60T THE GUP V [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 January 1971
60T THE GUP V by Lee A. Nell Got the clap? Bad Breath? B.O.? Are you bothered by excess stomach acid? Acne? Zits? Headaches? Neuritis? Neuralgia? Fine. Go down to the nearest Rea and Derricks and buy your way to pleasant living. However, if you are bothered by paying $7.50 per term to park a car for classes and you don't know what to do, keep reading. We've found the answer. Is Lee Levan a sniveling idiot? Is he a tyrant? Do you hate Professor X, but have to take him anyway? Does Twyla Brown pass you in the hall and not say "Hi"? (There must be someone she doesn't know.) Does the food in the dorms stick in your throat? Do your next-door neighbors keep you up nights? You may be waiting for the answer. Here it is. Bitch. That's right. BITCH! BITCH! BITCH! One of the few pleasures we have left is the plain, ordinary bitch. Throw open your back door and scream. Write a letter to your Congressman. Tell the professor where to get off. Somewhere in your head there is a bitch waitin...
Critic's Notebook ZABRISKI POINT or THE DECLINE AND FALL OF MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI AS PERFORMED BY A CREW OF RANK AMATEURS [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 January 1971
Critic's Notebook ZABRISKI POINT or THE DECLINE AND FALL OF MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI AS PERFORMED BY A CREW OF RANK AMATEURS Reviewed by William M. Sloane It would be difficult to isolate the absolute Worst Film of 1970, for such would involve hours of agony passed in sleazy drive-ins as Vincent Price turns a laser beam on Elvis Presley making love to Annette Funicello. Let us then consider one sub-category: The Most Arrogant Film of the Year, Zabriski Point. Inexperienced actors and actresses having been handed leading roles, it would have been less insulting to us and to them had the director at least tried to exact a semblance of characterization. In this case Signor Antonioni achieves a passable line-reading, though at times we could have sworn he was holding up cue cards. Several scenes are direct plagiarisms from other, better movies, but most are unfortunately original. "Let a pair of kids cavort in the desert," says this brand of streamy-consciousness, "and have the ca...

TEACHING IN MIDDLETOWN On the Soot! [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 27 January 1971
TEACHING IN MIDDLETOWN On the Soot! by Superteacher The faculty and administration of Middletown High School have taken six Capitol Campus Student Teachers under their wings...in everything from unhooking Annie Ferrino's dress from her coat to catching Tony McGovern's falling Coke bottle. Ed Hoffman seems extremely hung-up with Dangling Participles and Mr. Farmer his co-op. Becky Myers has just enough knowledge of French as well as English, and it seems her co-op teaches both! Mr. Allan Gallager can't decide between baked macaroni and his sixth period class. Mr. Bianchi enjoys coffee breaks while he hears about "long hair" and the next class. Tony likes to use the phrase, "Shut up!", to his class. He thinks these are the only two words to use...and he's right! Miss Ferrino, who very rarely answers to her name after being "Annie" all her life, is not knocking over as many desks this week, and is getting used to her high heels. A surprise visit from the Grahams on Wednesday ca...

STUDENTS PLAN STATEWIDE LOBBY [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 4 February 1971
STUDENTS PLAN STATEWIDE LOBBY Reprinted from On Campus PennsylvanilPs college students have launched a special campaign to organize their own statewide lobby group to work with state government and the legislature on matters of higher education. Student leaders from every college, university, and junior college in the state have been invited to attend an organizational convocation March 5, 6, and 7 at Penn State. Organizers of the convocation also hope to have Gov. Milton Shapp or one of his representatives and key members of the Pennsylvania legislature as guest speakers. "The idea of the lobby is to form a group that can convey the true sentiments and ideas of the college students of Pennsylvania", says James Antoniono, president of the USG, and one of the originators of the convocation. They include the state's master plan for higher education and Gov. Shapp's position on it; lobbying techniques and the effects of mass action; tuition and the financial situation of higher...
