Collective bargaining only hurdle at PBJC 

By Jim Hayward 
News Editor 

Dr. Edward M. Eissey, entering his third year as president of 
Palm Beach Junior College, addressed the faculty Aug. 11 in the 
Food Service Center, touching on topics from new facilities and 
staff to the still unresolved collective bargaining negotiations. 

"The negotiations are the only hurdle that we haven't been 
able to overcome. We (PBJC and United Faculty) have a 
conceptual difference to work out," Eissey said. Teachers have 
been without a contract since July 1. 

Eissey pinpointed a management rights clause, a clause that 
met with "complete disdain" at the bargaining table, as the 
major obstacle in the negotiations. The clause allows 
management to handle any problems not m the contract. 

The Public Employees Relations Commission has appointed a 
special master to break the deadlock. However, Eissey doesn't 
anticipate a resolution until January. "In the past, when we've 

not been able to resolve negotiations during the calendar year we 
went to a special master." The average $200-per-month salary 
increase will not be paid until a contract is signed. 

On the brighter side, Eissey discussed the groundbreaking of 
the Glades and North campuses and renovations at the Central 
Campus. PBJC has obtained 53 acres of land from Florida Atlantic 
University, worth more than $100,000 per acre, 10 of which are 
ready to be built on as soon as funds are available. Elevators with 
complete handicapped facilities have been completed in the 
Humanities and Social Science buildings at PBJC Central. "The 
millage committee has been the hardest-working committee I've 
seen in these past two years," Eissey said. 

Plans have been completed to renovate the auditorium with 
new facilities including a seating capacity of approximately 1,000. 
' 'Our roofing has been completed in terms of the planning and the 
identification of the cost," Eissey said. Within a few thousand 
dollars, it will cost $1 million to repair the roofs on the Central

A song and dance? - Hardly. Student Government president Richard Kochersperger and other 
SGA officers are preparing to lead incoming freshman on a tour of the campus. 

New officers revive SGA 


Banding together to en- 
courage and promote a 
friendly, healthy, productive 
and interacting atmosphere, 
Student Government Associa- 
tion (SGA) exeuctive board 
members are attempting to 
revive the organization which 
in past years has been plagued 
with dissension. 

Those SGA officials working 
to unite the student body are: 
Richard Kochersperger, pres- 
ident, Ed Rigolo, vice 
president, Todd Sehupper, 
treasurer, and Jennifer Hen- 
drickson, secretary. Preparing 
for the upcoming senatorial 
elections, the officers will be 
joined soon by a force of 
student senators who will work 
in harmony with the executive 

Agreeing on one vital issue, 
the termination of student 
apathy, the new leaders 
believe that involvement and 
awareness are the keys to a 
prosperous year. Surprisingly, 
it was the "indifferent" 
attitude of students that in 
preceding years aided in the 
evaporation of the SGA. 

"Last year's SGA forgot all 
perspective of where they 
were. They were there to serve 
students, but the students 
ended up becoming secondary 
rather than primary," Vice 
President Rigolo said. 

Also pointing out the 
importance of a good working 
relationship, President Koch- 
ersperger said, "At no time 
will a decision be made by the 
senate or executive board 
without having first assessed 
the feelings, attitudes and

SGA campaigning 
To begin tomorrow 

By Angee Morris 
Feature Editor 

Applications for students 
interested in running for the 
Student Government Senate 
are located in the Student 
Government office. Those 
elected will hold office for both 
Fall and Winter terms. All 
applications must be filed by 

Campaigning will begin 
tomorrow and continue 
through Sept. 17. Sept. 15 is 
set aside for campaign 
speeches, which will take 
place at 10 a.m. on the Student 

Activities Lounge patio. All 
candidates must appear at two 
mandatory meetings to be 
held tomorrow and Sept. 17, 
both at 2 p.m. 

Each candidate must have a 
cumulative grade point aver- 
age of 2.2 and must maintain a 
2.0 average during both the 
campaign and the time in 
which office is held. Students 
graduating after the Fall term 
are ineligible. The revised 
rules can be found in either 
the Student Government or 
the Beachcomber offices. 

ideas of the student body. Our 
first and most significant goal 
is to regain the credibility with 
both the administration and 
student body, and we are more 
than ready to earn it." 

Perhaps the biggest concern 
facing SGA is that of having a 
good rapport with the campus 
administration. "We aren't 
going to go against the 
administration just for the 
sake of going against the 
administration," Kochersper- 
ger said. "We're planning to 
meet with Dr. Eissey once a 
week to keep him up to date on 
student activities and ideas. 

In order to obtain feedback 
from the students, the officers 
are coordinating a "Speak 
Your Peace" session on a 
weekly basis. 

Also on the drawing board 
are plans for a 1980-'81 class 
slogan contest. First prize will 
be a $20 discount at the 
bookstore. Students and 
administrative personnel will 
judge the contest. 

Scheduled for Oct. 14 is a 
magic show featuring the 
talents of magician and 
hypnotist Gil Eagles. "I have 
had the pleasure of seeing him 
perform and he far exceeded 
my expectations," the presi- 
dent said. 

In short, Kochersperger 
believes all the ingredients are 
present for a thriving year. He 
declared his appreciation of 
his workers. ' I feel very 
fortunate I have an executive 
board that are an asset to 
SGA. They work hard, they 
are responsible people and are - 
concerned with doing a good 
job for their fellow students, 
which will make my job very 

At North Campus 

By Robin Amelias 

Summer is usually a time for long, lazy days in which nothing 
much is accomplished. However, this was not true this summer at 
the PBJC North and South Campuses. 

After a five-month wait, the groundbreaking ceremonies at the 
North Campus became a reality in July. 

Many local and state legislators attended the gathering, one 
which broke tradition. Instead of the usual one or two persons 
breaking ground, there were four groups with nine shovelers in 

The site, on PGA Boulevard east of 1-95, is still wilderness with 
only a small patch of cleared land. Plans are to keep the area in its 
natural state. 

A Fort Lauderdale construction company was awarded the 
contract to build the new North Campus. Completion is expected 
within 18 months. 

"The current construction will be part of Phase I which will 
include a 16-room classroom building, administration buDding, 
and a physical plant," said Dr. Ottis Smith, provost of PBJC 

The Jupiter High School marching band provided the musical 
entertainment and refreshments were served by members of Phi 
Beta Lambda, a business organization exclusive to the North 
Campus. Phi Theta Kappa members served as ushers. 

The Florida Board or Regents deeded 10 acres of land from 
Florida Atlantic University's main campus in Boca Raton to PBJC 
South for the erection of permanent classroom buildings. 

Along with PBJC North, PBJC South has had no permanent 
quarters and has had to obtain space from FAU during the day. 

"We will not be able to use state funds for some rime in the 
development of PBJC South," Dr. Edward M. Eissey, campus 
president, said. "We are hoping that other business and industrial 
leaders in that area will see the importance of helping us in our 
development of the campus." A donor for the first building 
already has been found. 

Part-time teachers 
Receive pay raise 

By Kim Davis 

Staff Writer 
A 9.5 percent pay raise was 
given to all part-time college 
personnel during the Aug. 26 
special meeting of the Palm 
Beach Junior College Board of 
Trustees. The raise will go into 
effect immediately, according 
to college president, Dr. 
Edward M. Eissey. 

The raise excluded mem- 
bers of the United Faculty 
bargaining unit for teachers, 
librarians, and counselors, 
since a bargaining agreement 
between the college and union 
are still at an impasse. The 

union has agreed to the 9.5 
percent pay increase, but the 
salary increases cannot go into 
effect until the college and 
union agree to a complete 
contract package. 

In other action, the trustees 
lowered the age of senior 
citizens receiving free enroll- 
ment from age 62 to 60. Plans 
for air conditioning the 
gymnasium were scrapped 
because of limited funds and 
higher priorities. 

The next Board of Trustees 
meeting is scheduled for Sept. 
24 at 7:30 p.m., in the 
Foodservice Center.

"Twas a noble cause" 

Last May we printed an 
editorial that was not terribly 
sympathetic towards the 
Cartel administration and its 
policies. Since its publication a 

great deal has changed on the 
economic, political and inter- 
national fronts. 

Economically, 98% of Am- 
ericans by this time must be 
wondering how they will buy 
groceries next month, how 
they will pay the utility bill, 
and it they can afford to 
further educate their children. 
Then wonies must now be 
more so than they were three 
months ago. 

President Carter's political 
thorn in his side, Edward 
Kennedy, dropped out of the 
race for 1600 Pennsylvania 
Ave., only to tell Democrats to 
unite behind the President so 
that the party can effectively 
defeat Ronald Reagan and the 
Republicans in November. 
Theie are some Demociats, 
however, who do not want to 
listen to Mi. Kennedy's advice 
— tlnereforc the parly is still 

Internationally, arc we now 
on the brink of war? Nothing 
has changed in Afghanistan 
and we have no idea as to how 
many Iranian cities the 

hostages are being held 
captive in 

Ronald Reagan has prom- 
ised that if elected he will do 
away with the problems that 
Jimmy Carter has created. At 
the Republican National Con- 
vention in Detroit he said that 
it was in the party's power to 
' 'begin the world over again." 
In keeping with his tradition 
of being a man who firmly 
believes in the rebirth of the 
Ameiica we used to know, he 
also declared that Vietnam 
was "a noble cause", and 
directly impled that when 
Americans condemn our 
actions in Vietnam they 
condemn the young Ameri- 
cans who lost their lives there. 
To the VFW audience it was 
a sound line of reasoning and 
they gave Mr. Reagan their 
undivided support. To many 
conservative Americans it was 
a message that they have 
perhaps been waiting to hear 
since the good old days. 

In agreement with Ronald 
Reagan we feel that when one 
does forget or write-off the 
countless number of Ameri- 
cans who have risked or lost 
their lives in defense of their 
country then we undermine 
the beliefs and principles of 
those who have fought and 

died in a war. We also dismiss 
those who support such 
bravery and conviction, we in 
effect sweep them under the 

In disagreement with the 
Presidential hopeful we worry 
about the sort of logic that A.) 
Praises a conflict such as 
Vietnam that unnecessarily 
took the lives of the best of this 
country. And that B.) Also 
says that it is high time 
America resume hei role as 
the world's policeman, 

The time has now come_ to 
decide exactly as to what kind 
of a "problem solver" we 
need. Do we need saber-tatt- 
ling that only provokes and 
angers? Do we need the threat 
of elimination of the social 
programs that benefit the 
underprivileged as well as 
those programs that could 
benefit an already fading 
middle-class? Finally, do we 
need the political turbulence 
that would inevitably follow? 

We feel that in view of Mr. 
Reagan's statements made 
during his campaign stop at 
the VFW meeting, that such 
rigid, cut and dry methods, of 
dealing with our ills will only 
harm the United States and 
not produce the benefits they 
may have intended to. 

Taking it to the streets - Miami riots 

Ordinarily, a series of riots brings about no 
positive results, only destruction, injury and 
death. The Liberty City riots brought about all ot 
these, but also opened some eyes and some 

lr °First'the good points. It is difficult for people, 
especially white, to realize that anything 
positive could come out of such a disaster. But 
the Liberty City riots showed that black people 
in Dade County are through being abused. 
Discrimination against blacks is widespread m 
Dade, and the McDuffie trial was a bad joke 
and the last straw. 

There is no question that the trail was fixed. 
The Miami police officers were almost surely 
guilty of murder. But such an injustice will 
probably never be made again because ot the 
Liberty City reaction, and that in itself is a very 
positive result. , 

The bad points are obvious. Fifteen to twenty 
neople (depending on what statistics you look 
at) died during the riots, both black and white. 
The killing was senseless, brutal and merciless, 

resembling a feeding frenzy among sharks. 
People went back to their animal instincts, and 
murdei became a contest, a game. It is possible 
that most of the murderers didn't even realize 
what they had done until the next morning or 

The blacks started killing because of a grave 
injustice. The whites started killing for revenge. 
Neither can be blamed for what they felt inside, 
but both should be condemned for the way they 
expressed their feelings. 

The ironies. It is ironic that people can 
destroy their own city and then demand millions 
of dollars to rebuild it. It is ironic that close to a 
dozen innocent whites were killed by blacks 
(most of whom will never even go to trial) 
because those blacks were angry about one 
innocent black being killed by whites. 

It was a miniature war, and, as is the case 
with all wars, nobody won. The Liberty City 
riots proved a few points, and however 
important those points were, one hopes they will 
not have to be proven again.

Dear Editor, 

This year's orientation on 
Aug. 13-15 went extremely 
well. I know this may seem 
hard to believe to those 
students who spend from 8 
a.m. til 3 p.m. trying to 
register, but the general 
consensus is that this has been 
the smoothest running orien- 
tation in the history of PBJC. 
True, there were many 
problems and inconviences, 
but each year we strive to 
improve. Having attended 
another well known school in 

this state and going through 
their registration day, our 
system was well received 
when I first registered here. 

Student Government pro- 
vided free cokes or coffee for 
all incoming students, and 
tried to help those who were 
disoriented. For helping with 
orientation and registration 
the Student Government feels 
privileged to have met and 
worked with new people, and I 
feel we have strengthened 
some old friendships. This 
experience has convinced me 

that we have some dedicated, 
caring, and talented people on 
our faculty and staff. 

I wish to thank Joe Nasti, 
cafeteria manager and Helen 
from the cafeteria staff for 
their cooperation and support. 
Student Government also 
assembled a number of the 
schools clubs and organiza- 
tions. 1 was truly shocked to 
see what a turn out we got 
with such short notice. Duke 
Waldron and Janet Hoefs 
represented the Bible Club 
and on Tuesday, Fred 

Toleman from Phi Theta 
Kappa helped out. Inter- 
national students were repre- 
sented by Karin Roemers s 
Jane Bhebe, and Gloria Lopez. 
From Circle K, we had Tom 
Votts, Toni Stern and Mark 
Mahatty there, and Lieutenant 
Governor of the Gold Coast 
Division Don Edwards helped 
out very much on Tuesday and 
Wednesday. Randy Odem 
from the Black Student Union 
eave us a tremendous amount 
of support and of course the 
Beachcomber was also a big 

help with Bill Meredith, Bi 
Branca, Michele Kurteff ani 
Dee Dee McMahon attending 
There at a moments notice «* 
the Science Club with Kelly, 
Brian Scott, and Nai* 
Rovasio. Even Katliy, tftf 
Coop. Occupational S p ec) ^ 
stopped by to say hello. 

With such dependable * 
enthusiastic help,_ I can't &

Grants create I. O.G. 

By Marvin Morgan 

Staff Writer 

As a result of the recent millage referendum, two grants 
totaling nearly $80,000 have given PBJC an extension to the 
Women's Center and a new Institute of Governments (IOG). 

The IOG was created after the millage referendum campaign, in 
which numerous requests were received by Dr. Eissey, PBJC 
president, from municipal and county officials for courses in 

Mr Ottis Harvey, dean of continuing education.said, "I hope to 
see the institute become a norm for research in the governing 
field and also a referral center." 

To insure the success of the IOG, an advisory committee has 
been formed — made up of city managers and other personnel 
from each of the 37 Palm Beach County municipalities. 

Under the grant conditions, the college must offer 350 credits. 
At present there are plans to offer 427. 

Harvey replied, "I will try to offer three activities in October 
even if the coordinators for the IOG haven't been appointed. ' ' 

There is a proposal to offer an AA degree on the undergraduate 
level through the IOG. FAU will house a corresponding upper 
graduate program.

Campus alone. In addition, a parking facility is under construction 
by the baseball field. "We're really moving," he said. 

Registration is up 900-1,000 students since last year and Eissey 
is proud that PBJC is continuing to grow while 21 of 28 Florida 
schools are declining. 

Several new programs are being offered for the first time at 
PBJC. A degree in Public Administration, which goes along with 
the Institutions of Government program, is in its initial year. 
Continuing Education continues to broaden under Ottis Harvey 
and his staff as seven or eight TV programs (for credit),as well as 
newspaper courses, are available. 

PBJC's computer was used by Forest Hill High School to 
register its students for classes. "In the near future we will be 
registering students from 12 public high schools through our 
computer to eliminate lines at registration," Eissey said. 

"We're looking for a full-time minority recruiter to work with 
the minority community to recruit in the staff as well as the 
student area." 

PBJC is under the scrutiny of the Southern Association Self 
Study this academic year. Under Dr. Paul Graham, chairman, 
faculty members are assigned to committees to work with the 
association in a cooperative effort in evaluation of the school. 

Another goal about to be reached is that of the equal 
access/equal opportunity plan, now in its final year. 

A sad note was the death of Sallie Taylor, one of PBJC's most " 
popular faculty members since 1957. She helped found the United 
Faculty of PBJC in 1975 and was named its outstanding member 
earlier this year. 

Staff positions were announced, including Vice President of 
Student Affairs, Dr. Melvin Haynes Jr., and Director of 
Institutional Research, Dr. James Howell. Robert Suttle and 
Reuben Hale were named department heads in Business and Art.

Haynes appointed new V.P. 

Bv Annette Massey 
Staff Writer 

Palm Beach Junior College 
has a new face on its 
administration staff, Dr. 
Melvin Haynes Jr., vice 
president of student affairs. 

This position, the first for 
Haynes at PBJC, will entail 
many responsibilities. He is 
not new to this line of work for 
he was director of counseling 
and testing for seven years at 
South Carolina State College. 
Not only does Haynes' job 
include counseling and test- 
ing, but all other student 
activities including Health 
services, athletics and regis- 
tration. He is also the chief 

Haynes' job is important 
because as he says, "One 
person is needed in the system 
to draw the individual units 
together." Haynes feels that 
the units lose their efficiency 
as a whole if there is 

duplication in their efforts. 
Here he helps to keep each 
unit working well. 

Haynes has been working 
hard t" improve these units 
and keep them closely 
cootdinated. "The units must 
remain unique with their 
special functions, but still 
work together as a whole. 
Before I can change anything, 
I must know the conditions. So 
until then I hope to keep the 
system running smoothly and 
as efficient as possible," he 

Often when students first 
enter college they are met with 
much confusion and frustra- 
tion. Haynes wants to change 
this feeling. He plans to seek 
out exactly what the students 
want and stn«e for it. He feels 
that the staff should show 
warmth and affection to the 
students and the students 
should show respect. 

Haynes illustrated this with 

an example of a football team. 
"The players must act as a 
team." he explained. "If you 
have a good quarterback and a 
good fullback but they don't 
work together the team will 
not win many games. This is 
the same with the students 
and faculty. Both must reach 
out to the goal." 

Haynes feels that positive 
regard to students is import- 
ant to help them grow and 
mature to become productive 
citizens. He understands that 
it is difficult to have school 
spirit with the students 
coming and going at all times. 
"It will be hard work but 
challenging," he said. 

Haynes' purpose is to help 
the students discipline them- 
selves and keep them 
interested. He feels that two 
years of junior college can 
have a great impact on 
students and this calls for 
commitment from both the 
students and the faculty. 

College enrollment to rise in 80'$ 

By Jim Hayward 
News Editor 
The American Council on 
Education has recently an- 
nounced that student enroll- 
ment could go up in the 1980s 
despite a big drop in the 
number of students of 
traditional college age. 

The Washington-based 
council made public a study 
recommending 12 ways for 
colleges and universities to 
boost enrollment. Enticing 
more adults back into 
classrooms, recruiting more 
low-income students, reducing 
dropout rates and recruiting 
more foreign students are all 
included in the study. Through 
night classes, scholarships 
based on need, attendance 
policies, and special entice- 

ments for foreign students, 
PBJC is meeting'these needs. 

Jack Peltason, president of 
the association, said, "This 
study shows that we may have 
been far more pessimistic 
about the outlook for student 
enrollments than is justified. It 
is clear that the decline in the 
so-called traditional college- 
age population group is not 
the only fact determining the 
prospects for the 1980s. ' ' 

The report says this year's 
enrollment of 11.9 million 
students, full-time and part- 
time, could drop by more than 
1 million by 1990. However, it 
said that could be entirely 
offset by any number of ways 
of increasing enrollment. The 
12 it listed would increase 
enrollment by nearly 3 million. 

The report also noted that 

despite fears of a great decline 
among colleges, enrollments 
actually jumped by more than 
3 million in the 1970s. 

"Enrollments are up in 
every major sector of higher 
education, in both public and 
private institutions and in both 
four-year and two-year 
schools," it said. In addition, 
it noted that a majority of 
students already are older 
than traditional college-going 
ages of 18 to 21. 

The report was prepared by 
Carol Frances, chief economist 
for ACE, an umbrella 
organization representing 
more than 1,600 colleges and 

The Census Bureau has 
projected a 25 percent drop in 
the 18-to-24-year-oId popula- 
tion over the next 15 years. 

Orchestra begins rehersals 

Palm Beach Junior College is offering to it's students 
and members of the community the chance to 
participate in orchestra rehearsals every Monday at 7 
p.m. in the Humanities Building. 

Two concerts are planned for October and December 
with the orchestra and band performing together. In the 
spring the orchestra will combine with the PBJC Chorus 
to present music from Broadway shows.

The Stones' half-hearted rescue attempt 

By Bill Meredith 

like knights in shining armor, the Rolling 
Stones set out to save the summer with their 
first album in two years, "Emotional Rescue". 
Whether they saved the summer or not is 
debatable, but one thing is for sure- we have 
heard some of these songs before. , 

Of course, the Stones had quite an act to 
follow in 78's "Some Girls" album, but they 
seem to have followed it a bit too literally. 

"Dance", the album's first cut, sounds like 
"Miss You", while "Where the Boys All Go", 
the album's best rocker, sounds like "When the 
Whip Comes Down", also from "Some Girls". 
This in itself would be more detrimental if 
"Dance" and "Where the Boys All Go" were 
not two of the new album's brighter moments. 

"Summer Romance" is the only other rock 
cut that clicks,' "Let Me Go" and "She's So 
Cold" both being lame and quite weak in 

Reggae music has undoubtedly influenced the 
Stones, probably more recently than ever 
before. This can be witnessed by their two 
reggae tunes, "Send it to Me" and "Emotional 
Rescue". The former is humorous and catchy, 
the latter not quite as good but heard by nearly 
everyone. One of the album's most recognizable 
moments occurs when Mick Jagger changes 
(finally!) from falsetto to his normal growl in the 
title track. 

' 'Down in the Hole' ' is bluesy and boring, and 
Keith Richard does another of his slur-vocals on 
"All About You", the album's final cut. Good 
lyrics, but any Richard vocal is cause for alarm. 

Of all ten tracks on "Emotional Rescue", 
"Indian Girl" will probably be remembered 

most. Slow and politically motivated, it haunts 
the listener, mainly due to Jagger' s fine lyrics 
and vocal. "Little Indian girl, where is your 
father? Little Indian girl, where is your 
mother?" Jagger asks. "They're fighting for 
Mister Castro in the streets of Angola." With 
airplav, this cut could become another classic in 
the "Wild Horses"- "Angie" vein. 

The new album will not go down as one of the 
Rolling Stones' best. Guitarists Keith Richard 
and Ron Wood, and drummer Charlie Watts, 
seem distant and a bit uninterested almost 
throughout the entire LP. Most of Jagger's 
lyrics are weak, especially when compared to his 
stinging New York references in "Shattered" 
and sexual descriptions in "Some Girls" from 
the 1978 model. 

But the strong points are very strong. 
Jagger's vocals are his best and most demented 
in years, maybe ever. And bassist Bill Wyman 
has come out of his conservative shell for his 
best album in the Stones' history. His strong 
and surprising bass lines are most evident on 
' ' Send it to Me " , " Indian Girl " and ' ' Emotional 
Rescue." Wyman is probably having fun 
because he is retiring at the end of 1982 on his 
twentieth anniversary with the Rolling Stones. 

Overall, "Emotional Rescue" is not a bad 
album, but it certainly is not a great one. The 
recording and production (by Jagger and 
Richard) are excellent, and the best tracks are 
' ' Summer Romance " , " Send it to Me" , " Indian 
Girl" and "Where the Boys All Go". Worth a 7 
1/2 out of 10. 

The new album is about as good as "Black 
and Blue" (1976), but it can't touch "Some 

Urban Cowboy not up to snuff 

By Angee Morris 
Feature Editor 

A good part of the country 
and western fad (I hope it's a 
fad. Please, God, let it just be 
a fad!) that is sweeping across 
the United States is due to the 
movie Urban Cowboy. True, 
this film is not entirely to 
blame, but let's give credit 
where credit is due. 

The film is not as bad as 
some, but certainly not as 
good as others. Should the 
movie-goer not be able to get 
up some sort of enthusiasm for 
the strains of country music or 
for John Travolta's looks 
(which some say are devastat- 
ing), then he or she is left with 
a somewhat less than 
• entertaining story line. Laced 
with country music and 
Stetsons, the flimsy plot is 
centered around Houston's 
Gilley's Bar. John Travolta 
plays a "hard hat" who works 
in an oil refinery during the 

day and spends his nights (and 
most of his life) at Gilley's. 
Here's the plot: Bud (Travolta) 
meets a girl. Where? At 
Gilley's. He asks the girl to 
marry him. Where? At 
Gilley's. The couple breaks 
up. Where? At Gilley's. The 
couple re-unites. Where? At 
Gilley's. All of this takes close 
to three hours, and it is quite 

One of Travolta's biggest 
box office hits, Saturday Night 
Fever, was instrumental in 
spawning what was known as 
disco fever. With the 
exception of Moment By 
Moment, Mr. Travolta's films 
seem to have a great deal of 
impact on the lifestyles of 
quite a few Americans. With 
this in mind, one wonders: if 
Travolta made a movie about 
the joys of jumping off of the 
Brooklyn Bridge, would the 
nation show a sudden increase 
in suicides?

The ship was high into the night, 

The silver beams flecked with glints of light. 

The Pilot rang the ground below, 
"From up here it's quite a show. 
I'm feeling different and quite light. 
The ship is putting up a fight. ' ' 

The bucking started in the rear, 
Ground Control — they could not hear. 
The Pilot made a sound of fear, 
And to his eyes there came a tear. 

"Ground Control, what should I do? 

I feel the decision is up to you. 

I'll do anything you say. 

Ground Control, she's breaking 'way. ' ' 

"I'm nearing our native sun. 

Ground Control, something has gone wrong! " 

The lights, they flashed and flamed, 
The engine rocked and strained. 
As he started falling from the sky, 
Pilot felt the time to die. 

Flames licked the plexiglass. 
Pilot knew he must act fast. 
But he knew it was to late. 
Pilot knew his final fate. 

As Pilot smashed into the earth, 
Somewhere in time there was a birth. 
As Pilot closed his eyes and died, 
Somewhere, that time, a baby cried. 

They picked the pieces of a broken man, 
Off the ground of some forbidden land, 
Threw rum in an empty garbage can 
And went to where it all began. 

No one tried 
As Pilot died. 
A mother sighed 
As her baby cried. 

The years, they came like ocean waves. - 

Young men died and other saved. 

Yet no one visits Pilots grave, 

The one that's marked merely — ' 'Brave' ' .

Don 't go empty handed to Rocky Horror 

Tuesday, September 2, 1980 BEACHCOMBER - 5 

By Angee Morris 
Feature Editor 

Though there has been much written about 
the Rocky Horror Picture Show, it must still be 
seen to be believed. The rumors that this film 
has become a cult, that uninhibited behavior is 
displayed by most members of the audience, 
and that it is a unique experience are all true. 

Based loosely on the story of Frankenstein, 
the movie includes both homosexual and 
heterosexual overtones and an unusual 
soundtrack. However, what makes Rocky 
Horror so different from the usual horror movie 
is the audience participation. An opening scene 
depicts a wedding. Members of the audience, 
equipped with rice, create a hail shower of the 
grain. A young couple's car breaks down in a 
rain storm. The young woman shields her hair 
from the weather with a newspaper. The 
audience dons newspapers also, and proceeds to 
recreate the rain with water pistols. Similar 
audience participation continues throughout the 

The acting in this film is as purposefully 
overdramatic as the costumes are bizzare. A 
good deal of the dialogue is left open for 
audience response. And respond it does. 
Several persons have seen the movie enough 
times to have completely memorized the 
dialogue, the audience responses, and the 
songs. A few participants (between 20 and 30) 
actually stand beneath the screen and perform 
many of the songs (in complete costume and 
makeup) with the actors. 

Not tar along into the story, one may find 
himself joining in the mayhem and thoroughly 
enjoying it. For a "first-timer" who wishes to 
indulge himself completely, this list of 
equipment may prove helpful. This film 
requires a bag of rice, something with which to 
spray water, newspaper, a roll of toilet tissue, a 
cigarette lighter, and an adventurous spirit. 

Dang@rfield devastates Caddy Shack 

By Angee Morris 

Feature Editor 

Although Caddy Shack will 
probably not win any awards 
for having an original 
storyline, it is a wildly funny 
film. Set at a golfing country 
club, this movie is about a 
caddy's struggle to move 
economically upward. 

The cast boasts of such 
comedians as Chevy Chase, 
Ted Knight, and Bill Murray. 
Chase is in good form, 
although the scene with 
Murray and Chase is weak and 
lacking in real humor. In fact, 
Murray's character appears to 
be an afterthought on the part 
of the writers. However, the 
real gem in this array of stars 

is Rodney Dangerfield. Dan- 
gerfield is in perpetual motion 
as he delivers such devasta- 
ting one-liners as: "The last 
time 1 saw a mouth like that, it 
had a hook in it.", or after 
meeting Knight's grandson, 
"Now 1 know why tigers kill 
their young. ' ' , and to Knight's 
wife, "You must have been 
something before electricity. ' ' 

Overall, Caddy Shack is an 
amusing film and a celluloid 
triumph for former hairdress- 
er-turned-producer Jon Pe- 
ters. Those who have suffered 
a cinematically long and 
boring summer will appreciate 
this effort.

Take direction 

Through career planning... 

By Angee Morris 
Feature Editor 

If you're having trouble deciding on a career, perhaps the 
Center for Career /Life Planning at Lake Worth Community High 
School can help. The Center is a free service provided by the 
Adult and Community Education Department of the Palm Beach 
County School Board. This program is designed to bring the client 
from a state of uncertainty to a state of vocational awareness. 

The Center was co-founded by Linda Lopez and another 
counselor. When asked her qualifications, Ms. Lopez indicated 
that she has a BS in education and has been a certified 
occupational specialist with the school system for three years. 

Upon entering the program the client participates in an 
individual conference with one of the two counselors. The purpose 
of the conference is to explain the program, answer questions, 
and gather basic client information. 

The program consists of four "tracks". Track one involves 
vocational testing and assessment. Several types of tests are 
given, some of which are interest, ability, values, achievement, 
and intelligence. A private consultation is held in which the 
results are explained and discussed. 

Track two deals with personal and career values. In this track, 
attention is given to occupational guidelines or options. 

In track three the client begins a career information search. 
This includes obtaining information regarding education, rate of 
pay, and the demand of the chosen occupation. This is done with 
reference books and a computer system. 

Finally, track four is dedicated to employability skills. This 
track includes seminars ' in how to dress for success, resume 
writing, and completing a successful job interview. Track four 
also offers referrals to agencies for services or training and a 
program which allows the client to "shadow" his chosen 
occupation. In shadowing, the client is allowed to follow some one 
is his prospective profession for a day. 

Interested parties should contact the office of Roger B. Pelser, 
Assistant Principal for Community Education, at Lake Worth 
Community High School for an appointment.

Foreign students 
Organize club 


By Annette Massey 
Staff Writer 

The international students 
of Palm Beach Junior College 
were honored at a reception 
26 where foreign and 
iimrican students visited 
with lepresentatives of com- 
munity ethnic groups. 

There are 100-150 inter- 
national students attending 
PBJCbut the club has reached 
only a few. Karin Roemers, 
president of Students for 
International Understanding 
(SIU), welcomes everyone to 
be part of the club. 

"We're a social club," 
Roemers said, "but we also 
want to interact with other 
cultures, talk with members of 
the community, and event- 
ually get together with 
international students from 
other colleges in an effort to 
create better understanding 
among people from all over 
the world." 

She hopes students will 
open up to each other because 
this generation is the people of 
tomorrow. We need basic 
international knowledge. 

For anyone interested in 
being a part of the club, the 
next meeting will be Sept. 4. 

Roemers set a very strict 
rule about the club. "There 
will be no discrimination 
whatsoever. No matter where 
you may be from, you are still 
welcome. Everyone here 
comes to study. We all 
represent our country whether 
it be good or bad, but our 
country does not represent 
us," she said. 

Dr. Edward Eissey, presi- 
dent of PBJC, welcomed the 
internatiionai students in hope 
that college will provide 
academics as well as show 
them what America is really 
like. "Our campus is an open 
door to all races, creeds, and 
languages. We hope to 
produce successful human 
beings," he said. 

Students from many diff- 
erent countries attended the 
reception, The main reason for 
most of them leaving their 
native country was because 
their family moved here or 
because they came here to 

The treasurer of the SIU, 
Gloria Lopez, has lived in the 
United States for 16 years 
since leaving Colombia. She 
said that the main difference 
between the countries is that 
in Colombia the people are 
easy-going while here the 
people are always rushing 
"The purpose of our club is to 
have better relationships 
between the international 
students and the American 
students," she explained. 

Van Ly from Cambodia has 
been in America for 10 
months. He came here with 
his family to stay with his 
sister. Vang Ly feels that the 
systems are different. "It is 
more comfortable to live 
here," he said. 

All of the international 
students share one main 
feeling. All of them feel that 
this is a great new experience 
for them. 

Women receive grant 


Tuesday, September 2. 1980 BEACHCOMBER - 7 

By Marvin Morgan 
Staff Writer 

The PBJC Women's Center has a bright outlook with a new 
program specialist this year, Dr. Aiello. 

After the funds for the CEADA backed Project Speak Up ran 
out, there arose a need for a women's center. Dr. Betty Wolf 
wrote the state for the original grant in 1979. Today the center has 
a one-year grant funded through the Title in Higher Education 

The center's purpose is to help women in transition seek job 
readiness, career and personal goals. 

Dr. Aiello feels the need for women's assistance programs is a 
national problem. She hopes to reach a large number of people 
through television, radio, the postal service, and personal 
presentations. Counseling is made on a one-to-one basis. 

The center offiers courses such as: Job Re-entry Skills, 
Interpersonal Relationships, Assertive Communication, Manag- 
ing Stress, and many more subjects geared for women. _ _

Education for course dates, times, and brochures.

Funds to aid in roof repair 

Palm Beach Junior College will be receiving its much needed 
funds for Central Campus roof repairs, President Edward M. 
Eissey reported. . 

Eissey has been lobbying with the state Legislature for two 
years and has received sufficient funds for the repairs. 

Buildings in need of repair and their estimated cost are: the 
auditorium, $53,861;Cafeteria and Student Publications, $81,707; 
and the Dental Health building's eastern section, $29,528. 

There are 19 roof related repairs proposed. 

If the state legislature recognizes the need for roof maintenance 
and grants the requested funds, the millage set aside for the roots 
will go into other college renovations.

Faquir joins tennis staff 

By Mark Dreps 

Sports Writer 

Maqsood Faquir, brother of former tennis coach Hamid Faquir 
and Mary Faquir of the nursing Department, will be one of the 
tennis coaches for this year's tennis team. He also instructs eight 
physical education classes. 

Coach Faquir, who was a competitive member of the Uganda 
National Tennis Team for four years, has an interesting academic 
background involving tennis. 

Faquir attended his first year of college in 1971 at Lake City 
Junior College. From there he transferred to the University of 
West Florida. At UWF he obtained a bachelor's and master's 
degree, and was also the varsity tennis coach during 1974-76. He 
then attended the University of Louisville where he obtained a 
Ph.D. in the study of Exercise Physiology. 

In 79-80 he was a physical education instructor and tennis 
coach at John I. Leonard High School. 

When asked what he thought of this years tennis team he 
replied, "with a little hard work we'll have a stronger team than 
last year." 

Volleyball bounces 
Its way back 

By Steve Beverly 

Sports Writer 

The girls volleyball team begins their season 
on Tuesday, Sept. 16. Last year, the team 
encountered financial difficulties and had to be 
cancelled. However, this year, there will be a 
team led by Coach John Anderson. 

There are six in-state scholarships for the 
team, even though there is only approximately 
$2,000 allotted in the school budget for girls 
volleyball, Coach Anderson believes the team 
will make it big this season. 

The teams season runs from Sept. 16 through 
Oct. 27, and during this time the team will play 
approximately 14 regular season games as well 
as two tournaments. 

Coach Anderson could not predict the quality 
of the team because they have not been able to 
scrimmage against other schools and have not 
had very many practices yet. However, 
Anderson seems confident about the upcoming

The PBJC basketball team 
is preparing for the upcoming 
season. Head Coach Joe 
Ceravolo says that he has 
twelve players signed and is 
holding tryouts for other 
prospective players. 

Athletes at PBJC must carry 
10 semester hours and have a 
1.5 grade point average. 
Coach Ceravolo wants to 
eliminate problems which 
occurred last season 
involving ineligible partici- 

Players back from last year 
are Jeff Washington, Louis 
Fuentes, Dennis Graham, 
Chuck Pauldo, Paul Matton, 
Ernie Morris and Jim Castle. 
New signees are Barlow 
Hopson, Stafford Everett, 
Marcus Emmanuel of Paho- 
kee, John Braswell of 
Suncoast and Kerry Wortham 
of Milwaukee, Wis. 

The Pacers will open their 
season at home against Palm 
Beach Atlantic Nov. 3 at 7:30. 

condition the gymnasium at 
PBJC has been rejected due to 
high cost. Bids for air 
conditioning the gym ranged 
from $174,000 to $254,000. 

"Last year the PBJC utility 
bill was approximately 
$350,000 and we just received 
notice of a 10 percent increase 
from Lake Worth Utility 
Company; We are trying to 
conserve energy at PBJC and 
if we added the operating 
expense of air conditioning the 
gym, we would be defeating 
our energy conservation ef- 
forts," declared Dr. Tony Tate, 
vice president of business 
affairs at PBJC. 

Plans are in the making to 
improve the present ventila- 
tion system in the gym, with 
the possibility of new exhaust 
fans. The plans are not 
expected to be in operation for 
at least another nine months. 
Repairs to the roof and air 
conditioners for the offices in 
the gym are expected to be 
completed shortly. 
' Athletic Director Tom Mul- 
lins requested various repairs 
and improvements for his 
department. "Air conditioning 
for the gym would be nice, but 
it was not on the top of our 
priority list. "We really need 
an exercise and weight 
training room. It would help 
our athletes keep in better 
condition and would be an 
asset to the whole Physical 
Education Department , ' noted

Oilers to ground Eagles in 1 980-81 

By Robert Bryde 
Sports Writer 

Curtis Dickey, Johnny 
Jones, Marc Wilson, Billy 
Sims, Charles White, Perry 
Harrington, and Junior Miller. 
These are just a few of the 
exciting stars of the National 
Football League's rookie crop 
that will help to ignite an 
explosive display of offensive 

Can the Steelers make it 
three in a row? Will Ken 
Stabler be the missing link to 
the Oiler championship drive? 
Was Tampa Bay a fluke? 
These and other questions will 
be answered on Jan. 25, in the 
New Orleans' Superdome, site 
of Super Bowl XV. 

The following is a brief 
analysis of each item. 

NFC East: Philadelphia- Bill 
Bergey returns and Dick 
Vermeil must overcome his 
inability to handle playoff 
pressure. Eagles still remain 
class of conference. Washing- 
ton- Led by an improved Joe 
Theisman, the Redskins 
should easily qualify for 
playoff spot. Dallas- Cowboys 
are still a threat, but without 
Staubach, they will have to 
struggle for a post-lseason bid. 
St. Louis- Cards can score 
points and can challenge for a 
wild card spot if they can 
overcome a high turnover 
ratio. New York- Second year 
quarterback Phil Simms has 
potential, but his inexperience 
will keep the Giants from 
escaping the cellar. 

NFC Central: Chicago- A 
healthy Walter Payton is all 
the Bears need to win this 

division (a .500 record might 
be enough). Tampa Bay- Ricky 
Bell and an outstanding 
defense will keep the Bucs in 
the race. Coach McKay keeps 
telling us he can win with .an 
offense that's designed to 
complete only 35 percent of its 
passes. Come on, John! You 
can fool some of the people 
some of the time.... Detroit- 
Billy Sims should be worth a 
touchdown a game, but the 
Lions need to learn how to win 
away from Pontiac before they 
can compete for division 
honors. Minnesota- The Pur- 
ple Gang has hit the skids, but 
Bud Grant is lucky the Vikings 
play in NFL's most inept 
division. Green Bay- Word out 
of 'Titletown, U.S.A.', is that 
the Packers must win eight or 
nine games in order for Bart 
Starr to keep his job. So long, 

NFC West: New Orleans- 
Archie Manning is now the 
best quarterback in the 
conference. With Muncie and 
Galbreath, the Saints have 
best offensive attack in the 
NFC. Los Angeles- Pre-season 
walk-outs hurt the defense. 
The running game without 
Wendell Tyler is below par. 
The Rams will miss the 
playoffs for the first time in 
seven years. San Francisco- 
led by Coach Walsh, the 49ers 
will surprise. Steve DeBerg is 
at the helm of an exciting 
offense, and with a few breaks 
this underrated team could 
finish as high as second! 
Atlanta- Good young offensive 
line and the fine coaching staff 

are two bright spots. The big 
year is needed from Bartkow- 
ski for Falcons to be 

AFC East: New England- 
Matt Cavanaugh should take 
over for Grogan, but the 
Patriots will let down (choke?) 
when it counts at end of the 
season. Some things never 
change. New York- The best 
ground game in the league can 
only get better with the 
addition of speedster Jones. 
Pass defense still suspect. 
Todd will lead the Jets to their 
first playoff appearance in ten 

years. Buffalo- Quarterback 
Joe Ferguson is overlooked 
but rates right behind 
Bradshaw. The Bills still a 
year away from being playoff 
contenders. Miami- Patchwork 
offensive line leads mediocre 
rushing attack. Poor pass rush 
kills defensive backs. Why 
wait until the season starts to 
settle the i quarterback situa- 
tion? Baltimore- Curtis Dickey 
will help, but the team still 
depends on a healthy Bert 
Jones. New Coach McCor- 
mack's job is secure so long as 
Colt owner Robert Irsay 
doesn't give him a raise after 
the team loses a couple in a 

AFC Central: Pittsburgh- 
Chuck Noll's trading backup 
quarterback Kruczek could 
spell disaster if Bradshaw gets 
hurt. The running game not as 
awesome as in years past, but 
the intimidating defense 
remains best in the league. 
Houston- The addition of 
Stabler assures Campbell and 
tight end Barber a major role 
in the passing attack. The 
addition of Jack Tatum is not 
as important, because he can 
only play vs. the run. He is 
know for his hitting, not pass 
defense. Cleveland Brian Sipe 
controls an offense that is as 
good as the defense is bad. 
Playing the Steelers and Oilers 
twice a year doesn't do much 
for the Browns' playoff hopes. 
Cincinnati- Forrest Gregg is a 
stern disciplinarian who was 
run out of town when he was 

head Coach at Cleveland. But 
discipline is what the Bengals 
need; and a little character 
wouldn't hurt, either. 

