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
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. Enjoy it! CP.S. The cutie
the picture with me is my niece, Nikkij

Thanks to the students who helped with the
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
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
You pushed it back in, slammed the doo
and tromped off to class leaving the spide
wondering if it was something he said. -
