It was homecoming weekend, the
air was filled with pride and an
ticipation as the big game was about
to begin. No team wants to lose
their homecoming game but the
odds weren’t too favorable that the
Lions would pull this one out. In
juries plagued the team and Mother
Nature was not being very
cooperative. The sun was hiding
behind dark clouds, but the rain
held off for the parade to end. That
brings up an old cleche’, “It didn’t
rain on our parade.’’ As the time
approached for the big kick off, the
rain began to fall. The fans were all
sporting large umberellas so the rain
wouldn’t drown their hopes for a
victory on that special weekend.
There was a group of dedicated
fans that don’t have the opportunity
to stay dry under umberellas or even
hide under the press box. This
special group is known as the Mars
Hill Cheerleaders! Even though the
sun wasn’t shining, the spirit and
pride of these folks was enough to
get the fans pepped up and kept
i] their minds off of the down pour. It
seems to me that these spirited fans
do not get the recognition that is
deserved. The rains continued to fall
throughout the game but it didn’t
“damper” the excitement of these
ten high-voltage, proud and
energetic students as they kept the
fans involved and even sometimes
they had to pick up the team spirit
and get them going on the bench.
What would a football game be
like without cheerleaders? Does the
fate of the team depend on the spirit
of the fans? Does the excitment of
the fans depend on the spirit of the
cheerleaders? All of these questions
have rolled around in my mind since
that wet game in which the Lions
came out victorious. The team
stayed up and played a super game
both offensive and defensive.
However, without the dedication of
the cheerleaders, would the high
level of excitment have been there to
carry the team through the low
times of the game?
Of course, each person must form
their own opinion of where the spirit
comes from, but as for me, I see this
group as being the true Pride of the

produced at Mars Hill College on Thurs
day, November 13, by the National
The play won a Tony for “Best Play
of the Year” and won several subse
quent awards as a movie. Shaffer’s
script sets up a classic confrontation bet
ween genius and mediocrity. Supported
by circumstantial evidence plus specula
tion, the tale has breathtaking power
along with comic relief to sustain the
emotional and dramatic power.
The most prominent touring company

pany has given approximately 5,000 per
formances of plays by Shakespeare,
Shaw, Sophocles, Stoppard and other
recognized playwrights. The company is
composed of 14 to 16 members, each of
whom has several responsibilhies. For
each production elaborate sets are
erected, lighting set, sound equipment
tested, all before the costumes are donn
ed and make-up applied. After the play,
the process is reversed.
"Armadeus” is sponsored at Mars
Hill by the school’s Visiting Artists and
Lecturers Committee and is part of the
“Culturefest” series. The play will be
