William And Joyce
To Perform At Villa
Bill Temme, a young 24-year
drama graduate, and Joyce
Cobb, a beautiful black soul sister
with a degree in social work, met
nearly a year ago in Dayton,
Ohio. Their mutual interest in
music led them to form a most
dramatic contemporary singing
duo. Naturally enough they
called themselves William and
Joyce. When they were heard by
a Ramada Inn executive, he
immediately signed the talented
newcomers to tour the States’
Ramada Inns. And so they came
to Erie.
Disappointed by Penn
sylvania’s drinking laws which
prohibit their music from
reaching the under-21 crowd,
William and Joyce have agreed
to perform in concert for the
college audience. The talented
singers will perform in concert at
the Villa Maria College
Auditorium on Sunday, February
7,1971,. at 8:00 p.m. This evening
of music is the result of a con
versation between William and
Joyce and Mr. Chi tern an, from
our English Department, and his
roommate, Professor John
Young from Villa’s English
Department. After listening to
the young performers “over five
times” at the Ramada Inn, the
profs spoke to Bill and discovered
that both he and Joyce were
anxious to perform for a
collegiate audience. With their
•current contract, William and
Joyce haven’t been able to play
many college dates. They have,
however, managed to astound
concert audiences at the
University of Dayton and at the
University of Pittsburgh at
So on Sunday evening for an
admission price of $l.OO, you are
invited to partake of a share of
the best contemporary music to
come to Erie. When he was asked
to describe their music, Bill
replied that he would have a hard
time defining it. Folk-rock isn’t
precise and neither is folk-pop,
Bill commented. He suggested
that he and Joyce try to get at the
personality of each song in order
to perform each in a different and
distinctive manner. And do they
do that!
As a group William and Joyce
move from enlivened renditions
of contemporary tunes ranging
from the sound of Brazil 66 to
Santana to Chicago to the
Beatles. At her finest in solo
song, Joyce shows the power of
her versatile voice with sen-
sational interpretations of such
classics as “Summertime,”
“Four Women,” and “Fever.”
With a voice like finely mellowed
whiskey, Bill solos with ren
ditions of the Frank Sinatra
favorite. “My Way,” and turns
“Little Green Apples” into an
honest love song. Together
again, William and Joyce can
bring the house apart with their
original “Drums of Passion.”
And it’s into healthy and hard
rock with their combination
“House of the Rising Sim” and
“Wanna Take You Higher.”
Their Villa performance is
being promoted primarily at the
Behrend and Villa campuses in
order to guarantee the Behrend
and Villa students an evening of
somewhat exclusive and ex
cellent musical entertainment.
Join William and Joyce Sunday
evening; you won’t forget them!
Campbell Denounces
C.C. Inter-Visitation

There is little likelihood that

A young man apparently on an LSD “trip” barefoot in sub-zero weather, Monday
morning, smashed his way into the campus home of the director of Behrend Campus and
assaulted him before finally being subdued and taken into police custody.
Director Kochel suffered cuts, bruises, and arm bites, but did not require hospital care.
The youth, identified by State Police at the Lawrence Park barracks as Robert Laine

Director Kochel gave this
account of the 20-minute
“It was 5:45 a.m. when I
was awakened by some sort
of a commotion going on
outside. I looked out the
bedroom window and saw
three men and a woman. One
of the men was rather

juniors - and seniors who lend
maturity and stability to the
residence halls.”
Campbell pointed to a study of
1,300 Commonwealth Campus
students conducted last winter
term which showed over 80 per
cent were first or second term
freshmen, and more than 75 per
cent were 18 or younger.
“We don’t have the facilities or
staffs at these campuses to
properly maintain security under
the 24-hour visitation,” Campbell
indicated. “But mainly we’re
concerned with the age of the
students and the fact that they’re
facing a difficult academic and
social adjustments at the time
they’re at these campuses.”
I think it would be a mistake to
extend 24-hour visitation at this
time,” he added.
Though the campuses are not
attempting full visitation
programs, various plans are
being discussed and tested now,
Campbell said. “They’re dipping
their toes into the water to find
out what will work and what
won’t work.”
For example, Beaver Campus
now has visitation weekend af
ternoons and evenings, he said.

While this was going on,
Mrs. Kochel ran upstairs to
fetch a .22 caliber rifle. The
weapon was unloaded and its
bolt had been removed.
She ran back down and
gave the gun to Kochel.
The youth in the kitchen,
unable to find a knife, settled
for a plastic spatula.
“He had it in his hand and
was walking toward me,”
said Kochel, “He began
shouting incoherently. ’ ’
Kochel, holding the rifle by
its barrell, took a swing at the
youth but missed. The in
vader grabbed the rifle and
wrestled with Kochel briefly.
“He bit me in the arm,”
recalled Kochel, “and I let go
of the gun. Then he took a
swing at me with it. ”
But that swing missed its
mark too and the rifle
crashed into the wall,
breaking off the stock.
Kochel then asked the
youth if he would accompany
him outside and the youth
The two went out and down
the campus road, with the
youth still holding onto the
rifle barrel.
“My main concern was to
get him out of the house and
away from my wife and
children,” Kochel said.
Just about that time, a
truck delivering baked goods
to the campus came by and
Kochel’s son hailed it to stop.
‘‘This apparently
distracted the youth long
enough for me to grab the
barrel back from him. We
began to scuffle and fight in
the snow and he ripped the
shirt off my back. It was
really getting cold.”
Next along the campus
road came a snow plow being

college maintenance worker.

them that “for some

Dorms At
State Park
Contingent on whether enough
students want it or not. three
residence halls at Penn State will
be converted to no-visitation
status next fall.
The proposed change comes as
the result of a student poll taken
during the second week of this
term in which 220 co-eds and 139
males of some 10,000 students
participating indicated they
would prefer to live in non
visitation dorms.
If the change comes about, the
residence halls affected would be
Thompson Hall which is now a
male undergraduate dorm but
which will be changed to a female
dorm next fall; Bigler Hall,
which is a female residence hall;
and Hastings Hall, which is now a
female dorm, but which is being
changed to a male dorm.
“We want to give the small
minority of students who prefer
living in residence halls with a
no-visitation rule the chance to do
so,” explains Dr. Charles Spence,
assistant dean for student affairs
in charge of residence hall living.
“Under no circumstances will
any student who does not wish to
live in one of the proposed new
no-visitation dorms be forced to
do so,” Dr. Spence says. “It’s all
Officials of the Office of
Student Affairs also anticipate
that a number of incoming fresh
men in the fall term will prefer to
