Some suggestions that Dr. Blount had concerning the health of people who are con stantly on the run and don’t seem to have the time to stop for exercising or a good healthy meal are: “if you get yourself in this condition, you will probably have a lot of built up stress because you don’t have an outlet and the best remedy is to make it a daily priority to get in some exercise.” WSSU students have no excuse for not go ing to the fitness center... fitness evaluation is free for students. 1985-86 Editorial Staff of The News Argus: Victor Coffey, Managing Editor; Angela Corbett, Editor-in-Chief: Karla Barksdale, News Editor; Yolanda Jones, Office/Business Manager; Alisa Wilson, Assignment Editor; Robert Toran, Sports Editor; Pam Murrell, Circulation Manager.
