Beachcomber staff under the direction of Dean Robert C. Moss 


Editor's Welcome 

The editorial staff of the Beachcomber would like to welcome all 
new and returning students to life at JC. 

Most students will come to recognize the weekly, award-winning 
"Voice of the PBJC. Student" as a familiar friend on Monday 
morning, something to accompany that cup of "walce-me-up- 
please-so-I-can-pass-that-test" coffee. The Beachcomber is the 
watchdog of Student Government, a careful follower of the 
administration and District Board of Trustees, an adamant 
supporter of the school, but also one of its best critics; in general, an . 
informative publication that lets students and faculty know what is 
going on - or what should be . 

Under the experienced arm of adviser and staff, the Beachcomber 
provides essential experience for those who plan^ careers in the 
fields of journalism, photography, advertising, and business. It is 
also an interesting experience and one of the best activities on 

All those who are interested, both experienced and novice, should 
apply at the paper's offices in the Student Publications building 
next to the cafeteria. All positions are open. 

Honorariums are available for those with major positions to help 
with college expenses. Ad salespersons receive commissions on 
their sales. 

The Beachcomber is a member of the Associated Collegiate Press 
and the Florida Junior College Press Association.

SG Serves As Vital Campus Force 

Student activities at JC are planned and managed by the 
Executive Board of the Student Government. Comprised of 
four student elected officers in the positions of president, 
vice-president, treasurer, and secretary, the SG Executive 
Board handles use of activity funds in excess of S30,OO0 

SG periodically sponsors dances, concerts, and film nights 
for the student body. Concerts in the past have featured such 
renown groups as the Allman Brothers Band. 

But fun and music are not the only function of Student 
Government; SG serves as the guiding force with which the 
students exercise perogative in government in an organized, 
well-financed public forum. 

Twenty-four students at large are elected to the Student 
Body Senate. The Senate is elected in September in a 
campus-wide general election. Any student maintaining 12 
hours and having a 2.2 grade point average (past academic 
records are referred to for freshmen) may campaign for a 
Senate seat. A 2.0 grade point average must be maintained 
while in office. 

The Senate considers appropriation of SG monies as well as 
the initiation of change for the betterment of the student. 

Instrumental in revising an attendance policy, the SG 
Senate has also helped to assist the progress of women's 
athletics, and is still involved in the creation of a Judicial 

The Executive Cabinet consists of five secretaries who are 
appointed to head Cabinet departments of Elections, 
Organizations, Productions, Publications and Publicity. Pour 
students are also appointed to, serve in each of the five 
Cabinet departments. 

Applications for student government positions are available 
from the offices of SG at the North SAC lounge. 

Students have the right to suggest changes to their elected 
leaders, if they so desire. Student participation is encouraged 
in Student Government as in all activities. 

SG Executive Board 
Urges Participotion 

Dear Fellow students, 

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Palm 
Beach Junior College for the 1974-75 school year. We hope your 
stay at PBJC will be both fruitful and enjoyable. 

Student Government serves as a channel between students and 
administration, to inform administration of student needs and 
desire. The student body Senate is one branch of this channel; the 
Senate can only work and be successful in this function if you, the 
students, are willing to take part. 

In September 1974 elections will be held to fill the positions of the 
Senate. In this election, all 24 seats are open. A 2.2- average is 
needed to file for election and once in the senate, a Senator must 
maintain a 2.0 average. 

During the previous school year the Student Government, 
including members of the Senate, played a major role in acquiring 
money for women's athletics. 

For those who desire to participate in the decision-making 
process that affects all students at PBJC, we urge as many students 
as possible to run in the Senatorial elections. For those students that 
cannot take a direct part in Student Government, we urge you to 
make your voice heard and let the SG officials know what you want 
to see done. 

Again, we hope all students will enjoy their stay at PBJC.

The Old 

PBJC History Details 
Rapid Expansion Rate 

Palm Beach Junior College, establish- 
ed in 1933, is the oldest Junior College in 
Florida. Conceived by two local 
educators, the Superintendent of Schools, 
Joseph Youngblood and Howell Watkins, 

Principal of Palm Beach High School, 
Palm Beach Junior College first held 
classes in a small three room building 
adjacent to Palm Beach High School. 
The college served as an alternative for 

. . And The New 


high school graduates who could not 
afford to attend state universities and 
who did not have adequate education to 
get good paying jobs in the community. 

PBJC remained at Palm Beach High 
School until 1948, when the enrollment 
reached an all-time high of 175. The 
college then moved to Morrison Field, 
now Palm Beach International Airport, 
taking over the deserted Army barracks. 
For the first - and only - time in its 
history, PBJC offered dormitories and a 
swimming pool, plus a chapel and an 
excess of classroom space to its students. 

The good life was short lived. 1951 
brought about a crisis which many 
thought would be the end of PBJC. 
Enrollment had soared to 415 when the 
Korean conflict forced the armed services 
to reactivate Morrison Field. Not able to 
find suitable grounds for a campus, PBJC 
moved into the town hall of Lake Park. 
There the college remained until 1956, 
when the increasing enrollment forced 
the town Fathers to request that the 
college move to some other location . 

This second crisis was resolved when 
the Palm Beach County Board of 
Commissioners donated to the county 
school board the northwest corner of John 
Prince Park, consisting of 114 acres, as a 
permanent home for PBJC. 

The fall of 1956 found 475 PBJC 
students in their newly constructed 
classrooms on the present campus. Two 
years later. Dr. Harold C. Manor, current 
president, assumed the leadership of 
Palm Beach Junior College. 

For the past 16 years, Dr. Manor has 
witnessed many changes at PBJC. The 
main campus has expanded into almost 
full use, with, continued growth in 
enrollment (now over 7,000 full and 
part-time students), number and variety 
of courses offered, and reputation in the 
academic field. 

Not only has the main campus grown to 
its present state, but also four off campus 
centers have steadily grown. These 
centers are: General Classroom building 
at FAU; Palm Beach Gardens, and 
. Suncoast High Schools; Roosevelt Junior 
High School; and the Glades Center in 
Belle Glade, Fla. 

Ironically, each of these centers are 
larger now than PBJC was at its 

The recent construction on Phase II of 
the Criminal Justice Department is 
evidence of the continuing growth of 
Palm Beach Junior College. If current 
trends of growth continue, PBJC will 
become not only the oldest junior college 
in the state, but also the most advanced 
in academic circles. 

62 Hours Needed 

JG Graduation Requirements 

General requirements for 
graduation from Palm Beach 
Junior College must be met by 
all students, without regard to 
the degree to be granted. Final

GPA Informafion 

Although the average course 
load for a student at PBJC is 
considered to be 16 semester 
hours, a student who enrolls for 
a minimum of 12 semester- hours 
is classified a full-time student. 

Most students are not allowed 
to carry more than 18 semester 

However, a student whose 
name appears on the Dean's 
List for the previous term and 
who has at least a 3.0 
cumulative average, may enroll 
in a maximum of 21 semester 
hours during a regular term and 

14 semester hours during the 12 
week Spring Term. 

It is recommended that 
students with below 2.0 GPA 
limit their course load to 12

average (GPA) is computed by 
dividing his total number of 
quality points by his total 
number of hoiirs attempted.

follows: A, four points per credit 
hour; B, three points per credit 
hour; C, two points per credit

Attendance Policy 

An attendance policy which allows a student to be 
absent from a maximum of 25 per cent of his class 
meetings was instituted by the college in 1972 through the 
cooperation of the Student Government, Faculty Senate, 
and the administration. 

•Students have complete responsibility for registering 
and withdrawing from classes. If a student does not 
withdraw from a class, he will receive the letter grade he 
has earned. The instructor has the option of dropping a 
stifdent after the 25 per cent absence level has been 

The two week withdrawal limitation prior to the start of 
final exams will be enforced, with these exceptions: 

The student may completely withdraw from school right 
up to the start of the final exam week and during the 
course of both Spring I and II, the student may withdraw 
from class up to one week before the final exam. 

It will be the student's responsibility to complete the 
official withdrawal procedures for assured withdrawal. 

A student will receive an automatic "F" if he misses 
more than 25 per cent of his class meetings unless he 
withdraws in accordance with the above stated policies. 

In the case of extreme extenuating circumstances a 
student may, with the approval of the instructor, be 
permitted to remain in the course beyond the 25 per cent 
maximum, thereby receiving the grade earned.

School Starts With A Bang 

By Jay Kravetz 
Photo Editor 

A bullet in his head and two in his chest, 
Milton Lee Butler disarmed his assailant, 
Shirley Bell, after an August 26 shooting in 
the parking lot of the main campus. 

According to Security Chief Grant 

Bartels, the shooting took place at about 

12:15 p.m., on the first day of classes for 

the fall term. 

According to Bartels, Miss Bell, of 1369 
Uth Street West Palm Beach, had told him 
that she was a student attending classes, 
"1 later foUnd out she was not a student," 
said Bartels. 

Butler, of 1001 Sapodilla Avenue, West 
Palm Beach, is also not a student. John F. 
Kennedy Hospital would not divulge 
Butler's condition. 

Bartels' explained the shooting "Butler 

was waiting for Miss Bell in the parking 
lot. When Miss Bell went to her car, Butler 
approached her, at which point she shot 
him three times with a .22 caliber pistol. 

"He then struggled with her for the gun 
and she fell and cut her face. When Butler 
picked up the gun. Miss Bell ran into the 
Administrative Office, while Butler tried to 
drive away. 

"Butler did get to the college's west 
parking lot at which point he got dizzy and 

was driven to Kennedy Hospital by two 
coeds," Bartel continued. 

"In the meantime a witness ran to the 
Campus Police Room where I was notified 
of the shooting. On my way to the parking 
lot 1 bumped into Miss Bell. She admitted . 
shooting at Butler, but did not know whether 
she had hit him," 

Although Butler would not press 
charges, Miss Bell was charged with 
aggravated assault by the police.

JC Breaks Record 

By Bruce Moore 

Enrollment at JC has 
reached an all-tinae high, 
according to tentative figures 
released last week by 
Registrar Laurence May- 

The 1973 enrollment of 
7,071, was increased this 
year by seven per cent 
(7,667), five per cent more 
than the projected two per 
cent increase. 

JC's current figures for 
the main campus and the 
three branches are as 

-5961 Main Campus 

-560 Palm Beach Gardens 

-398 Belle Glade 

-500 mixed enrollments 
(students who are enrolled at 
more than one campus.) 

Mayfield attributes the 
unexpected increase to the 
economic situation. "Many 
students could not find jobs 
so they came back to 
school," said Mayfield. 
"The attractiveness of some 
of our technical programs is 
also a big factor." 

This year's registration 
was one of the smoothest 
sign-ups in recent years, 
according to Mayfield. 
"There were some long lines 
a few times - but they didn't 
last for long. 


"Even I have to stand in Une longer at the grocery store 
than some of these kids at JC."

Justin Storms Cafeteria 

By Brian Crowley 

Staff Writer 

Dr. Neal Justin, candidate for the United States 
Senate, visited the JC campus last Thursday and 
spoke to an estimated 150 students in the cafeteria. 

Justin hand-shook his way from table to table, 
answering questions and passing out campaign 
literature. Casually dressed and smiling, he spoke 
with the students for forty five minutes on a variety 
of issues, including inflation and taxation. 

"An "Independent" Democrat, on leave from 
Florida Atlantic University, Justin has had 
previous governmental experience as a member of 
the Arizona state Legislature. While a member of 
the legislature he was chairman of two 
subcommittees and the spearhead of a movement 
for tax equalization.

Testing Director Donald Cook has 
announced that there are no places left for 
the September 19 College Level 
Examination Program (CLEP) exam. 

However, the October 17 CLEP test is 
open for applications filed too late for the 
September test. Also, new applications are 
being accepted. Students interested 
should apply at the Testing Center, AD 5. 
, Through passage of CLEP itests, . 
students may earn a maximum of 27 
semester hours of college credit by 
examination. Students may CLEP any of 
the following general exams:

following( BY 100, PS 101, CY 100. 

MATH: MS 106. 

HUMANITIES: EH 203 and either MC

at least three weeks in advance of the 
CLEP Exam if a student wishes to take a 
subject exam. 

Testing Director Cook is pleased with the 
CLEP program began last March. Already 
one student, Tom Knippel, who entered JC 
as a freshman in 1973, has "CLEPed" an 

entire year's credits. Knippel is now a 
junior at the University of Florida. 

According to Cook, the only drawback 
thus far in the program is that the test must 
be limited to 50 students each month 
because of the small amount of space in the 
current testing room, SC 26.

A recent change in 
attendance policy allows an 
instructor to drop a student 
from a class instead of failing 
him, as proposed by the 
Faculty Senate last summer. 

It states students are 
responsible for withdrawing 
from a class and if they 
ignore this option, the 
instructor can drop him after 
a 25% absence without 
failing him, as the previous 
policy stated. 

The Faculty Senate, which 
proposed the change, con-

checking into the possibility of using a

Breakfast, Lunch AND Dinner 

Cafe Extends Hours 

By Gwen Constock 
Staff Writer 

The cafeteria is extending its hours to be available to the majority 
of the student body. Jay MacLees ,■ manager, hopes the students will 
take advantage of the new schedule. The new schedule is 7 a.m. to 9 
p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Fridays. The 
cafeteria is now serving breakfast and offers a snackline of 
hamburgers, hotdogs, french fries, etc., to the night students. 

Problems with the new hours? Yes, as far as students are 
concerned. Jay MacLjees replies, "Not enough students are aware 
that we are available to them in the morning and at night. Breakfast 
seems to be picking up but night service is poor. The break for 
classes is only 15 minutes and it's a long walk from some places on 
campus. Some students are not even aware we serve breakfast. But 
the main cause is too many people just do not know the cafeteria 

MacLees who has been at the Palm Beach Junior College for two 
years and is employed by the Professional Food Service 
Management, Inc., is greatly aware of students's -need to 

"I think the cafeteria is a center point at the college and that's 
good," say MacLees. "There is a SAC Lounge but not many 
students use it. The cafeteria seems to be the place where you meet 
friends, grab a cup of coffee, and sit down and rest your feet. There 
is no other place on campus that I can think of where the students 
can gather." 

The Professional Food Service Management, Inc., has been 
serving PBJC for the last three years. They offer a hot lunch line 
from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and a corner bar. The comer bar is on a 
trial time of 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and serves ice cream, hot dogs, 
pretzels, sandwiches and drinks. MacLees said that there will be 
milk shakes and pizza offered m the very near future. 

The cafeteria manager hopes that students who have any 
suggestions place them in the suggestion box located in the 
cafeteria at the comer bar. 

^^ *"»^'?D^Hlr,*i?^?tl*'^^^*^"^ *'°"" * ^'i'='=ess, MacLees

Board Grants Pay Boost 

JC's District Board of 
Trustees met throughout the 
summer resulting in a boost 
in employees wages, and a 
pending purchase of land for 
a permanent Glades Center 

Employees of JC were 
given a $600 cost of living 
adjustment for the 1973-74 
fiscal year at the June 
meeting. The trustees voted 

unanimously for the adjust- 
ment after Dr. Harold C. 
Manor, PBJC President, 
made the recommendation. 

Manor cited an unexpected 
fiscal year-end (June 30), 
fund balance that was 
$121,191 higher than earlier 
estimates, as his reason for 
the pay increase. 

Previously, the board had 
granted a $50 per month 

saiaiy increase for the 
1974-75 fiscal year to 
classified employees and a 
four per cent increase to 
teachers and administrators.

For U.S. Senate: 

13 Vie For Nomination 

By Marc Bressler 

In the race for the U.S. Senate 
seat of Sen. Edward Gurney, 
R- Winter Park (who dropped out 
after having been indicted by a 
federal grand jury on charges of 
illegal campaign practices), there 
are thirteen contenders; 11 
Democrats and two Republlicans 
are vying for their respective 
party nominations in the Sept. 10 

The candidates are: 


Cape Canaveral, still another 

a relative unknown and 
newcomer to politics; 

JACK ECKERD.R-Belleaire, for- 
mer chairman of the board of a 
self-built drugstore corporation 
who ran for governor in 1970; 

BILL GUNTER, D-Orlando, 
U.S. Congressman for Florida's 

5th district; 

Public Service Commissioner; 


Frostproof, another newc omer to 
the Senate race; 

see, president of the Florida 

NEAL JUSTIN, D-Boca Raton, 
professor at Florida Atlantic 

cola, still another newcomer to 
the Senate race; 


Miami, Florida legislator; 


former Florida Secretary of State; 

former millionaire of "Dare To Be 
Great" fame; 


former president of the Florida 
Bar Association. 

Ever since the Washington 
Post broke the Watergate story, 
the majority of candidates across 
the country have been campaign- 
ing on either their honesty or 
their prior non-involvement in 

Young, Turner and Justin all 
declare that they are not part of 
the corrupt political machines 
that allegedly exist in all forms of 

"I've been told to give up 
because I lacked a political 
machine, big money, and long 
term political experience. Dr. 
Justin declared. "Look at the 
corrupt mess we've reaped 
because this was the way to 
Washington. 4' 

But the other candidates, 
notably Hawkins, Pettigrew, 
Stone, Gunter, and Home, stand 
on their records of service and 
stress that not all politicians are 
"Watergaters". Hawkins, in fact, 
is a staunch defender of former 
president Richard Nixon, and 
says he vvas misled by those 
around him. 

Financial disclosure laws have 
made some politicians nervous, 
thinking that voters associate 
wealth with special interest 
groups. However, drugstore 
magnate Jack Eckerd feels his 
wealth is an asset. Eckerd 
contends that, because of his 
wealth, he will not be tempted by 
those special interest groups. 

The main issue in the campaign 
is the problem of inflation and 
how to cope with it. All the 
candidates recognize the problem, 

but few agree on just how to 

Young feels that interest rates 
are way too high and that some 
controls are needed. 

Pettigrew favors selective 
controls to break up high profit 
earning monopolies such as oil 
corporations and the auto 

Both Stone and Justin seek 
better balanced government 
spending as one solution to 
halting inflation. 

Higginbottom, who has travel- 
ed and lived in numerous foreign 
countries, is promoting the 
concept of a world court to settle 
international disputes. 

Conservatives Vs. 
Incunfibent Askew 

By Marc Bressler 

"I ran a positive campaign four years ago against an 
incumbent" Gov. Reubin Askew stated recently, "and I'm not 
likely to do anything less when I'm running as incutnbent." 

The 46 year old governor of Florida seems to be doing just 
that. Askew is riding high on his popularity with both the public 
and the press, and so far has ignored the conservative challenge 
by his opponents in the Sept. 10 Democratic primary. 

This is a far cry from 1970 when then Sen. Askew regularly 
criticized former governor Claude Kirk. But polls have shown 
Askew so far ahead of the other candidates that he is just biding 
his time until the November general election when he will clash 
with Republican Jerry Thomas. Thomas, the only Republican 
gubernatorial candidate, will not be on the Sept. 10 ballot as he is 

Hoping to replace Askew as governor are: 

LT. GOV. TOM ADAMS, who has split politically from Askew 
after his 1973 censure by the Florida House, has received the 
largest amount of publicity among the challengers. Adams has 
issued a series of "Dear Reubin" letters to the governor 
criticizing him and his programs. To date, no major revelations 
that could damage Askew's chances for reelection have surfaced. 
His running mate is Burl McCormick, former mayor of Hialeah 

NORMAN BIE, a Clearwater attorney and newcomer to 
politics who is attempting to gain the support of pro-George 
Wallace voters in the state. His running mate is Lake Worth 
realtor Florence Keen. 

BEN HILL GRIFFIN a millionaire citrus grower from 
Frostproof who is a former state senator. Griffin barely made the 
filing deadline for the office. His wife, Ellie, is running for the 
lieutenant governor post, but Griffin plans to abolish the position 
if elected, 

Of the three challengers, only Adams has made any real 
promises. He wants to reduce the state sales tax rate from four 
to three per cent, lower license plate costs, exempt utility 
companies from the corporate income tax, and establish some 
form of legalized gambling in the state. 

Bie has charged that state taxes are too high and want to roll 
back state spending. He is against busing for desegragation 
purposes, another major conflict with Askew. Bie has also 
pledged to. try to repeal the utility company income taxes. 

Griffin has called for the abolishment of the office of lieutenant 
governor and says his wife will serve without pay until that is 
accomplished. He is in favor of reducing the governor's term to 
a single six year period instead of the current two four year 

Adams, Bie, and Griffin have all attacked Askew on the charge 
that he is too liberal, that too many people are on the state 
payroll, and that is his popularily is a creation of the press. 

Askew's 1974 legislative proposals include lowering the 
ceiling on school property taxes from 10 to eight mills, providing 
more money for mass transportation, and requiring all elected 
officials, candidates and appointees to delcare sources of 
income. He endorses the Equal Rights Amendment and favors 

Askew's running state Senator Jim Williams of Ocala.

Involvement: An Idea 

Reubin Askew 


The following article is 
written so that it may 
encompass all those who sit 
around on their fat wonder- 
ing why the hell there's 
nothing to do, why the world 
is so down on them, why the 
government is so screwed 
up, why they can't ever get 
ahead or why doesn't 
someone fix something that's 
wrong. I suppose that takes 
care of just about everyone at 
one time or another, 

I think the basic reason 
why I became involved and 
why I urge others to do 
likewise is that my money 
and my life were being 
manipulated by some force 
and I didn't even have a say 
in it. 

So, to all you people 
milling around and out on 
this campus, stop for a 
minute and ponder these 

carefully to the answers your 
mind conjures up, pick up a 
student handbook or ask 
some head muck-e-muck or 
stop in and see someone on 
the executive board, and find 
out what organization on this 
campus best fits you and 
your ideas, then proceed to 
put your thoughts into 
motion and don't let little 
things mess you up.

not be complete unless I

One Good Term 
Deserves Another 

The choice is clear-cut. Florida has had four years of honest, 
open government in the public interest under the direction of 
Governor Reubin Askew.^ 

Askew's accomplishments shine as an example of responsive 
leadership and he should be returned to office forthwith. 

Askew kept his promises made in 1970 and did far more for the 
people of Florida in the past four years. He was instrumental in 
enacting the following legislation for the benefit of the people. 

Corporate Income Tax 

Oil Spill Law 

Financial Disclosure 

Mass Transportation improvements 

The governor has supported such controversial causes as busing 
and the Equal Rights Amendment, both of which he stood firm on. 
He has also been active in anti-pollution efforts and laws to protect 
the environment. 

Askew has made important strides in such programs as consumer 
protection, law enforcement, health care and senior citizen services, 
workmen's benefits, rehabilitation programs, and housing. 

Askew was also instrumental in the establishment of a statewide 
grand jury to investigate organized crime. 

His selection for lieutenant governor, state Senator Jjm Williams, 
is an able and willing addition to the ticket; Williams, is an able and 
experienced legislator who will be a valuable asset to the citizens of 

The voters should give the Askew- Williams ticket a vote of 
confidence Sept. 10 in the Democratic gubernatorial primary.

took approximately two 
weeks for the smoke to clear 
and let me see the situation, 
as it really was. 

There were far too many 
things on this campus that 
dealt with the students lives, 
policies that planned their 
whole curricuUums, organ- 
izations that had hold of the 
strings that made a student's

situation a little easier or

Rape Defense 


Participation Urged 

A Monterey, California woman is on trial for first degree murder. 
She is accused of murdering a 300-pound man who aided a companion 
in her abduction and subsequent rape. 

Inez Garcia claims that two men entered her home and waited to 
meet with Fred Medrano. When Medrano arrived, a fight broke out 
among the three men. Ms. Garcia persuaded the two men to leave and 
accompanied them to the door where upon they seized her and dragged 
her outside the house. They then raped her. 

The prosecution says that there was no rape and that after the fight 
in the house both Medrano and Ms. Garcia set out with guns to find the 
men. They allegedly found them and shot at them. Medrano is 
charged as an accomplice in the murder. 

For the purposes of this column, I am going to assume that Ms. 
Garcia was raped. Apparently Ms. Garcia is qiiite a personage in 
California. Tlie feminists in the San Francisco Bay area have been 
writing about her actions in articles, underground newspapers and 

Although I don't agree with the lengths to which she chose to defend 
herself (murder is never defendable) 1 believe that it is a promising 
indication of women's new attitudes towards rape. I hope that women 
will no longer succumb passively to rape. 

:Incidents such as this will, at the very least, give men a second 
thought before they commit rape. 

FBI statistics suggest that rape is now the most widely committed 
violent crime in the United States. I think it is an understatement to 
suggest that current attitudes and actions by women toward rape are 

In the past, women have been told to passively accept the rapist's 
action to avoid possible murder. I, for one, wouldn't believe a rapist if 
he told me to\,submit quietly or he would murder me. I believe that 
women shouM learn to defend themselves, and fight back. We're 
bound to win sometimes and if we don't, well, rape is still the most 
frequent cause for murder among criminal acts committed against 


Whether or not the 
student body of this school 
reaHzes it, they are repre- 
sented by a fine and capable 
group of Student Govern- 
ment officials. 

But the potential of the 
Student Government is in 
many ways lying dormant. 
The college now, as in the 
past, has primarily concer- 
ned itself with affairs 
associated directly with the 
school. I and many others 
feel that there is an ever 
pressing need for the faculty, 

S.G., and hopefully the 
student body to actively 
participate in and involve 
themselves with affau-s not 
only associated with the 
school, but with community, 
state and possibly natioiial 
affairs as well. The potential 
that lies within the confines 
of this campus are enorm- 
ous. In relation to the 
concerns of this letter, a 
resource such as this is a 
horrible waste to sit and rest 
idle. Where beneficial 
involvement is possible, 
those areas should be 

investigated. Problems, 
valid grievances , and the like 
of some substance should be 
taken up by a concerned 
person, group, committee, 
organization and actions 
should be initiated to correct 
coverups, injustices, wrong- 
doings and the like. It is to 
the benefit of us all that 
practices such as this are 

I am sure that many 

people are aware of what a 

reputation does for a college

With all the shortages that 
face us today in this ever 
changing world of ours, we 
can usually prepare our- 
selves for the hardest of 
hardships. Take away our 
gas, our oil, our beer, ■ even 
our toilet paper - and we can 
still be happy. But the 
ordeal of "doing without" 
becomes too much to bear 
when we learn that, mamma 
mia, that there is a shortage 
of pasta in Italy. 

That's right, folks - the 
home of the Pope and 
parmigiana - has let United 
Press International know 
that a severe shortage of 
pasta among residents has 
occurred . Authorities are 
blaming the shortage on - 
you guessed it - the 
consumers. I have to take 

that explanation with a grain 
of salt and a strand of 

Wholesalers report that 
too many housewives are 
stocking up on their favorite 
form of paslar— and thus 
creating a "ravioli rush" to 
area groceries for the 
inexpensive food, emptying 
the shelves. 

Spokesmen for the Italian 
government and certain 
officials in the Italian cabinet 
(how could all those guys fit 
into a little cabinet, I 
wonder?) are saying that 
certain jokes made during 
the monologue of talk show 
host Johnny CarsonoUi 
caused the shortage. The 
show, which has an 
estimated 20 miUion Itahan 

viewers nightly, sent mot- 
hers scrambling to aU-night 
stores to purchase large 
amounts of spaghetti, lasag- 
na noodles, linguine, ravioli, 
and bottles of Elmer's glue. 
The glue shortage has been 
explained as Italian peasants 
misinterpreting the word 
"pasta", confusing it vrith 

What CarsonoUi was 
supposed to have said, was, 
"Even the Pope has been 
having a hard time buying 
pasta - he only likes 
manicotti and zittinni shells 
because they're holy." 

Network spokesmen have 
apologized for the mistake 
and have publicly criticized

Beachcomber Endorses: 

Florida Cabinet Posts 

U.S. Senate 


STATE - Don Pride, a 
veteran reporter who was an 
intregal part of the Askew 
administration before he 
resigned as press secretary 
to run for this state and 
Cabmet post. His honor and 
integrity are above question; 
the same dedication and 
perserverance that went into 
his years as an investigative 
reporter for some of the 
state's top newspapers will 
prevail in the post of 
Secretary of State. 

Gerald Lewis, a Miami 
attorney and former state 
senator. Lewis, a hard-wor- 
king legislator both in the 
state House and Senate, has 
championed many worth- 
while causes and will be a 
welcome replacement for 

Fred Dickinson, Jr., the 
current officerholder. Dic- 
kinson is under investigation 
by a federal grand jury. 

His impressive legislative 
record includes serving 
consumer and taxpayer 
interests, advocating sup- 
porting the government in 
the sunshuae, no-fault divor- 
ce, environmental protect- 
ion, and needed reform. We 
feel he will be a welcome 

Shreve, a Merritt Island 
attorney and former state 
representative. Shreve, who 
is recognized statewide for 
his public concern as a 
lawyer and in the state 
legislature, has proven 
himseff a servant of the 

public. The incumbent, 
Thomas O'Malley, is also 
under investigation by a 
grand jury, and such clouds 
over these offices need to be 
dispelled. Jack Shreve has 
the governmental know-how 
and desire to do just that. 

EDUCATION - Ralph Tur- 
hngton, former state legisla- 
tor and current Commissio- 
ner of Education.. Turlington 
was appointed to this 
position by Gov. Askew 
recently, and is undoubtedly 
the best man to continue on 
in this post. 

Turlington has served 24 
productive years in the 
House and 14 years on the 
Education Committee. His 
experience and his record 
should be enough for him to 
retain that post. 

Republican - Jack Eckerd 

The strongest points that can be made about Jack Eckerd is his 
unquestioned integrity, his approach to government, and his 

Eckerd is running against Public Service Commissioner Paula 
Hawkins in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate. While some 
candidates have been harping on their opponents' wealth, we feel that 
Jack Eckerd' s is an asset. 

Eckerd is a self-made man whose name adorns several hundred 
drugstores across the state. He built his empire, from which he 
recently resigned as chairman of the board, without "special favors". 
Because he is a millionaire several times over, those special interest 
groups do not exert influence on him. 

Jack Eckerd is the best of the field and deserves his party's 



Lending a refreshing voice to today's political scene is Dr. Neal 
Justin, professor at Florida Atlantic University and candidate for the 
Democratic U.S. Senate nomination. 

Justin is no newcomer to government; he was a legislator in Arizona 
in the middle sixties. He wants to be known as a representative of the 
"Middle Americans" and disavows any association with big business or 
special groups. 

Justin would be a welcome replacement for the indictment-plagued 
Ed Gurney and those who confuse wealth and power with talent and 
dedication. He favors a national Sunshine Law, stronger consumer and 
environmental protection, a halt to inflation, and low cost public 
transportation - all immediate concerns of the people. 

While he contends to be a spokesman for the Middle Americans, we 
feel he would make a fine spokesman for ALL Floridians, and help us 
get the government we deserve.

The music they perform ranges 
from the Doobie Brothers to the 
Carpenters, and includes excerpts 
from Superstar, Godspell, and 
more. According to Ms. Johnson 
the Pacesetters sing "Anything 
that is up-to-date." The show 
varies, including pop, rock, folk, 
jazz, and blues. There are some 
solos done by the Pacesetters, but 
the main interest is on the entire 

The Pacesetters are well-known

Ms. Johnson has been the

F.Z.'s latest. The combination of harmless, humorous, satirical 
Zappa dialog/vocals, and a high quality sound performed by an array 
of musicians with varying musical backgrounds - from rock, to 
classical, to jazz - makes this album quite a unique listening 

It features such personnel as violinist Jean Luc Ponty, now with 
Mahavishnu Orchestra; violinist Don "Sugar Cane" Harris, previously 
playing with John Mayall; drummer Jim Gordon, who recorded with 
Traffic and^eals and Crofts; drummer Ansley Dunbar, veteran Mother 
:presently playing gigs with David Bowie); Jack Bruce :(forraerly with 
Cream;, who plays the dynamic bass line in the title song 
"Apostrophe"; jazz-man George Duke on keyboards; plus many 
long-time devoted mothers. And of course, the ingenious mastermind 
himself, F.Z., who composes and plays a guitar that puts all of those 
popularly labeled "greatest guitar players" to shame (he always has). 

It is a little more commercial than his previous accomplishments - 
but without losing a bit of that incomparable, magical Zappa touch. (In 
fact, this one actually hit the charts!) It's the kind of album that gets 
better and better each time you listen because there is so much depth 
and so many "little things" to hear. You'll notice something new each 
time around. 

It's such an expression of many countless, original musical ideas 
packed nicely onto a single disc that makes it well worth your buy, and 
in fact, one of the hottest bargains on the record shelf. 

Teeny-boppers be forewarned: This record is only good for those 
persons with ears.

reputation is a good one, but 
the school's betterment 
through effective involve- 
ment in community affairs, 
improvement of internal 
situations and the like could 
really be appreciated by the 
student who is planning to 
use the degree given here for 
a job opportunity, or one who 
is planning a traiisfer to 
another college. Though an 
outlook such as this may not 
interest everyone enrolled at 
PBJC, unless your trust fund 
is being made avdlable to 
you at an early age, or in the 
course of philosophising you 
decide that elbow on knee 
and hand in head is your way 
of life, then the choices for 
making it in this world have 
been shaven close. Shallow 
and materialistic it may 
sound, but the tone is a very 
familiar one to all of us. 
JC is a commuter college 


and there is an extremely 
small percentage of students 
interested in school activi- 
ties. Who can blame them? 
JC offers very little that is 
attractive to students other 
than an education , with the 
exception of those students 
interested or participating in 
athletics, music, drama, 
S.G., etc. It is my opinion 
that student government 
should act as a hub enlisting 
activities beneficial not only 
to the school and its 
reputation, but the commun-

GOP'S Thomas: Off And Running 


Former State Senator 
To Face Demo Victor 

By Debbie Thompson 
Staff Writer 

While most candidates arc 
directing their energies 
towards distributing hand- 
bills, meeting the public, and 
organizing their campaigns 
for the September 10 
primary election, Jerry 
Thomas is faced with a 
different dilemma. 

Former president of the 
Florida Senate, Thomas, of 
Jupiter, running without 
opposition for the Republi- 
can nomination for governor, 
concedes that the overriding 
disadvantage in running 
unopposed is the lack of 
statevride coverage by the 
news media." 

"There are so many other 
candidates in the other 
parties to- be covered," 
Thomas explains, "that the 
press just doesn't have time 
for you. As a result, you 
suffer a loss of identity and the 
genera] public seldom hears 
your name until after the 
primaries. Then they say, "I 
didn't even know he was 

"But running unopposed 
has its advantages, too, 
Thomas added, "You're not 
worried about an adversary 
lashing out directly at you, 
instead of concentrating on 
the office that he running 
for. As a result, you're not 
subjected to the prospects of 
a bitter primary election; and 
also, you save money and 
time, which enables you to 
direct your energies towards 
organizing your campaign in 
the different counties for 
after the primaries." 

Jerry Thomas, presently 
serving as Chairman of the 
Board for the First National 
Marine Bank in Riviera 
Beach, began his political 
career in 1960 by being 
elected to two consecutive 
terms in the Florida House of 
Representatives, graduating 
to an eight year stint in the 
Senate in 1964. Highlights 
of his political career include 
being the Most Outstanding 
First Term Member of both 
the House and the Senate, 
'Most Valuable Member of 
the Senate in 1970, and 
president of the Florida 
Senate during the 1970-72 
term. He also served as 
director of the Florida 
Securities Commission, 

Thomas has backed legis- 
lation dealing with the three 
year college degree allow- 
ance, setting up a kindergar- 
ten program in Florida, 
student loans, requiring 
college professors to spend 
at least twelve hours in the 
classroom each week, and 
stronger school discipline 
(explaining that "On the 
lower levels, some teachers 
fear for their own safety in 
the classroom.") 

He also strongly opposed 
the Open Bedroom policy, 
which Governor Askew 
quickly approved. 

"What a young person 
does is their own business," 
Thomas stated, "but not in 
the taxpayers dormitories. 
We've got to draw the line 

Thomas, a resident of 
Jupiter, Florida, was born in 

West Palm Beach and 
attended Palm Beach Junior 
College, Florida State Uni- 
versity, and FAU. He served 
aS a midshipman in the Navy 
and a captain in the U.S. 
Marine Corps, and he feels 
that some of his special 
qualifications include his 
experience and graduate 
work in government, his 
Masters degree in Education 
and his successful exper- 
ience in business and 
finance. He noted that, if 
elected, he will be the first 
governor with such an 
extensive degree of business 
and management exper- 

Running in the Democratic 
race for governor, nominees 
include the present Lieute- 

Former Sen. Jerry Thomas 

nant Governor Tom Adams; 
Norman Die, an attorney 
from Clearwater; citrus 
magnate Ben Hill Griffin, 
and the incumbent Governor 
Reubin Askew, on whom 
Thomas blames Florida's 
"excessive" government - 

Pointing out that the crime 
rate in Orange County is 
high than in Cook County, 
Chicago, Thomas said "We 
need to make Florida a safer 
place in which to live." He 
also noted that crime has ' 
increased in some counties 
as much as 70%, and a 
violent crime is committed in 
Florida every 11 minutes. 

"In this state, for 
instance," Thomas went on, 
"it's a capital crime to rape a 

lO-yr. old girl, but if she' 
11, you might as v/ell forg- 
it, that law doesn't apply. 
want that changed." 

Thomas and his wifi 
Jeannie, have five childrei 
one of which attended JC tas 
term. His 19 year old sot 
Kenny, will be substitutitt 
schoolwork for experienf 
when he takes to ih 
campaign trails with lii 
father this fall.

being his favorite pastime- 
Thomas added that lie doe 
two things every mornitif

Candidate Visits JC Campus 

Dr. Justin: 'Middle America Has A Voice' 

Dr. NeaUnstln, and Us wife Shiriey, pose for a primary campaign 
photo. Justin, a professor at FAU on sabbatical, is a candidate for 
the U.S. Senate. He visited the PBJC campus Angnst 29 to tallc with 

By Lynn Kalber 
Feature Editor 

"The average American 
feels excluded, knows he's 
being used, and is not going 
to fight back. . .I'm going to 
fight back!" 

Those statements explain 
the reasons behind Dr. Neal 
Justin's quest for a U.S. 
Senate seat in the Sept. 10 

Justin, a professor at 
Florida Atlantic University, 
visited the JC campus 
Thursday, August 29, to talk 
to the students. 

Although registered as an 
"Independent Democrat", 
he claims to be more 
"Independent" than "Dem- 
ocrat", and considers him- 
self a middle American. He 
is determined to get the big 
business out of politics and 
to bring democracy back to 
the U.S. 

The FAU professor be- 
lieves that people have 
become "disillusioned" by 
politicians in the past who 
have, let money waUc all over 
them. In the case of his 
opponents, Justin claims 
that their three biggest 

campaign backers are buil- 
ders and developers, attor- 
neys, and food processors. 
This is mteresting, he added, 
especially when the candi- 
dates' main platforms are for 
environmental control and 
against factory pollution. 

Recently a Miami Herald 
columnist wrote about Jus- 
tin's four biggest opponents 
and didn't mention him 
once. When questioned, the 
columnist replied that he 
only wrote about the people 
he thought were going to 
win, according to Justin. 

He believes that money is 
the root of all his problems 
and ours, too. Justin says 
there is an unwritten law that 
a candidate must have 
1100,000 before being con- 
sidered a major candidate. 
So far, his campaign funds 
amount to $5,000 - $2,500 in 
contributions and $2,500 of 
his own. 

As Justm walked around 
the campus, several students 
approached him with ques- 
tions concerning his plat- 

On the question of 
amnesty he replied, "I

When asked wltiy t 
thought the Consumer Pii 
tection Plan failed I' 

replied that it was because( 
big interests. 

Dr. Justm is in favor of

He is against the seninril

"Come Saturday morning, I'm going away with my friend - We'll 
Saturday spend 'til the end of the day . " Do you recognize the lyrics? 
They're from the song "Come Saturday Morning" which is from the 
motion picture "The Sterile Cuckoo". I can't get the melody out of 
my head thtese days. 

If you've had the pleasure of reading the book, seeing the picture 
of at least hearing the song, you might even make sense of this 
column. ' 'Just I and my friend, we'll travel for miles in our Saturday 

"The Sterile Cuckoo", by John Nichols, was published in 1965. It 
quickly became a best seller and in 1969 was made into the movie. 

The story portrays the romantic college experiences of the 
unlikely duo: Pookie Adams, atrusting and emotional girl; and John 
Payne, contrastingly unemotional and square. The experiences take 
place on and around a New England college in the late '50's. Most 
importantly, and herein lies the importance of this article, "The 
Sterile Cuckoo" glorifies the joy of independence most freshmen 
experience in finally leaving home and going away to college. 

This is a community college and most students that are in 
attendance probably live at home. But still, there is a certain 
amount of independence that they will enjoy and more likely cherish 
for many years to come. 

Somehow this ties in with me wanting to dedicate this space today 
to welcoming you to school. I certainly hope that you will be active 
and that you will keep yours eyes and ears ever open to the 
many sight > and sounds that will accoijipany your stay at college. 
Good luck "and we will remember long after Saturday's gone."

Charles A. Lindbergh, the 
heroic young man who flew the 
Atlantic by himself back in 1927, 
died August 27 in a small 
Hawaiian cottage overlooking the 

Lindbergh was as far as we 
presently know our first private 
citizen to become a great public 
hero. Others before him were 
military and pofitical figures 
dealing heroically with problems 
and dangers of their times . 

On the 20th of May in 1927 
when he set out to cross the 
Atlantic, no one ordered, asked or 
expected him to accomplish bis 
mission. Lindbergh chose the act 
himself, performed it himself, 
and became a living legend 

Lindbergh's single wing; one 
engine plane, called the "Spirit of 
Saint Louis" got him all the way 
to Paris France. In Paris, 
Lindbergh's arrival was the 
biggest news since the end of 
Worid War I, and thousands of 
Frenchmen crowded Paris' Le 
Bourget Airfield to see if he could 
make it, and when he touched 
down the wheels of his 
monoplane it was a time of 

Lindbergh, a former stunt flier 

and air pilot, became an 
international celebrity. A fame 
that was to last him for the 
remainder of his life, changing 
him' in a frenzied instant from an 
obscure aviator into a historical 

But from that triumph, young 
Lindbergh was dropped into the 
depths of dispair and isolation. 
On March 1, 1932, his young son 
was kidnapped from his crib and 

In more recent times even 
flying to the moon, walking 
around on it, and flying back 
home did not produce the kind of 
emotional hero worship that 
Lindbergh saw in 1927. Perhaps! 
because brave as the astranauts 
were, theirs was a group 
corporate government enterprise, 
and not the accomplishment of a 
single man on his own and alone. 

A couple of years ago in Cape . 
Canaveral when Lindbergh visit- 
ed a rocket launching, it was 
fascinating to observe that the 
astronauts about to fly to the 
moon stood in the utmost respect, 
and even in the awe of a man who 
had flown to Paris. 

And it is interesting to wonder 
what act if any could produce a 

similar public hero today. The 
earth has been explored, the 
mountains have been climbed, 
the seas have been sounded, and 
everyday hundreds of people fly 
where Lindbergh flew. 

Perhaps there are no frontiers 
left for a single person 
performing a single personal feat 
of courage, and the areas that are 
left are in such areas as finding a 
cure for the cancer that overtook 
Lindbergh in the end. 

Flickering Trickle: TV's Black Comedies 

Television, the eternal watch- 
dog of the American Living 
Room, has established itself as 
THE stomping ground for the 
flaunting of any type of 
mass-produced commercialism. 
Any program that can get the 
public (and wallet) interested in a 
sensuous bar of deodorant soap 
must be equally as advantageous 
for any other commodity that 
might come tomind (and does not 
come to mind, like it or not, at 
least once every ten minutes of 
show.) This philosophy has led to 
the current trend of one 
"successful" program leading in 
a whole avalanche of similar 
programs. . 

In the past, we have watched m 
horror as the last lonely moan 
flickered across the living room 
from the eternal dying cowboy. 
Unscathed, we then trembled in 
our socks, marveling at the doctor 
who could save a patient from a 
lifetime of torment in the last ten 

minutes of a show. Then, tiring 
from petty domestic quarrels, our 
hearts turned to 'true life' 
adventures. Criminals and police 
types alike have been glamorized 
to a high gloss simonize shine. 
Yet in a time when criminals and 
police seem to mingle together so 
virtuously, our numbed tastebuds 
yearn for a little color. This has 
come to us by way of comedy 
remakes and (gloriosky, can it be 
true?) new comedy shows. 

In our modern arena, where the 
once trodden-down have brought 
new light to themselves, the new 
comedy writers seem resolute to 
hop on the minority bandwagon. 
We now have women .stars- 
(Imagine that) and an even bigger 
first, the new black comedies. 

In with a fresh wind and a 
totally new concept of television: 
the black oriented show! Ah, 
were it only so. But it seems that 
the new 'Black' shows are just a 
full of white -euphemisniii'. as the 

plush vnth middle class comfort 
and nearly devoid of any contact 
with the fair race. The delivery is 
often forced and unrefreshed with 
the bald spots spiced up with a 
little canned laughter. What we 
end up with is a tasteless blend of 
white ethnic humor mixed with 

that it's-just-like-any-other-com- 
edy-show touch . 

These faults can only be 
corrected with the use of black 
writers or, more importantly, 
writers more interested in the 
black audience than what the 
black audience will buy,

Local Standouts [For Football 

Will Run For JC I 

Ken Anderson and Mike Bell, two former Palm Beach County J 
track standouts, have transferred to PBJC to run cross country. h 
Bell is a transfer student from Florida State where he did not! 
compete actively in track or cross country. I 

"Heft FSU after a year because I thought I was paying too muchj 
money to be an undecided major," Bell said. The guidancel 
counselors in Tallahassee suggested that it might be less- 
expensive to go to PBJC since it is closer to home. " 

Bell captained the track and cross country teams as a Senior at i 
Cardinal Newman in West Palm but said he enjoyed track more J 
than cross country. 

"I run track because I enjoy the sport and I run cross country to : 
get in shape for track, ' ' Bell said. 

Bell won the Suncoast Conference West mile and two-mile ; 
championships with times of 4:33 and 10:08 respectively. 

Anderson did not run an 880 yard race until his last year in high i 
school where he won 17 cconsecutive races for Lake Wortli High; 

His undefeated streak ended in the state meet where he fell to J 
third place despite a time of 1:56.8 which was the best time of his 1 

"I used to run a lot when I was little, " said Anderson. 

"I was always running up and down the street near my home." 

"Even though I enjoyed sports, I never thought I would be verj' ; 
good at them ", said Anderson. "Hike football and track best." 

"I decided to be a physical fitness major because I am a sports; 
nut," said Anderson. "I would like to go into the field of coaching 
so I can help young kids learn to participate in athletics. ' ' 

Anderson said he would also like to give professional track a try 
"if I can get into good enough shape." 

"I didn't think I would run after high school," Anderson said. 
"I wasn't doing any running at all in college." 

Anderson had received a scholarship to Albany State, in 
Albany, Georgia, but left after one term "after a financial Iiassle 
with the administration." 

"We are very lucky to have two runners of this caliber on our 
team," said head coach Dick Melear. They were two of the best 
runners in the county and will surely help our team this year. ' '

WRAP Problems Shrouded By Smoke 

By Bruce Moore 
News Editor 

Carlos Banks resigned Thursday as manager of JC's 
troubled campus radio station, WRAP. Assistant 
Manager Dave Drummond was promoted to the position 
of manager by Student Government President Tory 

In a letter to Buckley, Banks said liis resignation "was 
thought over for many days and was not an easy decision 
to make." Banks is leaving this year to go away to 
college and must take on a full-time job. 

Drummond, whom Banks recommended, takes over at 
a time when WRAP, advertised as "Nowhere on Your 
Radio Dial," is having trouble even reaching the 


Scheduled to pipe its rock-centered music to the 
cafeteria and SAC Lounge September 3, WRAP, as of 
this writing, is still not on the air. 

The culprit is WRAP'S S162 amplifer, which went up in 
smoke as the WRAP staff was testing equipment during 
the first week of school. To test the equipment Banks put 
a record on, then left the WRAP studio, next to the 
Beachcomber office, and went to the cafeteria for a 

"There was smoke all over in the WRAP studio when 
we came back," Banks recalled. "We unplugged 
everything. Then we went around smelling, trying to 
find out where it came from." 

After discovering the faulty amp, the WRAP manager 
cautiously waited in hopes of finding another solution. 
On September 3, WRAP's scheduled debut, Banks tried 
to revive an old tube amplifyer in the cafeteria. 

"After a half-hour of testing and complaints, I decided 
to close down the station until we get proper 
equipment," commented Banks. 

Obtaining the "proper equipment" has been another 
headache for the WRAP crew. SG told Banks to make 
tlie purchase order through account No. 710, which, it was 
later discovered, was dryed up.

7-Footer Joins Pacer Cage Squad Campus Senates Sw/ng /nfo Act/on 

Bob Wright, Palm Beach 
Junior College basketball coach, 
will be coaching the tallest 
player in Pacer history when 
Richard Mitchell, a seven-foot- 
er from Michigan, dresses out 
for practice this fall. 

Mitchell, who prefers to be 
called "Tiny", is from a family 
of large stature. His two sisters 
stand 5-10- and 6-1, his eight 
year old brother is 4-5, his 
father is 6-2 and his mother is 

"My mother played pro ball 
for the Baltimore Redheads in a 
women's basketball league," 
said Mitchell, "but that was 
around 1950 before I was bom. " 
"I always have been big," 
says Mitchell. "When I was 
born, I weighed Impounds and 
seven ounces and I was 23 
inches long." 

Being tall has its disadvant- 
ages, however. 

"I used to let it bother me," 
said MitcheD. "When I was 
younger I used to get in fights. 
Everyone wanted to, take me on 
because I was always the 
biggest guy around." 

Another problem that comes 
along with being tall is mobility. 

"Ordinary things like walking 
through a door, moving around 

in a large crowd, getting in and 
out of cars and even sitting at a 
desk in class are harder because 
I have so much of myself to 
coordinate," he said. 

Mitchell began his basketball 
career at Taylor Elementary in 
Taylor, Michigan, a suburb of 
Detroit where he was born. 

"I was in the third grade and 
playing against kids in the fifth 
and sixth grades," Mitchell 
said, adding that he was five 
feet tall at the time. 

He went on to Taylor Center 
for high school where, he grew 
from a six. foot eight inch 
sophomore to a six foot eleven 
inch 240 pound senior. He 
averaged "22.4 points and 12-14 
rebounds in high school. 

After graduation he attended 
Kalamazoo Community College 
for a year. He averaged 16 
points and 12 rebounds before 
leaving school due to a 
scholarship dispute with the 
basketball coach. . 

Mitchell had been working for 
almost six months before Coach 
Wright learned about him 
through John GreenhUl, who 
had coached Gary Brown and 
Tom Jarvis of last year's Palm 
Beach cage squad. 

"I liked the weather in 
Horida, so I thought I would 
come down here to play ball," 

Mitchell said. 

Mitchell arrived in Lake 
Worth fa time to enroll for the 
Winter term and is currently 
attending classes and working 
for the school maintenance 

Wright feels thatMitchell will 
be a big asset to the team. 
"He's a good shooter and is 
very strong-," the coach said. 
"He will be a candidate for 
center and we will need his 
height for reboundmg . ' ' 

Another quality which wE 
a large factor in Mtd 
success as a basketball pV 
according to Wriglit is his de 
"Tiny plays basketball beci 
he enjoys it," said Wright,' 
just because he is tall."

Guest, Controversy, 
In Faculty Senate 

By Brian E. Crowley 
Staff Writer 

The first Faculty Senate meeting of 
the year was opened last Thursday with 
a brief speech by Dr. Edward M. 
Eissey, chairman of the District Board 
of Trustees. Eissey told the Senators 
that the Board of Trustees is taking on a 
new image. 

"I really want to know what it is that 
the Board of Trustees can do to 
cooperate with you in order to make you 
happy and in order to make our 
institution an outstanding institution," 
said Eissey. 

Eissey further pledged that the Board 
of Trustees would "always listen 
attentively, graciously and profession- 
ally to what it is that you (Faculty 
Senators) have to present to us." Dr. 
Eissey is a former Palm Beach Junior 
College student. 

During the next order of business 
student government officers Tory 
Buckley, Dolor Ginchereau, Constance 
Holmes, and David Lang were praised 
and called "the best Student 
Government officials in a long time." 
They were encouraged to continue their 
efforts to surround, themselves with a 
dedicated staff of students and faculty. 

Ten new amendments to the Faculty 
Senate Constitution were accepted by 
the senate but not without controversy. 
The first amendment states that "The 
Chairman and Vice Chairman shall be 
elected by and from the teaching and 
nonteaching certificated faculty for 
two-year staggered terms." Prior to 
that amendment the president of the 
college was always the chairman.

Marines Offer Careers, Financial Aid 

By Brian E. Crowley 
Staff Writer 

Financial assistance and career 
opportunities were just /t^o of the 
incentives that Captain P.X Persian! and 
Staff Sergeant R. R. Redman offered Palm 
Beach Junior College Students last week. 
Standing in front of the SAC lounge, 
Persiani and Redman, members of the 
United States Marine Corps Officer 
Selection Team spoke to approximately 15 
siudents about Platoon Leaders Class 

Persiani told the students that PLC is an 
opponunit.v for young men to complete 
college aiul upon graduation receive a 

commission in the USMC as a second 
Lieutenant. After commissioning there is 
training in Basic Officer School followed by 
an Occupational Specialty Education 
Program in either aviation or grouind 

The PLC program is open to either 
freshmen, sophmores, or juniors who are 
able to meet the Marine Corps 
requirements of physical fitness, and can 
maintain a "C" average throughout 

Freshmen and sophomores are required 
to go to a summer camp for two six-week 
periods. Juniors will be required to go to 
one twelve week session if they did.not join 

as freshmen or sophomores. 

Students that need financial assistance 
may receive SlOO per month for each school 
month. The money is not a loan but for 
each S900 that is received an aditional six 
months active duty is required. 
Additionally for each six weeks of summer 
camp the student receives S612. 

Students who enter this program may 
drop out at any time and according to 
Captain Persiani "If you think you are a 
born leader, we can test you," The Officer 
Selection Team will be back again in March 
to give the men and women of JC another 
chance to talk to them. 


For Senate 

Vie For Office 

By Robin Witt 
Staff Writer 

As of Thursday noon, twenty. three 
students had filed applications for the 
student senate. Last year only nineteen 
applications were receiv&d; not even 
enough to fill the twenty three seats 

Tory Buckley, SG president gave his 
views on last years elections and the 
reasons for this year's success. "Last 
year 1 believe the reason for the poor 
turnout was a whole lot of people didn't 
know about SG and it's functions. Also 
people were fed up with government on 
local and national levels. Because of a 
conserted effort by the executive board of 
SG and an increase in the amount of 
publicity given to the elections the 
number of people becom-ing involved in 
SG has grown." 

Members of the executive board visited 
classes last week and informed students 
about SG. "We talked to teachers who in 
turn talked to their students and got them 
interested. For that alone they deserve a 
big thanks," said Tory Buckley, 

As of the last executive board meeting 
Dr. Harold C. Manor, president of JC, 
still held with his directive about the 
discontinued use of the pillars and 
windows.on which to put announcements. 
However, Dolor Ginchereau, negotiated 
with Dr. Manor and was given permission 
to use the pillars for the senate 
campaigns. Restrictions were placed on 
the placement of posters, no tape is to be 
used, string only and no posters are to be 
put on glass surfaces. 

Candidates are reminded that 
campaigning begins today and ends 
Friday September 20. All posters must 
be taken down on this date. 

Monday, September 23, Tuesday, 
September 24, all day, Wednesday 
September 25 until 3 p.m. are the days 
students can vote. The voting machines 
are to be located by the Business 
Administration Building and outside the 

According to Dolor Ginchereau, senate 
president, "The elections are moving 
rapidly. I would like to see a really good 
race and a lot of students voting.

Interested Student 

A.The Galleon won't make its debut until early December, because 
of the longer span of time (Fail- Winter term) covered by the 
publication, according to Galeon advisor Mr. Odas E. Arant. 

In light of rising pricees Arant feels "the yearbook staff has done 
everything possible in cutting down cost." 

The yearbook and its staff have undergone a few changes, in 
addition to minor problems. This summer, while most students 
fought a monsterous battle with Spring I and II classes, Galleon 
Editor Paul Aho worked alone on the completion of the book. 

The staff has grown from its membership of one, and Arant 
explained, "this year's staff will compile the finest yearbook 
produced at JG in a long time." The 1975 yearbook will cover both 
the fall and winter semesters and should be on the stands by Spring 
II, 1975. 

Most of the paste-up and special effects work is done on $11,000 
worth of equipment, which is to be fully paid for this year. 

Arant says, and I must agree, "the yearbook and staff are one of 
the most fiscally responsible (dollar -saving) groups on campus." In 
this day of the shrinking greenback it is good to know someone cares 
about your student activity dollar. 

This trash-can appears to be the most comfortable place for these

WRAP To Return? 

