Safely Committee Crosses Rubicon
By PAT NARDUCCI
The safety conditions on the Behrend Campus afford an undeniable
opportunity for improvement.
The Safety Committee, composed of Mr. Werner, chairman, Mr.
Baumer, and Mr. Campbell, was formed to prevent and eliminate acci
dents. But, effective results cannot be obtained without the cooperation
of eac hstudent. He has the opportunity to exert his influence, by ex
ample, on his fellow collegians, and the importance of this opportunity
cannot be minimized. Luck has been relied upon too often.
The Committee and Administration have contributed their efforts
wholeheartedly. Their inspection and correction of hazards and general
good housekeeping has come to the favorable attention of the Depart
ment of Security on the Main Campus, which sends inspectors to sur
vey the accident situation at the Commonwealth Campuses. •
Most pressing of the pitfalls is fires. Safety for the Dormitory stu
dents rests heavily on the Administration. It is because of their desire
to insulate them from the disastrous spark that the wiring has been
improved. Fire drills have been proposed and the need for quick
evacuation, not the safety of precious trinkets and souvenirs, has been
Smoking, again, is a great harassment to authorities, not because
of lung cancer which would lead to a high student drop-out rate, but
because the tinder-box construction of campus buildings is not conducive
to flirtation with cigarette flames.
Suggestions from the students would be welcomed and appreciated.
The challenge has been extended. The Committee has been doing its
part. Have you?

sible raise in tuition may depend,
to a high degree, on whether the
University will receive the amount
for which they ask. Within the past
years, our country has witnessed a
tremendous increase in the cost of
living, and the University is no ex
ception. If this money is not re

tuition, affecting you and your
parents, to meet the ever-growing
needs of the school.
You are probably asking by now
what you can do to remedy the
situation. The means are simple. If
you will sit down and write a letter
to your congressman or senator
stressing the University's needs
and how they affect you, you have
a good chance of seeing results. It
