Belt Tightening and Planning is Key To Financial Aid [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Belt Tightening and Planning is Key To Financial Aid By Ray Burkett Renegotiations concerning student aid continue in Washington as this article is being written, but the outcome does not appear optimistic. According to Don Holtzman, Financial Aid Officer at Capitol, a reauthorization of Title 4 funds for student aid was conducted this year. These funds were originally devised in 1968, and with the present budget tightening in Congress some of the changes will be negative. In the future it appears students will need to depend more on loans as grant money diminishes. Congress has raised the maximum Pell Grant from $2,100 to $2,300 but whether or not the appropriations will reach that amount is another story. One of the positive changes that has occurred is in the definition of "dependent" and "independent" student status. Prior to this year a dependent student was classified as anyone who received over $750 worth of support from his parents, anyone who was claimed as a tax ex...
Nader Urges Consumers To Exercise Duty [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Nader Urges Consumers To Exercise Duty By Jan Travers "Power in the executive suite is held by the money people, and not the people whose specialty is the product," according to a consumer advocate speaking in the area Friday. Ralph Nader, speaking to a crowd of 300 people at Penn State University, Harrisburg, urged the audience members to exercise their civic obligation to get involved with big business. Speaking on the subject of executive accountability, Nader said that most peo-Ele can't name heads of irge corporations, even though many have been in power a long time. "If you know the name of a person who affects your life through plant closings, environmental problems and consumer fraud, you are not able to hold them responsible for injustices," he said. As an example, Nader related how his consumer group studied 120 speeches of Roger Smith, chairman of General Motors.

Penn State Football Celebrates 100 Years [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Penn State Football Celebrates 100 Years By Mike Camilli This is a big year for anniversaries. The Statue of Liberty turned 100 and Coca Cola has been around for 100 years. This also marks the 100th year that Penn State has had a football team. But, like Miss Liberty and coke, the Penn State football team seems to improve with age. Back in 1887 when the Nittany Lion football tradition began, the team had to travel by stagecoach to catch the train to Lcwisburg. That first game against Bucknell was obviously the start of a good thing. Penn State won 54-0. They might have won by more, but the school could only afford to get twelve players uniforms. Penn State also won its second and final game of the short 1887 season. The Lions beat Bucknell again 24-0. Even Joe Paterno couldn't complain about that schedule. Things continued to go pretty well for the young Penn State team. But, while they won their share, they also suffered some pretty staggering losses. One of the worst was...
Student Court Must Be Redefined [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Student Court Must Be Redefined By Joe Kupec Acting Chief Justice of the Student Court, Doug Richwine, is seeking to redefine the role of the Student Court at Penn State, Harrisburg. In the past, the Student Court was responsible for four areas of universitystudent relations. These included student appeals in rcguard to campus traffic violations. The court had the final authority on traffic citations contested by the student body. Under the present constitution, the court has final authority to deny or grant an appeal. Disciplinary appeals were handled by the court. These are categorized as damage claims filed by the university against a student or group of students. The Student court could previously rule on granting or withholding the appeal. Presently this function is being handled by the Office of Student Services. Another area of the Student Court's jurisdiction dealt with the handling of the Student Government Association Constitution. As covered under the present cons...

