I m p a c t . The word denotes an outside force or change. Academics, sports, organizations and other individuals all had an impact in the lives of the students w h o m a d e up this year at Liberty Baptist College. These students, in turn, affected the community of Lynchburg through planned programs and spontaneous actions. World, national and local events also had an impact on students as they changed or reinforced ideas.

M a n y students faced their first year at college. T h e largest freshman class, 1079 strong, arrived three days ahead of most returning students in the fall. Unusually cold January weather greeted 326 n e w students for the second semester. A n e w computer registration process had to be explained and tested for the first year. It w a s a change that had an impact on L B C students. Perspectives of the administration changed as sights began to focus on future building on the rest of Liberty Mountain.

P e o p l e interacted in meeting new and lasting friends. Students had an impact on each other through social activities. Entertainment included six concerts along with Saturday night films planned by the Student Government Association. The drama department presented four plays including the "Sound of Music" and "Oedipus, the King." Studying was also a normal part of the student's lives although other activities often took priority. Chapel and church services at T h o m a s Road Baptist Church were regular aspects of life at L B C that also had an impact on m a n y L B C students.

A c a d e m i c s had an impact on both students and faculty. It w a s the first full year for L B C as an accredited institution. Twenty-seven new faculty m e m b e r s were added due to an enrollment increase of 411 students over last year. From the 4 4 majors offered at LBC, Elementary Education w a s the most popular with 391 students. A majority of students sought a Bachelor of Science degree while only 2 2 were enrolled in the Associate of Art program which is only in its second year. For the first time, advance registration took place in April for classes of the 1982 fall semester.

C h a n g e s on the campus had an impact on students. Workers readied two new threestory dorms for the fall semester and the B.R. Lakin School of Religion Building opened in January of 1982. T w o serving lines in the remodeled 1000-seat cafeteria met the needs of a growing student body and was a welcome change. S o m e things remained unchanged. Students still had to select desired classes. Unfortunately desired classes were sometimes closed which meant taking alternate classes. Finances and school bills still had an impact on students. Of course, they have a universal impact on all college students.

Student life

S t u d e n t life is as important to a college as the academics. The activities this year usually kept the social-minded students busy. Others buckled down to the grind as s u m m e r tans faded out of existence. The evolution-creation debate brought the controversial issue to LBC. The burning down of the barn again drew attention to LBC. Chapel had m a n y interesting speakers, which challenged the students with the Word of God. They left a positive impact on the students. The year at L B C provided m a n y students with memories which will be recalled later in life.

Homecoming ' eekends at L B C were often busy W eekends at L B C were often busy times, but the first weekend of October, Homecoming Weekend 1981, was especially full of activities and people. In addition to homecoming weekend, Parent's Weekend and Collage-for-a-Weekend began on Thursday. Parents c a m e from all over the country for a long awaited reunion with their sons and daughters. High school students c a m e to get a good look at LBC. The highlight of the weekend was the Miss Liberty Pageant. Twenty-four girls, w h o had been nominated by their peers a few weeks earlier, participated in the pageant. Merv and Betty Moore, formerly of Derric Johnson's ReGeneration, hosted the pageant. The Moores entertained with songs and jokes between formalities of the pageant. After the judges selected ten semi-finalists, the Moores questioned the remaining participants. The questioning aided both the judges and the student body as they chose the new Miss Liberty. The judges narrowed the choices further as five finalists were chosen. The five finalists included Cindy Burr, Jacqui Hillard, Susan L a w m a n , Kathy Wilson and Sherry Hixon. Liberty Baptist College President A. Pierre Guillermin Finally the long-awaited m o m e n t came. and his wife, Louanne, accept the dedication gift from Cards had been distributed to the students the student body.

five finalists. During the tally of the votes, five finalists. During the tally of Ed Crowell, student body president, called for school president Dr. A. Pierre Guillermin and his wife to c o m e to the stage. Organizers of the pageant chose to dedicate the pageant to the Gullermins and students responded by raising m o n e y to buy a grandfather clock, something the Guillermins had wanted for a long time. This was the first time a pageant had been dedicated. " W e asked the students to show their support for a m a n w h o has guided the school through the years," Crowell said, "and they responded admirably." Finally, the winners had been chosen. All 24 contestants, wearing brightly colored evening gowns, took their places as the Moores announced the student's choices. The second runner-up was Cindy Burr from Zelienople, Pa. Jacqui Hillard from Cincinnati, Ohio, was chosen as first runner-up. Chancellor Dr. Jerry Falwell stepped onto the stage for the privilege of announcing the winner. A s expectant tension filled the atmosphere, the envelope was opened and Susan L a w m a n was declared Miss Liberty of 1981-82. Crowned and kissed on the cheek by Dr. Falwell, Susan stood in disbelief that she had been chosen. It was both an honor and a shock.


"I felt extremely honored to be chosen to be in the contest, m u c h less win it," Susan said. Even as the auditorium emptied amidst pictures, smiles and joyous tears, people thought of the upcoming Saturday night footbali g a m e against Gardner-Webb. A crowd of 6,147 turned out only to see the Flames fall 14-9. A Mark DeMoss first quarter field goal gave the Flames a 3-0 lead, but a 50-yard punt return and a 52yard interception return put the Bulldogs on top 14-3. The Flames struggled to try and salvage a victory with a fourth quarter touchdown pass, but Gardner-Webb held on to win. By Sunday evening the campus began to return to its normal routines. The m a n y events of the weekend, along with the fellowship with new and familiar friends, m a d e it an exciting weekend to remember. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Carolyn Sole, Tracy Schreiber and Paul Stoltzfus

'Moore' than entertainers

In their third trip to LBC. Merv and Betty Moore, Nashville. Tenn , hosted LBC's fourth Miss Liberty Pageant Here the Moores amuse the audience be tween songs

l\s the music resounded throughout the auditorium, smiles crossed their faces. The smiles were more than a facade because Merv and Betty Moore, hosts of the 1981 Miss Liberty Pageant, showed that they enjoy their roles as Christian entertainers. The Moores said the word 'entertainer' is not a frightening word to them as it is to some Christians. "If entertainment is all w e accomplish, that's wrong," Merv said. "Our program needs to be appealing," Betty said, "but the message must always c o m e through." A n "appealing program" to the Moores is more than simply average clothing and preparation. The Moores perform 15 to 20 concerts each month and strive to m a k e each one a quality performance. Their professional approach sparkles with enthusiasm. Because of their professional approach, the Moores are finding opportunities to sing outside the church. Their concerts in elude theme parks, conventions, high schools, colleges, clubs and fairs. These opportunities have increased their desire to reach professional people. "Who's going to the lawyers, doctors and professional singers and musicians? I of know hearts are open in the professional circles of the country and not m a n y people are going there," Merv said. "Christ went to where the people were and that is what w e try to do. "We can go into a secular situation and

sing songs about Christ, and the people respond. W e try to let them know that w e care about them." The Moores have been singing about Christ for more than nine years, both individually and as Moore & Moore. Merv travelled with Derric Johnson's ReGeneration for one year before meeting a young lady named Betty in the music office of a Denver Church. Soon after they met, Betty auditioned for ReGeneration and was chosen from more than 1000 young people. Traveling became an instant part of their married lives when only 18 days after their wedding, they were on the road with ReGeneration. After two years with the group, Merv and Betty sensed a desire to begin a ministry of their own. The couple began traveling as Moore and Moore in October 1976. Merv and Betty enjoy their present ministry and both agree that part of God's will is "loving what you do." "The world needs to see Christians w h o enjoy what they do, and that is what w e want to show them," Merv said. At this point, the Moores future is certain. They plan to continue traveling and reaching out to professional people. "God can change our desires," Betty said, "and at that point w e will do something else." Until then, Merv and Betty Moore will continue to be entertainers with a message, w h o enjoy what they do. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Piul Stoltzfus Student Life â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

Fish to Gish? T o o little to Doolittle? C r e w s worked late into the night on October 12, 1981, to prepare the Liberty Baptist College Multi-Purpose Center for the media attention it would receive the following night. O n October 13, the Multi-Purpose Center b e c a m e the focal point of cameras as the issue of creation vs. evolution reached the c a m p u s in the form of a debate. B y 6 p.m., two hours before the scheduled 8 p.m. start, several students already stood shivering outside the steel entrance doors. Ushers paced the floor making last minute preparations for the large crowd which w a s expected. Electrical cords snaked through the isles and were coiled underneath the wooden camera platforms. Television equipment and two tripods dotted the platform as media personnel reserved a spot enabling them to get the best shots. At 6:30, the crowd started pouring through the doors searching out the front row seats which had not been already reserved. By 7 p.m., television c a m e r a m e n and technicians donned headphones and began focusing and making various adjustments on the expensive cameras. The bleachers slowly filled as more than 3,300 people streamed into the auditorium. T h e three m e n stepped onto the platform several minutes before 8 p.m. to scattered applause. Dr. Jerry Falwell m a d e the introductory remarks, explaining the rules the debaters were to follow. Dr. Russell Doolittle, a professor of Biochemistry at the University of California at San Diego, w a s introduced first. Applause followed his introduction. "It's probably better that you do all this clapping before you hear m e talk," Doolittle said, provoking laughter from the audience. At 8:15, the taped debate began. In his opening statement, Falwell said, "Religion and Science, rightly understood, are not enemies but they compliment each other." Both Falwell and Gish stressed that the debate w a s not between science and religion but between evolution and scientific creation. Doolittle, with his arms folded, began his opening 18-minute statement with an explanation of w h y he accepted the debate. H e said his colleagues urged him not to accept because all it would accomplish w a s "giving publicity for a special cause." "I'm here because I'm a concerned citizen," Doolittle said, "and I'm worried about the future of education in America." 14/Student Life —

Debate

Doolittle said it w a s a "travesty" that the state legislators in Arkansas and Louisiana awarded equal time in teaching creation science. "Evolution is a part of science, whereas creation is a religion. Our country w a s founded on the principle of keeping the two separate," Doolittle said. He spent more than 10 minutes in his opening statement citing a Livermore, Calif., school which taught creation in the classroom using materials from the Creation Life Publishers, which are connected with the Institute of Creation Research. "I though the best w a y for m e to m a k e m y point to the heart of America, is to read from their materials," he said. Doolittle began by reading from the book "Dry Bones," used in the Livermore classroom. "I'm concerned when materials of that sort are introduced into the classroom with nothing short of a blitzkrieg to put one narrow point of view before people," the professor said. Doolittle emphasized the age of the earth and the man-ape-like ancestry evidences which, he said, were the two most important ones. Doolittle said most scientists agree the earth is 4.6-billionyears old through dating of meteorites. Doolittle rushed the remainder of his slide presentation on the evidence of evolution near the end of his allotted time after condemning the teaching of creation in the public school classroom. "This has been the fastest 18 minutes of m y life," Doolittle said as time w a s called by Falwell, w h o moderated the event. Dr. Duane Gish, the associate director of the Institute for Creation Research in San Diego, opened by calling evolution an "atheistic theory" and m a d e a plea

for the scientific evidence, excluding the Bible or any other religious literature, to be taught in public schools. "The onesided indoctrination of our students in this materialistic philosophy is a violation of religious and academic freedoms. It is poor science and poor education." Gish said the students should be challenged to decide for themselves which view is more credible or reasonable. According to Gish, this is good education. Gish went on to present evidences for creation as he critiqued the big bang theory, which is based on an explosion of a "cosmic egg" of subatomic particles and radiation. "For s o m e inexplicable reason, this cosmic egg exploded and out of this initial chaos, our marvelously complex universe s o m e h o w created itself. "If evolutionists really believed in science," Gish said, "they would abandon their faith in the god of evolution." In closing, Gish said the real decision w a s to believe, "in the beginning God, or in the beginning Hydrogen." A s he opened his five-minute rebuttal Doolittle said, "Dr. Gish continues with more of his illogical logic, if it can't be explained by natural causes, it must be supernatural. "I think that there's no doubt w e will explain all these questions he's raised to everyone's satisfaction eventually," Doolittle said. Doolittle specifically cited Gish's critique of the thermodynamic question and said there are no gaps in the fossil Doolittle commented, "only by an understanding of the logic of evolution are we going to understand the problems that we face as a civilization today."

record, but a complete set of transitional forms. Gish began his five-minute rebuttal by referring back to the Livermore, Cal. classroom where the teacher used materials which referred to the Bible. "The materials that w e have prepared for the public school have been carefully edited to remove any references to the Bible." Gish said. Gish stressed again that the question was " H o w did things c o m e about, creation or evolution? I say the scientific evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of creation." "Creation science is a psuedoscience," Doolittle said in his closing summary. "To put it in the classroom is to handicap America." Gish responded by stating the urgency "that our students be exposed to all of the evidence." As the debate ended and the cameras were packed away, Doolittle and Gish were surrounded by interested students and faculty. Although the televised portion of the debate was over, the issue would be discussed m a n y times after the event. Paul Stoltzfus

Three thousand, three hundred people filled the LBC Multi-Purpose Center to watch the debate. The debate drew attention from the national media including A B C , C B S and"The Washington Post." "We're covering the event in the context of religious broadcasting, " said A B C "Nightline" reporter Joe Benton.

hat is four inches square, has six colors on each side, costs approximately $4.00, and can leave a person bewildered for hours? It is a cube of twenty-seven smaller cubes ingeniously linked together so that each layer of nine cubes can be turned without the colorful puzzle falling apart. The Rubik's cube is the original, but it has several spinoffs including the Snake, The Pyramid, The Cylinder and m a n y more. The cube quickly gained the attention of students with engineering minds along with those w h o were simply curious. Students could be seen toying with the multi-colored toy on buses, while waiting in line or while simply relaxing in their dorm room. "It's hard to put it d o w n if you can't do it," Simon Horn said. Horn, a freshman from Stratford Upon Avon, England, said he had heard of the cube in West Germany. "Once you can do it," Horn said, "you become bored with it and it's no challenge anymore." The challenging solution to the cube seems to be the reason for its mesmerizing effects. The Rubik's Cube was created by Professor Erno Rubik, a Hungarian sculptor, designer and architectural engineer. By turning each layer, the color scheme of the cube changes. After it is changed and totally messed up, the object is changed to get all six colors back to the correct color scheme. Sounds easy? Sure, but once you try it, 16/Student Life â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

Rubik's Cube

the more you turn it the more it is messed up. So what do you do? The answer is simple. Purchase one of the m a n y "solutions" available today. There are books on the subject which give formulas for the cube's solution. You could also take the cube apart. But beware if you do this, and m a k e sure you put it together with all the faces in their original position. If not, you m a y never be able to solve the cube again. Talk about frustrating. The solution preferred by others is to buy stickers and stick them over the other stickers. If this solution does not bother your conscience, m a y b e it's the one you prefer. While some cube addicts must settle for a purchased solution, there are those w h o are "naturals" at mastering the cube. O n e student from Chesapeake, Va. says her sister can solve the cube in about three minutes. Other students say they have seen it done anywhere from two minutes to 45 seconds. A natural question to ask, is, " H o w m a n y combinations are possible?" The number of color combinations possible is forty-three million million; more specifically 43,252,003,274,489,856,000. Looking at each color combination one thousand per second, would take over a thousand million years just to see them all. The cube and its counterparts can all leave a person entranced. However, don't get too frustrated (don't throw it at your roommate if you fail to solve the cube). If all else fails you can always read the solution. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Carolyn Sole

Home away from home d a c h person has a different personality, and the w a y they decorate their room is a reflection of their personality. S o m e preferred to hang posters everywhere, others liked to hang flags of all sorts, or other items which m a d e their room special. S o m e preferred the paneled and painted cinder-block walls. Every student w a s faced with several c o m m o n challenges. First of all, where were they to arrange those m a n y items they just could not do without, yet still have room for the three other inhabitants in the room? Usually there was the swapping of space. For example, you traded shelf space for a drawer. Or, you traded closet space for desk space. S o m e students brought tables, milk crates, and their o w n book shelves. This helped solve the space problem to a certain extent. Secondly, there was the challenge of not knowing what your roomies were bringing. "In m y room, w e had three stereos, four popcorn poppers, twelve suitcases, four bookcases, and eight under-the-bed boxes," one student recalled. There w a s only one w a y to solve a situation like that, send things h o m e â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even if they were necessities like stereos and popcorn poppers. Each room was a reflection of the tastes and personalities of its occupants. S o m e students liked the "apartment look," as did the guys in dorm one, room three. They converted one of the bunks into two single beds, hung pictures, set out plants, and scattered rugs. " W e like the look, it makes us feel more at home," said Robert Burton, a senior from Pinole, Calif.

Whether it is colors, styles or attitudes, prep means

Different things to different people O u s t as opinions vary in politics, so opinions dominate talk concerning prep. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word prep? That small word carries with it different meanings and various degrees of positive or negative feeling. Here are s o m e of the answers to that question.

"green pants and a pink shirt" "alligators" "monograms and ribbons" "green, pink, and plaids" "security in a group" "Izod, Lacoste or a brand n a m e " "rich" "docksiders"

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; me Each answer provides a different insight into a subject which every college student must deal with when he or she enters that school where no one was raised exactly the s a m e way and it seems no one comes from the s a m e background. L B C would not be classified as a prep


school, but the first time a student notices a peer wearing pink and green, or any other colors which cause one to look twice, the person forms an immediate opinion. Not only about the clothes, but also, more than likely, about the person. M a n y students feel they can immediately identify a preppy person because of the clothes or colors. Others said it is necessary to know the person.

"You have to know the person's personality to k n o w if they're really preppy or not," one student said. "It's not just the clothes they wear." Another student added, "You have to m a k e a distinction between the lifestyle and the clothes." Lifestyle or attitude is also a c o m m o n answer used to define prep. Prep is often associated with m o n e y or the higher class

because most true prep clothes, or n a m e brands, are expensive. S o m e say prep is "spending more m o n e y than necessary for a n a m e brand." M a n y associate this wealth with an arrogance or 'stuck up' attitude. "People that have an air of sophistication about them usually aren't liked by other people," one male student said. "The prep style goes with that kind of person." Others disagree. "The stereotype is that they have an arrogant outlook, but this isn't always true," said one person. A girl commented, "If you're preppy, you're higher class. It's expensive to be a prep and stuck up is associated with being rich, but I don't think they're any different than I am. They m a y have more m o n e y than m e , but that doesn't m e a n I can't talk to them." The supposed authority on Prep, "The Official Preppy Handbook," mentions money as something that is nice to have but should not be talked about. The Handbook never mentions arrogance as a preppy requirement. The book mentions the Prep value system, which includes: consistency (tradition), nonchalance, charm and discipline. The Handbook also mentions fashion fundamentals. These tips include conservatism, neatness, attention to detail, practicality and quality. S o m e students w h o do not consider themselves preppy, wear brand n a m e s clothes or prep style clothes simply for comfort. O n e female student admitted, "it was the 'in' thing to do so I bought them." It should also be noted that most students differentiate between prep style and Ivy League style. Ivy League is associated with navy blue blazers, wool or tweed jackets, narrow ties and button-down collar shirts. It is usually thought of as more conservative and classy in contrast to casual prep styles. But in comparison, s o m e students still feel an air or arrogance is associated with Ivy Leaguers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; again possibly due to the necessity of m o n e y in order to buy that style of clothing. Prep will always be a matter of opinion or personal preference. Whatever you consider the source of your opinion, whether it be a published handbook, personal preference, or strong feelings, remember that you can't judge a book by its cover and you can't judge a person by their clothes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Paul Stoltzfus

Tragedy in ancient Greece aTor six nights from April 26 to M a y 3, audiences in the Lloyd Auditorium were transported to ancient Greece as the L B C drama department performed "Oedipus, The King." The classic tragedy by Sophocles opens in the city of Thebes in ancient Greece, which is in the throes of a deadly plague. Oedipus, the king (Glenn Williams), distressed at the suffering of his subjects, attempts to disclose the supernatural

cause of the plague and to eliminate it. In the meantime, Oedipus' brother-inlaw, Creon (Mike Salsbury) announces that the gods have shown the cause of the widespread disease to be the presence of a murderer in the city â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the murderer of the former king, Laius. A prophet of Apollo, Teiresias (Noel DePalma), adds to the dilemma by announcing that Oedipus, himself, is the murderer of Laius and is living in sin with the former King's wife, locasta

(Julie Terrell), fathering four children by her. Oedipus accuses the prophet and his brother-in-law of conspiring to take his throne, locasta then intervenes for her brother, yet, in the process reveals to OediOedipus agonizes after he gouged out his eyes when he discovered that he had married his mother and killed his father as the fates had determined.

