through 
economic and political op- 
I was literally stunned as I read 

how our big businesses, largely 
International Telephone and 
Telegraph. Anaconda, and Ken- 
necott. along with the United 
States government, all but pulled 
the trigger killing Chile's last 
democratically elected president 
(The Other Side, March-April, 
1976), When Allende Gossens 
became the new president of 
Chile in 1970, his "specialistic" 
tendencies posed a threat to the 
few families and multinational 
corporations that controlled the 
Chilean economy. Although 
Allende was committed to the 
task of giving the property "back 
to the people." he worked solely 
"within the confines of the con- 
sitiution" Before Allende's elec- 
tion in 1970. US AID TO THE 
Chilean government was about $1 
million a month and aid to the ar- 
med forces of Chile was less than 
Si million per year In answer to 
a request from the big businesses 
and under the direct influence of 
Richard Nixon, by 1973, all aid to 
the Chilean government was cut 
off completely and military aid 
was increased to $12 million a 
year "The CIA undertook a $8 
million campaign to bring about 
Allende's overthrow," and the 
military leftist, force eventually 
gained power September 11. 1973. 
Tragically, the New York Times 
estimates that the regime we 
helped instate has killed between 
4 to 18 thousand people "Many of 
those killed or imprisoned also 
underwent simulated execution, 
nude beatings, electrical shock of 
the genitals, forced eating of ex- 
crement, prolonged solitary con- 
finement, and other ingenious 
forms of humiliation," 
Economically, too, the price has 
been heavy; wages have been 
frozen but not prices, A writer for 
the National Review visited Chile 
some ten months after the coup 
and discovered thai "about half 
the population was then living at 
subsistence level or below, 'in 
grinding, half-starved poverty,' 
'It sickened the soul.' he said " 
Such is the bitter reality or op- 
pression, No. it is not just the 
United Stales that is involved in 
such oppression but we must face 
the inhumanity with which our 
nation has been stained As 
Christians, we must be aware 
that poverty and oppression 
exists and we cannot shelter our- , 
selves from cruel realities 
Rather, we must ever t>e sear- 
ching for ways in which we can do 
our part to alleviate human suf- 

As the son of a missionary, I 
have had the opportunity to travel 
our awesome country from shore 
to shore and 1 have been in a 
great variety of different chur- 
ches Over and over again I have 
observed how we, as Christians, 
claim that the Gospel is for all 
men yet, consistently, we deny 
this by our actions. It is easy to 
love those who, as Dr Scott Bart- 
chy describes, "walk like, talk 
like, and smell like us " One of 
the tremendous features in the 
life of Jesus was his great com- 
passion for man He loved the 
unlovely Many times. Christians 
lend to use money as a "cop out ' ' 
Many are willing to financially 
support various missions, or- 

phanages, famine reliefs and 
even chip in a little extra once a 
year for a Christmas basket. This 
giving of one's finances is good 
and of great necessity, but this is 
not the extent of our Christian 
commitment to the world The 
gift of money by itself, allows the 
giver to remain in an in- 
dividualistic and anti-personal 
cacoon which is impenetrable 
Christ met the needs of people, 
whether spiritual, by teaching, or 
physical, by feeding or healing, 
on a personal basis He gave to 
man his time, his love and his 
ver>' life. So we. too, must dare to 
give of our time and ourselves. 
through our efforts and our 
prayers, to all who are around us 
Probably one of the most in- 
volved persons in our area is Mrs, 
Scott Bartchy. a counselor at 
Liberty Bell Junior High School 
In her counseling capacity, Mrs 
Bartchy has seen firsthand the 
tremendous need in this com 
munity As Mrs Bartchy listed, 
kids in this area need a) "one- 
to-one attendtion, bJ tutoring in 
school subjects during the school 
day. c) companionship and help 
in off-school hours, d) and jeans, 
underwear, socks, jackets, hats, 
gloves, alt toilet articles such as 
shampoo, soap, deodorant, etc. 
as well as sports equipment" 
Recently, interested people from 
Johnson City, Kingsport, Bristol 
and Elizabethton met to discuss 
the setting up of a Big Brother, 
Big Sister program for this area. 
Only Johnson City has made no 
progress in this direction and the 
one-to-one basic of friendship, 
concern and love lacking in our 
community. In Mrs Barthcy's 
own words. "There is so much 

blindness, apathy, complacency 
on the part of the community. 
Few people are willing to risk 
themselves. We have two studen- 
ts who are involved with families 
who are their 'aduJt-friends.' but 
I have talked to several hundred 
people about the idea and-no in- 
terest!" When confronted with 
the possibility of church ac- 
tivities for these. Mrs Bart- 
chy explained that many have 
secret fears of rejection because 
they don't live in the right areas 
of town or cannot afford the 
proper clothes. Liberty Bell Lear- 
ning Center has a Volunteer 
Tutor program that is open to the 
public A number of E T,S.U and 
a few Milligan students are in- 
volved in this program Ac- 
cording to Mrs. Bartchy, "Liber- 
ty Bell is the only school in town 
with an active volunteer 
program All the schools could 
use one but so far only Liberty Bell 
has taken both the initiative and 
time to set up the program and 
campaign for volunteers This 
program is one of the best ways 
that college students can get to 
know and relate to Johnson City 
kids as well as really keep them 
with the one-to-one which is so 
rare in these kids' lives Seeds 
can be planted at the junior high 
age that might reap fantastic 
benefits in the future The 
possibilities are endless and 
really exciting if people would get 
off their duffs" We cannot fool 
ourselves by saying that, because 
we are students, we are in- 
capable of doing anything. We 
can do something We can get in- 
volved Out of the four areas of 
need listed by Mrs Bartchy. I'm 
sure that every person on this 

by Greg Johnson 

campus is capable of con- 
tributing in at least one of those 
areas There are many op- 
portunities right here in Johnson 
City for Christian service. Mrs, 
Bartchy would be more than hap- 
py to help anyone desiring to ser- 
ve find an area in which their 
talents and attributes may be 
most effectively used. Mrs. Bart- 
chy may be reached throughout 
school days at Constitutional Hall 
'928-7158). or after school hours 
at her home (929-0623. 

As Christians, it is essential 
that we dare to reach out, not 
only with more of our finances, 
but with more of our time and 
more of ourselves The will of 
God is certainly evident 
throughout the scriptures and it 
is obvious that the world and our 
very own community needs us. 
Do we dare to give some of our 
jackets and extra clothes to 
someone who is cold*' Do we dare 
to give some a little extra toward 
world famine"* Do we dare give 
up some our precious free lime to 
share our lives with someone in 
need in our own community^ As 
we attempt to answer these 
questions may we always 
remember that Christ did

A Political Speculation 

■ hu Haul. I 

I have never been an easy 
loser And when it comes to 
politics the hurt is worse and of- 
ten lasts longer fsometimes as 
" long as four years) The photo- 
finish of November 2 was a 
tribute to one of the closest and 
nr.ost interesting campaigns of 
our time, my candidate lost and 
yet I am left with a good taste in 
my mouth — it may not be peanut 
butter, but just the same it's not a 
bad taste Change is healthy; I 
hope and pray that this change is 
truly pertinent to that complex of 
social, economic, and political 
variables which have constituted 
the issues of Campgian '76 

Soon we shall bid farewell to 
Gerald Ford, There can be no 
mistake that the man labeled dull 
and colorless by many will step 
from the executive office to be 
one of the most respected men of 
his time The nation will remem- 
ber those lowly days following 
Watergate; the hard loss of faith 
in the Presidency, the ugly self- 
righteousness of press and 
public, the lingering fear of guilt 
by association, the remnants of 
bitterness toward a fallen 
president — if nothing else. 
Gerald Ford brought calmness, 
stability, and honesty to a tor- 
mented government Perhaps no 
president in history has treated 
the office with such equanimity 

There are no Vietnams or 
Watergates upon us as Jimmy 
Carter moves into Washington, 
but, just the same, our President- 
elect is taking over in a relatively 
difficult time. In this bicentennial 
year, the question of America's 
destiny has come to light; people 
want a president with vision The 
recent conservatism in the public 
mood is really a manifestation of 
the will to establish a prominent 
identity for the future In order to 
be a successful president, Jimmy 
Carter will have to project some 
definitive ideals, and that is not 
so easy, especially in this com- 
plicated age 

Already, political circles are 
buzzing in anticipation of this up- 
per-middle-class farmer-busines- 
sman who will shortly bring his 
"New Look" to the Presidency, 
but analysts are having difficulty 
assessing Carter because frankly 
he is just so neuv But this 
freshness of face is perhaps the 
greatest asset enhancing the new 
Carter Presidency, coupled with 
Carter's apparent keenness in ab- 

sorbing the numberous facts and 
operations of federal politics to 
which he has never before been 
exposed. There are many 
question marks, however Many 
are concerned about Carter's in- 
ner circle of confidantes — 
Powell, Kirbo, Jordan. Watson — 
and their trustworthiness and ac- 
cessibility to power 
Congressmen are anxious about 
Carter, and how smoothly he will 
work with them, his anti- 
Washington, "anti-politics" cam 
paign left many on Capitol Hill 
skeptical Carter's populist 
facade and his atmut-face to 
special interest groups have 
alienated others. As well, his 
vagueness must t>e replaced by 
greater substance and clarity 
With a load of past promises 
awaiting him at his doorstep, he 
will surely awaken to the realities 
of being Chief Executive Yet 1 
feel most Americans are willing 
to give Jimmy Carter the benefit 
of the doubt, for behind his warm, 
winsome personage there seems 
to be a character of confidence 
and good intenb'on, Moreover. 
Carter is close enough to the mid- 
dle to hold his own with con- 
servatives as well as liberals, 

A big question which this elec- 
tion has brought up regards the 
destiny of the Democratic and 
Republican Parties, and the ex 
tent to which each must change to 
meet future needs. 

Carter's victory has worried 
many conservatives who fear a 
gross imbalance imposed by a 
Democratic Presidency paired 
with a Democratic -con trolled 
Congress Moreover, they fear 
Carter's reunification of FDR's 
old coalition of conservative 
Southern Democrats and labor- 
oriented Northern liberals. In- 
deed, the Democratic Party most 
likely is set up for possibly eight 
more years in the driver's seat 
The Democrats have a seemingly 
inexhaustable corps of fresh, 
dynamic young political aspiran- 
ts They are inevitably going to 
remain comfortable as the 
majority party for a long, long, 
long time And yet many political 
experits, notably pollster Louis 
Hams, predict that this 
Democratic coalition will not last 
long, there are loo many 
variables. At any rate, the con 
tinued swell of Democratic power 
will ultimately increase the par- 
ty's susceptibility to division

Since the election, the GOP has 
taken on a sort of "whipped-dog" 
attitude, yet this dog still has 
teeth of its own Ford's narrow 
defeat has intensified what was a 
major concern to Republicans 
long before the election- whether 
the party should augment its 
moderate side or shift farther to 
the right; the fight betueen Ford 
and Reagan was a cjear-cut in- 
dication of possible future strife 
between GOP moderates and 
hard-line conservatives. 
Basically, the moderates are con- 
tending that in order for the 
Republicans to survive as a 
viable and appealing national 
party, they are going to have to 
be more responsive and in- 
novative on issues of social 
programs and legislation; the 
parly must offer outright alter- 
natives to the proposals of 
Democratic progressives — this 
might sound too liberal to 
Reaganites but there are a host of 
bright new victorious Republican 
moderates heralding this cause: 
governor-elect James Thompson 
of Illinois, and Sena tors -elect 
Harrison Schmitt iNew Mexico), 
Richard Lugar ilndiana). John 
Heinz I Pennsylvania ) . John Dan- 
forth (Missouri), plus the old 
moderate regulars like Percy. 
Hatfield. Mathias. and others. 
Party right-wingers seem to still 
be enchanged with the com- 
petitive Ronald Reagan, and 
some say that it will be the staun- 
ch conservatives who will have 
the omnipotent hand in selecting 
the 1980 GOP candidate. 
Realistically speaking, a tough 
conservative will probably not 
have a chance in '80, and ex- 
cluding a possible third party 
splinter, Republicans will likely 
go for a compromise candidate 
like John Connally or Howard 
Baker It's too soon to speculate 

If Jimmy Carter is even 
moderately successful, you can 
probably expect that his ad- 
ministration will succeed itself in 
1980, and Democrats may hover 
around the slogan "Peanuts are 
Forever " The Republicans, on 
the other hand, will have to in- 
crease their youth and vigor, and 
hope that Carter stumbles so they 
may unite behind a slogan "Our 
Pains and Strains Came Mainly 
From Plains." We'll just have to 
wait and see.

The Revolution Lost 

Today's government differs 
from the government of 200 years 
ago, to the extent that it is 
becoming a hindrance to both the 
economy and the production of 
goods and services 

One businessman summed the 
situation up when he said, "It's 
almost impossible to keep up with 
all the government standards, 
especially the hundreds and 
hundreds of O.S.H A rules" 

OS HA , the Occupational 
Safety and Health 

Administration, is one of coun- 
tless federal agencies which, in 
an attempt to protect the 
American citizen, has gained so 
much power that it often alters 
the jote and every day Uves of the 
American population. 

