Letters: [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 31 January 1985
Letters: Dear Editor, The recent change of residence of the S.G.A. and all the organizational offices to room 216 was not completed with the systematic approach, which has created a lot of tension in the student body. In my Opinion, it is evident that there is a desperate need to narrow the distant communication gap between the students and the school's bureaucratic system. Although, better part of the President's Council meetings last semester was utilized in planning space distribution, the valuable time invested by those club members discussing the change was not heard by all. Upon my recent visit to room -216,1 discovered that most club's articles were squeezed into boxes, and arbitrarily placed anywhere in the room. Whatever became of the talks in those President's Coun cil meetings? Does what we, the students, say serve any significant purpose in the decision of this change? The move occured, but none of our club members were informed, which would have gave us a chance...

Reagan to cut student aid [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 31 January 1985
Reagan to cut student aid By Susan Skorupa WASHINGTON (CPS) ~ If rumors about the 1986 Education Department budget prove true, one of every four students who apply for federal financial aid won't get it. Students from middleincome families and those attending private or out-of-state schools would suffer most under the proposals, financial aid experts forecast. Trial balloons sent up by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in early January signal the Reagan administration may try to limit students to no more than $4,000 a year in financial aid, and disqualify families that make more than $30,000 a year from the Guaranteed Student Loan (GSL) and Pell grant programs. The budget proposals should reach Congress in February. Congress will then accept, reject or approve figures of its own. It could be months before Congress and the president actually agree on funding figures. "If the proposals are accepted - of course, we hope they won't be ~ it means a serious restriction to ...
Studies show Ions-term aid drop [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 31 January 1985
Studies show Ions-term aid drop WASHINGTON, D.C. (CPS) — Students this year have more financial aid dollars to use for college than any time since the 1981-82 school year, but, after weighing inflation's effects, the total actually works out to a 15 percent drop in financial aid since the Reagan administration took office, two new studies report. Students and their families also are shouldering more of the financial burden for their educations because much of the aid money available must be paid back eventually, the study found. In all, students will get nearly $18 billion in federal, state and institutional aid this year, about the same amount as in 1981-82 and up $1.6 billion from its 1982-83 low, according to a new student aid trend report by the College Board's Washington office. With those funds, most American college students have no trouble financing their educations, another survey of over 1700 colleges by Peterson's Guide concludes. Over 97 percent of this year's ...

Actor portrays Mark Twain [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 31 January 1985
Actor portrays Mark Twain By Jen DeU'Alba Capitol Campus slipped backward in time last Thursday. On stage in the Olmsted Building auditorium, a man looked and sounded like Mark Twain. The setting was "a lecture hall in 1905," and "Mark Twain" was a shaking, seventythree-year-old man toking on a big cigar. His anecdotes touched on many contemporary controversies: smoking, religion, media reporters, politics and prejudice. In reality, "Twain" was Will Stutts and the show was the nationally acclaimed "Mark Twain's America!" The performance at Capitol lasted two hours; all of which held the audience captivated. The approximately 125-person crowd expressed a pleased satisfaction and admiration for Stutts' excellent show. There was amused chuckling instead of uproaring laughter. "Twain" was witty, rather than hilarious. Stutts commented afterward that he was pleased with the size and quality of the audience. Will Stutts is an established actor. His productions range from televisio...

