They got called more names than a pope has, and they could and many times did make themselves the center of attention. But no mat- ter what happened in the games, the intramural referees got no respect. The biggest complaints that intramural par- ticipants had were with the people hired to keep the games under control. But those same peo- ple who were hired to officiate the games also were intramural participants as each intramural team was required to furnish one referee. The job was not one that many of the players on the team wanted to have. Who in his right mind would want to have a 250-pound football player following him around palming a basket- ball like it was a grapefruit after you had called him for traveling? Many things wandered through the officials mind while the game was going on: "I sure wish they hadn't brought their whole club to the game, I might not make it home alive ifl have to make a call they don't like." "I cant wait till that guy yelling at me comes up to bat." "If he tells me my mother chases troop ships one more time . . The refs tried to be impartial, but when one team continually yelled at him objectivity went out the window. The refs did a good job for the most part, but some people complained that the games werent called close enough. Of course if the games were called close, many teams would have had most of its players sitting on the bench with five fouls before the game was over. With pay for a game at minimum wage the participants shouldn't have expected a profes- sional job of refereeing, especially when the play was far from professional standards. So the referees got less respect than Rodney Dangerfield, but you shouldn't worry about them too much. As long as they had the yellow flag in football, the technical foul in basketball and the power to kick players out of the game in softball, they would be okay. - j, Scot: Russell Same auld lang syne Away to the library the students all shuffled, in thrice worn shirts and jeans a bit ruffled. Attendance at Chapel, though still mandatory, is now so sparse ir's not worth inventory. Leftovers at the Bean seem more abundantg mainly because ofa menu redundant. Even the landscape is silent and rueful, Knowing that winters chill will be woeful. The gound 'neath pecan trees is bespeckled with nuts, and the dried summer grass has received its last cut. The campus is ready for the end of '82. And, by the look on their faces, the students are, too, The days creep by slowly as finals draw nearer, And many search in vain for a reson to persevere. When suddenly, horrorsl. almost without warning. The first day ofthe finals has come a-dawning. "Grab pencil and blue book and reference and paper, And caffeine and Visine, but leave the newspaper," To the third floor of Walling or the bottom of Morris It is really D-Day Cand I don't mean Dorisl. Only time and report cards will determine the worth Of the hours of cramming, the forfeit of mirth. Each exam passes, becoming almost routine, Especially after number thirteen. And just when it seems that the week's without end, The last test will come, on this you may dependg Then its pack up the suitcase, stuff the car trunk, Fill up the gas tank and pray you didnt flunk. There are sighs of relief as Abilenes left behind Until it's recalled, "Next term? Same auld lang sync!" Yau f its
