Fellow Students: Herr is a chance to buv Sonething and at the same time help all your fe,$low students. Captain Kimball J Scribner, of Pan American Airways, is selling his book, YOUR FUTURE AS A PIIJOT, and donating-a11 pfofits to mbry- Riddle wlth the stipulation that the money collected is to be used directly for the students.Pam American Airways will match the profit dollar for dollar. The book is on sale in the SGA office for only $4.00. Ralph J. Dietz Secretary, SGA

DORM-2-CLOSE Students, for you who are getting comfy or plan to get comfy in Dorm 11, you might as well throw that thought away, because your lease is up in April. The original 5 year lease on Dorm I1 will be up in Dec. of '71. The Administration tried to buy the Nova Apartment building, hut settled for extending the lease until April of


Here we go again!? It seems that my article in lest weeks Avion needs correction. The money that "we" made on Captain Scribner's book must be termed a grant, to the school, for the benefit of the IRS (but don't worry, yours truly is working around the strings). If, at the time you're reading this, you haven't given blood, then by all means do so. If for no other reason than it's a cheap thrill. If any club or organization is interested in helping the Peace Corps build a school (which can be done for the nominal fee of $1200) please drop a note in my box or see one of the posters around canpus. If you haven't heard by now we have purchased 2 Cessna 310's and are waiting on ' delivery. This decision was made after an extensive study and weighted with Cessna's promise of $10,000 towards GRW if we mdde the purchase. I'm still looking for interested personnel for the Student Court, so get your name in ASAP (as soon as possible). It's not long but I have to go to work anyhow, so till next week.

Dear Butch The airls of dorm accept your apology,

The cdministration has no definite plans for students living in Dorm 11. They will have to erect a new dorm by April '72 or move as many students into Dorm I as possible. The remainder will have to find off campus housing. The coed's seem to be the only ones guaranteed housing. They will either get shoved in a house or a wing will be blocked off in Dorm I. So gang, get ready for the big move.


Camera shy Ann Irving is one of our new coeds that we would like to welcome this trimester. Ann is from Sprinsfield ~irginia though- sh; now has very close ties to Israel after spending some time there. . She hopes to return there and attend the University of Israel. She is studying Aviation Management,and enjoys traveling.

This letter to Senator Javits was submitted by Mr. Loomis. He feels that the ERAU graduates should be made aware of the information in this letter so they can see the world and its offers in a true light. Dear Senator Javits: Thank you for your letter of June 29, 1971, regarding your bill S.2, tne proposed Pension and Employee Benefit Act. The need :or legislation in this field is long overdue. My interest in your proposal stems from my own experiences in the aerospace industry, where the oension credits of hun>reds if not thousands of men and women have gone down the drain due not only to the recent declining of that industry, but also to the very nature of the aerospace contracting business itself. In the aerospace era of 1950-1970, the average aerospace worker-scientist

Dear Editor,

mv heart to see these young men and women, tomorrows leaders, performincr an "exercise in Democracy", utilizing their Freedom of Choice, to select the leaders that are deemed most fit. It is this very same Freedom of Choice that has made our country greatrand will keep her great, as lona of De< as The S~irit --~ mocracv is k e ~ t alive bv oroani~ations~ such as th; SG~. Yours truly, President Nguyan Van Thiu


Dear Editor, I was standing on the corner, when I heard my bulldog bark. He was barking at two ( 2 ) men who were gambling in the dark. 1t was Stagger Lee and Billy, two men who gambled late; Stagger Lee threw seven (7),Billy swore that he threw eight ( 8 ) I hope this clarifies any misunderstanding that might have devel.oped. Yours truly, Irving R. Berlin

and shop worker alike-was nominally employed by a number of companies as he followed the contracts from firm to firm. Awar-d of a contrnct to a firm meant a rapid increase in staff at that companyrattracting workers from other firms whose contracts were expiring. The staff peaked with the work load, and as the job was done, workers were laid 'off or voluntarily left (in the face of impending layoff) to go to work for the next contract winner. 1 The "spreading around" of (aerospace contracts by the ! .~overmentmade this process an inherent feature ; of the business. For management, the /tenureis of course greater, increasing with the level of management position. But for non-managerial people, "professional" and otherwise, the turnover rate has been, in my: experience, phenomenal. The average aerospace company will be found to have a pension vesting period of 10 years or more. Thus, most aerospace employees have never come close to obtaining any pension rights in any of their jobs. So....we find , con't. page 12

rema Phi Delia After last Sundays Inter-fraternit football game the Brotxers of Sigma Phi remained undefeated by beating Sigma Chi 7-6. The defense again showed its powers allowing only the single touch down on the opening play of the game. The point after was smothered, which proved to be one of the deciding plays of the game. Next week, the Brothers will attempt to extend their record to 3-0 when they meet Delta Chi at 1:OOPX. Some landscaping has begun in preparation for the addition of more parking space behind the houses. Plans in the future call for carports being built and an extension from the garage doubling as a carport or cover patio. The Brothers are pleased to welcome among them one new face and prospective Brother Charles Metlock. Last Saturday, Dan Massaro was initiated into the Brotherhood of Engineers. Congnatulations Dan. Until next week...






This past Monday Dr. Sain came to the Rho -House with an impressive offer. He .is willing to support an ERAU entry in the NIFA competitions coming up shortly. Last year Rho tried to get the schools backing and couldn't succeed. With the help of Dr. Sain AHP would pessibly be flying in the regionals as ERATI'S entry. On a final offering, yesterday and today,as you walked around through classes, someone in Volusia County needed blood. The fact is, every minute, 6 pints of blbod are needed somewhere in this country. If you're healthy you can be thankful but why not share a little of that thanks and donate a pint. Come see a Rho Brother for details, do it today befor it's too late. Give a pint and while at it, do it in the name of AHP. So if Chicago doesn't burn, we'll see ya'll next week.

