Accreditation team files verbal report Gridders host Southwestern tomorrow night With a shot at leaving the Mission Conference cellar, the Comets will play host to a tough Southwestern team in their final home game of the season. Kickoff will be at 8 p.m. at Memorial Field in Escondido tomorrow night. The Apaches , tabbed as conference contenders at the opening of the season were dealt their third setback in five outings by second place Riverside 21-0 last weekend The Comets beat Riverside earlier in the season 27-21. In three of their last four losses, the Comets have been victims of poor secondhalf efforts. In each of the cases the locals led at half time, and in each they had held their opponents scoreless Oddly enough the Comets, who have been noted as a second half team in their wins over Hartnell and Riverside, couldn't keep going and lost both their leads, and the game after intermission. In last weekends's game with Chaffey, the Comets had taken a half time lead of 10-0 on a touchdown pass from Craig Beukelman to flanker Rex Holloway, and a 28 yard field goal by Rick Barrios. The visiting Comets came out and in the third quarter added three points to their lead on another field goal by Barrios . Then Chaffey put it together with an eight point effort in the third quarter, in addition to their 22 point out put in the final quarter to sew up their second win of the season, giving them a share of fourth place in the conference. Fullback Tony Letuligasenoa continued his torrid pace picking up 151 yards giving him a total of 761 yards for the year.

Debaters gain gold medals With thirty two victories out of a possible forty one, the Palomar College debaters were impressive at the UCLA, El Camino, and Cal State Fullerton Invitationals . Receiving recognition at the UCLA tourne y were Wendy Wetzel, Rosela Del Casti llo , Larry DeBoever, Steve Kildoo, Chuck Jackson and Joe Cosenza as the teams won nine of twelve debates. A high powered Cal State Fullerton tourney saw the Wetzel-DeBoever team reaching the Octa-finals before losing a close decision to USC. Gold medal winners at El Camino with undefeated records were Wendy Wetzel, Jan Caswell, Chuck Jackson, Joe Cosenza, Darlene Laskowski, and Jim Smith. The squad is now preparing to defend their sweepstakes title at Arizona Western, which will be followed by the Western Speech Association Tournament in Portland, Oregon. Coach Ray Dahlin, anticipating the 1971 national championships in St. Louis, Missouri, feels his speakers have an excellent chance of finishing in the "top ten" in the nation.

Basketball game set As football draws to a close, Coach Andy Gilmour and his basketball squad step into the athletic limelight. The Comets will get a good chance to see whats in s tore for the coming season, as they play host to Cypress in a 10:30 scrimmage tomorrow morning in the Dome . Coach Gilmour plans to start his two returning letterman, Mark Embrey and Marty Bojorquez, at the guards, while Gene Chaffin and Jon Cnossen will open at the forwards, with Steve McGrea at center. Three freshman, Greg Price, Roger Wright and John Duffy, are expected to see a good deal of playing time. The Comets have scheduled two scrimmages, prior to their season opener with Long Beach CC on November 26 at 8 p.m. in the Dome. Their other scrimmage will be held November 21 with San Diego CC . Long Beach, last years runners-up in the state playoffs, are expected to be a tough competor again this year. The Comets will turn around and play host to East Los Angeles in back- tohack home tilts.

mages will be extremely helpful in our preparations for it" stated Coach Gilmour. The coach feels optimistic about some phases of his squad, but is still a little skeptical about the size of his fro nt three. "We are further along this year than we were this time last year. We have all our people out now, and they are working hard" added Gilmour. The Comets have been undergoing rigid workouts since October 15, and continue to practice from 3 until 6 every evening. Last year, the first under Gilmour, the Comet cagers finished out the season in second place, a game out of first. With only two returning letterman, Gilmour lost the majority ot last years team, which included two AU-Conference players, Charlie Ayars and Earl May, who have transfered to Lindfield College in Or egon.

