Secondhand nostalgia for secondhand smoke

Smokin’ in the Boys Room,” the 1973 ode to cheap, naughty thrills from one-hit wonders Brownsville Station, may not have done much for Auburn students, at least when it was released. Because if you were a student at Auburn in 1973 you could still smoke in the classroom—or at least get away with smoking in the classroom—and with a dog food bowl-sized ashtray on your tiny Haley Center desk.

This Auburn coed is only jonesin’ for knowledge.