(Continued from page 1) 

At the SG Executive Board meeting last 
Tuesday, the board shifted $200 ftom WRAP'S 
contingency fiind and transferred the money to 
account No. 710. 

Further complications arose Thursday when it 
was discovered that the company, from which the 
new amp was to come, had burnt down. "If not for 
themixup in accounts, we. would have received the 
amp by the day of the fire," Banks moaned. 

When WRAP finally returns to "nowhere" the 
staff of Manager Dave Drummond will be well 

During the summer, WRAP, a subsidiary of SG, 
gained major consessions when guidelines for the 
station were drawn. 

One long-sought change is that outside records 
may now be brought in for scheduled specials. 
Banks reports that several specials are already 
planned. Last year WRAP could only use records 
bought with SG approval. 

WRAP'S management, under the new 
guidelines, may submit editorials representing the 
station, rather than just individuals, as was the 
case last year. Another change is that the 
management, consisting of the manager and 
assistant manager, has the right to replace and 
remove staff members at their discretion, and not 
the discretion of SG. 

After renegotiating guidelines, and a year's 
budget totaling $1400, WRAP began training 
personnel. Beginning the day of Freshman 
Orientation, two weeks prior to school's start, 
WRAP Program Manager Joan Francis helped an 
estimated 25-30 interested students try the control 
board for the first time.

Health Exam Gives 
Two Hours Credit 

By Robin Kindle 

Two semester hours credit for the required HHlOl health courej 
may be earned in a special health exam to be given Thursday; 
October 3, 2:30 p.m. in room SC 26. \ 

Students must answer 154 out of 200 questions correctly to pas<: 
the test, according to Testing Director Donald Cook, The ter' 
questions are to cover a wide range of areas. 

"This is a very difficult exam," comments Cook, "and only thos-;; 
with a background in health study will have much of a chance t; 
pass it." 

Pemission slips are available at the Testing Center, AD 5, anc; 
should be picked up at least a week before the test is scheduled t;; 
begin. A fee of $22.00 is required. 

In the past, health exams were given for exemption, but thi- 
student did not earn credit. The 1974 health exam is in the samr 
category as the CLEP exams, in that, if passed credit for PIH 10: 
will be given. >

polled 84 students to find out how 4any are registered, and how 
many actually expected to vote: 

60% students registered to vote. 

40% students not reigstered to vote. 

Of those registered to vote, we came up with these findings- 

44% did not vote. 

26% voted Republican 

30% voted Democratic. 

Switching to national politics, we asked 284 students questions 
centering on the recent pardon of Richard Nixon by President Ford. 

Do you agree with President Fords decision to pardon formeJ 
President Nixon? 

Yes 29% 

No 63% 

Undecided 8% 

Do you feel President Ford should extend amnesty or conditiona! 
amnesty to draft dodgers? 

Yes 70% 

No 16% 

Undecided 14% 

Most students questioned on the amnesty and pardon issues were 
very sure of their decision indicating that these are cut-and- dried 
issues in their minds. 

On the question of amnesty, most people preferred conditional 
amnesty to unconditional amnesty. 

One veteran was in opposition to amnesty. "I saw too many je •■ 
men die in Vietnam," he observed. gooc

Sparse gatherings of students and faculty listened as area 
polhicans made final campaign speeches during the recent 
Democratic and Republican days, held September 6 and 9, 
respectively, in the SAC Lounge. 

Sponisored by JC's Political Union, the assemblies, which 
consisted mainly of five-minute "vote-for-me" speeches, drew 18 
Democrats and 11 Republicans, or their representatives. 

Most speeches centered on a theme of the candidate being for the 
people, owing favors to no person or organization. 

Starting with the Democrats, here is a rundown of what each 
candidate stressed in his speech: 


Harry Johnston (State Senate - District 26) was represented by JC 
student Paul Hedrick, who spoke first because he was late for a 
French class: "Johnston has made only two promises in this 
campaign," said Hedrick, "honesty and hard work." 

Michael Small, Johnston's opponent in the District 26 race, was 
represented by his wife, who urged voters to "make your SMALL 
vote count." Mrs. Small admitted that this was her first speech of 
the campaign, but following her presentation, Edwin V. Pugh, 
faculty advisor to the Student Union and master-of-ceremonies, 
remarked, ''you did very well." 

Mallory Home's representative said the senate candidate is the 
only person to be endorsed by every major college student body 
president and every Black college president in the state. Mr. 
Home's speaker concluded, "1 just think he is a real fine man." 

Neil Justin, an FAU professor running for the Senate, has 
appeared at JC twice during the campaign, but was unable to attend 
the Candidate Day. Speaking for Justin, student Robin Plitt 
commented, "Neil's honesty and dedication is well worth your 

Robert McBain, candidate for a seat in the 1974 Delegates 
Conference, held up a bumper-sticker proclaiming "All Streakers 
Are Created Equal." McBaIn urged citizens to join in the fight 
against crime and inflation. 

Don Childers, State Senate-District 28 candidate, challenged one 
of his opponents who wanted some public meetings closed."If I am 
elected," said Childers, "I will never participate in a closed 

Donald Walker, also running for District 28, countered that only 
"salaries and personnel meetings should be closed to the public." 
Many candidates throughout the morning stressed that they had no 
connection with realtors. 

Walker, however, was proud of the fact that he is a realtor. "Not 
all realtors are bad. . .and to say that 1 am one of the realtors that is 
not straight is guilt by association," stressed Walker. 

Gerald Cornelius, candidate for the U.S. House in District 81, 
chastised his opponent, Edward Healy, for not campaigning often 
enough. "If a man is going to represent the people he should at 
least have the courtesy of telling yon what he stands for," said

Edward Healty arrived minutes later to the disbelief of Cornelius. 

Healy said he must continue working during the campaign as he

John Considine, running for the 82nd District House job, was 
represented by his brother, who criticised the Republican 
incumbent for attending few- legislative sessions. 

Donna Cotton, Considine 's opponent, said the current political 
system is leading to "voter confusion." Ms. Cotton received the 
endorsement of the Palm Beach Post and Times, 

Jackie Winchester's son Jon lauded his mother for the job she 
had done as Supervisor of Elections, a post she hopes to keep 
"Through cutting out unnecessary programs, Jackie Wiiichcstor 
returned $100,000 to the citizens of Palm Beach County," said the 
younger Winchester. 

Grace Blitz, County Commission candidate, was forced to come to 
Florida several years ago when her husband had an ailment. She 
started on the grass-roots level but is now running for a major 

Mrs. Blitz compared herself to Columbus. "Did Columbus have 
experience? No! But he had the training," she said. 

Bill Medlen, an opponent of Mrs. Blitz, said he has helped to save 
hundreds of acres of beach land for the public. Medlen stres.sed that 
he would not be controlled by big party bosses, as are other 
commissioners now serving. 


AI Coogler, running for State Senate District 28, wi»mccl, "If we 
don't plan our growth we will lose our livelihood." Coogler, lii 
response to a question from the audience, said he has spent $10,000 
in his campaign, of which 17,500 is his own money. 

Commenting on President Ford's pardon of Richard Nixon, 
Coogler replied, "1 thought the one thing restored by Watergate 
would be that we are a nation of laws and not men." 

Tom Johnson, a former JC student who graduated in 1950, 
opposed Coogler in the primary. Johnson, the incumbent, i.s proud 
of his leading role in the passage of 18-year-oId majority rights bill 
two years ago. 

Susan Weaver, candidate for the 81st House Distrlst, recalled hor 
days as a JC stadent in Pngh's class where she sat In the sixth seat 
in the ftfst row. Returning to polidcs she stated, "It is about time 
we have women in government," Ms. Weaver pledged to spend 
all her time serving the 81st District. 

Dave Clark, Ms. Weaver's opponent, has a son attending JC. 
The incumbant criticised those who put down the younger 
generation. "I believe that young people are interested in thp 
future," said Clark, a father of five. 

William Cruickshank is campaigning for the District 4 seat on the 
County Commission. Retired at 49-year-oId to devote his life to 
politics, Cruickshank said the commission needs "someone who 
understands what your needs and desires are." 

In concluding the program, Pugh, a Social Science Department 
member, pledged that the Student Union would "make every effort 
to have candidates in the November election here on campus this

Computer Chaos 

County Commission Chairman Robert F. Culpepper has taken the 
right step in demanding a complete investigative report on the 
handling of election returns Sept. 10. 

Unofficial election results for 162 of the county's 163 precincts 
were not available until after 1 a.m. Wedneday, Sept. 11, and even 
then, some precincts may have been counted twice. 

"It's not fair to anyone to have those returns coming in so late," 
Culpepper said, "We're going to find out what happened and if 
there's anything the commission can do to prevent this, we'll do it." 

Three men, Tax Assessor David Reid, Tax Collector Warren 
Kramer and Clerk of Courts John Dunkle, are in charge of the 
county's Data Processing department which handled the returns. 
Supervisor of Elections Jackie Winchester, who has also called for 
an investigatioo, said that she "really can't control what they do 
over there." 

This sort of chaos on such an important night should not be 
overlooked by the county commission. Reportedly, one key punch 
error caused the massive slowdown - and it took computer 
programmers three key election hours to locate it. There is no 
excuse for this kind of mishap. 

Explanations and excuses should be scrutinized and reviewed 
careftilly, and a proper course of action should be taken to prevent 
the reoccurence of such a foul-up. 

Air Fare Soaring 

"H God had wanted man to fly, he would have given him wings," 
or money enough to purchase an airline ticket. Air travel prices are 
soaring and, with youth fares now defunct, students are paying 
more money for less travel opportunities. 

Letters to your Congressmen could bring air fares back down to 
earth. The National Student Lobby, a federation of individual 
students and student governments head-quartered in Washington 
D.C., is pushing for the passage of two bills by Congress. These 
bills, which appear to have excellent chances of passage before 
Congress adjourns for the November elections, will insure a 
national air transportation policy that will benefit students. 

One of these bills, S.2651, would overturn a decision made two 
years ago by the Civil Aeronautics Board prohibiting the scheduled 
airlines from offering the so-called "youth fares." This bill would 
also allow the student with a flexible time schedule to travel standby 
at a reduced price, and could save students as a whole an amount 
apporaching 100 million dollars annually. 

Passage of the second bill, S.1739, would provide the student a 
greatly expanded opportunity to travel by group charter, and save in 
many cases more than half of what would be the current costs of 
their travel. 

The first step to reasonable air fares is a letter to Washington. 
Write Representative Paul Rogers (C/0 House of Representatives, 
Washington D.C. 20515) expressing your support for the passage of 
S.265i, and to Senator Lawton Chiles (C/0 U.S. Senate, 
Washington, D.C. 20510) stating complete support for S.1739. 

Nude Bathing 
Is Exposed 

Nobody makes anyone take their clothes off at a public beach - 
why should a person have to keep his clothes ON at a private beach? 
That's the question Air Force Beach's nude sunbathers were asking 
last weekend. 

Their inquiry fell on some shocked and some sympathetic ears. 
But, as one nude bather said, "Nobody's hurting anybody here." 
And it's true. The sunbathers can only be seen through binoculars. 

There has literally been too much ado about nothing (nothing in 

the way of bathing attire, that is) lately. Air Force Beach's bare 

•eachgoers aren't bothering anyone and their biggest problem 

ouldn't be indecent exposure charges but sunburn.

Students Not At Fault 

By Brian Crowley 
Staff Writer 

Students can no longer accept 
being penalized for the 
irresponsibility of some of the 
instructors on this campus. The 
current attendance policy holds 
students responsible for being 
late for class. This cannot 
continue because there are 
instructors who repeatedly 
cause students to be late for 
class. Therefore the policy, with 
regard to tardiness, must be 

The present policy allows that 
students will be considered one 
day absent for every three days 
tardy. Absence from 25V2 
(usually 12) of the total class 
sessions can result in a grade of 

"F". A student could miss 
eleven class sessions followed 
by three tardies, one being 
caused by a long winded 
instructor, and be failed. 
Although such a scenario is 
unlikely, what often does 
happen is that the instructor 
repeatedly holds his class 
overtime, which in turn 
repeatedly causes the student to 
be late. This does not help the 
student maintain a good 
Impression. Only a fool would 
deny that impressions do count 
at grade time. 

There is an instructor in the 
Social Science department who 
frequently holds his classes well 
beyond the class period. As 
recently as two weeks ago, this 
writer witnessed that instructc 

hold his class in session during 
the entire ten minute break 
period. Again last week this 
writer saw him do the same 
thing. Unfortunately, although 
most instructors are not that 
extreme, many do hold their 
classes well beyond the 
allotted time. 

The student government and 
Faculty Senate should immed- 
iately take steps to investigate 
the abuses, take action against 
the violators and remove the 
penalty against the students 
from the rules. , 

The student cannot be held 
responsible for being in class on 
time if some of the instructors 
on the campus refuse to accept 
their responsibility to proniptly 
dismiss their classes.

~3/ Percent — 

Patient Choice 

~~ J.Miciiele Nofter— 

St. Mary's, Bethesda, and Everglades Memorial Hospitals 
recently settled a contract dispute by striking a clause that would 
have barred male nurses from maternity and obstetrics floors. The 
clause discriminated against male nurses. 

Currently, female nurses take care of male patients during varied 
medical treatments and procedures. I see no reason why this should 
not hold ttue for male nurses and female patients. It is encouraging 
to hear that males are requesting such assignments. 1 believe that 
male nurses can be just as sympathetic as female nurses, and of 
course, just as capable. 

The only possible explanation for the mandatory presence of 
female nurses is the fear of molestation of the female patients by the 
male doctor. This is a ridiculous assertion; it assumes that the 
female patient is helpless and the male doctor a lecher. This is not 
conductive to a trusting doctor-patient relationship. 

However, I am in favor of a female presence, particularly in the 
case of childbirth, whether she be the doctor or the nurse. The 
woman must be one who has experienced childbirth. No amount of' 
education or medical textbook terminology can explain how it feels to 
experience childbirth. 

A medical woman is in a much better position to understand the 
patient. She knows what is normal during childbirth and can base 
her reactions on the patient's condition by verbal communication. 

The barring of male nurses from the maternity and obstetrics 
floors is a regression to medevial times when birth was solely a 
woman's concern. Eventually, I hope that there are more female 
doctors and a fairer distribution of the sexes throughout the medical 

Finally, it is advisable to let the patient decide who she wants to 
nurse her. She selects a doctor; she should also be ablt to state a 
preference for a female or male nurse.

Last Exit 

Peace With Dishonor 

More Bressler 

The combined forces of the 
United States Congress and the 
U.S. Press achieved "peace 
with dishonor" the day former 
President Richard M. Nixon 

Led by such gallant generals 
and military strategists as Dan 
Rather, Lowell Wicker, and Sam 
Ervin, the 672 day long struggle 
came to an end when Nixon 
withdrew his forces from 
Washington forever. 

The Nixon Army, at one time 
believed to be equal to the total 
population of the U.S. minus 
that of Massachusetts, was 
brought to its knees by the 
revolutionary "Media Militia". 
Citing the need for immediate 
"Americanization", General - 
Harry Reasoner said such a 
program would allow Americans 
to turn their attention to such 
minor matters as inflation, 
poverty, and crime in the 

Pat Brown, former governor 

— fMke's View- 

of California and the only living 
person to have defeated Nixon 
in an election, said, "I thought I 
got rid of him in '62." 

Many citizens, sympathetic to 
the former president, said his 
exile to the barren wastelands of 
San Clemente and Key Biscayne 
was too harsh. "Suppose he 
gets thirsty?" asked one citizen. 
"Can you drink the Pacific 
Ocean? Can you drink the 
Atlantic Ocean? No! I think he 
has suffered enough." 

President Ford, who appar- 
ently wants to punish the former 
chief executive as much as 
possible, has burdened the 
Nixon family with an additional 
$850,000 in taxpayer's money. 
"Just think of the time he's in 
for trying to budget all that 
dough for just one year," 
laughed a presidential aide with 
tears in his eyes. 

Kay Graham, leader of the 
Washington Post Liberation 
Army, the team largely 

responsible for Nixon's down- 
fall, said, "It's quite sad. Now 
we von't have Richard Nixon to 
kick around anymore." 

Julie Nixon Eisenhower has 
resigned from her $15,000 a 
year editorship on the Saturday 
Evening Post. She will be 
replaced by President Ford's 
daughter, but the publishers 
have stated the replacement had 
nothing to do with political 
motives. "President Ford's 
young daughter was chosen 
due to her experience and talent 
in the magazine field", a 
spokesman said. However, he 
could not remember her first 

The transition of power from 
Nixon to Ford has gone 
smoothly; Ford is currently 
enjoying a "honeymoon" with 
Congress. Ford also admitted 
seeing Nixon the other day. 

"Yeah, I bumped into him," 
Ford said, "and he said, 'oh, 
pardon me'". 

Custonrier: Extinct Species 

Mike Piliero- 

THAT'S THE WAY TO CAMPAIGN! This yomig JC student sup- 
ports Mailom Home and shows it by wearing a "campaign poster 
blouse". The young lady's help was in vam - Home lost in his race 
for the U.S. Senate. 

Yes, at long last, that elusive link to history's 
"Reign of the Consumer" has been found. 

Our "link" takes the form of a wooden plaque 
containing definative script that details the 
disposition of the term "CUSTOMER" by, it is 
assumed, Americans of the far past. 

The explosive discovery was made by this writer 
while seeking a "means of living" at Manero's 
Restaurant on Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., in West 
Palm Beach. It was attached to the kitchen wall 
just above the employees' time clock and when I 
inquired further, the owner, young John Mahoney, 
explained he found it in an old silversmith's shop 
in Concord, Massachusetts, "h makes all the 
sense in the world to me. I use it as a guide for 
everyone who works here including myself." 

To determine the origin of the relic "link", a 
PBJC etyomologist will have to search way back to 
a time when the term "Customer" was used as the 
"link" describes: 


A Customer - is the most important person in 
any business. 

A Customer - is not dependent on us • we are on 

A customer - is not an interruption of our work, 
he is the purpose of it. 

A Customer - does us a favor when he calls - we 
are not doing him a favor by serving him. 

A Customer • is part of our business - not an 

A Customer - is not a cold statistic - he is a flesh 
and blood human being with feelings and emotions 
like our own. 

A Customer - is not someone to argue or match 
wits with. 

A Customer - is a. person who brings us his 
wants - it is our job to fill those wants. 

A Customer - is deserving of the most courteous 
and attentive treatment we can give him. 

A Customer - is the life blood of this and every 
other business. 


Can you imagine that, a customer is not an 
interruption of work?? Boy, I know of some 
businesses whose employees would suffer a form 
of traumatism if they had to work by these rules. 

Do you know that if presidents, politicians and 
people from all walks of life would abide by these 
mores (not only in respect to customers, but all 
people) the world's media might be an everlasting 
joy to experience. And the world could live 
peacefully forever and ever and ever.

A concert sponsored by 
Carver Middle School is 
scheduled for October 6, at the 
Delray Beach Civic Center. 
Performing will be the Jazz 
Ensemble and the JC concert 
band in order to raise money to 
purchase instruments for the 
school that were stolen in 
previous years. 
AH styles of music including 

Dixie Land, creative rock, jazz 
and music of the big band era 
are performed. 

"There is no sound like the 
sound of this group, it's a full 
sound, an exciting sound!" 
proclaimed Mr. Pryweller. 

The Ensemble unlike the 
concert band and other musical 
organizations, is selective. 
Students who perform with the 
jazz ensemble must not only 
have the ability to read music 
but to interpret it. . - 

There is an excellent 
opportunity open to ensemble 
members to write and arrange 
their own works and hear them 

performed by the ensemble. 

Students interested in joining 
the Jazz Ensemble can see Mr. 
Pryweller in the humanities 
building to set up an audition.

FAU Accepts 
Credit Cards 

By Jan Tuckwood 

Bditaial Assistant 
Cash or charge? Florida 
Atlantic University's students 
will have that choice when they 
register for fall classes. FAlf 
has arranged for Bank Ameri- 
cards to be accepted for the next 
quarter's tuition -and- fees. 

FAU and the First Bank and 
Trust Co. of Boca Raton have 
entered into an agreement to 
charge student costs to the 
individual's Bank Americard. 

Authorization for use of credit 
cards for payment of University 
fees was enacted by the 1974 
Legislature with the stipulation 
no discount or service charge 
could be paid by the 
universities. First Bank, the 
BankAmericard agent in Palm 
Beach County, will assume the 
cost of the.program, waiving the 
normal fee it charges its 
BankAmercard accounts. 

The legislation prohibits the 
use of charge cards for any 
services which are available 
from private businesses, so 
neither food, books or purchases 
or rentals of residence hallspace 
may be charged. 

Arrangements for credit must 
be made by the student with the 
BankAmericard agency in his 
home area prior to his 
enrollment. Attempts to make 
contractual arrangements with 
Master Charge and American 
Express were unsuccessful.

Students On Display 

By Lynn Kalber 
Feature Editor 

A unique boutique, "The Full House", is opening it's doors both 
commercial and otherwise, to the creative students of JC. 

Owned and operated by Fred and Ruthie Bazinet, the shop has 
offered to display creations by local students. 

"The Full House" main feature are the crocheted bikinis {as seen 
in the accompanymg photos), caftans, and "strings" made by 
Ruthie, which have made the boutique famous. A new attraction is 
the "one of a kind" artwork of the Bazinets, a "custom accent" 
found on pants, shirts, and jackets. 

Sequins, rhinestones, studs, and patches are sewn on in original 
designs by Fred (a former JC student) and Ruthie, and specially 
formulated paints are used for the creation of unique pictures. 
"Individuality is the by-word. . ." states Bazinet. 

The boutique also offers silver jewelry imported fi-om Mexico, and 
other distinctive jewelry designs. 

"The Full House" has been the subject of wide press coverage 
firom Miami to New York and the Bazinets also appeared on the T.V. 
show "What My Line?" 

With one of the best advertised boutiques in the nation close to 
campus, the craftsmen of JC now have an opportunity not afforded 
them in the past.

Go-FFee , Tea, .. 

Lunch, Music 

By Timothy L. Bray 
Entertainment Editor 

' 'The answer is blowing in the 
wind." This line is symbolic of 
the many lyrics evolving 
through folk music. 

Carrying the tradition, JC 
Student Government and the 
Music Department are co-spon- 
soring a Coffee House which 
will be in the Cafeteria today 
through the noon hour. 

The JC Cafeteria will be filled 
with music from 11 a.m. to 1 
p.m. It is being coordinated by 
Robin Plitt, and Mr. Silvio 
Estrada serving as the musical 

Today's Coffee House will 
feature artists with many 
original compositions, according 
to Plitt. Greg O'Dell, "who's 
guitar style resembles that of 
David Mason," has two original 
compositions. Frank Smith will 
also be performing with his 
"interesting and unique style". 

"This music will not be the 
purest folk. The music will 
range from classical to moderate 
rock," said Plitt. 

Teaming up for a couple of 
duets will be Randy Presley and 

Linda Cooper. Robin Plitt will 
also be performing. 

Also headlining the cast is 
classical guitarist Joseph Thr- 

Plitt explained musicians 
such as John Denver, Joni 
Mitchell and others have helped 
bring folk music back in focus. 

"Folk music never went out of 
existence because, frankly, folk 
music is the music of the people. 
Its music about life. 

"If there wasn't a reoccurring 
interest in folk music around the 
country, then we would not be 
having this Coffee House." 

The works of the artists 
involved are good original music 
scores, stated Plitt. They will 
also perform songs that have 
made it in the Top 40 "folk 

Plitt told the BEACH- 
COMBER earlier, this Coffee 
House is something which has 
not been tried here at JC. It is 
the hope of the Music 
Department and SG that the 
students will provide an 
incentive to further activities on

After 10 years of practice, Sy PryweEer, Concert Band Director, 
either has the band well under control or a tremendous amount of 

There are 40 members this semester, although the number is 
known to fluctuate from 25 to 60 members at a time. 

No auditioning's required to join the band, but a beginner need 
not apply. The band, according to Mr. Pryweller, consists of people 
who have played before and can read music. 

Playing a variety of music the bands accomplishments vary from 
symphonic music to Broadway hits. 

According to Pryweller, fitting the positions with the right 
number and type of instruments with the music is the biggest 

"There is always a need for woodwind instruments," said Mr. 
Pryweller, "and this semester we need more trombones." 

Not all members in the Concert Band are music majors. 
Psychology, Interior Design, Architecture, and Education, are also 

"Everyone counts," said Pryweller "Everyone is important 
toward the total sound." 

Activities this semester include the Scholarship Concert at JC on 
November 1 7andconcerts at Qsntaty Village October 5, the Delray 
Beach Civic Center October 6, and the Christmas Concert again at 
JC on December 12.

Television Influence Society 

Glenn Powell 

In past decades the media, whatever it might 
consist of, has had more than a little influence on 
the lives of everyone it reaches. 

The radio for example, broaght news to more 
people faster than anything ahead of its time. And 
yet, the radio stilt had much the same effect on a 
person's insight as the printed page only with a 
more realistic and familiar flair. 

Then came the glorious advent of television. 
Now, not only could the average Joe hear the news 
as it was happening, he could see it too! This 
tremendous impact of realism has brought about 
much change on the effect of the media on the 
public and consequently much controversy in 
recent years over what should be allowed on TV 
programming. Because of its overall realism, 
television is a highly believable medium. 

This leads us to the "true life" drama. The plots 
and stories of these dramas, are, of course, 
fictitious and yet, because you can see what's 
happening while it is happening it can all seem 
very real. 

We are bombarded with such a barrage of "true 
life" dramas that it has become liard totell whether 
those movies are part of the news or the news is 
just another movie. 

One particular illustration of this type of news 
parody is a recent episode of the popular police 
drama, "Hawaii Five-O". In this episode a gang 
of misled teenagers (of course teenagers, who 
else?) guided by a maniacal revolutionary are 
ordered to murder key political characters in the 
name of the New Revolution. They give out news 
releases concerning their murders and go to great 
lengths to explain their motives to the press. 

Donning the title "Terrorist Revolutionary 
Government", they kidnap one of the show's stars 
and demand release of two of their companions 

caught and charged with murder in return for the 
police detective. Vi'ell, after communication via 
CB radio and much diligence on the part of the 
Great American Machine, the criminals are finally 
caught and put in their right place. 

This show (like many shows of this type) was 
overtly peppered with insinuations and innuendos 
relating to true facts to make it more realistic. To 
illustrate, at one point in the show when the 
murders become rampant and the terrorists make 
public promise of more to come, the police 
commissioner states, "I've dreaded this ever since 
the Germans released the Palestinian comman- 
dos". What could be more incriminating? 

These innuendos imply that all terrorist groups 
are inspired by Napolean types inflamed with a 
preoccupation to either destroy the American 
government or, in more fantastic arrangements, 
take the entire world! 

The implications involved in this show are 
obvious. It was not that long ago that tlic 
Symbionese Liberation Army was publicly 
declaring guilt of the now hushed up Patty Hearst 
case and had substantial political motives for doing 

I am not saying that this show is a direct link to 
this or any other news fact, h is not. U is fiction. 
These shows do, however, draw on a fact and the 
tendency of the American Public to be influenced 
by what can be seen and heard, especially on 
television. It can make people believe that tlie 
reasons or motives for fictional criminal acts could 
also be the same motives for real criminal acts. 

This is the power of television. Now, next time 
you prop you your tootsies for a few views at the 
tube, consider this. . .is it real because it's 
happening or is it happening because it's real? 

Suspicion, Doubfs, Suspense 

By John Auchterlonie 
Staff Writer 

Take all of the suspicions, 
doubts and "ifs" of conspiracy 
used in the tragic assasinations 
of political figures of the sixties, 
devise a terrifying tale about a 
secret underground organiza- 
tion that recruits assasins for 
that purpose and bring in a hero 
to track down the clues - and one 
has "The Parallax View". 

The hero is Warren Beatty, 
who is remembered from 
"Bonny and Clyde". He plays a 
long hair journahst who has had 
his ups and downs in his 
profession. So> now he does not 
really care about the next guy 
but had a deep journalistic love 
to get the scoop and expose the 
dishonest. No, he merely 
stumbles on a few clues" and 
before he knows it he's hot on a 
trail of suspense and action 
that's too big for him to handle. 

Add some great scene shots 
and good coordination of these 

scenes, some tight directing by 
Alan J. Pakula, and the results 

are an easily followed suspense 

Acting support comes from 

HumeCronyn, William Danials. 
and Paula Prentiss. 

The "Parallax View" must be 
a trend flick following "The 
Sting". Although the time 
periods and the story are 
different, they both are 
suspense movies. "China- 
town" by being in the saine 
time period, went even fuitheir 
with just a little different style. 

All three are suspense movies 
with surprise endings. "Th 
Sting" by far is the best of the 
three while the remaining two 
are of the same caliber and 
significant to see, but th 
"Parallax View" is the mor^ 
entertaining. ^ 

So suspense movie buffs "liv 
it up" and pray they don't mak^ 
them worse and for us noi-mai 
people who like to just get into « 
film every now and then th 
"Parallax View" can do it f^

Pisces: Tact is a valuable quality at this time. 

While your opinions are valid, don't go waving

They recently released their 
seventh album, "Starless and

"Fracture", the final track on

Disney Londs Girls 

By Debbie Savarese Thompson 
Staff Writer 

Debra Sperlich and Denise O'Neill, both former JC students, 
were among a select group of college students chosen from 
throughout the U.S. to participate is Disney's innovative Fine Arts 
Work Experience Program this summer. 

Debra, a May honor graduate and the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
William Sperlich of North Palm Beach, combined an unusual 
summer job with excellent training in professional entertainment at 
Disney World m Orlando. Denise, a music and drama major, 
participated in the Disneyland program in California. 

Competition for acceptance in the exclusive group is stiff, and 
both Debbie and Denise were chosen from the more than 250 
students from 48 states who submitted video tape auditions to the 
management. The talented young singer-dancers, as members of 
the Park's 20 member "Kids of the Kingdom" musical ensemble, 
perform in the forecourt of Ciftderella's castle four nights a week. 
In addition they march in the 9:00 parade every night. 

From the Tomorrowland Stage, the "Kids", featuring six male 
and six female singers backed by eight musicians, offer guests a 
variety of favorites in a spirited program which has captured the 
hearts of millions of visitors. 

Combined with the 12-week, paid adventure in professional 
entertainment experience, the girls attended lectures and morning 
classes taught by top professional musicians. They also earned 10 
college credits fo taking the program, which ended September 7. 

"Not only does the training provide fresh young talent to 
entertain visitors, but it's a terrific experience for the students 
participating," explained Debra, who plans to attend Florida 
Atlantic University this fall. 

Whether gaining knowledge in a class room or refining their skills 
on the stage, Denise, Debra and other members of Disney's Fine 
Arts summer workshop for '74 have enjoyed a learning experience 
they won't soon forget.

One runner was stopped by 
a policeman while running an 
early morning workout. 

Being the quick-witted soul 
he was, the runner asked "How 
fast was I going?" 

The warden of a Michigan 
prison ran ten miles around the 
walls of his institution every

story of the marathoner who

"I am very' pleased with the 
showing of our team," said 
head coach, Dick Melear. "All 
the boys ran very well today." 

Melear feels that this race 
was an indication of the strength 
of his team. 

"We looked very good 
against Indian River and they 
ran with the same seveii boys 
who placed third in the state 
meet last year," he said. 

Flag-Tag Football 
Practice Begins 

Practice begins today for all 
teams entered in the flag tag 
football league sponsored by the 
intramural department, accord- 
ing to Roy Bell director of the 
recreation program. 

Teams will practice on 
weekdays beginning at 2:00 
p.m. on the football field located 
in the south end of campus. 

"Flag tag football is a 
recreational sport designed to 
give the pleasure, of throwing, 
kicking, and running with a 
football without the fear of 
being tackled," said Bell. 

The flag tag league is still 
taking applications for teams 
who wish to compete. 

Also, individuals who wish to 
take part in the football league 

may either be drafted by one of 
the existing teams or join 
together in a group and form a 
new team. 

The season will last as long as 
there is a demand from the 
students with games being 
played on Monday afternoons^ 

Games which are rained out 
on Mondays, will be played on 
Wednesday afternoons. 

Anyone interested in compet- 
ing in the league is asked to 
leave an application in the 
intramural office which is 
located on the west wall of the

Foreign Student Teaches Korote

PBJC students are being 
offered the chance to gain self 
confidence, poise, peace of 
mind, and the ability to protect 
themselves from attack in the 
new karate classes which are 
being sponsored by the 
intramurals department. 

The classes meet three times 
weekly at 1:30 p.m. in the gym. 
Students will spend an hour 
and a half on Monday, 
Wednesday, and Friday, learn- 
ing the basic techniques of 
karate as taught by Pansak 
"Paul" Ratanaprasith. 

Paul, a native Thai, came 
to PBJC after a brief period of 
time at the University of 
Bancock, where he studies 

After a falling out with the 
school, Paul decided to transfer 
to the United States, where he 
became interested in the field of 
electrical engineering. 

"My foster father was an 
electrical engineer, and 1 
became interested in the field," 
Paul explained. 

Paul lives in Jupher with his 
"foster father", William Wor- 
den, who owns the Ocean 
Towers condominiums in that 

Paul is a certified, third 
degree black belt holder with 10 
years worth of experience to his 

"There are 10 degrees of 
black belt," Paul explained. 
"With each step you improve, 
you gain another degree of 
whichever belt you are working 

According to Paul, there are 
several different belts which one 
may earn depending on the 
proficiency with which fundi- 
mentals of the sport can be 

Paul also explained that there 
are several different forms of 
the martial arts. The difference 
in the forms lies in the enphasis 
of a certain technique. 

' 'Ti boxing is very similar to 
Korean Karate except that in Ti 
Boxing, the emphasis is placed 
more on the use of the feet," 
Paul explained. 

"During the classes, we will 
be doing exercises to limber, 
strenghten and condition the 
body," Paul said. 

"Following the exercises, 
tire dass will spend about a half 
hour in yoga meditation. 

"We don't want to walk out 
onto the street feeling excited 
and mean, so we spend some 
time meditating," Paul expla-

"I have been able to see 
myself more clearly through 
meditation," Paul said. 

"I can see myself as I am now 

and as I have been." 

Paul began learning the 
martial arts as a child in his 
native Tiland and has been 
teaching for several years. 

The Orientals hold self 
defense arts as a part of their 
culture and are indoctrinated 
into its uses and purposes as 

they mature, according to Paul. 

According to Roy Bell, 
director of intramurals, this is 
the second year his department 
has presented a free karate class 
to the students. 

"Last year we started a class 
with instructors from the Palm 
Beach Karate Association," 

Badmintoners Hold Meeting 

The PBJC badminton club has 
begun holding their weekly 
meetings Wednesday Sept. 11, 
with a 7:00 meeting in the gym. 

The club directors, Hamid 
Faquire and Roy Bell, gave an 
open invitation to all community 
members who may have been 
interested in the sport or curious 
about it. 

"Badminton is one of the 
fastest games you will ever 
play," said Bell. "It is a very 
good sport for conditioning arid 
developing the body." 

The meeting was attended by 
29 individuals who listened to 
introductory, and explanatory 
remarks from Bell and Faquire 

before getting into some actual 

Badminton is a similar sport 
to tennis with several except- 

Among these are the scoring 
system and the cork which is hit 
by a racquet. 

Bell, who is the director of the 
Intramural program, briefly 
outlined the structure and 
functions of the club. 

"Because their is no women's 
varsity badminton team this 
year, the intramurals depart- 
ment will provide transportation 
to meets with other clubs in the 
state." said Bell. 

"Eventually we would like to 

take a ladder tournament so we 
can see how our players are 
doing against each other," said 

"We have excellent facilities 
here," said Faquire. "If we can 
develop enough interest, we will 
definitely play in some 

Bell also said that the 
intramurals department would 
be giving out awards for several 
categories in the club. Among 
these would be awards for most 
improved male and female, 
most outstanding male and 
female, and awards for those 
members of the club with 
regular attendance. 

Bell said. "This class was very 
popular, so we thought we 
would do it again this year." 

Bell said that he wanted to 
see if there was anyone capable 
of teaching the self defense 
class who was on campus. 

"We put out a call to see if we 
could find an instructor for our 
Karate class who was already on 
campus," Bell said. "That's 
how we found out about Paul." 
Bell added that the students 
should put the class in its proper 

"We don't want students to 
come out for this class who want 
to use it to intimidate their 

friends and enemies. Self 
defense is a defensive art and 
not an agressive one." 

Students who wish to take the 
course need not worry about 
purchasing a gi. The traditional 
uniform for the class will not be 
needed until after the first 
month of classes, according to 

"This is an excellent way for 
the students to take advantage 
of their student activity fee," 
said Bell. "The student pays 15 
dollars for the school to provide 
him with an activity and this 
class is one way of getting some 
of their money back. ' ' 

Volleyball Club To Compete 

The PBJC Jogging Course

opportunity for physical 

The Varsity women's volley- 
ball team will not compete this 
year, due to a lack of interest 
and a heavy class load for the 
coach, according to Dr. Howard 
Reynolds, athletic director. 

"I went to the conference 
meeting last June and polled all 
of the coaches to see if they 
were going to have volleyball," 
said Reynolds. 

"I found that none of the 
teams were going to compete on 
a varsity level. However, 
several of the coaches said that 
there would probably be 
competition on a club level in 
the area, said Reynolds.

Chairmanship Change 

Senators Take Sides 

Staff Writer 

Faculty Senate needs a new 
chairman, but despite the 
efforts of some senators, the 
changeover will probably not be 

The problem is a result of an 
amendment to the Senate 
Constitution which states that 
"The Chairman and Vice 
Chairman shall be elected by 
and from the teaching and 
nonteaching certificated faculty 
for two year staggered terms." 

Dr. Manor announced at the 
last Senate meeting his 
intention to step down from the 
chair. During debate, some 
Senators were claiming that the 
vice chairman should automat- 
ically succeed to the chair. 

Others are calling for new 
elections, but whether or not 
this election would be for both 
the chairman and the vice 
chairman or just for one office is 
not clear. 

Part of the reason for the 
present situation is the failure of 
the Senate to have included in 
the wording of the amendment a 

method of implementation. 
Relying on Robert's Rule of 

Order, has been inadequate 
because every faction is able to 

find a section of Robert's to 
support a particular argument. 
A few members of the senate 
state they believe this Thurs- 
day's meeting of the Faculty 
Senate will be the beginning of 
an orderly transition of the

In It For The Money 

There is an unwritten law concerning campaigning for public 
office; have plenty of funds or you'll never win an election. 

Ideally, a candidate's credentials should come first; the voter 
should compare all the candidates and vote for the one he feels is 
most qualified. Realistically, however, the vast majority of yoters 
do not know each candidate's platform. Many times the voter pulls 
the lever for the candidate he's heard of - the name that rings a bell. 

Bumper stickers, billboards, brochures, television and radio 
announcements, are the tools necessary to make that bell ring in the 
minds of voters. It cost thousands upon thousands of dollars. The 
astronomical sum is almost always out of reach for the middle-class 
American seeking public office. 

Does a candidate's election depend on his cash or his credentials? 
It's too bad that many times a man or woman may desire a public 
office and be qualified, honest and sincere but lack the one element 
needed to get elected: money. 


Giving a man a second chance: the whole purpose of offender 
rehabilitation. The Florida Board of Regents practically threw that 
purpose out the window when they voted to ban felons from 
attending law school. 

The question of felons in law schools arose after David Morrison 
was admitted to the Florida State University law school even though 
he was sentenced in 1970 to 24 years in prison following convictions 
for armed robbery and attempted robbery. 

Morrison scored high on his law school admissions test. He also 
recorded honors in college grades in a special program sponsored 
by a Tampa correction center where he expects to be paroled soon. 

Education is an unalienable right, vital in giving convicted men 
another chance. In denying felons that education, the Regents are 
making the word "rehabilitation" meaningless. 

Examine Priorities 

The Associated Press recently reported a little story that should 
be of interest to Florida teachers. 

It seems a teacher in Virginia got tired of hearing people say that 
educators are nothing but overpaid babysitters. She sat down and 
made some interesting calculations. 

A child is in school about 35 hours a week for 40 weeks out of the 
year. That makes a total of 1,400 hours per year. Using a 
babysitter's lowest rate of 50 cents per hour, that comes to S700 per 
year for one child. 

But if a teacher has a small class of 25 children, and at the rate of 
S700 per child, the teacher would make $17,500 per year if paid in 
babysitter's wages. 

The Virginia teacher said she would settle for those wages as she 
is only drawing' $8,400 as a second year teacher. 

Most Florida teachers would agree to that amount. 

Last year, the average teacher salary in Florida was 510,000. It 
seems a shame that people who are so instrumental in the formation 
of our society should be deemed unworthy of better pay. 
while they should be rewarded with possibly the highest salaries, 
those salaries go instead to pro football players, and, on a lower 
scale, the unskilled laborers. 

Priorities are not in their proper place, that is for sure.

beware of kooky karate kids who 
intend to instruct others in this 
honorable act. 

Watch out for two things. 
First, much of what is termed 
"karate" is simply an informal 
course in self-defense. It has a 
little acrobatics, holds, and such 
thrown in. Remember karate, 
all styles, consists of kicks, 
punches, blocks and strikes. 
Ask your instructor what type of 
karate you are learning and 
check that name. 

Next, don't believe you can 
become the second Bruce Lee in 

a matter of months. Formal, 
orthodox karate, takes at least a 
year to obtain a yellow belt.

'51 Percent' 

Woman's Work 

•J. Michele Notter- 

During the summer I lived in Melbourne Beach with my pareats. 
I needed to find a job, so I would check the papers daily. There 
weren't many jobs available so when 1 came across an ad for a 
barmaid, I decided to apply. 

Before, when I thought of bar work, my derriere would start 
aching in anticipation of the pinching 1 would receive. My head 
would spin at the thought of the propositions I would get. 

Of course, this was going under the assumption that I was 
attractive enough to receive such attention; I'm not known for 
modesty, obviously. 

1 decided to give the place a try. I called and made an 
appointment and left early to try it out. 

As I drove slowly past it, I noticed two synthetic marble nude 
female statues outside. I thought, "What the hell, they are. either 
there to attract attention or the owner is a rather poor (as opposed to 
rich) art connoisseur." 

My hopes undimmed and my feminist feathers unruffled, I 
entered the nightclub. 

Completely dark inside, it took my eyes a few minutes to adjust. 
"When what to my wondering eyes did appear. . ." was at least 100 
pairs of breasts (and the accompanying female form) winking at me 
from canvases placed throughout the club. 

I decided to be charitable - maybe the owner was a frustrated 
gynecologist, but no. . .1 soon noticed a rather interesting collection 
of copulating statues also placed throughout the bar. 

The effect of the decor was unimaginative and definitely asexual. 
The women's bodies on the paintings were beautiful, but a little 
exaggerated. The mood of the paintings was spoiled by the Betty 
Boop faces on the women. 

My mind dwelled on the statues; my muscles ached and my bones 
cracked at the thought of assuming such positions. 

However, more important, was the complete irony that I Was 
there, the so-called radical libber, to apply for a job. I wondered 
how the owner would react if he saw the feminist symbol on my car. 
The effect was so farcical that I was tempted to burn my 
non-existant bra to compete with his joke on womanhood and sex. 

1 wasn't angry or offended -just quivering inside with repressed 
laughter. I decided to play the joke through. I filled out an 
application while conversing with the owner. 

I explained that I needed money for college to become an 
accountant. He thought my goal admirable; he had wanted his son 
to enter the same field. 

I didn't blink when he told me I'd have to wear black on the job, 
deeply cut at the neckline and hemmed at the ;top of my thighs. (I 
did wonder if he expected me to get silicone injections though.) 

The owner informed mp that he would make his decision on tlje 
following day as to who he would hire. 

I left, expecting a pat on my derriere ■ he had been so fatherly! 

The next day I received a call from the owner asking me to start 
that evening. 1 declined: the pay was just $6 an evening (from 6:30 
p.m. to 3:00 a.m.) plus tips. The honor of working in thf^t 
establishment was not eriough to make up for the pay. 

Moral: Be kind (and generous) to a barmaid tonight, she may 
have no other choice.

Mike's View 

Musically Speaking At JC 


Last year it was my immense pleasure to attend' 
the classes of professors Hugh D. Albee and Silvio 
Estrada, two highly qualified instructors from our" 
music department. 

To dedicated teachers who are hardly spoken of, 
I would like to devote today's space as pittance for 
the profound example set by these instructors. 

Albee effectively transmits his knowledge of 
music theory and appreciation with a special zeal 
arid humor. 

Invariably the nattily dressed professor would be 
seen hustling up the staircase toward his evening 
class and when reaching and unlocking the 
classroom door, strongly intone his favorite words 
"Mama Mia" (A classmate estimates this to be a 
direct result of an overindulgence in spicy foods.) 
The expression signaled all over the humanities 
building the start of Mr. Albee's class. 

Inside the classroom the work began - but not 
before a warm hello, how are you, to every 

I observed with admiration, the warm manner 
and arduous effort used by Albee to "reach" each 
and every student - those that were anxious to 

learn and those that needed prodding or 
encouragement to want to learn. 

I only wish that he would inject some "Albee 
humor" in his exams. 

Silvio Estrada stands out equally as well for his 
ceaseless efforts in teaching music fundartventais 
and guitar. He impresses me by always having at 
least two or three ways to solve each musical 

Having conducted orchestras all over the world, 
composed music for movies, and experimented in' 
modern forms of music education, Estrada has a 
lot to draw from. He, like Albee, wants every 
student to thoroughly understand what is taught. 

Besides his dedication to teaching music, ■ 
Estrada finds the time to be instrumental in . 
various aid to disadvantaged and migrant workers. ' 

He is a well-rounded person, I also like his ties. 
He won't sell them and they don't make them that 
way anymore. 

"To Albee and Estrada; please continue - your 
message rings loud and clear, and will reverberate 
ever gently on the minds of your students for years 
to come. 

Lost Exit 

Just What Are We Supposed To Think? 

— ■- — Marc Bressler 

h was long after midnight 
when 1 climbed into the front 
seat of the Cadillac limousine in 
the ambulance squad building. 
Even sitting in the dimly lit 
garage, the fiery red paint of the 
sleek rescue vehicle seemed to 
be ablaze when I looked at it, as 
if h spoke of the tragedy and 
suffering it has witnessed. 

The car was no novice in 
handling emergencies, and as 1 
turned the ignition, the mighty 
roar of its 427 cubic inch engine 
reaffirmed my confidence in it. 
My partner on the usually 
tedious night shift, Ted Camlin, 
climbed in alongside me and sat 
in mute silence as we sped out 
the garage door and into the 
oblivion called night. 

Though it was just one of a 
thousand such rescues, there 
was no shaking the feeling that 
this one, a trip to the Jupiter 
Island beach, would be 
somehow different than any 

In a matter of minutes we 
arrived at the origin of the call, a 
barren stretch of sand decorated 
with rusted beer cans, old tires 
and some trees. The latter bent 
away from the ocean, as if in 
fear, crippled by the powerful 
winds of a hurricane years past. 

The moon hid behind the 
clouds, and only the ever-mov- 
ing beams of police flashlights 
and the occasional sweep of a 
lighthouse beam provided any 
illumnination. An officer, 
flashlight pointing, guided us to 
a secluded spot around which 
policemen were gathered. 

Lying in a bed of sand and 
clothes in a scanty frock was the 
body of a frail young girl. In one 
hand, grotesquely stiffened by a 
state of rigor mortis, was a small 
pocket knife. The other hand, 
obscured by a pool of blood, lay 
at her side. Both wrists were 

"Happens all the time," Ted 
grunted as we lifted the bodv 

into the back of the ambulance. 
"Girl gets into a fight with her 
guy, decides it's all over - and 
takes the exit." He noticed the 
somber expression upon my 

"Look, Marc," he said as he 
closed the back doors and we 
got into the front seat, "If every 
doctor took each patient's death 
personally, where would he be? 
in the nuthouse, that's where." 

"How can you be so cold?" I 
asked as we began the long trek 
to the county morgue. "That's 
a young girl there - flesh and 
blood - a whole life snuffed out. 
You don't even care!" 

He leaned back and began to 
strap the body in. "Sure 1 care. 
I'm just as sorry as you are that 
the chick's dead. But I can't let 
it get to me - or I'll be uselss on 
the squad." 

"Why would someone fust 
end it all - so -so quickly?" I 
asked no one particular. "So 
young, so naive. . .there is just 

so much ahead for a girl like 
that. It really gets me down." 

"Maybe you're right," Ted 
admitted. "After 15 years of 
this • seeing wrecks and murder 
cases - one does become a little 
unfeeling." He pondered the 
tltouglTt as we swung _ out from 
the beach road onto the main 

"Wonder what her boyfriend 
will think?" I said. "You know, 
I mean when he comes to 
identifying the body. Suddenly 
that little quarrel or fight they 
had won't seem so little now. I 
can imagine how he'll feel. 

"Think of her family - 
mother, father, and the rest - all 
upset. Life will be pretty hard 
on them now." 

The ambulance cruised down 
the road, the red light perched 
on top silent for a change, as if it 
spoke of the grim fate of the. 

extra passenger. 

"I have to feel sorry for the 
girl," Ted said. He leaned back 

and removed the covers from 
her face to stare at it. 

"Look at her, so pretty with 
all that make-up. Hey, 1 just 
noticed something: all that 
make-up. . ." 

"What is it, Ted?" 

"The girl - the rouge, the lip 
gloss, all so heavily applied. 
The humidity caked it to her 
face in gobs. I hadn't really 
paid any attention to it." He 
took the covers off the body 

"So?" - 

"So it's not a girl - it's a 
guy!" Ted exclaimed. "A guy, 
dressed up as a chick." He 
dropped the covers and sank 
back into his seat, 

"Why?" 1 asked. 

The question is: are we supposed 
to feel sorry for him now?That's 
the difference. 

Back on tHe beach, a wave 
brought in by the changing tide 
engulfed the spot where the 
body had Iain. It pulled back to 
sea the blood, the last 
remaining memory of the trip to 
the beach.

Student Loans Offered 
At State Level 


Editorial Assistant 
Florida IMversity students 
should find education loans 
easier to come by here than 
elsewhere because of state aid. 
According to Carol Smith, 
director of financial aid at 
Florida Atlantic University, 
"The difference is the state has 
stepped into the field to aid the 
needy student. Most banks are 
moving out of the Federal 
Insured Student Loan program 
because lending money is 
difficult to find and the banking 
field sees the student loan 
program as a big hassle." 

A money pinch last year 
reduced the number of 
participants in FAU's student 
loan program by about a 
hundred. The figure is expected 
to rise again with the state in the 

Florida's loan program limits 
the aid to $1,500 during an 
academic year. The applicant 
must be a state resident for at 
least one year. This funding 
must be used for education 
costs, although that includes 
housing, food and transporta- 
tion along with tuition and book 

Funds have also been 
appropriated by the state and 
"should be available by 
December of this year for 
student aid which would cover 
those whose family income is 

above the $15,000 level and who 
are not eligible for interest-free 
loans," Miss Smith added.

what now - take the film to the 
drugstore and have it de-

the procedure we follow. 

For Jerry Uelsraann, inter- 
nationally known photographer, 
Donald Waxman and Ralph H. 
Blankenship Jr., former Palm 
Beach Junior College graduates 
and outstanding photographers, 
this is not enough. 

A show of fabulous works by 
these photographers can now be 
seen in the humanities building 
on the ground floor gallery. 

Jerry Uelsmann, famous for 
his photographs resuhing from' 
experimental dark room tech- 
niques, is represented in many 
private and public collections, 
some of which are the Addison 
Gallery, George Eastman - 
House, Metropolitan Museum, 
Museum of Modern Art, 
National Galleries of Canada 
and the Smithsonian. 

Uelsmann has this to say 
about his photographs and dark 
room tecliniques, "It is ray 
conviction that the dark room is 
capable of being in the truest 

sense, a visual research lab; a 
place for discovery, observation 
and meditation." 

Donald Waxman's work has 
been exhibited in group shows 
at the University of Iowa, 
Chicago, Illinois, London Col- 
lege, London, England, Gallery 
1, North Palm Beach and Fort 
Lauderdale Museum of the 

Many of his photographs have 
been featured in magazine 
publications. "Camera", pub-

published some of his photo-

uate of PBJC, Ralph H. 
Blankenship Jr. started his

fall of 1970. He was an art 
major who worked for one and a 

half years before reorientating j 

his studies to photography and i 
upon graduation in 1973 he 

received an Associate Degree. ■

The Chess Club is off to a 
floundering start. At this time 
the club has about seven 
members but Terry Wilkinson, 
president, feels there are many 
more people who are interested 
and do not know about the club. 
The major problem at this 
time is not the lack of members 
but the lack of an advisor for the 
club. In accordance with the 
rules of the college, no club or 
organization may receive any 
■^ funds from the school without 
I having an advisor or sponsor. 
I Without funds to function, the 
I club will either have to find their 
I own ways to raise the funds or 
I else disband. 

I The chess club can be found 
I in the northeastern end of the 
I SAC lounge. This club is not 
I only for the expert chess player, 
I but it is also for anyone who 
I would like to learn the game. 
1 For aU interested people there is 
I a yellow sign-up sheet by the 
"* mailboxes in the back of the 

SAC Lounge. 

At the present time the club is 
only in the organizational stage 
but they have hopes of entering 
tournaments on the state and 
county levels and also even 
sponsoring a tournament for all 
interested PBJC students. 

Terry has a great interest io' 
the game as well as in the club: 
and is really working hard to get; 
this club off the ground. So, are- 
there any interested advisors foi ! 
the club? With the right people; 
and spirit, Terry sees the chance- 
for becoming county or evenj 
state champions! 

AV Avenues Open 

Feature Editor 

A little known area of JC is 
the Audio Visual Center on the 
.first floor of the library building. 
It contains invaluable resources 
for students and has TV filming 
and monitoring rooms, film 
rooms, and a close-circuit 
monitor room. 

Staffed by JC Work Study 
students, under the direction of 
Mr. Milton Thomas, the center 
is open from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 
p.m. Mondays through Thurs- 
days and from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 
p.m. on Fridays. In order to use 
the tapes, machines, and other 
aids, a JC library card must b e 
presented at the take-out desk. 

Palm Beach Junior College's Learning Recourses Center offers 
students a vast variety of both audio visual teaching aids. 

The center contains a printing 
press (for the printing of posters 
and pamphlets;, filmstrip pro- 
jectors, TV monitors, slide 
projectors, and tape cassette 
players. TV shows or films from 
the library can be monitored 
into classrooms for use with 
current lessons. 

The tape library in the AV 
Center houss 600-700 video 
tapes on catalog and contains 
Spanish and French tapes which 
can be checked out overnight. 
For students convenience blank 
cassettes can be brought in and 
taped for personal use. 

the film library is quite 
extensive (664 films) and 
besides the usual science and 
math films, contains police 
instructional films and the film 
of "Future Shock". These can 
be viewed, with the exception of 
certain police films. 

"We cover every area of 
curriculum on campus," reports 
Thomas. So far the nursing and 
dental hygiene schools are the 
two main areas using the lab. 
Thomas hopes more students 
and faculty wili take advantage 
of the services the Audio Visual 
Center offers them.

Gross Attends AIBS Conference 


Staff Writer 

Mr. Richard Gross, JC 
biology instructor attended the 
Silver Anniversary meeting of 
the American Institute of 
Biological Sciences (AIBS) at 
Arizona State University in 
June. 1974. 

Over 2,000 biologists atten- 
ded the seminar which included 
exhibits, workshops and over 
100 research reports. 

The week long trip, during 
which Gross took pictures and 
gathered information to bring 
back to JC, also offered a field 
trip that lasted from 6 a.m. until 
! a.m. the next morning. The 
trip covered 400 miles of the 

desert and took the biologists 
through the desert and into the 
mountains, stopping at intervals 
to let them study the terrain. 

Gross was impressed by many 
things. "The heat was like an 
oven, a dry oven." he said and 
concluded, "It was a different 
world." He also felt that the 
desert people were friendlier 
that city people. He was happy 
to see that the homes did not 
have lawns, but had giant rock 
gardens instead. "This is good 
ecologically, it saves so much 
water" he said. 
■ In addition to his visit to 
Arizona, Gross had been 
working on a biology book: 
Biology; An Uncommon Intro- 

duction by Robert McNally. 
Gross was asked to go over the 
manuscript and decide what 
pictures were needed and to 
submit his own. 

"I have had pictures in other 
books, but not as many as this" 
he said, "I was like the photo 

Out of the 75 pictures he, sent 
50 were used. In addition to 
Gross's pictures, Steve Kratka, 
then President of the Science 
Club, submitted 20 pictures, 9 
of which were used in the book.

Mrs. Nobis finds exciting. 

She says the Sweet Adelines 
keeps a repertoire of old tunes 
such as "I Want A Girl Just Like 
the Girl Who Married Dear Old 
Dad" because our audiences 
like them, but we're also 
learning some of the more 
modern songs." 

She's loved music for as long

six-years-old, her parents heard 
her picking out melodies on the

of the Music Department). 

