Many _Behrend students are - un
aware of the S.G.A. and their work.
Thus, these students have no way of
knowing what matters - the S.G.A. has
under consideration, what issues are
being acted upon, or how S.G.A. has

Therefore, we propose-that the 'S.G.A.

Kochel takes round one but
ghosts of the past may haunt him
at a later date.
It appears at this time that
both the (faculty and students are
letting the "Behrend 3" rest in
peace. If the faculty can't find it
in themselves to support the prin

can't be expected to fight their
Ideas-thrown around over past
weeks have included students
having a voice in the hiring and
firing of faculty members. Faculty
members don't seem to support
this idea. and it Is now apparent
why. A few of the more apathetic

The current O.S.G.A. (Organization

contains a clause which gives the ad

There is a proposal before O.S.G.A. to

extend visitation hours at Behrend.

The issue may now die and the
reasons may not be given until
June but if the administration is
guilty of screwing anybody then
they will pay.
Student support appears to grow

don't come fast, they are coming.
The meeting held Thursday, 7th

organization sort of thing. This
meeting was a result of Wednes

Committees were set up and
whether they will be active or not

Number Two Favored
In Solution Referendum
Arising from the situation
which exists concerning the Uni
ted States involvement in Cam
bodia, the situation which reach
ed a boiling point in the Kent
State incident, and from the en
volvement of thousands of stu
dents last Saturday in Washing
ton, D.C., students of the Univer
sity have become concerned.
As a, ifollow-up to the May 6
University-wide "day of discus
sion," students have exhibited a
desire to continue and possibly
step-up talks and inspire partici-,
pation in the current situation
which exists not only in our na
tion but on •the college campuses
and Penn State in particular.
Flowing out of this desire for
involvement a "Solution Referen
dum" was developed and proposed.
This proposal contained - three
basic solutions to be decided: (1)
that the 'University continue its
normal day-to-day operations;
(2) that classes be devoted dur
ing the eighth, ninth, and tenth
weeks of this term to discussion
of the current situation and that
colloquies, .workshops, and semi
nars be established and that some

This referendum, when taken to

with enthusiastic response. At the

The results of the balloting et
