Nursing program approved for fall start
The way has been cleared for Lycoming to begin offering
its Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree program
Without change, the Pennsylvania Board of Nurse
Examiners has approved the four-year program. The
approval, the final consent needed, opened the door for
Lycoming's Admissions Office to begin accepting
applications from prospective nursing students.
'It's a good feeling to know the first class of nursing
students will be able to enter Lycoming next fall," said Dr.
Frederick E Blumer, President, "It's also gratifying that
our program has been approved without qualification and
without any delays We are excited Baccalaureate nursing
represents a new chapter in the history of Lycoming
The nursing panel approved the program as presented
by Dr. Janet A. Rodgers, professor and chairman of the
nursing department, and Dr. Shirley Van Marter, Dean
"I am delighted that the approval process has come to
such a successful end, " Dr Van Marter said. "Many other
nursing programs have had to return to the nursing board
several times before receiving final approval. I think the
quick approval is a tribute to the quality of the program
and its chairman."
As designed by Dr. Rodgers. Lycoming's program will
accept up to 80 students per year. During the first two
years, nursing students will take courses needed to meet
Lycoming's arts and sciences requirements for a
baccalaureate degree as well as an introductory nursing
course. During their final two years, nursing students will
concentrate on professional courses and have clinical-
learning experiences at hospitals and health-care agencies.
Start-up cost of the new program is estimated at
$350,000 to $400,000. with most expenditures going
toward the equipping of a nursing laboratory in the
Academic Center Lycoming has applied to the federal
Appalachian Regional Commission for a $100,600 grant to
help cover initial expenses Preliminary indications are
that the application will be approved.
Work on the laboratory in the lower level of the library
is expected to begin in the near future. The laboratory will
include up to eight patient-simulated units and storage
space for supplies and equipment.
Lycoming also will soon begin recruiting faculty for the
nursing program. Although the number of nursing faculty
members will be determined by the program's enrollment,
it is estimated that 12-15 instructors will be needed
eventually to teach nursing courses.
Clinical-learning experiences for student nurses will take
place at hospitals and other health-care settings
throughout northcentral Pennsylvania, although primarily
in Lycoming County. A number of hospitals and health
care agencies in the area have agreed already to accept
Lycoming nursing students.
More detailed information on the nursing program and
admission to Lycoming is available by calling or writing
the Admissions Office.
Student spotlight: Scott Jensen, cartoonist
Whether there is a controversy over too many potholes
in a road or a change of leadership in the Oval Office.
Scott Jensen usually has something to say about it — in not
too many words.
A mass communications major at Lycoming, the
sophomore from Delhi, N.Y.. aspires to be an editorial
cartoonist. Since age 14. the witty 19-year-old has created
hundreds of cartoons poking fun at various people, places,
and things of local or national concern. He gets his
messages across in a single four-by-six-inch frame-
Since 1979. )ensen has been sending most of his work to
the Delaware County Times, a weekly newspaper in
Delhi He draws the cartoons in his spare time and mails
them in several weeks ahead nf press time In the summer
and on vacations, Jensen also works there as a feature
writer and photographer
Jensen's cartoons regularly appear on the editorial page
According to the sophomore, their content may or may
not reflect the paper's own opinion.
"I won't sign my name to anything I don't agree with,"
Most of his cartoons are political. In 1980. )ensen won
an honorable mention from the New York State
Newspaper Association for a one-frame cartoon featuring
Gov. Hugh Carey's proposed cuts in the state university
Despite such recognition, Jensen said, it sometimes
causes problems for his father because people associate

his views with mine, Nevertheless, Jensen stays in touch
with political issues in his own town and elsewhere.
That's what happens when you live in a small town,"
said Jensen, You always know what's going on ."
Jensen has taken several political science courses at
Lycoming. There is no set advice for becoming a
successful cartoonist," he said. The best thing to do is get
a broad education."
Jensen said his art courses at Lycoming have greatly
helped his drawing ability. "My work has really
improved," he said.
Jensen explained that when he first started drawing
cartoons, his characters looked like they were out of Gary

This cartoon shows the talent of Scott Jensen.
