Cutbacks may be coming for P.E. department

By John Farish
Plainsman Staff writer
The emergence In the past week of an administrative proposal
recommending sharp cutbacks in funding for Auburn's department of
health, physical education and recreation has become a source of
controversy among School of Education members and at least one
group of Auburn students.
The proposed cutbacks are part of a series of overall University
cutbacks which will be presented to the board of trustees for approval
on Monday.
According to Dr. Taylor Littleton, Auburn's vice president for
Academic Affairs, the proposals by the administration would
eliminate jobs presently held by professors "who signed temporary
one-year contracts with the University."

Several sources within the physical education department have trying to get the proposal changed so teachers and courses would not

Trustees to consider
$20 tuition increase
By Peggy Wilhide

The Auburn Board of Trustees
will consider a $20 tuition
increase Monday which was
postponed during the last board
meeting this year.
"The proposed, was on the
agenda last session and was
postponed until Monday," said
Dr. Harold G r a n t , special
assistant to the president.

Funderburk said, "I don't want to
raise the tuition, but it looks like
we are going to have to."
The $20, if approved by the
trustees, would include the $8.50
students voted for last fall to fund
a new student activities building.
Another proposal that will be
discussed a t the
concerns a request to increase
student activity money through
the tuition hike, which was made
by SGA president Trey Ireland.
Last Monday, the SGA Budget
and Finance Committee was
forced to make severe cuts in
budget requests made by student
organizations. The organizations
requested $708,231, while the
committee was only allocated
$510,000 for student activities.
"We need at least $545,000 to
maintain the programs," said
Ireland, "we are not asking for
any better, we just want to keep
things going like they were last
The SGA president recommended that the administration
and the Board of Trustees give
the Budget and Finance Commit-

tee an extra $1.50 from the next

tuition increase in student fees.
Betsi Vogel, chairman of this
year's budget and finance committee, agreed. Vogel said that
the "extreme" cutting of budget
requests "reflects a need for
additional student activities fees
next year. I hope the administration and the board of trustees will
approve giving us an extra $1.50
from the next tuition increase for
student fees," she said.
"Our goal was $1.50," said
Ireland, "but we are obviously
not going to get that much."
However, Ireland did say that
the e x t r a $35,000 r e q u e s t e d
covered only the "bare necessities" needed to fund the programs.
"We felt that because of inflation, we were not able to give
organizations such as the UPC,
Glom, Plainsman and the Circle
adequate funds," he said. "We
had to cut back heavily on staff
salaries, a number of color pictures and pages."
Ireland cited recreational services as an example of an organization in which the money was not
spent as efficiently as it could be.
"Intramurals, which are part of
Recreational Services are and
should continue to be funded by

But Ireland added that he

Dr. Funderburk yet," he said.

In the race to replace Mayor Don Hayhurst, who has said he will not
run for re-election, three candidates have filed intent-to-run forms,
including two members of Auburn's faculty.
Michael E. Lisano, associate professor of zoology and entomology,
filed for candidacy on Tuesday, May 20, the first day of registration.
The other Auburn faculty member, Caine Campbell, associate dean of
the School of Arts and Sciences and professor of history and journalism

declared his candidacy on Tuesday, May 27. The third candidate is

Rev. James Michael Williams, who declared his candidacy on May 21.
Lisano, 37, said he decided to run for mayor because he has "been
concerned with the lack of cooperation and compliance with the
current government.
"There seems to be a lot of bickering between the legislative, judicial
and executive branches, the mayor and City Council," said Lisano.
Lisano said his platform would be run on "knowing the responsibility
of the office of mayor.

Nine suits filed against Hyatt House owner

By Abby Pettiss
Assistant Copy Editor
Nine former residents of the
Hyatt House apartments have
filed suits against owner David
W. Huffman over disputes involving the withholding of their
All nine people said Huffman
sent them bills for damages to
their apartment instead of returning their deposits. They said the
original deposits had been subtracted from the damages
Huffman claimed they wereresponsible for.
Miriam Halen, an accounting
major at Auburn, said she filed
suit in small claims court at the
Lee County courthouse on Nov. 8,
1979, but Huffman wasn't served
notice of the suit until May 21.
Halen said Huffman never
acknowledged the mail containing the notice and because he
lived in another state, the court
had to wait until Huffman came to
Auburn. Huffman has 14 days to
reply after receiving notice.
After Halen received the bill
that said she owed $15 more than
the deposit Huffman had kept, she
said she pressed him for a copy
of the previous resident's check-

list. Halen said Huffman sent her

$70 of her deposit, saying there
had been a mistake in the assessment.
Halen is graduating this
quarter, but said she does not
plan to drop her case. "I'm going

"and no one can really prove

to come back. My claim is only
for $60. I'm fighting for the
principle." If necessary, Halen
said she will file another claim for
travel expenses back to Auburn.
Another former resident, Glenn
A. Anderson, did take Huffman to
court May 21 and won $72 in
addition to the $10 court cost.
Anderson said Huffman had'kept
his deposit and billed him for
small damages that he said were
not justified.

They said their lawyer told them

they would probably lose in small
claims court, but if they appealed, they stood a good chance of
getting their money back.
Matthews said he felt bad about
settling out of court for $75, but
his roomate Lee needed the
money then.
Lee said the problem came
from subleasing the apartment.
"They check the apartment and

Mary Born, another of the
former residents who filed a
claim, Jan. 4, 1980, said her case
hasn't been settled yet.

The address the Hyatt House

manager gave her was incorrect,
Born said, because the notices
were returned. The court served
the notice to Huffman on May 21
when he was in Auburn.

Born said when she sublet her

apartment for the summer the
manager led her to believe she
wouldn't be responsible for any of
the subleaser's damages. She
said he inspected her apartment
at that time and told her he would
take care of it. In September she

Wendy Peck, Huffman's secretary in charge of Hyatt House,
said the problem occurs when
students don't read their lease.
The 12-month lease stipulates that
the tenants are equally responsible for any damages that they or
their subleaser might commit,
she said.
Peck said the apartments are
inspected at the end of the lease
period in August. She said that
most students leave early and
aren't present when the apartment is inspected.
Huffman files claims against
students for back rent only, Peck
said. They win 95 percent of their
cases, she said.

Throughout his young administration,
Hanly Funderburk has talked a lot about
cutting programs he feels constitute a waste
,of Auburn's tight monetary resources.
Last week the talk turned into action as
the adminstration announced a proposal to
jcourses, fire part time P.E. instructors and
ileave the decision or whether to require
istudents to take P.E. instructors and leave
ithe decision of whether to require students
fto take P.E. courses up to individual
Funderburk will take his proposal to the
;board of trustees Monday, at which time
[the board will discuss and possibly approve
fthe changes.
At this point, Funderburk's exact reasoning for the proposal is not clear. University
:officials are not saying how much money
[will be saved through the cutbacks or where
[that money will go.
Presumably, however, the new president
jfeels the courses being cancelled (which
jnclude all dance classes, beginners swimling, volleyball and fencing) are simply

not worth the expenditure needed to keep

them going.
What is clear is that the proposal marks a
turning point for Auburn University. That
turning point is away from the philosophy
of expansion to include a wider and wider
variety of course offerings and activities, the
kind of philosophy that fostered dance
Such a turning point poses the difficult
question of the proper direction for
Alabama's largest state funded institution
of higher learning.
We urge the trustees to take all sides of
the issue into intense consideration A few
less P.E. courses may not make much
difference, but actions taken on this
proposal will set a precedent for years to
Concerned students, and there are
apparently many, should attend Monday's
board meeting, discover what the reasons
behind the proposal are and voice their

Enemies, Heads, but still no dates

There are certain fallacies every editor
accepts as gospel.
The editor believes: students are euridite
enough to prefer a faculty senate story to
Doonesbury, that editorials can change
someone's opinion and that a column summarizing his wonderful year as editor will
interest someone more than home movies.
Luckily, I do not suffer under the latter
misconception. Unfortunately, I also do not
have anything else to write about.
I had many ideas on how to write my
farewell column as editor. The first idea was
to try and make it useful.
You know the kind: "I'd like to thank the
political science department for letting me
graduate without clearing up all my incompletes or writing a thesis, and I'd like to
thank the library for not making me pay the
$2.45 I own on fines, and campus security for
letting me keep my "A" zone sticker."
Somehow I just didn't think that that
would work.
Then I came up with the idea of using my
column to try and get a date, but I know from
experience that that wouldn't work.
I finally decided to write the traditional
column about my life and what The Plainsman
has meant to me.
I was born in a small log cabin (well maybe
not quite that traditional).
I took office after winning a landslide
victory. Running unopposed helped.
Since I had seen "Citizen Kane" four times,
I realized an editor should start out with high
and worthy goals.

