By raising the age, the cam- 
pus forces people to drive to 
bars and other "watering holes" 
to find their "fun"; whereas be- 
fore, the administration could at 
least keep an eye on the situa- 
tion. This to me is just a way of 
passing the buck and avoiding 
the responsibility of taking care 
of the students and their activi- 
ties. There is no way to stop 

someone from drinking, the 
best way to solve the problem is 
to work with the students in- 
stead of against them. —Mark 
Feiring, 21 

The driving aspect is a cop- 
out. Most students do not drink 
at their home anyway and must 
drive to get alcohol when they 
are there.— C/? Hall, Office of the 

College should be different 
than living at home, but it seems 
like high school. However, the 
new drinking age makes the se- 
lection of guys better in bars 
since the majority will be over 
21.— Laura Bedhgfield, 22 

It you're under 21, there are 
no places to dance unless you 
want to dance with high school 
kids. — Terri Hrisak, 19 

The issue is not on drinking, 
but on granting responsibility. 
— Dr. Nancy Kerr 

There should be a standard 
definition "of "adult" by the 
United States. —Keith Nahh 

It's all about responsibility. I 
was in the Army and felt out- 
raged when I was given a weap- 
on to kill with and yet couldn't 
drink. It's ironic that they are 

^aC^ (^ t^e ^(Mm. 

changing laws to save lives yet 
train 18 year-olds to kill. —Pa- 
tricia Hatch, 22 

It is a hypocritical position 
for society to expect young 
adults to behave responsibly in 
other areas and not with alcohol. 
The issue is learning to drink 
wisely. There should be strong 
drinking and driving penalties. 
—Dr. Debra Woolley 

Statistics on fatal car acci- 
dents caused by drunk drivers 
speak for themselves. If young 
adults can't handle the responsi- 
bility involved when consuming 
alcohol, by all means the drink- 
ing age should keep going up. 
It's mainly to prevent teenagers 
from having access to alcohol. 
Raising the age keeps 18 year 
olds in high school from buying 
alcohol for 16 year-olds who 
cannot handle it. — Bonnie Boles, 

If the state feels there is a 
drinking and driving problem 
(which there is), they should 
raise the age to acquire a drivers' 
license not the age to drink, be- 
cause underage students will 
buy it somewhere, somehow. — 
Shelly Alford, 22 

No time to explain; I'm busy 
making a fake I.D. —Ron 
Vaughn, 20 

The only way to curb drunk 
driving is through education 
and cooperation in programs 
like SADD. —Pat Capes, 21 


I understand O.U.'s concerns 
and adherence to Georgia laws, 
but it should be allowed at func- 
tions and be served to those of 
age. — Karen Hewins, 19 

If we can legally drink, O.U. 
should not be able to tell us 
where and when we can drink as 
long as it is not destructive or 
disruptive. — Christi Hendrix 

If we really wanted to enforce 
the law we would check rooms. 
But, the administration is not 
babysitting students. —Trudy 
Shumake, Oglethorpe Adminis- 

Those of age should have the 
right to consume alcohol at soc- 
cer games, weekend club, and 
parties. — Bonnie Bertoline, Og- 
lethorpe Administration 

There's reason for hope in 
other activities, especially The 
Bomb Shelter, which was a stu- 
dent initiated project. — Dr. 
Victoria Weiss 

■Who wants to go to The 
Bomb Shelter and watch a mov- 
ie when they can go to the Draft 
House and watch a movie and 

have a beer.-' — Michelle Puyne, 

Oglethorpe's position is th.-^ 
students must assume a personac 
responsibility for their decisions 
related to the use of alcohol. 
University policies concerning 
alcoholic beverages are de- 
signed to promote a responsible 
use of alcohol, to establish spe- 
cific rules and guidelines for the 
appropriate use of alcohol on 
campus, and to stress the stan- 
dard of behavior expected of 
students at all times. It is disrup- 
tive or unruly behavior, injury to 
others, or damage to property 
(not the mere possession or use 
of alcoholic beverages) that will 
constitute a disciplinary offense. 
— Donald R. Moore, Dean of 
Community Life. 

^^f we can legally drink, O.U. 
f should not he able to tell us 
where and when to drink — as 
long as it is not destructive or dis- 
ruptive. — Christi Hendrix. 

0^^ti villi always have certain 
f^y parameten within which we 
must live. Learning to live within such 
parameters, responsibly, is a part of the 
educational process; one which will contin - 
ue being after one leaves the university set- 
ting. —Leigh Anne Leist, Director of 

7 he only way to curb drunk 
driving is through educa- 
tion and cooperation in programs 
like SADD— Students Against 
Drunk Driving. — Pat Captes

When Dr. Robert Moffie did 
not receive tenure, almost the 
entire student body went into a 
state of shock. There was no 
doubt in most students' minds 
that he would be teaching for 
many years. He was highly re- 
garded by students as a good 
psychology teacher, a reliable 
psychologist, and a dear friend. 
"Dr. Moffie always seemed to 
be there for any student who 
needed help." I knew of many 
students that received free ses- 
sions from him, and I feel with- 
out him they may have suffered 
greatly," told Chris Erckert. 

Obviously, the administration 
felt that Dr. Moffie was not 
qualified for tenure — and they 

stood strong on their decision. 
Robert Strozier began a petition 
that was signed by well over 200 
students and the Oglethorpe 
Student Association Senate sent 
a letter to the administration. 
Both were futile endeavors 
which were done to ask for a 
review of the decision. Ray Lu- 
cas, OSA president, and Stephen 
Schmidt, the Chairman of the 
Board of Trustees corresponded 
on this subject — ultimately lead- 
ing nowhere also. 

It seemed to be a hard fact for 
some students to accept and 
many editorials were written on 
the subject. As the academic 
year came to an end, and so did 
Dr. Moffie's last year at Ogle- 

thorpe, controversy died 
down — it was finally accepted 
(within the student body). Rath- 
er than harping on the subject, 
students began to look ahead; 
plans were made for a last fare- 
well in his honor. 

On the Friday before final ex- 
ams began, students gathered in 
a room in Hearst Hall for Dr. 
Moffie's last lecture. Students 
arrived up to 20 minutes early in 
order to get a good seat. As the 
room filled, anticipation and 
emotions grew rapidly. Peg 
O'Neal ran into class and an- 
nounced that Dr. Moffie was on 
his way. A hush filled the room 
as he entered. Then, on a sudden 
impulse, everyone began ap- 

plauding. This show of respea 
lasted a complete 5 minutes, 
sturming Dr. Moffie to a mo- 
tionless state. As Dr. Moffie 
made his way to his leaurn, peo- 
ple hugged him, shook his hand, 
and some even began to cry. 

He was dumbfounded. He 
stood in front of the class 
speechless. Finally, with tears in 
his eyes, he began to speak, only 
to be interrupted by another 
wave of applause. Dr. Moffie 
continued on, speaking to the 
class with candor on the issue, 
filling students in on his plans 
for the future, and finally giving 
his "official" good-bye speech. 
His speech brought many peo- 
ple to tears. 

^^^^^e was taken completely by sur- 
W # prise, because he expected a class 
of under ten and was received by at least 
fifty people. — Lori Garner; jr.

the students as they physically 
pronounced their respect for the one man — 
Dr. Moffie. An entrance into a good-bye, 
and exit into a bright, bright, future. — 
Harry Frazer; Jr. 

*^\r. Moffie said that all of his stu- 
^^ dents were wonderful and he would 
always remember them. He would always 
be there for them— if they needed. That 
reception meant the world to him—Kaylen

With donations from Capitol 
City Paint, Handy Ace Hard- 
ware, K-Mart, and Pike Nurs- 
ery, sixteen Oglethorpians spent 
a Saturday away from the cam- 
pus, working at the CHARLEE 
home. These students and facul- 
ty donned their work clothes 
and spent a day painting both 
the interior and exterior of the 
home, and providing lawn main- 

CHARLEE, an acronym for 
Children Have All Rights— Le- 
gal, Educational, Emotional, 
was founded in 1980 to house 
troubled children whose only 
other option was institutionali- 
zation. There are four homes in 
the Atlanta area run by house 

parents who try to give the chil- 
dren an opportunity to live a 
"normal" childhood. Ann 
Cramer, president of the CHAR- 
LEE Homes, said, "One of the 
greatest hopes of our project is 
to encourage volunteer partici- 
pation from community organi- 
zations, corporations, and other 
foundations. The leadership 
shown to us by the Oglethorpe 
students who participated is 
what we look for and want to 
encourage other student organi- 
zations to participate in." 

Oglethorpe's part began with 
a letter written in the Stormy Pe- 
trel. The letter asked any stu- 
dents interested in helping out 
to participate, as well as asking 

for each organization to repre- 
sent themselves at the day. O.U. 
representatives that participated 
in this project were Bonnie 
Boles, Tim Bracy, Debi Car- 
done, Marty Eastlack, Michelle 
Fleming, Andy Geeter, Liz 
Hames, Leah Hughes, Tom 
Johnson, Kathy King, Joe Mas- 
don, Marshal Nason, Jennifer 
O'Brien, Doris Rojas, Barbara 
Shadomy, and Johnny White. 
Because some of the students 
were in more than one club, the 
organizations they represented 
were many. The groups repre- 
sented most by volunteers were 
Tri Sigma-— five, Rotaract—iive, 
and Oglethorpe Christian Fellow- 
ship— {out. Circle K, SAWBS, 

Alpha Phi Omega and Chi Phi 
were also fully represented. 

