The new anti-cruising ordinance in
State College is one of several ordi
nances now taking effect or 'under
consideration in municipalities
The State College ordinance,
adopted June 2, prohibits people from
driving around the block three or
more times in one hour or more' than
five times in three hours on the down

Williamsport, Chambersburg, Hazle

During times of heavy congestion,
the new or proposed ordinances
would make it illegal to pass certain
checkpoints more than a specified

number of times. Violations are pun

The ordinances address area resi

Carlisle has yet to invoke its new
cruising ordinance. It became effec

ager Allen L. Loomis said.
"The publicity on the ordinance
seems to have dissuaded many peo

The borough has also closed a mu

cruisers, Loomis added.
Carlisle, in addition to normal com

Annapolis, Md., youths who were
visiting the Hazleton area, Petrilla
said. The accident was allegedly
caused by an intoxicated driver who
had been arrested three previous
time for driving under the influence
of alcohol and underage drinking.
Under the Hazleton ordinance
cruising would be banned during the
hours of 11 p.m. to 2 a.m., the hours
when bars and other liquor-serving
inhabitants along the route are at
their peak business hours, he said.
The ordinance was proposed main
ly "for the protection of the youth who
cruise downtown, especially when the
bars are going full bloom," Petrilla
said. "We do not intend (in proposing
the ordinance) to interfere with
young people's rights.
"The important thing is to cut down
on the potential danger (from drunk

sure kids have some place to go,"

Leadership, role of colleges

By CAROLYN SORISIO
Collegian Staff Writer
What is the role of the University today and how can its
leaders most effectively guide it? These questions, along
with dozens more, were debated at the 35th annual
Encampment brings together administrators, faculty
members and. student leaders for two days of informal
discussion and social interaction at the Stone Valley Civil
The theme of the encampment was "Penn State Our
Past, Our Present, Our Potential" and the discussion
focused on the social responsibility of the University,
changing university students, dimensions of academic
excellence and effective student leadership.
At the opening address, Kathryn Moore, director at the
Center for the Study of Higher Education, said that now is
a crucial time for the encampment because it encourages
• "Ideas and actions are starting to fizz again .. . we
need your skills, your thoughts and your commitment to
Penn State," Moore told the group.
During a discussion called "Student Life and Its Piece
of the Pie," faculty members expressed their concern
over the increasing numbers of liability suits and how
they affect student activities.
Gayle Beyers, assistant director of student organiza
tions and program development, said she has already had
some sorority and fraternity faculty advisers resign since
they thought it was "too risky" because of liability suits.
"This is one of those areas where students are going to

to park and socialize in the evenings.
"It's so we know, parents know and
everyone knows that they're parked
and not driving around," he said.

During his keynote address, Temple University Presi
dent Peter Liacouras challenged the crowd to consider
the social responsibilities of making higher education
accessible to everyone, without discrimination, in order
to make the "American Dream" a possibility for all.
Liacouras defended today's college student and said, "I
don't understand why it is fashionable to think that
students are more vocational and less idealistically
In the 19605, he explained, students thought they could
make changes by entering fields such as law and by
Today, students attempt to shape their world by study

"Higher education is the means for social mobility tc
realize the American dream and as soon as we lose that
mission, we are all done for."
He said that although Temple was one of the first
universities to divest its money from South Africa,
divestment should not be used as a yardstick to measure
the moral character of a university.
Instead, he pointed towards' effective long-term affir
mative action as showing a university's true commitment
to social change.
He said the University is doing well in recruiting
minorities, considering Penn State's location. He compli
