Trave Is

of a

Past

Presid e nt

Have you ever lost a role of film to a neighborhood

monkey? Or landed on a “moving” glacier? Or

floated your cares away in a drifting basket?

Dr. I. Lynd Esch, president emeritus of In-

diana Central College, has enriched himself and

those who know him through these and other

travel experiences during his 1971 trip around

the world. Traveling 35,000 miles by plane, train,

boat, bus, and car to places of interest in the

Southern Hemisphere, he designed the “fun” trip

himself, which was made possible by the ICC

student body as a gift in appreciation of twenty-

five years of service to the college.

The past president left in mid-October and

spent six weeks “island and continent hopping”

westward. Retreating or advancing (whichever

you prefer) into springtime below the equator,

he went from Honolulu and American Samoa to

the islands of New Zealand. From the magical

greenness of a New Zealand spring, he continued

by plane to Melbourne, by train to Canberra and

Sydney, Australia’s own “San Francisco,” and

then by plane again across the continent’s mid-

sect ion.

Djokjakarta, Java, beckoned him next, then

the island of Sumatra, then Singapore on the

Bon voyage to Dr. Exh from President Sease and Student Council President

Steve HUM

Malay Peninsula, and Bangkok, Thailand. Leav-

ing Indonesia, Dr Esch continued his journey to

Nairobi, Kenya, via Bombay, India, and to

Johannesburg, South Africa, wiith side trips to the

Amboseli Game Reserve and Kruger National

Park. Crossing the Atlantic Ocean and arriving

in Rio de Janeiro, the traveler continued on to

Brazil’s most heavily populated and industrial

city, St. Paulo, and then to Lima, Peru. Visiting

Cusco, Peru, a jumping off place for Mach-

upicchu, the “Lost City of the Incas,” and return-

ing to Lima, he flew by plane to Miami and then

home. Refreshed and enriched, having visited

more than forty countries on this and previous

travels, Dr. Esch would, of course, endorse the

world as a great place to visit!

Hearing the educator reminisce about his

adventures is pure joy and wonder. With his

alert mind attuned to even the smallest observa-

tion, he has amazingly absorbed much factual

and enriching information as well as sampled

attitudes and perspectives around the world. One

is tempted to let his own commentary dominate,

carrying the story along, like the jet that carried

him southward and westward, or like the myriad


of islands he found sprinkled across the Pacific

and Indian Oceans.

No place in the world where the

grass is as green . . .

A favorite spot in a world of fabulous places

may be hard to find, but Dr. Esch found it when

he “entered” springtime in New Zealand. Ex-

plaining the earth’s seasonal patterns, he said,

“Everything is reversed down there. This was

October-November, and, of course, it was just six

months opposite, because New Zealand’s on the

other side of the equator. The moon crescent is

reversed, and there is no North Star on that side

of the earth’. When you turn on the faucet, water

swirls down the drain in reverse!

“New Zealand is a beautiful place. There

is no place in the world where the green is as

green as it is there in the spring. I used to think

Wisconsin and Minnesota had the greenest

springs, but they can’t compare with New Zea-

land’s. The soil is a black volcanic ash type of

soil, and it is very fertile. Things grow so pro-

lifically, unless you get up in the mountains.

And when you’re up there, of course, you have

snow all year around. But on the other levels

it’s semi-tropical and the same kind of things

bloom as in our South and Southwest, only they

grow so much faster. I saw rhododendron, for

instance, fifteen feet tall. All the trees and shrubs

are imported-no native trees of any kind. New

Zealanders have built a tremendous forestry busi-

ness in their mountains with American pine,

which grows about twice as fast as it does here.

I saw a California redwood tree that was twenty-

five years old and already was 125 feet tall.

“It has been said that there are two cities

in the world that are more British than London ;

one is Wellington, New Zealand, and the other is

Melbourne, Australia. The people are British1 only

in their accents, though. New Zealand is in many

ways American with a British accent. Australia

is, too, for that matter. You could pick New

Zealanders up and place them in rural America,

and you couldn’t tell the difference. There is much

more of a ‘free spirit’ in New Zealand and Aus-

tralia than in Britain itself.

“New Zealanders want people to immigrate

there, and there are very interesting immigra-

tion laws. The restrictions are on skills. In other

words, if you want to immigrate to New Zealand,

you must have a skill or profession that is needed.

Sumatra

Consequently, thjere is no unemployment. The

population is a little over three million. The big-

gest city is Auckland on the North Island with

about half a million people.

“The main industries are agriculture and

sheep raising. The rainfall is high and the pasture

is prolific. Sheep raisers will graze 31/2 sheep

an acre, and cattle are grazed with them. The old

American cattleman would turn over in hlis grave

if he saw this, but actually it works out very nicely

because the animals eat differently. The cattle

come along and eat, and the sheep eat what the

cattle leave. The sheep, you see, eat right down

to within an inch of the ground, and the cattle

won’t eat that far.

“There are a lot of natural phenomena in New

Zealand. For instance, there is no other place

in the world like the Glowworm Grotto near Hamil-

ton. It’s a limestone cave, small by our standards

and one you wouldn’t go very far to see. The cave

has a river running through it about forty feet

below the regular level of the cave. Steps lead

down to this river, which, almost stagnant, moves

very, very slowly. The ceiling above the river may

be fifty or sixty feet long. You’re put in a flat

boat on boards, and you don’t dare make any noise.

Cables are strung, and a fellow stands at the front


of the boat and pulls you out from the dock. You

don’t want to disturb the glowworms. This ceil-

ing is just completely lighlted with glowworms,

millions of them. And if you make noise, they’ll

turn their lights out. Now this, from a standpoint

of biology, is one of the most fascinating things

in the world.”

The glowworm, which is the larva in the life

cycle of the fly, spins himself a cocoon on the

ceiling of the cave. Dr. Esch continued, “Then hte

puts out a ‘fish line’ that he spins down, like

a spider would spin, only thicker. He’ll put twenty-

five or thirty of these down about six or eight

inches. He also puts a poison on them, turns on his

light, and sits and waits. The river below brings

in insects in eggs. These insects hatch out, and

when they come to the flight stage from the larva

to the pupa, they see that there is no light except

up on the ceiling. They fly to the light, attach

to one of these strings, are paralyzed by the

poison, reeled in by the glowworm, and serve as

his food. And that’s how the glowworm lives.

‘‘Thte glow is a cold light like the firefly’s,

only not intermittent, but regular. It’s really a

cold oxidation of the worm’s excretion. The glow-

worm can turn it off, but normally it’s on all the

time, because that’s his bait to get food. This

balance of life-enough food coming in through

this river to keep these glowworms alive-has

been going on through the centuries. It’s really

quite an attraction.

“Another natural phenomena in New Zealand

is the thennobelt across the North Island. The

belt is about a mile and a half wide, similar to

the kind we have at Yellowstone Park. There

are geysers and mud pools, though there is no

Old Faithful that goes up on a regular beat. You

can drill a well there any place and get hot water.

If you have land there, build a house, and drill

a well, you have your heat and hot water from

that time on. The motel I stayed in was heated by

this thermowater. Going deeper, the New

Zealanders are able to operate a hydro-electric

power plant and get steam at 700°F.

“On the South Island are Mt. Cook and the

glaciers. I flew up to the top of Tasman Glacier

in a plane that lands and takes off on skis. Where

we landed the glacier is 1,000 feet deep. It’s about

two or three miles long and nearly a mile wide.

