Cao-Otter Clash

Frosh Doff Beanies by John Riley

The Scrap Day competition between the Classes of '7 5 and '76 this past Saturday provided an eventful afternoon in spite of an occasional light drizzle. The contest was close, but with determined will the frosh won out ~nd earned the right to stop weanng their beanies. The games started at 1:30 behind the Campus Center with a Co-Rec Three-Legged Sack Race. The sophomores gained ~he lead early in the event, but tn the last leg of the race the freshmen took over and won the firS t points earned during the afternoon. The Men's Football Relay was won easily by the sophomores; the freshmen, towever, won the Women's oola Hoop Relay in a close race. The sophomores won the io-Rec Dishpan Relay and the reshmen won the Co-Rec Back to Back Relay. th In the Men's 100 Yard Dash e freshmen won first and seco nd place and third place Went to th in e sophomores. Then th th e Women's 50 Yard Dash wh\ freshmen got first place 1 e the sophomores picked up second and third In the C R. R1 ec Wheelbarrow di;;y /he s~phomores had no cu ty maintaining the lead,


But as their last couple approached the finish line two freshmen bombarded the wheelbarrow pusher with water balloons. The two frosh fled, pursued by a mob of their competitors, while the sophomores finished and won the event. Only one member from each class survived to the end of the Women's Slowest Bike Race. As they edged toward the finish line the sophomore won, coming in just inches behind the frosh. A sophomore couple survived the Water Balloon Toss winning that event for their class. The freshman class won the Co-Rec Mattress Race and thus the score was tied as the last event began. The crowd moved down to the Alum Creek Park for the day's grand finale, the tug-of-war. The sophomores took up their end of the rope on the east bank and the freshmen were on the west. As the two sides began pulling, little happened ; but soon the rope started to move toward the freshmen. They continued pulling hard and finally the sophomores were in the creek. The Class of '76 thus became this year's Scrap Day champions and they departed from the park, determined to win again next year.

''Otter Dome'' Construction Set for Spring by Lee Schroeder

One of the new additions to Otterbein's campus for the near future is - the Physical Education-Recreation Center. The center will be in the shape of a round, domed building, eonsisting of two levels. It will be located immediately north of the football field and will include such facilities as a varsity basketball court, two handball courts, three tennis courts, and a 1/10 mile four lane track. The basketball court will hopefully hold 2800 spectators when completed. There will also be a multi-use open area divided into sections by curtains. This will allow people to engage in various activities like volley ball, tennis, badminton, and basketball all at the same time. Other features include ten faculty offices, a conference room, two classrooms, and a combined lounge-study library for students' use between classes. A gymnastics area, a dance area and a training room will also be provided. If all goes according to schedule, construction of the Physical Education-Recreation Center is expected to begin sometime during the spring of 1973, however, no completion

data has as yet been scheduled. An indoor swimming pool will hopefully be added later. However, funds are desperately needed in order to achieve this ultimate goal.

125th Anniversary Campaign Under the management and supervision of Mr. William Prince, this year's 125the Anniversary Campaign will sponsor the largest duti.d raising program in thehis.tory of Otterbein College. The program entitled, Venture into 0 pp or t unity, will consist of thirty area campaigns designated to organize person to person solicitation beginning this fall. The purpose of the campaign is to raise money for three proposed building and renovation projects at Otterbein. The first of these is the multi-purpose athletic facility to be built north of the football field. The second phase of the program will involve the remodeling of the gymnasium to include a number of modern classrooms which will make up the new Teaching-Learning Center. The third project is the renovation of Towers Hall. The college hopes to replace the roof of Towers and have the interior

made over to house the offices of the most members of the faculty. Mr. Prince has had a great deal of past experience in the field of fund raising. He has managed financial affairs for several secondary schools, preparatory schools, and private academies. Mr. Prince has also given his professional help to Rice University, Denison and Oberlin colleges. In addition to this brilliant record, Mr. Prince once held the position as a professional fund raiser for Marts and Lundy, Inc. When asked to comment on the exact dollar goal originally set by the campaign, Mr. Prince replied he was confident that the goal of $2,320,000 would be reached in the not too distant future. Since last spring, the campaign has accumulated approximately $925,000. Most of this money came from Otterbein constituency, alumni, parents, and church people. Many contributions were also made by large businesses and industries. However, Mr. Price encourages everyone to take an active interest in Otterbein's growth and development through his/her contribution.

