On a hot Sunday in August, the cycle began.

Students left lingering memories on the beaches and

mountains, quit their jobs as cocktail waitresses or

construction workers, packed up books they'd never

gotten around to selling back last spring, and

descended on the University.

While summer was technically over, summer weather

wasn't. Under relentless sunshine, students hiked

from Bear Down Gym ( "What do you mean I can't go in

yet? I've got my fees card! ") to McKale ("But I have

to have that class! "Try Math 20; they've still got

room there. ") to Women's P.E. ( "All I can say is, for

$225.00 I'd better get a parking place. ")

It was a time for making friends. Formally,

through Greek Rush. ( "The Panhellenic Association is

pleased to inform you that you have been bid to. . . ")

Informally, in bars. ( "Listen, why don't we go back

to my place and ... What's your name, anyway ? ")

Out -of -state students

alone in the confusion

Many out -of -state freshmen stepped down from a jet

into Arizona's hot breeze, nervous and alone. Two

days later they were amidst crowds, lines, and confusion

as they decided which classes they would dislike

least. The trauma of registration brought a few irate

parents to the aid of Arizona residents, but to the

lonely freshmen, there was only a desolate feeling.

Upperclass friends helped some lucky students, as

one upperclassman described, "I felt totally in

control." She said she managed to get on the fast -

moving lines, but she noticed that many were not as

fortunate as she.


1 -- Sitting on the mall during the first week

of school is a good way to meet people. 2 --

This sign on Miracle Mile greets new students

to Tucson. 3-- Sophos help incoming

students bring luggage from the airport to

their dorms. 4 -- Returning last year's textbooks

helps many students' financial situation.

5 -- Students who register late are often

confronted with closed classes.

21


22

1 -- Students find the classified section of the

daily papers helpful in looking for an apartment.

2 --Dorm parties provide relaxation

from the hectic pace of the first week of

school. 3 -- Hanging plants outside dorm

windows livens up the view. 4 --Due to the

limited capacity of the dorms, some students

choose to live in apartments. 5- -Jenny Hill

takes a break from unpacking in her dorm to

read a letter.


Dorms overflowed. People slept in halls, in

lobbies, waiting for new pledges to move out and

conditions to return to normal. Apartment hunting was

the usual rat -race. ("I've gotta find a roommate who

can pay the whole deposit." "I've gotta get a place

with a pool." "I need somewhere under $78 a month

with utilities paid, no lease, and a dishwasher."

"Forget it. ")

After the duplexes, dorms, houses and park

benches were distributed, classes began.

"Is this Geology la ?" "I don't think so. Try

next door." "He's crazy! 200 pages by Monday? What

does he think we are?" "I got the last copy the

bookstore had for $12.50. Why'm I so thrilled about

$12.50 ?" "Let's cut the lecture. We can pick up the

notes from somebody else." "A quiz, huh ?" "Okay, you

read the first half and I'll read the second."

Friendliness, peace

rank highly in dorms

Which dormitory at the University of Arizona is the

best according to the dorm -living students themselves?

For the women, Coronado was rated top if you're

looking for private baths, and especially if you want

peace and quiet for studying. Maricopa Hall was a close

second for friendliness and pleasant facilities,

carpeting, and no built -in furniture.

Among men, Graham -Greenlee was rated first with

friendliness and nice facilities. For location, Yavapai

Hall was number one; and for having an atmosphere

conducive to studying, Apache -Santa Cruz won.

Fall activities broke the monotony. "You going

to the game ?" "Who's it with this year, anyway ?"

"Uh ... Auburn." Crush Auburn! "31 - 19! All

right!" Go! Go! Wildcats go, Arizona, bear down!

New stadium. 57,000 people. Biggest in the state.

October. "Hey, I got a letter from Mom and

Parents' Day is next weekend. They're coming out!"

"We better get this place cleaned up." Las Vegas

Night. Cards, craps, roulette. Incredible luck

at the poker table - -- $10,250 in one hour. Play

money. "Oh, shit."

Midterms. "Already? I haven't gotten the book

yet." All-nighters. Unexpected A's. Unexpected F's

and D- slips. "Maybe if I go home for the weekend

they'll forget about it." "Don't count on it."

"Let's go bar -hopping." Relationships clustering,

breaking, re- forming, growing. Waking up with a lover

instead of alone. "I think I love you." "Huh...

what'd ya say ?" "Nothing, go back to sleep."

"A" gets the brush;

Frosh get the splash

Whitewashing "A" Mountain was a once -in -a- lifetime

experience. Several hundred unsuspecting freshmen were

stuffed into buses, cars, and trucks and were hauled up

to "A" mountain, singing a rousing chorus of "Bear Down

Arizona."

Upon their arrival, they tumbled out of the buses

and SPLASH! were promptly welcomed with a bucket of

whitewash. The whitewash dripped from their hair,

soaked their shirts, sopped their jeans, and sloshed

through their shoes. Freshmen quickly got into

action and revenge was sweet as they soaked their

attackers. It seemed everything on the mountain was

white, except the "A ". The Blue Key announced the

"A" Day queen and ceremoniously crowned her with a

pail of the ever -present white stuff.

After returning to the University, the freshmen

were grabbed, dragged, and thrown into the cool fountains

near Old Main. They finally went back to dorms and

homes, tired and sopping wet, but looking forward to

the first football game of the season that evening

against Auburn.

1 --A freshman finds herself trapped by a Sopho and his bucket of whitewash.

2 --Spur members Julie Files and Jane McLellan carry on the traditional

opening of "A -Day" activities by burning the "A" the night

before. 3 -- Avoiding whitewash splashes is a common problem for

freshmen. 4 --Old Main's fountain water is too good just to sit in after

a day's work of whitewashing.

The ASU game. Tradition thicker than Homecoming.

Smash the Sun Devils. Burn ASU. Can I use your fees

card? I gotta see this one!" Bear down, Arizona.

Bear down, red and blue. "Who cares? It's only a game."

"Yeah." "Wait till next year!"

Basketball season. Swarming into McKale. "No

way, I gotta study." "You? Come on!" Colder now.

Almost winter. "You call this cold? I'm from

Michigan." Two days of classes left. Hit the bars

one last time. "Listen, if you don't come back next

semester, I just want you to know ... it's been

great." "Thanks."

Last day of classes. First day of finals.

Packing. "If I got it all out here why can't I get it

back?" "You finished with exams? Let's go out."

Going home. Going to California, going to Mexico.

One semester down, one to go. Going early. Going

late. Gone.

1 --UA lost the WAC game against Wyoming by a score of 26 -24. 2 --The

halftime activities included the UA marching band. 3 --The UA Alumni

Band joined in with the marching band for the halftime show. 4 --

Natalie Fabric, from Phoenix, was crowned homecoming queen, and a

Fiat (5) was given away to a lucky ticket holder during the halftime

break.

Homecoming festivities

mark traditional week

As usual, football and fanfare brought

homecoming week to a close. The UA's bid

to stay alive in the WAC championship race

fell short when flanker Charles Nash was

pulled down on the Wyoming five -yard line

as the game ended. WAC champion Wyoming

finished on top by a score of 26 -24. Halftime

brought the crowning of homecoming

queen Natalie Fabric, the reunion of four

previous UA football teams, and the induction

of the first twenty members of the UA

Athletic Hall of fame.

However, the Homecoming festivities

were overshadowed by a tragedy, as the

Civil War cannon, traditionally fired to

signal UA touchdowns, exploded at the end

of the game, injuring five people. The

firing of the cannon will probably be

discontinued, according to Dean of Students

Robert S. Svob. "I don't think it should

be used again," he told the Tucson Daily

Citizen. "It was a very unfortunate thing."

One more semester. "You can't call this spring

semester. It's the middle of winter." "Hey, the

line's moving." ROW -THN. HEA -LAV. Registration

lurching along.

"How was your vacation ?" "Fine." "Great." "I

thought you were transferring somewhere else." "Yeah

... I don't know, I figured I may as well stick

around another semester." "What's a 3 -unit class

with not much reading at 10:00 MWF ?" "I already took

that. What else is good?"

Syllabus, reading list. "Can 1 use your book ?"

"200 pages by Friday? He's crazy!" New library.

"It's not the same, somehow. I used to leave the old

library late at night and walk home under the trees

... with all those books . "

More basketball. Victory. Bear down. Beat New

Mexico. Warmer weather. Jack -in- the -Box at 3am.

"I studied for two hours. I need a taco."

TG's. Beer. Dinner out. What are you doing

Friday? More beer. Frisbee on the mall, wet grass at

midnight. "Sure is quiet ... here, catch!"

Gallagher movies. "No, honest, I gotta study."

Midterms. "Oh, shit." "Can 1 use your book again ?"

"When are you moving out, anyway ?" Relationships

settling, spinning off again. "1 love you." "1 know."

Spring sports -- baseball, track, swimming, kites.

"Guess whàt I got at Circle K ?" "A kite? You're

kidding!" "Listen, it's March." "So ?"

Spring break. "I got a letter from my girl in

Chicago; she's coming out." "We better get this place

cleaned up." Mazatlan. Vail. A whole week off.

Settle back into school. Not much longer now.

Selections. Elections. Honoraries. Offices. "Vote?

Me ?" Spring Fling. Booths, prizes, tickets, rides.

"You've never been on a Ferris wheel?" Stars, bright

lights below. "I love you." "Let's do it again!"

Spring Fling turns

campus to carnival

Students, faculty, alumni, families, children

and dogs could all find something to enjoy at the

UA's annual carnival, Spring Fling. For the dogs,

it meant hot dog buns and cotton candy dropped on

the ground. For the people, it meant more.

An entire carnival set, complete with rides,

games and tickets was hauled onto the campus. The

daring could take their courage in their hands and

their hearts in their mouths on rides guaranteed to

make the hardiest blanch. Those with limited

experience at this sort of thing settled for cars

that rode within the safe confines of a rubber

arena and kept their eyes open.

Various campus organizations set up booths

where you could try your hand at anything from

pitching pennies to throwing darts at balloons.

The food encompassed all areas of the globe -

Italian pizza, Indian bread, Russian pastries,

and of course, the good old American hot dog!

1 -- Part -time; full -time, temporary and permanent

jobs, as well as the names of companies

interviewing for employees, were

all on record at the Alumni Building's Placement

Office. 2 --The Travel Center arranged

charter flights to Chicago and New York,

and for those with money, cruises to Hawaii

or tours to Germany -and dozens of other

summer vacations. 3 --As finals came to an

end, the Student Union lounges emptied.

4 -- Though it's an annual event, the graduation

ceremony was a proud experience for

many students.


Graduation marks

end of cycle

Winding down toward summer. Final projects. "I

gotta get a job." Easter, no classes. "!'m going to

look for a job." "I know a place that's hiring." "I

can always go to summer school." "I gotta get a job!"

"What are you doing this summer ?" Research in

San Diego. Hiking in the Catalinas. Waitress in

Bisbee. Salesman in Nashville. "Forget it, let's go

out." "I have to study for finals." "Oh, shut up!"

Exams again. End -of- the -year dinners. Class

parties. Take the final early and get out. Stay for

graduation. "I never thought I'd graduate!" "I

never thought you would either."

Family coming out. "I'm going to Europe." "I'm

going to Ajo." Plane reservations. Take the books

home, sell 'em back in the fall. Stuff it in the

trunk. Somebody check the room, have we got it all?'

That's it. You coming back? Let's go out. I love

you. I gotta study. Bear down Arizona. It'll all

happen again.

STUDENT UNION


The Student Union forms a center of activity for students. It houses offices and

lounge areas 1 and 2 -- inside the familiar watch -tower building with the

modernistic sculpture in front 3 and 4 --The Union celebrated its 25th Anniversary

with a huge cake covered with roses 5.

Union holds many

student services

The Student Union has been called the living

room of the University. Its services include the

preparation and serving of three meals a day, a

check- cashing office, places to relax, meeting rooms,

and a clock that can be seen from all over campus.

A post office, bookstore, theater, sidewalk

delicatessen, ballrooms and exhibit hall are also

located in the Union.

In November, the building celebrated its 25th

anniversary with a party giving free cake and ice

cream to everyone who walked in. Other high points

of the week -long celebration were free movies in

the Cellar and hot dogs, Cokes and coffee sold at

their 1941 prices.

Room provides entertainment between classes with pinball machines

the basement Games Room.


Activities, shows

take place in S.U.

In addition to the regular services offered by

the Student Union, there are activities taking place

in nearly every corner.

The Games Room holds pool and ping -pong tables,

foosball, air hockey and pinball machines which can

be used for a nominal fee. For those in search of

something a little more cultural, the Cellar is the

site of frequent drama productions by the O'Haspe

Theatre. Some of their presentations included "I'm

Herbert!" (a brown -bag theatre to which students

could bring their lunch), "You Know I Can't Hear You

When The Water's Running," and "Seven Keys to

Baldpate."

Upstairs in the Exhibition Hall, shows ranging

from medical photographs to a display of old -time

furniture and utensils are put up about every month.

Students can browse through the pictures or the

exhibits all during the day. Other exhibits, such

as a show of quilts or the works of one artist, are

hung in the Union Club Lounge on the third floor, or

in the Arizona Lounge on the second floor.

ON THE ALL

'1011.1.


SUAB committees

add interest to lunch

Outside the Student Union was as active as the

inside. People who ate their lunch on the mall were

confronted with concerts, food booths, skateboard rallies,

and blacksmiths in addition to the customary Frisbees.

Most of the mall activities were sponsored by the

new SUAB Mall Events committee. During Skateboard Day,

students showed off marvelous skills and executed feats

of daring such as barrel -jumping and leaping into the

air on a hurling skateboard. The less- accomplished

performers settled for zooming around the mall and

waiting for a swell of applause.

During the first week of school the SUAB Entertainment

committee presented a bluegrass concert which drew

about 2000 people and showed new students what to expect

in Tucson music. Later, Wilson and Fairchild blasted

the lethargic lunch bunch with their rowdy folk songs,

and other bands offered more bluegrass, rock, and discostyle

music.

The sounds weren't limited to rock --in October a

gospel ensemble from ASU performed their "soul" ballads,

and at Christmas time a madrigal group rendered Old

English carols. A lone guitar or banjo player still

popped, up in front of the Student Union entrance with

a coin -filled hat placed strategically nearby.

Local craftsmen displayed their goods twice a month

on Speaker's Corner, and students stocked up on handmade

jewelry, leather goods, plants, pots, and macrame.

At the International Food Booth, they stocked up on

foods from around the world. It was definitely an

improvement on the standard brown -bag sandwich.

SUAB sponsors events ranging, from crafts

fairs to concerts to demonstrations for the

entertainment of the students.

Showing off talent in 1- -pool, 2-- gambling,

and 3 -- eating is possible at the annual SUABin-

6.

LAS VEGAS NIGHT

SLJABINTHEDARK


Union hosts casino,

eating contest, and

all -night entertainment

From evening to sunrise, the Student Union was a

gambling casino, a plant market, a pancake restaurant,

and other centers of interest. It was at SUAB- in -the-

Dark, the annual all -night marathon of events sponsored

in the Student Union.

The Games Room was open for competition in pool

and football, while the Palace of Sweets hosted a banana -

eating contest. Local craftsmen displayed candies,

jewelry, and glassware in the halls.

Las Vegas Night, the traditional evening when

even those under 21 could stake their evening's winnings

on the turn of a card, offered a variety of games - poker,

craps, roulette, and blackjack. For entertainment a

group dressed up cowboy -style square- danced to country -

western music on stage. At midnight, though, the vast

fortunes earned by lucky gamblers were turned into paper

money and only the highest winners in each game went

home with prizes.

Cheech & Chong


Old, new comedy

entertain crowds

The Grammy award -winning team Cheech and Chong

and the celebrated comic Bob Hope played to appreciative

crowds in the fall.

Cheech and Chong, with their explosive talent for

raunchiness, appeared at the UA Main Auditorium September

9. Their act included Sister Mary Elephant and their

famous hitchhiking routine. Appearing with them was

the Phoenix quintet, It's Only Music.

On September 16th, Bob Hope brought his witty

act to the McKale Memorial Center. The crowd enjoyed

his traditional stand -up comedy, as he joked about

everything from politics to sex. Along with Hope was the

Tucson -based musical group Up With People, who spend every

summer here preparing their road show. Bob Hope

S CONCERTS


Eagles

Fans rock and roll

with familiar tunes

On October 16, 1976 they arrived. They flew into Tucson

quickly and silently, hidden by the clouds. They

hovered over the city for a few hours and then lit in

the far end of McKale Center to present one of the most

exciting concerts Tucson has heard yet. The Eagles,

with special guest star John David Souther, were

brought to Tucson by ASUA Productions in association

with KTKT. Adorned in Levi's, they stomped, flapped,

and sang in a style that was all Eagles. The McKale

Center was filled to the rafters as John David

Souther and the Eagles took the audiences breath

with each new song, and satisfied its hunger with

their well known hits. People were rocking and rolling,

laughing and sighing like never before, as the

Eagles lifted them off the ground and then set them

gently down with two encores. The audience left

McKale Center late that evening, humming and singing

familiar tunes, unaware of five figures who silently

took flight and faded away in the darkness.

47


48

Mixtures of old surroundings with the new

brings out a contrasting beauty to Tucson,

ranging from 4 --the desert outside the city

limits and 1 --old west settings at Traildust

Town on the northeast side, to 3 --old Spanish

and 4 -- 5 -- modern architecture in the downtown

vicinity.


City reflects cu ural, natural aspects

Outside the University campus, many out -of -town

students found time to explore Tucson's surroundings.

Downtown Tucson was the best place to start since it

was closest. The Community Center provided activities

such as concerts, indoor sports, and art exhibits

after government and business hours.

West of the city was Pima Community College;

Old Tucson, famous movie location; and the Arizona -

Sonora Desert Museum, displaying live animals and

plants in their natural habitat. In a southerly

direction was Kennedy Park with a lake for fishing

fanatics; the town of South Tucson; and the Papago

Indian Reservation bordering the city limits, also

the location of the San Xavier Del Bac Mission.

Tucson's south and central areas include Tucson

Daily Citizen and Arizona Daily Star, Tucson International

Airport, Southern Pacific Railroad and

Amtrak Railroad.

Davis -Monthan Air Force Base, Randolph Municipal

Park and the El Con and Park Mall shopping centers

were found on the east side. Sabino Canyon and Mt.

Lemmon in the Catalina Mountains provided camping,

hiking, and picnicking for outdoor lovers, while

Sahuaro National Monument off the Rincon Mountains

was set aside as a wildlife preserve and a place for

amateur and experienced horseback riders.

RESTAURANTS

Nightclubs such as 1 --and 2- -Bobby McGee's, 3 --the Pawnbroker,

and 4 --the Solarium have created their own atmospheres

for different types of people.


Restaurants offer variety in mood and cuisine

In every major university there exists a group of

individuals that represent the highest echelon of college

students. Their academic curriculum is usually rigorous,

and in true elitest fashion they must relax in an equally

superior way. Along these lines Tucson has much to offer

the socially inclined college man or woman.

