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

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

Dont For et to Yiirn the Li his The Beginning. Whereas some toothpastes can boast up to 20 percent fewer cavities, Valley Col- lege can boast of using 46 percent less energy. The state of California and the eighth district Community College Board of Trus- tees demanded a 20 percent energy reduc- tion, with Valley complying with and doubling the requested cutbacks as early as last April. Even with the addition of the new VVomen's Gym, Valley is still a district leader in curtailing energy consumption. A bulb-snatching corp of men, spear- headed by plant facilities director julian Berko, were the working nucleus who customized the school to accommodate the energy impoverished conditions that hit the state full force last fall. The plant facilities staff scoured the campus, scrubbing away all the superflu- ous energy being wasted on empty build- ings and by cutting down on the Broad- way-lighted hallways and the tropic- heated, arctic-cooled classrooms. Visual cutbacks were seen throughout the campus as the staff proceeded to replace 100-watt bulbs and fluorescent lamps with 75-watt lights. Heating and air-conditioning were used less frequently, and 68-degree tempera- tures reigned supreme throughout the college. Electrician Fred Ortiz replaces fluorescent tubes with tubes of less wattage to help cut back on energy consumption. I3