Delta Chi

There was a serious side though, as pledge educational films were shown Special thanks to Tom Tindel for his help on that. Our footbsll team;looking strong, rolled over Alpha Eta Rho, 13-0. Paul Barry and Kent Roper supplied a touchdown apiece to our winning ways. Spence Price was chosen as our new "BE", which in laymans terms means he performs a variety of functions. Among them, liason between the fraternity body and the A1urm.j. Board of Trustees, experienced advisor to us and close aide to the President and officers. With Spence's knowledge of the fraternity, I'm sure he'll be invaluable to us. Today is the Blood Drive "Part II", so please give ,a pint. It could be you? some day needing a pint of blood and I'm sure you wouldn't want to hear any excuses,so donate a pint in Delta Chi's name, if you haven't already. Remember pollution is everyone's problem. Do your part and don't litter. See ya next week.



Our second annual spirit night was held last Friday. This is an evening where all the brothers and pledges acquaint them1t's been another long selves with each other. It hard weekend for Rho. ~ n - Was a fun night with an thusiasm was high for our ample SUpPly of beer for Football qame on Sunday those who were thirsty. but a 13-0 pasting at the hands of Delta Chi left a bitter taste to what might have been a pleasant two days. We have regrets to dole . out, both to Bob Speilman,whose finger o m e out at right anglea, .and. to MYchael Winters, who took i t on the shoulder, separation that is. If the wave of walking wounded continues, no telling.who or what might be on tha field for us next week:. Last week's Avion had BALSA KITS f o r u-COBTROL6 RADIO a slight mistake, our new Professional Associate Pledge is Jim Houston. Jim comes to Rho by way of the 'PLASTIC f i T S , . U.S. lumy and wants to take part in our profemm-' ional and social structure. I'm sorry for laat week, Jim!

prove himself in smaller boats. But what we need now is ideas, controversy, and guys (girls too, if you w ~ l l )that have the comon interest of sailing. Come to this Wed. nights meeting at 7:30 PM in the Academic Complex,RBan 102. Don't worry about experience, there are many members who have never even sailed before, so come and see if sailing's for you.

by Terry Garbig Last Wednesday night was officially the 1st meeting of the Sailing Club for the fall trimester, and it proved rather dissappointing. There seemed to-be a great interest in the club but evidently a great many members lack the enthusiasm or the hour on Wed. nights to attend. It's your club; and there is a nice surf lately to go 'ocean sailing in, so it's up to you. There are plans to take the aqua-cat and club member Terry Zarf's "Sidewinder" out in the ocean this Saturday. so we'll keep you posted on the list of fatalities in next week's Avion. Among the ideas expressed at last weekb meet ing were plans to look into a 25 ft. sloop that Sleeps four,for the more experienced sailor. If enough members were interested it would be possible to acquire the boat for week-end excursions. But before anything like this could be sailed, the novice sailor would have to

SENATOR'S LETTER CON'T. thousands of men and women who, after 10 or e w n 20 years of work,have nothing in the way of pension credit rights to show for it. The irony of this situation is especially aggravatins when we consider that ill this time was generally spent working for firms havingtpension prcqrams (but, alas, with vesting conditions impossible to satisfy due to the nature of the business), (2) these firms were undoubtedly charging the government for the costs of these unattainable pension programs in the prices of the contracts, and (3) the worker, although nominally employed by this or that company, was in actuality working for a single employer, the Federal Government. Surely, no other recent industrial Dhenomenon has been quite as unfair cr unjust as that of the loss of pension credits by workers in the governments own aero@pace/defense industry. I respectfully suggest that your investigation of pension inequities and your formulation of remedial legislation include... a program instituted by the goverment to retroactively provide pension credit rights to aerospace'

workers-past and present. such a program would consider that any worker in the aeros~acerindustrywas and is in fact earning pension credit tenure regardless of nominal employer, provided that his employer was funded by the Federal Government.. .Funding would be provided by the various firms to which pension costs were and are paid by the government. If something along these lines is not done,we run the risk of having fostered essentially an entire generation of workers who gave their best

service in what was once one of the Nation's highest purposes, but in the process will have achieved nothing of their earned pension rights. James McCaffcrty Consulting Engineer

Individualism skips rampant through the student life-style. Give Peace A Chance chants have evolved into a new soft music, a new gentle sound of namifesting itself in quiet love stories in song. Small shops and coops have opened, selling hand-made, back-to-earth clothing and organic goods a reaction against depersonalized massproduced 'culture. Do-it-yourself attitudes accompany the doyour-own-thing philosophy. 'we grow our own organic food. make our own clothes build our own furniture, plan our own curricula, ride our own bikes instead of driving a car...and the list is as lona as the list of problems: Rut obr newly-discovered Student Age of Individualism isn't beneficial if it isn't pos-

itive directions. Hopefully, it isn't self-indulgent, isolated individualism. Hopefolly, in developing ourselves as individuals, we'll create the impetus to get back together and then get it all together. There seems to be a change of consciousness, but hopefully, not a lack of it. Students are looking for new kinds of solutions. Hopefully, they are no less concerned about the problems. But if through the vote and working "ithi,, the system rather than without it -- students can not be effective in changing our envircment, another stage of disillusionment one punctuated with apathy, discouragement and 1950s nostalgia-may set in. The list of Relevant Issues is growing Longer and longer.
