A Kaleidoscope of Activity

Super Saturday heralds the
beginning of summer.
Umbrellas and tanning oil,
jogging shorts and climbing
gear, passports and farming
manuals, folk tales and graduate studies are all pieces of
the pattern that's become
summer '81 at Evergreen.
Though the new quarter
got off to a damp start—setting new June records for rainfall in Geoduck country—
more than 700 students returned to the hallowed halls
of academia for a summer filled with five- and ten-weeklong course offerings and
supplemented with more than
60 Leisure Education workshops providing opportunites
to try everythings from scaling some two dozen peaks in
the coastal mountain ranges
to beginning swimming and
instruction in the art of being
a clown.
While students hit the
books—and often the waters
of the campus pool or Puget
Sound—hundreds of visitors
began arriving to participate
in a record number of conferences and conventions,
ranging from football camps
for high school athletes to
weight-loss programs for
teenagers, institutes for college and university teachers
to seminars for student newspaper and yearbook editors.
Teenagers have also come
to campus to attend the second year of the Bridges Program, designed to offer them
a chance to master the basic
concepts of environmental
studies while living and
studying in the Olympic National Park, and the Upward

Bound Program, which helps
prepare sophomores, juniors
and seniors for post-highschool educational experiences.
The little folks have their
niche on campus this summer, too, in the Driftwood
Day Care Center that provides
an educational program daily
for youngsters three to six
years old while their parents
work or attend classes.
Graduate Work in MPA
For the first time in Evergreen's history, graduate-level
courses are being taught as
part of the masters degree
program in public administration. MPA students have selected from among studies
in policy administration, organizational communication
and citizen participation,
community involvement and
public relations.
Undergraduates face a
full slate of basic studies—
ranging from principles of
economics to calculus, from
environmental history and
philosophy to clayworks,
photography, botany, environmental design, music, and
women's literature.
Those who might have
hoped for a somewhat lighter
academic load during the inviting days of summer were
forewarned by at least one
faculty member, Dr. David
Powell. In his outline of a tenweek fiction workshop, the
literature professor said students will be required to participate in lectures, critiques
and readings. Standard fare
for most classes. But, he
went on to emphasize: "an

unadjustable, unnegotiable
minimum of 20 typed pages
of second draft fiction per
week will be required." So
much for plans to devote
afternoons to sun bathing!
Not all those earning academic credit this smmer can
be found seated at a seminar
table. One group of students,
led by faculty art historian
Dr. Gordon Beck, is traveling
in western Europe, focusing
their studies on the art and
culture of Greece and Italy.
A Russian studies team,
headed by Dr. Andrew Hanfman, is exploring the USSR,
devoting three weeks to
Moscow and Leningrad and
another week to travel
through out the country,
climazing a full year's academic preparation on campus.
Still other students are
mastering the geology of the
Pacific Northwest, preparing
for a three-week field trip, led
by faculty geologist Dr. Jim
Stroh, into the mountains of
Washington, Oregon, Idaho
and "perhaps western Montana."
And yet another student
team, directed by faculty anthropologist Lynn Patterson,
is scouring the hills and
dales of southwest Washington, gathering stories,
dreams, poetry, photographs
and even jokes generated by
the recent eruptions of Mount
Saint Helens. Students in
the five-week academic program, based in Vancouver,
Washington, hope to publish
the results of their work as
an historic contribution to
the folklore of the region
which was buried under tons
of ash and mud in May, 1980.

