Yummy for your tummy Where was "the place" to go after football games or for a study break? During this school year Too Good To Be Yogurt was an obvious first choice. The most common reason was that frozen yogurt "is less fattening than ice cream." That rule only held true as long as you didnt inhale a gallon a week of the delectable dessert or didn't add M8cM's or cookie crunchies to a chocolate and vanilla swirl. The location of Too Good To Be Yogurt on judge Ely Boulevard, only a few blocks from campus, added to the convenience of "just dropping in" for some of your favorite flavor. Senior Kim Gregory, an employee of the yogurt shop, said the busiest times were Wednesday night after church and the weekends. Nothing better to top off that weekend jog than with a large, cold banana and chocolate swirl. - Kristy Pendergmrr M8tM's on banana, yum-yum! , ,s Qa, i ciics r if ll " 0 . 4 ' T '.. g fm .i'.a..r Q. 1. S. Fl. Goodman MW' 5. Singing praises to warm their nearts. Out on the steps A favorite story among professors was of first dates on the Administration Building steps for a Tuesday night devotional, Although having a date to the Ad Building steps was nice, it certainly was not mandatory. Fellowship and spiritual growth were the initial ingredients that made Tues- day night devotionals a special time for many students. About 9:20 p.m., students appeared from all directions, breaking from studies, in- tramural sports, or a television program to fellowship with friends and worship God. joseph Dennis, a junior from Odessa, said he attended because "it's the best way to take time out and relax from the every- day routine. I've met the nearest people there." Sophomore jobie Cabbel from Los Alamos, N.M., commented that "it remind- ed me of Bible times, like being in the midst of Paul and the disciples. I also loved the music because it was so uplifting." "The beauty of Tuesday ngiht devotionals was its spontaneity that made it fresh," said Larry Nelson, senior from South Daytona Beach, Fla., and director of the Spiritual Life Committee. Although the devotional officially ended after "The Lord Bless You and Keep You" had been sung and the last prayer had been said, students stayed a long while to mingle and fellowship with friends. - Tammy Dabfof MGSSHQGS to U16 POlDlI Sing Song participants voted to spend 51,500 on a television monitor that displays announcements about upcoming campus events. But the monitor could never replace the most familiar campus billboard: the Omega Point. This 3,000-pound monument received almost campus prankster and vandals as did the GATA Fountain. Since the day the sculpture was erected in 1970, people speculated about what it was, what it meant and why it was planted in the middle of campus. A few years answer these questions sides, "To the Unknown Others found place to leave broad sides of the sculpture to boast favorite women, while others used the issue a challenge to a women's dorm, The Omega Point was not reserved strictly for glib messagesg serious protests have been presented there also.

If an award were given for the most original use of the "billboard," would have to go to the unknown artists who decorated the sculptu before the year's big football game with Texas A811 University.

What will ACU students do without tif trusty, rusty doodling pad? They probably w be forced to find another suitable place to scri ble graffiti. A simple TV monitor in the Car pus Center could never compare to a nine-fo outdoor billboard. - Tammy Fielder
