Dr. Frederick R. Huber, Palomar president, commented on the situation. "Naturally I'm quite disappointed. What's tragic is that there was such a small turnout for the number of eligible voters. But I feel that this is in no way an indication of the actual support for Palomar College, when only 28- per

cent of the electorate turned out. It is indicative of the interest of those who did turn out but not necessarily of those who didn't. "What happened was an expression of displeasure at the prospect of a property tax increase , even in the small amount called for. "I've stated before that I personally don't feel that the property tax is a proper source of income, but it's our only recourse. And the need still exits. "Things will worsen. But I only hope that the citizenry will somehow come to realize that the way to support an educational program is not to vote 'no,' and that the Board and Administration have been on record for many years as supporting long-range financingplan . "We feel our needs are justified, and we can't do anything else but present them to the public in this manner." Dr. Huber said that any plans for a future election will have to be discussed by the Board. "We'll now be in the process of developing our first budget for

Money-eating machine causes costlyexperiment

A costlypsychologyexperiment by two students has yielded some interesting results. The two students , Dana Kindrick and Jim Smith. conducted their experiment three weeks ago from an observation area in the back of a truck. It all began, ·sa id Kindrick, when a friend of his placed 25 cents in the candy machine in the engi neering wing. Nothing happened . The friend rocked and pounded on the machine but with no result. So he and Kindrick put' a sign on the machine which read: "This

n:ach1ne IS a money eater--use at own nsk. '' In the following half hour, six students read the sign, thought a moment, andput their money in. Only one took the hint from the sign and saved his money. Kindrick said that 95 cents was lost by _stud~nts who wanted to gamble on the mac?rne. Invanably, the students placed thel r money In the slot, pulled handle and proceed~d to shake, rattle, and sock the offendmg money grabber. "It would have been a perfect set-up for Candid Camera," said Smith. The results. as interpreted. prove why people gamble with slot machines in Nevada, agreed Smi th and Kindrick. "They know they will probably lose their money. Everybody knows it. but they don't pay any attention and go right ahead and pour the cash in." said Smith. "If the maintenance man from A.R.A. hadn't come. there is no telling how much money students would have lost over the course of a day." When the repairman did come. the original composer of the note got his · money back. According to the repairman. the rest went to the company as a donation to the ''Repair A Machine" fund.

The name of Phil H. Putman, former president of Palomar College, will grace the new student center at Rio Hondo Junior College in Whittier next month. The sparkling new facility will be dedicated April 24, a·l most one year after the Putnam Memorial Library on the Palomar campus. Putnam's lifelong career of service began 60 years ago in Custer, South Dakota, a Black Hills town that was the scene of the 1874 gold rush. In 1931 he was g r ad u ate d from Black Hills Teachers College with his bachelor's degree and a state football championship honor. Mrs. Putnam recalls that "he was always a great sportsman," and believed in a strong athletic program. Mrs. Putnam, who works in the main library, also especially remembers Nove m be r 25, 1932 - the date of her marriage to Putnam. Following a stint as a high school. superintendent in South Dakota: Putnam moved west to Oregon with his wife where the young educator earned his masters at the University of Oregon in 1937, and later his doctorate at Stanford. Putnam left his position as Oregon superintendent of s c h o o 1 s to enter the army as a private in 1943, to emerge as a lieutenant in 1945, eventually retiring as a major in the reserves. Following his military service, hereturned to education and was instrumental in the establishment of Oregon's first junior college. The college, Vanport Junior College is now a four-year institution, Portland State. Then in 1952,

NEWS BRIEFS Medical Technology inclined students are now being offered a $500 scholarship by the Nation a 1 Committee for Careers in Medical Technology. In order to qualify, students must be eligible to enter a college curriculum as a full-time junior. They must have had enough science to com p 1 e t e their academic requirements for medical technology (which includes 16 semester :hours each in chemistry and biological sciences and a course in mathematics) before entering their fourth or final year of clinical training in a hospital school of Medical Technology accredited by the American Medical Association.

Putnam became president of Palomar. Mrs. Putnam recalls, "when we came here, the place looked like a Mexican labor camp." Under Putnam's able leadership, however, Palomar's first permanent buildings were erected. When he departed in 1956, the new college was thriving. Putnam next lent his talents to Ventura Junior College, which he left in 1960 for Compton Junior Co 11 e g e. He was engrossed in his last assignment, the new Rio Hondo Junior College in Whittier, when he passedawayonOctober 13, 1966. All who knew him would have to agree that Putnaq~ left behind him more than an entry in'"Who's Who.'1 "Anybody was at home with him," Mrs. Putnam reminisced, "his greatest attribute was his love for people."

next year for presentation to the Board. The election resultswill be reflected in that budget. Needless to say, there'll be many things we won't be able to do. "The Administrative staff will meet to discuss what curtailments will be presented to the Board to offset the results of the tax election. Curtailments in the fact sheet are definitely going to come about, and there will be others," stated Dr. Huber. Plans for actions resulting from the loss of the tax election will be discussed when the "Administrative members meet to discuss what curtailments will be presented to the Board to offset the result of the tax election," Dr. Huber continued. A meeting is tentatively scheduled next week. Prior to the election a "Palomar College Election Facts " sheet was distributed explaining the present college situation. Contained on the sheet were the consequences of the tax issue failure. "If we must curtail the programs and activities which are assets to Palomar and the community," he said , "it erodes the purpose of tliis institution." Specific details cited for curtailment include: 1) The Registered Nurse AA degree program will not expand. The program was started last year to meet the area's decline in the number of nurses available at local medical institutions. 2) The planned Dental Assistant program will not be expanded to meet the number of interested students who have doubled during the year. 3) Nineteen additional instructors needed will not be hired. The school will not be able to open additional classes to meet the student load in business, geology, English, math, physical education, social science and physical science. "Some students will not be able to complete their programs in the normal two year period because not enough basic classes will be available to them," Dr. Huber stated. 4) Equipment breakdowns and lack of replacement funds will hinder laboratory and vocational classes. 5) Bus services will be cut back. 6) Adult Educational courses will be reduced or discontinued. 7) Funds to make up the anticipated reduction in Federal and State f u n d s are not available . The accredition of the college is dependent on the continuance of financial· support •.It may not be renewed if there is a curtailment of enrollment, course offering, quality standards and service to the community.
