' Some capricious friends indulge in folly with a comrade who has taken up the extra curricular activity of streaking The couple that streaks together, stays together. College fads have come a long way, and streaking' eeoing Ambitious Bloom The news of the spring semester was marked extensively with culminations of numerous major projects related to Valley College. Among the first projects to venture into the news spotlight was the completion of the new Women's Gym, which was dedi- cated lan. 8, 1974 by Dr. Robert Horton, president of Valley College, Mrs. Marion LaFollette, Chancellor Leslie Koltai, and President Frederic Wyatt of the Board of Trustees. The gym construction was delayed, since its beginnings last year, by inclement weather, worker strikes, and two cancelled dedication ceremonies. These problems, however, only served to enhance every- one's satisfaction of its completion. Several other brand new additions came to Valley that same week. The first was in the cafeteria directors office, which be- came the baliwick of james Loss, the former director of food services for the Los Angeles Community College District. Loss 10 By Wm. L. Crawford Illustrated by Peter Brandt assumed the reins of the cafeteria from the able hands of Mrs. Kay Grabowski. Another newcomer to Valley was john Becker who took over the post vacated by Ed Sowash, former football coach. Becker brought an impressive record with him from the University of New Mexico where he was an assistant coach for two years. Also breaking into action in a new position was Frederic Wyatt who assumed the presidency of the Community College Board of Trustees. Wyatt took over after Dr. Monroe F. Richman resigned as presi- dent but not as a trustee. The next culmination of effort over a long-term tfive-yearj project reached the headlines when the Board of Trustees approved a proposal authorizing the con- struction of Child Care Centers at all eight of the community colleges in the district. The site of Valley's future Child Care Center will be in Parking Lot D near Ethel Avenue and Oxnard Street. At this time the Community College Outreach Program reached a high point in success as it expanded its program to community members who, for one reason or another, could not attend Valley Col- lege. The Outreach Program was initiated by Dr. Koltai, who sought to increase the availability of the community college system. Valley recognized the existence of the energy crunch, which imposed a cutback on energy consumption by 20 percent, by cutting back on lighting, heating, air conditioning, and even hot water tem- perature in the restrooms. A computer carpool system and a better RTD system to Valley were also researched for application at Valley in light of the oil crisis limiting the availability of gasoline. The oil crisis, Watergate, the possible impeachment of President Richard Nixon, local politics, Women's lib, and many other topics occupied campus forums. Speakers included Congressman james Corman CD-22nd Districtj, 'john Schacter,

rr-r yu, ,, r' 1 I Mayor Tom Bradley suggested ideas for accomplishing conservation of energy at a press-conference in Van Nuys. Before a predominantly White crowd of over 700 students in the Free Speech area, the ebullient Black leader enjoined Whites to "stop being policy-makers" and further expressed hopes of getting all the minorities to work as a "coalition," Several weeks prior to Seale's visit, another issue dealing with minorities embroiled the council in further heightened contro- versy. The question of creating an office of jewish Ethnic Studies augmenting the established offices of Black and Chicano Studies threatened to render a split over just how much minority input the government could tolerate. I The ensuing argument was bantered back and forth with council members Ben Cheng and David Churchill contemplating flooding the ruling body with still two other minority com- missioners, those of Asian Studies and one representing the interests of handicapped students, if the measure passed. The threats never materialized, however, as the measure received a 15-T vote placing it on the general election ballot where it was overwhelmingly approved by the voters. But overshadowing this apparent preoccupation with minority issues, an evaluative look of the Fall '73 council's record is impressive. Besides their achievements already mentioned, they implemented a workable system of teacher evaluation, prompt- ed constitutional review, pushed an increase in paid ID sales from 54.1 percent to 60 percent, established a baby sitting exchange service, and generally made the workings of student government more open and accessible to the campus populace. Congressman James Carman contributed his efforts to the Impeach the President Campaign at a rally held in Valley's cafeteria. Governor Ronald Reagan appeared at Hollywood High School to support Proposition 1, which was, however, defeated. its chief failures lay in not achieving the flaunted goals of a child care center on campus and the opening of A.S. elections to non-paid ID holders, factors which may have accounted for Orijel's poor showing in the Spring '74 presidential race. The semester was capped with the official dedication of the New Women's Gymnasium, a prominent event in the college's 25th anniversary celebration. The event was marred somewhat, though, by the proximate firings of 129 long-term substitute teachers districtwide over the interpretation of the amended Dymally-Robbins Law. And, as Dr. Leslie Koltai, chancellor of the district, and other board members shuffled uncomfortably in the dismal rain at the Women's Gym dedication ceremonies, again, empty rhetoric could be heard resounding throughout the expansive structure.

president of the Southern California Chap- ter of the American Civil Liberties Union, and Frank Wilkinson, director of the Na- tional Committee Against Repressive Leg- islation. As if in answer to a need for innovative projects to be developed after those which had recently become reality, Dr. Horton met for the first time on Feb. 25 with members of the Los Angeles Valley Col- lege Historical Museum Committee to discuss plans for the creation in Valley's library of a museum containing the history of the San Fernando Valley. A few of the major problems on campus this spring, including the eternal, infernal parking problem, which was aggravated by construction of a drainage conduit, and the raising of questions concerning aca- demic freedom when a Valley student came into conflict with a professor and was temporarily suspended. But, no less noticeable was the outbreak of flesh- flashing "streak" freaks who caused many a double take on the grounds. No sooner had the new craze broken out upon the college scene when great numbers of Valley students joined in. As always, through the entire semester, the A.S. Council was busy bearing the yoke of leadership. Among the many appropriations, concerts and speakers sponsored, the council worked aggressive- ly at such problems as open voting, ID card evaluation and sales, and new pro- grams on campus, including Women's Week, Black Cultural Week, and jewish Cultural Week. A major event wrapping up the semester was the 25th anniversary of Valley College which was attended by the pioneers of Valley, including faculty, administration, and students. Among the student guests were student body presidents, editors, and club members from the beginnings of academic excellence in 1949. ll
