HOUSEKEEPING It StinkS- Freshman Mike 'Trunk' Holland meant that literally, speaking about the Band Annex, the barn that housed the Cougar Band. The band followed the Cougar sports teams both home and away, but when the band went home, it went to a tin building that used to be a World War II tank repair shop. "Its homey-or homely," said Carolyn Jurick, colorguard member, "but it does provide a home for rats that would be normally living in the sewers." The Annex has been invaded by ants, squirrels, fieldmice, and yes, rats. It has also housed numerous flutes, trumpets, Tubads (the tuba players, for those uninitiated), drummers, and others who, like the rats, think of the Annex as a second home. This home may not be around too much longer. An addition to the Fine Arts Building is planned with space for the band in mind. The new addition will be funded by the grant of over 50 million dollars donated by alumni John and Rebecca Moores. "What the band needs is a new building," said saxophonist Paul Jurick, "To fix this place up to acceptable levels would be too expensive." "I like practicing in this building,"said senior David Stone, "but I wouldn't want to live here. I don't like rats, luckily I haven't seen a live one, but I have seen some large dead ones." Thennex, condemed more than five times, continued to be used for band practices and preparing for concerts, as well as a hangout for band members between classes. "It's kind of scary, because I'm afraid it's going to fall in.

Some of these fears resurfaced as a small tornado came close to the Annex in February, stirring up fierce winds, but did little damage to the old structure. "We were lucky that the doors were open that day," said Robert Mayes, director. The tornado flew overhead, blowing down signs and knocking out the lights for over an hour. Mayes expressed relief that no one was hurt during the storm. "I did notice the wind, butldidn'tknow that it was a tornado until after band." said Gaby Garcia, tenor saxophonist. Because it is home for so many, taking care of it is important, and maintenance is often done by the students themselves. "It is a dump," said Tubad William 'Bilbo' Watson, "But we can claim it's ours."-Michael Edwards In full tradition, the band does its halftime representation of geometric figures.
