                      rightly-colored jerseys were

                      tangible reminders of the strong

club loyalty felt at Harding.     Kinship developed

through common goals and shared experiences

such as mixers, hayrides, baUgames and service

projects.    Clubs played an integral social role

because of the time and dedication given them.

And while clubs were not the only place where

friendships formed, they were a good starting

place. They established a foundation for friendship

- a chance to grow closer to each other and to God.

         A GOAL FOR
  Pledge week is frequently dreaded, but not by
AGO's pledges, because instead of pledges seIYing
members, AGO members served their pledges.
   "It was one reason I joined the club," Kevin
Crumley said. "AGO acted on the idea of
seIYanthood. That was how they conducted pledge
week." The goal of Alpha Gamma Omega's pledge
week was to get to know the new members. "We
tried not to intimidate the pledges . .We just wanted
to get to know them and create friendships,"
President Jason Looney said.
   The idea of seIYanthood extended to the other
pledges around campus. When sponsor Rick Healy
found a pledge having difficulty with the week's
events, he asked AGO pledges to write the person
an encouraging note. "The point of AGO is to serve
people - whether or not they are members of
AGO," Looney said.
  "During rough night, AGO members really be-
came imitators of Christ," Crumley said. "We had a
devo and then the members washed our feet. They
gave us towels to commemorate the event. After
that, they treated us to a pizza party."
   "Pledge week set the tone for the rest of the
semester," Looney said.
  AGO's prinCiple of servanthood blessed them.
"We have become a tight-knit group of guys,"
Crumley said.

          A DINNER IN
      For the first time, Alpha Tau Epsilon cel-
ebrated Hallowee n together by gathering at mem-
ber Jess Robertson's house for a costume party. The
guys all brought dates and ate di nner together, and
afterwards they played games.
      The costumes were humorous and memo-
rable. "Jess works at a bowling alley, so he dressed
u p like a funny bowler," said President Matt
Huddleston. "My date and I dressed like the Blues
Brothers. "    The games were fun as well.               The
members said they especially enjoyed charades -
guys against the girls. "It's not just every day that
you play charades," said Dennis O'Malley, a junior
from Norman, Okla "We thought up complicated
titles that no one had ever heard of. They were
really hard to act out. "
       Another game they liked was a word game.
For a certain length of time, no one was allowed to
say a particular word, for example "that. " Each
member was given a clothespin, which was taken
away if he said the forbidden word. This proved to
be tricky. "Some words just slip in without you
noticing," said H uddleston.
     Alpha Tau Epsilon had a fun gathering and
grew closer in the process. "It was an effort to keep
our club close and together," O'Malley said.

         A FOCUS ON
   When Christmas time rolled around on campus,
thoughts of students often turned towards home.
For Chi Omega Pi social club, however, attention
was focused on a little school in Searcy.
   For their fall service project, the club hosted a
Christmas party for students of the Sunshine School,
a facility for mentally- and phYSically-challenged
children and teenagers.
   Chi Omega Pi members spent a lot of time
preparing for the big event. All club participants
were given a personal fact profile indicating a
student's hobbies and interests. The girls then
bought appropriate presents and assembled Christ-
mas stockings for the children.
   Sunshine School students were in               on the plan-
ning as well. They made a paper chain to count
down to the day of the party and removed a link
each day in anticipation of the festivities.
   Wendy Yeakle, who gave a five-year old boy
some race cars, sa id, "It was neat to see that even
the littlest thing causes their faces to light up."
   Chi Omega Pi also worked with the Sunshine
School students this spring when they participated
in Special Olympics. The members went to watch
the races, cheer the kids on , and to be "huggers,"
embracing children as they crossed the finish line.

                          Social Clubs
   In keeping with Harding and its many traditions,
social clubs have established their own traditions
through the years. One of the most notable has
been that of Chi Sigma Alpha.
   Each semester since 1963, the men of Chi Sigma
Alpha have gotten special late permission to leave
the dorms after curfew        [0   go serenade rhe girls in
campus reside nce halls. Responding to a repertoire
ranging from "The 12 Days of Christmas" to "You've
Lost that Lovin' Feelin," the girls have generally
been appreciative and have shown it by throwing
open their windows a nd cheering.
   "We usually wear o ur club jerseys the day after
serenading and the gi rls come up and thank us,"
said Clif Mims, adding, "It seems like a little thing,
but the girls like it." Mims said , "Serenading has
been a neat traditio n and we are honored that the
university has let us continue it. "
   \Vhile this traditio n was fun and enteltaining, it
was not reflective of everything the club did. Chi
Sigma Alpha and its sister club, Regina, have served
Michae l Shoenberger, a 3D-year-old invalid, for a
number o f yea rs. These clubs worked together to
make the bu rden easier for Michael's parents and
the wo rld a bit brighter fo r Michael.
   As clubs continued to meet the social needs of
students, Chi Sigma Alpha's activities were a uniqu e
example of emertainmem and service.