The majority of Americans feel 
that government has become too 
large and powerful 

In the last 15 years, 236 new 
federal agencies, boards, and 
departments have appeared, 
while only 21 have been 

Govemment has become too 
large. The bureaucracy which 
runs it has become so preoc- 
cupied with the propogation of 
regulations that it has reduced 

Dear Friends, 

This semester has had for me 
many strange and wonderful 
feelings, and next semester will 
be even more exiciting. but. 
because of not returning next 
semester, I have had those 
feelings to which I usually sur- 
come around May These feelings 
are caught up in the parting of 
those friends that I have had for 
the three years that 1 have been 
Ijiere, Fri^r^^.^e important, for 

me they supply the need for 
sharing and fellowship that are 
important in my life But when 
these friends are also ties with 
you by the love of Christ, they 
become even more valued and 
cherished In this letter I want to 
express my love and concern to 
my senior fnends whom I might

the total production of goods and 
services in some businesses. One 
mine owner said, "Our safety 
record is worse now than it was 
before all the new standards." A 
businessman commented, "New 
rules have cut production by at 
least 25 per cent and have added 
tremendously to costs," 

There is a wave of reform 
sweeping the country Murray L. 
Weidenbaum. Director of the 
Center for the Study of American 
Business, Washington Univer- 
sity, said. "I think for the first 
time in modem history, the 
notion of regulatory reform has a 
real head of steam." The Percy- 
Byrd bill, for example, would 
require the President and 
Congress to review every 
regulatory agency every five 
years. The Fannin bill would 
require every agency to show- 
that any proposed regulation 
would benefit the economy rather 
than hurt it. 

So there is hope for the 
revocation of bureaucracy in 
American government. Through 
legal reforms, our government 
can once again start serving the 
people, instead of making ser- 
vants of those it is supposed to 

most of all I pray that you will 
grow in the understanding and 
love of the Lord Jesus Christ. I 
w-ill think of many of you and 
thank the Lord for the small 
time we have been able to learn 
from each other, and share our 
lives, God bless always! 

Yours in Christian Love.

Indoor Hail 

For a long time I thought it was 
caused by indigest ion or 
frustration over the food. Then I 
thought maybe having to fill out 
three different surveys a meal 
drove people to it Finally I was 
certain I had discovered the an- 
swer. It was caused by the ab- 
normal anxiety aroused upon fin- 
ding that the side door to the Sut- 
ton lobby (viz, cafeteria en- 
trance) is lockedseven out of 
every nine meals, for no apparent 
reason However, I have since 
come to the conclusion that none 
of these explanations are correct, 
In other words, 1 cannot find a 
single rational reason why 
college students should want to 
throw, spit, or otherwise propell 
ice cubes at one another 

Granted, it has the potential of 
becoming an exciting spectator 
sport, I mean after all, at least 
500 people show up every night 
here at Milligan to be beaned and 
'l watched others be beaned by a 
variety of barrages Why just last 
nighl I saw an mteresting in- 
novation Someone threw six ice 
cubes at once! They all landed on 
and about an empty table (nice 

But, nevei fear, at least once in 
any 20 minute span of the evening 
meal you will see someone whip 
an ice cube across the cafeteria 
at random. The whole table will 
then laugh with the thrower when 
the cut>e hits someone the back of 
the head. The victim will then 
either (a) throw a cube back at 
his attacker, or (bi throw a cube 
at someone who he thinks was his 
attacker Needless to say, the 
escalation and excitement from 

this point is incredible Gosh 
what alot of fun' Everybody is 
soon laughing and throwing and 
throwing and laughing and 
laughing and, etc And then 
someone gets hig to hard or 
someone gets ganged up on And 
from that point, the ice cube 
escalator begins degenerating 
from penthouse fun to basement 
hostility Smiles are replaced by 
gritting teeth, jester's caps are 
.. exchanged foj helmets, and the 
heavy artillery is brought out. 
And, as in all wars, the innocent 
are soon also the victims In some 
instances it t>ecomes comparable 
to eating in a hailstorm. Worst of 
all. there is no protection for the 
peaceful diner (other than 
perhaps un umbrella) from the 
barborous battle between the 
members of the society of semi- 

Po not misunderstand my 
meaning. This is a serious 
problem which could have 
serious consequences It goes 
beyond the fact that throwing ice 
cubes is childish, senseless, and 
discourteous Someone sometime 
is going to be seriously hurt by 
this "fun". And then someone 
will write an article in the Stam- 
pede chastizing the offenders and 
deploring their offense But then 
it will be to late. 

Consider the benefits you 
receive from throwing ice cubes. 
If you just have to do it to get your 
thrills, well, you have the choice. 
Personally, I think flying a kite is 
a better alternative It stays in 
the air longer and requires less 
physical effort, ' But then, it 
probably won't irritate or hurt 
anyone either.

Past Clubs: Better Than Present? 

Survey Of Personal Maladjustment 

Looking through the history of 
Milligan College has resulted in 
many discoveries about campus 
life One of the most interesting 
aspects is the clubs and 
organizations that have at one 
time or the other functioned at 
Milligan College. Some are 
amusing and some serious; but 
all have served their various 
purposes. Going back to 1915 
proves humorous, for in that year 
the "Midnight Club" was formed. 
It's sole purpose was "to create 
all the disturbance possible; 
break all rules, annoy all 
professors; keep everybody 
awake from midnight on, and 
raise*- generally," It existed for 
several years and was composed 
of guys, of course! Also in that 
year the "PS.S.' Club" was 
popular, holding the motto of "do 
others before they do you." The 
letters represented-Pokey. 
Shakey. Savvy, and Pete. It 
functioned for only one year, due 
to obvious reasons 

1917 saw the development of the 
interesting "Cross Sextette 
Club." 11 was organized by those 
who deemed it necessary to 
protect their voice and l)odily 
health by the use of proper foods. 
After long experimenting they 
concluded that hot chocolate and 
candy were the most beneficial. 

Their official club flower was the 
milkweed That same year the 
"Racket Raisers' Tennis Qub" 
was formed with the motto, 
"never fuss, but raise a racket " 

The "Chafing Dish Club" 
performed in 1916 with the motto, 
"eat all you can." Amazingly all 
the members looked relatively 
thin in their picture, so maybe 
they wren't getting much to eat 
The "BBPFTC" (meaning 
unknown) Club also was active in 
1916 with the motto, get this - "get 
all you can and can all you get," 
Their purpose was to keep 
abreast of the time and to meet 
the demand of the hour After 
these years the clubs tended to 
become more serious-minded, 
perhaps fortunately or the 

"The Masque" was ormed in 
1929 for those intere- .ed in the 
dramatic arts Mem ers had to 
have participated ir at least one 
major or three min* .■ plays "The 
Expression Depa onent" func- 
tioned to help stu' ents to acquire 
and cultivate th* gifts of tongues 
(public speak ngthat is) A 
"Piano Club" *as also popular 
for the musiv-minded students. 

In 1942 the "Relations Gub" 
was formed to study the un- 
derlying principles of in- 

by Charlene Britt 

ternational conduct for a 
peaceful civilization The well- 
known "Buffalo Ramblers" was 
developed in 1949 with the motto. 
"A hike in the country every now 
and then does us all good" 1950 
saw the formation of the "Hobby 
Club" with the purpose of ac- 
complishing skills such as 
photography, woodworking, etc. 
that wouJd improve the use of 
leisure time "Variety Voices" 
t>egan in 1956 to promote a better 
school spirit in every phase of the 
school life, especially in the field 
of sports The "Zelotai Club" 
became popular that year also, 
and was composed of the wives of 
both students and faculty in the 
religion department The "Radio 
Club" debuted in 19S7 for the 
purpose of arousing interest in 
radio work as a hobby 1966 
witnessed a political twist, with 
the formation of the "Young 
Democrat Club" and also the 
"Young Republican Club " Both 
were to further political interest 
on campus 
Milligan has been blessed with 
many clubs and organizations, 
and some sound like they would 
have been excitingland maybe 
risky'' I But the students have 
been involved and they continue 
to be, and that's greati

One Man's 

by Doug Cutler 

Friday, November 12th, "The 
Further Adventures of Walter 
Mitty" was presented in Seeger 
Chapel The date was good The 
audience was good. The basic 
idea was good. Unfortunately, the 
play itself was not good. 

James Thurber created Walter 
Mitty ■ a henpecked, middleaged, 
middieclass man who used his ex- 
traordinary imagination as a 
means of escape from his mun- 
dane life, This situation was 
reversed however when I 
realized that I was usmg my 
imagination to relieve myself 
from the endless scenes of th" 

The ■ "Purther Adventures" 
began with Walter as an actor . a 
secret agent and as a minister 
Then, in what became the insipid 
minute, Walter gave his own 
"Bicentennial Minute." (In- 
cidentally, it was longer than a 
minute) Walter then became 
Johnny Carson, the captain of a 
mutinous ship, and a member of 
the famous starship Enterprise. 
The show finally ended with 
"Walter and the Unicom" and 
"Shop Around " 

Jon Arvm portrayed Waller 
Gladys Miity was played by Lyn 
Cain. 3eth Shannon, as Melissa 
Milty, and Debbie Colina as a gif- 
ted child, emerged as the best ac- 
tresses in the show, Un- 
fortunately, the monotony of the 
script marred the performances 
of the cast. 

The only redemptive aspect of 
the show was the music Music 
director Lynn Schmidt deser\-fs 
recognition. Had it not been for 
the occasional vocal numbers, I 
fear that I would have slept 
rather than endured the scenes. 

Since monotony, trite humor, 
and interminable scenes appear 
to be characteristic of variety 
shows, one may truthfully assess 
them as passe'

Oaklands Mansion 

Often students have a hard 
time trying to decide what to do 
on weekends. This problem can 
be solved by checking out the 
places of interest around the 
area, The state of Tennessee is 
covered with historical sites 
which can prove to be fun and 
educational. One such spot is 
the Oaklands Antebellum 
Mansion on North Maney 
Avenue in Murfreesboro, which 
is 30 miles from Nashville. 
Attractions there include the 
mansion, medical museum, an 
everlasting spring, a 19th 
century garden and a bird 
sanctuary The architecture of 
the mansion is one of the finest 
examples of the Romanesque 
Revival in the area 

The Oakland Mansion was 
built in 1786 by Ezekial White on 
the land he received in 
recognition of his Revolutionary 
War service. Later the property 
was passed down to Dr. James 
Maney, one of the first prac- 
ticing doctors in Murfreesboro. 
The Maney family held the land 
for 86 years and the mansion 
survived the decades of 
prosperity in the Old South and 

the turmoil of the Civil War. 
During the War it was host to 
such figures as Jefferson Davis. 
General George W C, Lee (son 
of Robert E. Lee), and Leonidas 
Polk, the bishop-soldier. In 
March 1862 Colonel William 
Duffield and his men of the 9lh 
Michigan Regiment occupied 
the plantation grounds as their 
headquarters. Later Con- 
federate Calvaryman Nathan 
Bedford Focrest received the 
surrender from Duffield in a 
room at Oakland 

The Medical Museum on the 
grounds contains a small 
collection of medical artifacts 
which are interesting All the 
furnishings in the mansion are 
authenic from the years prior to 
1865 and represent Sherealon. 
Empire. Victorian, and other 
early styles. 

The Oaklands Antebellum 
Mansion is open Tuesdays 
through Saturdays from 10:00 
am till 4:30 p.m. and Sunday's 
from 1:00 p.m till 4:30 pm 
Admission is only one dollar and 
could make an afternoon in 
Murfreesboro quite enjoyable 



A Course You'll Like 

Milligan College offers a 
variety of good courses taught by 
fantastic teachers; however, of 
these courses, one which stands 
out above the rest as beneficial to 
everyone is Personal Health, 
taught by Mrs. Rowena Bowers. 
The course is taught from a 
psychological rather than a 
physical view and is geared 
toward the college student who is 
beginning to take on new freedom 
and responsibility. The text used 
in the course is. HEALTH AND 
Frank S. Ralhbone. Jr. and 
Estelle T, Rathbone. Each 
chapter in the text builds on 
material from the previous one 
and advocates Abraham 
Maslow's concept of self- 

by Dee Aiken 

actualization The process of self- 
actualization is a becoming 
process in which a person is 
constantly learning, growing, 
and becoming better. One of the 
main themes throughout the text 
is the enjoyment and fulfillment 
of continued growth. 

In teaching Personal Health. 
Mrs, Bowers gears the activities 
to the individual as well as the 
group. Through the group ac- 
tivities, each person comes to 
know himself better and begins to 
view himself through the eyes of 
his peers. Any student taking 
Personal Health can see that 
Mrs, Bowers is a gracious woman 
who is interested in her students 
and cares for the growth of each

Blazing Saddles 

Hot Time In Pardee 

It started out as another 
"peaceful" evening in Pardee 
Hall. All the men were anxiously 
anticipating the start of classes 
the next day. Thursday. January' 
13. Gradually, as the evening 
progressed, the men retired to 
the warmth and comfort of Iheir 
beds to dream of yel another 
semester of diligent study. 