Kane's were to stand up for truth and

protect the little guy. My goals were even
loftier"Stand up for truth, protect the little
guy and get a date."
As any reader who has been bored enough
to read my columns on a steady basis realizes
I did not exactly succeed in this final goal, but
at least I won't be muttering the name of my
pet sled when I die.
During my one year reign, which some
former members of the staff have dubbed a
dictatorship in absentia, (yes, that's how they
became former members) I was amazed at
what I gained from being Plainsman editor
i.e. countless enemies.
It was amazing. One fraternity "wanted to
punch my face in" because a story in the
April Fools edition announced their house
had gone to pot.
The football team became mad at me for a
series I wrote on athletes and academics.
They had some valid reason since I did not
point out in my stories that most of the
violations I found occurred in athletic
programs other than football.

[Looking back
The year that we review for you with a
sspecial section today was one of transition
por Auburn University.
Buildings changed the face of the
|campus, the City Council put itself in
fopposition to students, and higher funding
rwas achieved, but the biggest transition of
a l l was the retirement of Harry Philpott as
^president and the election of his successor
jjHanly Funderburk.
The presidential search story was not
[always a pleasant one for us to report on.
iFrom the beginning, Gov. Fob James
^appointed a search committee with no
istudents or faculty members on it, controIversy surrounded the process.
Many people would have favored a
[presidency of Steven Sample rather than of
Funderburk. Many feel, with some justification, that Sample was put out of the race by


Besides validity they also had height, weight and strength. I had weight. I ran in
panic from anything in a letter jacket.
Added to this list was one girl in the J
theatre department who I canned in a review ~
by saying her voice proved that some
actresses, like some children, should be seen t
and not heard.
There were also a few trustees, one :
Auburn City Council and certain administrators that did not exactly seem won over by
my charm. In fact, there were times when I
believed if a popularity poll were taken my
name would be found somewhere between
Fob James' and Bear Bryant's.
Of course there were also a few people who
loved my writing and everything I did with
the paper. To this day I'm glad I sent my
family that subscription.
But enemies were not the only thing I got
out of editing The Plainsman. Through The
Plainsman I was able to meet some truly
remarkable Auburn administrators such as
Sen. Bob Harris, Harry Philpott and Dean
Katharine Cater, and some truly dedicated
students, such as Ron Taylor, Clay Howell,
Mark Sparkman and even some attractive
girls. They wouldn't give me their names.
I was also given a shot to actually bring
about some changes through what I think
might just have been the best editorial pages
in the South, and work with one of the finest
staffs ever to put out The Plainsman. (Thi-y
might argue about whether I actually worked
or not).
Now if I could only get that date.

political consideration.
The new president came to Auburn in an
uncomfortable situation; many students
and faculty expressed ill feelings about the
process by which he had been appointed.
But Funderburk has nonetheless steamed
right ahead with his plans for the University
trying to throw aside negative attitudes. He
has done an admirable job in procuring
funds for Auburn, and his pledge to spend
them as thrifitily as possible is encouraging.
W e support Funderburk in his effort to
get the negative feelings produced by the
search behind us and get on with the
business at hand.
W e must not forget the events of the
search, for if we do, they may be repeated.
But by the same token, we cannot blame
Funderburk for what happened during the
search for he is only its product.

Letters policy
Letters are the pulse of a newspaper; a
large number of letters to the editor are the
sign of a healthy, well-read newspaper. The
Plainsman has been lucky in that respect
this year. Each week, concerned readers
have expressed a variety of opinions
regarding issues of interest to the University
Increasingly, however, The Plainsman
if has received growing numbers of letters
f bearing no identification other than some
cryptic message such as " A concerned
s t u d e n t , " etc. We've printed some of those
letters, even though in some cases there

appeared to be no rationale for the lack of

Effective with the first paper of Summer
quarter and continuing into the Fall, The
Plainsman will print no letter not bearing
its author's name and telephone number.
Any requests for anonymity wili be
considered by the editor.
The deadline for letters to the editor will
remain 5 p . m . Monday, and all letters
should be typed and double spaced.
Handwritten letters received after the
deadline will receive lower priority for space
in that week's paper.

So long for now

As the summer quickly approaches and
we finally put the last issue of this year's
Plainsman to rest, many of us on the staff
will spend the next three months in the
happy, Plainsman-free pursuit of personal
pleasure, only to return in the fall to begin
yet another year of blissful tedium in our
humble office.
But some of the staff, with this final
issue, say their last good-bye to the joys of
being a Plainsman staffer.
Assistant News Editor Tim Hunt will
head up to Birmingham in the fall to attend
Cumberland Law School.
Sports Editor Ed Moore will begin his
career in Huntsville working for the
Huntsville Times.

Associate Editor-world traveller Dave

will continue his
endeavors in the hopes of finishing his
education in the near future.
Features editor Rosey Evans will enter the
real world hoping to find a job in the field
of journalism.
Editor Rick Harmon will attempt to
complete his graduate studies so that he too
may enter the real world soon.

Volcano no match for H-bombs

Mount St. Helens erupts and the nation
once again stands in awe of nature's power
and violence.
The Washington state volcano killed at
least 30 people, blew down 150 square miles
of pine trees like toothpicks and spewed some
1.5 cubic miles of rocks and dirt into the
atmosphere and onto much of the nation.
Yet St. Helens' eruption wasn't all that
spectacular as volcano eruptions goa mediocre display, say the experts.
Yes, it was hundreds of times more
powerful than the atomic bomb that devastated Hiroshima, but so are many hydrogen
bombs stockpiled today by the Soviets and
In fact, average volcano eruptions don't
hold a candle to the destructive power of
modern nuclear weapons. Much of St. Helens'
blast and heat shot upward, undoubtedly
saving many more lives.
Modern H-bombs detonate a few thousand
feet above a target, exposing populations
below to the maximum blast and heat
And while St. Helens showered tons of
fallout and debris on the Northwest and most
of the nation, the fallout itself doesn't
killit's not intensely radioactive.
By contrast, a primitive H-bomb detonated
1954 by America spread its fallout over
7,000 square miles, an area larger than some
small states.
The H-bomb's fallout kills.
H-bombs also have it over volcanos with
their accuracy and number. Volcanos can't
be dropped on targets with an accuracy of a
hundred yards or so. Nuclear weapons can.
Finally, there just aren't that many
volcanoes around to" "blowupmaybe 600

The shuttling would confuse the Soviets,
and if they tried to knock out MX missiles
before they launched, it would cost them 24
warheads to destroy one missile for sure.
Neat. Nobody notices, however, that
America could blow up its own land-based
missiles right now and still have enough
warheads to destroy Russia with thousands
of St. Helens.
The MX supposedly would allow America
not to fire its missiles, even when Soviet
missiles were blowing up our missile silos on
land, and still have a few ICBM's left to fire
back after a few hours or days.
But why wouldn't America just fire its
ICBM's before any Soviet nuclear strike blew
them up? Pentagon officials skim over that
question and say they want other options
besides the "shoot it or lose it" scheme.
Yet warning the Soviets that American
ICBM's would be launched before Soviet


warheads destroyed them would be the most

effective deterrent possible.
America's Minuteman ICBM force will
indeed be vulnerable to a Soviet first strike
in a few years, but only if they aren't fired
and America allows Soviet warheads to blow
them up. That doesn't make too much sense.
Neither does spending $60 billion for the
few thousand volcanos deliverable by the MX
missile system.
Volcanos do have it over H-bombs in one
big wayvolcanos can't be dismantled and
destroyedmankind can't put limits on the
number of volcanos.
Men can limit or destroy some or all of the
world's nuclear weapons, however. Men
could eliminate all the new, better-killing
volcanos he has created and avoid a possible
hell-on-earth doomsday.
But that would endanger national security,
and one side can't trust the other to really
destroy its weapons. We can make a better
volcano, but maybe mankind isn't so advanced and civilized after all.
Nature rains down death and destruction
with a mediocre volcano in Washington, and
the nation stands stunned. Mankind holds
tens of thousands of killer volcanos in its
arsenals, and few people get too upset about
So it goes, and so it all might stop.

