Las Vegas is more than a tourist playground. This unique city
offers a learning experience incomperable to any other. It allows us
to take a chance. An education at the University of Nevada Las
Vegas is not just a learning process but rather a combination of
challenges and interractions between each other and the outside
The diversity of Las Vegas is apparent not only in its recreational
and geographical features but also in its people, lifestyles and ideas.
This offers the opportunity for exploration, understanding and
growth. Las Vegas is a vacation unlimited; one day can include
skiing at Mt. Charleston, boating at Lake Mead, exploring in wild
country and experiencing the excitement in the casinos, where one
hours is all that seperates these adventures.

Concert Series Opener
Joan Armatrading appeared live in concert
on the Artemus Ham Hall stage. The first in a
series of concerts presented by CSUN; Miss
Armatrading delighted the audience bringing
them to'their feet for a thundering ovation. Bob
Lobello, a student at the University, opened the
show with several original tunes.
Armatrading played songs from all her albums,
including her latest, Me Myself I. Her
music ranged widely in style from semi-classical
songs like "I need you" to reggae infused
works like "Simion."
Joan's use of her guitar, of her voice and even
of melodic and lyrical content defied most
The New York Times called Joan Armatrading
"perhaps the best unknown pop star in the
business." Newsweek says Armatrading has
single handedly stretched the boundaries of
pop music. CSUN brought Miss Armatrading
to Las Vegas and more important to the University.
Country Music Comes To UNLV
On the starlit evening of Sept. 6, country music
found a home on top of the P.E. complex. Cowboy
hats and boots were abound as couples twostepped
to the sounds of "Country Fever".
The event was sponsored by the Sigma Chi
Fraternity and CSUN and was attended by over
one-thousand foot-stomping students.
The fraternity spent the afternoon setting the
stage for the country extravaganza which came
off as one of the years best "hoe downs".
When Mugs Were Raised High
October 9-11 CSUN Entertainment and Programing
presented Octoberfest. The fest
kicked off Thursday at 10:30a.m. with the
opening ceremonies which included the
crowning of the prince of Octoberfest, beer
chugging contests, and the famous German
Bratwurst eating contest. The beer, food and
traditional German music set the tone for the
festive weekend. A high-light of the Bavarian
event was the infamous "Fox". This irrepressible
balladier was preluded by numerous proteges
in an "amatuer Fox contest".
The celebration continued Friday evening in
the upstairs area of the Moyer Student Union
where the beer chugging, food and music continued
into the wee hours of the morning. The
partying picked up again at 9:00p.m. that Saturday
T-shirts and mugs were on sale the entire
week as souvenirs of what was to be one of the
wildest celebrations in UNLV's history. EIN

The River Of Beer Flowed
1980 will forever be remembered as the year of the
great flood. That is when ATO and CSUN flooded Las
Vegas with the annual Budweiser bash. This traditional
event came after the Rebel football team celebrated a
victorious win over a rival Fresno State.
The P.E. Complex held up like Noah's Ark, playing
host to almost 3000 beer absorbing passengers. Beer
contests, beer prizes and more beer helped the students
celebrate the winning game and the end of the first
two weeks of school. Budman joined in the festivities
giving away posters, flyers, frisbees and numerous
other Bud paraphinalia.
Just as Noah boarded pairs of exotic wildlife, the
rock band SHAROD sparked their own wildlife with
their powerful sounds. Sharod rocked the crowd "all
night long" and they still wanted more.
The great Flood of 1980 will not be forgotten for a
long time. At least not until the 1981 Season Opener
Bash. Wear your life jackets!
The Rise Of The Roman Empire
The days of ancient Rome were relived as UNLV celebrated
Homecoming in the first week of November. What was once
Moyer Student Union was transformed to resemble a Roman
palace. Great white pillars and grape vines were scattered
throughout the building.
The Homecoming week was commenced with a Roman
Slave Sale, sponsored by the UNLV cheerleaders. "Dancin
Dave" Gist was the first slave on the auction block to be sold.
After the last of the cheerleaders had been sold for a price of
$80.00, the Homecoming queen candidates were introduced.
Throughout the week CSUN provided ambrosia and entertainment
for the citizens of the Roman Palace. Wine, cheese,
fruit and lamb were offered while the UNLV Jazz ensemble
played. Events such as a chariot race and a discus throwing
contest were included in the festivities. The New Aces professional
frisbee team, flew in to partake in the fun by putting on
a frisbee exhibition.
On Friday, Homecoming Eve, the citizens of Rome partook
in a formal ball at the luxurious Caesars Palace. The Dick Sax
orchestra played while the Ballen Brothers magicians entertained.
The music, song and merriment highlighted the evening.
On Homecoming day, the Rebel Roman empire was ready to
conquer Wyoming. The victorious Rebels defeated the Cowboys
by a score of 33 to 26.
The highlight of the evening was the crowning of Miss
Laura Pitman, (sponsored by O.J.'s Diners), as.Homecoming
Queen. The beautiful queen was attended by
Michelle Harshaw (Sigma Chi) and Joanna Riley (Dorm).
The spoils of the conquest were celebrated at a punk
toga victory party. Two new wave groups, the Units and
the Donuts were brought in from San Francisco for the
The reign of the Rebel Roman empire is one that will
not be forgotten as Rebel Caesar Rad Smith declared fun
and merriment for all in the desert Rome.
Male Strippers Perform
The juice dance with its male strippers turned out
to be an extremely controversial event. Before approval
was granted for the dance, limitations were
placed upon the performers by the student senate.
These limitations stipulated that the strippers were
only allowed to strip down to bathing suits rather
than the usual G-string. Also the dancers could not
circulate among the crowd and had to have a $150.00
bond placed on them as insurance.
In spite of these limitations, the strippers still
managed to pull off an entertaining evening before
the mostly female audience.
Presidential Candidate Ed Clark
Speaks To Students
During an election year, politics infiltrate
the UNLV campus. A highlight of
the political year was a campaign stop by
Libertarian Presidential Candidate Ed
Addressing a crowd of over 300, Clark
presented the Libertarian philosophy on
various issues. The presidential hopeful
stressed such issues as the draft, foreign
policy and the defense posture. After his
address, Clark answered questions from
the audience with local media on hand to
record the event.
The event was organized by local members
of the Libertarian party with help
from CSUN. Information labels, campus
wide posters, buttons and plenty of leg
work insured a strong crowd for the Libertarian
Crepes, Candlelight And Coffee
Power Outage Closes UNLV
Where Were You When The Lights Went Out?
Many UNLV students, faculty and administrators
had the day off when an
electrical power failure closed the majority
of campus orientations and buildings.
The power failure affected the entire
campus except for White Hall, the
Education building and the McDermott
Vice President of Academic Affairs
Dale Nitzchel stated that the electrical
failure was disruptive to the academic
curriculum of the faculty and students.
Some of the faculty were upset due to the
loss of class scheduling and work time.
Student activities were altered from
work to an early weekend. Most students
questioned said they enjoyed the day off,
but wished they would have known before
they got out of bed. Other students
were informed by the radio or phone.
Some students were annoyed because
they had studied all night before, only to
find that their class exams had been rescheduled.
New Senate Session Begins
Results of the CSUN Senate
elections were released only a few
hours after the polls closed. In the
previous years, ballots had been
counted by hand with the counting
often going on into the night.
For this election, a computer was
used, the ballots and computer
time was donated by the Clark
County School District.
Twelve percent of the CSUN
members, 647 students voted in
the election. This was the first year
totals could be obtained.

