The Women'sStudent Organi-

October 21. at the Lycoming 
Hotel. A brief hair-styling pro- 
gram was presented and the 
club's activities were dis- 
cussed for this year. 

According to Mrs. Lucille

Mr. O'Donnell. chairman of 

the Journalism Department 

stated three possible solutions 

on the situation. 

1 . An appeal by the staff to 
Miss Markley to continue. 

2. A search for a new advisor. 

3. Operation of the paper by 
the staff with minimal advice 
from the head of the Journalism 

The Spotlight Staff has de- 
cided to operate the Spotlight 
without another advisor to fill 

Miss Markley's post. Mr. Dale 
Metzker and Mr. John Hilsher. 
Jr.. of the Printing Department 
will be our only advisors. 

When the Journalism 
students first began helping 
with the Spotlight, they were 
filled with new ideas and tech- 
niques toimprove the two-page, 
8 X 10 Spotlight. They pro- 
duced a larger four to six page 
paper every two weeks, with 
pictures, features and news- 
paper appearance as well as 
news of the college. 

After much hard work on the 
part of the staff and under the 
direction of Miss Markley. a 
great honor was awarded the 
Wilhamsport Area Community 
College. In competition with 
all other Junior College News- 
papers in the country, the 
Spotlight received top prize.

Letters to the Editor 


Dear Editor.

mobile came toWACCwe

number of donations with 320 
pints contributed to the Red 

The bloodmobile is again 
due to come to WACC on Oc- 
tober 22. and again everyone 
18 and older must be urged to 
donate a pint of blood. 

The usefulness of blood 
cannot be overstated. If blood 
IS needed in an emergency, 
blood you have given may save 
a life. A supply of blood is 
needed for research and ex- 
perimentation. If you are a 
donor and anyone in your 
family needs blood, it will be 
given without charge (and be- 
cause of its scarcity, blood is 

We want to break all pre- 
vious records in blood do- 
nations, so let's alt shed some 
blood for a worthy cause. 

David Banks 7/ 

Dear David. 

We could not agree with you 
more. Blood is amazingly 
scarce, and so vitally im- 
portant. Did you give on Oc- 
tober 22?

Dear Editor. 

Concerning the policy of 
our bookstore, why can't 
students return books that are 
unmarked' For example, a 
number of students bought the 
books required for an English 
course. When the instructor re- 
quired )ust two texts and 
students tried to return the 
unmarked-unused-books, they 
were told a slip or note from 
the dean or advisor was neces- 
sary. What's all the procedure 
involved to return a book' 
Secondly, why doesn't the 
bookstore sell used books' 
Many students can't afford to 
pay the pr i ce for new texts 
every semester. Why not sell 
used books for our benefit' 
I noticed that the bookstore 
ran-out of books for numerous 
courses this semester. If they 
would order the same number 
of books and would have sold 
used books, maybethis 
problem wouldn't have arisen. 
I also noticed that the book- 
store IS limited in space to 
work with. Why can't some- 
thing be d on e? How abo u t 
starting a bookstore fund to 
add on or even build a new 

Definitely some action 
should be taken concerning the 
bookstore's policy. Hopefully 
before the freshmen graduate 
from WACC the bookstore's 
policy can be changed for the 

Thank you.

Dear Dennis, 

The bookstore is very 
limited m availault working 
area, we admit, but student 
enrollment seems to overpower 
many facilities at WACC that 
we can not cope with at this 
time. Your points are well 
taken and deserve merit. We 
hope for the best, too'

Professors and teachers at WACC do not get schedule relief, recog- 
nition, or pay for the extra hours work put in advising an activity. 
How long does WACC, in its wildest dreams, think this can continue? 
Will advisors keep taking what little's dished out to them? Or will the 
conscientious advisor who spends late hours after classes working. 
find him or herself running, running, continually running to beat the 
clock, finally sink to dispair, admit failure, and forget the activity. 

If our goal was to weed out conscientious, hard-working, brain 
beating advisors, we are on the correct line of action. The apathetic, 
"don't really care what you do or how you go about it" advisor is 
lurking within every campus. A solid name to back-up an organi- 
zation, plenty of hot air and more air. Their unorganized, flyby-night 
methods can take an eternal leap - and good riddance!!! 

How long will it take WACC to realize we are defeating our own 
purpose? When will duly earned benefits be granted to our faculty 
advisors and given freely? Why must we wait? Why??? 

Ron Stroh, president of Student 
Government. I discovered many 
students have been concerned 
with the present constitution 
that governs the students at 
WACC. Here is an account of 
what Ron had to say about the 

"It has been brought to the 
attention of the Student 
Government Association, since 
as late as last semester, that 
the present constitution which 
governs the student body and 
the SGA is very weak. A com- 
mittee was formulated last 
semester to draw up a new 
constitution which will govern 
both Liberal Arts and Applied 
Arts students. It is our sin- 
cere hope that it will protect 
our student body .n making it 
a stronger and better organi- 
zation. Along with the consti- 
tution there will be a Students' 
Bill of Rights. The chairman 
of this committee is Mr. 
Dennis Fink who has worked 
diligently in drawing up the 
guidelines of the constitution. 
He feels that this constitution, 
being as important as it is. 
should be voted upon by all 
the students of this community 
college. The voting date of the 
constitution at the present 
time has not been established. 
Further information will be 
distributed at a later date, so 
please bear with us." 

Ron feels that his adminis- 
tration will have been worth- 
while if a new and effective 
constitution can be drawn up. 
He is overwhelmed with the 
tremendous interest that the 
students have shown in the 
affairs of the Student Govern- 
ment Association. It IS through 
this interest that the govern- 
ment is made aware of the 
viewpoints of the student 
body, and is made to work for 
the benefit of everyone attend- 
ing this community college. 

As everyone should know. 
October 10-12 was the 1969 
Fall Weekend at WACC. All of 
the events which took place in 
the course of these three days 
went off smoothly and ac- 
cording to plan. The Road 
Rally especially was com- 
mented on by numerous 
students as being well organ- 
ized. Mother Nature was kind 
enough to contribute a beauti- 
ful day for this event. The 
proceeds haven't been com- 
pletely tallied yet. but at the 
last count there was found to 
be $1300 made from the ticket 
sales. In all aspects this much 
planned for weekend was de- 
clared a big success. 

The Student Government is 
delighted and proud to say that 
for the first time our Communi- 
ty College can boast a body of 
of students who are showing

students are not only showing 
concern for them, but they are 
also trying, in an orderly and 
educated manner, to do some-

A certai n amount of dis-

In Applied Arts an election 
IS held in the m a j or depart-

representative, whereas in 
Liberal Arts the election takes 
place in the var i ous gym

is substantial to the individual

A new kind of money is 
being created called paper 
gold or SDR's. Paper gold in 
reality is a book-keeping unit 
to be used by most of the free 
world's trading nations. 
"SDR" stands for "special 
drawing rights" that have been 
created by the International 
Monetary Fund, a 1 13-nation 

to issue 3.5 billion dollar's 
worth in 1970 and 3 bi I hon 
each in 1971 and 1972. Coun- 
tries will get SDR's according 
to a f ormu I a based on the 
amount they have contributed 
to the IMF. This will measure 
their share of world trade. 

Industrial countries will, as 
a group, receive 76.5% and 
underdeveloped countries 
23.5%. Paper gold will help 
keep countries out of currency 
crises at times when they are 
failing to pay their way m the 
world. Not only has world 
trade increased 339% since 
1950, but mining of real gold 
hardly keeps up with the 
industrial demand.

pressure off the American 

2. There is a lot of confidence 
in the American dollar. More

The WACC float, which 
competed in the 24th Annual 
Mummers Parade in South 
Williamsport on Tuesday. 
October 21. won a first place 
prize of $40. 

The theme of the float was 
■'Pathway to Higher Edu- 
cation", and featured an ani- 
mated man facing a stairway 
leading to a "better world" 
represented by a huge cornu- 
copia. The main colors were 
white, orange and blue. 

Approximately 45,000 
kleenex flowers covered the 
chicken wire frame, which was 
constructed by the construction 
class of Mr. Lyie Keeler, 

WACC students participated 
m the making of the flowers. 
The trailer was from the Ly-

The float was fully assembled

George Bernard Shaw once 
said: "Youth is a wonderful 
thing; what a crime to waste 
It on children." Sometimes 
I've been tempted to agree 
with the old sage. But lately 
I've been thinking. You see, I 
sit in a small class of just 
five pupils here at WACC. and 
I'm learning things other than 
my subject lessons. 

On my way to class (and I 
wish I could say through ivied 
halls instead of along street 
car barn tracks) I pass young- 
sters coming and going. And so 
I straighten up a little and 
partake of the youthful zest, 
ambition, energy and purpose 
that swirls around me. And I 
think to myself. "George, 
you're wrong." 

On moratorium day, I got a 
taste of what is in the youth- 
ful mind of a WACC student. 
I'm supposing that our class 
represents, small as it is. a 
fair cross-section of the 
student body. 

So Mr. Shaw. 1 see loyalty, 
courage and thought, a bit 
erratic but beautiful in the 
rough and ready for polishing. 
I suspect that frustration, dis- 
appointment and adversity are 
not strangers to some who 
enter these classrooms; they 
seem so serious and engrossed 
in being college men and 
women although the premises 
wherein they learn are neither 
grandiose nor physically in- 

So I'm sorry to differ with 
you. Mr. Shaw. Youth, as I see 
It is not wasted on WACC 
young people. In my case, if 
nowhere else, youth refreshes 
the old. My first day in class I 
felt like a prehistoric monster 
in a modern zoo. Now I'm al- 
most at home where youth 
proudly does its thing. Youth 
IS like the Mets. hard to figure 
and tough to beat. 

Kids today are not too much 
different today than they were 
yesterday, they just express 
themselves differently. 
There's nothing so wrong 
about them that a few of the 
bumps they are bound to get 
won't straighten out. 'Viva la 
Youth! Move over Mr. Shaw and 
lay on MacDuff; they can take

I was doing my laundry one 
day when a little boy caught 
my eyes. I waved at him and 
gave him a merry warm smile. 

This tiny mass of confusion, 
not more than 2 feet high, just 
looked up at me with no ex- 
pression at all. 

I commented that this little 
snob was just a "dumb kid". 

He walked over to me a 

little while after this and 
grabbed my finger. 

Helpi I'm being kidnapped. 

Walking around the laundry, 
I got a grand tour.

to be so dumb after all - the

said intramural bowling is 
underway and basketball and 
wrestling are just about to 
begin here at the college. 

The Practical Nurses have 
a bowling league Tuesday 
night at 4:15. at the YMCA. 
Anyone interested in loining 
the league should go to the 
YMCA Tuesday's. 

Tuesday and Thursday 
nights the W.H.S. gym will be 
open for intramural w i n t er 
sports. These include basket- 
ball, in which a league will 
soon be forming, wrestling and 

The week of Nov. 3 a 
wrestling tournament will be 
held. Anyone interested should 
contact Mr. Wesson. Mr. Vargo 
or Mr. Burdett. 

