Unity Stressed on Martin Luther King Day [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
Unity Stressed on Martin Luther King Day By Michele E. Hart In a speech given January 19 to commemorate the birth of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Harrisburg Urban League Deputy Director James Jones cited the need for unity in today's society. "One word, unity, was at the core of King's beliefs," Jones said, but it is a goal we "are still reaching for in 1987." Society is still divided by many things, according to Jones, who spoke to an audience of nearly 30 two weeks ago in the Black Cultural Arts Center. To bring society together, Jones feels we must find a common ground. That ground, he said, "is the equality of all human beings." To reach the goal of unity, in Jones' view, "People must raise their consciousness above hatred, racism, bigotry, and prejudice and identify in people positive qualities that allow for co-existence." Society also needs to have "strong hope, faith, and love for each other," he said. Hope, faith, and love vrete three wor...
A Question of Integrity [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
A Question of Integrity Sally is taking a test and cannot answer the main question. Now she regrets not having studied longer than an hour. She twirls her pencil, stares at the graffiti written on her desk, then looks around the room. The professor is reading a book. Casually glancing at her neighbor's paper, Sally sees that he is answering the main question. She looks away, then back again. She cannot fail this test! John is taking a management course and must give a presentation. He decides to reuse a presentation that he had given last semester in a public policy class. John does not tell his management professor that he had given the presentation once before. Although Sally has obviously committed a misdeed, did John? Surprisingly, the answer is yes. Both have violated Penn State's policy of academic integrity. According to Policies and Rules for Students. 1986-87, "Academic integrity is the pursuit of scholarly activity free from fraud and deception and is an educationa...

So, in an effort to give student leaders a chance to improve their leading skills, Student Activities, in cooperation with SGA, offered the twice a year leadership conference January 24, in the CUB. The seminar, opened to resident assistants and anyone who participated in student activities, provided a full day of activity designed to help the students become more effective leaders. Dr. Terrell Jones,assistant director of student life at University Park, was the keynote .speaker, and he impressed upon the audience the need to evaluate the people they are dealing with.

"To make people want to continue interest in an organization, you must include them in the orocess of making the rules," Jones added. He went on to warn that assumptions should not be made about people's understanding. Instead, make all instructio...
Baja Project Is In Motion [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
Baja Project Is In Motion By Joe Kupec What has one cylinder, must accomodate a single operator ranging in size from 6'3" and 250 lbs. to 5'4" and 100 lbs. and be built by students from the ground up within a budget of less than $1,500? It's the Penn State Baja Project. According to Jon Bredbenner, a MET associated with the project, Baja Vehicle Project is well on its way to redesigning a new model for competition in May 1987. The existing baja vehicle, frequently used for recruiting and open houses, is too slow to compete in the upcoming competition. The goal of the project is redesign and build a new baja vehicle by March. The time table calls for testing and last minute modifications in April and running in the May competition. Originally conceived as a senior design project several years ago, the baja project is now open to all majors on campus. "It's a great design experience for engineering majors, but everyone is welcome to join," said Bredbenner. "The project is a fu...

Take The Challenge To Use The Writing Lab [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
Take The Challenge To Use The Writing Lab ByRondaGraby The Capital College Writing Lab is located in W242 of the Olmsted building. The lab provides service for all undergraduate and graduate students in the programs on campus. Each semester, all entering undergraduate students are required to complete a one-tothree page writing sample, which is evaluated b y two people from the Humanities division, either faculty members or graduate students. The samples are reviewed for organization, clar-ity, coherence, and development of ideas, as well as grammar and structure. The results of the sample are sent to the student and to the academic program in which the student is enrolled. Each sample is then filed in the lab, and the results become a part of the student's permanent school record. After students have received their results, those with marginal or unacceptable scores are referred to the lab for help. Other students are referred to the lab by faculty members or other students...
Does Alcohol Run Your Life? [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
Does Alcohol Run Your Life? We are planning a special section in a future issue to coincide with a "Know when to Say When" campaign on responsible consumption of alcohol. We are looking for alcohol related stories. If you have a story you would like to share with the student body, please stop by room W-129 or call 944-4970 to discuss it with me. If you would rather not reveal yourself to your peers, anonymity can be guaranteed. Alcohol education is something we all say we are for, but when it is presented in a sterile, generic format, we just ignore it. By relating stories of Penn State students, we hope to show you real people with real problems. Please take the time to share your story with us. If you prefer not to write the story yourself, a staff member would be happy help. J a n T r a v e r s _;_

