Young militants follow Mao says TV commentator Burke By Steven A. Krueger "The Pepsodent foreign policy isn't necessarily the best foreign policy," said television personality Albert Burke in a dramatic speech here Wednesday night. "Nations can't always smile their way through "trouble.~ He was referring to the opinion of an American student he saw on television in Britain.

Dr. Albert Burke, scientist, economist, educator, and commentator of the series

"Probe,~ spoke here Wednesday night on the theme "Education For What?"

Burke addressed a crowd of less than 200 in the student union. He is the producer of "The Cutting Edge" and "Probe", two television programs that espouse his somewhat angry conservative philosophy. He said, "Young militants in every revolution across the world follow the thinking of Mao Tse Tung: Politics comes from the barrel of the gun. F orce is politics, the most illiterate Laotian or Vietnamese knows that. Yet these young men and women of today think they can smile their way through trouble." He said that Americans don't realize


Innovative play opens spring drama season "Palomar's first drama effort of the spring semester, "A Taste of Honey," will take place beginning March 20 with a two week-end run ending March 29 . Director Buddy Ashbrook has expressed extreme enthusiasm of what he considers to be a "very strong cast. " There are to be several innovations added to the cast. For the first time in remembrance, a black man will be portrayed on the stage. Other new things to watch will be the roles of a homosexual young man and a drunken wastrel. "Greg Krueger will play the role of the black man, Jimmie. Besides acting and directing local theater productions, Greg is a veteran of Palomar productions ranging from last year's "Papa Is All" to his most recent venture, "The Shrike". Another old pro of the Palomar stage is Jim Southers, who has played many roles, the most recent being the lead

Alpha Nu plans elections, projects The Alpha Nu chapter of the Alpha Gamma Sigma Honor Society will hold it'e first meeting of the new semester Tuesday. The purpose of the meeting is to welcome new members and to explain the purpose of AGS. Also, it will be an organizational meeting for this semester and plans for election, committees, projects, and social activities will be brought up. All who receive a Dean's Letter in the mail are qualified for temporary membership. General requirements are a 3. 0 grade point average the previous semester in at least 12 units and 44 grade points. Anyone who qualifies for AGS is welcome a nd urged to attend the meeting and fill out a membership card. It will be held in room F- !2 at 11 a.m.

role in "The Old Lady Shows Her Medals." Southers plays the one - eyed, drunken wastrel, Peter. He is a theater arts major and plans to attend UCLA next year. One of the three new faces added to the drama lab belongs to Rosemary Schwartz, former secretary to Dr. Frederic Huber, president of the college. She resigned that job at the mid-term and is now continuing her education full time. Michelle Craig, another new face, is conside red a real "find" by director Ashbrook. She is new to Palomar this semester, having transferred in at the mid term break . Educated in Europe, enabling her to master quickly the British acce nt required of all the players, she will play the leading role of Jo. The sensitive role of Geoffrey, the young homosexual boy, has been given to Richard Creighton, It is possibly the most sympathetic part in the play, and must, obviously, be played with much care if it is to come out that way.

Rich has had little acting experience, but his determination and hard work are overcoming this lack. When not attending classes or rehearsing the play, Rich finds time to be a volunteer fireman. He hopes for an appointment to West Point after his graduation from Palomar. Norm Gaskins is again handling technical direction for the play. His scene des ign is in keeping with the naturalistic s tyle , where tiny details and accurate depiction supercedes design. Major assistants are Ruth Ann man, assistant director ; John Rabe, manager; David Jones, sound; O'Rand, lighting; Sylvia Olcott, tumes; and David Cable, publicity.

"When I was in Vietnam , I walked through·some villages there . Thepeople saw me and realized that they didn't have to die before the age of 35, that they didn't have to be hungry, they didn't have to go without essential clothing. And by doing so, I have been a disruptive influence." He said that the basic aim of the United States hasn't changed in almost 200 years. "Those things laid out in the 52 words of the preamble to the constitution still.. apply. We aren't any closer to the full realization of many of the ideals we strive for today than we were then , but that doesn't mean we should stop. "The best government is the one that comes the closest to perfection and works the hardest for perfection," he said.

Campus automotive shop yields highly trained repair specialists By Tom Anderson "Auto service bays are more like electronics labs and the cars and trucks are getting more complex every year, " according to Mr. Larry Bertram of the auto shop. Located in the far corner of the campus the shop is better equipped than any in the area Bertam said. At a total cost of $250,000 the shop was built and equip~ed with tools and machinery. Bertram said .that there isn't anything lacking in the · shop which is needed for car service and repair. Some equipment in the shop includes a valve grinding machine, a boring bar, a steam cleaner, brake drum lathes, a

wheel alignment machine and many more. Since the shop is so complete it allowF< students to use the most advanced methods in car seryices and repair. Discussing the goals of the auto shop program, Bertram said, "Our primary funcion is to produce students with a saleable skill. In this particular course we are turning out people who go into the auto service program as an apprentice. With the background in this program they will move much faster in the trade than a person without it." Currently the auto shop is offering a two year program which teaches the students the most advanced methods of car service and repair. At this time there are approximately 60 students in the program. Students take the two year program in four parts, auto electronics and tuneup, engine overhaul, wheel alignment and brakes , and auto. · matic transmissions. Bertram said that "the biggest problem is finding a way to attract the intelligent, mechanically minded youth to the auto service trade. This is being done here by presenting the students with a well equipped modern shop to train in an u~ to--date program of instruction. Bertram said that many students work part time in the field and then go full time when they finish the course. Qpportunities in auto repair and service art excellent according to Bertram. He said t hat a good service and repair man generally earns $800 a month while some go as high as $ll00 a month. He commented that by the year 1975 there will be a little more than half enough mechanics if more people aren' t brought into the field than there are now.

