'The Road Not Taken...' [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 8 June 1975
'The Road Not Taken...' A Message from Dean Wolf Graduation time is a time of reflection for both students and faculty, for institutions and individuals. Apropos of this moment is an expression centuries old which reads "if you don't know where youre going, any road will take you there." A favorite poem of mine uses the road metaphor in a more hopeful context, however. And it is that poem which I would like to use as the theme for these comments to the eighth graduating class of the Capitol Campus of the Pennsylvania State University. The poem is Robert Frost's "The Road not Taken" and it concludes with these memorable lines: "Two roads diverged in a wood, and l-l took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference." For Frost, the question was whether or not to live the life of a poet, a choice which would affect the rest of his days. Now you may question the validity of these lines from mass, urban, technological society, but give them some thought. Even i...
Remembering ! Capitol [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 8 June 1975
Remembering ! Capitol eW JVofe f kom woe <5<u6w< In my last literary adventure, 1 attacked the abyssmai r low points of Capitol life. I did it because they were things that needed to be said; feelings currently floating aroung. However, in the years ahead, what will really matter to us and me are the memories: the images that represent past realities in our minds. The memories of Capitol aren't really so bad. My two years at Capitol have indeed been marked with an underlying sense of futility. But they have also been marked by a sometimes irrational sense of hope. It seems we were always hoping for the better, and when that hope materialized into action, some things actually happened. The happenings weren't always the right remedy, but the point is that they did occur. Anyway, Capitol has been blessed with a core of students, however small, who really care about what happens to them and their peers. To them, we should all give our thanks for taking the t...
Late Night Notes [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 8 June 1975
Late Night Notes by Fred Prouser It's now the morning after the night before. Sitting last night with 3 friends, I began to realize that the real world is not all its cracked up to be. The work-a-day world is full of frustrations - and there is no comparison between the security of the collegiate experience and the uncertainty of the 9 to 5 grind. In the last READER, the editor blasted the institution we know as Capitol Campus. Perhaps by now he has reconsidered his thinking, but honestly, where could you carry a full load of courses and work on a college newspaper - putting more time and effort into getting the newspaper out than on the academics. It's possible at Capitol, because this writer's professors were patient and understanding when projects and reports were not in on time. They acknowledged that working on the READER was part of my education too and agreed to defer a good deal of course requirements until this summer. Any other institution would not be as flexible....
Farewell, Capitol [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 8 June 1975
Farewell, Capitol by Jimmy Olson J\MK1 ' 0*-*°** Hello friends, Jimmy here. Your All American world combater of mediocrity and disdainer of public taste has a few kind words before I leave. As you may well know, this is my last in-person letter to you. Next year I am sending my thoughts of anti-knowledge in absentia from University Park, the big school in the sky. My friends, the only way I can communicate my departing notes are not as Jimmy Olson, the international figure, but as Gary Macchioni, the man. So here I really am. This past year has been quite an experience. I understand that some of my material was considered blasphemous and objectionable. Some of my friends were upset because I have said that God had V.D. You all have some very valid points there. To insinuate such beliefs is indeed crazy. But, I just had to make a point about how 4 thought people were getting carried away with the mechanics of religion, while love and empathy for fellow men and women was lac...

Dugout Diction [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 8 June 1975
Dugout Diction tonnie mac The winningest pitcher in the rotation was fleet-footed Ed Stish. An outfielder with speed who could handle the mound duties won two games in three starts for 21 innings of action. Ed will be back next year to get the diamond dusters off to a bicenntenial blast. The relief pitching duties were shared by Steve Renwick and Tom McMillen. But that amounted to only four innings plus the one inning handled by B. Greenleaf. In rounding out the many chores on the diamond, Bill Nolan (perfect attendance record) played short stop and bunted into a triple play master-minded by the coach. Sorry Bill, the coach didn't know the cloud pitch was coming!! Rick Lillie took over third base after Tom Gormley broke his arm early in season. Rick is famous for his javelin style throws from third base. The junior tri captains will return to the outfield for 76 along with Fred Clark and his split second "delay" moves. Catching chores were shared by Hess, Renwick and Sam C...
The Evolution Of The C. C. Reader [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 8 June 1975
The Evolution Of The C. C. Reader Student newspapers at Capitol Campus have had a short, but colorful life. Capitol Campus began its life as a University in 1966. The first student newspaper appeared on January 19, 1967 as a bunch of mimeographed sheets stapled together. It was called the Roundtable and it was "organized on a strictly independent basis", meaning it had no real affiliation with the Campus and very little money with which to operate. It had no regular printing schedule, and it appeared infrequently (the second issue is dated April 24, '67). The Roundtable was replaced early in 1968 by another mimeographed paper called the VOX. The reason for the demise of the Roundtable, from what we can gather from our available records, was a dispute over its editorial policy. The VOX was initiated as an alternative to the Roundtable, and replaced it in February of '68. The VOX, more conservative than its predecessor, met an obscure end sometime later in 1968. On Sept. 20, '68...

Reed Speaks [Newspaper Article] — C.C. Reader — 8 June 1975
Reed Speaks Cont'd, from p. i " when a university or college is faced with a monetary shortage the burden is first passed onto the student in the form of higher tuition and cutbacks in student employment. The institution itself is the last to 'feel the "crunch". He wants to make it clear that this was the only reason why he voted for the $5.5 million amendment to the deficiency appropriation for public institutions on June 3. He stresses that the passage of this amendment is not precedent setting and that, "I have no intention of engaging in this practice on an annual basis." Mr. Reed said that it is "nonsense" if the colleges and universities in this state think they'll get their money through deficiency appropriations next year at this same time. Representative Reed said the governor's effort to revamp and review through the Businessman's Taskforce the manner in which a lot of our colleges and universities are operating is long overdue. Mr. Reed feels that now more than ev...

On Saturday, April 12, the Pittsburgh Partfhers invaded Penn State Nittany Lion Country for the Blue-Gold game at Hershey stadium. The Nittany Lion (Paul Skodacek) was upset and counterattacked the Pitt thrust with a dozen of Blue & White supporting fans, including the Stompin' Cheerleader, Al Kerchner, and a portion of the Cotton Bowl Regiment featuring Mr. Coors himself, Gid Wray. A small segment of the XGI Fraternity group paraded the inside of the field with signs following their leader Mr. Nittany Lion. Pittsburgh's representative cheerleaders were put to the test as the Lion Country cheerleader called or screamed out counter-cheers, and eventually embarrassed them off the field. For some unknown reason, the area where the Penn State fans were seated became more and more vacant as the game pr...