The "One Acts" gave practical experience and put

Knowledge into practice

1 he "Night of O n e Acts," consisted of plays ranging from "The Traveling M a n " to " M a n in the Bowler Hat." They were presented by Stephen Wedan's play directing class during the nights of November 19, 20 and 21. W e d a n explained that the general approach to the course is to provide s o m e amount of knowledge that can be put d o w n on paper, although most of the work comes from the actual practicing and performing of the olay. The class consisted of juniors and seniors that have been involved in the drama department here at LBC. Each was responsible for the choosing of their play, the casting of their play and for all elements of production. There was a variety of plots and a total of seven plays. They included : "Impromptu," directed by Glenn C. Willams. O n e line in the play described the play as, " A play

that portrays the people, the actors, and reality and distinguishes between reality and fantasy. "Sorry Wrong Number," was directed by Julie Terrell. It was about a murder mystery which displayed h o w m e n rely on mechanical devices to see them through the trials of life. "The Traveling Man," directed by Ty Taylor, was a play which provided insight into the Bible verse that says it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich m a n to enter heaven. "Good Night Caroline," was directed by Gail Hillard. It was a play about a victim conniving a thief w h o had broken into her house. " M a n in the Bowler Hat," a play directed by Michael Salsbury, was an extraordinary comedy about John and Mary â&#x20AC;&#x201D; two very ordinary people, and their not-so-ordinary evening.

"Sham," was directed by Robyn Garner. It was about a burglar w h o decided not to steal anything from a friendly couple but then realized that he must in order to protect their reputations as connoiseurs. "Happy Journey," was directed by Sherry Petty. The play was about a family's journey from Trenton, N.J., to Camden, N.J. to visit their daughter w h o was ill. Along the way, they found out the outstanding strength of their mother. The M i m e entitled "Thief and the Mannequin," by m i m e artists Rebecca S. Pruett, Glenn C. Williams and David Jobe, was about the misforutnes of getting caught doing wrong. The m i m e gave the adventure of still life becoming reality and was used to fill gaps when changes of the play occurred.

The cast of "Sorry Wrong Number," receives instructions from student director Julie Terrell.


She stoops to conquer 1 he L B C drama department opened its 1981-82 season with a performance of Oliver Goldsmith's comedy, "She Stoops to Conquer." The play w a s performed on October 29-31 in the Lloyd Auditorium of the Fine Arts Hall. According to Robert Allen, assistant professor of communications and director of the play, it was one the best examples of 18th century English drama. Like other take-offs of the Restoration period and beyond, it satirized those w h o are self-de

ceived trying to deceive others. The comedy was the story of an evening in the h o m e of Squire Hardcastle (Noel DePalma), the head of a rural English family. Hardcastle invited the son of his friend, Sir Charles Marlow (Derek Cooper) to visit them, intending for young Marlow (Mark Pyle) to meet his young daughter Kate (Laura Branscum). Young Marlow, accompanied by his friend, George Hastings (David Martin), arrived only to be misled by Tony Lumpkin (Mike Salsbury) into thinking that the Hardcastle residence was an

inn. Marlow complicated the deception by mistaking Kate as a maid of the inn and her parents as the landlord and landlady. Deeper confusion resulted when it became evident that George Hastings was going to elope with Constance Nevill (Ronni Ball), a cousin living with the Hardcastles. With this strong cast and interesting plot line, the play proved to be an excellent production. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; John Schlesinger

The spry, 74-yearold eagerly anticipates the completion of a new lodge once again filled with guests and the music that has m a d e this inspiring w o m a n famous.

There is more to drama than opening night emotions. Here is a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on 1 he "Sound of Music" has sentimental appeal to m a n y people w h o remember watching the original Rogers and Hammerstein musical as a child. Others have heard the familiar music and storyline yet have never seen everything c o m e together in an actual performance. But few people realize the exhaustive efforts poured into such a play in order to produce first rate entertainment. The mountains and castles of 1938 Austria were brought to the stage of L B C in February when the drama department relived the touching story of Maria Rainer and the Von Trapp family. Opening night was February 23 and was the beginning of eight performances. Preparations began in early October as nearly 150 L B C students tried out for roles in the familiar classic. The seven children were chosen from a m o n g 285 Lynchburg Christian A c a d e m y students w h o tried out. Practices officially began in November, but memorizing the lines started m u c h earlier. For several weeks before the premier performance, the cast members spent nearly 12 hours per week in painstaking practices. There was music to learn and a script to be memorized. There were steps which, in the next several weeks, would become mere unconscious routines. Individual scenes were pulled out and worked on separately. O n e week before the opening night, the practices began run-throughs of the entire play. There were occasional starts and stops as lines and movements were changed and redirected. Changes were expected as the director and cast strove for perfection; at least as near to perfection as one can c o m e with the patterns of intricate lines, music and steps. "Musicals are harder to pull together," director David Allison conceded. "It takes more time and work because of the requirements of the script plus the musical score and a chorus to integrate." The "Sound of Music" was only the third musical ever performed at LBC. All three have been directed by Allison, w h o has been at L B C for five years. His first two successes were the 1980 production of "Music M a n " and the 1981 showing of " M y Fair Lady." A n average rehearsal during the last strenuous week began at 7 p.m. after a full day of classes. The rehearsal began with prayer, as the actors and director asked

the Lord to strengthen them as they performed. By 7:15, almost everyone was in their places and the run-through began. There was very little joking as actors concentrated on directions and expressions, yet the actors understood. After all, they tried out for the part expecting to work. Certain c o m m e n t s could be heard during the practices. "Quiet!" Probably the most c o m m o n , although it sometimes went unheeded. "I blew it! Sorry." "That was better, but let's try it again."

Before "Don't upstage her." "Where do I cross out to here?" "What's m y line there?" "Start at that line again please." "Louder!" "Hold it. That's wrong. Try it again." "Project your voice. I can't hear you." All of these instructions were shouted out during various scenes but actors realized this was the time for mistakes to be brought to their attention and changed. S o m e scenes flowed easily as actors conPete Cannata


trie 4 I I I ill c p e r s sciously and unconsciously m o v e d through their lines and gestures. Other scenes sputtered and the cast stumbled over movements and words. However, since repetition is the key to learning, those troublesome scenes were rehearsed over and over until the motions became graceful and comfortable. "The pressure on the cast is so m u c h greater when there is an audience because they're being judged every second they're out there," Allison said. A s the practice progressed, the people became more relaxed. Occasional jokes and miscues brought smiles and laughter; yet the intensity remained important and it could be called back at a m o m e n t s notice once the director called for quiet. Laughter and giggles were often subdued in order to continue with lines. Fatigue was also ignored in order to finish the practice. The value of these long exacting rehearsals was quickly acknowledged by both the actors and the director. "Rehearsals are harder because everything is by inches," J a m e s Garner said. "In the real thing, you just c o m e out and do it." Garner, a senior drama major, landed the role of Captain Von Trapp. Garner adds, "Rehearsals are also the most valuable time because that's when you really develop your acting skills."

According to Allison, the first serious rehearsal is very important to the overall performance. "You lay the foundation in the first serious rehearsal and build on that," Allison said. "But the week before the actual play is the most important week of rehearsals because w e do an entire run-through." From a director's point of view, Allison said discipline and objectives are important to m a k e a rehearsal successful. "Having objectives for each scene and then working to meet those objectives is important," he said. "You must also have good execution by the cast." Garner said the secret of a good rehearsal is "unhindered freedom." "Unhindered freedom," Garner said, "is the one night that you c o m e out and everything just clicks together." Besides the acting, the all-important sets were planned and constructed. The setbuilding c o m m e n c e d five weeks before the opener, but mental planning began in October. The set progressed from an envisioned design to a sketched floor plan and front elevation. Next, a "flat," measuring 4 feet by 8 feet by 6 inches was constructed. It was combined with other flats and painted to yield the finished product. The flat is the basic piece to any set and can be reused for other productions. The technical staff included nearly 40 people, most of w h o m were students dividing their time between set-building and classes. There was little time for serious workers to participate in other activities. The majority of the crew were volunteers w h o considered the experience valuable

enough to devote their time and effort to their work. The challenge of building effective scenery and costumes involved late nights for the more dedicated students. Elmer Soden, a speech professor in charge of the production staff, said a good carpenter is not necessarily a good set builder. "The scenery has to be lightweight, yet it has to be sturdy enough so it won't shake or vibrate," Soden said. "It also must last for the run of the show." Soden said the carpenters k n o w h o w to build sturdy scenery, but the weight is often a problem. Costume designers entertain the s a m e problem. Costumes must be lightweight yet lasting. Effective lighting was the next consideration. A n actor's work becomes useless if the stage is not well-lit. Proper lighting can create a desired m o o d or suggest a time, and both of these are essential in the success of the play. Work, organization, discipline, technique, and talent when sewn together produce a tapestry called drama. O n e without the other is incomplete, but when "everything just clicks together," it produces more than a past m e m o r y . It produces a present masterpiece fit for judging by an opening night audience. — Paul Stoltzfus

Director David Allison watches the actors closely during a practice session, making notes of any necessary changes. David Hel

He was to live with us and stay in the church and work. H e had been dry for a couple of days and it looked like he was really starting to m a k e it," O'Neill said. "He w a s spending time in the Bible everyday. H e w a s beginning to pray

with us and I really saw s o m e signs of growth." O'Neill w a s optimistic. The pastor had told O'Neill to keep an eye on Mike and not to let him out of his sight for two or three weeks. O n Saturday, the fourth day of Mike's stay, he asked O'Neill if he could go visit his wife w h o lived a couple blocks away. Mike was supposed to c o m e back to the church at 6 p.m. for a prayer meeting with the stu-

dents. At 8 p.m. O'Neill received a call from Mike's wife. He never even m a d e it home. "He just couldn't handle it. Once he got outside and saw his friends, the temptation was too m u c h for him," O'Neill said. Failure taught O'Neill a lesson that summer. "I was thinking that a few Bible verses and s o m e prayer would help him. Discipling a person to maturity in Christ is (continued on page 42)

Team members were also given the responsibility of discipling those reached for Christ through individual Bible studies. Here Mike Sweigart leads a man through a Bible study aid.

a life-long process, especially a heroin addict," O'Neill said. Working in Philadelphia proved more humbling than glamorous for O'Neill. "It hurt. I realized I had failed to understand the drawing power that the sin of a heroin addict had," O'Neill said. "It so captivates a person." For the third consecutive summer, the inner cities ministry has been operative at LBC. M a n y success stories can be told about people getting saved. But for every-

one that finds Christ, there are so many, like Mike, that are still searching. Last s u m m e r on M a y 24, 130 students left LBC's c a m p u s to minister in four metropolitan cities: N e w York, Detroit, Los Angeles and Philadelphia. O'Neill directed the Philadelphia team, Dave Early headed up N e w York's team, Harry Walls took students to Los Angeles and Wilson Green and his group covered Detroit. Dave Fleming and Dean of Students Ed Dobson directed the financial and spiritual

matters of the teams. The inner city ministry w a s financed by m o n e y raised by Dr. Falwell and the students. Pastor T o m Mahairas sparked the idea of evangelizing the cities when he spoke in an L B C chapel service during the fall semester of 1980.

Summer teams occasionally held street meetings their cities. Here Jenny McCracken, Mike Pfau, Bo Hippey and Dennis Anderson sing as the crowd gathers in Philadelphia.


Dr. Falwell shared with Mahairas his dream of planting churches in the major cities. Since O'Neill had taken groups of students to N e w York City before, Dr. Falwell appointed him the director of the project. O'Neill interviewed students w h o were interested in working in the cities and chose those w h o showed a "desire to grow in the Lord." Probably the most difficult problem for the students last s u m m e r w a s trying to get people to open up to them, according to

O'Neill. The people seemed impersonable. Yet, at the s a m e time, the younger people seemed to be receptive to the students. "Younger people tend to be responsive," O'Neill said. The students had to deal with other problems as well. Living so closely with each other caused occasional tension, so the students exercised two to three times a week. They had devotions for 1V4 to 2 hours each morning. After lunch they visited door-to-door, went street and park witnessing and took surveys. The girls did "a

masterfull job" of cooking, according to O'Neill. During the evenings, the students got involved in the ministries of the church in which they worked. Surprise visits from Dr. Falwell, Dean Dobson, Dr. Ed Hindson and Dave Fleming would always boost the student's morales. They also enjoyed skits, parties, banquets, swimming and other activities for leisure. Parting time at the end of the 11 weeks proved to be "tear jerking" for most of the students. Most of them hated to see it end. After two years of directing the inner cities ministry, seeing people saved and seeing people walk away without Christ, this is what the ministry has done for O'Neill: "It helped m e to see the world and to see the need to evangelize our generation for Christ." O'Neill and his wife, Sterling, are leaving L B C to serve as missionaries in the Philippines. O'Neill shares Dr. Falwell's burden for church planting. He would like to see the churches themselves become more involved in winning and discipling people for Christ. After all, there comes a time when L B C students leave the cities and m a k e their w a y back h o m e or to school. According to O'Neill, inner city ministries are worth it because "churches are the hope of America." â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Elaine Etheridge

Hearty joggers endure more than any postman

Rll in the n a m e of exercise 1 he furor of physical exercise m a y have died d o w n recently, yet the exhortations to exercise can still be faintly heard. O n e type of physical fitness which remains popular is jogging. The L B C c a m p u s and surrounding highways have bec o m e popular courses for joggers. W h a t makes these joggers endure the cost or the mental conditioning or the physical agony of jogging? Jogging, as most other sports, is excellent for people w h o enjoy spending money. Clothing designers and running shoe manufacturers are capitalizing on ambitious beginning joggers. The standard gray sweat pants and sweat shirts are n o w old fashioned for the vogue jogger. The latest styles feature bright flourescent colors. Of course, these colors must be coordinated with socks and running shoes. Besides clothes, the running shoe or sneaker is the basic piece of equipment for the jogger. Considering the number of brands on the market, the all-important decision of choosing a style and brand is enough to discourage s o m e insincere joggers. Most will say their particular brand is the best, while all others are inferior. N o matter h o w good the running shoe is, most joggers must face another basic expense â&#x20AC;&#x201D; medical bills. Where would runners be in their ongoing battle with blisters if it were not for band-aids and vaseline? Blisters are as c o m m o n to runners as sneezes and coughs are to colds. Shin splints are another anethema to committed joggers. Then, of course, there is the ailing student w h o inches his w a y into the classroom. Other students empathize as the student slowly lowers his body into the chair, while grimmacing in pain. All joggers, at one time or another, face the dreaded sore muscles. Every m o v e becomes a chore, and after sitting through a 50-minute class, the pain returns as the student rises to m a k e the arduous journey to his or her next class period. It takes 10 minutes to get to the next class, even though it's just across the hall. O n e of the more favorable aspects of jogging, some say, is the benefit of mental conditioning. Dogs, hills, weather, and potholes all affect a jogger's life. Picture a healthy, spry jogger running at a leisurely pace along a tree-lined street. Suddenly, out of the corner of his eye, a lumbering dark brown form lunges toward the street. O n e quick glance doubles the jogger's heart rate as the snarling dog rushes from the yard.

44/Student Life â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jogging

S o m e runners take great pride in boasting of their running speed. N o wonder they boast, running several miles with barking dogs nipping at their heels is an excellent w a y to increase speed. But if a jogger can deal with the constant fear of savage dogs chasing him, he can withstand anything. Joggers can contend with running two or three miles every day at the same boring pace, over the s a m e monotonous course. Another good mind conditioner for the serious jogger is the steep hill. The hill can separate the sincere from the insincere and the serious from the undedicated jogger. Even the average person standing at the bottom of a hill would hestitate and eventually sneak away if told to run up the hill. The serious jogger, on the other hand, rises to the challenge. Every bone and muscle in the jogger's body pleads for the jogger to stop climbing, yet he will not. The jogger is psychologically calloused and runs all the w a y to the top, resisting all temptation. Of course, when the jogger gets to the top, he enjoys a few m o m e n t s of satisfaction from his accomplishment and then falls over from exhaustion. This is also a part of the physical agony. Seasonal joggers must deal with the hindrances of weather. In the summer, after running several miles, the jogger has to peel his tongue from the roof of his sticky, dry mouth. In the fall and winter, if the jogger is not slipping or falling on wet leaves or ice and snow, he is not exerting himself. A wetweather runner in the spring increases his agility. Often, he must dash out of the w a y of a wall of water sprayed from a passing car. Potholes take m a n y an unsuspecting jogger by surprise. A runner can judge his "success" each year by the number of twisted ankles he avoids from roadside curbs and potholes. The perils of jogging affect the pocketbook, mind and body, yet jogging's popularity is emphasized each day as students take to the streets to run and run and run. So, if you have considered the other options of physical exercise, and you are still serious about jogging, remember the risks and "take heed lest ye fall." â&#x20AC;&#x201D; David Helt and Paul Stoltzfus

ith spirits somewhat dampened by the early morning hour and the chilling rain, students gathered in the L B C Multi-Purpose Center for one of the featured addresses of the "Understanding Politics Conference," February 9, 1982. A s the preliminaries were quickly executed, a wave of excitement engulfed the audience. Dignitaries hurried to their places as the introduction was made. In one sweeping m o v e m e n t the crowd rose to greet the former Polish Ambassador Romuald Spasowski and his wife, Wanda. O n December 20, 1981, Warsaw's most senior diplomat, requested and received political asylum in the United States. In his statement m a d e at the State Department

in Washington Spasowski said, "A state of war has been imposed upon Poland, a state of war against the Polish people." This was not just another formal announcement of an envoy's defection. It was the cry of a man's heart as he realized his efforts to save his treasured homeland were in vain. "A cruel night of darkness and silence was spread over m y country," he said. Reading from a handwritten statement, Spasowski had said, "I shall not have any association â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not speaking about representation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with authorities responsible for this brutality and inhumanity." Now, the ambassador stood before the Liberty Baptist student body momentarily

The gravity of his message and the dramatic decision to defect to the U.S. had etched lines of concern in the face of Ambassador Spasowski.