Otter Concern Over Football To the Editor: Last Saturday night, while IOOSt of the Otterbein students were having a grand old time at the all campus party, the Otters were once again having their problems. The opponents were different, but the result was the same. In Tiffin, Ohio, our supposedly experienced and better football team took on the Heidelberg Student Princes where the Fighting Cardinals not only lost, but were humiliated by an embarrassing score of 69-13. That gives Otterbein a 0-2 record in a season that according to many was to be "The Year of the Otter". I must admit that the Otters have not looked too impressive to date and hopes for a winning season are now doubtful. It is frustrating to watch the cardinals week after week repeat the same mental and physical mistakes. 1t is not all the coaches fault, although they don' t contribute rruch to the team as far as a winning attitude is concerned. Neither is it entirely the quarterback's fault, although it would be nice if they would play

catch with our receivers once in a while instead of the other team Heidelberg picked off five Otter passes during last Saturday's nightmare, two for touchdowns. Our offensive line averaged 22 pounds per man more than Heidelberg's aggressive defense, but that didn't seem to discourage the Student Princes from intimidating our quarterbacks and as a result, force them to make bad passes. The schedule does not get any easier with the Otters traveling to Bexley to face Capital who is also 0-2. The last football vicotry over the Crusaders was in 1963. Since then about all Otterbein has been able to accomplish is winning the fights in the bleachers. I sincerely hope the Otterbein College football team can regain some of their pride in themselves and give a 10% effort, coaches included. If not, this season will be just like recent ones: not worth talking about. Sincerely,

Brett Morehead

McGovern HQ Open To the Editor: Eleven million young adults across America have for the first time the right to vote. We should all realize the importance of this new right and the importance our votes will play in this election. Apathy towards the political process should not bury the voices of protest who have screamed for a right in determining the future of this great land. Register and vote . Vote to shape the kind of America you want now and for your children. To get more young adults in the political process the Young Democrats have opened a McGovern-Shriver Headquarters in Room 5 in the basement of Towers Hall . Students of Otterbein will run the campaign on campus and in the Westerville area. Our office will be open from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. or call 891-5691. Get yourself involved! We are working for this McGovern-Shriver ticket

because it will be an administration which "Will Make America Happen Again." These rren are traveling the country seeking and speaking the truth. The Democratic Party is the party of reform and the party which works for the people. The Otterbein campus, the Westerville area and the entire American society have the right to know the truth about their government. America needs an administration which is responsive to the needs of the American people and not the needs of big business, special interests or power groups. For this reason the Young Democrats are now challenging the Young Republicans to a debate on the issue. We would like to see a special campus convocation open to the campus and the· Westerville area develop from this. Nixon has refused to face McGovern and The American public in a debate on the issues. We ask why?? Once · the facts are aired and the people can see a clear choice. Eleven million votes can change history . . . .Or not change history. Let's not throw away this power we now have! Sincerely,

Co-Chairmen, The Young Democrats of Otterbein Keith Shoemaker Mike Wasylik

Ushers Wanted To the Editors: I am in charge of the usher program for the symphony. We would like to invite your students to serve their community and symphony by ushering for our concerts.

Students may usher for the Friday or Saturday night series or the three Sunday afternoon Battelle series concerts. Please call the office for more information: 224-3291. Sincerely,

