Collegian Science Writer
International philosopher, histori
an and author Ivan Illich arrived at
the University yesterday to begin
teaching two special classes focusing
on literacy and the pursuit of a
Rustum Roy, director of the sci
ence, technology and society depart
ment, said Illich is famous for his
critical evaluation of society and has
received a joint Appointment from
the STS and philosophy departments.
Illich's classes, titled "Alphabetic
Technology: Impact on Western Sci
ence and Society" and "Concepts for
Body History —Seminar," will be
held from Aug. 27 through Oct. 9.
Students can register for the courses
this week, Roy said.
The two credit class on alphabetic
technology, STS 497 F, will be held
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to
5:15 p.m. and will focus on literacy
and its effects on society.
"He will examine the question, 'ls
literacy a good thing?' and may show
how computers promote narrow
thinking and a narrow mode of ex
pression," Roy said.

Booters aim for improvement
By CHRISTINE BORN
Collegian Sports Writer
After an abrupt .end to a 15-6-1
season, the soccer team begins its
1986 campaign on Labor Day
against Navy at 7:15 p.m. at Jef
frey Field. The Lions will be trying
to return to the NCAA playoffs and
better last year's third-round fin
ish. Penn ' State lost 1-0 to
Evansville last December.
Penn State lost four starters to
graduation and is faced with re
placing those key positions. Lost in
the class of 1986 were Larry Miller
(sweeper back), Bob Christina (de
fender), Kevin Jennings (midfield
er) and Dave Dabora (midfielder).
Thomas Greve, a starter at for
ward the past two seasons, is ineli
gible for academic reasons.
The Lions also lost two first-line
substitutes in Torban Ageson and
George Megaloudis to graduation.
While Head Coach Walter Bahr
will be looking to replace those five
in the starting lineup, the other six
positions are basically set. Bahr
has returning starters in Bert Eck
elmeyer (goalkeeper), Niall Harri
son (forward), Paul Moylan
(defender), Steve Potter (mid
field), Troy Snyder (forward) and
David Zartman (midfield). Work
ing with his returning starters,
Bahr said about half of the posi
tions are fairly solid.
"The two central defenders are
fairly well set with Moylan and
Zartman," Bahr said. "At mid
field, we have Potter and Snyder.
None of the positions are set on the
forward line, other than Harri
son's, the one returning forward.
It's also possible that Niall will be
playing a midfield position.
"We lost key people in important
positions and we need to be strong
up the middle. We're fairly safe in
goal, our two central defenders and
our two midfield players, which is
the bulk of our defense, are fairly
well set. Our problem at this point
is finding people who can possibly
score us a goal."
Greve (10 goals), Jennings
(nine) and Dabora (nine) rep
resented three of the team's top
scorers last season.
Assistant coach Barry Gorman
agreed the coaches are a bit con
cerned about finding scorers.
"We have three or four players
capable of scoring goals," Gorman
said, "but if we can create the
chances, then that is half the bat
tle. There is always someone who
comes through and picks up the
Bahr said he is also concerned
The photographic evidence is equally in
conclusive. With players nearly outnumbered
by writers and photographers, Shaffer and
Knizner flanked Paterno wearing their prac
tice blues and their best preseason smiles,
while the sports paparazzi captured the mo
ment for posterity.
First a standing shot, Knizner left, Shaffer
right. Click. Then, in the interest of fairness,
a kneeling shot with Knizner right, Shaffer
left. Flash those smiles. Snap.
Between all the Brady Bunch snapshots,
and the nonstop happytalk spewed by Pater
no, Shaffer and Knizner, the Lions couldn't
have appeared more pleased with their quar
terback situation if the Media Day reporters
had lost their way to Beaver Stadium.
"I think we've got a great quarterback
situation," Paterno said. "We've got two kids
who are both capable of taking this football
team and winning games with it. That's a
great situation for a coach."
All this in spite of the fact that the Lions are
still looking at the same dilemma they faced
in January after their 25-10 loss to Oklahoma
in the Orange Bowl . . . and during the 1985
season . . . and prior to that season. As of
Aug. 14 no progress had been made towards
resolving the Shaffer-Knizner gridlock, at
least none that anyone was willing to talk

with determining the two outside
fullbacks, one or two midfield play
ers and two or three forwards.
"Early in the season we are
concerned with conditioning," he
said. "And at the same time trying
to get some semblance of a lineup

getting a set lineup. One day some
one looks good and the next some

"I don't think either guy is going to jump

"I'm just going to have to sit around with the
(assistant) coaches one night, shoot the bull
. . . and try to make a decision that's the best
one we can and realize that we might not be
making the right one."
For Shaffer, that means having to accept
the fact that he could find himself riding the
bench his senior season after taking the team
to the brink of a national championship in
1985. Though he's lost only one game in 55
starts since seventh grade, Shaffer's 1,366
yards passing, 10 . interceptions, and disas
trous Orange Bowl performance have kept
him from becoming an automatic starter.
Which, for Shaffer, isn't neccessarily a disap

serves anything until you've gone through a

You're not going to get the talent and the skill

McEnroe out of U

AP Tennis Writer
NEW YORK John McEnroe
tamed his temper but not his tennis
yesterday and became a first-round
casualty in the U.S. Open.
"I felt like I was in a reasonably
good frame of mind," McEnroe, play
ing in only his fourth tournament
since a seven-month layoff, said. "I
felt like I gave a pretty good effort
and was trying the best thing that I

beat the ninth-seeded McEnroe 1-6, 6-
1, 6-3, 6-3.
"I just hoped that I would go out
and play well today," Annacone said.
"And if I did, then I'd have a chance.
Fortunately, I got a lot of chances."
`I felt like I gave a
pretty good effort
and was trying the
best thing I could do.'
So McEnroe, who has won the Open
four times, Wimbledon three times
and who was ranked No. 1 until a
year ago, thus became first finalist to
lose in the first round of the next U.S.
Open since Tom Okker of the Nether
lands lost to Britain's Mark Cox in the
first round in 1969. In 1968, Okker lost
to Arthur Ashe in the title match.
Last year, McEnroe fell to Czecho
slovakia's Ivan Lendl in the men's
As for Knizner, his confidence is high, and
it has not mutated into public cockiness,
despite plenty of justification. A senior with
an extra year of eligability left, Knizner has
been declared "The People's Choice" for
quarterback by one preseason magazine.
Another local writer speculated that Knizn
er's mobility gave him the "extra dimen
sion" that Shaffer lacked and that Penn State
needed to become No. 1.
So on the strength of a 90-yard honor-sal
vaging performance in late relief of Shaffer
in the Orange Bowl, Knizer finds himself the
obvious choice by the fans and the writers. If
Paterno weren't such a tough nut to crack he
would have been named starting quarterback
Knizner himself is more cautious when
assessing how he measures up against Shaf

he said. "You can't feel pity for yourself

you can't think you have a jump on it. I think
it's a wide open position.

Davis said Byars, the former Ohio
State All-American, might be ready
for limited play in the opener against
the Washington Redskins.
"There is no medical reason that he
can't play," he said. "We don't want
to throw him in there. He hasn't taken
a pounding in almost a year. We have
to condition his body to take the
trauma of football."
Eagles Coach Buddy Ryan said he
is not going to rush Byars.
"It's up to him," Ryan said. "We'll
see how he's cutting. He's got to see
bodies fly around. It might be three or
four games before he's ready."
Davis said the 6-4, 230-pound Byars