Universities, and the University of Innsbruck.
Supports Athletic Department
For those fortunate enough to be there, the 7,500 seat Aladdin
Theatre for the Performing Arts was the Arena in which one of the
finest shows ever performed, occured. This star-studded event was in
fact the sixth annual Benefit Concert for UNLV's Athletic Program —
but the main attraction was Frank Sinatra, and of course some friends
he just happened to bring along.
At 9:00 pm the curtain opened, revealing a 32 piece orchestra,
warming us with a tune which actually turned out to be the introduction
of the Master of Ceremonies, Flip Wilson. After a hilarious
opening monologue Mr. Wilson brought out the first performer of
the evening, "the dynamic Marlene Ricci". Next to appear on the
stage was "the man who has tied a yellow ribbon around the heart of
America" Tony Orlando (minus Dawn and mustache). Ol'Blue eyes
sang a bevvy of his hits, many that he had made popular in the 40's
and 50's. Other entertainers that evening included: Bill Cosby, Tony
Bennet, Joan Rivers, and Wayne Newton.
The evening came to an end, Flip Wilson was back to say the
performers had given so much that night, the audience could not
possibly absorb any more. "Strangers", Wilson said, "say good-bye,
friends say so long," and with that we were beckoned to return next
Students Kept Pumping
The Nevada Blood Service in conjunction with
CSUN sponsored a Bloodrive in the Moyer Student
Union Lounges. The Drive was highlighted by the
performances of the Jazz Sound of Mr. Russ Martino
and his band. The Entertainment and Programming
board provided free cantalope and ice cream to
The goal of the Fall 1980 Bloodrive was 150 pints.
Although we fell short of the goal with only 143
pints of blood the event served its purpose.
The drive was not as successful as the February
1980 Bloodrive where we exceeded the set goal by 24
One Man Show
This year, Vincent Price came to the stage as
Oscar Wilde in John Gay's "Diversions and
Delights". Price gave a superior performance
as he captured Wilde toward the end of his life
giving a lecture in an old concert hall. "Diversions
and Delights" presented Oscar Wilde as
only Vincent Price could portray him.
Price also lectured to the theatre students
and faculty on his "life in the theatre". As he
spoke his presence could be felt throughout the
room. He began by calling the theatre a hard
life. He began his career at 23 in a little play in
Throughout his career, Price performed in
many tales by Edgar Allan Poe and other writers.
He was in 105 movies. He concluded his
lecture by saying that someone who is not interested
in the theatre, does not have any soul

Lady Mud Wrestling
Mudslinging Takes On A New Meaning
Mudslinging took on a new meaning this year
when O.J.'S Diners and Sigma Chi sponsored
Lady Mud Wrestling.
Some of the expectant audience pulled chairs
up to the edge of the stage only to find they would
have stayed much cleaner standing in the back, as
mud was flung out into the audience.
The Girls who wrestled also wrestled part-time
at Bogies Nightclub. They presented themselves
much the way strippers do, with background music
and props. The clothes came off until they
were stripped down to black body suits. Ocassionally
the girls would tease and come down into
the audience for tips from intrigued male observers.
A box much resembling a child's sandbox was
set up on the ballroom stage to hold the wrestlers.
The girls entered the box and got on their knees.
With a blow from the referee's whistle, the wrestling
The mess was kept to a minimum. The audience
left, satisfied, many with smiles on their

An Experience In Black Heritage
In keeping with the National movement towards
acknowledgement of Black Heritage, the Alpha Kappa
Sorority inc. together with CSUN presented Black
History Week. This second annual event was celebrated
February 16-20th. It was kicked off with a series of
Black Theatre sketches entitled - "What Happens to a
dream deferred" - Black History in Perspective. This
production was directed and produced by UNLV student,
Al Williams. Movies, music and lectures by
Black leaders commemorated black achievement
booths, in Las Vegas and throughout the Nation. The
festivities closed with an afternoon concert given by
"Soul Connection Band." Over one hundred UNLV
students gathered in the Moyer Student Union to participate.
Julian Bond was born in Nashville, Tennessee, on Jan. 14, 1940. While attending Morehouse College in Atlanta, he
became active in the Civil Rights Movement in the South. He participated in the voting drives, sit-ins and other
activities of the movement. The movement gave way to action within the system.
Bond has spearheaded a number of grass-roots campaigns to foster full participation in the political process by
minorities. "We are changing the color of Southern politics," he explains. "The way to do that is not to go after the big
jobs but to concentrate on the little ones closer to the people. If enough Blacks are elected at the grass-roots level, it's
bound to have a major impact on politics at the top."
Mr. Bond spoke to a capacity filled room in the True Love Missionary Baptist Church. He was presented through a
grant from the Nevada Humanities Committee and sponsored by the Theta Theta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa
Alpha Sorority, Inc.
1981 Mardi Gras Festivities at UNLV were ushered

The Spirit of Old New Orleans
Whether it be sitting in the pouring rain at
the Silverbowl on a Saturday eventing, watching
a competitive swim meet in the McDermott
Plaza, or relaxing on a warm spring day on the
Roger J. Barnson memorial field, UNLV fans
are always loyal to their team, rain or shine.
Fans are fans, but Rebel fans can be fanatical.
UNLV style is ardent not only in red and
white clothing and souvenirs, but also in financial
support, and game time entertainment.
These things all add to the thrill and excitement
experienced while watching the running
Rebels. But they come and go with each of the
athletes while the spirit of the fans lingers on.
With each year the pride of the student body
grows and the UNLV spectators become an
Quality Among Staff Producers No. 1 Program
Behind every strong athletic program lies a strong
athletic department. And at UNLV, where athletics
are ranked up near the top in activities, there are
very capable people fulfilling these jobs in the department.
Working to keep UNLV's athletic department the
best around is Athletic Director Al Negratti. When
he came to UNLV, he was faced with a $570,000
deficit in the athletic budget. In eight months, he
has cut that amount to about $350,000 and it is
decreasing every day.
Assisting Negratti are Associate AD, Wayne
Pearson and assistants Dennis Finfrock and Sherman
Bennett. Pearson's main reponsibilities is that
of the fundraising department, which brings in big
revenue for the athletic department.
Finfrock became assistant athletic director when
Roger Barnson died in a tragic automobile accident
on March 14,1980. He is in charge of making travel
arrangements for the football and basketball teams
along with working with the women's sport program
Bennett was promoted to this post from ticket
manager by Negratti earlier this year. Among his
duties are that of athletic promotions as well as
looking over the ticket department.

Rebels Face Tough
WAC, PAC-10 Foes
The 1980 Rebel team arrived on campus and
began practicing in early August. With a previous
season record of 9-1-2 the team had its
pride to hang onto and the hope of becoming a
championship team in the future.
Six starters returned from the previous years
offensive team. The team ranked third among
NCAA Division I teams in yards per game
with 472.1. Defense had only 4 starters back
but considering they allowed only 25 pts per
game last season thats outstanding.
The remainder of the team although undeniably
talented, their talents had not matured and
few had been proven on a football field in front
of thousands of screaming fans. Despite the
doom and gloom predicted by those who think
they know about football, the Rebels pulled
together some pretty impressive players.
Quarterbacks Larry Gentry and Mark Gabrisch
were back this year. Keyvan Jenkins,
Artis Carhee and Michael Morton returned as
running backs along with receivers Sam
Greene, Darral Hambrick, Lance Cooper and
Jeff Speck. The line was composed of Art Plunket,
Dave Jones, centers Jordan Phee and Sean
Sloan and guards Jeff Stewart and Charles
The defense, usually the glue that holds together
the Rebel gameplan, returned only four
starters. Backs Richard Jackson, Bryan Human,
Charles Jarirs and Allan Tomlinson, linebackers
Mike Walker, Mike Johnson, and linemen
Bob Barrera, Jeff Justice, Phil O'Neil and
Julius Frnches helped fill in the gaps.
On the special teams several people helped
in those areas of the Rebel effort. Robert Cobb,
Mike Walker, Henry Thorns, extra point kicker
Keith Reardon and long snapper Bubba
The Rebels played three teams this fall who
weren't on last years schedule. One of them,
Brigham Young University, is the four-time
defending WAC champion. The other two were
Oregon, Pac 10 and San Diego State, WAC.
The 1980 UNLV Rebel football team opened
the season with a tremendous team effort in
the Las Vegas Silver Bowl by embarassing
Fresno State University, 35-6.
It was a team effort on both offense and
defense for the Rebels before 19,085 paid attendence
in the season opener. It was indeed a
team effort which helped the Rebels amass 417
yards in total offense.
Junior speedster Michael Morton led the talented
Rebel backfield in rushing with 59 net
yards on just seven carries for an 8.4 per carry
average and one touchdown. Sophomore Mark
Gabrisch came off of the bench for the final 11
minutes of the game as quarterback and completed
five of six passes for 147 net yards and
Senior Flainker Sam, "The Disco Kid",
Greene led the Rebel Receivers with three
catches for 45 net yards and senior tight end
Lance Cooper caught two passes for 40 yards.
On defense, the Big Red "D" forced seven
turnovers. Defensive backs Charles Jarvals,
Richard Jackson and Kieth Slack each had pass
interceptions and Bruce Sears, Mike Johnson,
Marcus Harrison and Henry Thorns each had
The consensus of opinion from Rebel fans, if
not the coaching staff itself, was that UNLV
played better against Fresno State than any
previous season opening game under coach

