dent with an 8:00 A.M. and an 1:00 P.M.
exam the next day, it's not hard to explain why.
Most administrators, deans, and professors say
that exams are necessary, but students tend to
laugh at this statement. In eight days of exams
at Clemson, one is coerced into conjuring up
and recalling all knowledge learned in the past
* semester. For most students, preparations for

these mental tug-of-wars involve long hours of study and longer hours
of worry more than anything else. Aching eyes and stiff neck mus-
cles from being cramped over a desk are all part of the procedure.
What does it usually net the student? A lower grade or if one
is lucky, the same grade. What does it net the professor? Hours of
correcting and a variety of student complaints. How much knowl-
edge is gained from it all? Usually very little. Everyone knows cram-
ming is not the best way to retain information. So what do exams
accomplish besides being a poor measurement of learning? That
question always seems to be left unanswered.

Lack of Sleep

11 ... 12 ... 1 ... 2 the hours grow longer as the clock
moves on and on. Clemson students are so notorious for
their lack of sleep that University doctors have publicly
asked them to take better care of themselves. What drives
students to stay up so late and sleep so little? It does not
seem to make much difference whether it is exams to be
studied for, projects to be completed, a good poker or
spades game, or just plain old bull sessions; the lights
burn on. If one is a student accused of baggy eyes and
8:00 a. m. cuts, the logical and best excuse to increase
the old image is "Life is not very long and youth is even
shorter, so one should take from it all that he or she can."
Sounds good on paper, but it may not always be the truth.
Whatever the reason, as long as there are students, there
will be alarm clocks with buzzers that grow louder and
louder to wake up bodies that fell asleep only a few hours

Walking, Walking, Walking, . . .

The bell rang a couple of minutes ago. Prof, please dismiss
class soon. I have a long walk to my next class— it takes fifteen
minutes from here.

Walking takes many forms here at Clemson. There is the walk
between classes, the walk to the post office, the long walk to get
your car, the walk to town, the walk to Death Valley in the fall,
or the walk to Littlejohn in the spring, the pleasure walk when
maybe you just want to think, the walk down Hardin Hall Hill in
the rain, the walk on those cold crisp mornings, the walk to the
P & A for cold ice cream on a hot summer day, the walk between
dorms to see your friends, the walk to see your final grades in a
course, . . .


The Clemson Intramural Department has gone through tremen-
dous changes since Coach Banks McFadden took over the reins in
1969. At that time there were only four major sports for students to
participate in, with interest in these areas minimal.

In 1969 the major sports were softball, football, basketball and
volleyball. These sports provided the biggest areas of interest with
around 50 teams being involved in each. Volleyball, however, drew
a much meager 28 team involvement.

In 1969 Coach McFadden and assistant Fred Cone set out on a
course to involve more students in the present programs and organize
other programs of interest.

To say the least, their goals ha\e been achieved. Softball partic-
ipation has increased to 120 teams. Football 90 teams, Basketball 180
teams, and Volleyball 102 teams.

This was a minor accomplishment. Coach McFadden and As-
sistant Cone instigated seven other major sports programs as well as
several minor athletic programs. They also provided the students
with equipment and facilities for unorganized activities. These pro-
grams ha\'e been participated in greatly by students. In the first se-
mester of 1973 some 9,978 students used the facilities in the big

The intramural department has come a long way since the
opening of Fike Field House to the students. With more intra-
mural facilities and programs to follow, Clemson is sure to have one
of the finest recreation centers in the nation.

Pershing Rifles

Company C, 4th Regiment, Na-
tional Society of Pershing Rifles is
Clemson's drill fraternity. The mem-
bers are dedicated to the purposes
and ideals which have propelled the
Company to its existing record. The
activities of the Company encompass
the many facets which contribute to-
wards the "whole man." Company C-4
is undoubtedly the most recognized
military organization on campus,
competing throughout the nation
representing both Clemson University
and Company CA. Service, Fraternity,
and Drill. A Pershing Rifleman.