You were probably sound 
asleep between 12:15 a,m and 
12:45 am. that fateful winter 
evening. However, the men of 
Pardee did not have such luck. 
They were huddled together on 
Pardee's front lawn, staring 
worriedly as their 'home away 
from home" rapidly filled with 
thick, white smoke. To add salt to 
Ihe wound many were inap- 
propriately dressed for the oc- 
casion. Some were shivering in 
cut-off shorts, house slippers, 
bath robes, and t-shirts, among 
other things. Many voiced their 

concern with shouts of "I forgot 
my pel rock" and I want my 
Teddy Bear", as well as "ASliere 
are we going to sleep tonight?" 
The fire originated in the 
basement when an old. discarded 
mattress became overheated 
from a baseboard heater and 
caught fire Smoke was noticed 
around ir30 p.m and an alert 
resident quickly aroused the 
residents Soon the dorm was 
evacuated. Fire extinguishers 
were snatched from the walls and 
taken to the basement area. 
Therefore, windows were broken 
on the outside to facilitate the 
extinguishing of the blaze. Some 
men from Webb Hall also brought 
fire extinguishers and helped in 
that capacity Fortunately, the 
local fire department arrived 
within a few minutes and the 
blaze was extinguished Fans 
were utilized to remove most of 
the smoke from the hallwavs. 

Needless to say. a distinct and 
uncomfortable odor prevailed 
throughout the night At ap- 
proximately' 12:45 the residents 
were allowed back in the dorm. 
Some students, however, ac- 
cepted invitations to spend the 
night in Webb and Hardin Halls, 
The only damage was two broken 
windows and about 55 frozen 

The writer wishes to emphasize 
the danger which existed thai 
night. Fortunately, "cool heads" 
and cooperation prevented a 
dangerous situation from turning 
into a deadly situation. Please 
take care to prevent similar 
occurences from happening in 
your dorms- Inquire into the 
safety measures being taken, 
PS. Construction of fire escapes 
on Pardee began the day of the 
fire. As of this writing. 'Feb. 15),

Learning Center On Campus 

Since September 1974. the 
Milligan College Children's 
Learning Center has been helping 
to train Milligan students to work 
with children with learning 
disabilities. These are intelUgent 
children who have trouble 
learning because of some 
problem of perception, (This does 
not include mentally retarded 
children.) The Center is designed 
to deal individually with these 
children; last semester the 
enrollment was 21. The purpose 
for working with them is to 
"remidiate" them, or help the 
children overcome them 

The staff at the Center consists 
of special education professors 

and Milligan students. The latter 
usually start helping during their 
sophomore year. By the time 
they become seniors, they have 
considerable experience in 
testing and teaching methods. 
This feature of the project was an 
important reason for its begin- 

One important part of the 
Training Center is 'Testing 
Day." which occurs each Friday. 
This is the day when the child is 
tested for intelligence, reading 
ability, achievement level, 
auditory problems, and per- 
ceptual motor behavior. While 
the child is being tested, a faculty 
member talks to the parents, The 
<:taff member also visits the 

school the child attends. If the 
child can be helped by the Center, 
limes are set up for ?wo 45-minute 
sessions a week for him. 

Another important part of the 
program at the Learning Center 
is the once-a-week staff meeting 
The student teachers prepare 
lesson plans for discussion by the 
faculty Students can talk about 
activities and methods that they 
have found useful The exchange 
of ideas is helpful to everyone 

The Milligan College Children's 
Learning Center is relatively 
new, but it is able to report 
progress with each child in the 



Many a young man has phrased 
those words, at least silently, 
over the past several years, at 
both Milligan and Ozark Bible 
College. Julie Ann Alexander. 
Age: 23. Height: 5'4". Weight etc. 
left to your imagination. The 
blond, blue-eyed beauty from 
Kokomo, Indiana is really just a 
hometown girl w'ho has been 
blessed with talents which accent 
her looks. But don't let her ap- 
pearance and election as Senior 
Sweetheart paint her as an "if 
you've got it, flaunt it" man- 
killer! Julie feels about 
Sweetheart elections as George 
C, Scott does the Oscars 

Concerning her career at 
Milligan, Julie tells us she 
narrowly escaped attending 
Lincoln Christian College 
through the intrepid action of 
Larry Huff, i Thanks, L.H.t 
Impressed with Milligan's good 
facilities, i e. Science building. 
Steve Lacy Fieldhouse, Music 
Dept . and. of course Sam's 
Place. Julie's only remark 
concerning freshman week was, 
"Hmmm, Well. . ." Her major is 
Humanities, and Julie plans to do 
nothing with it However, she has 
visions of singing for her supper 
and all other living costs as well. 
Miss -Alexander is open to work in 
both the secular and religious 
music fields However, the larger 
need, she feels, is in the area of 
Christian music. 

Should you happen to take the 

Julie, Do You 

time to become better acquamtea 
with Julie, you'll find her to be a 
conscientious Christian. We 
asked her to list the three biggest 
lessons she's learned in her 
Christian life. "First would have 
to be: to behave consistently with 
all people: pleasing everyone as 
much as pjossible by first pleasing 
God Second: realizing more fully 
the depth and scope of God's love. 
Thirdly: accepting the situations 
when we must surrender any 
attempt of our own control and let 
God lake over completely." 
Commenting on the differences 
between a Bible college 
spirituality and that of Milligan. 
Julie says, "It was so easy to be a 
Christian there OBC * It was so 
stifling ... not enough room lo 
grow .... for me. at that time." 
Of Milligan: "There is more 
inhibition, less openness in 
sharing Spiritual things. People 
seem to be less sure of another's 
reaction to such discussions than 
al Bible college." 

Turning to less important 
subjects we asked Julie which of 
the following places she held for 
men in her career: business 
manager, store clerk, father. 
brother, or lover. She chose the 
last There's hope yet, men! lat 
least for one of us J Julie says men 
are 'good to have around". Julie

At the mention of the word 
"Pardee" most Milliganites get a 
definite picture in their mind. To 
a visitor. Pardee Hall probably 
seems like an old. run-down 
men's dorm. But, for those of us 
who live there. Pardee is not just 
a run-down dorm, but a run-down 
dorm with timeless traditions 
and class 

Over the years Pardee has 
been lovingly referred to as "the 
baseball dorm", "the wildest", 
"redneckiest" "uncultured", and 
"animal dorm"; each of which 
were probabty earned But 
despite its crude nicknames, a 
unique spirit of unity prevails 
among the residents of Pardee 
Pardee's public showers, central 
staircase, homey lounge, and 
overall camaradene make for a 
friendly, fraternal atmosphere. 
This IS not to say that Pardee 
residents always agree on 
everything For example, heated 
discussions are often held over 
which snuff is the best — skoal or 
Copenhagen However, this 
argument is trivial, for it makes 
nn difference what you're dippin 

as long as everyone spi 

If we were to look back into the 
legends and myths of Pardee's 
history, it would be clear to all 
why Pardee men are called 
"Rowdies". The Rovdies have 
been known to amuse themselves 
with such things as "little red 
wagon" races down the Hart- 
Sutton hill, frisbee throwing jam- 
borees, all night card games, 
fireworks wars, water balloon 
festivals the list goes on and 
on. In addition to these admirable 
pasttimes, Pardeeans were once 
widely known for their vigorous 
part'cipation in initiation ac- 
tivities In years past, no Pardee 
newcomer ever made it through 
fr^hman week without at least a 
slight case of creek water behind 

Pardee, though old and well 
wo.-n, will continue to serve 
Milligan College in its proud and 
noble traditions The Rowdies 
feel that they have established a 
precedent :n ideal dorm living to 
be followed by residents of Par- 
dee Hall for vears to come

Thought For Today 

by Ed Charlton 

by Debbie Piper 

We're all familiar with the 
passage in I Corinthians that 
speaks of love and how it should 
be expressed in the Christian life. 
A beautiful discourse, it is 
frequently referred lo in 
devotions and sermons — 
especially around Valentine's 
Day, Think of all the preachers 
you've heard who have chosen 
this text for their sermons around 
(he middle of February; we 
almost expect to hear it in some 
fashion or form. 

Well, regardless of popularity, 
one doesn't have lo read very far 
in the passage before he con- 
fronts a very simple, but thought- 
provoking truth. Verse 1 says "/If 
I speak with the tongues of men 
and of angels, but do not have 
love. I have become a noisy gcng 
or a clanging cymbal," 1NAS> 
Did you ever notice how much 
people love to talk? I'd venture lo 
say that some of us even imagine 
our voices lo be angelic, and the 
comments we make small 
oracles from Heaven But sooner 
or later, the more realistic of us 
come to the conclusion thai we 
sound more like Ihe "noisy 
g( ng' or "clanging cymbal" 
Ihal Paul was talking about. 

Follow yourself throughout any 
given day and, in the course of 
your living, consider the various 
things you talk about Then make 
a list of the things you say that 
are significant or thai serve lo 

build someone up By the end ol 
Ihe day. you will probably have 
found that you do a lot of "dream 
talking " Such as; "I'm going to 
do Ihis with my life." or, "I Ihink 
we need lo slarl being more 
friendly lo thai person — they 
seem so lonely." or "We really 
need Ic expand ihe walls of our 
little group and reach oul lo 

That's all fine — it's good to 
dream, it's good to come to 
realizations about how we can 
improve the quality of our lives, 
bui after we come to these 
realizations, we need lo do 
something about them God has 
blessed us wilh a way lo com- 
municate with others, ourselves, 
and Him, We can verbally ex- 
press our ideas, and then, 
together or as individuals, we can 
and should act on them. Unfor- 
tunately, we sometimes forget to 

The gift of speech is indeed 
wonderful It is one of the many 
"gifts of love" our Father has 
given us. May we always strive lo 
use our speech productively for 
the body of which we are all 
members, and may we use this 
■■gift of love" in a humble, loving 

"Let your speech always be 
wilh grace, seasoned, as it were, 
with salt, so that you may know 
how you should respond to each 
person," Colossians 4;6 (NASI

'Volunieer Natural Gas cuts

'Please use front entrance lo 
conserve energy' 

All of these headlines and 
requesis have been recently 
(hrusl before us in what has been 
called the wmler of the century', 
which IS barely one-half over. 
The crisis cold situation has, like 
Ihe Arab oil embargo only a few 
years past, "brought Americans 
quivering lo Iheir knees by 
dealing a crushing energy blow lo 
our resources and economy. 
Unfortunately, the hopeful 
longmgs for the spring thaw will 
also mell away our concern for 
conserving our precious energy 
resources The critical, capacity 
balance of production and con- 
sumption of energy in our 
country will recede and loom 
behind us until it is irritated 
again by another crisis situation. 
How many more such crises must 
come before we realize we are 
powered by a strictly limited 
fossil-fuel supply? 

Still, we ignore Ihe inevitable 
writing on the wall. Our 
prosperous culture has engrained 
the non -concern for energy 
conservation in our very thought 
processes. We think nothing of a 
scalding 5 to 10 minute shower, 
roaring across an interstate high- 
way ai 75, talking acoss 40 
channels of CB protection. 
driving to the cafeteria at every 
meal, cranking up the thermostat 
lo 75 degrees lo bask in a warm 
home, making endless trips lo 
town, producing and discarding 
items on an endless list of 

disposable, non-recycl cable 
petroleum products, and en- 
joying countless other luxuries of 
our energy-ignorant society. By 
now it is evident the nations of the 
world have recognized our 
si)endlhrift ways and begun lo 
capitalize on them. The recent 
meeting of OPEC has again 
shown our vunerability to ex- 
ploitation by an oil minister's 
comment concerning America's 
energy needs. The mid-East, 
OPEC nations do not wish lo 
escalate prices to immediately 
wreck the western economy. 
Rather, the goal is a guaranteed, 
gradual drain on the goose that 
lays the golden eggs' and her 
prosperity lo elevate the stan- 
dard of living in the third-world 
countries. Meanwhile, we stand 
helplessly by as always at the 
mercy of the OPEC nations. 

