          show was held Wednesday, May 2,at 3
          1:30 p.m. in the elegant Multipurpose
          room overlooking the track.
             All models were either Highline
           College students or faculty members.
           They were chosen tobe in the show on
           the basis of their audience  appeal,          "We were trying to capturethat

                                                      such rash behavior.
                                                         The small audience seemed enjoyto
