Dance policy approval motion tabled to Monday's council meeting Completing about one month's w o r kJ Palomar's recently formed Dance Policy Committee brought its results to the StUdent Council last Monday. Ron Simecka, committee chairman, asked Council to approve the policy so that it could be sent on to the Administrative Council for further approval. Consideration of approval of the dance policy was tabled until next Monday so that councilmen could thoroughly study the paper and bring up definite ideas and objections for discussion. The committee composing this policy is headed by Ron Simecka who is also on the judicial committee and is the ASB commissioner of pep. The policy attempts to handle the problems that arise at the dances. This will be the first dance policy at Palomar. After complete interviews with Dr. Fredrick R. Huber, Dr. John R. Schettler and Dean Robert E. Bowman, all that could be determined as a written dance policy was the statement that "The dances will be given for the ASB card holding members of Palomar College and their guests, only." Other persons who are permitted to ~ nter the dances constitute the accep~ance of liability by the sponsors, club fficers, and their parents, of any and a ll actions that occur during dances. he school's three m i 11 ion dollar liability insurance policy is automatically void when the first person walks through the door that is not an ASB card holder or his guest. The dance policy includes portions on scheduling procedure of activities, financial background 1 chaperones, s ecurity guards, available equipment, dealing with production companies, c hoice of dates, smoking and publicity. There are 11 me m be r s of this c ommittee. They are Ron Simecka, John Robirds, Bruce Pedit, Janis Johnson, Kim Clark, Jan Donoho, Diana Houser, Kareh Schmidt, George Rotcheck and Linda Welch. Any suggestions for the policy can be g i v e n to any of the committee members. Several council members objected to the clause allowing students of 17 years of age or older to attend the campus dances. Rita Sch,midt and Patti Russo said that the idea behind the clause was to net more profits for the clubs sponsoring the dances. Most council members agreed

that club sponsored dances should be held for Palomar students only. Another objection was to the statement that dances be scheduled two weeks apart. Simecka explained that due to the frequency of dances he I d this semester, many dances did not receive the expecte d attendance. He said that dances were not always working out as well as they should and that clubs often lost out financially because dances were scheduled so often, with two on one weekend at times.

JAJC honors Scope members The Telescope staff returned from Journalism Association of Junior College Conference with two awards recently. In the mail-in advance contests Buzz Ponce won a third place in sports newsfeature and Mike Conlen received a second place in cartoon. Both works were printed in fall editions of The Telescope.

Awards were given in large and small school division for all competition categories.

Final performances of BertoltBrecht's anti-war spectacle "Mother Courage" will be staged tonight and tomorrow night, with a matinee scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. Following the canteen wagon of Mother Courage across Europe during the 30 Years War, the abstract, modernistic play satirizes the suffering and destruction of war in general. Written by Brecht, an avowed Marxist, in t he l ate 1930's, many examples of c orruption, profiteering and moral decay a re illustrated in the two hour, 15 minute play. Starring Jessica McNames as t he resolute Mother Courage, t he cast numbers about 40 roles, a large number for a college production. Bill Lehrke plays the gallant son Eilif. B ob Hutchings portrays the simple son, Swiss Cheese. Kattrin, the mute daughter of Mother Courage is played by Danie lle Corn. Other major members of the cast include S. Scott McDonald as the Protestant chaplin; Jeannette des E r mia as Yvette Pottier, the vivacious prostitute : and Verne Pershing in several roles, including the opening role of the Protestant recruiting officer. Brecht's style of theatre differs radically from the established form of stageaudience relationship . Whereas in past productions, the audience has been the silent witness to events on the raised platform~ Mother Courage" involves each member of the audience through frequent asides and stark realism of events. Slides, for instance, foretell the events of each scene and proceeding each musical number. Several songs support the play, all presented in an abstract manner. Brecht believed that, for ut~ost effect, music should be uncomplimentary. Pleasant melodies are paired with unpleasant lyrics and vice-versa. Accompanying music is used mostly to set mood and suggest off-stage events., with little use in actual musical presentation. Scene design is by Norman Gaskins, with lighting by Michal O'Rand. Direction is by Frank White, his final effort before leaving Palomar for the professional stage this summer. Admission is 75¢ for students withASB cards, and $1.50 without. Curtain time is 8 p. m. for the two remaining evening shows and 2 p. m. for the matinee.