Th’is whole thing moves between those mountains

nine inches a day down into the valley and melts

off .”

-5-

Dr. Esch explained that, while waiting for

an airplane at Mt. Cook, the weather had to be

just right before the plane could take off: “One

of the modern miracles is that I got there. If

the weather hadn’t cleared in just two minutes,

I never would have gotten there, after waiting

three days. You put thtat in your computer and

throw it against the law of probability-that‘s

my kind of miracIe!”

Discussing Australia, Dr. Esch remarked,

“As you know, Australia has an awful lot of

wasteland. I flew from Sydney to Djokjakarta,

Java, across the thick part of the continent from

east to west . . . thousands of miles of nothing,

aboslutely nothing. . . just a lot of red soil. Immi-

gration is very much desired in Australia, for

there really isn’t that large a population. We

think of Australia as being mostly rural, but

eighty-eight percent of its people live in cities.

The rest of the continent is so very sparcely

populated,”

But even a desolate continent has its bright

spot, Dr. Esch found, exclaiming, “Sydney is a

beautiful city. It compares pretty much to San

Francisco in many ways; that is, it’s built on a

projection of water, with inlets and beaches

around it. It has a downtown area, some of which

is old and some of which is new and lovely.” When

questioned if he’d seen that popular Australian

animal, Dr. Esch laughed, “No, I didn’t see any

kangaroos !”

The government steps in. . .

The past president’s original fun trip was

somewhat “disrupted” by the Department of

State. A nephew in Congress, who is a member

of the Education and Labor Committee and was

an educator before becoming a Congressman,

knew of his uncle’s itinerary. So Dr. Esch received

a call four weeks before departure requesting

that he visit five American schools abroad for the

Department of State and the Education Com-

mittee. Dr. Esch inserted these visitations into

a comfortable travel package that he’d already

planned. He was grateful for the opportunity to

supplement his fun plans with a meaningful educa-

tional purpose.

There are approximtely 135 American schools

over the world, most of them started after World

War 11. Dr. Esch commented that these schools

are a basic part of “a tremendous kind of inter-

national-relations structure that you don’t hear

In this programmed age of “inputs”

and “print-outs,” most people know

that computers “speak their own

language.” But Bill Wilson, an imagi-

native and talented senior Math major

at ICC, has not only taught the com-

puter to speak a human language, but

a foreign one at that: French!

Bill, a resident of Indianapolis and

a graduate of Manual High School,

needed a four-hour elective at ICC.

“I was interested in doing indepen-

dent study with the school’s com-

puter,” he explained, “but didn’t

know exactly what subject to work

on. I considered composing music

or doing something with ithe stock

market, but I finally settled on get-

ting the computer to speak French.”

Enlisting the aid of Mr. Floyd Sat-

terlee, assistant professor of French,

Bill devised a method to instruct the

computer in the “language of ro-

mance.”

“I first had to set up a vocabulary

for the computer, which I named

Freng (French-English). I took a

computer card and divided it into

three sections. The first section con-

tains the English words I use; the

second section has the French equiv-

alent to the English words; and the

third part has a number code to

identify characteristics of the words

(Le., part of speech, feminine or

masculine gender, etc ) .

“I now have up to 150 words that

Freng can use in making up sen-

tences, but I could go als high as 7,000

words. The most difficult thing is

getting the placement of adjectives

and verbs, since these are different

in the two languages. The computer

will conjugate the verbs in present,

past and reflective tenses.”

In stating that the computer has

learned nearly as much as a student

who has taken one year of French,

Bill added, “In fact, I am considering

petitioning the Academic Dean to see

if the computer can get college credit

for four hours of French, but, of

course, I would give the final.”

Bill has always been a very busy

person. He carried the Indianapolis

News for three years, was a Star

carrier for four, and won a Star

scholarship when he came to college.

“Prof” Wilson during French lesson

While at Manual, he was a member

of the National Honor Society, the

All-State Orchestra, and (Hoosier Boys

State.

At ICC Bill plays trombone in the

band and the orchestra, has been on

the Dean’s List three times, and is a

member of Sigma Zeta, an honorary

scholastic fraternity. During the past

four summers he has worked for the

Indiana State Fair Board, and also

at Merchants Bank in the Currency

Department for the three previous

summers. More recently, Bill has

been involved in the Young World

Development and the New Voters

for Lugar.

When asked if he had any “dis-

cipline” problems with the computer,

Bill replied, “Well, Freng has cleared

some of the information storage discs

I use, and it takes me about 45 min-

utes to get them back in order; but

that is about the only problem I’ve

had with Freng.”

When asked if it had any problems

with Bill, Freng, the computer, an-

swered, “Bill est mon mieux profes-

seur!” (Translation: Bill is my best

professor! )


From the President’s Desk

By DR. GENE E. SEASE

Mrs. Mary (Moren) Wykowski ’43 recently presented me a card which she found among the per-

sonal effects of her late mother. It is an announcement of the programs available in 1905 at the

beginning of Indiana Central University. The reading of this card has caused me to do considerable

reflecting on the early days of the college as contrasted with its present program, Thinking you might

be interested in seeing the card, we are having it reproduced here.

There are some interesting facts which surround that first year. You will notice from the

announcement that there were five colleges within the university and that the schedule of classes

was not totally dissimilar from our new calendar recently adopted in light of a term beginning in Sep-

tember, another after New Year’s, and a third in the spring with’ the possibility of a summer term

beginning in June. The first year boasted a faculty of nine persons along with the president who also

served as the business manager. Tuition was $12 for the fall and winter terms, $10 for the spring

term, and $6 for the summer along with a matriculation fee of $3. Furnished rooms were available

on a sliding scale from 50 to 75 cents per week, and food costs were $2 per week. The average teacher

received slightly less than $1,000 for the year’s work and a total of 75 students enrolled.

The stated purpose of the university was “to aid in the social, cultural, and intellectual develop-

ment of the students who pass through its chambers year by year and prepare them more adequately

for the critical society into which they will graduate.” The School of Art replaced the School of

Commerce in 1910. The A.B. degree could be obtained after completing 240 quarter hours of work

and submitting a thesis to the president. A Master of Arts degree could be received thorough an addi-

tional year of study or three years of study in absentia with prior approval. On March 10, 1921,

the Board of Trustees voted to rename the institution Indiana Central College because it no longer

offered advanced degrees, but this confusion continues since the official Certificate of Charter re-

mained Indiana Central University.

A look at the early days of the college causes quick comparison to show the remarkable growth

which has occurred. The five departments are now expanded into eighteen with! new programs being

regularly considered and introduced. The faculty of nine has now grown into approximately 148 full

and part-time faculty members. The remarkable increase in student enrollment, in endowment funds,

in operational budgets, and in community involvement is all a matter of record.

Throughout all of its growth and extension into the world, the college’s basic purpose, though

variously stated, has continued to be “to prepare them more adequately for the critical society into

which they will graduate.”

Alumni News

Editor Named

A 1972 graduate of Indiana Central,

Mrs. Virginia Noble has recently joined

the staifif of the college, replacing the

former Miss Beverly Gmbett (now

Mrs. John Leibold) in the Alumni Office.

