Mekosh calls SGA budget 'chicken feed [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
Mekosh calls SGA budget 'chicken feed By Jen Dell'Alba SGA President Pete Mekosh has labeled SGA funding to campus clubs "chicken feed." Current problems in the funding of student activites here have raised a question about the ability of the Student Government Association (SGA) to adequately fund student activities and organizations. John Shaw, SGA finance committee officer, said that "legitimate clubs and organizations" can't ac complish worthwhile projects becuase of a lack of funding for SGA. For example, the campus baseball team recently had problems financing a trip to Maryland. The team just supply all its own equipment and renovation services. Last year, the team created a Baseball Club in order to receive help from SGA. The club was originated by Mike Gedz, president, and Barry Richards, vice-president. The club drew up a proposed budget for the year 1984-1985 and applied to SGA for money. According to Richards, the first semester of this year was a "hassle" with ...
Gundel leaves CC [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
Gundel leaves CC (continued from pg. 1) a "one-on-one basis" between Admissions and students. Young worked closely in the decision process with Gundel in a "team effort." "The individual is paramount," Young said commenting on the tremendous "pride in students" in the Admissions Office. "She has tremendous pride in Penn State and her enthusiasm for her work is outstanding," said James D. South, Assistant Provost for Student Affairs. South believes that Gundel has been effective in the recruiting efforts at Capitol. William Mahar, Humanities Division Head, agrees that Gundel has been effective in her directorial role. "Mary Gundel gave the Liberal Arts new recruiting strategies, she was a professional recruiter," Mahar said. A national search is currently being done by the administration to replace Gundel. This new position will head Graduate and Undergraduate Admissions. A decision will be forthcoming. Upon leaving Capitol, Gundel will engage in various activites such as pla...
Guralnick, Price support porn movie [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
Guralnick, Price support porn movie (continued from pg. 1) "For the university to begin in any way to preclude the showing of movies like this by setting standards or stipulating rules by which movies like this have to be approved would constitute what's known as prior restraint," he said. "Prior restraint has been outlawed by the First Amendment for many years now." The third point, according to Guralmick, is that "an outmoded movie being shown on a Friday night in a student center to an adults-only crowd where alcohol is prohibited and on a strictly voluntary (attendance) basis, the potential burden, the potential danger, the potential victimization that could grow out of that event is so remote and to suggest that the remoteness of somebody becoming 'criminally horny' as a result of a movie like that is simply outweighed by the compelling First Amendment interest." Laura Myers, a business major and Business Club president, was the fourth member to speak. Opposing the film...

Campus Forum [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
Campus Forum A message to the campus community from Neil Myers, Associate Editor Lots of folks stop me in the halls and ask why the Capitol Times doesn't print more sports, or more club news, or more literary news, or more people features, or more investigative stories, or more whatever. Actually, I'd like to know myself. The fact is, we don't have enough experienced people. Now, why that is, I'm not sure. I suspect it has something to do with the two-year nature of the campus, the fact that lots of people commute, and the fluctuating strength of the journalism program here. But whatever the reason, we are somewhat understaffed, under-equipped and under-experienced. Actually, that's not quite true. It would be more accurate to say we are moderately underequipped, disturbingly understaffed in a few key areas, and grossly under-experienced. Some of us are trying hard to swim against the current. We spend most of our waking hours at the newspaper (and some o...
********* WNDR is ready to grow [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
********* WNDR is ready to grow By Don Strausburger Capitol Campus has approximately 35 organizations working under the wings of Student Government. For most clubs, groundwork for the entire year is laid early in the Fall Semester. Student leaders roughly design ideas for the year's projects and coast through the year following the master plans. For many clubs, a change in leadership results in no change in the scheduling of club events or, occasionally, the downfall of the organization. Right now, though, one organization is making a serious effort to take last semester's groundwork and build on it. I'm talking about WNDR! That's right! The school radio station experienced a change in management in October, 1984 and because of member interest refused to roll over and die. Through the efforts of several people, the excessive number of contacts barely kept by the one person who ran the station for the previous 18 months are being easily handled. Important contacts with facult...
Letters to the Editor: [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
Letters to the Editor: Dear Dr. Leventhal: I have learned that I will not be able to graduate in May because I must earn an additional THREE credits during the summer. Because of THREE credits, I will not be able to walk with my classmates in the May ceremony. This means that if I wish to participate in any ceremony, I must do so NEXT January. I am terribly dismayed at this policy. It is both intolerant and inflexible. By next January, I hope to have completed one term of graduate school. I will not feel like celebrating my "graduation" with a ceremony that should have occurred over eight months before. Certainly, non-participation is my choice. However, I now know that there is a FEE which I must pay if I wish to have my diploma H mailed to me. A FEE? Haven't I (and countless other students) paid this institution enough without these endless auxilliary fees? The purpose of this letter is more or less the equivalent of a primal scream room. Ater two years I've had it with th...

