Well. It is over and done with now. All the furniture
has arrived and been put into place. The office is still a
little disorganized at this time.
What happened? You mean you don't know. The
WAR WHOOP has moved to a new location.
You can't find us. Well let me remedy that. The WAR
WHOOP office is now located in Old Main first floor.
The new office will take a little getting used to for
some of us; after all we nre used to the wide open spaces-
hhat we had over in Mncdgen Building. Our new office
does not hnve nny windows which I for one find to be a
definite disadvantage. Another disadvantage is that if
you leave the door open all the cold nir in the hnll comes
in then our nice wnrm office is cold. Well that will end
when wnrmer weather comes to Abilene.
Putting aside the subject of the disadvantages of the
new office let us look at some of the advantages of it.
Central Location. That is certainly an advantage. Old
Main is well situated on the campus. Now it takes about
the same amount of time to go from the WAR WHOOP
office to the library as it does to go from the office to
Private Office. Our office is no longer n short cut for
people to go through in order to reach another office
(How do you like that Johnnie?). Personally I think it
does get a little lonely at times. I liked it when the WAR
WHOOP and the TOTEM staffs shared the same office.
They may be next door to us but still it is not quite the
same. It is so quiet at times. Sometimes you can actually
hear the quiet.

YOU were a victim of STU-

don't worry so was everyone

Seventy kids arrived Friday
night or Suturduy morning ex-
cited to be at"Bij; City College".
(Little did they know). But seri-
ously David Dillman and the
rest of the Admissions crew
planned an exciting and infor-
mative weekend for the high-
schoolers. For the kids that arrived Fri-
day afternoon they were given
the option of attending the MSG
film "Romeo and Juliet" or the
drama production "The Impor-
tance of Being Earnest". With a
choice like that they couldn't go
wrong After several Friday
night activities the high-
schoolers had a chance to get ac-
quainted with either President
Martin Hunt or Gold Star
MSG really appreciates all you
great people who gave up your
beds showers privney and
numerous other things for our
visiting friends. However un-
pleasant it might have been for
you it was great fun for the high
school students. Thank you.
The students were introduced to
the rest of the campus Saturday
morning. Also Saturday morn-
ing the kids and parents listened
to talks from McMurry's finest.

After riding my bicycle one day last week I hnve come
to the definite conclusion thnt the one thing thnt this
enmpus needs is n Bicycle Rack. When you take a look
nround the enmpus on nny given day notice how many
bikes you sec. Especially in good weather.
So mnny people ride bikes these days. Everyone has
their own reasons for it. Some do it because the cost of
gas is so high that they don't wish to drive their cars so
much especially if they live near the campus. Other
i people ride bikes because they hnve no choice. Perhnps
their enr won't stnrt or maybe they don't have a car in
the first plnce.
One of the most frequently stnted rcnBons for riding
bikes is "I do it for the exercise."
To get back to my subject of the need for a Bicycle
Rack I truly think that one is needed. McMurry College
provides the students with a place to pnrk their enrs
then why not a plnce to pnrk bikes.
I know for sure thnt it would keep the bicycles out of
the buildings nnd out of peoples' way. A bike rack would
also cut down on the wear nnd tear the trees get from
having bicycles locked to them.
Well nnywny it is a subject worth giving some
thought to. Look nround nnd think about it.
No truthfully the real taste of
McMurry was the excellent con-
certs given by the Indian Band
and the McMurry Chanters.
Now that the prospective stu-
dents were thoroughly impre-
ssed with McM Admissions de-
cided to climax the evening with
a sure-sell the All School Tal-
ent Show. By the evening if any
students weren't signed up
ready to become Indians the So-
cial Hall was the convincing
On Sunday morning donuts
and coffee helped us wish the
students nnd their parents good
bye. Most of us were sorry to sec
them leave but as deep as the
sorrow was it didn't stop the re-
joicing for finally being able to
take a long long shower!