        A CHANCE TO
   Delta Chi Delta's five-year anniversary called for
a Homecoming reunion - a first for this men's social
   The reunion was held at the home of campus
minister Dwight (and Barby) Smith, one of the
club's sponsors. The members showed pictures
and other memorabilia from this and previolls
   Delta Chi Delta was chartered in April, 1989.
Founding members saw a need for another men's
club with a different focus. Johnny Scott, the only
charter member still at Hard ing, said they "wanted
to start a club that would make an impression o n
campus, a club that wou ld focus on serving and
encouraging one another in their Christian values,"
a focus he says they have kept.
   The club had 72 active members this year,
moving them from small to medium club sports and
providing greater 0pp0r[uniry to be involved in
campus activities, service projects and Spring Sing.
President Don Neal said, "I think, through all the
changes, that our focus hasn't changed. The things
that we hold dear, such as unity, have remained the
      Delta Chi Delta's motto, Psalms 133:1, says
"How good it is when brothers live together in
unity." This first reunion showed how strong that
unity actually is.

    The ide a for Delta Gamma Rho 's service project
developed when some members worked with
children during an inner-city Houston campaign
during the summer. Susan Billingsley said , "We
really fell in love with the children in Houston , so
when we came back this semeste r, we started going
to church with the inner-city children in Little Rock. "
    Club members he lped the childre n to have a day
without the pressures of everyday life. They spent
the day at The Discove ry Zone, afte r which they
enjoyed lu nch together. Their main goal was to
show them the benefits of working for the Lord.
    "This service project helped the girls realize that
the re is life after Harding, and that we need to be
sensitive to people from all walks of life," said
President Amy Ferguson. Billingsley said, "We have
all been blessed tremendously w ith material things.
This helps us see that some people aren 't so blessed
and that we have a chance to make a difference in
their lives."
    Through their work, the girls of Delta Gamma
Rho were able to teach the inne r-City children about
the Lord and show them the benefits of working in
His church. In helping care for these children , the
girls fe lt a sense of responsibility and increased their
own faith and strength .

         A NEED FOR
   This year, Galaxy initiated its own service project,
drawing upon club members' special talents.
   Several tilnes during the semester, groups of
members would gather to visit an elementary
school in North Little Rock to work with students.
   The idea originated when a teacher at the
elementary school, who dates a member of the
club, discovered that several of her third-grade
students came from single-parent families. 50 club
members visited the school during the day, and
played with them during P .E. or recess. All activities
were confined to the school grounds.
   "We provided good male role models," member
Shannon Simmons said. He stressed that many of
the children did not have fathers and seemed to
truly enjoy playi ng and spending time with these
young men.                                        .
   President Paul Pursell said, "This is something
that we like to do to benefit people. " He explained
that, in the past, the club did not spend a lot of time
on service projects and it was hard to get members
involved. \Vith this project, however, the entire
club was active with the children. He felt that the
project benefited the club and the kids they came
into contact with.
   Involvement with these children gave Galaxy
members something productive to do during thei r
free time, and also showed the children good
examples of what Christian service and attitude is
all about.

           FUNDS FOR
   This year GATA's service project involved the
Arkansas School for the Deaf and Blind . GATA
raised the money to help refurnish some of their
dorm rooms.' Alpha Tau went along with Gata to
present the money to the school and to spend some
time w ith the children living in the dorms. They
threw a small party for the people there and
presented the school with the money they raised.
   "The staff was really glad we came," said GATA
president Dawn Spell. "The kids were excited to
have people even try to communicate with them."
   GATA had a cookie sale to raise money. Each girl
in the club baked homemade cookies which they
sold one week in the student center. This raised
$160, and GATA added to it for a total of$300. The
money was given to the school to use for personal
items in the dorm they otherwise could not pur-
   "It was great to share what we had with th em, "
said Spell.
   GATA greatly influenced the children and the
people associated wi th the Deaf and Blind School.
They showed that there are people out there who
want to help support such projects, but most
importantly, they spent time with children who
needed it.

          SERVING ALL
   This year Ju Go]u took an afternoo n during the
holiday season to spend widl elde rly residents of
Sea rcy's Le isure Lodge. ]u Go Ju supplied goodies,
gifts and g lad tidings. They sang Christmas caro ls
to usher in the holiday spirit.
   "It makes you fee l good to he lp someone. Some
of these people just sit here day afte r day and this
one trip could mean the w o rld (Q them ," senior
Jennifer Land said . Freshman AngeJee \X1hitl ow
said , "I think that it is great that we rook the time to
go and share the season with people who may not
have had anyone else to sha re it w ith. "
    The projecr's emphasis was not simply to give
gifts bO[ ro show a Christian spirit and to serve God
by serving others.
   Ju Go Ju also participated in a second service
project. The Pleasant Valley Church Of Christ in
Little Rock had 11 children who we re in need. The
club purchased gifts to surprise the child ren a nd the
church. Most gifts we re necessities. Some children
received toys, but most received shoes and clothes.
   ]u Go Ju gave a few childre n a few small things
that made a large impact. "1 feel that it was just a
good thing ro do to make a difference in a little kid 's

