Parking Lot Gets
BY LIBBY IIOLSIIOUSEK
A year ago, tlie parking lot was
not paved. In the fall and early
winter when the rains came, so did
muddy tires and cars. Even shoes
got muddy walking from the car
to the school. Then the nice, new
floors in the school got muddy.
In the later winter, the snows
came and the parking lot became
an accident trap. Cars skidded on
the paved road, true; but, tliey
stuck in tlie slush of an unpaved
parking lot, too. Backs were
sprained lifing cars out of that
In tlie early spring the winds
came and dried up tlie parkmg
loL Cars got dusty. Shoes got
dusty—hard rocks in the lot tore
into shoe soles.
In tlie late spring and summer.
the hot sun came, and so did the
heavy, noisy machines to pave the
parking lot. Wet tar got on shoes
and school floors and rugs, and
furniture. Noise from machines
pounded out tlie seconds of time to
tests being given in C Building.
Today, the parking lot is not
only paved, but marked with dis
tinct parking lines, as well as
arrows which denote a perimeter
lane. New rules have been estab
lished reguarding methods for
parking a car. These rules are
expected to keep traffic congestion
and confusion to a minimum and
also provide for a safer walk from
tlie parking lot to the classroom
The area at tlie first lane serves
as a traffic and parking lane. All

Journal Promotes '^^Name The Swans” Contest
During the recent “Open House”
for freshmen and tlieir relatives,
somebody's sweet little sister
gained command of tlie attention of
the FAC member, who wishes to
remain annonymous, by jumping up
and down on his toes and jerking
his tie until his face turned crim
“Hey Mr. Fac,” she exclaimed,
“You know tliose two big ol’ swans
down in tliat lake?”
The FAC man had to admit tliat
he know tlicm when lie saw them,
altliough he had never met tliem.
“Well,” she asked, “What’s
The FAC member was stumped.
Naturally, he gave her the famous
Toniglit-Show-shrug and mumbled,
He felt terrible about tliis. You
luiovv, here he was supposed to be
helpful and answer all t^pes of
contrived questions tliat tlie snealiy
tourers might ask, such as “How
many square feet of spiice in tlie
rest rooms?” and die like, and he
wasn't even able to answer a little
girl's innocent inquiry.
He felt so bad that he vowed he
would punish liimseK by not attend
ing the FAC party.
The JOURNAL heard of this
and figured tliat was too much
punishment for any man. We didn’t
linow the names of tlie swans
either, so we cheeked around and
found out that they, indeed, do not

have names as yet.
The FAC man felt alot better
about the whole thing when he was
told this fact. Just ask anybody at
the party how much better he felt.
The JOURNAL decided not to
let matters stand as they were,
however. No sir, we’re going to
have a contestto name those swans.
Anj- student may enter the
“Name The Swans” contest by
filling out an official entry blank
at tlie Union information desk and
dropping it into the box which will
be nearby. A student may enter as
many times as he or she wishes.
According to reliable sources,
tlie swans are supposed to be
mates. That means that one is a
male and one is a female, right?
So keep tliat in mind when think
ing of names.
The prize to be awarded to the
winner of tlie “Name The Swans”
contest is two tree tickets to see
die Bitter End Singers in Ovens
Auditorium on Sunday, October 2.
Mr. Brenton Steele, Program
Director of the Union will judge
die contest since he is making the
tickets available to the JOURNAL.
Besides, he knows as much about
the web-footed-friends as anybody.
