SGA Proposes Mandatory
Activities Fee
Bob Bonaker
At the SGA meeting on
Monday night, the Senate took a
firm position on the issue of a
mandatory student activities fee.
Sen. Nick Spengler
introducted a resolution, which
passed 13-3, setting the parking
fee at two dollars and a student
"Program/Activities Fee" at five
dollars on a per term basis for
undergraduate students. The
proposal will be forwarded to
Provost Robert E. McDermott
for negotiation.
Clauses in Spengler's
resolution, in addition to the
previously mentioned fees, may
not please McDermott, who had
raised the issue last week when
he announced he was cutting off
the departmental allotment to
SGA, due to the critical financial
system university officials are
projecting. Spengler called for
the "university" to channel $5
per student per term to the
SGA. But, the $2 parking "can

The old adage "you can't get
something for nothing" was
upheld in a recent action when
the parking fee, which is set at
$7.50 by the university's Board
of Trustees, was lowered to one
dollar by Provost McDermott.
McDermott decreased the fee,
for the spring term only, after
the Student Government
Association unanimously passed
a resolution calling for a boycott
of the $7.50 fee.
Following the fee reduction,
Mr. George Dressler,
Administrative Officer sent out a
letter specifying the regulations
to be followed with the fee
reduction. He said appeals for
violations of failing to possess a,
sticker would be prohibited
within reason. Also, all funds
gathered from payment of fines
for any motor vehicle violation,
which normally were channeled
to Student Government, would
hence be transferred to the
physical plant budget.
Education Students Teach in City Schools
Thirty-four seniors at Capitol
Campus, majoring in elementary
education, are student teaching
in schools throughout the
Commonwealth during the
Spring Term.
One senior is doing her
practice teaching in an
elementary school in San
Antonio, Texas.
The elementary education
program is designed to prepare
students for teaching in urban
schools, with the assumption
that a teacher who is
well-prepared for inner-city
teaching can be a competent
teacher anywhere. Particular
emphasis is placed upon the
special problems of teaching the
minority groups prevalent in city
In keeping with this
philosophy, most of these
seniors are engaged in
conducting classes in city
schools. In preparation for
student teaching, each candidate
for the baccalaureate degree in
elementary education has spent
nine weeks of the junior year in
the classroom, observing

Spengler said. Previously,
McDermott desired SGA

fee and he would in turn toss
parking fee monies into the SGA
When he addressed the SGA
on April 9, the Provost
emphasized SGA, in no way,
would receive a formal budget
from the university or Capitol
From all appearances, SGA
will have a tough time getting
McDermott to go along with .a
proposal which would have a
cost -overrun, based on 1,000
students, when he is - trying to
shave $250,000 from Capitol's
budget to comply with a
directive issued by President
In rough figures, the SGA
proposal will raise $24,000 in
revenue fora student population
of 1,000 in 1973-74 while this
year's student body worked with
$13,200 for 1,500 students.
Our Capitolist reported
consulted SGA Treasurer Tom
Dixon to discover how much
money the organization would
be losing in the action. Dixon
said that since July of last year,
$919.50 was given the SGA in
the "deal." Following are the
deposit dates and the amounts:
Sept, 11, $ll2 (includes all
funds from July 1); Oct. 6, $49;
Nov.B, $148; Dec. 12, $134.50;
Jan. 8, $158.50; Feb. 2,
$155.50; March' 5, $162.
Obviously, SGA will be losing an
average of $l5O in income a
In effect, with the fee
reduction, the university is
losing approximately $5,000

universal parking fee fund from
Capitol. Apparently, the campus
administration feels that factor
justifies the termination of the
flow of fine monies to the SGA.

by SGA members at a recent
meeting, the group. acquiesced

Intently peering out at you from far
Behind psychotic veils, the acid glass
Of smeared, caked windows that my vision mars;
How much do I remain within the past?
How truly badly is my sight impaired;
The faces seem so anxious to acquaint
Yet pass and leave all pleasantry unshared.
Discrepancies: my eyes the scene must paint
With colours other than the ones you use.
How else can we account for all the vast
Differences existing Iween our views?
Have you as well been clouded by a past?
My eye will catch a pebble as it gleams -
I'll smash this ugly pane that lies between. C-B
evening session will begin with
poetry reading and will then
move into rock with professional
lighting equipment supplies.
This event should be a good
time for everyone because
everyone attending helps create
it. Anyone wishing to participate
or desiring additional
information can contact Rich
Lucas at 944-1226.

Miles, past DTK President, was
introduced and in turn
introduced newly inducted
officers. Special recognition was
granted Dr. Elmer N. Lear for
his efforts in organizing DTK on
Capitol Campus. New members
were welcomed into the

McAree gavean interesting talk in
the role of the social scientist in
the Vietnam conflict. He
contended that every
Administration since Eisenhower
had neglected to utilize the
intellectual resources of these
people when policies regarding
Indochina were being
formulated. He attributed much
of it to a backlash of
anti-academic sentiment
following the McCarthyism of
the 19505. He said that most of
the top "experts" on the area
were purged from the State
Department, a factor which
undermines the operation of
foreign policy even today.
Following the formal banquet
activities, participants were
encouraged to partake in the
dancing and listening pleasures
provided by the "Standing
Ovations" musical group.

Caucus, the Women's Center will
provide a "drop-in" location for
women in the Harrisburg area
and provide crisis counselling for
women; house the "survival file"

Plans for the center go
farther, to include a library of
books by and about women;
nursery facilities for children's
play groups; consciousness
raising groups based on
individual needs; and a
community bulletin board for
activities and information of
interest to Harrisburg women.
