Palomar selected to participate in USN pilot education program Beca113e of a new national program, Palomar will be the object of national attention for two years. This outside interest is the result of the Na-vy's pilot "Associate Degree Completion Program." Seventy-five Navy career men have been placed in three colleges throughout the United States--Palomar, Mt. Sa:1 Antonio, and Wentworth in Boston. The object of the program is to see if two years of college training will inspire men to stay in the Navy for longer periods of time. The program was developed from one of six major proposals made by the Naval Personnel Study Committee to the Secretary of the Navy. Theoretically, these programs would help the retention aspect of Navy training.

Palomar was chosen mainly for two reasons, reported Lieut. D. K. Chogos, temporary Navy representative to Palomar. Probably the most influential factor is that Capt. Charles Coatts, department head of science and technology, goes on active duty for the Navy every summer teaching in a Navy school. Coutts' reputation in Washington as well as Palomar's record brought Capt. Bill Upshaw from the Bureau of Naval Personnel on campus to appraise the school. He was so pleased with Palomar, Lieut. Chigos stated, that he said he would continued page 2, col. 1
Palomar's Associated Women Students will start off Palomar's social year with their "Get-Acquainted" Dance September 17. The Saturday evening dance will be held in the student union, starting at 8:00 and ending at 12:00. Edy and the Showmen will be the featured band. The group is now rated number-one in San Diego. Admission is free to all ASB card holders and $1.00 for non-Palomar guests. Since it is an AWS-sponsored event, the organization requests that girls wear skirts and blouses and that ooys wear shirts and slacks. Not only is this the first dance, but it is also the first in a series of social activities that clubs and the ASB Council will be sponsoring. The purpose is to interest students in more than the scholastic aspect of college life, to engage them in various college activites.
nearly 600 students stayed for the council's "Welcome" program. Entertainment for this was provided by the Jagged Edge, a Vista rock and roll band. While the band was performing, students circulated around the patio, visiting organizations booths that were staffed by club officers explaingthepurpose and objectives of their organizations. About 12:00 an assembly was called in the student union. After introducing the '66-'67 Student Council, ASB President Steve Wozniak turned the meeting over to Vice President Mike Umphries who presented the advisors and officers of campus organizations. The new cheerleaders were then introduced and the meeting adjourned for a luncheon and more entertainment by the Jagged Edge. Approximately 300 students remained for the meal, giving themselves the opportunity of meeting other students and becoming oriented to the clubs. The final part of the program was a meeting for those students who planned to attend the Cuyamaca leadership conference. The Council started planning for this activity early in July. It felt that by making students realize that they are welcome at the college and that the organizations are dependent upon their support for success, they would become interested in the college activites.

game Friday by Coach Larry Knuth
With two fine scrimmages behind them, Palomar College's football team looks forward to its 1966 opener with Compton College a t 3 p.m. Friday in Compton's Ramseur Stadium. Palomar barely outlasted Compton last year in Escondido, but this year's Compton team offers less speed and explosivene Gs but a tougher defense and more size to s top the hard running of Mike Cory and Chris Palmer, plus the air attack of Len Gann and Rod Nicol throwing to Bob Lent, Dave Tibbetts and Bill Sullivan. Coach Cecil McGehee's eleven outhit, outscored, and outplayed the nationally ranked Santa Ana Dons from the powerful Eastern Conference last Wednesday morning, then dusted off new Golden West JC from Huntington Beach in specatcular style.
Dr . Huber explains the total education program at yesterday's "Welcome" assembly.
"Total education" is president's theme Freshmen students assembled on Comet Field yesterday for an orientation and welcome to Palomar by the administration and ASB officers . ASB President Steve Wozniak opened the mee ting, expressing the concept that this semester there is a special effort to acquaint the new students with the "to~al education program" at Palomar. The emphasis is on the co-curricular opportunities and activities at the college. Wozniak introduced Palomar's president, Dr. Frederick Huber who explained this total education program. He stated that student activities are directly related to classroom work. Some activities, he pointed out, transfer from the classroom to the students and others carry over from the student body back to the classroom through clubs and organizaions. "Student activities does not disassociate itself from the total education .... This is a part of the institution, "Dr. Huber concluded. After Dr. Huber finished his address, Wozniak introduced other members of the administration who gave short speeches explaining their duties and their offices' functions on campus. The fall Student Council and cheerleaders were then introduced and the assembly was adjourned.
Santa Ana's Dons arrived 80 strong and ranked 3rd nationally in the pre-season JC Grid-Wire poll but Palomar's hardhitting squad, led by sophomore guard Pat Farner, gave the Dons all they could handle for an hour and a half. Freshman quarterback Len Gann from San Dieguito sparked the offense as he shared duties with veteran Rod Nicol. Sophomore guard Don Deuce of Fallbrook also played an outstanding game. New Golden West JC provided a strong test for the Comets in the early part of the scrimmage but the Palomar line broke up the game with its aggressive play as backs Chris Palmer and Mike Cory scored on 2 and 63 yard runs. Sophomore Da11e Tibbetts provided the other Palomar tally as he intercepted a pass and sprinted 16 yards for the touchdown .
The biggest p r oble m in the Contet camp, though, is the eligibility of transfer fullback Chris P almer, who has been impressive in p re-season drills. The conference has ruled Chris ineligible but there is still a possibility that the decision will be reversed. Friday's starting offensive lineup will probably be: End: Grant Raybold or Butch Tufts Tackle: Jim Frank or Mike Manning Guard: Don Dence Center: Jim Stevens Guard: Pat Farner Tackle: Barney Lampe End: Bob Lent or Dave Tibbetts Quarterback: Len Gann or Rod Nicol Halfback:路 Mike Cory Halfback: Bill Sullivan Fullback: Chris Palmer or Ken Mortin

admissions office. In addition there are also changes in office quarters for some other departme nts . T he expansion of the vocatio.:J.al educa ~ion department created space problems for that department's dire ctor, James Soules. His office is now in the old news department, giving Soules more working room for both himse lf and his secretary, Mrs. Gail Jones . Mr. Scott Boyles , News and Public Relations Director, now has his office adjacent to the mail room. Filling Soules' old office is Mrs . Gearheart, faculty secretary.
Fall enrollment is at an all-time high with over 1,000 additional students registering. Robert Burton, Dean of Admissions, reports an estimated enrollment of 2,200 day students and 4,000 night students. These figures are well above last spring's which were 1,961 day students and approximately 3,400 night and part time students. Registration will continue for both day and evening classes through Friday.
Palomar selected continued from page 1 like to teach at Palomar after retiring from the service . The men chosen to participate in the program are all graduates of the Navy 's "B" school, a specialized training school. All are in the top percentile of their classes, ranging from radar technicians to even store keepers. They are free to take any class at Palomar as long as it relates to their specialty. Physical sciences and math classes seem to be their main concentration. The Navy pays all their costs except the parking fees. Traditionally, service men are waived of any physical education classes, but all the Navy students are enrolled in P. E. classes and some intend to participate in Palomar's athletics 路programs. This program is a regular tour of duty and so the participants have come with their families. Their wives are being encouraged to take classes at Palomar also, although their expenses are not covered by the Navy. Being on active duty, the men are still under Navy law. For this reason, plans call for a full time officer and enlisted man to be on campus. The officer will act as a liason between the Navy and the college while the enlisted man, Chief Bob Myer, will take care of service records, health r ecords , and their pay.