Some students spent the en- 
tire day from 9 am till 4:30 in the 
afternoon at the house, complet- 
ing the project successfully. "It 
was a unique experience, and I 
feel that more projects should 
be planned that involve students 
from the different aspects of the 
Oglethorpe community. Not 
only does it show the local com- 
munity that Oglethorpe stu- 
dents care about their surround- 
ings, but it also helped create 
bonds of friendship to people 
who may have never met had the 
circumstances been different." 
— Kathleen Ganey.

Paige Collier peruse their hymn book for a tune which they J

were all members of the University Singers. 

Some students flocked to the BSTK show- 
ing at The Bomb Shelter, others trudged to 
Lowry Hall Libraty, and still others set their 
studies aside and ventured outside of the 
campus to taste the Atlanta nightlife . . . stu- 
dent life in action. 

Students also spent their time at English 
Club Meetings at Dr. Robert Fusilio's home, 
play tehearsal with Mr. Lane Anderson, OSA 
meetings with Marshall Nason, working off- 
campus, or engaging in intramural sports. 
Not to mention Sorority and Fraternity meet- 
ings and events. Close bonds of friendship 
were formed through these various social ac- 


Friends often went out en mass to places 
such as Vat Tuesdays, P.J. Haleys, and Houli- 
hans. This, however, became a thing of the 
past and the rage of the present. No longer 
were they able to mix, mingle, dance and 
drink at these establishments. They became 
off limits to those under 21 years old — which 
included the majority of students on campus. 
Students, however, did not spend their ener- 
gies fretting over the new law, but rather, set 
their sights on a unique club; thus, the birth 
of the Bomb Shelter-— which became the talk 
of the town.

A heavy silence loomed in 
the corridors of Hearst Hall. Moving 
outside in the courtyard, the weak March 
sun reflected on the empty concrete benches. 
In Traer Quad, only a scarce few remained — this was 

spme BRiAH 

Books closed, pens down, suit- 
cases packed, the grounds of Og- 
lethorpe University were evacuated 
faster than a building inferno. By 
plane, boat, car, roller skates, foot 
and thumb they went, using what- 
ever means necessary to escape the 
pressures of collegiate living. 

For some, it was a break for rest 
and relaxation; these people went 
home to enjoy the comfort of fa- 
miliar surroundings. Although not 
as glamourous as some of the other 
Spring Break frequents, the reasons 
were various as to why some went 
home. Freshman Brent Evitt told, "I 
went home to Tennessee to work. It 
wasn't foo exciting, but I made ex- 
tra money and went ahead in my 
studies." Kevin Walmsley, another 

Freshman, went home. "I couldn't 
afford to go anywhere else." Yawn- 
ing, he added, "It was so boring. 
The most excitement I had was res- 
cuing my uncle's dog from being 
mauled by an alligator." 

For others, Spring Break was a 
quest — an endless journey for 
tanned and bikini-clad bodies, sun- 
drenched beaches and a whole lot 
of partying. Students such as An- 
thony Antar, Frank Beaty, Harry 
Frazier, Dave Turner, and Harris 
Targovnik joined thousands of oth- 
er elite college students who made 
their pilgrimage to Ft. Lauderdale. 
"We heard it was the place to be, so 
we decided to check it out." For 
most, however, the novelty of the 
massive partying wore off after two 

days. As sophomore Tom James 
put it, "Ft. Lauderdale at Spring 
Break is too crowded and too dis- 
orderly. Besides that, the sand is 

Finally, for others, Spring Break 
was cultural, yet fun learning exper- 
ience. Seniors Shelly Alford, Anne 
Marie Messer-Schmidt, Amy 
Young, Jackie Liberman, Rina Sil- 
verman, Michelle Gazes, and Geor- 
gie Krause decided to deviate from 
the normal Spring Break vacation 
spot and go to the Bahamas: "We 
were fed up with the collegiate 
meatmarket scene, plus we love is- 
land music and beaches." These 
"Bahama Mamas" roughed it for 
six days, living in bungalows in a 
tiny village with no television or 

radio. Who said O.U. students are 

At last Spring Break was over, 
and dorm by dorm, the campus 
filled with students— some relaxed 
and some ranted— eager to tell sto- 
ries of their vacation escapades. A 
good time was had by all and it was 
once again time to get back to the 
studies. But a question still lingered 
in the back of every students 
mind— How long until summer va-

On a Saturday morning in 
Traer, the beginnings of a rum- 
ble could just be heard. From its 
space in front of the third floor 
lounge, the large stereo system 
let out a crackling, monotonous 
hum. Then, within seconds. The 
Bangles' "Manic Monday" was 
heard riveting through the quad. 

Gradually, girls were begin- 
ning to emerge from their 
rooms. Others stood in door- 
ways peeping out. Still others 
were already laying out in the 

The day began with just the 
girls, competing against each 
other in fun and games. Before 
long, Kathleen Ganey, former 
housing director, announced the 
beginning of the contests. 

Residents of all three floors 
of Traer Hall and the residents 
of Goodman Hall competed 
against one another. At the out- 
set, the third floor girls emerged 
as first in the scavenger hunt. 
There were water ballooning 
contests, too. In the end, the sec- 
ond floor girls were the overall 
winners, with the third floor 
coming in a close second, the 
first floor was third, and Good- 
man was fourth. 

By one o'clock the quad was 
filled with girls running around 
in "jams" with Hawaiian leis 
around their necks. And very 
soon after, the crowds of men 
began to pour in. By now, that 

beginning rumble had built into 
a roar, nearly drowning out the 

In this second phase of the 
Beach Bash, refreshments were 
brought out. They consisted of 
a tub of shrimp, a keg of beer, 
and a table full of sliced pineap- 
ples. Students milled around 
downstairs, where virgin Daiqui- 
ris were being mixed in the 

Another round of games en- 
sued and this time, both sexes 
participated. These were spoon 
races and tug-o-wars. Teresa 
Barnhill, who participated in 
several of the races, smilingly 
commented on the zany antics 
of her partner, Bruce Grain: "He 
kept cheating ... I mean in the 
box races, he was running and 
he actually pulled the box all the 
way up and peeked out!" 

Soon, the afternoon waned 
into evening and students sat 
down to eat grilled hamburgers 
and hot dogs while listening to 
the sounds of the band. "Not 
Only But Also," and their, as 
Heidi Dawson put it. "Garfunk- 
ley" music. 

At the close of the evening 
students trickled selectively 
from the quad. A low hum was 
all that was left of the roar, as 
the echo of human voices quiet- 
ed to a whisper. "This was really 
great," said Jennifer Gamblin. 

The Thrill of Victory. Jackie Woodard, 
Jervette Nunn, Andy Geeter, Robert Stro- 
zier, and Mike Clance congratulate one an- 
other after winning the tug-o-war. They were

Inside the gymnasium the buzz of excited voices rose in harmony with the tuning 
of the string quartet, while gold -roped chairs awaited the graduation candidates. The 
attitudes of all present were varied. "Can it be over already?" mourned one senior. 
"Thank God it finally arrived!" thought another in relief. Each individual possessed 
their own story of trials, failures, and 


Thus began the U4th Conr 
mencement at Oglethorpe. D 
Manning Patillos's welcome pre- 
ceded the invocation and scriptur- 
ereading by Dr. Lavon Tally, which 
was followed with a musical inter- 
lude by the Atlanta Chamber Play- 
ers. The excitement increased with 
the bestowing of honors and 
awards. Ronda C. Davis received 
the Sally Hull Weltner Award for 
Scholarship and John Thomas 
Payne matched their achievement 
by receiving the Faculty award for 
Scholarship. The prized James Ed- 
ward Oglethorpe awards presented 
to the man and woman who best 
epitomized the Oglethorpe educa- 
tion — were deservingly bestowed 

upon Diane Marie Dubay and Lew- 
is "Casey" Chosewood. A third 
award newly instituted at the com- 
mencement of 1986 was the Phi 
Beta Kappa Award. Leah "Guyn- 
elle" Brown was chosen as the 
graduating senior who best exem- 
plified the criteria of Phi Beta 
Kappa with a traditional major and 
superior scholastic achievement. 
Lastly, the President's leadership 
Prize was presented to Raymond 
Harris Lucas for exhibiting a high 
caliber of leadership in a number of 
campus organizations. 

The president of the class of 
1986, Douglas Scott Schmitt, added 
levity to the formal occassion. He 
announced the senior gift— barbe- 

que grills for both men and wom- 
en's dorms, then jokingly referred 
to the newly renovated Schmidt 
Hall as being named in his honor. 
Actually, the men's dormitory was 
renamed in honor of Stephen John 
Schmidt, an alumnus of 1940. Mr, 
Schmidt and the commencement 
speaker, John Brooks Fuqua, were 
awarded honorary degrees called 
Doctor of Laws. 

