Ada debuts; bigger computer facility for CRAGS [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 17 February 1984

Ada debuts; bigger computer facility for CRAGS By Neil Myers Computers seem to be moving in everywhere these days, and Capitol Campus is no exception. In January, Capitol became one of the first schools in central Pennsylvania to teach a new computer language, while it also expanded its micro-computer facilities. The Ada programming language is being taught for the first time here in Math Science 408 by Dr. M. Susan Richman, Associate Professor of Mathematics. The "Ada"trademark is licensed to the Defense Department, which developed the language to replace well-known languages like FORTRAN and COBOL. According to Dr. Richman, it is expected to make maintenance of sou ware (programs) easier and eliminate the confusion of what she said were "450 to 1500 incompatible languages". This is the first time such a course has been offered anywhere within Pehn State, Richman noted, and it is one of the first in central Pennsylvania. Dr. Richman, one of 15 university educators who att...

Black History Month: past, present and future need [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 17 February 1984

Black History Month: past, present and future need By Tony Perry Another February has arrived and with it a myriad of activities honoring Black History Month. Admittedly, the question of whether or not we should even have a month dedicated to the celebration of one section of the population is a sensitive one. There are many who would say that such a celebration only serves to exclude white society from the concerns of black America. They say that every February blacks start acting like they are going to take over. They start using the term "reverse racism." On the other side of the fence, there are those who say it is about time America admitted to the fact that blacks have played an important role in our history. They say blacks should have a day to celebrate their heritage and a reasonable excuse to educate this nation's youth on the history of blacks in America. Some would even go so far as to say blacks have suffered enough over the years and they deserve to have a mont...

Capitol Campus proud [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 17 February 1984

Capitol Campus proud By Linda McCarty Capitol Campus—a mere oneroom schoolhouse compared to the huge educational metropolis of University Park-may be suffering from what could be termed a "Penn State identity crisis." This unusual phenomenon creates confusion among Capitolites. "Am I or am I not a true-blue, Nittany Lion Penn Stater?" they ask. University Park answers yes and no. Yes, you can pay Penn State tuition, use Penn State notebooks and even wear Penn State sweatshirts. We are even allowed the Penn State insignia on our diploma as long as the words "Capitol Campus" are written boldly underneath. But no, we are not granted the priviledge of earning University Park degree titles. The distinction is fairly clear. For whatever reason, it appears we are "sub-Penn Staters" in the eyes of many at University Park. But if we take a good hard look at ourselves, look past our far irom picturesque college setting to our fellow students, ...

Question: Did new semester system affect grades? [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 17 February 1984

Question: Did new semester system affect grades? "I don't think the people in charge took into account the effect it would have on the students. . .though this semester seems better organized. I'm better able to keep up with the course work." PAMELA SMITH Marketing "I think it's easier this way. You don't have to cram so much into so little time." RICK BLAUCH Accounting "I'm used to it, but I don't think the teachers are. The tests come too quickly. My grades did suffer, my 'cume' dropped." JOY PARKER Marketing "It has affected my gradesnegatively. More lab time and less class time, which gives less time for instruction in theory in the classroom and more lab work." JIM CZARNIECKI Electical Engineering "My grades were slightly higher. I was more relaxed having fifteen weeks to do the course work." MARY ANN FLEISHER Elementary Ed. "The amount of work put into j the class rather than the length of the course should determine the grade." Mechanical Engineering TUAN DOAN...

Capitol engineers build and test fuel [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 17 February 1984

Capitol engineers build and test fuel Dr. Miller (above) demonstrates the functioning of the gull-wing door. Sleek lines of TWV are evidenced below. By James E. Fitzroy Reprinted with permission of the Sunday Pennsylvanian A head-on confrontation with the one-eyed, angular contraption is like staring down a benign version of Bruce, the mechanical star of Jaws. Not the least bit menacing, though, is this senior project design class research assignment. Donald Miller, Assistant Professor of Engineering, who initiated the project, has appropriately dubbed the results the "Three-Wheeled Vehicle", or.TWV. The lightweight, efficient commuter vehicle is not quite a car, yet it's not quite a motorcycle. "It's a combination of the best of both," said Miller. The TWV is the product of two years of labor by succeeding senior project design classes at Capitol Campus. A score of students have contributed to the almost-completed work, according to...

continued from pg. 1 An important goal for the BSU is a program for promoting understanding among students from a variety of backgrounds. They plan to model it on a similar one held at University Park on a January weekend. The "Ebony and Ivory" weekend was co-sponsored by two of that campus' fraternities. Its goal was the improvement of race relations at the institution. The program consisted of a series of lectures, workshops and panel discussions that explored the personal feelings, behaviors, values and attitudes of the participants. "Right now, most of our energies are being used to get through Black History Month," Samuels said, "but we do think it would be a good idea for our own campus. I wasn't able to attend, but from what I've heard about it, it was an excellent program and I'm sure any campus would benefit from an event like that. "Perhaps in the spring we'll have a similar program here. A lot of our students go home on weekends, especially in winter, and you have t...

"HISTORY," continued from Pg- 6 as we close our eyes to the problems over which we could have some control. Racism will not only be history, but present and future as well, and we will still need a Black History Month. Let's not use February as a month to remember what one race did for this country; we can and should do that all the time. Let's use February to really think about what we can do to change our attitudes about people, especially in an academic environment such as Capitol Campus. Racism is not permanent and one day we will eliminate it. When Martin Luther King, Jr., sang, "We shall overcome. . ." from the steps of the Capitol in Washington, D.C., he wasn't talking about blacks. He was talking about America.

Barton's "Moving Road" captures Harrisburg history [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 17 February 1984

Barton's "Moving Road" captures Harrisburg history By Sharon DePalma So you think Harrisburg is a boring place without much culture. Well WKBO says "it's a special place to be," and for Associate Professor of American Studies Michael Barton, Harrisburg is a kaleidoscope of beauty - both historical and environmental. Barton says even more in his new book Life by the Moving Road: An Illustrated History of Greater Harrisburg, distributed by Windsor Publications of California, which specializes in publishing local histories. The book, which is a composite of essays, explores Harrisburg's history as far back as 1733, concluding with recent highlights between 1946 and 1981. The style is "different (for a history book) in that it hadn't been done before," Barton said. Life by the Moving Road summarizes the essence of each era via a particular episode. For instance, in Barton's chapter "The Start of Stopping By," eastern traveler Miss Margaret Dwight describes Harrisburg men as "drunk...

Terms of Endearment' touches the heart [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 17 February 1984

Terms of Endearment' touches the heart By Don Strausburger Once in a while, a film comes along that touches the heart of its entire audience in every possible way. The latest film of this type is Terms of Endearment. The film stars Debra Winger as the daughter of an over-possessive mother, played by Shirley MacLaine. Winger's character begins the movie spending the night before her wedding partying for the last time as a single woman. We immediately find out that her mother does not approve of the wedding. She goes through with the wedding and immediately gets pregnant. We then quickly pass through nine years and two more children in the next few minutes. After developing the relationships between family members, the story takes a highly surprising twist, bringing the fun in the early portion to a grinding halt. The subplot involves one of the best performances of the motion picture year. The story features Jack Nicholson as a retired astronaut who lives next door to the mot...
