'Victory' tour a thriller to all [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 October 1984
'Victory' tour a thriller to all By Don Strausburger In today's world of music, separated by generation gaps, what are the odds of seeing more than one generation attending the same concert? Or better yet, what are the odds of seeing four? That unlikely sight was commonplace Saturday evening when the Jacksons brought their much-publicized tour to Philadelphia. Over the past several months, the Jacksons have been helping to eliminate the age barriers considered normal in the world of contemporary popular music as they journey across the country on the "Victory" tour. Not only have the Jacksons eliminated the age barriers, they have also managed to reduce the racial barriers which have long intimidated many music fans. The show, performed to nearly 70,000 tans at JFK Stadium covered 15 years of the Jackson family's musical history from the early days of hits like "I'll Be There" to .smash hits like "Billie Jean" and "Beat ft" from Michael's multi-platinum album, "Thriller." ...

S.G.A. OK's revised club move plan [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
S.G.A. OK's revised club move plan By Tony Perry A proposal to relocate the Student Government Association and its entourage of 27 student clubs and organizations will reach the provost's desk tomorrow, following S.G.A.'s approval of the move earlier this week. The S.G.A. membership agreed to move from their present location on the first floor of the Olmsted building to room 216 despite allegations contending that the new location would be too small and that certain clubs would wind up with less space than they currently use. "We have verified that indeed it is larger than the space now occupied," James South, Director of Student Affairs, said. Last week, President's Council rejected a plan to move the student organizations to Room 216 because of dissatisfaction with a scale drawing of tho area that was later found to be inaccurate. "[The move] provides an opportunity to create an open The S.G.A.Lounge is one of the facilities scheduled to move. lounge area," South told th...
SGA to test Capitol Campus water supply [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
SGA to test Capitol Campus water supply By Neil Myers and Tony Perry The Student Government Association voted unanimously Tuesday to fund its own analysis of campus drinking water to determine if toxic chemicals are present. "You're showering in chemical waste. That's what it boils down to. It seems the Air Force, in its infinite wisdom, dumped chemicals all over the place," said Pete Mekosh, S.G.A. president. The decision comes in the wake of a delay in the start of water and soil sampling at the Meade Heights and Fruehauf waste burial sites identified last year by the Air Force, former owner of the Olmsted Air Base. Frank Fair, an official of the state Department of Environmental Resources (D.E.R.), said the testing is now tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-November instead of October 1. S.G.A. president Pete Mekosh said the private testing planned by S.G.A. is intended to confirm or deny D.E.R. assurances that the drinking water is safe. D.E.R. has in the past said t...
Smokeout coming next month [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Smokeout coming next month By Beth Home Mike is a 22 year old college student who has been smoking for five years. He says he can quit anytime he wants. On November 15 he and all other puffers will have a day to prove their willpower at the Great American Smokeout by quitting "cold turkey" for 24 hours. The national Great American Smokeout is the culmination of the four-week Fresh Start Quit Smoking Program created by the American Cancer Society (A.C.S.). This year's goal is to get at least one out of five smokers to quit smoking fom midnight to midnight. "Just under 36 percent of American smokers attempted to give up cigarettes on Smokeout Day 1983," the A.C.S. reported. Eight percent of the 36 quit for 24 hours and over four percent quit for between one and eleven days after the program ended, according to the Gallup organization. The Fresh Start Clinic dates for the Capitol Campus are October 18 and 25, and November 1 and 8. Sign-up sheets are in the nurse's office. The f...

New senators have plaks for improvements [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
New senators have plaks for improvements By Michelle Lackey Getting involved with University issues and having the drive to push for improvments in academic programs are reasons why students like Christina Veltri ran for a position on student government. Veltri, 25, an Accounting major was elected senator at large in last week's SGA elections. Veltri feels her position is important because she acts as a laison between the student government and the student body. "My job is important because it provides important information to the students," Veltri said. In addition to her senator at large position, Veltri serves as a University faculty senator in representing the undergraduate students in the Commonwealth Educational System. "The elections were very successful with a large turnout from the student body." - Jackie Greytak Before she came to Capitol Campus, Veltri attended the Penn State campus in DuBois. After graduation Veltri hopes to pursue an education in law. Last Wed...
Buckingham solo Lp a let-down [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Buckingham solo Lp a let-down A Review By Don Strausburger Every so often an artist leaves a vastly successful group to become a major solo star. However, with the release of his latest album, "Go Insane," Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac has proved that he is not yet ready to make that successful break. In his second solo attempt, Buckingham offers eight original songs which are inconsistently packaged making the album difficult to enjoy. From the album's opening cut, "I Want You," an uninspiring collection of computer-generated music and senseless lyrics, to "Play In The Rain," a repititious yet haunting tune, the first side generally lacks any variation regarding tempo except for portions of the final song. The first side does contain the album's two singles, "Go Insane," a song which sounds like it should have been on the Fleetwood Mac "Mirage" album, and "Slow Dancing," one of the more effective cuts on the album. Luckily for this project, the album has a second si...
Students help raise money for fire victims [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Students help raise money for fire victims By Don Strausburger Over the past several weeks, three Capitol Campus organizations have raised over $350 to benefit five students victimized by the Labor Day fire at 41 Peters Avenue in Middletown. In addition to the funds already raised, two sets of textbooks and dry cleaning services have been donated, according to Peter Mekosh, president of the Student Government Association (SGA). SGA raised $210 during the Provost's Picnic, SUBOG raised $92 at the annual Fall Kickoff, and Beta Chi donated $50 according to Jeff Schnier, president of SUBOG. Mekosh added that the student organizations are "not through with raising funds." Since the fire, students James Flannery, Ronald Minnick, Ted Harris, Charles Cassidy and Joseph Szodfridt have all relocated including one who moved into Meade Heights. The remaining four moved into new apartments in the Middletown and Harrisburg areas.
Elevator repair hurts many [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Elevator repair hurts many The sound of progress is in the air. Anyone venturing into the Olmsted building during the day can hear the all too pervasive sounds of an elevator being built. Hammering, sawing, banging. All the noises that go along with building renovations abound throughout the entire mid-section of the building. What's that? You say you can't hear your professor lecturing? Don't worry about it. It's only a minor inconvenience. All the classes that have wheel-chair bound students in them have been temporarily relocated to either the multipurpose building or the new science and technology building and the new elevator is scheduled to be completed by January 10. What's that? You say you have to carry large objects up the staircase? Don't worry about it. It's only a minor inconvenience. The personnel servicing the soft drink machines on each floor have to carry cases of soda to the third floor. Instructional Services, those wonderful people who s...