As a successful leader of industry 
and politics, Mr. Fuqua focused his 
address on the "basics" of leader- 
ship. He stressed setting goals, act- 
ing like a leader, and striving to be 
"uncommon in a common world. " 
Entrepeneur and sportsman, Ted 
Turner, was present for his daugh- 

ter Laura's graduation, and served 
as a real-life embodiment of Mr. 
Fuqua's remarks. 

At last the conferring of degrees 
arrived. One hundred twenty-four 
Oglethorpians received Bachelor of 
Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor 
of Business Administration, and 
Master of Arts degrees. Honor 
graduates received deserved ap- 
plause, while the always forbidden 
but inevitable cat calls and clapping 
conveyed the pride of others' par- 
ents and friends. And a benediction 
by Dr. Ken Nishimura brought the 
ceremony to its conclusion.

The Art of Eating 

Time for dessert! While waiting in line for 
the main coursejoe Helwig, Randy Padgett, 
Alan Royalty and Richard Yen choose their 

Autumn Bar-b-que. A few times a year 
Epicure sponsors special "theme meals"— 
Barry Carswell, Joe Helwig and Steve Cum- 
bee enjoy their meal in the beautiful autumn 

Fortunately, as most students 
may have been accustomed to at 
home, this art of consumption did 
not require formal dtess — even the 
most casual attire was completely 
acceptable. Yet somehow things 
were different than the homelife 
kitchen. For at the cafeteria, it was 
necessary to wait in line! (No more 
grabbing at edibles in cabinets, pan- 
tries and refrigerators.) However, 
students were nonetheless offered 
the opportunity to serve themselves 
during the outdoor cookouts, at the 
salad bar, and the drinking foun- 
tains. After the task of obtaining 
food was achieved, eating became a 
social event as students flocked to- 
gether with friends and acquaint- 

ances to display their good manners 
learned at home — remembering 
never to speak with a mouth full of 
food! After all, whatever would the 
200 other "consumers" think of a 
co-student who had not yet mas- 
tered the basics of the art of eating.' 
Although such basics may be ac- 
quired elsewhere, college not only 
taught students the academic disci- 
plines, it training those restricted to 
campus-consumption to discipline 
the stomache to become hungry 
only during mealtimes; 7:15-9:15 
am, 11:15-1 pm and 5-6:30 pm daily. 
And thus we have the art of eating: 
good manners, patiently waiting on 
lines, and time restrictions!

Time to Relax 

With so much time spent study- 
ing, going to class, and going to 
parties, many students tried to 
make the most of that elusive time 
period called "spare time". Televi- 
sion was a good contender for first 
place on a student's list of spare- 
time activities during the day and 
night. During the day, active stu- 
dents opted for tennis or basketball 
while others worked out in "The 
Pit" or ran the track. Reading was a 
favorite activity for many as long as 
textbooks were not included. 
Swimming, limited to early fall, late 

spring, and summer, was always 
popular on a sunny day. 

Nighttime activities often 
ranged from dorm-room TV 
watching to Bomb Shelter TV 
watching with many students. Cu- 
pid hit O.U. and made romantic 
walks on campus common for 
moonlight couples such as Adri- 
enne Marcotte and Willie Williams 
as well as Tom James and Jill Helm- 

There were no more lonely hours 
for those sneaky students obtaining 
a pet to share in their semester! Of 

the more infamous pets on campus 
were Patches, the Chi Omega 
House cat and unofficial mascot 
who became an instant friend to 
students, faculty and visitors at the 
house; Beloise, a once-resident of 
Alumni, became famous as the larg- 
est rabbit anyone has ever seen. 
In fact, rumor has it that she was 
registered as a dog in order to fly on 
one of the airlines. Cyndi, a short- 
time Jacobs resident, was a small, 
but adorable puppy which ended 
up with a permanent home in At- 
lanta via student, Teri Wall. 

A glimpse into the past. With their own 
way of relaxing on a sunny spring morning

over an Oglethorpe yearbook. 


With the summer coming to an end, 
freshmen were closer toward their 
"new experience/' for those re- 
turning it was Just 

Back to School 

The gates of Oglethorpe wel- 
comed a surgence of new and old 
faces. It was Fall 1986— the begin- 
ning of a new school semester..and 
an outlet to a bright future. 

The first few weeks of school 
were filled with good times with 
old friends, mingling with new 
friends at the Welcome Back 
Dance, and a hectic orientation 
schedule for the freshman. 

The freshman attended the annu- 
al get-together at President Pattil- 
lo's home. Here, the freshmen and 
their parents met Dr. and Mrs. Pat- 
tillo and were introduced to other 
administrators, as well as other 
freshmen. The freshmen also at- 

tended speeches given by the 
O.S.A. members and club presi- 
dents. Following the speeches, they 
were invited to sign up for the wide 
variety of clubs and organizations 
on campus at the club fair in the 
Emerson Student Center. Some of 
the groups who were there included 
the Oglethorpe Players, Circle K. 
Rotaract, the Oglethorpe Christian 
Fellowship and the International 
Club. Between moving into the 
dorms, registering for classes, get- 
ting acquainted and reacquainted 
with roommates, and buying 
books, the students found time to 
do "Hot-lanta."

They traveled on MARTA, 
shopped at ienox Square for dorm 
decorations, and attempted to use 
bogus Oglethorpe meal tickets to 
get into such popular nightspots as 
Confetti, Elan, and The Limelight. 
Some students discovered Stone 
Mountain and enjoyed the final la- 
ser show of the year on Labor Day, 
a grand finale of laser lights, and 
fireworks on display with a variety 
of popular songs being played in 
the background. 

The realization that "this" was 
actually school hit students in the 
second week of classes, when stu- 
dents were handed assignments and 
realized that they were already be- 
hind. Some students took this dis- 
covery in stride and made a trip to 
Lowry Hall to delve into their stud- 
ies. For the freshmen, a trip to 
Lowry Hall meant taking the re- 
quired tour of the library with their 
Freshman Seminar class. 

Sorority and Fraternity Rush was 
the beginning as well, and many 
students were juggling rush parties 

and functions with school work. 
But, a good time was had by most 
who participated in rush. The stu- 
dents involved were treated to re- 
freshments in a casual and fun at- 
mosphere. Today, some of these 
rushees are now proud brothers and 
sisters of the fraternities and sorori- 
ties on campus. 

Thus, with all of these activities 
going on, the first few weeks of 
school flew by and it was not long 
before students began calling home 
and asking that ever popular ques- 
tion, "Can you send me more mon- 

Well, college life had started, 
and for most of the students, it 
meant looking forward to a year of 
new experiences and challenges.

Friday, October 31, Halloween finally ar- 
rived, and all throughout the campus stu- 
dents seemed to welcome it with open arms. 
Festivities began early over in Traer with the 
advent of the annual "Trick-or-Treat in 
Traer." The event was sponsored by Rotor- 
act and succeeded in giving neighborhood 
children a safer and friendly place to go 
trick-or-treating. Preparations for the event 
began in early afternoon. And the spark of 
excitement could be seen thtoughout the 
entire quad. 

The doors were already decorated to give 
the kids the full effect of Halloween while 
contestants waited outside doors to be 
judged. Eager participants stood and sat out- 
side, bags of candy in hand, waiting for the 
trick-or-treaters. And in one corner of the 
quad, the strains of "Margaritaville" could 
be heard, as a group of girls and guys passed 
the time singing songs. 

Later on, the doors were judged, and 
Mary Jane Turner and Beth Eckerd were the 
winners. Soon after, children began to pour 
into the quad dressed from dragons to Don 
Johnson. Kroger and the Oglethorpe Stu- 
dent Association supplied over 250 dollars 
worth of candy. Eleven- Alive news was there

very long 

before candy bags were emptied. The trick- 
or-treaters piled into the middle of the quad 
and ran around trying to catch pieces of 
falling candy being thrown down from a 
number of people on the upper floors. 

As the daytime activities lulled to a close, 
the nightime activities were just beginning. 
Chi Omega and Sigma Alpha Epsilon took 
to the streets of a nearby neighborhood to 
patrol the area for neighborhood kids. At 
8:00 p.m. in Lupton Auditorium, the Ogleth- 
orpe Players put on their second consecutive 
presentation of "Elephant Man." The Chi 

Phi Halloween party held at 9:00 that night, 
brought a climatical end to Friday's excite- 
ment. The next night OSA and Delta Sigma 
Phi held their annual Halloween Costume 
Party. Several students showed up, donned 
in costumes and ready to party. And they did 
just that; they partied and halfway through, 
all the contestants dressed in their costumes 
lined up on stage to be judged. Sherry Sing 
emerged as the winner; thus, the thrilling 
Halloween weekend had come to a close.

Miss Yamacraw 

The Miss Yamacraw pageant, a 
major fundraiser for the Yama- 
craw, was held on Dec. 3 in Lupton 
Auditorium. Ten Oglethorpe ladies 
were given their time in the lime- 
light. In this annual competition, 
the women were judged on their 
academic fitness, poise, appearance 
and talent. Prior to "the Big Night," 
the contestants were extensively in- 
terviewed by the pageant's judges. 
Some of the questions asked in- 
cluded "What do you like most and 
least about yourself?" and "What 
one thing would you change to im- 
prove Oglethorpe University?" As 
the evening proceeded and the cur- 
tains parted, this year's contestants 
glided across the stage, flashing 
nervous smiles. This year's contes- 
tants were: Karen Poe— sponsored

The Last Supper 

Thursday night of finals week 
saw the campus inundated with 
puffy-eyed students roaming the 
campus, exhausted from many 
sleepless nights, some heading 
home, others preparing for their last 
final — (Friday at nine a.m.), and still 
others were partying the night 
away, celebrating the end of an- 
other semester, or as with the fresh- 
men, their first at college. 

