Speech team off to impressive start PalOmar College's forensics team will defend every citizen's right to aguaranteed cash income Saturday in a congressional debate at Mesa College. The Comets will be matched against nine other college teams after winning eight awards last weekend against 50 of the largest schools in the western states. Diane Landfear led the team in their impressive showing by capturing the honors in o r a to r y and i m p r o m p t u speeches at the San Fernando State College site. Charlotte Vickers, Jan Glasgow, Gill Rain, and Jim Strong also received "excellent'' accolades for impromptu oratories. Tom Wheeler and Bill Wright took top awards in debating. Palomar students numbered 15 out of the over 500 attending the match. Mr. Ray Dahlin, speech instructor and team advisor, says students may still join the team and re_ceive one unit of credit. On November 3 and 4, the Come t speakers will attend an El Camino College contest in extemporary speaking, oral interpretation, and debating. Southwestern College willhostthe team November 11 for an extemporar y, expository, impromptu, and persuasive speaking and oral interpretation contest.

Narcotics committee in planning stages, ASB council learns Dr. Frederick R. Huber, Palomar President, addressed the student council yesterday on the formation of a joint student--faculty--administration narcotics committee. Dr. Huber explained the purpose of the committee as to "explore the whole s ubject of narcotics as it relates to our college and community and society and further that the committee · would make every effort to make the large r group aware of the physical, psychological, emotional and intellectual effects of the use of narcotics." The counc il approved the formation at an earlier date. Members are those who volunteered from the student council and interested students. The first meeting was called concurrently by both Dr. Huber and Jon Mitchell, ASB president on Nov. 1 at 11 a.m. in the Conference Room in the Administration Building. The chairmanship of the committee could be a joint student-faculty arrangement. Further plans will be made at the meeting. Dr. Huber first made reference to the idea of the committee at his Convocation last month. He said at the counc il meeting, "I am not s tarting out with the idea that we have a narcotics problem on campus, only that the subj ect needs exploring. " He suggested that we s hould talk to police, psychiatrists, and other qualified people. He stated, "we need knowledge and background, and that's the opportunity being extended to the committee."

Navy program nioves into second successful year at Palomar With enrollment of an additional 25 petty officers this sem ester, 50 u.s. Navy personnel- -including one women-are full- time students at Palomar. Members of the new group will join a pilot c lass which was initiated in September 1966, first in the Navy's new Associate Degree Completion Program for s elected enlis ted personnel. Palomar was one of three junior colleges in the United States chosen to participate in the program to provide career petty officers with special training r elated to their Navy jobs. Secondary objectives are aimed at re-tae.tion of outstanding enlisted specialists in the service and to increase proficiency in certain c ritically needed career fields . All participants are expected to achieve AA degrees during their. s tay.

Senior Chief Petty Officer H.A. Van Ness, liaison official for the program here said that since the Navy students attend classes furing all three semeste r s, most of 1967 pilot group would comple te r equirements at the end of the present term in January. Students who enrolled in the program this year, and presumably most in s ubsequent grups also, may have shorter s tays since some may have credit from attendance at other colleges before going into service, or from correspondence and Navy courses. Van Ness pointed out that all of the 50 were specially selected with outstanding records and motivation toward a full service career. He added that since e nrolling here the Navy students have maintained a "high B" grade average and more than half have made the Dean's List. (Continued on page 4)

membership fee for a full-time student. The students would be required to pay this fee unless the fee would prevent them from attending college. Under the present law, payment of a student body fee is not mandatory. In other action, the assembly passed resolutions: - -favoring doing away with a state law that prohibits distributions of partisan, sectarian or denominational publications on campuses. --favoring liberalization of social restrictions at CJCSGA state convention. Palomar's delegates and their workshops were:

Business-- Ted Konopisos, Janis Rose, Bill Johnson, Don Bilworth. Creative Arts-Debbie Hayward, Margaret Williams, Vicki Hass, Audrey Jaques, Rita Schmidt, Kathleen Sweeney. Communications--Steve Woodall, Carl Hammer, Brice Larsen, Ron Simeca, Sann Sweeney, Glenn Hayashi. Religion-- hosted by Palomar and chaired by Mason--Kent Jacobson, Cheri Chambless, Sharon Dempsey, Sandra Foster, Bill Mason, Sandy Phelps, Janis Johnson, Linda Causey. John Mitchell attended the Presidents Workshop and Joan Widrig was the resolution committee representative.

