the CAPITOLIST Vol. VI, No. 8 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 Gubernatorial Scholarship Applications For 197243 Awards are open to undergraduate, graduate and medical students who are residents of Pennsylvania.

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 changed. 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, Denny Hassler. Charter Review Recommends Revoking 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 committee. 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 Committee. CAPITOL CAMPUS - MIDDLETOWN, PA. by Mike Dini "All The News That Fits . . . . We Print" Maya Schack 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 contraries. "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. Maya Schock is an instructor of art at the York Academy of Arts and resides in New Cumberland, Pa., with her husband, Floyd Schock. Capitol Campus 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 Exhibit 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 iifl'i' iflii'i 11 The Harrisburg Defense Committee has been staging events for the past few weeks which revolve around the trial of the Harrisburg '7'. The Committee events for the next few days are: Thursday, March 2nd: 9:00 a.m. Panel Discussion at Harrisburg YWCA "The Pentagon Papers: The Aggressive War." 1:00 p.m. A workshop at the YWCA, with legal experts on aggressive war and war crimes. 5:30-7:30 p.m. A potluck communal supper at St. Paul Episcopal Church, 550 Academic Capitol Campus will stage an Invitational Academic Conference on Wednesday, March 8, 1972. The purpose of the workshop is to present a forum for the coordination of academic programs and for articulation of students here at Capitol. Faculty and administrative staff from the lower-division campuses of Penn State will attend as well as those from various area junior colleges. The meeting will also serve as an opportunity to meet with Capitol's new Provost, Dr. Robert E. McDeimott. Faculty and administration officials will be available for workshops to discuss problems of common concern as well as changes in Under Consideration Program Workshop Thursday, March 2, 1972 animal diseases 3. Legal requirements must be met insuring the owner and the institution from being sued for injuries, or damages done by a pet. 4. All house-mates must sign an agreement allowing the pet to reside in the house. 5. The owner of the pet is responsible for cleaning after his pet both in the house and the yard. He recognizes, in addition, that his pet is not allowed in the other buildings on campus (i.e. Residence Halls, Student Center, Athletic Building, Main Building, etc.). 6. The University reserves the right to exclude or remove any pet which it finds unacceptable, or a nuisance to the campus environment. The drift, when finalized by Miss King, will be given to Provost McDermott who in turn will negotiate with the Department of Housing and Food Services for a change from the old to the new policy.

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.
