students from 
Farrell Library's ex- 
pansion, became a 
forum for artistic 
expression and the 
focus of controversy 
as students and ad-

verywhere students turned in the fall, they were faced 
with signs of an evolving campus. With finishing touches 
ingputoriThrockinorton I Ia.ll, construction crews were in 
the midst of a $28 million, 2-1/2-year Farrell Library expan- 
sion-and-renovation project and the student-funded Chester 
E. Peters Recreation Complex expansion. 

One aspect of campus construction spurred widespread 
debate: a plywood wall put up to protect pedestrians from 
Farrell's renovation. Students soon began to see The Wall as 
an artistic canvas and forum for free expression. But when 
The Wall was removed Sept. 23, the controversy didn't die. 

While students at the 
Manhattan campus buzzed 
about The Wall, students at 
K-State-Salina were talking 
about "the hall" — the new 
residence hall that housed 98 
students and resident assis- 
tants as walls went up for The fall semester brought a unique experience for 

students. For $20, students could experience an

racks overflowed. Students weren't the only ones with pedal 
power, though: KSU Police employed a two-officer bicycle 
patrol that stirred controversy — and was briefly suspended 
— in the first few weeks of school after bicyclists argued they 
were being targeted.

But the bike patrol wasn't all students spoke up about. 

A tuition increase drove Mark Tomb, sophomore in arts and 
sciences and student senator, to protest: He paid the entire 
$1,042.55 for in-state tuition and fees in nickels and dimes. 
Students found reason to celebrate amid the array of 
construction and financial woes. With a successful turnout at 
the Welcome Back Concert Aug. 28 in City Park, KSDB- 
FM 91.9 proved the idea of a fall concert was still alive. 
Football fans came out in droves — an estimated 3,500 
stormed KSU Stadium at the first Fan Appreciation Day, and 

38,216 set a home opening- 
game record. Then on Oct. 6, 
the Cats beat the KUJayhawks 
in Lawrence, 21-13, marking 
; the first time in 25 years the 
team won on Jayhawk turf. 
Yet another achievement was 
showcased at the games: The

stretched to 227 members — 
100 more than the year before.

ing pains. With the city's annexation of K-State in the 
summer, students in residence halls learned they would be 
able to vote in city elections. But in the wake of the largest- 
ever graduating class — 4,177 members — in May 1994, a 
new set of students defined campus. Whether the University 
focused on annexation, construction, higher tuition or 
improving reputation, the year's events would blur the 
boundaries for years to come.

tudent life ranged from fan frenzy to 

swift skating, debating freedom of ex- 

pression to finding common ground. 

Sights and sounds of construction bom- 

barded students returning for the fall 

semester and blurred the boundaries of 

campus. Controversy brewed when a 

plywood wall separating students and 

Farrell Library took on greater mean- 

ing. But on many occasions, students 

united, whether in school spirit, finan- 

cial hardship, boot-kicking celebration, 

transportation difficulties or working 

toward racial and ethnic harmony.

iris LeDoux fans answered the 
call of the wild with cowboy hats, 
cups of beer and flying Copen- 
hagen cans. 

Almost 2,400 people sat on 
lawn chairs and blankets and 
danced in a fenced-off area at the 
Tuttle Creek State Park River 
Pond Area during the Chris 
LeDoux concert Sept. 18. 

The crowd waited for three hours 
through two Manhattan-based 
opening bands, Rio and Shootin' 
Blanks, before LeDoux took the 
stage, but students said LeDoux's 
performance was worth the wait. 

"I thought he was wonderful," 
Tisha Cline, freshman in elemen- 
tary education, said. "I'd seen him 
before, and he was better this time. 
He puts so much energy into it." 

LeDoux wooed the crowd with 
love songs, including "When I 
Look at You Girl," and wowed 
the audience with the upbeat songs 
"Hooked on an 8-Second Ride," 
"Call of the Wild" and "Cadillac 

The cowboy-musician was 
showered with cans of Copenhagen 
snuff when he sang the LeDoux 
original "Copenhagen." 

"I bought him a can," Mara 
Barngrover, senior in animal sci- 
ences and industry, said. 

Barngrover, Rodeo Club presi- 
dent, was one of 35 students who 
were involved behind the scenes 
and on stage. She worked in the 
parking area and helped set up the 
concert site. 

Rodeo Club was paid $500 to 
help with set-up, tear-down, park- 
ing and security, she said. 

Troy Warnken, owner and 

manager ofTW Longhorn's, asked 
the club to help with the concert 
and provide Weber Arena as an 
alternative concert location in case 
of rain, she said. 

Rodeo Club member Rhonda 
Ward, senior in animal sciences 
and industry, planned to help with 
security in the park. Although she 
didn't remember anything about 
the concert day, she had a keep- 
sake she would never forget. 

Ward was on horseback in the 
park when her horse reared up 
and went over on its back. 

The horse landed on Ward's 
legs and then rolled away from 
her. She spent 24 hours in the 
hospital with a slight concussion. 

"The worst thing about it was 
I didn't get to see Chris LeDoux," 
Ward said. 

LeDoux had to leave Manhat- 
tan after the concert for another 
show. He sent Ward a picture on 
which he wrote he was sorry he 
couldn't come see her, but hoped 
she got well soon. 

Other students had better luck. 

"I saw a lot of people I hadn't 
seen in a year or so," Amie 
Arensdorf, senior in animal sci- 
ences and industry, said. 

Arensdorf said the show was 
good, but she wasn't impressed 
with LeDoux's new material. 

"I wish he'd played his older 
stuff," Arensdorf said. 

Barngrover said she enjoyed 
the show because LeDoux played 
to the crowd. 

"He can relate to people who 
rodeo," she said. "That's a lot of 
what his songs are about. That's 
pretty cool."

with fame

aking advantage of a mo- 
ment in the spotlight, students 
flocked to karaoke stages at local 
bars. Through singing and mim- 
icking popular songs from recent 
decades, students alleviated stress 
and flirted with fame. 

Although some who did 
karaoke were talented singers, the 
nature of karaoke gave others the 
chance to shine. 

"I'm terrible, but no one ex- 
pects you to do well, especially in 
a bar," said Robin Hartman, jun- 
ior in human development and 
family studies and pre-law. 

Valerie Michaelis, sophomore 
in kinesiology, did karaoke just to 
have fun. 

"Half the time, the fun part is 
not being a good singer," she said. 

On occasion, it took a little 
prodding to get singers on stage, 
Hartman said. 

"Some people will do it only if 
they get dared — others just live 
it up," she said. 

Some students preferred to sing 
in groups. 

"I'd never sing by myself, nor 
would I do it to impress a girl," 
Jarrod Fish, senior in finance and 
management, said. 

Although karaoke was a game 
for some, it was a business for 

Four students, who called 
themselves Grand Central Sta- 
tion, became regulars at karaoke 
events during the past three years. 

Doug Walsh, junior in agri- 
cultural economics, said Grand 
Central Station formed when the 
four were freshmen in the Alpha 
Gamma Rho fraternity. The big- 

gest attraction to karaoke, Walsh 
said, was being the center of atten- 
tion and getting to perform. 

"A friend of ours asked us to 
sing for a bachelorette party, and 
we took her up on her offer. Ever 
since, the word has been out," 
Casey Niemann, junior in agri- 
cultural business and milling sci- 
ence, said. 

They said they stayed away 
from slow songs and believed 
dance moves and costumes also 
improved their performances. 

"One of our craziest perfor- 
mances was when we came out on 
the stage as the Jackson Five and 
stripped down to the Bee Gees 
gear to the music we had dubbed," 
Chris Mullinix, junior in animal 
sciences and industry, said. 

Doug Roney, junior in me- 
chanical engineering and milling 
science and management, said the 
group did not do karaoke just to 
win prizes. 

"We just like to have fun, and 
we're not afraid to take the lime- 
light," he said. 

Even though the group mem- 
bers were outgoing, Roney said, 
they still got nervous. 

"I get nervous when we don't 
have as much practice or if we are 
performing for an older crowd," 
he said. 

Hartman said she believed 
karaoke would continue to be a 
popular form of entertainment tor 
college students. 

"The first time I saw karaoke 
was when we got to college," she 
said, "and I think it has evolved 
from a formal thing to a more 
casual, social thing."

atis with great expectations came

preseason Fan Appreciation Day. 
The football feeding frenzy fol-

Bowl victory brought about 3,500 
Cat: fans to the Aug. 25 event.

years ago, you'd have had 20 
people here," John Havlin, asso- 
ciate professor of agronomy, said. 
"It's been remarkable watching 
the transition."

duced as "the 
man who's re- 
writing the his- 
tory of K-State 
football," spoke 
of that transi- 
tion as he in- 
troduced his 
coaching staff 
to the fans.

prised Snyder 

hosted such an event. 

"He was a secretive person 
when he first got here," Ewy said. 
"When he first came here, he 

installed the green mesh on the 
fence to avoid attention." 

There was no escaping atten- 
tion for Snyder and the players, 
who were inundated with fans. 

Autograph seekers engulfed 
senior quarterback Chad May in a 
circle of outstretched arms hold- 
ing T-shirts, notebooks, footballs, 
posters and K-State license plates. 

For May, the day was a way for 
the team to give thanks. 

"It was great for the kids," May 
said. "We wanted to give our 
thanks to the fans. It was some- 
thing I felt we needed to do." 

It was great for the players, too. 

"This is perfect," senior offen- 
sive tackle Barrett Brooks said. 
"There's nothing like playing for 
people who like you. 

"This is wonderful. I haven't 
written my name this many times

Fan support could decide a sea- 
son, Mo Latimore, defensive line 
coach, said. 

"It sets the pace for the season. 
It gets the team motivated to play 
hard. That's what college football 
is all about — hearing the fans 
screaming for the team." 

One former K-State football 
player said he was overwhelmed 
by the crowd's enthusiasm. 

"There's more people here to- 
day than there were for our last 
game against Colorado my fresh- 
man year," David Reynolds, run- 
ning back from 1974 to 1979, 
said. "The interest is incredible

the in-line 

way to class 

by Kimberly Wishart 

>mbating congestion caused 
>y campus construction, students 
found in-line skating a quick and 
functional way to travel to class. 

"It (in-line skating) cuts five 
minutes off of my walking time 
and about three minutes off from 
riding a bike. I timed it going to 
registration so I'd know how much 
lead time to allow," Chris 
Learning, senior in park resources 
management, said. 

In-line skating replaced bike 
riding for some students because 
traffic paths were rerouted around 
construction sites. 

"Frankly, it's more of a hassle 
finding a place to put my bike," 
Learning said. "It's hard to find a 
place to chain the thing up or to 
find a place to ride it where I 
won't get a ticket." 

Although in-line skaters didn't 
have to worry about being issued 
tickets, they had to weigh the 
chance of injuries and maneuver- 
ing around students against getting 
through campus faster. 

To reduce the severity of inju- 
ries, some skaters used proper pro- 
tective gear. Others found the 
safety equipment restrictive. 

"I wear hand protective gear, 
but that's it," James Punohu, se- 
nior in hotel and restaurant man- 
agement, said. "It's uncomfort- 
able, hot, and it decreases mobil- 

Opportunity for injury de- 
creased when the sidewalks were 
in good shape. 

"Campus is one of the smoother 
surfaces around town," Punohu said. 

Shannon Yust, junior in psy- 
chology, also preferred campus 

sidewalks to those downtown. 

"You have room to move 
around and work on your moves, 
especially right down the middle 
of campus. There are only small 
cracks in between the sidewalk 
squares on campus, not like the 
sidewalks in 
town that have 
tree roots push- 
ing through 
them," Yust 
said. "You can 
skate there in 
the evening, 
too, because 
campus is so 
well lit. No one 
will bother 
you, and you 
feel secure."

Becca Rademann, junior in

places to skate because campus 
was too congested.

do that than go to the Rec (Com-

j he Wall. 

Built to protect students from 
Farrell Library's construction and 
expansion The Wall became the 
centerpiece of controversy. 

Phrases such as "Scool Suks," 
along with some profanity, and 
sexual and ethnic slurs, decorated 
the plywood barrier and stirred a 
debate about vandalism and free- 
dom of expression. 

The admin- 
istration or- 
dered facilities 
to paint The 
Wall Sept. 19. 
"A lot of 
really contro- 
versial items 
were on The 
Wall, (and) the 
shop was asked 
to take a look 
at painting it 
and cleaning it 
up a little bit," 
Randy Slover, 
director of fa- 
cilities mainte- 
nance, said. 

"So, we de- 
cided to paint 
it purple." 

K-State in- 
vested $320 in 
paint and overtime pay for work- 
ers to cover up The Wall. Some 
were upset about the decision. 

"I understand why some of 
the more vulgar graffiti had to be 
covered up, but I sympathize 
with the artists who did really 
neat work and had it lost because 
of a couple vulgar sayings," Mike 
Newcomb, freshman in pre- 

medicine, said. 

The following day, student art- 
ists went to work on the newly 
painted Wall. Among the artwork 
was a large foot labeled 'Adminis- 
tration' stepping on a group of 
stick people labeled 'Students.' 

Artwork multiplied, and Uni- 
versity officials decided The Wall 
had become a nuisance. 

"There would be people who 
would want to stop and read what 
was going on, and there would be 
a press of people coming from 
both sides," Jerry Carter,director 
of facilities planning and Univer- 
sity architect, said. "It was getting 
to a point were The Wall wasn't 
providing for the safe passage of 
students, faculty and staff." 

Sept. 22, the day before The 
Wall came down, a group of stu- 
dents sponsored a Student Senate 
resolution called "Save The Wall" 
to stop its removal. 

Steffany Carrel, legislation co- 
sponsor, said the University should 
have strived to maintain The Wall 
as an avenue of free expression. 

"It's protection from construc- 
tion and an outlet for the artistic 
minds of campus, "Carrel, senior 
in journalism and mass communi- 
cations, said. 

Some students disagreed. 

"I feel that The Wall was the 
private use of the University, and 
the students shouldn't have put 
things on it," John Potter, sopho- 
more in finance, said. 

"The profanity and the per- 
sonal attacks against Pat Bosco 
(dean of student life) and others 
were offensive," he said. "Hatred 
has no place at a university."

The $28 mil- 
lion expansion 
and renova- 
tion to Farrell 
Library began 
in March 
1994. The 
project, lo- 
cated in the 
heart of cam- 
pus, rerouted 
campus paths.

oisy construction sites, a lack 
of parking spaces and rerouted 
paths through campus were the 
result of multiple construction 

The projects created building 
and bother as the University fo- 
cused on meeting the growing 
needs of students and faculty. 

"Inconvenience is the price of 
progress," Tom Rawson, vice 
president of administration and 
finance, said. 

The $28 million Farrell Library 
expansion and renovation caused 
campus paths to be rerouted. 

"It's weird for people in resi- 
dence halls because they have to 
walk all the way around," Lisa 
Grey, senior in secondary educa- 
tion, said. "It irritated me that I 
couldn't walk down (Mid) Cam- 
pus Drive." 

The project was expected to 
cost $28 million. Students con- 
tributed $5 million in student fees, 
$5 million came from private 
sources and $18 million was ap- 
propriated by legislation with the 
support of Gov. Joan Finney. 

"Ideally, it would be better to 
build a new building," Brice 
Hobrock, dean of libraries, said. 
"This is going to be one of the most 
complex projects ever done in 

The design, Hobrock said, 
called for wrapping Farrell 
Library's exterior with a new lime- 
stone layer of Gothic and Ro- 
manesque details that harmonized 
with its campus surroundings. 

"The collegiate Gothic style 
matches the original north section 
of the library with buildings like

Willard Hall and the Putnam and 
Van Zile residence halls," Hobrock 
said. "The library's new south and

pected to double shelving capac- 
ity and make the library more 
adaptable, Hobrock said. 

"The renovations will make 
Farrell more flexible, open and 
wired to accommodate electronic 
advances," Hobrock said. 

The architects planned to ex- 
pand student seating to 2,000 high- 
quality seats, enabling the library 
to accommodate 10 percent of the 
student body. Before renovations, 
seating capacity was 850, and many

of those seats weren't high quality, 

Hobrock said. 

The project, which was ex- 
pected to expand Farrell by 
153,000 square feet, was sched- 
uled to take 30 months, but the 
construction crew planned to have 
it done in 25 months, Hobrock 
said. Construction was scheduled 
to be finished by September 1 996. 
In the meantime, the project cre- 
ated hassle for library employees. 

"The renovation makes patrons 
have more questions," said Sonya 
Thompson, sophomore in sec- 
ondary education and library stu- 
dent assistant. 

"It's a little more work direct- 
ing people because more people 
need help," she said. "There is a 
lot more confusion about where 
things are at or where they should 

While renovations to Farrell 
were inconvenient for pedestri- 
ans, complex for designers and 
more work for library personnel, 
students were enthusiastic about 
the new opportunities the fin- 
ished library would create. 

"I'm excited about the expan- 
sion," Bob Eichkorn, junior in 
pre-medicine, said. "The renova- 
tions will provide students with a 
better-organized library where 
they can find information more 

Arya Yarpezeshkan, junior in 
life sciences, was proud of the 
legacy the student body would 

"Our money is going to a 
project that future students will 
enjoy and benefit from," he said. 

Farrell wasn't the only campus 
location where construction 
projects rerouted traffic. The en- 
trance to campus at 14th Street 
and Anderson Avenue was closed 
for construction of the Marianna 
Kistler Beach Museum of Art. 

Nelson Britt, director of the 
museum, said upon completion, 

the Beach Art Museum would be 
a milestone that would set K-State 
and the surrounding community 

"The way I like to put it is that 
we will have a magnificent mu- 
seum in a wonderful location on 
campus," Britt said. 

The museum, named for 
Marianna Kistler Beach of Hays, 
whose husband Ross donated $2 
million to the project, was being 
built in the southeast corner of 
campus near Thompson Hall. 

The 25,000 square-foot mu- 
seum would contain five galleries, 
a 1 40-seat assembly hall, large com- 
mons area, bookstore and cafe. 

While work on the art mu- 
seum hadjust begun, construction 
on the Chester E. Peters Recre- 
ation Complex, a $7.8 million 
project, was almost complete. 

Slated for completion in sum- 
mer 1995 after an estimated 18 
months of expansion, the Rec 
Complex would have four more 
basketball courts, a 10,000 square- 
foot weight room, an aerobic 
multipurpose room and a one- 
eighth-mile track for running and 

Down the road from the Rec 
Complex, the Throckmorton 
Plant Sciences Center completion 
was celebrated with a ribbon-cut- 
ting ceremony Oct. 14 after 15 
years of planning. 

Phase one of construction be- 
gan in 1979. The $18 million first 
phase was completed in 1 98 1 , Gary 
Paulsen, professor of agronomy, 
said. Phase two consisted of final 
construction of the Greenhouse 
Complex and Throckmorton. 

"Throckmorton is a different 
kind of field of dreams," Pat Rob- 
erts, U.S. congressional represen- 
tative from Kansas, said. "It will 
attract the top scientists and stu- 
dents from around the world." 

At a cost of $27 million, 
Throckmorton expanded to

Vuring the seventh stop of his 
1 0-city, coast-to-coast tour pro- 
moting independent bookstores, 
King answers questions in 
Varney's Book Store. "What I'm 
interested in doing is supporting 
independent bookstores," he 
said, "so they don't go the way 
of the corner grocery stores."

he dark mind of fiction roared 
into a dreary Aggieville at high 
noon Oct. 15. 

A handful of enthusiastic fans 
caught the early arrival of horror 
writer Stephen King on his Harley. 
He stopped at Varney's Book 
Store, the seventh stop on his self- 
proclaimed low-rent, 10-city, 
coast-to-coast jaunt, during the 
Wildcats' football game against 

"It was like 'The Stand' hap- 
pened here and everyone was 
dead," King said during a media 
conference at Varney's. "Then, all 
of a sudden, there was a vast bestial 
roar. It just about knocked me off 
my bike. We came into town just 
as K-State had scored." 

Varney's sponsored King's 
reading Oct. 15 in McCain Audi- 

King opened in McCain to a 
sold-out crowd and a standing 
ovation. Citing the influence of 
his mother's childhood stories and 
the tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. 
Hyde, King talked about his writ- 
ing style. 

"I guess I just like to gross 
people out," King said. "I guess I 
thought if you can write it down, 
verbalize, the worst thing that can 
happen, then maybe it won't scare 
you anymore." 

In addition to promoting his 
book, King read from "Insom- 
nia" and discussed the importance 
of supporting independent book- 

"Independent bookstores and 
independent-bookstore employ- 
ees grow writers," he said. "My 
wife (author Tabitha King) is a 

minimalist writer. If you don't 
stock the minimalist writers, you 
don't give them a chance." 

Matt Bechtold, sophomore in 
English and journalism and mass 
communications, said he gained 
more from King's visit because of 
the author's laid-back approach. 

"I liked the informalness of it 
and his use of humor, especially in 
answering questions," Bechtold 
said. "(I liked) the fact that he 
came here and was so up front 
with the audience." 

Throughout his talk, King 
plugged Varney's and shouted 
"take that, chains." He asked the 
audience not to purchase copies of 
his book at a chain store. 

During the audience question 
session, Kathy Adamczyk, Man- 
hattan resident and Waldenbooks 
employee, challenged King's 
claim that chain stores lacked the 
handselling practice he champi- 
oned as a quality of independent 

"He said that people in the 
chain stores don't care, but they 
do," Adamczyk said. "I don't think 
he is hurting the chain stores. I 
think he is hurting himself with 
the chain stores." 

King, whose books were sold 
in independent bookstores first, 
said becoming a successful writer 
had its drawbacks. He explained 
his reclusive behavior and why his 
last book tour was more than a 
decade ago. 

"I don't like being a celebrity. 
I don't like being treated like one. 
I don't know what people want 
from me," King said. "What I 
have to give I put in my books."

rouble stemming from un- 
derage drinking, public intoxica- 
tion, bar fights and fake identifi- 
cation complicated having a good 
time in Aggieville. 

Sherri Eilert, senior in elemen- 
tary education and waitress at 
Rock-A-Belly Deli, frequented 
Aggieville at least twice a week. 

"It is kickin' on Friday and 
Saturday night. I go down, usu- 
ally to Rock-A-Belly and have a 
drink and see my friends," Eilert 
said. "Everything is within walk- 
ing distance. That is important 
because people aren't driving 
drunk. You get to see a lot of 
people and fun is centralized." 

Before any drinking could be 
done, students first had to get past 
the bouncer. 

"We just recently started 
(checking identification) at the 
doors," Eilert said. "We make an 
effort, especially after 10 p.m. We 
have a lot of regulars (but) if I 
don't know someone, I check 
their IDs." 

Instead of borrowing or creat- 
ing fake IDs, some minors tried to 
get by with their real IDs. 

"I'm sure there are a lot of fake 
IDs circulating around. We can't 
catch everything. Most minors 
are brazen enough to hand me a 
real one. I guess maybe they think 
I'll just look at the photo and 
serve them," Eilert said. "I'm 
amazed that they think it will 
work, like we don't even read 
them. We do." 

For underage drinkers, getting 
into Aggieville required more then 
a fake ID. 

Dana Lee, senior in psychol- 

ogy, said sneaking into an 
Aggieville bar before he came to 
K-State meant paying extra. 

"We bribed the bouncers," he 
said. "I had to pay $7 to get in." 

When Aggieville bars were full, 
admission was difficult. Nathan 
Havercroft, graduate student in 
chemistry and bouncer at Lucky 
BrewGrille, said on the weekend 
they allowed 
one student in 
the bar for ev- 
ery two who 

"Things get 
crowded and 
tempers flare 
when it is 
crowded. Peo- 
ple bump into 
each other, spill 
drinks and the 
place gets 
warm," Haver- 
croft said. 

Bouncers at 
Lucky Brew- 
Grille worked to control the 
crowding and watch for fights. 

"We watch for anything that 
might flare up, "Havercroft said. 
"Fights start over one guy spilling 
another's beer or the usual two 
blokes fighting over a girl," 
Havercroft said. "We stop every- 
one else from coming in until it's 
over. We always separate the of- 
fending parties. If it gets rowdy, 
we take it outside. If they start 
breaking glasses and tables, who 
knows what they'll do to people." 

If fights broke out, Eilert said 
alcohol was almost always in-

"We have a taxi on call, and we

Lt. Buddy Mays, of the Riley

number of people who broke the 
law, an increased police presence 
and the fact that Aggieville bars

junior in architectural engineer- 
ing, said. "He just made us pour it

in the week. 

"I've never had a good time in

want to spend it down (in

he language of harmony was 
spoken by leaders representing 
religious and cultural campus or- 
ganizations Oct. 2-7. 

During Racial/Ethnic Har- 
mony Week, students defined by 
their religious beliefs and ethnic 
identities talked openly and cel- 
ebrated common goals. 

The Interfaith Dialogue, Oct. 
2, brought members of the Jewish, 
Islamic and Christian doctrines to- 
gether to discuss the role of faith in 
the journey toward peace. 

Moderating the event, the Rev. 
Don Fallon, coordinator of reli- 
gious activities, spoke about 
squelching violence as a first step. 

"We are very aware of vio- 
lence and how faith, our three 
faiths, may deal with the question 
of violence within ourselves and 
work toward peace," Fallon said. 

Three speakers led 70 students 
in the dialogue. 

Sister Mary Christine Fellerhoff, 
from Sister of Saint Agnes in Mil- 
waukee, said ordinary people, not 
the experts, would solve the prob- 
lems of violence. 

"If religion is one of the boxes 
we put people in, then it will be 
part of the problem," she said. 
"The Christians' answer to vio- 
lence is to take seriously Christ's 
message of love." 

The Islamic faith was repre- 
sented by Hamed Ghazali, vice 
president of the Islamic Associa- 
tion of North America. He stressed 
inner peace and Muslims' rela- 
tionship to society. 

"If I feel like the community 
cares for me and takes care of me, 
I will never have violence toward 

the community," said Ghazali, 
graduate student in educational 
curriculum and instruction. 

Rabbi Larry Karol, from the 
Shalom Temple in Topeka, spoke 
about treating others with respect. 

"The fundamental views of 
Judaism include to love your 
neighbor as yourself," he said. 

The religious leaders also ad- 
dressed the idea of working to- 
ward peace on campus and in the 
local community. Karol suggested 
groups unify and work toward 
similar goals. 

"I have found that people in 
faith groups that are divergent can 
come together best for a common 
cause," he said. "But the issues in 
which people disagree have to be 
dealt with." 

Karol cited the success of a 
program that allowed young stu- 
dents to play and talk with chil- 
dren of different religions. 

"They get together and learn 
from each other," he said. "They 
don't go away agreeing with each 
other but knowing each other." 

Listening and getting involved 
with people from other groups 
was important in forging a mutual 
respect, Karol said. 

"I think we, all three, have 
heard echoes of tradition in each 
other," he said. 

Brian Buford, junior in psychol- 
ogy and member of K-State's com- 
mittee on religion, said interfaith 
dialogues would solve problems. 

"This is something that needs 
to be done," Buford said. "Per-

JLev Kedem, Holocaust survivor, visits with

rum Hall Oct. 6. Kedem, whose life was spared by 
Oskar Schindler in Poland, "was an adviser to the 
movie "Schindler's List." "I discovered a language 
(through the film) to at least discuss "what happened 
to me," Kedem said. (Photo by Todd Feeback) 

(Continued from page 29) 

was amazed to find out that in 

some areas they felt similarly." 

During the week, students were 
invited to attend meetings for Black 
Student Union and express their 
opinions through poetry at the Oct. 
3 UPC-sponsored poetry reading. 
Zev Kedem spoke of his expe- 
riences as a Holocaust survivor 
and drew an overflow crowd of 
1,058 to Forum Hall. 

Kedem, an 

engineer and 
served as a con- 
sultant to Ste- 
ven Spielberg's 
1993 Oscar- 
winning epic, 

Kedem said 
he dealt with 
years of inter- 
nalizing the 
trauma after 
seeing the film. 
"I discov- 
ered a language 
(through the 
film) to at least 
discuss what 
happened to 
me," he said. 

Kedem was 
8 when his fam- 
ily was forced by 
the Nazis to live 
in the over- 
crowded ghetto 
of Krakov and 
later the work 
camp Plaszow in his native Poland. 
"The degradation, even to a 
child during the Holocaust, was so 
difficult, so insidious that I would 
not speak about it for 50 years," he 
said. "The only objective for a 
child of that age was to see if you 
could beat the system and live for 
another day." 

At Plaszow, Oskar Schindler 
enlisted Dr. Leon Gross, Kedem's 
stepfather, to treat his factory 
workers. Subsequently, Kedem 
and his mother were placed on 
Schindler's list. 

When Schindler moved his fac- 
tory to Brinnlitz, Czechoslovakia, 
Kedem was sent to the Auschwitz 
concentration camp where a num- 
ber was immediately tattooed on 
his forearm. 

"I had tears of joy and a little 
discomfort," he said. "I realized 
that if the Nazis had invested 
enough to put a number on us, 
then they weren't going to kill us 
— that night, anyway." 

Stressing the evils of blind ha- 
tred, Kedem discussed the extreme 
levels of racism he endured. 

"It wasn't just destroying one 
nationality — it was denigrating and 
humiliating people to levels lower 
than that of humans," he said. 

Kedem was cared for by Ameri- 
can soldiers after fleeing Auschwitz 
at the end of World War II. A 
generation later, he found his 
mother, Selma. 

As part of the last generation of 
Holocaust survivors, Kedem be- 
lieved there was a message for 
everyone in his experience. 

"We must never forget the evil 
that happened to that little boy 
and millions of others like him, 
and, most importantly, we must 
never let it happen again, " he said. 

His message was heard by an 
audience of mixed racial and eth- 
nic groups. 

"I was astounded by the crowd 
outside," Libby Pvittmaster, senior 
in Spanish and Latin American stud- 
ies, said. "They weren't just com- 
ing because it was a Jewish issue but 
because it was a world issue. I think 
it struck a deeper core." 

Racial/Ethnic Harmony week 
ended Oct. 7 after students walked 
in unity from the Vietnam Veter- 
ans Memorial through campus.

he hauntingly beautiful score 
for Andrew Lloyd Webber's in- 
ternationally known and acclaimed 
musical "Evita" resounded 
through McCain Auditorium Oct. 
18 before a sold-out crowd. 

Constant movement, dancing 
and love ballads reflected the Latin 
American love affair Argentina had 
with Eva Peron. "Evita" captured 
the passion and charisma of Peron, 
Argentina's celebrated spiritual 
leader born in 1919. 

Themes in "Evita" included a 
competition for the spotlight 
fought through verbal duels, and 
the role of power a charismatic 
figure had in stealing the alle- 
giance of a nation. 

The original Broadway pro- 
duction garnered seven Tony 
Awards, including Best Musical in 
1 980 and a 1 98 1 Grammy for Best 
Original Cast Album. 

Belting out the notable title 
song, "Don't Cry For Me, Argen- 
tina," Eva, played by Kerri Jill 
Garbis, was responsible for keep- 
ing the tempo and musical rhythm 
at fever pitch. 

The company of Mini-Mac Inc. 
toured the United States and 
Canada from September until 
April. The players performed at 
K-State after a stay in Arkansas. 

Richard Martin, director of 
McCain Auditorium, said the pro- 
duction was originally scheduled 
to be a matinee, but the travel and 
time required for set-up dictated a 
7 p.m. starting time. 

"It was essentially a sold-out 
performance," Martin said. "We 
sold 1 ,650 tickets, but that doesn't 
include ushers, press and such." 

The traveling production used 
folding chairs, scaffolding, a large 
door on wheels and other mini- 
mal props for the performance. 

But audience members in the 
balcony were not able to see the 
movie-screen pictures of Peron. 
They were also unable to see spe- 
cial effects farther back on stage. 

Laura McGill, senior in En- 
glish, said she enjoyed the music 
and stage pre- 
sentation even 
though techni- 
cal difficulties 
plagued the 

"The sound 
problems made 
it difficult to 
hear the narra-

even in the 
front row," 
McGill said. 
"(It was a) re- 
ally neat stage 
and (it was) too 

bad the whole audience did not 
get to see all of the effects." 

Melissa Benkelman, senior in 
elementary education, said the 
creative staging made the produc- 
tion more interesting. 

"You have to realize that it 
isn't a naturalistic show," she said. 
"The set is to just give you an 
impression of the scene." 

Benkelman said she was de- 
lighted by the show. 

"I had seen it before as a high- 
school production," she said, "and 
it was really exciting to see a pro- 
fessional production."

eing a vegetarian on a pre- 
dominantly meat-eating campus 
had its challenges. 

"There are times I am just 
infuriated," Nina Moore, senior 
in elementary education, said. 
"People won't accept the fact that 
I'm a vegetarian, and that I don't 
have this philosophy I'm ready to 
rattle off." 

Brad Shank, graduate student 
in mathematics, had similar expe- 

"I don't usually tell people be- 
cause they react so weird," he said. 

That weird reaction included 
stereotypes about vegetarians. 

"They think you recycle ev- 
erything and have compost piles, " 
said Zachary Baze, junior in jour- 
nalism and mass communications 
and theater. 

"I guess that's because a lot of 
vegetarians are like that," he said. 
"They're really devoted to other 

One of those causes was com- 
passion for animals. 

P.J. Lakhani, senior in physics 
and electrical engineering, main- 
tained a vegetarian lifestyle be- 
cause of her religious beliefs. 

"We believe in nonviolence to 
all living things," said Lakhani, 
who practiced Jainism, a mixture 
of Hinduism and Buddhism. 

When she was 10, Lakhani's 
parents gave her the choice to be 
a vegetarian. 

"I was convinced that nonvio- 
lence was the way to go," she said. 

Others considered eating ani- 
mals unappetizing. 

"I took an anatomy course my 
senior year of high school, and 

when I could start identifying the 
muscles and nerves in what I was 
eating, it was just unpleasant," 
Baze said. 

A healthy diet was another con- 
sideration for vegetarians. 

"At first, I didn't know what I 
was doing," Moore said. "(Now) 
I feel I'm fairly well-read on the 
subject. If you do it right, it's very 
healthy for you." 

Students had different experi- 
ences depending on the extent of 
their vegetarianism. 

Shank, who ate no meat, dairy 
products or meat byproducts, and 
wore no leather, found it difficult 
to eat in restaurants. 

"I'd almost just rather cook for 
myself," he said. "For the same 
amount of money, you could feed 
five people." 

Lakhani, a Putnam Hall resi- 
dent, found eating in campus din- 
ing centers challenging. 

"There's always something I 
can eat, but it's not always healthy," 
she said. 

But the situation for residents 
was improving, said Barbara 
Scheule, administrative dietitian 
with the Department of Housing 
and Dining Services. 

"I think what we've offered for 
vegetarians has increased over the 
past several years," Scheule said. 
"There's a vegetarian entree in 
every meal." 

Although they sometimes dealt 
with inconvenience, vegetarians 
didn't regret their diets. 

"I've found 10 million more 
things to eat," Moore said. "It's

hristian students faced the 
trials of college life by trusting in 
the grace of God and joining cam- 
pus Bible studies. 

Whether in residence-hall 
basements or rooms, some Chris- 
tians met weekly to study the 
Bible and learn more about God. 
It was a time to be with others 
who shared their beliefs. 

"The Bible study encourages 
us through our walk as a Chris- 
tian," Mindi Woods, senior in 
biology, said. 

Woods led a group of women 
in a weekly study called "Experi- 
encing God," which met Tues- 
day nights in 
Boyd Hall. 
Verse memori- 
zation, prayer 
and discussion 
were intense 
parts of the 
Bible study. 

"The Bible 
study helps 
keep you ac- 
Tara Ericson, 
junior in el- 
ementary edu- 
cation, said. 
"We have to memorize a verse 
each week, and we pray, which is 
much emphasized." 

Bible study groups also met in 
Goodnow and Haymaker halls. 

"There was a great need for it. 
Since there was the demand, I felt 
God was saying 'here,' " Beth 
Smith, senior in marketing, said. 
Smith, co-leader of the 
Goodnow Bible study, said being 
in the group made her more corn-

mitted to her religious beliefs and 
involved her in more campus ac- 

In Haymaker, Byron Jayne, 
senior in mathematics, opened his 
room each Wednesday night at 9. 

What began as a relaxed study 
soon took on the form of an in- 
tense learning forum. 

"There's so much you can learn 
from the five chapters (in the Book 
of James). It's an in-depth study 
that provokes discussion. You learn 
to know God," Mo Wiley, sopho- 
more in civil engineering, said. 

Co-leader Justin Salmans, se- 
nior in industrial engineering, 

"The study is more focused. 
With the Book of James, you can 
go deeper with more subject mat- 
ters," he said. "I want those in the 
group to feel they can face college 
life and the issues that are included 
with it — to know what's right 
and wrong and be able to stand up 
for what they believe." 

When Christians walked the 
campus as students during the 
week, though, things didn't al- 
ways go well. 

Many said they faced opposi- 
tion from peers and professors 
because of their beliefs. 

Woods described one situation. 

"I was taking biology, and one 
day I wore this T-shirt — the 
front said, 'Over billions of years, 
single-celled organisms evolved 
into man ... NOT! Genesis 2:7.' 
On the back, it said, 'I believe in 
the Big Bang theory ... God spoke, 
and bang, it was,' " she said. "My 
professor let me know that he

didn't agree with this belief, and 
that I shouldn't wear the T-shirt 

Woods and her professor 
worked through the situation. 

"I went back, and we talked 
things out. I explained that I didn't 
believe as he did, and that I should 
be able to wear what I want," 
Woods said. "He pretty much 
accepted it." 

College's trials tested some 

"There are trials with school 
and girls. School is demanding by 
needinggood grades," Dan Flippo, 
senior in mechanical engineering, 
said. "Trials with girls are mainly 
deciding what is appropriate and 
how to honor them." 

Flippo led the all-male Bible 
study in Marlatt Hall. 

"Having to be bold and strong 
on campus is always tough. That's 
how the Bible study works. It's 
where you can be open," he said. 
"With the fellowship, relation- 
ships can begin." 

Problems and questions arose 

when students had misconceptions 
about Christian beliefs. 

"Basically, there are a lot of 
Christians who don't live a Chris- 
tian life," Flippo said. "And be- 
cause of those people, we are seen 
as hypocrites." 

Joanna McGraw, sophomore 
in animal sciences and industry, 
had another view. 

"Some people view Christians 
as perfect," she said. "We're not 
perfect, by any means — just for- 

Bible studies helped students 
stand up for their beliefs. 

"Just knowing that there was a 
group that believed as I did, that 
there were other Christians — it's 
great," Chad Eck, freshman in 
engineering, said. "To be around 
other Christians and be able to talk 
freely — it was a neat fellowship." 

For Josh Barbe, sophomore in 
arts and sciences, attending a Bible 
study was more than a fellowship 

"It (the Bible study) is awe- 
some," he said. "It was an answer 
to prayer."

he end of a relationship oc- 
casionally turned the magic of 
love into obsessive behavior. 

For one K-State student Sara 
Anderson (not her real name), 
harassment became a way of life. 

"All along I kept breaking up 
(with him) because he was dis- 
playing violent behavior, going 
off for any reason, wanting to be 
with me all the time and calling 
me all the time," she said. 

The situation escalated after 
her boyfriend, who worked at the 
same store as Anderson, moved 
into the same residence hall. 

"One time he grabbed me. He 
threatened to kill me I would 
guess about 100 times," she said. 

Eventually, Anderson sought 
help from the University. 

"On Sept. 7, he knocked on 
my door for 30 minutes. He knew 
I was home, and I filed a report 
with housing," she said. "Every 
day something would happen, it 

Bernard Franklin, dean of stu- 
dent life, and Carla Jones, assistant 
dean of student life, scheduled a 
hearing after Anderson's boyfriend 
failed to comply with the rules. 

"He went off the night before 
(the hearing) and was screaming 
so loud that they could hear him 
on every floor," Anderson said. 
"At the hearing, he was expelled 
from K-State. He had to pack and 
leave that night." 

Anderson felt the harassment 
might have been avoided if she 
had left sooner and cut off all 

"I didn't want to hurt him. We 
were friends, and I lost a boyfriend 

and a friend at the same time. I 
knew all along that this wasn't 
normal, but I just didn't get out," 
she said. "This sort of situation 
doesn't seem serious until the end. " 

Leaving an abusive relation- 
ship was as difficult as asking for 
help, Judy Davis, director of the 
Women's Resource Center said. 

After ending an abusive rela- 
tionship, threats and phone ha- 
rassment sometimes followed. 

"Telephone harassment is par- 
ticularly terrifying for young la- 
dies," Davis said. "That form of 
harassment is the most common 
to college females." 

The University offered students 
counseling at the Women's Re- 
source Center, made legal services 
available to victims of harassment 
and referred students to the Riley 
County Police Department. 

"Stalking is now a crime," Jen- 
nifer Kassebaum, assistant Uni- 
versity attorney, said. "The first 
thing a student should do is report 
it to the police." 

Additional services were avail- 
able to students filing complaints. 
When the suspect was another 
student, the University was put in 
the middle. 

"If the perpetrator is a student 
at KSU, then we may be able to 
get at the student through a Uni- 
versity policy," Davis said. 

The Women's Resource Cen- 
ter assisted students in understand- 
ing their rights, Davis said. 

"We serve students as advo- 
cates while they make decisions, 
some of which are very difficult," 
Davis said. "Usually getting help 
and the first step is the hardest."

student at KSU, then

aced with daily challenges, 
many students with learning dis- 
abilities beat the odds. 

Some learning disability symp- 
toms included confusing num- 
bers and letters, the inability to 
read left to right and difficulty 
holding attention to one task. 

Andrea Blair, learning disabili- 
ties specialist with Disabled Stu- 
dent Services, located in Holton 
201, said a learning disability was 
a permanent disorder. The disor- 
der affected the manner in which 
students with normal or above- 
average intelligence took in, re- 
tained or expressed information. 

"Students come to K-State di- 
agnosed and aware of their dis- 
abilities, but they need to be will- 
ing to work with them," she said. 

Out of the 125 students diag- 
nosed with learning disabilities or 
attention-deficit disorder, the 
most common problem was in 
reading comprehension, Blair said. 

"Many times the disability has 
to do with the visual perception 
or coping strategy," Blair said. 
"Students read the word 'was' as 
'saw' and confuse B's and D's." 

K-State services included writ- 
ing letters to instructors and pro- 
viding note-takers, test-taking ac- 
commodations, taped textbooks 
and tutors. 

"For me, it mainly comes 
down to reading and compre- 
hending," David Yankovich, 
freshman in horticulture and 
landscape design, said. "I receive 
untimed test taking, test readers 
and audiotaped tests." 

Yankovich was diagnosed with 
a learning disability in reading 

comprehension and math and 
started to learn more about the 
disabilities from working with Blair 
and Disabled Student Services. 

Blair said students sometimes 
had difficulties because teachers 
and peers doubted the validity of 
learning disabilities. 

"(LD) is really a hidden handi- 
cap, and hidden handicaps are the 
worst kind because they don't tend 
to be believed, " Blair said. "People 
don't question whether people in 
wheelchairs can participate in

She continued her success at 
college despite her learning dis- 
abilities and the doubts of others. 

"I graduated from K-State in 
3-1/2 years and will have my 
master's completed after five 
years," she said. 

The University provided a posi- 
tive environment for students with 
learning disabilities, she said. 

"When I was in elementary 
school, the kids and the teachers 
made fun of me because I had to 
go to the 'retarded room.' I cried 
forever, and I cried, and I cried," 
Carmichael said. 

"When I came to K-State, I

be mean to me, but nobody was,"

ightening her eyes, she 
clutched the arms of the chair and 
held her breath as the cosmetolo- 
gist moved the gun toward the 
target — her navel. 

Adrienne Simpson, junior in 
dietetics, had her belly button 
pierced during her 1994 spring- 
break trip to Daytona Beach, Fla. 

"I told my friends that if I had 
a chance to do it, I would," 
Simpson said. "It was there at 
Daytona, and they said, 'Here's 
your chance. You can't back out.' 
So, I did it." 

Simpson said she didn't have any 
safety concerns when she got it 

"The guy who did it was a 
professional," she said. "He made 
me sign a contract, and I had to 
read how to take care of it first." 

Cleaning the ring four to five 
times a day was a step Simpson 
took to avoid infection. 

Jason Dana, junior in chemical 
engineering, said it took quite 
awhile for his belly button to heal. 

"It takes a lot longer to heal 
than an ear," Dana said. "Mine's 
just really healed up, but some- 
times it still gets red." 

Another concern about navel 
piercing was religiously oriented, 
said Crystal McCarter, licensed 
cosmetologist at Lords 'n Ladys in 

"Before I do a belly button, I 
make them sign a release. It's not 
that I'm not supposed to do it — 
I mean nothing's ever been said by 
the State Board of Cosmetologists 
if we are or not, but some religious 
groups say that your spirit, when 
you die, comes from out your 

belly button — so, you're not 
supposed to mess with it," 
McCarter said. 

Dana said his soul could get out 
of his body another way and had 
his navel pierced twice. 

"The first 
time, I did it 
myself," he 
said. "It was 
fine, but then I 
played volley- 
ball for tC- 
State's club 
team. I was div- 
ing for the ball 
and landed on 
my belly, and it 
yanked it out. I

body, which he 
wished not to 

"For one thing, I recognize the 
fact that I did it for all the wrong 
reasons under all the wrong con- 
ditions," he said. 

Leonard said the allure of his 
piercing wore off quickly. 

"I showed a couple of people, 
and it was like I had discovered a 
new party trick," he said, "but 
after a while the whole thing got 
to be like watching the Elephant 
Man — it was so grotesque."

onstruction projects and lim-

their cars and into alternative forms 
of transportation. 

This included bicycles, which 
seemed to multiply on campus

Dwain Archer, director ofpark-

crease in bike riders to a lack of 
parking spaces. 

"If we checked with bicycle 
riders, we'd find it's that they don't

in alleviating parking stalls." 

Because of the increased num- 
ber of bike riders, campus police 
began enforcing a $25 fine for 
riding on sidewalks. About 25 bi- 
cyclists gathered in front of Wa- 
ters Hall Sept. 7 to protest the 
regulation and fine. 

After the protest, Ryan Hale, 
junior in biology, led a bike tour 
on campus sidewalks. 

"I think we need to welcome 
those who have alternative forms 
of transportation," Hale said. "Ev- 
ery bicyclist means one more 
empty space in the parking lots." 

Parking services and the Uni- 
versity administration set up a task 
force that mailed more than 1 ,000 
surveys to randomly selected stu- 
dents, faculty and staff during the 
fall. The four solutions on the 

survey included restricting the sale 
of parking permits on the central 
campus, constructing a parking 
garage, implementing a limited 
shuttle or doing nothing. 

Darell Edie, parking council 
for the task force, said the group 
would attempt to implement 
whatever the majority wanted, but 
he also had his ideas of which 
option would work best. 

"The restrictive parking would 
be the lowest option," he said. "I 
would push for the shuttle system 
because of the possible incorpora- 
tion with the city." 

Living within walking distance 
from campus saved Jim Counts, 
senior in architecture, the incon- 
venience of parking on campus. 

"It's a pain to drive. If you 
don't get here by at least 8 in the 
morning, you don't have a place 
to park," Counts said. 

Archer said despite problems 
with parking, only 25 percent of 
students purchased permits. 

Construction projects, such as 
the Farrell Library expansion and 
the building of the Marianna Kistler 
Beach Museum of Art, eliminated 
about 200 parking spaces. 

Parking at Chester E. Peters 
Recreation Complex was con- 
gested because of construction. 

"Cars were lined up all along 
the curb going into the complex, 
and they all had tickets," Mike 
King, sophomore in industrial 
engineering, said. "I understand 
that they don't have as much park- 
ing because of the construction, 
but they shouldn't ticket those 
people who can't find anywhere 
else to park." 

fVtid Campus Drive was con- 
verted to two lanes to help alle- 
viate traffic problems. Many 
parking spaces were lost due to 
construction but additional park- 
ing spaces created along Mid 
Campus Drive helped to com- 
pensate for the lost spaces.

iting historic atmosphere and 
practicality, students and campus 
organizations scheduled recep- 
tions, parties and dances at the 
Wareham Opera House. 

