Police seek Heights prowler [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 September 1984

Police seek Heights prowler By Tony Perry An investigation is still underway today of apparent prowling incidents in the Meade Heights area, according to supervisor of safety and police services Charles Aleksy. At least eight complaints of a "peeping Tom" have been filed with campus police since July, the most recent of which filed on August 27. The situation is one of a handful of police-related incidents on campus this summer, including a series of sex offenses by an area youth, a high speed hit-and-run and a small collection of firearms which were discovered in a Meade Heights residence. Campus police said they have received eight complaints about a prowler in Meade Heights. One student told The Capitol Times that someone has been "peeping in windows" since midsummer. The incidents, which began on July 17, are believed to have resulted in the relocation of four female Meade Heights residents. "We do have a suspect but no charges have been filed," Aleksy said. A few ...

Meade Heights homes damaged by fire [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 September 1984

Meade Heights homes damaged by fire _ . . Fires: A now circuit box mark* tho dart of rapaka at ona of two Maada Haighta houaaa charrad by a power aurga. By Tony Perry A storm-related power surge was apparently the cause of two "minor" electrical fires in Meade Heights Monday night. Lower Swatara Fire Chief Richard Wilkins said "two of the fuse boxes shorted out," causing the residents of 93 5A and 936A Mars Drive to be temporarily relocated. According to senior Brian Bachman, of 935A Mars Dr., the fire in his house, which was located in the fuse box area of the kitchen wall, "smoldered itself out." Bachman said he and his roommates attempted to use the fire extinguisher provided in their house, but it did not work. On the night of the fire, maintenance mechanic James Noon disassembled the extinguisher in the presence of Capitol Times reporters and said that the unit had already been discharged. Frank Williams, Housing Supervisor for the campus, later told The Capitol...

Middletown fire displaces five Capitol students By Don Strausburger One Middletown woman is dead and five Capitol Campus students are homeless today because of a fire that swept through an apartment building at 41 Peters Avenue in Middletown Monday. The fire started at approximately 12:20 p.nvon Labor Day and quickly spread through the 31-apartment building. Students James Flannery, Ronald Minnick, Ted Harris, Charles Cassidy, and Joseph Szodfridt now face the task of finding new residences. Three of the students have chosen to stay in Meade Heights, one is staying off campus with a friend, and the fifth spent three days in a motel, courtesy the Red Cross. The campus Housing Office, in conjunction with the Office of Student Affairs, offered to provide temporary housing on campus. The students have the option of making the campus housing permanent, or staying on campus until new arrangements can be made. One of the students, James Flannery, said earlier this week that he ...

Mahar takes reins [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 September 1984

Mahar takes reins 936A Mars Drive was the site of one of two electrical fires Monday By Michelle Lackey Music professor William Mahar was appointed last week to head the Humanities Division. The decision to appoint a new division head came after professor John Patterson, former division head, stepped down to continue his research studies. Mahar, 43, officially accepted his position on September 1, after a twoweek effort by a search committee headed by provost Dr Ruth Leventhal. Besides appointing a new leader, the Humanities Division is striving to update, revise, and broaden its career placement objectives by offering three new courses in the multi-media field, according to Mahar. Plans are under way to revise the entire undergraduate humanities program by "developing stronger links into other career fields and making better use of the staff and facilities on hand now." As an example, Mahar said a "long-needed" appointment was made this semester by hiring Mark S. Gura...

How safe are we? [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 September 1984

How safe are we? Crime and ping-pong balls By Neil Myers There was a newspaper reporter who once boasted that he created a crime wave single-handedly. He didn't actually commit any crimes, he just started writing more frequently about crimes that occured every week. The focus of his news coverage started officials talking about the "pro blem." Sociologists analyzed it and developed complex explanations, and the public worried about it. Then the reporter decided he'd had enough and he stopped emphasizing crimes. The offenses continued as always, but the crime wave mysteriously ended. This issue of the Capitol Times contains several articles dealing with crime on campus. The problems reported definitely exist. We make it our policy to verify our ingormation as much as possible. But we're not trying to create a crime wave, and we hope you won't infer any. If the emphasis seems unusual, it's probably because serious problems are infrequent here. All of that said, there a...

Campus Forum [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 September 1984

Campus Forum Anyone who thinks this campus hasn't come a long way since its inception should take a long look at some of the early yearbooks. And anyone who thinks the Capitol Timeshasn't come a long way since 1969 should see our file copies of a mimeographed publication that called itself simply "Student Newspaper". But that doesn't mean that either the campus or the Capitol Times should be«atisfied with mediocrity. Treading water may be good exercise but it won't win you any medals at the Olympics. As Capitol Campus welcomes a new administration that is obviously committed to improvements, we at the Capitol Times think it's time to improve ourselves. That's why we're changing our format from a monthly magazine to a biweekly tabloid newspaper. We believe our new format is much better suited to an expanding campus. It should allow better coverage of campus news and events, while allowing journalism students to gain experience in reporting under deadline conditions. We also thi...

