'Taste of Honey' will open run next Thursday Rehearsals are now in progress for Shelagh Delaney's modern drama, "A Taste of Honey," which will begin a seven night run at Palomar March 20 at 8 p.m. in the drama lab. The first drama effort of the spring semester, "A Taste of Honey" is being directed by Mr. Buddy Ashbrook and boasts a cast of five. Greg Krueger, veteran of "The Shrike" last semester, will play the part of the Negro seaman, Jimmie. Jim Southers , who played the lead in "The Old Lady Shows Her Medals," plays the one-eyed, drunken wastrel, Peter. Rosemary Schwartz will play the part of the mother, and Michelle Craig, a transfer student from Sacramento, will play the part of the girl. The sensitive role of Geoffrey, the young homosexual boy, has been given to Richard Creighton. Rehearsals for "A Taste of Honey," to be presented beginning March 20,

Speaker policy approved Palomar College's role as a place of free expression was affirmed by the Board of Governors in their meeting Tuesday night. The Board voted to approve the revised controversial speaker policy that will make it easier for clubs to present controversial speakers to the students. The Board considered the proposal for more than a month before taking the action Tuesday night. Under the new speaker policy, clubs or organizations presenting controversial speakers would not be obliged to present a speaker of the opposite persuasion to counterbalance the first speaker's viewpoint. Under the old policy, the club that invited a speaker had to provide an opposing viewpoint. Now, they may present an opposing speaker if they wish, but they are not forced to do so. "A college has the responsibility to develop informed, critical, and objective thinking," said Dr. Frederick Huber, president of the college. "Such thinking can best be encouraged in an atmosphere assuring free interchange of ideas." He went on to say that he hoped tha:t groups would try to present diverse speakers in the "best tradition of the American forum." Conditions which must be met by any off campus speaker are: The speaker's background should be made public to his audience as accurately as possible. The speaker should attempt to answer relevant, unselected questions from the floor if a question and answer period is provided. The speaker's remarks must be taperecorded and made available in the library for reference use. Dr. Richard Loomis, trustee, felt the clause on taping might cause trouble.

"If I remember correctly from my college experience, there might be some speaker with very valuable information, who might refuse to let his material be taped," Loomis said. "There is usually no problem with this, if it is made quite clear to the speaker that the taping is for educational purposes only," explained Huber. The policy still requires approval of a speaker by the group's faculty sponsor, the dean of students office and the Inter-Club Council. Failure to comply with any of the seven-point procedural

pattern for scheduling a speaker will result in cancellation of the activity. The other policy adopted by the board allows the district to provide a form of sick leave pay for employees who have used up their legal number of sick leave days, which is set by the state at one day for each school month. The policy is effective as of March 12. If needed this year, monies will be paid out of the district's cash balance. Provisions will be made to carry out the policy next year when the 1969-70 budget is adopted this summer.

Forensics squad travels over weekend to Whittier Invitational Consistent winners, the Palomar Forensics squad is scheduled to compete in the Whittier Invitational speech tournament this weekend. Approximately 75 colleges and universities were invited to the tournament. Some of these include Cal Tech, Arizona State, UCLA, USC, San Diego State, UCSB, Cal Western, UCSD and many more. Mr. Ray Dahlin of the SpeechTheatre Arts area termed the meet a Western Invitational. Twenty two speakers from Palomar will compete in six categories of competition. Competing in extemporaneous are Hank Pinto, Carl Yarber and Cathy Widrig. Expository includes Carrol Wycoff and Ruth Hada. Hank Pinto will be the only speaker in the impromptu competition. Oral interpretation speakers include RuthAnn Eicher, Carrol Wycoff and Tom Wheeler. Persuasive competition includes Carl Yarber, Ruth

Ann Eicher, Cathy Widrig, Tom Wheeler, Ralph Tolle, and Wayne Knott. Dahlin noted that five of the above speakers will be competing for the first time. These speakers are from speech fundamentals classes. Next weekend the team will be competing in the Pacific Coast Championships at San Diego State. According to Dahlin, "judging from the results of earlier tournaments this year the squad should finish in the top ten." The Forensics squad has made an impressive showing so far this year, collecting 14 trophies and a third in sweepstakes at the Fall Championships. In a tournament at Arizona Western in Yuma, the squad swept the tournament winning every event. Commenting on the team Dahlin said "the happiest note is that most of the people are beginners , which means we will have the strongest team ever next year.''

