Leiter from the editor When you first looked at the preceding page, it probably threw you for a second since there wasnlt any story on the page with the picture. We wanted to come up with something new this year for a student life section so we decided Sf! e 3 on a magazine. The preceding page serves if as a cover of this innovative marvel. Y'all magazine was an idea that orginated in August of 1982 while I was sitting in my office wondering where I was going to eat lunch that day, and the next 17 pages have been dedicated to Y'all. The stories inside this magazine are about some things that Y'all talked about or were involved with almost everyday, some of the little idiosyna crasies that made life at ACU different. We didnt leave out the tradition of student life at ACU, though. TF magazine wouldnt be complete if we didn't talk about the GATA Fou' tain or post office boxes, , And of course, every magazine has a letter from the editor - someoi needed to explain this section because it's not every day you get, magazine like this one. 1 want to thank Cindy Stocking for giving me the idea of doing a cor plete cover to set this section off, and Tammy Fielder for popping off oi day and saying "call it Y'all." I'd also like to thank the staff writers 6 persevering when I gave them what seemed to be insane assignments, at the photographers and artists for helping me develop the display conted But mostly, thanks to the students for suggestions and for making con ments about the topics we asked you about.

Pullen. Thanks to the students who helped with the Plffllffll iso 1 Y'all After the last amen was heard in Chapel, the exodus to the post office boxes began. This dai- ly event was spurred by the thought of having something important - like a check from dad - stored in that metal box you generally shared with a spider and a boxmate. You probably had a special name for your spider, which was uni- que from all the names other students gave their spiders. He was your friend when nothing else was in your box to greet you. You politely pushed your way through hun- dreds of bodies to get to that little hole in the wall that the outside world considered your home. As you- got closer, you thought you saw an envelope, but that last bump knocked you off line with your box so you couldn't be sure. You made your way around the football player talking to three different girls, but that same couple was standing right in front of your box having their daily argument. As you got closer they moved away and then you saw it, an envelope was inside. You rushed to the box but suddenly that 5'2" blue-eyed wonder whose box was right above yours, stepped in front of you to open her mail box. As she reached up she started talking to a friend and stood there opening her eight letters, even though you loudly cleared your throat twice. Finally she moved and now it was your turn. You gazed through the window for a moment to capture that cherished occasion. The spider didn't know what to think of this gala event, while you pondered, "Should I throw a party, or just have an ice cream to celebrate." You hurried to open the box, dialing th numbers quickly, anxiously, and you got ther wrong the first two times. You stopped, took a breath and then dialer again. This time it worked, and you slowl opened the door with anticipation. You paused for a second wondering what i might be. An invitation to something or a lette from mom or sister or . . . The spider looked or worriedly, hoping it wouldn't be an evictioi notice for him. You took hold of the thick envelope ani slowly pulled it out into the light. You turned i over to see who it was "FOR M5 BOXMATEU' You pushed it back in, slammed the doo and tromped off to class leaving the spide wondering if it was something he said. - Charles L. Pallen