Winter movies: which to see [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 31 January 1985
Winter movies: which to see By Don Strausburger Eddie Murphy doomed his film career by an all-too-brief performance in "Best Defense" with Dudley Moore. In his appearance as guest host on "Saturday Night Live," he announced that the film reeked and that he needed to mend his injured quest for stardom. It was for that reason that Murphy accepted the offer to make "Beverly Hills Cop." And with "Beverly Hills Cop," Murphy's career is once again on the rise, if not at its peak. In a Christmas season which offered many self-proclaimed blockbusters - "Dune," for example - "Beverly Hills Cop" emerged as the top-grossing film of the holiday period. The film stars Murphy as a Detroit cop who goes on "vacation," but is actually investigating the murder of an old friend while off duty. His search for his friend's murderer(s) leads him into many altercations with both the man who ordered the murder and the always polite, often bumbling Beverly Hills police force. "Beverly Hills Cop" i...
Themes dominate winter movies [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 31 January 1985
Themes dominate winter movies (continued from pg. 6) The two fall in love and spend most of the film concealing their mutual desire from each other and, more importantly, the boss. However, the plot is overdone and boring. Luckily, though, the gap is excellently filled by the several subplots running throughout the film. The Cotton Club, an early 20th century nightclub, provides the scenery for the subplots centering on the club's performers and clientele. The club's patrons are all white; the performaers are all black. In fact, Gere's character is the first white performer to play The Cotton Club. The film features many mob gunfights reminiscent of the old Humphrey Bogart films and TV shows like "The Untouchables." Not only are the shoot outs exciting, but also the action never becomes redundant. Another of the many glories of this film is its dance sequences and production ""numbers. The choreography of prediction numbers is authentic to the "bad showgirl pro ductions:" ...
Colleges try new phone systems [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 31 January 1985
Colleges try new phone systems (continued from pg. 3) Marjorie Leffler, the student government president. "They hoped to provide cheaper service than the phone company." It hasn't quite worked out on other campuses yet, either. The jury is still out on college-owned telephone systems, says Michael Toner, president of the Association of College and University Telecommunications Administrators (ACUTA). Some schools considering telecommunications equipment purchases still are appraising the mistakes of colleges that have already ventured to become their own phone companies. "Most (systems) have been in service for less than two years," Toner notes. "Some schools that had the old Centrex (Bellowned) system would have been better off not to switch as Bell rate decreases have made some alternative systems more expensive." While most schools buy phone systems to save money, expenses for new staff and equipment can mount up quickly, he adds. The University of Chicago's three-year-...
College towns adapt [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 31 January 1985
College towns adapt WASHINGTON, D.C. (CPS) - College students get drunk, try the patience of local police and monopolize public parking spaces, but a new survey of "town-gown" relations finds that most college towns take these inconveniences in stride. More city officials than five years ago cite alcohol and drug abuse as their worst town-gown headache. Student alcohol and drug use was the number one campusrelated problem for 74 percent of the 56 cities surveyed by Newark, Del., city planners and the National League of Cities. Almost all the cities listed parking problems and offcampus housing restrictions as other major problems of hosting college students. "These are the old standby problems in any university community because young people make up a disproportionate share of the population compared to other towns," says Nancy Minter, manager of the league's Municipal Reference Service. In a similar 1979 survey, only 55 percent of the cities rated alcohol and drug abuse a...

Controversy surrounds film showing [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 14 February 1985
Controversy surrounds film showing By Carman Amerson The controversy concerning a sexually explicit X-rated film starring ex-Dallas Cowboy cheerleader Bambi Woods continues at Capitol Campus. Opponents cite "the promo tion of violence" and "the immoral nature of the film" as major reasons for their objections. The film, "Debbie Does Dallas," is being shown on Feb. 15 by the Student Union Board of Governors (SUBOG), a student organization charged with the responsibility of providing entertainment for Capitol students. Jeff Scnier, SUBOG's president, cited several examples of how the opposition has attempted to stop the film's showing. "By 4:00 (four hours after the flyers) I had gotten a nasty letter, a couple of phone calls, Provost/Dean Ruth Leventhal was on the phone and I was called in to see Jennifer (Krohn)," and then, "on Wednesday morning when I came in, all the flyers were down." Schnier, a proponent of the film, said he also has the support of other students, fa...
Air Force to fund water improvements at H.I.A. [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 14 February 1985
Air Force to fund water improvements at H.I.A. By Dave Donlin and Joseph U. Mlchalsky The U.S. Air Force has agreed to pay for water treatment equipment to remove volatile organic chemicals from Capitol Campus' tainted drinking water supply, according to Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Robert Lombard. The water treatment devices would be installed at the Harrisburg International Airport (H.I.A.). Air Force, officials are evaluating three proposals including an air stripping tower recommended by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources for the design of water treatment units at H.I.A. Also under consideration are systems to remove iron and chlorinate the water. The H.I.A. should receive a final proposal from the Air Force within a week, according to an H.I.A. spokeswoman. Portions of the H.I.A.'s water supply were found in 1983 to be contaminated with trichloroethylene, an industrial solvent known to cause cancer in animals. In a related topic, Middletown's publi...

'Patriot' editor speaks to Capitol media students [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 14 February 1985
'Patriot' editor speaks to Capitol media students By Joseph L. Michalsky Responsibility and credibility were the main topics at a media law session featuring Dale Davenport, city editor of the Harrisburg Patriot, last Thursday. Davenport, speaking to a group of campus media students, said the responsibility of newspapers is to print only credible and accurate information. Editors and reporters have an ethical responsibility to inform the public in a truthful and accurate manner, he said. "Newspapers are really only as good as the people working for them," Davenport said. The ethical question of who is obligated to enforce these rules is a question "everybody has to deal with," he said. "There is no easy answer." The hazards of errors in print, invalid information and hoaxes in media raise the question, whom do we trust? Generally, "an error is a lack of responsibility ," according to Davenport. But regardless of the validity of the information, "the basic responsibility (Of ...