One evening not long ago after an especially long and
exhausting day, 1 found myself wondering what it is that
truly refreshes the weary I could almost hear the voice of
my grandmother saying, "When your body is tired, work
your mind; when your mind is tired, exercise your body!"
It is good advice— but there is more to be said.
Much of the exhaustion 1 observe around me, like the
most oppressive fatigue I experience personally, is caused
by worry. Anxiety bums more emotional calories than
some people have stored. Our most exhausting tasks are
exhausting because they present us with problems for
which we have no ready solutions, perhaps problems that
belong to others about whom we care deeply. We assume
their plight as our very own because we care, even it we
have little or no opportunity to shoulder it
There are surely many other sources of oppressive
fatigue. Most people seem to have more work to do than
bme allows them to get done and more problems to face
than energy to cope. Consequently, it is intriguing to
watch how they muster what it takes to carry on. More
often than not. the successful ones apply grandma s
advice: when their bodies are tired, they exercise their
minds and when their minds are tired, they jog!
But do you know what is the most refreshing exercise of
all7 Although I cant cite psychological experiments to
verify my thesis, 1 have found that the most refreshing
remedy for fatigue, whether mental or physical, is
meditation— pondering unhurriedly some idea really
If our technological society is wearing you ragged, if the
frantic pace around you is burning out your circuits, then I
recommend the pause that really refreshes: time spent in
uninterrupted thought about a great idea. Tired people
should brush up on their Shakespeare! And a weary
society should go back to college!
The nice thing about working at a college is that even
those things that wear you out are refreshing!
Keys to success? Campus notes
Hard work and commitment rank ahead of intelligence
and education as major factors leading to success in the
business world, according to a number of highly paid and
successful young executives.
When the Los Angeles consulting firm of Hergenrather
St Company asked a nationwide sample of successful
young executives what made the difference in their early
successes, the majority said brain power and education
helps, but hard work and commitment are more important
More than half of the respondents to the survey— all
executives aged 40 and under who earn $75,000 to
$200,000 annually— indicated that formal education was
useful primarily in opening doors during job searches
Great intelligence offered only marginal advantages, they
The Hergenrather survey confirmed the results of an
earlier poll of young executives who said that
determination is the key to success
Half of the executives said they were personally
responsible for motivating themselves to early successes.
None of them cited money as the primary inspiration of
their commitment and hard work
The factor that drove most of the surveyed executives
was the satisfaction gained from their accomplishments

WRLC-FM radio: If s 'The Different One'
By Welles B Lobb. Assistant Editor
Mike Hamm adjusts a black knob on the console, waits
for Van Morrison's "Wavelength" to fade out. and then
speaks into the microphone
After identifying the music and the artists of the
previous set of songs, the dark-haired disc jockey tells the
time and reads a public-service announcement about the
perils of excessive drinking. Then before starting a new set,
he identifies himself and the radio station he represents:
WRLC-FM — The Different One."
Hamm, a Lycoming junior from Vienna. Va., is one of
18 deejays on the staff of WRLC-FM, the college radio
station He broadcasts the "Hamm Program"' for four
hours on Monday evening from a studio on the second
floor of Wertz Student Center
Licensed by the Federal Communications Commission
as a 10-watt educational station, WRLC attempts to
execute its mandate by providing a variety of "alternative"
types of music for its listeners.
"We're trying to educate people into liking music other
than rock, "said Karen Lauffer, of Summit, N.J.. station
WRLC recently strengthened its committment to
alternative music when it adopted its motto: The
Different One "
Although a majority of the deejays' tastes are reflected
in their rock n' roll /new wave formats, shows featuring
bluegrass, jazz, (oik, religious and reagae music are
regularly heard on 01 7. Classical music is aired three
hours on weekdays.
"We don't wail on the Top 40, "said Lauffer, a
sophomore who is planning a career in radio or television
broadcasting. A firm supporter of program variety,
Lauffer nevertheless recognizes this format's drawbacks.
