Letter To The Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 April 1972
Letter To The Editor Summer Job Opportunities Career related summer jobs are difficult to find, particularly as it relates to students enrolled in the social science and humanities programs. There are a few agencies that are especially interested in individuals with such backgrounds. Your Placement Office will describe some of these agencies in the weeks ahead via the CAP1TOLIST. The Urban Corps is the largest off-campus employer of undergraduate students, placing more than 10,000 last summer in seventy communities around the country. Basically, it is a work-study program designed to introduce college students to local governments, and to provide them with practical working experience as interns in city offices and agencies. The Urban Corps makes careful placements. For example, if a student is interested in psychology, he could do rehabilitative work in an addiction services agency. In health, he could work on a venereal disease campaign, in intake centers and in door-to-...
What? No Fourth Period? [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 April 1972
What? No Fourth Period? We, the undersigned, wish to express dissatisfaction with the recent decision of the Student Activities Committee concerning the discontinuance of fourth period class for the following reasons: job responsibilities; child care obligations; commuter time-scheduling difficulties; and, overcrowding in Vendorville during fourth period. The above petition is being circulated by several students. We hope that everyone who agrees with it will have a chance to sign it. We hope also that those who do not agree with this petition will somehow let the administration know about it. That way, whatever action is taken will have the backing of the students. Since this matteT affects the students most, we urge you to let someone know your feelings.
ON THE MOVE- Total Home Comfort [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 April 1972
ON THE MOVE- Total Home Comfort Harold the Dwarf always sez about this time of year, "Well when spring comes around, it seems that everyone has to mention its arrival in some sort of manner appropriate to the individual." Now this isn't a heavy rap or anything, Attention: This offers nothing in the way of knowledge in itself, its history remains in being recorded. This also is just a simple discussion that is going, is in progress. When you suddenly come to the birth of this realization, the realization that 'this' (many levels) is in progress, You will have absolutely nothing tangible; Except that which you might want to touch to become. The Dwarf, Harold M.D. is interested in classifying this classic situation. He states: " 'This' is on many levels, two of which are spring and your reading this." Now from this, it is simple also to understand this next proposition which has nothing to do with the one before. It is: Imagine yourself to be an employee or a student at the Cro...

That's Beside The Point [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 April 1972
That's Beside The Point or - Rah Ra Stowaway-fly away. Somedays I feel like I don't belong on this campus, in this town, on this continent, in this age. Sometimes I feel like I'd be more comfortable in Victorian England, sipping tea with the Duchess of Double-dutch, or hunting with hounds, riding sidesaddle, long skirts keeping counter-rhythm with the gallop, slapping the side of the horse, the organdy scratching my knees. Getting up at noon, dressing until one-thirty, visiting until five, resting until nine, dining at ten, dancing until three. Being presented to the queen, falling in love with the second son of a countrygentleman. Or-sneaking into the pavilion, hiding behind a pillar, straining to hear every word that Socrates has to say. Scared to admit to my parents why a ten-year-old disappears every day after cleaning up the leather shop and eating my piece of bread for breakfast. Hard to tell them where I go since girls aren't supposed to have the capacity to underst...
Ratings [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 April 1972
Ratings UNIVERSITY PARK (APS) - Results of a survey on academic advising from 11 of 18 Commonwealth Campuses show a "vigorous spirit of advising" which is lacking at the campus level, according to John Casciotti, University Council member from the Altoona Campus. Rating their advisors, 19% of the students classified their advisors as Excellent; 35% as Fair; 15% as Poor; and 3% as Terrible. According to Casciotti, the mean is 3.46 — midway between Fair and Good - when the results are put on a 5-4-3-2-1 scale for comparison. 61% of the students surveyed said their advisor was helpful in determining what courses to schedule; 30% said they were not helpful; the remainder were unsure. In discussing career possibilities, 32% said their advisors were helpful while 50% said they were not. The remainder were undecided. A greater majority (55%) said their advisors were not helpful in discussing other academic or non-academic problems; 33% said their advisors were helpful; the remainde...
Youth Vie For Convention Seats [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 April 1972
Youth Vie For Convention Seats by Yvonne Pearson Yvonne Pearson is Dispatch's correspondent in Washington. Washington, D.C.-DNSI--Youth now control the Democratic machinery of at least two of Alaska's four districts, according to Senator Mike Gravel's (D. Alaska) office, and may control the entire state delegation by the time they get to Miami. The spokesman said: "The youth caught everybody with their mouth's hanging open." All over the country young people are becoming convention delegates in unprecedented numbers. They are not handpicked by regular party officials, but people "elected by the grass roots process, the likes of which we've never seen in this country," said the director of the McGovern Commission on Party Structure and Delegate Selection, Bob Nelson. Set up in 1968, the Commission is the key to youth's new access to the party's nominating machinery. It calls for proportional representation of persons' under thirty, officially termed "youth", in each state's d...

Students Operate Food Services [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 April 1972
Students Operate Food Services Storrs, Conn.-(I.P.) - When it comes to student-operated food services, undergraduates at the University of Connecticut are writing the book for the whole nation. The Associated Student Commissaries (ASC) was organized about a year ago, and recently, President Michael Duane reports that the $2.5 million-a-year operation appears to be in for a bright future. Mr. Duane, a junior, heads the non-profit corporation which provides about 2,000,000 meals annually for more than 4,000 students. The ASC operates this way: Undergraduates in 58 dormitories delegate the management of their kitchens to the ASC which hires a chef, buys the food, provides dietary supervision, insures quality control, maintains records and trains food handlers. Students pay from $220 to $310 each semester for food services. For these prices students receive three meals a day, five days a week, plus between-meal snacks. "The women's units usually pay the smaller amounts - the gir...
IS THERE HOPE? [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 April 1972
IS THERE HOPE? ( New York, N.Y.-(I.P.) - "Almost every group or constituency can claim victory on some issues; almost everyone has had the experience of defeat," states a report on the first two-year term of the Columbia University Senate. "There are few members who have not gained respect and affection for their colleagues, transcending faculty-studentadministration lines." "The 101-member Senate was the first central policy-making body in any American university composed of a diverse constituency - students, alumni, staff, faculty, and administration. The report was prepared by Wm. Theodore de Bary, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. It concludes that the Senate has proven itself effective in dealing with several key issues facing the University and has also begun to create "a new community" on campus. The report points to a list of 107 items brought to a decision during its 1970-71 term, a capacity to complete its agenda, and a record of surviving ...
Morals and Ethics [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 April 1972
Morals and Ethics University Park, Pa., Apr. --Must a university worry about social responsibility as well as profits when assembling a stock portfolio? A "moral minimum" obligation and guidelines to attain it are outlined in a new book, "The Ethical Investor," co-authored by Jon P. Gunnemann, assistant professor of religious studies at The Pennsylvania State University. "Schools of higher learning," the book notes, "recently have been urged to manage their endowments so as to respond, in some fashion, to the fact that they own stock in companies which pollute or strip-mine, operate in South Africa, fail to hire or house blacks, make DDT, napalm, and unsafe cars -- or take other action believed to impair the human condition." The agitation accompanying these demands impelled Professor Gunnemann and his two co-authors, John G. Simon and Charles W. Powers, both of Yale, to offer a seminar on the topic there. One outgrowth of their discussions was the book, which was published ...