Friday morning, the last official 
day of the semester saw .students 
heading for their final exam. After 
the exam, students flocked to the 

cafeteria to eat lunch — the last meal 
offered by Epicure for the semester. 
Contrasting with the usual routine 
of students rushing into the crowd- 
ed cafeteria, the remaining students 
entered an almost empty room, sat 
down relieved that the week had 
finally come to an end, and talked 
to their friends about their future 
holiday plans. 

For many students, this meal was 
the last time they would be with 
their friends until the Spring semes- 
ter began, and for others it was the 
end of the college career.

the grassy terrain of campus study- 
ing during the afternoon hours, 
most head for the shelter of build- 
ings in order to escape the darkness 
of night and the cold temperatures 
of the winter months, dwelling in 
thought over previous lecture mate- 
rial or reading through new assign- 
ments. Study habits varied with in- 
dividual personalities: some chose 
the more social atmosphere of the 
bookstore lounge and the Student 
Center; others opted for the quiet 
environment of the library or the 
privacy offered by dorm rooms 

The art studio of Faith Hall and the 
science labs in Goslin provided the 
necessary equipment for students 
studying in those respective areas. 
As afternoon studiers caught up on 
sleep in the evening, the "all- 
nighters" could be found awake 
into the wee hours of morning. Al- 
though the ultimate goal of apply- 
ing their minds to learning in pur- 
suit of academic achievement 
remained constant, the time and 
place for study solely relied on indi- 
vidual preference.

Late Night studying often began in the Stu- 
dent Center, but usually ended in the Traer 
fifst floor lounge or individual rooms be- 
cause the Student Centei closed at mid- 
night. Barry Carswell and Jeff Amon spend a 
Wednesday night in the Emerson Student 
Center translating papers into Spanish.

The (O.U.) population was an ecclectic 
mixture. Add a dash of punk, a dash of 
prep, and a dash of chic and voila the 
recipe for the student body is prepared. 
Students flocked to school from such for- 
eign cities as Niceville, Florida; Austell, 
Georgia; and Wantawgh, New York. 
While in the "Big City" of Atlanta, there 
were such diverse delights as The Lime- 
light, The High Museum, and The Varsity. 
But, students didn't spend all of their 
spare time out and about town— a vast 
majority of their time was spent engrossed 
in Economics, Calculus III, or English 
Composition. They were diligent "ur- 
chins", as Dr. Bruce Hetherington would 

The diversity also emerged within the 
faculty and staff population. There were

alumnae from such prestigious schools as 
Harvard, Yale, and Stanford. The activi- 
ties of the people in the community also 
varied in much detail. Over the Summer 
there were such events as Dr. Nancy 
Kerr's experiment which was funded by 
the University, partly. It entailed the image 
patterns in the brain— comparing the 
sighted and the blind. The opening of the 
Georgia Shakespeare Festival, and its con- 
nections with the University — Lane An- 
derson, Victoria Weiss, and Jeff Portnoy, 
brought much attention to the campus. 
But, most likely the biggest event 
throughout the year was the birth of Alli- 
son Neujahr, the daughter of Dr. Philip 
Neujahr and Dr. Victoria Weiss.— she was 
undoubtedly the talk of the town. 

"The intellectual aspect of the student body has 
risen sharply. I find that my classes are increasingly 
pleasurable and that there is more of an intellectual 
exchange during class.— Dr. Ken Nishamura, Pro- 
fessor of Philosophy.

To his studies, activities and 
Friends, Mauricio Amaya showed 


io came to Atlanta with the intention of completing an English Pro- 
gram at Georgia Tech, but after three quarters decided to earn a degree in 
Chemistry instead, and transferred to Oglethorpe. "The advantages of attending a 
university in the United States are terrific," told Mauricio. "I am considering 
ig to graduate school a year or two after graduating from Oglethorpe. Then I 
would like to go back to El Salvador to live." He had not yet decided what he was 
going to do with his Chemistry major, but felt confident about being able to put 
in his home country. 

It might have looked like a maxi- 
mum-security campus as students 
drove through the front gate of the 
University, until they noticed that wel- 
coming smile— the smile of Mauricio 

Being a regular inhabitant of the 
guardhouse during the endless nights 
and throughout the long weekends, 
Mauricio worked as a part-time em- 
ployee of the University to help pay for 
his tuition. Born in San Salvador, El 
Salvador, he had never been to the 
United States prior to his arrival in At- 
lanta, where he enrolled in Oglethorpe 
and decided to major in Chemistry. 

Mauricio, probably the most well- 
known off-campus student, spent 
nearly all of his time on campus, par- 
ticipating in clubs and activities, study- 
ing for exams, and working at the 
guardhouse. College is much more 

than just classes." Mauricio proved his 
point and showed his enthusiasm by 
participating in various organizations. 
As well as becoming a brother of Delta 
Sigma Phi, Mauricio helped build the 
International Club to the active and 
well respected position the organiza- 
tion has had on campus during his four 
years. He participated in the founding 
of the Rotaract Club, was Junior Class 
President and volunteered to be an am- 
bassador for UNICEF. 

His great achievements have not 
gone unrewarded: he was chosen to be 
in Who's Who in American Colleges 
and Universities, and in Sigma Zeta, 
the science honorary society. 

Mauricio Amaya has contributed 
many things to Oglethorpe— his most 
important contribution: himself. His 
dedication was unsurpassed by anyone 
in his class.

Sunshine on a rainy day. Senior Penni Reid hurries to Dr. Wooley's 
Writing Strategies and Stylistics class after eating a quick lunch between 
classes. Penni, an English Major, consideres the free access to the professors 
to be her favorite thing about Oglethorpe. "It's been an added experience to 
be able to become friends with them." 

With a smile on her face 
when seen everyplace, Penni had 

Real Appeal 

Senior year is a time for students to 
looi< back, recollect and reflect. For 
some the look back is mixed, blending 
the happy and unhappy, the good and 
the bad. From the student body, 
emerged one who took these mixed 
memories and blended them into a sto- 
ry of love and true beauty, Penni Reid. 

Tall with brown hair and dimples, 
she was most famous for the smile that 
was almost always on her face. 

The kindness Penni didn't give away 
in a smile, she saved and spent else- 
where, like in her extra-curricular com- 
mitments. And she had had many. 
Through college she was involved in 
many clubs and organizations, and had 
countless achievements. In four years 
she was president of the English Club, 
Sigma Tau Delta, and Oglethorpe 
Christian Fellowship. She was a mem- 
ber of Omicron Delta Kappa, Execu- 

tive Round Table and the yearbook 
staff In her junior year she was an RA. 

Penni was perhaps best known for 
her dedication to OCF. She was secre- 
tary for three years and founded the 
Oglethorpe Christian Newsletter, The 
Beacon. Some of Penni's favorite past 
times were playing the piano, listening 
to contemporary Christian music and 
going to church. 

"Finding Jesus Christ has been the 
most fuUfiUing experience of my life," 
says Penni, immediately trading her 
smile for a serious look. "I was intro- 
duced to Jesus in my adolescence by a 
group of Christians, they accepted me 
for who I was, and being an adolescent 
that was very important to me at that 
time. But more importantly, I was at- 
tracted by enormous amounts of joy

Real Appeal 

A familiar sight. When Penni Reid is not found running around campus she is 
: likely found in the basement of Lowry Hall, studying diligently in the 
cubicle to the right of the elevator. In her sophomore year she was awarded the 
Alpha Chi Academic Award, along with Bonnie Boles, both had accumulated a 
point grade average to earn that award. 

continued from page 59 

and strength they exhibited, and espe- 
cially the fact that their joy and 
strength wasn't just another part of 
Sunday church service. It was much 
more. Since that time, my relationship 
with God has flourished. And what's 
more, I've learned how to love and 
accept everyone, no matter how they 
think or who they are. I've learned the 
message of Jesus Christ: to minister to 
people through love, rather than argue 
with them in conflicts." 

Penni said she learned how to han- 
dle anxiety, organize her priorities, and 
realize that grades are not as important 
as true friends. 

Penni felt that her major in English 
and minor in Psychology will help her 
to live life in the real world ... by 
giving her a kind of authority in com- 
municating the verbal, written and un- 
spoken word. Her command of the 
written word has led several of her 
works to be given certain honors, like 
publications in the Tower. 

Penni said she would like to be re- 
membered as "someone who made 
people happier, who brought joy to the 
community, who tried to pass on love, 
who had an incredible value as an indi- 
vidual, and who tried to make every- 
one feel good about who they are!"