Underneath a shimmering flag, Romuald Spasowski pleaded with an audience of 4.000 in LBC's Multi Purpose Center to show strong support for freedom lovers everywhere

struck speechless by the w a r m reception that greeted him. It was the first public speech Spasowski had given since resigning from what was termed as the "most distinguished diplomatic career in post-war Poland." "The time will c o m e in the not too distant future when in your hands, in your minds and hearts, the destiny of this great

country will be shaped" began the ambassador, directing his c o m m e n t s to the students. The Spasowskis shared Polish history and personal experiences as they lectured on the value of freedom. For 36 years they worked for the Polish people through a socialistic government. Then c a m e a time when they could m a k e "no more compromises with our conscience." He explained the events building up to the defection of him and his wife saying, " W e cannot be silent." "The longing for freedom by the Polish people is overwhelming," said Ambassador Spasowski. "In our genes and in our veins w e feel the indomitable spirit of freedom." Spasowski said that it was Poland's Christian faith that has kept the hope of freedom alive within the hearts of the Polish people. " W e intend to fight for free Poland for as long as w e live," he vowed, adding, " W e intend to do everything that is in our power to add to the strengths of this great country." Mrs. Spasowski joined her husband in reminding the audience of the privileges enjoyed by the free world. She also shared with the students the kind of persecutions students might face if attending a Polish University. "Faith in God is the biggest strength in life," she said. " W e must win because God is on our side." In her closing comments, Mrs. Spasowski stated, " W e will do everything in our power to keep this free world really free." The ambassador concluded his remarks with a message to the students from the imprisoned Poles w h o participated in the struggle for freedom. "If these people were allowed to speak, they would say they would rather die than live in bondage. Because freedom, goodness and truth are, and always will be, the most precious values." Truly, those attending the lecture were inspired and encouraged by the people w h o had given so m u c h to gain the freed o m s which Americans so often take for granted. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lois Bazen

Regular chapel services allowed students to be

Challenged and informed 1 hree times each week the L B C MultiPurpose Center became an auditorium where students and faculty gathered to hear speakers ranging from pastors to Christian businessmen to national figures. Every Wednesday an especially prominent national figure spoke. L B C Chancellor, Dr. Jerry Falwell, updated students and faculty once a week and brought a message each Wednesday. LBC's 1981-82 chapel services included such m e n as evangelist J a m e s Robison in September, 1981. Robison's sermon w a s entitled " W h o are the Anointed? and included an illustration of eagles living like turkeys. Robison said, "The problem with you as Christians and church people is you don't k n o w w h o you are. You are righteous in Christ and you don't have to live defeated in sin. "I believe with all m y heart when you discover w h o you are and where you're to function in this body of Christ, you will discover the place of the anointing in your life," Robison added. Pastor E.V. Hill, from Los Angeles, Calif., along with saxaphonist Vernard Johnson, were in chapel in November. Johnson thrilled the crowd with his renditions of favorites such as "Amazing Grace," " H o w Great Thou Art" and "The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power." Hill's sermon, entitled " O n The Road T o The Pigpen," dealt with the importance of Christians not settling for second best. In December, 1981, former President Nixon aide and author of the best seller, "Born Again," Chuck Colson, spoke to students and faculty. Considered one of the most powerful m e n during the Nixon years, Colson had been called "Nixon's hatchet man," and has spent over seven months in prison due to the Watergate issue. It was in prison that Colson became a Christian and, when he was asked to write an expose on Watergate, he took the opportunity to write about his conversion. Since then Colson has organized a ministry to prison inmates. "I could never get used to the horror of humanity dying," Colson said relating his first impressions of prison life. "They would just lie there on their bunks sleeping, day-in and day-out." In line with this, Colson also noted that failure of our institutions, even with all the m o n e y spent on rehabilitation, stresses

that only God's w a y succeeds. He went on to challenge the students saying that they exist for either the world or for God and that they must m a k e a choice. "Being a Christian means laying your life down for Christ's purpose," he said. "It means w e turn away from the past and the ways of the world with the desire to live God's way." He then told a story of a friend living in a prominent area of N e w York City w h o w a s mugged one night before entering his apartment building.

Dr. Francis Shaeffer said in a February 1 chapel service that our generation, where the dominant concept of final reality is humanism, has no answers for any of the basic questions of life. Schaeffer defined this concept of final reality as the idea that silent energy or material has existed forever in s o m e form and is shaped by pure chance. "You must get it stuck in your head," he said, "they have no answers for the basic questions of life. It is not just a happen stance, but a reality. Mathematically and inevitably, they cannot have answers for the basic questions of life if this is the final reality."

T h e JudeoChristian ethic, according to Schaeffer presents a world view based on the existence of an infinite personal God, whose character becomes the moral law of the universe. "What is in line with this character is right, and what is out of line with this character is wrong," he said. "God stands there as the final reality in total contrast to mere material or energy shaped by pure chance." He pointed out that with the Christian world view the idea of inalienable rights of the Declaration of Independence suddenly makes sense. He continued by saying that this w a s in the mind of the Founding Fathers when they formed these documents. O n this basis, he said, one can fight issues like abortion. O n this basis life has intrinsic value.

"The Christian view gives the answer to these things and not the other world view," he said. He concluded by adding that all the questions of the farmer, the shipyard worker, as well as the intellectual in the university, are answered by the Judeo-Christian ethic, and that the humanistic concept of reality offers no answers for these s a m e people.

McKasin said. Y o u must go back to the basic premise of the matter before you accept the philosophy." According to Mrs. McKasin, m a n y teachers do not realize the part they are playing in changing children's values. These values can be shaped simply by the methods and materials used in the classroom. Mrs. McKasin urged students to realize that "humanism and Christianity cannot exist side by side, but they are mutually exclusive." She said students must be aware of the teachings in order to effectively combat the influx of these humanistic principles in education. O n April 26, O w e n Brad Butler, board chairman of Proctor and Gamble, spoke to students and faculty. Corporations exist under a privilege granted by society and therefore cannot ignore society's demands, said Butler. Corporation leaders have a responsibility to consumers, employees, shareholders, the country and the community but, he said, they cannot neglect their personal conscience. "Corporations are not just pieces of paper. Corporations are groups of people w h o cannot and must not check their personal conscience at the door when they walk into the office," Butler said. He said corporation leaders must be careful not to misuse their economic power in decisions about boycotting television programs. "The use of economic power to suppress the right of free expression, is a real threat to this country," Butler said. William C. Brennan, Ph.D., noted author and lecturer on h u m a n holocausts spoke at L B C on April 23 on the parallels in philosophies, semantics and ethical relativisms of Nazi Germany and contemporary America. Brennan demonstrated the similarites in reasoning used for the extermination of innocent h u m a n beings. Dr. Brennan said that the most dramatic departure from the Hippocratic Oath took place in Nazi Germany. H e went on to say that now, 35 years later, medical doctors are doing the same thing in the practice of killing innocent people through abortion. In his lecture he described the killing of thousands of children in the Nazi concentration c a m p s by m e a n s of the injection of poison directly into their hearts. He then

compared this practice with a contemporary medical report, where an unborn twin afflicted with Down's Syndrome was killed in the w o m b by the strategic insertion of a needle into the baby's heart and its blood being drained. He also explained h o w the "semantic gymnastics" of the Nazis m a d e it possible to look at the Jews as sub-humans and killing as "evacuation". He compared this to our contemporary usage of the term "birth control" and said that the principles of it are leading to the point where it will really m e a n "death control." Dr. Brennan concluded his lecture by challenging those in attendance with the goal of illustrating these parallels to the people in the medical profession and the law makers.

T h e grand finale For most of the students, M a y 10, 1982, was just another day. But to a certain group on campus, it was not. It was graduation day. Preparations for this grand day began as freshmen as each student considered a major and chose the classes required. Each year the goal of graduating became more and more significant. Finally, the student passed the magic number of credits and he or she was classified as a senior. Memories of the last year m a y always be more vivid because the seniors realized this was their final year. N o w the day that the seniors had awaited was finally here. The graduates smiled nervously, as they marched into the L B C Multi-Purpose Center. The ceremony began with a word of prayer from Dr. Sumner W e m p .

A s Liberty strived to reach N C A A Division I-A status, tougher competition brought both victory and s o m e disappointment. T h e football team experienced disappointment as they struggled through a 1-9 season. Basketball, under the leadership of head coach Jeff Meyer, allowed us to taste victory as the exciting season and the terrible disappointment of the defeat in the NAIA district championships had an impact on all of our lives. Minor sports, such as Softball and men's cross country, also left a winning mark on the year as their influence became greater during the season. Sports at L B C during 1981-82 strived for greater heights as it impacted upon us all.

Football


A record breaking season /Ylthough there were strong individual accomplishments, costly turnovers told the story as the Flames struggled through a 1-9 season, their most difficult in the nine year history of L B C football. Despite numerous turnovers and inexperience, individuals turned in m a n y bright performances as hard work reaped s o m e rewards. A n NAIA division record that is still alive is the Flames' four year consecutive extra point total. Sophomore Mark D e M o s s hit 14 in as m a n y attempts during the season to extend his personal string to 46 and keep the team streak alive at 93, a college division record. That translates into three consecutive seasons without missing a kicked extra point. Also in the kicking department, junior Mike Forslund punted 63 times during the season for 2,484 yards. Forslund averaged 40.2 yards per kick and became the first Flames' punter to average 40 yards in a

year. Senior running back Greg Mosely led the Flames' offensive ground attack, rushing 150 times for 876 yards and four touchdowns. Mosely finished his career with 2,199 yards rushing, placing him second on the all-time L B C rushing list behind Chip Smith. In the last g a m e of the season, Mosely claimed NAIA national offensive player-of-the-week honors with his 300 yard rushing performance against Evangel College. Mosely became the first L B C athlete ever to be recognized at the national level. Chris Patterson, senior wide receiver, pulled d o w n 34 passes for 593 yards and four touchdowns which left him with three L B C receiving records. Patterson ended his career with 86 receptions for 1,742 yards and 15 touchdowns. With the youthful team facing their toughest schedule ever, mistakes hampered an otherwise credible performance.

The strong competition forced 36 Flames' fumbles, 22 of which were recovered by opponents. Flames' quarterbacks combined for 28 interceptions which were returned for a total of 341 yards. The Flames' coaching staff had the monumental task of rebuilding the Flames' offensive and defensive lines. All but one of the starters from the 1980 offensive line were gone and the Flames only returned two of their starting defensive linemen. According to the coaches, there was an abundance of talent but lack of experience proved to be important.

J A M E S M A D I S O N at Liberty, 36-14: The Liberty coaching staff called on n e w talent to try and pull the team out of its slump. Freshman George Johnson, carrying the ball for the first time in his college career, rushed for 61 yards and two touchdowns to earn offensive player-of-the-game honors. "George performed very effectively and consistantly in his first collegiate contest," said Dowling. "He gave us the power that w e needed and did a good job blocking."

record 86 receptions for 1,742 yards. Even though the Flames finished the season with a 1-9 record, they put on a respectable performance in spite of the plague of turnovers that haunted them throughout the season. Evangel Coach Denny Duron related a week before the LBC-Evangel contest, "I'm impressed with Liberty Baptist's defense on film. They have major college athletes. Offensively I feel that Liberty Baptist is underrated. They've played an incredible schedule. Their record is not indicitive of Brian Sullivan

h o w good they are. A s stated before, inexperience was a major factor in the troubles the Flames experienced during the year. Dowling commented, " W e knew w e were young and had a great year last year. I knew it would be tough." Another problem for the Flames, especially toward the end of the season was, understandibly, morale.

Senior running back Greg Mosely rushes for another gain against Evangel College. During the game Mosely rushed for 300 yards and three touchdowns for which he received NAIA national offensive player-ofthe-week honors.

"Jacksonville State was the low spot," said Dowling, "the key games were the first two which w e needed to win. D u e to the fact that w e didn't win early, w e didn't generate confidence and enthusiasm." The Flames, while hitting several rough spots in their progress toward their eventual goal of N C A A Division l-A competition, have shown that they will be able to take these hard knocks and bounce back while continuing to build for the future. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tracy Figley with Brian Sullivan

T e a m effort VJiving the students at L B C major college quality cheerleading w a s one of the goals set before the 1981-82 edition of the Flames' cheerleading squad. Experiencing a season of both victory and bitter defeat, the L B C cheerleader's goal w a s to provide a quality of cheerleading of which the school could be proud. The goal w a s "to become collegiate, which I think in the end w e did," said junior Ronna Nardo. "Our goal w a s to be able to go to a place like J a m e s Madison and look good, to know what we're doing." The squad, led by junior co-captains Paul Kurth and Lori Niznik, was cut from 14 members to 10 members this year. T h e squad attended an N C A A cheering clinic at Virginia Tech during mid-August. This year's cheering routines included a variety of flips, stunts, and pyramids during the games. A s the Flames struggled through a 1-9 football season, the squad worked hard to remain enthusiastic throughout the season. Phil Kelly, a senior from Akron, Ohio,

w h o has been a part of the squad for the past 2'/2 years, stated that, "the main goal of the cheerleaders w a s to motivate the crowd to be enthusiastic. Through the crowd's enthusiasm, the coaches want to win games." Kelly said that because of this goal, the cheerleader's success depended on the team's success. Kelly added, " W h e n you lose five games in a row, then face a Division l.school, h o w do you get motivated?" Nardo said the player's attitude toward the cheerleaders w a s also important. " W h e n you know the team wants you there, it's not hard to get motivated. I think it's an individual thing too," Nardo said. She added that crowd participation was vitally important to their success. She said the basketball g a m e against Tennessee Temple was the highlight of the year because "the crowd was behind us." Another highlight of the year to her was meeting n e w people through traveling with the teams and cheering. The success of the cheerleading squad rested solely on the group's ability to work as a team during the games. Whether or not the team was winning on the floor, another team was also competing — a team competing for the enthusiasm of the crowd. Nardo said that in order to accomplish the necessary teamwork, the squad had to work toward the c o m m o n objective of building support for the team, regardless of whether the team was winning or losing. "It takes a lot of work," said Nardo. "If each cheerleader is not successful individually, then we're not successful together." — Brian Sullivan and Paul Stoltzfus

It's not just for kicks Consistency and character building was the main emphasis of the season as the Liberty Baptist College soccer team ended the year with an 8-7-2 record and, for the first time, went to the N A I A playoffs. Second-year coach Bill Bell stressed that apart

from using the sport as a tool for evangelism, the team's goal from the beginning was to m a k e it to the playoffs. "Within a year they (the players) had reached something that they had never reached before," said Bell. "I stated that

our goal was to reach the playoffs and achieved that." Losing their season-opening game against High Point College, 4-1, the Flames then went to Chattanooga, Tenn., for the Tennessee Temple Invitational Soccer


Tournament. In their opening round g a m e against Central Wesleyan College, the Flames upset the top-seeded team, 3-0. Central only managed to m a k e one attempted goal shot against the L B C defense. Liberty then went on to defeat Tennessee Temple in the tournament championship game. Injuries to two key players at the beginning of the season put an extra burden on the rest of the team. But, said Bell, "Oddly enough, that's when w e achieved good results." Bell refused to single out any individuals

In the opening round of the playoffs, fourth-ranked Liberty faced the playoff favorite, Rutgers-Camden University. After playing the g a m e to the end of regulation time, the score w a s tied at 00. In overtime Rutgers-Camden scored two goals ending a hard fought g a m e and the season for Liberty. Of m u c h greater concern to Bell than winning was the impact the team had on those with w h o m it c a m e in contact.

O n e story that Bell recalled from the season was, after Guilford had defeated L B C during the regular season, two L B C girls walked up to the Guilford players and congratulated them on their attitude and sportsmanship. Bell recalled that the team m e m b e r s were shocked that fans from an opposing team would do such a thing. In the post-game presentation of the gospel

that Bell gave the team, 12 players accepted Christ as their Savior. "The fans can turn a team on or off," said Bell. "Those girls were instrumental in leading 12 players to the Lord. T h e team m e m b e r s were ready to hear; they were prepared." Bell stated that one of his eventual goals is to have a team that the student body would be proud of. But then he asks the

question, "What does the student body look for in a team? Hopefully one that would glorify God." There were few changes in this year's team as far as strategy, according to Bell. " W e can have the fastest team in the world, but if they can't pass, they can't play. W e are still working on the basics." Regardless of whether or not the team was successful during the year as far as competition, Bell felt that success must be measured by more than scores or statistics. "You are in a nation that is geared for winners," related Bell, a native Briton. "If you're not a winner, you're a loser. I think that w e can still lose games and be winners. I think that w e have to show something to the student body that they can appreciate." Even though the team succeeded in their goal of reaching N A I A post-season competition, Bell feels that they have not achieved the consistent results that are necessary for a championship team. "I would say that as a coach you're never satisfied. I will never be satisfied with one, two, or three performances. I'll be satisfied with one, two, or three good seasons. Consistency is not one or two games." â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Brian Sullivan

A rebuilding yeor 1 he 1981-82 women's volleyball team struggled through what was termed a rebuilding year as they posted an 18-19 record and finished fifth in the V A I A W State tournament. The youthful 11-member team, m a d e up of seven freshmen, gained valuable experience and, according to the players, were more unified than any previous team. The team also had to adjust to a new coach. First-year coach Beth Glass, an

L B C alumna, returned to take on the coaching responsibilities. The team's troubles began early in the season when three players, w h o would have been seniors, did not return to school. The team's only senior member, Peggy Edgreen, turned out to be the most valuable player and earned the Best Defensive Player award. The rest of the team consisted of two juniors, two sophomores and seven freshmen. At least two of those freshmen helped

establish a strong foundation for the future. Kim Kelly, from Windom, Minn., and Patti Lunn, also from Windom, were two standouts on the young team. Kelly was voted most inspirational by teammates. Lunn earned Best Offensive Player honors as a powerful spiker.

Freshman Kim Kelly (25) sets the ball toward the net as Patti Lunn prepares to return the set. Kelly and Lunn graduated from the same high school and combined as an effective set-and-spike team during the year.

T w o highlights of the season were victories in the h o m e tournament against Eastern Mennonite, George Mason University and Virginia Commonwealth University, and a victory over Radford University later in the season. The Lady Flames hosted the match at mid-season and soundly defeated Eastern Mennonite (15-9, 15-4), George Mason (1510, 6-15, 15-5) and Virginia Commonwealth (16-5, 15-4). Coach Beth Glass said, "Our players worked very well together. The play in that quad-match was the best this year and

showed our w o m e n what they were capable of." The second highlight w a s a late-season win over Radford University. In an away trimeet, the Lady Flames battled Radford through five games. This was the first time LBC's volleyball team had defeated Radford. The Lady Flames edged out wins in the first two games, 15-13 and 15-11, but Radford fought back to win the next two, 815 and 9-15. The young team did not give up though and pulled out the fifth game, 16-14. Junior Julee Sparks and Edgreen combined for

what Glass called "the most effective serve and spike g a m e put together this year." Long range results m a y have been overshadowed this year because of the losing record, but with most of the players already adjusted to a n e w coach, the Lady Flames' volleyball team can continue to build for the next season. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Paul Stoltzfus

Perfection is n o surprise It w a s a season with no surprises as a dual meet record of 8-0 and the Flame's first trip to the NAIA Nationals in Kenosha, Wis., highlighted the men's cross country season. With the level of competition unchanged from the 1980 season, the team dominated most of its meets. The Appalachian State University Invitational and the N A I A Nationals were the only meets in which the team did not c o m e away with a first place finish. The team finished sixth and 24th respectively in those two events. A first place finish in the Campbell University Invitational opened the season with positive hopes. The invitational included Division I Campbell University and the Citadel. Junior Rick Wilson broke a school record for a 4-mile course with a time of 20:05. The old record was 20:40, also held by Wilson. The 22m e m b e r team split into an A and B squad following the meet. "This gives everybody a chance to do better in a particular race," head coach Jake Matthes said. "It also makes the A team hungrier in the bigger races." Leaving the top nine runners at h o m e to prepare for the Virginia Ten-Miler, the B team went on to defeat Eastern Mennonite College, Christopher Newport College, and H a m p d e n Sydney twice to bring the team's dual mark to 4-0. The Appalachian State Invitational matched the runners against 13 teams including Virginia Tech, Appalachian State, James Madison University and Marshall University. The A team placed sixth in the meet behind James Madison. Ivan Solero and Rick Wilson, both returning m e m b e r s of the team, placed 14th and 15th respectively. The team proved its depth by capturing first place in both the N C A A Division II and III State meet and the N A I A District 19 meet on the same weekend. The B team, led by second place finisher Robert Holter, took first place in the State meet. The squad •finished with three runners in the top 10. The A team w o n the District 19 meet by placing four runners in the top five finishers. Rick Wilson, Ivan Solero, Roger Richards and Dan Stoneburner finished second, third, fourth and fifth respectively.

