On the Move

The 1984-85 Wrestling team
under the leadership of Coach
Jim Richardson had a tough
schedule with tournaments fea-
turing such teams as the Citadel,
Duke, and Appalachian. Elon
placed second in the Washing-
ton and Lee tournament and
fifth in the Mid-South Tourna-
ment at Carson-Newman.

One important event pointed
out by Coach Richardson was
the teams participating in the Ti-
ger 8 Tournament at Clemson
University. This tournament fea-
tured such high-caliber teams as
Clemson, Notre Dame, South-
west Missouri, Stetson Universi-
ty and the University of Central
Florida. Junior Johnny Travis was

Elon's only champion in this
meet with a 13-0 win in the finals
over Dave Helms of Notre

Coach Richardson pointed
out outstanding wrestler Bobby
Brown who was 26-3-1 before
the Carson-Newman meet.

After Years of High Rankings and
Six Returning Lettermen

The Tradition just Gets Better

Eion has always had an excel-
lent Golf team, capturing the
NAIA championship and District
titles. The Christians picked up a
4th place finish in the NAIA Na-
tionals held in Michigan last June
and captured the District 26 title
once more.

Morningstar's linksters who
have been to the NAIA tourna-

ment for 9 consecutive years,
were ranked in 1st place in the
last NAIA poll before the tourna-
ment in June. The 1984 team
MVP was Hugh Gill.

The 1985 Golf Roster consists
of the following: Neal Braxton,
Eddie Cofino, Chris Dockrill,
Ron Dorrestein, Bob Fikac, Greg
Fry, Craig Gunn, Greg Haley,

John Horsley, Tom Martine, Jim-
my Merriman, Barry Pilson, Da-
vid Russell, David Startzel, Tay-
lor Trogdon, Chuck Welch, Cecil
Worsley and Richard Adams.

With six returning lettermen
the 1985 team looks as though
the winning tradition will go on.

Fighting Christian Cheerleaders were always

Spirit Boosters

The 1984-85 Cheerleading
squad faced many problems
throughout the year. First the
team experienced a loss of
members between football sea-
son and basketball season. New
girls were chosen to replace
those who left. The squad had a

difficult time with tryouts for the
new members during the middle
of football season. The new giris
had to learn quickly and work
their way into the routine with
the rest of the squad.

The members of the Elon
Cheerleading Squad are: Sherri

St. Clair, Captain; Karen Long,
Co-captain; Janice Orlando, Lisa
Gentry, Elise Vincentini, Jill
Goodman, Kelly York, and Susan
Townsend. These girls put in
many long hours of practice and
have been a dedicated squad
despite the set-backs.

After 17 years

Coach Kelly Retires


Coach Don Kelly is retiring as
a professor and as Assistant
Football Coach after countless
achievements here at Elon.

Kelly began his college teach-
ing career here when he joined
on with head football coach Red
Wilson in 1967. This was back
when Dr. Danieley was presi-
dent of the school and Lenoir-
Rhyne had a lock on the Caroli-
na Conference.

The Physical Education De-
partment was something less

than it is now and Kelly entered
as head of that department. One
of the accomplishments here
that has brought him the most
joy is the establishments of the
aquatics program.

Under Kelly's guidance the
program has expanded to the
point it is now at, which includes
classes in Water Safety Instruc-
tion and Scuba to name only
two. Kelly has logged more than
2000 hours teaching these Red
Cross programs.

When reminiscing, Kelly
seems to remember the best of
times. Like the years when the
Fightin' Christians broke the
Lone Star (a Texas conference)
dominance of the NAIA by gar-
nishing back to back national
championships in 1980-81.

Dr. janie Brown, Head of the
Physical Education Department
has known Kelly since the days
at Reynolds and said he will be
sorely missed because, "he has a
real dedication to teaching. He is
truly interested in seeing stu-
dents learn the skill and learn it

Kelly has always planned on
ending his coaching career at
the minimum retirement age. He
said, "\ want to leave with a
good attitude even though I feel
I can still make contributions. It's
time for youth and new ideas.

When asked what he will miss
most about Elon, Kelly replied,
"the students and the continual
growth of the college. Also, the
affiliation with all the fine
coaches Elon has been fortunate
enough to have." (Reprinted

Something for everyone . . .

Elon students had unlimited opportunities to become in-
volved. From the SGA to the outing Society, Elon offered a
wide range of clubs, committees, board publications and other
organizations giving students something extra to fill their
schedules. Life at Elon was not all studying or partying. It con-
sisted of getting involved in something worthwhile in order to
make them a little better or stronger than before. More friends
and acquaintances, setting goals and striving with others to
reach them — caring about Elon and about each other.