AFC West: Kansas City- 

Another surprise! Chief de- 
fense is touch and rookies 
Brad Budde and James 
Hadnot will help to open up 
the offense. Denver- The 
Broncos have a new look of 
offense with McCuthcheon 
and Robinson in the backfield. 
Look for a trade soon. The 
defensive line is overloaded 
with talent. San Diego- Last 
year's playoff loss to an injury 
riddled Oiler team proved that 
you can't win without a 
running game. Acquiring John 
Cappelletti is no improve- 
ment. Seattle- This team is so 
slow, every time one of their 
backs carry the ball, they get a 
penalty for delay of game. 

Oakland- The Raiders draft- 
ing four linebackers in the first 
five rounds is proof enough 
that the defense is in trouble. 
Al Davis says that the Raiders 
will be competitive, but Davis 
also says that Jim Plunkett can 
still play in the NFL. Listen Al, 
if Plunkett was a horse, he 
would have been shot five 
years ago. 

Final prediction: The Hous- 
ton Oilers defeat the Philadel- 
phia Eagles in the Super Bowl, 
27 to 16. 

Religion on a 
public school campus? 


This is an educational ad paid for by the "People Believing Jesus CKrist" Club. 

What Is Man? 

Why not? Really, why not? 

There is no separation of 
religion and government- or 
separation from education- 
anywhere in our founding 

Rather, the "Declaration of 
Independence" defines the 
foundation belief system very 
clearly as God, who is Creator 
of all humankind- totally equal 
to those "Foundation Fath- 
ers," there was no God other 
than the one and only Judaeo 
Christian Jehovah- Elohom. 
{and I request respectful 
indulgence of our Jewish 
friends who revere God so 
highly they leave a - for 
"Elohim". Please, Jewish 
friends and students, help us 
impress that sacred name on 
this campus!) 

The "Preamble" so the 
Constitution pursued the 

specific qualities of life under 
the guiding, unseen but 
impressed Hand as it was to 
be established in the United 
States. Every desire for 
"domestic tranquility", for 
life itself as only God can give, 
for liberty in a free spirit and 
happiness as God's blessing 
poured on individuals of this 
great nation-to-be. 

The first amendment of our 
Constitution declares there 
shall be freedom of religion. 
All educational institutions 
were established for the 
express purpose of teaching 
everyone to read and write 
that everyone might read the 
Bible and witness to its life 
giving power. 

From week-to-week, we will 
give the historical, legal 
background of our belief 
system in United States. 

What is Man? A chunk of clay turning fossil ... a piece of 
plankton struggling to become ... a hominoid reaching for 
man-ness ... a homind marking territory ... highest of animals 
living by instinct ... lowest of angels marking earth-time? 

Why Read The Bible? 

The law of the Lord is perfect, 

reviving the soul. 
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, 

making wise the simple. 
The precepts of the Lord are right, 

giving joy to the heart. 
The commands of the Lord are radiant, 

giving light to the eyes. 
The fear of the Lord is pure, 
enduring forever. Psalm 19:8-9.

"Diving into the Bible Club' 

College women surpass men 

The census Bureau reports that the number of women 
attending college in the United States has surpassed that of men 
for the first time since World War II. 

The main reason for the increase is the large number of 
women over age 35 attending college. For the under 35 age 
group, enrollment is almost equal. 

PBJC has long been ahead of this trend with its courses 
designed for women. According to the last enrollment data, 
compiled in October 1979, women outnumber men 59 to 41 
percent at PBJC. The national average is a considerably less 
52-48 ratio. The bureau's data was also compiled from 1979 

Art on display at Humanities Bldg. 

A one-man show of the work of Paul Aho is on display through 
Sept. 22 in the PBJC Art Department Gallery. 

Aho, a former PBJC student, received a Bachelor's Degree 
from Florida State University, and a Master's Degree from the 
University of South Florida. 

Now a part-time PBJC Design Instructor, Aho has eight 
paintings in the show. 

The gallery, located on the first floor of the Humanities 
Building, is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through 
Thursday, and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays. 

The exhibition is open to the public, and there is no admission 

FACC elects new president 

John Townsend, coordinator of Continuing Education, was 
elected president of PBJC's branch of the Florida Association of 
Community Colleges (FACC). 

Also elected during the Aug. 28 meeting were: Robert Book, 
vice-president; Frank McLaughlin, Treasurer; and Betty Linn , 

The FACC is a professional organization in which every 
employee of the school, from the custodian to college president, 
can belong to. 

Art skills course to be offered 

An eight-week, Monday evening course in Art Skills for 
parents and teachers will be offered by the PBJC Department of 
Continuing Education starting Sept. 17 from 7-9:30 p.m. 

Kathe Shook, who received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree 
from Western State College in Gunnison, Colorado, will instruct 
the course, which places an emphasis on minimal cost, minimal 
materials and minimal mess. 

"We like to use materials which can be recycled or common 
househld materials, and creativity is stressed, " Shook says. 

"The techniques used may easily be adapted for elementary 
school children through adulthood, " she added. 

Some of the techniques include Repetition of Form, Mirrored 
Images, Three Dimensional Form, Marbling Techniques, Music 
Stimulus, and Literary Stimulus. 

The course is geared to give information to adults so that they 
can teach the projects to children.

Citing the existence of a 
"vacuum of unreality", Gov. 
Bob Graham feels all state and 
public officials should return 
to the classroom and get a first 
hand look at the problems 
facing education. 

Graham made this remark 
after spending a day in the 
classroom at Lake Worth High 
School teaching the wood- 
cutting and plastics class of 
Coach Nathaniel Collins. 

Graham said that he learned 
two things from his teaching 
experiences. First, he found 
that today's high school 
students are aware of the 
quality of education they're 
receiving, and its effects on 
their future opportunities. 
Second, Graham said that 
students were more aware of 

the school and its activities in 
the community and how that 
affects them. 

The governor also found 
that Palm Beach County has a 
great shortage of industrial 
arts teachers. He commented 
that the salary of an industrial 
arts teacher is not in balance 
with the skills that teacher 

This salary imbalance has 
caused teachers in the 
industrial arts areas to seek 
better paying jobs. This 
shortage, as Graham pointed 
out, is not limited to Palm 
Beach County. It seems to be 
common throughout Florida. 

Graham commented that 
Palm Beach County has an 
"outstanding school board." 
He also said that with support 
for Sen. Don C. Childers' 
proposed legislation to cut 

double sessions in two area 
high schools, Palm Beach 
County will be one of the top 
school systems in the state. 

Sen. Childers' legislation is 
to be voted on Oct. 3 of this 
year. If passed, the legislation 
will allow a new high school to 
be built in Lantana.The high 
school will cut down the excess 
students at John I. Leonard 
High School and Lake Worth 
High School. 

After teaching classes, 
Graham had lunch with 
students, faculty, and guests, 
including Superintendent 
Thomas Mills, Sen. Childers, 
Dr. Edward M. Eissey, 
president of Palm Beach 
Junior College, and Charles 
Collier, president of the

PBJC tuition higher 
Community college average 

By Jim Hay ward 
News Editor 

Yearly tuition at Palm 
Beach Junior College is $92 
higher then the national 
average, based on studies by 
the National Center for 
Educational Statistics in 
Washington D.C. PBJC 
tuition is $16 per semester 
hour, a 1.1 percent increase 
over last year. The center 
estimated that public two-year 
community colleges are ex- 
periencing a 1 percent increase 
and private two-year colleges 
a 7 percent jump. 

Colleges and universities in 
general raised undergraduate 

tuition a record 12 percent to 
$1,742 per year. The figures 
are based on a telephone 
survey of 494 institutions 
during June. 

"The 12 percent increase 
forecasted for 1981 may mark 
the beginning of an era in 
which higher education, is 
seriously threatened by both 
demographic and economic 
factors- projected enrollment 
declines and increased ex- 
penditures due to inflation," 
the center said. 

In other developments,. the 
annual Washington based 
College Board Survey of 3,200 
colleges reports that total 

costs of public two-year 
colleges are expected to rise 
20.1 percent to $3,123 for 
on-campus students; and 16.1 
percent fo $2,753 for com- 

Total costs include tuition 
and fees, room and board, 
books, transportation and 
personal expenses. 

"Frankly, we expected the 
increase in total costs to be 
greater, considering the way 
the rate of inflation has 
escalated," said Joe Paul 
Case, director of program 
administration for the College 
Scholarship Service. 

Federal grant creates newlMT lab 

A new Individualized Man- 
power Training (IMT) Lab 
recently opened at Palm Bench 
Junior Colege, thanks to a 
$28,000 Federal Vocational 
Education grant for equipment 
and staffing from the Palm 
Beach County Department of 
Adult and Community Educa- 
tion, reports Don Whitmer, 
dean of Occupational Studies. 

The lab, located in the 
Technical Building, is not only 
for students whose placement 
tests have shown a need for 
remedial help in English, 
Reading, or Math, but is also 
aimed at members of the 

Dianne Amato, who for the 
past year has worked in a 
similar Lab at the Adult 
Education Center in West 
Palm Beach, will be the lab 

"Parents of elementary 
school children who are failing 
by the time they reach second 
grade may want to come to the 
Lab to brush up on skills now 
being taught in grade school, 
so they can help their children 
in school," she said. 

Those coming to the lab may 
already know which subjects 
they need to work on, while 
others may prefer to take the 
Test of Basic Education 

(TABE), the results of which 
show the particular area in 
which they need help. 

The grant was prepared 
cooperatively by George 
Matsoukas, PBJC grants 
writer, arid Phyllis Ruszat, 
coordinator of Adult Training 
Centers in Palm Beach 

Persons coming to the lab 
do not have to commit 
themselves to regular hours 
but can fit lab attendance into 
their schedules at any time 
during the Lab's hours of 
operation, day or evening.

Stealth bomber now 
Unkept secret for 
National defense 

m ^*^ „~ thrcuph or a ne 

Its design relies on flat 
triangular planes and aircraft 
with short wings. It has the 
ability to diminish the radar 
echo" that aircraft have a 
tendency to give off. This is 
accomplished by means ot 
electronic jamming devices 
that also send out false signals 
to enemy radar. 

The "stealth" bomber, as it 
is known, features materials 
and coatings that absorb and 
destroy enemy radar waves. 
At the same time these 
materials also reduce engine 
heat that radar easily detects. 

The Pentagon has been 
working on it for the past 
twenty years and up until two 
weeks aeo it was one of 



best kept se- 

On Friday, Aug. 22, 
Defense Secretary Harold 
Brown officially declared: "I 
am announcing today a major 
and technological advance of 
great military significance. 
This technology enables the 
U.S. to build manned and 
unmanned aircraft that cannot 
be successfully intercepted 
with existing air-defense 

With this announcement 
Washington's "secret" went 
out the window. At the same 
time the Armed Services 
Committee suddenly became 
rather irate. 

Sen. John Towers of Texas 
charged that Brown's announ- 
cement was "politically mo- 
tivated and doesn't coincide 
with eithei a new break- 

through or a new commit- 

Senator Towers argument is 
well founded. When the 
announcement was made it 
appeared somewhat odd to us 
that the Defense Department 
was suddenly willing to 
broadcast its newest develop- 
ment in air-defense technol- 
ogy, for the stealth plane is an 
aircraft whose development is 
almost as revolutionary as the 
splitting of the atom. 

If the Defense Department 
is committed to working in the 
best interests of national 
security, why has it suddenly 
taken the position that it has 
on the stealth bomber? One 
cannot help but wonder if 
someone is not in fact playing 
election year politics at the 
expense of valuable military 

Library requires I.D. at JC

to be so difficult? Who would ever imagine a ^ «^.J™°^ ir that he be den ied the 
major project resulting while trying to check out 

a book from the campus library ? 

Such a catastrophe recently occurred when 
several students attempted to borrow materials. 
The situation irrated these individuals and with 
good reason. , 

One girl selected the sole book she needed tor 
a class project. On her way to the front desk, she 
dug in her wallet for her library card to present 
to the librarian. Greeted by a frown, the student 
was told her card was invalid because it was 
issued last year. The girl politely asked for a 
new one. What a mistake! ! 

New cards can't be made unless a PBJC ID or 
class schedule is shown. In -other words, a 
person must be .able to prove without a 
reasonable doubt that he or she is really and 
truly a PBJC student. On the surface, that s a 
good insurance policy for the resource center to 
follow. However, when materials are 

a real uiuucm ^.v.w- .... - - — f » 
identification, is it fair that he be denied the

E an interesting point. Who, m their ngta 
mind, other than a PBJC student, would request 
to see material on hold? The odds of anyone in 
the universe doing that are ttemendously Tow! 

Obtaining a computer read-out of all shidents 
names from the registrar would eluiinate 
problems in the future. This sys item would aUow 
for a speedy investigation and let students take 
home materials on the spot, ridding them of the 
mconvenience of having to make extrataps 

If this solution is not well received by the 
library staff then perhaps they can put their 
thinking caps on and come up with another idea. 
If it works, a lot less people will be up in arms.

Auto endangered species 

By Jim Hayward 

News Editor 

The future of the automobile is not bright. As the world's 
supply of fuel continues to dwindle, one wonders what will 
become of that great American treasure- the car. 

If we ever do run out of conventional fuel and the automobile 
no longer exists as we know it, there probably won't be any 
transportation problems. More than likely, new forms such as 
mass transit will be perfected and will be more economical as 
well as safer. 

The thing that will be hard to handle is breaking the 
sentimental attachment all men (and some women too) have to 
their cars. . 

What will happen to the joy of waxing, buffing, shining, 
cleaning and rubbing the car; and then having it rain? Enjoyable 
things like waiting in line for three hours for gas, getting shafted 
by the mechanic at the garage, and being pulled over for 
speeding will disappear forever. 

What can take the place of wrestling in the back seat with a 
date? Nothing can ever replace great traffic jams, California 
freeways, toll booths, flat tires in the middle of the night, and 
bird droppings on the window. 

What will happen to drive-in-theaters, drag races on Airport 
Road and being the first dude in your neighborhood with a hot 
car. It*s hard to imagine life without movie chase scenes, 
inspection stations, or A & W Root Beer stands. 

What will teenagers bug their parents to buy them? What will 
happen to those little dogs who sit in the back window with their 
head going up and down and up and down? Nothing can replace 
the demolition derby, parallel parking, and right turns on red. 

It is sad to imagine a world without the automobile.

Pacers set for f astbreak seasor 

By Bill Meeks 
Staff Writer 

Coach Joe Ceravo]o has 20 
players trying out for 15 
positions on this year's PBJC 
basketball squad. A large 
squad is needed to prevent 
squad problems in injuries and 
academic ineligibilities which 
tend to crop up. 

"We will vary in our 
offensive pattern in that after 
missed opponents shots, we 
will go into a fastbreak. If the 
shot is made, we will set up 
out of a 1-4 offense. We also 

have what is known as a four 
corner offense, but we only 
use it at the end of games to 
secure and protect leads or to 
guard key players in foul 
trouble," Ceravolo stated. 

The positions that players 
have on the court have 
specified names and Cevavolo 
defines them. Point guards are 
the ball handlers who bring 
the ball up court, while wing 
men handle or pass the ball. 
Pivot men pass or set up shots 
for the guards and forwards. 
Ceravolo is very optimistic 

about his team's chances. 

Coach Ceravolo offic- 
ially began pre-season work- 
outs with seven returning 
players and several talented 

Three starters — Louis 
Fuentes, Jeff Washington and 
Dennis Graham are included 
in the list of returnees. Others 
are Chuck Pauldo, Paul 
Matton and Jim Castle. Ernie 
Morris, who was the Pacers 
leading scorer in the 1978-79 
season is back after sitting out 
a season. 

Among the newcomers who 
are expected to give the PBJC 
squad added balance and 
depth are Stafford Everett 
and Barlow Hopson; John 
Braswell and Kerry Worthan, 
a sophomore who played his 
freshman ball at the Univer- 
sity of Wisconsin. 

The Pacers open their 
season Nov. 3 against Palm 
Beach Atlantic, one of the 
three four-year colleges on 
the schedule.

Intramural sports underway . . . 

By Steve Beverly 
Staff Writer 

This year there will be many intramural sports in which PBJC 
students can participate during the fall and winter sessions. Fall 
sports include flag football, bowling, racquetball, and tennis, as 
well as the annual Turkey Trot held prior to Thanksgiving. 

Coach Roy Bell is in charge of intramural sports and Ira 
Hubschman is the student director. Students interested in 
participating should contact one of these people or inquire at 
intramural office 4/k in the gym. 

Prior to the start of each sport, a flier will bepublishedlisting 
all the details of the sport and how to join. The flag football 
league is now forming, and bowling sign ups are scheduled to 
begin this week. 

Some sports being offered during the winter semester include 
basketball, bowling, racquetball, tennis, and volleyball. There is 
also going to be another multi-campus sports day, in which the 
main campus will try to capture the trophy that PBJC North won 
last year.

Intramural jousting lanced

The growing popularity that 
jousting enjoys apparently has 
not caught on with students on 
campus. Elsewhere, record 
numbers are attending jousts 
as spectators, and statistics 
show that jousting has 
surpassed leap-frogging as the 
number one participant sport. 
So why the disinterest? 
"Jousting has a dangerous 
reputation," says Englander 
Donny Brook, who happens to 
be the only jouster who rides 
both ways (a switch-sitter) to 
ever win a world title. "But 
according to the latest 
tabulations, this season we've 
suffered only 27 fatalities, 
while contact chess, in a 
shorter period of time, has 
accumulated over twice as 
many casualties."

SGA elections begin tomorrow 


Although most candidates seeking 
political office have to wait another 
month and a half before election day, 
this is not the case for 20 PBJC 
students vying for Student Government 
Association (SGA) senatorial posts. 

Polls open tomorrow and Wednesday 
from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and reopen 
from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. to 
accomodate night students. Because 

voting machines are unavailable from 
the supervisor of elections office in 
West Palm Beach, two ballot boxes will 
be used as substitutes. Locations for 
voting at press time were tentatively 
set for the Beachcomber office and 
Administration building. Students 
must have their PBJC ID card to cast a 
vote. Additional cards may be picked 
up in the Business Affairs office. 

Getting their "last bids" in this 
morning, candidates will address 

members of the student body at 10 a.m. 
on the SAC lounge patio. Contrary to 
last year, classes will not be cancelled 
for this event. 

Names appearing on the ballot 
include Deborah Harrell, Shelly Meyer, 
Michelle R. Defede, Ginger Palhof, 
Alan Benrub, Belinda Bray, Donna 
Culbertson, Maurice Ergueta, James 
Poole, and Don Rich. 

Other senate nominees are Richard 
Rienecker, Tracy Ryan, Rosuita Rauch, 

Lyndia Henson, Bruce McDowell, 
Beatrice Patterson, Beth Rosenstreet, 
Shery Grabbs, June Bhebe, and Trade 

Because of last years poor voter 
turnout, a mere 3 percent of the 
students voting, SGA vice president Ed 
Rigolo stressed the importance of 
casting a vote. "If we don't have our 
fellow students' support we'll get 
nowhere. I really hope all students will 
take the time to vote for their 
senators. ' '

Guide to Shogun draws 
Standing room only crowd 


Watson B. Duncan DJ. enthralls the audience 
during last week's Guide for Understanding 

By Bill Meredith 

For better understanding of James Clavell's novel and 
the mim-senes Shogun, PBJC presented "A Guide for 
Understanding Shogun" on Sept. 9 in the PBJC 

Co-sponsored by The Morikami Museum of Japanese 
Culture and the Japan- America Society of South Florida, 
the free piogram attracted a standing room only crowd. 

Mi. Larry Rosensweig, curator at the Morikami 
Museum in Delray Beach, handled the introduction. He 
described the Shogun series as "a chance to encounter 
another culture", and instructed potential viewers to 
view ShoRun's cultural differences and clashes in 
relation to our country. 

PBJC Communications Department Chairman Watson 
B. Duncan III reviewed the novel, opening with one of its 
many intriguing passages - "I did not choose to be what I 
am. It is my karma. Karma is the beginning of 
knowledge. Next is patience. Patience means holding 
back your inclinations to the seven emotions - hate, 
adoration, joy, anxiety, anger, grief, fear. And if you 
don't give way to these seven, you will fail. And you will 
soon understand all mankind, and be in harmony with 

Duncan stressed Japan's economic strength, and the 
fact that the Japanese are among our closest allies in 
Asia. He described the difference between Japanese and 
American women, and the "large gaps in American 
awareness and knowledge to Japan, particularly in 
contrast to the extensive Japanese knowledge of the 
United States." 

A brief discussion of 17th century Japan followed, with 
Dr. Peter DeGioat, lecturer at Broward Community 
College and teachei of Japanese at Oki Electronics, 
piesiding. The subject then turned to Zen Buddhism 
with Dr. Robert Schwarz, Professor of Philosophy at 
Florida Atlantic University An exhibit in the lobby of 
Japanese arms and aimor, from the private collection of 
Mr. and Mrs. Roy Strohacker, also drew a great deal of 

The Shogun mini-series will be aired on five 
consecutive nights on NBC beginning Sept. 15. The 
production will star Richard Chamberlain as Major John 
Blackthome, the first non- Japanese samurai warrior, and 
some of Japan's most respected actors, including 
Toshiro Mifune and Yoko Shimada. 

If nothing else, Shogun should give viewers some 
insight into -17th century aMevial Japan and its 
hereditary warrior class - the samurai. These men 
believed in dying righting, for "death is lighter than a 
feather, but duty is weightier than a man." 

A follow-up panel discussion on Shogun will take place 
on Tuesday.Sept. 23 at 7:30 in the PBJC Auditorium. 
There will be free admission and the panel will reserve 
time for questions from the audience regarding the 

Perhaps Duncan captured the mood of the samurai and 
of the series best in a passage from the Shogun novel- 
"Life is an escape from death, but only by living at the 
edge of death can you understand the indescribable iov 
oflife." J J

Board of Trustees 
Boasts diversity 

By Jim Hayward 
News Editor 

The PBJC Board of Trustees (BOT) remains slightly ahead of 
national averages in the areas of diversity and equal opportunity 
of trustees based on an 18-month study by the Washington 
based National Commission of College and University Trustee 
Selection Committee. 

The study, funded by a $155,000 grant from the Carnegie 
Corp., said 40,000 persons serve as trustees nationwide. In 
public colleges, 87 percent are white, 82 percent male and 56 
percent age 50 or older. For private universities, 94 percent are 
white, 85 percent male, and 68 percent 50 or older. 

PBJC's five person board consists of three men (60 percent) 
four whites (80 percent), and three aged 50 or older (60 percent) 
The board had two blacks until recently and was the first board 
in the state of Honda to accept a black. It always had at least one 
female board member.

Dr. Paul D. Thompson, a 
retired Air Force colonel, has 
been appointed special master 
by the Public Employees

Hearings designed to settle 
the six unresolved issues have 
been scheduled for Tuesday, 

Sept. 23, and Wednesday, 
Sept. 24. y ' 

Bargaining has dragged on 
since April 16. A rewording of 
the management rights clause 
is the main obstacle between 
the two sides. Union members 
have refused a 9.5 percent 
wage increase.

McKay in dismay 

"We've had about all the 
Washington thinking Florida 
can afford. It's time we had 
some Florida thinking in 

That was the campaign 
slogan of Senator Kenneth 
"Buddy" McKay that sounds 
so familiar. All of us 
remember the presidential 
campaign of 1976. We recall 
that it was some Georgia 
thinking that was going to act 
as the new broom on Capitol 

It's not a matter of mentality 
or integrity as much as it is a 
matter of being able to meet 
challenges that are of national 
concern. This is where the 
former governor of Georgia 
seems to have failed and also 
might be an explanation as to 

why McKay came in third 
place in last Tuesday's 

America has been foremost 
in paving the way for anyone 
to achieve status in political 
office, whether they be the 
one-time owner of a men's 
haberdashery or a former 
school teacher. 

It is now possible that 
during the past four years 
Americans have become less 
tolerant of this trend. Thinking 
held solely to a local and state 
level in Washington seems not 
to have pleased all voters. 

Buddy McKay's policies in 
Tallahassee have for the most 
part been well received. At 
one point during his career the 
Senator was voted the Most 
Valuable Member. 

Just before the Florida 
primary McKay issued a 
campaign flyer in which he 
stated "To own a home. To 
work a job or till the land. To 
raise healthy, educated 
youngsters. That's what 
Americans want." The Sena- 
tor's intentions are sincere 
enough but there are many 
Floridians who do not till the 
soil and will place emphasis on 
that last. They will regard 
their homes, their jobs and 
education as issues that 
icceive top priority. 

When it is time for the real 
thing we feel that there will be 
some Florida voters pulling 
the lever for thinking on a 
national scale rather than the 
Florida thinking that Buddy 
McKay has so strongly

Cafeteria manager seeks 
Better organization, meais 

Cafeteria Manager, Joe Nasti 

By Kim Davis 
Staff Writer 

"Better organization and more items on the 
menu" are cafeteria manager Joe Nasti's plans 
for improving the PBJC cafeteria. Nasti feels 
the biggest problem is the meal line. "The line 
is backwards," Nasti said. 

By backwards, Nasti means that the drinks 
should be at the beginning of the line and the 
hot meal menu should be posted so that it can be 
seen at the front of the line instead of at the end. 

His plans will not decrease the lines, but will 
make them flow smoother. 

Nasti, 24, worked in a cafeteria as a student. 
He later became interested in the management 
area of the cafeteria business. Now an employee 
of the American Food Service Management, 
Nasti is a native Floridian. He transferred to 
PBJC from Arkansas.

Florida's first public community college reached another 
milestone this week when it was announced PBJC enrollment

Cam pus thefts increase 

Due to the increasing number of thefts on campus, the chief of 
security advises students not to leave pocketbooks, wallets or 
anything of value on the seat of your car. If possible, lock your 
valuables in the trunk, glove compartment or at least keep them 
out of view. 

Security also asks that students refrain from locking bicycles 
to trees and posts because of the hindrance to lawn mowing and 
that bikes be locked to the racks installed this year.

Victoria Mary Montaltos and 
Jayne McCloskey, who have been 
blind since birth, think Braille 
numbers installed in the new Social 
Science and Humanities buildings' 
elevators are helpful, but are only 
the beginning in PBJC's improve- 
ment of facilities to aid the blind. 

Montaltos has had no trouble 
getting around because she tours 
the campus with her mother before 
each term to familiarize herself 
where her classrooms are. "I spend 
two to three hours a day learning my 
way around before classes start, "she 

Improvements she suggests 
include Braille tabs on different 

doors and wall corners stating 
location and use. She would also like 
to see some Music Department

Montaltos, originally from Miami, 
has lived in Lake Worth most of her 

She attended conventional schools 
through junior high with the help of 
Alma Lou Meerdink, who taught her 

She attended the Florida State 
School for the Blind in St. Augustine 
where she took mobility training and 
music in addition to her regular high 
school schedule. 

A PBJC student since 1978. 
Montaltos has more than enough 
credits to graduate. 

She thinks math is difficult even 
though all math courses are on audio 
tape. She had managed to get some 
work into braille, but geometry is 
more difficult because of her 
difficulty in reading angles. 

Both students tape lectures. 
Montaltos makes notes for herself 
from tapes on a Perkins Brailler, She 
has also used a variable speech 
recorder to either slow down or 
speed up tapes, and has taken tests 
at the PBJC Vocational Resource 
Center for People with Disabilities. 
Both have found the instructors and 
students at PBJC very helpful.

Female enrollment on the increase 


The desire for more 
education continues to spur 
more and more women to 
study new things- things that 
interest them more than 
washing dishes or typing. 
Campus interviews reveal 
women are reaching higher 
awareness today and realize 
the job market is expanding. 

Women are no longer 
inspired by secretarial duties 
as they have been in past 
years. The general opinion 
among most women inter- 
viewed is that men can make a 
decent salary with little or no 
higher education while women 

Julie Snow, a transfer 
student from Indian River 
Community College is study- 
ing photography, an interest 

she's always had. To help fund 
her studies, she works at a 
shoe store. "Older women 
often do not seem to think 
women know how to fit shoes 
to their feet," she said. They 
say ' 'I don 't want you, I want a 
man to wait on me. ' ' 

Snow selected photography 
as the focal point of her 
studies because she would 
rather do something she likes 
rathei than something every- 
body else wants her to do. She 
wants to be able to work with 
photography and support 
herself at the same time. 

In contrast to Snow is Ann 
Fotorny who has switched 
from art to nuising as she 
continues to look toward her 
horizon. Married 11 years, 
Fotorny says that her husband 
encourages her. She already 

has a degree from Florida 
International University. She 
began her studies at Palm 
Beach Junior College in a 1970 
evening class. 

"I don't believe in starving 
for art unless art's a rich man" 
she said. Fotorny decided 
against medical illustration 
nursing due to the lack of job 

A woman who wishes to 
remain anonymous said she 
wanted to go to college for 11 
years prior to her studies in 
Interior Design. She is very 
goal-oriented and takes all 
homework seriously. 

"I didn't like what I was 
doing and could not go to 
school and work too. It was too 
expensive too, " she said. She 
hopes to be able to do 
something that she enjoys, 

and at the same time make 
good money. She is unmarried 
and very motivated. 

Cappy Daoust, an enthusi- 
astic, energetic newcomer at 
PBJC, plans to become a drug 
abuse counselor or mental 
health technician. She finds 
her studies interesting and 
vitally important. 

She decided to come to 
school for self awareness. "I 
need to expand and learn. My 
children are growing up and 
will soon be gone. It's the 
empty nest syndrome," she 
said. Daoust looks forward to 
doing field work and is already 
investigating various possibil- 
ities in which she can learn 

Third year student Mari- 
anne Ellis does not recall why 
she chose mental health as her 
field. She is particularly 

interested in child abuse. 
"Marianne is interested and 
concerned about people. She 
believes people can be 
helped," said Dr. Franklin 

We live in a world where 
change is the constant. 
Nothing today will ever be the 
same again. Frightening? Not 
really. The techniques of 
success are learned ones. 
What is difficult for women to 
accomplish is the conviction 
that women can and will 

The power to turn day- 
dreams into realities can 
become a maze of depression. 
Fortunately, there is a way out 
in practice. Day by day, one 
day at a time, women of all 
ages are proving they do not 
have to settle for little dreams. 



Gemini an artistic, likable film 

Scowling in protest, Rita Moreno tries to keep 
Robert Viliaro from filling her plate as Sarah 
Holcomb looks on. 

By Jeff Falls 
Staff Writer 

the most likable, yet "artistic" film 
to grace the American screen in 
years. It is a comedy dealing with 
sexual mores, families and 
friendships and it is highly 
reminiscent of LA CAGE AUX 
FOLLES (set in southern Philadel- 
phia instead of Paris). 

It is very capably written and 
directed by Richard Benner, who 
received international acclaim for 
his 1977 feature, OUTRAGEOUS. 
Benner is Canadian by birth, and it 
seems somewhat ironic that one of 
the great pieces of celluloid 
Americana should be written and 
directed by a Canadian. 

The story conerns three Harvard 
students on Summer vacation; 
Francis Geminiani, the title 
character, is a poor Italian 
scholarship student, who is 
spending the summer working in his 
fathers', butchershop in Philadel- 
phia. On the eve of his twenty-first 
birthday, his girlfriend. Judith 

Hastings and her brother Randy, 
hitch-hike into town to "surprise" 
Francis on his birthday. The 
introduction of the affluent, waspish 
Hastings to Francis' very Italian 
father is one of the films high points. 
Well, it turns out that Francis is not 
too happy to see the Hastings; it 
seems poor Francis is having a 
sexual identity crisis and he thinks 
he may be gay. Judith is very 
understanding until she discovers 
who Francis is in love with; her 
innocent younger brother, Randy. 

At this point, the film kicks into 
high gear and its non-stop laughs 
until the final credits. Despite its 
hilarity, the film has a very 
sensitive, subtle underside, for 
which director Benner deserves a 
great deal of credit. It is never a 
"message" film. The title and 
setting are splendid examples of its 
subtle humor; Gemini is the symbol 
of the twins and opposites — in 
reference to Francis' sexuality, and 
its set in Philadelphia — the city of 
brotherly love. 

Madeline Kahn and Rita Moreno 
are splended as the eccentric but 

lovaole Italian neighbors. Alan 
Rosenberg turns in a perfectly 
tuned, understated performance as 
the title character. David Marshall 
Grant (who recently assumed 
Richard Gere's role in BENT on 
Broadway) and Sarah Holcomb 
(fresh from CADDYSHACK) are 
excellent as the brother and sister- 
Hastings. Timothy Jenkins gets the 
easy laughs, as the idiot-son of 
Madeline Kahn's Bunny. But it is 
Robert Viharo, portraying Nick 
Geminiani, Francis* understanding 
father, who steals the show. Viharo 
is a new arrival to feature films (his 
first major role was- in HIDE IN 
PLAIN SIGHT, earlier this year) W 
I'm sure we'll see more of him in the 

All in all, this is one of those very 
rare films that combines insight with 
comedy, providing a completely 
delightful film experience. The 
lensing is perfect, (by a Canadian 
cinamatographer, James B. Kelly) 
giving the film a very realistic but 
very theatrical look. It is a seamless 
film and a must-see— DON'T MISS

AH Thomson enlightens the 
meaning of music appreciation 
with latest effort "Take a 
Little Rhythm." This new- 
comer to what could be called 
soulful rock, has convinced 
many that he deserves a lot 
more exposure and the 
opportunity to record more 
albums like this one. 

Ali Thomson is a multi-in- 
strumental musician who 
wrote all of the songs on his 
album. He has not only tamed 
rhythm but also rhyme. 
Thomson's lyrics are as 
interesting as the music itself. 
It has always been known that 
there are those who compre- 
hend phrases beyond the 
magnitude of "I wanna kiss 
you all over." 

This album's variety and 
freshness will surely make it a 
success. "A Goodnight Song" 
is a bit ordinary, but there are 
no other disappointments. 
Some addictive renderings 
such as "The Hollywood 

Role' ' , a woeful blues number, 
will long be remembered. 
Thomson may have been 
influenced by Supertramp for 
their style has been assimila- 
ted on a few cuts like "Jamie" 
and "African Queen". The 
cut "Like Every Minute" is 
quite reminescent of Super- 
tramp's Crisis? What Crisis? 

An investment in Ali 
Thomson's "Take a Little 
Rhythm" will not be a bad 
one. As Thomson says, "Just 
sit back and let the music

Queen just playing THE GAME 

By Bill Meredith 

As a Queen fan for nearly a 
decade, I have always felt that 
the harsh criticism greeting 
each of their albums (and 
especially the last few) has 
been undue. Critics have 
described Queen as "pom- 
pous", "bombastic" and the 
"harbringers of idiocy", 
among other things. 

Despite this criticism, the 
band has remained one of the 
world's most popular live 
attractions, proving that 
critical acclaim means very 
little in rock music. Led 
Zeppelin and Styx have also 
helped prove that point. 

But on "The Game", 
Queen's ninth and latest 

poetry poetry poetry 

Annemarie Sarra 

One day soon we'll be 

Someday soon we'll love 

Though right now we are 

Always you are in my heart. 

the days seem endless till you 

are near, 
flnie goes slow till you are 

Ml the time I see your face, 
b everywhere and everyplace. 

| miss you so much, but I have 

to remember, 
pne day soon we'll be 

jiomeday soon we'll love 


Annemarie Sarra 


[ loved you but you didn't 

1 wanted to tell you but did I 

Sfou gave so little, I gave so 

I'll miss your warmth, your 

kiss, your touch. 

I thought at first it just might 

take awhile, 
I was hypnotized by your 

Many nights I spent crying not 

knowing what to do. 
I tried so hard, did you? 

It hurt so much to know you no 

longer cared, 
And everything we had, we no 

longer shared. 
It hurt so much to let you go, 

but your happiness means 

so much to me, 
So even though I love you, I 

have to set you free. 

Annemarie Sarra 

The hour was late as the child 

lay awake, 
Although honesty was best he 

felt his life was at stake. 
He reviewed the horrible 

events of the last few days 
The details of the funeral were 

engraved so deep 
They would never go away. 
He thought back, two days 

ago, when he and his 
played by the sea. 

He knew his brother was 
drowning when he saw him 
thrashing about. 

All he could think of, if I go out 
there I'll drown, 

It won't be just him. . . 

It will also be me. 

As all these thoughts raced 

through his mind 
He ran to his parents for the 

only comfort he could find. 
The child burst out his story, 

told them it was in his power 

to save his brother. 
How his fear held him back 

and he just let him be. 
His mother held him close, he 

cried out the grief and 
Whispered the words, 
' 'It should have been me. " 

release, some of the criticism 
being received is well-deser- 
ved. The album is a bit too 
basic and sluggish. 

A synthesizer mtro opens 
sid- one on "Play the Game", 
a b d which sounds too 
much like Lawrence Welk to 
be effective. 

But things get better 
quickly. "Dragon Attack" 
blends a catchy beat with brief 
drum and bass solos to 
produce the album's best 
track. Then bassist John 
Deacon introduces some 
Queen-style disco on "Anoth- 
er One Bites the Dust." 
Somehow Queen gets away 
with doing disco tunes (they 
have on their last two studio 
albums) while other rock 
groups can't, and they make it 
sound surprisingly listenable. 

"Need Your Loving To- 
night" is a rather yawn-indu- 
cing rocker, and "Crazy Little 
Thing Called Love", although 
a good song, is only filler. 
Radio stations had worn it out 
months ago. 

"Rock It (Prime Jive)" 
opens side two on a rocking 
note. Although the album's 
best rock song, it is hurt by 
lead singer Freddie Mercury's 
overuse of the word "honey". 
Maybe he's been listening to 
the Eagles too much. 

"Don't Try Suicide", in 
which Mercury tells a girl 
nobody will care if she 
threatens to take her life, is 
the best song on side two, 
while "Sail Away Sweet 
Sister" is a solid and powerful 

Guitarist Brian May's fine 
solo can't even save "Coming 
Soon", a simple-minded rock 
cut with a clumsy beat. 
Drummer Roger Taylor, us- 
ually one of the better rock 
drummers, seems bored here 
and on much of "The Game". 
Whether by his own choice or 
not, his creative involvement 
has decreased, and that hurts 
this LP. 

"Save Me" , the finale, is a 
fine song in Queen's album- 
ending ballad tradition, and 
one of the few tracks where 
Mercury seems truly inspired 
and inspiring. 

Yes, Freddie Mercury is 
responsible for the weakest 
part of "The Game"- the 
lyrics. For the most part, they 
are simple and repetitious- in 
short, his singing is good, but 
what he is singing is not. 
Mercury has a great voice and 
is an excellent stage singer, 
but his lyrics must get better 
for Queen to make another 
great album like '77s "News 
of the World". 

Guitarist Brian May (one of 
the best) has a good outing, 
just a few too many power 
chords. And bassist John 
Deacon does an outstanding 
job on what proves to be no 
more than an average Queen 

Recording and production 
(by Queen) are good, with a bit 
too much cymbal. Best tracks 
are "Don't Try Suicide," 
"Dragon Attack", "Another 
One Bites the Dust" and 
"Save Me", Album rated 7.

Looking tor a job? Maybe 
applying to the Youth 
Employment Training Pro- 
gram (YETP) will produce 
some successful results. YETP 
is a CETA funded School 
Board project designed to aid 
students in school (aged 14-21) 
in finding part-time employ- 

The positions open to 
students range from on 
campus jobs, like teachers' 
aide or working in the campus 
bookstore, to off campus 
employment, such as working 
with the Housing Authority or 
the U.S. Soil Conservation 
offices. Students may be 
placed at any number of work 
sites throughout Palm Beach 
County. Each work site is a 
non-profit organization. 

Skills necessary for a 
position vary depending upon 
the type of employment and 
the job supervisor. In many 
instances, students can be 
trained while on the job. 

Unsubsidized employment, 
oi permanent full-time em- 
ployment, with an agency 
depends on the participant 
and the agency. YETP can be 
used to obtain a temporary 
means of employment, or as a 
stepping stone to a career. For 
example, Linda Lopez, an 
Occupational Specialist for 
YETP, told of one instance in 
which a high school student 
participant was hired on a 
permanent basis with the 
Palm Beach County court- 
house. The student was put on 
the courthouse payroll as a 
data processor after working 

there for nine months with the 
help of YETP 

To enter YETP a student 
must qualify Student eligabil- 
ity is determined by family 
size and income. Most BEOG 
grant recipients are automa- 
tically accepted. Each position 
pays $3.10 an hour with a 
maximum of 25 hours. The 
employed receives his bi- 
monthly salary from the Palm 
Beach County School Board, 
without the deduction of 
Federal income tax. 

There are presently 15 to 20 
on and off campus jobs open to

The Legend and Legacy 
The man moves through the

time until it is time to do his 
job. Since he has been there 
for so long no one is concerned 
until for some unexplained 
reason he suddenly .disappears, 
from his job. 

The Legend, he is called 
because of his being around 
for so long he seems like a 
permanent fixture. His legacy 
is the experience he possesses 
and the wisdom he renders to 
the younger generation that 
surrounds him, nipping at his 

The legend and legacy, he 
sometimes wonders if it is 
worth it. The pain and the 
agony of watching the younger 
generations of his Mends and 
acquaintances begin to appear 
in every place he goes. 
The legend and the legacy is 

preparing to end his reign as 
Father Time beckons him forth 
to join him on his lonely walk 
through time. 

I really want to 
love you

I want to look behind the 

mirror of your eyes 
And see the untouched world, 
The world your words 

The secret of your smile. 

I want to know the pain of all

I want to share the dreams you

Everything you 've always wanted to know about sex 

By Cynthia Voisin 

Staff Writer 

If you're wondering where 
to find out about birth control 
and your sexuality, Planned 
Parenthood of West Palm 
Beach wants to help with the 
answers. They are a non-profit 
organization dealing with all 
ages, races and backgrounds. 

There are four mam thrusts 
of their program. The first 
area involves clinics which are 
held each weekday plus two 
Saturdays per month The 
services rendered include 
birth control, pelvic exam, pap 
smear, breast exam and VD 
testing. A fully licensed 
gynecologist and nurse practi- 
tioner are on staff Cost of the 
clinic is $25.00 and birth 
control devices usually fall 
below S6.00. Because of 
partial govt, funding, financial 
arrangements can be made if 

The second aspect includes 
pregnancy testing and coun- 
seling. An appointment is 
needed for this as well as all 
other services. A urine 
specimen must be brought in 
along with $5.00, at which 
time a highly accurate 

chemical test will be com- 
pleted within minutes. The 
client is then counseled 
according to her needs and 
goals. No results are given 
without counseling. 

Rene Burrows, Director of 
Counseling Programs and 
Coordinator of Volunteers, 
explains "Everybody is wel-

brother, lover, friend or sister 
but confidentially is always

band's consent for birth 
contiol oi abortion no matter 
what her age. 

"What we're all about here 
is choice people having the 
correct information and know- 
ledge given to them about 
human sexuality so they can 
take this information and 
make their own choices about 
how to live their lives. We 
believe people should have 
families when they want them

The third field of the 
program offers vasectomy 

counseling. A private Urolo- 
gist works with Planned 
Parenthood and the fee for the 
operation is $150.00.To re- 
ceive this service, the client 
must first be counseled and if 
married, his wife must be 
included in the counseling. 

The fourth component of the 
program is described as 
"education and information in 
the common outreach". Rep- 
resentatives of Planned Par- 
enthood are concerned with 
getting factual, up to date 
information before the general 
public. They do extensive 
work in the local school system 
from the 7th grade up and also 
train such professionals as 
nurses, teachers and counsel- 
oi s. They are happy to address 
any group upon request. 

Other services extended by 
the organization include fertil- 
ity counseling and also a 
natural childbirth program for 
teenaged parents with or 
without partners, which will 
begin in October.

