Within five minutes after the West Engineering

were steaming toward the old building.
Trucks surrounded the red-brick structure at the '
corner of South and East University Streets as a team
of five firefighters rushed inside to find the cause of

As of Monday, the AAFD had responded to 451 calls

"The state will reimburse cities for protection of

Russ Downing, "and the University is state proper-
ALTHOUGH THE vast majority, of these calls
are either false alarms or minor fires such as "trash
can" or bulletin board fires, the AAFD responds in
full force to every call.
"It doesn't matter to us whether it's a waste basket
fire or a real one," said Deputy Fire Marshall Ben
Zahn in an interview yesterday.
"We don't take the chance of sending too little
equipment," said AAFD Fire Marslall Nolan Lee.
"It's not a waste of money to put out a.fire, however
small, before it gets out of hand."
"Whenever there's a multiple-story building in-
volved, they'll run everything to it," said University
Marshall Downing, "because they don't know."
"Nobody likes to see them called out for false
alarms, or even trash can fires," Downing continued,
"but small fires often become big fires, and you
really can't afford not to call the fire department."
Downing referred to a series of five alarms at East
Quad last weekend. A full force of fire trucks respon-
ded to the calls, each of which turned out to be inten-

Several farmers in Topeka, Kansas seem to be letting off
a lot of hot air over local balloon travelers. The balloons,
most of which are equipped with gas burners, are
disturbing and injuring cows in the region, farmers claim.
"I have a neighbor who had to sell three cows because they
damaged their udders running from low-flying balloons,"
said Marvin Smith, a farmer in the region. While members
of the Kansas legislature are discussing a law to force

Abner McCall Monday demanded that the 30-person staff of
the Lariat, Baylor's student newspaper, resign unless it

anti-Playboy policy. McCall said the newspaper is owned
by the university and therefore he has publisher's rights to
control editorial comment. Playboy's director of
soliciting, Dave Salyers, said yesterday that such reactons
don't discourage the magazine's staff. When told of these
two developments, Salyers responded, "That's hysteri-
