A lifestyle that is so easy to enter

and so difficult to leave.


We came filled with
expectations. Some of us had
visions of graduating sumnia
cum laude. Some planned to
make social events the most
important part of our college
life. Some of us came because
of the security attached to a
small private college. Many of
us just came.

We learned quickly. College
was nothing like high school. It
was next to impossible not to
study for a test and still make a
good grade. We had to be
responsible enough to get

ourselves up in the morning
and it became a matter of our
own conscience whether or not
we went to church. We learned
to discipline ourselves, and we

Three students died suddenly
in the last three years. Each
death drew us together in a
common bond as we mourned
the loss of Jim McVeigh, Alvin
Wells and Jim Ryskamp. The
entire campus dealt with the
reality of death. We realized
how precious life was, and we

A Growing Experience

We came from all walks of
life. Rich kids drove to school
in Cranadas, and Mom and Dad
dropped off the less fortunate.
We came from happy homes,
broken homes, Protestant,
Catholic, Jewish and Moslem
homes. Some came from Buie's
Creek, some from California,
and others from Iran. We
gained insight from the expo-
sure, and we grew.

Some of us came with the
main purpose of finding a mar-
riage partner. From orientation
on, we had that one ultimate

goal in mind. Some romances
lasted and others ended in
heartbreak, but we grew.

We watched the 1977 basket-
ball team place second in the
NAIA national tournament.
Through incredulous amaze-
ment, we experienced triumph,
and we grew.

Those of us close to gradua-
tion view the college years in
different ways. Some see it as an
ending experience. Others see
it as a beginning experience.
Perhaps it is best described as a
growing experience.

Hypnotist Gil Eagles remains
the most talked about guest
entertainer of the fall semester.

The Pine Burr staff proudly
dedicates the 1979 yearbook to
Dr. John Albert Freeman in
gratitude for his fourteen years
of service to Campbell College.

Originally from Keota,
Oklahoma, Dr. Freeman is
married to the former Sue
Cowan of Kansas City,
Missouri. They now reside in
Durham and have two children.
Johnny, 24 and Susie, 21, both
are students at Emory

Dr. Freeman attended
Ouachita College where he
studied for an A.B. degree.
While an undergraduate, he
participated in drama and
debating, and was an ROTC
cadet. Continuing his formal
education. Dr. Freeman
received a Th. M. from
Southern Baptist Theological


Seminary, and his M.A. and
Ed. D. from Oklahoma State

In addition to the years of
dedication and service to
Campbell, Dr. Freeman, as an
authority in the field of
parapsychology, has made
equal contributions on the
campus of Duke University. His
professional training and
experience in parapsychology
has likewise taken him to
several European University
campuses. Furthermore, apart
from his academic
contributions both here and
abroad. Dr. Freeman also
devotes his time and talent to
delinquent children in the
Durham area. Dr. Freeman also
finds time for membership in

several organizations which
include the American
Association of University
Professors and the Kiwanis

Dr. Freeman's teaching
career spans 23 years. He taught
at Wayland College and Duke
University before coming to
Campbell as a Professor of
Psychology. Shortly after his
arrival, his candid lectures and
genuine concern quickly won
the respect of students.
Campbell College is indeed
privileged to have a man of
such professional immenence
and an individual who
continuously demonstrates his
interest for others.

On behalf of the entire
college family, we recognize Dr.
Freeman as a Christian, a
teacher, and as a friend.

Everybody's Doing It!

Flashing lights, mirrored

' es, and boogie beats coax
siuuents to listen to the music
and let their bodies move. Dis-
cos have become a way of life
and students frequent them
every chance they get. Once
they decide they want to go
where the people dance, the
Night Fever has hit.

' 'le dorms, showers steam,

J heal up and hair dryers

blow everyone a little closer to
the action. It's not enough to
wear denim and Boogie Shoes.
Only the best is good enough for
the disco.

Students hustle, rock, and
slide to the disco tunes. Some
Get Off on doing their own
thing, but no night is complete
without shagging. Beach lovers
have Sand In Their Shoes as
they pretzel their way through
the music.

For several hours, students
Freak Out to the latest disco
hits. As the students form a
Groove Line back to the Creek,
It's obvious from their
exhausted expressions that they
love the night life.




Spring Picnic

The advent of Spring Festival
brought on, as always, a school
wide picnic. Hot hungry
students swarmed the
Marshbanks courtyard and
stood in long, slow moving
lines, waiting to fill their plates
with food before the fUes
devoured it.