NEWS BRIEFS The Newman Club will sponsor the fifth Inter-Campus Dance tonight here in the Student Union. Featuring the "Glass Whip," the dance will begin with the "Purple Dove." Admission for the 8 p.m. to midnight dance is $1.50 per person.

ASB council passes ICC Constitution The first Inter-Club Council Constitution was passed last Monday by the Student Council. First conceived by candidates for the ASB vice-presidency this semester, the constitution replaces the ICC Statement of Policy that has been in use since spring 1960.

"Pomona College has expressed its desire to pattern its Inter-Club Council after Palomar's," added Hauptman. The new constitution provides for a vice-president, secretary and treasurer; a quorum; and impeachment of officers.

By David Conrad Whether it be bad weather or noise, Palomar's aim is to get rid of both. Take five ordinary common houseflies, unveil the beasts into Palomar's ten-year-old geodesic dome, and imagine the German Luftwaffe back in 1941. This is a highly exaggerated comparison of the acoustics in Palomar's aluminum landmark. But one should acknowledge the near impression of its echo. In addition to the chrome dome's constant echo, it also is capable of a built-in shower stall on rainy days. Well, after ten years of sitting on its campus, Palomar's giant and beautiful rainy, echo chamber will soon cease to leak and echo. •we hope to kill two birds with one stone this July," exclaims Dr. John D. Schettler, ASB financial advisor. Plans have been made so that bids will be offered by the various contractors doing the reconstruction on the dome. The issue will be further discussed later this month at the Board meeting. The acou!;!tical work, in addition to the hole patching, will cost $25,000. Being a weather and, especially, noise nuisance, the dome's noise actually hurts Palomar academically" in that it prohibits the function of extra classes to be held inside, says head basketball coach Joe Brennan . This can be seen by its echo as Brennan said he has had people as near as five feet away from him who were not able to hear him. He also said that it hampered school pep or spirit in that it riddles instructors while teaching, spectators and cheerleaders while yelling, and school bands while playing. The main reason why these matters were not attended to in the past was that in 58', the 575 diamond-paneled dome was erected for a lump sum of $265,000 which was _about two-t.lrlrds the cost . of a regular gymnasiun:L So, in order to save money, the acoustics were left out.

With the close of regular baseball games Wednesday, Coach Jim Clayton has announced a weekend series of practice games. The Comets will oppose the Pala Indian All-Stars at 1 p.m. on the local diamond and the winner will go against the Tijuana Raider~ at the same time Sunday. Sponsored by the Palomar Community Action Council, the games should provide a fun atmosphere to what has otherwl s e been a distasteful campaign. The locals got off to a bad start, going into Pacific Southwest Conference action with a 4-6 record. The squad then got hot by winning 5-of-7 at the start of loop play, but since then have lost nine league and two non-league frays without a win. Wednesday's loss at Southwestern was an indication of the many ways the team has lost. P a 1om a r outhit the Apaches 15-8, but came up shy with the final score 7-6. Tom Johnson was the losing pitcher in a rout going performance. He struck out six and walked two. Palomar went ahead 4-3 by scoring a trio of runs in the third inning. Singles by Sam Blalock, Gil Pumar, Mike Garver, Kent Dawson and Bill Briscoe accounted for the runs . A run scoring double by the Apaches Ken Ohlendorf in the ninth inning was the deciding blow. Pumar went 4-for-4 and Dawson 4-for-5 to pace the locals. Saturday Mesa invaded Cometland and smashed the Comets, 13-1. The winners scored two runs in each of the first two innings, one in both the fourth and fifth and five in the seventh. Sam Blalock's ground rule double to left was followed one out later in the fifth with another double to left by Greg Abney for the only Palomar run. Gil Pumar had a double and singles by Jack Ashby, Mike Garver and Rick Adkins rounded out the Comets' attack. Ernie Oliva started on the mound but was hit for eight safeties while striking out five and walking 11. Only two of the 13 runs he allowed were earned. Ed Worseck turned in a stout relief stint, pitching two and one-third innings of hitless ball. He walked none and struck out one.
