20-Questions Supplements SAT [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 14 March 1975
20-Questions Supplements SAT Clemson, S.C.- (LP.) - A Clemson University professor has devised a game of "Twenty Questions" with a serious purpose. Bernard Caffrey, the head of Clemson's psychology department, selected 20 questions from the California Personality Inventory (CPU to form a five-minute test that rivals the four-hour Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) in predicting the grades students will attain in college. Unlike the SAT, which measures aptitude, the CPI has an ethnic-cultural bias against some portions of the population. His theory is that the test he devised avoids that problem. "Another step would be to have a colleague at another institution try to repeat the test results to add more validity". So far two groups of students have been tested. Results indicate the sophisticated game of 20 questions is slightly less accurate than the SAT in predicting college grades. The standard error of estimate in predicting grade exam measures motivation. Caffrey says that ...
(Cohabitation, 'fc Marriage * Are Contradictions [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 14 March 1975
(Cohabitation, 'fc Marriage * Are Contradictions Salt Lake City, Utah-d.P.) Living together to see if two persons are suited -for marriage is "a contradiction of terms," according to a University of Utah social work professor. Veron G. Smith, director of the Marriage and Family Counseling Bureau, says "practicing marriage without a license" is relationship without commitment. "The substance of marriage", he says, "is the commitment that a husband and wife make to work out problems together." The bureau is a training arm of the Graduate School of Social Work which also provides counseling to students, staff and faculty. Services cover individual, premarital, marital, family and divorce counseling. In the non-marital relationship, two persons can simply part if problems arise. "There is no test of the individuals if there is no commitment," say Smith, a recognized national authority in marriage counseling. "However, we do offer counseling to unmarried couples as well, but inte...

oooooooo oooo The Jewish American Prince Does His Thing [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 3 April 1975
oooooooo oooo The Jewish American Prince Does His Thing Lenny Bruce: by fred prouser Lenny Bruce espoused the philosophy that there is only what IS. The trouble with that particular notion during the Sixties was that in fact reality wasn't pleasant. Viet Nam, Civil rights and a myraid of other problems faced the nation. They were unpleasant and Lenny Bruce rubbed the Nation's nose in these problems. In the liner notes from Bruce's Berkely concert, Ralph G lea son summarizes the essentiality of Lenny Bruce: "Lenny Bruce was the prisoner of truth and no society will tolerate the voice which tells itthe truth about itself because to face that truth is to admit it and be forced to change". Bruce's Berkeley concert was the first concert performance issued in its unexpurgated form. It is an expression of one man's mind flowing effortlessly to a very receptive audience of lawyers, authors, poets and professors. This is not to say that Bruce aimed his rambling discourses to an esote...
WW* MarijuanayM^x y J Use ^w " Epidemic Proportions " [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 3 April 1975
WW* MarijuanayM^x y J Use ^w " Epidemic Proportions " / ^fSsL t.A«4/ >« A ~ Vv ,1 . In a recent report issued by the governor's council on Drug and Alcohol Abuse entitled" Marijuana: A Discussion Paper," a majority of Pennsylvanians polled by the Council favored stricter laws governing the use of marijuana. On 1,200 persons polled, 57 percent favored stronger criminal measures against marijuana useage and of these 57 percent, more than half were "not at all familiar" with the present laws regarding marijuana. Contrasting this opinion the majority of people who were aware of the implications of the current laws felt that marijuana penalties should remain the same or become more lenient. Describing the report as "the first in-depth account of this problem in the Commonwealth," Dr. Richard E. Horman outlandishly protrubulates his bias against the marijuana scene in Pennsylvania. This so called "problem" will be the focal point for public hearings this Spring. Wow, do the...
Message From The Pres [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 3 April 1975
Message From The Pres OSbVALD I am deeply concerned at the harsh implications for Penn State of the budget recommendations presented in the Governor's budget message for 1975-76. I thorougly understand the status of the economy and the strained estimates of revenues in the Commonwealth; and Penn State, of course, expects to carry its appropriate share of adjustments to live with the economic realities. However, the Governor's budget allocations for Penn State of $123.6 million for 15 months is actually less than $100 million on a 12-month basis whereas $114.5 million was requested as absolutely essential for the coming 12-month period. A realistic and stern analysis of the Governor's proposal contains four most serious implications for Penn State. First, the State's research support to the University is cut by 20 per cent, a slash which will require reductions in the research programs in food, energy, coal, oil, transportation and other areas at a time when society's needs...

Nytza was used as a drawing card on a predominately male campus". Commenting on the charges by DeLong, Prouser said, "I just think the charges were poorly written. Who determines 'bad taste'? 'Slanderous implications' is vague". As for the Reader's complaint, Prouser stated, "We want a meeting of the Board and are expecting it. We just want to ...