The Wareham, located at 410 
Poyntz Ave. , was originally known 
as the Coliseum. Built in 1882, 
the one-time movie theater was 
remodeled in 1910 and 1938, Kelly 
Goss, Wareham Opera House 
manager, said. 

Many couples had wedding 
receptions at the Wareham each 
year, Goss said. 

Renee and 
'Our ClaSS liked it Parker Young 

had their wed- 
ding reception 
at the Ware- 
ham July 16. 

"We were 
lucky in reserv- 
ing it six 
months in ad- 
vance," Parker 
Young, senior 
in construction 
science, said. 
"You really need to reserve it a 
year ahead of the event." 

The couple weighed their op- 
tions before reserving the facility. 
"After comparing all of the other 
reception facilities in town, we 
chose to have our reception at the 
Wareham because of the size, and 
it just seemed to work out best for 
our budget," Parker Young said. 

Groups paid $650 to rent the 
Wareham for an evening. The cost 
of catering and cleaning services 
for the facility was not included. 
When renting the Wareham, 
groups signed a lease and were 

because it was a good 

location and a big, old

freshman in secondary 

required to clean after the func- 
tion. They also had to pay for any 
items broken during their events. 

The Alpha Xi Delta sorority 
pledges combined their actives' 
party with a Halloween celebra- 
tion. Carrie Collett, freshman in 
secondary education, was in charge 
of the planning committee. 

"Our class liked it because it 
was a good location and a big, old 
building," Collett said. 

One advantage to the Wareham 
was its size, Collett said. 

"It was big and spacious," 
Collett said. "We didn't feel 
packed in, and there was plenty of 
room to walk around and for the 
DJ to set up." 

Delta Delta Delta sorority had 
its philanthropy, Deltapalooza, at 
the Wareham Sept. 30. 

"Several different bands per- 
formed, and all of the proceeds 
from T-shirt and ticket sales are 
donated to Children's Cancer 
Research," Melissa Schetter, 
sophomore in journalism and mass 
communications, said. 

The Wareham also was host to 
bands and plays. The rock band 
Kansas performed to sold-out 
crowds Aug. 30 and 31. 

"It was dark when I got there, 
but it was a beautiful opera house. 
I really love the architecture of 
those older buildings," Tara Fos- 
ter, senior in social work and po- 
litical science, said. 

Foster said the Wareham was a 
good place for a concert. 

"The sound was excellent, but 
loud," Foster said. "There was 
plenty of room to move around, 
and the service was great."

Tourette syndrome in June 1993, Hayden said he

an Hayden barked and howled whenever the piano was played in his music class. 

Harden, sophomore in pre-medicine, was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome 
in June 1993. He said his vocal and motor, tics, like the ones he displayed in his 
music plass, became pronounced during tinges of stress. 

"It seems like whatever I start to think aboi^t when I get upset just seems to come 
out," Hayden said. "Sometimes you can tell you're going to say something, and 
that's more like a compulsion to say it, and sometimes it just flies out of there." 

The disorder was characterized by involuntary, rapid, repeating movements, or 
tics, according to the Tourette Syndrome Association. 

Hayden said he learned some tricks that helped him control his vocal tics. 

"I cton't have much control over them, but it seems like the longer I've had 
Tourette's, the more control I've gained," Hayden said. "It's like knowing what 
to thihjk about and what not to think about. 

"When I see a really good-looking girl on campus, there's a good chance I'll say 
something crude to her, so I'll try to think of something really odd. If I'm walking 
with somebody, I'll try to think the same phrase over and over again like 'This is my 
friend. He's single.' I did that one time at KU, and it worked pretty good." 

Hayden said he had the most trouble making people believe he had the disorder. 

"The hardest thing about having Tourette's is making people understand what 
I have and what causes me to do things and get them to believe that," Hayden said. 
"A lot of times they think I'm joking." 

A business card with his name and information about the disorder was one tool 
Hayden used to help people understand his actions. 

"In some classes, I've had it ready and handy, and at parties I'll have it ready in 
case I do something nuts. They usually think the card's a joke, though," he said. 

Living in Moore Hall was also helpful, Hayden said, because the residents were 
understanding of his condition. 

"Everybody has been real respectful — they don't say anything about shutting 
up when I'm screaming at 2 in the morning," he said. 

Hayden said he became more outgoing after the diagnosis. 

"Before I had developed Tourette's, I was scared of what people thought, so 
I never actually dared to do much. I wasted a lot of time that way."

greyhound, Cinder, to carry his backpack. After a 
near-fatal automobile accident, McCauiey returned 
to K-State and worked as a graduate teaching 
assistant. "Just doing everyday things will wear 
me out," he said. "When it comes time to study, 
I'm already tired." He also made adjustments in 
his hobbies. Because he lost his ability to sweat, 
he couldn't be outside in warm weather. "This is 
hard for me," he said. "I used to be an outdoor 
person. Now, even if it's 70 degrees outside, I 
could overheat." (Photo by Cary Conover)

e can't recall the accident that changed his life. 

Wayne McCauley, graduate student in food science and industry, lost control 
of his 1981 Mustang on Aug. 9, 1991, and crashed into a telephone pole. 

His passenger, Kris Duggan, was thrown from the car and suffered minor injuries, but 
McCauley wasn't as lucky. He was in a coma with fractures to his neck and three vertebrae, 
a bruised spinal cord, a collapsed lung and paralysis from the neck down. 

"That first night I waited outside his room, and his doctor told me he didn't 
expect Wayne to make it through the next 24 hours," Duggan, his fiancee, said. 

Beating his doctor's odds, McCauley woke up to find himself in Topeka's St. 
Francis Hospital and Medical Center with no memory of the crash. 

"Ev^ry time I woke up the first month, they had to tell me about the accident," 
McCauley said. "I was on enough medication that every thing just blurs together." 

Although he regained consciousness, McCauley's prognosis remained uncer- 
tain because he also had pneumonia. 

"The doctors kept telling us they didn't know how much he would recover," 
Duggan said. "I think they kept expecting him to die." 

But McCauley recovered from pneumonia and regained the use of his limbs. 
Six months after the accident, McCauley went home. He continued to make 
progress and returned to K-State in fall 1993 as a full-time student. 

"It took me a while to feel good about myself again," he said. "A lot of it has 
to do with going back to school. It made me realize I can still be successful." 

As he walked to his classes, Cinder, a greyhound and Labrador retriever mix 
carrying a backpack full of books, trotted by his side. 

"There's no way I could go to classes without her," McCauley said. "My books 
make me too off-balance. I have enough problem getting around as it is." 

In May 1994, McCauley received his bachelor of science degree. Realizing he 
could achieve his goals, McCauley started working toward his master's degree 
while serving as a graduate teaching assistant. 

Three years ago, the doctors gave him less than 24 hours to live. Now he takes 
one day at a time. 

"Nothing is the same anymore, but I've taken the attitude that I need to adapt 
or fade away," he said. "I consider myselflucky. Things could be a whole lot worse."

alerie Hernandez-Bell learned the hardest lessons in the classroom of life. 

Years of physical and mental abuse. The loss of two sisters. A niece and nephew 
who witnessed their father raping their mother. A sister who put her own son in 
a bath of hot water, which gaye him second- and third-degree burns. 

"Sometimes it's kind of unbelievable," Hernandez-Bell, freshman in English, 
said. "I feel like when I meft people, I won't be believed. I'm not the only one. 
There are lots of people with these kinds of circumstances." 

Hernandez-Bell's circumstances reached epic proportions Aug. 4, 1993. 

At 3 p4n,, a ddctor told Hernandez-Bell she was pregnant. At 3:03 p.m., her 
sister, Debra, drowned in Tuttle Creek. 

There was no time/for denial. 

Hernandez-Bell reached out to Debra's two children, Jermaine and Deniece, 
now 5 and 4, and rriade a home for them and for her own son, Ramon, now 2. 

In the fall, Hernandez-Bell added 16 hours of coursework to full-time 
motherhood. School was a drain on the family, especially with Hernandez-Bell's 
husband on a two-year military tour in Alaska. 

"Today Deniece asked me, 'Mommy, why are you going to school?' I said, 'To 
get a job.' I want to be a success — a successful writer. I'm afraid of not being self- 
fulfilled. To do that, I have to learn." 

And learn she did. About poetry and Spanish. About tragedy and grief. About 
life and herself. 

"We were abused," she said of the childhood she and her siblings endured. "It's 
a cycle. If you've been abused, you've got a lot of work to do, or you'll definitely 
end up doing it." 

It was a cycle Hernandez-Bell sought to end, both for herself and others. 

"I want to be to the point where I'm helping kids and families and people. 
Success to me means writing my books. I want to eventually write an autobiog- 
raphy. I think I have a story to tell."

the death of her sister Debra during summer 1993, 
she took in her niece and nephew and tried to 
explain their mother's death to them. Because a 
trip to the library uncovered nothing but complex 
books on the topic, Hernandez-Bell decided to 
write a book that explained death on a child's 
level. Her book told of death through the eyes of 
Jermaine. (Photo by Cary Conover)

e spokie loudly with a silent voice. 

Jonathan Winkler, sophomore in mathematics and physics, gestured broadly, 
fingers slicing the air, and gazed intently at the person with whom he was talking. 

"I've been deaf for 15 years now. No one knows why for sure. I remember, 
when I was 4, 1 had a bad headache," he said. "My parents took me to St. Louis for 
tests. That was when the doctors gave up. They knew I had some nerve damage, but 
it is a medical mystery as to what caused it." 

To ;adapt to a world without sound, Winkler tried wearing hearing aids but 
found them more bothersome than beneficial. He said lip-reading was not an 
option because it was not 100-percent accurate. 

Instead, Winkler learned sign language as a means of communicating in a 
hearing world. With the help of interpreters, he attended class and served as a Lou 
Douglas Lecture Series intern. 

When he wasn't in class, Winkler communicated by using the telephone with 
the help of a TDD, or telecommunications device. 

The TDD was hooked to a regular telephone. Winkler typed on a keyboard 
what he wanted to communicate to the person on the other end of the line. 

An operator then spoke what he had written so the person waiting at the other 
end could talk back. 

"I didn't use a phone until I was 13," he said. "I didn't learn to type until then." 

Winkler was an honors student from Southeast High School in Wichita, where 
he was recognized as a National Merit Scholarship Finalist, receiving the highest 
PSAT score in Kansas. In college, he was a member of both the Math Club and 
the Physics Club and was in the Arts and Sciences Honors Program. 

Despite his achievements, Winkler was uncertain about his future. 

"I don't want to be rich," he said. "I would, however, like a comfortable, quiet 
existence with enough to do to keep my mind occupied, and the privilege of 
contributing to the world in some lasting way."

honors student, he was not hindered by his 
hearing impairment and was unsure about what 
he would accomplish after graduation. "I like to

ven after three years in the United States, he still chuckled at American slang. 

"The one phrase I remember is when I would say 'Thank you' and someone 
would say 'You bet.' I thought they were calling me 'bet.' I asked my teacher, and 
she told me it is like saying 'You're welcome,'" said Achmad Wany, an Indonesian 
graduate student in industrial engineering. 

When Wany arrived in America in 1990, he didn't know English and relied on 
his native Indonesian language. 

"I picked up English mostly from television, my professors and some from my 
friends who were Americans," he said. 

Andreina Saez, freshman in industrial engineering, said she immediately 
became involved with the English Language Program when she came to K-State 
from Venezuela. She also attended the New International Student Orientation to 
become familiar with the University and American culture. 

"They talked about everything like our passports or what to do if we want to change 
a class," Saez said. "I just speak a little English — so, I didn't understand a whole lot." 

The two-day orientation program helped I-Cheng Cho, freshman in civil 
engineering, overcome the initial cultural shock. 

"I think the program is a good idea because when I first came to America, I felt 
fear," Cho said. "This is the first country I have been in besides Taiwan." 

To adjust to the language and a new way of life, Wany became involved in the 
Indonesian Student Association. 

"You feel different when you find someone from the same country as you, 
especially when you first get here and your English is not so good," he said. 

Although Wany spoke English fluently after being in America for three years, 
he found slang was more of a challenge than formal English. 

"I don't feel as comfortable as Americans do speaking slang," he said. "I only 
use slang that I'm sure I know the meaning of. I usually make a joke about 'You 
bet' with Indonesian students who have just arrived here in America."

American slang has confused Ac hm ad Wany, 
graduate student in industrial engineering, since 
he moved to the United States in 1 990. Wany said 
the Indonesian language was more formal than 
English. He also believed Americans described 
things differently. "In my country, they go around 
a bit and then get to the point," he said. "We have 
a long introduction to explain something." Wany 
adjusted to his new environment through the help 
of American friends and. professors. (Photo by

fter 10 years of marriage, Randy and Sherry Roepke broke 
generations of tradition and left their farm to make a better life for their family. 

Randy, senior in secondary education, was a student in 1975, but quit school 
to farm. Sherry, senior in elementary education, continued working on her degree 
between having her two older children. 

The Roepkes decided to return to college after the summer flooding of 1993, 
although they had been considering it before the flood. The waters of Tuttle 
Creek, which were usually 1 3 miles from their farm, were just 2 miles away. Sherry 
said terraces on their crop land were rutted so deeply that their daughter, Kellee, 
now 7, could stand in the ruts without being seen. 

They knew they wouldn't lose their farm, but if they were going to make a 
change, they couldn't wait for another bad year. They sold their machinery and 
rented farmland that had been in their family for generations. 

"That's what made it really hard," Sherry said. "I felt like we were the ones who 
broke the chain." 

The Roepke family visited the farm some weekends, but the kids started to call 
the house in town "home." 

Looking back, Sherry said she wished she had gotten her degree before starting 
a family. 

"I wouldn't trade my kids for anything, but it's tough," she said. 

Sherry said she felt guilty for not staying home with her 2-year-old son, Gunnar, 
as she did with her other children when they lived on the farm. In addition to 
college, she did in-house accounting for Cash Lumber and was a Mary Kay 
Cosmetics consultant. She said she didn't have time for outside activities. 

"It's hard to decide what's more important — their things or mine," she said. 

Sherry planned to graduate in December 1 995. Randy wanted to graduate then, 
though he said he might not complete his degree until May 1996. 

"We just want to be comfortable and have time with our family," Sherry said.

n Aggieville bar 
helped get people involved in stu-

More than 50 people gathered 
at Rusty's Last Chance Restau- 
rant & Saloon Sept. 29 to hear 
panel members discuss issues re- 
lating to bicycling and parking. 

Only four people attended the 
previous forum sponsored by Stu- 
dent Government Association, 
Sept. 9. 

Bernard Franklin, assistant dean 
of student life, suggested taking 
forums off-campus, Nabeeha Kazi, 
SGA public relations director and 
junior in political science, said. 

"(SGA) knew it was a risk to 
take the forum to a bar, but they 
were willing to work with me. 
We had to get out of our comfort 
zone," Kazi said. "That's why we 
decided to take a new and differ- 
ent approach." 

Kazi said using other locations 
was a way to increase student at- 
tendance at the forums. 

"The way activities, especially 
forums, have been publicized in 
the past are not reaching all or 
even a majority of students," Kazi 
said. "This has proven to be true 
in the turnout at campus-spon- 
sored events, such as forums. It is 
clear that when four K-State stu- 
dents show up at a forum out of 
the 20,000-plus students we have, 
the entire forum approach is 

The new approaches included 
visits to greek houses and dining 
halls, and advertising the forums 
in the Union, Aggieville and other 
public places. 

Franklin said moving the fo- 

rums out of the Union helped 
SGA gather student opinion and 
discuss relations between students 
and the campus police. 

"I think we should use every 
opportunity to get student's opin- 
ions," he said. 

B.C. Camp II, junior in jour- 
nalism and mass communications, 
was part of the panel and answered 
questions about the incident in 
which he was handcuffed and fined 
after riding his bike on a campus 

"I'm not sure if the campus 
police and student relationship has 
improved," Camp said. "I'm just 
glad it didn't get as bad as it could 
have gotten." 

Terry Teske, computer infor- 
mation specialist and panelist, said 
he believed steps were being taken 
to fix problems caused by the new 
bike regulations. 

"I was impressed by the people 
who came and with the parking 
commissioner. It's too bad it took 
all this to make it happen," he said. 

Mike Clausner, senior in ar- 
chitecture, said he liked having 
the forum at a bar but was unsure 
of the forum's effectiveness. 

"To be honest, I kind of felt 
like some of the questions were 
dodged in a way," Clausner said. 

Wes Revely, junior in me- 
chanical engineering, agreed. 

"At least it was good they came 
out and gave a little of their views. 
I don't know if all the questions 
were answered fully," Revely said. 
"I've been to forums in the Union 
before — it was kind of loud in 
here, but it was a good change of 
pace, anyway."

aser Quest and Virtual Reality 
hit the K-State Union in the fall. 

Could the Velcro Wall Jump 
have been far behind? 

No, said the Union Program 
Council's Special Events Com- 
mittee, which sponsored the Feb. 
1 event at no cost to students. 

"It was off the wall — or I 
guess you could say on the wall," 
Mark Hazlett, junior in construc- 
tion science and management, 
said. "I was in gymnastics for eight 
years and diving for three, so it 
was a strange sensation to be in a 
flip and be stopped cold." 

The event took place from 11 
a.m. to 3 p.m. Renting the wall 
from Funny Business on Campus 
cost $900. 

"It is a pretty cheap event," 
Sharon Willits, UPC program 
adviser, said. "People stop and 
look, so hopefully they will stop 
and try it." 

And try it they did. 

Clad in Velcro body suits, par- 
ticipants ran across the Union 
Courtyard and jumped onto an 
inflated platform, flinging them- 
selves against the Velcro wall. 

"I slipped and fell the first 
time," Brandon Hobbs, freshman 
in chemical engineering, said. 
"They told me to jump to the 
black bubble for the best jump. It 
was hard clearing the first part. 

"I felt the Velcro hit me, and 
then I just stuck there." 

Darrol Walker, junior in fine 
arts, had been jumping on the 
wall for 15 minutes and said he 
planned to continue until some- 
one else needed his Velcro suit. 

"I always wanted to try it," 

Walker said. "I've seen it before 
on television. 

"I'm going to make it a point 
to see how high I can go," he said. 
"I'm going to try to grab the top." 

Jason Landreth, freshman in 
arts and sciences, said a poster in 
Haymaker Hall piqued his interest 
in the wall jump. 

"It's not as fun as bungeejump- 
ing," Landreth said. "Bungee 
jumping is just free-falling. This 
was cool, though." 

Christina Sloan, freshman in 
arts and sciences, didn't share 
Landreth's enthusiasm at first. 
While preparing herself mentally 
for her first jump, she told other 
students to pass her in line. 

After summoning courage, 
Sloan took on the wall. 

"It was very embarrassing," she 
said. "I couldn'tjump on the black 
thing. I'm not tall enough, I guess." 

Eric Bohn, junior in psychol- 
ogy, also found the wall daunting. 

"It was difficult," he said. "I 
don't have enough spring." 

But that didn't keep Bohn or 
Sloan from trying again and again. 

"Anything's fun with Velcro," 
Bohn said. 

Anthony Hanson, senior in 
construction science, said he took 
part because of the novelty of the 

"I did it because I wanted to say 
I've jumped on a wall and stuck. It 
was a new experiment." 

Hanson skinned his knees dur- 
ing the wall jump, but he said the 
pain didn't deter him. 

"Everyone should have to do 
something they haven't done at 
least once in their life." 

It was off the wall — 

or I guess you could 
say on the wall. I was 
in gymnastics for eight 
years and diving for 

three, so it was a 

strange sensation to be 
in a flip and be stopped

ood served Union style was 
fast becoming a thing of the past as 
the possibility of a franchise take- 
over drew closer to reality. 

Breaking even, as a philoso- 
phy, wasn't working for Union 
Food Services, and a change in 
general operations that would 
make the organization a money- 
making business began to take 

"It all comes down to money," 
Malley Sisson, director of food 
services, said. "The current food 
services aren't generating enough 
revenue, and revenue is the top 

With an emphasis on quality 
service, the Union also used its 
food services as a training ground 
for students in any type of food 
studies, Sisson said. 

But in the event of a takeover 
by a contract management com- 
pany, Union employees would 
lose control of food services in 
favor of making money. 

"Money generated could be 
turned back to students, but with 
contract management companies, 
the money will leave campus," 
Sisson said. 

Increasing revenue raised by 
food services was crucial, she said, 
in avoiding a student fee increase. 

"My tendency has always been 
to keep the tradition of self-op- 
eration, but costs have gone up," 
Jack Connaughton, associate di- 
rector of the Union, said. 

In the spring, the Union 
brought Subway Sandwiches & 
Salads into the recreational area, 
with the possibility of more fran- 
chises to come. 

Jack Sills, Union director, said 
revenues from franchises such as 
Subway would help support other 
areas of the Union. 

But, Becky Lind, Union State- 
room supervisor, said, "I think 
there would be a lot of disap- 
pointed students if we lost our 
breakfast line due to other ser- 

Michael DiDio, senior in elec- 
trical engineering, said he thought 
turning the Union food services 
over to an outside company might 
be advantageous. 

"I'd like to see Burger King 
and Taco Bell come in," DiDio 
said. "I don't think it'd be bad, 
unless they didn't care about the 
students as much." 

As someone who ate in the 
Union two or three times a month, 
Bill Sharp, junior in finance, said 
he would like Taco Bell and 
McDonald's to join the Union's 
new food services. 

"Maybe an outside voice 
wouldn't hurt the Union," he said. 
"It'd show another view on 

Fast food in the Union would 
make eating between classes easier, 
Sharp said, although he said he 
would miss the breakfasts made by 
food services. 

"I would miss the diversity of 
the food that is offered," Bonnie 
Nettles, junior in psychology, said. 
"If it went to franchises, it would 
be fast food instead of healthy 
food, like it is now." 

Terra Marten, junior in sec- 
ondary education and Union 
Bookstore employee, also opposed 
franchising Union food services. 

"I think it's fine the way it is 
because you never know what 
someone might do once they get 
control of it," Marten said. 

"Every time I'm in here, I get 
a sandwich and a piece of pie. If 
they changed that, I'd have to hurt

etting wired was fast becom- 
ing a way of life on campus. 

Internet activity skyrocketed 
during the year, Brick Verser, 
Computing and Network Ser- 
vices associate specialist, said. 

"There are more user IDs this 
(spring) semester than any other 
semester," Verser said. "There's 
just so much information super- 
highway glitz that everyone wants 
to know what it is." 

The Kansas State Collegian 
jumped onto the Internet during 
the summer as the first daily col- 
lege newspaper to go electronic. 

The E-Collegian attracted stu- 
dents on campus but was espe- 
cially useful to alumni, students 
studying abroad and students on 
the Sahna campus, said Mike 
Marlett, the first E-Collegian edi- 
tor and senior in journalism and 
mass communications and art. 

"A lot do it from computer 
labs here on campus, which I 
think is interesting," he said. "A 
stack of papers is 20 feet from 
them, yet they choose to turn 
their computers on and read the 
Collegian that way." 

But the main group of E-Col- 
legian readers was alumni, he said. 

"Distance is irrelevant," 
Marlett said. "It doesn't matter. 
As long as you've got a telephone 
line, the right software and a com- 
puter, you're good to go." 

Internet access was not limited 
to reading the E-Collegian. 

Chris Zelch, junior in bakery 
science and management, used 
his Unix account to talk to his 
girlfriend in St. Louis daily. 

"It's cheap, it's free, it's fast. 

and you get it the same day instead 
of having to wait for two days for 
snail mail," he said. 

Sarah Kanning, graduate stu- 
dent in English, used the Internet 
for e-mail, discussion groups and 

"You just have instantaneous 
access to so many different kinds 
of information in so many forms 
that it's astounding, astonishing," 
Kanning said. "There's also a lot 
of literary stuff, culture and politi- 
cal communication around in dif- 
ferent places. It's not just com- 
puter people." 

Jeff Bohning, junior in theater, 
said he spent more time on the 
Internet than he did sleeping. 

One of Bohning's favorite di- 
versions was being in charge of a 
division of a Usenet newsgroup, 
alt. barney, dinosaur, die. die. die, 
that advocated the death ofBarney, 
a purple dinosaur and popular 
children's TV show character. 

"We're fighting for member- 
ship, fighting against Barney, fight- 
ing against other newsgroups," he 

Internet access also served as a 
stress reliever for Bohning. 

"With as much stress as I get in 
my life anyway, this stops me from 
going out and strangling people," 
he said. "The other thing is to 
keep me from being bored." 

Internet activities varied as 
much as the people who used it. 

"The possibilities were pretty 
much limitless," Kelly Campbell, 
junior in computer science who 
helped start the E-Collegian, said.

— Ross Perot, 

1992 presidential candidate 
and 99th Landon Lecturer 

oss Perot's Jan. 24 Landon 
Lecture diverged from his politi- 
cal views to less controversial 
matters including bad hair days 
and the road to happiness. 

"Some of you got up this 
morning and said, 'Oh, gee, I 
have to go to class.' Some of you 
looked in the mirror and said, 'It's 
a bad hair day,'" Perot said. 

"You ought to get up every 
morning and look in the mirror 
and say, 'Boy, am I lucky,' be- 
cause you just, by the happy acci- 
dent of good luck, live in the 
country that everybody else in the 
world dreams of coming to some 
day. And on top of that, you're in 

An estimated 5,500 people at- 
tended the 99th Landon Lecture, 
"Defining Success," in which Perot 
emphasized the importance of a 
college education, noting that 65 
million people in the work force 
struggled to make a living with a 
high-school diploma or less. 

"I don't want you to ever for- 
get that people who are out there 
working their hearts out, the po- 
licemen, the firemen, the electri- 
cians, the carpenters, the wait- 
resses, the janitors, are giving you 
this great opportunity," he said, 
"and please when you see them, 
never feel cocky. Just feel lucky 
that you're getting off on the right 
foot in life." 

Perot warned against arrogance 
and urged students to remember 
that success comes from knowing 
one's strengths and weaknesses. 

"Go through life being a giver, 
not a taker. We just came out of 
the 'Me Generation,' and I hope 

we're headed into the 'We Gen- 
eration' that gets us back to the 
basics that made this country great. " 

Perhaps the country remem- 
bered Perot best as the indepen- 
dent candidate who ran for the 
presidency in 1992. He received 
20 percent of the vote in Kansas. 

If he could have voted in 1992, 
Andy King, freshman in business 
administration, said he would have 
supported Perot's bid. 

"He comes from the common 
people," King said. "He came from 
the bottom." 

Jason Healy, senior in mechani- 
cal engineering, said he thought 
Perot's speech was right on target. 

"He's a down-home boy," 
Healy said. "He tells it like it is." 
But Perot's speech lacked the 
political content Matt Lynch, jun- 
ior in sociology, expected to hear. 

"I thought it was a little pa- 
thetic," Lynch said. "I thought he 
gave the United We Stand people 
who were here what they wanted 
to hear. 

"When he said, 'This speech is 
for the students,' I guess for me, I 
didn't see it that way. I've had 
better lectures from my professors 
at K-State." 

But a Perot supporter who had 
voted for him said she found the 
speech thought-provoking. 

"He was very helpful in think- 
ing about my career and what I 
want to do — to never give up if 
you're down," Shari Hartman, se- 
nior in marketing, said. 

"Success isn't money. I think a 
lot of people have a problem with 
that, but it's what you do with your 
life, and what you do for others." 

Koss Perot 
said he didn't 
need security 
during the 
1992 presi- 
dential cam- 
paign because 
the other can- 
didates were 
and every- 
body loved 
him. Above: A

raduation in the winter added 
to the hustle and bustle of the 
holiday season for the 1,160 stu- 
dents who participated in the cer- 

Spring graduation took place 
May 12-13, while winter gradua- 
tion occurred in one day, Dec. 10, 
with all colleges represented. 

"Everyone was concerned 
about Christmas," Lesa Beck, 
graduate in food science, said. 
"Graduation just seemed like one 
of those extra things added onto 
the holiday commotion. 

"My brother goes to KU, and 
he graduated this winter, also. 
They don't have a graduation cer- 
emony there, and my parents 
thought that it was really neat that 
K-State does have one." 

For Beck, changing her major 
three times extended the four- 
year road to graduation. 

"I didn't want to wait until 
May," she said. "I wanted to get 
out as soon as possible." 

Four years wasn't enough time 
for Anissa Selbach, graduate in 
elementary education, either. 

"If I could have chosen to gradu- 
ate last May, I would've because I 
wanted to graduate in four years. 
I'm in education, and as far as the 
job market goes, there is really no 
advantage to graduating in De- 
cember," Selbach said. 

Kimberlie Murphy, graduate 
in hotel and restaurant manage- 
ment, said she didn't want to go 
through the ceremony at first. 

"I initially hadn't planned on 
going through the ceremony, but 
I'm glad I did because it was well 
organized and went really smooth," 

by the Royal Purple staff 

she said. "It was well worth it." 

Graduating in winter helped 
Murphy in her job search, she said. 

"Companies seem to be more 
open and available with inter- 
views," she said. "They are just 
overwhelmed in May." 

Because winter graduation took 
place so close to the holidays, 
Troy Smith, graduate in manage- 
ment, decided to postpone going 
through the ceremony until May. 
But December was still a time of 
celebration for Smith. 

"It made me feel like I had 
accomplished something that no- 
body could ever take away," 
Smith said. 

For others, the ceremony had 
its drawbacks. 

"I was a little disappointed with 
winter graduation," Romes said. 

He said he would have pre- 
ferred the spring graduation, in 
which more time was given to 
recognizing each graduate. 

"I think the memory of gradu- 
ation would have been better for 
my family and I if the University 
would have talked about my ac- 
complishments rather than just 
reading my name off," he said. 

Brian Schroeder, graduate in 
social science, said he preferred K- 
State's graduation to that of other 
universities' ceremonies, some of 
which did not let students walk 
across a stage. 

"All they do is stand up and 
then sit back down — wow!" he 
said. "K-State's graduation cer- 
emonies allow the graduate to ac- 
tually walk across the stage in 
Bramlage Coliseum and shake 
President Jon Wefald's hand."

hough few met him, Harry 
Erickson's words touched part of 
every Wildcat fan's life. 

Some knew all his words. Oth- 
ers knew only the last four: "... 
Wildcat victory — go, State!" 

These words were from the 
Wildcat Fight Song, which 
Erickson composed in 1927. 

In the 1920s, Erickson was a 
K-State student who played in a 
dance band. That experience in- 
spired him to write the fight song, 
Erickson's widow, Carol, said. 

"He composed the song while 
coming home from a dance one 
night. It just came to him. When 
he got to his apartment, he wrote 
out the music for it." 

Despite being afflicted with 
Alzheimer's disease and cancer, 
which claimed one of his legs, 
Harry Erickson continued to play 
the fight song. 

"His feeble fingers would find 
the tune on the keyboard," she 
said. "He could still play that." 

Although the Alzheimer's dis- 
ease was advancing, he couldn't 
forget the years of playing music 
he loved, she said. 

"There were a few songs his 
brain could remember," she said. 
"We'd wheel him up to the pi- 
ano. It was sad. It was really sad." 

In August 1994, Harry 
Erickson died. But the song he 
wrote for K-State would live on. 

"There's definitely a sense of 
pride and school unity, "Jill Pruitt, 
K-State Marching Band member 
and senior in music education, 
said. "I feel like when we play it, 
we exemplify purple all over. I 
think it's great." 

Greg Scofield, senior in me- 
chanical engineering, said the band 
treated the fight song as a tradi- 
tional piece, like the alma mater. 

A member of the band's drum 
line, Scofield said the fight song 
offered variety for members who 
played percussion instruments. 

"As the instruments evolved 
since 1927, the music had to evolve 
with it," he said. "Every four of 
five years, we revamp the music. 
It's kind ofkept up with the times." 

Frank Tracz, director of bands, 
said the Wildcat Fight Song should 
be ranked alongside such classics 
as "On, Wisconsin" and the Notre 
Dame Fight Song. 

"This one is good. It's even 
better that a student at K-State 
wrote it. It's got heart and soul." 

Tracz made a tape of the band 
playing the fight song, the alma 
mater and some jazz selections. 
He sent it to Carol Erickson, who 
played it to her husband in his 
nursing home. 

At the time, she was afraid he 
wouldn't be able to comprehend 
it, but his response was surprising. 

"He actually started directing 
it. It was one of those things still 
left in his mind," she said. "He 
couldn't sing, but he'd move, di- 
rect to it and smile. Harry knew it 
was his song." 

Three weeks later, Harry died. 

The same recording of the 
marching band was played at his

edged him well while he was

brush with the 
law may have seemed like the 
wrong way to start a business, but 
it didn't stop Randy Harris. 

"The first thing I did was make 
up a flier on my computer. I took 
them to the mall and handed out 
about 500 of them," Harris, owner 
of Randy's Recycling Service and 
senior in physical education, said. 

"I got a call later that after- 
noon, and it was a security guard 
telling me I couldn't do that any- 

His service, collecting recy- 
clable materials twice a month, 
cost his customers $5 each month. 
Harris said although his business 
wasn't financially rewarding, it 
was rewarding in other ways. 

"There's so many benefits that 
come from recycling," he said. 
"Hopefully, this is making it more 
convenient for people who want 
to recycle." 

The idea for the business came 
from his summer job. 

"It all started this summer when 
I was employed part-time at 
Howie's Recycling," Harris said. 
"I'm friends with (owner) Howard 
(Wilson) and his family. I men- 
tioned it to them and asked if they 
thought it would work." 

During the summer, Harris 
traveled to Columbia, Mo., and 
Louisville, Ky., to watch how

Harris said he had only about 
20 customers until the Collegian

"When the Collegian first did 
the article about me, that got 
awareness up," he said. 

"The free advertising really 
helped out. Now, I have about 80 
customers on a monthly basis." 

Harris also got his message to 
the public with a booth in front of 
the Union and by having newspa-

Overall, Harris said, his cus- 
tomers thought the service was a 
great idea. 

"They do a good job about 
telling people and giving verbal 
references to me," Harris said. 

"This has made it easier for 
them to spend Saturday afternoon 
doing something else instead of 
hauling their own recyclables." 

Sarah Page, junior in horticul- 
ture, started using Harris' service 
as soon as she heard about it. 

"It's something that I wouldn't 
expect from a town as small as 
Manhattan," Page said. 

"I'm from Topeka, and they 
don't even have a service like it 

Robert Everard, senior in fish- 
eries and wildlife biology, said he 
thought the business was benefi- 
cial because college students gen- 
erated so much trash. 

"Before this, I tried to recycle, 
but it was difficult because you 
had to take it somewhere, " Everard 

"This is so convenient for col- 
lege students. I think it makes 
more of us want to recycle."

Getting on with life. 

These suggestions helped sus- 
tain the survivors of the three 
students who committed suicide 
between June 1994 and January 

Another two student deaths 
were still under investigation as 
possible suicides. 

"When you find someone you 
love dead, all you want to do is 
reach for them and have them 
reach back," Wendy Kyle, gradu- 
ate student in history, said. 

"It's a lot harder to live than to 

Her husband, Giles Kyle, died 
Oct. 10 after ingesting a mixture 
of prescription drugs, alcohol and 

The couple had been married 
for almost two years when Giles 
Kyle died. Wendy Kyle said the 
two met in a philosophy class 
during summer 1990. 

"When I first met him, he was 
definitely a philosophy major," 
she said. "He was into all the 
philosophers — Kant, Dost- 
oyevsky and so on." 

He also enjoyed writing. 

"He'd come up with the 
strangest metaphors, but once he 
said them, you realized that they 
made perfect sense," she said. 

Kyle said her husband was 
caring and always concerned with 
others' well-being. 

"He found it painful to lose 
friends. College is a transitory time 
when many people graduate and 
move on out of your life. 

"He didn't want to go on hurt- 
ing people," he said. "He wasn't 
hurting them, but he felt like he 
was. He wanted to enjoy life his 
whole life and not end up in a rut. 
He was always in a hurry to get 
somewhere. But once he got there, 
he wasn't sure what to do." 

Friends of Ann Wallis were 
unsure of what to do when the 
junior in psychology diedjuly 4 of 
a drug overdose. Though investi- 
gators could not conclude her 
death was a suicide, Wallis' friends 
coped with that possibility. 

Steve Quackenbush, graduate 
student in psychology, was friends 
with Wallis for about five years. 
Both were psychology majors and 
met each other through mutual 

"She was very, very outgoing, 
probably the most outgoing per- 
son I knew. She was very inter- 
ested in learning," he said. 

Wallis was interested in race 
relations, participated in Racial 
and Ethnic Harmony Week, and 
liked to read often, Quackenbush 
said. Wallis had left school and 
worked in Topeka before return- 
ing for the spring 1994 semester. 

"When someone commits sui- 
cide, a — you're not completely 
responsible, and b — you're not 
completely free from blame, ei- 
ther," Quackenbush said. 

"A person can only exist in a 
social context. Suicide is an an- 
swer to the social situation they 
want to escape from."

"She hurt so badly, she wanted 
a quick way out," she said. 

Rupp-Whitson, graduate stu- 
dent in sociology, died from in- 
gesting a combination of cyanide 
and Valium Oct. 23. 

Rupp said her daughter had 
been friends with Giles Kyle. 

"At the time Giles died, this 
threw her into a somersault." 

Rupp-Whitson had been di- 
agnosed as being a manic depres- 
sive in the March or April preced- 
ing her death, Rupp said. 

"It's (depression) something 
that can't be cured," Rupp said.

Rupp said Rupp-Whitson had 
been taking Prozac, but she en-

taking the drug because she 
thought it was not doing her any 

"She went back to the doctor 
to get off of it, and he told her she 
had not been taking it long 
enough," she said. 

Rupp-Whitson attempted sui- 
cide by taking Valium but was 
rushed to Memorial Hospital, 
where she underwent a 10-day 

Following her hospitalization, 
Rupp said her daughter again 
obtained Valium. 

Rupp-Whitson used this 
Valium and cyanide to kill herself. 

She left behind three children. 

"The only thing we can do 
now is concentrate on the 25 
good years we had, and we do 
have three wonderful grandchil- 
dren," Rupp said. "The oldest 
one looks just like her." 

Concentrating on the good 
times and moving forward with 
life was how Nizar Kafity, sopho- 
more in microbiology, said he 
dealt with his friend's suicide. 

Ross Taton, sophomore in en- 
gineering, died from what inves- 
tigators considered a self-inflicted 
stab wound Jan. 10. 

Kafity said he had known Taton 
for about a year and a half before 
he and a friend discovered Taton 

in a Goodnow Hall corridor 
around 3 a.m. 

"I thought he was going to 
make it," he said. "Death was the 
furthest thing from my head. Just 
the thought of having someone 
around three, four hours ago, and 
then they're gone, is shocking." 

He said he went through a 
period of depression following 
Taton's death, but friends helped 
him deal with his feelings. 

"I talked to his mom, and his 
mom said she wanted us to go on 
with our lives," he said. 

Kafity said a part of him would 
always be affected by Taton's death. 

"I wish no one will have to pass 
through this experience," Kafity

Campus safety questioned 

Safety concerns emerged on 
campus with the Jan. 9 news that 
Ross Taton, sophomore in engi- 
neering, had died of a stab wound 
to the chest. 

As a result of the incident, secu- 
rity measures went into high gear. 

"The police have increased their 
presence on campus," Shah Hasan, 
assistant director of the Department 
of Housing and Dining Services, 
said, "and we have asked staff to 
spend more time with the students." 

Investigators were still trying to 
determine whether Taton's death 

was homicide or suicide. While 
students awaited news of the cause 
of Taton's death, another incident 
renewed safety concerns. 

Chris Reeves, junior in history, 
was beaten Jan. 22 in City Park by 
a group of attackers as he was walk- 
ing home from a computer lab. 

Five men were arrested in con- 
nection with two attacks that oc- 
curred Jan. 22. Reeves said the 
evidence was clearly against them. 

"If you do something wrong, 
you're going to get busted," he said. 
"Sorry, guys, you made a mistake."

Campus police took to bicycles 
in the fall to become more visible. 

Instituted by campus police, 
the full-time bike patrol began 
Aug. 29 with two 2 1 -speed moun- 
tain bikes. 

"Generally, police departments 
are reactive, " Dave Springer, a bike 
patrol officer, said. "We'll get out 
in the community and get involved. 
Hopefully, we'll prevent some situ- 
ations just by being there." 

While the patrol's intent was 
involvement, an incident in the fall 
temporarily suspended the patrol. 

B. C. Camp, junior in journal- 
ism and mass communications, was 
stopped Aug. 30 by the patrol 
while riding on campus. After fail- 
ing to produce identification, 
Camp was taken to the campus 
police department, where he was 
given tickets for disobeying a law 
enforcement officer, obstructing 
the legal process and riding a bi- 

cycle on campus sidewalks. 

"I was embarrassed," Camp 
said. "I honestly was not trying to 
be rude or anything." 

Camp said he was handled 
roughly by the police officer who 
handcuffed him, but police Capt. 
Robert Mellgren said Camp was 
handcuffed for refusing to cooper- 
ate with Officer Bob Fenton. 

Because of the incident, the 
campus bike patrol was suspended 
for two weeks. John Lambert, di- 
rector of public safety, said he 
suspended the patrol because he 
thought Fenton had overreacted. 

Before the bike patrol was rein- 
stated Sept. 15, students protested 
its enforcement of a $25 fine for 
riding on campus sidewalks. 

"They had good intentions, es- 
pecially with the rapes on campus," 
Anson Renshaw, fifth-year student 
in interior architecture, said. "Over- 
all, it was a good idea, but just to go 
after bicycles is kind of silly."

City annexes campus, causes tax increase 

by Brooke Graber 

K-State became part of the 
City of Manhattan July 3, 1994. 

Annexation of the University 
led to the proposal of several joint 
projects by the city and K-State. 

The annexation resulted in a 
1.5-cent tax increase for all previ- 
ously taxed items sold on campus. 

Mike Zamrzla, student body 
chief of staff, said students were 
informed before student govern- 
ment voted 58-1 for annexation. 

"We don't want long-term needs 
to be lost in the process," Zamrzla 
said. "We are very appreciative to 
be included in the process." 

The additional revenue would 
fund proposed city and University 
projects such as additional street 
lighting; more bicycle racks and 
routes; an electronic link from 
Farrell Library to the Manhattan 
Public Library; and scholarships. 

Robert Krause, vice president 
for institutional advancement, 

said annexation gave students op- 
portunities by classifying them as 
Manhattan residents. 

"One of the interesting things 
that I was excited about was for 
students to have the opportunity 
to become involved in city gov- 
ernment," Krause said. 

Justin Kastner, junior in food 
science and industry, used the 
opportunity to get involved and 
placed first in the Feb. 28 primary 
election for city commission.

Kastner leads candidates in City Commission race 

by R.J. Diepenbrock 

After campus became part of 
the City of Manhattan, one K- 
State student sought to become a 
leader in city government. 

Justin Kastner, junior in food 
science and industry, placed first 
in the Feb. 28 primary election 
with 2,469 of the 4,665 votes cast. 
Incumbent commissioner Steve 
Hall placed second with 2,273. 

"It's really incredible," Kastner, 
19, said shortly after the results 
were in. "I've always wanted to 
do something in public service, 
and I really feel I have a stake in 
the future of our community." 

Kastner, a lifelong Manhattan 
resident, said his decision to run 
was solidified in the fall. 

"I served on the annexation 

committee and the University 
Projects Fund's committee," he 
said. "That was my one opportu- 
nity in my life that I got to see 
how City Commission and city 
staff worked together and the 
mechanics of how they provide 
services to the community. And, 
I really saw a place where I could 
provide something, and that's 
why I decided to run." 

During the campaign, Kastner 
said he learned about the com- 
munity and about himself. 

"First of all, I thought I was 
organized, but I'm not," he said. 
"I learned a lot about my com- 
munity, as far as who knows 
who. I've learned that every- 
body's vote is equal. 

"Also, I've learned a greater 

respect for people that campaign 
and do this because it really is a 
demanding activity. It's an in- 
tense process." 

With the primary election 
over, the next step was the April 
4 general election. Kastner said 
he saw economic and social prob- 
lems that he hoped to tackle if 

Even though he had started 
down the road of politics, Kastner 
said he recognized he was still a 

"Just like everyone else has 
jobs on the City Commission, my 
job right now is school," Kastner 
said. "And it's a challenge to do 
both, but it's very manageable. I 
positioned myself to be able to do 
this, as far as school."

Partisan differences set a* 

by the Royal Purple staff 

Partisan differences were put 
aside in November as members of 
College Republicans and Young 
Democrats came together to sup- 
port the candidate of their choice. 

Michelle Smith, president of 
Young Democrats and senior in 
political science, said two campus 
organizations chose tojointly cam- 
paign for democratic gubernato- 
rial candidate Jim Slattery, U.S. 
representative from Kansas' 2nd 

"They chose a candidate that 
they felt would best represent the 
state — someone both parties could 
agree on, and someone who was 
good for the state," Smith said. 

During the effort for Slattery, 
members distributed literature, 
posted yard signs and took to the 
phone lines for their candidate. 

Lessons learned in the campaign 
proved beneficial for the students 
who got involved, Smith said. 

"Any time students get in- 
volved, it is an accomplishment," 
she said. "They learn how the 
process works, and they see the 
people behind the elections. 

"They learned that it's not all

Fort Riley status uncertain, concerns ROTC members 

by Tawnya Ernst 

Military downsizing threatened 
the symbiotic relationship between 
Army ROTC and Fort Riley. 

ROTC depended heavily on 
Fort Riley for training support in 
the form of equipment, land and 
help from the soldiers themselves, 
Capt. Allen West, assistant profes- 
sor of military science, said. 

"We utilize resources at Fort 
Riley just as much as any unit 
assigned to that base," West said. 
"We are a part of that post." 

Discussions about a downsizing 
or closure of the fort caused con- 
cern among ROTC students and 

"We would be hurt pretty badly 
if the First Division were to leave," 
Capt. Stephen Payne, assistant pro- 
fessor of military science, said. "It's a 

tactical division that has all the equip- 
ment we like to use for training." 

K-State was one of the few 
schools with ROTC programs that 
had the advantage of a nearby 
base, Dave Farmer, Air Force 
ROTC cadet and senior in man- 
agement, said. 

"The ROTC has the training 
facilities right here," Farmer said. 
"We have access to those facilities 
that other schools don't have. That 
gives us an edge over them." 

ROTC used M-16s, M-249s, 
Hummer utility trucks, UH60 
helicopters, training land and rifle 
ranges made available by the pres- 
ence of the base, West said. 

Instructors in the military sci- 
ence department from Fort Riley 
were another educational resource 
for ROTC students. 

If the fort closed, opportunities 
fur instructors with military ex- 
pertise and an understanding of 
the community 
would be diffi- 
cult to come by, 
West said. 

"We would 
stand to lose 
available cadre 
or instructors 
that already 
know Fort 
Riley," he said. 
"It would take 
the Army a lot 
more money to 
bring a person 
here with com- 
bat experience 
and leadership experience that is 
needed without the base close by."

Grunge icon dead; 
fans mourn loss 

by Nora Donaghy 

Just three years after his emer- 
gence as a powerful new force in 
music, Kurt Cobain's April 5, 1994, 
suicide left fans and critics compar- 
ing the guitarist to other ground- 
breaking musicians who died young. 

Cobain, lead singer of the popu- 
lar grunge rock band Nirvana, was 
found dead of a self-inflicted gun- 
shot wound April 8 at his Seattle 
home. He was 27. 

Dan Paeper, sophomore in fi- 
nance, said he regretted the short- 
ened legacy Cobain's suicide left. 

"I respected his music a lot be- 
cause it spoke to me," Paeper said. 
"Kurt Cobain was to our genera- 
tion what John Lennon was to our 
parents' generation. They were two 
of the greatest songwriters of all 
time. People related to them like 
they related to their best friend. 

"He had so much more left to 
accomplish that he hadn't even 
touched yet."

