Administrators at Louisiana
College have halted. sales of a
fundraising calendar featuring
campus students in bathing suits,
fearing it was giving the Baptist
school a "playboy" image.
Aimed at raising money for
the college's chorus, the "Men of
Louisiana College" calendar,
which „even campus President
Robert L. Lynn characterized as
"about as scintillating as a Sears
catalog," was tame enough that
the local Alexandria Daily Town
Talk published a photo from it.
However the photo, which
was of a male student in a hot
tub with two female classmates,
"I thought it was in very poor
taste for a Christian college," said
Rev. Charles Hutzler, pastor of
the Alpine Baptist Church. "I
was outraged. It makes us look
like we're liberal or something."
Lynn decided to halt sales of
the calendar after others advised
him it could give the 800-student
college, which is supported by
the Lousiana Baptist Convention,
a playboy image.
Such images can be
troublesome at schools funded by
the Southern Baptist Convention.
After Playboy magazine
determined that Mercer
University, a Baptist campus,
was among the top "party
schools" in the nation in 1987,

literalists in the Georgia Baptist
Convention mounted an

Calendars have caused troubles
at other campuses, but usually
for different reasons.
Penn State University , for
example, banned a "Women of
Lion Country" calendar from its
bookstore after students objected
it was offensive to women.
Calendars featuring photos of
nude of semi-nude classmates
provoked angry protests at the
universities of Illinois and Texas-
Austin, respectively, during the
1987-88 school year, but they
stayed on sale.
More recently, Ohio State
officials yanked a similarly racy
"Men of the Scarlet and Gray"
from its campus stores because it
used OSU's logos, emblems and
trademarks without permission.
Only 23 Louisiana College
calendars were sold when Lynn
banned them, but students seemed
to agree with their president's
view of its modesty.
Kandy Key, one of the women
in the hot tub picture, said her
mother and members of her
church teased her about the
photo, "but basically they didn't
see anything wrong with it."
