The second time around: Senior citizens view Halley's Comet—again by Gregory Rathbun Collegian Staff Writer As Halley's comet travels forther away from the earth, chances to see it become smaller. However, an optimistic group of senior citizens, aging from 76 to 103, didn't let thechances bothei them. They came to Behrend on April 23 confident in seeing the Comet, or rather see it again. The seven senior citizens had seen the Comet before, back in 1910. To Behrend they brought tales of-what the Comet and life was like 76 years ago. Catherine Young saw the Comet when she was eight years old. Now she is 84. "My father and I went to a local park. A great ;rowd of people gathered to see the Comet. He (her father) put me jp on a park bench. Then, I looked into the sky and saw it," _Voung said. Joe Monacella, who spent ¦nuch time around the waterfront as a boy, saw it with five or si> friends on what was then called the Pittsburgh Docks. He is now 90 and boasts three greatg...

Congressman Tom Ridge speaks on May 2 by Pat Schlipf Collegian Staff Writer Tom Ridge, Republican Congressman of Pennsylvania, will speak at Behrend on Friday, May 2. The lecture will begin at noon in the Reed Lecture Hall. Congressman Ridge will discuss the Gramm-Rudman issue and how it will affect college students in the fall semester. "This is a way of keeping students informed of what's going on in Congress," says Dr. Charles Redenius, Acting Head, Division of Business and the Social Sciences. "This way Ridge can talk to students about prominence in today's news." Some of the topics that were in query were the Libya issue and the Nicaragua issue, but they don't deal directly with the students' lives like the Gramm-Rudman issue. The Gramm-Rudman law is a deficit reduction bill. If the President and Congress cannot agree on a way to reduce the deficit, the Gramm-Rudman bill cuts certain programs to reduce expenses. This year the Gramm-Rudman law designates that all program...

Report warns more colleges joining the arms race (CPS)~A recent report charges that "more and more colleges and universities are enlisting in the arms race" by taking Pentagon research funds,,but governmen! and college sources involved in the research say it isn't true. Apparently intended to enlist students in the debate over the U.S. arms buildup, the report-"Uncle Sam Goes to School," by the American Friends Service Committee-contends that colleges "have reversed policies from the '60s and '70s, and resumed classified military research projects." "Brown, like most universities, went through a tough time (of student protests) around the Vietnam War," he adds. Student anger over Brown's participation in secret research ultimately resulted in a policystill in effect—against taking money for classified research. Most major research universities around the country adopted similar policies at the same time. The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker group which w...

Safety Tips: Buckle up by Totid Allen Division of Police and Safety All occupants of motor vehicles should wear safety belts while the vehicle is being operated. The following will present several reasons why this is a good idea. Insurance companies have indicated that if safety belts had been worn, many motor vehicle accident injuries and deaths may have been avoided. Safety belts may prevent occupants from being thrown out of a vehicle, thus eliminating the vehicles' frame as a protective shell. In addition, studies have shown that occupants of vehicles involved in accidents that do not wear safety belts are thrown around inside the vehicle, hitting windshields, steering columns, dashboards, seats and the like. Remember that the occupants are going the same speed as the vehicle and unlike the motor vehicle, do not have a set of brakes to stop with. The safety belt acts like a set of brakes to stop the occupants. Several insurance companies give extra coverage to their insu...

—Health Tips—Mononucleosis increasing in incidence Health Center—Infectious Mononucleosis is a common disease and is increasing in incidence, but does not 'spread like wildfire'. The largest number of reported cases are in the 15-24 year old age group, but can occur at any age. The cause is thought to be a virus. The onset is characterized by sudden, irregular fever, sore throat, swollen neck glands, and occasionally, a rash on the trunk or UDper arms, or jaundice. An in¬ creased need for sleep is common. None of these symptoms seldom last over one or two weeks. Those who suspect they may have "mono" should seek medical advice and have a blood test done. Activity can be resumed as soon as one feels well enough. In fact, those who resume activity seem to throw off the clinical signs sooner than those who are inactive. The idea that mono is a chronic disease with frequent relapses is false.