Four more dual meet victories sealed an 8-0 record for the Flames and marked the first undefeated season ever for the L B C men's cross country team. The victory in the District 19 meet marked the first year an L B C cross country team was eligible for the national event. L B C athletics only gained acceptance into the NAIA January 12, 1981. Running in 22 degree weather against a 25 mile-per-hour headwind proved to be a hinderance as the team placed 24th out of 36 teams. Freshman Dan Stoneburner placed 105th as the Flames' top finisher. Senior Ivan Solero and junior Rick Wilson, along with freshmen Dan Stoneburner and Kevin Hopkins, paced the team, according to coach Matthes. Solero was the only departing senior out of the top five runners. It was a year of no surprises but a year with encouraging results as the L B C men's cross country team took another step forward. — Paul Stoltzfus

Freshman Dan Stoneburner (front) and senior Ivan Solero lead the way against Virginia Military Institut Solero went on to win the race with a time of 25:50 while Stoneburner finished third.

The pack may be congested at the beginning of the race but the LBC runners were often alone at the finish line during 1981. In the season's final meet against Virginia Military Institute, 11 LBC runners crossed the line ahead of the first VMI contender.

The team opened the season with a trimeet at James Madison University.

After a 14th place finish in the George Mason Invitational, the team ran their best race of the year, according to Coach Hopkins.

A n eighth place finish in the Region II meet, ended a disappointing season for the Lady Flames. Sophomore Renee Reimer completed the season as the team's number one runner. "Renee really c a m e of age as a distance runner this year," Hopkins said. "She bec a m e our leader as far as development of the team was concerned." Freshman Ginny Watson, a transfer from Central Michigan University, finished as the team's number two runner. Team-

mates selected her as Most Valuable Runner and Most Inspirational at the end of the season. "Ginny brought a n e w dimension to the team," Hopkins said. "She brought a vocal enthusiasm." Sisters Elaine and Anna Fisher captured the third and fourth spots on the team. Hopkins said Anna's performance was the biggest surprise during the season because she had never run cross country prior to this year. She w a s selected as Most Improved. Hopkins expects next year's team to m a k e a better showing because the schedule will be revised within the Division II level. "We'll try to put ourselves at a solid Division II level next year where w e can be more competitive," Hopkins said. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Paul Stoltzfus

Potentially dangerous 1 he ability to play to their fullest poten-. tial can determine a team's success or defeat. T h e 1981-82 Lady Flames never reached their full potential, according to head coach Linda Farver, and finished the season with an 11-17 record. "This season w a s a roller coaster ride," said the sixth-year coach. " W e were expecting to turn around last year's 10-18 record, but w e could not grab hold of consistency." Youthful players, working to fit into the team's system of play and the disabling of three probable starters meant that m a n y times three out of the five players on the floor were freshmen. Only four players re-

turned from the 1980-81 team and two oi them were not able to play full time due to injury. The team w a s completed with three transfer students and four freshmen. All of the freshmen turned out be "good investments." Malynda Hammersley, an AllState high school player from Indiana, earned the most improved award at the end of the season. "Malynda's determination and hard work payed off in the improvement of her skills," coach Farver said. P a m Dwyer, Penny Ervin, and Patricia Harris also turned in solid performances as freshmen.

Jeff Meyer


A a e w took I f one word best describes the thinking of the Flames' new head basketball coach Jeff Meyer, it is priorities. Labeled intense by some, professional by others, Meyer displays a dedication to everything he does that is equaled by few. "The priorities in m y life," said Meyer, "are m y relationship to Jesus Christ, m y family, and m y job. Beyond that I don't get involved with m a n y things." Meyer, the son of a factory worker, grew up in Reynolds, Indiana, a town with a population of about 500. The third of six children, Meyer was raised as a Lutheran. It wasn't until Meyer was attending high school and his basketball coach Bob Overm a n suggested that he go to a Fellowship of Christian Athletes c a m p did he hear the gospel and become a Christian. After leaving high school, Meyer entered Taylor University where he first played on the junior varsity basketball team and later started as a guard on the varsity team in his junior and senior years. During his senior year the team missed the chance to go to the NAIA National Tournament playoffs in Kansas City by one point on a last second basket. Upon graduation from Taylor, Meyer took a teaching job at Landmark Christian High School in Michigan City, Indiana. Besides being a full time teacher, he also was responsible for building an athletic program from nothing. "The strange thing," Meyer related, "was the fact that I was the soccer coach and the cross-country coach at the same time â&#x20AC;&#x201D; two sports in the same season." Even though it presented s o m e unusual challenges to Meyer, the experience proved to be worthwhile. "I wouldn't trade those two years for really anything," Meyer commented, "I think that they were very valuable to m e in terms of m y perception of the importance of education in society and h o w it affects young people." After two years at Landmark Christian, Meyer felt that if he was to reach his eventual goal of coaching at the college level, he would have to return to school and get his master's degree. He approached Pur due's head basketball coach Lee Rose about a graduate assistant position on his coaching staff.

cants had written about the position. "I was at the right place at the right time," Meyer said. "He showed m e a stack of 100 to 150 letters that people had written. He told m e that I was the only one w h o had c o m e in to see him personally about the job. I w a s always told that if you don't k n o w anyone, then you aren't going to get in; however, Coach Rose offered m e a golden opportunity." While at Purdue, Coach Rose and the Boilermakers went to the final four of both the N C A A and the NIT, along with capturing the Big 10 title. Meyer's coaching responsibilities included scouting and film exchange with the team during both the regular season and the tournaments. The whole experience proved to be a valuable lesson for Meyer and it greatly influenced his style and methods as a coach. "I went in as a young m a n wanting to coach. I didn't know what coaching involved. I c a m e out with a real understanding of the time and commitment it takes.

I think the most difficult thing to overcome w a s an attitude of 'we're losers' to a winning attitude." In early February Liberty Baptist approached Rose about a recommendation for someone to be the n e w head coach at LBC. Rose recommended Meyer. In commenting about Meyer, Rose related; "Jeff Meyer is an outstanding individual whose professional experience of coaching in the Big Ten and the Sun Belt conferences, and of going to the finals of the N C A A and NIT, pale in comparison to the contribution he has m a d e through his moral and ethical leadership in our program." Meyer had sought a coaching position at Liberty twice before, but both times the position wasn't available. " W h e n I sought Liberty Baptist College, it wasn't the proper time and consequently it didn't work. But w h e n Liberty Baptist The philosophy is first you creep, College asked Coach Rose for a recommenthen you crawl, then walk, then dation, he recommended m e .

cause I believe w h e n you admit to success, complacency sets in. Whenever complacency sets in, then you are d o o m e d to whatever you do. W h e n you get complacent you're headed for failure." Talking to Meyer, one will immediately notice his w a y of calculating every move, every remark before acting on it. Speaking for the most part in a slow, soft voice, he raises his voice if he wishes to emphasize what he feels to be an important point. A s k Meyer a question, expect to receive a dissertation. Meyer (for example) about life's priorities; "Living for the Lord is more important than anything a person could possibly do. It has eternal value. Y o u know, eternity begins now, it doesn't begin when you die. W h e n you work, you set goals, you discipline yourself, and when you're obedient to the W o r d of God, then you'll achieve really whatever you desire. Meyer about psyching himself up before a game; " M y job is not to psyche myself up, it is to understand all I can understand about m y opponent, his personnel, what they do, and get our players ready to play them psychologically. W e mentally prepare them, w e physically prepare them. Psychologically w e use instruments to motivate them."

Meyer about the coaching profession; "Coaches are in the coaching profession because they thrive on competition. I believe that good coaches work hard, prepare well, have superior intelligences and are highly creative. I think that you can be a good coach and still not have a positive affect on the world. However, I could ask, are you a good coach if you don't have a positive effect on the people around you? I don't know." Meyer about his philosophy that first you creep, then you crawl, then walk, then run; "It's a philosophy of life that applies to building a basketball program. Y o u creep w h e n you're an infant, 7-8 months old. Liberty Baptist basketball w a s in the fetal stage w h e n I arrived last March. T h e respect that w e had a m o n g our peers w a s ... it still is, very limited. People don't respect Liberty Baptist basketball. I really felt like the program lacked continuity, it lacked support. "Right now, I believe we're creeping, m a y b e getting ready to crawl. H o w long is it going to take to get to the running stage? I hope by somewhere in the next year. Ideally it would happn this year. W e could win the next two, next three g a m e s and be at Kansas city. I'd say then we'd be running." "He likes to pull one out," Flames Sports Network commentator Jerry Edwards pointed out after the playoff g a m e

against Norfolk State, "to force them to play his kind of basketball." His kind of basketball is intense. Meyer spends most of his time during the game kneeling in front of the team bench. He i shouts c o m m a n d s to his players only w h e n he feels that it would serve his purpose. Rarely one to let his emotion show, 1 Meyer occasionally will allow his intensity 1 to escape. Sparring with a referee over a I call that he feels is unfair or yelling to one 1 of his players, "Hey, what w a s that?" and I pointing to a spot on the floor where the J player had m a d e a particularly serious error, Meyer's voice strains as it grows hoarse towards the end of the game. His voice is not as strong as the beginning of the g a m e but his instructions carry the s a m e impact as ever. A s the team went through what Meyer termed the "Chinese torture tournaments," the N A I A district 19 Playoffs, his intensity peaked at the N A I A district tour- 1 nament championships. March 3, 1982, Meyer and the Flames are in Hampton, Virginia. There are 15 seconds left to play in the championship game and the Flames are d o w n 46-41. Meyer calls time-out and huddles his team around the bench. T h e night before the Flames had defeated defending champion Norfolk State 68-66 in overtime. His emotions are obvious as he strains to establish a strategy to pull out the victory, i.e. Meyer style. A s the clock runs down, it becomes obvious that the Flames are not going to be able to recover. W h e n the buzzer sounds, Meyer, rubbing his neck, starts to walk toward the locker room. He stops suddenly, turns around, and walks back to the Hampton Institute bench. He stops briefly to shake hands with the rival coaches, then turns back toward the locker room. As he m a k e s his w a y through the crowd, he walks increasingly faster. Reaching the locker room door, he throws it open and walks inside. A s the door slowly closes, he pauses by a bulletin board before going through the second set of doors into the locker room. The locker room is silent.

1 think they'll r e m e m b e r us for quite awhile/ It was a season that had all the makings for a "once upon a time" fairy tale, except instead of a happy ending, the fable ended ironically with the hero killing the dragon, only to be slain by the mouse. T h e hero in the story, the m a n in the gray suit, was the Flames' new head basketball coach Jeff Meyer. Taking over a team that had a 5-19 record the previous season, Meyer took his traveling troupe of dragonslayers and accomplished an amazing turnaround by going 15-11 and taking the Flames (pun intended) into NAIA District 19 post-season competition in the team's first full season of eligibility. Signing on as head coach as of March 23, 1981, Meyer had more than a few outsiders staring at the turnaround he accom-

plished with what had been a mediocre ball team. Even though the change in the team's play was obvious, Meyer claimed that, " w e implemented the same patterns, the same philosophy as before." But when asked what to expect from the team in the upcoming season, Meyer characteristically quipped, " w e will have a new look." " W e will be playing teams this year that w e have not been successful against in the past," related Meyer early in the season, "this presents a great challenge to our team as w e prepare for the season ahead." Rising to that challenge, the Flames built a strong team on both returning players and incoming recruits. Even though Meyer started as head coach long after the prime recruiting season, he still had unusual success in picking up players that would accent the team. Junior Steve Isaacs goes over the top of a Hampton Sophomore Eric Gordon and junior BobInstitute guard as he attempts to score in the NAIA by McKinnon, both transfers, proved to be District 19 championships.

Gunn, w h o m o v e d into a starting position at mid-season, led the team with 48 steals, while Weber shot 61 percent from the floor. Even though Meyer was unusually successful in picking new players, it was still returnees Steve Isaacs, and Greg McCauley w h o were the nucleus that the team was built around. Isaacs, playing at the post position, led the team with an average of nine rebounds per game. McCauley, a guard, had a 77 percent free throw average and led the team with an average of 15 points per game. . . ,.,, r

Winning ways L-ver since the beginning of collegiate sports, coaches have c o m e face-to-face with that agonizing decision: what to do with a team that has just c o m e off a spectacular winning season and has lost too m a n y starters? Well, coaches only have three choices: 1) they can retire on a winning note and leave the problems to another coach; 2) they can struggle through a losing season and claim they had a young but gallant team; or 3) they can take a very young team, upgrade the schedule to the toughest one yet, and proceed to win anyway. LBC's wrestling team simply cannot

seem to break with their winning ways, no matter h o w difficult things look. Even though they lost seven of their ten starters and upgraded their schedule to include three Division I schools — two ranked in the top 20 of the country — they c a m e away with eight wins against four losses. At h o m e they were undefeated. "In the beginning w e were skeptical because this was our toughest schedule yet," said Coach Bob Bonheim. "Since w e had lost so m a n y starters w e were, what you might call, pessimistically optimistic." The Flames' varsity, consisting of five freshmen, two sophomores, a junior and two seniors, took on the likes of sixth ranked University of North Carolina, The Sophomore Howard Johnson applys pressure to a U.S. Campbell University wrestler.

The team's four losses came, of course, in their matches with the biggies — U N C , Navy and Pittsburgh. They also lost by two points to Carson N e w m a n on what Coach Bonheim termed a "questionable call."

A s in all other athletic programs at L B C , the wrestling team has two goals — winning their matches and winning people to the Lord. "The Lord blessed our efforts," said Bonheim. " W e had 35-40 saved and w e witnessed to countless others. "Our wrestlers are fairly well received when they witness; other wrestlers usually listen."

For L B C , it was a surprisingly satisfactory season in m a n y ways. It was a pleasant surprise to win more than they lost. It was great to receive national attention throughout the season. It was good to find several very promising young wrestlers to fit in the mold of graduated All-Americans Jesse Castro and Aaron Thomas. But, p e n haps best of all, in terms of wrestling, it was best to keep looking forward to next year. If Coach Bonheim was pessimistically optimistic about this year, he must be overjoyed with anticipation for the future. — Rick Cumings

to the University of Jacksonville and Stetson University. Both teams blasted the Flames in three out of the four games, 0-6, 5-19, and 0-17. The closest the Flames c a m e to victory was in the second g a m e of a three g a m e series against the University of Jacksonville. The final score of that contest was 10-13.

The Flames' problems were compounded by a factor that is becoming a c o m m o n dilemma for the majority of L B C teams, that is, the continual upgrading of playing schedules. N C A A Division I schools proved to be the black spots on the Flames' record. Competing in 28 Division I

games, the Flames lost 15. Playing, by comparison, 12 games in the NAIA, including six in tournament play, L B C was defeated once. The Flames competed against such stalwart Division I teams as Virginia Tech, the University of Virginia, and James Madison University. L B C lost twice to Tech, once to UVA, and once to J M U . "The better the teams are that you play," said Worthington, "the better of a club you become. Our fellas have met tough competition and are ready to meet just about anybody." Libarty probably has only one more season in the NAIA. The Division I N C A A athletic directors will vote this January on LBC's proposed m o v e into Division I. If the directors approve the step up, the Flames should become a Division I ball club going into the 1984 season. Pitching proved to be the biggest flaw in the Flames' armor during the season. Losing several players due to disciplinary action during the first semester, LBC's depth on the m o u n d was, shallow. While Liberty's pitching flourished during the NAIA District 19 and Area 8 tournaments, it was, m a n y times, sluggish during the regular season. Towards the last third of the season the team's average E R A was a mediocre 4.94. Even with the power L B C pitchers displayed during the tournaments, the

average was still 5.00 going into LBC's final g a m e of the NAIA World Series. Senior right-hander Doug Smith w a s the team's ace during the season. Moving from what had been primarily a reliever position in the previous season, Smith proved to be the team's primary asset on the mound. He finished the season with a 9-7 record and an E R A of 3.73. Smith's record can primarily be accounted for considering that he started in the majority of LBC's losing Division I contests. In NAIA Area 8 play. Smith pitched a four-hitter against St. T h o m a s Aguinas, a g a m e in which Smith struck out the first five of six batters he faced. "He's a good pitcher w h o throws strikes," said Worthington after the contest. "Today his fastball, curve, and change were all working." Smith ended the season as an N A I A Honorable Mention All-American and w a s drafted in the 28th round by the Minnesota Twins. LBC's hitting was definitely weaker than the previous year's, but still the team had a respectable average of .311.

" W e didn't hit well and w e didn't pitch well," related Worthington. "This year w e just didn't have the team to win it. Last year w e had a great team, but w e were n e w to the whole thing." LBC's second appearance in the Series has once again raised the visibility of the program across the nation. Liberty has already had four players go to the pro ranks in the past nine years, and two were added to that number at the end of the 1982 season. In addition to the Twins pick of pitcher Doug Smith, left fielder Renard Brown was a fourth round draft pick to the Seattle Mariners. Brown hit .377 in his three year career at LBC. He also had 15 h o m e runs, 2 0 triples, and a total of 129 RBIs. " W e drafted him for his speed and contact at the plate," said Seattle Mariner scout Rip Tutor. "He has above average speed." "I w a s really hoping to be taken a little higher," said Brown. "The Mariners really hadn't expressed an interest. The Twins, Dodgers, Red Sox, and Brewers had." Even with the quality players L B C had, the prospect of Liberty returning to the Series didn't look optimistic. Yet the turnaround between the regular season and the playoffs provided enough inertia to push the Flames into the Series, in spite of, or m a y b e because of, their struggles. With a strengthening of the team for the next season, it will be interesting to see h o w the Flames enliven the program in what could be their final season in the NAIA. — Brian Sullivan

A heart to win state title would again be denied them. L B C was the top seed in the doubleelimination tournament but dropped the first g a m e 1-0 to George Mason in 11 innings after a controversial call by the h o m e plate umpire in the bottom of the seventh. After defeating the University of Virginia, 6-1, L B C again faced George Mason and again the g a m e was decided by one run, 32, in extra innings. In the bottom of the eighth inning, a walk and a single put George Mason runners on second and third base with only one out. Mason's second baseman then lined a single to right center field to squelch the L B C hopes. Despite the disappointing losses, coach Barb Dearing told the team after the tournament, "You have no reason to put your heads down. They squeezed by you. "Go ahead and let all the pressure out now, but keep your heads up high," Dearing added.

Dearing said the prevalent attitude w a s "team before self." "It was a desire to be soul winners and servants, and a desire to do whatever they had to do to uplift Christ," Dearing said. Although individual accomplishments were not emphasized, there were several bright contributions to the winning season. Dearing cited six w o m e n as specific reasons for the successful season; Karen Booker, Kathy Needham, Gail Keith, Michele Agnew, Marnita Stoltzfus, and Robin Potera.

