Everything and anything went
at the rep-in. In the course of the
afternoon, Dr. Oswald covered
such issues as Blacks on campus,
power of student advisory
groups, student involvement in
curriculum changes, student
power in the election of trustees,
the faculty club, the concept of

injunction to quell trouble,
ROTC, military research and
institutional neutrality, and state
“Meetings like this are very
valuable to me,” Dr. Oswald said
to newsmen after the session had
ended. “As time goes on, I hope
there will be more coming from

He said he plans to hold general

every two weeks with the idea of
zeroing in on specific issues.
But under no circumstances, he

• “We purposely scheduled our
first meeting in a small room (the
Hetzel Union Bldg. Reading
Room) so that we could have the
give-and-take and not turn it into
a speech or lecture.”
Dr. Oswald said he plans to
take his student meeting to a
variety of locations during the
course of the year-some in the
Hetzel Union Bldg.*, some in the
residence halls.
In the meantime, student
reaction remained favorable.
“I think he’s pretty sharp and
has a lot of guts,” said Jim
Wiggins, senior in journalism,
from New Providence, N. J.
But perhaps Joe Posh, of
Bethlehem, graduate student in
medieval history, said it best:
“I think he’s got it licked if he
continues to go directly to the
students. Direct communication
is the whole thing.”

Penn State has joined forces
with the Pennsylvania Depart
ment of Public Welfare in the
creation of a special new -center
to help mount new and improved
thrusts in the state’s human
services program.
Established under the terms of
a $400,000 contract, the Center
will be known as the Center for
Human Services Development,
headquartered in the Institute for
the Study of Human Development
in Penn State’s College of Human
“We see the center as a con
tinuing partnership with state
government, acting as a catalyst
in bringing together teams of
interested people both from in
side and outside the University
structure to work on common
problems,” reports Dr. Donald
H. Ford, Dean of the College of
Human Development.
Primarily, the new center will
focus on such issues as policy
making, program planning,
research and eyaluation, man
power training and development,
and public education.
How, for example, can the state
better measure the impact of
community mental health and
retardation services over and
above mere dollars and cents? Is
enough being done to help solve
the economic and social
problems of the aged? What can
be developed to make child-care
centers more than just baby
sitting programs?
These are only a sampling of
the type of questions likely to
come up for examination by the
center in its efforts to develop
new approaches for improving

In retrospect to the elections, it
is commendable to note that 54.5
per cent of the students turned
out to vote. Although this is not
“the best, it is still among the
highest of all the P.S.U. cam
puses. Another notable aspect of
the elections is that only two
freshman were able to win a
representative position. Because
of the increased enrollment of
upperclassmen, in the future it
will become increasingly more
difficult for freshman to be

services in Pennsylvania.
Meanwhile, says Dr. Ford, the
partnership will serve as a two
way street, helping create a
better educational program at
Penn State on the one hand, while
at the same time giving the state
a chance to make use of the
University’s research and
teaching expertise in seeking to
improve human services in
“It’s much like an exchange
program,” explains Dr. Ford.
