Amendment Nixed; Proposal Passed

An amendment which would have offered a co-op job or internship as an alternative to the practicum requirement of the proposed interdisciplinary journalism major was defeated Monday, Jan. 29, at the curriculum committee meeting. The major proposal was passed and will go before Senate Wednesday, Feqruary 7.

Before the meeting there was speculation that a long debate might take shape between Director of Co-operative Education Frank Mitchell, who submitted the amendment,and Dr. James R. Bailey, one of the authors of the proposal. After a relatively brief discussion by the committee, however, the Mitchell amendment was defeated.

What discussion there was centered on an amendment proposed by Mitchell, which if passed, would have introduced an internship or co-op job as an alternative to the practicum requirement. The practicum is described in the proposal as:

Doubts Sta shed; Date Extended; Rehearsals and Dance Set Monday

After a meeting between College officials and representatives for Zarbaugh and Assoc., Inc., the general contractor for the Battelle Fine Arts Center, doubts concerning Zarbaugh's continuing work on the project were alleviated, according to Vice

President for Business Affairs Woodrow R. Macke.

The Center, which has experienced delays continuously since its proposed completion date of last July, was scheduled for College move-in this weekend, but that date has again been extended from any where between two and four weeks. Dance classes and

HEW: $3 Million Total Over the Years

Otterbein has in past years received over $3,000,000 assistance from the Federal government for the building of new facilities.

The Science Building, the Library, Hanby and Mayne Halls, the Campus Center and the Health Center were all assisted through grants and loans from the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) office of education.

"Grants and loans from the government have been used fairly extensively over the years," commented Woodrow W. Macke, vice president for Business Affairs. This year Otterbein is sustained in part by assistance of at least $300,000 in grants and loans to students, to the college

some type of program they offer."

The grants and loans have to be applied for each year. "The college had to apply for initial eligibility and then applies again each year," said Don Foster, director for Financial Aid. Foster was referring to the loans and grants which Otterbein offers to students. Otterbein utilizes the Work Study Program, National Direct Student Loans and the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants. The selection of recipients is made by the college for these grants and students can also apply directly to the government for the Basic Educational Opportunity Grants.

"Government grants to the school have to be matched," continued Macke. "We have to draw money from the budget unless alumni or other college

saving the use of student funds.

The grants and loans received have been for a variety of educational resources. "Consistently in the last eight or ten years we have received grants for library books, each year worth $3-5,000," said Macke. Otterbein also receives money to assist the Nursing and Cooperative Education Programs. National Science Foundation Grants have been awarded to improve teaching, to develop new programs and for research in the sciences. Otterbein has also applied for grants to benefit Westerville by receiving money to support special sessions between Otterbein faculty and community leaders.

"The grant we apply for each year is a Title VI grant," said Macke. "This grant is competitive

rehearsal for a College theatrical production, however, will begin this Monday.

Last month Macke said the College would not move into the building until all construction was completed, since a move-in would signify legal acceptance and responsibility for the buiding.

Wednesday he said, "We no longer feel we are in the same position we were in a few w�e_k� ago. We will accept respons1b1hty for those parts of the building which we use."

Before the Wednesday meeting, Macke said "Unless we get different assurance, we need to take some legal action to complete the job."

After the meeting in which Zarbaugh assured the College he would finish the job, the outlook was much more positive. according to the ·vice president. " We could be in the building in two weeks," said Macke. "The contractor thinks he can be done in two days, but it's not that simple. We will be monitoring the work very closely the next few days."

Early this week the outlook was not so optimistic and whether Zarbaugh would continue on the job was questionable. A College official said the contractor

FEB 2, 1979 -

Overdue Building

The struggle to complete the Battelle Fine Arts Center continues - as it has for over six months now, each delay seeming to presage another .. What the real source for these delays is cannot be fully known. One party may cry, "delays in shipment," another may say, "he didn't coordinate his work properly," and still another will point at drawings, vindicating every complication in the world by merely extending his finger toward a jiggle of lines, as though this is the answer to every question ever posed.

What people are crying and saying and pointing to means little to students and faculty, or anyone not sp�cifically involved in the management or negotiations. All they see is this great brown brick building lauded as the one great main hope for the arts at Otterbein. And for good reason.

rt is impressive and will be a beautiful addition to the Otterbein campus. As the president's wife once said: It will be one of the finest examples of renovative work in the area, and one of the first. This we support with enthusiasm. (Working with what we alr�dy have will be the key to the future.)

But the grandness of the project has become tainted over the past couple months, because of the seemingly interminableness of the work and the constant delays.

Some might say it really matters very little, since not that many people are watching the progress regularly. But for those who did and do, the affair is disheartening.

