A-11-6: Yours, mine or ours When you were assigned your Chapel seat luring fall registration you might have been eminded that Chapel attendance was required. ut you weren't told that four other people ight be assigned to that same seat. You also weren't told that you might already rave been assigned two Chapel seats or that the Chapel seat you were assigned might get erased mr might not be accepted by the computer. Sound confusing? It was! If you were so lucky as to be assigned more han one Chapel seat, you had the option of where you wanted to sit. However, the other :eatfsj you had, that were unoccupied, counted IS absences. So, even though you went every day you still ended up with a Chapel notice. To be assigned the same seat as somebody else proved upsetting for some and a joy for Louis Grlgsby pulls his laundry from dryer. others. A senior was upset to find a freshman football player already in his seat talking to his girlfriend next door. It was a joy for those who thought they had other things to do and wanted to leave well enough alone. Other students who had been assigned only one seat were disappointed to find their seats in the nose-bleed section. Some newly married students reserved a seat for their beloved, but their spouse ended up on the other side of the Coliseum. A very tryin experience indeed. And even if you had only one Chapel seat and even if you went to Chapel every day, got there 10 minutes early and listened attentively, you always got a Chapel notice. What happened? Dean Winnie Gibbs said. that this was the first year for a computer to be used to help assign Chapel seating . . . oh, that explains it. Somehow more than 300 students had numerous seats, no seat or were separated from friends or family. Dean Gibbs explained that the problem arose when students saved seats for friends and then forget to tell the friends. Since each stu- dent could save one seat, different people at dif- ferent times saved a seat for the same person not knowing of the other saved seats. Chapel seating always had been a little con- fusing, but we should have known we would be in trouble when the computer age caught up with the seating process. But then why all the fuss anyway. By mid- semester many students skipped Chapel as often as they went, and by the end of the semester there seemed to be just enough people there to fill a large class room. Such irony - what was it about Chapel seats that made everyone want one bad enough to end up not going anyway. - Kristy Pendergrnrr and Charles L. Pullen Those washda y blues... yellows... reds Laundry. just the mention of the word caused many students to cringe. But, as we all found out, laundry was inevitable. The mound of clothes always seemed to reach the rim on the prettiest day of the week. So then you had to spend the best' part of the day waiting for your IZODS to finish their bub- ble baths. Freshmen soon realized why mom never included laundry on the list of "the joys of being on your own." After doing your laundry a couple of times, you began to wonder why the home economics department never offered Laundry 1101. just trying to figure out which dial did what on the washer took a good deal of experience. Saturday was the day to avoid doing laundry. The laundromat looked more like a national convention of cattle herders than a place to wash clothes. In that unavoidable chaos, you were bound to run into someone you wanted to impress, but it was the wrong place. After waiting forever you finally saw an opening and moved for that one empty washer at the same time that cute girl from English class did. She didn't remember you, but you let her use it anyway. Men on campus who were inexperienced in the art of laundry, carried mom's instruction guide next to their hearts. Some girls were sym- pathetic and helped a bewildered beau. But most girls decided it was everyone for himself, and if some guy didn't know better than to mix blue jeans and whites, then he could wear baby blue shorts for a while. Some students journeyed to the laundromat weekly if they were inclined to keep things neat. Bi-monthly was okay for others. Still others went every third week, but that was stretching it. One student said, "When I get down to a cer- tain pair of underwear I know the time has come for laundry." Despite permanent wrinkles, lost underwear and clothes that shrunk to Rover's size, the laundromat was a place for college memories. Most you may wish you could forget, but you know you never will. - Tammy Dablof Y'allf 131 0. .J U