Harmon's act impossible to follow

On page 231 of the 1975 Glomerata, in the
middle of the Plainsman section, a short,
chubby kid looking to be about 12 years old
can be seen peeking out from behind older
members of that years' sports staff.
That same chubby face, later obscured by a
beard, has or should have appeared in the
Glomerata's Plainsman section roughly five
times (no one is quite sure just how long it's
been around). And every time, the crazy look
in the eyes of that face gets crazier.
Anyone who knows Rick Harmon only

naturally assumes the guy is definitely weird.
Anyone who knows Rick personally knows

That question returned to haunt me several
times that first year, while family and friends
alike assured me graduation was definitely
questionable. They had their reasons.
Take for instance the first night in Auburn
when the police officer stopped several of us
walking downtown to ask why we were
drinking beer in public and while under the
legal age in Alabama. "We're from Florida," I
said. "Everything's legal in Florida."
"Hunt," my roommate said, "you'll never

And then there was that night I called for
my first college date. The girl in my calculus

a play such as "The Shadow Box," you do not

go for the "laughs',' you go for the message.
Despite the fact that some of the language
may have been offensive to some members of
the audience, hopefully they were able to
overlook the playwrights use of "vulgar"
language and were able to appreciate the
efforts of the actors to portray the roles of
the characters in the light in which the
author intended them to be playedwhich
we might add, the actors of this particular
cast did extremely well.
If you insist on being "hung up" on the type
of language the author uses to convey his
message, how then can you totally understand the real message the author has
intended for his audiences?

Our main point here is, that The Plainsman

boasts itself as being a quality student
newspaper. If this is really the case; there
should be evidence of this in each of the
articles written by its staffwriters.
A good critique should be based on the
critic's knowledge of theatre as a dramatic
form and how well the play performs its
intended dramatic function. The critique of
"The Shadow Box" carried in your May 22,
1980 edition was obviously based on your
staffwriter's notion of what simply appealed
to, or rather, offended her personally.
We are surprised that a paper of your
repute would not take something of such
importance more seriously.

who was splitting the Republican party.
With his withdrawal, Bush can now begin
the process of burying the hatchet with
Reagan and making his bid to become his
running mate.
If Reagan were to choose Bush, the Texan
would be Reagan's natural successor to the
presidency. Because of Reagan's advanced
age, complications could well arise that would
force Bush to run in 1984.
If a Reagan-Bush ticket lost in November,
Bush would still be perceived as a strong
candidate who could get along with both the
conservative Reagan and the modern
Rockefeller factions within the party.
Sen. Howard Baker stands in much the
same position as Bush, with much to gain as a
vice presidential candidate.
Baker is probably the most logical choice
for Reagan. He has a Washington-based
prestige that Reagan lacks, and his name on
the ticket could garner some southern

states (Missouri, Texas) into the Republican

I'm glad to see the administration waking
up. You always hear how much money the

athletic department, must be making from
football games, etc., but I've never seen the

It is nice to be in shape, to understand the

The university system is here to provide

What the Bible is saying is that when men

and women who are heterosexual turn to
homosexual activities for the fun of it, there
is a problem.
This is the message we derive from
Romans 1:26-27. And this is in contrast to the
true spirit of love expressed between any
two people regardless of sexuality.

To the Auburn University Student Body:

The following is the quarterly financial
report concerning the eleven Student Activity Fee Projects for the fiscal year October 1,
1979September 31,1980.
The Student Government Association was
allocated $40,660 and has spent $32,924.18 to
date or 81 percent, leaving a $7,735.82
balance with a total income of $7,265.61.

I only hope that Mr. Bradberry's incorrect

interpretation of Biblical material and the
lack of Christian love he expressed to his
fellow brothers will not widen the gap
existing between all lost people, homosexual
and heterosexual, and the beauty and peace
of a personal relationship with Christ.
A Real Christian

Non-acceptance the real problem

Editor, The Plainsman,
As a member of Auburn's gay community,
I feel it is time to express my opinion.
Whether we are accepted by the
community or not doesn't really matter to
me. We have always been here and we
always will be.
I have gay and lesbian friends in all majors
and in all professions, students on and off
campus, in fraternities, in sororities, as
professors and even some local citizens.
As long as I have these friends, I don't

The questions about Kennedy's personal
past, however, may not play so strong a
negative role for the senator in 1984 as they
have this year. As columnist Ernest Ferguson points out, reporting about Chappaquid- j

The obvious opponent for Kennedy in 1984
will be Carter heir apparent (thus heir to the

Perceived as more moderate than Kennedy
as well as an activist as vice president,
Mondale could very well be a powerful
democratic candidate.
These predictions depend highly on the
outcome of this year's campaign. Reagan may
not pick either Bush or Baker, and if he wins
and illness does not hamper his ability to
serve a second term, he would be in the
driver's seat in 1984.
But I do not believe Reagan is strong
enough to beat Carter. Even his vice
presidential choice may not be able to help
him overcome his natural tendency to
alienate moderates, America's largest voting
In addition, Carter is a brilliant campaigner who knows how to use the powers of the
incumbency. If he didn't, he would not have
been able to defeat as formidable an
opponent as the inheritor to the Camelot
. If Carter wins, it would probably mean a
Mondale and Kennedy head-to-head battle in
1984 for the Democrats. The Republicans
would probably have either Bush or Baker,
depending on which gets the vice presidential
nod, as their only candidate.
It ought to be a fantistic race from there,
wonder if big brothers will be watching.

Jesus Christ as lord and savior.
As a Christian I have long known the hope
expressed in John 3:16 (TEV)"For God loved
the world so much that he have his only Son
so that anyone who believes in him shall not
perish but have eternal life."
Futhermore, I don't feel that anyone is
responsible for their sexual preference. Any
number of complex factors is responsible for
a person to become homosexual. No one
decides one day to become homosexual and
joins in league with the devil to try to bring
the downfall of the country.
Mr. Bradberry's letter expressed the
theme that the Bible is quite inhumanely
against homosexuality. I'm glad to say that

Readers dispute review of 'The Shadow Box'

Editor, The Plainsman:
We feel the necessity to dispute Tammy
Kincaid's review of the theatre department's
latest production, "The Shadow Box" by
Michael Cristofer.
We are not complaining, nor, we must add,
are the members of the cast, that critisism
was offered. As we all know, criticism and
feedback are essential in order to ultimately
reach your optimum level of performance, no
matter what your field might be.
Our point is that the criticism be based on
legitimate and justifiable facts. We would
venture to guess that your staffwriter had
never critiqued a play before on the basis of
the critique that was offered.
Reviewing a play, no matter whether it be
on a Broadway stage or a University stage in
Auburn, Ala., is no easy task. First of all
some understanding of theatre as a performing art is essential. If you wish to critique
something it is always best to know
something about which you are critiquing.
Secondly, a knowledge of the play you are
critiquing would be advised; how can
something you haven't read, thought about,
studied, researched or considered in an
artistic vein be criticized?
It was obvious to us, both students of the
art, that your staffwriter had no working
knowledge of theatre on which to base her
First of all, the article states that "The play
itself does not get progressively funnier
because the inserted humor is basically the
samecrude." The playwright did not intend
for the play to get "progressively funnier!'
The play is a drama, the subject with which it
deals is a dramatic onedeath. We presume
that your staffwriter does not look at death
as funny.
Secondly, the article states that, "All of the
actors used discreet language to express
hemselves and less could have been inserted
,and the same meaning would have prevailed." Our question to your staffwriter is,
would you change a painter's work if it
offended you?
Artists of every genre express themselves
and their points of view in the ways in which
they feel will be most effective on the
receiver. When you go to the theatre to view

I also think it is rather sad that when our
straight friends are seen with us, they are
often found "guilty by association." I have as
many straight friends (male and female) as I

Fortunately, they feel like I do where other
people's attitudes are concerned. I simply
wish more people could feel like they do.

