in lodging search
By HANS KROGER
Collegian Staff Writer
WOuld you like to have friends
visit State College this summer
but don't have enough room and
can't afford hotel rates? With a
little ingenuity, students or friends
looking for lodging can put a roof
over their heads and still hold on to
some of their hard-earned cash.
If you don't know anyone who
can put you or your friends up, and
you're on a tight budget, finding
cheap accommodations in a town
filled with empty summer apart
ments can be quite frustrating.
Unlike Colorado Mountain Col
lege and San Diego State Universi
ty, both of which rept dorm rooms
during the summer for as low as $6
per night, Penn State's extra hous
ing space is closed to most visi
Donald Arndt, the University's
director of housing and food serv
ices, said University policy pre
vents Penn State from competing
with downtown hotels and motels
by renting out empty dorm rooms
during the summer.
"The University can only pro-
vide housing for officially spon
sored educational groups, such as
sports camps and conferences,"
Therefore, now is the time to
start looking for the few accom
modations that are available, es
pecially if the Central
Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts
is one of the planned weekend
One option is to check the classi
fied sections of local newspapers,
which advertise rooms for rent in
rooming houses and private
homes at reasonable prices.
Another option is a bed and
breakfast. Rent and Repast, a
Centre County bed and breakfast
organization, provides informa
tion on local bed and breakfast'
rates and also handles reserva
Bed and breakfasts are usually
reasonably priced: about $2O per
weekday night per person and $l5
if you share a bathroom. Prices
are about $5 more on weekends.

W. German president urges global unity in graduation speech at Harvard
By ARLENE LEVINSON
Associated Press Writer
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. West Ger
man President Richard von Weiz
saecker told Harvard University's
alumni and graduating class yester
day there must be a return to the
cooperative spirit that allowed the
Marshall Plan to help rebuild Europe
after World War 11.
Weizsaecker said Third World
countries need similar treatment and
that East-West relations continue to
pose a challenge to the world.
"We do not want new conflicts
about borders. We have learned pain
ful lessons from history. But borders
should lose their divisive nature for
people," he said.
"The plan was visionary as great
victors seldom are . . . The aim of the
United States was to restore the confi
dence of the Europeans in their own
strength, in their own political fu
ture," said Weizsaecker, in a speech
prepared to commemorate another
given 40 years ago in Harvard Yard.
In June 1947, at another Harvard
commencement, Secretary of State
George C. Marshall took 12 minutes
to outline the economic prescription
to repir Europe that came to bear
"Misery prevailed in Europe: ex
pulsion, displacement, hunger, no

TO ENROLL ...
Each semester the Center for Counseling
and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers
a number of groups. Most of the groups
meet weekly for 2 hours. The groups are
open only to Penn State students. Enroll
ment is free and can be made directly
through CAPS, 217 Ritenour Health Cent,
863-0395, between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Monday, through Friday. To participate in
the group, you must first make an ap
pointment to see the leaders. All groups
have limited enrollment so come by soon
if you are interested.
Need some assistance in dealing with the
pressures of classes: roommates,
relationships in general, or life at PSU?
This group is designed to teach coping
skills which you can employ both here
and after graduation. Emphasis on psy
chosomatic conditions will be dealt with
in the group.
LEADER: Marty Marder, Psycologist
TIME: TO BE ANNOUNCED
This is a semi-structured group where
group members will explore how their
own thoughts, feelings, and behavior
influence their satisfaction with
relationships. In addition, group members
will be encouraged to identify and work
on changing one way in which they
communicate or cope in relationships.
LEADER: Sharon Hamilton,
TIME: Wednesdays, 2:00-4:00

heating, : no power, no production, no
material resources, no prospects,
When President Harry S Truman
signed the plan in 1948, in the form of
the Foreign Assistance Act, he autho
rized $l7 billion for grants and loans
to European governments over the .
ensuing four years.
When masters degrees were con
ferred on the 233 School of Public
Health graduates, they rose and
shouted "Condoms!" as they tossed
prophylactics into the air.. Wrapped
in white envelopes, the condoms were
inscribed "Harvard School of Public
Health' Class of 1987" and below that
"Ad Venerem Securiorem," Latin for
"safe sex." •
The crowd cheered.
Graduate Tom Baiocchi, 37, of
Gray, Maine, said his classmates
decided to toss the condoms because,
"It's clearly a good idea to protect
yourself from AIDS and venereal
disease. Also, the idea of throwing
condoms is good clean fun."
Other schools showed their inter
ests as well. Business administration
graduates waved dollar bills. And the
crowd was sprinkled with opponents
of the school's investments in firms
doing business in South Africa who
flew pink balloons imprinted with the
words: "Divest the rest."

by eating in excess or by starving in order
to develop a certain body type. Ten to
twenty percent of college-age women

eliminate the food by vomiting, using
laxatives, or going on a severe fast. This
condition is called "bulimarexia" and
there are treatment strategies to help the
bulimarectic individual change this
problematic way of relating to food and
their self-image. If you are interested in

concerns, call 863.0395 and schedule an
