Season Of Entertainment III

This year's Season of Entertainment III has seen a big growth in student participation and general attendance. The basic purpose of the Season of Entertainment in terms of students is to create more participation and involvement. It also brought a lot of community people to our campus. It takes several months of planning to determine the shows brought to Westark each year. The SAC has to consider the budget, the appeal to the people, and also have consideration of other organizations who bring productions to Fort Smith, 'Economics has a lot to do with the shows we bring to Westark," St^ ey Jones commented. 28

The SAC brought five productions this year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; National Opera, The Chinese Magic Circus, Annie Get Your Gun starring Helen Cornelius and Dave Rowland, Babes in Toyland, and Blues in the Night starring Delia Reese, Also included in the Season of Entertainment were two band concerts, two choral concerts, and three plays. Each year the Season of Entertainment shows have been free to students, but there is a possibility that there will be a fee for students at a discount of the original price, 'There are always more students at the productions they have to pay for than the ones that are free. They feel that they are getting more for their money," Jones said, by Angie Ozelmas 29

Westark Joins In Raft Race The Student Activities Council sponsored a group of students to participate in the United Way Raft Race 1983, The raft race is a community project to raise money for area charities.

Just A Swangin With My Favorite Memory Neither rain nor cold winds could keep the 10,000 people with concert tickets away from Harper Stadium, Saturday night April 7, Fans from many miles away came to see and hear Merle Haggard and John Anderson perform. It was a night that will not be forgotten very soon. My boyfriend, Ric, with camera and I arrived at 7 o'clock expecting to best the crowds. We didn't, the place was packed. As we walked through the backstage gate and out beside the stage, the crowd went crazy. They were waving, smiling, and yelling. All this went over our heads-to the camera crew above us filming the event. We wandered around for an hour before the emcee announced, 'Here's John Anderson." John started his show with his 1980 hit She Just Started Liking Cheating Songs, The crowd was pleased when Anderson performed other hits like; I Just Came Home to Count the Memories, Would You Catch a Falling Star?, Chicken Truck, Coin' Downhill and his latest Let Somebody Else Drive. But I doubt if anyone within 50 miles was able to sleep through the roar as the Anderson band started into the recent #1 hit Swangin'. After John's show, we went to his bus to meet his band. By the way, John sounds the same whether he's talking or sang in'. During the intermission we heard from Freddy Powers, The Strangers and Dana Haggard. Ms. Haggard was never introduced so we never knew who she was. She is Merle's daughter. The Hag arrived in Fort Smith before noon that day agd went downtown to a local store to buy a pair of boots. He was caught by participants in Fort Smith Pride's ''clean sweep." Haggard, being the good natured person he is, picked up a broom and helped sweep Garison Avenue. That night shortly after ten the

Hag was on stage singing his 1969 classic Silver Wings to start his show. Haggard has too many hits to perform them all in full in one concert, so many songs were combined into a medley. After the concert we stood in knee deep mud, rain, and cold winds, inhaling exhaust fumes from Anderson's bus, waiting to meet Mighty Merle. After 30 minutes Hag's manager came to the door and said 'Suzanne, Merle is ready for you and your friend." I learned that I have lots of 'friends.' People I've never seen before said things like; "I'm with her" and "I'm her sister" trying to follow me onto the bus. I wonder if these same people would loan me a dollar. When inside the bus. Merle introduced us to his dog, 'Tuffy." We sat and talked for a while, during which-time Merle asked me to thank everyone for attending the show. Merle said "without the D. J.'s that play my songs and the consumers that buy them I would not be in Fort Smith." by Suzanne V. Parker

Westark Olympics This yean the Student Activities Council sponsored the first annual Westark Olympics, There was five different events â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an obstacle course, a three-legged race, cow chip tossing, mud wrestling, and a greased pig race. The winners were awarded Olympic type medals.

It also helps international students become closer friends,'' says Khoi Ta, Not only students, but other people from different cultures living in the community participated in the dinner. Many local companies and grocers were helpful in donating items for the dinner, Westark cafeteria, faculty, and counselors were also in on the activities.

Student Nurses Westark offers a nine month program in which students can receive a technical certificate qualifying them as members of an operating room team. Formally called operating room technicians, their primary function is to pass surgical instruments to the surgeon as he operates.

They must also be able to apply the principles of aseptic techniques and practice asepsis. For this they study basic microbiology to understand the process, prevention and control for infection.

Westark's chapter of PTK, chartered in April 1947, is one of the oldest in the state. It is classed as an honorary group whose main purpose is to recognize scholarship among students. In order to be a member of PTK, one must be enrolled in college with an accumulated 12 hours of work leading to a recognized degree. One must also have a grade point of 3,5 and have established academic excellence. Students join by invitation only, and then there is a $15 membership fee. The fee provides certificates, membership manuals, and quarterly magazines for members. Each year, the Fort Smith Chamber of Commerce honors two year students at a banquet. At commencement, PTK members will be noted on the program, wear a gold cord, and have a honor society seal on their diploma, by Angie Ozelmas

Following m the footsteps of the Houston Cougars, the Lions basketball team has formed a new fraternity called the Kappa Jammas, The name of the fraternity came from a suggestion by a freshman center Terrance 'Tree" Turnage, '7 got the idea from practice this summer while we were fastbreaking and playing around/' Turnage said, "we also use it as a power move to the basket," Living up to their name. Kappa Jamma got off to a good start this year as West ark had several blocked shots, and a thrilling slam dunk by Rodney Reese at the buzzer in the opening game against Southern Tech, by Brad Myers