Far to the east of the campus lies a great highway

known as Tanque Verde Road. It is along this way that

such establishments as Bobby McGee's, the Solarium, and

the Pawnbroker conduct their business. McGee's offers

one of the best atmospheres in town. The sophisticated

nightclub features a continental menu, a selection of

wines that would impress a connoisseur, and baroque

hybrid decor which sprouts a magnificent collection of

antiques. McGee's is definitely not for the penny pincher,

but rather for the person seeking excellence in food,

drink, and environment. Reservations? Two days in

advance!

Literally next door to McGee's is the Solarium, which

resembles a greenhouse for a variety of plant life. Built

on three levels, the lowest one holds a seafood restaurant.

Rock floors, wooden tables, and wicker chairs give the

entire eatery a natural outdoor setting. Up above, in

the cocktail area, the larger of the hanging growths

can be viewed in full. One large glass wall that extends

the length of the level integrates the outside with the

inside by masking out Tanque Verde Road and leaving only

the natural desert wildlife in view. Finally, the third

summit is out of doors and includes a few tables and

chairs. In the evenings it is the best place to view

the skyline of the Old Pueblo.

Farther down the road, you can tie your horse up

outside the Pawnbroker and mosey on into one of the

fanciest country -rock restaurants this side of the

Mississippi. The modern day mountain man will feel right

at home in the barroom setting. With the atmosphere set

by knobby chairs and tables, Bob Meighan usually provides

the entertainment. Add that to the pleasure in drink and

you'll see why the door is always jammed and the dance

floor filled at the Pawnbroker.

Q m


Bars near campus count on student revenue

Bars provide a relaxing atmosphere where

students can compete in games of football

and pool or just sit and talk.

Although permission to sell alchoholic beverages on

campus has been continually turned down by the Board of

Regents, students refuse to let this cramp their style.

Gentle Ben's, the East Inn, Sugar Mt. Lodge, the

Stumble Inn, and After the Gold Rush are five bars that

depend heavily on UA students for business.

Gentle Ben's is the closest to campus. It has an

outdoor terrace with plenty of room to sit down. Many

students go here between classes or after their classes

have ended. "The informal atmosphere and the fact that

it's within walking distance of the UA is why I go

there," said sophomore Sherry Hogan.

The East Inn and Sugar Mt. Lodge are both set up in

a relaxed atmosphere with tables and chairs. The only

difference is that Sugar Mt. is a disco with a dance floor

while the East Inn depends on a juke box for music. "I

like going to Sugar Mt. because almost all of the people

are students and friendly," said sophomore Melissa

Schmuck. Tom Dunklee, a junior, said that he goes to

the East Inn because "it's the type of place you go and

sit down, talk without having to shout above the music,

and quietly get drunk."

The Stumble Inn is the most popular country rock bar

among students. They have a dance floor and live music.

Junior Dave Evans commented, "The Stumble Inn is the best

place to get rowdy and country swing."

After the Gold Rush is the most luxurious of the

five bars. It has a disco with a D.J. and the largest

dance floor in town. This bar presents more of a nightclub

atmosphere in contrast to the others. Mike Finn, a

bouncer at the Gold Rush and a sophomore at the UA,

commented, "I think we present the best setup for couples

or just for meeting other people."

Even with the tight budget most students have, bars

continue to be a sought -after commodity. Until the Board

of Regents approves the sale of alcohol, students will

have to continue sinking their revenue into off -campus bars.

53


54

COFFEEHOUSES

Students often escape to the relative serenity of coffeehouses such as 1 -and

2 --the Basement Cafe, 3 --the Cup, and 4 --and 5 --the Unicorn.


I

Cafes attract teetotalers

More students asked their dates out for tea this

year than ever before.

Sitting and listening to performances and different

types of music with no cover charge was an added

attraction to those who prefer drinking tea to liquor.

The Basement Cafe at 502 N. Fremont Ave., featured

a varied schedule of musicians. Collections were taken

for their pay, and the waitresses worked on a volunteer

basis. Ten types of tea were offered along with meals

at reasonable prices.

Simple gingham tablecloths magnified the comfortable

charm of the Cup, at 715 N. Park Ave. It also featured

teas and performances on Friday nights. The

workers were volunteers.

Hard to find in spite of the eating patio and

rustic sculpture in front of the building, the Unicorn

at Sixth Ave. and Mable St. served a selection of

teas, drinks, and meals in an informal, old- fashioned

atmosphere.

In two theaters in town the lights dimmed and the

crowds fell silent. The movies began with music, and

soon one audience was gripping its seats in horror,

while the other was roaring with laughter. The Omen,

playing at the El Dorado, was a devilish tale of a

political family which was raising the son of Satan.

Silent Movie was a new Mel Brooks farce during which

only one word was heard.

These shows are just two examples of the fine films

available to the college movie fan. Hundreds of movies

can be seen each year in the many theaters of Tucson.

Our own Gallagher Theater has the widest selection,

offering a new show every day or two. The New Loft

also has a fine selection of movies and is just a hop,

skip and a jump away from campus. Other theaters in

Tucson that are favorites of UA students include the

Catalina, the Showcase Cinema and the El Dorado.

Of course, there are many fine drive-ins located

all over town which offer entertainment from

the comfort of your own car, and they have very

enjoyable movies, also!

If there isn't a newspaper handy, students can find a good movie by

looking for the marquees at 1--and 4--Showcase, 2--and s''cino'

world, or at 3--Midway Drive-In.

CHEAP DATES


Imagination saves money on dates

1- -The "Hot Hero Sandwich" Sign and the Eegees lemons (PICTURE 5) signify

places where students can get good food cheap. 2-- Gocarting provides

active entertainment for the student on a tight budget. 3 --For those who

can't even afford minature golf, Gooney Golf has plenty of unusual sculptures

to look at.

The going rate per couple for dinner at a restaurant

followed by an evening show averages $25.00. This amount

of money is the biggest reason students with their tight

budgets are finding other things to do during dates.

Pizza parlors are probably the favorite eating places

around campus. Their close proximity gives students easy

access to them. "Walking to and eating at New York City

Pizza Parlor is always a great time," said junior Mike

Belcher. "The atmosphere is always good because the place

is filled mostly with students... and the price is right."

For activity, minature golf attracts many students.

The moderate Arizona temperature helps to make this a

pleasant, relaxing sport. Freshman Chauncey Hill said,

"Minature golfing is a super place for a date because

it's so easy both you and your date can do it with equal

ease."

Eegees and the Submarine House are two more eating

places priced for people with limited funds. Both have

menus providing cold and hot sandwiches with a variety of

beverages available. Eegees is known for their own

inventive drink called an "eegees" which is like a fruit -

flavored slush, while the Submarine House depends largely

on their great variety of subs. "A lot of times after

playing tennis we go over to Eegees for a drink. An

orange eegees definitely quenches a person's thirst,"

said sophomore Steve Fowler.

Go- carts, frisbee throwing, and shooting pool were

more activities found favorable for dates. "When you're

broke, there's not much else to do other than throw a

frisbee back and forth," stated sophomore Lou Hoffman.

With more imagination than money, UA students are

finding dates can encompass just about anything. Of

course if all else fails, a couple can always see a,

movie at the Gallagher Theatre for $1.25 apiece.

FASHION


No dominant style found in today's fashion

Tucson, Arizona, is the heart of cowboy country, but

one would never know it by the dress on campus. From

head to toe, dress is casual and very diverse. Even

though an occasional cowboy hat can be seen, men are

wearing no headgear, while women adorn their heads

with scarves. Underneath the multi -colored material

is hair of all styles. For both men and women the

short and styled hair seems to be most prominent.

Long hair is still hanging for both sexes and the

natural and curly styles are popping up all over. Men

are keeping the sideburns long, the moustaches short

and trimmed, and the dignified beards are being worn

by more and more students and professors.

The Western tone is a little more apparent in shirts

for men and women. The western button -up shirt goes

well with all pants and gives a casual mood. Even

vests and matching jackets coming back in style can

give a rugged western look or a very sharp, trim look.

Summertime shirts are getting smaller for girls.

Halters, tank tops, scarves, and tube tops are worn to

cover only the bare necessities and still allow for a

golden brown tan. The guys simply wear tee -shirts or

no shirts at all to stay as cool as possible in the

hot Arizona air.

Cowboys, farmers, painters and soldiers are all

apparent in legwear this year. The comfortable, dependable

Levi's denim and corduroy pants are the most

common, followed by the white painters pants complete

with many large pockets and brush loops. The green and

beige fatigue pants are worn both long and short, and

overalls have evolved into attractive one -piece jumpsuits

for the ladies. High -cut pants for women give

a very sharp look to female wear, and the same holds

true for the new "European -cut" slacks for men.

Flared pants are the most dominant this year as in many

past years. Leather belts, both tooled and plain,

give a western air to pants, but women are beginning

to turn from the wide belt to the slim belt for highwaisted

pants and skirts.

Footwear is pretty much the same every year, changing

only with the seasons. It did take one small shift,

however. All over campus one could see the colorful,

thick thongs along with the regular thongs and various

assorted leather sandals. Sandals are found on two

levels for the ladies. Low -to- the -ground, flat sandals

and the very high platformed sandals were seen often.

Platforms and clogs are very popular again this year,

and certainly not for their sturdiness. Earth shoes,

desert boots, and tennis shoes are comfortable footwear

for both male and female.

Head decorations are definitely

non -western. Many students are

wearing shades to block out the

fierce sun of Arizona. Familiar

wire -framed glasses are giving way

to big plastic- framed glasses in

both prescription and sunglasses.

The newest fad in head decoration

is the multi -pierced ear in which

one ear has one earring dangling

from it while the other has two or

three. Less often one sees both

ears multi -pierced.

With the onset of cold weather come

long sleeve shirts and a wide assort

ment of sweaters. A loose- necked

turtleneck sweater is found to be

popular with the ladies this year as

well as the long sweater that ties

in front. Leather coats and jackets

are worn by both men and women for

warmth and style, while a large

variety of handcrafted necklaces

add that little "something extra."

Dresses and skirts for the college

women are staying long. Even during

the summer, skirts and dresses stay

knee length or longer, and give way

at the neck and shoulders. The

dresses are of light material and of

many bright colors. The fall dresses

and skirts are of beautiful greens,

golds, oranges, greys, and reds.

Plaids are making a striking comeback

for fall and winter dress and the

material for these is heavy and warm.

Dress styles vary greatly in every

season, but the wrap- around skirts

stayed put this year.

Boots have been worn by men for

many years and now women are turning

to them for style and warmth.

Boots are worn with dresses as well

as pants by the ladies, and come in

many forms. Foot fashion, like

all fashion, depends on the season

and place. For the University of

Arizona, fashion includes styles of

all regions and is formal, casual,

but mostly individual.

WEEKENDS


Ski lifts and sunbathers attract students

Out -of -town students may have visited 4 --Mt. Lemmon and 1-- Sabino

Canyon in the Catalina Mountains, 5 --St. Augustine Cathedral in downtown

Tucson, and 2 --Old Tucson and 3 -- Arizona -Sonora Desert Museum

west of Tucson during any free time they had from studying.

For UA students, Tucson is the center of a

circle whose radius takes in a multitude of entertainment

points in the Southwest. Looking to the north is Mt.

Lemmon, sporting a ski valley in the winter and year -

round entertainment in the old lodge that still stands

in all its rustic glory. To the northeast is Sabino

Canyon. Springwater and an occasional nude sunbather

act as natural magnets for most of Tucson throughout

the year. The east holds the Arizona -Sonora Desert

Museum; an intricate and elaborate natural zoo, composed

primarily of desert life. To the south is Nogales,

the gateway to Old Mexico. Prices are cheap there,

especially for your favorite brew. And it's not even

that far away. Out west, naturally, is Old Tucson.

Reproducing some of the original structures of the

Old West, it is now an amusement facility and a serious

motion picture studio with some of the most realistic

settings to be found. Mock gun battles are staged

several times a day to the delight of visitors.

63


TUCSON COMMUNITY CENTER


The Tucson Community Center sponsors several big -name concerts in

addition to its regular productions of A.C.T., the Tucson Civic Ballet,

and the Tucson Symphony and Youth Symphony Orchestras. Some

of the artists who appeared during the year were War, Tower of Power,

Barry Manilow and Paul McCartney and Wings. 1,2,3,4 --The Corn-

munity Center is more than a stage, though -it's surrounded by a convention

center which includes the Marriott Hotel, Fremont House,

meeting rooms and the La Placita Village of shops and offices. Inside the

huge arena, which can serve as an ice skating and hockey rink or a

concert stage, is plenty of lighting and seating 5 & 6.

COLLEGE OF

AGRICULTURE

Researchers

study beef,

plant life

1 --Dr. McDaniel separates plant components.

2 --At the agriculture extension, Eloyes Shuett

prepares sides of pork for slicing and packaging

for the sale to university students and

faculty. 3 --With time running out, a student

toils into the night. 4 -- Lights remain on long

after most students have left the campus,

while those in the architecture building work

on projects due the next day. 5-- Architectural

models are becoming the best medium

for presenting work.

An exciting method of "test -

tube" plant breeding was underway

in the Agriculture College. Geneticist

Robert McDaniel worked

on a project involving plant cells

that enabled scientists to predict

plant characteristics. By mixing

mitochondria (the "powerhouses" of

the cell) of two parent plants,

the resulting hybrid could be

selected for further breeding. The

most important result of this research

was higher yield, which

would create more food from crops

for world consumption. Dr. Mc-

Daniel's research was only the

beginning of a new phase in genetics

which could lead to "test -

tube" mating in both plants

and animals.

Tired of rising beef prices?

So are Dr. John Marchello and Dr.

Forrest Dryden of the Animal

Sciences Department, and they're

developing a management and

feeding system for cattle that

will reduce meat production costs

without altering the quality of

the meat.

The project involves feeding

calves in three different test

groups with varied grain concentrate

rations. Calves from each

group are compared periodically

for quality and taste of their

beef.

Drs. Marchello and Dryden

hope their work will result in

more efficient production and

lower costs.


COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE

All -night work sessions

give architects rapport

After all the other classrooms

have been emptied of students and

papers on the floor, the lights of

the Architecture Building keep

burning. The students keep working,

constructing models and revising

designs in what Dean Robert Mc-

Connell calls "the great tradition

of architecture education."

There are three reasons for the

all- weekend all -night sessions,

according to McConnell. First,

"design is a slow process. It

takes time to get ideas, test

alternatives, let the ideas mature

and make decisions on drawing and

models to communicate these ideas."

Second, "Architects are just

human. They procrastinate, wanting

their final project to be perfect."

Third, "Architecture students

tend to take pride in this

masochistic activity! It makes

them feel special."

The all -night work sessions are

called "charettes." The word is the

name of a cart which collected the

finished projects of eighteenth -

century architecture students

scattered around Paris.

Faculty often attend these

charettes to offer moral support as

well as advice. McConnell attributes

the close rapport in the

architecture college to the one -toone

communication enjoyed by faculty

and students. "We have a lot of

dialog, debate and criticism,

because we all fee I special about

what we do. On the last few days

before a project is due, the

faculty come back at night and give

more than the 100 per cent above and

beyond the twenty hours a week they

spend in the classroom."

COLLEGE OF BUSINESS AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION

Grant makes possible program in

Retirement Housing Administration

The beneficial effects of a

warm climate has attracted many

retirees to Arizona. This influx

of older citizens has created a

demand for quality administrators

for retirement facilities in the

area. The University of Arizona,

with the help of a federal grant,

has created a program for the

training of-"administrators and

planners for retirement housing,

personal care homes, other longterm

care programs and local,

state, or federal offices on aging."

This program and one other at

North Texas State are the only two

existing in the United States.

The program is six years old

and has thirty -three students

enrolled. Perspective members of

the program must have a bachelors'

degree and apply to the Retirement

Housing Administration. There

are forty -eight units required for

degree qualification, three in an

internship in a retirement facility.

The school has connections with

several Tucson -based nursing homes,

making it possible to place students

almost anywhere in the

country.

While participating in internship

the students are assigned

to either the administrator of the

establishment or a department head.

Through this process students

receive first -hand experience in

running a facility and handling

fundamental problems of the patients.

In most cases the internships

result in employment after

graduation.

Dr. Theodore Koff and Dr.

Nancy O'Connor, the administrators

of the program, are happy with its

success. The recognition brought

by the program has enabled the

school to receive several other

grants to aid in the study of old

age and broaden the established

curriculum.


COLLEGE OF EARTH SCIENCES

Tree -rings record earthly happenings

Parts of New Zealand, South America, Australia

and the United States are tucked away in the UA

Stadium. More than 140,000 samples from these and

other places are stored and studied here. The

Laboratory of Tree -Ring Research has its main office

in a converted locker room on the west side of the

stadium.

The study of annual growth rings in trees, or

dendrochronology, is the most precise dating method

known. The Southwest is an ideal location for this

method of dating. This is the result of many

favorable factors. Not all trees can be used. Trees

with varied ring widths caused by definite growing

seasons are needed. In the Southwest, trees' growth

is limited by the amount of precipitation they

receive, causing specific patterns of rings. Past

societies made use of many trees, thus leaving us

their remains.

Before rings from a past era can be dated, they

must be cross -dated with a set of rings that are

dated. A dendrochronologist begins achronology, or

ring sequence, by sampling live trees. A coring tool

is used to take the samples. With these cores it is

possible to compile the chronology for several hundred

years. Next, wood from pioneer homes is sought and

dated. From these cores one can extend the chronology

back by finding the place where the different ages of

wood cross -date. It has taken the lab 70 years to

compile "complete" chronologies of chosen areas.

A tree stays in one place all of its life,

recording its surroundings. Not only do its rings

record the number of years it has lived, but they

also record information about the environment.

Dendroclimatology deals with the information the

rings contain about climate. Studies are being

conducted on the effects of pollution and earthquakes.

Also, the lab is currently working with the U.S.

Forest Service in a study of past fires.

Dr. Bryant Bannister, director of the research

laboratory and associate dean of the Earth Sciences

College, feels that dendrochronology is one of the

most exciting and open fields of scientific study.

COLLEGE OF EDUCATION

UA, Navajo Nation

train new teachers

The Navajo Nation, in cooperation with the

university, sought funds to develop a corps of

1,000 Navajo teachers under the Navajo Teacher Education

Development Program, a nationally acclaimed

project.

Navajo teachers are needed since only four

percent of the 28,000 teachers teaching Navajo

children are Navajo.

The university program consisted of three

sites; Chinle, Granado and Tuba City. The program

instructors are members of the faculty and

are flown to these sites to train college -level

students to become teachers.

Dr. Robert Norris, Assistant Professor of

Education Administration and director of the College's

Indian Education Program, said, "The long

range desire of the Navajo Nation is to have their

children be bicultural -that is, able to live in

both worlds."

