Two openings left 1n European tour Only two more openings are left in the 1971 photography-study tour of Europe, at special reduced student rates. The tour, open to young people of North County, is sponsored by the Photography Instructors Association of So. California in cooperation with the Foreign Study League, a subsidiary of TransAmerica Corporation. Justus W. Ahrend, Palomar photography instructor, is an instructor and counselor for the tour. Ahrend said that high school and junior college students may apply now for the combination photography and comparative culture study tour, which will be limited to 10 students. Application forms may be obtained by telephoning Ahrend at Palomar College. Ahrend said the 42-day trip, from June 24 to August 4, will cover five countries--Italy, Switzerland, Spain, France, a nd England. The jet flight eastbound will be direct from Los Angeles non-stop to Rome where the class will stay for the first 6 days of the study tour. "Emphasis throughout the travel will be on photography,~ Ahrend said, "but
there will also be classroom work, for credit, in some of the schools and colleges of the various countries to be visited. Several meetings are planned before and after the tour and three units of transfer credit will be granted by Palomar College. The broadening of scope, understanding and knowledge of foreign lands and people will be an important objective of the tour program. "The schedule of places to be visited and the instruction procedure are designed to give the serious photography s tud ent new knowledge and ability far beyond mere technique,~ he said, "and the student will be working toward realizing more specific objectives dealing with visual communication. All this will take place against a rich background of history, culture, social institutions and curre nt events in the countries we will visit." The all-inclusive student-rate tuition, air fare and European travel will cover six days in Rome, four days in Florence, eight days in Switzerland, seven days in Paris, eight days in Madrid, and eight days in London, with return to Los Angeles August 4. Ahrend was a photographer-corres-
ponde nt in World War II, covering various European countries, particularly the Mediterranean region, and for one year was based in Rome. He is familiar at first-hand with the countries to be toured during the summer student trip. Ahrend said the class will be accommodated in campus housing in each city to be visited, in attractive and comfortable facilities, and the students will be accompanied throughout the tour by qualified adult instructors and counselors. Ahrend said, "It is advisable that interested parents and prospective members of the tour class inquire now for detailed information on the project, since the class size necessarily has to be limited. I will be glad to supply the information by telephone or in person at my office at Palomar College."
Mexican workshop offered to students
impeached for 'negligence'
"Exitus," an unusual musical experience , will have its world premiere this Sund ay when the concert band will pe r fo rm in the Dome at 3 p.m. Admission will be free. The pi ece was written especially for Larry Livings ton, Palomar concertband director, by Frank McCarty, an Escuudido High graduate, who is presently on the faculty of California State at Fullerton. "Exitus" exploits vocalspeec hsounds produced through musical instruments. This is a n important idea and a great interest to composers. "Exitus" employs various timbric devices such as key rattles, mouth piece pops and improves pe r cussion effects. Another feature is going to be the performance of a relatively new piece by Terry Reily, called "In C." This piece will be co-produced by Pauline Olive rous, one of the foremost composers in the world today. "In C" is a drone piece on the pitch C and involves various rhythmic and m elodic gestures in the key of C. This piece will involve a very unusual arrangement of players around the dome and will involve a new technique in musical pattersition of performance. Miss Oliverous will participate in the performance. Mr. Livingston will be the director of the program which will include a variety of concert band music.
Wilks will lecture Two talks by John Wilks, Fullbright exchange instructor at Palomar, are scheduled for 7:30p.m. May 13 and May 27 in college room C-5, with the public invited. Wilks is a regular faculty member at Neville's Cross College, Durham, England, and is teaching this year in the Palomar department of English. The two lectures will complete a four-lecture series, in which he is describing education and life in England . The May 13 program will feature his readings on the urban scene and on May 27 he will give his impressions of Amer-
By Lynn Stedd Approximately 100 signatures have been received on petitions currently being circulated on campus to recall all members of the ASG. These pe titions were issued in reaction to a resolution passed by the student assembly supporting legislation which would make the purchase of ASG cards mandatory. This same body chose to impeach three members of the ASG's executive council, T.J. Freeman, former treasurer, Gary Young, former men's select representative and Jeanne Shelby, former women's select r epresentative, during last Friday's meeting. According to Ray Larson, assembly chairman, the three were impeached on the grounds of "neglige nce toward their duties on the council." He added that F r eeman "missed more than three consecutive meetings, (which substantiates negligence according to the constitution), r efused to sign checks and did not call necessary budget committee meetings." Both Young and Shelby also missed more than three consecutive meetings. In r eaction to these charges Freeman stated, "We were boycotting meetings becaus e there is a dictatorship in the student assembly which stops any worthwhile legislation from being enacted. Moreover, it passes a great deal of legislation which is not in the interes t of the students and would not be approved of by the students if they knew about it."
