1985-1986 VOLUME LVIII 
Union College, Barbourville, Kentucky 



Dr. Lester Woody 

"To get an A in this class, you almost have to be able to rewrite the King James 
Version of the Bible!" These ominous words greeted one student when he walked 
into his first English class with Dr. Lester G. Woody. Although Dr. Woody's ("Doc" 
to his friends) bark may seem like fair warning to his bite, those close to him know 
that underneath his gruff exterior is an affectionate and witty man. Not many 
professors receive an anonymous Christmas poem and stocking labeled only from 
"elves"! For each day of the twelve days of Christmas some little elf snuck into the 
C wing of Stevenson Hall and placed a present in Dr. Wood's stocking. Dr. Woody 
is still trying to figure that one out! Again, on Valentine's Day someone snuck in C 
wing and left poetry for Dr. Woody to identify. 

It's no surprise that Dr. Woody is the beneficiary of such pranks. He has taught 
English at Union College for over twelve years and made many friends. Dr. Woody 
came to Union College in 1974 as Assistant Professor of English, promoted to 
Associate Professor of English in 1976 and in 1980 tenure was granted. In 1982, he 
was promoted to the rank of full Professor of English. For ten years Dr. Woody was 
the advisor for Gamma Beta Phi, a national honor society, and in 1984 was awarded 
a plaque for outstanding services to Gamma Beta Phi. Among other honors, he was 
named "truly a man for all seasons" as the Homecoming Honoree in 1985. He also 
received the Student Senate Distinguished Professor Award for the 1975-76 
academic year as well as for 1982-83. 

Before coming to Union College, Dr. Woody taught at St. Christopher's School in 
Richmond, Virginia and at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He 
worked many years as the Director of Advertising Copy at Miller & Rhoads 
Department Store in Richmond. He served as Instructor of noncredit courses in 
Modern Poetry and Music Appreciation at the University of Virginia Extension in 
Richmond and as Instructor of Graduate Seminar of Retail Advertising at Virginia 
Commonwealth University. 

Dr. Woody came to Union College with a diverse background and has shared his 
knowledge with students and faculty over the last twelve years as a professor at 
Union. Part of sharing his knowledge has included being the advisor to the Union 
College annual, the Stespean yearbook. Dr. Woody has been the advisor for four 
years. During the 1986-87 academic year. Dr. Woody will be teaching part-time 
before retiring. His "bark" will certainly be missed at Union. In recognition of Dr. 
Woody's devotion to Union College and students, the Stespean staff respectfully 
dedicates this 1986 edition to him. 

The format of the 1986 
Stespean is similiar to 
that of the previous 
year. We have 
attempted to present 
coverage of events 
according to the yearly 
calendar. Therefore, the 
book is divided into 
sections for Fall, Winter 
and Spring.

Not only was the Welcome Back Dance, sponsored by 
Student Center Board, crowded, it also gave the many new 
students a chance to meet, mingle or just stand and enjoy. 
The crowd tells it all! 

Club Fair Day, held every year 
outside the student center, gives 
new students a chance to learn 
about the clubs and organizations at 
Union. The free popcorn and drinks 
that Student Senate provided also 
helped turn the event into one of

Something new at Union! Yes — Olafur Gudmundson, who 
hails from Reykjavik, Iceland, expresses some of the differences 
in his lifestyle and that of America. "People are very friendly. 
We are different from people here because you all express 
your feelings. We don't. If someone gets angry here, he shouts 
curse words and probably beats somebody up. Back home if 
someone gets mad, he locks himself into his room and keeps it 
to himself. It is funny hearing the boys in the dorm talk about 
everything. I don't do that. I keep everything to myself."

Brad Edgington 

When I first came to Union College I thought to myself 
"How did 1 get myself into this mess?!" After a few 
weeks, however, I got to know more people and found 
there were quite a few more nice people than 1 had at 
first thought. There is something about Union College 
that does not let go. (I think it's the financial aid office.) 
Although some people complain about the food, I like 
it. I also like the high ratio of girls to the guys here. 
What I like best about Union is the sense of caring 
among the faculty, staff and students. Since we see each 
other almost every day, we are able to get to know 
each other better than if we were at a large university. 
The professors do not push but are concerned about 
the students education, too. They are more like co- 
learners, because they learn from the students. At first, 
things seemed pretty dead around here, but this year 
there have been more activities on campus. So, 1 think 
I'll stick around a little while longer! 











"Don't draw attention to yourself 
for tfie wrong reasons," our new 
Dean of Students is fond of saying. 
He practices what he preaches. In 
the three months he's been on 
campus, he's drawn attention to 
himself for all the right reasons. 

By his highly visible presence among 
us and the manner of his 
involvement and interaction with 
students, he has rapidly established 
himself as beneficial to our 
community on a number of levels. 

Our attention is drawn to him as 
friend, educator, entertainer, student 

He does many things, most of them 
well, and, in his versatility, he brings 
a welcome perspective to the 
Deanery. Quickly he has become 
Dean For Students. 

As important to us for what he does 
not do as Dean, as he is for his 
positive actions in our behalf, Mr. 
Ed does not (like one of his 
predecessors) lurk in bushes to spy 

on students, or pop up, Polaroid in 
hand, at the slightest hint of a 

Instead he goes efficiently and 
effectively about the business of 
learning what Union's students want 
in activities, assistance, housing, and 
the million-and-one other 
components of his job, and he 
responds well to these and many 
other needs. All of this he performs 
with good-natured and unfaltering 
dedication, in his own quiet but 
forceful style. 