The Lions were edged out in several close games, dropping a heart- breaking six games by six points or less. When you take those games and put them in the win column, a more experienced team could have gone 28-3, 'We lost several dose games that Westark fans have been accustomed to winning in the past," Kaundart pointed out. ''But this is the first time that weve had to start this many inexperienced players. A freshman doesnt have the consistency of a sophomore, and we made some mistakes at the ends of some games that cost us." One of the reasons for the high loss total was the schedule. The Lions played one of the toughest in the nation, including five teams that were ranked in the top 20 at some point in the year. "We always play a good schedule, but this year was even tougher," Kaundart pointed out. "This year was a good year for our conference; we probably had more good teams in it than ever before. And when you added in schools like Seminole, Walker College, and Crowder, it makes it tough." by Brad Myers

That's about the only way to describe the 1984 season for the Lady Lions. The women roundballers had never had a winning season, but Coach Jo Bottoms led this year's squad to an impressive 17-O record and defeated the No. I team in the nation. Tm really proud of the effort that our girls put out this year/' Bottoms said. "This was one of the hardest working groups Vve ever had. When it came time for a game, they were totally serious and they gave it their all all of the time." The one-two duo of Sandra Bogan and Sarah Raible were two big reasons for Westark's success. Bogan, a 5'S" freshman from Marianna. and Raible. a 57" sophomore from Charlestom. finished first and second in the Bi-State east conference scoring charts, averaging over 40 points per game between them. But Bogan and Raible didn't do it alone. Freshman Pam Watkins and sophomore Karen Stephens were there to provide valuable defense and rebounding, and freshman Tonya Clements provided a stabilizing factor from her point guard slot, freshman Jalynn Miller played well after becoming eligible at the semester break, and Tanya Wilson, Diane Walker and Rhoda Bailey supplied depth to the squad. The Lady Lions served notice of their abilities right off the bat when they won their first three games by lopsided margins. It was the best start ever for a Bottoms team, and it was merely a hint of things to come. "I was surprised at how well we came out and played early in the season,'' Bottoms pointed out. ''We jumped out and played extremely well in our first three games. As a matter of fact, we didn't really top those performances until late in the season."

On Feb. /A the Lady Lions topped any performance ever put together by the Wes tarl< women. Bottoms' squad came into the game with a 13-11 record. Connors State stepped into the Westarl< Fieldhouse with a 24-0 record and the nation's No. I ranl<ing. But the Lady Lions tool< an early lead and hit a school record 23 of 25 free throw attempts to hold on for a stunning 70-60 victory. "The Connors game was a nice reward for the girls," Bottoms reflected. "We realized that we were limited in some areas, but we tried to overcome our deficiencies by hard work. The girls played hard for 40 minutes that night." The win saved the Lady Lions some momentum and they went on to win five of their last six regular season games. But a heartbreaking 79-66 loss to Phillips County in the opening round of the state tournament brought the season to an abrupt end. "I was real disappointed for the girls after the state tournament," Bottoms said. "It was a shame to see them lose after they had played so well for the past month. Going into the tournament I really thought we had a chance to win." by Brad Myers

Baseball When ft rains, it pours. And it poured on the Lions baseball team in 1984. The Lions had 28 games cancelled or postponed by wet grounds, more than enough to annoy coach Bill Crowder. Tve fiever seen it rain this much before," Crowder said. 1 thought that it was cold and bad last year, but this year tops everything. It seemed like it would be nice for two or three days, but every time we were scheduled to play it would rain." The Lions had trouble in closing in for the kill in many instances, managing to sweep only three doubleheaders. But it was a late season tailspin that accounted for the 19-29 record, the first losing season in Crowder's 19 years at the helm. 'When it cleared up at the end of the season we had to squeeze in a lot of games in a short period of time and we just got tired," Crowder said. ''When you get in a situation like that you have to have eight or nine good pitchers, and not many junior colleges have that many." But the weather also played a major factor. "There's no question that all the rainouts affected us," he said. It threw off our hitters because it was so wet that they couldn't even take batting practice. Then it

threw off our pitching because it was too wet to throw. We tried to work out as much as possible, but there's only so much you can do indoors." The Lions were at the .500 mark when a road trip into Kansas produced a split with Labette College and a sweep of Fort Scott to run Westark's record to 15-14. But the Lions hit the skids from there, dropping 15 of their last 19 games and II of their last 12. think we should be in good shape for next year," Crowder pointed out. *'We lost a few games because we tried to play a lot of people, which I think is important. We let a few kids get in there and build up some experience that will help us out a lot in the future." Westark had several top performers, including shortstop John Marsh and catcher Skip Ray. Marsh ted the Lion hitters, while Ray impressed several major league scouts with his outstanding defensive play. The squad also feature the one-two pitching punch of Ranee Bighorse and Rob Gee to go along with the power hitting of Doug Soever, who cracked eight home runs, including five in a nine-game stretch. "We produced a few kids who will be able to go on to four-year schools and play," Crowder said. "That's one of our goals every year. If we can bring a kid in here and help him continue his education and improve on his baseball skills, we feel like we*ve done our job." by Brad Myers

Some of the soccer students would want to keep this picture of their coach learning all about soccer. A few others might want to keep record of how much money they paid back to the library for tax purposes. And others still might want to remember the book store as it was at the beginning of the semester when all the students

A student pays an overdue book fine at the library.

were rushing to buy used books so they wouldn't have to buy expensive new ones, or the book store at the end of the semester when students were rushing back to sell their books back to the book store only to find out they wouldn't buy most of them back because there would be a new book in the fall. Yes, those frustrating days at the end of the semester â&#x20AC;&#x201D; how we love them all.
