Transcript School daze Second semester headaches subside with spring's arrival Registration mix-ups and long drop- and-add lines finally yielded to smoothly coordinated class schedules for 30,000 springtime UHers. While the most-requested courses were forced to limit enrollment, other offerings had to combine their small sections or be discontinued. As dormies leisurely slept until 30 minutes before class, 90 per cent of 58 Classes the student body fought either morning or evening rush hour traffic to get to UH. Before having to trek across the sprawling campus to their classes, many found filled parking lots and were faced with possible five-dollar fines in no-parking zones. But classes that started with a bang often fizzled out soon after mid-term exams. Popular profs who had turned away many prospective students later lectured to classrooms half-emptied by an "epidemic of spring fever." UH students began retreating to the few remaining grassy hills and shade trees to relax and read unfinished assignments or perhaps catch up on lost sleep. As the semester drags on, shaded benches and blankets on grass lure more and more students from window-less classrooms into the warm spring weather.