Wednesday nights

for the Wildcats and stressed 
that the team has an improved

Burdett and his assistant 
Robert Courtney. 

Coach Burdett told the 
candidates they should work 
on their own before reporting 
to practice. Going over the 
schedule, he pointed oulttia't 
the team only plays on six 
weekends, and that the road 

throughout the schedule, thus 
cutting down on traveling. 

LaVerne Whaley. last years 
leading scorer, heads the list 
of players returning. Others 
are Doug Phillips. Bob Todd, 
and Bill Cook. 

The team will open up its 
18 game schedule at home, 
Wednesday, Nov, 19, at 8:00 
p.m, against Lackawanna 
Junior College. 

If anyone is interested in 
coming out for the team, they 
are still welcome. Contact Mr. 
Burdett at his office in the 
Strailey Building. 

RICHIE ALLEN is over- 
joyed with the prospects of a 
new home in St Louis. This 
year the boo's from the fans in 
Philadelphia. "City of

Richie crazy. For Allen, who 
IS no angel. St. Louis offers a 
new life. And perhaps we'll 
see a great hitting talent at 
Its full potential. 

JOE NAMATH, who talks as 
good as he throws a football, 
has a T.V. show which is en- 
titled, naturally, the "Joe

seems to be right at home with

show is on Saturday night at

Basketball fans will be 
interested to know that BILL 
RUSSELL, ex-player-coach of 
the Boston Celtics, is current-

campuses. Russell says he is 
trying to find out what college 
people are thinking and doing. 

TINY TIM has to be one of

of his lecture was startling: 
they skipped practice.

Courtesy and good conduct are not actions ol the past - nor are 
they reminiscent of knighthood and chivalry. They are elements of 
the here and now. Howemr, it seems that some students have yet to 
actcnow/edge them. 

Keeping the Student-Faculty Lounge clean would be a good start 
in the right direction. Throw your trash away and respect your 
property. It is yours, you know. Use it, enjoy it, but don't kill it. 

Displaying courtesy during college programs is a second healthy 
step. During lectures by guest artists, listen to them carefully. You 
just may learn something. Don't crinkle papers, throw wrappers or 
pound out during a program. It's not necessary to slam seats or doors, 
and it 's quite possible to lift feet - regardless of size.

News From Another Campus 

The following is taken from the National Observer of Monday, 
November 3. 1969, The SPOTLIGHT staff considers it worth your 
while to read it carefully: 

At Amherst College in West- 
ern Massachusetts a student 
died by falling 70 feet off the 
roof of a dormitory; he had 
earlier taken a trip on LSD. 
George Mounlcastle was a 
Harvard University sophomore 
from Baltimore who was visiting 
an Amherst friend Oct. II. 
State police have arrested 
another Amherst student on 
charges of selling the LSD to 
the visitor. But to Amherst's 
dean of students, Robert A, 
Ward, there was a particular 
agony about the tragedy that 
was personal. In a letter to his 
students written Oct, 16, Dean 
Ward tried to express it. His 
letter follows: 

Gentlemen of the College: 

He was not an Amherst man; 
he was a visitor. But his death 
occurred in our community, and 
we shared in the loss. We were_ 
shocked by the tragedy and* 
stunned by the senselessness 
of it. He was young and bright

life in the foolish madness

life ebbed or part of Sunday 
afternoon in my office while 
his parents struggled to com- 
prehend the reality of that day. 

I did not become a dean to 
watch a generation of students 
pollute their sanity or distort 
their lives, and I confess to a 
numbering and depressing sense 
of helplessness. Words are in- 
adequate and deeds seem 
fruitless. More than ever stu- 
dents have taken on themselves 
the individual responsibility 
which shapes their lives in all 
areas. It should be so. but the 
judicious exercise of such 
responsibility demands wisdom. 
I see no wisdom at all in the 
growing and indiscriminate use 
of drugs. I also see a danger 
that one ma|or tragedy may 
obscure other tragedies, 
smaller perhaps but no less 
frightening. On a beautiful

Adolescence ... is not the

lore, but a substantial segment 
of life which may last 15 or 
20 years, and if the meaning

Biologically, adolescence 
lasts only a few years; how-

This "prolonged adoles- 
cence" starts when parents, 
uncertain about their future 
economic standing, pressure 
their children into deciding, at 
an early age, their intended 
occupations — most of which 
require many years of study. 

. . . The majority of young 
people are still apparently 
able to tolerate the tensions 
of prolonged adolescence, to 
adjust to the adolescent role 
(primarily, student), to take 
some satisfaction from the 

most of the activities— your

Like an Overdue 

Coffee Break 

by Sol 

"Woody" Wolf 

The Thanksgiving vacation 
has come and gone. It was 
great while it lasted. Strange 
to say, however, I'm glad to 
be back at WACC, trying to get 
the cobwebs out of my brain 


I am in accounting classand 
am doing poorly, although I 
am not flunking. I would like 
to change into another course 
because if I stay in account- 
ing, I know I will flunk. (1 
can't keep my mind on it.) My 
problem is, if I change courses 
now, they will mark me WF 
(withdrawal with failure), if I 
stay m, I will probably flunk. 
Do you think I should change 
now and get into a course I 
am interested in, or should I 
wait and take the chance that 
I pass this semester' 

Just Anything 

Dear Just Anything. 

!t would be best to wait and 
change your course next 
semester. Choose something 
you can keep your mind on. 


Dear Jenny. 

I am beaut if u_l, talented, 
intelligent," and Kave a great 
personality. Why doesn't any- 
body love me? 


Dear Kathy. 

Has it ever struck you that 
you might be conceited? Until 
yo'j love someone besides 
yourself, you shouldn't expect 
to be loved. 


Dear Jenny. 

How did you expect those 
girls to get in touch with me? 
in the last issue of the Spot- 
light you forgot to mention my 
phone number. 


Dear Chuck. 

Sorry. Here it is-323-5534.

and I say "our" with pride 

)l I 

and getting 

to the 

,__. business of learning in 
the short period remaining 
before the next scheduled 
"time out" at Christmas. 
Those few days were like an 
over-due coffee break and I 
savored the sweet aroma of 
family companionship and the 
intimate small talk attending 
our reunion gathering. Before 
my retirement several years 
ago. I had enjoyed many brief 
ten-minute snatches of relax- 
ation when, otherwise, full 
speed ahead was the general 
order of the working day. The 
past few 24 hour intervals 
passed all too quickly, just 
like those old coffee breaks. 

But It was good to get back 
to the job and problems loom- 

groups of workmen and work- 
women, each little compact 
cluster pursuing its own pro- 
ject as the individual in these 
separate huddles keeps con- 
stant aim on his own parti- 
cular target and personal field 
of future achievement. 

Such then, is the way this 
institution of ours proves its 
pragmatic worth as it enfolds 
into its scattered classrooms 
its knowledge-hungry sons and 
daughters, providing for them 
the practical laboratory where 
they can advance their poten- 
tials and capabilities in an 
academic atmosphere featuring 
a minimum of highfalutin 
theory and a maximumof down- 
to-earth practicability. 

So. the Thanksgiving coffee 
break is over and business as 
usual is again the theme. 
Good to be back, eh, pardner?

Letters To Editor 

As people pass through the Spotlight office daily, personal gripes 
and gratitudes are exchanged With the beginning of a new decade, a 
new year, and a new semester, ideas of improvement were discussed. 
Here are some of them; 

Fads and personal preferences on WACC's campus have caused dis- 
crimination against long-locked boys and mini-maxi girls. (Do students 
really have expressive freedom? It's not faculty or administration to 
blame, but your fellow students.) 

Mr, O'Donnell appreciates the new electric typewriter recently 
acquired in his office. 

Dispose of empty cups and trash after eating in the lounge. Person 
el working in the building try to help you-why not do your share to 
keep the lounge a neat place to eat? 
Act like responsible college-age students, not high-schoolers. Gross 
language and bad manners are a poor excuse for anyone over 18. (Any- 
one harassed or embarrassed by "students" in the lounge please report 
to Student Government or Mr. Bowes. They'd like to hear about it.) 

Guys complain girls cut them down when they ask for a dance at 
WACC dances. Girls say the guys stand and watch the dancing, but 
never approach them. (These people should get together. Why not at 
the next dance?)

Merry finals and happy semester! 

Do you think that a group 
of people should control a 
whole building' 

Well, a certain group of 
people control one part of a 
whole building. The additional 
people in this building who 
have classes here have to go 
by what rules are passed by 
the party involved. 

Well. I feel , and so do 
many others, thai no one 
should have this power, except 
Dr. Carl. This is not the 
Democratic way. 

Now. let me set things 
straight. The students in this 
group are not to blame, it's 
the coordinator of the group 
and this person takes it out 
on the other guy and not on 
the people involved in the 

So, I )ust thought I'd say a 
few words on the matter. This

When Are WACC Students

Very good question! 
Another good question is. 
"How can one mature in a

It's true. WACC is not a col-

How many college pro- 
fessors care if the students 
attend class? They get paid

Many WACC students live 
in private homes near the col-

gave the college the right to 
decide if students are per- 
mitted fire arms, women, or 
drinks? 1 would think 'the 
landlord should be the one to 
decide. It's a little rediculous 
when the college decides what 
we do on our own time! 

I guess I'm the only student 
who feels this way, because 
if more students felt this way, 
I'm sure there would be some 
changes-through the proper 

I say through the proper 
channels, and I'm voicing my

Outstanding Musical Program 

Liberal Arts students taunt 
Applied Arts students . . . 
Applied Arts students taunt 
Liberal Arts students . . . 
boys make insulting remarks 
to girls . . . boys get ridiculed 
for long hair . . . Sounds like 
grade school, right? 

Well, believe it or not. it's 
a happening right hereon cam- 
pus at the Student-Faculty 

Our generation has a 
hang-up on individuality and 
ideals and we expect our 
elders to appreciate and 
recognize what we promote. 
Calling a spade a spade, this 
is no way to gam respect from 
anybody - over thirty or under. 

Just how much more child- 

ish can we get with these 
kinds of actions? Maybe it's 
only a small number of stu- 
dents who persist in acting so 
foolishly, but remember, their 
actions reflect upon the stu- 
dent body as a whole. 

To discourage this type of 
performance, any student 
found acting in this unsuitable 
manner will be sent before 
the Discipline Committee. So. 
come on, gang, let's get with 
It and create a more pleasant, 
atmosphere in the Lounge. 

This business of dividing 
the college into two camps 
has got to go. The SGA is 
doing their part to promote 
unity in that whatever is re- 
quested IS honored. At no time 
IS a request to SGA considered 
on the basis of Liberal vs. 
Applied Arts. 

By the same reasoning, the 
administration considers a 
request from SGA as repre- 
sentative of the college body 
as a whole - not a part - and 
the SGA IS willing to stand 
up and be counted with or 
against the administration 
when requests are under con- 
sideration. But how can this 
be done effectively if the stu- 
dent body IS not a unit? 

So, let's pull together. The 
SGA will do their part and are 
open for suggestions at any 
time. But suggestions from 
college students - not grade 
school youngsters playing 
gang warfare. 

