Key To Apathy—
. .Apathy is a nasty thing. It saps the mind of any
willpower it may have and leaves the body in a state of
suspension. There is no real known cure for apathy.
There is no Apathetics Anonymous either to provide
help for the sufferer. The only possible way to shed the
affliction is a policy of self-help. Perhaps that is the
only exit for Behrend Campus.
If you have any affiliations, with Behrend, you have
to know about the present state of apathy that has
inundated the campus like a tidal wave. No one knows
where it came from, no one knows when it will leave,
and apparently no one seems to care.
Where it came from in this instance is an interesting
question.-The answer to it though is somewhat an
elusive creature . Some would like to hold with the
opinion that it stemmed from the debate over
visitation. Others think that it has stemmed from the
general hassle that everyone has gone through this
Ltsrm.ln either-instance hc-'ever, the source is no*
really all that important. The fact remains that it is
here. Now whatare we going to do about it?
As stated previously, the only known cure is that of
self-help. In a word, that means involvement. That’s a
nasty word too, because with it comes responsibility.
Responsibility takes a little effort. It isn’t something
sent from heaven, and you aren’t bom with respon
sibility. It is developed from experience and un
dertaking projects with responsibility. Why take it
though and put up with the headaches? Mainly
because this whole world which we are trying so
-desperately to repair is composed of the “stuff” and
there is no getting around it.
We have a need for responsibility here too. The
visitation that everyone is still screaming about is
founded on responsibility. That fat paying job that
everyone is working for via a college degree rests its
foundations on responsibility. As a matter of fact,
there isn’t too much in this world that doesn’t have a
few connections with responsibility. That is why you
the student have a responsibility to yourself and to this
campus to make it something because you are what
makes it, and it plays an important part in what you
make of yourself.
.. That is exactly why you should get out and get in
volved, and generate some spirit in Behrend instead of
stiffling it as most have been doing so well.

THE NITTANY CUB
Letters To The
Right now.for all intents and
purposes and all outward ap
pearances, Behrend is dead. Not
in the physical sense of the word,
but in the moral sense. I would
like to think that it is just '3 case
of the mid-winter blahs, but I am
afraid that the problem is a little
bit more extensive than. that. To
put it frankly though, an outsider
would have to believe that
Behrend just doesn’t give a damn
To say that apathy is running
rampant among the student body
is the understatement of the year.
Many organizations are in
desperate need, of responsible
help. The student handbook needs
an editor. The yearbook is
starting to flounder for lack of
help.. And the dear old Nittany

long as your arm, is usually put

Tuesday night. It usually isn’t
finished until two or three in the
morning either. I know. I’m one

I would hate to think that the
hassle over visitation which
everyone had put so much time
and effort into has wrung this
place dry of interest. People
complain that the S.G.A. is doing
nothing. Perhaps if some of the
concerned people around here
would show some of the interest
that everyone professes to have
S.G.A., and a few more of the
organizations would show a little
Exactly whal it will take to get
Behrend moving again, I cannot
say, but if a few more people
don’t get off their dead posteriors
and show a bit more interest in
their surroundings, the situation
won’t get any better. Crying in
your brew at Kelly’s hasn’t- been
known to have any effect either.
The only way to amend the
situation is for people to get in
volved in affairs, instead of
vegetating in their rooms like all
too many have been doing for the
past month or so.

. Why is it that whenever anyone
writes a letter on a controversial
subject, he signs it: “concerned
student,” “name withheld by
request,” “Respectfully..” etc.?
■" I mean/ if somebody expresses
an opinion and doesn’t, want his _
(her) name signed with'it, it is a'
reason to make others believe it
is either invalid, or the person
has no nerve.
I do hope that from now on, no
one will put one of the afore
named signatures to their letter,
or that the editorial policy be
changed to read “All letters must
be signed and names printed,” or
the letter won’t be printed.
It’s time to get something done,
but the “Lone Rangers” using a
“name withheld” as a mask,
must be stamped out. All power
to the people (who sign their
names.) Respectfully, (Name

Come To Question
I’ve noticed that the lamp oil
bums very late in the Cub office,
and I have a question that I might
Why does work linger on into
the wee hours of the evening
when you have so many staff
members to help? Could it be that
there is more to putting the Cub
to press than meets the eye, oris
it that there are more staff
memoers than help?
If this paper is to be for the
students, I feel that it should be
engineered by the students and
not a student. The only answer I
can see is to kick —. A person
can only take so much. It’s the
students fault that no one cares
about the Cub. Over and over you
hear that no one reads the Cub
because it’s not large enough or
interesting enough, but I repeat
that it is the students’ paper and
the students only make it what
they want. The Cub has many
competent staff members and
these members have the ability
to really produce only if they are
willing to spend more time on
making a good paper.