         A FOCUS ON
   As any family nurtures its members, Kappa
Sigma Kappa cente red their attention this year on
one of their own. When freshman member Eric
Jenkins learned that a brain tumor had returned, the
club decided to ra ise money to assist with his
medical expenses.
   During [he first week in December, foul' con-
secutive projects focused on the effort. A collection
at Wed nesday's Peak of the Week, a special music
festival o n Thursday, admission to the Friday night
movie and a workday fo r facu lty on Saturday
helped to fund their newly-established "Friends of
Eric Jenkins Foundation. " The weeks events col-
lected $3,400 fo r the project.
   Kappa Sigma Kappa worked with the Student
Activities Council to have all proceeds from the
December 3 showing of ;'Ernest Saves Christmas"
added to the Je nkins Foundation fund. The work
day for faculty found Kappa Sigma Kappa guys
raking leaves, cleaning garages and other tasks.
   Club President Je rre Glover said , "Eric was a
freshman pledge and we hadn't known him long,
but our brotherhood was strong and we had a
strong desi re to do th is for him. " Continued dona-
tions brought the total raised to $5,000 by Christmas
   Kappa Sigma Kappa continued taking donatio ns
for the Jenkins fund and contributed leftover club
dues to the cause they so strongly supported.
                                          - Alia Casey

and we had a strong desire to
do this for him."

  What would it be like to atte nd a club function
where you could completely relax and be you rself,
with no pressure and no rigorous structure? Ka ppa
Tau Omega a nd their fall function dates could tell
you, for this is just the type of atmosphere they
attempted to create.          Rather than having a tradi-
tio nal hayride, Kappa Tau Omega members took
their dates to Heber Springs for a cookout. While
they prepared to eat, they played volleyball or
football on the beach. And they climbed up Sugarloaf
Mounta in near the end of the day to watch the sun
set and have a bonfire.
   Kappa Tau Omega prided itself on its unique-
ness. President Ryan King said , "We try to be
different and do our own thing."
   The members of Kappa Tau Omega enjoy their
unique tradition. "It's a chance to be together and
relax, " sa id junior Kevin Burton, from Garland,
T exas. And , because it is different, it is an appro-
priate activity for them, members said. "[t's a lot of
fun ," said Chad Brown, a junior from Orange,
Texas. "[t fits the personality of our club because
it's nor a big organized event or high in cost. We're
not much on conformity."
   For a club that enjoys a chance to be together in
a relaxed and spontaneous atmosphere, the Heber
Springs cookout was a perfect outing.

           A SALE FOR
   Ka Re Ta began a service project in 1988 which
has become a tradition for the group . Once each
semester, the girls gather, price, tag and sell leftover
items from His House, a benevolence min istry of
the College Church of Christ.
    Members took the hard-to-move items from H is
House, including books, toys, clothing and appli-
ances in oe(!d of minor repairs, and sold them on a
chilly November Saturday.
    George \\lilson, the elder in charge of the minis-
try, a nd his w ife, Rosemary, provided the setting for
the sale by allowi ng the gi rls to use their driveway.
Typical of garage sales in this area, customers began
arriving at 6:00 a.m. and, when the sale ended at
3 ,00 p.m., more th an 5300 had been raised to buy
food and othe r pantry items for needy families .
    A repeat performance in the spring allowed
additio nal funcls to be ava ilable. Club member
Rena McCarty said, "Having the garage sale each
semester really helps His HOllse, the community
and the club. His House gets money it needs, the
community gets to purchase items they need and [Q
have its needy families he lped, and the club gets a
lot of respect for what we are trying to do."
    Ka Re Ta enjoyed doing the ga rage sale. "It's
something we all really do together," President
Johnna Jones said. Ju nior Jenny Tyree added, "It's
great knowing that something we like to do can
help someone."

                 A GIFT IN
   When their long-time sponsor, Ed White, died in
July, the members of King's Men made a mid-year's
resolution to dedicate an upcoming service project
to the memOlY of their former friend and mentor.
The White family requested that all monetary gifts
be donated to the Searcy Children's Home, so the
club made thei r own donation in \X1hire's name.
   "We decided at the beginning of the fall semester
to donate all leftover club money to the children's
home and leave our club account at SO," Vice
President John Exum said. Members also took up
collections at club meetings to supplement the final
   "\'(1hite had been ollr sponsor for 18 years; King's
Men is only 20 yea rs old. Natu rall y we wanted to do
something special in remembrance of his service,"
President Mike Gilpin said.
  According to Gilpin, the project was more than
just a donation. "After \Xlhite was hospitalized in
July, we pitched in to help the family, doing odd
jobs like mowing the yard. We have continued to
check on Mrs. White , to make sure she's taken care
of, " he said.
   Prior to presenting the donation in Decen1ber,
Gi lpin took the opportunity to tour the children's
home during its open house. "I was able to see the
grounds and a ll the rooms," he said. "They have a
fine facility and I know the money will be put to
good use."

brance of his service."