Police expand night escort [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 September 1984

Police expand night escort By Tony Perry The plight of many students who are'wary of walking back to the dorm area or Meade Heights alone at night has been met with a new escort service, sponsored by police services. "We've had some students say they were uncomfortable getting out of the Library or class late at night," said Dr. Jerry South, director of student affairs. Police services has already implemented a program to walk commuter students to their cars at night. Now, according to South, they have obtained a vehicle to offer rides from the Olmstead building to the residential areas from 8 p.m. until 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The new service comes in the wake of the arrest of an area youth in connection with a series of sex offenses here, although campus police denied any direct connection between the events and the escort service. Students wishing to use the service must contact the school nurse in W102 from 8 p.m. until 10. The nurse will then summon the escor...

Tests slated for Heights waste dump [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 September 1984

Tests slated for Heights waste dump By Neil Myers Phase II testing of the waste dump near Meade Heights should begin "about October 1", according to Frank Fair, Operations Chief for Solid Waste Management at the Department of Environmental Resources (D.E.R.). A plan detailing the operation was scheduled for release this week by the Air Force, the agency responsible for creating six waste dumps on or near campus when the area was part of the former Olmsted Air Force Base. Fair said the testing here, to be supervised by Weston Environmental Consultants of West Chester, will include excavation of an area near the Meade Heights end of the path between Fifth and Flickinger Streets. Construction rubble and eight barrels containing an unknown substance were found there last year after a search of Air Force records indicated that dumping may have taken place along the path between 1956 and 1963. Sediment and water samples will also be taken from the stream that runs through the path...

Registration faster, says Guy [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 September 1984

Registration faster, says Guy By Neil Myers Despite complaints by some students about closed courses and waiting in line, registration for fall courses under the new computerized Administrative Information System (A.I.S.) has gone smoothly. So said Dorothy J. Guy, Records and Institutional Research Officer at Capitol Campus. "To my knowledge, there have been no delays," Guy said. She described registration as "uneventful * . Guy said the new system has speeded the registration process as well as drop/add procedures. The system allowed the Records Office here to pre-register incoming juniors for the first time, Guy said. A.I.S. allows instant notification of course closings, time conflicts bet ween courses, and revisions to class rosters. "Down time", or shutdowns in the system, have been minimal, Guy said. The Records Office maintained a duplicate manual system in case A.I.S. failed, but it was not used, according to Guy. She said the longest unscheduled shutdown lasted ...

S.G.A. allots budgets [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 September 1984

S.G.A. allots budgets By Neil Myers Over $17 thousand was scheduled to be alloted this week to campus clubs and organizations by the Student Government Association (S.G.A.) as the budgeting process that began last spring draws to a close. Sharon Corcoran, S.G.A. Treasurer, said that most clubs seemed satisfied with their preliminary allotments decided at budget hearings held in August by the S.G.A. Finance Committee. ¦ ¦ 'Sdme people left sad; most seemed pleased," 'Corcoran said, although no organization received its full requested subsidy. About half of the campus' 35 student organizations elected to defend their proposals at a hearing, Corcoran added. The largest request came from the Student Union Board of Governors (S.U.B.O.G.), which asked for $11,000. The Chess Club filed the lowest request at $236, according to Corcoran. The Finance Committee encourages all dubs to fund as much of their costs as possible themselves. She said many clubs are planning to hold car wash...

Purple Rain: hit movie with hit music [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 7 September 1984

Purple Rain: hit movie with hit music By Donald Strausburger In recent years, movies with good soundtracks have tended to take more advantage of the music than the screen action. However, this summer's movie crop has given us a pleasant exception to this precedent in Prince's film debut, "Purple Rain". "Purple Rain" raises the question "Which is better, the movie or its music?" The apparent answer is, "Neither - they are both good." The film stars Prince as The Kid, a character reputed to be much like himself in the early stages of his career, and Apollonia as his love interest. The Kid is tormented by the volatile relationship between his screen father, a musician who resembles Prince's real father, John L. Nelson, and his mother, whom the father beats. That relationship burdens his own affair with Apollonia throughout the entire movie and destroys his views more and more as the film develops. Also featured in the film is Morris Day of "The Time" as Prince's antagonist. D...

Provost hedges on gala cost [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 21 September 1984

Provost hedges on gala cost By Tony Perry More than $17,000 was spent on the events surrounding the provost installation ceremonies last week, the Capitol Times has learned despite a refusal by Capitol Campus administrators to disclose complete budget information. Although Provost Ruth Leventhal said the events, held on the main lawn September 10 and 11, were a "good investment for Capitol Campus," her office would not disclose the total cost of the.events. Although it is difficult to tell the exact cost of the undisclosed items, Associate Provost Robert Graham said "some university money was spent" on the events. Graham said "tens of thousand and even hundreds of thousand dollars of good will" have sustained the bulk of the expense. "The major costs were the tent and the food," said John H. Joseph, Assistant Provost. A spokesperson from York Tent Company in York, Pennsylvania said large green and yellow tent was rented for $3,395 but would not say whether or not the colle...