1 --The purpose of the layered -tube solar

collector is to determine temperature attainability,

efficiency and cost characteristics.

It is constructed from low cost glass tubes

similar to those used in fluorescent light

fixtures. 2-- Students of the Navajo culture

are learning to teach their own people. 3 --

A little Navajo boy from the reservation participated

in a class located on a learning site.

4 --The engineering department is studying

the idea of using solar energy to regenerate

a dissicant to dry the air from an evaporative

cooler.


COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING

Researchers

study solar

energy units

Homebuyers are interested in

purchasing a solar heating system

until they find out its cost. If

the governmental price regulations

are lifted from natural gas, people

will be interested in solar heating

again. The expected shortage of

natural gas would make the price

rise tremendously.

A solar unit is economical to

operate because it will decrease

home and office utility bills by 60

to 70 percent. But according to

M.D. Martin, Professor of Aeronautical

Sciences, a small unit

costs $1,000 to $2,000 to install

and will take eight to nine years

to recover its cost through fuel

savings.

Martin instigated solar research

projects such as a high

pressure boiler which generates

electricity using solar energy.

Martin said that home and office

units could reduce TG &E's peak

load.

Under Martin's supervision,

seniors are investigating the possibilities

of a solar energy still

that will distill undrinkable

water into usable water. The still

was feasible in remote areas such

as Canyonlands North Park, Utah,

where the modulated research project

was conducted.

COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS

College offers

wide variety

of new courses

1 --Joe Demer, a Forensic practitioner, works

on his debate for tournaments across the

country. 2 --A day model is one of the many

visual aids used in sculpture. 3 --In The Last

Meeting of the "Knights of the White Magnolia',

one of the knights James J. Wiers as

"Red Grover ", prepares to leave the meeting.

4-- Robert Meyer, a student in metal working,

hammers out a piece of metal for a project.

The School of Music had the

Billy Taylor Trio on campus for

more than entertainment. Taylor

was the first Arizona jazz resident

in a program designed to bring

professional musicians into contact

with students. Jazz masters came

to the UA once a semester, and for

a few days taught workshops,

lecture- demonstrations, individual

study and group interchange. With

the growth of the program it was

hoped that the Music School could

provide a focal point for the study

of jazz at the University.

One of the projects sponsored

by the Radio -TV -Film Bureau was a

series of programs designed to

inform the public about candidates

for public office. KUAT -TV conducted

extensive surveys to

determine Tucson's major problems

as seen by her citizens. Students

confronted candidates with these

issues, asking for views. It was

pointed out to the candidates that

some of the issues they were basing

campaigns on were not in their

scope of authority. The programs

provided an interesting focus on

political promises.

The drama department offered


a season of plays spanning Shakespeare

to "Girl Crazy." The plays

were directed by both faculty and

advanced students, with all parts

filled by the university community.

The Last Meeting of the "Knights

of the White Magnolia" opened on

campus a day before the Broadway

opening, receiving wide acclaim.

Other productions included Hotel

Paradiso, The Life of King Henry V,

The Rimers of Edlritch, The Pranks

of Scapin, and Bugs and Other

Animals.

"Update" was the key word for

the art department. Dr. Conant,

the new director, brought in

several ideas to improve the status

of the department. A sequence of

courses in modern art was offered,

and programs in photography and

crafts were opened. Professional

photographers and native craftsmen

were hired to provide the best

instruction available. An ongoing

faculty exhibit was prepared and

the slide library expanded. During

the year, the art department was

raised to a higher level. More

activities were offered to the

community, which resulted in

better participation.

76

GRADUATE COLLEGE

Graduate students working for the Bureau of

Ethnic Research are rarely doing office work.

Instead they may be catching a plane to Mexico or

riding a horse down the side of the Grand Canyon.

These students aren't working for grades or units,

but for practical experience and education.

According to Dean Rhodes of the Graduate College,

the organization of the college is often misunderstood.

Incorporating the workings of most of the

colleges on campus, "higher learning" of this college

begins where an undergraduate major leaves off.

Students in various fields are working toward Masters'

Degrees, Specialist Degrees or Doctoral Degrees.

Students in the field of cultural anthropology

Bureau of Ethnic Research

employs graduate students

who work in the Bureau of Ethnic Research do studies

dealing with applied anthropology. An example of

research done by the bureau is the recently completed

study On patterns of Mexican immigration to and from

the United States. Public service projects such as

tracing Indian ancestry and researching old Indian

documents which date back to the 1850's are accomplished

through government funding.

Dr. Theodore Downing, director of the Bureau of

Ethnic Research, explains that the role of the bureau

is to provide information on people. Especially

important is the job of representing the "silent

masses" -the minority groups and the poor -who are

often overlooked in political processes.


Law students got some writing practice by

producing and editing their own legal journal, the

Arizona Law Review. They acquire writing, analytical

and research skills needed to write court briefs

through their work.

Second semester law students took notes on

recent Arizona cases from the Supreme Court and Court

of Appeal. Second year students wrote on a new area

in law or one that was unsettled, while third year

students served as editors.

"As the student participation increased, the

quality of the Review got better," said Mike Rubin,

editor -in- chief.

The first of the Arizona Law Review's four issues

was dedicated to Dean Joseph Livermore, who stepped

down from his job at the end of the year.

COLLEGE OF LAW

During the last decade many of

the cultures that have helped create

the culture of the United

States have been recognized for

their contributions. The American

Indian societies and languages have

been of special interest in the

Southwest because of their influence

in areas such as architecture,

language, and legends. Also,

in the western region of the nation

there are a great deal of resources

available to the person researching

the American Indian.

The study of Indian languages

has been of particular interest in

the linguistics section of the

College of Liberal Arts. Classes

studying not only the language but

its structure and how this structure

was formed are offered. While

classes in Hopi and Navajo are

the most common, a course in read-

formation of native languages has

been used to help anthropologists

and other professionals gain insight

into these cultures.

Student interest in the linguistics

portion of the cultures has

increased during the three years

of the program. The enrollment in

the classes has doubled, and in

some cases tripled during the exsistance

of the courses.

The success of the program

studying the linguistics of Indian

languages has led to the acquisition

of a N.E.H. Grant, which is federal

money to help set up a program of

study. The purpose of this grant

is to set up a program in the

study of the American Indian

cultures.

COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS

Sun's shape

under watch

In the midst of the many departments

of the College of Liberal

Arts, several individuals stand out.

Dr. Henry Hill, a researcher and

professor in the physics department,

is one of these people. He

has received both national and

international recognition for his

discovery of the oscilation of the

sun. By studying the time laspes

between these inner movements of

the sun, scientists are able to

learn more about its core.

The discovery of the sun's

oscilation was purely accidental.

Thirteen years ago Dr. Hill and his

associates wanted to study gravitation,

but they had difficulty in

procuring funds. In 1970, when

some of the test apparatus was completed,

Dr. Hill noticed the sun's

changing shape. His observation

led to further investigation of the

phenomena and the building of a

large telescope in the southern

Catalina Mountains.

COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS

How peoples' lives are affected by

the environment has become the

subject of study known as environmental

psychology. In this field

psychologists investigate the

manner in which many people react

to their surroundings. This

probe of human reactions has been

accomplished with experiments

such as one having students tell

their feelings about landscapes

in slides.

The program at the U of A is

relatively new, yet it has contributed

a great deal to the field;

two of the ten books published

on the subject originated at the

University.

Dr. Lawrence Wheeler, head of

the Psychology department, states

that the purpose of this field is

to make living more comfortable

and practicable by making the

environment more pleasant.


One kind of vacation available to students

is the seven -week Guadalajara program. Six hundred

students, along with several professors, live and

study in Mexico for the summer. There is no language

requirement; consequently the amount of Spanish

mastered varies considerably. Students are exposed

to the culture in a variety of ways; over

fifty percent of the students live with Mexican

families, while the remainder live in pensions

or dormitories. The course of study includes music,

history, folklore, Spanish, art and economics -

taught in English. The advantage of teaching and

taking these courses in a foreign country is the

availability of the country's natural resources and

culture to complement the courses.

program abroad. The program is associated with the

University of Florence. As in the Guadalajara

program there is no language requirement, and several

of the classes are taught in English. The

students live in pensions and tour four other

cities besides Florence.

Both program have grown considerably. Eugene

von Teubor, the director of the programs abroad,

attributes this growth to the increase of student

knowledge about the programs and the larger number

of students interested in studying abroad.

hard to bear a persistent pain -what next? Your

physician may refer you to Dr. Burnell Brown and the

staff of the University Hospital Pain Clinic. The

clinic, one of few in the country, holds as its purpose

the treatment of intractable pain.

Brown believes this area of human suffering is

greatly underemphasized. "More people," he says,

"are disabled each year by lower back pain than die

of cancer." The clinic sees about 1400 cases every

year, involving mostly back and neck ailments. A

wide variety of treatments are employed, including

nerve blocks, physical therapy, acupuncture, medication,

psychologic counseling, and neurosurgery.

But the most important thing the patient receives

is a morale boost from a compassionate staff.

The Pain Clinic, one of eight in the country,

includes medical students in its treatment program.

Brown feels the students gain invaluable experience

in dealing with suffering patients and their needs,

and would like to see the establishment of more

clinics similar to the one in Arizona.


The Air Force and Army ROTC

programs are extensions of the

United States' national defense

system. They are also sources

for the university student to use

in gaining a well- rounded college

education. The basic goal of ROTC

is to bring to the officer corps

mature, competent leadership,

which is essential to the military

strength of the U.S.

Students involved in ROTC

attend classes that include

principles of leadership, military

history, national security,

tactics, defense policies, and

other areas. The most visible

part of the program is the Drill

SCHOOL OF MILITARY SCIENCE AND AEROSPACE

Teams, which performed on Parent's

Day, and other occasions. Other

activities included the Rifle

Team, Rangers, Orienteers, and

Adventure Training, all of which

are physically demanding.

Rangers learned mountaineering

techniques such as repelling.

Orienteers were set down in the

middle of Rose Canyon or the

Sahuaro National Monument with a

map and compass. They were

expected to find several markers,

and then meet at a designated

point. An entire Saturday was

spent learning about rifles and

terrain, and throwing dummy

grenades on a competetive basis.

COLLEGE OF MINES

Miners hit the dirt

Students in the College of

Mines enjoyed an obvious but new

form of recreational activity -

mining. Their mine is operated on

a volunteer, co -op basis, with

the students working mostly on

weekends. Some claim to have

learned more out there in one

weekend than from the whole previous

semester. As Edward Jucevic

said, "The mine is a really unique

laboratory, a place where the

students can get out and do what

they've learned in the classroom."

The San Xavier Mine was given

to the College of Mines by the

Anamax Mining Company last year,

along with some mining equipment.

It has a 270 -foot shaft and about

3000 feet of underground workings.

Mining there is on a much smaller

scale than most operations, but

the principles are the same and

teach students new blasting and

drilling techniques, rock support

methods, mine surveying and

ventilation. The students also

learn mine safety, work scheduling,

and mine organization from the

experience.

At one time the mine produced

commercial ore, and though none

was spotted this year, it may

produce again. Meanwhile, the

mining students are getting back

to basics to learn their skills.


College limits enrollment

through selection process

Because of an increase in the number of applications

in recent years, the College of Nursing has

extended its academic year to twelve months and is

selecting its students.

The college received approval to limit enrollment

in the summer of 1974, according to Mrs. Katherine

Mason, nursing advisor. The first class

which this approval affected began studies in

junior nursing courses during the summer of 1976.

Approximately 50 students for each term during

the fall, spring and summer terms will be admitted,

According to Mrs. Mason. Students are selected on

COLLEGE OF NURSING

their high school and pre -clinical nursing grades,

awards and honors, health related activities, nursing

and personal goals and three recommendations.

The applications must be filed a year prior to the

student's clinical studies.

Students used to be admitted directly into the

college, but next year they will enroll in the

College of Liberal Arts for pre- nursing.

"We do not have a waiting list like some

other nursing colleges," said Mrs. Mason. "Those

applicants who are not selected may submit a request

to be considered for next year."

COLLEGE OF PHARMACY

Pharmacy students in their third professional

year received practical experience in hospitals and

clinics through the newly formed clinical pharmacy

program this year.

The elective program was designed to educate

the students in educating patients, physicians

and nurses on drugs and medicines, according to Carl

Trinca and Alan Barreuther, two of the twelve instructors

in clinical pharmacy.

Approximately forty students worked fifteen

hours a week at the University Health Science Center,

Marana Community Clinic, Tucson General and the Vet -

erns Hospital. Students went with physicians on

patient rounds, helped decide on the types of drugs

and dosage for particular cases and advised physicians

on costs of medicines and usage.

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Physical Education is more thanjogging

Sports skills are only one aspect of work for

physical education students. Physics, biology, mathematics

and photography were all part of a research

program in the Department of Physical Education.

Undergraduate and graduate students had the option

to do research work in these areas: biomechanics,

curriculum, sports history, philosophy, motor learning

and physiology of exercise.

Physiology of exercise includes testing how

efficiently the body uses oxygen. This area also

examines ways in which a person can exercise to prolong

his life. Attitudes and underlying beliefs about

movement are part of the philosophy aspect of

research. Mechanics of human performance are studied

in the area of biomechanics. Films of pro baseball

players, Olympic gymnasts and other athletes are

analyzed to determine variables such as range and

speed of motion, center of gravity and length of

stride. It is possible that less skilled athletes

can improve by using the same mechanical principles

that champions use. Several areas of these studies

were combined in a project dealing with young children.

Students observed the children's movement patterns in

relation to their physical maturation and perception.

This research offered students a unique supplement

to their study of human movement and sports skills.

INTERVIEW

President Schaefer, what changes do

you foresee in the University of Arizona

by the 100th anniversary of its founding -

the year 1985?

I believe that by 1985 the University

of Arizona will clearly be recognized as

one of our nation's outstanding state universities.

The University should be recognized

for its academic distinction in the

sciences, social sciences and medicine.

expect that the University will have about

30,000 FTE students by 1985. I expect that

our sports programs will be generally

strong and well -balanced.

In what areas is the UA particularly

strong at present?

At this point in time, the University

has succeeded in building very strong academic

programs in astronomy, anthropology,

sociology, philosophy, romance languages,

optical sciences, and the basic sciences.

Various other departments have also succeeded

in developing distinguished academic

programs and it would be difficult to cite

all of them.

Is there anything about the University

that you would like to change?

I would like to be able to double the

budget. Arizona has such great potential

as a University, and I would like to be

able to give the State a truly stimulating

and productive academic center and resource.

What would you say are some of the

problems facing the UA?

Space continues to be our most serious

problem. The University of Arizona has one

of the smallest physical plants for a school

of our size, and it really limits our opportunities

in many areas. I hope that this

is a problem that we will be able to solve

with the passage of time.

What do you view as your major accomlishments

during your years as president?

I view them as being the development

of the Center for Creative Photography,

the construction of our new Library and the

Flandrau Planetarium, and the outstanding

success that we have had in attracting an

extremely talented group of faculty members

to our campus.

You're a photographer, aren't you?

Photography has long been an avocation

of mine, and I particularly enjoy black -

and -white photography. I am especially

attracted to the Arizona environment and

most frequently photograph landscapes and

many other interesting abstract designs

that I find in nature.

Dr. Schaefer, do you think there is

any problem with the relationship between

students and administration here?

I and most of the members of my staff

feel that we have a very comfortable working

relationship with the student body. There

are ample opportunities for interaction and

for the interchange of ideas, and I think

that this has resulted in a very healthy

campus environment for the student body.

How would you feel about having a

student on the Board of Regents?

I am opposed to the idea. It is a

very complex job that I don't feel the

average student could give an adequate

amount of time to. There are also problems

of conflict of interest.

Do you have any plans for the future

beyond serving as President of the University

of Arizona?

I have no personal ambition at the

present time beyond trying to become a very

effective president and spokesman for the

University of Arizona. These have been the

most satisfying years of my life, and

consider it an honor and a privilege to be

able to hold my position.


UA President John P. Schaefer


90

SURVEY

How do you view the

students' role in determining

the University budget?

The Constitution provides that the University

shall be open to students of both sexes and the

instruction shall be as nearly free as possible. The

students could remind the Legislature of this Constitutional

mandate and demand an educational program

second to none.

- Elliot Dunseath

The students should be heard, but I do not feel

that they have the background and experience yet to

actually determine what the final budget figures

should be.

-Rudy Campbell

The students haven't shown substantial interest

in student affairs. They should have control of their

own funds; however, budgets are complex and I feel

the control of the budget has to be left up to the

administration.

-Ralph Bilby

What is your opinion of

student government at the

University of Arizona?

I feel there isn't much potential in the

government since it depends on rigorous support.

There is little participation among the students.

- Ralph Bilby

I think it is a worthwhile organization and is

on the right track.

- Dwight Patterson

I am disturbed that it seems that there is an

adversary position between the Arizona Student Association

and the Board of Regents. I think that this

is brought about by the fact that the Association

primarily brings matters to the Board that the Board

absolutely cannot agree to.

I have written some letters to some of the

Association officers urging them to take on projects

that would be helpful to their university and something

which the Board could work with them on.

Instead of that they brought us controversial issues

which the taxpayers of this State do not want us to

approve. Therefore, when we turn the students down,

they think that we are anti -student. This is not the

case at all.

-Rudy Campbell

Why did you want to be on

the Board of Regents?

Every man wants to render some community service.

I wanted to do what I could to help.

-Rudy Campbell

I didn't ask for the appointment.

- Dwight Patterson

It's one of the most prestigious boards in the

state as Arizona thinks highly of higher education,

so I guess my ego was involved.

-Ralph Bilby

How would you feel about

having a student on the

Board of Regents?

There are various interest groups on the campus

who could be represented on the Board of Regents.

Rather than to have a conflict of special interests on

the Board, it is best to have a well- educated and

experienced group to represent all interests in a

fair, impartial and objective manner.

-Elliot Dunseath

I have a high respect for young people who are

attempting to further their education at our universities.

But I honestly feel that they have not yet

had the experience or background to sit on the Board

of Regents and vote on the decisions that come before

us.

No student has ever had the experience of floating

bond issues or making budgets in the millions of

dollars. I feel that having them sitting there and

voting on something which they may not completely

understand would be wrong.

-Rudy Campbell

Whether or not we have a student on the Board

of Regents is entirely up to the Legislature.

- Dwight Patterson


What are your views of

liquor on campus?

I believe liquor should be permitted on campus,

provided that the places of sale and the other operating

features of a dispensary are appropriate. I voted in

favor of alcohol on campus because I felt that the

students had demonstrated enough maturity and responsibility

in handling alcohol to entitle them to have it

dispensed on campus if they so desired.

-Thomas Chandler

I voted against it because liquor is available on

the campus without any real need to conduct the sale of

liquor on the campus. Sales create legal responsibilities.

- Elliot Dunseath

All of our campuses are completely surrounded by

businesses that dispense liquor of all types. Therefore,

any student can just step across the street virtually

anywhere around our campuses and get a drink.

