VOTE FOR ISSUE 3!! This was the cry as CCC st udents and faculty participated in the campaign for a one mill levy tax to provide operating funds for the new campus . Speeches were given, miles were walked and tons of literature were passed out in a few short weeks. Highlighting student participation was a parade which blocked traffic in downtown Cleveland. When all was said and done, the levy passed! Students took a short, quick breath and then were thrown into semester midterms . Bob Stern , Campaign Head, speaks on the square.

Greek Week, 68, became the action-packed week of the year, a potpurri of talent, comedy, and fellowship through activity. Theme Day found the Greeks in various costumes representing the wild, western plains, the romantic isles of the Pacific, the old days of the Bonnie and Clyde era, and even our own back door on Bolivar Street. The box lunch sale offered home baked goodies to the highest bidder. (We' re not sure whether the motivation was hunger or curiosity, or both, but the lunches sold in record time.) Competition was strong as the groups participated in the bed races, softball, and the pie eating contest. Greeks were represented well as they placed in the college annual variety show. As a climax to the week, Jack McNamara ana Linda Branzel were crowned Greek King and Queen at the Greek Ball in the Royal Oak Room at the Cleveland Shereton Hotel. As a result of the weeks activities, Beta Alpha and Sigma Tau Alpha tied as outstanding fraternity of the year, and Beta Gamma was named outstanding sorority.