Larsen elected Frosh presiden t Brice Larsen was elected Freshman Class President last Wednesday with a 192-99 margin over opponent Cheri Chambless. His first job is to appoint the remaining class officers. Phil Robinson, frosh vice-president, is the only one to be named thus far. Larsen, a Business Administration major who plans to becom~ an attorney, has many fresh ideas to introduce to Freshman Class.

Larsen would like to organize a class competition later on this year. It could possibly include a tug-of-war, and track events. The idea is open for suggestions, which can be submitted either to Larsen or other ASB officers. Other ideas include a suggestion box to be placed in the library for those who don't know who the ASB representatives are. Larsen will work on the publicity angle of club functions.

Hecsh cites _p rdJlems of alienated in Frichy Humanitiei Lecture "Always carry a dime in case you are arrested so that you can call your lawyer," was one of the many advisory statements Samuel Hecsh presented to his audience in the second in a series of humanities lectures last Friday. Hecsh pratices law in San Diego, where he has been active in local politics and the American Civil Liberties Union. Sightless, he was accompanied to the speaking platform by a seeing-eye dog. The topic of his lecture was "Rights of the Alienated." According to Hecsh, there is a wide variety of alienated groups within in our society. "Criminal lawyers are di.scriminated against. Women are discriminated against. The aged, juveniles, physically and mentally handicapped are discriminated against. And post- criminals are discriminated against, said Hecsh. "The Pledge of' Allegience ends with 'with liberty and justice for all.' But what we really mean is 'with liberty and justice for all if you happen to be an adult, male, white, Anglo-Saxon with money. This is the basic statement of our whole problem of alienation he said. "Women are certainl y discriminated against. There are labor laws which say women can't work as long as men. Equal opportunities must be provided by the legisl ature." As far as divorce laws, Hecsh believes women are definitely alienated. They may get money, the house and most of the

possessions, he said, but what most people fail to remember is that the women usually also have responsibility for the children. "They can't get a good enough job to pay the babysitter to take care · of the kids , so the result is that they net nothing," said Hecsh. Senior Citizens all over the U.S. are really separate and apart from the r e st of the groups. They cause an employment dilemma. They could retire at 65 if they lived that long when social security laws were passed. Now they are living past 65 and society doesn't know what to do withthemwe hand them a paycheck- and tell them not to go to work." The physically handicapped such as those with heart conditions or diabetes is another alienated group. "If you fall into this category," he joked, "my advice to you is to enter upon a field of endeavor in which no one has to hire you. Self- employment is just about the only answer. These people can get no group insurance at wor k. This is definitely an econom ic discrimination. "A post-criminal is immediately labled as a second class citi zen. Little or nothing can be done to about arrests. They go on job applications, which limits a pe rson's chances . A Felony convictions make you practically unemployable . You can't e nter professions or the military and are ve ry limited." Hecsh brought the examples he c ited from case s he has read or has defended himself.

A recent study showed that the American view toward drinking is all wrong. Hear, Hear! So somebody suggested that we lower the drinking age, serve beer at college, and make drinking part of the American culture.

Letters to the editor

To do it would involve changing the let's-seeif- we- can- get- awaywith-it attitude to the informal we- do- it- everyday-so-what attitude. Impossible, no; improbable, yes. Because when the law making these changes would first be put into effect, there would emerge a great onslaught of had-one-too-many students. And we certainly can't have that ... can we? Besides, what would become of happy hour?