Department not consulted on

physical education cutbacks
Editor, The Plainsman,
Because of Dr. Funderburk's latest attempt to reduce the University budget,
physical education classes have been eliminated. They include: swimming for nonswimmers, weight control, all dance classes,
jogging for fitness, fencing, judo, bowling and

The requirement of three credits of

physical education for incoming freshmen
was also dropped. These actions by Dr.
Funderburk were taken without consulting
with the physical education department.
Editors note: This letter has been circulated
in the form of a petition, and was delivered to
The Plainsman with 50 signatures.

This action has greatly reduced the

selection for the 11,000 students who take
physical education classes every year.

Humanism, fads lead to amorality

Visitors would benefit

from outdoor directory
Editor, The Plainsman:
Auburn University visitors and new
students have a difficult time orienting
themselves with relation to the college's
buildings and areas of activities.
I believe everyone has a hard time learning
how to get around a new town or campus;
however, several campuses such as Virginia
Polytechnic Institute, State University and
Clemson University have built what I call
outdoor directories.
I visited VPI and SU several weeks ago and
noticed these outdoor directories on the
outskirts of town and one near the center of
the college. I believe such an addition to
Auburn University would be beneficial in

that it would reduce confusion and would

give a positive impression to students and
The directory would consist of a large map
including all campus buildings and a key
listing the buildings names in alphabetical
order. The key would give each building a
number and its location on the map's grid.
The map would also give the viewer's
location with respect to the campus and
major roads. I left Clemson, VPI and SU
favorably impressed by both campuses'
physical appearance and by the thought that
their administration and student body was
concerned enough to help new students and
visitors around their campuses.

Tips on buying and selling textbooks that

could save you $ $ $ $
Today's emphasis is on getting the most out of the shrinking dollar. The following
facts and suggestions are intended to inform the students and help them understand
book buying and selling. Our main goal is to serve the needs of the campus

.. New textbooks are bought from publishers (who establish the retail price) at a small
discount from the retail price. The University Bookstore must pay the freight or
postage charges, usually about 6 percent, for the books to be shipped to the store. If
the course is dropped or the professor does not use the book, the University
Bookstore must pay the freight charges, another 5 percent, to regum these books to
the publisher. From the remainder of the discount, the University Bookstore must pay
its overhead expenses.

.. Used books are bought from companies who specialize in handling used books and
from students. The University Bookstore buys books from students at 50 percent of
the NEW BOOK price, if the book will be used during the coming quarter, if we do not
have sufficient quantities for anticipated enrollment, and if it is the current edition.
We also buy books for wholesale companies if they are discontinued. The company
sets the prices we may pay for them.
. .So that you will obtain the most money for your books, the University Bookstore
offers the following suggestions:
Never rely on other students to tell you what books arerequired.The best source is
the instructor and the second is the textbook lists furnished the bookstore by the
Attend your first class meeting before buying your book. Refunds will be made only if
you drop the course and have course drop slip and cash register receipt for the book.
Take care of your books. Missing pages, or water soaked pages make a book
worthless. Crib notes do not affect the price.
Do not write or make any marks in the new books until you are certain you will
complete the course. No refunds can be made without books in original condition.
Sell your books as soon as you are confinced the book is no longer needed. Never
accept any price for a stack of books. Get a price for each book you sell. Our buyers
have been instructed to give you a price for each book.
We suggest you check other book store prices and then the University Bookstore
prices before selling your books.
Never attempt to sell a stolen book. This sounds trite...we do not recommend
stealing property for any reason...but here are the facts. Occasionally a student will
steal a book and attempt to sell it. The bookstores maintain open communication
between themselves, with the students, the University Police and school officials. A
list of stolen titles Is kept at the book buying counters in each store. The risks far
outweigh the small monetary gain. Is it really worth it?
Never accept any price for a stack of books. Get a price for each book you sell.
If your books are stolen, notify each bookstore giving your name and the author and
title of the book immediately. We will do our best to help you locate your books.

Buy Used books when possible.

Example: New Texbook sells for w
We buy used book for


We Sell used book for



We will buy back for *


This means you have used the book for $2.50 or 25 percent of the new book price.

Organizations help fund ERV

By JoBeth McDaniel
Plansman Staff writer
Auburn will soon have an
E m e r g e n c y R.escue Vehicle
thanks to several campus and
community organizations.
Council, Panhellenic, and A-Club
have already contributed approximately $3,300, and more money
pledged by individual sororities.
The rescue vehicle, which will
be kept by the Auburn Fire
Department, will be a paramedic
unit that will bring necessary
equipment to the scene of an
accident to stablize a victim's
condition until an ambulance
"The rescue vehicle won't
transport a victim to the hospital," explained Dee Manning,
Auburn's Emergency Medical
SJeirylce director. "It will be
machines and radio communciations with area hospitals. It will
be a lot like the unit in the old
television show 'Emergency.' "
The Emergency Vehicle Drive
was initiated and is sponsored by
Commerce. "We felt that Auburn
needed a unit like this and we
didn't want to wait two or three
years until the city could fit it in
the budget," said Ted Wilson, one
of the community chairmen for
the drive.
"The students' response and
cooperation has been outstanding," Wilson said. "We didn't
know what to expect when we

Wilson said he had also "heard of other petitions being circulated"
but he did not know how they were doing. His petition as vf Wednesday
had 50 signatures.
"No one likes reduction, but our current financial situation requires
it," Littleton said. He emphasized "these cuts are only a part of a
larger whole and they were a matter of study for weeks."
According to Littleton, Auburn
Hanly Funderburk
"had worked on the cuts with some of the deans for a matter of
weeks," and made a decision "only after much consideration."
Some criticism has been received on the proposed cuts concerning a
possible "softening on athletics" by the administration.
Littleton said the cutbacks in the physical education department
were "not a sign of the administration de-emphasizir.g athletic
programs." These cutbacks in physical education have "nothing to do
with athletics," he said.
Some of the coaches at Auburn have expressed a fear that losing
certain classes could cost them teaching jobs, a major source of
income for many of them.
Littleton disagreed, saying "there would be no salary cuts" within
the departments and the administration "doesn't plan on making any
cuts in salaries:'We won't do something like that," said Littleton.