Wildcat Spirit? 

by Denny Gentzel 

Did you attend the last basketball game or wrestling match? If you 
did, you were one of the few that did. Even less students have helped 
our cheerleaders root the Wildcats on. When an athelete is in a game, 
it's nice to hear something other than his converses hitting the gym 
floor. Just hearing the screams of girlfriends, fellow students, and 
other interested persons can help build an atheletic club. 

A good starting point would be to make it mandatory for instruc- 
tors and professors to read the Daily Crier at the beginning of each class 
period. It seems that teachers always point out upcoming cultural 
events, but never comment when there is an atheletic event or other 
student-centered activity. 

Next semester why not be one of MANY who attend the sporting 
events at WACO? Come out and help the cheerleaders boost the Wild- 
cats to victory. 

The grapplers are in the middle of an outstanding season and the 
cagers, while not off to a good start, have made all their home games 
exciting. The cheerleaders, also off to a rocky start, are imporving with 
each event, just as a seasoned ball club. Plus, they have more pep and 
spirit than any group before them! 

Come and see a good team play a good game. Support your WACC

So Long 

by Sol Woody Wolf 

How do you bid farewell? 
How do you close out a rela- 
tionship you've enjoyed and 
profited from? The French 
say, "Au revoir"; The German 
exclaims. "Auf wiedersehen"; 
here is our eastern section of 
the United States, we gener- 
ally utterthe conventional 
"Good-bye." My preference 
IS for "So long." Like the 
French and German closings. 
It suggests a later return. 

The fall semester is over, 
but I hope It's not terminal. 
There's so much a member of 
the older generation can pick 
up here at the college. Even 
fixed, almost life-long opin- 
ions can be leavened by a bit 
of mixing with the young on

Are you seeking a way to 
explode and let off steamwith- 
out hurling yourself or anyone 
else' Then spend a few after- 
noon or evening hours during 
the long winter months en)oy- 
ing the sport of interschool 
wrestling. It's wholesome; it's 
exciting; it's fun, and. best of 
all. It's bonafide stuff. You 
can believe what you see. It's 
as different as day and night 
from the hippodrome brand of 
make-believe featured on TV. 
It's amateur and that, my 
friend, means there is 100 per- 
cent of effort going on in front 
of you. 

Wrestling is our oldest 
sport. Men wrestled in prehis- 
toric days whenwmning meant 
life and losing brought death. 
The Greeks had it as part of 
their original Olympic games 
and the Romans made a spec- 
tacle of the event in the 
ancient colosseum. Our West

fathers settled many a score 
and had fun besides in their

recommend the treatment to 
all. especially those with the 
winter blah-blahs. 

For what ails you. for com-

your vocal chords, for a

The high school and col- 
lege version of wrestling 
boasts of no fake holds, no 
freak attention attracting 
robes or make-ups, and no 
fancy doodads. Modern team 
wrestling is )ust boys, each 
giving his best as a separate 
unit of the group representing 
the school, in the last of the 
individual personal contact 
sports still on the amateur 
athletic calendar.

Wildcats Bow To 
Lycoming Frosh 

The Lycoming Frosh 
extended the Wildcats' losing 
streak to five games as they 
nipped the cats I 10-107 in 
double overtime, on Dec. 18, 
at the West Third Street Gym. 

The Wi Idcats led by as 
much as 12 points in the first 
half, but the Lyco's battled 
back and tied the score 50-50 
at halftime. 

In the second half neither 
team had a big lead and as the 
regular time ran out. both 
teams were tied once again 
at 88 all. 

It was no different at the 
end of the first overtime 
period as the two teams were 
tied 96-96. 

In the second overtime 
period the height of the War-- 
rior Jayvees finally wore 
down the Wildcats, as they 
pulled out the game I 10-107. 

LaVerne Whaley led all 
scorers with 33 points. Two 
other Wildcats were in double 
figures as Tom Stutzman had 
28 points and Bob Todd 
pumped in 25 points. 

Six of the Warriors were in 
double figures. 

Lock Haven Nips

Despite the efforts of three 
Wildcat players who scored in 
double figures, the team still

Frosh, 99-90, Dec. 16, at Lock 

LaVerne Whaley was high 
man in the game as he had a 
fine night scoring 42 points. 

Other Wildcats in double 
figures were Bob Todd and 
Doug Phillips who scored 17 
and 12 points respectively. 

The Wildcats big downfall 
was missed free throws in 
bonus situations late in the 
game. The defeat was the 
fourth straight for the Wild- 
cats. They all have come on 
the road.

Alfred State College ended 
the Wildcats' four game

LaVerne Whaley led all

It was Ryan that put the 
Wildcats in front for good. 
85-84, with I I seconds left 
with a driving lay-up. Then 
he stole an inbounds pass 
from Keystone and threw down 
court to Whaley who sunk the 
last of his 19 field goals. 

The win broke a six-game 
losing streak that has extended 
since the Wildcats opening

Junior College on Nov. 19. 

Wildcats Caged

Todd was high man in the 
game as he scored 27 points. 

The only other Wildcat in 
double figures was LaVerne 
Whaley. with 24 points. 

The Wildcats lost a tough 
106-61 decision to Alfred State 
College. Dec. 20. at the West 
Third Street Gym. 

The cagers of Coach Bill 
Burdett had four players in 
double figures, as Mike Ryan 
lead the way for the Wildcats 
with I 5 points. LaVerne Whaley 
chipped in 14. Bob Todd 13 
and Tom Stutzman 10 points. 

. ..Mets and Jets... 

The chance of New York 
having a third straight Pro- 
fessional World Championship 
team ended with the Jets' 
defeat to Kansas City in the 
A.F.L. playoff game. But. m 
1969. the New York Mets and 
Jets made sports' history. 
Both teams were underdogs 
and both teams became World 
Champions. How each team 
changed their respective sport 
IS also noteworthy. 

In 1969, baseball as a pro- 
sport was rapidly fading to 
pro-football. The Mets gave 
baseball a new spirit. The 
whole country (except in 

cheering for a Met victory in 
the World Series. 

The Jets in turn shocked 
the pro-football world. Due to 

the Jet5 Super Bowl victory 

in 1969, the A.F.L. was com- 
pared as equals to the N.F.L. 
for the first time. The Super 
Bowl which was considered 
to be an easy win for N.F.L. 
IS now one of the top sports, 
events of the year. 

If the Mets and Jets had 
lost their World Championship 
contests. 1969 would have 
been a year when dreams 
almost came true. So perhaps 
a word to Baltimore is due. 

The long road to the Super 
Bowl has finallyended in New 
Orleans. Although the game 
will be in the record books 
when this article goes to press 
a prediction seems in order. 
Kansas City wins by 3 with a 
JanStenerud field goal making 
the difference.

All people aren't as lucky as you and I, They need blood, and 
that can't be bought with money. The Red Cross Bloodmobile Unit 
will return to the WACC campus March 4 at the Central Baptist 
Church, corner of Memorial and Seventh Avenues. You can help 
these less fortunate people by donating your blood ■ and it will cost 
you nothing. 

Blood is necessary to keep people alive and to help others begin 
to live. Transfusions are a serious business concerning people you've 
never met, who put their lives in your hands. People really need 
people. Don't be selfish. Give life to an anemic child or to an acci 
dent victim. Give your blood 

This year, all blood given at WACC will be donated in the memory 
of Mr. William Stitzel, former instructor in Service and Operation of 
Heavy Equipment. Mr. Stitzel was a genuine, responsible, "beautiful" 
person who really cared which direction our school and our world 
were heading in. Mr. Stitzel got most of his "boys" to pledge last 
year and was the driving force behind the success of the blood 
mobile visit the most successful in WACC's history. 

As a dedication to a man who did so much for you and for the 
spirit of WACC ■ how 'bout giving your pledge for blood and donate

What Benefit Can Giving Blood 
Have For Me? 


Danny L Beyer (LA): Besides giving one the 
satisfaction of contributing for the benefit of 
the community, his relatives can also receive 
blood if the need arises. 

Denny Flood (LA): A bloodmobile is a com 
munity project and the college is part of the 
community, therefore the students should sup 
port it 100%. 

Ken Andrus (WP) ; I wont bleed as much when 
I get cut. 

Ann Harer (BS): If I ever needed blood or any- 
one in my family, then the blood would be 
available, free of charge, in a time of emergency

There are so many vari-

have a deeper problem where

City Hall Captivates

C'mon, students, climb out 
of your rut. I think it's about 
time someone woke you up 
and tried to pull you out of 
the rut of boredom. 

Many are confronted by the 
dead and dreary weekends 
that WiMiamsport offers. The 
majority of you complain of 
nothing to do on weekends. 
You're tired of riding the cir- 
cuit all night, bored with those 
nightly trips to Mac's for a 
burger and watchmgthe people 
watch you while you watch 
someone else, and aren't you 
tired of talking to the same 
old people, chicks included'

to all of your weekend blues.

place where people realize 
what we want and are aware of 
the things that we enjoy. They

New two-letter abbreviations 
for all 50 states, providences

Post Office Department. 

All are in capital letters 
and no period is used. For 
Pennsylvania, you write it PA

California CA. 

Postal officials also have 
approved the use of other

mail. Heights is abbreviated 
HTS. Place is PL and Plaza 
is PLZ-all without periods. 

The two-letter abbreviations

Theater Unit Now In Rehearsal 
For John Dos Passos' "U.S.A." 

The dramatic review, 
"U.S.A.", by Paul Shyre and 
John Dos Passos, is in full 
rehearsal at the present time, 
according to Mr. Stephen Press, 
Director of the College Theater 

Consisting of two acts and 
based on the novel by John 
Dos Passos, the play depicts 
American life and culture from 
the turn of tfie century to the 

"It lo really an ensemble- 
type theater production," 
stated Mr. Press, "and all 
characters and players are 
equal in importance. Each 
character enacts several 
personalities and each is 
necess.iry to produce play 
unity and unpad." 

William Nixon, Liberal Arts 
student, will be John Ward 
Moorehouse, one of the main 
characters typical of many 
Americans of the era. From 
youth to maturity, his speech 
and actions reveal the dreams 
and ambitions people of his 
time possessed. 

"Students in the Theater 
Unit are working hard to get 
the polish necessary for a good 
production," continued Mr. 
Press, "and within a week or 
two we'll be ready for public 

The time and place for 
"U.S.A." will be announced 
on posters placed throughout 
the campus and in the Daily 
Crier. Student Government 
Association publication. 

Sharon Weaver finds herself the center of attraction with Ray Broin 
Wayne Hewett, Doug Swam. Terry Severino and Charles Brov. 

Julie Robb. Christy Reed and Bill Nixon are watched closely by 
Wayne Hewett, Ray Brown, Sharon Weaver, Terry Severino, Charles 
Miller and Doug Swartz.

and win a 5-4 decision which 
clinched a 19-17 victory for 
the Wildcats over the Bucknell

son's boys a 4-2-1 record. 

Each team won five bouts. 
The first winner for the Wild- 
cats was Bob Elliott who won 
a forfeit at I 1 8 lbs. Dennis 
Miller picked up the only pin

190 lbs. bout. 