A band urged the rampant
crowd to Be Young, Be Foolish
and Be Happy, but no one
needed to be reminded.
Though for the worry of
impending exams, most
everyone was hard hit by an

epidemic of carefree spring

It was a typical Creek spring
in every respect. While many
students were still passing
through the food line, the
faithful rains came. The party
broke up as the band struggled
to protect their equipment, and
drenched picnicers dashed for
cover. There's nothing quite
like eating a soggy sandwich and
drinking watered down
lemonade on the portico of Day

Spring Field events took
place with the usual antics, but
with a new twist. For the first
time, losing tug-of-war teams
didn't face the prospect of
being dragged into an oversized
mud puddle. Not that it was
needed. The wettest spring fes-
tival in years provided a damp
muddy field, assuring each par-
ticipant his share of dirt and

Four teams made the tug-of-
war finals. Senior Max Mann
planted his feet firmly in the
soggy ground and pulled his
team to victory. The prize? . . .

One Last Fling . . .

Marshbanks Cafeteria was
transformed into a Roman gar-
den as the junior class hosted
the Honor Ball. Students de-
parted from the uniform gym
shorts and flip flops for a few
hours to dress in their finest at-
tire for the year's most formal

The Fat Ammons Band, a
splinter of Bill Deal and the
Rhondells, provided the music
which ranged from Saturday
Night Fever disco hits to salt
water shag tunes.

The evening's highlight was

the presentation of Spring
Queen Tommie Smith, and
Susan Lloyd, her maid-of-
honor. Other senior attendants
were Vickie Daughtry and Beth
Nancy Jo Price represented the
junior class and Linda Haislip
and Tammy Hodge stood in for
the sophomores. Serving the
freshman class were Carol Gay
and Cherie Byrd.

The queen cried, the band
played on, and students
lingered at the last dance of the

Student . . .

In spite of the usual
backstage jitters experienced
by both the contestants and
their close friends, the spring
talent show was a resounding

Sherry Jones clinched first
place honors with a medley of
oldies / Gotta Lotta Livin' to
Do and Can't Help Loving That
Man of Mine. Second-place
winner Brian Davis was a comic
hit with his Foster Brooks im-
personation. The jazz ensemble
Quintessence played the popu-
lar hit Feels So Good and sec-
ured third place.

. . . Talent

Mad Dog 20/20 was the stand-
ing joke of Harvest Festival as
Jerry Easley emceed the most
smoothly produced talent show
in years. Careful planning by
the entertainment committee
led to an evening of listening
pleasure. Faced with an im-
pressive array of talent, judges

momentarily awarded senior
Greg McFarland $75 for his ar-
rangement o{ Classical Gas.
Bert Sigman took 2nd place
with his rendition of/ Love You
Just the Way You Are and 3rd
place was taken by Elizabeth
Moss who sang / Honestly Love

Bert Parks would have been
proud of the lovely contestants
that crossed the stage of Turner
Auditorium during Harvest
Festival. Students were given
the chance to see some of their
favorite male professors and
friends parade in drag before a
packed house of curious
spectators. As if the evening
gown competition was not
enough to make Anita Bryant's
head swim, the audience was

treated to bathing suit
competition and talent.

First place faculty winner.
Dr. Clyde Edgerton stole the
show with his rock and roll
piano show. Bathing beauty,
Kenny Garber, stole second
place before landing face up in
a swoon. Quietly poised Hank
"Magnolia Blossom" Dunbar
won first place with his talented
rendition of "I Could Have
Danced All Night."

Master of Ceremonies Dale

van Home delighted everyone

by dedicating his composition

"What a Difference You Made

in My Life" to the Special

Olympics representatives who

attended the pageant. The

pageant was entertaining and

suceeded in raising over $600.00

for the Special Olympics



The Games People Play




It was a typically chilly
autumn afternoon as both
students and alumni came out
to support the Camels in their
Homecoming Day battle against
Duke. The spectators all
dressed in the best Ivy League
tradition as the cheerleaders
put on the familiar skirts, vests,
and corsages.

As the game's iirst half drew
to a close, students eagerly
awaited the half time presenta-
tion of the Harvest Court and
the crowning of Harvest Queen
Ellen Casper and Princess
Donna Chewning.

As the action resumed, the
Camels went on to a 1-1 tie
while the spectators tried to
keep warm under the sinking

The Temptations







A Hypnotic Suggestion

Gil Eagles, billed as the star
of "America's Strangest and
Funniest Show", brought his
extrasensory and hypnotic
powers to the Creek for Harvest
Festival. Students were de-
lighted as they watched hyp-
nosis change their friends into a
cast of characters ranging from
dancers, sheriffs and a drill
sergeant to Miss Universe and
the Roadrunner.