"My goal," he smiles, "is to slip 
through here without anyone even 
knowing I've been around." 

Sorry, Mr. D., but that's one goal 
you won't attain here. You've 
already made your mark on Union 
College. We KNOW you're here, 
and we're GLAD.

#1 Union vs. Maryville 

Union College fell in their season 
opener against Maryville College. 
Nevertheless, the Bulldogs exploded in 
the second quarter to score 20 points 
in less than three minutes. Union 
scored 14 points in twelve seconds on 
a sixty-nine yard pass from Doug 
Collins to wide receiver Tommy Greer 
and a 27 yard run by James Fletcher 
after a Maryville fumble following a 
kickoff. Union scored again on its next 
possession. Collins passed 31 yards to 
C.J. Westerman, Fletcher ran for four 
and Collins got the touchdown from 
the two. Despite the good job by 
various players of the young Bulldog 
team, Union just could not hold on for 
the win as Maryville outscored them

#2 Union vs. Lambuth

Below: Union vs. Maryville 

The Bulldogs won their first game on 
home turf in fourty-three years as they 
rolled over Lambuth College. The Dogs 
went ahead early as nose guard 
Burley Burkhart hit the Eagles 
quarterback in the end zone for a 
safety and James Fletcher ran the 
kickoff back 75 yards for a touchdown. 
C.J. Westerman scored on a forty one 
yard pass from Doug Collins, and then 
Fletcher ran 37 yards into the endzone. 
Following that remarkable play Tommy 
Greer caught a 38 yard pass to bring 
the score to 28-6, Dogs advantage. 
Westerman and Greer both caught 
from Collins in the third bringing the 
final score to Union 45-Lambuth 9. 

#3 Union vs. Knoxville 

Knoxville led 3-0 after the first 
quarter and went up 10-0 in the 
second. Doug Collins completed 14 
of 27 passes for 161 yards, hit 
James Fletcher with an 11 yard 
touchdown pass to make it 10-7 at 
halftime. Knoxville took a 24-7 third 
quarter lead but Union rallied again 
behind the play of freshmen Jeff 
Rogers who took over when Collins 
was injured. He threw touchdown 
passes of 8 and 38 yards to Tommy 
Greer and Fletcher respectively, and 
that, combined with Mark Mounce's 
32 yard field goal, cut the deficit to 
24-23. Knoxville later stretched the 
lead to 29-23 on a safety and field 
goal, winning the game. 

Below: 85 — John Carraker 

#4 Union vs. Earlham 

Union upped their record to 2-2 by 
winning this game against Earlham 
on home ground. The Bulldog 
defense was alive and thriving as 
they sacked Earlham College's 
practically defenseless quarterback 
eight times. John Luttrell had 19 
tackles. In the second quarter, Doug 
Collins carried for one yard and the 
touchdown, and Mark Mounce 
kicked the extra point to make the 
score 7-0. However, Earlham quickly 
answered with a one yard run, tieing 
the score 7-7. In the third quarter 
Earlham crossed the Union endzone 
for the last time, bringing the 
Earlham final game total to 13. 
Earlham's extra point was deflected. 
Collins then delivered an 81 yard 
pass to Tim Miniard and 
Mark"Automatic" Mounce kicked 
the extra point as Union slipped 
ahead 14-13. With two minutes and 
42 seconds left, Collins carried five 
yards for six points plus Mounce's 
extra point to lay the score to rest; 
Union 21 — Earlham 13. Other key 
plays contributing to the victory 
included a crucial kick blocked by 
Albert Pellegrino who ran it for a 
first down and a quarterback sack 
by Darwin Vickery which forced a 
fumble and the recovery by Burley

#5 Union vs. Kentucky Wesleyan 

The Bulldogs hit the field with every 
intention of claiming for their own 
the coveted John Wesley Trophy 
which has been in Owensboro, the 
home of its Panther holders, since 
its inauguration a year ago. Mark 
Mounce put a cap on the first 
quarter with a field goal. Doug 
Collins carried the offense into the 
game and launched a 16 yard 
touchdown run by James Fletcher 
and a 22 yard gallop by Vince 
Turpin. This placed the score at a 
comfortable 17-0 lead before the 
Panthers could connect with a 12 
yard pass to score. Minutes later, 
Collins hurled a 35 yard pass to 
C.J. Westerman to put the score at 
24-7. But with only nine seconds left 
in the half, Collins was hit as he 
attempted to release the ball, the 
pass was intercepted in the endzone 
and Kentucky Wesleyan ran it back 
100 yards for a touchdown as the 
Bulldogs lead faltered to 24-14. In 
the second half an inspired Panther 
team drove 98 yards to lock a tie. 
Coach Bob Shackelford was very 
proud of his Bulldogs commenting 
that "We felt we could have won 
the game and the team played with 
tremendous dedication. They gave 
100 percent. We went into that 
game as a two-TD underdog. We 
are not happy with the tie but we 
are satisfied. We gave all the fans a 
good show."

