Last evening at the SGA
meeting a proposal was brought
up to completely turn off the
WZAP speaker in venderville.
Nine members of the Student
Government voted FOR turning
off the speaker. For the benefit
of the Student Body, the motion
was defeated.
It seems that some members
of the SGA are more interested
in ripping off the students by
way of the juke box. The SGA
has funded WZAP; any move to
silence the station would be
contradictory, for WZAP is a
student involved organization
with over fifty active members.
We realize that some students
may object to the music in
venderville, but can’t they move
to the outer area to eat? If it is
true that most students do not
care for broadcasting ZAP in
venderville, then it should be
turned off. Let the SGA gather a
censensus before trying to make
money where most may object.
Unless we hear it from the
Student Body, our voice will not
be silenced.
Response is welcomed
Letter to the Editor
Thanks lor Eating It
Dear Editor :
1 would like to thank some of
my friends who helped to make
the Turkey Dinner last week the
success it was. Without the help
and moral support of these
people, we could never have
enjoyed the evening.
Thanks must go to Kati and
Denise for decorating the
Student Center. It was beautiful.
And had the tables not been set
up, we would have had to eat on
the floor. Thank you Marlow,
Danny, Harvey, Charlie and
Irwin. And thanks to Mike, Stan,
Joe and Charlie for setting the
Now for the great food. I
think I can speak for all the
diners when I thank the nine
people who roasted the delicious
turkey. So take a bow Nancy &
Patsy, Joan & Joanne, Sandy &
Jeannie, Pat & Kathy, and
Just to keep it clean, I must
thank the people who helped
with the predictably massive
clean-up. Joe, Mike, Charlie,
Cheryl, Denise, Darlene and
Kati, thanks very much.
And a special thanks must be
given to Mr. Gautreau for all his
help. He provided the coffee
urns, the dinnerware, and
silverware, the candle holders,
the lemonade cooler, and the big