    Thursday aftemoon of pledge week, the Knights
and their squires (pledges) gathered for the annual
jOust. They transformed Harding's front lawn inro
a scene from medieval Europe. Armored warriors
galloped across the green while robed ladies watched
from their distant platform. But the lance was made
of foam rather than metal, and a hit was determined
by how much shaving cream a squire could leave
on his opponent. The squires were bracketed,
competing to defend the honor of a fair maiden,
until finally, one squire was declared the champion.
He then had to fight against one of the Lord Knight
members, who, as usual, defeated him.
    Students walking across the front lawn on Thurs-
day immediately recognized the familiar joust.
Many, besides those in Kn ights, stayed to watch.
"1['s a un ique campus event thac provides an outlet
fo r everyone during pledge week," said Knights
president, Nathan Mellor. "It's a tradition that
distinguishes our club from the others. ,.
    Besides being unique, the joust represented a
cornpelition which actually used to take place. "It's
a re-enactment of an event that has a history, even
though it's not real. It's not just another pointless
task they make lip for you do during pledge week, "
commented PhillipShero, a freshman from Crowley,
Texas. "The best part was defending the honor of
the fair maiden," he added.
    The Knights' joust creatively provided a refresh-
 ing pledge week activity in keeping with the club's
name and theme.

   Ea rly in the fall , Ko Jo Kai got a fresh start by
escaping fo r a weeke nd to Camp Tahkodah. This
was a ti me fo r the club to grow closer and stronger
before ind ucti ng its new membe rs. "It was a chance
for us to get away from our usual e nviro nme nt,"
said Preside nt Leah Ma ngrum , a senior from
McComb, Miss. "We focused o n God and each
other instead of everyday, unimportant things. "
   One acti vity the girls e njoyed during the week-
e nd was having bags in w hich each member wrote
what they admired mOst about the others. "That was
our souvenir from the weeke nd," Mangrum said.
   "Ko Jo Ka i is a ve ry diverse group of girls,"
explained Mangrum. "When we got away, there
were no tiries and no diversities. Everyone could
just be the mselves."
   Vice President Ke ll y Coope r, a senior from Olive
Branch, Miss., emp hasized the weekend as a re fl ec-
tion of he r involve ment w ith the club. "I w itnessed
the gi rls reach fa rther than I ever thought they
could, push each other to the li mit, and stimulate
and learn from each other. We were all united by
one jersey."
   'Just by looking back on that one weekend, the
feeli ng returns," Ma ngrum said. "It totally changed
the way we looked at each other when we got back
to campus. It's amazing what one weekend did for
our frie nds hips."

  Kyodai traveled to Searcy's Spring Park Novem-
ber 6 to string up Christmas lights as a part of
Searcy's third annual Holiday of Lights. Club
me mbers enjoyed this activity, not simply as an off-
campus excursion, but as a chance to meet and
serve area residents.
  In keeping with Kyodai 's commitment to com-
munity service, member Steve Adams , who also
served on the city's Holiday of Lights committee,
suggested to the club that they assist with this
project in fu lfillment of their service project for the
year. The club chose to accomplish this task
because "it was an opportunity for club members to
be exposed to people who were not in any way
associated with Ha rding," club president Scott
Manuel said.
   Throughout the holiday season, Kyodai also
helped to raise funds for more lights and collected
toys for the Toys for Tots drive. They also contin-
ued their regular seIVice project - assisting in the
cleanup of city streets.
   By working at the park, the courthouse and in
the streets and through interaction with ci ty offi-
cials, a rea residents and local journalists, club
members were able to encourage a positive outlook
toward Harding within the community.

   The club motto for Lambda Sigma is "Triump h
through Togetherness," and this year they did that
in a variety of ways. From sports to service, the
Lambdas showed their enthusiasm and unity.
   Club activities were always sOI1-iething special.
November's hayride even featured a fireworks
display. In the spring, they planned a banquet, a
lock-in, several picnics and other activities.
   Lambdas also triumphed in sports. Last yea r,
they were awarded the All-Sports trophy for small
clubs. This year, they held the best records in
football and volleyball.
   Finally, Lambda Sigma was a club of servants.
Four times du ring the year, the club came together
to pick up litter o ff the highways. Through this, they
not o nl y made the a rea beau tifu l, but they also grew
closer through seJVice. I n reference [0 this activity,
Kevin Busch , a junior from Mission H ill, S.D. , said,
"It seems like a small thing, but it makes a big
difference and J guess that picking up trash togethe r
could be called a 'bonding experience. ,,,
   Lambda Sigma had 21 members with a wide
variety of majors and interests. But despite their
differences, they showed their ability to "triumph
through togetherness. "

      Arkansas cannot supply its own blood needs
and has [Q import thousands of units from across the
coumry. Harding University is one of the main
sources of blood for central Arkansas.
     OEGE has sponsored blood drives for the
American Red Cross for more than 20 years, making
it possible for students and fa culty on campus to
donate blood. Michele Winter, president of OEGE
said , "People need b lood and it's great to know
there are people out there whom you can coum on
when they are reall y needed. "
     OEGE provided volunteers to help donors fill
out the registration papers, put labels on blood
bags, work the canteen, and make sure people
didn't faint. They also assisted the Red Cross in
cleaning up afterwards. In addition, they provided
publicity, making posters and making the swdents
aware of all the details.
       The blood drive which OEGE sponsored to
help the Red Cross in September brought in 236
units of blood and benefitted many people. Winter
said, "I'm glad we can reach out and help other
people,      It's great to see everyone come out,
especially a lot o f eager freshme n, ready to give for
the first time." Taran Rawlins said, "\Y/e can't make
people come out and donate, so it's great to see all
the interest that people have in helping others. "

