MARKLEY BY RONALD MEANS when most students thought about Mary Markley Residence Hall, they thought of the fresh- man population. Yet, this dormitory provided a great deal to its residents and the University. Mary Markley Hall was built in 1958 as a woman ' s dorm; then in 1962, it became co-ed to meet the housing needs for incoming students. With a maximum occupancy of 1177 students, Markley was one of the larger residence halls in the country. It took well over 6 million dollars to build the 283,888 square- foot dorm. The hall was named after Mary Elizabeth Markley, who was one of the first women graduates of the University. MAKl Markley provides a comfortable and fun living environment for the University students. Offering an Under- ground Snack Bar, video games, lounges and many more extra perks for the students , Markley was indeed a favorite for many.

the changes. AUCTION BY RONALD MEANS Mhe quest for companionship is often held paramount in a college students life. The Markley Multicultural Affairs Council attempted to remedy this situation by sponsoring the second-annual " Male Rent-A-Friend. " This event drew hundreds of Univer- sity women to see if they could find a man to rent for one weekend. The duties of the rented friend were numerous. To make themselves more attractive for possible renters, the male participants dressed up and performed dance routines. In sum, there were twenty participants on whom the women could bid. The bids ranged from ten dollars up to the hundreds of dollars (with a two dollar minimum) . The top dollar man was Shantan Reddy who was rented for one hundred and fifty dollars. One of the shows attendants, Candace Smith felt, " The show was a real success and I hope it continues. " HOl Rogers and his purchaser at the Markley Rent-A-Friend gather together as onlookers stare in awe. Roy performed the wishes of his purchaser for a weekend. " Th was really nice: liked ADDING flavor to his performance, Gerald Olivari, attempts the splits as the onlookers ex- plode in laughter and squeals of disbelief. The men attempted to entertain the crowd and Gerald certainly accomplished this goal. ANNOUNCING the funny and sexy intro- ductions for the particpant at the Markley Male Auction, the MC shares a laugh with James Blue, the auctionee, as the excited crowd of women start to bid. the ery. seen -V s JIMMY BOSSE Residence Halls 297