She has a son and daughter

type of, humor found in 
"American Graffiti" and - 
''Happy Days", the answer 
won't be here. The script,

their potential and expectations. 
Unless one has a taste for 
watching any type of outdated

"The Lords of Flatbush" is 
worth no more than a early bird

Turnout Pleases Rhodes 

Sports Editor 

Dusty Rhodes, PBJC baseball 
coach, will have no problem 
filling up every position on his 
1975 squad. Fifty two players 
reported for practice last week. 

Rhodes says the large turnout 
at practice has both advantages 
and disadvantages. 

"I've had to split the team 
into two groups," said Rhodes. 
"I work with the infielders while 
the outfielders are in the batting 
cage on one day and reverse the 
process on alternate days." 

Rhodes added that the 
majority of the ball players are 
non-scholarship players. 

"We have 18 scholarship 
players and the rest are all 
walk-ons," said Rhodes. 

"We have a lot of good 
players who just walk out for 
practice," said Rhodes. "Some 
of the walk-ons may be good 
enough to take a job away from 
some of the scholarship 

Rhodes feels the larger 
number of players and the 
increased competition it' brings 

will be an asset to his team. 

"It isn't just a case of 
quantity," he said. "We have a 
lot of good players trying for all 
the positions. This competition 
will keep everybody on their 

"I'd like to cut the squad 
down to 30 guys by the end of 
the Fall. We p'ay our first 
preseason game on January 
10th and I'd like to make the cut 
before then," said Rhodes. 

The baseball team has a fall 
schedule of 20 games so Rhodes 
has a chance to evaluate all his 
players. Dade North, Indian 
River and Broward are three of 
the teams the Pacers will play. 

"I want to see how the buys 
look against good teams," said 
Rhodes. "With a schedule like 
the one we have this fall I will be 
able to tell what kind of people I 
have to work with." 

Rhodes said he is very 
optimistic about his first year as 
head coach. 

"Dade North and Dade South 
won't be where they were last 
year," he said. "Both teams 
lost a lot of players through

one of our strong points. ' * ' 'We

There is little weakness in the 
hitting department, he said. 
"We have some good hitters 
trying out and some of our 
better hitters are returning from 
last year's team." 

Rhodes is taking other steps 
to improve the entire athletic 
program at JC. 

"When you do something you 
do it for the college," said 
Rhodes. "You can't support 
one program and not another."

support all of our programs from

The Intramural and Recre- 
ation Department is sponsoring 
a bowling tournament begin- 
ning Wednesday, Oct. 2 from 4 
to 6 p.m. at the Major League 
Lanes in Lake Worth. 

The I and R' board will pay for 
the first six weeks of the 
tournament furtiishing three 
games and bowling shoes at no 
cost to JC students. 

The remaining six weeks of 
the tournament costs the 
students S1.65 per day which is 
far less than area bowling alleys 
normally charge, according to 
Roy Bell, director of the 
intramural program. 

The tournament is played on a 
team basis with men's and 
women's teams of four 
'members competing for the top 
prize as a team. 

Individual awards are offered 
in both catagories. Honors will 
be given for high to'tal, high 
series, high average and high 
single game. 

The tournament will last as 
long as students remain 
interested, said Bell. 
■ Inividuals and teams who 
wish to compete in the bowling 
tournament should fill out the 
application form available in 
this week's Beachcomber and 
bring the form to office 4K in 
the gym. 

Participants are asked to meet 
promptly at 4 p.m. on the first 
day of the meet.

Roberto Rizo, a native of 
Venezuela, return from last 
year's team, when a 19-1 record 
for the best mark in Pacer tennis 
history was compiled. 

Rizo, ranked number one in 
his native Zulia, Venezuela, had 
a record of 23-3 in his 1974 
season which included a victory 
in the state doubles match. 

Gary Ray, an, all Conference 
netter and a member of Lake 
Worth High's Senior Hall of 
Fame in 1973, won 13 matches 
against six losses during his 
freshman year at JC. 

McGirt reaps the benefits of 
Hamid Faquire's recruiting 
talents as he works with 
freshmen Normond Russell and 
John McCarley. 

Faquir, who served as interim 
tennis coach while McGirt took a 
sabbatical leave to work on his 
Doctor's degree at VPI, signed 
the two candidates earlier this 

Russell is a 17-year-old from 
Kingston Jamaica and is ranked 
as the number one junior singles 
player in the Carribbean and the 
number seven overall male 
singles player in the islands. 

"He's good enough to be our 
number one player this year and 
at this point I can see where he 
is better than Clive Rothwell 
was at a similar point in his 
career," said McGirt. 

Rothwell was a native of 
England who played in the 
number one position during his 
two-year stay at JC. 

McGirt explained that Russ-

player include a consistant serve 
and volley.

Alcohol Resolution Returns

News Editor 

In an effort "to find out where 
student interest lies so that we 
can channel our energies in 
those directions," SG's Execu- 
tive Board is undertaking a 
massive survey of JC students. 

SG's newly created Question- 
naire Committee met Friday to 
draft specific questions for the 
survey, which covers such 
diverse topics as beer and wine 
on campus, used book sales, 
and establishment of a VD clinic 

atPBJC. ^ . 

Executive Board Vice Presi- 
dent Dolor Ginchereau expects 
the survey to be distributed to 
classes within" the next four to 
five weeks. 

"Originally my idea was to do 
the survey on the beer and wine 
issue," said Ginchereau. 
"However, the executive d 

has extended the survey to >ju=er 
areas so we know where to 
direct our energies." 

Ginchereau wants to include 
questions concerning alcohol in 
the survey, despite the fact that 
a special referendum was held 
on the same issue last spring. 
The resolution called for ''the 
, possession and consumption, 
but not sales and distribution, of 
alcoholic beverages on campus 
for non-class hours." 

Though 150 out of 194 
students approved the alcohol 
resolution, Ginchereau felt the 
small voter turnout made the 
results "not a valid indication of 
how the student body feels." 

Explaining further, Gincher- 
eau commented that "because 
of the small ratio of last spring's 
vote, I. don't feel I could go to 
the Board of Trustees and 
justify that students at JC want 
beer on campus." 

Questionnaire Committee me- 
mbers have not discussed the 
survey with administration 

officials. However, Ginchereau 
feels that discussions with the 
administration are probably 
going to occur after the results 
are tabulated. 

"Data Processing will be 
assisting us in tabulating the 

results," said Ginchereau. Ttie 
SG vice-president also is urging 
students to submit suggestions 
and questions for possible use in 
the .questionnaire', to the 
executive board mailbox in the 
North SAC Lounge. 

New Library Plan 


Staff Writer 

JC and 98 other colleges, 
junior colleges and universities 
throughout the southeastern 
part of the United States have 
united their libraries by 
computer. This computerized 
library system is known as 
Solinet (Southeastern Library 
Institutional Network). 

The system, an offspring of 
the Ohio College Library Center 
(OCLC), lists the titles of all the 
books that are entered in the 
card catalogs of the 99 member 

Each book is listed only once 
and a computer typed catalog 
card is sent to every college that 
has that particular publication. 
When a new publication is 
received by the college it can be 
processed into the computer's 
memory banks. Then if the book 
is already listed in ihe memory 
bank, the charge that must be 
paid will be only three cents for 
the catalog card. 

If the book is not already 
listed in the computer's memory 
bank, there will be an extra 
charge of nine cents per book 
along with the charge for the 
printed card. 

For Solinet's first three years, 
their computer will be tied into 
the memory banks of the 
OCLC's computer. This not only 
gives Solinet easy access to 
more books but it is also helping 

to build up the memory banks of i 
their own computer. There will i 
be a slight overhead charge for 
this time period but at the end of I 
the three years Solinet will be on ■ 
its own two feet and will not ■ 
have to pay out extra money to I 
the OCLC for the use of its 

The purpose of Solinet is tc ; 
allow for a much more rapi<i -y^gy | 
of cataloging books, supply a; 
reference service to all niembei I 
colleges and also have greater 
accessibility to a larger nutnberi

Circle K Searches For An Advisor 

Staff Writer 

Circle K has been in search of a faculty advisor since 
la'*- January, according to Jerry Kreucher, president of 
the service club . 

The advisor's duties include responsibility for the 
club's actions, attending all the club's meetings, doing 
paperwork and acting as the club's spokesman. 

"This is a tremendous load to put on teachers," 
comments Kreucher. "They're just too busy. If a 
teacher is going to be an advisor he should be given a 

lighter class load. It used to be set up like that. It's 
partly the administration's fault and partly apathy on 
the part of the teachers," he added. 

Kreucher has placed announcement's in faculty 
bulletins and has talked to all the deans and 
department heads. 

"I've done alll can," he said. "I can't go ask every 
teacher on campus." 

Although all clubs on campus are supposed to have 
two advisors, last year Circle K functioned with only 

"However, she was too busy to be of much help," 

said Kreucher. 

"I'm so used to doing the paperwork that it won't 
make that much difference if we don't find an advisor, 
but I'd like one just to make it legal." 

Apathy isn't a problem only with teachers. Circle K' 
membership is very low and Kreucher would like to 
improve it. 

"Circle K is the only active service club on campus. 
All you need is $10 and a desire to do a little work. ' It's 
the easiest club to get into," notes Kreucher.

of elections the problems began 
when Marc Graham, secretary 
of elections, called several 
candidates and told them there 
would be no election. Only 24 
people were running for the 
same number of seats. 

Upon finding out about 
Graham's decision, Tory Buck- 
ley, SG president, informed 
there would be elections as 
stated in the. constitution. 

When voting started Monday, 
many poll workers had not been 
the voting continued. Voter 
notified that the elections would 
be held which resulted in a 
shortage of help at the polls. 

Later Monday the voting 
machine on the Business Patio 
was found to be faulty, so it was 
closed. Despite these problems 
turnout was light with only 2% 
of the entire student body 

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Beachcomber ■\vas promised by Dolor 
Ginchereau,, SG vice president, to be given the results of the re- 
cent .senate elections. Ginchereau did not meet his obligations. 

The Beachcomber firmly believes that the student body has 
the right to know tlie results of any student govermnent activ- 
ity as soon as possible. 

The Beachcomber made repeated attempts to obtain the in- 
formation but received absolutely no cooperation from SG. 

Buckley attributed the poor 
turnout to the fact that "People 
don't care enough to take the 
time to vote," 

Only 24 people were running 

for office but the voting 
machines showed 26 names. 
This was due to the fact that two 
of the candidates dropped out at 
the last minute.

(EDITOR 'S NOTE: James Cleare, a newcomer to the Beach- 
comber staff, has an impressive background in the field of investi- 
gating, and will be offering his services to the student body in 
thisliew column, entitled "Investigation. " 

If you have a gripe, question, or some information on a problem, 
we urge you to bring a written explanation to the Beachcomber 
office, and investigator James Cleare will do the follow-up.) 

Q Two men have recently been spraying a white foamy liquid Into 
the northern end of Lake Osborne, adjotaing JC's campus. What 
ate they up to? 

A - The two men are employed by the Mosquito Control 
Department, under the direction of Mr. John Thuss. 

"We only use chemicals approved by the State Board of Health," 
said Thuss. The chemicals used such as Curon, Diquat and Dowpon 
"are high in their toxic levels and therefore harmless to fish and 
marine life," according to the director. 

The need for chemicals is intense because of a large amount of 
alligator weeds in the northern end of Lake Osborne. The stems of 
the alligator weeds provide an excellent breeding spot for the 

According to Thuss, the alligator weeds "are worse at the 
northern end of Lake Osborne than any other place in the county." 

Now that winter approaches, the mosquito population will be on 
the declin^. Thuss assured me that "mosquitos can't grow too well 
in winter due to lack of nutrients." 

Q - Why are the clocks at this college never telling the right time? 
The clock m Social Science 1 is never working! 

A Tliat clock is probably one of fifty or mca-e malfunctioning units in 
the JC clock system. 

Over 15 years ago the present system of clocks was installed, with 
the master clocks located in the Finance office. 

Malfunctioning is caused by rain seeping into the large manholes, 
located in four niajor areas of activity throughout the school. 

Director of JC's Physical Plant, Mr, Claude Edwards, indicates 
that "whenever we have heavy rains, the four major circuits located 
in the man holes are flooded with water; this causes electrolysis to 
take place, thereby corroding the circuits." 

Edwards also says that terminals which have remained dry have 
corroded because of the awkward position they are placed in by 
being under ground. 

"If clocks are less than 15 minutes off," said Edwards, "they will 
be corrected by signals sent from the master clock; but if they get 
beyond the 15 minute limit, . they have to be reset by going 
underground to one of the manhole terminals." 

Another cause of the poor system, according to Edwards, is the 
Lake Worth Power Company, which provides "inconsistent power 
service which often affects the timing," 

Plans call for a total recabling to the present system in the near 
future, and frankly, its about time!

Board Hopefuls Vie 
For JC Student Vote 

Staff Writer 

School Board Candidates addressed students in 
the SAC Lounge at an assembly sponsored by the 
campus Political Union club Wednesday. 

The furst guest speaker was Dr. Bradley T. 
Coates who began his talk by stating that teacher 
morale is one of the major problems in the Palm 
Beach county school system. He cited the results of 
a recent teacher survey showing 63%of the

Dr. Bradley T. Coatesi "Teacher morale is one of 
the major problems m the . . . county schools." 

Local Firms Rejected 

teachers feel the Superintendent of Schools and 
the School Board show little concern for them. 

Coates states an incentive type pay program for 
teachers should be instituted based on the teachers 
graduate hours. 

He also feels that the school board should pay 
for any mandatory schooling of teachers in pre- 
paration for classroom teaching. 

Visual and hearing tests should be administered 
from Kindergarten through the third grade says 
Dr. Coates, because reading problems, if resolved 
early, would be taken care of. 

JC teacher Dr. C. Errol Hicks, a member of the 
Palm Beach County's School Board four years, has 
seen the system undergo many changes during 
that time. 

He says "In the past four years the students 
have been subjected to a totally different and 
unique experience in human relations," causing 
an improvement for both the schools and the 
students. There are still a number of problems that 
need to be solved, he states and main problem 
being over-crowding in the schools. 

Hicks feels that everyone should "realize the 
significance of the school system in the 
community." . 

Daniel W. Hendrix was the final speaker. He 
also has been member of the school board for the 
past four years and during that time has organized 
many new programs. 

He feels a greater emphasis should be placed on 
reading in the elementary schools and portable 
classrooms as well as 34% of all other roonis 
should be air conditioned. When Hendrix was 
asked what motivates him, he said care about the 
community and the schools. 

Trustees Select Campus Planner

Shunting bids of three local 
companies, JC's Board of 
Trustees chose a St. Louis 
architectural firm for the 
planning of the Belle Glade and

campuses at its Sept. 18 

If an agreement including 
both duties and price can be 
reached, Hellmuth, Obata and

Ecology Course Available Ai JC 

JC is now offering a course called The 
Environment, Society and You, It will be 
instructed by Mr. Bruce Robinson a member of 
the Federated Conservation Council and selected 
speakers from agencies, educational institutions 

and industry. 

Classes are scheduled in the PBJC North

School. Interested students should register at 
Watkins in Room El at 6:30 p.m. on October 1. 
The. fee is $10.00. 

HOK was recommended in a 
motion by trustee Ms. Harry 
Anstead, who said the firm has 
"the most experience building 
educational facilities throughout 
the country." Trustees Dr. R. 
L. Smith and M. S. Hand joined 
Ms. Anstead in approving HOK

September's Board meeting 
also included postponement of a 
motion urging the Board to 
appeal a teacher pension law. 
The law is considered discrim-

Faculty Senate members.

January 1, 1975, makes it 
mandatory for employers to 
make regular four per cent 
pension contributions for all

Speaking before the Board, 
Ms. Maxine Vignau, Faculty 
Senate Vice-chairman, said the 
law is discriminatory to 102 JC 
teachers now under Social 
Security. ' 

Despite Gov. Reubin Askcws 
recommendation be considered 
the bill was passed without any 
Social Security provision. 

Ms. Vignau said local State 
Sen. Russell Sykes had told her 
the bill was rushed through at 
the end of the legislative 
session. Exclusion of Social 
Security members in the bill Was 
just an oversight, he said.

WRAP Returns 

I Photo by Jim Collins

News Editor 

Following a series of unforseen 
difficulties and bad breaks, campus radio 
station WRAP returned to the cafeteria 
airwaves September 23. 

A new Bogen amplifier, similar to the 
one that blew out earlier in the semester, 
has been installed - successfully - and 
now WRAP is on the air daily, except 
weekends, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Among the problems causing the 
3-week delay in the debut of the station 
were an old Bogen unit which blew out in 
testing, a foul-up in purchase orders, a 
fire which destroyed the compariy from 
which a new amp was originally ordered 
from, and a communication problem 
between those installing the amps. 

OAA Selects New Leaders 

Staff Writer 

Ovetta Jackson was elected president 
of JC's black service club, the 
Organization of Afro-American Affairs 
(OAA), following the resignation of 
Marion Butler at Wednesday's OAA 

Ms. Butler, elected president Septem- 
ber 18, resigned because she felt the

with my job and my activities on 

Also elected to positions for the '74 - 
'75 school year are the following:

Few Use 
Bus Service 

Staff Writer 

Though county bus service is provided 
for students who need transportation to 
JC, Paul J. Glynn, Dean of Student 
Personel, reports that very few students 
are using it. 

The service was established on 
September 16, 1973 after 10 years of 
ncgoiiaiions beiwccii Paini Beach Couniy 
Transit Authority and Glynn. 

The buses run 7:25 a.m. - 6:25 p.m. 
from Lake Worth to JC on Route 6. 
Transportation is available for those who 
live outside Lake Worth. Schedules are 
posted on bulletin boards. 

Student Government worked on 
surveys which showed a definite interest 
in the service, before it was established. 

According to Glynn there is now little 
demand for the buses. 

"If demand was greater we'd get 
better bus service," notes Glynn , "but 
students have a felxible course schedule 
tied in with jobs. This necesshates 
owning a car. I don't know how to beat 

For many years special buses were 
provided for students from the Glades, 
but the service was discontinued. Less 
and less students rode them after the 
Glades Center was established. 

Last year an unsuccessful attempt was 
made to develop an express line for 
evening students. 

"As this area grows more metropoli- 
tan, more buses will be used," says 
Glynn, "but students won't use them 
unless they absolutely have to." 

Sandra Fields; Executive Board mem- 
bers, Arlene Anders, tony Patrick, and 
Kim Baker, 

OAA adviser Ms. Jacqueline Rouse 
explains that both white and black 
students are eligible for OAA 
membership. "I'm not going to rope 
whhes to join the OAA, ' ' said Ms. Rouse. 
"All students that pay activity fees can 
become members." 

As stated in the club's constitution: 
"The purpose of OAA is to promote 
interactions between Afro-American 
students at JC and the administration, 
faculty and other students and to 
develop a better understanding in 
reducing and overcoming the effects of 
racism and discrimination," 

OAA plans to open lines of 
communication with other colleges and 

universities, thus helping members to 
become move aware of blacks and their 
involvement in the world. 

Currently, OAA is conducting a drive 
to aid the research of Sickle Cell Anemia, 
a major disease among blacks today. 

Project funds raised last year will be 
added to this year's Sickle Cell money 
and are to be contributed to the Howard 
University Research Center, where a cure 
for the disease is being sought. 

To raise money for the "Sickle Cell 
cause, OAA plans to sponsor dances after 
basketball games, hold bake sales, and 
prepare and serve dinners. 

At the close of Wednesday's meeting. 
President Jackson expressed her 
personal feelings to members of theOAA 

"Being black can only be beautiful if 
you have something to give within that 
will leave an impression for the best' 
interests of the black race."

The communication problem was 
brought out in an editorial letter 
published in the Beachcomber last week. 
WRAP'S former Chief Engineer Ed 
Hammond, who has been dismissed, 
challenged former manager Carlos 
Bank's assertion! that "there was smoke 
all over in the WRAP studio" following 
the amplifier blowout. 

"There was absolutely no smoke, nor 
did we have to "sniff around" to find out 
what had happened," stated Hammond 
in his editorial. 

Another bone of contention concerns 
where Banks was during the tesfing of 
the amp, made September 2, a day prior 
to WRAP'S scheduled debut. 

Banks contends that to test the 
equipment he put a record on, then left 
the WRAP studio, next to the 
Beachcomber office, and was in the 
cafeteria when the amp blew. 

Hammond, however, claims that Banks 
was still in the studio adjusting sound 
levels while he (Hammond) was at the 
SAC Patio to listen to the stations' sound 
out-put. , 

Hammond further said that "had 
Carlos and the others been adequately 
instructed and had the operating 
instructions been readily available, the 
whole problem might have been 

Current WRAP Manager Dave 
Drummond, appointed manager by SG 
President Tory Buckley immediately 
following Banks' September 12 resig- 
nation, insists that the amplifier blowout 
was "nobodys' fauU" and that Hammond 
was dismissed for reasons other than the 
amplifier squabble. 

"The amplifier blowout was a 
combination of human error and technical 
things that no one could have realized," 
said Drummond. 

Drummond informed the Beachcomber 
Wednesday that Hammond's dismissal 
followed the installation of the current 

Three WRAP employees, Glenn 
Powell, Dough Reich, and Hammond 
installed the new amp so that Drummond 
could determine which "had the most 
time and interest for the job of WRAP 

"We found that whereas all three were 
equally competent electronically, Reich 
had the most spare time and Powell the 
most interest in broadcast radio. 
Therefore, we have named Reich and 
Powell as WRAP'S co-technicians. 

"I informed Ed (Hammond) that while 
he is competent in ham radio and 
electronics, the other candidates were 
more directly involved with our mode of 
communication," said Drummond 

Now that the new amp has been 
successfully installed, Drummond is 
hoping to increase WRAP'S sound output 
by fusing the old amp and the new Bogen 
model into a parallel circuit. 

Because the old amp must be repaired 
before a parallel circuit can be completed, 
and since WRAP'S warranty on, the 
one-year-old amp is missing, Drummond 
says "I'm for fixing it at a local repair 

"If we can get that done we're 
practically home free." 

Media Offers Prizes

Questions Poll Validity 

Due to the esteem held by many for public 
opinion polls, and to the proliferation of these 
polls, perhaps we should look more closely at 
some of the methods used to arrive at the widely 
trumpeted results. 

Paul Harvey, noted conservative and 
commentator, took a poll at one of his recent 
appearances. Of 22 newspeople present, 20 were 
for two against impeachment of tormer 
President Nixon, a solid 10 to one for 
impeachment. The several thousand people in 
the audience were also polled, which resultea m 
almost the same ratio, except reversed; 10 to one 

against impeachment of the former president. 

Our own local morning paper, which works tne 
left side of the street, took a poll of its readers on 
the same question (which Congressman Rogers 
followed with great interest, we are told) and 
their results were a two to one vote tor 

impeachment. .. . ^i. 

We may ask why the great difference m these 
polls, both taken in good faith? The simple 
answer is that the audiences of both are 
psychologically selected. So what, then, is the 
validity of these two polls? 

The simple answer, zero. ^ -, ^ ^^

Mike's View 

Election Reforms Needed 


Lord knows "we the people" 
here in good ole U.S. of A. 
dearly need election reform if 
we are to intelligently elect a 
sound crop of representatives 
able to lead us, post haste, to 
the "path of human survival 
from which we have regrettably 

Through election reform, we 
can dig out, once and for awhile, 
the political perennial weeds 
(existing and potential) of our 
nation and then therapeutically 
cast them into the aggravated, 
bounding, polluted seas that 
misrepresentation creates. 
There the weeds might absorb 
the oils and toxics dumped 
therein. Alas, a weed can come 
to the aid of its country. 

A recent Gallop Poll indicates 
67% of those polled favor 
government financing of federal 
election - the banning of private 
donations. I feel this is good, 
except that private donations, 
instead of being banned, should 
be limited. We want to vote for 
a candidate according to his or 
her ability, not their public 
relations extravaganza. 

I favor election reform that 
would make television debates 
mandatory on both state and 
federal levels. 

In structuring televised de- 
bates, dates and times should 
be organized so that the mass 
electorate will have ample 
opportunity to methodically 


view the candidats and decipher ' 
their stands, personalities and 
overall qualifications for office. 
This seems to elementarily 
easy to accomplish. Why the 
delay? We're waltzing on the 
moon these days and dragging 
our feet on earth. 

When we begin to reform our 
election policies along and 
above lines, 1 know we'll be 
taking a major step for mankind 
right here on earth. 

Let us never again elect 
through ignorance those who 
look at public office and think, 
"What can my country do for 
me?" Let's modernize our too 
long held, out-dated electorial

51 Percent' 



American children are, from birth, shoved into a mold and made 
to fit regardless of their individuality. I am speaking of the way we 
pressure little boys into being ■ agressive unemotional males and 
pressure little girls into passive emotional females. 

It is my contention that boys and girls are not given an equal 
chance from the very start. During the succeeding weeks I will 
present different cultures that have not been influenced by the 
Tradition-bound Judeo-Christian ethic. There is an interesting 
study of first through eighth grade readers that will also illustrate 
my point. 

The first tribe I was interested in were. the mountain-dwelling 
Arapesh of New Guinea. The people live on a jagged infertile 
mountain, and as a result, have formed a cooperative or communal 
society. They can be described as a passive tribe - biolence and 
selfisliness are incomprehensible to their way of life. 

Their sole purpose inlife, other than the creature comforts, is to 
raise their children into fully cooperating adults in the tribe. Both 
parents share equally in this responsibility. The men, as well as the 
women have been described as maternal. 

At the birth of a child, the father brings the mother water to 
drink, tree leaves for the child to sleep on. He also brings a wooden 
pillow, used to protect his elaborate head dress, as he lays next to 
the mother. The people say he is in bed having a baby. 

The people believe that women's heads are stronger, so they have 
the job of carrying firewood up the slopes to the villages. The 
firewood is suspended in a net bag from their foreheads and can 
weigh as much as 70 pounds. 

The task of taking care of the children frequently falls to the men 
while they are fixing a roof or planning the next cerraonial dance. 

The children grow up learning that there is little emotional 
difference between men and women. The men and women are 
equally affectionate, responsive and unagressive.

"You cannot teach a technical 
subject by standing up and 
talking - you have to do!" is the 
outlook of the Criminal Justice 
Institute chairman Larry D. 

Tuttle brings to the institute 
an enthusiastic appeal that is 
magnetic "If you are enthusi- 
astic about a subject it will catch 
on. If you don't show 
enthusiasm you're dead be- 
cause who's going to listen?" he 
The goal of the institute is to 

take young men and women 
interested in law enforcement 
and train him/her in the 
systematic approach to justice. 
This means that when a suspect 
enters the systeiu he is either 
guilty and will go through a 
system of rehabilitation or he is 
innocent and is freed some- 
where along the line. 

The importance of the 
institute is probably best 
expressed in the mock court 
room where on the wall is a 
small memorial to a former 
classmate - a Riviera Beach 
patrolman slain while on duty. 

To The Widow 

Staff Member 

To The Widow. . . 

A man stares coldly off in space, 

lines of tears adorn his face, 

He shows no pain, but there's a trace 

of a smile on his blackened lips. 

In his hand there rests a glass, 
half filled, a deadly glass, 
Of devils' juice for quick release, 
he sold his life to buy his peace. 

He wears a suit, the one he'd worn 

so many years before, 

and that demon thing', called a wedding ring, 

is with him on the floor. 

Light, from a window 

falls on him as a shroud 
And a cigarette, by his side, 
emits a spiral cloud. 

A man stares coldly off in space, 
lines of tears adorn his face, 
He shows no pain, but there's a trace 
of a smile on his lips. 

"Anonymity is perverse, and the weapon 
of cowards."

Club Covers Sales And Marketing 

Staff Writer 

Sheryl Grimm is the President 
of JC's Sales and Marketing 
Club. Their purpose is to train 
and give a working knowledge 
to people in the fields of 
retailing, fashion merchandis- 
ing and sales and marketing. 

The club is open to all 
interested students. The 
meeting situation of this 
organization is rather unusual. 
It is a course available and listed 
under the name of Retailing 
Practicum. The class meets 
every Tuesday and Thursday 
between 9:30 and 10:40. All 
interested people can sign up 
for this class next semester. 

Mr. Holzman and Mr. 
Waddell are the club sponsors 
and part of their devotion 
towards the club is shown by 
their attempting to find suitable 
jobs for all club members. 

Tlie Sales and Marketing 
Club's other new officers are: 
Bart Cunningham, Vice Presi- 
dent: Louise Sudduth, Vice 

President of Finance (treasu- 
rer)' Vice President of 
promotion, Marda Johnson 
(Reporter;; Vice President of 
planning (historian;), Phil 
Padgett; Lew Musser, Vice 
President of programming 
(parlimentarian); and Janice 
Forst, Vice President of 
Administration (secretary) 
There is also a total membership 
of fifty-one persons. 

This semester the club has 
numerous activities planned. 
To start with, is their October 30 
Blood Drive and Sheryl wishes 
that as many students as 
possible would turn out and 
make the drive a success. 

Next in line is the Officer 
Training Conference, October 
18-20. Twenty students 
including the officers from JC's 
Sales and Marketing Club will 
go to Orlando for seminars on 
sales and marketing, retailing, 
and fashion merchandising. 
There will also be seminars 
preparing the attendants for 
upcoming competition in the 

above mentioned field. 

On November 2, the club will 
present its fashion show for the 
students and December will see 
the club organizing a canned- 
goods drive for the needy. 

Speakers from different 
community businesses address 
the club members throughout 
the month and the members 
also have the responsibility ot 
decorating the display windows 
in the Business Administrations 
Building each month. 

There are many advantages to 
joining this organization, such 
as a DECA (Distributive 
Education Clubs of America) 
Scholarship Program offered 
through the club, and the 
chance to travel and compete on 
the national level. 

All new members are 
welcome and anyone who joins 
the Sales and Marketing Club 
will receive three credits since 
the club is organized around a 
classroom-type situation.

Pisces: Another good week 

commences with a proposition 

you're not likely to reject (or an 

offer you can't refuse). Trust 

more to your impulses and 

hunches than usual. 

Aries: Some objectives are 

going to be reached son, and 

some might not Don't give up 

what is truly significant, but pay 

attention to other points of view. 

Taurus: Remind yourself 

frequently of important dates - 

memory is likely to be somewhat 

clouded this week. An overhead 

conversation can be turned to 

your advantage, but reveling 

that you heard it could spoil 


Gemini: According to your 
plotted cycle, this should be, a 
peak week for you. Succeeding 
weeks will mark a slow 
downward trend. Make plans 
now and follow them through in 
the next three weeks if possible. 

Cancer: Moon-children have a 
distinct tendency to jump to 
conclusions, particularly right 
now. Don't let a snap 
judgement throw you. . .Think it 
through before you decide on

Libra: Music will play an 
important part in this week's 
events. It may be a concert you 
attend, a tune you hum or an 
instrument you play, but it can 
be put to favorable use. 
Scorpio: Risks you take are 
almost certain to turn out

thought of as a friend does not

holds a good surprise for you. 
Sagittarius: This week holds 
promises and threats in every 
direction. It is definitely not the 
time to become involved 
personally. Remain aloof. If 
you're in a position to make 
investments, do it now. 
Capricorn: This will be a very 
trying week, but things appear 
more hopeful in coming months. 
Try to keep away from any 
endeavor which seems unlikely 
to succeed. Be careful, you may 
be accident-prone. 
Aquarius: A new friend or 
attitude is featured. Be 
responsive and receptive to 
unusual situations.

Plans Trip 

The first official meeting of 
the Science Club began with the 
election of officers. Of those 
nominated, Dan Fried was 
elected President: Jerry Long, 
Vice-President, Thora Wilson, 
Secretary; and Lenette Gnann, 

Thirty-one members have 
joined the club, and according to 
Mr. Gross, co-chairman, that 
number is "unbelievable." In 
years past ' the number of 
members had not gone over 12 
or 15 in the begining, and this 
large number implies a good 
interest in the club, said Gross. 

The primary concern of the 
recent Science Club meeting 
was to discuss the first field trip. 

The club decided to make a 
primitive canoe run, starting 
near the River Bend Trailer Park 
and ending in Jonathan 
Dickenson Park. 

The run is 17 miles of mostly 
virgin territory, opening up into 
the river.

While the guidance depart- 
ment here at JC maintains a 
vast file on vocational and 
occupational subjects, the

most students do not have the 
time to make use of it. 

i.For these students.varied 
vocations will be explored in a 

new column- - with aide and 
suggestions from Donald Cook 
of the Guidance Department. 
These vocational studies will be 
presented in a series of articles 
on various occupational fields. 

Since a statewide survey of 
Junior college freshman indi- 
cated 58% hoped to learn about 
occupational fields available to 
them upon graduation, Cook 
suggestes that JC students be 
made more aware of some of 
these fields. 

Cook also said a student 
unsure of his interest in any 
field, can take the Vocational 
Interest exams. The exam is 
helpful in judging a person's 
interest in the vocation

presented November 7 - 10 at

young Greenwich Village intell-

wife, Iris Parodus, and their 

Playwright Lorraine Hans- 
berries, who also wrote "A 
Raisin in the Sun*', revolves the 
plot around the battle Sidney

powers that be when he decides 
to support Wally O'Hara, a 
reformed candidate. 

Brustein's friends include a 
27-year old black artist, Akton 
Scales, and Mrs. Brustein's 

Many hard working hours 
have gone into the production so 
far, with auditions and try-outs. 
"Theatre takes a great deal of 
time," commented Francis 
Leahy, director of the play. 

Three weeks ago, 30 people 
auditioned for the November 
play. According to Leahy, the 
two to three minute auditions 
"gives the student experience 
at this type of thing because 
many are going into this

The theatre department puts 
on three plays a year, one in 
each term. Usually a variety of 
plays are presented. Last year

one act play.

There is an old adage that 
says "long distance running is 
mostly mental". The theory can 
be disputed but nonetheless the 
"psycheout" is gaining mo- 

Telling a runner how sickly he 
looks, how thin he is or how pale 
his complexion seems is still one 
of the favorite methods. 

If this procedure is followed 
carefully, the victimized runner 
will fall with a thud at the sound 
of the starting pistol. Later, 
he'll complain of a myriad of 
symptoms ranging from simple 
nausea to appendicitis. 

More medical mayhem occurs 
when the star runner steps onto 
the track supported by a pair of 
crutches, drops them at the 
sound of the gun, and proceeds 
to run a sub-four-minute mile. 

There is also the hungry 
harrier who eats his "well done 
with everything - hold the 
mayo" while his compatriots get

team decided to help their own

which were engraved with the 
names of the other schools. 

These placards were placed in 
an area of soft white sand about 
200 yards long. 

As the runners rounded a turn 
into the sand they saw the name 
of their school glaring at them 
from the mock gravestone, they 
bit the dust. 

Many of them decided to 
change their athletic pursuits to 
something less strenous - like

with a clocking of 24:29 just two 
positions ahead of Mike Bell, 
who finished up the scoring with 
a 15th place and a time of 24:37. 

Head coach Dick Melear said 
he was pleased with the 
showing of his harriers. 

"I knew Dade South was gong 
to be tough," said Melear. 
"With all of the good people 
that they have they are hard to 
beat. I did think we were 
going to -beat Indian River, 
though," he said. 

The Pacers will travel tc 
Tallahassee Saturday for the 
Florida State University Invitat- 
ional to be held on the same 
course as last year's state meet. 
The main feature of the 
Tallahassee course, located or. 
the FSU golf course, is the 
rolling hilly ground which the 
runners must navigate. 

Last year the JC cross country 
team placed in the state meet. 
Coach Melear hopes his team 
will do much better than that on 
the satne course Saturday. 

' 'This year we have some very 
talented people," said Melear. 
"I'm sure we have the talent to 
beat some people."

Plays Dade JC 

Sports Editor 

The Pacer baseball team 
opens its 1974 Fall season at 7 
p.m. today at Miami Dade 

. Last year Dade North was one 
of the best teams in the nation 
receiving a fifth place rating in 
overall hitting with a team 
batting average of .335. 

North used their overall 
hitting strength to compile a 
45-15 season record last spring. 
Pat Putman tied for fifth in the 
nation with a total of 11 home 
runs in 58 games. 

North scored a triple play by 
taking first, third and fifth 
places in runs batted in with Ed 
Oliveros scoring 79 RBI's in 60 
games, Putnam with 63 RBI's in 
58 games, and Sam Cook with 
58 RBI's in 587 games. 

Craig Eaton wound up in 
second place in the nation in 
strikeouts with 131 strikeouts in 
138 2/3 innings. 

Dusty Rhodes, first-year 
coach for the Pacers, feels' 
optimistic about his team's 
chances for the upcoming 
season due to the depth and 
experience he feels the team 

will have. 

"We have 12 boys returning 
from last year," said Rhodes. 
"This is more than any other 
team in Division Four." 

Rhodes will have 52 prospects 
to work with during the fall, as 
he attempts to cut the squad to 
25 players before January. 

"We have a lot of good 
players who just walked out for 
practice, " Rhodes said. "Some 
of them may be able to take a 
job away from some of the 
scholarship players." 

According to Rhodes, the 
Miami schools won't be as 
tough as they were last year. 
"Dade North and Dade South 
won't be where they were last 
year," he said. "Both teams 
lost a lot of players through

Injections Cure 
Bone Condition 

Staff Writer 

A IS pound rooster "El 
Macho" has given researchers 
at Washington University a way 
to combat a bone condition 
thought to bring on Itidney 

"El Macho" produces an 
extremely sensitive antibody 
which can be used to monitor 
and control this bone disease. 
Patients of this infection suffer 
icidney failure and must depend 
on dialysis machines to cleanse 
their blood to survive. 

However, these machines 
often leave a deficiency of 
calcium in patients' blood 
making bones brittle, easily 

Researchers at the University 
found that roosters injected with 
parathyroid hormones from 
cows sometimes develop anti- 
bodies that react to human 
hormones, forming a method to 
measure hormone content in 

Researchers acknowlt dge a 
deficiency of calcium i the 
blood is indicated by an increase 
in the amount of parathyroid 

"Of all the roosters we tested, 
only one. "El Macho" produced 
an antibody that was so 
sensitive that it could be used 
effectively," stated Dr. E. 
Slatopolsky, director of the 
dialysis unit at Barnes Hospital 
in St. Louis. 

Using "El Macho's" anti- 
body, doctors can govern the 

patients' diet or infuse calcium 
directly into the blood during 
use of the dialysis machine, 
restoring the phosphorous 
calcium blance in the blood- 
stream. This arrests the bone 

"Not only was the E! Macho 
antibody at least 100 times more 
sensitive to the parathyroid 
hormone than the other 
animal's bodies - but it turned 
out that this rooster produces it 
in such quantities that there is 
enough to go around for every 
patient on dialysis in the 
world," Sr. Slatopolsky con-

Smith Reveals Secret Plansi

Managing Editor 

Richard Michau Smith, a member of the art department, has 
many interesting anecdotes to tell, but none quite so extraordinary 
as the top secret Project X-Ray. 

In 1943 during World War II, when Smith, a Marine Corps pilot, 
and head of a bombardier school in EI Centre, California, was 
suddenly reassigned as executiv officer to the ultra-secret testing 

Smith and nine other men from different branches of the service, 
were assigned to test the highly fantastic idea of an eccentric 
dentist, inventor, with evident government connections. 

The inventor claimed to have taken his plan to the White House 
where he first contacted Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt about his idea. 

Mrs. Roosevelt woke the sleeping president, who after listening 
to the idea, sent the inventor to the Pentagon to initiate tests. 

The diabolical plan was to load bomb-like containers with 
hundreds of bats, each with a timed incendiary capsule clipped to 
their bellies. 

The capsules, filled with napalm, would be set to ignite only after 
the bats had reached the gound and had flown to cool, dark places. 

The inventor reasoned that, when the "bomb" was dropped, a 
series of related Rube Goldbert-type steps would be set into motion 
causing thousands of fires, scattered over a vast range, making it 
impossible for municipal fire department to fight. 

Besides the potential great damage to a city, the fires, of 
unknown orgin, would cause a great deal of anxiety and worried 
speculation among the residents. 

The primary mission of Project X-Ray (now unclassified), as 
Smith explained was to test the ability of the bats to carry live 
incendiary capsules. 

And in order to accomplish this, some bats had to be captured 
first, Smith said. 

The men were sent to Carlsbad Caverns with huge butterfly nets 
to collect the bats, put them in cages, and fly them to EI Centre, 
where the Marines had erected a small building to house them. 

The building recreated the exact cave temperature and 

humidity, so the bats would survive for the testing. _ ; 

"Bats, like bears, tend to hibernate when it's cold, so for a perioJj 

of four to five months a year they're immobile," Smith stated. [ 

"We also learned, as an interesting fact, that during hibernaitosj 

the bat's heart beats only about once a day," he added. ; 

"We had to make sure, therefore, that we didn't capture ihemj 

while they were in hibernation," Smith commented. 

One of the owners wouldn't give up his guano rights, whitM 

meant that some of the men on the project were assigned, ib[ 

addition to their other duties, to shovel the guano (bat manure usedj 

for fertilizer) out of the cave for the rancher. i^ 

The caves were under 24-hour guard due to the top secret nmui 

of the project. Smith said. ,{ 

"After about a week's work on the testing, most of us depioreo! 

the whole idea, and thought it was a ridiculous, rather impracticsr 

scheme that would be difficult if not impossible to carry out. f 

remarked Smith. . r 

"Most of our progress reports did little to encourage continuKj 

testing on the project," the artist said. 5 

Although the military men assigned to the project were sowrit t:; 

secrecy, the inventor - dentist persisted in telling almost ever; 

casual acquaintance about his "batty idea," declared Smith. , 

An admiral with a large entourage of VIP's was sent froc, 

Washington to see how the project was developing after thru 

months. i 

Since the three manufacturers hadn't yet completed work (.' 

portions of the project, the bomb containers and incendiary device!, 

weren't ready, so the pilots in the group had to fly small planes ovf, 

the desert, hand-tossing the bats into the planes slipstream. ! 

"The test wasn't very successful," Smith relates. : 

During another rest the weather turned cool, and the bats we' 

into hibernation, making the occasion a complete fiasco, 

In February of 1944, Project X-Ray was suddenly disbanded «r 
no explanation to the participants. 

Smith later learned that the US Army had worked on tt 
inventor's idea earlier, for two years, before deciding it had '

Police Angered Over Patch 

Confronted Student 
Felt Threatened 





Asst. News Editor 

The confrontation between 
four off-duty West Palm Beach 
policemen and a student in the 
cafeteria Wednesday was a 
situation "We will do every- 
thing we can to correct," said 
Larry D. Tuttle, chairman of the 
Criminal Justice Institute. 

"Police officers who are 
students do not have any 
authority except as students. 
The officers should have 
notified security if they had a 
complaint," said Tuttle. 

The confrontation took place 
when a student, Robert 
Holland, was in the cafeteria 
wearing a West Palm Beach 
police patch on his knee. He 
was approached by the pfficers 
demanding that he remove his 
patch. The officers did not 
identify themselves as police- 
men but according to Holland, 
they told him the patch was 
stolen and he could be arrested. 
Holland said he received the 
patch from his mother who 
works for the WPB police as a 
matron . 

Tuttle called the incident 
regrettable and regarded it as 
the type of thing that gives 
policemen a bad image, "Chief 
William Barnes (WPB) will be 
notified." said Tuttle.

SG Slices Budgets 


News Editor 

Student Government's Exec- 
utive Board sliced more than 
$3,000 off the combined club 
budgets at the Oct. 1 meeting. 

Nearly all budget cuts were in 
the area of entertainment, 
dances, picnics, and parties. SG 
President Tory Buckley insists 
that SG is still funding social 
activities, but money is not to be 
allocated for an event unless 
three or more clubs or 
organizations make a combined 

The impact of the Executive 
Board decision was felt mostly 
by Phi Lo Sorority, whose 
annual Arch Ballwas not given 
any funds, though S500 was 
requested for the event. 

In-defending the budget cuts, 
Buckley urged the "greater 
representation of all groups on 
campus" in social events "so 
we're not running around in 
cliques on campus." 

President of Phi Lo, Karen 
Linderson, generally agreed 
with Buckley in theory, but 
stressed that the Arch Ball was 
an event that could "not do that 

much to get the clubs 

Ms. Linderson said the Arch 
Ball, a formal dance held late in 
the Winter Term, is "not the 
type of dance where you just go 
out to meet people. 

"However, we do keep it 
open to the student body. Last 
year, we had as many outsiders 
as people in our dub at the 
dance," she concluded. 

The funds needed for the 
Arch Ball, an annual event at JC 
since the mid-1940's, were the 
only monies requested by the 
Phi-Lo Sorority. 

With the club's original 
requests listed in parentheses, 
here are the budgets as 
approved at the Executive 
Board meeting October 2: 

Circle K ($2,200) - - S2,000 

Phi Da Di ($820) - -$50 

Phi Lo (S575) - -$.00 

Phi Theta Kappa (6,130.60 - 

Sales and Marketing ($1,250) 
- -$1,600. 

Science Club ($1,200) 

Sunburst Amateur Radio Club 
($315 - -$315 

WRAP ($2,000) - -$1,400 
OAA and Chi Sig have not yet 
submitted budget requests. 


Robert Holland, wearing a West Palm Beach police department 
shoulder patch on the knee of his jeans, was confronted by four 
off-duty West Palm Beach policemen Wednesday. According to 
Holland, they made him fear possible arrest if he did not 
immediately remove his patch. 

Witnesses stated that patrolmen Michael Kennedy, Michael 
Pontieri, John Slattery, and Michael Cerbone, all students at the 
Criminal Justice Institute, approached Holland in the cafeteria and 
demanded that he remove his patch. They did not identify 
themselves as police officers. 

"I asked the officers if 1 could give the patch to them later so I 
would not rip my pants trying to remove it. They told me they 
wanted it 'Right now!' because it was stolen property and I could be 
arrested. I felt if I didn't give them the patch they would try to 
remove it themselves or else arrest me," said Holland. 

The officers denied being belligerent and stated the encounter 
was brief and friendly. 

"The guy had a patch on that said 'City of West Palm Beach 
Police.' It doesn't belong on his knee - -he was defacing city 
property. We didn't approach him as police officers and we did not 
threaten arrest," said Pontieri. 

"Unless you are employed by the city of West Palm Beach or it is 
given to you by the city, then it is not your property," he said. 
Holland explained he told the policemen the patch was given to 
him by his mother who is employed by the department as a matron. 
According to Inspector Eaton of the West Palm Beach Police 
Department, "Since his mother works as a matron and gave him the 
patch, then he legally had the patch. From my understanding, the 
officers, thinking the patch was stolen, had the right to do what thev 

During the confrontation, witnesses heard someone tell Holland 
he could be arrested for stealing tlie patch. The officers deny 
making the remark, Slattery said he believed it was a student 
onlooker rather than a policemen. 

Earlier reports stating one of the officers threatened Holland by 
drawing his gun were not substantiated. Witnesses claim at no time 
did anyone attempt to use a weapon. 

"We asked him for the patch unofficially. We are here to be 
educated. It just got out of proportion," said Kennedy. 

Holland, whose mother and brother both work in law 
enforcement, said he was wearing the patch to "just cover a hole. I 
meant nothing disrespectful to the police." 

Pontieri^ explained the officers felt "the patch did not belong on 
his pants." He further stated they simply wanted to recover stolen 
city property. 

"If you possess property that is stolen, said Pontieri, "it is a

Humans Involved 
In Election Mess 

In a democracy, one of the most prized and important principles 
we hold dear is the right to vote. 

In the college - a community of the higher educated - it is of 
special concern that this principle is respected and preserved. In 
the September JC senatorial election (or fiasco), observers were 
reminded of the mismanaged county primary elections. This 
campus mess-up was not due to a computei problem- the fault lies 
completely in human hands. 

Even though a miniscule portion of the total student enrollment 
bothered to vote (2%), it proved too much for the Secretary of 
Election Marc J. Graham to cope with. 

The Beachcomber dutifully publicized the lackluster carnpaign 
which eventually produced 24 applicants for 24 senatorial positions. 
From that point on, the election was in the hands of Student 

Graham, in his report to the Executive Board Oct. 1, stated that 
he had checked out the two voting machines for mechanical 
difficulties when they arrived on campus Sept. 19. But on Sept. 24, 
the second day of voting, the machine in the Business Patio broke 
down and was closed to further use. No signs were put up to inform 
students who frequent only that area of the campus of the other 
polling place near the cafeteria. 

Graham stated that he "was unaware that the constitution 
required that an election be held each year." We simply cannot 
believe that the Secretary of Elections could be ignorant of 
constitutional rules concerning elections. 

He also took it upon himself to declare the elections unnecessary" 
after confering with several senators" , because only 24 candidates 
participated. Because of this, voting machines were not set up at 
the proper time, another violation of election rules. 

Had Graham asked the advice of the Executive Board or its 
advisor, Mr. Arnold Freedraan, he would have known the proper 
steps to take. Careful supervision and overall guidance of the 
elections by SG vice-president Dolor Ginchereau kept the elections 
from total destruction by improper handling. 

Graham also contends that elections should only be held on two 
days and two nights, and that only one machine is necessary. We 
couldn't disagree more. Inconvenience (for poll workers) is the 
poorest reason for such a change we have ever heard. 

If elections are to continue with any kind of meaning at JC, they 
must be brought up from the playpen level. This must be done to 
insure continued productivity by SG. 

Students deserve a Secrtary of Elections who is able to do the job, 
and do it properly. Perhaps the office should become elective, 
rather than appointive as it is now. 

Whatever the case, the first act of the Senate when it meets 
should be to set up a special committee to investigate this foul-up 
and make needed changes; steps should also be taken to revise the 
election rules. Uncontested elections are truly exercises m futility. 

Clear Mandate Gone 

As_ we stressed last week, the importance of the School Boatd- 
elections held Oct. 2 was such that it should have rated placement 
on either the September or November ballots. Unfortunately, since 
only 16 per cent of the registered voters made it to the polls, the 
results are not truly representative. 

Case in point is the election of Bradley T. Coates over incumbent 
C. Enrol Hicks, Coates won the election by a 285 vote margin, a 
mere 1.3 per cent. Perhaps the result would have been the same if 
more people voted. But this is not the point. 

The point is that in as important an election as this one was, the 
outcome was decided on the votes of a few. Such a choice is the 
child of apathetic voters. 

We do hope that Dr. Coates becomes a influential force on the 
board. We also hope that Dr. Hicks will continue serving the public 
as well as he has in the past thank him for a job well done over these 
past four years.

Advisor Of f ers Side 


Your "editor's note" on page one of today's 
(September 30) issue is inaccurate, misleading 
and libelous. 

Dolor Ginchereau could not give the results of 
the elections for the senators as he did not have 
the final totals at the time promised. 

The student body has the right to know the . 
results: but, if the final tabulations are not 
available by the time the paper goes to press, it 
would be a disservice to give approximate 

As far as the Beachcomber's "repeated 
attempts to obtain the information", your 
reporter was told to contact the Secretary of 

Elections. He called me at my home Friday 
night, but I did not have the information he 
sought. He was told to contact the Secretary of 
Elections by me; but evidentally he expects news 
items to jump out at him, rather than seek 
information from the correct source. 

Your remark that you have received 
"absolutely no cooperation from SG" is 
inaccurate, irresponsible and immature. You 
owe Mr. Ginchereau an apology; and I suggest 
you assign intelligent, energetic students to your 
reportorial tasks.

Senate Clarifications Noted 


Please accept my congratu- 
lations for your Winter '74 
rating of excellent as well as for 
your efforts to include faculty 

However, in the interest of 
accuracy,' may I call your 
attention to three errors; 

"Senators Concur" - 

I. "effectively prevents 

Vignau from BECOMING chair- 
man" should have been "from 
SUCCEEDING to the chairman- 

2. "four persons were 
nominated" should have been 
"four persons accepted the 
nomination." Mr. Leroy 
Robbins declined the nomina- 
tion as did I. 

"Trustees Select Campus 


Rather than the pension laws 
being discriminatory "to 102 JC 
teachers now under Social 
Security," the law is discrimin- 
atory toward those 102 who are 
NOT on Social Security and who 
may choose to remain on their 
present retuement plans.

Heidfmon Report Criticized 


The complete exoneration of 
Sheriff William Heidtman 
appears to me to be a slap in the 
face of all honest citizens 
everywhere. The investigation 
was glossed over and only a 
partial report was given to the 

The people of the county 
should be given a chance to 
examine the complete record of 
the investigation to determine 
whether or not it (the 

investigation) was handled 

I believe that certain areas 
were treated with kid gloves. 
Too much has been going on 
that hasn't been fully explained. 

One of the majojr goals of the 
citizens of this county should be 
to give Mr. Heidtman some 
opposition when he is up for 
re-election. I . would vote for 
Heidtman if it came between 
him and some unqualified man. 
That shouldn't be the case. 

Admittedly, Heidtman does 
enforce the law. However, the 
way he goes about it and his 
attitude is one that the voters 
should not have to tolerate. His 
insolent behavior towards the 
county commission as well as 
his famous statement, "I don't 
have to tell them (the public) 
what I spend my money on," 
shows that he is better suited to 
be a Claude Kirk crony rather 
than a public official.

Gals Aggressive? 

"J. M/che/eNoffer- 

There are two other tribes of New Guinea who have socialized 
their children into entirely different roles. These tribes display 
what we don't usually consider normal behavior for males and 
females, and they also differ from the passive Arapesh that I 
presented in my last column. One tribe, and all its members, is 
extremely aggressive. In the other tribe, the men are passive and 
the women agressive. 

The Mundugumor people were once cannibals. All members of 
the society are raised in the belief that both men and women are 
violent, aggressive, jealous and independant. 

The children are treated as interlopers, more mouths to feed and 
more competition. They are weaned abruptly and get a minimum 
amount of attention paid to all their needs. 

The females have a slightly less stressful life than the males since 
they are allowed to develop slight fi-iendships with other females. 
This is encouraged because one they they will have to live with their 
husband's other wives. Between the men, however, there is only 
suspicion and constant competition for new wives or mote riches. 

The society I found most interesting was the Tchambuli society. 
It is the exact reverse of our society. The men are violent vain and 
erratic. The women are strong, dominant and aggressive. 

Efficient and unadorned, the women do most of the work in the 
village. They cook, plait and mend their fishing gear. Their activity 
has an air of firm cooperation to it. At dawn, they take out canoes to 
fish, when the temperature rises they return to the village to 
perform other chores. 

In contrast, the men sit in their ceremonial houses all day, 
planning the next feast, doing ceremonial tasks, cutting new thatch 
or plaiting masks for the dances. The men curl their hair, and 
concern themselve almost exclusively with the refinements of their 

The children are given plenty of affection until the age of six or 
seven, the boys and girls have been treated exactly the same. 
However, at this time, the girls are introduced to the 
responsibilities of females. The boys do not start any training in the 
male role but are left on the fringes of their society. In the following 
three or four year period the boys feel a sense of neglect and 
purpose. They become typical Tchambuli men, quick to hurt and 
often become hysterical. 

In the three societies I have mentioned, there are a variety of role 
models for men and women. The people of the Arapesh tribe are 
maternal by our standards, they are cooperative unaggressive and 
responsive to the needs of others. 

In contrast, the Mundugumor men and women are ruthless, 
aggressive and put maternal cherishing at a minimum. The 
Tchambuli society has a complete reversal of our culture with the 
women being the dominant impersonal managing partner and the 
men the less responsible and emotionally dependent persons. 

Next week I will present a study of first through eighth grade 
readers, showing what effects they have in socializing our children 
into stereo-typed male/female roles.

Pisces: Stability marks this week. Events- are fixed in a 

harmonious, familiar pattern that should persist for the greater part 

of October. Don't hesitate to call attention to yourself. 

Aries: You'resensitive to subtle messages. An apparent opponent 

is really on your side, and you take happy advantage of his. Keep 

track of promises made in the past. 

Taurus: Personalplans are likely to be cancelled; better ones will 

take their place. Keep an eye on scholastic work. It Could get 

beyond you. 

Gemini: In an argument you will finally prove something you've 

been contending for weeks. Don't let triumph carry you away, 

though; those who disagree with you are not content. 

Cancer: You are prone to accidents or illness during a short period. 

Take particular care of your body. 

Leo: Those you count on for help seem to have a roundabout way of 

getting things done. Foul play is suspected. Stick to your own ideas 

and opinions. 

Virgo: With several crises out of the way, you look about for 

something new. Be sure that it has some relation to the past. 

Experience in dealing with people will be helpful. 

Libra: A formerly passive person shows signs of becoming 

emotionally involved with you. Success depends on how you handle 

the situation. Encounters with peculiar personalities are foreseen. 

Scorpio: A good deal of flack seems to be coming your way. 

Relations with the opposite sex are subject to strain that may not 

show up until later. Be wary of seemingly attractive offers. 

Sagittarious: Everying is changing. Your reactions should be 

flexible. Deep depression (or great elation) will do you harm and 

should not be indulged in. 