Curran innovates program based on productivity Health isn't what it used to be.! Not the way Michael Curran presents it anyway. Mr. Curran, health instructor and one of the latest additions to the faculty this semester, has innovated a study program based on the theory that "A teacher may plant a seed and he may attempt to water that seed, but the real answer to growth lies in the soil. Productivity depends on how rocky, shallow or rich the soil actually is." Students in Mr. Curran's classes are encouraged through group discussion, to analyze all sides of a given question and ultimately arrive at their own individual conclusions. Agreement with the professor's theories has no bearing on grades for the semester. The only requirement is that the student show a substantial basis for his deductions. While lectures are necessarily a vital part of the curriculum, in order that certain material be covered, these sessions are alternated with panel debates, films, tapes, and occasionally a guest speaker is invited to lecture.

Mr. Michael Curran, new health ed instructor, encourages group discussion.

The health text serves only as a guideline for the course, and where : -necessary Mr. Curran does not hesitate to deviate from it, so that students may have a fuller understanding of their subject. Covered in the course are such provocative topics as the senses and perception, drug addiction, cigarette smoking, alchoholism and sex. These are considered from a psychological standpoint. Health is one of the most significant courses offered on college campuses today, since it deals with many tormenting problems faced by youth in this era. Mr. Curran feels that after all available information on a given subject is presented to the student he will, through open and frank group discussion, arrive at a conclusion by which finally, he must live . Mr. Curran earned his Masters Degree at Los Angeles State. He· taught at Citrus College and Mount San Antonio College in Pomona and more recently at Monte Vista High in San Diego.

News at a glance I Philip Moore was awarded a $200 cash prize for his sculpture titled "T.Q.Q.M." at the •california South VII" exhibit sponsored by the San Diego Art Guild. Moore's entry was one of 59 selected for display from 383 paintings, graphics and sculptures screened for showing in the exhibit. The works displayed were from artists along the coast as far north as Santa Barbara. Also accepted for showing in the collection was a vacuum-formed sculpture by Russell Baldwin of the Palomar faculty. The show at the Fine Arts Gallery, San Diego, will continue through April 20. Another Palomar art student, Mark Ross, was the winner of a prize for his entry in the second annual San Luis Rey Art Festival, which had contest categories for professionals, adult students, and students under 21.

"A Taste of Honey" was written about 10 years ago when Miss Delaney was 19. She turned out a powerful portrayal of the life she knew in the seamy suburbs of Lancashire, England. The story is of an 18-year -old girl and her semi-prostitute· mother who move from one slum apartment to another and share a home where love and mutual trust are unknown. The mo:her manages to get a younger man to marry her, and they turn the daughter out of the house. She finds a brief period of happiness and love with a Negro seaman on leave. He goes back to sea not knowing that she has become pregnant. Desperately in need of someone who cares, she finds an ally in an effeminate youth who cannot fall in love with her but shares her home and helps her prepare for the birth of the baby. The calm is shattered by the reappearance of the mother, whose new marriage has collapsed, and who ends the girl's hard-won security, spurning the youth and driving him away, destroying the things he has made for the baby, and finally turning her own back when she learns that· the father of her unborn grandchild was of a different race than her own. Mr. Norm Gaskins is again handling technical direction for the play. His scene design is in keeping with the naturalistic style, where tiny details and accurate depiction supercedes design.