'INDICATES LETTERS EARNED
Looking back at the roster of the 1980 soccer team,
there was a list of freshman that would make any
By looking at the stats of the year's play, UNLV
soccer coach Vince Hart felt proud knowing the job
that the soccer team did was outstanding for the
experience in collegiate soccer that the team had.
When there are a lot of unexperienced athletes on
a team, there needs to be that one experienced leader
on the field that can take control of the most difficult
Coach Hart found that man in junior Dave Cohen.
He scored nine goals on the year, which led the
team and has an assist to add to that total. His
leadership on the field cannot be measured; stats
can't read that high.
Of course, in the freshman class there are a few
bluechippers which stood out during the season.
Dale Taylor, the Johann Memorial Scholarship recipient,
turned in an outstanding performance in
his freshman year.
Coach Hart, who is in his fifth year here at
UNLV, came within inches of having his soccer
program terminated last year, but he was quick to
state that soccer fans did not give up on the team.
Stated Hart, "It was the community that came out in
support of the program that saved us".

The UNLV Lady Rebel Volleyball team had an outstanding
season this year splitting their dual match
play record at 2-2 and finishing the season with a 6-5-1
record in tournament play.
The somewhat "inexperienced" team of the Lady
Rebels played hard throughout the season and finished
the year with an exciting win over Southern
Utah State College.
Erin Hill, a 5-5 junior setter led the team in a number
of statistics. She led the team in service aces with
24 and also in assists with 433. The University Utah
transfer also had 25 kills on the year.
Kathy Tappe, a 5-9 junior outside hitter had 14 service
acess, 170 kills and 46 digs. Julie Diggins, a 5-7
freshman setter, had 14 service aces, 133 kills and 54
Other outstanding performances were turned in
from Margie Hinnelberg, a 6-2 junior middle blocker
who had a team high 216 kills. Laura Montayre had a
team high 65 digs and Pam Smith connected on 98
With no seniors on the squad and six freshman,
Coach Borda should be one happy person when next

Golf at UNLV tends to take a backseat to some of
the more prestigous sports such as basketball, football
But for nine men on the golf team, nothing beats
And coach Michael "Chub" Drakulich had his
Rebel golf team primed to meet all competition and
ready to do their best.
Mike Hamblin led the Rebels with a 77.7 stroke
average per round. Tom Eubank was second on the
team with a stroke average of 77.8 per round. Mat
Klabacka was third on the team with an 80.9 stroke
With most of the talent on the team coming from
Las Vegas, Drakulich was very fortunate to come up
with a top golfer who came from out-of-state. Such
was the case with Eubank and Rob Kreuger, who
had an 81.3 stroke average. Wes Weston had a
stroke average of 81.0 per round which was good
enough for fourth place.
Carl Von Hake, Rich Seven and Ed Thurow finished
out the team who's best finish had been in the
Annual Falcon Invitational held at the Air Force
Academy when the Rebs finished 13th out of 32
The Rebs finished fourth out of seven teams in
their own UNLV Rebel Classic.

In his first year as the head swim
coach at the University of Nevada,
Las Vegas, Jim Reitz inherited a
small, yet talented, women's program
which featured a nucleus of
eight veterans and newcomers.
Karen Rempal, a 6-0 junior All
American from Southfield, Michigan,
headed the list of Lady Rebel
returnees. Rempal earned All America
honors when she placed at the
1980 AIAW Nationals.
Other veterans who saw action at
the National Meet are 5-7 junior
Joanne Girvin, a breaststroke, 5-4
junior Carrie Pettey, who specializes
in the butterfly and IM, Collen
inapp, a 5-2 junior freestyler, and 5-8
junior Jan Butler, who sees action in
>ackstroke and freestyle events.
Rounding out the list of Lady Rebels
who are returning for another
JNLV season are a trio of freestylers,
5-7 junior Joan Marchinko, 5-4 junior
Joanne Makimoto, and 5-4 sophomore
Filling the final two positions on

Lady Rebel Basketball
A lack of heighth. A new coach. A young team.
There are a few of the reasons why many people were
skeptic about how well the Lady Rebels would do this
Well, Kathie Callaway took care of the heigth problem
and the coaching ability of Shiela Strike took care of the
new coach problem and the leadership of Kathy Ricks, Tina
Glover, Sonia Lykes and Callaway took care of the experience
Ricks, a 5-9 senior forward, is a legitimate All-America
candidate. She recorded a high game of 32 points against the
University of San Diego. Callaway, who stands at 6 foot,
grabbed an amazing 19 rebounds against Eastern Washington
and despite being undersized most of the time, she still
tends to getting her rebounds. Glover, a 5-4 junior guard,
could be called the "catalyst" for the Lady Rebs. Her shooting
as well as her timely passes, get the Lady Rebs going in
Lykes is just a sophomore. But by watching the 5-3 guard
in action, you couldn't tell it. She leads the team in assists
and was a standout in the Round Robin Invitational. Judy
Thomas has also been a sparkplug for the Lady Rebs at the
Helping coach Strike in her first season at UNLV, is a
strong bench. And she isn't afraid to go to it any time in the
game. Nita Allen, Delia Andrade, Lisa Lieder, Liz Mello,
Cindi Powell, Chris Razmic, and Debbie Rohlman provide
the strong bench for the Lady Rebs.
Behind coach Strike is assistant coach Jim Minello, who
was appointed assistant by Strike, who was enthusiastic
about working with Minello.

Lady Rebel Softball
The Lady Rebel Softball team began its second
year of play on March 6th. Second year head coach
Gena Borda had six girls returning to the diamond
after a first year of learning.
Last year UNLV posted a disappointing 2-16 record
playing only 4 games at home due to lack of
facilities. In 1981, the Lady Rebs had a brand new
softball diamond and 14 out of 26 games at home.
UNLV had scheduled such teams as #1 ranked Utah
State University, region 6 runner up University of
Utah, 1977 and 1978 National Champion UCLA,
powerful University of Arizona, and up and coming
Northern Arizona University.
Returning to action for UNLV were: Kathy Wellington
who was the second best batter last year at
259 average, Cindi Powell, Laura Kelley, Missy
loyd, Robin Moxley, Laurie Priest. According to
>orda, "These girls had been there before. They
understand the schedule and had played National
Calibur ball." Borda feels the girls attitudes are very
positive and looks for a successful season.

Just how young is young!
How would it be if there wasn't a
senior on the men's tennis team?
Well Coach Fred Albrecht's 1981 edition
of the Rebel tennis team was
just that—no seniors.
Greg Henderson, Scott Hunter,
Greg Schermerhorn Duke Thorson
and Kyle Wolff were the juniors on
the team with only Henderson the
non-returnee. Hunter and Wolff
have earned two monograms at
UNLV while Waller and Thorson
have earned one tennis letter at
But, the best player on the tennis
team may be Matt McDougall, a 6-1
sophomore, whose specialty was
doubles. McDougall was a sophomore
and the only other player in his
class was Mike Waller.
John Rhodes, a local product from
Clark High School was the only
freshman on the squad.
The Men's team opened up the
1981 campaign with the Lake Havasu
Invitational held in Lake Havasu,
AZ. They traveled to Hawaii for the
Hawaii Invitational and hosted two
tournaments—the Annual Las Vegas
Michelob Light Invitational and the
Annual UNLV Invitational.
The Rebs closed out the season
with the Ojai Tournament on April
24-25 in Ojai, CA.
All in all, it was a season of tests
for Albrecht's "young" Rebel team.