Capricorn: Facing facts is essential this week. You may be seeing 

only what you want to see; this is the basis for some personal 

problems. Don't be afraid to recognize your faults. 

Aquarius: You arejed astray by an authority figure or an influential 

contemporary. The results will not appear for a while, but when 

they do, they will involve money, friends and possibly the law.

Signs Signal Society's Views 

Managing Editor 

If you ride long enough on 
U. S. 75 you're in for a real treat: 

you arrive in Disney World. 
You are, in fact, catapulted from 
the smooth, shiny four-lane 
Brevard County highway right 
into deserted western Mel- 
bourne which is a narrow, 
bumpy, straight two-lane trail 
that poses as a state highway. 
And to further the fun, a few 
dozen huge trucks are coming at 
you. As I tried to make my way 
along Osceola County's path, 
each and every quarter mile 
brought a whole new fleet of 
smoke belching monsters, all 
bearing down on me at full 
speed arid blowing my bicycle 
into the ditch as they reared by. 

It was in this manner that I 
continued my journey, quiver- 
ing every time I approached a 
fleet of truct monsters and 
occasionally looking over my 

shoulder and pack sack to see 
my companions' hair grow 
white. Then I saw the sign. If I 
had been scared before, I was 
terrified. Posted to a tree at the 
side of the road, neatly printed 
in big black letters on white 
signboard, were the prophetic 

"Oh My God," I yelled, "I 
mean, what kind of highway am 
I on?" I immediately pulled off 
the road into an area very 
common on this highway, a cow 
pasture. I then came to a full 
stop, got off and crawled under 
a nearby bush. I lay there 
peering fearfully out at the road 
for almost three hours before I 
realized that the sign didn't 
necessarily have any connect- 
ions with the highway and 
dangerous traffic. It was merely 
a sign put up anonymously by 
some unidentified group that 
merely scared the HELL out of 

Mike's View« 

Voting Essential 

Mike Piliero- 

There are so many things to do in life - why should one have to 
spend time reading and staying up with the news? 

Politics is coming out of every nook and cranny. Even if we 
weren't tired and frustrated with political ploys, there are many 
other reasons that justify one's inattention to the news. 

Like any combination of making a living, keeping up with our 
studies, our boyfriends, girlfriends, children, lovers, shopping, 
jogging, outings and you name it. 

These are essential activities. They are necessary for our well 
being, and they could well consume all our time. 

But, if we wish to seek our own goals, choose our individual ways, 
and make the world liveable for present and future generations then 
we must, what? In 25 words or less. 

We must tackle the neglected responsibility of concerning 
ourselves with the men, women and social events that shape and' 
control our destiny. 

History has exposed the horrible events that take place when a 
country's citizens become unconcerned or lose hope on issues of the 

Can we afford to be unconcerned or just give up? Is America 
strong enough to get by without our voice? That's funny because 
America has gotten by with vote apathy in the past. But that's 
because we have been lucky. Believe me, purely lucky. 

The Romans, at one time, were lucky, too. . .until the fall. 

Enter And Win 

Staff Writer 

. Students are asked to submit 
plans for an entrance way to the 
city of Lake Worth and win 
prizes according to the Lake 
Worth Chamber of Commerce. 
Applicants are to base their, 

design on the contemporary 
Mediterranean architectural 
theme recently adopted by the 

Deadline for entries is 
October 14. First prize is $100. 
Second place winner will receive 
$50 and third place will net $25. 


I didn't think that was fair. 
Youknow, I suppose it's okay to 
clutter up the side of the 
highway with signs and 
billboards advertising one thing 
or another, as long as it's an 
endorsed product. If it's signed 
by some manufacturing com- 
pany or religious organization, 
at least you know it's an 
advertisement and you know 
who is to blame for it. 

But to just put anonymous 
warning out there on the side of 
the highway, and leave them 
without any kind of signature to 
show whether or not the sign is 
an official statement or just 
another ad, is somewhat 

First of all, the American 
people have a right to know who 
is to blame for the various 
slogans strewn all over. That 
way if they disagree with the 
slogan, they can satisfy their 
beliefs and ease their con- 
science by saying, "Spit Wash 
Deodorant can go straight to 
hell!" or something to that 

Then, if people don't like the 
ad, they can get mad at the 
Spit Wash Deodorant Company, 
whereas, if people put signs up 
that just said: DEODORIZE 
STINKERl, then people would 
most likely just get all insulted 
and have no place to vent their 
wrath. Everyone in the world 
would stink and the chairman of 
the board of Spit Wash would 
kill herself. 

Another reason for discou- 
raging unendorsed signs is 
simply this - equal time. If some 
anonymous religious group can 
put up signs saying: PREPARE 
THY GOD!, then atheists 
should have every right to tack 
up signs saying: WHEN 

Also, if we're going to allow 
people to just go around 
irresponsibly putting up signs 
that shake the hell out of you, 
there's no telling what the result 
might be. Could you imagine 
riding down the highway seeing 
a sign of an anonymous 
Democrat saying: MOSCOW 

And there's always the 
oddball political group saying: 

The Florida State Education 
people would leap into the act 
with billboards stating: IF YOU

Hicks Loses -HendrixWins 

JC instructor Dr. C. Errol Hicks, District 4 incumb- 
ent candidate for the school board, was defeated by a 
very small margin last Tuesday by Dr. Bradley Coates. 

Hicks said the loss was a disappointment but he still 
is willing to aid the board in any way possible. Losing 
was "a bitter pill to take because of the small voter 
turnout" according to Hicks, but he accepted his defeat 
very open-mindedly. 

"The problem seemed to be the small turnout." 
Hicks felt if more people had voted it would have been 
to his advantage since he had already served on the 
board for the past four years.' 

After the defeat "you think of all the little things," 
said Hicks. "These are the things that could have 
affected the results." His main problem in 
campiagning was financial. 

Hicks is still a member of the school board for six 
more weeks. Even after his term is ended, Hicks stated 
that he would be more than willing to work on an 
advisory committee to the board, or with them in any 
other way possible. For his remaining time as a 
member of the school board, Hicks would like to see the 
board work towards solving the problem of over 
crowded schools. 

The incumbent candidate for District 2 was Daniel 
Hendrix, also a JC instructor. His reelection was by a 
large margin oyer his opponent. 

According to Hendrix, the results prove that "the 
county has come of'age and they are in tune to the 
youth movement, the brotherhood of man and love for 
one another." 

The main factors for his reelection, according to 
Hendrix, were the record of his past four years on the 

school board, that people had faith in him and worked 
hard for him, and also the endorsements of the 
newspapers. Hendrix also felt that the voters "elect 
people who are farsighted enough to work on 
progressive ideas." 

During his next four years on the school board, 
Hendrix would like to work towards having the . 
curriculum made more relevant in that it should meet 
the needs of all students. He would also like to see the 
Palm Beach County School System become one of the 
best in the country. 

A STUDY OF MANY OF THE Palm Beach County 
Schools and their disciplinary habits will be a very 
important part of Mr. Hendrix's next four years on the 
school board. He feels that better rapport should be 
established between the student and the teacher.

polls, broken-down voting 
machines, and charges between 
the Beachcomber and Student 
Government highlighted a 
chaotic week in which 24 
senatorial candidates reached 
their positions unopposed. 

Senate elections were sche- 
dules for Sept. 23, 24 and 15, 
Machines were to be set up at 
the Busines Patio and outside 
the cafeteria. 

On Friday, Sept, 20^ 
Secretary of Elections Mate J. 
Graham learned that two of the 
26 candidates had withdrawn 
from the race. 

According to Graham, "At 
this time I was unaware that the 
constitution required that an 
election be held each year. 
These new developments (the 
withdrawals) caused me to 
decide that an election was 

Graham said he had conferred 
with several senate candidates 
before making the decision. He 
did not discuss this move in 
detail with SG President Tory 
Buckley, the executive board, or 
the SG advisor, Mr. Arnold 

Later in the weekend high 
executive board officers decided 
to go ahead with the election, 
but were unable to contact 
Graham, so that he (Graham) 
could inform poll workers and 
candidates that the election was 
to be held. 

SG Vice-President Dolor 
Ginchereau, in the abserise of 
Graham, supervised the setting 
up of a voting machine near the 
cafeteria late Monday morning. 

Graham explained that 
"when I got to SG executive 
offices, Buckley asked me to set 
up the remaining voting 
machines. I did' this with the 
help of Mr. (Dave) Drummond, 
(manager) of WRAP." 

Election rules state that if 
there is a time change in the 
voting, "notification of said 
change will be made known at 
the polling booths by poster."

used by the S.G.A. election 

During the elections poll 
workers were cajoling students 
into voting. According to 
political expert Mr. Edwin 
Pugh, a Social Science instruc- 
tor and advisor to JC's Political 
Union club, the cajoling was a 
form of "politicing by suppor- 
ters," which is prohibited by SG 
election rules. 

On several occasions thro- 
ughout the three days and 
nights of voting the polls were 
manned by only one student. 
Beachcomber photographs ver- 
ify that in one instance a poll 
worker was in a voting booth 
without anyone else around to 
man the registration table. 

The poll worker, in this 
instance, could have voted for 
certain candidates again and 
again without being discovered. 


Tuesday, the election mach- 
ine in the Business Patio "broke 
down and we were forced to 
close it down," said Graham. 

No signs were posted to 
inform the students that they 
could vote at a booth near the 

Graham's scratching of the 
withdrawn candidates' names, 
as was shown in a Beachcomber 
photograph last week, should 
not have been allowed, 
according to Pugh. 

Throughout the election, 
students could vote without 
showing JC identification cards. 
Though it is an improbability a 
person not enrolled at JC could 
have voted using the name of a 
JC student. 

The only act one had to 
perform before voting was to 
state his name and the poll 
worker would cross the name off 

Social Science instructor Mr. Edwm 

on the master student list. 

The results of the election did 
not appear in the last issue of 
the Beachcomber, though they 
had been finalized at least one 
day prior to press time, which 
was Thursday night September 

In an effort to obtain the 
results, which were promised 
earlier in the election week by 
Ginchereau, the Beachcomber 
contacted Ginchereau, Buckley 
and Freedman Thursday after- 

Earlier Thursday Ginchereau 
was reminded that the results 
were needed that night. 
However, as of 5 p.m. no action 
had been taken by Ginchereau. 

A Beachcomber reporter 
made several unsuccessful 
attempts to contact Graham by 
phone. The SG Secretary 
Constance Holmes, and Freed-, 
man were also contacted. 

At approximately 10 p.m. 
Thursday, Holmes and Ginc- 
hereau arrived at the Beach- 
comber office. 

Again they were asked for the 
results, but the executive board 
officers explained that Graham 
was the only SG officer having 
the total. 

In the September 30 issue of 
the "Beachcomber" an editor's 
note appeared above the SG

Pugh explained election rules. 

election article ' stating that 
"Ginchereau did not meet his 
obligation" to give over the 
results to the "Beachcomber." 

It should be clarified that 
while Ginchereau stated that he 
would get the results of the 
election, the editor's note stated 
that it was his "obligation." 
The notice should have stated 
only that he agreed to do this. 

Last week, following publi- 
cation of the election article 
"2% Bother to Vote," the 
'Comber received a letter-to- 
the editor from SG Advisor 
Freedman. In response to that 
letter. Beachcomber Editor 
Marc Bressler replied in a 
return letter to Freedman that 
his (Freedman's) letter was "an 
insult and affront to the 
integrity and honesty of my staff 
and editors." 

Tuesday, Freedman asked 
Bressler not to print the letter 
he (Freedman) had written 
because it would serve no 
purpose and would cause a 
breach on the relations between 
the press and S.G. 

However, in a surprise move, 
Freedman discussed these 
matters openly at the regular SG 
Senate meeting Thursday. 

Because Freedman choose to 
air his views publicly, the 
editors felt his letter should be 
used. The letter appears on 
page two of todays issue. 

Another angle to the elections 
that surfaced was that the 
election results received by the 
Beachcomber Friday, Sept. 27 
was the only copy available. 

Had the Beachcomber, in the 
flurry of-a TliurVday press night 
(when the paper is ccrpleted), 
lost the results, officir Student 
Government records may have 
never told of what was surely 
one of the most mismanaged 
elections in SG history.

Now Organized 

Staff Writer 

The Christian Science Organ- 
ization of JC invites you to a 
"helpful, worthwhile exper- 
ience" each Tuesday in room 
TE 22 in an effort to help in 
understanding the Christian 
Scientists way of life. 

The organization, under the 
guidance of Mrs. Marcia Saile 
and Patrick Archer, meets from 
12:30 to 1:00 weekly and follows ' 
the usual Christian Science 
worship format. Beginning with 
a hymn, Bible readings and 
selections from the Christian 
Science textbook, and prayer, 
the service concludes with 
personal testamonials and 
reference healings. 

According to Archer, Christ- 
ian Scientists have no "special 
pipeline to God." 

He explains that even though 
Christian Scientists can prove 
their healings, it is just a matter 
of destroying fear, which is the 
basis of disease. When fear is 
abolished through the realiza- 
tion of truth, the foundation is 
broken down at which time the 
healing takes place. The main 
doctrine of the Christian Science 
religion, therefore, is man, God, 
and their relationship to one 

"The purpose of the 
organization," Archer conclu- 
ded "is also to benefit the

Snow, wind, and casserole. 

Winter's traditional supper 
can become Florida's newest 
attraction on any picnic table. 

Ranch Style Lentil Casserole 
is ideal for picnics because it can 
be made in advance and stored 
in the freezer waiting for any 
occasion in the sun. 

Lentils are high in protein and 
low in fat. They store well, 
especially if kept in a tightly 
closed container where they can 
keep for many months.' Then in 
only 30 minutes, they are 
cooked to tenderness. 

The U.S. Department of 
Agriculture's Marketing Service 
advises to watch for these signs 
of good lentils when buying: 

Lentis should have a bright, 
uniform color, generally green- 
ish-brown. Loss of color 
indicates long storage and lack of 
freshrifess. This doesn't affect 
taste, but means longer 

Lentils should be of uniform 
size, to make an even cooking 


Watch for visible defects like 
foreign material and pinholes 
caused by insect damage. The 
indicates low quality. 

To cook, place two cups of 
lentils in a heavy sauce pan and 
add five cups of cold or warn 
water and two teaspoons of salt. 
Bring to boiling point, reduce 
heat, cover tightly and boil 
gently for 30 minutes. Yield; 
about four cups of cooked

MacLees relied on good 
carbonation and optional ice to 
make the round close. 

With Round Three given to 
McDonald by a Happy Cup 
margin, the final totals showed 
MacLees winning the fight by a 
two to one margin. 

When the fight's outcome 
became official, McDonald's 
boxing manager Big Mac, and 
Ronald's trainer, the Hamburg- 
lar exchanged some harsh 
words. Mac blamed Hamburg- 
lar for resting the meat 10 
minutes before the first round, 
allowing the beef to become cool 
and ineffective. 

"Well then, next time I'll 
steal some meat from the 
cafeteria," the Hamburglar 

Meanwhile, Jay MacLees was 
seen running back to the

because of the win, but because 
a rare night-time customer was 
ready to order something.

hamburgers with everything to

expluned his beliefs and thoughts abont the acting 

Photos By

With a contagious chuckle, Ray Bolger talked of his acting life : 
and reminiscences on Sept. 27 in the JC auditorium. 

"The most wonderful thing in the world is a memory" he stated, ; 
and keeping that in mind, Ray Bolger has given this world a lot of 
wonderful things. . ; 

In his presentation to a standing room only audience, he recited , 
his impressions of "Ray Bolgers' World" an amusing j" 
auto-biographica]-! sketch complete with dancing and singing. | 

Starting as atwo-bit actor in the smallest towns of the U.S. Bolgef |: 
worked his way up to Broadway and then to the movies. He is best s 
remembered for his role as the scarecrow in "The Wizard of Oz". ; 

' 'The Wizard of Oz' ' is an American classic. My mother gave me i 
the books when I was small" remembers Bolger. ; 

He watches the movie every year and feels honored to have 
played a part in a film that will be re-run many years after he is ^ 
gone. "It is profitable for ones' ego to be remembered," Bolget i 
laughed. ! 

In recent years Bolger has been busy performing one-man shows [ 
all over the U.S. and also doing a bit of professional writing. ' 

As an example of this he read a tribute that he wrote for a 
magazine about the late Judy Garland. In simple and toudiitii ; 
terms he spoke of a woman few really knew - a woman full of private ; 
thoughts and emotions she didn't show on stage. 

Bolger is in top physical shape at 70 and can still kick over his } 
head. Demonstrating some soft shoe dancing for the audience, tie : 
stressed his belief that "people my age are not necessarily dead; 
from the feet up." ; 

Although his emphasis is aimed toward activating the oidei- 
generation, Bolger beUeves "There's an optimism for the future. . 
.the young people of today are the important thing." 

At the end of his performance, Bolger drew two standmg ovations 
from the audience. He responded to these by appearing once moK 
on stage and leading the audience in smging his themie song "Once 
In Love With Amy". 

"I'm a performer and I belong to you. My world is your world," 
Bolger concluded. "Ray Bolgers' World" has become a part of out 
world and with no regrets on our part. 

With a dramatic gesture Bolger brings back memories of "April in 
Paris". "It was a fan show to do." he reflected.

performing for up to 45 minutes. 
The group performed with five 
other groups attending last

and were so impressive they 
were asked to return as this 
year's only vocal group to 
perform. Also on the program is 
the University of Miami Brass 

According to Ms. Johnson, 
"It is an interesting thing to 
attend any convention, but it is 
an honor for us to have been

The atmosphere is the late 
forties and setting in the small 
southern farming community is

innocence and opportunity for

Buster is Mr, Everything in 
high school and has his pick of 
the girls. Buster and any local 
beautiful hard to get socially 
acceptable girl seem to make 
the perfect couple. But Buster 
feels something is lacking. 

The new girl in town is Billie. 
She is quiet, shy and poor. Her 
home life is tumultous at best. 
She lacks a formal education. 
These problems leave her with a 
grim outlook on life. To 
complicate matters, a gang of 
drunken classmates lias "group 
sex", in the loosest form of the 
word, every now and then with 
her. Apparently this is her only

Manor's announcement came

year, the $11 figure was arrived 

The changes will be noticed 
by students with all size class 
loads. Those who carry 18 
hours, for example, are now- 
paying $129.50. Under the new 
regulation, the cost will rise to 
$198. Part-time students will 
benefit from this change, Night 
students taking a four hour 
credit course are now paying a 
fee of .$72. Under the new 
system, this would be reduced 
to $44, a substantial decrease. 

Manor anticipates a reduction 
in monies available for the 
budget next year, and attributes 
it to part-time students. Having 
more part-time students than

revenue, but Manor figures that 
unemployment will cause en- 
rollment to increase. 

Manor made it clear that the 
$11 rate was not an effort on the 
part of the college to go after 
more money.

Activity Fee Funds To Be Slashed 

Villian: New Tuitions 


JC President Harold C.

Glynn Explains Activity Fee Committee 

Staff Writer 

The Student Activity Fee Committee is responsible for 
determining the amount of money to be allotted to each activity on 
campus. The money is taken from the Student Activity Fee which 
students pay at the beginning of each term. 

"The committee is student controlled," explained Paul J. Glynn, 
Dean of Student Personnel. "It is composed of all the faculty 
advisors that head the individual activities which draw from each 
agency. Student Government supplies additional personnel," he 

Activities which' draw from the fees include athletics. Galleon, 
Beachcomber, Intramural and Recreatiptial BoardAssemblies, and 

Executive Board 

the Student Government Association. 

The committee follows no definite procedure. However, it is 
established that, a representative from each activity comes before 
the board and states the amount of money that organization needs. 
He must explain the plans for the money and justify the 

' The committee evaluates the requests and checks what each 
activity did with the money allotted to them the year before. 

"I'm hoping to see more variety of activities at JC," stated 
Glynn. "I think students want more activities. They are denied 
much in high school. SO has been working for more faculty 
involvement in activities on campus," he added. 

Manor met with the Student 
Activities Fee Committee last 
week and told them of his 
recommendations. The college 
president will recommend that 
up to $1 of the $11 fee charged 
per credit hour go to the activity 
funds, in the Fall of 1975. But 
this will leave the funds much 
below last year. 

He noted that the college 
expects a reduction in the 
monies available for the fund 
due to the new rate. 

"No other school has the 
amount of money we have for 
student activities," Manor 
stated to representatives of the 
board. He noted that financial 
belts may have to be tightened, 
or possible activities cancelled, 
and asked members of the 
committee ' 'to take a second 
look" at what they had planned, 

, Manor said that he felt that, 
in the past, funds may have 
been given carte blanche. 
"Whether there was a need for 
it or not, we may have allocated 
it," said Manor. 

While stressing that there 
was "no reason to change the 
basic way to set budgets", he 
stated that each budget will be 
carefully scrutinized for un- 
necessary items.

Welfare And 

JC Do Not 

Mix Well 


News Editor 

Alice, a divorced JC student with two children to 

support is fed up. The problem is that welfare provides 

no extra assistance for students and she has decided to 

do something about it. 

About two weeks ago, Alice placed posters around 
campus which stated: 

"Is trying to better your education almost impossible 
because of the hassles with bill collectors or welfare 

"Are you fed up? 

"Well I am! 

"We need to get together and talk and see if we can 
change things," 

Wednesday night October 2 Alice and three other 
"fed up" students met in the Science Conference 
Room. On one point they agreed unanimously: welfare 
workers "don't care what you are doing to better 
yourself. ' ' 

Alice is not like many welfare mothers who sit around 
waiting for their checks each month. Instead, she is 
interested in bettering herself by obtaining a Basic 
Educatinal Opportunity Grant (BEOG) to further her 

However, despite a statement in writing, from the 
state director of Health, Education and Welfare that 
said the BEOG money was not to be counted as 
incoming funds, Alice's welfare check was reduced 
because of the BEOG grant. 

Alice cannot reveal her real name to the 
Beachcomber. . .she's afraid that if this story is read by 
welfare people her checks will be reduced. 

EDITOR'S NOTE: The next meeting of Alice's 
organization is Tuesday, Oct. 29, 8 p.m. hi the Science 
10-A Conference Room.

County's VD Rate 
Upsets JC Student 

News Editor 
Palm Beach County's vener- 
eal disease rate is increasing, 
according to Mr. Keith Ring, 
Regional Consultant for VD 
Control in Florida. 

Over 3,000 cases of veneral 
disease have been reported in 
Palm Beach County this year. 
While gonorrhea is increasing 
slightly above last year's pace,

syphillis cases in 1974 ranks far 
ahead of the early October rate

One JC student actively 
concerned is Paul Friedman. 
He has been a siurgical and 
emergency room technician m 
New York City and Palm Bech 
County for the last two years. 

Friedman, 19, has been in 
hospital work since he was 16, 

and has been concerned about 
the rapid VD increase, which he 
believes has reached pandemic 
proportions . 

"This is of great interest to 
me," commented Friedman, 
"because with the vast amount 
of diseases man has to combat, 
there is no excuse for the 
current VD situation, 

' 'Countless millions of dollars 
are being spend in the 
treatment of VD. Medical men 
know the reasons and have

majority of the people don't take

Boca High Project 
Goes Up In Smoke 

Smoke gets in your eyes? It probably does for students who 
attempt to make use of lavatories facilities at county high schools. 
Bathrooms have long since ceased to be effective for their intended 
purpose, since it is virtually neirt to impossible to find a stall in 
dense smoke clouds. 

The majority of high and junior high school students who smoke 
cigarettes and other forms of tobacco do so in secondary school 
bathrooms. Long gone are the days when mischievious student hid 
under the football bleachers to take a few puffs of their Winstons. 

While recognizing the dangers ©f smoking, we feel that it is about 
time that designated smokuig lounges be created at county high 
schools. This question came before the Palm Beach County School 
Board in the form of a pUot project to be studied. The board denied 
the proposal, which was to allow for a student smoking area at Boca 
Raton ffigh School, by a three to three vote. Arthur Bougae, Ted 
Brown and Daniel Hendrix voted against it. C. Errol Hicks, Bernard 
Kimmel and Ann 'McKay voted for it. John Kirby was absent. 

Citing vandalism and hypocrisy, Superintendent Joseph Carroll 
favored the plan which would allow the students to smoke outdoors. 
The program would have been evaluated at the end of the school 

Though there are certain legal questions, a pilot program like the 
one proposed would seem like a proper way for the board to begin 
making changes. This question should be brought up again. 
Smoking is for places other than lavatories. We all know what 
lavatories are for: skipping class. 

Campaign $$pending 

A few weeks ago a Beachcomber editorial stated an unwritten law 
concerning public campaigns; "Have plenty of funds or you'll 
never win an election." After a check of several candidates' 
campaign spending, this was proven true. The biggest spender 
wins almost ever time. 

Dr. C. Errol Hicks, JC instructor and candidate in the October 1 
School Board elections, stated that his opponent's big spending 
worried him. As it turned out, his opponent and final winner. Dr. 
Bradley T. Coates spent six times as much on his campaign as Hicks 
spent on his. 

The other School Board incumbent facing opposition, JC 
instructor DanUe Hendrix, won reelection. But he also spent six 
times as much on his campaign as did his opponent, Mrs. Claire 

In other area elections the victor was almost always the biggest 
spender. Fortunately, all records of campaign spending are easily 
accessible to.the public. They are filed in the Clerk of Courts office 
in the Palm Beach County Courthouse. 

Can a middle-class citizen be elected? Dr. Neal Justin, FAU 
instructor and candidate for the U.S. Senate in the September 27 
primary, campaigned as a "middle American." The bulk of his 
campiagn funds came from his own pocket. He finished way back in 
a field of 11 candidates with a disapointing vote total. 

So, the question is again raised as to the importance of campiagn 
funds. As the November 5 election approaches and candidates step 
up campaigns, let's hope the money factor will not have an 
influential effect. A voter's best advice is still to compare and

WRAP Gets Letters Too ! 


A few days ago, we received 
in our mailbox (which is located 
in the SAC lounge, next to SG 
offices) seven letters, each 
flowing with literary eloquence 
and loaded with unbounded 
criticism towards WRAP and its- 

Judging from the type of 
paper and the wording of the 
letters, we assume they were all 
from the same cafeteria table (or 
else they had all used the same 
thesaurus),, but that does 'not 
change otle important fact. 
There ARE people out there 
who have their differences with 
our programming, style and 
delivery. Hence, this open 

In order to clear the air about 
our situation, let us state some 
facts about our present 
capabilities. First, the volume. 
Frankly, sometimes we goof, 
and program the volujne at a 
level slightly too high for the 
number of people in the 
cafeteria at that moment. But 
mostly, the problem seems to be 
distortion. Distortion is fuzzy, 
unclearly delineated sound, 
which admittedly can be most 

We at WRAP are in the 
process of purchasing and/or 
repairing four additional ampli- 
fiers at this time. And, 
investigation is taking place on 
the replacement of half the 
speakers in the cafeteria ceiling. 
This should go a good way 
toward our producing a crisp, 
clear, audible sound for both 
music and speech. 

Secondly, the music pro- 
gramming. One of the 
aforementioned letters supplied 

a lengthy list of major 
performers with an admonition, 
"Why don't you play more of 
THESE people? Then, maybe 
your station wouldn't - - -that 

Intrigued, we compared the 
supplies list with our own 
playlist, and found that we 
owned and played music by 
about 90%of the groups they 
had submitted. We are also in 
the process of ordering more 
records to update our library, 
and are very open to 

Personally, we feel that this 
year has brought the widest 
spectrum of musical styles and 
tastes to WRAP than it has ever 
had. According to the deejay 
doing the show, music ranging 
from soul to jazz, country, pop 
and progressive has and will 

continue to be played. 

Finally, let us add that while 
your comments are quite 
welcome, we would prefer that 
your criticism be intelligently 
and constructively phrased. We 
have been called every name in 
the book (and a few that we 
haven't been able to find 
anywhere else) , and they have 
long since ceased to stimulate 
and excite us. Be clear, concise, 
and please SUGGEST: don't 
just tear down. 

We believe vye are performing 
a valuable service to the 
students of PBJC, and, with 
your help, we will continue to do 
a better job of it. 

Thank you, 

The Management and 

Staff of WRAP

Middle Class Loses 

President Ford proposed Tuesday a five per cent surcharge on 
income taxes. This surcharge will affect the American family whose 
gross income is over $15,000. ■,,„„+ us+ 

It seems to me that the middle class American family will get hit 
the hardest. The reason is the high class American family has tax 
write-offs. This five per cent surcharge will increase their tax 
write-offs having little or no effect. r -i- a 

I think that the majority of middle class American families needs 

all the money it can get. n -j ^ ir„,.^ 

Inflation has grown in tremendous proportions. President Fold 

should decrease financial foreign aid, instead of slashing the throats 

of middleclass Americans. Haven t these Americans suffered 

enough from the act of the Republicans? 

Democrat administrations may have been responsible tor 
bringing war but, they have brought us out of depressions or 
financial ruts. Republican administrations have been responsible 
for Dullina us out of war, and for causing financial chaos. 

I think that the Republicans are going to further their tradition 
and will be unable to correct our financial problems. The question 
should be asked, what can this country do for you as well as what 
you can uo lor your country. ^^^^ ^^^^^

51 Percent- 

Texts Biased 


During the last two weeks I have discussed three New Guinea 
tribes and how they shape their children into the roles they consider 
normal for males and females. 

An interesting booklet, "Dick and Jane as Victims", describes all 
the elementary textbooks in three suburban New Jersey towns. 
There were 134 elementary readers analyzed. These were used to 
teach children from the first to eighth grades. The Book.<; were 
published by 11 different publishers and, although the geograpliic 
area they were used in is small, I believe it is safe to assume that the 
stereotypes presented to the children are prevalent throughout 
; readers across the country. 
; Some quotes from the readers are as follows: 
: "Johnny says girls aren't fan. Janey said she wants to be a 
doctor but she knows girls cannot be doctors so she will be a nurse. 
Dick says he will be an engineer. Sally says she will be a mommy. 
Dick says girls are stupid. Janey says she might be ONLY a girl but 
she isn't stupid at all." 

Typical girls in any reader are frilly little things with a smile on 
their faces and a passive attitude toward life. The books are 
portrayed in the readers as having a stern look of concentration; 
they are busy preparing to be men. 
From the 134 books, some startling ratios were found: 
Boy centered stories to girl 5:2 
Adult male main characters to female 3:1 
Male biographies to female 2:1 
Male animal to female 2:1 
Male folk or fantasy stories to female 4:1 
Women in non-biographical stories were portrayin in 25 different 
occupations while men participated in 147 different jobs. 

Among the active mastery themes are creativity, ingenuity, 
bravery, perserverance, achievement, curiosity, sportsmanship, 
autonomy and self-respect. These are usually regarded in this 
society as positive and desuable. Males are given these attributes 
in the stories at a ratio of 4:1. 

Adult women mainly teach cookie bakmg and dirt chasing. It is 
the men - fathers, school masters, older brothers and boys who, 3:1 
encourage others to learn the things they have mastered. The 
highest praise any girl can expect, in the stories, is that she 
performed "like a boy." 

Boys are shown how to grow up and be men, not fathers. Girls 
are shown how to grow up and be mothers. The readers often 
suggest that boys are considered demeaned by association with 
girls. Boys struggle with right and wrong, old women steal the gold 
the boys have found! 

However, the girls do excel in some things - like passivity, 
incompetence and fearfulness. The girls win hands down in 119 
stories to the boys' 19. Girls rehearse domestic roles continuously, 
166 times to the boys' 50. A girl's inborn attitude for drudgery is 
presented in the same spirit as a black person's "natural rhythm." 
Under the category of victimizing and humiliating the opposite 
sex and excessive agression, the girls win again, 67 to 2, as the 
passive victims of this treatment. 

■ Under the category of biographies, there are 119 stories about 88 
men and 27 stories about 17 women. 

An examination of one, on Amelia Earhart, produces the first 
sentence of the story: "Amelia was always different." It is left to 
the reader's imagination and deductive abilities to figure out that 
Amelia is considered a freak and that's why she made it and who 
wants to be thought of as a freak? So I guess I'd better not use her 
as a role model! 

Absent from the readers are fathers and mothers backing their 
children's quest for selfhood. Ignored are one-parent families, 
adopted children, divorced and/or fighting parents. Boys are 
muhi-dimensional, no such example or comparable attempt is made 
for girls. 

Next week I will draw some conclusions from the articles I have 
presented in the last three weeks.

oldest pleasure in the world - join the JC Sailmg Club. 

The club is meeting Tuesday, Oct. 15, (tomorrow) at noon in the 
North SAC lounge. 

The club, whose advisor is Dr. James Miles, has approximately 
20 members. "More members are needed to enable the club to get 
a sailboat," stated Joe Fitzgerald a club member. 

"In the past we have had to rent sailboats," he added, "and 
because there is no place near the campus that rents boats, this 
involves extensive traveling."

courses here at JC. Since 1 am, 
how you say, prolific, in that 
subject, there is no reason, no 
how, to have to go through all 
that baloney. 

Dis here English, I be 
learning since way back in 
kindergarten when I first started 
school. All through elementary 
school I was taught never to use 
no "double negatives", or 
employ fancy words that I didn't 
understand, or use what they 
call run-on ' sentences. Or 
sentence fragments. 

I excelled in all of dis stuff. 
You understand what I'm 
talking to you about? My teach 
also taught me that I can't (or 
shouldn't) use a lot of 
contractions. And I don't. I be 
one of the bestest kids in the 
class, not the worstest, in amy 
cents of the word. 

When I gets to high school, I 
got all I needed to know about 
dis simple tudd, ya know, so 1 
only had to take what they 
called, "Basic English". No 
sweat, man. Easy as pie in the 
sky and I was high - no lie. 

I would have dug taking 
something like "Introduction to 
Sex", "Advanced Gum 

Chewing", or "Problems of 
Organic Chemistry with Calcu- 

lus in relation to early man in 
Africa." That's ajoke,ya know. 

Really, I be wondering to 
myslef, I was, "What good is 
college English gonna do to 

Let me examine it as such: 

Is college English gonna 
teach me how to whisper "sweet 
nothings" to my chick? Huh, I 
ask you? She don't understand 
half of what I say no ways, so 
how's she gonna know what 
" antidisestablishmentarianism 
means? She just probably 
thinks it's some new kind of hair 
spray. 1 give her a copy of. 
Beachcomber, and she goes, 
"Where the funnies at? 
Ain'tche got no funnies?" 

Is college English gonna help 
me be a chef? That's what I do, 
by the way. I don't hafta know 
how to spell bernaise sauce to 
make it, ya know. I can tell da 
difference between a steak and 
a meatball. Da steak has da 

bone in it. 

College English ain't gonna 
help me go into my own 
business. Well, maybe, I could 
have a little problem keeping 
business records. It's hard as 
hell to file alphabet blocks, 

Will college English help me 
enjoy life? Not a bit. I know 
how to party; whiskey is dark, 
vodka is clear, and beer has 
foam. I don't need no lessons on 
how to make babies. (Speaking 
of double negatives, I get a lot of 
them when' I asks my chick to 
sleep with me. She says 
somethin' about "missing her 
period", and I jus'say, "Why 
don't you ijse an exclamation 
point?" ' 

So, have I; proved my point? 
Is college English gonna help 
me late in life? No! It's a total 
waste. It's not gonna help me 
no way, no how. So there! I'm 
gonna go get balony! Look that 
up in your Funk and Wagnell^s.

Science Club Launches Trip 

Canoers Creep Up The Creek 


Staff Writer 

With paddle and canoe in 
hand, many Science Club 
members felt like a Davy 
Crocket come alive last Saturday 
morning on their first field trip 
of the term. 

Members living south of the 
canoe area met bright and early 
that morning at school to follow 
the. load of Girl Scout canoes to 
the beginning of the run in 
Jupiter, Florida. Arriving about 
9:00 a.m. they met the northern 
members with their Boy Scout 

After a few warnings about small 
alligators and water moccasins 

The J.C. Science Club 
lannched its first trip 
last weekend when they 
went on a canoe trip.

Science Club advisor,

got into their difficult

arose as these members 
tried to get their canoe 
off the bank. It was one 
of those days. . .

Today printing, publishing, 
and packaging, put together, 
make up the nation's third 
largest industry. 

Yet, without the creative and 
industrial artist and designer, 
this universal industry would be 
reduced to nothing. 

Those eyecatching illustrat- 
ions we see in advertisements, 
displays, TV commercials, 
movie cartoons, design labels 
for containers, and color designs 
for greeting cards, are all 
produced by the commercial and 
graphic artist or illustrator. 

Many JC students who have 
successfully completed their two 
year A.A. degree iif commercial 
and graphic arts have organized 
and/or instituted their own 
employment throughout the 
state of Florida. 

According to Dr. James 
Miles, head of JC's art 
department, a student holding 
the A.A. degree in graphic and 

commercial arts has every bit 
the potential of success in the 
field as a student with further 
educational training - providing 
with the two year degree he 
possesses the key to artistic 
talent - creative ability. 

According to Miles, "The 
artist's success depends on his 
power to conceive ideas and 
project them in graphic form, 
and his ability to get along well 
with others; to relate to 
humanism through visual com- 
munication." This was the 
philosophy or guideime along 
which Miles felt the art student 
should work. 

Today, average salaries for 
the A.A. degree student of art, 
with 3 to 6 years experience, 
according to Dr. Miles, ranges 
from $9,000 to $15,000 annually, 
(approximately S6 per hour) 

Opportunities for advance- 
ment are excellent for those 
with talent and ambition . 
Currently the field is over- 
crowded with poorly trained 

persons whose work is sub- 
standard, thus enhancing 
chances for promotion among 
well qualified workers. 

Employment for the com- 
mercial or graphic artist may be 
found with any organization 
which has a publicity, advertis- 
ing or art department. Other 
opportunities may be found with 
publishers, newspapers, com- 
mercial printers, advertising 
agencies, studios of design and 
commercial arft. public relation 
firms, department stores, textile 
firms, some specialty stores, 
display comp.anies, television 
stations, mail order bourse, 
large radio stations, calendar 
publishers, research foundat- 
ions, motion picture studios, 
and architectural firms.

from Mr. Richard Gross, the J 
canoers carried their canoes j 
through an over-grown pasture = 
to get to the water. One by one, j 
the canoes slid into the water ; 
and off downstream. i 

Despite a few empty beer ; 
cans and bottles, the surround- f 
ings gave the impression of i 
being an unexplored territory. 
Many types of trees intertwined ; 
above the water, oreating a ; 
feeling of isolation and peace, ; 
although at times civilization 
was not far away. 

Many species of plant life ; 
seen in the lab by biology 
students were recognized in the j 
natural habhat. And there were ' 
a few encounters with creatures 
of the wild, to quoteoiifipersoii, 
"There sure are a lot of i 
spiders". Another student, ; 
veering too quickly to one side, 
realized that the water was "i 
bit too chilly for swimming". 
The first 14 miles was virgin 
territory, and at times, it was a 
tight squeeze to fit the canoes 
through the narrow passage' 
ways. Everyone got the chance 
to get their feet wet wlien 
climbing over fallen trees that 
often prevented smooth ■sailing. 
The beauty of the country was 
apparent. According to Gross, 
"It is the last remaining natural 
wild-type river." Because of 
this, the county is working \a

calmness of the water opened 
up into the wilder waters of the

much hope for the inexperien- 
ced. To quit paddling meant the 
possibility of being pushed bad 
many feet. One paddler calje;! 
out, "I can't remember a tiiR:

X-Ray Technologists 

Sharon YunuS' 

Under the general term "radiologic technologist" comes three 
distinct subtopics. 

The diagnostic radiologic technologist is the person thatmost of us 
see when we have done potential traumatic injury to our bodies. 
These persons work basically in the radiology or X-ray departments 
of hospitals. They make up the backbone of the R.T.'s. 

The nuclear medicine technologist is a soecialist in working with 
isotopes. This person may be a diagnostic radiologic technologist 
with added training or he may be a holder of a Bachelor or Science 
degree with one additional year of specialized training. His duty is 
to inject patients with radioactive material for images that aid in 

The third category belongs to the radiation therapy technologist. 
These persons are held responsible for the administering of 
potentially lethal amounts of radiation as prescribed by the 
radiologist specializing in therapy. 

Not written into the duties of these persons, but implied, is the 
morale of these cancer-bearing patients. 

Each of these titles requires a minimum of two' years of training, 
passing of the national board exam and, if wishing to specialize, 
additional training and passing of the national specialty board 

The benefits of this profession extend further than the naked eye 
sees at first glance. The field of medicine is constantly expanding 
and with the imminence of a national health plan, more and more 
specialists in the allied health field will be needed. 

The starting pay for an x-ray technologist is from $8,000 tyo 
$10,000 and up, Couple the salary with the constant availability of 
openings and you may agree that this is an area worth looking into.

Talking about his movie-to-be, Mr. Francis Leahy of the JC drama 

department describes his "dream come true." 

Movie On The Make 


Staff Writer 

Frank Leahy, JC Speech and 
Drama instructor will be 
fulfilling his lifetime ambition 
when be begins production on 
his personal screenplay in Palm 
Beach next summer. 

"The Eighth Daffodil" is a 
heart warming drama written by 
Leahy in collaboration with two 
of his former students, Nick 
Bougis and J. Alton Murphy. 

The mutli-leveled, feature 
length film involves the "lonely, 
desperate struggles" of Honey, 
a young showgirl tormented 
daily by her constant attempts 
to hide her illegitimate, 
five-year old son firom the 
glamorous night club world she 
inliabits and Patrick, with 
whom she becomes passionately 
involved. The movie evolves 
around the theme of two 
separate worlds being torn 
between the revelations of flesh 
and the spirit, 

"This project is something 
I've always wanted to do", 
expressed Leahy, "but couldn't 
have or take the time. I.had the 
idea for the script some time 
ago. Finally, the three of us got 
together and comoleted it last 


Leahy, with over 20 years 
experience, will be directing the 
film. Bougis is in charge of the 
script, and Murphy, completing 
his Masters degree is filmmak- 
ing at the University of Georgia, 
will be the chief cinematogra^ 

The filming takes the 
characters into the backgrounds 
and locations of the glamorous 
Palm Beach island; into the 
squalor of the migrant farms 
and other locations varying from 
North Carolina to New York 

Although he has an optimistic 
outlook, the main obstacle, 
according to Leahy, is trying to 
find interested parties to invest 
in the film, budgeted at 

"We're trying to keep the 
total at the minimum," 
explained Leahy. "$160,000 is 
very low for an independent 
project such as this one. Most 
of us will not be taking salaries, 
and the actors will all be 
unknowns. The financial 
outlook for investing in anything 
right now is not great, but we 
are hopeful, through, and won't 
begin until we have the total

Mr. Ray Stewart, JC's nursing instructor and a Registered Nurse, talks about the pros and cons of 
being a male nurse.

Staff Writer 

Aside from sex, the only 
differences between male and 
female nurses today are their 
uniforms and an approximate 
sixteen cent per hour pay 
differentiation, according to Mr. 
Ray Stewart, J.C, instrtuctor 
and Registered Nurse. 

Responding to questions 
concerning discrimination and 
female opposition, Mr. Stewart 
pointed out that although male 
nurses were not commonplace^ 
m the late 40' s when he began 
his studies, the institution fi-om 
which he received his diploma 
was prepared to meet the 

"I don't think I've really had 
any trouble as far as my choice 
of professions," Stewart noted, 
"I obtained ray degree by way 
of a three-year program at 
Worster City Hopsital in 
Massachusetts, which was 
geared to male nurses. 
Although we were in the 
minority, there were more and 
more men going into the field all 
the time, and the female nurses 
responded very well." 

Mr. Stewart, who began 
teaching at JC at the start of the 
Fall term, has also taught at 
School of Practical Nursing at 
Massachusetts General Hospi- 
tal. He's received both his 
Bachelor of Science and Masters 
degrees in Nursing, and is 
presently a doctoral candidate in 
Health Education at Boston

Screen tests will begin late in 
November, and 'the filming is 
scheduled to start in the early 
1975, with the main portion 
being shot in the spring and 
early summer. 

"Later on, there will be 
chances for people who wish to 
be in the movie to sign up," 
Leahy added. "We feel it is 
better to use unknown person- 
alities because the public can 
better identify with them." 

The next step, after the film is 
produced, is to get a prominent 
agent to distribute the material, 

"We're all set to begm", 
concluded Leahy. "Now, if 
there are any rich students at JC 
who wish to invest $25,000." 

Northwestern University in 
Boston and the Shepard Gill 

His active experience include 
private duty nursing, Red Cross 
and ambulance work, and 
industrial supervision. 

Stewart states, "Being a 
doctor is something I've never 
really wanted to do. Despite 
some beliefs, a male nurse is not 
a person that couldn't make it to 
medical school. I always 
enjoyed the nursing profession 
much more. There were two 
reasons for me deciding on my 


career." he stated. "First, my 
orderly in high school when I 
first heard the term "male 
nurse" used, and I thought it 
was a joke. At the time, I 
couldn't really afford medical 
school and I was very weak in 
chemistry. Besides, nursing 
seemed much more fulfilling to 
me. What I really like is the 
parents were shop people and I 
promised niyslef early in fife 
that I would find a job where I 
would always be in demand and 
not have to worry about being

If you are ready to see a 
young unknown actor surprise 
moviegoers with an award 
winning performance; then 
prepare yourself for Richard 
Dreyfuss in the "Apprentice- 
ship of Duddy Kravitz." 

You may remember Dreyfuss 
from "American Graffiti". His 
performance was exceptional to 
say the least. Unfortunately It 
brought him only limited 

Duddy Kravitz is entirely a 
different character to Dreyfuss 
than the high school sidekick he 
portrayed in "American Graf- 
fiti." Dreyfuss's expressions 
must go deeper than those of a 
stereotyped superficial charac- 
ter. As Duddy Dreyfuss is 
perfect. He can fill you with 
Duddys same driving ambition. 
It'sl948, Duddy, a Jew, lives 
in the Jewish ghetto of 
Montreal. He is fresh out of 
high school, poor, young and 
sets his ambitions on being "a 
somebody." His righ uncle 
supports his brother through 
medical school but doesn't give 
Duddy a dime. Duddy's father 
is poor, widowed and a beer 
drinking cab driver. Duddy 
feels these facts hold him 
drastically back from achieving 
his goals. He can feel only 
contempt for these people. 
Who, then, can Duddy turn to? 
There is Mr. Farber, a scrap 
iron dealer, who gives Duddy all 

kinds of unorthodox business 
advice. Also Duddy's life long 
idol, Dingleman, who started 
from the streets and scratched 
his way up to a big time 
racketeer . Duddy will listen to 
all of them but when it comes to 
getting the job done he does his 
own kind of thing. 

Duddy is obsessed with 
ambition. He'll do nearly 
anything for a quick buck. He 
will charm anyone who will do 
him a favor until he gets what he 
wants. When Duddy sets his 
sights on a goal he becomes a 
ruthless hard driving fanatic. 
He steps on people like the 
rungs on a latter in his climb to 
success. What he fails to realize 
is that people cannot be used 
like objects. 
The encounters Duddy goes 

through for a quick buck are 
intriguing. Topped off with his 
brainstorm, making movies of 
weddings and bar mitzvasj with 
his first movie 'Happy Bar 
Mitzva Bernie." 

The story is not satirical a 
particular ethnic group nor does 
it criticize any particular 
institution of system. It's 
merely the story of a man with a 
boal and the situations his 
ambitious drives create. It 
illustrates that people should 
not be treated like objects. 

The filming and directing are 
all A-1 and the acting and 
script is even better. The 
supporting actors are cast 
equally as well as Dreyfuss. 
The combination resuUs in a 
well made entertaining film

Pacers To Face Ranked Teams 


The Pacers open their 
1974-75 basketball season on 
November 20 at home against 
the Palm Beach Atlantic Junior 
Varisty for the second straight 

With a 21-7 record last year, 
the team hopes to be playing its 
28th game in the finals of the 
state tournament again this 

In addition to having the same 
number of games, the schedule 
after Jan. 9, with a straight run 

of 14 conference games, looks 
very much the same as a year 

There are significant dif- 
ferences, however, primarily 
before Christmas. 

Last year there were 10 
individual games and one 
tournament before Jan. 9, but in 
this year's schedule, there are 
only five individual games and 
three tournaments, 

"It's getting a lot harder to 
find teams who want to play 
us," says Dr. Howard Reynolds, 

On The Run 

Sports Editor 

Rodney Stride was a long distance runner with one short-coming - 
he couldn't see where he was going. 

Stride compiled a record of 37 consecutive second place finishes 
m his cross country career at Hasty Lopings Community Colleae in 
Spnntbrug, Mass. 

"I never won a race because I always had to follow the shadow of 
the runner in front of me," explained Stride. 

Being a nearsighted runner can cause a number of problems. 

"One time I was running a race when the shadow of a tree 
crossed my path," said Stride. "I ran in place for seven minutes 
before I realized what was going on." 

On another occasion Stide had to drop out of a race because the 
sun went behind a cloud. 

"The sun wasn't out anymore so I didn't know which of the 
shadows I was supposed to be following," said Stride. 

Stride was always disagreeing with officials. 

"One time I was thrown out of a meet because I kep running into 
pine trees," said Stride. "The official and 1 just couldn't see eye to 

During another race Stride was disqualified for running on the 
heels of the man in front of him. His explanation for this error was 
that he didn't want to let the runner out of his sight. 

"One time I thought I was running into the finish chute of a meet 
in a suburban area," said Stride. "Then some old lady started 
chasing me with a broom and telling me not to trample on her 

After all these frustrations, Stride was finally given a pair of 
glasses by his sympathetic coach and teammates. 

"When I got the glasses and saw how far I had to run," said 
Stride. "I decided to give up the sport."

Some people 
say it takes a computer brain to 
play chess. This may be so, 
because Terry Wilkerson pro- 
grams computers and plays the 
ancient sport. 

Wilkerson began going to JC 
as a dually enrolled student 
from Forest Hill high school, 
and hopes to complete the 
requirements for a certificate in 
computer technology by the end 
of this term. 

Terry is also directing the 
chess club, one of the clubs on 
campus which lacks faculty 

"We have 15 people officially 
playing for the club," said 
Wilkerson, "But there are 
several students who come into 
our room for an occasional 

One of the functions Wilker- 
son is carrying out is the 
establishment of a rating system 
to judge the quality of the 

"Were using the same 
system of ratings that was used 
last year," SAID Wilkerson. 
"The system awards points to 
the winners and takes pomts 
away from the lowers depending 
on how good the individual 
players are." 

The system awards each new 
player a total of 700 points and 
add points if they win, subtracts 
points if they lose and gives the 
lower rated player points if the 
two draw. 

"I'd like to see a lot more 
people out for the chess club," 
said Wilkerson. "The system 
works better if you have more 
people participating in it." 

Wilkerson learned the game 
of chess from his father and was 
playing evenly against him by 
age 15. 

"We started a chess club 
when I was a sophomore at 
Forest Hill," said Wilkerson. 
"We didn't start competing 
until I was a junior." 
In his junior year, Wilkerson 

and teammates won the Palm 
Beach County Championship for 
high schools. 

Another problem faced by the 
chess club is the lack of a faculty

Don was set to attend school, he had his fall schedule, his fees 
paid, and had committed himself to not competing in cross country, 
but cross country coach Dick Melear had other ideas. 

"CoachMelear called me up and said that he could use me up 
here at Palm Beach. He told me that he was trying to put together a 
team that would finish in the top of the State meet," said Don, "so, 
later, I decided to come up here and run." 

Of coach Melear, Edgar comments, "He's a good coach, 
everybody likes him, except at practices, where he's very

Disabled Students Fight Obstacles 

Staff Writer 

Physically disabled students find obstacles in their 
paths the moment they enter JC, according to Miss 
Helen V. Diedrich, counselor. Financial difficulties have 
been the primary barrier. 

Students conflned to wheelchairs face the greatest 
difficulties. Ramps are needed at some areas on campus, 
and thresholds to rooms are too high. Heavy doors, such 
as those in the Humanities Building, cause additional 

Since no elevators are in the Social Science, 
Humanities, and Technical buildings, disabled students 

cannot attend classes upstairs. Elevators are enormously 
expensive, so the only alternative is to bring the class 

"A physically disabled student cannot easily be in an 
art program at JC," explains Miss Diedrich. "There is 
no way to bring a class downstairs when the equipment is 
built upstairs," 

Miss Diedrich has been working hard at meeting 
federal guidelines which were developed to make 
colleges accessible to disabled students. 

These students cannot use telephone booths at JC, and 
few water fountains are within their reach. According to 

federal guidelines, science laboratories with 24 or more 
stations should have at least one handicapped station. 
Miss Diedrich is also trying to meet federal guideUnes for 
adequate sanitary facilities for disabled students. 

"Those with an inability to write need other students 
to take notes for them, or they may bring a tape recorder 
to class with the permission of the instructor," said Miss 
Diedrich. "Arrangements for taking tests should be 
made at the teacher's discretion." 

Some accomodations are made for disabled students at 
JC. Handicapped parking is provided. Schedules are 
arranged by counselors so that the disabled student's 
classes are close together.

Trustees Approve SG Fee Plan 

News Editor 

JC Board of Trustees approved a major 
revision to the fee-tuition structure Wednesday. 
Beginning in the Fall Term, 1975, students are to 
pay fees at a rate of $11 per credit hour. 

The Board's ruling eliminates the present fee 
policy, which charges students on a three hour 
graduating scale, with no fees for more than 12 
credit hours. 

Of more interest to students and faculty 
present at Wednesday's board meeting was 
debate over the distribution of student activity 
fees from the monies collected under the new 
fee- tuition structure. 

The board rejected a proposal from JC 
President Dr. Harold C. Manor in. favor of a 
Student Government plan hitroduced by SG 
President Tory Buckley. 

Under the new activity fee plan, one dollar, 
from the Sll per credit hour, is to be put into the 
activity fee fund. 

Monies from the activity fee fund will continue 
to be allocated by the Student Activity Fee 
Committee, which is headed by Dean of Student 
Personnel Paul J. Glynn. 

Additionally, under the Buckley plan, any 
funds from an organization left over at the end of 
a school year are to stay in that organization's 
budget for the next school year. 

Manor's proposal varied from the one 
submitted by SG on two major points: 

1) Manor proposed that the activity-fee rate be 
"not more than" one dollar; thus the JC 
president, in some years, could set a figure less 
than the dollar rate. 

2) Manor wanted all the funds that were left 
over at the end of the school year to revert back to 
the general fund. 

Buckley's proposal was motioned for by Ms. 
Susan Anstead, wh*o felt tfie Manor plan gave the 
president too much of a free hand in determining 
the activity fee level. 

Ms. Susan Anstead.. .supports SG 

Trustees M. C. Hamblin, Dr. R. L. Smith, and 
Ms. Anstead approved the proposal, while board 
chairman Dr. Edward Eissey and Mrs. Homer 
Hand abstained. 

Following the vote, a jubilent Buckley told 
reporters, "A victory was scored for all 

"The question was whether we would have a 
set figure to give to student activities each year or 
whether it was going to fluctuate back and forth 
all the time," said Buckley. 

"What the board did," commented SG's 
president, "was approve the set figure and 
stipulate that leftover funds stay in the budget." 

After the meeting Manor criticised the second 
part of Buckley's recommendation, which dealt 
with leftover organization budgets. The JC 
president stated that since the extra monies could 
not be allocated to the general fund, "the 
students might as well spend it anyway." 

In other actions, the board; 

•Designated official names tor JC and its- 
subsidiaries as follows: Palm Beach Junior 
College North, PBJC South, PBJC Glades, and 
,PBJC Central (main campus). 

•Appointed present Biology Department 
instructor John Schmiederer to Chairman of 
Division of Allied Health, effective January 2, 
1975 - June 30, 1975.

SG Execs Consider 

Monday, October 21, 1974 B'eACHCOMOER - 3 


Staff Writer 

Student Government's Exec- 
utive Board ' considered the 
Sailing Club's request for funds 
to purchase a Sunfish Sailboat 
and discussed plans for the 
upcoming concerts in November 
and January, at the October 15 
Board meeting. 

If the Sailing Qub purchases 
a b«at, it would be possible to 
offer sailing as a credited 
course fay the P.E. Department 
witWn a year, according to 
Howard M. Reynolds, Athletic 

The boat, which has a 10 year 
life expentancy and costs $425 • 
$575, would be maintained by 
the P.E. Department. 

The purchase of a boat would 
eventually save money because 

the rental of boats if very 
expensive. In addition, the 
Sailing Club has had difficulties 
renting boats. 

Several nniversitles and 
junior colleges, inclndktg Miami 
Dade Community College, are 
offering Sailing as a credited 

"Such a course would be a 
tremendous addition to our 
curriculum and would be of 
great student interest," com- 
mented Reynolds. 

