THERE'S SOMETHIN' HAPPENIN' HERE! Rock Festival by Lee Nell You can bet your cookies there is. And what it is, is clearly going to be a great rock festival to be held on May 16th at noon. And it's going to be here-on campus. And it's going to be free, A group of Capitol Campus students, Goodpeople Productions, has announced that at least nine groups plus Anne Ferrino and Company will supply about 12 hours of music. At this writing GPP is awaiting reply to their invitations to the Magnificent Men and the Hydraulic Peach-two groups of some prominence in this area. Rented from Big City Music Band (who toured with Redbone and the James Gang,) the 400 watt sound system will most certainly help to make Capitol Campus a nice place to be on Sunday afternoon.

Black Recruitment 6 Additional Black Faculty [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 12 May 1971
Black Recruitment 6 Additional Black Faculty EDITORIAL by Chandler D. Wolf In a recent publication of the BLACK REPORT which is a communication organ of the Black Student Union, an article appeared concerning Black enrollment in the Pennsylvania State University System. This article, which was a reprint from the DAILY COLLEGIAN, the newspaper of the main campus at University Park, presented an editoral on the real barriers that existed within the university for blacks. The content of this editoral pointed out in explicit terms the failure of this University System to meet the needs of its minority groups along the lines of recruitment. Pennsylvania State University is compared with the University of Mississippi in its enrollment percentages for blacks which is 3.0 percent. The University of Mississippi is "infamous for its racism." Surprisingly, Capitol Campus is likewise not too impressive in its percentage of black enrollment. An investigation shows Capitol's black enrolle...

YOUR NEXT DOOR SIMMER [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 12 May 1971
YOUR NEXT DOOR SIMMER by Luann Berulis When I started to write this article, I was going to criticize Capitol Campus security, but the longer I thought about it and the more people I talked with, my opinion changed. This article is in reference to the larcenies which have occurred in the dorm, the latest in Wrisberg Hall-which is still a mystery to all, including myself. From what has happened, nothing is impossible—or so it seems. To refresh your memories of this incident or if some of you have not heard of what happened I will remind you. The television consoles from the first and second floors of Wrisberg Hall were taken sometime during the early morning hours of May 2, 1971. The astonishing thing was that no one even heard anything. Is the reason for this apathy or what? It is hard to believe that these two items were removed without any noise. But if the girl next door stamps down the hall, Hail Columbia, you want carpeting because you can't study. Another thing I heard...

L.A. Limericks [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 12 May 1971
L.A. Limericks The D.C. police had a treat Busting kids for walking the street. It's true that their job Was to break up the mob, But I should think they could be more discreet. Some say SGA is a rot. Some will agree, others not. But the voting is done The winners have won So work with themthey"re all that we've got. A G-man at a fine university Put an end to all his adversity. With sheer lack of prudence, Instead of spying on students, He shot themand ended subversity. A peculiar bird is the pelican. His beak holds more than his bellican. He eats fish all day In a startling way, But I still don't know how the hellican. An interesting man is our Sptro. To some folks he's really a hero; To Dick Nixon he's grand As second in command, But to me he's an absolute zero. Rural people will say without fail That city walls make them think they're in jail. But it's city air that I love 'Cause when I look up above I can see what I'm going to inhale Dr. Mclntire had quite a ball, Went...
XGI's Attend National Convention [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 12 May 1971
XGI's Attend National Convention Capitol Campus' veteran organization, Chi Gamma Iota fraternity, recently sent two representatives to the National Association of Collegiate Veterans, Inc. (N.A.C.V.I.) Convention held in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, May 5-9. The two local delegates reported that the primary objectives of the N.A.C.V.I. are increasing educational benefits and other V.A. benefits, as well as increasing job opportunities for returning veterans. The convention was attended by 107 delegates from 16 states and the group is rapidly expanding its ranks. The organization is also working on the state and local level to help all veterans receive a "fair shake" in return for the service they rendered while on active duty. The representatives from Capitol Campus were Len Thompson and Steve Wesley.
Minority Student Scholarship Fund [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 12 May 1971
Minority Student Scholarship Fund Letters To The Editor: There seems to be some misunderstanding about the nature of the ''Minority Student Scholarship Fund," which has been initiated in the name of the Senior Class. In an attempt to clear-up this misunderstanding let me state clearly the nature of this scholarship fund: This Scholarship Fund will hopefully provide financial aid for entering juniors who demonstrate financial need and show academic standing. The initial emphasis of this Scholarship Fund was mainly directed at minority group students entering Capitol, this however is not to exclude white students who also demonstrate financial need. The success of this project will depend largely upon the support of all concerned persons. It is my contention that you will see the pressing need for a project of this kind. Attempts in the past with regard to the initiation of a Scholarship Fund have been unsuccessful. This with the support of contributions from juniors, facult...
Council candliate speaks It Capitol [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 12 May 1971
Council candliate speaks It Capitol Tony Petrucci, Harrisburg City Council Democratic candidate, spoke Friday in the Capitol Campus Auditorium on the problems facing local government. The candidate emphasized the need for consolidation in local government to more efficiently meet the needs of urban dwellers. Petrucci blamed the lack of government response on the present social situation and compared the contemporary American social structure to a set of esculators running both up and down—the up esculator allowing a privileged few to reach the top of society and the down esculator designed to keep poor and minorities at the bottom of the social structure. Petrucci also stated that the violence by anti-war demonstrators in Washington was nominal compared to the violence perpetrated by current government policies. A political science instructor at the Harrisburg Area Community College, Tony Petrucci faces a difficult campaign in the predominately Republican city of Harrisburg....

