Schlea said most people who are brought to the ER for being overly intoxicated are collegeage students on the weekends. “Very few of the people that Lt.

DENTS COMMUTED AND BROUGHT THEIR LUNCHES FROM HOME. STUDENTS WHOSE PARENTS DID NOT LIVE IN THE AREA STAYED IN PRIVATE HOMES; MANY DID THEIR OWN COOKING AND ATE IN LOCAL RESTAURANTS, WHICH WAS QUITE INEXPENSIVE.
1916: ALL MEN LIVED OFF CAMPUS, AND ROOM AND BOARD FOR GIRLS TOTALED $4.25 A WEEK ($3 A WEEK). MEN ACTUALLY LIVED CHEAPER THAN THE WOMEN, BECAUSE THEY BROUGHT THEIR OWN FOOD FROM HOME AND DID THEIR OWN COOKING. FOOD COST FOR MEN WAS LOW, AS MOST OF THEIR PARENTS WERE FARMERS.
1918-19: BOARD IN WILLIAMS HALL WAS RAISED TO $3.50 A WEEK, MOSTLY BECAUSE THE WOMEN LAUNCHED COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF THE DORM FOOD. “THE GIRLS SAID THEY WOULD RATHER PAY MORE AND RECEIVE BETTER MEALS. IN FACT THEY SAID THE COST WOULD BE LESS, SINCE THEY WOULD NOT HAVE TO BUY SO MANY SANDWICHES AND OTHER SNACKS.” EARLY 1930: MEN CONTINUED TO LIVE OFF CAMPUS AND CHEAPER THAN MOST OF THE WOMEN BECAUSE THEY BROUGHT FOOD FROM HOME. MILK WAS USUALLY THE ONLY ITEM THEY BOUGHT ON CAMPUS, BUT EVEN IN WINTER THEY BROUGHT FOOD FROM HOME. 1942-43: A STUDENT UNION, DUBBED FALCON’S NEST, OPENED, ADDING A $1 FEE PER SEMESTER. THERE WERE NOW MEN’S DORMS; BOARD WAS STILL $3.50 A WEEK FOR WOMEN, $4 A WEEK FOR MEN.
For more than 100 years, the University has fed students and made changes to meet their needs
LATE 1940S: BUILDINGS WERE MOVED ONTO CAMPUS.
LATE 1960S: MEALS WERE SERVED DURING A TWO-
HOUR WINDOW, THREE TIMES A DAY. IF STUDENTS MISSED A MEAL THEY HAD TO PAY CASH AT ONE OF THE TWO SNACK BARS LOCATED IN COMMONS AND IN HARSHMAN. MALEY SAID PRICES WERE REASONABLE; CHEESEBURGERS WERE 35 CENTS. STUDENTS COULD NOT GO FOR SECONDS OF AN ENTREE, BUT COULD HAVE TWO SALADS OR TWO SIDES. “A TYPICAL SALAD WAS EITHER CANNED FRUIT OR … A JELL-O SQUARE ON A LETTUCE LEAF, WHICH WAS ALWAYS A JOKE,” MALEY SAID. “THAT COULD’VE BEEN A LOGO FOR DINING SERVICES: ‘JELL-O SQUARE ON LETTUCE.’” “I HAD NO COMPLAINTS BELIEVE IT OR NOT, AND BACK THEN IT WASN’T IN THE CULTURE … I NEVER WENT HUNGRY,” MALEY SAID. “THEY WERE MORE HOMESTYLE, YOU KNOW, THERE WAS MAYBE THE MYSTERY MEATLOAF IF YOU WILL, SALISBURY STEAK, BAKED SPAGHETTI, VERY BASIC,” HE SAID.
1971: DINING SERVICES SWITCHED TO AN “A LA CARTE” SYSTEM; STUDENTS USED COUPON BOOKS TO PURCHASE A WIDER VARIETY OR INDIVIDUALIZED ITEMS, LIKE SANDWICHES. LATE 1970S: TOWERS INN RESTAURANT OPENED IN
MCDONALD AND WAS ACTIVE UNTIL THE LATE 1990S. ALSO, THE STRAWBERRY PATCH, A PANCAKE HOUSE IN HARSHMAN, OPENED AND BECAME VERY POPULAR; IT LATER CHANGED TO BERRIES IN THE ‘80S.
1980S: COMMONS DINING CENTER WAS ‘THE TRUCKSTOP.’ IT WAS ESTABLISHED BECAUSE PRIMARILY MEN ATE THERE, AND THEY WANTED HEARTY, LARGER-PORTION MEALS. “THE BIG ‘CB TEN-FOUR GOOD BUDDY’ ERA [WAS] GOING ON,” JOSEPH SAID. “THAT WAS A BIG HIT.”