Dr. Bruce Hetherington 

Some Background On 
Scooter's and Little Huck's Dad 

Dr. Bruce Hetherington, Oglethorpe's ac- 
cident prone Economics professor, spent 
most of this year's fall semester in the hospi- 
tal. His stay in traction came from a series of 
accidents throughout his life (all 32 years of 
it) including a bike accident yielding a broken 
sternum. He was diagnosed as having a herni- 
ated disk. To rectify his situation he finally 
had a lumbar micro-discectomy in mid Octo- 
ber, the same operation that put Joe Montana 
of the San Francisco 49ers on his back— so to 

Although born and raised in New Jersey, 
Dr. Hetherington graduated from The James 
Madison University in Virginia and received 
his Ph.D. from Virginia Tech. During the 

summer between his junior and senior years 
he met his soon-to-be wife. They met in July, 
were engaged in August and married in 
March of 1976. They have two wee urchins 
lovingly named "Young Huck", and Geof- 

Most everyone who knew Dr. Hethering- 
ton realized that he was an avid baseball fan— 
GO METS! His best characteristics are his 
easy-going personality and his love of being 
with people. He spent his weekends fixing 
things around the house and playing with his 
boys. He had a provocative philosophy of 
life, "Everyone, I think, once a day should 
listen to Led Zepplin cranked at least to ten — 
and if it would go higher that would be quite 

excellent!" To graduating seniors. Dr. Heth- 
erington would like to give this ad- 
vice — "You can have anything you want if 
you really want to work for it. Almost noth- 
ing is unattainable. Don't be discouragd, 
hang in there, nobody ever said it was going 
to be easy. Don't ever think you can't do 
something because you're not good enough. 
It's better to have tried and failed than to not 
have tried and wondered." The Yamacraw 
staff on behalf on the entire student body 
would like to congratulate Dr. Hetherington 
on his tenure which was granted this year. It's 
great to have you, Bruce! 

bysitter for a day, Bruce Hetherington often brings 
his boys to school to give wife Lyn a brealf.

Those who stayed discovered that Hot-lanta got it's 

nickname for a reason, but they bore the climate and 

pressures of summer school remarkably well. Some even 

enjoyed it. After all . . . 

Some Like It Hot 

The Summer of 1986 was the hottest in 
recent memory and not just because of the 
high temperatures and scarce rainfall. Class- 
work may have occupied the minds of stu- 
dents during the week, but the weekends 
were their own to party. SAE, Psi Chi, Tri 
Sigma and Chi Omega hosted their share of 
well attended parties. 

Summer school students spent long hours 
at the pool — day and night. There was more 
than one occasion when students were 
caught after hours in the pool — arid some 
were "thought to be such leaders!" Local At- 
lanta attractions, Stone Mountain and Six 
Flags, also created escapes from campus. The 
amusements for students who took summer 

classes. Some of the favorite off campus han- 
gouts were: PJ Hailey's, Denny's, and Benni- 

Many students took the opportunity to 
work over the summer vacation while the 
others took it easy in the sun. Along with the 
"gang" at the Hyatt Rivinia— Frank Beaty, 
David Turner, Darryl Wade, and Gary For- 
d — Atonella Grandi spent the summer work- 
ing. She interned with the Georgia Shake- 
speare Festival, producing King Lear, and The 
Taming of the Shrew, which was located in a 
tent on Anderson Field. The festival staged 
the productions for two months, giving stu- 
dents a discount for the critically acclaimed 

Nerves were frayed and temperatures flew 
during the long hot months of summer, but 
students braved the elements while making 
the most of their hves on campus.

Ken Nishimura 

90 ^"fietttf 

Dr. Ken Nishimura would like to be remembered as a 
"man of decent humanity," one who gave students "a 
reasonable world view." For this, he said, he would like to 
think that his teaching "helped to close cultural bonds . . . 

Helping East Meet West. 

Dr. Ken Nishimura has definitely come a 
long way. The professor of philosophy was 
born and grew up in Tokyo, Japan. Nishimura 
recalls that the educational system then, at the 
school he attended, was only nominal. He add- 
ed that a normal school day included "... 
practical, military drills" and school atten- 
dance "dwindled to almost nill." As a boy, he 
was witness to many of the horrors evoked by 
the second World War. In March of 1945, just 
five months before the war ended, he watched 
his home being destroyed by bombs. He was 
only twelve at the time: "It's miraculous that 
I'm still alive," he said. "About half of the 
people in the town where I lived were killed — I 
was literally stepping over corpses in the 
streets." In the same year, in August of 1945, 
Dr. Nishimura journeyed to Hiroshima, where 
he became aware of the untoUed destruction 
caused by the atomic bomb. "A feeling of 
helplessness rushed through me as I saw what I 
saw ... all the debris and wreckage, the wood- 
en houses turned to dust and scraps, window 

panes melted like candy, bent iron poles. 
There was nothing left." But Nishimura said 
his feelings were mixed about the war; "I was 
repulsed on the one hand by the awesome and 
inhumane destruction, but on the other hand, I 
realized that it was we who started the war." 
But all in all, he agreed that "War is," most 
definitely, "hell." 

It was Dr. Nishimura's father who inspired 
his dream of becoming a Christian minister, 
says Nishimura. "I wanted to be able to preach 
the gospel of Jesus Christ." In 1948, he gave his 
life to Jesus Christ, and, as he says, "My whole 
life was transformed." His life dedicated to 
God, Nishimura left Japan to come to the U.S. 
in 1954. He landed in California, where he 
attended Pasadena College for four years. 
From there, he went on to the Asbury The- 
ological Seminary for three years, and after- 
wards, went to teach at Emory University in 
Atlanta. He was working on his doctorate 
when he was approached by Dr. Donald Ag- 
new at Oglethorpe and asked to teach. In 1964, 

he accepted the offer, and the rest, as they say, 
is history. 

In the same year, 1964, Nishimura was or- 
dained a minister of the Methodist Church. 
"Teaching and the ministry are not very differ- 
ent," asserts Nishimura. "I was called to teach 
here; I am convinced of that. My parish is 
Oglethorpe University and the class is my pul- 
pit. But occasionally, I would like to have my 
own church. I might do it when I retire." 

Dr. Nishimura said his greatest joy is to see 
his students "... translating the teachings of 
philosophy into their own intellectual insight." 
He also said, "It is one of the best rewards and 
deepest compliments." Dr. Nishimura advises 
students to look at life "... in its total per- 
spective and to look ahead." He urges them to 
be in service to God and mankind, "... taking 
time to seek rewards through unselfish pur- 
suits." He is a firm believer that peace is the 
"most crucial issue of mankind."

When a few well-liked staff members 
left, the replacements were at Leist 

Moore Than Expected 

When Edd Wheeler was fired from his 
position as Dean of Community Life, it was 
for many students no surprise. But over the 
summer, when three women told of their res- 
ignations, many people were shocked. Kath- 
leen Ganey, Women's Housing Director 
recently promoted to Director of Housing, 
left to work in sales in Alabama. That same 
week, Martha Sledge — Kathleen's replace- 
ment as W.H.D.— also resigned to give her- 
self more time to dedicate to finishing her 
graduate studies. Julie Weyer, Assistant to 
the Director of Financial Aid, left due to 
her recent wedding. 

Enjoying themselves during Kathleen Ganey's going 
away party ate Carole Duffy and Carol Johnston. 

The administration took months in replac- 
ing Dean Wheeler— his successor was Don- 
ald Moore. Kathleen and Martha though, left 
suddenly and the administration had to act 
quickly because the fall semester was just six 
weeks away. Leigh Anne Leist was hired in 
Kathleen's place, and Martha was replaced by 
Ruth Ryan— a student and at the time a Resi- 
dent Advisor. The administration hired a 
student again in replacing Julie with Carolyn 
Proper— a great loss to the volleyball team, 
but an excellent addition to the staff.

places Julie Weyer's biidal hat (made up of the bows and

No matter what a student's personality, 
there was always a club that he could join. 
Whether it was serving the community 
through Alpha Phi Omega, Rotaract or 
Circle K; exploring new cultures through 
The International Club or The Orient Club; 
or learning new ways to express ideas 
through The Tower, Stormy Petrel, Yama- 
craw or Thalian Society, students always 
kept busy in their extra-curricular activi- 

The University Singers and The Players 
not only gave students an opportunity to 
enhance and "show off their talents, but 
also offered travel experiences. The Uni- 
versity Singers left for New York for a fun 

filled weekend, while The Players Direc- 
tor, Lane Anderson, offered tours of the 
major theatrical companies in Atlanta, 
and took the children's play — Androcles 
and the Lion— on the road to local ele- 
mentary schools. 

With some clubs, like The Thalian So- 
ciety, meeting once a week, no matter 
what a person's study schedule, there was 
always room for at least one extra-curricu- 
lar activity. 

And no matter which club a student 
belonged to, or what activity they were 
doing, it seemed that the entire 
Oglethorpe community worked together 
to make each project the talk of the town.