'Up With People' sells brotherhood, peace

By Kathy Stump
Plainsman Staf fwriter
Say "Up With People" to Marti
or Jodi NeSmith and they'll start
into a nonstop commercial with a
testimonial that could beat even
the long-trusted Mrs. Olsen hands
down in its sincerity and conviction.
Their product, " U p With
People," is a team that travels
internationally performing
musical shows and selling the
"Up With People" philosophy:
brotherhood and peace between
"We don't try to promote an
unrealistic world peace," said
Marti. "If we can make people
happy, that's a start."
And it looks like people may be
buying it. Communist China invited "Up With People" to perform in their country last year.
"We're seeing results," Marti
said with satisfaction. "We're
breaking down the barriers of
communication. It makes it worth
Marti, a junior in elementary
education, traveled with the "Up
With People" European cast after
her senior year of high school,
performing in 155 2-hour shows
and 297 assemblies. She radiates
the kind of enthusiasm that, if
turned into neutron and protons,
could make her a walking Three
file Island. But she bristles at
the suggestion that it was a break
in her education.
"It's not by any means a year
off,"she said. "It's an education.
You learn a lot about people by
being with the cast and families
you stay with. You do shows for
hospitals, mental institutions,
prisons...it's irritating to hear
someone say, 'Oh so you're taking
* year off?' "
Nineteen-year-old Jodi is
lollowing in her sister's footsteps,
also sidestepping a year of school
I to travel with "Up With People"
beginning in July.
"I want to learn to be adaptive.
I mean, I accept people and
things a lot now, but I want to
learn to let it not bother m e , " said
Jodi, who will learn the lesson
quickly since cast members stay
only in private homes and act as
members of their host families
while they are there.
"There are no restrictions on
who keeps you as long as there's a
shower and a place to sleep-and
the place is clean. People have
slept on the floor," Jodi explained.
But Marti, whose apartment is
across the pool from Jodi's,
stands amid what seems like
Grand Central Station, the phone
to one ear, wishing her roommate
goodbye, and motioning to two
more people to come in and sit
down, while three people already
occupy her couch and two chairs.
The housing accommodations,
however modest they may have
been, didn't seem to come to
Marti's mind when she said, "It's
one thing to go to Europe, but we
got to live with families," emphasizing "live" with an emphatic gesture. "We didn't just
see tourist spots...in fact we saw
very few tourist spots."
Marti is a peppy,
barely I
girl whose small
frame belies her outgoing personality and influence on her younger
sister who stands a head above
her. Jodi is excited about her
upcoming adventure with the five
80 to 100-member casts because
she saw what it did for Marti.
When she came home, "Marti
had changed drastically. She'd
broadened...she came back a lot
more open to a lot of things," Jodi

And Marti concurred. After

traveling 24,455 miles (including
interoceanic flights) in 259 hours
and staying with 77 different host
families in 78 different cities,
Marti has good reason to say that
she has more of a world perspective on life and has learned to find
the good in people.
"They may not be like you.
They aren't like you. But that's
o k a y , " - M a r t i said. " I can go
anywhere and know somebody."
For example, when the T-shirt
company she, a s c a m p a i g n
manager, had lined up to print the
shirts for her off-campus senatorial candidate fell through,
Marti knew right where to go. She
called a friend in New York, told
him her predicament and he did a
rush job on them, getting them to
Auburn on time and at a discount.
"That's a real highlight...a benefit of knowing people all over,"
Marti admitted.
Though it looks like she would
have an " i n " because Marti has
traveled with the group, Jodi said
that acceptance is strictly on

: : ; ;

interview. Though the cast does

the interviewing and has the most
input into who joins and who will
have to settle for being an avid
fan, it is not surprising that
siblings frequently follow one
If there's one thing Marti is
convinced of after her "Up With
People" travel is that "You can
travel," she said, emphasizing
the word can. She speaks with
such fervor and animation that it
almost sounds like an admonishment. She repeats herself and
when she thinks this revelation
has permeated the skull, she
continues, "It opened my mind to
the things you can do."
Marti told how she recently
flew to Michigan and surprised
friends made through "Up With
People" by showing up at their
wedding unexpectedly. She then
flew to Texas and Nashville to
visit more friends before returning home.
"I didn't have the money, but I
did it. 1 worked and did without. '
People said, 'Marti, you don't
have a car,' but it was more

important for me to surprise my

friends in Michigan at their
wedding. It's worth doing without. You don't think you have the
money, but you just go."
This nouveau-cosmopolitan
Marti was once a classic case of
little-girl-goes-to-big-city, only in
her case, big-world. "If I hadn't
gone with "Up With People" I
probably would have stayed in
Birmingham the rest of my life,"
Marti says, placing her hands
parallel and inches apart to indicate the restricted avenues of
one's life if he never leaves his
"The more people I meet, the
more enriched I a m , " she said.
If convictions and philosophies
like these make the prospect of
touring this summer sound unequivocally exciting, Jodi still has
her reservations. "Right now I
have my own checking account,
my own apartment. But next year
everything I have will be "Up
With People's."
The "Up With People" theme
song and "What Color is God's
Skin" have been part of each

show since the cast of 18 to

25-year-olds first performed in
1968. Also standard fare for this
Arizona based o r g a n i z a t i o n ' s
show is an international medley,
performed in native costumes,
and an oldie-but-goodie medley,
with new songs being written and
added to the performances every
"We demonstrate what we say
in the songs," said Marti, "because we're a bunch of people
thrown together."
But there is a price to pay for all

of this getting-to-know-your
fellowman-better kind of talk
Like their theme song says
"freedom isn't free, you've got tc
pay a price, you've got to sacri
fice, for your liberty," so yoi
must also pay - $4,800 plus per
sonal expenses - for this new
self-awareness and new work
Considering the travel, room
and board, the price may b
small. But that's a lot of monej
for a young person to have t<

Two Stroke and Swanee went off to see the

"Rowdy," said Auburn head
swim coach Richard Quick, "is an

Quick. "Yet, he is also a person-

were many Auburn Ail-Americans

Gaines set his 100-yard and
200-yard marks in late March at
the NCAA Championships at
Cambridge, Mass. in respective
clockings of 43,16 and 1:34.57.
Auburn finished fifth in the team
standings and Gaines scored 60 of
the squad's 168 points.
In the same meet, Gaines swam
on the winning 400-yard and 800yard relay teams.

Gaines' 100-meter record, 49.61,

came April 9 during the AAU
Indoor Championships.
Last year, James Walker was

Did Auburn violate any NCAA

regulations in the basketball
recruiting of Vince Martello? A
Florida newspaper says maybe,
but Auburn head coach Sonny
Smith says no.
An article in the Pensacola
raised this question. There are
three schools involved: Auburn,
F l o r i d a and Florida State.
Auburn signed Martello, FSU
reportedly had a verbal commitment from Martello that he would
sign with them and Florida cried
foul when it was over.
Smith is quoted in the NewsJournal saying, "You wouldn't
think two schools at the bottom of
the league standings would have
anything to fight about, would
you ?'' But they do.
The article said Martello was
going to FSU and had given the
school a verbal commitment that
he would sign. However, Martello
was still planning to visit the
Auburn campus. After the visit,
he decided to sign with the Tigers.
Florida, who one source said
wasn't even recruiting Martello
and one who said it was, then
claimed foul on Auburn.
Smith said the verbal commitment is something the papers
drew up. "This was just speculation on the part of the paper."
The paper quoted Smith as
saying the recruiting of Martello
"became a very competitive
situation. One school kept it
clean, one didn't. One school
insinuated many things."
Smith said Florida State insinuated Auburn's r e c r u i t i n g
wasn't clean. "There was nothing
illegal done on our part."
Rumors said that Smith and
new Florida head coach Norm
Sloan had words while at the

Southeastern Conference meeting

this past week end in Palm
Beach, Fla. The News-Journal
quoted Smith as saying: "All I
will say is there was some mudslinging going on. What he
(Sloan) should be concerned with
is his own recruiting and his own
program. This is not a league that
you can come into throwing
Smith said he had talked with
Sloan over the phone while in
Florida. "We had a strong phone
conversation. The reason it was
strong was because I told him
that I had heard he had turned us
in to the NCAA. He denied that he
had taken part in anything
against us. All I have is his
According to a source close to
Florida, it was rumored that
Sloan had filed a complaint with
the NCAA. The source added that
it may not be just a rumor.
"Norm has made it clear that
he will turn anyone he catches
cheating in to the NCAA," the
source said. "He and Athletic
Director Bill Carr feel they have a
cut-and-dried case. Whether or
not it's been turned in to the
NCAA, I don't know."
Smith disagreed with the
Florida source: "I don't know
who the Florida source is. I don't
know where he got his information, but it is bad information."
As for the "cut-and-dried case,"
he said: "our conscience is clear.
Our recruiting of Vince Martello
was clean."
There has been no word from
the NCAA. "I don't think anything
will come out of it," said Smith.
'Vince is one of the top 100
players in America, and the
NCAA talks with the top 100 or so
athletes about their recruiting.''

