Alligator, Amoeba Deaths Plague Science Department A baby alligator died from unknown causes in the science department on the evening of November 28 after living on campus for a period of six weeks. The alligator came to the campus with Dennis Wolfe, a Palomar student, who obtained the reptile from a Vista variety store. The Palomar specimen was the last of a family of six alligators , the other five having died recently. Mr. Fred L. Elliott of the science department handled funeral arrangements but to no avail. The body refused to respond to formaldehyde saturation and was thrown out be-

cause it "stunk too much."
DEATH TOLL MOUNTS In another science department calamity, instructor Eugene H. Stevens pronounced thousands of amoeba dead on arrival at Palomar College. The amoebe came here several weeks ago from Monterey where they had lived all their lives in a laboratory supply center. Severe jostling has been determined by the science department as the cause of death. No fitting services could be determined for amoebe so burial followed immediately in the Men's Room.

Amenca • MeIt•I ng Pot Of Nat·lons
"America is a combination of the best of everything." George M. Mardikian, author of Song Of America, told an assembly of students and faculty members Wednesday. "This country is a melting pot where people of other nations become Americans and contribute the best of their home country to the American Way." Mr. Mardikian, who came to America a poor immigrant, now owns a chain of restaurants in Fresno and San Francisco, valuable property in California, and a controlling share of three radio stations. He said , "In the old country I couldn't have quit my first job." He said he could never have improved his position as he did here. " I want to tell you," he said , "that America is still the land of opportunity. " He said his recipe for success included hard work and faith in oneself, in America and in God. Mr. Mardikian said that the greatest thing America had given him was "dignity." He said, "I wish I could make you understand what it is like not to be an American." Mr. Mardikian said that the purpose of his book, Song Of America , was "to tell Americans what this country has meant to me. "
The Palomar College magazine, Focus, will be ready for distribution in mid-January, according to Richard S. Johnson, journalism teacher. The publication will consist mainly of factual prose written by the students and will also featu ; e imaginative works, photographs and original art pieces done by Palomar students. Subject will range from Jazz to Athletics and from the history of Palomar to sketches of personalities. "The contents are varied and the magazine will have a fresh approach. It will be unique but it's main objective will be to please the students," says Lou Rabe, editor of the magazine. The magazine will be given to all ASB Card holders but there will be a slight charge for non-ASB Card holders. Staff members include, Antje De Wilde, Roy M. Klapp, Jacquilin M. Long, Richard H. Tarquinio, Nikki Finlay, Jeanette ·O'Donnell and Jerry Hassman. Staff artist will be Attila M. Uludogan and staff photographer will be Gary Mansperger. Don Berry serves as Business manager, Stephen Mallory as advertising manager, and Howard E. Harms as circulation manager. Ben Brode, art editor, will be responsible for the photographs and art works and Miss Rabe will serve as general editor. The magazine will atempt to examine many of the qualities and characters of • student and campus life, according to Johnson.
NDEAFund May Reach $136,000 The College Board has authorized the administration to apply for National Defense Education Administration funds in the amount of $68,000. The college, by agreement with the NDEA, must match this amount and plans to do so over a two year period which would bring the total to $136,000. Some of this money would be used for student loans said College President Dr. John W. Dunn. In addition, much of the fund would be earmarked for development of the language department he said. Previously the loan fund at Palomar under NDEA has been $3 ,600 and has been loaned out to a small number of students in $400 grants. If the NDEA funds are obtained the college will supply $25,000 from this year's budget and $33,000 next year on the matching basis.
First Female Running For the first time in Palomar's history a female student will run for the office of Commissioner of Athletics. She will be among candidates running for ofticeintheseconds~

