said he also wants to raise levels of

increase competency testing and re

"To have a society that is computer
literate to the nth degree, but is
functionally illiterate, is not much of
an advance," he said.

Thornburgh said education pro
grams rely on interaction with mem
bers of the private sector.
In addition to emphasizing the qual
ity of education in the state, Thorn
burgh said other goals of his
administration are restoring integri
ty in the government, attracting new
business to the state and meeting the
challenge of a changing economy.
Thornburgh said the state's steel
industry was hard hit by the reces
sion and presents several challenges
to the government.
The state must encourage modern
ization of steel plants and increases in
production, he said. The state must
also provide support to displaced
workers to keep families together and
communities alive, he added.
With the state's Democratic presi
dential primary less than one week
away, Thornburgh, a Republican,
said voters should look for each con
tender's vulnerabilities. •
Thornburgh said candidate Walter
F. Mondale may lose votes in the
state because he is associated with
former President Jimmy Carter, who
is still considered an unpopular presi-.
Thornburgh said he expects candi
date Gary Hart will have difficulty
getting votes in the Pittsburgh area
because he voted against a measure
which may have helped the steel
And although the Rev. Jesse Jack
son has "contributed much to the
election process," Thornbugh said
the candidate does not have the sup
port of major black leaders in the
state, such as Philadelphia Mayor
Wilson W. Goode.

The Class of 'B4
keeps story going
by helping Pattee
By PAT COLLIER
Collegian Staff Writer
. Graduating seniors have an op
portunity to improve the quality of
Pattee through this year's class
project, a member of ,the senior
Kevin Murphy (senior-speech
communications) said The Class
of 'B4 Endowed Book Fund was
established with the help of the
Office of University Development.
Its aim is to get graduating seniors
to contribute some or all of their
general deposits toward the pur
chase of books for Pattee, Murphy
"This is an opportunity for se
niors to give something back to
Penn State in return for all that
Penn State's given to them," Mur
The notion of a class gift to the
University is not new, he said. ,
"The past few classes have con
tributed their pledges to im
provement of Stone Valley," he
said. "But we asked the (Universi
ty) Development Office for some
new ideas and the emphasis seems
to be on improving the Universi
ty's academic standing."
Sally Mazer, assistant director
of University development, 'said
that the library seemed a logical
target for an endowment.
"(The Office of Development)
saw the library as one of the
facilities that could most benefit
by a gift," Mazer said. "The li
brary is something that everyone
Mazer said the money raised
will be invested and the interest
will be used to buy books.
The Endowed Book Fund is "an
excellent way for seniors to sup
port the University for years to
coniel she said.
Charles Ness, assistant to the
dean of University libraries, said
an endowed book fund is needed.
Although Penn State's library
budget may seem high, it is inade
quate considering the areas that
need to be covered, Ness said.
Ness cited a 1982 survey of 101
large research libraries nation
wide, which ranked Penn State
59th iri number of volumes.
Murphy said the goal of the
project is to get 1,000 pledges. With
an average gift of $25, (half of a
student's general deposit), the
University could buy 600 to 700
more books annually, he said.
The committee has been trying
to elicit pledges by sending pledge
cards to graduating seniors, as
well as advertising in The Daily
Collegian, Murphy said.

People suffering from tension or
migraine headaches, asthma, and
ulcers may be able to, deal with
these afflictions by expressing
anxieties or working them out
physically with regular aerobic
exercises, a University psychia
trist said yesterday.
Ronald Pies, of the University's
Center for Counseling and Psycho
logical Services, said these prob
lems are psychosomatic
"Psychosomatic means that
there is a physical condition that is
influenced, by the brain," Pies
said. "Asthma, for example, may
be caused by allergens in the air
but it may be set off by emotional
Similarly, migraines consist of
the swelling and constriction of
blood vessels in the head, which in
some people may be caused by
alcohol, he said. Emotional dis

by holding in anger and not ex
pressing emotions, he said, but

usually require medication, he
said tension headaches can be
alleviated by applying a heating

However, Pies said people

should see a physician," he said.

Life-change events such as the
loss of a job, breakup of a mar

death of a spouse are common
causes of stress, Hall said.
"Psychological factors like
stress have been found to affect

"There is some evidence that
people under severe stress may be
more likely to develop these condi

outlined for minorities
By BILL FERRELL
Collegian Staff Writer
Minority students need to be informed about corporate structure and culture,
a 1984 University alumni fellow said yesterday.
"Minority students ought to know something about the corporate culture,"
said Robert Hutchins, executive director of Opportunities Academy of Manage
ment Training in Philadelphia. "There is a certain way the corporate world
expects you to behave."
Hutchins delivered the keynote speech at the Minority Career Awareness Day
in White Building.
The corporate world has been dominated mainly by white male values,
Hutchins said. In the corporate world, much emphasis is placed on dress,
communication, decision-making, mentorship and coaching.
Opportunities are available, Hutchins said, but minority students have to be
prepared because the competition is keen.
• "I think the opportunities today are limitless," he said. "A lot of the barriers
have been removed."
However, the need to prepare individuals and the need to have more
minorities and women in the corporate structure still exist, Hutchins said.
Minority students often have difficulty deciding where to go because of heavy
recruiting, Hutchins said.
Unscrupulous recruiters take advantage of minority students who do not
know what positions to look for, he said. Minorties often are hired•. to fill
positions of visibility but they may not have the opportunity to advance.
Rectuiters need to let people know realistically what opportunities are
available for advancement, Hutchins said.
Although many minorities now are represented in the corporate structure
with Fortune 500 companies, other minority employees can tell of discrimina
tion in the business world, he said.
Minority, workers who have left a job give a different reason for leaving than
the company gives, Hutchins said. This is due in part to their unfamiliarity with
the corporate structure.
Hutchins said minority members interested in establishing their own firm
should find out what services are needed and what minority firms are providing
those services. They should look for those services that are needed but not
provided for by minority firms.
• Also, students must learn how to raise capital, he said. "You must be able to
earn and save at least your share of the equity."
People in financial planning discourage minorities from taking risks because
about 95 percent of businesses owned by a minority member fail, Hutchins said.
