'Dead Week' Ends on
By SARAH SALTER
Brand Staff Writer
Rumor has it that this is Dead
Week . . . the time all social
graces are held in suspended
animation and packed in moth
balls for the duration.
It is a week of note-book
writing cramming and staying
in ... . the staying in is of
course the most grueling of all.
After a few hours of this
you feel as though you would
like to run a tin cup up and
down the bars and shout for
the warden to let you out of
this solitary confinement be-
fore you go stir crazy. Some
300 other dormitory residents
want the same thing ... it
isn't easy living alone.
After the few moments of
freedom you know during the
daylight hours you rush into
your room grab up a book and
begin to memorize frantically.
You commit to memory the
the largest in Abilene with-"a
seating capacity of approximately
2000 persons and a stage that
measures 34 feet in depth 90 feet
wide and about 60 feet from the
floor to ceiling.
Fred Olds Jr. partner in the
F. C. Olds Co. which designed the
structure said the Hardin-Sim-mons
stage is larger than most
stages because it will serve both
the auditorium and the theater-
The building will be the first
structure on the H-SU campus to
be constructed with complete air
Olds said masonry work is
presently within two or three
weeks from completion. Roofing
also is almost ready. Inside the
spacious auditorium structural
steel framework comprising the
balcony had been completed and
workmen are pouring concrete for
the elevated flooring. Concrete

in your Psychology text.
You are brought out of your
daze by your roommate who is
now shaking you violently and
grabbing the book. It is only
then that you realize that you
aren't taking psychology but
your roommate is and needs
the book to study . . . and
Chapter 12 isn't even required.
While you've been cramming
for your roomy's exam the dear
old folks at home are thinking
of you and decide to write.
And in this letter they send
the one thing you'd give your
eye-teeth for during the "live"
weeks . . . they send money . . .
with a note that you can spend
it any way you choose and not
just on necessities.
Parents have a subtle way of
getting back at us for the many
little things that rankle them
during our development.

director of institutional services.
While gifts are still being re-
ceived for the chapel-auditorium
however the building fund is
some $450000 shprt of its goal
Dr. Reiff said.
The 1960 graduating class do-
nated money for a clock for the
auditorium while another class
has specified stage furniture.
The president said the Univer-
