Campus Water System Examined For Pollutants [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 August 1986

Campus Water System Examined For Pollutants As early as 1970, the concerns of pollution were being voiced. A survey of 40 of the Pennsylvania collegiate editors ranked pollution above the Vietnam War as the "greatest problem and challenge facing America today." However, it wasn't unitl 13 years later that the impact of this sampling had an effect on Penn State at Harrisburg. In April, 1983, tests run by the Department of Environmental Resources on water samples taken from wells at Harrisburg International Airport (HIA) showed the presence of carcinogenic agents, namely hydrocar bons, tetracholorethylene, and primarily trichloroethylene (TCE). In addition, the campus water supply, which comes from a combination of HIA wells also showed the contaminants, but in lower amounts. Citing the low concentration of the cancer-causing agents, Department of Environmental Resources (DER) informed the campus there was no need to issue a notice to boil water, but monthly monitoring would o...

PSU Adopts New Alcohol Policy [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 August 1986

PSU Adopts New Alcohol Policy It's no secret. Most college age students are going to drink. It's looked upon as a rite of passage. A 1983 survey by Dr. James Rooney, sociology professor, showed 59 percent of the campus population drank weekly with 20 percent drinking three to five drinks daily. In addition, 30 percent reported alcohol interefed with school work. Social activities on campus supported these numbers. Few activities got wide student response without alcohol being served. Keggars of the 70's were beer bashes sponsored by student clubs. A standard event at these were |Jie booze raffle, where the winner won a bottle of booze, many times chugging it immediately. The winners of the Bathtub Races won a keg. The thousands of people attending the popular rock concerts left behind tons of beer and liquor bottles. Like many other colleges, Penn State's attitude concerning these events could be described as lax. Sure, they had rules but enforcement was low key, many times pl...

50 years of Military History [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 August 1986

50 years of Military History Former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara was not a popular man in the Middletown area on November 19,1964. It was on this date he gave the order to the United States Air Force to discontnue operation at Olmsted Air Force Base, forcing probable unemployment on 11,000 individuals. Despite local opposition, the Air Force had its last retreat at their Headquarters Building ( now the Olmsted Building) on August 28, 1966 and then handed their keys over to Pennsylvania State University, thus ending nearly 50 years of occupancy at the Middletown base. In 1917 the government bought land from Heinz Corporation (the pickle people) to build the Middletown Air Depot. What began as a single warehouse next to the PA Railroad tracks grew into a 600-acre base by the time of its demise. Airplanes flew out of the depot as early-as 1918, but it wasn't until 1922 that the Army Air Corp took over to establish their defense program. In expanding their flight program...

Bathtubs aren't Just For Bathing [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 August 1986

Bathtubs aren't Just For Bathing The favorite outdoor sporting event from 1968 to 1978 was the annual Bathtub Races. The event, sponsored by the student chapter of Pennsylvania Society for Professional Engineers, consisted of teams of eleven people pushing modified bathtubs around a set course. The route, which varied from year to year, was typically two miles in length, beginning at the student center parking lot (now Continuing Education). The course then headed past the power plant, around the mam building and then returning to People's Park just beyond Meade Heights. The winning team won a fivefoot trophy and a keg of beer, which was presented at the conclusion of the races at clubsponsored cookouts. For many years this was the major attraction of "Rites of Spring, the May celebration honoring the end of the semester. Pre-race inspection of tubs at the starting line. \

Plan for Central PA College [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 August 1986

Plan for Central PA College Scranton initiates "Every cloud has a silver lining, '' could be William Scranton's philosophy toward life. When the former governor of Pennsylvania heard the news from Secretary of Defense Robert NcNamara on November 19, 1964 about the closing of the Olmsted Air Force Base in Middletown, he contacted Eric Walker, president of PSU; Scranton, concerned of the impact of 11,000 base members losing their jobs, asked Walker to consider opening a graduate school at the site. Referring the matter to the Administrative Committee on Long Range Planning. Walker requested a proposal on the feasibility on Olmsted becoming a school. On August 10,1965, the basic plan the Capitol Campus was finished, creating not just a graduate school, but an upper division college capable of offering bachelor degrees, as well as associate degrees in selected technological areas and master degrees. This would complement the offerings of other local efforts, namely the newly o...

(continued from pg.l) A Gay Liberation Week was celebrated by an upstart student's group in February, 1972. A bomb threat phoned into the Public Information Office on February 23, 1978 necessitated sounding the fire alarm to evacate the main building. No bomb was found. In the early 1970's Peace Crop and VISTA regularly visited the campus to recruit. A 1982 study by Rie Gentzler, professor of behavior science, revealed the majority of women didn't see themselves as feminists because they were afraid of being labeled as radical or lesbian. In the 20 years of this campus, 273 student newspapers were printed. The Lion's Den was the new name chosen for the cafeteria in a contest in January 1982, just after it was remodeled. More than $17,000 was spent on the installation of Dr. Ruth Leventhal in 1984. In 1972 a coffee house was opened on campus. Called "New Birth," it was located at 946A Kirtland. In 1972, the student newspaper proposed that instead of spending $5 on caps and gowns,...

SGA Deals with Problems [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 August 1986

SGA Deals with Problems Since 1968, the student government has been representing student's interest. It has been their job to develop, implement, and oversee policies which are needed to promote student's welfare at Penn State University, Harrisburg, as well as to act as a liaison between student and faculty/administration. Like any political group, from time to time there has been controversy. The latest was just after the SGA elections in late April. The winning candidate for president was disqualified by the Election Screening Committee. He was found not to have maintained a 2.0 grade point average while at PSU, even though he had a 2.5 from his previous school. This oversight by the Election Screening Committee led to a group of outraged students petitioning the Student Court for a ruling on what they thought was an unfair situation. The court found the election to be valid and binding. SGA countered by unseating the ten members of the court and rescinding their decision, ...

Smoking in Classrooms Prohibited [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 August 1986

Smoking in Classrooms Prohibited A public campaign to protect the rights of non-smokers has gained momentum over the past decade. As a result, many businesses and public buildings have adopted restrictions on smoking. The concept of restrictions is not new, but the principle behind it is. Formerly, no-smoking areas were designated for safety, rather than for health hazards or personal objection. This was the case at Penn State University until 1975. During that year the university polled the campuses and found 'there was strong support for regulating smoking in classroom facilities." As a result, a university-wide policy was implemented to protect the rights of both smokers and nonsmokers. The policy, still in effect today, prohibits smoking in classrooms and seminar rooms, study areas, dining facilities and public lounges except in specially marked areas. Also off limits to smokers are the auditorium, exhibit galleries, laboratories, elevators, stairwells, indoor recreatin ...
