From The
Editor’s Desk
Lawrence’s laissez-faire method of handling student
organizations needs some rethinking.
Student groups and organizations, which tend to rise and
fall like the tide, are pretty much left on their own to sink or
swim. The university will provide money and some advice,
if asked, but little commitment or structure. No faculty
advisor. No leadership training programs. No lessons on
how to keep proper books.
Granted, the rationale behind the hands-off policy is a
good one. Dean of Students Charles I^auter said that the
college hopes to foster a sense of independence and
motivation in students by leaving them to their own ends.
The unrestrained approach is tailor-made for bright
students who know what they want to do and how to do it.
But when that visionary LUCC president steps down or that
talented Coffeehouse chair graduates, the group likely falls
into disorganization and apathy until the next dynamo
comes along. In the meantime, the campus suffers.
This policy would be sound were it not for the fact that
certain orgnnizations--particularly large ones like LUCC and
the Campus Events Committee-need a measure of
organization and professionalism if they are to operate with
any stability.
At Lawrence, we’re given a lot to work with and not
much else. The university intends to teach us self-sufficiency
by its own neglect, but the policy too often leaves students
helplessly overwhelmed. Expecting excellence from oneself
and others is a lesson rarely learned from a Lawrence
extracurricular activity. More oflen, toleration of mediocrity
and a vague sense of failure is the rule.
It can be fixed. What the college needs to do is not
completely take over the management of student groups, but
rather become less reactive and more proactive. The Dean of
Students office, with more staff and money, could work to
provide some sort of rudder for campus groups adrift on a
sea of indirection. A good starting point would be faculty
advisors who had a clear idea of what each group is
supposed to do and what its limitations are. Some might
argue that the individual experience is dampened by
structuring, but better that than the current state of collective
shoulder-shrugging.
It doesn’t make sense for the university to fund and
promote extracurricular only to abandon them. If Lawrence
wants a bright collection of student groups, it’s got to extend
a helping hand. Displays of commitment tend to be
reciprocated.

Barlow said the typical Avenue shopper was

Barlow said the m a ll was a good o pp o rtun ity

“W h a t’ll have to to happen is i t ’ll go through

John G. K ellogg is a c iv il and
com m ercial law yer, a loyal husband
of 26 years, and a p illa r of the Apple­

He is, how ever,

Thursday in our e ffort to separate the

Kellogg has been a law yer in A p­

H a yd n ’s Drumroll Sym phony, and

home to his office, and tw e n ty m in ­

years he has lived here.
He takes his hobby p h ilo s o p h i­
c a lly : “ la w ye rs are a lw a ys doing
som ething w ith th e ir m o u th s,” he
ch uckled .
Jo h n K e llo g g ’ s d e d ic a tio n to

in his words, plays “ a t” piano. (H is

Kellogg’s few moments in the m u si­
cal lim e lig h t have been few and fa r
between. Once, in M adison, he was
stopped by a woman who recognized
the Haydn piece he was w h is tlin g at
the time. In 1977, he gave a concert in
R ive rview Lounge, which was te le ­
vised on two TV channels and broad­
cast n a tio n a lly on radio fhis accoun­
ta n t heard it in M issouri). Lately, his
p o p u la rity has experienced a sudden
upsw ing; on one occasion, a woman
stopped him , la id a hand on his arm ,
and told him he sounded wondorful-her late husband also w histled classi­
cal music. John Kellogg’s response to
th is s lig h t increase in p o p u la rity has
been to lo ya lly stand by his pastim e:
“even when I ’m crabby or want to stay
o ff my feet, I feel obligated to put in a
p e rfo rm a n c e .”
Although he has no plans to s ta rt a
professional career, he plans to con­
tinue w h is tlin g as he always has, and
would welcome a critiq u e , a frie n d ly
hello, or a Bach co u n te rp o in t should

