. Accepting the appointment as Penn State's 13th president, Dr. John W. Oswald has pledged more
responsive action to the expectations of Pennsylvania's young people and its citizens. The new presi
dent will take office July Ist as a result of the Penn State's Board of Trustees unanimous decision
last Dec. 12th. -
"Expectations of society for its
universities are indeed high," said
Dr. Oswald shortly after the re
sults of the election were
"They call for equal access and
opportunity; for education of in
creasing numbers of more highly
trained professionals; for solutions
of • problems nagging our nation;
for broader service to its people;
and for universities themselves to
make - -changes appropriate to our
times. These can be accomplished
only through a community effort
by all segments of an institution
. . . and I dedicate myself to this
great and important task."
Dr. Oswald served as preSident
of the University of Kentucky
from 1963 to 1968. In this five
years there he developed a sound
system of 15 two-year campuses
Only One Lead
In Coed Death
With the November 28 stabbing
death of a 22 year old graduate
student in Pattee Library still un
solved, State Police have placed
2.5. officers- on the case to work
on a full-time basis.
Investigations have a composit

portant witness, if riot an actual
suspect in the slaying. The draw
ing was released by the police
twelve . days after the body of
Betsy Aardsma was found in the
core area of the second level
stacks of the library. _
Lt. William Kimmel stated that
Over 1,500 interviews and rein
terviews have not produced any
information which would point,-to
any A-1 suspect in the hornocide.

From Kentucky Dr. Oswald re
signed to become the executive
vice president of the University of
California, a system about four
times as large as Penn State's.
Holding a doctor of philosophy

the Navy, where he discovered a
world famous disease of cereali;

Behrend Girls Oversexed
Behrend girls are immature, have abnormal sexual drives, and
are potential targets for sex fiends. At least according to officials
rationalizing girls' dorm hours here at Behrend. According to those
in power, Behrend is in a "different situation" than is University
Park. Here, we are not so centrally located-ergo the dorms are father
away from the perverts, crooks, and maniacs than those dorms at
University Park. So, logically, there is a greater chance of harm
coming to the girls here than those at U.P. Right???—No! If you
don't believe' me, ask the coed who was murdered in the Pattee Li
brary down state.
Since the preceding reason is obviously not warrant for the re
strictions, we must therefore assume that Behrend girls are inferior
to those at 11. P... . You can't trust them. They're aggressive! They're
not bad, but they're horny. And, these girls can only satisfy their
desires after Midnight during the week, and 2 am. on weekends—
right? Su-r-r-r-e it is!!! . i.l-I.riRE IS NOTHING CAN DO AT
MIDNIGHT THAT CAN'T DO AT NOON! You can quote me.
As a matter of fact, I'd dig it.
Does it not seem that by not having the same hours as those at
University Park (which are non-existant) we are dissociating our
campus from the Pennsylvania State University.
I am willing to admit that it is not very often that one desires
to stay out past 2 a.m. on weekends, but the principle of he restriction
is galling. If you don't agree, join the ARMY.
It is not the University's, rather Behrend's place to insure that
the girls don't stay out all night and not get their "homework." Whos
paying the tuition? Even if they are on scholarships, the money is
their own. -It was granted for past performance.