Campus Capers 

by Abby Walk 

While investigating why 
teachers get gray hair, I found 
that WACC comes up with the 
student with a very wide 
attention span. The perfect 
example was in Mr. Doyle's 
history class. He was taking 
roll like the typical teacher 
and asked that students 
answer with their curriculum. 
Everything went fine until he 
ran into a very non-typical 
student like Mary Rutherford 
who answered, "Here!" 

Communications between 
students seem to lack con- 
nection in speech and hearing. 
On his way to matrix class, 
some of the girls would swear 
that Dave Powell told them he 
was going to 'matress' class. 

Don't ever let Todd Musick 
bring a lunch for you. Accord- 
ing to a girl in the parking 
office, he'll eat it before you 
get the chance. 

Did you know that accord- 
ing to Mr. Kissell, Unit 20 is 
a "mini-Smithsonian"? 

Someone scheduling classes 
failed to notice that both a 
history and an ed. psychology 
class were to be held m the 
same room at the same time. 
When approximately 200 
students showed up for the 
classes. Dr. Feng seemed to 
sum up more than the situation 
by remarking, "This isn't very 

Whaley Marks 44 
Points To Smash 
Lehigh County 

Sparked by LaVerne Wha- 
ley's season high of 44 points 
the Wildcats demolished 
Lehigh County Community 
College I 11-88, Feb. 7. at the 
W.H.S. gym. 

The Wildcats were in con- 
trol most of the game and at 
half time led by a 56-47 mar- 
gin. In the second half the 
the Wildcats increased their 
lead to 26 points, but Lehigh 
pulled within four points with 
six minutes left to play. From 
that point on to the final buz- 
zer it was all the Wildcats. 

Other Wildcats who ended 
up in double figures were Bob 
Todd who pumped in 28 points, 
Tom Stutzman who chipped in 
with 12 markers and Mike 
Pyan and Doug Phillips who 
each had I points. 

The WACC basketball 
season closes this month with 
our last home game the 24th. 
The Wildcats have played ex- 
citing and winning basketball 
at home and the 24th should 
be no exception. On Feburary 
7, their last home game, the 
Wildcats scored 1 I I points 
.isily rolling over Lehigh 

iinty Community College. 
. :i the 24th, WACC meets 
Mansfield State College at 
8 p.m. in the Williamsport High 
School gym. 

The Wildcats are a fine 
team. LaVerne Whaley averages 
36 points a game and Bob Todd 
IS an aggressive, hustlingball- 
player. Doug Phillips is a fine 
rebounder and Bob Robias is a 
smart all-around ballplayer. 
Tom Stutzman and Mike Ryan 
also play good ball. 

It has been a rough season 
on the road for Coach Burdett 
and the team, but at home 
they have always been im- 
pressive. Feburary 24th is an 
important date that marks a 
basketball game that should't 
be missed. 

Mansfield Cages 
'Cats' by Twenty three 

The Mansfield State Frosh 
had SIX players in double fig- 
ures as they defeated the 
Wildcats 98-75, Feb. I I , at 
Mansfield. The loss snapped 
a two-game winning streak for 
the cagers of Coach Bill 

The taller Mansfield team 
dominated the game and led by 
16 at half time, 51-35. High 
man for the Frosh was Lynch 
with 24 points. He was fol- 
lowed close behind by Jablish 
who had 23 points. 

LaVerne Whaley was high 
man in the game with 32 mark- 
ers. He was followed by Bob 
Todd whodumped in 25 points.

Frisbee Club Now Being Formed On Campus 
Group Invites Additional Student Membership 

Newly elected officers of the Fnsbee Club are George Stephens. 
Treasurer, and Pauline Stopper. Secretary; Standing are Nancy 
Beightol. President, and Bruce Harris, Vice-President. 


A total of 466 pints of blood 
were collecied at the Blood- 
tnobile last week - 106 pints 
over the goal set. 

The record of 320 from last 
year was smashed by 146- 
establishing a new record 
worth special recognition. 

Student promotions for 
involvement in the Frisbee 
Club are at present being felt 
throughout the campus as 
interested dub members begin 
an all-out campaign for mem- 
bership. "It*s both a sports' 
activity and a social club," 
stated Nancy Beighton. Presi- 

Meeting bi-weekly in the 
small room of the Lair, the 
group now has approximately 
thirty members and additional 
personnel are joining at each 

session held. 

Advised by Mr. Daniel 
Doyle and Mr. Ned Coates, 
the club promotes skilled 
throwing of a disk, eight to 
nine inches round, rather light 
in weight, and made of a syn- 
thetic material. 

Proficiency in throwing is 
required to get good angles 
and drops, according to the 
club officers, who urge all 
interested students to )Oin 
them for fun and recreation.

WACC seems unorganized and disoriented, and generally mixed 
up to new and returning students. Reasons for this can be traced to 
students- activity. A small percent of WACC's enrollees tackle club 
leadership activities, and better all conditions for students, while 
others chuck such nonsense. The folks who do the least, gripe the 
loudest, and they have no room to complain. 

There are no set qualifications for leadership in a club, 
responsibility in student government, or promotion of the college 
in general. Good intentions and effort only leave the door open 
for anyone interested. Run for office and get involved in WACC s 
triumphs and failures. It's the student body that makes any school

times. Do men really want 
everything they ask for, or 
are they merely testing you? 

According to a poll taken 
by Ann Landers, the maiority 
of college men like to have a

Here are a few examples 
which appeared in the Ann 
Landers' column when she 
asked the question. 

A man from the 1942 gradu- 
ating class at Yale started. 
"I got my share, probably 
more. But the girl I married 
was the one who said, 'Noth-

We had some knock-down, drag 
out arguments, but 1 was 
secretly happy that she won 
them all."

the nicknames used in the

Fantastically heavy, power- 
fully explosive and full of 
emotions. These are only a 
few terms capable of describ- 
ing the newest group of musi- 
cal talent to hit the Williams- 
port area in months. 

At a recent SGA sponsored 
dance, Don Gill led his band 
in a dynamic array of music to 
a packed recreation center, 
one of the largest crowds yet. 
They exploded into this routine 
with Don releasing his emo- 
tions on every number played. 
Songs like Tin Soldier by 
Small Faces. Evil Ways by 
Santanna, Every Little Thing 
by YESl. and their favorite. 
Blueberry by The James Gang 
(first done by Buffalo Spring- 
field). These are lust a few 
of the songs they played. They 
put real feeling and emotion 
behind everyone of them. I 
named the above songs 
because, in my opinion they 
were the ones with the most 
feeling and work behind them. 
They wailed their hearts out 
in a way that grasped the 
attention of everyone. Don 
was great, his voice was 
great and his gymnastic-like 
gestures were all part of the 
best dance put together so far 
this year. 

They were fantastic for 
such a new group. They play 
as if they practiced for months, 
while in truth they'e been 
together for a relatively short 
time. Just think, they will 
improve with age!

all out and brought their own

audience dancing under tlie

The Aztec Bronze consists 
of five members. Don as lead 
singer, Doug Kidding on the 
organ, Jim Hughes on skins. 
Rick Judas playing lead guitar 
and Ken Reiker playing bass. 
All of them are capable of

That prejudice can have a 
fundamental effect on both the 
oppressors and their victims 
is hardly a secret. History is 
replete with bloody examples 
of prejudice-bred violence. 

Prejudice does sometimes 
seem so widespread and tena- 
cious that many might con- 
clude that It IS a natural human 
state. But many scholars are 
not willing to accept that pre- 
mise, I believe. They point out 
that there are strong forces at

Aztec Bronze is able to 
grasp your liking, they are 
aware of what people want. 
They communicate by putting 
guts behind their singing and 
playing. As hard as their 
music is, they can joke around 
with one another and supply 
everyone with pleasure with 
their bombardments of humor 
all through the act. 

They played hard and heavy

contend that there are no such 
forces but that prejudice has 
just been tossed into the back- 
files and the problem never 
solved. Soon the problem will 
once again force its way into 
society and this time the pro- 
blem will undoubtedly persist 
in an even greater magnitude. 
In a mid-century world of 
"shrinking distances," tol- 
erance and understanding may 
no longer just be amiable but 
may become more and more 
vital to the survival of civi- 
lized man. Evidence has sug- 
gested that when men have a 
goal in common, prejudices 
of athletics, for example, 
where teammates share a com- 

vidual player's race or creed 
usually becomes irrelevant. 

The problems of prejudice 
and discrimination are cer- 
tainly not limited to the United 
States or to any one nation. 
But few nations have a greater 
stake in solving these prob- 
lems than this one. For no- 
where else has the mixing of 
so many people with so many 
different backgrounds been 
conducted on so vast a scale 
as in the U.S., "a nation of 
immigrants" in the words of 
John F. Kennedy.

up our prejudices." —Henry

As always, the ultimate 
success of this "Great Ameri- 
can Experiment" rests on the 
individual in this society and 
how each one thinks and acts 
toward others. For some, it 
may mean some self-e-^am in- 
at I on and rethinking-maybe 
some honest soul-searching - 
-never an easy thing at best. 
But those who accept the ver- 
dict of the 18th century French 
author Voltaire that "prejudice

port High School auditorium. 
Godwin, born and raised in 
North Carolina, has a back- 
ground both in family (of 
Scottish, English, French and 
Cherokee Indian origins) and

Musically fluent in nine 
languages, he is a graduate of 
the Juilhard School of Music, 
where he spent four years as 
a scholarship student. Despite 
his extensive classical back- 
ground, his early experiences 
with folk music and folklore 
have led him to the field of 
folk music, not only as a 
singer and guitarist with a 
wide international repertoire, 
but also as a composer of 
songs in the fo|k idiom. He 
includes many show tunes in 
his repertoire, as well. 

He has worked in a variety 
of |Obs that have contributed 
to a well rounded background. 
These jobs include harvesting 
cotton and tobacco in North 
Carolina and Virginia, work- 
ing on a railroad labor crew, 
cherry picking in Washington 
state, working in a paper box 
factory, a laundry, as a book 
salesman, bellhop and waiter. 
While serving in the United 
States Army in Japan, he 
directed several choirs, toured

Government Drops Representatives 
System Effective Next Semester 

A two-thirds maionty vote. 
given at the March 3 (omt SGA 

position of Representative 
from next year's SGA. 

Dennis Fmk. SGA Parlia- 
mentarian, asked for the ma- 
jority vote to drop the Repre- 
sentative figure from the new 
WACC constitution he is writ- 
ing. Instead of the Repre- 
sentatives, double or triple 
the number of Senators that 
are now functioning will be 

According to SGA officials, 
the basic job of the Repre- 
sentatives, that of direct com- 
munication with the student 
body, has been taken over by 
announcements in the Daily 
Cner and stories in the Spot- 

One reason for dropping the 
position of Representative 
from SGA is because of the 
voting system. "As the present 
constitution now stands, "ac- 
cording to Dennis, "Repre- 
sentatives can not vote." 

