Enrollment up 700% Feel crowded now? If present trends continue at Palomar

College, day enrollment will top 16,000 before 1978. Since 1958 the student population has grown approximately 700 per cent, from 368 day stuaents to about 2,400 this Spring. Registration figures show that the total student load at Palomar will be about 10 per cent less than the fall semester. Last semester 2,604 day students signed up compared to a record 2,400 this Spring term. Incomplete registration figures from night and extension classes sh~w that between 3,200 and 3,500 are scheduled.

Palomar has many activists. These students heard .appeals for their services on Friday that motivated them to pledge their efforts to the passage of the March 12 tax override election. Students are asked to participate in a district wide effort to inform the dis trict citizens of all the ramifications of the issues prior to the election. The call is given by both the College and ASB presidents , Dr. Frederick R. Huber and Robert F. Thoreson, respectively. Thoreson explained "there are 52 districts and we are going to canvass 36 of them." He stressed that all students should acquaint themselves with the issues and be able to answer any questions put to them by the citizenery. Those who signed up at the convocation will work in the city of their choice on the March 2 and 9 in a door to door canvass. In addition to handing out information and answering questions the students will gather phone numbers to be used in the pre-election reminder blitz. Students may still sign up in the Dean of Student Activities Office. In the special convocation Dr. Huber explained the prospective student role in the election. "This is a highly personali zed election directe·d on two fronts. The first is a letters campaign and the second and most important is the stupent effort. "You're the reason we're (faculty

The first impression to be drawn from "Papa is All" is that Papa, being the center of power in the family, is considered to be "all"-- everything. The real meaning, however, is that "papa is all" means that "papa is gone" is Mennonite jargon. Jake actually believes that since Papa is going for a train ride that Papa is then dead. Papa returns to avenge his daughter's honor and to bring a surprise ending leading the true use of "Papa is All." The price of admission 'will be 75 cents for students and $1.50 for others. Tickets will be on sale in the Student Union this week and at the door.

A graduate of Escondido High, she has been a past feature and editorial page editor of Escondido High School's paper, The Cougar. She was feature editor for the Telescope last semester. She replaces co- editors Joan Kattelmann and Steve Woodall. Miss Kattelmann has been appointed editorial editor. Woodall will be on the Spring Focus staff. Wilhelm was newspaper for instructor and a urban daily for B.A. and M.A.

"We are not a junior institution to anything, we are a community college ," stressed Dr. Huber as he continued to explain the gravity of the college's monetary condition. "We don't have the money to expand." He cited the need for additional instructors and the need for "a second class in registered nursing, and the need to expand the police science to the day program. Plans for informing the surrounding communities include important background information such as the rate of growth. "Palomar College has been a constantly growing institution. There has been phenominal growth; a steady increase of 10, 12, and 15 per cent. Last Fall we saw a 20 per cent jump and we see no end to it." He further explained, "the master plan has been revised to show at least 3000 day students in 1968. "We feel we have a reasonable issue. We must continue to bring our case to the public.

Members of Palomar's California Junior College Faculty Association will meet today in LS-2 to vote on a proposal to establish the publication of a monthly bulletin. The bulle tin would fill t he gap of communication existing between the faculty, administration board of governors and students, according to Fred Elliot, botany and biology instructor. Elliot is now serving as acting pr esident of the local chapter and is a state counc ilman of CJCF A.

Students in local competition are Sam Blalock, KeithEdleman, Paul Hauptman and Vern Pershing, men's division; and Majorie Groh, Charlotte Jaques, Diane Landfear, Cecelia Lodico, Mitties McDonald and Sara Nikkali, women's division. "Judges are selected from the local community," said Robert E. Bowman, dean of student activities. Dean Bowman is in charge of the yearly event. "This year's judges are Mrs . Valerie Briende nback from Altruso Honorary Soro• rity; Dr. 0. Doyle Dannenburg, Escondido optometrist ; and Guy Fox coordinator of counselors for the Escondido High School District, " Dean Bowman said. In order to enter competition, a student must have a 3. 0 overall average in at leasts 30 units. He must also have performed service both to the college and community."

As to The Telescope's twice-weekly production, Miss Lodico said, "It helps us s tay on top of the latest news and it seems that our r eporters meet the ir dealines more efficiently. It also may te nd to generate competition betwee n our editions during the we~k. "

Last year's local winners were Steve Wosniak and Rosie Atilano.

of monies was explained by the President, "at the present time the college receives 26 per cent from the State, one and a half per cent to two per cent from the federal government and the remainder is from local taxes . " He said the tax measure "means that above the 35 cent legal district tax (currently in effect) we must go to the public. It is a yes or no vote. "The tax 'is for five years only, beginning in 1968. It is important that the ntlblic understand this . That means that ;he 19 cent increase would cost you $ 9. 50 more on your tax biU." "It is essential that the March 12 election succeed. If it fails the college faces . curtailment in programs, classes and activities. Failure will hamper the complete development of P a 1om a r College," stated Frederick R. Huber, Palomar president. Probable areas where curtailment is imperative include such basics as day enrollment, bus services, ad u 1 t education, equipment replacement, instructor additions and further expansion plans. The 19 cent tax override would be added to the present district tax rate of 35 cents. "The cost to the average property owner (assuming a $20,000 home assessed by the county at $5,000) would be only $9.50 per year, obviously a small sum to allow your district college to move forward," Dr. Huber explained.