Heindel, Wolf and Miller Comment on New Black Studies [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 12 May 1971
Heindel, Wolf and Miller Comment on New Black Studies A new undergraduate program in Afro-American Studies is being offered at Capitol Campus. The new program—developed by a joint committee of students and faculty—is being made available as an option in the existing baccalaureate degree programs in Humanities and Social Science beginning with the Fall Term, 1971. Dr. Richard H. Heindel, dean of faculty, cited the Afro-American Studies Option as a significant addition to the undergraduate offerings at the campus. "As a legitimate area of concern and study," he said, "black studies has a definite place in the University, especially on a campus located in a metropolitan area." Outlining the new program, Dr. George D. Wolf, head of the Division of Humanities, Social Sciences and Education, said it was initiated by students through the Black Student Union and was originally developed as an Independent Study project by students. In response to the BSU request, the Social Science P...
From Friends of Animals [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 12 May 1971
From Friends of Animals Americans revolted by the massacre of baby harp seals, the threatened extinction of whales, and the killing of polar bears have a golden opportunity to translate their justifiable outrage into direct action. An incensed citizenry can strike a telling blow against the brutality and needless slaughter by writing their representatives in Congress, demanding they vote for the Harris-Pryor Bill of Rights for Ocean Mammals. Jointly sponsored by Sen. Fred R. Harris (D.-Okla.) and Rep. David Pryor (D.-Ark.), the Bill would: 1. Make it a criminal offense for any American to kill seals, polar bears, whales, sea lions, walruses, or any other ocean mammal, 2. Ban the importation into the United States of all products from ocean mammals, thus removing the economic incentive for their slaughter, 3. Phase out the seal kill on our Pribilof Islands without abrogating the current treaty with Japan and Canada. The United States now agrees to kill seals on land for those...
CARNIVAL'S COMIN'! [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 12 May 1971
CARNIVAL'S COMIN'! by Tom Ogden On May 21 and 22 the Olmsted Plaza will come to life with one of the biggest attractions of this term and possibly of the year: this year's version of the Vets' Club annual CARNIVAL! "Bigger and better" is the motto of this year's committee as it speeds to complete details on this gala event. Len Thompson, committee chairman, speaks optimistically of CARNIVAL: "Although at this time the number is flexible, approximately ten on-campus organizations will be represented." So far committed for concessions are the ex-GI's for food concessions, the Cheerleaders, the Student Employees, the Senior Ball, the Business Club offering a Car Smash, the R.S.C., the Sorority, the B.S.U., the Faculty Wives with a Cake Sale, the Head Shop, and the Ski Club with the feature tented concession, a Circus Side-Show, complete with magician, ventriloquist, escape artist and fire-eater. Other concessions may include fortune-telling, a basketball toss, a dunking throw...