Reagan discloses illness to increase awareness 

In a handwritten letter to his 
fellow Americans, former Presi- 
dent Reagan disclosed Nov. 5 
that he suffered from Alzheimer's 

Reagan, 83, wrote that he was 
feeling fine, but he and his wife, 
Nancy, chose to reveal the diag- 
nosis to increase awareness of the 
mind-crippling disease that af- 
flicted 4 million Americans and 
claimed 100,000 lives each year. 

"Unfortunately, as Alzheimer's 
disease progresses, the family of- 
ten bears a heavy burden," Reagan 
wrote. "I only wish there was 

some way I could spare Nancy 
from this painful experience. 
When the time comes, I am con- 
fident that with your help she will 
face it with faith and courage." 

One student who worked for 
the Reagan presidential campaign 
as a fifth-grader said the nation's 
40th president was his idol. 

"When I lived in Texas, 
people thought it was cute that a 
10-year-old was working on the 
election campaign, so they asked 
me to be in a commercial with 
Ronald Reagan," Pat Carney, 
senior in political science, said. 

Carney said Reagan's afflic- 
tion didn't change his opinion of 
the former president. 

"It made me wonder just how 
long he had it while in office, but 
I don't think it took away from 
his years as president," Carney 
said. "When I look back through 
the history books, I found out 
that he's not nearly as impressive 
as I thought he was then, but as a 
fifth-grader, I thought Reagan 
was God. It was exciting for me 
to look up and see a person who 
would be the future president of 
the United States."

Trial sparks awareness 

by Wade Sisson 

It was a tale of utter violence 
that gripped the nation. 

A bloody glove. A wailing 
Akita. The gored bodies of Nicole 
Brown Simpson, 35, and Ronald 
Lyle Goldman, 25. 

And with the arrest and court 
appearances of O.J. Simpson, ac- 
cused of killing his ex- wife and her 
friend June 12, the drama unfolded 
to reveal tales of the spousal abuse 
Nicole suffered at the hands of O.J. 

As the nation heard the domes- 
tic-violence statistics, Lin Huff- 
Corzine, associate professor of soci- 
ology, looked at local numbers. 

"When O.J. was arrested for 
beating Nicole, there was no re- 
sponse because it's something that 
is routine," Huff-Corzine said. "It 
was kept hush-hush because it was 
considered a private thing. 

"It's really not unusual that 
husbands beat their wives. It's re- 

ally not unusual that husbands kill 
their wives," she said. "We tend 
not to know that." 

In 1994, 2,993 people called 
Manhattan's Crisis Center to re- 
port sexual assault. Of those call- 
ers, 249 spent a collective 4,150 
nights at the center. 

MelanieBrockington, outreach 
coordinator for the Crisis Center, 
said awareness about home-grown 
violence had increased. 

"Hopefully, people are recog- 
nizing patterns in their relation- 
ships or people they know," 
Brockington said. 

Huff-Corzine, who specialized 
in criminology, said lessons could 
be learned from the Simpson case. 

"You can look at anything from 
how you choose a jury to how 
people might pose an opening 
statement," Huff-Corzine said. 
"There's a lot of things a person 
can learn from this." 

America's political past revisited with deaths of Nixon, Onassis, Kennedy

America said goodbye to three 
prominent figures from its past. 

Richard Nixon, who resigned 
the presidency in 1974, died April 
22, 1994, after suffering a stroke. 
He was 81. 

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, 
First Lady during JFK's years in 
the White House, died May 19 of 
cancer at age 64. 

The Kennedy family suffered 
another loss Jan. 22 with the death 
of matriarch Rose Kennedy, who 
was 104. 

With the loss of Onassis and 
Nixon, Sue Zschoche, assistant 

professor of history, was reminded 
of the contrasts between the 
Kennedy and Nixon eras. 

"I saw the canonization of Ri- 
chard Nixon as bizarre," said 
Zschoche, who thought Watergate 
was an undeniable part of the 
Nixon story. 

"I don't see how anyone could 
look at him at the time of his death 
and ignore that little moment be- 
cause it was a constitutional cri- 
sis," she said. 

When Onassis died, Zschoche 
remembered the assassination of 
President Kennedy in 1963, and 
the widow who brought the na- 

tion through it. 

"Jackie was haunting because 
what she was about was a pristine 
sort of memory that was pre- 
served," Zschoche said. 

"In my head, the whole world 
changed when Jack was shot, and 
she was the last tie to that time." 

Zschoche said the loss of Onassis 
signified yet another end to the 
Kennedy years in office. 

"They were of a time when we 
still believed everything was pos- 
sible, and sometimes it's hard to 
know you still can't feel that way," 
she said. "It's ironic that Nixon 
taught us why we can't."

Desijpimay lessen quake damage 

by Stephanie Steenbock & AP 

It took only 20 seconds for an 
earthquake to devastate the city of 
Kobe, Japan. 

At 7.2 on the Richter scale, the 
Jan. 18 quake left more than 4,800 
dead and 25,000 injured. 

Three professors worked to 
patent a design they hoped would 
lessen damage caused by quakes 
like the one that hit Kobe. 

"In an earthquake, the stories of 
a building shift," Philip Kirmser, 
professor of civil engineering, said. 
"With this design, the entire struc- 
ture will move as a unit. People 
inside the building during an earth- 
quake will still feel the motion, but 
damage to the building and the 
contents should be eliminated." 

With Kuo Kuang Hu and Stuart 

Swartz, professors of civil engineer- 
ing, Kirmser presented the inven- 
tion to the KSU Research Founda- 
tion in 1990. The foundation was 
helping patent the Stiffness Decou- 
pler for Base Isolation of Structures, 
which they began in 1976. 

"The contribution of our in- 
vention is a breakthrough," Hu 
said. "If you try to make the col- 
umn stronger, you make it stiff. 
Our innovation makes it strong 
and flexible." 

Bearing pads on top of the 
columns provided damping to help 
eliminate structure displacement. 

"We have strong confidence in 
the design," Hu said. "But other 
people want to see the physical 
evidence, such as a structure stand- 
ing after an earthquake."

Political scientists and histori- 
ans at K-State got an inside look at 
Soviet history with the addition of 
Sergei Khrushchev March 2. 

The son of former Soviet leader 
Nikita Khrushchevjoined the fac- 
ulty for a one-month stay as a 
visiting professor of history and 
political science. 

"He likes Kansas because it is 
much like his home in the 
Ukraine," Dale Herspring, po- 
litical science department chair- 
man, said. "He thought it was 
wonderful to be asked back to 
Kansas. It was the easiest sell I've 
ever had in my life. I just men- 
tioned it to him, and he asked me 
when he should come." 

Herspring met Khrushchev at 
Brown University, where Khrush- 

chev was a professor. Khrushchev 
visited campus April 22, 1994, to 
discuss U.S.-Soviet relations dur- 
ing his father's years in power. 

"There is a lot of interest 
throughout the state," Herspring 
said. "He has received a lot of 
invitations from groups around the 
state for him to come and speak to 
their organization. He has agreed 
to meet with a large amount of 
groups and speak about his father." 

While at K-State, Khrushchev 
planned to do research for a book 
about his father's dealings with 
President Dwight Eisenhower. 

"This really puts Kansas out in 
the forefront," Herspring said. 
"I've been impressed with the re- 
actions of the deans, my colleagues 
and the students."

Senate passes GATI^ economic effects debated 

by Wade Sisson 

Passage of the 124-nation Gen- 
eral Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 
Dec. 1 brought mixed reviews. 

While President Clinton called 
passage of GATT a victory for the 
United States, opponents said the 
global agreement was a serious 
setback to American workers and 
might cause middle-class voters to 
turn against both political parties. 

Randy Crow, senior in mar- 
keting, verbalized his opposition 
to GATT in a letter to the editor 
of the Collegian before Senate 
passed the trade agreement 76-24. 

"I've got a negative view of it," 
Crow said. "I think it's really go- 
ing to play against small business 
and the individual." 

What Crow said he found most 
disturbing about GATT was its 

part in establishing what might 
become a one-world government. 

"We have a U.N. flag flying 
over Manhattan right now, and 
people don't know what's going 
on. It's not about trade. It's about 
power and money." 

However, GATT supporters said 
it would lower barriers for U.S. 
businesses and farmers overseas. 

Roger Trenary, economics in- 
structor, said the agreement would 
help the U.S. economy. 

"I think it will affect the economy 
in a positive manner," Trenary said. 
"Probably the greatest effect on 
Kansas is in agriculture. 

"The U.S. complains that Eu- 
rope subsidizes their exports be- 
cause it puts U.S. farmers at a disad- 
vantage," he said. "Part of the agree- 
ment was to reduce the subsidies." 

This reduction would help 
widen the market for U.S. farm- 
ers, he said. 

Patrick Gormely, professor of 
economics, agreed GATT would 
be beneficial. 

"I think the consensus is that 
U.S. agriculture will gain," he said. 

A disagreement about agricul- 
tural subsidies between Europe 
and the United States had caused 
a three-year delay in talks about 
GATT, which had existed for al- 
most 50 years, Gormely said. 

The latest GATT talks began in 
1988. GATT offered countries a 
forum to discuss economic and 
political issues as they affected trade. 
GATT cut tariffs by an average of 
38 percent worldwide and created 
a World Trade Organization to 
referee trade disputes.

open, you're

Ryan, senior in 
graphic design, 

To avoid 
theft, Ryan said, students were 
warned to take their paintings 
home as soon as they were dry. 

Like most other campus build- 
ings, the art studios were locked 
when not in use. 

Christine Parsley, sophomore 
in graphic design, said the locked 
studios led to some late work nights 
because students couldn't get into 
the studios until about 5 p.m. 

Although most art classes were 
worth two credit hours, students 
devoted extra time to the classes. 
"You spend so much time in 
class, but you spend at least four 
more hours outside class each 
week," Levi Hunter, junior in

graphic design, said. 

"I've questioned why we don't 
get more credit so many times." 

Ryan agreed. 

"Most art majors take 1 5 hours 
and are working in the studio all 
the time," she said. 

Devoting so much time to their 
artistic talents was something stu- 
dents started during high school. 

Parsley said she became inter- 
ested in art during high school in 
Clay Center. 

She said she chose graphic de- 
sign as a major because she thought 
it was more structured than other 
art majors. 

Students worked with com- 
puters in many art classes. 

"In the lower-level classes, stu- 
dents cut everything by hand. 

"In the higher-level classes, ev- 
erything is designed on the com- 
puter," Ryan said. 

Creative thinking was neces- 
sary for success in art classes. 

"Left-brain knowledge is more 
important than right-brain knowl- 
edge," Ryan said. 

One student's forte was 
another's struggle.

a night of drama in the 


by renee martin 

T| he distraught woman hur- 
ried into the Veterinary 
Medicine Complex's emer- 
gency room and quickly explained 
she had a horse with colic that 
needed immediate attention. 

Anne Willcoxon, emergency 
desk office assistant, reassured the 
woman and notified the doctors 
that the horse had arrived. 

"Everything will start swing- 
ing into action here," she said 
before she began calling all the 
veterinary-medicine students who 
were assigned to the equine team. 

Responding to situations such 
as this was just part of the job for 
the workers at the emergency- 
room desk. During the day, the 
desk handled discharges, but after 
5 p.m., it served as the E.R. desk. 
Owners who admitted their ani- 
mals through the desk had to pay 
an additional $35. 

"The desk has to be open and 
functioning all the time," Linda 
Rohs, supervisor of the emergency 
room and discharge section, said. 
"We have clinicians who are on 
call, and there are students who 
are here until 10 o'clock. If an 
animal comes in after this time, 
my staff calls students at home. 
They are to get here within 10 
minutes. If the animal is severely 
injured, the students should re- 
spond within three minutes." 

With the phone propped on 
her shoulder, Willcoxon was still 
trying to reach a member of the 
equine team when she was inter- 
rupted by an upset man. 

"I've got a dog with a possible 
broken leg," Don Sargent, Man- 
hattan resident, said. "She got hit 
by a UPS truck." 

Willcoxon relayed the message 
to two veterinarians on duty, who 
retrieved the 5-year old dog, Sally, 
from Sargent's truck. 

While the veterinarians exam- 
ined the dog, Don and his wife, 
Hazel, returned home to wait for 
an update on Sally's condition. 

Later that night, they received 

a call that brought bad news: Sally 
had a crushed pelvis as well as 
internal injuries. 

The Sargents decided to have 
their dog euthanized. 

"We were pleased with what 
the veterinar- 
ians did," Hazel 
Sargent said. 
"Under the cir- 
there wasn't a 
lot they could 

Rohs said 
hitting animals 
was the most 
common cause 
of injuries 
among small 
pets admitted 
through the 
desk. About 150 
small animals 
and 35 large ani- 
mals were ad- 
mitted each 
month, she said. 

"The largest 
number of ani- 
mals we see are 
dogs," she said. 
"The second 
largest are cats. 
We also see lots 
of iguanas, snakes and birds." 

On Oct. 21, horses were also a 
popular animal on the admittance 
list. Willcoxon had just finished 
calling all the members of the 
equine team when another horse 
with colic was brought in. 
Willcoxon picked up the phone 
and began calling members of an- 
other equine team. 

"Working here can go either 
way," Willcoxon said. "I've had 
evenings when I've been really 
busy, and then I've had evenings 
where it's been so slow I've died." 

This night she had little time to 
relax. After calling all the students,

she helped Pat Thompson, the 
farm manager who brought the 
second horse in, fill out paper- 
work. Thompson had driven from 
Kansas City, Kan., so the horse 
could be treated at K-State. 

"We have brought several 
horses here before, and I felt more 
comfortable coming here," 
Thompson said. "We have always 
had good results." 

Rohs said it was not uncom- 
mon for people to travel long 
distances for help at the clinic. 

"We get anywhere from 75 to 
100 referrals a month," Rohs said. 
"We work very closely with other 
vets in the state. We are used a lot 
for second opinions." 

Joyce Budt, Olathe resident, 
made weekly trips to Manhattan 
with Spencer, her 5-year-old 
cocker spaniel and poodle mix 
who had cancer. Budt's local vet- 
erinarian suggested she take her 
pet to the Veterinary Medicine 
Complex for treatment. 

"Spencer comes on Wednes- 
day, receives his chemotherapy 
on Thursday and then is picked up 
again on Friday," she said. "He 
has two more weekly treatments 
to go. Then he will go to biweekly 
treatments for another two 

Budt said driving the distance 
to the clinic was worth it. 

"Spencer is like a part of the 
family," she said. "Wouldn't you 
do everything you could to help 
save someone in your family?" 

But sometimes the animals 
couldn't be saved. Hal and Chris 
Snyder traveled to K-State from 
Lyons to say goodbye to Bingo, 
their 16-year-old dog. Bingo, a 
Labrador retriever and collie mix, 
was suffering from a lung tumor 
and a neurological disease. 

Andrea Wright, fourth-year 
student in veterinary medicine, 
was in charge of the case. She said 
although Bingo was a poor candi- 
date for surgery, it was difficult for 
her to suggest he be euthanized. 

"It is always hard to recom- 
mend euthanasia to owners. Some 
people refuse to consider it as an 
option, but there are times when 
the animal is obviously suffering. 
As difficult as it is to offer, there 
are definitely cases where we 
would be negligent not to." 

Wright met the Snyders at the 
room desk and 
took them to 
the intensive- 
care unit where 
Bingo rested. 
He was covered 
up with a blan- 
ket and had a

That was where the world of a

of Christopher Borhani began. 

Christopher defied his age. As 
a K-State student he had com- 
pleted 1 5 college credits in art and 
geography classes by the time the 
fall semester began. 

"I wanted to 
take biology 
and trigonom- 
etry, but they 
were too full," 
said. "I went to 
biology the first 
day to try and 
get in the class.

"I dropped him off at 11:30 
and did not pick him up until 
5:30," Rahim said. "During that 
time, he did not even get up and 
go to the bathroom, and he started 
on the next week's assignment." 
He was a boy with biology on 
the brain. Christopher said he had 
planned to graduate from K-State 
and start medical school at age 15. 
But his plans shifted, and he 
expected to begin medical school 
at age 20. 

"I'm thinking about KU since 

they have a good med school, but 

I don't like the Jayhawks," he said. 

School wasn't his only passion.

Christopher said he considered 
taking a break after college gradu- 
ation to pursue another interest. 

"I might go out of college for 
a couple of years to build up my 
music," he said. 

Christopher started playing the 
piano at age 5 . He performed with 
the Gold Orchestra, part of K- 
State's music department, and at 
area schools and was planning trav- 
eling performances to places such 
as Chicago, London and New 

Rahim said he was encourag- 
ing his son to take a two-year 
break to practice piano. 

"I could make him a good 
concert pianist now. He will al- 
ways be ready for college," Rahim 

"Children learn music and lan- 
guage at such an early age. I am 
afraid that he will fall behind. I am 
also worried that if I let him be a 
full-time student, he won't have 
time to do the chores around the 
house I like him to do." 

The Borhani parents posted a 
chore list on their refrigerator of 
daily tasks for the children to do. 

Household duties were distrib- 
uted between Christopher; Crys- 
tal, 10; and Christina, 7. 
Chrischelle, 4, was still on a so- 
called vacation for a few years. 

Schedules and organization 
were important factors within the 
household, partly because the chil- 
dren all had home schooling. 

On the first floor of their home 
was a schoolroom, which included 
a blackboard, a science corner with 
a 3-D poster of the human body, 
a corner for geography and history 
with maps and a globe, and a math 
corner. A dresser in the room 
contained science lab experiments. 

Christopher's mother, Martha, 
who majored in elementary edu- 
cation in college, taught the chil- 
dren social sciences. Rahim, who 
majored in engineering and archi- 
tecture, taught the sciences.

"I know the basics of flight, but 
I'm concentrating on steep turns 
and formation," he said. 

Because of his accomplish- 
ments, Christopher often dealt 
with the media. 

He was featured in area news- 

papers such as the Wichita Eagle, 
the Topeka Capital-Journal and 
the Manhattan Mercury. 

NBC featured Christopher at 
K-State and showed him in his 
college algebra class, which was 

"It was always empty," Chris- 
topher said. "No one ever went." 

"A Current Affair" followed 
him for one day and introduced 
him as a boy not old enough to 
drive a car, but who could be 
holding the scalpel for surgery. He 
was called the Whiz Kid. 

Despite all the hype, Christo- 
pher said he was no different than 
any other student. 

"I'm not different from other 
students. I have to pay fees just like 
them," he said. 

"I'm having as much fun as any

Rahim and Martha allowed 
their children to watch television 
in a controlled environment, 
which consisted of educational 
videos, and Charlie Chaplin and 
Walt Disney movies. 

Although Christopher had 
never seen the TV situation com- 
edy "Doogie Howser," he knew 
of the fictional character because 
people often referred to him as 
Doogie Howser. 

"I'm better than Doogie 
Howser, though," he said. 

"I skipped high school, and it 
took him nine weeks."

marching band pumps up 


by darren whitley 

The K-State Marching Band 
turned up the volume with 
234 members, 111 of 
whom were new to the group. 

"It's been a big adjustment to 
have so many people to get orga- 
nized and all the details to so 
many people," said Karla 
Hommertzheim, senior in sec- 
ondary education and color guard 
section leader. 

The color guard peaked at 24 
members during the season, 
Hommertzheim said. 

"That's a big change from 
when I was working with nine 
or 11 people," she said. 

"But I think we've adapted 
really well. I think the whole 
band has." 

Alex Shultz, senior in electri- 
cal engineering and tuba section 
leader, said he thought the band's 
growth was impressive. 

"It's amazing," Shultz, a five- 
year veteran of the band, said. 

"I never thought it would 
happen. It's the largest band I've 

"It's a lot of work trying to 
get everybody to do everything 
at once the same, but it's really 
rewarding, too," Shultz said. "I'm 
really happy to see it that big 

because I think it adds a lot." 

Hommertzheim agreed that the 
band's increased size enhanced its 

"We are no- 
ticed more, and 
we're more effec- 
tive on the field 
just because of 
the sheer num- 
bers and volume, 
and the more ef- 
fective we are in 
that way, the 
more support we 
get from the stu- 
dents and alum- 
ni," she said. 

While the 
band grew in 
size, it wasn't at 
the expense of 

The band 
continued play- 
ing the "Wabash 
Cannonball," a 
tradition that 
dated back to 1970. 

A simple act by Phil Hewett, 
band director at the time, gave rise 
to the "Wabash" tradition, Frank 
Tracz, band director, said.

Dennis Wilson 

An internationally known jazz trombonist 
brought talent, name recognition and swing to his 
role as a music educator. 

Dennis Wilson, lead trombonist with the 
Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestra and Jazz Masters, left 
the Big Apple to join the music department Aug. 1 8 
as director of jazz studies. 

"I came here because I want to create a jazz 
program with an emphasis on the word program," 
Wilson said. "Plus, at night in Kansas, you can see 
the stars." 

Teaching two jazz combos, a concert jazz en- 
semble, a jazz trombone choir, a trombone quintet 
and two levels ofjazz improvisation, Wilson inched 
toward the goal of an integrated jazz program. 

by claudette riley 

"The main thing I want to do is create a large 
variety ofjazz performances. We have good classes, 
but I want to create an integrated program," Wil- 
son said. "The most important thing is working one 
on one with the students. Personal contact is key." 

Wilson hoped to eventually start a vocal jazz 
ensemble. He also wrote and arranged music for 
each group. 

"We will be a swinging band. It's not easy to do, 
but swingingjazz lasts forever," Wilson said. "We'll 
still do some different pieces." 

Wilson said he believed it was important to 
educate talented students on their career options 
after graduation and planned to contribute infor- 
mation about his experiences.

"In 1970, he took "Wabash" 
home, all the music, all the scores, 
in a briefcase to re-edit some things 
and fix some stuff. 

"But that night, Nichols burned 
down, which was the old depart- 
ment of music. Everything was 

" 'Wabash' was the only piece 
of music that was saved because he 
took it home with him. 

"So, the next game, they played 
"Wabash" quite a few times, and 
the story grew and caught on," 
Tracz said. 

"There's something about that 
tune that's meant to be played at 
K-State," he said. 

"I don't know how it got to 
Kansas, but then when I discov- 
ered the story, it's worth playing. 
It's a survivor." 

Another band tradition was the 
closeness members developed from 
spending 10 to 25 hours a week 

For band members who didn't 
always see eye to eye, Tracz started 
a tradition of his own. 

"We do jumping jacks to the 
number of points that the offense 
scored the week before," he said. 
"If we lost the game, we combine 

their score and our score and do 
those jumping jacks. 

"And if we don't start together 
and end to- 
gether on that 
number of 
jumping jacks, 
we double it 
each time." 

Tracz said a 
lack of concen- 
tration some- 
times caused 
the band to do 
100 jumping 
jacks or more. 

"You've got 
kids coming 
from math, bi- 
ology and En- 
glish and work 
and just broke 
up with their 
girlfriend orjust 
woke up or are 
tired, and their 
brains are ev- 
erywhere , " 
Tracz said. 

"So, being there to exercise 
together kind of adds a little physi- 
cal tenseness to it to get you think- 
ing, 'This is band — forget about 
the world for now,'" he said.

taking the heat for 


Academic dishonesty came to 
LMthe forefront of campus con- 
i. 9L cern in the fall with two 
separate incidents of cheating. 

Two departments, biology and 
geology, discovered a portion of 
the students in introductory 
courses had cheated on exams. 

An estimated 95 students were 
suspected of cheating on a Prin- 
ciples of Biology exam when their 
grades dramatically increased in a 
few weeks' time, Larry Williams, 
professor of biology, said. The 
accused stu- 
dents failed the 
course and 
were forbid- 
den to retake 
the course un- 
til fall 1995. 

police investi- 
gated the pos- 
sibility that the 
exams had 
been stolen 

"We should try to 

minimize the cheating 

instead of trying to put 

an end to it." 

David Rintoul, 

associate professor 

of biology 

from a depart- 
ment computer. Detective Rich- 
ard Herrman interviewed 70 stu- 
dents but found no such evidence. 
David Rintoul, associate pro- 
fessor of biology, said no precau- 

by stacy keebler and amy ziegler 

tions could keep students from 
cheating on the weekly exams. 

"Whenever we try to change 
something, they are always going 
to be one step ahead," Rintoul 
said. "We should try to minimize 
the cheating instead of trying to 
put an end to it." 

But the cheating didn't end. 

On Oct. 25, graduate students 
proctoring a Natural Disasters 
exam noticed about 30 students 
talking to each other. 

The proctors attempted to end 
the talking, but the students con- 
tinued. When the students handed 
the exams in, the proctors were 
able to isolate a few of the sus- 
pected cheaters, George Clark, 
professor of geology and Natural 
Disasters instructor, said. 

Because of the suspected cheat- 
ing, Clark threw out the test scores 
and said the material would be 
included in the final. 

Tiffany Loving, freshman in 
business administration, said she 
thought this punished everyone. 

"It was really frustrating to study 
so hard and not get credit for the 
test," she said. "They punished all 
400 students rather than just the 
30 who were guilty."

and continue to cheat." Because 
of the suspected cheating, the 
test scores were thrown out and 
95 students failed. (Photo

taking an idea 


by trina holmes 

Tl wo weeks after Brett Kelly, 
senior in radio/television, 
and Daniel Broze, senior in 
political science, came up with 
the idea to start a newspaper, the 
first edition of the Greek Times 
was rolling off the press. 

Starting with $125 between 
them and an office in Kelly's base- 
ment, the two were surprised they 
got the 16-page weekly off the 

"The whole idea of putting to- 
gether a paper is not something 
everyone thinks of doing," Broze 
said. "We organized it out of 
someone's house, in a little tiny 
room. The first night, we stayed up 
all night putting it together, and 
then we were cracking up all the 
way to the press because we couldn't 
believe we actually did it." 

Before the initial publication 
Sept. 28, Kelly met with officials 
from Greek Affairs and Interfra- 
ternity and Panhellenic councils. 

"Greek Affairs was concerned 
with fraternities using it as a tool 
to say something bad about other 
fraternities, but so far they've been 
really responsible," Kelly said. "Ev- 
erybody refers to the positive as- 
pects of their houses like their 

Kelly said the publication's pur- 
pose was to combat misconcep- 
tions about greek life. 

"You see a lot of people around 
the community who don't know 
anything about greek life," Kelly 
said. "There's so much prejudice 
out there. They think belonging 
to a fraternity or sorority just means 
keg parties, but not many realize 
being in a greek organization 
means having standards in the 
grades you must achieve, partici- 
pating in philanthropies and do- 
ing good for other people. 

"Fraternities and sororities are 
actually very structured and disci- 
plined as opposed to what people 
may think from seeing 'Animal 
House' and 'USA Up All Night.' 
The paper had a part-time staff 
consisting of 
two freelance 
artists, freelance 
writers, a sales 
and three deliv- 
ery workers. 
paid for print- 
ing costs. 

through the 
night, Kelly and 
Broze took the 
paper to Ag 
Press at 7:20 
a.m. Wednes- 
days and then 
distributed the 
free publication 
to each of the 
greek houses 
and various 
Manhattan lo- 

"We want 
the community 
to know what's 
going on in the greek system, and 
we want them to know who we are 
and where we are," Kelly said. 

He said the staff planned to 
start another paper in Lawrence 
and add more schools until it be- 
came a national network. 

"People would be surprised at 
what they could do if they thought 
they could do it," Kelly said. "I 
think people should have confi- 
dence in their ideas whether 
they're good or bad and be confi- 
dent in themselves and try, be- 
cause eventually one will work." 

Kelly and Broze produced the sixth issue of 
Greek Times. Although the two were usually up 
all night working on the paper, they thought they 
might actually get a few hours of sleep before 
taking the paper to be printed at Ag Press. (Photo

Fourth-year veterinary-medi-

on about 550 animals each year. 

"Our main emphasis is on 
people's exotic pets," James Car-

Students examined the animals 
at Sunset Zoo at least once a year. 

"We emphasize preventive

"We do what we can to give

Caring for a variety of animals 
provided valuable experience.

BODY com 

Finnegan uses calipers to mea- 
sure a skull in the lab adjacent 
to his office in the basement of 
Waters Hall. He tried to use the 
experience he gained in the 
field to help illustrate what he 
taught in his anthropology 
classes. "I can actually show 
them the things that we are 
talking about, " he said. (Photo

W'hile other professors took 
attendance, Michael Fin- 
negan, professor of anthro- 
pology, was doing a different kind 
of body count. 

Using his forensic knowledge, 
Finnegan worked as a consultant 
for the Kansas Bureau of Investi- 
gation and the U.S. Army's Cen- 
tral Identification Laboratory in 

During the course of a year, 
Finnegan received 25-30 cases. 
His most recent case took place in 
Neosho County in July. 

"It was the skeletal remains of 
an elderly woman who'd been 
missing," Finnegan said. "We 
came up with no cause of death, 
which suggests she wandered off 
and died of natural causes." 

Field work was also an integral 
part of Finnegan's involvement 
with forensic science. In early 
1994, he was part of a 12-person 
team sent to Vietnam on a search- 
and-recovery mission. 

"We were tasked to find the 
remains of three soldiers killed in 
the late 1960s, and the bodies had 
not been recovered," he said. 

The team spent three weeks in 
Vietnam on the rare assignment. 

"It was the first time that foot- 

by charity woodson 

soldier burials in Vietnam had been 
successfully recovered." 

After interviewing people who 
had been involved with the buri- 
als, city officials and area farmers, 
the team pinpointed the excava- 
tion site. 

As the team members dug into 
the last grid of the search site, they 
found a soldier's shoulder. 

"As soon as we found them, we 
were happy as hell," he said. 

Even though his jobs as a pro- 
fessor and a forensic consultant 
were different, Finnegan said he 
would not give up either. 

"I've had offers to go totally 
forensic sciences, and I've decided 
against that because it is exciting 
to work with students," he said. 

Finnegan taught Introduction 
to Physical Anthropology as well 
as primatology, paleoanthropology 
and a seminar in osteology. 

"I can actually show them the 
things that we are talking about," 
he said. "I use slides of my work to 
illustrate such principles. 

"There is something small, but 
worthwhile when you look out at 
a class and see blank faces after 
explaining a concept. When you 
explain it again and see faces light 
up, that's rewarding." 

His work not 
limited to 
professor of 
holds a sheep 
skull. Fin- 
negan worked 
an average of 
25-30 forensic 
cases per year 
for the Kansas 
Bureau of In- 
and the U.S. 
Army's Central 
Laboratory in 
Hawaii. (Photo

In the age of the information 
superhighway, education took 
on a whole new approach. 

The Computer and Informa-

staff, gave two colleges and one 
school at K-State grants to de-

of audio, video and text, in their 

The College of Architecture and 
Design, the College of Agriculture 
and the A.Q. Miller School of 
Journalism and Mass Communica- 
tions received funds to update ex- 
isting multimedia equipment and 
build new multimedia programs. 

The College of Agriculture 
used the grants to purchase hard- 
ware for developing programs as a 
regular teaching tool, Margaret 
Knupp, assistant specialist with the 
department, said. 

"I'm a strong believer that not 
everyone learns the same way. 
Some learn visually, auditorally or 
hands on," Knupp said. 

"Multimedia allows the in- 

structor to say it and show it at the 
same time." 

The Department of Horticul- 
ture, in the College of Agricul- 
ture, used the new technology in 
spring 1994 to teach a plant-sci- 
ence course. 

"I think it enhanced the class,"

culture, said.

WJhen Molly McGaughey first 
joined the American Mu- 
seum of Baking, it was only 
a shell of a museum. 

"They had 
no policies 
when I came 
in," McGaug- 
hey, senior in 
history, said. 

But after she 
began working, 
display cases 
held everything 
from tin trays 
with chubby 
baker cartoons 
on them to 
delicate china 
tea cups. 

When Mc- 
Gaughey ap- 
plied for library 
assistant, Ron 
Wirtz, director 
of the Ameri- 
can Institute of 
Baking library 
and curator of 
the baking mu- 
seum, offered 
her a job as 
museum assistant based on her 
experience at the Riley County 

by the royal purple staff 

Historical Museum. 

McGaughey worked at the 
Riley County museum since June 
1 992 and did everything from typ- 
ing to filing. 

At the baking museum, she got 
out from behind a desk and learned 
firsthand what a curator did. 

She established a collection 
policy that included a mission state- 
ment, purpose of policy, process 
for acquiring an object, process of 
caring for an object, loan policies 
and an ethics statement. 

Before McGaughey reworked 
the policy, people could donate 
items and then return later and ask 
for the items back. 

Changing policies was only part 
of McGaughey's plan. 

"I set my goals really high, and 
I'm not sure I'm going to be able 
to meet them," McGaughey said. 

Those goals included comple- 
tion of an accession ledger, a cata- 
log of all items in the museum 
collection, by Dec. 16. 

McGaughey introduced exhib- 
its with first- and second-century 
pieces from the Byzantine and 
Roman empires. 

"I've been able to set my own 
goals," McGaughey said, "and I've 
had a very broad experience."

Students enrolled in Story- 
telling class acted like 3-year- 
old and earned credit for it. 
The class, offered by the De- 
partment of Speech, helped stu- 
dents develop the ability to speak 
effectively in front of an audience. 
"This is one course where you 
get real-life experience," Mary 
Nichols, Storytelling instructor, 
said. "It gives you the ability to be 
a better parent, aunt, uncle or 

Students performed a book 
reading, a storytelling for a class of 
and a story-tell- 
ing aimed at 
whatever age 
group the stu- 
dent preferred. 
"You learn 
to work with 
people and de- 
velop better 
ing skills," 
Heather Sell, 
junior in occu- 
pational ther- 
apy, said. 

The culmi- 
nation of those 
readings was a 
group program 
in which two 
or three stu- 
dents developed a 30- to 45- 
minute program they performed 
outside the classroom. 

Nichols had taught the class for 
14 years and saw it evolve into 
somewhat of a business. She set up 
most of the outside programs. 

"Sometimes I feel like a 
booking agent. I book between 
25 and 30 programs a semester." 
The class was not just a busi- 
ness, but a learning experience. 

Nichols said the class was ben- 
eficial for student athletes because 
it allowed children to see them in 
a different light and helped the 
students be more articulate in 
media interviews. 

It was also an opportunity for 
the students to be creative. 

"People can get really creative 
with this course," Nichols said. 
"Some alter a well-known story 
and tell it from a new view." 

Students told the story of 
"Sleeping Beauty" as "Sleeping 
Hunk," or told the story of the 
"Three Billy Goats Gruff' from 
the troll's perspective. 

One program, performed dur- 
ing the fall semester by Sell and 
Ricci McBride, senior in life sci- 
ences, focused on Disney classics. 

The two told a group of pre- 
schoolers at the KSU Child De- 
velopment Center the stories of 
Dumbo, Jack and the Beanstalk, 
and Cinderella. 

Sell and McBride read the story 
of Dumbo and had the children 
act out certain sounds. 

As Sell told the story of Jack 
and the Beanstalk, the children 
jumped in, repeating the phrase, 
"Fee, fi, foe, fum. I smell the 
blood of an Englishman." 

Chris Clark, teacher of the pre- 
school class, said the children 
looked forward to the storytellers. 

"When they got here, the kids 
really perked up," she said. 

McBride and Sell said it didn't 
take them long to pull the pro- 
gram together. 

"It took us about a day to put 
together the idea," Sell said. "The 
rest of the time, we practiced and 
got the props." 

They used the Disney theme 
for the children's sake. 

"We thought Disney would 
keep their attention since most of 
them love it," she said. 

McBride said the class gave her 
experience in considering the au- 
dience when telling a story. 

"The class teaches you to learn 
about the audience and do re- 
search on it before you tell them 
things," she said. "You have to 
learn the tactics you can use to 
make it interesting to them, and 
not just tell them the story."

Lori Basiewicx 

Drawing on a fascination with how words sounded 
and fit together, Lori Basiewicz, senior in English, 
spun a science-fiction novel in her free time. 

"My mom made the meaning of words impor- 
tant to me, and my dad made the usage of words 
important to me. His was the practical approach," 
Basiewicz said. 

She started her science-fiction novel, tentatively 
titled "Protectors of the Key," after transferring to 
K-State in January 1992. 

"I hate to try to explain it to people and don't let 
them read it," she said. "I've found that in the past, 
if I let too many people read it, then I get so much 
input, and it's no longer mine." 

Using afternoon writing spurts and nocturnal 
quiet, Basiewicz polished her prose. She hoped to 
complete it before May and submit the manuscript 
for publication. 

Basiewicz, whose poem "War" was published 
in an anthology, said she felt more comfortable 
writing prose. 

She worked on her out-of-class projects inde- 
pendently but benefited from creative-writing 
courses at K-State. 

"They don't tell you how to write or make you 
write in a voice," she said. "They let you develop 
your own writing style and show you areas that 
need to be polished."

more than skin deep. 
The building, part of the Vet- 
erinary Medicine Complex, also 
underwent structural changes, 
which left its hallways littered with 
fallen plaster and sheet rock. 

Around the corner, past the 
debris and confusion, was the of- 
fice of a new dean, Ronald Marler. 

But he wasn't new to K-State. 

Graduating with a bachelor's 
degree in biological sciences in 
1971, he went on to receive two 
doctoral degrees, in veterinary 
medicine and veterinary pathol- 
ogy, in 1978. 

After 15 years in industry, 
Marler returned to academia. 

"Academia will have to look at 
itself from a business stance. Who 
is our customer? The students," 
Marler said. 

"We need to make sure the 
services we provide are what the 
students need." 

Particularly, he saw the need to 
propel the College of Veterinary 
Medicine into the 21st century. 

"The days of the individual 
taxpayer being able to fund higher 
education are drawing to a close," 
Marler said. "Money from the 
federal government is not what it 

used to be." 

Academia could learn some les- 
sons from business, Marler said. 

"Some of the good things that 
go on in industry that academia 
needs to look at are management 
and leadership," Marler said. "We 
need leaders." 

Marler has learned his own les- 
sons from the business world.

a balancing act of 


by wade sisson 

His philosophy was simple. 
"I have a very long, strong 
and continuous dedication 
and interest in undergraduate edu- 
cation," said Brian Spooner, di- 
rector of the Division of Biology 
since July. 

Spooner, whose post-doctoral 
research at the University ofWash- 
ington in Seattle brought a num- 
ber of breakthroughs in develop- 
mental biochemistry, said he be- 
lieved in the importance of re- 
search and teaching. 

"I am one of those people who 
wholeheartedly disagrees with the 
notion that you're either a good 
professor or a good researcher," 
he said. "The best instructors 
should be and often are good re- 
searchers as well." 

As director, Spooner contin- 
ued teaching and researching. 

"I think it's important to con- 
tinue to do those things that de- 
fine a university faculty." 

He based his role as director on 
his experiences as a professor. 

"I have a very simple philoso- 
phy about what role the adminis- 
tration at a university is, and basi- 
cally, it's to facilitate the functions 
of the faculty," he said. 

Faculty was important to 

Spooner, from his first year at K- 
State in 1971 as an assistant profes- 
sor of biology to his appointment 
as director of the University's 
NASA Specialized Center of Re- 
search and Training in Gravita- 
tional Biology. 

And while he valued faculty 
highly, also important was his own 
work — directing the University's 
largest administrative unit — with 
more than 300 undergraduate 
majors, 600 graduate students and 
40 post-doctoral students. 

"This unit alone brings in $7 
million a year in teaching and 
research funds," he said. "That's a 
remarkable record." 

That record, Spooner said, 
made the Division of Biology one 
of the largest industries in the area. 

"A major goal of mine is to 
ensure the continuation of that 
stature in the national and interna- 
tional community," he said. 

To do this, Spooner said, the 
Division of Biology must attract 
the best possible faculty members. 

"You could have a university 
without administrators," he said. 
"You could have some compo- 
nents of a university without stu- 
dents, but you couldn't have a 
university without the faculty." 

"I am one of those 
people who whole- 
heartedly disagrees 
with the notion that 
you're either a good

giving the green light to

"I really want what I 

do to kind of blend 

into the backaround." 

WThen students entered the 
information superhighway, 
it was often Elizabeth Unger 
who gave them the green light. 

Unger, a K-State employee for 
29 years, became vice provost for 
Academic Services and Technol- 
ogy and dean of Continuing Edu- 
cation Aug. 18. 
"The focus 
of the position 
is to bring tech- 
nology into the 
to get students 
connected to 
the Internet, to 
bring in satel- 
lite feeds and to 
give more teaching tools to in- 
structors," Unger said. 

For the first time, a class review 
session was broadcast from Dole 
Hall to students who wanted to 
participate without leaving home. 
"What we want to provide to 
students, not only on but offcam- 
pus, are services that don't cause 
the students to be space constrained 
or time constrained," Unger said. 
While trained as a computer 
scientist, Unger took care to make 
sure the technology didn't super-

sede the teacher. 

"I really want what I do to kind 
of blend into the background," 
she said. "I don't want to do any- 
thing unless it's educational for 
students. We're not going to use 
technology just to use technol- 
ogy. If it ain't broke, don't fix it." 

Having worked with comput- 
ers since 1958, Unger saw first 
hand the evolution of modern 
computer technology at Michi- 
gan State University. 

The first computer she worked 
on had only two bytes of memory. 

Her mania was computers and 
technology, but she was first and 
foremost a teacher. 

"My first love is teaching stu- 
dents, and I get absolutely turned 
on in the classroom," Unger said. 

That love of teaching carried 
over into her work as vice pro- 
vost, which allowed her to change 
the way classrooms were run. 

But, Unger said, technology 
must never come first. 

"I am interested that technol- 
ogy doesn't run things," she said. 

"I'm interested that quality 
education drive things. All com- 
puting should shrink into the back- 
ground, and education should 
come to the fore."

encouraging others to

discussing their experiences, de Leon and 
Goering share their excitement with a student in 
the K-State Union. Two years after her return to 
the United States, de Leon was still excited about 
the program. "Going to France helped me have a 
new perspective on the world," she said. (Photo 
by Cary Conover) 

W'hen Kris Goering left for 
France as part of K-State's 
study-abroad program, she 
didn't have any idea what she was 
getting herself into. 

There wasn't a program at K- 
State that could tell Goering, se- 
nior in modern 
languages and 
secondary edu- 
cation, what to 
expect before 
she spent the 
1993-94 school 
year abroad. 

And when 
Anoland de 
Leon, sopho- 
more in mod- 
ern languages 
and political 
science, re- 
turned from a 
year in France, 
there wasn't a 
program that 
gave her the 
chance to share 
her excitement 
about having studied abroad. 

So, de Leon went to the Office 
of International Programs propos- 
ing an addition to the study-abroad 
program: interns who would share 

their own experiences. 

The first interns were enlisted 
in spring 1994. 

The program allowed de Leon 
to share her experiences abroad 
when she came back to K-State. 

"I was so ecstatic about my 
experience," she said. 

"Going to France helped me 
have a new perspective on the 
world and this is a way for me to 
get things out to people, to help 
other people feel comfortable and 
realize there is someone here for 
them," she said. 

The group consisted of four 
interns who assisted outgoing stu- 
dents and incoming international 
students, visited classes and helped 
in the preparation of brochures 
and orientations. 

"I just had such a beneficial 
experience," she said, "and I know 
there's a world of opportunity 
here at Kansas State that many 
people don't know about." 

The interns also benefited from 
the program, de Leon said. 

"You're obviously going to be 
a different person when you come 
back and have to recast yourself in 
the American system. 

"It's a really good way to re- 
adjust to the U.S."

modern lan- 
guages, talks

maintaining a marriage that's 


by darren whitley 

"It's a relationship 
where there's periods 
where you do get 
lonesome, and that 
means when you are 
together, it means 
more to you. That's 
sort of a silver lining to 
a not entirely satisfac- 
tory situation." 

Harry Marsh, 

professor of 

journalism and 

mass communications 

K -State's oldest journalism 
professor had to be a great 
. communicator. 

That was because Harry Marsh, 
66, and his wife, Ellie, had an 
electronic mail and frequent-flyer 

"The difference in the rela- 
tionship is it's not a relationship 
where you take each other for 
granted so much," Marsh said. 

"It's a relationship where there's 
periods where you do get lone- 
some, and that means when you 
are together, it means more to 
you. That's sort of a silver lining to 
a not entirely satisfactory situa- 
tion," he said. 

Marsh's wife of 27 years left 
Kansas in 1992 to become the 
head librarian at the University of 
Washington's social-work library. 

She had worked as a clerical 
librarian at Farrell Library for about 
10 years. Because she liked work- 
ing at Farrell, she commuted to 
Emporia State University to pur- 
sue a degree in library sciences. 

After receiving her master's de- 
gree, Ellie was promoted to refer- 
ence librarian, but she wanted a job 
with a larger library, Harry said. 

When the opportunity came 
for her to interview for the posi- 
tion in Washington, her family 
encouraged her. 

"We told her that we'd be very 
lonesome without her, but she'd 
worked hard on developing a ca- 
reer," Harry said. 

Considering Farrell's expan- 
sion, Harry said Elbe's return to 
K-State was a possibility ifhe didn't 
retire first. Jokingly, Harry told 
her he was getting too old to pay 
the high insurance premiums that 
old people paid for life insurance 
and she was going to have to get a 
career for his security in his old 
age, he said. 

Harry, whose wife was 1 8 years 
his junior, said her career had 
always followed his. And while he 
had attained a career position he 
enjoyed, her career was just be- 


When they were married in 
1967, Harry was just beginning to 
teach, and Ellie had one year of 
college left. After she finished col- 
lege, their children were born. 

Harry said he thought the ca- 
reer Ellie was pursuing had poten- 
tial, and he supported her. 

"One way to advance your 
career is to go where the position 
is that is going to allow you to 
advance your career," Harry said. 

Harry said his family was curi- 
ous about the effects of the separa- 
tion because Ellie always had fam- 
ily around her and wouldn't have 
the support group she was used to. 

"We wondered how it would 
go. I think she felt a greater chal- 
lenge than I did. She had the 
experience of always having a fam- 
ily around her," Harry said. 

Separation was easier for Harry 
because their children attended 
universities in Kansas and because 
of his years as a bachelor, he said. 

Harry's experience in the U.S. 
Army's signal corps during the 
Korean War taught him about the 
importance of electronics in com- 

Electronics taught him about 
the use of electrical impulses and 
radio wave modulation, which 
related to how digital information 
was handled inside the computer, 
he said. 

As a young journalist, Harry 
filed stories with a typewriter that 
were edited in pencil and sent to a 
Linotype machine. Harry said the 
change to computers never in- 
timidated him. 

"I've always been fascinated by 
technology," Marsh said. "Rather 
than be repelled by it, I was fasci- 
nated by how it worked." 

That fascination was respon- 
sible for keeping the Marshes' fam- 
ily and relationship together. The 
family used e-mail instead of writ- 
ing letters during the school year. 

"I really did a lot more com- 
municating that way," Harry said.

and mass 
tions, lives in 
while his wife, 
Ellie, is the 
head librarian

work library 
at the Univer-

ington in Se-

family sup- 
ported Ellie's 
move. "We 
told her we'd 
be very lone- 
some without 
her, but she'd 
worked hard 
on developing 
a career," 
Harry said.

K-State-Salina students had 
a luxury most students at 
l the Manhattan campus 

didn't — personal computers in 

their rooms. 

Each room in the newly built 

K-State-Salina residence hall was 
equipped with 
a 486 IBM- 
personal com- 
puter, which 
made it much 
easier for stu- 
dents to do 
their home- 
work and class 
"It makes some 
things a lot 
easier to do," 
Bryan Hoef- 
fner, freshman 
in the profes- 
sional pilot pro- 
gram, said. 
"Whenever I'm 
getting stressed, 
I just go play a 
game. It's nice 
because you can 
talk to other 
people. Instead 
of calling them 
up, you can call 

them up on the computer and say, 

'Do you want to do homework 

later?' " 

In addition to using software 

for homework, the students could 

hook up to the Internet. 

"At request, you can have 
Internet software put on your com- 
puter so you can get an account 
and hook up to the Internet," 
James Alter, freshman in electronic 
engineering technology, said. 
"The dorm is a network. So, you 
can talk to other people through 
the computers in the dorm. Ev- 
eryone has their own call sign." 