CTUnderson's charge rebutted eAs chairman of last week's election, I would like to thank THE TELESCOPE for giving me the opportunity to anwer Mike Gunderson's charges that the October 6 elections were run inefficiently. G·..mderson has charged that rules at the polling places were incredibly lax. He has never bothered to inform the Election Committee who was cheating. when they were cheating. or at which poll. You have read his charges. Now here are some 'facts: 1. All students who mar.ned the polls were instructed that there was to be no campaigning within 50 feet of the polls and they were to punch the students' ASB card before the ballots were accepted. 2. The idea of having wide distribution of ballots was a Student Council decision which Gunderson supported.It was not the decision of this committee. Beacause of this change, voting booths were not needed.

Gundel'son speaks of "reports of students voting more than once." He has no proof to back up this charge. As far as Dean Robert Bowman and I know, he has never even made an effort to look at the election records . Until he can produce some concrete evidence, both the Student Council and the Election Committee will continue to dismiss his charges. Gunderson's charges are based totally on hearsay--and it's not ev~n good hearsay. He had volunteered to work at the polls at 2 p.m. on Friday.However, at 1:30 that afternoon I saw him sauntering off campus. Naturally, noting his lack of concern on Friday, it was quite a surprise to see his front page charge in Tuesday's paper. This whole incident is disappointing. But for Gunderson's own sake, I hope that in the future he devises cleverer ways of gaining publicity. Rita Schmidt Co-chairman, Elections Committee






Parking situation: latecomers lose out . Everyone knows the parking situation on campus is "EEECH", but rather than wait for mid-semester drop-outs to make room I'd like to put in my comments now. I get here, usually, between 8:15 a.m . and 8:30a.m. and park in the lastrow of a lot if I'm lucky, halfwayuptheembankment if I'm not. What happens to the people who don 't get h~re till 9:30 a.m. I don't know, unless they are the ones who park along Mission Rd. The upper dirt lots behind the Student Union are generally unusable by 9 a.m. on any Monday, Wednesday or Friday. I did not say filled, because if the students with 8 a.m. classes made an attempt to pull in closer to the next car I am sure a surprising numher more could park there. Why not try it? At least till mid-term flunk slips come out. Edith M. Gain

Then we hear the upper part of the generation gap yelling back that it would never work. Well, it would work and it does!

What we need are cantinas as in Buenos Aires. Cantinas are places that will blow your mind with only a glass of wine, music and people. Each cantina has a live band which plays lively Latin American songs in a fashion that makes you unable to sit still in your seat. Intense volume enables you to fully distinguish their music from the competing bands in the surrounding cantinas, which make up an entire block appropriately called "Little Italy."

[informal editorials]


Election coverage criticized • I strongly believe that the first and foremost duty of a newspaper is not only to report it accurately but completely. · In announcing that there would be elections recently, THE TELESCOPE failed to mention the amendment which appeared on the ballot. The cand~date coverage was more than adequate; however, there was no mention of the amendment by the paper or by anyone of the candidates in their platforms. I am wondering why something such as a constitutional amendment should be hidden so thoroughly. The amendment concerned adding a pep committee to the standing committees already part of the student council. The chairman of this committee is to have voting power on all matters coming before the student council. What is the matter with the pep club initiated by the student council about three weeks ago. It seems to me that a club of this nature would function better than a committee controlled directly by the student council. I cannot understand why the amendment to the present constitution since it is to be rewritten. Furthermore, if the new constitution receives the same publicity this amendment did, it will pass with no opposition. I should also like to know what we are going to do with two AMS presidents. I fully realize that Dennis Shepard was running for the office of AMS vicepresident, but the official ballot listed hirr. as the unopposed presidential candidate and therefore he has been elected AMS president. Thomas E. Chuck



Besides all this there's another appeal: all the spaghetti and wine you can eat and drink for one price ($2) . Can you imagine all the wine (and food!) you can drink for $2 .. not even R.M . is that cheap ... depending on the drinker, of course.

