Early in the fall semester, fire struck John- ston Hall, a freshman women ' s dormitory, destroying one room and seriously damaging five other rooms. This fire occurred after an inspection team found 450 violations of the State Fire Code in 82 of the 99 LSU buildings they inspected. In April, a serious fire broke out in another LSU building Peabody Hall, a classroom buildling which also houses the College of Education. The top floor of this building, one of the oldest buildings on the LSU campus, was completely gutted, while the rest of the building sustained heavy smoke and water damage. Damage to Peabody Hall was estimated at $ 1 million, and over 4,000 students and 90 faculty members were relocated in the wake of this serious blaze. D. Gary 240 Issues
