Compton Elected By State Demos Gary Compton, a Montana Tech Young Democrat, was elected Western District VicePresident by the New Democratic Coalition at a meeting at Eastern Montana College March 24 and 25. Tom Beggin of Billings was elected president by the recently re-organized coalition. Representing Montana Tech at Billings were George Waring, Brian Sayre, Rob Durkin and Gary Compton. The four helped in the re-writing of the constitution and a presidential preference vote. Senator George McGovern topped Montana's New Democratic Coalition list with 50% of the votes. Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm was next with 22.7% and Mayor John Lindsay was third (13.6%). Senator Edmund Muskie garnered 9.1 % of the votes and Senator Edward Kennedy was given 4.5% on write-ins. Senators Humphrey and Jackson and poor old Governor George Wallace went zilch per cent.

All The News That Prints To Fit"

S u en Co~ __ci •• T e·Wa.y ·Was By Kim Bawden

The Student Council, at its meeting of March 22, 1972 (which, Inciderrt.ally, was postponed from the originally scheduled meeting of March 20), decided many issues of varying importance. The first topic of discussion was the Montana State Chamber of Commerce's invitation to the "College Student Business Symposium" held in Billings on April 7. Since five students are able to attend this symposium, and up until the meeting, only four were chosen, Jack McCarthy was chosen to attend the meeting as the Student Council's rep~es.entative. The Legislative Council Intern Program was the second item to receive consideration. Mrs. Rose Weber invited partictpatton by Tech in this program. Previously, only Montana State University and the University of Montana have been invited to participate. The college, in order for a student to take part in this program, must finance the student in the amount of $600.00. The individual who would take part in this internship would be assigned to either a senator or a representative during the next legislative session in 1973. It would be necessary for the individual who would represent Tech to miss a semester of school. However, the possibility of receiving college credit for this work is being looked into. If you are interested in this program, please contact Dean Stolz. The very newest group on campus received recognition at this meeting. The Montana Tech Literary Society's constitution was accepted unanimously. The CIC requested $500.00 for a [cint venture with the dance committee for a rock concert with light show for the M-Day dance. No admission would be charged, and the dance would last from 8:00 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. Two bands would play for this occasion. However, decision on this request was postponed until further investigation of cost is completed. General specifications for the Amplifier office were received in a memo from Professor Taylor. This will be done for all groups who will have space in the new student Union. The Handball Club was found to be $30.00 in the red at this meeting. Mr. Kelly, the Registrar, suggested that both the ASMT and the CIC should get together to rewrite sections in the student handbook pertaining to' the role of student government. Joe Holland reported that he was invited, to present an address at the closing session of the Constitutional Convention in Helena, Friday, March 24. He was chosen to represent the Montana Student Presidents ASSOCiation. A suggestion was presented ,that a catalog be made up of all those items which the incoming student council should be made aware of. . For the F'reshman-Bophomora Orientation Committee it was noted that the student representative is responsibl~ for setting up the program for Freshman-Sophomore Orientation Days. A request was made by Dean Stolz that all campus organiztaions elect officers before they leave for summer vacation. In other business, a motion was made that a committee be formed to study the need for compensation of officers of the ASMT. Should it be formed that a need exists, who would receive it, how much they would receive and what from would the compensation would take. The motion carried unanimously. Jack McCarthy, Cheri Norine, John Likarish and Darrel Metz were appointed to the committee. They will report the results of their study at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the ASMT on April 10, 1972. A reminder was made that since a primary election is going to be held to precede the general election of officers (general elections are held on M-Day), planning for this election must be moved up one week.

Augustus Heinze said in The Butte Miner that, "The last h great copper bonanze on t e 'riches hill on earth' is yet to come." It has been speculated that the last veins of rich ore lie under the campus of Tech. If true, this college faces a choice of practical alternatives. It could re-locate, perhaps in Arizona, and leave way for open pit mining. Or, it could choose to stay and fight like Heinze did; but to remain wouldn't be practical. It's cheaper to re-build than to maintain old buildings. By staying in Butte, the e would be no insurance of winning a battle over this prime land. Modern man just might decide it's best to take- what's here now instead of teaching people how to take it later. It is the opinion of this reporter that Tech's regents consider re-location. It would provide an insurance policy never previously held. A guarantee of both economic and intellectual growth unattainable in Tech's present location.