Students benefited from whatever tasks they set out to per-
form. Whether it was a SUB program, a yearbook or newspa-
per deadline, selling doughnuts for SAM, or a devotion for BSD
luncheon, students put in many hours of hard work and caring
to be involved. The possibilities at Elon are many. Regardless of
what major or ability, Elon offered an opportunity for each

Student Government and Student Union Board


Talent Search^

During Parent's Weekend,
the SUB again sponsored
the annual Talent Show.

The Student Government Asso-
ciation (S.G.A.) has had another
outstanding year representing the
students of Elon College. The
S.G.A. worked for students in the
1984-85 year through its various
activities, Homecoming, Spring
Fling, and also through legislation
designed to make Elon a better
place for students.

The S.G.A. funds both the Stu-
dent Union Board and the Liberal
Arts Forum, which served stu-
dents well this year through var-
ious activities, movies, and con-
certs, highlighted by the Joe
McGuiness lecture in the fall and
Spring Fling in the Spring.

The S.G.A. continued to work

in the Senate, to promote the
welfare of the student body
through legislation. A fall break
for students, proposed by the
S.G.A. with the support of stu-
dents, was approved by the ad-
ministration for 1985. The S.G.A.
worked also on the elimination of
midterm mailings to parents, on
revising the S.G.A. constitution,
and on protecting student rights
through the college judicial sys-

With the hard work and sup-
port of the students that make it
up the Elon College Student Gov-
ernment Association continued
in 1984-85 to make a positive con-
tribution to Elon College and to

the students of Elon.

The Student Union Board is re-
sponsible for programming activi-
ties for the Elon students. Special
events such as concerts by Side-
winder and the Spongetones,
who performed last spring; and
the Voltage Brothers and the
Waller Family, who performed
last fall. The movies which were
shown every other Friday night in
Whitley Auditorium; speakers for
the Coffeehouse; comedians and
lecturers are sponsored by SUB.
They are responsible for the ac-
tivities in the gameroom and the
T.V./video room.

Insight and Sound

With Colonnades and WSOE

WSOE underwent some sig-
nificant changes this summer to
enhance the progress of the only
FM station now located in Burl-
ington. The station staff and fac-
ulty advisor banged hammers
and sawed wood all summer in
order to build a news-room and
renovate the production room
in time for the Open House cere-
monies during Homecoming
Weekend. They also worked
day and night installing sound
insulation in both studios as well
as reorganizing the On-Air-Stu-
dio during the last weeks of
summer vacation. The final
touches were finished at ap-

proximately 10:50 the night be-
fore Homecoming when the
new logo for the All New Pro-
gressive WSOE was painted on
the station wall.

In addition to these activities,
General Manager jim Cahill and
the rest of the WSOE staff have
been working diligently trying to
make Elon College students real-
ize that WSOE is an outlet for
students to entertain, create and
inform the students of Elon Col-
lege and the surrounding com-
munity of potential students and

The literary magazine of Elon
College, called the Colonnades,

is published annually in the
spring. The Colonnades is made
up of stories, poetry and works
of art. These features can be sub-
mitted by students, faculty or
members of the community. The
Colonnades is not just a maga-
zine for the college, but the
community has the opportunity
to receive a copy. This is one
way where the college tries to
bring the college and the com-
munity together. The Colon-
nades prints some good publica-
tions from the students and peo-
ple of Elon College.

During the organization's

fair, WSOE set up a table to

spark student interest.

66 Pendulum

In spite of numerous changes,
like staff turnovers and relocat-
ing to another office, the Pendu-
lum managed to publish an edi-
tion each week. Diligent work
and determination on the part of
newspaper staffers overcame
the complications of a new loca-
tion and a new computer. By the
start of Spring semester, it was
business as usual for the college
weekly newspaper.

The college's purchase of
high-tech typesetting equip-
ment made it possible for the
Pendulum to be produced en-
tirely in-house. Newspaper staff
wrote, composed, typeset and
pasted-up the publication each
week in their office on William-
son Avenue — adding a new di-
mension to their journalistic ex-

pertise. The Pendulum contin-
ues to be the "newspaper of
record" for the Elon College
community and draws high
praise from faculty, administra-
tive staff and students.

Elon College entered the
mainstream of video-communi-
cation this year with its addition
of sophisticated TV production
equipment and the creation of a
broadcast quality TV studio in
the Learning Resource Center.
Mr. Ray Johnson now produces
a weekly cable TV program
called Elon In Review which airs
on a local public access channel.
These changes led to the addi-
tion of a new major in Mass
Communication and the in-
volvement of many students in
progressive video production.

intramural teams were all a part of the rituals of student life
at Elon.