Pacers set to swing into action 

By Mark Dreps 
Staff Writer 

After finishing third in division IV play last season, the PBJC 
baseball team and Coach Dusty Rhodes started training for this 
year. Approximately 60 players, including veterans, transfers, 
and walk-ons are trying out. The first cut was made last week and 
another will follow before the season officially begins in January. 

The team will consist of 25 players. Pre-season training started 
at the beginning of the school year, but most of the players have 
been training all year round. Their training consists of 
calisthenics, running, 6-minute mile, windsprints and intrasquad 

"It's a great way to get in shape," said returning pitcher Scott 
Mikesh. "Pre-season training starts easy in the beginning but 
gets rougher as the season draws nearer," said transfer Eddie 

Although the Pacers have lost many starting players from last 
season, Rhodes still feels he will have a winning team. 

Coach Rhodes is also looking for an equipment manager. The 
team will pay the individual's book tuition.

"A bushel of wheat

Holler T!" 

That was the warning cry we 
called when playing "Hide-

answered "I" in some 
disguised way to avoid 
detection, "It" tried to 
identify the voice and location 
when recounting — usually a 
fast hop-skip-jump-to-100. 
Then the same call was issued. 
With no replies, the seeker 
tried to be eyes in every 
direction at once. Seeing even 
a part of a hider's clothing, the 
seeker called the name and 
both ran pell-mell to the goal. 
If the seeker made it to the 
goal first and called the name, 
the hider became the next 
"it." But if the hider reached 
the goal first, he or she call

Electric surcharge causes uproar 

Lake Worth utility to 

Raise rates 10 percent 

Staff Writer 

On July 28, the Lake Worth 
Utility Authority gave its 
unanimous approval to reso- 
lution U-18-80, a measure 
"establishing a 10 percent 
sur-charge on electric service 
outside the city limits of Lake 

The resolution's passage 
caught PBJC administration 
off guard simply because the 
fiscal budget has been 
approved by the District Board 
of Trustees (BOT) and leaves 
little room for an increase of 
expenses totaling $35,000 
more per year. 

The surcharge will come 
before the Board of Trustees 
during their September meet- 
ing Wednesday. The board 
will receive communications 
from Lake Worth Utilities 
including copies of the July 28 

"I feel that they (Lake 
Worth utility should notify 
their customers in advance of 
any rate adjustment or 
increase," President Edward 
M. Eissey said. 

After several attempts, Lake 
Worth City Manager and 
Utilities Director Larry Rob- 
bins was reached for comment 
by the Beachcomber. Robbins 
justified the surcharge by 
noting that there had been an 
increase of costs to provide 
electrical service outside the 
city limits. 

A check with George 
Hannah, consumer affairs 
director at the Public Service 
Commission (PSC) in Talla- 
hassee, revealed that while 
the PSC does not govern 
utilities within a municipality 
it still must see a copy of the 
rate schedule and structure 
when a rate adjustment is to- 
be imposed. 


"We will present a copy of 
our rate schedule and 
structure to the commission as 
soon as we update the tariff 
books," Robbins said. 

On Aug. 21 the assistant 
manager of business affairs at 
Lake Worth Utilities sent 
Dr Tony Tate a letter informing 
him that the resolution to 
place a surcharge on base 
rates of those served outside 
the city limits had been

Paddock fills in 
For ailing Carter 

News Editor 

Editorial Comment Page 2 

Supporters of President Jimmy Carter received another bad 
blow of sorts when the president's son Chip cancelled his 
campaign speech scheduled for the Palm Beach Junior College 
SAC Lounge on Monday, Sept. 15. 

All was not lost however, as local businessman Paul Paddock 
filled in for Carter in kicking off the fall political campaign. Chip 
could not make the trip due to illness . 

Paddock, of Paddock and Paddock Investments of Palm Beach, 
explained his reasons for endorsing Carter and discussed the 
main policies of the 1980 campaign. 

Paddock stressed the importance of becoming involved in 
politics and registering to vote. "We have no one to blame but 
ourselves if we don't get involved," he said. 

The kickoff speech was sponsored by the PBJC Political Union 
which is organizing a voter registration drive as well as a "meet 
your candidates day" later this month. 

"I believe Ronald Reagan is an honest, sincere, hard working 
man, but he is not my choice," Paddock said. He believes 
Carter's experience and background give him an edge over 
candidates of ' ' unknown quantities. " 

Carter's programs concerning educational benefits and jobs for 
young people, and his stand on a minimum wage for youths were 
cited as campaign strong points. 

"Educational funds have been increased by 47 percent and 
bilingual programs in Florida schools have been doubled," he 
said. Carter supported the $560 million loan that came to Florida 
under the CETA program. 


Public Service Commission 
and will be referring this 
matter to the attorney for the 
District Board of Trustees for 

The matter of the college's 
legal position on the matter is 
now being handled by BOT 
Attorney James Adams. 

As stated in Eissey's letter, 
PBJC will do what it can to 
fight the added expense the 
surcharge means to the 
College as well as students 
and taxpayers alike. 

Local businessman Paul Paddock 

Allison Adams and Joan Savino, chairmen of 
the PBJC Democratic Party, were present at the 
speech, along with Edwin Pugh, advisor of 
PBJC's political union. 

Students can register to vote any day prior to 
Oct. 4 in Dan Hendricks' office, BA 131. The 
cafeteria will be the site of registration drives on 
Monday, Sept.29 , Thursday, Oct. 2 and Friday, 
Oct. 3. 

SGA senators 
Sworn in 

By Mlchele Kurteff 

Fifteen victorious student senators were 
sworn in Thursday afternoon following many 
weeks of campaigning and two days of voting. 

Triumphant in their quest to win an SGA seat 
were Alan Benrubi, June Bhebe, Belinda Bray, 
Donna Culbertson, Sherry Grubbs, Lyndia 
Henson, Debbie Harrell, and Trade Ingram., 
Bruce McDowell, James Poole, Richard 
Reinecker, Tracy Ryan, Rosevita Rauch, and 
Don Rich. 

Action at the polls was as slow as it has been 
in past years. SGA executive board officials 
estimate the turnout to be approximately five 
percent of the students. 

"SGA ought to get students involved. I'm 
going to make myself available to students to 
listen to what's on their minds," said Sen. 

Sen. Rich said, "I would like to see the radio 
station brought back to life, and liven up the 
SAC lounge." 

"I'm less concerned with the past and more 
concerned about what can be done now. I'm 
interested in having concerts during the day and 
forums with various speakers," said Sen 

The first meeting is this afternoon at 2 p.m. in 
Conference Room B on the second floor of the 
Administration Building. All students are 

The new $1,200 scholar- 
ships aimed at encouraging 
the state's top students to 
attend Florida universities 
won't be available until winter 
semester, and then they may 
be restricted mainly to 
freshmen, Deputy Education 
Commissioner Roger Nichols 

The Department of Educa- 
tion planned on offering the 
scholarships that were ap- 
proved by the 1980 Legislature 
immediately, but officials 
discovered two weeks ago that 
thousands more students than 

Florida scholarships drastically cut 

originally anticipated would be 
eligible for the grants, 

Nichols said that Senate 
Education Committee Chair- 
man Curtis Peterson, D-Lake- 
land, and House Higer 
Education Committee Chair- 
woman Beverly Burnsed, 
D-Lakeland, want the Legis- 
lature to resolve the problem 
when lawmakers return to 
"Tallahassee following " the" 
November elections for an 
organizational session. 

Nichols quoted Burnsed as 
saying she favored restricting 
the scholarships to "first time 
in college people. ' ' That would 

restrict the grants to mostly 

Lawmakers however could 
set another priority system 
such as a first come first serve 
basis, or they could pro-rate 
the grants to stretch out the 
available funds. 

The Florida Academic 
Scholars Fund was aimed at 
keeping Florida's best stu- 
'"dent's from going to college out " 
of state by offering $l,200-a- 
year scholarships to those who 
maintain top grade averages 
and rank in the leading 2 
percent of their class. The 
Legislature said the scholar- 

ships would be given to all 
Florida resident students who 
met the qualifications. 

Lawmakers set aside 
$800,000 to fund the program, 
which would be enough to pay 
for scholarships for part of the 
year for about 1,400 students. 
But the final version of the bill 
made 4,000 to 5,000 students 
eligible for the grants, 
meaning Vner program would- 
cost $4.8 million to $5.8 

Nicholes said House leaders 
originally intended to hold the 
scholarships until the winter 
quarter, but the implementa- 

tion date was charged in the 
last-minute flurry of bill 

State education officials 
asked students earlier this 
week not to flood the Student 
Financial Assistance Com- 
mission with calls or applica- 
tions for the scholarships. 
Nichols said the office has 
been receiving -an -enormous 
number of inquiries from 
students who believe they are 
eligible. Some universities had 
identified eligible students 
and encouraged them to

Carter campus visit cancelled 

Monday, September 22, 1980 BEACHCOMBER - 3 

One week ago today, PBJC was to be graced 
by the presence of Chip Carter, son of Jimmy, 
brother of Amy, nephew of Billy. 

For the second time in less than a year the 
young Carter backed out of coming to our 
campus. True, he did in fact show up in October 
of 1979, but that doesn't excuse him from 
playing hooky twice. 

Radio station WRMF announced Monday 
morning that Carter was a bit "under the 
weather' ' and wouldn't be able to keep his date. 

Yes , even the president' s son is entitled to get 
sick, however the question of the day is, was 
Chipper indeed ill? 

According to Ron Woods, a spokesman for the 

Democratic party, the young Mr. Carter was 
really sick. OK Ron, believe that if you want to, 
but we don't buy it. For all we know Chip was 
home either in the White House or in the rose 

Was Carter so "under the weather" that he 
couldn't give a short speech to students that will 
be voting in November? 

PBJC may not be the place to campaign as far 
as the Carters are concerned, but should we 
tolerate the standing up of the first family 

We suggest the Carters take their Geritol and

Registration under criticism 


By Jim Hay ward 

How many young men 
stopped at their local post 
offices this summer to register 
for the draft? Remember 
having to complete that green 
and white card with the threat 
of criminal charges hanging 
over your head? The question 
remains, however, why, with 
all-volunteer armed forces, is 
there a need for registration? 

When America's 19 and 
20-year-old men were ordered 
to register in July, Selective 
Service Director Bernard 
Rostker predicted that only 2 
percent of them would not sign 

A Boston Globe sample of 
postal districts across the 
nation, however, suggests that 
the registration order was in 
fact defied or ignored by 
approximately 25 percent. 

One million of the 4,076,000 
civilian American males born 
in 1960 and 1961 appear to be 
in violation of the draft sign-up 
law, which was requested by 
President Carter in his State of 
the Union address last 
January and enacted by 
Congress in June after bitter 
debate the Globe reported. 

Each of the million or so 
nonregistrants is technically 
liable for a penalty of up to five 
years in prison and a fine of 
$10,000. The penalties were 
highly publicized during the 
two- week registration period. 

Realistically, however, the 
nation's federal courts could 
only cope with a tiny fraction 
of these cases. By comparison, 
the government conducts 
about 40,000 prosecutions a 
year for all federal crimes 

Estimates of the men 
required to sign up were not 
corrected for alleged census 
undercounts. An undercount, 
however, would tend to mask 
noncompliance. Nor do the 
estimates of eligible men 
include resident aliens 
(including illegal aliens) 
although they were required to 
register and many undoubt- 
edly did. Again, this factor 
would tend to minimize 
estimates of noncompliance. 

The Globe attempted to 
gather data from a large 
enough fraction of urban, 
suburban and rural America 
so that errors due to youth 
mobility would be minimized. 
As for census errors, no one 
has accused the Census 
Bureau of overcounting. The 
figure of 25 percent noncom- 
pliance, given the caveats 
above, is probably accurate to 
within a few percent. 

Several weeks after the 
Globe announced its findings, 
the Selective Service announ- 
ced that 93 percent of all 
eligible men had registered. 
Rostker expects the total to 
rise to 99.5 percent within 13 
to 24 months. Their numbers 
were based on Census Bureau 

Now wait a minute. 
Something fishy is going on 
here. Was the Boston Globe 
that erroneous or is the 
Federal Government using 
scare tactics to persuade 
objectors to register? We 
believe it's the latter. 

The major problem peace- 
keeping forces have to contend 
with is the rentention of 
qualified personnel. Many 
servicemen and women are 
leaving at the end of their 
enlistment to find better 
paying jobs in the civilian 

Some military families live 
at or below the poverty level. 
The situation is expected to 
worsen due to the lack of 
funding for defense. Even 
with the recent 11 percent pay 
increase, our servicemen are 
falling farther behind their 
civilian counterparts. 

Incentives to enlist have 
regressed to a level where it is 
no longer an attractive 
alternative for the high school 
or college graduate. The 
proportion of high school 
dropouts among Army recruits 
rose from 30 percent in 1978 to 
41 .4 percent last year. 

Highly technical armed 
forces cannot survive without 
competent people to operate 
and maintain equipment to the 
level of a first-rate peacekeep- 
ing military. 

Serving in the Armed 
Forces is supposed to be an 
honor and a great place to 
learn. This honor is enhanced 

with the free choice of utilizing 
your time and abilities to keep 
this country free. A draft, 
unless used to man our 
country's military when we are 
attacked, can only cause our 
country to be divided and our 
servicemen and women to 
question their reasons for 
The only way to regain 

Dear Editor, 

During the first week of 
classes, the most common 
phrase seemed to be "I'm 
lost". But no need to worry, 
there was always someone 
around to tell the newcomers 
where to go. Thanks to the 
dedication of the Student 
Government (SGA) and other 

volunteers (who were often 
overheard saying, "How do I 
know? ! ! They only train me to 
hand out free drink passes.") 

Most freshmen didn't have 
much trouble finding class- 
rooms. Many of them wished 
they had stayed lost once they 
got there, but the SGA's help 
was much appreciated. 

When the trauma of finding 
classrooms wore off, the shock 
of the bookstore had just 
begun. Since every serious 
student must have books, the 
security guards surrounding 
the inner walls of the 
bookstore were kind enough 
not to shoot into the rioting 
mob of students at the cash

real shock stepped in- where it 
hurt the most, way down deep

Ethanol gets support 

By Jeff Johnson 
Staff Writer 

The PBJC Resource Development Council is interested in 
the development of a new type of synthetic fuel made from 
cattails. The new fuel is known as ethanol. 

The council has submitted a proposal to the U.S. 
Department of Energy citing the use of ethanol as a new source 
of energy. 

"The time has come in history when there is a need for 
alternate sources of energy. Ethanol is one, but it's not the 
only one' ' said George Mstsoulcas, a member of the council. 

With help from the Florida Cooperative Extension Service, 
the council has also set up an exhibition on solar energy and 
ways to make your home energy efficient. The exhibition will 
continue through September. Another exhibit is to follow next 
month. i 

Moses new 'college interpreter' 

By Kim Davis 
Staff Writer 

' 'Identify potential students, develop a recruit 
package, and enhance special activities" are 
some of Ronald Moses' plans for improving 
recruiting procedures at PBJC. 

Moses, the newly appointed minority 
recruiter, describes his position as being a sort 
of "college interpreter." He will evaluate the 
present system used to recruit students and try 
to refine it to benefit all four campuses. 

Moses is also going to work with the Student 
Government Association (SGA) and the 
Guidance Department. One of his main 
objectives in working with these groups is to 
form a basis of strengthening students' 
interaction. He said he hopes to "identify with 
the SGA and increase its awareness." 

Moses is a native Floridian and an alumni of 
Palm Beach Gardens High School. He played 
varsity basketball and baseball in high school 
and was given a baseball-track scholarship to 
Tennessee Technological University. 

Moses, 25, received a Bachelor of Science 
Degree in English-Journalism and a Masters 
Degree in Counselor Education Student 
Personnel from Tennessee Technological 
University in Cookeville, Tenn. 


Moses plans to improve recruiting procedures.

JethroTull and Yes - Classical rock bounces back 

Monday, September 22, 1980 BEACHCOMBER - 5 

By Bill Meredith 

It has been a strange and 
challenging year for classical- 
style rock and it's two best 
bands, Jethro Tull and Yes. 
Strange because both bands 
lost some incredibly talented 
personnel at about the same 
time - and challenging 
because both had to find new 
personnel quickly and record 
"comeback" albums. 

But with the help of some 
fine new musicians and their 
own immense creativity, both 
bands have made albums that 
can be classified as better than 
"comeback". Jethro Tull's 
may be their best in years, and 
Yes' is certainlv a triumph . 

Jethro Tull Deserves Their 

"A" - Reportedly feeling 
' 'frustrated and in need of new 
impetus", Jethro Tull leader 
Ian Anderson fired drummer 
Barriemoie Barlow and key- 
boardists John Evan and 
David Palmer during the 
summer, replacing them with 
American (gasp!) drummer 
Mark Craney and keyboardist- 
violinist Eddie Jobson, for- 
merly with Roxy Music and 

The firing of Evan and 
Palmer was a surprise, but the 
release of Barlow, an 
incredible drummer, was 
shocking. Many people (in- 
cluding myself) telt that Ian 
Anderson had lost his 

But Anderson must have 
known what he was doing, for 
Craney, and especially Job- 
son, exceed all expectations 
and help create a new sound 
for Jethro Tull on "A", their 
16th release. 

Side one mainly builds 
interest. "Crossfire" opens 
the LP, but does little more 
than showcase bassist Dave 
Pegg (who took over for the 
deceased John Glascock) and 
Anderson's vocal. 

"Fylingdale Flyer" uses 
harmonized vocals and layered 
keyboards to produce a very 
full and rich sound, and starts 
keyboardist Jobson on a tear 
that will last for much of the 
new album. 

On "Working John, Work- 
ing Joe", Anderson gets down 
to earth, something new. 
Much different from his 
minstrel-cavalier writings of 
the past, he becomes a union 
worker- "the state protects 
and feeds me, my conscience 
never leaves me.. I'm 
equal to the best of you, and

better than the rest of you". 
Ace guitarist Martin Bane's 
power chords blend well 
against Jobson's keyboards. 

"Black Sunday" is a fitting 
end to the side. Opening into a 
funky beat (also something 
new) Barre and Jobson take 
brief but startling solos before 
Anderson's flute harmonizes 
with the guitar down the 

If side one is good, side two 
is beyond description- one of 
the best sequences Jethro Tull 
ever has or will offer. 

"Protect and Survive" 
opens with a lightning-quick 
flute intra by Anderson with 
bassist Pegg keeping pace. 
Drummer Craney switches 
gears from low to high as 
Barre plays chops and long 
lead notes. 

But the real heart of the side 
begins with "Batteries Not 
Included." Jobson gets loose 
again, pounding different 
octaves on the keys as 
Anderson again uses harmon- 
ized vocals and mixes in a 
child's distorted vocal toward 
the middle. 

"Uniform" brings Ander- 
son to earth again, but Jobson 
shares top billing with his 
crisp violin lead and blazing 
solo complemented by Ander- 
son's fine flute solo. Craney 
ends with a barrage of drum 
rolls and plays the rhythmic 
lead-in to "4.W.D.(Low Ra- 
tio)", a humorous tale of 
automobile wheeling and 
dealing. The drowsy backing 
chants of "low ratio" are 
comical, and Barre is finally 
allowed one of his patented 
electric guitar blitzes before 
Craney goes back into his 
sauntering beat at the end and 
fades out. 

"The Pine Marten's Jig" is 
just a marvelous instrumental. 
Pegg pounds his bass strings 
as Anderson solos on flute and 
Jobson on violin, then Barre 
delivers the knockout punch 
with a wicked guitar solo. 
Repeated listenings will in- 
duce screaming and square 
dance fever. 

Just as you are about to go 
through the ceiling, "And 
Further On", a powerful 
ballad, brings you to land for 
good - a perfect ending to a 
near-perfect album. 

Originally intended as an 
Ian Anderson solo project, 
"A" plays down Anderson's 
flute and vocals, concentrating 
more on his great lyrics and 
Jobson's keyboard and violin 
playing - and what playing! 

Although Jobson insists he is 
only a "special guest" on the 
album and upcoming tour, 
Jethro Tull definitely benefits 
from his services. He, 
Anderson and Pegg are all 
great, Barre is excellent in his 
spots and Craney accents the 
group's new sound quite well. 

The production (by Ander- 
son and Robin Black) is 
flawless, and the best tracks 
are "Black Sunday", 
' ' Uniform" , ' ' Batteries Not 
Included", "4.W.D. (Low 
Ratio)" and "The Pine 
Marten's Jig." album rated 9. 

Yes Records Their Latest 
"Drama"- If possible, Yes 
suffered an even greater blow 
than Jethro Tull this year in 
losing lead singer, songwriter 
and original member Jon 
Anderson and keyboard gen- 
ius Rick Wakeman. Sure, they 
had shuffled keyboardists 
throughout their history and 
changed guitarists and drum- 
mers once, but never before 
had they lost so much talent at 
one time. 

Replacements were quckly 
found in the form of Trevor 
Horn and Geoff Downes, 
formerly of the Buggies (a 
New Wave group that 
recorded a perfectly awful 
single- "Video Killed the 
Radio Star"). A mismatch? Of 
course, but that mismatch has 
produced a fine album- 

In the tradition of some of 
their oldest and greatest 
albums ("The Yes Album", 
"Fragile"), a 10^ minute 
"Machine Messiah" opens 
side one much like "Yours Is 
No Disgrace" and "Round- 
about" opened their afore- 
mentioned respective albums. 

Irevor Horn does his best 
Jon Anderson impersonation 
on "Messiah" and is weak 
only in spots. Guitarist Steve 
Howe plays powerful rhythm 
and leads, sharing them 
occasionally with Geoff 
Downes on keyboards. The 
rhythm section is in top form 
as drummer Alan White plays 
the tough beat and rolls with 
ease while bassist Chris 
Squire solos in his impeccable 
style toward the middle. 
Squire is the only original Yes 
member left, and he has taken 
charge on ' 'Drama' ' . 

"White Car" is a dumb 
keyboard and vocal suite, but 
is only slightly over a minute 
long and is therefore excus- 

Squire is in top form again 
playing the intro to "Does It 
Really Happen?". Drummer 
White and keyboardist 
Downes are also good in this 
offbeat number, but the 
overall effectiveness is hurt by 
Horn's monotone vocal. 

Side two is better, opening 
with "Into The Lens , the 
LP's most recognizable a*id 
airplayed track. Squire and 
White lead in with a simple 
beat before White joins 
Downes in a more complex 
drum-keyboard mesh as 
Squire continues the original 
beat. Steve Howe then joins in 
with strong runs and Downes 
plays the keys and vocorder (a 
vocal- keyboard collaboration) 
very well. Horn's "I am a 
camera" chants sound a bit 
immature at first, but make 
sense - this is a very 
well-written song. 

' 'Run Through the Light" is 
hurt by having Horn on bass 
and Squire on piano, and poor 
production. But Howe is great, 
playing flickering acoustic and 
biting electric guitars. 

"Tempus Fugit" is the 
album's final and most 
rock-infested tune, and finds 
Squire getting an interesting 
sound out of his lead-bass 
runs. Howe's leads are quick 
and very good, and his rhythm 
guitar sounds surprisingly 
New Wave (without the keys 
and lead guitar, and with 
different vocals, this could be 
mistaken for the Police). 
Horn's repeated use of the 
word "yes" may sound 
egocentric, but only helps 
make the song more interest- 

Though Horn does not have 
the voice or imagination of Jon 
Anderson, he is certainly an 
adequate vocalist. He may 

even prove to be an asset, for 
his simpler lyrics are a relief 
from Anderson's sometimes 
hallucinated writings. Downes, 
although lacking the artistry ot 
Rick Wakeman, Patrick Moraz 
or Tony Kaye, is a capable 
keyboardist also. And the 
Howe-Squire- White trio rivals 
the best guitar-bass-drums 
lineups ever, including Page- 
Jones-Bonham, Clapton-Bruce 
-Baker, and Blackmore-Glov- 
er-Paice, Santana -Margen - 
Lear and Townsend- Entwistle 

Though not a great album, 
' ' Drama' ' is a triumph for Yes . 
Their new and slightly simpler 
sound will gain them some 
new fans, and their albums are 
bound to get better as the new 
Yes-men become more ac- 
quainted with the sound and 
mystique of their new band. 

Production (by Yes and 
Eddie Offord) is good but 
erratic, with a little too much 
bass on some cuts and not 
enough on others. Best tracks 
are "Into The Lens", 
"Machine Messiah" and 
"Tempus Fugit". Album 
rated 7 ]A .

Drop your guard 
for a minute. 

Even though you're 
in a two-year college 
right now, there are 
many aspects of the 
Army you might find very attractive. 
Maybe even irresistible. 

See for yourself. 


If you're thinking of eventually 
going to a four-year college, it's not 
too early to start thinking ahout an 
ROTC scholarship. 

There are 2-year and even 1-year 
ROTC scholarships available. 

They cover tuition, books, and 
lab fees. Plus $100 a month living 
allowance. Naturally, they're very 
competitive. Because besides helping 
you towards your bachelor's degree, 
an ROTC scholarship helps you 
towards the gold bars of an Army 
Officer. It's worth looking into. 


With two years of college under 
your belt, you can get preferential 
consideration for Warrant Officer 
Flight Training. - 

If you pass all the tests and 
qualify, you'll go through 40 weeks 
of rigorous and valuable training. 

You'll earn the distinctive bars of 
a warrant officer and the silver wings 
of an Army aviator. You'll have at 
least 175 hours of flight instruction, 
40 hours with a flight simulator, 4 
weeks night qualification, and 
enough classroom work in aerody- 
namics, meteorology and aerial 
navigation to last a lifetime. 

The result is a rewarding, 
responsible and prestigious position 
as an Army helicopter pilot. 


What you've learned in college 
has already earned you a promotion 
in the Army. 


It's true. If you join the Army 
with two years of college, you can 
start two pay grades higher. Instead 
of being an E-l with an empty sleeve, 
you can come in as E-3 with stripes. 

It means about $60 more a month 
in your paycheck. And a lot more op- 
portunity in the long run. Since you'll 
be literally wearing your education 
on your sleeve, your talents won't go 
unnoticed by your superiors. 

And starting out right can really 
help you make the most of the Army. 


You can get a $1,500 bonus just 
for enlisting in some Army Reserve 
units. Or up to $2,000 in educational 

You also get paid for your 
Reserve duty. It comes out to about 
$1,000 a year for 16 hours a month 
and two weeks annual training. 

And there's a special 
program that lets you fit 
your Army Reserve active 
duty around your school 

It's something to con- 
sider. Because even if you 
went to a two-year college 
because it was less expen- 
sive than a four-year col- 
lege, you know by now that 
it still isn't cheap. 

A few years in the 
Army can help you 
get not only the 
money for tuition, 
but also the maturity 
to use it wisely. 

The Army has a program in 
which money you save for college 
is matched two-for-one by the 
government. Then, if you qualify, 
generous bonuses are added to that. 

So 2 years of service can get 
you up to $7,400 for college, 3 years 
up to $12,100, and 4 years up to 
$14,100. In addition, bonuses up to 
$3,000 are available for certain 4- 
year enlistments in selected skills. 

Add in all the experience and 
maturity you can get, and you can 
see how the Army can send you back 
to college a richer person in more 
ways than one. 

We hope these Army oppor- 
tunities have intrigued you as well 
as surprised you. 

Because there is indeed a lot 
the Army can offer a bright person 
like you.

Make-over for a "new you

Or from rags to riches 






Angee Morris 
Feature Editor 

Within the pages of many 
magazines and newspapers, 
including the Poster section of 
the Palm Beach Post, a trend 
called the "make-over" is 
becoming more and more 
prominent. A make-over is a 
term that describes what 
happens when an average 
looking person is made to look 
attractive. This is done with 
the aid of a cosmetologist and 
a reputable salon. 

Not to be left out in the cold, 
the BEACHCOMBER decided 
to send the most average- 
looking member of its staff to 
Headquarters I for a make-ov- 
er of her own. The skills of 
Louisa Aloi, a cosmetologist 
with Headquarters I, were put 
to the test when our Feature 
Editor slumped into her chair. 

Picture #1: Here she is not 
Angee Morris. Why didn't her 
looks undergo this sort of 
alteration earlier in life? 

Picture #2: After the shock 
of Angee' s appearance wore 
off, Louisa thought it best to 
do her part for ecology by 
trying to drown our heroine. 

When that failed, Ms. Aloi 
shampooed, trimmed, and 
permed her hair. Angee was 
given a "stacked" perm. A 
stacked perm is a technique in 
which the perm rods are rolled 
at an angle; the bottom rods 
are rolled tightly and as they 
near the upper portion of the 
hair, they are rolled more 

Picture #3: The now dry 
perm is combed out in such a 
way that the illusion of 
fullness and volume is given. 
After a perm, the hair should 
not be washed for about three 
days. This is because the perm 
will tend to lose some of its 
curl and will then become a 
frizzy disgusting mess. 

Picture #4: Now to the core 
of the problem.... that face! In 
cosmetology, as in politics, 
when a problem cannot be 
fixed, it is covered up. Hence 
Ms. Aloi capably applies 
foundation to Angee's face to 
remedy the situation. " 

Picture #5: Louisa skillfully 
aplies eyeshadow to Angee's 
closed eyes. She tried to do 
this with Angee's eyes 
opened, but the screaming 
was unbearable. 

Picture #6: Mascara is nv£ 
being applied to a few littl| 
nubs that are trying to pasf 
themselves off as eyelashes. |

to believe that she is visits 
her dentist. >

combined help of Loutsf

appears to be cosmel 
surgery, Angee is transforrnt 
from a barely human-looku.

Future football fantasy fumbled forever 

a ■ ■ 

... Lack of funding puts end to football hopes 

By Ross Sanders 
Sports Editor 

No matter how big PBJC 
gets, do not look for the 
school to get a football 
team. Whichever way you 
look at it, it just doesn't 
seem to fit. 

There are too many 
pitfalls in the idea of 
lesurrecting a PBJC foot- 
ball team. First of all, have 
you ever witnessed a PBJC 
basketball game? Nobody 
attends the games. There is 
a great feeling of apathy 
among PBJC students 
towards the sports teams. 
This "ho-hum" attitude is 
not the fault of the students 
attitude. For a school to 
have a successful sports 
program (revenue wise) it 
must have living quarters 
on the school campus. By 
living on the campus, 
students have easy access 
to school sports activities. 
At PBJC, students drive 
from as far as Singer Island 
and Pompano Beach to 
attend games. 

It would be hard for a 
small two year college to 
put people into the stands 

at a tootball game. With 
football players that would 
be competing only two of 
their four years interest in 
the program would be 
minute. There would be no 
listening to the radio to 
hear whether a fellow 
classmate will be drafted by 
a professional team. There 
would be no bowl games. 
There will be no still 
competition from such 
powerhouses such as Notre 
Dame, Pittsburgh and 

A small school like PBJC 
would not be able to 
compete in scholarships 
with big football schools. 
The prominent schools 
would nab all highly 
regarded players just by 

Money needed to build a 
top notch football field is 
just not in the cards. The 
PBJC team would not dare 
play on a local high school 
field. The atmosphere 
would be too much like high 

Money to fund a football 
team is nowhere to be seen. 
PBJC is having enough 

problems funding the 
basketball and baseball 
teams. Which program 
would receive the most 
money? There are already 
problems involving PBJC 
officials and the baseball 
program because the base- 
ball team is complaining 
that it is not receiving the 
same type of money the 
basketball program is 
receiving. With a football 
team, the money pioblems 
would be astronomical. 

Colleges and Universities 
all over the country are 
having charges biought 
against them for illegal 
dealings with students and 
faculty. The idea of college 
sports becoming big busi- 
ness has spread to 
everyone involved in 
sports. No matter how you 
look at it, big bucks are 
involved in sports. A school 
that cannot furnish the big 
money for a football 
program will be wiped off 
the football map. 

With all the problems 
confronting PBJC, it will be 
many years before the idea 
of a PBJC football team will 
be biought up again. 

By Steve Beverly 
Staff Writer 

It is that time of year when 
stadiums all over the country are 
packed with fans watching their 
favoute football teams thunder to 

That's light, it is football 
season. With all the excitement 
that professional and college 
football bungs, did you ever 
wonder why PBJC doesn't have a 
football team? 

According to Dr. Howaid 
Reynolds, chairman of the 
athletic department, there is a 
state law which prohibits junior 
colleges fiom having football 
teams. Another reason for the 
absence of football is the 
tremendous cost of organizing 
and outfitting the players. 

Reynolds said that in 1966 it 
cost approximately $200 to outfit 
a single player and today it would 
cost close to $400 per player. If 
PBJC did organize a football 
team the total cost would be 
nearly $250,000. 

Many former high school 

football players that now attend 
PBJC were asked how they felt 
about the situation. One former 
Palm Beach Gardens player, 
John R. Williams, said , "1 am a 
firm believer in physical activity; 
and football, though expensive, 
may be 1hc most sliemious 
activity in our society. People 
thrive on action and a 
money-making project like fool- 
ball would help improve PBJC in 
both enrollment and student 

Many former high school 
players feel the same. They 
would try out for the team if there 
was one, however they do realize 
the high cost involved. 

11 PBJC did field a tootball 
team it would increase school 
spirit, but whether or not it would 
increase enrollment remains to 
be seen. Some of the staff and 
most students arc for a football 
team Coach Tom Mullins, 
athletic director, said ho is for a 
football team but due to the slate 
law and the high cost a team 
cannot be a reality.

How to attend 

A Miami Dolphins game 

By Jim Hayward 
News Editor 

While most sports fans sit at home on Sunday afternoons, 
their eyes glued to their television sets, there is a special group 
who make the journey to see professional football first hand. If 
you have any desire to join this elite group, here is a brief 
description of what to expect. 

The very first step in embarking on a trip to a Dolphins game 
in Miami is to order tickets. Fortunately, Dolphins attendance 
has gone down so a simple order form and S10 mailed at least 
three weeks in advance will hopefully corral a ticket. 

Leaving by car from Palm Beach County at least four hours 
before game time, you should be well stocked with a large cooler 
filled with beverages and food, a seat cushion, sun visor, radio, 
pennant, raincoat, and of course a white handkerchief. After a 
stop for lunch, you enter the Miami area and attempt to find a 
parking spot. If you arrive well in advance, your choices range 
from $10 right across from the Orange Bowl to $2 ten blocks 

When you consume half of your supplies in the cooler, it's 
time to find your seat in the stadium. Actually it is not a seat, but 
an 8 inch by 8 inch square on concrete with a seat number 
painted on it. Of course, after you've consumed half of the 
beverages in the cooler, you don't really care where you sit. 

It's now game time. If you're lucky enough to be seated by an 
aisle, you can make the desired pit stops and food breaks, but if 
you're seated near the middle of the seemingly 100-person rows, 
you're stuck there for the duration. 

The outcome of the game will also affect your enjoyment of 
your journey and put you in a better mood for the homeward 
trip. Even after emptying your cooler and discussing the game 
for hours, the traffic on Interstate 95 is too much for a sane man 
to bear. It's assumed however, if you plan to attend a Dolphins* 
game in the future, you're not sane - you're a football fan.

Yes, Rosh Hashana cele- 
brated on Thursday, Septem- 
ber 11, was the Jewish 
religious New Year, 5741. 
Rosh Hashana also ushered in 
a ten-day period of self-exam- 
ination and penitence. As 
beginning of The Days of 
Judgment, Rosh Hashana (1) 
calls Hebrews to worship with 
the sounding of the shofar (a 
ram's horn as instructed in the 
Torah — the Five Books of 
Moses), (2) declares God's 
absolute Sovereignty over all 
the universe, (3) stresses 
God's concern for man and His 
readiness to forgive sin, (4) 
urges Jews to be quiet and 
examine themselves in view of 
God's judgment for sin made 
clear on Mt. Sinai and (5) 
accept the reconciliation 

between God and man when 
all sin is confessed. In fact, 

many Jews go to a river to 
make recitation of penitence 
so that they can "cast into the 
rive" what they have 
confessed. This recitation, 
tashlikh, cannot be performed 
if Rosh Hashana falls on a 
sabbath day. 

Festive meals utilizing 
honey accompany Rosh Has- 
hana typifying Israel's entran- 
ce into their Promised Land "a 
land of milk and honey." 
Family ties are exceedingly 
strong among these people 
and the holy days keep 
binding them together in their 
faith today. 

Yom Kippur ten days hence 
from Rosh Hashana is the 
most sacred holy day of 
Judaism. That is their "Day of 

Atonement" (established 

during the Diaspora). During 
the time of Israel's Temple 
that was established in 
Jerusalem by King David 1000 
years B.C.E. )Before the 
Common Era), the high priest 
(only) went into the Holy of 
Holies on that day to finalize 
Israel's forgiveness of sin. 
Details of both holy days are 
found in the Torah. 

Historically out of these 
"Roots of Judaism," came the 
Christian Way. Each act and 
element anticipated the Mess- 
iah. A close scrutiny of the 
Person and Work of Jesus, the 
Nazarene, shows how he 
fulfilled every detail fore- 
shadowed. The great Hebrew 
prophets Isaiah and Zechariah 
declare that all Isreal will one 
day acknowledge the relation- 
ship of this Messiah.

Since the re-establishment 
of Israel in 1948, Jewish 
scholars writing in Hebrew 
within their land have 
produced 187 books, articles, 
poems, plays, monographs, 
dissertations and essays on 
the "historical Jesus." Well- 
known scholars such as Joseph 
Klausner and David Flusser 
have included Jesus concepts 
in their writings. So also have 
Hebrew-language novels by 
Schwarz-Bart, Shneur, Agnon, 
Kabak and others. 

Israeli textbooks published 
in Israel and used in primary - 
or secondary schools have 
never (1) charged Jesus with 
the responsiblity of building 
hatred between Christian and 
Jews; (2) denied the Jewish- 

ness of Jesus in their 
interpretations of Jesus as a 
historical person nor (3) 
misrepresented Jesus as being 
a true Jew — one who 
conformed to standard Jud- 
aism of his day far more than 
he deviated from it. 

In a translation of ISRAEL- 
German work by an- Orthodox 
Israeli scholar in 1976), Lapide

relations. He encourages

Utility surcharge presented to board 

By Kim Davis 
Staff Writer 

The 10 percent surcharge by the Lake Worth Utility Company 
was the main topic of discussion at the September meeting of the 
Palm Bead: Junior College Board of Trustees (BOT). 

The Trustees agreed unanimously to have college attorney 
James Adams begin proceedings for a judgement as to whether 
the 10 percent surcharge on electric service outside the city of 
Lake Worth is fair or simply arbitrary. 

Palm Beach Junior College is the company's biggest customer. 
The projected rate of expense for the college would be 330,000 - 
$40,000 annually. Research has indicated that there is an oral 
agreement between the college and the Lake Worth Utility 
Authority as to the rate at which the college is to pay. There is, 
however, no written agreement. 

Dr, Edward M. Eissey, president of Palm Beach Junior 

College, was instructed by the board to explore the possibility of 
the Florida Power and Light Company providing service to PBJC. 
His report on this matter is scheduled for the next Board of 
Trustees meeting in October. 

In other action, Financial Aid Director Hamid Faquir made a 
presentation to the board concerning scholarships. 

Changes in regulations now make basic grants available to 
anyone with no regard to financial background, said Faquir. 

Faquir also said that a new program is being devised for the 165 
Presidential Scholar students now enrolled at PBJC. A committee 
is currently being organized to develop a comprehensive program 
to meet the needs of these students. 

Eissey announced that PBJC was awarded $13,000 in additional 
fundingfor the Cooperative Education program. PBJC's program 
is one of three in a nationwide survey recognized for outstanding

For as long as anyone can 
re member it has been 
tradition for the PBJC Music 
Department to hold a 
biannual get-together with 
food and refreshments for 
student music educators' 
national conference members 
and others studying music at 

Another tradition is the 
source of funding for these 
activities. Funding has always 
come from the PBJC budget. 

This year, however, when 
music students started to plan 
their party, they found out 
they had to provide their own 

"When State Auditors were 


Lefha Madge Royce 

reviewing the fiscal budget 
they began to question the 
legality of the use of state 
funds for activities restricted 
to one department as opposed 
to something involving the 
whole school. They felt that 

this type of spending was not 
justified." Robert Moss, dean 
of student activities said. 

Although other members of 
the music department, includ- 
ing the band, orchestra, 
community orchestra, pace- 
setters, mixed chorus, and 
jazz emsemble are included in 
the functions, the auditors 
remain firm in their decision 
to not allow further allocation 
'^f funds. 

"I got the news that there 
was no longer going to lie any 
more funds available for this 
sort of thing second hand from 
Dr.Albee " Music Department 
Chairperson Letha Madge 
Royce said. "The students are 
being called upon to recruit 
members for various programs 

here. In doing so they must 
pay for their own gas. They 
are also responsible for seeing 
that they get time off from 
work. These students arc not 
reimbursed for this in any 
way," she said. 

the recruiting drives have 
taken students to schools as 
far north as the Benjamin 
School in North Palm Beach. _ 

"Our school enrollment is 
up 1 .000 and Dr. Oms Smith 
fecK that these recruiting 
drives have been very 

beneficial, ' ' Royce said. 

The decision to slash funds 
for individual department 
activities will pose serious 
difficulties for all departments 
in the future. On top of 
limiting what each department 
can do with state money, the 
decision also damages school 
spirit. The Music Department 
intends to keep trying, 
however. "We have a great 
bunch of kids here. 1 don't 
think anything cou/d get them 
down," Royce said.

something if he hasn't been given a chance to 
respond. "There isn't a person in this room who 
doesn't have a carte blanche opportunity to talk 
with the president. My office is open, ' ' he said. 

"The greatest idiosyncrasy that's followed 
me all my life is people going around griping 
without letting the president know," Eissey 

No matter what the conflict with a student 
may be, "We could disagree 1,000 degrees and 
it wouldn't affect my relationship with you," he 

Senators inquired about mileage monies for 
campus renovations which won't be received 
until sometime in March. They also expressed 
displeasure with the attendance policy which 
was a heated issue with last years SGA.

Don't cry in your beer 

"Don'f Cry in Your Beer" is the tune 18-year-olds 
will be singing when they are forced to go on the 
wagon Wednesday. The Florida legislature feels that 
the drinking age was not effective at 18 so it will be 
officially raised to 19. Apparently young adults were 
not mature enough to handle their drinking freedoms 
when given the opportunity. 

The United States is one of a few countries in the 
world which have laws regulating drinking age. 
Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, both U.S. 
territories, have no such laws. If the Florida 
Legislators wish to raise the drinking age, it should be 
upped to 21. The three year difference gives more 
time for young adults to mature; however, legislators 
do not agree. 

The drinking age is being raised by merely one 
year. BIG DEAL! One year will make no visable 

difference. The age should be maintained at 18, rather 
than waste the taxpayers time and money with the one 
year difference. 

Presently, if a person is 18, he can vote, buy 
cigarettes, and be drafted. The state is not concerned 
with young adults smoking and eventually getting 
lung cancer. 

The thought is, if one is old enough to vote and be 
drafted into military service, he is mature and 
responsible enough to drink. If you are one of the 
unfortunate ones to be affected by this ridiculous law, 
you have until tomorrow to leagally enjoy the pleasure 
of drinking. 

If law makers are really concerned with the teenage 
drinking problem, the only effective solution is to 
raise the drinking age to 21. 


