It appears that electric lights,
clocks and radios have been go-
ing, on and off periodically for
a week while electric company
employees attempt to discover
the source of the trouble.
As'one of the men tried in vain
to explain to a baffled coed, "The
220 line got crossed with the 110
line coming into the house and .
but we're working on it."
THE LIGHTS in the living room
have been the only ones which
continue to function during the
blackout periods; consequently
this room has proved to be quite
a popular place for 21 coeds to
study, play bridge and put up their
hair at various intervals during
the night.
"The lights go out - and we
all reach for our cigarettes and
a deck of cards and head for the
living room," said one sopho-
more. "It's a very chummy ar-
rangement for awhile, then the
electricity goes back on and
conditions are normal again."

bers the night she spent in frantic
search for her bobby pins and
