New tax campaign approach
Telescopes to be given to voters Publicity for next Tuesday's tax override will be approached from a different angle than in the past. "We are concerned with getting the facts--as many as we can--to the public," said Dr. Frederick R. Huber, Palomar's president. Dr. Huber spoke at the May 20 Student Counci 1 meeting and described his plan for disseminating information to the public. "Our secret weapon in this campaign will be the Telescope," the president revealed to the Council. "We plan to print about 10,000 copies of the Telescope filled with facts on the tax override. These papers will be distributed throughout the community. " This override edition of the Telescope will be published Friday and distributed over the weekend. The InterClub Council is heading distribution under the direction of ASB vice-president Paul Hauptman. The issue will also contain results of tomorrow's ASB and cheerleader election. Tuesday's election will be the college's third attempt to push over a tax override within one and one-half years. The proposal, labeled Proposi-
tion R, will be voted upon along with state and national issues in the state's primary. Proposition R calls for a 19-cent tax increase for operational funds which are needed to cope with the increasing instructional costs resulting from a continual yearly enrollment increase. This ever-growing number of students has made necessary additional instructors on the staff. Nineteen more teachers are needed by September. "If the tax override passes, we will begin hiring these needed instructor immediately," said Dr. Huber. "Wemaynot be able to get them all right away, however. It may take us until February to complete the staff." A school nurse is one of the personnel needed by the college. Palomar has been without a nurse since the resignation of Melinda Horakh in June 1967. Dr. Huber said that the college "could not find another nurse to take Miss Horakh's place." It was also discovered that the budget "could not handle the hiring of any more school personnel." Funds secured from the tax override's passage will also be used to reiJ].ace obsolete equipment. Some campus equip-
tnent has not been replaced for 10 years. Updated equipment is needed to maintain academic standards acceptable to four-year colleges to which ~ students WQuld eventually transfer. Another reason for the tax increase in the local area is that both state and federal aid to education will be cut in the very near future. Enrollment increase necessitates additional non-teaching personnel for clerical and other related office work. "Salaries for this added personnel must be derived from the override," the president said. Statistically, expected enrollment will be a 15 to 20 per cent jump over last fall's. The number of students increased 20 per cent last fall over September 1966. The tax would cost the average homeowner about $9.50 a year more. It will be levied on a $100 valuation for part or all of a five-year period. Figures are based on a $20,000 property which is assessed by the county at the normal one-fourth value.

the Telescope on Tuesdays, promises the following platform: 1) making the free speech area truly free. 2) push for the changing of the current controversial speaker policy so that anyone may speak here. 3) make a poster policy that assures free speech is not impaired. 4) call for student budget autonomy and revisions in ASB fund allocations. 5)instigate an "open dance" poliqy, with admittance open to anyone. 6) try to speed legislative procedures. 7) push to maintain non-mandatory ASB cards on a state level and eliminate administrative pressure applied to non-buyers. 8) push for changing of current state code concerning partisan literature on campus. Alan Rathje, a freshman majoring in agricultural economics, is the president of the Christian Science Organization on campus. He feels he represents a "substantial segment of the students." He proposes to tighten the budget and to promote better communications oetween students and theh governmeut. He would also like to see more in-

Ron Simecka, lists in his past experience as the following: vice-president of Circle K, vice-president of the Pep Club, chairman of homecoming ,ceremonies committee, chairman of the homecoming bonfire committee, present ASB Commissioner of Pep and chairman of the ASB committee on dance policy.

ASB treasurer Kathy Taff, presently ICC treasurer, said her platform would include "a tight budget, distributing a copy of expenditures to students, a copy of the budget available to all." Karen Schmidt, presently ASB secretary, says she is a member of the Newman Club and Young Democrats. ASB secretary Linda Welch is running unopposed for secretary. She promises to keep "comprehensive minutes with no typographical errors." Sophomore Class president Joe Wu will run unopposed for the office of Sophomore Class president. Wu plans to "continue the book swap, make Camp Cuyamaca an unforgetable experience and woJ'k on the student handbook and teacher evaluation this summer." * * * from Poway, Jan Harless, freshman announced yesterday that she is rt1nning a write-in campaign for cheerleader. Previously, only four had signed up.