Mrs. Noble will serve as assistant

director of publications and will assist

the alumni director. Majoring in his-

tory with an English minor, “Ginny”

graduated magna cum laude and “with

distinction” last May. She was a mem-

ber of Epsilon Sigma Alpha, the senior

honorary society, SEA, and the History

Club.

A 1963 graduate of Manual High

School, Indianapolis, Ginny worked far

Eili Lilly Company before coming to

Indiana Central. She is mamied to Dr.

David Noble, an assistant professor of

English at the college. The Nobles have

two children, Julia, 8, and Andrew, 7.

We extend our heartiest welcome to

Ginny as she assumes editorship of

the Alumni News.

Bev (Gofbett) Leibold resigned in

October to wed M/Sgt. John H. Leibold

of Wasqhington, D.C. He is a flight

engineer assigned to Special Air Mis-

sions, Air Force One, at Anarews Air

Force Base in the nation’s capital.

ME. Noble

After graduating from Indiana Cen-

tral in 1966, Bev joined the college ad-

missions staff in 1967. In 1970 she

moved to the Alumni Office as assis-

tant to the director.

Bev became well-known among ICC

people everywhere as she kept alumni

informed albout their former classmattes

and cument college activities through

the Alumni News. In leaving, Beverly

expressed her thanks to all alumni and

the entire college family for making

her stay such an enjoyable palrt of her

life.

I’m sure ad1 alumni join me in ex-

pressing our thanks to Bev for a

splendid job, and best wishes in her

new life as Mrs. Leibold. J.B.

1972 Alumni Fund Drive Most Successful Ever

In July of 1971, a major change in

the annual Alumni F”und drive was

suggested by the Development Office

and approved by the members of the

Alumni Board. The suggestion was that

the Annual Fund be recorded by cal-

endar year (January to December) ra-

thw than by fiscal year (July to June).

Several reasons prompted this adion,

and, as in all major policy changes,

some confiusion resulted during the

“changeover” period.

A brief, six-month campaign was

conducted between July and December,

1971, before we launched our ftrst full

calendar-year campaign during 1972.

%at first calendar-year campaign has

been completed, and we now proudly

announce the results.

Previously, the record for alumni con-

tributions toward operational expenses

of the college, including Roll Call, Fel-

lows and President’s CJluh, and general

conbributions, was set during (the fiscal

year 1970-71 when alumni gave $45,145.

In 1972, alumni of Indiana Central

showed their faith in tvhe college by con-

tributing $57,583 to operational expenses,

over $12,000 more than the previous

best. Gifts from $1 to $1,000 were grate-

fully received. Even more significantly,

the numlber of donors climlbed from

1,108 in 1970-71 to nearly 1,600 this year

-a startling inorease.

In this day of fiscal crisis for private

universities across the nation, it is ex-

tremely satisfying to find Indiana Cen-

tral allumni everywhere demonstrating

loyalty fto their alma mater through

everincreasing financial support.

Through continued and improved qual-

ity education, Indiana Central will re-

turn to her alumni the appreciation felt

for this genuine expression of support.

Eshleman Continues

Philanthropy To ICC

MI-. Robert Ghleman ’29 has recent-

ly made the fourth in a series of de-

ferred gifts to his alma mater. His most

recent contribution of $4,000 to the

college’s pooled income fund raises his

total giving to Indiana Central to more

than $20,000 over the last five years.

Listed in Who’s Who in the Midwest

and the Biographical Directory of Li-

brarians, Mlr. Eshleman ‘recently re-

tired as Head Librarian of the Frank-

lin, Ohio Public Library, a post he has

held for over sixteen years. When asked

about the reason for his generous and

steady support of the college, Mr. Esh-

leman replied, “The tremendous

changes which have taken place at

Indiana ICentral in contlrast to 1929 are

remarkable. It seems as though every-

thing I see, read, and hear about the

college is additional evidence of its

advancing program.. I sbnmgly believ’e

that my gifts to the college represent

an investment in its dynamic future.”

Following his graduation from Ind-

iana Central in 1929, Mr. [Eshleman

studied at Bonebrake Theological Semi-

natry, was managing director of Asso-

ciated Players in New York City, a

storytelling coach in Dayton, Ohio, and

a teacher at Arcanum. He has keen a

church organist for many years.

News Media Seminar Planned

In honor of the Reflector‘s 50th anni-

versary year, Indiana Cenltral; Sigma

Delta Chi, an honorary journalistic fra-

ternity; and the Indiana Collegiate

Press Association are co-sponsloring a

news media seminar on the ICC eam-

pus March 51, 1973. Invitations have

been extended to the pint and ebctron-

ics media from Indiana, as well as drom

the Chicago, Detroit, Louisville, and

Cincinnati areas.

The one-day seminar, still being

planned, will include several presenta-

tions and a panel discussion about ad-

vocacy reparting, photo journalism, and

the role of government in protecting

and regulating the media.

Final arrangements are pending.

in substance and stature to

a nearly barren art form-the herican

opera.

Oomposed in 1945, The Medium presents

the tragic story of a woman

caught between two worlds, one red,

one supernatural. According to its creator,

the play is one of ideas, one which

considers the “multiple texture of reality,”

yet masterfully communicates a

Sense of horror as the tale unfolds.

Appearing in (the opera, which is being

directed by Miriam Ramaker, Music

Department, will be Marcia Yost, Sue

Crawford, Linda Howe, Terry Chattin,

Tim Wilbur, and Taylor Martin. Bruce

Haddix is assisting the dimtor; Adele

Central presented the prize-winning musical

comedy 1776, which premiered

February 9 in Ransburg Auditorium,

and continued the nights of February

10, 15, 16, and 17. ICC was the first to

produce this muscial in Indianapolis.

Featured in the cast, which was comprised

of both students and faculty

members, were Mr. James Ream,

part-time instructor of stagecraft and

and Mr. Richard Wright, senior music

major, as Benjamin Franklin. Others

conducted the orchestra for the production.

In conjunction with 1776, a oneday

conference convened on Saturday, February

17, at ICC. This activity, cosponsored

by the History Department

and the Center for Continuing Education,

was designed for secondary and

junior high social studies teachers,

faculty members, students, and others

interested in the Revolutionary period.

At the conference a number of papers

interpreting many facets of the Revolution

were presented and discussed in

concurrent sessions throughout the day.

Interpretations offered and ideas generated

teachings and studies of those who

participated.

Miss Marcus

A rare and distinctive opportunity

will become available to ICC students,

faculty members, and friends, as well

as members of the music community

in Indiana and the surrounding states.

Adele Marcus, distinguished concert

pianist, teacher, lecturer, and leading

exponent in the world of music, will

brmg her talents to the ICC campus

March 5, 6, and 7, 1973, in a series of

master sessions.

Mrs. Dorothy Munger, ICC music

faculty member and pianist for the

Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, ex-

plained that a master session is one in

which “a professional, artistic person

is invited to work with teachers and

students to enlighten and encourage

them in their professions.” Through

a master session, teaching problems

are presented and instruction is given

in the “development of technique, tone,

and attitude.”

Alumni Coaches

Meet In Tourney

An unusual homecoming occurred re-

cently in the Howard County (Ind.)

varsity.reserve Ibasketball tournament.

The four schools participating were

Eastern High School, Western High

School, (Northwestern High School, and

Taylor High School.