The comedy centers around a Pennsylvania Dutch Mennonite family in. 1945. Near the small town of Lancaster, the family is held tightly together by the iron fist of Papa, who seeks to control his children in order to avoid hiring outside workers for his farm. Under his tyrannical rule, the family grudgingly· held together. Jake openly despises Papa. Mamaputs up with him because she doesn't know what else to do. Emma dislikes him because he keeps her from meeting young ' men. Jake decides to have Papa take a little trip, permanently. He knocks Papa out and loads him onto a westbound train, believing that the train will take Papa a long way from Lancaster.

and administration) here , you're our product, we think you have to be involved in this," challenged the President. "This college is the educational and cultural center of the North County. We want to remain this way. The college is also an educational asset to you," emphatically stated Dr. Huber. "It is important that the community know our ad van tages."

Strife and growth of a young boy in Har lem is the plot of the movie. "This particular film has won ~ number of awards," said Theodore Kilman, dean of adult education and community services. "Many of the films s hown on Tuesday

evenings are ones which are rented for use in the English 45- B classes. Since Palomar College is the cultural center of North County, the movies serve as a cultural advantage to the college," Dean Kilman continued. "Many movies are artistic successes." "Anywhere from 30 to 100people attend the films and about half are students. The films are shown about every week," Kilman said.

ToUrney over Comet nine optimistic Just because the Palomar College baseball team finished last in the co-host Palomar-MiraCosta Tournament over the weekend, don't count the team out--according to coach Jim Clayton. "Pitching may be the strong point, after they learn to p itch instead of throw," stated Clayton following the third loss of the tourney and season on Saturday. "We'll have a good team, quick defensively," added the second-year coach. · Winner of the three-day affair this weekend involving eight col :eges was Mt. San Antonio-their fourth straight title. The Mounties beat Arizona Western, 9-6, in the championship Saturday. Citrus beat MiraCosta 4-0 for the Consolation honor. The Comets opened the action with a 4-0 loss to Arizona Western Thursday on the Comet diamond. The consolation bracket was held at MiraCosta and the Palomar horsehiders dropped a 3-1 nod to MiraCosta Friday and 5-3 decision to Riverside Saturday. Tomorrow the Comets will get another shot at Riverside, traveling up 395 for a 2 p.m. stint with theTigers. Friday MiraCosta will host the Comets in another re-match. As far as pitching, Palomar will boast both front-line starters and good depth to back them up. Eight righthanders and two southpaws are working for Clayton, although he has one problem . .

"Most of the pitchers are Freshmen and it'll take a while for them to get settled ," commented Clayton. He added that "In the tournament H was a matter of experienced sophomores being able to hit our first year players." Two of the Freshmen turned in commendable mound performances and the two may wind up carrying the load in the pitching department. Tom Johnson hurled six shutout innings in the opening game before retiring to the bench while Ernie Oliva went the full nine frames against MiraCosta. · Clayton, however, wasn't putting in the two on the spot, indicating that the other hurlers were very capable and definitely would be tested. Ed Worseck, Don Nelson, Greg Abney, Jeff Dawson, Stan Halprin, Mike Holland , Jerry Carpenter, and Nick Arcuri dot the mound. The two lefthanders are Carpenter and Arcuri. The infield for the Comets is quite solid and is anchored by Rick Adkins, a Pacific Southwest Conference all-star last year at shortstop.· Jim Dean is the third baseman while Jack Ashby. is at the other corner. The two freshmen are joined by sophomore Ken Dawson (second base) and Bob Sneed (catcher) to round-out the infield. "Our outfield isn't really set, the boys are quite equal," estimated Clayton. Those seeing outfield action in the tourney were Oliva, Tim Titus, Bill Briscoe. Jim Lessley, Mark Eldrige and Dean Smith.

Although Adkins and Dean have the reputation of bei_ng able to hit for power , Clayton said that because of the relatively over-all small size of the players, "We won't be a long ball hitting club, but hope to be consistant in hitting. " Clayton also pointed out that although the games were important, the team hasn't yet rounded into form imd was . confident the squad would be a contender. In the opener the Comets and Arizona team battled without scoring for seven innings before Western's ·Joe Surratt knocked a two run home against the tennis court fence at the 340-foot mark in right field. Carpenter, . taking over for Johnson in the sixth, suffered the loss while the only hitting the Comets were able to show was by Ashby, who got a double and two singles in four at-bats. Art Monje went the rout for Western squad,spacing seven hits and only one walk. MiraCosta collected four hits and one walk against Oliva. Meanwhile, the Comets were held to three singles and Dean's double by the Spartans' Mel Hazen. MiraCosta scored a run in the second, third, and seventh inning while Palomar scored a run in the seventh and ninth frames. In the battle for last place in the tournament Palomar looked like it would tear the game open in the top of the first . Ashby led off reaching first on an error and an infield single by Snead and sacrifice by Adkins put two runners in