-Rudy Campbell

I have no personal objection to the selling of

liquor on campus. However, I voted no due to the political

views at this time. If the question were passed

there would have been problems with the legislature.

-Ralph Bilby

How do you see the future

of education in Arizona's

universities in 1985?

It will become harder for the universities to get

all of the funds they need.

-Ralph Bilby

Expansion of our campuses is going to be necessary

if the enrollment continues to increase, and I think it

will even though this year it has declined slightly at

the two larger universities.

-Rudy Campbell

I do not think the growth among numbers of students

will be as substantial as it has been in the past

decade and would not be surprised if the growth was not

limited at the three existing institutions with the

possibility of additional institutions or satellite

campuses being established.

-Thomas Chandler

I think we have a great University system and

it will become even greater.

What

More recognition of the

The University will be larger.

There will be a larger proportion

of older students and those who

are returning to school fifteen or

twenty years after receiving their

degree to check on new developments

in their fields or to enter

new fields. The UA's involvement

in investigations for the government

will be greater.

Albert B. Weaver

ifortunately, I feat that

iancial resources will be more

Difficult to acquire and that

and effectively.

Gary Munsinger

SURVEY

If you could change anything about

the University, what would it be?

Those things which I would

change, if I could, are largely

beyond the power of a university:

the need for more buildings, more

capital so as to replace depreciated

equipment, and the like.

-Hugh Odishaw, Earth Sciences

I wish there were more attention

given to integrating the

design of the campus. We should

develop more exterior spaces for

learning and relaxation, and

increase the use of color.

- Robert McConnell, Architecture

I should like to see University

requirements go beyond those

of freshman English and physical

education. It should be the vision

of the University to help students

become citizens of the mind.

-Paul Rosenblatt, Liberal Arts

It seems somewhat ironic to me

that while engineering students

have to take humanities courses,

liberal arts students are not

required to investigate technology

by taking basic engineering courses.

-W. H. Dresher, Mines

What could be done about the student who feels isolated?

It might be a good idea to

have small group or conference

type presentations where students

can interact with each other

instead of listening to the

professor lecture all the time.

- Albert Picchioni, Pharmacy

Advisory centers might be

helpful to the student who feels

isolated. Our laboratories are

small, and this needs to be

continued.

-Gladys Sorenson, Nursing


That

is, if you feel that such a problem exists.

UA College Deans

What do you think will be different

by 1985, the UA's 100th birthday?

We hope the college of Fine

Arts will have developed several

new programs. Naturally, this would

require vastly improved facilities.

- Robert Hull, Fine Arts

There is a good chance that our

understanding of the causes of the

"killer diseases" will have progressed

to the point where we can

put more emphasis on prevention.

-Neal Vanselow, Medicine

As more and more social and

economic problems are identified,

education will become more specialized,

job- oriented and professional.

-Rene Manes, BPA

There will be increased emphasis

on training specializations at

the undergraduate level, and research

programs for graduates.

-F. Robert Paulsen, Education

Nine years is a very short

time in the evolution of a university.

There will be some programs

with new names, but little fundamental

change in academic offerings.

-Walter Fahey, Engineering

It seems to me that the "lonesome

student" is one of the most

serious casualties of growth and

large size. We must all make an

effort to be considerate, friendly

to the individual student.

- Herbert Rhodes, Graduate

I would place priority upon

mixer sessions such as impromptu

athletic activities or evening

socials where a part of the session

is devoted to good open discussion.

Interested in sleeping on the beach, visiting Mexico, and taking

boat rides on "La Sirena"? Students enrolled in a course called

Oceanography, which is taught by Dr. Donald Thomson, did all of

these things during three field trips which are included each semester

in the lab section of the class. The lab is designed to give an

introduction to standard shipboard techniques and the basic field

work of a shallow water oceanographer. The trips to El Golfo de

Santa Clara, San Carlos, and Puerto Penasco stress the physical and

biological aspects of oceanography.

Dr. Robert Wrenn believes that there is

nothing more predictable than death. Because of

this, he developed a class called the Psychology

of Death and Loss. He feels that most people

don't know how to deal with death because "it

is a taboo subject."

Topics in the

class range

from cyronics

to suicide in an

effort to teach

people how to

handle the +

inevitable. A

class project is

required from

each student

and can vary

from writing

your own

epitaph to

inviting a dying

person to class.

Learning to express oneself

confidently in a small group has

often posed problems for students.

To combat this problem

the Speech department offers a

course called Communication in

Small Groups where discussion

techniques are taught and practiced.

The class meets twice a

week and uses an arbitrary topic

to gain experience in using

methods of expression. As the

semester progresses the subject

matter becomes more important

and the expression of individual

opinions gains priority.

A journal containing critiques

of both the student's participation

and the discussion itself is kept

by each class member.

When William Penn outlawed life insurance,

calling it "wagering," he did not realize

its later importance. Professor Joseph S.

Gerber, in a life insurance class, presents the

subject in its relation to business as well as

the individual.

He stresses the

importance of insurance

in the

United States,

where longevity

and high medical

bills make planning

ahead a necessity.Insurance

is based on

probability,

where "many pay

In Creative Advertising, homework assignments

range from billboards for beer

to radio sports for vanilla ice cream. Students

learn the basics of drawing up advertisements

in five areas: outdoor, newspaper,

television, radio and direct mail.

The class is divided into six "agencies ",

and each week they present their finished

ads to be judged by the rest of the agencies.

Selling, rather than creating, is the aim

of Madison Avenue's future copywriters.

A motto used by advertising agencies is

The honey bee does more than just make honey. Students enrolled in a

course offered by the Entomology Department are learning all about bees and

what they're good for. At the end of the semester, students are equipped with

the knowledge to set up their own colonies of bees.

Many factors are involved in the choosing of a location for bees, depending

on the intended use. Surrounding

plants and flowers near

a crop that needs pollinating

must be noted, because these

plants draw bees away from

the crop. Bees kept near

different plants produce many

unique flavors of honey.

Udall warns against N-safety conflict

October 12, 1976

Former Presidential candidate

Morris K. Udall took time out from

his busy schedule to speak at the

University of Arizona. Udall

addressed a packed house of 800

people at the Gallagher Theater in

an appearance sponsored by the

Associated Students.

One of the major points he

stressed was that the Nuclear

Safeguards Act (Proposition 200,

voted on in the November election)

might conflict with existing

Federal legislation. Udall said

he was sympathetic with the goals

of the proposition, but that he

doubted the legality and practicality

of the proposal.

The Congressman also commented

that the passage of Proposition 200

could conflict with the Federal

Atomic Energy Act which leaves the

responsibility of creating safety

guidelines up to the federal

government. This specific act

would require that any plants built

in Arizona must adhere to safety

standards and be endorsed by the

State Legislature. According to

Udall, Proposition 200 would shut

down the construction of the Palo

Verde Plant west of Phoenix.

In talking about nuclear

safety, the Congressman said that

he agrees with many of the requirements

included in the proposal and

believes that solar energy potential

must be developed before there is

limited expansion of nuclear

energy resources.

Udall also said the liberals

who plan on supporting Senator

Eugene McCarthy should realize

there are decided differences

between Jimmy Carter and Gerald

Ford. Ford, he commented, has

ignored most enviromental issues

and the decay of big American

cities, while Carter has the

support of environmentalists for

his past record as Governor of

Georgia. Udall, too, has been

endorsed by several environmental

groups.

J immy Carter III campaigns for dad

October 6, 1976

James Earl Carter Ill, the son

of Presidential candidate Jimmy

Carter, came to the UA campus on a

campaign swing which took him through

Arizona and New Mexico. Chip Carter

was originally to have spoken to

Professor Donald R. Hall's political

science class, but because the

classroom was overcrowded with

interested onlookers, the speech

was presented from the steps of the

Old Main fountain.

The youthful Carter spoke

about areas of campaign importance

and fielded questions from the 500

people around the fountain. During

the speech he labeled his father a

fiscal conservative and entered

most of his comments on his father's

campaign plans. He also emphasized

his father's opinions on a

balanced federal budget by 1981,

honesty in government, and the

reduction of federal bureacuracy.

Carter's one -day swing through

Arizona also took him to the Duval

Mines, meetings with Democratic

Party regulars, KUAI for a taped

interview, and the Navajo reservation.

The resemblance of Chip Carter

to his father was astonishing. Both

stand approximately 5'7 ", their hair

is about the same length, and both

talk in the same Georgia drawl. And

of course, the patented Jimmy Carter

smile --teeth and all - -was very

much in evidence.

In dealing with the issues of

the campaign, Chip remarked, "Dad

favors the decriminalization of

possession of less than one ounce of

marijuana--but some members of my

family have hoped for less than

five pounds."

Discussing the resignation of

Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz, he

said, "I wanted three things when

Dad became President: to be able

to move back to Plains, Georgia,

live in my mobile home and continue

farming; to be able to call Washington

and talk with the President

any time I wanted; and to be in

Washington when Daddy fired Earl

Butz. I won't have to worry about'

the third one now."

He said he thought his father

won the first debate against Ford,

and would continue to do the same

in the remaining two debates.

Changing the pace of his talk,

Carter denied having any political

ambition, and said he'd be

satisfied with a seat on the

Sumter County Education Board in

Georgia. Presently Carter is

working toward a college degree

with a triple major in history,

political science, and sociology.

LIQUOR ON CAMPUS

October 11, 1976

The Arizona State Board of

Regents nixed an attempt by the

three state universities to obtain

liquor licenses for the sale of

alcoholic beverages on campus. The

discussion came after a special

two -hour hearing of the policy

committee where a large number of

legislators, university administrators,

retail liquor salesmen

and religious leaders spoke against

the proposal.

The board voted it down 4 -1,

with the only dissenting vote

coming from Thomas Chandler. He

said later, "I think the students

are mature enough and have demonstrated

that they can handle liquor

on campus." UA representatives at

the meeting were Student Relations

Vice -President Richard Clausen

speaking for President Schaefer,

and ASUA President Pat Mitchell,

speaking for the students.

MAO'S DEATH

September 10, 1976

The last great revolutionary

leader of the world, Chairman Mao

Tse -Tung of the People's Republic

of China, died at age 82. His death

placed a shadow of uncertainty over

the political future of China, and

opened a gaping hole in leadership

for the 800 million people in the

country.

No official report was offered

by Hinshua, the Chinese news

agency, as to the cause of death,

but unofficial reports indicated

the Chairman had been ill for some

time and had acted more as a

mediator in China's government

rather than the day -by -day leader

of the nation.

The Chinese Central Committee

ordered a period of mourning

which lasted until a memorial

rally held in Peking on September

18, concluded with a three -minute

final salute to the last of the

revolutionary leaders. Well over

half a million people were

estimated to have come to Peking

to pay their last respects.


WAYNE HAYS

RESIGNATION

September 2, 1976

Congressman Wayne Hays

(D -Ohio) resigned from Congress

after pressure following his

alleged sexual involvement with

secretary Liz Ray. Hays' resignation

stemmed from charges that

he hired the "blonde bombshell of

Washington" for her talents in the

bedroom instead of the office.

At the time of his resignation

Hays was under investigation

by the House Ethics Committee, but

the investigation was ended

following his departure from the

House.

Since the Washington D.C.

sex scandal became one of public

interest, Elizabeth Ray has greatly

benefitted from her newly gained

popularity and exposure. She was

featured in a PLAYBOY article that

focused on the beautiful girls of

the Washington, D.C. area.

Miss Ray was also featured as

a comedienne in her official stage

debut. The Play, "Will Success

Spoil Rock Hunter," was presented

in a Chicago suburb dinner theatre.

Unfortunately for Liz Ray, the

reviews were generally negative.

HARRISES CONVICTED

August 9, 1976

William and Emily Harris were

found guilty of kidnaping and

robbery charges brought against

them by the state of California,

and received jail terms ranging

from 11 years to life, the maximum

sentence allowed.

Their kidnaping victim,

Patty Hearst, an alleged member of

the Symbionese Liberation Army, was

found guilty earlier in the year for

her part in a SLA bank robbery, but

appeals are pending until Miss

Hearst receives mental health care.

In statements made to the

court, both the Harrises scoffed

at the system of justice in

America, and spoke proudly of allegiance

to revolutionary ideals

which were the cause of their

actions. Both William and Emily

Harris were members of the

Symbionese Liberation Army.

BLACK MAJORITY RULE

September 27, 1976

Five "frontline" Black Africa

states rejected Prime Minister Ian

Smith's terms for surrender of

power to the black majority in

Rhodesia, but accepted the

principle of an interim government

preparing the way for majority

rule.

The plan submitted called for

legislative powers to be placed in

a council shared equally by blacks

and whites. The plan is the first

step to insure black majority rule

within a two -year period, but was

rejected because it would be

tantamount to legalizing a racist

and colonial structure of power.

MARS LANDINGS

September 3, 1976

The second of two Mars space

probes launched by the United

States landed smoothly on a northern

site of the Martian soil.

Viking II, a spider -like

landing module, touched down in an

area of desert, scanning scenes

never before viewed by man. 4,600

miles away rests the first ship

ever to set down on the Martian

41111111F

surface, Viking I, which sent to

earth the first photographs of the

barren Mars landscape.

Both NASA probes were designed

to determine if there were any life

on Mars, and if so, to what extent.

Cameras on both ships sent back

pictures of the horizon and the

terrain, while long mechanical arms

scooped the near -by soil, and onboard

analyzers determined whether

living substances, such as carbon

based or organic molecules were

present in the samples.

EARL BUTZ RESIGNS

October 4, 1976

When the U.S. Secretary of

Agriculture Earl L. Butz made

racist and derogatory remarks

about blacks, he came under fire

from both political parties. Butz's

remarks appeared in two magazines

which quoted his comments made

aboard an airplane returning from

the Republican National Convention.

Sources indicated Butz's

comments were overheard during a

private conversation which took

place on the airplane. Although he

never denied making the remarks,

Butz likened his racist comments to

Jimmy Carter's PLAYBOY interview.

The articles said Butz referred

to blacks as "coloreds" and

described in vulgar terms what he

said were their sexual, dress, and

bathroom preferences. Butz said

that he received no pressure from

President Ford to resign, but resigned

on his own. Following his

resignation announcement, Butz

said he hoped "to remove even the

appearance of racism as an issue

in the Ford campaign."


LEGIONNAIRE'S DISEASE

July 27, 1976

During the summer of 1976

the Pennsylvania department of the

American Legion closed its convention

in Philadelphia. Three days

later, a number of people who had

attended the convention were sick

or dead. All the victims had complained

of flu -like symptoms, but

the strange disease turned out to

be something much more serious.

The disease was eventually

named the Legionnaire's Sickness,

but the cause of this mysterious

illness was not found, leaving

medical detectives floundering in

a pool of facts, but no answers.

Of those afflicted, 29 deaths

were known to have been directly

related to the disease. Victims of

the disease ranged in age from

three to 80, with a majority over

50.

Most of those who became ill

did not exhibit any symptoms until

several days after returning home.

The first deaths did not occur

until July 27, three days after the

conclusion of the convention.

Public Health officials also

investigated a similar illness that

FORD SIGNS TAX BILL

October 5, 1976

President Ford signed a wide

ranging tax reform bill easing the

tax burden for individuals and

businesses across the nation.

While Ford said the 1,000 page

bill wasn't perfect, he was pleased

with the reforms included. He

added, however, that he had hoped

for a raise in the personal exemption

allowance from $750 to $1000,

and would urge Congress to take

such action in the future.

The lengthy piece of

legislation had been in the making

for a long time. Most of the

emphasis had been channeled into

trying to close loopholes, and

providing tax cuts for everyone in

the nation. Critics of the legislation

opposed the tax break

given to private business.

NIXON AIDES

CONVICTION UPHELD

October 12, 1976

The U.S. Court of Appeals

upheld the convictions of three

top Nixon aides involved with the

Watergate cover -up, but granted a

new trial for Nixon campaign

assistant Robert C. Mardian, who

was sentenced to a ten -month to

three -year jail term by U.S.

District Judge John J. Sirica.

Those whose convictions were

upheld included John N. Mitchell,

former Attorney General and member

of the Committee to Re -elect the

President (CREEP); H.R. Haldeman,

former White House Chief of Staff;

and John D. Ehrlichman, Nixon's

principal domestic affairs advisor.

7 The three Nixon aides were

convicted on charges of blocking

investigations into the Watergate

break -in at the Democratic National

Headquarters June 17, 1972.

Another Nixon worker, Kenneth

W. Parkinson, was acquitted on New

Years Day, when the jury turned in

the verdict.

Mitchell, Haldeman, and

Ehrlichman received jail terms of

two to eight years. Ehrlichman also

faces a 20-month jail term for his

actions with the White House

plumbers.

Former President Nixon was

also named as an unindicted

co- conspirator by the same Grand

Jury that indicted the others.

President Ford's pardon of the

former Chief Executive ended any

legal action that might have been

taken against Richard M. Nixon for

his part in the Watergate break -in

and the subsequent cover -up.

CLASSROOM

SHORTAGE

September 21, 1976

In his State of the University

message, President John P. Schaefer

said that the shortage of classroom

space has become critical,

and the school has reached the

point where there is no longer any

flexibility in the use of rooms.

Schaefer also mentioned that no

additional classroom space has been

added since the completion of the

Biological sciences building in

1970. Since then, the university

has increased enrollment by 5,000

although there was a decrease in

enrollment reported in the

graduate student population on

campus this year.

DOMESTIC SKYJACKING

September 10, 1976

A group of five Croation

independents from Yugoslavia skyjacked

a Trans World Airlines 727

jetliner which was scheduled to

fly from New York to Tucson. It

was the first domestic skyjacking

since the federal government

initiated anti -skyjacking searches

of passengers prior to any air

flight.

The Tucson -bound plane,

carrying a large group of Tucson

residents, took a detour as the

hijackers ordered the plane and a

708 escort plane on a meandering

journey which took them to

Montreal; Gander, Newfoundland

(where 35 hostages were released);

Keflavik, Iceland; and low swoops

over London and Paris.

The skyjackers were not

allowed to take -off after landing

in Paris, and there they surrendered

to authorities.

A Tucson resident, Warren

Benson, Director of the Arthritis

Foundation, was among the many

passengers aboard the plane.

favor of Ali, but Norton said after

the fight that he was robbed of a

deserved victory. The challenger

said he was sure he had won at

least ten rounds.

Ali announced his retirement

following the match, which earned

him $6 million plus a percentage

of the gate. Speculation that

he retired to avoid conflict over

the validity of his victory remained

unconfirmed.

CHINESE OFFICIALS

PURGED October 12, 1976

The widow of former Chinese

Chairman Mao Tse -Tung and 30

other top radicals of the Chinese

leadership were detained in a

purge against those who opposed the

elevation of Premier Hua Kuo -Feng

to the position of Party Chairman.

Unconfirmed reports said

Chinese radicals had plotted to

name Chiang Ching, Mao's widow,

to the party leadership post that

was held by Mao.