The Army ROTC program has been
an important part of Clemson Univer-
sity for the past 84 years.

This year, over 50% of the
212 Cadets enrolled in the program
participated in extra curricular
activities. Also, for the first time,
women were eligible to enroll in Army
ROTC. At the first of the year,
five women were enrolled in the

In 1973, Clemson graduated 89
cadets, more than any other non-
military school of the 1 6 most east-
ern states.

The Army ROTC program consists
of classroom instruction and weekly
drills. The program attempts to
develop Cadets into the Army leaders
of tomorrow.


Arnold Air Society

Arnold Air Society is a profes-
sional, honorary service organization
made up of advance AFROTC cadets.
The objectives of AAS are (a) to aid in
the development of Air Force officers,
(b) to create a closer relationship
within the AFROTC, (c) to further the
purpose and traditions of the Air
Force, and (d) to advance space age

Activities during the past year
included blood drives, a Thanksgiving
project for the poor, ecology pro-
jects, and an Easter Egg Hunt for the
faculty's children.

RIC BARNETT, Commander

Air Force ROTC

The mission of Clemson AFROTC
Detachment 770 is to train future
officers for the U. S. Air Force.
Each cadet must have a good academi
standing. Included in the academic
program are lectures, student-given
briefings, field trips to Air Force
installations, and, of course, drill.
Two programs are offered, a four year
program to freshmen and a two year
program for rising juniors. AFROTC
is open to all students.

Air Force Flight
Instruction Program

The AFROTC Flight Instruction Program prepares future Air Force
pilots for advanced training when commissioned after graduation.

Participants must have thirty-five hours of training, using a
Cessna 150 aircraft. These thirty-five hours consist of dual instruc-
tion and fifteen hours of solo tlying when cadets gain confidence in
handling an aircraft.

During training cadets gain valuable experience in basic tlight,
navigation, and cross-country flying. Instrument flight and advanced
aeronautics instructions are included. The Air Force Department pays
for this program.

Participants must pass pilot portions of the Air Force Officer
Qualifications Test with a certain grade and the Air Force pilot
flight physical.


CAPER Company C-4, the Coed
Affiliates of the Pershing Rifles,
organized in 1968 at Clemson Univer-
sity, is a national social, service,
and drill sorority, promoting high
standards for its members and sister-
hood within the group and with our
brothers, the Pershing Rifles. CAPERS
have demonstrated their excellence
in regional and national drill meets.

Other activities in the early
calendar included helping with the
children of the Headstart Program,
having company parties, and marching
in parades. Membership is open to all
girls interested in promoting the
ideals of CAPERS.



The Clemson Counterguerrilla
Platoon is an elite tactical, all
volunteer unit of cadets enrolled
in the Army ROTC program. Members
of the Counterguerrilla Platoon have
:ompleted a rigorous two week
physical training period and surpassed
the requiremnts of the U. S. Army's
Physical Fitness test.

A Counterguerrilla receives the
finest military training available
at Clemson. He develops aggressive tac-
tical leadership through training in
reconnaissance, ambushes, raids,
land navigation, security, communica-
tions, camouflage, weapons, air mobil-
ity, and rappelling. Each semester
he moves into the Clemson University
Forest and proves his leadership
ability under simulated combat

Culminating the past year's
tactical training, the Counterguerrilla
Platoon traveled to an Army Post to
receive training in unconventional
warfare with the U.S. Army Special

Scabbard and Blade

Clemson's Company K-7 of the
National Society of Scabbard and Blade
is the most highly regarded college
military organization on campus,
drawing its membership from all phases
of the Army and Air Force ROTC pro-
grams. The cadet in Scabbard and Blade
is an officer and a gentleman possess-
ing the qualities of leadership,
patriotism, efficiency, loyalty,
obediance, courage, good fellowship,
and honor, exhibited in such active
members as former Secretary of State
Dean Rusk and Astronauts John Young

and Eugene Cernan. Honorary members
include Will Rogers, Charles Lindberg,
and former President Franklin D.