PJC Student Drivers Can Resolve Traffic Danger
• •.• Insig h t s
Over the years, the Telescope has tried to win a contest on safe driving campaigns sponsored by an insurance company. This year we are greedily entering again, but we do not plan to clutter our inside pages with gruesome pictures of squa shed people and smashed automobiles. Instead we offer a solution to the traffic problem here at Palomar which might possibly be applied to other areas in need of traffic safety. Being strategically located next to the parking outlet to highway 78, the Telescope office is in good position to survey the driving habits of the assorted Palomar students. To some of these students we now present a plan that will solve the traffic problem for the rest of the school year. We would suggest that the plan be followed in future years. The students in mind are the ones we notice most leaving the campus. They are the bravest, most gallant students in the school. They are knightly, in fact. We have seen them on numerou s occasions in their throbbing machines. These machines throb most violently when passing females , apparently an intimation of the driver's heartbeat. The brave knights, on their mechanic steeds, then race off on some mission of heroism. Now we would not suggest that such behavior is anything but indicative of the most virile, courageous manhood , but we would suggest that these drivers could !QUelch all rumors to the contrary by one gallant display of their bravery. What we have in mind exactly is for all brave drivers to line up for one glorious, 100 mile-an-hour charge into the concrete face of the nearest highway abutment. Then the world will be doubly sure that they are not "chicken. " As an inc idental, the demonstration will solve a dangerou s hazard present on the campu s byways. We ask our heros again to perform this gallant a ct. By doing so they will prove themselves beyond doubt, solve the traffic problem and help u s win the contest. So brave knights, mount up a nd sa ve the day for us.

In this column, which will be printed regularly in the Telescope, I plan to discuss in miniature , various aspects of campus activity. A most disturbing problem, on which I have managed to maintain silence for some time, is the subject of my discussions this week. While I ha~e nothing but the sincerest affection for women students, .I cannot help but look upon them as stumbling blocks in the way of many consCientious male students. Women, especially those not too earnestly interested in furthering their education, are distrac-tions. And distractions should be held to a minimum where education is concerned. Now, I certainly wouldn't suggest that women be restricted from entering college. But I do wish that a set of strenuous tests could be devised that would screen out those women not devoted, at least partially, to scholarly goals. Or maybe we men should ban together in defense of our common objective - education. Or is our common objective education?
Students Should Speak Their Piece To Mr. Hassman: Come now Mr. Hassman, tell us what a ne wspaper is! Your definition seem s quite inadequate. I must agree with you t hat a ne wspaper is primarily concerned with relating events. There are, however, other ways in which any ne wspaper mu st pl ease its subscribers. That is why the re a re secti ons which hold a spec ific inte rest for every · read e r. · The Te lescope d oes not d e-
AGS President Answers Papke Editor: In beha lf of AGS I wish to t ha nk all those who hel p ed make the cookie sale for our scholarship fund a success. It shou ld be a pparent that the students, fac ulty a nd administration are behind our efforts to raise funds by honest means to furnish financial support to worthy stud e nts. Th is, to me, is a true ind ication of the sc hool spirit at its best After all, isn't academic advancement one of the p rime concerns of Palomar Coll ege? I should also like to clarify a point that was raised in the last issue of "The Telescope." . It would seem that Jim Papke do u bts whether or not the proceeds from t he cookie sale will really be put in a sc holarship fund . That this question eve n came up is a surprise to me, but I will state defilitely that t he proceed s fro m the sale will be used as in t he past fo r sc hola rsh ip a wa rd s. It might a lso be of interest to the cr itics of cake walks, cookie and bu tto n sales t ha t AGS last year ca rr ied out a se r ies of educational events to raise sc holarshi p money with a somewhat meage r monetary r etu r n in compariso n with the efforts put out by fac u lty a nd AGS me mbers. Did Ji m Pa pke atte nd a ny of those events? If J im Pa pke still dou bts the veracity of our state me nts he ca n he lp in su re t ha t thi s money is used fo r sc hola rsh ip by qualify ing as a me mbe r of AGS for next semeste r when t he sch ola rships will be award ed.

vote itself to columns by Amy Vanderbilt or Billy Graham , nor does it have a weekly TV-Radio schedule. It is a student newspaper, yet it is a newspaper. As in most newspapers, the Te lescope has a section reserved for the incom ing letters to the editor. These lette rs range anywhere from being "factual to sarcastic to d ownright nasty." I cannot imagine a newspaper wi thout t his provocative sect i o~ . Wouldn't it be silly for t he Sa n Die go Un ion to direct its attent ion solely to financial and polit ical news, or for th e Telescope to conc e rn itself only wit h news a bout t he football tea m a nd th e d ebate tea m?

Do you see my point Mr. Hassman? It is important that the Telescop e continu e to functio n as a newspa p er, a nd it is equally important that t he Palomar student speak up as an ind ivid u al.

