THE FIRST BLACK member of the
University's Board of Trustees will
assume his position July 1.
When Jesse Arnelle turned down the
Nittany Lion statue at the Quarterback
Club dinner in May 1968 he had many in
teresting things' to say about the racial im
balance at this University.
"There has never been a black dean of
a University faculty. There has never been
a black vice president of the University in
any capacity. There is no known black
Penn State graduate appointed, assigned
or consulted at the policy-making level of
the University. Should the University's
president call his immediate staff in con
ference there wouldn't be a black face in
the room. When the Board of Trustees
meet their deliberations have never been
enriched by the contribution of a black
trustee'member," Arnelle said.
FINALLY, IT HAS happened. The
Board of Trustees meetings will now be
enriched by the contribution of a black
Jesse Arnelle says that his election is
an indication that "many Penn State
graduates (would like) to see changes

made at the University." This obviously is
true since Arnelle and Mrs. Helen D. Wise
of State College were elected even though
there were two" incumbent trusteesrun
ning for re-election.
The incumbents, with a total. of 27
years between them on the board and one
a member of the all-powerful executive
committee of the trustees, had their
chance to bring about the changes needed
to make this University what it should be.
They failed—as have the other staunch,
Republican, conservative, anti-progressive
members of the current Board of Trustees.
THESE TRUSTEES have been
unresponsive t o t he q u i e t, orderly,
responsible calls for change voiced by
many of the students and faculty mem
bers at this University.
Instead, they have responded only to
obscenities printed in the Water Tunnel or
The Collegian only to the noisy, disorder
ly, minority protests on campus. It is un
fortunate that they cannot ignore these
minorities and listen, instead, to the
responsible voices asking for change. But
they haven't—they've simply hardened
their staunch, Republican, conservative,

anti-progressive viewpoints and ignored
all the voices asking for change.
Now there is hope that someone on
the Board will listen and be responsive to
those quiet, orderly voices. However, with
the existing structure of the Board, this
hope is not as bright as it might otherwise
THE BOARD OF Trustees is broken
up into nine standing committees which
parallel the structure of the University
Administration. There is an executive
committee which has the final say on all
matters and makes the final decisions on
University policy submitted by the stand
This committee meets about seven
times 'a year and the full complement of
trustees meets only twice a year. When
the full Board meets in January, they
elect officers and members of the ex
ecutive committee. The standing com
mittees' members are appointed by the
President• of the Board.
One Of this month's losers was on the
executive committee and his spot will not
be filled until the January meeting of the
In the meantime there is a way for
the new members to make their voices
heard. Meetings of the executive com
mittee are open to all members of the•
Board of Trustees. Trustees, who are" not
'members- of the committee do not have. a
committee vote—only elected, " ; members
do. But, Jesse Arnelle and Mrs. Wise may
express their opinions and make `their
views known to the members of the ex
ecutive committee at its every meeting.

IT IS UNFORTUNATE that Arnelle
cannot be appointed to the powerful com
time. Hopefully, though, the
president of the board will appoint both
Arnelle and Mrs. Wise to some of the
standing committees where their talents
will be most useful.