Computers aided in the appli- 
cation of school to real-life situa- 
tions, said Lonnie Burk, president 
of Hall Governing Board and 
sophomore in computer engineer- 
ing technology. 

"Since this is an applied tech- 
nology curriculum with hands-on 
training on equipment, the em- 
phasis is to be able to do home- 
work and do studies here in that 
venue, and to match the workforce 
environment, because once we 
leave here, we're right into the 
workforce," Burk said. 

Whether the students at- 
tempted to do homework or take 
a break from it, the computers 
proved useful to both the user and 
the campus. 

"It helped bring people to the 
dorm," Hoeffner said. "It was a 
good selling point." 

K-State-Salina's 100-bed resi- 
dence hall was part of a construc- 
tion-and-renovation project that 
included a new aeronautical cen- 
ter for the professional flight pro- 
gram, the technology center and a 
college center.

students share a cultura 


by Jamie bush 

East met West, new thoughts 
challenged old ones and ste- 
reotypes were reconsidered. 

Two groups of students, from 
Haskell Indian Nations Univer- 
sity and K-State, embarked on a 
mission to conquer prejudice, 
overcome misconceptions and 
learn about other cultures. 

The student exchange, the first 
of its kind attempted in the United 
States, was organized in an at- 
tempt to combine Western 
thought with traditional Native 
American attitudes. 

It was also meant to help both 
groups of students view each other 
from a different perspective, said 
Daniel Wildcat, chairman of the 
Department of Natural and Social 
Sciences at Haskell. 

The first of the two exchanges 
occurred Oct. 5-7, when K-State 
students enrolled in Professor 
James Sherow's History of the 
Indians of North America class 
went to Lawrence to visit Haskell. 

Students were treated to a wel- 
come and joint class session with 
students from Haskell. 

The next day began with 
Sherow's students and several 
Haskell students participating in a 
breakfast, followed by a "Four 
Directions" presentation at the 
Medicine Wheel, a sacred area for 
prayer and devotion by students 

on the southern end of campus. 

"The Medicine Wheel is a very 
old and sacred place that marks the 
four directions — north, south, 
east and west. It means different 
things to different people," Wild- 
cat said. "It is an icon that repre- 
sents Native Americans. 

"It symbolizes the fact that we 
are all related, and we must learn 
to respect one another," he said. 
"If we don't, we will continue to 
have conflicts and ecological prob- 
lems that we seem like we have 
been marching toward in the past 
few years." 

Sherow gave a lecture on the 
High Plains Indian culture in the 
afternoon, and then both groups 
attended one of two activities. 

Some attended the K-State vs. 
KU football game, while others 
watched a free performance of 
"On the Edge of the World — 
Goodbye Columbus," by Dance 
Brigade, an all-female dance en- 
semble, at the Haskell audito- 

The final day of the exchange 
began with a walking tour of the 
Haskell campus . Rita Napier from 
the University of Kansas gave the 
presentation "American Tribes of 
the Plains." 

The focus of her lecture was 
the historical significance of the

Pawnee Indian tribe, a topic 
Sherow's class was studying. 

"We are trying to study Indian 
history not just through the eyes 
of Western historians but from 
Native American historians' point 
of view as well," said Daniel 
Lewerenz, senior in philosophy 
and a member of Sherow's class. 

Lewerenz said the exchange 
was a prime opportunity for stu- 
dents to apply what they were 
being taught in a fun and interest- 
ing manner. 

"I think the exchange, for the 
first year, went very well and 
should be continued in the fu- 
ture," he said. 

A final presentation called 
"Who is really Indian?" was given 
by Wildcat and Nick Peroff, 
Haskell professor. 

Both Sherow and Wildcat said 
the exchange was a success, and 
they planned on having another 

"I think the exchange went 
really well," Sherow said. "Both 
groups of students learned to come 
into contact with people from 
other cultures and started to rec- 
ognize each other as individuals 
within a distinct group." 

The professors were not the 
only ones who expressed excite- 
ment about the first exchange. 

Jeff Gamber, senior in social 
science and member of Sherow's 
class, said he thought the exchange 
went well. 

"We were there to find out 
what it is like to be a person from 
the other culture," Gamber said. 
"When we went there, we were 
the minority — the non-domi- 
nant group. 

"It wasn't a thing where we 
were made to feel like a minority. 
We just got the chance to visit a 
different way of life both spiritu- 
ally and physically. It was a really 
interesting experience." 

The second exchange took 
place Nov. 9-11 in Manhattan. 

In order to explore stereotypes, 
Wildcat assigned the Haskell stu- 
dents a paper in which they were 
to write about anything that might 
have forced them to have a bias 
against the K-State group. 

"We had to write stories about 
what kind of stereotypes we had 
about the students from K-State 
— anything we might have no- 
ticed on the previous exchange," 
Joseph Rader, freshman in educa- 
tion at Haskell, said. 

"Then we had to see by writ- 
ing these papers if this reinforced 
or did away with our preconcep- 
tions of what we might have had 
of them before," he said. 

The exercise was designed to 
help students understand other 
cultural views. 

"I think instead of judging 
somebody by our values, we were 
trying to see them through their 
values and to understand them 
according to this angle," Pete 
Hernandez, sophomore in el- 
ementary education at Haskell, 

After the students prepared 
themselves for the change in at- 
mosphere, they arrived at K-State 
Nov. 9. 

After a brief welcome and din- 
ner at the K-State Union Flint 
Hills Room, the group checked 
into Marlatt Hall and rested.

With a new-found interest in

kind of scientific and historical 
significance Native Americans had 
in American society. 

Rapidly changing technology 
and the science-based thinking 
America became accustomed to

it more vital than ever to recog- 
nize traditional Native American 
ways of dealing with those issues. 

"The whole field of modern 
ecology is only a new idea to 
Western science, but they are very 
old ideas for the first Americans." 

In order to live in harmony 
within that type of society, one 
had to think and use social rela- 

tionships to tie politics, ethics and 
scientific thought into one neat 
package the entire society would 
follow, he said. 

Wildcat said the Native Ameri- 
can culture was one that looked 
first at the relationship between 
biology and chemistry and tried to 
tie that into modern-day issues. 

Their culture viewed all living 
things as contributors to society. 

"I am cautiously optimistic that 
if we remember our community 
as one that not only deals with 
two-legged persons but instead 
looks at the whole issue including 
plants and animals, we will be able 
to answer some of the environ- 
mental problems we are faced with 
today," Wildcat said. 

"This point of view is not based 
on a anti-technology argument. 
We just must realize that when we 
apply technology, we must 
reconceptualize the use of it." 

The exchange ended Nov. 1 1 
with the group attending Sherow's 
class. Afterward they attended a 
bison barbecue, observation of a 
bison roundup and a tour of the 
Konza Prairie Research Natural 

Even though it was the first of 
its kind, students said they felt 
positive about the exchange. 

"For something as new as this, 
I thought it went pretty well," 
James Geronimo Archuleta Jr., 
sophomore in natural resources at 
Haskell, said. 

"We felt very welcome here. It 
was a great experience." 

"Issues of indigenous 
people and their envi- 
ronmental ethos are 
needed to be ad- 
dressed. We now live 
in a post-'Dances with 
Wolves' society. It has 
become 'in' to be

To protest the rising cost of tuition and fees, Tomb 
carries $1,042.55 worth of nickels and dimes into 
Ahearn Field House during fee payment Aug. 1 9. 
Tomb said he was also protesting that students 
still couldn't pay tuition by mail. (Photo by Shane 

He did it to make a statement. 
Mark Tomb, sophomore in 
'arts and sciences, paid his 
fall tuition, totaling $1,042.55, in 
nickels and dimes to protest the 
rising cost of 

pricing the 
middle class out 
of an educa- 
tion," he said. 

Ackley, assis- 
tant controller, 
was supervising 
the cashiers 
when Tomb 
paid his fees 
Aug. 19 with 
two bags of 
nickels, one bag 
of dimes and 
$100 in rolled 

went to the 
cash station to 
oversee Tomb's fee payment be- 
cause it was unusual for someone 
to pay in change, Ackley said. 

Instead of making Tomb wait 
in line while the change was 
counted, his fee receipt was 

stamped as paid, and a police es- 
cort took the money to Com- 
merce Bank to be counted. 

As a result, Tomb's wait in the 
tuition and fee payment line was 
no longer than that of other stu- 

"It didn't take any more time 
than if I'd paid by check," Tomb 

"They just shipped it off to 
Commerce Bank." 

While Tomb waited in line, 
Commerce had been trying to call 
Tomb to inform him he'd been 
given $700 too much. 

Commerce took out the extra 
$700, but the remaining amount 
was $20 short of full payment. 

On the first day of classes, Aug. 
22, the cashiers office called Tomb 
and told him he still owed $20 in 
tuition and fees. 

Tomb said he had already paid 
his tuition in full and that he didn't 
want to pay an extra $20 because 
of what he considered a bank er- 
ror. He later paid the $20. 

Whatever message paying in 
change sent to the administration, 
it brought notoriety to Tomb. 

"I've gone to meetings and 
been known as the change guy," 
Tomb said. 

After hand- 
ing over four 
bags of 
change con- 
$1,042, Mark 
Tomb, sopho- 
more in arts 
and sciences, 
pays Amber 
freshman in 
arts and sci- 
ences, the last 
55 cents. 
Tomb said 
was shaking 
when he 
placed the 
money on the 
table. "She 
looked at me 
like, 'You've 
got to be 
crazy,' " he 
said. (Photo

Tuition at K-State increased 
$407 between 1985 and 199J 


tlttion levels off 

by the royal purple staff 

While Mark Tomb made his statement about 
tuition increases, a University administrator said 
the increases were leveling off. 

"I think the regents will probably start raising 
tuition levels at the cost of living," Tom Rawson, 
vice president for administration and finance, said. 
"The consensus is that tuition is at the level where 
it needs to be." 

As tuition increases slowed down, K-State com- 
pleted Phase I of a new computerized fee-payment 
system in spring 1994. In Phase I, financial aid was 
listed on one sheet per student and applied to 

Douglas Ackley, assistant controller, said Phase 
II, a mail-in system of fee payment, would require 

K-State to replace Stafford loans with direct lend- 
ing. This would mean financial aid must be sent to 
a student's account. 

Such a system would not be ready until spring 
1996, Ackley said. 

"Eventually, we hope to have computerized 
enrollment," Rawson said, "but it's not even on 
the timeline right now." 

As the method of fee payment changed, the 
amount of financial aid received changed as well. 

Director of Student Financial Assistance Larry 
Moeder said the number of student loans had 
increased. The student-loan volume for 1993- 
1994 was $15 million, he said. Grant volume 
remained the same.

many of the same students, 
but Manhattan Christian College 
and K-State offered two different 

Mitchell, senior 
in business at K- 
State and stu- 
dent at MCC, 
said attending 
MCC provided 
her a Christian 
while she 

earned a degree 
at K-State. 

"I'm from 
Missouri," she 
said. "So, the 
first question 
people always 
ask me is why I 
came here. I 
wanted to live 
in a Christian 
while getting 
my business de- 

gree from K-State." 

Mitchell lived in a residence 
hall at MCC her first two years of 

by prudence siebert 

school and then lived with six 
other upperclass students in a house 
owned by MCC. She said there 
was one main difference between 
MCC and K-State housing. 

"You may not know who your 
roommate will be, and you may 
not get along with them, but you 
know you both believe in Jesus 
Christ," she said. 

Eubanks said MCC students 
could connect on a spiritual level. 

Jeremy Eubanks, senior in 
Christian education at MCC and 
junior in secondary education at 
K-State, said despite the size dif- 
ference between MCC and K- 
State, the education was similar. 

"The workload is about even," 
he said. "You get challenged on 
both sides of the street." 

Jennifer Vantuyl, senior in 
Christian education at MCC and 
former K-State student, said she 
did not think the people were 
different; rather, their morals, be- 
liefs and recreational choices were. 

"Here, there are 275 students, 
and we all have a common goal," 
Eubanks said. "The reason we're 
here is to learn and grow to save 
the world for Christ, to see how to 
go into the world. It's a pretty 
unique bond."

Shelly Wheeler had many goals, including gradu- 
ating by May 1996 with degrees in business and 
Christian service. 

Most important, however, was her resolve to 
keep Christ in her life. 

"Working in a bank isn't as important to me (as 
it used to be)," said Wheeler, senior in business at 
K-State and junior in Christian service at Manhat- 
tan Christian College. "I can use my management 
skills and still work in a Christian environment." 

Because Wheeler eventually wanted to work for 
a campus ministry, she worked for Amore Minis- 
tries in Juarez, Mexico during 1994 spring break. 

"Amore Ministries does work in Mexico build- 
ing houses, kind of like Habitat for Humanity. I'd 

like to work for a group like that doing finance or 
accounting," she said. 

After the success of the first trip, Wheeler 
wanted to travel to Juarez again for spring break. 

"I want to go back down and build a house for a 
family. They're living in a cardboard box, and in four 
days they can move into a two-bedroom home." 

Wheeler lived with seven other MCC students 
in Rebekah House, one of the three MCC resi- 
dence halls for upperclass students. 

"I know everybody on campus — it's like a 
family," she said. "You don't date someone on 
campus without everyone knowing it within a 
couple days. Everybody knows everything about

WThen it came to learning 
how to tackle college life, 
students taught students. 

"In the mid-'80s, student gov- 
ernment wanted to find some bet- 
ter way to prepare students for K- 
State, to make sure students know 
where to go for help," said Judy 
Lynch, associate director of the 
Academic Assistance Center. 

Out of this idea came the Uni- 
versity Experience class. 

Designed for incoming stu- 
dents, the class has been taught by 
students since it began in 1983. 

"We're the only or one of the 
only universities where under- 
graduate students are teaching sec- 
tions," Lynch said. "Students that 
teach the class gain abilities and 
confidence in themselves, and it 
looks wonderful on a resume." 

Student instructors found ad- 
vantages in teaching the Univer- 
sity Experience class. 

"I think it's really been re- 
warding for me. As a student, it 
gets me out of bed in the morn- 
ing," said instructor Rachel Marsh, 
junior in sociology. "As an in- 
structor, I feel like I might be 
keeping someone in school that 
otherwise might be dropping out. " 

Bob Kohl, junior in manage- 
ment and information systems, was 
one of 28 students who taught the 
class in the fall. 

"When I was a freshman, I was 
completely lost for the first two 
weeks of school," Kohl said. "I 
thought it would be great if I 
could show someone the tricks of 
the trade." 

A wide range of students gained 
exposure to those tricks because 
of the course's structure. Two ver- 
sions of the class were offered: the 
regular version worth two credit 
hours and an enhanced version 
worth three credit hours. Special 
sections were also offered for ath- 
letes and international students. 

"We've learned a lot of things 
about the campus and what the 

campus has to offer — a lot of 
things the average student 
wouldn't know, like reading tech- 
niques and the Cornell method of 
notetaking," MattLeCount, fresh- 
man in pre-pharmacy, said. 

Class activities went beyond 
study-skills exercises and lectures. 

"We do interactive things," 
instructor Steve Eidt, senior in 
biology and chemistry, said. 
"We've done swing-dance moves, 
tion exercises 
and played Fris- 
bee — things 
that are not sit- 
your-butt types 
of things. This 
class is not that 
way at all." 

Class discus- 
sions and par- 
ticipation in 
campus activi- 
ties gave stu- 
dents exposure 
to a variety of 

"I made 
them all attend 
Racial Ethic 
Week and a Lou 
Douglas Lec- 
ture," said 
Marsh. "In 
class, we debate 
the greek sys- 
tem and topics 
such as homo- 

ment for the 
student instruc- 
tors meant 
learning how to approach the class. 

"We all teach extremely dif- 
ferent ways," Kohl said. "The 
class gives you freedom to do what 
you want. We all draw different 
knowledge from our own per- 
sonal experiences." 

As her students listen, Marsh discusses the results 
of their sociology test. Marsh attended sociology 
with her students and spent two days per week 
discussing material from class with them. (Photo

)es, birds and Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs were 
part of the tour when Student Gerontology Club 
members and Stonybrook Retirement Home resi- 
dents navigated Sunset Zoo's scenic path Sept. 30. 

Members of the Student Gerontology Club, also 
known as Alpha Gamma Epsilon, coordinated activities 
like the zoo tour every month. 

"We're trying to do two or three activities every 
month in conjunction with the senior center and other 
places," Joanna Shoup, senior in management, said. 

They attended state conventions and volunteered 
for community activities at local aging institutions. 
This gave the members hands-on experience. 

"Just helping people is why I'm into it," Brian 
Donner, junior in management, said. "We try to 
help them be as active as they possibly can." 

The club wasn't limited to those who had geron- 
tology as a minor. 

"Anyone who's interested in the field of geron- 
tology can join," Jodi Bacon, junior in pre-physical 
therapy, said. 

Bacon said one reason she got involved was that 
she liked interacting with senior citizens. 

"We get to know them; they get to know us," she said. 

Bacon got to know Nellie Quinlan, the widow of

L.R. Quinlan, former professor of horticulture, for 
whom the Quinlan Natural Area was named. 

After crossing a small wooden bridge at the zoo 
and traveling down a path, Quinlan and Bacon came 
to the African llamas' cage. 

As Quinlan and Bacon neared the fence, the 
llamas came over to meet them. 

Quinlan reached out and patted a llama's nose. 

"People have the same concerns about the world 
we live in, regardless of age," Bacon said. 

Shoup said the activities helped the senior citizens 
enjoy being around the younger generation. 

"It's a good opportunity to be around young 
people," she said. "Many times, there aren't many 
young people around." 

Brian Donner, junior in management, said the 
club's small size of 15 active members helped it work 
better with nursing homes. 

"It's a good number to have," he said. "That way, 
you don't overwhelm the residents." 

Residents had a lot to share with the students, and 
the students could also share with the residents, 
Shoup said. 

"We learn a lot from their experiences," she said, 
"and it gives them a friend."

Telling All

JLaking education a step further was the aim of the 
Bisexual, Gay and Lesbian Society. 

"Before, we were invited to talk to classes and groups, 
but now we're actually going out and educating," BGLS 
fall-semester president Frank A. Axell, graduate student 
in counseling and personnel services, said. 

The club continued to speak to human-develop- 
ment classes and tried setting up speaker panels with 
other classes, Shel Barry, BGLS spring-semester 
president and senior in interior architecture, said. 

Part of the BGLS proactive approach included 
activities such as the Coming Out, Coming Home 
Conference, which the group sponsored Oct. 10-15. 

The once day-long conference was a series of 
brown-bag lunch presentations and evening speak- 
ers who focused on issues that pertained to both the 
homosexual and heterosexual communities. 

"We had a lot of people there that normally 
wouldn't have been there," Axell said. 

The conference raised awareness in the community. 

"BGLS lets the whole University know that we 
are here and that gay people do live in Manhattan," 
conference speaker Heather Nelson, Flint Hills Al- 
liance member and junior in psychology, said. 

Because BGLS did not limit its activities to homo- 
sexuals, heterosexuals benefited as well, Axell said. 

"They're starting to see us," he said. "For a lot of 
people, they've never known anyone who was 
bisexual, gay or lesbian. Now they're starting to meet 
them, and it has changed their preconceptions and 

Another activity BGLS participated in was the 
Safe Zone Project. 

The project's sponsors distributed door hangers 
that invited others to talk about issues of sexuality. 

The club also planned a project called SAFE (Stu- 
dents, Administrators and Faculty for Equality). 

"We're hoping that once they see that we have 
support from administration and faculty, they'll be 
more accepting and willing to re-evaluate their own 
perceptions or misconceptions," Axell said. 

With its activities, BGLS hoped to send a message 
that education was the key to understanding, Axell said. 

"Our end goal is to bring all members of the 
campus together so that everyone can celebrate and 
learn from the diversity that is around us."

_au Beta Pi engineering honorary brought a K- 
State and Manhattan tradition back into the light. 

Although members of the honorary annually 
cleaned Manhattan's K-Hill, Nov. 5 marked the first 
time in decades that the hill had been illuminated. 

"I think the last time they did it was in 1947," 
Randy Schwartz, spring president of Tau Beta Pi and 
senior in mechanical engineering, said. 

Formerly Sigma Tau, the honorary became Tau 
Beta Pi in the 1970s. It was a 60-member engineer- 
ing honor society that recognizedjuniors and seniors 
in the top of their engineering class. 

The main aim of the honorary, Schwartz said, was 
to promote community service and excellence in 

One of the year's community-service projects 
was reviving the honorary 's tradition of lighting K- 
Hill, which overlooked the southeast corner of 
Manhattan, to commemorate Homecoming Week, 
Schwartz said. 

Tau Beta Pi had discussed lighting the hill for 
several years, he said. After getting feedback from 
faculty, students and community members, the hon- 
orary decided to revive the tradition. 

The organization solicited donations from area 
businesses for the project. 

"Businesses donated lights and a generator," 
Schwartz said. "Our members donated their time 
because we have to have someone up there at all 
times so nothing gets damaged or vandalized." 

Illuminating the hill was a small part of the 
honorary's annual community-service project. As 
part of the project, members whitewashed the hill's 
KS letters. 

Brenda Klingele, fall president and senior in 
mechanical engineering, said whitewashing the hill 
was tricky. First, members had to clear the area of 
weeds, branches, small trees and trash. 

"We try to urge caution," Klingele said. "The 
first drop-off is really steep. Also, it can get really slick 
on the letters." 

The next step, scraping the letters, wasn't too 
difficult because the group had done a thorough job 
the previous year, Klingele said. 

Some members rappelled down the letters to 
scrape paint from areas that were difficult to reach. 

"We actually have to get down and climb on the

letters, so two or three members usually end up 
pretty white in the end," Adam Hein, senior in 
nuclear engineering, said. 

"We tied a rope around their waist and had six 
people hold them so they wouldn't fall." 

Jeremy Whitt, senior in mechanical engineering, 
said the K-Hill project benefited the community. 

"It's a good community-service project. In fact, it 
is probably better than most because it is so promi- 
nently viewed," Whitt said. "It also gives pledges 
their first taste of what kind of projects Tau Beta Pi 

The project was important because the hill was a 
symbol of Manhattan's community, Schwartz said. 

"One of the neat things about K-Hill is that it is 
not only a symbol of Manhattan's community, but a 
K-State tradition as well," he said.

Fine-Tuning With 


New Recruits 

Fith 80 members, the Kansas State Orchestra was 
the largest it had been since its founding in 1882. 

The increase was mainly due to a successful 
recruiting program. 

"A lot of really good freshmen were heavily 
recruited," Scott Parmley, first-chair cellist and se- 
nior in music education, said. "The staff have a good 
feel for what they want." 

Darrin Duff, timpanist and senior in music edu- 
cation, said the increase in members played a part in 
the quality of music the orchestra played. 

"It hasn't necessarily been the increase in num- 
bers, but the amount of talent that has helped the by people who want to make music their life." 

by Janice Meua 

of music, said. All of the concerts were free, and 
many students were encouraged or required to at- 
tend. The concerts generally had an attendance of 
700 to 900, Littrell said. 

"I think there is a general trend for people on 
campus to take more interest in the orchestra and our 
concerts," Miller said. 

Not only did the concerts provide listening op- 
portunities for the audience, but they allowed the 
orchestra members to show their talents. 

"If you really like music, you should come," 
Parmley said. "Our concerts display what we know 

orchestra this year," Duff said. "The repertoire has 
gained a lot, and it's a lot more challenging." 

The orchestra had concerts Oct. 4 and Dec. 6. 
The concert in March was an opera, which the 
orchestra performed on alternating years. The sec- 
ond spring performance was scheduled for April 18. 

But the orchestra's newest challenge was the 
performance of a light classical pops concert Feb. 21. 

"The music is lighter and easier," Melissa Miller, 
violinist and junior in chemical engineering, said. 
"It's more appealing to the public." 

That public consisted of not only community 
members but a large number of students, David 
Littrell, orchestra conductor and associate professor 

Not all members were music majors. 

"We have a lot of non-majors and people from 
many disciplines," Littrell said. "Some are very good, 
and they enjoy playing." 

Kim Wiggans, bassist and sophomore in modern 
languages, said one enjoyable aspect of being in the 
orchestra was the challenging variety of music. 

"The rehearsals and the performances are much 
more professional," Wiggans said. "The people are 
there because they want to play." 

Wiggans said she planned to keep music in her life. 

"I hope to always play a little bit in a community 
orchestra," Wiggans said. "Music is too much a part 
of my life to let it go."

'ith weekend travel to states as far away as 
Minnesota and South Dakota, the Speech Unlimited 
team used idle time to practice speeches, debate 
political issues and make friends. 

"You don't know how well you have to get along 
with someone until you have to spend 1 2 hours with 
them in a van," Sara Hessenflow, Speech Unlimited 
president and senior in history, said. 

Students who had been on the team for four years 
had traveled the equivalent distance of two times 
around the world, Coach Craig Brown, instructor in 
speech, said. 

"Members who have been gung-ho and traveled 
with us a lot will have a few miles under their belts 
when they are done," Brown said. "We have several 
members who have touched three borders of the 
United States."

Speech Unlimited was an individual-events team 
that competed in 1 1 different forensics events at 
meets all over the country. The team took van trips 
that sometimes lasted up to 15 hours, despite the fact 
that closer schools also had competitive speech 
teams, Brown said. 

"There are tournaments closer, but we have an 
eye towards nationals," Hessenflow said. "It's good 
to let different parts of the country see your face." 

Brown said participants tried to attend meets in 
the same area as the national tournament to get the 
team familiarized with the competition and expose 
them to the judges. 

"This year we're making a point of going more 
north, since nationals are in Moorehead, Minne- 
sota," Brown said. "That's where the competition

will be from and the judges, also." 

Speech Unlimited finished third in the nation in 
1994 and placed in the top five in the past three years. 
Because of the team's record and the Midwest's 
reputation for producing quality speech teams, Brown 
said, it wasn't hard to keep good talent coming in. 

"We have a tradition of being the best program in 

the state," he said. "But a lot of times, students come 

to the University first and the speech team second." 

Members of the team partially credited their 

recent success to their new peer teaching. 

"We've taken the experience of the older people and 
taught new members from that," Rachel Hart, senior in 
speech, said. "We get together once a week and 
videotape our performances. The interpretation on our 
team has improved considerably because of this." 

Tony Filippi, senior in geography, said it was easy 
for him to get involved with the program. 

"I'd been introduced to forensics in high school, 
and I'd done it for four years," he said. "It was 
something I always wanted to do in college, and 
finally I said, 'what the heck.'" 

Hessenflow said any full-time student was eligible 

to compete, and because of this, it wasn't necessary 
for the squad to do much recruiting. 

"We sometimes judge the high-school state tour- 
nament and talk to the participants, but other than 
that, we don't have much of a recruiting effort," 
Hessenflow said. 

Of the 35-member squad, between 12 and 20 
members traveled to each meet. 

"We split up squads and go to different tourna- 
ments," Jared Adams, junior in speech, said. "We're 
all performers, so every time we're together, some- 
thing funny happens." 

With entertaining company, it wasn't hard stay- 
ing awake while on the road. 

"On our way to Moorehead, Minnesota, there 
was snow on the road," Brown said. "A gas truck had 
slid off the road, and we had to wait. A lot of us got 
out of the van and had a snowball fight." 

Hessenflow said getting to the tournaments was 
half the fun. 

"There are a lot of inside jokes that develop on our 
van rides. It all becomes kind of its own culture," she said. 
"Since we're all speech people, we have a lot of political 
debates. You sort out how you feel about things."

Members of Alpha Zeta, the College of Agricul- 
ture honorary, sponsored a Halloween party for 20 
unmatched kids in the Big Brothers and Big Sisters 
of Manhattan Inc. program Oct. 29. 

Children decorated pumpkins and walked through 
a haunted house under the stands in Weber Arena. 

The planning began in August for the party, 
Melissa Anderson, Alpha Zeta chancellor and se- 
nior in horticulture, said. 

"I think it's something everyone wanted to do," 
Joey Eilers, Halloween party chairwoman and jun- 
ior in animal sciences and industry, said. "We'll 
definitely do it again next year." 

Carol Babcock, casework coordinator for Big 

by Janet McPherson 

Brothers and Big Sisters, said she thought the party 
was a success and better organized than other Hal- 
loween events for the children. 

"We really appreciate campus groups' support," 
Babcock said. 

As part of the Ag Friendship Program, honorary 
members also called freshmen and transfer students 
in the College of Agriculture during the first semes- 
ter to make sure everything was going OK. 

One of the group's goals was to promote the 
College of Agriculture. Ted Schroeder, Alpha Zeta 
sponsor and associate professor of agricultural eco- 
nomics, said that in a lot of ways, the members took 
charge of their organization. 

"The group takes care of itself," Schroeder said.

.he Bakery Science Club looked for a few good 
men and women. 

Although the club had only 15-20 members, its 
small size was outweighed by its experienced mem- 
bership, Joseph Ponte, club adviser and professor of 
grain science and industry, said. 

"The club's membership has cycled from year to 
year," Ponte said. "This year it's not a problem for us 
because we have students with more experience." 

Erin Brannies, club president and senior in bakery 
science and management, said this year's club gained 
experience in many different activities. 

"There's the baking and bagging of the goods," 
Brannies said, "but you also learn how to work with 
a group of volunteers, plus how to keep track of funds 
and prepare yourself for employment opportunities." 

Members gathered Tuesday evenings to meet and 
bake items for Wednesday sales, Brannies said. Tra- 
ditional baked goods included varieties of cookies, 
breads and special-occasion treats. 

"The sales last from 3 to 5 p.m. or until all of our 
food is gone," Brannies said. "We usually make a 
couple hundred dollars each week, and anything we 
don't sell, we donate to the Flint Hills Breadbasket." 

Besides having weekly sales, the club also baked 
products for Family Weekend and the All-Univer- 
sity Open House. 

"We baked donuts and French bread for literally 
thousands of people," she said. "Some people come 
through not knowing we've been around. When 
they find out about us, they're tickled. Sometimes 
the parents even tell their kids that they will have to 
start bringing home more food from us." 

Students kept track of how many hours they 
worked throughout the year. Those who worked 50 
hours or more attended the American Society of 
Bakery Engineers convention in Chicago, and the 
top four students attended the Retail Bakers Associa- 
tion convention in San Francisco, Ponte said. 

"Each of the conventions provides opportunities 
for students to make contacts for future employ- 
ment," he said. 

Brian Brown, senior in milling science and man- 
agement, said his work with the Bakery Science 
Club would open doors for him professionally. 

"This helps me a lot with job opportunities," 
Brown said. "Even though I'm in milling science, I'll 
have a broad understanding of the industry."

made up for the club's small

(Continued from page 167) 

Although the club offered valuable experience, 
members encouraged others to participate simply for 
their own pleasure, Brannies said. 

"I love to bake," James Mitchell, junior in manage- 
ment information systems, said. "It's fun, and it's just 
another way to meet people totally out of your major." 

Mitchell said one of the club's perks was tasting 
the dough before it was baked. 

"Sometimes you just need to tell if it has the right 
amount of ingredients in it," he said. 

Brannies encouraged others to join the club. 

"I have gotten so much out of the club — 
leadership experience, working with people and 

meeting new friends," she said. 

The club's small size was probably due to the 
misconceptions people had about baking, Ponte said. 

"When people think of bakers, they think of 
someone who puts on a paper cap and fries donuts," 
Ponte said. "These days, over two-thirds of all baked 
foods are from large, high-tech operations. It's just 
not a small business anymore." 

Ponte said he thought the club would continue to 
prosper, even with small numbers. 

"It's a fairly well-kept secret, but the club is open 
to anybody," Ponte said. "We'd like to grow and get 
more people. Like the Marines, we're always look- 
ing for a few good men and women."

For Excellence 


year of planning for Mortar Board members 
culminated in the Kansas Academic Decathlon. 

The Jan. 27-28 competition drew more than 200 
high-school students to compete in academic events. 

"It is a competition to encourage excellence among 
high-school students," Jenni Meek, event chairperson 
and senior in journalism and mass communications, said. 

Students from 21 Kansas high schools attended 
the event at the K-State Union. 

The Academic Decathlon was a regional compe- 
tition, Lawrence Andre, Mortar Board president and 
senior in industrial engineering, said. The winning 
team, Shawnee Mission East, qualified for a national 
competition in Chicago. 

The competition consisted of interview and 
speech competitions and seven different tests over 

by Ashley Schmidt 

subjects such as math, science, economics and fine 
arts, Kayla Dovel, senior in psychology, said. 

Mortar Board, a senior honorary for students in the 
top 35 percent of their class, had been in charge of the 
competition for the past three years. Meek said. 

Three teams of three students from each high 
school competed in the event. These groups were 
the honor team, made up of A students, the scholastic 
team, made up of B students, and the varsity team, 
made up of C students. 

Students received awards at a banquet Jan. 28, 
Andy Wright, senior in biology, said. 

"Seeing the students' smiling faces at the end and 
seeing them get the medals and walk back to their schools 
with a sense of accomplishment is what made it all 
worthwhile to me and the others in Mortar Board."

.erforming dances from a variety of cultures helped 
the Ultralites dance group contribute to campus 

"We perform everything from hip-hop dance to 
country to African class, or whatever the members want 
to try," Danielle Paris, Ultralites captain and sophomore 
in pre-law and business administration, said. 

The Ultralites, a multicultural dance group, 
tried to keep membership at 12 but usually lost 
members during spring semester, so they orga- 
nized tryouts to maintain their numbers, Paris 

"It's really hard when you have another dance 
team like the Classy Cats because you don't get the

participation," Jonita Woodson, junior in secondary 
education, said. "It's hard work, but it is worth it." 

The group practiced once or twice a week unless 
it had upcoming performances, for which members 
practiced almost every day. 

Because members of the group came from diverse 
cultural backgrounds, the Ultralites were asked to 
perform at many cultural events during the year. 

"We have people from the entire spectrum — 
African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian 
Americans and Caucasians," Kim McKamie, junior 
in elementary education, said. "That's why the 
Ultralites were created. We wanted everyone to be

ig Eight Twister and dynamic speakers were part 
of the Blue Key National Honor Fraternity's "Revo- 
lutionary Leadership" week. 

Directors of the week chose the theme "Revolu- 
tionary Leadership" to encourage students to take 
advantage of opportunities on campus. 

"We got speakers who were dynamic to show 
how the world was changing and what the world 
would be like when we entered the job market," 
Stan Stadig, co-director of leadership week and 
senior in life sciences, said. "I thought we took a 
really different angle this year. 

"We were much less conservative. This year, we 
went crazy and tried to attract all students, not just 
the professional ones." 

To be a Blue Key member, students had to be in the 

by Ashley Schmidt 

upper one-third of their colleges and serve two 
consecutive semesters, Brandon Clark, senior in po- 
litical science, said. 

Members tried to involve more students in the 
week's events. 

"The purpose of the leadership week this year was 
not just to bring in speakers, but to celebrate leader- 
ship and bring attention to the fact that students are 
involved in a variety of activities, and they are 
concerned about the issues on campus," Stadig said. 

Five speakers, four who were K-State alumni, 
appeared during the week. With fewer speakers than 
in past years, it was easier for the organization to make 
guests feel more at home, Paula Ansay, co-director of 
leadership week and senior in marketing, said.

"In the past, all speeches were held in the Union. 
This year we took some of the speakers where they 
best fit in," Ansay said. "Sam Brownback spoke in 
Waters Hall. In fact, the room he gave his lecture in 
was the room he used to teach in." 

Other activities, such as the first Leadership Vigil 
campout, compensated for fewer speakers. 

"We wanted to draw more people in because we 
needed to increase attendance," Ansay said. "We 
came up with the Leadership Vigil, where we camped 
out for 94 hours since it was 1994." 

The vigil started at midnight Nov. 7 and contin- 
ued through Nov. 11. Almost every night, the 

members did something exciting, Ansay said. 

"We played Big Eight Twister, where instead of 
colored dots, there were dots with Big Eight mas- 
cots," Ansay said. "Another night we had a scavenger 
hunt, and we also had a live remote on DB92." 

Members promoted five issues: parking, tenure, 
biking, campus safety and student financial aid. They 
encouraged students to sign petitions, and collected 
about 1,600 signatures to present to Student Senate. 

"We want Senate to realize that students want to 
get involved," Becky Keller, Blue Key president and 
senior in human ecology, said. "They need to know 
that students do care, and they are aware of issues, 
and they do want change."

maintaining the team and trying to keep com-

University would one day gain a new varsity sport — 

"There is hope to become a varsity sport," Eric 
Fitzwater, club player and sophomore in pre-veteri- 
nary medicine, said. "Right now 
it seems the women's program is a 
lot closer because of Article IX, 
which is the equality rule. So, K- 
State is looking for another 
women's program to counterbal- 
ance against the men's programs." 

Actively, there wasn't much 
club members could do to make 
soccer a varsity sport, Kris Dekker, 
club president and junior in me- 
chanical engineering, said. 

"As long as we maintain the 
club and make sure that the col- 
lege-level soccer can be seen, 
maybe someday there will be more 
interest in making it a varsity 
sport," he said. 

Club membership was not a 
problem, as each semester about 
30 people showed up to practice, 
Vicktur Atughonu, club coach, 

"Thirty people is about right, 
but it is too much work with 
more," Atughonu said. "Not all 
of them get to play, and I don't 
like people sitting on the bench. 
Since everybody likes soccer, I 
don't want to push them away. I 
want them to be there and under-

they can play and represent the

with other area teams occasionally being invited. 

Atughonu said the tournament coordinators tried 
to make the Chartrand Memorial a Big Eight event. 
If a conference team was unable to attend, area teams 
like Emporia State or Fort Riley served as replace- 

Even though the club had the home-field advan- 
tage for the tournament, it had been several years 
since it had captured first place. 

"In the Chartrand tournament, every time, we 
place second against Iowa State or KU," Atughonu 
said. "It's been a long time since we have won the 
tournament — at least five years." 

The Chartrand Memorial honored the memory 
of Edward E. Chartrand, a business graduate and 
soccer player who died shortly after graduation in 
May 1979 at age 22. 

Although the tournament was important, 
Atughonu said, becoming a varsity sport was the 
club's priority. He wanted the club to grow in 
popularity and draw the administration's attention. 

"We'd be telling them to look because KSU 
soccer is doing all kinds of great things. The commu- 
nity is backing them, and they want to see it a varsity- 
level sport, not just a club-level sport, in the state of 
Kansas and throughout the Big Eight," he said.

.embers of the fast-pitch softball team hoped 
things would be better the second time around. 

Alba Velez, junior in interior design, helped 
return fast-pitch softball to K-State after a six-year 

"I started thinking about it my senior year in high 
school when I realized that K-State didn't have a fast- 
pitch softball team, but didn't get around to starting 
it until my junior year at K-State," Velez, coordina- 
tor of the club, said. 

K-State had a varsity softball team until the 1987- 
88 season, when the Department of Intercollegiate 
Athletics decided to drop it as a varsity sport. Then- 
athletic director Larry Travis didn't think the Univer- 
sity could afford a fast-pitch softball team, Ralph 
Currie, softball coach from 1979 to 
1988, said. 

According to University policy, 
males had to be included for the 
group to be an official organiza- 
tion. But Velez said she was re- 
lieved when no men came to the 
informational meeting. 

"There are no males. The prob- 
lem is if we let men join, we play 
Big Eight teams with no guys," 
she said. "It's not fair." 

One man, Pat Marden, senior 
in construction science, showed 
up at the meeting and volunteered 
to coach the team. Marden played 
softball for more than 30 years and 
coached it for 15 years. 

"I had been thinking about the 
same thing for a few years, and I 
saw their (Collegian) ad and 
wanted to see where it was going," Marden said. 

After the meeting, Velez had about 25 women 
join the team. 

With a team and a coach, Velez next worked on 
getting a schedule together. 

The team played 1 1 games against the University 
of Kansas, Wichita State University, Washburn 
University and others. 

"Most of our games are away because they are

doing us a favor by playing us," Velez said. "We have 

just one home game but are working toward more." 

The University provided money for 1 5 players to 
travel up to 500 miles away, paid tournament fees and 
helped cover the cost of equipment. 

The team got into shape by doing aerobics twice 
a week and lifting weights, Lisa Wolf, junior in 
accounting, said. 

The team was shooting toward becoming a var- 
sity sport in about two years. Velez said she worked 
hard to get the team where it was but said there was 
a long way to go. 

"I had to go to the club governing board and talk 
to them and make it a club," Velez said. "From there 
I have to go through the athletic department." 

The team looked forward to the possibility of 
becoming a varsity sport. 

"I would like to see K-State get softball back. They 
had it, but it was unsuccessful," Marden said. "I would 
like to get the team to a level that they can compete." 

Some players wanted the sport to become a 
varsity sport again for personal reasons. 

"I hope it becomes a varsity sport for the scholar- 
ships and money to help me with the cost of school," 
Wolf said. 

However, the players said they were just glad to 
have the opportunity to play. 

"I love softball and fast pitch, and when I decided 
to come here, I thought they had a program," Wolf 
said. "When I found out about this, I just wanted to 
get involved." 

Being involved often meant being competitive, 
but Marden said the team's goal was just to play and 
have fun. 

"I don't feel any pressure at all. I don't see how 
anyone could expect anything from these girls — they 
aren't recruited," Marden said. "First thing we're 
going to do is have fun. That's my philosophy."

throws a ball to second base 
during practice. The team, which 
consisted of about 25 women, 
had a goal of becoming a varsity 
sport. A varsity fast-pitch softball 
team existed until 1988, when it 
was dropped because of financial 
reasons. (Photo by Gary Conover)

A student organization, ICC welcomed hun- 
dreds of international students to K-State and the 
Manhattan community, Sharmeen Irani, junior in 
bakery science and management, said. 

"ICC picks up the students from the Kansas City 
airport and brings them back to the Union Station 
for a welcome-back party, which consists of speak- 
ers, food and a dance," Irani said. "ICC also makes 
arrangements for the international students to live 
with a student from their own country for a couple 
of weeks. The students become more familiar with 
Manhattan and don't feel as homesick."

ICC acted as a parent umbrella for 18 individual 
organizations made up of more than 200 students 
from 90 countries. 

"ICC helps student groups organize their own 
international events," Srinin Sundhararajan, presi- 
dent of ICC and graduate student in engineering, 
said. "The groups hold events such as African Night 
and India Night." 

In April, the ICC sponsored International Week, 
which included rallies, speeches, luncheons, table

people representing a variety of different countries. 
The week concluded with a potluck dinner featuring

'ecked out in cowboy hats and boots, members 
of Fellowship of the Christian Cowboys met weekly 
to share their beliefs about Jesus Christ and the 
Christian faith. 

"Fellowship of Christian Cowboys brings the 
western way of life together with the Christian," 
President Dan Trevithick, senior in construction 
science and management, said. 

FCC, which met every Wednesday, offered a 
non-denominational setting in which people with 
similar backgrounds could gather and feel comfort- 
able talking about the Bible, Trevithick said. 

"Denomination isn't what really matters," he 
said. "If we started nit-picking about religion, it 
would really narrow down the group." 

Bible studies weren't the club's only activities. 
The group also went on trail rides and camping trips. 
On Nov. 18, about 10 members went on a camping

trip to Pottawatomie State Lake. 

Clayton Walenta, graduate student in mechanical 
engineering, said the group fixed dinner over an 
open fire and sang country songs and Christian 
choruses with guitars and harmonicas. They slept on 
a tarp and cooked breakfast over the fire, he said. 

Dan Suderman, vice president and senior in 
animal sciences and industry, called the organization 
a support group for cowboys and cowgirls. 

"If you have a personal relationship with not only 
God, but with other people in the group, it's a lot 
easier to talk about your problems, and that helps you 
deal with them a lot better," he said. 

Walenta said the fellowship provided a supportive 

"We love and hold each other up," Walenta said. 
"We're not there to grab our members and tell them 
how to live."

JL/ight students and a coach brought home a na- 
tional championship in November for the first time 
in more than a decade. 

The K-State Livestock Judging Team won the 
national livestock judging championship at the North 
American International Livestock Exposition in 
Louisville, Ky. The team hadn't won the event since 

The 1994 team was the first K-State team since 
1974 to win both the Louisville and the American 
Royal contests. 

Students judging livestock evaluated and placed 
classes of four live animals per species for structural 
correctness and traits the industry and consumers 
desired in market hogs, sheep and beef cattle. They 
verbally defended their placings to a judge. 

Brian Anderson, senior in animal sciences and 
industry, was the highest-placing individual at the 
American Royal and third overall in Louisville. 

Anderson said he thought the 1994 team was the 
only one in the history of the American Royal, 
Louisville and the Mid-America Classic Livestock 
Judging Contest in Wichita to win all three compe- 
titions. The team was undefeated during the fall 

The team's success took a lot of hard work, 
Anderson said. 

He said sometimes it was hard to stay focused and 
manage school responsibilities, especially after win- 
ning the Louisville contest. 

Kevin Kuhlmann, senior in animal sciences and 
industry, was enrolled in 19 hours in addition to 

The team spent at least 40 hours a week together, 
he said. 

"Practice makes perfect," he said. "You've got to

winterize for low-income residents. 

Blanche Stevenson and her son, James, were 
chosen for the Oct. 29 project because limited 
resources and health problems kept them from get- 
ting their house winterized, Brian Uhlnch, fifth-year 
student in architecture, said. 

Members started by performing a series of tests to 
measure the amount of air that leaked into the house. 

"We deal with infiltration," Uhlnch said. "That 
is the amount of air that leaks into a building, and 
how much heat you must supply to the building 
depends on this." 

Using a fan that fit evenly in the door frame, 
members filled the house with more air than it could 
normally hold and then released a smoke pellet in the 
house so they could see where the air was leaking. 

After the leaks in the house were located, the 
group, consisting of 1 2 ASHRAE volunteers, sealed 
the leaks and performed the tests again to make sure 
their work was successful. An additional 6-10 inches 
of paper-fiber insulation had to be added to the 
Stevensons' home. 

"We didn't have a large number of volunteers, 
but from the word 'go,' everyone was giving it their 
full effort," Mark Hazlett, junior in construction 
science and management, said. "It was a whole- 
hearted effort, and people weren't just saying 'Aw, I 
gotta do this for my resume.'" 

Hazlett said the group's work had the potential to 
reduce the Stevensons' monthly KPL Gas Service 
bill from $150 to $100. 

Uhlrich said the project not only helped someone 
in need but also gave members the chance to supple- 
ment classroom learning with hands-on experience. 

ASHRAE members were further exposed to their 
field by participating in Shadow Day, Dec. 5, when 
members of the group traveled to Kansas City and 
spent the day observing members of their profession. 

"It's an opportunity for students to explore career 
paths in their field," Uhlrich said. "A lot of people 
don't know exactly what they want to do when they 
graduate, and this lets us see what professional engi- 
neers are doing on the job." 

ASHRAE helped students build contacts and 
networks, Scott Stroshane, vice president and fifth- 
year student in architectural engineering, said. 

"Once you get into the working world, the profes- 
sional society is tight," he said. "If you would have a 
question, then ASHRAE would help you out or point 
you in the direction of someone who could."

lymnastics Club membership declined to four 
participants after its practice facilities were moved 
from Ahearn Field House to the Manhattan Gym- 
nastics Center. 

Jeremy Cowell, club president and senior in me- 
chanical engineering, said the move was due to the 
Lifestyles Improvement through Fitness Enhance- 
ment program, which offered a fitness training pro- 
gram to faculty, staff and community members. 

"Being moved from Ahearn really hurt member- 
ship because of the cost. When we were in Ahearn, 
members paid around $18 for insurance and $5 dues 
for the whole year. Now that we have moved, 
members still pay the insurance, plus $5 per practice. 


We work out twice a week, so it can really add up," 
Cowell said. 

The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics sup- 
ported the club financially to help increase member- 
ship and awareness of the club. 

"I put ads in the Collegian every other week," 
Cowell said. "After my first ad, I received 15 calls 
from interested people." 

David Vacca, junior in accounting and finance, 
was one of those interested. 

"I saw the ad in the paper and started coming to 
work out," Vacca said. "It's great because everyone 
here encourages each other. We ease each other's 
fears and help each other try new skills."

