Cover Story, "MSU's Pouncer"
MSU's Pouncer, assisted by Kristen Murdock, 4, La Petite Miss America for 1988-89, entertained the crowd during the Homecoming football game against Mississippi State. The daughter of Michael Murdock '74 (MSU golf team member and Tennessee State Open Golf Champion '72) and Nancy Murdock (MSU Golden Girl '71-'74), Kristen captured six national contest crowns during the summer of 1988.
Also featured, "'Glasnost' Opens Doors Between MSU, Russian People"
For Jennie Springer '59 BA/'60 MA, "glasnost" is not just a word on TV or in a newspaper about Russia's new policy of openness with other countries. She is one of a number of MSU alumni, faculty and staff now able to tour Russia and exchange visits with the people—opportunities almost unheard of before restructuring began in that country in 1987.
