Bronner's Research Reveals Consumerism is not a New Concept [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Bronner's Research Reveals Consumerism is not a New Concept Byjan Travers College students are taking a bum rap. Every time one of us mentions he is here to improve his future earning power, society jumps in with their theory that young adults are only interested in material success, leading to the moral decay of America. There is no denying that America is a nation of mass consumers, however, surprisingly this is not a new phenomenon. As early as the mid-1860's this consumerism has been growing. Industrialization, which occurred just after the Civil War, made more goods available to the masses. Dr. Simon Bronner, associate professor of folklore and American studies, will explore the growth of consumer goods in our lives at a conference titled, "Accumulation and Display: The Development of American Consumerism 1880-1920" November 7 and 8. The conference, under the direction of Bronner as coordinator, is being sponsored by Winterthur Museum with assistance from Penn State and...
Reach Out To Touch Registrar [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 October 1986
Reach Out To Touch Registrar By Thalia Cook Have you heard about the new concept in registration, "Touchtone" registration? B.Y.U. started it three years ago. Ten other institutions now use the system and twenty more are to begin this academic year. Touchtone registration offers significant advantages such as: -It is relatively inexpensive and efficient, which keeps registration costs down. -It allows students to decide, on the spot, exactly what classes they will take. -All expenses including tuition, housing, board and parking are also computed. -Students can register early. -The school can collect payments early. -Faculty can determine early if classes are filling up and new sections can be added if necessary. -Systems are simple to use and are practically faultless. Texas A&M will start using the country's largest and most expensive touchtone registration system in November. Another school already using a touchtone system is Georgia State. That system cost $130,0...

Professionalism Sweeping Law Enforcement [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 October 1986
Professionalism Sweeping Law Enforcement By Jan Travers Crimes and criminals reflect problems associated with our rapidly changing and very advanced highly technological society, according to a local college professor. Dr. John Ramirez, coordinator of the new undergraduate criminal justice program at Penn State University, Harrisburg, said this is why the program was created. "Today's society needs sophisticated people to deal with the criminal element," said Ramirez. This is resulting in the wave of professionalism sweeping the country's law enforcement industry. Ramirez hopes to form a partnership with criminal justice personnel in the area by providing training and seminars as well as research consultation. The program, which is intended for students who have already completed two years at a community or junior college or a four year institution, has been designed to fulfill two basic goals.

Women's Conference [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 October 1986
Women's Conference By Jean Meltz The first Women's Conference for the Tri-County Area was held Saturday, October 11 at Harrisburg Area Community College. Kate Rand Lloyd, Editorat-Large, Working Woman Magazine, was the keynote speaker who addressed an audience of over 200 who, by show of hands, were already working outside the home full or part time. Lloyd's topic stressed the breaking of old patterns for women and a removal of internal tyrannies. She pointed out the need to remove the conflict between women in the work force and those who have chosen to remain at home. A few startling statistics revealed were that the "American Dream" of wife and mother in the home is realized by only 10 percent, and that 55 percent of women over 16 are in the work force, and that 17 percent of all women are single heads of household. Lloyd noted that these shifts in balance are "salient symptoms of a social revolution." She assessed that men and children are being affected more slowly-"abo...
PSU Insurance Crisis [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 October 1986
PSU Insurance Crisis Outdoor Club Folds By Denise Reinas This year, liability insurance for the advisors of student organizations was dropped. Up until this year, advisors were covered under university liability. Because the coverage was dropped, some problems within student clubs have arisen. It is not considered a universi ty duty to be an advisor for an organization. "It is a voluntary effort for staff members to help organizations by providing advice and council," said Jerry South, assistant provost. Now some clubs may not be able to find advisors because of the insurance crisis. One club that could not continue to function this semester is the Outdoors Club. Douglas Richwine, leader of the club decided the club would fold. Aside from not having an advisor due to loss of their liability coverage, the club costs a lot of money to be run, and it also needs reorganization. "Dr. South did not feel that it was a wise use of money to be spending so large of an amount of st...

This support group would gather either on a personal basis or perhaps converse by telephone in the event schedules do not match. Although you personally may not need additional services or need support, you perhaps could be an individual to help others find ways to make their lives easier. If you do have a disability and you have learned to cope with it and have overcome obstacles, certainly you could be a strength for the group. If you have a disability and have some problems, the group could help you learn to cope with situations and to overcome the barriers you may encounter. The group also could work as a unit to make any needed changes n...