UNDERAGE From Page 1 If an individual is passed out in public, the call will most likely be deemed medical, in which case both the police and an ambulance will arrive. Police are typically already on the scene when the ambulance arrives for an intoxication call, Cowdrey said. Lt. Tony Hetrick, of the Bowling Green Police Division, said upon arriving, police will attempt to identify the subject and their age. Typically individuals are cited for disorderly conduct, unable to care for self and underage under the influence, he said. An ambulance will take the unconscious person to the hospital if no one is present to take care of them. â€œIf theyâ€™re a complete jerk and theyâ€™re still disorderly ... that opens up another can of worms for them, because weâ€™re not going to allow the disorderly conduct to continue,â€? Hetrick said. The subject may even be
taken to jail, Hetrick said. â€œIf thereâ€™s no one who can take control of them â€” no one to watch them, so to speak â€” weâ€™re obligated to make sure theyâ€™re cared for,â€? he said. Before sending the individual to the hospital, police usually do not place them under arrest, because this may deem police responsible for the medical bills. â€œWe argue that weâ€™re not [responsible] because we didnâ€™t put you in that position,â€? Hetrick said, â€œYou put yourself in that position.â€? Hetrick said police deal with intoxication calls several times a week, but an underage scenario, a few times a month. In his experience, he said, when police receive a call of an overly drunk person in public itâ€™s usually someone whoâ€™s underage. When an underage student winds up in the back of an ambulance, they are likely to have a run-in with the police. â€œYouâ€™re going to get a ticket at least,â€? Hetrick said.

ARCHIVES From Page 1 also professors; at Hopkins I could only coach,â€? Cochrane said. â€œIt took a little while to get the programs going, but after a while, they both played in the national tournaments.â€? Mike Wilcox, a three-time All-American under Cochrane in lacrosse, said he was a gifted coach. â€œI was a two-time captain for him. He always made practice fun. When you think practice is a grind he kept everything alive and took the pressure off of everyone,â€? Wilcox said. â€œHe expected a lot from everyone. He was a great coach in respect by getting the most out of his players and winning championships.â€? He has also been influential to coaches today, as womenâ€™s soccer coach Andy Richards said that he has the utmost respect for Cochrane. â€œHe is a fantastic guy. I call him The Legend or Mr. Soccer because of the way he started and shaped the soccer program of today,â€? Richards said. â€œHe has helped me out. Heâ€™s so knowledgeable and fascinating to talk to.â€? He retired from the University in 1985 but was still
associated with the University by becoming an archivist. The archives were formerly in the Doyt Perry Stadium, but when water got into the stadium, it would damage the archives that were placed there. As a result, he and Don Cunningham, also a former University coach, started placing the archives where they are now in Anderson Arena, to better preserve the history here at the University. â€œI collect things from the campus and all over the country,â€? Cochrane said. â€œIâ€™ve always been interested in history and sports, so I combined the two with taking this position.â€? Cochrane said he works with several Halls of Fame across the nation including: lacrosse, soccer and the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. He collects items from old jerseys and pictures to player cards and even buttons made way back in the early 1900s. â€œThe archives are getting more popular because of the hundredyearsoftheUniversity this year,â€? Cochrane said. â€œThis is something we thought was really needed. Plus we just love doing it.â€?

Agler said. â€œYou have to do something to advocate for yourselves.â€? Once interested participants are found eligible, they are placed in one of the host agencies. Host agencies must be nonprofit local agencies such as the YMCA, Red Cross and government offices. â€œThe host agency is essentially getting a free person,â€? Agler said. â€œWhen hiring older people, you know they will have a strong work ethic, and theyâ€™ve learned the value of the dollar.â€? Other host agencies include Job and Family Services, Wood Countyâ€™s Committee on Aging, the University, Wood Haven, United Way, Court House and more. Training assistants in the program talk to employers and advocate for the participants in order to find job openings. Participants also receive webbased training and job-club classes that walk each individual through interviewing, resume writing and more. â€œMany people in our program have never touched a computer,â€?
Agler said. The amount of time in the program depends on the individual and their training plan. â€œWeâ€™ve had people in the program for days and exited them into employment,â€? Agler said. Experience Works participant Carol Marlow worked for a factory for 13 years before it closed. She returned to school and graduated from Firelands in health information technology and is searching for a permanent job position. As a receptionist at Aglerâ€™s office she has enjoyed the opportunities the program has provided. â€œAfter being away from office work I had to quickly refresh my skills,â€? Marlow said. She also helped open the Wood County office. â€œItâ€™s been a good challenge because we just started with an empty office in July,â€? Marlow said. The greater numbers of unemployment have allowed for a rewarding experience for participants. â€œI can relate so much to the people Iâ€™m reaching out to,â€? Agler said. Interested participants can call 419-353-2600 or 877-496-6439.

director Kent Kahn said. The program began in 1965 and was known as Green Thumb and provided work for poor farmers. It has since grown into a leader in providing work and training for seniors. Interested participants must be unemployed in order to qualify. â€œWe like folks that are interested to call us to determine eligibility,â€? Kahn said. â€œWe have a software that assesses their abilities.â€? Those eligible will have 20 hours of training per week at minimum wage, funded through the U.S. Department of Labor and the Senior Community Service Employment Program and funded under Title V of the Older Americans Act. The older workers appreciate receiving a paycheck while in training, Kahn said. The program operates in 34 counties in the state with 536 people enrolled. Coordinator Jan Agler was a participant in the program and opened an office in Wood County in July. Agler was searching for a job and lived with her mother and daughter before finding