Survey Shows African Students' Problems
expert watch repair
14ti E. GRAND ESCONDWO
The African student in the United States, in spite of economic and emotional problems, is happy with his American education. In a survey just completed more than 1000 African students now in this country, 79% reported they were "completely" or "mostly" satisfied with their training. Only 4% registered dissatisfaction. Another significant finding is that the majority of African students feel they do not get along well with American Negroes. Almost two-thirds (63%) indicated friction between the two groups. Other major results of the comprehensive survey are that 64% of the African students meet discrimination, their biggest problem is lack of funds, their general academic performance is above average, and their image of America and Africa is influenced by their U.S. experience.

These are some of the highlights of the liE African Student Survey sponsored by the Institute of International Education with a $20,000 grant from the Johnson Foundation (Racil.e, Wise.). The research was carried out by the University of Michigan International Center. Last March , the University of Michigan center sent questionnaires to 1,533 African students on 366 American college and university campuses. Twothirds of the students (1,010) filled out the form. Later the researchers held personal interviews with 208 Africans at 43 institutions. Statistically, the composite African student is a 26-year-old single male from either Nigeria or Kenya, studying social science at the sophomore level. He would like to earn hi s doctorate but expects, realistically, to return home after receiving his master's degree. Eight-hundred and one Africans were enrolled in Northern institutions while 209 were studying at colleges and

The liE African study was designed to uncover the difficul· ties faced by African students in the United States. In general , the problems encountered by Africans were similar to those of all foreign students. In the first few weeks, understanding and using English was the number one problem listed by . 21 o/o of the Africans. Adjusting to American foods ranked second (19%), adapting to American life was third (17%) and discrimination was reported fourth (11 %). As they stayed longer, their problems changed. Discrimination was still listed as a major problem by 12% of the Africans, making it the second-most diffi_cult area as their stay in-

creased. However, once adjustment set in, the number of students with no real problems jumped from 4% to 17%. ~ The most startling result of the liE African survey was the evidence of friction between many African students and American Negroes. Contrary to popular belief, these two groups do not make friends easily, leaving the average African with a sense of disappointment. These feelings were also reported at Negro institutions where possible friendships for Africans would seem to be greater. In personal interviews, an African man at a midwest school said, "Africans have been brought up in one culture, and American Negroes are victims of circumstances in another culture and don't know where they belong."

universities in the South. Despite the fact that almost half of them had arrived within the year, 19% of the African students had already changed schools. Of this group, onethird (32%) transferred because they had completed their course while 24% said their subject or field of study was not available.

Let's give our basketball team all the support we can by attending the games. President of International Club, Jerry Salehi spoke to Wesley Club about the Islam reli· gion, the national religion of Iran. This was a part of Wesley Club's approach to understanding the different religious of the world. National recognition went to Palomar's Circle K this month, as it was mentioned in the December issue of "The Circle K Bulletin." This was a busy but interesting week for Rod Jones, Jim Kisgen , and Bob Anthony. Wondering if any important international figures would take time from their busy schedules to talk to them, the young men placed collect calls to such places as Cuba, Russia, England and France. The Cubans, learning that the
telephone call was from the United States, refused to talk to anyone, whether the call was paid for or not. The Russian news agency, Tass, would not accept any call from the U.S. either. London was very foggy, they learned, when they tried to call Buckingham Palace. Contacting the Secretary of Charles De Gaulle in France, the boys were dismayed to find out that it was night and that President De Gaulle was sleeping. Rather perturbed because they couldn't make a break through with any officials, they gave up their persuit after telephoning the United Nations Building and Nelson Rockefeller.
Contrary to what was earlier stated, food for the Mexican village will not be sent for Christmas, but during February, when more canned goods and supplies will be gathered together.

