 Leaving things behind in the Flavin Auditorium  Lost Property.
 If you leave something behind and I spot it like
the Organizer and Scarf I picked up today, I will
take it to the Equipment / On Reserve Books Room on the first floor of
the SOM (as close as you can get to Marcus without going outside).
 So check in Flavin and check with the
Equipment Room if you mislay something