The Defensive 

ie K-State Taekwondo Club kicked into action 
as the largest tae kwon do program in Manhattan. 

The club, affiliated with the world's largest mar- 
tial-arts program, the American Taekwondo Asso- 
ciation, grew to 50 members after starting in 1991 
with just three members. Because the club began 
with few college participants, it became affiliated 
with the University to enable students to compete on 
a collegiate level and to build membership. 

"We affiliated the club with K-State to focus on 
college students so members could compete on more 
of a college level," Mark House, senior in history, 
said. "Even though we're a K-State organization, the 
tae kwon do instructors for the club have guidelines equipment, you're out of luck. At the world cham-

Another activity the club planned was continuing 
its tournament success. Excelling at tournaments sent 
1 1 members to the Songahm World Championships 
in Little Rock, Ark., in June 1994, House said. 

Sally Wallis, vice president andjunior in chemis- 
try, placed first in every tournament and placed first 
in forms and sparring at the world championships. 

Seven other members also placed at the tournament. 

"The world championships were unlike anything 
I've ever been exposed to," D.C. Lehman, graduate 
student in economics, said.

/eing part of the team meant more than bumping 
around on the ice. 

For members of the K-State Ice Hockey Club, it 
meant pounding the sport into the life of the com- 
munity and one another. 

"Hockey is special to me because, being in Kan- 
sas, you don't hear much about hockey," said Glenn 
Kipp, Manhattan resident and team member since 
1985. "You don't think people play hockey here. 
Yet, here in this college town, you have a team that 
plays hockey against other colleges." 

Hockey was non-existent in Manhattan before 
resident Ted Conn started the hockey club in 1985. 

Conn, who had leukemia, died in December. 

"We decided to dedicate the season to Ted," 
Kipp said. "If it wasn't for him, nobody would be 
playing hockey in this town. We'd be hitting a puck 
around wishing we had a club." 

When the Manhattan Parks and Recreation Ice 
Rink opened for the season Dec. 1, Kipp's brother 
Chuck and four other members of the hockey team 
taught 60-70 local children to ice skate and play 

"We have so much interest in the ice rink — it's 
amazing," Chuck Kipp, senior in English, said. "This 
is the only ice rink I know of in Kansas." 

Because of the novelty, the ice was often packed 
with children waiting to take lessons. 

"On weekends, we have too many kids on the 
ice," he said. "Some have to sit on the sidelines. 
When we first opened, I remember no one knew 
what hockey was. And now it's getting really big." 

As the popularity of hockey in Manhattan in- 
creased, so did the hockey club's record. 

In the 1994-95 season, the team played Southern 
Illinois University, the University ofNebraska, South- 
ern Methodist University in Texas and Drake Uni- 
versity in Iowa, and won all games except the Drake 

"We had a record-breaking year," said hockey 
club president Chuck Downey, graduate student in 
horticulture and team member for three years. "We've 
won more games in the first half than we used to win 
in a whole year." 

Part of this was due to an increase in membership. 
While team members in previous years had been 
from out of state, Downey said this year the team 
recruited four students from Kansas City. 

"We've been going strong for four years," Glenn 
Kipp said, "and this year we have the strongest team 
we've had in four years. We're more organized — I 
hate to use that O word." 

Getting organized for play meant year-round

preparation for the hockey season that began in 
October and ran until late April or early May, 
Downey said. 

With 25-30 games a year, most of which were out 
of state, traveling was a way of life for the team. 

Managing the team, which had 14 regular mem- 
bers and 10 alternates, proved a formidable task, 
Downey said. 

"We get along pretty good," he said. "But we get 
into squabbles because we don't have a coach. Some 
of us try to play coach." 

If only one thing was remembered about the 
season, Kipp said he hoped it would be Conn's gift 
to the community — ice hockey. 

"I love hockey," Kipp said. "A lot of these guys, 
if they weren't here, they'd be playing hockey 
somewhere else. I've gotten to be friends with these 
guys, and I kind of watch their backs on the ice."

lerman culture wasn't lost on the University 
audience, and for the German Folk Song Choir, that 
was something to sing about. 

Christiane Kuechler, graduate student in mod- 
ern languages, started the choir in the fall. 

"I have an exchange grant. My professor in 
Germany thought we should bring some culture 
over with us," Kuechler said. "I can sing, play the 
piano and guitar, so I decided to start the choir." 

Members of the choir were not required to be 
music or German majors. They only had to be 
interested in the German culture. 

"I wanted to keep up with the German. I figured 
this was a good way to hear the language and speak the Baker, senior in feed science management and mod-

Most choir members were familiar with the Ger- 
man language, and two German teachers were in- 
volved with the club, Kuechler said. 

"There are three people who don't know Ger- 
man at all," she said. "They learn by phonetics. They 
are doing quite well, too. I say the words, then they 
say them, and I translate." 

The group performed a variety of German songs 
and explained each song prior to singing it. 

Although being in the choir was a learning expe- 
rience for many, weekly practices were also oppor- 
tunities for enjoyment.

Texas, as part of the first Mid-

ree members of the Men's Rugby Football Club 
were part of the first Midwestern team to win the 
Collegiate All Stars game. 

The Heart of America Collegiate All Stars team 
helped create history by compil- 
ing a 4-0 record at the Sept. 1-2 
tournament in Austin, Texas. 

"It was the first time any team 
from Heart of America had won 
the tournament," Jim Lyczak, se- 
nior in horticulture, said. 

The club had four players se- 
lected to represent the region in 
the tournament: Lyczak; Steve 
Dayne, junior in microbiology; 
Kelby Hellwig, senior in park re- 
sources management; and Matt L. 
Smith, sophomore in agribusiness. 

But Bayne broke his leg and 
was unable to play. 

"We were doing drills, and I 
broke my leg," Bayne said. "The 
break healed, but I couldn't play 
for the rest of the semester be- 
cause I tore ligaments." 

The remaining three mem- 
bers competed as part of the Heart 
of America All Stars team, playing 
against four other teams from 
across the nation. 

Members' pride grew during 
the tournament, Lyczak said. 

"We all went out to this pizza 
place, and we had our T-shirts 
on," Lyczak said. "These little 
kids thought we were a profes- 
sional football team."

members found themselves playing against some of 
the same Heart of America team members. 

"We kinda went after each other," Lyczak said, 
"and yet it is fun having the friendships."

That was how Scott Bauer, president of Secret 
Masters of Fandom and sophomore in physical sci- 
ences, described the new science-fiction club. 

"You hear the name Secret Masters of Fandom, and 
people have no idea what to expect," he said. "It's a groups in conspiracy to take over the world." 

by Jamie Congrcm 

The club's name originated from a game called 
Illuminati by Steve Jackson, he said. 

"We contacted him and asked if we could use a 
name ofFa card from his game," Bauer said. "Illumi- 
nati is an old board game that tries to control various 

sleeper club — not many people have heard about us at 
first, and then all of the sudden people willjust wake up." 

The club focused on all aspects of science fiction, 
ranging from "Star Trek" to card games. 

"We appreciate science fiction and all of its 
aspects. Most of us are interested in one or two things 
of a wide variety," Bauer said. 

Besides Illuminati, members participated in a 
variety of activities related to science fiction. 

Despite their numerous activities, Secret Masters 
of Fandom was a laid-back club, Thad Williams, vice 
president and senior in art, said. 

"It's fun with minimal effort," he said. "We're a 
piece of sub-culture."

Fusing the 




vSU Cheer Squad members spent nine days in 
Hawaii getting ready for the Jeep Eagle Aloha Bowl. 

"We didn't cheer until the eighth day, so we had 
a lot of fun lying out on the beach and not worrying 
about anything," Al Un, junior in psychology, said. 

"The athletic department did a great job, being 
able to send so many of us," he said. "Six couples (six 
cheerleaders and six yell leaders) 
got to go for the whole trip." 

The cheer squad consisted of 
one varsity and one junior- varsity 
team, each of which had eight 
men and eight women. Varsity 
members cheered at all football 
games, while the JV team helped 
at home games. 

Members with seniority were 
chosen to cheer at the bowl game 
and represent the team at other 
activities on the island. 

"We had pep rallies and a few 
showings to do, but we had a lot of 
free time to see the island," Amy 
Parish, junior in pre-medicine, said. 

Beyond cheering at games, the 
squad had other responsibilities 
during the year. All 32 members 
attended UCA College Cheer- 
leading Camp Aug. 10-13. 

"We did really well at camp 
this year," Suzanne McKee, jun- 
ior in biology, said. "It was in 
Milwaukee, but we stopped in 
Chicago and stayed there for a 
night. It was a lot of fun." 

The squad performed well at 
the camp, especially in the chant 

"This was a huge camp — over 
1,000 people attended it. We 
learned new material and practiced, then competed 
in many different categories," Parish said. "We 
placed third in the chant competition, which is really 
good for a camp that size." 

Un said the camp was vital for new squad members. 

"Camp was a lot of fun and really important, 
especially for the younger people on the squad," Un 
said. "It's a really good time to get to know each 

Camaraderie among team members was not only 
evident at camp but also at the Aloha Bowl. 

"We spent one-fifth of our day together every 
day. Things got personal, but we were able to put

everything past us to get the job done," Un said. "We 
grew up together — it's like a family. It's a nice thing 
to know that out of a campus of 20,000 people that 
you have 20 good friends who you can talk to." 

During spring semester, members of both squads 
tried out for a separate team that concentrated on 
qualifying for the National Cheerleading Competi- 
tion. Those not chosen for the national squad were 
on the game squad. 

"Second semester we worked on putting together 
a videotape of a cheer, chant, fight song, crowd 
involvement and also included a skills section. 

"We show some video ofjust us and other shots of 
us performing in front of a crowd. They (the judges) 
like to see what we can do by ourselves, but also how 
we can get the crowd involved," Parish said. 

Both Parish and Un said the team was skilled. 

"We have a really talented team this year. Every- 
one is so well-rounded and can dance and stunt and 
do everything well," Parish said. 

Un agreed. 

"In the past, it has always been obvious that some 
people were better than others, " he said. "This year, 
everyone has been at the same level, and we all look 
to each other as role models. Everyone is so strong 
this year."

hoped to make friends while strengthening their halls and greek houses to off-campus apartments and 

faith in God. 

With 110 members, they took strides toward 
fulfilling that vision. 

President Brent Green, senior in animal sciences 
and industry, said he hoped to have about 20 percent 
more members by year's end. 

"The more people that know about us, the more 
students we will be able to get involved," Green said. 

Members tried many methods of recruitment. 

"We have a table in the Union every Wednes- 
day, and we had a booth during fee payment," 
Heather Fosberg, junior in human development and 
family studies, said. 

Consisting of both students and community 

houses, he said. 

The entire group met Fridays and did more than 
just study the Bible, Fosberg said. 

"We also do a lot of singing during meetings — 
that's a lot of fun," she said. 

The group also had skits at meetings to promote 
different activities, Rebecka Hodges, junior in ac- 
counting, said. 

Anybody could join InterVarsity as long as they had 
an interest in Christ and meeting friends, Green said. 

The club led to friendships, spiritual growth and 
the opportunity to get to know God better, mem- 
bers said.

multicultural mixture of people took part in 
Hispanic Awareness Month during October. 

Members of the Hispanic American Leadership 
Organization sponsored numerous events during the 
month including a culture night. The Oct. 15 event 
gave students a chance to celebrate Hispanic Aware- 
ness Month in the International Student Center. 

"It was really impressive, the large turnout and all 
the different people from different backgrounds," 
Carmen Sanchez, junior in civil engineering, said. 

On Oct. 22, HALO brought in a salsa and reggae 
band to play at Bombers, an Aggieville bar. 

Group members also organized fundraisers to 
help pay for a trip they took to the Midwest National 
Hispanic Conference in Chicago. Besides having a 
car wash, the group sold T-shirts. 

At the Chicago conference, which was during the 
last weekend of October, members attended different 
workshops in which they listened to lecturers. One of 

by Chris Dean 

the lecturers was Vice President Al Gore. 

"It was pretty neat," Elda Pecina, sophomore in 
social work, said. "I thought that in a room of 5,000 
Hispanics he might be a little intimidated, but he 
seemed to fit in. He even spoke Spanish to us." 

The club also participated in the Racial and 
Ethnic Harmony Week walk, in which they wore 
the shirts they had for the trip to Chicago. 

"The people who participated were mainly His- 
panic. Caucasian Americans, African Americans and 
Asian Americans didn't really participate," Ohrenberg 
said. " I was a little disappointed at the lack of diversity." 

Although the week's activities weren't as diverse 
as some wanted, Katrisha Thomas, freshman in pre- 
health professions, said she was impressed with the 
variety of people who got involved. 

"I thought it was really good because we got 
people to participate and learn about the Hispanic 
cultures and traditions," she said.

t wasn't just a club. It was a corporation. 

Started in the early 1950s, the K-State Flying 
Club Inc. originally was affiliated with the Univer- 
sity but later became self-supported, Sam Knip, 
flying club president and K-State alumnus, said. 

You still have to have a connection with K-State 
because that's what is stated in our bylaws," Knip 
said. "When we were originally chartered, that was 
one of the requirements." 

The club, the second largest in the state, owned 
five airplanes, which were kept at the Manhattan 
Municipal Airport. Of the 65 members, about half 
were students, and the rest were faculty, staff and 
alumni, Knip said. 

For liability reasons, the club had been a corpora-

tion since it began, Larry Sampson, flying club 
member, said. Because of this, joining the club 
meant members had to purchase stock certificates. 

You have to buy $200 in stock, but you end up 
getting all of that back," Mike Newcomb, freshman 
in pre-medicine, said. "You buy stocks in the com- 
pany, and through that, the planes are rented out to 
you at an hourly rate half that of the airport's rental 

Knip said the purpose of the organization, which 
had about 10 club-approved instructors, was simply 
to promote aviation. 

"The best way to do that is to find people who 
want to learn," he said. "I learned how to fly with the 
flying club." 

After every 
flight, club 
members log

Program Council hit the big time by 
bringing nationally known musical acts to campus. 

UPC's Special Events Committee was able to 
sponsor a concert after receiving $19,000 from the 
Union Expansion fund. The Nov. 7 Live concert with 
opening acts Weezer and Fatima Mansions was the 
first concert since the early 1980s UPC arranged, Ann 
Claussen, UPC program director, said. 

"The last time we did a concert like this was 1 984, 
a Starship concert," Christy Drake, Special Events 
Committee chairman and sophomore in political 
science, said. "This year, with the Union Expansion 
fund, we were able to pull off a higher level of 
programming again." 

Drake said organizers learned how to plan for the 

by Ashley Schmidt 

event as they went along. 

In its second year, the Multicultural Committee 
tried a variety of new activities, many of which were 
during Black History Month in February. Fusion, a 
program hosted Feb. 17 in McCain Auditorium by 
members of the nationally known group Arrested 
Development, involved music, dance and narration 
from African cultures. 

"It was something that hadn't been done for the 
students that involved both history and education," 
Mary Taylor, fall Multicultural Committee chair- 
man and senior in psychology, said. "We thought 
students would like the tact that the group did have 
ties to Arrested Development."

The Fusion audience did more than just watch the 
program, Taylor said. 

"There was a limbo section in the program, and 
a lot of students went up to do that. The DJ also 
played music from the '60s, '70s and '80s, and 
everyone was allowed to go on the stage to dance 
during these times." 

Proposed by the Black Student Union, the Feb. 
18 Ebony Fashion Revue in the Union Ballroom 
was another new program the Multicultural Com- 
mittee sponsored. Clothes for the event were pro- 
vided by local retail businesses. 

"We had about 24 models that ranged in all ages, 
sizes and colors," Tasa Chatman, spring Multicultural 
Committee chairman and freshman in pre -journal- 
ism and mass communications, said. "We weren't in 
front of people we knew and saw every day, but we 

were still comfortable." 

Another important event sponsored by the 
Multicultural Committee was Ashanti, a three- 
woman rhythm-and-blues group, Taylor said. The 
committee did little promotion for the Oct. 7 con- 
cert, but had an unexpectedly large turnout. 

"All we did was play a CD outside the Union 
Stateroom, and people would flock to the table and 
say 'Who is this?'" Taylor said. "This was the first 
time in about 25 years that this type of program has 
been brought in for students of color. We planned 
for 100 people, but about 350 showed up." 

The Multicultural Committee's programs were 
designed to involve all types of students, Taylor said. 

"By doing the programming, we have helped to 
make multicultural students a part of the campus," 
she said. "I like being part of the solution, not the

'onfusion over the University's discrimination 
policy almost resulted in the elimination of Arnold 
Air Society from K-State's student organizations. 

The Student Governing Association considered 
eliminating AAS after finding a discrepancy between 
the organization's admissions standards and the 
University's discrimination policy. 

"My understanding is, to be in Arnold Air Soci- 
ety, one of the requirements is you've got to be an 
Air Force ROTC cadet, and to be an ROTC cadet, 
you cannot be gay," Cadet Russell Allen, AAS fall 
commander and junior in criminology, said. 

Since the club was affiliated with the Air Force 
ROTC, it was required, by federal law, to bar entry 
to members displaying homosexual conduct. AAS 
had to follow this since it was governed not by the 
University, but by federal law. It would not, how- 
ever, discriminate against individuals who did not 
disclose their sexual orientation, Allen said. 

BY Iacey Biery 

Ben Clouse, SGA treasurer and senior in account- 
ing, said confusion resulted in the fall when AAS tried 
to register with the Union Activities Board, and it 
appeared K-State's policy conflicted with federal law. 

"The UAB guidelines state that we must follow 
the federal non-discrimination clause," Clouse, fall 
UAB chairman, said. "With the new federal law, it 
doesn't actually discriminate (against homosexuals) 
under 'don't ask, don't tell.' UAB has to follow 
federal law because we receive federal funding." 

AAS continued to be a student organization 
because it had an auxiliary club, Silver Wings/Angel 
Flight, which had no entrance restrictions. 

Cadet Anthony Woodcock, junior in computer 
engineering, said AAS offered the chance to help the 

"It gives you the opportunity to be in a leadership 
position and the opportunity to serve the community," 
he said. "It introduces you to what ROTC is about."

cCain Student Development Council became 
the McCain Ambassadors to better reflect members' 
job descriptions. 

"We wanted to show that we were more than just 
ushers," said Todd Lakin, McCain Ambassadors 
president and senior in industrial engineering and 
pre-law. "So, we changed our name to show that we 
are actually ambassadors for the arts." 

The group also set up a constitution and devel- 
oped an executive board. 

The McCain Ambassadors, created in 1987 by the 
Friends of McCain board of directors to help involve 
students in McCain's activities, hung posters adver- 
tising upcoming events and ushered at the perfor- 
mances. When members of the organization ushered 
two events, they received a free ticket to donate to 
local children. This year, the tickets were given to the 
children of the Big Lakes Developmental Center Inc. 

The ambassadors also helped with the Friends of 
McCain's annual children's party. The Feb. 5 perfor- 
mance of Avner the Eccentric, a silent clown who 

by Chris Dean 

did magic tricks and physical comedy routines, was 
the production chosen for the event because it was a 
family show everyone could enjoy, Lakin said. 

Before the show, McCain Ambassadors dressed 
up and helped guide 135 children ages 3 to 13 from 
station to station, where they played games, ate pizza 
and got their pictures taken. 

"They had the entire tunnel to the green room 
done in black lighting, and the kids loved that," Beth 
Hochberg, sophomore in pre-health professions, 
said. "They also had some engineers create a slime 
stuff that was the hit of the party." 

Joining McCain Ambassadors was an option for 
any student, regardless of their major, Emily Simpson, 
sophomore in music education, said. 

Participants had a variety of reasons for becomming 
McCain Ambassadors. 

"With trying to dual major in industrial engineer- 
ing and pre-law, I don't have the time to be in the 
theater in college, but I still wanted to be involved 
and help out," Lakin said.

common heritage brought members of African 
Student Union and Black Student Union together 
Feb. 21 for Uniting Our Roots, a panel discussion 
that was part of Black History Month. 

Uniting Our Roots was organized to create com- 
munication and interaction between the groups. The 
panel consisted of three members from each club. 

"Culturally, we are close together, but there is a 
gap between the two organizations," Siendou 
Ouattara, ASU president and graduate student in 
electrical engineering, said. "I don't know what they 
think the African culture is. It's always refreshing to 
check what you're thinking with someone who is 
actually fresh from there. It's better than reading it in 
a book." 

Although the groups were united by their African 

by the Royal Purple staff 

heritage and skin color, lines ot communication 
were closed, Ouattara said. The discussion focused 
on opening dialogue between BSU and ASU. 

Panel members said a relationship between both 
sides was important even though the need for it had 
not been expressed before. 

"We have a lot in common, but we need to unite 
to become a strong voice for the black community," 
Rhonda Lee, BSU panel member and sophomore in 
journalism and mass communications, said. 

The discussion closed with a presentation ot 
resolutions to foster communication between the 

"Everything starts with talking," Ouattara said. 
"If you don't talk, you won't know what's wrong, 
what's right."

.embers of KSU Theatre sacrificed spare time 
out of their love for the stage. 

"I've been in a show ever since I've been here at 
KSU," Gretchen Morgan, senior in theater, said. 
"It's very strange when I'm not in one because I 
don't know what to do with myself" 

Being involved in the group sometimes meant 
giving up time for studying. 

"It is difficult to prioritize things because theater 
is a huge time commitment," Tim Aumiller, gradu- 
ate student in theater, said. "We rehearse five nights 
a week and approximately three hours a night." 

The group performed the drama "Speed the 
Plow" in October, the musical "Chicago" in No- 
vember, the comedy "The Heidi Chronicles" in 
February and the opera "Street Scene" in March. 

Performers were undergraduate or graduate stu- 
dents, Marci Maullar, managing director of KSU 


Theatre, said. 

"The Heidi Chronicles," Feb. 16-18 and Feb. 22- 
25, was about a woman growing up in the Baby 
Boomer era. 

"We learned a lot from the show because we're 
not Baby Boomers," Aumiller said. "The directors 
had to educate us every night about things in the play 
because there is a lot of name dropping in the story, 
like with bands, artists and cultural icons." 

Performing as three different characters made 
"The Heidi Chronicles" a challenge for Morgan. 

"It was a very good experience for my acting 
education," she said. "They were roles I'd never 
played before because, I guess because of my appear- 
ance, I always get cast as the 'little girl next door.'" 

Aumiller said half the performers in "The Heidi 
Chronicles" were graduate students.

"When I first came here and got in the shows, 
there was a lot of bonding because we didn't know 
each other that well," said Aumiller, who played Dr. 
Peter Patrone. "Now we've all been here awhile, 
and there is a more professional atmosphere." 

Laura Camien, who played Heidi Holland's best 
friend, Susan Johnston, said competition was intense 
among those auditioning for roles. 

"It is pretty competitive, especially since our 
auditions are open to the entire University," Camien, 
graduate student in theater, said. "We have people 
who aren't theater majors even trying out for parts." 

Before the opening of each show, the cast had a 
weekend of extra preparation. 

"We have rituals, especially during tech week- 
end, the weekend before we open, when we set up 
the lighting and technical things," Aumiller said. 
"We also have a cue-to-cue practice, where we go 
through the speaking and non-speaking cues." 

With so many theater majors together, there were 
always crazy things happening, Camien said. 

"The exciting part about the theater is that there 
is always something strange that happens every night 
in practice," she said. "That's what it's like with live 
theater — it's unpredictable."

About 1 5 members loaded into vans and drove 12

students the environmental aspects of the park and 
how the park was run, Troy Gilmore, club president

as wading into a stream to study ecosystems and 
canoeing up the stream into a beaver marsh area. 

In addition to attending the consortium, mem-

speak about a variety of subjects. 

Carol Laue, senior in park resources manage-

way to open doors for members because the speakers 
were from a variety of fields. 

"It is really good because it gives us ideas about the 
different things we can do after graduation," Laue

playing baseball at the University of Northern Iowa from 1 96 1 to 1 964. 

A number of situations, including marriage and injury, prevented 
him from playing in the majors. 

"I didn't give that opportunity a chance," Homolka said. "I've been 
looking for a replacement." 

He found that replacement through umpiring. 
He won the 1 994 National Baseball Congress' Umpire 
of the Year award and was selected to officiate at the 
1995 College World Series. 

But baseball wasn't his only passion. He also 
found enjoyment through teaching. 

"Any way I can help — in the rules of calculus, or 
in the rules of baseball — then I've helped to make 
a better person," he said. 

Holmolka found similarity between the class- 
room and the ballfield. 

"It's kind of like teaching ," he said. "You have 
to be a leader if you're an umpire." 

Homolka said his biggest moment in umpiring 
was when he was asked to officiate at Wrigley Field 
during the umpires strike in 1991, but the strike was 
called off while he was driving to Chicago. 

"I look back on that as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," he said. 

Homolka also enjoyed the company of his three sons, Eric, Scott and 
Bobby, who were in their early 20s. 

"They have been supportive of me and a big part of my life," he said. 

Despite his family's support, Homolka faced challenges on his own. 

"You don't accomplish every goal," he said. "If you did, those 
weren't high enough." 

Any way I can help — 
in the rules of calculus, or in 
the rules of baseball — then 
I've helped to make a better

hrough a season of struggle, 
the baseball team showed im- 
provement and gained hope. 

Youth, inconsistency and the 
fifth-toughest schedule in the na- 
tion added up to a 13-43 record 
for the team. 

"We had a very young ball- 
club," Coach Mike Clark said. 
"We started a lot of freshmen and

and seniors."

"We put in a lot of time and 
effort," Hess said. "We were in 
the best condition in the off-sea- 
son, and it just didn't pay off." 

One factor in the team's lack of 
success was the freshmen's lack of 
playing experience. 

"They didn't know what to 
expect. They had to learn," junior 
catcher Chris Bouchard said. "Ev- 
ery new situation brought a new 

Despite their losing record, 
Clark said the players had good 
attitudes and competed hard. 

"The highlight of the season 
was definitely beating Oklahoma, 
who went on to win the College 
World Series," Clark said. 

Five players were recognized 
with Big Eight Conference hon- 
ors. Freshman shortstop Todd 
Fereday was named to the first- 
team all-Big Eight and was also 
honored as freshman all-Ameri- 

Other honors went to Hendrix 
and junior catcher Matt Miller,

Hendrix said the award helped 
ease the pain of the losing season, 
but it didn't make up for it. 

"I would've traded it (the 
award) in a second for a winning 
season," Hendrix said. 

Senior second baseman Jay 
Kopriva and Bouchard received 
all-Big Eight honorable mentions. 

In addition to conference rec- 
ognition, several players had indi- 
vidual accomplishments. 

Fereday had one of the best 
freshman seasons at the plate in K- 
State history. He played in 55 of

Kopriva wrapped up his career 
hitting .305, third best on the 
team. He had 60 hits in 55 games, 
which placed him second on the 
team in total hits. 

Miller, who also was the back- 
up quarterback for the football 
team, was the leading hitter in 
total games and Big Eight games. 
In 24 league games, he hit .330 
and had 29 hits. 

Hendrix hit 12 home runs, 
which put him second on the all- 
time, single-season home-run 
chart for K-State. In the team's 
16-14 win over Oklahoma, he hit 
three home runs, which tied the 
Big Eight and K-State records for 
most home runs in a game. 

The team set two main goals 
for the season. One was to be 
competitive in every ballgame, and 
the other was to go to the Big 
Eight Tournament, Clark said.

played better baseball," Clark said.

pointing season for the women's 
golf team. 

"We need to improve our short 
games and work on the mental 
side of the game to play smart," 
Coach Mark Elliott, said. 

The team had some trouble 
transforming classroom confidence 
into golf-course confidence. 

"They need to work on their 
self-confidence," Elliott said. 

The team had more Big Eight

cans than any other Big Eight

members were honored.

all-Americans was senior Jacque 

An eye injury prevented 
Wright from competing during 
the fall season. Coach Tim 
Jennings said the loss of Wright 
hurt the team because she was a 
strong leader. 

Wright said the lack of playing 
time was frustrating. 

"It was really disappointing. 
I've been kind of bored this se- 
mester," she said. "I don't enjoy 
not playing." 

However, she thought her ab- 
sence proved beneficial. 

"I thought it was probably good 
for the team in the long run. A lot 
of the younger girls got a chance 
to compete more," Wright said. 

Jennings said junior Debbie 
Chrystal served as a quiet leader. 

Despite Chrystal's leadership, 
the team had trouble dealing with 
the mental aspect of the game, 
Jennings and Elliott said. 

"Our goal was to consecutively 
improve at each tournament,"

Jennings said. "We had a couple 
girls make personal records, but 
nobody really stood out." 

Jennings said the team's scor- 
ing goal was to average 320 during 
tournament play, but the team fell 
short of the goal. 

"You have to get over the pres- 
sure you put on yourself," Chrystal 
said. "Competition takes a lot out

Debbie Chrystal, 
junior in accounting 


Texas native branded K-State with her leadership skills. 

Debbie Chrystal, junior in accounting, grew up in Bellville, Texas, 
but came to K-State to play for the women's golf team. 

Her decision to attend K-State instead of a Texas school was the 
right one, she said. 

"The big schools in Texas look at experience, something I didn't 
have much of," she said. 

Chrystal said she had a difficult time making the adjustment from 
high-school to college golf competition. 

"Coming out of high school, you're used to being 
the best at what you do. It wasn't like I planned to 
walk in and be the best player, but I expected to do 
better than I did," she said. "Coming back after my 
freshman year was the hardest thing I have ever 

Chrystal said she learned to deal with the pressures 
of being a golfer and student. 

"If you take one day at a time, it doesn't seem so 
overwhelming," she said. 

She became a leader both on and off the golf 
course during her years at K-State. 

Chrystal was one of the golf team's Big Eight 
Conference ail-American scholars. 
But her leadership roles grew gradually. 

"When I first came to school here, I just did golf and school." 
She said she added one activity a year to her schedule, first joining 
the Delta Delta Delta sorority and then becoming one of 26 College of 
Business ambassadors. 

Chrystal said she was confident in her leadership roles. 
"I feel I haven't chosen anything I couldn't handle." 
She hoped to leave a mark on the golf team. 
"I hope I can be remembered as someone that was diverse, as 
someone that was willing to try lots of things to see if I could do it," 
she said. 

"As far as golf goes, after I leave, I hope my teammates will 
remember me as trying to make their experience a little easier than 
when I was a freshman."

senior Troy Halterman, said. 

After a summer of hard work, 
the team had high hopes for the 
fall season. The 14-member team 
had seven returning players. 

"Our best players were return- 
ing, and they all expected good 
things to happen, and it did," Elliott 
said. "We won one tournament." 

The Illinois State Tournament, 
Oct. 3-4, was a victory for both 
the team and Halterman.

The pain of a disappointing season forces the 
players and coaches to seek a 



he ability to be among the 
the best in the country was within 
the grasp of the women's tennis 
team, but the results from the 
season were disappointing to both 
players and coaches. 

"We had the potential to be 
great and to turn heads, but be- 
cause of injury and illness, we 
were denied the chance to live up 
to our potential," Coach Steve 
Bietau said. 

After coming off the best fall 
season in the history of K-State in 
1993, the team was starting to 
turn heads and open eyes on the 
national level. Behind the leader- 
ship of K-State's most dominant 
player, junior Karina Kuregian, 
the team was ready to step up to a 
challenging spring schedule. 

"I felt we had a very strong 
schedule. As we continue to lift 
the level of our program, we are 
looking for more upper-level 
competition," Bietau said. "We 
are excited to take on the chal- 
lenges of playing the best teams in 
the country." 

The Wildcats opened the sea- 
son by losing to Notre Dame 1-8 
but bounced back a week later to 
capture a victory over Utah that 
Bietau called "the best perfor- 
mance of the year." 

After that win, the team began 
preparing for the Big Eight Con- 
ference season. 

Kuregian made an impressive 
showing at the Rolex Intercolle- 
giate Championships, known as 
the year's toughest tournament. 
After losing her first match to the 
tournament's No. 3 seed, Kuregian 
went on to win three straight 
matches. She then lost a close 

by Jamie Bradley 

match in the consolation final to 
Pascale Piquemal of Mississippi. 

At that 

point, illnesses 
and injuries 
caught up with 
the team.

Although she was named an 
all-American, an honor no K- 
State tennis player had ever re- 
ceived, Kuregian wasn't happy. 

"Winning all-American didn't 
ease the pain," she said. "I just 
wanted to get back and play again." 

Without Kuregian, the Cats 
matched up with Louisiana State 
in a losing effort, but they came 
back with an impressive 9-0 win 
over Creighton. 

Just when things looked as if 
they were getting back on track, 
the bottom fell out, and the Cats 
lost their next seven matches. 

When sophomore Alex Thome 
and freshman Karen Nicholson 
both became ill, the team was no 
longer able to fill all match posi- 

Just before the beginning of 
Big Eight play, freshman Masha 
Meidell, one of the team's top 
players, left the team for personal 
reasons. With Meidell out, four of 
the five top players were gone. 

Senior Summer Ruckman was 
forced to step into the No. 1 
singles spot, followed by senior 
Martine Shrubsole, Lagerstrom 
and senior Brooke Brundige. 

These four gained a victory 
over Missouri in their first Big 
Eight match but did not win an- 
other. Their final conference 
record was 1-6. 

Nicholson and Thome re- 
turned in time for the Big Eight 
tournament and rallied for a win 
over Iowa State but lost to Colo- 

rado. The Cats finished in sixth 
place with a record of 5-19. 

Kuregian came on strong to- 
ward the end of the season. She 
was ranked No. 12 in the country 
among collegiate tennis players. 

She earned that ranking by 
making it to the championship 
round of the Rolex Regional 
Championships in Tucson, Ariz. 
Also at that tournament, Kuregian 
and doubles partner Shrubsole fin- 
ished second.

strength, endurance and speed. 

The PowerCats Association 
was the behind-the-scenes 
weightlifting program that made 
improvement possible. 

The association was founded 
four years ago as a privately funded 
that provided 
financial sup- 
port for K-State 

The work- 
out program 
was mandatory 
for all varsity 

was open to ev- 
eryone for a fee. 
costs ranged 
from $40 to 


The fees 

provided extra 
training pro- 
grams and facili- 
ties for athletes. 
"The mo- 
ney from the 
dues and other 
private donations is what keeps 
the PowerCats facilities up," said 
Rod Cole, strength and condi- 
tioning coordinator. 

The association provided train- 
ing equipment for the Bud and 
Marti Newell Complex at the 
north end of Wagner Field.

Tim Buchanan, assistant 
strength coach, was in charge of 
the Olympic-sport programs, 
which included men's and 
women's basketball, volleyball, 
men's and women's track, baseball 
and women's tennis. 

Seven student assistants helped 
out in the weight room. 

Jeff Smith, former K-State foot- 
ball player, was hired to help by 
Coach Bill Snyder after Smith was 
injured during the 1992 season. 

Smith said the best part of the 
job was being able to work with 
the athletes. 

"Building relationships with all 
of the athletes is what I enjoyed," 
Smith said. 

K-State coaches also supported 
the program. 

"We have tremendous support 
from the coaches, which is good, 
because without it, it would make 
ourjobs extremely difficult," Smith 

"The coaches push their ath- 
letes because they see the advan- 
tages, such as the prevented inju- 
ries," he said. 

The ultimate goal of many foot- 
ball players was to gain admittance 
into the PowerCat Club. 

The club, with a membership 
of about 30, was exclusively for 
football players. 

To qualify as a club member, a 
player had to either clear 300 
pounds, bench press 400 pounds 
or squat 800 pounds. 

"It .. . brings the team together," 
Laird Veatch, senior linebacker, 
said,"because you are working hard

single K-State coffee mug sat on Jim Moore's windowsill. 

It was the only K-State souvenir the new volleyball coach displayed 
in his office. 

"I don't have any K-State memorabilia," Moore said as he pointed 
to his walls covered with frames of stories and plaques from his previous 
coachingjob at Northern Michigan University, which won the NCAA 
Division II National Championship in 1993. 

"One of the hardest things for this team is that I came off one of the 
greatest moments of my life," Moore said. 

Moore turned Northern Michigan's volleyball 
program around in five years with help from Stacy 
Metro, new assistant volleyball coach, who had 
worked with Moore for eight years as a player and 

"My first year we went 9-23, then 15-18, then 27- 
9 when she came here, then 34-4 and then 38-1," he 
said. "I want my players to become better people, not 
necessarily better players. I hope they didn't just learn 
how to win a national championship." 

Moore had a successful track record for turning a 
team around, which he said helped him recruit at K- 

"There's a lot of things that mean success, like 
winning and putting people in the stands," Moore 
said. "Players aren't going to come here because of our reputation. We 
have to prove to them that it will get better." 

Moore said he capitalized on several points to convince prospective 
players that the volleyball program would get better. 

"I can tell them about my track record. We're renovating our locker 
rooms. The players here are great, and we have a real advantage having 
Stacy here, a national team player as an assistant coach," Moore said. "I 
treat my players the way I wanted to be treated when I was a player." 
Although he had little time for himself, Moore said he needed to 
concentrate on volleyball in order to get the program into shape. 

"Life is not volleyball," he said. "I have to get things settled here 
before I can worry about myself I'll get to the point where I can have 
a life again."

to a winning season for the first 
time since 1988.

well to Moore's 
new coaching 
style, Kate De- 
Clerk, sopho- 
more middle 
blocker, said. 

"He just 
comes to play," 
DeClerk said. 

Another ad- 
justment was 
the swing of- 
fense Moore 
brought to the 
team, Kathryn 
Wylie, senior passer, said. 

"It's been working well, and 

by Debbie Pibnt 

the players have been responding 
well to their new positions," Wylie 
said. "We practice it all the time 
and put a lot of hard work into it." 

It would take the team some 
time to adjust to the swing of- 
fense, but Moore said the team 
would realize long-term benefits 
from it. 

He said he tried to help the 
team make adjustments to his 
coaching style through commu- 

"Communication is the key," 
Moore said. "You have to explain 
why you do the things you do 
from ... the way you interact with 
the players." 

Moore's philosophy was to 
encourage players to be self-disci- 
plined. He said he allowed players 
to be in control of the team, but he 
led by example. 

"No matter what, if coaches 
expect players to do something, 
the coach has to do the same," he 

This philosophy was evident in 
how team goals were set when 
Moore arrived. DeClerk said 
Moore allowed the players to set 
their own goals for the year. 

"We wanted to be the ones to 
set the goals because we're the 
ones trying to accomplish them," 
she said. 

One of those goals was to reach 
the Big Eight Championships.

sophomore "That was 

middle blocker important be- 
cause we broke 
the streak," she said. "Plus, every- 
one always puts more emphasis on 
a game against KU." 

Wins like the one against KU 
helped build the team's confi- 

dence, Moore said. 

"Winning is the only way to 
build confidence and get perfor- 
mance," he said. "I try to create 
situations for them to win, but 
they have to make it happen." 

The team's positive attitude 
helped create winning situations, 
DeClerk said. 

"It seems like everyone was 
here to play volleyball, and they 
were ready to play," she said. 

The team ended the season 
with a 0-3 loss to the 14th-ranked 
Colorado Buffaloes. The loss 
moved the team to a 3-9 record in 
the Big Eight Conference and a 
14-13 record overall. 

With a winning season behind 
them, team members faced the 
challenge of continuing improve- 
ment. Recruiting was the team's 
greatest challenge during second 
semester, Moore said. 

"We need to keep getting play- 
ers who can compete and con- 
tinue to improve every day."

"The goal this season was for 

each kid to train and progress 

individually, because we weren't 

competing as a team," Cliff 

Rovelto, the 

team's new 

coach, said. 

The one- 
year probation 
was part of the 
sanctions against

violated by 
former coach 
John Capriotti. 
Although the

McGrew said he knew what it

"I've been injured a lot in the 
past, so the key for me was to stay 
injury free," he said. 

The team finished the tourna- 
ment with two first-place finishes 
and one second-place finish. 
McGrew and Schultz took first in 
the javelin, and Green took sec- 
ond in the 200 meter. 

While in Arizona, senior Shan-

We do a lot 
of things together 
because we enjoy 
the same type of 


amily members who played together stayed together. 
Or at least that's the way it was for Kristen and Kirsten Schultz. 
Competing in many of the same events for the track team, the twins 
also lived together in a one-bedroom apartment near campus. 

But they weren't always roommates. Referring to Ottawa Univer- 
sity as the "O" word, Kirsten, junior in elementary education, said her 
decision to attend that university her first year of college was a mistake. 
The twins decided to split up after high school 
because they wanted to express their individuality, 
Kristen, junior in radio/television, said. 

"When we came out of high school and chose 
where to go to college, we kind of thought by going 
separate places we'd be more of individuals, but then 
kind of realized that we were individuals to start out 
with," Kristen said. 

Kirsten said the twins performed better when 
they were together and that she was proud of Kristen 
for getting an ail-American in the javelin, which was 
her favorite event as well. 

It also helped that they understood each other's 
competitive mindsets, Kristen said. 

"I have a harder time in my running than she 
does," Kristen said. "She's always done before me, but if we're running 
400, she'll meet me about the 100 mark and finish it with me so I'm not 
running alone, and that helps a lot," 

Practicing, competing and living together was easy for them, Kirsten 
said, because their schedules were compatible. 

"It's a lot easier because we both have practice, and we're both going 
to the same place," Kirsten said. "We have the same schedule basi- 
cally — I mean not as far as classes go, but as far as track and other things." 
With most of the same friends, Kristen said, the two also spent a lot 
of their free time together. 

"We go to movies together a lot because we have the same taste in 
movies, and we want to see the movies that everybody else doesn't like 
usually," Kristen said. "We do a lot of things together because we enjoy 
the same type of things." 

Kirsten broke in with a smile, "and it gives us more to argue about."

The cross country team found hope in young 
leaders and courage in seniors to make it to the 

freshman took the lead 
for the women's cross country 
team, while the men's team 
struggled through a rebuilding year 
and several disappointing meets. 

The season began Sept. 24 with 
the K-State Invitational, which 
the teams hadn't sponsored since 

"This first meet got the ball 
rolling for the girls," Coach Terry 
Drake said. "It gave Charity 
(Swartz) a lot of confidence in 
what she can do because of the 
success she had in the meet." 

Drake said he thought the in- 
vitational was a good opening meet 
and an opportunity to see if 
Warner Park, also the site for the 
Big Eight Championships, would 
be successful. 

Swartz, a freshman, placed third 
and was the team's top finisher in 
the meet. She was also the only 
team member competing in the 
NCAA Championships at the 
University of Arkansas Nov. 21. 
She finished in 50th place. 

"I thought that how she did 
was unbelievable. In the begin- 
ning of the race, she didn't get out 
as fast as I would have liked," 
Drake said. "At one kilometer, 
she was only beating 30 people, 
and she had to pass 100 people to 
finish in 50th place." 

Drake said he was impressed 
with Swartz's season, especially 
since she was a freshman. 

"When you start breaking it 
down and looking at it, she had a 
great season," Drake said. "She 
was the seventh-best freshman in 
the nation." 

Swartz said it took a while for 
her to get used to competing at 
the collegiate level.

"I used to be in the front all the 
time, and now I'm a middle-of- 
the-pack runner," Swartz said. 
"I'm not competing for first or 
second anymore. It takes a lot of 
pressure off of me." 

A strong finish in the Big Eight 
ships Oct. 29 
in Manhattan, 
was one of 
Drake's season 

"I thought 
how we got

Eight and

"We moved

While the women's team 
struggled with injury, the men's 
team was challenged by its youth. 
With only one returning runner, 
the men considered their season a 
rebuilding period. 

"Our team is really looking 
forward to next year," junior Geoff 
Delahanty said. "We've got good 
guys, and we should be nationally 

Drake said his goal for the men's 
team was to finish in the top six of 
the Big Eight Championships. The 
team almost met that goal with a 
seventh-place finish. 

"We fell a bit short of what I 
was hoping to accomplish. I was a 
bit disappointed in the season, but 
how well Billy (Wuggazer) ran 
made up for the whole deal," 
Drake said. 

"Billy's performance at Arkan- 
sas (during national competition) 
was good. He ran 24th in one of 

the best fields in the country. He 
ran his best times and one of the 
best times ever for K-State in a 
field of quality runners." 

The NCAA District V Cham- 
pionships hosted by Southwest 
Missouri State Nov. 12 in Spring- 
field, Mo., proved to be Wug- 
gazer's best performance of the 
season, as he placed 12th. 

"I felt that it was my best race, 
time-wise and competitive-wise," 
he said. "This year, my running 
was better because of my summer 
training, and also I was more fo- 
cused and had more motivation." 

The Big Eight Championships 
proved to be a disappointment for 
Wuggazer. Suffering from side 
cramps during the race, he fin- 
ished 38th behind teammates 
Delahanty, who placed 30th, and 
freshman Mikkel Bjergso, who 
placed 36th. 

Competition among the Big 
Eight teams was unbelievable, 
Drake said. 

"The team who got second in 
the nation (the University of Colo- 
rado) got third place in the Big 
Eight. With this great competi- 
tion, we've got our work cut out 
for us," Drake said. "To me, it's 
exciting to coach in what I think 
is the best conference in the U.S."

I set

Everybody was

for me. 

J.J. Smith 
senior running back 

e knew nothing of K-State football while growing up in Kansas City, 

But by the time J. J. Smith left the football program in December, he 
could list some of the most impressive Wildcat records — his own. 

As a freshman and sophomore playing behind Eric Gallon, he 
accumulated just 389 yards and two touchdowns. 

By the 1993 season, Smith had gained honorable-mention all-Big 
Eight Conference honors and was the only Big Eight 
player to have more than 700 rushing yards, with 
748, and more than 200 receiving yards, with 247. 
During the Copper Bowl, Smith helped propel 
the Wildcats to victory by breaking the bowl rushing 
record with 133 yards. 

Entering his last season, Smith was 1,045 yards 
short of the K-State rushing title. 

"I set breaking the record as my goal," he said. 
"Everybody was really pulling for it." 

On Nov. 26, the 6-foot, 205-pound running 
back made his mark. 

Entering the game, he was 200 yards from break- 
ing the all-time K-State rushing record. He ran the 
ball 227 yards against the University of Nevada-Las 
Vegas, which earned him the all-time rushing-leader 
title and set a school record for single-game rushing. 
His performance also put his season rushing total at 
1,073 yards, the third-highest in school history. During the game, 
Smith also rushed for two touchdowns, which put his career total at 22, 
another school record. 

Although he ended his Wildcat career as the all-time rushing record 
holder, Smith wasn't completely satisfied with his playing days. 

"We never beat Nebraska," he said. "I thought we would beat them 
this year." 

Though the season ended with a disappointing loss to Boston 
College in the Aloha Bowl, Smith, rated the No. 6 running back by the 
NFL draft report, looked ahead. 

"I hope to play in the NFL," he said. "That's my dream."

name on the 
record books,

the record for 
the most 
yards with

Rice. He was

Following one of the best football seasons in 
K-State history, the Wildcats faced tough 



The title, bestowed on the 
Wildcat football team after a vic- 
tory in the 1993 Copper Bowl, 
seemed to hold the promise of 
another successful season. 

The Cats had the talent and the 
energy. They had the home-field 
advantage against teams like Ne- 
braska. And at home, the Cats 
began the season undefeated in 
their previous 13 games. 

During the opening games at 
home, the Cats faced three non- 
conference teams, Southwestern 
Louisiana, Rice and Minnesota. 
Though they struggled against 
Rice, the Cats ended the home 
stand with a 3-0 record and a 
defense that stunned Minnesota 
35-0. The shutout was the Cats' 
first since a 10-0 win over Okla- 
homa State in 1992. 

"Our players know they played 
well. That's what's important, to 
get off the field and know that you 
played well," Coach Bill Snyder 
said after the Minnesota defeat. 
"They played awfully well." 

K-State continued its winning 
ways with a victory against the 
Kansas Jayhawks in Lawrence. It 
was the first time the Cats had 
beaten the Jayhawks in Memorial 
Stadium since 1969. 