He attacked the Peace Movement of today by saying that his generation had a Peace movement, of which he was a part. "We took the Oxford Pledge: a pledge against war of any kind. Every year we'd go out and plant trees as a pledge against war. Yet World War II came anyway and our trees didn't do much to stop it." He was also critical of the mass media for its failure to tell it like it is. After returning from an 11 month trip to Europe, he found his son laughing heartily at Hogan'sHeroes, a prisoner of

war camp comedy. He specifically attacked the following: Hogan's Heroes as "A betrayal to those men who marched down the Bataan Pennisula to prisoner of war camps. Many of them can't say what they think about the show--they didn't come out. They died there ." McHale's Navy: "This show shows how men in the uniform of their country serve in war time--doesn't it!" Gomer Pyle: Shows what Marines have fought and died for throughout history. "Many people criticize our country for throwing our power around and sticking our nose into other nation's private matters," he continued. "They forget that if it weren't for our medicines and pesticides making the life span for most people double what it was 50 years ago, there wouldn't be as many people in these foreign countries. Unfortunately, people in many underdeveloped countries are hungrier than they were 50 years ago. But if we had let them die of sickness, do you think there would have been peace in the world?" He opened and concluded his speech with the statement that we here in America view the happenings in other countries as though they were from another planet. "We must learn from history's basic lesson: no country can exist believing that the problems and actions of other countries have no effect on our country." Burke's speech was part of the community lecture series presented by the community services office of Dean Theodore Kilman. The next speaker in the series will be May 7 at 10 a.m. featuring famed liberal columnist Art Hoppe.

Desert climate bears fruit for ba all ea After a successful desert jaunt over the weekend, the Palomar College baseball team returns home to host College of the Desert today. The Comets defeated COD last Friday, 11-4. Don Nel son pitched for the first five innings without yielding a hit. Ernie Oliva relieved Nelson and gave up two hits in one third of an inning before he was relieved by DaveSanchez, who a llowed one hit over the r e mainder of the game. Saturday, the Comets played a double header with Imperial Valley College winning both games, 5- 0 and 3- 2. Dennis Melton went the distance for the Comets in the first game yielding only four hits. The Comet batting attack was alive as they rapped out 12 hits. In the second game, Ernie Oliva was the starting pitcher and gave up five hits before being relieved by Sanchez in the fifth inning. Sanchez came into the game with the bases load ed and proceeded to get the Comets out of the inning. He late r sacrificed in the winning run. Sanchez gave up only one hit through the remainder of the game .

Poggi offers new bat As surely as spring follows winter, the baseball season has arrived . And with the new season has come a new kind of baseball bat designed and created by Morris Poggi of Oceanside. Poggi 's new bat differs from conventional bats by the grooves on the bat handle, from where he gets the name for the bat: "Groovy Grip". He claims that the grooves prevent bat slippage during hot days when players~ palms sweat.

Powerful Arizona trackmen compete here tomorrow Respected track and field power Glendale, Arizona, is slated to meet the local spike rs tomorrow. A formidable team at worst, the out-of -state team should give the Comets their roughest pre-league encounter. Last Wednesday, the Comet thinclads went into the PSC Relays like the Charge of the Light Brigade- - with great efforts but heavy losses. The fleet hurdling quartet of Tom Ries, Mike Quirk, David Whittier, and Len Thompson captured a school record and lost a race. Beaten by Mesa (who ran in another heat), the Palomar team set a new mark of 58.9 seconds in the 480 shuttle hurdles. Taking home first-place trophies for Palomar were the two-mile relay team (expected) and Don Tucker in the shot put (unexpected). Putting together a winner for Palomar in the two-mile relay were runners Ron Figueroa, Al Stover, Manuel Garcia, and Pancho Enriquez. Head track coach Doc Marrin remarked that for the Comets, this race was the "highlight of the running events.'' The time on that race: 8 minutes, 10.9 second s . Don Tucker, a freshman from Vista High, put the 16- pound shot an amazing 48 feet l l/ 4 inches. The school record is only four inches farther -- a distance set by Doug Price in 1968. All totalled, Gross mont won the meet with 90 points, followed by Mesa with 77. San Diego City barely edged Palomar for third, 52 112 to 50 1/2. Last, of course , was Southwestern, with a total of 29 . The outstanding relay of the meet was Gross mont's sprint medley team, who c ame through with a new meet record of 3 minutes, 30.4 seconds. Judged the bes t competitor in the field events was Arnie Robinson of Mesa, who leaped to a new meet record of 47 feet, 6 1/ 4 inches.