Nutritious Results as Well
The results of another academic program's work will
be eaten long before this
ReView is recycled. Greeners
studying small scale agriculture under the tutelage of faculty members Dr. Jeff Kelly
and Dr. Greg Steuwe-Portnoff
have spent most of the summer with their hands in the
dirt—mastering the art of organic gardening and other
homestead-related skills at
the college's eight-acre farm.
When they're not planting and
weeding, the industrious soil
tillers are studying the role of
altenative agriculture in modern society, changing attitudes toward alternative and
traditional agriculture, and
materials on human nutrition.
Not all work done on
campus this summer generates academic credit. Some
of it's for the sheer joy of accepting and meeting new
challenges. The college's
Leisure Education program
has sponsored 23 sports
workshops providing instruction ranging from racquetball
to sport parachuting, tennis
to golf, wilderness backpacking to climbing dormant volcanoes, gymnastics to whitewater rafting.
For the slightly less adventurous, instruction is also
available in belly dancing,
hat ha yoga and relaxation,
aerobics, ballet and an array
of art workshops including
calligraphy, pottery, photography, silkscreen, papermaking, painting, weaving and
drawing. Martial arts sessions also are open for children and adults, as well as

instruction in juggling, Swedish massage, meditation, and
bicyle repair, touring and
For many, the visit to
campus is just one of their
summer stops. For those attending conferences, they
may stay as long as three
weeks for an accredited workshop in Aerospace Education, as briefly as three days
for a public school administrators' retreat, or just one
day—like 75 youngsters a
day participating in YMCA
camps on campus. They've
had a chance to take full
advantage of recreational
facilities and ample opportunities to explore the college's 1000 acres, which still
provide homes for deer,
raccoons, birds and a full
cast of nature's furry critters.
Countless others just
happen to stop by the college
in the summer, perhaps
drawn by simple highway
signs that say "The Evergreen
State College," then point
straight into the woods.
They're welcomed by a campus that immediately reflects
a slower, less hectic pace—
one that encourages pauses
to play a quick game of
volleyball on the central
plaza, enjoy a leisurely stroll
through the woods to the
3,000 feet of beach front
along Eld Inlet, or sit beneath
the shade of towering Evergreen trees and submerge
mind and soul into that longawaited "good book." For
these activities, too, have all
become pieces of the colorful
pattern of summer '81 at

Evans Chairs
Ingram Named Emeritus Faculty
Power Council
Evergreen President Dan
Evans has been unanimously
elected to chair the new
eight-member Pacific Northwest Electric Power and
Conservation Planning
Council. The four-state body,
comprised of delegations
from Oregon, Idaho, Montana
and Washington, has been
given two years by the U.S.
Congress to determine how
to meet the future power
needs of the Northwest.
Evans named to the
council by Governor John
Spell man, says the body has
authority to plan for regional
electrical needs, oversee the
Bonneville Power Administration and implement the
Northwest Power Bill. Its
members must strive "to be
independent of everyone"—
the BPA, the utilities and the
environmental groups—yet
listen to all sides of the complex issues before them.
He accepted appointment
to the board on a part-time
basis and will continue as
Evergreen's president.

Grant Announced for Writing Consortium
The National Endowment for
the Humanities has announced the award of a
$380,000 grant to the sixschool Pacific Northwest
Writing Consortium for a
faculty development program
called "Writing Across the
Curriculum." The grant,
which awards Evergreen
approximately $50,000 over
the next three years, was
developed by faculty from
Lewis and Clark College in
Portland, the Universities of
Oregon and Washington,
Pacific Lutheran University,
the University of Puget
Sound and Evergreen.
Its purpose, according to
Academic Dean Dr. Barbara
Smith, is to "develop and

support faculty who teach
writing throughout the curriculum in the context of
disciplinary and interdisciplinary education."
As the ReView went to
press, funding for the proposal had been frozen, along
with all other NEH monies,
pending final approval by
Congress of that organization's budget. The project,
Dr. Smith has been assured,
"is listed under Category A,
as a first-priority item when
and if NEH's budget is
If funding is granted,
Smith said it will enable four
Evergreen faculty and four
high school teachers to
attend the Summer Institute
for College Teachers on

campus this month. It also
will support two months of
faculty work this summer to
develop writing units.
Next year the grant will
provide funding for an Evergreen faculty member to
serve as a Danforth Visiting
Fellow working in writing; it
will support exchange visits
among three Evergreen and
three high school teachers;
and it will fund an additional
month's work developing
writing units by two Evergreen faculty members. The
third year of the grant,
1983-84, it will fund courses
in writing in two western
Washington high schools
and a third summer session
for Evergreen faculty to develop additional writing units.