With the stadium packed to 
capacity, the Cat defense held 
the Jayhawks scoreless for three 
quarters, and the offense posted 
21 points en route to a 21-13 

The fall of the streak, as well as 
one of the KU goal posts, gave 
about 7,000 Cat fans reason to 
celebrate as the team stole the 

by the Royal Purple staff 

Sunflower State rivalry bragging 
rights from the Jayhawks during 
the nationally televised event. 

"We took control and got 
things going. 
We just kept 
pounding and 
them," J.J. 
Smith, senior 
running back, 
said. "This one 
gives us a lot of 
confidence, and 
it's a good 
into the Ne- 
braska game." 

With a de- 
fense ranked 
22nd in the na- 
tion and an of- 
fense that was 
growing stron- 
ger with senior 
Chad May's 
passing, the Cats 
prepared to take 
on Big Eight 
Conference rival 

was facing K- 
State in Manhat- 
tan, where the 
Cats had not lost 
in 16 consecutive 
games. Add to 
that the absence 
of Comhusker starting quarterback 
Tommy Frazier, and the No. 16 Cats 
were in position to beat the No. 2 
team in the nadon.

(Continued from page 281) 

With momentum on K-State's 
side, the game was played before a 
sold-out crowd in KSU Stadium. 

Played in a steady rain, the 
game began with an intensity that 
never let up. Nebraska scored first 
and took a 7-0 lead late in the first 
quarter, but K-State came back to 
within a point, 7-6, in the second 
quarter. The Cat defense held 
Nebraska scoreless through the 
third quarter, but the Cornhuskers 
finally broke through and posted 
10 points in the fourth. 

The K-State offense, which had 
proven strong in four games, sput- 
tered, and the Cats lost 17-6. 

"Our team put a great deal of 
emphasis on this game," Snyder 
said. "I thought we were capable 
of winning, and so did our players. 
We made a great investment in 
emotion, work and attitude. It 
just didn't pay off." 

May agreed. 

"We went into this game with 
a lot of confidence and expected 
to win," he said. 

But the Cats had a week to 
regroup and prepare for yet an- 
other unbeaten team, Colorado, 
which was ranked No. 2 in the 

Colorado had played and de- 
feated five ranked teams. The 
Buffaloes were also seeking re- 
venge for a 16-16 tie in the 1993 

Played in Boulder, Colo., it 
was the third-consecutive game 
in which K-State had received 
national TV coverage. 

The Cats controlled the ball 


first and drove 75 yards for a Smith 
touchdown. The Cats had struck 
first, and the offense appeared to 
be rising out of the doldrums 
from the previous week. 

The Cat de- 
fense, which 
had been on fire 
the past few 
games, allowed 
two scoring 
drives in the 
first quarter, 
and the Cats fell 
behind 7-14. 
The score held 
until the third 
quarter, when 
the Cats had 
two scoring 
drives, which 
resulted in 14 

With mis- 
takes and a mi- 
nor injury to 
May stopping 
the Cats' of- 
fense, and the 
rushing of Colo- 
rado overcoming 
the Cats' de- 
fense, K-State 
suffered its sec- 
loss, 35-21. 

"It's extremely frustrating," 
Snyder said. "I think our kids 
played hard, but our kids al- 
ways play hard. That's a given. 
Our football team realizes that 
if we play well, we can play 
anybody, anywhere, anytime."

(Continued from page 283) 

The Cats proved Snyder right 
when they faced the Oklahoma 
Sooners in Norman the following 
week. The Cats had not won in 
Norman since the 1970 season 
and had not beaten the Sooners in 
back-to-back seasons since the 
1969 and 1970 seasons. 

With those factors facing them, 
the Cats stumbled through the 
first half. At halftime, with a score 
of 7-3, the offense had minus two 
yards rushing, and May had only 
47 yards on seven passes. 

But while the offense was strug- 
gling, the defense, which had saved 
many previous games, came on 

It was the defense that held the 
Sooners to just one field goal, and 
the defense, specifically junior 
cornerback Gordon Brown, that 
recovered a blocked punt and 
scored from 16 yards out. 

With the defensive effort in the 
first half, the offense was given 
time to jump-start its lifeless at- 
tack. In the second half, the team 
racked up 256 yards rushing, 113 
of which went to Smith. May 
ended the game with 115 yards 
passing, and the team was able to 
leave with its fifth-ever win in 
Norman, 37-20. 

In the following weeks, the 
Cats played Iowa State, Missouri 
and Oklahoma State to close out 
the Big Eight schedule and Ne- 
vada-Las Vegas to close out the 

In those final games, the Cats, 


who had a 5-2 record, committed 
mental mistakes that made for 
tense moments. 

In the Iowa State game, with 
the Cats up 38-0, the Cyclones 
slowly began a 
comeback by 
scoring 20 
points in the 
fourth quarter. 
The K-State 
defense then 
buckled down 
and held out 
until the final

proved more 
difficult to de- 

As the Cats 
led 20-18 with 
seconds left in 
the game, Mis- 
souri had the

State three-yard 
line, with a 
goal situation. 
The next play 
was a pass into the end zone. The 
Missouri receiver was there, but 
so was freshman cornerback Chris 
Canty. Canty slapped the ball 
away, preserving the Cats' vic-

the final time 17 seniors would

"There was a lot of emotion

Edwards, senior running back, said. 
"We all love each other like broth- 

Mike Ekeler, senior linebacker, 

"This has been the best four 
years of my life. I have played for 
the best coaches in the country, 
and I'm just living out a fantasy," 
Ekeler said. "I've had a blast. I 
love the fans, I love my teammates 
— ■ they're the best." 

Laird Veatch, senior linebacker, 
was just as emotional. 

"I had a really hard time going 
out there without tears in my 
eyes. It was a lot of fun, and it was 
something I'll never forget until 
the day I die." 

With about 32,000 cheering 
fans standing in the rain, the team 
piled up 408 yards and a 23-6 
victory to mark the fifth-straight 
win over the Oklahoma State 

With the OSU game's atten- 
dance, the season total exceeded 
225,000, a new K-State record, 
also, the win marked the first time 
K-State had won five Big Eight 
games for the first time since 1970. 
At 8-2, it was the first time in 
school history that the football 
team had won eight games in back- 
to-back seasons. 

Next up for the Cats was the 
Nevada-Las Vegas game, in which 
the team rolled over the Runnin' 
Rebels 42-3. 

Highlighting the game was 
Smith, who broke the K-State 
career rushing record with 2,210 


yards and became the single-game 
rushing leader with 227 yards. 
Smith placed third as a single- 
season rushing leader. 

With a 9-2 overall record, and 
its only losses to the No. 2 and No. 
5 teams in the nation, K-State was 
hoping for a Coalition Bowl invi- 
tation, Snyder said. Instead, the 
Cats spent Christmas in Hawaii, 
where they faced Boston College 
in the Jeep 



Eagle Aloha 
Bowl on 

Christmas Day. 

The game 
marked the first 
time a K-State 
football team 
had gone to 
bowls, and a 
win would so-

sition in the 

On game 
day, the K-State 
defense lived up 
to its No. 7 

ranking in the CNN Coaches Poll, 
and held Boston College to only 
12 points. But it was the Eagle 
defense that sacked May eight times 
for 78 yards. 

K-State's only scoring came 
when sophomore cornerbackjoe 
G ordon blocked a punt in the second 
quarter and senior free safety Chris 
Sublette, senior strong safety, re- 
covered it in the end zone for a 
touchdown. But Boston College 
prevailed 12-7. 

The Cats ended the season with 
a 9-3 record, a top 1 ranking and 
history-making performances. But 
eluding them was the champion- 
ship title. 

There was

Lost in Paradise 


Somewhere between Manhattan and paradise the K-State offense 
I was lost. 
Quarterback Chad May was sacked eight times by Boston College, 
and the K-State offense was shutout in the Dec. 25 Jeep Eagle Aloha Bowl 
loss in Honolulu. 

May never could solve the mystery of the Boston College blitz and 
was limited to 185 yards passing. The Eagles also hurt the Cats by 
picking off two passes. 

"Chad didn't throw the ball well," Coach Bill Snyder 
said. "I knew that; he knows that; and fans knew that." 
Boston College wasted no time in putting its 
score on the board. On the team's first play from 
scrimmage, running back David Green ran 51 yards, 
putting the ball on the K-State 22-yard line. 

Green's teammate Justice Smith finally punched 
the ball into the end zone from two yards out. 

After the extra point by David Gordon, Boston 
College had a lead of 7-0. Sophomore cornerback 
Joe Gordon created the Wildcats' only score of the 
afternoon by blocking a punt by Jeff Beckley. Senior 
back-up free safety Chris Sublette scooped up the loose 
ball, tying the score 7-7. 

"We prepared for that play all week, and it just 
opened up for me," Gordon said. 

Gordon was honored as K-State's most valuable 
player at the end of game. His performance included 
three tackles, an interception and two broken-up 

"Overall, I thought our defense played well," 
Snyder said. 

Besides the first drive, the K-State defense limited 
Boston College to 239 yards of total offense. 

"I was proud of the way our defense played 
today," senior linebacker Laird Veatch said. "They 
came at us with a few different formations than we 
thought, but I think we played pretty tough and 
made the right adjustments." 

It was Boston College's pressure on May that 
added two more points. Mike Mamula sat May 
down in his own end zone for a safety with 2:37 left 
in the first half. The play gave Boston College a 9- 
7 lead at halftime. The score remained 9-7 until 
David Gordon's field goal in the fourth quarter 
boosted Boston College's lead to 12-7 

Penalties may have killed the Cats as much as the 
Boston College defense. K-State had 9 infractions, 
which cost them 56 total yards. 

A holding penalty cost the Cats a 53-yard run by 
J.J. Smith in the third quarter. The play would have given K-State the 
ball on the Boston College 21 -yard line and a first down. Instead, K- 
State's next play started from its own 15-yard line. 

"They had a chance to finish in the top five or 10, and we wanted 
to win. It just wasn't our day," Snyder said. "Our younger players are 
going to have to live with this for a year, and it's going to be tough. I 
believe that it will make them work even harder."

lennis player Brooke Brundige was, 
by her own admission, an average athlete. 

For Brundige, self-confidence ranked 
as the greatest challenge to overcome. 

"I'm a very average athlete — average 
height, average weight, average speed, aver- 
age strength," said Brundige, senior in art 
education, who walked on the tennis team as a 
junior after not playing for two years. 

"I've never really had any advantages 
over my opponents except desire." 

At first, Brundige said she didn't 
care whether she won or lost. 

"I just kept saying to myself, 'You're 
playing tennis for a Division I school. 
That's huge!'" Brundige said. 

During her first couple of months on 
the team, Brundige said, her confidence was 
shattered, and she felt as if she couldn't 
win a single match. 

"A major turning point came when a good 
friend kept drilling into my head that I just had 
to believe in myself," Brundige said. 

Walking on to the tennis team was one of 
the best decisions Brundige ever made, she said. 

"Granted, it hasn't been easy at 
times, and it's definitely been the most 
humbling experience I've ever had," she said. 
"But I feel like it's been a very character- 
building experience."

Mott, fifth-year student in interior 
architecture, caught lacrosse fever during the 2- 
1/2 years she was manager for the men's team. 

"Some of my neighbors played men's 
lacrosse, " Mott said. 

Thus began the process of developing a 
women's lacrosse club. 

"Last year, when I was a senior, I 
didn't have a lot of energy to start women's 
lacrosse," Mott said. "Mary (Wuertz) came in 
as a freshman with a lot of energy." 

Needing at least 12 people to be a 
club sport, Mott and Wuertz, sophomore in 
engineering, recruited players. 

"We badgered every female we knew to 
see if she wanted to play lacrosse, " Mott said. 

While waiting to become a club sport, 
the team focused on learning the game. 

Mott said the same fever that had 
begun with her had spread to others. 

"I'm really excited for the team because 
I see excitement in the other players," Mott 
said. "Other people have the lacrosse bug."

level with 40,000-plus fans yelling his name. 

Ekeler thought his state championship 
Blair, Neb. , high school football team was 
the last team he would ever play on. 

But Ekeler decided to give it a shot. 
When he arrived at K-State as a walk-on, Ekeler 
was told there was no position for him. He went 
out to his car, but something, he said, made him 
go back into the football offices. 

Ekeler 's determination and work paid off. 

In 1994, Ekeler received the Paul 
Coffman Award for outstanding leadership, 
attitude and improvement. And in his final 
year, he was named the Cats' outstanding 
special teams player. 

Ekeler 's attitude on the field was not 
the only thing that got the fans' attention. He 
was also known for his on- and off-field antics. 

Ekeler 's pre-game rituals drew fans' 
attention. Besides painting his face black, 
Ekeler said, he liked to listen to comedian/ 
actor Bill Murray before games. 

"Bill Murray is my idol, and 'Caddy- 
shack' is my bible," Ekeler said. 

Despite the success and fun he had as 
a Wildcat, Ekeler said he worked on not 
dwelling on the past. 

"When I'm done, I'm done, and I'll 

just have a lot of fond memories and great 
experiences," he said.

in January by the NCAA athletic 
directors and administors.

tacy Metro was always reaching 

for higher plateaus . 

For Metro, assistant volleyball coach, 
striving for another level was a driving force. 

"I like to say always reach for the 
top, " Metro said. "That way, if you fall a 
bit, you will still be happy." 

Metro reached the top in January when 
she was named Athlete of the Year for Division II 
by NCAA athletic directors and administrators. 

From the start, the 6-foot-l-inch 
setter knew where she wanted to be. 

Metro began playing volleyball her 
sophomore year at Mayfair High School in Lake- 
wood, Calif. 

After a slow start, Metro played 
better and she decided to try playing at the 
collegiate level. 

Transferring from the University of 
Colorado to Northern Michigan after one sea- 
son, Metro became a three-time, first-team 
all-American and later went on to become the 
fourth player in NCAA history to win AVCA/ 
Tachikara Division II Player of the Year 
honors in 1992 and 1993. 

After Metro's graduation, Jim Moore, 
the Wildcats' new volleyball coach, offered a 
chance to coach. 

"I wanted to build something here and 
get it great because I like building things 
and starting from ground zero and going up 
and saying 'We did this.'"

Illiot Hatcher knew the meaning 
of the word adversity. 

After being the sixth-leading scorer in 
Indianapolis high school history, Hatcher, K- 
State's 6-foot junior point guard, attended San 
Diego Junior College. 

After walking on the team, Hatcher had a 
strong freshman year and received a scholarship. 

But, while playing a pick-up game, 
Hatcher sustained a serious injury to his knee. 

Two surgeries later, Hatcher's career 
looked to be over, but he refused to give up. 

"I was determined to play again, no 
matter what anybody else said. I did a lot of 
rehabbing on my own, and it slowly started to 
pay off," he said. 

Hatche'r transferred to Grayson County 
Community College in Texas where he averaged 
19.8 points per game his sophomore year, and 
offers from Division I schools began rolling in. 

He chose K-State for several reasons. 

"Manhattan doesn't have the city life 
that I'm used to," Hatcher said. "But it was 
the closest to my mother in Indianapolis. The 
people are pretty nice here, too." 

Hatcher made his mark as he averaged 15 
points per game to lead the Cats in scoring. 

But he said it didn't matter whether 
he was remembered for his basketball skills. 

"How people remember me just isn't re- 
ally that important," he said. "As long as I know 
that I've been a good person, I'll be happy."

With a young team, new leaders stepped up to help 
the women's team pull together for 1 I 



lthough the women's bas- 
ketball team lacked experienced 
players, members found the right 
chemistry to produce an overall 
winning record. 

"We have really good chem- 
istry right now," Brian Agler, 
women's basketball coach, said. 
"We're improving." 

The Cats began the season with 
four players who had starting ex- 
perience. Even with that kind of 
leadership, the team was still 
young, Agler said. 

"I see our total program mak- 
ing some strides," Agler said. 
"We're playing a lot of young 
people — we 're starting two fresh- 
men and two sophomores. Be- 
cause of that youth, you're going 
to see improvements." 

One starter was freshman wing 
Brit Jacobson, who stepped for- 
ward to help the team come to- 
gether, Agler said. 

"Brit gives us somebody who's 
athletic and has the potential to 
score about any time," he said. 
"She's made some big plays on 
both offense and defense." 

Returning were two seniors 
— post Shanele Stires and wing 
Shawnda DeCamp, who com- 
bined for more than 55 percent of 
the points in 1993-94. 

But the team lost DeCamp, 
the 1 994 Big Eight Newcomer of 
the Year, when she quit Jan. 26 
for personal reasons. 

Agler said losing DeCamp did 
not set the team back. 

"Obviously she was a talented 
player, but sometimes the most 
important thing is chemistry," 
Agler said. "I feel like as a team, 
we're executing, and we are play- 

by Chris Kallenbach 

ing better defense and playing to- 
gether a lot better than we were 

Without DeCamp, the leader- 
ship role fell to Stires. 

"We relied 
on Shanele in 
every aspect, 
from scoring to 
Jacobson said. 
"We looked up 
to her because 
she was the 
only senior on 
the team." 

Stires' lead- 
ership helped 
the team get 
through a 
tough early sea- 
son and then 
pull together as 
a team toward 
the end. 

Early in the 
season, the Cats 
traveled to 
D.C., for the 
George Wash- 
ington Univer- 
sity Invitational 
Dec. 9-10. 

Going into 
the tournament, 

the Cats had a 4-1 record. It was the 
best start for the team since the 
1983-84 season. 

At the invitational, the Cats 
lost 60-55 to Arkansas State in the 
first round. The team rebounded 
from the loss to beat the District of 
Columbia/George Washington 
83-46 in the second round.

At 7-4, the team moved into 
Big Eight Conference play. 

After wins against Nebraska 
and Iowa State, the Cats went 
on a five-game losing streak, 
which included losses to ranked 
teams such as the University of 

In Lawrence Jan. 15, fouls hurt 
the Cats early, and the No. 14- 
ranked Jayhawks won 72-63. 

The losing streak ended when 
the Cats beat Nebraska and Iowa 
State again, but this time both games 
were in Bramlage Coliseum. 

After the wins, the Cats faced 
No. 15-rankedKUFeb. 12. 

Stires controlled the game by 
scoring 31 points in leading the 
team to an 80-73 win. 

The victory broke the Cats' 
seven-game losing streak to KU. 

"The KU game was a high- 
light," sophomore wing Missy 
Decker said. "We played well to- 
gether and ended some of those 
streaks against them." 

The Cats then faced road games 
against OU Feb. 17 and OSU 
Feb. 19. The Cats lost to OU 60- 
71, but defeated OSU 57-56. 

The OSU game marked the 
first time since 1985 that the Cats 
had won in Stillwater. 

The last game of the season was 


against Colorado, the No. 3 team 
in the country. 

The Cats played the Buffaloes 
close to the buzzer, when Stires had 
a last-second three-point attempt. 
The shot went in and out, and the 
Cats lost the game 74-77. 

"The Colorado game was a 
disappointment, and some of the 
other games we 

could have 
won," Stires 
said. "We have 
a young team, 
and those 
games, hope- 
fully, will help 
in the future." 

K - S t a t e 
players were 
recognized in 
the conference 
for their efforts 
throughout the season. 

Stires was named to the first 
team all-Big Eight, and Jacobson 
was given honorable mention. 

The team ended 14-12 overall 
and 6-8 in the conference. 

The players worked throughout 
the season to be competitive in the 
conference, Stires said. 

"We had pressure to live up to 
the history of the program," she 
said. "The program has a good 
tradition, and we look at that."

hanele Stires dealt with pressure and stress by keeping things in 

As the only senior on the women's basketball team, Stires, senior in 
social science, spent her final season as the team's primary leader. 

"It's tough to deal with everything at times, like when you have a 
coach hanging over your head or something like that, " Stires said. "You 
just have to keep it in perspective." 

Stires said she didn't shy away from the pressure of leadership. 

"A lot of responsibility has been placed upon me 
■ j- .1.1. I to lead and be composed," she said. "I think I feel the 

A lot Of responsibility haS pressure, but I don't fold up under it. 

"I thrive in pressure situations. In a more laid- 

been placed upon me to lead back situation, i have less impact." 

The highlight of Stires' season was the victory 
over the University of Kansas, a game she said put a 
lot of pressure on her. 

"We broke a seven-game losing streak to them 
and a five-game streak since I've been here myself," 
she said. "Not only were they KU, but they were a 
nationally ranked team." 

Stires said she didn't take the efforts of her team 
members for granted. 

"When I came here, the program was in a terrible 
state of disarray and disorder," Stires said. "After all 
the hard work, the team still deserves more than what they got." 

An important part of being a leader was helping boost team morale, 
she said. 

"Times get tough, and sometimes we think everything is so bad," 
she said. "We don't realize how lucky we are to have our school paid 
for by playing basketball. I try to remind everybody that things aren't 
as bad as they may seem." 

Stires said she also reminded herself how fortunate she was for being 
able to play college basketball. 

"Since I'm on my way out, it is sentimental to me to cherish these 
last moments," she said. "I've been very fortunate to be able to play 
Division I basketball. It had always been a dream of mine."

Led by a new coach, the men's basketball team 
began their season with a 


new era was dawning for 
the men's basketball team. 

After struggling through six un- 
successful seasons, the Wildcats 
were led by Coach Tom Asbury. 

Asbury came with an impres- 
sive record from 15 years at 
Pepperdine, in Malibu, Calif. 
Three NCAA Tournament ap- 
pearances and a 125-59 overall 
record in the West Coast Confer- 
ence gave him the fourth-highest 
winning percentage, .786, in the 
history of the conference. 

"An off-year would be sec- 
ond," he said of the Waves' suc- 
cess. "Last year, we were second 
and got to the NCAA Tourna- 
ment and almost beat Michigan. 
That's a bad year." 

Asbury faced new challenges at 
K-State. With graduation taking 
four of the team's top players, he 
began working with seven return- 
ing players and five recruits. 

Senior forward Belvis Noland 
and senior guard Demond Davis 
took leadership roles. Junior 
Tyrone Davis, who filled in the 
center position left vacant by Deryl 
Cunningham, led the team late in 
the season in scoring against some 
of the toughest competitors. 

Besides the senior leaders, fresh- 
man guard/forward Mark Young 
started 14 consecutive games. Jun- 
ior guard Elliot Hatcher and Tyrone 
Davis also made important contri- 
butions to the team throughout 
the season, Asbury said. 

"Tyrone is just getting better 
and better. He is gaining more 
confidence, and he knows he can 
score," Asbury said. "The better 
he gets, the more confidence the 
guys have to get it (the ball) down 

by R.J. Diepenbrock 

to him." 

Leadership on the court fell into 
the hands of Hatcher, who led the 
Cats in scoring and rebounding in at 
least six games during the season. 

The Cats, who were picked to 
finish seventh 
in the Big Eight 
began the sea- 
son with their 
first-ever pre- 
season National 
But the first 
game was 

against No. 18 
Alabama Nov. 
16 in Birming- 
ham, and the 
Cats lost the 
opener 79-48. 

Against Illi- 
nois Dec. 5, the 
Cats fell behind 
early, but came 
back and were 
down by only 
nine at half- 
time. But, in 
the end, the 
team was handed its second loss of 
the season, 76-69. 

"Initially, we played pretty 
hard," Asbury said. "Their last 
shot almost went in, but after that, 
we felt a lot better in overtime. 
The Lord gave us an extra five 
minutes to get it done." 

As the season continued, so did 
the team's inconsistency. 

At the Capital City Classic holi- 
day tournament Dec. 22-23 in 
Tallahassee, Fla., the Cats defeated

(Continued from page 311) 
Tennessee State 71-58 in the first 
round and moved on to face Au- 
burn in the championship game. 
Hatcher had 32 points to lead all 
scorers in the 78-75 victory. 

But even with a championship 
under their belts, the Cats were 
still young and inexperienced. In 
the Big Eight home opener against 
Oklahoma State Jan. 7, the unex- 
pected happened. The Cats con- 
trolled the game from start to fin- 
ish even though senior center 
Bryant Reeves, OSU's tallest 
player at 7 feet, scored 23 points 
and pulled down 16 rebounds. 

The Cats were led by Hatcher, 
who scored 23 points, and Noland, 
who had 21, to a 74-66 victory. 

"We came back to play after 
Tuesday's game (a loss to Wichita 
State)," Asbury said. "We knew 
that Bryant Reeves is very diffi- 
cult to defend, and we knew that 
Randy Rutherford was a great 
shooter. We were active and alert, 
we got loose balls, and we really 
wanted to play." 

Junior center George Hill said 
the key to stopping Reeves, also 
known as Big Country, was not 
letting him get the ball. 


"I just had to hold my own. Big 
Country's going to get his," Hill 
said. "You just have to stop him 
from getting it all the time and 
having a great, great night. To- 
night, he had an average night." 

Lack of experience and poise 
continued to plague the Cats in the 
Jan. 21 game against Iowa State. 

"The major difference in that 
game was experience," Asbury 
said. "They made the big plays 
when they had to, and we didn't. 
The experience was a factor in 
that game, and it showed through. 

The Cats lost the game 79-73 
in Manhattan. 

Bouncing back from a four- 
game losing streak, the Cats upset 
No. 25 Oklahoma 87-77 Jan. 25 
in Bramlage Coliseum. 

Tyrone Davis led all scorers 
with a career-high 26 points against 
OU. He was 10-12 from the free- 
throw line and had six rebounds. 

"This win helps out a lot," he 
said. "It helps us get our frustrations 
out and helps our confidence." 

On the road against Colorado 
Feb. 11, Demond Davis suffered 
an ankle injury, and the Cats lost 
82-68. The injury kept him from

"We didn't score," Asbury said. 
"We had to get the lid off the 
basket. We had pretty good shots." 

In the second-to-last game of 
the season, the Cats faced Ne-

With a six-game losing streak, 
the team knew a win would be 

The battle began with Noland 
scoring the team's first 13 points, 
giving the Cats a 13-10 lead. Ne- 
braska came back and led at half- 
time 37-34, even though Noland 
had 20 points. 

The second half was a different 
story. Noland continued his hot 
shooting, finishing with a career- 
high 31 points, but received help 
from Hatcher and Davis. 

"When Noland's played well, 
we've played well," Asbury said. 
"It's nice to win." 

Noland said it was just one of 
those nights. 

"I just had one of those games 
where everything went down for 
me," he said. "I came out and 
played hard." 

The Cats finished the season 
against Colorado March 4 at home. 

The game was close in the 
first half, but Colorado came back 
in the second half to beat the 
Cats 51-70. 

With the loss, the Cats dropped 
to 3-11 in the Big Eightand 12-14 

Asbury said the game was a bad 
end to the season. 

"I wasn't upset about the way 
we played," he said. "I was upset 
that we went out the way we did 
at our last home game."

era of competitiveness 
in the making for the 

cats and 


by r.i. diepenbrock M 

.Z'S.-- -'r?'.-' 

en's basketball coach Tom Asbury brought his brand of competitive 
coaching from the California coast to the Kansas plains. 

"(I'm a) very competitive person. I always had to be around a certain 
competitiveness in my life," Asbury said. "When I was finished playing, 
my only way to be able to continue that competitiveness would be in 
athletics, and the easiest way to do so was in coaching." 

Asbury played basketball at the University of Wyoming. 

"That's what led me into coaching. I have to be around competi- 
tion," he said. 

Asbury came to K-State after spending 15 years at Pepperdine, in 
Malibu, Calif., where he compiled four 20-win seasons, the fourth- 
highest winning percentage in the history of the West Coast Confer- 
ence, and three NCAA Tournament appearances. 

Despitehis success, Asbury decided tofurther his - | g ^ b^j^ly 

coaching career by accepting the job at K-State. / \J / 

"By the same token, you're only going to be able . , . . . 

to get so far at a school like Pepperdine with the f ° 9 et OUI " feCim int ° POStSeQSOn 
resources and facilities and conference affiliation and 
things like that," he said. "You need to be in one of 
the super conferences or you're not going to be 
playing at the highest level." 

And, for Asbury, the Big Eight Conference was 
just the place. 

"I've always liked the Big Eight. They have some 
of the best facilities, and the best interests and the best 
coaches in the country." 

Asbury said becoming a Big Eight coach didn't 
change his goals. 

"My goals are basically to get our team into 
postseason play every year," he said. "We're building a new program 
here. We're pretty much starting a brand-new era." 

Trying to rebuild a program meant seeking the right people, he said. 

"I just want to build a good, sound, solid basketball program where 
players graduate, and they go to class, and they take care of business, and 
where we've got really good teams — and we win. And with that comes 
growing pains. 

"But we'll build a sound, solid program," he said. "We'll make 
Kansas State proud of the basketball program."

ing a new program here. 
We're pretty much starting a 
brand-new era.

Despite injuries, the indoor track team 
worked to stay on the 


njuries to leaders gave other 
indoor track team members a 
chance to sprint into the spotlight. 
With two top competitors out 
because of injuries, other track 
team members had the opportu- 
nity to prove themselves. 

"Injuries are just a part of sports, 
and they are definitely a part of 
track and field. In track, if you're 
not 100 percent, you almost can't 
do it," Coach Cliff Rovelto said. 
"A sprinter at 80 percent is not 
only not going to win, they're 
going to be embarrassed." 

Women's indoor track co-cap- 
tain and returning Big Eight cham- 
pion Jeanene Rugan, senior dis- 
tance runner; Itai Margalit, junior 
high jumper; and Dante McGrew, 
senior all- American triple jumper, 
all suffered injuries that inhibited 
their competition. 

Rugan was unable to partici- 
pate in indoor competition be- 
cause she ripped a leg muscle at the 
end of the cross-country season. 

Samantha McNamara, sopho- 
more distance runner, said she 
thought Rugan's absence hurt the 
team because Rugan was a strong 
runner and team leader. 

McNamara said despite the loss 
of Rugan, the team did well and 
turned in many personal bests. 

She said she improved her times 
in the mile and 1 ,000-meter run. 

Karissa Owens, sophomore 
sprinter, also said she worked all 
year to improve her times. 

"My toughest thing was boost- 
ing my confidence level," she said. 
"Once I got my confidence up, 
my times started going down." 

Owens qualified for the NCAA 
Indoor Championships in the 55- 
meter dash.

Rovelto said confidence was a 
natural result of training. 

"If you work hard, as you see 
yourself improving, you get more 
confidence," he said. "Anybody, 
no matter what 
you're doing, if 
you set your 
mind to it, you 
can go out and 
do it. 

"What hap- 
pens is most 
people need to 
see improve- 
ment before 
they become 
motivated. If 
they train hard, 
the rest takes 
care of itself."

"I got seventh in the 1,000-

1,000 meter are strategic races," 
she said. "When you pass, you 
have to do it early. I think I spent 
too much time in the fourth lane. 
I don't discredit the winners, 
though. There were some really 
good runners." 

Wells said she thought the in- 
door season was cumbersome be- 
cause team members competed 
almost every weekend following 
winter break. 

Owens said she tried to cope 
with the pressure of a long, com- 
petitive season by mentally review- 
ing her races and the number of 
meets in which she had competed. 

"I count down the weeks, and 
this helps me tough it out," she 

Wells said she thought injuries 
like Rugan's allowed other run- 
ners to take on leadership roles. 

"I think when people are in- 
jured, it's really difficult to feel 
like a part of the team, so I like to 
try to project a team atmosphere," 
Wells said. "Because she (Rugan) 
was injured, I think it put more 
pressure on some of the other 
runners. Sometimes it's hard to 
step up and be a leader." 

Injuries plagued the men's team 
as well. 

Margalit sat out of the triple 
jump during the Big Eight 
Championships because of an 




ankle injury. 

But sitting out proved to be a 
smart strategy, as he qualified in 
the high jump for the NCAA 
Indoor Championships March 10- 
1 1 in Indianapolis. 

Ed Broxterman, junior high 
jumper, also qualified for the In-

Palm Reader 

hands tell the tale 

by Nora Donaghy 

Page Getz, freshman in pre- 
journalism and mass communi- 
cations, reads the palm of Amy 
Sykes, sophomore in animal sci- 
ences and industry. "I thought, 
'This is going to be a weird ex- 
perience,'" Sykes said. "But a 
lot of them (Getz's interpreta- 
tions) were accurate." (Photo by 
Cary Conover) 

s incense wafted in the air, the 
palm reader studied the young 
woman's hand — its shapes, 
lines and textures — and told its 
tale of her past, present and future. 
"You've got a lot to do in this 
life," she told Amy Sykes, sopho- 
more in animal sciences and indus- 
try. "Who you were when you 
came here is completely different 
from who 
you'll be when 
you leave." 

For $2, Page 
Getz, freshman 
in pre-journal- 
ism and mass 
tions, offered 
palm readings 
from her room 
in Goodnow 

"You can 
learn from your 
palms," said 
Getz, who es- 
timated she had 
read more than 
100 palms in 
"I've only had 
one person ever 
tell me I'm off." 
Getz posted 
signs around 
campus and the 
advertising her 
palm readings 

for a price that undercut the stan- 
dard professional palm-reading 
charge of $15. 

"I'm in college, and I figure 
most people don't have much 
money," she said. 

Although she used her art to 
supplement the earnings from her 
part-time job at Kramer Dining 
Center, there was a time when 
Getz needed the money she earned 
from palm reading. 

After leaving her home and 

dropping out of high school at 16, 
Getz developed her palm-reading 
skills on the streets and in the parks 
of her home town, Wichita, as a 
way of earning extra cash. Strug- 
gling through an alcohol and drug 
addiction, Getz began attending 
Alcoholics Anonymous meetings 
and started her recovery. 

"It (AA) saved my life. I 
couldn't have kept living the way 
I was living," she said. "I spent a 
lot of my life feeling like a victim. 
(With AA), I felt like I had been 
relieved. The world wasn't out to 
get me. I had a lot more power 
over my life than I gave myself 
credit for." 

Her attitude wasn't the only 
thing that changed when she 
started attending AA meetings. 

"When I first got sober, almost 
overnight, my palm changed," she 
said. "It sounds crazy, but it's the 
most amazing thing." 

What amazed others was Getz's 
palm-reading abilities. 

"I was skeptical at first, but 
everything was completely right 
about my past. She didn't even 
know me," Jennifer Bray, junior 
in kinesiology, said. "Everything 
was totally on the money." 

Although psychic powers were 
not a part of palm reading, Getz said, 
her abilities were spiritually based. 

"Every once in a while, I'll get 
a palm, and I can read everything 
about that person," she said. "It's 
something beyond me, and that's 
when I can tell it's a real gift." 

Getz said she understood the 
positive effects of palm reading 
because she had once had a profes- 
sional palm reading. She believed 
she was given her palmistry ability 
to help in the healing process of 
her alcohol and drug addiction. 

"I felt such a sense of peace 
when she was reading my palm," 
Getz said. "If I can give that kind 
of peace to someone, then I think 
that's really cool."

Members of Clovia brought 
the children to their house to make 
the Christmas decorations. 

"They were really excited," 
Mary Jones, junior in elementary 
education, said. "When we ar- 
rived to pick them up, I think the 
boys thought only the girls got to 
go. The boys were excited about 
going because they had never made 
gingerbread houses before." 

Each child was supplied with 
one milk carton, a piece of card- 
board, frosting, graham crackers 
and a variety of candies. 

"They got into it as their cre- 
ative ideas began to flow," Lake 
said. "The girls also got into it." 

Annette Lewis, freshman in 
textiles, said the kids used pretzels 
and candy canes for fences and 

aluminum foil for ponds. 

"It lasted over an hour, and the 
kids kept their attention on the 
projects," Kate Nelson, junior in 
elementary education, said. 

Vicki Terrill, case worker for 
Big Brothers and Big Sisters, sup- 
ported the activity. She said the 
afternoon allowed Clovia mem- 
bers to reach out to the children. 

"Activities like this let them do 
things while they're waiting to be 
matched," Terrill said. "I thought 
it was great to show the kids that 
there are people who care about 
them and like them." 

Working with the children was 
also beneficial for Clovia mem- 
bers, Lewis said. 

"I did it to meet the younger 
kids in the community," she said.

independents, greeks share ford hall 

by Brooke Graber 

reeks and independents living 
in Ford Hall forged friend- 
ships and maintained indi- 

Traditionally, the hall was re- 
garded by students as a residence 
for sorority women. 

Shannon Hobbs, freshman in 
arts and sciences, said she chose to 
live in Ford because she had heard 
it was a sorority dorm. 

"I wanted to live here in order 
to meet other girls from other 
houses and to meet girls who were 
independent," Hobbs said. 

Ford was not the top choice for 
some women, however. 

"It was my third choice, but I 
enrolled later, so I think that's 
why I'm here," Stephanie Huser, 
freshman in animal sciences and 
industry, said. 

Some members said they 
couldn't tell the difference be- 
tween independents and greeks. 

"There's no difference between 
people who are independent and 
people who are in houses," Hobbs 
said. "Being in a sorority, there is 
a stereotype that you're supposed 
to fit. You're supposed to be thin 
and beautiful and stuff like that." 

Sarah Hearne, freshman in pre- 
journalism and mass communica- 
tions, said she was independent 
because she wanted to escape ste- 

"I am a very individual person, 
and I didn't want to be catego- 
rized," she said. "When people 
ask me where I live, and I tell them 
Ford Hall, their next question is 
not 'are you in a house,' but 'what 
house are you in.'" 

Huser, who was not in a soror- 
ity, said she thought the hall would 
be more soror- 
than it was. She 
said having so- 
rority women 
on her floor 
gave her a 
chance to meet 
more people. 

"There are 
girls in sorori- 
ties right across 
the hall from 
me," Huser 
said. "You get 
to meet a lot of 
people through 

their sorority connections — 
people you probably would not 
have met otherwise." 

"I wanted to live 
here in order to 
meet other girls from 
other houses and to 
meet girls who 
were independent."

residents talk openly about sex 

by Chris Dean 

t didn't take long to draw a 
crowd in Goodnow Hall Nov. 9. 

Posters throughout the hall pro- 
claiming, "There will be sex in the 
lobby of the second floor tonight 
at 8 o'clock" saw to that. 

The announcement was cer- 
tain to attract attention, although 
24 people debating whether a 
woman should ask a man for a date 
may not have been the sight par- 
ticipants expected. 

"Sex in the Lobby" was a pro- 
gram devised by Michael Barker 
of Humboldt State University in 
Areata, Calif, that came to K- 
State through Robyn Stone, 
Goodnow's New Student Coun- 
cil adviser and sophomore in ki- 
nesiology, after she attended the 
National Association of College 
and University Residence Halls 
conference in Flagstaff, Ariz. 

The purpose of the program 

was to open people's minds about 
sex and allow them to discuss it 
openly and honestly, Stone said. 

"I think it is a great program 
because it allows people to get 
together and discuss topics that 
they normally wouldn't talk about, " 
Rodney Baxter, junior in manu- 
facturing systems engineering, said. 

Goodnow's version of "Sex in 
the Lobby" began with groups 
writing slang terms for intercourse 
to help residents relax so they 
would talk openly about sex. 

Participants wrote questions 
they wanted to ask members of 
the opposite sex. When the ques- 
tions were collected, the men were 
placed on one side of the lobby 
with the women on the other. 
Stone asked them the questions. 

"I thought it was really good 
that we got to ask questions and 
receive honest answers about sex 

and relationships from girls who 
were neutral on the subject," 
Rinav Mehta, junior in civil engi- 
neering, said. 

The questions ranged from the 
personal to the explicit. 

"It was really interesting to find 
out what guys thought about cer- 
tain things, especially the things 
they normally wouldn't discuss 
around women," Jennifer Keeney, 
freshman in fisheries and wildlife 
biology, said. 

Stone said New Student Coun- 
cil planned to continue the pro- 
gram because it helped freshmen 
and transfer students bond in the 
residence-hall setting. 

"It helps them get to know 
each other and feel more comfort- 
able," Stone said. "We try to gear 
our programs toward something 
the whole hall and new students 
will enjoy."

Intensive-Study Floors 



floors provide quiet atmosphere 

by Ashley Schmidt 

o blaring music in the corri- 
dors. No loud conversations 
in the lobby. 

It could have been finals week. 
However, that's how it was most 
of the time on the intensive- 
study floors. 

"My freshman year, I got stuck 
between a person who liked coun- 
try and a person who liked rap, and 
they both had great stereos," said 
Matt Vanschenkhof, sixth-floor 
Marlatt Hall resident and senior in 
hotel and restaurant management. 
"I didn't want that to happen again 
— so, I moved up to this floor." 

Most residence halls designated 
their top floors as intensive-study 
floors. Residents signed contracts 
stating they would observe the 
rules and quiet hours for the lobby 
and hallways. 

"It's a respect thing. If we need 
quiet time and the neighbors are 
too loud, we just ask them to turn 
down the radio. They will since 
they signed the agreement," said 
Heather Miller, ninth-floor Ford 
Hall resident and freshman in busi- 
ness administration. 

Vanschenkhof agreed residents 
were cooperative about quiet hours. 

"Ifyou have to tell someone to 
be quiet, they're not going to be a 
jerk about it," Vanschenkhof said. 
"They realize where they're liv- 
ing, and there's going to be a point 
in time that they're going to ask 
you to turn something down." 

Heavy class loads, rigorous sched- 
ules or simply the need for a quiet 
atmosphere persuaded students to 
choose intensive-study floors. 

"I've always been a study-con- 
scious individual. I decided that I 
needed to get as much done as I 
could when I was here," said Tom 
Madison, sixth-floor Marlatt resi- 
dent and sophomore in mechani- 
cal engineering. 

"I didn't have as much free 
time this year because of work — 
so, I knew this would be the best 
place for me." 

Intensive-study floors also be- 
came home to students who didn't 
request the ar- 

told me, 'Oh, 
no. You're go- 
ing to be on the 
study floor.' 
They felt sorry 
for me," said 
Scott Boden, 
ninth- floor 
Haymaker Hall 
resident and 
freshman in me- 
chanical engi- 
neering. "Now, 
I like it because 
it's nice and 
quiet compared 
to the other 

J.R. Miller, 
ninth- floor 
Haymaker resi- 
dent and fresh- 
man in me- 
chanical engi- 
neering, also 
found advan- 
tages to living 
on an intensive- 
study floor. 

"I have a 
good friend 
who lives in a 
coed dorm, and 
they're always 
blasting their 
stereos," he 
said. "So, when 
I want to study, 
this is all right 
because I can probably get more 
done here." 

Regardless of the rules, noisy 
times weren't unheard of. 

"It does get pretty loud on 
weekends — so, you really don't 
realize it's a study floor," Boden 

"Still, there's not the music 
pounding through your wall." 

With his television on, Curtis 
Robertson, freshman in arts and 
sciences, studies for his first so- 
ciology test of the spring semes- 
ter in his room on the ninth floor 
of Haymaker Hall. Robertson 
said his study habits had im- 
proved by moving from another 
residence hall to the intensive- 
study floor of Haymaker. (Photo

haymaker policy increases safety 

by the Royal Purple staff 

aymaker Hall became the first 

residence hall to implement a 

24-hour locked-door policy, 

setting off a debate about safety 

versus convenience. 

The Department of Housing 
and Dining Services planned to 
lock all of the residence-hall doors, 
Paul English, sophomore in sec- 
ondary education, said. 

In mid-September, Haymaker's 
Hall Governing Board voted to 
lock the Haymaker doors imme- 
diately, which forced residents to 
use the Validine system to enter 
the front doors. 

"We were trying to look at 
putting this system in at all the 
dorms around the same time, but 
the Haymaker Hall Governing 
Board took the issue and ran with 
it," Shah Hasan, assistant director 

of housing, said. "I call it bold 
leadership on behalf of the HGB, 
and I support it 110 percent." 

Derek Dwyer, Association of 
Residence Halls representative and 
junior in mechanical engineering, 
said Haymaker's HGB took the 
initiative in starting the 24-hour 
lockdown to acclimate students 
before the year was over. 

Safety was a concern for 
Haymaker Hall, an all-male resi- 
dence hall. 

"Security has no gender," En- 
glish said. "There are still personal 
belongings that can be stolen, and 
we don't want people off the street 
thinking they have free reign and 
vandalize the property." 

Shane Antholz, freshman in 
fisheries and wildlife biology, said 
the policy was unfair because hall 

residents did not vote on it. 

Other residents said they found 
the lockdown inconvenient when 
moving into or out of the hall. 

"It was always easier to drive 
up to the back door and unload 
your clothes, run them to your 
room, and then go park," Mark 
Prestwood, freshman in arts and 
sciences, said. 

"I'd like to see them open it up 
during the day," Antholz said. 

Despite its inconveniences, 
Hasan stood by the lockdown. 

"When the other dorms see 
how much safer this policy is and 
they implement it into the dorms, 
we will have all the little problems 
figured out," Hasan said. 
"Haymaker is giving us the op- 
portunity to work these problems 
out right now."

marlatt threatens secession from ARH 

by the Royal Purple staff 

arlatt Hall's governing board 
threatened in October to se- 
cede from the Association of 
Residence Halls. 

After meeting with ARH, 
however, Marlatt decided in De- 
cember against secession. 

Discussions about secession 
started with a letter sent by Marlatt 
Hall's Governing Board to ARH. 

"We are trying to accomplish a 
better ARH," Scott Lamb, Marlatt 
resident and senior in geography, 
said. "ARH needs to be more 
attuned to students." 

The secession letter was meant 
to move ARH, the governing 
board for all 11 residence halls, 
into action, Lamb said. 

"We just don't feel like 
KSUARH cares about the west 
side of campus," said James Hall, 
chief justice of Marlatt HGB and 
senior in nuclear engineering. 

In its letter, the Marlatt HGB 
said information about ARH-spon- 
sored programs was not prompt, 
meetings took place in a media- 
conference atmosphere and ARH 
disregarded the fact that residence 
halls were losing a significant num- 

ber of residents each year. 

Marlatt HGB's letter suggested 
ways ARH could better serve resi- 
dents, such as creating a mission 
statement and policies to support 
the statement. 

A significant number of Marlatt 
residents, the letter said, did not 
find belonging to ARH beneficial 
to the hall. 

Members of ARH were upset 
by the way Marlatt communi- 
cated its concerns, Lin Bliss, ARH 
president and junior in pre-medi- 
cine and history, said. 

"To begin with, it didn't bring 
the best out in everyone, but even- 
tually it helped ARH's relationship 
with Marlatt," he said. "It took 
some growing pains to get there." 

In response to Marlatt's letter, 
the ARH executive board drafted 
its own letter. 

"We try to represent every resi- 
dent, but we can't make 3,400 
phone calls," Bliss said. 

In the letter, ARH outlined the 
benefits of membership for each 
residence hall, such as having a 
voice in the policy-making deci- 
sions, the opportunity to interact 

with other students and the shar- 
ing of information with campus 
and other halls. 

If Marlatt seceded, it would 
have lost access to ARH-spon- 
sored programs and the ability to 
participate in 

residence-hall "We jUSt don't feel 


competitions, \\\^ e KSUARH cares 

Bliss said. 

Beyond los- about the west side 

ing benefits, 

of campus." 

James Hall, 

chief justice of Marlatt HGB 

and senior in nuclear 

Bliss said, the 
Department of 
Housing and 
Dining Services 
did not allow a 
residence hall 
to secede. 

"They still own that building, 
and you still fall under those regu- 
lations," Bliss said. 

After hours of meetings spent 
on the matter of secession, the 
relationship between Marlatt and 
ARH improved, Bliss said. 

"I think it taught us the impor- 
tance of communication," he said. 
"There's never enough you can 
do, and we keep building on that."

residents observe unusual celebrations

elebrating the tradition of 
New Year's Eve was not 
enough for eighth-floor 
Moore Hall residents. 

Considering it discrimination 
to celebrate 

"Every last day of oni y the first 

month of the 

year, residents 

started their 

own tradition, 

called New 

Month's Eve.

Residents added a few more 
traditions besides counting down 

Moore Hall 
residents so- 
cialize Jan. 9 
during their 
Black Monday 
party. The 
event, which 
took place on 
the eighth 
floor, gave 
residents a 
chance to 
relax before 
spring semes- 
ter classes be- 
gan. Besides 
Black Monday, 
the residents 
also had cel- 
ebrations on 
the last day of 
every month.

the 10 seconds before midnight. 
Celebrators also listened to music 
by the rock group Kansas and 
indulged in the scorpion bowl. 