To the editors and staff: 

For the past few years I have been reading the Beachcomber 
with interest in its news features, and opinions, but also with 
dismay at the frequent errors in grammar, diction, and sentence 
structure. Recognizing that membership on the staff of a college 
newspaper is an apprenticeship of sorts, whatever the position, I 
have chosen until now not to act upon that dismay. But I am 
prompted to complain about the issue of September 15, 1980, 
when I discover that errors have appeared in direct quotations of 
others! Unfortunately (because unfairly), such errois impugn the 
language competence of the one quoted, not of the writer or 

I refer to two statements attributed to Watson B. Duncan III on 
page 1. The first of these is even reported not to have been Mr. 
Duncan's; it is one of.... (the) many intriguing passages'* from the 
novel Shogun: "Patience means holding back your inclinations to 
the seven emotions... .And if you don't give way to these seven, 
you will fail." Surely, neither the novel nor Mr. Duncan said 
don't. In the next paragraph, Mr. Duncan is reported to have said 
(here are "large gaps in American awareness and knowledge to 
Japan...." Surely, he said of Japan. 

As evidence that I am not exaggerating the number of 
frequency of errors of the kind I am discussing, may I point out 
that there are at least nine such on page 3 alone: 

2. in cafeteria manager article: "smoother" should be more 

2. in campus thefts article: "your car" and "your valuables" 
should be their car and their valuables 

"the trunk, glove compartment or at least keep them out oi 
view" should be reworded for parallelism 

3. in Don Rich ad: "run around" should be runaround 

4. in decal notice: "their car" should be his car 
"then" should be than 

5.^ in facilities- for-the-blind article: "where her classrooms 
are' ' should be with the locations of her classrooms 

"different doors and wall corners" should be each door and 
wall comer 

"Geometry is more difficult" should be followed by some 
indication of what it is more difficult than. 

I feel you will continue to do yourselves and others like Mr. 
Duncan a disservice if you do not edit your copy more carefully. 

I want you to know that 1 also find some praiseworthy writing in 
the Beachcomber. In fact, an editorial about the Liberty City riots 
in a recent issue was so well composed that I used it as a model for 
my freshmen communications classes. The author is to be 

I have allowed this letter to exceed your prescribed limit 
because I needed more than 200 words to make and support my 
point and because it is not intended for publication (although it 
may be published, if you wish).

Editor's note 

One chickened out 

By Bob Cusano 
Staff Writer 

If the first 1980 presidential debate proved 
anything, it proved that there are two 
candidates who are not afraid to present their 
platforms to the American people openly and 
candidly. If the saying ' 'the meek shall inherit 
the earth" is true, President Jimmy Carter has 
the election in the bag. 

Ronald Reagan and John Anderson agree 
only on one major point — need for a peacetime 
draft. Their policies on other domestic issues 
are very distinct, there is no contrast. Reagan 
takes a conservative stand on the issues, where 
as Anderson crossed the political fence many 

Reagan's proposals for urban renewal give 
the responsibility of rebuilding the cities to the 
people who live there. Tax incentives and urban 
homestead programs would be used to return 
business and respect to troubled cities. 
Anderson believes excise taxes should be used 
to revitalize the decaying urban areas. 
Government would take responsibility for 
reinvesting the money under his plan. 

Throughout the debate, Reagan and 
Anderson discussed detailed examples of their 
platforms. Anderson, a 20-year congressman, 
believes government should be an overseer of 

the economy. Reagan, former governor and 
president of the Screen Actors' Guild, contends 
that the American people are intelligent enough 
to make their own decisions on their destiny and 
don't need government intervention or 

If Carter is trying to make the United States a 
two party political system, he is sadly mistaken. 
Not only is Anderson running as an 
independent, but a fourth name is entering the 
limelight. Libertarian candidate Ed Clark is 
becoming a force in a new and powerful party. 
Clark will be speaking at Palm Beach Junior 
College on Oct. 15. 

A new voicp with revolutionary ideas is just 
what our government needs to simulate public 
administrators. A book that best describes the 
Libertarian platform is "Restoring the 
American Dream," by Robert Ringer, now in 

Let's hope the American people realize that if 
a man is not willing to defend his policies in 
front of his opponents, he can't possibly lead a 
country that will face so many diverse problems 
during the next four years. 

Carter, we the people of the United States 
never promised you a rose garden when you 
were elected in 1976, but you are making very 
very good use of the one at the White House in 
1980. * - * 

EDITOR'S NOTE- It should be 
stressed that the Beachcomber 
appreciates any constructive 
criticism however, Dr. 
Young, we feel that your 
criticism is something other 
than constructive. 

We certainly appreciate 
your reading our newspaper 
"for the past few years", but 
we do not appreciate your 
implying that we err in the 

direct quotations of others, or 
that these "errors" impugn 
the language competence of 
our writers and proofreaders! 

Mr. Duncan's oral review of 
the novel Shogun was tape 
recorded by the Beachcomber. 
If you would care to read the 
story again, you would find 
that "one of its many 
intriguing passages" is not 
even attributed as a quote to 

Mr. Duncan. 

You say "Surely, neither 
the novel nor Mr. Duncan said 
don't" and "Surely, he said of 
Japan", but how do you 
know? Mr. Duncan has told 
the Beachcomber that he 
believes he did say "of 
Japan", but also that he and 
the Shogun novel did indeed 
say "don't". He also said that 
he sees nothing wrong with 
the word "don't" when used 
properly, and we agree with 
hira. By the way, did you 
attend the Guide to Shogun? 
And if you did, do you have a 
memory bank capable of 
recording exactly what was 
said there? 

We feel that Mr. Duncan is 
an extremely articulate man 
who is perfectly capable of 
saying "don't", and who is 
also quite capable of speaking 
as he wishes • not as others 
expect him to. 

If Mr. Duncan feels that we 
did a "disservice" to him by 
covering the Guide to Shogun 
and quoting him, then we 
would expect a letter from him 
telling us so. We have 
received no such letter as of 

As for your "evidence" of 
our errors on page three in the 

Sept. 15 issue, you do have 
some points, but we do not 
agree with all of your 
"corrections".!, "smoother" 
should indeed be "more 
smoothly" in the cafeteria 
manager article. 

2. In our campus thefts 
article, we use "your car" and 
"your valuables" because we 
are stressing an important 
point directly to the reader. 
Either way the passage makes 
the point. 

2B. You are correct, the 
sentence should be reworded. 

3. We received the Don Rich 
ad from Mr. Rich himself [will 
your next letter be to him?] 

4. In the decal notice, if we 
change "their car" to "his 
car" we would expect 
complaints from E.R.A. ad- 

4B. Our mistake- "then" 
should indeed be "than". 

5. You are correct, "with 
the locations of her class- 
rooms" would sound better. 

5B. "each door and wall 
comer" implies that Ms. 
Montaltos suggested that 
braille tabs be put on every 
door and wall corner ["differ- 
ent" and "each" do not have 
the same meaning] . 

5C. "geometry is more 

difficult" than the rest of the 
braille math courses mention- 
ed earlier in the paragraph. 

Although you have indeed 
brought some grammatical 
shortcomings to our attention 
we at the Beachcomber fee| 
that we are not a gramaticaj 
publication. If you were to loo|j 
at any professional newspaper 
on a given day you would 
likely find errors of the same 

We also feel that the critic^} 
equivalent of your letter would 
be for the Beachcomber staff 
to visit your classes and 
prepare a written estimate qf 
any shortcomings you migW 
have as a teacher. 

If a sentence or paragrapu 
gets a point across, we feel |£ 
does not need to b^ 
grammatically perfect. 

We are not machines, ah rt 
will never claim to be. 

The Beachcomber will not 
publish next week since th Q 
editors will be attending a 
convention in Tallahasse. 
See you in a week.

Cars out of gas with Panorama 

Monday, September 29, 1980 BEACHCOMBER - 5 

63 MI Meredith 

It was bound to happen. It 
had to. The Cats tefuse to 
budge from their New 
Wave-rhythm and blues style, 
and eventually the> were 
going to run out of good songs 
and things to say. Their new 
album, "Panorama", proves 
that the Cars have leached 
that point. 

While their ' 78 debut album 
ranks as one of the great 
breakthroughs and '79's 
"Candy-O" an admirable 
follow-up, "Panorama" suf- 
fers from poor lyrics and weak 
instrumentation throughout. 

The mellower selections 
have the most laughable 
lyrics. On "Don't Tell Me 
No", Cars leader Ric Ocasek 
has written "It's my party you 
can come, it's my party have 
some fun, it's my dream have 
a laugh, it's my life have a 
half. Even worse is "You 
Wear Those Eyes", with it's 
gem- "you do the pogo 
without the bounce, you got 
the name I can't pronounce". 

Only two songs really show 
potential, and both are 
rockers. "Getting Through" 
adds interesting lyrics to a 
bounding guitar line by Elliot 
Easlon, producing a humorous 
and catchy result, and the 
synthesizer introduction to 

"Up and Down" grabs the ear 
and holds intetcst thioughout, 
something few of "Panor- 
ama"!, tracks could be accused 

The test of the rock is weak. 
"Gimme Some Slack" has 
surprisingly good lyncs, but 
is weakened considerably by 
the simpleton beat ot drummei 
David Robinson and weak fills 
on keyboards by Greg 
Hawkes Possibly the major 
instrumental force on the 
Cars' first two albums, 
Hawkes has hit a slump on the 
new LP, playing, runs that 
would successfully accompany 
nursery rhymes 

"Down Boys" is the 
remaining rocker, and is so 
lame that it doesn't even 
deserve furthei mention. 

"Touch and Go" begins 
with promise, drummer Robin- 
son and bassist Benjamin Orr 
leading in with a playful 
off-beat, but the tempo 
changes to a simplei beat and 
Orr proceeds to play one of the 
dumbest bass lines he's ever 
had recorded. 

The title track is a slogging 
tale masquerading as rock, 
and is fai too long, while the 
two remaining songs are only 
recycled past. "Misfit Kid" 
works except for the amplified 
hand claps which were used 
on last year's "Let's Go", and 
"Running To You" is very

lemmescent ot "It's All I Can 
Do" , also trom "Candy-O". 

Sorry, Cars fans I have 
nothing against the band 
personally , but the fact is that 
w ithout producer Roy Thomas 
Bakei the Cars would still be a 
Boston bar band. They lack 
the ingenuity of the- Talking 
Heads, the power of the 
Pretenders, the wit of Joe 
Jackson, and the talent of all 
three. "Panorama's" main 
faults he in the writing, and 
Ric Ocasek is entirely 
responsible for that. 

But give the guys credit - at 
least they seem to know 
they're not rock immortals. At 
a promotional stop at Peaches 
Recoids and Tapes in Ft. 
Lauderdale last year, a friend 
got close enough to bassist 
Benjamin Orr to chat. "Hi, 
what bands do you like?" Orr 
asked. "Oh, Pink Floyd, 
Queen, Jeff Beck" she 
replied bravely. "And don't 
you get into the Cars?" On- 
persisted. "Yeah, a little" she 
answered, "but you guys get a 
little monotonous sometimes. 
"I know" said Orr, lowering 
his voice, "but that's what 
sells our records." 

Production (by Roy Thomas 
Bakes) is great, of course, and 
showing signs of quality are 
"Touch and Go", "Up and 
Down" and "Getting 
Through". Album rated 4.

'Red One' not a war film 

Still BRO-9 

Left to right: Griff (Mark Hamill), Zab (Robert Carradine), Vinci 
(Bobby Di Cicco), and Johnson (Kelly Ward), four young rifle- 
men wearing their First Division Big Red One patches with 
pride, learn to depend on their expertise and each other for 
survival. "The Big Red One," 

By Jeff Falls 

Staff Writer 


THE BIG RED ONE, written 
and directed by Samuel Fuller, 
is perhaps the finest portrayal 
of men during wartime ever 
put on film. It should not be 
described as a "war film", 
because in the traditional 
sense, it is not. "War film" 
connotes a large-scale, big- 
budget, action Film, dealing 
with national idealogies and 
not individuals. THE BIG RED 
ONE is nothing of the sort; it is 
a micro-cosm film which 
expores the devasting psy- 
chological effects of war on the 
individual, while ignoring the 
political rhetoric which per- 
meates so many films about 

Lee Marvin and Mark 
Hamill star in what at first 
appear to be somewhat 
stereotypical roles; Marvin 
portraying the tough old 
sergeant and Hamill playing 
the sensitive boy who doesn't 

want to "murder the Ger- 
mans". But it become 
ob\ i less than ten minutes 
into tiu. film, that this is not a 
standard war-film and that the 
Sarge and Graff (Hamill 's 
character) aren't so typical 

The film opens at the end of 
World War I, with the Sarge 
as a >oung private and the 
only survivor of a terrible 
battle in Southern France. The 
film then cuts into the middle 
of WW II, where we see 
Marvin as a battle hardened 
sergeant preparing an inex- 
perienced platoon for an 
assault on North Africa. There 
are only five survivors; the 
sergeant and four of his men. 
These five soldiers and their 
interactions through three 
years of brutal war and across 
most of Europe and Africa are 
the true subject of the film. 
The audience gets to know 
these characters so well that 
their individual problems 
seem greater than the war 

itself. THE BIG RED ONE is a 
truly unique film in this 
respect; we experience the 
true horrors of war from an 
individual, not a societal 
perspective. This approach is 
quite unique to the American 
cinema, though it does bring 
to mind Jean Renoir's GRAND 
ILLUSION and Bernardo 
Berulucci's 1900. 

Samuel Fuller is in his 
seventies now; he came out of 
a 19 year retirement to write 
and direct THE BIG RED 
ONE. It is an undeniable 
masterpiece, exquisitely pho- 
togiaphed by cinematograph- 
er Adam Greenberg and 
brought to life by Lee Marvin. 
Unfortunately, due to the 
somewhat dubious taste of 
local theatre-goers, THE BIG 
RED ONE will have left its 
first-run theatre by the time 
this review goes to press; it 
should be available at the 
discount theatres very soon — 

The legend's br ush w ith death 


In last weeks issue of the Beachcomber we failed to list 
Shelly Meyer as one of the SGA senators. We apologize for 
this error. 

By Angee Morris 
Feature Editor 

Hitchhikers beware! The 
legend is on the loose! While 
driving home from work last 
Tuesday night, Beachcomber 
staff member Bill Meeks was 
confronted with the sight of a 
scantily clad female hitchhik- 
er. Looking for a little action, 
Meeks picked her up. 

"Where are you going?" 
asked our suave and debonair 
hero. "Ft. Pierce," was her 
answer. Meeks turned around 
to make a grab for the 
voluptuous creature when the 
smart lady whipped out a .38 
calibre pistol. As she held the 
gun on Bill, desire quickly left 
his face, among other places. 

With terror in his heart, The 
Legend explained that he did 
not have enough cash for the 
turnpike. The understanding 
lass then allowed him to take 
her to Ft. Pierce via U.S. 
Highway 1. He dropped her 
off at a service plaza in Fort 

Once the little darling was 
out of sight, a scared and 
sweaty Bill Meeks hastily beat 
a path to the security office. 
He woke the security officer 
and insisted that a report be 

So for those who, after 
reading this tale of woe, still 
choose to hitchhike; Beware! 
the legend is out there.... 
watching... waiting. Don't fall 
victim to one of his reports. 


Major change? 

By Cynthia Voisin 
Staff Writer 

One of the greatest pleasures 
in life is doing a job to the 
best of one's ability. The 
easiest, most effective way for 
a person to accomplish this is 
to match himself to an 
occupation he believes he was 
born to. 

It's a well known principle 
of business that about 70 
percent of every job, regard- 
less of what level in an 
organization, is made up of 
things that one would rather 
not do. The other 30 percent 
has to really give a person a 
sense of satisfaction and 
excitement, otherwise he will 
not be able to force himself to 
do the other 70 percent 

Zeroing in on the career 
that's right for an individual is 
a hard thing to do. Examining 
interestes, taking stock of 
talents, how spare time is 

spent, and the subjects in 
which one excelled in high 
school are all good career 
indicators. So many of us have 
job profiles that illustrate a 
hodge-podge, hit and miss 
effort. One can escape 
confusion by narrowing down 
a career group that is within 
the realm of one's qualifica- 
tions and interests. 

PBJC offers an array of 
inteiest tests and the Florida 
State Employment Office in 
West Palm Beach can 
provide aptitude testing, both 
of which can also be quite 

Selecting courses that are 
even indirectly related to a 
major will help a career in the 
long run. For example, 
journalism walks hand in hand 
with law, mathematics, music 
and medicine aieinter-related. 
And lest we forget, on many 
occasions politics and acting 
are one and the same.

Running: one step further 

Monday, September 29, 1980 BEACHCOMBER - 7 

By Pamela Himmele 
Staff Writer 

Running tones the body by 
shaping the lungs, heart and 
other internal organs, but the 
after-effects do not cease 
there. The most fascinating 
part of the human body, the 
mind, receives an equal 
amount of exercise. 

Medical science still can not 
completely explain what goes 
on in the brain as runners' 
emotions are changed. There 
is, though, a direct compar- 
ison that progressing physical 
endurance increases one's 
ability to emotionally cope 
with problems better. Only the 
runner, in the end, knows and 
experiences the emotional 
high he goes through. 

At the beginning of an LSD 
run (Long Slow Distance- a 
technique introduced by 
Arthur Lydiard), the runner 
feels heavy and breathes hard 
and fast. The first few miles 
are a tool to get the run 
started. A change occurs in 
the latter part of the run in 
which the mind mentally 
relaxes itself as well as the 
body, though muscles are 
straining and hurt. The mind 
is now free to wander. Every 
thought is centered only upon 
oneself: thoughts about 
school, work, and personal life 
are contemplated, Soon the 
ominous and basic life survival 
problems are seen in a much 
more optimistic view. They 

turn into minor thoughts 
which can now easily be dealt 

The Marathoner states , other times depression, 
tiredness, a lonely ennui can 
be transformed into euphoria 
through running." 

There is still more to come 
for the truly dedicated and 
free-spirited runner. What's 
known as the "runner's high" 
takes over. It is said that 
twenty years of running 
experience is the prerequisite 
for some to achieve this state 
of mind. Many though, also 
fall upon it much quicker. 
"With optimum fitness, alter- 
ed states of consciousness are 
possible," states Mike Spino, 
Director, Esalen Sports Cen- 

When running in a natural 
environment, one begins to 
feel a sudden excitement and 
exhiliration for being alive, 
along with a wholeness with 
the universe. The nearby 
brooks, trees, and mere 
ground the lone runner 
pounds upon suddenly seem 
somewhat special and sacred. 

In an attempt to explain this 
genuine "high" (similar to 
drug induced), doctors have 
actually found through resear- 
ch that during running, extra 
amounts of a substance are 
secreted, due to the physical 
exertion. A mechanism then 
shuts off a valve which halts 

this extra secretion. The brain 
is then forced to produce 
another substance which 
counter-balances the over-se- 
cretion. The amazing result of 
this finding was that the 
body-made counterbalance is 
actually similar in chemical 
makeup to the man-made 
psychedelic LSD (Lysergic 
acid diethylamide- invented by 
the Swiss from the derivatives 
of ergot, a fungus which grows 
on grains.) 

Two sociologists, Andrew 
Greeley and William Mc- 
Cready, made an attempt to 
describe the fourth stage of a 
psychedelic drug experience: 

"There are episodes ot 
intense and immediate 
cognition in which the 
total personality of a 
person is absorbed in an 
intimate though trans- 
ient relationship with 
the basic forces, cycles, 
and mechanisms at work 
in the universe and 
gravity, cosmic rays, 
light, heat, electro- 
magnetism, cycles of 
breathing, circulation, 
digestion, day, year, 
life, death." 

There could obviously be no 
coincidental comparison be- 
tween the effects of a 
psychedelic drug, and those of 
the substance created by the 

Running is also described as 
a positively addicting drug (if 
used correctly). Jim Fixx 
described his addiction when 
he said, "So I, take that hour 
and run as if my life depended 
on it." Sometimes runners 
incur such tremendous pain 
that they choose to block it out 
of their minds, and not face up 
to it. This is known as 
dissociation, turning ones 
mind off from ones body. 

One Boston Marathoner, an 
architect, would thoughout the 
26 miles and 385 yards build 
a house in his mind, to keep 
from thinking of the pain. He 
would go through the 
step-by-step process of laying 
out the plans and buiding the 
home (making sure it include 
kitchen, bathroom, living 
area, etc.) If he had finished 
the home, but not the 
marathon, he would continue to 
make additions such as a pool , 
den, and doghouse. Though 
dissociation may mentally 
benefit the runner at the time , 
it is said to be extremely 
dangerous, for the runner will 
ignore any hints from the body 
that it is hurting. This results 
in neglected and serious 
damage. Association is the 
correct method in which one 
listens and is receptive to hints 
of injury to the body.

One may discover that studying 
photograpy is not cheap. A 35mm 
camera is needed, and one can count on 
supplying his own film and paper. One 
or two rolls of film will be used in class 
weekly. This costs between $160 and 
$3. per roll. 

Paper comes in different weights, 
and can cost as much as $8.50 to S15 
per pack of 25, 8 x 10" sheets. These 
can be cut in half. A student may use 3 
or 4 sheets per class meeting, 
depending on how adventurous, stingy, 
or sloppy he is. Learning to time 
exposures while using the enrarger 
may cause the waste of some paper as 

In Photography I, students need 
most of the. following in order to 
develop negatives: a developing tank 
($7), changing bag (if no darkroom is 

available) ($12), developing chemicals 
(S8-S10), thermometer (S3), funnel 
(S2), paper and film ($15 for original 
supply). Less than S50 may be spent 
on equipment, but don't count on it. 
Photo supplies are going up, not down. 

Miscellaneous items needed include 
scissors, can opener, and a towel (not 
terry cloth). Dust is the photographer's 
mortal enemy. Try to establish good 
work habits from the beginning. 

Assuming that the student is ready 
to make prints, chemicals for the 
printing procedure are supplied by 
PBJC and are pre-mixed. Space and 
time in the darkroom decide how much 
work can be accomplished per class 
session. Gene Arant, of the Art 
department, reports that PBJC is soon 
to get a new and larger darkroom. This 
one will include more and better 
equipment. The hew equipment will 
allow new courses to be taught.

Abject, I sat down upon the couch, trying to 
figure out this abstruse collection of fatuous 
vocabulary words. Using my adroit ■ and 
functional knowledge, germane to enervating 
study, I avidly began. To alleviate the baleful 
pain, a Moonie blithely performed a bumptious 
benediction. Feeling intrepid and full of 
lethargy, I proceeded to lampoon the harassed 
and gullible Moonie. Adament but gregarious in 
his badinage, he continued to castigate me with 
his bovine bromides. Being an agnostic and fed 
up with the cacophony, I shot the loquacious 
freak in a histrionic, fractious manner. While 
the deleterious drugs were reaching their acme, 
I cajoled my gullible girlfriend into a clandestine 
and dulcet meeting. When the amenities 
concluded, I dropped a limpid aphrodisiac in her 
bucolic drink.Sensing chauvinistic chicanery, 
she fulminated an ambidextrously slapped me. 
Because of her affluence and also her 
amorphous body, I condoned her enigmatic 
actions and forgot the whole abortive fiasco. My 
latent jingoism and implicit levity became 
heterogeneous decorum- when a dearth of 
incorrigible drugs became intractably benign. 
The equivocal cadence of my impious headache 
kept me in limbo. This auspicious evening, filled I 
with bathos has become a harbinger of I 
holocaustic frugality. My encomium for the : 
duplicity of the incipient vocabulary has become \ 
desultory and flagrant anger. My intransigent, j 
fecund mother (an anathema to my docile father t 
(the likes to disparge her) has become an 1 
anachronism of anthropology. Although I'm I 
becoming hyperbole in this esthetic essay, I'll j 
eschew ennui inscuciance with impunity. This | 
fortuitous arbitrary story is the epitome of j 
empiricalism and furtive badinage. My fetish

anthesis with concomitant emulation. I hope this 
cogent story has deprecated your itinerant

Pacer baseball set to swing into action 

By Brace McDowell 
Staff Writer 

The major league baseball 
season is winding down, but 
PBJC's season is just 
beginning. The Pacers opened 
their season Thursday, drop- 
ping a doubleheader to Indian 
River Community College 

Assistant Coach Eric Keller 
served as head coach while 
Dusty Rhodes was scouting in 
Wyoming. PBJC plays Brow- 
ard tomorrow at 2 p.m., one of 
only three home games. The 
team will play a total of at least 
18 games this fall before 
opening the official season in 
January, in which they will 
play 80-90 games. 
Last week, Rhodes trimmed 
the squad to 40 players. The 
Pacers have nine returning 
from last years team. Five are 
pitchers who had fine seasons, 
Jeff Blair, Sean Bauer, Scott 
Mikesh, Mark Koesters, and 


Jorge Vega. Blair had a 3-0 
record with no earned runs 
allowed in 25 innings pitched. 

PBJC is allotted 18 
scholarships for baseball this 
year with the majority of 

players coming from area high 
schools. Unlike other colleges, 
it has been PBJC policy to go 
out of their way to give 
scholarships to players from 
Palm Beach County. Parents 

pay taxes to support PBJC and 
this is the way the college 
repays them.

strengths this year," said 
Rhodes. "I am looking for a

Joe Ceravolo's players are

Hopefully Keith Foley can fill

A strong offense is 
necessary for a successful 
season, and base stealing ts 
one of the key factors. "The 
boys like to run in this league 
and that is why you need a 
catcher with a strong arm to 
keep the from taking that extra 
base," Rhodes said. 

In 1979, the Pacers' record 
was 50-18; in 1978 it was 
52-13. If the Pacers win 50 
games this year, they will 
break a record as the only 
team in division IV to win 50 or 
more games for three 
consecutive years. Last year, 
they finished third, but have 
been ranked in the Florida 
Junior College Athletic Asso- 
ciation top 10 for the past 
three seasons. 

The team is seeking an 
equipment manager. Anyone 
interested should contact 
Coach Rhodes. 

The PBJC cheerleading 
squad was selected Thursday. 
"I appreciate the number of 
girls who tried out for the 
team. The decision was a 
difficult one," cheerleading 
sponsor Peggy Kunsman said.

Florida's football teams prove to be powerhouses 

By Jim Hayward 
Chief Copy/News Editor 

While Florida's professional 
football teams battle with 
inconsistency the state's 
major college teams are 
surpassing all expectations. 
Florida State. Florida, and 
Miami boast a combine 8-0 
record (through Sept. 27) with 
i he Seminoles and Hurricanes 
placing in the UPI top 20. 

Despite FSU's 11-1 record 
and Orange Bowl berth last 
season. Florida's big three 
combined for a lb- 17-1 record. 
Flie Florida Gators were the 
main cause of this, reaching 
new depths of inediocucy with 
an 0- 10- J year. All that has 
changed as the Gators, believe 
n or not. are 2-0 and Miami is 
1-0 with the country's best 
rushing defense. 

lit "ail likelihood. the 
combined record is no longer 
perfect in the loss column 
since the Seminoles met the 
Hurricanes in Miami Satur- 
day. Florida also faced a tough 
test with Southeastern Con- 
ference foe Mississippi State 
at Florida Field. 

Honda Mate (ninth, in last 
week's poll) unlike their two 
counterparts, is expected to 
have an outstanding year. 
Coach Bobby Bowden has a 
solid nucleus of last year's 
sixth ranked team which fell to 
Oklahoma 24-7 in the Orange 
Bowl returning. The Semin- 
oles routed LSU 16-0. 
Louisville 52-0. and East 
Carolina 63-0 before facing 
Miami Saturday. Tough op- 
ponents including Nebraska 
from the Big-8. and independ- 
ent Pittsburgh face them in 
upcoming weeks. 

Rick Stcckstill has stepped 
in and taken over as 
quarterback, throwing for 300 
yards and four touchdowns in 
"the first three games. 
Converted wide receiver Sam 
Piatt has done an excellent job 
at tailback and sophomore 
Dennis MeKinnon is making 
the big catches at split 
end.Tailback Holmes John- 
son, back after a one year 

games. Linebacker Keith 
Baker, and defensive, back 
Butler, are both from Delray 
Beach's Atlantic High School 
and pi ay important roles this 
year for the Seminoles. 

At Miami, coach Howard 
Sehnellenberger's rebuilding 
program appears to be 
complete as the Hurricanes 
running game now comple- 
ments the passing game to 

701 pounds of power on the 
defensive line, one that stops 
opposing ball carriers cold. 
Kicker Danny Miller is one of 
the best in college football. 

The offense is led by 
Quarterback Jim Kelly and a 
talented group of runners and 
receivers. The backfield fea- 
tures high school Ail-Amer- 
ican Keith Griffin (yes, those 
Griffins), halfback Chris 

hiatus, is providing all around 
work along with senior 
receiver Kurt Unglaub. 

The key to Bowden's bunch 
however is a rock hard 
defense which ranks first in 
the nation. Ail-American Ron 
Simmons, often confused with 
the incredible hulk, heads a 
veteran defense that has 
allowed only one touchdown 
and 17 first downs in three 

form a unified whole. The 
Canes defeated Louisville 
24-10, Florida A&M 49-0, and 
top 20 ranked Houston 14-7 in 
their first three games. 

The defense, rivaled only by 
FSU, is strong and mean. 
Linebackers Scott Nicolas, 
Mozell Axson, Danny Brown 
and Greg Brown anchor the 
unit. Jim Burt, Charles Cook 
and Tim Flanagan combine for 

Hobbs and Smokey Roan. The 
running game is considered by 
many, along with the 
defensive front, the key to the 
Canes' sudden rise. 

A tough and rocky road will 
follow the Florida State game 
with such toughies as Notre 
Dame (at South Bend this 
year, not Japan), and Penn 
State (a Hurricane upset 
victim last year) before the 

year is through. 

If the sudden U.M. 
turnaround is surprising, what 
has happened to the Florida 
Gators, last year's "Bottom 
Ten" champions is surely 
magical. Coach Charley Pell 
won his first game as Gator 
coach more than a year after 
taking the job in Florida's 
41-13 thrashing of California. 

The magic didn't stop there 
however, as Georgia Tech 
became the second reason for 
mass celebration in Gainsville, 
bowing 45-12. Don't look foi' a 
complete turnaround, but a 
.500 season is not out of the 
question for this vastly 
improved team. 

Chris Collingsworth, and 
Spencer Jackson, of Boca 
Raton, provide first-year 
quarterback Bob Hewko with 
excellent targets. Hewko 
replaced walk-on Larry Ocha'h. 
the former janitor, and has 
passed for nearly 300 yards in 
two games. A well balanced 
running game features con- 
verted tight end James Jones 
and 5-8 Doug Kellom. 

Massive Dock Luekie from 
Fort Pierce, the giant nose 
guard, leads the defense. Tim 
Groves is an All-America 
candidate and David Little is 
an unhearlded linebacker. 

All the hoopla surrounding 
the great improvement of the 
state's top three schools may 
be a bit premature. The talent, 
however, is there. Miami is 
one to two years away from 
national prominence and the 
Gators will reach the top ten in 
no time with a little more 
experience and depth. Big 
time college football has 
arrived in the state of Florida 
and not a moment too soon.

The Voice of Palm Beach Junior College 

-Florida's first public community college. 

Monday, October 13, 1980 

BY Michele Kurteff 

Pulling a surprise move, Student Government 
Association (SGA) President Richard Kocher- 
sperger resigned from his post on Monday, Oct. 
6 after serving just three months in office. 

In a letter to Executive Board members Ed 
Rigolo, Todd Schuppcr and Jennifer 
Hendrickson, Kochersperger cited personal 
problems as the reason for his departure. 

As stated in the SGA constitution, when such 
a situation arises the vice president 
automatically becomes chief executive. 
Shocked at his sudden promotion, Rigolo 
officially took over the position Tuesday. 

"Fortunately Rick and I worked closely 
together and I will be able to pick up where he 
left off. It will take some work, but I'll be able to 
do it. There won't be too much of a change," 
Rigolo said. 

The VP slot made void by Rigolo's promotion 
was tilled by senator Bruce McDowell, who was 
sworn in at Tuesdays meeting. "Bruce was 
unanimously accepted by the senate and is a 
well-liked leader," Rigolo said. 

Before turning over the gavel to McDowell, 
Rigolo will preside at senate meetings for 
another two weeks. "This will serve as a 
breaking-in period for Bruce and will allow him 
to get the feel on how to run a meeting," Rigolo 

McDowell is confident that he can handle the 
job since he has been active in the senate since 
the beginning of the year. He hopes to involve 
the other PBJC campuses - North, South and 
Glades in all college activities. ' 'I took the job 
because I knew we had a good hard working 
group of people. Because of the teamwork we 
have displayed so far this year, I know we wilj 
have a very productive year," said McDowell.

Republican Senate candidate Lou Frey 

Cycle and auto 

By Kim Davis 
Staff Writer 

If voters won't go to the politicians, then, 
bring the politicians to the voters. That's exactly 
what happened for 17 classes of social science 
students during Palm Beach Junior College's 
"Meet Your Candidates Day," Wednesday, 
Oct. 1. 

On campus were 37 candidates running for 
county, state, and national offices who met with 
their opponents in various social science classes 
to present their views of the issues concerning 
voters in each of their selected offices. 

The day was highlighted by the appearance of 
U.S. Republican Senate candidate Lou Frey, who 
lost to' Paula Hawkins in Tuesday's primary. 
Frey appeared with Arlene Hollen, county GOP 
chairman; Ann Cassady, county state 
committeewoman, and William Cudahy, Frey's 
county chairman. 

"It was an excellent turnout by the 
candidates," Dr. Samuel Bottosto, chairman of 
the Social Science Department said. "They 
responded in a very overwhelming fashion to 
our request to come here and help our students 
learn more about the political process. " 

Bottosto felt that by seeing the candidates "in 
the flesh," students were better able to 
understand the issues firsthand. In other words, 
the students were experiencing "participatory 

democracy. ' ' 

Edwin Pugh, Political Union faculty advisor, 
said that the "Meet Your Candidates Day" gave 
people an added push to get involved in politics. 
Pugh cited the voter registration turnout as an 
example of the enthusiasm displayed by PBJC 

The purpose, Bottosto said, was to have 
active participation by the students. He felt that 
the students were motivated and determined to 
get involved so much so that they made sure 
they registered to vote. Bottosto also said that 
he has the "highest of praise for Pugh's large 
contribution in organizing "Meet Your 
Candidates Day." 

"Meet Your Candidates Day" is not a new 
event at PBJC. According to Bottosto, this is the 
fifth consecutive year of bringing the candidates 
to the students. 

Pugh is in the process of organizing debates 
between U.S. Senate candidates Paula Hawkins 
and William Gunter, and Dan Mica and Al 
Coogler, who are running for the U.S. House in 
District 11. 

Notable candidates that visited PBJC 
included Dan Mica, U.S. House, Dist. 11; 
Eleanor Weinstock, State House Dist. 79; Peggy 
Evatt, County Commission Dist. 1; Dennis 
Koehler, County Commission Dist. 3, and David 
Bludworth, State Attorney.

I am not a sex fiend! 

Dear Editor: 

In the September 29 
edition of the paper, there was 
a story written by a member of 
the staff, Angee Morris, called 
"The Legend's Brush With 

In the story, Miss Morris 
took it upon herself to make 
me appear sex obsessed, 
spending my time cruising 
the interstate looking for 
female hitchhikers. 

I am not that kind of person! 

A story that was not run in 
the Sept 29 issue of the 
Beachcomber called "Motorist 
Beware of Hitchhiker ' ' , was 
written by me and dwelled 
on the dangers of picking up 

hitchhikers In the story I 
related how I picked up a 
female hitchhiker on 1-95 and 
at gun point she instructed me 
to drive her to Ft. Pierce. 

This doesn't sound like a 
sex craved individual to me. If 
Miss Morris had inquired, she 
would know how scared I was 
at the time. 

I hope that any person that 
read Miss Morris's story did 
not take it seriously. I am not 
the kind of person she 
depicted in her satirical story. 

In the future, I would advise 
Miss Morris to be more careful 
what she writes. 

Sincerely yours

Prisoner seeks pen pal 

Dear Editor: . . 

I am writing because I'm confined in a penal institution. I wish 
to establish contact with concerned people. I would deeply 
appreciate it if you were to publish this small request in your 
campus newspaper: 

Twenty-five year-old male confined in a penal institution 
would like to receive correspondence from concerned 
individuals to exchange views. 

Mr. Donald Turner 


Box 45699 

Lucasville, Ohio 


President Jimmy Carter's 
political future, hence, the 
coming election, may be 
decided by the release or 
non -release of the U.S. 
hostages in Teheran - and no 
one knows that better than 

Election day is November 4, 
the hostages' one-year anni- 
versary, and that is likely to be 
the most dominant fact in a 
voter's mind as he or she 
enters the voting booth. Carter 
knows it, Reagan knows it, the 
public knows it. 

So don't be surprised if you 
see Carter make some very 
"valid" attempts to rescue the 
hostages this month, or if you 
see Reagan jump on every 
wasted Carter opportunity to 
say so. 

Already Reagan is specu- 
lating as to an "October 
surprise' ' - the release of some 
or all of the 52 hostages to help 
Carter toward re-election, for 
some recent reports say that 
some Iranian officials would 
prefer a President Carter to a 
President Reagan. But as 
Ronnie, the good old (ahem) 
American boy says, "if that 
will help bring the hostages 
home, fine." 

Actually, one could wonder 
whether Reagan really does 
want those hostages released 
before the election, or if Carter 
really wants them released for 
their own good or for his 
political again. 

Joel McCleary, Carter's 
New York field coordinator, 

has said of the hostage 
situation, "Who can guess 
how it will be treated out here? 
It's like playing with a 
chemistry set and no labels are 
on the chemicals. We're 
pouring them together here, 
and we don't know what the 
mix will produce. Also, it's not 
a stable electorate out there." 
Fine, Joel, but don't kid 
yourself. Even an unstable 
electorate, or at least part of it, 
knows that a positive break in 
the hostage situation will help 
Carter immensely, and a 
"do-nothing" attitude by 

Carter will help Reagan in the 
same way. 

What we are dealing with is 
two politicians playing politics 
with people's lives- Reagan to 
a lesser extent, of course, but 
one wonders if the situation 
would be much different if 
Reagan were the incumbent. 

This month will be the most 
likely time for the hostages* 
release, since that may insure 
Carter's re-election. And they 
only had to wait a year. Lucky 
for them that they weren't 
taken hostage right after 
Carter was elected. 



Foghat sloppy but solid 

Chicago-based Foghat, a veteran rhythm and 
blues band, has undergone a loss of popularity 
in the past two years. Witness the fact that they 
went from the Hollywood Sportatorium (a 
17,000-seater) in '78 to the West Palm Beach 
Auditorium in '80. 

But they haven't lost their energy on stage. 
Foghat presented the West Palm audience with 
a short and slightly sloppy show, but performed 
with enough intensity to please the audience. 

"Stone Blue", from the album of the same 
name, opened the Foghat set, showcasing slide 
guitar ace Rod Price. The veteran guitarist went 
higher and higer on the guitar neck at the end, 
then played the lead-in to "Drivin' Wheel", 
from the ill-advised "Night Shift" LP. 

But "Drivin' Wheel" is the album's best 
tune, and was a hit in concert despite drummer 
Roger Earl's problems. Earl is a fine drummer, 
but had a case of fumble-itis on this evening, 
losing his sticks at least three times throughout 
the show. Try some stick-um, Roger. 

"My Babe" was next, the first of three songs 
from "Fool For the City", Foghat's best album. 
The layered vocals worked well, disguising lead 
vocalist-guitarist Dave Peverett's hoarseness. 

After performing tunes from their new album 
"Tight Shoes," Peverett said "We've got a 
request for something old" and introduced 
"Eight Days On the Road". Again Peverett was 
having voice trouble, but his guitar was just 
warming up. 

"Fool For the City" got the crowd going 
enough to allow Peverett a keyboard-vocal suite 
of "Three Time Lucky" from Foghat's "Boogie 
Motel" album, the '79 LP which started their 
popularity downfall. 

Drummer Roger Earl had his one moment of 
glory in beating out the intra to "Home in My 
Hand". Bassist Criag MacGregor pulled out 
some dance steps and was quite entertaining - 
in fact, MacGregor was the understated star of 
the show. 

"I Just Want to Make Love to You" was the 
best song of the set. Price and Peverett 
exchanged leads throughout while MacGregor | 
stomped around the stage. 

The show ended with "Slow Ride", Foghat's* 
signature tune. Peverett and Price had a guitar [ 
battle to the finish before the four group H 
members came to the edge of the stage and took ' 
a bow. 

Opening act Eddie Money didn't quite cut it.„ 
His disco-dance steps and tough guy posing got ^ 
old after a while, and the only highlights of his' 
set were Jimmy Lyon's fine guitar and the' 
saxophone duel between Money and the lead 
saxophonist on "Wanna Be a Rock and Roll 
Star". Even then, Money hogged the spotlight 
by overplaying his leads . t 

It wasn't a concert to remember forever, but h 
was entertaining for most of the audience 
Eddie Money was quite popular with the' 
teeny-boppers (of course), and Foghat played i l 
solid" show on what may be a "last hurrah' ' tour *

Carter will fade like a rose 

Dear Editor: 

With the presidential election nearing, the 
American people will soon be asked to choose 
between three candidates' Jimmy Carter, Ronald 
Reagan, and John Anderson. 

It seems some of the public is dissatisfied 
with these choices and may turn their backs on 
the election altogether. 

I see the election clearly boiling down to a 
two-man race with the third candidate taking 
votes from the second. 

The two candidates to which I am referring 
are Ronald Reagan and John Anderson. Jimmy 
Carter can only hurt Anderson's chances of 
gaining enough electors. 

The American people saw Reagan and 

Anderson on a nationally televised debate a few 
weeks ago and they were very opposed on major 

That debate was the first of the season and 
the absent party should have attended. 
Evidently, Jimmy Carter had better things to do 
and did not bother to show up. It's a shame 
Carter did not attend- 1 guess he's still hiding in 
the rose garden ducking the issues. 

The opportunities were there for the 
president to come out into the real world and 

With the election nearing, Carter will wither 
away along with the roses.

Smile, your face won't break 

To the Editor: 

I buy lunch every day in the 
cafeteria and I have come to 
the point of dreading entering 
that area. The food is pretty 
good and the prices are 
reasonable. However, the 
manner in which it is served is 

another matter, 

I can understand that 
everyone can have a bad day 
once in awhile, but the food 
service personnel seem to 
have a bad day every day. I 
have tried a smile and a kind 
word and I have seen other 

customers do the same only to 
be met with a snarl. I have 
never seen any of them smile. 
Don't they understand that a 
little kindness goes a long 
way? Or do they really hate 
their jobs that much?

Dear Editors- 

After viewing recent articles in the school 
newspaper, I'm appalled to see that the student body 
and the SGA has apparently forgotten past incidents 
concerning Dr. Eissey, the attendance policy, and the 
tuition rates. 

In the article of Sept. 8th issue of the Beachcomber: 
"PBJC tuition higher than Community college 
average", by Jim Hayward has rconfirmed my belief 
that in order for the students of PBJC to protect their 
rights, a lawyer should be consulted by the SGA 

Also in later articles, where Dr. Eissey met with 
newly elected officials of the SGA and stated he was 

once a student there himself and knew what the 
students were going thru, leads me to believe that he 
is using that knowledge to drain the students' 

How can anyone with knowledge and empathic 
ability, that Dr. Eissey claims to have, raise tuition 
levels and ignore appeal after appeal of leniency of 
attendance policy? 

