at Clemson in 1963 and 1964
while pursuing his master's.
From there, he became part-time
instructor at the University of
Delaware from 1964 to 1968
after which he spent the next
four years doing research for the
University in Newark, Delaware.
This research was done on the
Barkhausen Effect; more
specifically, ways to reduce the
amount of power lost through
heat in iron. This also was the
subject of his dissertation at
Dr. Rogers currently is the
advisor for WZAP, and he brings
a storehouse of knowledge and
experience in radio electronics
with him for that task. He was

electronics, he has a number of
28 JANUARY 73
I stretch to feel your sunny warmth of noon
In spring with hands encased in leather gloves
That numb sensation; I'll be clutching soon
Frustrations of masked fingers touching love.
I am so blinded to the darkened now
By strips of linen that embalm my brain
And seal in past misfortunes as the plow
Inters my mind to lie 'neath autumn rains.
The casing of my heart now does permit
But tiny waves to travel forth across
The space between. So tightly does it fit
As it constricts with every moment lost.
Please take the linens, casings and the gloves—
Allow my arms to circle other loves.
U.P. COUNSELOR SAYS XGIs
MISSING COLLEGE EDUCATION
University Park, Pa., - There
are too many military veterans
in Pennsylvania, unnecessarily
missing out on a college
education, says John J. Swords,
veterans counselor at The
Pennsylvania State University.
"Although Penn State
Persently has more than 4,000
veterans enrolled, too many
returning Pennsylvania veterans
have not availed themselves of
this educational opportunity,"
says Swords, who adds that
there are some myths that need
Two of these myths are that
it's impossible to adjust to
college after being out of school
for a long period, and that
opinions about a variety of other
topics. He describes himself as a
political conservative. However,
he qualified this by offering his
opinion on the principles of
conservatism, "Before we tear
the fence down, let's see •why it
was put up."
After living in Pennsylvania
• for the past four months, he
state, "Pennsylvania is the most
unique state I've ever lived in.
It's the land of taxes." Dr.
Rogers also stated that he felt
our society has gone overboard
with college emphasis. He
believes that there are a lot of
technical jobs available that do
not require a college degree.
Here at Capitol, Dr. Rogers is
teaching two courses of CMPSE
239, a computer science course.
Most of his students are EDET
majors, but some are civil
engineering students and one is a
He also has recently been
elected to the Writing
Proficiency Committee for
EDET majors. It is this
committee's job to improve the
writing techniques of students in
the EDET program. Dr. Rogers
added that, if an engineer has
the ability to write, he should
look into the field of technical
writing, a wide open field
lacking qualified personnel.
An interesting note on Dr.
Rogers is that he is the ninth
professor in his family's history.
Among his more notable•
ancestors, are two from William
and Mary College that consulted
with Thomas Jefferson on the
founding of the University of
Virginia, and William Barton
Rogers, who founded the
Massachusett's Institute o
Technology in the 1880's.

"Veterans with a
demonstrated need are provided
financial assistance," Swords
emphasizes. "And the University
has developed a remedical
preparation program that
enables veterans to qualify for
advanced training, and a number
of those veterans who had not
completed high school prior to
entry into the service are not

State Senator Robert A.
Rovner (R-6th District), the
youngest member of the
Pennsylvania Senate,. introduced
Senate Bill 60 in order to lower
the drinking age in Pennsylvania
from 21 years to 18 years.
Rovner said, "It is necessary
for the Pennsylvania Legislature
to favorably on the subject
of 18 year old drinking in the
very near future, because in
January 1972 a new law
allowing 18 year olds to drink in
New Jersey went into effect.
Our neighboring State has
become the 15th state in the
Union to fall into step with a
throughout the nation to grant
adult rights to 18 year olds.
"I have introduced the bill to
allow 18 year olds to' drink in
Pennsytvania, because it is a lot
safer to keep the young people
in our State than to force them
to drive across State lines. Now
they can go the practically all
the states surrounding
drink if they wish (New York,
West Virginia, New Jersey, and
Ohio to some extent)," said
Senator Rovner said, "I want
to make it clear that I am not
saying that 18 year olds should
drink, but if they do, we should
keep them in Pennsylvania
rather than force them to drive
distances out of the State."
Senator Rovner said all who
support his bill should contact
their State senator or House
member letting them know of
such support. He continued,
"Young people should have their

B.S.U. ARTS FESTIVAL
Over the past few years, on college campuses and universities
where black students have been in attendance, Black Student
Organizations have been developing, producing or sponsoring Black
Cultural Extravaganzas or Black Cultural Arts Festivals. These
programs have been perceived by the blacks who present them as
means of expressing their pride in their black culture and heritage.
This year the members of the Black Student Union of Capitol
Campus are proud to be able to present their first annual Black Arts
Festival, April 3 through 7. We see our Black Arts Festival as one
that is not only an expression of our black pride, but also as a means
of: (a) heightening the levels of awareness of various aspects of the
black experience throughout the campus and the larger communities
and (b) through greater awareness, understanding and appreciation
of the black experience thereby fostering better relationships
between black and white.
We hope that the campus and surrounding communities at large
will participate with us in our endeavor.
Remember the dates APRIL 3 -7, the BLACK CULTURAL ARTS
FESTIVAL IS HERE! It is yet another mode of black expression.
