the CAPITOLIST Vol. VI, No. 3 The Student Government Association held its weekly meeting Monday night while only a few members of the student body observed, two of them representing the staff of THE CAPITOLIST. President Terry Wimmer convened the meeting when a quorum had been reached. Sen. Dennis Hassler gave a report concerning charter reviews for TARNHELM, the campus literary magazine; Delta Tau Kappa; the Black Student Union; and the Chess Club, saying their reviews are pending. Wimmer mentioned an occurrence during the Faculty Council meeting where it was discovered Dean Heindel advocated an investigation into the current qualitative standards of independent studies. The investigation will be conducted by a sub-committee of the Academic Affairs Committee and students will apparently be able to serve. Sen. Lenny Thompson made a motion to require professors in It all started December 4 when a good Tennessee team upset the favored Nittany lions 31-11. Though Penn State didn’t play up to their potential, much credit has to be given to Tennessee. This upset made Penn State hungry for a win over Texas in the Cotton Bowl. They had to refudiate experts’ claims that Eastern football wasn’t comparable to the South’s. The Longhorns gave them that chance. And the Dons came through with an impressive 30-6 victory, Texas, as we all know, is the favored choice for the Cotton Bowl every year. This year was no exception. When Penn State was chosen for the Bowl, two Penn State students from Capitol Campus decided to venture to the state of Texas for the game. Fortunately for the two, Steve Wesley and Cal Yohe, they spent most of their vacation in New Orleans before going to Dallas. In Dallas, they found none of that famous Southern hospitality.

New courses were also finalized in many areas of Social Science, Humanities, Business and Engineering. Wimmer also announced that the case where one Program Head had allegedly usurped the Dean’s authority concerning final judgement of whether or not a student could drop a course after the 21 day limit had been referred to the Academic Affairs Committee. Other business discussed included the possible repeal of the credit-unit system which would, create numerous 3,2, and 1 credit courses. The SGA reminds students that the new Provost of Capitol Campus, Dr. McDermott, will assume his post next week. The SGA continued a desire to change degree language on the diplomas to read Bachelor of Arts instead of Bachelor of Social Science, etc. There was Bum Steers by Steve Rosenzweig was a Texas team of Longhorns that played like bum steers and about 30 Texas fans who were celebrating their victory on booze and pot on New Year’s Eve. But there would be no victory. Mr. Wesley, being the gentleman that he is, wished a young lady a happy new year from Penn State at their hotel before the game. Unfortunately, she was a drunken Texas student with a boyfriend and about 30 other Texans in the room down the hall. What happened to Wesley and Yohe was not an example of Southern hospitality, but rather southwest brutality. And this was before the game! What would have happened to them after the game had they run into the Texas students who undoubtedly belonged locked in cages? Here is a short description of what happened: The scene was set New Year’s Eve at the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas. The Texas fans had their rooms on the sixth floor which for some oddball reason was marked “twelve” on the elevator. It must be some weird Kennedy CAPITOL CAMPUS - MIDDLETOWN, PA 3 oo p.Tw.j "All The New* That Fit* .... We Print” SGA also a continuance in a petition for Capitol Campus autonomy from University Park. There was discussion over the continuing hassle of the requirement that SGA members have a 2.33 average and the dismissal of five Senators because they dropped below that minimum requirement. A motion by Sen. Hassler to set up a “suggestion box” for campus improvement in the SGA office was defeated. There was concern over the impending problems of the library, and a speed-up of action was urged. Dean Grimm mentioned the possibility of the SGA helping to fund the purchase of a small grand-piano for the physical plant, in an attempt to save money in the long run. Sen. Hassler announced that teacher evaluation forms will be distributed in faculty offices, lounge areas and the Library sometime next week. system for those tall Texans. As Wesley and Yohe exited at twelve for the sixth floor, they encountered a pretty young Southern belle. The dialogue went something like this: “Hi, are you from Texas?” Steve asked. “Yes, I am”, said the pretty miss. “Well, Happy New Year from Penn State”, as he planted a friendship kiss on her cheek. The girl who was drunk out of her gourd began screaming and shouting as she ran down the hall. Now girls, Steve’s kiss couldn’t have been that bad, so he assumed that when 30 Texas students came running down the hall, it was because he and Cal were from Penn State. Steve and Cal were quite outmanned but they did the logical thing when the Longhorns came swinging at them. After they both received shots in the eye, they hit the floor and prayed. So, the Texans did the thing of any other Southern gentlemen and began kicking them for a few minutes. Being fine Penn State fans, they knew they might lose the fight, but they’ll win the game. So, they didn’t report this to the police. Besides, the police down there would have probably locked them up. They forgot about the situation completely when Penn State crushed the bullshitting bum steers from the University of Texas in the Cotton Bowl. Penn State had a chance to go to the Cotton Bowl before, but instead the players chose the sunny, friendly Orange Bowl in Miami. Next time, maybe they’ll know better. After all, they already have brandedthe Longhorns and having nothing more to prove to the University of Texas and their “John Wayne” brawling students who were found to be loco on cactus juice.