Tark's Shark Tank
The home court of the UNLV Runnin' Rebels is
listed as the Las Vegas Convention Center. The
more common name of the 6,380 seat circular arena
is, "Tark's Shark Tank". A large well printed sign
hangs ominously over the rotunda floor welcoming
visitors to a very frustrating place.
Since Jerry Tarkanian became the coach of UNLV
in 1974, only 7 visitors have recorded wins under
this roof. It is because of that record several visiting
coaches have vowed never to return to the site of
their most humiliating loss. The experience of playing
in "The Shark Tank" is something that will
remain with them for the rest of their lives.
The 1980-81 chapter of the Runnin' Rebels will
play 16 regular season games in the Convention
Center. Many opponents will give UNLV a rough
time this season; to defy the odds and upset the
Rebs at "Tark's Shark Tank".
The 1980-81 Runnin'Rebels is made up of
an unusual bunch of individuals. The starting
8 players consist of 3 sophomores and 5
juniors. The knowledge of not having a senior
should give the Rebs the confidence of
being able to form a dynasty.
The reality of the situation is that UNLV
has had its hands full this season. Jerry Tarkanian
is on the verge of losing his string of
20 win seasons at 18. The frustration of the
Rebel fans is intensified by the frustration
on the face of Coach Tarkanian. The coaching
staff has probably put more time into
this team than any other, but the problem
The regular eight rotation is made up of:
It has been a long time since a
team from UNLV has been in the top
10 of anything. But Rodger DeSart
plans to change that.
DeSart who wrestles in the 118
pound weight class for the Rebels
was ranked as high as number four
in the nation early in the year. Just
before the Rebels scheduled match
against number 7 ranked Oklahoma
State, he fell to number eight. In that
match, DeSart had the pleasure (?) of
wrestling the number one ranked
wrestler in the nation, and the junior
from Waterloo, Iowa gave the number
one from Oklahoma State all he
could handle and DeSart had him
beat until the last three seconds of
the match when his opponent scored
a reversal and DeSart lost his first
dual match ever at UNLV.
After watching Tony Rowland
wrestling in his first match at
UNLV, many people knew that he
was Destined for greatness at the Rebel
mats. And he is. The 150 pound
senior transfer from Middle Tennessee
State lost only one match and
placed first in the UNLV tournament
Coach Dennis Finfrock has the
Rebels up for one of the toughest
schedules that' any wrestling team
has to endure. And he does it with
strong help from his assistant Mark
The Rebs suffered a real blow
when Ernie Ventton injured his knee
in a match and has been forced to sit
out some matches in the season.

UNLV Cross Country
The UNLV Cross Country program has come a long
Last year, the team did not exist. There were not
enough members to make a team so whatever meet
they participated in, they ran as individuals. This year,
they ran as a team and they had a very good showing
for a first year team.
On the women's team Dottie Meyers led the runners
as she finished third in the Biola Invitational. Also
strong is Myrna Nearing, who ran a 18:29 in the 5,000
meters for the best time of the year in that event.
Nearing and Meyers led the team to the Regionals
where they did not finish as high as they had hoped
but they performed as best as they could for a first year
On the other side of the coin, the men's team gave
Coach A1 McDaniels all the nail bitting he could handle.
First of all, Melvin Thompson, a freshman who
was the number one runner for this years Rebs, had to
sit out of this year's squad since he was academically
ineligable and ran all of this years meets unattached.
The number one runner for this years team was
David Lynch, who ran a 31:30 in the 10 kilometer run
earlier in the year. Steve Kurr and Steve Johnson, both
freshmen, also led this years team.
With the nucleus of the team coming back, the cross
country teams should be back to compete at the top of

It's tough to be a winner and even tougher to be a
winner for two years in a row and foremost, it is even
more challenging to win five years in a row. That's
what UNLV head baseball coach Fred Dallimore has
done here at UNLV and this season, has brought out
the best of the 36-year old mentor.
Last season, the Hustlin' Rebel baseball team recorded
53 wins en route to the Midwestern Regionals.
This season the Rebels had to go against the odds to
get to the playoffs again.
Just take a look! The Rebs had lost two starting
pitchers who accumulated 26 of the teams victories,
they had lost three batters who hit over .350 and they
had also suffered by a cutback in funding. So, what did
Dallimore have to make a winner of this season.
He had a great returning nucleus coming back and
some new comers who had big plans for the Rebel's
baseball team. Returning for the Rebs was All-American
Randy Ward, who hit 22 home runs last season,
which was fifteenth in the nation and Bill Max, a
second team district VII honoree, Dave Kinsel, a threeyear
starter at shortstop, and Tom Luna, a senior second
baseman, who found himself battling for a job
with one of the heralded newcomers.
One of such was John Rice, a transfer from Arizona
Western College, a utility man, who could play any
sort of position.

Chris Smith was also a newcomer from Arizona
Western College, Started at both catcher and in the
outfield. Tony Scott was a designated hitter and heir
apparent to Bill Max at third base.
The pitching staff was led by Davis, a fireballing
left-hander from Hawthorne, Nevada, who had a 1.02
earned run average last season in a relief role. The big
question was "Could Dallimore convert Davis from a
short relief man to a Starter?"
For the answer, look at the stats at the end of the
year. Also in the starting rotation for Dallimore's Rebels
were Kurt Mattson, a 6 foot, 170 pound senior,
Chris Hopper, a 6-2, 198 pound sophomore who has
two years left in the Rebel program unless the pros get
to him first.
Two other starting pitchers for the Rebs who saw a
lot of time are Willy Finnegan and Mike Hall. Finnegan,
a 6-1, 183 pound Senior was the proud owner of
the teams mascot, his dog "Jibs". Hall a 6-foot, 170
pound sophomore added the relief that the rebels
Pat Ireland, Michael Martin, Rich Naylor and
Bubba Mattinson, a linebacker for the Football team,
filled out the roster for the Rebels.
The season started with a four game set against
Birgham Young University. These games were considered
important as Rebel fans still remember Nov. 29 (a
54-14 loss to BYU's football team, Jan 3, a 92-90 overtime
loss to BYU's basketball team and Feb. 6, an 86-77
loss to BYU's basketball team.)
UNLV finished the season with a two game series
against state-rivals Nevada-Reno up north.

A Break From Books
The University's intramurals program is designed
to offer the opportunity to participate in
competitive sports to all students, regardless of
ability or skill. The divisions are men's, women's
and co-ed depending on the individual sport.
The fall calendar listed fifteen different programs
ranging from flag football to 10-meter air
pellet shooting. Other activities included
throughout the year were frisbee, bowling, tennis,
volleyball, inner tube water polo, table tennis,
billiards, raquetball, and more.
Directed by Marty Flynn, the intramural staff
finished out its second year. The program is continually
adding new dimensions and increasing
its participants. The football teams alone increased
from 18 last year, to a high of 27 this year.

27 Teams Compete
The intramural football season was off to a great
start with 27 teams competing for the title. As the final
days of the season approached the time for the championships
were here Sigma Chi, last years intramural
champions, were attemptirg an encore performance for
the men's title. In the final game of the Division A
championship, Sigma Chi had their chance in a game
against the tough Holiday Casino Wildcats. The two
teams battled it out with Sigma Chi coming out on top,
winning in the last minutes of the game by a score of
22 to 14.

The Incredible Epilogue Stack Off
What am I doing here??
Over one hundred multi-colored balloons filled the
sky that clear summery day, which signaled for the
event to begin. Tension mounted along with some 300
copies of the 1980 Epilogue on the terrace of the Moyer
Student Union. Competing in the event were three
teams, (Sigma Chi, Sigma Nu and ADPi), consisting of
5 members each. The combination of beer which
flowed in the background and coordination often
made for an interesting combination. The ingenious
ADPi team combined stacking members and books to
take an early lead, only to fall (literally) in defeat to the
Sigma Nu team. All could be considered winners because
each team received complimentary copies of the
ADPi Stacking 'em high.