On the main entrance to the building is a notice from Mort Achter of the music department, who along with the people in the fine arts, must look toward the building every day. The notice is a plea for all peop1e looking to the move to wait just a little while longer. We have waited this long, a few weeks more can hardly matter, it says.

And a few weeks won't matter in the long view, just as a paper turned in several days late doesn't matter in the long view. But does this mean the professor will accept this happily? Or will he look at that late paper and form an opinion of that student? And if this behavior happens frequently the opinion will become ever surer and ever more skeptical.

So it is with building buildings. People become skeptical and require explanations. Th_ey can understand this complication or this scheduling mix-up - but a chronic problem, which goes on week after week and month after month? Hardly.

And it's not just the faculty and student, but those who have invested· their money in this enterprise. Surely they are posing questions and pondering this curious situation.

In future decisions concerning large construction projects or even small installation jobs (phones), a bit more time and few more questions need to be asked.

Co-op Growing Steadily Since Inception in 1975

From a small start in 1975 to today, Co-operative Education has grown into a program with 13 placements this year. Originated as a pilot work experience

program for one student from both training in the area of a student's the Home Economics and major or field of interest. There Chemistry Departments, Co-op are two work periods of six now embraces many departments months each; one half year of work at Otterbein. in the sophomore year, and Co-operative Education is a another six months in either the program providing for on-the-job junior or senior year. The rest of the time the participating student goes to school as usual. Some students have done just the work period in their junior year, but that is permitted only in certain situations.

Frank Mitchell, director of the Co-op program, says that "It's valuable in that they can learn about the field before they've finished school." The program offers a chance to explore the possibilities of real work experiences before leaving college; to "take a leave of absence from the theoretical and move to the practical."

Mitchell also said the college benefits through the program by greater alumni ties and by attracting more students.

Taking time off from school does not mean t.hat a Co-oper will necessarily have to graduate behind his or her class. Bill Flynn, who held a Co-op job with Nuclear Consulting Service will graduate on time this June. His job was air and water pollution testing around different industrial plants. Althe1Ugh Flynn does not plan to go back to the same company, he found Co-op to be a positive experience. It gave him insight and helped him decide his goalsin his case, graduate school.

Stephens worked as a file clerk with a law firm, and played an active role in day to day operations of the firm. When she started she "had no knowledge of anything in the court system" but now "I know exactly how it works." She went on to say that every student should explore Co-op possibilities, not for the money, but rather the good work training.

Co-operative Education offers a viable alternative to the four years of academics most students pursue during their stay at Otterbein. Frank Mitchell recommended it as a whole new experience - "seeing the inside."

Spinning the Disc Street Wise Chatter and Lazy Afternoon Blues

Employing the rock-a-hilly mound of Buddy Holly and the lyrical imagery of a young Tom Waits, Steve Forbert has come up with an excellent debut album. But Steve Forbert isn't a product of the first two artists; he makes this album his own.

Forbert's songs are straight up the alley into the bump 'n grind of the city streets. The songs are not your sentimental love journeys, nor do they contain the philosophy of some profound enlightenment. Streetwise chatter, lazy afternoon babbles and lonely night blues are the dominating themes on this album.

"Well here's to people living lives that they regret, work your fingers to the bone and sink in debt." Sound familiar? The great American way is aptly and thoroughly dealt with in "Steve Forbert's Midsummer Night's Toast." The song is a cutting, well forged examination of city life. The artist reveals the insights of the "big apple" that only a native would know.

But Forbert is not to be just a ·critic who refuses to play the game. On "You Cannot Win If You. Do Not Play," the singer knows what he wants - but he's not real sure how to get at it. Resolutely he decides to play hard and see what he comes up with.

What is really interesting on "Alive On Arrival" is how Forbert analyzes himself. "What kinda guy am I really, I lost my jacket but I kept my tie, I'll tell ya truly that I sometimes lie, what kinda guy am I?" Get the idea? A really

humerous evaluation of one's self - yet incredibly simple. Forbert gets his point across on his songs with amusing impact.

Of course even Mr. Forbert has his dark moments. "Tonite I Feel So Far Away From Home" is a song about alienation in a big city. A song where one man's fall leads to another man's sorrow! "I saw a man break down today, break down into tears, tonite I feel so far away from home." A lighter side of this alien feeling is brought out on "Big City Cat." This song, with a guest sax solo by David Sanborn, is about an outsider who is the

real insider - but lost in the masses. "I'm a face in the crowd, I'm a big city cat."

Superficially Steve Forbert's debut album "Alive On Arrival" is a collection of streetwise, stunningly real songs. But there's more to this album. Forbert's songs also reveal an insight of urban and city life rarely found on albums of this artist's genre. Each tune has imagery that is almost neon and yet honest enough to avoid plasticity. The songs are beautifully crafted on Steve Forbert's "Alive On Arrival." The

cuts on this album play the extremes -a lazy brook and a rushing waterfall � but the water is always hot.

