Queen for 1991.
Kristin Behrends senior music educa-
tion major from San Antonio and a mem-
ber of the Big Purple Marching Band

Looking around uncertainly Behrends
said "What do I do7"
But happy tears and a radiant smile soon
replaced the look of shock. "I can't
believe this" she said.
Behrends thanked fellow band and
GATA social club members for their sup-
port. "Thank ou bandLBand arid GATA
have been wonderful" Behrends said.

dent body Oct. 3. Final votes were cast in

Voice Mail II for the past four years and
they found it on indispensable service in
their work said Campbell.
The disadvantage Campbcllsaid he fore-
sees to implementing Voice Mail II is the
fact that "people will have to learn how to
use the system."
However Campbell said "It is the kind
of thing that once people leam to use they
will be hooked on it."
Campbell said he "anticipates the need
for written and group training sessions" in
teaching students to utilize the service but
nothing specific has been planned.