What right does our nation of 
215 million, barely 5 percent of 
the world population have to 
consumer over half the energy 
produced in the world^ Of the 300 
odd million vehicles in the world. 
133 million are in America. We 
have by far the largest supply of 
coal, yet production bearely 
meets demand Hydroelectric 
power is well developed and 
operating at near capacity, yet 
we frequently experience 
overload brown-ouls in peak 
usage hours We also produce 
more oil and gas than any other 
nation, yet we must import 
almost 40 per cenl of our supply 
Obviously, we are a nation 
hooked on a 6V; billion barrel a 
year habit of oil. In the past one 
minute you have spent reading 
this article, 1,237 barrels of oil, 
over 68.000 gallons, enough to fill 
10 dormitory rooms full to the 
» ceiling, have been burned across 
America, never lo be conserved 
or recovered. Unfortunately, no 
withdrawl from the habit is ex- 
pected By 1985, only 7 years 

Unanswered Questions 

Certainly at limes during your 
life you've been asked questions 
you just couldn't find an answer 
for; such as, what is it that Dave 
Wantz? How bad is Dee Aiken"* 
Why is Jeff Dainty? Who did 
Mike French lasf And how high 
is Sharon Rankin on his list? Who 
will Debbie Czap next and who 
will Nancy Hook'' Then yo 
might ask, why does Leigh Cook

who was Rick Whalin on? It was

Again, prosperity seems to be 
the cause, allhough we cannot be 
fully blamed for ihal, Al! of us 
have grown up in an relatively 
energy - worry-free world 
until recent years. Therefore, 
much energy waste is un- 
conscious. A subconscious af- 
terthought, gone unnoticed. The 
seemingly wasteful and an un- 
concerned use of energy is a 
learned way of life. The truly 
habitual nature of our problem is 
shown in a recent occurence on 
campus, namely the use of a 
single exit in all buildings. Even 
though signs have been placed 
and vocal reminders been given, 
we habitually Iraipse lo the exit 
we usually use, only lo find il 
locked. Then, the thought occurs. 
"Why didn't I remember that? I 
knew the doors were locked, but 
out of habil went the usual route 
lo my dorm,' Only concentration 
and a constant analysis, and 
probing where we as individuals 
are deficient in energy con- 
servation will cure the problem. 
Certainly, a decisive, specific 
federal energy policy is needed 
and helpful, but the success of 
such a plan rests upon the citizen 
to realize the sensible steward- 
ship of what God has provided for 
our needs 

As many a prophet of doom 
predicts, soon the last precious 
few gallons of fossil-fuel will 
disappear in an invisible wisp of 
carbon monoxide What then? 
No. we must ask. 'What now?' 
Even though the supply is 
limited, we can and must take 
measures lo correct the un- 
conscious waste of fuel resources

Cheek Gymn 

Many lovely buildings grace 
the grounds of our campus. 
Perhaps one of Ihe nicest 
buildings erected is Cheek 
Gymnasium Thisstalement may 
appear humorous, but. actually, 
Cheek was a tremendous ac- 
complishment in its day Built in 
the school year 1923-24 as a gift 
from Joel Cheek, the gym housed 
the latest developments as far as 
the athletic world was concerned. 
It contained a basketball court of 
maximum dimensions which 
adequately lit and well equipped. 
Up to 900 spectators could sil in 
the gallery surrounding three 
sides of the court and could be 
certain of an unobstructed view 
of the playing floor at any point 
The fourth side of the court was 
used for various types of gym- 
nastic equipment including rope 
ladders and parallel bars 

Below the basketball court was 
the wonder of all wonders — the 
swimming pool. The standard- 
sized pool had the necessary 
markings for all water feats. It 
was filled with beautiful spring 
water, kept fresh and pure by 
frequent changes. At first, the 
pool was used on alternate days 
by men and women. 

The most fascinating feature of 
the new gym was a two-lane 
Brunswich bowling alley. Too 
bad we can't have those today. 

Not only was Cheek a gym- 
nasium, but also a dormitory, 
featuring suties for faculty 
memtjers and taking the overflow 
from the men's dorm. 

Cheek Gymnasium is a 
Milligan landmark thai to added

Cautious Optimism 

Tin- painstaking sixties left 
America asking itself a host of 
moral questions, some of which. 
since the answers have not been 
written on clouds, we are still 
rehashing The Vietnam conflict, 
with its moral ambiguity, 
coupled with the entire 
Watergate fiasco, have given rise 
lo a moral preoccupation in 
government and pohtics which is 
alive and wett today This moral 
preoccupation has manifested 
Itself in the clamoring on behalf 
of oppressed minorities, the 
pulilic focus on the extra-marital 
sex games of federal lawmakers, 
the entreaties of frustrated en- 
vironmentalists, and the 
reconsideration of our very 
sLiiusin the world, just to name a 

The "agonizing appraisal" 
which we have had to make has 
nol been without a lot of hurt. 
Remember those tedious days 
when the Vietnam war was 
winding down to its last lingering 
il.ivs, with the Paris peace 
ni'^ntiations in a stalemate. 
Recall Nixon's "final days" as 
President, characterized by an 
almost manic vindictiveness of 
press and public. We lost con- 
fidence in our government, but 
much worse, we lost faith in 
ourselves and we scratched our 
heads as we questioned our 

Then came a period of low-key. 
yet honest, administration under 
President Ford, which delivered 
a much needed calming effect on 
the nation. Despite the pressure 
ol domestic economic strains, the 
Ford years witnessed a national 
catharsis, a settling of nerves 

Can we then say that we have 
completely passed this era of 
moral preoccupation? No, we 
have not. but we have emerged 
from the post-Vietnam- 
Walergate "dark ages" and have 
settled into a new phase of quiet, 
cautious optimism, in which we 
desire to build up more rights and 
nol have to do so much righting of 
wrongs. This cautious optimism 
is coming to be reflected twth in 
foreign affairs and domestic life 

llif \'ietnam ordeal, the US. had 
ii> reconsider its obligations as 
ij|ili'tlder and bulwark of the Free 
VSnikl We have made the 
iirrissary adjustments in so far 
as circumstances allow Whether 
wc view the policies of detente as 

a diplomatic essential or simply 
the temporary deferment of an 
inevitable showdown between 
Free World and Communist Bloc, 
there can be no question that the 
US. is trying to refine its image, 
the image fo a world power which 
seeks to maintain its venerabiiity 
while keenly respecting lesser 
nations, to uphold its military 
might without sacrificing its 
affability, and to proceed ac- 
cording to the vision it has for 
itself while adjusting to a world 
which is constantly undergoing 
political change Successfully 
projecting this image requires 
the utmost scrutiny, for the odds 
are turned against us. We seem to 
be perpetually taxed by 
aggravating conditions like the 
continuous military build-up of 
the Soviet Union, or the ever- 
present anti-American sentiment 
in the UN. or Panama's demands 
that we forfeit control of the 
Canal Zone, or threatening oil 
price hikes by Arab oil states, or 
Communist intrigues in Africa, 
and so forth. Yet we are more at 
ease and comfortable in our 
international relations Henry 
Kissinger did wonders for 
restoring confidence in the U.S. 
abroad, whether one agreed or 
disagreed with his tactics. The 
Carter administration now ap- 
pears intent on redefining detente 
as not to allow the U S to get the 
short end, Vice President 
Mondaie's recent mission to 
Europe, which President Carter 
intended "to show the strength 
and purpose of our nation and our 
commitment to carry out the 
obligations that we have as a 
leader in the world community," 
may hopefully have reassured 
western allies that the new ad- 
ministration is strongly behind 
NATO — definitely a step in the 
right direction, 

cautious optimism is reflected 
also in affairs at home. The 
election of a new president should 
be considered less a cause of this 
optimism than a product of it. for 
it was apparent before the 
campaign began This record- 
setting winter will undoubtedly 
have a severe impact on 
economic recovery Solution to 
unemployment is an awesome 
task, A recent report in US. 
noted that "a Ihree-pronged 

by Paul Blowers 

attack is going to tie needed — to 
provide work for those seeking 
jobs for the Tirsl time, to take 
care fo workers displaced by 
machines and new technology, 
and to pull the over-all unem- 
ployment rate down to 4 per cent 
of the work force without 

cranking up inflation to 
dangerous levels, or throwing the 
federal budget way out of kilter " 
Similarly, we are faced with the 
enormous job of cleaning up an 
enviornment which is suffering 
the abuses of industrial pollution 
— fortunately, some progress is 
starting to be made, Then, too. 
there are countless social 
problems : financially-crippled 
urban areas, housing shortages, 
high crime rates, and so on. 
These and other domestic issues, 
once thought of as the natural 
symptoms of a powerful and 
affluent nation, have now become 
moral issues. Americans have 
come lo the conclusion that 
American society has a moral 
duty to every one of its memtters, 
and so when Jimmy Carter ran 
for President, he emphasized a 
government which would be 
"warm" and "compassionate " 
Now there is a cautious optimism 
that America's domestic 
problems may be brought down 
to earth, and that the government 
will fulfill its "moral obligation" 
lo the people 

Thus, the "American mood" 
has taken a turn for the positive 
Hugh Sidey of TIME magazine 
senses this mood as a yearning 
for greater simplicity in 
American life. He noted that ". . , 
while the nation is looking 
cautiously ahead, it is also 
reaching back, trying to get a 
grip on its soul " Such a search 
for simplicity is reflected in the 
revival of evangelical religion, in 
the increasing emigration of 
people from cities to small towns 
and rural areas, and in other 
ways Sidey says, I would go 
further to say that Americans 
have discovered that they have 
too much going for them to let 
their spirit go sour, in spite of the 
sophistication and sophisticated 
problems of today, America 
recognizes that through all the 
socio-political metamorphoses of 
time, with their intermittent 
doldrums, there is still something 
very, very good at the heart of the 
American system. 

Social Work Opportunities 

Interest in social service - but 
uncertain about a career "* 

The most sure-fire way to zero 
in on career objectives is through 
practical work experience 

Centers for the Handicapped, 
located near Washington. DC. 
offers young people a one-year in- 
ternship working with han- 
dicapped children and adults 
Recruitment is underway now for 
interns to start in January 1977 

For the right person, the work- 
study experience offers many 
challenges and rewards Most 
important, it will affect decisions 
rtn one's life's work. 

Some participants will work on 
a rotating schedule, getting ex- 
perience in different programs 
within the Agency. All can 
specialize in their areas of 
primary interest at some point 
during their internship. Interns 
continue their education by 
taking courses at nearby colleges 
and universities 

Interns live cooperatively in 
townshouses provided by the 
agency, sharing responsibilities 
for cooking, cleaning, shopping 
and establishing their own 
regulationii. They receive no pay 
but are given a weekly sub- 

sistence allowance Each par- 
ticipate will receive a $1,000 
educational scholarship upon 
completion of the program 

Centers for the Handicapped 
programs serve 300 people, 
covering nearly every major han- 
dicapping condition. There are 
programs for infants, children 
and adults Among the services 
the agency provides are 
sheltered work, social 
rehabilitation, recreation, cam- 
ping, advocacy counseling and 

Applications are now being ac- 
cepted for the Intern Program

Legal Pot? 

\ASHVlLLE-Two Memphis 
Democrats, Sen John Ford and 
Rep Alvin King, have agreed lo 
sponsor Gov Ray Blanton's 
controversial bill lo 

decriminalize possession of small 
quantities of marijuana. 

At a news conference last 
week, Ford cited the need to free 
law enforcement personnel "lo 
gel criminals~not users who are 
high school or college students 
with very small amounts " 

"There is much more support 
(or It this year than last year," 
Sen, Ford said, "especially with 
the Governor's backing" Even 
so. Ford admitted that the Senate 
bill had no other co-signers. 

Ford was confident the bill 
would make it to ihe Senate floor. 
"A lot will vote for il." he said. 
"but Ihere are some who are still 
apprehensive aboul il" A similar 
measure failed in the Senate 
Judiciary Committee last year. 

House members favoring the 
measure want to increase 
penalties for pushers Rep King 
indicated that he plans to revise 
ihe bill "to make it belter." Other 
proposed legislative revisions by 
King and others include 
elimination of record after three 
years without further offenses 
and stiffer punishment on older 
persons selling to young people, 
particularly those of junion high

dramatic portrait of life in the 
mountains of Appalachia from 
the arrival of the first settlers to 
the present. It portrays the 
heritage of the mountain people 
by presenting on stage the par- 
ticular pleasures of their rich 
culture: their songs, dances, tall 
tales, ghost stories, superstitions, 
riddles, arid jokes, 

A mythical mountain family

and sorrows of settling and 
working their land, standing up lo 
land opportunists, and losing 
Iheir children to the cities and 
their friends to the coal mines. 

focuses on the pride and 
problems, the achievements and 
disappointments, and, above all, 
the fierce independence that 
makes the people of Appalachia 
unique In American life. 

The drama was written by 
Romulus LInney who has been 
recognized as an Important new 
American playwright and 
novelist He spent part of his life 
with relatives in the mountain 
region near Boone, North

Tired of the same old thing — 
Big Macs, Whoppers, and 
Chicken Peg-legs? Why not try 
something different — French 
food No longerneed the menu be 
prohibitive for the majority of us 
who are not French students 
Several foods such as eclairs, 
hors d'oeuvres. escargots, and 
bonbons have the same French 
meamng as they do in English, A 
salad is spelled much the same — 
une salade— as are tomatoes and 
carrots — des tomatoes, des 
carottes. For the mean and 
potatoes eater look for "du 
boeuf" and "des pommes de 
terre". Ham is referred to as "du 
jambon", while chicken may be 
found under "du coq au vin" 
French bread is known as "le 
pain" and pastries as "la 
patisserie" Although coffee — le 
cafe — may be ordered with 
meals, the French often have 
wine — le vin — with their meals, 
so a wine list should be included 
with the menu. 

Needless lo say, there is an 
authentic French restaurant in 
Knoxville. and there may be one 
in your own hometown True, 
many foods you still don't know 
how to order, but, chances are, 
the water will speak English. If 
not, good luck — you're on your

the development of AP- 
September of 1975. the Carolina 
Regional Theatre hosted a 
coloquium of Appalachian 
historians, oral historians, and 
musfcologists from all over 
Southern and Central 

Appalachia The result was a 
brilliant exchange of facts and 
philosophies, stories and songs — 
hours of taped conversations and 
anecdotes by these leaders — 
which served as a basis and 
direction for the research which 
was incorporated into the script

selection of every piece. Two 
respected, native Appalachian 
musicians perform on guitar, 
banjo, fiddle, mandolin and

and sorrows felt by AP- 
mountain family. Incorporating 
early times with their Scotch and 
Irish orgin, party songs, love 
ballads, foot-stomping fiddle 
(unes, hymns, and mournful 
ballads which tell of hard times, 
personal misfortunes and 
community disasters. the

providing an entertaining

Inside Women's Sports 

Even before Spring was of- 
ficially here the Women's Soft- 
ball and Tennis teams were busy 
practicing. The tennis team is 
being coached this year by Myra 
O'Dell, Seven women are out for 
the team. They are Belinda 
Brown, Leigh Cook, Sue Whit- 
mer, Kim Moses. Kalhy Harder, 
Jill Healy. and Cindy Brady,

April 26 - 3:00 Emory and 

May 2 -4:00 Virginia Intermont 
The team has a new coach this 
year and a couple of new players 
Belinda Brown had this to say 
about this year's team. "It should 
be a fun season and we'll gain a 
lot of experience in the prc»cess" 

Softball is the other Spring 
sport for women. Miss Bonner is 
again coaching the team and is 

by Sue Hanson 

being helped this year oy tv,o 
assistant coaches. Robin Johnson 
is helping with the outfield and 
Doug Thatcher with the infield. 

