What Price Security?
With the growing student body, the expansion of
Behrend to a four-year institution, and the growth of
Behrend in general, it has become more and more
necessary to become involved in a program of
“Campus security”. But how -much “security” is
necessary for only twelve-hundred students? The
growth of our ‘‘security system” seems to be far
exceeding that of the other essential programs at
Behrend began the year with a rented police force,
as it had in previous years. But the system seemed
archaic and useless, and therefore it was abandoned
in favor of a one-man Pinkerton security force. The
direction of the initial step toward a better program
seemed quite favorable. However, the program
continued progress and we have now found ourselves
with what appears to be an overly-abundant security
force headed by a security chief with countless other
security officers, and student marshalls.
The initial ideas for an improved security force
were indeed noble, however the direction and extent of
the steps taken have exceeded that which is necessary
for an adequate program. The security program
seems to have been given top priority over most other
essential programs. Extensive funds have been spent
for equipment, salaries, and maintainance of the
programs, while other student, faculty, and ad
ministrative needs suffer from lack of funds.
Should our education suffer because of the mixed
priorities of our administration? If more funds were
allocated for such things as academic planning and
student organizations, there would be far less need for
such an extensive security force.
Educational needs should always take precedence
over the establishment of an untested service
bureaucracy, whose need seems questionable.
Shouldn’t the security needs of the Behrend Campus
be seriously reconsidered by the administration? We
of the Cub feel that this is definitely the case.

There is a very worthwhile
effort in progress now without
much student support. Things
don’t just happen—you’ve got to
make them happen. We’re trying
to get a campus radio station on
the air as a service and a means
of entertainment for Behrend.
Radio Behrend has innumberable
possibilities. It would be the
campus’s only up-to-the-minute
means of communication. Club
information, campus happenings
(which have been frequent this
term), and sports events could be
broadcasted to the student body.
A campus radio station is
something that is greatly needed
at Behrend but we need YOUR
help. Without it, Radio Behrend
will fall through as so many other
ventures here have. If you want it
please donate. At the moment, we
need money to buy equipment.
Also, anyone who has any useful *
contacts which may be able to
help us out please contact any
club member or Mrs. Dawson in
North Cottage. We need your help

I have noticed that a horrible
state of apathy has overtaken the
student body in the last week. I
can understand this state, due to
the many frustrating battles with
administration over the past
month. But this is just what the
administration wants, a beaten
student body who doesn’t give a
damn about anything! So what do
we do? Well, we can’t do anything

from the hospital and is at home recuperating. He will not meet his

by his doctor. Best of luck, Mike!
