Delta Upsilon's Firgt Fraternity Fling held
yesterday afternoon at 229 Locust Lane, ended
prematurely when State College Police cited the
fraternity for disorderly conduct.
Cpl. Richard Garris said police first warned the
fraternity at 12:33 p.m. and asked that the noise be
decreased. Within the next two hours, Garris said, the
police received more than 25'complaints about the
noise and responded at 2:55 p.m. to issue the citation.
The citation carries with it a fine of up to $3OO and a
fraternity representative will have to appear before

The event, sponsored by the Miller Brewing
Company and WQWK radio, was to have included three
local bands and was scheduled from noon until 5
yesterday. Because of the citation, however, only the
band Azgard was able to play in its entirety. Delta
Upsilon social chairman Henry Carl and Nittany-
Beverage representative Chris Zarus, who handles
Miller-sponsored events, estimated that Miller will lose
about $l,OOO because of the the event's premature

The fraternity had secured an activities permit from
the State College borough to conduct the event, but the
permit does not include a noise variance. Carl said,
however, he was "really disappointed" about the
citation, and the way police handled the situation.
"We had everything organized and the crowd was so
passive. Students really make this town and they turn
around and do something like this," he said. Carl added
that, State College Mayor Arnold Addison was
contacted about the matter, but that he said he was
unable to help. Addison was unavailable for comment.
Undergraduate Student Government President Emil
Parvensky, who was present when police arrived, said
"We even asked if we could get a noise meter out here"
to determine if the music was exceeding the 55 decibel
limit for residential areas. The police refused,
according to Parvensky. "In other words, that option
wasn't available to us," he said.
Zarus also expressed his dissatisfaction with the
police action: "If they would have said 'You can have it
this loud,' that would have been fine. But they didn't."

told supporters, "I will guarantee" that the
Three Mile Island nuclear power plant
would remain shut if he is elected president.
Referring to the Metropolitan Edison Co.,
which operated TMI at the time of the
March 1979 accident, he asked, "What
strange logic . . . justifies giving them a
license to run a nuclear power plant when a
meltdown could kill thousands of people?"
In his prepared remarks, Mondale
recalled sitting in the White House as vice
president when the TMI accident occurred.
He said it was a "desperate, scary moment,
and thank God it worked out without people
being subjected to a meltdown."
He charged that Hart has taken "about
three different positions" on whether the ,
plant should be reopened.
Hart, meanwhile, was in Western
Pennsylvania, trying to nibble at Mondale's
labor support. He told unemployed
members of each sorority drank a
beer in succession. The winners of
the canoe races were: first place,

PSU student charged
with theft of 2 exams
By MIKE KINNEY .
Collegian Staff Writer
A University student has been
arrested by University Police
Services and charged with theft of
trade secrets, theft by unlawful
taking or disposition and receiving
The charges involve the alleged
theft of two electrical engineering
exams from the University and
the subsequent sale of those .
exams, a police spokesman said.
David E. Schmidt (senior
nuclear engineering), 707 Stuart
Hall, was arrested April 5 as a
result of an investigation which is
continuing, University Police
officer Delmar Woodring said.
He also was charged with
possessing instruments of crime
(lock picks); possession, sale,
distribution, manufacture or
advertisement of intercepting
devices (wire tapping equipment).
In addition, he was charged with
unlawful possession of a controlled
substance (marijuana); and
possession of a controlled
substance with intent to
manufacture or deliver.
According to police, the items
were found during a search of
Schmidt's room at Stuart Hall.
"The charges were filed by the
University Police as per state
steelworkers that he would provide
government-guardnteed loans to modernize
aging plants and factories
"But every cent of those loans would have
to be put into modernizing equipment and
training people," he said.
As part of the plan, he added, workers
would have "guaranteed jobs" if they
participated with managers in negotiations
for these loans and conditioned their wage
increases on productivity increases.
Throughout the campaign, Mondale has
been highlighting Hart's votes against the
government-guaranteed loans for Chrysler
Appearing on CBS-TV's "Face the
Nation," Hart said the Chrysler bailout was
"a partial success. A lot of people lost their
jobs under that reorganization."
He said the difference between his
proposals and those of Mondale was that,

Hart charged that Mondale, as vice
president, already had four years to try to
get "the economy of Pennsylvania and this
country back on its feet and it didn't work."
He pledged to reduce unemployment by
implementing a policy to rebuild "this
country's basic facilities through the
private sector." Contracts would require
companies to hire a fixed percentage of the
unemployed, he said.
After big losses in the New York primary
and Wisconsin caucuses last week, Hart
needs a victory in Pennsylvania to regain
the momentum he had after a string of
victories in New England.
The Colorado senator emerged as the
victor from Wisconsin's non-binding
presidential• primary Tuesday, but no
delegates were at stake. At the caucuses,
Mondale oucpolled him by better than 2-to-1
and won 42 delegates to 23 for Hart.