In bhe championship game of the

reserve tourney, the teams of two Indi-

ana Central graduates, Emmett Herr

’62, coach at Eastem, and Dan Work-

man ’65 of Western were pitted against

each other. Herr’s murtmen came out

on top by a 40-33 score.

The championship game of the va’r-

sity tourney found coaches Steve David

’61 of Northwestern and Doug Patter-

son ’67 of Eastern on opposite benches.

Patterson’s squad persevered for a

53-43 win to bring both championships

back to Eastem.

Runners-up Wmkman and David went

home at least with the satisfaction

that they bowed out to teams coached

‘by former schoolmates at ICC. Taylor

had no Central1 personnel on the coach-

ing bench, and they lost both games.

The following excerpt is from a letter

which makes reference to the Stines‘

Peace Core in Kenya five years

ago:

. . . Life has Jxcome too wttled for

us now that we’ve become a typical

suburban family. Mike is planning his

own “scientific apparatus repair” ibusi-

ness, to be incorporated in January.

I began an independent study of for-

aging foods last summer. The imme-

diate result was banquets of cat tails

(vegetable). By next summer we should

be a’ble to supply most of our green

vegetables from the wilds around our

summer home. Mike and I are both

getting itchy feet-for traveling. . . .

Letters To The

Sue ’65 and Mike Stine ’63

Anyone interested in a recipe for

cat tails?

Another letter excerpt from a 1928

classmate (her husband, Leolin Long,

is an ICC grad of 1927):

. . . Leolin and I spent a month in

Europe this ‘past fall and enjoyed re-

unions with many friends of other coun-

tries who were with us in Holland when

beolin had an appointment with NATO

in 1960-1962.

A Letter Received From a 1932 Classmate:

Our itinerary took us first to Lon-

don, then to the English countryside

and cities, seeing Anthony and Cleo-

patra at the Shakespeare Theatre in

Stratford-on-Avon.

We especially enjoyed beautiful Nodh

Walles with its magnificent castles. We

were honored at a medieval banquet

for 135 people at Ruthin Castle, when

we were selected to preside as “Bamn

and Baroness” in the banqueting hall

of the beautiful castle. This wa5 a de-

lightful evening with Welsh harp music

and folk music, sung by beautiful

“Welsh wenches” in native costumes.

We toured other countries on the con-

tinent iby rental car seeing our favorite

places and many friends in Paris, Swist-

zerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Ger-

many, Belgium and Holland.

We found September and October to

be ideal months far travel, as we had

perfect weather for 29 days. We have

never seen more abundant and beauti-

ful rose gardens in full1 bloom as in

England and Nonth Wales in the

fall! . . .

Sincerely,

Beulah Mae Long ‘28

Of the many freshmen students who “came from the north, came from the

south, cma from the east and west,” to Indiana Central College in the fall of 1930,

five girls have kept in contact with one another through the 42 years.

They tare Helen Scholer Fisher of Portland, Ind.; Helen Scholl Franks of Dixon,

Ill.; Louise Leland Voreis of Argos, Ind., Kathryn “Kay” Haehl Ellison of Shelby-

ville, Ind.; and Winifred Chambers Curts d Brook, Ind.

All of the five girls graduated from the normal course and became elementary

teachers. All girls married their home-town boy-friends, became mothers ‘and are

now grandmothers.

Among the five girls are a total of 18 children, twelve grandchildren, and 93

years of teaching school.

On Sunday, September 24, all girls with their husbands met at the home of

Winifred and Charles Curts at Rrook, for their third get-together since graduation

from ICC. There was much reminiscing, laughing, and showing of pi&ures-

especially of grandchildren. There was never more noise, even in a classroom!

We plan to meet next year and would love to hear from former classmates

we knew.

‘‘Of all the schools in all the lands, we love our own the best. . . .”

THE ODD COUPLE

According to Mr. Fisher, assistant pro-

fessor of biology, the two American

holly trees, planted on the lawn of

Zerfas Wing as part of the Fishers'

landscaping gift to the college, are

quite "different." The "female" holly,

valued at $500, is the true beauty, the

one that bears the colorful, red berries,

while the "male" holly is valued only

at $25. When fully grown, he will be

worth about half as much as the fe-

male. Of course, the little guy is neces-

sary to have around for insect pol-

imtion in the spring; otherwise, the

fcmale wuld be "unfruitful." Quite

commonly, the male is hidden in an

obscure location off to the side of its

counterpart. There surely must be a

message here somewhere for women's

lib! Visitors to the campus may want

to stop by and see the beautiful holly

tree-and her friend.

An Invitation

Alumni of Indiana Central are invited

to return to the campus this summer

and enroll in summer session classes.

The new Indiana Central Plan, which

now permits two seven-week summer

sessions instead of one eight-week ses-

sion, enables the alumnus to complete

(in a much shorter period of time) a

program leading to one of tihr ee

degrees; an associate, a baccalaureate,

or a Master of Arts.

Beginning April 30 and ending August

17, alumni will have a number of op-

portunities to enroll in a variety of

classes: art courses for one and two

weeks, science courses for four, five

and seven weeks, liberal arts and edu-

cation courses for seven weeks.

Summer Session I runs from April

30 to June 14, and Summer Session I1

runs from June 18 to August 3.

AMACO, an art workshop held in con-

junction with the American Art and

Clay Company, runs from June 18 to

August 17. An alumnus may enroll in

one or 330th sessions and earn up to

seven hours in each session. More

than 50 separate offerings in two divi-

sions and I4 academic departments

will be availiable.

of the community to its adult evening

program in which 12% undergraduak

students participated this past fdl. Of

this figure, 1150 students enyolled for

credit, and 74 audited courses.

The evening students ranged in age

from 17 to 71, with an average age

of 29.9 years. Of the total student body,

57 percent were men, and 42 percenlt

were women. Two-thirds of the students

were married.

A little more than one-thtrd of those

classified as juniors and seniors have

as their objectives B.S. degrees in (busi-

mitting shorter sessions with more

enrollment opportunities , is pr wing

extremely popular. Evening Division

enrollments have set a spring high for

the 1970’s, with 125 more students

participating than last spring.

Two programs in particular contri-

buted to the increase in enrollments.

The Helene Fumld Health Trust of

Trenton, New Jersey, has awarded

Indiana Central College a grant of $25,-

OOO to be used in its expanding pro-

gram in nursing. The announcement

of the gift was made early in January

by Dr. Gene E. Ssase.

In announcing the gift, President

Sease indicated that the Fuld grant

woluld be used to provide an audio-

tutoriad laboratory in the college’s

new nursing education facility. The

new $1,250,000 Zerfas Wing, which has

been added to Lilly Hall, was used for

the first time January 8, the beginning

of the new semester. A formal opening

and dedication of the building is being

planned for early April.

The Helene Fuld Audio-Tutorial Lab-

oratory contains 30 individual study

units, each of which is equipped with

a small projector by which nursing

students can study various medical,

surgical, and nursing procedures. By

receipt of this gift, Indiana Central Col-

lege becomes one of a group of schools

of nursing which have been helped by

the Fuld Trust. These schools share

audio-visual films, filmstrips, and video

tapes which are distributed from a

center at Winston-Salem. Over a dozen

schools in Texas, Kansas, Norrth Da-

kota, California, and on ‘the East Coast

are now affiliated with the Fuld pro-

gmam.