There are about 23 girls out for 
the team and Coach Bonner will 
be operating on a no cut policy 
with the starting team composed 
of the player who has earned the 
position based on practices, 
scrimmages and performance 
The team will have an expanded

The Milligan College Baseball 
Bults have really come out 
swingin' this year Coach Harold 
Stout's squad, which will be the VSAC Eastern 
Division Championship, con- 
cluded the recent swing through 
the South with an Impressive 7-1 
record Perhaps the highlight of 
the tour was a 6-3 drubbing ot 
Georgia Tech The Butts also 
finished second out of seven 
teams in a Round Robin Tour- 
nament in Florida against 
predominantly larger schools. 

Two keys to the Buffs' success 
this vcar will be the per- 
formances of the pitching staff as 
well as the play of several 
newcomers. Defensive strength 
"up the middle" will be excellent 
this year with the addition of two 
fine players to Milligan's 
program Catcher Mark Fox, a 
strong-armed Freshman, will be 
calling the signals for the Buff 
hurlers- Derek Carrier, a tran- 
sfer from Vanderbilt, will be at 
shortstop for the Buffs. Derek, a 
sophomore, is an exceptional 
defensive player whom Stout 
expects to anchor a tough 
defensive infield. 

Three other freshmen will be 
wearing the Orange and Black 
this spring. Eric "Beaver" 
Ryans, from Davy Crockett H.S., 
IS expected to see planty of action 
in the outfield. Beaver's out-

Science Flicks 

The past couple of years at the 
movies have been years flooded 
with scientific documentaries 
These movies attempt to explain 
the many mysteries of the world 
■'In Search of Noah's Ark" is only 
one of many movies concerned 
with a mystery that has baffled 
mankind for centuries. Monsters 
and men from outer space are 
common themes of the scientific 
documentary. This year appears 
lo have many new films of this 
nature being released. The 
following is a brief summary and 
review of three of these movies. 

Late in December of 1976. 
Warner Blunders released a 
movie that is destined to become 
a classic "The Trojan Horse: 
Yea or Neigh?" deals with recent 
archaelogical finds near Greece 
This movie convincincly exhibits 
evidence proving the existence of 
a large, horse-like creature The 
viewer is left with little doubt that 
such a creature did exist when he 
sees the great masses of petrified 
horse droppings and the gigantic 
horse shoe This is truly a movie 
for the whole family The only 
nude scene, a naked horse with 
men climbing out of it, is done in 
excellent taste. 

■'1 Found It Atlantas" was 
released late in February of this 
year by 20th Century Ox. The 
iiarrator of this film is Dr. Goo 
Fupp. professor of archaeology 
at a small Christian liberal arts 
college in east Tennessee. Dr 
Fupp claims to have discovered 
the lost city of Atlantas. His 
expedition takes the viewer to 
sites in the southeastern United 
States. Most educated audiences 
realize early in the movie that 
what Dr Fupp has actually 

by John Sichting 

Qiscovered is Atlanta. Georgia 
This realization is commonly 
followed by swearing and 
violence, so it is usually nol 
recommended for children. If the 
viewer is able to last the first two 
hours he should slay for the final 
half hour which consists of Dr. 
Fupp's analysis of a Brave's 
baseball game. 

A less reputable producer, 
Colombia - Havanna. will 
probably go up in smoke after 
Iheir last movie "The LochNess 
Monster's Baby Brother." 
Although the producers claim 
that their movie is entirely 
factual, most scientists, critics. 
and even deranged reviewers 
write this production cff as a 
farce In the opening scene, a 
large, lizard-like creature crawls 
out of a lake and devours a small 
village The nudity and violence 
in this film is to coarse for most 
children, adults, purse- 
snatchers. bank robbers, rapists, 
child molesters and murderers. 
At least it IS good to see that 
1977 will probably produce the 
same quality movies as previous 
years The best thing about this 
year's scientific documentaries 
will be Ihe exits in the theatres.

The STAMPEDE, April 1977. Page 4 


NOTE The author, Dr Charles 
L. Shedd, founded the Reading 
Researrh Foundation of 
Lai'ayette. La , prior to his 
premature death in 1974 At that 
time, more than 25,000 dyslexic 
students throufihoul the United 
States wtre enrolled in his 
remedial reading programs 

What follows is part of a paper 
he published in 1971 dealing with 
theinstructionof social values, In 
Ihe build-up to what follows, Dr, 
Shedd has presented this view of 
John Dewvy, Jean Rousseau, and 
Jean Piaget: 

Dewey labled society, religion, 
and all other authoritarian 
systems as dangerous evils, 
particularly as they related to 
nioratsand ethics Rather than a 
set system. Dewey preached an 
experimental attitude both 
socially and individually His 
"ethic" was "reflective 
morality," which, in Dewey's 
own words, "demands ob- 
servation of particular situations, 
rather than fixed adherence to A 
PRIORI principles " As with all 
other social property, social 
values were to be elected 
democratically Rousseau ad- 
vocated withdrawal of social 
commands andor demands, 
Piaget, upon the doctrine of in- 
nate purity, believed that only 
interactions within the peer 
group, and not across generation 
gaps, could provide a valid 

"A blending of these views 
provided an underpinning for 
practical programs. Watchwords 
were: learning by experience, 
education for initiative and 
originality, education for in- 
dependent thinking, education for 
democracy, educating the whole 
child, working with each child on 
his own level, developing the 
child to the maximum of his 
potential, meeting each child's 
needs, interest and motive as the 
basis of all learning 

"We are warned again by 
watchword of the horrors of 
traditional education There 
should be a discontinuance of: 
departmentalisation, secondhand 
experience, directed learning, 
other-initiated activity, rigidly 
established schedules, artificial 
stimulation of interests, non- 
integrated experience, 
authoritarian teaching, 

"Practically, we should allow 
the children to "swim in the 
stream of life or walk along the 
highways of life " All educational 
planning should center around a 
"core of interest." employing 
"integrated instruction", with 
"panoramic learning" An 
example of the desirable type of 
activity was recently described 
by a teacher with a daffodil 
proejct. She organized the entire 
instruction around the daffodil. 
She devoted lime first to the 
anatomy and physiology of the 
daffodil; then to its geography; 
after that to drawing the daffodil; 
next to poetry about it, then to 
felt-board work with related 
materials; and finally to dancing 
around the flower bed. 

"We do not know how much or 
how little the students learned 
through the project in terms of 

interest about the daffodil, bul we 
do wonder how the child was 
brought by way of this procedure 
to share the wealth of meanings 
accumulated by untold 
generations of men There are 
many things which all members 
of society should learn to know as 
early as possible, and which can 
be solidly assimiliated only with 
Ihe help of abstract thinking and 
abstract learning- 

"How, with such procedures, 
could a child come to realize the 
nature and functions of a national 
state** Yet political science, since 
Ihe time of Aristotle, knows well 
that the best laws will be of no 
avail unless the young are 
trained in the spirit of the polity, 
unless they are habituated to 
think of Ihe national state as a 
whole and feel attached to it How 
can a child learn the nature of 
money as distinct from wealth, 
the mechanics of the circulation 
of wealth, good from bad 
taxation, what are legitimate 
functions of trade unions and 
what are not ; what are the duties 
of the producer and of the con- 
sumer, and the like? We en- 
courage our children to be 
exaggeratedly aware of social 
problems We want them to 
appreciate that there are slums. 
prejudice, poverty Bul we 
scarcely point out from whence 
we came and whither mankind. 
These programs have been in 
operation for over fifty years, yet 
the problems of mental illness, 
poverty, broken homes, crime 
and ddinquency, discrimination, and 
war continue at new and moie 
grisly heights 

"What can we say about these 
conditions as they relate to the 
thesis of modern education? Can 
we say that economy does not 
enter into racial discrimination? 
That propaganda is not a factor 
in war"* That poverty does not 
breed crime? Can we say that 
these are untrue^ They are true: 
but they are half-truths And a 
half-truth presented as a whole 
truth becomes in the end a total 
he How were Dewey, Piaget and 
others to know that in the end 
there would come a changed 
environment with prosperity and 
reduction of authority such as no 
man had ever seen'' How were 
they to know that such an age of 
affluence with personal and 
material security would witness 
a level and degree of personal 
and social disorganization, never 
witnessed before"' They could 
not Yet. if they could or would 
evaluate their conceptions today, 
both would see that simple 
sovereign assumptions regarding 
the nature of man are damning. 
Despite the obvious inadequacy 
of philosophy, men have the 
capacity for systematic delusion. 
We echo each other with 
precision, eloquence and 
assurance We form cults whose 
function it is to repeat the 
catechism We then accept the 
niagnitude of the echo as an in- 
dication of truth And on this 
magnitude we gamble the 
security of civilization. Despite 
Ihis enlightenment, there is an 
apparent lack of awareness or 
deliberate attempts on the part of 
some professional educators to 

hiild to Ihe "half-truths" 

"Education, as practiced in 
some areas, is a gigantic 
monopoly controlled by a few 
individuals in some teacher-

dividuals determine what shall

how ii shall be taught In many

loo many times we view me 
perfection of Jesus in only one 
aspect of his life Usually when 
we think of Jesus' perfection, we 
think of it only in terms of his 
atoning act. Jesus had to be 
[lerfecl because only one who was 
withoul sin could die in Ihe place 
of one who had sinned. And, of 
course, we pull out all kinds of 
Old Testament scriptures to 
substantiate our claims All of 
this is well and good, but this is 
lust one way of viewing Jesus' 

What about the times that 
Jesus set an example or pattern 
(or us to follow^ Usually we think 
of the example in terms of how 
Jesus treated others and then in 
respect to how we should treat 
others. But , what if I were to say 
thai Jesus set an example of 
perfection which we are supposed 
to follow'' We should be perfect 
Many people would answer with 
something like, "Only Jesus 
could do that 'be perfect), 
because he waS the Son of God," 
or, "He had something special, 
some special power that we do 
not have " And other people will 
say, "Perfection is an ideal which 
will only be realized in heaven," 
or. "A human being can never be 
perfect " It seems that too many 
times we find excuses for putting 
the harder goals aside and put- 
ting in the substitutions 

Should we be perfecf Can we 
be perfecf ll seems that since 
Jesus was perfect we also should 
try to be perfect It also seems 
that since Jesus was actually a 
human being, for which we will 
argue until we are blue in the 
face, then we too can be perfect 
If a person chooses to argue that 
Jesus had something special 
which we do not have, then thai 
person completely loses the ef- 
fectiveness of his argument that 
Jesus was really a human and 
that he suffered and was tempted 
in all the same ways we are. 

Still not convinced? Permit me 
to quote some scripture for you. 
The author of James says. ", , . 
the testing of your faith produces 
steadfastness And let stead- 
fastness have its effect, that you 
may be perfect and complete, 
lacking in nothing." (James 1:2- 
4 1 Paul brings this out constantly 
in his letters, Philippians 2:14 & 
15 says, "Do all things withoul 
questionine or grumbling, that 

by John Robertson 

you may be blameless and in- 
nocent, children of God without 
blemish in the midst of a crooked 
and perverse generation, among 
whom you shine as lights in the 
world " Ephesians 4 talks of the 
church and how we should all be 
equipped to build the body of 
Christ, "until we all attain to the 
unity of the faith and of the 
knowledge of the Son of God. lo 
mature manhood, to the measure 
of the stature of the fulness of 
Christ .,"(4: 13 -15). Then Jesus 
himself says, "You therefore, 
must be perfect, as your 
heavenly Father is perfect." (Ml, 

How can we be perfecf If there 
IS one thing that did help Jesus it 
was the Holy Spirit. Now people 
say. "We who are Christians 
have the Holy Spirit too, but we 
still are not perfect" I would 
answer thai Jeusus is probably 
the only person who actually let 
the Spirit completely control him. 
It is not that Jesus had the Spirit 
which perfected him, but that 
Jesus let the Spirit work through 
him so much that it worked 
completely to its fullest capacity. 
By doing so. Jesus' will be con- 
formed to God's will, and if Ihat 
were the case, what would there 
be but perfection That is just the 
catch. Too many limes we don't 
let the Holy Spirit work to its 
fullest extent and we fall short. 
But thai does not mean that we 
stop altogether. And who. on the 
other hand, will actually know if 
or when he is perfect. Jesus never 
went around assuming to be a 
demigod who knew everything. 
Rather, he served and gave his 
life. Paul says. "Not thai I have 
already obtained this or am 
already perfect, but 1 press on to 
make it my own. because Christ 
Jesus has made me his own." 
(Phil, 3:12). 