The News-Journal also said

Smith had some hard feelings
toward Florida. It was rumored
during the recruiting season that
he was in line as a major contender for the head coaching job
there. It said Smith claimed this
rumor hurt his recruiting, costing
him a recruit from Washington,
The article again quoted Smith
on recruiting: "Basketball recruiting is probably the most
vicious among the major sports.
Everyone is going after that
player who can come in and

He denied the rumor that he

was in the running for the Florida
post. "There was a lot of print
saying that I was a candidate for
the Florida job. I never talked
with Florida officials about it. I
didn't call them and they didn't
call m e . "
He also didn't think the rumor
caused any trouble with his
recruiting. There were other
things which hurt it, Smith said.
As for recruiting in general,
Smith says "90 percent of the
schools go straight down the line

selling their program. The other

10 percent throw mud.''
He said this incident will have
no affect on Martello coming to
Auburn. "Vince is going to be one
of the best players signed in the
conference this year. He'll play as
a freshman without a doubt. We
plan on using Vince as a big
As Smith said, why would two
teams at the bottom of the
standings fight with each other?

Fiournoy bids senior athletes farewell

By Becky Hopf
Assistant Sports Editor
Four years can go by quickly, especially when you're young. And
four years can really pass quickly, according to Sewell Hall head
resident Brownie Fiournoy, when you're watching young people
"This is how I feel about young people," said Fiournoy. "In my
many years here working with them, I've found them most
rewarding. With each passing four year .period and the group that
passes through, I've found that my work becomes even more
stimulating. With each four year period, I further my belief in trust,
faith and hope for their future and in our future for having people
like them go out into the world."
And, as Fiournoy prepares to watch another group of seniors
leave Sewell Hall, he finds this group no exception.
Senior flanker on the football team, Mark Robbins, said last fall
he thought this group of seniors was closer than any others he'd seen
in his four years here. While Fiournoy said all the seniors of the past
have been close, he did find a difference in this group of football
"They have had the greatest challenge," said Fiournoy. "They
had to go through a coaching change and new regulations. It's not
easy to do that, and they completed the season with an 8-3 record.
From an athletic standpoint, that is a very successful season.
"I attribute these young mens' success to a number of things.
Number one is their home environment and the way they were
brought up. Number two would be the constant faith and motivation
from the coach who honestly believes in them."


llwtognphy: Mark Almond


.Auburn's senior athletes end careers here

According to Fiournoy, the list of senior leaders inside Sewell's

walls could go on and on.
"I would definitely have to say Charlie Trotman has been a
leader," said Fiournoy. "Jim Skuthan (came in with this group four
years ago but was redshirted one year to make him a junior now),
Mark Robbins, George Stephenson, Jorge Portela, Joe Cribbs...the
list could go on and on. These young men are leaders from both an
athletic standpoint and in academic effort and achievement. They
are good citizens and strong moral characters.
"Some of these seniors will still be in school even though their
eligibility may have run out. There are people like Harvey Glance,
James Walker and Steve Renfroe who have shown tremendous
leadership ability."

But despite being leaders, Sewell's senior class has also shown
that they're only human. Especially when it comes to pranks.
"Well," said Fiournoy, "they're away from home and they're no
different from most of the other people who come here at first. They
go off fool's hill. They come here as high school hotshots, and
they're immature.
"But they develop into very mature adults," he continued."Then
there are some like Charlie Trotman who come here as very mature
young men and leave as mature young men. Paul South is definitely
in this category. There was never a finer or stronger example than
Paul represents for us."
There have been lighter moments in dealing with pranks.
Fiournoy said he was walking outside the dorm one evening when he
found Trotman standing outside his door looking at Mark
Dorminey's who lived next door to Trotman when he lived there.
Fiournoy asked Trotman what he was doing because he had a
container of water in his hand. Trotman explained that Dorminey
had run by and thrown a grapefruit at him, and he was trying to get
him back for it.
Trotman asked Fiournoy to knock on Dorminey's door, and as a
joke, get after him for throwing the grapefruit. Fiournoy, who said
he loves to be a part of a joke, readily agreed and proceeded to
lecture Dorminey by telling him he knew the grapefruits were not
for throwing, etc.
Fiournoy said Dorminey "responded beautifully," and while he
was apologizing, Trotman came from around the corner and
drenched Dorminey.
"I usually find out about these little pranks either when I read
about it in the newspaper or when it's happened so long ago that
there's nothing I can do or say about it...Each one of them is
responsible for and to each other. But these jokes are all a part of
living at college."
And as the time draws near for Fiournoy to say goodbye to this
senior class, he finds "it's a very sad and happy occasion. I'm happy
to see them go out into the world, and I follow them closely after
they leave.
"But I'm sad to see them leave because they're just like my own
children. You can't live with people for four years without feeling
that way.
"I learned more from them by far than they've learned from m e , "
said Fiournoy. "My wife and I feel that with every group of young
men who come through here, we gain more. We've learned so much
from this group."

'Could've done better' Floyd says of Carter


By Gary Watson
Plainsman Sportswriter
For many of us, Olympic
athletes are just some imaginary
figures. Our views on the Olympic
Boycott and our feelings about the
athletes involved are based solely
on what we hear in the news and
read in the papers.
Our opinions are based on this
mostly one-sided viewpoint presented by these media. We are
given more information based on
the president's side than we are
those of the people directly
affected, the athletes.
My personal opinion has been to
support the president. At a time
when our country is facing every
conceivable crisis, it is time to
unite behind our chosen leader.
Whether or not he is right isn't as
important as our show of support
for his decision.
I talked with James Walker
and Stanley Floyd about the
boycott. Because both have direct
ties with Auburn, the boycott hits
close to home. They had some
presented the athletes' side of the
Walker said he has mixed emo- ,
tions about it. ' 'Personally, I hate
to see the boycott. I would have
loved to have gone to the
Olympics, but I can see the
president's side, too."
He said he has lost interest in
running this year. "The Olympics

were the big thing to work for this

year. Now that they're off for us,
it just isn't worth the time and
effort involved."
Floyd is opposed to the boycott.
Although he is hurt by the president's decision, he feels worse for
those people who have trained
just for the Olympics.
"I am against the boycott
because of the training involved:
those people who are out of school
and have trained on their own and
had to bear the cost themselves."
Floyd said he looks at the situation from the athletes side.
"Carter could have come up with
a better decision. I don't know
what else he could have done, but
he could have done better."
Floyd also feels as if he is
running for nothing. "It's like a
dead-end street; there isn't any
direction in which to turn."
Both Walker and Floyd are
planning on going to the Olympic
Trials in Eugene, Ore., with hopes
of making the honorary Olympic
team. But it isn't going to be a
true picture of what the team
would have been like since many
of the quality athletes are
skipping the Trials.
Floyd says he isn't interested at
the prospects of alternate games.
"If some unknown wins an
Olympic gold, and someone else
wins a gold medal from an
alternative game, who do you
think will benefit the most?"
He has a valid point. Nothing
can rank as highly in the hearts
and minds of an athlete as an
Olympic gold medal.
Walker signed a petition at an
indoor meet in February. "One of
the lawyers representing the
athletes passed around a petition
for those not in favor of a boycott,
and I signed it." He said he wasn't
as strongly against the boycott as
he once was since he has thought
about it.