The grants are made available

through the Marine Midland Bank of

New York by a gift of the late Dr.

Leonhard Felix Fuld, in memory of his

mother, Helene Fuld. Reflecting Dr.

Fuld’s strong interest in the training

and preparation of bedside nurses, such

grants must be used exclusively for the

health, education, and welfare of stu-

dent nurses.

The Fuld grant and the construction

cf the Helene Fuld Audio-Tutorial Lab-

oratory provide for the expansion of

the program already initiated at In-

diana Central using video tapes and

will serve the nearly 250 students en-

roIled in nursing. The audio-tutorial

laboratory is located on the ground

floor of the new nursing facility.


ESTATE PLANNING CORNER

The Importance of Annual Giving

By LYNN R. YOUNGBLOOD

Assistant to the President and Director of Development

Because we have just concluded the

1972 alumni-giving year, I prefer to

devote this column to a discussion of

annual giving at ICC and take leave

temporarily from estate planning, the

general subject of this column.

In another section of this issue we

have pointed with justifiable pride to

the increase in support from our alum-

ni during the last calendar year. How-

'ever, (rather than pest on our laurels

we must now "gear up" for what should

be another record year in 1973.

Having broken every existing alum-

tistics with those of other institutions in

Indiana who have alumni-giving records

of which we are enviable.

For example, Franklin College, with

a smaller alumni body, recently re-

ceived a total of $198,737 during one

giving year. Over fifty percent of the

alumni body of St. Mary's-of-the-Woods

contributed in excess of $100,000 last

year in unrestricted giving to their

alma mater. Manchester's alums do.

nated over $160,000 to the annual fund

recently while 39% of Marian College's

grads participated in their alumni-

giving program. Obviously, I have

referred only to schools whose alumni

funds are at a point where we would

like ours to be. Granted, there are

those institutions that would like to be

at our level of giving. But if we are to

continue to be a quality institution we

must look ahead, not behind.

In my travels and visits with alumni,

I find that there are a couple of pre-

valent myths which should be exploded

to help in our attempt to continue

annual fund increases.

1. John Q. Alumnus feels that the Col-

lege is interested only in large gifts

and that the $5, $10, and $20 gifts are

not really appreciated. It is true that

we are greatly indebted to those

alumni whose gifts are "major,"

and, from the standpoint of operating

costs, we are very dependent upon

them. However, as far as percentage

of participation is concerned, all con-

tributions from alumni count the

same. The PERCENTAGE OF PAR-

TICIPATION is what business, in-

dustry, and foundations consider sig-

nificant when considerintg Indiana

Central College for a gift.

2. Mary S. Alumna feels no obligation

to contribute to her alma mater be-

cause, "I paid all of my expenses

while I was there and the College

probably made money off me, since

I received no scholarship help." NO

INDIANA CENTRAL STUDENT HAS

EVER PAID HIS OWN WAY. Be-

cause we as a private educational

institution depend upon private sup-

port, each student's educational ex-

penses are subsidized considerably.

For example, this year the tuition

for I.C.C. students is $1,700. Without

the support of alumni, friends, par-

ents, churches, business, industry,

foundations, etc., and the income

generated from our auxiliary ser-

vice, the tuition this year would

be $2,700! Only then would the stu-

dent have paid his QW~ way.

Indiana Central should indeed be

proud of its alumni giving, proud

enough to vow that in 1973 and future

years the Alumni Fund will continue

to increase in significance.

lecture Is I.U, legend

More of a performance than a lec-

ture, a “tour de force” of the teacher’s

art, brings Dr. William R. Breneman

to the conclusion of his course in ani-

mal biology at Indiana University,

Bloomington, Indiana.

His lecture, “IFIrom

Cadillac to Kalamazoo

to You,” refined

year after year

since albout 1943,

has become a classic

on the I.U. campus.

Meticulously

timed, liberally

sprinkled with literary

references,

Borne spun - philoso- -

Dr. Breneman phy and scientific

insight, it has no

doutbt helped bring Dr. Breneman his

reputation as a distinguished teacher.

One of the academic jokes to tell a

colleague as he enters the classroom

is “Make it live.” Dr. Breneman is

not above some pretty “corny” humor,

but “making it live” is no joke as he

takes his students, about 1,200 of them,

on an imaginary trip, tracing the eons

of development of earth and its inhabi-

tants. And the proof that this is real

teaching comes in the explosion of

applause as Breneman turns to gather

up his props and colored chalk.

Cadillac, Mich., represents the dawn

of developing earth, and each inch of

the trip equals 200 years of time: down

through Goshen where “things are al-

most alive” as viruses begin to develop

from carbon chains, through Peru and

Logansport, where the road branches,

one a dead end, the other toward

specialization.

Dr. Breneman, “Breney” to many of

his students, has been a member of

the faculty at Indiana University since

1936, after he received his bachelor’s

degree from ICC in 1930, and his Ph.D.

from I.U. in 1934. He has won the

Sigma Delta Chi “Leather Medal” and

for a number of years has been the

Luther Dana Waterman Professor of

Zoology.

His final lecture this year carried a

particular poignancy. Dr. Breneman

is retiring. Asked if he would give the

“Cadillac to Kalamazoo to You” lec-

ture again, he said, “I don’t know, I

really don’t know.”

If his students have anything to say

about it, Dr. Breneman may become

the Sarah Bernhardt of biology. That

famous actress made one farewell ap

pearance after another. In Breney’s

case, it could help the cause of teaching

immeasurably. Other professors, ad-

ministrators, and even staff members,

as well as students fro8m many dis-

ciplines, swelled the chemistry audi-

torium to its capacity for his final

lecture, w h i c h “brought everything

together,” but was only a reflection of

his semester-long teaching. More than

one student came down the aisle, as

though he had been at a revival meet-

ing, to shake Dr. Breneman’s hand and

say, ““hanks for the course.” A couple

of more exuberant coeds grabbed the

professor and each gave him a big,

tearful kiss.

In the professor’s imaginary trip to

the classroom, the last ten inches equal

the time since the birth of Christ.

Acknowledging that many religions are

represented among his hundreds of

studenlts, Dr. Breneman said, ‘‘Wheth-

er we celebrate the birthday of a man

who was only a great philosopher and

teacher, or whether we believe him to

be divine, his edict to ‘Love thy

neighbor as thyself‘ is the greatest law

of all time.”

College Receives

Dr. Gene E. Sease, president of ICC,

announced in November the receipt

of $130,000 from the Estate of Frank

W. and Gertrude Anna Abke. Mr.

Abke and Rowland Spiegel were co-

founders of the Standard National

Margarine Company with plants located

on Roosevelt Avenue in Indianapolis and

in Dallas, Texas. Natives of Kansas,

the late Mr. and Mrs. Abke made their

home on North Meridian in Indianapo-

lis.

In announcing the bequest, President

Sease indicated that the funds would

be placed in the college Endowment

Fund and earnings from them used for

student aid in the name of Frank W.

and Gertrude Anna Abke. He paid

tribute to the interest which the Abkes

had in Indiana Central College and

especially in providing a college edu-

cation for deserving but financially

needy students.

Indiana Central last year provided

aid to 849 students including grants

and loans for a total amount of $737,383

administered through Indiana Central

and another $360,000 from other lend-

ing instimtutions. In addition ‘to this, 260

students were employed by the college

for campus work during the past school

year with a total employment income

of $los,OOo.

college programs at the state reforma-

tory in Pendleton, and then as con-

sultant to the principals of the youth

institution schools.