#6 Union vs. Wilmington 

The Bulldogs traveled to Wilmington, Ohio, where they 
led the nationally ranked Wilmington team until the 
fourth quarter which ended with Union on the short end 
of the final score. Bulldog Honorable Mention Ail- 
American linebacker John Luttrell returned an 
intercepted pass for a romp of 33 yards into the 
endzone to put the Bulldogs up 14-6. Wilmington 
answered with a 25 yard field goal and a touchdown 
pass but James Fletcher came to the rescue with a 22 
yard scoring run to place the score at 21-15, Union's 
advantage. In the fourth quarter Wilmington managed to 
throw for three touchdown passes to slip by the 
Bulldog's for a victory of 29-21. Coach Shackelford was 
proud of the showing the team made against the 
nationally ranked team. "Wilmington had to come from 
behind to beat us and that speaks well of the effort we 
made" he said. 

#1 Union vs. Emory and Henry 

The Bulldogs lost an upsetting game where all the 
action seemed to be in the first half. At the end of the 
first quarter, the Wasps were ahead 13-0. It was also in 
this game that Union lost the help of QB Doug Collins 
but Albert Pellegrino stepped in and took the controls 
with some success against the vicious Wasp defense. In 
the second quarter the Bulldogs were able to cut the 
Wasp margin to a slim three points with a 33 yard field 
goal by Mark Mounce and a nine yard pass for a TD 
from Pellegrino to Richard Rand. The extra point was 
good, putting the Bulldogs back in the ballgame. 
However, the Wasps again scored and placed 
themselves up 20-10. The sun did not shine in the 
second half, nor did either teams offense. When the 
final buzzer blew, the score was still Emory and Henry 
20 - Union 10. 

#8 Union vs. Cumberland 

The Bulldogs scalped the Cumberland College Indians 
34-12 for the bragging rights of the valley. The football 
battle of the mountains got off to a good start with 
Mark "Automatic" Mounce kicking a 22 yard field goal; 
nevertheless, Cumberland came back with a 46 yard 
pass for a quick six points. The Indians momentum held 
on for one more TD on a one yard run but the Bulldogs 
took over from there on and held Cumberland scoreless 
for the rest of the game. In the first half, James 
Fletcher scored on a four yard run and Bubba Perkins 
intercepted a Cumberland pass and romped for 41 
yards into the endzone which put the Dogs up at the 
half by a score of 18-12. In the second half, Greg 
Thomas scored from nine yards out and Albert 
Pellegrino scored a 51 yard quarterback sneak. Mark 
Mounce put the icing on the cake with a 41 yard field 
goal as the score ended with Union on top by a margin 
of 34-12. James Fletcher led the Bulldog rushing attack 
with 29 carries for 159 yards. Albert Pellegrino came in 
a close second with 129 yards on 14 carries. Greg 
Thomas rolled up 75 yards on 12 carries and Vince 
Turpin checked in with seven carries for 33 yards.

#9 Union vs. Defiance 

The 37 degree temperature along with the extremely 
muddy field and the gusty winds did not deter the 
Bulldogs in this victory. Union held a halftime lead of 9- 
7 thanks to James Fletcher's touchdown and a Mark 
Mounce ficldgoal. Defiance's only lead came in the first 
quarter when they passed for a 24 yard TD pass. In the 
third quarter Fletcher galloped 45 yards for his second 
TD of the game and Albert Pellegrino ran for 19 yards 
and yet another Bulldog touchdown. Pellegrino rushed 
16 times for 85 yards. Coach Bob Shackelford 
commented that "We made some good plays. Our 
defense did an excellent job despite some really rough 

#10 Union vs. Tennessee Wesleyan 

Union won the last game of the season against 
Tennessee Wesleyan by a good margin. James Fletcher 
rushed for 220 yards on 33 carries and scored two 
touchdowns to lead Union to a 38-16 victory over 
Tennessee Wesleyan at their home turf. Fletcher has 
rushed for more than 1,000 yards for the season, 
ending it with a total of 1,055 yards. "He was awesome 
today," assistant head coach John Ross said after the 
team's third straight victory. Quarterback Albert 
Pellegrino's one yard run in the first quarter gave Union 
a 6-0 lead. After Tennessee Wesleyan went ahead 7-6, 
Fletcher gave Union the lead for good when he trotted 
55 yards into the end zone for a 12-7 lead. C.J. 
Westerman's six yard TD reception and two field goals 
by Mark Mounce increased Union's lead to 25-10 in the 
third quarter. Following a 66 yard punt return by 
Tennessee Weslcyan's Buck Davis that cut the lead to 
25-16, Fletcher returned the ensuing kickoff 97 yards 
for a TD. Union ended its second year of competition. 
"This is it," Ross said, "It's good for the kids that we 
won the last three in a row. We're starting to learn to 
do the things that you have to do to win, so we're 
pretty pleased that we kind of wrapped it up in strong

Good Doctor," directed, designed and produced by Rebecca Pettys. 
Somon's play derives from some rather obscure short stories by Anton 
Chekhov, the Russian playwright who is best known for his dramas "The 
Seagull" and "The Cherry Orchard." "The Good Doctor" is unconventional 
in structure, being a series of 1 1 short scenes rather than in the usual 
manner of division into acts. Each scene is unrelated to any other, given 
coherence through The Writer, who is apparently Chekhov. The Writer 
speaks directly to the audience, in various ways indicating that the next 

scene illustrates his developnent of 
an idea for a story. The scenes 
alternate between farce and quasi- 
sentimental situations. To think of 
'The Good Doctor" as "only" 11 
short, assorted scenes is to belie its 
inherent difficulties as a stage 
production. It was actually the most 
ambitious production that director 
Rebecca Pettys has undertaken at 
the college, what with her largest 
cast yet, the necessity to create 
unity out of diversity, its technical 
problems, and the relatively meager 
facilities of the Rector Little Theatre.

the race for the best carved pumpkin. The more people, the more the 
competitive spirit filled the night air. Dean de Rosset gave away hats 
for the occasion and after the contest, pizza was served in the snack 
bar. Sponsored by the Student Senate Board. 