Tom Ridge visits continued from page 1 The lecture will last approximately twenty-five minutes with a fifteen minute question and answer period immediately following. The students will have about fifteen minutes to talk to the Congressman on a one-to-one basis following the question session. "Most students have never met a congressman. It would be nice for students to get in touch with their government," said Dr. Redenius. "Students who have come to his seminars before were never disappointed and the students that didn't attend—wished they had."

Gramm-Rudman cuts hit 80,000 Pell Grant Students AKRON, OH ( C P S ) - - Undergrad Laura McCafferty made it through this year at the University of Akron because she had a $950 Pell Grant. Now, if a letter she got last week proves true, she probably won't receive a dime of Pell Grant money next fall. McCafferty isn't the only one getting bad news this month as, for the first time in the Gramm-Rudman era, colleges deliver letters outlining how much federal aid students can expect for the next school year. As many as 80,000 students nationwide stand to get smaller Pell Grants or lose their grants altogether next fall, the American Council on Education (ACE) estimates.. _ Officials blame the Gramm-Rudman budget-balancing law—which forced a cut of $154 million from the Pell Grant program already this year--and underestimated the number of students who would qualify for the program. If Congress does not approve a bill to give the program the needed $215 million, about 500,000 stud...

ROTC feels edge of Gramm-Rudman cuts (CPS)--Air Force ROTC students felt the sharp edge of the Gramm-Rudman ax this Spring when the service canceled 300 scholarships. The ROTC reductions, imposed at a time when campus military programs are enjoying renewed popularity, threaten the scholarships the program uses to recruit students and restrict the kinds of schools at which students can use those scholarships, sources say. The Air Force, Navy and Army reported 30 percent increases in freshman enrollment at the end of last year—swelling their ranks to the highest levels since the military draft was suspended in 1973. Though one reason for ROTC's new popularity is a general rise in American patriotism, many students are attracted by generous scholarship programs that provide full tuition. But now Air Force scholarships now will be tougher to win and, in many cases, less generous, says Lt. Les Kodlick of the AFROTC headquarters. The Navy and Army, however, say that their programs...

Colleges join in arms race by accepting Pentagon funding cont'd from page 1 this year. In an interview, AFSC researcher Tom Conrad clarified that, while the Pentagon didn't actually spend $39.3 billion on research this year, the long-term contracts it awarded to schools and others ultimately would be worth that much over the following years. The Defense Department says its research budget this year is $1,024 billion-just 2.6 percent of what "Uncle Sam Goes To School" claims it is—and probably won't exceed S986 million for the next fiscal year. And the number of schools involved in military research, rather than "skyrocketing," has remained about the same during the past five years, according to previous AFSC reports. "Uncle Sam Goes To School" is one of a slew of recent studies warning of a renaissance in warrelated research at colleges and universities. For instance, petitions to keep Strategic Defense Initiative research off campus have been signed by physics professors at...

Comet viewers gather at Behrend cont'd from page 1 travelling close to the horizon. Then the real treat; seven people saw one of nature's smaller miracles. They beheld, for the second time in their lives, Halley's Comet. A Comet "Trekie" and fourtime veteran of Behrend's previous attempts to locate the Comet, Jack Thompson related some of the superstitions that people harbored back in 1910. "I was five when saw it in northern Ohio. People were very superstitious. They were crying and praying. They thought the Comet would crash into the earth and burn it up," Thompson relayed. He also knew a great deal about the Comet's makeup, facts he attained at three Behrend lectures. "It's a million miles out. Made up of water, ammonia, methane and carbon dioxide. The tail precedes it because solar wind pushes it forward." The senior citizens from the Sarah Reed Home saw a slide presentation earlier this year from a member of the Erie Planetarium. When Carol Pella of News 35, a PSU grad,...