Eight vie for four CoWlcil positions as ASB representatives-at-large Eight candidates are vying for four seats as representatives-at-large in tomorrow's election. Dan Connelly, a freshman pre-dental student, is treasurer of Newman Club and earned a place on the Dean's List last semester. He says that there is -"currently inadequate representation (on the Council)." If elected, he promises to "fully represent the students of Palomar." Tom Galloway, a freshman English major, proposes more personal investigations of ASB issues, more activities in the field of assemblies, improvement of teacher evaluation, and "closer financial policies." He is seeking office to "restore judgemental integrity to the ASB Council." He was on the Dean's List last semester, and is the president-elect of Circle K for the fall. Tom Leonard, a sophomore pre-law major, is running to lend more effective control of ASB funds to the student body and to reinstate the humanities lecture series next fall. Jerry Nicholas, page one editor of
policy committee and on the new ICC constitution. · "Student government at Palomar does not involve or interest enough students. This is largely the fault of officers and representatives, not the students. "While not being 'power hungry,' the ASB Council should assume more duties than it has previously. Officers should work for students first, then administration, faculty, never personal interes-t. "I am against petty politics on campus. We should work hard and in unison. Everyone's views should be respected and considered." Ron Tracy, Navy veteran of action in South Vietnam and the Dominican Republic, feels he offers students "mature and objective representation to the students." The pre-med student "wants to establish greater rapport between student officers and the student body. I am strongly opposed to rubber stamp leadership in any form. • The election issues have gone basically unchanged in past campaigns mainly because past candidates would stand behind an issue until such time, having been elected,, would back down under fire from the administration." Jerry Poduska is also running for ASB president. However, he has not :filed the proper information sheet, ASB vice- president

Spring fashions in bloom on campus By Clarrisa Wisniewski If you're a girl and especially if you're a California girl, you can look forward to being a fashion pace-setter this spring. Fashion is focused on various looks this spring, and the girl of the West can enjoy them all and wear them with the knowledge that she is what's happening.
The trend is toward the "all girl" look, a delicate mixture of the romantic and the sophisticated. After having experienced the mod "scrambled look," the slender "Twiggy" look, the "hiphugger" craze and the bold "military" look, certainly many girls agree that the new "lady look" is welcome, refreshing change. Accenting frilly blouses with slightly gathered skirts , and wide belts, the r o rn antic look ranks high on the femininity scale. Soft paste 1 s and new acetate fabrics make being a girl so much more. A question arises with the choice of hair styles with the new look. Curls, and lots of them, are the vogue for short as well as long hair. Girls possessing long tresses can look forward to accenting their locks with bows, scarves and barretts. The topic of the proper hemline length has been debated continuously. However, the general concensus is that the girl with a true California spirit will never sacrifice her comfort for conformity. The girl of the West has been spoiled by her casual environment. With pleasant weather almost all year long, she can expect to be in comfortable apparel all year round. The sporty-fun tctel} of the- surfer look
of days gone by started the casual nature of apparel. The ruling look of the California world has been "mini" for some time now and the lack of the "Bonnie and Clyde" look here could be an indication of its impractical nature in the world of the California girls . By no means does this indicate a complete absence of the "Bonnie and Clyde" look. Certainly there are a few indications of the fad catching on. But a fad it will be, intended prirnarialy for fun and variation. Floral printed dresses in vivid colors, so inviting to the fling of spring, are always popular and always in good taste. Accessories can make all the difference in a simple look and a really "smart" look. Shoes are catering to our every need. Never before has there been such style and color variety in footwear. By taking advantage of the boundless variety of costume jewelry, a girl can accent her refined features of hands, always in the spotlight. With the vanishing of the "littlegirl" look and all its yokes and flairs, a new more mature way to look sweet and harmless has arisen. This can be attained through cuffs and collars, contrasting in color to the body of a dress. Big bows at the neck are very cute and school-girlish. So--for all those gals who hated the looks that made them look like competitors with the guys, now is the time to be glad you were born a girl. The guys have always been in favor of true femininity in women's fashions, and no time is better than now to see it's not a bad idea at all--for girls .

