Stormy Weather

Ever since the Arab nations announced their oil boycott a year ago, administrators have been talking at great length about installing storm windows in dormitories, because they are better insulated than the windows now in use and would therefore save heat, oil and money.

People in University Hall apparently favored the three-track variety because they would allow students to open their windows and poke tier heads out without having to remove panes of glass. The Massachusetts Hall contingent wanted the cheaper two-track windows.

The battle raged for months, but now a compromise solution has been worked out: on a trial basis, Kirkland House will have two-track windows while some Yard dorms will have three-track.
