At the very front of this enormous room was a television set, its tiny, round, bright screen filled with "snow" concealing all semblance of figures in an undecipherable program. Other than the snow flutter, nothing could be seen. (And believe me, coming from northern Wisconsin, I know "snow" when I see it.) The sound emanating from the TV set was too garbled and scratchy to provide a clue as to what... we were supposed to be watching. My debate team and I watched in the dark for about 15 minutes, saw nothing but snow, and could not figure out what was holding the rapt attention of all these students.