Comet matmen beat Grossmont Wrestling coach Tony Lynds has his grapplers at full strength Wednesday for the first ime in nearly a month. The result was a convincing 27-15 win over Grossmont, a team which earlier in the year beat the Comets. Palomar is the defending co-championship team but has not lived up to the pre-season billing as the team to beat in the Pacific Southwest Conference and now have a 2-3 r ecord. Tomorrow the team travels to Imperial Valley College in a non-conference outing and will host San Diego City College Friday. At the 145 pound class, Jon Mitchell posted a 7-1 win but failed to reach his goal--to go the season without. a point being scored against him. In the 115 pound section Cris Cremen, who has recorded some of the fastest pins on record this year, was upset by Grossmont's Jim Howell, 8- 6. Another exicint match was between Palomar's Jim Dybka and Grossmont's Tom Neime as Dybka surrendered two points in the final ten seconds to be upset.

Roundballers eye win in Grossmont battle Tom Johnson hurls first pitch of the season in _game with Arizona Western in local tournament. Palomar lost the

game, 4-0, but Johnson tossed six strong shutout innings.

Other Palomar enteries are Rick Trestrail in the javelin; John Houchin . and Otto Ray in the shot; Pat Hallman and Mike Heredia in the high jump; and Henry Strandburg and Tom Reis in the long jump. Marrin claims that Quirk was ranked first in the nation for the high school decathlon and 36 out of all competitors in the nation this year. Weaker areas in the Comets'program are the sprint relays, long jump, pole vault and 440-yard dash, although Gary Bowker, Tom Reis , John Schnarr, Strandberg, Bielasz and Quirk will give full efforts in the categories. The meet will not include the javelin since the Southwest Conference isn't familiar with the event. Friday the squad will make another long trip , traveling to Mt.

Dean sent a blast heading over the fence for a home rtJD but the Riverside left fielder jumped over the fence and knocked the ball back into play as only one Palomar runner crossed the plate. Starter Ed Worseck tired and the Tigers scored in the middle frames to claim the 5-3 decision despite a ninth inning try by the Cornets.

sports scope By Rick Monroe

Tennis coach Ray Love and golf coach Ward Meyers would also like to see their teams mentioned. My solution will be to print articles aimed to inform the Palomar College student of material I feel will be most noteworthy, interesting, local and timely. Championship squads, record breaking performances and something as pertanent as the Palornar-MiraCosta Tournament would naturally get the top position but other coverage will be reported on as well, including "minor sports." With fine phtography and graphic arts departments plus and effort to produce good features, we hope the sports page will popular.

There was a baseball tournament beld over the weekend. Whether the headline at the top of this page was your first knowledge of this or you happen to be an avid follower of the sports scene, it really seems early for the national pastime. After all, less than a month ago the Super Bowl was played and it's just not baseball weather (for Californi~ anywaya c ouple of the tourney games were almost rained out). But , the spring sports program swung into action white The Telescope staff was adjusting to the semester. The sports spectrum is quite enlarged since basketball and wrestling are still on the calendar. It will be my policy to give the concluding winter teams less coverage and concentrate on baseball and track. Here anothe r issue arrises--which one to give the top billing? On the national sports coverage college track has been given more coverage than baseball, primarly because the top amature track athletes get their starts in the colleges. College baseball is probably less popular because the "name" playe rs are often signed as "Bonus Babies" right out of high school. Of the approximately 20 major baseball scouts present at the Palomar-MiraCosta Tournament over the weekend, none would go out on a limb on praising junior college baseball and certainlyfelt college baseball would not take the place of minor league baseball (as in football). However , the professionals did agree that more talent is being developed in the junior college progr am.

Baseball schedule

Palomar will be handicapped in the contest as their starting forward, Gary Farr, will be out of action due to a broken ankle he suffered in the Comets' clash with Southwestern last week. The Comets have lost their last two encounters ; the first to Southwestern :by the score 101-88 and the second to the league leading San Diego City Knights by a 102-93 margin. In the SDCC game Saturday night, the Cornets proved to be no pushover as they led through the first ten minutes of the initial half before falling b.ehind 20-19 when Charles Williams bagged two points. Palomar regained the advantage se conds later on a pair of free throws by guard John Thatcher and managed to hold the lead until Williams c ame through with a free throw to tie the score at 35-al\ with three and one half minutes left before intermis s ion. The locals trailed for the remainder of the first half and well irtto the second half. Palomar came to life with 7:30 left in the contest and trailing 83-71 when Mike Judd found the distance to tally 12 points in the next six minutes · to add with scoring_ from John Thatcher.. Rudy Waardenburg and Sam Blalock to pull within a 95-92 margin. However, the Knights managed to top the Comets' bid to claim the win. Leading scorers for the Comets were Judd with 33 points and Thatcher with 26. Palomar may have lost its last chance to gain a victory in the PSC Wednesday when they lost to Southwestern, the team they were previously tied with for fourth place. The Comets stayed with the Apaches through the first half and trailed by a mere one-point margin ( 49- 48 ) at halftime. But Palomar fell apart during the second half to lose 101-88.