Telescope Issue not worth wra11ping fish in

Editor: Your Tuesday, May 21 edition of the Telescope wasn't worth wrapping fish in! Not only did your article capsulizing General English's appearance miss the point of his entire presentation, but you also quoted him seriously out of obntext in the last paragraph. You 'gave the impression that it was the general himself who made the last statement, when in fact it was not. Nor was it the statement of a fellow commander; but rather one made by a Vietnamese general in reference to his own troops. Pertaining to both the "Marine Corps KILLS ]\)fen Sign" article and the editorial bySteveSchneider, let's examine the facts: 1) General English was an invited guest. 2) His presence was voted upon favorably by t~e ICC which represents the majority of the students. 3) This man has devoted almost all of his adult life to serving his country, and his rank signifies that he has done that in a most commendable way. 4) Without courageous men like him, my children might today be raising the flag of the
As CeCe sees it
Freshmen will suffer next year By Cecelia Lodico First year students here have a very important role to play this next week. And how well they act their part will have a grave bearing on the condition of this college, not only next year, but also in years following. The first issue that freshman (as well as sophomores) must take seriously is tomorrow's ASB elections. Whoever wins will head the ASB, spend its money and make or break its laws. Freshmen must study each and every candidate and his platform, constantly remembering that next year's ASB officers should be ones who will work for the students. If the freshmen are satisfied with the way government was run this year, then they must make sure the fall's officers keep that government intact. On the other hand, if disagreement with this year's politics is the feeling, freshmen must be sure that as sophomores they will force their student leaders to conform to their wishes. Most importantly, freshmen must keep in mind that they will be still a more integral part of the college in the fall. Therefore, they should vote wisely and with discretion tomorrow. Secondly, and certainly of utmost importance, is next Tuesday's tax override which goes before the public in the primaries. The majority of the sophomores are
being graduated in three weeks. It is the freshmen who will suffer if the override fails. The freshmen will have to endure the crowded classrooms, lack of teachers, split day and evening sessions, absence of new curriculum, Saturday morning physical education classes, cramped registration scheduling and the other results failure of the override entails. Graduating sophomores are leaving. Only the freshmen will be around to see this institution recede in its educational standards after• 20 years of continual growth--if the override fails. Consequently, it is these same freshmen who can help prevent such a disaster that override failure assures. Palomar's president Dr. Frederick R, Huber, has said that he wants "the facts--as many as possible--brought to the public." Distribution of thousands of copies of a special tax overide edition of the Telescope will take place this weekend. Unless these freshmen wish to see tllis school go downhill, they will assist in this mass rnanuever to bring "the facts ... to the public." Because the freshmen are returning next fall, it should be they who carry the brunt of work in this all-our•effort ·to get the tax override passed. Freshmen will naturally be assisted by sophomores. And many of these gradu-
ating students want the override to pass so badly they can practically taste it. Even though they won't be free to enjoy the benefits a successful tax override will bring, many sophomore have worked hard to maintain Palomar's fine standards and want the same for future Palomar students. Freshmen must choose their next year's leaders with discretion tomorrow and work with this semester's leaders for a successful override election. For it is only the first year student who will receive the effect of the outcome . of both issues, whether the result be · good or bad.
Memorial service set Three former Palomar College students who died while in the U. S. military service in Vietnam will be OOPM"ed here in ceremonies tomorrow. In a program sponsored by the college Vererans Club, these n a rn e s will be added to the flagpole memorial plaque of former students who died in service to their country: 2nd Lt. John P. Marken. J!'., Escondido, US Marine Corps, killed Jan. 19, 1968, in Vietnam. PFC Stanley W. Behm, Escondido, U S Army, killed May 15, 1968 in Vietnam. Sgt. Eugene R. Tactay, Jr., Escondido, U S Army, killed Oct. 30, 1966, in Vietnam.
