smash hit at Family Weekend, giv­ ing rides on the Quad to Mom and Dad. The \hottest\ issue of the fall was Student Council's decision to make Longtin Cafeteria entirely non-smoking, sparking ofT the big­ gest debate of the year a s well as two surveys and numerous discus­ sions. Student Affairs changed even more, as Chuck Typhair left to move to Albany and Michael Walter arrived from Mansfield University to take his place. We lost one of our favorite administrator types when Dominic Szambowski left in De­ cember to work at a school in Swit­ zerland where several hotel stu­ dents had spent summers with Ruth Radbill, but Carolyn Curwen arrived to take his place. The Super Bowl was one of the hottest events of the new semester, since the Bills played the Giants and many PSC students were among the home fans for each team. The noridc and alping ski teams made the national cham p ionships that winter and travelled to Bend, Oregon to com­ pete there, giving us something else to be proud of. For those of us with 8 AM classes (since nobody else got up that early), Deborah riorville and Katie Couric became a big issue when Norville, out on ma­ ternity leave, was replaced by Couric only months after ousting Jan e Pauley (our favorite \AM Earth Mom\). \H o m e A lone\ \D a n c e s with W o lves\ and \Ghost\ were the movies that one talked about that winter. to the Gulf and watching the nightly news in the lounges became a reg­ ular ritual, especially after the war actually began on January 16, 1991. Student Council began dis­ tributing red, white, and blue rib­ bons in the fall to students who wished to show support for the troops by putting on their door. Af­ ter the war started they organized a peace vigil in Freer Science Audito­ rium that made the front page of the Adirondack Enterprise and a \peace tree\ in the cafeteria on which we could place \peace leaves\ with names of our friends and loved ones erving in the Gulf. We held our collective breath through the short but frightening war, and cheered when it was over and the soldiers began to come home. The recession caused by the war and the resulting hike in oil and gas prices continued to be a concern, however, as we began to look for jobs after Paul Smith's. The travel industry was hit especially hard, as Americans stayed close to home in the wake of the war and airline after airline filed for bankruptcy. T and Ters were the most concerned about this, but the effects of the recession showed up all over the hospitality field. Hopefully, this slump is beginning to lift as we go out into the workforce. What fol­ lows is a look at the Class of 1991 and our two years at PSC in words and pictures. Margaret Thatcher, the Prime Min­ ister of England since we were old enough to know what a Prime Min­ ister was, was swept from office by her own party in November of 1990. This, along with German reunifica­ tion, changed the Europe that we had grown up with and sent the in­ ternational scene into even more of an upheaval. The biggest issue of the fall and winter of our sopho­ more year, however, was the Per­ sian Gulf crisis sparked over the summer when Saddam Hussein and the Iraqi army invaded Kuwait. Many, many PSC students sent fa­ thers, brothers, sisters, and friends