"This means that if we 
have two bodies of delegates, 
say. ■40 Senators and 80 Repre- 

sentatives, the total IS 120 
persons. If there is a joint 
SGA meeting. 15 Senators and 
45 Representatives might be 
able to attend. Thus there is 
a total of 15 persons voting 
for the entire student body. 
"When the new constitution 
goes into effect. 80 Senators 
may be elected, giving the 
vote to more ofa cross-section 
of the student body." 

Another effect of the uni- 
cameral system is that any 
new developments from an SGA 
meeting can be reported to the 
student body by Senators the 
very next day, without having 
to be passed down from the 
Senators to the Representa- 
tives to the student body, 
which may take several days. 
It was reported at the meet- 
ing that WACC IS the only 
Community College in the state 
to have the Representative 

Representatives that are 
now serving will finish out 
this semester. When new Sen- 
ators are elected, new Repre- 
sentatives will not be ap-

classes. There are 23% of the 
students that attend both day- 
time and evening classes. 

Half of the student body 
knows their Student Govern- 
ment Senators and 56% know 
the Student Government's 
president. An amazing 71% 
know their Representatives 
and 94% of the students do 
know their adviser. Ninety-one 
percent know their professors. 
Three-fourths feel their 
instructors do a good job of 
teaching and that 2 '3 of the 
instructors are interested in 
you as an individual. Half of 
the students can discuss per- 
sonal problems with their

amount feel that a used book 
store would be worthwhile. 

Comments: Most of the com- 
ments were complaints about 
the parking facilities. I am 
afraid that the parking lots 
will not be paved because of 
the expense for the short per- 
iod of time these lots will be 
in service, do to the new cam-

Disc World 

by Dave Gulden 

Led Zepplins "Whole Lotta 
Love" IS. in my opinion, a 
really freaky and far-out re- 
cord. Basically it's a simple 
song, consisting of just one 
chord, and four notes, and 
when you listen to it. you find 
that it IS quite repititious. The 
lyrics are inane and some 
people even call them in- 
comprehensible. To really 
grasp the meaning of them, 
you really have to concentrate 
and dig into the soul of the 

I don't know if the group 
planned it or if it lust happen- 
ed, but the song seems to have 
a kind of theatrical concept 
to it. I'm talking about the 
mid-section of the song where 
there is an incomprehensible 
conglomeration of pure slop 
that grasps you for being just 
that-slop' This mad mass of 
sounds kind of reminds you of 
a fun-house in a circus. All it 
is, is a bunch of moans and 
groans and electronic trickery.

guitar nffs that really blows 
my mind. A quote from a re- 
cent magazine says, "The 
idea is that the guitar wouldn't 
sound so fantastic if we hadn't 
suffered through the holocaust 
preceding it." 

Recently on a Chicago 
radio station an edited version 
of "Whole Lotta Love" was 
played. I must say, it was 
pretty rauncy. They had cut 
the heart and soul of the whole 
thing, the mid-section. Gads, 
was it rauncy. yecch! The 
mid— section makes the song. 

I know I could receive some 
critism on this, but here goes. 
As a dance song I really think 
it reeks. But like they say, 
chaos serves its pupose.

The lack of equipment, 
tools, etc. also repairs and 
sharpening of tools was 
another gripe. When talking 
to the instructors about this, 
they stated that this was due 
to the student's misuse in 
taking proper care of the tools.

SPORTS' SHORTS by jim zbkk 

Do you know who was the 
oldest man ever to fight in a 
professional boxing match? 
The recordwas set bya heavy- 
weight named Walter Edgerton 
who had his last bout at the 
age of 63. He boxed profession- 
al ly for more than 40 years. 

Did you ever wonder how 
much running the average 
professional player does in the 
NBA' It's been estimated that 
pro basketball players wear 
out a pair of basketball shoes 
every three or four games! 

What was the longest shot 
ever made in a basketball 
game' The record was set last 
year by Jerry Harkness of the 
ABA. He heaved the ball 92 
feel in a desperation shot 
which travelled the length of 
the court and dropped through 
the hoop. 

Here's a basketball story 
which IS hard to believe. A 
boy once won a game all by 

himself while playing against 
five opponents! Pat McGee 
was in a basketball game for 
St. Peters High School of 
Fairmount, West Virginia, 
when his four teammates foul- 
ed out with a few minutes left 
in the game. The score was 
tied at the time. 32-32. Mc- 
Gee, playing alone, tossed up 
a shot and made it. Mean- 
while, the other team, with 
all five men playing, kept tak- 
ing desperate shots and miss- 
ing. The game ended and Mc- 
Gee won, 34-32!

Society today is putting 
too much emphasis on the for- 
mality of English grammar and 
style. We find that even in 
grade school, teachers are 
pushing their students with 
correct and formal grammar in 
much too strict a manner. This 
leads the students to believe 
that they may use only certain 
words in certain places. They 
become afraid of their own 
English language. 

By the time students reach 
high school and are asked to 
write papers, they have no 
idea of how to attack the 
assignment. Students are afraid 
to use their ideas because 
they have never learned how 
to express themselves on 
paper. The strict rules of 
grammar and punctuation push 
theirfree flowing thoughts into 
the background. 

The author of the essay. 
"On the Fascination of Style". 
F. L. Lucas, brings out many 
points that I agree with. There 
is no crime aga i nst being 
natural. So why can't people 
express their ideas in a con- 
cise, naturally written style? 
Formality has its place, but 
when used in all writing 
occasions, wordiness and 
nonsense tend to appear, mak- 
ing the writer sound like an 
intellectual farce. 

Each person isan individual, 
and each individual has his 
own style. When preparing any 

type of literary work, the good 
writer, through style, shows 
his personality and individu- 

Literature shows a variety 
of human experiences and 
appeals to not only the mind, 
but also the heart. For this 
reason, informal verbage and 
slang do not seemwrong to the 
reader who is reliving experi- 
ences in the book he is read- 
ing. If one read a book and 
were conscience of its gram- 
matical construction, one 
would not be enriched by the 
experience and personal feel- 
ings of the writer. 

For example, read a novel 
like Uncle Tom's Cabin. In it 
you will find much slang, dia- 
lect, improper sentences, and 
cut-off words appearing. How- 
ever, by using dialect and 
speech of the people, the 
author puts "heart" and "soul" 
into his work and you. the 
reader, share the experience. 
The story would have no flavor 
or color if it were written 
formally. Each writer must 
create his own kind of language 
to make up the atmosphere of 
his story-thus style develops. 

Grammar involves word 
order, but language is not 
merely correct usage or place- 
ment of words, it is the key 
which opens the minds and 
hearts of mankind - it's 

WHEELS by John H. Alleman 

Ford and American Motors 
are planning to produce mid- 
engme sports' cars. Ford's 
model will be built in Italy by 
De Tomaso and may be intro- 
duced this fall. It is rumored 
to be a refined version of the 
De Tomaso Mangusta which 
already has a Ford engine. 
American Motors expects to 
have its version for sale early 
next year. 

Fuel injection will again 
be available on American cars 
in a year or two. but at an 
extra cost of $-400 to $500. 
It will be built by Bendix.The 
same type of fuel injection is 
standard equipment on the 
VW 1600. 

Chrysler has made an agree- 
ment with Mitsubishi of Japan 
to sell their Colt sedans and 
trucks in the United States. 
The Colt is a small sedan 
similar to the Toyota Corolla. 

Honda is now selling the 
Honda 600 sedan in the United 
States. The less than ten and 
one-halffoot long car will sell 
for about $1375. The engine is 
a 37 cubic inch, 38 horse- 
power, air-cooled twin. 

The Mustang will probably 
be built on the smaller Mav- 

erick body shell within a 
couple of years. Other pony 
cars may follow the trend. 
Automakers are finally realiz- 
ing that sports type cars have 
grown too large for good hand- 
ling and performance. 

The old Falcon is gone. 
but the name lives on as the 
recently introduced "economy" 
Fairlane-Tofino series, a four- 
^oor Maverick will be built 
next fall to take the place of 
the Falcon sedan. 

Ford's new small car may 
have a German made engine. 
The engine, which would also 
be used inGerman and English 
Fords, would be imported and 
installed in the chassis over

"I want you!" Who hasn't 
seen that slogan on posters 
all over the country with Uncle 
Sam in his wild red. white, and 
blue outfit? Man, that's where 
it's happening. Haven't you 
heard? There's a war over in 
Vietnam, and the youth of 
America is starring in it. 

Hey, don't get me wrong. 
We didn't start it. In fact, 
when It was started, most of 
us weren't even old enough to 
know what a war was. But now, 
since we're becoming mature 
adults. It's either enlist or 
get drafted. 

But are we mature adults? 
The government only thinks 
so when they want you for the 
service. The prime victims for 
the draft are between the ages 
of nineteen and twenty-five 
year olds. But I'm only con- 
cerned with the kids between 
nineteen and twenty, inclusive. 
They're expected to risk their 
lives in some God-forsaken 
country and not have a thing 
to say about it. But are these 
same young men allowed to 
have a beer in any bar they 
chose in America? Are they 
allowed to vote for the Presi- 
dent of the United States? I 
doubt if I need go further. 

I'm not writing this |ust for 
myself. It's for all the guys 
who, like myself, are either 
nineteen or about to turn nine- 
teen. They haven't had enough 
time to really en|oy life. It's 
right out of high school, and 
into college, it you're lucky 
enough, but not really safe 
enough, because they're start- 
ing to hand out 2-A classifi- 
cations to full time college 
students, whereas 2-S used to 
be the usual college deferment. 

How much longer can this 
land of liberty go on like this? 
It's not the peacful country 
we have been trying to keep. 
Maybe the wrong methods are 
being used. Why not let the 
younger generation stay in 
their own environment, and 
strive to bring peace to

Do you know what a micro 
fragrance advertisement is? 
Lend an ear and I shall tell 

It IS a process called 
"micro-encapsulation" which 
enables readers to sniff a 
a product's aroma on the 
printed page. 

The present process is sup- 
plied by only two companies. 
National Cash Register and 
Minnesota Mining & Manufac- 
turing and the competition 
between them has spread from 
the market to the courts. 

Minnesota Mining extracts 
a product's aromatic oils to 
duplicate the product's scent. 
The essences are enclosed in 
microscopic plastic bubbles. 

1 I li 



The capsules are coated on a 
paper strip, which is cut to 
size and affixed to each 
advertisement. A f i nger na i 1 
scratch ruptures the bubbles 
and releases the fragrance. 

NCR's technique allows 
fragrances to be applied 
directly to published ads. 
eliminating the paper strips. 

So far. 3M has developed 
100 aromas, including those 
of bananas and bourbon, dill 
pickles and roses, pine trees 
and orange )uice. Officials at 
3M and NCR envision a 
multimillion-dollar market for 
their process. Both companies 
are already studying the 
possibilities of attaching 
micro-fragrance strips to pack- 
ages and cans of food. 

A really great idea! It would 
be an adventure in shopping 
every time you opened a 
magazine or entered a grocery.

NATIONAL LEAGUE, 1970 by Rkk Motter 

SPOTLIGHT April 3, 1970 


with Ray Wilde ond Tom Neost 

It was a cold October after- 
noon last fall and the Mets 
were the "Kings" of baseball. 
In the span ofeight frustrating 
years, the Mets turned from 
amusing baseball to amazing 
baseball as they reached the 
summit by thrashing the sup- 
posedly unbeatable Orioles 
4 games to I. 

