Transcript reviving the *evivm£ trie* f* Mi tit tUk. the seventies"are back! //, Uovii look now, but the seventies are back," said a popular fashion magazine. No one wanted to admit it, but subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) nuances of the "Disco Generation" could be seen in clothing from all walks of life. Items thought never to be seen again, like bell bottoms, sideburns, and cutoffs, were showing up all over campus. Elvis sightings had doubled in recent months. If one was familiar with seventies fashion, current perpetrators were easy to spot. However, most students were too young to remember what the big folks were wearing then. So nowadays, some yuppie can ease on by wearing "John Lennon" glasses and a Salvador Dali T-shirt with his khakis and no one notices he's paying tribute to that great disco in the sky. Some were more conspicuous, like Christa Emerson and Laura Matzer, who combined chiffon blouses with bell bottom trousers. And then there were those who flagrantly displayed their deep affection for the seventies not just with their style, but also with their laid back approach to life and open- minded philosophy. Many of these males were sporting sideburns. When asked why he wore them, Howard Rushing said, "Cause they're cool...but I'm not a trendy like that guy on 'Beverly Hills, 90210.' For me, it's a personal tribute to Elvis. He's alive, you know." Uh-huh. Not all those with sideburns were paying homage to the King, whose controversial death occurred in 1977. David Welch, a Pi Kappa Alpha pledge, said, "Last time I went to get a haircut, I just told the guy to lay some 'burns on me." Several students, like Nathan Fowler, were wearing cut-offs. When asked why, he said, "I wore these 'cause I have Bio today and there's no A/C in the Science building." Air conditioning or not, both cut offs and cut offs with the ragged hem rolled up have been very common. Plaid has also been very popular, but many are thankful that polyester is not. That is one 70's fad that, hopefully, is gone for good! -Angela Snyder I* Student Life Left: Students gathered outside Etc. in the U.C. to read The Daily Cougar and pass the time before class.