"rising sun" or be saying "Heil Hitler" instead of the Pledge of Al~egiance. 5) The place of the General's presentation was open to all who wished to question him or to air their opinions. 6) And most important, discretion is the better part of valor. Certainly our P and F's cannot be so naive as to believe that the Marine Corps formulates national policy; nor can they honestly feel that marines kill in a wanton, reckless manner. As General English so vividly pointed out, we are not living in an idealistic world. I wonder how long our precious freedoms would remain part of our way of life if every marine, soidier, sailor and airman buried his weapon of war--not too much later th~tn the turning of the last spadeful of dirt, unfortunately. Such would not lead to peace, except under a banner of the hammer and sickle. As a student I am appalled at the lack of discretion and disgusted by the crude attempt to embarrass a man whose deeds over the past 30 years. in war and peace, would cause a fellow ,patriot to swell with pride at
Student works in . literary magazine FOCUS, Palomar's feature magazine, is being distributed nextweek. rt is free to all ASB card holders. The FOCUS staff hopes to cover such topics as Bob Thoreson, the associated student body president; the controversial draft and Politicial Activism in their second bi-semesterly edition. These aspects will wrap-up their ideas in the first issue that covers teacher evaluation, the tax override and Miss Louise Deiner's job Personnel Service among many other campus aspects. Bravura, local literary magazine, will come out sometime during the last week of finals. "It's a literary magazine that offers creative writers at Palomar College a chance to show their work." said Cnme Jackson, head of the English Department. The magazine will cover the award winning literature that was submitted by various Palomar students in a recent contest. The contest, pertaining to poems and short stories, was open to all students at Palomar and was judged by a panel of three. The judges were Jackson; Mrs. Barbara Corcoran. English instructor and Cecelia Lodico, editorin-chief of The Telescope. The contests were awarded $40 for first place, $25 for second, and $20 for third place in both poetry and prose.
his presence. As part of the majority who desired his presence, I had every right to hear him without being subjected to a earnpus incident. And , as a marine, I take personal offense at what they proclaim and the meaningof that proclamation~ Yes, the students of Palomar have "free speech ... so long as actions of the minority do not shame and embarrass the majority of us. Shameful and embarrassing, however, was that sign ... and at that point it infringed Jlpon our rights and freedoms. Or are our rights supposed to ]::>e disregarded in this instance? As a matter of interest, last year the automobile took more lives than the Marine Corps in three wars. Why don't our P and F's undertake a campaign against it? H, Pinto, Jr.
!Rafferty to speakl Dr. Max Rafferty, state superintendent of public instruction, will speak today at 10:30 a.m. in P-32 as a candidate for the United States Senate.

'Scope to voters (Continued from p. 1) are -included in the tax district. Tentative cutbacks in the budget would include the adult education program which is being reduced by 70 per cent. Consequently, some regular day classes will have to be given at night. Split sessions of day and evening classes are estimated to be in store for nearly 800 students if the override should fail. An additional 300 students will be able to obtain night classes only. It is quite probable that physical education classes will have to be held on Saturdays, because they will not fit into the regular day schedule. No adult education classes for noncredit students would be offered in the summer. No new curriculum _programs could be started. Palomar's recent nursing education class would continue its one class in the fall. But no new students could begin the course with a second class as originally planned. Time for registering in the fall would be condensed. No adult wishing to take 10. or less units could be accepted after September 10. School bus service will be discontinued.