The success of the program has been attributed by Yarborough to the students themselves. "They've m a d e it work. They are willing to go along and participate under adverse circumstances." A student's academic responsibilities were a prime concern to Yarborough. For that reason any student that participated in the intramural program must have had a 1.5 average before they were eligible for competition. "I don't want a kid to flunk out because he's doing intramurals all the time," he commented. Yarborough, w h o is currently working on his doctorate at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, is writing a book about intramurals that should be off the presses at the end of the s u m m e r of 1982. He shares s o m e strong feelings on the subject. "It's very important that w e do have intramurals," said Yarborough, "because it affects so m a n y of the students. T h e underlying purpose of intramurals is participation, to give the student w h o either doesn't have the time, or the grade point average, or the ability to compete in athletics an outlet so he can participate." â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Elaine Etheridge and Brian Sullivan Karen Snow, a junior from Hampton, Va., waits for the pitch after a base hit advanced her to second base.

B a n d finds pot of gold 1 he moving song, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," from the Broadway musical, "The Wizard of Oz," was the theme song of the 125-member Liberty Baptist College Marching Flames Band. The "Spirit of the Mountain" dazzled the crowds with their disciplined marching, synchronized maneuvers, and beautiful music. The band's first performance c a m e at the half-time show of the first football game. T o get ready, the band members returned to school one week early. During that week, Ray Locy, in his fifth year as director, led the band in 8V2 hour practice sessions. A n 8V2 hour rehearsal makes for a long day, as any band m e m b e r will confess, but the sessions were necessary and worthwhile. O n Saturday, September 19, a cool, clear night, after the public address announcer bellowed "You m a y n o w enter the field," the band performed their first show. They began quite uniquely. Instead of the customary Sousa type number, the band played a slow arrangement of "Amazing Grace." After the opening number, Julie Nelson, the field commander, mounted the stand and, with an energetic jump, signaled the start of Tschaikovsky's "Picture at an Exhibit."

While playing, the band maneuvered in designs ranging from arches, diamonds, sun burst, and other intricate angles. The highlight of the performance c a m e when the flag corps unveiled the rainbow flags which were concealed under the regular school flags. The band ended their first performance with "Over the Rainbow." By the end of the year, the band performed nine times. The performances included four h o m e games, a half-time show at Furman University, the Kaleidiscope Festival, the Lynchburg Christmas Parade, and the Anti-ERA rallies in Washington and Richmond. T o add variety to the original program, the band practiced six days a week during football season, as they incorporated new maneuvers and numbers. Locy pushed the band hard during rehearsal. "You have to practice in your sweatsuits to be in our band," fifth year band veteran Steve Kerr said.

Field commander is a demanding job, but Julie met the challenge and maintained the beauty and poise of a true lady throughout. Because of the band's enthusiastic sideline support, Tom Dowling, head football coach observed, "the band's good for an extra touchdownandahalf at every game."

white and blue uniform to lead the marching band, but that's only one facet of this unique person. Born and reared in Huntsville, Alabama, Julie has the poise and beauty of a Southern Belle but also the friendliness and sense of humor found in a down-to-earth country girl. W h e n asked about her family, Julie answers in her rich Southern accent and her characteristic giggly humor, "I have an older brother, and I have a m o m and dad, and we've had animals. Presently w e have a dog — a m 1 supposed to say this stuff?" Julie's favorite pastimes are listening to good music and playing her guitar. Her other interests range from cross-stitching and cosmotology to horseback riding and waterskiing. Julie's band career began in the sixth grade. The first instrument she mastered was the clarinet, but over the years she has added the flute and saxophone to her repertoire. Julie attended Lee High School in Huntsville where she w a s the drum major of a 300-piece marching band her junior and senior years. She enjoyed her high school band, but along with the years of experience c a m e "band burnout." A s she planned for college, Julie had serious doubts about whether she would join LBC's band as a freshman. Julie's arrival at L B C is as unique as Julie herself. Julie heard about it from a friend in Alabama w h o attended LBC. L B C interested Julie so she completed the initial application forms during the s u m m e r after graduating from high school. A s the s u m m e r months passed, Julie's desire to attend L B C diminished, and at one point she had decided not to come. About three or four weeks before school started her mind suddenly changed. "It w a s so weird. God knew they (the band) needed somebody. At first I didn't want to c o m e to Liberty," she said, "then all of the sudden I did." With no time to waste, Julie completed the final applica-

tion forms by phone in time to enroll for the fall semester of 1980. Julie's unique story doesn't end there. She arrived on c a m p u s and was greeted by the frustrating, mind-wracking registration process. While in registration line, a returning student introduced himself. A s their conversation proceeded, the young m a n told Julie about the band. He asked her if she had any band experience. After Julie related her high school band experience the young m a n said "Wait! Are you Julie Nelson?" Being a n e w student and knowing absolutely no one on campus, Julie was flabbergasted by the question. She found out later that the young m a n had seen her application in the band office. T h e young m a n encouraged Julie to audition for drum major. Although she had decided not to join the band, Julie couldn't pass up the opportunity. She auditioned and subsequently became the first freshman drum major in LBC's history. Julie's freshman year as drum major was very successful and this year she leads the band as field commander. Her major duties include coordinating the flag squad, leading the pep band, and writing programs for half-time entertainment. Practicing six days a week and writing programs on Sundays is hectic and burdens o m e at times, but Julie finds her work rewarding and fulfilling. Julie regards being an example her most challenging responsibility. All the pressure and stress of being an example culminated during the J a m e s Robison Crusade in the fall of 1981. Julie realized she could never be a good example until her relationship to Christ w a s sure. Julie received assurance of her salvation during the Crusade and has diligently attempted to be the example she knows G o d wants her to be. After all she has gone through, Julie says, "It's still beyond m e w h y I wanted to come but I'm not complaining." LBC's not complaining either, Julie. — Jeff Kull

Because of the band's high level of professionalism, student pride in "The Spirit of the Mountain" increased. O n e student said, "I went to the football games mainly to see the band." Another said, "You can tell that bunch practiced a lot of hours." Besides the vast amount of practice hours, there were also m a n y other reasons for the band's success. The addition of trumpets to the brass line helped immensely. Steve Reitenour, percussion director, arranged fantastic cadences for the drum section.

While m a n y choirs are addicted to mediocrity, the Chamber Choir is

Committed to excellence /although Ron Banta has been a m e m b e r of the Chamber Choir for only one semester, he is totally sold on the Chamber Choir as a learning experience. "Every vocalist music major should be in the Chamber Choir. There's so m u c h to learn, and Mr. Renas has a way of making you reach your potential while enjoying it at the s a m e time." The Mr. Renas he referred to is Kim Renas, a graduate from Eastern Michigan University, w h o is n o w working on his doctorate at the University of Maryland. Because of Renas' diversified training in the field of fine arts, he led the Chamber Choir in a repertoire that included classical music from the Renaissance to the 20th Century, sacred concert music, and gospel music. If variety is the spice of life, then the Chamber Choir is definitely a hot pepper. The choir sang songs such as the melodious "Choose Something Like a Star," written in commemoration of the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana; a most

difficult piece to perform, "lo Pur Respiro;" and the delightfully amusing song, " A Little White Hen." While the type of song to be performed m a y have been unpredictable, the quality of the choir's performance remained consistent. Their sound was always disciplined, well-balanced, and smoothly regimented. O n e student compared the Chamber Choir to marching soldiers. "If you look at the individual soldier while he marches, he looks rigidly disciplined, but if you look at the entire squadron, their movements flow smoothly. Each choir m e m b e r is also intensely well-disciplined, which makes the Kim Renas was able to devote more time to the Chamber and Oratorio Choirs this year because of the addition of Glenn Litke as director of Concert Choir.

This year the choir performed Handel's "Dettingen Te Deum", Britten's "Rejoice in the L a m b " and Vivaldi's "Gloria." Renas has established a high and extremely demanding goal for the Oratorio Choir. In the next few years, Renas wants to mold the choir into the best program found on any Christian college campus in America. In both the Oratorio Choir and Chamber Choir, Renas stressed that while m a n y singing groups are addicted to mediocrity, These two groups must strive for perfection in every aspect of performance for the glory of God. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jeff Kull

Because they focus on the needs of people, the Asian and Brazilian Smite teams are

Going God's way I

f the ministry of the Asian Smite team could be s u m m e d up in one word, that word would be "people." A s the 14 singers and three technicians traveled across the United States on weekends during school sessions and on summer mission endeavors, they reached out to all sorts of people, but they extended the s a m e message to each, a message of hope because of Jesus Christ. Jim O'Neill was the director of the group this year. His interest toward missions and specifically toward missions in the Far East was quite evident. O'Neill left Lynchburg in June to become a full-time missionary in the Philippines. O n e student on the team, Ronda Skinner credits O'Neill with teaching her and the other m e m b e r s of the team an important lesson. "Our leader has helped us see where w e fit into world evangelization, whether it be in praying, giving, or going," she said. Performing concerts across the nation carries with it a great responsibility. Not only must the group be completely sincere, but they must be effective tools in God's hands. Another m e m b e r of the team, Jim Agens, said, " W e sing a song 'Jesus Is Real in M y Life.' People really do look at our lives to see if Christ is real or not. W e have to show it's true by our words and actions." In addition to weekend concerts, the Asian Smite team sang in three concert tours. During spring break, and also the last two weeks of May, the team traveled throughout the Northeastern section of the country. Their greatest opportunity to minister occured during the month of June. The entire Asian Smite team traveled to the Philippines. There the singers performed concerts in churches, schools, and public parks. Because people are the focal point for

the Asian Smite team, the group's greatest joy is to see a person receive Christ. T h e singers will never forget people like Don, a 7-year-old boy from a broken home. A team m e m b e r witnessed to him in a city playground. In the midst of other squealing children, D o n received Christ as Savior. His heart seemed to burst with joy and the smile on his face proved it. Jim Agens related another unforgettable situation. " W e were in a very small church. While w e were singing the invitation, a m a n the congregation has prayed for for two years c a m e forward to be saved. It's things like this that makes Smite worth the effort." Through the ministry of the Asian Smite team, the members of the group realized that God can use any surrendered person to m a k e a difference in the lives of people around the world. Another team that traveled three of four weekends every month during the school year and for more than a month in the summer, the Brazilian Smite T e a m carried their message across the

team traveled to yet another congregation to perform an evening service. Taxing as the schedule might seem, all eighteen of the members survived the year. W h e n asked if the busy weekends affected his grades, second year team m e m b e r Chris Walker replied, "Not really. In fact, it has caused m e to use m y time

more wisely. I've had m y best grades when I've been busy with Smite." Probably the main reason Walker and the other team members became more disciplined while in Smite was because of the fine example of their leader Doug Achilles. Leader of the Brazil team for two years and n o w director of all Smite Ministries, Achilles exemplifies the disciplined and consis-

tent life of a m a n w h o truly belongs to the Lord. During the s u m m e r of 1981, the team ministered in Brazil for 28 days. A s the team traveled from village to village and city to city, they performed a hectic schedule of concerts in churches, shopping malls, high schools, and colleges. In an average week the team performed 20 concerts. T o accomplish this the team left their h o m e s away from h o m e at 8:00 a.m. each day and returned sometime after sunset. S o m e days were busier than others. While in a city named Campinas the team performed nine concerts in one day. Concerts consisted of six to eight songs which were all sung in the Portugese language. With the aid of an interpreter, the Smite Singers gave testimonies between the numbers. The different missionaries w h o traveled with the team concluded the concert be preaching and giving an invitation. During last year's 28-day mission, the team recorded approximately 2,700 professions of faith. Nobody ever promised the Smite Singers that their trip to Brazil would be easy, but all the team members agreed that the results of the s u m m e r campaign overshadowed any hardships they experienced. Looking forward to the six-week campaign planned for the s u m m e r of 1982, Chris Walker said the team's main goal while in the last month of school was to get ready for the s u m m e r strain. " W e as a team need to be spiritually prepared so w e can win the trust of the Brazilian people by our words and our actions." Perhaps Ray Sentell, bus driver and "daddy" of the team embodies the purpose of the Brazilian Smite team best. A s the team logs mile after mile, Sentell faithfully witnesses to other drivers over the C B radio. He talks to all types of people in all different places but he always ends his conversation by saying, " M a y the good Lord ride with you, and if you're not going God's w a y then you're going the wrong way." â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jeff Kull

A meaningful message

Through the medium of television the Sounds of Liberty share a meaningful message 1 he Sounds of Liberty have become synonymous with Dr. Jerry Falwell and the "Old Time Gospel Hour." But their television singing ministry is only part of the group's hectic schedule. Not only are the Sounds expected to sing in three or four services each Sunday

at T h o m a s Road, they also travel one of two weekends of every month performing in local churches, banquets, and other special television events. T w o of the more memorable events were the March for Life Rally in Washington, D.C., and a rally for Christian schools in Nebraska. At the March for Life Rally, the Sounds performed a patriotic program before 50,000 people. O n a freezing November day in Louisville, Neb., the singers appeared with Dr. Falwell on the lawn of Faith Baptist Church, a church closed by the Nebraska Department of Education. Because of the frightfully cold weather, Vanessa Davis, a m e m b e r of the Sounds, fainted. Although Vanessa can laugh at the situation now, she said, "I felt terrible for quite awhile." She quickly added, "1 went to a Christian school and I want every American to have that privilege. I'd go out again and sing in the cold weather if I had to." Obviously being a m e m b e r of the Sounds of Liberty demands m u c h work and m a n y hours, but Greg Rice justifies his participation by saying, "I'm in the Sounds because of the ministry aspect. Through the medium of television, I can witness to

people I would never contact in any other way." Phil Black, sound engineer for the group, said, "Being in the Sounds has taught m e to relate to people better. It has also shown m e the importance of team work. The group is like a family and every m e m b e r must help carry each other's burden." Working with the Sounds has allowed its m e m b e r s to view the school's ministry in a unique perspective. Lyn Derks, the

Singing, traveling, and representing L B C m a d e it

A n unforgettable year V»jonsisting of eighteen students w h o take one year out of their education, the Liberty Baptist College Singers effectively promoted the cause of L B C and most importantly Jesus Christ across the United States. Throughout the year the group visited approximately 4 0 states, traveled nearly 80,000 miles and performed over 200 concerts. Since this grueling schedule can sooner or later effect every m e m b e r mentally, physically, and spiritually, on days off the team enjoyed visits to Sea World, Disney World, the Grand Canyon, and other national attractions. T h e team also enjoyed waterskiing excursions and bowling outings. T o combat spiritual fatigue each m e m ber read six inspirational books and m e m o rized the book of J a m e s throughout the year in addition to personal study. Existing in the confines of a Greyhound bus for long hours is very taxing and patience easily expires under these conditions. But the team survived admirably as they entertained one another with stuffed animal and puppet collections and by playing various games. Most of the singers quickly realized that sleeping w a s a great w a y to pass the long hours of traveling. This year's team chose Galatians 6:10 for their theme verse. "As w e have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all m e n , especially unto them w h o are of the household of faith." T e a m leader Bob Gallina instilled in every team m e m b e r a sense of obligation to serve each church and h o m e they visited throughout the year. Unique to this edition of L B C Singers w a s the "Friends of Liberty" banquets; and the arrival of a n e w director. Along with Dr. Falwell, the Singers performed in m a n y banquets throughout the year. In these "Friends of Liberty" banquets the team performed the "Look U p America" multi-media presentation and Dr. Falwell raised support for the school and preached. During the first semester of this year, Randy Rebold, w h o had been director of the team for 4 Vi years, left the team to accept a pastoral position in a California church. It w a s difficult for the Singers to say good-bye to Rebold, but they soon adjusted to the n e w leadership of Mick Vigeulle. The L B C Singers, public relations team

lemorable is a good word to describe the Concert Choir's 1981-1982 season. In the minds of the choir members are m e m o ries of concerts, outings, late skates, Bible studies, and spiritual growth. Probably the most predominate m e m o r y for both choir members and the student body w a s the arrival of a n e w choir director, Glenn Litke. Litke c a m e to L B C from O m a h a , Nebraska, having graduated from Tabor College and the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Throughout the year, Dr. Falwell hailed Litke several times as a great asset to the Fine Arts faculty. While groups like the L B C Singers, Youthquest, and the Sounds of Liberty provide a contemporary approach to Christian music, the Concert Choir shared with the Chamber Choir and Oratorio Choir in the development of a classical sacred music repertoire. Members of T h o m a s Road Baptist Church will remember the Concert Choir because of the selections performed every Sunday morning during the 8:15 a.m. service. Other performances and concerts included an October concert in the Lloyd Auditorium, the premier of "The Love Story," an Easter Cantata by Don Wyrtzen during Super Conference, the Christmas Tree, and a Spring Concert. Assisting Litke in planning concerts and activities was the Choir Cabinet. Paul Hamm o n d w a s president; Melody Parson, vice president; Donna Smith, secretary; and Linda lllsley, librarian. In the Spring semester Kevin T h o m a s and Roger Dail served as president and vice president, respectively. Other activities making the year m e m o rable for the choir were a fall get-acquainted party, group Bible studies, and the sponsorship of the Sadie Hawkins late skate

during Valentine weekend. A n unfortunate m o m e n t which every choir m e m b e r will remember occurred during the fall picnic. While hurriedly trimming tree branches to roast hot dogs and marshmallows, Litke severely cut his left hand. T h e cut required 12 stitches, but Litke managed to continue choir rehears-

Youthquest reaches out to world's greatest untapped resource Liberty Baptist College has always had a commitment to youth. From the days of Youth Aflame to the present ministry of Youthquest, it has always been a high priority of L B C to train young people to reach out to young people. Youthquest represents the youth department of T h o m a s Road Baptist Church and L B C as they minister to youth throughout the United States. Every weekend the m e m b e r s of Youthquest traveled to local churches presenting a musical program and speaking with the young people in each church. T h e group's initial aim was to initiate a vision a m o n g

the young people. The vision Youthquest inspired was a vision of growth and power. Growth, because out of one small group the entire youth population can get turned on to Christ, and power, because God can preserve the vision long after the singing group returns to campus. Traveling loses its glamour after 13 hour bus rides, no dates on weekends, and no time to relax or catch up on studies. W h e n asked w h y he m a d e the sacrifices to be on Youthquest, Roger Ott, a youth minor whose future goal is to start a youth camp, said, "I travel in order to mature. The experience I gain both from m y leaders and

Youth the kids will be beneficial to m y future ministry." Others on the team express the same sentiment. W h e n Mark Vissers was asked if being a m e m b e r of Youthquest w a s a worthwhile experience, he replied, "Youthquest is worth every minute w e invest because of the changes in kids' lives. The letters and telephone calls from the kids really show that w e are having an impact." Because over 85 percent of those w h o m a k e a commitment to Christ will do so before the age of 21, Youthquest's field is white unto harvest. This is the story behind Youthquest's ministry-dedicated young people carrying the cause of Christ to the largest untapped resource in the world, youth. In the words of one of the group's songs, each child or young person is reminded that "You are a promise, you are a possibility." Youthquest challenges the young people of today's generation to reach their potential by following God's way. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Harold Eddy and Jeff Kull 1981-82 Youthquest: Kevin Winters, Chris Brown, Lynn Powell, Don Black, Julia McCrory, Stephanie Howard, Michael Stewart, Mark Vissers, Ivy Benson, Dave Pickett, Anne Scott, Darryl Flake, Gloria Moulder, Roger Ott, Leonard Diggs.

Because LBC has a commitment to youth, the college started a new singing group called Youthquest. The group traveled extensively on weekends as they ministered to church youth groups across America. Peter Cannata

Fantastic

As usual, Vernard Johnson (Dean Dobson) overwhelmed the audience with his magical saxophone. Dr. Falwell (Dr. Hindson) claps to the rhythm of "Soon and Very Soon."

