Transcript asy Come Easy Go In the way of ceremonies, President Richard Van Horn married Betty Jane Pfetterbaum, becoming the first UH president to wed while in office. An unusual number of top administrators left the univeristy. The rash of resignations began with the administrative restructuring over the 1988 summer months. Van Horn got into the act by leaving after Spring classes had ended to assume the role of President at the University of Oklahoma. He had previously indicated that he would not accept the position at OU, declaring that anyone who had seen it would know why he would not go there. UH Sytem Chancellor Wilber Meier also resigned and the Board of Regents researched for a suitable location to house the System. Faculty protests effectively cancelled their plans to move the system into McElhinney. Christmas didn't bring an end to the administration's problems, or snow for that matter, but September did offer s glimpse of Spring. It was suppose to be Hurricane Gilbert, but its idle threats proved to be one of the nicest days of the year. Classes were cancelled to add a nice touch. April brought a new concept to the traditional Spring Fair. The Spring Arts and Music Festival was a preview of what's to come in the future of student programming. The week of activities, under the guise of "New Renaissance," featured mostly music-related events. Joe "King" Carrasco livened up the Perpetual Park Party, a tradition that only gets better through the years. 328 ■ Closing SO a Tony Bullard Head Photographer CARPE DIUM. Seize t h e day.

The most inspirational event of the week was the visit of Soviet Cosmonaut Valetin Lebedev, who discussed his book which chronicles his 211 -day orbit around the earth, as well as the new perspective from which he views life. He explained that space does not change a person; that it can destroy him or make him stronger as he sees the greater picture and begins to study his own strengths and weaknesses. Through his translator, Lebedev was free to discuss the Soviet space program and even be critical of the government's bureacracy. Other visitors during the week included the Oxford Union Society debate team who brought new life to an old art. The Students' Association elections were probably the most controversial ever. Through media battling and run-offs nothing was certain. Reporter Scott Streater was put on Disciplinary Probation by the Dean of Students office for his efforts to expose election weaknesses (by voting nine times) in the Daily Cougar. And the residence halls showcased a bit of controversy of its own. The traditional "Pimp and Whore Party," which hadn't been held for two years, came back stronger than ever. While it will probably return next year, it may be sporting a new title. Students generally aren't concerned with the controversy and the changes taking place at the university for little more than their entertainment value. And when you look at the changes taking place around the world, in the Soviet Union and China, the University of Houston commands only the attention of its small corner of the planet. ► Mark Lacy Easy Come, Easy Go ■ 329