He and his wife, Ayako, have a four-

teen-year old son, James Hiroshi. They

live in Bloomington where Ayako is a

staff librarian at Indiana University.

RICE was established to do research

into the problems of comections and

correctional education in Indiana. The

principle activicty of the institute at this

time is the preparation of a city-wide

bibliography of research materials in

corrections and criminal justice and the

establishment of an information center

at ICC. An advisory board af staff

members of the college has recently

been appointed, and a variety of other

projects are expected to be under way

soon.


iCC Hosts Theatre Festival

Indiana Central hosted the Great

Lakes Regional Festival of the tifth an-

nual American College Theatre Festival

on January 4, 5, and 6. The festival was

presented by the John F. Kennedy Cen-

ter for the Performing Arts in Wash-

ington, D.C., and was sponsored by the

American Theatre Association, Ameri-

can Airlines, and the Standard Oil Com-

pany. Over two hundred colleges

t,hroughout the country compete in the

festival each yeaT. Five or six pro-

ductions from each area are chosen to

be presented at each regional festival.

One pilay from each region is then

selected to be performed at the national

festival, held each year in April at the

JFK Center in Washington, D.C., where

awards and scholarships are made.

The six sponsoring s>hoo!s and their

plays were: Purdue Univ’ersity of Fort

Wayne-Dames at Sea; Kalamazoo Col-

lege-Pantagleize; Hanover allege-A

Man’s a Man; University of Evansville

-Lysistrata; University of Detroit-The

Comedy of Errors; and Wayne State

University - The Three Musketeers.

Three of these plays were staged in

Ransburg Auditorium on the college

campus, and three were produced in the

auditorium at Emmerich Manual High

School.

Dames at Sea, A Man’s a Man and

The Comedy of Errors were recom-

mended by the judges locally to tqhe

Central1 Committee of the Theabre Fes-

tival. One of these three plays will be

chosen by the committee to be per-

formed at the national festival in Wash-

ington, D.C., in April.

Dear Friends:

More Letters

My family and I arrived here at Fairchild Air Farce Base, Washington, on

1 Oct. 72. This Strategic Air Command Base is located in the beautiful “Inland

Empire,” only about 12 miles from Spokane, home of Expo 74. Because of the

phasedawn in Vietnam, which eliminated my job at Tan Son Nhut with 1 Weather

Group, I left there after nine months to spend June, July, and August as the

Administrative Officer for the 601 Photo Squadron at Ubon, Thailand. It is the

headquarters for combat and normal mission photography-both still and movie-

throughout South East Asia. ‘While hhere, I made staff visits to the other Thailand

bases to assist our units. In spite of a busy work schedule, I took a number of

trips on off drays to see as much of the beautiful country and fine Thai people as

possible. . . .

Here at Fairchild, I am Commander of the approximately 680 “man” 92

Combat Support Group Heardquarters Squadron. The many varied duties include

administrative and disciplinary responsibilities for personnel working in such

functions as Administration, Base Operations, Chapel, Comptroller, Personnel,

Procurement, Services, Special Services, Legal Offices, and the WAF.

We have visited a number of Methodist churches in the area, including several

who were EUB before the merger and are now part of the UM church. Although

we received a fine welcome whereveT we went, we have an outstanding ohape1

program and staff on the base where we live and now attend services and ac-

tivities here most of the time.

We extend a welcome to anyone who happens to be visiting in this corner of

the US to stop >by and see us. We hope you all had a happy Christmas and wish

you the best in the coming New Year, both in personal activities and at the College.

The following is an excerpt from a

letter of Paul Edward Babbitt, a 1929

classmate:

. . . after 45 years in the pastorate

(including five yeam as student pastor,

beginning my third year at I.C.C. and

for three years at United Seminary,

Dayton, Ohio), I retired January 31,

1972. All of my full-time pastorates

were in Southern California, beginning

in 1932 to 1940 at the United Brethren

Church in Long Beach. In 11940 I trans-

ferred my ministerial standing in the

Congregational Church and served six

churches in that denomination. One of

these was in Sedona, Arizona, where

we now live.

Though I have returned to the I.C.C.

campus but abut a half dozen times

since gnaduating in 1929, ‘the College

has been in my mind and heart con-

stantly. It has abeen refreshing to read

the ALUMNI NEWS through the years

and to keep up with the progress of

the College under the leadership of

President Esch, whom I knew for sev-

eral years before his becoming presi-

dent. It has also been good to keep up

on (the activities of those in College

with me from the class of 1% to the

class of 193% I notice that one by one

we are now retiring after forty to

forty-five years of service. I have al-

ways been full of gratitude for my

training and friendships formed at

I.C.C. and would be glad to correspond

with any who were in college in those

early days. My address is P.O. Box 361,

anything about as far as news is concerned,” and

yet they are fundamentally important to inter-

national relations in operation. Smiling and twink-

ling a bit, he added that when he arrived at each

destination, “it was helpful to have an embassy

car waiting at the airport !”

Dr. Esch had never traveled before “just

for fun.” In 1958 his extensive travels involved

him in church mission work, international studies

on Christian and theological education, and special

reporting to the United Nations and the State De-

partment on the world food situation in the Far

East. Then in 1967 he was invited to participate

in an international seminar under the Institute

of Man and Science on Mediterranean affairs.

The schlools he visited were in Djokjakarta,

Singapore, Bangkok, Nairobi, and Rio de Janeiro.

Dr. Esch remarked, “These are what we would

call private schiools. They charge tuition and

are American in terms of American education;

and they are accredited by the American Accredit-

ing Association.” Each school is organized with

its own board of trustees. Containing kindergarten

through grade 12, these schools are geared to-

ward the dependents of Americans working

abroad, including government, business, and

church employees’ children, although the schools

do accept students of all nationalities.

“Anyone working abroad from his own coun-

try,” continued Dr. Esch, “who wants his chil-

dren to have an American education can pay the

tuition and send his children to one of these

schools. Nineteen different nationalities were

represented in the school in Bangkok. The Ameri-

can government puts almost no money into the

schools, but it does have a very real interest in

them, because of its concern not only for the chil-

dren of its employees but also for the future po-

tential of international relations. In the case of

nineteen nationalities in Bangkok, those people

will one day be employed internationally, be-

cause they come from families that are interna-

tionally oriented ; they are bilingual, and most of

them will become multilingual.” Governments and

businesses are going to be very interested in

these internationally educated people.

“You look ahead twenty years,” Dr. Esch

speculated, “and here’s somebody in Thailand who

wants to do business with somebody in the United

States or Europe, and he suddenly realizes, ‘I know

Jim. We went to school together!’ This potential

is tremendous.

-28-

“Some of this international cooperation is

in areas and through circumstances that you

wouldn’t believe. For instance, in Djokjakarta,

the school was started by four embassies. Each

one of these has a member on the board as part

of the structure of the organization. The four

embassies are England, Canada, the prime mover

-the United States, and Yugoslavia.”

Just float your troubles away . . .

