Below is the OCR text representation for this newspapers page. It is also available as plain text as well as XML.

Some people have been
asking, “Where’s the McDonald’s
Free Coupon?” The answer to
which is, it’s down at
McDonald’s waiting for someone
to pick it up.
Why hasn’t anyone gone to
get it?
Well, as you know, the
Reader is short staffed and as a
result it is not the paper it
should be. We have very few ads
in our paper and would like a lot
more. But we have no one
willing to go out and get these
ads. As editors and students we
do not have the time to take on
this job too. The “one” student
who has been responsible for
this in the past, is now just as
busy as the editors. (We like to
eat too.)
What we need is a few
conscientious students,
(graduate and/or
under-graduate) to go out to
individual stores in the area,
(Middletown, Highspire, and
East Mall to solicit ads.
It was a weekly, now a
bi-monthly job that employs the
use of a car and a few hours of
your spare time. The Reader will
pay your expenses, (10 cents a
mile) and asks only for your
time and selling ability.
If you’re interested, then stop
by our office. We’re not only
looking for the McDonald’s ad,
but other ads that will help cut
the cost of running a school
newspaper. Thank You.

Things to Do
John Bradford Langdon
Just a few days ago, A 1
Houser, from Church Hall asked
me where he could rent a
bicycle. I informed him that
several bicycles were available in
the Recreation/Athletic
Building, over by the
football-soccer field.
“No kidding? Boy, that’s
great! No money, just an ID card
(from Capitol).”
“That’s right.”
So, I figured that you, the
Capitol Campus Public, might
want to know what other
free-rental items are available at
the Rec Building. On Wednesday
afternoon, Bud Smitlee (Athletic
Director) and Mrs. Arehart
helped me compose the
following list of items, which
only require a person’s ID card
and his or her own signature.
When it’s too cold this fall
and winter to engage in outdoor
sports activities, you should
consider in-door exercise on the
physical-fitness equipment at the
Rec/Ath Building.
There are three main workout
rooms. One is principally used
for body building, and a second
room for physical conditioning.
The third room, which is the
largest, contains plenty of room
for exercising practicing falls or
In addition, locker rooms and
showers (for men and women)
are conveniently located
between the workout rooms
along the hallway. Soap and
towels are provided for use
WITHIN the building.
A list of the physical exercise
and/or conditioning equipment,
which is available for your use, is
Rowing machines -2; Floor
and Chest pulley weights -3;
Frictional Wrist Roll -1;
Shoulder Wheel -1; Wrestling
Wheel - 1 (in need of repair);
Chinning Bars -2; Table Tennis
Equipment - table, paddles, balls
and net; Stall bars; Mini-Gym -
incorporates an abdominal board
and a pair of Floor - Chest
Universal Gym - an extremely
versatile weight machine. Leg
machine and adjustable weights;
Dartboard; Heavy and
Light-weight punching bags
(with gloves for each).
Tennis rackets and balls;
Badminton rackets and birdies;
Golf Clubs no balls;
Basketballs; softballs and bats;
Footballs; Quoits (rubber);
Volleyballs; Horseshoe Set
(rubber); Soccer Balls; Archery
Equipment and Bicycles - men
and women’s.

available, but may only be used
when prescribed by a doctor.

Early Saturday Morning,
October 13, two Capitol Campus
students boarded a plane for the
Institute of Electrical and
Electronic Engineers Region 2
Convention for counselors and
chairmen. The plane was heading
for Pittsburgh, Penna. Our
representatives were Jim Yorgey
and Earl Showalter, the
Chairman and Treasurer of our
local lEEE branch.
Mr. Michael M. Vartanian,
Region 2 Student Activities
Chairman, opened the meeting
to discuss the purpose of the
convention. The main purpose
was to instruct counselors and
chairmen on how to better
govern their respective students
branches of the lEEE.
The group was then divided,
and Mr. Vartanian led the
counselors in the discussion of
their responsibilities.
Mr. Robert Asdel,
Coordinator of Student
Activities, and Mr. James Long,
member of the Student Policy
and Planning Committee led the
chairman in their discussions of
branch activities, finances and
career development. The
enthuastic exchange of
information was helpful to all 30
or more student branches that
were represented.
At 3:00 p.m. the counselors
and chairmen reunited to further
discuss their ideas.
R eturning to Harrisburg,
Yorgey and Showalter held
greater expectations and ideals
for our local branch of lEEE this

Delta Tau Kappa is once

The Graduate School Seminar

(10:50 p.m. til noon) and again
on November 15, 1973 during
the 4th period (12:15 p.m. til

schedule for the program is as
follows: Marian Krieger and Ed
Beck will speak on the
procedures to follow and how to
apply to a graduate school; Peg
O’Hara will talk about how to
obtain financial aid; and Dr.
James McAree will discuss
graduate exams and other related
tests important in gaining
admission to a graduate school.
A special note of thanks goes out
to Elaine Parker, DTK
Vice-President of Activities, for
her work in co-ordinating this
fine program.
Again, all students interested

the seminar-since this program
is just for you! The seminar is
open to all students and faculty
members interested in learning

procedures to graduate schools.

very useful program, and thanks

Blood Bank
The X.G.I. fraternity will be
sponsoring a blood drive
Thursday, November 15. The
blood mobile will be located in
the front of the school from 9-5.
The X.G.I. fraternity hopes
to have at least two blood drives
this school year. All blood
donated goes into the X.G.I.
account which in turn is
available to any student, faculty
member, or employee of the
Capitol Campus, and their
immediate family.
Often times people do not
realize how costly it can be to
have a blood transfusion.
Anyone who is not covered by a
blood bank, and who needs
blood must either replace two
pints for every pint used or pay
approximately $5O a pint.
This service is performed by
the X.G.l.’s free of charge. The
only thing we ask is that those
who are able to give blood
As an added incentive to give
blood on the 15th, there will be
a 50 cent reduction on the
admission price of the Keggar on
November 16, for all those
donating blood.
Everyone’s cooperation will
be greatly appreciated.
