Building To Be
Ready By July
by Chuck Varesko
The completion date of the new
laboratory classroom building is
scheduled for July 15, 1970. When
completed the building will be a
two story complex. The first floor
will contain two large Biology
Labs, a drafting room, an animal
room, and seven offices for four
teen faculty members. The second
story will be made up of five single
classrooms, one double classroom
and two drafting rooms. A fifteen
space staff parking lot will be
built adjoining the complex and
the total cost will be $828,224.
The architeCts, a local Erie firm
are Gray. Weber & Kern. The
construction is being done by the

essary to subunit a name for the

Yearbooks will be sold again
at the beginning of winter term.
The last day for ordering year
books is February 1. At this time.
at least one-half the price of the
book must be paid ($2.75) or the
order will be cancelled. Money is
by the Vieth Plumbing Company,
and wiring by the Trico Electric
Company. At this time work is
about 25% completed with 33%
of the construction time elapsed.
The building is formally known
as the Library Job, but contains no
library. When Penn State asked
the General State Authority to
construct the building they asked
for a library and classroom com
plex. Due to cutbacks in the State
Budget it became Impossible to
build both. The need for class
room and laboratory facilities
was the more important need
and construction was started on
them. Due to some oversite the
General State Authority forgot to
change the name of the project
and so it remains the Library job.
Friday night, November 14, five
students left Behrend Campus
and headed for the Moratorium
rally in Washington, D. C. They
were John Cartus, Eva Dempsey,
Blair Rudes, Matt Hannon, and
Marsha Gelman. At 9:00 a. m.,
Saturday morning, they joined
the other hundred of thousand
people present in the mall between
the Capital building and the
Washington Monument. T .11 e
crowd was exuberant and eagerly
anticipated the rally ahead. The
enormous size of the crowd and
the signs and banners present
everywhere gave one the impres
sion of the whole world getting
together there for a moral cru
At 10:00 a. m.. the march began.
The people were grouped into
contingents according to their
States, colleges, professions, po
litical leanings, etc. After two and
one half hours, the permit for the
use of Pennsylvania Avenue ran
out, but only approximately
50,000 people had paraded. The
'other hundreds of thousands of
people had to turn around and
head for the Wahington Monu
ment across the mall.
At 1:00 p. m. the rally began.
One of the first performers was
Arlo Guthrie. who led the people
in singing, "This Land is Our
Land." He was followed by such
artists as Richie Havens; Peter,
Paul and Mary; Pete Seger, a
string quartet from the Cleveland
Philharmonic; and the entire New
York cast of "Hair." Also present
were speakers such as Mrs. Mar
tin Luther King, Senator George
McGovern, Senator Charles Good
ell, Dick Gregory,• Dr. Benjamin
spook, and Leonard Bernstein.
Also Timothy Leary, Abbie
Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Dick
Smothers and Earl Scruggs were
there, too. Audience participation
ers led to the two most emotional
during the performances of sing
events of the thy. The first was
when Richie Havens led the crowd
in singing the Beatles' song, "All's
Construction site of GSA Science Wilding addition to the Behr
November 21, 1969
We Are Asking, Is Give Peace a
Chance." The hills on which the
people were seated seemed to
change into oceans of peace sym
bols as hands waved and people
sang. The second event was when
the cast of "Hair" led - everyone
in singing "Let the Sunshine In"
at which time numerous doves
'were released above the crowd.
This brought to a close the sched
uled events of the rally proper.
But it seemed that the Weath
erman, a violent group, had some
thing else 'Warmed. Led by Hoff
man, Bellinger, and Rubin, the
Weathermen and allies marched
to the Department of Justice, re
moved the American flags pre
sent there, and raised the flag
of North Vietnam. Non-violent
groups, hoping to avoid trouble,
lowered the North Vietnamese flag
and replaced the American ones.
Trouble broke out between the
two groups, and the police arriv
ed. They fired DM-1, an arsenic
compound which is similar to tear
gas, into the observers in order to
disperse them. The police then at
tempted to apprehend the violent
group, but failed, disorder con
tinued throughout the night.
Some of the Wethermen were shot
and many were arrested.
Although the Wethermen did
participate in the Moratorium
rally, the violence they caused
afterwards was in no way related
to that rally.
