Ro: “How about giving us a
rundown on what happened at
the last SGA meeting...”
Lee: “There are four events
which occurred at last week’s
SGA meeting that I would like
to mention. First, there was no
quorum... Ten senators must be
present to conduct official
business. On Wednesday, we did
not have more than nine at any
one time. Second, the SGA will
send a letter to Mr. Mueller,
Director of Food and Housing of
the University, urging him to
give top priority to the
reduction of sound in the two
residence halls. This is a
supportive effort in behalf of the
more comprehensive report done
by an ad-hoc group of dorm
students. Then, the SGA
endorsed the reorganization of
the Organization of Student
Government Associations, that’s
the OSGA...which occurred at
Beaver Campus on January 16th.
OSGA will become a
less-structured branch campus
organization to deal with
common problems among these
campuses. Fourth...the Student
Court announced its decision
concerning the Constitutional
question regarding the
appointment power of the SGA
Ro: “What was the outcome
of the decision?”
Lee: “The Court ruled that a
2/3 consent of the SGA Senate
is necessary to legalize all
Ro: “Is there anything
happening within the next few
weeks that students should be
interested in?”
Lee: “There will be an
election to fill the several
vacancies in the SGA...and I
encourage all interested students
to run for office.”
Ro: “Can anyone run?”
Lee: “Yes, the only
prerequisite is a willingness to
work for the good of Capitol
Campus...and its students”.
Ro: ‘‘How are the
committees going?”
Lee: “We’re doing okay with
the committees that have
enough man-power. But I can’t
emphasize enough that we’re in
need of students, especially
juniors to volunteer for
committee work. Here’s the
chance for those who are
dissatisfied with Capitol to do
something about it.”

QUESTION: I have just
begun smoking cigarettes.
Whenever I light up, I get
intestinal gas after a few puffs. Is
this normal or abnormal? Also,
can you give me a medical
explanation for this
ANSWER: There are two
physical factors at work.
Nicotine is a powerful stimulant
to intestinal action, leading to
the observation that a fat cigar is
often followed by a bowel
movement. It is also likely that
you are swallowing air while
puffing, aggravating the
aforementioned pharmacologic
While treading the fine line
between accurate, medical
comment and moralizing, I must
say that you’ve got to be out of
your mind to start smoking
cigarettes. It is sad enough that
there are so many millions of
people who have been suckered
into this self-destructive
addiction through what at times
seems like the selfish interests of
an industry that panders death.
QUESTION: I would like to
know the principle behind those
belts one can but to wrap
around the waist and thighs to
rid one’s self of inches of fat in a
matter of days. With the
guarantees that go along with
them, they must work.
ANSWER: The principle was
stated years ago by P.T.
Barnum: There’s a sucker born
every minute. Gullible people
are suggestible enough to pull in
their paunches and impress
themselves when they measure
after using such a device.
QUESTION: Please settle an
argument my roommate and I
are having. He claims that men
first contracted venereal disease
from sheep, which sailors used
for there enjoyment during long,
womanless voyages. However, I
refuse to believe that anyone
could get that horny. Can he
possibly be right?
ANSWER: About the
venereal disease, he’sr wrong.
About getting ‘‘that
horny”—he’s right. The word for
sexual contacts between humans
and animals is sodomy (which
can also refer to certain sexual
practices among humans). Sheep
inevitably seem to be mentioned
when this practice is discussed.
This is probably related to size,
availability and the loneliness of
being shepherd. While offensive
to most people, such sexual
practices are thought to be not

Last week I wrote that we all
have a bitch to air. So air it,
right? Wrong! Who cares? No
one. We’ve been bitching for
years and still the bombers fly.
Meanwhile, “the most expensive
moon flight” goes off with all
flags flying. Terrific.
I’m up to my ears in dialogue
over world problems-what’s the
best way to cure them; which
ones do we cure first; or do we
try at all? And I’m up to my ears
explaining why I feel the way I
do to some slob who can think
only that his taxes are gbing to
some “creep” on welfare. And
I’ve had it listening to people
telling me why I feel the way I
do. TTie hell with it.
Do we have an obligation to
try at all? And if we try, will we
end up as raving idiots? Rave,
rave. Yippee. Fd like to hear one
good reason why I should care if
people are getting blown to hell
in Viet Nam. I’m 1-Y and won’t
be touched by a draft system
which should make no
difference to me. Why should I
aim for some goal that may help
to alleviate the problems of the
poor? And surely, even if I do

Are we sitting in our
academic ivory tower, discussing

Or when we get out are we going

killing on TV but balks at

So I’m sorry that I told you
all to bitch. No one listens.
Many people here have already
learned that. I’m down now and
tend to agree. But I’m also
stupid. So the next day or the
next, I’ll be back up trying to do
some vague thing that very, very
few people are going to care or
even know about. Well, c’est la
vie. Some of us never learn.
