Transcript THWARTING APATHY Opposition suppressed, partying rules the day St. Patrick's day was green with anticipation as Sandhya, our fearless Editor-in-chief, set out to take the staff for a night of stuffing at our local Bennigans. "Everyone meet at Ben- higans, 5:30 sharp!" cried Sandhya as we filed out of our regular Tuesday meeting. But, as always, the schedule was not kept! Allen took the initiative. He arrived at the appointed location at 4:45 so as to hold several tables for the forthcoming frothing band of Houstonian Editorial thugs. "Punctuality," Mona's trademark, held for her attendance at the night of frivolous merryment, and satirical humor. Her soon-to- be snared and harnessed beau, Ryan, joined in on the attempt at recreation. Parking and finding a spot to park the old faithful rust bucket proved the most formidable obstical for their night of merryment. Mona, Ryan, and Allen, green with frustration from the delayed hour, waited for Mary, Henry, Tony, Sandhya and her friend of the male persuasion. An eternity later the motley crew of editorial minds had assembled, but without the familiar face of Kathi Cook, our ever faithful yearbook representative. This is we all agreed that the year had gone extremely well, considering! An entirely new staff had to be constructed. Only a few remnents of past year's staffs could dents out of a population of 29,000! The year passed as unnoticed as the Reagan administration's eight years had. But, for those of us working nson, Allen Manning, Tton Yearbook Babes: Henry Reyna, Beth Johnson, Allen Manning, Mona Arnold, l^fary Valle and Sandhya Sanghani. Where's Mark Lacy? Photo by Allen Manning ^^—^^^ not to mention the ever absent face of Mark Lacy. Within moments of the arrival of the last patrons of this excursion into the twilight zone, Tony started his collection of incriminating photos. "Sandhya, where did he put his hand? Oh, don't worry. Tony's photos will show us!" Book discussion was kept to a minimum. Every other sentence contained some remark about the Fall's slow start, or the Spring's lackluster finish. But, be "gathered. Talk of short-comings in staffing at lower levels and monetary problems were the main topics of conversation. Of all the things discussed, most memorable were our greatest problems encountered while putting together the 400 page book: student apathy, faculty apathy, city-wide apathy! The fullest measure of student apathy is visable in the number of people who took the time to have their photo's taken and put in the book: some 450 stu- hard to construct a meaningfull, awardwin- ning, 1988-89 Houstonian Yearbook that we all can be proud of, it was one heck of a year: a year we will all remember!!! This story is dedicated to Kathi Cook, who as it later turned out had been waiting ever so faithfully at Spaghetti Warehouse. The leprichonish Sandhya failed to connect with her on the change to a greener location. ► Mary Valle and Allen Manning HOUSTONIAN Yearbook ■ 137
