The maze-like organization of Dwinelle Hall classrooms poses an especially daunting predicament to students who have less than 10 minutes to find a professor's office. Overcoming this difficulty, however, may be possible in the near future due to the development of a system of sensors by four UC Berkeley students who plan to make locating a professor in less than a minute a commonplace occurrence.

Life Outside Hockeytown: Finding Fans South of the Border
Picture, if you will, a sad, pitiful, lonely soul. He sits alone in a sports bar, watching a snow-obscured picture on a television set. He wears a tattered Toronto Maple Leafs scarf casually slung over his shoulders. On his feet are well-worn shoes and a pile of Street Beats on the table next to him.

Letters to Sports: Fresno Outrage, Continued
The ignorance displayed in Gavin McMeeking's column ("A Very Fresno Weekend," Sept. 27) disgusted me.

Do you know where milk comes from? Are tall buildings really more important than agriculture?