"You can't try to attract too much of a different
audience," she said "People generally turn the dial and
leave it there "
Rock fans, for example, are likely to set the dial where
they can depend on hearing the same songs, played by the
same personality behind the mike. At WRLC, there's no
such security. Fans get whatever is the taste of the deejay,
and the delivery could come from any of several staff
The format, thus, creates something of an identity
While Hamm played some soft rock, station manager
Cecily Gardner, of Philadelphia, entered the studio and
addressed this problem. She picked up the telephone and
called the Student Union Board (SUBl game room, located
downstairs from the studio WRLC is supposed to be
heard in the SUB, she said. Instead, another station
played The senior's call was effective, the Hamm Program
soon filled the SUB
Intentional or not, the SUB's tune out of WRLC
symbolizes the station's identity problem. According to
Hamm, WRLC is an under publicized operation with
minimal influence on local audiences. Only a small
percentage of Lycoming students are regular listeners, he
After nearly six years of broadcasts, WRLC remains a
fledgling operation. Its equipment is problem-prone; its
facilities cramped Like many tiny stations, it struggles to
Mike Hamm takes his tum behind the microphone in WRLC's srudic
gain a loyal audience.
Still, WRLC has lived with these problems Another less
technical problem however, is cutting its very lifeline: a
free supply of new records from recording companies to
tiny stations like WRLC was eliminated in 1980 by the
suppliers. The lifeline of a radio station that attempts to
present a progressive music format is new albums
A financial squeeze in the record industry forced the cut,
according to Hamm. WRLC's own financial situation
prohibits it from buying new records, said Gardner, so
dejays fill their air-time slots with songs from personal
album collections and the station's aging record library.
This problem can be eliminated, however, if the FCC
approves WRLC's application to expand its power from 10
to 7b8 watts. That application is currently in Washington,
D.C , awaiting action.
Expansion will at least double WRLC's present listening
range of five miles, according to Dr. Malthon Anapol,
professor of mass communications and the station's
1 think it (WRLC) will become both a campus and a
community station," he said.
When the expansion is approved. WRLC will have to
buy a new transmitter and make other technical
adjustments to accommodate the extra power. Approval,
expected without a hitch, could come tomorrow or in six
months, station members say. Business involving 10-watt
stations is a low priority item with the FCC, Hamm said.
While the station waits, its staff is gearing up for
WRLC's annual music marathon — a 90-hour campaign to
raise operating funds and increase public awareness. It is
held midway through every spring semester. Teams of two
deejays man the studio for shifts of 30 straight hours,
accepting pledges and wooing for more.
Staff spirits are high during marathon weekend, said
Hamm. who shares a slot with his roommate. Rich Ryan,
of Harrisburg. the station's self-labeled "Rock Animal."
Last year, WRLC collected more than $800 during the
Staff spirits could even be higher this year if the FCC
approval arrives before the marathon. That approval
should allow WRLC to tum the comer from an
experimental to a professional educational radio station.
Eventually, when deejays like Rich Ryan answer the
studio telephone with, "WRLC, you've got the Rock
Animal,'' listeners around Williamsport should know who

for John Lennon in Copley Square Plaza, Boston, and
again at the Dec 13, 1981, service on the first anniversary
ofLennon's death at the Community Church of Boston.)
With John Lennon s tragic death, many people are
mourning that the dream is over: that the years of
dreaming of the Beatles reuniting wilt never occur now,
that Lennon s own creativity has ended— the dream is
According to John Lennon, the whole point of his and
the Beatles' message is that you are the dream. The dream
is not over; you are the dream.
That's what Lennon meant 14 years ago when he called
Christianity into question saying, "Christianity will go It
will vanish and shrink. , .We're more popular than Jesus
now." Lennon continued, "Christianity., .seems. ..to be
shrinking, to be losing contact. Jesus message had been
garbled by his disciples and twisted for a variety of self-
serving reasons by those who followed, to the point where
it has lost its validity for many in the modern age."
Certain "defenders of the faith" wanted to "Ban the
Beatles," if not bum Lennon at the stake.
At that time, back in 1966, 1 took my three daughters to
the Beatles concert at Suffolk Downs, and then wrote an
article called "Why the Beatles Are More Popular Than
Jesus, " which appeared in the Boston Sunday Herald
Magazine. I said that Lennon was right, and that instead of
calling him a heretic we should learn from what he is
telling us about our young people and institutionalized
Christianity— that it is the irrelevance of Christianity that
breeds irreverence in young and old alike. The dream is
you, Lennon said.