O n e of SGA's finest efforts was the Christmas festival. According to students it was fantastic af\ major contributing factor to an active, exciting campus experience is the Student G o v e r n m e n t Association. Throughout the year, Liberty's Student Government Association provided entertainment which fulfilled each student's need for "weekend regrouping." S G A continued past programs such as late skates, late bowls, weekend movies, and skiing trips. With more students on campus than ever before, the Association also attempted to schedule more and better quality movies, such as "Son of Flubber," "Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again," "Ordinary Guy," and "The Black Hole." At least one activity was scheduled for every weekend, and on some weekends S G A sponsored several activities. In addition to regular activities, S G A also initiated new special events. By far, the most spectacular event was the Christmas Festival. Instead of holding the Christmas banquet in Roanoke and charging admission, S G A waived the fee and held the banquet on campus. Vice Presidents Mark Stewart and T o m Vigneulle spent m a n y hours in planning the banquet, which featured a steak and Seafood Newberg candlelight dinner. Following dinner, Dead Ed Dobson and Dr. Ed Hindson starred in "The Old Time Hour" which w a s part of the Christmas spectacular held in the Multi-Purpose Center. Steve and Maria Gardner provided music and Dr. Jerry Falwell appeared as Santa Claus. Other entertainment included cartoons, three singing chipmunks (Jill Pruitt, Rick Vigneulle, and Mick Vigneulle) and the Sounds of Liberty as carolers.

Just as Dr. Falwell and Emmit Godsey are an unbeatable twosome at Thomas Road Baptist Church, so Dean Ed Dobson and Dr. Ed Hindson were unbeatable as stars of "The Old Time Hour.'' Peter Cannata

"Weekend regrouping"

Another addition to the S G A calendar was the first annual junior/senior banquet on April 20. Appropriately set in the luxurious Hilton banquet hall, the banquet provided a "touch of class" for the upperclassmen and their dates. Perhaps the most enjoyable event of the year was the M a y Day Festival which was hosted by the unusual and unpredictable g y m teacher, Roy Yarborough. O n a clear, calm spring evening, nearly 500 students gathered on the lawn between the academic buildings to enjoy music and personal testimonies given by fellow students. Not only did the students enjoy some weekend relaxation, but the concert also encouraged everyone as final exams approached. W h e n asked what he wanted to be remembered for, Vice President Mark Stewart singled out the Olympathon. Nearly 275 students ran laps to raise money for future special projects to be sponsored by S G A . A s of June, the promotion had already raised $9000. S G A succeeded this year in being a major force behind student activities. Next year's association, under new President T o m Barnes, will have a hard act to follow. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Harold Eddy and Jeff Kull

Forensics T e a m


They have reason to be proud By Cathy Collins. Reprinted by permission from the Lynchburg N e w s and Daily Advance / V t h o u g h they receive less attention, Liberty Baptist College forensics team m e m b e r s will tell you they have w o n more contests than the school's football team. They're proud of winning awards at Randolph-Macon College, Washington and Lee, and Appalachian State. But they admit there have been times when a debate judge announced a topic about which they were ignorant. "Those are the times you try to argue logically," said junior Robin Miller as other debaters laughed. And team m e m b e r s usually have well-researched information cards. In addition to debate, forensics includes individual events such as prose, poetry and dramatic interpretation, and extemporaneous, after dinner, impromptu and persuasive speaking. The 20 forensics team m e m b e r s will take better communications skills with them when they graduate, according to team director Cecil Kramer. He said analytical skill learned through debate could be useful in m a n y jobs. Kramer teaches debate, discussion and speech fundamentals at Liberty Baptist. Last summer, Miss Miller and Harold Eddy attended the two-week Arizona Debate Institute to sharpen their skills. Eddy said he became interested in debate because his friends were.

Also, he said, "It gives you the chance to discuss issues with people intelligently, and you get to meet a lot of different people," he said. Karen Burcham wants to be a lawyer. She said debate helps her think quickly. Rick Carmickle is studying to be a preacher, and forensics helps him relate to people. "I also wanted to prove that I could do something on the side," he said. "True intelligence comes through literature," said Doug Hoye, w h o mainly participates in individual events. Individual events do not require the s a m e spontaneity as debate, explained Hoye. Recreating literature, poetry or drama the way the author wanted it done is a God-given talent, he said. T e a m m e m b e r s agreed they have been humiliated by not knowing debate jargon or topics, or simply by botching a line of a p o e m or play. "That's the n a m e of the g a m e â&#x20AC;&#x201D; improvement," said Kramer. Sometimes the tables turn. "It gets fun," said John Pyle. "You go in there and totally humiliate someone else." In competing against schools such as The Citadel, the University of North Carolina, and Duke, the Liberty Baptist team m e m b e r s worried they would not be accepted. However, they said winning earned them respect.

Eddy said an initial roadblock during the competitions is other students' perceptions of a Liberty Baptist student. "You can't be intelligent. W e deal with that constantly." Eddy said as fundamentalists, they also are not expected to support any issues that are non-fundamentalist. Yet overall, Kramer said other forensics teams have been hospitable and supportive of the year-old forensics Flames. Forensics participants prepare for competition almost every day, sometimes working six to eight hours in one day. The group is aiming for the national competitions sponsored by the American Forensics Association and the National Forensics Association. The tightly-knit bunch is determined. " W e have to support each other a lot," said Hoye. " N o one else is going to do it for you."

Harold Eddy and John Pyle gained respect for LBC by defending Creationism aptly. Some William and Mary students who attended the debate have written Eddy seeking dialogue and a different perspective. Brian Sullivan

A growing ministry Mrlr. David Allison, director of the King's Players,firstsaw the King's Players perform at Asbury College in Wilmore, Kentucky, in 1969. "It w a s the first time I'd ever seen Christian drama and it just overwhelmed m e . I felt that night that's what God wanted m e to do," Allison said. This year, Allison's dream to direct such a drama team c a m e to reality when he found himself the sole director of both

teams of King's Players. Mrs. Helen Lloyd, director of the one team, took a leave of absence from LBC, so the two teams merged into one team of 30 students under Allison's direction. Also, instead of being confined to the rules of the drama department, King's Players functioned under the office of the president, Dr. A. Pierre Guillermin. That change has been a definite improvement, according to Allison. The team

n o w has the freedom to travel more weekends during the school year. Last year, the team traveled only eight times while under the drama department. This year the team traveled almost every weekend during the school year. Allison has already scheduled 14 weekend tours and a spring tour for next year. Allison also placed more emphasis on combining music with drama. H e established a King's Players quartet and trio which sang before each dramatic performance. "King's Players will always be an acting group," Allison said. "But w e want to use more music to help get people involved and excited about our productions." But h o w did the m e m b e r s of King's Players adjust to the changes? According to Allison, the students had a good attitude. Even though a change in leadership is hard on s o m e people, Allison felt the group handled it well. "I felt that everybody wanted to work for the good of King's Players," he said. The highpoint for King's Players this year was performing "Once to Die" at T h o m a s Road Baptist Church. "They turned two preaching services over to us. Pastors don't normally do that in a church so large," Allison said. About 20 people received Christ that evening. Even with all of the success and improvements experienced by the group this year, the King's Players also had its share of problems. "The main problem was that w e had too m a n y actors and not enough parts, so w e went to a system of understudies," Allison said. Most college drama clubs would love to have this problem. Allison's goal for the King's Players was for the group to become the most effective Christian drama team in the country. Next year another major change in the group's structure will take place. Mr. and Mrs. Mark Lloyd, founders of the King's Players in 1958 and long-time supporters of LBC's drama department, have created a full-time road team which will present plays across the country for 11 months of the year. Paul Riel, technical director and business manager for next year's road team, said, "The Lloyd's are great people. They've bought a bus and all the equipment and the team can't wait to get on the road." N o w with a team at school and a team on the road, the King's Players have a better opportunity to serve God through Christian drama.

A traumatic weekend W hen the King's Players left on Saturday, April 17, for a trip to Cincinnati, Ohio, little did they realize it was going to be one of the most challenging weekends in the group's existence. The trip started out with everything going wrong. They had to use three of their o w n cars instead of the vans they normally rented, and s o m e of their equipment had to be stored in an uncovered U-haul trailer. It was raining, so they had to put a tarp over the trailer which fell off periodically throughout the trip. Their first scheduled performance was at Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church in Cincinnati. Each car arrived, late, and at various times ranging from 1:00 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. Everyone got little or no sleep, but yet they had to set up for the 9:00 a.m. performance. After the Pleasant Ridge performance, the group headed for John Rawling's church, Landmark Baptist, also in Cincinnati. The performance at Landmark had good results, "but w e still felt like we'd gone through too m u c h trauma for that to be it," Laura Branscum said. The next morning, they performed "Once to Die" at Landmark Christian Schools. They held an hour-long invitation with over 80 professions of faith and 200 students coming forward for other decisions. Each m e m b e r of the group knew then that the rough trip had been worth all the inconveniences. The three cars were driving back to L B C about 8:40 that evening with director David Allison leading the way, Ty Taylor following, and James Garner in his Rabbit bringing up the rear. A s the caravan neared the small town of Point Pleasant, W . Va., Allison noticed that

Part of the King's Players group was traveling in Ty Taylor's Suburban van which skidded into an Oldsmobile Delta 88 near Point Pleasant, W. Va.

the car on the other side of the road w a s coming very fast, so he was watching it closely. "He had c o m e left of center and was not slowing down. I ran m y car and trailer off the road, and just barely, barely missed him." Taylor did not have a chance to stop. He skidded about 50 feet and hit the driver's side of the other car, a Delta 88 Oldsmobile, head on. Allison said, " W h e n I first saw the truck, I thought that Ty, Laura, and Cathy Rawlings had to be dead, because the front was so crunched up. Everyone w a s alive, but Erin Jach sustained four broken ribs and a ruptured spleen, and she needed surgery. Marcia Rankin w a s also severely injured. She had been sleeping on the floor behind the driver's seat when the accident occured. Several of the other passengers fell on her, crushing her arms. It was a hard night because of the fearful possibility that Marcia and Erin would not live through the night. By 4 a.m., Allison got word that Marcia and Erin were in stable condition. "That was one of the happiest m o m e n t s of m y life, when I found out they had both m a d e it through the night," Allison said. All but two of the injured parties returned to c a m p u s by the following Monday. Both Marcia and Erin returned to their h o m e s and finished the semester by correspondence. Looking back on the year, and especially the accident, Allison said, "Basically, w e just had one simple prayer that w e prayed. W e wanted God to use us in all of our services on c a m p u s and as w e traveled. That was the prayer when w e went to Cincinnati, and that was the prayer at the time of the accident, that God would receive glory from it. W e believe He has."


A normal beginning and a normal ending MeLembers of the Selah staff began the year like any other yearbook staff m e m bers would. W e had goals of meeting every deadline and improving things w e thought could be better. W e even thought m a y b e w e could get the books before school began so students could receive them when they returned in the fall. The year ended like m a n y other yearbook staff's. W e were late with nearly everything and the books would not be awaiting the students in the fall. W e still did feel that w e improved s o m e things, and w e realized there were other things which w e could still m a k e better. A young staff and procrastination presented a challenge. Three section editors were freshmen and only one section editor had ever worked on a college book before. W e changed s o m e things in the 1982 Selah. S o m e of the changes were simply for the sake of change while s o m e were personal preferences. In the student life section w e tried to cover main events on campus as well as take a look at some happenings which m a d e an impact on students. W e attempted to m a k e good use of color and for the most part w e felt w e did. The sports section was enlarged to reflect LBC's dedication to a strong athletic program. W e

looked at the new basketball coach and followed teams as they reached for new heights in athletics. Organizations included s o m e color as w e attempted to recognize both new and old groups on campus. Academics took a personal look at s o m e professors and covered special events sponsored by certain divisions. In the classes section w e returned to individual portraits for the first time in three years. The staff averaged around 15 people with the majority being freshmen and sophomores. As usual, it always seemed like w e needed more people, but the job was finished eventually. The year began and ended like any year for most yearbook staffs, but what happened during the year m a d e the 1982 Selah unique. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Paul Stoltzfus

Student involvement in missions 1 his year Missions Club was a changing organization. It remained the rallying and information point for all those interested in world missions, but it also took on a new dimension. From the beginning of the year, the goal of the Missions Club was enlarged to include more student involvement. T o accomplish this goal the club established regional prayer groups which every student had an opportunity to join. Regions which were represented included the Muslim world, Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Prayer groups met once a week to unite in prayer for the countries', people and

Stressing communication, the Black Student Fellowship is

Making a difference I o fulfill the cultural and social needs of LBC's black population, the Black Student Fellowship was created in January of 1982. Mickey Baker, a senior from Abbeville, Ala., was the organization's first president. "I see our organization as a transition group. M a n y of the black students c o m e from big cities and have had no communication with whites," he said. "For m a n y of these students, coming to L B C is a culture shock." B S F combated the feelings of alienation and homesickness by providing fellowship for the black students. T o get the organization started, the group had a party in the television lounge. A s the year progressed, the B S F held meetings twice monthly during the 9:20 a.m. hour. During these meetings, special guests spoke to the organization. Bill Glaze spoke on the importance of using time wisely; Ricky Eason challenged members of the organization to work for Inner-City Ministries, and Dean Ed Dobson spoke on h o w to handle racial prejudice. Probably the most successful program the B S F initiated was the three to four m e m b e r prayer groups. Each group had a prayer leader and met at least once a week to pray for each other's needs. O n Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings, a room in the science building was reserved for members of BSF. Tutors were available to give assistance and to motivate students to form good study habits. O n M a y 1 B S F sponsored a trip to King's Dominion. This experience provided another opportunity for members to enjoy fellowship and to m a k e new friends. According to the constitution, the primary prupose for B S F is to glorify Christ and to minister to the community. O n m a n y Sundays during the second semester, m e m b e r s of the B S F ministered to black congregations as they provided special music and worked in the Sunday School departments. Baker said, " W e as an organization want to overcome any hostilities toward whites that any black might have brought to school with him." Mark Armstrong, Vice President of the organization, said, "Both blacks and whites need to realize that our c o m m o n Christian bond should allow us to enjoy friendship despite our social and ethnic differences." According to Armstrong, the most important thing is for blacks and whites to communicate and begin to understand each other. 160/Organizations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Black Student Fellowship f\

Challenging times In October, L B C Chairman Bryan Kurtz shifted the college political organization into gear by sponsoring an "Afghan Freed o m Fighters Rally." Karen McKay, w h o had recently spent time with the rebel forces in Afghanistan, showed actual films of rebel c a m p s and spoke about the tragic denial of h u m a n rights by Russia. Immediately following the rally, Ray Jones, a Y A F member, informed Kurtz of a major problem within the National Committee. The board of directors experienced a major split and subsequently fired m a n y national staff workers. This placed the L B C Y A F Chapter in a touchy situation. While wishing to remain part of Y A F , LBC, along with m a n y chapters felt a comradery with the fired staff workers. The dissolution of the national staff crippled the L B C Y A F Chapter causing the cancellation of all meetings and special projects planned for second semester. These developments led to an emergency leadership meeting to discuss the opKaren McKay, chairman of the Committee For A Free tions available.

Young Americans For Freedom by foundHere students talk with Miss McKay after the meeting the Action Committee to Save Y A F . ing. In 1981, LBC's chapter of Young Americans For Freedom (YAF) received the Award for the "Most Outstanding College Chapter In America." "LBC has proved itself a leader in the conservative movement," said Y A F National Chairman James Lacey at the 1981 Y A F Convention. "Their membership is composed of literally hundreds of dedicated future leaders for our great country." As the Liberty delegation consisting of Jim Fenlison, Ray Jones, Greg Shaw, Julie Tinman, and Laura Tinman accepted the award, little did they know that one year later the very future of the Young Americans for Freedom, Inc. would be gravely uncertain. Before any of the disconcerting news surfaced, the 1981-82 L B C Y A F Chapter inaugurated a highly successful membership drive. Forty-five members joined the organization of two hundred.

Because of problems within the national committee, Y A F experienced challenging times The ACTS/ YAF organization set major goals and outlined a practical plan for reuniting Young Americans for Freedom, as well as doubling the membership at all levels of the nationally organized group. Ray Jones and Greg S h a w have emerged as the leaders of A C T S / Y A F . They say the plan is scheduled to reach its peak at the 1982 Y A F National Convention in California. Next year the L B C Chapter will be called the Liberty Action Young Americans for Freedom. Instead of the chairman making most of the decisions, the L B C Chapter has formed a six-member board. Ray Jones will be the chairman of the board. Although Y A F has experienced some disappointments and setbacks, it is highly feasible that the L B C Y A F Chapter will regain its position as the "Most Outstanding College Chapter in America" in 1983. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ray Jones and Jeff Kull

Without Stevenson there would be no Friday, but without the English Association English majors would be paupers instead of princes

During the second semester, Dr. Jerry Falwell spoken to junior and senior business majors about the responsibilities of Christians in the business world.

English Association 1 he English Association functioned to supplement the academic offerings of the English department. The Association provided opportunities for majors and minors in English to get to k n o w one another and the professors in the English area. Seeking to attract students to the field of English, the Association attempted to add enrichment and variety to the out-of-class activities of students. Programs sponsored by the Association included literary films and critiques along with fine arts programs and socials. Special speakers included Chauncey Spencer, w h o reviewed the life and work of his mother, Lynchburg poet A n n e Spencer; and Sheldon Vanauken's review of his book, "A Severe Mercy." L B C students and faculty, along with Lynchburg residents, had opportunities to participate in poetry readings and dinner meetings which featured poetry and travels.

Ellen Murrie was one of seven Lynchburg poets to read personal poetry selections to the English Association. Those who attended were transported back in time by her enchanging Arthurian poems. Peter Cannata

Wise businessmen provide business students with

Practical experience l\s the number of Business majors grew to over 300, the Business Association enjoyed its largest membership in LBC's history. With the larger number of students c a m e the greater responsibility of providing each business student with both a practical and theoretical knowledge of the business world. O n e good way the Business Association accomplished these aims was by having established businessmen relate their acquired wisdom gained from years of experience. The Business Association was privileged to have m a n y such speakers this year. Dick Hoskins, a very successful stockbroker, spoke on the future of the stock market and the adverse consequences of debt-ridden society. Rex Angel, a partner in Coopers and Lybrand, gave the students a practical view of the recruiting process. Dr. Guillermin addressed the vital subject of leadership. Dr. Falwell spoke to the juniors and seniors concerning the Christian in the business world.