Film Review ·Faulted To the Editor: Having just returned from seeing the movie "The New Centurians", I thought it appropriate to reply to John Aber's "analysis" of this recent movie. First of all I can't realize how he can say that the movie was trying to portray a big city's police force. Joseph Wimbargh, the author of the novel on which the movie was based, was a policeman himself. I would like to ask John what exactly does he think a policeman's job is? Sure they might get paid for arresting whores and wrestling with child abusers, but the movie showed a lot more than that. The movie showed how a newly recruited policeman had to go out in the big city and fight crime, but it also showed how two men, George ·C. Scott and Stacy Keach, had to fight and struggle to be people too; not only in their jobs but in their homes, with their wives, children, etc. John Aber's statement that the movie showed how it was impossible to see themselves as people is completely unreal. Aber states that the movie goes only from one action-filled scene to another and left the audience completely confused. He says that the movie did this in an attempt to salvage it from being another "police drama." I thought the director of the movie did an excellent job in using transition scenes, not a policeman with a gun shooting at someone or beating up a criminal, but ones showing their own personal struggles at home and while off-duty. This was done to try and portray a real policeman's life - 24 hours a day, not just when he carried a gun and badge. Do you really think George C. Scott's message in killing himself was only the fact that his best friend, Keach, couldn't go drinking with him? Did you ever think he might have been confused about retiring from the force and was turning to his best friend for some advice as to his




making up his mind what he should try and continue doing? John's account of Stacy Keach's falling in love with the black nurse in two minutes is made up to sound like it is impossible to do, when he makes the statement "falls helplessly in love". You had better open up your eyes, because this interracial relationship is happening today! As to it happening in two minutes, it mi3ht have only taken that in actual screen time, but the scenes portraying the relationship signified three or four weeks of a fulfilling and lasting relationship. My suggestion to John Aber is to go and see the movie again. This time look at it realistically, not symbolically!! Sincerely,

Jack Wagner

Tradition Seen to be by Sue Risner

What is the matter with tradition? Why does it seem to fade a little more each year? Is it the conditioned attitudes of the students or the confliction with l, individual interests that is ' their causing this almost basic part of college life to die out? In finding answers to these It questions, many freshmen were asked to respond to questions concerning the bonfire, Scrap Day, and beanies. They were also, asked for their opinions concerning the meaning of these traditional events. The unanimous response to the bonfire was that it did much to unify the freshmen, .but there :I were things which needed to be improved. If the garbage-

throwing was completely eliminated, there would have been a greater number of freshmen attending. The unity of the class at the bonfire was either a result of the students working together to make it or was a result of the fact that they were all "in the same boat." Many of the freshmen liked the idea of the beanies and felt that the rule should be enforced. An equal number felt that it was a silly tradition that had lost its meaning. Much of this loss re sul te d from h-aving an irtsufficient supply of beanies on hand to be sold to the frosh. There was no general complairtt on Scrap Day. Many complimented the amount- of

spirit and participation. Everyone seemed to think Scrap Day .was the most successful tradition because it gave the freshmen a chance to mingle with other students in a friendly atmosphere. Su ggl!stions concerning the cause of the lack of participation include apathy, fear of ridicule, and fear of mistreatment. Some expressed belief that making it an undesirable duty rather than something to be enjoyed effected participation greatly. A number of students did not participate because they felt that the events were stupid and immature. .Now that we know the problem, what are we going to do about it?

Harold & Maude Straddles the Line by John Aber

There i uper- lick music by Cat teven . much bla k comedy (consi ting mainly of acted-out suicides). very good performances, and an innovative plot (relating the vici situdes of an unlikely love affair between and eighty-year-old woman and a boy of nineteen). Due to poor promotion. Harold and Maude was not a financial uccess - but it could have been. It also could have been and excellent film but it's not. It is needless to plunge into a long and tedious plot recapitualtion. Suffice it to say that Harold and Maude do everything together - and finally fall in love. Fine , that's nice and as it should be. However, there are obvious pitfalls awaiting anyone who depicts this type of love affair on the screen. Unfortunately, the film stumbles into almost all of them. There is an extremely fine line that separates high seriousness and farce - and if Harold and Maude was intended to be a farce, everything in the film would have worked. However, director Hal Ashby has tried to make a serious film and ended up with a farcical movie. No one would ever have known the film's intent if it had not been for one thing: its attempt at the elevation (or reaffirmation - if you will) of Harold's life. Harold, you see, is a lonely boy who spends his time going to funerals. In