Filmmaker, Actress to Launch New Program
Filmmaker Bruce Baillie and
veteran Broadway actress
Dale Soules will visit Evergreen next year to launch a
newly established Artist-inResidence program which
will give students a chance
to work with a variety of professionals for a full quarter
The new Artist-inResidence program, announced by Academic Dean
Dr. Barbara Smith, begins in
September when Baillie, who
founded the independent
filmmakers' cooperative Canyon Cinema in 1961, will
teach a full-time academic
program for 20 film students.
Baillie, 49, earned a bachelors
degree from the University of
Minnesota in 1955, studied at
the London School of Film
Technique 1959-60, and
received an MFA from the
San Francisco Art Institute in
1971. He has taught at the
Mendocino Art Center in
California, at Rice University
in Texas, and was artist-inresidence at Bard College in
New York from 1974 to 1977.
He has had print purchases, showings and lectures at major museums in
New York City, Montreal,
Tokyo and Stockholm, and

has received Guggenheim,
American Film Institute and
Rockefeller Foundation fellowships. He's also won the
San Francisco International
Film Festival Golden Gate
Award, the Ann Arbor Grand
Prize and the Moholy-Nagy
Baillie's Fall Quarter
filmmaking program will be
open to students who have
taken the Evergreen program
"Recording and Structuring
Light and Sound" or its
equivalent. Currently living in
Elizaville, New York, he will
arrive on campus before fall
registration to review portfolios and interview students.
Those who wish to be considered for the program
should contact the Registrar.
Visiting artist for Winter
Quarter will be Dale Soules,
an actress with extensive
theatre experience, including
Broadway productions of
Hair and The Magic Show,
At the age of 14, she was
working as a technician in
New York's off-Broadway
theaters, in addition to studying acting at the H.B. Studio.
She has worked as a sound
technician, property mistress,
assistant director and stage
manager, and has had roles
in dozens of stage and film

productions. She co-starred
as Cal, the magician's assistant, in the four-year Broadway run of The Magic Show,
and subsequently appeared
in off-Broadway productions
of New Jerusalem, Getting
Out, and The Family.
Soules has had roles in
several New York Shakespeare Festival and Manhattan
Theater Club productions,
and has appreared on the
Today Show with Barbara
Walters, the Mike Douglas
Show, the Dick Cavett Show,
and many others. She also
played the title role and
served as associate producer
for the award-winning film
The Bag Lady.
Students in Soules' Winter Quarter program will
receive an intensive introduction to professional theater
and will create an original
theater piece to be performed
at the close of the quarter.
Students who have completed
"Foundations of Performing
Arts" or its equivalent may
preregister for the program,
but retention is dependent on
an interview with Soules
during the January 3 academic Fair. The program is
expected to fill up quickly.

The 1980-81 academic year
started off with a burst of
good news—the highest enrollment in Evergreen's
history. From September
through June, so many
things happened so quickly,
we thought ReView readers
might enjoy a quick recap:
Evergreen's fall 1980 enrollment of 2536 full-time equivalent students is highest in
ten-year history. The college's 13.6% gain in FTE
above the previous fall was
the highest gain among the
state's six public four-year
Ninety-three percent of
Evergreen's graduates who
have reported to the Office of
Career Planning and Placement have been successfully
placed in jobs, graduate
schools or other situations of
their choice. The statistics,
which cover the first eight
graduating classes, show a
total of 2,605 alums reporting ; of those 2,416 have
secured placement. Sixtyeight percent are employed,
19% are in graduate schools,
7% are seeking employment,
and 6% are traveling, homemaking or involved in other

