New formats surprise radio listeners [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 14 February 1985
New formats surprise radio listeners By Don Strausburger After the first day of classes, you go home and turn on FM-104 and rock with Harrisburg's album-oriented-rock station, WTPA. However, after 7p.m., WTPA FM-104 was no longer playing "Central Pennsylvania's Best Rock." They weren't even WTPA any more; the "call letters were changed to WNNK and, after 7p.m., the station became Wink-104. That's right, Wink 104! The station once dominated by ZZ Top and other classic playing the favorite music of teenagers to rock reminiscent of both WTPA and Starview 92 (the original album-orientedrock station in this area) and became "Starview 92 Rock." The AM radio stations of the area were much less confusing and more dependable. With the; exception of one music format change, all is the same as when finals ended in December. The exception is WCMB 1460-AM, the sister-station of WSFM (Sunny-99). The poorly rated country station became "1460 Hits" and began playing the number one songs fro...
RADIO P€fiSP€CTIV€ [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 14 February 1985
RADIO P€fiSP€CTIV€ rock bands was playing Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie and even Barry Manilow. On the other end of the dial, the "All Hit, Magic 93, WKCD," began answering to "FM-93.5, WTPA with Central Pennsylvania's best rock." The new WTPA went from playing Richie and Jackson to ZZ Top and Led Zeppelin. Also on that end of the dial, WHTF (92-Rock) went from record charts of the last 30 years. The concept features hearing Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley back-to-back. All of a sudden, three of Harrisburg's favorite stations among college students had new approaches to their audiences. Michael Sarzynski, part owner and morning man at "Starview 92," said that when

Sexism is 'worse' outside of classroom [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 14 February 1985
Sexism is 'worse' outside of classroom (CPS) - College women find "even worse" campus sexism outside the classroom than they do in classes, a major college group claims. Discrimination against female college students by male faculty and administrators extends beyond the classroom and may be more career-damaging than in-class sex bias, the group's new report charges. In fact, sex discrimination in financial aid offices, and in career counseling and employment centers can cause women to "lose confidence, lower their academic goals and limit their career choices," study authors Roberta M. Hall and Bernice R. Sandler claim. The study, sponsored by the Association of American Colleges' Project on the Status and Education of Women, follows the same authors' earlier examination of college classroom sex bias. It revealed "things are even worse outside the classroom," when class rules no longer apply, Hall says. The earlier study charged male faculty favored male students in classr...

Gundel retires after 16 years as Capitol administrator By Joseph L. Michalsky and Dave Donlin Capitol Campus' Director of Admissions, Mary Gundel announced her resignation effective March 29. Gundel is leaving her post after 39 years in education, 16 of those as an administrator here at Capitol. Gundel, who assumed her present role in 1974, said over the past years her main accomplishments have been "developing recruiting strategies here at Capitol" and working with her staff to create a better image through the use of promotional material. Throughout her career here, Gundel strived to establish a working relationship with other Penn State campuses and community colleges. Having initiated "the first marketing and developing strategies for promotion" at Capitol, Gundel feels these programs have been successful. "It's a loss to Penn State and this campus and to students in general," said Pat Young, Assistant Director of Admissions. Young described Gundel's philosophy as a "v...

Panel members oppose porn By Carman Amerson Should Debbie have done Dallas? Four of the six members at a campus discussion said "no" last week. On Feb. 18, the discussion, featuring Capitol Campus students, faculty and administrators, resulted from a request by Student Activities director Jennifer Krohn to the Student Union Board of Governors (SUBOG) president Jeff Schnier, whose organization sponsored and showed the film, "Debbie Does Dallas" on Feb. 15 in the Student Center. Monday's discussion was attended by approximately 50 students, faculty members and administrative personnel. The discussion was covered by reporters from WHP-TV.

The major issues outlined by Bronner were "should such a film be shown at Capitol Campus?" and "the general issue of pornography in our society as well as our campus." Each panel member, after drawing lots to determine the speaking order, ...
2.5 million could lose aid [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
2.5 million could lose aid (CPS) - As many as 2.5 million college students could lose their financial aid funding next year if the education budget President Reagan sent to Congress February 4th passes, education proponents warn. The budget proposals incorporate many of the worst fears expressed by educators since the November election. And while education groups last year succeeded in pressur ing Congress to overrule most of the president's education cuts, officials worry they may not be as lucky this time. Reagan wants to cut next year's student aid budget by $2.3 million, a 27 percent decrease from the $9 billion appropriated for the current funding year, according to Education Department spokesman Duncan Helmrich. • Under Reagan's plan, the entire education budget would be slashed by nearly $3 billion ~ from $18.4 billion to $15.5 billion — for the upcoming fiscal year. "But (the current $18.4 billion budget) includes a $750 million appropriation for payment of prior P...

Top PhDs leave teaching for industry jobs [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
Top PhDs leave teaching for industry jobs CLAREMONT, CA (CPS) - Poor pay and shrinking enrollment are driving PhDs away from college teaching careers and into more lucrative fields, a current study shows, and the trend could mean there'll be fewer talented professors in classes in the next decade. In a survey of'38 colleges, Howard R. Bowen and Jack Schuster, education professors at California's Claremont Graduate School, found the deteriorating academic climate is persuading top professors and graduate students to abandon higher education careers. The result, they say, may be a shortage of good college teachers. "The nagging worries and decreased job security facing professors today are persuading the brightest PhD recipients to seek employment in other fields," Bowen told participants at the recent joint convention of the American Council on Education and the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges in Denver. While current faculties are "the best...