Radio 328 Trains Tech Broadcasters The 328 R,adio Programming class is a combination of the academic approach and the practical approach. Separate from the FM committee, this course includes students interested in working in the new Montana Tech radio station and students desiring radio programming as a career. Each of the 36 members of the class were required to apply for and take the F.C.C. examination for a third class radio operators license. In addition to the regular lecture class and class work on Tuesday, separate committees were established to work on Thursday. The committees are management program, announcing, library, and music, with sub-committees within these areas. The lab work, a portion of the requirements, enables individuals small groups of the class to acquaint themselves with radio data and equipment.

22 March 1972

Editor, The Amplifier: As the 1972 Presidential campaign heats up, many false issues will be created in order to avert the electorate's attention from the fundamental failings of the Nixon Administration. There has been one Democratic candidate who has consistently kept his sights on the real issues. That man is George McGovern. His critics have labeled him as a "one-issue" man- Vietnam-and the media have tended to ignore him. They have done so to the detriment of all citizens interested in solving the problems of our nation. Senator McGovern has come forth with intelligent programs in many fields which deserve better press coverage. One of these fields is school financing. At the present moment Butte schools are suffering from overcrowding. New classrooms must be built. Yet we are living in a period When taxpayers are rejecting proposed tax hikes on bond issues. Nationwide the rate of school bond rejection has risen from 11 percent, up to 33 percent in 1964, and to 52 percent in 1970. The property tax structure is clearly regressiVe and unfair because of wide disparities in the tax base among school districts, hence the California Supreme Court ruled that financing schools under the present local assessments was unconstitutional in that state. Senator McGovern has come forward with a plan which would vastly enlarge the Federal contribution to local education. First, McGovern wants the Federal Government to supply at least one-third of the total costs of public elementary and secondary education. At present the quantity of Feredal aid is les than 7 percent of school costs. Based on current expenditures the McGovern plan would require spending $15 billion per year. Since McGovern is interested in achieving reasonable improvements in educational quality, he proposes spending $24 billion by 1976. Second, three-fourths of the funds committed under McGovern's program would be to ern's program would be allotted to the States on a basis of educational need - including numbers of students in average daily attendance, and special conditions which increase per pupil costs-and the capability to raise revenue for education within the State. This plan would help Montana education. Third, the remaining onefourth would be allocated among the States under an incentive program designed to achieve fair administration of the State and lOcal tax structure. Funds Would be used to encourage such steps as publication of property valuations,

uniform statewide property assessments, simplifed procedures for citizen action to assure equitable tax enforcement, and the elimination of special troc pri vileges. Fourth, under the McGovern plan, the funds allocated to each State would be distributed under a formula designed t.o equalize educational oPI?o:tUl1l" ty by achieving mmIm~ standards of educational quality in all school districts froIJl the combination of Federal fnds, State aid, and uniform ]ocal school tax effort. Such a plan deserves careful consideration by young voters interested in a career in teaching. As you well know, the Nixon years have not been notable for reducing unemployment among teachers. And children still need an educationYours sincerely, George Waring It is hard to believe that there were over 80 students waiting for the Messiah saturday afternoon in the SUB. Needless to say he didn't ap, . r pear in any flash of light 0 blast of trumpets. If this waS a happening I for one was not impressed.

Get A Haircut, Find A Job, 'Buy A Car - ech (an For the first time in three years a general increase can be expected in the employment of college graduates this spring, and prospects at all three.levels look brightest for business and engineering students, including those graduating from Montana Tech. This is the conclusion reached through a survey by the College Placement Council to evaluate the anticipated level of national college recruitment during the 1971-72 academic year. Another survey by Frank S. Endicott director of placement at Northwestern University, Concurs on the findings. The Endicott Report also says that, although more graduates will be hired not much change can be anticipated in their starting salaries. Montana Tech's spring graduates reflect the optimism felt nationally, and Gustav Stolz, Jr dean of students and placernent director at the college, is confident there will be jobs for everyone who receives an engineering degree in June from Tech.. The dean explains that locally and within the state the outlook is not so rosy because of the dificulties being experienced by the country's copper industries. He adds that the problems of the copper companies reflect on other industries as well, making them hesitant to do a great deal of recruiting. He also points out that the public's attitude toward a clean environment makes industry reluctant to spend a lot. of money recruiting at the present time. However, he says the country on the Whole appears to be climbing out of its economic slump, Which has been the basic problem and the employment pictur~, in general, is improving. At Montana Tech, the number of recruiters visiting the campus is about the average of what it has been over the Past few years, according to Stolz. Recruiters are already Planning their schedules for the 1972-73 school year. The Dean makes the comrnent that this year only the engineering and science graduates are likely to find opportunity knocking at their door. Although everyone should be able to find a job, he says, "The others will have to go out and dig. This is a big change. In the past, jobs have looked for students. Now some students have found they must Use their own initiative and really go out and sell themselves." The national survey reports that starting salaries will relllain about the same this yea:, Which still leaves Tech engllleering students with the adVantage. On the average, Tech's