Major activities of Clemson's
Company K-7 included ushering for the
president's box at home football
games, and sponsoring the Military Ball


"Military," what does it bring
to mind? Does it remind one of national
defense or the local ROTC program.
What effect does the national military
have on the local level? Of course,
the basic rules are the same, but
what effect do changes in the national
system have on students at Clemson?

The end of the draft brought an
expected decrease in the Army and Air
Force ROTC programs. Many students
felt that if they had to be in the
military, they might as well be an
officer. Today, the services no longer
have that crutch to support them. They
must offer their own enticements in

the form of higher pay and other re-
wards. Critics have said that the
military would lose its variety under
this system and become too mercenary.
The Clemson campus lost no such vari-
ety. The same figures still marched on
Bowman Field except for one other
change— women.

The liberation movement left its
mark on many aspects of American life;
the military is no exception. Women
in uniform were seen taking an active
part in drill and class instead of
simply filling the role of co-ed
affiliates that Clemson has known in

the past. They may have looked strange
to some but their presence was undeni-
able in a national program to upgrade
the position of women in the military.

Although many of the national
military changes were not evident in
the Clemson program, the two mention-
ed above were by those students in the
Army and Air Force ROTC curriculum.
Military life is not for every one and
the ROTC program is not for every stu-
dent at Clemson. So many of these
changes may have gone unnoticed by
the majority. However, they were felt
by those involved.

According to the Chinese Calendar and Sport's Illus-
trated's less serious prediction, this was to be "the year of
the Tiger." For nine games Clemson basketball fans (or dung-
shovellers as Sports Illustrated affectionately calls us)
did not doubt it. Characterized by a consistent and well
balanced team effort, unknown to Clemson teams of the past,
the Tigers opened with a surprising 7-2 start.

Enroute to capturing the first annual IPTAY Invitational,
held in Littlejohn, Clemson made Auburn and St. Johns their
first victims. Taking to the road, their winning ways con-
tinued until the Steel Bowl where the competition was of
slightly better caliber. Back at home, Clemson suffered their
second loss in a closely fought game against nationally
ranked Louisville, but notched victories over Georgia Tech,
Furman and Delaware. At the end of these games Clemson
received much desired recognition, from the sportswriters
as well as from the fans.

But as they advanced through a tough schedule, the
team that had earlier defeated seven non-conference foes,
was suddenly a victim of a five game losing streak. With
each defeat the players slowly lost their composure. That
is, all but one, Wayne 'Tree' Rollins, a V'l" standout
freshman center, justified all the praise which was bestowed
on him. He did not bend under pressure. Whether it was his
performance which earned him M.V.P. during the IPTAY
Tournament or the 24 rebound performance against Delaware,
Tree was the decisive figure on the team.

The Tree, however, was not alone. Wayne Croft made his
presence known under the boards with his aggressiveness.
Jeff Reisenger and Van Gregg showed at times the shooting
abihty each was capable of. And Terrel Suit sparked many a
game surge with his aggressive play. The season ends as the
best since 1967, yet the fans could not help looking anxiously
towards next year. Their reason was a good one; Tree will
be back.

Youth and inexperience plagued the Tigers as they proved inconsistent
but capable of playing with anyone. The youngest but perhaps the best
was 7'1" Wayne "Tree" Rollins (30).

w ^ ■ /^r'^B




Along with the Tigers' lack of experience, they
were constantly plagued by the lack of officiat-
ing or, on the other hand, a fast whistle.


Perennially an area of power for Clemson
athletics, the Tiger nine continued their excellence
by notching the regular season championship only to
lose to N. C. State in the ACC tournament. Craig White,
the ACC's Most Valuable player, led the league in six
batting categories. The mound crew was headed by aces
Lindsey Graham and Steve Cline, the latter having the most
recorded victories in the league.