In a Peking dispatch, Kyodo

News Service reported a

government spokesman announced

that Hua had been named as the

new party leader. Wall posters

also appeared throughout Peking,

indicating Hua's succession to

China's top leadership post.

Other reports indicated the

arrests of the radical wing in

China provided a victory for

moderates and a reaffirmation of

the Chinese foreign policy of

detente with the United States

and the west.

In the end-

It's Carter

Campaign '76 ended with Jimmy

Carter elected President, but the

preceeding twelve months were

filled with a host of candidates

and their attempts to reach the

highest office in the land.

New Hampshire, the first

of the primaries, featured 11

candidates on the Democratic

ballot. Jimmy Carter edged a

field of liberals for a narrow

victory. Gerald Ford gained a

1300 vote victory over challenger

Ronald Reagan.

Labor-backed Washington

Senator Henry Jackson won big

in Wisconsin, a state where he

spent a great deal of time and

money. He was victorious in New

York as well.

Oklahoma's chance for the

Presidency rested with Fred Harris.

A populist, Harris' campaign never

caught on and he backed out early.

Anti -abortionist candidate

Ellen McCormack was one of many

Democrats in the race. Her single

issue campaign gained her only a

small percentage of the vote.

Fellow southerner George

Wallace found Jimmy Carter a

formidable opponent in the south

and gave up his quest for national


fortune. Wallace's endorsement of

Carter in June assured Carter the

support of the South.

Arizona Congressman Morris

K. Udall brought a touch of class

to the campaign, but his long list

of second place primary finishes

was hardly enough to overcome the

Carter bandwagon.

Carter and Ford received first

ballot nominations from their

parties, and went about the task

of choosing their running mates.

Carter selected Minnesota Senator

Walter Mondale, who appeased the

liberals of the party. President

Ford, on the other hand, picked

moderate Kansas Senator Robert

Dole. Polls taken after the

election indicated Carter gained

support with Mondale as his

running mate, while Dole did not

prove to be an asset to Ford.

The debates between Carter

and Ford (see pages 142 -143)

were the first since the Nixon -

Kennedy debates in 1960.

They were sponsored by the League

of Women Voters and televised to

over 85 million viewers. In a

campaign that was sometimes dull

and trivial, the debates were a

highlight.

Some of the trivialities

included Carter's remarks

concerning ethnic purity, and

his interview with PLAYBOY

magazine. Ford was criticized for

his remarks about Soviet

influence in eastern Europe, and

his stumble -bum image was too

often over -emphasized by the

media.

Presidential candidates Carter and

In the first Presidential

campaign debates since the Kennedy -

Nixon confrontation in 1960,

candidates Jimmy Carter and Gerald

Ford met in three, 90- minute

sessions before an estimated television

audience of over 85 million.

The debates were sponsored by the

League of Women Voters and were

televised by the three major networks

and the Public Broadcasting

System. A fourth debate between

Vice -Presidential candidates

Walter Mondale and Robert Dole

rounded out the four sessions.

September 23 was the date for

the first debate, held in the

Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia.

The matching podiums,

backdrop, and remainder of the set

were designed specifically for

the debates, and were utilized

during each one. The portable set

was flown to each debate location

so that the candidates would be

familiar with their surroundings,

not concerning themselves with

adjusting to a new atmosphere.

Both Governor Carter and

President Ford were dressed in

somber business suits, emulating

the Presidential look, and

although they were separated by

less than eight feet between the

podiums, they were separated by a

lifetime of different political

views.

The first debate featured a

wide variety of questions ranging

from the economy to unemployment.

A panel of four: Frank Reynolds,

Elizabeth Drew, James P. Gannon,

and Moderator Edwin Newman, fired

questions at the two candidates.

The format included an

opening statement by each man,

followed by questions from the

panel to Carter and Ford. Each

was given the opportunity to

respond and the panelist could

follow up with an additional

question which was then followed

by a rebuttal from the opposing

candidate.

The high point of the first

debate came when a malfunction

occured in ABC's sound system,

causing a 27- minute loss of sound

over the national air waves.

During the "great silence," both

candidates remained standing

behind their podiums, smiling

at the cameras. Jimmy Carter was

responding to a question when the

malfunction occured, and for a

few moments he continued his

remarks, unaware that he wasn't

heard by U.S. viewers.

Both men had prepared

extensively for the debates. The

two candidates appeared somewhat

nervous, in spite of their need to

present themselves as calm and

confident. Included in the

various questions and their


Ford debate on national television

rebuttals were attacks on the

opponent. Ford accused Carter

of being vague in his answer to

the question of unemployment, and

added that Carter had been vague in

many instances before. Carter

attacked Ford and the Republican

party for an unfair tax structure

favoring big business and the

wealthy. One of the toughest

questions asked of Ford during the

first debate, which concerned

domestic affiars, dealt with his

pardon of Richard Nixon. Reynolds

probed Ford about 90,000 draft

evaders remaining underground.

Ford cited his own amnesty

program and solidly defended Nixon's

pardon, saying it was necessary to

end Nixon's suffering and to get

the country going again. Carter

coolly replied that it was

difficult to understand the difference

between pardoning Nixon and

pardoning draft evaders.

Carter cited Ford's record in

unemployment and inflation as worse

than that of his predecessor,

Richard Nixon. On the other hand,

Ford accused Carter's new tax plan

of being a plot to boost taxes

for half the country's employed

people, rather than lessening the

tax burden.

Carter's crowning blow to Ford

came with the attack on Watergate,

faith in government, and the

President himself.

Ford was assumed to be the

overall winner in the domestic

affairs debate, although Carter

seemed to be the stronger of the

two in many parts. A poll by

Newsweek after the first debates

showed 37% of viewers more likely

to vote for Ford and 32% more

likely to vote for Carter.

The second of the three

debates concerned foreign affairs

and defense. Ford cited the

experience and results he had.

Carter responded to that by

saying that America had faltered

under the recent Republican rule.

Ford had the advantage of an incumbent

in mentioning recent

disclosures by the Soviet Union and

an upcoming announcement of

companies participating in the Arab

boycott.

Carter claimed that Secretary

of State Henry A. Kissinger had

acted as President in Ford's

administration. He went on to

accuse Ford and Kissinger of

continuing with the policies and

failures of Richard Nixon.

The last of the series of

debates was wide open for general

issues and questions. ABC's

Barbara Walters moderated the last

debates, in which the candidates

seemed less interested in personal

attacks and more intent on concrete

issues.

Carter wins presidency; Pima County's

new democrats suffer various losses

November 2 arrived, the

people cast their ballots, and

most citizens breathed a sigh of

relief when the campaign of 1976

was finally over. Jimmy Carter, a

modest, soft -spoken peanut farmer

from Plains, Georgia, captured the

nation's highest job, ending a

Republican reign of eight years,

many of which will be remembered as

the Nixon years of Watergate,

detente, and a Presidential

resignation. When all the ballots

were counted, Carter gained 51%

of the popular vote, while

President Ford received 48% of the

nation's support. Independent

candidate Eugene McCarthy came

in a very weak third with a mere

1% of the vote.

President -elect Carter won

23 states and the District of

Columbia, earning him the majority

of electoral votes. Ford won 27

states, but the electoral vote

from these states had less impact

than the states won by Carter.

Ford was the victor in every

western state, but it was Carter's

support in the South and Northeast

that provided him with his margin

of victory.

An Associated Press poll

indicated Carter's margin of

victory was guaranteed by major

national groups. The Plains,

Georgia, native won 92% of the

black vote, 72% of the Jewish vote,

60% of the Polish vote, 70% of the

large urban vote, and 58% of the

small urban vote. Carter's

smallest margin of victory came

with the Catholic vote, 56 %,

usually a Democratic stronghold.

This election year marked the

first time since 1848 that a

President had been elected from

the Deep South. Zachery Taylor

was the last deep southerner to be

elected to the White House. With

Jimmy Carter at the helm of the

nation, President Jerry Ford now

joined the elite club of past

Presidents. Early polls had

indicated Carter would win the

contest hands down, but as the

election drew near, most pollsters

agreed that the outcome was too

close to call. Many felt that

had the campaign extended one more

week, Gerald Ford would have been

elected. Following the debates,

Ford gained on Carter, but Ford's

campaign ending rally was too

little too late.

Nationally, the Democrats

continued their control of both

Houses of Congress with a two to

one margin in the House, and a

solid majority in the Senate.

Democrats, too, fared well in

Gubanatorial contests across the

nation, winning nine of 1.4 races.

In state elections that

gained national exposure,

California Senator John Tunney was

defeated by former San Francisco

State University President S.I.

Hayakawa, Senator James Buckley of

New York was soundly defeated by

former U. N. Ambassador Patrick

Daniel Moynihan, and former

astronaut Harrison Schmidt ousted

New Mexico Senator Joseph Montoya.

In local elections of

major significance, former Pima

County Attorney Dennis DeConcini

was the victor over Republican

Congressman Sam Steiger in the

Arizona race for the United States

Senate. DeConcini received

80,000 more votes than did his

northern Arizona rancher

counterpart.

In the second Congressional

District, Morris K. Udall won an

easy, lopsided victory over former

Vietnam prisoner of war Laird

Gutterson. It was Udall's eighth

consecutive victory to Congress

following his appointment to the

post in 1961, when his brother,


Stewart Udall, was selected to

serve as the Secretary of Interior

in the Kennedy administration. Mo

had been the runner -up in the race

for the Democratic Presidential

nomination. Following his reelection,

the Congressman said he

was glad to be finished

campaigning for the present, and

he would make every effort to

encourage the Carter presidential

administration to be productive in

the areas of national health

insurance, jobs, aid to cities,

and conservation.

Elsewhere around the city and

county, Katie Dusenberry won a

hard fought battle for the

District One Supervisor spot

against incumbent Ron Asta, ending

Asta's work toward controlled

growth in the county. Other "New"

Democrats to be defeated included

State Representative Bruce Wheeler

losing to Larry Hawke by 11 votes

in District 13, Anna Cullinan's

loss to Emmett McGloghlin and

Arnold Jeffers in District 14,

and Jo Cauthorn's defeat at the

hands of Tom Goodwin and John

Kromko in District 12. In key

State Senate races, Jim Kolbe

ousted incumbent Lucy Davidson in

the District 14 race.

Both Propositions 200 and 300,

which called for nuclear

safeguards and the end to vehicle

emissions inspection, respectively,

were defeated by Arizona voters,

while all four constitutional

amendments passed by a comfortable

margin.

In the District One School

Board race, incumbents Mitchel

Vavich and Soleng Tom were

re- elected, while new -comer Laura

Almquist gained the highest

number of votes.

"Dynamite" Dwayne Evans

captures Olympic bronze

It doesn't take long to get

from South Mountain High School

in Phoenix to the 1976 Olympic

games in Montreal for a person

whose goal is to become the

world's fastest human.

In the fall 1976, the

University of Arizona was blessed

with that person, Dwayne Evans,

the Bronze Medal winner in the

200 meter dash in Montreal.

Evans started running track

for the I.G. Holmes Boys Club in

Phoenix when he was 13 "because

it was fun." At 13 he was the

fastest in his age group, and

from then on speed has been his

specialty. He began Varsity

track as a freshman, and he was

a four year letterman in high

school. Evans was an All -

American his junior year, and

was voted high school athlete of

the year by Track & Field News.

Evans ran for the Hornets

track club, a branch of the Boys'

Club, during his summers in

high school. According to Evans,

his coach, Richard Thompson,

guided him to reaching the

Olympics. Evans said Thompson

was his motivating force and his

father image, as well as his

coach. Thompson accompanied

Evans to Eugene, Oregon, for the

U.S. Olympic trials in June. He

placed second in the trials,

behind Millard Hampton of San

Jose, California, the eventual

winner of the silver medal, as one

of three runners in his event

that qualified for the U.S. team.

From the trials in Oregon,

Evans went directly to New York to

train prior to the Olympics.

After his training period, he

went with the U.S. team via a

police escort to Montreal.

Being at the Olympics was

"like a dream," said Evans. "It

was just like a big party, and

just like in a dream, everything

you wanted was right there."

"When I first started running

I never thought I'd be able to go

the Olympics, at least not this

soon. I was 13 during the '72

games and had just started

running," Evans said.

"In Montreal, the U.S. team

was free to come and go as they

pleased," Evans said. "You knew

what you were there for and you

had to judge what to do. In a

sense it was just like another

meet and you'd do the same you


always do, except this meet had a

big name," he described the

Olympics in the cool manner he's

known for.

Evans said his family taught

him to always have a goal. "I

applied that to athletics and then

to life." He spoke with wisdom

not characteristic of someone 18

years old.

He said he hopes to be in

Moscow for the 1980 games. "But

I've dealt with almost everything

most people want to do in track

and field. One of my goals is to

be the world's fastest human, but

if I don't pursue my goals now, it

would be easy for me to become

lazy."

Evans came to the University

of Arizona because it is close

to his home in Phoenix and

because he liked UA track

coach Willie Williams, who he

thought understood his problems.

At the UA, Evans said he

had trouble adjusting to

independent study. He found some

instructors prejudiced against

athletes, some favoring athletes,

and others completely democratic.

It is important to him to

graduate from college, to hold the

world record in the 200 meter race,

and to make the 1980 Olympic team.

He would also like to be the

world's fastest runner. In

talking with him, one gets the

impression that he will accomplish

whatever he sets out to do. He

even wears a T -shirt that says,

"Do it Dynamite Dwayne."

Evans works on his starts. 2 --In an exercise

designed by Coach Willie Williams,

Dwayne improves his arm drive and stride.

3 -- Dwayne reflects on his Olympic experience

as he chats with a DESERT staff interviewer.

4 --As Coach Williams points out the technique

of another sprinter, Dwayne stands

back and takes a well- deserved breather.

SWINE FLU

VACCINATIONS

October 13, 1976

The nation -wide swine flu

vaccination program was suspended

by eight states after the deaths

of three elderly persons who had

taken the vaccine were reported in

Pennsylvania. According to reports

from the Allegheny County

Coroner, all three died of heart

attacks within hours after receiving

the shots, but the cause of the heart

attacks was still unknown.

The two women and man who

died were all in their 70's and had

histories of heart problems, but

officials said their heart attacks

may have been caused by the

simple stress of receiving the special

flu innoculations.

Federal and local officials

stressed that there was no

definite link between the flu shots

and the deaths. Nonetheless, health

officials in Alaska, Illinois, Louisiana,

Maine, New Mexico, Texas,

Vermont and Wisconsin stopped the

vaccination programs in their

respective states. Along with the

above mentioned states, New York,

Michigan, and Utah halted the use

of vaccine from the lot used in

Pittsburgh, where those who died

were innoculated October 11.

There were no reports from any

location in the nation of deaths or

other illnesses that might be

attributed to the vaccine. There

were reports, however, of isolated

incidents where elderly people who

took the vaccine died after receiving

the shots.

EHRLICHMAN STARTS

PRISON TERM

October 28, 1976

John Ehrlichman, former

Nixon aide, was ordered to begin

his 20 month to eight year prison

sentence by U.S. District Judge

Gerhard Gesell.

Ehrlichman reported to the

federal prison in Safford, Arizona,

clean- shaven and in a quiet, somber

mood. He had lived in New Mexico,

writing novels and giving free

legal aid to Indians on the reservation.

He had become somewhat of

a recluse, no longer associating

with his old friends, becoming an

individual without an identity.

Ehrlichman had been free on

bond following his conviction of

violating the civil rights of Dr.

Lewis Fielding, Daniel Ellsberg's

psychiatrist. He began his sentence

October 28, and will not be

eligible for parole for two years.


SIG EPS' CANNON

EXPLODES

November 6, 1976

In a freak accident at the

end of the Wyoming football game,

a Civil War -era cannon fired by

members of Sigma Phi Epsilon exploded,

sending fragments into a

crowd of bystanders and injuring five

persons, two seriously.

Of those injured, Robert Hart

and Michael Yoemans suffered head

injuries and were taken to University

Hospital. Hart was reported

in serious condition,

suffering from a skull fracture

caused by flying fragments from

the explosion. Yoemans was reported

in fair condition after

receiving head injuries from

scraps of metal sent hurling

through the air after the explosion.

Three others struck with

fragments were treated at University

Hospital and released.

Eyewitness reports of the

incident indicated the cannon

blast signaling the end of the

game was louder than usual. One

theory as to the cause of the

blast suggested the possibility of

a cracked cannon barrel. This

combined with a faulty packing óf

gunpowder may have been the cause

of the explosion.

The Arizona Daily Star reported

the University of Arizona Campus

Police began an investigation

into the matter, with the help of

an outside agency with expertise

in Civil War -era cannons.

Dean of Students Robert Svob

said the tradition of firing the

cannon at U of A games would be

discontinued.

Members of the fraternity responsible

for firing the cannon

were shaken following the incident,

but were unable to determine the

reason for he explosion. A fraternity

spokesman said the cannon was

inspected this year and found to be

in excellent condition.

Medical discoveries lessen risks of

childbirth, pregnancy, contraception

The science of childbirth saw

major advances recently, making

childbirth easier and safer for

mother and child.

One specific dramatic advance

has been in the field of premature

babies. The survival rate for a

newborn weighing less than two and

one half pounds has more than

doubled in the last four years.

New techniques, drugs, and

machinery, as well as new attitudes

also have contributed to progress

in pre -natal care.

Fetal monitors can prevent

cases of brain damage caused when

the baby's oxygen is cut off

during labor and birth. When the

amniotic fluid in older, pregnant

women is analysed, chromosomal

abnormalities can be detected well

before birth. This has led doctors

to believe a woman's childbearing

years may extend into her 40's.

The infant mortality rate in

the U.S., 16 deaths per 1,000

live births, has been cut in half

by newborn intensive care units.

New techniques in the treatment

and detection of childbirth

problems are not necessary for

most pregnancies, but for older

women, or women with complicated

pregnancies, this new technology

means partial solutions to their

major obstetrical problems. Now

there is a dependable, safe test to

detect about 60 chromosomal and

metabolic disorders in the second

trimester of pregnancy. This allows

time for a safe abortion, if parents

choose that option in lieu of a

dangerous birth. This procedure,

amniocentesis, consists of

withdrawing a sample of the

amniotic fluid from around the

uterus. This is done by inserting a

long hollow needle through the

mother's abdomen into the uterus.

Researchers are able to determine if

the baby is suffering from any

number of disorders by examining

the chromosomes of fetal cells. Also,

the fluid and its cells yield vital

information about the fetus' sex,

lung capacity, and oxygen supply.

Another new apparatus, called a

quartz crystal, is utilized to measure

the progress of the fetus. A quartz

crystal is placed on the woman's

stomach and high frequency sound

waves are beamed toward the fetus.

The waves bounce back and a highly

detailed picture forms on an

oscilloscope screen. With this

technique, a physician can predict

complications in labor and birth.