Perhaps the highlight of the year for the business students c a m e when O w e n Butler, the Chairman of the Board for Procter and Gamble, spoke to the entire group of business majors. This was the first time any executive of his position in the business world has addressed L B C business students. In the fall of the 1982-83 school year, the Business Association will experience a change in membership requirements. In the past, every business student was considered a m e m b e r of the club. Beginning next year a m e m b e r must meet a specified grade point average and pay club dues. This will cause the association to bec o m e a highly competitive group of motivated and dedicated business students. Along with changes in membership, the leadership is planning better meetings, instructional programs, tours of business establishments, and other activities geared toward equipping better Christian leaders for the business world. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jim Rawlings

Business is serious business /Vspects which reflect on the entire college are normally taken seriously within the college. So it is with the division of business at LBC. According to division chairman Dr. M a x Wellman, the quality of a school's business graduates is an instant reflection on a school. "Business is a very severe discipline," Wellman said, "It has to be that way, because if it's not, it can ruin a college in no time." Wellman spoke with a sense of pride as he explained the placement services which the division provides and he talked of practical training which is part of the college's curriculum. He said the division has written to over 700 companies concerning job placement for graduates and has received m a n y replies inviting students to send resumes. Wellman stressed the importance of job placement because of the mindset of business majors. "In business they're more vocational minded," he said. "They're preparing for vocational careers. Of course they want to be employed, so it's important for us to place people." The division's placement program is enhanced further by practical courses such as the senior level corporate finance class. Through the Small Business Institute Program, three teams of students serve as consultants for small business firms suffering problems. Wellman said, "The students are under the direction of professors w h o give clues and direct the program. These students have a lot of knowledge that they can bring to bear and often it's too expensive for the business to hire a professional." The students gain the practical knowledge needed in one of the six different majors offered. The division, which was formalized in 1977, n o w has 510 students

as majors, 163 as minors and graduated 65 students in the class of '82. The majors include accounting, business administration and management, executive secretarial science, finance and two business education degrees in office processes and stenography. The division carried 12 full-time faculty m e m b e r s and

A voice of experience cited Volcker as the reason the inflation rate has fallen. The board chairman also said the people of America have asked for "Reaganomics." He said Reagan has proposed "a course correction in economics." Butler also answered pre-written questions from the business students and addressed practical issues such as h o w to obtain a job or what qualities companies look for when hiring. "The key is h o w close did you c o m e to using 1 0 0 % of the mental and physical capabilities you had," said Butler. "I would urge you to let that be the measure of yourself," he said. "The thing that has always driven m e is not whether I would get recognized, but whether 1 had done m y job to the best of m y ability." Butler's words showed a respect for the American economic system.

Barlow enjoys various responsibilities /Vfter 14 years in the ministry as a university pastor, Dr. Daniel Barlow m a d e the transition into education as a college professor. According to Barlow, the transition was not an easy one because of his success as a university pastor. Barlow, originally from Elizabeth, Pa., said, "As a university pastor, I usually only worked with kids in the youth group and this w a s frustrating to m e . I felt I w a s only working with 5 percent of the youth, and that there were still 95 percent that were not being reached. In teaching, 1 could bring Christian values to m a n y more young people." A n important goal of Barlow's is "to help students see h o w faith and learning can be integrated in their lives." Barlow looks for a real comitment to Christ in a student. If the student does not have that committment, he hopes to help the student m o v e toward that goal. He also looks for a student w h o is "willing to really give themselves to learning and acquiring knowledge." Lastly, he looks for an "ability to relate with other people." A student w h o has these qualities, he

feels, will be well-rounded spiritually, intellectually, and socially. He then hopes that "the student will become a person w h o will m a k e good Christ-centered decisions." Barlow heard of Liberty Baptist College like m a n y others, by watching Dr. Jerry Falwell on "The Old Time Gospel Hour" television program. After watching the program for about two years, Barlow gradually became interested. He liked the fact that Dr. Falwell was solid in his doctrine and that he w a s trying to m a k e a difference in society. Barlow then heard that L B C needed teachers in education, so he wrote to the school and was invited for an interview. In the fall of 1978, he arrived on the c a m p u s ready to teach. Barlow's family supported him in his decision to move. His wife, Wilma, teaches math and computer programming here at LBC. His two sons also c a m e with him. The oldest, w h o is 25, plans to enter medical school to become a neurosurgeon. His younger son, 21, is employed with the Allied Security Company. Barlow, w h o met his wife during a halloween party at Franklin College, said,

" W e always kid each other by saying that w e thought the other one w a s wearing a mask." They dated all through college, then graduated and married on the same day. After his undergraduate work, he went to Colgate-Rochester Divinity School in Rochester, N.Y., and received a master of Divinity in Theology. H e also received a master of arts in education with an emphasis on guidance and counseling. Later he received a doctor of education from Arizona State. In 1975, he went to the University of Cincinnati and did s o m e post-doctorate work in crisis intervention and mental health. H e also worked at Purdue University in the area of learning disabilities. Barlow has served as a dean and associate dean of a college. Barlow's last four years on the L B C campus have not been idle ones. Aside from his regular teaching duties, he has also found time to be involved in the task of writing a textbook for the Education 311 class, Hu-

Barlow has been teaching at LBC for four years and has become accustomed to answering people's questions through answering letters written to Dr. Falwell. Pete Cannata

m a n Development and Learning. T h e tentative title of the book is "Educational Psychology: The Teaching-Learning Process." He describes writing the book as "a pain and a joy." O n the positive side, Barlow said that writing a book is a joy because "I do want to share what the Lord has given m e in the area of knowledge. T h e Lord has put an urge in m e to write. I feel I have a definite leading to write, and that's what keeps m e going when the obstacles get heavy." H e also said, " L B C encourages its professors to write, and when you do write, you hope that it will help the college to be seen in a better light and bring more credit to its name." O n the negative side, Barlow says noise and time are two pains to overcome in writing a book. Barlow must have the absolute quiet that he needs. Barlow said, "The load that a faculty m e m b e r has the privilege to carry does not allow a great amount of time for writing, especially if he is active in the community or in a christian service at church." Although he does do a small amount of writing during the school year, he does the bulk of his writing in the summer. Even with a full load of classes and the job of writing a textbook, Barlow still finds time to perform another service — that of answering m a n y of Dr. Falwell's letters. After his first year of teaching at L B C ,

and not wanting to sit around all s u m m e r without anything to do, Barlow went to Dr. Ed Hindson and asked if he needed help in the counseling center. H e did not, but said that they did need someone to answer s o m e of Dr. Falwell's mail. Hindson referred him to Dr. Falwell's administrative assistant and Dr. Barlow began his summer job. W h e n the s u m m e r ended though, Barlow continued to answer the letters and has been doing so for the last three years. He does not answer the routine letters. H e does answer those which contain special problems, such as theological questions, problem solving, or people w h o are upset about certain issues. H e says that there are others w h o can answer the letters but that he receives the bulk of them. This service takes a lot of time and extra work, but he enjoys it, because for one, he simply likes to write. Another reason is that he feels his background enables him to approach the problems in the letters in a w a y that Dr. Falwell would want him to. H e also feels it "is a good w a y to really become involved and k n o w what is going on in other aspects of the ministry." Barlow feels it broadens and deepens his view of the total ministry. Along with teaching, writing and answering letters, Barlow still manages to find time for a few hobbies. Hunting is a favorite hobby, and he hunts everything from rabbit to deer.

The seashore is another place of enjoyment for him. "1 can sit and watch the ocean for hours. It shows m e the majesty of God and the power of His creation." T h e seashore, Barlow says, is also a good place to witness. H e is also an old railroad buff and enjoys riding trains or model railroading. Sports are another area of interest to Barlow. H e played football and baseball in college and even had an offer to play for the St. Louis Cardinals, which he turned d o w n in order to go to seminary. Barlow definitely agrees with Dr. Falwell in his idea of success, which is, "Finding the will of God as early as possible in life, and staying in it all of your life." Personally, he feels that success has three parts. First of all, success is "finding yourself in the will of God." Secondly, "once you're in the will of God, use whatever talents He's given you to achieve." A n d thirdly, "by achieving in the will of God, that in turn can be used by the Lord to reach other lives for Christ." Barlow said, "Success is being happy about what you have achieved in the will of God." Barlow's activity-filled life and unique opportunities as an L B C college professor have formed the ingredients for his o w n success formula. — Karen Millison

Success through involvement Integration is the key to success," said Music Chairman Dave Randlett. "I have to have both m y family and m y job. M y job has to have both church involvement and school involvement." Dave Randlett was born and schooled in Pittsburgh, Pa. He attended Boston University to obtain his bachelor's degree in music education with a concentration in voice. Later, he went to grad school in Nashville, Tenn. While in Nashville, Randlett taught at Freewill Baptist College. During his eight years of teaching there, Professor Randlett was introduced to the college through the "Old Time Gospel Hour." "I only c a m e to visit s o m e friends in Lynchburg. I didn't want a job," declared Randlett, "but before I left Lynchburg the school had placed an application in m y hands and told m e to think about it." The college was then in its second year. The result of being offered the application was that by the following fall he c a m e to L B C to teach. His first position was the Coordinator of the Division of Music Education. In January, 1974, Dave Randlett became the director of the "Old Time Gospel Hour" choir. In July of that s a m e year, he was

named Chairman of the Division of Music. "It hit m e like an explosion, the w a y they emphasized the family," said Profesor Randlett. "I loved it. It was so positive and helpful to m e . M y family is like the melody and m y job is just the harmony that aids in carrying it along with ease and beauty." Dave Randlett is a family m a n w h o interweaves his family and his job together. He loves teaching music, but a weekend at the beach or lake with his family has the s a m e satisfying enjoyment as his job of teaching. Randlett's philosophy of music is that it ought to achieve artistic excellence, but it should also communicate something to the listener. "If it's church music, it should not lose its ministry at the expense of artistic excellence." Dave Randlett teaches senior music education classes, three church music classes and an internship in church music besides directing the "Old Time Gospel Hour" choir and spending at least 10-12 hours a week conducting the Sounds of Liberty. Randlett stated that to be restricted to just teaching or to be restricted to just functioning in the church's music department would leave him half empty. T o Dave Randlett his work at the school and his

work at the church are each like half notes in a four/ four measure; they are both needed to m a k e it complete. A s Division of Music Chairman, Randlett's duties include faculty development and recruiting, curriculum development, budget and finance development and overseeing everyday operations. He also is involved in s o m e committees. The future holds a stronger music department and, someday, a doctorate degree for Professor Randlett. He hopes to receive a degree in post secondary education of music. Randlett wants to strengthen the department by improving the string program, becoming accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music and by updating the curriculum. "I'm contented," said Randlett, "I have both m y family and m y job. M y job entails both teaching at the college and ministering at the church. I'm happy. I'm successful." â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Julie Ware Division chairman David Randlett is kept busy by directing the Sounds of Liberty and "The Old Time Gospel Hour" choir. Randlett has been at LBC for nine years. Pete Cannata


Pride in a growing program w. e have the highest qualified faculty," boasted Division of Music Chairman Dave Randlett, "and are graduating the highest caliber of music students of any other school in the nation." Liberty Baptist College began their m u sic program with just a choral program. Later, in 1973, the band and the concert choir were implemented. T h e fall of 1976 ushered the marching band onto the scene.

The string program and the orchestra fiddled their w a y into existence in 1979 and 1980. The first two years of the music department were spent in two dilapidated buildings. T h e next two years, they inhabited two tiny buildings across from T h o m a s Road Baptist Church and the T R B C choir room. Recitals had to be held outside. Finally, in 1975, the music department w a s

moved to the mountain. However, they had to have voice and piano classes in the old farm house for two years before the present Fine Arts Hall w a s constructed. The music department only had four professors when it w a s first implemented. N o w , there are 14 full-time teachers, all with a specific expertise and all highly qualified. "We've grown a lot in the past 11 years," said Randlett. "It's time w e sat back and reflected upon h o w to improve what w e presently have to its fullest potential rather than to expand constantly." The division is changing, but not in a major way. A new division is being formed, The Division of Fine Arts, which will encompass the present Division of Music and parts of the Division of Communication. Although the new division brings slight changes in structure, it will not change the high priority put on striving for excellence that has been so m u c h a part of the music program since the beginning. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Julie Ware

Teacher accreditation challenged 1 he L B C biology program gained a victory in the quest for teacher accreditation in the state of Virginia on April 8, 1982, when an 8-1 vote by a State Department of Education committee recommended the program for accreditation. But on M a y 21, a second committee rejected the program to further hinder the accreditation process. The problem, according to William Jones of James Madison University, w h o w a s the lone dissenter in the first committee vote, was a phrase in the L B C catalog under the list of objectives for the study of science. Jones pointed out the phrase "to show the scientific basis for Biblical creationism" as being "dogmatic" and violat-

ing the principles of academic freedom. Dr. Terry Weaver, the L B C biology department chairman, Russell Fitzgerald, academic dean, and Garth Runion, chairm a n of the division of education, appeared before the committee during the evaluation of the program. Weaver argued that both creation and evolution are presented in the classroom at L B C because colleges would become "intellectually confining" unless they exposed students to both views. "It's the only honest way to teach science," Weaver said. "The whole idea of college is to examine and compare different ideas. It's an open forum." State accreditation would enable L B C

graduates to teach biology in the state of Virginia and 30 other states. The American Civil Liberties Union presented its case before the second committee which voted d o w n the proposal. Weaver said, "The general nature of the ACLU's concern w a s that students graduating from L B C will all have a particular view on creation. State licensing of such graduates would be paramount to establishing religion in the public schools." Weaver said accreditation will continue to be pursued. The issue was to go before the State Board of Education during the s u m m e r of 1882. — Paul Stoltzfus


Biology professor Dr. Lane Lester said when he first heard creation presented as a science, it made more sense to him and he began to teach it.

where she earned her master's in health, physical education and recreation. "It was a struggle deciding whether or not to c o m e back," she said. She hesitated to return because she believes that m a n y times people graduate, stay in those familiar surroundings and never prove themselves. Because of this conviction,she first contacted several other places for employment. "You just have to go where God opens the doors," she said, explaining how she finally decided to teach at LBC. This was her first year as a teacher but her second as a volleyball coach. She got the opportunity to coach MTSU's women's volleyball team on a graduate assistantship which pai<J for her master's degree and a small salary besides. Then when she c a m e to L B C to teach, she was offered the volleyball coaching position as well.

Both were dreams c o m e true. She never thought she would have the chance to coach, but she did not know how she was going to get volleyball out of her system. "I knew I'd be involved in it in some way but I didn't know I'd be coaching." Beth said.

He no longer gambles on eternity It was a terrible fear of hell that resulted in the salvation of Jesse Odell Grooms. O n c e he w a s saved, he could not bear the idea of other people having to go there. He said the fact of people perishing was the greatest motivating factor that led him to be a soulwinner. Although the Gospel seems to continually flow from him now, his mind w a s not always on spiritual matters. G r o o m s was born in Fairview, Texas, and raised in Arizona, Whitton and Odon, Texas, by a godly mother. She was a born-

again Christian, yet he did not become one until later in life. "The reason she never questioned m e about being saved is because she had such convictions and was such a God-fearing w o m a n , that I lived a fairly good moral life in her presence," Grooms said. Six months after Grooms married, he c a m e into contact with an athiest w h o influenced him to become a professional gambler. He attended the funeral of his first cousin, AVi years later, where the reali-

ty of eternity, in view of the events of his past, brought him under deep conviction of his need for salvation. At the funeral, "the chaplain said, 'he looked up in m y face just before he died and said, 'I know I a m prepared and ready to meet m y Master.' God spoke to m e and

he said, 'J.O. will you die a Christian or will you die a gambler?' A n d I said, I k n o w m y mother is a Christian so I'll die a Christian," Grooms remembered. He began searching for G o d at that point in his life, knowing that he was lost but not knowing h o w to be saved because there was no one to explain salvation to him. W e e k after week he visited churches of various denominations. After visiting one such church at the invitation of a Sunday school teacher, the pastor visited him and shared Scripture with him about h o w to be saved. T h e pastor left him s o m e literature to ponder. Grooms c a m e to the conclusion that the message of salvation w a s true, despite its

simplicity, and he returned to the church the following Sunday and got saved. G r o o m s grew in the Lord rapidly. W h e n he w a s 4-years-old in the Lord, after schooling, he pastored his first church in Dallas, Texas. H e pastored churches for a while and then went into full-time Christian evangelism for three years before joining the T h o m a s Road Baptist Church staff. While on a crusade in Independence, Mo., he met Dr. Jerry Falwell for the first time. Falwell had been preaching in Kansas City. They met again a few months later and Falwell invited him to join the staff of T h o m a s Road Baptist Church. "He told m e that I w a s the only m a n he knew of that had a scripture memorization program coupled with a soulwinning program," G r o o m s said. G r o o m s joined the staff in 1970 and stayed until 1973. At that time he pursued full-time evangelism once again until 1977 w h e n he rejoined the T R B C staff. Throughout his Christian life G r o o m s has been an avid soulwinner. Within three months of his conversion he started winning people to Christ. "From the very day that I got saved I had a red hot, burning desire to win people

to Christ," he said. G r o o m s attributes this burden for the lost to a vision of hell he had before his salvation. A s a young man, he worked in a neon sign factory which had a furnace. A fellow worker likened it to what hell must be like and Grooms took it as a warning from God. Along with his burden for souls, J.O. G r o o m s also has a method. "The secret is studying the Bible and witnessing all the time. You can study the Bible all the time but unless you're witnessing and using the Bible, it doesn't m e a n very m u c h to you because you're not finding the application and outlet for which you're studying." Not only does he practice soulwinning himself, he also disciples others on h o w to be soulwinners. Twice a week he teaches a class of telephone evangelism students in which, motivated by his testimony and past experiences, he demonstrates practical soulwinning techniques over the telephone. J.O. G r o o m s is walking proof that God can salvage a life and m a k e it effective and useful for his service. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tracy Schreiber

Evans reminded those attending, "The state does not exist outside of the providence of God." H e encouraged Christians to be informed and get involved. The list of speakers included other dignitaries, such as: Dr. Robert Billings, Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Department of Education; Richard Dingman, Executive Director of the Republican Study Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives; John T.

T h e highlight of the conference was the featured address by the former Polish A m bassador Romuald Spasowski and his wife, W a n d a .

Spasowski reminded students, "The time will c o m e in the not-too-distant future w h e n in your hands, in your minds and hearts the destiny of this great country will be shaped." According to Boyd Rist, conference host, several hundred hours went into planning the "Understanding Politics Conference." Preparations began late in the summer of 1981 and continued through the fall and into the n e w year with the final arrangements being m a d e just before the beginning of the conference. Rist stated the purpose of the conference was, "To give students, faculty m e m bers and guests a philosophical basis w h y

Christians should be involved in politics, and acquaint the s a m e people with the conservative political tradition." Rist explained that the "Understanding Politics Conference" w a s designed to present a "broad picture on a variety of issues" from a conservative viewpoint. Through the workshop sessions, students were given information on where and h o w to get involved in the political realm. According to Rist, plans are being m a d e for future political seminars, but there is "no specific form as of yet." Though students entered the first political conference uncertain and curious they emerged with valuable information and were challenged to be more involved citizens. — Lois A n n e Bazen

Bricky returns in Airtime Brm c k y

II was the main feature in the 1982 edition of Airtime sponsored by Student Affairs. Bricky II, alias Dean Ed Dobson, returned to the ring this year for the first time since 1980 when Rocky I was popular. Since the return of Rocky II to the theatres, Bricky II has also been in great demand. Bricky originated as one of the Airtime features back in the 1979-80 school year. He entered the ring amidst reporters, photographers and security people w h o were there for his protection. He was introduced to the crowd of fans through a slide presentation of his training career. The slides were shot mainly on the streets of downtown Lynchburg, and featured Dean Dobson "jogging" up the steps on Church Street and training at the meat market. Almost 100 people were involved in the first Bricky prize fight, including those w h o wrote the script, the photographers, security people and the reporters. According to Dan Henderson, Bricky II w a s not as difficult to organize and perform because it was a repeat of Bricky I. Only about 20 people were involved in this year's production. The whole Airtime program was started by Dan Henderson in 1977 as a campaign tactic. "It w a s just a crazy idea that I had for a

campaign when I was running for student body president," Henderson said. The first Airtime featured Henderson himself as the presidential candidate. In the production, he pulled up in a Rolls Royce, became the target of an assasination attempt and was asked rigged questions by reporters. Henderson's "crazy idea" resulted in his election to the Student Government office. Dean of Students Ed Dobson, was often featured in later Airtimes. S o m e of his prominent roles were President of the United States, an Irish cop in N e w York City, Chief Scaredy Pants, the White Shadow and a contestant on the g a m e show "Let's M a k e A Deal" in which he actually w o n a sports car which the students had built for him.