Do something different for spring break [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
Do something different for spring break By Stacy Krnjaic Ahhh! Spring break! It's that time of year again. It's time to relax, lay back and get your mind off Capitol for a week. At the close of classes Friday March 1, spring break begins and runs until Monday, March 11, a ten day vacation. What's there to do? Students in the Lion's Den had a lot of good ideas. Rich Namon said he is going skiing in the Poconos. Doug Knull is going to New York to visit a friend. Some are even going to that spring break fantasyland, Florida. Jeanette Karle and George Nelson are both spending their breaks in the Sunshine State. Some can just wish they were going to Florida. "My heart is going to Florida; but my body's staying here," said Louise Wilson. ' Some, are even going to places far beyond this earth. "I'm going to be in semiconsciousness for seven days!" said Steve Olson. Most people are going home, some will be working and some die-hards are planning to spend the whole break studying. Fo...
Study says college courses are 'drifting' [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
Study says college courses are 'drifting' WASHINGTON, D.C. (CPS) - College coursework is often full of "fads and fashions," and the growing number of nonessential courses students must take is wrecking the value of their college degree, say the authors of a three-year study released this week. The report, produced by an 18-member task force established by the Association of American Colleges (AAC), warns colleges' tinkering with traditional liberal arts curricula is diluting the worth of a liberal arts college education. "Curricula are confused, fuzzy and drifting," says panel member Arthur Levine, president of Bradford College of Massachusetts. Buffeted by dwindling financial resources and a shrinking pool of potential students, colleges have "put their curriculums up for auction and sold out to the highest bidder," Levine says. The report blames "nonessential" courses for mucking up traditional liberal education. It says remedial programs for students who are unprepared fo...

Turner, Richie top Grammy Award list [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
Turner, Richie top Grammy Award list By Don Strausburger Last year, it was easy. Every time Michael Jackson's name was announced as a nominee for a Grammy award, the highly coveted prize of the music industry, Jackson made the short walk from his frontrow seat between Brooke Shields and Emmanuel Lewis to the stage to collect another trophy. At Tuesday night's ceremonies, the women - Tina Turner, in particular - took center stage as the Grammy awards were presented in HoWywood. Turner reigned supreme capturing four Grammies, including three for her hit, "What's Love Got To Do With It," in the following categories: Best Pop Vocal, Female; Record of the Year, which is awarded to both the artist and producer; and Song of the Year, which is presented to the songwriter(s). She also won the Rock Vocal, Female category for her follow-up hit, "Better Be Good To Me." Unlike last year, many categories included anywhere between two and four entries capable of winning in other years....
Mushrooms are disgusting [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
Mushrooms are disgusting Humor By Neil Myers When you were small, your parents knew what you should eat. They told you to eat your peas, your asparagus, your liver. You remember how it was. Maybe they even forced on you the arch enemy of youthful palates everywhere: Brussel sprouts. It was all done in the name of two things - nutrition and the starving children in India, who would have given their eye teeth for a nice helping of Brussel sprouts. Maybe you swallowed the whole story - and the sprouts - and maybe you didn't. There was one item, however, that my parents never tried to make me love, and that was mushrooms. I suppose they felt a little sheepish telling an innocent five-year-old that a nice fat mushroom was what starving Indian children dream about. But I think there was more to it than that. I think my parents knew something that I would take years to learn: mushrooms are disgusting. I was recently having dinner with a group of friends. It was the end of a lon...
On-job training now almost like college [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
On-job training now almost like college (CPS)--Students at McDonald's Hamburger University, in Oak Brook, Illinois, live in McLodges and earn degrees in Hamburgerology. But they also work with state-of-the art technology, endure rigorous training in management, communictions and business skills, and can earn up to 18 credits toward a food service management associates degree. And slowly but surely, a recent report on how much companies spend to re-educated college grads concludes, coporate schools like Hamburger U. are becoming more and more like colleges. McDonald's is one of some 400 corporations spending millins each year on employee education programs to fill in the gaps left by traditional education, and to provide specialized training for specific jobs. "The typical college graduate has accrued a degree and a good academic education," explains Donald Conover, spekesman for AT&T's Corporate Education Center in New Jersey. But students "need a transition from a...

'Breakfast Club' brings high school memories [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 February 1985
'Breakfast Club' brings high school memories By Don Strausburger Thoughts of movies about teens and for teens bring to mind few positive outcomes. Most people immediately think of films like "Hardbodies" and others of that genre. As a result, when a good teen film is released, few people pay any attention, or consider seeing it. "The Breakfast Club" is an exception to the teen standard ~ one which teens of all ages should see. The film, which is the second part of a high-school trilogy by John Hughes, shows how five high school students learn to look outside of the peer groups of which they are a part. In looking outside, they both look at other peer groups and are given an opportunity to look back in at themselves. The Breakfast Club consists of five students who, for one reason or another, must spend a Saturday in the school library as a form of punishment for earlier misgivings. The five individually represent on of the five dominant types of high school student. Among ...
