Seven answer capacity crowd at open forum By Jerry Nicholas Seven of the 11 candidates competing for three Board of Trustee seats in next Tuesday's election aired their views to a capacity crowd in P - 32 Wednesday. The forum, sponsored by a facultystudent committee, turned into an emotiona I exchange between two of the candidates and members of the audience during a question-answer period . .-\nton Simson and A. L. Anderson were confronted by students questioning the validity of the rhetoric used in their campaign literature. The leaflet in dispute asked the reader if he wanted '·more tradition and less sedition•·, "more morality and less sensuality" and "more education and less indocrination" at Palomar. Assistant dean of instruction, continuing education and community services, Theodore l..:ilman and several students asked the two candidates to clarify the meaning of the words used and the purpose of the pamphlet.

Theater group prepares to lay lhe Egg' inMay


Rehearsals for the drama department production of "The Egg", scheduled to be presented May 20-22 and 27-29, are currently being held. The play's plot revolves around the leading character, Magis, looking inside the egg, which symbolizes the world or system, in which he's trying to get in. He wanders in and out of scenes when he addresses the audience with some comment on the egg. Buddy Ashbrook, director, commenting on the spring production, said, '•we feel this is an exciting contrast from the last play we presented, a neo-classical Greek tragedy which had no comic relief. This play is extremely funny. It's the first play done in the round since I've been here.'' The large cast includes, Tom Henderson, in the leading role, with Jo Ann Watkins, Robert Garven, Obie O'Brien, Ed Moelthen, Steve Barns, Cheri Jacques, Beverly Larsen, Glendie Koyl, Claudia Eichen, Estella McDill, Dr. Rollin Coleman, Wayne Baldon, Cher Kunz, John Higdon, Darlene Booker and Claudia Keithley in supporting roles. Ashbrook mentioned that some of the problems involved with such a large cast are people undertaking as many as three cameo roles. "All these small roles must be put together and made to fit. The large cast also makes it hard to schedule the actors to rehearse. But regardless of these problems, the play will be well worth the effort," Ashbrook smiled. Although the play is not "x-rated", because of the frank discussions within some of the scenes, Ashbrook does not recommend small children be brought to see it.

lndianl course now underway ~Contemporary

The course will also investigate discrimination, Indian organizations, stereotypes, and the "now Indian." The eight week class meets from 11 to 12 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday in room F-9.

l\1 orality questioned One woman, who said she was "a taxpayer, voter, and student" asked theduo ''what right does the board of governors have to control my morality?" Neither answered the questions directly. Simson, Anderson and James P. Hedington, not present, are running as a slate. All candidates gave a four-minute speech before the floor was opened to audience questions. The committee also circulated a ques tionnaire to the candidates prior to the meeting, the results of which are available to students in the library. Carl Ebert, a student contender, called for more student representation on the governing board and said he would like to be a liaison between students and the board. Theater proposed ''The new swimming pool is nice enough, but I think a new theater is needed much more,'' said Ebert. ''I think the students would have rather had a theater built with all that money. If I were on the board I could inform the other members of the students' priorities. "Also I believe we need more multicultural studies. This area has a rich history that is not fully realized or understood.' • J. Ray Baker, a realtor in Escondido, said "I know you need a theater, but I'm happy to have a pool," as he began his speech. Baker said he was concerned over what was happening on the nation's campuses. "I'm against disruption, but not against dissent. I think we should talk it out, not throw it out, work it out, not tear it out." In answer to the questionnaire, he favors the sharing of decision-making by representatives of the public, faculty and students. Education praised George S. Mack, an Escondido insurance underwriter, said he was grateful to the junior college system for the education of his family. "I believe that since I come into the situation without preconceived ideas and bias I will be able to look at things with a fresh point of view.'' Stuart :\1arshall, who is an insurance broker in Fallbrook, suggested "good salaries for good people" and student responsibility. :>.Iarshall said he thought positively about Palomar, that "Palomar is a good school.'' He also pointed out that the PCCD tax rate is the lowest in the county. In the questionnaire, Marshall said "Obviously, the board cannot lose control:' but called for student and faculty involvement in decisions. Lucy Bayne, an Escondido housewife, stressed that she has "the time and qualifications to be a board member." She lauded vocational training programs, most specifically in the paramedical field and in the questionnaire said she approved of the present speaker policy. Anderson said the "most important duty of the board is to hire the best people.'' In closing he reminded the audience of his nickname "Pal" saying "Remember Pal for Palomar!" Simson proposed better entrance I;equirements so that students are not "wasting the time and money of the taxpayers.'' He is against teac her tenure and the renewal of contracts before their expiration date. Redington advocated speakers be cho(Continued on Page 2)

Originators of the idea are two Santa 13arhara r esidents , Ke n Kolsbun and Mic hae l Py ze l , coordinators of a new , nonprofit movement called Friends for Bikecology. The two have defined bikecology as " ecology through bicyc ling". They ha ve contacted through letter s and brochures more than 5, 000 key i nd ividuals a nd organizations throughout the country, including e nvironm e ntal and recreationa l groups , politicians, news e ditors, colleges, and others, to solicit parti c ipation in the May 8 event.

" Americans by the thousand s are expected to take to their bikes to s how urban planne r s , politici ans and industrialists that c ities are m eant for people, not automob iles , " Kol sbun and Pyzel said . ''And pare nts will be expressing hope that their children might ride safel y on bikepaths r athe r than c ompe te with automobi les in the city s treets ." The two men stated th~ir belief that many ad ults would gladly ride bicycles to work a nd on s hopping errands if safe bikepaths were constructed . The r esult, they said, would be less air and la nd pollution and a healthier, happier and more social populace. "The cyc list, unlike the motorist, is not seal ed within a capsule of protective metalwork," th ey argue. "As a r esult, he is free to experie nce his immediate surroundings by seeing, smelling and touching."