A new drug is being used to

induce the baby's delivery when it

would be most convenient for the

doctor and the parents. Another

drug may be utilized to stop labor

that has begun prematurely.

Occurance of the fetal RH disease

has decreased in recent years,

thanks to a special vaccine

developed in 1968.

For the first time, doctors may be

telling pregnant women that they

expect their patients to gain as much

as 30 pounds. Previous theories

indicated a small weight gain would

prevent toxemia, a serious

complication in pregnancy, but they

have been disproved.

New attitudes are also causing

men and women to seek classes

preparing them for birth. In

particular, the Lamaze technique

teaches disciplined breathing

exercises to help a woman relax

during labor, thus reducing pain.

The Bradley method emphasizes

avoidance of drugs and encourages

women to concentrate on the

sensations of labor rather than the

pain. Both methods emphasize the

importance of fathers' presence

during delivery.

At the University of Arizona

Medical School, Dr. Milos Chvapil

conducted research on a new form

of birth control, which may very well

be the key to female contraception

in the future. This new device is a

diaphram -like sponge that can be

worn for several days to prevent

pregnancy. The program has

developed into international

testing, involving thousands of

volunteers and millions of dollars.

Research on this particular project

is in critical early stages, and little is

known about this prospective form

of birth control. It is anticipated that

several years of research must be

conducted before any significant

conclusions may be made.

YOUNG WOMEN'S CO.

For women who seek jobs traditionally

held by men, rejection

is a common experience. Two

women in Tucson have founded,

with the aid of a grant from the

federal Law Enforcement Assistance

Administration (LEAA) the Young

Women's Co., a free service which

provides on- the -job training, as

well as job placement for women.

Angela Atkinson and Jane Bruce

help to change attitudes about

working women, as well as

providing women workers with self

confidence, so that they might gain

new skills, and new job

opportunities.

The Young Women's Co. has

worked with 70 women ranging in

age from 14 to 18,15 of whom have

been placed in jobs. Many of those

who came to the Young Women's

Co. were referred there by the

courts, the schools, other agencies,

and by word of mouth. Some of the

women have been classified

incorrigible by the courts, while

others have been labled status

offenders.

According to Ms. Bruce, women

have been shuffled in and out of the

work force whenever they were

needed. World War If is a good

example. The basic philosophy of

the Young Women's Co. is to

encourage women to be a part of

the work force, even if they had left

to raise a family. It is important,

says Bruce, to keep in touch with

the working world, and not become

lost in the narrow nuclear family

unit.

Economic independence, too,

is an important aspect of the

working woman. Atkinson

commented that being self -

supporting gives a person a whole,

different view about her place in

life.

Broadening women's horizons

is an important part of this service.

Women, as well as men, find careers

that offer satisfaction.

Condemned slayer

pleads for death

Convicted murderer Gary Gilmore became a national

figure overnight following his plea for a swift execution.

Gilmore, 36, was convicted for the murder of Bennie

Bushnell, and received his death sentence in October,

1976. The jury set his penalty at death by hanging or

firing squad. Like the majority of those put to death in

Utah, Gilmore chose the latter. It was his wish to be

executed as quickly as possible so he would not have to

suffer a life behind bars. The condemned murderer said

that he was ready to atone in blood for the murders and

other countless crimes he had committed.

Gilmore's death wish was not granted easily. After

his conviction, attorneys for Gilmore ignored his request

and appealed the conviction, winning a stay of execution.

The attorneys were fired by Gilmore, and Dennis Boaz,

anon- practicing attorney, was hired. Boaz, a writer who

had not published, foresaw a book about the Gilmore

story, and accepted the case for a 50 -50 split of any

royalties from the book. Within two days Boaz and

Gilmore were back in court, asking for death without

further delay.

In a note written to the Utah court, Gilmore said,

"You're silly. I've been sentenced to die, I accept that.

Let's do it." A former lawyer for the defendant argued

that Gilmore's actions were tantamount to suicide, but

the court, in a 4 to 1 vote, decreed that they would allow

him to die.

An execution date of November 15 was scheduled, but

Governor Calvin Rampton ordered another stay of

execution, so that the Board of Pardons could review the

case. The delay infuriated Gilmore, and he, along with

his 20- year -old girlfriend, joined in a suicide pact. Both

swallowed enough seconal to send them to the hospital

in comas, but neither consumed enough of the drug to

insure death. In essence, Gilmore was successful in

postponing his own death.

Gilmore's affinity for death brought attention to the

bloody realities that had been forgotten. The revival of

the death penalty by the Supreme Court had reopened

debate on a question that had received little attention

since an execution in 1967. Some argued that the death

penalty was not a deterrent to Gilmore. Rather, it may

have invited him to kill. His bloody execution and a

macho death reported by the news media may have been

the recognition Gilmore savored.

Gilmore's mother also attempted to stop the execution,

but was overruled by the Supreme Court.


Bessie Gilmore of Milwaukie,

Oregon, said she opposes capital

punishment, and did not want her

son to die. She, with the help of

several attorneys, asked Supreme

Court Justice Byron White and Utah

state courts on December 2, to

postpone the execution of her son

Gilmore, on the other hand, who

said that death is better than a

life in prison, suggested that

persons trying to save his life

should "butt out."

The two attorneys attained by

Mrs. Gilmore (Anthony G.

Amsterdam, a Stanford law school

professor, and Salt Lake attorney

Richard Giaque) filed petitions in

the U.S. District Court asking for a

delay of execution. In a special

request to Justice White, Amsterdam

said, "The need for the stay is

obvious... Such stays are commonly

granted in death cases." The request

said that Gilmore's desire for a swift

execution must be weighed against

procedural safeguards provided by

the Constitution. White, who

represents the court in urgent

matters for the 10th U.S. Circuit

that includes Utah, referred the

matter to the whole court for a final

decision.

In the original court decision,

the justices granted a stay of

execution, but a subsequent

decision said the court would not

deny Gilmore's wish to die. Those

who voted with the minority

indicated that the Utah death

penalty must be found

constitutional before Gilmore could

be executed by the firing squad.

On January 17, he was.

Death is no answer

It is assumed that a civilized society is capable

of solving problems in a non -violent, rational way,

and certainly ending a human life is by no means

rational nor civil. Yet, in our society, capital

punishment is an accepted means of retribution against

those who have committed murder. A 1966 Gallup Poll

indicated a plurality of 47% were against capital

punishment, while a 1976 Gallup Poll found 65% of the

population favored the death sentence. It must be

noted, too, that serious crimes have increased greatly

during the past ten years while no executions have

taken place.

The question of capital punishment directly

affects few people's lives, but for the 423 convicts

awaiting their death, the future of capital punishment

is more than academic interest. Some say capital

punishment is a deterrent to crime, yet there are no

conclusive statistics that corroborate this claim.

Those who are against the death penalty argue it is a

cruel and unusual punishment, and it is presumptuous

for anyone to assume the right to end the life of a

human out of revenge.

Revenge is not a part of the rational, civil,

educated world, although it is evident amongst those

who support death as a form of punishment. Their

support of capital punishment seemingly stems from

the eye for an eye argument. This argument holds no

weight for those who read Jesus' words in the Bible,

finding that one should turn the other cheek when

confronted. Support of the death penalty in itself

is a contradiction. People, on the one hand, who

cannot tolerate murder, will, on the other hand,

support capital punishment as a means of legitimate

punishment. It is difficult to understand this

rationale. How can one violently oppose murder, but

support the death penalty? The result of both

actions is the same.

Obviously we cannot ignore murder, nor treat it

lightly, but ending a life is just as wrong for

punishment as it is for murder. Unfortunately, most

people feel that prisons are for punishment and revenge,

rather than for rehabilitation. Some murderers

are beyond rehabilitation, but must we turn our backs

on those who might be able to return to society as

productive citizens? By eliminating criminals via a

means of execution, it would seem as if society has

given up on these individuals as failures, never able

to contribute to the good of society. If we must turn

to capital punishment to solve our problems, we are

acting as neither rational nor civil human beings. We

are, acting, rather as animals with a vengeance.


The death penalty

must be retained

Since 1967, when the last execution took place in

Colorado, the crime rate has increased, and the number

of serious crimes and murder have risen 100 %. It

is for this reason the death penalty should be a form

of punishment utilized by our society. The mere fact

that violent crimes increased when no one was executed

is strong evidence that supports capital punishment

as a deterrence to capital crimes. If prisons

begin again to execute prisoners, then those who may

have planned to pull the trigger might give their

actions a second thought. If the presence of capital

punishment accomplishes this, then it is successful as

a deterrent and must be continued as the most severe

form of punishment our system has to offer.

Life terms are not sufficient. Most convicts sentenced

to life terms are paroled in a few years, releasing

them into society. We cannot, and should not

allow people guilty of capital crimes to have their

freedom. They have committed grave offenses, ones

that can be afforded no forgiveness. These enemies of

society must pay the price for snuffing out a life.

It is the only answer that guarantees the citizens of

society peace of mind. Innocent people should not be

required to tolerate those who have murdered, and yet

are free to go out again and end an innocent life.

Prisons are for punishment. Those who are responsible

individuals who commit wrongdoings against

property or other citizens must pay their dues to

society. And those who commit the ultimate crime of

murder should forfeit their life. It is the only way.

It should not seem as if we have given up on

these people. They have given up on themselves.

Anyone who no longer possesses self- respect

and commits a crime should be responsible for his

actions, and thus spend time in prison or be executed.

The use of capital punishment is a must in a

society that does not tolerate murder. The only

answer then is to execute those who have committed

capital crimes. Not only does this prove to be a deterrent

to crime, but it indicates that the state

takes a hard -line law and order stance; that no one

may end the life of another human being without

sooner or later having to forfeit his own life.

To insure law abiding citizens of a country safety

from violence and murder is the main thrust of

capital punishment. It is a deterrent to crime, it

rids the society of unwanted individuals, and provides

a life without constant fear of violence.

Young generation ends,

Jim accepts Purdue post

University of Arizona football

Coach Jim Young resigned his head

coaching position to accept the

head coaching post at Purdue

University. Young signed a five -

year contract estimated in the

neighborhood of $175,000.

According to Coach Young,

"Coming from the midwest, I've

always looked forward to the

challenge of coaching in the Big

Ten." An Ohio native, Young played

fullback for Ohio State in 1954 and

1955. Young was an assistant coach

to Bo Schembechler at Michigan

before coming to the University of

Arizona.

The Young Generation compiled

a 31 -13 record during its four years

with the Wildcats.

Athletic Director Dave Strack

said he was sorry to see Young go,

but that he understood the reasons

for Young's departure. "He is an

outstanding young man and coach,

and I believe Purdue has made a

fine selection."

As the season came to a close,

both Purdue and the University of

Illinois had shown interest in Jim

Young, and Dave Strack granted

,permission for both schools to

interview and negotiate with Young.

Some reports indicated that the

41 year -old mentor may have gone

to Purdue for sentimental reasons,

but security, too, played an

important role in Young's final

decision. Arizona law restricts state

employees to one -year contracts.

Moving to Purdue gained Young

only $2,500 annually, but a

guaranteed five years on his contract

with Purdue University.

Jim Young was successful in

developing a solid program at the

UA, taking a team that had gone

4 -7 in 1972, and engineering a turn-

around -an 8 -3 season and a share of

the WAC Crown with rival Arizona

State. His teams won 18 games in the

two years to follow before falling to

a 5 -6 record this past season.

One observer said although

Young had a successful program, he

was working with talent recruited

by his predecessor, Bob Weber. The

talents of "T" Bell, Bruce Hill,

Scott Piper, Keith Hartwig, and Lee

Pistor were all brought to the UA

by Weber. Young's fourth season

team was developed by his

recruiting, and they managed only a

5 -6 record. This might also be

blamed on numerous injuries to key

personnel.

Coach Young fills the gap created

by the firing of Alex Agase on the

22nd of November. (See next page

for the story on the man who will

take the place of Jim Young: former

University of Cinncinatti coach,

Tony Mason).


Cincinnati's Tony Mason

to coach Cat football

Following the resignation of

Jim Young, Athletic Director Dave

Strack began his quest for a replacement

for Coach Young. Two

top contenders for the job were

publicized by the local media, but

as things turned out, neither UCLA

Assistant Coach Dick Tomey nor UA

Assistant Coach John Mackovic

were hired by Strack.

Instead, Strack went to the

University of Cinncinatti to lure

Tony Mason, a former assistant at

the University of Michigan, to head

up the football program for the

Wildcats. Mason was also one of

the top prospects for the Arizona

post four years ago following the

resignation of Bob Weber.

The announcement that Mason

would take over at the helm came

during the halftime intermission at

the Wildcat basketball game with

the University of Northwestern.

As the head coach at Cinncinatti,

Mason took a Bearcat grid program

on the brink of collapse and made it

into one that was on the verge of

national attention. Mason's Bearcats

defeated the ASU Sun Devils this

season in Tempe, which is also a

plus in his favor.

The former Cinncinatti coach

brought with him most of his staff

from the U of C. He referred to his

Assistant Coaches as Associate

Coaches, and describes them as

"one of the finest staff you'll ever

want to meet."

The Associate Coaches that

Mason has designated include: Bob

Shaw, linebackers; Wayne Jones,

quarterbacks and wide receivers;

Tony Yelovich, offensive line and

tight ends; Bob Valesente, defensive

backs; and Mike Gottfried, offensive

backs. A final Associate Coach has

yet to be named. Willie Peete, a

UA holdover, has been retained

by Coach Mason.

Renovation of Coop features Mexican

Response to a marketing

questionaire indicated that students

wanted more intimate dining

space, fast service, and an improved

Mexican food menu. In

accordance with these wishes, the

Student Union renovated a portion

of the Coop, providing Mexican

food and a patio dining area in

the arcade.

Student Union Director Bill

Varney said, "Most students are

loners and fast eaters. We feel

that the SU should meet the needs

of the students."

"Instead of an interior decorator,

a landscape architect from

the University of Arizona Physical

Resources Planning Department was

"assigned to the project, which

explains why numerous large plants

are involved," said Varney. A fountain

with a mirror -finish ceiling

in spotlight, an outdoor, shaded

patio, popular natural rustic wood

furniture, and Spanish tile are

other unique aspects of the completed

cafeteria which seats 240.

From dream to reality, it has

been a two -year project, including

the planning. The actual building

began November 26, and the construction

ended January 28, a

period when the mass of human

traffic was cut down due to finals

and semester break.

Of the eight construction

companies that submitted bids,

Hilro was the lowest bidder.

Funds for the project came

from the SU reserves. The estimated

cost was $225,000. The Coop has

not been remolded since 1951.

When asked if the construction

was an interference, Varney said,

"Yes, not only did we have to shut

down the Coop, but those guys

hammering made so much noise,

trying to have a meeting on the

main floor was impossible."

Varney showed some evidence

of pride while he talked about the

cafeteria remolding. On several

occasions he inspected the

construction, taking note of its

progress. He felt that students

reactions to the building would be

excellent.

"I love it! I can't wait! I think it

will be beautiful," was the response

of information booth worker Jane

Bohner. According to Jane, the

noise did not bother her in the least

since she knew what the pounding

was about.

"I'm glad to see it. Improving

the food service is great," said a

passing student. "It's what students

around here really want. It's good to

see that the SU does listen to the

student."

The new cafeteria opened on

Monday, February 7, and was enthusiastically

received.

"I'm really impressed with the

atmosphere," commented one

student. "It's a lot nicer than your

usual Student Union food service.

"It's the kind of place I'll

be proud to show my friends."

into a dining area with atmosphere.

2-- During construction, however, students

had to find somewhere else to eat. 3--Construction

workers were able to get more done

when the Student Union closed for Christmas

break and the passers -by dwindled in

number: 4 -- Inside, walls were knocked down

during the process.

S. V .T UNION

QUAKE JOLTS TURKEY

November 24, 1976

On a wintery day in the remote

Turkish province of Van, a

severe earthquake jolted 100 farming

villages, killing over 6000

people.

The epicenter of the quake

was between Lake Van and Mount

Ararat (see map), the place where

the Bible says Noah's Ark came to

rest. The 14- second quake registered

7.6 on the Richter Scale, and

shock waves were felt in Soviet

Armenia and Iran.

Since Turkey lies on the

Anatolian Fault, earthquakes are

quite common, however, freezing

winter weather made rescue efforts

less successful than usual. About

80 villages were destroyed, while

others were severely damaged.

In the town of Caldiran, 1000

of the 2500 inhabitants were

killed. Many of those who lost

their lives were women and children

who stayed at home while the men

tended their flocks and fields.

RICHARD DALEY DIES

December 20, 1976

Richard Daley, the last major

city political boss, died of a

heart attack in his doctor's

office. The 74- year -old Chicago

Democratic party machine kingpin

had complained of chest pains

earlier in the day as he dedicated

a gymnasium on the South Side. 45

minutes later he was dead.

According to Father Eugene

Kennedy of Loyola University,

"Death had to sneak up on Dick

Daley. It could never have beaten

him in a fair fight."

A political scrapper, Daley

despised the word boss. He was a

master of the wakes and weddings

brand of ethnic politics, and his

methods as a tough and able admin-


istrator always drew billions in

Federal, state and private monies

for roads, rail lines, airline

terminals, and skyscrapers that

altered the appearance of the

Chicago skyline. Some had been so

bold as to suggest that some money

had stuck to some of Daley's politic -

cal allies, but Daley had never been

caught in a scandal. "I've never

betrayed the public trust," said

Daley, "or they would have had me

ten years ago."

Daley's success may be attributed

to his abundance of political

horse sense. In 1936 he was elected

to his first political office,

state representative. Later, as

Mayor of Chicago and Democratic

Party Chairman of Cook County,

Daley was a national power broker

during every four years with a

national Presidential election.

CARTER PICKS VANCE

The 59 year -old Vance, a crisis -

wise lawyer and diplomat, is a well -

bred, Yale- educated, Washington

insider whose credentials will reassure

the public that Carter has

chosen well -qualified people to

serve in government. One person

described Vance as "the epitome

of the Eastern Establishment."

During an interview, Carter

probed to see if Vance had the

nerve to disagree with him, and

whether or not he had the confidence

to suggest strong men for

foreign affairs posts. Vance passed

on both counts, ending any doubts

Carter may have had.

SMOKEY THE BEAR DIES

November 20, 1976

A national symbol for 25

years, Smokey the Bear passed away

while staying at the Washington

National Zoo. The 26 year -old bear

was rescued from a forest fire in

his home state of New Mexico in

1951, and brought to the nation's

capital where he posed for the

long running poster war against

forest fires. A national hero,

Smokey reached thousands of

Americans via posters, television

commercials, and radio public

service announcements by saying,

"Remember, only you can prevent

forest fires." Smokey's body was

returned to New Mexico to what is

now the Smokey the Bear National

Forest. Smokey is survived by his

wife and six year -old son.

personality from the Tonight Show,

and Victoria Valentine, 30, were

married during 1976. It was the

second marriage for McMahon, and

the first for Miss Valentine. The

two met in 1974 while she was a VIP

hostess at the Houston airport.

