Transcript LEAKY ROOFS If the roof leaks, the plumbing is bad, and the appliances don't work in an apartment, you'd complain to the management — right? But what do you do it you're a professor and a class of university students, and the university won't minister to the needs of the classroom ? Dr. Richard Kasschau and his introductory psychology class met on the front lawn of the Ezekiel W. Cullen Building to bring their protest before the administration on April 27, 1979. The class normally met in Agnes Arnold Auditorium 1, but deteriorating conditions and continued delay in repairs brought the problems to a head to force the more radical action of a protest. Two years earlier, Kasschau had prepared a memo signed by other professors who also used the auditorium, explaining the problems and estimating the cost of repairs. Nothing was ever done. The memo was again sent in revised form in 1978, but the repairs were still low on the priority list for maintenance. No money was allocated for the repairs, according to Kasschau. Kasschau and his psychology class invited administrators to discuss the problem, but only Provost George Magner showed up. After reviewing the auditorium himself, Magner reportedly said it was a mess and would tell that to maintenance. Magner also said the administration had approved $30,000 for repairs and another $30,000 would be set aside for additional repairs. Agnes Arnold Auditorium 1 is just south and east of the new Classroom and Lecture Hall Building by the UC Satellite. The new building also encloses two auditoriums on the first floor and was completed in February 1979. ■■■Mi
