Members of the fraternity received monetary contributions from faculty, staff and students to purchase the goodies for the children's treats. Jim Dickson, President of Pi Sigma Chi, feels that "this was an important event because fraternity members reached beyond the bounds of Capitol Campus into the community.

Have a problem?... Take it to court [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 November 1982
Have a problem?... Take it to court By Elizabeth Cram You get a traffic ticket and you're madder than hell. Your favorite video machine in the game room was mauled by a maniac. Your heart is in your mouth as you stroll from your night class into the deserted parking lot. Gripe no more--you do have a recourse. The Student Court of Capitol Campus was established to help alleviate these and other problems. The court consists of eight students, a Chief Justice and seven Associate Justices appointed by an adviser and members of the Student Government Association. Chief Justice, Sharon Jacoby, says, "The majority of cases we review are simple traffic violations, where a student appeals what they feel is an unjust parking ticket. Students have the option of filing either a paper or personal appeal to the court. Depending on the circumstances, the students can be released from obligation or directed to pay the imposed fine. These fines, incidentally, go into the Student Government...
Nuclear lecture series at C.C, HACC [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 November 1982
Nuclear lecture series at C.C, HACC By Donna Kirker October's nuclear lecture series generated ideas, debate, and—perhaps, most importantly—optimism. "There was a continuous note in all the lectures...we can, as a society and private citizens, put pressure on our government to negotiate a treaty that would be in the best interest of the United States and the Soviet Union," said Kevin Sweeney, Assistant Professor of Humanities and Philosophy. The four-part lecture series was created by Sweeney, along with Humanities Division Head John Patterson, Professor of American Studies and History, and Paul Carrick, an Associate Professor of Philosophy at The Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC). Based on the premise that the issues surrounding a possible nuclear war are confusing, complex, and frightening, the talks were designed to provide straight information from four different professional perspectives. Once informed, the audience could then make some educated opinions. Sween...
"SPECTER" from page 1 [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 November 1982
"SPECTER" from page 1 had it offered as an amendment to the Senate Appropriations Bill. In other action relative to nuclear disarmament, Specter in July asked President Reagan to submit for Senate ratification two nuclear test ban treaties that would outlaw the underground testing of nuclear devices larger than .150 kilotons. For now, Specter said he doesn't perceive any immediate action or solution to the problem, saying, "it's a matter of time, because it's an issue of national importance with international impact." He added, "It will take time to develop a policy. Just recently, Specter attended a seminar that included both U.S. and Soviet delegates and found a tremendous similarity between the two nations' positions on designing a nuclear arms treaty. "The separate identity and individual attitudes of the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. were not there," he said. The Senator explained both the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. declared they desired an arms treaty, but both said they could ...

Rumors cleared on Meade Heights housing [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 November 1982
Rumors cleared on Meade Heights housing 7 By Thomas Dekle and Robert Rejmaniak It's time to answer rumors about housing at Meade Heights. The rumors developed naturally. There were students living in Meade Heights last year while attending H.A.C.C., and there are professors, employees and the provost living in Meade Heights this year. Because of this, a lot of students began to ask/'What's going on? Is Meade Heights housmg really for students?" "The confusion stems from the fact that we haven't had enough students to fill Meade Heights to capacity," says Meade Heights Housing Manager Frank Williams. "In the past we've allowed H.A.C.C. and other non-Capitol Campus people to live in the Heights in order to cover our costs." "This year enrollment is up, so outsiders had to move out." What about the employees now living in Meade Heights? "There are only two," Williams says. "JoAnn Nesgoda, Supervisor of dining hall services, is required to live here because she is on call 24 hou...
Innovators exchange ideas [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 November 1982
Innovators exchange ideas By Judith A. Faruquee Nationally-recognized opinion leaders including Abby Hoffman and MUtc^ Friedman receive dual billing with Capitol Campus professors in an ongoing series of radio interviews called "Meet the Innovators." The program, sponsored by the Dauphin County Library System with matching funds from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, includes an expert moderator from the staff ranks at Capitol Campus who introduces and discusses issues. with a national celebrity. Last Wednesday C.C. Political Science Assoc. Professor Dr. Robert Bresler was linked with Abby Hoffman, the controversial liberal best remembered for his political activism in the 1860*8. Hoffman was controversial as expected. When asked about the election he said it was "to give rich Americans more money in the hopes they vail give some to the poor." Bresler felt thatjn Hoffman's humorous but provocative way, Hoffman made it clear that he was in favor of Americans participatin...
The secret selection [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 November 1982
The secret selection Bryce Jordan On October 14, the press was invited to Ur.;-orp:4 v P-; : ... v] a special trustees raeet;:.0 where a new P.S.U. president would be voted in. It was a sham. The decision was made long before. At least one radio newscast reported Bryce Jordan's appointment while we were en route to University Park—before the trustees meeting started. The actual meeting turned out to be a puff performance unanimously electing Jordan with scarcely a chance for dissent. After the meeting, the press conference carried on the facade. Jordan's "spontaneous' comments were as canned as the press release packages handed out. The front stage theatrics and back stage decision making seems to be typical of the entire selection process of our new president. Since then much has been said and written about the lack of student and faculty input and opportunity to meet the final candidates for the position. Barry Lee Myers, associate professor of business administration at...

