2 . THE SOUTHERN ACCENT Thursday, September 6, 1979



The Southern Accent is a paper for the whole student body,
but it is impossible to satisfy everyong on campus, so we're
going to try our best to please as many readers as possible.

The only way we can improve The Southern Accent is if
you — the reader — responds. We want to get you involved in
The Southern Accent. We have a free classified ad section for
you to make your announcements and to send messages to
friends. Also, we want to get your opinion on campus issues in
the Street Beat column. And, of course, ther's the "Letters to
the Editor" page for you to respond to things happening in The
Southern Accent or on campus.

The first question some of you probably will ask is "Why have
advertisements.?" Without the support of our advertisers we'd
have to get an additional appropriation of $2,500 from the
Student Association. This would inevitably reduce the services
offered by your SA. We will not, however, fill the Accent full of
advertisements without adding extra pages.

With the support of you and our advertisers we are going to
try to make this the best Accent published in the past 34 years.

mind as the jet engines began what he thought would be a

warnings," he remembers. missionary in Nicaragua. He

On May 29, 1979. Robert planned to do construction and

mechanical work at the Tas-
bah Raya Mission and to
transport nurses to and from
local villages.

"When my plane landed I
could tell that there was some
tension and anxiety among the

passengers," says VanRaden.
"but they were all speaking
Spanish. Later I found out
that a few days before, a plane
had either been shot down or
riddled with machine gun fire
after it landed."

When VanRaden arrived he
knew nothing of the country's
revolutionary war to over-
throw the president of Nica-
ragua. The plane would make
only a quick stop in the
capitol, Managua, before de-
parting to Porto Cabesas,
about 60 miles from the Tas-
bah Raya Mission.

Upon landing in Managua,
VanRaden was informed that
he would not be able to
continue his flight to the
mission because of fighting in
Porto Cabesas. All flights
landing there or even going in
that direction were discon-
tinued. A few flights were
leaving Managua for the US
and other countries, but Van-

Raden decided to stay and see
what the future would bring.
Elder Robert Eubanks, con-
ference president of Nica-
ragua, invited him to his home
and there VanRaden decided
to wait and see whether the
fighting would slow down.
. During his two weeks there,
Robert worked for the con-
work. He was forced to stop at
the beginning of the second
weel because the Sandinistas
had threatened to bum down
any business that allowed
normal work to go on.

Even during all this, Robert
still wanted to go on to the
mission; he felt that if he
made it there he'd be safe
even though fighting was
going on 60 miles from Tasbah
Raya. Unfortunately, circum-
stances were getting worse
instead of berter. Robert and
Elder Eubanks discussed the
situation and with mixed feel-
ings decided that it would be
best for Robert to return to the
US until things sertled down in

The threat from the Sandi-
nistas wasn't the only draw-
back to staying. The continual
firing that was becoming


around Managua seemed
be another sign for Robert to
return to the States. Once he
even came close to being hit
when an unannounced array of
bullets came from nowhere
towards him and a guard he
was talking with. Managua
was becoming less and less

But there was also the
problem of getting out of the
country. The American Em-
bassy had called VanRaden
and made arrangements for
him to leave on a US military
cargo plane, but the Sandi-
nistas had demoHshed roads
and burned cars and tnicks,
making road blocks in many

Robert was escorted to the
airport — a secret one used
only for top officials — by a
caravan of about 10 cars and
trucks can7ing other passen-
gers also leaving Nicaragua.

"I remember looking out
the window and seeing dead
bodies laying along the side of
the road," says VanRaden. "I
was just thankful that 1 wasn't
one of them." He later
learned that many of his
friends and relatives had
known of his predicament and
had been praying for him. He
feels that was one reason for
his safe return to the States.

Now back as SMC, Van-
Raden still wants to return to
Nicaragua. "No other place
would be quite as good for me

could do what I love to do
