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

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,

11910 Lage GFQQP Tales By Vanessa Finan Crown Editor Illustrated by Robert Lachman Crown Chief Photographer Once upon a time in the land of plenty there was an "Energy Crisis." Although it was heralded throughout the land, the people were unprepared for its arrival. It came sometime before sunrise, when the populace was unable to see it. The people looked high and low, although never finding it, they could feel its pres- ence everywhere. The existing rulers, Wealther and Plen- telope, were dethroned and exiled to another time, but swore they would return when the people were ready to abide by their laws, accusing them of bringing the "Energy Crisis" upon themselves. The new ruler was a monarch, who soon appointed the Cas Lords to their stations to dictate virtually every facet of the people's lives. Lord Regular placed his beloved Lady Ethel on a pedestal that loomed over the people as she charged them exorbitant prices just to move about the cities. When winter came, the people were only allowed to burn seven logs of wood a day, maintaining a 68-degree temperature throughout their households, and abusers were threatened with fines if they did not comply. Life was hard that winter, for the people could not psychologically accept the ac- I2 climatizing, although their bodies could. Far away in the eighth district was a small kingdom named Valley College. A Monarch ruled there also, but he was kind, and the people barely knew about the new laws because of the intelligent methods the Monarch used to accommodate the changes. A squire in the Monarch's castle named the Average joe knew that changes were being made, but all the king's men made them without upsetting the subjects in the kingdom. "l've heard the torches were replaced with 75 strings instead of the customary 100 strings, but they still seem to burn brightly," he said, "even though half of them were removed from the halls. "The bucket to the well is smaller, and we're not getting as much water as we used to, but I suppose it's just as well," he said. "We wasted a good deal transporting it to the palace. "We also discovered that if we keep the windows washed regularly, we'll only need candles on the walled sides of the rooms to balance the lighting," explained joe. . . . So as the day draws to an end, joe finishes up his final chores, and he never has to worry because there are just a few candles to extinguish. The End
