Computer 'hackers' surface at Capitol By Joseph Michalsky Do computer hackers exist here at Capitol Campus? Are programs being unknowingly altered or copied?

Most students deserve their aid, study says [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 28 March 1985
Most students deserve their aid, study says (CPS)--Nearly 90 percent of all student financial aid goes to students who do need the money, says a new study which challenges the Reagan administration's claims that many students don't really need their aid money The study, undertaken well before President Reagan unveiled his proposal to slash student aid, contradicts Secretary of Education William Bennett's charge that too much aid money goes to students whose families don't need it, says University of Wisconsin Professor Jacob Stampen, who conducted the study. In defending the proposed cuts at a recent press conference, Bennett said the cuts "might require (students') stereo divestiture, automobile divestiture and three-weeks-atthe-beach divestiture," but otherwise wouldn't hurt students. StamperTdismisses Bennett's comments as "rhetoric targetted at the middle class." The study shows very little aid money is wasted, Stampen says. "If you run the administration recommendations...

This weeks top ten: solid [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 30 August 1985
This weeks top ten: solid by Alan Pincus 1. "The Power of Love" - Huey Lewis and The News - This is one of those rare times when the best song actually get to number one. If this one doesn't get you moving, you've got a hole in. your soul. Huey does it without a dress or makeup. ********************** 2. "Shout" - Tears For Fears - This is not as good as their first single from the Lp "Songs from the Big Chair" entitled "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" but it's still good. Lead singer Roland Orzabal sounds like an intellectual snob in his interviews, but we'll try not to hold that against him. Eggheads are people too! A*********************- 3. "Never Surrender" - Corey Hart - It's bad enough that he lifted his intro for "Sunglasses at Night" from the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (are made of this)," but this totally monotonous piece could put anybody to sleep. How long can he get by on good looks alone? Longer than me. 4. "St. Elmo's Fire(Man in Motion)" - John Parr -...
