The resolution, passed by the Penn State Board of Trustees on September 19, provides for a plan to withdraw $6.3 million invested in U.S. companies unless they voluntarily withdraw from South Africa by June 30, 1988.

Has Anyone Seen My CCSG? [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 October 1987

Has Anyone Seen My CCSG? By Todd M. Hammaker I've got a problem. My CCSG was gone. First, I was told, "Todd. You've got CCSG, let's make something of it." Great, I thought, but just what is a CCSG? I had very little to go on. I did know that it had something to do with University Park. Well, at least that it "happened" at University Park. I asked some of the administrators. Some didn't know. Some didn't want to talk about it. Others said, "It's what you want it to be." As unusual as it may seem, this didn't help me. So I tried another approach. I searched the SGA files. If you think thermodynamics is scarv. trv eoinsr ihrousih the SGA files. After a long and exhausting search, I found a constitution for CCSG. In fact, I" found two constitutions (different years). I was overcome with joy. Finally I would know what CCSG is all aobut. Staring into the constitution, I first found the "NAME," "This organization shall be known as the Council of Common weal lh Student Governments o...

Students-- New Market for Credit Cards [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 October 1987

Students-- New Market for Credit Cards . PSS,STTT...How'd you like to own this $600 pair of genuine snakeskin boots? Want to know how to buy these "Bruce Willis shades? Need some quick cash? Although they're not selling these products, banks and major credit card companies are using similar sales pitches in hopes of turning college students into customers. While it was once nearly impossible for a student to qualify for a credit card, visit any college union or bookstore these days and you'll see MasterCard, VISA, or American Express posters inviting everyone to take home an application. According to one bank official, some 14,000 financial institutions across the country issue credit cards, and many of them are now looking for a younger clientele. Why are they in such hot pursuit of students? "Because students graduate and become real people," says Noel Capon, director of Columbia University's Center for Research in the Marketing of Financial Services. "They're attemtping to ...

Step Taken Far Telecommunications System [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 October 1987

Step Taken Far Telecommunications System Photo by Kyle Weaver John Joseph adjusts controls in the television studio I ByJoeKupec The Olmsted Building has a new, high-tech, sculpture--a satellite dish, along the road to the parking lot. The presence of this High-Tech Icon indicates the arrival of Penn State Harrisburg's participation in university and worldwide telecommunications education. Satellite dishes act as the down link, receiving signals transmitted to a satellite from a land-based station. Presently, all campuses in the Penn-State system are installing dishes and running cable to classrooms intended for use in teleconferencing. According to Dr. William Mahar, chairman of the Humanities Division, the dish is only the first part of a program to provide all classrooms in the Olmsted Building with telecommunications capability. At this time, rooms in the east wing of the Olmsted Building are tied into the satellite dish. This links the television studio, Humanities ...

Autumn Leaves Bring Back Memories [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 October 1987

Autumn Leaves Bring Back Memories By Michele Hart My mother always loved fall. Every Sunday afternoon in late September and October she would pack the three of us kids and my dad into our station wagon so we could drive around for hours "enjoying the colors of the leaves." I don't really remember seeing much in the way of leaves on those afternoon drives, I was always too busy torturing my little sister or being tortured by my older brother. We would sit in the back seat and pull each other's hair, get into slap fights, and worst of all move into each other's "space." I can hear myself now: "Mommy! Patrick has his finger on my part of the seat. Make him move it or I'll bite him." My mother would patiently turn around and look pleadingly at my brother. "Why do you always do this to her? Please sit on your side of the seat and leave her alone." The discipline over, Mom would turn her head back to the window and watch the scenery go by. Every once in awhile we would hear her ...

She Really Did It [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 October 1987

She Really Did It By F. J. Patton (XGI mascot) On Saturday, August 29,1 was at the Capital College Leadership Conference fishbowl when Dr. Ruth Leventhal said she was interested in the campus' student organization. She also expressed the desire to be invited to student meetings. Of course she said that her busy schedule would limit just what she could attend. Immediately after hearing this, I quickly searched the room for Butch Lutz, president of the XGIs (Chi Gamma Iota). We smiled at each other knowing what the other was thinking: The XGIs would be more than happy to accommodate the provost. Why not the XGIs? Wasn't this the same group that last year presented the provost with a candy rat for winning a raffle (she didn't know her name had been honorarily entered). I, and probably a majority of the students in attendance, thought that Dr. Leventhal's remarks were genuine but in all actuality believed that the chances of the provost attending a student organization's meeting w...