   Phi Delta celebrated its 50th anniversary in
   In those 50 years, o ne thing that had not changed
was Phi Delta's desire to serve. Once evel)' two
weeks, the club he lped clean the local Headstart.
"We also break into groups of five and babysit for
Headstart once a month while they conduct a
parents' meeting," Shereen Henry said. Phi Delta
took a special interest in these children. "It's excit-
ing to see the kids' faces when we give our parties,"
said Leah Barber, a senior elementary education
major. They hosted a Christmas pany, which Santa
Claus attended, and a Valentine party. "The kids
love it," Henry said .
   Phi Delta was a small club, consisting of 37
members. This yea r's pledge class included 18
people. "They are a good group of girls. They are
excited. They are filled w ith new energy and ideas,"
Barber said. These new ideas have helped Phi De lta
evolve. "Phi Delta has changed. It has a re newed
spirit. The new pledges have e nhanced the life of
the club," she said.
    After 50 years, Phi Delta continued to reach out
to the children of Searcy. "We try to help the best
we can," Henry said. "We've been helping people
fo r a long time, and we plan to help many more.

   Have you ever been to a ki lt krash' A reggae fest?
A Pike fry' The variety of club functions held by Pi
Kappa Epsilon reflected the unique interests of the
   "I think we have the best functions o n campus,"
Vice President Glen Metheny said. "We have a
diverse group.of guys, and we try to have a different
kind of function every fall. "
   Last year's fall function challenged each member
to bring a little bravery, along with his date, if he
planned to ride the bull in Cabol.
   However, this fall 's kilt krash required a different
kind of bravery. "We didn't have to wear kilts, but
most everyone did," sophomore Brian Reis said.
"Our guys are very secure in their manhood."
  Creativity on a more serious side was seen last
spring when members discovered that the newborn
daughter of their sponsor, Scott Morris, had cystic
fibros is. They decided to give the money saved for
the spring function to Morris' family. A $1000 check
was given to Morris, along with a big card signed by
all the members. "It almost brought him to tears, "
Metheny said, "and it brought us closer together. "
    This year, for their service project, Pi Kappa
Epsilon held some fund raisers for cystic fibrosis
research, an indication of their continued commit-
ment to service and to the Morris family.

                     Social Clubs
   One of the many activities which Regina enjoys
is their annual Thanksgiving dinner which they
share 'with their brother club, Chi Sigma Alpha.
   Evely year, before the week-long holiday, Regina.
and Chi Sigma Alpha meet on Sunday afternoon in
the fe llowship hall of the College Church of Christ.
Me mbers from both clubs sign up to bring specific
food items, and those few who live off-campus and
have ovens are given the job of cooking the turkeys.
After dinner, the members enjoy a devotiona l, and
then a joint slide show.
    What makes this event so different is that it is the
only jOint activity during the fall semester that is
exclus ively for Regina and her brother club. It gives
the club members a chance to fe llowship and enjoy
the special bonds that they share.
   After the d inner is over, the clubs get in a circle
and sing their songs to each other. Last year, Regina
surprised Chi Sigma Alpha by singing to them a
song that was specially written for their brother
club. Chi Sigma Alpha had long had a song for
Regina , and members were excited that Regina had
finally written one for th em. ''\'(Ie already feel like
brothers and sisters, so it is only fitting that we share
the holiday that is traditionally set aside for fa mi-
lies," said Regina beau and Chi Sigma Alpha vice
president, Craig Wolfe.

   For the past two Octobers, Seminoles social club
has been involved with a special project for chil-
dren, a haunted house. Located both years at the
Searcy Emporium, the haunted house has become
a source of safe but scalY Halloween fun for local
kids and their parents.
   The project was not without its philanthropic
motives. All money raised was donated to local
charities and organizations. "Last year we presented
a lump sum to the Sunshine School. This year we
gave most of it to the United Way, " said president
Rich Ross.
   The event began the 22nd and continued through
Halloween. For the workers involved, this sched ule
called for a great deal of time, effort and inte nse
preparation. "A lot of work went into designing and
constructing the different rooms," said Ross. "For
the forest room, guys actually had to go out to the
woods and cut down limbs and trees. And for the
polka-dot room they had to do quite a bit of
painting. "
   Another feature of this year's haunted house was
a section of wooden tunne l underlaid with pJexigJass
flooring. As they entered this palt , visitors could
look down through the floor and view, to their
horror, a live assortment of snakes and rats.
   The haunted house provided a way to serve
others and have fun at the same time.