A sailing class can not be held 
with only one boat. The 
ultimate goal is 10 boats, a 
trailer, 20 lifejackets and 20 

As a means for aquiring 
boats, a green stamp drive was 
suggested by Roy E. Bell, 
Health and P.E. teacher and 


Torrenfiol Traffic 


Q. I am worried about the traffic problem here at JC. What's the 

A - PBJC, like any other institution which is still in the initial 
stages of development, is experiencing one of the negative aspects 
of growth; traffic problems. For example. Congress Avenue is 
bemg envisioned by some people as a dangerous highway; this 
assumption is not without justification, because a motorcyclist was 
seriously injured along Congress in front of PBJC. 

Entering the campus from Congress is a problem that was tackled 
by traffic engineers of Palm Beach County. Consequently, the 
traffic light at the Congress Avenue entrance to the school is a 
demand traffic light which will allow as many as 14 cars to make left 
turns providedc they are not spaced too far apart. 
^u^^ ^ discussion with Secnri^ Chief Grant Bartels, I learned 
that PBJC has 2,000 paved parking spaces plus additonal space 
provided by the shellrock bedding at the northeast end of the 

Also a recent survey by Bartels' staff shows that "PBJC has on 
theaverage 2,000 cars during day classes; this ranges from a low of 
1700 to a high of 2500." 

During the upcoming weeks I will continue to look into, update 
and comment on this problem which inconviences many students. 1

member of the Intramural and 
Recreational Board. 

"A sailing class would greatly 
contribute to water safety in this 
area," said Bell, "With our 
natural facility the boats could 
be used every day," he added. 
The Board is accepting bids, 
hoping for a price break on a 
boat, and is to await the 
outcome of the bidding before 
reaching a decision on whether 
to buy a boat. The Sailing Club 
was allotted $100 for their 
weekend sailing trips. 

Dean Bursey, manager of the 
rock group Dusenberry was 
present at the Board meeting. 
He proposed a $300 "package 
deal" for Dusenberry's perfor- 
mance at the November Day 
Concert and a backup perfor- 
mance at the January Concert. 

Tony Banks, Secretary of 
Productions, favors Stone Harp 
for both concerts. Stone Harp 
has offered to do both concerts 
for $250. In addition, one of the 
group's members is willing to 
do silkscreen advertisements for 
the concerts. Banks stressed 
the fact that advertishig will be 
the biggest problem. 

* 'Dusenberry does original 
songs," argued Bursey, "while 
Stone Harp is a copy band. 
Dusenberry is a budding group

Rivalry Ends 

Unions Merge 


Asst. News Editor 

The Florida Education Association and the American Federal!- 
of Teachers have merged to form the United Community Coil;: 
Faculty of Florida (UCCFF). Alan Maxwell, a science instructor i 
JC and John McGinnis of Tallahassee Community College we- 
named as co-chairpersons. 

The merger of the two organizations has put to an end their [oti 
rivalry at Florida's 28 community colleges. A reemitment drive lu 
already started to bring all 8,000 faculty members of the stole- 
community coUeges mto the one organization. 

In a joint statement, Maxwell and McGinnis said the UCCFF *> 
formed to coordinate faculty activities; create a political adk' 
program, provide staff assistance and training, and assist in i 
phases of collective bargaining. 

"Our new organization will be able to promote the kinds : 
educationl programs that was the students and taxpayers of ffi- 
state desire and deserve," said Maxwell. 

"Until now," McGinnis added, "faculty members at Floridi'i 
community colleges were separated from campus to campus ssi 
were unable to coordinate programs and activities through a singe 
state organiztion. But with FEA and AFT cooperation, our voice 
will finally be heard." 

The new organization will be affiliated with both the FEA and ll 
AFT; but current members may choose to belong to either or bff.l 

JC Debaters Win

JC s Debate Team came out with winners against some of it:* 
leading colleges, junior colleges and universities from Florida. 
Georgia, Mississippi and Alabama, in the three day novice-debate 
tournament held in Deland on Friday, October 11. 

Students who comprised the teams from JC were: ' James CleaK 
and Diane Cosner; Augustin Hernandez and Bill Lesley Sue Ket: 
and Robert Roberts. 

JC teams defeated Miami Dade North, St. John's CommunllJ 
CoUege, Meridian CoUege, Mississippi, and Mercer Univcrsil.r 
Georgia. They tied University of Florida's "B" team. Tfaf'i 
resolved topic was "what powers of the Presidency should b<

Many resolved topics made by debaters have later beer 
legislated. Onegoodexampleofthis would be Medicare which wii 
argued widely by debating teams long before it became law.

Of the 250 patrons attempting 
to use the machines, only 219

the thirty-one non-deliveries, 
only fifteen had their money

obtaining only partial refunds.

This time, he deposited his

those machines, including 
foreign coins, slugs, pennies, 
and flip-tops from cans. Also

were stocked and checked daily,

had to ride with both the

if you expect it to function

Grants Necessary 
For Improvement 

In years past, JC athletic teams rarely provoked excessive worry 
in opposing teams or their coaches. But now, JC teams have upped 
their records and in some sports, have been ranked among the 
state's best. 

This success is largely due to an upgraded athletic program; a 
program which includes some outstanding athletes on athletic 
scholarships to JC. 

Without these grants-in-aid, many of these athletes would not 
have been attracted to JC. The grants cover tuition, books, and 
sometimes the athletic department will also help an athlete with his 
room and board. 

Of course, better athletes mean better teams. And, unlike many 
scholarships svhich are based on student need, these grants-in-aid 
are given because the student himself is "needed". (Presently, 
only men are receiving athletic grants although women will in the 
near future.) 

Talented students in other fields such as music, drama, 
journalism, art, et cetera, are also needed for continued 
improvement at JC in those department. Could it be possible to also 
provide grants-in-aid for these students? 

Scholarships are available to students in these fields, but they are 
given only through organizations or individuals. Athletic 
grants-in-aid are funded mamly through the Student Activity fee (a 
certain amount of money is budgeted to the coach of each sport who 
may spend it on needed equipment or scholarships). 

It's also part of a coach's job to go and recruit athletes in an effort 
to improve his program. 

Although production of the Beachcomber is also funded through 
the activity fee, the improvement of JC's journalism program could 
be made possible if the newspaper advisor could go and recruit 

>ssible editors and staff members? 
Vouldn't it improve the drama department if speech and drama 
:hers ' could recruit talented students? Or, if some other 
lartment's instructors could recruit outstanding students in their 
ds, offering them scholarships? Most of these students will not 
e part in such activities because of job obligations. 

It's obvious that without athletic grants-in-aid, JC's athletic 
fogram would not boast the athletes participating in it now. 

It's also evident that other department programs here would 
benefit if grants-in-aid help could possibly be given to their students 
as well as athletes. 

Nevs/^ Schools Needed

startling prediction was made by School Supt. Joseph 

who also said that student enrollment will almost double by 

With several county schools overcrowded, and many others on

Voice Of Administration? 

Dear Editor: 

Your paper claims to be "The 
Voice of the Palm Beach Junior 
College Student," but one look 
at the story "Activity Fees To 
Be Slashed" leads me to 
conclude that you are acting as 
the voice of the college 

In the story, you report that 
JC President Harold C. Manor 
intends to recommend a system 
of collecting student activity 
fees which will result in a 
reduction of funds available for 
student activities. 

That's fme. But do you report 
anything else? No. From the 
lily-white appearance you gave, 
nobody objects to these funds 
being "slashed." If anyone 

objected, you couldn't tell by 
reading your story; its entire 
content was, "Manor said. 
Manor said, Manor said." 

Dr. Manor is not the only one 
who is supposed to have input in 
this matter. The meeting you 
covered was of the STUDENT 
Activity Fee Comihittee, which 
you noted in your story. The 
purpose of this committee is to 
give the students a strong voice 
in the financing of their 
activities. Dr. Manor came into 
the meeting and proposed a 
reduction in activity fees in an 
amount he was to determine. 
Are we to believe there was no 
student opposition? 

If you think that Dr. Harold C. 
Manor is so powerful that his 

word is the only word worth 
printing on student activity fees, 
then you are still laboring under 
the delusion that he "voluntar- 
ily" stepped down as Faculty 
Senate Chairman. 

We students deserve a 
complete, objective appraisal of 
the internal politics of this 
college especially when such 
matters can influence our 
academic lives. We do not want 
institutional public relations. 

Wiring news stories is more 
than just getting quotes out of 
the horse's mouth. You have to- 
walk around to the other end to 
see if it smells. 

Chances are it will.

Rapped: 'Comber & WRAP 


The .article last week 
concerning the Synchronization 
of the Campus clocks seemed to 
leave out some important facts: 

i. The Authors of the 
Resolution were Glynne Hughes 
and Rob Abrams. 

2. These two senators put in 
many hours investigating the 
clock situation. 

3. They also had some 
valuable and pertinent infor- 
mation, which they presented at 
the senate meeting, concerning 
the clocks. 

After talking to the apparent 
author of the article, it was 
found that his original article 
had been edited to exclude 
these two concerned senators. 

Senators who expend their 
energies for the common good 
of all students deserve recogni- 
tion and should not be left out 
under any circumstances. 

Tory S. Buckley 

Dear Editor: 

I wish to make the students of 
this campus aware of the fact 
that WRAP does not have 
balanced programming. JC 
students might enjoy other 
types of music. In particular, 
I'm speaking about such 
popular singers as Perry Como, 
Frank Sinatra, Robert Goulet, 
and my personal favorite, Bing 

There are some students who 
enjoy Country music, with 
singers like Mel Tillis, Webb 
Pierce, Dolly Parton, and 
Tammy Wynette. Many JC 
students also like Jazz. I would 
recommend that WRAP'S sta- 
tion manager consider such jazz 
greats as Coleman Hawkins, 
Sidney Bechet, and of course, 
Louis Armstrong. 

In summary, to be fair to all 
JC students, WRAP should play 
all types of music, and being an 
amateur musicologist, I would 
be glad to be an advisor to 
WRAP should they wisely 
decide to expand their pro-

Coniorming Role 

J. Michele Notter- 

In recent articles I have shown that children can be made to 
conform to any role that a culture desires. In any society, this 
jjressure to conform to one role or the other, without consideration 
of an individual's personality, is damaging to both sexes equally. 

In a report given to the Amerian Psychological Association in 
September 1970 by the Association of Women Psychologists, my 
point was stated more professionally. "Psychological oppression in 
the form of sex role socialization clearly conveys to girls from the 
earliest ages that their nature is to be submissive, servile, and 
repressed, and their role is to be servant, admirer, sex object and 
martyr. . .the psychological consequences of goal depression in 
young women, the negative self-image, emotional dependence, 
drugged or alcoholic escape are all too common. 

"In addition, both men and women have come to realize the 
effects on men of their type of sex role stereo-typing the crippling 
pressure to compete, to achieve, to produce, to stifle emotion, 
sensitivity and gentleness, all taking their toll in psychic and 
physical traumas." 

Many suggestions can be made to change current society, but a 
step in the right direction is a re-evaluation of the roles presented to 
children via their readers, elimination of the sole use of the male 
personal pronoun to mean male and female, the additional 
requirement that males and that females be represented in 
curricula, books and other institutional materials in a variety of 
roles. The elimination of criteria requiring or permitting sex 
stereo-typing, sex segregated classes and other differential 
treatment between the sexes. 

The treatment by teachers and counselors of expectation that are 
stereo-typed; as in the tracking practices which tend to encourage 
and place boys in advanced sections of math and science and girls in 
the sections of office practice should be eradicated. 

In this society, we stretch our sons to fill the ideal dominant male 
role and fragment our daughter's personalities to make them fit the 
servile female role. Both processes do violence to the individual. 
Each damaged person depletes the resources of the whole society. 
A culture can be built so that each individual can attain her or his 
full human status with acceptance of passive or agressive males or

Mr. White Knight 

The subject in class was 
inflation and what to do about it. 
Walter raised his hand and 
suggested a strong president 
could help solve our present 

A bit puzzled by the 
statement, young Dr. Yinger 
(Social Science teacher) politely 
disagreed, saying a President 
shouldn't hold excessive power. 
However, Walter meant that the 
president should be strong in 
leadership and thus capable of 
solving our problems a la 
Franklin D. Roosevelt, 

Everybody agreed. Inflation 
could be licked in this manner. 
Pondering a little longer on the 
subject, however, I've reached a 
point of, uncertainty over 
whether a U.S-. president should 
or should notbe modeled as the 
romantic "White Knight". 

Is this notion, in fact, 
dangerous? Haven't we learned 
that "White Knights" are 
manufactured and rarely bom? 
If we regard our president with 
an awe relegated the gods, will 
he be, or become, prone to 
avoiding congressional advice al 
a Richard (he's the one) Nixon? 

Public relations departments 
have worked miracles. At great 
public expense, they have taken 
the sneaky and dishonest, and 
made super-heroes out of them. 
That is, until the true colors 

•Mike's View — 


If we, the public, accept this 
"White Knight" theory, we 
have two problems: how to 
unsaddle a reluctant "White 
Knight" when it becomes 
necessary (doing this in time to 
prevent damage) and then, how 
to make the public understand 
that one man rule is too 
dangerous even for a "White 

Congress is feeling its oats for 
the first time in many years. Its 
weight is finally registering in 
the minds of our elected 
representatives now. All this is 
possible through the fall, and 
consequential absence, of the 
"White Knight". 

President Gerald Ford thus 
far hasn't shown any pretense at 
being great. On the contrary, 
he appears to be humble in 
seeking advice and keeping his 
ears tuned to public opinion. 
Ironically, his moves, so far, are 
controversal to the point where 
he is losing his popularity. But, 
I am not ready to condemn. 

The nation's turmoil can be 
solved without a "White 
Knight" this time. We have the 
available brain power to solve 
all problems under the shining 
sun. And we are the power, you 
and me and the democratic

Tammi Tunabopper sat ner- 
vously in class, her platform 
shoes crossed underneath her. 
Her long blond hair, bleached to 
ten different shades, cascaded 
over her shoulders, and flirted 
with her cheeks. Eyelashes 
straight out of a nearby 
drugstore, fluttered ever so 
often, in a somewhat sexy 

A single string of hair, this 
one light blond, occasionally fell 
out of place, covering her left 
eye and causing her to blink. 
She would brush it back without 
a thought, like she had done to 
so many suitors. 

Class was a bore to her; there 
were^o mapy other things to do; 
gossip, smoie cigarettes in the . 
bathroom, exchange pleasant- 
ries and barbs with girlfriends, 
and "do her face" again. Oh, 
and maybe, just maybe now, 
catch a glimpse of that new 
transfer student. He's so, 
so-ohhh, unreal, UNREAL! she 

The bell rang, jarring her out 
of her "Gee, I have a crush" 
stupor, and sent her speeding for 

the door. 

She glided across the room, her 
bopper body swaying this way 
and that. She looked like a 
conglomeration of bargain 
basement sales with a dab of 
Pierre of France thrown in. 

She burst into the hall, not 
unlike a bolt of lightning, but 
more a stifled burp. And then, 
ohmigod, ohmigod, there HE 
was! Mr. Wonderful, every- 
thing I always wanted in a MAN 
was standing there, all of him, 
and I'm here too, oh, isn't it just 
like I've . always dreamed it 
would be, she thought. 

The man, dark, tall, and 
handsome, stood, rather tower- 
ed above her, like a God unto his 
worshipper. She began to 
stammer out her best form of 
greeting, attempting to appear 
very suave and sophisticated. 
she blurted out. 

"What are you saying," he 

That voice! That mouth! 
Those lips! My heart! 

"Umaumaumaumauma, " 
she continued, still attempting 
to formulate a "hello" or "hi" 
Dr something. 

He frowned at her, and said, 
"Well, been nice talking to you. 
Have to be going." He walked 
on down the hall to parts 

Her heart still racing, she 
thought, oh, what ever am I to 
do, I know he's the ojie I've 
been waiting for. 

AAarcBressler — 

She danced merrily down the 
hall in a state of total glee, like 
sands through an hourglass, so 
are the days of our lives.

OAA Donates Cultural Library 


The Black Service Organizat- 
ion of Afro American Affairs 
(OAA) has donated a library on 
Black culture and its contribut- 
ions to our society. 

Adviser Dr. Samuel Bottoso 
stresssed the psychological view 
about blacks and whites. He 
stated, "the culture between 
blacks and whites is generally 
the same." This library 
stresses the cultural way of 

blacks. Many whites have 
suffered under the same 
conditions as blacks, however 
their experiences of life were 
different. Inventions and great 
contributions are part of black 

"The library has a case 
divided into three sections," 
Advisor Miss Jacqueline -Rouse 
pointed out. "In the first 
section there are maps of Africa 
and its free and independent 
countries. The second section is

"The flags colors have 
meaning," Miss Rouse contin- 
ued." The black represents 
Black people, the green means 
land needed for home base or 
'Mother Country' and the red 
stands for the blacks that shed 
their blood and died for freedom 
in this world. Members of OAA 
last year donated their Own 
plaque, whicb sets in the middle 
of the case, 

Miss Rouse stated that the 
flag represents the blacks' 
awareness movement. In our 
society brought about in the 
1920's, Marcus Garvey a native 
of Jamaica, founded the 
Universal Improvement Assoc- 
iation and African Cornmunities 
(Imperial) League. Garvey, a 
leader of the 1900's established 
the flag in the 20' s, she 
emphasized. "The blacks 
weren't aware of this movement 
until the 1960's. 

Students Miss Rouse teaches 
Afro American have many 
opportunities to view the 
library IN Room 83. Dr. 
Brottoso stated "the library is 
available for all interested 
students. Students that -wish to 
check out books may do so with 
Miss Rouse in the Social Science

FAU's ''Day" Successful 

Photo by Winnie Knighton 

Virginia Kelly demonstrates the acupuncture treatment by 
inserting a needle in her ear. She says varied treatments can 
control drinking, smoking and eating problems. 

Acupuncture Praised 


Virginia Kelly, who has been studying at PBJC part-time since 
1965, has nothing but praise for acupuncture - the needle piercing 
practice of -the ancient Chinese that has become popular in the 
United States. This student had been suffering from back injuries 
sustained in auto accident several years ago, when she saw Merv 
Griffin undergo the needle treatment successfully for headache on 
his talk show. 

After about six months of studying the various aspects of this 
method of therapy, her first treatment was arranged. It 
immediately controlled the pain in her lower lumbar region, 
although major spinal surgery had not accomplished this. Now she 
can relax without complete bed rest. 

Virginia now takes the treatments every two or three weeks from 
Dr. Robert Liem, Lake Worth, who is a native of a small island near 
the Phillipines, where they type of treatment is widely used. It 
actually originated in China about 3,000 years ago. It is. very 
imperative to have a thorough physical examination before starting 
acupuncture, as it could be dangerous with certain illnesses. 

Some treatments are painful and some are not. This depends on 
where the needles are inserted and if there is any infection. An 
extra incentive for some users of the needle is the staple-like 
permanent fixture placed inside the ear that can control such habits 
as drinking, smoking or eating. This student also had staples 
inserted in her ears, and has lost about three pounds each week 
and smoking has been curtailed to a large extent. This treatment 
has also been very successful in the rehabilitation of drug addicts. 
The iniection connects with the acuouncture avenues of the body. 

Each session lasts about 30 minutes, and sometimes thei school 
effects last for weeks. 



Many students from PBJC 
and other surrounding com- 
munity colleges received a 
warm welcome when they 
arrived on Florida Atlantic 
University campus Thursday, 
October 10. This was their day, 
and to prove it, booths were set 
up in University Center and 
many student organizations 
were on hand to give 

There. was free ice cream and 
the FAU Jazz Band played rock 
on the Leviathan outdoor stage.

Instructor, took his entire class 
to this affair. Each student was 
invited to visit the division of his

of JC campus. There the new 
concept is emphasized. 
University Center has game and 
recreation areas, meeting 
rooms, headquarters for Stu- 
dent Government, a publication 
center for the student newspa-

literary magazine. It also 
houses the snack bar, bookstore 
and Rathskeller, where you may 
"tip a few" while watching the 
Dolphins on color television. 

In addition to the Snack Bar 
which is in the University 
Center, full course meals are 
served in the Cafeteria with or 
without a meal plan. Several 
meal plans are available, 
however, for those students who 
need them. 

.The University residence 

halls are air conditioned and 
arranged in suite-like living

U.S. shuns Metric Conversion 


Feature Editor 

"It's two kilometers from 
here - you can't miss it." an 
Englishman would reply if 
asked for directions. Nowadays 
an American would simply 
shake his head at this, continue 
on his way, and completely miss 
his destination. 

'Kilometers, liters, grams, 
centimeters, decimeters, milli- 
meters, meters, METERS, 
METERS! The world is going to 
meters - literally. 

The U.S. is the last major 
country to still be using the 
miles, yards, and pounds 
measuring system. However, 
experts predict that will soon 

Already more . and more 
.American companies measure 
things in the universal metric 

system and this tends to make 
merchanise repairing tougher 
for U.S. repairmen. 

To keep up with this change, 
the demand for knowledge of 
the metric system is growing. 
People want to learn their liters 
and grams. 

The major argument for the 
adoption of the metric system is 
that all measuring is based on 
tens. This makes transferring 
from one amount to another a lot 
easier on the brain. 

The major argument against 
adopting the metric system is 
that it's going to be hard to 
convert from our former ways. 

We want to keep our nice, 
comfortable measuring system. 
However, once over this bridge, 
the rest of the way will be a lot 
■ liter, I mean lighter. 

So get out your meter sticks, 
throw away your yards and 
pounds, and measure like crazy. 

Remember, one gram is equal 
to .0022846 of a lb., one meter is 
equal to 39.37 inches, one liter 
is equal to 1.0567 qts. . .

Nurse LEGS In Action 

LEGS is a four-letter word. 

Nursing students swore that it was one of the worst programs 

they had ever encountered, until they became more familiar with it. 

LEGS (Learning Experience Guide for Students) began in 

confusion early this term. Instructors and students alike say they 

were hazy as to how the independent study program would work. 

In this program, the student learns at his own pace. Filmstrips, 
tapes, and books are available, and "participation in discussion 
groups are encouraged. 

The LEGS program puts the student directly into the hopsital 
where study of class-to-patient situations may be applied. The 
beginner is also allowed to become accustomed to hospital 
atmosphere and get acquainted with the staff. 

Another advantage of this program is that it allows students with 
previous training as aides or orderlies to go beyond the class to 
more advanced skills. Also the slower student may take more time 
on particular problems, thus accomplishing a better understanding 
of it. 

A poll taken last week reveals that now most participants favor 
LEGS over the regular class They are also more aware of the 
material made available to tliem - particularly the campus lab. 

The poll indicates that 95% of the students consider their 
instructors to be outgoing and helpful; only SVi disagree.

AAovie Review- 

Burt Coaches Cons 

•John Auchterlonie- 

Specific movies have specific 
themes; some are dramas, some 
are comedies and some have 
good dialogue or excitement. 
Whatever the case may be, no 
one said that these were 
essential elements to make a 
good, entertaining movie. All 
that is required is something 
that appeals to the audience. 
With that we have the "Longest 

The story ' takes place in a 
prison, the subject is football 
and Burt Reynolds is the star. 
With his quick one liners this 
combination points towards bold 
humor; some are cliches, some 
are crude, but all are done in 
good taste. 

Burt stars as a former pro 
quarterback who hasn't played 
football in eight years because 
he was caught shaving points. 
He steals his girlfriend's car 
providing us with a quick action 
packed chase scene. Then, as 
he rests ata bar, he adds insult 

to injury by using unnecessary 
roughness on the arresting 

When Burt meets his fellow 
prisoners he observes some 
"real cases," as they observe 
him. Here, he learns that the 
warden (Eddie Albert) is a 
football fanatic. He wants 
Reynolds to coach his semi-pro 
football team comprised of 
prison guards, but Burt ends up 
forming a team from the 

The Internal and external 
conflicts come to a climax when 
Burt's Mean Machine meets the 
guards in a pre-season tune-up 

The "Longest Yard" won't 
overwhelm you from a literary 
standpoint but it will entertain 

The script does not call for 
any in-depth characterization; 
the information about Reynolds 
as, Paul Crew, "Superstar," is 
provided in the first few opening 

scenes. Burt's conflict is that, 
"he's always had his 'stuff' 
together but never could lift it." 
Albert is simply obsessed with 
winning., These conflicts are 
resolved in the climactic football 
game at tlie end of the movie. 

What makes the "Longest 
Yard' ' successful? Proximity 
and tactful low-centered hum^ 
or. Burt Reynolds holds the 
distinction of being the male sex 
symbol from Palm Beach 
County and a former JC 
student, as well. The movie is 
written around him, using his 
classic expressions and satirical 

We can also relate to the 
movie with its location. The 
script calls for the story to be in 
a Florida prison and the chase 
scene to held in Palm Beach. 
Although the script didn't 
change, filming took place in 
Atlanta and Alabama. 

In the prison, Reynolds 
observes the dregs of humanity. 

'Burt Reynolds in his younger days at JC, where he began his acting 

some of these characters are 
extremely funny. Next, we have 
the situation of rounding up a 
football team - comprised of 
inmates and teaching them how 
to play. Now, lets put this all 
together in a football game; 
Burt's classical retorts, a bunch 
of characters running around on 
a football field and slapstick

outlandish plays. The setting of 
a prison and a football team 
provides every opportunity for 
humor, while Reynolds alone is 
enough to provide the interest

Staff Writer 

The highly evolved artistic 
music of Weather Report is of a 
very wide range and therefore 
impossible to place into any 
single category. 

The album opens with ten and 
a half liiinutes of very heavy, 
constantly moving, funky rhy- 
thm created by two drummers, 
Ishmael Wilburn and Skip 
Hadden; Afro-Latin percuss- 
ionist Don Um Romao; and the 
rest of the band. This exciting 
song, "Nubian Sundance" 
typifies traditional tight Weat- 
her Report funk. 

The second cut, "American 
Tango", is a slow, mellow, 
beautiful song with the melody 
being established by synthesi- 
zer then backed up and 
improvised on by Wayne 
Shorter on tenor sax. 

"Cucumber Slumber" is the 
album's best selection and 
features the extraordinary 
fantastic double bass work of 
Alphonso Johnson and Miioslav 
Vitous, a jazzy, tasteful electric 
piano solo by Josef Sawinul and 
the wailing sax of Shorter. 

The title number, "Myster- 
ious Traveller", is very 
musically involved and full of 
complicated rhythms and time 
changes. The piano takes the 
"Mysterious" theme of the 
song while the other insttu- 
ments "travel" for about seven 
minutes - and its really a trip. 

"Scarlet Woman", "Black- 
thorn Rose", and "Jungle 
Book" are other numbers on the 

"Mysterious Traveller" is 
definitely an album for the 
up-to-date music listener. 

The music of Weather Report 
is not easy to forecast eitlier. 

New Lights Instolled 

Entertainment Editor 

With the installation of the "Electronic 
Lighting Control System", the theater 
department has the majority of the facilities in 
the auditorium upgraded. 

The new lighting system is being installed and 
assembled by Herb Schmoll, President of Design 
Line, Inc. of Tampa. Schmoll said the three 
phase, 300 ampere system compares to 
controlling about 900 one-hundred watt light 

He went on to say that it has about "the same 
amount of power as used on controlling ten 
houses." The 30 dimmer system is "about as 
up-to-date as any school's in the state." 

The "Electronic Lighting Control System" is 
basically similiar to the equipment at Walt 
Disney World near Orlando. Design Line, Inc, 
has several lighting systems in operation in the 
■'Magic Kingdom", with the most recent 
installed at the Frontier Saloon in the 

"Art (Musto) bought the second dimmer board 

1 ever sold," said Schmoll, refering to the initial 
purchase by the college. 

His company this year has done a healthy 
quarter of a million worth of business. 

This JC purchase is part of a five year plan to 
update the auditorium's technical department. 
When completed, Schmoll said, the entire 
installation of the new equipment would be 
approximately $15,000. 

■ Art Musto, technical director of the theater, 
commented, "before we were running lights on a 
wing and a prayer. This professional system is 
adding a new dimension to the theater program. 

"it gives the students an opportunity to 
operate sophisticated equipment." 

He also stated that the system makes the 
operation much smoother. "The new lighting 
system greatly improves the safety standards of 
the Auditorium.," 

The light board is not ready to be placed in 
operation, but the rest of the lights should be 
functioning the opening night of "The Sign in 
Signey Brustein's Window", Nov. 7, two weeks 
from Thursday.

Frankly Speaking- 

What Is A Commercial 

Television is full of commer- 
cials, while commercials are full 
of. . .well, whatever it takes to 
fill up a commercial. 

Some of them contain 
psychological phrases intended 
to make one think that he is the 
only one not using a particular 

"You've all heard the 
phrases, "The car they'll all be 
driving" "The movie everyone 
is seeing." "The book, or look, 
everyone's reading or wearing" 
And they work! If I hadn't seen 
the "exorcist", read "Jonathan 
Livingston Seagull", or bought 
a pair of platform shoes, I'd 
really feel left out. (economics 
allow me an excuse for not 

owning a '74 Porsche)! 

These salesmen are really 
clever, as evidenced by the 
great advertising line, "Coca' 
Cola is Coke!" 

One shaving cream company's 
commercial has the best line 
I've heard in a long time on 
television. A shaved face is a 
kissable one, imploring the 
listener to "Turn your face into 
a kisser!" 

Back to the psychological 
aspects, we have the implication 
that to buy any care but a 
Chevrolet is to be un-American, 
why? "Chevrolet makes sense 
for America!" they tell us. The 
rest of the companies don't 
make sense even theough they 
have better ideas. (Actually I 
don't think that Ford makes 

■-Frank Smith — 

much sense for America either, 
but that's getting political.) 

Then, there's the little things 
that bug me about commercials; 
the fact that 7- up can think of 
nothing better to say about it's 
produee than that it's not a cola! 

The way an airline says that 
they'ir'move their tails for me" 
but say nothing about moving 

Or another airline who's 
stewardess says, "Hi, I'm

Play Set Readied 

Staff Writer 

Many hours and hard work 
are being put into the set 
construction for "The Sign in 
Sidney Brustein's Window" the 
drama department's presenta- 
tion Nov. 7-11, and the 14th. 

The setting for "Window" is 
a typical Greenwich Village 
apartment which consists of a 
Bohemian atmosphere and a 
sort of artistic air. 

According to Mr. Art Musto, 
technical director of the play, 
the first step in construction is 
to analyze, the play and 
determine the requirements for 
the action to take place. Also 

taken into consideration is the 
environment needed to set the 

Furthermore, the budget is 
evaluated to see what funds are 
available to spend on props. All 
money comes from the revenue 
of box office sales. A ground 
plan is then sketched to lay out 
the position of the props. 

The construction began five 
weeks ago with the students 
from stage craft and cast 
members working two nights 
per week and every afternoon. 

After the final production, the 
crew begins the task of tearing 
down the set and storing the 
reuseable material for future 

Future Features 

By Flick Magermm^ 


Pisces; Machines and appliances cause trouble. Your car 

could refuse to start; your waterbed might spring a leak. 

Chemicals^ have a profounder effect than usual. 

Aries: Of prime importance is trying to understand other 

people and giving them the benefit of the doubt. Don't let 

frustrations make you lose your temper - they're not worth the 


Taurus: This week has a gray, drab aspect. Everything you 

try to start fizzles. Money could help - work toward getting 

some. Financial aspect is favorable. 

Gemini: New styles, thoughts, appreciations surround you. 

Closeness is highlighted; the more worth you see in someone, 

the more there is to see. 

Cancer: You seem awkward. The taste of your foot in your 

mouth is becoming familiar. Don't give up - this will pass. 

Watch your step, literally. 

Leo! A delusion of importance and competence could lead 

you into a dangerous effort. Take the practical view if you 

couldn't before, why should you now? Contact someone 

who's on yoiir mind. 

Virgo: The value is not always where you think it should be. 

■A special person is in your picture. Resist a temptation to be 


Libra: If no one seems to understand you, it's probably true - 

they don't. Be as clear and precise as you can during this 

fuzzy, unclear period. 

Scorpio: A trying weekend dissolves into a week of increasing 

activifies. You become involved in parties and fes.tivities. 

People believe what you say - unfortunately for them. 

Sagittarius: Lighten the twilight in your attutude. Darkness 

gets you nowhere. Allow your natural light to show through, 

and unexpected inter- personal results will be seen. 

Capricorn: A threat is made against you. It's not serious, but 

the misunderstanding has got to be cleared up or it will

Ed Everett's Goal: The Nationals 

Photo by Jay Kravetz 

Ed Everett reflects on his chaaces for the national cross country 

—On The Run — — 

Ed Everett knows the trail to 
the National Junior College 
Cross Country Championships 
is a long one, but if anyone can 
cover that long trail quickly, it's 
a distance runner. 

Everett ran for Broward 
Community College last year 
and missed going to the 
nationals by only a few places. 

"I didn't want it badly enough 
last year but this year will be 
different. I practiced hard this 
summer and ran with the Fort 
Lauderdale Roadrunners, a 
track club, and won a few 
races," explained Everett. 

BCC gave up cross country 
after the 1973 season, making 
Everett a runner without a 
team. He heard that JC needed 
runners so he came here to run. 
"I didn't want my future as a 
runner to go down the drain." 

"This season has been a 
disappointment so far, but I 
always come through in the big 
meets." said Everett. 

Evidence of how badly 
Everett wants to succeed is the 
amount of practice he puts in. 
"I try to get 110 miles of 
running a week." says Everett. 

He believes that cross 
country, in the long run, will 
help him have a better track 
season saying, "Cross country 
is my bread and track's my 

Everett's biggest hope is to go 
to the national championship. 

With all those miles behmd 
him, the trail to the Nationals 
must look shorter and shorter all

Rizo won the meet by defeating Ronald Pick, the 17th rankeJ 

player in Florida, in the semifinals and Will Sherwood in the finals i 

' He's supposed to be one of the best players in the area," said: 

Rizo. i 

A 24-year-old purchasing major, Rizo feels his age and maturihf 
are an asset to his playing and to his ability to be a team leadei.: 

' 'I think 1 am more mature than some of the players on the team ; 
because I am older than they," said Rizo. 

Rizo began his tennis career after high school using the sport a J 
an alternative to soccer. i; 

"Soccer players who are fast tend to get knocked down by the; 
slower players," said Rizo, "I took up tennis because it was just as? 
fast as soccer, but it was safer." i 

Rizo gradually improved his game to the state where he could J

Walker Takes 4th 

Lack of depth and experience hampered the newly formed 
women's golf team in the Falconette Invitational held at the 
Hollywood Lakes Country Club, October 10 and 11. 

Miami Dade North won the meet with a score of 621, followed by 
Rollins, 633; University of Miami, 638; Florida State University, 
722; Palm Beach 733; and Florida International University 750. 

"We finished fifth out of six teams," said Dr. Howard Reynolds. 
"We would have finished better than that, but our number four 
golfer. Donna Marotta, hurt her wrist in an auto accident on October 

"The women's team has two outstanding golfers. One of them 
Colleen Walker," is as good as anyone around" said Reynolds. 

In the 36-hold tournament. Walker shot a 76 and a 79 for a 155 
and finished in fourth place. ■^ 

Walker is an outstanding women golfer and is capable of national 
recognition," said Reynolds. 

The other outstanding golfer is Linda Moore. She finished 15th 
with an 85 the first day and a 79 the second day to finish with a'l64. 

"Those two girls can compete with anyone, Linda will average 
around 80." said Reynolds. 

The number three golfer on the Pacer team is Sara Marsh. She 
shot a 95 the first day and a 93 the second for a 188. 

The number four golfer is Joyce Pruett. Joyce shot a 116 the first 
day and a 110 the next for a 226, 

If, by winter term the girls are able to shoot 80 or below, we 
should be very competitive with the other schools," said Reynolds. 

Reynolds continued, "One main problem right now is that we do 
not have a. women's golf coach. Hopefully, next year we will be able 

to get one'." 

leadership abilities." 

Wright said he preferred to 
pick the team captains instead 
of letting the team vote on the 
issue because the team vote 
tends to result in a popularity 

The team is working on basic 
individual and team fundamen- 
tals in their early practices. 

"We are stressing practice in 
each boy's weakness," said 
Wright. "We want to improve 
each boy's all-around game." 

Wright said the team is also 
working on group fundamentals 
like passing and rebounding. 

"We want to work hard in 
these areas because that is 
where we were weak last year," 
said Wright. 

The squad was shortened by 
one player as forward prospect, 
Jerry Blade, left the team to 
return to his home in Ohio. 

Blade was a teammate of 
Brandon in high school and was 
highly recommended by him. 

"Jerry is a good ballplayers," 
said Brandon. "I think he 
would have been a big help to 
the team."

same feelings about Blade but 
sympathize with his reasons for

Mrs. Vignau, vice-chair- 
man of the senate, yielded 
the floor to Mr. Gross, who is 
not a senator. According to 
the senate parliamentarian 

Watson B. Duncan, this was 
in violation of parliamentary 
procedure. No senator ob- 
jected however and Gross 
took the floor. 

"It's very poor logic to 
assume that I know my total 
score. I would then know my 
individual score and I fail to 
see how this could compro- 
mise those scores. For my 
own personal reasons I would 
like to have my total scores." 
stated Gross.

that the total scores be given

A vote was taken on the 
amended motion, and in 
violation of the senate 
constitution, the item was 
passed on the first readipg. 

Senate Constitution states 
that a vote is not taken until 
after the second reading at a 
subsequent meeting. In- 
formed sources say that an 
objection to the IDA motion 
will be raised at the next 
senate meeting.

year reign by Dr. Manor 
came to an end.

senators special privileges

around which articles of the

Allee Serves Students 

By Brian E. Crowley 
News Editor 

Max Allee, a young, 
energetic social science 
instructor, believes that the 
ultimate purpose of the 
faculty senate is to serve the 
students. "That's what the 
hell it's all about," says the 
new faculty senate chairman. 

Allee wants the faculty 
senate to work very closely 
with student government 
and with the student body as 
a whole. 

Allee sees his job as 
chairman realistically. "I 
think some people felt 
inhibited with Dr. Manor as 
chairman and wouldn't 
speak; now we should be 
more open," added Allee, 
"there are some people, 
however, who couldn't care 
less about the senate."

decals, a special name tag, 
and each Senator would get 
$50 per semester. 

"I will tell you right now, 
that without a committee set 
up to determine who on their 
own persorival merits is 
eligible for this honorarium 
and special privileges, I 
promise you I will veto it." 
said SG President Tory 

"There is no evaluation 
committee set up, and I do 
not believe that Senators 
who follow just the guide- 
lines of the Constitution a;re 

eligible for honorariums, 
because they'll come in her 
and just sit here and do 
nothing. You have to have 
some motivation for them," 
added Buckley. 

Each part of the bill was 
voted on separately and 

Buckley stated after the 
meeting that he wasn't sure 
whether he would veto the 
bill or not. Even if he does 
veto the law, the Senate has 
the right to override his veto 
by a two-thirds vote of all

Sales Management Gets Blood 

By Robin Witt 

Wednesday, Oct. 30, the Sales 
Management Club sponsored a blood drive. 
103 people volunteered, 83 were able to give 
and 83 pints were collected. 

Although the goal was 100 pints 
Mrs. Chapman, a medical technologist for 
the Palm Beach Blood Bank siad the drive 
"was excellent, the cooperation of the 
students was wonderful. Everything turned 
out beautifully." 

Mrs. Chapman also stated that a request 
for 12 platelets (clotting factor in blood) 
was fulfilled 

A' pint of blood given to the blood bank 
entitles the donor and his/her immediate 
family to as much blood as is needed for a 

year at no cost to them. The only cost 
would be that of the transfusing process. 
It takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes 
for the entire process to be completed, 
which included the taking of your 
temperature, a medical history, a blood test 
and the actual giving of the blood. 

People on the average have 9 to 10 pints of 
blood and the loss of one is of no 

The fluids of the blood are. replaced within 
24 hours and the iron content is replaced in 3 
to 4 weeks. Blood can be given every 56days 
(2 months) and as often as 5 times a year. 

"I'd like to remind the students that if 
they didn't give they can give in April, at the 
school, or they can come to the Blood Bank.

You've just been told 
you're going to die. What is 
your initial reaction? Fear? 
Shock? Cold shivers up your 

According to Dr. Richard 
E. Yinger, instructor for the 
new course, Death aild 
Dying, "Death should" be a 
joyous, fascinating happen- 
ing; consequently it's a 
concept which is made out to 
be the most feared experi- 
ence in our society today." 

At that meeting, Yinger 
discussed the attitudes and 
thoughts on death and dying 
in American society.He 
considered the basic issue of 
life and death and gave an 
overview of what was to be 
covered in the weeks to 

"I started my fascination 
with death," Yinger explain- 
ed, "while I was an 
undergraduate. I began to 
realize that life is a joke and 
that the contemplation of 
death is an integral, 
necessary component in the 
contemplation of life." 

Despite attempted sup- 
pression, Yinger' s class was 
finally granted and he 
himself did not expect such 
an enthusiastic turnout. 

In teaching the course, 
Yinger hopes to convey the 
framework of death as 
being positive and beautiful, 
while seeking the nature 
and purpose of human 
"People all too often tend to 

associate death and dying 
with black shrouds, goblins, 
and Halloween," Yinger' 
continued! "What we are 
trying to distinguish is that 
you cannot destroy life, only 
transform it." 

He cited the fact that when 
a body dies, it doesn't 
disapppear, it simply 
changes from solid to hquids 
and gasses. 

"The only way to remove 
something from this planet is 
to send it out of the 
atmosphere," , he said", 
"otherwise, it just changes 
forms and is recycled back 
into the soil." 

In future meetings, which 
will be held every Tuesday 
night at 7 p.m. until Nov. 12, 
professionals from thie com- 
muntiy will speak, discus- 
sing the practical realities of 
death such as legal, financial 
procedural and the liturgy 
and religious approaches. 

In the final session, 
participants, will exchange 
views in order to develop the 
ability to discuss death and 

A summary of materials 
covered, suggestions for 
further readings and 
possible future seminars in 
related areas will be 
discussed in the final 

Yinger is a Doctor of 
Philosophy with a degree in 
Sociology and an M.S. in 
Economics from Florida 
State University. He also has 
a B.S. in Social Sciences 
from Millerville State Col- 
lege of Pennsylvania.

Awards presented to the 
Beachcomber and Media,

Manor Says JC Needs One 

Future JC expansion into 
•Campuses at Palm Beach 
Gardens and Belle Glade 
"depends to a large extent on 
"^bter approval of Amend- 
*>ient One in Tuesday's 
^lection, according to JC 
^resident Dr. Harold C. 

At a recent news confer- 
ence. Manor indicated that 
^lie present main campus has 
*^een built largely through a 
"^tate bonding program, 
^hich the passage of 
"'^VjTiendment One will contm- 
^e, that has been approved 
^y voters twice before, in 
1963, and 1969. 

Under the program, the 
^tate issues bonds for school 
Construction at area voca- 
*• tional-technical centers, 
"^ornmunity colleges and 
Universities, and allows 

these bond funds to be used 
additionally for construction 
and renovation of elementary 
and secondary school build- 

"The amendment calls for 
no new taxes," said Manor, 
"and we know of no 
opposition to it." 

"Our only fear is that 
voters will not understand 
what the amendment is, and 
that it is virtually the only 
source of revenue for 
construction at the college." 

Bond funds, from which 
the state bonding program 
would allocate grants, come 
from the gross receipts tax. 
The gross receipts tax is a 
IVz percent tax paid by 
utilities and municipalities 
on the gross amount of their 

All Central Campus build- 
ings, with the exception of 
the Criminal Justice Building 
Institute and the Library 
Learning Resources Center, 
have been largely funded 
with money from the state 
bonding program, stated 

"It would be possible for 
the state legislature to 
appropriate money for junior 
college construction directly 
from the general revenue of 
the state," Manor said, "but 
experience has shown that 
legislatures are reluctant to 
do this." 

Manor concluded that, 
"As a consequence, it is very 
important if the junior 
college system is going to 
serve the interest of our 
students, that Amendment 
One be approved Tuesay."

the woman's movement. Ms. 
Notter blows a fresh breeze 
onto the subject. She makes

Askew Worfhy 
Of Reelection 

Reubin G'Donovan Askew has proven himself one of the 
finest governors Florida has ever had in Tallahassee. 
Florida has had four years of honest, open government in 
the public interest -- at a time when governmental officials 
are being indicted right and left for their wrongdoings. 

"Reubin Hood" has stolen from the rich (corporate 
profits tax) and given to the poor (revenue surpluses have 
permitted new school construction). 

His antagonist, Jerry Thomas, the Banker of 
Nothinghum, has criticized the governor for being ultra- 
liberal and expanding state government too much. 

Askew is for (and Thomas is against) 18 year old 
rights, open-dorm policies at state universities, and school 
busing. Askew is for tlie Equal Rights Amendment; 
Thomas has yet to decide publicly. 

Thomas has accused Askew of mismanagement of the 
state's finances. One look at current banking conditions 
under conservatives such as Thomas (who is chairman of a 
bank-holding company) causes us to wonder if a 
Thomas-run government would be anything less than 
linancial chaos. 

Askew's selection for Ueutenant governor, state Senator 
Jim WUliams, wiU be an asset to the governor, and a 
welcome replacement for now-Lt. Gov. Tom Adams. 

Reubin Aikew has earned and deserves the public's 
vote on Nov. 5.

Member Defends Stoneharp; 
Wants To Set Story Straight 


I am writing this letter 
pertaining to an article in 
your Oct, 21 issue which 
contained misleading infor- 
mation about our rock group 
"Stoneharp" as stated by 
Dean Bursey (Manager of 
another band, "Dusen- 

At the last board meeting, 
Bursey stated that "Stone- 
harp," was a "copy" band 
whereas his group played 
only original songs and was a 
so-called "budding" group. 
He also said his group's goal 
was to become a "big name" 

I admire his optimism and 
arrogance but would like to 
set the record straight. 

First, "Stoneharp" uses 
its own material as well as 
other artists' songs. I never 

heard that the formula for a 
successful band was to 
play strictly original crea- 

Secondly, "Stoneharp" 
agreed to play both concerts 
for $200,. not $260. 

"Dusenberry" is just as 
much a "copy" band as any 

other. I'm positive theyc 
not write the song "Talc:' 
Care of Business" as wei. 
many others. 

We, as fellow musicij: 

would have appreciated it 

they would've remaiu' 

honest on this matter, '.

Non-Cooperafion Child of ZPO 


Do you favor Zero Population Growth? 
Probably. People who seek higher education 
are likely to be more socially cooperative and 
more responsive to ideas for improving the 
quality of hfe than those who do not. 

Here lies danger. Should you decide to 
limh your family to mere replacement level, 
those not so cooperative will gradually 
inundate the remnants of persons who 

practice ZPG. And, should catastrophe iic;, 
befall the human race, governments will stili 
find it imperative to control population b ' 
edict. i 

In this fashion the race will lose a larg;' 
proportion of its most cooperative member.' - 
and, in the far future, hurt its chances fo' 
ultimate survival. 



Rallies Gould Make Difference 


A pamphlet on a. doorknob 
a brochure under a 
windshield wiper can hardly 
take the place of meeting a 
candidate face to . face. The 
recent JC Repubhcan, Dem- 
ocratic and American Party 
Days gave voters a chance to 
do just this. 

With almost all major 
candidates represented, stu- 
dents and the public got a 
good chance to do their 
political homework. 

The JC Political Union, led 
by Edwin Pugh, Social 
Science instructor, also 
provided voters with a rare 
opportunity to hear the 
issues and compare candi- 
dates-a process necessary 
for responsible voting. 

Many times, candidates 
and their campaign workers 
actually outnumber the 
voters coming to these 

Although the number of 
students participating in 
the Party Day raUies was 
small compared to JC's total 
enrollment, voter interest 
was shown. Perhaps a voter 
or two will also be persuaded 
to go to the polls because of 
actual contact with the 

Secretary of State Dorothy 
Glissen predicts a 70% voter 
turnout in tomorrow's elec- 
tion. This would be a big 
improvement over the 20% 
voter turnout in the Oct. 1 
run-offs. These meet-the- 

candidates rallies coj 
make a difference. 

Beach Bond Bingo . . . 

Voters To Decide On Acquisition 

Passage by voters Tuesday 
of Bond Elections-Position 8 
would add 2.5 miles of beach 
and allow for the develop- 
ment of three exisiting parks 
and addhional park acquisi- 
tion in Palm Beach County. 
The Beachcomber lUrges 
passage of this measure. 

Proposed by the Palm 
Beach County Commission, 
the bond issue would cost 
county tax payers $50 million 
over a 30 year period. County 
planners estimate the tax 
increastper person at about 
$4 to $5 annually. 

Calling it a "now or never 
situation" the Palm Beach 
County Planning Depart- 
ment has been campaigning 
intensively for the bond's 

In a special release to the 
Beachcomber the county 
planners note that, "It is 
because of the current 
inflationary period that the 

public has the opportunity to 
acquire additional beach 

"Developers are ready 
and willing to sell their 
property because develop- 
ment is almost impossible. 
This economic fact places the 
county in an extremely good 
bargaining position provid- 
ing the bond issue passes 

According to the planners, 
recommended expenditures 
of the $50 milhon is to be as 

80% " Acquisition 

10% "Development 

10% - Maintenance and 

Improvements and acqui- 
sitions are to be made in 
parks such as Morakami, 
Boca Raton, Okeechobee, 
Fahokee and also the 
Loxahatchee River area. 

At present the county 
owns 7.25 miles of beaches. 

Edwin Pugh 


All Deserve Passage 

The Beachcomber recommends that a "yes" vote be 
given to all seven amendments on the Nov. 5 ballot. 

AMENDMENT 1 - This amendment proposes to extend 
the state's authority to issue bonds for construction of 
learning institutions including community colleges, and 
universities (see related story, page 3). The amendment 
would also cover elementary and secondary schools if 

These bonds are backed by a gross receipts tax paid by 
utilities, which doesn't mean a higher tax or a new tax for 
the public. ' 

If the amendment passes, students will have better 

AMENDMEIST 2 - Too many voters will take this 
amendment to be an increase in gasoline tax, which it 
isn't. The measure provides for an extension of the tax 
from the year 2009 in which it expires to the proposed 
2025. It also extends the purposes nf the bonds for to cover 
mass transit as well as road construction, 

AMENDMEIVT 3 - This amendment is rather simple, 
changing the name of the office of "Tax Assessor" to 
"Property Appraiser", It is simply a measure to clarify 
the role of the present Tax Assessor office, which doesn't 
levy taxes at all. That is up to the school board and county 
commission. We feel the clarification should be made, 

AMENDMENT 4 - Under the provisions of this 
amendment, the Game and Fresh Water Commission 
would become subject to the budgetary control of the 
legislature. It is presently independent of any such 

Since there is no reason for the commission to be 
independent and not subject to regulation like other state 
agencies, we urge passage of this amendment. 

AMENDMENT 5 - We recommend voting for this 
amendment, which gives the Judicial Qualifications Board 
a broader power base to in its quest to keep the judiciary in 
proper form. 

AMENDMENT 6 - This amendment would _ grant 
municipalities the authority to join with private utilities in 
the construction and operation of power plants. Without 
such authority, the cost is sometimes too much for these 
municipalities to bear. The consumer should benefit from 
a "Yes" vote. 

AMENDMENT 7 ■ This aniendment provides that "no 
person be denied any right iDCcause of "a physical 
handicap." Thousands of disabled Floridians are striving 
to improve themselves through education, work, family 
participation, and other important aspects of life. While 
this amendment will not solve all their problems, it will 
open a few more doors, and should be passed. 

With the addition of 2.5 
miles of beach the county 
will still be below the State of 
Florida beach requirement 
standards. According to the 
state, with a projected 
population of 516,400 for 
1975, the county should have 
12.4 miles of beach. 

By 1980, if present 
population growth continues, 
the county would need 17 
miles of beaches, and by 
1990 the estimate is that 25 
miles of beaches are needed. 

The County Planning 
Department feels that addi- 
tional efforts must be 

directed at alternate means 
of achieving puWic access 
along the Atlantic beachfront 
so that the county can come 
closer to the 12.4 miles of 
beaches needed by 1975. 

Should the bond issue 
pass, the county would still 
be 2.65 miles short of the 
12.4 mile goal. 

In requesting additional 
beach-acquiring efforts, the 
planners have recommended 
certain criteria to be followed 
in the purchase of additional 

a.) Beach parcels should 
be adjacent to current 

pubhc beaches or be large 

enough to permit develop- 
ment, maintenance and 
operation as significant 
public beaches in their 
own right. 

b) Access by the mainland 
population should be 
reasonably available. 
Priority should be given 
to acquisition near the 
ends of east/west arterial 

c)The beach itself should 
be useful and safe 

d)Access tp already exisit- 
ing public beach lands 
should be retained.

Comber Election Report 



As we endorsed Gerald 
Lewis in the Democratic 
primary, we also give himour 
support in the November 5 
general election. 

Lewis, a former state 
senator and Miami lawyer, 
will be a valuable addition to 
the state cabinet, and a 
welcome successor to Fred 

He has pledged to seek 
reforms in the state" banking 
system, includingthe dispen- 
sing of bank charters. 

His opponent, William 
Muntzing, was an assistant 
to Claude Kirk for three 

years. '. 

Sebesta Winchester 

Five years of experience as 
Hillsborough County's su- 
pervisor of elections makes 
Republican James Sebesta 
the best choice for Secretary 
of State. 

His opponent. Democrat 
Bruce Smathers, has no 
elections experience-a vital 
point since the secretary of 
state is Florida's chief 
elections officer. 

Sebesta started the first 
fulitime mobile registration 
unit in Florida and initiated a 
variety of voter reforms. 

His outstanding public 
service record indicates hs is 
much better qualified than 
his opponent for this 
important cabinet post. 

It should be without 
hesitancy that voters pull the 
lever to return Jackie 
Winchester to her position of 
Supervisor of Elections. 

Mrs, Winchester has 
proven herself by reducing 
her budget, returning effi- 
ciency to the elections 
department, and providing 
new incentives for voter 
registration. Her opponent's 
lack of experience and his 
behef that the data proces- 
sing arm of the election 
return system : is properly 
managed is a plus for Mrs. 

A vote for Jackie Win- 
chester will be a vote for 
continuing election supervi- 
sion in the proper manner.

Field Trip Declared 'Outrageous ! colleges And careers shown 

Science Ciub campers take a break and relax as they 
begin their weekend. 

Prices "Pop" Up 

What is a movie without 
popcorn? The crunchy ker- 
nels are as much a part of 
show "biz" as the films 
themselves. But, woe to 
movie-goers! Popcorn is 
following the lead of beef, 
gas, sugar, toilet paper, etc.; 
there will soon be a shortage 
of it. 

This upcoming scarcity is a 
result of the poorest com 
harvest in several years. 
Cost of producing the corn 
has almost doubled, which 
inevitably means a price 

If that isn't enough, one 

must also consider that 
prices of ingredients needed 
to make popcorn have also 

... -i'v-^^v; . 
Popcorn should be enjoyed 
now since it is still plentiful 
enough to maintain current 
prices. It will continue to be 
sold at the movies in the 
future months, however 
supply will probably be 
limited. About the price? 
Well, that will be the hardest 
part of it to swallow! 

Scholarship Concert 

The concert choir, band, and orchestra will be 
performing November 17 at 4 p.m. in the Auditorium 
for the annual Scholarship Concert. 

This is the only concert for which a fee is charge. The 
fee is $1.60 for students and $2 for adults. Allthe funds 
from the concert go into scholarships for music students 
to further their education. 

Well-known works such as Bach's chorale "Now 
Thank we all Our God" accompanied by the organ and 
piano, and "Aria in G" done in an up tempo jazz 
arrangement also by Bach are planned. "0 Clap Your 
Hands by R. Vaughnn Williams is another of the 
many selections on the program.

Again the caravan of 
Science Club members left 
from JC ready for another 
field trip. Twenty-six mem- 
bers left Friday afternoon, 
headed for Ocala National 
Forest to camp in the Juniper 
Springs Campground. 

According to Mr. Richard 
Gross, co-moderator, every- 
thing was very well organiz- 
ed. The campsite was 
reserved, and the tents were 
pitched before nightfall. 
Seven male students with the 
intention of "roughing it" 
occupied one tent with all the 
comforts of home, including 
cots, a stove, and a heater. 

Rising bright and early 
Saturday morning, the camp- 
ers rented canoes and 
paddled down the Juniper 
Springs Run. Everyone 
commented on the beauty of 
the run, and as Gross put it, 
"the water was crystal clear 
from beginning to end, 
reminding us of scenes from 
the movie. The Yearling' 
when we saw a few deer." 
Other wildlife they encount- 
ered included large turtles," 
and because of the clear 
water, many fish. In many 
sports the bubbling of the 
springs in the stream was 

From an ecological point of 
view, the canoers saw areas 

where the tornadoes had hit 
last summer. "It created an 
erie feeling to see the giant 
hardwoods turned over." 
said Gross. "But the new 
growth could be seen, even 
though it had only been a few 

At the end of the run, 
many canoers were treated 
to the surprise of an old 
Science Club tradition. 
Standing nonchalantly on a 
small bridge above the 
water. Gross and a few 

others appeared quite harrri' 
less until they jumped off 
onto the rest of the canoers, 
turning them into the waler. 
That night, surrounding 
the campfire, the campers 
were treated to off- beat 
country-western music prO' 
vided by Claude Steelman or 
guitar. Also helping with the 
singing was Mr. Kopf, who 
according to club president, 
Dan Fried, knew every soup 
they sang. When asked for a 
description of the trip, Dan 
rephed, "Outrageous." 