The crux of the problem is that we laugh so hard and long during the course of this change - that we either miss it entirely or cannot believe it has happened. Watching wrinkled Maude lock horns with a motorcycle cop is very funny (Ruth Gordon, who plays Maude, is an excellent comic actress). Watching Harold blow bubbles in bed the morning after he consummates his love for Maude is very funny too. In fact, everything is so funny that

we have no time to watch a relationship develop. I suppose we are supposed to accept it in good faith. But that just doesn't happen. · As I have previously stated, Harold begins the movie hating everything - and ends up plucking his banjo and loving life. As he watches his hearse burn at the bottom of a cliff (an obvious symbol of his old self), we should feel ebullient and exhilerated - for a human being has changed (supposedly) for the better. Unfortunately, at that point, all I could do was laugh, and wonder why. Perhaps Cat Stevens was wailing too loudly.

Mickey Mouse Hat Just Doesn't Make , It for Graduation (CPS) _ People going thro~gh college comme nce~ent hexerc11ses ft dream of usmg t ose ast 0 enments to symbolic ally mo Ss their dissa tis ·ract·ion of expre the whole system.

In February, 1970, he had been emoved as editor of the ~redigger, CSM' s student newspaper, for running mate?al which President Orio Childs deemed O bjectionable. The running dispute between childs and Yench over the material which Yench printed eventually led to Yench ' s actions on graduation day . Yench had one summer course to comple te to fulfill the requirements for his degree, but he and others in that position were allowed to participate in the June e x ercise since no

similar ended the summer session. When Yench arrived at the exercises, wearing his Mickey Mouse replacement for the flat cap, the exercises proceeded as usual with one minor change. Y ench's name wasn't called. Being last on the alphabetical list, Yench waited a bit, then mounted the platform, shook the presiding, officer's hand, announced himself as a graduating student, and then returned to his seat. Days later, Yench was advised that his actions were a violation of his probation, and that he was, in effect, expelled from the school. Y ench's answer was " What probation?" The supposed probation stems from the removal of Yench as "Oredigger" editor. From the beginning of his editorship in the fall of 1969, Y ench came under heavy criticism from President Childs, who even instigated an investigation of the paper by the CSM publication board. Child's disposition toward the paper didn't improve when the publication board reported that " Oredigger" was "stimulating a healthy give and take of ideas" on campus. Shortly thereafter , Yench ran

a direct quote under a picture of cheerleaders which said: "Slip it to 'em, Miners!" He may have quoted the girls accurately , but it didn't set well with Childs, who made his feelings known both to the women and Yench. In February of 1970, Yench ran a direct quote of a Canadian college president saying: "Either you clean up this paper, or I will." Childs then put his foot down on February 12, 1970, an eme'rgency session of the CSM student senate was called and Yench was voted out. On February 19, a meeting was held to determine disciplinary action against Yench, who was already in the process of launching another paper, 'The Technocrat'.

Frosh Flame

On by Sue Delay

ln a day and age when old traditions seem rather antiquated on a 1:ollege campus, the fre hman bonfire at Otterbein till belongs. Although the spirit of the fro h got off to a low tart and the general attitude towards wearing beanies was one of resistance, the bonfire truiy united the members of the class of '76 for the first time in the school year. The idea of running for a seemingly endless period of time

between two guys wearing pajamas (or girls wearing pajamas, as the case may be) around a roaring fire while a few snotty upperclassmen (who shall remain nameless) scream "Run little freshman, run" may not appeal to your average man in the street and especially to your average student at a large state university. The idea, I must admit, did not strike me as being particularly the most exciting way to spend a Friday night.

that is, until I actually found myself being pulled in two by two male freshmen while screaming 0-T-T-E-R-B-E-I-N at the top of my gasping lungs. As I look back now, it was an experience I will never forget. As a matter of fact, it ranks right up there with sitting on Santa's knee for the first time, at age four.

Now we freshmen officiall to Otterbein. The bo r·ireY belong d 1• d something that n no acceptance letters from th Admissions Office ' or scatterede . weanng of beanies or attend of classes can do; it brough~n~ together in spirit and that's wha~ it's all about.