The whole world was turned 
upside down when Ron Swobo- 
da lined a double down the 
leftfield line inthe fifth game, 
driving in Cleon Jones with 
the run that sewed up the 
World Championship. 

Trailing three to zip in the 
fifth game, everyone thought 
the Mets' magic spell had 
finally been broken. But then 
Donn Clendenon drilled one 
into the left bull pen and all 
of a sudden everyone realized 
that the inevitable was about 
to come true - the Mets were 
to become the world champs. 

But, one must remember 
that happened a year ago and 
things were bound to change 
duringthe off-season. 

Teams took drastic action 
to dethrown the Mets during 
the winter months and I be- 
lieve that the trades and deals

Pittsburgh Pirate 

Hitting, hitting, and more 
hitting IS always the word out 
of Pittsburgh. With six of last 
year's starting nine batting 
over 300. the Pirates have a 
manager's dream team at the 
plate. The only question in 
1970 IS the Buc pitching. 

Can Steve Blass win another 
16 games' Can Bob Veale still 
throw hard enough to top his 
1969 win total of 13' Finally, 
can Dave Guisti, who the Bucs 
acquired from St, Louis, make 
a big come-back to his old 
form when he played in Hous- 
ton ? 

Look for the Bucs to come 
in a close second. Maybe by 
only a game or so. 

Monteral Expos The 

Expos need a pitching staff. 
Being only in their second 
year of existence, they have a 
lot to learn and a lot of ex- 
perience to gam. Bill Stone- 
man is the only bright prospect 
on the pitching staff and he 
can't do very much by himself. 

Although the Expos lack 
experience at most of the 
positions, they still have two 
of the most powerful hitters 
in baseball. Ron Fairly and 
Rusty Staub. Give them about 
five years yet. Prediction-

Peace Corps Representatives To Be Here 
April 30 and May 1 - Why Not Check? 

Ever wish you could work overseas? Ever want to teach others 
less fortunate than you the skills you know so well' 

Peace Corps is now searching for people to fill positions in 
developing nations overseas in countries like India, Bolivia, Thailand, 
Jamaca, Barbados, the Philippines and others. 

The skills requested are countless including carpenters, masons, 
electricians, radio and TV, repairmen, sheet metal workers, foremen, 
heavy equipment operators, mechanics, plumbers, draftsmen, in- 
dustrial arts instructors, machinists, refrigeration and air conditioning 
repairmen, and many others, 

While in the Peace Corps for the two-years, your housing and 
transportation will be provided In addition, you will receive a 
monthly food and clothing allowance and upon termination, a 
"readjustment allowance" of S2,000, per person as clear savings. 

Other services provided by the Peace Corps for skilled volunteers 
are free dental and medical care, travel allowance, interest free 
loans, language training, job placement services upon your return, 
and others. 

Serving in the Peace Corps is not easy. It is more challenging 
than any other job you could hold. You will be asked to take on 
responsibilities and work duties which you could never have here in 
the U.S. as a recent graduate. 

It won't be the most comfortable job either, but those two years 
without your Mustang or electric dishwasher might very well be the 
most gratifying two years of your life. 

You will be able to ask about your role in the Peace Corps when 
two former Peace Corps Volunteers visit WACC on April 30th and 
May 1st. Literature and applications are currently available from Mr. 
Nahrgang, Placement Director 

Think Peace Corps there is a place for you.

Letter To The Editor 

WHEELS by John H. Alleman 

I wish to register a com- 
plaint through the SPOT- 
LIGHT- There is a ventilation

physics lab. in Unit 6. 

This classroom has no 
windows at all and only one 
airvent which provides a blast

The Grade System 

by Diane DeVictor 

Tm sure that my opinion of 
a new grade system in schools 
would sound a bit radical to 
the majorrty of Americans to- 
day. However, if this system 
could be tried, it could lead to 
better educated adults. The 
United States must realize that 
It is certainly not the world 
leader as far as education is 
conce, lied. 

I must say that I truly do 
not believe in the standard 
lower grades, such as first, 
second, and third. Too many 
standard regulations of age 
versus grade has limited the 
learning abilities of many 
children. This grade system 
has also taken the excitement 
out of learning. 

For example, a child in first 
grade may have good, solid 



problem that is on the second- 
grade level. However, he is 
depressed because his teacher 
will usually explain. ''This 
will be taught to the whole 
class next year."" 

This is very unfair to that 
particular student who is 
above average in his learning 
process. This child will either 
become very bored with his 
present class studies, or he 
will slip into the apathy in- 
dicative of slower students. 
The latter often happens in 
grade school. 

The slow student, who can- 
not keep up with the rest of 
his class, is sometimes afraid 
to askquestions that may seem 
simple. The teacher will 
usually try to help this type of 
student as much as possible, 
but most of the time, attention 
must be given to the majority 
of average learners. These 
facts show that, expecialty in 
grade school. children"s ed- 
ucation would be easier if 
they were grouped intellectu- 
ally, rather than by age. 

It is very plain to see that 
children mature mentally at 
different ages. Some are fast; 
some are slow. This is where 
a grade system limits learning. 
All children must be .taught 
the same thing at the same 
age, but not all children are 
the same mentallyat any given 

Many children who are slow 
learners could develop into 
very intelligent individuals, if 
theywere giventhe opportunity 

terest and intellect. Many 
children who are fast learners 
could go through school in 
half the time it takes the 
others. It is unfair for both 
types of students to be to- 
gether in one class. 

Some schools nationally are 

theory by holding special 
sessions for specific types of 
students. They are offering 
"easy reading" for the slow 
learners and "advanced math" 
to the fast learners. However, 
this theory cannot work 
efficiently because of the 
grade barrier. 

Another obstacle is time. 
There is just not enough time 
to teach two or three different 
"levels' in one classroom in 
one day. If these levels could 
be broken into grades, then 
the teacher would have the 
needed additional, time, and 
efficiency would result. 

Many of today's parents are 
not really worrying about the 
different intellectual levels of 
their children, they are con- 
cerned with report grades and 
passing. Theymightnot realize 
that their child could possibly 
be twice as intelligent as he 
is now. if he had individual 
help based on his own level 
of mentality. We can help to 
change these ideas only by 
speaking up about it. As I 
said before, there are some 
schools that are starting the 
change right now. 

1 believe that my opinion 
IS logical and offers a possible 
solutions to school problems. 

Sick Publishes Article 

Mr. Joseph G. Sick, as- 
sociate professor and Chair- 
man of the Forestry Depart- 
ment, has an article entitled 
"Instruction in Forestry 
Technology" appearing in the 
March. 1970. issue of Agri- 
cultural Education. 

The article describes the 
two-year Associate Degree 
Program at the College. It 
also relates the growth of the 
program from the time it began 
in 1966 with 30 students until 
the present time with 90 stu- 

There is also reason to 
believe that there are leaky 
gas outlets because the stu-

and physics is not that bad a 
course. And if it is to some, 
the venti lation problem doesn't 
help the problem much. 

Acutally, this has been a 
problem for at least two 

My solution would be to 
shut off all gas lines going 
into theroomsince the physics 
lab IS used for limited experi- 
ments, and to get a mainten-

I understand that the library

Check-cashing Service

A student check-cashing 
service is now being offered 
by the Business Office. Stu- 
dents can cash checks from 
2:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Monday. 
Tuesday. Wednesday and Fri- 

To cash a check, a student 
must show his I.D. card at the 
Business Office in Unit 6, and 
check amount must be limited 
to $25. 

Dr. Kenneth Carl, College 
President, announced the 
service to the student body 
last month following requests 
for the practice by the SGA. 

■"We're glad to provide a 
service that is needed and 
wanted by so many students.'" 
stated Mr. Andrew D. Mehall.

Method Pending To 
Aid Student Problems 

SGA IS considering the idea 
of having a WACC staff mem- 
ber take charge of student 
grievances. According to SGA 
officials, there is at present 
good rapport between SGA and 
College officials. If such 
communications should ever 
break down, a spokesman able 
to communicate directly with 
any school official will be 

With the present system, 
any student having a griev- 
ance reports to his Represent- 
ative, who in turn reports to 
his Senator, The Senator then 
reports the grievance in the 
form of a motion at the next 
Senate meeting. After discus- 
sion, the subject is voted 
upon. If the grievance requires

of student grievances, accord- 
ing to SGA. and were able to 
speak to all school officials 
about student problems, there 
would be faster results and a 
better understanding of WACC 

One of the biggest issues 
facing America today, as you 
must know by now. is the 
preservation of our environ- 
ment. Not only IS pollution a 
problem but our natural re- 
sources are being depleted. 
The automobile has been 
given much of the blame for 
these problems. 

Automobile production re- 
quires a vast amount of raw 
material. After cars are built, 
they use petroleum products 
in large quantities. The burn- 
ing of gasoline also burns our 
oxygen while polluting the air. 
The landscape is being 
covered with streets , highways 
and parking lots. When the 
automobile comes to the end 
ofits useful life, it '"pollutes"" 
the landscape. 

How can we combat these 
problems? One way is to drive 
smaller cars for the reasons 

The average American car 
weighs 3500 to 4000 pounds. 
The small imported car weighs 
1750 to 2000 pounds. If only 
small cars were built, we 
would use only half as much 
raw material intheir production. 

American cars travel about 
10 to 20 miles on a gallon of 
gasoline. The average small 
car can go 20 to 40 miles on a 
gallon. The small car preserves 

side IS being covered with 
concrete and asphalt to pro- 
vide roads and parking lots. 
Smaller cars require less room 
for parking and less space on 
highways and streets. With 
land already at a premium, we 
could save what little is left. 
When the small car comes 
to the end of its life, there is 
less to be disposed of. The 
junk yord problem could also 
be helped in another way. What 
we need to do is to salvage 

and re-use. getting rid of lunk 
and preserving our resources 
at the same time. 

American manufacturers will 
soon be building small cars. 
Whether they will be small 
enough, or efficient enough, 
andwhether enough people will 
buy them to make much of a 
dent in the problem remains 
to be seen. 

The Term is "Apathy" 

by Susan Hoberman 

Apathy is a word that had 

believe people were apathetic. 

t had to be explained more in 
I matter of masses. People do 
;are what happens: they, as 

ndividuals. |ust get lost in 
1 large crowd. 

That was my true belief 
ast week, but in four days the 
uudents at WACC have shown 
ne the foolishness of myways. 
Trivia. IS just that, trivia, 
wouldn't expect anyone to 
ihow a large amountof interest 

n some little problem or 
happening at school when it 
would never affect them one 
way or another. 

