The Reader spotlights the
innovative method of cleaning
up the halls. The clutter of
printed signs is an eyesore in the
college community. You can’t
see -the forest for the trees.
Often times, students can read a
bulletin board and not be at all
enlightened to the activities on
One finds that he can read
several bulletin boards and gain
conflicting and useless
knowledge. There are several
areas that list or attempt to list
the campus activities and they
give all a half-truth.
One example is the time
listed for the past Saturday’s
soccer match. The C.C. Calendar
of Events printed the time for
2:00 in the afternoon. The
Activities calendar and the Hot
Line had it printed as 8:00 in
the evening.
The bulletin board in the hall
if the main stair case is the major
area of complaint. Material was
hanging that had been dated for
months. The i layers of paper
manifested the thoughtless
hanging of signs. No one cared
what was underneath as long as
their sign was on top.
The Reader congratulates the
mysterious marauder for doing
everyone a favor - cleaning up
the school. The Reader fears
that his work was in vain and has
the following suggestions.
First, a coherent system of
gathering the information on
ALL activities should be
delegated to one office. The
Student Activities Office is the
logical choice. This information
should be posted in one area.
This listing should be completed
and not a half-truth.
Secondly, the printed signs
announcing club meetings
should not be used. The signs are
ugly to begin with and are
ineffective. The clubs should
depend on the single activity
calendar and work with the
publicity co-ordinators if they
need additional publicity.
Thirdly, the suggested area
for posting the information is
the canvass boards by the front
doors. They are easily accessible
to the student body and a visitor
can find what is going on in the
school without having to read
every scrap of paper on the walls
of the building.
Lastly, there is a paper
shortage. The massive practice of
wasting paper at Capitol is
abominable. It should be
stopped. The Reader is taking
steps itself to cut down on
newsprint. We hope the
mysterious marauder has taught
the school a lesson. Maybe we
can work together to keep the
clutter out of the halls and to
get a more efficient method of
announcing campus happenings.

As many of you may know
deferred tuition this fall was a
little more painful than it had
been in the past. The reason
being, the tight budget situation
at University Park.
This winter term it will get
worse, (according to John
Taylor, the finance officer). So
you should be prepared in that
you may not be able to defer
tuition at ALL. Watch for all
publications concerning tuition
payments in the near future. It
could have an adverse effect on

Marijuana Smokers
The House of Delegates of
the American Bar Association by
a substantial majority vote (122
to 70) called today for an end to
criminal penalties for marijuana
The adopted resolution reads
of the tendency to punish those
who merely experiment with the
use of small quanities of
marijuana and to apply too
serious penalties to them, rather
than to concentrate on detecting
and punishing sellers of the drug,
there should be no criminal laws
punishing the simple possession
of marijuna by users.
The House of Delegates also
adopted a resolution favoring
the month preceding the event.

The voting rules in this
election allow 2 votes to be cast
by each student. (Both Junior
and Seniors may vote as
provided for in Article XII
Section 3 of the SGA
Constitution.) One of the votes
must be cast for a candidate in
the voters respective Department
while the second may be used at
the voters discression. The
Junior and Seniors voting will
also have a vote to cast for or
against proposed Constitutional
revisions. It should be pointed
out that the proposed revisions,
if approved by a sufficient
number of the student body,
will clear up a good number of
ambiguities in the present
Constitution. I urge all students
to approve the revisions in the
Constitution and to cast their
vote for ' their Senatorial
candidate. A vote, in a broad
sense, is a statement that you
give a damn about this
community. Do you?