As to the neglect of his duties as treasurer, he s aid, "I wasn't signing checks because the district is simply funneling money through the student government to fund activities which the majority of the studentsdon'tevenparticipate in. They create the illusion that if the ASG does not fund these activities the district will not fund them either and Paloma r will lose its accreditation. "The money the district gives the student government comes from the profits from the 'outrageous' bookstore prices that affect every student on this campus. The student government cannot really look into this problem because the bookstore profits go to them . "This line of thinking regarding the budget is responsible for the student assembly's recent legislation requiring mandatory ASG cards which also affects all the students, even if they don't pa rticipate in any activities." Gary Young, who was appointed by the council to the post of men's select upon Tom Pohle's resignation earlier (Continued on page :l)
A 35-day study and travel session in Mexico, beginning June 14, is available to college students and other residents of the area under a plan announced this week by the Universite Universelle. The organization was established to provide opportunities for students to do summer s tud y in foreign countries. The course of interest to students of this area is titled "Workshop in the Mexican Way of Life," with one of the instruc tors on the trip to be Ernest Shiwanov, member of the chemistry faculty at Palomar. Shiwanov said full details may be obtained by calling him at the college or at his home in San Diego, 273-3469. He said the program will include 18 days at the Universidad in Puebla, and 17 days of travel with English-speaking guides. The university c lass room courses will inc lude seminars and lectures on anthropology, archaeology, hi story, art, music and sociology of Mex ico. There will be an intensive cour se in Spanish two hours daily, inc luding one hour of direc ted convers ation with native instruc tors . The travel program will include twoday trip to Guadalajara; two-day trip to Oatzcuar o including area points of i nterest; three days to Oaxaca, three in Acapulco , three in Mexico City and three in Puebla and neighboring points.

Honorable peace the only peace
Logic and faith seen keys to ending war
By Guy Ke nnedy
By Aleta Dirdo back to morality. But nothing will be accomplished, and retrogress i on J!lay even occur if everyone begins to think with his glands instead of logic. Logic is the key word . Consider these logical facts: 1) Our huge mone tary expenditures on the war are weighing heavily against domestic problems--urban decay, rarial unrest, etc . 2) Impor tant foreign aid and policies continue to suffer from neglect. 3) The very nature of the war is causing dissent and bloodshed on our homegrounds . 4) T he black market and rampant abuse of drugs have been deteriorating m ilitary effectiveness . T hese are the strongest items of logic and fact in the whole issue. It is easy to see why this country should prepare to leave Southeast Asia. However, a time element and aftermath proposal are necessary items to consider. The current plan underway to withdraw troops is a plausible one by the Nixon Administration. The President must be given credit for keeping his promise . So far, it has been a quiet withdrawal, without the nerve-wracking sense of Hanoi endorsing the move and nodding approvingly, as she would with an abrupt pull-out. What is needed in the plan, though, is faith from the people of this country. Not faith in the very material administration and its bureaucratic methods of solving international problems, but faith in the concept of peace and the ability to spread ideology by unwarlike politics, foreign aid, propaganda and diplomacy.
