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

1972-73 budget, as compared to
$2,000 last year. 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
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
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
Mr. Marks has a lot of
convincing to do.

What't this??? Some well dressed students returning from the
supermarket? Not exactly. A closer look shows that the group is part

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
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
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.

the modern flute. They are held

transversely as is the modern
flute. 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.