The Greek Way Of Life
Brothers And Sisters Form Our Everlasting Bond Of Friendship
The Greek system at UNLV is composed of five
fraternities and two sororities. Although this is relatively
small, the membership within each is continually
growing. For many students, Greek life plays
an important role.
The Greek lifestyle saw a decline in the 60's, but
as 1982 approaches there is a movement in the opposite
direction. Despite criticisms either justified or
exaggerated, the Greek system survived to strengthen
the bonds of brotherhood.
Some criticisms are diminised by better understanding
of the system and all its traditions at the
beginning of each school year the Greeks have rush.
Rush.lasts two weeks and prospective members are
extended bids during this time. Fraternity rush is
known for its drunken parties, whereas sorority
rush is less party oriented and more formal.
The end of rush leads to the start of the pledge
program. During the course of the semester, the
pledges plan service, social, fund-raising and infor- Imal activities to achieve a state of cohesiveness
among their "class." One of the most rewarding
parts of Greek membership, the pledge period is a
time for pledges to prove their worth and loyalty to
Before the actual initiation ceremony, "I" Inspiration
week is held for the pledges. This week is full
of "inspiration," "chores", and finally initiation.
Initiation ends the pledge program and the "mystos"
of each fraternity and sorority are revealed to
the new active members. "Mystos" consist of the
mysterious traditions, handshakes, etc. that are
known only by active members nationwide. The
lowly pledges are now considered equal members or
"actives" and must take responsibility for maintaining
the chapter image, character and objectives.
Traditional events that take place within the system
include pinnings (engagement-announcement
ceremony between a fraternity and sorority member)
and the fraternity selection of Sweethearts.
The Greek system will continue to grow with the
addition of a Fraternity Row. The land for the Row
has already been donated. One fraternity has an
architect working on plans for a 40 room house with
plans of completion in 1981. The renewed interest in
the Greek system seems destined to grow despite
the talk, rumors and criticism it receives. The system
attempts to promote brotherhood and unity
among its members along with offering a different
land of experience and a special kind of lifestyle.
Frats Study Harder
Fraternity life may not be like "Animal
House" after all.
In fact, joining a fraternity just may
be the best way to study and insure
graduation, according to Morris Lemay,
director of Oregon State University's
Counseling and Testing Center.
Lemay recently completed a study at
that campus which shows that 54 percent
of the freshmen who joined fraternities
in 1974 graduated, while only 44
percent of non-fraternity freshmen received
Lemay is not quite sure what causes
the discrepancy, but speculates it may
be the close personal ties usually developed
between students at fraternities.

The Sigma Nu Fraternity, Iota Mu Chapter, was
established at UNLV in 1975 with the Cardinal
Principals of Love, Truth and Honour.
Sigma Nu is a non-hazing fraternity that boasts
45 active members, 15 little sisters, known as the
White Roses, and an ongoing pledge class.
Sigma Nu is active on all levels at UNLV from
government to intramural sports, in which Sigma
Nu is the defending All-University champion.

In the chaos and confusion of today's
economic climate, it is certainly understandable
if many students value their opportunity
to obtain a university degree because
it will enhance their future earning
power. Higher education does indeed affect
favorably the earnings of graduates,
but it also contributes to their general
ability to cope with the everyday problems
of life. Besides providing them with
such basic skills as the ability to speak
and write and learn, a college education
gives students greater tolerance, adaptability,
In our vigorous, fast-paced society, it
may be necessary, or at least beneficial,
for all of us at UNLV to reflect ocasionally
upon what characteristics constitute university-
The first mark of such men and women
is an understanding of self. These individuals
are aware of their purposes and fully
realize the consequences of their own acts.
A second mark is the ability to work
and live constructively with others. Educated
persons extend to others the same
privileges they expect for themselves and
approve the freedoms for others they reserve
for themselves. They realize that
they must overcome their own prejudice
and intolerance before they can expect the
desired respect of others.
A third mark of such people is the ability
to use the power of reason. They have
the power to detect the significant and the
relevant. The ability to interpret events
and conditions is becoming increasingly
important in our complex world.
Educated persons develop and inward
poise and are neither swayed by pressures
nor nudged off balance by flattery. They
act out of verified facts and not in response
to rumor or malice.
Becoming a fully educated person is
your challenge; making the most of your
opportunities is your mandate. It is our
hope that the University of Nevada at Las
Vegas will enable you to choose and prepare
for a career which is consistent with
your talents, interests and aspirations.

Images Of 1980
Which Images of the '80's will be remembered? The tears on Jimmy
Carter's face as he thanked his supporters in Georgia, knowing the
election was lost? The blur of gold that was Eric Heiden as he skimmed
the ice on Lake Placid to win four gold medals? Dallas, the southern
soap opera and its "Who shot J.R.?" hype? Genuine Risk reaching the
wire at the Kertucky Derby? The braided rings around Saturn or the
cornrow braids of Bo Derek? Bjorn Borg winning his fifth Winbledon
Title in what may have been the best tennis match ever played? Ali
throwing in the towel after ten rounds with Larry Holmes or Sugar Ray
Leonard defeating Roberto Duran in a haunting rematch? Rosie Ruiz,
winner of the Boston Marathon (along with Bill Rodgers) being stripped
of her laurels when suspicions rose that she ran part of the race on the
subway? Astrologer and Pulitzer Prize winning author, Dr. Carl Sagen
providing a guided tour of the Universe through his eyes and telescope
in his best-selling book and PBS series Cosmos? The Philadelphia
Phillies overcoming injuries and dissension to win the World Series in
six games? Or, perhaps 1980 will be remembered for none of these.
Instead, the year may be remembered for an event, minor now, but
which may later be seen as the beginning of a trend.

UNLV enrollment was up this
year. According to Registrar Jeff
Halverson, the full time equivalent
(FTE) count is 6,443.7 students.
This is a 7.45 percent increase
from last fall's registration. This
increase affects the university and
students in many ways.
Although the actual head count
at UNLV is close to 10,000, it is the
FTE figure of 6,443.7 that the State
looks at when making allocations
for funding. Because of this factor,
funding may not be adquate. The
part-time students soak up many
of :e services given to students.
Serv ces include parking facilities,
he th care, classroom space, counsel;
g, and financial aid. As a resu
the relationship between the
F"I and head count widens and
the niversity is not really being
sr. orted by the state in a com-
•surate way to deal with the to-
1 umber of actual bodies.
vator Floyd Lamb, chairman
of he Senate Finance Committee,
is more than pleased with in-
Ssed enrollment and growth of

a parking space is more difficult
now than ever before," said
Woodard. Mclver said the library
is more crowded and noisy, and
they all agree that the Student
Union lines for food are getting
longer and more bothersom. An
important consideration Cheese
brought up is that it is more difficult
ot obtain classes in the lower
division because of high enrollment.
All agree, however, enrollment
at UNLV is up and good.
(CPS) — There will be people on
campus this fall-ordinary-looking
souls—who fear they're being hunted
by assassins, challenged by dragons,
and beguiled by magicians. Daily living
for them will be an exercise in
dodging the enemy and pursuing illusions
But the ostensible outbreak of paranoid
schizophrenia is really just part
of a fantasy game fad that has risen to
peak popularity in the last half decade.
The best-known variety revolves
around Dungeons & Dragons and its
derivations. The other goes by names
like "Assasin" and "Killing As An
They're being played elsewhere.
Dungeons and Dragons, which borrows
heavily from the works of J.R.R.
Tolkein, is actually formally organized
on "at least 200 campuses" by
various kinds of "Tolkein fellowships,"
boasts Marta Crosby of the
"It's fun," explains Will Niebling, a
vice president with Tactical Studies
Rules, a game production company in
Geneva, Wisconsin. "And profitable."
Niebling says sales of the D&D
equipment his firm produces and
markets have doubled annually each
year since 1974, and have quadrupled
in the last 12 months.
D&D, of course, involves an array
of unearthy characters, derived from
Tolkein books about the Middle
Earth. Each player assumes the identity
of one of the characters, and takes
direction from the Dungeon Master, a
combination of a referee and spontaneous
playwright. He creates fanciful,
demanding situations to which the
characters must respond.
He may say, "You are crossing a
bridge over the Valley of the Serpents,
when it suddenly collapses, hurling
you into a seas of reptillian monsters."
The reason for the campus interest
in role-playing fantasies is, according
to University of Minnesota sociologist
Gary Alan Fine, tied to a desire
"to move away from passive intellectual
activities, notably television."
Fine spent 18 months researching
D&D and four other fantasy games,
and found the appeal in the "science
fiction sub-culture" was the opportunity
to live out fantasies they would
ordinarily experience passively.
The people who participate in the
games, ne discovered, "tend not to be
the sorority or fraternity types. These
are intense people."
Eighty-five to ninety-five percent of
them are male because, Fine speculates,
the games involve "typical male
fantasies like picking up a princess
and carrying her off."
Of the simulated violence in D&D,
he says, "Maybe somewhere in the
human or male spirit there's a need
for war, a need to put one's life on the
But the sociologist thinks it futile to
guess why those games should become
popular at this time in our history.
He notes, "There have been studies
about' 'why the hoola hoop?,' 'why
the Beatles?,' 'why All in the Family?'
They didn't come up with anything.
Maybe the answer is because it was
thought up now.