Come out.

These guys can be seen all over Union campus in classes as well 
as, in the case of Ron Vanover and Jerry Pennington — on stage. 







They say a woman's work is 
never done. That is the case 
of these fifteen hard working 
ladies who play very important

keeping some of its top 
officials on their toes. U.C. 
students seldom come in

women play an important role 
in helping students "keep it

a tough job, but somebody has 
got to do it, and Union would 
not get by without a "woman's

acuity Arrest Day was a great way to relieve mid-term exam pressure! 
For a mere $2 per student, Phi Beta Lambda sent Sheriff John White 
and Deputy Dennis Miracle to the classrooms rounding up professors. 
Ella Kay Hensley (opposite page and below) dared her students to 
arrest her! Among others, Paul Stephenson (below) and Pete Moore 
were some of the "criminals" rounded up during the day. One 
student, Leslie Long (below), was handcuffed by Deputy Miracle to the 
jail. The convicted were fed coffee and donuts. PBL came up with a 
great idea and fund-raiser, collecting over $200!

first came to Union as a visiting assistant professor. The 
following year he accepted the position of Assistant 
Professor of Mathematics and Physics. In 1979 he was 
promoted to Professor of Physics and was named 
chairman of Natural Science Division. Dr. Chilukuri feels 
good about the science department because "We have 
excellent lab facilities." However, he wishes there were 
"more students to use the equipment." Dr. Chilukuri 
has accomplished much! He earned his B.S., M.S. and 
Ph.D. degrees in physics from Andhra University in 
Waltair, India. After receiving his Ph.D., he went to 
New York State University where he was a Post 
Doctoral Fellow and later a visiting professor. Dr. 
Chilukuri in his busy schedule enjoys hobbies such as 
tennis, jogging, playing bridge, listening to classical 
music, photography and metaphysics. To add, his 
greatest pleasure is spending time with his wife and 
three children. In addition. Dr. Chilukuri states "The 
quest of science is to understand the workings of the 
universe and our place in it."

The Union College Singers presented the annual Union College Christmas 
Festival on the evenings of December 5-8. The performances were given 
in front of a crowd of more than 400. The evening of feasting, drama, 
and song was begun as an annual event four years ago with increasing 
success every year since. This year the evening entertainments were 
hosted by Rev. Jim Powell, Union's campus minister. The Master of 
Revels, as Rev. Powell was entitled, had the pleasure of introducing the 
Union College choir under the direction of Dr. Randall Sheets and acting 
as master of ceremonies Dr. Betty Stroud, acting head of the Music and 
Fine Arts Department, also performed. Ed LeMaster, Union College 
registrar, joined in the fun as The Lord Mayor of London. The 1985 
Christmas Festival was the "effort of a big team of faculty, staff, students 
and many of our neighbors in the community" said Dr. Randall Sheets.

Beverly Moore is a unique person. She has a special way of 
talking to people and showing her feelings — through her music. 
Beverly composes and writes her songs and enjoys singing. So 
far, she has sung in Cabaret, numerous talent shows, 
homecomings, churches, reunions and many other events. 
Beverly has received many offers to sell her songs and have 
them published, it all started when she sent her song "Tender 
Loving Man" to Washington, D.C., to be copyrighted. After this, 
she received letters from record companies and studios wanting 
to record her songs. She has one song in Frankfort, Kentucky, 
being reviewed for a slogan for foster children. I have had the 
opportunity to listen to her sing and play her songs on the piano 
and they are beautiful. When I asked her what her songs meant, 
she simply stated "1 can say things through my music that 1 
can't say by speaking."

A College Campus Is 


If a person had to sum up a college 
campus in one word or phrase, 
what could it possibly be? There 
must be one thing that is truly the 
essence of a college campus. Since 
most every college is similar in 
structure, let us look at the various 
constituents of a campus, and in 
doing so keep our own campus in 

Is a campus the actual land on 
which the college is located, for it is 
this land that houses the buildings 
of the college and serves as a home 
away from home for many people? 
Or could it be the buildings them- 
selves, for if it were not for them, 
there would be no possible way to 
house, feed, entertain, or educate 
our students. Buildings provide 
shelter, organization, and meaning 
to otherwise barren ground. Then 
again, maybe there is more to a 
campus than the grounds or the 
buildings. Perhaps we should look 
at the people of the college. 