Thousands Drawn to Campus for Super Saturday and Graduation Weekend


Evergreen celebrated the conclusion of its tenth academic
year and the graduation of
more than 600 students in
June with the help of thousands of visitors from
throughout the state and
probably the nation.
Drawn to campus by
invitations to the third annual
Super Saturday celebration,
the college's "almost annual"
Rowdy (masquerade) Ball and
the tenth commencement
ceremony, an estimated
twelve to fifteen thousand
persons explored Geoduck
country undaunted by frequent showers and at times
jam-packed parking lots.
The annual weekend celebration got off to an early
start as Super Saturday
dawned on June 6. Artists
and food vendors began
arriving on campus before
7 a.m. to set up their shops
and participate in what has

become the area's largest
arts and crafts fair. Long
before the official opening
hour of 11 a.m., guests had
begun pouring in from the
parking lots, sampling a
varied menu of exotic foods
prepared by two dozen local
chefs, and viewing art works
by more than 60 craftsworkers from throughout the
southern Puget Sound area.
The skirling of bagpipes
played by the Olympia Highlanders marching band
launched the day's entertainment, which featured more
than 40 separate performing
groups on three stages.
While dancers, martial artists,
singers and modern fencing
experts kept a "demonstration" stage A busy, larger
f musical
including the
Red Kelly/
Don Chan

Roadhouse Jazz Ensemble,
the Fort Steilacoom Community College Stage Band,
and colorfully authentic
troupes of Polynesian and
Filipino performers from
Seattle—kept the main stage
and central campus plaza
buzzing. High steppers from
Tumwater High School
marched throughout the
campus, weaving their way
through the crowds and up
the four-story-high clock
tower steps to become the
first musical troupe to perform on campus at that
As the tantalizing scent
of barbequed chicken (prepared by a stalwart crew of
Evergreen alums) and Kalua
pig (roasted underground by
Hawaiian gourmets) drifted
through campus, adults
moved on to the third stagefull of entertainment in the
Beer Garden, hidden away on

the third floor patio of the
College Activities Building
and amply supplied with
fermented sparkling waters.
While they tapped their feet
to the tunes of jazz, bluegrass, country and folk
songs, Beer Gardeners gained
an eagle's eye view of a
daring quartet of skydivers
from the Toledo Parachute
Center who leaped out over
the baseball diamond in the
midst of a grudge match between the Daily Olympian bat
busters and KGY radio's
mighty mikes. The electronic
media men and women
blasted their way to an 11 to
10 victory with a smashing
home run in the final inning
which has yet to be reported
on the sports pages of the
capital city's only daily
Across campus youngsters were treated to a series
of four special "unbirthday

parties," a tent filled with
face-painting artists, a slate
of games, free horseback
rides, balloons and cartoons,
a chance to meet a collection
of costumed critters, including Winnie the Pooh and the
Cat in the Hat, and their own
special children's parade.
Athletes also had their
chance to shine on Super
Saturday. More than three
dozen competitors ran in a
2.6-mile road race, while 60
wheel-rid ing racers maneuvered through the heart-stopping skateboard ramp competition, employees from Pacific Northwest Bell hosted
their first frisbee golf tournament, and rappellers soared
and danced (or, in some instances, crept) down the
clock tower amidst applause
and sometimes startled gasps.
Enriching the day's events
were academic
displays, a

palmists and Evergreen's resident dream analyst, Dr.

New to the Super Saturday celebration this year were
two brief but special ceremonies: presentation of the
first Super Saturday Citizens
of the Year Award to Hanna
•and Jess Spielholz of Olympia (see details in accomPcinying story), and drawing
of a raffle ticket for a roundtrip helicopter ride over the
state's most active volcano,
Mt. Saint Helens. The win-

ning ticket, drawn Saturday
afternoon, belonged to Herb
Gel man, facoma member of
the college's board of trustees
He promptly auctioned off
his prize for $50 and donated
the money to the Evergreen
Foundation Scholarship
Fund, which also received all
proceeds from the raffle contest.
By day's end, the campus had welcomed more than
10,000 guests, the security
force had directed traffic
around lots that couldn't hold
even one more vehicle, and
the 20-member Super Saturday Committee had collapsed, like their information
tent, into a satisfied heap.
But calm was not to remain in the heart of the
mighty bivalves. For Sunday
brought graduation and a celebration that drew an estimated 350 seniors, including