It Smacks of Reverse Discrimination [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 October 1987

It Smacks of Reverse Discrimination Dear Editor, I hear so much talk regarding discrimination against women. However, at our campus I have been witnessing reverse discrimination. I realize that our provost is a woman and may not be aware of the difficulties that men experience as a result of the problem. The men on this campus are still expected to do a juggling act with their books when visiting die restroom, unless they are lucky enough to get the natural urge while passing the lion near the main entrance, for just across the hall does exist a singular men's room furnished with a small table permitting male students and faculty to place their books upon while "doin what comes naturly." Please take my word for it when I tell you that men need their hands to assist them in those quarters. Did you ever try to unzip a dress, ladies, while holding an armful of books? We cannot hold our books on our laps all the time. We just weren't created to deal with the situation that way...

On Being a Woman [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 October 1987

On Being a Woman by Vickt Koon I can clearly remember being a teenager and anticipating the day I would be allowed to shave my legs. Other than the desire to be old enough to wear nylon stockings, it was the single thing that I wanted most in those prepubescent days. The TV commercials for Lady Schick razors were the culprit. I used to watch them in awe: A woman languished in a tub brimming with bubbles with one leg poised effortlessly in the air. With an air of elegance and serenity, she glided the razor over her leg. Her once human-looking limb became a work of art! At last the day arrived for the sculpting to be done. I couldn't quite get the bathtub as full of bubbles as I felt it should be, but my mother's Lady Schick was ready to do the job. I leaned back and brought my leg out of the water. It didn't feci right. On TV it looked not only natural, but graceful. But actually doing it felt awkward. I assumed it was because I wasn't as old as the woman in the commercial. Awk...

Reserved Library Desk Causes Jealousy [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 October 1987

Reserved Library Desk Causes Jealousy Dear Editor, The library staff assigned me a study carrel. That act seems to have puzzled some and outraged others. The notice reserving the carrel frequently has been ripped from its place. At other times it has been covered with comments and questions. I'd like to answer those scrawled messages. "Isn't that special!!!" read one note. No, it isn't special that I have a reserved carrel, just different. Another observer drew an arrow aimed at my name and demand: "Who is he?" A third advised me, "Be realistic. I pay tuition." Kant maintained that justice consists of treating similar persons similarly in similar circumstances. That makes sense to me, but it does not follow that we ought to treat different persons in different circumstances all the same. If you pass your neighbor's house and see that it is on fire, it is just to throw water on the flames. On the other hand, if you sail past your neighbor's boat and see that it is sinking, it...

Hate, Bigotry & Racism [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 October 1987

Hate, Bigotry & Racism f ; ; ^ Jan Travers/Editor Isn't it amazing that in today's society there can be an organization like the Ku Klux Klan? The Klan, which met last weekend in Ephrata, serves as a reminder to us all of the hate, bigotry and racism still alive in America. However, the Klan's meeting locally had positive consequences as well. Where but in America could a group which stands against our very fiber be allowed to assemble to exercise their freedom of speech. The good news is the Klan's membership continues to fall to such an extent that groups like the Urban League of Harrisburg and NAACPdecided to ignore the whole event, refusing to take part in counterdemonstrations. Estimates put Klan membership at around 4,500, a 14 year low. The better news was the number of white people who came out for the counterdemonstrations. Many braved the cold, rainy weather to send the message that they disapproved and were appalled at the meeting. Maybe things are beginni...

The Hanoi Hilton [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 October 1987

The Hanoi Hilton The Hanoi Hilton is a belated valentine to the POWs of Vietnam. A valentine still largely undelivered. The American Legion, along with some other Vets groups, maintains that this Cannon production has been backdoored out of national distribution because of pressure from the Hollywood establishment. These groups allege that it is only because of "incorrect politics" that this film has not been made available to a wider viewing audience. I'm going to tell you up front-I think they may be correct. Vietnamese captors ease off on the prisoners, the scenes degenerate into a series of vignettes reminiscent of Stalag 17.) The most powerful scenes in the film are not those of physical torture by the Vietnamese though; but those relatively quiet scenes, turning on the idea of betrayal. When the first American who is tortured breaks, he is devastated, not by the torture, but in finding out that he is the first to break. When the weak character portrayed by Paul La Mat ...