A campus contains a wide variety 
of people that work, study, and 
play within it; these people seem to 
supply the activity, but then again, 
could we find one particular group 
that truly defines a campus? Could 
it be the students? Certainly the 
students are the sole reason a col- 
lege exists. Since a college exists to 
educate students, do not the ones 
who educate play an equally impor- 
tant role? The professors on any 
campus dedicate much of their time 
and skills to a campus. Possibly it is 


they who really sum up a college. 
What about all the other employees 
of the school? Whether they be ad- 
ministrators, secretaries, members 
of the maintenance staff, or 
coaches, they too carry out jobs 
that influence whether or not a col- 
lege will be beneficial to its students 
and ultimately successful. 

Even though college is a place of 
learning, the campus would still be 
considerably lifeless without the ac- 
tivities that make college life memo- 
rable and worthwhile. Sports like 
football, baseball, Softball, basket- 
ball, swimming, you name it, enter- 
tain and delight both participants 
and spectators on many college 
campuses. Certainly they are major 
contributors to extra-curricular ac- 
tivities, but yes there are others. 
Every campus has its various clubs 
and organizations. These clubs car- 
ry out services to the community 
and the college. They inspire fur- 
ther achievement (if the club is re- 
lated to academics) or help indulge 
a particular talent (drama or music). 
Many students may even note spe- 
cial lecturers, dances, and campus 
wide entertainment activities as be- 
ing aspects of college life and past- 
time. Now, have we covered ever- 
ything? I don't think so. What about 
the sole reason we students are 

College life would not be complete 
without the homework, papers, and 
exams that are mandatory in all fac- 
ets of an education. Are they what 

make up college life on a campus? 
Our schedules, deadlines, last min- 
ute cramming, grades, and dili- 
gence in study are all parts of fulfill- 
ing our true purposes for being in 
college, but do they really sum up 
what college is all about and what 
really constitutes campus life? The 
answer here is no — at least not by 
themselves. You see, all of these 
things make up a campus. 

A campus is not just the land on 
which the college is built. A campus 
is not just the buildings where work 
is done. A campus is not just the 
people behind its doors. A campus 
is not just the many activities that 
take place. A campus is not just the 
schedules, exams, and papers. A 
campus is obviously all of these 
things — a mixture. No, a college 
campus is more than just a mixture; 
it's a union of all these things. Hey, 
how about that. Union College, 
how appropriate!

Kevin Thorpe Singleton is a unique, de- 
termined and busy person. The twenty- 
one year old accounting major from La- 
Fayette, Louisiana possesses many quali- 
ties and talents which make him stand out 
at Union College. One of these qualities 
and great talents include his musical abili- 
ties, vocal and piano. Once he got inter- 
ested in gospel music, he knew he wanted 
to record some of his own songs some- 
day, but admits he never imagined it 
would be as soon as it actually was. After 
coming to Union, the sports information 
director at that time, Rhonda Price, sug- 
gested that he pursue a recording career. 
"She was very helpful in getting my re- 
cording career off the ground by making 
it possible to record my first demo tape 
this past summer ('85), along with the 
help of President Phillips and many other 
citizens of Barbourville." Kevin's mother 
is a music teacher therefore, he has been 
exposed to music all of his life. His great- 
est influence in the field is Walter Haw- 
kins, a gospel recording artist who he 
admires. "I sang my first solo in the 
eighth grade and 1 was scared to death. 
Over the years, I have overcome my fear 
of audiences. I still get a little nervous 
before I sing, but 1 think that is normal. 1 
think all people get a little nervous before 
appearing but most won't admit it," he 
said. In the summer of '85, Kevin, with 
the "irreplaceable Reggie Griffin, record- 
ed a demo tape at Trio Studios in Corbin, 
Kentucky, after which it was suggested 
that he further pursue his ambition and 
record an album. Doing just that, he ba- 
gan recording his first album which was 
released in the spring of '86. It was engi- 
neered and produced by Rodney Van- 
Hoose. Of his album, Kevin commented 
"It is not nearly the calliber of Walter 
Hawkins, but with hard work and persis- 
tence, I hope to someday reach his level 
of excellence."

It's been almost three years since I set foot on this 
campus. My, how time flies — it seems like only 
yesterday. In this short amount of time, I've seen a 
lot of changes occur. Let's look back and remember 

— All freshmen were required to wear orange and 
black hats, carry their "Union and You" with 
them every where, use the front door only and 
say "Yes sir" and "Hello Miss" to the orientation 

— There were more girls on campus than guys! 

— Soccer was the one and only fall sport. 

— When A.R.A. was the Rocky and Larry Show. 

— We had ONE WEEK off for fall break! 

— There was a student organized forum to discuss 
drinking and getting kicked out — even the 
President turned out for that one! 

— You didn't even know that you had a cafeteria 
number on the back of your I.D. card. 

— President Phillips was the "new kid" on the 

— James Anderson sat on the bench. 

— A lot of our trees were cut down on Arbor Day! 

— Women's athletics couldn't even get a headline in 
The Barbourville Mountain Advocate! 

— You had to ask whether it was a Monday, 
Wednesday, Friday, Friday week or a Tuesday, 
Thursday, Friday, Friday week. 

— 8 o'clock classes started at 8 o'clock. 

— BXA sorority got tugged into the water hole by 

— All on campus students could cat in the dining 
hall without using the annex room. 

— The college was without a campus minister. 

— Co-ed flag football was the only football played 
on a Union College field. 

