by Sen. Marilyn Levin, Chairman
of the Election/Screening
Committee at the Senate
meeting on Monday night.
Election day has been set for
Thursday, April 26 with the
presidency for 1973-74 up for
grabs along with the offices of
vice-president, secretaries
(recording and corresponding)
and treasurer.
In addition, senate positions
for six program seats and four
at-large seats are open.
Candidates for these senior
positions for next year can pick
up petitions in the SGA office,
W-104, beginning today and
must be returned by 5:00 p.m.
on Friday, April 13, according
to Levin.
Reportedly, both seniors and
juniors can vote in the April 26
The Student Government
Association on Monday night
passed a resolution which would
grant one unit of credit for
participating as an SGA senator.
The resolution was
formulated by Sen. Nick
Spengler and passed by 17-0
with 3 abstentions. Following is
the body of the legislation:
In order to perpetiate the high
standards of the Student
Government, and a continuance to
attract concerned students to
particpate in their student
government through election, the
folloWing proposal is being made.
"Student Government members
serving at least three (3) terms in a
satisfactory manner, which
constitutes a minumum of 75%
attendance and evaluation on
participation by the Faculty Advisor,
be awarded 4 credit hours, or 1 unit
of credit to be used in lieu of an
elective at Penn State Capitol
Campus. The elective will be
designated by the students' advisor
Central Pennsylvania Vietnam
veterans who wish to take
advantage of educational
opportunities available through
the G.I. Bill can now find help
through the PAVE (Pennsylvania
Program to Advance Veteran
Education) center located at
Three counselors, all veterans
who had no interest in higher
education when in high school,
now are full-time Capitol
Campus students and are
contacting and counseling
recently discharged veterans on
how to further their educations.
Robert Chaapel, David Miller
and Louis Slepetz work from
contact lists provided by the
Selective Service Office. They
phone or visit the newly
discharged veterans and inform
them of facilities and
educational programs for which
their G.I. benefits are applicable.
The PAVE staff also works
closely with the 425 veterans
currently enrolled at Capitol
Campus who may have problems
with scholarship, loans or late
V.A. checks.
Chaapel explained, "We don't
try to sell any one college or
program even though we are
students at Capitol. We simply
try to guide our peers to the
school which would be most
appropriate for their career
"There's a certain distrust of
the establishment and today's
vet will talk more freely with
another vet. A recent
Veteran's Administration study
revealed that today's veterans
are enthusiastic about higher
eduction, but many are not
knowledgeable in admissions
procedures and courses
The PAVE program has been
in existence, statewide, since
1970. It was first established at
Capitol Camp‘is in 1969, by
Robert Ford, present Director of
the State Selective Service, who
was then a student at Capitol. Its
operations are funded by some
state aid and by a federal grant
for emergency employment.
Programs are administered under
the Office of Higher Education.
David Kurtz, Regional
Coordinator for PAVE reports
that Pennsylvania has the third
largest number of Vietnam
veterans. More than 11,000 men
have been discharged in
by WW. Bonaker
and a pass grade will be entered on
the Student transcript."
President Mike Dini said the
resolution would be forwarded
to the Faculty Council for
further action.
In other news, Dini read an
announcement from Berni Boyle
who tendered her resignation as
Recording Secretary. She said in
the letter that she could not
fulfill her duties due to other
commitments, addikig a belief
that SGA has lost much of its
intended "purpose." Dini noted
that Boyle's position and that of
a junior senator at-large are
currently open. The President
announced the appointment of
Jan Marks to fill the senior
Math-Science post. He must await
formal confirmation next week.
Vice-President John Sheridan
reported the Spring
Dinner/Dance will be held
Saturday, May 5 at the Parkview

Bill. PAVE is attempting to
reach the majority who have not
taken advantage of these