When asked if he would sign the

petition today, Walker pondered
the question for a moment and
said, "I probably would."
Floyd didn't sign any kind of
opposition paper to the boycott. "I
was just getting established when
the idea of a boycott came up.
Now I'm second in the world in
the 100 meters. I would probably
sign something now though."
He feels like this could be his
only shot at Olympic competition.
"This was my year to make the
team. Something may come up
between now and 1984 where I
wouldn't be able to go."
The athletes still have a shot at
direct competition between themselves and Olympic athletes from
other countries. The top three
athletes in the running events in
the trials, will go to Germany
before the Olympics start. There
they will train until the Games
are over and then compete
against national teams from
other countries.
Both will follow the progress of
the games as a spectator. Walker
said he will keep up with the times
in the events, especially his specialty, the 400 i n t e r m e d i a t e
hurdles. "I'm going to follow the
times to see if I had a shot at a
What effect will the boycott',

said he wasn't sure. "If enough
nations support the boycott, it
may have a permanent effect. If
only the United States and some
small nations go along, it won't
have much effect. The boycott by
the African nations in 1976 didn't
cause much trouble:"
Floyd said the president opened
the door for other countries to use
in the future to show their opposition for something. "It could stop
the Olympics all together. Russia
may not come to the 1984 Games
in Los Angeles. By the United

States doing this, it may cause a

chain reaction for future Olympics."
What other alternative could
have been chosen that wouldn't
have involved the athletes so
much? Both feel like going to the
Olympics and proving the^
American athletes to be superior
to the Soviets would he a better

would probably choose this as

He said, "We should have gone

Auburn faculty member now

the University of West Virginia,
will also appear in the 8 p.m.
The Birmingham company,
Alabama's only modern dance
troupe, was invited to perform as
a guest artist by Phyllis Penney,
coordinator of the Auburn group.
The Atlanta Journal called the
Birmingham company " a creatively energetic group," and the
Birmingham News labelled the
company's show "stunning."
The dance company will

The theatre is choreographed
by members of the Auburn faculty and has performed six concerts

Due to funding cutbacks caused
by the current economic situation, Penney said that the upcoming concerts may be the last that
the dance theatre can present
"for a while."
The dance theatre will perform
a variety of dances ranging from
modern ballet to technical dance.
"There will be something for
everybody," Penney said as she
emphasized that all forms of
dance will be performed.

Sondi Feldmaier choreographed a modern ballet entitled

"Rainbow Reflections" which
features an original music score
by Dr. Larry Barker, a professor
in the speech communication department.
Other dances to be featured will
include Heather Millar's choreography of "From the Center"
which features the technical
dancers of the Auburn group and
Dawn Butler's choreography of
"Cool Aid."
Penney's dance composition
class will perform "Contents,"
and the dance theatre will perform her choreography of "Pres e r v a t i o n . " Penney will be

Roy Scheider brings emotion,

expertise to 'All That Jazz'
. "To be on the wire is life, the
rest is waiting."
This is the opening as well as
one of the themes of the semiauto biographical movie "All That

Bob Fosse. It is the story of a man

work is his life. It is the story of
how he becomes trapped in that
life. .

Gideon finds himself in the hospital for heart trouble. But there
is much more below that vivacious skin.
Gideon, we realize early in the
film, is a workaholic as well as a
l staunch believer in grabbing the
gusto while you can. Going hand

But death in this film is not just
a concept, an end to life. It is
embodied in a white clad beauty
who appears in Joe's dreams and
visions and helps us learn more
about his character.
Gideon has lived his entire life
for self-satisfaction and personal

gain. His marriage ended in

divorce because of his cheating.
He drinks heavily, takes speed
and "sleeps with a great many
women." Apparently he thinks
life is just a short happy trip and
he wants to get all of it he can.
And yet, beneath that lies a
person very sensitive to other's
needs and wishes. He is deeply in
love with his girlfriend Katie,
played a d m i r a b l y by Ann
Reinking. He is joyful when near
his daughter, Michelle, and he is
aware of and sorry for the poor
treatment he gave his ex-wife.

how we can all get caught up in all

Still he tries to suppress these

feelings by passing it all off as
"bullshit." His problem as described later in the movie is that
"he got to where he didn't know
where the bullshit ended and the
reality began." By the time he
realized what a blessing life was
and how much it meant to him, it
was too late.
"All That Jazz" is an excellent
film that was the only strong
competition for "Kramer vs.

Album Reviews

Lou Reed
Dear MGM,
What would have happened if
Mel Brooks' tap-dancing monster
in "Young Frankenstein" had
continued to perform on broadway instead of breaking loose?
Would the freak appeal have
lasted or would the performer
have fallen on hard times?
I have come up with a brilliant
idea for screenplay that would
answer these questions. It's
entitled "Old Frankensteinor
the Lou Reed Story."
The scripts begins when mad
genius Andy Warhol creates a
weird band to peform with his
slide shows.
The musicians, who include a
vampirish female singer named
Nico, a mad electric fiddler
named John Cale and a lead
singer named Lou Reed, become
a group called The Velvet
The band's music, which one
critic describes as resulting from
a secret marriage between Bob
Dylan and the Marquis the Sade,
fascinates their audiences.
Particularly fascinating of the
macabre group is Reed, who
sings about everything from
heroin addiction to bondage with
a delivery that is incredibly ugly,
but strangely fascinating.
The effect of the discordant
music merging with the eeriness
of the lyrics produces an effect
like watching a python eat a
rabbit. Something says turn

away, but you find yourself

s t a r i n g e n r a p t u r e d by the
But then the '60s end and soon
so does the Velvet Underground.
But not Lou Reed. He decides to
overcome the few obstacles
standing between himself and
superstardom as a solo performer. Regretably for Reed these few
obstacles are the fact that he can
not play guitar and that his voice
is hypnotic but not on tune.
But Reed does have one thingstyle. The Warhol c r e a t e d
monster continues to be successful by singing about the decadence of Berlin, or the decadence
of Coney Island or just the decadence of Lou Reed.
Occassionally Reed will avoid
singing about decadence and try
to be avant garde. Normally
when he does this his fans start
asking embarrassing questions.
"Hey can this guy really sing?
Hey is he using all his fingers
when he plays that guitar? Did
"Heavy Metal Monster" really
have any deep symbolic meaning
for you, Herb?"
Sensing lighted torches about
him, Reed would normally rediscover decadence.
Then in 1979 Reed incorporates
Jazz and a guitarist named Nils
Lofgrin to produce an
record THE BELLS,
which critics finally say is good.
He follows the recora up witn a
new release called GROWING UP
This record is incredibly avant
It even contains lyrics like
"You said you liked me for my
mind. Well I really love your
behind, get up and boogy, get up
and dance, get up and boogie. . ."
Critics respond to the album en
masse by asking: Hey, are you
sure this guy can sing? Why is he
playing a guitar with an ax? and
exactly how musically out of
touch would I look if I admit I
don't like these lyrics?
Despite some good reviews
receives, Reed joins Shaun
Cassidy in hosting an NBC car-

toon show called ' 'Beauty and the

Beast" meet the Kiddy terrors.
Reed later committs suicide when
he is replaced by Wolfeman Jack
and Bobby Picket.
If you are interested in making
a movie from this script, Lou said
he would be happy to star as
himself. He is running out of
sellable decadence.

This disc was taped live at the
Tivoli Gardens Concert Hall in
Copenhagen, Denmark, on July 6,
1979. On it, three of the best jazz
musicians of this century combine their talents to produce
outstanding versions of such
classics as "It's Only a Paper
Moon," "I'll Remember April"
and "I Can't Get Started."

Sellers wild and wacky

In 'The Pink Panther' |I

There are few characters in the

world of entertainment that are
widely recognized, as well as
loved, and also have the uncanny
ability to make a person laugh,
regularly and incessantly. Bugs
Bunny is one such character.
Another is Inspector Clouseau as
played by Peter Sellers.
Clouseau is a member of the
Paris police force. He is a very
dignified man, a bit pompous,
overconfident, terrifically inept
and unfortunately very accident
prone. As a character he was
formed some sixteen years ago in
a joint effort of actor Sellers and
director Blake Edwards in the
first of a series of Clouseau films,
"The Pink Panther."
On its own merit "The Pink
Panther" would have trouble
being remembered by movie
fans. There are a number of
weaknesses and it relies too
heavily, as all the films in the
Panther series do, on the talents
of Sellers. But as the film that
spawned the lovable and laughable Inspector, "Panther" is well
worth remembering as well as
In this movie a very sophisticated and suave thief played by
David Niven, has stolen a priceless diamond from a Eurasian
Princess. That jewel is of course
the Pink Panther, famous in
legend as well as Saturday morning cartoons. This pilfering has
international repercussion and

brings onto the scene the indominitable Inspector Clouseau.