Dobson was surprised when he was asked to appear once again as Bricky. "I thought we'd buried him the first time," he said. A s to appearing in future Airtimes, Dobson replied with a grin, "I'm getting too old for that stuff." The 1982 Airtime also included a wet weather fashion show hosted by Diane Crider, and a hair tonic demonstration featuring Dean Dane Emerick and Les Long, Assistant Dean of Men. The purpose of this year's Airtime was "mainly just to encourage the students and to give the Student Affairs staff an opportunity to promote a positive image," Henderson said. "The crowd seemed to like it real well. They enjoyed seeing the deans in a different type of setting." — Tracy Schreiber

Progressive changes •Starting in the fall of 1982, the television, radio and film department will have a new name; the department of telecommunications. Along with the n a m e will c o m e m a n y n e w opportunities for majors and minors alike. During 1981-82, the telecommunications department, under the direction of Dr. Carl Windsor, had an enrollment of 155, which was larger than at any other Christian college. The department planned to offer five majors and three minors in the fall of 1982. The department had several practice rooms, its o w n c a m p u s radio station, W L B U , and was also heavily involved with W R V L . O n the television side, the department had three television cameras (three color), n e w editing equipment and a control room. Before Dr. Windsor came, in the s u m m e r of 1979, things were m u c h different. Senior Craig H a m m recalls, " W h e n I started here at L B C in 1978, w e basically had no facilities. W e only had one radio practice room and two old black and white T V cameras. Not only did w e not have our o w n classrooms, but our professors didn't even have offices.

Sportscasting is a Rocky road 1 or a young m a n 21-years-old, Rocky Erickson has set high goals. O n e of those goals is to become a household n a m e a m o n g station owners when they think of covering sports. " W h e n a Christian station owner thinks of first class sports information I want him to think of Rocky Erickson," he said. Born and raised in Montana, Erickson first started sportscasting in his junior year of high school as a play-by-play announcer and a color commentator for over 50 games on seven radio stations. After graduation from high school, Erickson wanted to enroll in a broadcasting school in Minneapolis, Minnesota, or to attend Biola University in California. But the Old Time Gospel Hour program and a friend influenced him to c o m e to Liberty Baptist College for one year. "I liked it here so m u c h that I've c o m e back every year since then," Erickson said. Erickson stated that everything he did while at L B C has helped him in preparation for the field of Christian Broadcasting. "The T V R F program is fantastic with the Old Time Gospel Hour and the Lynchburg Cablevision to work with in television, and W R V L Radio Station and intra-campus station W L B U . " L B C has more opportunities to put experience on a resume than most colleges in the U.S.," he said. Erickson stated that experience is more important than the books, but the books are needed for experiepce. S o m e of Erickson's experience has been in the field of television as well as in radio. also announced a college football g a m e for "I've done just as m u c h in television as I Mobile Video Productions of Roanoke, Va. have in radio," Erickson said.

Richardson sells first film script W h i l e the attitude of professionalism in a field of study is not u n c o m m o n to students at LBC, the reality of professional experience is, for many, something to be dreamed of for the future. While this m a y be true, one L B C student, Karen Richardson achieved professional attention when she sold her first film script. Things got even better for Karen over Christmas break as she w a s able to see that film produced. Also, three other L B C students achieved their first professional experience in acting by playing the lead roles in Karen's film. T h e film entitled, "Rock â&#x20AC;&#x201D; It's Your Decision" w a s produced by Olive's Films in Huntsville, Ala. According to Karen, a little over a year ago she w a s contacted by Dr. Suhail Hanna, professor of English, to write a script for a dramatic film dealing with rock music from a Christian perspective. Karen accepted the job and w a s contacted by Olive's Films, a Christian film production company. They gave her the specifications for the film and, with the go ahead, she began her research which started during Christmas break in 1980 while at her h o m e in Richmond. "I found several good books on rock music from a Christian perspective and spent hours in record shops copying record titles," Karen said. "I also contacted friends of mine w h o listen to rock music to get their impressions." She also conducted surveys in record shops and shopping

malls. Although Karen, as a student at the college, has heard m a n y of the objections to rock music, she attempted to keep the script as objective as possible. "I knew nothing about rock music," she said. "I have never enjoyed listening to it; I mostly like easy listening and classical. And, although I knew the mindset that producers were looking for, I didn't worry if m y information w a s going to back what they wanted. I was going to find out what it was in light of Scripture, and let the individuals m a k e the decision." In considering h o w this achievement fits into her goals for the future, Karen said that she felt all along the Lord had given her the talent to write. Karen didn't see her talent at first and even had trouble deciding on a major. "It took m e two-and-one-half years to decide to major in English," she said. "I had freshman English teachers telling m e that they wished all their students wrote as well as I. It was then that I realized that I had a gift I had to cultivate, although I had been writing since I w a s a child. "I have been directed and challenged to write for God's glory and not for m y own," she said. "Dr. Hanna, Dr. Kronmeyer, and Dr. Brinkley have been m y main motivators." Karen also cites her interest in drama and Dr. Don Garlock's instruction in directing as helping her greatly in writing the film. She feels these two factors have helped her to see the action through the "minds eye." Karen consulted the producers of the

film on the possibility of casting it from L B C students and informed them that there was a great deal of talent and interest at the college. This proved to be true, as on the day of the auditions over 4 0 students participated, and four of the cast m e m b e r s were chosen from the L B C group. "I have never been so proud of m y fellow students," Karen said. "I w a s so surprised to see so m u c h talent." Apparently, the producers were also surprised and said they were going to c o m e to L B C from n o w on to cast their films. Those chosen to act in the film were T y Taylor, Laura Branscum and Glenn Williams, all drama majors, along with Stephen Wedan, instructor of drama. Karen w a s also present on the set, taking parts as an extra in addition to being available to the directors and producers for re-writing parts of the script. She commented that she has learned h o w costly these re-writes can be and h o w to accept the director's changes in her script. Karen was very protective of her work and w a s somewhat defensive about the director's editing. "And yet," she said, "another part of m e knew it w a s necessary. I was pleased with their interpretations." W h e n asked whether they would take on another film in the future, the response w a s unanimous, "In a minute!" they said. Apparently Karen has already been given an idea for another script for Olive's Films. After her graduation Karen will continue her education and she hopes to eventually teach in a Christian college. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

James Garner: husband student and actor I f you watch a production in which James Garner has been involved, it is hard to imagine that his acting did not c o m e easily. "Acting has always been hard for m e because I have always been terrible at fibbing," Garner said, "I couldn't even keep a straight face during a joke." Garner, 22, was born and raised in Greensboro, N.C. After graduation from high school, Garner planned to attend the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. But before he went, he met a girl that attended L B C and she informed him about LBC's King's Players and invited him to a College-For-A-Weekend. Garner visited L B C and changed his plans because of the students and the Christian atmosphere. Besides his plans, Garner also changed his major three times before he settled on drama. Garner's first acting role was at the age of 17. He played Mr. S h u m m y , the village idiot, in "Dark of the Moon." The role consisted of 12 words, but Garner soon realized "there was no such thing as a small at you. You c o m e to practice for weeks and you feel like at every practice you just part." Garner's first role at Liberty was King get worse. Then I feel I'm not meant to be Charles VII in "Saint Joan." His favorite in drama, that I should get out and go into role was Mr. Higgins in " M y Fair Lady." computer programming." Robyn describes James as sensitive and Garner remembers it as a "flowing role" and "the appex of all parts." He has partici- humble.

"Robyn is not only a great actress," into a character that it is hard to snap him J a m e s said, "but also a great wife. She is out of it. I think he loves drama so m u c h an inspiration to m e because in every play because in order to portray someone else, I'm in there is a time when I get depressed you really have to look at yourself first."

Garner has participated in approximately 25 plays while at LBC. Here he performs as Mr. Higgins, his favorite role, in "My Fair Lady" which was presented in 1980.

"Drama is hard work. You have to work hard to develop the character," Garner states. "It does not happen overnight, but it has m a d e m e aware of myself and helps m e understand w h o James Garner really is." Garner plans to continue affecting people through his dramatic talent, whether it is through acting or teaching. "God has given m e a talent and I think I should use it to help reproduce it in others w h o want to develop their talent," Garner said. "God has been good to m e in the area of acting, and it has turned out to be an unexpected pleasure." â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

Smith to exchange pitching for preaching A

pitcher and a preacher? Well, these

are two words which describe Doug Smith. Smith, from Plymouth, Mich., chose L B C because he felt that here he could both play baseball and be trained for the ministry. Pitching for L B C has fulfilled his desire to play baseball. T o fulfill his desire of becoming a pastor, Smith majored in speech because he felt that, "a pastor has the greatest message in the world to share and as a speech major I will have learned to give the message in the most effective way." In the fall of 1982, he plans to enroll in the Liberty Baptist Seminary to pursue a master of art's degree in Biblical Counseling. H e then plans to start an "aggresive Baptist church that is a lighthouse to the world and that will meet the needs of people around the world." This will include a h o m e for unwed mothers, teenage alcoholics, drug addicts, an orphanage, a Christian school, a c a m p and other such outreaches. "I have a burden to work with the young people of the day because I feel that parents are not doing the job they should," Smith said. Smith heard about Liberty for the first time from Dr. Bob Jones 111. He wrote to Liberty, but was also interested in Bob Jones University and Tennessee Temple. H e received a call from L B C baseball coach Al Worthington, w h o expressed interest in him. Smith then showed up on the campus of L B C in the fall of 1978. Since then he has taken an active part in college life. He was president of his sophomore class and Speaker of the Senate in his junior year. He has also been a prayer leader for two and a half years. Baseball has also been a major part of smith's four years at LBC. "1 play baseball because God gave m e the talent and to m e it would be a sin not to use that talent for His glory," Smith said. " W h e n I go out on the field, I totally release all of what I have and trust God for the results. It really doesn't matter to m e if I get hit hard because I know that God's love is not determined by h o w well I do.

young and his mother raised him. Smith spoke highly of his mother saying, "She has always been m y best friend. She was the one w h o taught m e to do what was right and to never give up at whatever I do." Smith said his high school baseball coach also played an important role in his life.

Smith concluded, "If I can go through life, and can look back and see where I m a d e people happy and m a d e people smile, 1 will consider m y life a success."

M a n y events happened this year in the Institute to m a k e it a memorable year for the students and faculty. In September, Dr. Willmington's book, "Willmington's Guide to the Bible," was published and used as a textbook in the Institute. The second semester saw m a n y n e w faces in the Institute as n e w students brought the enrollment to 107. A s the year ended, students were thankful for the good memories the past year held.

Skit highlights Christmas party ^Dkits, music, singing and spaghetti were on the agenda for the Institute's Christmas party. It w a s held December 11 in the chapel on Treasure Island. T h e m e n and ladies were greeted at the door with boutineers and corsages. Dr. Harold Willmington, dean of the Institute, spoke just before the entertainment began. Several people provided special music. "Santa Claus" ( D o m Forlano) recognized the December graduates with Christmas "presents" which portrayed their personalities. Several mini-skits c a m e before the main skit and grand finale of the day: "The Fickle Family." Mike Gestrich wrote the skit about a "typical" Institute family and their m a n y trials and tribulations. Just before lunch, Fred Duncan sang m a n y familiar Christmas songs. A spaghetti lunch awaited after the morning's activities had ended. Ice cream and cookies topped off the meal. M u c h of the credit toes to Mike Gestrich, and the m a n y others w h o helped him plan and organize the program. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jennie Vanhoy

T h e Institute: A story of growth /amazed!" That was the w a y Dr. Harold Willmington described his reaction as he walked into class April 7. It was his 50th birthday and the students of the Institute had planned a surprise for him. After chapel, everyone hurried back to class and waited for him. A s he walked into the room, the lights were off. W h e n they c a m e on everyone yelled, "SURPRISE!" "I was totally unaware of what was going on," he commented afterwards. "Even w h e n I opened the door and saw all the lights off, I thought, 'Those crazy students have got the lights off.'" After "Happy Birthday" was sung, Ricky Miller, class president, presented Dr. Willmington with a pewter cup. Engraved on the cup was "Baptist gasoline" since he enjoys coffee so m u c h . Several special guests were on hand to express their congratulations and praise for his accomplishments. "He's a tremendous asset to this ministry, said L B C President A. Pierre Guillermin. He then presented Dr. Willmington

with a Lynchburg Jefferson Cup, a silver cup similar to one on display at Monticello. Next, Dr. Elmer Towns, dean of the Liberty Baptist Seminary spoke highly of Dr. Willmington saying that someday his n a m e would be "named a m o n g Ironside, R.A. Torrey and others." Lastly Dr. Falwell mentioned the even greater work that Dr. Willmington was doing n o w as the dean of the Liberty H o m e Bible Institute which has approximately 12,000 students at present. Willmington was born April 7, 1932 in southern Illinois. His family later moved to Mt. Vernon, III., where he graduated from high school. His next schooling was for a year and a half at Hannibal-LaGrange in Hannibal, M o . While at LaGrange, he surrendered to the call to preach. In June of 1952, he enrolled at the M o o d y Bible Institute in Chicago and graduated there in 1955. His first pastorate was in a small church in Griggsville, III. During this time, he was completing his bachelor's degree at La Grange. Upon completion, he enrolled at

Dallas Theological Seminary. While at Dallas, he married Sue Ransom on April 15, 1961. A son Matthew, was born to them in December of 1962. At that time, he accepted the pastorate at Community Bible Church in Ohio for three years. He then moved to Minneapolis, Minn., where he assumed the pastorate of a rather large church. In the late 1960s, he was pastoring a church in Indiana when a good friend, Elmer Towns, invited him to Lynchburg Baptist College to hold a series of meetings with the students. What he did not k n o w was that he was to meet Dr. Jerry Falwell w h o had plans to start a Bible Institute. Dr. Falwell did indeed invite him to start this particular ministry. After m u c h prayer, he and his family moved to Lynchburg in 1972. This was the beginning of what is known today as the Institute of Biblical Studies. In 1976, the Liberty H o m e Bible Institute, a h o m e correspondence course, was begun. At present, it has an enrollment of approximately 12,000 students, one of the largest, if not the largest, of its kind in the world.

In 1981, the students of IBS were privileged to have as their textbook, "Willmington's Guide to the Bible." The book itself weights 5'/4 pounds and has approximate ly one million words in it. "I began actually preparing this while I was at the Dallas Theological Seminary in '58-59. Then it slowly dawned on m e that maybe I could s o m e day compile an allinclusive one-volume s u m m a r y of the Bible so I just kept adding to it and adding to it and when I c a m e here, I continued working on it while I was working in the ministry." It was completed in 1978 and by the fall of 1981, the book had been published by Tyndale House Publishers which has since printed 110,000 copies. 1981 was an exciting year for the IBS students in another way also. In keeping with Dr. Falwell's vision of one day having all the schools on the mountain, the Institute held classes on the mountain with the college and seminary for the first time. Classes had previously been held in the old sanctuary at the T h o m a s Road Baptist Church. Various rooms adjacent to the sanctuary were also used for elective classes. Most of the students were pleased with the move. Gary Roy, a 1982 graduate from Tri-City Baptist Church in Durham, N.C. thought the m o v e was profitable. "We have access to the college library and to the college professors. W e have an

opportunity to show others our program. A lot of w h o m didn't k n o w w e existed. This will help us grow." Dr. Willmington saw more advantages than disadvantages in the move. " W e had more room as far as m y office is concerned and a little more privacy. I'm glad I'm up here where the students are. "The big advantage of being here on the mountain of course is that this is where the action is. I can go and visit the other religion professors and of course that's what I enjoy doing," Willington said. While on the mountain this year, another big step w a s m a d e toward fulfilling the Great Commission in our day. In chapel on Wednesday, April 28, Dr. Falwell announced the approval of Dr. Willmington's request to establish an International Bible Center here in Lynchburg. Dr. Willmington was appointed co-ordinator for that entire ministry. The Bible Center will have many, m a n y aspects to it. Just to mention a few: day and week long seminars for pastors will be held, a school to train directors for local church Bible Institutes, and a computerized Bible Program will be started. From its beginning until now, the Bible Institute has been an exciting ministry and it appears that it will continue to be so in the future, if Dr. Willmington has any thing to do with it. — Jennie Vanhoy

Unusual! Those were just a couple of the comments m a d e about this year's Institute Sweetheart banquet. Every other year, the Sweetheart banquet centers its program around the renewing of the wedding vows. The married couples renew their vows and the single people v o w only to marry in the Lord. Approximately 200 people were on hand February 20 at Eagle Eyrie for this special occasion. With the ladies in formals and the m e n in dress suits, they were treated almost royally as they arrived. Don Baker graciously opened the car doors and greeted the guests. John Rundell then parked the cars for the couples as they came. Everyone chatted over punch in the huge reception room. Photographs were taken of the couples with the gigantic fireplace as the background. Everyone then entered the candlelight room for dinner. Sweetheart roses and red candles decorated the tables. At the base of each candle were four tiny crossstitched pillows bearing the words, "Love Begins Here," which w a s the theme for the evening. After the meal, entertainment was provided by the love songs of Fred Duncan. Donnie Cantwell, a graduate of the Institute, was the speaker for the evening. Next c a m e the highlight which everyone had been waiting for. First, the single w o m en repeated after Dr. Willmington their v o w to marry only in the Lord and were followed by the single m e n w h o did the same. T h e married couples were next. After renewing their vows, they puckered up and kissed their mates! Judy Forlano, planner and organizer of the banquet, then spoke briefly. "I couldn't have done it without the help of a lot of ladies," w h o m she then recognized with roses. The lovely evening was capped off as everyone enjoyed a piece of the six-tier wedding cake. W h e n asked what most impressed those attending, the exchanging of the vows kept coming up. "It m a d e you think back to the actual time it happened. It m a d e you think of the way life was then and the way it is now," said Dennis Roberts, a first semester student. O n e student stated that this really m a d e him see the importance of his wife. Of all the activities this year, this w a s one not soon to be forgotten. — Jennie Vanhoy lnslitute/271

T h e Liberty Baptist Seminary continued to grow during 1981-82. Each student had an input into the seminary. S o m e m a d e an impact on areas outside the seminary as well, as they took on other responsibilities. S o m e students pastored churches on weekends which added to their schedule. Others headed up s u m m e r inner city teams or were involved with other weekend ministries. Faculty m e m b e r s also influenced each student as they taught classes and subjects which will influence each student in his or her future ministry.

usual, the year passed quickly for most students. Once the second semester began, most weeks seemed insignificant except for those which involved assignments due or difficult exams. Spring was slow in coming, but students took every opportunity for exercise when the w a r m weather finally arrived. Frisbees sailed on nearly every w a r m day and could almost be called a campus fad. The floating discs definitely had an impact on students as they provided an escape from the last strenuous weeks. Dust-ridden tennis rackets emerged from the corner of closets and winter wardrobes could finally be packed away for good. Sunning also became a popular and relaxing past time as s o m e students worked to get that all-important tan before they ventured home. By the time mid-April rolled around, most students were counting down each day until M a y 15. Winning seasons by the men's and women's track, Softball and baseball teams also gave the students something to cheer about. Then, of course, final e x a m s had an impact. But by that time, most students had their sights set on home, summer jobs, vacations, or perish the thought, summer school. These things normally overshadowed the late night weariness from studying due to the last-week pressure of attaining good grades. Changes and constants, individuals and groups, athletics and academics all combined to produce a year at L B C which m a d e an enormous impact on us.
