Page 6 ill 11111111111 Denenberg Warns of Insurance Sales An article appearing in the January issue of NATIONAL ON CAMPUS REPORT stated that Herbert C. Denenberg, Pennsylvania's Insurance Commissioner, has warned the state's colleges about on campus sales of deferred-premium insurance policies. He said the policies are widely sold to students who sign a promissory note, payable after graduation, for the first year's premiums. The disadvantage of the policy, noted the Commissioner, is the fact that the promissory notes create irrevocable binding obligation and immediately eliminates the possibility of reconsidering and cancelling as could be . done with a conventional policy. ** * * BE SURE TO HEAR THE ADVENTS Before you buy your first or your next pair of loudspeakers, it will pay you to hear the Advents. Both the original Advent Loudspeaker and The Smaller Advent Loudspeaker were designed to make the top level of loudspeaker performance available at a fraction -- less than half -- of the former going cost. They are meant to be compared directly in every aspect of performance, including frequency response from the lowest to the highest frequencies of musical interest, to the most expensive and elaborate speakers available, and they sound clearly and dramatically better than many far more expensive systems. Those are strong claims, but no stronger then the feelings expressed every day by satisfied Advent customers. They help LBR Audio Associates, Inc. 1823 E Chocolate Ave. (Palmdale) Hershey, Pa.

McDermott opted for that modification because he realized if Capitol adopted the University Park calendar, 7-8 percent of expected annual student admissions will not be realized. It should be noted that the Faculty Organization voted overwhelmingly to follow the main campus calendar in an emergency meeting last October, with the stipulation that Capitol have the option to develop its own calendar for 1974-75. During last week's interview, the Provost felt he will be turned down on his request for the above calendar modification. He now plans to ask for another modification; that of retaining out current calendar and "tightening up" the winter and spring terms by eliminating Between Burger King and Red Barn Phone 533-4036 (from page 1) orientation and examination periods, and shortening vacation time to end the year by June 1. The Provost expressed a continuing need for the gradual growth of Capitol Campus in the term of increased enrollment. He thought a bigger institution will better serve the needs of the state and the region. Dr. McDermott also said if Capitol does not expand, there will be cutbacks in faculty and staff personnel and fewer faculty promotions. Growth is a decisive factor in his program to make Capitol relatively independent of University Park. REGION 6 INTERFACE Other programs proposed by explain why Advent speakers, with relatively little advertising and fewer dealers than several other brands, have become best-sellers (the first became so before it was advertised nationally at all), and why people go out of their way to tell us how pleased they are with them. For a reasonable, affordable amount of money, you can build as good a stereo system as you're ever likely to want around either of them. And it is why Advent speakers, with no visible indication that anything really extraordinary is inside their simple cabinets are worth listening to critically and throughly before you buy. Nothing about these speakers is accidental. They are the result of eighteen years' previous experience in making high-performance acoustic-suspension speakers, and the striking value they represent was made possible by what the Advent Company has learned about taking the most simple and direct route to highest performance. Nothing audibly useful is missing, and nothing unnecessary for home listening is present. The only basic difference in performance between them is that the original ($lO2 - $ll6 depending on cabinet finish) will play slightly louder in bigger rooms than the smaller ($7O). Both have the same clarity and accuracy, bass response approached by few speakers of any price or size, and an octave-to-octave 1 musical balance chosen to suit the widest range of recording techniques. We at L.B.R. AUDIO would be most happy to demonstrate the Advent speakers for you in our listening room, but if you can also hear Advents at a friends house, you can get an idea of just how good they sound in a home, and of what your friends thinks of them and us. We wouldn't suggest you make sure to hear these speakers if we didn't think you will find it worth your while. Thank you. WHY GROW? I 111 111 111 111 Students McDermott center on an alliance with Harrisburg Area Community College and Pierce Junior College of Philadelphia. He likened the proposal to a recently established exchange program between Lehigh County Community College and Kutztown State College - that of guaranteed admission to the latter upon satisfactory completion of studies at the former. Granted, the Provost did not mention going that far, but he alluded to it when he spoke of prospects that Capitol's courses be listed in HACC's catalogue and an exchange of faculty. "But how much should we mix the faculty? We do not propose a total lock-in." He also mentioned possible problems with budgeting the exchange program because of HACC's system of sponsering school districts. "But we can handle the paperwork; it is a sound idea philosophically." CONSTRAINTS TO. GROWTH McDermott again stressed the dire need for growth of Capitol Campus in order that it effectively survive. "Many factors inhibit that growth." He mentioned such constraints as the limited degree offerings, the lact of formal evening division structure and funds as well as structure and funds for a formal summer program. Other factors are no available state funds to establish a "much needed" research center and for construction of additional on-campus housing. He said he is considering the utilization of available mobile homes from Capitol Campus Village for married students -- prompting the influx of more graduate students into the area. As for construction of dormatories or Meade Heights type housing, funds are not available. Only by "cooperating with private concerns," would the funds appear on off-campus sites. * * * Calendar of Svents FEBRUARY 22-- At 10 AM, the Cultural Programs Committee presents the classic John Wayne film "Stagecoach" in the auditorium.

February 22, 1973 um--N NIMMIIIMMIIIIIIIMIWI Is THERE A PHOTOGRAPHY by Charlie Holeczy Unknown to many people, Capitol Campus has a darkroom. It is supplied with two enlargers, print washer and drier, drying room, and other necessities to develop and print. black and white film. This room is located in the back part of the Placement Building. Another widely unknown fact is that there is a Photography Club consisting of fifteen registered members with Dr. Rrunk as the faculty advisor. The Club meets every Tuesday night at 7:00 in the Placement Building. The abilities and interests in photography vary as there are participants and this is very true of the Club. The common purpose which ties the Club together is the improvement of darkroom technique--essential to the begetting of polished pictures. This creates an environment in which each member can be critized and assisted in areas that they need direction. Within, the Club will be setting up projects and each member will compete with the others by submitting his own interpretation of the subject. The first project is a still-life with a building as the main object. The photographer is not limited to day shots and night views of the subject is encouraged ' for a greater expansion of creativity. A second project may be impromptu portraits of a person. The pictures will be judged and the best will be singled out to act as a standard to critize the other pictures. The members hope to improve through personal and other's experiences. As a group, the Photography Club will set up a display of the best prints of each member. The exhibit will be enjoyed by the entire student body and faculty. Maybe people will realize that there is a Photography Club on campus. Capitol Cue?