La Jolla Museum of Art offers • display of Lopez' ceram1cs The second in La Jolla Museum of Art's Spring series of lectures and demonstrations, "The Artist Speaks for Himself," will be held at the museum Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Mrs. Rhoda LaBlanc Lopez, instructor of ceramics for the University of California, San Diego Extension, will display .a nd discuss several aspects of the ceramist's art. With the aid of one of her s tud ents , Bruce Fry, Mrs. Lopez will . demonstrate the use of the potter's wheel and will show the construction of a ceramic wall relief. A recently conpleted fountain, a commissioned work will be exhibited , as an example of a finished relief, along with other ceramic works by the artist. Mrs. Lopez studied at Scripps College in Claremont, California; the University of Michigan, and Cranbrook Art Academy. She has taught University of California Extension classes since 1964. Previously s he served as a teacher for the Art Center School in La Jolla and gave classes in ceramics In Ann Arbor, Michigan where her husband, the late F . Carlos Lopez, was a professor of art at the University of Michigan. In 1968, she added MiraCosta Junior College to her teaching schedule. She has been accredited to teach in California colleges on the basis of eminence. The artist has held one-man shows in Michigan, Chicago, and San Diego, and her work has been represented in many group exhibitions, both locally and nationally. Her plans for the future include a two-man show with Jim Hubbell, for the benefit of the San Diego Youth Symphony, in the late Spring, and a Lopez Family Retrospective Exhibition in Ann Arbor, Michigan, this summer. Works by Mrs. Lopez her late husband and

their son, John, also a painter and ceramist, will constitute the exhibition. An article in the Los Angeles Times Home Magazine, on Mrs. Lopez' work, appeared in January featuring the individually-sculptured architectural bricks she has created. The 2:30 p .m. event is free and open to the public.

Minority recruitment sought by senate, AFT Increased employment of minority groups here is the goal of a resolution passed by the faculty senate last Monday. The resolution, which was passed by a 12-4 vote, calls for increased efforts in recruiting of persons of ethnic minorities to fill both teaching and classified postions on the college staff. The measure is now before the Board of Governors who must approve it before it can become official school policy. An almost identical resolution, which was passed by the Palomar chapter of the American Federation of Teachers is also before the Board, but the AFT document includes provision for curriculum changes to add courses dealing with minority group problems. Both the Faculty Senate and AFT recommendations call for the administration to "actively solicit applications from qualified persons ofnon-Caucasian ethnic background and of non-western cultural heritage and should seek to develop and maintain both a qualified faculty and curriculum genuinely representative of the breadth and diversity of the American experience."

Twin-bill opens conference schedule Comets to host Grossmont team here tomorrow Coach Jim Clayton's baseball team opens its 19 69 conference competition when they play host to the Grossmont Griffins in a double header tomorrow at 11 a.m. Dennis Melton, freshman left-hander, is slated to start the first game while Ernie Oliva or Dan Gabbard will go in the afternoon contest. Melton, who is 1-1 for the season, has gone 13 innings without giving up an earned run. Palomar defeated Saddleback college, 10-2, Wednesday to increase their won• loss record to 6-2 as they enter conference play. Grossmont appears to have a strong team this year as they trounced the San Diego Knights, 15-2, Wednesday. Rate as underdogs Comet Coach, Jim Clayton, feels that the local squad would have to be rated as an underdog in league conpettition due to the fact that the PSC boasts one of its strongest contingents in years. Sophomore hurler, Ernie Oliva, who has had a rough start this year, had one of his best days Wednesday as he hurled the first four and one third innings against Saddle back. Oliva allowed five hits while striking out three batters. Dave Sanchez, who is the leading pitcher on the Comet team, relieved Oliva and finished out the game. Sanchez has pitched 16 and two-thirds innings without yielding a single run. He gave up only one hit while striking out three Wednesday against the Saddleback team who are in their initial year. Gabbard leads hitting Dan Gabbard led the hitting department against Saddleback as he went 3-3 including a double and three RBI' s. Palomar hitters had one of their best days as they collected 12 hits over the nine innings. Palomar wasted not time in scoring as they pushed across three runs in the first inning. Bob McKee led off the rally by drawing a base on balls. Oliva then singled and Gabbard hit his first single to score McKee. Frank Hoppes, who went 2-4 on the game with four RBI's then drove in both Ernie Oliva and Gabbard with a single. The Comets put the game on ice in the ninth inning when the leading batter for the season, Gil Puma.r, boomed a triple. Gabbard's double score Pumar and a double by Hoopes brought another run across the plate. The Comet hitters weren't through yet, however, as a single by Mike Garver scored Hoopew and a final single by Jerry Ward enabled Garver to score. Pitchers questionable In the Grossmont clash, Clayton is keeping a wary eye on Don Nelson and Tom Jolmson due to the fact that they have both come down with a case of the flu and may not be available tomorrow to assist Melton. The Comets will travel to San Diego City Wednesday to test the Knight for their second PSC game. Palomar defeated College of the Desert Friday, 4-1, for their third win over the desert squad this year. Nelson, the sophomore right-hander from San Dieguito, went the distance on the mound for the Comets and contributed three singles in three times at bat to aid the local's cause. The Comets collected eight hits off COD pitcher Lee Rumble, inclulding a double by Gil Pumar.