dozens of them clad in caps
and gowns, and hundreds of
parents and friends.
Guest speaker Jolene
Unsoeld, a widely respected
citizen political activist in
Washington and widow of
Evergreen's popular mountain
climbing philosopher, Dr.
Willi Unsoeld, gained a standing ovation for her hard-hitting address, aimed at helping prepare seniors for "the
agony and the ecstacy" of life
after Evergreen.
"You aren't going to walk
out of here and live happily
ever after," Unsoeld told the
Class of 1981. "Tomorrow
will bring with it disappointments, sorrow and pain to
mix with the hard work and
job this life contains."
"But," she asserted, "this
tattered old world needs more
than ever. . .legions of young
people to carry the banner.

"Now more than ever we
need young people with vision, with a sense of hope...
"Young people with rational and clear thinking . . .
'•'And the ability to listen
to the truth that underlies
people's anguish, anger and
"It begins," she said,
"with the 4,260 Evergreeners
that have gone before you. It
begins with the 604 of you,"
she declared, urging them to:
"Believe in your strength.
Believe in your youth. Believe
in this world's need for you.
"Learn to repeat endlessly to yourself 'It all depends on me. It all depends
on us.'
"Make the most of yourself in this struggle. That's
all there is of you.
"Bring on those giants,"
she concluded. "You can
handle them."

Sharing the podium with
Unsoeld were graduating
seniors Elizabeth Springer, a
Seattlelite who at 66 was
among this year's oldest
graduates; Edna Harper, a
36-year old mother of five
who has worked on Evergreen's staff for the past six
years while attending classes;
and Lyn Malofsky, a 22-yearold senior from Madison,
Wisconsin, plus Alumni Association President Joe Dear,
Evergreen President Dan
Evans, and faculty anthropologist Dr. Mark Papworth.
The ceremony—and commencement weekend—concluded with what's become
an Evergreen tradtion—formation of a human ring comprised of graduating seniors
and faculty members, joined
hand in hand, circling parents and friends and sharing
one final moment of celebration.

Hanna & Jess: Super Saturday Citizens of the Year
Jess and Hanna Spielholz
have been active in Evergreen
since before its doors opened
nearly ten years ago. The
dynamic Cooper Point couple
—and their countless contributions to Evergreen—were
honored this June when the
two became the college's
first Super Saturday Citizens
of the Year.
Forced to move to Olympia "under duress" in 1962
when the courts ordered state
employees to relocate from
Seattle to the state capital,
Hanna and Jess sorely
missed the environment of
their University of Washington neighborhood. They
immediately endorsed the
idea of opening a new state
college in Olympia and were
among the first supporters
who gathered in the fall of
1970 to create the Evergreen
College Community Organi-

zation (ECCO), a group dedicated to building bridges of
understanding between the
new school and its hometown.
"We felt Olympia needed
the enrichment that hosting
a college would give it,"
recalls Hanna. "But we
sensed considerable community antagonism toward
the idea and wanted to share
with others our excitement
about it."
Both were already heavily
involved in the Olympia community: Hanna with the
Women's Club, the League of
Women Voters and the State
Capitol Museum; Jess with
his work as a physician for
the State Department of
Social and Health Services
and his volunteer efforts for
the Council on Aging, the
American Cancer Society, the
Fred Hutcheson Cancer
Research Center, and the

state Diabetes and Arthritis
Associations. But those
activities didn't stop them
from contributing hours to
aid the new college.
Since they first joined
ECCO, Jess has twice served
on the college faculty, Hanna
has taken six classes, both
have participated in countless
seminars as what Jess
jokingly calls "token old
people," and they've helped
ECCO host receptions and
gourmet dinners, guide tours,
stage lecture programs, conduct play reading groups,
and in every conceivable way
open lines of communication
between the college and its
"We've found it all stimulating and brain stretching,"
says Hanna, who spent much
of the past year burning the
lamplights late every night to
meet the demands of her full-