e we would like to make two criticisms of your October Third issue. First of all, the group picture of the candidates running for ASB offices gave unfair coverage. Some of the nominees were hardly visible because other candidates' heads were in front oftheirfaces. Since the candidates were not given the opportunity to make speeches or state their platforms verbally, there was little chance for the voters to become well informed. If THE TELESCO!- '2 had printed individual pictures of the candidates with their statements, it would have been a real service to the voters. Secondly, we feel that every article in THE TELESCOPE should contain a byline . The writers should receive recognition for what they write and be willing to take the credit or criticism for it. Sincerely Vicki Barcott, Secretary of The Young Republicans (Bylines in THE TELESCOPE are confined to columns, individual opinion, and feature or news stories of interpretative nature. The rest is, or should be, objective news reporting. --Eds.)

In case you missed last week's front page story, there is a fantastic scholarship being offered to outstanding students who would like to study abroad.

Sports Talk Speaking of Palomar football

Southwestern Apache halfback, Doak Landers, catches one of quarterback Bill Miller's six completed passes for the evening while Comets Scott Martinson,(50), and Don Paul , (25) converge for the tackle .

Comets rema1n unbeaten; ·drop Southwestern, 29-6 •

There have been many fast-scoring games in the history of football but few could be faster than the Palomar-Southwes tern contest Saturday as the Comets found themselves leading 13-0 after running only one play from scrimmage. Palomar went on to handily defeat the Apaches 29-6 on afog-enschrouded Escondido High field . Palomar will travel to Mesa next Saturday night and play the unde rdog role once again as coach· John Kovac's strong entrant is presently ranked 16th in the nation. Kovac's Olympians pin their Pacific Southwest Confe r ence title hopes on a m ean defense which yie lded no touchdowns to either Arizona Western or Fresno City Colleges , both high scoring te am s. The Mesa offense, however, has been Kovac's biggest problem. While a stiff defense, headed by All-Conference line backe r Humphrey Covington, has held tight, the Olympian offensive punc h has yet to explode this year. Wiebe's main concern in t he Mesa cont est will be the ability of his offense scoring against the strength of Kovac's s tingy defense. Lately Palomar has been running up high scores; 42points against Gro ss mont College and 29 oppos ite Southwestern. With the first-string s tatus of quarterback Le n Gann restored, the Cornets have been moving the ball s te adily in the ir last two games. The Palomar defense, acc ording to Wiebe and defensive coach Tony Lynds , ''has been improving e ach game. '' The Comet defe ns ive line is bolstered by v eterans Kayle H e n d e r s on and Rich Saunders, while the linebacker corp is s teady as Scott Martins on and Kevin Kelly have turned in s tellar p e rformances . The Palomar-Mesa c ont es t shoul d pro ve to be s omewhat of a grudge

match with Palomar ernh arrassing Mesa two years ago 27-0, and the Olympians corning back last year and whipping the out-manned Comets 22- 7. Palomar's Mark Eldridge, took the opening kickoff on the Cornet 10-yard line and broke away from the Apaches' tackle r s for the score . F ollowing Palomar' s kickoff, Southwestern fumbled to lose possession on their own 22 yard line. The Comets took no time in capitalizing on the Apache's miscue as Rocky Lucia took a handoff from Le n Gann and tosse d it to flanker- back Jack Ashby in the end- zone for the touchdown. Palomar's offense collected a total of 4 12 yards compared to the Apache's 234 yards. Before t he first quarte r ended, the Comets starte d a drive on their own 29 yard line and marc hed downfield to the Southwestern eight yard-line. However, the Apaches he ld and Rick Trestrail came in to kick a 15-yard field goa l to pad Palomar's margin to 16-0. Ear ly in the second quarter, quarterback Len Gann lace d the pigskin to As hby who raced 41 yards to the Southwestern 13 yard line to set up t he Comets' third touchdown . Gann then fired an aerial to e nd De an Holloway for the score. A bad hike from center flubbe d the PAT atte mpt. Bill Laws stole a Mille r pass on the Apaches' third down to set up another Palomar tally. On four rus hing plays the hosts plowed 19 yards for the TD. Trestrail split the uprights fo r the extra point. The vis iting Apaches were scoreless at the half with the Comets in the lead by 29. The Southweste rn squad finally got up enough steam in the fourth period to put s ix points on the scoreboard . whic h by