"Grand- Central Station March 18, 1977." On this cut Forbert proves himself as an excellent ballad writer. Set in that vast underground wonder of marble and steel, Grand Central Railway Station, Forbert reveals a "3-D" view that most of us are too busy to notice. "Grand Central Station, wheels and it deals, the crowds rush and scramble, right past the newstand and out onto the floors." Real!

''Winnie-the-Pooh'' in Workshop

Straight from the pages of A.A. Milne's classic children's stories comes "Winnie-the-Pooh" to Otterbein College Workshop Theatre. The collection of tales will be staged tonight in Barlow Studio Theatre at 7 p.m.

Senior Amy Runser is directing the production which she says deals "with the friendship and love that a little boy has for a bear and that the bear has for his friends."

"The whole show is based on simplicity," she continued, "I'm working on simple, strong emotions such as love, loyalty and fear - those which are most important to us all."

Finding the connection between animalistic impulses and human feelings has been one of the challenges facing the cast. "I've tried to relate each of the animal characters to people I know," said Runser, "The cast must be able to let the love and warmth the characters have for each other

show so that the whole audience will leave feeling warm and treasuring their own friends."

Cast as the friends who inhabit the fantasy world of Milne's son Christopher Robin (played by Tom Lawson), are Dan Pohl as Pooh, Sue Carter as Piglet, Cheryl Newcomb as Owl, Jeni Deffenbaugh as Rabbit and Ile Haggins of Eeyore. Newcomers to the forest are Kanga (Tammy Sager), and Roo (Jami Flora), who bring such frightening things as bathtubs and soap with them.

"The situations that the animals face are very similar to ones we all go through every day," Runser commented, "I want people to laugh at the funny things Pooh does, but still feel touched when he sacrifices himself for his friend Piglet."

"I think we can all see the reality of these loving and giving relationships - when the going

gets rough, people really do stick together," she said.

Although "Winnie-the-Pooh" is considered children's theatre, Runser doesn't feel that its appeal is limited to youngsters.

"Children can learn to appreciate friendship by watching 'Pooh' but we certainly aren't approaching it as something 'just good enough for the kids,' " she stated. "Milne didn't write it with that attitude; he wrote it first of all for himself and his wife."

As a young director, Runser said that her biggest challenge is "communicating what I want to the actors. I want them to explore things for themselves, but I also need to provide a frame for them to paint in."

Serving as assistant to the director is Loretta Sherer. Mary Jo Yeakle is technical director and Kim Luther narrates the action.

As high school cheerleaders in 1963 Mary, Kathy, and Joanne are �ore concerned with the immediate problem of having a date for the dance after the game than they are with what lies ahead in the ill-defined "future."

But the times change and the girls are forced to either adapt or to create their own environments. How they confront the challenges facing them is explored in Jack Heifner's "Vanities," to be produced by Otterbein College Theatre.

Cast as the trio of friends are Kelly Maurer as Mary, Sandy Martin as Kathy, and Lisa Durham as Joanne. Although they are portraying characters somewhat removed from their own

"She is me in high school," says Dunham of her alter-ego , Joanne, "It's intriguing to see how Heifner developed her and how I could have turned out had I now made certain choices and met certain people."

"This is a timeless play," agreed Martin, "Even though it is set in a 'period,' the ideas and things the characters talk about are still talked about today."

Drawing on their own backgrounds, provides the actresses with some oasis for building their characters, but they still encounter difficulties in finding the realities necessary to make a "character" a real person.

"Mary is a good example," says Maurer, "It's a type of role I've never done before. I'm so accustomed to playing the shy, innocent ingenue and she is so hardened."

"I think it is important to establish that she has basically the same values as her friends in the

These requests were in past years as much as $30,000 but are recently limited to $12,500 for the 25 out of 50 Ohio institutions who receive them. The request for next year was made last Wednesday bt.1t Macke explained that there is or. ly "a ten per cent chance we'll get the money since the President (Carter) has cut his budget to allow more money into Direct Student loans. Either way, the students and the college have Federal assistance. This just places more responsibility on the students."

Macambo listened to the Super Bowl. He didn't watch it, but sat in the corner of his cage where he couldn't see the TV and picked his nose. The new television was given to him so he could watch the game in color like the gorilla in the Atlanta Zoo. Last week someone stole the TV from the gorilla's cage in Atlanta. Macambo wishes someone would steal his if he has to watch football; it's such a primitive game.

According to Macke, Tuesday was the first day in five days that a man for Zarbaugh had been working.