Froternity In Action 

Phi Da Di, a campus fraternity, has chosen it's 
officers and is looking for new members. 

This year's officers are: President - Steve Marttinen, 
Vice Presidnet - Jeff Driggers, Treasurer - Junn 
iMartorell, Secretary - Jerry Kreucher, Sergeanl-at- 
Arms - Greg Nash. 

The fraternity meets Sunday evenings at 7 p.m. in 
the SAC lounge. Presently, plans are being made for the 
Sweetheart Ball, but they need more funds from 
Student Government, according to Jeff Driggers, Phi 

"All newcomers are welcome; the pledges are going 
to be easy this year," stated Jeff. He feels the present 
small membership is due to lack of communication 
among students about fraternities. 

The members of the club feel that the organization 
will become stronger with an increase in membership.

Palm Beach County stu- 
dents were given the unique 
opportunity to go shopping 
for the college or career of 
their choice recently at the 
Palm Beach Mall. 

Sixty-three senior colleges 
from nine southeastern 
states entered exhibits at the 
annual College and Career 
Days, formerly a one-day 
affair held at PBJC. 

The County wide effort, 
sponsored by the Palm 
County Counselor's Associa- 
tion this year, emphasized 
smaller schools and black 
colleges, according to Mr, 
Paul Glynn, coordinator of 
the event an Dean of Student 
Personnel at JC, 

"Many students tend to 
seek smaller schools, where 
there is more interaction and 
a better student-teacher 
ratio" Glynn stated. "This is 
an excellent opportunity for 
students to get information 
which could lead to a better 
choice of career or college." 

The Palm Beach Junior 
CoUeg Exhibit, split between 
the college transfer and the 
occupational programs offer- 
ed at the college illustrated 
the dual nature of the event. 

Representing the "career 
side" was the North 
Technical Education Center, 
six representatives of busi- 
ness and professional groups 
for direct career information, 
and at least two exhibits 
from the armed forces, 
including a helicopter based 
in the center of the midway. 

"Students who do not 
already have definite college 
or career plans, and that 
means most high school 
students, cannot afford to 
miss this chance of finding 
the right direction," Glynn 
stated prior to the event. 

Although the turnout was 

not as enthusiastic as 

anticipated, a teacher's 

planning day did seem to 

boost attendance. 

Glynn remarked that his 

only regret was the lack of 
advertisement and promo- 
tion beforehand. 

According to Glynn, col- 
lege and career planning 
should begin early in high 
school at least by the junior 

In previous years, the 
entire Junior Class was 
transported to PBJC for the 
one day event. 

"Double sessions, plus a 
lack of transportation made 
the former idea impossible" 
Glynn stated, "the Associa- 
tion then voted to open it up 
to a three day event and 
allow any student or parent 
to come on a voluntary basis. 

Open File 

Job Bank Opens 

Cindy Cowen 

PBJC will have on campus by 
early next term a Job Bank, 
which will include an 
updated daily list of jobs 
available throughout the 
state. This "up-to-the-min- 
ute" directory will be 
stationed in the Job 
Placement Office, located in 
the Career Information and 
Study Center on the first 
floor of the library. This 
information will be available 
to all students. 

New Weekend Hours 
— —On Trial Runs 






As a new service to its 
students and the community, 
Indian River community 
College has set up weekend 
library hours .The new hours 
are from 9 a.m. -1 p.m. on 
Saturdays and from 1 p.m. -5 
p.m. on Sundays. 

The idea to establish these 
hours was suggested by the 
Administration of the col- 
lege. This was thought to be 
a unique and useful 
community service that 
would be of interest to all.So 
far, the new service has not 
sparked much interest from 

the student body, not the 
surrounding community. The 
library staff is not overly 
enthusiastic about the idea 
either. They feel that it is a 
waste of their time to open 
the library for only four our 
five people to use. 

The Hbrary is now closed 
on Fridays so that the library 
staff is still only working a 
forty hour week. Besides 
the newhours that must be 
worked on weekends, each 
member of the staff is 
required to work at least one 
night a week. 

According to Miss Gwendo- 
lyn Ferguson, the coordina- 
tor, "The Job Placement 
Office presently has a file of 
50-75 available jobs from the 
individual employers and the 
Florida State Employment 
Service (FSES). All PBJC 
students, former students 
and graduates are ehgible to 
use this information without 
charge, and we are now 
sending letters to graduates 
and former students inform- 
ing them of this service. 

Miss IFergusom added, 
"The college departments 
also offer job placement 
help, but we're here to aid 
those who need additional 
guidance." Miss Ferguson 
explained that the new Job 
Bank will be established in 
cooperation with FSES, and 
the list of employment 
possibilities will be on 
microfiche - plastic cards 
similar (o micro film, which 
students can run through a 
viewer to learn of available 

The FSES will train a 
college representative in the 
use of the equipment and

Window To Open 

"The Sign In SidneyrBriistein's Window" will be 
presented by Palm Beach Junior College Dramatic 
Department on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and 
Sunday, Nov. 7,8,9, and 10 with a benefit performance 
scheduled Thursday, Nov. 14, -for the Lake Worth 

The story behind the play is almost as gripping and 
poignant as the story within theplay, according to 
Frank Leahy, faculty director of this season's first 
production. , 

'Sign's playwright, Lorriane Hansberry, won the New 
York Drama Critics Award for Best Play of the year for 
1958-1959 for her "A Raisin In the Sun". She was the 
youngest American playwright, the. fifth woman and 
the only black writer ever to receive this honor. 

Although her first play "Raisin" was a smashing 
success, the opening of her second play was met with 
mixed reviews. Unless a large financial backing was found 
for the play, it would close. 

"The Sign In Sidney Brustein's Window" seemed 
doomed to failure. 

Sadly, they broke the news to Lorraine, a woman who 
knew she was seriously ill, but didn't know she was 
suffering from cancer, and the playwright was concerned, 
wondering what would happen should her illness keep her 
from writing for a long time. 

Situations, ho waver, changed. 

Frank and Eleanor Wright, who had lent the production 
$2,500 with the stipulation that the production recieved 
good reviews, called to say that despite the odds,they still 
wanted their money to be used for the show. 

Thus it was that the show was kept open by people who 
had seen the show and thought the show was too good to 
close, and did something about it. Among those who 
devoted their time and money were, Shelley Winters, 
Viveca lindfors, Steve Allen, and Richard Rodgers plus a 
host of others, famous and not-so-famous.

A Clash Of Wants And Needs 

"I wish to live, because 
life has within it that which is 
good, that which is beautiful, 
and that which is love. 
Therefore, since I have 
known all of these things, I 
have found them to be 
reason enough, and... I wish 
to live." Lorraine Hansberry 
wrote that before her death 
on January 12th, 1965. 

This love of life that 
Hansberry expressed is 
evident throughout the play, 
"The Sign in Sidney 
Brustein's Window." 

The play will be presented 
by the JC dramatic depart- 
ment on the nights of Nov. 

Drama Stories By Frank Smith, Entertainment Co-Editor

7th -11. 

While learning her work 
the players have grown to 
"know" Lorraine Hansber- 

Karen Moore, who por- 
trays Sidney Brusteins' wife. 
Iris, says of Hansberry, 
"She's the most amazing 
writer who ever lived... to 
create nine completely dif- 
ferent people ! . . .to have each 
one of them so justified in 
their different stand!!! 
' Ms. Moore says, "The 
play is so beautiful. It makes 
you realize there is so much 
to live, to keep on going. 
find exactly what living is 
for! It's breathing, walking, 
talking, being..." 

"People have got to come 
and see this play." She says, 
saying that if it were 
possible, she would like to 
pull everybody inside the 
auditorium tg see it, so 
strong is her belief in the 
good effect the play would 
have on them, 

"Keith Cooper, who plays 

Sign Supported By Famous Figures 

"The Sign in Sidney Brustem's Window", a play of 
depth and symbolism, inspired these comments from its 

''I like the character, I'm reaUy int him. The character 

believes in a lot of things I do," commented Keith Cooper 

who IS playmg Alton Scales, neighbor of the Brusteins. 

Alton has very strong feeliiigs on civil rights and so do I. 

1 guess that s partly why I like him." 

Although Keith enjoys derious drama, he prefers 

In high school, Keith played Donald in the well-known 
comedy, "You Can't Take It With You." 

"Window" deals with today's problems: racism, 
interracial marriage,^ drugs, politics and civil rights," 
states Keith. "I don't want to tell everything about the 
play. I want people to come see it rather than read about 

The lead part of Sidney Brustein is played by Joe 
Redon. Surprisingly, Joe has no previous acting 
experience. This will be his first time on stage. 

"Sidney is very close to the person I am. He just wants 
to succeed in something, he'll try anything once. That's 
why I'm doing 'Window', I have an interest," expressed 


Joe is very modest about his apparent talent and he 
considers himslef a studnet among many actors. 

"I don't feel I'm the actor that the others are," he said. 
He has hopes of doing other plays in the future but does 
not plan to make the theatre a career. 

Portraying Sidney's wife, Iris Brustein, is experienced 
actress Karen Moore. Karen has acted in four previous 
plays at JC. 

"Of all the shows I've been in, I've had to work the 
hardest on building this character," commented Karen. 

As experienced as she is, Karen stillfinds it difficuh to 
stop being herself and become Iris because she feels she 
and Iris are very close in character. Karen describes Iris as 

^^ Obviously enthused with the play, Karen stated that 
"Window" is "the most powerful, truthful and honest 
play I've ever read" 

Her deep feehngs for the playwright were clear when 
she said, "Lorraine Hansberry is beautiful. There are 
actually no words to describe her. Beautiful... yet, even 
that is an injustice to her." 

Karen expressed the feelings of the entire cast and 
students involved in the play when she said, "People have 
to see the show... it says so much!" 

Alton Scales says of the play, 
"It's funny, heart-warming, 
sad, loving, and about 

The artists seem to be 
completely involved willi 
understanding their charac- 
ters. The play, because of its 
content, demands this. It is 
about a group of people who 
are of different philosophical 
ideals, different ways of life, 
and how these differences 
interact, inter-relate. There 
is a clash of values, there is a 
clash of wants and needs. 
The play points out how 
every one is different 

and how seldom these 
differences are actually 
understood or even noticed . 

The play states that people 
are self-centered and usually 
concern themselves only 
with their own lives. 
Working on this basic theme 
Hansberry developes a very 
fine play with characters that 
really live. 

The characters are: Sidney 
Brustein ( Joe Redon) and 
Iris husband and wife. 
Sidney is a perpetual 
intellectual, and a failure^, 
who buys a paper business. 
Iris is getting tired of 
Sidney's failures, tired of her 
failings as an actress, and 
tired of their marriage. 

Mavis Parodus and Gloria 
Parodus are Iris Brustein's 
sisters. Mavis (Dixie Olin- 
ger) is a straight, middle 
class, snoop of a lady and 
Gloria (Kitty Albertson) is a 
very successful prostitute. 

Alton Scales (Keith Moo- 
re) David Begin (Gene 
Lancaster) and Wally Ohara 
(Danny Stewart) are other 
charades. Alton is an 
"involved" Black who used 
to be Communists. Davitl is 
a homosexual playwrite, and 
Wally is running for town 
council. Max, who works 
with Sidney on the paper, 
(Played by David Batho) and 
the detective (Gregory Bdell) 
complete the cast. 

rCracker" Crumbled 


John Auchterlonie 

Animal crackers were raearit to be eaten, 
not watched. But when the Marx brothers 
are doing the eating, then it's time to relax. 

"Animal Crackers" is a re-released, 
original '30's production starringthe Marx 
Brothers. Don't forget, this movie is a 
re-release. That means it's in black and 
white, scratched and spliced; not to mention 
that the admission price is the same as that 
of contemporary films. 
Neverthheless, Groucho Marx is one of my 
favorites, with his zany, quick and witty 
nonsense-type humor. By the way, the 
brothers are featured as individual 
characters, not as a quartet. 

HarjDO and Zeppo are marginal as actors. 
But, Harpo does display his musical talents 
extremely well on the harp. I believe Freud 
himself could not understand Harpo. 
Meanwhile, Zeppo's job is to throw in 
straight lines wherever he can. 

The plot of the movie is simple and as 
organized as the Marx style of humor. It 
centers around the arrival of the infamous 
Captain Spaulding (Groucho) from his safari 
in Africa , and the unveiling of a priceless 
painting to a weahhy group of people, who 
are guests at a rich widow's estate. Through 
a young painter's ambition and two 

mischievous dousins, the paintiiig is 
switched before its unveiling, and lost in the 

The movie's humor comes from the antics 
of the Marx Brothers, not the script. 

Groucho is the best with his "African 
Hunter" routine. Harpo and Zeppo enter 
the movie as musicians for the affair but, 
naturally, they play off key. 

The humor deals more with actions than 
words. The entire movie is compiled of 
short, comical sketches. These routines are 
worked around the plot in such forms as 
. playing a card game, playing a musical 
instrument, taking a letter and even trying 
to solve a mystery. 

The quality of the film leaves something 
to be desired. But the black and white film, 
the acting and the set will all be forgiven 
with the realization that this film was made 

Why "Animal Crackers" was picked to be 
re-released I'll never know. The Marx's 
have done better; "A Night at the Opera" is 
by far a better representation of the Marx 

But then, like 3-D and other movie 
oddities, Groucho only goes around once in a 
blue moon. 

Recording Giants 

There is no group like Gentle Giant and there never has 
been. They are to be commended for being so original in 
their approach to rock music and in blending it very tastefully 
with their deep classical roots. 

There is no album like "The Power and the Glory". It is to 
be recognized as a marvelous musical accomplishment, 
possibly even a bit ahead of our time. 

The music is of a very high caliber and refrains from the 
use of any boring, overused, typical rock cliches found in 
much of today's popular music. Everything is totally 
original. Every little riff, every melody, every theme, and 
even in the improvisation, the typical repetitious licks are 

The highlight of the album is the unique vocal 
arrangements found on most songs. No screams or 
yeah-yeahs, but rather, serious philosophical expressions 
and mystical announcements proclaiming freedom and the 
power and the glory in these hard, troubled times. 

It offers a very refreshing straightforward message to 
listeners as well as eight tracks of very exciting music. The 
music will stand out in your mind above many other familiar 
contemporary songs. 

Gentle Giant is very big in England but hasn't received 
toomuch recognition in the States yet. However, you will be 
hearing a lot more about them in the future as they become 
more widely discovered. 

"Hail To": Derek Shulman, vocals and all saxes; Ray 
Shulman, bass, vocals, violin; Kerry Minnear, keyboards, 
cello, vocals; Gary Green, all guitars; and John Weathers, 
drums, percussion and vocals. 

Gentle Giant really must be heard to be believed. It surely 
will enlighten the multitudes of young, sophisticated 
progressive rock listeners around these days. 

"The Power and the Glory" is easily one of the year's 
hottest albums and can be found on the Capital label with the 
Giant King of Spades on the cover. 

Seminar Explores Afro Music 

Oveta Jckson sensitively handles the vocal rendition 
of an Aro- American spiritual in a seminar of historical 
black songs. 

Gaireon Photo 

Afro-American music was 
the topic of an October 30 
seminar held in the Human- 
ities building and lead by 
Ms, Pat Johnson, music 

The seminar was high- 
lighted by numerous spirit- 
uals and Gospel songs, The 
first of these was "I Want 
Jesus to Walk With Me" 
sung by Perry Stokos, 
accompanied on the piano by 
Victor Gent student at FAU. 
This was followed by Ms. 
Johnson singing the same 
song yet differently to 
illustrate her feelings that a 
person doing the song must

Baseball Nine 
Stung By North 

By Timolliy L. Bray 
Sports Editor 

With the conclusion of the 
fall schedule last Wednesday 
night, the next task for JC 
head baseball coach Dusty 
Rhodes is to reduce his 
roster to 22 players. 

Coach Rhodes feels this is 
a monumental task since any 
one of the remaining 30 
members are capable of 
playing. His iinal decision is 
to come this week. 

Between now and Christ- 
mas vacatioHj Rhodes said, 
he is going to stress 
fundamentals in the informal 
practices. The Pacers com- 
mitted four errors in one 
inning against Miami-Dade 

Against the Falcons, on 
Wed. Oct, 31, the Pacers had 
the ball game in hand 
leading 2-1 going into the 
bottom of the seventh. Then, 
as Rhodes commented, "We 
took too much of a seventh 
inning stretch.". 

Pacer pitchers allowed six 
runs on six walks, and the 
defense committed 2 errors. 
The Falcons did not hit a ball 
out of the infield during the 

Rhodes pulled some of his 
starters in the inning. "I had 
to see some of the other guys 
play under pressure.". 

The Pacers' runs came in 
the third, fifth, and seventh, 
with Sam Testa collecting 3 

In the third, Glenn Rogers 
led off with a base hit. 
Rhodes then sent Rogers on 
a hit and run. Skip Walker 
responded with a hit to right 
field sending Rogers to third. 
Tests then scored Rogers. 

The same sequence happ- 
ened in the fifth with Rogers 
and Waker getting on base 
and Testa scoring Rogers 
with an RBI hit. 

In the top of the seventh, 
Walker took a base on balls, 
stole second, went to third on 
Testa's base hit, and scored 
on a passed ball. Testa 
ended the scoring for the 
Pacers on a base hit by Jerry 

"Miami-Dade North," 
commented Rhodes, "is a 
great team with great 
facilities. Falcon coaches feel 
that we're better than South 
and Downtown. " 


7 to 9 p.m. 
In the Gym 

Due to the pro draft in 
January, many pro scouts 
were in attendance looking 
over many of the players. 

The Pacers finished with a 
7-5 record during the fall 

Rhodes believes JC base- 
ball is "taking a change for 
the better. I've pushed the 
guys pretty hard. They've 
been playing ball since 
September. They need a 
break and I need a break." 


"We took too much of a 
seventh inning stretch,"

during the Senate meeting that

"I believe it can be done and I 
believe that we can come up 
with a much better document," 
said Ginchereau. 

Ginchereau wants to make the 
constitution clearer in the 
powers of all branches of 
government and to make the 
Senate . as effective as the 
executive board. Senators, on 
occasion have had to waste time 
during Senate meetings because

OAA, 50's Funded 

Staff Writer 

Student Government's Executive Board allotted $300 to O.A.A. 
for the Odura festival and tentatively appropriated $1,000 to Phi Lo 
for a 50's dance, at the November 5 meeting. 

The Odum is an annua! Afro-American cultural event which has 
become a tradition at JC, according to Oveta Jackson, President of 

Skits, poems, food, an art exhibit, music presentations, and a 
display of African, attire are included in the event. Awards are given 
and guest speakers are invited. 

The Odum is scheduled for December 6 and is open to all 

O.A.A. originally requested $500 for the Odum, much of which 
would have been spent for a live band for entertainment. The 
Executive Board was against granting funds for the band and 
suggested^iomitting it. Miss Jackson agreed to discuss this with 
members of O.A.A. The Executive Board allotted $300 for the 

Becky Davis, Vice-President of Phi Lo, requested funds for a 50's 
dance that the sorority hopes to hdd at JC. Phi Lo contacted others 
clubs on campus to. see if any were interested in helping with the 
dance. There was a favorable response. 

Miss Davis feels "there would be a fantastic turnout, in view of 
the present 50's craze." 

The dance would feature a live band playing 50's music, with 
students wearing fashions from the 50's. Teachers would be 

Tory Buckley, President of SGA agreed to negotiate with the 

Miss Davis was willing to call a meeting with representatives of 
clubs that are mterested in helping with the dance, and report the 
results at the next Board meeting. 

A motion was passed to tentatively appropriate 51,000 to Phi Lo 
with final approval at the next meeting. 

President Buckley reported on his October 30 meeting with Dr. 
Manor. According to Buckley, Dr. Manor is opposed to a 
mandatory Student Activity hour because approximately 70% of the 
day students work and must have their classes finished in the 
morning. The activity hour would be cutting out a block of their 
time. Dr. Manor recommended an optional student activity hour. 

Approval of the Winter Movie Schedule was delayed until the 
Executive Board can study the prices.

The Student Government Senate has taken it upon themselves, in 
their first official bill of the year, to award honorariums and special 
privileges for each member of the Senate. 

The Senate, obviously thinking themselves worthy of it, first 
wanted to grant senators honorariums and the cost of tuition and 
books for the period of their incumbancy. With just one resolution 
concerning a desire to fix the faulty clock situation at JC behind 
them, Senate Resolution No. 74-002 by Senator James Boger was 
proposing the expenditure of hundreds of dollars to students for 
their title alone. Perhaps the possibility of a senator not showing up 
at all, just collecting his free ride, kept this farce from going 

Now the first bill of the year pops up, giving senators a $50 
honorarium, a name tag, . a car decal, and special parking spots. 
The bill reasons that the " Senate is pledpig its time and effort to the 
betterment of all persons" at JC in making its argument. 

We think their argument, saying that the privileges and a small 
honorarium would be an incentive for a full slate of candidates each 
year, is not a valid one. Senators serve the students because they 
want to, not because of a token sum of money. We do not feel that 
honorarium is wrong; however, careful supervision over who gets 
the money should be established before any checks are written. 

"Beaches and parks - NOW" voters declared last Tuesday, 
saying yes to the $50 million beach and park bond issue. 
' This affirmative decision is a victory for the county's citizens. For 
an estimated $7 to $20 a year, the public will be buying access to 
seven additional miles of beaches, a priceless purchase if utilized. 
Parks will also be bought and developed. 

No one can predict exactly what a taxpayer's yearly bill will be to 
pay off the S50 million, an issue debated by the bond's opponents. 
Because of varying interest rates, population and years of financmg, 
only general cost estimates can be made. 

But, the current economic slump makes now a good time to buy. 
And, voters have given the county permission to do it. 

Commissioner Bob Culpepper and others got the reward they 
sought after trekking 45 miles along the county's coast. 

They also got an extra bonus - interest aroused concerning the 
bond probably helped bring voters to the polls. 


WRAP" If Up \ 


WRAP, the campus "radio station" beset with program and 
technical problems, should leave the air. 

Since the beginning of the school year, WRAP has promised 
cafeteria listemers a consistent offering of quality music at 
reasonable tones. 

Unfortunately, despite installation of new amplifiers and sound 
equipment, WRAP has consistently overpowered students with 
loud, blaring music played at an indigestion-inducing treble level. 

Our complaint is shared by others. The Beachcomber has 
received mkny letters in reference to the situation. In fact, on one 
afternoon over a dozen students (and the cafeteria manager) came 
through Beachcomber offices to complain to WRAP, which is located 
next to the 'Comber. 

Student Government, controller of WRAP operations, should 
investigate the WRAP situation. A possible solution to the problem 
could be to limit the airwaves to the SAC Lounge. 

Instead of remaining a "clique" for the amusement of a "chosen 
few", WRAP should return to the genuine service of the student 
body. '

Beachcomber Errors Again? 


In your headline article of November 4, "AUee 
Replaces Manor in Senate"; 

1. Paragraphs 2, 3, and 4 establish a 
progression of speakers, thus leading the reader 
to assume that the parliamentarian objected in 
the meeting; he did not. Additionally, Mr. Gross 
did not "take" the floor; he was granted the right 
to speak by Dr. Manor who said, "Well, all 

2. Paragraph 7 is correct; however, it would 
have been proper here to mention that the 
parliamentarian agreed after the vote that 
procedural violations notwithstanding, once a 
body has cast its vote without objection, the vote 

3. We think that both your introduction and 
conclusion, by their word choices ("emotional", 
"heated debate", and "claiming") establish a 
tone which slants opinion for the reader who was 
not present. Our memory of the meeting is 
that discussion by all parties was both smooth 
and restrained. 

Concerning the " claiining , " we had hoped that 
this issue which has been resolved 
(unconstitutionally, we think) would be allowed 
to die. Since you have resurrected the issue, we 
would be pleased if you would clarify the minority 
opinion of the Senate, which was based on a bit 
more than "claiming" that Mrs. Vignau should 
succeed to the Chairmanship. 

At issue we think was whether the Senate 
Constitution should be interpreted literally; 
Article 4, Section 3; "In all matters of 
procedures not specified herein, ROBERT'S 
applied." (underlining is ours) 

As you may remember, Mrs. Vignau was 
sufficiently interested in testing the validity of 
the minority opinion to request that faculty at 
large receive unedited copies of the pertinent 
passages in ROBERT'S and/or to request an

The parliamentarian was not 
heard from during the meeting, 
and I was recognized by the 
chair. No senators objected and 
I was allowed to speak. There 
has been ample precedent for 
this in the past operation of the 
Faculty Senate. 

The quote attributed to me in 
paragraph 1, column 3 should 
read as follows: 

'-'It is very poor logic to 
assume that IF I know my total 
score, I would then know my 

individual scores and I fail to see 
how this could compromise 
those scores. For my own 
personal reasons I would like to 
have my total SCORE." 

In reference to the statement 
that a vote taken on the first 
reading is in violation of the 
seante constitution, I refer the 
writer to the faculty senate 
constitution Part Al, page 28. 
This states there shall be two 
readings in reference to 
legislative action.

Prices for CLEP exammations are changing following the Nov. 14 
testing date. 

This will be the last offering of the exams at their current price 
which is one general examination for fifteen dollars, two or more for 
thirty dollars. Subject examinations are fifteen dollars each. 

Beginning in January, which is the next time the test will be 
offered at JC, the price for general exams will rise to twenty dollars 
for one, thirty dollars for two and forty dollars for three to five. The 
price of the subject exams will remain at fifteen dollars. 

Students wishing to take the CLEP tests to be offered Nov. 14 
should sign up as soon as possible in the testing center at JC, room 

Results of the CLEP tests given Sept. 19, 1974 show that only 
22% passed the general Humanities exam, 31% passed the Social 
Science exam, 42% passed the English exam, while students did 
better on Mathetmatics, which 52% passed, and the Natural 
Science examination which was passed by 65% 

Results of the Oct. 3 Health Exemption Exam are also in with 
fourteen students passing of twenty three who took the test. The 
next Health Exemption Exam will not be given until next semester. 

Many times a vote has been 
taken on the first reading when 
the matter involves internal 
action concerning the classifica- 
tion of the duties and 
responsibilities of a senate 
committee. This is exactly what 
happened. The chair was in 
order in calling for a vote after 
having identified the matter as 
one involving an internal

politicians and members of the 
state Board of Regents, had said 
that the "open bedroom policy" 
in effect at state universities and 
colleges have turned these 
once-placid sleeping quarters

houses." I couldn't wait (I'm a 

The idea of finally getting 
something in return for my sales 
tax, gasoline tax, utilities tax, 
and all the other little taxes

would be based on the amount 
of taxes paid by myself (a 
property owner) during the last 
fiscal year. 

Upon arriving in Gainesville, 
to my dismay, all my friends 
have accomodations off-cam- 

"But what about, you know, I 
mean, those rumors, where are 
the chicks that I pay for every 
week out of my paycheck?" I 
asked of an old buddy. 

"What on earth are you 
talking about," queried my 

friend, I went on to tell him of 
my visions of sugar plums that I 
thought danced down dormitory 
halls every hour and on the half 
hour. He began to guffaw, 
drawing attention throughout 
those in the room towards us. 

"Marc, you don't under-

stupid politicians don't realize is 
that their "Let's shack up,

just doesn't hold water."

capitalize on this are ignorant of 
the situation. I also decided 
immediately not to go to 
Gainesville, but rather to one of 
those upper-division schools 
that are written up in Esquire 
every year.

Governor Reuben Askew won both another

challenger Jerry Thomas, foisting on sour 

grapes, was asked if he intends to run for office 
again. He replied "I'm a one-time guy. I made 
my race." That's the spirit. 

Stone defeated Eckerd by the seat of his pants. 
If the fire and frimstone candidate from the 
Glades wasn't running, 1 believe Eckerd would 
have won by the seat of his pants. Under the 
Watergate circumstances, Eckerd did suprisinglyr 
well for a Republican and I predict that in his life' 
race for office he will win. 

President Ford, take notice: We the people

economy. And, we want men and women with 
integrity to do just that.

Alcoholic Rotes Rise 




Douglas Yeoman is an 
alcoholic. Doug begins each day 
by downing a can of his favorite 
beer to ward off the unpleasant 
after-effects of "the night 
before". Invariably, before 
lunch he will have finished a 
six-pack of Millers, followed by 
a Hienekens at lunch. By 
dinnertime, Doug will be on his 
third six-pack of Millers and is 
already to go for the big night 
out on the town. 

He is well-known at the local 
tavern, where he has been a 
steady customer since age 17. 
On an average night, $15 will 
pass between him and the 
barmaid, usually for screwdriv- 
ers or tequila sunrises. He 
frequently leaves in an alcoholic 
stupor, barely surviving the 
short drive home. 

Doug is easy to picture; a 
pot-bellied, blue-coUar worker 
whose wife and kids have long 
since given up nagging him 
about his drinking, right? 
Wrong. Douglas Yeoman is 21, 
a college student touted by his 
professors as full of potential 
and talent and destined to go a 
long way. 

He does not worry about his 
drinking problem - he accepts it 
as part of his daily routine, and 
even looks forward to "getting 
blown away" with his buddies. 
But unless he realizes the 
dangers involved, he's not 
going anywhere but down. 


Potpourri" Of Fashions Shown 

Asst. News Editor 

As some people see it, 
potpourri is a conglomoration of 
creative, exciting elements; 
which is exactly what the 
PBJC Sales and Marketing Club 
had in mind when "Potpourri" 
provided the theme for their 7th 
Annual Fashion Show. Nov. 7. 

Over 150 people, curious as to 
what the young collegiate set is 
wearing these days, took 
advantage of the free admission 
and attended the event. 

The show was designed as an 
in-training program for students 
interested in business and 
related fields, according to 
Ruthanna Widdows, club advi- 

"The purpose of the Fad 
Fashion Show" she explained, 
"was to give the students an 
unrestricted, entirely self-made 
opportunity for a seminar 

Twenty-eight of the club's 52 
members produced the program

outfits and commentary were 
entirely under the students 
direction. Also offering their 
help were advisors Mr. Robert 
Holzman and Mr. Robert 

"Potpourri" displayed the 
newest fashions being shown 
this season, including tennis 
wear, the western look, resort 
and evening wear, and the "Big 
Sweater Look". 

Stores contributing outfits 
included City Hall, Burdine's 
Rage to Riches, Fountains, 
Brownie's Men's Shoppe, and 
Outer Limits. 

Fashion Coordinator Louise 
Sudduth, a former fashion 
model for Sak's Fifth Avenue, 
served as project manager and 
commentator, while other club 
members served as models for 
the hour-long program. 

Doug is one of thousands ot 
college students who can be 
considered "problem drinkers" 
or alcoholics. 

According to a recent 
nationwide survey by HEW, the 
college age group of 18-24 has 
the largest proportion of 
persons who have some 
drinking-connected problems. 

Recent studies have found 
that alochol, as a drug, has 
replaced marijuana as the 
favorite among college students 
and even those younger. Easy 
availability (even those who are 
below the legal age may acquire 
booze with relatively little 
hassle), lessened parental 
pressure (parents, of course, 
prefer liquor over pot), and 
greater social acceptance are 
some of the reasons for this 

The cost is also a factor. A JC 
freshman noted that while he 
could obtain small amounts of 
pot, THC, and mescaline, for a 
few dollars (or even psilocybin 
mushrooms for free), the 
worries and criminal risk in 
getting caught were just not 
worth it. 

Beer and pop wines are the 
favorites in the 18-24 age group, 
both of which are available in 
convenience stores that almost 
never close. According to the 
HEW survey, some college 
students may have convinced 
themselves that there isn't 
high enough content 

to worry about. 

The fact is that a can of beet ' 
contains as much alcohol as the ^ 
average cocktail.. Some college • 
students (men, in particular) } 
think nothing of downing a 1 
six-pack of beer. However, i 
most would think twice before 
mixing six drinks in a ro«. | 
unless the primary purpose in i 
doing so was to get totailj ; 
plastered. [ 

Ignorance surrounding the 
subject of alcohol is shown in ' 
survey results that indicate thai ' 
only 61% of the public can be 
considered even fairly know- 
ledgeable about the physiologi 
cal effects of alcohol. And 
what's more, teetotalers ami 
light drinkers appeared to be 
better infoirmed on the dangers , 
of alcohol than their heavier 
drinking counterparts. 

People like Doluglas Yeoman 
are ignorant of the situation thai 
confronts them; either a 
reduction in the amount ol ■ 
frequency of alcohol consumer ' 
or total abstinence is necessar; ■ 
to help them. Students that use ; 
alcohol to cope with social ot [ 
academic pressures may vet)' i 
well become alcoholics, i:

Rogers Concerned Over Health 


Staff Writer 
Congressman Paul Rogers 
appeared here recently to 
discuss health care in America. 
A leading legislator in health, 
Rogers emphasized the dire 
need to implement the educat- 
ion of preventive medicine in 
our grade schools and schools of 
higher learning. 

Currently, Congress is work- 
ing on a three-part State 
Development Planning Health 

The first part is "planning" 
where local non-profit groups 
from all over Florida will form 
suggestions on how to improve 
health program. These groups 
will then meet to combine all 
constructive ideas. 

The second part of the plan is 
"Regional Medical Develop- 

The third part is the "Hill 
Burton" legislation which is a 
hospital facilities bill aiding 
hospital's bedding and the 
modernization of care for 
out-patients and emergenices. 

Some of the points discussed: 
-Spurred by a question. 

Rogers said that nutrition 
should be taught in medical 

Reform is necessary con- 
cerning medical school where as 
many as 10,000 qualified 
students are refused admission 
yearly. That, contrasted with 
the fact that one-half of today's 
new doctors are foreign medical 
grads, makes one start to 
wonder about the influence of 
the AMA . 

In New Orleans, the wings of 
one hospital are closed due to a 
shorgage of nurses. 

Another problem facing 
America is the poor distribution 
of doctors and their specialties. 
The rural and ghetto areas of 
this country are short on 
doctors. There are too many 
surgeons and not enough 
general practioners. The 
National Health Service Corpor- 
ation is a step in this direction. . 
Its plan is to train doctors, 
offering one year of school for 
one year of service in a rural 
area with salary. However, the 
corporation only receives about 
half its wanted students. 

A national health plan will 

come soon, 

Study is actively 

In response to a question 
concerning the FDA, Rogers 
said he is opposed to the view 
that vitamins, packaged' with 
more than ISO'/z of the 
individual daily requirements, 
must be sold over the counter. 

At this point, questions began 
surfacing from the audience. 
One gentleman pleased with 
Rogers as to why food additives 
cannot be thoroughly tested 
before being put on the market. 
This would elirninate or reduce 
the discoveries that pop up 
later, warning the public of their 
potential danger. 

Rogers felt that this should be 
looked into and that the 
responsibility should lie in the 
hands of the manufacturers 
when it comes to pretesting of a 

Drs. Bottosto and Yinger of 
the Social Science department 
felt the evening was a success; a 
clear display of bringing the 
government to the people.

SNA Coffee Planned 

Evening Reporter 

That busy group of girls you noticed "cooking" up things on 
campus recently was the newly organized Student Nurses' 
Association. They held a successful bake sale in front of 
Beachcoihber office last week and had everyone eating out of their 
hands. ' 

Their next big event will be a coffee tomorrow night, Tuesday at 
7:30 p.m. in SAC Lounge. All students registered in the nursing 
program are invited to attend and leanr more about the 

Faculty Advisor, Mrs. Merkle, will be on hand to assist the newly 
elected officers make everyone welcome. Kay Henrion is chairman 
of the group; her co-chairman is Al Aganowski. Other officers 
include Jeannie Woods, secretary; Cheryl Dyett, treasurer and 
Callie Johnson, projects chairman. 

Regular meeting will be lield every Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. in 
SAC Lounge. 

Many projects are being planned for the ensuing year to boost 
their treasury. Members who need financial assistance as well as 
plan social activities and maintain themselves. 

There are approximately 500 students registered in all phases of 
the nursing program. This includes a few male participants, but 
primarily the fairer sex. Presently eight representatives are on the 
executive board. Four members are from conventional classes and 
the same number from LEGS. This gives equal emphasis to both 

'Alice' Seeks Equalities For Welfare Students 

Associate Editor 

Remember Alice? 

Alice is the fed-up, divorced 
JC student who supports her 
two children through welfare. 
She's the one who cannot reveal 
her true identity to the 
Beachcomber because she is 
fearful welfare people might 
reduce her checks. 

Remember Alice? It seemed 
that no one did when Alice held 
her second organizational meet- 
ing Tuesday, October 29. The 
only persons in attendance were 
two close friends. 

Now Alice is resigned to 
fighting as a one-man army in 
hisr efforts to correct the welfare 
system, which she feels 
encourages persons NOT to 
better themselves. 

This student is not like many 
welfare mothers who sit around 
waiting for their checks each 
month. Instead, Alice is 
interested in bettering herself 
by obtaining a Basic Educatio- 
nal Opportunity Grant (BEOG) 
to further her goal of becoming 
a veterinarian. 

However, despite a statement 

in writing from the state director 
of Health, Education and 
Welfare that said the BEOG 
money was not to be counted as 
incoming funds, Alice's welfare 
check is reduced because of the 
BEOG grant. 

BEOG hassles are only one 
aspect of Alice's problem. For 
example, she is always 
concerned about coming up with 
more funds since welfare only 
pays 68% of her electric, rent, 
and phone bills. 

Another hassle is the time 
consumed in constantly verify- 
ing her spending - Alice often 
must visit the welfare people 4 
times a month. ' 'They ought to 
make allowances for students," 
she says. 

Food is a constant problem. 
The county's food stamp 
program (her welfare comes 
from the state) is based on 1968 
prices, according to Alice. The 
price of milk has shot up more 
than a dollar per ^on since 
1968, and is still rising. . 
.Alice's food stamps aren't. 

Food stamps do not allow for 
personal hygiene items. 
Hygiene is certainly a must for 

Alice, since she is working 
part-time as a veterinarian's 
aide. While she is at work and 
school her two children are 
becoming cluttered, rumpled, 
and dirtied at a local day-care 

Through all these problems, 
Alice is just seeking a quiet, 
private, and full life for herself 
and two children. She contends 
that "you never have a private 
life while you're on welfare. 

"They (welfare workers) tell 
you 'of course you have sex.* 
Then before you can say 
anything, they tell you to go to 
the Abortion clinic!" 

At the first meeting to 
organize some support for the 
students-on-welfare cause, one 
woman contended that welfare 
workers "had the nerve to 
accuse me of encouraging my 16 
year old daughter to become 
pregnant so I could get more 
money coming in." 

While laughing at the welfare 
worker's accusation, the wo- 
man, almost in disgust, thou^t 
aloud, "I would think they 
would give you a little more for 
trying to improve yourself." 

Unfortunately, the woman 
and others with the same strong 
sentiments who were at the first 
meeting could not join Alice at 
the second organizational meet- 

Alice had hoped to set up 
some type of organization to 
help those welfare recipients 
that go to school - an 
organization that could collect- 
ively go to school officials and 
local politicians for help. 

Not totally distraught by the 
poor October 29 turnout, Alice 
still intends to fight for her 

"I don't want to live in a 


$2.7S par i 

castle," Alice commented 
recently. "I just want to 
support my kids."

Record Review 

On "Thrust" 

^ Jimmy Neil — ' 

Herbie Hancock, long time composer and jazz man, and expert 
manipulator of many sundry layers of keyboards has recently 
released his newest album on Columbia Records entitled "Thrust", 

As composer and keyboard man with Miles Davis from 1953 to 
1968, Hancock long ago made his mark in the jazz community and 
afterwards began putting out solo albums. 

' Today Hancock heads the most sought-after jazz combo in the 
U.S. His previous LP, "Head Hunters", has sold more copies than 
any other album by a jazz performer. 

Lately, he has been getting more into funky material influenced 
by such commercial black performers as Marvin Gaye, Sly Stone, 
and Stevie Wonder and combining it with his past years with Miles 
Davis. The result is a jazz-rock being one of the most exuberant, 
rich and versatile brands of music to come along since the heyday of 
the Stones and the Beatles. 

Side two's "Butterfly" reflects most vividly the great Davis 

Appearing om "Thrust", Paul Jackson on electric bass, Mike Clark 
on drums, Bill Summers on percussion, Bennie Maupin on all saxes, 
flutes, and clarinets, and of course H.H. on electric piano, ciarinel, 
raellotron, and various synthesizers. 

Maupin recently released his solo LP,a Flower In The Lotus". 

"Thrust" is a perfect and prime example of the countless, infinite 
possibilities held by jazz and unleashed by Hancock who boasts a 
proficient style of playing all his own. You will surely hear a group 
ever-flowing with plenty of color and balance. 

The album is full of rich improvisations which are the backbone of 
the music. Each instrumentalist's ability to create a melody and 
then take off and dismember it to varying degrees of force and 
fluctuation without losing any feeling, produces a very deep 
dimension to each piece. In fact, in all the funkiness a certain 
tranquil quality is often felt. 

Feeling and dimension these two terms best describe what 
"Thrust's" music is all about. 

Hancock's "Thrust" is an electronic jazz extravaganza that 
should apeal to the black soul crowd, jazz buffs, and to most rocleti 
as well.

'Frankly Speaking 

Free Entertainment At AV Center 

'Frank Smith- 

There is a lot of entertainment 
here at PBJC. Some of it costs a 
lot, but then some of it is free. 
"Free?" someone asks. 
"Free." I answered, "It's a 
good deal if you can find it." 
". . And you found it?" that 
same persons asks. "Yes," I 
answered adding, "I found it 
very pleasing. It can be found 
by anyone down on the first 
floor of the library." 

"You mean the Audio-Visual 
Room?" someone else asked 

"Yeah. A lot of people think 
that all they have down there is 
instructional tapes, but a lot of 
times people forget that they 
often can have fun learning." I 
pointed out. 

"Name one tape down there 
that would be fun to watch." I 
was challenged.

interested in the sciences would 
probably enjoy watching "The

future through Alvin Toffler's

"Furthermore," I continued 
"People who have an interest in 
music can enjoy a flick called, 

'Discovering Electronic Music' 
or one called, 'Music of Japan',

"How about us writers? Do 
you have anything for us literary 
freaks?," the first someone 
questions me. 

"They have a film on 'Spoon

"It probably would!" He 
exclaimed, surprised. . ."and

"Absolutely!" I declared, but

Carlin Displays Wit 


Anyone who can comment on 
the humorous side of life better 
than Mark Twain or Will Rogers 
is George Carlin. He has been 
described as the "Will Rogers 
of the Atomic Age." 

Carlin is best known from his 
albums, "Class Clown" and 
"AM/FM". In these two 
recordings are the combination 
of his fast talking and creative 

This Friday evening's pro- 
gram started with a warnjup 
group called Travis Shoo|^ and 
the Club Wow. Their show 
consisted of two dudes who 
played the guitar and sang 
corny songs. One of their 
selections consisted of a song 
dedicated to minerals, simply 
because they felt that "there 
was one field the current 'rock' 

scene had not touched upon." 
Carlin's performance was 
totally opposite to those seen on 
TV. He was extremely informal. 
His show consisted of material 
picked at random about God, 
Catholicism phrases and words 
we take for granted or never use 
and drugs. 

The show was very funny and 
Carlin simply amazed everyone 
with the continuous flow of his 
new and witty material. As if 
this were not enough, Carlin 
displayed another talent. He 
played a mean honky-tonk

Optimism Soars 

Sports Editor 

Size and speed are the key words to this year's JC basketball 
squad, according to head coach Bob Wright. 

The head mentor is beginning his fourth season at the reigns of 
JC s roundball team, which finished second in the state last season. 

"We're bigger than any other team we've had here," "We're 
equal witli experience and inexperience." 
Wright said his club has speed as well as bench strength. 

"The team seems to be working harder," he says. "We're not as 
far back as last year because of our experience." 

He cited Donald Burns, Bill brandon, Dick Rousche and Guy 
Poyastro as key people in the Pacers' state competition hopes. 

With three out of the five starters 
back from last year's 22-7 club, 
Wright feels he has an even better 
team this year. The squad misses 
the presence of Keith Highsmith 
who was selected as a junior college 

Speaking of Division IV this year, 
Wright says it will be a toss up 
between six schools.

"Competition will be strong in the conference," he says. 
"(Miami Dade) South, (Miami Dade) North, IRCC, Broward 
Central, (Broward) North, and PBJC are all strong. 

"It's a much stronger league all the way across the board." 

Before coming to JC, Wright coached in Kentucky. His high 
school coaching days shewed a 300 plus win record against slightly 
over 70 defeats. 
'Since coming to JC, his teams have won 63 and lost 25.

were not available at press time. 

"We seem to be improving 
after every round," Daughtery 
adds, "our last four-man total in 
competition was 296, our lowest 
of the year by five shots." 

If the team keeps improving 
the Pacers could be a strong 
contender when Broward puts

Faculty Senate Votes Repeal 

News Editor 

Faculty senators overwhel- 
tningly voted in favor of a Math 
Department resolution repeal- 
ing an' unconstitutional decision 
to reveal Instructor of Distinct- 
ion scores. 

The resolution stated in part, 
"Faculty senators are elected to 
represent the views of their 
departments but had no 

opportunity to consult their 
departments and in as much 
that the vote on this matter was 
taken on the first reading in 
direct violation of the senate 
constitution, the Math Depart- 
ment does on record that this 
vote should be declared null and 

In opposition to the resolut- 
ion. Dr. Samuel Bottoato 
compared' the faculty senate 

with the U.S. Congress by 
saying, "We have been to many 
wars without any declaration of 
war by congress. Don't tell me 
we have to be slaves to a certain 
body of rules and regulaticMis by a 
fellow named Roberts (Roberts 
Rules of Order). I can show you 
where he says himself that it is 
the consent of the group." 

"I don't think that we need to 

declare the previous decision 
null and void," added Bottosto. 
The Math Department was 
asked to clarify their position, 
and they replied, "Our feeling 
was that it (IDA motion) should 
have been open to discussion; 
let the departments advise their 
people then come back to vote." 

The Math Department re- 
solution was the result of a vote 

Students were given the opportunity to farther 
understand the fight against abortion when the 
Palm Beach County Right to Life League visited 
the Lucy booth on November 12. 

The Right to Life League Is a. volunteer, 
non-profit organization geared to publicize the 
value of human life. They serve the needs of the 
women who elect to continue her pregnancy; 
while trying to alleviate counseling, medical, and 
economic problems. They also operate a crisis 
Life Line [842-4621], which offers emergency 
services to those in need. 

While at JC, the organization distributed 

pamplets to the students. They feel the more ^ 
Informed one is on the issue, the better equipped § 
she will be to make a decision ™ 

Some students, however, feel that the cafeteria g 
is a poor place to present their case. Requesting S 
the booth be moved, they cited the presentation S 
as being "untactful" and "unappetizing". S 

Volunteers for the program are jtrained hi a 5 
special course given by Dr. Alsofrom, Volunteer a 
Trainfaig Center Director. s 

The Right to Life League also gives a variety of S 
talks and presentations to various organizations g 
throughout the county 

taken at the previous senate 
meeting concerning a motion to 
reveal to the individual faculty 
member his IDA score. That 
motion was passed following a 
lengthy debate, with only one 
reading in the senate. The vote 
was in violation of the 
constitution which requires that 
a vote not be taken until after a 
second reading at a subsequent 

Mr'. Gross, a former member 
of the senate, objected to the 
Math Department proposal. 
"There were many instances-, 
where a second reading was not 
necessary. This was nothing 
more than a move to clarify the 
duties and responsibilities of the 
committee," Gross told the 

Mr. Schmiederer reminded 
the senate that they were there 
to represent the entire faculty, 
"We didn't do that; we didn't 
do what they elected us to do on 

The issue of revealing the 
IDA scores is now back before 
the senate and at their next 
meeting a second reading will 
take place. 

In other business, straws 
were drawn to determine the 
length of office of the current

Too Few Resolutions 

Senators Told Wasting Time

The Student Government 
Senate was accused Thursday of 
wasting time and doing an 
inadequate job for the student 

"You waste a lot of time," 
said Dan Hendrix, Ex-Offlcio

He told senators to "get out

with students to see what they 
want done. 

Hendrix got involved in the

has a good SG and he is tired of 
seeing "lousy" senates. He 
said too many i senators expect to 
reach the top in politics without 
working to get there. Hendrix

Wanted: One Book Drop 

Staff Writer 

Student Government's Executive Board 
appropriated $100 for a downstairs book drop and 
discussed extending the library's , hours during 
the week of exams, at the November 12 meeting. 

A book drop would be a great convenience for 
students, according to SG Vice-President Dolor 

"Students can drop books off oh the way to 
class or the parking lot without having to go 
upstairs," he noted. 

The east side of the Business Administration 
Building is the planned site of this operation. 

A motion was passed to appropriate $100 for 
materials, while the Administration absorbs the 
remaining cost. Construction will be done by 


Mr. Daniel Hendrix, a member of the SG 
Advisory Committee, said that the Administra- 
tion should take care of funds for the book drop, 
and it should not come from SG's budget. 

Executive Board members diiscussed the 
feasibility of extending the library's hours on 
school nights and Saturday and Sunday during 
exam week. 

Mr. Arnold Freedman, Chairman of the 
Advisory Committee, commented that the 
library's hours should be extended year round. 

Cost of personnel is a problem. It was 
suggested that volunteer students could work in 
the library during the extra hours, along with 
limited personnel. 

No definite decision has been reached to date.

Enrollment will be approximately the same for the winter- 
term as it was for the fall term. Accordhig to Registrar, 
Laurence Mayfield, there will not be much difiference except 
the possibility of a slight decrease. 

2859 students had registered as of Wednesday November 
13. Mayfield comments that many of the day students are not 
sure whether or not they are retumhig for the whiter term. 
M*ayfield believes this is one of the best and smoothest 
registrations, as there were no long lines. [Ha, Ha, Has]. 
Many of the 2859 registered students have not yet pidd their 
fees. Mayfield notes that if these fees a^ not paid by 
December 27 their schedule will be cancelled.

Registration A-OK 

Both pre-registration and registration at JC usually brings a wave 
of criticism and complaints that flood the registrar's office. 
However, the pre-registration for the winter term went speedily and 
fairly well. Compliments must go to Registrar Lawrence Mayfield 
for a job well done. 

Scheduling classes was a breeze; howevet, several students 
complained of conflicts that should have been avoided. For 
example, the Public Speaking course needed for graduation of 
Journalizm A.A. students is in direct conflict with Journalism 201, 
an advanced laboratory class. 

Though errors are hard to avoid, it seems that for a college this 
size, major ones can be thwarted. Once again, Congrats go to the 
Registrar's office and staff for a job well done.

Lucy's Booth 
Aborts Appetite 

The entrance to the JC cafeteria became 
reminicseni of the goriest scenes in "The 
E.\orcist" when a Lucy Booth debuted under the 
guidance of the "Right to Life" League. 

Stomachs turned and appetites disappeared 
when students ^ were conlVonted with eight 
full-color photographs of babies and aborted 
fetuses. The league, which has taken a very 
strong stand against abortion, is entitled to its 
opinion, but the- cheap shock value methods 
utilized in getting their point across are just that 
cheap. Granted, playing on people's emotions 
and .sympathy is an way to achieve support, 
but the approach taken was simply in very poor 

A complaint made by students was sufficient to 
change the booth's location away from the 
cafeteria entrance, but the conduct of the persons 
operating the booth continued. A "Lucy Booth" 
is theoretically a place where interested students 
can gel questions answered; booth operators 
continually violated this by standing directly in 
the hallway, stopping people who weren't 
interested, and getting into arguments while 
attempting to further their cause. 

Standards should be set to prevent the 
misconduct of invited guests and groups on 
campus. Also, material and preseniaiinn 
approaches should be previewed in order to 
establish the proper areas in which these booths 
should be set up. Bloody. aborted feiuscs, with

Early Childhood Development (EN-110) is

APartial Picture 


Once again the Beachcomber has resorted to 
the abhorrent policy of providing the students of 
PBJC with only a partial picture of newsworthy 
events on campus. The most recent example of 
this is the editorial appearing in the November 
11, 1974, issue entitled "Honorable?". 

The entire editorial is erroneous; from the 
misleading introduction that, "The Student 
Government Senate has taken it upon 
themselves. . .to award honorariums and special 
privileges for each member of the Senate," to the 
ludicrous implication that no type of ". . 
.supervision over who gets the money, , ." has 
been established. 

The students of PBJC should have been told 
that all members of the Executive Board now 
receive honorariums. And that members of the 
Beachcomber staff receiving about $1000.00 PER 
TERM of "special privileges", not to mention 
students in Athletics. The point is that the 
Student Government Senators simply want equal 
spoils for equal toils. 

The argument, as presented in the editorial 
concerning why the Senators feel the 
honorariums are warranted is a blatant lie. The 
Senators feel the honorariums wilt enhance the 
continuity of the Senate, and therefore provide 
more beneficial legislation. 

There is one sentence in this editorial which is 

"Senators serve the students because they 
want to, not because of a token sum of monev." 

( l^BVBrbBrafiom ) 

\iXiMmmimmiiiii— I iiin ii ii m i m n ummmt^tmimt^mmie 

Why does the Beachcomber fail to serve the 
students by not reporting all the facts regarding 
Senatorial honorariums';" Could it be that greed 
overshadowed those who are so "Honorable?" 

Dave Upshaw 
SG Senator 


It seems that no one can be completely happy 
with the campus radio, WRAP. 1 have read at 
least two derogatory articles concerning the 
station in the Beachcomber. 1 am amazed at the 
plasticity of the complaints. 

Obviously, all the people can't be pleased all 
the time. But instead of trying to put down 
something that was.started for the students, why 
not look at the good aspects of it? 

The music is of good variety and ai a noise 
level that is not as loud as suggested in the 
previously mentioned articles. When asking 
friends who study and socialize in the cafeteria, 1 
have found few complaints about the station. 

So instead of complaining, why not "get Jt 
together" and enjoy the station. After all, isn't 
that the purpose of it?

Feminist Chivalry 

— '. — J. Michele Natter- 

Fee Meeting Due 

Quick! Think of the Middle 
Ages! Castles, crusades. King 
Arthur, Guinevere, knights, 
ladies. , .and chivalry. 

The feminist movement and 
chivalry have somehow become 
inexplicably tied. Chivalry is 
linked with love and respect; 
therefore, by losing chivalry,' a 
wom£in loses love and respect. 
Amazing! Who would have 
thought the "Battle of the 
Doors" could cause so much 

Why should the threat of loss 
of vestige chivalry be so great? 
Because the concept of love that 
supportis it is a unique and 
fundamental creation of thou- 

Important things happened to 
this concept during the Middle 
Ages, among them was the 
codification of attitudes toward 

Ladies were put on a 
pedestal, virtuous, beautiful 
and gracious (sounds more like 
a goddess,than a flesh and blood 

Unfortunately, this definition 
was applied only to the female 
aristocracy. What about the 
other 95!4% of the female 

Perhaps it is best put into 
words by the monk of 
IVIontandum (1180 - 1213): 

"And I hold that woman to be 
a bore 

Who is both poor and 
disdainful. . . 

And I am bored, by Saint Aon 
By a broad woman with a 
narrow cleft.,'.' 

Obviously" (here are, two 
definitions of wonien presented 
here. Perhups the comments by 
John Benton on courtly love 
clarify the necessity of chivalry. 
"Whateftects did the canons 
of courtesy iiavo on the status of 
vvonien.' Courtesy was created 
lor men for their own

sexual or otherwise. 

Since they did not encourage 
a genuine respect for women as 
individuals, the conventions of 
medieval chivalry did not 
advance women toward legal or 
social emancipation." 

To continue this train of 
thought, chivalry denotes res- 
pect, respect leads to love, to be 
loved one must be feminine. 

Love is having a door open for 
you. I wonder who said, "I'd 
rather have equal pay and be 
able to employ a doorman?" 

It could be that rising cries of 
fetninism pose a serious threat; 
the placebo of love and chivalry 
are being trotted out again, 
brushed up and polished. 

Certainly morally uplifting, 
love was just one of many 
sentiments expressed about 
women during the Middle Ages. 
It was not universal, it appiied 
only to noble wonien. It made 
no positive changes for the 
reality of live of medieval 

Today ihis concept has been 
selei'ted from our past; it is 
univeis;i!ly tnuted. its benefit to 
uoniankind extrollcd. 

This cuncept of love offers 
women a false sense of power, it 
restricts the ways which men 
must deal with women to a 
narrow dimension of human 
capacity and it permits men to 
discoiiiit the competency of 
women in men's iibscncc. 


Associate Editor 

Having received Board of 
Trustee approval of his activity 
fee plan at' the October 16 
board meeting, SG President 
Tory Buckley feels that a 
meeting of thie Student Activity 
Fee Committee could come 
early in the 'Winter Term. 

