Additionally, the window air condition
ers which are found in many administra
tive offices will be used for a maximum
of two hours per day, thus resulting in
a thirty percent electrical energy sav
ings. There are many portable space
heaters around various offices which
supplement the general heat produced
by furnaces. These portable heaters
are high consumers of energy, and will
be eliminated. Eliminating the portable
heaters will result in an energy sav
ings of approximately twenty percent
of the energy consumed in the build
ings in which there is a mass use of
such appliances. This may well mean
that those in the offices will have to
wear heavier clothing during the winter
months, but there is no alternative to
putting forth serious efforts toward
Due to the abusive use of the laundry
equipment in the Physical Education
Building, its use is now restricted so
that it can be used only for programmed
activities. Also, in the gymnasium,
large mercury vapor lights from the
main gym ceiling will be used only for
inter-collegiate competition. There is
ample light produced by the other
fixtures for regular use.
Inasmuch as there are vacancies in
several residence halls, a major effort
will be made to consolidate housing;
hopefully, to close down buildings that
are not needed. Even though this will
mean a temporary inconvenience to a
few students who will have to move to
larger residence halls, the overall
savings to the Mars Hill College com
munity will indeed be significant.
There is one area in which the total
cooperation of our student body is need
ed. Shower valves are left running, thus
consuming hot water when showers
are abandoned, thus running up heat
ing bills. Also, most students have
small appliances such as irons, hair
dryers, television sets, etc. which if
run during the peak hours which estab
lish electrical rates, do, in fact, incur
significant cost increases for the entire
college. The principal of peak pricing
is that the electrical company estab
lishes the fifteen-minute periods in
The Jukes have now, in only two tries,
reached the stage where they have tran
scended their original influences. They
may have begun as sixties soul purists,
faithfully copying all the oldies in their
collection, much as the J. Geils Band
did, but unlike that crew they are now
resolutely making a unique and per
sonal kind of music, a music that owes
a debt to the past but is stamped with an
instantly identifiable character of its
They call themselves Southside
Johnny and the Asbury Jukes and they
grew up on the streets of New Jersey.
There is special meaning to their kind
of street life, for it teaches the simple
joy of letting everything go and shaking
the night away; and if you really love to
move to music, nobody’s going to tell
you how to do it. What really counts is
that you are moved.
This is why Southside Johnny and the
Asbury Jukes are one of the fastest
rising rock and roll bands in America,
and why their new album “This Time
It’s For Real”, is one of the musical
gems of 1977. Don’t miss what Steve
Simils of Stereo Review states as “The
best damn band working in America
today.” The concert will be held on
Thursday night September 22 at 8:00
P.M. in Moore Auditorium.
Special guest will be Andy Pratt, a
folk-rock singer whose last album was
named album of the year by the Rolling
Stone Magazine. Tickets will be $2.00
in advance and at the door.
Cinergy Conservation Efforts Proposed
which the most electricity is consumed,
and then they determine the bill based
on the rate of highest consumption. If
the college could arrive at the time
zones in which its consumption is low
est, such as periods in the evening or
early morning when classrooms are
not in session, then appliances could
be used, but would not place the college
in a peak demand situation. More in
formation will be gathered on peak
demands and specific programs will be
proposed to resident hall councils.
There are probably many other areas
in which energy can be conserved and
any input which you may have would
be appreciated. If you have suggestions,
please forward them to Dr. Bentley,
Mike Faires, or Dr. Don Gehring. Pres
ident Bentley concluded, “The con
servation efforts will be an inconven
ience to some people, including myself,
however, the future of our country and
our college is worth the inconveneince.
Thank-you for your cooperation in
these endeavors, and I look forward to
receiving your ideas and suggestions.”
