harrisburg Six"Rally [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 January 1971
harrisburg Six"Rally from the Harrisburg Peace Group "We are a group of radical Catholics who have identified ourselves with non-violent disruptive activities to focus attention of institutions and people on alternatives and options for peace." (Father Phil Linden on the peace group to which the Harrisburg Six belong). Harrisburg is the scene of new indictments against leaders of the peace movement. This time it is not campus rioters, Weathermen, or violent protestors being indicted, but priests and nuns whose philosophy excludes violence, whose philosophy is the development of the brotherhood of man guided by the principles of non-violence and the sanctity of human life. This group of peacemakers, known as the Harrisburg Six, have expended their lives questioning the seeming injustice in a system which permits economic exploitation of underdeveloped countries and murders an Asian people under the guise of "preserving freedom". Officials of that same system accuse these six ...
SOMETHINGTO THINK ABOUT [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 January 1971
SOMETHINGTO THINK ABOUT EDITORIAL Finally, after over three-hundred years, the Catholic church is beginning to react to American denial of it's authority. Through the use of a Vatican commando force, composed of hand-picked priest and nun fanatics, the Papal threat nearly succeeded in cold-bloodedly destroying a government heating system. But thanks to the dogged efforts of our nation's security force the cloth of secrecy was removed in time to prevent the deed and save a Presidential aid from being carried off to a clerical hideout. Where was the headquarters of this cell of subversives that so plagued J. Edgar Hoover? Predictably it was found in that mystery clouded fortress of Lewisburg Federal Penitentiary. Collared by the government investigators were three priests, a former priest, and a nun. Also mentioned was a Pakistani alien (the CIA is investigating the possibilities of a Hindu-Catholic alliance against America and the Free World). What was the goal that could d...
Where Will We Put It? — [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 January 1971
Where Will We Put It? — EDITORIAL Where is the Experimental institution that would make the Penn State system famous? It's certainly not at Capitol, where programs are antiquated and useless. The responsibility of the University is to prepare the student for involvement in society, not the society of 1950, but the society of 1970. Massive graduate unemployment is not a confirmation of the University's goals, yet the system doesn't change. Why not? Why aren't progressive structural changes being made in the administrative and curricular sections of the University? Why aren't students considered responsible in planning the programs which up until now have found them jobs outside of their field if they were lucky? Why is it that nearly every other campus in the country is realizing the necessity of a student voice in administrative affairs, while our University suffocates us with an impotent student government? It must be realized by the administration and faculty alike that ...
Head Shop News [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 January 1971
Head Shop News Lee A. Nell Remember the faculty-student meeting last term? There was some good stuff in that meeting. So, on February 2, at 4:00, in E330, there will be another general encounter. Come in and bring a friend. Come to think of it—bring an enemy, too. On Monday, February 1st, the first of the NET shows will be shown on the TV sets in the student lounges. This one will be excerpts from a 16-hour encounter group session involving drugs. The report is that some good things happen on the show. Maybe the show will spark some talk on Tuesday, maybe not. Do you want something to happen here that is not or does not happen? Is something happening that you would like to see stopped? Would you like to turn a student/faculty member on? Off?? Tuesday, February 2,4 p.m. in E330.
THE COLUMN [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 January 1971
THE COLUMN An Elaboration, by Terry Wimmer Many members of the Capitol Community have approached me during the past week concerning the announcement of my resignation from the Senate. The comments, as previously mentioned were many and widely diverse in essence. One of the comments was directed to the so-called "threats" that the Black Student Union were to have made if Miss Patti Patterson would have been fired as Treasurer of the SGA. A student and member of the BSU felt that it was unfair of me to generalize and say that the entire membership of the BSU were to issue these "threats." Before I ever decided to resign from the Senate, I discussed the entire matter with Leroy Howell, President of the Black Student Union. Mr. Howell informed me that he knew nothing about "a threat or threats" and had only heard through the grapevine that there was "something going on in the Senate." I apologize to those members of the BSU who misinterpreted my comments. As one can easily see...

IT'SC-O-L-DOUT THERE [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 January 1971
IT'SC-O-L-DOUT THERE Winter Wonderland Capitol Campus Style-And this is just the beginning! by Roger Hawkins What about transportation for students on campus? Has it long been forgotten? It would be most appreciated if the school would think positively about running a bus on campus to transport the students living in Meade Heights and the Dormitories to and from school. The cold days ahead and the icy pavements are not a pleasant situation to meet. It seems to me that running a bus on campus would be in «the best safety interest of the students and the school also. Which would the school rather be confronted with, a bus to provide transportation for on-campus students, or a suit from a student who slipped on a piece of ice and broke his back? In view of the hazardous weather conditions and the increasing doctor bills from colds, spre throats, and frostbite, and as I already mentioned, the icy streets which are not safe for anyone to walk on, the school ought to make every ...