New Degree Program proposed [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 4 February 1971
New Degree Program proposed by Tom Hagan "The people of the United States possess a country blessed with great natural beauty and enormous natural resources, they earn the highest per capita income of any nation in the world and have the highest standard of living,-and they have a political system which guarantees their freedom and the most powerful military force on earth to protect it. Yet with all these benefits, they seem almost bent upon destroying themselves and their land. Ecological exploitation, urban decay, and deterioration in the quality of human existence proceed apace, feeding upon greed, apathy, hatred, prejudice, fear, and insecurity. Conditions are worst in the most densely populated centers and if predictions that the population will grow by 100 million in the next thirty years are correct, only a massive remedial effort can prevent national calamity. A comprehensive program to improve the quality of living is long overdue and further procrastination can on...
PARKIH6 ISSUES EXPLAINED [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 4 February 1971
PARKIH6 ISSUES EXPLAINED There has been in the last couple weeks a great deal of discussion both verbal and in print concerning the parking violations being issued on campus. Some of the discontent is based on wild rumors and not on facts, some of it is based on the displeasure of having to pay money for fines when it could be spent elsewhere and as always, some of the discontent is perhaps justified. The offices of the Vehicle Registrar, Security, and Student Affairs have been working jointly to try and improve the situations which justifiably have led to discontent. It is virtually impossible to alleviate the displeasure incurred in having to pay parking fines because as long as persons violate the regulations they must pay the fines. The purpose of this article is to present some of the facts in order to dispel the discontent based on rumors. The Vehicle Registrar has recently completed a report for the Fall Term 1970. During that term there were 1300 vehicles (4-wheel an...
Famed Vinie Burrows to Appear in Walk Together Children [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 4 February 1971
Famed Vinie Burrows to Appear in Walk Together Children On Monday, February 8, 1971 the Capitol Campus Artist-Lecture Series will present Miss Vinie Burrows in a program entitled Walk Together Children-the black scene in prose, poetry and song. Miss Burrows whose one-woman show has won high praise from critics and public alike in cities throughout the country brings to life a variety of poems, songs and speeches about black America ranging in mood from anger to high comedy. Clive Barnes has said of her, "Miss Burrows is black, good, and angry. She wounds and hurts, giving some of black America's most excoriating literature the whiplash impetus of a relentless performance yet while angry, she is not bitter. She is all woman and full of fundamental charm. She is a magnificent performer—she takes us on the journey of black despair and white shame from old-time slavery to new-time Harlem." Vinie Burrows began her career as a child actress on radio. A graduate of New York Universit...
Constitutional Ammendment [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 4 February 1971
Constitutional Ammendment The student government association has proposed an amendment to the Constitution of the SGA at its meeting of January 20, 1971 by a vote of lOtoO. The next step is to publicize it for at least two weeks before a special election will be held in which the concurrence of a majority of the voters (all students are eligible) will be necessary tu adopt the amendment. The amendment reads as follows (proposed by Eric Murray): "Upon resignation of the Vice President of Social Affairs, the Vice President of Legislative Affairs, the Treasurer, the recording Secretary, or the reporting Secretary, the SGA president shall appoint an individual with the approval of 2/3 majority of the Student Senate to fill that office until the next regularly scheduled election or special election shall be held." This replaces Article VII Section 2. The SGA president supports the amendment.
WE CAN'T TURN AWAY! [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 4 February 1971
WE CAN'T TURN AWAY! EDITORIAL It has been noted by the media and by radical campus organizers that there is a national trend of apathy among college students this year. Frustrated by the failure of vocal non-violent dissent, afraid of or opposed to civil disobedience, the great mass has turned from the political mainstream and buried themselves in an intellectual haven of self-centeredness. The dangers of this trend are obvious, for issues haven't changed simply because the focal point of active dissent is ignoring them. The moral obligations of Americans cannot permit apathy, for it can only result in the development of tyranny in a government whose actions go unchallenged. In the end the people will suffer, not just the poor, but all of the people. Otto Rene Castillo, a Latin American poet, brings forth the threat of apathy in a poem entitled "Apolitical Intellectuals". Read it and consider your destiny, and that of the nation you've turned your back on: One day the ap...