Perfection is not an ideal bul a 
reality, made real in Jesus 
Reality for us because we too 
have the Holy Spirit which will 
give us the strength and guidance 
we need to conform our will to our 
Creator's. "Now to him who by 
the power at work within us is 
able to do far more abundantly 
than all that we ask or think, to 
him be glory in the church and in 
Christ Jesus to all generations, 
tor ever and ever. Amen" (Eph, 
3:20 & 211. 

Social Dancing is not a pari of the 
Milligan Tradition - MILLIGAN 

To dance or not to dance, that is 
the question i Hamlet^ » This 
question has concerned the 
MiUigan community for quite 
some time, especially during the 
past few years Although most 
students are no doubt aware of 
the arguments and opinions 
regarding the issue, there may t>e 
those who are not It is for those 
good people that I write this ar- 
ticle So the rest of you may 
proceed to the next article, 'Per- 
sonally, the subject doesn't in- 
terest me but this article gives 
me something to do) Aiaw 

Why isn't social dancing a part 
of the Milligan tradition when 
most students would welcome it 
on campus'' I would even hazard 
to guess that many faculty mem- 
bers and administrators would 
not resent it either. So why isn't 
social dancing incorporated into 
social affairs? Or should it be'?? 
Additional information is 
necessary. You've heard the ex- 


pressions — You don't look a gift 
honse in the mouth and you don't 
bite the hand that feeds you'* 
That appears to be the case here 

Milligan receives a great deal 
of financial support from various 
churches and individuals In 
addition most Milligan students 
are members of these churches 
As you can surmise, Milligan is 
very dependent (and ap- 
preciative) of these churches and 
individuals. Naturally, the 
college is necessarily attentive 
and sensitive to their wishes and 
attitudes, and rightfully so These 
wishes and attitudes are reflec- 
ted and voiced through the gover- 
ning body of the school ' Board of 
Directors and Board of 
Trustees) In other words, those 
playing a major part in sup- 
porting the school do not feel that 
social dancing should be m- 
corporated into the social life of 
the college, Apparently they feel 
thai social dancing does not con- 
tribute to the development of "an 
active and meaningful social 
life," (see P 8 MILLIGAN 

by Rick Kelly 

The STAMPEDE April 1977, Page 5 

Letter To The Editor I 

However, many students do 
feel that dancing is an enjoyable 
and worthwhile part of their 
social life and frequently go off 
campus to dance. If the ad- 
minislration & board want to 
keep students "out of trouble" 
why not attempt to find an alter- 
native'' Such an alternative may 
be found in the form of a spring 
dance, perhaps in conjunction 
with wonderful Wednesday or 
some other occasion After all, 
what better way to boost student 
morale and celebrate the spring 
weather^ I'm sure that a few 
faculty members can be "per- 
suaded" to chaperone Golly gee. 
they might even enjoy it. 

But. of course, the major <and 
perhaps only ) object ion lo all this 
would probably come from the 
governing Ixidy of the school As 
you know word spreads quickly. 

Well, that's the way it is and at 
this point it doesn't appear that a 
whole lot can be done, but should 
the restriction on social dancing 
be abolished'* What do you think?

the reading of several hundred

served as an advisor during the 
formulation of the project 

Under the direction of Calvin 
Skaggs, of Drew University, a 
committee of twelve literary 

scnoiars was then organized, and 
members were given a list of 100 
stories to read and reduce to a list 
of 20, The final choices were 
made on the basis of "literary

Over the years, Milligan 
College has seen the needs of the 
students and, more often than 
not, has found the means to me«t 
ihem A growing student body 
was accomodated in 1967 by the 
completion of Seeger Memorial 
Chapel; in 1972 by the dedication 
of the Science Building and in 
1976 when the Steve Lacy 
fieldhouse became a reality. 
Other definite needs are being 
mew with the remodeling of the 
Administration Building this 
summer, the restoration of the 
old mill and the completion of the 
amphitheatre in the near future. 
Amid the new construction, 
however, stands a totally unused 
building, and student need 
demanding to be fulfilled. With 
some determination and work, 
both of these problems could be 
solved in one action 

Totally Ignored in the middle of 
this campus is Cheek Activity 
Center In its day, the Cheek 
gymnasium was one of the finest 
in the state but with the com- 
pletion of the Steve Lacy 
fieldhouse, ti has t>een shut, 
locked and neglected It seems 
strange that a building the size of 
Cheek should go unused Among 
other possibilities, this building 
could be renovated into a new 
Student Activity Center Such an 
Activity Center would cure the 
desperate need for ON-CAMPUS 
student activity The existing 
Student Union Building, which 
has become outdated and entirely 
loo confined, could then expand 
its bookstore and "drugstore" 
facilities. A building the size of 
Cheek could supply a variety of 
activities for Milliganites, There 
could be bowling alleys, a small 
cafe, activity rooms, arts and 
crafts rooms, and meeting rooms 
for the ever increasing number of 
clubs and organizations on 

The existing swimming pool in 
the basement is no longer needed 
and can. therefore, be cemented 
m and replaced with bowling 
alleys. With the advent of the 
bowling club this year, the lanes 
would assuredly meet the needs 
of the present and the future. 

The basketball floor and 
surrounding area can be con- 
verted into an informal cafe with 
possibly a stage at one end for 
dinner plays or small concerts. 
An outlet for small drama 
productions by students and the 
concerts given by Gene Cotton, 
Rising Hope, and others is 
presently needed This need is 

from Jim Young 

bound to increase in the years to 
However, the biggest demands 
would be met by the many 
remaining classrooms and of- 
fices They could be made into 
game rooms furnished with card 
tables and entertainment 
equipment, and activity rooms 
with ping-pong and pool tables. 
Since the clubs on campus have 
no place to meet, rooms could be 
set aside for this purpose. Many 
students are actively involved in 
leathercrafl, woodcarvng. art 
and pottery, but have insufficient 
space m dormitory rooms lo 
accomodate these interests. Also, 
a roomate does not often share 
the same enthusiasm in the craft 
and tensions mount There needs 
lo t>e a place for these activities 
where students of similar in- 
terests can share their projects 
and ideas on the craft 

Granted, there are obstacles 
which would accompany such an 
undertaking, but none which 
could not be cooperatively 
worked out. One of the first and 
loudest arguments will concern 
the cost of renovation However, 
if one will only remember how 
the first SUB was financed and 
constructed, the problem can be 
at least partially worked out. 
Students helped to raise the 
needed money and did much of 
the construction then. Why 
couldn't students do it now? 

The next problem is the cost 
and job of maintenance It should 
be obvious Ihal it Ihe sludcnts 
would work hard enough to raise 
money and help with the 
remodeling they would also work 
to keep the Center clean in 
repair The costs of the operation 
can be largely offset by the cost 
of bolwing, the selling of food, the 
cost of dinner plays and the 
facility can even tie rented out for 
other activities 

There now exists the seemingly 
insurmountable problem of 
Cheek being "condemned." Now 
that the Fieldhouse is completed 
and nothing is going to take that 
away from Milligan. there should 
be another inspection of Cheek 
for structural soundness and the 
findings seriously scrutinized by 
a non-partisan committee made 
up of Board memters, faculty and 
students It may become ap- 
parent that that building has 
several good and productive 
years left in it . nto as an Ignored, 
old gymnasium filled with only 
memories, but as a vibrant, 
living Student Activity Center.

What To Do 

NASHVILLE - With the roar 
of a hundred locomotives, tor- 
nadoes pack the most violent win- 
ds on the earth's surface, and 
those storms have claimed more 
than 150 lives in Tennessee since 
1950. statistics show 

While nothing can be done to 
prevent tornadoes, every citizen 
can take steps lo avoid personal 
injury or death when the next tor- 
nado strikes, according to of- 
ficials of State Civil Defense and 
the U.S- National Weather Ser- 
vice and Cecil M Palmer, 
meteoologist-in-charge of the U 
S. National Weather Service in 
Nashville, listed nine rules for 
personal protection during a tor- 
nado. They include: 
- Seek protection in a cellar, 
basement or underground ex- 
cavation if time permits These 
are the best protection against in- 
jury during a tornado. 

- If in open country, move at 
right angles to the tornado's path, 
if time permits. If the funnel 
cloud is visible, seek shelter in 
the nearest depression m the 
ground. Lie flat in a ditch, ravine 
or culvert. 

- In cities, seek shelter inside 
strongly reinforced buildings 
away from windows Standing 
against inside walls on lower 
floors of office buildings offers 
some protection against tor- 

- In homes without basements, 

individuals should take cover un- 
der heavy furniture and against 
inside walls 

- Students and teachers in 
strongly reinforced schools 
should remain near inside walls, 
preferably on a lower floor and 
away from windows The 
auditorium and gymnasium 
should be avoided durmg tor- 

- In schools not strongly rein- 
forced, particularly in rural 
areas, students and teachers 
should leave the building, taking 
shelter in a ditch, ravine or 
depression if a storm cellar is not 

- In factories, lookouts should 
be posted to keep officials ad- 
vised of a tornado's approach, 
and advance planning should be 
made to move employes to the 
strongest structure in the com- 

- Persons driving vehicles as a 
tornado approaches should pull 
off the road and take the best 
available shelter outside the 

"Most importantly, citizens 
should remain calm during a 
period of tornado warning or 
when a tornado is actually 
present in the area," McFarland 
said "Many people have been 
killed or needlessly injured by 
running into streets in panic Slay 
calm and keep tuned to radio and 
television for information." 

Tuition Free 

NASHVILLE -Senior citizens 
over the age of 65 may soon t>e 
able to take college courses for 
credit without tuition charges, if 
a measure sponsored by Sen 
Victory Ashe, R-Knoxville, is 
successful on the Senate floor. 

The bill, which passed the 
Senate Education Committee, 
will allow persons over 65 pur- 

suing a degree to enroll free of 
charge, although the bill 
authorizes a service charge of not 
more than S50 per quarter or $75 
per semester to "handle red 
tape." according to Ashe, 

Persons over age 60 may now 
audit college courses at state 
institutions, space permitting, 
free of charge 


ATLANTA — Urban plannmg, 
occupational health and safety, 
neurosciences and African 
history are just four of 89 
graduate programs in out-of- 
state universities available to 
Southern students at in-state 
tuition rates through the 
Academic Common Market, 
organized by the Southern 
Regional Education Board 

The Academic Common 
Market, an interstate academic 
sharing program, makes 
specialized graduate programs 
available to students in 12 
Southern states and discourages 
needless, and often expensive, 
duplication of programs and 
facilites among states 

Qualifying for the Academic 
Common Market is a simple 
procedure The student must be 
accepted into a program offered 
through the Common Market and 
then must be certified as a 
resident of a state which has 
made arrangements to send its 
students to that program.

favorable job opportunities for 
black graduates in those fields 
where job openings exceed the 
overall supply of college 
graduates and in areas where 
blacks are especially un- 

Some fields meeting both of 
those conditions include the 
health specialties, engineering, 
accounlmg, computer sciences, 
public administration and 
urban and regional planning, 
according to Black College 
Graduates and the Job Market 
in the South, 1980, published by 
the Southern Regional 
Education Board. 

In health specialties, for 
example, the bachelor's degree- 
level fields show scant black 
representation, while demand 
in the South is estimated to 
outstrip the supply of all 
graduates through 1980 Allied 
health fields such as nursing, 
therapy, hospital and health 
care administration, as well as 
the health professions 
(medicine, dentistry, op- 
tometry, veterinary medicine 
and podiatry), offer excellent 
employment opportunities. 

Black enrollment in business 
and management has risen 
sharply This shift of black 
students is a healthy trend 
because of continuing black 
under-representation in the 

business sector, according to 
the report. 

Black women, traditionally 
inclined toward the more 
career-oriented studies, have 
greater representation than 
white women in what were 
traditionally male-dominated 
fields Employment outlook is 
favorable IT black women 
continue to choose disciplines 
which show favorable job 
markets, the study indicated 

On the other hand, teaching is 
considered a high risk area for 
future employment for all 
races Although there is an 
. oversupply of teachers, 40 
' percent of the bachelor's and 
master's degrees earned by 
blacks in 1973-74 were in teacher 
education This compares lo 
only 29 percent for all college 

The SREB report also warns 
of market saturation and 
diminishing opportunities for 
blacks in overcrowded fields, 
even though blacks are not 
highly represented in some of 

"Although affirmative action 
programs may possibly offset 
scarcity of openings in fields 
such as communications, ar- 
chitecture, law, pharmacy, 
psychology, letters and 
biological sciences," observed 
Eva Galambos, author of the 
report, "the job search will be 
easier for blacks who earn 
degrees in other fields where 
job openings exceed numbers of 
emerging graduates of all 
races " 

Black college eradualfs in 
1980 will constitute 11,3 percent 
of the region's total market 

reaay graduates, Dr Galambos 
predicU The proportion in the 
various fields of study, 
however, differs from this 
overall II 3 percent share For 
example, market-ready black 
engineering graduates are 
projected to represent -1,4 
percent of the total in 
engineering but 15.9 percent in 
teacher education. Although in 
both fields, blacks are un- 
derrepresenled relative to their 
proportion of the entire regional 
black population, blacks in 
education are overrepresented 
relative to (heir proportion of 
market-ready degrees in all

If you're going lo do some 
coamping or backpacking, or just 
spend a weekend off campus, 
food will be a major con- 
sideration in planning, 

Fo(jds such as raisins, nuts, 
crackers, canned soups and 
.•itews, sardines, packages of low- 
lat dry milk, apples and oranges 
are a good bel These foods are 
portable and pack well, light- 
weight, easy to carry, and non- 
perishable, and they don't 
require a lot of fancy cooking 

For a great snack, a com- 
bination of several of these foods 
makes GORP Originally GORP 
meant "good ol' raisins and 
peanuts." but the basic GORP 
has endless variations 

Here are several GORP 
combinations you might try: 

Hiking GORP: I cup raisins, 1 
cup peanuts, ' j cup candy-coaled 

Biker's GORP: 1 cup raisins, 1 
cup natural cereal, ';■ cup sun- 
flower nuts 

Olympic GORP: 1 oup raisins. 
*i cup chopped walnuts, 'j cup 
shredded coconut 

Just combine the ingredients 
and throw them in a plastic bag 
or container 

Raisins in snak boxes or packs 
also arc an Ideal portable, light- 
weight snack food Last summer 
Olympic athletes in Montreal 
knew the value of raisins as a 
snack. Sixtypeight thousand 
raisin snack packs were sent to 
the Olympic foodservice 
operation for use in box lunches 
and on a cqld buffet table, In fact, 
raisins were designated the of- 
ficial snack food of the 1976 
Summer Games 

Raisins, which have a high 
carbohydrate content, giving you 
fuel for energy, also contam 
important minerals and vitamins 
including iron, potassium and 
certain B vitamins.