The dynamic showman had
his audience literally rolling in
the aisles as he took his subjects
to Hawaii, Hialiah Racetrack,
deep sea fishing, and to the

Eagles also proved his re-
markable control of ESP as he
entered the minds of an amazed
audiance. With eyes tightly
bandaged, he spoke with sev-
eral wary students about mat-
ters known only to themselves
and identified objects and col-
ors by concentrating on them.

Promotion fliers warned the
campus to expect something
phenomenal of Gil Eagles and
no one was disappointed.

Eager to enjoy the thrill of
victory or to endure the agony
of defeat, the APO Gong Show
contestants unflinchingly
endured the critical opinion of
judges Chico Carter, Frank
L'pchurch, and Roy Phelps.
Crow Stancil rendered a
heart-felt song as he serenaded
the Easter Seals poster girl. The
Every Others harmonized on
"Always and Forever". Elisius,
the puppet team, took first
prize with "The Streak". The
Gong Show raised $350.00 for
the Easter Seals Foundation.

The Special Olympics
program is in its third year of
existence on campus. Students

provide not only monetary but
personal assistance in the
program that was begun by the
Kennedy Foundation.

Money raised in campus
activities is used to provide
transportation, food, and
ribbons for the county's 260

The Special Olympics give
handicapped children the
opportunity to compete and
demonstrate their abilities.
Each child who competes is
awarded for his efforts in
accordance with their motto
"Each child is a winner."

Reaching Out

Twenty students capped
Spring Festival week by rocking
around the clock for the
Epilepsy Foundation. Risking
tired, sore feet and a sleepless
night, they danced in a 24 hour
marathon sponsored by Men's
and Women's Campuses.

Over $3,400 was raised
through pledges and admission
donations. Mike Parsons,
sophomore and Jeannie Camp,
senior, danced their way to
victory to the tune of $650.

Easter vacation was
preceeded by the Bryan Hall
Egg Hunt. Faculty members
raised $361.91 for Easter Seals
through pledges. Dr. Clyde
Edgerton, complete with rabbit
ears and a cotton tail, was the

proud winner of a home baked
cake, presented for raising the
most money.

The money raised was used to
purchase much needed
rehabilitiation equipment for
handicapped Harnett County

Fall festivities got underway
as Psy Cam. BSU and Circle K
carried Halloween to the
Harnett Mental Health Center.
Both the mentally retarded
children and the club members
were rewarded. The children
were given prizes for their
participation in games and the
costume contest, and the proud
smiles on their faces were
reward enought for the
Campbell students.






Shouts and screams filled the
air and evening skies as
hundreds of girls swarmed
men's campus and halls. What's
this? Girls in guys dorms? Yes,
it was Halloween. Forty-five
minutes later, several of the
guys that survived the masacre
managed to make it to women's
campus for fun and games.

The purpose of this chaos was
all for a good cause — to collect
money for UNICEF. The funds
raised by the project totaled
$404.82. Not bad for a night of
penny chasing.

A variety of costumes were
featured in the dorms and at
the Halloween dance that
followed. The ensembles
ranged from togas, greasers,
and looney-tunes to
indescribable undesirables.
The night was alive with color
and excitement, a sight to


Back To School

Students converged on the
sleepy campus in August
expecting to find everything as
it had been in the spring.
Everyone slept in the same
dorms, ate the same food in the
same cafeterias, and registered
in the same way.

There was one variation that
made a great difference. Old
faces were missed and
freshmen seemed to have taken
over the campus. Realizing that
this was part of the yearly
education cycle, everyone
moved on to traditional back
to school festivities.

After loading paper plates
with the usual picnic fare, those
who wanted worked off calories
playing volleyball. Less athletic
persons waited until the disco
show and then sweated off more
weight than they danced off,
due to poor ventilation in the

The week's final official
event was the President's
Reception. As students shook
hands with President Wiggins
and spoke to their professors, it
was clear that school had really

Let It Snow


The year's big snow drifted softly
to the ground and transformed The
Creek into a winter wonderland.
The tranquility lasted only until the
co-eds awoke and discovered the
powdery landscape.

Screams of delight filled the air
as students piled on layers of old
clothes. The morning found many
students cutting classes and mixing
up batch after batch of snow cream,
as others decorated their dorm
courtyards with snowmen.

Students found entering the
cafeteria to be a dangerous mission
as they dodged the snowballs being
pitched at them by fellow students.
Once inside, the excitement failed
to subside as the snow came sailing
into the lobby.

The afternoon was spent in front
of Marshbanks as mischievous boys
pulled reluctant girls into the snow
and stuffed the white stuff in their

As night fell, the exhausted
students retired indoors to thaw out
from the days outdoor rigors.
