Mind Reader to Visit
James Mapes, a master of hypnosis,
will appear March 14 in Moore Audi
ESP, hypnosis, and mental prowess
help set the stage for an unusual
evening of entertainment on Monday,
March 14 at 8pm in Moore Auditor
ium. James J. Mapes, actor, hypno
tist, and psychic will present his
Power of the Mind program at that
time and the experience will prove to
be a unique one for all those who at
Born in 1946 to farming parents of
Zion, Illinois, Mapes first exercised
his mental powers by forecasting
the death of his grandmother when he
was seven. Later he began exploring
his mental ability by anticipating and
later consciously predicting events to
come. He also found that he could
tell when people were lying to him.
He was exposed to a hypnotist dur
ing college days who helped him lose
close to 100 pounds and stop smoking
three packs of cigarettes a day. “Any
thing that’s that powerful, I’ve got to
know about,” he states. After college,
Mapes pursued an acting career. He
has been successful in landing roles in
television’s Star Trek, Mod Squad,
and Mission Impossible, as well as in
films, such as Taxi Driver, Three Days
of the Condor, Sisters, and The Taking
of Pelham 1-2-3.
In time, however, he brought to
gether his unique mental prowess with
his flair for the stage to develop Power
of the Mind, a show combining both
extrasensory perception and hypnosis.
In addition, his show utilizes audience
participation which always proves
Along with traveling around the
country with his show, Mapes has his
own hypnotherapy clinic in New York
City. In that capacity, he has worked
with members of the medical, psychia
tric, and law enforcement profes
sions. In the remaining time he has,
he still appears in acting roles, medi
tates faithfully, and has authored two
books on the power of the mind.
So, if you are looking for an inter
esting as well as informative evening,
catch Mapes’ Power of the Mind pro
gram. Admission is free to all students.

Knickerbocker Fuses Study, Travel
“You look terrible today. Why don’t
you go back to bed?” When confront
ed with this statement, Donna Knicker
bocker was, needless to say, taken a-
back. The unabashed honesty of this
comment is characteristic of Spaniards,
(who often reveal every family scandal
after having only known someone for
ten minutes!), and Ms. Knickerbocker
gradually became accustomed to this
quality throughout her stay in Spain.
A senior Spanish major at Mars Hill,
Ms. Knickerbocker studied during 1975-
76 at the Normal School of the Uni
versity of Seville. Since the most re
spectable job for a Spanish woman
is to accomodate boarders, she had no
trouble finding a place to live while
she was in Spain. The experience of
living with two of these boarding fami
lies enabled Ms. Knickerbocker to learn
much about Spanish culture. Further
more, the vacation breaks of the Uni
versity afforded her the opportunity
to travel.
In October, Ms. Knickerbocker set
out on a short excursion to the Span
ish-owned island of Mallorca in the
Mediterranean. At the end of the se
mester she and three other girls trav
eled by Eurailpass and hitchhiking to
Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Germany,
and France. Christmas found the
girls in the small Swiss village of Zer
matt at the base of the Matterhorn.
Ms. Knickerbocker described Zermatt
as “beautiful”, adding: “They allow
ed no cars there; the people skied or
sledded through the village.” Ms.
Knickerbocker and her traveling com
panions found the drivers who gave
them rides, about half of whom could
speak English, were  “extremely
nice.” “They would take us out to lunch,
buy us Cokes, and go an hour out of
their way just to get us where we were
going.” Ms. Knickerbocker discloses
that they had only one “semi-bad”
experience with a “very Italian” old
man. Dispite this incident, her visits
to Venice, Florence, and Rome con
vinced Ms. Knickerbocker that Italy
was her favorite country. When the
girls returned to Spain in January, Ms.
Donna Knickerbocker recounts some
of her experiences in traveling through
Spain and other parts of Europe. (Photo

Knickerbocker embarked on a tour of
the country on her own.
Another University vacation came
along in April, this time for three weeks.
Ms. Knickerbocker explains that the
first week of vacation was taken to
celebrate Holy Week and the last con
sisted of a city fair which included fla
menco dancing and drinking. The
second week was officially scheduled
for classes, but due to the festive spirit
the professors simply did not hold
them. Nevertheless, Ms. Knickerbock
er and her friends took this opportuni
ty to do some more traveling. This
time they hitched to the Strait of Gi
braltar and crossed the strait to Ceuta,
Morocco, the only town on the African
peninsula that is owned by Spain.
Randomly choosing a town off the map,
they took a bus to Larache. They found
that people didn’t go out on th'e streets
and activity didn’t begin until about
ten o’clock in the morning. The Moroc
cans were very quiet, speaking their
Arabic language almost in a whisper,
and wore long, dark-colored, hooded
robes. Whereas rooms in Spain and
Italy were usually rented for $2.50, a
room in Morocco could be acquired
for only $1.00. However, the conditions
of the room were quite a shock to Ms.
Knickerbocker: not only were the
rooms supplied with a bare minimum
of furniture, but the bath, (which serv
ed all ten bedrooms on the hall), con
sisted of a spigot in the wall and a
concrete floor having a lowered, tiled
area in whose center was a hole in
front of which were cast two grooved
Following the Moroccan visit, it
was back to the University of Seville
until June, when Ms. Knickerbocker
finished her studies there and headed
for Switzerland, where she was soon
to be engaged in study of quite a dif
ferent nature. L’Abri, a Christian com
munity established by Francis Shaef-
fer, was Ms. Knickerbocker’s destina
tion. At L’Abri, she worked half a day,
as did all other students, cleaning,
cooking, and sewing to aid in the gen
eral up-keep of the chalet where she
lived and spent the other half of the
day in classes.