    "\Vith some functions, everyone is in their own
little group ... with the Barn Bash, we're alllOgether
having a great time," said Stephanie McCracken.
   [n the fall , Shantih held the ir fifth annual Barn
Bash, which Shantih membe rs originally planned as
an alte rnative to the traditional fall hayride.
    "One year, it was ra ining and muddy during the
hayride, and no one had a very good time,"
McCracken said. That experie nce encouraged the
officers to plan a different type of activity, o ne that
did not rely so heavily on tradition or good weather.
They rented a barn, planned some games, brought
plenty of refreshments, and gave birth to the Barn
   Since its debut in 1989, the Bash has become one
of the more popular fall club functions. Last fall,
Shantih members and their dates brought decorated
pumpkins as their entrance "tickets" for a pumpkin-
carving contest to be held later that evening. A band
was hired to entertain the members and guests as
they played games, pe rfo rmed skits and enjoyed
hot cider and other refreshme nts.
    \'(fill Shantih members continue their recent
"tradition?" You bet your barn they will. Officers
say they hope to continue making the Bash bette r
each yea r.

   "M issionaries need a lot of e ncouragement be-
cause they've left everything, " said Sigma Tau
Sigma member Shawn Hart, a senior fro m Searcy.
The club has initiated a service project to fill this
need. Together, they write letters to send to mis-
sionaries who are in foreign co untries.
   Before each meeting, those w ho wish to pattici-
pate meet early to write their letters. They obtained
a list of names and addresses from Monte Cox,
H arding's director of missions; club members who
know missio naries have brought names as well. In
fact, the parents of o ne club member are mission-
aries. "\'(1e tell them how much we appreciate
them," Hart said. "Even though we're not able to
be there, we're glad they are and we wish them the
best of luck."
    The project has been very successful, and many
have chosen to be a part of it. Hart, who was
expecting about 15 guys to show up for the first
letter-writing, was surprised when a lmost the w hole
club was there. Sigma Tau Sigma has sem teners to
Africa, Asia and Australia, as well as many other
places. ;(It doesn't take much time, " he sa id, "but at
the same time it's a good effOlt. "

   Every month Sigma Phi Mu members visited
Southern Christian Home in Morrilton, a home
where orphans live in group homes with house
parents. After making friends there , club members
enjoyed returning on a regular basis.
   "The best part is just sitting around talking to the
kids and sharing our pasts," said Darla Knox.
Members wanted the childre n to know they were
not there simply to have fun , but to get to know
them. Melinda Oliver said she liked ( 0 go because,
"I've made frie nds there. I know some ofthem have
been abused in the past and I wa nt to show them
that it doesn't have to be that way. "
    Oliver said her most vivid memory was Christ-
mas last yea r when they wem to each house to
distribute gifts to the children . She especially
enjoyed the surprised look on everyone's faces,
including those of the house parents.
    Sigma Phi Mu members traveled [0 Morrilton
one Saturday each month. They usually played
volleyball or basketball, and sometimes had pic-
nics. Social directo rs organized each trip's activities,
wking into consideratio n that the kids ranged fro m
birth to 18 yea rs of age.
    The club chose this service project because it
was mutually beneficial - it gave the children
special friends and special times to remember, and
it gave members of the club opporruniry to get to
know and to serve those in need.

Holaday, skipper, said, "It's these values and tradi-
tions that make Sub-T 16 such a unified group.
They a re the glue that binds us together."
   At the annua l Homecoming breakfast, Dr. Clifton
L. Ganus,Jr. , a former skipper, spoke to alumni and
current crew members. Ganus spoke of the memo-
ries he shared with his pledge class and how
campus life had changed since he was a student,
with Sub-T 16 being one of the few things that has
remained consistent on the campus.
   Bill Hinkle, a first-year mem ber of Sub-T 16
reacted to Ganus' speech. "It's really mind boggling
to think that the same traditions tha t Dr. Ganus
upheld when he was a student are still around
today.    It's nice   (0   have a constant that you can
always rely on, and Sub-T 16 is tha t constant. "
   Spiritual unity was also a big part of Sub-T 16's
year. Casey Smith, a third-year member, said,
"Devotionals helped me to be able to take a break
from all the pressures of school. It lifts you up to
know that you have more than 60 people o n your
side if you need them. That's what Sub-T 16 is all
about - having a support group that you know you
can always count on when things get you down. "

    Theta Tau Delta social club , under the leadership
 of Johnny Kerr, a senior from Hamilton, Ala.,
 decided, for their serv ice project this yea r, to spend
 a weekend at Camp Tahkodah, cleaning and repair-
 ing th e camp. It was an opportunity for the club
 brothers to serve th ei r comm unity. The weekend
 also gave them a chance to regroup and get to know
 each other better. V ice President Glen Hollis, a
 senior from Minden, La. , o rganized the service
 project. He put the weekend in perspective by
 saying, "We went to Camp Tahkodah to give the
 fellas a chance to get together and have some fun.
 But we were mainly there to get some work done. "
    Unfortunately for Camp Tah kodah, a weekend
 of ra in seemed to conflict w ith the weekend o f
 cleanup. Nevelthe less, the weekend brought the
 club brothers closer together ancl gave them the
 opportunity to serve God by serving others.