So much has been written on the subject of the Viet Nam War that almost anything that is printed is a redundancy. Among those who have felt "qualified" to comment on the moral rightness or wrongness of this conflict have been doves , hawks, peaceniks, freaks, Mr. Middle America, e tc . Unfortunately, most of them have been concerned with a probl em that is too late to worry about--whether or not the United States should have concerned itself in a foreign war. Either side one may care to take, has convincing ar guments, but that is not the question today. We are faced with only one question; how to establish peace gracefully and with at least a minimum amount of security to this nation and, of course, South Viet Nam. It is most unfortunate that this country should now be split on a matter that didn't even concern us in the beginning and has now developed into a malignant tumor that threatens to weaken the union of American people. There is no easy solution to the whole affair--some want an immediate withdrawal and others want a military victory, we use such symbols as the dove and hawk to polarize the problem into two neat parts--and it is regrettable that this whole complex affair simply cannot be thought of in such a neat and orderly way. Attempts have resulted in a frustrating circle or sometimes a violent riot. However, emotions are always present in the human mind, which brings us
(Continued from page I) this semester stated his objections to the council's policies. "Originally I thought that the new constitution would be more fl exible and viable than the old one and that student gove rnment this year would be able to accomplish something. But nothing has been accomplished this semester . "It seems to me that too much time is spent quibbling over matters such as the activities card and dance contracts. Many tim es a quorum was not reached during this semester and so several issues were not acted upon. Once those boycotting the meeting are removed from the council the number needed for a quorum reduces," said David Gruenbaum, assembly member. "It had been the intent of some people to resign, notably Gary Young and T. J . Freeman•, but then they deci ded that they could cause more damage by failing to act on their resignations." "The only reason that I am for the impeachm e nts," said Larson, "is so that we can get rid of the people that are holding the group back from having a quorum." He further expressed his willingness to work with members who have opposing views. "If someone feels that other measures should have been discussed in the counc il they should bring action to the ASG meetings ." This Friday the student assembly will vote as to whether they should impeach seven student assembly members, who have missed more than the specified numbe r of meetings. They are: Mike Dedic, £Hebard Garcia, Jon Stanley, 1\largaret Castellanos, Dave Edgar, George Herrera and David Stephens . If it is agreed that they should be tried, they can give their reasons for missing the meetings at that time.

Dear Sir: Most of the students at Palomar know Buena Vista Lagoon. They may have been there at times to feed the wild birds, or they may have noticed it on their way to El Camino Real Shopping Center (which is built over filled marsh land). Perhaps many of these students don't know that Buena Vista Lagoon, unlike other nearby salt water lagoons, is filled with fresh water from the Buena Vista Creek. Do they know that the portions of the lagoon recently purchased by the California Wildlife Conservation Board, and those owned by the Nature Conservancy, compose the state's first . ecological reserve? Are the students at Palomar aware that large portions of the lagoon east of Interstate 5 are privately owned and could be filled at any time ? The section now covered by the shopping centerused to be a productive nesting and feeding area for birds until 1966 when it was filled. Do these same students know that over 200 different varieties of birds have been observed in Buena Vista Lagoon and that its reputation as a wildlife sanctuary and outstanding ecological community is widespread? Are they aware that this lagoon serves the area as an important natural open space in the midst of a rapidly growing urban center?

Dear Mr. Peacock: I read your second letter in the TELESCOPE ·(April 20) and want to commend you on it. I think you are probably exactly right on Boise Cascade and other companies. I too, fear the bulldozers are ravishing our lovely countryside which is never going to be so beautiful again. It is fine when teachers point out the truth, for how are we to take effective action unless someone does? One thing I would like to see is an education of all people in our area to the need for letting the chaparral alone. If one studies the chaparral one finds it is not just sage and chemise but it is hundreds of delicate plants too, some of which are becoming quite rare and may become extinct. Trail bikes tear it up badly but this is minor probably compared to the destruction by bulldozers and the later planting of grass lawns . I am beginning to see grass lawns as very ugly and arrogant defacement- -weeds in fact! I wish people would leave their lots in coastal chaparral wherever possible, and learn to enjoy and love the chaparral and be proud of it. If they have none, they should order native plants from the nursery or transplant those in the path of the nearest dozer to their own gardens and cherish them. The y require less water than unnatural p lantings, t hey look natural, they belong here. Perhaps if the school sponsored nature hikes, citizens and students could Paid Advertisement Gregory W. Brown, Chairman of The United States Associations' Youth Advisory Council, past International Trustee of Circle K and recipient of Freedom Award, Y.A.F., will speak the evening of May 14, 1971 (Friday) at Recreation Center, Vista at 7:30p.m. The public is invited: there will be no admission charge. Mr. Brown will talk about the problems that face America's youth today, such as why the ideas and beliefs of the responsible majority are not being heard or felt on the nation's campuses, why so many of our youth are becoming agitators fordestruction--Why some are rebelling. There will be a question and answer period to follow. Refreshments will be served. Sponsor: Republican Club of Vista Geo. H. Rogers, Jr., Sec.