In Bangkok Dr. Esch had some fascinating

experiences because he arrived at the time of the

Loy Kratong Festival. It was here, amid the

fireworks and the pageantry of costume, song,

and dance, that he and others in his party were

invited to follow the symbolic tradition of set-

ting adrift small decorated baskets topped with

lighted candles to float their troubles away for

the new year. Bangkok, where Dr. Esch visited

once before in 1958, has become Americanized

because of the service-related personnel now

there. In contrast, the image of America pro-

jected in Indonesia may be forty years behind

the times, for Dr. Esch recollected seeing there

a movie marquee of an American export, a 1932

thriller !

Having been to Northern Africa, Dr. Esch

related some interesting impressions of a very

different Africa south of the Sahara Desert. He

commented “My visit to Africa was limted to

Kenya and South Africa. It is interesting, but we

have a very distorted picture of this continent.

We think of it as nations, but, basically, Africa

is tribes. The national lines were not carved on

the basis of tribes; they were carved by Euro-

peans, as you know, who started down the west

coast, went up the east coast, got to fighting with

each other, and then drew arbitrary lines. So

now you have all this tribal problem.”

Two Masai warriors of the Masai Tribal Country in Kenya


Kenya, an example of a country whose major

groups are hostile to one another, has one of the

most unusual tribes, the Masai, located within its

borders. The Masai herders have lived the same

way for centuries and until recently hlave been

little affected by civilization. Dr. Esch told of one

incident in which he started to snap a picture of

two warriors beside the road and was reprimanded

by his native guide, who said, “Those people are

dangerous. I don’t want their spears through

the side of thlis car !” Supporting the guide’s com-

ment, Dr. Esch added, “And he wasn’t kidding

either!” The proper procedure, to bargain for pic-

tures, was later followed.

The Masai live on the milk and blood of their

animals, eating no vegetables, going everywhere,

and paying no attention to national boundaries.

Although a few of the Masai are becoming more

civilized, Dr. Esch remarked that it was a rela-

tively small number, compared to the total group.

Trips to the Amboseli Game Reserve in

Kenya and Kruger National Park in South Africa

afforded Dr. Esch ample opportunity to study

and photograph a number of wild animals. The

perceptive observer unfolded more amazing knowl-

edge about the unusual hunting habits of a pride

of lions, the truth behind the story that elephants

do get drunk (on the fermented juices of a kind

of vegetation), and the antics of some nosey,

thieving monkeys who were, after all, not so wild.

As with so many travelers before, the animal

world inspired and awed Dr. Esch, providing him

with a refreshing glimpse at the wonders of na-

ture.

African Elephants on thle Amboseli Game Reserve

-29-

South Africa, the richest and most advanced

section of the continent, is a country of many

contrasts and conflicts. Dr. Esch commented

that “the problems are beginning to break down

very, very slowly.” The white, the black (native

African), and the colored (anyone who is not

white or native) live in their own communities

and do not enter each other’s residential areas

without permits.

Dr. Esch maintained that while he got “all

kinds of arguments for the system,” opportunity

is still lacking for the native African, for regard-

less of training or ability, by law, a native can-

not rise above a certain level. Even though eco-

nomically and educationally the blacks are better

off in South Africa thfan in any other sub-Saharan

country, this discrepancy remains.

The seasoned traveler told of an unusual

kind of transportation appropriate for mountain

travel in Cusco and Machupicchu, Peru. A narrow-

gauge train is taken out of Cusco, a city rimmed

by mountains, “out in the middle of no place.”

Recalling the procedure for getting up the moun-

tains, Dr. Esch explained, “There are four switch-

backs; you go up a couple of miles just as steep

as this engine will pull. Then you switch back

at a lesser slope, and go up again. You do this

four times. And then you get into a high plateau

and start downward again into a gourge toward

thme headwaters of the Amazon River. Now this

is like going down the side of the Grand Canyon

in a train!

“In Machupicchu there is some of the most

unique masonry that you could ever see, even

more unique than the pyramids. This masonry is

cut like saucers, concave and convex. Every sur-

face of the stones is set in this concave-convex

relationship and has been there since the twelfth

and thirteenth, centuries. You can’t stick a knife

blade between them !”

It’s a small world, after all . . .

Though it’s an old worn-out cliche, that un-

canny theme about the world’s smallness might

apply to Dr. Esch’s trip. He recalled, “I met more

people that I know, or that knew me, or that had

mutual acquaintances, than you can believe, com-

pletely accidentally! And, of course, in the South-

ern Hemisphere I didn’t expect to meet anybody

that way.”

Waiting for a plane at Mt. Cook, Dr. Esch ran

across an active layman in the Florida Confer-

ence, who was a member of the church Dr. James


Armstrong left to come to a church in Indianapo-

lis. Dr. Armstrong is now a bishop in the United

Methodist Church. Then in Melbourne Dr. Esch

met three American ladies on a bus tour, one of

whom had several mutual acquaintances from

Duke University, and another from Los Angeles,

who turned out to be the sister of a librarian who

had been very helpful to Dr. Esch when he worked

on his doctoral dissertation. In Djokjakarta he

discovered that the superintendent of the school

there had in his early days managed the play-

ground of a Los Angeles schdool where Lynd, Jr.,

once attended. Leaving Sumatra, Dr. Esch acci-

dently ran into a couple of missionaries from Ft.

Wayne, one of whom had a niece, Donna Foy, who

graduated from ICC’s nursing school several

years ago. Then in Bangkok, while attending lunch

with the school’s administrative staff, Dr. Esch

met a lady who had lived in Oakland, California,

and who knew very well a former deaconess in

one of Dr. Esch’s early churches, Florence Bender,

also an ICC graduate.

In a Bangkok high school building, Dr. Esch

found a big poster of Indiana Central College,

along with a catalog and other materials. Upon

inquiring, he learned that Stanley and Amy Zent,

ICC graduates, who had taught there for two

years, had “really been promoters of Indiana

Last Opportunity To Order Alumni Chairs

Central!” Going down to the game reserve

in Africa, Dr. Esch met two women in a small

car, one of whom regularly attended United

Church of Christ conferences on the campus, and

who knew Glenn Catlin, another graduate of the

college. These coincidental meetings were just

a few that Dr. Esch related. He exclaimed, “A

person could write a book about this kind of

thing. It started in New Zealand, and it just

kept going !”

It ended in reflection ...

Despite the pace of his trip, Dr. Eschk ad-

mitted that he had come home rested, having

thoroughly enjoyed all of his experiences, and

having appreciated the opportunity given to him

by the “kids”-his many student friends-who

provided the money for his airplane ticket. His

final comment displayed humor: “I’ve said a num-

ber of times that I could have understood a ticket

halfway around the world, perhaps, but not all the

way !”

If miles could measure love and respect and

appreciation, then the Indiana Central alumni

sincerely hope that this fine educator and very

special gentleman has accumulated all the love

and respect and appreciation that one heart can

bear !

Trophy

Travels North

Coach Bill Bless’ Greyhound gridders

closed out the 1972 football season No-

vembeir 18 with a heartbreaking 8-7

loss to Butler’s Bulldogs in the annual

‘Indy Top Dog” clash. With the victory,

the Bulldogs captured an Indiana Col-

egiate Conference Co-championship and

took the Top Dog Trophy away from

the ’Hounds, at least until next yea‘r.

