for Meade Heights
Walking a mile is little to ask a
student who is interested in an ed
ucation, but during the Winter Term
it will be a long, cold hike from
Meade Heights to the Administra
tion Building. One solution that has
been offered is to hire a bus to run
between the residence areas and the
This problem is not a new one, but
there has been .no long-term opera
tional solution. In 1967 a shuttle
bus was operated between the Uni
versity Apartments, which housed
all female resident students, and the
dining hall. The bus was run by
students hired by the school.
Discussion has been carried on for
nearly a year in the current situa
tion and an attempt will be made to
start a bus service for students dur
ing the week of October 12. It will
cost ten cents a ride to or from
Meade Heights. Students are re
quested to carry correct change in
order to expedite boarding the bus.
Stops will be made before and after
class, The Meade Heights stop is
the permanent shelter at the corner
of Weaver and Mars Drives.
If the driver can make enough
money from the students who ride
the bus the first week, it will be run
for a second trial week with consid
eration of a permanent schedule.
Interested students must ride the
bus during this first week or there
will not be a bus during the Winter
Term, when students really need it.
In the event that this experiment
does not work, other suggestions will
be considered. Ideas offered by stu
dents have been that the University
purchase a bus or hire students to
run a taxi-like service. Some people
feel that the stqdent funds already
in the hands of the administration
should be used to subsidize a bus.
Many other opinions will be discussed
if the present trial run fails.
Students are encouraged to ride
the bus. Giving it a chance will save
the trouble of looking for new solu

Meade Heights Life
MONDAY, AUGUST 10, 1970 (From
my journal) on a summer day at the
by Ann Ferrino
It’s Monday morning and it’s rain
ing on my day off. I had hoped I
could get to the beach today. I’ve
been trying not to get myself too
down these days. Playing at the cof
fee house helps me alot. I had
breakfast with my cousins from
Washington thank God Frank didn’t
start talking about the great Spiral
Agnew again. For a man with all his
education he sure can be blind some
times. Brodbeek and Weidner keep
popping into my thoughts.
I have to write an article about
Meade Heights for the newspaper I
think I’ll just write about what it
meant to me. How beautiful it look
ed in the snow, spring, and fall. How
the boys tied skis on the back of a
VW and skied round Meade Heights
one snowy morning, how one night
after a kegger 65 kids piled on a con
vertible to the point where you
couldn’t see the car. I remember
how it looked when I took walks a
round when I was crying and down,
I remember how it looked when I was
happy; like one Sunday morning
when Mirka and I washed the car
and Mirka kept blowing the duck
caller. The night Dennis and I car
ried two huge pots of spaghetti sauce
to Bernie Abad’s for the dinner
laughing the whole time because of
how absurd it looked and Dennis
cracking jokes all the way. I recall
one night in May when I took a bi
cycle ride at 2 in the morning all I
could hear was the clicking of the
English bike and the rustling of the
r£ ee ?ir. * low dra b everything was in
the Winter when it rained for weeks
I used to call it Monsoon season.
One night it was raining very hard,
we were having one of the worst
thunder storms, the electricity blew
out for almost 5 hours, and I dis
covered some black students be
candlelight, I really got into their
humor and how they acted among
themselves something that white
kids just didn’t have. Dennis, Mike
and me and two students from Phils,
really had a good time.
Three hundred people a week must
have passed through that door. The
best party we ever had was the night
after the talent show. We invited
a band back who played nothing but
Polish polka music. I danced the
polka with Abe Spizor and everyone
gathered around and clapped. It was
a bit of the old country in Meade
Heights. We had Mass in our house
and we had war in our house but still
Meade Heights remained after all
to be a reminder of Past, Present,