approa ch, a service-o rie nted activity.
   Since the ir event was to take place a wee k before
Thanksgiving-break, they decided to provide Than ks-
giving d inner fo r needy fam ilies. Clu b preside nt,
Andy Chunn, and club rnembers Jason Parscaie,
Ben Briscoe, Hoyt Slade and Brad Lawson o rga-
nized the dinner.
   "I tho ug ht it was good th at we incorporated
service into our fall activity; it was something
d iffe re nt; it was just a good thing to d o," Chunn said.
Instead of simply funding the event, Tita ns mem-
bers brought food fo r the Thanksgiving feas t.
Downto w n Church of Christ offered the ir facilities
and asked me mbers to help by donating food.
     Club me mbers bo bbed for apples, e nj oyed each

   "We wanted to do something other than a
hayrid.e," said senior Peter Eptan from Anchorage,
Alaska. That's why TNT me mbers and the ir dates
"adopted " children from Little Rock's River City·
Ministries for a day. About 35 childre n participated
in the outing. The Harding students left Sea rcy at
about noo n and spent the afternoon w ith the
children at the zoo. Afte r returning the childre n to
the ir homes, the members and the ir dates met in a
vacant lot near McCain Mall for a cookout.
    Apparently, the kids loved it. "They were so
grateful fo r the kindness that we showed them,"
said Chris Phillips, a senio r from Ft. Collins, Colo.
"It humbled me and reminded me who I am and
who I'm supposed to be."
    But tile kids were not the only ones who
benefited from the experience. "I think it he lped us
to see what goes on in their homes," commented
Zach Steed , a freshman from Carbondale, III. Phillips
spo ke of what he gained from the children, "Their
genuineness - just being themse lves - was a reward
fo r me . I could see Jesus in them. "
    The "zoofest" was a learning experience fo r
everyone involved. While the children discovered
what it means to be cared for with special attentio n,
the TNT membe rs learned about giving themselves
in service to othe rs.

   Tri-Delta Epsilon social club excitedly planned a
unique Christmas party for several young children.
On a Wednesday night before Christmas, club
members and their dates ventured to the Searcy
housing project to adopt children for the evening.
By first taking the children to church, the group
hoped to "reach children and teach them about
Jesus Christ by being an example and by educating
through devotionals," Tacy Dubach, club activities
director, said.
   The party was one that the children did not soon
forget. After church the children, assisted by their
"adoptive parents" (club members), made hand-
print [-shirrs which they rook home with them.
   The festivities continued into the weekend. On
Friday night, club members took the children to
dinner at Circus Capers in Little Rock where they
played for hours.
   Fun was not the lOp priority, though. A more
important goal for club members was the chance to
"minister to children who otherwise would not hear
about Christ," Dubach said.
   What could have been an ordinary Christmas
party had become much more. Dubach said, "We
did it, not to make ourselves feel better, but for the
children. " As Jesus washed the feet of his disciples,
so had Tri-Delta Epsilon exhibited true service by
bringing young souls closer to Christ.

          A FINALE TO
    When pledge week was finally over, most stu-
dents' thoughts cumed to relaxation and recupera-
tion. But Tri-Kappa social club dedicated the
Saturd ay afte r pledge week to working on a service
project and strengthening club ties.
    The old a nd new me mbe rs of Tri-Kappa gath-
e red at mid-morning at the Associated \Vomen for
Harding (A\'\IH) hOllse. They spe nt the rest of the
day cleaning the wi ndows and blinds and weeding
the flower beds outside of the house. The club
members took care of anythi ng that needed to be
cleaned up - inside or o ut.
    Tri-Kappa lea rned of the need fo r someone to
clean the A\'\1H house from one of their sponsors,
MalY Ann Amen, who is in charge of that particular
aspect of AWH activities.
    Preside nt Kirn Sheets sa id the service project was
a good way to get evelyo ne together after pledge
week, where the new girls were treated as eq uals.
She said, "We chose to do it the Saturday afte r
pledge week so that the o ld and new members
could bond."
    Vice President Kristi Spears agreed that cleaning
the AWH house not only helped to unite the club,
but it served to foc us the members o n service, even
after pledge wee k. "It's really nice to know that
peo ple would give up the ir Saturday, even though
it was right afte r pledge week and most people
don't really have a lot of energy. It just proved that
we could all work well together," she said .

T ara Sma It, a junio r fro m Bullard , T exas, said , "We
wa nted to pick a theme that was unique instead of
just the plain old Christmas theme. The hillbilly
idea m ade it kind of like a countI)' Christmas."
  The party was held at Wyldewood Retreat
Center. Parrygoers went d ressed in ragged clothes,
bare feet, straw hats and blackened teeth. Julie
Ma rcangeli, a junior from McAleste r, Okla., said,
"Dressing in costume allowed us to let loose and
have fu n . It was a mo re comfortable setting,
especially for people with dates. "
  Decorations helped set the scene. Tree trun ks
served as rab ies, and checkers were plentiful.
Activities included a slide show, a th ree-legged
race, a w heelbarrow race, gift giving, rhe pass ing-
the-lifesaver-on-the-toothpick game, kiss and tackle,
and enterta inment by the beaux.
   M ichelle Shaver, a freshman from Va lparaiso,