learn about the native plants and see how lovely and useful most of them are. Sincerely, Mrs. Marian O'Gorman
To all those who "firmly believe in the cause;" I have something to state to all of you who I have seen today scream ing and playing "war." Perhaps you feel that camping out and wearing Tshirts, with "Join the Peace Army," etc. are an effective means of stopping an action or at least bringing attention to it. For those who didn't see, the general reaction to your "war games" was inattention, derision and laughter. People realize what is going on (there is a war), and they probably fee l as I do- -that chanting and marching are no longer effective. I feel, every time I think of the death of a human being, to the point of my own moratorium on laughter . Perhaps my silent vigil won't be brought to attention but at least I am not having a good time under the guise of making "the WAR" known. If you'll look at yourselves you'll see that most of you a re playing, not seriously thinking of human wastage. You are now probably thinking, "what a pompous, right-wing pig" I am. I am a very feeling person who dislikes hipocracy and facades intensely.

The dilemma that is Vietna m offers no easy solution. But to gain the peace by immediate, unconditional withdrawal would be the highest form of foolis hness. Indeed any withdr awal that is not planned, orderly, and of our own volition could be fatal to wor ld civilization, if not to the lives of all mankind. Why the pessimistic view? Numerous count r ies around the world have planned their futures on promises made by the U.S. What would be the effects of som e of these countries suddenly deciding that the U.S. c ommittment is not wor th the p aper it is wr itten on? We have no treaties wi th Israel. But we have made m any ve r bal committments a nd supplied her with ar ms. Will Israe l continue to trust in that fl ow of arms continuing, Ame r iC3.rl warships checkmating the Russians in the Medi terranean , if we leave the Republic of Vietnam to its fate after so many years of support? What if Israel does not trust the U.S. Without doubt the nuclear stockpile in the Negev will grow by leaps and bounds. Israel has a history of fighti ng "pre-emptive" wars . In plain words, getting the other fellow before he gets you. It happened in 56, in 67, it will happen again the very moment Tel Aviv becomes uncertain of U.S. support. But this time it will be with atomic weapons. Will the Russians stand by while their own troops, technicians, and Arab allies are incinerated? Will they twiddle their thumbs while a decade of military and economic aid goes up in smoke, lose their credibility in the eyes of the Arab world? Hardly. The bear will crush Israel. And will the U.S. stand by while this happens ? Hardly. What of Taiwan? An island pillared on more than twenty years of U.S. aid, trust, and Pacific dominance. If the American tiger proves to have the resolution of a hare, how can Chiang depend on it any longer? Again a war that cannot help but draw the U.S. in. Even if the Arabs and their Russian allies conquered Israel, and Taiwan again became a providence of mainland China, and we were content to watch with pity but no action. What of the Samurai bidding his time, watching intently from the sidelines for years? The third greatest war making potential on earth suddenly mobilized again. For Japan could not stand by idly while China hemmed in its sealanes of survival. Without the U.S. as a balance of powet· in Asia, Japan would have no choice but to become the stabilizing influence again. Beginning to sound like an old song? Do we have to go through it all again? The U.S. stood by while Italy raped Abyssinia, it wasn't our fight. It watched in horrible fascination as Spain writhed in the agonies of a civil war, we did not interfere. But this did not inhibit the Axis powers . From all this mus tachioed corporal in Berlin assumed the U. S. would not ftgh t at any cost. But we did, and it cost millions of additional casualties. The Korean war was the direct result of a miscalculation in the Kremlin. The American Secretary of State had indicated that the U.S. would not fight on the Asiatic mainland . What wi.ll be the results if the Kremlin doubts our resolve to send missiles thundering from Nebraska pl ai ns, boiling from the depths of the sea? A country that tucks tail in a little war cannot possibly have the courage to fight a big one. Is civilization to go up in a cloud of radioactive dust? Is man to go the way of the dinosaur because he wanted peace too badly? The only way to get out of Vietnam is with that age old quality men have fought and died for in the past, honor. With honor intact, crerlibili.ty preserved, the big peace can be a possibility. Without honor, no peace, big or small, can be a reality.
Lawmaker compiles Reagan tax quotes SACRAMENTO (UPI)-- Assembly Democratic leader Walter Karabian of Monterey Park Wednesday released a list of what he called "Gov. Reagan's thoughts on the individual tax burden." Karabian distributed the list after the governor's disclosure that despite a $44,100 salary he paid no state income tax for 1970 because of the investment losses. The list included these quotes from Reagan: "Certainly, no one should avoid their fair share of taxes"-- March, 1967, news conference. "I think taxes should hurt"-- October, 1966, The Times.