The Oglethorpe Christian Fellowship 
was an interdenominational Christian 
group. Affiliated with Intervarsity Chris- 
tian Fellowhip, OCF sought to provide 
students with spiritual training, opportuni- 
ties for worship, and an accepting atmo- 
sphere of Christian love. OCF was charac- 
terized by one regular, large group 
meeting per week, supplemented by "fam- 
ily groups." These family groups— eight 
to twelve students in each — were investi- 
gative Bible study groups as well as a 
source of strength and bonding through 
prayer. OCF sponsored the Thanksgiving 
Chapel Service and participated in the Eas- 
ter Sunrise Service held on the campus.

yearbook, is one of the biggest 
highlights of each school year. The 
staff works hard to insure that each 
student is represented in the book. 
The Stormy Petrel, the newspa- 
per, tries to represent the current 
events at the school and through- 
out the world. Not only is it an 
accurate record of news but also a 
place for students to express their 
own ideas. The Tower, the school 
magazine, is the creative outlet for 
the students. The staff encourages 
students to contribute poetry, 
prose, artwork, and photography. 
All publications encourage any in- 
terested student to become in- 
volved in production.

Just as Oglethorpe University offered 
much to students, the Greek Life, too, 
offered much. Being Greek was one of the 
more beneficial experiences a student 
could have as he began or continued his 
college career. It provided him with many 
opportunities to become a well-rounded 
individual as he completes four of the 
most important years of his life. 

There were many aspects of the Greek 
Life which made it worthwhile. These as- 
pects included the opportunities to play 
sports through intramurals, to help others 
by working for philanthropies, and to 
compete in such special events as Greek 
Week and Rush. Being Greek also bene- 
fitted as it encouraged members to be 
mvolved in campus activities, provided 
members with opportunities for leader- 
ship, promoted school spirit, and helped 

members grow as they worked together 
with brothers and sisters. But, most im- 
portant, being Greek provided members 
with the opportunity to have fun. With 
band parties, socials, dances, beach week- 
ends, and special events, the Greek Life 
was always filled with excitement and 
good times. As members of the Greek 
system grew close to their brothers and 
sisters through these many experiences, 
they also developed a strong sense of loy- 
alty and pride, not only to their respective 
fraternities and sororities, but also to Og- 
lethorpe University, which helped the 
Greek system to remain united and 
strong. The newest member of the Greek 
system was Sigma Sigma Sigma — their 
chartering was without a doubt the talk of 
the town!

If it wasn't Alan Royalty shooting at the net

an ace proving that Petrel Power was still in

Poor Boys and Soccer 

A Kick in the Grass 

Arriving early before the semes- 
ter began, the soccer team prepared 
for the new season. As always, the 
team brought with them their spe- 
cial enthusiasm to the campus. The 
team was known for their never- 
say-die attitude, tremendous hustle 
on the field and their fantastic spir- 
it! Their spirit was evident on and 
off the field as many became a 
tight-knit group— the Poor Boys. 
Continually improving throughout 
the season, the freshmen and soph- 

omores contributed greatly to the 
team with new talent and spirit, 
while upperclassmen anchored the 
team with experience, consistency 
and emotional support. As the team 
improved, the support from the stu- 
dent body increased equally. Many 
times, loyal followers, including 
students and parents, could be seen 
relaxmg on the sidelines enjoying 
an afternoon of soccer on the sunny 
fall days.

Oglethorpe Track & Cross-Country 

On the Move 

For the first time in many years, 
C) U. put together a track and field 
team for the spring. The team was 
very competitive and traveled to 
several meets given by surrounding 
schools. The team was comprised 

Leading the pack at the Emory track, 
Frank Pitman sets a school record in the 1500 
meter event. The winnine: and record time 

of several of our regualr cross- 
country team members. This added 
season of competition helped keep 
the guys in shape during the off 
season. The team was organized by 
Marshall Nason who also serves as 
coach of the cross-country team. 
Once the new school term began , 
O.U.'s cross-country team could be 
seen everyday around campus 

chalking up mile after mile. The in- 
tense practice paid off with good 
performances by Rich Briggs, 
Mack Van't Reit, and Barry Cars- 
well who also lent experience to the 
young team. This year, like the last 
couple of years, produced a team to 
be proud of, and team members 
feel like many good seasons are still 
to come.

Vamos! As typical in most sports, the Wo- 
mes's Volleyball Team crowded together for i 
a team yell to boost their spirits. "Vamos", 
the Spanish term "let's go" was coined by the 
favorite "bird" Monica Eidel 

Leading the team in both skill and spirit 
was captain Angie Rupe. Angie finished her 
last year playing for the Lady Petrels success- 
fully, having an 85.25% serving, 229 assists, 49 
stuff blocks and 28 block assists, 65 digs and 
50 saves. 

The Bird. Monica Eidelman provided a 
valuable asset to the team. Her fine playing 
skill helped her achieve a position on the All- 
District team.

Even though the team lost Carolyn Proper in the beginning 

of the year, with their spirit and persistence the Lady Petrels 

ended the season 

Coming up on Top 

Freshman Power. With little volleyball ex- 
perience, freshman Kerensa Shoemake 
quickly learned the skills needed to place her 
as a regular in the team's starting line-up. 

The Oglethorpe Lady Petrels 
Volleyball team ended the regular 
season with seven straight wins to 
finish 19.^11 overall and 10-0 in Dis- 
trict Area games. The Lady Petrels 
had best district record and hosted 
the District 25 playoffs. 

The regular season was a highly 
successful one. After losing All 
District Player Carolyn Proper early 
in the year the Lady Petrels 
bounced back to win 19 matches 
losing only 11. In total games they 
were 43-23. They were the youngest 
team in the district with one senior, 

Angle Rupe; one junior, Traci 
Johnston; two sophomores, Eidel- 
man, Caldwell; and two freshmen, 
M J. Stuart and Kerensa Showmake 
in the starting line up. 

"The team learned to play to- 
gether well as the season pro- 
gressed. And as the players became 
more familiar with each other the 
timing of the offense and the cover- 
age of the defense became better. 
Seven of the team's eleven losses 
came at the hands of Division I 
schools." said Coach Jim Owen.

Giving it 
Their Best Shot 

Recruitment of intelligent and 
skilled athletes from junior colleges 
and high schools had given the 
team a unique group of competi- 
tors to be found nowhere else in the 
area Increased support for the team 
had evolved and the team returned 
this sign of support by playing an 
exciting season of basketball Al- 
though their record wasn't exactly 
what they wanted, each game had 
been considered a toss up of who 
would win until the very last min- 

Contrasting with past years, their 

games away from the familiar court 
saw the Petrels play with pride and 
authority and the team developed 
into a tough road team Adding to 
the rivalry that had developed be- 
tween Shorter College, the Petrels 
have started to develop a rivalry 
with Emory. The match-up began 
with a great start as the Petrels won 
the first game between the two in a 
thriller at the fieldhouse. 

The season was filled with many 
wins and some losses, but overall 
the basketball team came out on

A new feeling swept throughout 
the campus— students found that it 
was "okay" to express their enthusi- 
asm for basketball and other school 
activities. Unlike years in the recent 
past, students began to adamantly 
support the soccer, volleyball, and 
basketball teams and kept their ac- 
tive support of intramurals. 

Contributing greatly to this ac- 
complishment was the newly 
formed pep band and a contest set 
up by the athletic program in which 
organizations competed to see what 
group could get the most atten- 
dance at each game throughout the 
year. And "Petey" was blessed with 
a new costume— a gold and black 
bird dressed in a basketball uni- 

The pride shown was attributed 
to many things on and off campus, 
but it was truly the athletic pro- 
gram, reinforced by the present 
spirit in the hearts of the students, 
that made such an impact. 

Give me a "P!" cries Petey the Petrel. Our 
cheerful mascot was always on hand to toot 
the team to victory. Scott Soioway was one 
of the usual people to play "Petey" duiing 
the games.

Springtime Fun! 

A sharp grounder to short, over

pionship, but it's intramural Softball 
on the Oglethorpe campus. Just 
when the weather begins to show 
signs of emerging from a long 
Georgia winter, the softball season 
hits O.U. Again this year, many 

teams were represented from the 
fraternity and independent sectors 
of the campus. By March, everyone 
is looking forward to getting out 
and taking a break to hit fly balls. 
Because of its immense popularity, 
it's easy to round up a group and

Run, Kick, Pass, Punt— 

Flag Football!! 

Button hook. Fly pattern. Roll- 
out left. To some people these 
words may mean little, but to the 
men and women who compete in 
intramural football, the words and 
the plays they describe may mean 
the difference between a winning 
and losing season. Of course, flag 
football is not a major college 
sport, but for the O.U. student, it is 

as close as he or she can come to 
achieving gridiron glory. You can- 
not tell the player that O.U. football 
means nothing, because for the 
hour it takes to play, the only thing 
important to that person is to make 
sure he rips the flag off of his oppo- 

The flag football program at 
O.U. is strong, and many men and 

women teams are represented. This 
was a good year for many teams, 
with most either equalling or sur- 
passing last year's results. The best 
of the pack were represented by the 
GDI team for the men, who again 
had a perfect season, and the Chi 
Omega team for the ladies. 
Throughout the season, the compe- 
tition was tight, and at times play 

was outstanding considering that 
no one receives football scholar- 
ships. This statement was best evi- 
dent in the men's championship 
game during which the GDI team 
had to play 3 overtime periods be- 
fore finally beating a relentless Chi 
Phi team.

ntramural Volleyball Players Think 

Bump! Set! Spike! 