But when the state in which 
we are living passes legis- 
lation that will affect all its 
citizens, I expected to see 
action. Taxiation is not trivia, 
but WACC students came 

-through, like normal, with a 
total lackof interest-apathetic. 
Newspapers across the state 
made pleas for individuals, 
groups, or organizations to 
send by mail, phone, or tele- 
grams, requests to Governor 
Shaffer to veto the tax bill. 
Apparently students at WACC 
didn't care about these pleas. 
Temple University, which 
IS much larger than WACC, and 
with students being nothing 
more than numbers, responded 
with a massive telegram to 
the Governor. What did WACC 
students do' NOTHING! It 
would appear that when the 
need is great, such as now, 
apathy vanishes and action 
takes place, except on this 

There is no way WACC stu- 
dents can show their interest 
as far as this tax bill is con- 
cerned. But I won't believe 
that all college students are 
apathetic. Maybe only WACC

Disc World 

by Dave Gulden 

Did you know that there is 
a very nice, green-eyed, brown- 
haired girl that performs vital 
service to the students of this 
College' She is little known 
among the maiority of us (yes, 
I admit I was one of them) and 
this reporter thinks that it is 
high time everyone knows just 
one of the things she does, 

JoAnn (Thomas) Mast writes 
the Daily Crier, proof-reads it, 
takes It to the mail room, runs 
it off, and then gives copies 
to Diane Caschera who puts 
them into the faculty mail 

The purpose of the Crier is 
to inform the student body of 
announcements and special 
events. About 500 copies are 
made a day and many students 
don't see them, so it is im- 
portant that faculty members 
read the Crier in classes. "It's 
impossible to make 2600 
copies, therefore student 
awareness of events depends 
upon the faculty reading the 
publication regularly," she 

Jo Ann makes sure that they 
are in designated places. She 
keeps a stack on the file 
cabinet in Mr, Bowes' office 
and a student under the Work- 
Study Program distributes them 
to boxes in the various depart- 

Citing the basic problem of 
producing the Crier, Jo Ann 
said that she has a 3:00 p,m, 
deadline and people just don't 
get information to her by noon. 
She then has to check all arti- 
cles for spelling and grammar 
before writing them up, Jo Ann 
said that her having no edi- 
toral training creates a pro- 
blem, "If something is im- 
portant enough," she stated, 
"It IS carried a week. This is 
so the students can see it a 
following day if they haven't 
seen it before. And chances 
are they haven't'" 

"It's kind of a thankless 
job," she stated, "If things 
go well, nothing is said. But 
if things go wrong, as some- 
times happens, everyone's up- 
set," Her tram of thought is 
often broken by student inter- 
ruptions. However, Jo Ann is 
interested in the students, and 
the Crier is for them, for their 

She feels that the Crier is 
important and she states, "If 
It weren't important, I wouldn't 
do It," 

Indeed, I couldn't agree 
more. So, meet Jo Ann Mast, a 
most pleasant young lady who 
provides us with an important 
publication, just one of her 

Recently there was a 
"dance" at the rec center, 
sponsored by our ever so 
benevolent SGA, This 
"dance", in my opinion, was 
a farce and a disgrace to who- 
ever was in charge of its or- 
ganization, I feel that it was 
a poor example of WACC's 
usually compatible method of 
orderly planning. Now, before 
someone pulls a reversal and 
decides to make mincemeat of 
me, I feel that an explanation 
IS in order. 

First of all, it was held in 
the usual place, therec center. 
I presume the possibilities of 
the use of the Lair or the gym 
were looked into. If they were 
not available. I would have 
suggested a cancellation of 
the affair until such a time 
when one of the above were 
available. This brings me to 
my second point. 

This"dance" was a freebie. 
right?Now, don't get me wrong, 
people. It was a nice gesture 
on the SGA's part and it did 
give our tattered wallets a 
change of pace which did not 
go unappreciated. But anyone 
with any sense at all should 
know that anything for nothing 
will in most cases end in near 
if not total disaster. Look at 
the Toronto Peace Festival, 
that hasn't even started and 
already it's a disaster, Lennon 
has thrown m the towel and 
now there's talk of changing 
the location and of charging 
an admissions' fee' You can 
bet they'll try to make a pretty 
penny out of this mess. Any- 
thing for nothing, people really 
lap up and take in, Agree' 

Third, I thought this was a 
dance for WACC students. 
There were so many people 
there that it's hard to believe 
they are all from WACC, From 
the looks of some of them it's 
hard to believe they would 
even be admitted. We pay an 
activities' fee. Doesn't part 

of this go as payment for these 
"free" dances' If so. let's 
confine them to WACC students. 

less enough to have been there 
will agree when I say that an 
attempt to dance was a futile 
effort. It was like stepping 
into the ring for a round of 
boxing. Each dance presented 
a new challange - the survival 
of the fittest. It was so ridicu- 
lously crowded that it was 
luck that I came out with the 
few bruises that I did! And 
my toes, oh, how they hurt! 
In all seriousness though, if 
we're given ID cards, why 
don't we get a little more use 
out of them' There would de- 
f inatelyhave been fewer people 
present, Itwas so disorganized 
that a fire scare or some other 
mishap would have been horri- 
bly disastrous. The flow of 
people arriving and departing 
formed into one continuous 
line for the better part of the 
dance, blocking all chances 
of an orderly departure in the 
event of some mishap. 

Fourth, when I go to a 
dance, I like to see the band 
perform. Why do all the people 
insist on standing smack dab 
in front of the band' If they're 
going to stand around like a 
bunch of nurds, why can't they 
stand in the back, out of every- 
one's way? 

Finally, I'm sure I do not 
stand alone when I say that 
the rec center is suitable only 
for movies, games and meet- 
ings, anything but a dance, 
which, with the crowds we've 
been getting, could prove haz- 
ardous. Let's take our safety 
into account. 

Now that my gripes have 
been heardd hope), on to some 
good stuff. The Aztec Bronze 
gave their expected perfor- 
mance of fine musicianship.

by Sharon Brown 

It seems so strange. Today 
IS just another day, only for 
me It IS different. Today I 
finally died. My old self is 
gone, my past is |usi a dream, 
and my present is just an il- 
lusion. Only now I have no 
feeling, my heart has closed 
Its door. It has fell too much. 
it has witnessed too much pain 
and like a battle-scarred 
soldier, it seeks only peace. 

1 finally learned my lesson - 
no matter what pam and sorrow 
brings, I've learned to lift my 
head and walk forward with 
sure steps. Today brought a 
test, a test of strength. My old 
weakness is seeping out-my 
new found self-respect is here 
and like a tree, I'll never bend 
or snap. 

Today is a day of awareness. 
I feel disillusionment. The 
people who used to mean so 
much, they are nothing but 
vacuums and as the sea washed 
away sand castles, they crum- 
ble before my eyes. Today is 
also a day of disgust and re- 
jection. I feel so sick and tired 
of understanding, getting lost 
in the shuffle. 

The feeling of getting lost 
in the crowd is like acostchild 
and t wonder why. I feel alone. 
I was pushed out onto the 
street. Today I saw what most 
people are and like a blind 
person given sight. I cried, but 
not for joy. 

No. it doesn't seem strange 
any more, for today is )ust

Dormitories Purcliased 
To House 125 Boys 

Next September the College 
expects to be operating dor- 
mitories to house 125 of its 
male students. 

A five—year lease was 
authorized by the board of 
trustees on three properties at 
315-317. 325 and 331 Camp- 
bell Street. 

The properties are now op- 
erated by Marvm W. and Gert- 
ude E. Hoover. For health 
reasons, the Hoovers were 
planning to either sell the pro- 
perties or turn them into apart- 
ments for management by a 
real estate firm. 

The College feels that it 
cannot afford the loss of quar- 
ters for this number of its 
students with construction of 
dormitories under the long- 
range building plan at least 


Room and board for two 
semesters will cost each stu- 
dent $920- That amounts to 
$115,000 income for the Col-

cost of the dormitories es- 
timated at $99,370 a year, that

Final Notes From An Editor 

Earth Day was a big blast .t caused much comotion - and for one 
day Americans really pulled together with all the pride and together- 
ness our nation is historically noted for. 

The question is, will people thmk the next time a candy wrapper 
is thrown on the street, an empty pack of cigarettes is smashed and 
tossed on a lawn, or a soda bottle is carelessly left beside a roadside 

'""am the hard effort that students at WACC and people nationally 
have put into that day of "cleaning up" our country will have been 
worth it if ONE person THINKS and AVOIDS littering. (One person 
accumulates 1 1 pounds of waste per day. and most of it is carelessly 
thrown about our countryside. If we keep up our record, we will 
bury ourselves alive in our own wastej^ 

The Spotlight staff. Miss Markley, and I sincerely thank Mr, 
Winner and Mr, Long of the Audio-Visual Department, Mr. 
O'Donnell Head of the College News Bureau; Mr. Bowes, all 
secretaries the Printing Department, and others too numerous to 
name specifically, for their help and continued support of the Spot- 
light We have no regrets. The staff drove in copy and fresh news 
stories regularly. They were most responsible in their efforts. With 
the very competent journalism crew carrying on next year, the 
Spotlight can only get better. 

Thanks to everyone of WACC for a busy, exciting year - my last

Dear Jenny by Jeanette Shoffer 


A friend of imne arranged a 
blind date for me. I know what 
kind of girls he goes for, but 
I agreed to go when he told 
me that she was very pretty 
and had a beautiful figure. 
What a joke! She was cross- 
eyed and weighed 300 pounds! 
When I met her, I refused to 
take her out. She started to 
cry and called by friend to 
tal<e her home. My friend was 
very angry. He said I could 
not take a joke and told me 
that I owe her an apology. 
Do I? 

Don't Think So 
Dear Don't. 

He's right. You knew you 
were taking chances when you 
agreed to date her. You never 
gave the poor girl a chance - 
looks aren't everything, you 

However, you should tell 
your friend you don't appreci- 
ate his )okes and beware of 
the next time he has a very 
pretty girl with a "beautiful 
figure" for you. 


Dear Jenny,

Dear Jenny, 

What can I do about a dog 
who has the run of the house? 
Every time I go to visit my 
elderly neighbor, her dog jumps 
on me and runs wildly through 
the house. She treats the dog 
like a baby and seldom lets 
It out of her sight. Any sug- 


Dear Bill. 

Suggest that a relative walk 
the dog a little each day or 
offer to do it yourself. Then 
see if you can get her to con- 
centrate her attention on some- 
thinga little more constructive. 
Dear Jenny, 

1 have been dating a girl 
two years older than I am. I 
like her a lot and am pretty 
sure she feels the same about 
me. The only trouble is. my 
friends keep teasing me which 
embarrasses me very much. 
Should I tell them to lay off, 
or just let it ride? 


Dear Tom, 

As long as you en)oy each 
other's company there is no 
reason a difference in age 
should come between you. 
Don't get angry with your 
friends for teasing. They're 
probably doing it in fun. Soon 
they'll forget about it and find 
someone else to tease.

If you doubt these words by 
Sallust. there's one man on 
campus who could make you 
become a fast believer-our 
new SGA president, Jerry 

A 22-year old architectural 
technology major. Jerry said 
he believes that union is the 
key word in many of the cam-

that it IS possible if the stu- 
dents stop seeing themselves 
as separate units and begin 
seeing them se Ives as one 
united student body. 

Asked about plans for cam-

s have been orientation 

In regard to next fall'; 
tation. he said that 





that he feels will not only 
improve orientation but pro- 
vide a more stimulating 
atmosphere. As for week-ends, 
he said he is trying to provide 
more entertainment including 
inter-collegiate activities. 

