engineering views
As an engineering student, I
would like to take the time to
present a forum of engineering
news and views. This is the first
installment in a series of periodic
articles based on happenings in
the engineering program. All
faculty and students are invited
to contribute material for
publication concerning matters
relevant to the engineering
program or the protection of our
natural resources.
First, there are three
professional engineering groups
on campus. They are the local
chapters of: The Pennsylvania
Society of Professional
Engineers (PSPE), which covers

all students in the engineering
program; Institute of Electrical
and Electronic Engineers
(lEEE); and the Institute of
Traffic Engineers (ITE). All
engineers are urged to join at
least one of these organizations.
They provide extra activities in
the field in form of magazines,
speakers, trips, and
job-placement aid.
The three organizations are
currently discussing the
possibility of getting the
engineering degree name
changed. But things are in a
"holding tight" stage at the
present time. More action on the
matter will be taken after the
University Faculty Senate votes
on Capitol's petition for more
delegated responsibility or
autonomy on March 7th.
Before we take any further
steps, however, much
groundwork must be laid.
Definite documentation covering
various aspects of legality and
motives must be prepared by
both students and faculty as to
why we want the degree name
A committee has been
established by PSPE to take
these fust crucial steps. If you
want to help, even if you are not
a member of PSPE, please give
your name to Gene Comoss or
drop off a note in the PSPE
office, W-106. If you want any
topics or issues verified or
discussed, please contact me,

Three Charters
The SGA Charter Review
Committee recently met and
recommended that SGA revoke
the charters of three Capitol
Campus organizations. These
organizations are: the Judo
Club, the Young Democrats and
the Environmental Committee.
The committee upheld the
charter of the Human Awareness
Committee and ruled that it was
an active campus organization.
The charters and status of the
Cheerleaders and Hillel are
currently being revised by the
Charters submitted by
organizations for review by the
committee and which were
subsequently accepted included:
Student PSEA, the University
Women's Club, the Resident
Student Council, Boosters Club,
Ski Club, Business Club, lEEE,
Chi Gamma lota, Capitolite
(Yearbook), and the BSU. All
other organizations are reminded
that their charters and club plans
and activities are due as soon as
possible to the Charter Review

The paintings of Maya Schock
will be on exhibit in the Gallery
Lounge until March 17, 1972.
These paintings are an ". . .
attempt to show in visual terms
the identity of Yin and Yang,
their interplay and their unity."
In oriental philosophy, Yin
and Yang are the two primary
elements, united on a higher
level, which consist of parallel
"The one [contrary] always
postulates the other, and the
relationship of each to the other
defines the limits of their
influence, the resultant of the
forces in equilibrium, and hence
reconciled in peace."
A native of Osaka, Japan, Ms.
Schock received her B.A. from
Baika College in Osaka and
studied art at the York Academy
of Arts in York, Pa., and the
Pennsylvania Academy of Fine
Arts in Philadelphia.

Vote Drive
by Mike Dini
The Student Government
Association of the Capitol
Campus recently sponsored a
"Voter Registration Drive". The
registration sitting was
conducted by Dauphin County
Registrars on Tuesday, February
22, 1972, from 11:00 a.m. to
3:30 p.m. in Vendorville.
The Registrars reported that
61 individuals (including
students, staff, faculty and
administration) "registered to
vote." This is approximately
four percent of the Capitol
Campus "community."
The following is a breakdown
of those individuals who
registered: Republican (14),
Democrat (37), Independent (9)
and Non Partisan (1). Two
individuals changed their party
affiliation and one individual
made a change of address.
The Voter Registration Drive
was a service project of the SGA
in getting the community
members of Capitol Campus
"Registered and Ready to Vote"
in the Primary Election, April
25, 1972, and the General
Election, November 7, 1972.
Meade Heights Pet Policy
The Meade Heights Board of
Governors, in conjunction with
Miss Kathleen M. King, Assistant
Dean of Student Affairs for
Residence Living Programs,
prepared a draft for a policy that
would allow Meade Heights
residents to have pets. The
proposed policy would change
the "no pet" rule to a "no pest"
rule. The Board of Governors, at
their last meeting on February
24, 1972, suggested guidelines
which will provide for adequate
controls to ensure the rights of
the student and the University
where pets are concerned. The
following guidelines were
discussed and incorporated into
the proposed policy:
1. A statement about the
reasonableness of the new
arrangement for the Meade
Heights area.
2. The registration of the pet
with the Board of Governors.
Prior to registration the pet must
be properly licensed and
innoculated against common

The last similar meeting was
held in August, 1970, and was
judged most beneficial. Since
that meeting several changes
have taken place at both Capitol
Campus and the seminar's guest
colleges. Consequently, another
meeting was advocated by
Capitol's Academic Services
Officer, Mr. Walter Slygh.
At the conclusion of
workshop activities, students
currently attending Capitol
Campus will meet with the
representatives from their junior
college. All Capitol Campus
students are invited to meet with
their old profs after 3:00 p.m. in
the Gallery Lounge.