One reason for the earlier 
meeting is that the committee 
must project how many students 
will be in attendance for the 
1975-76 school year. Since 
organization budgets must be 
turned in to various JC 
departments in early spring, a 
percentage allocation could not 
be used, accoi^ing to Buckley. 
"The only thing you can do is 
project the amount of enroll- 
ment or credit hours taken," 
comments Buckley. "What you 
have to base it on is the year 
before and the year before 
that." • 

Another reason for an early 
winter meeting is dissention 
over the second part of the 
Buckley plan in vvhich all monies 
left over at the end of the school 
year will revert back to the 
organization's budget. 

JC President Dr. Harold C. 
Maiioi had wanted the monies 
to revert back to the general 
fund, and following defeat of his 
proposal said, "the students 
might as well spend it anyway." 

SG President Buckley is 
concerned about contentions 
from Manor and others that the 
niuiiey niight be allocated 

Shkiy G-r^VQ" 







According to Buckley, "The 
committee will definitely look at 
the budgets of all organizations 
probably a little more closely so 
we can avoid any kind, of 
contentions over not spending 
money wisely." 

The Student Activity Fee 
Committee is composed of 
advisors and student represen- 
tatives from athletics. Student 
Government, the Beachcomber, 
Media, Galleon, Assemblies 
Committee, and also two SG 
senators and one member of the 
SG Executive Board. 

resolutions committee swamped 
with resolutions," said Senator 
Dave Upshaw. "I would like to 
see this floor soking from the 
debate on any good issue." 

As far as revising the student 
body constitution, Senator Rob 
Abrams, chairperson of the 
Constitutional Amendments 
Committee, said "We still 
operate under the present 
constitution and we are still 
bound to this constitution." 

The constitution does not 
specifically state impeachment 
proceedings. Ginchereau said 
the Constitutional Amendments 
Committee would work on that 
problem. The committee will 
look at other college constitut- 
ions and come up with a 
complete method for impeach- 
ment of SG officials. 

The senate passed a Constit- 
utional Amendment, 17 - 1, 
which allows the Seante to pass 
an amendment by two-thirds 
vote of all Senators voting and 
present at senate meetings. 
The amendment, written by Bill 
Penney and Rob Abrams, is 
being sent to the College 
Activity Committee for appro- 
val. If the coiiimittee approves 
the amendment, it will then 
have to be ratified by the 
student body in an election. 

Dan Buckley was sworn in as 
a senator Thursday. He took the 
oath of office and is now an 
official senator. 

After eight Senate sessions, 
three resolutions, one Bill of 
Appropriations, and several 
Constitutional Amendments left 
over from last year have been

Gardens Cenfer Not Inactive 

Evening Reporter 

It is an interesting surprise to note all the 
activity revolving in our North Center. Many of 
the classes are strictly academic and comparable 
to the main campus. On the other hand, you will 
find proportionately more community activities at 
the Palm Beach center. 

Aroma from cooking classes welcomes you as 
you approach the main corridor. You might hear 
the beating of drums or a choral offering from 
a'far. All of this is housed in Palm Beach Gardens 
High School except the main office which is an 
elaborate mobile home west of the building. A 
portion of the school is in barracks, which adjoin 
main structure. 

Evening students may here fulfill JC 

requirements for comprehensive subjects such as 
Freshman Communications, Principles of 
Biology, Healthful Living, General Math and 
many others from term to term, 

Robert D'Angio is evening coordinator of this 
"jumping" place and keeps everything well 
organized. Also involved in this very busy 
organization is Richard Ferrara, director of 
community activities. Many offerings of the 
latter classification are non-credit but serve other 
useful purposes in the community, such as first 
aid, art, decoupage, handicrafts, and anything 
that is in great demand. 

For students living in that end of the city, the 
Gardens is really a great convenience.

Sociology Studies 

Cindy Cowen. 

Are you an "idea" person? Does your imagination at times carry 
you a little out of reality? Are you a sociable person and one wlio 
gets off on understanding what makes a person tick? To sum it up, 
if mankind and the study of human behavior 'intrigues you, you may 
inevitably some day wish to make the sociological study of your 

Public relations is a field so many of us use ourselves 
(nonprofessionally) every day just in dealing with fellow mates and 
adults - bot those we like and dislike. Public relations personnel arc 
dealing with ideas and people all the time. A good public relations 
man is creative, able to mix well socially and able to converse on a 
variety of subjects. He should also be outgoing and able to evaluate 
people and situations, and above all, he must have good judgement 
and leadership qualities to inspire and teach his fellow workers and 

Public relations workers are responsible for developing and 
maintaining public opinion favorable to the organizations |uang 
their services. They have become valued as advisers on policy in 
the organizations where they work. A good Public Relations 
program takes into consideration the likes, dislikes, needs, and 
interests of the public in attempting to win their approval of a client, 
product, or service represented 'by the public relations man. 

Employment can be found in such places as: schools, hospitals, 
information services, trade and professional organizatioris, 
legislative lobbying, commercial and industrial firms, advertising 
agencies, and many more. Most trainees in public relations work 
receive starting salaries of about $6,000 ot $8,000 and after several 
years experience can be earning as much as $25,000 and on up , 
Public relations in the state of Florida is certainly vastly iniportant 
for the obvious reason that so many of our population originates 
from all over the country, and in addition - we all are aware of the 
rapid expansion and growth of this state in industry, technology, 

Though public relations is a relatively new field, courses are 
offered at PBJC and other junior colleges throughout the U.S. as a 
major, public relations courses should fall under journalism, 
business, or liberal arts. 

The courses would include subjects concerning: psychology, 
political science, history, sociology, anthropology, public speaking, 
and in some cases, marketing, business, and advertising. 

In conclusion: the "complete" public relations man must 
continue to be a perennial student in the art- and science of public 
opinion and communication as they apply in public relations.

'Comber Play Review 

Ploy Foils To Move 

Entertainment Co-Editor 

"The Sign In Sidney 
Brustein's Window" was a play 
of much action. The action, 
however did not take place 
physically but rather verbally. 

There was a lot to be heard by 
those people willing to listen but 
little to see for those people 
expecting visual action. The 
little physical action that was 
there was expressionistic act- 
ions often used by conversat- 
ionalists, such as hand motions 
facial expressions, and pacing 
back and forth. 

Unfortunately, all that the 
play consisted of was conver- 

Granted, what conversation 
was there was interesting, 
presenting many interesting 

phrases, and much witticism. 

Iris Brustein, portrayed very 
well with close character 
identification by Karen Moore, 
made a memorable statement 
when she spoke of going to an 
audition. Iris was a bad actress 
but in her own eyes she was 
good. She made the statement, 
"No matter how hard you try, 
you can never do it (the scene) 
as good as you did the night 
before, in front of the mirror." 
This statement is very interest- 
ing in that it points out how Iris, 
when looking at herself through 
the mirrors eyes (or her own 
eyes) considers herself a good 
actress, but when she looks at 
herself through the eyes of the 
producer at the audition, she 
sees herself as he does, a bad 

Gloria Parodus is an unhappy 
hooker in the play. She is 
puzzled by how people often 
believe they have to do things 
they really don't want to. This 
is interesting because she is a 
prostitute though she doesn't 
want to be. "The things people 
think they have to do. ." she 
. states. 

Gloria was portrayed rather 
effectively by Kitty Albertson. 

All through the play the 
characters made intellectual 
comments which directly refle- 
cted their positions in life. 

The play was very intellectu- 
ally orientated. Those who do 
not feel like examining every 
line for its hidden meanings 
would find it relatively point- 
less. Not much happened! The 
characters go together and 

The remaining characters all 
had their moments of witticism. 

Sidney Brustein was played 
by Joe Redon who did a good job 
.for his' first appearance on 
stage, Alton Scales was 
characterized well by Keith 
:Cooper. Mavis Parodus was a 
very nice character that was

''Odessa" Different 




In the current wa've of 
nostalgia and disaster movies, 
we have a change of pace: ' 'The 
Odessa File." 

This former number one best 
seller brings us the story of a 
personal manhunt for a Nazi 
executioner who is living under 
an alias somewhere in Ger- 

The intrigue of the movie 
involves Jon Voight, the film's 
star, finding a book telling about 
a secret underground organiza- 
tion of Nazi members. These 
men live under aliases so they 
won't be prosecuted for war 
crimes they committed during. 
Hitler's mass executions. 

As Voight tries to track one of 
these men down, he learns that 
someone is trying to stop him. 

After an attempt on his life, 
he is kidnapped by an 
underground Israeli group. He 
is persuaded to disguise himself 
as a former Secret Service (SS) 
member and infiltrate Odessa, 
exposing the members and 

convicting the ones who were 
responsible for carrying out 
Hitler's war atrocities • 

Voight does this surprisingly 
fast and to top it off he pinpoints 
the man he's after in a matter of 
days. Then comes the climactic 
moment when Voight meets him 
eye to eye. They both exchange 
philosophies and the ending is 
surprising but not shocking. 

The action seems to be taken 
out of spy movies and there are 
at least three humorous parts in 
the whole film. 

What the film has going for it 
is intrigue and exceptional 
settings. Although the story 
and action sound over-used, the 
.stoiy is interesting and realistic. 

The filming is beautiful, 
making full use of Germany's 

many new and old settings 
combined with modern camera 
angles and techniques. 

This is Voight's best 
performance since "Midnight 
Cowboy." Would you believe 
he speaks broken English 
throughout the movie? 

With the prices of films 
nowadays, it becomes harder 
and harder to occasionally see 
movies. "The Odessa File", 
like any other, has its own 
appeal to its own audience in it's 
own way.

Pacers Entertain 
Sallfish In Debut 


Sports Writer 

With the desire to return to 
liie state tournament embedded 
in *iitnr brains, the Pacer 
basketball team opens the 
season Wednesday night 
against Palm Bc.ich Atlantic's 
.(V team. 

Tip-ofl IS slated for 7:30 p.m. 
with ihu doors opening at p.m. 
rickets are $1 for adults and JC 
students with ID get in free. 

The home opener against the 
Sailfish is the only contest on 
ihe JC hardwood until Dec. 14. 
The F^acers travel to Seminole 
Saturday night and play in two 
lournaments over the Thanks- 
giving break. 

Beginning his fourth year at 
the helm. Bob Wright comes off 
his most successful year (22-7) 
with a dub of depth, speed and 

"I probably won't know until 
Tuesday night who I'll start," 
commented Wright. 

Battling for the two forward 
positions are Miguel (Gus) 
Poyastro, a 6'6" sophomore 
from Akron, Ohio; Bill Brandon, 
co-captain, a 6'3" sophomore 
from Twinshurg, Ohio; and 
Victor,.a b'5" freshman 
from Cleveland, Ohio. 

Poyastro was selected to the 
All F.ICC State Tournament 
team last year. Brandon started 
about 3/4 of last year's season 
and has a .soft touch and 
good quickness according to the 

In the middle will be either 
Richard "Tiny" Mitchell, a 7' 
sophomore from Taylor, Michi- 

gan: or Richard Nelson, a 6'4" 
sophomore jumping-jack from 
Riviera Beach. 

The best race is at guard. 
Four men are to see plenty of 
action. Donald Burns, a 6'3" 
hometown .sophomore, is said to 
have the quickest hands in 
town. Cunningham, a 6' 
lieshman from mount Sterling, 
Kv., is possibly the best shooter 
on the club. Mike Gibbs, a 
5' 10" freshman, also from 
Mount Sterling, is another 
prospect to replace Ail-Ameri- 
can Keith Highsmith, Letter- 
man Dick Rousche, a 6'3" 
sophomore from Cincinnati, is 
an excellent clutch player, 

"A starting position on our 
ball club is not that important 

Fowl Event 

because we substitute. We play 
everybody," said Wright. 

Balance has been a JC 
trademark as evidenced by six 
players in double figures last 
sea.son. Four of those six have 
returned along with several top 
recruits. This gives the Pacers a 
formidable nucleus to build 

Wright commented that 
Coach George Perides' Sailfish 
have a well-disciplined club. 
"We had a tough time beating 
them last year." 

Saturday the Pacers travel to 
Sanford to tangle with Semi- 
nole. "Joe Sterling always does 
a good job," Wright commen- 
ted. "They've been in the state 
tournaments every year." 

Karen Anderson is one of eight Pacer cheerleaders for the 
1974-75 basketball season.

Thursday. Nov. 21, on the 
jogging course. It is open to

The Turkey Trot which has 
liccii a traditional event around 
riianksgiving lor the past five 
years, is changing its ibrm this 

The format which used to 
consist of running the jogging 
course, with the winners being 
decided by who was the fastest, 
has been changed to give 
everybody a chance. 

At every quarter-mile pole the 
contestants must answer three 
questions dealing with sports 
activities. For each question 
answered contestants will be 
given a symbol, and they must 
have nine symbols when they 
ero,ss the finish line since there 

will be three quarter-mile poles 
on the mile long course. 

Coach Roy Bell, Intramural 
director, hopes to increase on 
the previous high of thirty-six 
contestants participating. 

The Turkey Trot which has 
usually been divided into four 
divisions, a men's and women's 
student and a men's and 
women's faculty, will just be an 
open competition this year.

running high for a big season, 
including a trip to the national

After listening to Burns, one 
might conclude that the Pacers 
have already made it. 
According to the West Palm

hard to .schedule opponents 
because peopple were scared to

were reluctant to schedule JC 
might be newcomers Richard

partner, "WhileQbbsis not as

Many of Gibbs' passes may 
be directed at the Pacers' 7 - 
center Mitchell, a transfer 
student from Taylor. Michigan. 
Likewise. Burns is high on him. 

JC Coach Wright commented 
following the Chipola loss that 
"We weren't getting enough 
rebounds." and Burns feels that 
the presence of "Tiny" in the 
middle should eliminate the

* Six Common Mistakes Of Amateurs [ 

Timothy L.Braym 

Around the clay courts, 
familiar expressions are heard 
such as "She's got the 
backhand of Billie Jean," or 
"His serve is as hard as Jimmy 
Connors'." Even, "His mouth 
is worse than lUe Nastase's." 

But for us twice a week tennis 
advocates, no real comparison 
can be drawn. They're pro's 
and let's face it, we're duffers. 
Consequently, we should not 
lay as if we're pro's. 

Recently Converse circulated 

pamphlet explaining the six 
lost common mistakes of a 
fvice a week tennis player. 

The first mistake is taking the 

Actually, few players warm 
p sufficiently. Hitting a few 
alls against the backboard is 
ot enough. Jumping jacks, 
'oodchoppers or any other 
alisthenics loosen up all of the 
ght muscles. 

Secondly, too many players' 
irst service is "faster than a 
peeding bullet." Then, when 
hat fails to get in, they play 
latty cake. The object of the 

game is to beat your opponent, 
not yourself. 

As is common to the baseball 
pitcher, the smart players will 
keep their opponent off balance 
and confused with steady placed 

The third common mistake, 
according to the pamphlet, is 

"... firsi 
ioking the 

playing for the big shots. Let 
your opponent thank God after 
pushing one down the line, 
hitting the outside part of the 

Sooner or later, your 
oppojient will beat himself. 

Common mistake number 
four involves the "Killer 
Complex." Most twice a 
weekers hit the overhead 
smash, try to hit the ball twice 
the speed of sound, and usually 
watch it sail over the fence. 
Re-emphasized is that the 
steady shots are the best shots. 

Mistake number five is 
playing doubles is not the same 
as playing singles. The key to 
playing doubles is strategy and 
control of the net. The best way 
in which to learn more about 
doubles is to read books about 
the subject and consult a pro. 

The final mistake, as outlined, 
is thinking that you're number 
one and no one can tell you how 
to play tennis. No player in the 
country outgrows the advice of 
an experienced coach or a pro. 

The six most common 
mistakes were put together by 
the United States Professional 
Tennis Association.

SG Looks ForStudent Gripes 

Staff Writer 

Student Government's Senate agreed Thursday to 
set up a Grievance Committee which would allow any 
JC student an opportunity to present gripes or give 
suggestions on what SG can do for the student body. 

Senator Sam Putt came up with the idea and said "I 
feci that a Grievance Committee where students can 
come if they have a grievance, would be, for the Senate, 
a window from the students to the Senate" 

Putt feels that Senators should be outgoing and not 
afraid to talk to people. 

SG President Tory S, Buckley, concurred, saying SG 
is "to serve" the .students. "I think we have all failed 
in that mission," Buckley said. The President said SG 
has an "open door" policy for all JC students. 

Referring to the Grievance Committee, Buckley said 
"You're not going to get the people to come to you. 

Three or four people do not represent the student 
body," added Buckley. 

Senator Dave Upshaw introduced a resolution stating 
that SG has not been representing the student body and 
that is an impeachable offense Therefore, the entire 
SG should be impeached. 

Upshaw feels SG has not been representing the 
students as well as it should. 

"I feel each one of us has let down the student 
body," said Upshaw. Ginchereau told Senators to get 

"What we need is for the Senate to get down to 
business, stop this internal bickering, and lets get on to 
work," Ginchereau stated. 

Ginchereau wants Senators to introduce resolutions 
that are meaningful for the student body. 
"If we fail to do that, the student body will lose faith 

in SG," roared Ginchereau. 

Ginchereau ended by saying "I will continue to 
push. I might make enemies along the way but that's 
the situation. Shape up or ship out." 

After debate ended on the impeachment resolution, 
Upshaw withdrew it saying it would be Impossible to 
impeach the entire SG, because there is no Judicial 
Board and it would be "ludicrous" to think of such a 

The Senate introduced a resolution that if passed 
would end the JC Attendance Policy. The policy states 
no student be allowed to miss over 25 percent of any 
class without receiving an "F" grade. The resolution 
was sent to the Resolutions Committee for research and 
will be read next week along with six other resolutions 
that were not read Thursday. 

Senators will not receive a $50 honorarium this term 
because SG doesn't have enough money in its budget.

Students may no longer be

whether they can still rely upon

What are the facts behind the 

Flying Saucer reports? Is an 

alien intelligence involved? If 

so, what is their motivation? 

In a paper presented to the 
Pennsylvania Sociological Soc- 
iety meeting, in Philadelphia on 
November 2, ' Dr. Richard 
Yinger, one of JC's Social 
Science teachers, suggested 
that the term "Exosociology" 
be used to suggest the 
investigation of extraterrestral 
life and its possible implications 
on our planet. 

"At the present," Dr. Yinger 
told his colleagues, "biologists 
and astromoners are the 
primary characters involved in 
speculations about extrater- 
restrial life. Surely, this is a 
field of study far more Suited to 
the sociological enterprise." 

In developing his ideas. Dr. 
Yinger pointed to a growing 
belief in many different 
scientific fields that extrater- 

restrial life is not only possible, 
but probable. 

"If we are timid, we may well 
find ourselves in the embarras- 
sing situation of scrambling to 
do some studies after the fact of 
extraterrestrial life has been 

Yinger's hypothesis includes 
the visiting life preparing Earth 
for its contact by launching a 
massive public relations cam-

Digest, TV Guide and the 
National Geographic as im- 
plements they will attempt to 
portray life from other planets 
as being intelligent and 
benevolent rather than the 
monsters of older science 

"The really strange thing 
about it is that this is exactly 
what is happening on Earth," 
Dr. Yinger pointed out. "Every 
medium of mass communicat- 
ions is being used to present the 
concept of extraterrestrial life as 
a valid and real possibility." 

Dr. Yinger investigated 
briefly the question why the 
concept of a technologically

SG Loses Letter, Chess Match

The misplacement of a letter 
from an International Chess 
Grand Master by SG has ruined 
a one time opportunity for the 
Chess Club. 

In a letter sent to the Dean of 
Academic Affairs, Grand Mas- ■ 
ter Samuel Reshevsky stated he 
would be making a transcon- 
tinental chess tour this fall and 
winter, and would be in the 
Palm Beach area from October 
22 til! November 12. He 
requested that any interested 
JC students reply at once to set 
a date on which he could visit 
the school. 

Reshevsky 's exhibition con- 
sists of a "simultaneous" 
(where Reshevsky plays many 
people at once) and a brief 
lecture. His charge is $8.00 per 
board for students, plus $2.00 
Ibr spectators. 

The letter, mailed on October 
15, was received at the school on 
(ictober 18. It required a week 
H) get from Dean Glynn's office 
o SG, where it was initiated and 

then forgotten until the Chess 
Club got it on November 12 - the 
last day of Reshevsky's Palm 
Beach stay. 

The delay caused Chess Club 
members to miss a rare 
opportunity to learn from one of 
the world's top chess players. 
Chess Club president Terry 
Wilkinson expressed his dis- 

"A Grand Master like 
Reshevsky comes along once in 
a lifetime. I know seven or eight 
members who would have liked 
to play him, and probably more- 
would have come if we had 
advertised in the Daily 

SG secretary Constance 
Holmes explained that all 
incoming SG mail is placed in 
one folder on Tory Buckley's 
desk. Officers read their mail, 
initial it, and decide where it is 
to be sent. Reshevsky's letter' 
had been slated to go to the 
Chess Club, but it sat in the 
folder instead until it was 

"This is not a justification, 
but a reason" Holmes said. 

"We (SG) are glad the 
problem was brought to our 
attention," she continued. "It's 
a definite problem, and needs to 
be taken care of. From now on, 
every Friday the folders will be 
reviewed, and any action will be 
taken at that time."

Music Overpowers 

Apparently our call was unheeded. 

As if bloody fetuses outside the cafeteria are not enough, 
students are still being overpowered by the campus "radio 
station," WRAP. 

Two weeks ago we suggested that WRAP, beset with program 
and technical problems, should leave the air. We now repeat that 

Our campus jocks are still overpowering students with loud, 
blaring music played at an indigestion-inducing treble level. 

Over a week ago, Dean John Webb of the Journalism Department 
at the University of EHorida complained that the music was so loud 
that he could not communicate with students he was interviewing. 

Webb and his colleagues are trying to help students and probably 
do not enjoy talking with musical accompaniment. Certainly no one 
involved enjoys straining their ears to hear helpful information. 

Even with that point aside, why must the harmonic grinding of

lyi.i prejuaice toward democracy 
comes from our fear of losing the 
frtedvrn we hold so dear. " 

Such is the case of nations. A nation is 
compcsed of individuals who are schooled 
. through the media of the family, society, the 
comminications system and the government to 
the trend of thinking that is most common to 
those vithin its borders. 

We of A-nerica are no different. We have our 
mental valis also. We think of democracy as the 
extreme in fair government. We believe free is the backbone of democracy, and we 
hold freedom to be God's legacy to all men. 

In this respecu we are prejudiced to our 
convictions, but our prejudice toward democracy 
has come about as a result of our fear of losing 

the freedom we hold so dear. 

We of America have capitalized on the 
complete power which the human mind can 
command. We have used the media of education 
and judgement without omitting the vital power 
of reasoning. 

We have seen the different doctrines of the 
past take forrrk We are not interested in learning 
the foundation of these doctrines. We have 
closed our minds and ears but not our eyes. 

Before us lay the annals of history with all its 
natural cycles. We have observed empires rising 
to great heights only to fall beneath the fury of 
the sword. We have watched Fascism become a 
reality; we have seen such men as Hitler rise like 
great eagles only to fall victim to man's basic fear 
of enslavement. 

Yes, we have watched these doctrines 
crumble, draining the blood of the innocent 
masses, and from it all we have created an 
instinctive prejudiced Democracy. 

It is a prejudice because we Americans are cold 
to any more fanatical beliefs. ' We believe 
democracy to be truth and most will fight to 
uphold that truth. 

But let us think ahead. If we believe in this 
"prejudice of democracy, " if we will not listen to 
those who preach communism and other beliefs, 
then we must live up to the principals of 
democracy or else we are only fooling ourselves. 

We have allowed certain petty and biased 
opinions to supersede our main thought. In other 
words, we cannot be prejudiced about democracy 
and still be biased about races and religions 
because both are opposite philosophies. 

The future of democracy depends upon the 
truth of democracy. 

Students who use the library 
on Sundays will be receiving a 
rare bonus. Of 28 JC's in 
Florida, only three libraries 
have weekend hours. 

Indian River Junior College is 
one of those schools. The 
library there is open both 
Saturday and Sunday, but 
student response has not been 
encouraging for this program. 
Two weeks ago, five people 
came to the library on Saturday - 
only two of which were 
students. On Sunday only three 
people used library facilities 

Eleven years ago, JC's library 
was also open on the weekend. 

But that was stopped because 
there wasn't enough response. 
SG leaders thought the four 
Sundays before final exams 
would be a good time to try 
again. And, without trying, 
there is no way to tell whether it 
will be worthwhile for a longer 
period of time. 

The library works on a 
budget. If money is spent to 
keep the library open on Sunday 
that means there will be less 
money to buy books, for instance 

But the Sunday hours provide 
a good chance for weekend 
study before the finals; it could 
be beneficial. 

Mall Chauvinist? 

The JC Chess Club has lost a once-in-a-lifetime 
opportunity and they have no one to blame but the 
Student Government. SG officials forgot about a 
letter from chess Grandmaster Samuel Reshevsky, 
delivering it to the Chess Club too late to do any good. 

We all make mistakes, so we won't harp on such 
petty things as irresponsibility or just pure 
foolishness. But this situation is just representative of 
things all around us today. Pity the poor 
Beachcomber. We receive the Palm Beach Times 
each day - but a day late. Who needs stale news? 

All of this derives from the "So-who-cares" 
attitude that too many people are taking. Everyone 
seems out for themselves and ignorance of your 
neighbor seems to be the "in" thing. Until it affects

I — 5 ? Percent 

JC Commissions 

J. Micheie Noiter — 

Do you have' a gripe? Are you being discriminated against? Do 
you want to be a doctor but are being discouraged because you are a 
female? Do you want to study nursing but you are a male? The 
newly formed Commission on the Status of Women of PBJC may be 
able to help you. 

There are two such commissions at JC. One is made up of faculty 
with Trinette Robinson as chairwoman and Barbara Matthews as 
the impetus behind the formation of the commission. She is 
currently on sabbatical. 

Dean Glynn has taken the time to form the second cominission he 
hopes the two can be joined in their effort at a later date. 

This commission is made up of Dr. Richard Yinger (a sociology 
instructor), Maria Pico, Constance Holmes and Judy Gillette, all 
three of whom are students. 

The latter of the two commissions has met and established some 
goals. They plan to study the hierarchy of staff positions at JC in 
respect to the sex of the individual holding the job. They also want 
to evaluate the pay scales relative to the positions and job titles. 

Vocational counseling of students is an immediate concern of this 
commission and is one of the top priorities. 

Finally, the commission has set aside Friday, between the hours 
of 12:00 and 1:00, to hear grievances of students in the cafeteria. 
They hope to investigate each complaint and take corrective steps 
where possible. 

. Ms. Pico feels optimistic. "Whether or not most of us are willing 
to admit it, sexism is a major obstacle for women in education today. 
•As a feminist I feel optimistic that a Commission on the Status of 
Women is finally forming at PBJC. We want to delve into the 
problems we face as women on this campus and seek some real 

Ms. Gillette, upon my inquiry, stated that the essential reason 
she is working on the commission is that she "enjoys her femininity 
but not at the expense of her humanity. 

"In today's world there are two kinds of people, women and 
humans," she said. "As Simone de Beauvoir puts it, 'When 
women act like hiiman beings they are accused of acting like men.'" 

When questioned on why she was involved with the commission, 
Ms. Holmes replied, "I consider the greatest tragedy of trying to 
bring about change in anything is that people don't believe that 
change is needed!" 

"I wanted-to be a part of the commission because I believe it is 
vitally necessary on this campus, as well as in the community, that 
an awareness be brought to the injustices inflicted upon women. 

"I ara also hoping that my work on thfe commission will help to 
make me more sensitive to the injustices that exist, and, therefore, 
better enable me to encourage more women to take a firmer stand 
on their right to pursue any field of endeavor they choose and be 
justly treated." 

Yinger is excited about the establishment of the commission and 
feels that there are many possibilities for change and more equal 
treatment of women and men on an individual basis. 

"Anytime you challenge the status quo, you are making a change 
for more just, fair treatment which allows the full potential of an 
individual to grow," he said. 

He would like to see the commission re-evaluate some of the 
school priorities with recommended changes and, in particular, 
create a day care center at JC in the hopes of drawing more women 
into academic fields. 

. [EDITOK'S NOTE; According to a report of the United Nations 
there-are no longer more women than men in the world. Though 
there are now 1.998 billion men and 1.988 billion womea making up 
the world's population, Ms. Notter has decided to continne to title 
her column "51 Percent."]

•Last Exit 

Seven Little Women 


My colleagues and myself, 
after a period of great 
discussion on the pros and cons 
of the situation, have decided 
that we will form a "Right To 
Wife League." 

The purpose of such an 
organization, which I am quite 
sure will ^ the topic of 
conversation at cocktail parties 
ad infinitum, is to establish the 
rights of the individual adult 
male to have as many wives as 
he deems necessary. The idea 
itself, modestly speaking, is not 
only one of greatness, but is 
totally fascinating. 

We can break marriage down 
into seven vital areas that 
women, in their own littly way, 
can fill very nicely; companion- 
ship, sex, children, maid, nurse, 
cook, and mother. 

We, the charter members of 
the league, believe that if, for 
example, a man only desires one 
wife to take care of these 
important needs and wants, 
then the fool should have her. 

And, of course, he should have 
any female he desires; the 
female's choice in the matter is 
simply irrelevant. 

Now if a man cares for the 
company of, say, seven different 
wives, we are all for4t He could 
have each wife be competent in 
their own areas, and sometimes, 
for the sake of variation, switch 
them around at his discretion. 
When he cares for sex, he need 
not wopg' about the inconven- 
ience of the wife who is raising 
his children or the problem of a 
pregnant spouse whose sole 
responsibility is to bear 

When the man has to attend a 
party, he can bring along "the 
little woman" who is the best at 
being perfect at his side. When 
the party is over, they can 
return to a spotless house, 
cleaned by the maid-wife, and 
enjoy a late evening snack 
meticulously prepared by the 


We urge all supporters of this 
idea to join our cause, without 
reservations and without fear of 
reprisal^, because of their belief 
of man's unalienable right to 

Who knows, perhaps the old 
joke will change to ' 'That was no 
ladies, that was my wives."

JOE REDON - "Men's Ub wiU Mow Women's Lib 
whether the women want it or not. 

Feature Editor 

For the first time in the 
history of JC, the "Miss 
Wishing Well" contest (spon- 
sored by the Vets Club) will 
have male contestants. In past 
years the purpose of the contest 
has been to choose a pretty face 
and to raise money for the Early 
Childhood Center on campus. 

This year the purpose is still 
to raise money for the Center, 
but as for choosing a pretty face, 
well. . . 

Since the question "Is this 
Men's Lib?" is raised by the 
entries, the contestants ans- 
wered that question (and others) 

On the remark "Why enter?" 
- all remarked that if the' money 
was going to such a good cause , 
"Why not?" 

Joe Redon, sponsored by the 
Chi Sig Club, commented "both 
kinds of liberation are terrific, 
but you can't have one without 
the other. Men's Lib will follow 

Women's Lib whether 
women want it or not." 

Glynne Hughes, sponsored by 
an individual group, remarked 
that he agrees on most aspects 
of Women's Lib, but feels that 
men should "wear the pants." 
About Men's Lib - "If it feels 
good, do it." Hughes also 
stated "It's about time male 
bodies were judged by women." 

Tory Buckley, sponsored by 
Philo, thinks that the stricter 
aspects of Women's Lib ai-e 
ridiculous, but believes in equal 
rights for both sexes. He 
approves of Men's Lib and 
doesn't think there are any 
classified roles for either sex. 

Marc Bressler, sponsored by 
the Beachcomber, says he is a 
sentimentalist when it comes to 
Women's Lib. "There are 
certain traits and characteristic 
points of both sexes which 
should not be abandoned," 
stated Bressler. 

the All of these daring dudes 

hope to win the contest, and will 
be required to pose for pictures 
along with the female contest- 

The name of the contest, as a 
result of these entries, will have 
to be changed. Some 

suggestions by the contestants 
have been the "Wishing Well" 
contest and the "Mr. and Miss 
Wishing Well" contest - with 
two winners, one of either sex. 

Despite the sudden interest in 
male bodies on campus, the girl 
watchers note that activity on 
their end hasn't stopped. "We 
hope the female contestants 
won't back out because of 
competition," commented Jack 
DiSalvo, Vet's Cliib president.

purpose of the contest - to raise 
money for the Childhood Center

A Snowbird is a Snowbird is a 
Snowbird. . .so the saying 
almost goes, but recently at the 
fourth annual "Snowbird" 
Festival at Florida Technologi- 
cal University, JC student Ray 
Smith proved to be more of a 
"Snowbird" than others. 

Ray entered a prose/poetry 
combination in the interpreter 
contest. It was a childish poem 
about war with a shocking prose 
account of the Nazi death camp 
atrocities. He won the top 
individual prose/poetry inter- 
preter award for which he 
received a silver bowl. 

"Snowbird" Festival itself 
consists of presentations in Oral 
and Group Interpretations by 
different schools. 

The JC readers theatre group 
presented JC drama instructor 
Frank Leahy's "Fortratis" to an 
attentive audience. The group 
interpretation was a blending of 
Lorraine Hansberry, the black 
author with her play and recent

Plan Chessmates Match 


The Chess Club held its first meeting and discussed plans for a 
tournament to be held with FAU. Mr. Washburn, the advisor to the 
Chess Club, and the seventeen active members are opening this 
tournament to the PBJC student body. 

Four PBJC students will comprise the team who will play in the 
FAU vs PBJC tournament. There will be two alternates added to 
this team also. A tournament will be held among the PBJC students 
who wish to compete against the FAU team. The end of the PBJC 
competition will show the six top members of the club who will then 
go on to meet the FAU team. The PBJC trial competition will be 
held in the SAC lounge and sign-ups start as soon as possible, 

There is no entry fee set for the PBJC tournament as yet. If the 
club decides to offer trophies then a slight fee will be required. 

The number of the entrants in the PBJC tournament will decide 
the date of the PBJC vs. FAU Tournament. " The more the entnes 
then the more games that must be played to decide the final team 

The tournament with FAU is just a small sampling of things to 
come for the Chess Club. The team also plans to enter a state 
college chess tournament. The date for this is unknown to Terry 
Wilkinson, President of the Chess Club, but he stated that it would 
be sometime during our winter term. , 

With the help of Mr. Washburn, the Chess Club is programming 
the PBJC computers to play chess. The computer will be able to 
defeat most competitors and will also modify its program. In 
common laymen language it means that the computer will learn 
from its mistakes and correct them. 

Wilkinson stated that a rumor was circulating that you had to be 
intellectual to play chess. He claims that it is not true and anyone 
can learn to play chess. He and a number of other members from 
the chess club are willing to teach any person who has an interest m 
learning the games, 


Fontosma Tonight 

Entertainment Co-Editor 

The Pacesetters, a vibrant 
group of twenty JC performers, 
will present their "Annual Fall 
Fantazma Show" tonight at 8:00 
p.m. The show is open to 
students, free of charge, and 
promises to be an excellent one. 

The musical selection is 
slated to include many types, 
from Carl Strommans' "All 
About the Blues" to pop 
music's "Save the Country," 
"Never My Love", and 
"Everyday People." Other 
numbers planned include John 
Denver's "Take Me Home, 
Country Roads", and instru- 
mental renditions of "Love 
Theme" as popularized by 
Barry White, and "Evil Ways". 

A special treat will be offered,

In this, their fourth year since 
being formed by Pat Johnson, 
the Pacesetters have been busy.

Music Educators, where they 
listened to many leaders in all 
fields of music including Stan 
Kenton, composer/conductor 
Carmen Dragon, and a host of 

The Pacesetters were 
also guest performers at the 
University of Florida in 
Gainesville for the FMEA- 
SMENC Career Conference, the 
only group from Florida at the

during this time, a write-up in 
"High Fidelity Magazine." 

Denise O'Neill, a vocalist in 
the group, said that the

more unique groups at both of

that go into making a good

Concert Flawless 

Entertainment Co-Editor 

The Eighth Annual Scholarship Concert, featuring the Concert 
Orchestra, the Concert Choir, and the Concert Band was held at 
3:30 p.m. November 17th in the JC auditorium. 

To begin the show, the Concert Orchestra, under the direction of 
James Gross, demonstrated fine control while performing the 
"Lancaster Overture" by P. Whear and " SijJte'For Strings" by A. 
Frackenpohl. The orchestra really got in tune when they performed 
"Tales From the Vienna Woods" by Johann Strauss. 

Performing second was the Concert Choir. Dressed in matching 
blue and white attire and directed by Pat Johnson, the choir did an 
exceptional job. 

In one selection, "Waters Ripple and Flow," Oveta Jackson and 
Kimm Gent were the featured soloists, the fbrmer. a fine, clear 
soprano and the latter, a strong baritone, 

"Wade in the Water" was one of the few recognizable songs the 
choir performed. In the midst, of this selection,. Lorraine Home 
pleased this listener with her strong effective tonality. "Ain't That 
Good News" was a Ijglit' lively song with a lilting melody which 
would please me to hear it again. 

Completing the program was the Concert Band which was 
directed by Sy Pryweller. The band maintained the high standards 
of the evening. They performed the "March Collegiate", 
"Chester", a piece by William Schuman and "Suite of Old 
American Dances" an arrangement by Robert Russell Bennett. 

The donations given for the concert were to be used to provide 
scholarships to worthy students. 

^Frankly Speaking 

Man's Morbid Desire 

Frank Smith' 

Curious, how entertainment 
is getting more morbid. 

I noticed this when I was 
younger and my brother took me 
to car races, after the cars would 
crash, how thrilled everyone 
seemed to be at watching a near

The recent daredevil revelry 
of Evel Knivai and his jet cycle 
pointed out to me, not the 
bravery of man, but man's 
desire to see death. 

Think about all the times 
when the only interest you had 
in circus high -wire acts, and 
tight rope walkers was the 
chance they may fall. 

Someday, I'm sure, television 
will have a show along the 
parallel of "You Are There" 
which will present live coverage 
of potential scenes of death. 
The really "great" programs 
will be those fortunate enough 
to get live coverage of actual 
wars. These shows will have a 
definite following which they 
probably would never lose, 
killing has been with man so 
long, death must interest him. 

Why do people watch football 
games, to see good clean fun, or 
good clean violence. How often 
have you heard the phrases, 
uttered in gleeful appreciation, 
"He really slaughtered thatt 
guy." and "We killed those 
guys, didn't we?" 

Death, it seems, is a question 
mark to many and it appears 
that people have decided that 
although they may never know 
the answer at least they can look 
for examples.

When Eagle Flies' - Lacking 

'When The Eagle Flies' 
expresses the traditional, mel- 
low, slowdown-rock of Traffic 
with the laid back sounds that 
all rock and roll fans will dig on 
when the infamous hard rock 
headache strikes again. 

Parts of the album are good 
but it also contains some long, 
drawn out weak musical 
phrases. , 

Most songs are based too 
much around the same ideas 
and consequently sound too 
much alike. The only real 
strong parts at all are in the 

Jimmy Nieh 

tunes "Dream Gerrad" and 
"Graveyard People." 

The rest of the selections are 
quite banal, one-dimensional, 
and lack excitement. There 
aren't any real high points in 
these songs, but rather remain, 
pretty much, on the same level 
through beginning to end. 

It is not very interesting in 
many places except in "Dream 
Gerrerd," where there is" 
actually a bit of depth and 
certainly a good dose of feeling.

was the real winner. 

There were a total of nine

Thursday when 17 people took 
off after the turkey. Everyone

Coach Roy Bell intramural 
director explained the situation, 
"They found the feathers that 
were on the course itself, but 
missed the ones off the course. 
The format required the people 
to think out the clues, but too 
many just followed the leader." 

Two girls walked the course 
and finished last, but one more 
feather for either of them would 
have won it.

Title IX Discourages Bias 


Perhaps the biggest inno- 
vation to hit men's and women's 
sports since the invention of the 
whiistle is Title IX of the 1972 
Education Act. 

Title IX forbids discrimination 
under any education program or 
activity which is receiving 
federal funds. This would make 
it illegal for any school receiving 
federal assistance to deny equal 
opportunities in athletics to 
women. And women are 
making the most of the title in 
colleges and universities all over 
the U.S. 

One aggressive sports pro- 
gram in the country is at the 
University of Pittsburgh.

With Title IX, proposed 
regulations are still being 
revised. According to Gwen 
Gregory, the main author of the 
title, they will be looking at the 
totality and the individual 
aspects; ■ This means the 
facilities, training, uniforms, 
travel expenses and more. 

The title cannot control what 

sports the schools offer, 
however, but can only make 
sure there is no discrimination. 

"Sports Illustrated," in 
handling the situation, sees one 
problem. With women 

competing on men's ground, 
they open themselves up to 
being shouldered out of their 
own programs. Men who are 
not talented enough for the 
men's teams will be moving into 
the women's. This idea has led 
to rules passed in Minnesota,

teams, but not men on the

After a call from high school 
team-mate and former Pacers 
star John Van Auker, Poyastro, 
a strapping 6' 6" forward, came 
to Florida, "played well, and 
Coach Wright signed me up." 

So in August, 1973, Gus 
Poyastro arrived in the friendly 
confines of JC's basketball 
house at 4888 Prince Drive, just 
across from John Prince Park. 

"It was like a ghetto in the 
middle of a nice neighborhood. 
We had seven guys living in a 
three-bedroom house, and there 
were bad' maintenance prob- 


"People talk about players' 
bad grades. . .that house leads 
to bad grades. It is virtually 
impossible to study." 

For whatever the reason, 
inhabitants <of that: house and 
others managed to slide the 
Pacers to second place in the 
state last season. 

However, as most any Pacer 
will tell you; that wasn't 
enough. Now living in his own 
apartment, Gus confides, "My 
grades now are no real problem 
■ this gives me more time to. 
concentrate on basketball." 

Following the three-pont loss 
to Chipola in the state final last 
season, Poyastro made a short 
speech in the locker room. Said 
Poyastro at the time, "We- 
almost had it. Everyone tried as 
hard as they could, and we have 
nothing to be ashamed of. 

"TOth a lot of freshmen coming 
back, we're going to win the 
.state and go to the nationals and 
win there," he concluded last

position, and an apartment- -

"It will take a little while until 
the team really starts to click," 
commented JC forward Gus 
Poyastro. But forty minutes of 
basketball was all the Pacers 
needed to chalk up win No. 1 of 
the 74-75 season, Nov. 20 over a 
stubborn Palm Beach Atlantic 
club, 81-78.

The Sailfish jumped to a 15-7

turnovers and sloppy play.

Sailfish forward Jerry Trout-

goals in the first half and scored 

the first four times he had the 
ball in the second half to pull 
PBA back within three points. 
Turnovers and unnecessary 
fouls hurt both teams through- 
out the game. JC lost the ball 25 
times due to errors, compared to 
Sailfish's 27.

rebounds, powered in a key 
basket in the closing seconds

George Perides, the Palm Beach Atlantic coach, looked at tk 
game as a scrimmage because he couldn't afford to play a "real" 
ball game with a junior college. 

He played his younger ball players, though freshman Jerty 
Troutman, who scored 26, is his standout performer. 

Perides said, "We both did the same things wrong." 

This was evident by the number of turnovers. The Facets 
finished with 25 and the Sailfish 27. 

In analyzing the stats, the Pacers used about W/i of their total 
offense and scored .97 of a point each time they came down the

contest, "Our timing. was off."

guard from Twinsburg, Ohio. Also drawing praise was Gus

New Hours 
For Study 

Through the efforts of 
Constance Holmes and Dolor 
Ginchereau the library is open 
for the final four Sundays of the 
fall term. 

Many of the night students 
complained that they didn't 
have access to the library as it 
closed at 8:30 p.m. Ms. Holmes 
and Ginchereau met with Dr. 
Manor and Dean Tate to rectify 
the situation. 

Through a compromise the 
library was opened an extra half 
an hour on the week nights and 
on the final four Sundays of the 
term from 1:00 p^m. until 5:00 
p.m. The library will also be 
opened the first three days of 
the week of finals, December 
16, 17 and 18. This has never 
geen cone before. 

Unofficially ten students used 
the library the first Sunday it 
was opened. The second 
Sunday between 28-32 students 
used the facilities.

Veterans Administration off- 
icials said the back payments 
would probably be in the hands 
of the veterans now in school in 
about 15 days. The first regular 
check with the increase willgo 
out January 1, they said. 

The bill increases monthly 
payments for full time institut- 
ional training from $220 to $270 
for a single veteran, from $261 
to $321 for a veteran with one 
dependent and from $298 to 
$336 with two dependents. The 
rate for each dependent over 
two is raised from $18 to $22. 

The Bijl allows Reservists and 
National Guardsman to get 
credit for education benefits for 
their six months initial active 
duty for training if they later 
serve on active duty for 12 
months or more. 

The benefits increase the 
entitlement to 45 months from 
the present 36 months, and sets 
up a special loan program that 
will enable veterans to borrow 
money from the Treasury if they 
are unable to obtain it from 
other federal programs. 

Ford had called the bill 
inflationary, claiming it would 
increase his budget by $502 
million and require a request for 
a supplemental appropriation 

The House vote was 394-10 
and the Senate's 90-1. 

Classes were cancelled, so students and faculty could attend a 
performance by the Danish Gym Team which was scheduled 
to take place last Monday, December 2 from 12:10 to I.-IO

Just when it seems like nothing is free anymore. . .SG decides to 
sponsor a second coffee house. With free coffee and entertainment 
offered, it was a good idea. But, like good ideas have a way of 
doing, it fizzled. 

If you heard about that coffee house, scheduled for Dec. 2, and IF 
you decided to go listen to the music and see the new game room, 
you were disappointed. There was no coffee house after all. 
Without notice to students, it was cancelled. 

Why was it cancelled? Because some people thought the coffee 
house would conflict with the performance of the Danish Gym 
Team. The Danish Gym Team, another good idea that fizzled (due 
in no way to SG), was scheduled to appear at 12:10 Dec. 2. Even if 
the gym team had performed, which it didn't, there would have still 
been an hour beforehand for the coffee house. 

SG has a so-called "open door" policy. The fact that many JC 
students couldn't care less if its door is opened or closed hampers 
SG. But, in this case, SG is just adding coal to the apathetic fire 
when something is scheduled and .then cancelled without notice. 

The cancellation of the coffee house is not a big issue in itself and 
will probably have no drastic affect on anyone. But the point is that 
the students should have known. They should know about the game 
room. Though its bad points seem to be harped upon, students 
should know about SG's positive attempts. 

Students have the right to know even when an attempt, like the 
coffee house, fails. The beachcomber recognizes this right to know 
and the newspaper is the place students look to read about SG 
business. Yet, when a Beachcomber reporter attempted to question 
an SG leader about the coffee house, he was, though not in so many 
words, told to get lost. 

Why doesn't the sun shine at JC? Without more of the promised 
government "in the sunshine" from SG, we're going to be asking 
that question. 

But, everybody's got a right to try, try again and SG will. 
Another coffee house is planned for early January. With a little 
luck, the more information to students, this one will work. 

Sugar Snatching 

That woman with the big handbag may look like a harmless little 
old lady. But she may be one of the many sugar thieves invading the 
nation's restaurants. 

Since sugar prices went sky high, restaurant managers have been 
noticing the rapid disappearance of sugar packets. Some peopleeven 
pour sugar out of bowls and onto napkins to steal it. 

Some of the sugar-snatching tactics used by restaurant customers 
are clever, some could be called surprising (though not much is 
surprising these days). 

Be reminded that m^ny restaurant managers pay high wholesale 
prices for sugar; prices higher than those the consumer pays in a 
grocery store. Managers are asking that everyone have a little 
courtesy and more conscience about this. But, perhaps courtesy is 
an even more valuable commodity than the sugar.

AAontessori Method Praised 

Did you see the little children 
on the campus today, over at the 
Center for Early Learning? 
Under their directress, Ms. 
Kathy Bowser, these young 
children have "freedom"' to 
develop their emotional, intel- 
lectual and spiritual capacities 
to the fullest. 

This "freedom" I am 
speaking of is the basic premise 
of the Montessori Method. That 
"freedom" to develop is 
achieved through the develop- 
ment of order and self-disci- 

To a child, our world with all 
its sights and sounds, first 
appears to be chaotic. By 
learning through his senses, a 
child masters himself and his 

In a Montessori classroom 
you will find a prepared 
environment with certain order 
which enables a child to develop 
at his own capacity in a 
non-competitive atmosphere. 
Self-motivation of the child is 
the only impulse that moves the 
child toward learning. The 
teachers prepare the environ- 
ment, direct the activity, act as a 
leader and offer stimulation and 
guidance. But it is the child who 
learns through the motivation of 
the work itself. 

The experience of frequent 
success in a Montessori 

environment helps the child' 
acquire a positive self-image, 
much needed for success in life. 
The Center for Early Learning 
has an observation room where 

you can see the children leatti, 
with the guidance of the student 
interns and teachers.

Moturity Questioned 


In order to be effective,, both the'SG and the Beachcomber 
must maintain an air of sophistication and maturity so that the 
students, faculty and administration can see that they are 
responsible, viable forces on campus. 

But, with their entrance in the Miss Wishing Well contest, 
SG's president, the 'Comber's editor-in-chief and the 
'Comber's managing editor (who also acts as an SG senator), 
have created a credibility gap which may affect their 
interactions with the other forces on campus. 

This leads this student to ask: "Can SG and the 
Beachcomber be taken seriously?"

SG Needs Judge 

Staff Writer 

Student Government's Executive Board is finding it difficult to establish a Judicial Board this year. 

According to SG's Constitution, it is the Executive Board's duty to establish the Judicial Board, with 
SG's President making the appointments. 

President Tory Buckley has been talking to students and asking Social Science faculty members to 
tell their students about the Judicial Board. He also plans to put a notice in the daily bulletin. There 
has been no student response. 

The Judicial Department is one of the three branches of Student government, and according to SG 
Secretary Constance Holmes, Student Government cannot-cairy out the SG Constitution without it. 

The Judicial Board must be composed of seven justices; a Chief Justice and six Associate Justices. 
Any student who is not a member of either the Executive or Legislative Departments may become a 

According to the Constitution, the Judicial Board's duties and powers are: "1) To review and 
interpret the Constitution, 2) To decide if and when one department is interfering with, or infringing 
upon the duties and powers of another, 3) to try all cases of impeachment against an elected officer of 
the Student Body." 

Evaluation Asked 

The SG Senate Thursday 
passed two of Senator Dave 
Upshaw's resolutions that are to 
better the student body. 

The items included instructor 
evaluation and less expensive 

"The teacher in the Social 
Science department is the worst 
teacher I have ever had from 
kindergarten up to college," 
said Upshaw. 

He said the instructor knows 
who he is and will remains at JC 
until he resigns. Upshaw 
doesn't like the present 
evaluation system. 

"The present evaluation 
system is not categorically 
enforced," Upshaw demanded. 

The resolution asked that a 
petition be sent to Dr. Manor, 
the Board of Trustees, and the 
Faculty Senate to institute a 
"well defined" instructor eval- 
uation system. 

"If a teacher does not meet 
the requirements, he should be 
fired," says Upshaw. 

Senator Upshaw's other 
resolution asked for the 
purchase of less expensive 
textbooks. He argued that 
"gold lettered" and elaborated 
bookcovers are not necessary. 
He offered paperback books 
instead of hardbacks. 

During the meeting a motion 
was carried to have the SG Vice 
Presdient Dolor Ginchereau go

A bill of appropriations was

Ginchereau said Miss Ovla-

Senators want to get their

f-'-Speech Demo's 

I Whip Inflation Now \ 


Evening Reporter 

Have you been wondering, 
when you see so many students 
paclcing paraphenalia ■ in the 
classrooms, whether they are 
gomg to a garage sale, auction 
or have just "flipped?" 

It's none of the above - just 
demonstration time in the 
Speech 101 classes. 

One gets the impression that 
assignments are on WIN [WIilp 
Inflation Now) President Ford's 
economic program which is now 
going Into Its eighth weelc. 

However, this is not true. 
Most students have taken it 
upon themselves to display 
projects geared at conserving 
high cost commodities. 

A good example is the 
sugarless cake that was mixed 

"by Dorothy Sheely, an evening 
student. Her husband, Carl, is 
enrolled in the same class, is not 
only her official taster but also 
transports her equipment for 
her. She brought no ".precious 
sweetner" only pudding mix 
and orange juice are used in her 
Harvey Wallbanger delicacy. 

Simply mix together one 
package each of yellow calce 
mix, and vanilla pudding, 
one>half cnp of cooiting oil, four 
eggs, 1/4 cup each of vodica and 
Galliano liqueur and 3/4 sup of 
orange juice. After beatfaig for 
fomr minutes, pour the batter 
into a well greased and floured 
pan and balce at 350 degrees for 
45-50 minuts. 

Dorothy assures the "tee- 
totalers" that they could eat this 
pastry with a clear conscience 

because the alcoholic spirits 
evaporate during cooking and 
only the flavor remains. 

Esther Warren, another WIN 
conscious student, is growing a 
bean sprout garden to cut down 
on cost and calories. 

This "show and tell" feature 
on the speech course also 
revealed the skills of putting up 
a tent, watchmaking, decou- 
page, woodcraft, embroidery, 
graphics, taxidermy, purse- 
making, archery and foot 

Students who have combined 
this phase of learning with 
practicality have come up with 
interesting concoctions to offset 
commercial gimmicks, proving 
that they will do whatever is 
necessary to "Whip Inflation 

Every year, campus social 
clubs hold their annual "rush 
parties" and pledging sessions, 
and many of you have probably 
wondered what really goes on 
during "Hell Week". . 

The following is an actual 
account of the week's activities, 
as seen through a pledge's eyes. 

Scott Guske 
Chi Sig Pledge 

, Thanksgiving week was "the 
most unusual week of my life. It 

On Monday morning my 
alarm clock rang at 5:00 a.m. 
Reluctantly, I rose to my 
dreadful fate. I then dressed up 
in my pledging suit, which 
consisted of a shredded white 
tuxedo, a torn pleated shirt,, 
ripped pants, painted white 
shoes, an ear of com, one raw 
egg, and a one pound mullet 
around my neck. 

From there I met my two 
other pledge brothers at the JC 
football field at 6:00 a.m. While 
we were there, a few of the 
fraternity brothers made us do 
various exercises, wuch as 
push-ups, sit-ups, toe touches, 
pushing our eggs with our 
ndese, soramersaulting the 
length of the football field, and 

From there we had to enter 
the cafeteria with pur fish 
around our necks, and oureggs 
smashed in our hair, and ask 

every girl we saw where 
"Freddie the Fly" was. That 
was just Monday. 

Tuesday at 6:00 a.m. when 1 
arrived at school, my pledge 
brothers weren't there. To my 
dismay, I found them sleeping. 
While they were dressing, a 
plan had to be devised io 
explain whey we were not at 
school by 6:00. We walked into 
the Lake Worth Police Depart- 
ment with our suits on, and our 
dead fish around our necks. We 
then explained our predicament 
and persuaded the sergeant (o 
call the commander of the 
Fraternity and ask him to pick 
us up at the station. 

We told him that we were 
stopped for speeding and didn't 
have a driver's license, so the 
officer took us to the station. It 
worked, and the day proceeded 
in the same fashion as Monday 

Pledging meant so much to us 
that we gave up our time, our 
grades, our money, and out 
home lives. On top of that, we 
went through many trying 
ordeals, always trying not to 
displease about twenty-five 
brothers. Even so, the glimpse 
of brothehood which we, the 
pledges, witnessed and the 
great amount of brotherhood 
that we expressed towards each 
other was enough for us to say 
that it was

Comber Questions Study Habits 

As the tena nears its end, many find themselves bidalghig hi 
study. While avoiding the unpleasantly seems the easiest 
method, some, like this pensive student at left, prefer to take a 
serious look at the situation. 

Featvre Editor 

It's that time .of year again, 
and like h or not, itiany of our 
spare moments in the days to 
come will be occupied by that 
time-consuming, unpopular 
pastime - studying. 

As a public service to the 
campus, the Beachcomber has 
conducted a poll to disclose 
where, when, and how people 
prepare themselves for that 
ail-too-familiar sport, in hopes 
that our readers could put to 
good use some of the useful 
hints we've aquired. 

Of the 50 students quest- 
ioned, five stated that they 
studied "just like everyone else: 
"Read your notes, review the 
assignments, and PRAY!' 

"Their favorite places to 
indulge include the library, a 
quiet room or the cafeteria. (1?) 
An overwhelming majority, 
(382) reluctantly admitted that 
they do study, but only after an 
honest attempt at procrastinat- 

Some of their methods are: 

1. Turn on the television-^ 
hopefully you'll fall asleep. 

2. Study with a friend-you 
never kiiow what you'll learn. 

3. Gouge yourself on 
midnight snacks-maybe you'll 
acquire indigestion, thus having 
a legitimate excuse for cuttmg 
the class. 