— Biscuits and gravy were an every morning thing. 

— You could go to Richmond for only $1. 

— The Lighthouse had its own singers. 

— At a dance, the students chanted "WE WANT 
SOCCER" to no avail, but showed support for 
their fellow students. 

It's unusual to see so many changes in such a short 
period of time but it's great! The majority have been 
for the better of the students and the school. It's 
been nice to look back but I'm looking forward to 
the future. Who knows what it holds — maybe co-ed

Dr. James Kerley, Associate Professor of Education and Head of the Education 
Department, has been at Union College for three years. He received his Ph.D. 
from Florida State University. About Union he states "1 like the close interaction 
between the students and faculty." Dr. Kerley has definite ideas about education! 
In education, he believes that a person needs to "evaluate yourself — decide 
how to make things better." He "absolutely enjoys teaching" and feels that's 
where he feels the most benefit. When asked if he thought his ideas were 
idealistic, he stated that they were a "combination of both ideal and theoretical, 
and connects them with the everyday world." He likes an active learning 
environment with students and feels that teachers share with students. Dr. Kerley 
also stated that "You never know the impact of a teacher or the impact it will 
have throughout eternity."

As 1 walked into Dr. John Taylor's "bat 
atmosphere" office I noticed a rubber bat 
hanging from the ceiling. I can say that I felt 
welcomed. Dr. John Taylor, Associate Professor 
of History and Chairman of the Social Sciences 
Division, came to Union College in August 
1980. Prior to that time he had earned his J.D. 
degree from the Duke University Law School 
and his Ph.D. degree in history from the 
Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Taylor 
teaches courses in American history and 
Appalachian history and geography. A law 
school graduate qualified to practice law in 
Pennsylvania, he also advises pre-law students 
on their future careers. "Union is an ideal place 
for me," he stated. When searching for a 
college teaching position, he wanted a college 
with an Appalachian Studies Program and a 
location near the center of the Southern 
Highlands accessible to wilderness recreation 
opportunities such as caving (thus the bat!), 
backpacking, and Whitewater rafting. The Union 
College program and location meets these 
needs. Dr. Taylor has shared his enthusiasms 
with Union students by advising the 
Appalachian Wilderness Club. To a great extent 
he has been able to integrate his avocational 
and professional interests: Appalachian Studies 
and wilderness adventures in the mountains. "I 
like to make work into play and play into 
work," he said, "for me, work should be fun 
and play should be systematic with cumulative

The Hitch-Hiker was originally written for Orson Welles' 
radio show. Something else original about the play was 
that it was a Union College production! The director and 
producer, Whitney Green, and the crew put together a 
remarkably fine production, having merely one week to set 
up the lights, costumes and sound effects. Sound effects 
was a very important aspect of the play, since the main 
prop was Ronald Adam's-car. The set was in almost total 
darkness, except for the lights on the performers, which 
^J^ conveyed an eerie quality to the audience. Also, it 

heightened the anxiety Ronald felt as he first spied the 
hitch-hiker following him along the highway and then 
throughout his journey west.

Dr. Robert Pettys, acting head of the business department, had 
been at Union College for two years. During his life, he has 

plished a B.A. in Psychology, M.A, in Counseling, M.B.A. in 
Management and an Ed.B in Higher Education. Dr. Petty was 
happy to prouide this reporter with some of his philosophy on life; 

Pettys Principle #1: "Always leave room for the next man." 
Pettys Principle #2: "Relax. Rational people don't make wrong 
decisions. They make the best decision possible with the 
information they then have available. Only later, when more 
information is available, can they in retrospect say, '1 should have 
done it differently." 

Looking back. Dr. Pettys stated that "When I was a young man, 1 

shouted in an attempt to change mankind. Now, as an older man, 

hout it is to keep mankind from changing me."

Togetherness is for Two?! 

But how is it accomplished when both teach and have hectic 
schedules?! Dr. Robert Pettys and Dr. Rebecca Pettys, who runs 
the drama department, met at Berea College, where they both 
were on the staff. But, at first, they were just friends because, 
as Rebecca stated "Anyone over thirty was an enemy." Now, 
however, they work as a team to try and spend more time with 
each other. Because a lot of Mrs. Pettys' time is spent at the 
Rector Little Theater. Bob helps by "running everything in the 
front of the house" (theater) by "painting, ticket sales and moral 
support." Sometimes, though, "there's not enough time", so they 
"write notes to each other" and "look forward to lunch — 45 
minutes of precious time together!"

Maintenance & Security 

"We doze but we never close!" stated Mr. Bob 
Potter, head of Union College maintenance and 
security. During the twenty-eight years Mr. 
Potter has been at Union, he has seen many 
additions come and go, such as the building of 
the student center. In fact, Mr. Potter has been 
a contributor to one addition. He designed the 
new weight room. But, then, some go, such as 
the MSHA bowling lanes. Mr. Potter has spent 
most of his adult life at Union College, but he 
"still enjoys being a part of it."

Nine classic automobiles ranging from 
1916 to 1949 toured the track and 
were on display during halftime of the 
Spring Scrimmage of the Union College 
football team on Saturday, April 12. It 
commemorated the 100th anniversary 
of the invention of the automobile. 
"The weather was perfect," said Dr. 
Dianne Ferris. 