Along with planning the 
future of SGA. Jerry, a married 
Navy veteran, is busy plan- 

Jerry Shoemaker 
ninghis own future. The archi- 
tectural major's own blueprint 
for the future includes obtain- 
ing a bachelor of architecture 
degree and eventually secur- 
ing a private practice. 

When he finds spare time in 
his busy schedule, he relaxes 
by playing tennis and swim- 

Accordmg to Jerry, one of 
the main reasons he ran for 
the SGA presidency was that 
he wanted to take an active 
part in the life of the college. 
In other words, you might say 
he wanted to form a union be- 
tween himself and the school. 

So if there is anyone who 
doubts the words of Sallust

by Diane DeVictor 

It seems that the older 
generation in America is con- 
stantly criticizing the youth 
of today for getting into po- 
litical demonstrations and 
riots. Parents are asking why 
the youth must rebel and what 
good It will do them. They 
don't understand that perhaps 
this generation does have the 
right ideas, but are promoting 
them in the wrong way. 

It IS sad, though, to think 
that the majority of youth is 
not demonstrating in lines with 
our democracy. Their view- 
points seem to be very radical, 
and in the political area, seem 
to be too far to the right or 
left. The older generation uses 
this as their excuse by asking 
why the youth cannot demon- 
strate for something "good". 

This could be easy to do if 
the older generation of patri- 


ould back the 

lious college stude 



.re "de 

they could 
» promote 
" ways. 

However. I don't believe that 
one finds this situation oc- 
cur ing very much. The only 
people who usually back the 
young of our country are the 
radicals and the communists. 
It IS my opinion that the 
communists are literally using 
the young generation so that 
one day the United States will 
no longer have a power gener- 
ation that believes in the 



This turn

cause of a communist lectui 
there. To give an e: 
One California University 
paying a regular salary ti 
black militant lecturer who 
an active communis 
bases all her lectures 
communist theory 
thousands of students 
every day to hear her. 

Maybe it is already t 
for the young generation to do 
something about their being 
led by the wayside, but the 
older generation still has time 
to do something about it. Can't 
they see what is being done to 
their own children' 

It's odd that the older gener- 
ation IS not out "protesting" 
against these things. It seems 
that only when people can 
bring something bad into the 
country do they bother to 
demonstrate for it and show 
their hatred for America. Isn't 
there a majority left in this 
country that can go out and 
demonstrate for the love and 
betterment of America? 
Demonstrations can serve a 
useful purpose, if they are 
used in the right manner and 
for the right purposes. Act- 
ual ly, today they are used for 
such radical reasons that they 
are destroying this country. 

It amazes me how good 
citizens can sitbackand watch 
their own country being torn 
apart. For example: When 
Madeline Murray managed to 
win the Supreme Court case 
on Bible reading in schools, 
the people didn't do a thing 
about it. I don't believe anyone 
really thought that this could 
happen. Where were the ma-

around this problem. 

Another problem he 
mentioned was that students

Here it is. The faculty should

Sports' Shorts by jim zbick 

Did you ever wonder what 
was the biggest payoff any 
athlete ever got for one per- 
formance' The record is held 
by the former heavyweight 
boxing champion of the world, 
Gene Tunney. who was paid 
$990,000 for his championship 
fight with Jack Dempsey in 
September, 1927. Tunney piled 
up about $15,000 per minute 
for that one night stand! 

The greatest recorded crowd 
everto witness a soccer match 
was 199,854 for the Brazil vs. 
Uraguay World Cup Final in 
Rio dejaneiro. Brazil, on July 
I, 1950. This tremendous 
throng IS about equivalent to 
TWO Rose Bowl football 
crowds on New Year's Day! 

Did you ever wonder from 
how high up a baseball can be 
caught' To win a wager, 
"Gabby" Street, a catcher for 
the Washington Senators back 
m 1908. caught a ball thrown 
from the top of the Washington 
Monument. The ball fell 505 
feet, at the rate of 161 feet a 
second, and the fall's force 
was that of an object weighing 
I 17 pounds! 

In 1931. however, Joe 
Sprinz, a former Cleveland 
player, made the top stunt 
catch of all time. He once 
caught a ball dropoed 800 feet 
from a blimp, the force of the 
ball breaking his jaw! 

Probably the greatest relief 
job ever done by a major 

league pitcher took place in 
a 1917 game between Boston 
and Washington. Babe Ruth 
was pitching for the Red Sox 
but he was quickly ejected 
from the game for protesting a 
walk to leadoff man Ray Mor- 
gan in the first inning. Ernie 
Shore replaced Ruth on the 
mound and was helped right 
away when the runner was 
thrown out trying to steal 
second. After that, Shore went 
on to retire the next 26 men in 
a row for a perfect game! 

Another unbelievable pitch- 
ing feat took place m a Little 
League in Florida a few years 
ago. In one of the great "iron 
man" performances of all time, 
pitcher Roy Kirkland of Sara- 
sota hurled five consecutive 
no-hit games for his team! 

We've talked about some 
great pitching feats, but what 
about the hitters? One of the 
most fantastic hitting streaks 
on record took place in the 
minor leagues a few years 
back. Nig Clarke, as a rookie 
with Corsicanna of the Texas 
League, came to bat eight 
times in one game - and 
slammed out eight home runs! 

In I 936, the oil tycoon Harry 
Sinclair became one of the 
hard -luck figures in sports. 
He wagered $500,000 on 
Brevity to win the 1936 
Kentucky Derby and the horse 
lost by a nose! 

Even though they don't have 
much going for them they |ust 
might play the role of 'spoiler'. 

Two Cop Ribbon 

Mr. Richard Rankinen of the 
Forestry Department and Mr. 
Frederick Rankinen of the 
Drafting Department received'

Thirty weeks of rigid com-

Touring Musical Fantasy Smash Hit With Children 

WACC's touring production 
of "The Other Side Of The 
Stars" has been making thea- 
ter history at the college, 
according to William Nixon, 
student director and cast mem- 
ber of the musical fantasy. 

A most demanding tour 
schedule has resulted in the 
Theater Unit's presenting the 
musical in elementary schools 
throughout the sponsoring 
districts of the college as 
well as locally. 

"The reception from the 
children is fantastic." stated 
Nixon who went on to say. 
"those kids really live the 
play as they view it. They 
catch the spirit and tone as 
no adults can and literally 
|Oin the cast by injecting 
spontaneous suggestions as 
cast characters speak dia- 

"I've never seen anything 
like It." stated Suzi Thomas 
who plays the part of the South 
Wind. "Those kids are abso- 
lutely beautiful." 

At the conslusion of each 
performance all cast members 
loin the children for an infor- 
mal discussion period and 
sign autographs. Indeed, the 
autograph signing sessions 
have proved to be the mark of 
the show's success, according 
to Raymond Manlove. a key 
man in WACC's Theater Unit. 

Written and directed by Mr. 
Stephen Press, director of 
the Theater Unit and member 
of the English Department, 
the fantasy has brought recog- 
nition to the college as well 
as the players throughout the 
Williamsport area.

MUSIC SCENE by Jim Carpenter 

Did you know that the 
country's biggest antique 
automobile show takes place 
every October in Hershey? 
It IS the annual eastern fall 
meet of the Antique Automo- 
bile Club of America. 

More than 120.000 people 
visited the meet last fall at 
the Hershey Stadium to see 
the I ,199 cars that had been 
entered. Anything from 1903 
curved-dash Oldsmobiles and 
Model T Fords to Rolls Royces 
and Duesenbergs. even fire 
trucks, were on display. 

The flea market is, to me 
at least, the most interesting 
part of the show. Rusted 
fenders, hub caps, cylinder 
heads, headlight lenses, old 
brochures, car magazines and 
anything else imaginable per- 
training to cars can be found 
there. The 920 sales' stalls 
in the market were lined along 
four miles of walkways. It's 
worth walking those four mi les 
)ust to see the tremendous 
variety of parts and parapher- 

nal i; 


Complete cars are on sale 
too. Last fall I saw a M8 Ford 

station wagon in perfect con- 
dition for only $2800. An old 
Cadillac roadster in rusted, 
decrepit condition was of- 
fered for only S I 5 ,000. Or 
maybe you'd like to buy a 
Facel-Vega or a Mercedes- 
Benz rear-engine sedan or a 
Seagraves fire truck— they were 
all there for sale, if you could 
afford them. If you can't, it's 
fun to look anyway. 

Perhaps you collect old 
car literature because cars 
are too expensive. How about 
some Automobile News show 
issues for $10 to $20 each? 
Or Packard and Cadillac 
brochures for $15 to $50? 
That's why my col lection 
hasn't grown much lately. 

If you're interested in old 
cars, visit Swigart's Automo- 
bile Museum east of Hunting- 
don on route 220 or Zimmer- 
man's Automobilorama south 
of route 15. Zimmerman's has 
more cars, but Swigart's has 
the biggest license plate col- 
lection Tve ever seen. 

If you know of any other 
car museum in Pennsylvania, 
let me know. I'd like to visit it. 




try men's souls' In the course 
of our college's history, the 
professors of WACC have 
rallied bravely whenever the 
ignorance of students has 
threatened their mental health. 

Today, a new crisis has 
arisen. Students are asking - 

The two professors best 
suited to answer this question 
in careful detail are Mr. Ned 
Coates and Mr. Daniel Doyle, 
Frisbee club advisors. 

The next question is - Who 
can |oin the club' The correct 
answer is - Any interested 

The advisors are proud to 
announce that WACC has be- 
come one of the many college 
campuses across the United 
States to produce dedicated 
Frisbee enthusiasts. 

The purpose of the club is 
to promote the sport of Fris- 
bee on the WACC campus, to 
develop a better understanding 
of the sport, and to promote 
the spirit of good sportsman- 
ship. Our best aim is to help

activities. Frisbees are fun! 

SGA Reviews New Constitution 

A new WACC constitution 
was approved by unanimous 
vote at a joint SGA meeting. 
Revising and improving many 
SGA and WACC policies, the 
new constitution has been 
drawn up over a period of about 
20 months. 

The constitution is basi- 
cally in two parts. One part 
deals only with SGA policies, 
the other is involved with 
WACC and its student body. 
Having been approved by 
SGA, the first part is now the 
governing factor involving 
WACC student government. 
The second part must be ap- 
proved by WACC President 
Dr. Kenneth E- Carl. Vice 
President C. Herschel Jones 
and the Board of Directors. 

A copy of both parts of the 
constitution can be obtained 
in the Student Government 
Association office. 

"Foremost in the minds of 
this organization shall be 
education improvement," is a 
statement in Article I of the 
constitution that now governs 
SGA. Many new rules and 
policies highlight the consti- 

WACC membership, includ- 
ing part-time. Continuing 
Education and Alumni stu- 
dents, IS discussed in Article 
II. Because of expanding SGA 
services, part-time and Con- 
tinuing Education students 
will now pay half the activi- 
ties' fee charge that full-time 
students pay. Alumni will pay 
full charge.