Religion should not judge you by the length of your hair
but affirm that every hair on your head is numbered.
Religion should recognize that the loudness of music
drowns out the anxious uncertainties of growing up as
surely as solitude drowns out the hectic certainties after
one has grown up Religion should know that you've got
to "twist and shout" in the process of learning to stand on
your own feet as independent persons
Religion should humanize not proselytize, foster
personhood not paternalism, serve your self-
determination not its own preservation, inspire unity and
diversity not conformity and divisiveness
Religion does not mean worshipping what the prophets
did but doing what the prophets worshipped.
Religion should enable you to dream, not tell you what

Faculty focus: John M. Whelan, Jr.
JohnM. Whelan, Jr.
I'm in better condition now than when I arrived at
Lycoming II years ago."
That reversal results from running, according to John
Whelan, 38, assistant professor of philosophy, and one of
20 million recreational runners in the United States.
Recently, Whelan put himself through a taxing test of
vitality when he completed the Greater Philadelphia
Independence Marathon, a 26-mile, 385-yard footrace,
along with 4,800 other runners.
Whelan, who reached the finish line a minute faster than
his goal of three hours and 15 minutes, had never run
longer than 18 miles before the Nov 29 event. Yet, thanks
to adequate training and a conservative early pace, the
runner of three years says he felt relatively strong during
the final miles and never doubted he would finish.
After passing the halfway point in 1,331st place,
Whelan overcame 340 runners in the last 13. 1 miles and
ended 891st, placing him in the top 20 percent. He
attributes this "closing rush" more to the attrition of
underconditioned "casualties" than to his own speed
While running can consume its adherents to obsession,
Whelan claims it doesn't obsess him, and the running life
has made few inroads into his professional or social life.
Teaching philosophy, says the Long Island native, is his
primary concern. "Running," he adds only half-
racetjously. "allows me to eat with impunity."
Whelan separates philosophy from running as much as
possible Although some contemporary running writers
have attempted to infuse their writings with profound
philosophical insights— often gamenng large readerships
and financial benefits in their tracks — running is a non-
philosophical activity for Whelan, done exclusively for its
With the relief of work-related tensions in mind, "I
purposely run after my school day," Whelan says
For mental stimulation, Whelan rums to Aristotle, St.
Thomas Aquinas, and Ludwig Wittgenstein, a 20th-
century Austrian about whom Whelan wrote his doctoral
dissertation, The seriousness, comprehensiveness, and
depth of their work are the reasons Whelan holds these
philosophers in esteem.
His dissertation, completed at the University of Texas,
grappled with "a central feature of Wittgenstein's later
philosophy," according to Whelan And the energy that
went into completing his dissertation far exceeded what he
expended to run the 26-mile race.
Whelan says marathon running requires you to get on a
training schedule, put in the miles labout 60 a week for
Whelan in the weeks preceding the Philadelphia race), and
run the race— a measured, cut-and-dry routine that can't
be compared with writing about philosophy.
"When you do a dissertation in philosophy," he
explains, "you have to deal with all kinds of ambiguities
and uncertainties. "
Whelan came to Lycoming in 1971 after earning a
bachelor's degree at the University of Notre Dame and
finishing the bulk of his graduate work at the University of
Texas. Although Lycoming was his first full-time teaching
job, Whelan taught for seven semesters as a graduate
assistant at Texas, and as an instructor at St. Edward's and
Southwest Texas State Universities.
In his 11 years on the Lycoming faculty, trends in higher
education have changed significantly. One, however— a
drop in philosophy enrollments — has been avoided by
Lycoming's philosphy department because of foresight and
innovation, Whelan says.
Lycoming's introductory philosophy courses are tied
directly to particular majors and student concerns. The
department offers courses in business ethics, medical
ethics, criminal justice, personal ethics, or ethics and
public policy. The more historical, abstract, and technical
courses are saved for advanced students. As a result, the
department has been able to maintain solid enrollments at
a time when they have been dropping at many liberal arts
Whelan s largest enrollments come in practical logic, a
course he instituted when he first came to Lycoming. Each
fall he tries to teach basic reasoning skills to 75-150