NASHVILLE--A bill rpquihng 
prospective medical students a I 
state schools to sign an 
agreement to practice at least 
four years in Tennessee passed 
unanimously in the stale Senate 
last week 

The measure, which also 
passed the House Education 
Committee last week, would 
affect students applying for 
admission after January 1, 1978 
Applicants would be required to 
sign a contract saying they would 
practice in Tennessee for at least 
four years following graduation 
or repay the state the ""just and 
proportionate share" of the 
state's cost of the medical 

Refusal to sign the agreement 
would constitute grounds for 
denial of admission. Both the UT 
Center for the Health Sciences 
and the East Tennessee Medical 
School, if it receives ac- 
creditation, would be affected 

The bill excludes out-of-state 
students who are under another 
agreement between their state of 
residence and Tennessee 

The bill, sponsored by Sen 
William Baird. D-Lebanon, and 
Rep. Shelby Rhinehart, D- 
Spencer, is an effort to curb the 
high percentage of Tennessee 
medical students who leave the 
state to practice. 

Drug Bill 

NASHVILLE - After standmg 
the test of amendments from both 
the Senate and the House, the bill 
allowing pharmacists to sub- 
stitute 11 drugs for their generic 
equivalents is now ready for Gov. 
Ray Blanlon's signature. 

After a lengthy debate, during 
which 11 amendments were of- 
fered, senators voted 27-3 to pass 
the bill with only two amend- 
ments attached 

The two changes require 
physicians to sign their per- 
mission on the form to substitute 
and to limit substitution to drugs 
manufactured in the United 
States, Puerto Rico, and the 
Virgin Islands. 

The House concurred with the 
Senate's amendments and sent 
the bill to the Governor as they 
ended their fifth legislative week. 
The bill's House sponsor, Rep 
Pam Gaia, DMemphis. was 
pleased with the bill's passage 
after two years of work on the 
measure, "The change," she 
said, "will only mean that 
physician* wlU have to have 
unifwrn prescription Wanki" 

NASHVILLE - Legislation to 
reduce penalties for marijuana 
possession of one-half ounce or 
less failed in the Senate Judiciary 
Committee for lack of a con- 
stitutional majority, but the bill's 
sponsor says the measure is not 
doomed for the 1977 session 

The bill, reducing the current 
penally for marijuana possession 
of one-half ounce or less from 
maximum 11 months and 29 days 
jail term and $1,000 fine to $50 
fine, failed 8-7 The bill lacked 
one vole of the nine necessary to 
pass it out to the senate floor 

Sen. John Ford, D-Memphis, 
sponsor of the bill, said, "I don't 
think the bill should die thai way. 
I may try to bring it up again in a 
couple of weeks after things have 
cooled off." Ford said later that 
Sen. Ed Blank, D-Columbia, who 
was out of town the day of the 
committee's meeting, had in- 
dicated that he would vole for the 

Ford blamed failure of the bill 
on the committee for "listening to 
rhetoric, and not wisdom." in 
considering the measure 

Debate on the bill focused on 
harmful effects of the weed and 
seventy of penally in relation to 
the actual use of the drug, while 
sponsor Ford urged his 
colleagues to "civilize" penalties 
for possession of one-half ounce 
or less, enough for approximately 
15 marijuana cigaretts 

"Marijuana is less harmful 
than alcohol," said Sen, Avon 
Williams, D-Nashville. "and 
alcohol IS legal" 

Along the same line, Ford 
added, "Cigaretts are still on the 
market Lei's get rid of the real 
crime in our communities." 

"It's proven that 

decriminalization does not in- 
crease use of marijuana," Ford 
continued, "and it won't cause a 
felony conviction to follow a 
young person throughout his 

Sen. Doug Henry, D-Nashville. 
successfully introduced amend- 
ments to add up to ten days jail 
term to the fine. He told the 
committee that members of the 
Law Review Commission had 
suggested the amendment, and 
they felt that present penalties 
were "unreasonably severe,"" 
Sen. Bill Baird, D-Lebanon, 
told Henry, "I guess you've had 
more experience with this" 

Amid muffled laughter, Henry, 
who surprised legislators and 
constitutents alike by trying the

cases, but affects some less than

step tnward total legalization, 
others said the stale would be

led the bailie against the bill, 
called the measure a "con- 
tradiction" when, he said, "We 
make it a felony to grow it, 
transport it or sell it. then say it's 
ok lu use it " 

Agreeing with him was Sen 
Halberl Harvill, D-Clarksville, 
retired president of Autin Peay 
State University, "I've worked 
with young people all my life," 
Harvill said, "and this is the best 
pushers' bill It will put more 
marijuana in schools and 

Sen Robert Byrd, D-Cleveland, 
like several other senators, were 
quick to disavow any contact with 
the drug, bul pushed for the bill's 
passage. "I don't advocate it 
I've never touched it It's still 
against the law " 

"I urge you to consider the real 
crux of the bill," Byrd continued, 
"This bill will set a standard 
punishment Right now a judge in 
one place will give a full sentence 
of U months and 29 days and a 
fine while another will get off 
with a suspended sentence" 
Byrd was sponsor of a similar bill 
lasi year 

Sen Person, who served on a 
committee to study the drug and 
possible related legislation, told 
committee member's, "If you 
want a drug-oriented society, and 
you want to permeate K-through- 
12 with marijuana in addition to 
colleges, then you vote for this 

Ford told senators that no 
where in the bill was there any 
statement that would make it 
more permissive "It only 
reduces the penalties. This bill 
simply civilizes the punishment. 
It is in jail where the marijuana 
user becomes a criminal," 

Voting for Ihe bill were Sens, 
Victor Ashe. R-Knoxville; 
William Baird, D-Lebanon,

Rep Tommy Burks, D- 
Monterey. argued against the 
bill, sponsored by Rep Charlie 
Ashford, R-Memphis, saying that 
passage of the bill was "one more 
move toward doing away with 
drunk driving laws" The state 
now has a provision allowing a 

restricted license to be issued to 
go to and from work 

Burks pointed out that there 
was much abuse of present 
statutes in the state, particularly 
in one metropolitan county He 
said, "A state highway

Budget Increase

NASHVILLE - An increase of 
S515 000 over Gov, Ray Blanlon's 
budget request of $109,882,000 for 
Ihe UT system has been 
recommended following a study 
made by a budget subcommittee 
of the Senate Education Com- 

According lo a report filed 
Wednesday, the increase in- 
cluded an additional $350,000 for 
the UT School of Dentistry and a 
$165,000 increase for the UT 
system administration. 

The $109-8 million allotted in 
the Governor's budget was 
somewhat less Ihan the

nessee Higher Education 
Commission UT had originally 
requested $116,785, before in- 
flation The THEC and Gover- 
nor's requested budget figures

The UT Dentistry School,

recommended lo receive an 

additional $350,000 Dr Al Far- 
mer, chancellor of Ihe UT Center 
for Ihe Health Sciences, told the

The budget study group also 
recommended an additional 
$165,000 lor the UT system ad-

salary increase omitted in the 
earlier budget request.

Outrageous Expenses 

Have you tried anything new in 
music lately? If you are not one 
who enjoys variety and ver- 
satility in music, then the new 
Emerson, Lake and Palmer 
album, Works : Volume One, 
probably wouldn't be on your 
most unated list. If. however, you 
appriciale various types of music 
you will find WORKS to be a very 
exciting and rewarding musical 

Works: Volume One is an 
newly released, two record 
album on which each individual 
member of Emerson, Lake, and 
Palmer has his own side. On thai 
side he may display his talents 
and diversify his tastes. 

Side One features Keith 
Emerson on a classical piece 
which he himself has composed. 
He is supported by the London 
Philharmonic Orchestra, one of 
two orchestras appearing on this 
album. His selection is "Piano 
Concerto No. I". The first 
reaction to Emerson's concerto is 
to return it to the record store 
claiming that the record was a 
defect. However, given a second 
chance, the genius of Keith 
Emerson is capable of enticing 
one into becoming an ardent 
Emerson fan. The Second 
movement (Andante Molto 
Cantabile) is especially 

If you can't get off on classical 
music you may find something on 
Side Two more suiting your 
tastes. This side will be 
especially interesting to those 
who enjoy interpreting lyrics. 
Featuring Greg Lake, this side 
thrives on a variety of musical 
styles and bewildering lyrics, 
with the ego-tripping "C'est La 
Vie", the haunting "Hallowed Be 
Thy Name", the Dylanish 
"Nobody Loves You Like I Do", 
and the absorbing "Closer to 

.Side Three features Carl 
Palmer's ability with percussion. 
The side opens with "The Enemy 
God Dances With Black Spirits", 
an excerpt from the second 
movement of Prokofieff's "The 
Scythian Suite" Joe Walsh joins 
Carl Palmer and Keith Emerson 
with some Scat vocals on the 
Blues number "L,A Nights" A 
bit of jazz work enters ELP's 
WORKS in the Palmer composed 
"New Orleans", and for a change 
of pace Carl Palmer uses the 
vibraphone while James Blades 
plays the marimba in a soothing 
sendition of J S- Bach's "Two 
Part Invention in D Mmor", The 
side concludes with "Food For 
Your Soul" and a song familiar to 
any ELP fan. "Tank" 

Side Four brings the band 
members together with a moving 
interpretation of Aaron Copland's 
song, "Fanfare for the Common 
Man", which is performed with 
the power that is unique in 
Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. The 
grand finale "Pirates" is an 
overwhelmingly powerful 
compostition. which is charac- 
teristic of Keith Emerson's 
music, and the background music 
of the Orchestra de I'Opera de 
Paris is more than ample on this 

It may be that this album is the 
result of a near breakup of 
several years ago If so. more 
bands ought to seriously consider 
breaking up. Or maybe all that is 
needed is for more groups to let 
their individual members expand 
as Emerson, Lake, and Palmer 
have done here. 

Even with all of the fulfilling 
and powerful music on Works; 
Volume One, the gighlight of the 
album is in the title. Volume One. 
There is more of this quality 
music to come. 

( )ne of the most thrilling things 
about choosing a college is 
receiving the catalogs and 
bulletins from assorted colleges 
and reading them. Isn't it a 
blast'' ( I hope you catch my 
satirical drift,* Anyway, while 
reading the Milligan College 
Bulletin you come across the nice 
bold heading of EXPENSES, and 
you proceed to turn the page 
quickly because you do not really 
care to think loo much about 
EXPENSES, But if you will lake 
lime you will notice a little 
asterisk beside EXPENSES 
When you find the asterisk you 
see the explanation, "Subject to 
change without notice" After 
reading you get terminally ill 
because you know the EX- 
PENSES will not get terminally 
ill Rather, You know they will 
grow rapidly like the cancer that 
makes one terminally ill. This 
doesn't mean that EXPENSES 
are going to kill you, but then 
again, they may put you or your 
parents into the financial hospital 
for a long period of recovery. 

What does all this leat to? 
Obviously, since the economy is 
supposedly on the rise, it only 
follows that tuition will also be on 
the rise. That's the way people 
think. If the economy is on the 
rise then people think they should 
be making more money. Since 
the people want more money then 
the producers figure they have to 
charge more to cover the rising 
cost of operation. (Our theology 
of capitalism is great, isn't it?> 
Since tuition has been raised ever 
since they started charging it, it 
only follows that there will be 
another tuition hike next year, 
(Why slop the growth of 
something? ) But how can they do 
this to US'' My knees have been 
raw for the past four years 
begging for mercy al the feet of 
the business office, while it still 
twists me like a corkscrew to get 

its money, tor pound of fleshi 
The complaint is that we, 
students, parents, relatives, pet 
dog, etc.. are lired of looking at 
larger sums of money at the 
bottom of our bills every lime we 
sland in line at registration. It is 
true that it lakes a lot of money to 
run a college, but isn't it also true 
that it takes students to have a 

Maybe I should interject a few 
facts thai we all can drop our 
jaws at. This past school year, 
(76-77). it cost a person $1,471,00 a 
semester for tuition, room, and 
board, (carrying a 12-17 hour 
class load). That is without tax. 
fees, and special charges. To 
some that may seem too much 
and to others it may not seem 
enough. Allow me to do some 
comparing In comparison with 
last year, tuition itself went up 
13 98 percent over last year, wilh 
the combined tuition, room, and 
board, (T,R,B^ going up 12.37 
percent, I certainly hope we all 
made 12 percent more at our 
summer jobs last summer than 
the year before. 

