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

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

Hall lighting was cut in half, with every other fixture beaming, and although it wasn't compulsory, many teachers taught their classes with alternating rows of lights turned off. The electric water coolers in the hall- ways were unplugged, and unless students cooperate and stop turning them on, the staff might be forced to remove the cording, caushing unnecessary tax dollars to be spent, said Berko. The temperature of hot water in the restrooms has been reduced 10 percent, along with the water pressure. Valley has also conserved on human energy, Berko said, explaining that timers were bought forthe lawn sprinklers which liberated his crew from the cumbersome task of watering themselves by turning on the individual systems. However, his staff has more work to do now than in the past. Continually search- ing for new ways to curtail energy con- sumption, they have discovered if fluores- cent light fixtures are kept clean and the tubes are removed when their ends start greying, this will provide 50 percent better lighting. During their investigation, the plant facilities staff have accumulated some helpful hints for administrators as well as students, said Berko, On bright sunny days, he suggests that 14 Thomas Rukivina prepares piping for a wall heater in one of the many campus bungalows. J.,- Turning down the air-conditioners to save on energy, George De Smet cuts back on the hungriest energy eater of all. Wayne Randall adiusts the hot water temperatures, while VC students learn to acclimatize to 68-degree temperatures.