Palomar's general education program was cited as being "excellent'' and designed to effectively serve all segments of the student body, in a preliminary report of an accreditation panel that completed its detailed study of coll ege operations last week. The accreditation team of nine prominent California educators, who came to campus for a survey of all Palomar departments, will make a full written report. On it will be based the new accreditation designation for the college in the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. In advance of the completion of the written report, which will require several weeks, the c hairman of the accreditation panel made a verbal summary of the team's findings to an assembly of faculty members and non-teaching employees. He is Dr. John T. McCuen, president of Glendale College, and former dean of instruction of Fresno City College. Speaking for the panel members, Dr. McCuen told the staff that Palomar College is to be commended for its functions and operations in virtually every department---classroom ins truction, faculty, library, administration, student body, buildings and grounds, and community services. In his reportofthepanel's "overview" observations, Dr. McCuen said, " In your aims and purposes hereatPalomar these have been thoughtfully developed over the yearsandyouaretobecommended for your vision and goals, including your expansion of educational services to minorities." He said the curriculum "meets the criteria" for excellency, noted that new courses have been added to serve community needs, and lauded the college for developing new fields of instruction and for the involvement of students and faculty in developing the program of courses . He made special mention of "effective administration" and said it is commended for recognizing the need of balance between transfer and vocational courses in the curriculum. Special commendation was also made on the college's efforts to meet the needs of disadvantaged persons, with particular reference to the summer program for Indian students at the Pala Reservation, and a general expansion of multicultural offerings. "Some of the larger colleges don't match you for some of your curriculum progress, counselling and educational opportunities," he said. "A community college can only be as good as its instructional staff and in this Palomar College is outstanding." Further commendation was made of "your excellent facilities, landscaping and maintenance"; for the library and "it's staff committed to the needs of the students "; to the students' morale ''which is excellent''; and to community services and public relations.

annual lecture series and the weekly free planetarium shows also drew special commendation. The panel chairman said ''The ad ministration and board are to be congratulated for establishing open communications with staff and students" and he also praised the classified employees for "the ir dedication to their duties and to the public service. " Dr. McCuen told the facu lty and staff, "We appreciate the fine cooperation you have given us during our work here. We have had friendly and efficient treatment and wonderful hospitality." He pointed out that in addition to studying a great amount of reports, records, catalogs, and prepared exhibits, the team m e mbers also "got right into the classrooms." " In all," he said, "we saw more than 75 instructors in action, and we visited more than 100 classes." Among the recommendations made in Dr. McCuen's r eport for the panel were: increase in the counseling s taff and addition of a bilingual counselor; further development of vocational courses; additions to library staff; consideration of the addition of an admissions officer because of the tremendous growth in that department in the past five years. Members of the accreditation team, in addition to Dr. McCuen, were: Dr. Robert C. Rockwell , superintendentpresident, Santa Carita Junior College District; Miss Beverly C. Andre, R.N. nursing education consultant, Board of Nursi ng Education and Nurse Registration, Sacramento ; Alfonso C. Urias, specialist with the Extended Opportunity Program and Services, California Community Colleges, Sacram ento; Lynn 0 . Hollist, dean of continuing education, Chaffey College; Mrs. Janet Matsuyama, facu lty member, Fullerton Junior College; Franz A. Weinschenk, associate dean of the humanities division, Fresno City College; Dr. Leo M. Thomas, vice president, Citrus College , Azusa; and the assistant to the chairman of the accreditation team, John Davitt, dean of students, Glendale College. All colleges and universities regularly receive similar accreditation study as basis for the Western Association's approval for transfer of student credits. In the last such study and report, in 1965, Palomar College received the full five-year accreditation .

Response favors proposed center for child care Palomar may provid e babysitting care in the future. The baby care center would not be part of the curriculum, it would merely be an accommodation for those students who have young children at home. Associated Student Body President Tom Pohle revealed that area residents are being asked if they would attend the college they were assured of child care during the time they were taking classes. He reported that an unofficial tabulation shows that around a quarter of the students who are now parents favor a child care facility. The survey is now included on an area basis and asks, "Would you attend Palomar College if you were assured of child care?" Pohle explained that anyone interested in such a program can answer some basic questions and return them to the ASB office. The questions to be answered include the number and ages of the children; whether or not a child care center would influence the person to attend college; would they use such a facility on campus. . Another important question poses the problem . "Does the lack of such a facility restrict your own educational pursuits?" Finally, those interested should state the hours when the service would be of maximum value to them.
