selected as 'outstanding'
Dr. Frederick R. Huber addressed the Palomar College student body Friday at the annual president's convocation formally opening the 25th anniversary of the college.
Two members of the Palomar College faculty, Harold E. Cheyney, Jr., and Richard Norlin, have been selected for inclusion in the 1970 edition of "Outstanding Educators of America.''
Former Vice President Hubert Humphrey, who wrote the introductory message for the 1970 edition of the book, says the men and women included: "The greatest strength of any natfon is its human resources. These are the men and women who by their actions in the classroom today mold the course of history. Our hope---the nation's youth--- is in their hand. " The publisher's announcement said selection guidelines included an educator's talents in the classroom, contribution to research, administrative abilities and civic and professional recognition.

Classes had started Monday and the president told the convocation assembly that the preliminary day enrollment count had reached 3,140 day students, a new high record. The attendance growth again emphasizes the urgent need for increased finances, he said, and pointed out that the state's share of the junior college operation is only 24 percent on the present financing basis. He noted the college was unable to add a single new facult y member this year , despite the enrollment increase. Students are shown during the book swap held last Wednesday and Thursday

Noted environmentalist • kicks off lecture ser1es
He called for a large body of student volunteers to "go out and ring doorbells" and talk to the district citizenship, as a way to counteract what he described as a current concept that "higher education, students, faculty and administration, are wasting time and money.'' "I would like for the public to know you," he said, "and find out from you at first hand what you believe in, what you think about the issues of today, and what you are doing here at Palomar. " Dr. Huber said "This has proved to be very effective in a number of colleges throughout the United States. I'll

accept volunteers beginning right now and we will - set up a series of orientation meetings and plan the 'Campaign Truth About Students'." In his address, titled "The Fragile Years," he said, "These years are precious to you. They need nurturing. They need care. They need attention. This is not an ordinary time that we live in. This society is beset by complexities, and you and your peers are discouraged and disillusioned and rightly so. The dilemma has reached the point now where extremism from both poles has entered the arena. "This is a period when we must look to ourselves for strength and wisdom to resolve man's inhumanity to man," he said. "I feel that I can justly ask you to seek more answers---maybe just the answer about your own life. 'Know thyself' is not a bad place to begin.'' Dr. Huber told the student body of the approaching date for the visit of the accreditation team which will study college operations in detail as the required step toward renewal of accreditation in the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. That organization, he explained, must approve accreditation for all colleges and universities. The nine-man accreditation team will be at the Palomar campus October 27, 28, and 29. Huber pointed out that on the last such occasion, in 1965, Palomar received the full five-year accreditation rating.
Planetarium show starts oH season with star series "Birth and Death of a Star" is the title of the planetarium presentation to be shown each Wednesday night in September. Free of charge , the programs, which change on the first Wednesday of each month, are shown at 7:15 p.m . and 8:30 p.m. and are open to the public. Dean Charles A. Coutts, planetarium director, Mr. Joseph P. Willis, assistant director, and Mr. Richard S. Noble alternate in the presentation of the programs, which are community sponsored and funded. Commenting on the programs, Noble said, "Being community funded, you wonder about the use of the planetarium. With the programs for school children, plus Wednesday nights, we've run approximately 65,000 people through there." Explaining that the Spitz projector used cost $30,000, Noble added, "It is used and appreciated by the people and that's what we want.'' ''Birth and Death of a Star'' traces the history of our sun from gas cloud to red giant to white dwarf, and will be followed in October by a presentation entitled "Myths and Monsters." The remaining Fall semester programs will include "Light and Color in the Sky," (November), "The Christmas Star," (December), "Keeping Time," (January), and "The P's and Q's of Unusual Stars," (February).
Dramatists hold tryouts for play "Death of a Salesman" by Arthur Miller has been scheduled as the first fall production to be given by the Palomar College Drama department. Tryouts for the eight male roles and the five female roles will be held Thursday and Friday from 3 to 5 p.m. each day in the drama lab, P-33. Mr. Buddy Ashbrook, drama instructor, said that any student, regardless of classes being taken or major, is welcome to tryout. All people from the North County Community who are interested are also invited to tryout. Most rehearsals will be in the evenings, depending on the schedules of those cast. Rehearsals will begin September 29, and the six performances will be October 29, 30, 31, and November 5,6, and 7.
A worthwhile $15 investment Returning Palomar students will remember the controversy over ASB cards last fall. A false impression led many people to believe that an ASB card had to be purchased in order to register. This false impression resulted in many hassles and the ultimate result was that over 50 students had their $20 refunded. Other students, left clutching their ASB cards and little else, grumbled for the remainder of the year. Few people received $20 worth of use from their cards, which were good for voting purposes, free admission to home athletic activities, and $.50 discounts at dances. So, using experience gained, last spring's ASB council reduced the cards' price to $15, and started plans for a discount booklet that would accompany the ASB cards this fall. During the past summer your newly elected fall council members completed work on the coupon book, making it a reality. A coupon book worth over 550 in one-time discounts and $100 in continuing discounts. The sales approach used during this year's registration
was low-key. As a result of this, plus the bad experience from last year, sales are low. Less than 33 percent of the student body have bought ASB cards compared to 70 percent last year. What does this mean? It means that the ''low'' budget drawn up by last semester's ASB council, and binding on this semester's council may not be met. Approximately 850 ASB cards have been sold. Over 100 more must be sold to meet the "low" budget. It means activities that you participate in will most likely have their bue!get c~t_for lack of funds. This is inevitable because the ASB has no funds to fall back upon, and the administration is also having budget problems. The saddest part is that the student not buying an ASB card actually loses money. A $15 investment can save you over $100 this year. Can you afford to lose money this year? -----willie
Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, Today, I failed to report for induction into the armed forces of this country. There are so many things I feel should be said. There is so much pain because I know so many people will never understand. I do this because it is the only thing I can do. There is no other way. Everyone I talk to has his own opinion as to the route I s hould take. They are not new , I have thought of them before. I am not a pacifist. Like most people I have been taught hate and I have become used to violence. I would kill to save the life of someone I love. Vengeance is also locked inside. I know these things are wrong, but it is extremely difficult to cast these demons out. Perhaps someday. I am not a martyr. At least I don't think that that was a motivating factor in the decision. As I said before, for me there is just no other way. I am not a political activist (whatever that means). I refuse to recognize the world in the form of politics, governments and countries. The world is people and each person is unique in some way. Countries' boundaries are not tangible. They are merely a conception of man. I refuse to share that conception .
I have been many things to different people. I have been many things to myself. A long cast of characters that I have played or have been thought to have played. Now I am Stephen . . . that is all that I am. I am against the war in Southeast Asia as, ideally, I am against all wars and anything that forces men to take each other's life . I am only interested in the positive aspects of life. Governments deal in death. Now, it seems, the revolution has come. A revolution which deals in death for the sake of life. It has seeped out of the colleges and ghettos into the streets of the downtown districts. People are buying guns and bombs have replaced the marches. I feel it is not the way. You can't get to heaven by going to hell . . . but it seems like that is the direction we've taken. Wars will stop when men refuse to fight them. The barriers produced by countries will no longer exist when men refuse to believe in them . I have tried to communicate the beliefs and fee lings that brought me to this step. I know that I have failed to a large degree. I am trying to convey emotion. . words don't fit and they never will.