A script o f such depth and

Grode is no exception. N ev­
ertheless, Grode appears to
have m ade an a d m ira b le
and d ilig e n t e ffo rt - one
worth the 8:00 trip to the Con.
Grode seems, most appro­
p ria te ly , to place h is m a in
focus n o t on ch a ra cte r or
p lo t development, b u t on the
cre a tio n o f an a ll-e n co m ­

w o rth y o f note, and indeed,
b o rd e rin g on b r illia n t in
th e ir effectiveness in creat­
in g the mood.
U n fo r tu n a te ly , G rode
also chose to use a back­

s o u n d tr a c k
to
heighten the atmosphere. In
a c tu a lity , the e xtra noise
tends to m uddle the some­
tim e s co nfu sin g ra p id -fire
dialogue and serves more
as a d istra ctio n than effec­

Vikes drop last baseball
game to Green Knights
The V ik in g baseball team saw
th e ir season end on a sour note th is
past Tuesday, as they were de­
feated by St. N o rb e rt 7-5 in the
M id w e s t C onference m in i- p la y ­
o ff.
St. N o rb ert took the early lead by
scoring fo u r runs in the fir s t in ­
n in g o ff o f senior p itc h e r B a rt
Isaacson.
L U came rig h t back,
though, w ith three runs in the top of
the second on an RBI single by se­
n io r Jason Crook, an RBI groundout by ju n io r Ryan Stone, and a
sacrifice fly by ju n io r Jon M aki.
The Green K n ig h ts upped th e ir
advantage to 5-3 in the th ird and
were th re a te n in g to score more.
B u t senior Pete M urchie relieved
Isaacson and worked out of a bases
loaded, no outs situation.
The V ike s fin a lly evened the
score a t five in the fourth. Fresh­
man M ik e S pofford delivered a
p in c h -h it R B I single, and M a k i
follow ed w ith a double to score
Spofford.
In the bottom of the fo u rth , how­
ever, St. N o rb e rt scored an u n ­
earned ru n a g a in s t M u rc h ie to
take the lead for good. The Green
K nigh ts added a home run in the
fifth to provide the fin a l m argin.
Last S aturday, the V ikin g s swept
a non-conference dou b le he a de r
from W aukesha Tech by scores o f
10-9 and 9-4.
In the firs t game, L U fell behind
9-3 before ra lly in g in the fifth and
s ix th in n in g s fo r seven runs.
Spofford, M a ki, and ju n io r C raig
Cook each had two hits while Jason
Crook drove in three runs.
Ju n io r B rian Toomey pitched the
firs t five in n in g s for the win and
senior Joe K rueger, who h it his
firs t home run o f the season in the
fifth , recorded the fin a l out of the
save.
The V ikes came from behind in
game tw o as w e ll, as a six-ru n
ra lly in the sixth in n in g erased a
3-0 d e ficit. Sophomore Bob De­
Meuse went 3 for 4 and Crook was 2
fo r 2.
F re sh m a n Ed Lam m
smacked a tw o -ru n double in the
seventh to close out the scoring.
Krueger went the distance on the
mound fo r the w in, g ivin g up only
two earned runs.
LU finishes its season w ith a 1010-1 record o v e ra ll, 4-9 a g a in st

Warch said the trustees
w ill not act upon th a t rec­

In other business, the
trustees are expected to ap­

for 1991-92.

serving as a consultant.
One candidate has been

The position a t Eastman
had been open for two years
before S tu rm accepted the
position .
S tu rm w ill leave A pp le ­

new position in September.
“ I t was so h a rd . I ’ve

S tu rm .
“ I t was h ard to contem­

The type o f connections
S tu rm had made the deci­
sion even tougher than firs t
appeared.
“ R ig h t to the 11th hour, I
wasn’t sure about what to do.
M y connections are strong
here and I love W isconsin,”
he said.
“ I t wasn’t u n til I found a
chunk of land out. there th a t
looked lik e home before I

S tu rm , whose graduate
work was done at both N orth
Texas State U n iv e rs ity and
Eastman, has thought about
the job for a long time.
“The p osition the y of­
fered me is one I ’ve q uie tly
dreamed o f since I got into
the business. M y m e n to r

If you think drugs cost a lot
now, wait until after college.
They could cost you a career.
Last year alone. America’s
businesses lost more than $60
billion to drugs. So this year,
most of the Fortune 500 will be
administering drug tests.
Failing the test means you won t
be considered for employment.
And that s one hell of a price
