In an editorial decision last
week, the total yearbook order
of the 1972 Capitolite has been
cut by fifty books. Editor Tom
Ogden told Capitolist reporters,
"We just have not been selling
enough books to justify its
production. Despite that fact,
we will continue delivery of
books to those who have been
faithful enough to order."
Ogden suggested that part of the
staff's problem has been
students' promise to order books
and failure to do so. As a result,
an over-speculation on the staff's
part would have caused dozens
of extra annuals to flood Capitol
Campus next year. Rather than
cheapen the yearbook, the
editors of the Capitolite decided
to cancel all further organized
sales and order only enough
extra copies of the 1972 annual
for problems in mailing,
inter-school trade and staff use.
Students who have neglected to
purchase books and still wish to
attempt to do so are advised to
contact either Tom Ogden at
944-7768 or any member of the
yearbook staff immediately,
since the printer's deadline for
receipt of purchaser's addresses
is June 1, 1972.

A. Edwards Presents Lecture
S.G.A. elections were not the
only highlights of the day at
Capitol last Thursday. There was
also an interesting display of art
on hand in the Gallery Lounge
and a lecture presented by the
artist who produced it, Herbert
Mr. Edwards' work, which
included a series of oil paintings
on canvas and velvet, drew
widespread praise from those
students who got to view the
collection during its week long
stay in the lounge.
A graduate of the Art
Institute of Pittsburgh, Mr.
Edwards worked for a number
of years as a commercial artist.
He has taught art at the Bettis
Atomic Energy Laboratory. In
1959 he switched from the
commercial art field to formal
art and from there proceded to
work with the oil productions
which were on display. Primarily
a portrait artist, he has done
protraits of several prominent
people. His works have been
shown in Toronto, Canada;
Milwaukee, Pittsburgh,
Cleveland and New York.
His lecture dealt with the field
of commercial art and his own
personal feelings about the
meaning of art. His lecture was
highlighted by some interesting
statements like: "I have never
seen an ugly person. There might
be a lot of character in those
features that one might consider
ugly." and "A dead person is the
best model to use." His general
concept of art was that "art or
drawing is the desire to interest
