This Day In Daily History
South Quad urinals leak through ceiling
Jan. 31, 1985 — Sections of South Quad Residence Hall lobby were saturated with bathroom water when the day before a broken pipeline from the urinals on the third floor bursted.
Surrounded by tape, parts of the lobby were sectioned off in order to prevent students from coming in contact with the pools of water.
South Quad deskworker Nancy Koch said the building maintenance officials were called about the leaking pipe and would attempt to fix the pipe today.
It was also reported that there was no damage to the third floor bathrooms.
While housekeepers had mopped up the mess, by 5 p.m the next day, new puddles had already formed.
A sign on one of the pieces of tape that sectioned-off the area said, “What you smell is what it is! Watch the drips!”
Some students didn’t mind the mess though.
“It’s typical of the Quad, you expect things like that to happen. It always smells like sweatsocks anyway,” said one resident, who wished to remain anonymous.
New ‘U’ president may be Berkeley Chancellor
Jan. 31, 1967 — University of California, Berkeley Chancellor Roger W. Heyns has expressed great interest in becoming the next President of the University according to an authoritative source.
The current University president Harlan Hatcher plans to retire this summer after having served the University as President for 15 years.
Even with Heyns’s interest, University’s Board of Regents have yet to contact Heyns.
The authoritative source said the interest expressed by Roger comes at a time when the Chancellor is facing difficulties in uniting both the faculty and regents of Berkeley.