Hunter's Safety Tip [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Hunter's Safety Tip The Hershey Medical Center is advising hunters that hunt in this area to get pre-exposure rabies vaccine, since they handle the animals - especially the small game. The two shot series, given interdermally, are given 30 days apart. The price is $7.00 per injection. To continue the protection, the shots are repeated in two years. Appointments for injections can be arranged by calling Dr. Kammerer at the medical center at 531-8161. Kammerer warns that these shots do not mean a person bitten by a rabid animal should ignore it. If bitten, you should still go to the hospital for more serum.
Provost Evaluates Her First Two Years [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Provost Evaluates Her First Two Years By Jan Travers Dr. Ruth Leventhal became provost and dean at Penn State, Harrisburg on July 1, 1984. In April of the same year, Tony Perry, a former Capital Times reporter, interviewed her about hei plans for the school upon assuming office three months later. In an attempt to see how she has measured up, we asked her to reflect on changes made during her short tenure as provost Q. In 1984 you stated concern with the low percentage of minorities and women faculty and students. How have you addressed this? Ruth Leventhal: First, we laid the groundwork for our future, including identifying the cause of the problem. Dealing with the low percentage of blacks, we hired a minority recruiter, Kevin Brown, and an assistant graduate recruiter. The Black Cultural Arts Center has been refurbished, we've expanded Black Hirtory Month, and we've tried to develop a stronger supportive environment. In addition, Frank Swetz was appointed to head a task f...
"Illiteracy Subverts the Free Choice of Work" [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
"Illiteracy Subverts the Free Choice of Work" By Denise Reinas What would you do if you suddenly became illiterate? Let's say you were injured in an accident and when you recovered you realized you could no longer read or write. How would this affect your job, your family life, or your schooling? Many people in the United States are illiterate. "There are over 20 million adult Americans-one in five-who are unable to read a street sign, find a name and number in a telephone book, or complete a written job application. Twenty million more are marginally literate since they read at less than an 8th grade level," said Nan Cavenaugh, the executive director of the Central Pennsylvania Literacy Council, Inc. The Pennsylvania Department of Education estimates that there are 10,000 adults in Harrisburg City alone who could derive advantage from tutoring and literacy programs. Literacy expert, Carmen St John Hunter said, "What is needed more than literacy projects are programs orien...
Common Cause Wants to Limit Campaign Contributions [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Common Cause Wants to Limit Campaign Contributions By Jean Meitz On Thursday, September 18, Thomas DeWall addressed the members and guests of Delta Tau Kappa in the BCAC Lounge. DeWall is executive director of Common Cause/Pennsylvania, which is a national citizen's lobby working for openness and accountability in government at all levels. Statewide, the affiliate focuses on campaign finance reform, open meetings legislation, ethics laws, disclosure of lobbyists' expenses, and other government reform issues. DeWall gave a brief history of Common Cause from its founding at the national level in 1970 as well as the start of the state chapter in 1974. Campaign financing and ethics legislation are issues of concern both at the national and state levels. The recent passage of the Sunshine Law in Pennsylvania is the result of nine years of constant effort by Common Cause as well as other civic minded groups. The current issue that Common Cause is actively supporting is campaign ...
Titles Don't Determine Professors' Authority [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Titles Don't Determine Professors' Authority Jan Travers Editor Professors have a tough job, no doubt about it. They are pulled between their personal teaching style, requirements of the course that they must cover, and making the information interesting enough to keep the students involved. The 1984 report on the excellence in American higher education, "Involvement in Learning," challenged faculty of United States colleges to *r make greater use of active modes of teaching." The report suggested that in addition to teaching facts, college professors should encourage class participation through a variety of methods. For only when the student feels involved will true learning result. For me, that involvement begins on the first day of the semester. Prejudiced as it may sound, I am truly skeptical of the instructor who enters the classroom and introduces himself or herself with the prefix of Mr., Ms., or Dr. Right from the beginning, whether subconsciously or not, he is sta...

Excellence in Teaching Enthusiasm is Key To Teaching [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Excellence in Teaching Enthusiasm is Key To Teaching Julie Larson Staff writer I will argue that it is neither style, nor expertise which characterizes a good teacher, but rather enthusiasm. This rare quality can overcome even the worst of teaching styles, simply by its power to interest and motivate students. If interest is aroused, students may be compelled to seek knowledge even after graduation! In contrast, a well prepared lecture, which is not given life, by enthusiasm, will have little success in stirring student interest; knowledge imparted, and received, without interest will not likely survive the walls of this institution. Enthusiastic teachers interest and motivate students, who, in turn, become enthusiastic members of society. But it is often overlooked that instructors are employees and people; they are subject to boredom, frustration, and loss of enthusiasm. It would, thus, follow that, to preserve effective instruction, we must protect and regenerate th...
Future Warnings of Culture Shock Will Be Heeded [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Future Warnings of Culture Shock Will Be Heeded Campus Commentary By Joe Kupec Beginning my Junior year has been an adjustment. When I moved here many of my friends warned me about the challenges that lay in wait. What they did not warn me about was the confusion and cultural clash that I would experience. Penn State was true to form. When I showed up on August 27,1 discovered that housing had "sort or misplaced one of my housemates. There was no problem unless you consider the additional eighty dollar housing fee to make up for the absence of a fourth man a problem. Settling into the house on Jones Street was easy enough. Getting used to the sound of traffic and the regularly scheduled flights from Harrisburg International was another thing. I have learned something though. When you can't sell housing next to an airport the next best thing is to start a school. The captive population of students on campus will have to live in the housing despite the noise. The opening lectu...