"The scorpion bowl is a bowl 
full of assorted beverages, what- 
ever I throw in, and everyone 
brings a straw," Roger McCauley, 
fifth-year student in architecture, 

Trevor Dennis, eighth-floor 
resident and sophomore in politi- 
cal science, said New Month's 
Eve was an ice-breaker that 
brought residents together. 

"It's really cool that people try 
to get together," Dennis said. "It 
seems hard to get everyone to- 
gether because we all do our own 

In addition to celebrating each 
new month, residents kicked off 
the spring semester by celebrating 
Black Monday. 

"Black Monday is the Monday 
before classes before the second 

semester," McWilliams said. "Ev- 
eryone moves back Sunday, and 
classes don't start until Wednes- 
day, so we have Tuesday to re- 

Residents weren't the only ones 
attending the event. 

"Black Monday was also the 
time when a lot of alumni re- 
turned to celebrate with us," 
McCauley said. 

Some residents said they 
thought the new traditions would 
die after the current residents 
moved out. 

McWilliams and McCauley 
said they would return and take 
over a residence-hall room in or- 
der to continue the traditions. 

Some residents, like Jason 
Springer, sophomore in fine arts, 
said they would not be sad to see 
the traditions die. 

"If it doesn't continue, that's 
good because that means it was 
ours and ours only."

smurthwaite continues prank tradition 

by the Royal Purple staff 

urthwaite House and Smith 
Scholarship House celebrated 
Halloween Oct. 29 with a 
grand costume ball, but a tradition 
of pranks between the houses pro- 
vided the tricks. 
"I really en- 
joy these func-

Wilson, junior 

houses have a great

"Our houses 
have a great tra-

Members of 
both houses had 
fun pulling 
pranks such as T.P.'ing, gift-wrap- 
ping doors and making prank calls. 
"They T.P.'d our sleeping 
dorms. They also unhinged the 
door of our director's office, 

tradition of doing 
things together." 

Charisse Wilson, 
junior in history 

wrapped it up and gave it to us as 
a Christmas present," Marvin 
Schlatter, Smith president and jun- 
ior in pre-law, said. "Of course, 
we have stolen their furniture and 
silverware before." 

But Smith residents weren't 
the only ones who had fun. 

"Once, we stole their front- 
porch swing," Emilie Lunsford, 
junior in music education, said. "I 
wanted to leave the chains hang- 
ing there, but it'd make too much 
noise, so we took the whole thing. 
We just loaded it up into a truck 
and took off." 

That wasn't Smurthwaite's only 
prank on Smith. 

"We stole their front sign that 
said 'Smith Scholarship House.' 
They had to write a song and sing 
it to us to get the sign back," 
Becky Bohne, sophomore in in- 
terior architecture, said. 

Smurthwaite residents also made 
dolls stuffed with newspaper, at- 
tached notes that read, "Can't wait 
to do Homecoming with you," 
and then taped them to trees in 
Smith's front lawn, Bohne said. 

One prank pulled by the 
women backfired. 

"We do serenade them some- 
times, but then they come out 
with Supersoakers at 4 in the 
morning," Bohne said. 

Through all the pranks, though, 
the two houses remained friendly. 

"We try not to get upset about 
things," Lunsford said. "Of course, 
there is a line you don't cross. We 
don't do anything to damage their 
house or cars." 

Wilson agreed. 

"I know sometimes the next 
day you'll apologize. Most people 
don't get upset, though," she said. 
"It's a good way to meet people."

FAST Track Floors 

program aids students 

by Debbie Pilant and Ashley Schmidt 

or students living on FAST 
Track floors in Ford, Good- 
now and Moore halls, being in 
class wasn't the only opportunity 
to interact with professors. 
FAST Track, which stood for 
First ye Ar Student Transition Track, 
was designed to help first-year stu- 
dents get involved on campus. 

"The purpose is to provide a 

transitional environment for new 

students at K- 

"The purpose is to State '" J° hn 

Danos, Good- 

provide a transi- now Hal1 dl - 

tional environment 

for new students at 


John Danos, 
Good now Hall director 

rector, said. 
"It's about try- 
ing to create 
contact with 
students to the 
University in 
both social and 
academic ac- 

Each FAST 
Track floor wing had a faculty 
sponsor, chosen by resident assis- 
tants, who participated in activi- 
ties with the residents and orga- 
nized programs for them on a 
regular basis. The faculty mem- 
bers also ate dinner with the resi- 
dents one night a week. 

"Research shows that greater 
faculty involvement in students' 
lives helps retain students as well as 
GPAs," Danos said. 

Kim Bruna, freshman in arts 
and sciences, said faculty involve- 
ment was helpful. 

"They bring up a lot of differ- 
ent points we never thought of, 
especially like with pre-enrollment 
and things like that," Bruna said. 
"They have presented programs 
on subjects like enrolling and be- 
ing undecided in college." 

Development of leadership 
skills was another focus of the 
FAST Track program. The pro- 
gram encouraged members to or- 
ganize programs for other resi- 
dents, Danos said. 

In promoting the development 
of leadership skills, residents and 
resident assistants took a personality 
test called the Student Develop- 
ment Task and Lifestyle Inventory. 

Bruna said the test helped her 
in choosing a course of study. 

"It let me know what majors 
were out there and how to use 
that knowledge," she said. 

Leadership was also developed 
through involvement in the New 
Student Council. 

Danos, lead adviser for the 
council, said members worked on 
educational activities and program- 
ming to promote wellness. 

Both resident assistants and resi- 
dents said close interaction was an 
advantage to living on the floor. 

"You get to meet people and 
see how they live and what their 
interests are," Ryan McFarlane, 
freshman in environmental de- 
sign, said. "It's been fun coming 
up with things to do." 

Students weren't the only ben- 
eficiaries of the program. 

Roger Trenary, economics in- 
structor, participated in the FAST 
Track program on the fourth floor 
of Goodnow Hall. He said the 
program gave him the chance to 
get to know some students better 
than he did in his large classes. 

Benefits of the program had a 
chance to reach more students and 
faculty in the future, Danos said. 
Expansion of the FAST Track 
program depended on how much 
interest was shown in the fall resi- 
dence-hall contracts, he said. 

Virginia Sylvester, arts and sci- 
ences instructor, worked with resi- 
dents on the fourth floor of 
Goodnow. She said the program 
could have a bright future. 

"I think it has a lot of poten- 
tial," Sylvester said. 

"I'm not sure we've tapped 
into it fully, but I know I'm get- 
ting an idea of what concerns 
freshmen really do have."

alpha chis aid domestic violence victims 

by Julie Kramer and Ashley Schmidt 

n a year when the media spot- 
light focused on domestic vio- 
lence, Alpha Chi Omega so- 
rority members decided to shed 
their own light on the subject. 

Working behind locked doors, 
picking up battered women and 
children from gas stations and an- 
swering calls from potential sui- 
cide victims were just a few of the 
responsibilities of Alpha Chis who 
volunteered at the Crisis Center. 

Alpha Chi's national philan- 
thropy was domestic violence. K- 
State's chapter supported the cause 
by working at the Crisis Center. 

Stephanie Laudemann, senior 
in elementary education, said the 
center was a shelter for battered 
and abused women and children. 
She spent one night a week at the 
center to assist people who arrived. 

"We help get them back on their 
feet," she said. "It's a place they can 
stay. I was there in case we had a 
new woman come in the middle of 
the night, and I would show her 
around. Also, I was a counselor, 
someone for the ladies to talk to." 

Laudemann became involved 
at the center by hearing about it 
from another Alpha Chi. 

"One of the seniors when I was 
a sophomore was doing an intern- 
ship at the Crisis Center," she said. 
"She was doing her social work, 
and she got me interested in the 
volunteer training." 

Through Laudemann, other 
Alpha Chis became interested in 
volunteering at the center. 

Lisa Meiergerd, junior in human 
development and family studies, 
volunteered at the center and said 
she dealt with interesting calls. 

"A lot of times it's women who 
want to leave their home, and 
they want someone to talk to. 
Sometimes they even have their 
children with them," Meiergerd 
said. "Usually they call from a 
public phone, like from a gas sta- 
tion, and we meet them some- 
where. We can't go to the house 
because the abuser might be there." 

Volunteering at the center wasn't 
the only work Alpha Chis did to 
benefit victims of domestic vio- 
lence. Gretchen Ricker, senior in 
elementary education, said they also 
raised money for the center. They 
donated earnings from Spring Fling, 
an Ultimate Frisbee tournament they 
sponsored with Alpha Tau Omega 
fraternity, to the center. 

Alpha Chi members wore purple 
and white ribbons in October for 
domestic violence awareness month, 
Packer said. White signified hope 
for a violence-free world, and purple 
represented those who had died 
from domestic violence. 

Each time a person asked what the 
ribbons meant, the wearer was sup- 
posed to take off the ribbons and give 
them to the person who asked, Meier- 

gerd said. For every one an Alpha Chi 
gave away, the member donated 
something to the center, she said. 

Stacey Hager, senior in agri- 
cultural journalism, said the 
women and children at the shelter 
needed many items because they 
often didn't take anything with 
them when they left their abusers. 

"They take their purse, and 
that's all they have," she said. 
"They're scared to turn back." 

Victims of 
domestic vio- 
lence often did 
not have much 
after they left 
abusive situa- 
tions, but the 
media's atten- 
tion to the issue 
gave them 
hope, Laude- 
mann said. 

"I don't think 
many people 
knew much 

about domestic violence until re- 
cently," she said. "Now with all the 
movies coming out and other things, 
it's hard not to know about it." 

Sorority members said they 
were fortunate to have the chance 
to help an issue of national impor- 
tance on a local level, Ricker said. 
"We don't realize how much we 
have until we have the opportunity 
to give to someone else," she said. 

"We don't realize 
how much we have

new-member program promotes equality 

by Sarah Kallenbach and Charity Woodson 

qual from day one. 
Alpha Delta Pi sorority of- 
fered new members the Al- 
pha Education Program, which 
operated on an equality basis. 

The program, the first of its 
kind in the nation, was a four- 
week course in ADPi history and 
tradition, which gave the mem- 
bers a chance to get to know the 
sorority they joined. 

"The short program got us in- 
volved in the house right away," 
Kate Tirrell, freshman in psychol- 
ogy, said. 

Part of the program changed 
the name for the new members. 

"We do not call new members 
'pledges' because the word pledge 
can sometimes have a bad stereo- 
type," Amy Vaughan, junior in 
marketing, said. 

Vaughan, alpha educator, said 

the new members were called "al- 
phas" until initiation, when they 
became "deltas." The members 
remained a delta until they either 
graduated or got married, and then 
they became "pis." 

"Alpha is the beginning of ev- 
erything, and Delta is the sign for 
change. Everyone goes through 
change in college and finds them- 
selves. Pi means infinity, and you're 
always an ADPi," she said. 

One advantage of the equal- 
ity was that new members were 
allowed to attend chapter meet- 
ings and vote from the begin- 
ning of the fall semester. This 
was important because in chap- 
ter meetings, the members made 
decisions about which fraterni- 
ties they would join with to or- 
ganize Homecoming and other 

"I like it because you have a say 
in what's going on," Missy Abott, 
freshman in business administra- 
tion, said. 

Another advantage of the pro- 
gram was using "diamond sisters" 
instead of mothers and daughters 
most sororities used. 

"We have sisters instead of 
moms and daughters because sis- 
ters signify a one-to-one relation- 
ship that offers support and under- 
standing," Vaughan said. 

That desire for equal treatment 
was the idea behind the new- 
member program, Julie Waters, 
vice president and senior in sec- 
ondary education, said. 

"The bottom line is that all of 
this — the diamond sisters and the 
shortened programs — stress that 
no one is better than anyone else," 
Waters said. "We're all equal."

AGRs continue ag tradition 

by Janet McPherson 

rotherhood wasn't the only 

bond that 51 Alpha Gamma 

Rho members shared. They 

also had a common interest in 


"We're the only social/profes- 
sional fraternity on campus," Paul 
Friedrichs, junior in agricultural 
economics, said. "Most fraternities 
are just together socially, but we're 
together professionally as well." 

Of the 64 AGRs, 51 members 
had majors in agriculture-related 
fields, a figure that reflected the 
requirement that 85 percent of fra- 
ternity members had to be agricul- 
ture majors. Most members were 
from rural backgrounds and were 
involved in their schools, churches 
and 4-H clubs, Friedrichs said. 

Members wanted to continue 
that involvement in rural issues 
throughout their college careers, 
he said. One way the fraternity 
stayed involved in college was 
through leadership. 

"I think we're known for that," 
Friedrichs said. "We're the most 
represented house in student gov- 
ernment by far." 

AGRs were in four of the six 
executive positions on the Col- 
lege of Agriculture Student Coun- 
cil, he said. 

Clayton Wheeler, Student Sen- 
ate chairman and senior in mar- 

keting, said AGR helped mem- 
bers develop leadership abilities. 

"When you come to K-State, 
our house welcomes you with open 
arms, and with strong support from 
our alumni and community mem- 
bers, house leadership is also a great 
role model," Wheeler said. 

"AGR has an unwritten motto 
that you should never let the books 
get in the way of your education. A 
lot of the things you learn are 
through people, organizations, ac- 
tivities, work experience and strong 
house involvement. This teaches 
you to work together and to branch 
out into leadership roles." 

Friedrichs described his broth- 
ers as motivated and enthusiastic. 

"Overall, we're a pretty upbeat 
house that's focused on doing the 
right thing," Friedrichs said. 

Doing the right thing included 
activities such as raising money for 
the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of 
Manhattan Inc. program with the 
Phi Kappa Alpha fraternity through 
Beach Bash, a day of greek compe- 
tition at Turtle Creek State Park. 
The event included sand volleyball 
and a Beauty and the Beast contest. 

Michael Doane, senior in 
agribusiness, said several mem- 
bers became big brothers to area 
youth because of their involve- 
ment in Beach Bash. 

Another way the fraternity was 
involved was through the little- 
sister program. The fraternity was 
one of the last fraternities to have a 
little-sister program, Friedrichs said. 

Little sisters, or RhoMates, were 
selected through

"They do as much for us as we do 
for them." 

Doane said the contacts he made 
with the RhoMates and other stu- 
dent leaders affiliated with his house 
would help him in the job market. 

"It's really important to come 
out of college with a network 
already established in the sector of 
agriculture," Doane said. "Being 
in this fraternity has made it easier."

AKL continues without a house 

by Amy Smith 

he Alpha Kappa Lambda fra- 
ternity struggled to maintain 
its unity even though the 
chapter no longer had a house on 

"We weren't able to maintain 
the house financially and were 
forced to rent it out. We hadn't 
been able to get the membership 
we needed to maintain financial 
support," said Dave Metzger, 
president of AKL and senior in 
mechanical engineering. 

The AKL house was rented to 
the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, 
which was in the process of pur- 
chasing the house. 

Although the 20 AKLs did not 
have a house, several lived to- 
gether in apartments or houses. 

"Once we were out of the 
house in '93-'94, we tried to se- 
cure living arrangements in Royal 
Towers to keep us together," 
Metzger said. "Now, seven of us 
live in a house — so, it's more like 
a fraternity house than just a group 
of apartments." 

Chapter attendance declined 
because meetings were at the 
Union instead of at a fraternity 
house, Metzger said. 

Because they didn't have a 
house, members worked hard to 
establish traditions that would 
make their fraternity stronger, 
Kent McColl, junior in secondary 
education, said. 

"We are working really hard to 
reorganize and promote brother- 
hood even if we don't all live 
together," he said. 

The main goal in reconstruct- 
ing the fraternity was to increase 
membership, Dan Zeller, senior 

in architecture, said. 

"The numbers have been down 
the last few years, and we need to 
get them up so we can move back 
into the house," Zeller said. 

Although the fraternity claimed 
the largest pledge class in K-State 
history in fall 1991, membership 
dwindled after the loss of their house. 

"When I pledged the house, it 
was the largest fraternity pledge 
class at K-State," Metzger said. 

Although the University 
banned hazing in 1957, Metzger 
said it occurred for years after. 

"I don't know when the Uni- 
versity formally banned hazing, but 
it has happened and probably still 
does today. Our fraternity decided 
not to haze with the pledge class of 
1990. Some members didn't want 
to give it up," Metzger said. 

Metzger said because some mem- 
bers thought hazing was a tradition 
that should be kept, they quit. 

"The hazing stopped, and so 
some members took the tradition 
with them and left," Metzger said. 
"The actives that wanted to keep 
the hazing tradition forced some 
of the pledges to de-pledge." 

Mike Pruente, sophomore in 
secondary education, said the loss 
of members due to hazing caused 
further problems for the fraternity. 

"Once numbers fell, effort fell," 
Pruente said. "It got harder to do 
things like functions with less 

One problem the fraternity had 
in recruiting new members was 
being unable to communicate its 
positive attributes, Metzger said. 

"I don't know if we're not 
competent at rush, because we 

have good brotherhood and good 
times," he said. "We're just not 
able to sell it like other houses." 

Metzger said the fraternity was 
receiving some outside help in 
order to reach its goals. 

"The national organization is 
coming in to take over rush efforts 
to get our numbers up," he said. 
"After that, it is up to them and the 
alumni to get us a new house." 

In order to 

increase mem- 
bership, the fra- 
ternity needed to 
focus on tradi- 
tions and unity, 
Metzger said. 

"We're not a 
cohesive frater- 
nity right now," 
Metzger said. 
"We're just a 
group of guys." 

Despite their 
lack of commu- 
nity, members 
said they were 
optimistic about 
the fraternity's future. 

"As long as we keep up with 
our traditions and maintain the 
unity we have, we should be able 
to improve our numbers and move 
back into a house," Pruente said. 

Zeller said although being with- 
out a house drove down member- 
ship, ultimately it would help the 
fraternity to improve. 

"The house is overcoming a 
lot of its problems, and everyone 
is optimistic about the next few 
years," he said. "We really needed 
this time to centralize and get our 
priorities straight." 

'The numbers 
have been down 
the last few years, 
and we need to get 
them back up so 
we can move back 
into the house."

wasn't really well known." 

To raise money for cystic fi- 
brosis, which can cause pancreatic 
problems and pulmonary disor- 
ders, the ATOs sponsored a min- 
iature-golf tournament. 

"We wanted to do something 
that anyone could play," Doug 
LaMunyon, ATO philanthropy 
chairman and sophomore in el- 
ementary education, said. "It was 
a good philanthropy because it 
appeals to not-so-athletic people." 

Fraternities and sororities com- 
peted in the ATO Open Oct. 12- 
13 at the Wildcat Creek Sports 
Center in Frank Anneberg Park. 
"We did a driving range," Hurlbutt 
said. "We were playing Nebraska 
that week, and we had a 
Cornhusker 100 yards out for 
people to hit." 

For the miniature-golf compe- 
tition, teams were divided into 

ndy Hansen and Wade Sissson 

brackets, and each team played a 
round of golf, LaMunyon said. 

Alpha Chi Omega sorority won 
the event and received press-box 
tickets to the Oklahoma State foot- 
ball game. 

"I think the girls really enjoyed 
the event, and we would defi- 
nitely do it again next year," 
Gretchen Ricker, Alpha Chi presi- 
dent and senior in elementary edu- 
cation, said. "We decided to par- 
ticipate in the tournament be- 
cause we wanted to support the 

LaMunyon said he was pleased 
with the outcome of the philan- 

"We raised about $1,500 for 
the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation,

said. "It was a good philanthropy 
because anyone can play minia- 
ture golf."

alpha xis drop in on bourbon street 

by Amy Smith 

neaking to New Orleans, La., 

during Labor Day weekend, 

19 senior members of Alpha 
Xi Delta found the surprise was 
on them. 

New Orleans offered sights not 
often found in Kansas. 

"You would be walking down 
the street, and guys would be 
dressed up in lace, suspenders and 
chains and leather — not the nor- 
mal dress," Christy Hayes, senior 
in accounting, said. 

Another unusual encounter oc- 
curred in a gay bar, Melissa Norris, 
senior in human development and 
family studies, said. 

"It was all guys," Norris said. 
"It took us a few minutes to realize 
what was going on until we no- 
ticed that guys were putting dollar 
bills in other guys' underwear. 

"We looked around and saw 
guys kissing each other. It sent a 
bunch of us into culture shock." 

The seniors got caught up in 
another strange occurrence, 
Sherry Anderson, senior in pre- 
health professions, said. 

"We got caught in the middle 
of a gay parade. They were march- 
ing in a group down the street, I 
guess to say they had the right to 
be there," Anderson said. 

"We didn't realize we were in 

the middle of it until someone 
said, 'Did you know you're in the 
middle of a gay parade?'" 

The trip cost each member only 
$200 for airfare and hotel expenses 
and an additional $200 in spend- 
ing money, Hayes said. 

The sneak had been planned 
since the previous spring, Jennifer 
Wagner, senior in elementary edu- 
cation, said. 

Although the trip was supposed 
to be a secret, it wasn't a surprise 
to many members of the house. 

"Originally when sneaks 
started, seniors went away, and it 
was a secret. We tried, but a lot of 
people knew," Norris said. "When 
you plan something this big for so 
long, it's hard to keep it a secret. 
Plus, a lot of other houses go at the 
same time." 

During their stay in New Or- 
leans, the Alpha Xis stayed in a 
hotel near the French Quarter. 

"It was quite a few blocks from 
Bourbon Street, but we walked 
just about everywhere," Joanna 
Wall, senior in management, said. 

"We went to thejimmy Buffett 
Margaritaville, and I'm a big 
Buffett fan, so that was reaDy neat. " 

Though the Alpha Xis found 
many of the sights they encoun- 
tered in New Orleans unusual, 

attending a Kansas City Chiefs 
game reminded them of home. 

"It was neat to go to a Chiefs 
game in New Orleans, especially 
since it was the season opener," 
Hayes said. 

The Alpha "You would be

chants and 
cheers led by

Anderson said. 
"We were 
blocking drives 
and traffic, so 
the cops had to 
break it up." 

The Alpha Xis managed to stay 
together as a group during most of 
their time in the Big Easy, Norris 

"We had a really great time 
because at school, we see each 
other," she said, "but we got to 
spend the entire time together 

up in lace, suspend- 
ers and chains and 

not thf 

normal dress."

Beta Sigma Psi 



uffering from a shrinking pledge 

class, Beta Sigma Psi members 

turned to a local pastor for help. 

Previously, the Beta Sigs contacted 

Kansas Lutheran churches to request 

names of high-school seniors, which 

were then mailed to them. 

The system netted only 10 
pledges in the fall, saidjosh Wolters, 
rush chairman andjunior in agricul- 
tural engineering. 

With the help of Pastor James 
Gau from St. Luke's Lutheran 
Church in Manhattan, the frater- 
nity worked on a plan to present 

to the Kansas Senate. The plan 
asked the Senate to send the fra- 
ternity a list compiled by the 
Lutheran churches of all high- 
school seniors. 

"The Lutheran churches re- 
port to a national database — all 
the senior names would be in 
there," Wolters said. "We could 
get their names without going 
through the churches. It'll help 
quite a lot, make things easier." 

If the new system were imple- 
mented, pledge numbers would 
increase, Wolters said. 

by the Royal Purple staff 

"We can get 20 pledges a year," 
he said. "We need that to be a 
healthier fraternity." 

To be an active member in the 
house, the members had to go 
through the process of being con- 
firmed Lutheran. 

"They still have to be con- 
firmed before they can go active," 
Dan Reith, senior in chemistry, 
said. "They go to the pastor, and 
it only takes about a month or two 
to go through instruction — so, 
it's not too strenuous of an or-

beta theta pi ranks high in tradition 

by the Royal Purple staff 

"Intramurals bring 
the house together. 
It's something every- 
one can enjoy." 

Bernie Haney, 

intramural chairman and 

sophomore in journalism and 

mass communications 

he Beta Theta Pi fraternity 
continued their tradition of aca- 
demic and athletic excellence. 
Maintaining at least a 3.032 
grade-point average since 1990, 
the Betas con- 
tinued to rank 
in the top 25 
percent of fra- 
ternity grade- 
point averages. 
Scott Bing- 
ham, Beta presi- 
dent, rush chair- 
man and senior 
in landscape ar- 
chitecture, at- 
tributed that 
success to atmo- 
sphere and attitude. 

"The pledges look for a place 
where they feel at home, where 
they are accepted in a new envi- 
ronment — a place where they 
will be assisted while they are in 
college," Bingham said. 

To ensure the fraternity re- 
mained in the top quarter, the 

Betas required all members to com- 
plete study hours during the week, 
Jason George, scholarship chair- 
man and sophomore in chemical 
engineering, said. 

The house enforced quiet hours 
6-10 p.m., Sunday through Thurs- 
day, so members could concen- 
trate on homework. 

Members stressed scholarships 
and education to incoming fresh- 
men, George said. Because of those 
measures, the Beta freshman class 
consistently ranked in the top four 
academically among fraternity 
pledge classes. 

Another step taken to give the 
fraternity a better learning envi- 
ronment was making it a closed 
house, Bingham said. 

This meant that during the 
school week, women could only 
be in the lobby or the TV rooms 
and not on the second or third 
floors. The Betas had open house 
from noon Saturday to noon Sun- 
day, George said. 

When the Betas weren't study- 

ing, they often participated in ath- 
letic competitions. 

In the all-University Champi- 
onships, Kyle Kugler, graduate stu- 
dent in psychology, won thei 
pingpong tournament for the third 
consecutive year. 

In the bowling competition, 
Bernie Haney, intramural chair- 
man and sophomore injournalism 
and mass communications, claimed 
his second win. 

The fraternity had won the I 
intramural title 29 out of the past j 
39 years. 

"(Intramurals) brings out com- 
petition and teamwork," Haney 
said. "It's something everyone can 
enjoy. It's a battle because every- 
one is after the intramural title." 

Bingham said intramural com- 
petition did more than just 
strengthen brotherhood. 

"Intramurals bring the house 
together," he said. 

"It's a unified effort that in- 
spires a lot of guys and motivates 
them to do good things in school."

Chi O's and ATOs win homecoming 

by Ashley Schmidt 

eing neighbors paid off for 
Alpha Tau Omega and Chi 
Omega as they paired up for 
Homecoming week. 

Together, the Chi O's and 
ATOs won the greek Homecom- 
ing competition, taking first place 
in the float and bodybuilding com- 

"We did Homecoming with 
the ATOs because all we've heard 
for the past four years was how fun 
they are," Mindy Carter, senior in 
journalism and mass communica- 
tions, said. "They put 100 percent 
into Homecoming." 

The location of the houses 
turned out to be an important 
advantage for the Chi O's because 
they didn't have to drive to the 
ATO house. 

"It was good to have their house 
so near, especially with drinking 
and driving," Kristen Laughlin, 
Chi O president and junior in 
special education, said. "We didn't 
have to worry about it, and it 

wasn't even an issue because the 
girls could just walk back to our 

Another advantage was that 
getting members to attend prac- 
tices and required events during 
the week didn't seem like a hassle, 
Laughlin said. 

"It started out with people 
dreading it and being more con- 
cerned about school than Home- 
coming," she said. "But we really 
didn't have a problem because of 
the convenience of the ATOs 
being so near." 

Before Homecoming week 
even started, members from the 
two houses were already getting 
to know each other. 

"They (ATOs) got everyone 
pumped up," Laughlin said. "They 
came over and did a skit for us the 
week before Homecoming where 
they danced and sang to a song. 
We all saw that, and that really 
helped get us excited." 

Even though the Chi O's won 

the Homecoming events, they 
were surprised at the overall re- 

"The night before everything 
was announced, everyone was try- 
ing to figure out 

the points," "It makes you feel

senior in human good about yOUT 


house when you 
perform well." 

Cindy Davis, 

sophomore in business 


and family stud- 
ies, said. "After 
it was all over, 
all of us were 
really excited." 

The satisfac- 
tion of winning 
wasn't the only 

benefit the Chi O's got out of 
their Homecoming experiences. 

"It makes you feel good about 
your house when you perform 
well," Cindy Davis, sophomore 
in business administration, said. 
"Also, Homecoming is a good 
way to get to know other people 
in the greek system."

delta chis celebrate charter 

by Debbie Gill 

fter two years on the K-State 
campus, the Delta Chi frater- 
nity colony officially became 
a chapter Nov. 29. 

"It took a lot of hard work 
from all the members to make this 
chartering a reality," Kris Dekker, 
Delta Chi president and junior in 
mechanical engineering, said. 

The men of Delta Chi cel- 
ebrated the occasion with a formal 
banquet and dance at the 

Delta Chi was first chartered 
on the K-State campus in 1964 
and was recolonized in October 
1992 after a 14-year absence. 

Delta Chi alumni wanted to 
restart the K-State chapter be- 
cause there was already an alumni 
base, which could help ensure a 
successful fraternity, Paul 
Reigelsberger, senior in human 
development and family studies, 

Jim Demaree, chartering chair- 
man and senior in speech, said the 
process to become an official chap- 

ter was not an easy one. 

"We had to put together a 
250-page report describing our 
colony's structure, accomplish- 
ments, bylaws, alumni board and 
plans for the future. The report 
was then submitted to our na- 
tional executive board for review," 
Demaree said. 

After deciding the colony met 
all the criteria for becoming a 
chapter, the executive board 
granted the charter at the Delta 
Chi national convention in At- 
lanta during the summer. 

Although it was the newest 
traditional fraternity on campus, it 
had more than 100 members. 

Reigelsberger attributed the 
number of members to the fact 
that the fraternity stressed diver- 
sity and tried to break free from 

"I know a lot of us thought we 
would never be greek oriented," 
he said. "A lot of upperclassmen 
look for something not quite so 

One of the fraternity's goals 
was to purchase land and build a 

Having a house was important 
for a strong chapter, Reigelsberger 

"We'd like a 
house in order 
to create some 
stability," he 
said. "I know

material stabil- 

men saw long- 
term benefits to

"It was a lot of work, but worth 
it. As a founding father, I feel 
respected and a part of history," 
Demaree said. "In 15 years, I want 
to come back to K-State and have 
everyone ask what it was like to 
begin the chapter." 

"It took a lot of 
hard work from all 
the members to 
make this chartering 
a reality."

tri-delts overcome obstacles 

ailing backward offa platform 
and walking on tightropes 

helped Delta Delta Delta so- 
rority pledges learn to rely upon 
each other among the obstacles of 
Adam's Challenge Course. 

For their pledge sneak, Tri- 
Delt pledges braved the challenge 
course, which was affiliated with 
the University of Kansas campus. 
Split into small groups, the women 
spent a day in Lawrence visiting 
the course's various stations. 
Groups could not advance to the 
next obstacle until the current one 
was successfully completed. 

The purpose of the pledge sneak 
was to help make the new mem- 
bers more comfortable with each 

"I thought we really got to 
know one another," Kara 
Ungeheuer, freshman in pre- 
health professions, said. 

"I'd never heard of the chal- 
lenge course before, but we all 
had a great time, and I think it 
would be fun to go back and do 
it again." 

The Tri-Delts were the first 

sorority from K-State to visit 
Adam's Challenge Course. 

"It was something different that 
none of the other houses had done 
before," Molly Ingemanson, fresh- 
man in biology, said. 

"It was neat to be the first 
house to go there, and everybody 
wanted to hear about it when we 
got back." 

The Trust Fall, a station in 
which one person fell backward 
off a five-foot high stand to be 
caught by the group, was one of 
the pledge class's favorite obstacles. 

"I had never done the Trust 
Fall in the past, but after being 
through all the obstacles with the 
girls, I felt comfortable that they 
would be there to catch me," 
Cherish Starr, freshman in busi- 
ness administration, said. 

"It was neat how we could 
totally begin to trust each other by 
the end of the day." 

Ungeheuer said she found the 
Wishbone the most exciting ob- 

"We had to walk on separate 
tightropes holding onto our part- 

by Ashley Schmidt 

ner while the ropes got further 
and further away," she said. "We 
really had to rely on each other. 
We all had to work together, and 
we just kept trying because we 
wanted to make 
it to the end of 
the tightropes." 

Tour guides 
led the group 
through the 
course and pre- 
sented lessons at 
the end of each 

"Our guide 
asked us how 
each situation 
would relate to 
the house and 
how we could 

make the team work to get through 
the obstacle work in the house, 
too," Carey Usher, freshman in 
pre-journalism and mass commu- 
nications, said. "It made you real- 
ize how much you had to trust 
someone in order to make things 
work together."

ystery, mayhem, murder and 


the March of Dimes inspired 

Delta Sigma Phi fraternity to 

sponsor Haunted Hospital Oct. 

27-31 at the former Kite's Bar & 

Grille in Aggieville. 

The event, in its first year, en- 
tertained about 5,000 people of all 
ages and raised $4,000 for the 
March of Dimes, which was 
founded in 1938. 

"We wanted to stay away from 
all of the traditional things like a 
vampire and Frankenstein because 
people are used to all of that," 
Michael Potts, sophomore in ar- 
chitecture, said. 

"The thing that we were trying 
to keep in mind when we were 
planning this was how could we 
involve the customers in the 
house," Potts said. "Instead of 
having them walk by something 
scary, let's have them be a part of 
the scenario." 

About 80 businesses donated 
cash or materials to the Haunted 
Hospital, Potts said. 

Glen Riffel, owner of the va- 
cant property Kite's formerly oc- 

cupied, allowed the fraternity to 
use the property for the Haunted 

Members originally wanted to 
have the event at their fraternity 
house because legend had it that 
the house was haunted. 

"The chapter house, when it 
was originally built in 1904, was a 
YMCA for 50 years, and then it 
was St. Mary's Hospital," Potts 

"When Delta Sigma Phi bought 
the building a few years later, the 
hospital was moving, the patients 
out, and one of the patients fell 
out ofbed and died," he said. "His 
body wasn't found until the next 

Potts said there had been re- 
ports in the late 1950s and early 
1960s of fraternity members see- 
ing the ghost of the man walking 
around the house in search of his 
lost bed. 

Another rumor was that the 
house was haunted by the ghost of 
a dead nurse who either fell down 
an open elevator shaft or was 
crushed by the elevator on the

from having the event at their

"It took us 
close to 1,000 

man hours to pull it off with guys

two weeks," Chris Henry, senior 
in biological and agricultural en- 
gineering, said. "But in the end, it

Chris Carter, 

freshman in sociology 

students who 
had died or 
were missing in 
action in Viet- 
nam. Of those 
42, one was 
Steve W. Train, 
a Delt brother 
and K-State 
graduate who 
died in Viet- 
nam on April 2, 

The pledge class cleaned the 
memorial Nov. 10, the day before 
Veterans Day, to raise awareness 

about Train and other veterans 
who died defending their country. 

"It's become kind of a philan- 
thropy for us," Jamey Johnston, 
Delt president and junior in man- 
agement, said. "It took us about an 
hour, and they (the pledges) learned 
respect and gratitude for the sol- 
diers who served our country." 

This was the third year for a 
pledge class to clean the memo- 
rial, Johnston said. Members said 
the project helped increase aware- 
ness about the memorial. 

"I don't think everyone was 
aware of the memorial. It doesn't 
get much attention," Chris Carter, 
freshman in sociology, said. 

"Many people don't know 
where it's at or what it is. We 
wanted to bring attention to it," 
he said. 

The memorial, near All Faiths 
Chapel, was built through the use 
of private funds donated by Man- 
hattan residents, area businesses 

and students. 

Bill Arck, executive director of 
the memorial committee and di- 
rector of Alcohol and Other Drug 
Education Services, said the Uni- 
versity was responsible for main- 
taining the memorial. However, 
he said he was pleased the Delts 
volunteered to clean it. 

"This was kind of a surprise,"

Carter said cleaning the memo-

"Seeing all the names of guys 
made me realize what these guys 
had to deal with," he said. "Some 
were guys like us yanked out of 
college for the war." 

Cleaning the memorial was 
worthwhile, Carter said. 

"I don't think they (veterans) 
get the respect they deserve," he 
said. "It just gives you a good 
feeling to do something in memory 
of them."

The two fraternity houses were

"You can

Brice Davis, 
SAE Home- 
coming chair- 
man andjunior 
in landscape architecture, said. 

That proximity gave the houses 
ample opportunity for interaction. 
"We have an annual snowball 
fight. There's a great barrier be- 
tween our houses. It's like two 
forts," said Travis Funk, Farm- 
House Homecoming chairman and 
junior in kinesiology. "We don't 
hate them by any means. We're 

just boys having fun." 

Around Halloween time, the 
SAEs maintained the rivalry and 
set a scarecrow in a recliner in 
FarmHouse's back parking lot, Ted 
Glasco, FarmHouse president and 
senior in computer science, said. 

In retaliation, FarmHouse mem- 
bers lit the recliner on fire and 
placed it on SAE's basketball court. 

Because both fraternities had 
about 60 members, and their Home- 
coming partner, Alpha Chi Omega 
sorority, had about 120, pairing up 
kept the numbers even, Funk said. 

"Neither of our houses had 
much Homecoming experience. 
We both mostly had guys who 
had never done Homecoming 
before," Funk said. "I think we 
did a really good job for such an 
inexperienced group." 

The Homecoming partners fin- 
ished fourth in Pant the Chant. 

Despite pulling together for com- 
petition, the neighboring fraternities 
continued their friendly rivalry 
throughout Homecoming week. 

"I heard firecrackers go off 
outside and found out that they 
had dumped trash in our yard, and 

then we had a firecracker war," 
Glasco said. "The SAEs came back 
over to help clean up later that 
night, though." 

Both houses said it was not 
difficult to put aside their rivalry 
and work together. 

"We had a good time together, 
and we'd do it again," Funk said. 
"We had a lot of get-togethers like 
barbecues outside of Homecom- 
ing to get the houses to know each 
other so we could work together." 

Glasco had a similar philosophy. 

"The bottomline is we weren't 
out for the cutthroat competition. 
No one was twisting our arms to 
work together. We were there for 
a good time, and that's what we 
got," he said. "What lasts after 
Homecoming is the friends you 
make, not the competition." 

Although Homecoming gave 
the fraternities a chance to work 
together, some didn't put aside 
their friendly rivalry. 

"I still talk to a lot of the Farm- 
house guys," Davis said. "They're 
a good bunch of guys, but that 
doesn't mean I wouldn't shoot a 
bottle rocket at them."

senior in management, said. "It's

Pride was one of the biggest 
reasons the tradition continued. 

"It's something we take pride 
in, and we all know it's a goal we 
can reach together. It's the effort 
of the whole house," Denise 
Schneweis, junior in accounting, 

Nikki Wilson, intramural chair- 
woman and sophomore in kinesi- 
ology, agreed. 

"As a house, we take a lot of 
pride in intramurals, and by doing 
it, keeping something that is that 
long-standing, you build up a repu- 
tation," she said. "And you want 
to keep that reputation." 

Of the 135 members, about 
40-50 competed in more than 25 
different sporting contests, from 
arm-wrestling to horseshoes to 
team basketball. 

"We really encourage involve- 
ment and participation," Wilson 
said. "We don't always win be-

house. It's because we participate 
in almost every sport possible."

"A lot of my friends in the

other girls in different houses who 
I've gotten to know and become 
friends with because of 
intramurals," Marmie said. 

Wilson said she became ac- 
quainted with other members of 
her house because of intramurals. 

"That's how I got to know my 
pledge class my freshman year, by 
playing football," she said. 

Marmie said intramurals in- 
volved the members of the house 
in ways other than direct compe- 

"The people who don't play 
usually come and support us at the 
games. We have a group of girls 
called the 'crescent cuties' that 
show up in crazy clothes and are 
just loud and obnoxious and crazy. 

"It makes a good atmosphere 
for the G Phis," she said. "It's a 
tradition that we want to keep

thetas take steps to fight cancer 

by Wade Sisson 

alking in a cancer relay gave 
Kappa Alpha Thetas an ap- 
preciation for the cause they 
were supporting — life. 

Fifteen Thetas joined seven 
campus groups in Relay for Life, 
which took place Aug. 27 in Me- 
morial Stadium. 

Walking from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. 
inspired a bonding experience 
among the participants, Kristen 
Falkenberg, senior in architectural 
engineering, said. 

"There's so little time in col- 
lege to just sit down and talk," she 
said. "It was also a good chance to 
help the community. 

Each team had one member 
walking or jogging for 20 minutes 
at a time. It was the first year 
student groups participated in the 
relay, said Mary Stamey, co-chair- 
person of the relay and treasurer of 
the Riley County unit of the 
American Cancer Society. 

"Fundraising for a philanthropy 
will be a part of your life, so it's 
life-like," Stamey said. "Students 
are energetic and creative, and 
they make any event fun. They 
add a whole new dimension to 

any activity. 

For Susan Eby, sophomore in 
secondary education, the cause hit 
close to home. 

"I thought it was neat because 
both my grandmothers had cancer 
and survived," Eby said. "It helps 
them fight cancer and look for a 
cure. Potentially, I could have it, 
so it was meaningful to me." 

Luminaries, lit for people af- 
flicted with the disease, were a 
highlight of the evening. 

"It was neat because the entire 
track was lit up," Eby said. "When 
we lit up the luminaries, everyone 
involved in the event walked, and 
that was really neat, seeing every- 
one pull together." 

A guest speaker who suffered 
from cancer spoke to the partici- 
pants about the importance of the 

"She said she appreciated ev- 
eryone who helped raise money, 
so we saw where the money was 
going — to help this woman fight 
cancer," Falkenberg said. "It 
brought to life the cause we were 
walking for." 

Each house member who 

joined the Theta relay team raised 
$100 in pledges to participate in 
the event, Falkenberg said. Par- 
ticipants in the Relay for Life

kappas spend semester abroad 

by Lesley Moss 

ommunal living helped 

smooth the transition of 

studying in a foreign country 

for Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority 


"Living in the Kappa house 
with a group of different types of 
people helped me to live with 
people who were very different 
from me while I was in France," 
Noelle Turpinat, senior in mod- 
ern languages, said. 

Turpinat studied French at a 
language school called L'Etoile in 
Paris during summer 1994. 

"I'm a French major, and I 
wanted more experience of being 
immersed in the language and 
culture," Turpinat said. "I think 
it's very important because it makes 
you a more well-rounded per- 

Heather Harris, junior in life 
sciences and pre-medicine, said 
she studied Spanish language and 
culture in Cuernavaca, Mexico, 
for a summer along with Jennifer 

Viterise, 1994 graduate. 

After returning from Mexico, 
Harris said, she enjoyed sharing 
her experiences with her Kappa 

"I spoke Spanish the first three 
weeks when I returned," she said, 
"and I drove all of my friends 

Crystal Goenng, senior injour- 
nalism and mass communications, 
said the sorority helped expose 
her to different types of people 
and beliefs. This helped her adjust 
at Richmond College in London, 
where she studied British culture 
during the 1994 spring semester. 

"I met people from all parts of 
the United States and England 
while I was studying in London," 
Goering said. "I got a lot of people 
skills there." 

Christie Fipps, sophomore in 
social work and modern languages, 
said she hoped studying abroad 
would help give her an apprecia- 
tion for people. 

"I think it's good to under- 
stand how vulnerable people can 
feel, and I'll be experiencing that 
when I go to 
Ferrand on my 
own," she said. 

Fipps, who 
planned to 
study French at 
Blaise Pascal in 
Ferrand in 
France, said 

"Living in the 

Kappa house with 

a group of different 

types of people 

helped me to live 

with people who 
leaving would were different 

be difficult. ' 

from me while I was 
in France." 

"I'll miss liv- 
ing with 67 
other girls who 
are always con- 
cerned about 
each other and 
what's going on 
in each others' lives," she said 
"I'll miss the support."

lambda chi seeks seventh win 

by Trina Holmes 

ambda Chi Alpha fraternity 
worked toward its seventh 
consecutive Grand High Al- 
pha, the highest national award 
Lambda Chi chapters could 

Corey Kephart, Lambda Chi 
vice president and sophomore in 
business administration, said chap- 
ters were eligible for the award 
every three years. To win the 
award, Kephart said, chapters had 
to receive an excellent rating from 
their national consultants for six 
consecutive semesters. 

"Our consultant meets all our 
officers and a majority of the chap- 
ter members," Kephart said. "He 
stays for about a week and com- 
pares our chapter with other chap- 
ters across the country." 

Brian Siegrist, Lambda Chi 
president and senior in journalism 

and mass communications, said 
each officer in the house had about 
15 office standards to uphold. 

"We must cover most of the 
areas well to get an excellent rat- 
ing," Siegrist said. "Those offices 
cover everything from academics 
to PR to chapter management." 

About three or four of the 212 
chapters in the United States and 
Canada received the award each 
year, Siegrist said. 

"We win the award through 
our programs throughout the year. 
We have to maintain the standards 
all year round," Siegrist said. "We 
can't just cover things up when 
the consultant gets here." 

The fraternity had a strong aca- 
demic program. For the past five 
years, they remained in the top 
quartile ofK-State fraternity grade- 
point averages as they maintained 

a collective GPA that averaged 
around 3.0. 

The members also became in- 
volved in the community by par- 
ticipating in events with children 
associated with Special Olmpyics 
and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of 
Manhattan Inc. 

Besides academics and com- 
munity service, the fraternity was 
also evaluated for their campus 
involvement and alumni support. 

Siegrist said his chapter had the 
record for the longest consecutive 
winning streak. 

"For 18 years, we've main- 
tained excellence in our chapter," 
he said. "It's a big motivational 
factor — kind of an inbred tradi- 
tion of what we have to uphold 
through our members and alumni. 
It's kind of a weight on our shoul- 
ders until we win the next one."

marketing, said he was not sur- 
prised by the women's teams' lack 
of interest. 

"We had the tournament later 
in the year, after people were done 
with (intramural) flag football, and 
there wasn't as much interest in it 
for the women's teams," Allen 
said. "Guys are always interested 
in playing — there was just a 
stronger interest from the guys' 
side than the girls'." 

With 18 teams in the tourna- 
ment, the fraternity raised $2,300 
for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, 
or Lou Gehrig's disease, the Phi 
Delt national philanthropy. 
Cherafat said this an increase of 
nearly 50 percent over last year. 

Having a flag-football tourna- 
ment was a fitting way to raise 
money for Lou Gehrig's disease, 
Barton Vance, junior in manage- 
ment, said. 

"Not only is the tournament 
for a good cause, but it develops 
competition and sportsmanship 
similar to what Lou Gehrig 

brought to the field, which is why 
we do it," Vance said. 

Because Gehrig, a 1930s New 
York Yankees first baseman, was a 
Phi Delt, the philanthropy was a 
way for the fraternity to help in 
the search for a cure for the dis- 
ease, Vance said. 

"A goal of the fraternity is to 
try to find a cure, not only because 
he was our brother, but because it 
affects thousands of people," he 

Cherefat said the Phi Delts 
sponsored the tournament for 15 
years. Fraternity members found 
the tournament preferable to ask- 
ing for donations. 

"It's a lot easier to sponsor a fun 
event like this that works for a 
good cause, rather than going door 
to door and asking for money," 
Vance said. 

"It's fun for all the participants 
and people who work on it," he 
said. "It's self-satisfying because 
you know at the end it's going for 
a fellow brother."

hi Kappa Tau members 
worked to make their 

fraternity's 70th anniversary an 
event alumni would attend. 

Jay Smajda, senior in second- 
ary education, said the Phi Taus 
had anniversary celebrations ev- 
ery five years to ensure alumni 
would be interested in returning 
to the house. 

Josh Nelson, freshman in arts 
and sciences, said the house in- 
vited past presidents and alumni to 
the April 28-29 event. 

"It gives the alumni a chance to 
see the house and a lot of people 
they haven't seen in a long time," 
Nelson said. "We try to show 
them how the house has improved 
over the years." 

The house alumni had lived in 
and the regulations they lived by 

phi kappa tau turns 70 

by the Royal Purple staff 

underwent many changes through 
the years, Nelson said. 

"We have the oldest house on 
campus," he said, "We really had 
to do some reconstruction to the 
basement after the flood (of 1 993) ." 

The anniversary celebration 
provided an opportunity for 
alumni to observe changes. 