During last year, a petition drive by the SGA was 
made and over a thousand signatures were presented 
to the District Board of Trustees, only to be 
whitewashed by a committee set up and contolled by 
Dr. Eissey . This drive was promoted and centered 
on the attendance policy, because we couldn't believe 
that the Board of Trustees honestly knew how we, the 

students, felt about our tuition hikes and attendance 

Well, believe me, we found out in a hurry that the 
cancerous opportunist ideas of Dr. Eissey had affected 
more of the faculty and Board members than we had 

Concerning my suggestion of consulting a lawyer, it 
is my hope and surely of those who "have been 
there", that it will be taken in all seriousness. 
Because we are this country's leaders of the 21st 

Sincerely Yours:

The death of John Bon ham - The end of Led Zeppelin? 

By Bill Meredith 

The ends and beginnings of 
the last two decades have had 
disasterous effects on some of 
rock and roll's greatest 
personalities and bands. 1969 
claimed the life of Rolling 
Stones guitarist Brian Jones. 
1970 Jirni Hendrix, and 1971 
Doors leader Jim Morrison 
and Allman Brothers guitarist 

Sadly, the late *70's and 
early '80' s are well on their 
way to keeping pace. 1978 
marks the death of former 
Who drummer Keith Moon, 
1980 Marshall Tucker bassist 
Tommy Caldwell, former Eric 
Clapton bassist Carl Radle, 
and most recently, Led 
Zeppelin drummer John 
"Bonzo" Bonham. 

A tireless drummer with an 
incredibly distinct style, Bon- 
ham began playing drums at 
age seven and joined his first 
band, Terry Webb and the 
Spiders, in 1964. In '68 
Bonham and lead singer 
Robert Plant, his bandmate 
from the Band of Joy, joined 
then-Yardbirds guitarist Jim- 
my Page and studio bassist- 
keyboardist John Paul Jones 
to form Led Zeppelin. 

The band toured Scandin- 
avia in August '68 as the New 
Yardbirds to fulfill prior 
contractural commitments, 
and recorded their first album 
in a scant 30 hours in London's 
Olympic studios in October, 
emerging from the studio as 
Led Zeppelin. Ironically, it 
was the late Keith Moon who 
suggested the name, saying 

*Hey Racers 

the new group would "sink 
like a lead balloon". 

As Led Zeppelin grew as a 
group, so did John Bonham as 
an artist. "Led Zeppelin II" 
produced Bonham's fust and 
only drum solo on "Moby 
Dick", and "III" some fine 
blues drumming (a category 
where he was unmatched) and 
acoustic accompaniment. 

All of which lead to "IV", 
Led Zeppelin's most 

recognized LP, released in 
1971. While the album 
produced such classics as 
"Black Dog" and "Stairway to 
Heaven", Bonham's best 
work was found on "Rock and 
Roll", where he does a 
breathtaking ten-second flurry 
at the conclusion, and "When 
the Levee Breaks". The latter 
may be the most haunting 
tune for Zeppelin fans to heat- 
in the future, for the drum 
introduction is vintage Bon- 

'72 and '73 marked 
excessive touring and 
"Houses of the Holy", 
Zeppelin's fifth album, and 
the group launched their own 
record label, Swan Song, in 
1974. Wliile everything seem- 
ed to be going well, trouble 
was building around the 
corner, and 1975 would start a 
string of minor and major 
disasters that, with Bonham's 
death, may have ended the 
reign of Led Zeppelin. 

"Physical Graffiti" was 
released in February '75, but 
Jimmy Page broke a finger in 
a train door and was forced to 
play with only three fingers on 
that hand for the entire tour. 

In August, Robert Plant and 
his wife Maureen were nearly 
killed in an auto accident in 
Greece, Plant emerging with 
multiple fractures of the elbow 
and ankle. 

Still, there was a schedule to 
be met. Rehearsals for 
"Presence" found Plant 
singing in his wheelchair and 
in a cast during recording of 
the album, Zeppelin's seven- 

'76 found Plant on his feet 
and Led Zeppelin touring 
again, but guitartist Page was 
presented with a lawsuit from 
Kenneth Anger, who claimed 
he was cheated by Page on the 
recording of a soundtrack for 
the film "Lucifer Rising." 

The Led Zeppelin movie, 
"The Song Remains the 
Same", premiered in New 
York in October '76. Although 
not a great film, it does 
showcase some of the band's 
strongest talents, mainly those 
of Page and Bonham. The 
guitarist proves his lightning 
quickness throughout, and 
"Bonzo" does a patented 
"Moby Dick" drum solo and' 
has the best (along with John 
Paul Jones) of the four group 
members' "fantasy sequen- 


'76 also marks the death of 
Zeppelin engineer Keith 

1977 found Bonham receiv- 
ing a suspended sentence and 
probation for roughing up 
some members of concert 
promoter Bill Graham's staff. 
Bonham was also involved in 
an auto accident that year in 
which he broke three ribs. But 
the worst blow was still to be 
dealt- Robert Plant's five-year 
old son Karac died in July of a 
sudden viral infection. Plant, 
understandably shaken, re- 
tired to his home and family in 
England, cutting short the '77 

When the band met for 
rehearsals for "In Through 
the Out Door" in '78, it was 
the first time they had played 
together in nearly a year. 
Taking almost a full year to 
complete, the album would 
contain what may be the last 
percussion riffs ever heard 
from John Bonham. Although 
he strangely failed to write any 
material for the LP, "Bonzo" 
was great on "South Bound 
Suarez" and particularly 
"Fool in the Rain." 

Which brings us to Sept. 25, 
1980, when John Bonham was 
found dead at the Old Mill 
House, home of Jimmy Page, 
30 miles west of London. 
Bonham reportedly choked to 
death after vomiting in his 
sleep, probably the result of 
his consumption of over a 
quart of vodka in a 12-hour 

Rolling Stone Keith Rich- 
ards once said of the late Keith 
Moon, "He was strong as an 

ox, but he was... you knew, 
he'd send out invitations that 
said 'Do me in'." The same 
could be said of Bonham, 
possibly the only rock star who 
could rival Moon for wildness. 
As former Swan Song Vice 
President Danny Goldberg put 
it- "He was the ultimate rock 
and roll bad guy. He somehow 
felt that he didn't have to 
abide by any social rules at all. 
The band used to call him The 
Beast'. He was the ultimate 
room destroyer." 

Robert Plant (who may now 
quit the group to go solo) and 
many Zeppelin fans have other 
ideas as to Bonham's death- a 
curse, black magic. Jimmy 
Page has reportedly dabbled 
in the occult before, and while 
it does seem unlikely as a 
cause, how can one blame 
people for believing in the 
"Zeppelin curse" after seeing 
what has happened to the 
group over the past six years? 

John Bonham is survived by 
his wife Pat and two children. 
No official word has been 
given as to whether the 
American tour Led Zeppelin 
scheduled for this year has 
been cancelled or not, but it 
most likely has. 

The world's premier rock 
dinosaur is now standing on 
three legs, and it may be time 
to call it quits. As Goldberg 
says, "...he (Bonham) had 
this incredible talent. I don't 
think there's ever been 
anybody like him. As brilliant 
as Jimmy Page is. Led 
Zeppelin will never be the 
same without John- there's no 
one else in the world who can 
play drums like that."

In the last issue of the 
BEACHCOMBER we left our 
hero (Bill Meeks) filling out a 
report on a hitchhiker at a 
service plaza in Ft. Pierce. To 
further follow the adventures 
of The Legend, we take you to 
New York's most exclusive 
disco, Studio 54, where he is 
standing outside trying to gain 

"I'm sorry, Mac, but you'll 
just have to wait in line like the 
rest of the people," the 
bouncer tells him. "Oh, Miss 
Minelli, go right in." 

"But you don't under- 
stand," pleads The Legend. 
"I'm famous. Look here, my 
name was in the last issue of 

Meeks sulkily lumbers back 
to his place in line. Several 
more celebrities are admitted 
to the disco. Time passes. 

"Suzanne Sommers!" 
shouts Meeks. "Suzanne, tell 
ihi' "-mi who I am." 

"l. i know you?" asks a 
startled Suzanne. "I don't 
think we've been introduced." 

Ms. Sommers brushes Bill 
aside as she goes through the 
doors of the disco. The music 
playing inside is audible to 
those waiting in line. A forlorn 
Bill Meeks begins to create a 
nuisance of himself by dancing 
with an imaginary partner. 

"Look, Mac, behave your- 
self or I'll have to ask you to 
leave!" shouts the bouncer at 
our hero. 

Dejected, The Legend 
returns to his place in line 
while mumbling, "but I'm 

Carrying a spoon, Hamilton 
Jordan" enters Studio 54. He is 
followed by Farrah Fawcett 
and Ryan O'Neal. Ms. Fawcett 
slips and falls on her famous 

behind. The Legend sees his 
chance , He helps Farrah up 
from the ground. Their eyes 
meet. "Thank you," she says 
as she too passes through the 
magic doors. 

That was the final blow, the 
final insult — not being 
recognized by a washed up, 
no-talent actress! In a last 
ditch, abortive attempt at 
gaining admittance to the 
"beautiful" life, he approach- 
es the doorman once again: 

"I've had it!" he exclaims. 
"Either you let me in or I'm 

So he leaves. Alone, he 
walks the streets of New York.

ahead for our hero? Will he 
fall prey to muggers, killers,

Pigs are people too 

By Andrea Ellis 
Staff Writer 

The pig is a victim of much 
generalizing and stereotyping. Most 
people, when asked to describe a pig, 
would probably say that it is a fat, ugly, 
gross, greedy creature, who is only 
good for a few things: footballs, gloves, 
and of course, bacon. 

But what prompted all these irate 
feelings towards an animal that most 
people know little or nothing about? 
Well, the reason is obvious. It is most 
likely because farmers have raised 
them to be such creatures. From the 
moment a pig is born, it knows nothing 
but eating slop and sleeping in a pen 
filled with mud and other farm animals' 
manure. The poor beasts never even 
get a chance to leave their pens until 
they are taken to market for slaughter. 

One never stops to think that 
perhaps the unfortunate animal detests 
living in such an environment. We are 
guilty of having used sayings like, 
"Wow, those people must be real pigs. 
Look at their house." And "What a pig 
pen this place is!" But the pigs don't 

make their pens the way it is, the 
people who own them do. The truth is, 
pigs don't like living like they do 
anymore than immaculate people like a 
filthy house. They are actually very 
clean animals when given the chance. 

A pig who has lived outside a pigpen 
from birth has no desire whatsoever to 
roll around in the mud. 

And the pigs who have lived in a 
pigpen all their lives do it only to rid 
themselves of the numerous pests that 
dwell on farms. 

They are also intelligent animals, but 
unfortunately not smart enough to 
know that they are going to end up as a 
center-cut roast, fine ladies' gloves or 
scoring a touchdown for the Miami 
Dolphins. If a pig did know this it would 
probably take its own life as a piglet 
rather than fulfill a wretched life in a 
disgusting pen. with nothing but slop 
and garbage to eat. 

I am convinced that given half a 
chance, a clean pen, and regular meals, 
the pig could prove itself to the millions 
of people who think of them as mere

By Steve Beverly 
Staff Writer 

Every ten years, Palm Beach Junior 
College participates in a self study 
program, which is reviewed by the 
Southern Association of Colleges and 
Schools. The purpose of the self study 
is - for'j PBJC to maintain its 

The report contains studies of the 
following sections: educational program, 
financial resources, faculty, library, 
student development services, physical 
resources, special activities, graduate 
program, research summary, and 
recommendations and planning for the 
future. ' Each of the sections has a 
committee comprised of faculty, staff, 
and students who make the report for 
each particular section. 

The self study report is unique 
because it does hot compare PFJC fo 
other colleges. The study compares 
PBJC to 1 statidards it has set for itself. 

After the self study reports are 
completed, they are sent to the 
Southern Association of Colleges and 
Schools. In the spring, peers from other 
colleges will come to the PBJC campus 
and record their opinions of the school. 
If the committee deems it necessary, it 
can order probationary suspension of 
college accreditation. 

The Southern Association of Colleges 
and Schools covers the southeastern 
United States. There are three other 
associations that cover the rest of the 

The program is not mandatory. 
There are many small colleges and 
private universities that do not 
participate because they realize their 
standards do not meet the expectations 
of the association. 

The self study program is very 
important, for without receiving 
accreditation, a degree earned at PBJC 
could very easily be refused by a 
four-year university. 

Registration Information 

Members of two Palm Beach Junior 
College organizations - the Political 
Union and Phi Theta Kappa- registered 
282 new voters last week in a three-day 
Voter Registration Drive. 

Of the 282, 133 registered as 
Democrats, 94 as Republicans, 31 as 

Independents, 22 as having no party,

Intramural Board looking forward to good year 

By Mark Dreps 
Sports Writer 

"Everything you play sports 
for" — is the theme for this 
year's Intramural program 
which is designed not to 
interfere with other student 
activities . 

Intramurals face many 
problems. The major problem 
is obtaining enough money 
from the student activity fund, 
Then, there is the fact that 
more than 90 percent of the 
student body works off 
campus. Another problem is 
the lack of participation. 
Volunteers to officiate and 
keep score of games are 
always needed. 

Not only are intramural 
participants eligible for T-shirt 
awards and trophies , but they 
?re also eligible for the 
Presidential Sports Award. 
The Presidential Sports 
Award is a nationwide award 
given to the most active and 
successful student participa- 
ting in college intramurals. 

The Intramural Board, 
which plans and directs 
intramural sports, consists of 
four well experienced mem- 
bers including students and 

Director of the program is 
Coach Roy Bell. Coach Bell hs 
been a physical education 
instructor since 1958. He 
became a member of the 

Dr. Roy Bell 

Intramural Board in 1965. Bell 
now teaches nine physical 
education classes. He feels 
that intramurals are an 
important asset to a college or 
university and hopes to have 
as much participation as 

Ira Hubschman is the 
student director on the board. 
He is in his second year and is 
a physical education rnajor. 

Besides going to classes and 
working on the board, he also 
teaches P.E. two days of the 

Ira Hubschman 

week at St. Marks Catholic 
School and coaches girls 
athletic activities there. After 
graduating from PBJC he 
plans to attend Palm Beach 
Atlantic to work towards his 
master's degree. 

Hubschman is pleased with 
this years intramurals but 
would like tq see much more 
participation for the students 
own physical benefit and the 
experience of competing on 
the intramural level. 

The student advisor is Fill 

William Branca 

Branca. His job is making all 
students aware of intramurals 
that are taking place now and 
in the future. Bill is a second 
year student majoring in 

"This years intramurals are 
very well organized. The only 
problem we face in the future 
is not finding students 
interested in the sport and 
willing to supervise the 
program, " said Branca. 

Al Jaquith is the assistant 
student director on the board. 

Al Jaquith 

He is a second year Physical 
Education major and assistant 
basketball coach. When not 
atending class he works in the 
Central Receiving Department 
on campus. 

Robert Bryde is also closely 
associated with the Intramural 
Board. At the present time, he 
is in charge of organizing the 
flag football events. Bryde is a 
second year physical educa- 
tion major and feels that this 
years intramural program is 
going to be very successful. 

Baseball team off to slow start 

By Brace McDowell 
Staff Writer 

The Pacer baseball team is off to a slow start. Coach 
Dusty Rhodes is carrying a squad of 45 players and a 1-5 

Rhodes has not made cuts as he thought he would, 
because he needs more time to evaluate the players, 
especially the pitchers. "I want to give everyone a fair shot 
to make the team," Rhodes said. 

When the Pacers play opposing teams who are two-year 
colleges, Rhodes uses his freshmen pitchers. When they 
play four-year colleges, he uses his sophomore pitchers. 
The Pacers squad is loaded with talented players, but the 
question which needs to be answered is can the boys play 

a tough competitive college league? Within the next week, 
Rhodes hopes to trim the squad down to 27 players. 

Three PBJC baseball players were chosen to be on the 
United States Baseball Federation Team. The team played 
in Venezuela against all-star teams from South America. 
Representing PBJC were: Rich Rice, pitcher, Tim Owens, 
catcher, and Robbie Thompson, infielder. 

Dusty Rhodes has Eric Keller assisting him in coaching 
this year. Keller is an asset to the Pacer coaching staff and 
feels that it is just a matter of time before the Pacers start 
playing as a team. 

Friday at noon, the Pacers will travel to Miami to play the 
University of Miami. Miami is rated among one of the top 
five college baseball teams in the country. The Pacers next 
home game will be played on Nov. 1.

erican Leaau 

no in 1980 series! 

By Ross Sanders 
Sports Editor 

Baseball has just finished 
one of the most exciting years 
it has ever had. Three of the 
four division races went down 
to the last week of the season. 

The Houston Astros and the 
Los Angeles Dodgers had to 
compete in a playoff game to 
determine the winner of the 
National League West. The 
Astros won die tie-breaker by 
a score of 7- 1 . 

The Philadelphia Phillies 
battled the Montreal Expos in 
a season ending three : game 
series at Montreal to deter- 
mine the winner of the N.L. 
East. The Phillies won two of 
the three games to clinch their 
fourth divisional title in the 
last five years. 

The New York Yankees 
fought off a strong surge by 
the Baltimore Orioles to 
capture the A.L. East. The 
Yanks had to record 103 wins 

Looking lor some 

Swinging action?'- 

PBJC's Mens Golf Coach 
Jim Simon has announced that 
he is looking for players who 
would like to play on this years 
golf team. 

If interested, contact coach 
Simon at the Atlantis Country 
Club or Peggy Kunzman in the 
athletic office in the gymna- 

to enter this years American 
League Championship series. 

The Kansas City Royals had 
it easy all tlie way. By being in 
baseballs weakest division, 
the Royals coasted from the 
month of April on. 

The following is an outlook 
of each teams chances in 
entering and winning this 
years World Series: 

Houston Astros: The Un- 
derdog to win it all. There are 
two things a team must have 
to win a championship: power 
and pitching. The Astros 
definitely have the pitching, 
but home run power is 
no-where to be seen. Nolan 
Ryan and Joe Niekro lead the 
pitching attack. The loss of 
J.R.Richard will hurt the 
Astros in this short series. 

Joe Morgan and Art Howe 
are the only two players who 
can supply power. The rest of 
the Astros offensive attack 
consists of singles and stolen

Cedeno. Jose Cruz, and Joe 

Philadelphia Phillies: The 
only hope for the Natioinal 
League to win this years 
World Series are the Phillies. 
The Phils have a potent 
offense lead bv home run king 
Mike Schmidt. The Phils are 
also supported by Bake 
McBride, Pete Rose, and 
Manny Trillo. Poor seasons by 
Greg Luzinski, Larry Bowa, 
and Bob Boone may be 
forgotten if the . threesome 
turns it around in the playoffs. 

The Phillies question mark 
is pitching. They do have 
Steve Carlton and Tug 
McGraw, but beyond the two 
southpaws, there are many 
inconsistent pitchers. Players 
to watch: Lonnie Smith, Marty 
Bystrom, and Manny Trillo. 

New York Yankees: After 
being beset by season long 
injuries to two of their starting 

players (Ruppert Jones and" 
Craig Nettles), the Yankees

records in baseball history.

Jackson leads the offense, 
while Rich Gossage heads the

watch: Rick Cerone' Willie

Kansas City Royals: The 
Royals have three things 
which may be enough for them 
to capture this year's pennant. 
The Royals have Willie 
Wilson, speed, and of course, 
George Brett. Brett failed in 
his quest to reach the golden 
.400, but he is the most potent 
force the Royals have in their 
lineup. Wilson finished up the 

year at .325 and stole close to 
75 bases. 

Players like Amos Otis and 
Frank White will drive 
opposing teams wild with their 
ever-present taking the extra 
base. The Royals have no 
pitching whatsoever. Larry 
Gura is the only bona fide 
pitcher (and he always beats 
the Yankees) Dan Quisenberry 
is the most overrated relief 
pitcher in baseball. Quisen- 
berry did have 33 saves, but 
he had a mediocre 12-8 record 
and a poor (for relievers) 3.06

Karate instructor Bill Shearouse 

By Mark Dreps 
Staff Writer 

A one semester course of intramural karate, Moo Duk Qwen, ' 
began Tuesday Oct. 7 under the instruction of Bill Shearouse. I 

Shearouse is in his second year at PBJC after transferring from ; 
the University of Florida, where he was a member of the karate ■ 
team. Involved in karate for the past 10 years, he will be; 
instructing his second course. ; 

Approximately 20 meetings will be held in the gym from 2 p. m. 
to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and from 2:30 p.m. to 3p.m. on 
Thursdays. At present, 25 students are enrolled. Opportunities - 
for more students to enroll are available until Oct. 16. A karate, 
uniform is not required. 

The basic fundamentals the course will stress are karate 
philosophy, discipline, and fitness. The course also stresses the 
fact that karate depends more upon intelligence than force . [ 

She arii ouse feels that television broadcasts of kung fu have had a I 
major impact on the interest in karate and the recent showing of s 
Shogun will also have an influence in the martial arts. 1 

Because of the enthusiasm displayed at the first meeting, r 
Shearouse feels intramural karate will be a big success this year, i

RUSSIA. . . 
... is a hoax. 

The few churches that are 
allowed have secret police 
assigned to each known 
service. The name of every 
participant is well known and 
recorded for future use in 
"scape goating." 

The Bible is still the most 
hated book. Many of those 
who believe in God's Word 
must carry only a page or two 
with them for fear of losing the 
whole precious Book. Some- 
times they even copy out afew 
Scriptures just to have 

something to cling to in times 
of persecution. 

Here is a testimony from 
Veniamin Valtulko, now ser- 
ving 5 years in prison for being 
a Christian: "Immediately 
when I became a believer I 
was insulted, scorned, humil- 
iated, fined, deprived of my 
wages and warned to stop 
carrying our worship meet- 
ings. After all their attempts 
to turn me from my faith 
failed, the authorities fabri- 
cated a criminal case, 
sentenced me to 5 years 
among the worst criminals. At 
the trial I was deprived of my 

parental rights over my two 
eldest children for bringing 
them up in my own 
convictions. While here I am 
not allowed to receive letters 
from my relatives because the 
name of God is mentioned, 
although written with a child's 
hand. We Christians remain 
for the government more 
dangerous, more terrible than 
murderers, thieves, embez- 
lers, rapists and all other 
criminals who have committed 
heinous acts." 


It's NOT Against the Law 
It is not against the law to 
talk about God, study the 
Bible or pray in the classroom. 
Volumes of documentations 
have been collected by several 
Christian Legal Societies in 
the United States. If you have 
a question about the subject, 
write to Mr. Lynn Robert

Both Yale and Harvard Law

God is with us, even when we fall. 
He does not abandon us on our way 
down. Our Lord never gives up on any 

of us! 

Have you also fallen? Do you relate 
to that crippled sparrow, flopping 
helplessly in the dust? Are you 
wounded, hurting and feeling lots and 
lonely? Do you ever think to yourself, 
"How can God put up with someone 
like me? How can He still love me when 
I've failed Him so badly?" 

Often, we can recognize His great 
ove only when we have hit bottom. 
Don't panic. Deliverance will come. 
God answers us by showing His love. 
And when we have learned how weak 
we arc and have learned to trust His

down and gently help us back to the 

The second absolute is: If is my faith 
thai pleases' Him the most! "Without 
taitli it is impossible to please Him" 
(Hebrews 1 1:6). God % »v„ants so much to 

be trusted. That trust He counts as 
righteousness (Romans 4:3). 

What do I do when temptation rolls 
over me like a flood? When my 
inadequacies overwhelm me and I see 
the reality of my weaknesses? Give up? 
Quit? Never! ! I bring to God all I've got 
left - my faith In Him. 1 may not 
understand why He seems to take such 
a long time to intervene, but 1 know He 
will . He will keep His word to me. 

I am convinced Satan wants to rob 
me of only one thing — my faith. .He 
really doesn't want my morals or good 
deeds or my dreams. He wants to 
destroy my faith and make me believe 
God has forsaken this earth. 

A fall is never fatal to those who keep 
their faith intact. In spite of despair and 
pressures thai bog the mind and sap 
the strength. 1 believe God. I believe

Eissey suggests annexation 
As alternative to surcharge 

By Kim Davis 
Staff Writer 

Speaking before the Palm Beach Junior 
College Board of Trustees on Wednesday, Oct. 
15, PBJC President Ed Eissey dropped a 
bombshell, calling for alternatives to Lake 
Worth Utilities'proposed 10 percent surcharge 
including annexation to the city of Lake Worth. 

The annexation was one of three proposals 
brought before the board. 

James Adams, attorney for Palm Beach 
Junior College, said in his report to the board 
that he had not yet filed a lawsuit against Lake 
Worth Utilities because he felt there were a 
few more areas to be researched. 

As instructed by the board, Eissey discussed 
options to the surcharge with Larry Robbins, 
Lake Worth City Manager. 

Annexing PBJC to the city of Lake Worth 
would give the college increased police and 
fire protection and would exempt the college 
from city taxes. 

Tire second alternative is to change PBJC 
over to Florida Power & Light Co. 

The final alternative is to go ahead with the 
plans of a lawsuit against the Lake Worth 
Utilities Authority. 

The surcharge took effect Oct. 1, and the 
college has been temporarily operating under 
it, Eissey said.

Republican Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan will be 
appearing at the PBJC Sunshine Court on Thursday, Oct. 23 
at 5:30 p.m. according to Edwin Pugh, Political Union

tentatively scheduled to appear at PBJC during a Florida 
campaign swing tomorrow. He will be appearing in Orlando 
and Miami and will possibly stop at the college.

Special master 
Sides with faculty 

County Commissioner Dennis Koehler 

Koehler seeks 
Of students 

By JimHayward 
Chief Copy/News Editor 

Seeking the endorsement of the college student, incumbent 
District 3 County Commissioner Dennis Koehler ,D-WPB, spoke to 
Student Government Association Senators at a"political seminar" 

on Thursday, Oct. 16. ,',.„, 

"There is an unprecedented involvement of people of Palm 
Beach County in politics. The County Commission has had 
thousands of people protesting tax raises," Koehler said. 

He will be facing Republican challenger Chuck Potter of 
Lantana in the November general election . 

Koehler sees the old American trend of protest and 
involvement springing back to life, despite the growing publicity 
of voter apathy. . 

Quoting a Wall Street Journal article, Koehler said low voter 
turnout among the youth is a "highly rational response to new 
trends in democracy." Students adopt an opinion that their 
immediate involvement will have no effect on the issues. 

Koehler's political philosophy is based on four basic qualities: 
willingness to listen and communicate with all special interest 
groups; native intelligence refined by education for the purpose of 
grasping the issues; knowledge to strike proper balance between 
competing interests, critical issues and public interest; and 
leadership, patience and persistence with an emphasis on keeping 
an open mind. 

He stresses working with the people and the ability to take 
criticism. "You've got to speak out and take chances in order to 
improve your own ideas, ' ' Koehler said. 

Koehler has great ambitions including positions of 
congressman, and when he makes his big pitch on the national 
level in the 1990s- President. 

Only time will tell. 

After only four weeks of 
hearings, special master Paul 
Thompson reached a decision 
on the contract negotiations 
between the PBJC Adminis- 
tration and theUnited Facultv 
of PBJC. 

"How marvelous" was 
United Faculty negotiator Ann 
Steckler's response to Thomp- 
son's decision to favor the 
faculty's position on the key

management rights clause 
should be deleted from the 
contract and teachers should

recommendation, however, 
and is not binding.

In other news, 32 faculty 
personnel members met at a 
special meeting on Wednes- 
day, Oct. 15 to discuss 
possible alternatives to a 
union. A committee to form 
details for another type of 
organization is currently in the 

"All faculty, guidance 

counselors and librarians are 
part of the bargaining union- 
they are automatically mem- 
bers whether they believe in it 
or not," Donald Cook, PBJC 
director of testing said. 

"A union does play an 
important part in some places, 
but not in education. Having a 
union does not allow for a fair 
representation of the faculty. ' ' 

As in most organizations, 
Cook believes certain indi- 
viduals are dictating to others 
and calling all the shots. "We 
just don't have a fair input. 
Not all of us believe in a 
union," he said.

Libertarian Ed Clark 
Faces uphill struggle 

By Tony Rizzo 
Staff Writer 

Libertarian Presidential nominee Ed Clark 
spoke to Palm Beach Junior College students on 
Wednesday Oct. 16. 

Before approaching the podium, Clark took 
time to talk with several reporters from various 
area radio and television stations. 

When asked what the Libertarian platform in 
general was about, Clark explained, "My party 
recognizes and places a great deal of importance 
on the individual." 

Clark began his address to the students by 
saying that during the Vietnam War, 
government itself caused the nation to become 
divided, and could not possibly pull out of the 
conflict out of fear of losing face with the rest of 
the world. 

Clark made it apparent that one of his major 
concerns is national defense. "We should bring 
all the troops that we have stationed overseas 
home, "he said. 

"It's ridiculous to have all the troops that we 
do stationed in places like Germany, for 
example. We have approximately 250,000 
Americans over there. The German system of 
democracy is perhaps one of the most successful 
and stable in the world. They (the German 
people) should be allowed to set up a stable 
defense of their own . " 

Clark also discussed his proposal for a SO 
percent across the board tax-cut which would 
also allow those in the $7,500 per year or below 
income bracket to pay no federal income tax. 

Clark's policies on the economy were 
reflected in his views on inflation. "Inflation is

Sultan of Oman 
Fears Invasion 

From U.S.A., U.S.S.R. 

'A3 TH£. QC£RT ©Eflfe. HTgLG-MfiTfS f?) 

The Sultan Caboos bin Said 
of Oman does not wish to have 
visitors of any nationality 
milling about his country. He 
is afraid that they will only 
bring trouble. His fears are 
fueled by Oman's precarious 
geographical position in the 
oil-rich Persian Gulf. 

Just South of Saudi-Arabia, 
Iran, and Afghanistan, Oman 
is a nation whose assets at the 
moment look very appealing to 
the Soviet Union and the 
United States. And the Sultan 

does not believe one word of 
the U.S.S.R.'s claim that they 
do not want to gain control of 
the oil-producing states in the 
Middle East. 

While it's oil production is 
relatively minor when com- 
. pared to that of other nations 
- in the Gulf, "it is still enough to 
have made Oman one of the 
wealthiest and more glamor- 
ous nations in the region. 

The Sultan has stressed that 
he is America's friend and he 
has demonstrated this by 

giving his full support to the 
Camp David Accord and the 
policies of Egyptian president 
Anwar Sadat. 

In return for this support the 
Sultan would like to see the 
United States supply Oman 
with the necessary military 
equipment needed to meet any 
threat from the Soviets. 

Approximately one month 
ago CBS News learned that 
the U.S. had been conducting 
secret negotiations with Said 
about the shipments of 

military aid. 

Great Britain has already 
sent over military personnel 
classified as "advisers" to 
Oman. They are there under 
contract and are being paid by 

The bases that have already 
been set up by the British can 
not only accomodate military 
aircraft and equipment but 
troops as well. 

There are those here at 
home who feel that the United 
States should be fully 

prepared to send troops to 
Oman, among them former 
Secretary of State Dr. Henry 
Kissinger. As far as that is 
concerned the Sultan finds it 
to be unacceptable. However, 
if Oman should find itself 
under a massive attack from 
the Soviet Union then troops 
would be welcome. 

We just wonder how long it 
will be before we ourselves 
begin to send advisers and 
finally those between the ages 
of 18 to 21. 

Jeb Bush latest in line of no-shows. . . . 

Political offspring apathetic to PB JC 

Jeb Bush 

The Democrat-Republican 
apathetic presidential candi- 
date's sons race is now tied 

Jeb Bush, son of Republican 
vice-presidential candidate 
George Bush, was scheduled 
to appear at- PBJG on Friday, 
October 10, but failed to show 
in true candidate offspring 

According to Political 
Union faculty advisor Edwin 
Pugh, Bush pulled a no-show 
because of a possible Ronald 
Reagan visit this week. The 
two G.O.P. candidates report- 
edly did not want to 
over-Republicanize our cam- 

Mr. Pugh also said that he 
was not notified of the Bush 
cancellation until 11:30 Friday 
morning, the time and day Jeb 
Bush was scheduled. 

Bush was rescheduled to 
speak on Friday, October 17, 
but again cancelled, obviously 
wanting to tie Chip Carter's 
record for apathy to PBJC. He 
has succeeded, and we 
congratulate him. 

The blame could very well 
go to Jeb Bush's scheduling 
committee. There is reported- 
ly more than one person 
handling the schedule and 
thus causing the cancellations, 
confusion and disappoint- 
ments. Too bad the candidates 
and their families cannot be in 
more than one place at once, 
as their schedules seem to 

If the old saying "Like 
father, like son" has any 
meaning, and it seems to at 
times, then both the Demo- 
cratic and Republican parties 
need a shot in the arm. 

October is a busy month 
during an election year, but 
one should not schedule an 
appontment to break it. 
Perhaps Chip Carter and Jeb 
Bush were needed at their 
respective homes to help dig 
up more mud for their party's 
leaders to sling. 

President Carter and Mr. 
Reagan may both be appear- 
ing at PBJC this week, and 
hopefully they will not decide 
to send their or their running 
mate's sons. Both candidates 
need Florida votes to help 
build a surge in their 
campaigns in these political 
dog days. 

Does Independent candi- 
date John Anderson have any 
children? If he does, when will 
they not show? Please submit 
this needed information as 
soon as possible.

Dear Editor: 

It is 10:30 Monday morning* 
and you don't have a"' class 
until 11 a.m. You are driving 
around the campus parking 
lot, looking for an empty spot 
to park your car. If you are like 
most students in this situation, 
you have been searching five 
minutes for a spot. 

Your classes are in the 
Criminal Justice building, but 
the only open parking spaces 
are near the Humanities 
building. Put on your hiking 
boots and prepare yourself for 
the long walk. Or if it is 
raining, you will make like a 
track star and dash your way 


,to class. 

" PBJC security officers told 
me that on Mondays, 
Wednesdays, and Fridays, 
between the hours of 9 a.m. 
and noon, there is a problem 
of supply and demand on 
parking spaces. This campus 
can accommodate 2,680 park- 
ing space, but 5,374 parking 
decals have been issued as of 
October 1. 

Most of the time, there is 
ample parking for the students 
as you have a mixture of day 
students and evening stu- 
dents. But in the past month, 
there have been numerous 
occasions where there have 

been more cars than empty 
spaces. As a result, the 
students park along the side of 
the road and in undesignated 

The security officers are 
compelled by rules to give 
these students illegal parking 
tickets. Security is aware of 
the parking situation and is 
sympathetic with the students. 
They don't want to give the 
tickets, but they have a job to 
do. They have asked the 
Student Government Associa- 
tion to see what they can do to 
find an answer to the problem 
or an alternative plan. 

Confronting Dr. Eissey with 
this information, he agreed 
that the parking-conditions 
need attention. He informed 
me of a proposed plan t6 

increase the parking capacity. 
The area probably will be the 
southeast section, near the 

Dr. Eissey could not give an 
approximate date when these 
plans would be complete. 
There are parking spaces 
available around campus, but 
you probably won't be able to 
park close to your class and 
you will have to do a little 

He has no remedy for the 
present situation and is open 
to any suggestions you may 

This is our campus and we 
should be able to become 
concerned with problems and 
be willing to put some effort 
forward helping- correct the 
situations. I-am sure if you get 

a parking ticket, you would be 
trying to help find an answer. 

Contact one of your Student 
Government Senators and tell 
them if you have a solution.

Career counselor 
Helps troubled 

By Robin Aurelius 
Staff Writer 

"Some people can pick a 
career early in their life and 
follow that choice for the rest 
of it, while others can't make 
that decision or regret the one 
they made," said Dr. G.K. 

Holloway, a career counsel- 
or in West Palm Beach, 
lectured at north campus 
business club Phi Beta 
Lambda's meeting on Sunday, 

Many people visit Holloway 
with an unrealistic attitude. 
"They say, 'I want to take 
some vocational tests to solve 
everything'," he said. Due to 
this misconception, he doesn't 
charge first-time visitors. 

"My office is free of charge 
for two reasons," Holloway 
said. "Number one because 
my work in career develop- 
ment appears to be different 
from what is expected. 
Number two, it lets the 
individual get acquainted with 
me and to back out if they feel 
that this is not what they 

Many of his patients are 
those in mid-life crises. "A man 
will come in and say, 'All 
these years I've been 
successful, but I'm not 
happy' , ' ' Holloway said. "It is 
foolish to carry around this 
resentment. Alcohol and 
drugs are poison, but so is 
this. If you don't rid yourself 
of this problem, you'll 
continue to get hurt."

PBJC expands to Forest Hill 

By Cynthia Voisin 
Staff Writer 

On Friday, Oct. 3, an honors English class 
was originated at Forest Hill High School to 
enable participating seniors to receive college 
credit in Freshman Communications. 

The 19 students involved are studying 
from the same textbook used at Palm Beach 
Junior College and will complete all work 
expected of college Freshmen. They will be 
dually enrolled as students of both Forest Hill 
and PBJC. 

The piogram is an outgiowfh of legislative 
initiatives by Gov. Bob Graham when he was in 
the Florida legislature. 

PBJC has had an arrangement for dual 
enrollment of selected students for a number of 
years, but this is only the second time it has 
been possible to arrange for a full class on a 
high school campus. One was previously held at 
Lake Worth High School. 

Dr. Edward M. Eissey, PBJC president, and 
Bobby Riggs, Forest Hill High School principal, 
are responsible for the imtital impetus for the' 
new program. Exact arrangements were 

handled by Dr. Paul Graham, PBJC vice 
president of academic affairs, and Dr. Mona 
Jenson, Forest Hill's assistant principal. 

"We are hoping that this first course will be 
successful and that many of the students will 
want to enroll for the second semester of 
Freshman Communications early next year. 
Students who complete the year's work will 
have six semester credits at PBJC," Graham 

Eissey said he has expectations of a 
successful program at Forest Hill and wants to 
expand this kind of cooperative effort to include 
any high school desirous of it. 

' 'This is j ust the first of many steps we care to 
initiate. We are currently registering seniors at 
their campus for courses they will take through 
our college, as their terminal is hooked up to our 
computer, Eissey said. 

"It's our intention to establish new honors 
programs for gifted students who will be coming 
to PBJC, as well as those already enrolled here,

The Libertarian candidate also examined 
Republican candidate Ronald Reagan and 
incumbent Jimmy Carter's policies. Clark felt 
that both men's stand on the issues are not 
sufficient to fill the wants and means of the 
American people. 

He accused Reagan of wanting more and 
bigger government in Washington. He also took 
a swipe at independent candidate John 
Anderson by saying that "he is the 

establishment candidate in this election." 

After Clark concluded his speech, he entered 
the SAC lounge to answer questions from the 
news media. The Beachcomber asked Clark if 
he honestly felt he could successfully bring 
Republicans and Democrats together on Capitol 
Hill to begin work on a tax cut if he were 
president. Clark answered by saying "I feel that 
Libertarian policies would be strong enough to 
unite both Republicans and Democrats would 
reach some sort of a compromise on that issue. 
There would also be Libertarian forces in 
Washington helping to ensure that a tax cut 
would pass."

Hooray for Capt. Rawlings 

By Todd Schupper 
Staff Writer 

Captain Rawlings was the only person known to be in direct 
psychic communication with Arthur Treacher. He commanded the 
same sailing ship for twenty-two years. When it sank, he took up 

He became world renowned for his juggling prowess. He even 
made the cover of the Rolling Stone. But Captain Rawlings* secret 
dream remained unfulfilled: The Captain longed for the day when 
he would juggle three bowling balls to an audience consisting of 
the reuni ted cast of ' ' Green Acres ' ' . 

Assembling the cast was not as difficult as he had anticipated. 
Eddy Albert agreed to gather them at Lqm's.- The problem was 
Captain Rawlings' advanced age. He could not lift three bowling 
balls. Once, he had seen a magician lift an elephant over his head 
by reciting a magic word. If the word was strong enough to life an 
elephant, he reasoned, then it should be able to raise three 
bowling balls. 

The people of Hooterville tried to guess the secret word. 
"Shazam", said Mr. Haney. "Abracadabra", said Sam Drucker. 
"snort, snort", said Arnold the Pig. "No, no", said Captain 
Rawlings. "The secret word is", he announced grandly, hoisting 
the bowling bails into his arms," "Hernia", he finished, and 
collapsed on the floor.

Salute forPvt. Benjamin 

By Angee Morris 
Feature Editor 

Private Benjamin is a must 
for any movie-goer who 
appreciates good comedy. 
With her latest effort, Goldie 
Hawn has proven herself to be 
the '80's equivalent to what 
Lucille Ball was in the '50's. 

Private Benjamin is the 
story of an upper-middle class 
girl who's life takes a drastic 
change upon her entry into the 
atmy. Judy Benjamin (Hawn) 
is a naive woman of 
twenty-eight who's ultimate 
goal in life is to marry a 
professional man. 

Her dreams are fulfilled in 
the first scene as she marries 
Yale Goodman (Albert Brooks) 
a lawyer. On her wedding 
night, her dream is ended 
when Yale, in the throws of 
passion, dies of a heart attack. 

Alone for the first time in 
her life, Judy holes up in a 
motel room for eight days and 
spills her guts on an all-night 
radio talk show. A sympathetic 
listener tells her that he can 
offer a solution to all her 
troubles. Unknown to Judy, 
the sympathetic ear is an army 

The recruiter soon offers 
Judy a life in the "new" army, 
"the army of the '80s, where 
every soldier gets his or her 
own room." The wily recruiter 


Goldie Hawn in Pvt. Benjamin 

smiles and promises to get 
Judy in the best shape of her 
life. An eager Judy replies, 
"Yeah, it'll be like three years 
at La Costa." 

Our sheltered heroine is 
rudely awakened upon her 
arrival at the basic training 
camp. All her illusions are 
shattered when her captain 
(Eileen Brennan) gives Judy 
her first assignment — 
cleaning the latrines with her 
toothbrush. From this point

Drop your guard 
for a minute. 

Even though you're 
in a two-year college 
right now, there are 
many aspects of the 
Army you might find very attractive. 
Maybe even irresistible. 

See for yourself. 


If you're thinking of eventually 
going to a four-year college, it's not 
too early to start thinking about an 
ROTC scholarship. 

There are 2-year and even 1-year 
ROTC scholarships available. 

They cover tuition, books, and 
lab fees. Plus $100 a month living 
allowance. Naturally, they're very 
competitive. Because besides helping 
you towards your bachelor's degree, 
an ROTC scholarship helps you 
towards the gold bars of an Army 
Officer. It's worth looking into. 


With two years of college under 
your belt, you can get preferential 
consideration for Warrant Officer 
Flight Training. 

If you pass all the tests and 
qualify, you'll go through 40 weeks 
of rigorous and valuable training. 

You'll earn the distinctive bars of 
a warrant officer and the silver wings 
of an Army aviator. You'll have at 
least 175 hours of flight instruction, 
40 hours with a flight simulator, 4 
weeks night qualification, and 
enough classroom work in aerody- 
namics, meteorology and aerial 
navigation to last a lifetime. 

The result is a rewarding, 
responsible and prestigious position 
as an Army helicopter pilot. 


What you've learned in college 
has already earned you a promotion 
in the Army. 

Ymi 9 
w ■ 

It's true. If you join the Army 
with two years of college, you can 
start two pay grades higher. Instead 
of being an E-l with an empty sleeve, 
you can come in as E-3 with stripes. 

It means about $60 more a month 
in your paycheck. And a lot more op- 
portunity in the long run. Since you'll 
be literally wearing your education 
on your sleeve, your talents won't go 
unnoticed by your superiors. 

