Transcript Stereo /hrough the rain and the crowds the annual i Crank It Up Contest provided serious bass entertainment for the residents. People from as far away as Austin and El Paso came to compete for car stereo equipment. Many of the contestant's back seats as well as trunks were taken by their systems. One competitor wore ear plugs so as to protect his ear drums from the side effects of bass - hearing loss. Many patrons stood in awe while perusing the cars and systems. Jeff Calloway, a student had this to say, "I'd love to have a couple of these toys to play with." He went on to say that he "didn't know the difference between woofers and tweeters /but if I had the cash this would be quite an investment." People in the residence halls can remember "feeling the walls shake" and many couldn't tell if it was thunder or the bass. One of the contestants only had this to say, "wait till next year, you'll swear there was an earth quake afterwards". -Jennifer Van Akin /enth Floor South: Brian Givens, Eric Johnsen, Clifford McBean, Seth Hough, Tyrone Gant, Jesus Fuentes, Hakeem Bishi, Jeff Wilson, Bovery Barnes, Ben Morrow, Mike Plummer, Mike Carrosquilla, Binoy Samuel, Kamil Sandhi,Edgar Williams, Clint Huff, Anthony Young, John Harris.
