This Week In The SGA [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 October 1972
This Week In The SGA by Robert W. Bonaker Monday's Student Government Senate meeting began immediately with the committee reports as there was much to be accomplished during the evening. On the agenda were budget approvals for campus organizations and constitutional revisions. Treasurer Tom Dixon submitted the proposed budget for the SGA for 1972-73, as proposed by the Finance Committee. After minimal debate, the budget was approved by the Senate. There were questions about the amounts allocated to the Black Student Union, Delta Tau Kappa, the XGrs, and the Young Democrats, but when it came time to vote the motion to accept the budget passed by 8 for, none against, 4 abstentions. Dixon stressed that the total funding provided for expenses amounted to a little over $13,000, while budget requests from all the organizations totaled over $32,000. Consequently, all organizations received severe cuts in the amount they asked for. The SGA will generate more funds during the cours...

fROM YOUR EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 October 1972
fROM YOUR EDITOR Sounds Familiar Only a week and a half has passed since the start of the term and already I have heard an all too familiar line coming from numerous students. "There's nothing to do." and "Why isn't there a larger and more varied program of activities?" and still another, "I wish someone would get some better activities around here.". Well for those of you who seem to be doing all the griping, let me make a suggestion; instead of spending your time finding fault with campus activities, take part in the organizations which can work for the betterments you seek. The problem that has existed in the past and still seems prevalent is that there is a tremendous surplus of those who complain and a serious shortage of people to do the work. The sad part of the problem with the campus complainers is that when confronted with the question, What do you think should be done?", or, "Why don't you work for the changes you seek?", there seems to be time for nothing but e...

Chinese Wife First To Take Capitol Actuarial Test [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 October 1972
Chinese Wife First To Take Capitol Actuarial Test Reprinted from the SUNDAY PATRIOT-NEWS The first student to take the first of a series of actuarial examinations the first time it was offered at Capitol Campus is a slim, petite, almond-eyed wife of a faculty member and the mother of a three-year-old son. Mrs. Hsi Sheng Nieh passed the test on her first try - which is quite unusual since die passing ratio is one out of three. Actuarial science is in the realm of higher mathematics; the application of theories of probability and statistics and the principles of finance to problems of insurance, pension, social population and related studies. The actuary is a mathematician, statistician and economist all rolled into one — a dispassionate speciality, its exponents say, requiring keen interdisciplinary training and tremendous application. This doesn't frighten the soft-spoken Mrs. Nieh. Math and chemistry were her best subjects, she says, when she was a school girl in Hong Kong....