Comets Dump OCJ C As Owls Cop Trophy
TARQUINIO-------. Pagakis Wants Wrestlers ... ... Cagers Need Fans
Palomar lost the opening round in its own tournament la st week-end a s the Comets turned in a poor showing for a 66-52 loss to San Diego City College. The locals won t he loser's bracket Saturday night a s they obliterated OceansideCarlsbad in a 72-53 white washing. Citrus College finally won t he three year old Palomar tourney by tripping San Diego 69-53. Citrus' John Silbernagel was na med most valuable player of the series as he dunked 46 points in the two games. Other top players, chosen to re present their schools in the a ll-tournament squad , include Les Christensen , Tom Maxwell a nd Gary Prestesater of Citrus a nd AI Catlin of SDCC. John Stanley was top gun for Palomar.
Coach Chris Pagakis' Palomar wrestling squad opened up the season last week as they tied Fullerton 21-21. The locals had to forfeit ten points for two matches; there was no one to wrestle in the 130 and 157 pound classes. Asked if he was pleased with the teams performance Pagakis said: "Hell no; we want to win! " "And another thing," he went on, "make a pitch for more wrestlers will you?" Okay, let's have some wrestlers. Palomar lost ten points to Fullerton and five to IVC just because there wasn't anyone to wrestle. If you're big, small or inbetween, experienced or inexperienced, Coach Pagakis wants anyone who will get out on the floor and try. VICTORY AND DEFEAT The Palomar College basketball team has turned in a scattered performance so far this year, with more losses than wins. But, the Comets should still be able to win in the South Central Conference. They walked over the only sec squad' that has faced them this year, and , despite losses have turned in respectable performances against stiff opposition. With five games left before league play opens at Oceanside on January 6, the team should have some support.
Brennan's Five Out To Top Navy, Marines
Wrestlers Forfeit S Points; Imperial Valley Wins 24-20 Palomar lost a close wrestling meet to Imperial Valley Tuesday night 24-20. The four point difference was one point less than the five the Comets lost by forfeit in the 157 pound class. Winning for Palomar were Ken Imaizumi in the 115 pound class, Ron Foley in the 137 pound , Tim Craig in the 191 pound and Greg Arnold , heavyweight. All four Palomar victories were by pinning.
Imperial Valley won by decision in the 130, 147 and 177 classes and by flooring in the 123 and 167. Last week the Comets tied Fullerton 21-21. Winners for Palomar in that meet included : Imaizumi, who downed his man, Mikio Hamato, Ed Martony, and Craig all by decision. Next wrestling meet for Palomar will be at Orange Coast College on January 4.

Coach Joe Brennan's Palomar hoopsters will ru sh into another week-end of top quality pre-league competition as they host the Navy all-stars Friday and the El Toro Marines Saturday at 8 p.m. in the dome. The Comets have been placed against the roughest squads available by Coach Brennan, to ready his favored team for another sec title; despite the experts' choice of Palomar the conference should offer rigid rivalry this year, especially from second-ranked Antelope Valley. AVJC is reported to be an even match for the inexperienced Comets and has defeated Riverside College; Riverside defeated P.C. in an earlier game.

COMETS FAIL TO HIT
In the Palomar-San Diego game the home squad was plagued by poor hitting. Stanley and Ed Vitale were the only PC cagers to reach into the double numbers. Stanley had 18 and Vitale 12. Five San Diegans hit the double numbers. The Comets looked good at the beginning of the game as they piled up a quick lead, but by the end of the first ten minutes the score was tied-up at 16-16. After that it was San Diego all the way. PC TOPS OCEANSIDE
In the second round of the tournament Palomar exploded archrival OCJC for a wild 72-53 come-back and the consolation trophy. Despite the absence of first stringers Vitale and Repa the host casabateers made it Palomar from the tip-off as they more than doubled the Oceanside scoring efforts for a 46-20 half-time lead. Boyd Galland and George Hartfiel paced the Comets with 15 points each; John Stanley scored ten. Surprise hot-shots for P.C. were subs Mike Walters and Bill Dunn with eight and seven points, respectively. FABULOUS COUNTRY CORNER

They Would Use Peach Baskets! The people around Springfield Massachusetts on one cold day in 1891 probably thought P. E. instructor James Naismith was cracked; Naismith walked into the Springfield College gym carrying two peach baskets. But, Naismith didn't pay too much attention to onlookers. He quickly went to work and set up the peach baskets on either side of the room; he made a few rough marks on the floor. Then, he gave his shivering
P .E. stud.ents a rundown on some rules he had devised for a new game , guaranteed to keep them warm. And, on that day, Nov. 6, 1891, was played the first game of basketball. From Naismith's little invention has grown a sport that has become the joys of millions. But, what changes!