then was not visible to anyone. The drive was cul minated on a 26- yard pass to Gary Estes , a rookie end for the Apaches . Southwestern gained possession once more before the end of the game but did not have time to mount any important threat when Ed Worseck pulled in an interception of an Apache aerial to enable the Comets to r un the clock out. Score by quarters: Palomar 16 13 0 0-- 29 Southwestern 0 0 0 6 -- 6 Palomar Individual Scoring Eldridge . 90 k ickoff r eturn, (kick blocked) Ashby, 22 pass from Luc ia, (T r estrail kick) T res trail. 15 fie ld goal Holloway, 13 pas s from Gann, (kick failed) Gathers . 1 r un (T r estr ail kick)

It may not be as fascinating as the P alomar College Cactus and Suc culent Society, or as startling as the moustache on Steve Woodall's face, but nevertheless the Palomar College football team deserves raves of notices . When t he Comets started out this season, skeptics from t he North County as well as the kingpin city area, referred to Palomar as the dead- end group of the Pacific ~outhwest Conference . Granted, last year wasn't a banner ca mpaign for coach Cecil McGehee's team, but critics should have taken anothe r look at the Comets and seen that a young man from Oregon had taken over the reins as head c oac h of the perennial dead-beats of San Diego County junior college football play. A quick c heck of the recor ds will show t hat Palomar has not had a winning football season since Stu Carter guided the Comets to a 7- 2 slate back in 1962. However, McGehee did manage to bring his ball c lub's record up to a respectable 5- 4 reading in '65. Take away those two "winning" years and you'll have to look back into the archives quite some tim e to find another successful Palomar football team. This is where Mack Wiebe steps in. the young man from Oregon. Barring up s ets from MiraCosta and Citrus Colleges, and with a pinch of luck, this year's Comet squad could be the best in the school's 21 year history. Tak ing nothing away from other recent Palomar coaches, especially McGehee , who for two years headed the Palomar football staff and gained the admiration of all his player s for being a top- notch football mind. l\1ack Wiehe, at this point has to be considered the finest coach in P a 1om a r · s r ecent game of musical coac hes.

Harriers outrun SDCC Knights;

In addition to Donahue and Martins on, it has been announced that quarte rback Len Gann and fu llback Me rle Gathers were picked by KOGO ne ws of San Diego as the Pacific Southwest Confe r e nce' s P layer s of the Week for the ir efforts in the Comets' 42-26 conquest of Gross mont Colle ge two week s ago. The selection of Gann and Gathers as Players of the Week by KOGO,m a rked the second time this season a Palomar perform e r has been picked by the San Diego r adio and te levision s tation as the PSC's mos t valuble player. Prev iously defens ive halfback Bob Cordne r had been tabbed by KOGO.

Coaches rate Donal1ue, Martinson as Comet players of the week The Palomar College coaching staff announced yesterday that Brian Donahue and Scott Martinson have been chosen as Playe r s of the Week for the ir p e rformance in Palomar's r esounding 29-6 thumping of Southweste rn College last Saturday night.