We Need Child Care Facilities [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
We Need Child Care Facilities AsMang AiroTOid There are probably as many reasons against child care facilities at Penn State University at Harrisburg, as against any other program which benefits only a small group, particularly liability insurance costs and start-up expenses. But, this can be said about a lot of present campus activities, like sports for instance, that we all accept without question. Now before you turn off, I'm not against sports. On the contrary, I would endorse mandatory athletic requirements for graduation. But, let's face it, few people are going to refuse coming to Penn State, Harrisburg because there is no sports program. Realistically though, there are parents who put off, some forever, coming to school because they can make no arrangements for children. How many times have you seen parents bringing children to classes? There are times when you have no choice. A child care facility would alleviate these problems at the same time as providing an in-...
Do You Think There Should Be Child Care Facilities on Campus? [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
Do You Think There Should Be Child Care Facilities on Campus? Anthony Centurione Accounting "Sure, and the state should pay for it since Penn State has such a high tuition compared to other state schools. It's the least they can do." Al Kieres Finance "Yes, if children aren't properly supervised. they will grow up and hit you with an axe." Don Milller Accounting "I think that child care is important but I also think that it should be paid for by those who use it and not every student on campus." Photos by Sylvia Johnson Interviews by Al Pincus Amy Azar Finance "Yes, but only the people who use is should fund it I wouldn't be willing to pay part of the fee myself, but it would give women more opportunity."
The Lion's Den Exposed [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
The Lion's Den Exposed I have just finished a comprehensive investigation into the workings of the Lion's Den. For those of you who may not know, the Lion's Den holds itself out to be a small snack bar, but in reality it is the keystone of an international cartel. I have been given an exclusive interview with the head of Food Services for the entire Penn State complex. This man, Sal Monella, is in charge of all food that passes through the university and is actually the second most important man in the whole university system, behind only Joe Paterno. The following are excerpts from the interview: Cynicism & Humor Alan Pincus A.P.~Tell us something about the workings of the Lion's Den. Sal-Most people don't know that we make no profit from the education end of Penn State's operation. All the profits come from the bookstore and the Lion's Den. The finest MBA and doctoral students from Main campus are recruited to make the crucial decisions necessary to keep this mon...
... It's How You Play the Game [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
... It's How You Play the Game By Vicki Koon On Saturday, January 26, 1987 PSU at Harrisburg hosted a Leadership Conference for campus club members. The objective details of the conference are taken up by another article in this paper; here I would like to discuss my personal feelings and experience of that conference. After a brief morning workshop seminar (mine was on Time Management, and was very helpful) we groggily regathered in the Cub Room to be divided up into five groups of eight people each. Dr. Terrell Jones of University Park gave us the rules while a small group of observers gathered around us to watch. The rules of the game were simply to "win as much money as you can." There were two ways to win money: get everyone in your group of eight to vote the same way (y), or make everyone in your group think you were going to vote the same way (y) and then instead, vote against them (x). A "y" win was honest and compassionate, but modest; an "x" win was selfish, but br...
Issue Reemerges [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
Issue Reemerges By Thalia Cook The ugly subject of abortion keeps coming up in my everyday walk of life. It amazes me how doctors can do sonograms on pregnant women who are at various stages of their preg-nancies and then go to another room and do an abortion on a pregnant woman at the same stage. The picture produced by a sonogram allows the medical doctor to see, without a doubt, the baby that is growing inside the mother. By the time a baby is 18 to 25 days old, the heart is already beating and can be seen on the sonogram. This takes place long before the mother is even sure she is pregnant. Brain waves can be recorded from the growing baby at the age of 45 days. The baby's fingerprints are also formed. The thyroid and adrenal glands are functioning by the 9th and 10th week. The baby can squint, swallow, and move his tongue, and the sex hormones are already present. At 12-13 weeks the baby has fingernails, sucks his thumb and can recoil from pain. When the 4th month is fi...
Student Musician Entertains in Gallery Lounge [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
Student Musician Entertains in Gallery Lounge By Sharon Olmstead The Gallery Lounge was quietly filling up with students, faculty, and staff on January 25 for the noon-time concert. An attractive, darkblonde guy in the front row near the grand piano broke the silence. "I hope this guy's good!" he said, laughing. Others who knew him laughed too. He was Rich Carpenter, the pianist scheduled for the concert. He seated himself at the piano, and the music flowed. "I can't say what takes over," he says with sparkling brown eyes. "Especially when I get into a deep song-but it's like my hands are a different person," says the 23-year-old musician with enthusiasm. - "I'm so relaxed when I'm done. It's sort of like selfhypnosis," he says. Carpenter, who is from Long Island, New York, entertained the large crowd with selections ranging from Beethoven, Broadway hit tunes, to one of his own compositions. He concluded with a song Frank Sinatra made popular, "My ^Nav." "I like almost any k...