COD scores first The desert representatives scored first when catcher Jim Irwin led off the third inning by drawing a base on balls. He advanced to second when Palomar third baseman, Al Conley, dropped an attempted sacrifice bunt by Rumble. He advanced to third on an infie ld play and scored on an e rror by Pumar. Palomar came back in their half of the third inning when Don Nelson led off with a single, moved to second on a passed ball, advanced to third on an infield play and scored when the COD catcher threw the ball into centerfield while trying to stop Bob McKee from stealing second base. McKee then scored f rom second when Pumar belted his double to right centerfield. The Comets collected another pair of runs in the fifth inning when Sam Oliva rapped a single into rightfield, moved to second on a single by McKee, advanced to third on a passed ball and scored when the COD pitcher committed a throwing error in attempting to pickoff McKee . McKee scored the final run of the game when COD's shortstop missed a ground ball hit by Pumar.

Tracksters travel to Vegas for last pre-season match Doc Marrin's Comets get one more pre- season test before starting league play. The tracksters arrived in Las Vegas last night for a meet today that pits the local spikers against four other college teams. The field includes Nevada Southern and Azusa Pacific--four year institutions. To round out the schedule are Victor Valley (L. A.) and Dixie JC (utah). Although last Saturday's meet with Glendale¡ , Arizona ended in a 92-47 loss for the Comets, it provided some pleasant surprises. Tom Ries' excellent performances in the 440-yard intermediate hurdles (55. 8 seconds) brought him a school record; only a couple of strides back was Mike Quirk, who came across the finish in 56.8 seconds. An understandably pleased Coach Marrin cited both Quirk's and Ries' marks as outstanding for early season competition .. In the 120 high hurdles, Ries again headed the Palomar contingent with 14.8 seconds. This time Quirk was only 1/10 of a second behind. In another heat of the event, David Wasden equaled Quirks 14.9- second time. Sophomore hurdler Len Thompson ran both races, despite the fact that he is

Palomar golfers make non-conference stop at Mira Costa College Palomar's golf team, who have not yet to taste victory in conference competition, will take a breather from league action Monday when they travel to MiraCosta for a match with their coastal rivals. Last Monday found the Comets being overwhelmed by the Mesa Olympians, 52- 2. Palomar proved no opponent for the San Diego squad, who so far have defeated ever yone e lse in the league. The Comets will return to conference play next Friday when they play host to the Grossmont Griffins . Jim Carter was low medalist for Palomar against Mesa, shooting a 83 over the par 72 Torrey Pines course .

still suffering the effects of a serious case of poison oak. Dan Zukaitus won the javelin with a throw of 175 feet, followed by Don Tucker with a third-place throw of 172 feet. Tucker also put the shot 48 feet 1 inch, and got off a discus throw of over 137 feet. The discus mark is a personal best for the versatile freshman. In the pole vault, Mike Quirk won with a 13-foot, 6-inch vault. Wayne Wingo went 12 feet, 6 inches-- a 'best' for him. A dependable Pat Hallman won the high jump at 6 feet, 4 inches. Other commendable marks are Gary Fluherty's 10.2 seconds in the hundred and Lee McComb's 9:48 in the two mile.