The day was a success and everyone 
was bitten by the nostalgia bug as the 
vehicles of the past were put on 
parade for everyone's pleasure. The 
impact that the automobile has had on 
the American way of life is immense 
and has been at least as far reaching as 
radio, television and the industrial 

The commemorative festival was 
sponsored by the Appalachian College 
Program and the Gaines Center for the 
Humanitites, a joint effort of the 
University of Kentucky and Union 

The celebration began a week before 
the grand showing of the antique cars. 
The Rector Little Theatre hosted two 
performances of "Oh Henry!", a 
musical revue by Jim Rogers, head of 
U.K.'s drama department. There was 
also a week filled with movies, lectures, 
seminars, photo displays of old cars, 
models completed by Union students, 
and entries from Barbourville's AAUW

The big ending at Union began with 
Fitness Day registration, followed by 
the one-mile Walk-Fun run and the 5K 
race. Spirit Day was sponsored y the 
Admissions Office for anyone wanting 
to get to know Union College better. 
And at 2:00 p.m., the Bulldog 
footballers played a controlled 
scrimmage, with the parade of cars 
during halftime. The Corbin Antique 
Car Club as well as many local 
collectors rolled around the track in 
their "pride and joys." 
Later that night, there was a pool 
party with music, dancing, games, 
prizes and refreshments. "It should be 
a really outstanding day for everyone," 
said Director of Admissions Jerry 
Cornwell. And it was!

The Union College Singers have been very active this year participating in concerts, services in the campus chapel and in 
Kentucky churches, festivals, and madrigal dinners. In the spring of the year, the choir took a ten day trip through 
Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida. 

Randall Sheets, conductor, is a native of Georgia and holds degrees in music from Birmingham-Southern College in 
Birmingham, Alabama and from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. he has served as conductor and choral 
director for the University of Illinois Opera Theatre and the University of Illinois Madrigal Singers. Mr. Sheets joined 
Union's faculty in the fail of 1985. 

Lynne Robinson, accompanist, received her Bachelor of Music Degree from Furman University in Greenville, South 
Carolina. She is an instructor of piano and music at Union and also serves on the music faculty of Clear Creek Bible 
College in Pineville, Kentucky.

members. This is especially true in the Music Department in which degrees in performing arts, music education, church 
music, and music business are offered. 

Members of the Union College Singers are Richard Carter, Sandra Carter, Cheryl Cole, Jackey Cox, Lori Green, Whitney 
Green, Drew Henderson, Braxton King, Dan Meadows, Beverly Moore, Jerry Pennington, Vera Lynn Sheets, Kevin

Mom Pat In Greece 

When Director of Pfeiffer Hall 
"Mom" Pat Schweitzer climbed 
aboard an L-1011 bound for Greece 
on Aug. 14, she was intrigued by 
her studies of Greek history and 
mythology and by tales she'd heard 
of gorgeous Greek men. 

Mom spent two weeks in Greece 
climbing "monstrous mountains," 
visiting ancient historical sites, 
sunbathing and dancing. She visited 
Delphi, Olympia, Sparta, Mycannae, 
Naplio and Corinth, all of which in 
the words of Mom were "truly

When 1 asked Mom if anything 
out of the ordinary had occurred, 
she related the problem of being 
unable to communicate because she 
could not speak nor understand 
Greek. "1 found myself speaking a 
facsimile of Cherokee Indian," she 
laughed. For example, she was 
approached by a rather formidable 
customs' inspector at the Athens 
airport who, after asking her "about 
500 personal questions," growled, 
"you lie, you die." Mom, the ever 
articulate English professor, 
stammered, "Me no lie." 

Mom sums up her impressions of 
Greece by saying, "It was an 
incredible experience."

Becky Warfield, president of Union College's chpater of GBP, 
went to the state and national conventions held in Richmond, 
Ky. and Memphis, Tenn., respectively. At the state convention, 
she was elected to the office of vice-president for the state of 
Kentucky. She stated "Although I'm very honored to receive the 
position, the more important aspect is that Union College's 
chapter, which is one of the smaller chapters in the state of 
Kentucky, has consistently been represented on the state council 
by one of our members. It was another honor, at the state 
convention, for Union College's scrapbook to win the state 
competition and be forwarded to national competition."

Union's Better 
Late Than Never 
Club Helps 
Older Students 
Fit In! 


One of the newly formed clubs at 
Union College is the BLTN or 
Better Late Than Never club. This 
unique name is well-suited for the 
group because most of its members 
are 25 years or older. (Some even 
have grandchildren!) 

In the academic world, they are 
termed "non-traditional" students; 
however, BLTN's focus is on any 
student who has experienced a gap 
between high school and college. 

Mrs. Martha Cornwell, assistant 
professor of sociology, and Ms. Pat 
Schweitzer, instructor of journalism, 
conceived and founded the club last 
fall because both saw a need for a 
support group at Union. 

The number of non-traditional 
students at Union is rising, and, for 
many, returning to an unfamilar 
academic atmosphere is, as Mrs. 
Cornwell said, "a big step just to 
get to the admissions office." 

She understands this problem 
because, "I started late, too, as a 
full-time student in 1972. After 
talking with my husband (Jerry, 
Union's director of admissions) and 
talking to the students here, I found 
a number of women who were 
unsure in general about what to do 
or where to go." 