Little does Clouseau realize
however, that the thief's accomplice, as well as his lover, is none
other than Mrs. Clouseau.
makes for still another twist in
the Clouseau potpouri.
What follows is essentially a lot
of monkey business and foolishness. There are car chases,
gorilla costumes, slapstick lines
and pitfalls and some sidesplitting humor, all a la Clouseau.
The film gets a little silly at times
and the plot is essentially not
there but it does make for some
good clean shallow fun, all
matched to the catching Pink
Panther theme music of Henry
Blake Edwards, who directed
this film, has also worked with
Sellers on a number of other
films. They have become quite a
successful comedy team and
some of their other hits include
"The Party," "A Shot in the
Dark " and "The Return of the
Pink Panther."

Funderburk takes reins from Philpott

By Steve Parish
Plainsman Staffwriter
The story that attracted the
most attention this year was
the ending of the 15-year term
of Harry M. Philpott as
Auburn's president and the
search to find his successor.
Philpott announced, his retirement on Sept. 7. He said he
had felt no pressure in making
his decision and admitted that
the thought had been in his
mind for some time.
The outgoing president made
it clear he would not play a role
in choosing bis successor. "I
could give you a list of candidates," Philpott said. " I could
give you the names of every
dean, department head and
faculty member at Auburn
University and go beyond that,
perhaps, but I think that it's
highly improper for a president who is going out to have
any role in the selection of bis
As Philpott faded into the
background, the search itself
began to capture the attention
of the state media as well as
the criticism of Auburn faculty
and students.
Less than three weeks after
Philpott's announcement, Gov.
Fob James, chairman of the
board of trustees, appointed a
search committee headed by
former state Sen. Robert
H a r r i s . T r u s t e e s Morris I
Savage, Ralph "Shug" Jordan,
Rep. William Nichols and
Michael McCartney rounded,
out the committee.
But James had not appointed
a faculty member or student to
the c o m m i t t e e , and both
groups immediately expressed
The concern of the two
groups led to the establishment
of a student and faculty committee that was charged to act
in an advisory capacity for the
duration of the search. Cooper
King, c h a i r m a n of
University Senate, was chairman of the faculty committee,
while SGA President Ron
Taylor headed the student
From that point, the job of
the search committee was to
collect resumes on potential
presidents. Harris said he was
impressed with the number of
names sent in by Auburn
faculty and alumni.
The collection process ended
officially Dec. 1. Over the
C h r i s t m a s holiday period,
Taylor and the faculty committee got a chance to have a look
at the 18 resumes considered
most promising.
The right to view the
resumes was one for which the
two groups had been fighting
for several months; it provided
an encouraging sign that student and faculty voices would
be heard.
Events began to pick up p a c e
with the beginning of Winter

quarter. The Associated Press

reported what it had "learned"
to be the five finalists, but its
report proved false.
The five finalists, however,
became public with their visits
on campus in the last two
weeks of January.
University at Montgomery;

It was found out later,

though, that a vote taken at the
meeting had produced a 7-5
majority for Sample over
Rainer. Bob Harris said later
that going into the meeting, he
had felt that vote would be
But Harris said later that
J a m e s asked for more time to
interview the prime candi-

The first, circulated by the

A m e r i c a n Association of
University Professors, the
most outspoken group of
faculty during the search, said,
"A shroud of secrecy has prevented the faculty and student
body as a whole from either
having the opportunity to
understand how the process
was working or to have a
"meaningful role."
The other petition, issued by
Dr. Crystal Kelly, called for the
immediate halt of the search.
It criticized "the appearance
of clandestine and undemocratic procedures employed by the
Search Committee.'.'
The governor, however, still
did not convene the board. His
press secretary insisted he was
simply too busy with the
Legislature in session to call a
meeting. Finally, on March 8, a
meeting was convened in
Montgomery. The t r u s t e e s
spent the morning Interviewing Rainer, Funderburk and
Sample, and they came to a
public meeting ready to get
their job finished.
But the job was not to be
terminated. A 6-6 vote between
Sample and
showed the board to be in a
One trustee, after that meeting, questioned what had
happened to Rainer as a
| nominee. "The only thing that
I surprised me about the meeting was that Rainer was not
nominated," said Savage.


President Philpott reti red after 15 years.
James Martin, interim president of the University of
Arkansas; Ernest Smerdon,
vice chancellor for academic
affairs at the University of
Texas; Steven Sample, vice
president for academic affairs
at the University of Ne braska;
and Rex Rainer, head of the
State Highway Department, all
came to Auburn to be interviewed by the faculty and
student committees as well as

The Plainsman learned later

Legislative allotment prompts

hiring freeze, internal shifts
By John Mangels
Assistant News Editor
New Auburn President Dr.
Hanly Funderburk began his
administrative duties with a
hard-driving theme of efficiency and $61.6 million in
state appropriations.
The Alabama Legislature
passed a $1.37 billion education
budget in the final hours of the
last day of its regular legislative session. That May 19
decision netted Auburn an increase of 11 percent over the
state appropriation last year,
but $15.7 million less than the
$77.3 million originally requested by the University.
The budget version approved
by the Legislature was one
favored primarily by House
leadership. A Senate version
and a revised budget submitted by Gov. Fob James
were both rejected by the
House. J a m e s ' version would
have held $20 million of the

budget in conditional status,

with the release of funds dependent upon the growth of the
educational trust fund. Had
J a m e s ' version been approved,
Auburn's portion of the conditional fund would have been
$6 million, the second largest
holding in the state.
The favored House version
was sent to a conference committee on May 8, and survived
a last minute attempt to kill the
bill through filibuster in the
House. Controversy came not
over monetary amounts but
over the working of a pay raise
for primary and secondary
school lunch workers. Had the
appropriation bill been vetoed
by either chamber of the Legislature or James, a special
session would have been
necessary for approval of
' funds, a common occurence for
the p a s t s e v e r a l y e a r s .
Funderburk immediately
initiated plans for the usage of
the state funds, promising a
cost of living increase and

merit raises for faculty and

staff. The former AVM Chancellor began a budget analysis
program designed to "seek
greater efficiency and budget
Funderburk also placed a
freeze on the filling of vacant
faculty positions, purchases
and major expenditures, proposed internal shifts of money,
people and responsibilities
from lower to higher producing
schools, and spearheaded a
U n i v e r s i t y ' s budget. The
balance, achieved through a
reduction of e x p e n d i t u r e
levels, would eliminate the
need to dip into an emergency
reserve fund or take the deficit
from state funds.
Funderburk said the state
appropriation would generate
about $8.5 million in "new"
dollars for all segments of the
University, but that it would
take about two or three budget
cycles to get the University at
its correct funding level.

Students continue to fight City Hall

By Tim Hunt
Assistant News Editor
Conflicts between Auburn
students and local legislators
were more intense this year
than in recent years. One main
factor involved with the
increased tension was the
amount of legislation passed
by the nine member council
that influenced the life style of
Auburn students.
It began last summer with
the passage of a local bike
Ordinance which prohibited the
riding or parking of bicycles on
sidewalks in the downtown
area. Auburn students were

compromise effort by the SGA,
the City Council passed a controversial "roadblock ordinance" prohibiting the solicitation of funds for charitable or

Some 80 students participated in a debate in council
chambers calling for a compromise, rather than completely doing away with a

turned to other means of
raising money for charity.

pulled himself from lane six of
the eight-lane tank and was
greeted with a big hug from
Auburn swim coach Richard

mobbed by teammates, fans,
reporters, and photographers.
"It's a tremendous thrill,"
said Quick, "to have the privilege of coaching someone who
has done what no one in the

an array of talent.

the Eagles gave what many

The Preservation Hall Jazz

nonetheless, outstanding performance of jazz offerings,