I have not written this to condemn anyone or anything. I don't have that right. This was written with the hope that someone might understand. I hope someone does.

Fragile Years!) yoursforthetaking
If you attended last Friday's assembly· in the Dome, you heard Dr. Frederick R. Huber, president of Palomar, give a speech entitled, "The Fragile Years." And if you listened carefully to what he was saying, and thought about it, you just might have walked out feeling a twinge of anticipation inside yourself.
Because what Dr. Huber was saying was that we, as students here at Palomar, owe it to ourselves to get the best possible college education we can. In order to do this, we must look for any problems or obstructions that might hold us back and work together to break them down. As Dr. Huber said, "Our future depends on whether or not we can open ourselves up to the problems we face right now." The organization of a task force was proposed which involves student volunteers who would go out and talk to members of the community about topics vital to them both, a "taking of the college to the community." This, as well as taking a hard look at some of our classes and working to the betterment of student to student and student to teacher relations, seems to be a good way to begin bringing about the recognition of many of our problems. There are many ways in which we can make ourselves be heard. One is

Livi ngston replaces Mr. Burrill G. Monk in the music department. Mr. Livingston rece ived his S.M. and his M. M. in music from the University of Michigan in 1970. He also received a PhD from UCSD. He was previously an instructor in music at Luther College.
through student government. If you recognize a problem, discuss it with any member of the Student Council (if you were at the assembly Friday, you know who they are) or bring it up at the weekly ASB meeting, every Monday at ll a.m. in R-3. Another channel of communication is the student newspaper, with offices located in R-4. The TELESCOPE welcomes your opinions through guest editorials and letters-to-theeditor. Also, informal talks with faculty and fellow students can bring about a better understanding of many issues. Perhaps an education outside the classroom can be just as meaningful as one obtained inside. This may be the year for change. Let's not lose the spirit we have now. Dr. Huber stated, "We must try, and if we all help, together we may find some solutions." Certainly someone will be listening. -----jan