UNLV—Almost Thirty Years
For almost thirty years since the
first college-level classes in Southern
Nevada started, the university
has been steadily mushrooming
from a student body of 12 to a
current enrollment of about
The first college students sat in a
spare room at Las Vegas High
School back in 1951 listening to
James Dickenson's lectures. He
was the only full-time UNR faculty
member teaching extension
courses in Las Vegas. The UNLV
library now stands in honor of
Dickenson's early efforts to bring
higher education to Las Vegas.
In 1957, the legislature recognized
the need for a firmly established
southern campus, and thus
founded the UNR southern regional
division. That summer, the
university opened its first administration
building, Maude Frazier
Hall. The Board of Regents named
William Carlson dean and first administrative
officer. The teacher

The year 1964 brought the university
through another milestone
when 29 students received their
Bachelor's degrees at the University's
first commencement ceremonies.
The following year, the legislature
renamed the school Nevada

hired the school's first president,
Donald Moyer. The campus

serves as the central gathering
place for the entire university
community, is named in Moyer's
Nevada Southern grew rapidly
and in 1968 the state legislature
granted the school independence,
giving it equal status to that of
UNR. With its new independence,
the school received a name: University
of Nevada, Las Vegas.
UNLV's growth in the 70's was
phenomenal both in size of student
body and physical growth.
According to vice-president for
business affairs, Herman Westfall,
that was the decade when construction
of UNLV's facilities was
at its peak. With the building of
the Flora Dungan Humanities
building, Juanita Greer White
Hall, Judy Bayley Theater, William
Carlson Education Center,
the university became visible to
Construction continues in the
80's with the completion of the addition
to the Dickenson Library
and with future projects including
a Business and Hotel Administration
building, a fine arts facility,
and an activities and Continuing
With changing trends of college
students throughout the country,
UNLV's picture of a typical student
has changed over the past few
years. More students are now
working while attending school.
The average age of a UNLV student
is 26 and the average time it
takes to acquire a Bachelor's degree
is about seven years, according
to vice-president for administration
Brock Dixon. UNLV now
enrolls about 10,000 full and pa- -
time students from almost every
state in the union and from about
40 foreign countries.
UNLV continues to mushroom
since it was but "a dot in the dt

ticipates the campus populatioi
will double by 1990 if growth rat
continues as it has been doin;
these past two years. His concern
however, is that the university

careful planning UNLV will continue
to move ahead and is opti

Conservative Republicans Win Offices In
Republican Presidential challenger
Ronald Reagan has defeated
incumbant President Jimmy
Carter in this year's presidental
race and led a conservative landside
across the nation.
With 97 percent of the nation's
precincts reporting, Reagan has
won 45 states and 483 electoral
votes. The race was over much
so: er; however, as only 270 electoral
votes were necessary to insure
the victory. Reagan reached
total at approximately 9 pm
T day night.
e reace was actually closer
ng the popular vote as Reagan
•ered 51 percent to Carter's 41
cent. Independent candidate
<n Anderson received 7 percent.
Vhile Reagan captured control
the White House, The Republii
followed that trend by gaining
itrol of the Senate for the first
time in 25 years. By a very thin
margin, the Democrats have regained
control of the U.S. House of
Representatives but their majority
has been substantially reduced. In
all, eight incumbant Democrats
were defeated including South Dakota's
George McGovern, Idaho's
Frank Church, Washington's
Warren Magnuson, and Birch
Bayh of Indiana, all noted liberals.
House Speaker Tip O'Neill is calling
the election results "a disaster
for the Democrats."
Reagan is the oldest man ever
elected president, three months
shy of 70, and by far the most conservative
since Herbert Hoover.
Victory had finally come for
Ronald Reagan twelve years after
he first sought the White House.
He celebrated his moment in his
own way; with his family.
Ad No Joke
A joke advertisement, seeking
volunteers to assassinate President-
elect Ronald Reagan, man
land some U. of Massachusetts-
Amherst students in trouble.
The advertisement was placed in
the student newspaper, the Daily
Collegian, before the election. It
noted that a hit squad was being
formed, with Reagan as its target,
and sought volunteers. The ad was
originally signed "J. Carter," but
the newspaper delected the signature
in keeping with its policy of
not running last names in classified
ads. "The people in our business
office did that," says Daily
Collegian News Editor Richard
Nagle. "They are the only ones
who go over the ads."
Without the signature, the ad's
humorous intention was less obvious,
Nagle admits. It was taken
seriously enough that the Secret
Service and as Assistant U.S. Attorney
in Springfield, Mass. investigated
the ad and its origins. That
investigation included a subpoena
of the Daily Collegian advertising

The subpoena was issued to
Robert Stein, editor-in-chief of the
newspaper. Stein was unavailable
for comment, but Nagle says he

Lennon . . .
John Lennon is dead. Murdered.
The news hit the world
like a ton of bricks. Shock, disbelief,
and genuine sorrow are
prevalent feelings in everybody,
especially those who experienced
Beatlemania when it
swept the entire civilized world
in the 1960's.
Anyone who knows about
the Beatles knows that John
Lennon was the creator and
leader of the group that was to
become anti-heroes at the same
time that they were adored by
millions. The Beatles set the
trend of the 60's in fashion,
style, and general attitude of the
hippie generation. They were
anti-war before it was fashionable.
They had long hair when
long hair was gauche. They
turned the world onto their
'trip' in a psychadelic dream
called Yellow Submarine. They
were on an international pedestal—
into everything from British
Royalty to studying with
Gurus to LSD.
The Beatles were to music
what Shakespeare was to literature.
All songs were written by
Lennon and McCartney and
spanned all types of subjects.
The group released 25 albums
with an unbroken record of 20
"number one" singles. Two of
their movies, A Hard Day's
Night and Sargent Pepper's
Lonely Hearts Club Band, won
a total of five Grammy awards
in several categories. Between
27 of their songs there have
been 366 remakes. Copies have
been done by everyone from
Alice Cooper to Chet Atkins,
David Bowie to Ray Charles,
Diana Ross and Joan Baez. To
put it simply, the Beatles did
the soundtrack for a long movie
called the 1960's.
There was much more to
John Lennon than his Beatle
days, although he was a major
influence in the group. After
the Beatles' breakup in 1970
Lennon tried to make a solo career
with Yoko Ono, but the
shadow of the Beatles hung
over him like a dark cloud. People
still wanted the Beatles.
Lennon went through a very
disturbing time in his life. He
faced deportation charges in
1973 but he gave a charity benefit
concert and the charges were
forgotten. But John Lennon
went into seclusion in 1975 because
of the pressure. He invested
in real estate, became a
father, and took care of the
household and himself while
Yoko Ono managed their business
affairs. The couple had
been working on the new album
Double Fantasy for
months before Lennon's 40th
birthday on October 9, 1980. It
was released in November and
quickly became one of the top
five selling albums. This leads
us to the murder.
Mark David Chapman had
been in New York a week as of
December 8th, the day of the
murder. He had asked Lennon
to autograph the new album
and was angry when Lennon
hastily signed it for him. Approximately
seven hours later
he caught John and Yoko on
their way into their Manhattan
home, yelled "Mr. Lennon"and
proceeded to empty his .38 into
John Lennon's back, arm, and
Within hours the news
spread over the world like wild
fire. People gathered at the
scene—some cried, some cried,
some sang, but most just stared
into the air. Millions of the people
who had lived the era of the
1960's cried openly and unashamedly.
They knew the loss and
felt it, perhaps, more deeply
than the younger fans. Everyone
from Ronald Reagan to
Mick J agger to Frank Sinatra
has given a statement. Sources
contacted Yoko Ono's family in
Japan and fan club leaders in
Liverpool. Both had something
to say about the state of affairs
Although John Lennon lived
in the U.S. for tax purposes, he
had said he liked New York because
he felt a sense of security.
He was finally able to walk the
streets without fear of a mob
scene, a fear that took him two
years to overcome. His new album
shows that he finally felt
free and at peace, optimistic towards
his future. While statement
after statement is being
issued, Lennon said it best in
his last interview Monday
afternoon with RKO, a network
out of England: . . We were
the hit ones of the Sixties. The
world's changed. I am going
into an unknown future, but
I'm still all here, and still while
there's life there's hope.
It is the end of an era. . .