And starting out right can really 
help you make the most of the Army. 


You can get a $1,500 bonus just 
for enlisting in some Army Reserve 
units. Or up to $2,000 in educational 

You also get paid for your 
Reserve duty. It comes out to about 
$1,000 a year for 16 hours a month 
and two weeks annual training. 

And there's a special 
program that lets you fit 
your Army Reserve active 
duty around your school 

It's something to con- 
sider. Because even if you 
went to a two-year college 
because it was less expen- 
sive than a four-year col- 
lege, you know by now that 
it still isn't cheap. 




If you're thinking you 
might even go further with 
your college education, the 
Army can help there, too. 

A few years in the 
Army can help you 
get not only the 
money for tuition, 
but also the maturity 
to use it wisely. 

The Army has a program in 
which money you save for college 
is matched two-for-one by the 
government. Then, if you qualify, 
generous bonuses are added to that. 

So 2 years of service can get 
you up to $7,400 for college, 3 years 
up to $12,100, and'4 years lirp to 
$14,100. In addition, bonuses up to 
$3,000 are available for certain 4- 
year enlistments in selected skills. 

Add in all the experience and 
maturity you can get, and you can 
see how the Army can send you back 
to college a richer person in more 
ways than one. 

We hope these Army oppor- 
tunities have intrigued you as well 
as surprised you. 

Because there is indeed a lot 
the Army can offer a bright person 
like you.

Bowie's 'Scary Monsters' frighteningly good 

Monday, October 20, 1980 BEACHCOMBER - 7 

By Bill Meredith 

David Bowie attacks any- 
thing and everything on 
"Scary Monsters", his 17th 
LP. Perhaps never in his 
illustrious and turbulent 
career has Bowie been more 
pointed in attack, or written an 
accumulation of more pro- 
found lyrics for an album. 

It is very hard to criticize the 
man, for he has opened so 
many doors in rock, disco and 
new wave- and because he is 
so unpredictable as an artist. 

Take "It's No Game (Part 
1)", the album's opening cut. 
Guest vocalist Michi Hirota 
recites the lyrics in Japanese, 
trading off with Bowie, who 
bellows them in IMglish. "It's 
No Game (Part 2)" is the 
album's final cut, and finds 
Bowie alone and singing very 
calmly and precisely, as if the 
turn of events on the LP have 
sedated him. 

It is an interesting contrast 
considering that the songs' 
titles and lyrics seem to imply 
that life leaves one in need of 
sedation — "Draw the blinds 
on yesterday, and it's all so 
much scarier". 

Indeed, the album is more 
lyrical than instrumental, but 
consider the guest list of 
musicians, which includes 
Robert Fripp, Pete Town^hend, 
Andy Clark and Roy Bittan. 
On "It's No Game (Part 1) " 
Fripp ignores Bowie's "shut 
up!" and continues playing 
his deranged-sounding guitar 

Fripp is also outstanding on 
"Fashion", which attacks 
disco ("We are the goon 
squad and we're coming to 
town, beep beep") and, of 
course, the fashions. The 
guitarist solos in his wild, 
bizarre manner, sounding 
quite like Hendrix. 

In the title track Bowie 
becomes a "scary monster" 
himself and takes an interest- 
ing view on his ladyfriend in 
the song "Now she's stupid in 
the street and she can't 
socialize, I love the little girl 
and I'll love her 'till the day 
she dies". Drummer Dennis 
Davis and bassist George 
Murray hold a repetitious beat 
as Bowie and backing vocalists 
chant to the finish, much like 
on "TVC 15" from the 
"Station to Station" LP. 

In "Ashes to Ashes", the 
new single, Bowie even dares 
to attack the legendary Major 
Tom (from ''Space Oddity"), 
saying "We know Major 
Tom's a junky, strung out in 
heaven's high hitting an all 
time low' ' . 

The only shortcoming on 
side one is "Up the Hill 
Backwards." Beginning with a 
Latin-ish beat, the tune soon, 
gets monotonous because of 
the drowsy vocal and acoustic 
guitar accompaniment. 

Perhaps the best lyrics on 
"Scary Monsters" are found 
on "Teenage Wildlife". Bowie 
strangely attacks " 
wave boys- same old thing in 
brand new drag", and 
continues to describe the 
problems of growing old, 
treating an old subject with 
new vigor. 

"Scream Like a Baby" is a 
bizarre song of revenge and 
death, and "Kingdom Come", 
written by Tom Verlaine, finds 
Bowie as a prisoner seeking 
the salvation that only death 
will bring- "I won't be 
breaking no rocks when the 
Kingdom comes." 

"Because You're Young" 

Intramural football heads towards stretch run; 
Bombers and Orange Crush fight for football title 

tells of the gullibility of youth 
and it's consequences, "a 
million dreams, a million 
scars". Townshend's guitar is 
buried in the mix under Andy 
Clark's synthesizer, but the 
fine lyrics are the focal point, 
as they are throughout the 

"Scary Monsters" is a 
strange LP, mainly in that 
David Bowie attacks many 
trends which he has influen- 
ced and shaped-youth, new 
wave, disco, fashions, even 
himself. At the album's 

conclusion, electronic sounc^ 
imply applause, but why lh| 
implication rather than tl%' 
real thing? ^ 

No one knows, or ever wl? 
know, what strange thin^. 
lurk in the mind of Dawf 
Bowie- maybe that is why h 
has remained one of music! 
most popular personalities, t 

Recording (by Bowie aril 
Tony Visconti) is excellent 
and the best tracks are "Itf 
No Game," "Kingdom! 
Come", "Fashion", "Ashff 
to Ashes" and "Teenar" 
Wildlife". Album rated 8.

The PBJC Intramural Foot- 
ball season is drawing to an 
end after four of five 
scheduled games. 

The first game was on Sept. 
22 between the Beachcomber 
Bombers and the 69ers. A 
touchdown pass from Joey 
Pouliot to Jose Rodriguez put 
the Bombers on the board with 
a 6-0 lead. 

The Bombers gained 2 
points when a lineman drove a 
69er into the end zone for a 
safety. Rodriguez scored on a 
25-yard pass from James 
Walker as the Bombers went 
into the half leading 14-0. 

After the half, the 69ers 
managed to score two 
touchdowns, ending the game 

The Orange Crush 
played its first game on Sept. 
28 against the 69ers. 

Led by the running of Bob 
Pancione, the Crush defeated 
the 69ers 13-7. An exceptional 
extra point catch by Tom Buck 
and a finger tip interception by 
John R. Williams helped the 
Crush gain its victory. 

The game scheduled be- 
tween the Orange Crush and 
R.B.Boys for Oct. 12 was 
awarded to the Orange Crush 
by forfeit. 

On Oct. 14, the Bombers 
gained a 28-6 victory over the

The Legend in Times Square 

By Angee Morris, Feature Editor 

In our last episode, we left the 
Legend walking the streets of New 
York in a depressed state because 
he could not get into Studio 54. We 
resume our story in Times Square 
where our hero is awed by all the 
activities going on. 

The bright lights, the loud music, 
the people laughing all spell 
excitement. As he turns on to 42nd 
Street, The Legend is approached by 
a salesman. 

"Hey, my man, Wanna buy some 
s--t?' ' barks the salesman. 

Puzzled, Meeks replies, "why 
would I want to buy it?" Bill brushes 
the vender aside and continues on 
his way. Further down the street he 
spies an attractive lady. The lady is 

wearing a skirt slit up to her 
midsection, black stockings with a 
seam up the back, and a red low cut 
blouse. Meeks approaches her. 

"Hi, there," he says with a smile. 
' 'Are you busy tonight? ' ' 

"Not too busy for you," she 
answers also smiling. 

"Would you like to go have dinner 
with me?" he suggests. "I saw a 
nice little restaurant back a way. It's 
called The Golden Fork Buffet. ' ' 

"Oh, gee, I'm not really dressed 
for it," she says. "Let's go to my 
place so that I can slip into 
something more comfortable." 

Meeks nods and she moves from 
the lamp post on which she was 
leaning. Together, they make their 
way down the street. 

"By the way, what's your name," 

he asks with a raised eyebrow, "lit 
name is ...." 

"Don't be silly, every one knoi\ 
who you are," her voice filled wit 
pride. "Why you're the Legend. Nf| 
name is Roxanne. ' ' 1 

They stop walking abruptly. Th^ 
are still on 42nd Street. j 

"Well, this is it," Roxanne tel

successful extra point pass to 
Jose Rodriguez. The Bombers 
led 14-0. 

With 3 minutes left in the 
half, Pee Wee intercepted a 
pass and ran it back 60 yards 
for another Bomber touch- 

At the beginning of the 
second half, Phil Callea 
intercepted a R.B. Boys' pass 
to put the bombers in position 
for another touchdown. Later 
in the half, Rodriguez scored 
on a short pass and added the 
extra point to put the Bombers 
ahead 28-0. 

With 15 seconds left in the 
game, Ralph Urenu of the 
R.B. boys caught a touchdown 
pass, ending the game at 28-6. 

Until the middle of last 
week, four teams competed in 
the league. Last week, the 
fifth team, the Grays, played 
their first game against the 
Orange Crush. 

Fierce defensive plays by 
Walter Laird, Kenny Meade, 
and Roger Sharpe helped to 
shut down the Grays' 
offensive attack. 

In the second half, the 
Grays scored on a touchdown 
pass from Rick Christmas to 
Tim Simmons. John Smith 
caught the extra point pass.

Enjoy fascinating undersea world t 

The Voice of Palm Beach Junior College 

Florida's first public community college. 

You too can be a Jacques Cousteau 

There is a fascinating world 
on this planet which goes 
unnoticed by most people. 
This world is the undersea 
world. Although the ocean is 
easy to get to and free, most 
people think it is too expensive 
to become a certified driver. 

It may be tather expensive if 
you walk into a dive shop, buy 
equipment, and take lessons. 
However, now there is an 

opportunity to become a 

certified diver and save a 

bundle of money. 
Palm Beach Junior College 

is offering intramural scuba 
diving. The instructor of the 
course is Bob Dietch, a 
professional instructor at the 
Reef Dive Shop in Lantana, 
and part-time physical educa- 
tion teacher at PBJC. 
Classes have already begun 

with the first lecture Wednes- 
day, Oct. 8. If enough people 
are interested, Dietch is 
willing to begin a late class 
within the next couple of 

To find out more about the 
course, see Coach Roy Bell in 
the intramural office in the 
gym, or contact Bob Dietch 
through the school. 

The" instruction costs $90 of 
which PBJC pays $20. At a 
dive shop the same instruction 

costs approximately $110. 
Students must supply mask, 
fins, snorkle, and textbook. 
These items can be purchased 
at the Reef Dive Shop with a 
10 percent discount. The total 
package costs $66. 
The school supplies air 

tanks, backpack, regulator, 
weight belt, and buoyancy 
compensator vest. This equip- 
ment as a package costs 
approximately $350. 

It equipment and lessons 
are bought at a dive shop, the 
total cost would be close to 
$500. If taken through PBJC, 
supplies and instruction would 
cost only $136.

Ken Taylor is the father of 
eleven children. That, in itself, 
is joy explosion and a 
bundleful of responsibility. 
Above all else, Daddy Taylor 
wanted his children to know 
God and His Word. But the 
King James Bible just did not 
make sense to the little 

Mr. Taylor rode the 
"Roaring Elgin" elevated 
from Wheaton to Chicago 
every day — one hour each 
way. He began translating the 
Bible during those two hours a 
day. Believing that God's Holy 
Spirit directed even the 
translation of Scripture and 
knowing the Hebrew (Old 
Testament) and Greek of the 
New Testament, Ken worked 

out a translation everyone can 
understand and called it ' 'The 
Living Bible." Here is John 

"Let not your heart be 
troubled. You are trusting 
God, now trust in Me. 

There are many homes up 
there where My Father lives, 
and I am going to prepare 
them for your coming. When 
everything is ready, then I will 
come and get you, so that you 
can always be with Me where I 
am. If this weren't so, I would 
tell you plainly. 

"You know where I am 
going and how to get there. 

"I am the way — yes, and 
the Truth and the Life. No one 
can get to the Father except by 
means of Me." 


Something new is moving in 
the Palm Beach Junior College 
Bible Club. Dr. Stanton is 
busy preparing a textbook for 
Old Testament in January so 
her time is curtailed. But 
others have stepped in to help 
with the club. 

We continue to meet at the 
round tables in the south wing 
of the cafeteria on Thursdays 
from about 11 a.m. until 1:3° 
There is a small rack of 
Christian growth booklets and 
some tracts. Mrs. Gladys 
Anderson from Dean Moss' 


office will see to it that the pad 
for registering names is on the 
table by 11 o'clock. Come, 
sign in with your address and 
telephone if it is the first time. 
Then eat your lunch with us, 
have a coke or a cup of cocoa 
and share interesting things. 

Look through the booklets 
and tracts to see if something 
interests you. Take it along, 
keep it if you want or return it 
to exchange it for another one 
next week. 

Several faculty and staff 
people have volunteered to 

meet with the club during 
their time from classes. Mr. 
Frank Adams (Communica- 
tions) will meet as he can; so ; 
will Nancy Warne and a couple 
of staff from the main office. 
As others are contacted and 
confirmed, we will announce 
them. Come and meet them 
and enjoy the other Christians 
on campus. Hector Mendoza 
will carry the student aspect 
and act as moderator of 
"President - by- Appoint- 
ment." He's neat, you ought 
to know him.

PBJC granted $4.9 million 

Five-year grant to research 
And develop cattail gasohol 

Lantana Boatyard President Elliott 
Donnelley, PBJC President Ed 
Eissey, and Rep. Dan Mica announce 
the largest federal grant in school 
history, an initial $400,000 for the 
research and development of cattails 
for alcohol production at a press 
conference Oct. 22. 

Hypnotist Eagles awes small audience 

By Michele Kurteff 

Despite a small audience 
and a stuffy gym, mentahst/ 
S-.ypnotist Gil Eagles awed 
even the skeptics at a 
perfotmance on Friday, Oct. 

Early in the program Eagles 
candidly told spectators he did 
not guarantee 100 percent 
accuracy in all his attempts. 
Seconds after this statement 
he correctly told a male 
member of the audience the 
exact amount of change he had 
in his pocket. 

Next, Eagles instructed a 
female faculty member to 
think of any number between 
one and 100. He took a 
moment to write down the 
digits on a piece of paper and 
then showed it to the 
participant. The number 

Eagles scribbed down and the 
volunteer's number were 

Two student volunteers 
assisted Eagles in a major part 
of the show. The helpers aided 
Eagles in putting coins, layers 
of adhesive tape and a leather 
blindfold over his eyes to 
prohibit vision. Audience 
members were stunned as 
Eagles precisely described 
objects they had offered the 
assistants to put on the stage. 

Still unable to see, Eagles 
asked the audience to write 
down their names, a question 
of importance and a date or 
number. Both volunteers 
collected the slips of paper and 
placed them in a punch bowl 
on the stage. Eagles recited 
about a dozen names and 
dates to the audience. On the 
humorous side, Eagles reveal- 
ed some embarrassing quest- 

Receiving assistance from student Debbie 
Harrell, the Eagles gets a "tape job" in 
preparation for a mental illusion.

Staff Writer 

PBJC President Ed Eissey announced on 
Wednesday, Oct. 22, that PBJC has been 
awarded a $4.9 million five-year grant, the 
largest single grant in PBJC history. 

The grant will be used for research and 
development in converting cattails into alcohol, 
which then can be used for gasohol. Since 
cattails grow in wet areas, the Palm Beach 
County area is ideal for development of the new 
fuel — "aquahol." 

Cattails produce three crops per year andean 
produce nearly 4,000 gallons of aquahol yearly 
per acre. Gressinger Farms has allotted PBJC 
80 acres of land near the Glades area to be used 
for the project. 

The cattail grant is spearheaded by Eissey, 
science department chairman Paul Dasher, and 
Jim Brannigon from the Lantana Boatyard, who 
will be in communication with Washington, 

PBJC will receive the first $4,000 of the grant 
fiom the Department of Energy in the early part 
ot 1981. The project has been in the works for I 
1/2 yeats. Eissey ci edits Rep. Dan Mica for 
helping make the grant possible. 

Mica said that one of the strong points of the 
grant application was that it involved not only 
the college, but was a cooperative effort of 
education, industry and agriculture. 

The lesearch grant is designed to produce a 
modular, scaled-down version of a full-sized 
farming and distilling operation, from which 
accurate estimates of market potential can be 

Mixtures of gasoline and alcohol are the 
immediate practical results hoped for through 
the grant, but cattails also can be converted into 
methanol, an even more flexible energy storage 
system than alcohol.

Near the end of the 
performance, Eagles display- 
ed his talent for hypnosis as he 
cast his spell on nine people. 
The audience was fascinated 
as he demanded the subjects 
to unlock their arms from a 
parallel position in front of 
them. This was an impossible 
task for all. 

Drawing the evening to a 
close, Eagles briefly explained 
what hypnosis is all about. 
Telling the audience to close 
their eyes and picture various 
objects, he then related how 

people picture something in 
their mind first and then go 
through the motions to 
actually bring that picture to 


News Brief 

Duncan named top 1 980 Floridian 

By Bill Meredith 

Communications depart - 
ftient Chairman Watson B. 
Duncan III was the recipient of 
the 1980 Phi Theta Kappa 
Distinguished Floridian 
Awaid, honoring the person 
Who best exemplifies the 
1980-81 national theme, "Man 
in Crisis. A Quest for Values. ' ' 

The award, presented in the 
^BJC Auditorium on the 
horning of Oct. 20 during 
Duncan's English Literature 
class, surprised the students 
Mio responded with a 
landing ovation. 

PTK Chapter President 
Catherine Ciannilli presented 
^ plaque along with chapter 

Secretary Dottie Meister, 
chapter sponsors Allen Ham- 
lin and Daniel Hendrix, and 
PBJC President Edward M. 

"In this world where so 
many things are mediocre, Phi 
Theta Kappa stands as an 
outstanding contributor to our 
community" Duncan said. "I 
accept this award with 
surprise and humility." 

Duncan was nominated for 
the honor by Delta ~Omicron, 
the central campus chapter of 
Phi Theta Kappa, at their state 
convention in Clearwater, 
Fla., Oct. 10-12. Duncan was 
unable to attend the conven- 
tion, and thus the special 

presentation was made last 

The recipient of last year's 
Distinguished Floridian 
Award, also nominated by 
Delta Omicron, was Florida 
Gov. Bob Graham. 

"I truly love Watson B. 
Duncan," Eissey said. "He 
has done more for Palm Beach 
Junior College than any of it's 
presidents ever have , and I 
mean that sincerely." 

The final paragraph of 
Duncan's Delta Omicron 
chapter recommendation 
reads: "Because he has 
touched us so deeply, we at 
Delta Omicron have made 
Watson B. Duncan, a man of 

integrity and an inspiration to 
his fellow man, an honorary 
member of Phi Theta Kappa. 
He best exemplifies the values 
that Phi Theta Kappa 
members are in quest of this 
year, and is truly deserving of 
the honor of the Distinguished 
Floridian of 1980 Award. "

Carter and Reaaan cancel — 

Where are the candidates? 

Things are hazy around PBJC as to the 
nationwide political scene. In last week's issue, 
we printed a front page box telling of a 
scheduled Ronald Reagan visit to our campus 
and a possible stop by President Carter, 

Regrettably, but certainly not surprisingly, 
neither showed up; and the events surrounding 
the two cancellations are intriguing. 

Gov. Reagan reportedly cancelled because of 
needed preparation time for tomorrow night's 
League of Women Voters' debate with 
President Carter, certainly a valid excuse if 

But according to Carter spokeswoman Missy 
Maxman, Mr. Carter never intended to visit 
PBJC, not tentatively (as we reported), not at 
all. "Everything you printed is inaccurate" she 
said. "You should have checked your 
information. ...nothing was released about 
President Carter coming to PBJC. Where did 
you get this information? ' ' 

This information was offered to the 
Beachcomber by Political Union faculty advisor 
Edwin Pugh, who agreed to our printing that 
Carter was "tentatively scheduled to appear" 
and would "possibly stop at the college." 

Ms. Maxman was not satisfied, saying that 
"tentatively" lead some to believe that Carter 
would indeed appear when he had no intention 
to whatsoever. Maxman also reported that Pugh 
denied telling the Beachcomber that 
"tentatively scheduled" was acceptable. When 
confronted by the Beachcomber, Pugh said he 
did not deny this to the Carter camp. 

Something is definitely wrong here. We will 
not point a finger at anyone, but we cannot in 
good conscience take the blame for some poor 
misinformed soul standing in the Sunshine 
Court last week wondering where in the hell 
Carter and Reagan were. 

The Beachcomber has recently been criticized 
for not covering the area of politics in a thorough 
or effective manner, and that being when a 
political figure DOES show up, but we certainly 
have been limited in our criticism to the ones 
responsible for the rash of recent political 
letdowns at PBJC. 

We have learned our lesson, so look for a 
change in our political coverage. We are a 
newspaper, not the National Enquirer, and from 
now on we will cover news, not speculation.

To the Editor: 

On Monday, Oct. 20, 1980, 
the Beachcomber stated that 
President Carter was "tenta- 
tively scheduled to appear at 
PBJC" on Tuesday. 

This is a time of great 
political activity for all 
candidates and, as supporters 
of Jimmie (sic) Carter for 
President, we wish that he 
would be able to come to Palm 
Beach Junior College. How-

never on his schedule, even

To the Editor: 

I would like to correct a 
report in the Oct. 20, 1980 
issue of the Beachcomber. The 
article stated that President 
Carter was "tentatively 
scheduled" to appear at PBJC 
during his recent campaign 
swing through Florida. 

At no time did the county, 
state, or national Carter/ 
Mondale Campaign Commit- 
tee announce plans for the 
President to appear at Palm 
Beach Junior College. 

Since the President's 
scheduled visit to Florida 
included stops only in Miami 
and Orlando, it is a mystery to 
the Carter/Mondale staff how 
your school's publication 
arrived at the conclusion that 
it did. Although the President 
was '. unable to .visit your 
campus, I am hopeful that we 
will still schedule an appear- 
ance by him or a ranking 
official in the administration 
by the election. 

I would like to add that Mr. 
Reagan backed out of a 
scheduled speech at the 
college after his office had 
previously announced that he 
would speak on campus.

We wish to express a

their facial expressions. In our

time. We believe it is 
unreasonable to expect anyone

During &e last week the Beachcomber has been under attack 
for its 'lack of professionalism" by many Jimmy Carter 

The Carter people were enraged at this publication's report that 
the president was "tentatively scheduled" to appear on campus 

UCli j£1* 

"The rflystery" Mr. Woods refers to does not exist. The 
Beachcomber came to its conclusion because we received word 
{Thursday evening, Oct. 16] from political union faculty advisor 
bdwin Pugh that there was a possibility the president would 
appear on campus. 

Mr. Pugh has served as a "source" for the Beachcomber for 
many years and is very much respected by the editors and staff. 

We can certainly sympathize with democrats who believe this 
paper should have backed up its "Up". Granted, it wouldn't ha\e 
taken any effort on our part to pick up the phone and get 
confirmation on Carter's visit. 

We do however hope that the Carter camp appreciates our 
position too. We are getting fed up with no show candidates and 
ail the space it takes up in our paper. 

To the Editors: 

The Palm Beach Blood Bank would like to 
thank the Palm Beach Junior College students, 
faculty, and staff for their excellent response to 
this years campus blood drive. At the main 
campus on Oct. 15, 1980 we were able to 
register 137 participants and collected 101 units 
of blood. The north campus followed on Friday, 
Oct. 17 with 69 registered and 51 units drawn. 
These totals represent significant increases over 
previous drives and everyone should be 

Special thanks to Dr. Melvin Haynes, Jr., 
John Schmeiderer. John Jenkins, Pat Moore 
and Robert Moss as well as the members of the 
Palm Beach Junior College Circle K club. Their 

recruitment efforts proved invaluable to the 
success of our drives. 

The importance of student donors to any 
volunteer blood program goes without question. 
Nationwide, approximately 60 percent of all 
donors fall in the 17-29 age group. Florida has 
always lagged far behind in this area and it is 
refreshing to see this type of upswing. With 
more drives this school year, the blood bank is 
certain our college accounts will continue to 

Thanks again to those many "Special People" 
who participated.

Board overwhelmingly approves change 

By Ehvood News 
Blues Editor 

In a surprise move, the 
Palm Beach Junior College 
Board of Trustees (BOT) voted 
unanimously to change the 
name of PBJC to Slim 
Whitman Junior College 

The change is based mostly 
on the unexplained "Whit- 

mania" that is sweeping the 
Southeast and has earned the 
handsome Whitman over $34 

Next week the issue of 
changing the nickname of the 
college will come before the 
board. "Babies," "Junkies," 
"Skyline Ducks," "Jodats," 
and "Togas," have all been 
suggested as an alternative to 


We're very proud to be 
named after such a distinctive 
American," said SWJC Pres- 
ident Ed Easy. "1 agree with 
the change 200 pounds." 

Campus reaction ranged 
from stunned silence to joyous 
glee. Circle K, SWJC's social 
club, lesponded by wearing 
tiny false Slim Whitman 


The Political Union and 
advisor Edwin Phew held a 
protest for 10 hours in front of 
the Bookstore thinking it was 
the Administration Building. 

Student Government Pres- 
ident Ed Raviolio said, "Boy, 
this is keen. Slim's music is 

Area rednecks were also 

joyous. An estimated $30,000 
damage was done to the

SWJC sets record 


200,000 enrolled for winter 

By Elwood Blues 
News Editor 

Slim Whitman Junior College (formerly Palm 
Beach Junior College) set an all-time Florida 
community college record as an unprecedented 
200,000 students are officially enrolled for the 
1981 winter term. 

The increase of 1,000 percent over the fall 
term is attributed mostly to the recent influx 
into South Florida of 6.4 million Cuban, Hatian, 
Afghanistan, Cambodian, Colombian, Iranian,, 
Korean, Liberian, Mongolian, Nigerian, 
Tanzanian, and Vietnam refugees, not to 
mention an additional 698,000 assorted 
wetbacks and 45 members of the Slim Whitman 
Fan Club. 

"This is the most splendid thing that has ever 
happened to this fine institution," said SWJC 

President Ed Easy. "With our four campuses 
and expanding facilities, we should be able to 
expect no less than 450 students per class. I 
think we should have no problems. 1 agree with 
the increased enrollment 650 kilometers." 

Despite the increased enrollment, only 23 
students showed up for a political rally 
yesterday on the SAC Lounge patio. President 
Jimmy Carter, former heavyweight champion 
Muhammed Ali, Cub^n leader Fidel Castro, and 
former Spanish dictator Francisco Franco all 
spoke at the rally. 

In other news, the state of Florida has granted 
SWJC $6.5 million for expansion of the Student 
Publications Office. "I was hoping for ten but 
six and a half will do," said Slimcomber 
co- editor Midol Kurves. 

Afghanistan immigrant Igon- 
na Kik Buddl waits in line to 
register for winter classes last 
week. "I come to de U.S. to 
get good education. I also here 
of this Slim Whitman. Slim be 
berry, berry good to me."

Student explodes 

By My Friend Tony 
Staff Stud 

A part-time student exploded in front of the Administration 
Building on Monday, Dec. 1 according to the PBJC Chief of 
Security. Cause of the explosion is unknown but administration 
officials speculate it was some sort of protest on the part of 
Sigmund Snerd, 19, of Lantana. 

Snerd's remains were reported to have been scattered as far 
as the tennis courts, but reports are sketchy as excited students 
quickly gathered up the pieces as souvenirs^ 

This marks the second time a student has exploded" on campus 
this year. Local legend Bill Meeks erupted back on Nov. 6 when 
he learned he would have to attend PBJC for a fifth year. 

Leather night tonight 

The humanities department will hold its third annual leather 
night festival tonight from 8 p.m. until midnight in the SAC 

The theme for this years engagement is "Crack That Whip". 

Quirt Parchment, sponsor of the festival and owner of the 
Underground Palace, hopes this years gathering will be just as 
thrilling as the past two. He encourages all participants to bring 
an odd torturing device. If it is used during the night you'll be 
eligible to win a leather night T-shirt. 

Bats attack students 

Today at the SWJC main campus, terror was unleashed when 
a herd of man-eating fruit bats attacked students in front of the 
cafeteria. The fruit bats seemed to go after students with orange 
hair and black teeth. One student had his leg ripped off by the 
bats and is planning to sue the school.

Hearst was proud 
of his tattoos 

"Iowa, por favor", said 
William Rndolph Hearst after 
sex. Maybe tomorrow, ans- 
wered Tony Rizzo, his cousin 
by a second marriage. 
Damned Commies, he mutter- 
ed under his arm. Where are 
the pliers? The midget 
borrowed them along with the 
Miracle Whip. It's his 
birthdaj Tuesday. 

Hearst always looked kindly 
upon midgets. In fact he kept 
one as a hood ornament. His 
greatest pleasures were Arab- 
ian boys and Dirty Harry 
movies. He did own a farm. 

In Iowa, foi exercise, 
William Randolph stood inside 
his tall white silo and punted 
his chickens, pietending they 
were Russian Communist 
spies He despised Commun- 
ists as much as he loved 
midgels. He prayed every 
night that there were no such 
things as Communist midgets. 

This day he was bored, 
nothing to do. He finished 
bieakfast and went out for a 
tatoo, slopping off to retrieve 
his plieis. Hearst had his 
palms tatooed with the 
emblem of the United States 

Navy submarine corps. He had 
nevei been in the Navy, but he 
had always liked the little 
dolphins in the emblem. 

William Randolph Hearst 
was pi cud of his tattoos, and 
when they dried he took them 
downtown to show them off. 
The people in town had mixed 
reactions to his tattoos; some 
did not caie for them all Some 
enjoyed them very much. 
William was pleased with their 
response, so was the tattooist 

Burt was so excited that he 
had a tattoo sale. Everybody in 

town had themselves tattooed. 
Some even brought their 
cats. Cat tattoos are more 
expensive. The animal must 
be completely shaved and then 
snapped to a butcher block 
table This was the first time 
that Burt had ever tattooed a 

cat. All he could think to do 
was to write a poem he had 
once seen in a greeting card. 
Burt's business improved 
when it became fashionable to 
send greeting cats through the 
mail. And what of William? 
He hated cats

Keep cranking out the tunes, Slim 

Fall, 1980 SLIMCOMBER -3 

By Slim Cleverly 
Staff Infection 

Slim Whitman the man, the 
myth, the legend, was born on 
probation in the small fishing 
village of Nairowneck, La. on 
Oct. 1, 1944, and then again a 
week after that m Quaalude 
County, Penn. 

His musical background was 
attained by growing up with 
such famous musicians as Pink 
Floyd, John Bonham, and Jim 
Nabors. Slim always liked the 
guitar. He said, "I like the 
way the strings feel against 
my fingers " 

Slim's parents were always 
in favor of his musical career, 
even though his father was a 
T.V. quiz master and 
river-widening engineer and 
his mother was a scrap metal 
dealer and up and coming 
boxer. Though poor, Slim 
managed to make money by 
selling drugs and parapher- 
nalia. Slim said "I like my 
parties, and when I am in an 
altered state of mind, I find I 
can create my music better." 

Slim's first big hits were 
"Rose Marie" and "Have I 

Told You Lately That I Love 
You." But his first big thrill 
was playing back up for Jimi 
Hendrix at Woodstock. Slim 
said, "I had a real good time 
man, but Jimi stole all the 
leads. I tried to play with my 
teeth and had to get caps the 
next day, that is why I have 
such a nice smile." 

After Woodstock, Slim took 
some time off from music and 
helped his father on game 
shows and widening rivers. No 
one heard from Slim for a long 
time.Thensuddenly at the "No 
Nukes" concert he made an 
amazing comeback. Slim 
really went wild, he got into 
the British Invasion. That's 
right, Slim went "New 
Wave." The crowd went wild 
as Slim played with such 
greats as The Pretenders, The 
Clash and Iggy Pop. However, 
Slim will not be appearing in 
the movie because he felt his 
performance was not up to 

Slim was recently released 
from jail on cocaine possession 
charges. Slim said "I didn't 
know it was coke man, 1 

thought it was sugar. Thp 
leason I have this spoon 
around my neck is in case I go 
into an ice cieam shop I can 
sample the flavors without 
using one of the shop's 

Now singing Country & 
Western, Slim is as big today 
as ever. There are even some 


lim's ''Stolen Babies" 

appearing in concert in South 
Florida sometime this winter. 
All we can do is hope. 

So until we hear fiom this 
living legend again, all we can 
say is "Stay High" Slim and 
keep cranking the tunes. 

By II Butingate 
Staff Infection 

"Stolen Babies", Slim 
Whitman's latest album and 
first on I.U.D. records, is a 
divei se piece of eaily-80's iclcy 

v Up until this year, Whitman 
had recorded on the Gunk 
record label. But his numbei 
one single in England, "I Bit 
the Sheriff", caused Gunk 
officials such alarm that he 
was fued, and thus his new 
sound on I.U.D. 

"Skyline Duck", the al- 
bum's opening tiack, sounds 
like the Slim of old. 
Accompanied by only his 
acoustic guitar, he croons 
about his pet duck Ethel which 
died of alcohol poisoning while 
the LP was being completed. 

But Slim's new sound gets 
rolling in "The Man From 
D.U.N.K.L.E.", in which he 
tells of the evening he slept at 
the County Courthouse in 
West Palm Beach. "The next 
day I got to see Ted Nugent's 
divorce" he says excitedly. 
"That really had an effect on

Thus, "Divorce, Gonzo 
Style". Whitman's electric 
guitar sounds surprisingly 
good, and the Nuge does guest 
backing sci earns. Rumor has it 
that Slim was so impressed he 
decided to wear a headband 
and loin cloth on his '81 tour. 

"Puff, the Legless Poodle" 
is a fine blues tune highlighted 
by Whitman's pubescent vocal 
and the guitar line, reminis- 
cent of Keith Richard's on 
"Walking the Dog " 

On "You're a Fine Cow", 
Slim is accompanied only by 
piano. "My main influence for 
that song was an episode of 
' Mr Rogers' Neighborhood" 
he humbly explains. "That 
guy had a great voice, he 
could even sing while milking 
a cow!" 

The most diverse material is 
yet to come, though. "Req- 
uiem foi a Pickei" is an 
instiumental including guitai 
solos by Slim and Glen 
Campbell, and "Get that Dog 
Off My Leg" is a raunchy tune 
about a large, amorous 
Doberman "I don't like 
dogs" Slim explains. 

"My Baby Got Stole" ends 
the album softly. Whitman is 
at his best on this ballad, 
crooning "I feci so down in the 
hole, 'cause my baby gol 
stole". Absolutely marvelous

A good basketball player is 
an asset to any team. In order 
to be a good player a person 
must work hard and long. 
There are many heartaches in 
a player's life along the hard 
climb upwards toward basket- 
ball fame. A good player who 
is serious about playing 
basketball will do everything 
in his power to better himself. 

Keeping physically Fit is one 
of the most important duties of 
a good player. In order to be a 
benefit to his team-mates, who 
will not drink, smoke or stay 
out late during the season. 
Above all he will not sell out 
his fellow players. 

A player who attempts to 
stay out at night, drink, smoke 
and play good basketball, is 
fooling no one but himself. A 
player's body takes a beating 
in the course of a fast game. If 
he is not in top physical 

Sidelines n' Sports 

condition it will show on the 
court. Those who do not keep 
in top shape will in the end, be 
the ones to suffer with a tired, 
worn out, and sick body. So, I 
would like to say to all boys 
who plan to participate in 
basketball that if you do not 
intend to keep in shape, give 
the boys who are willing and 
interested enough to do all 
these things a break. Don't 
come out and ruin a good 
prospective team. A man who 
is not willing to give up his 
drinking, smoking, and night 
life, to a certain extent, to play 
ball should not even consider 
the thought of coming out for 
the team. 

A man who never gives up 
under all odds and who fights 
hard with his team-mates to 
come out on top in a basketball 
game is the kind of man a 
coach wants on his team. 

Junior College, has a bright 

outlook for future teams in 
baseball as well as in 
basketball; so let's back the 
team. If you do not participate 
in any sport, the moral support 
of your team is as important as 
the fellow out there actually 
playing. A group of students 
who back a losing team as well 
as a winning team are the real 
athletes of the school. No team 
can play well if the students of 
the institution which they are 
attending do not come.out to 
show the boys they want him 
to get in there and win. 

School spirit is the most 
important factor in any 
college. Without spirit there 
would be a lack of interest in 
athletics on everybody's part, 
including the athletics. So, 
mav I say again: BACK UP 

22, 1946 and January 1948.

The Intramural Flag Football season closed Tuesday with the

Italian chamber orchestra to present baroque masterpieces 

I Music! with Pina Carntirelli

Sluggish and blue 
Allowing responsible life 
To continue without me,

See your face 
And finally to touch you once 

1 can't seem to find 
Comfortable shoes 
And the job it hurts my feet 
Treading each day 
Wanting only you. 
Convinced that love rekindled 

Ties the strings of ambition 
And my bow of liveliness 
I barely exist. 

Please give me back our 

One of the world's fines 
groups of musicians, the 
Italian chamber group I Musici 
(pronounced ee-muse-e-chee) 
will officially open the 1980-81 
Regional Arts Music "At 
Eight" series with a concert 
on Sunday, Nov. 2 at the West 
Palm Beach Auditorium. 

I Musici, which means "the 
musicians", was founded 
in 1952 by 12 instumentalists 
from all over Italy, stimulated 
by the desire to preserve 
music from the Baroque Era. 
Soon after the group's debut 
in Rome, the legendary 
conductoi Arturo Toscanini 
acclaimed I Musici by stating, 
"Bravo, Bravissimo! No, 
music is not dead." 

Working from the original 
manuscripts of such masters 
as Hanel, Bach, Corelli, 
Locatelli, and Vivaldi, I Musici 
plays without a conductor and 
each member of the ensemble 
is a soloist in his or her own 
right. Also performing a 
repertoire from the pre-Ro- 
mantic, Romatic, and contem- 
porary genres, I Musici 
presents over 150 concerts 

annually throughout the wor- 
ld, is the winner of several 
prestigious awards, and has 
recorded extensively. 

The featured solist for I 
Musici's West Palm Beach 
appearance is violinist Pina 
Carmirelli. Acclaimed Throu- 
ghout Europe and the United 
States as an "elegant" soloist, 
Carmirelli holds the chair of 
violin master at the famed 
Academy of Saint Cecelia in 

The program for I Musici's 
Nov. 2 appearance will be: 
Handel's Concerto Grosso in F 
Major, Op. 6, No. 9; Vivaldi's 
Concerto in A Major, "L'Eco 
in lontano"; Boccherini's 
Concerto in G Major for cello; 
and Mozart's Serenata in G 
Major, "Eine Kleine Nacht- 
musik", K.525.

concert are available by calling

Mica does last minute campaigning 

By Kim Davis 
Staff Writer 

The problem of Cuban and Haitian refugees 
in South Florida was one of the chief issues 
addressed by Rep. Dan Mica, D-W.P.B., during 
his Oct. 30 visit to Palm Beach Junior College. 

Mica sees a trend forming involving Marxist 
and Communist nations. He feels that people 
are being used as economic weapons by some 
countries and feels an international meeting 
should be held between countries experiencing 
problems with refugees to devise a workable 

Support of an extension of the Equal Rights 
Amendment was another problem discussed by 
Mica. ' 'If I am re-elected I will not support an 
extension and would rather see the Equal Rights 
Amendment in forms of law than as an 
amendment to the Constitution, ' ' he said. 

The major point of Mica's speech was the fact 
that he hadn't said anything derogatory in his 
ads, literature, or speeches about his opponent, 
Al Coogler. Mica calls this his "100 percent 
positive campaign." 

In other news, the latest fingerprinting 

techniques developed by the FBI were 
demonstrated by FBI specialist Ralph Brown to 
local law enforcement officers last week at 

Brown was sent from the central branch of the 
FBI in Washington, D.C. to train area law 
enforcement officers in the latest techniques in 
fingerprinting and to introduce the concept of 
mass disaster teams. 

"Mass disaster teams," said Brown, "are 
composed of 45 to 50 qualified identification 
experts. Each team is broken down into squads 
of five to six people. The Guyana tragedy in 
which hundreds of Americans were killed was 
one of the first tragedies in which this concept 
was put to use." 

The latest fingerprinting techniques 
demonstrated by Brown included the use of 
iodine fumes, magna brushes, and lasers. These 
new developments allow fingerprints to be lifted 
from the human body. The techniques are 
advantageous not only in aiding in mass 
disasters but in identification situations with 
local law enforcement agencies on a nationwide

Nursing instructor 
Files grievance 

By Cynthia Volsin 
Staff Writer 

PBJC nursing instructor Pat 
Metts-Lewts filed a grievance 
over increased class size on 
Sept. 30. Because of additional 
beginning nursing students, 
papers that must be corrected 
have multiplied and class 
preparation time has length- 
ened, she said. 

In the grievance, Metts-Lewis 
requested that her workday 
and workweek be the same as 
last year. 

"Up until now we've always 
had 20 students per instructor 
because we have two days a 
week that we take students 
into the hospital. We each 
can only take 10 to 12 in at a 
time, per the State Board of 

Nursing," she said. "I would 
like PBJC to honor the 
student-teacher ratio that they 
have always had." 

There are now two classes of 
40 students per class with 
three full-time teachers in- 
stead of four. An additional 
instructor has been hired, but 
she works only 80 percent of 
the regular schedule and is not 
responsible for classroom 
teaching, Metts-Lewis said. 

Her complaint comes during 
a deadlock on contract 
negotiations between the 
administration and teacher's 

Observing proper channels, 
Metts-Lewis filed her griev- 
ance with her supervisor, 
Betty Morgan, who took it to 

PBJC Director of Personnel 
Joseph M. Schneider. 

In a letter to Metts-Lewis 
dated Oct. 2, Schneider said 
because their current collect- 
ive bargaining agreement had 
expired, the grievance/arbi- 
tration procedure was not 
currently in effect, as stated in 
Article XXIX, Section A. 

In the same letter, he 
advised Metts-Lewis to con- 
tact the appropriate union 
representative if she wished to 
pursue the matter at the 
bargaining table. 

Metts-Lewis said she is now 
waiting to act on the advice of 
her legal counsel. 

PBJC President Edward M. 
Elssey declined to comment on 


There will be no day classes on the following dates: Nov. 
11, Veterans Day; and Nov. 27, 28, Thanksgiving holidays. 
In addition there will be no evening classes on Nov. 26. 
Students should consult their instructors in special cases. 

Early Registration for the winter term will be held Nov. 
6-21 for currently enrolled students. Time for registration is 
9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for day students and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for 
night students. 

Winter graduates will register on Nov. 6. During the next 
days through Nov. 21, day students will register according 
to total semester hours accumulated including those of 
current enrollment. 

Early registration appointment sheets can be found in the 
Student Activity Center and on the bulletin board between 
the health and financial aid offices. 

On. Oct. 23, Jennifer Hendrickson officially resigned as 
secretary of the Student Government Association. "In an 
effort to set my priorities on school work and other factors 
concerning school, I have decided to devote more time to 
classes and study," she said. 

Replacing Hendrickson as executive secretary is Sen. 
Shelly Meyer. Meyer has been very active working on 
various projects in the senate and will start her secretary 

duties this week. 