Christmas. People reall y got into the spirit of it. We
had so much fun dressing as hillbillies and just
goofing off."

was fun ny to see everyone dressed up. We played
a lot of fu n games, and I really e njoyed the slide
show. The beaux' entertainment act was great. I

      In the midst of a frustrating and hectic week,
Zeta Rho and its pledges took time out to make a
difference in the lives of others. With TNT and its
pledg,s, Zeta Rho travelled to Griffithville Church of
Christ to clean, repair and paint the building.
      Members and pledges worked, sweated and·
sang side by side during the hours at the church.
The tasks they completed were as va ried as replac-
ing the bathroom fixtu res and dusting and vacuum-
ing. The efforts were coordinated by several mem-
bers ofTNT and Zeta Rho w ho attend the Griffithville
      The project benefitted both Zeta Rho and the
members of the Griffithville congregation. One
special advantage of the work was that it was
obviously needed. "We really made a difference,"
said Amy Conner, a junior from D enver, Colo. "You
could see how the building had changed from when
we started and when we left."
     But the benefits we re not just physical. Shan-
non Pollard, a freshman from Searcy, said, "We
were just getting used to pledge week, and things
had gotten really tense. It was good to have an
activity that was more laid back. " Conner said , "I got
to wo rk beside my pledge. We had o ne thing in
mind and we were all on the same leveL "
     An effort intended to serve the community
yie lded benefits for members and pledges as well.

   Because of their overt commitment to God, His
work and His people, Diadra McGregor and Tquan
Moore were this year's recipients of the Regina
Spirit Award. Nominated by Regina social club,
they were selected by senior members of the
student body.
   McGregor, a senior dietetics major from Hallsville,
Texas, said, upon receiving the award, "I would
hope I would live up to it. I hope people see this
as something that is actually in my life, and not just
as an award I received. "
   Moore, a senior Bible major from Ft. Walron
Beach , Fla. , expressed his emotions by saying, "The
people who stay up late with their roomrnates, who
visit the elderly in the nursing home - those are the
true servants, but they are never recognized. It's
kind of ironic that, for service done in humility, they
would give you an award ."
   What advice would they give to Harding stu-
d ents' "You can be involved in a lot of things and
receive honors and recognition , but what's really
important is having your relationship wi th God on
track, " McGregor said. Moore advised, "Expect only
w hat God has promised. If anything else comes, be
thankful. But don 't expect any more. "
   In presenting this award , Regina has honored a
pair who so represent the spirit of Christ that they
were even embarrassed to be publicly recognized

   The purpose of the Inte rclub Council (ICC) is to
benefit the entire student body by bringing all the
social clubs together.
   Consisting of all club presidents and vice presi-
dents, the council worked to provide leadership for
the social clubs. Sponsoring deans, Peggy Huckeba
a nd James Anderson, administered the organiza-
tion. "ICC is the governing body for everything that
goes on w ith clubs," Hucke ba said. Controversial
topics were discussed by the stude nts, who then
made recommendations to the deans, who could
often approve rh e recommendation on the spot. If
there was a problem, however, the final decision
was always made by the deans.
   The council worked together to make improve-
ments a nd cha nges for the benefit of all clubs and
the university as a whole. Dawn Spell, GATA club
preside nt, said , "We threw ideas up in the air, had
discussions and de bates abollt them, and tried to
decide on the best possible solution for everyone."
   ICC's Executive Council was made up of three
men and three women. It selved as a communica-
tion link between the ICC and Harding's administra-
tion, and made emergency decisions. Executive
council members voted on inductees and selVed on
a task force during pledge week. Kim Bake r, Chi
Omega Pi's president, sa id , "ICC meetings were a
good way to get to know the concerns of the
administratio n and the opinions of the other clubs."

   Every year, the Petitjean staff recognizes a social
club for seIVice projects w hich best reflect Harding's
goals of Christian hu miliry and servanthood, as
judged by a team of faculry, staff and students. The
Petitjean Service Award for 1993-94 honors Kappa
Sigma Kappa men's social club.
   Kappa Sigma Kappa began their school year
with a project at Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Martin's, an
elderly couple who own a local cattle ranch.
Members cut grass, trimmed hedges, painted and
did other chores tha t the Martins are unable to do.
   About halfway through the fall semester, another
need arose which the club felt they could not
ignore. Eric Jenkins, a freshman who had pledged
their club, had a recurrence of cancer and had to go
to Houston for trea tment of a tumor that was putting
pressure on his brain.
  When Kappa Sigma Kappa learned that Eric's
parents had spe nt almost $200,000 on his medical
treatment, they decided to start raising all the
money they could to put into a "Friends of Eric
Jenkins Foundation." The club rook up a contribu-
tion during Peak of the Week, d id all kinds of yard
work for pay, and purchased a Friday campus
movie and put all the proceeds into the foundation.
   By February, they had raised $7000, and contri-
butions were still coming in. Senior Jerre Glover
said that Eric's battle with cancer brought the club
closer together. "We didn't do this for club recog-
nition; we just wanted to do something for one of
our members."