"Several of them have told us 
they haven't seen the house and 
that they didn't live in the house 
we're in now," Nelson said. 
"They'll be able to see how we 
live now and how we keep the 
standards up to how they were." 

To add formality to the occa- 
sion, events such as a banquet and 
tours of campus and the house 
were scheduled. 

"We decided to make it formal 
because the alumni wanted it to be 

something special," Nelson said. 

At the banquet, members 
planned to give awards to several 
alumni. Award winners were to 
include the individual who had 
traveled the farthest, the oldest 
alumnus and the alumnus who 
helped the house most through- 
out the years, Smajda said. 

New members would find the 
event a positive one, Nelson said, 
because they would have an op- 
portunity to learn from the 
alumni's experiences in the frater- 

"It will give them a chance to 
see what kind of people came out 
of the house," Nelson said, "and 
their standing in the community 
will show how they used the lead- 
ership skills they learned in the

phi kap members sponsor raffle 

orty sets of parents and their 
families converged at the Phi 

Kappa Theta house for food, 
fun and relaxation on Family 
Weekend, Nov. 19-20. 

Activities got under way at 5 
p.m. Saturday as guests and Phi 
Kap members attended the K- 
State-Oklahoma State football 

The group then returned to 
the fraternity house to have din- 
ner, socialize and sponsor a raffle. 

"After the game, we hosted a 
raffle to raise money for the frater- 
nity and as a way to socialize more 
with all the families," Jeff Wilcox, 
Phi Kap president and senior in 

marketing, said. 

Money raised was used in De- 
cember to purchase a new laser 
printer for the chapter house. 

"The goal this year was to get 
$600, and we met that goal," 
Wilcox said. 

After dinner and the raffle, 
Wilcox said, some of the parents 
and Phi Kaps went to Aggieville, 
while others stayed at the house 
and socialized. 

Jason Miller, junior in pre-den- 
tistry and biology, and Brian Till, 
sophomore in architecture, said 
they were impressed with the turn- 

"This year was a lot more orga-

nized, primarily because of all the 
hard work our vice president had 
done," Miller 
said. "The turn- 
out was good." 

positive aspect 
of the weekend 
was that visit- 
ing parents 
learned about 
the fraternity. 

"I thought it 
was a great way 
for parents to learn how the house 
worked," Till said, "and (it) al- 
lowed some of the new guys to get 
to know each other better." 

"I thought it was a 
great way for par- 
ents to learn how 
the house worked."

pike house broken into during break 

by the Royal Purple staff 

i Kappa Alphas returned from 
winter break to discover their 

house had been broken into 
and vandalized. 

"I spent 10 minutes trying to 
get into the house with my key 
but couldn't," Eric Stonestreet, 
senior in sociology, said. "So, I 
crawled in a window. All I could 
see was the pop machine. That's 
when I knew something was 
wrong. It was destroyed. 

"After I realized the house had 
been broken into, I called 91 1 and 
flipped on all the lights and went 
to get my firearm out of the safe in 
my room," he said. "That's when 
I noticed that the light in my room 
was on." 

When he burst into the room, 
he tripped over his toolbox. 

"They had used my tools to 
break into all of the rooms of the 
house," Stonestreet said. 

Personal belongings were found 
lying in bags in the hallways. 

"The burglars weren't after big 
stuff," he said. "They were after 
things that could fit into a bag or 

After two police officers arrived 

and confirmed there were no in- 
truders in the house, they searched 
outside and found a suspect. 

Bullets belonging to Stonestreet 
linked the man to the crime, 
Stonestreet said. 

Police continued to investigate 
whether other intruders partici- 
pated in the break-in, Capt. Allen 
Raynor of the Riley County Po- 
lice Department said. 

The Pike house wasn't the only 
house burglarized during winter 
break. Intruders also struck Acacia 
and Phi Kappa Theta fraternities. 

"The police think the only way 
they could've gotten in was 
through a laundry-room win- 
dow," Steve Collins, Acacia mem- 
ber and junior in accounting, said. 

Among the items stolen from 
Acacia were three mountain bikes, 
a portable compact-disc player, a 
book bag, two car amplifiers and 
one car stereo. 

Members' losses ranged from 
$300 to $400 each, Steve Collins, 
Acacia member and junior in ac- 
counting, said. 

"The house damages will be 
paid for through the fraternity's 

by the Royal Purple 

insurance," he said, "but our own 
things have to be paid for through 
homeowners' insurance or our 

Phi Kap members reported 
similar occur- 


"The pop 
machines were 
destroyed for 
the money in- 
side of them, 
and our things 
were in bags by 
the door, like 
they were com- 
ing back later to 

get them," Justin DeMoss, Phi 
Kap member and freshman in psy- 
chology, said. 

Although Phi Kap and Acacia 
also reported theft and vandalism, 
Eric Pack, Pike member and se- 
nior in journalism and mass com- 
munications, said his fraternity 
suffered the most from the holiday 

"We were definitely the house 
with the worst damage," Pack 
said. "There wasn't one square 
inch that wasn't touched." 

"They had used 
my tools to break 
into all of the rooms 
of the house."

show popularity grows 

by the Royal Purple staff 

A member of the Delta Sigma 
Theta shows her sorority's sign 
at Neak Frasty. Hours of intense 
practice helped prepare the 
members for the competition.

ancers from four K-State 
black fraternities and sorori- 
ties moved to the rhythm of 
their own bodies. 

The dancers competed against 
black greeks from Oklahoma, 
Southwest Missouri State and Cen- 
tral Missouri State universities in 
the fourth-annual Neak Frasty step 
show Nov. 5 at Bramlage Coli- 

"Stepping is 
originally de- 
rived from Af- 
rican dance," 
Omar Davis, 
president of Al- 
pha Phi Alpha 
fraternity and 
sophomore in 
landscape ar- 
chitecture, said.

can dance tra- 
ditions as a

Snell, member 
of Alpha Kappa 
Alpha sorority 
andjunior in el- 
ementary edu- 
cation, said. 

"You have 
to get together 
and practice the 

for the step 
show meant hours of intense prac- 
tice, Snell said. 

"You have to make noise with 
your own body, clapping hands, 
foot stomping and hitting your 
body with your hands," Snell said. 
"I cried learning this stuff." 

For the past four years, the men 

of Alpha Phi Alpha organized the 
step show. 

"It's becoming more popular, 
so the quality and quantity of par- 
ticipants has improved," Snell said. 

Two sororities, AKA and Delta 
Sigma Theta, and two fraternities, 
Phi Beta Sigma and Omega Psi 
Phi, participated in the event. 

Kay King, member of AKA 
and senior in modern languages, 
said the eight members of her 
sorority's step team practiced three 
to four hours every day for three 

The AKAs placed second in 
the competition. 

The women of Delta Sigma 
Theta from Oklahoma State Uni- 
versity placed first. 

Omega Psi Phi fraternity of K- 
State also placed second. 

They were defeated by the men 
of Phi Beta Sigma from Southwest 
Missouri State University. 

Kevin Colon, academic adviser 
for the football program at K- 
State and one of the judges for the 
step show, said the participants 
were judged on showmanship, 
creativity, precision and appear- 

They also were given a time 
limit of eight to 15 minutes. 

Proceeds from the step show 
went toward the Alpha Phi Alpha 
scholarship fund. 

The fund supported the 
Thurgood Marshall Scholarship 
Award, which was presented to a 
male and female college student 
and to a male and female high- 
school senior in the spring semes- 

The year's performances ended, 
as was the tradition, with a mix- 
ture of sounds known as the power 
step, Snell said. 

"Everything we do has mean- 
ing to it," she said. 

"With a power step at the end, 
you're really stomping and mak- 
ing music with hands, feet, legs — 
whatever it takes."

nity compete in

pi kappa phis support disabled children 

by the Royal Purple staff 

he Pi Kappa Phi fraternity 

pushed charity to the forefront. 

The fraternity members sup- 
ported the People Understanding 
the Severely Handicapped, or 
PUSH, program, which involved 
community service and raising 
money and awareness for disabled 

To raise awareness, fraternity 
members conducted their annual 
pole sit in the free-speech zone 
outside the K-State Union, Chris 
Zelch, sophomore in secondary 
education, said. 

Members of the fraternity sat 
on top of the pole for five days for 
a total of 100 hours in September. 

"The pole sit got people's at- 
tention. We handed out pamphlets 
and information, but mainly it gave 

awareness to disabled kids through 
people's curiosity," James Wolf, 
junior in computer science, said. 

The pole sit raised about $100 
in public donations and additional 
money from sponsors who sup- 
ported the event, Zelch said. For 
a $35 to $40 fee, sponsors were 
able have their names on T-shirts 
given out during the week. 

For the community-service part 
of the PUSH program, the frater- 
nity hoped to volunteer time to 
help the Big Lakes Development 
Center, which offered a school 
and day-care program for the se- 
verely handicapped. 

The fraternity also sponsored a 
mountain-bike race in early Oc- 
tober. The second-annual race was 
on a three-fourths mile course at 

the Tuttle Creek Spillway Cycle 
Area, southeast of the Tuttle Creek 
Dam and Reservoir. 

About 30 cyclists participated 
in the mountain-bike race, which 
raised $150 for PUSH. The par- 
ticipants ranged in ages from 14 to 
25, but most were college stu- 
dents, Bill Ryan, senior in me- 
chanical engineering, said. 

People entered in one of three 
race categories — beginner, inter- 
mediate and expert. 

Ryan, a race participant, said 
although it was his first race, he 
placed fifth in the intermediate 

"I had been wanting to do it for 
a long time," he said. "The race 
was fun, and it got people in-

site of house convenient for members 

eing the closest house to cam- 
pus was a benefit for mem- 
bers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. 
"I think we've got the best 
location of any fraternity on cam- 
pus," Ben Stout, senior in elemen- 
tary education, said. 

With campus just across the 
street, SAEs had only a short dis- 
tance to travel. 

I can sleep in a 

e bit longer, slap 

on a cap and be 

out the door and 

on my way. " 

Ben Stout, 

senior in elementary 


"It's cool 
because I can 
get to anywhere 
on campus in 
five or 10 min- 
utes," Stout 
said. "I can sleep 
in a little bit 
longer, slap on 
a cap and be out 
the door and on 

my way. 

The prox- 
imity of the fra- 
ternity to campus was even more 
appreciated during winter months. 
"As you see people walking six 
blocks and freezing their tails off, 
you kind of appreciate it," Jim 
Boomer, freshman in business ad- 
ministration, said. 

Billy Dunn, SAE president and 

senior in construction science, said 
the house's location was a plus to 
prospective members. 

"I was the rush chairman last 
year, and that's a big selling point 
— especially for engineering stu- 
dents, because Durland Hall is 
right across the street," Dunn said. 

Being next-door neighbors 
with the Farmhouse fraternity was 
also a chance for some fun and 

"The Farmhouse guys would 
go on their roof with bottle-rocket 
launchers, and we'd go on our 
deck and shoot back. It was a lot of 
fun," Stout said. 

"Two years ago and last year 
we were the fireworks house, but 
we got busted too many times, so 
we had to stop." 

The fun didn't stop with fire- 

"Sometimes they'll be outside, 
and we'll start chucking snowballs 
at them," Dunn said. "One time 
we were throwing snowballs for 
two hours." 

With all of the traffic on 
Demson Avenue, the house's im- 
age was important, Stout said. 
Sometimes the front yard was an 

by Cary Conover 

important indication of what the 
house was like. 

"People drive by and see us out 
in the front yard having fun all the 
time, and I think that's a very 
positive thing," he said. 

Members who did not live in 
the fraternity didn't let their out- 
of-house status interfere with 
keeping in touch with the in- 
house members, Stout said. 

"I think the one thing that 
really helps that is if any of the out- 
of-house guys want to, they can 
drive to the house, park there and 
walk to class," Stout said. "So, if 
anything, it's good because it re- 
ally keeps them involved with the 

But the fraternity's location 
wasn't its most important aspect, 
Dunn said. The members' per- 
sonalities and the friendships de- 
veloped were what truly mattered. 

"Like with anything, usually 
there's got to be the match with 
the personalities," Dunn said. "But 
if one person is comparing our 
house to another, and he really 
likes the guys in both, he might 
choose our house because of its

sigma chis celebrate 45th 

orty-five years ofbrotherhood 
came together when the Sigma 
Chi fraternity celebrated its an- 
niversary Dec. 3 at the Holidome. 
"The alumni came back, some 
of who were the first members of 
the house," Cory Mitchell, sopho- 
more in architectural engineer- 
ing, said. "It was special because so 
many cared to come back for a 

David Harrison, sophomore 
in engineering, said it was in- 
teresting to meet the chapter's 

"It was interesting to see the 
history of the house, to see how 
involved others were and how 
they went through the house, and 
to know what it's done for oth- 
ers," he said. 

The speaker for the night was 
astronaut Greg Harbaugh, Sigma 
Chi alumnus and Purdue graduate. 

Harbaugh was named a Sig- 
nificant Sig, an honorary title given 

to fraternity members who had 
distinguished themselves in their 

Harbaugh logged 343 hours in 
space and flew on two space flights. 
While addressing the Sigma Chis, 
he explained why the house was 
important and how it had changed 
his life. 

"I knew I was home," he said, 
speaking about the first time he 
walked into the fraternity house. 
"There was no doubt about it." 

Members said Harbaugh's 
speech meant a lot to them. 

"It was neat to see a Sigma Chi 
who was so successful," Brian 
Olsen, freshman in biology, said. 
"It was good to know that he 
hadn't forgotten about the frater- 
nity or our values." 

Kevin Kline, junior in pre- 
physical therapy, said he also en- 
joyed Harbaugh's presentation. 

"The best part of the speech 
was when he showed actual foot-

"There is a 
lot of tradi-

"You realize 
that people are behind you what- 
ever you do. People here reward 
you for your successes and console 
you for the failures." 

Olsen agreed. 

"There is a great tradition on 
campus, and members take pride 
in the activities we are in," he said.

sigma kappas celebrate founding 

by Sarah Kallenbach 

elebrating 120 years of sister- 
hood took most of November 
for the Sigma Kappa sorority. 
The house was founded Nov. 
18, 1874, at Colby College in 
Maine. To commemorate the 
founding, each chapter around the 
country had a Week of Giving. 

"We call it the Week of Giving 
because that's when we do things 
that help others, "Jeanine Dercher, 
junior in secondary education, said. 
Celebrated before or after the 
anniversary, the Week of Giving 
included a program about the 
house founders, Amy Neises, jun- 
ior in apparel and textile market- 
ing, said. 

During the month of Novem- 
ber, the sorority also participated 
in its philanthrophies. 

Lick Alzheimer's was a nation- 
wide program that raised money 

in an attempt to find a cure for the 
disease. The Sigma Kappas par- 
ticipated by selling lollipops on 

"We all took turns selling suck- 
ers in the Union. A friend and I 
even went around to the sororities 
and fraternities selling them," 
Dercher said. 

Sorority members also partici- 
pated in a program called the Maine 
Seacoast Mission, which provided 
items for needy people. 

"Boxes are put in the fraterni- 
ties and sororities for dry goods," 
Neises said. "We send the stuff to 
people who live off the coast of 
Maine and don't have a Wal-Mart 
next door. We send the stuff they 
need in time for Christmas." 

The chapter was rewarded for 
its efforts with a letter. 

"We got a note in the mail 

from a person that the Maine Sea- 
coast Mission helped," Dercher 
said. "It was touching. They said 
they appreciated that they could 
count on us every year. It was neat 
because we never got a reaction 

The best part of the month's 
events was a sweatshirt, she said. 

"What I thought was really 
neat was that one school in Mis- 
souri designed a sweatshirt, and all 
the other sororities around the 
country could buy them," Dercher 

The sweatshirts were designed 
to show what Sigma Kappa repre- 
sented. They displayed the 
sorority's flower and colors. 

"I worked with a girl in Kansas 
City who had the same sweatshirt 
as I did," she said. "It shows our

Sigma Nu and Alpha Tau

visited 11 sorority houses Oct. 10

other people." 

Chad Brungardt, 

junior in construction science 

This activity 
was part of a 
weeklong cel- 
ebration called 
Black Foot/ 
White Foot in which the two 
fraternitiesjoined together to host 

The tradition began after James 
Frank Hopkins watched an Alpha 
Tau Omega pledging ceremony 
at Virginia Military Institute in 
Lexington, Va. Hopkins didn't 
like how the actives treated the 
pledges, Mike Voegtle, Sigma Nu 
social chairman and senior in ar- 

chitecture, said. 

"One of our founders was in a 
pledging ceremony and witnessed 
a hazing event where the actives 
wore white sheets and black 
shoes," Voegtle said. "He left and 
deemed them (ATOs) black foot 
and us white foot." 

Hopkins helped found Sigma 
Nu in 1869 at the Virginia Mili- 
tary Institute. 

Across the United States, ATO 
and Sigma Nu chapters partici- 
pated in Black Foot/White Foot 
to celebrate being founded at the 
same place. The K-State chapters 
had participated in the tradition 
for more than 10 years. 

"Since the early '80s, we've 
been having the party," Voegtle 
said. "The ADPi house has feet 
painted that date back since 1983." 

The Monday feet painting be- 
gan the week's activities. The next 
day, the fraternities had a date dash 
at Bobby T's Restaurant 'n' Bar. 
The members dressed up on 
Wednesday to formally invite their 
dates to Friday's party. 

"We go to formal dinner and 

give them (the dates) a rose," Chad 
Brungardt, junior in construction 
science, said. 

No events were scheduled for 
Thursday so the members could 
relax before the Oct. 14 party. 

"Since it was really close to Hal- 
loween, we had a costume party," 
Voegtlesaid. "It was at the Houston 
Street Ballroom. It's usually one of 
our best parties of the year. Every- 
one looks forward to it." 

The next day, the weeklong 
celebration ended with an all- 
University party at the Sigma Nu 
fraternity house. 

Voegtle said the activities 
brought members of the two 
houses into closer contact with 
each other. 

"This year I was more involved 
and got to meet more of those 
guys (ATOs) and made some 
friends," he said. 

Brungardt said he hoped the 
tradition would continue. 

"I look forward to it each year," 
he said. "It's just a good time to 
get together and meet other

"They put up a plaque with my 
name on it," Frost said. 

Danny Chiles, alumni coordi- 
nator and sophomore in business 
administration, said members dedi- 
cated the chapter room to pay 
respect for all Frost had done for 
the fraternity. 

The executive committee came 
up with the idea to dedicate the 
chapter in fall 1993, Chiles said. 

"He has made a lot of dona- 
tions to help out the chapter," 
Miles said. 

Frost served as national presi- 
dent of the fraternity from 1945- 
1946, Chiles said. He was also the 
first student body president in 

Frost visited the chapter room 
while en route to his family home 
in Marshall County. 

"They gave me quite a royal 
welcome," he said. 

Frost said he was happy he was 
able to see the chapter room be- 
cause he did not travel much any- 

Members of the house remod- 
eled the chapter room with new 
carpet and couches, put up a flag, 
painted the walls and hung a plaque 
with Frost's name and picture. 

Alumni such as Frost made the 
house possible, Chiles said. 

"We dedicated the room to 
him because of everything he's 
done," he said. 

"He's never left a stone 
unturned. People can relate to 
him for what he's done. People 
actually know why we dedicated 
the room to him — it's not like 
people say, 'who is this guy?'"

tri sigma membership declines 

by Amy Smith 

hanges were implemented in 

Tri Sigma's rush techniques in 
hopes of increasing house 

"We thought we had a really 
good rush this year. We got a lot 
of really good girls and hope to get 
even more in the spring to help 
build our numbers," Becki 
Blankenship, rush director and 
junior in secondary education, said. 

Building the number of house 
members was important after num- 
bers decreased four years ago, 
Debbie Gill, senior in journalism 
and mass communications, said. 

"Our numbers declined four 
years ago when the seniors left 
because they were such a big class, 
and we didn't have a strong rush 
that year to replace them," she said. 

Dismissing members who did 
not meet the sorority's grade re- 

quirements contributed to the 
decline, Cheryl Mann, senior in 
elementary education, said. 

"One year, a pledge class had 
really bad grades, and the house 
took grade risks and lost a good 
portion of the pledges," she said. 

Pledge classes with many up- 
per-class members lost people each 
year with graduation, she said. 

Sorority members said they be- 
lieved the entire greek system ex- 
perienced membership problems. 

Tri Sigma members said they 
thought the National Panhellenic 
Council's changes to rush helped 
increase their membership. 

"No bursting really helped," 
Gill said. "You got to concentrate 
on conversation skills instead of 
spending time practicing running 
out of the house screaming." 

Barb Robel, Greek Affairs ad- 

viser, said bursting was an activity 
in which members ran out of the 
sorority house to entertain rush- 
ees before a rush party. 

Without bursting, rushees 
couldn't count how many mem- 
bers were in each house, 
Blankenship said. 

Using the new rush rules 
weren't the only way Tri Sigmas 
tried to increase numbers. 

"The best way to get your 
sorority recognized is to be seen 
together and get your name out 
on campus," Mann said. 

Although the Tri Sigmas ad- 
justed their programs to increase 
numbers, they found advantages 
to being a smaller sorority. 

"You know everyone," 
Blankenship said. "You may not 
be best friends with them, but you 
know something about everyone."

TKEs won the fraternity league 
title in football, the all-University 
title in basketball, the track meet, 
cross country meet and both the 
double and single indoor and out- 
door handball titles. 

Recruiting house members for 
intramurals wasn't a problem, 
Palmgren said. 

"We don't apply any pressure 
or anything," he said. "We just 
traditionally have a lot of guys 
who want to participate and who

"Guys don't mind giving up an 
hour or two at a time to become 
really good, and that is the key." 

About 75 percent of TKE 
members participated in intramu- 

ral competition, Palmgren said. 

"Intramurals gives us all a goal 
to look toward as a group — a 
main focus in things we are do- 
ing," Jeff Tauscher, senior in ac- 
counting, said. 

Preston Barton, sophomore in 
economics, said the emphasis on 
intramural participation allowed 
him to continue with activities he 
was interested in before college. 

"I felt that this was the house I 
would fit in with the best because 
they had some of the same inter- 
ests that I did coming out of high 
school," Barton said. 

Intramurals was a source of ri- 
valry for greek houses, Palmgren 

"It seems like anybody on cam- 
pus who plays a TKE and beats 
them takes a lot of pride in doing 
so," he said.

theta xi excels in grades, intramurals 

by Sarah Kallenbach 

'There's a tota 
new attitude this 
year. We are a lot 
more together.' 7 

Chris Hanson, 

Theta Xi president and 

sophomore in nuclear 


ttitude made all the difference. 
Members' attitudes defined 
Theta Xi as a campus leader 
in academics and intramurals. 

"It's the personality of the guys. 
We get good people who care and 
have good attitudes." Toby Rush, 
sophomore in 
mechanical en- 
gineering, said. 
The atti- 
tudes carried 
over into every 
aspect of the 
house, Rush 

The Theta 
Xis took first in 
grades among 
fraternities for 
the eighth con- 
secutive semester and 17 of the 
past 20 semesters. 

The members managed to 
maintain their grades without any 
mandatory study system. 

"Basically, we are on the hon- 
ors system," Rush said. "When 
you have something going good, 

people want to keep it going." 

Individual discipline helped 
keep grades high. 

"When you give people re- 
spect, they tend to want to do 
good," Rush said. "It's all self- 

By placing first in grades, the 
fraternity earned bragging rights 
as well as designated drivers. 

Beta Theta Pi fraternity chal- 
lenged Theta Xi to see who would 
place first. When the Betas lost, 
they had to be designated drivers 
for the Theta Xis' next party. 

Competition didn't end with 

The house also placed first in 
all-fraternity football and second 
in intramural volleyball. 

"There's a totally new attitude 
this year. We are a lot more to- 
gether," Chris Hanson, Theta Xi 
president and sophomore in 
nuclear engineering, said. "Take 
sports — we're all there cheering 
the team on." 

The successful finish in 
intramurals was exciting for the 

house, Jeremy McFadden, sopho- 
more in fisheries and wildlife biol- 
ogy, said. 

"This was really big," 
McFadden said. "In the past, we've 
never really done well." 

Brent Peterson, sophomore in 
engineering, said improvement in 
sports could be attributed to well- 
rounded rush classes. 

"We like to rush people who 
did a lot of activities in high 
school," Peterson said. "We are a 
small house with only a capacity of 
46, so we can afford to be picky." 

New members were important 
to the fraternity, Rush said. 

"The lifeblood of the house is 
rush," he said. "We look for guys 
who have the personality. It car- 
ries over." 

Rush said the fraternity lost a 
lot of seniors, but the younger 
members were carrying on the 
house's traditions. 

"We are getting really good, 
well-rounded guys in our house," 
McFadden said. "We try to excel 
in all aspects of college life."

mystery surrounds triangle member 

by Brooke Graber 

"The thing about 

Q is he always tells 

you the truth. He's 

one of the most 

brilliant people I 


Tim Peltzer, 

sophomore in 

computer engineering 

dangle members thought of 
him as Watergate's elusive 
Deep Throat. 

Or a brilliant man with files 
that might resolve questions about 
the assassina- 
tion of Presi- 
dent Kennedy. 
They called 
him Q. 

Thought to 
be in his 30s, Q 
was once a Tri- 
angle member 
and architec- 
ture student, 
house mem- 
bers said. The 
origin of his 
nickname was 

a mystery. 
"He's kind 
of evasive about that," Zac Bailey, 
senior in biological and agricul- 
tural engineering, said. 

"He moved in to help out about 
five years ago. 

"I've heard as many stories 
(about the origin of his nickname) 

as people who have asked him 
about it," Bailey said. "He said he 
used to go barnstorming. 

"His trademark was to crash 
into the side of barns and leave a 
hole in the shape of a Q. 

"Some people said he got his 
name from 'Star Trek, the Next 

Members said Q was a little 

"One time he got a bunch of 
mannequins and dressed them up 
and put them around the house," 
Bailey said. 

"He put them in people's beds 
and stuff. " 

Q, who didn't want to be in- 
terviewed, was a hermit, Bailey 

"When I was a pledge, some of 
the guys told me, 'Don't talk to 
him. He doesn't want to talk to 
you for three weeks.' He just de- 
cides things like that," Bailey said. 

Mike Schnieders, sophomore 
in geology, said Q had a twisted 
sense of humor. Schnieders said 
he and Q started a house tradition. 

"We have what's called Excess 
Friday," Schnieders said. "We 
gorge ourselves on tons of food, 
and then we walk around the house 
giving away food, saying, 'Wel- 
come to Excess Friday.'" 

Members said Q was a packrat 
who collected everything from 
old typewriters and skulls to man- 

"If you ever need to borrow 
anything, he's got it," he said. 

Members said they enjoyed 
having Q around because he served 
as a mentor and friend. 

He helped around the house 
by doing odd jobs and occasion- 
ally cooking meals. 

"The thing about Q is he al- 
ways tells you the truth," Tim 
Peltzer, sophomore in computer 
engineering, said. 

"He's one of the most brilliant 
people I know." 

Mysterious stories followed Q 
at every turn, as did nicknames. 

"He's our house god, actu- 
ally," Greg Berger, sophomore in 
architectural engineering, said.

k-state-salina builds residence hall 

by Wade Sisson 

"The feeling is that

-State-Salina modeled its drive 
to construct a new residence 
hall on the principle that if 
you build it, they will come. 
"What's happening to our col- 
lege is that we're getting more 
full-time students," Jack Henry, 
dean of K-State-Salina, said. "The 
feeling is that if 
we get better fa- 
cilities, such as 
the new dorms 
and the college 
center, we can

sembled an old 
Air Force base, 
Henry said. But 
with the addi- 
tion of the coi- 


Jack Henry, le f e u cente , r : 

, r .. _ r | which would 

dean or K-btate-bahna 

serve as a stu- 
dent union, and two residence 
halls, that image was beginning to 
change to that of a traditional 

Another addition planned for 
Salina's campus, Harbin Hall, 
wasn't slated to open untiljanuary 
1996. The new residence hall, 
named for 1950 K-State graduate 
Bill Harbin, would be designed to 
hold either 68 or 100 beds. 

Changing K-State-Salina's 

campus was meant to help the 
College of Technology reach its 
goal of having 1,300 students 
within a few years, Jake Greenup, 
coordinator of student life, said. 

"We've got these goals to be 
one of the preeminent tech schools 
in the country, and we need to 
have more housing to do that." 

Thirty residence-hall applica- 
tions for the next year had already 
been turned in by January, 
Greenup said. K-State-Salina's first 
residence hall opened in the fall 
and was already filled to capacity 
by the spring. 

Jared Bohndorf, sophomore in 
geographic information systems, 
moved into the residence hall in 
the fall. 

Bohndorf said he didn't think 
suitable housing in Salina was too 
difficult to find. 

"I'm looking for an apartment 
for next semester, "Bohndorf said. 
"It looks like we'll have a pretty 
easy time getting one." 

However, Jim Keating, head 
of K-State-Salina's engineering 
technology department, said hous- 
ing options were limited in Salina 
when he joined the College of 

"It's been two years since I was 
searching in that market," Keating 
said. "There were houses avail- 
able, but it wasn't what I wanted." 

Keating settled in Bennington, 

20 miles north of Salina. 

In fact, Keating warned David 
Arnold, who was hired for the 
spring semester as a civil engineer- 
ing technology professor, about 
Salina's housing situation. 

When Arnold began his own 
housing search, he said Salina's 
housing situation looked bleak. 

"It is tight," Arnold said. "As 
soon as something comes open, 
it's snapped up." 

For Arnold, an opportunity did 
come along. 

"Itjust happened that a gentle- 
man moved out," he said, "and 
we were lucky enough to find out 
about it." 

Ben Fosse, junior in the profes- 
sional pilot program, found a house 
in Salina, where he lived with two 

"It was hard to find a place," 
Fosse said. "It took me a month, 
and I finally found, in a newspa- 
per, someone who was looking 
for a roommate. 

"It took about a month to find 
a place that wasn't too expensive 
or a dump." 

Finding a suitable place to live 
in Salina was a two-edged sword, 
Greenup said. 

"Desirable housing is hard to 
find," he said. "I'm sure that's true 
in any town. You can find a place 
to live, but it depends on how you 
want to live."

noisy if I want 
to stay home on 
a weekend 
night, but it's 
nice not to have 
to drive home 
if I go drink- 
ing," she said. 

"I'm a real 
advocate of not 
drinking and 
driving, and I 
know quite a 
few people who 
do, so it's nice 
to live so close." 
Living close 
enough to walk 
places was at- 
tractive to Leif 
sophomore in 
who had lived 
three blocks 
from Aggieville 
for the past 2- 
1/2 years. 

"For me, it's a plus because 
living close to Aggieville, if you 
want to go to bars or to the Cam- 
pus Theatre, you don't have to 
worry about parking," he said. 

Julia Armstrong, junior in so- 
cial work who lived half a block 
from Aggieville, said she liked the 
easy access she had to both campus 
and the bars. 

"If you like to go out, it's easy 
to go out," she said. "And it gives 

you easy access to school." 

Armstrong said limited park- 
ing in the area was the only draw- 
back she noticed, but being able to 
walk to the bars was an advantage. 

"My friends can all park here, 
and we can walk, so no one gets 
into trouble," she said. 

"That way, everyone can have 
fun, there are no designated driv- 
ers, and we can walk home." 

Safety was not a concern, 
Campbell said, because Aggieville 
was frequently patrolled by police. 

"I worry a little bit about van- 
dalism, like having something sto- 
len off our front porch," she said. 

Living near Aggieville wasn't 
much different from living else- 
where in Manhattan, said 
Armstrong, who'd previously lived 
on Tuttle Creek Boulevard. 

"There was just as much that 
went on there as happens here," 
she said. "It's really quiet here." 

There were drawbacks to life 
near Aggieville. 

"A negative side to it is if you 
live in Aggieville, the negative 
elements may come down your 
street," Garretson said. 

Tires were slashed on cars 
parked along Moro Street near 
Aggieville during winter break. 
Garretson said his tires were spared. 

"Occasionally, if you have in- 
toxicated people walking down 
the street, you could have unruly 
behavior," he said. 

As a psychology major, 
Garretson said he hadn't given 
much thought to studying such 
behavior in his neighborhood, al- 
though he said there would be 
much to observe. 

"I could be analyzing why 
you watch people driving in circles 
not meeting anyone," he said. 

"You'll see large groups of 
high-school guys walking around 
who claim they're there to meet 
girls, but not too many girls walk 
up to eight guys in Starter jackets 
and say, 'Here's my number.'

service helps students explore options 

by Wade Sisson 

hen looking for a compat- 
ible roommate, some students 
took the scientific approach. 

Questionnaires found in the 
roommate-search notebook asked 
students who were seeking a room- 
mate or a place to live everything 
from how important a clean apart- 
ment was to what qualities they 
looked for in a roommate. 

The notebook was moved in 
October from the Dean of Student 
Life office in Holton Hall to the 
Office of Student Activities and 
Services in the K-State Union to 
make the service more accessible. 

"In the SGA office, people 
would come to us and say, 'I've 
been evicted. What do I do?'" said 
Marisa Brown, Consumer Rela- 
tions Board chairwoman and se- 
nior in human development and 
family studies. "Before, we didn't 
have any options for them." 

With the roommate notebook 

in the Union, options were more 
accessible to students than before. 

Kristi Harper, secretary in the 
Dean of Student Life Office, was 
in charge of the notebook for 2-1 / 
2 years before it was moved to the 
Union. She said use of the note- 
book was sporadic. 

"There's a big surge in summer 
and then at the end of the semes- 
ter," Harper said. "It's hard to 
keep track of. People just don't 
bother coming back to let you 
know how it worked out." 

To use the service, students in 
search of either a roommate or a 
place to live completed a two- 
page roommate-selection sheet. 

Questions ranged from when a 
roommate was needed to charac- 
teristics of the housing available, 
the cost of living there and the 
number of roommates desired. 

Changes were made in the se- 
lection sheet by the CRB, Brown 

said, to protect the privacy of those 
who used the service. 

"I didn't want anyone off the 
street to be able to come in and see 
who's using the notebook," 
Brown said. "The person who's 
looking through it must ask for 
the name and phone number." 

Brown said people were some- 
times reluctant to use the service. 

"I think people worry about 
what kind of people use this. I tell 
them, 'You've got the number. 
Why don't you call them?'" 

Tricia Nolfi, coordinator of the 
Office of Student Activities and 
Services, said changing the loca- 
tion of the service brought some 
changes in the focus of the CRB. 

"They've been looking at 
changing the CRB to an off-cam- 
pus service organization rather than 
just a consumer service," Nolfi 
said. "It seemed like a natural fit to 
have it in the Union."

Fraternity Forum 

students learn about greek life

fraternities the chance to spread 
the word about greek living.

Mike Parisi, 
Pi Kappa Alpha rush 

but to provide 
students a 
chance to learn 
about fraternity life, McRee said. 
"We encourage all individuals 
to look at a lot of different houses 
to get a better idea of what greek 
life is about," McRee said. 

Members from the fraternities 
provided basic information about 
activities and philanthropies they 
supported, their grade-point av- 
erage requirements and expenses. 
"They ask about the fraterni- 

ties in general and the fraternity 
system," said David Denning, 
Sigma Nu rush chairman and 
sophomore in pre-law. "Also, they 
ask about study hours and meal 

McRee, who helped start the 
forum, said the National Interfra- 
ternity Conference, which over- 
saw all IFCs, encouraged all cam- 
puses to have an informational 
rush forum. 

The Fraternity Forum, spon- 
sored by the Interfraternity Coun- 
cil, was started in fall 1 993, McRee 
said. During the first year, only 
one forum was organized. In its 
second year, two were organized, 
one during the fall and another 
during the All-University Open 
House in April. 

Fraternity participation was 
voluntary, but the majority of fra- 
ternities participated, McRee said. 
Plans included adding Hispanic 
and black greeks to the forums. 

"It's a great way to get your 
fraternity's name out to students. 
It's more important to the campus 
in general, not a certain house," 
Denning said. "It gets guys into 
the greek system and gets rid of 
stereotypes. It also helps get rid of 
some of the intimidation." 

Another important advantage 
of the forum, McRee said, was 
being able to educate non-greeks 
about the system. 

"Some students aren't very 

educated about fraternities, and 
some don't know anything at all. 
That's why they set the forum 
up," said Mike Parisi, Pi Kappa 
Alpha rush chairman andjunior in 
hotel and restaurant management. 
"It also gets boys on the border- 
line to sign because the guys who 
go to the forum who usually want 
to rush are in between wanting in 
a fraternity and not wanting in 

Some students were too timid 
to approach fraternities because of 
stereotypes, Denning said. 

"Sometimes we get a bad rap 
and are labeled with an 'Animal 
House' image because of a few 
bad incidents," he said. 

Even incidents that didn't oc- 
cur on K-State's campus affected 
the image of the greek system as a 
whole, he said. 

Jeff Gill,Theta Xi rush chair- 
man and sophomore in geology, 
said it was important to dispel 
these stereotypes. 

"It is important that people see 
past the fraternity image, that 
people can talk to us and see that 
we're nice guys," he said. 

The forums were invaluable 
for the information they provided, 
McRee said. 

"They can see the benefits of 
greek life," McRee said. "There 
are opportunities for leadership, 
ways to get involved and a chance 
to make friends for life."

students make campus walks safe 

by Tawnya Ernst and Wade Sisson 

hen students expressed con- 
cern about walking across 
campus after dark, men and 
women were there to light the 

Although women had been 
escorts for the various services at 
Haymaker, West, Ford, Putnam 
and Moore halls, this was the first 
year the escort services officially 
arranged teams consisting of a male 
escort and a female escort. 

West Hall had about 18 to 20 
women who volunteered their time. 

"It makes it a lot easier and 
more comfortable for the women 
being escorted than having some 
guy you don't know show up to 
walk you across campus," Scott 
Hagemeister, Haymaker escort 
service coordinator and sopho- 
more in sociology, said. 

Nearly all the students who 
called for the service were women, 
Hagemeister said. 

"It provides a comfort level for 
the women who use the service to 
have another woman walking with 
them," Michelle Black, West Hall 
director, said. "Generally, it's 
someone in the building that they 
already know, and it's comforting 
to recognize a familiar face." 

Escorts were available 24 hours, 
but if they were needed after mid- 
night, it was preferred that ar- 
rangements were made in advance, 
Black said. 

West provided about 20 to 30 
escorts during a week. 

"Mondays, Tuesdays and 
Wednesdays were the high times 
because of the large number of night 
classes on those days," Black said. 

Volunteers weren't allowed to 
carry weapons or escort anyone 
while intoxicated, she said. Es- 
corts were not to use the program 
to find dates. 

"It isn't a dating service," said 
Karla Gebhardt, chairwoman of 
West's escort program and sopho- 
more in psychology. "The men or 
women providing the escorts 
shouldn't ask who they are escort- 
ing out or ask those who are work- 
ing with them out. 

"It's not a social time. They're 
supposed to treat it like a job." 

As a safety precaution, Gebhardt 
said, escorts carried identification 
and a flashlight, and each escort 
had to check in and out so the 
residence-hall staff knew when to 
expect the escort to return. 

Providing safety was the pri- 

mary function of the escorts, 



"We don't 
want someone 
showing up try- 
ing to be a hero 
and throw 
themselves in 
front of an at- 
tacker. They're 
not the Secret 
said. "But 
we've never 
had anything 
happen that 
would warrant 
such a defense." 

Escort ser- 
vices were used 
more than the 
previous year, 
Black said. 

"The hall 


boards and halls 

are really pushing it," she said. 

"Why provide an opportunity for 

something bad to happen? You 

shouldn't take the risk if you don't 

have to." 

fVlost of the students who used 
the escort service were women. 
West Hall provided 20 to 30 es- 
corts each week. Mondays, 
Tuesdays and Wednesdays were 
peak hours for the service be- 
cause of the large number of 
night classes on those days, 
Michelle Black, West Hall direc- 
tor, said. (Photo by Cary

tenants' move delayed 

by Ashley Schmidt 

Rene Brooks, freshman in pre- 
journalism and mass communi- 
cations, was one of 30 students 
unable to move into the Chase 
Manhattan Apartments on time. 
Brooks had the option of 
breaking her contract or staying 
in a motel or with friends or 
family. (Photo by Craig Hacker) 

iving out of a suitcase may not 

have been ideal, but for students 

waiting to move into Chase 

Manhattan Apartments, it was the 

only option. 

Although the apartment com- 
plex was scheduled to be com- 
pleted by the time school began, 
about 30 stu- 
dents found 
without a home 
in August. 

"All future 
residents were 
sent letters in 
June, July and 
the first of Au- 
gust announc- 
ing that the

Deb Taylor, 
property man- 
ager of Chase 
said. "They 
were given the 
options to 
break their 
leases or to wait 
it out with us." 
The future 
residents could 
break their 
contracts and 
have their de- 
posits returned, 
stay with 

friends or rela- 
tives or stay at a 
hotel and pay 
the equivalent 
of their rent 
until the apart- 
ments were fin- 

Chase Man- 
hattan Apart- 
ments offered 
students rooms 

at the Best Western Continental 
Inn until complexes were com- 
pleted Sept. 14. 

"They told us the apartments 
would be ready by Sept. 1 , but we 
didn't end up moving in until the 
middle of September," Mike 
Neimann, junior in mechanical 
engineering, said. "It was a hassle 
because I didn't have a driver's 
license, and I had some 8:30 classes, 
while my roommate had 11:30 
classes. I ended up missing a lot of 
classes because I had no way to get 

Taylor said she believed a lot of 
frustration was caused by the fu- 
ture residents hoping their apart- 
ments would be finished Aug. 1. 

"We would all become greatly 
disappointed each time a new 
completion date came and went," 
Taylor said. 

Taylor said part of the reason 
for the delay was because after the 
summer flooding of 1993, con- 
struction workers and materials 
were in demand all over the Mid- 
west in summer 1994. 

Despite the inconvenience, 
Taylor said, many future residents 
were understanding about the 
delayed completion dates. 

"Others understood the impli- 
cations and decided that they 
wanted the security of having an 
available apartment when they 
returned to school," Taylor said. 

Many of the future residents 
stayed at the hotel, but Kathy 
Kippes, senior in elementary edu- 
cation, stayed with friends. 

"My friends wouldn't let me 
stay at the Best Western — they 
wanted me to stay with them," 
Kippes said. 

Despite the inconvenience, 
some residents still thought living 
out of a suitcase was worth it. 

"Chase is a nice place to live," 
Steve Toedter, junior in sociology, 
said. "It is conveniently located, 
and I think it was worth the wait."

humbs up. 

A simple gesture most stu- 
dents thought nothing of. 

But Suryadi Oentoeng thought 
it was offensive. 

Oentoeng, senior in manufac- 
turing systems engineering from 
Surbaya, Indonesia, was confused 
and offended after helping push 
another student's car that had be- 
come stuck in deep snow. 

"After we pushed him out, he 
turned his car around, and when 
he drove by, he gave us the 
thumbs-up sign," he said. "I was 

In Indonesia, a thumbs-up sign 
was the equivalent of flipping 
someone offin the United States, 
Oentoeng said. 

While his experience may have 
been unique, the culture shock 
Oentoeng said he felt was not 
uncommon for international stu- 
dents attending the University. 

Salvador Osorio, senior in mar- 
keting, said he was amazed at the 
amount of space in Kansas, com- 
pared with his home country. A 
native of Spain, Osorio went from 
living in a 1,500-person apart- 
ment building in downtown 
Madrid to a farm in Little River as 
part of a high-school exchange 
program in 1989. 

"The first thing I did is walk 
around the house and look for 
neighbors," he said. "It was like 
being in an ocean. In Madrid, all I 
could see was apartments." 

Despite the differences, Osorio 
chose to stay in Kansas. 

"I met some very interesting 
people, so I wanted to stay," he 
said. "They were friendly and 
made me feel at home." 

The friendly, relaxed atmo- 
sphere in Kansas was one reason 
Tali Cohen, graduate student in 
architecture, said she decided not 
to return to Tel Aviv, Israel, after 
she completed her bachelor's de- 
gree requirements. 

"Generally, the most impor- 

tant thing is that people are nice 
and polite here. I was impressed 
by that when I came," she said. "It 
was very nice to discover this rather 
than living in a tense situation like 
in Israel." 

After adapting to the time-con- 
scious culture in the United States, 
readjusting to the culture in Indo- 
nesia when visiting was difficult, 
Oentoeng said. 

"People at 
home are more 
relaxed. It's 
more organized 
here — every- 
thing is on a 
schedule," he 
said. "I was 
kind of sur- 
prised when I 
went back 
home, and I had 
to get adjusted 
to living there 

Osorio said 
he agreed. 

"I don't see 
my family the 
same way I used 
to. I now am 
able to see them 
from the out- 
side, and it is 
totally differ- 

Despite the 
cultural differ- 
ences between 
Spain and the 
United States, 
there were 
many parallels 
between the 
two countries, 
Osorio said. 

"I think 
there are more 
similarities than 

differences," he said. "My experi- 
ence has taught me that by going 
away from a culture, you can learn 
more about it than if you stay."

tems engineering, watches the San Diego Chargers 
take on the Pittsburg Steelers in the televised game 
that determines who will go to the Super Bowl. 
Oentoeng, who was from Indonesia, said the NFL 
had gained popularity there because of cable tele-

weekend travelers 

ot all K-State students hit the 
books on weekends. 
Some hit the road. 

"I go to Topeka most week- 
ends," Bill Stolte, junior in fisher- 
ies and wildlife biology, said. "I 
race bikes, and I have a couple of 
friends in Topeka, so I go there to 
train with them. 

"I'm not a big fan of Aggieville, 
so I don't need to stay here to go 
out on weekends." 

Long-distance relationships or 
family ties caused other students 
to leave campus. 

"I go to Lawrence to see my 
boyfriend or to see my mom in 
Wichita. I've probably only been 
here three weekends the whole 
semester," Marisa Brown, senior 
in human development and fam- 
ily studies, said. "I have a sister up 
here who's a freshman. She gets 
homesick. So, we take my car and 
go home." 

Although Brown didn't spend 
much time in Manhattan, she said 
she didn't think she missed out on 

"I've been here for four years. 
Going out gets old after four years, 
but I still go out sometimes on 
Thursday night," she said. "I'm 
still involved in campus, and I'm 
in a (sorority) house. After I'm on 

campus all week long, I need to 
get out of here." 

Stolte said he experienced some 
benefits from going home every 

"Ultimately, I'm saving 
money," he said. "I don't drive 
my car at all during the week. I 
spend a little more on gas traveling 
50 miles here, but I shop when 
I'm at home — so, my mom kind 
of helps me out." 

Brown said although her dad 
paid for her gas, other weekend 
expenses added up. 

"I always eat out in Lawrence, 
and it's expensive after three days in 
a row," Brown said. "I have to pay 
the toll each way every time, too. 
It's only 75 cents, but when you 
think about it, it really adds up." 

Michelle Baker, sophomore in 
journalism and mass communica- 
tions, said she went home to 
Wichita two or three times a 
month during the first semester of 
her freshman year. 

"I was a freshman, and I was 
homesick. I guess I was trying to 
adjust to school," Baker said. "But 
now I'm fine — I never go home." 

With high-school friends away 
at other colleges, the excitement 
of going home for the weekend 
soon dwindled, Baker said. Stay-

ing in Manhattan on weekends 
changed her opinion of K-State. 

"I like K-State a lot better than I 
did my first semester," she said. "I 
wish I would' ve 
stayed up at 
school more. I 
think I would've 
done better that 
first semester, 
and I think I 
would have 
liked K-State 

Unruh, sopho- 
more in psy- 
chology, used to 
leave every 
weekend to visit 
her boyfriend or 
her dad. 

"I used to 
spend a bundle 
on gas money. 
My grades are 
much better 
now because 
I'm more fo- 
cused on school. Plus, people here 
are always studying, so I feel like I 
should be, too," Unruh said. "I'm 
only here four years. I'm glad I 
decided to spend the time with 
my friends." 

"I like K-State a lot 
better than I did my 
first semester. I wish 
I would've stayed 
up at school more. I 
think I would've 
done better that first 
semester, and I think 
I would have liked 
K-State better."
