We Print" Vol. IX, N 0.6 Yearbook May be Killed by SGA At the Student Government Association meeting this past Monday night, the campus yearbook, The Capitolite, nearly "got the ax." And the crisis has yet to be resolved. The situation grew out of the Finance Committee report that stated certain activities remain to be funded this year. Priorities included the Spring Music Festival, the Spring Dinner e . Dance, a Commencers t bar-be-que, and a senior class - t in addition to expec ted allocations for club activities. It. was felt that funding for these events would be jeopardized if outstanding debts for the yearbook would have to be assumed by the SGA. Senator Ron Synder (Sr. - Engineering) presented a motion that the SGA back the yearbook all the way and cover any possible losses. The motion was defeated by 11-5 with 3 abstentions. Vice-President John Sheridan moved that all yearbook activities be suspended, but the motion was tabled until- the next meeting on February 19. This reporter contacted Capitolite Editor Jan Marks, who was unable to attend the meeting, for additional information concerning the yearbook situation. Mr. Marks admitted that the idea of having a collegiate annual was a dying concept, but he felt his staff could "pick up the slack," and sell an adequate number of yearbooks and complimentary advertising space. The estimated cost of the yearbook was placed at $6,000 for an edition comparable to the 1972 annual. Or a streamlined edition (no color photography and silk-screen cover) would cost .$5,500. The SGA allocated $1,200 to The Capitolite for the M*4444444444 44 444444 41ii.44 Dance Marathon Set Tomorrow night, the Social Committee presents the final portion of Nostalgia Week with the Mr. Oldies Show and Dance Marathon.

But also last yeai the SGA had to "bail out" the yearbook with nearly one thousand dollars from an encumbrance fund. Marks said the yearbook staff has sold only 137 annuals as of this writing, which is behind the pace set for this time last year. He has stated that close to 550 yearbooks must be sold, supplemented by $9OO worth of advertising in order to "break even." But Jerry South, Asst. Dean of Student Affairs said even with that proposed income, the yearbook may go into the red• Last year, 424 people purchased The Capitolite, and sales have averaged nearly 480 for the last three years, according the Marks. He said he was not really discouraged by the SGA action, but is in the state of apprehension. Last year, $5OO in advertising was sold, and Marks said he was confident his staff could at least match last years.sales. Yet, only matching last years sales would still leave The Capitolite with a $1,600 debt. Only by achieving the goal of 550 yearbook sales and $9OO in advertising would the yearbook approach the break-even point. Marks said he was optimistic about that possibility even though the annual has yet to sell any advertising space. It is evident by the SGA's Monday night action that Marks will have trouble persuading that body to continue yearbook operations. Only by cutting costs, reducing the number of pages, and pressing ahead with book and advertising sales, will he change the minds of SGA senators. Mr. Marks has a lot of convincing to do.

Parking Fee to be reduced? by R.Nillkirn Bon*kez The Student Government Association, at its meeting on February 5, passed a resolution calling for a drastic reduction of the parking "privilege" fee. The SGA proposal called for a new fee payment based at $2.50 a term as opposed to the current $7.50 stipulation. Following is the SGA motion, as made by Aaron Spicher: "... that the parking lot fee be made at $7.50 a year or $2.50 a term, for the use of the main parking area which is now under the parking lot fee concern, with actiion by March 15, 1973." Copies of the SGA resolution were reportedly forwarded to Dr. Francis Ferguson, Chairman of the Task Force on Space and Facility Utilization, and Mr. George Dressler, Administrative Officer. Spicher stated the current fee payments go into a University-wide fund which is used solely, for the initial construction of parking lots which are adjacent to classroom buildings. He said the fee does not cover lot construction in University residence areas, or snow removal and lot maintenance. Spicher, an SGA member who is al so a student representative on sub-committee of the previously mentioned task force, said the subcommittee met last Thursday and approved the SGA measure on a consensus vote. The subcommittee "saw no need for additional parking lot construction in the next five years," according to Spicher. In addition to Spicher, subcommittee members include Senator Harold Brown (Jr.-Humanities), Dr. Carolyn Dexter and Prof. Ambrose Klain. Spicher, acting on behalf of the SGA, gave justification for the reduction measure. He explained the universal fund concept, and related that with meant iot construction on campus countering the money poured into the fund by campus students (faculty and staff are not required to pay the fee), there is a deficit of nearly $50,000, as ov November 30, 1972. It was estimated that at the current total of $22.50 paid by students purchasing a sticker on a three term a year basis, the deficit could be "paid off in approximately two years.

Sometimes they are referred to as "Fipple Flutes" or "block-flutes". They are generally constructed of different hard woods (pear, palesander, etc.) There are five types of recorders; discant or sopranino (very high sounding), soprano, alto, tenor, and bass. A group of four or five recorders comprising these ranges is called a consort. They were.extremely popular in the 16th, 17th, and 18th century. ** * * Council to meet The campus Presidents Council will stage a meeting today, Thursday, February 15 at 7:00 p.m. in the Gallery Lounge.
