Campus Administration
Proposes Reorganization
by R.W. Bonaker
Last Thursday, Mr. George
Dressler, Campus Administrative
Officer, invited the entire staff
of The Capitolist to meet with
him and discuss important
campus issues, such as the
meaning of "Autonomy" and
administrative reorganization on
this campus.
He led up to the topic of
structural change by discussing
Autonomy (relative
independence from University
Pa r k). Dressler stated his
concern with the meaning of
Autonomy in relation to the
general areas of Academic
Services, the faculty, and
Housing and Food Services.
Currently, Autonomy only
affects the general "faculty"
aspect. Previously, all academic
matters such as the development
of new courses and programs
had to be cleared by the Capitol
Campus Committee of the
University Senate at main
campus. Since the Autonomy
measure passed the Senate in
March of last year, Capitol
committees in the Faculty
Council and the individual
programs have the
aforementioned option.
However, there looms a
possibility Penn State University
faculty may form a union. For
Capitol faculty to join the
union, they must join the
University Park chapter, thus
relinguishing some of the
Autonomy, according to
Water Resources
Seminar Tonight
Richard M. Boardman,
Director of the Division of Water
Quality in the State Department
of Environmental Resources,
will direct a seminar on "Water
Quality Planning in
Pennsylvania" at Capitol
Campus tonight.
The seminar, which is open to
the public and free, will be held
from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in Room
E-3310 of the Main Building. It
is one of a series being held each
Thursday on Water Resources
and Water Pollution Control.
Boardman served as a
consulting sanitary engineer for
a private Missouri firm prior to
joining Pennsylvania's
Department of Health in 1958.
He holds a Bachelor of Science
degree from Pennsylvania State
University and a Master of
Science from Cornell University.
A registered professional
engineer, he is a member of the
American Society of Civil
Engineers, the Water Pollution
Control Federation and serves
on the research and program
chairman of the Water Pollution
Control Association of
Mr. George Dressler,
Adminstrative Officer
In the area of Academic
Services, Autonomy has yet to
be realized as all computer
operations and records-keeping
are handled at University Park.
Transcripts can be obtained only
through main campus, at great
inconvenience to Capitol
students. Dressler reported he
and Mr. Walter Slygh, Academic
Services Officer, are investigating
new records-keeping outlets. The
purchase of separate computer
equipment would be extremely
expensive, he said. Establishing a

Pets Get Ousted
From The Heights
Mike Welliver
One of the main concerns
around the Heights this week
been the controversy arising
from the removal of pets from
some of the houses in the
campus community. In a
situation such as this there are
usually different sides to the
story as to what occurred.
I was first informed of such
actions when a student entered
the Capitolist office about a
week ago with the story that the
Chief Security Officer, Mr. Paul,
had entered someone's house
and removed a pet goldfish. This
story was soon to be proved
totally false; nonetheless, it did
seem to stem from actions that
did actually occur along that
same line. By the next day two
incidents had been reported
about pets being removed from
houses in the Heights. One
situation involved the removal of
two pups from a house on
Kirtland Ave., and the other
incident involved a cat which
was confiscated from a house on
Weaver Ave.
Immediately there were
questions asked about whether
or not rights were violated in the
actions that were taken by Mr.
The Housing and Food
Service operates out of
University Park at the present
time. The service is a very
expensive operation to
undertake, Dressler stated.
"Looking at it with my
accounting background, I'm
wary of the aspect of becoming
completely independent from
University Park. If we take the
full responsibility, we must
tackle all of the problems, such
as purchasing furniture and
paying an adequate portion of
the overhead, something we are
not prepared to do at this time.
Let's not get away from the
benefits of big brother."
In an article in last week's
issue, "Combat Zone," Dr. John
Grimm, Dean of Student Affairs
alluded to the possibility of the
entire Penn State Housing and
Food operation relocating to
Capitol Campus. Dressler stated,
"there is absolutely no truth to
that statement."
Dressler fmally discussed the
proposed intra-campus
decision-making structure
changes..He said straightaway, "I
don't know why Kathy King
(Former Asst. Dean of Student
Affairs) quit her job. I had no
idea she intended to do so."
Dressler said he then discovered
Ms. King had submitted a letter
of intent to resign in early
December and made it official
two weeks later. Her post will
not be filled immediately.
Last week, Grimm announced
his immediate superior, formerly
(Continued on page 4)
Paul. In an interview with the
Chief Security Officer, I found
that indeed there seemed to be
no cause to consider his actions
out of line, at least from the
legal standpoint of university
policies. The policies of the
university concerning the
removal of abandoned animals
and the issuing of warnings to
those having pets were carried
out to the letter. In the two
incidents where pets had been
removed, warnings had been
issued, in the case of the two
pups; and in the case of the cat
being removed, the animal was
termed a stray.
The plot thickens with the
question as to whether or not
Mr. Paul had the right to enter
the houses and remove the pets.
It is reported that in both cases,
the students who confronted Mr.
Paul would not grant him
permission to remove the
animals; still they were removed.
This is the point that most
people seem to be upset about.
It might be good to point out
the details of how the NO-Pet
Policy works. First, if a pet is
found running loose on campus,
it is to be considered a stray and