June 1971 graduates excee~ed the national scale for startmg pay. Over the past 20 years, in fact, Tech graduates have been consistently higher and this year is not expected to be any exception. Many summer jobs both in and outside of Montana are still available for Tech students 1 mentions Dean Stolz, who encourages as many students as possible to take advantage of these openings. Returning to national predictions, the College Placement , Council Study states, "A cross the board, in all discip!ines at all degree levels, a fl ve per cent increase in the employment of college graduates IS anticipated by respondentsfrom 54,870 a year ago to 57,549 in 1971-72." Doctoral candidates can Iook forward to the highest percentage in employment, acco:ding to the Council study which says the increase will be about 30 per cent. According to the Endicott Survey a rise in employment of eleven per cent will be by graduates with a bachelor's degree. Both studies agree that a de... crease is likely at the moster's degree level. Endicott expects three per cent. The Council puts the fall at f!ve p:r ~e~t. Those predicting significant decreases are: metals and metal products, 41 per cent; utilitie sand transportation, 15 per cent; nonprofit and: educational institutions other than teaching 14 per cent; automotive and mechanical equipment, 9 per cent, and aerospace, 7 per cent. The last group, it was pointed out, made its response before the announcement of the new space shuttle bus program, which could make more jobs available. Overall, pro sp e c t s look brighter, especially for specialized and skilled graduates. It appears that for a while, at least, the cutback is over.

Anyone interested in walking for the April 15th and/or April 22nd "walk" are asked to get a sponsor sheet from the Spurs or Circle K. In addition to the Walk For Mankind, the Montana Tech Spurs are conducting numerous activities. A basketball game is scheduled for Tuesday, April 11 with the "M" Club. No date has been set for the "Ugly Man's Dance."

Classrooms Going Up Construction is anticipated to begin this summer on the first classroom building erected on the Montana Tech campus in nearly 20 years. Pre-plans have been approved by the State for a classroom-laboratory building, and local architect. Walter Hinick currently is preparing construction plans. The last academic structure built on the college campus was the Petroleum Building, which was constructed in 1954. Acting President Dr. Kenneth McLeod and Business Manager Victor Burt expect that the plans will be completed in May and that the bidding will take place sometime' that month. They are looking forward to early summer as a general date for construction to begin and hope that the building will be ready for occupancy in the fall of '73. The classroom - laboratory building will be located immediately west of the President's home on Park Street and will house the Department of Min- . ing Engineering, the Department of Geological Engineering, the Office of the Dean of Students and the Ofice of +jle Dean of Academic Afafirs. Also contained in the building wil be eleven classrooms, ineluding thre foram.l lecture halls; ten laboratory rooms; a number of small conferenceseminar rooms, and other general office space, including space for graduate students. Most of the offices, notes Dr. McLeod, will be designed to achieve maximum flexibility of floor plans. The daylight basement will house heavy equipment for the mining and geology departments. Elevators will run from top to bottom of the building to accommodate h dicapped students. Financing of the building will be done through the State long-Range Building Program. The cost wil be about $1.5 million for purchase of land, ing construction and utility expansion.

Judge Speaks

t Tech

By G. W. Waring He was late, but he was worth waiting for. Lt. Governor Tom Judge caried his campaign for the Democratic Party's nomination for Governor onto the Montana Tech campus on March 16th. In a brief i n t rod u c tor y speech, Judge told Tech students that the youth vote could be a powerful instrument for beneficial change in this state. He recalled how d e d i cat e d young people working for Eugene McCarthy made older politicians reassess their views and programs. Judge fielded over twenty questions from a serious and attentive audience. The questions ranged from pollution control standards to his opinion on the work done by the Constitutional Convention. Judge favored polution control standards that complied with those of the federal government. On the question of state acounta, bility, Judge said that we now have a situation Where "the, buck can be passed from one

department to another without anyone taking responsibilty." This "buck-pasing" could be stopped if more offices whicb are now elective could be made appointive. The g 0 v ern 0 r would then have more control路 over state executive actions路 He would be in control over more state agencies and flO longer just a "ribbo~-cutting" figurehead.