Inside the Fieldhouse on a cold 
winter night, O.U. students could 
be found playing a sport usually 
reserved for the beaches in the sum- 
mer. Volleyball season brings out 
many men and women athletes to 

show one another their skill in the 
beach-bum sport. The enthusiasm 
for competition is so great that 
three divisions had to be created to 
handle all the teams with their var- 
ious skill levels. In the upper divi- 

sion, good play was often seen, and 
intensity levels rose when the match 
was on the line. Often the gym 
rocked with the sound of the team

Whether it was geeky Herb going to 
the Burger King in a town near you, or 
Donna Mills in a bear suit promoting Sun 
Country Wine Coolers on television, adver- 
tisers inundated the public with a variety 
of approaches to entice consumers into 
purchasing their products. These ap- 
proaches ranged from beautiful celebrities 
in ads to using catchy music and slogans. 

Advertisers chose some of the most 
popular celebrities of the year to endorse 
their products. If Max Headroom's com- 
puterized humor did not persuade many 
consumers into "catching the wave" of 
'New Coke, then maybe Bruce Willis' pro- 
vocative song convinced the public to 
purchase Seagram's Golden Wine Coolers. 
Lionel Ritchie rewrote some of his hits for 
use in Fepsi commercials, while a Molly 
Ringwald look-alike declared her devo- 
tion to Jordache jeans. 

Some ad campaigns were successful 

and others pretty much hit the dirt. With 
high expectations. Burger King launched a 
major national campaign featuring 
Herb — a man who has never eaten at a 
Burger King—who visited Burger Kings 
across the nation. Their endeavors to 
make Herb a household name and in- 
crease their business over McDonald's and 
Wendy's were pretty futile as the public 
responded negatively to the ads. Count- 
less other campaigns met the same fate 
throughout the year — good intention gave 
way to much wasted money. 

Advertising became an increasingly 
competitive industry. Companies spent as- 
tronomical amounts of time and money 
searching for the perfect slogan. Between 
cola wars and fast food battles, consumers 
were bombarded with gimics aimed at 
making a specific product the talk of the

Oglethorpe Day began bright 
and early for most students with 
rescheduled Thursday morning 
classes. The festivities truly began, 
though, when members of the stu- 
dent body, faculty, staff and alumni 
assembled in Lupton Auditorium 
to view what many referred to as 
the most successful and enjoyable 
presentation in the last few years. 

Coordination of the program 
was lead by Dean Donald Moore, 
who felt that a lighter approach 
would make the day more fun for 
all and increase student participa- 
tion. With that in mind, he asked 
Lane Anderson and Hank Bunnell 
to combine their talents and create 
a special presentation for the open- 
ing ceremony. 

Mr. Anderrson's past experience 
with the l')Oth convocation and 
Hank's 55rF video experience was 
Enjoying the convocation. Brent Bishop, 
Rise Nachman, Joey Masden, Kevin Wams- 
ley, Steve Cumbee, Mike Clance, And) 
Geeter, and Hank Bunnell watch the video 
tape that Lane Anderson and Hank Bunnell 
put together 

just the ticket to devise an enter- 
taining film for everyone. Their ar- 
chive-hound film was a combination 
1938 "Two days at Oglethorpe" 
promotional film and a tape made 
throughout January that showed 
up-to-date scenes. 

Also included in the program 
was an audience participation sec- 
tion where Mr. Anderson inter- 
viewed various people to be added 
to the film. Dr. Manning PattiUo 
was asked to describe the average 
day in the life of the president and 
proceeded to explain to all that fu- 
ture policy would include no admit- 
tance to students with SAT scores 
over S)00 and grades below C would 
abolished! (If only that were true!) 

The festivities concluded on a 
high note with the introduction of 
the Stormy Petrel March (1924), dis- 
covered by James Bohart, arranged 
"Is there anyone you want to say hi to?" 
asks Lane Anderson to Toni Tatum, a Senior 
from California Toni was just one of the few 
students Lane Anderson interviewed during 
additional taping for the Oglethorpe Day 

by Irwin Ray and performed by the 
University Singers. The audience 
joined in to show some real school 

Leaving the auditorium, the 
crowd reassembled at the Emerson 
Student Center for a luncheon pre- 
pared by Epicure. The luncheon 
met with some great success as stu- 

dents wistfully asked "Can't we eat 
like this everyday.-'" The crowd 
mingled through the carnival atmo- 
sphere and a wide variety of foods 
including "Not-Joe's Nachos," 
"Marta Subs," and the "Var-City," 
were served. There was a great feel- 
ing of spirit and fun that made the 
entire day a huge success.

Atlanta's snowfall of five to 
six inches did more than kick- 
off Spring semester '87, it stilled 
the busy city's traffic, slowed the 
nation through the closing of 
Hartsfield International Airport, 
and brought joy to every boy, 
girl, and college student who 
got to stay home from school. 

The slow but steady white 
stuff began falling the night be- 
fore, becoming seamless blan- 
kets of snow by the next morn- 
ing. After the exciting news that 
Oglethorpe was closed, on-cam- 

pus students lost no time prepar- 
ing for fun. Gloves and scarves 
and boots were donned to stave 
off the cold. Cameras came out 
of cases to record the memora- 
ble scene. And plastic trays were 
smuggled out of the cafeteria at 
breakfast and lunch to be em- 
ployed as sleds. 

It was only a short time be- 
fore the hill between the upper 
quadrangle and Traer Hall be- 
came a slick slope as students 
whizzed down on trays and gar- 
bage can lids. Later in the after- 

noon "Tennis Hill", a slope 
equal only to the Six Flags 
Scream Machine for steep- 
ness, was created between the 
tennis courts and the track. This 
one was definitely not for the 
faint of heart. 

For some students, creating 
"snow art" was a more enjoy- 
able pastime than hitting the 
slof)es. Snowmen, women and 
animals of every size popped up 
across the campus, adorned by 
the latest in fashion pinestraw 
and twigs. A few creations made 

artistic statements; a particular 
favorite, entitled "The Woman 
Scorned," was said to be an ac- 
curate representation of O.U.'s 
dating scene. 

By Monday, most of the evi- 
dence of the fun-filled weekend 
had melted away. Atlanta and 
the rest of Georgia was back to 
business as usual, almost as if 
nothing had occurred just four 
days before. 

^^^« the midst of all the excite- 
^ M ment during the first few 
inches, Teri Wall and John 
Wuichet take a minute out of their 
fun snowball fight to get a picture 
taken. Assuming that school would 
he cancelled, many students stayed 
up all night to enjoy the unique 

^ts Bryan and I walked 
MmiA along the campus tak- 
^ §^ ing photos of all the 
snow, we found it pretty incredible 
that it actually snowed this much. 
But even more incredible was the 
miniature Lupton Hall that we 
stumbled upon in our journey — it 
was very impressive. Denice Sayers 

00%^gcilking behind the 
^^Wm courts, I couldn't even 
^rW^ imagine the size of the 
hill which we were approaching. Be- 
fore we were finished, our uneasin- 
ess had turned to recklessness as we 
formed a chain ofsledders hurdling 
down the hill. David Turner 

7 here's no business like 
snow business, said Gary 
Hand when describing this 
photograph. Gary, Beth Eckard, 
and about three-fourths of the stu- 
dent body had snowball fights 
throughout the night.

The year had hardly begun 
when disaster hit the U.S. space 
program, with the explosion of 
the Challenger shuttle. The na- 
tion reeled with shock as the im- 
ages of that ill-fated launch were 
replayed on TV: 73 seconds of 
soaring American spirit, of 
American strength . . . and then 
there was nothing. A plume of 
smoke . . . imprinted in our 

Tragedy around the globe . . . 
In the USSR, a serious nuclear 
accident occurred at Chernobyl, 
north of Kiev. Only a few deaths 
were initially recorded, but the 
final toll may never be known, 
as radiation poisoning kills in 
decades, not days. 

Trouble for Libya was tri- 
umph for the USA when Pres, 
Reagan ordered air strikes in 
April. The bombing was in re- 
taliation for Libyan-sponsored 
terrorism in Europe. 

"People Power" triumphed 

in the Philippines in early 1986, 
as Pres. Ferdinand JMarcos was 
ousted after he tried to once 
again steal an election. Cory 
Aquino was installed as the new 
President, but her first few 
months in office were plagued 
by the continuing insurgency 
raging in her nation. After the 
ouster of Marcos, tackiness also 
struck the island nation, as thou- 
sands of shoes were discovered 
in the presidential palace; they 
had been purchased by Imelda 

The year 1986 also brought 
the Meese Commission Report 
on Pornography, a rather ludi- 
crous piece of work that was dis- 
missed by its critics as unscien- 
tific. Many claimed that the 
outcome of the commission's 
investigation had been pre-de- 
termined by Mr. Meese. 

And then there was the Statue 
of Liberty Centennial Celebra- 
tion, a celebration of the tri- 

umph of American spirit . . . pre- 
sented with American overkill. 
Tackiness was the rule, perhaps 
best shown by the 200 dancing 
Elvis impersonators who were a 
part of the glitz. Needless to say, 
"Entertainment Tonight" 
had a field day. 

