The Collegian Police Report: Drunken student found on road, cited for underage drinking Richard S. Ga The Collegian Last Saturday, officers from Police and Safety investigated a report from a staff member that two students were assisting another student who was intoxicated. Officers found the student lying on the road. He was unable to stand without assistance. The student was taken to the Department of Police and Safety for identification purposes and it was determined that he may need medical attention because of his extreme state of intoxication. The student was identified, cited for underage drinking and released to a resident assistant after he had fallen asleep on the bathroom floor of the Police and Safety office. No further medical Former defense secretary crisis in the middle east (continued from page 1) "Congress is debating weapon systems without a comprehensive plan." On the topic of American involvement in the Iraq crisis, Carlucci said, "We need to keep ow chess pieces in place for a while to see if they work." He said that although the effectiveness of sanctions has a checkered history, the world community cannot back off before they give those sanctions a chance to work. "Military solutions are frequently non-solutions," Carlucci said. He feels the military should maintain its position unless provoked by Colleges starting to place less emphasis on SAT scores (CPS) In the movie "How I Got into College," the protagonist tries to make up for his poor Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores by sending the college he wants to attend a humorous videotape of himself. Now Lewis and Clark College in Oregon says it will turn fiction to reality. In late September, campus officials said that, starting next school year, they will let students apply by submitting a "portfolio" of original work along with high school transcripts. Students that try it won't have to send their SAT or American College Testing (ACT) scores. The idea, said Peter Brown, Lewis and Clark's dean of admissions, will attract "a bright student who is highly motivated but doesn't want to be categorized" by a SAT score. attention was required Students Violate Alcohol Regulations This Monday an officer from Police and Safety was called to Niagara Hall for 'an alcohol violation. A resident assistant had investigated loud yelling coming from one of the rooms and found an empty beer case. A couple of people in the room had beer in their hands and Police and Safety was called to assist. It was determined that the occupants of the room were not drinking and the two students who were drinking were 21 years of age. The residents were informed of the Alcohol Policy which prohibits anyone under 21 from having alcohol in their Saddam Hussein. However, he also said "The In reference to the Iraq crisis, "We need to keep our chess pieces in place for a while to see if they work." -Frank Carlucci former Secretary of Defense [non-military] possibilities are diminishing day by day" and While Brown's school apparently is among the first to offer a "portfolio path" to getting in, it's only one of a growing number of campuses foresaking the SAT. "The SAT has become a symbol of the statistical approach to college admissions." - Peter Brown, Dean of Admissions Lewis & Clark College Hawaii Pacific, Southern Utah State, Southern Vermont and Fort Lauderdale colleges, and all the schools in the Oregon State and California State university systems have made SAT and ACT scores optional for students Thursday, October 18,1990 room. The occupants were referred to Student Services Conduct Standards for this violation. Stolen Property Recovered This Sunday while on patrol an officer from Police and Safety noticed a Penn Dot weight limit sign hanging in a residence hall window. The coordinator on duty along with the officer went to the room to retrieve the sign. Once inside the room they found another street sign which was determined to be the property of Titusville, PA. The signs were confiscated and arrangements were made to return the signs to the owners. The occupants of the room were referred through Student Services Conduct Standards. speaks on that he could not imagine the U.S. forces being welcome in the Middle East during the Moslem holy days next June. During his speech Carlucci said that if there is a confrontation with Iraq, it is unrealistic to think that U.S. forces can come out of it unscathed simply by using its air superiority. On the decision about how much force the U.S. and its allies should use, Carlucci said it would be wrong to let our forces go to Iraq and not let them fight to their fullest extent, and feels "a moral war is an oxymoron." in recent years. College reformers often claim the SAT in particular does not reveal much more about test takers than how well they have mastered accurate guessing. The test, critics add, does not accurately forecast how well female high school seniors will do in college. "The SAT," Brown maintained, "has become a symbol of the statistical approach to college admissions." Mindful of the criticism and the defections, trustees of the College Board, the organization that oversees the SAT, are pondering changes to make the test less "statistical."
