A View from the Mount Sitting in Vernon 401, you can hear the two guys in the building across the yard listening to " Got the Fever, " by Southside Johnny and the Ashbury Jukes. The temperatures is 75 degrees and you don ' t want to be in Mr. Barach ' s Press and Society class. You want to be outside work- ing your tan. The mind wanders and the eyes stare out the window. Another world gazes back. The trees and patios re- mind you of the country, but the cars beeping bring the sounds of the city to the ear. The class goes by so slowly. 2:20. How could it be only 2:20? Not lis- tening to the days lecture, you con- tinue to look out the window. Your eyes follow the winding staircases and fire escapes of the Pickney street apartments. The couple loung- ing in their roof-top hot tub are hav- ing a great time and your body is stuck in class. You wish you were there too. Only ten more minutes to go. You look over the trees and building tops and can see the Beacon Chambers and other Suffolk buildings in the distance. What are all of your friends doing in their classes over there? Are they still in class? No, they are out on the Common catching the rays and lick- ing Kelly ' s ice cream cones. 2:50. He ' s finished. Thank God. Why are you always kept until the last minute? Racing down the stairs in the attempt to be the first one out the door. You truck down the hill, past all the building fronts whose backyards you know by heart. Where are your friends? You want to join them on this great day. None of them went to class so they went home, leaving you to en- joy the day alone. by Amy Scarborough 4

The hidden treasures of Ridgeway unveiled The finer side of the lane. Ever notice these scenes on the Lane? Well, believe them, they are. Many of the nicer things are hid- den from view and normally would not be given a second glance. Well, the photographer wasn ' t normal to begin with and searched the Lane high and low for something that caught the fancy. For example, the fire escape is wedged between two dingy buildings. One sunny day, a gleam of wrought iron caught the al- ready mad one in the photographer ' s eye and voila . . . Many students are too busy to even pause and look around at the hidden treasures in the Lane. A bronze eagle rests atop an entrance light steps from the Student Activi- ties building. On the top floor of the " Restricted Parking " area building, a miniature forest grows. Most of the eye attention is usual- ly on the ground looking for Lane- infestation of the odious kind to avoid. This year may be different for the Lane. A " Pooper Scooper " law was so kindly passed by the legisla- ture up on the Hill. Since the law came into effect, the gymnastic side- stepping has ceased a bit. However, one problem will con- tinue to plague the Lane . . . lack of space. Many of the residents of the Hill regard Ridgeway as the high- way of the decade, speeding down and narrowly missing students play- ing catch or moving toward class.