Excluding McGehee, who is understandably thought of highly in loc al football c ircles , Palomar in the last seven or eight years has had a rough time concerning head coaches. The lis t of fieldgenerals who have served duty at the San Mar c os school includes s eve r al fam iliar names, notably Bob Bowman, now Dean of Students and Chris Pagakis, presently physical education and health ins tructor. These two mentors bowed out more or less at the· right time, with Bowman stepping up to the administ ration and Pagakis refining his talents to the classroom and San Marcos city council. With the acquisition of Wiebe , Athletic Director Ward Myers now seems set in having a sturdy leader for the Comet football team. Unless of course the Univers ity of Arizona doesn 't pick him off, which seems unlikely s ince the personable Wiebe is obvious ly satisfied with the Palomar surroundings. Wiebe will be the fi rst to testify to the fact that the s uccess Palomar has enjoyed on the gridiron so far has not been al his doing. Tony Lynds, Jim Clayton, Doc Marrin, and Bob Lnet have all played major roles in the Comets' drive to respectfullness . So far , all is well with football at Palom ar College, in fact better than it has been for about 21 year s . However r ichness has been known to turn to poorness over night. A caution note should be dis tributed to all team members that big mean Mesa and San Diego City Colleges loom in the futur e to tangle with. Taking these two teams lightly is like picking the Boston Red Sox to win the World Series. It should never happen . As of new however. as one Escondido Sports write r c himed , all hats should be doffed to Mack, Tony, Jim. Bob and t he rest of the football Comets.

A WS pwsents armual fashian show to indimte proper aonpus apparel The fall fashion show was sponsored by the Associated Women Students of Palomar College, with fashions by Walker Scott of Escondido. The fashions ranged from sports outfits to evening dres ses. It was hoped that these fashions would give the girls some idea of what might be suitable for many AWS events such as the ·avy Wives Tea on Oct. 25 and the Home .:.. c oming which will be Nov. 4 in the Stuient Union. The fashion show was to draw students for orientation to the organization. Debbie Hayward , AWS president, explained the purpose of AWS as "wishing to promote and assist in the activities of the women students and to s timulate the intellectual, physical and social life at Palomar College." AWS Advisor is Mrs. Marjorie E. Wallace, Dean of Women. Officers. bes ides Miss Hayward are Patricia Russo , vice-president; Sandy Phelps , secretary; and Heidi Weflin, publicity chairman. ''These girls are more than willing to help you get into AWS and become involved, " said Miss Hayward.

Administration-student closeness is Facuity Senates main objective A close relationship between students, faculty , and administration is the main objective of Palomar' s faculty senate , say senate officials. Now beginning its fourth year, the senate is patterned after those at the larger colleges in California. The president of the senate, Sheridan Hegland. says he iE "especially anxious t hat students everywhere have a much l arger voice in decision making. I am anxious that students are active in the making of all decisions. Students are far more capable of making decisions than we give them credit for. 'We' is society, t he administration, faculty and unfortunately the students themselves. " "If we could trust 17 and 18 year olds to push westward in cov~red wagons taking matters of life and death in their hands, we can trust students to have a say in crucial matters ," Hegland said. He added that ''If we let old codgers like me vote, we should let 18 year olds vote because they have a bigger stake in the future. "The faculty senate consults the student body's opinion as well that of their c olleagues before reaching decisions," he continued. Rita Schmidt is this year's student council representative to the senate. "This year we are working with students on teacher evaluation and with a dministration and the board of trustees on other policies . All decisions are arrived at with the widest possible cooperation. Of course final decisions


are made by the board of trustees and m or e ultimately by the state legislature and even more ultimate!y by the voters of Califo rnia. This c oope r ation has to be a sharing in decision making. The community should have a voice wit h weight for all policy decisions,'' Hegland said. Faculty senates at the junior college le vel are relatively new. They have been in state colleges for ahout three or four years . " The idea for a faculty senate came most li kely from the universities who have used this system years ." said John Fullerton. who is on the s enate's constitution committee. "Most minor issues go through the faculty senate, presently composed of about 20 members. Major issues are presented to the entire faculty for approval. The e ntire faculty has a say in any and all issues and can recall an issue or ask the senate that a policy be referred to the faculty as a whole for discussion," said Fullerton. Senate officers are e lected by the senate itselt and senate members are voted in by the faculty. This year's officers besides Hegland are Wade Snyder, vice-chairman; John Felton. secretary: and Mrs. Evanell Renick , parliamentarian. Meetings are held every other Monday at ll a.m . in the conference room . " The meetings are always open and all are encouraged to attend," commented Hegland.
