Black Cat was great, oh man! " says one Scottie about this year ' s festivities. Once again, the A.S.C. campus experienced a week of food, frolic, and fun, culmi- nating in the (in)famous Black Cat Formal. Traditional treats such as special food, the Black Cat games, and a pumpkin carving contest were enjoyed by all. At the annual bonfire, the freshmen gave a little whistle and revealed their mascot, Jiminy Cricket. The Black Cat Production, put on by the erstwhile and most er- udite junior-types, introduced fresh- men to life at A.S.C. in a most inno- vative and quintessential manner. This year ' s pranks were imagina- tive and humorous, centering on that hub of culinary capers, Letitia Pate Evans Dining Hall. The Class of ' 91 thanked us for our support by steal- ing brassieres and displaying them in the dining hall. The Mounties ad- vised everyone to attend convoca- tion, where all became honorary sophomores and received tickets that kept us from eating lunch on the floor in " jail. " The dining hall served yellow and white food for the juniors ' prank, and one had to act like a Cheshire Cat to receive condiments. After Scotties woke up early in the morning to the sound of a fire alarm, the students found the dining hall miraculously transformed into Tracksides Tavern by the seniors. The " capper " was Mortarboard ' s prank which scared us all silly. The competition for the coveted Black Kitty was fierce, but the sen- iors were victorious, followed by — surprise — the juniors, sophomores, and freshmen. The formal was held at the Omni International Hotel, where one and all be-bop ped to the vintage sound of the Cruise-0-Matics, imported expe- cially for us from Las Vegas. However, there were some dark moments during the week — most notably the fire alarm and sprinkler incidents at the hotel. " That was just stupid, " says one student. There were also complaints about imma- ture frat boys and the state of being " totally dateless. " Another problem was the sense that some of the usual Black Cat spirit was missing — in both students and professors. One student said she missed " the usual unity of spirit and mind " of Black Cat. But, on the whole it was another week of fun and relaxation and an introduction of freshmen to life at Agnes Scott. Welcome, Crickets!

MiiUuMlmi We are all enjoying and bene- fitting from the changes on campus as A.S.C. prepares for the Centennial. However, it sometimes seems that we must take the good with the bad because along with these changes, there comes a lot of exasperation. Some students seem to resent the amount of money being spent on the renovations, especially on the Quad. Others complain of the " lack of cli- mate control in all buildings . " " I can ' t go directly from one place to another without walking into something that ' s not supposed to be there, " one Scottie moans, citing such obstructions as mud puddles, piles of pipes, and chain link fences. The construction workers exasperate other students. One senior laments, " I ' ll never get to use anything they are making. I just get to watch them build it! " The lack of physical education fa- cilities has really been felt this year. Both the old and new gym were closed, and the Physical Education department was temporarily relo- cated in the " Win Gym. " " There ' s very little that we can do in Win- ship, " says Miss McKemie. " I miss the pool, " says one student. Another is upset by " not being able to have jazz class in the studio. " According to Miss McKemie, " Exasperation is be- ing told the gym will be ready in the fall, then saying it will be ready in January, and then being told it would be ready in March. That ' s ex- asperation! "