Lei me make another com- 
parison I am a senior, so 1 
compared the differences from 
when I would have started, (73- 
74), to this year, (76-77), Over 
that four year period. T,R,B went 
up a total of 54.35 percent, with 
tuition itself going up 63 percent. 
That means T,R,B has gone up 
$518.00 over the last four years, 
quite a large sum of money. The 
biggest jump was between 73-74. 
74-75 when T.R.B. went up 25.39 
percent, tuition going up 27 
percent. From 74-75 to 75-76 the 
increase was only 12.59 percent 
tuition wise. And, as you can see 
form the figures, there was an 
increase this year, so you can be 
pretty well assured as to whal 
that will mean for next year 

Here is something else to think 
about. The school raised the 

WNDERFUL Day?'- Well... 

When the average MiHigan 
College Student thinks about a 
"Wonderful-Day," he or she 
usually Ihinks of a day toward the 
end of the second semester in 
which all regularly scheculed 
activities are cancelled and new 
ones are subst'' ted in their 
place- These ne'., activities vary 
from year to year, but usually 
include such old favorites as a 
picnic on Anglin, eating ice 
cream, playing softball. sleeping 
in, or just some good old playing 
around Every once in a while 
there is a non-required, special 
interest activity planned also, in 
which students can attend rap 
sessions or seminars on a down- 
to-earth subject like Ecology (no 
pun intended!) But has anyone 
ever stopped to think exactly 
what the reasons are for this kind 
of organized chaos? Surely it's 
not because the faculty enjoys 
coming in to school in the mor- 
ning and finding that their 
classes are called off. or because 
the administration enjoys coming 
in to school in the morning and 
finding that their faculty is 
crawling off! Of course not I 

Being a former bad guy and 
planner of this activity (1 am a 
former Student Union Board 
Member), I would like to add 
some insight and possible 
clarification into this question. 
For as long as I have been 
involved with this activity, it has 
been my impression that 
"Wonderful-Day" was designed 
to allow for the constructive 
release of tension and 
frustrations that are built up in 
the weeks prior to finals week- It 
is a day of relaxation for the 
students — a time to set aside 
worries about grades, tests, 
deadlines, and finals and to 
worry about more trivial matters 
such as who's going to win the 
Softball game or how many 
scoops of ice cream can be fit into 
one (Jish. However, it seems more 
and more evident that both the 
students and the faculty and 
administration of Milligan are 
confused as to the purpose of 
"Wonderful-Day" Instead of a 
day designed with the students in 
mind for the release of mounting 
tensions, it has become in the 
minds of many a day designed 

without the faculty and ad- 
ministration in mind and for no 
other reason except to let the 
students out of class. This school 
of thought is quite contrary to the 
original ideas that founded 
"Wonderful-Day" and needs to 
be cleared up. 

First of all. after having been 
threatened many times within 
the past few weeks — often to 
within an inch of my family life — 
I would like to answer the 
question, "Why does it have to he 
a secret?" The answer to this lies 
in the purpose of "Wonderful- 
Day" itself. It is not. contrary to 
popular student opinion, because 
Bill Woolard and his cronies on 
the Student Union Board enjoy 
playing games and keeping 
secrets. "Wonderful-Day" was 
originated in order to relieve the 
many tensions of the end of the 
second semester How could it 
possibly serve its purpose if the 
student body is informed in ad- 
vance and given the opporrlunity 
to plan the day away by calching- 
up with their studies, not doing 
their homework for that day, etc? 
It could Not. So to all those who 

have asked this former Student 
Union Board emeber the 
inevitable question. "When is 
Wonderful Wednesday?" I give 
the inevitable answer, eat beans! 
Secondly, after hearing of the 
faculty's recent vote to recom- 
mend the abolishment of 
"Wonderful-Day" I wonder if 
anyone realizes the purpose 
behind this activity anymore. 
Granted, the faculty vote only 
passed by a plurality (14 out of 
42), but a faculty recom- 
mendation does represent faculty 
opinion, does it not? The only 
point that I am trying to make is 
that this activity is supposed to be 
student-oriented The growing 
opinion these days (even though 
it may only be carried by a 
minority), is that "Wonderful- 
Day" was established during a 
time of student unrest and riots; 
that it is now outdated and there 
is no tension anymore. I beg to 
differ. Of course, we're not 
burning down buildings anymore, 
but anyone who has ever taken a 
final exam or has walked through 
a dormitory the night t>efore a 
humanities exam and heard the 

by John Robertson 

tuition 63 percent over the past 
four years I wonder how many 
parents have had raises in pay 
that total anywhere near that 
amount over the past four years. 
That means that if you were 
making S15,lX« in 1974, then you 
would be making $24,450 in 1977 I 
can see the possibility of a 30 
percent increase, which would 
make it around $"20,000 for 1977, 
but twice that much? Who are 
they trying to put on? How many 
of us students who work during 
the summer have seen that much 
of an increase over the past four 
years? But. no doubt, the cost of 
living has gone up a great deal 
over the past few years, but has 
the school really felt the crunch? 
It looks more to me like the 
parents are the people feeling the 
bit because everyone is 
demanding double what their 
increases have been. 

In spite of all this, it is 
inevitable that there will be an 
increase of the tuition next year. I 
only hope that you all feel like you 
are getting your money's worth. I 
also hope that the school 
remembers that it does not exist 
for itself, but for its students and 
their education. Too many times 
small schools in somewhat of a 
bind find themselves doing just 
that. There is a lot of respon- 
sibility involved on both parts, 
The school has to make its quality 
of education good enough to keep 
up its enrollment. The students 
are responsible to themselves for 
striving to get as much and as 
best an education as they can. 
Responsibility is a big word, 
weither it means signing a paper 
that says we will pay Iha! much 
or whether the school gives lis the 
best it can In both instances, I 
hope both sides live up to their 

by Mark Richardson 

blood curdling screams, knows 
that there's tension. When I first 
found out about "Wonderful- 
Day" and was told the reasons 
behind it, I applauded the faculty 
and administration for their 
insight and concern for the 
students. But now I wonder if 
we've forgotten why we bother to 
have it at ail, I agree with many 
on the faculty and administration 
who believe that this activity is a 
nuisnace and a bother, but I don't 
think we ought to do away with it 
— 1 believe it's worth the trouble. 
If we really t>elieve that student- 
oriented activities are important, 
then we must realize that 
sometimes small sacrifices must 
be made in order to achieve that 

In summing up, I would like to 
say that this is only one man's 
opinion and that 1 have meant it 
as constructive criticism. . , I 
don't claim to be right. But I 
firmly believe that if we are ever 
to have another Wonderful 
Wednesday, Terrific Tuesday, or 
whatever, that we need to ( unlike 
this year) consider the meaning 
behind it before we plan or 
participate in it.

Resurrection Needed? 

II ib not uncommon to hear an 
accusation saying that the church 
and her efforts are vain. 
Observers whose minds reject 
the resurrection of Christ find 
little reason for the church, 
Similair thoughts were con- 
fronted by Paul in Corinth and 
much can be drawn from his 
response in the first letter to the 
Christians at Corinth, Chapter 15, 
which has current application. 
The Corinthian Christians 
received this recommendation 
from Paul: "Be steadfast, un- 
movable,'" Of course this ad- 
monition was directed toward the 
faith of those at Corinth, but, 
comtemporary Christians should 
heed Paul's adivce as well Vet, 
in a shifting world, stability is 
almost unheard of There is little 
question that our world is one of 
rapid change and poor foun- 
dations. For example, the price 
■ of coffee, the gold standard, and 
the whims of Idi Amin are quite 
unpredictable. The major net- 
work anchormen report to 
restless ears the news of kid- 
nappings, hijackings, nuclear 
arms races and biological 
warfare stockpiles. Were Paul 
with us his Easter message to 
Christendom would no doubt 
include this Corinthian 
suggestion: be steadfast, un- 
mov cable. 

Since all else will fail, the only 
source of stability is the gospel 
which we have received and 
wherein we stand. That good 
news reports of the historical 
death, burial, and resurrection of 
Jesus, the Christ Unfortunately, 
many have switched off this news 
and have chosen to drift on the 
futile winds of worldly 
suggestions. Those of us who are 
being saved must hold fast to the 
gospel. This implies that an in- 
tensive effort needs to be ex- 
pended by Christians to cling to 
the gospel, for indifference in the 
church will lead to superficiality 
and vanity Christians must 
demonstrate the stability arising 
from the gospel to a tumultuous 

It follows that Christians must 
always abound in the work of the 
Lord, Generally that work en- 
trails a continual process of 

There is not much to be said 
about Franco Zeffirelli's 
television movie "Jesus of 
Nazareth." Either you watched 
it. or you did not. And. if you 
watched it, you either liked it. or 
you did not like it because it did 
not follow precisely the Scrip- 
tures as you understand them 

Tecnically. the movie was 
outstandingly directed and 
filmed, but, as usual with movies 
dealing with the subject of Christ. 
it was the content, specifically 
the script, which caused many 
people to turn their backs upon

calling the church into being and 
building it up, Paul received the 
good message about Christ and 
delivered it to the Corinthians 
and many more individuals His 
gospel ;s always received, never 
invented by men; so. faith is 
dependent on the transmission of 
faith. Receiving the gospel is in 
conjunction with passing it on; 
thus, the church becomes the 
repository and transmitter of the 
good news. If the church fails to 
transmit, and often translate, the 

When asking the question "is 
the resurrection an essential 
ingredient of the Christian 
faith?", an answer of "yes" can 
mean .two different things. 
First , one might be saying that 
it is essential for one to believe 
that Jesus, a man of history, was 
crucified, buried, and 

resurrected on the third day, as 
orthodox creeds would insist. On 
the other hand, one might be 
saying that it is essential for a 
person to experience resurrec- 
tion within his own life — apart 
from the historical resurrection 
of Jesus, a resurrection from 
individual sin and guilt to a new 
way of life. The first instance will 
be called the "historical 

gospel to the world about her, resurrection" and the second an 

faith will disappear Abounding 
in our work for the Lord is the 
only insurance against the 
disappearance of the faith 
Vitality in the church is essential

community was vitally alive

my goal to show the primacy of

Consequently, it is possible for experiences because they cannot 

us to know that the work that we be fit into his mind-set Our mind- 

accomplish for Christ is not in 
vain. Had Christ not been 
resurrected our faith in Him 
would be vain, empty. But Christ 
has been raised from the dead. 
Christ did become the initiator of 
the resurrection of the dead so 

sets are determined by our ex- 
periences; our experiences are 
not determined valid or invalid 
by our mind-sets. 

One must not, therefore, 
necessarily reject the

bnng victory to us and others ^^^^^ ^^at it didn't really matter 

■vho respond to Christ. Especially ^^ ^^ ^^^ ^j. ^^e other; I 

during this Easter season, but 
also throughout the year, if the 
shifting world does not see and 
experience our vitality, it may 
mistake our victory for vanity. 
As Paul would say. may it not be! 

wanted to know what train was 
coming to take ME away. 

Indeed, it is not a problem of, 
evidence. Although the 
pre lability of Chrisfs' 
resurrection is still a hotly 

debated issue, should there t>e 
enough evidence accumulated to 
prove beyond a shadow of a doubt 
thai Jesus actually rose from the 
dead, we would still have the 
problem of relating that 
historical event to one's 
existential situation *lncidently, 
simply because Jesus might have 
risen from the dead does not 
prove that he is the son of God; it 
merely proves that he had the* 
power to overcome death. ^ 
Christianity has often t>een called 
an historical religion, but in what 
ser-^fe is if historical? Orthodox 
Ch: istians would answer that 
God's revelation in Christ is the 
basis of Christina! ty's 
historicity; others, like myself, 
would argue that tht history of 
the inilividual is '-.^li^- is most 

Kierkegaard's dictim that 
there can be nc believer at second 
hand is extremely important. If 
one insists that a BELIEF in 
some past event, such as the 
resurrection of Christ, is most 
importani, he is a believer at 
second hand, relying on the ex- 
periences of others rather than 
upon his own unique experience 
of Ufe A believer at first hand is 
one who puts his faith not in 
someone else's resurrection, 
even if that be the resurrection of 
the son of God, but in his own 
existential resurrection. This is 
[he history that matters — one's 
own history. 

Buddha informs us to be lamps 
unto our own paths, Jesus insists 
that we not point to his cross, but 
rather that we take up our OWN 
crosses daily. Herein lies our 
salvation, here we are born 
again, James, in his epistle, show 
us his faith by his works, not by 
what he believes to be 
historically true. It is easy to 
BELIEVE in some fact of 
history, such as the resurrection; 
it is difficult to MAKE your own 

What should concern 
Christians, then, is not whether 
Christ did indeed arise
