Probably the most effective
method of comprehansion and
learning is actual experience.
The first Urban Term seminar on
Community Development
provided that atmosphere
through local planning
For a large part, the seminar
reinforced many terms used in
community power and public
policy courses, nonetheless, to
have those terms explained in
their actual everyday use, added
a touch of enlightenment.
The general theme of the
seminar evolved around the
delicate matter of decision
making. Daniel Rodgers,
Director of Harrisburg
Community Development,
presented the governmental
structure of the Hsrrisburg
community and placed much
emphasis on the importance of
the Master Plan. Dialogue
between seminar participants
often related to the Master Plan.
Dialogue between seminar
participants often related to the
Master Plan concept and the
importance of planning.
In addition, Mr. Rodgers
answered many questions
pertaining to the composition of
the Harrisburg City Council,

transportation, and the
Harrisburg schools. Also present
were Wilmer Faust, Acting City
Planner, and Dorsey Howard,

pertaining to the housing
situation of Harrisbueg,
rehabilitation and relocation.
The full Importance of such a
seminar h presented in the
dialogue exchange following the
initial and basic information.
Questions varied to a great
degree but that represented the
many interests of the group.
Consequently, everyone had
much information for their
notes and another aspect of
information to refer to or
perhaps explore and expand on
at a later date.

striving to improve Harrisburg as
a community, Joe is a senior in
the Social Science Program here
and was recently honored by the
Alumni Association of
Harrisburg Area Community
College. Carlos and Ray are
involved in service projects in
the area in addition to holding
other jobs and pursuing their
studies. The program, which is
set up to relate to subjects
involving the black community,
will be aired again this Sunday at
In past programs, many
notables in the area have been

gentlemen. including: Dick
Davis, Warden of Dauphin
County Prison; Mr. Wendell
Banks, candidate for Harrisburg
city council; Capitol's Evon

One show centered on urban
housing, and a conclusion drawn
thought it best for blacks to
move into a predominately black
area in order to develop group
solidarity and political and
economic power. However, it
was stressed that this method is
not the only way to develop
such group power.
When Wendell Banks was on
the program, he said that forced
busing in Harrisburg has
achieved intregation but has not
raised the quality of education.
He was concerned with "the
stigma attached to an inferior
school system" and thought it
indicative of a breakdown in
community involvement and a
lackadaisical PTA. Banks said
education is the keystone and
teachers are, or should be, very
influential regarding young
people. Carlos said teachers must
accept a dual role of teacher and
disciplinarian, "it is what society
"The Galaxies" Carlisle High
School's 19 piece stage band will
be appearing at Capitol Campus
on Thursday, May 10, 1973 at
3:00 p.m. in the auditorium.
"The Galaxies" have played a
major role of leadership in the
development of stage bands in
the schools in the central
Pennsylvania area. During the
last ten years, the band has
contributed greatly to the
preservation of an important
American musical heritage, - the
dynamic, inventive sound of the
Big Band.
In addition to being in
demand for various civic and
professional appearances, "The
Galaxies" have won numerous
First Prizes in Stage Band
Competitions throughout
Pennsylvania. In 1970, the group
received high acclaim during its
highly successful concert tour of
ten European countries.
Recently the band has received
enthusiastic response for its
performances presented at

three children in Harrisburg
schools, said many teachers "are
not aware of the problems in the
area. How can they then be
effective? It is the duty of the
parents to alert them to the
Ray cited an example to back
up his claim. "One of my
children had an art class and the
teacher assigned the students the
project of coloring a playground
scene. My child drew nearly
everything in black and the
teacher was concerned because
`playgrounds are green.' I had to
go to school and explain to her
that in the city the playgrounds
are asphalt and tar, which are
obviously black."
Evon Golphin, President of
the campus Black Student
Union, was on a recent program,
explaining the Black Arts
Festival which was staged last
month. One of the plays
presented during the festival was
"Mike's Other Love", which was
written by a student at the
Harrisburg Independent
Academy. Joe said the author
had quite a talent, writting
about a child's reaction to her
harsh environment.
Banks, who was on the show
last month, talked about his
School of Africa for
pre-schoolers. It is conducted
much as a daycare center with
emphasis on childhood
development. Swahili to also
taught at the school.
Another interesting program
contrasted contemporary and
traditional gospel. Joe said the
traditional mode stressed
"Jesus" while modern versions
emphasize love between
individuals. A group from
Howard University in
Washington, D.C. highlighted
that program.
On April 29, the show was
conducted with the Urban Black