JUNIORS! COME SPRING ? [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 4 February 1971
JUNIORS! COME SPRING ? by Missy Rotondaro Talk about ego trips! Everybody wants to be president for Pete's sake. SGA is in bad enough condition now without "playing games," and as an ex-senator called it, "playing games with the people." And that's what seems to be happening. Everyone you talk to is running for president, vice-president or anything else they could get in SGA. It's really sad. There's so much competition among these people. And for what? People trying to beat one another for glory? These are real ego trips. People like Terry Wimmer, Neal Madonick, and Steve Wesley are good talkers. They know how to get to and around the people. There are others. And I'm sure if these people run for office come Spring, an awful lot of bull will flow freely. This happens in every election. It's expected. Everyone wants to win. But do these people care? Are they concerned with building a better SGA, a working organization, or does the concern lie with whom will get the most glor...

THE COLUMN [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 4 February 1971
THE COLUMN THE FINANCIAL CRISIS AND COLEMAN HERPEL by Terry K. Wimmer Last Friday, January 29, I had the opportunity to spend an hour with the Director of Capitol Campus, Coleman Herpel. Our discussion was centered on the current status of the financial crisis facing the Penn State University system and Capitol Campus. As Mr. Herpel was quick to point out, the situation is grim and the worst is yet to come. The crisis was caused when the General Assembly refused to appropriate the full amount of money requested by the University. Instead, a partial appropriation in the sum of $72 million was approved. A major portion of that appropriation went to fill the needs of the twenty major operating budgets of the University. But as we are all frightfully aware, that money has been exhausted and the University has entered what Herpel describes as a "borrowing phase" which is necessary to pay for the major expense that the University is burdened with every two weeks, the paying of sal...
Letters To The Editor: i $ .„ [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 4 February 1971
Letters To The Editor: i $ .„ Dear Editor: I wish to congratulate Barry Kimmel, the new chairman of the Capitol Campus Social Committee, on the fine job he has done with his first endeavors. Although I was unable to attend the dance of January 19th, I did attend the Kegger and had a most enjoyable time. Being chairman of our Social Committee will certainly involve a great deal of work. I'm certain we have the right man for the job. I wish again to congratulate Barry on his work so far, and wish him the best of luck in the future. Charles G. Cooper Dear Editor: There have been many comments during the past year concerning the problem of apathy in its many forms. Many of these comments are certainly well founded; the importance of spekaing out on the situation cannot be underestimated. It is commendable that publications recognize their duty to criticize what they deem wrong. However, there are times when a problem is attacked conveniently, by generalizing the motives of the "...
NEW SOCIAL COMMITTEE [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 4 February 1971
NEW SOCIAL COMMITTEE by Lu Ann Berulis By now it should be apparent to all, that Capitol Campus has a new Social Committee. This organization is headed by Barry Kimmel who I think should be given credit just for undertaking this job. It is a position which is open to criticism from everyone. It is a position where you can't hide behind the saying, "you can't please all the people all the time," because these people are always complaining. These are the same people who won't attend the meetings where their opinions and ideas can be heard and possibly utilized. It seems they would rather be part of the problem than the solution. For the short time that Barry has been chairman, I think he has done a good job considering what he had to deal with-a mass of students who were waiting to see what the new Social Committee chairman would do for them. I heard a lot of criticism of the old committee but I never once heard anyone say they would care to help the new one. I don't know what...
S6« CONSCIENCE [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 4 February 1971
S6« CONSCIENCE by Skip Lewis Where are we? Where are we heading? Can it be that at a time so crucial to Capitol Campus our student Government leaders cannot be expected to act boldly because they lack the discipline to govern themselves? I know better than most the mistakes that youth can make; but let us not forget what is at stake...a student government in need of firm direction in order to service effectively the student body it represents. Let's ask ourselves another question. How can a student government effectively get down to issues if it is suffering from an internal cancerous growth? The answer is simplc.it can't. A house suspicious of itself can only bury its members in a mountain of disrespect and ugly rumors. And so it is at Capitol. And so it is that Capitol must have a student government with the backbone to make its members tow the line or have certain individuals recalled. Capitol Campus and the student body, now and in the future, cannot afford those who see...
