WATCHING — This group takes time out from intellec¬ tual discussion to watch the cameraman. SYMPATHY — A compas¬ sionate ear can always be found in the cafeteria—for student woes. SUNSHINE—Talk moves to the outside—the portico and benches—in fine weather.

CAFETERIA ADDITION—The new structure extends into the quad and is already crowded to capacity. An expected enrollment of 6300 in the fall will add several hundred more students to the competition for chairs. Cafeteria-ology IA -Most Popular Course EVERY student’s favorite course is Cafeteria- ology IA! Happily, it’s more than an instructor¬ less area of learning; it’s an endless fashion show, a dating bureau, a food-line, a meeting place, a snack bar, a smoking lounge—even at times a study hall, despite unsubdued squeals and unin¬ hibited young laughter. The newly enlarged eating center opened some sixteen months ago, and immediately was over¬ crowded—taking on functions other than gastro¬ nomic. Today, the penal refectory atmosphere of long rows of tables is continuously jammed with students, encumbered with assorted paraphernalia like luggage-sized purses, over-sized parkas, and all-sized books, most of the junk piled high on the eating tables and soon besmirched with sugar leavings, ketchup red, and Coke stains. On the walls gaudy posters announcing everything lend an air of modern art to the surroundings. Where Friends Meet to Eat Surprisingly perhaps, segregation is a way of life here. Groups of varying racial descent congre¬ gate at tables together like birds huddled against the cold. And sorority and fraternity members gather at other tables for informal confabs with their sisters and brothers. Friends are especially easy to make during the campus political rallies which are not really serious events. Recently a student petition circulated on the campus pleading for a new Student Union Build¬ ing which would include a lounge and browsing rooms for recreational reading. More recently, the new district superintendent, Walter T. Coultas, recognized that urgent need, adding that meeting rooms for student-faculty ’’bull sessions” should be included. But such a building seems years away. Hangout for Learners In the meantime, the Cafeteria continues to be the popular hangout for the gangs of students, more than 5140, who have much relaxing and socializing and informal learning to do between classes. This uproarious class—before 8 a.m. in the morning to closing early in the afternoon—is a focal point of student gaiety and a temporary emotional release from personal and world prob¬ lems. Most important! Since instructors avoid en¬ trapment there, the collegians freely pass out judg¬ ments concerning anybody. All the students get A’s. 7

What? Me Worry? By John Me Carthy (Editor’s Note: The ruminations of a typical (?) college man were recorded secretly by tapping his mind with a new " bugging” device. The evidence is that he has a variety of worries, many of which might be common to the young males cur¬ rently on campus.) CONSOLATIONS—Two beautiful girls are not having the desired effect on the author of the following essay. Janet Upstill and Ann Raikoglo are trying to be sympathetic. Uncle Sam Wants You! " YOU’RE in the army now, you’re not behind the plow . . Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? This is the theme song of a new grade issued to students here at City College for below average marks—a grade in the military. Have you wondered what it is like in Viet Nam? Let your grades drop and you’ll find out soon enough. It’s not that Uncle Sam wants just the stupid ones. Heavens, no! He just figures that if you don’t dig books, maybe you can dig foxholes. At the present time, fifteen and one-half units of courses is the minimum required by the Selective Service Board in order to stay in school. Some people just can’t hack fifteen units. They overload themselves and soon find that they are on academic probation—which automatic¬ ally drops them to twelve and one-half units—which in turn leads to digging foxholes. The Predatory Animal But the draft isn’t the only problem bugging the men here at City College. Men of Sacramento City College , be¬ ware! It is a fact that lurking around the campus are several members of a species of female called SNEAKUS BROADIS. These shameless girls believe in the old say¬ ing, " A man chases a woman until she catches him.” These unscrupulous females come to college for the sole purpose of securing husbands—for themselves, that is. This vicious carnivore is a highly dangerous animal. During the day it seems to behave like any other normal female, but at night . . censored . . . Never be caught alone with one of this species. The Enigma of Women Then again, maybe this isn’t your problem. Maybe your problem is with the girl friend you have already. Is she playing it coy? Is she really putting you down? Do you get that anxious feeling that is often the first symptom of becoming henpecked? Cheer up, Spunky! I’ve got the an¬ swer for you, too. Drop her. Then you ask, " What if I don’t got a girl friend?” Have you ever thought of going to Vic Tanny’s? Maybe you should read some good books, check up on the weath¬ er reports. This way, you’ll never be at a loss for words. The Answer To Poverty So what, you don’t like girls. You got money problems? That’s the second largest problem facing college students today. They just don’t have enough bread to afford a date now and then. Students in college need more money nowadays. Not everyone is as lucky as some people. When students need money, they hit the old man for it. Some of you poor unfortunate people have to work. Ech! Now I will tell you the simple way to get a job. You go to an employment office. After you have waited two months and have not gotten a job, try going around to different places that are seeking employees. If this does not work, sign up for relief from President Johnson’s War-On-Poverty program, because by this time you’ll probably need it. This Matter of Support After you discover that you can’t get relief and you tell your parents they’re going to have to support you for the next four years, what happens? Your mother might faint. Your little brother, who has already moved all of your stuff out of the bedroom you have shared with him for 18 years, might cry a lot. But now your father, that is a different matter alto¬ gether. He starts out in a subtle tone of voice to explain to you how big a bum you are. He calls you all sorts of names like " lazy-good-for-nothing” and " failure.” You know the whole bit; you’ve been through it before. As his face reddens, his volume goes up and reaches a climactic point in his oratory. After that, it is all down hill. He finally realizes that you haven’t been listening to a thing he’s said. He then starts to whimper such cute phrases as " The peace corps is a wonderful organization for a college student to af¬ filiate with” or " Why not join the NAVY and see the world?” Through a port hole? Not on your life. When he gets to this point, you can rest assured that he will let you stay for at least another nine months. Vacation-Time Blues Ah! But what happens when summer comes around. What will you do then? The old man might get sick of seeing you loaf around the house. Your paw might make like a papa bird in spring and kick you out of the nest. This might put you out on a limb. Why not try flying south for the Summer, like Argen¬ tina or Antarctica. You might impress your parents by moving out and not leeching off of them all summer. Then again they might pray for a snow storm in August.