The Towering Inferno
Guests, asleep in the MGM Grand Hotel were awakened
by the shouts of "Fire! Fire!". Looking out the window, the
sky was thick with yellowbrown smoke. On the fire stairs,
people were slumped along the wall, gasping for breath. The
roof seemed the only cbance of escape - but the stairwell,
jammed with frantic guests and rapidly filling with fumes,
was becoming a high-rise gas chamber. Worse still, the
escape door was locked and the windows - reinforced with
steel mesh - were unbreakable. As the mood veered toward
panic, one beefy, desperate man charged the door - and it
miraculously boomed open.
On the roof helicopters swooped through the smoke to
land and lift off a handful of guests at a time. After being
evacuated after fourty minutes, one guest said bitterly.
"There were no fire alarms, no smoke alarms, no sprinklers,
At least 83 people died and more than 400 were injured -
the second worst hotel fire in U.S. History.
The first flames broke out in the hotel's kitchen shortly
after 7 a.m., then quickly spread to the nearby casino hall - a
two story rococo fantasy fantasy equipped with three roulette
wheels, ten craps tables, 45 blackjack tables, 1,000 slot
machines and no sprinkler system. Investigators said the
fire raced through the casino's "eye in the sky," a concealed
catwalk fitted with one-way mirrors through which security
men monitored the gaming.
The flames quickly incinerated the casino's highly flammable
Hollywood decor. Somehow, the alarm system failed;
investigators said its controls, located in the basement, had
quickly melted in the raging blaze. Dense, acrid smoke
poured up the elevator shafts and stairs, and on the floors
above, sleeping guests awoke to confusion and terror.
By 7:30, smoke was trickling through the upper floors and
Rich Stamer, alone in suite 1533 A directly above the burning
casino, could smell it. Above Stamer's balcony, a woman
was trying to shinny down a rope; she lost her grip and fell.
Stamer was deluged with shards of glass as the occupants of
higher floors smashed out their windows. On the ninth
floor, Tom Bowden prepared to clamber down a fire ladder.
"When I got onto the ladder, I discovered blood all over me.
At first I thought I had been cut - but it was blood falling
down from the floors above."
Dozens of fire trucks ringed the burning hotel and hundreds
of dazed guests wandered around the grounds in their
night clothes. Para medics ministered to the injured and a
makeshift morgue opened across the street. In all, officials
estimated, nearly 8,000 guests and employees had been in
the M-G-M Grand when the fire broke out; firemen found
the last terrified survivor late that evening. "People pan
icked," was a hotel guard's explanation for the toll. But the
charred ruin posed questions of its own: why the alarm
system failed, and why, most of all, Las Vegas officials had
never required sprinklers in the casino.

One attribute of the punk/new

people's wardrobes. Anything goes.
Any mixture of bright, flashy colors

Campus Short Of Bike Racks
Have you ever wondered why you see bicycles on campus chained o
trees and posts instead of bike racks? A little multiplication produces t! e
There are 26 bike racks on campus, each capable of holding 18 bike
Twenty-six times eighteen equals 469 potential rack facilities for bike
This figure contrasts with the 3,000 UNLV bike riders estimated by Claud
Warren, the intern with Clark County Transportation Committee.
Help is on the way, according to CSUN Transportation Committe
member, Joe Petrizzo. Plans are underway for the purchase of 16 ne\
racks. Delaying their installation is a location problem, as each rac;
requires a space of at least 14 square feet.
The committee is concerned with the quality of bike racks on campus
They have reviewed several types of bike storage facilities.
One proposal is installing individual lockers enclosing the bikes to
protect them from theft, vandalism, and weather. The lockers would cos
approximately $100 each. As a result of this cost, a charge for use of the
facility would be required. A second type of rack reviewed would lock up
both the tire and frames of the bike, providing more protection than the
racks currently used on campus.
The committee has considered protection of bike riders as well as of
bikes themselves. It has defined as a priority long range planning of bike
paths. If paths were planned prior to construction of new buildings on
cmapus Petrizzo says, later problems of bike traffic could be limited.
Buildings Planned I Public Loses In Red Rock Decision
The new library addition under
construction is only the beginning of
a series of new buildings being built
on the UNLV campus.
The James Dickinson Library addition
will expand the original library
with more study space, room for the
expanding book selection and a new
area especially designed to store very
old books the library receives. The library
addition is now three months
behind schedule and is expected to be
ready for use in February.
The next building planned is the
Alta Ham Studio for the Fine Arts.
The studio will be located near Grant
Hall and will contain a little theatre,
music studios and practice rooms, a
choral room, and art gallerys. There
also will be additional classroom
space. The studio is named after the
wife of Artemus Ham, the man for
whom UNLV's concert hall was
Next to be built will be the new
Hoti and Business Building. This
building will be constructed east of
the soccer field. It contains modern
lecture halls, offices for both business
and hotel college administrators, two
suites for university administrators.
Dixon described a new and potentially
very useful facility to be located
in he building, experimental laboratory
kitchens. "This will enable the
students to learn their cooking skills
on campus instead of having to go
elsewhere as is being done now," The
budding is expected to be completed
by January 1983.
Also planned is the Thomas-Mack
Basketball Pavillion. It will be an enclosed
arena for basketball and will
seat 18,000 people. "We hope it will be
ready for the 1982 basketball season,"
Physcial Plant Director Charles
Because of constantly fluctuating
budgets, Moody could only generalize
on the final cost of the new buildings.
The library addition is costing
$6,972,000. The Alta Ham Studio will
cost six million, and the Hotel and
Business Building, $11,786,000. The
most expensive endeavor will be the
Basketball Pavillion at approximately
1 1/3? MILLION.
Most of the buildings will be financed
through bond issues, slot machine
rebates, and appropriation taxes.
The Alta Ham Studio is also receiving
donations from Ham.
The public appears to have lost

Look at the recent past may help
put the latest loss in perspective.
Las Vegans have been extremely
fortunate to have the canyons,
cliffs, and serenity of Red Rock so
close by our front door. Few cities
have such a glorious natural area
adjacent to the concrete canyons
and asphalt Vegas, and most of the
land belongs to the public for public
Unfortunately, the land is administered
by the Bureau of Land
Management, a Federal agency.
About 10 years ago, the BLM designed
a development plan for Red
Rock which included volleyball
courts and baseball diamonds so
the public could better enjoy nature,
an asphalt highway to be
blasted up the flank of a mountain
so people could drive along the escarpment,
and campgrounds at almost
every srping and waterhole.
There would be little nature left to
enjoy, and fortunately for us, Las
Vegans took action and prevented
this deveopment. The remnent of
this plan is the scenic loop road,
which citizens were told would
have no road cuts and restricted
shoulders to prevent scaring the
land. This road built to BLM
specifications is the greatest scenic
blight in Red Rock. The scars
from its cuts and the shoulders can
be seen from anywhere in the Valley.
Next came Fletcher Jones. He
purchased the Spring Mountain
Ranch in the heart of the Red
Rocks and requested the County
Planning Commission to rezone
the area into high density housing
and condominimums. This attack
from the private sector was beaten
when Nevadans floated a State
Parks bond issue and bought the
land for the public.
The purchase placed Nevada
State Parks and BLM into joint administration
of Red Rocks, a management
which has been notoriously
unsuccessful. The two agencies

four out of five Stanford U. students
turn to for advice on career
planning, a new survey show. Nine
out of 10 Stanford juniors also seek

consider parental advice on their
careers more important as juniors
than they did as sophomores, but
tend to seek less advice on course

