study slump sets in

Greg Roda, who was working on a
Spanish paper. 'I'm taking advantage
of study days," he explained. During
the term Roda claimed that he studied
about two hours a day, and said "I have
t a rule of no studying on weekends."
Charley Sneed shared Roda's laid-
back attitude towards studying. "If I
can stay away from the bars I'll do it
tonight." He studies more "when the
pressure is on" just before a test.
On Wednesday and Thursday after-
noons the tennis and basketball courts
and track at Palmer Field were
crowded with athletes. Bodies on towels
dotted the hills behind the dormitories.
A rather sweaty pair emerged fromt he
tennis courts and explained how they
could spare the study time. "One
final," said one, and her partner grin-
ned, "No finals."
worried about their impending tests.
They trudged to the libraries with
bulging knapsacks begining at 8:00
a.m. Sleepy pre-meddies and panic-
stricken souls who haven't cracked a
book since midterms filled the libraries

and notes.
On the fifth floor of the Grad, Kathy

Stefanof, a LSA sophomore, took a
short break from studying accounting.
"I usually try to get one of the big
typing carrols," she explained. "I got
here at five after eight and they were,
all gone." Stefanof said she planned to

Diehard students remained in the
libraries for hours. "Quite a few stay
until about 2:00 a.m.," said, Andrea
Phillips, a student worker at the Un-
dergraudate Library. On Wednesday
night about 20 students stayed until the
library closed at 5:00 a.m.
Even some professors were trying to
catch up at the end of the term. English
Professor Marie Ellman was working
in her Haven Hall office "trying to put
together an exam." "It always talkes
longer than I think it will," she ex-
"I'm grading papers," said Prof.
Thomas Toon, who teaches English and

course. "I should be doing something
more exciting," he added with a wistful
glance out his office window. Noting the
mid-day crowd of students enjoying the
warm weather on the Diag, he laughed,
"They're not preparing for that exam
I'm writing."

member and business school professor
Tim Nantell had considerable influence
in the board's decision. "Tim brough a

meeting Tuesday afternoon. He said he

per square foot.
"In terms of our limitations, we're
one of the most efficient store of this
kind in the country," said McKee.
"IT (THE structure) is not
traditional, but the work is getting
done," admitted Jacobsen.
At a closed meeting Tuesday night,