President Mondale? Don't be surprised 

Chief Copy/News Editor 

President Jimmy Carter will defeat Republican challenger 
Ronald Reagan tomorrow to earn a second term in the highest 
office in the land. Why such optimism? Does the Beachcomber 
know something the rest of the country doesn't? 

It's very simple. Democrat Jimmy Carter will win tomorrow 
because the Philadelphia Phillies of the National League 
defeated the Kansas City Royals of the American League in the 
1980 World Series. Confused? Don't be. 

Since 1952 when the Yankees beat the Dodgers and 
Eisenhower beat Stevenson, election year wins by American 
League teams have coincided with Republican victories and 
National League wins have coincided with Democrat victories. 

This interesting bit of trivia was dug up by George L. 
Giassmuch, a political science professor at the University of 
Michigan, and if the trend continues, it's Jimmy for four more 

For the record, it was Ike and the Yankees again in 1956. In 
1960, John F. Kennedy and the Pittsburgh Pirates were 
successful. St. Louis and Lyndon Johnson came out on top in 
1964. Richard Nixon and the Detroit Tigers ruled the land in 
1968. Tricky Dick' returned in 1972, teaming with the Oakland 
A's. Four years ago it was, of course, Carter and the Cincinnati 

Not scientific, you say. Well here's another strange fact 
linking in the shadows of the 1980 election. Since 1860, and 
continuing every 20 years through 1960, the winning candidate 
has died in office. And in every other 20 year period, Lincoln 
(1860), McKmley (1900), and Roosevelt (1940) the men were in 
at least their second term at the time. President Mondale? 
Don't be surprised. 

Back in September, President Carter is presented a "George Brett for President" bumper 
sticker while campaigning in Kansas City. Lucidly for Jimmy, the Royals lost the world series to

Carter better qualified than Reagan ... 

No need for an actor in the White House 

After tomorrow, the spec- 
ulation will be over and the 
American people will know 
who is their new president. 
Whether that will be Jimmy 
Carter or Ronald Reagan no 
one knows, the polls being as 
close as they are and the 
percentage of undecided 
voters so high. 

But do either Carter or 
Reagan deserve the presiden- 
cy? Chances are that neither 
would be on one's list of ideal 
presidential candidates. We 
the voters must choose the 
lesser of two evils in a former 
peanut farmer and a washed- 
up actor. 

Carter defeated Gerald Ford 
for the presidency in 1976 
when he really had no 
business doing so. Coming out 
of nowhere and running a 
near-flawless campaign, the 
Georgian seemed to be just 
what our country needed — a 
hard working, down-to-earth 
and honest individual who 
promised not to lie to us. Yet 
he has stumbled through his 
four years in office and tells us 
he has learned from his 
mistakes and will not repeat 

"Vote Republican, For a 
Change" and "The Time is 
Now For Reagan" are two 
main Republican campaign 
slogans. While it is apparent 
that we need some change, is 
Reagan really a better choice 
than Carter? No. 

Ronald Reagan has been 
unsuccessfully running for 
president since 1964 when he 

was 53 years old. He is now 
69. If he were to serve two 
terms as president he would 
be 77 in 1988. While his age in 
itself is not a factor against 
him, Reagan does not appear 
to be an entirely "clear-head- 
ed" individual. 

He forgets statements he 
made in the past, he stutters 
through his speeches, tells 

ethmcjokes tor all the world to 
hear and basically seems to 
leap before he looks. 

Four years as president look 
to have aged Carter ten years. 
Imagine what Reagan would 
look like after serving a term 
in office. 

The League of Women 
Voters' debate last week was 
little more than a good 

sedative, with both Carter and 
Reagan giving evading ans- 
wers to the same questions. 
The nationwide consensus was 
that Reagan was more 
impressive, but that is, if you 
will excuse the expression, 

Reagan was rude, openly 
laughing at Carter, pointing at 
him, and submitting the 

president to such wondrous 
one-lmers as "There you go 
again" and "Barbara (Wal- 
ters), you have asked that 
question twice, and I think you 
deserve at least one answer to 
it." If this is a preiequisite for 
a good president then maybe 
Don Rickles and Rodney 
Dangerfield should run. 

If it sounds like we are 
endorsing Jimmy Carter, then 
so be it. It is the consensus 
here that keeping Ronald 
Reagan out of the White 
House is most important, and 
Carter has the support to do 
this when Anderson, Ciark 
and Commoner do not. 

Carter has not been a great 
president, and probably never 
will be. But he is less likely to 
push us into war than Reagan, 
and the next war could very 
well be the last. 

We feel that a one- term 
governor of Georgia and 
one-term president is more 
qualified for the presidency 
than a two-term governor of 
California with no presidential 
experience. Carter has learned 
in the past four years that one 
cannot be governor of the 
United States, and this 
country will be better off if 
Reagan does not have to learn 
the same. 

When you vote tomorrow, 
remember that a vote for 
anyone but Carter is a vote for 
Reagan. ■- < 

And if you are still set on' 
electing a Republican presi- 
dent, remember what hap- 
pened with the last one. 

Last minute politicking — The 
Rush to release the hostages 

_ 9kf 


Editors Note: The following 
letter was received by Political 
Union Adviser Ed Pugh on 
Oct. 27, almost one week after 
Carter's supposed appearance 

Dear Professor Pugh: 

Thank you for your recent 
invitation to President Carter 
to participate in your forth- 
coming plans. 

Your offer will remain under 

Does the latest in a series of statements by 
the Ayatollah Khomeini foil what may have 
been politically motivated attempts on the part 
of the Carter administration to win release of the 
hostages in Iran? 

Khomeini expressed concern one week ago 
that an early release of the captives might 
benefit either Jimmy Carter or Ronald Reagan. 

We ourselves wondered about the "rush" 
that suddenly came about to bring about a 
successful end to the 364 day old crisis. 

Quite honestly it seemed to us then as it still 
does now that someone in Washington was 
trying to squeeze in some last minute election 
year politicking. 

Our beliefs were strengthened by the 
immediate release of prisoners who had been 
held captive m Cuban prisons for almost 15 

Ever since Jimmy Carter's performance in 
office has dropped in public opinion polls, it is 

quite possible that he has been desperate to 
achieve a monumental act of heroism that would 
return him to the Oval Office for another try at 
the presidency. 

Had the hostages been released, would it in 
fact have helped Carter or would it have insured 
a Reagan victory tomorrow ? 

We feel that if anything, the latter would have 

We contend that the American people are not 
as unaware or uninformed as Washington has 
often believed. 

Had the rescue mission to get the hostages 
out of Iran been a success, President Cartel 
would have probably gone on record as a 20th 
century hero. However, the circumstances as 
they stand now present an entirely different 

We feel that if anyone is going to pull off any 
last minute victories it should be done with only 
one thing in mind — honesty is always the best 

consideration as the Presi- 
dent's furture travel plans are 
developed. At this time, 
however, we are unable to 
make a commitment on his 


Should the opportunity arise 
when we might be able to 

accept, we will contact you 
With the President's best

Forum seeks answers 
To PB County's problems 

By Kim Davis 
Staff Writer 

The first of two public forums entitled 
"Community Development for the 1980' s" was 
held at Palm Beach Junior College on 
Wednesday, Oct. 29. 

Identifying the major economic and social 
problems facing Palm Beach County today was 
the goal of the first forum. 

The forums are based on a concept introduced 
by Dr. Edmund J. Gleazer, Jr., president of the 
American Association of Community and Junior 
Colleges. The main idea of the concept is to 
involve community colleges in developing goals 
for a community, identifying community 
problems, and working toward a solution to the 

Keynote speakers at the first forum were Joan 
Heggen.secretary of the Florida department of 
Community Affairs, and Steven Albee, director 
of the division of economic development of the 
Florida Department of Commerce. 

Heggen summarized the three main problem 
areas in her opening speech to the forum. The 
first area concerns physical problems of the 
community such as housing, streets, schools, 
and environment. Special needs such as crime, 
alcoholism, and social problems make up the 
second area. The third area consists of economic 
problems of the community such as taxes, 
unemployment, and local government. 

The second forum, to be held on Wednesday, 
Nov. 12, will seek to further define problems 
already identified and develop working 
strategies and solutions.

Dr. Kam instills awareness

Known to all as Dr. Kam, he

As in this country, elections 
are held every four years in 
Thailand, with the voting age 
set at 21. The Thai 
government is patterned after 
that of England. The king and 
queen are titular figureheads; 
the power lies with the prime 
minister, the equivalent of our 

"When I first came to 
America, the thing that 
impressed me the most was 
the freedom here. If an 
individual criticized the mayor 
of the city or any government 
official in Thailand he would 

risk being killed or put in jail. 
Here, we have freedom of 
speech and freedom of the 
press," he said. 

University life in Thailand 
begins with a college entrance 
exam. The number of students 
accepted at universities is 
strictly limited each year, so 
the applicants with the best 
exam scores get their first 
preference of a major. 

Although tuition is exorbi- 
tant, there are as many women 
in college as men. Dr. Kam 
remarked, "Women in Thai- 
land are smarter than men. 
They are better students but 
they are not free. By that I 
mean that they don't have the 
freedom to go to parties nor to 
drink or smoke in public. They 
study harder because they 
have more time to study. ' '

ByBobCusano and Robin Aurelius 

"We want your blood" seems to be a rather unusual request 
directed to students, but that is what happened at PBJC North 
on Oct. 17 when the Palm Beach Bloodmobile was stationed 

"Percentagewise, the blood drive was very successful," said 
Pat Moore, a student assistant at the north campus. "There was 
a really good turnout all day and even after they closed the 
bloodmobile down, they still had people willing to donate. ' ' 

There was a total of 69 perspective donors but only 52 actually 
were accepted. "They probably could have gotten a lot more 
people to donate if it did not take so long to process each blood 
sample," Moore said. "One of the bloodmobile employees was 
ill, making them shorthanded and that slowed them down even

and dull. 

Side one of the album boasts 
originality, wit and some fine 
lyrics. "Don't Stand So Close 
to Me' ' is an interesting tale ot 
a student-teacher relationship, 
and "Driven To Tears" may 
contain the best lyrics The 
Police have ever written. 

Lead singer/bassist Sting 
sings "Seems that when some 
innocent die, all we can offer 
them is some page in a 
magazine, too many cameras 
and not enough food, this is 
what we've seen." The 
group's world tour earlier this 
year, in which they played 
many dates in underdeveloped 
countries, seems to have been 
an inspiration. 

On "When the World is 
Running Down, You Make the 
Best of What's Still Around" 
The Police conquer funk, and 
"Canary in a Coalmine" 
shows strong reggae influen- 
ces. Guitarist Andy Summers 
holds rhythm chords through 
both tunes, drowisly strum- 
ming on the former and 
chopping quickly on the latter. 

The almost entirely instru- 

mental "Voices in my Head" 
is influenced by both reggae 
and funk. Sting and drummer 
Stewart Copeland engage in 
bass-drum exchanges, Cope- 
land" getting the best of it and 
leading into a politically-influ- 
enced "Bombs Away" ("un- 
paid ! is, Afghanistan hills' '). 

Side two does not fare 
nearly as well. The Police 
sometimes go for simplicity, 
but "De Do Do Do, De Da Da 
Da" is slightly ridiculous. So 
is the instrumental "Behind 
My Camel, " which sounds like 
a reject from the "Midnight 
Express" soundtrack. 

"Man in a Suitcase" is 
more promising, describing 
the tribulations of constant 
touring, but it's back to basics 
on "Shadows in the Rain". 
Very basic, slow reggae, far 
too long and monotonous. 

"The Other Way of 
Stopping," an instrumental, 
saves the side from near-total 
failure. Sting and Andy 
Summers synchronize their 
bass and guitar runs while 
Stewart Copeland hits every 
drum in sight and then some. 

"Zenyatta Mondatta" is 
probably the worst album by 
The Police, but the previous 
two ("Outlandos d 'Amour" 
and "Reggatta de Blanc") 
were both very strong. A few 
better placed tracks would 
have made this one just as 

The Police helped create the 
new wave-reggae-rock cross- 
over sound (along with Joe 
Jackson) and are likely to 
remain a top world attraction 
for quite some time because of 
that originality. They have a 
torrid rhythm section in Sting 
and Stewart Copeland who 
play lead parts as often as 
guitarist Andy Summers - 
much different from guitar- 
dominated mainstream rock. 

Production (by The Police 
and Nigel Gray) is very good 
and best tracks include 
"Bombs Away", "The Other 
Way of Stopping;," "When 
the World is Running Down, 
You Make the Best of What's 
Still Around" and "Driven To 
Tears". Album rated 7.

The ocean, like a person 

Crosses and recrosses 

The answers and questions 


It dares to come to your feet 

And get you wet with delight. 

When it does come. ..clear and racing... 

It shocks and surprises... 

To no end. 

First cold as steel and just as forbidding, 

Soon recognized and enjoyed by all. 

Enjoy children! ! It's perfect. 

For you understand nothing of heartache and 


It doesn't want to know of childs games. . . . 
Only mind games of great intellect and 
So pretty it is. 

Even when rough and coarse. 
So dangerous... 
If too much is understood 
It swallows you whole 
Deep into the earth 
Where no one can hear 
Your discovery, 
Your answers, 
Your madness. 

Pretty poison of understanding.

Celebrity voting 

ByMichele Kurteff 

Besides making movies and touring the talkshow circuit 
celebrities are busy endorsing presidential candidates for 
tomorrow's election. 

This weeks issue of Time magazine highlights what VIP's 
across the country think about the contenders for the chief 
executive position. 

Black activist Rev. Jesse Jackson expressed his views stating, 
"Mr. Reagan's approach to foreign policy is that of a macho man, 
And John Anderson is a vacuum cleaner to suck up the frustrated, 
the purist and the self-righteous. ' ' 

Another democratic supporter, Goldie Hawn, shared her 
opinion during an interview. A deafening overhead roar 
interrupted the conversation. The noise was identified as a B-S2. 
"Oh, did Ronald Reagan already get in? I'm supporting Carter 
because I don't want to die. " 

Reagan fan Leon Jaworski, former Watergate special 
prosecutor explained his choice, "I would rather have a 
competent extremist than an incompetent moderate." 

"Carter is incompetent, arrogant, insulated, provincial and 
unknowing. He is a pious fraud. The pietistic humbug is 
intolerable, ' ' stressed television producer David Susskind. 

One John Anderson backer still thinks his candidate is in the 
ballgame. Novelist Kurt Vonnegut Jr. replied, "He (Anderson) 
hasn' t insulted the intelligence of the American people. ' ' 

And what of the liberals? Actress Raquel Welch hasn't 
forgotten them. It's got down to a choice between the one with the 
fat lips and the one with no lips, so I'm voting libertarian. ' ' 

The smartest one of all is entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. who 
quipped, ' 'the only thing I'm endorsing this year are checks."

that makes the difference in a person's life. So much argument 
and fussing has been made over the length of hair and so little 
emphasis has been put on the depth of love in the life. Let God 
speak for Himself on the real issue. 

' ' I may be able to speak the languages of men 
and even of angels, 
If I have no love, 
My speech is no more than a noisy gong 

or a clanging bell.

I may have all knowledge

I may have all the faith

—from the Good News Bible. 
1 Corinthians 13:1,2. 

When Africans first heard 
the radio, they called it 
"talking air." African Christ- 
ians prayed for 20 years that a 
"talking air machine" would 
come to their land. They saw a 
hopeless task of reaching more 
than 200 million Africans who 
spoke about 1500 different 
languages with the good news 
of God's love in Jesus. 
Trans World Radio now 

beams messages on hope, love 
and comfort for daily living to 
those people. In addition, 
TWR reaches into Southeast 
Asia and China. 

TWR bought a ranch "25 
miles from nowhere," built 
roads (open to all), cleared 
land, raised a water tower and 
finally the buildings and 
towers for radio transmission. 
Africans learned many skills 
and continue to get instruction 
on ways and means to improve 

their way of life from TWR and 

Men and women from all 
over Africa work together to 
present helpful programs in 
family living, agriculture and 
economics, news and govern- 
ment affairs. Christian groups 
from all Africa come to share 
their music and knowledge of 
God's love in life today. 

All of this came in answer to 
the instructions of Swazi's first 
king in the middle 1800's. 
King Somhlolo claimed faith 
from a vision in which he saw 
white men coming with good 
news from God — ' 'unkulun- 

kulu," in Swazi. He told his 
son (who would succeed him) 
and his subjects to obey God's 
message of love and hope. 

In the Long Search film 
series, the question is asked 
during the information about 
African "religions," "Will 
-African Christians one day • 
restore Christianity to United 
States?" Interesting. How 
about responding to Africa's 
call to help educate the many 
communities who have heard 
the good news and want to 
learn how to share it.

Everyone must obey state authorities, because no authority exists without God's permission, and 
the existing authorities have been put there by God. Whoever opposes the existing authority 
opposes what God has ordered; and anyone who does so will bring judgment on himself. For rulers 
are not to be feared by those who do good, but by those who do evil. Would you like to be unafraid of 
the man in authority? Then do what is good, and he will praise you, because he is God's servant 
working for your own good. But if you do evil, then be afraid of him, because his power to punish is 
real. He is God's servant and carries out God's punishment on those who do evil. For this reason 
you must obey the authorities - not just because of God's punishment, but also as a matter of 

That is also why you pay taxes, because the authorities are working for God when they fulfill their 
duties. Pay, then, what you owe them; pay them your personal and property taxes, and show 
respect and honor for them all. 

Romans 13:1-7 Good News Bible 

For the sake ot the Lord suomit youselves to every human authority: to the emperor, who is the 
supreme authority, and to the governors, who have been appointed by him to punish the evildoers 
and to praise those who do good. For God wants you to silence the ignorant talk of foolish people by 
the good things you do. Live as free people; do not, however, use your freedom to cover up any evil, 
but live as God's slaves. Respect everyone, love your fellow believers, have reverence for God, and 
respect the emperor. IPeter 2: 13-17 Good News Bible 

Remind your people to submit to rulers and authorities, to obey them, and to be ready to do good 
in every way. Tell them not to speak evil of anyone, but to be peaceful and friendly, and always to 
show a gentle attitude toward everyone. 

For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, and wrong. We were slaves to passions and 
pleasures of all kinds. We spent our lives in malice and envy; others hated us and we hated them.

Basketball set to open season tonight 

.Many problems confronting Pacer squad 

By Ross Sanders 



The PBJC Pacers open their 
1980 basketball season tonight 
against Palm Beach Atlantic at 
the PBJC gym. Coach Joe 
Ceravolo's team has been 
practicing hard in getting 
prepared for the Sailfish. 

Point guard Dennis Graham 
was asked his feelings about 
the upcoming season. "We 
started off (preparing for the 
season) slow, but we are much 
better now." When asked 
about the sudden departure of 
Paul Matton, Ernie Morris and 
Jeff Washington from the 
squad due to various problems 
Dennis said, "We have good 
replacements in Kerry Worth- 
am, John Braswell, Chuck 
Pauldo, and Stafford Everett. 
We will still be strong because 
we want to win". 

Everett, a freshman guard 
said, "Adapting from Paho- 
kee's style of play to Coach 
Ceravolo's is hard but I'm 
learning to deal with it and 
make use of it. If everyone 
cooperates we'll be alright 
because everyone wants to 

Ceravalo is showing signs 
of worry over the problems 
confronting the team. "We 
have reached some kind of 
plateau, but it is far from the 
top of the mountain. We 
surely aren't at the point I 
wanted to be at this stage of 
the season. All we can hope 
for is some kind of change 
before the season opener. ' ' 

Some of the problems facing 
the team are the unhappiness 
of the players toward 
scholarships. Players have 
walked out of practice due to 
promises that were not kept. 

1978 scoring leader Ernie 
Morris has left the team due to 
lack of interest. Morris had 
been a big part of Ceravalo' s 

As in years before, the 
basketball team must face the 
problem of losing players due 
to academic ineligibility. 
Ceravolo is hoping that 
academic problems will not 
affect this year's team, as 
there are already many 
obstacles standing in the way

Beachcomber Bombs 
Orange Crush 19- 

By Steve Beverly 
Staff Writer 

On Wednesday, Oct. 29, the 
Orange Crush was shocked by 
a determined and organized 
Beachcomber Bomber intra- 
mural football team. After the 
Orange Crush won the toss of 
the coin, the rest of the game 
went downhill as they lost 
19-0 in the championship 

A 30-yard run by James 
Walker started the drive in 
which the Bombers scored 
their first touchdown on a pass 
from Walker to Jose Rodri- 
guez. The extra point attempt 
failed. Scott Greenberg inter- 
cepted a pass on the next 
series of plays, but the half 
expired with a 6-0 advantage 
in favor of the Bombers. 

Coming back from the half 

the Beachcomber captain 
Mark Dreps made a key 
interception and ran it back to 
the Crush 10-yard line. The 
interception set up another 
Walker to Rodriguez touch- 
down pass. The extra point 
was good on a pass to Scott 

Later, a 30-yard run by 
James Walker was called back 
because of a penalty. On the 
very next play, Walker ran the 
same pattern and gained the 
30 yards back. A pass from 
Walker to Phil Callea brought 
the Bombers within two yards 
of the goal line. Walker then 
ran it for a quick six points. 

"A tribute to the Beach- 
comber Bombers on a well 
played game. Their team was 
well organized from quarter- 
back James Walker to 

stumbling captain Mark 
Dreps," John R. Williams of 
the Orange Crush said. "My 
hat goes off to them and the 
rest of the Beachcomber 
squad. They played well and 
deserved to win. Ernie Morris 
and Ralph Ballestero did a 
good job officiating the game. 
Overall, it was a good, clean, 
fun championship intramural 

Dreps, the captain of the 
Bombers, said, "Everybody 
displayed 100 percent of the 
talent each member had. At 
the beginning of the season we 
were kind of rusty. As the 
season neared the end, we got 
our team together. I feel if we 
had to go through another 
season we would remain,

Depleted Pacers face rematch 
with Palm Beach Atlantic 


Chief Copy/News Editor 

First veteran guard Ernie Morris, PBJC's. 
leading scorer in 1978-79, quit school to go back' 
to his home in Yonkers, N.Y. Then sophomore 
center Jeff Washington, recovering slowly from 
an appendectomy, left the team to return to his 
native St. Louis. Then 6-7 center Paul Matron 
dropped out and plans to get married. Then 
sharpshooter Stafford Everett of Pahokee, and 
6-1 Kerry Wortham of Wisconsin, both transfer 
students, were declared temporarily ineligible 
due to " unclear* ' transcripts . 

As a result, Palm Beach Junior College 
basketball coach Joe Ceravolo has had his 
12-man team reduced to seven and must face a 
spunky Palm Beach Atlantic team in a return 

engagement tonight at the Pacer Gym. 

"Palm Beach Atlantic is" a good opponent, 
and they are a four year school. With one game 
under our belt we hope the result will be the 
same as last week." Last week's result was a 
76-74 overtime win for PBJC Wednesday night 
which featured more mistakes than either coach 
would like to remember. Also sitting out the 
Nov. 5 game was starting guard Dennis 
Graham, who returned home to New York for 
family reasons. 

Graham will return tonight to team with 
Barlow Hopspn, a freshman Teaper from 
Pahokee. While Everett and Wortham get their 
transcript troubles straightened out, sophomore 
Jim Castle steps in as the third guard. Hopson 
scored 20 and Castle 6 in last week's victory 
continued on page 3 

Coach Joe Cervolo, 
his team depleted 
by transcript troub- 
les and player 
resignations, leads 
the Pacers against 
Palm Beach Atlantic 
in a rematch tonight 
at the PBJC Gym-

Sly Fox 'frantically funny' 

By BUI Meredith 

The Palm Beach Junior 
College Players will present 
"Sly Fox", an adaptation of 
the Ben Jonson play "Vol- 
pone", this coming weekend, 
Nov. 14, 15 and 16 at 8:14 p.m. ; 
and on Nov. 16 at 2:30 p.m. in 
the PBJC Auditorium. 

Jonson wrote the original 
play in 1606, and it became 
one of the biggest hits of its 
day. "Sly Fox" is the 
adaptation by Larry Gelbart of 
the English classic. 

The setting is the bedroom 
of Foxwell J. Sly in San 
Francisco during the Gold 

Rush days. Sly pretends to be 
on his deathbed to convince a 
wealthy, greedy man to give 
him valuable presents, in 
return for making each one his 
"sole" heir. 

"Sly Fox" is directed by 
Frank Leahy and also features 
the talents of outstanding 
student directors and actors. 

Tickets are S4 for adults and 
$2 for students. For further 
ticket information phone the 
box office at 439-8141 between 
9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on 

Watson B. Duncan III 
describes the production as a 
"frantically funny bonanza. 

that pokes hilarious holes in 
human foibles. Hysteria 
reigns supreme in this play. 
Students will love it ! "

Fox" in next week's Beach-

Ronnie Ray Gun until 1984? 


Reagan's time 
is now 

It's often been said about 
those discharged from major 
corporations that ' 'We're sure 
he handled his work conscien- 
tiously and was basically a 
good person, but that just 
doesn't cut it here." 

This is what U.S. voters 
seemed to be telling their 
president as they voted on 
Nov. 4. 

They were simply fed up 
with the ineptness and lack of 
accomplishment that seems to 
have highlighted the Carter 
administration the past four 
years. Voters are like 
management- they only care 
about results. 

America has never been 
receptive to the idea of giving 
a president who has had a 
difficult time during the first 
term another try at the 

One of the decisive factors 
in the election that gave 
Ronald Reagan a landslide 
victory was Carter's handling 
of the hostage crisis. 

Many people felt this issue 
to be an important determin- 
ent in their choice for 
president Tuesday. 

What proved to be the final 
blow for the President was the 
total abandonment on the part 
of minorities and blue-collar 
workers at the polls. For 
years, they had been the 
underlying strength of the 
Democratic Party. 

Jimmy Carter's showing in 
last minute popularity polls 

among minorities was the 
poorest on record since that of 
George McGovern in 1972. 

If everyone lias grown tired 
ot the administration that 
leaves us on Jan. 20, little 
blame can be placed on those 
who made their choice on 
election day. 

There is such a thing, 
however, as running to what 
looks like the best alternative 
or what appears to be 
reasonable or even-tempered 
solution to the problem. 

We feel that changes in the 
nation's political structure 
should not come about as a 
result of concern over an 
individual's needs but rather 
the needs of the nation as a 

Somehow, perhaps unex- 
plicably, we sense that the 
shareholders fired the chair- 
man of the board with a 
certain degree of haste. 

An endorsement infers 
a publications' political 
preference, it does not 
predict a winner. We 
endorsed Jirnnry Carter 
not as a great candidate, 
but as the lesser of two 

President Reagan. Has a sort of ring to it, 
doesn't it? Whether that is a strong, unified ring 
or an unpredictable and harrowing ring is for 
you to decide. 

We have made our decision, and it should not 
surprise you to hear that we are shocked and 
scared. Shocked not so much because Reagan' 
won, but how he won. The popular vote was not 
a landslide, but the electoral vote margin was 
close to 400! 

And scared because Reagan is indeed 
unpredictable. The American people elected 
Ronald Reagan not on his own strengths but on 
Jimmy Carter's weaknesses. They felt it was 
time for a change, and they most certainly will 
get one. 

NBG, the first network to predict the Reagan 
victory, said that the main factor leading to his 
victory was the slumping economy under the 
Carter administration. This is true, but that 
makes the pieces fit together all too well now. A 
war is the most effective way to a more stable 

And why not a war? It would make Reagan 
look like a strong leader, would lessen the 
American economic burden and would lessen 
our population problem by ridding Reagan of 
some of his chief critics, the 18 to 24-year-olds. 

What is the status of the hostages in Iran 
now? It is no secret that the Ayatollah Khomeini 
preferred Carter to Reagan. The situation that 
seemed to be at the brink of breakthrough may 
now be back at its initial stages. Again, 

There will have to be some changes in Reagan 
if our country is to feel at all secure. Any ethnic 
(or maybe nationality) jokes will no longer come 
from a presidential candidate but from the 
President of the United States. If Reagan makes 
a statement and says later that he never said it, 
chances are that it will be on tape and he will be 
proven wrong. The country does not (and the 


Republicans certainly do not) need another 
president who is a proven liar. 

Reagan's TV appearances as president are 
likely to look much different from those filmed 
during his campaign. Except for the debates, try 
to think of one time in the pa'st year you saw 
Reagan on TV for more than about 30 seconds . 

It was a shrewd and effective Reagan 
television campaign. The candidate was never 
on camera long enough to get overly confused or 
say "duh". As president, Reagan will be on 
camera much more often, for longer periods of 
time, and in even more candid situations. He 
may still look comfortable in front of a lens , but 
he is not likely to look like a great speaker 

Of course, if the 20-year presidential jinx 
holds up then Reagan will not be our president 
for four years and we will have to deal with 
George Bush. Records are made to be broken, 
but with Reagan nearing 70, who knows? ll 
wouldn't be a total surprise. 

This is not to say we hope it happens, for we 
don't. We just feel that Ronald Reagan is not 
the ideal man to lead this country in 1980. If he 
helps boost our economy, we will be the first to 
applaud him, but if he does it through war we 
will condemn him. 

If he helps our senior citizens (he prorSably 
will since he is one) then we applaud him , but 
not if he takes away from our already dissolving 
middle class or our country's youth. It works 
both ways. 

To give to one is to take from another. 
Reagan has a great deal to learn in the White 
House, and he will learn it. We just hope it will 
not be the hard way or at our country's expense. 

In 1984, regardless of who is president, ask 
youiself the same question that Ronald Reagaft 
asked you this year. Are you better off than yofl 
were four years ago? Are you happier now? The 
answers are likely to be the same. * -► 




Letter to the Editor: 

As you know, a big problem 
at PBJC is apathy. Attendance 
at planned activities is very 
poor to say the least. This may 
be due to a lack of interest, or 
perhaps we must assess the 
activities being held for 
students.Could it be that one of 
the -answers, to the problem of 
apathy lies in a change of the 
type of activities' we have? I 
feel this may be a positive 

In an effort to get a better 
Cross section of student's 
ideas, I have contacted the 
various clubs around campus 
informing them of the 
upcoming formation of the 
I.C.C. (Inter Campus Clubs). 
Each club will appoint one 
representative and two alter- 
nates to assure that there will 

always be a member at the 
I.C.C. meeting. Meetings will 
consist of one representative 
from each club or organization 
on campus. 

The first meeting will be 
held on Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 2 
p.m. All representatives and 
alternates from campus clubs 
and organizations should 
attend. The meeting will be 
held in the back of the

re:Slimcomber Insert 
Dear Sirs, 

We were thrilled and 
delighted with the lively 
addition to the student 

newspaper. Furthermore, the 
name change for the school 
has lost no fans, and has 
probably gained new converts 
by a "slim" margin. 

We, however, did llot 
appreciate the suggestion' that 
Rose Marie is gay.A friend f 
ours is married to Rose Marie 
and was highly insulted, as 
were we all. 

Previously, we felt that the 
paper should have been soft er 
and perforated at giv en 
intervals (ie*. facial quality) 
Not so now. 

hi closing, we would like t 
invite the staff to "come ai^j 
sit by our side, we will let yo u 
Do not hasten to bid u '

PBJC accepted thiee rec-

Art on display 

The work of artist Barbara Wasserman will be on display in 
the Palm Beach Junior College Humanities Building Gallery 
through Nov. 28. Her paintings can be found in the collections 
of such notables as Mexican President Lopez Portillo, singer 
Vikki Carr and Mad Magazine illustrator Sergio Aragones. 

Wasserman's works hang- in five of Mexico's top galleries, 
including the internationally known Museum of Bellas Artes in 
Mexico City, where she lived for 1-8 years. 

Wasserman received a B.S. in Art Education from Hofstra 
University, and a Master's Degree in Art Education from New 
York University. 

At present, she teaches at the Boca Raton Art Center and the 
Lake Worth Art League. Her work is shown in galleries 
throughout the country. 

Wasserman has won the Grumbacher Award; National 
Academy of Design, an award from the New York City 
Association of Women Artists; and the Perkins Baily Memorial 
Award at the Norton Gallery.

Palm Beach Gardens. 

The top five artists will be 
awarded prizes for first

$250, $125, $50, $25 respect- 

The contest will be held in 
two stages. The first calls for 
artists to submit designs on 
two pieces of poster board 
each 6-by-12 inches. They

reduced the number of issues

Administration negotiator 
Jesse Hogg said the moves 
showed the desire of the

over the Sailfish. Top recruit 
John Braswell, a natural 
center at 6-6, has become the 
number one pivotman with 6-4 
Elvis Harvey the backup. 

Expected to lead the team 
with his experience and 
strength at power forward is 
sophomore Luis Fuentes, 
(6-6) Wednesday's high 
scorer with 27. Other than the 
loss of depth, the other major 
effect of the loss of the 
aforementioned players on the 
team is 6-3 swingman Chuck 
Pauldo moving in to play 

The result is a much smaller 
and inexperienced squad than 
anticipated before the season 
started. They will try to make 
up for this shortage with 
determination and speed. 
"We are smaller than we'd 
like to be, but the talent is 
there and if it comes together,

Once upon an election Tuesday, while 

I wondered who to choose today. 
While I was in hibernation, thinking in 

deep meditation. 
Trying to answer myself the question, 
who should win the Presidential 
Wondering who and nothing 

Ah. distinctly I remember It was on the 
•fourth, November, 
I was sleeping in a slumber softly 

snoring sawing lumber. 
When a sun of bright orange umber 

woke ma from my humble slumber 
Today I had my quadrennial chore, 

importance of which < needn't 

implore, to vote for our President, 

no more. 

Vote today and nothing more. 

Pondering choices, nearly choking, 
while my stomach felt like bloating, 
i know I should be voting, voting down 
at city hall, 
'tis a ballot I must write on, 
junta name I must decide on. 
Only this and nothing more. 

The Reagan 

Still debating who to vote for, not 

desiring for an encore, 
of the last white house sophomore, of 

who's weakness I deplore. 
The other choice he seemed much 

wiser, better, safer. 
Soon my mind began to transfer, 

detour from that Georgia amateur, 

to that other Governor 
I thoughtof that California senor, 
' though of him and nothing more 

In mv kitchen I was reading, eating, 

when I heard a gentle ringing, 

tingling. , 

I thought this must be the clinking of 

the spoon against mv bowl, 
or maybe fust ice tinkling in 

the orange juice glass I hold 
So t held myself so steady and 

for listening I was ready, 
Again I heerd It yes indeedy, 'twas mv 

'twas mv bell bell bell, on mv bell we 
will not dwell 

So I went to open door, open door 
and nothing more, 

Open here I flung the door, flung It 

wide so outside to explore. 
In then stepped the stately Reagan, 

yes the saintly Governor. 
After the ususl hand shaking, no real 

comment was he making, so I could 

not pass up taking, taking time to 

play inquisitor. 

To ask questions and nothing 

Then without hesitation, prognosti- 
cation or procrastination. 

I asked the winner of the nomination if 
he did win the election, 
what he planned for our nation? 

Would there be rise In taxation? 

Would we be run by corporations? 

What to do about inflation? 

These he answered with elation, 
and with great elaboration, 
with no blatant complication, 
needing no interpretation. 

One more question i must mention. 
Can we llva without destruction, 
can we have cohabitation with our 
friendly comrade Russians? 

This one question I Implore, 
will we ever more have war? 

Quoth the Reegan, Nevermore.

Cheap Trick shakes up latest LP 

Crisis Line works 

By Bill Meredith 

"All Shook Up" is an 
appropriate title for Cheap 
Trick's sixth album , consider- 
ing their present situation and 
that of rock V roll in general. 
Many top British ana 
American bands have lost one 
or more members over the 
past two years, either by death 
or refurbishment, and Cheap 
Trick is now in that category. 
Original bassist Tom Peter- 
sson quit the group by 
"mutual agreement" on Aug. 
26. He was replaced by 
bassist, guitarist and keyboard 
player Pete Comita. 

Just as you would expect, 
the LP contains some 
Beatle-ish material, although 
not much. "Just Got Back" 
and "Can't Stop it but I'm 
Gonna Try" contain respective 
Lennon and McCartney-like 
vocals by Robin Zander, but 
the music is original enough, 
particularly the great drum 
mtroon "Just Got Back" by 

Bun E. Carlos. 

Most of the album's better 
material is free of any Beatles 
comparisons. "Baby Loves to 
Rock" sounds more like The 
Wli« with Zander's stuttered 
phrasing and strong bass and 
guitar solos by Petersson and 
Rick Nielsen. "I Love You 
Honey but I Hate Your 
Friends" is in a Rod Stewart 
mold, with a powerful vocal, 
strong bass, and an effective 
piano break. 

"Who ID King" is jungle 
boogie revisited, or maybe a 
stop in the Tikki-Tikki room at 
Disney World, African/Indian 
tribal drum beats, complete 
with chanting, will entice 
some to dance- and yet others 
to head to the refrigerator for a 

"Love Comes a Tumblin' 
Down" is the LP's most basic 
and best rocker. Carlos plays a 
drum intro, Nielson shows off 
his best guitar solo and Zander 
uses vocal phrases from past 
rock classics. 

"All Shook Up" works and 
rocks because Cheap Trick 
plays it to their strengths - 
Rick Nielsen and Bun E. 
Carlos. Nielsen wrote or 
co-wrote every tune on the 
album, and Carlos introduces 
half the LP's ten tracks and is 
an ever-improving drummer. 

The spontaneity of "All 
Shook Up" is surprising, but 
Cheap Trick has more 
surprises lined up. New 
bassist Comita will also play 
keyborads on stage, as will 
Nielsen and Zander, while 
Carlos will debut what he calls 
his "drum choir" on the U.S. 
tour beginning this month. 

Production (by George 
Martin) is good, and the best 
tracks are "Baby Loves to 
Rock," "High Priest of 
Rhythmic Noise," "Love 
Comes a Tumblin" Down," "I 
Love You Honey But I Hate 
Your Friends," and "Just Got 
Back." Album rated 8 1/2. 


Working your way through 
school, maintaining above 
average grades, and getting 
along with parents and 
siblings are full time jobs 
which requite more effort and

Coping with these situations 
can often be stressful and 
result in depression, anger or

Basketball in the 70's-An exciting decade 

By Jim Hayward 
Chief Copy/News Editor 

J> dfessional basketball has 
long been criticized for its lack 
of excitement, desire by the 
players and appreciation by 
the fans. However, the 
National Basketball Associa- 
tion (NBA) undoubtedly 
houses the greatest basketball 
players in the world today. 

The past decade has 
produced many changes in the 
sport. The addition of eight 
new teams, the absorbtion of 
the American Basketball 
Association, and the three-point 
field goal are just a few. 

In 1969, the Bill Russell era 
ended as the man some call 
the most dominant player of 
his time led the Boston Celtics 
to the NBA Championship, 
their 11th in 13 years. 

The following season, 'the 

team of the 70s , ' the New York 
Knickerbockers swept by the 
Los Angeles Lakers for their 
first title ever Coached by 
Red Holtzman, still coaching 
m 1980, the 1970 Knicks 
included Walt 'Clyde* Frazier, 
Dick Barnett, Dave DeBuss- 
chere, Bill Bradley, and 
league MVP Willis Reed. 

The highlight of 1971 was 
the arrival of the young 
Milwaukee Bucks and their 
talented rookie Lew Alcindor. 
Alcindor won the Series MVP 
and teamed with veteran 
Oscar Robertson to bring the 
title to Brewtown. 

The Lakers gained revenge 
against the Knicks in 1972 as 
imposing Wilt Chamberlain, 
the league's all-time scoring 
leader, dominated the best-of- 
seven series. 

New York came back in 1973 

as an almost crippled Willis 
Reed inspired a four-game 
sweep after dropping the first 
game to Chamberlain, Jerry 
West, and the Lakers. 

A new era in Boston began 
as John Havlicek, the team's 
sixth man during the Russell 
era, and young Dave Cowens 
paved the way for a Celtic win 
over Milwaukee in 1974. 

In 1975, the Golden State 
Warriors, picked for last in 
their division at the start of the 
season, upset everyone on 
their way to the championship 
series. They beat the 
Washington Bullets four 
games to none with Rick Barry 
named MVP of the series. 

In 1976, the tough Celtics 
ran into the surprising 
Phoenix Suns, led by ex-Celtic 
Paul Westphal. After a triple 
overtime fifth game, one of the 

greatest in history, Boston 
clinched the series with a win in 

Bill Walton powered the 
young Portland Trail Blazers 
to the NBA title the next 
season, the high point of his 
injury-riddled career. The 
Blazers overcame Julius 
Ervmg and his band of 
run-and-gun Philadelphia 76- 

Washington and Seattle 
clashed in 1978 and 1979 with 
the Bullets winning the first 
behind veterans Hvin Hayes 
and Wes Unseld. The 
Supersonices gained revenge 
in '79 with their well balanced 
attack of Coach Lenny 

The decade peaked as the 
1979-80 series surpassed all 
expectations. Los Angeles 
with five-time MVP Kareem 

Abdul-Jabbar (formerly Lew 
Alcindor) and rookie of the 
year Earvm 'Magic' Johnson 
overcame a spectacular Phil- 
adelphia team led by Julius 
'Dr J' Erving to win all the 
marbles. It was a fitting end to 
an exciting decade of pro

(Taken from the world's oldest 
piece of literature — Job 28 
verses 12 and 28.) 

Abraham Lincoln: "I believe the Bible 
is the best gift God has ever given to 
man. All the good from the Savior of 
the world iB communicated to us thru 
this book. 

Thomas Huxley: The Bible has been 
the Magna Charts of the poor and 
oppressed. The human race Is not in a 
position to dispense with it." 


One of the most alarming 
disclosures coming out of the 
Communist world, is that of 
the rugged training and 
discipline they are putting 
their youth through. In 
contrast, there has never 
before been such a mass 
pilgrimage to the altar of 
leisure in our country. At the 
end of the rainbow for every 
American is relaxation and 
recreation. The Western world 
loves to play. Americans 
average over 8 hours a day of 
television per household (and 
with an average like that you 
can bet many households 
watch much longer I) 

In the 1920' s inter-collegiate 
debating drew large crowds. 
Now the debates are held in 
side rooms while crowds cheer 
at the basketball game. It 
takes discipline to learn a new 
art, or science, or skill; it takes 
no discipline to watch football 
or a wrestling match. The 
point must be made that the 
shift of excited, popular 
interest from debates to sports 

is a sign of cultural decline. As 
someone once said, "It is 
either discipline or decaden- 

And the Church has not 
excaped. Never has there been 
such an interest in sports 
among "the saints." I've 
heard much more talk and 
excitement about the national 
ratings of college teams 
among Christians in churches 
and Sunday schools, than 
about how to conquer the land 
for God. As an almost 
unvelievable example, I re- 
cently heard about one large 
church in Texas who during 
last year's Superbowl (when 
the Dallas Cowboys were 
playing) feared that the 
Sunday evening service (not to 
mention the offering) would be 
poorly attended. So the pastor 
and elders came up with a 
wonderful ideal They brought 
a large-screen video projection 
system into the sanctuary and 
proceeded to "entertain" the 
parishoners with a nice, 
American, Christian display of 
"knockin* and hittin' 'em for 
Christ!" I wonder who the 

Lord was rooting for? This 
might be a blatant example, 
but the spirit of "fun in the 
Son" is threatening to destroy 
what little hope we have left to 
avoid judgement by having 
true cross-embracing revival. 
' 'For it's time for judgment to 
begin with the household of 
God. . .and if it is with difficulty 
that the righeous is saved, 
what will become of the 
godless men and the sinner?$$ 
(IPet 4:17,18) 

Communist Lenin once said, 
"With a handful of dedicated 
people who will give me their 
lives, I will control the world." 
This must have sounded like 
quite a rash statement to those 
who first heard it, but it did 
not prove an empty boast. In 
1903, this one man, with 17 
followers, began his attack on 
the world. By 1918, the 
number had increased to 
40,000 and with that 40,000 he 
gained control of the 160 
million people of Russia. And 
the movement has gone on 
and now controls over 
one-third of the population of 
the world. With this in mind, 

consider the warning of the 
American President, Theodore 
Roosevelt: "The things that 
will destroy America are 
prosperity at any price, peace 
at any price, safety nrst 
instead of duty first, the love 
of soft living, and the 
get-rich-quick theory of life.

