Answer to the last question: The Orton Hall bells are now automated.  However, at one time they were rung by hand.  Faculty members climbed the 80-some steps twice a day.  Later students, called Chimes Masters, were paid $25 a week to play songs on the chimes.  In 1986 a modern electrical system was installed to automate the serenades.  Congratulations to Daniel N. for knowing the correct answer!
