LARGEST STREAK: 1,543 at the University of Georgia.

MOST SPECTATORS: 6,000 Floridians who saw a solo streaker speeding across the basketball court during half time at the University of Florida-University of Alabama game.

BEST BLUE STREAK: By Canadian youths in Calgary, Alberta, in —4° F. weather.

FIRST FEMALE STREAKER: Carleton College (Minn.) Freshman Laura Barton, 18, who streaked the curtain call of a school play.