"Nebraska" [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 November 1982
"Nebraska" Bruce Sprintsteen's new album "Nebraska" (Columbia) will be quite a surprise to many of his fans. Springsteen was in a very dubious position prior to the release of "Nebraska." Each album Springsteen released in past years has received more critical acclaim than his last. His previous effort, "The River" was hailed by many as his "masterpiece." Springsteen was under a lot of pressure to produce another "Classic" album of high-spirited rock 'n' roll. Instead of delivering what was expected of him, he took an alternate route and released "'Nebraska"~an imaginative and risky album that is neither high-spirited nor rock 'n' roll. In this era of digital multitrack studios, Springsteen chose to record Nebraska in his New Jersey home on a track cassett recorder. The songs are stripped down to just Springsteen's vocals, acoustic guitar, and harmonica. Gone is his backup group, the "E Street Band," with the jingle-iangle guitars, honky-tonk keyboards, and wailing saxophone...
Heroes' Debut [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 November 1982
Heroes' Debut Robert Hazard and the Heroes' debut album (R.H.A.) is proof that the powers that be in the music industry can't keep a good band down. Unable to find any major record companies to oack mm, Hazard recorded the album in a small independent studio in his native Philadelphia. The album was heavily promoted by both Hazard and influential Philadelphia rock stations. As a result, Hazard got the last laugh on the major labels, who are not approaching him with offers. The E.P. (extended play) album consists of five cleverly crafted new wave dance songs. The killer cut on the album is the 'Escalator of Life'-Hazard's national anthem for all the shopping mall consumers. The song opens with ethereal synthesizer notes that are bottomed-out by a droogy techno-pop bass riff. The
Dire Straits [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 November 1982
Dire Straits On their 4th and latest album, "Love Over Gold," Dire Staits make it known that they're not interested in being a "commercial" band. The average length of the songs is well over seven minutes, which will prohibit much radio airplay. They are content to rely on their loyal fans to give the album a chance. Indeed, Dire Staits does not produce "background music"- their songs require full concentration by the listener. The focal point of the album is "Telegraph Road," a 14-minute epic which takes full advantage of Mark Knopfler's unique guitar style (plucking guitar strings with his fingers instead of guitar picks). The song parallels the growth of a coal mining town with the growth of a young man who is alienated by the complexity of the town. The young man becomes disillusioned with the "six lanes of traffic" full of people "driving home from the lactones aiscovers inai ana there is no work to be found. He longs for days gone by when the economy was stronger and...

'Almost Famous' a reality after two decades [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 November 1982
'Almost Famous' a reality after two decades By Joseph Guberman In his Camp Hill home, surrounded by acclaim for his first published novel, David Small is happy. He's happy about bis book's positive critical reception. He's happy the book is in its third printing. And, he's happy that the paperback rights have just been sold. Small, deserves some happiness. After twenty years of writing, and some permanently shelved unpublished novels, he finally has a winner. His book Almost Famous (Norton) is the story of a young baseball star's emotional collapse after a car accident shatters his career. The event is the basis for his theme, "The two death phenomenon." The "two death phenomenon," Small believes, "is that an athlete dies twice, unlike the rest of us who die only once. First the athlete dies at the end of his career, and then natural death." Small feels baseball allowed him a unique forum to analyze this because, "baseball is a metaphor. This metaphor can be attributed to my...
Guitarist to perform [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 November 1982
Guitarist to perform Solo guitarist Richard Metzger will appear at Capitol Campus in the Lion's Den on December 2,1982 at 12:15 p.m. Mr. Metzger will perform, on acoustic guitar, classical selections including four pieces by J. S. Bach. Metzger, described by critics as a personable young man with good performer-toaudience communication, enlivens his recitals with brief, sometimes lighthearted, com mentaries on the selections. He uses no amplifying equipment so that his sound, pure and intimate, maintains the integrity of the compositions. As stated in a recent review, Metzger's music sounds like music. Mr. Metzger received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in music from Pennsylvania State University and now teaches at Lehigh University, College Misericordia (Dallas, PA), and at Wilkes College (Wilkes-Barre)