women Speak Out
by Becky, Kati, and a little
help from our sisters
Recently a group of women
here at Capitol Campus joined
together to discuss and share
their experiences and feelings
towards Women’s Liberation.
The group, which is still
developing, posed many
questions and also shared some
answers. Our purpose is not to
intimidate or radicalize, but
simply to find more questions
and come to some definite
answers for our daily lives. In
this article we will attempt to
give you a feel for the historical
and contemporary reasons for
women gathering together. Many
ask, what is Women’s
liberation? Is it just a liberation
of women? How deeply, if at all,
are men involved in this
movement? Why be liberated at
Contrary to the popular image
of Women’s Liberation, the
organization is not made up of
men-hating, hardened,
bra-burning, fatigue wearers.
Simply to sympathize with the
cause, a woman need not desert
her husband and children nor
give up her fancy make-up,
although these aspects are
pots to keep the food warm.
Thank you very much, Mr.
Gautreau. Without your help, we
don’t know how we could have
done it.
And finally, thanks to all the
people who came to out first
Thanksgiving feast. It was really
your spirit and enthusiasm
which made the thing all
possible. Thank you all. I hope
you enjoyed the dinner as much
as I did.
Students desiring to change
their present housing
arrangements must request the
change prior to December 3. Pat
Murphy, in the Office of
Student - Affairs (W-101), is
responsible for any on-campus
housing changes. Students’
requests will only be honored if
they are valid requests, i.e., if
there is a vacancy. New students
will be assigned to all openings
after December 3.
quickly picked up by the male
dominated mass-media world.
Even those most deeply involved
must struggle to change
conditioned self-concepts in
order to follow their conscience.
This process does not happen
overnight. Much mind and soul
searching takes place. How far is
too far or just how far do we
wish to go?
What is it we want? Are our
demands that rhetorical? To
begin, let’s discuss the working
class. “The working class white
man in America enjoys the
psychological and economic
aspects of two servile castes -
Women and Blacks - which
makes the working class white
man doubly arrogant and filled
with a false sense of power.”
(Dunbar, Roxanne, “Female
Liberation as a Basis for Social
Revolution.”) He can literally
own a home, kids and a wife.
For compensation, “The Happy
Housewife” has the privilege of
cleaning his house, making his
meals, raising their children, and
keeping his bed warm. How
lucky can she get? She never
really lives a life of her own, but
bits of his. Of course, if she’s a
“good wife” she may receive
some compensation through
spending money or the privilege
to attend Thursday night Bingo
with the other wives. (All this on
his terms) Is this living?
By no means are we saying
that our struggle or oppression is
any worse than others. Struggle
of minority groups are all
around us, but women aren’t a
minority group, yet “the status
of women - America’s numerical
majority at 51% of the
population - remains today as
relentlessly second class as that
of any minority. One-third of
the American work force is
female: Forty-two percent of
the women, sixteen and older
work. Yet there is only one
economic indicator in which
women consistently lead men,
and that is the number living in
poverty. In 1968, the medium
salary for full time, year round
workers was $7,870 for white
males, $5,314 for nonwhite
males, $4,580 for white women,
and $3,487 for nonwhite women
... on the average, a woman
needs a college degree to earn
more than a man does with an
eighth grade education.” (“Sex
Discrimination in Schools”,
Today’s Education, Nov., 1971,
Suppression comes from
many directions and from many
people. It also comes from
within one’s own opinion of
one’s self. To strive to look
deeply and question yourself, to
ask what you are and how you
appear is exceedingly painful,
and it takes guts. This begins
liberation. The redemption is
only that, “There is freedom in
the struggle.” (Dean, Heather,
“Free Women”)
I'm a good anti-racist and a good anti-imperialist and I expect as
much from all the broads I screw!
Faculty Profile:
by Mike Welliver
Business students at Capitol
Campus are probably the most
familiar with the figure in this
week’s Faculty Profile: Dr.
Wayne Lee, Professor of
Dr. Lee teaches Marketing and
Marketing Research in both the
graduate and undergraduate
programs. He is a member of the
Curriculum Affairs Committee
of the University Senate and also
belongs to the Faculty Council
of Capitol Campus. During the
past summer he worked with the
committee responsible for
selecting the new Provost at
Dr. Lee, who has been a
member of the faculty at Capitol
Campus since 1968, graduated
from the University of Idaho,
received his M.S. degree from
the University of California and
his Ph.D. from Cornell
University. He served in the U.S.
Army Air Corps during World
War II as a member of the
Military Intelligence Service
assigned to the China-Burma-
India Theater. Then in 1946 Dr.
Lee joined Penn State faculty.
Along with teaching, he took
part in research programs in
cooperation with the U. S.
Department of Agriculture. He

projects for the Market Research
Corporation of America. A
member of the American
Marketing Association, Dr. Lee
is Vice President of the
newly-formed Central
Pennsylvania Chapter of AMA.
Dr. Lee’s interests outside of
the classroom scene include
playing both golf and the stock

analysis of the stock market. He
also finds an interest in simply
talking to people in the business
world about the nature of their
When asked about his
impression of the students here,
he replied, “I find the students
here to be a mature and serious
minded group of people”. He
seemed particularly impressed
with the graduate students and
remarked, “Their experience in
the field adds a good deal of
interest to the classroom
sessions.” Dr. Lee also
commented on the quality of
the business program. “I am
quite pleased with the way the
program here seems to mesh
with the various backgrounds of
the students. The business
program provides enough of a
background so that the student
can branch out into many
different fields of work.” He did
note that, in the future, he
would like to see more
development for courses in

His outlook on job
opportunities in the future is
that the various fields in business
will provide many good jobs
according to cyclic ups and
downs in the economy. He
added that he is very optimistic
about the future economy and
noted that marketing research
will be one area in which great
expansion will take place. He
ended his views by voicing hope
that in the future the marketing
and business world will be able
to provide ways of more
effective utilization of our
natural resources.