McMahon had been divorced since

early 1976 following a 30 -year

marriage that had been on the rocks

since 1972 when he left his former

wife.

In another failing marriage the

past year, Cincinnati Reds baseball

great Johnny Bench and his wife

Vickie Chesser were divorced after

a marriage which began in February,

1975. Mrs. Bench was quoted as

saying that Johnny is very old -

fashioned in many ways.

Former FBI kingpin Edgar J.

Hoover will be the subject of a

motion picture filmed this year.

The film, "The Secret American,"

-Fox from an unfinished biography

written by Ladislas Farago. Producer

Frank Yablans picked writer Gore

Vidal (Burr, 1876) to prepare the

screenplay. The film, according to

studio personnel, will be released in

1978.

It was thought that man's earliest

ancestors went back some 500,000

years. Yet, after a series of

anthropological discoveries in

Kenya and Ethiopia, it was

determined that man's history may

date back to more than three million

years ago. 150 bones were found at

a site at Ethiopia's Afar Valley from

a group of people, man -like

individuals, who are believed to

have lived as a family or troop. Many

anthropologists dismissed the fact

that the find may be a freak, and the

new discoveries provide strong

evidence to support the theory of

evolution.

74 year -old Carlo Gambino,

reputed to be the boss of bosses

in the world of organized crime,

died from a stroke suffered

while staying in his Long Island

home on October 15, 1976. In more

than 50 years in the rackets, the

Sicilian -born godfather served

only 22 months in prison for operating

a still in Philadelphia

during the depression.

In the World Series, Cincinnati

continued their domination of the

baseball world by downing the New

York Yankees in a four -game series

sweep. Catcher Johnny Bench came

alive for the Reds during the

series and was selected the Most

Valuable Player.

In a year when both Presidential

candidates were evangelical

Christians, a Gallup Poll revealed

that 33% of the American public

say they are "Born Again" Christians

or have had significant religious

experiences. This represents an

important religious trend in the

United States which has given rise

to the emergence of evangelists as

respected and influential people.

For the first time in television

history, the American Broadcasting

Company came out on top in the

battle for the top prime time Nielson

ratings. "ROOTS," the saga of Alex

Haley's search for his African

ancestors, was aired by ABC for eight

nights in January, and broke every

existing record by capturing nearly

75% of the total viewing market.

The re- emergence of the Disco

became one of the biggest entertainment

phenomena in the 1970's.

Along with this re- emergence came

a renewed interest in dancing and

touching at the same time, as well

as increased interest in dressy

clothes, the disco deejay and a

new sound that has had a profound

influence on the music industry.

Even a wild song titled "Disco

Duck" made an impact with teens.


President Ford signed a bill,

The Metric Conversion Act, which

places the United States on a ten -

year schedule to change from our

present system of weights and

measures to the International

System of Units. Presently, the

U.S. is the only major nation in

the world which does not utilize

the metric system. From this

time onward, we shall be measuring

gas by liters rather than gallons

(one liter is just slightly

larger than a quart), yards will

become meters, miles will become

kilometers, and acres will become

hectares. Some argue that the

change from our system to the metric

will be expensive, and is

generally unnecessary. It may be

a difficult change for Americans

to make, but once the change has

been made, measuring will without

a doubt, become easier.

1975

on the

United

was the year for attempts

life of the President of the

States. In 1976 those who

made attempts remained in the

custody of the State of California.

Lynette (Squeaky) Fromme spent the

past year at the San Diego Metropolitan

Correctional Center, a

modern facility overlooking the

San Diego Bay. Her life consists

of scrubbing and waxing prison

floors at 50 cents an hour and

writing letters, all of which

are screened and censored by prison

officials. She is described

by other inmates as quiet and

withdrawn.

The other attempted killer,

Sara Jane Moore, has established

herself as a joiner and activist

in confinement. She is a prisoner

at the Terminal Island Federal

Correctional Institute in Los

Angeles. Mrs. Moore is a member

of the prison cook's crew.

The cost of crude oil increased

again the past year, with the

United States bowing to its dependence

on the importation of oil

from foreign nations. Members of

OPEC, the major petroleum

exporters of the world, gathered in

December, 1976 to set prices for the

next few years. A majority of the

Arab nations voted to increase the

price of crude oil 15 to 20 per

cent. Saudi Arabia, however, designated

that their prices would

climb only 5 percent.

o

Former CBS correspondent

Daniel Schorr was appointed as a

Regents Professor of Journalism

at the University of California at

Berkeley. Schorr announced that he

would accept the position the day

following his resignation from his

post at CBS. Schorr had been under

investigation by the House Ethics

Committee for the publication of

classified documents purported to

be essential for national security.

The Ethics Committee dropped

charges against Schorr after he

would not divulge his source, insisting

it would be a violation

of the Bill of Rights, which

guarantees freedom of the press.

Former Vice President Hubert

Humphrey underwent surgery this

past year for what was considered

a pre- cancerous condition in his

bladder. The Minnesota Senator had

been taking anti -cancer drugs since

1968 when the cancer was first discovered.

In a successful surgery

performed at Bethesda Naval Hospital,

Humphrey's bladder was

removed and replaced by a plastic

baggie, which is emptied every

three hours.

Barbara Walters, formerly of

the Today Show seen on NBC,

became the first women

anchorperson in television news

history as she jumped networks to

work along side Harry Reasoner of

ABC for a one million dollar

salary. Not only is Ms. Walters the

first women broadcaster to head up

the evening news, she is also the

highest paid newsperson in the

business.

NBC radio and television

celebrated its 50th anniversary

this year. In a series of programs

titled "The First Fabulous 50 ", NBC

dug deeply into their vaults to air

programs featuring the great stars

of the past and present in both

radio and television. NBC was the

first broadcasting network to be

organized back in 1926. Some of the

stars included Jack Benny, Mary

Livingstone, Joe Penner, Fred Allen,

Jimmy Durante, Amos 'n' Andy,

Rudy Vallee, and Fibber McGee.

Watergate heroes from the

Washington Post, Woodward and

Bernstein, published another book

related to the Watergate cover -up

and eventual resignation of

President Richard Nixon. "The

Final Days" was published by Simon

and Schuster, and is a work of 456

pages that covers the time period

from August 30, 1973 to August 9,

1974. For the most part, the book

contained material previously unreported

by the media. The first

portion of the book describes the

efforts of Nixon and his close aides

to keep the President in office no

matter what the cost. The last 200

pages are a close -up look at Nixon

prior to the resignation.

Carter victory named top news story

of the year in student -faculty poll

In a Desert survey taken at

the end of 1976, 100 students and

faculty members were asked to

name their choices for the top news

stories of the year.

An overwhelming 38% named

Jimmy Carter's election to the

United States Presidency, but from

there on the answers splintered

into a large selection of news

events.

Many people were unable to

think of anything at all. Ten

percent of those polled, even after

prolonged consideration, could

answer only, "Sorry, I really can't

think of anything."

The top five stories of 1976

as chosen in the poll were:

1. The election of JIMMY

CARTER, virtually unknown

ex- governor of Georgia, to

the highest office in the

nation, and the defeat of

incumbent President Gerald

R. Ford.

2. The BICENTENNIAL events

celebrating America's 200th

birthday, both at home and

abroad.

3. A three -way split -

The UA JOINING PAC -8,

giving Arizona's former WAC

team tougher competition

than before.

The death of CHAIRMAN

MAO and the ensuing fight

for high positions among

Chinese officials.

The VIKING LANDING on

Mars in a research visit

which failed to confirm the

existence of life there.

4. Another three -way split -

The opening of the NEW UNI-

VERSITY LIBRARY (in 1977).

The WATER RATE HIKE and

the recall election of those

City Council members who

passed the unpopular

measure.

The death sentence given

to GARY GILMORE and the

delayed execution he was

ready to accept.

5. Six choices for fifth -

The race struggles in

RHODESIA.

The murder of Phoenix

journalist DON BOLLES in a

gangland -style bombing.

The SWINE FLU epidemic

and vaccinations.

The VETO OF FUNDS FOR

ASA taken from the profits

of the ASUA- sponsored Eagles

concert.

The tension in the

MIDDLE EAST.

HENRY KISSINGER stepping

down from his position as

Secretary of State.

The rest of the people polled

gave a multitude of answers,

which included the following:

Local

The Arizona Board of

Regents VETOING LIQUOR

on campus.

The rejection of Proposition

200, which would have

required additional safety

measures on NUCLEAR

POWER plants built in

Arizona.

The UA BASEBALL TEAM

playing in the College World

series of 1976.

The defeat of incumbent

COUNTY SUPERVISOR Ron

Asta, a strong advocate of

controlled growth in the

Tucson area, by former

school board member Katie

Dusenberry.

National

The Supreme Court

decision to allow Karen Ann

Quinlan the RIGHT TO DIE.

The ELIZABETH RAY -

Wayne Hays scandal, in which

the Capitol Hill Congressman

allegedly hired a secretary

who couldn't type.

The trial and conviction

of PATRICIA HEARST.

The failure of the House

JUDICIARY COMMITTEE to

prosecute high- ranking

officials.

International

The CHINESE NUCLEAR

EXPLOSIONS which caused

fallout across the world.

The devaluation of the

MEXICAN PESO and the upheaval

in the country's

economy.

The announcement by

OPEC that oil prices would be

increased by 15 %.

The LOCKHEED CORPOR-

ATION's bribing of Japanese

officials.


Charles Dickens' words

"It was the best of times,

it was the worst of times,"

are appropriate in describing

the events that took

place during 1976. NEWS-

WEEK eulogized the past year

in this fashion: For spaceship

Earth, it was a year of

passage from the age of Mao

to the era of Jimmy -a time

of retrospection and wrenching

change.

Americans in 1976 relived

the history of their

nation's 200 years by celebrating

the Bicentennial

festivities that seemed to

linger on endlessly. And

from the setting of the past

we looked with amazement at

photographs from the first

Viking lander to settle on

the red desert floor of the

planet Mars.

On the less than positive

side of the news, 1976

may be remembered as the

year of scandal. Woodward

and Bernstein's book, THE

FINAL DAYS, brought the

Watergate and Richard Nixon

story to the public in graphic

detail, while Elizabeth

Ray kissed and told of her

relationship with Congressman

Wayne Hays, who subsequently

lost his seat in

the House. The governments

of Tokyo and Rome were

shaken with the furor of the

Lockheed bribe scandal, and

the questionable generosity

of Korea's Tongsun Park and

other businessmen from Seoul

to Congressmen decreased

the credibility of national

leaders.

Terrorism, too, played

a grisly, but important part

in the happenings of 1976.

A bombing in New York's La

Guardia Airport claimed the

lives of eleven people, and

the manhunt for those responsible

still continues.

In Dublin, British Ambassador

Christopher T.E. Ewart-

Biggs was killed when his

automobile was bombed,

while a Washington, D.C.

bombing ended the life of a

Chilean exile Orlando Letelier.

A TWA jetliner, in one of

the first domestic skyjackings

since 1973, was abscounded

by a group of Croation

nationalists during a flight

from New York to Tucson.

In international events,

a military junta ousted

Argentina's Isabel Peron,

and Mexico's Jose Portillo

began his term as President,

succeeding Luis Echeverria.

China's Mao Tse Tung died,

insuring a massive shuffle

for power in the world's

largest nation.

Elsewhere in the world,

Cubans helped Societ- backed

troops win a war in Angola

and a peoples court convicted

13 western mercenaries,

several of which were executed.

The Middle East fell

quiet, but threats of a reoccurance

of violence were

a part of daily life in Lebanon.

South Africa, too,

found peace an exception

rather than the rule, as

blacks sought majority rule.

In other areas of international

news, North

Koreans murdered two U.S.

soldiers while trimming

trees in the DMZ, and Isreali

commandos freed 104 hostages

held captive at an Entebbe,

Uganda, Airport. A

motion picture recreation of

the event was well- received

by President Idi Amin, despite

the fact that Amin's army was

defeated during the raid.

Amin was quoted as saying

that he approved of the way

he was portrayed.

At home, Georgia Governor

Jimmy Carter survived

his Playboy interview, and

was elected President. All

of Carter's appointees to

Cabinet posts were well -

received with the exception

of Georgia Attorney Griffin

Bell, who was accused of

racist policies. Bell's

confirmation by the Senate

remained doubtful.

In sports, Nadia Coma -

neci and Bruce Jenner captured

the limelight at the

summer Olympic games,

while downhill racer Fraz

Klammer thrilled the world in

his breath -taking jaunt down

an Innsbruck mountain.

Former men's tennis

champion, Renee Richards,

a transsexual, made her

way in women's tournament

tennis, while Detroit's

Mark "The Bird" Fidrych

talked to the baseball and

won 19 games in his rookie

season.

All in all, 1976 was a

year of good and bad, but

the memories should be

good.

We started practicing a week

before school started -- learning

songs, rehearsing the entrances

and exits, making decorations and

name tags for each party and putting

together groups to perform skits,

serve food and greet the rushees.

None of the preparation made

me ready to handle the strain. By

the end of the week I was going

hoarse from all the yelling and

singing. And I'm not the kind of

...from the inside

person who smiles all the time.

Some of the girls were able to

smile for six days straight without

pulling a muscle. I wasn't one of

them.

I remember a lot of us, and

even some of the rushees, asking

each other how we could judge a

girl when all she showed us was a

nice facade. The answer we came

up with was, you can't. It's hard

to tell what they're really like.

RVSII 1gm

It was heartbreaking when you

got attached to a particular girl

and she wasn't invited back.

know it has to be that done way,

but it's really a put -on. I wish

there were another way to do it.

The whole thing is a big emotional

upheaval, and when it climaxes you

can't believe it's over.

Exciting? Yes, it is. But

wish I didn't ever have to go

through it again.


Sorority rush. It brings

flashes of old -style tradition to

my mind. Times have changed and

the Greek system claims it has

changed, but after experiencing

their process of selecting members,

I wonder how true that claim is.

A million questions run

through my mind as I stand in front

of my first sorority house on the

first night of rush. "Will I match

up to sorority standards ?" "Will

I meet my mother's expectations ?"

And what about me -what do I want

and what am I doing here?

Extreme nervousness is the

dominant feeling among the

rushees as we wait outside the

house. We're all dressed in our

nicest clothes, wearing a maximum

amount of makeup and our best

smiles. Little do we know that those

same smiles will remain on our faces

for six consecutive nights.

The sorority members rush out

of their respective houses at five

o'clock sharp and rush officially

begins. They are singing at top

lung capacity, clapping their hands

and smiling smiles wider than

thought people were capable of.

For those of us who are unprepared,

their enthusiasm is a little bit

frightening.

After the singing stops, the

girls greet us individually and

pass us mechanically from house

president to housemother and onto

the sorority sisters. We're seated

in the house by a mysterious

method that somehow distributes

rushees and members equally in the

various lounges, and the flow of

questions begins.

"What's your name ?" "Where

are you from ?" (My name and home

town are printed on my nametag.)

"What are you majoring in ?" "Do

you like it here; it's really hot,

isn't it ?" Right after that comes

the inevitable: "Well, it was

really nice talking to you; now

I'm going to give you a chance to

meet some of the other girls in

the house." And presto, I'm

sitting in front of a brand new

smile.

The process continues in all

thirteen houses during the next

two nights. Then come the cuts,

the arbitrary cuts.

The next two nights are drawn

out into longer visits that include

skits and lots more lemonade. Then

more cuts. This time the cuts

bring tears to my eyes. I continue

with rush out of curiosity,

wondering, "What do these other

girls have that I don't have ?"

Preference night comes and

the choices are limited to two

houses. At least now they know my

major and hometown. I hope we

can have some semblance of a conversation.

But instead it becomes

increasingly harder to be relaxed,

knowing that I am being judged.

Pressure mounts on both sides.

I've gotten a tour of the

houses, a general idea of their

images, and what is required of

their pledges. But all I can think

is "What's the point ?"

On Sunday, the invitations

come back and the final bids are

signed. in the auditorium there

are lots of tears, friends hugging,.

girls who think their world has

come to an end, and girls who

believe that all doors have suddenly

swung open for them.

I take my envelope and walk

away, thinking it's not worth

rejoicing or crying over either

house I bid on. I go for a drive

and try to think that yes, there

are advantages in the system for

some people. For me it brought

uneasiness and humiliation. It

was an experience- I'll chalk it

up as a learning experience.

Well, it's over, and I'm still

myself. I throw the unopened

envelope out my car window on the

way up Mt. Lemmon highway.

It's good my evening isn't planned

by a sorority activity. I need the

time to think.

Initiation ...

The final becoming

Actually part of the whole,

not a pledge, not a peon.

A week of strange dark tests,

togetherness during hurt, fun, laughter.

The end of the beginning,

the end of the means -initiation.

Friday, thank God.

Let's celebrate.

Let's get together

with another house.

Sounds good!

Maybe a keg ... Sounds good.

Well, here they are. Here we are.

Have I ever met you before?

You know who I saw the other day?

Can I get you another glass?

Let's get out of the house.

Roller skating. Pizza parties.

Boony parties. Country- swing.

You're pretty good at this!

What are you doing Saturday?

There you are!

Can I get you another glass?

Thank God, it's Friday.

Sharing yourself. Giving time.

Giving money. Giving love

A good time is up to the guests,

Enough to drink, good music.

Country swing, rock, or just okay.

Plenty of conversation area.

It's a chance (or challenge)

for the house to prove originality,

as her girls, who participate in

campus clubs ranging from skydiving

The Tri -Delts had an active

year with their philanthropic and

social projects. At Halloween

they serenaded a nursing home; at

Christmas they joined a fraternity

in holding a party for orphaned

children. In October, they hosted

a reception for the TriPsi (mothers

of Tri- Delts) International Convention,

and they still had time to

enjoy a winter formal at Skyline

and a Jack -o- Lantern Jamboree.

Alpha Epsilon Pi

The men of Alpha Epsilon Pi

have a great diversity of interests.

They live with a schedule of activities

that brings the intellectual,

physical, and social aspects

of life into a neat balance. Majors

range from business to geology

to photography.

The men of Alpha Epsilon Pi

are unified. Their spirit of

brotherhood is what allows men of

such diverse interests to cooperate

in an atmosphere of mutual

helpfulness in their interaction

with each other. It is the driving

force behind such weekend

activities as the Winter Formal,

the Spring Shipwreck Party and,

of course, intramural sports. It

is what binds them so strongly to

each other.

Phi Delta Theta

Fraternity life is more than

panty raids and serenading the sorority

houses, and the Phi Delta

Thetas, a familiar institution at

the UA, have changed with the

times. The Phi Delts are proud of

the diversified interests of their

members, from government to intramural

sports. They enjoyed an active

year between activities on campus

and formals, rush, and Greek

Week, held in the spring.

Although Phi Delta Theta doesn't

have a large enrollment, the feeling

of closeness between members

more than makes up for having a

large number of people always

around.