Pat Schweitzer, too, speaks from 
experience, stating that "1 started 
back to school at the age of 35 
after raising three children. I had 
been out of school for 15 years and 
was extremely nervous about 
returning. I was lucky, because 
Eastern University of Kentucky, 
where I enrolled, had a strong 
support group and without their 
help I'm not sure I'd have made it 

Both advisors agreed that many of 
Union's faculty and staff have been 
a tremendous help, including Vice 
President Carlyle Ramsey, Dean of 
Students Edward de Rosset, 
Registrar Ed LeMaster, Dr. Robert 
Swanson and Miss Frances Patridge. 

"They have facilitated anything I've 
asked for," Mrs. Cornwell stated. 
Jerry Cornwell, as director of 
admissions, is able to direct the 
returning older student to a BLTN 
member, who assists in any way he 
or she can. Sometimes this involves 
just answering questions. 

During fall registration, BLTN 
members stationed themselves near 
the admissions and registrar's offices 
to offer help. One member who 
directed a new student through the 
entire registering procedure said that 
"everytime 1 see the student, she 

smiles and says hello. I think I have 
a friend for life now." 

BLTN met January 16 for its first 
meeting of the spring semester to 
elect new officers and enjoy a 
potluck dinner. New officers are 
Barb Timm, president; Sue Buttery, 
vice-president; Christine Wilson, 
secretary/treasurer; and Viredia 
Russell, program coordinator. New 
ideas were discussed as well as 
problems older students face while 
attending college. For instance, what 
do you do when a child is sick at 
home and dinner has to be made, 
which leaves two hours to study for 
a test? 

Or, as member Virginia Farmer 
states, "I had to drop a class 
because my water line broke and I 
had to dig a new ditch!" These are 
the type of problems and 
frustrations the student fresh out of 
high school has not yet had to 

BLTN may not provide all the 
answers but it does serve its 
purpose — its members are there 
to provide support. Courtesy of The

Union College's Head Librarian, Mrs. Saddler, will retire at the 
end of this semester. She has been with Union for 24 years. 

Mrs. Saddler came to Union as Assistant Librarian and Assistant 
Professor of Library Science in 1962 and was promoted to 
Associate Professor of Library Science in 1973. In 1985 she was 
promoted to Head Librarian. 

Mrs. Saddler graduated from Cornell College with a B.A. and 
M.S. in Library Science. 

Among Mrs. Saddler's numerous contributions to library science 
during her years at Union, her efforts to insure that all students 
have access to a library are of particular note. The law passed 
in 1985 providing such library access is high on her list of 
satisfactions, she says. 

She lists two main disappointments. The first is "there is no 
systematic course for learning library skills" at Union; "learning 
these skills is voluntary." She is also disappointed that the new 
library addition will not be complete before her retirement. 

Her plans for retirement include travel. Two of her brothers live 
on opposite coasts and she has a son in Florida; she plans visits 
to these locations. 

She also plans to read a lot. "I have a long list of books to 
read," she says. Mrs. Saddler advises students to "enjoy these 
(college) years. College years are your growing years, so make 
the best of it. Don't be afraid to attempt anything because you'll 
never know you can do something until you try."

Dr. Douglas L. Blair, chairman of the Union College Board of 
Trustees, brought words of welcome to the audience and 
emphasized that this new wing to the library will be the "key to 
unlock the door to the universe to the future generations at 

The Reverend Phillip E. Connley, mayor of Barbourville, gave 
greetings to the "town and gown" group and said that "this is a 
great day for Southeastern Kentucky and a gold crown for 

President Jack C. Phillips acted as the master of ceremonies, 
introducing Vaughn & Melton Consulting Engineers of 
Middlesboro, Ky., as the architect, and that nearly $1 million has 
been pledged toward the construction. 

Floor space for the present library and the new annex will 
amount to 27,484 square feet with the annex having 18,512 
square feet of the total. The library will contain a Lincoln- 
Heritage Room, air conditioning throughout, an elevator, a 
learning-resource center, additional stack space, and automation.

Metcalfe Named Coach of the Year 

Todd Metcalfe, head coach of the Union College Swim 
Team, received the Coach of the Year honor in the 
NAIA Division. The award is presented once a year to a 
deserving coach in the NAIA. Metcalfe was rewarded 
because of the improvement his team showed during the 
course of the season. Metcalfe is pleased with the award 
but stated that the swim team meant much more to him 
than the award. 

"He is a demanding coach," says Jeff Fryman, a team 
member. Jeff says Metcalfe likes things to be perfect, 
but he makes practice fun. "Everyone loves him 
because he is so hilarious," added Fryman. 

"It can't all be serious," says Metcalfe, who went on to 
say that he is aware swimming can become monotonous 
and has to be made fun. 

The Swimmers at Union average 500 yards, or 200 
pool lengths, in their two and one-half hour practices. 

CONGRATULATIONS, Coach Metcalfe, UC is proud of

The water Dogs stroked their way 
through another season of 
competitive swimming. This was the 
first year of competitive swimming 
for many members of the team, but 
they trained hard and kept up their 
enthusiasm during the whole season. 
The team was very young and will 
ose no one to graduation. With this 
in mind we will get good leadership 
from the veterans along with some 
excellent talent coming from new 

Outstanding performances came