Other suggestions included 
"turning your radio on, " "go sit 
on the John and make yourself 
comfortable," "buying an 
'EXAM Cram' at the book- 
store" and "drink a lot of 

"Not too much, though", this 
one pro relayed, "once 1 drank 
so much of the stuff my hands 
were shaking all the next day." 

The remaining two-percent 
said they refused to study; 
under any conditions. Obviou- 
sly, these foolish scholars will 
be humming "I'll See You in 
September" all the way to the 
Registrar's office. 

We hope the alwve sugges- 
tions prove useful, but whatever 
tactics your method consists of, 
Good Luck!

Nostalgia Craze Offers Release 


It was the time of bobby sox, saddle shoes, greasers, 
leather jackets, drive-in restaurants and jitterbugging. 
it was a time of awareness for the U.S. ■ in government, 
and in individuals. It was - the nifty fifties. 

Now, it is the time of bobby sox, "Rock Around the 
Clock", saddle shoes, and an occasional greaser. It is 
once again a time of awareness for the U.S. - in 
government and in individuals. It is nostalgia. 

Why nostalgia? People want to live back in the 
"good 'ol days". Back in the fifties they sure didn't 
think it was the "good 'ol days"! What magical 
atmosphere surrounds the world of yesterday? 

Many psychologists explain that this is an attempt to 
be fi-ee of the present world and its stress. This is also 

the way movie-makers in Hollywood explain the trend. 

Since "The Last Picture Show" in 1971, with a 
flashback of life in the fifties, movie studios have been 
making millions of "memory movies". 

"Forget about the generation gap. Try nostalgia! If 
yon have a teenager pinned down in the past like a 
butterfly under glass, you've got the upper hand," 

So the youth magazbie SEVENTEEN quotes 
Hollywood producers. For them the idealized past has 
become a source of instant success. 

To prove their pohit, last year the movie "American 
Graffiti" broke box office records. Immediately, 
Wolfman Jack's and sock hops began appearing all 
over the country. Ninety percent of all high schools and 
most colleges sponsored sock hops or 50's dances. The 

producers had struck it rich. 

In the past year more classic cars have b een seen on 
the road than ever before. The clothes trend is going 
back to pedal pushers and granny gowns. Even mens 
hair has gone back to the long, natural styles of 

And now inflation is bringuig us back to the 30's 
depressioiv/ Were does nostalgia end? 

EDITOR'S NOTE JC's Phi Ro Phi club is now 
sponsoring 50's dance instruction sessions These are in 
preparation for the Philo SO's dance to be held at JC on

Jim Scott, sophomore student 
seantor is a volunteer fireman 
for Greenacres City. 

For Jim his dream began as a 
young child who admiringly 
looked upon the big red fire 
engines and dreamed someday 
of riding on one. Well, about 16 
months ago the dream began to 
be within reach when his sister 
and brother-in-law urged him to 
become a volunteer for 

"The greatest thing I like is 
helping others," Jim sincerely 


Jim lives a very active life. 
Aside from being a full time 
student, a senator, and a 
volunteer fireman his is also a 
part-time bag boy for Winn- 
Dixie. . 

"I can't stress enough how 
much I enjoy helping others. 
It's a good feeling knowing you 
can help someone in trouble." 

Jim has his CPR license to aid 
a person having a heart attack. 
He would like to take a course in 
first aid training and become a 
certified EMT (Emergency 
Medical Technician). 

Jim is a history major and 
plans to- follow it up as a history 
teacher, but thoroughly enjoys 
his work as a volunteer fireman. 

'Imagine getting a call at 2:30 
a.m. while in a dead sleeip, to 
answer the call of a brush fire. 

that turns out to only be a pig 
roast. This and many other 
experiences are just a part of 
Jim's active life. 

It's amazing. Just as in all 
places of work there are 
agreements and disagreements 
but when that alarm sounds 
we're all working together to 
put our a fire and save the lives 
of the people involved. It's just 
wanting to help others."

Danish Roll In Late 

Entertainment Co-Editor 

Contrary to popular belief, the Danish Gym Team 
scheduled for a 12:10 performance on Dec. 2 in the JC 
gymnasium did show for a performance, only later that 

As the minutes grew longer last Monday for the hundreds 
of students waiting In the gym it soon became apparent, by 
the empty gymnasium floor, there would be no performance. 
Students dispersed after a timely wait and either relaxed from 
the cold in the cafeteria or went to class. 

Later that afternoon the Danish Gym Team's caravan rolled 

up to the gym expecting to give a performance. The manager 

had unfortunately misintepreted the contract's time. The 

team had been on the road performing for the last 30 days and 

most of these performances were at night. The manager said 

he assumed this performance would be like the rest, at night. 

Activities Chairman Miss L. Royce said it was simply a 

misunderstanding of performance time. The manager of the 

team was very appologetic, though, and said he hopes they 

will be invited back. 

Southern Comfort is slated to play for the "SO's Dance" on December 13, from 8:30 to 12:30,

Anything Stolen Is Wrong 

— — By Frank Snnith — 

With sounds cascading echo-

action, the JC Jazz Ensemble 
played to an attentive audience 
of over 300, Wednesday, Dec. 4. 

Opening with "Norwegian 

Staff Head 

Mr. Watson B. Duncan III, 
head of the JC English 
department, achieved national 
and widespread notoriety for his 
part in a television show 
recently. Duncan said the show, 
presented on November 25 was 
a Burt Reynolds special titled 
"Let Me Go Home Again" and 
was produced through Merv 
Griffin Productions. 

The show presented a 
different side of Burt Reynolds; 
not hos "glamour king" or the 
"superstar" side, but rather the 
human one. 

Duncan was featured in an 
interview with Merv Griffin, and 
was given credit for his 
discovery of "Burt", as he 
fondly calls him. 

"I was director of the plays at 
that time, in 1956, and we were 
doing a play called 'Outward 
Bound'", explained Duncan. "I 
saw Burt in my literature 
class," and thought that he 
would be perfect for the leadms 

Duncan then related how he 
told Reynolds he wanted to stay 
after class and do a "reading" 
for him. Reynolds read the part 
and was given the leading role, 
that of a young alcoholic. 

"Burt, you're going to be an 
actor." Duncan had said back 
then. It is a phrase remembered 
by both of them now. 

In the film also was footage 
from a tribute to Duncans 25 
years of teaching at JC, which 
was attended by Reyholds along 
with Mone Markham. 

"Burt is a marvelous person, 
a wonderful human being . . .a 
very sensitive human being." 
says Mr. Duncan. 

He is also, obviously, a man' 
appreciative of his first drama 
coach, the man who started it 
all, Watson B. Duncan III.

The remainder of scheduled

intricate guitar playing requires 
an attentive ear to be 
appreciated, while band music 
does not. After the audience sat

Wakeman Awakens 

Jimmy Niel- 

"Journey to The Centre Of The Earth" was recorded live in 
concert at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Friday, Jaiiuary 18, 
1974 with The London Symphony Orchestra and The English 
Chamber Choir conducted by David Measham. The production was 
narrated by David Hemmings. 

Rick Wakemans' band, Journey, consist of Gary 
Pickford.-Hopkins and Ashley Holt doing vocals and occasional 
percussion, Mike Egan on giiitar, Roger Newell on bass, Barney 
James on Drums, and silver-caped composer Wakeman on his 
mound of keyboards. 

"Journey To The Centre Of The Earth", put together in four 
movements, is the story of three men who travel from Hamburg to 
Iceland where they descend into the crater of an extinct volcano and 
travel through a succession of caverns, caves, forests, and an ocean 
to the center of the Earth. 

During the course of their venture the explorers become trapped 
in rock galleries, encounter a five-day storm, cautiously make their 
way through a giant mushroom forest, and witness a tenifying 
■battle between two sea monsters. Eventually they are expelled 
back on the surface of the Earth by way of a volcano in the Far East. 
Jules Verne's Science Fition fantasy 'Journey To The Centre Of 
The Earth' provided the inspiration for Wakeman 's work. 

As a whole, it is a strong and, well put together piece of music. 
The way in which the musical themes are presented and later 
re-appear in varying forms throughout the piece is very interesting. 

Wakeman's synthesizer licks tend to be too repetitious and stick 
to simpler major and minor keys, biit his mdividual style and magic 
touch make it sound real fine. Rick Wakeman could be called, 
"keyboard master of the major scale." 

The narration of the journey is really_waht makes the album even 
more unique. As the music^sets the moods, David Hemmings reads 
each part of the story. 

Of the movements, side two's 'the Battle' is the best and most 
exciting selection. The narrator describes the frightening 
appearance of two sea monsters and tells of their upcoming fight, 
then the music takes off and leaves it to your imagination. 

While listening you tend to forget that it is a live performance. 
The original live tape was masterfully mixed with a 16-track mixer 
by Wakeman himself.

Where were you when the 
Pacesetters performed? On 
November 25 the Pacesetters, 
JC's professional-type: perform-

in the auditorium. The concert 
was poorly attended by JC 
students but the older populous 
of our area showed the wisdom 
of age, filling the 500 seats 
available with contented liste- 

The show was divided into 
two parts and lasted over an 
hour and a half. It was divided 
also, into different sized 
performing groups with solos, 
duets, and full company 

A couple of number's the 
entire company performed 
were, "Everyday People," and 
"Save The Country."

Pat Johnson presented a show 
which contained something you 
rarely hear anymore; songs with 
lyrics, that have feeling, and 
which move the listener.

on hearing Paul William's 
"Isn't That What Friends are 
For," and pleased to hear 
"Hurry Sundown", a wonder- 
fully written song. Pat Johnson 
sang beautifully in her rendition 
of "Hurry Sundown," and was 
joined by Debi Gregory for some 
fine harmonizing in the Paul

everyone there. 

Pacesetter Tony Marchese 
gets an "a" for his expressive 
and exuberant performance in 
leading the song "Mississippi

Leadership Lax 

While watching the Pacers in action, the evidence shows this is 
not the same club which was runner-up in the state tournament one 
season ago. 

Perhaps the calibre of 22 superstars like Keith Highsmith is 
missing, but one is for certain, the Pacers need leadership. 

JC Coach Robert Wright commented after the game Wednesday 
Dec. 4 his freshman guards played "incredibly" but "it takes a 
while to get things squared away." 

The club is looking towardthe point guard, one of two freshman, 
Mike Gibbs or Ron Cunningham, to set the offense. 

On Wed. Dec. 4, the Pacers- were defeated in the last nine 
seconds by Broward North 86-85 in an emotional contest. Yet, an 
opportunity to score and win was present. 

Each player and Coach Wright know now that a time out would 
have enabled the ball to be inbounded at the time line. 

Wright said, "I'd tell them to give it to Burns and let him shoot." 
But, the time ran out on the clock. 

Many of the players feel that William Hall, who has been out of 
actionbecause of eligibility will now help the club. Donald Burns 
commented, "He'll help us a whole lot." 

Receiving two technical fouls in one ball game is not something 
new to the Pacers. Captain Bill Brandon said, "Last year we had 
beaucouptechnicalsicalled on us." 

To have a winning combination, one or several of the 
experienced players must take the initiative. The responsibility rest 
not only on Captain Brandon but the rest of the club as well. 

Wright echoed his thoughts. As of now, "We don't have 

The talent is present. The leadership must come forward.

After 4 hours of debate the SG 
Senate decided to go along with 
the Executive Board Evaluation 
Committee's decision awarding 
1 2 of 24 Senators honorariums. 

Debate centered around who 
should get the $50 honorarium. 
Senators passed a Bill of 
Appropriations late in October. 
Article II of the bill asked that 
an evaluation committee be set 
up by the Executive Board to 
determine which Senators 
deserve the honorarium. 





The committee, which consis- 
ted of Executive Board 
members and Cabinet mem- 
bers, had only the power to deny 
an honorarium to a senator by a 
two-thirds vote. Under this 
system, 11 senators' honorar- 
iums were voted down. 

The Senate did not accept the 
committee's report at that time, 
and David Upshaw moved that 
changes be made in the bill so 
that all wenators would receive 
the honorarium . Referring to 
the bill (74-001), Senator 

Upshaw said, "It was written in 
all good faith and I think that all 
Senators should get honorar- 

Debate continued, somewhat 
heatedly, as for what course to 
take. The majority of the 
senators indicated that honorar- 
iums should be awarded, but 
the proper way" to award them 
was not agreed upon. 

SG President Tory Buckley ' 
said that before any decision 
was made on his part 

concerning approval or vetoingi 
the measure, he wanted to know 
if his decision ' 'would bias any 
person in here (the senate) 
concerning the Executive Board 

Senators continued debate on 
the measmre. Only senators 
Glynne Hughes and Bart 
Cunningham offered negative 
debate, both concurring that no 
honorariums should be given. 
Senator James Boger warned 
the Senate, "If I don't get one, 

y u 


I'm not gonna be here next' 

As 4:30 p.m. arrived, too 
many senators had left for a 
quorum to be present, and the 
meeting had to be ended by 
Vice- President Ginchereau. 
The Senate will not reconvene 
until January 9, 1975.

SG Answers, Asked Questions 

:' i < J ' 

VP Wants Change 

News Editor 
Editor's NOTE: Dolor Ginchereau is an energetic 
and deeply concerned student. He truly cares 
about the future of Student Government and 
Palm Beach Junior College. In an effort to help 
keep the students informed Ginchereau 
consented to an informal interview. As SG 
vice-president and Senate President, he has 
proven to be a "natural resource" of talent and 

BEACHCOMBER: What has Student 

Government accomplished this year? 
Ginchereau: "When talking about SG I'd like to 
break it up into the Senate and the Executive 
Board, and I'd like to take you way back to 
August when the EB was invited to the faculty 
assembly on August 12. 

In that meeting, I outlined in a four minute 
speech, what I felt are the major goals of SG. 
These goals were to establish a rapport between 
SG and the Administration and I really think that, 
at least in this term, we've begun making great 
strides toward that because anything we've gone 
to them (administration) about we've been able 
to talk freely and the administration has been 
willing to talk to us. That is the first thing ^that 
SG has accomplished. 

Secondly we, the EB on behalf of Constance 
Holmes and myself, with the cooperation of the 
administration did reach a compromise, a plan 
we felt was workable to have the library open the 
last four Sundays of the Fall Term. 

Our third major accomplishment is in the area 
of the cabinet, last year I cannot recall SG having 
as many as three or four in (cabinet members) at 
one time as we do. 

Also we're finally getting our judicial board 
into operation and hopefully by the time the next 
term starts we'll be ready to go with that. 

So those are, I think, the major 
accomplishments and now that we have gotten 
the Questionaire Survey results we'll be setting 
up the used book sale over in SAC 11 beginning 
today. Ifthis works as I hope it will, that wOl be 
another major accomplishment of SG. 

Now when you speak of the senate, they have 
not really, aimed in the direction I thought I would 
like to have seen them aim this year and I'm 
hoping that in the Winter Term things will begin 
to develop. I think the last few resolutions 
introduced could be substance for some 
groundwork for things for the student body in the 

Overall SG has begun to do something. On the 
surface it may not seem so, but I think if you 
really examine what our goals were and what 
we've tried to do, SG has begun to move.

During a special Executive 
Board meeting Thursday, Dec-

Buckley asked for a S500 
honorarium for his work this 

"The president definitely has 
done enough for the student 
body to get $500," he declarea. 

The consensus of the 
committee was that the price 
was too high. 

"I think $450 is the minimum 
he should receive," said 
Senator James Soger. 

A motion was made to set the 
figure at S375. A vote was taken 
and affirmed him that figure." 

"I think I am worth many 

many many times more," 
commented the President. 

SG Treasurer David Lang 
asked for $300 but only got 

"If I weren't in SG I would be 
making money working, " he 
said. SG Vice President Dolor 
Ginchereau was awarded $250 
but would only accept $189.50. 

"There is no way I'm taking 
$250, it's too high," said 

SG Secretary Constance

money. "I don't tiiink we 
should receive any award," 
stated Holmes.

AsIc Grievance Committee To Help 

Continued from pg 2 
COMBER: What efforts have 
been made by the Executive 
Board to get to know the 

Ginchereau: First of all we 
began by wearing name tags to 
let the students know who we 
are. If they want to stop us in 
the halls or anyplace where we 
are, they certainly should and I 
hope they would. We've also 
gone to classes, Constance and I 
specifically, \yith the library 
question and talked to students 
about it. Also the Grievance 
Committee in the Senate might 
be able to help lis in this area by 
setting up and allowing the 
student body to come to them 
and say what is on theirminds. 
COMBER: Why has the EB 
failed to set up a Judicial Board? 
Ginchereau; I wouldn't say 
we really failed, I understand 
Tory (Buckley, SG president), 
who would give up the 
appointees, really talked to 
students and tried to get 
student's interested, and it just 
didn't seem to be going over. 
He talked to Larry Tuttle, 
Criminal Justice Director and 
the students in his (Tuttle's) 
classes just didn't seem to be 
interested, Perhaps I should 
have taken the ball when it 
wasn't getting done but I really 
felt it was the president's (Tory 
Buckley) responsibility to come 
to the EB and say these are my 
people I would like you to 
approve. Then we'll go to the 
senate and have them approve. 
COMBER: What do you thmk 
of the ability of the present 

Ginchereau : I think they have 
capabilities of doing something 
if they are really interested in 
the Student Body. I think we 
have some people within the 
senate that are interested in the 
student body and want to do 
something. This is why I am 
really hoping "and I'm going to 
be pushing and I may have to do 
re-organization in the senate to 
get the senate's energies 
together and push forward. The 
senate has the ability to do 
something and I don't think they 
are a mediocre body like some 
people do. 

COMBER: Should the present 
form of SG be dissolved ? 

Ginchereau: I think we 
certainly ought to investigate. 
the possibility of restructuring 
5G. The word dissolved bothers 
nie. It sounds like you want to 
do away with SG entirely and 

have nothmg to replace it. 
COMBER: What are the goals 
for SG during the Winter Terra? 

Ginchereau: I would like to 
see election reform to keep the 
foul-ups that happen in 
September from happening 
again. 1 would like to see action 
on the activity hour because the 
student body has expressed a 
desire for one. 

The senate should have 
regular meetings with people 
within the administration. 

Senators should learn how the 
budget is written for next term. 
They don't seem to understand 
the procedures the treasurer has 
to go through to get money. 

Finally I hope we have' more 
resolutions concerning the 
Student Body this year.

Plans for a new JC campus in 
Palm Beach Gardens' will be 
drawn soon. To date no 
planning firm has been engaged 
but a choice will be made in the 
near future. 

The site of the proposed 
project lies south of PGA 
Boulevard, next to the new 
county court complex. 

Mr. Richard Gross of the 
Biology Dept. was asked for his 
evaluation of the ecological 
value of the land. He 
accompanied a Beachcomber 
reporter on a tour of the 
proposed site. 

After viewing the area first 
hand, Gross reported that the 
overall habitat of the area 
consisted of typical pine 
flatwoods with associated cy- 
press. From the vegetation 
present he concluded that the 
land had not been overly 
disturbed. Natural vegetation is 
dominant in the area with only a 
few exotic forms. 

When the main campus in 
Lake Worth was constructed, 
good ecological planning was 
unheard of. Bulldozers stripped 
the native vegetation and the 
land was drained and filled. 

Today we have almost no 
native vegetation on our main 
campus. It has been replaced 

by exotic types such as the 
Melaleuca, which pose an 
ecological threat to existing 
native plant communities. 

Botany classes must travel 
miles on field trips to view 
native vegetaition in its natural 
state. Using proper conser- 
vation principles it is possible to 
create a showplace campus in 
Palm Beach Gardens. 

Be preserving some of the 
vegetation already found there 
and removing the exotics which 
currently inhabit the area, 
money could actually be saved. 
Native vegetation requires no 
watering or pruning or 
maintenance of any kind. Exotic 
plants would not have to be 

Science classes could utilize 
preserved areas as outdoor 

Space utilization is essential 
when planning any large 
complex such as a college 
campus. Of necessity there 
must be areas razed for parking 
lots, buildings, and athletic 
areas, but these could utilize 
existingfeaturesoftheland. As 
an example, on the property are 
several large areas consisting 
i4Jmost entirely of exotic 
melaleuca trees and very few. 
native plants. These areas 
would lend themselves well to 
parking lots or tennis courts. 
Large expanses of saw palmetto 
could be similarly used. 
Buildings should be built up, 
instead of out, in an effort to 
further reduce the decimation of 
the natural flora. 

New Game Room located in the 
North SAC lounge. 

New Game At JC 

JC has recently opened a 
gameroom in the North SAC 
Lounge. In the room are 2 pool 
tables, 2 TV tennis machines, 2 
pinball machines, and 1 air 
hockey game. A jukebox is on 
the way and two ping-pong 
tables might be taken from the 
school gym for the room. 

The American Music Com- 
pany rented the games to the 
school. The company is to 
receive 40% of the profits and 
the remaining 60% is used to 
pay for supervisors. 

Student ID's or Library cards" 
must be shown to the supervisor 
before pool cues and air hockey 
disks can be checked out. 

Approximately 40 to 50 
people are using the gameroom 
daily. The hours are 8:00 a.m. 
to 4:00 p.m. 

JC had a gameroom a. few 
years ago but it failed because 
the equipment was being stolen 
or broken. The supervisor is 
supposed to keep an eye on the 

SG says "It looks like a big 

success." "

Many Observe 
Jewish Holiday 

Staff Writer 

The birth of Christ, better 
known as Christmas to most 
people, is celebrated annually 
on December 25. Yet another 
holiday is celebrated by the 
people of the Jewish faith. 

"Hanukkah", as the Jewish 
holiday is known, is being 
celebrated from sunset Decem- 
ber 9 tili sundown on December 
18. On the Hebrew calendar, 
Hanukkah is observed on the 
25th day of the month of Kislev. 

Hanukah means the Feast of 
Rededication. The history of the 
holiday began when Alexander' 
the Great, who conquered 
Palestine, at his death left his 
province to one of his generals. . 
The Syrian King Antiochus 
ruled over the Jews and ordered 
them to put up statues of Greek 
gods in the temple of 

A few of the Jews cooperated 
until this point, but no one 
agreed to worship the Greek 
gods and forfeit the observance 
of their Sabbath. So, the Syrian 
King and his soldiers destroyed 
the temple of Jerusalem and 
tried to force the Jewish people 
to eat swine flesh, a forbidden 
food of their beliefs. 

Many faithful Jews were the 
first to fight for the worship 
rights of individuals and 
religious groups. 

The Jewish people led by an 
old Jewish priest started the 

rebellion against the Syrians 
and after three years the Jewish 
people conquered and drove the 
Syrians from the land and the 
temple. The temple was 
cleaned and rebuilt, statues of 
the Greek gods were broken and 
the holy temple was rededicated 
to God. So came the name - The 
Feast of Rededication. 

Usually, gifts are given only 
to children, unlike the celebra- 
tion of Christmas. The children . 
receive very inexpensive gifts 
the first seven nights and the 
eighth night a surprise gift is 

Hanukkah also means the 
Feast of Lights. When the 
temple was ready for rededi- 
cation the priests found only one 
little container of oil. They used 
this to light the great menorah 
(a popular symbol of Judaism 
that holds nine candles and 
originated from the Eternal 
Light which bums constantly in 
all synagogues.) Afraid it would 
not burn long they sent 
messengers to swiftly bring- 
more oil. However, the lights 
burned eight days until the 
messengers arrived. That is 
why Hanukkah is celebrated 
eight days and a candle is lit 
every day for eight days and 
afterwards blessings are re-

Happy New Year, and HAPPY

Creative Presents Cherished 

"I want," 'Tdlike," "I wish 
I'd get," are all common 
phrases heard around Christ- 

Christmas has traditionally 
become a time of the giving and 
receiving of gifts, ever since the 
magi brought the gold, 
frankincense and myrrh to the 
Christ Child. 

However, sometimes this 
poses a problem of what to buy 
for whom. In a very 

materialistic world there are 
very few presents that stand out 
as just the right one. 

On answer is a home-crafter 
present. Receiving a gift that is 
hand made with a lot of time and 
care goes beyond the gift itself. 
It shows a deep care for the 
person for whom the gift is 
intended. Such a gift is likely to 
stand out for it's individually 
made and therefore cherished. 
Such gifts can far outweight 

numerous material things that 
cost a lot of money but aren't 
exactly what you want to give. 

Creative presents, whether a 
craft or such talented works as 
poetry, stories and_^ songs, 
exhibit talent and care. 

The giving of Christmas gifts 
shouldn't be thought of as a 
joy rather than a chore, if we 
were to return to the old fashion 
ways of handmade gifts, each 
present would be a joy an 
individual expression of love. 

After all, why is it that 
parents cherish their children's 
"Works of art" and handmade 
cards? It's because they are 
hand made. If you looked 
through attics and old chests, 
you're more likely to find the 
handmade works of a child than 
materialistic gifts. Handmade 
gifts are made with care, 
patience and love. 
All these characteristics are 

Gift Seekers Create Havoc 

conveyed through gifts of a 
handmade nature, and what 
better gifts can we give at 
Christmas and all year but the 
gifts of care, patience, and love?

There has been a mass 
invasion on shopping centers! 
Everywhere there are gift-buy- 
ing, shoplift-trying, childpuU- 
ing, package-toting SHOP- 

Since no one can escapt the 
major onslaught; the best one 
can do is -escape alive. 

The first danger is stampede. 
Go to a shopping mall and you 
become one of thousands of 
people converging on merchan- 
dise. A shopper can only make 
it if he manages to get into the 
right lane of traffic. 

The next danger comes from 
the big crowds; bumping. No, 
not the dance. Doing this kind 
of bump provokes a dirty look 
from the ' 'bumpee' ' . Of course, 
they think the "bumper" is 
trying to pickpocket them. 

Although bumping into 
^someone is almost always 
accidental, pickpockets and 

purse thiefs probably have 
banner days during the holiday 
season. Shoplifters do, too, and 
It's literally a crime the way they 
operate. Keep a close eye on 
that lady who uses an open 
suitcase for a purse. 
. A lot of husbands end up 
sitting on benches while their 
wives browse. But, a man 
shopping is unique. 

"She's about your size," "A 
little bigger here, smaller 
there". . .many men never think 
to ask about sizes. 

And, though the common cold 
seems to be epidemic this time 
of the year, multiple "sniffs" 
can be heard from perfume 

Shopping at Christmastime is 
hectic, but it's part of the 
season, Yes, it is beginning to 
look a lot like Christmas. But, 
don't take the time to see how 
much. . .there are only eight 
more shopping days until Dec. 
25. ■

Feature Editor 

While December 25 is 
traditionally noted as America's 
greatest religions holiday of the 
year, the majority of PBJG's 
seventy fore'ign-ezchMige stn- 
dents have something else in 
mind when the term "Happy 
Holidays" is used. 

Altfaongh most Christians 
celebrate Ciuistmas for the 

same reason only in ii different 
manner, the Middle East, Aaia^ 
and the Eastern coantries 
worship in quite a different 

Religions practices are sect- 
divided, aod^ cannot be 
classified into specific coantries^. 
The main religions consist of 
Hinduism, Buddhism, and the 
Moslem, or Islamic i>eUef. 


Hinduism, the traditional religion of India, 
began about 2500 B.C., and has about 408 
mliion foUowers. Hindu's believe In a 
supreme and absolute power called Brahman, 
and feel that a man's soul most be reborn 
again and agidn nntll It becpmes pure enough 
to be united with him. In that state, men wiU 
take part in perfection. 

Patel Yogesh, a foreign exchange student 
from India, explains their greatest religious 
festival as being the ceibration of "the 
people's salvation &om the evil King Rama." 

"We call this celebration 'Diwaly, which 
lasts for two days and is held in the first or 
second week of November. Everyone cleans 
theb homes, dresses In their best clothes, and 
visits theh- neighbors," Yogesh explains. 

Buildings are lit up with candles, the 
townspeople celebrate with food and drink, 
and presents are exchanged. 

"This is also our New Year", he added, 
"Eveiyone wishes each other "Sahnnbatak" 
or Happy New Year. During the day we also 
go to the temple, then at night firecrackers are 
set off." 

GOGESH PATEL, a native of 
India, cites "Diwaiy" as his 
greatest religions holiday. 

Another important religion, which developed 
from Hindblsm-, is the belief founded by Gautama 
Buddha around 400 B.C. 

Buddhism, represented by over 165 million 
worshipers, encompasses ' the countries of 
Burma, Cambodia, Ceylong, Laos, Thailand, and 
Vietnam. Another form, the Mahayana 
Buddhism, includes China, Korea, Mongolia' and 
the. rest df Southeast Aisa. 

"Buddha means "fully enlightened", or 
"awakened one". The Buddhists, goal in life is 
Nirvana, a state of complete peace and love. 

Suksirislip Amorurut and Thavonpnsit 
Banhan, foreign exchange students from 
Thailand, explafai tiiehr Christmas holiday in this 

"Christmas In Thailand Is not the greatest 
event of the year sfaice almost "^70% of the 
population are Buddhists; nevertheless, 
Christians in Thailand do celebrate Joyfully bi 
many churches."

On Christmas eve, the Christians have their 
party either at home or church. Following these 
parties, which usually end up at midnight, the 
church member visit each others home, and on 
the mondng of December 25 they go to worship. 

For most of the people of Thailand, though, the 
greatest religious holiday is April 13, the day of 
the New Year. The Boddlsts bum candles, sing 
and dance, have parties, go to the temple in the 

On April 13, 14 and IS, flie people gatiier to 
tiirow water on each other . as a btrissing. 
Traditionally, the water is thrown on the older 
people, but the yonths often sway from the rules 
and throw the water on each other" stated 
Jesada Tankigthanongsuk, JC exchange student 
and native Thai. 

"In the northern part of Thailand, the people 
place something old, such as an article of 
clothing, in a river and let It wash away, 
symbolizing tiiefr bad luck gotag away" he 


Moslems are peole who 
practice the religion Islam, 
preached by Mohammed In 
600 A.D. The term Moslem 
comes (torn an Arabic word 
meaning "one who submits to 

The over 465 followers of tiie 
Islamic belief come from the 
Middle East, Nortii Africa, 
Southeast Asia and Pakistan, 
Malaysia and Indonesia. 

Moslems celebrate many 
events, the most important 
being the mourning of the 
death of Husaln, a grandson of 
Mohammed In 661 A.D. 

They also observe the 
Ramadan, or fasting. During 
the ninth mouth of the Moslem 
year, they may not eat or drink 
from dawn to sunset. 
Travelers, the sick, nursing 
mothers, and soldiers on the 
march are exempt, but must 
make up the days missed. 

Moslems joyfully ' celebrate 
the end of the fast in the 
three-day celebration of the 
Littie Bairam, or Festival of 
the reiJdng.

fRecord Review 

Zappa Is The Main Mother 

Frank Zappa owns twenty 
assorted guitars, hates the 
establishment, cites weakneisses 
in the system, doesn't trust 
anyone, wears his hair long and 
shaggy and heads the legendary 
Mothers Of Invention rock 

The lyrics to his songs are 
mostly clever satires about 
people, places, and life as it is 
seen through the eyes of Frank 
Zappa. And, as he will openly 
admit, he is a very good guitar 
player. Would you buy an 
album from this man? 

The double LP' 'Roxy and 
Elswhere' is a collection of real 

strong live rock energy captured 
from the Mothers U.S. tour 
during the winter and apring of 
this year. Unlike most live 
albums by other rock artists, the 
whole set consists entirely of 
new songs. 

Much of 'Roxy's' material 
holds much commercial poten- 
tial but will probably go 
unnoticed as compared to lesser 
vvorks by popular bands who get 
that way strictly by maintaining 
a friendly, favorable reputation 
with the media. Frank Zappa 
and the broadcast media are 
longtime enemies, so don't 

Jimmy Neil 

expect to hear any of this album 
or any other Mothers work given 
fair air play on your local radio. 

Songs like 'Penguin In 
Bondage' and 'More Trouble 
Every Day' are based primarily 
on the blues scale, in straight 
four/four time for the most part, 
and include rock out guitar solos 
by the master composer Zappa. 

His fingers moye up and 
down the fingerboard faster and 
more efficient than any other 
rock guitarist. His scale 
patterns and runs boggle the 
mind. His selection of notes is 

highly creative making for a

Music Majors Meet 

Staff Writer 

An excellent show or talent was displayed by music majors in 
the last music seminar of the term which was held Wednesday 
December 11. 

Music majors are required to perform in a seminar specializing 
on a chosen instrument or doing a vocal. 

Accompanied by Sharon Nelson on the piano Merja Poutianen 
sang Beau Soir by Debussy to begin the program. 

The seminar took an upbeat as Mike Poupard performed on 
the snare drum, "Etude for Snare FDrum" by Tuthill. Which 
was followed by a beautiful exhibition on the guitar by Tomothy 
Doherty, who played a Spanish ballet "Romanz in E Minor". 

Patti Dickenson then held the audiences . attention while she 
performed on the cello. 

Schuman's "Intermezzo" was dynamically played on the 
piano by Nell Bell. 

Betsy Pryor did na excellent rendition of ' 'Down by the Sally 
Garden" and was accompanied by Sharon Nelson on the piano. 

Daniel Stewart sang two numbers, "Die Forelle" by Schubert 
and "This World" by Bernstein, accompanied by Miss Ruth 
Ruggles, on piano. 

Linda Cooper displayed an outstanding talent as she sang 
"Tortorella" by Pietiaguia to the accompaniments of Miss 

Captivation of the audience was Craig Evans' desire, which he 
accomplished with his rendition of the Third Movement of 
Beethoven's "Pathetique Sonata" on the piano. 

Miss Ruggles again accompanied on piano as Edward Esposito 
sang two pieces "Widmung" by Schuman and "O Mistress 
Mine" by Quilter. 

Schubert's "Ave Maria" was done by Thomas Sye and 
accompanied by Angela Moffet on the piano. 

"Sonatina" by Hartley, was nicely performed by Nick Patsis 
on the trumpet with Miss Ruggles accompaning. Katheryn 
Koontz played the flute in "Poem" by Griffes and Denise O'Neil 
played the violin for Mozart's G Major Concerto" accompanied 
by Miss Ruggles to finish the program. 

Mr. Sy Pryweller, director for the Concert Band and Jazz | 
Ensemble, demonstrates his rhythmic expertise at the drums. | 

and the Jazz Ensemble was SyS 
Pryweller. i 

The whole show roused theS 
viewers spirits. "Merry g

Persctfiality Interviewer 

Late last Thursday night as 
the Beachcomber staff worked 
diligently on producing that 
week's paper. 

Suddenly, there was a 
rusding of wind, the pitter 
patter of little hoofs atop the 
office and a radiant red glow 
about the JC grounds. 

I knew at once it must be 
Santa Claus or this was one of 
the things that 30 cups of coffee 
in one day will do to you. But 
Santa Claus on Dec. 6? 

Believe it or not, the door to 
the office flung open and in

Wishing ail my many friends 

A Very Happy & Healthy New Year, 
and an Extra Special 
"Very Merry Christmas" 
from your real friend 

t Mike Dan 

f Miami, Florida 

thought I would just beat the 
Christmas rush. 

'Comber: Tell us Mr. Claus, 
what is it like flying from rooftop 
to rooftop delivering toys all 
over the world. Could you 
describe that sensation? 
Santa: Well, I'd say it's a 
natural high. Little Christmas 
iiumor there. Ho, Ho. 
'Comber: Ho, Ho try again. 
Santa; Well, you could kind of 
say that Christmas is my bag. 

'Comber: Yes, I guess you 

could, Santa. Those jokes Just 

sleigh me. What Is the one 

thing that you try never to forget 

when packing? 

Santa: Mistletoe. I never make 

a trip without it. At my age, a 

little artificial stimulus never 

hurt anyone. When you're 

immortal, you just kind of hit a 

peak after 20 or 30 centuries. 

Ah, but it's just a fad. Say, have 

you ever had a mistletoe 


'Comber: Mistletoe cocktail? 

Santa: Yes. One drink and 

you'll pucker up to anything 

organic for a week? Old 

Rudolph got into three of those 

last Christmas. 

'Comber: So that explains his 

red nose. 

Santa: No, he was born with 

that. But, every time we flew 

over a zoo he wanted to go down 

and fill a giraffe's neck with 


'Comber: Santa, back to you. 

Has the energy crisis affected 

you and If so, what have you 

done to fight it? 

Santa: Yes, it has. I've cut my 

reindeer down from eight to six 

and if you've noticed, Rudolph's 

nose is even dimmer.. But, I 

may have a tough time 
delivering toys in America this 
year. My reindeer don't seem 
to meet the E.P.A. pollution 

control standards for 1974. 

'Comber; I find It amazing that 

someone actually lives at the 
North Pole. 

Santa: Oh, come on now, you 
don't actually believe that. 
Everyone knows that no one can 
live at the North Pole. 
'Comber: But, Mr. Claus, if you 
don't live at the North Pole, 
where do you make all those 

Santa: Make all those toys I 
You've got to be kidding. I 
thought everyone knew I was a 
middle man for Mattel. 
'Comber; Well, Santa, just to 
keep your Image up, how cold 
does it get at the North Pole? 
Santa: Let me put it this way. It 
was so cold this morning that 
when I got up I accidently 
bumped into an end table and 
my underwear shattered. 
Pardon me, but I must be going. 

You see, I've left my sleigh 
double parked and the campus 
police are depositing citations 
all over it. That's right 
Rudolph, eat them., 
'Comber: Well, Santa, It 
certainly has been a pleasure 
talking to you. I only wish 
someone else could have been 
here to see you. Yon certainly 
are interesting and showed me 
an entirely different side of you. 
Santa: Oh really? Which side, 
my left or my right? Well, it 
was a pleasure for me also. 
Merry Christmas to all - that's it

"Beatlemania. . .affects all 
social classes and all levels of 
intelligence. There has been 
adulation before. . .but no one 
has taken the national fancy as 
have the Beatles," reported 
Frederick Lewis in the New York 

These words conclude the 
astonishing effect the Beatles 
have had on society. 

As a group, the Beatles sold 
well over 30 million records in 
the United States, surpassing all 
previous fightes. Besides being 

considered the biggest act in the 
history of show business, the 
Beatles becanrie the. first 
recording artists to have a 
record become a milion seller 
before its release! 

Performing under the gui- 
dance of their late manager 
Brian Epstein, the Beatles 
signed a recording contract that 
vtfas to be followed by the 
release of their first single, 
"Love Me Do," in 1962. Selling 
100,000 copies, make it the last 
time a Beatle single sold less 
than a half -million. 

"She Loves You," released in 



Vintage Beatles ■ Ringo Starr, George Harrison, John Lennon and Paul McCartney [left to right, 
flanking Ed Sullivan] as they appeared in their first American television appearance in 1964. 

1963,, became their first 
"English" million seller. It was 
followed by the single, "Please 

Paul, John, Ringo and George back in '64. 

Please Me" and two albums 
entitled, "With the Beatles," 
and "Introducing the Beatles." 

They then released their first 
million seller in the U.S., 
"Want to Hold Your Hand." 

The Beatles first release on 
the Capitol label, "Meet the 
Beatles," was a huge success, 
making it one of the largest 
selling albums of all time. 

There was no stopping them, 
at this point. They were bound 
to reach all heights of success. 

As years passed, they 
produced one million sellers 
after another. The "consisten- 
cy" in the song writing of 
Lennon and McCartney was 
probably the most influential 
agent in the Beatles' success as 
a group. Today .McCartney and 
Lennon hold the distinction of 
being the most successful song 
writers in the world. 

When the Beatles toured the 
United States. In 1964 and 1965, 

they proved that they were as 
exciting in the flesh as on vinyl. 
In their first television appea- 
rance on the Ed Sullivan Show 
in 1964 the Beatles were a huge 

From that time, "Beatles" 
became a household word. Fan 
clubs sprang up across the 
civilized world while Beatle 
Buttons, Wigs, Tea Shirts, 
Nightgowns, Magazines, and 
believe it or not, even Beatle 
Nut Ice Cream were being sold 
in large quantities. 

The big question at that time 
was "how long would this sheer 
mania continue?" Most 
thought that it was just a fad 
that would die out in due time. . 
little did they know! 

To this very day Beatle music 
is just as popular as it was when 
it was released.

With Christmas break three 
days away, an inner desire 
among the JC baseball players 
will be fulfilled. That desire is 
to get back to full scale practice. 

The Pacers open just three 
days after the Winter Term 
begins with the Ft. Lauderdale 
Baseball School. The Friday, 
Jan. to game at 7:30 p.m. is to 
be played at the Texas Rangers 
facilities in Pompano. 

The first eleven games are 
exhibition with the baseball 
school, yet the Pacers will go all 
out. according to Head Coach 
Dusty Rhodes. 

The players are on a running 
program now to get in shape. 
The personnel who will be in 
town over Christmas break are 
practicing everyday at 10 a.m. ■ 

Many battles will be staged 
for starting positions, yet 
Rhodes says he will use 

Mike Rowe, 6' 1" freshman 
from West Palm Beach and' 
Jerry Walter, 6' 3" sophomore 
from Manitowic, Wise, two 
power hitters, will battle for first 

Second base is wrapped up by 
Glenn Rogers, a 5'8" hometown 
freshman. Bob Benda, also 
5' 8" has a good jump on 
shortshop. He is a native of 
North Palm Beach. 

Dave Lang, a 5' 11" 
sophomore from Waukegan, III. 
who batted .290 last year, will 
get a run for his money on third. 
His competition is Tom 
McCoilugh who "came in and 
made it on his own" according 
to Rhodes. McCoullgh lead the 
club this fall in total hits. 

The outfield is centered 
around powerful Sam Testa. 
Testa, a six footer from Lake 
Worth had eight RBI's in two 
games against Dade-North this 
fall. Flanking Testa, left field, 
is Bob Morrisey, a 5' 11" 
sophomore from Howard Beach, 
N.Y. In right field is Skip 
Walker, a six footer from Palm 
Reach Qardens. 

Also seeing plenty of action 
will be John Inglis, a S'll" 
speedster from WPB. He has a 
chance to break Tommy Clark's 
stolen base record of 25. 

The Florida State Jr. College 
League uses the designated 
hitter, and Rich Sorise will fill 

the 197S Pacers Baseball team [from I to r] first row, Glenn Kogers [IS], Mark Rusinko [36], Bill Kirk ]38], John Ingles [2S], 
Bob Morrisey [20], Dan Destout [21]., and Bob Benda [16]. The second row includes Terry Dreher [27], Kenny Rogers [23], Ed 
Boyle [263, Dave Lang [18], Skip Walker [24], Rich Sorise [33] and Sam Testa [32]. The top row Includes Ed Fisher [29], Ross 
Baumgarten [30], Tom McCuUough [17], Hod Jones [31], Jerry Walter [35], Andy McGaffigan [28], Julian Rodrignes [19], Mike 
Rowe [34] and head coach Dusty Rhodes [22]. 

that position for the Pacers. 

Rhodes' biggest headache 
will be the catching position. 
Bill Kirik, Dan. Destout and 
Mark Rusinko all have a shot at 
the starting post. "I got three 
catchers and I couldn't even^tell 
you who its going to be," 
explained Rhodes. . Of the 22 
players, seven are pitchers. 
Terry Deher, Ed Boyle, Ed 
Fisher, Ross Bauymgarten, Rod 
Jones, Andy McGaffin, and 
Julian Rodriquiez will handle 

the throwing chores this season. 
"They are all starters, and all 

Rhodes went on to say, "This 
year we have speed. We're 
going to run. They :our. 
opponents; are going to have to 
make up their minds because 
they're going to have to throw 
us out. I don't believe in 
defensive baseball. If that 
catcher is going to be an 
All-American, he's going to 
have to do it every time."

"Man for man, I don't see anyone who can handle us. It's a 
matter of us doing the job." 

Those are the optimistic words of the Pacers' young, energetic 
new head baseball coach. Dusty Rhodes. 

Rhodes,* beginning his first season at the helm, will guide 22 
ball players in 48 games this season.

strong possibility of

These are exhibition games for the Pacers, but Rhodes will 
pull all of the strings. "I'm planning to use everybody I got, ant 
we'll go all out." 

Rhodes said of Fred Ferrai's school, "When we play them, 
they'll have the younger guys from the major and minor leagues 
that are getting ready for spring training. 

"Last year they beat Dade-North, who were second in the 
nation a couple of time. North had 11 or 12 players go on to four 
year schools and a couple signed." 

Looking toward the season, "Dade-North, South, Downtown, 
and Browardwill be our competition."

Bowlers Cap 
Fall Season 

Staff Writer 

Trophies were awarded and 
weeks of intramural bowling 
were capped by a party held at 
Corky's Pizza Wednesday. 

Brian Richards and Sharon 
Nelson received trophies for 
high averages - Richards' was 
177, Nelson's was 154. 

Receiving trophies for high 
series were Bill Brown and 
Richards, high men's series, 
586, and Donna Marotta, high 
women's series, 525. 

Jody Salzgeber got a trophy 
for high women's game, 212,- 
as did Kim Heinicka for the 
men 227. 

The teams in first place 
were "The Ups and Downs," 
consisting of Salzgeber, Jan 
Kisker, Margie Immel and 
Ingrid Sainio. The men's 
leading team was "The Best", 
with Kent Knox, Richards, 


Huniberto Munoz and Larry 
Wheeler. ; 

The bowlers chipped in and 
bought Coach Bell a plaque 
-saying "Thanks" for helping 
lo get the intramural bowling 
into full swing for the fall 

Special to 'Comber 

"There is something in intramurals for everyone." 

This is the phrase which one hears coach Roy Bell state 
repeatedly in description of his program. 

There is also someone in intramurals from everywhere. 

Take Kathy Wilk and Dawn Pastore, two different girls with 
two different backgrounds, both members of the Intramural and 
Recreation Board which governs the activities. 

"1 like to work around sports," said Wilk, who helped 
organize the I&R Bowling Tournament this fall. 

Wilk, a freshman , took times and handled the statistics for the 
track team at her alma mater. Twin Lakes High in West Palm 

The work on the I and R Board is a volunteer job for Wilk, who 
will qualify for a paid position at the beginning of the winter 
term. ' 

"We do lot of clerical work," said Wilk. "We have to keep 
track of all the students who are participating in all of the sports 
offered by the intramural program." 

According to Wilk, this includes a running total of 
participations to accurately decide how many people are active in 
which of the varied programs. 

Wilk is studying for an A.S. degree in Recreational ' 
Leadership, but has one other main ambition for a career. 

"I would like to be a stewardess," said Wilk. "After I get my 
degree here at JC, I would like to try to attend one of the training 
schools around the country." 

According to Wilk, the air training schools like their entrants 
to get at least two years of college before registering for classes. 

"Flying was something I always wanted to do," said Wilk. 

Pastore was. almost a victim of her environment. 

"When I was younger, all of the people in my neighborhood 

lat were my own age were boys," she said. "Because I was 
Iways around boys, I became very mterested in sports at an 
early age." 

After leaving her birthplace hi Hartford. Conn., Pastore moved 
to Lake Wor^h, where she attended John I. Leonard High School. 

At .Leonard, she was named the Most Valuable Womati 
Athlete after her senior year. 

Pastorfcservejd as president of the Girls' Athletic Associatiop 
and took an active part m all the women's sports. 

She also played irf-the annual GAA "powderpuff basketball 
game" where he; team won in both her junior and senior years. ' 

Pastore is majoring in Physical Education, with hopes of 
eventually becoming a teacher.; 

"1 like sports and I like hei^^g people. I think I could teach 
children something I know well - physical education." 

Pastore is the student director of the intramural program, and 
is m charge of all the somen's activities for I and R.

f |iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!] 

On the left Dr. Harold 
Manor makes a point during 
an emergency faculty meet- 

On the right somber faculty 
members are being told that 
for the first time in the history 
of JC there will be limited 
enrollment because of eco- 
nomic pressures, 


Lake Worth, Florida 33460 

JCCops Enrollment 


General enrollment into Palm 
Beach Junior College will be 
limited for the first time in JC's 
history. Economic pressures 
are forchig the administration to 
cap enrollment for Spring I and 
Spring II semesters. 

A recent cutback of $169,217 
of ■ state funds coupled with 
soaring enrollments in the 
current winter term were cited 
, as two of the main reasons for 
the cutback by JC president Dr. 
Harold Manor during an 
emergency faculty meeting held 
Wednesday, Jan. 15. 

Dr. Manor told the faculty 
less than 12,000 student 
semester hours will remain to be 
funded by the state this year 
because of the enrollment 
funding cap. 

Last year over 12,000 
semester hours were enrolled in 
Spring I. If the same thing 

happens this year, and it is 
expected, then there would be 
no money left for Spring II.' 

"We will be forced to divide 
our remaining funding between 
the two terms, and to cut off 
enrollment when we reach the 
limit," Dr. Manor told his grim 

He said students already 
enrolled would be given 
priority, and that if spaces 
remained for new students they 
would probably be served on a 
date of application basis. 

"Any enrollment cap ultimat- 
ely limits the economic potential 
of Florida," said Manor. 

In addition to limiting 
enrollment. Dr. Manor is 
recommending a four day week 
during the two spring terms and 
a budget review to reduce 
spending by $120,000. He

Courses of Personalized System of instruction (^P.S.T ) are 
. . 111^ ;.cld ..1 the library at JC. 

P.S.I, can be characterized as having no conventional 
classroom. There is no set class time and .the student is 
independent. The student may use the library facilities. He 
is expected to organize his own time. A proctor and class 
book are there for his use. 

This system of study was introduced a decade ugo when 
two professors. Dr. Fred Keller i^i Dr. Gil Sherman, were 
invited by the government of '• ■ ■ : i' ■reate ii'^w n.etii>'ds of 

Mr. Rpnjamin Robeiis, who heads P.S.I, at JC says, "This 
sy.Mcm .ii personali/ed iMStnicti< ' Is studi.nis a variety 
of pro.yranis winch are frequi .> u available by more 
traditioinil methods."' 

Although there are no legal rcouirements Hv "ir iment in 
P.S.I, -lasses in the traditional way, these col.. st > aio listed 
on class print-out sheets. An option on enrolling at any time 
for P.S.I, is given. Students enrolling later can get an add slip 
from the registrar. Althougii the student may enroll at his 
convenience, he is evpected to complete this u nrk by the end 
of a 16 week semester. 

There are two advantages for the student in P.S.I. The 
system is a self-paced one. Exams are given indivi dually

Another .idvantage of P.S 1. is a silf-paced program, the

Although the technology and enterprise classi. . are not 
transferrable, the student can gain ci-dit needed for

There are seven courses iffered with personalized 
instruction at JC: History of Technology, Introduction to 
Research Material, Creative salesmanship, and Enterprise in 
South Eastern Florida. 

P.S.I, is growing in popularity. Its metho'^s of study aro 
now applied in schools thiuughout Canada, I nited States,

Enrollment Record Set 

Associate Editor 

• An all-time Winter term 
record 7,410 students are now 
enrolled at JC, according to 
figures released by Registrar 
Laurence Mayfield. 

Though the current enroll- 
ment is less than the Fall term 
student population of 7,448, 
Mayfield indicated that the drop 
was less than the normal ten per 
cent decrease between major 

JC's 3,795 day students 
outnumber the 3,615 evening 
students, a reversal of the Fall 
term when there were more 
night enrolees. 

"With the economic situation 
as it is," commented Mayfield, 
"more students are coming as 
full-time day students. Before, 
when they had jobs, they 
worked during the day and came 
to school at night." 

Here is the current break- 
down of students at JC's main 

Lucy Stops Smoking 

Air pollution and the 
respiratory diseases it causes 
were the topics presented by the 
American Lung Association in 
the Lucy Booth Jan. 15th. 

David Baker and Sandra 
Kessler, program administra- 
tors for the Lung Association, 
presided over the booth which is 
occupied by various charitable 
groups during the college year. 
They offered information and 
referral services for people 
concerned about the effects of 
air pollution. 

Students who visited the 
booth were interested in 


smoking, according to Kessler. 
Kessler said- about 35 students 
inquired about smoking and 
how to quit. 

Smoking, how to quit, and the 
rights of non-smokers were the 
subjects of a booth sponsored 
last year by the ALA, acording 
to Kessler. 

Because of the high level of 
campus interest about smoking, 
Kessler proposed setting up a 
free class discussion on the 
subject and the rights of 
non-smokers. The class would 
be mediated once a week by a 
JC professor.

Mayfield felt registration 
went smoother than the Fall 
term, primarily because of the 
time factor. "For the Winter 
term we started registration the 
first week in November. 
Therefore, the process is 
scattered out over a longer 
period of time," said Mayfield. 

Emphasizing that drop/add 
was lower than ever before, 
Mayfield indicated that "most 
of our classes are filled to 

Classes most in demand 
included English 101, tennis, 
self-defense, and chemistry. 

"By and large, I think 
everyone got about what they 
wanted," said Mayfield. 

No definite dates have been 
set, but Mayfield expects 
pre-scheduling for Spring I and 
the Fall term to begin at the end 
of March.

StudentsTo Vote On Amendments 

By Joel Tanen 
Staff Writer 

The SG Senate Thursday agreed to hold the Special 
Elections on Feb. 7th and 8th instead of Jan. 29th and 30th. 

The student body is asked to vote on Constitutional 
Amendments and three yes or no questions. 

The questions are as follows: "Should athletics receive 
one-third of your activity fee as presently is being done? 
Should the SGA be abolished in its present form and be set up 
as a student committee? Do you want a yearbook?" 

Secretary of Elections Mark Graham said only one voting 
machine will be used in the elections and under his^ 
supervision. . 

The average number of votes for past elections sjjiEiEean the 
140 range. SG plans to put posters around the campus and 
publicize the elections in a newsletter to be printed "as often 
as -possible;" 

A resolution setting up a "Standing Rules" committee was 
passed after short debate. 

The resolution written by Senator Sam Putt gives the 
committee power to receive all legislation before being 
introduced on the Senate floor. By majority vote, the 
committee can pigeonhole or send a bill to the floor. 

Putt defended his resolution by saying the Senate can 
accomplish "a minimum of twice as much work as we do 

Opposition came from Senator Robert Roberts. 

"How will you be able to set up an agenda?," asked 

"If we pass this thing we're just making another committee 
when in fact we already have committees established now to 

do what this committee is going to do," he argued. 

The Senate passed, a resolution written by Senator Rob 
Abrams asking that "Roberts Rules of Order, Revised 
Newly", in paperback, replace "Parliamentary Law At a 
Glance" for all SG officials. 

Under the Constitution, SG is bound to "Roberts Rules of 

"We're saving money. It doesn't have any discrepancies," 
said Abrams. 

Senator Sue Keen was elected as the first female President 
Pro Tem in JC history. 

SG officials were surprised that Keen defeated three male 
opponents. Her leadership ability was not questioned. 

The Grievance Committee set up last term meets every 
Thursday in the cafeteria, 11-12:00 noon. Students are 
welcome to present their gripes to the committee. 

Chairperson Rob Abrams, of the Constitutional 
Amendments Revision Committee, said he is making 

"We've been getting lots of constitutions everyday. We 
meet every Monday night to set the world on fire," Abrams 

SG President Tory S. Buckley asked the Senate to get 
"feedback" about the Galleon yearbook. 

Senators received name tags last week. Nine Senate seats 
are presently vacant. SG has received 11 applications for 
those seats. 

Referring to the Special Elections, Vice President Dolor 
Ginchereau "urges" all students to vote.

Get Into FAU 


Associate Editor 

Procedures for admission to Florida Atlantic University 
may now be completed at the JC campus through the 
cooperative efforts of the Student Personnel Department and 
FAU's Admissions personnel. 

Each Friday, FAU Admissions staff member Bill McCray is 
available from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Guidance Center, 
AD-l . JC students have the opportunity to make apointments 
with McCray to discuss and complete admission procedures. 
According to Marian C. McNeely, guidance counselor, 
"FAU and JC personnel alike, feel this is another major 
service designed to meet the needs of present and former JC 

In a recent interview with the Beachcomber, FAU's 

McCray outlined the current relationship between JC and 

FAU, the nation's first successful upper division university. 

Now 10 years old, FAU is specifically designed for the 

junior college graduate or transfer student. 

"The atmosphere is more condusive to learning than most 
universities," comments McCray. "Everyone is at a point 
where they know where they are going - what they want to 

When FAU hosted a junior college day in the fall, few JC 
students were in attendance. But with FAU's main campus 
just 13 miles away, McCray hopes underclassmen will take an 
afternoon off to experience the convenience of the Boca Raton 

FAU's student population of 6000 includes 888 JC 
graduates. "There is not a measurable grade difference," 
explains McCray, "between JC graduates and students who 
transfer from four-year universities." 

Also on the plus side is that once you arrive at FAU, you are 
probably going to remain and graduate. McCray points out 
that FAU's success rate is "much greater compared to the 
high atti-ition rate at Junior Colleges." 

The JC-FAU relationship extends beyond simple 
admissions procedures. JC's south campus is located at 
Henderson School on the FAU campus, with students using 
FAU's fVacilities and JC's instructors. 

In return, FAU offers local students business and 
educational courses at the Palm Beach Center on 45th Street 
in West Palm Beac