Sparked by a rock-ribbed defense and

a 32year touchdown pass Brom the

Indiana Collegiate Conference’s leading

passer, freshman Rod Pawlik, to split

end Gary Hall, the ’Hounds led 7-0 in

the fourth quarter. However, Billy

Lynch, Butler quarterback, hooked up

with his sensational flanker Tom Red-

mond for a touchdown pass in the last

six minutes of the contest. Lynch loBted

a high bomb and Redmond made a

stunning headlong, twisting catch, his

fourteenth reception of the day, setting

a conference record. A two-point con-

version pass from Lynch to Bob Grenda

spelled doom for Central.

The final season loss made ICC’s

record 4-6, but a 2-3 record in the con-

ference was good enough for a #third-

place tie. Considering the tough Con-

ference, the ’Hounds’ record was more

than encouraging.

Coach Bless loses only nine seniors

from this year’s squad, which closed

the season with four wins in their last

six games. Missing next year will be

Paul Austin, Ted Crisman, Russ Flueck-

iger, Steve Hurst, Joe Koenig, Joe

Mom, Nick Romano, Doug Semenick,

and Mark Wheeler.

Thirty4hree lettermen will report

next fall for practice, including con-

fe’rence passing leader and the ’Hound’s

MVP Pawlick; all-conference selections:

linebacker, Oscar Gardner; Bill Coffee,

offensive guard; and Rick Sidebottom,

fullback. Leading receivers Gary Hall,

Mike Eads and Mickey Sisk also return,

as does leading ICC rusher Steve Mont-

gomwy.

Two Indiana Central studenmt-ath81etes

have been selected to the 1972 NCAA

College Division Academic All-Ameri-

can Team.

Mike Eads, a junior from Franklin,

Ind., was a first-team selection as an

offensive end. Rick Sidebattom, also a

junior from Southport, Ind., received

recogniltion as a runningback on the

second-team offensive.

Chosen by sports writers and coaches

from across the nation, individuals hon-

ored must have demonstrated excel-

lence not only on the football field but

also in the classroom.

Eads, a biology major studying pre-

medicine, has compiled a B+ average

after five semesters at Indiana Central.

A starter at offensive end since his

fneshman year, Mike has snared 82

passes for 1153 yards in three yea’rs of

action. He ranked fifth Ithis past season

in Indiana Collegiate Oonfe’rence pass-

receiving statistics, with 14 grabs and

159 yards in five games. Mike is the

son of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Eads of

Route 3, Fkanklin, Ind.

Sidebottom, a member of the Indiana

Collegiate Conference coaches’ all-con-

ference first team in 1972, has also been

a three-year starter for the Grey-

hounds. One of (the all-time leading ICC

runners, he has caried 408 times for

1565 yards, an average of 3.8 yards per

carry, during his collegiate career. Like

Eads, the 1970 Southport High School

graduate plans a career in medicine,

maintaining an A- average throughout

his fifth semester. His pxrents are Mr.

and Mlrs. Kenneth Sidebottom of South-

port, Ind.

Although both have another year’s

football eligibility remaining, Eads and

Sidebottom may forego their senior

football season $0 enter medical school.

Both young men have applied to the

Indiana University School of Medicine

and should one or both of them be ac-

cepted, Coach Bill Bless may lose two

fine football players Erom his 1973

squad.

IN Basketball Reeord Examined

The Indiana Central basketball squad of Coach Angus Nicoson began the

1971-72 hardwood season by winning seven of their first eleven contacts. Scores for

games through January 13 were:

IC 90 Huntington 79

IC 96 North Central 75

IC 63 ’I’ri-State 64

IC 79 Oakland City 72

IC 60 Franklin 69

IC 90 I.S.U. (Evansville) 62

IC 78 Anderson 70

IC 77 Elmhurst 69

IC 54 Butler 71

IC 79 North Kentucky State 73

IC 77 St. Joseph’s 79

Competing for the first time as full members of the tough Indiana Collegiate

Conference, the ’Hounds were off to a rocky start in conference action, having

lost to both Butler and St. Joseph’s.

Leading scorer for Nick’s crew was Jeffersonville’s Todd Whitten, a 6-6 senior.

Todd’s 19.0 average and .489 field goal shooting percentage were tops for ICC,

as well as his 13.7 rebounds per game.

Last season’s top shooter, 6-4 J. D. Layman of Logansport, was experiencing

shooting miseries, hitting on only 38% and 17 *points per game, compared to his

46% and 2o-poid-per-game standards of last year. Against St. Joseph’s, however,

the slender sharpshooter showed of *bm&ing his slump, converting for 33

pcints, including fantastic 12-of-13 shooting from the field in the second half alone.

Sophomore guard Daryl Warren of Linden was the ’Hounds third double-figure

scorer at 15.2 ppg.

The remainder of the schedule will give Nick’s lads little comfort. Including

St. Joseph’s game, ICIC plays eleven conference contests in the next month against

Butler, DePauw, Evansville, Wabash, and Valparaiso.

Chiu Serves As

Host-Interpreter

For Chinese Artists

During the ’recent performance tour

of the Shenyang Acrobatic Tlraupa of

The People’s Republic of China, a visit

was made to Indianapolis, one of four

US. cities included on the artists’ itin-

erary. During that visit on Dlwember

27-30, 1972, Dr. Victor Chiu, assistant

professor of Physics at Indiana Central,

participated in the unique experience

as a Chinese-American host and one of

t,he interpreters during the troupe’s

Seals And Crofts

Visit Campus

Jimmy Seals and Dash Crofts brought

their intricate and unusual harmonies

to the Indiana Central campus January

27 in an exciting musical experience for

college students and fans of all ages

from throughout the Indiana area. Their

unique musical sound, a blend of o’rien-

tal, classical, country, blues, jazz, and

rock, came from two instruments:

the guitar and the mandolin.

Both Seals and Crofts have had ver-

satile musical backgrounds, established

in the small, nearby Texas towns where

they were born. At the age of five,

Seals learned to play his father’s guitar,

and later mastered the fiddle, winning

the Texas State Fiddle Championship

at age nine. In his ea’rly teens, his

rapid musical maturity led him to the

tenor saxophone. Crofts, too, began

showing signs of tremendous musical

ability at the age of four, wh.en he be-

gan picking out tunes on a piano board

that he could barely reach. After being

schooled in classical piano, Crofts then

learned to play the drums.

Having gained experience in junior

high and high school musical groups,

the two men realized that the musical

vistas available to them were not as

vast as the Texas horizons, and they

headed to California in 1958 to join a

hand-picked musicall rock group, the

Champs, famous for the hit, “Tequila,”

which sold six million copies, one of

the biggest single hits in the sock busi-

ness.

For the next seven years Seals and

Crofts were members of a successful

rock group known as the Dawnbreak-

ers. Near the end of this association the

two men learned of the Baha’i faith, a

ieligion whose basic principle is unity,

and whose originator stated over 100

years ago that the arts and sciences

should serve to unify the East and West.

Those who practioe the Baha’i faith

believe music is a world language that

has the power to break down barriers

of racial, national, and religiolus bigo-

try among peoples. When Crofts dis-

covered the strange and beautiful

sounds of the mandolin, the “new”

music of Seals and Crofts became an

expression of their deep feelings about

their faith.

Seals and Crofts’ latest release,

“Summer Breeze,” and a previous al-

bum, “Year of Sunday,” reveal the

amazing talents of these two sensitive

“medieval minstrels.” Their well-’re-

ceived concert was indeed a refreshing

musical experience for Indiana Centrall.