A STUDENT STRIKE at seven
New Jersey campuses achieved its
announced goal of stopping a bill to
re- apropriate money raised through
a $2 per credit tuition increase at
state schools. The money was
originally raised to pay for increased
fuel costs, library expansions and
building maintenance at state
schools. A bill introduced in the
state legislature would have
appropriated the funds to a student
financial aid program that would
benefit all segments of higher
education, including students
attending private, out-of-state and

Iran Frees 52 Hostages
The 52 American hostages flew to
freedom January 20 from Tehran's
Mehrabad Airport, ending 444 days of
harrowing captivity in Iran.
Their Departure coincided with the
inauguration of Ronald Reagan to
succeed Jimmy Carter, whose presidency
was shadowed by the UV2-
month hostage crisis.
Reagan announced in Washington
that the plane carrying the hostages
had left Iranian airspace and "are now
free of Iran."
The Iranian news agency said the
hostages were aboard one of three
planes that took off from Tehran. One
Boeing 727 apparently carried the hostages,
another the Algerian delegation
acting as hostage go-betweens and a
third, executive-style jet, the Algerian
doctors who examined the hostages.
Pars said the hostages boarded the
plane as Iranians shouted "down with
America, down with Reagan."
Release of the Americans touched
off celebrations and the sound of sirens
and bells across the United
Carter was deprived of a chance to
greet the hostages before he left office,
but he went to West Germany to greet
the 52 Americans following the Inauguration,
former Secretary of State Edmund
S. Muskie said.
Departure day for the hostages arrived
after difficult negotiations finally
wrapped up agreement to exchange
the hostages for Iranian assets frozen
by the United States.
There was confusion over exactly
what time the aircraft bearing the hostages
took off. A policeman told reporters
at the airport it had departed
at about 11:20 a.m. EST.
Then Tehran Radio, quoting Pars,
the official Iranian news agency, said
it took off at about noon, the time
Reagan was being inaugurated. A Pars
teletype monitored in Tehran said at
12:25 p.m. the plane had taken off. A
later Pars story said it left at 12:33
Reagan said shortly after the inaugural
ceremony he understood the
plane had left at 12:33, perhaps reflecting
the second Pars announcement.
The 3,000-mile flight to Algiers
took approx. 6V2 hours. The hostages
then went to a U.S. Air Force hospital
in Wiesbaden, West Germany.
The hostages were seized Nov. 4,
1979 by young Moslem militants who
stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran.
They said the hostages would be released
if the United States handed
over the Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi,
then undergoing medical treatment
in the United States. The shah
found refuge in Eygpt and died in Cairo
on July 27, 1980.
Release of the hostages ended I4Y2
months of negotiations, American
economic and diplomatic pressure
and the failed attempt last April to
send American commando teams to
Tehran to free the hostages by military
The 52 Americans were the remaining
hostages from among 98 seized by
the Moslem revolutionaries nine
months after the Islamic revolution in
The hostages included diplomats,
Marine guards, communications specialists,
teachers and businessmen.
They ranged in age from 20 to 64.
About 20 were servicemen.
The final push toward a settlement
came in weeks of intense negotiations
with Algerian diplomats acting as intermediaries.
On Dec. 19, the Iranians demanded
that the United States deposit $24 billion
in cash and gold in Algeria as a
"guarantee" that Iran's financial demands
would be met, including its demand
for the late Shah Mohammand
Reze Pahlavi's wealth.
The United States rejected this, and
on Jan. 2 offered a counter-proposal;
only the approximately $10 billion in
Iranian government assets frozen by
the United States would be returned,
in installments linked to arrangements
for resolving claims and
counter-claims by the two sides.
On Jan. 7, Iranian negotiator Behzad
Nabavi said Tehran "generally"
accepted the latest proposal, and the
next day Deputy Secretary of State
Warren Christopher flew to Algiers to
establish closer contact through the
After the failed commando operation
last April, the Iranian militants
announced they had scattered the hostages
to more than a dozen Iranian
cities to forestall another rescue attempt.
Late last year, unconfirmed reports
mounted that the Americans had been
reassembled in Tehran, and later that
most had been put in a former resort
on the Caspian Sea and others at Revolutionary
Guard headquarters in
Throughout most of the crisis, three
of the hostages — led by Cahrges
d'Affaires Bruce Laingen — remained
in custody at the Iranian Foreign Ministry.
But in early January the Iranians
reported the three had been
moved from the ministry to another,

Raiders Win Big In Super Bowl

that became a problem for the eagles.
Oakland got on the board first when Plunkett hit

passed to running back Kenny King and the second

Eagles in the first half as both teams went to the
loclcer rooms with the Raiders leading 14-3.

It was a wonderful day in the history of the United
States. The hostages finally came home and there was,
of course, the Super Bowl. And indeed, the Super Bowl

Jim Plunkett, given up on by many teams
throughout the National Football League, showed the
world that he is not done and boy did he show off.
The former Heisman trophy winner from Stanford
completed 13 of 21 passes for 261 yards and no
interceptions. That final stat was the big key. Ron
Jaworski, the Eagles Quarterback, was intercepted
three times and all three by former USC Trojan Rod
Martin. Jaworski finished the game hitting 18 of 38
passes for 291 yards. The 38 attempts is a new Super
The big difference in the game was the ability of
the Oakland offensive line to keep the Philadelphia
defenders out of the pocket and give Plunkett enough
time to throw. Sometimes he had over four seconds to
release the pass.
Meanwhile, Philadelphia's offensive line had all it
could handle with the big Oakland defensive line. Led

The preppie fad, long in fashion on
college campuses, this year caught the
imagination of the whole country.
With the publication of preppie posters
and even The Preppie Handbook,
the fashion look marked by alligator
golf shirts, pink and green clothes and
topsider shoes was no longer simply a
But as often happens, having set the
trend, college students are now leaving
it behind. And a group of Princeton
University students are capitalizing
on this movement, even as other
manufacturers are still pushing preppie
wear. This month, several national
magazines will be featuring the symbol
to the anti-preppie trend: a button,
modeled after no-smoking signs, that
features a red slash dtawn through the
familiar Lacoste Alligator. Already,
stores across the East Coast are ordering
these buttons, which were created
by Princeton's students Michael Katz
and Margaret Steinbugler.
Katz was selling specialized club
buttons and football booster buttons
when he and Steinbugler, an artist,
came up with the anti-preppie design,
initially "as just a private joke," he
says. The buttons were an immediate
campus hit, and Katz decided to take
them to retail outlets. He found response
there equally enthusiastic. His
final coup was sending sample buttons,
with cover letters, to national
magazines like Playboy, Seventeen
and People. "We've had almost 100
1/2 response from the magazines," he
Katz, who also heads the campus
typewriter agency says selling buttons
is "an incredibly easy way to
make money". He admits, however,
that the rapid growth of the anti-preppie
button's popularity has required
considerable outlay of capital. "The
money hasn't come in yet," he says.
What with Lawyers for incorporation
(to prevent a direct lawsuit by
Lacoste), stationery and ordering the
actual buttons, we haven't shown a
profit yet. But we will ... I think."
Two other Princeton students are
marketing a more violent anti-preppie
statement. Freshmen Reed M. Benet
and Howard J. Stark have sold 200 Tshirts
in the Princeton area that say
Nuke the Preppies" and depict a
dead alligator under a mushroom
cloud. Like the buttons, the T-shirts,
which cost $5.00 each, are equally
popular among campus preppies and
Sperry Topsiders, LaCoste alligators, button-down shirts, Shetland sweaters
and designers jeans have all been added to the vocabularies and wardrobes
of many UNLV students this year along with the designation
Preppies wear all the stuff above and are able to act as if it is second nature
to have alligators snapping on their chest. Lisa Birnbach, the editor of the
"The Official Preppy Handbook" says "Preppies aren't all that different
from other people. Mostly it's their attitude of excess carelessness and selfconfidence."
And, of course, their clothes.
Preppies are actually those people groomed for getting into a college
preparatory or "prep" school which will then lead them into and Ivy League
college. Certain mannerisms and clothing styles associated with these Easterners
and Southerners are satircilly outlined in Birnbach's handbook, enabling
Westerners and other non-preppies to at least look the part.
UNLV may not be Ivy League, but looking at some students, its hard to
tell otherwise. Either they are really transplanted preppies or just followers
of Birnbach's fashion Anti Preppie?