time academic program, "The
Human Condition—Our Neolithic Roots," while Jess has
served as president of both
Morningside (a developmental
center and workshop for
handicapped adults) and the
Thurston County Senior
Center, chaired the Area
Agency on Aging Advisory
Board and continued to serve
as a committee member for
several other organizations.
When the two have a
chance to get together, it's
often at Evergreen, where
both attend ECCO meetings
and campus events in addition to their more academic
roles. The campus, the two
agree, "has filled a very
special need in our lives.
"I believe there's a symbiotic need for relationships
to develop between young
and old," Jess explains.
"What stands out in our

minds is the continuing relationship we've had with
students. We've never felt the
age differential, and students
and faculty have become
friends who have enriched
our lives with their openness
and warmth."
Their fellow students, • .
and members of the Super
Saturday awards committee
concur that the Spielholz duo
has greatly enriched Evergreen, providing examples of
how best to perform the roles
of "aware citizens" about
which the college's founding
faculty and deans so frequently spoke.
Their role as models to
'faculty, students and friends
of the campus will long be
valued as highly as their
more quantifiable contributions. And, their award will
become an annual part of the
Super Saturday tradition.

Evergreen Musical Show Touring Rural Communities
A three-member Evergreen
faculty-staff team has hit the
road this summer, taking
with them a two-day presentation on "America's Music
in Cultural Perspective."
The team, headed by
faculty members Dr. Tom
Foote and Dr. Charles Teske
and assisted by recent graduate Marilynn Carlton, is
taking to nine rural southwest
Washington communities a
production that offers a
slide/tape show illustrating

aspects of America's rich
musical heritage, lectures
developed during the past
academic year as part of the
America's Music academic
program, and discussion
sessions designed to involve
participants in identifying
and appreciating that which
is distinctly American music.
The program opened July
July 1 in Morton and has
been scheduled in Raymond,
Quilcene, Shelton, Pacific
Beach, Ocean Beach, Pack-

wood, Lake Quinault and
Castle Rock.
At each stop, the Evergreen trio is taking participants through a four-step
review of American history,
literature and music, beginning with the introduction of
white settlers to this continent, the influence of
African traditions in the
United States, and an examination of American classical
or "high-art" music. The sessions conclude with discus-

sions to examine the views
held by persons from other
nations and cultures of'
American musical traditions.
The summer-long program has been funded by the
Washington Commission for
the Humanities through a
$8,891 grant designed in part
to "provide an informative
and exciting cultural experience for those who do not
have the benefit of reasonable proximity to a four-year
college or university."

Clambackers Meet Challenge

Trustee and athletics booster Robert Flowers hands over former trustee Hal
Halvorson's $4.000 challenge check to athletics director Jan Lambertz.

Last December former trustee
Hal Halvorson of Spokane
presented Evergreen with a
special challenge: if the college could raise $4,000 for
athletics, he would contribute
another $4,000. The deadline: June 30.
"We knew we'd really
have to work hard, but we
accepted—and met—the
challenge with enthusiasm,"
says Jan Lambertz, Evergreen's new director of
athletics. "Over the past few
months we've received an
anonymous gift from a local
corporation and many contributions from local athletics
boosters and we've also had
a couple of successful fund
raisers, such as the May 9
Run for Your Mom."
Evergreen's athletics program, launched in the fall of
1979, now boasts men's and
women's teams in soccer,

swimming, cross-country
running and tennis. Sailing
and club-level crew are
scheduled to be phased in
during 1981-82.
"None of our present
sports are big revenueproducers," explains Lambertz. "And, we're not at the
point yet where we have large
crowds of spectators. We're
still working on becoming
more visible."
During the past legislative session, Evergreen received capital funding to
complete its soccer fields
and plan a new gymnasium
complex. These additional
facilities will help enhance
Evergreen's total recreation
and athletics program.
Adds Lambertz: "We're
doing athletics the Evergreen
way and we're especially
grateful to trustee Halvorson
for making it possible."