Presently Zarbaugh has been paid five-sixths of its contract or $500,000. The College still holds $100,000 budgeted for the general contractor.

Should complications arise, one of the College's possible C('.)urses of action would be to approach the bonding company, an insurance business guaranteeing payment to an employer should he suffer financial loss through the actions of the employee.

The bonding company would then be responsible for seeing to the completion of the job through one of three ways. It could either hire the original general contractor to finish the job, assuring financial backing, hire a new contractor, or turn the job over to Otterbein, wherein the College would hire a firm to finish the job and finance it with the

remaining amount originally budgeted for Zarbaugh. Anf money left after completion of the job would be turned over to the bonding company.

No serious consideration on the part of the college has been given to filing a suit or claim for damage, according to Macke.

A spokesman for Zarbaugh said Wednesday night that no one was available for comment and that all questions should be directed to Zarbaugh's lawyer.

No one from Zarbaugh was at the Arts Center by 9 a.m. yesterday morning, but a College staff member said "they are supposed to try and finish it up in the next few days. I haven't seen anyone there this morning yet."

Among the work uncompleted is touch-up painting, some sink hookups, sealing of concrete floors, installation of auditorium seats, air balance and repair work on the windows.

The Otterbein Service Department was scheduled to begin clean-up work Wednesday.

port s McCombs Br eaks Oldest Record

The best individual performance of the young track season was turned in Friday by sophomore shot putter Doug McCombs, who with a throw of 47 feet, 3 and¾ inches, smashed Otterbein's oldest indoor record.

The old standard was set back in 1960 by Gary Allen, who threw the 16 pound shot 47'2½". Allen is currently the athletic director at Beechcroft Junior-Senior High School in Columbus's far North side.

Track Team �repares for Conferenee Relays

Otterbein's improving track team hosts five teams tonight in a tune-up for the conference relays. Mt. Union, Wittenberg, Heidelberg, Capital and Lorain Community College will all compete in the first full schedule meet of the indoor season.

With the relays one week away, this will be the first opportunity to run under actual meet conditions. Although no score will be kept, coach Porter Mille r believes the adrenalin will be flowing tonight as his athlete$ prepare for the meet next week.

Miller s ays the team is steadily improving. The progress of the squad as a whole is almost to the point Mille r anticipated in his preseason evaluation.

Last F riday's meet was highlighte d by Doug McComb's record put of the shot (see accompanying story). Anothe r fine performance was turned in by John Mc Kenzie with a 2:03.4 in the 880 yard run.

Freshmen hurdlers Tim Potts and Steve Farkas won Mille r's praise for their efforts in the 50 yard high hurdles. Farkas was clocked in 6.78 seconds and Potts had a time of 6.96.

The mile run was extreme ly competitive among the Otte rbein runners. Jim Vancleave (4:31.44) edged out Robby Rose by less than two-tenths of a second in one of the

Track coach Porter Miller was ecstatic about McComb's performance and envisions his heats. Rick Miller was timed in 4:33.8 and Mike Malone finished with a 4:38.6. Miller l ater ran a 9:55.8 in the two mile run.

prize shot putter bettering the OUTDOOR mark of 47 feet, 9½ inches (Gary Allen, 1960 and Bill Thompson, 1964) before the close of the indoor season.

McComb's chances of placing in the conference meet are excellent, according to Miller. His throws to date place him among the top six putters in the conference. "And he's improving wee kly," Miller added.

If McCombs, or any of the other Otte rbein shot putters, place in the top six at the conference championship in March, it will indeed b e cause for celebration. Checking through past records, the last shot putter to score a point in the OAC championship meet was Dale Chittum in 1973. That year he placed fifth indoor and sixth outdoor.

There are two factors for McCombs's improvement, outside of hard work. First, Guido Rice vuto, the track coach at Columbus DeS ales High School, has bee n working with the shot putte rs three times a week.

Miller be lie ves Ricevuto is "doing a terrific job" in handling the shot putters. Ricevuto is able to give the added attention ne eded to an e vent where technique is so vitally important.

Sophomore Doug McCombs set a new indoor record for the shot put with a distance of 4 7'3¾" during last Friday's meet against Muskingum and Otterbein.

Secondly, the compe tition among the putters doe s not allow McCombs a chance to relax. Mike Havens and Jim Puckett are also showing improveme nt in the ir distances to the point where coaches Miller and Ricevuto expect them to e ventually break the current outdoor mark as well.

Otters Caught in Heartbreaker

Otters Lose Heartbreaker to Heidelberg at Buzzer, 73-71

The Otterbein Cardinal basketball team lost a heartbreaker to Heidelberg 73-71 Wednesday night at the Rike Center.