The "old pueblo" at 1801 E.

1st St. is the Tucson home of Phi

Gamma Delta. We had 100 members

for the 1976 -77 school year and a

really crammed calendar. During

the year we celebrated our Annual

Western Party in September followed

by our Las Vegas Night in November.

All throughout the football

season we had bands and activity at

the house following each home game.

Then to end the fall semester, the

Black Diamond Christmas formal took

place.

In the spring our "purple

garter" celebration took place

with évents that had to be seen

to be enjoyed. Intramurals

offered a diversion from study.

A couple parties and bands later

the house was turned into an

island at the campus -known party,

the Fiji Islander.

There is always plenty to do

and lots of friendly people. If you

have wondered what sits inside

1801 E. 1st, come by and see.

Pi Kappa Alpha

e.

.....- Tm

The Pike House views itself

an an elite organization dedicated

to higher achievement. Each of

its members is an individual, each

striving toward a set goal or

ambition. They are diversified in

thought, but when unified under

the spirit that is Pi Kappa Alpha,

they become the strongest fraternity

at the University of Arizona.

Pike life is social supremacy,

and it has often been said that

they truly know how to party.

They have been consistent leaders

in intramural sports, and are

more involved with the community

than the rest combined.

Sophisticated achievers that

will stop at nothing to be number

one, the brotherhood is a rock of

tradition. In fact the one thing

that each of its members will say

means the most to them is the Pike

pride, and you feel it the second

you step in the house.

gina nu

In this bicentennial year,

Sigma Nu Fraternity celebrated 58

years on Arizona's campus. Sigma

Nu has played a key role in school

activities throughout the years.

An important figure for both

the University of Arizona and Sigma

Nu was James Fred McKale, Arizona's

athletic director and Sigma

Nu's founder. UA recently honored

Coach McKale with the dedication

of McKale Center. Bear Down Gym

is dedicated to another highly

honored Sigma Nu, John Salmon.

Today Sigma Nu continues to

"bear down." As well as being on

top in intramurals, Sigma Nu's are

involved in many of Arizona's

honoraries. When Sigma Nu's take

time off from the books, they know

how to relax with theme parties

like Beachcomber, Sadie Hawkins,

Bon Voyage and the White Rose

Formal.

Sigma Phi Epsilon always

plays an active part in campus

organizations and activities.

There are over fifty Sig Eps in

campus honoraries and an equal

number involved in a highly competitive

intramurals program. Sig Ep

is a strong competitor in every

intramural event.

Arizona Beta chapter of

Sig Ep has never been afraid to

try something new. This year we

had a TG with Delta Chi and Coronado

Dorm. We also had a gettogether

with Kaibab Dorm and the

Golden Hearts, our little sisters

auxiliary, in an effort to promote

better campus relations.

Sig Ep always places strong

emphasis on all aspects of college

life. Scholarship, social activities

and just having a good time

are all important to the brothers

of Sigma Phi Epsilon.

proud to own their own house and

be almost totally independent

of University control.

Associated Students University of Arizona

The 1976 -77 year was an

active one for the Associated

Students of the University of

Arizona. Under President Pat

Mitchell, ASUA pressed for many

goals, the most important one

being that of student control

over student fees.

Many in ASUA felt that the

association's full potential would

not be realized until it assumed

control of its own budget. One

example of the administrative

sanctions placed on Associated

Students was that in the longstanding

suit over the bookstore,

the University refused to allow

ASUA to pay its own lawyer.

Because of this, Arizona Students

Action Corporation (ASAC) was

formed to function as a separate

entity from the Associated

Students and the University. It

provided students with private

funds not under the control of

the administration, to use

in sponsoring student services and

payment of a lawyer.

Figuring prominently in

many actions of ASUA this year

was the Arizona Student's

Association (ASA). ASA

represents all three state

universities and is chaired by

ASUA President Pat Mitchell.

Working directly with the

Board of Regents on such issues

as liquor on campus and student

fee control, ASA brought new

strength to student demands.

The ASA -ASUA committee also

sponsored a voter registration

drive which saw nearly 3000

new voters registered on campus.

Concert Productions and

Speakers Board under the super-

vision of Administrative Vice -

President Mark Webb, brought a

wide variety of events to campus.

Concerts, under chairman Bruce

Cohen, booked names like Cheech

& Chong, the Eagles and Herbie

Mann. Speakers Board, under

chairman Jeff Gettleman, had

programs ranging from Dick

Gregory to Daniel Moynihan.

The Appropriations Board,

chaired by Executive Vice -

President Mike Ceballos, took

an active role in exercising its

legislative powers. Board

members Don Beach, Tim Coker,

Ed Errante, Carla Blackwell, Doug

Ehrenkranz, Shelly Farber, Doug

Linkhart and Pete Woods worked

directly with many of the ASUA

committees and organizations

funded by the board to make this

year a productive one.

As a student service, LINK

maintains relationships with a

number of community agencies,

most of whom work with the poor

populations. The areas in which

student volunteers work include

recreation, rehabilitation, social

development, public services and

education.

LINK works as a liaison

between the University, students,

The Arizona Daily Wildcat had

the sixth largest circulation of

dailies in the state during

1976 -77.

An increase in advertising

revenue boosted the circulation

from 20,000 to 22,000 over last

year, and the average number of

pages per issue increased from

17 to 20.

Seven editors, twelve

advertising salesmen, and a staff

of 22 persons were involved in

the newspaper's production. The

Wildcat's eight reporters

covered beats such as campus

police, the administration, the

medical college, campus research,

and the State Legislature. The

editorial staff concentrated on

presenting an effective balance

between campus and city events,

and used Associated Press stories

to give an overview of important

national and international affairs.

the home football games. This

year Traditions created the

Bear Down Committee which coordinated

campus leaders to

promote spirit all over campus.

Selections are held in the spring

of each year and membership is

based on campus activity and

Muscles. They measure a man's

strength to one extent. They can

be developed, trained and strained,

and they can obey or refuse to obey

depending on the request.

Weightlifting is enjoying a

boom in popularity as a recreational

sport. This is nowhere more

evident than in the McKale Center

weightroom, which is packed every

day of the week. To accomodate

this surge in interest and channel

it in a way which will benefit

weightlifting enthusiasts, the

weightlifting club was formed.

The club is set up for the

average person interested in

weightlifting for physical fitness

but it also has many activities

for competitive powerlifters.

Club president Dave Dietz and

executive officers Bill Rhodes and

Rick Fisher, with the assistance of

Associated Professor Isiah Nucleus,

worked hard to improve the general

weightroom facility and are now

concentrating on increasing the

number of competitive events for

club members.

Special thanks goes to Arnold

Schwartznegger for inspiration.

"Best distance runners ever

recruited to Arizona." was the

statement Coach Dave Murray made

about the cross country teams this

year. Both men's and women's cross

country ranked in the top twenty

and were said to have been "much

better than past teams." Coaches

Peggy Anderson and Murray

worked these athletes hard to make

the Arizona team one of the best.

Competing against teams like

Texas El Paso and NCAA Champs in

the same conference made it tough

for these runners to qualify for the

nationals, but though the tough

competitors and injuries may have

held them back, they became

Arizona winners in the long run.

The Arizona golf teams looked

good this year. Both men's and

women's golf have an excellent record

behind them. Ranked tenth

in the nation for the women's golf,

the Arizona team plans to hold and

beat their title this year. Both

teams, finishing fourth and fifth

at the first tournament, came back

with the scent of victory when

over 120 players from opposing

teams participated in the first

event.

Both teams consisted of many

returning players, but with only

two seniors on each team to hold

back future victories. Coaches

John Gibson and JoAnn Lusk and

captains Dan Pohl and Eve Patterson

helped make the team a successful

one.

Bouncing back from a season plagued with injuries

and a respectable 10 -5 record, the Arizona men's tennis

team expects to improve its record. This year the team

is led by returning players Warren Eber and Woody Supple

who compiled an 18 -3 doubles record which proved

to be one of the best in the country last year. Other outstanding

returnees include Jim Edwards, Hokan Peterson

and Randall Clark.

According to Coach Bill Murphy, the results of

early season fall tournaments indicated that the team

would be strong for the spring season. The addition

of promising freshmen Tim Lane, Matt Smith and Hale

Maber coupled with the talents of returning players

gave the. Arizona team good depth throughout the

season.

The Arizona women's tennis team finished fourth

in their conference last year and aimed for

second place this year. According to Coach Pam

Schroeder, the top three spots belong to Laura Jo

Englebrecht, Melanie Mann and Sandy Sutherland. With

the leadership of these outstanding players, the team

anticipated one of its best seasons.

Due to a great deal of depth and strength and

the addition of left- handers Steve Prelsnik and Keith

Yavitt, the men's waterpolo team ended their regular

season with a 22 -4 record and a berth in the NCAA

Championship Tournament in Long Beach, California.

The team, which placed 10th two years ago and 6th

last year in the NCAA Championships, set their sights

on improving their standing this year, and, as Coach

Rick LaRose said, "We have a good chance to win the

national title."

Looking at the team's record, Coach LaRose's

expectations become very plausible. The Arizona team

not only had an outstanding record, but they also

earned top honors at the Arizona tournament and the

New Mexico tournament. They even came back from

Irvine, which is one of the toughest tournaments next

to the NCAA's, with a respectable 2 -2 showing.

Coach LaRose attributed the team's success to

hard work and dedication. In fact, he said that ".. .

five Arizona players have a good chance at making All

American, depending on how they play at the national

championships." The five are captain Brian Gallagher,

leading scorer Dave Breen, Steve Prelsnik, Larry Wahl

and Dave Diamond.

With a large number of returning

players from last year's team, the

1976 volleyball season was one in

which the Arizona team set its sights

on qualifying for the National

Championships in Austin, Texas.

Among its achievements, the

Arizona team posted a 10 -2 league

record and a third place finish in the

Intermountain Conference. This

marked the third consecutive year

that the University of Arizona has

finished in one of the top three

sports in conference play. Dr.

Russell cited conference victories

over Utah State University and New

Mexico State University and

non -conference wins over Arizona

State as high lights of the season.

Both New Mexico state and Utah

State had members of the Olympic

training squad and players with

experience among their ranks.

When asked to name a few

outstanding players, Dr. Russell

stated that there were 11 such

players on the 1976 varsity team and

that 20 of the 22 squad members

have eligibility remaining.

There are presently two separate women's swimming

teams: the synchronized team which is coached by Kathie

Hawkins and the competitive team which is coached by

Millie Roberts. Both teams had very disappointing

seasons last year and are trying to redeem themselves this

year. Each team has done some very successful recruiting

for this season. The synchronized team has picked up two

juniors, Sue Toltzman and Mary Ann Parker, who were

1975 Junior National Champions. The competitive team

picked up two freshmen, Meg Gerrin and Chris Munro,

who will be teaming up with Arizona's outstanding

divers, Janet Leopold and Laurie Brunet. With such

outstanding leadership, the two teams will have no

problem improving their records over last year.

Arizona's men's swimming team,

winner of two consecutive Western Athletic

Conference titles, had hopes of

making it three in a row in 1977.

The Wildcats, hosts of this year's

WAC meet, featured 13 returning swimmers

from last year's team, plus several

highly regarded recruits.

Coach Bob Davis, in his

fourth year at Arizona, expected his

team to be a contender for the top 10

nationally, up from 26th place in the

1976 NCAA meet. He based his optimism

on the abundance of high quality swim -

ers he had on hand.

Leading the list of returning

lettermen was the team's leading scorer

for 1976, sophomore Ken DeMont. DeMont

was strong in several events, especially

in the individual medleys and the backstroke

events. Also returning were:

sprinters Hans Van Arkel and Tim Tucker;

freestyler Dave Fenske; backstroker

Greg Ragsdale; diver Bart Morris; and

butterflier Charley Pearson.

Among the newcomers were three outstanding

transfers from the University

of Washington. They were freestylers

Doug Northway and Rick DeMont and

butterflier Steve Tallman.

Also joining the team were five

former high school All- Americans: Randy

Mastey, Larry Wahl, Jim Harris, Larry

Holmes and Mike Masters.

The dual meet schedule was one of

the toughest ever, but Coach Davis felt

that strong challenges during the regular

season were necessary to prepare the team

to take their stand at the NCAA meet at

Cleveland State University.

A euphimistic phrase describing

a team that will not reach the standard

of previous seasons is frequently

used by coaches to ease

the expectations of rabid fans who

entertain visions of post- season

bowl games and Top 20 rankings.

Head football coach Jim Young said

at the beginning of the season that

this would be a rebuilding year for

the Wildcat football team. Young's

evaluation of his team was accurate

in that their 6 -5 record matched

the predictions of many national

news magazines and the Western

Athletic Conference sportswriters.

In a season plagued by a

myriad of injuries, the Cats were

eliminated from the conference race

early, losing to Brigham Young in

a rain -drenched game that lacked

offensive sparkle. A last play 50yard

desperation touchdown pass by

Cougar quarterback Gifford Nielson

gave BYU the go -ahead six points

to down the UA 28 -16, beginning a

not -so- spectacular season.

The Wildcats fared moderately

well against non -conference foes

Auburn and Northwestern, but suffered

defeats at the hands of the

UCLA Bruins in the season opener,

and also lost to Texas Tech. Both

games were played on the road.

A home loss to Wyoming in the

middle of the season ended the Cats'

chances of clinching the conference

crown and a bid to the Fiesta Bowl.

It was all Arizona in the first

half, but the second half was domi-

nated by a stalwart Cowboy defense

and a sluggish Wildcat offense.

The Pokes were able to take advantage

of numerous Cat errors and

overwhelm their opponents in the

second half, guaranteeing them the

victory and their eventual conference

title.

In other WAC games, Arizona

won a close game in Salt Lake City

against Utah 38 -35, but lost to

archrival Arizona State at home

27 -10. Nor were they fortunate in

their game with the Lobos in Albuquerque,

losing to the University

of New Mexico 21 -15.

There were highlights in this

mediocre season, however, as split

end Keith Hartwig broke the single

season receiving record, crushing

the mark held by Jim Greth that

was established in 1966.

Injuries played a devastating

role in the season as Jim Young was

forced to use second and third team

players throughout the year. One

advantage, though, was that many

players who would have received

little playing time were able to

gain valuable game experience.

The quarterback position turned

out to be a bright spot in the UA

attack as Mark Lunsford took charge

of the team with his fine passing

and smooth running of the option.

When Lunsford was injured early in

the season, freshman Jim Krohn, an

Amphi High graduate from Tucson,

took over the offensive maneuvers,

performing well at the helm. Both

quarterbacks will return next year,

each with a respectable amount of

playing experience.

A spectacular season it was

not, but numerous players did gain

valuable playing experience, and

the Wildcats will have to look to

next year to win the WAC crown.

With an unusually high number

of returning lettermen bolstering

the team, Coach Fred Snowden's

Wildcat Basketball squad should

have little trouble living up to

their pre- season ranking. Last

year's team ended the season with

a 24 -9 mark, finishing second to

UCLA in the NCAA Western

Regional playoffs. Sixteen lettermen

return this year to defend

their Western Athletic Conference

title.

The Cats are ranked as high

ias fourth in the nation in preseason

pools, and with the help

of all -WAC forward Bob Elliott,

Herm "the Germ" Harris and

rugged man Phil Taylor, this year's

crew is in the driver's seat to win

the conference crown for a second

consecutive season.

Elliot, a senior, needs only

65 points to become Arizona's all -

time leading scorer. The current

holder of the record is Al Fleming,

a member of last year's squad.

During the past summer, Elliot

was one of 50 cagers invited to

try out for the U.S. Olympic team.

Coach Snowden will look to Bob to

be a dominating force on defense,

while supplying a good offensive

punch. He entered the season with

a 19.3 scoring average, while grabbing

9.5 rebounds per game.

Swingman Herman Harris has the

ability to be one of the outstanding

players in collegiate basketball.

His "cool" on the court will be a

vital part of the Cat backcourt

BASKETBAL

after the loss of All -WAC guard

Jim Rappis to graduation. With

the return of the dunk to college

basketball, Harris' leaping ability

will undoubtedly give him an advantage,

and he also has the knack of

bringing a crowded McKale center

to its feet.

Phil Taylor, a powerful forward

from Denver, will be back in

the starting line -up for the

Wildcats again. Taylor should be

able to fill the gap left by Al

Fleming, as he has great strength

on the boards, and hopefully will

take some scoring pressure off

Bob Elliot. Taylor started the final

seven games for Arizona last year,

and their only loss came at the

hands of UCLA at Pauley Pavilion in

Los Angeles.

The U of A is also blessed

with returning players who have

seen a good amount of playing

time. 6' 2" guard Gary Harrison,

a senior, will most likely start

in the backcourt, while forward

Jerome Gladney and Len Gordy will

see plenty of action. Tim Marshall

and jr. college transfer Kenny

Davis will also see action on the

UA front line.

For the second year in a row,

Arizona has been tabbed the

favorite of the WAC writers and

sportscasters. Coach Snowden

commented, "As defending

Western Athletic Conference

Champions, we recognize the pride

and effort required in defense

of that title. We are

hopeful that we will find among

these men, those who can replace

the great character and talents of

the graduated Al Fleming and Jim

Rappis."

Coach Snowden has a positive

outlook on the future of his team,

and he said that he will look to

the seniors for their leadership and

maturity.

According to Coach Snowden,

the Cats' style of play will include

a power offense with a controlled

fast break. Defensively, Arizona

will go with a man -to -man, mixed

with various zone pressures.

On the boards, Snowden's

crew should have a dominating

edge with Elliot, Taylor, Gladney,

Larry Demic, and Brian Jung providing

the necessary muscle.

Quickness and improved outside

shooting will also be a strong

point of the Wildcat attack with

guards Harris, Harrison, Ron

Fuller, and Tommy Williams providing

team direction from the

backcourt.

Arizona's baseball coach, Jerry Kindall,

was the first to admit that the 1977 Wildcats

had a hard act to follow after the 1976 team

won the NCAA World Series in Omaha. Coach

Kindall was, however, pleased to see that last

year's spirited attitude carried through to

this year.

Coach Kindall was quite concerned about

the spots that were left open by the loss of

last year's outstanding players, but he was

confident that the upcoming players would fill

the gap.

Returning starters included Pete Van Horne,

Les Pearsey, Glenn Wendt and Don Zimmerman.

There were five outstanding junior college

transfers fighting for the two outfield

openings. They were Lynn Garrett, Steve

Jasco, Darnell Kirkland, Jim Morley and Jeff

Stanley.

A pinch hitter and part -time designated

hitter from last season, Bob Woodside, was in

the catching position while left- hander Bobby

Chaulk and right- hander Dave Crutcher were the

only returning moundsmen. Both Chaulk and

Crutcher had outstanding reputations and were

definite assets to the Arizona team.

With the 1976 season behind them, Coach

Jerry Kindall and the 1977 Wildcats plowed

into the season with visions of capturing

another NCAA World Series title.