Other issues of 1986: America 
swapped Chief Justices, as War- 
ren Burger stepped down and 
William Renquist took over. 
Drugs became the throwaway 
issue of the 1986 election, as ev- 
eryone postured to be more 
"anti-drug" than his opponent 
(as if any candidate was truly 
pro-drugs anyway!). In the elec- 
tion, the Democrats re-captured 
the Senate, and Georgia gained 
a new senator when Wyche 
Fowler defeated Mack Mat- 
tingly in a bitter campaign. 
America got substantive tax re- 
form, assuring accounting firms 
of continued business for years 
to come. And the summit in 

Rekjavik ended in disagreement 
and disarray. 

Two other big issues as 1986 
became 1987: Ronald Reagan 
watched his Teflon chip away, 
as the "Iranamok" situation con- 
tinued to fester; damage control 
attempts by the wounded ad- 
ministration continued into the 
new year. Also, there was the 
march on Forsyth County to 
demonstrate for Civil Rights. 

But perhaps the biggest event 
of 1986 — the one everyone was 
watching intently— was the mys- 
tery assault on newsman Dan 
Rather. The CBS anchor was at- 
tacked on Park Ave. in New 
York by two men who asked 
him several times, "Kenneth, 
what is the frequency?" Rather 
refused to answer (a cover-up, 
perhaps.') and was summarily 
beaten. Truly, this was the Talk 
of the Town. 

^kthink the people of America 
^/ need to remember all the as- 
9 tronauts that were killed in 
the space shuttle explosion, not just 
the first civilian. Elizabeth 

^^t was about time that the 
^M president stopped talking 
9 about standing up against 
terrorism and started to actually 
do something to deter future vio- 
lence. Violent men only learn their 
lessons through violence, and I 
think Quaddafi learned his. 
Tom James 


ands Across America 

was a big success in 
many ways. It showed 
that Americans can come to the 
aid of their own people, just as 
well as to others. Most important- 
ly, the event raised consciousness 
and shed some light on a growing 
problem. But even though it was 
very successful, we still have a long 
to go. LaDonna Barros. 

00%^g^'^^ '^« Chernobyl ac- 
J^fJ cident was a terrible 
•^i^ tragedy, I hope the rest

Although there were a great 
many good-byes said to stars in 
the entertainment world— James 
Cagney, Benny Goodman, Gary 
Grant, Liberace, Ray MiUand, 
Ricky Nelson, Marlin Perkins, 
and Kate Smith to name a few- 
there were also a great many 
hellos and welcome backs. 

Bette Midler, the queen of 
comedy, came back strong in 
two of the big blockbusters of 
1986, Ruthless People and Down 
and Out in Beverly Hills, and 
Outrageous Fortune in early 1987. 
Top Gun cruised into town and 
became the blockbuster movie 
of the year — grossing over 170 
million dollars! Marlee Matlin 
made her debut in Children of a 

Lesser God, becoming one of the 
most sought after starlets. Paul 
Hogan, debuting in "Crocodile" 
Dundee, charmed the nation in 
the surprise hit of the year 
(grossing over 100 million). Si- 
gourney Weaver came back to 
the Big Screen and earned the 
title Ramholini while fighting off 

In music, Madonna tied leg- 
endary Diana Ross for being the 
woman to have the most num- 
ber one hits (according to Bill- 
hoard) when Open Your Heart 
hit number one in January. 
Cyndi Lauper, coming back 
after a two year absence, sur- 
prised many critics and fans with 
True Colors, her follow-up album 

to her number one debut She's So 
Unusual. The Boss, Bruce 
Springsteen, came out with 
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street 
Band Live 1975-1985 and set re- 
cord sales all over the nation, 
jumping to number one on the 
album charts. The Go-Gos' split 
and lead singer Belinda Carlylse 
lost forty pounds and went 
solo — her debut album as a so- 
loist came out strong but 
dropped from the charts after 
only releasing two singles. 

On television, ABC's com- 
edy-drama series. Moonlighting 
popularized co-stars Cybil Shep- 
ard and Bruce WiUis. Willis, 
within his two years on the series 
became one of the nation's fa- 

vorite television personalities. 
While off the set of Moonlight- 
ing, he found time to make Sea- 
gram's Wine Coolers commer- 
cials; an album with Motown; a 
movie; and toured with his 
band — Bruno and the Heaters — 
which was shown on HBO. 

The most phenomenal thing 
in the entertainment world was 
the popularity of Bill Cosby 's se- 
ries, The Cosby Show. The show 
stayed in the number one slot 
for most of the year and charged 
an astronomical price for each 
commercial spot! With the help 
of Family Ties, Cheers, Night 
Court, and L.A. Law, The Cosby 
Show kept Thursday night "the 
night" to watch television. 

7 'he Taming of the Shrew, 
along with King Lear, 
was one of the shows that The 
Georgia Shakespeare Festival — 
based at Oglethorpe over the sum- 
mer— performed for their inaugu- 
ral year. 

^^^est known for her role in 
(^ The Bride of Franken- 
stein, Elsa Lanchester was an 
MGM starlette in the forties, she 
passed away during the winter. 

^ymmortalized through his role 
as the Scarecrow, the brain- 
less friend to Dorothy in MGM's 
1959 musical The Wizard of Oz, 
Ray Bolger was the last survivor 
of the main cast. 

7ennis toughie John McEn- 
roe and Academy Award 
winning actress Tatum O'Neal 
(Paper Moon) married ten weeks 
after Tatum gave birth to Kevin 
Jack. Also married were Academy 
Award winner Timothy Hutton 
(Ordinary People) and Acade- 
my Award nominated Debra 
Winger (Terms of Endearment).

7oday it is not a hlackj 
white issue. Among the 
marchers there were no distinc- 
tions between skin color, because as 
far as the anti- demonstrators 
were concerned, we were all the 
same. I feel it is basically a ques- 
tion of ignorance. Ruth Ritch 

^Jt 's totally incomprehensible to 
me that people still have those 
feelings. Anyway, at the rate At- 
lanta is growing, Forsyth County 
will become a suburb soon, and 
they 'II be forced to integrate. They 
might as well face reality now! 
Jervette Nunn 

^J^Jhen 25,000 marchers, 
€^^/ 1500 National Guards- 
men, and another 1000 assorted 
police and federal agents were re- 
quired to guarantee the rights we 
were taught to be alienable, some 
part of our educational system 
had failed. I can feel only pity for 
the ignorance that supports rac- 
ism. Brent Evitt 

7^he fact that 20,000 people 
participated in this 
march— people from all over the 
United States—shows that "For- 
syth Counties" are no longer ac- 
ceptable. Dr. Deborah Woolley

When we turned this corner 
from the road we marched on to 
go to the site of the rally, the 
marchers were on the road and 
the sidewalks were lined with 
mobs of KKK and people from 
Forsyth County who were pro- 
testing us being there. I was ter- 
rified throughout the whole 
march of these people. I didn't 
understand them or thier beliefs. 
But, when we got that close to 
them at that corner, I wasn't 
afraid anymore. After being a 
part of the people surrounding 
me for a mile of walking peace- 
fully, the mob that confronted 
us at the end didn't stir up fear 
anymore, only sadness for them. 
They are people under those 
sheets and behind those rebel 
flags. They were just as scared of 
us, 20,000 strong, as we were of 
them. It was really sad and I'll 
never forget that day or those 

Shelly Alford 

I was dissappointed that it 

was turned from a potentially al- 
truistic gesture to a political 
show, but all in all I still felt 
good when it was over. Much of 
the annoying delays during the 
march were caused by the disor- 
ganization of these political 
grandstanders. I was amazed 
that some people could actually 
show so little compassion for 
another human being. They 
hated us. I'm sure some wanted 
to kill us. 

I went only because I'd never 
been in a march, I was encour- 
aged by the big turn out. I was 
offended by the t-shirt and ban- 
ner salesmen. I was bored with 
the redundant "Go home nig- 
ger." I drew the line when one of 
the speakers suggested we give 
back the land the blacks aban- 
doned in 1915. I was tired of 
standing for so long. The Na- 
tional Guard was more frighten- 
ing than the counterprotestors. 
The counterdemonstrators 
probably feel more intense ha- 

tred than before. I felt a hight- 
ened unity among the march- 
ers — I've never heard so many 
"Excuse me's' in a day. I'm glad I 
went. I changed no one's mind, 
but helped make a point. 


The men selling T-shirts and 
posters reduced it to the level of 
a circus, but at the same time, I 
think the 20,000 on our side 
went away with a new-found 
dedication to the civil rights 
movement. I'm glad I went. 

John Wvichet 

Being part of the march was 
an intense experience — the 
Klansmen in hoods, the thou- 
sands of National Guardsman, 
ten-year old kids shouting ob- 
scenities they didn't understand, 
the unity of the marchers regard- 
less of color, age, or sex, the 
posters proclaiming James Earl 
Ray and Lee Harvey Oswald as 
heroes, the astonishment of a 
people who had never left the 
fifties when they realized the rest 

of the world had progressed . . . 
Some "Libertarians" who didn't 
march felt it was a waste of 
time — fortunately , their attitude 
was ignored in the sixties and on 
January 24th because Forsyth 
County is not exclusive of Geor- 
gia or the U.S. and the violation 
of civil rights is not exclusive of 
an issue of color.
