Beta Chi
by Sy Sebastianelli
A word of thanks goes out to
everyone who made the Beta Chi
slave dance a success. Twyla
Brown, advisor to Sigma Delta
Chi, a slave in demand or is that
a demanding slave, offered more
than enough slaves such as Sue
Willens, Cheryl Weinberg, Elyse
Paul, Sue Wolf, Laine Kenner,
Bezy Hughes, and more beauties.
Even Mr. Paul, one of the older
models, was quickly snached off
the bidding by two lovelies.
Turning to current events,
Beta Chi will have a guest
speaker this evening at it's
meeting in room E-310. Mr.
Ralph Kelly, recruiter for W. T.
Grant stores has been pleased to
have the opportunity to meet
and speak to concerned students
about occupational prospects in
the retail merchandising
profession. Grant's has some
1100 stores in 45 states
contributing over one billion
dollars in sales annually. It's
growth has lead to a need of
qualified college grads - anyone
interested can attend.

This week's CAPITOLIST
again consolidates two Student
Government Association
meeting reports into one article.
The first report centers on the
meeting of November 20.
Opening discussion concerned
ways in which SGA could better
inform the student body, and
the major priorities of the
governing systems. The
possibility of establishing an
SGA information desk and
expanding "Operation Contact"
were mentioned as ways of
gaining student input. The
senators also were concerned
with how they can affect
academic concerns such as new
courses and degree nomenclature
changes, and how to make SGA
run more smoothly by
tightening organization, making
committees live up to their
functions, and coordinating
President Mike Dini received
a letter from Shirley MacLaine's
secretary stating that the actress
can not definitely commit
herself to accepting the
invitation to be speaker at June
Commencement. The
Campus/Community Service
Committee has decided to
contact the next speaker on the
list, Sen. Richard S. Schweiker,
U.S. Senator (Republican,
Pennsylvania.) Former SGA
vice-president Max Brady echoed
concern for campus traffic
safety, as raised by a
Middletown merchant, by
sending a letter to Security Chief
James Paul. Brady called for
traffic signs warning of the
dangerous curve near the
dormatories to be posted as well
as the painting of crosswalks and
other warnings. Dini praised
Brady for his action, adding that
traffic safety is of added
importance with the many
children living in Capitol
Campus Village.
Dini also announced that the
Amendment to the proposal
establishing a master of public
administration program in a
hook-up with the Army War
College, Carlisle, passed by a
faculty vote of 77-23. The

Campus/Community Service
Committee to stage a Christmas
party, scheduled for Saturday,
December 2 in the
Recreation/Athletics Building.
An SGA committee, headed by
Sen. John Murphy (Jr., at large)
to set up a process of student
referendums was appointed. The
referendums, scheduled during
the period of winter term
registration, will consider
revisions of the SGA
Constitution and the possibility
of a name change for the
campus. A committee to deal
with student academic and
campus-wide concerns was
established to deal with such
pertinent issues; to act as a
sounding board.
In further action, the SGA
passed a motion dealing with the
required parking sticker fee. The
motion was stated as follows:
"We the members of the SGA do
at this time oppose the $7.50
parking fee imposed on us every
term, pending justification." The
motion passed by 21-0. Asst.
Dean of Student Affairs, Jerry
South pointed out that the
sticker fee, which is required of
all students of the University, is
funneled into a central budget
which is used for the
construction of parking lots.
The SGA, in another
unanimous resolution, called for
the establishment of a course
which will give instruction in the
preparation of thesis papers and
other research methods. The
motion was introduced by Sen.
Karl Salmon (Jr., at-large) and

committee o n

Slygh talked about the
various problems which have
become engulfed in his office.
"Currently, we are conducting a
study to see what we can do to
better serve the students. We are
also looking into the possibility
of doing more of our own
computer work. We have three
alternatives; one would be to set
a distinct programming system
at University Park. Another
would be to have it done
someplace else, for example
HACC. Another would be to ask
main campus to supply us with
our own equipment, but that