1 980-81 National Hockey League Preview 

Islanders out to capture second cup 

By Ross Sanders 
Sports Editor 

The 1980-81 National Hockey League 
season is a tough one to figure out. 
There are many first class teams to go 
along with many teams that can either 
hit it rich or fall flat on their faces. The 
following predictions for the 1980-81 
NHL season: 

Campbell Conference 

Lester Patrick Division: New York 
Islandes— The 1979 trade for Butch 
Goring from the Los Angeles Kings 
solidified an already superior team. 
With Goring on the Islanders for a 
whole season along with Brian Trottier, 
Clark Gillies, Dennis Potvin, and Mike 
Bossy, a second consecutive Stanley 
Cup won't be hard to come by. Billy 
Smith and Glenn Resch are one of the 
best goaltending combos in the league. 

Philadelphia Flyers- 1979 was a 
heartbreaking season for the Flyers. 
The Broad Street Bullies set a new 

r - % ■* 

-. ** 







New York Islander Mike Bossy. 

Three Pacers selected 
to Ail-Star team 

record of 35 games without a loss, but 
ended the season by losing to the 
Islanders in the finals. Pete Peters is 
the best goaltender in the NHL. The 
trade of Andre Dupont will hurt the 
defensive corps. 

New York Rangers- A major 
disappointment last year. The Rangers 
are a hard team to figure. One game 
they play like champs, the next game 
they play like a minor league 
team. Anders Hedberg and Phil 
Esposito lead the offensive attack. 

Calgary Flames- The move from 
Atlanta to Canada may help the 
Flames, who played the entire 1979-80 
season in front of an empty arena. 
Every year the Flames are expected to 
win the cup, but never do. One thing is 
for sure this year - the Flames won't 
come close. 

Washington Capital- The Caps had 
an outstanding second half last season. 
They just missed the playoffs last year 
and should qualify this time around. 

Conn Smythe Divisions Chicago 
Black Hawks- The Hawks may be a 
powerhouse for years to come. Tony 
Esposito is a stingy goaltender and 
front line leader. Chicago should run 
away with this hapless division 

St. Louis Blues- Bernie Federko 
leads a greatly improved team that 
surpiismgly made the playoffs last 
season. The young Blues can only get 

Vancouver Canucks-After a great 
1978-79 season, the Canucks fell apart 
last year because of dissension and bad 
trades. No one knows what to expect 
this year. 

Colorado Rockies- The Rockies 
showed great, improvement last year 
Former coach Don Cherry, said by 
some ^to % b© the reason, -for the 
turnaround, was fired at tJhMtonciusion 
of the past season. The Rockies should 
qualify for the playoffs this year 

Winn'vseg Jets- There is no hope for 
a team that has John Ferguson as its 
general manager. Ferguson ran the 
Rangers for three years and brought 
New York nothing but bad teams. 

Edmonoton Oilers- The Oilers have 
all offense and no defense. Wayne 
Gretsky, a 19-year-old, and Lonnie 
MacDonald lead the high scoring 
squad. The defense must cross their 
fingers and pray. 

Wales Conference 

Charles Adams Division: Minnesota 
North Stars- The North Stars pulled off 
the extreme upset in last years playoffs 
when they ousted the Canadians. A 
strong, young team that has nowhere to 
go but up. They may reach the Stanley 
Cup finals this year. 

Buffalo Sabres- The Sabres are still a 
very strong team, but the offense is 
getting old. The goaltending duo of 
Bob Suave and Don Edwards won the 
Vezina Trophy last season. 

Boston Bruins- One of the best NHL 
teams. A crop of good strong rookies 
are now coming in, but old timers Jean 
Ratelle and Brad Park are still present. 
Acquisition of Olympic hero Jim Craig 
and the trade for Rogie Vachon will 
give Boston a first class goalie tandem. 

Toronto Maple Leafs- If only the 
front office would let be, the Maple 
Leafs would be better off The 
management has decimated a once 
strong team. One-sided trades and 
dissention ruined a first class team. 

Quebec Nordiques- Maybe the best 
of the former WHA teams Real 
Cloutier is a first line offensive weapon 
A few more years could bring about a 

James Norris Division: Montreal 
Canadians- The ship is sinking. 
Injuries, internal conflict, and 
"retirements have lessened the Habs* 
chances for the season. Even with the 
problems, the Canadians are still 

Stanley Cup material, but no longer a 

Los Angeles Kings- The best 
offensive team in the league. Marcel 
Dionne, Bob Taylor, and Charley 
Simmer make up the NHL's most 
potent line. The defense leaves 
something to be desired. 

Pittsburgh Penguins- The Penguins 
defense is strong, but a team must be 
able to score goals to win and the 
Penguins do not score many goals. 

Detroit Red Wings- Forget it. 
There's no hope in Detroit. Every year 
they expect great things and nothing 
ever happens. The trading of Regie 
Vachon will hurt immensely. 

Hartford Whalers- The old folks 
home. After keeping 52-year-old 
Gordie Howe for a few seasons, the 
Whalers acquired 42-year-old Bobby 
Hull. The Whalers won't go anywhere 
until they start turning to youth rather 
than age

Pro -wrestling .-Actually it's a fake . PBJ jE™? y become PBCC 

% Bill Meredith 

Thank goodness for the college 
football season, for with all football 

.games starting at 12:30 p.m. on 
Saturdays, sports viewers are not 
subjected to professional wrest- 
ling, the worst joke in televised 


.% Actually, it isn't even a sport. If 

; ,^ou haven't seen professional 

'.Wrestling, congratulations, but 
fere's what takes place: anywhere 

■ from four to six matches occur, in 
which very muscular and strong- 
looking men with weights of 

7200-plus pounds pretend to hurt 
each other. 

There are rules, but nobody 
follows them, and nobody is 
penalized for breaking them. 

,Tag-team partners double-team 
opponents, and some wrestlers bite/ 
pull hair, kick, gouge eyes, 
scratch, and use foreign objects 
like chairs and brass knuckles. 
When the referee sees a wrestler 
doing something illegal, the 

■wrestler simply knocks out the 
referee, who regains conscious- 
ness just in time to see that 

wrestler pin his opponent to the 
canvas. Then the ret calmly raises 
the hand that had knocked him 
senseless in victory. 

No one really gets hurt- it's 
about 75 percent fake, if not more. 
As big as most wrestlers are, they 
can't possibly take the punishment 
(kicks, punches, headlocks, gou- 
ges, twisted limbs) that is 
supposedly dished upon them and 
return every week for more of it If 
the punishment were real, most 
pro wrestlers would be unrecog- 
nizable as human beings after a 
few weeks. 

As well as being almost-compe- 
tent actors, some pro wrestlers 
show amazing sings of having 
E.S.P.For example, six weeks ago 
a friend of wrestler Dusty Rhodes, 
one Qiver "Rooster" Humperdink, 
was "beat up" on the "Champ- 
ionship Wrestling From Florida" 
program. Rhodes was not 
scheduled to wrestle on this day, 
but for some reason he decided to 
call and chat with Gordon Solie, 
announcer of the . televised 

The phone was conveniently 

sitting at Solie's elbow,, and the 
call conveniently came at a time 
when Solie was babbling on about 
something neither he nor anyone 
else cared about. 

"Oh, hi Dust," Solie said with 
his usual almost-convincing sur- 
prise. "Good to hear from you. 
Say, have you heard what has 
happened..." That call came not 
five minutes after the incident had 

There is a great deal of money to 
be made in pro wrestling. In fact, 
the bad actors in wrestling 
probably make (not earn) nearly as 
much as some of the good actors in 
Hollywood. And this is because pro 
wrestling draws full houses in 
cities like West Palm Beach all 
over the country. 

Both young and old people flock 
to auditoriums and television sets 
to catch professional wrestling, 
when the youngsters could get 
more out of an episode of 
'Superfriends' and the adults more 
out of 'Fantasy Island'. Profess- 
ional wrestling is an insult to 
human intelligence. 

Is this man really hurting? 

Kintz captures Women's Amateur 

Julie Kintz of Atlantis shot a final round 75 for a 218 total to capture the 3rd annual Palm 
Beach County Women's Amateur Golf championship played Oct. 14-16 at Cadillac-Fairview's 
Indian Spring Golf Course in Boynton Beach. 

Kintz, a 19-year-old sophomore and team golfer at PBJC won her second amateur golf 
tournament, the first being the Pat Bradley Invitational. Reggie Hawes of North Palm Beach 
was a distant runner up, 14 strokes off the pace. 

The 1 68 golfers competing in the championship made up the largest field in the tournament' s 
three years. 

Jim Brotherton, Indian Spring golf pro, believes Kintz has the talent to become a great 
professional some day. 

"Julie is already a fine player, and she'll get better, too. Her 218 score is the best in this 
tournament's three year history, and she played under less than ideal weather conditions, ' ' he

In a letter to District Board of Trustee 
members, PBJC president Edward M. Eissey 
requested the college change its name from 
Palm Beach Junior College to Palm Beach 
Community College. 

A 42 member Administrative/Supervisory 
Committee consisting of administrators, deans, 
managers, directors, department chairpersons, 
and Eissey unanimously voted to ask the 
board's consideration of the change. 

The proposal will go before the board at the 
Wednesday, Nov. 19 meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the 
Food Service Center. 

' T would like to see the name changed. This is 
a community college and I would like to see it 
designated as such. We have outgrown the 
name junior," said Dr. Melvin Haynes, 

vice-president of student affairs. 

Haynes believes the board will study and 
evaluate the recommendation, but probably 
won't bring the item to a vote until a later date. 

In 1975, a similar campaign triggered in 
hopes of altering the college's name. Public 
unrest and dissatisfaction carried on through 
February, 1976. A number of hearings were 
conducted and for a short time the name Palm 
Beach Community College was actually in 
effect. However, the public battle continued and 
the old name was reinstated. 
In 1975, Eissey served as a member of the BOT 
and voted the change down. Now he favors the 

Eissey and board members Dr. Phillip O. 
Lichtblau and George A. Michael were out of 
town and unavailable for comment. 

PBJC enrollment 
continues to climb 

Like prices, unemployment, and Slim Whitman's singing 
voice, Palm Beach Junior College enrollment continues to rise 
according to figures released this week: 

Non-credit enrollment reached 12,158 through Oct. 9, » 13.4 
percent increase over last year. Credit enrollment topped the 
10,000 mark for the first time in history, reaching 10,974 and 
showed amazing gains at PBJC South. 

The south campus, located in Boca Raton, surged 32.7 
percent over last year, reaching 1,646 students. PBJC North, 
in Palm Beach Gardens, still holds a slight lead over the south 
with 1,917 students. However, south campus students have 
pulled ahead in other important categories including 
registered hours and number of classes. 

PBJC Glades showed a slight gain, upping its mark to 636 
students, a gain of 48.

PBJC players' Sly Fox : 
A bit of theater history 

1 1 

* » '« A' 

By Claire Horner 
Staff Writer 

Just how far can greed drive a person? How 
much humiliation can someone endure in the 
pursuit of wealth? "Sly Fox," a production of 
The Palm Beach Junior College Players 
provided some interesting and hilarious 
answers to these and other questions. 

The wealth in this case is in the hands of 
Foxwell J. Sly, a rich and greedy citizen of 
ium-of -the- century San Francisco. Not content 
with the riches he already possesses, Sly works 
out a scheme to manipulate his equally greedy 
"friends" into handing Over their own money.' 
Assisted by his faithful servant Simon Able, 
whom Sly rescued from debtors' prison, Sly 
pretends he is on his deathbed, and is trying to 
decide whom to name as his sole heir. 

His friends vie for his favor with expensive 
presents and cash. The plan works well, and Sly 
grows richer by the day. However, he soon 
decides that he wants more than money from his 
friends, and develops an interesting way to use 
their weaknesses and hypocrisies against them. 
As he points out to Able, "There is no dark 
corner of the human heart that I do not know. ' ' 

Some very dark corners of very dark hearts 
are revealed, as Sly's friends stumble over one 

another in their quest for gold. The audience 
meets such Figures as- Lawyer Craven, an 
unscrupulous attorney; Jethro Crouch, an 
elderly widower who never remarried after his 
wife's death because "I could never find anyone 
to fit her clothes." Abner Truckle, a jealous 
husband whose wife is "the toast of the coast;" 
Miss Fancy, replete in black gown and bustle, a 
self-described "pleasure engineer" who has her 
own plans for Sly; a hanging Judge who walks 
around carrying a noose; and a chief of police 
who doubles as "The Frisco Flasher." All of 
these people, and more, had a hand at trying to 
outdo Foxwell at his own game, and all were, of 
course, eventually outfoxed by the sly one 

The play is a bit of theater history , originating 
in Shakespeare's time as Ben Jonson's 
"Volpone." It was updated by Larry Gelbart, 
an award-winning playwright, and acted out by 
such notables as Rex Harrison, Bert Lahr, and 
Cliff Robertson. 

The cast was made up entirely of PBJC 
students with actors doubling as stagehands. 
Faculty director Frank Leahy said of his group, 
"They are a "hard, hard, working group. The 
total hours spent on this was unbelievable. I am 
very proud of all of them. ' '

The Florida Community College Coordinating 
Board passed a resolution on Thursday, Nov. 13 
opposing expansion of Florida's four upper 
division universities to include the freshman 
and sophomore years. 

The unanimous vote by the 11-member board 
is an attempt to cut short the drive by the upper 
division schools — particularly Florida 
International University and the University of 
West Florida — to offer the first two years of 

"The principal group we hope will be 
influenced is the state university system itself, " 
said Carol Ann Breyer, a spokesman for the 

She also said the board hopes the measure 

will influence recommendations by the 
Post' Secondary Planning Commission which is 
studying the future of higher education in 

Breyer said a board study indicates $17 
million would be needed to expand the upper 
division universities — that also include the 
University of North Florida and Florida Atiantic 

She said the board believes the money could 
be better spent in shoring up the present system 
of 27 community colleges across the state. 

The 1 1 -member board is made up of nine local 
trustees from the colleges, a student member 
and one at-large member.

The Beachcomber's recent lampoon issue, "The Slimcomber' 
has not only caught the attention of the local media, evidenced 
by columnist Ron Wiggins' recent column, but has hit it big on 
the national level as well. 

A copy of the Slimcomber was sent to CBS Records in New 
York where it was greeted with overwhelming approval. 
Executives at CBS reportedly made hundreds of copies of the 
now legendary lampoon and" distributed it all over the United 
States, mostly in Nashville- the country and western capital of 
the U.S.

Moral majority phenomenon sweeps Capitol Hill 

They are a phenomenon known as the Moral 
Majority. Regarding themselves as the new 
wave that will unseat those Congressmen and 
Senators who are not ' 'moral, ' ' they are in their 
own minds the new index of what is right and 
what is wrong on Capitol Hill . 

Last July this "new wave" decided that 
Alabama Senator Donald Stewart's voting 
record was not, in their words, "pleasing to 
God." Christian Voice, an evangelical 
publication, found Stewart to be only 23 percent 
moral. During a rally in Washington over the 
summer, a group of Moral Majority supporters 
took it upon themselves to protest outside the 
offices of the Senator and demand that lie step 
outside and pray for forgiveness with them. 

What the Moral Majority is doing is toying 
with the Constitution. Somewhere along the line 
someone has forgotten the actual meaning of 
theseparation of church and state. 

This is alarming. With all due respect to 
religious worship, the idea of any private 
interest group attempting to wedge its way on 
the floor of the Senate or into the houses of 
Congress is absurd. 

If the evangelicals, as they are some) tines 

known, did in fact have anything to do with 
successfully seating Ronald Reagan as our next 
prsident as the press has so often speculated, 
this constitutes an even greater reason for 

This is not to advocate that morality and a 
sense of ethics should not be a part of 
Washington politics. It goes without saying that 
conducting affairs by such guidelines in 
Washington is almost nonexistent. 

The Moral Majority stance on the issues has 
not presented itself as being terribly realistic. 
To be moral and conservative is fine but sooner 
oi later one has to catch up with the rest of the 
world and get a sense of what is going on around 

An editorial cartoon by syndicated cartoonist 
Mike Peters puts the whole Moral Majority 
issue into perspective. A characterization of a 
man is accompanied by these words: "As a 
candidate... this man would be against capital 
punishment, for social reforms, opposed to the 
arms race, in favor of the ERA and therefore 
unacceptable to the Moral Majority. The man in 
the cartoon is Jesus Christ. 

Carter had far away eyes 

We know, we know. We're 
as sick of talking politics as 
you are and probably more so. 
But there are a few more 
points worthy of mention, so 
bear with us one more time 
and we'll promise to drop the 
subject - for now. 

On Nov. 4, the presidential 
polls closed at 7 p.m. in the 
East and at 8 p.m. in 
California. President Carter 
gave his nationwide conceding 
speech around 10 p.m. 
Eastern Standard Time, mak- 
ing it approximately 6 p.m. in 
California's time zone. 

It doesn't take a genius to 
realize that two hours of voting 
time were wasted in California 
as a result. Reports from the 
earthquake state indicate that 
a large portion of voters didn't 
even bother to vote after 
hearing of Carter's throwing 
in the towel. 

Not that it would have made 
a big difference if Carter had 
waited, but out of courtesy and 
respect maybe he should have, 
at least until midnight. Then 
the polls in the Western states 

would have been closed and 
the California voters wouldn't 
have been robbed of their 
voting rights. Think about it. If 
Carter had conceded on Nov. 

3, how many people would 
have bothered voting on the 

4 th? 

It may have been the final 
blunder by a president who's 
numerous blunders stripped 

I am Tony 

him of a second term in office. 
Jimmy Carter would have 
been a better president in his 
second four years only 
because he wouldn't be in the 
White House to entice people 
to re-elect him. 

Why do our presidents 
serve two terms? During the 
first they only function to win a 
second. Maybe some of our 
country's problems stem from 
a president getting more than 
one chance to serve dutifully 
in the nation's highest office. 
A one-term (four or six year) 
presidential system would 
probably eliminate such fig- 

As long as Reagan (or any 
president) serves their first 
term, they will be doing so 
with far-away eyes. Reagan 
will be aspiring toward 
winning a second term. 

Maybe if Jimmy Carter had 
only one chance as president 
he would have concentrated 
more on the nation's problems 
than on his own welfare. A 
one-term presidential system 
might help eliminate such 
blundering leaders .

Speak out 

Dear Editor, 

Recently, SGA President Ed 
Rigolo wrote a statement 
regarding student apathy. I 
feel he is leaping to 
conclusions and disregarding 
other factors. 

As it is, most students (and I 
am an example), place 
schoolwork and studies before 
anything else. They find that 
most of their time is spent at 
home for studies. Many 
students have jobs that help 
pay for their tuition which 
takes up even more time. 
Students that don't work often 
have no money for recreation 
and activities, or carry such a 
full load of classes that they 
find it very difficult to 
participate in school activities. 
Many don't have cars or live 
too far from school to be able 
to afford the gas to a special 
activity, especially when it 
isn't held during school hours. 

If a student's major isn't a 
popular one, it's most likely 
that a club won't be available 
for him to enjoy and benefit 
from. Isn't it a club's purpose 
to further a student's 
involvement and knowledge in 
his future career? I don't think 
I know one student who is 
apathetic about his future, 
regardless of his goals. 

I think Ed has a good idea 
by wanting to formulate 
activities centered on student 
interest, but I think he is 
confusing apathy for personal 
priorities. After all, if students 
were truly apathetic, they 
wouldn't even attend college. 
If I didn't care, I'd rather take 
the easy way out and forget 
about the hassle of register- 

Jennifer Hendrickson 

Dear Editor, 

I belong to a "club." 1 
belong to the BEACHCOM- 
BER, and I work 30 hours a 
week and have 12 credit hours 
here at PBJC. I put in about .10 
to 12 hours a week here at the 
paper and I live 20 to 30 
minutes away from the 

What is my idea of an 
apathetic student body? Any- 
one who goes to school for s*k 
hours and sits in a class 
without any participation. 

There isn't anyone without a 
social life. That creatui e does 
not exist. Think about that 

I very rarely have enough 
money to carry me thtough for 
gas but the rewards I have 
come across from my 
participation at the BEACH- 
COMBER are far from 
senseless and time-wasting. 
The quality of people I work 
with are one example. It is 
very rare for a person to come 
across so many talented and 
fine people as I have at the 

I feel my future is import ant 
because I feel what I have to 
do is important, not only to 
me, but for the benefit of the 
people around me. 

I am only speaking for the 
unsure about the procedures 
of other clubs, but let me add 
this, if you really want 
to.... you can.

Community forum identifies problems 

Monday, November 17, 1980 BEACHCOMBER -3 

By Kim Davis 
Staff Writer 

Discussion gropus made headway in identifying goals and 
defining objectives in six community problem areas in the 
second of two public forums on Community Development for 
the 80's held at Palm Beach Junior College on Wednesday, 
Nov. 12. 

James E. Brannigan, director of the PBJC Foundation, and 
Anne Sweeney Smith from the Junior League of the Palm 
Beaches were the keynote speakers at the forum. 

"We want to be the partner to everyone in Palm Beach 
County," said Brannigan in his opening address to the forum. 
Brannigan stressed the importance of citizens taking the future 
of the county into their own hands and determining the quality 
of life they want for their children. 

Smith outlined the management process while stressing the 
need for citizen action in community development projects. 

One of the best formulated goals came from the committee 
on health care headed by Dorothy Shutt, with help from Bob 
Wilson, assistant director of the Health Planning Council. 

The goal they chose was to increase longevity and quality of 
life through community education programs in the prevention 
of disease and preservation of health. 

The committee working on education, led by Harriett 
Brenner with James G. Daniels of the Palm Beach County 

School System and Elizabeth Woolfe of PBJC decided as their 
first goal a comprehensive program of health and environment 
education in grades one through 12. 

The housing committee, led by Doris Singer with John J. 
Green of the Department of Housing and Community 
Development devised a goal to work toward joint venture 
projects between private industry and government to solve 
housing problems. 

The transportation committee, headed by Kathleen Aiello 
with Ned Brooks of the Area Planning Board, adopted a goal to 
provide mass transit to satisfy community needs. 

The committee on planned growth, headed by Tom Kelly, 
editor of The Post, and assisted by Jack Horneman of the > Area 
Planning Board adopted the goal of working toward mass 
citizen interest and participation through the media and other 

The committee on crime, led by Linda Schenker and assisted 
by Charles McCutcheon of the Palm Beach County Sheriffs 
Department, decided to adopt the process of bringing citizen 
interest in crime prevention as their main goal. 

Barbara Hurst of PBJC and the Institute of New Dimensions 
is working to get a government grant which would enable these 
forums to continue at Palm Beach Junior College in an effort to 
get community colleges more closely involved in community

Today in history SGA attends state convention 

Today is Monday, Nov. 17, the 322nd day of 1980. There are 
44 days left in the year. 

Those born on this day are under the sign of Scorpio. 

Today's highlight in history: 

On Nov. 17, 1869, the Suez Canal opened in Egypt linking the 
Mediterranean and Red seas. 

On this date: 

In 1745, French and Indian forces attacked Saratoga, N.Y. 

In 1800, the U.S. Congress convened in Washington D.C. for 
the first time. 

In 1881, Samuel Gompers organized the Federation of 
Organized Trades and Labor Unions, the forerunner of the 
American Federation of Labor. 

In 1913, the first vessels passed through the Panama Canal. 

In 1969, the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks between the 
United States and the Soviet Union began in Helsinki, Finland. 

In 1973, former President Richard Nixon defended himself 
against charges of wrongdoing, saying "I am not a crook. " 

Ten years ago, an unmanned Soviet vehicle moved on the 
surface of the moon, steered by signals from Earth. 

Five years ago, the FBI reported that crime in the United 
States had jumped 18 percent in one year. 

One year ago, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini ordered the 
release of all women and black hostages at the U.S. embassy in 

Today's birthdays: Actor Rock Hudson is 55 years old.

and community college students in Florida on 
school-related matters, is divided into five- 
districts. All four PBJC campuses, Central, 
North, South, and Glades, as well as Broward 
and Indian River Community Colleges, 
comprise District 5. 

PBJC Central SGA members included Todd 
Schupper, Michelle Meyer, Bruce McDowell, 
Lydia Henson, Debbie Harrell, Tracey Ryan, 
Rosvita Rauch, and faculty adviser Donald

a "Sly Fox" dress rehearsal. Photo by Laura Ott 

Ben Jonson classic. 

The play centered around 
Foxwell J. Sly (Darin de 
Peahul), who pretends to be 
deathly ill to collect gold 
("God with an T ") from each 
of the bumbling characters 
who believes he or she can be 
Foxwell's sole heir. A 
near-permanent fixture in 
leading role spots, de Peahul 
was superb as Sly — it may 
have been his best performan- 
ce as a PBJC Player. 

Among the competitors for 
Sly's will, Abner Truckle 
(Garry Messick) and Jethro 
Crouch (Pedro Alejandro) 
stood out. Messick and Rita 
Duffey, as Mrs. Truckle, had 
excellent Irish accents al- 
though Duffey seemed a bit 
typecast in her "puritan" role 
considering that she played a 
nun in "House of Blue 
Leaves," the spring product- 
ion. She lacked the character- 
ization that Messick radiated 
among the Irish duo. 

Alejandro was the surprise 
of "Sly Fox" in what was 
probably its most demanding 
role. Crouch was a greedy 
man, seemingly in his 80's, 
and Alejandro's character 
would make Tim Conway

proud. He was hilarious. 

Overshadowed slightly by 
stellar performances were 
Lawyer Craven (Jeff Liven- 
good), whose French accent 
faded at times, and the 
madame, Miss Fancy (Tern 
Byers). A fixture in this sort of 
character role, Byers was 
sometimes monotone. 

Still, one of the play's 
funniest scenes occurred 
between she and Alejandro. 
Miss Fancy visits the home of 
Jethro Crouch to divert his 
interests from Sly's will. 
While sitting close to him she 
stuffs his hand down her 
blouse, but as she finishes her 
long and seductive harague 
she finds Crouch is asleep and 
dumps him on the floor. 

Newcomber Danny Finch 
was excellent as Sly's 
assistant and general emcee 
Simon Able. A Cardinal 
Newman graduate, Finch was 
presented the best actor award 
at the 1980 PBJC High School 
Drama Festival in February. 

In smaller but important 
roles, Danny Stewart played 
an interestingly deranged 
Chief of Police and Richard 
Hamilton an imposing and 
entirely believable Judge 

Joey Pouliot, as Captain 
Crouch, overacted a bit too 
much in a role that demanded 
some overacting, and Danny 
Baihuber, Alan Brown, James 
Taffuri and Horace Ben Helm 

all played adequate utility 

Deanne Kepple, Carrie 
Carter and Carolyn Breder 
were good as Sly's servants 
and dance hall girls, although 
their song and dance routines 
seemed to be only filler for the 
quick and quiet scene 

The sets themselves were 
not as elaborate as in past 
productions but were very 
effective. Costumes were also 
good, immediately bringing to 
mind 19th century styles. 

Direction and choreography 
are hidden arts, but from all 
indications faculty director 
Frank Leahy, student diiectors 
Robin Clarke, Jeff Falls and 
Anne Moffett, and choreog- 
rapher Kathy Jo Campbell did 
outstanding jobs. 

A tricky courtroom scene 
especially demanded precise 
direction, with Judge Bas- 
tardson literally throwing the 
book at Captain Crouch, and 
the witness stand (on wheels) 
being pushed around the 
courtroom floor complete with 
occupants. Strong language 
also abounded throughout the 
play but was handled with tact 
and added to the considerable 
stock of laughs. 

Foxwell J. Sly wins in the 
end, as did anyone attending 
this production. Congratula- 
tions to Leahy, cast and crew.

Fox" lost out on an evening of

Drop your guard 
for a minute. 

Even though you're 
in a two-year college 
right now, there are 
many aspects of the 
Army you might find very attractive. 
Maybe even irresistible. 

See for yourself. 


If you're thinking of eventually 
going to a four-year college, it's not 
too early to start thinking about an 
ROTC scholarship. 

There are 2-year and even 1-year 
ROTC scholarships available. 

They cover tuition, books, and 
lab fees. Plus $100 a month living 
allowance. Naturally, they're very 
competitive. Because besides helping 
you towards your bachelor's degree, 
an ROTC scholarship helps you 
towards the gold bars of an Army 
Officer. It's worth looking into. 

WllliS & ft CHOPPER 

With two years of college under 
your belt, you can get preferential 
consideration for Warrant Officer 
Flight Training. 

If you pass all the tests and 
qualify, you'll go through 40 weeks 
of rigorous and valuable training. 

You'll earn the distinctive bars of 
a warrant officer and the silver wings 
of an Army aviator. You'll have at 
least 175 hours of flight instruction, 
40 hours with a flight simulator, 4 
weeks night qualification, and 
enough classroom work in aerody- 
namics, meteorology and aerial 
navigation to last a lifetime. 

The result is a rewarding, 
responsible and prestigious position 
as an Army helicopter pilot. 


What you've learned in college 
has already earned you a promotion 
in the Army. 


It's true. If you join the Army 
with two years of college, you can 
start two pay grades higher. Instead 
of being an E-l with an empty sleeve, 
you can come in as E-3 with stripes. 

It means about $60 more a month 
in your paycheck. And a lot more op- 
portunity in the long run. Since you'll 
be literally wearing your education 
on your sleeve, your talents won't go 
unnoticed by your superiors. 

And starting out right can really 
help you make the most of the Army. 


You can get a $1,500 bonus just 
for enlisting in some Army Reserve 
units. Or up to $2,000 in educational 

You also get paid for your 
Reserve duty. It comes out to about 
$1,000 a year for 16 hours a month 
and two weeks annual training. 

And there's a special 
program that lets you fit 
your Army Reserve active 
duty around your school 

It's something to con- 
sider. Because even if you 
went to a two-year college 
because it was less expen- 
sive than a four-year col- 
lege, you know by now that 
it still isn't cheap. 

A few years in the 
Army can help you 
get not only the 
money for tuition, 
but also the maturity 
to use it wisely. 

The Army has a program in 
which money you save for college 
is matched two-for-one by the 
government. Then, if you qualify, 
generous bonuses are added to that. 

So 2 years of service can get 
you up to $7,400 for college, 3 years 
up to $12,100, and 4 years up to 
$14,100. In addition, bonuses up to 
$3,000 are available for certain 4- 
year enlistments in selected skills. 

Add in all the experience and 
maturity you can get, and you can 
see how the Army can send you back 
to college a richer person in more 
ways than one. 

We hope these Army oppor- 
tunities have intrigued you as well 
as surprised you. 

Because there is indeed a lot 
the Army can offer a bright person 
like you.

ships, □ (2WO) Warrant Officer Flight Training 
□ (2ST) Stripes to Start, D (2SS) Army Reserve 
Bonuses, □ (2PC) Army Educational Benefits. 







If you're thinking you 
might even go further with 
your college education, the 
Army can help there, too.

To those looking for refuge 
from the scores of grade"z"

invaded movie theatres, 
"Fade to Black" will be no 
haven. The ads promise the 
movie as a well made thriller, 
but somehow this film fails 
short of even the smallest of 

In "Fade to Black," the 
audience is offered two heroes

A diamond in the roog

Chief Copy/News Editor 

Adveisity. Webster describes it as 
misfortune, a trouble state, or a disaster. In 
1977-78 coach Joe Ceravolo and the Palm Beach 
Junior College Pacers turned disaster into a 
near miracle. Ceravolo faces asimilar but less 
serious situation this season. 

Outmanned by every team they played in 
height, muscle and depth, the now famous 1978 
"eight is enough" PBJC basketball team won 
the state championsip and came to within seven 
points of a national championship ending the 
year seventh in the nation. 

The 1980 edition has lost some of its top 
players including much needed height in Jeff 
Washington and Paul Matton and faces a 
similar uphill stiuggle. 

They showed miraculous signs of recovery by 
defeating Palm Beach Atlantic 88-57 last week 

at the Pacer Gym. One week earlier, PBJC 
struggled to a 76-74 win over the same Sailfish. 

The leturn of guard Dennis Graham and 
overall improvement in elimination turnovers 
paved the way for the victory. Luis Fuentes led 
the scoring with 18 points and dominated the 
boaids. Guard Barlow Hopson and forward 
Chuck Paul do added 17 and 10 points.

Late last week it was learned that Ernie 
Monis, PBJC's leading scorer in 1978-79 and 
one of the thiee who had quit the team, has 
letumed and would be in uniform for the Nov 
14 game at Florida College. This announcement 
slightly raises hopes of another championship 
season for Joe Ceravolo 

Jane Williams' first taste of 
intercollegiate volleyball, to 
put it mildly, was disappoint- 
ing m all aspects except her 
standout play on the winless 
Palm Beach Junior College 

Jane, a resident of Boynton 
Beach and player at Delray 
Beach Atlantic, performed 
well enough to be nominated 
for the Division IV all-star 
team, but as her Coach John 
Anderson explained, "to the 
winners go the spoils. 

"It's a shame — she played 
well enough to make it," said 
Anderson. "But when your 
team goes 0-14 it's hard to get 
any recognition." 

Williams hasn't let the 
disappointments dim her goal 
of becoming a volleyball 
coach. "I want to finish 
college and become a physical 
education teacher and coach 
volleyball," said the 5'10" 
blond. "I am going to try to 
get in at the University of 
Tampa, or the University of 
Alabama at Birmingham. I 
had considered Florida State, 
but I got a letter from their 
coach saying they couldn't 
sign me — and she hadn't 
even seen me play. 

Anderson is confident Jane 
will catch on at either Tampa, 
or Alabama-Birmingham. 
"She is an extremely 
coach able player who is 
equally strong on offense or 
defense. I've known her for 
four years now, and got her 
here on a softball scholarship. 
But her heart is in volleyball, 
and she has everything it takes 
to be a good coach." 

Williams played on a U.S. 
Volleyball Association team 

tluoughout the summer and 
will rejoin the squad soon for 
games thioughout the state. 
She won a spot on the West 
Palm Beach-based team after 
winning honors all foui years 
she played at Atlantic. She 
was voted the Rookie of the 
Year, best offensive and 
defensive player, and most 
valuable. Other honors in- 
cluded All-Suncoast and 

Anderson lauded Williams 
for her play under trying 
conditions. "She carried a big 
load and the girls looked to her 
to be the leader as well as 
carrying the brunt of the 
action. She was many times 
the outstanding player on the 

Williams swallowed her 
disappointment over the 
winless season, and said, "I 
tried to keep the team up, but 
it seemed like so many little 
things happened to keep us 
from winning." 

Jane echoed Coach Ander- 
son's comments that Palm 
Beach County still had a long 
way to go before volleyball 
would be an accepted sport. 

"Beach ball is popular, but 
it doesn't have much interest 
as a competitive sport," she 
said. "The girls in Dade 
County are so far ahead of 
us... they played the whole 
year around and that makes a 
big difference. " 

"But I think in time the 
sport will catch on. It will take 
time, but a lot of new sports

The term "Pacers" has 
been connected with sports for 
a number of years. Who or 
what is a Pacer? Many 
students ask the same 
questions and they find it 
difficult to identify such. Some 
colleges have Seminoles, 
Gators, Longhorns, Buckeyes, 
Wildcats, and Pantheis, but 
we have the Pacers.

76ers and Lakers to fight for title 

"By Ross Sanders 
Sports Editor 

rn_-i j , , . ~r Atlantic Division 

Philadelphia 76ers-Every year the 76ers seem to set 
stronger. Julius Erving and Daryl Dawkins lead the 
offense. The big question mark is whether or not Doug 
Collins will be able to come back after major knee 

Boston Celtics- The maturing of sophomore Larry 
Bird will keep the Celtics near the top. The loss of 
Dave Cowens will hurt in the long run; the Celtics will 
miss Cowens' intensity. 

New York Knicks- The youngest team in the NBA. 
Give a couple of years to Michael Ray Richardson, Bill 
Cartwright, Reggie Carter, and Ray Williams and the 
Knicks will be the team they once were in the 1970' s. 

New York Nets- The Nets are a much improved 
team, but are lacking speed. Mike O'Koren and Mike 
Giminski were fine draft picks. Maurice Lucas is one 
of the best forwards in the league. 

Washington Bullets-Age has taken its toll. How long 
can Wes Unsel, Kevin Porter, and Elvin Hayes be 
expected to carry the entire load? 

Central Division 

Milwaukee Bucks- Last year's trade for superstar 
Bob Lanier solidified an already potent offensive 
attack. Mickey Johnson and Marques Johnson are 
former all-stars. 

Atlanta Hawks- The Hawks surprised the NBA last 
season by almost entering the championsip series, but 
the drug related problems of Eddie Johnson can do 
nothing but hurt the team . 

Indiana Pacers- Billy Knight and a reborn George 
McGinnis lead the Pacers, who are trying to reach the 
upper division for the first time in years. 

Chicago Bulls- The loss of Mickey Johnson to the 
Bucks hurt the chances for the Bulls to improve over 
last season. The acquisition of Larry Kenon should 
boost the Bulls' scoring attack. 

Cleveland Cavaliers- Injuries have ruined a once 
strong team. The Cavs are also cleaning house. They 
traded away stars Foots Walker (to the Nets) and 
Campy Russell (to the Knicks). 

Detroit Pistons- The Pistons were the worst team in 
the league last season, and no doubt will retain that 
distinction this year. Theie is no hope. 
Midwest Division 
San Antonio Spuis- Geoige Gervin and that's it, but 
that's all the Spurs need in this weak division. There 
is no defense at all on this squad. 

Kansas City Kings- A no-name team that should 
fight the Spurs for first place. Otis Birdsongstais as the 
Kings' leading scorer. 

Houston Rockets- The Rockets are no more than a 
mediocie team. They have not made a half decent 
trade oi diaft pick for years. Eveiy season there sits 
Calvin Muiphy, Rudy Tomjanovich, and Moses 
Malone. Nothing else. 

Denver Nuggets- David Thompson will try to make 
a big comeback after a disappointing season. Center 
Dan Issel is one of Denver's all-time greats. 

Utah Jazz- The big news in Salt Lake City is the 
drafting of Darrell Giiffith. Don't get your hopes up 
too high. Who would want to play their whole career 
in Utah?

Celtics' Larry Bird 

1980-81 season. The Mavs do have potential with 
players such as Tommy LaGarde and Richard 
Washington. Kiki Vandeweghe's decision to sit out 
this season will hurt them. 

Pacific Division 
Los Angeles Lakers- The best team in the league 
last season, and the best again. Anywhere you look 
all you see are star performers. Abdul- Jabbar, Magic 
Johnson, and Russ Nixon are the team's leaders. 

Phoenix Suns- Dennis Johnson will make the 
already powerful Suns even stronger. Alvin Adams 
leads the frontcourters. 

Seattle Super Sonics- Who will the Dennis Johnson 
for Paul Westphal deal help more, the Suns or the 
Sonics? Most likely the Suns. The Sonics aie a team 
made up of "team" play, and Westphal does not fit 
that mold. 

Portland Trail Blazers - This is a must win year for 
the Blazers. Mychal Thompson must play a full season 
without iniunes. Forward Kermit Washington will 
once again be an all-star. 

San Diego Clippeis - If Bill Walton finally comes 
around, then the Clippers will be a threat. The trading 
of ball hog Lloyd Fiee was a plus. 

Golden State Warriors- The good news is the 
drafting of Joe Barry Can-oil. The bad news is the

A survey of Palm Beach Junior College 
administrators indicates PBJC's proposed name 
change to Palm Beach Coummunity College is 
an idea whose time has come. 

PBJC President Edward M. Eissey said, ' 'My 
recommendation to the board of trustees is 
based upon the fact that I think we now are truly 
a community college. We serve all facets of the 
community, not simply the young but the 
elderly, the handicapped, those who are visually 
impaired, etc." 

Eissey cited PBJC's many outreach programs 
dealing with the total community, including 
classes in over 71 areas, which include 
businesses, hospitals, schools, churches, 
television, newspapers and radio. 

"'The junior college philosophy has changed 
so that it reflects more activities than the 
institutions did, say even as late as ten years 
ago," Dr. Paul Graham, vice-president of 
academic affairs said. 

In agreement with this opinion is Dr. G. Tony 
Tate, vice-president of business affairs. He 
believes that the function of the college has 
changed over the last several years to be more 
than just a university parallel program and that 
the proposed name would be a better 
description of all the services that are offered at 

One administrator who pointed out the 
importance of gauging community and student 
sentiment was Otis Harvey, Jr., dean of 
continuing education. He suggested that in the 
past many prominent businessmen and local 
historians were against the name change and 
since new arrivals have moved into the area, it 
would be interesting to see what the current 
assessment would be. 

"When we discussed the name change 
several years ago, 1 was very much opposed. I 
felt it was a tradition that we were known and 
nationally recognized as PBJC and to change 
that we would lose our identity. I have mellowed 
with age and now have no objection to the 
change in name," Dr. Elisabeth Erling, dean of 
special services said. 

Dr. Erling expressed seeing merit in being 
known as a community college, since PBJC has 
a much greater role in serving the needs of the 
community at this time. 

£&-— * 

The proposed name change from Palm Beach Junior College 
to Palm Beach Community College has raised some interesting 
questions. Many think, because of college tradition, the name 
should remain the same. Others, citing PBJC's commitment to 
serve the entire community, think a change is in order. 
Beachcomber staff writers Cynthia Voisin, Tony Rizzo, Mark 
Dreps and Steve Beverly interviewed a cross section of students, 
teachers and administrators to find out what they thought. Here 
is what they found.

Dr. Samuel Bottosto, chairperson of the social science 
department: "It has definitely been needed for a long time. We 
need lo catch up with the rest of the institutions throughout the 
state that have already changed their names. 

"1 can understand the feelings of nostalgia that some people 
have in wanting to keep the name Palm Beach Junior College. In 
the beginning we were a post high school, so to speak, for those 
that were unemployed as well as those needing the education to 
help them with, their careers. .We,no^ grown t$Jr>ecam^»; 
more than that ' ' * 

Rubin Hale, chairperson of the art depa'r^nient : "I very much 
agiee with Dr. Eissey in wanting to have the name of the college 
changed. We have outgrown the junior college image." 

Betty Ann Morgan, chairperson of the nursing department "I 
was at the board meeting, I guess I really don't care. That is to 
say I really don't mind which way we go on it. " 

Letha Madge Royce, chairperson of the music department 
said, "I like the name we have. I think we're known by that 

"I feel the name change from PBJC to PBCC will not have a 
drastic effect on our athletic program," said athletic director 
Tom Mullins. "Changing the letters on the uniforms would not 
be a major financial factor. The only true cost would be to 
change the logo on the gym floor. ' ' 

According to athletic department chairman Dr. Howard 
Reynolds, PBJC has built a good reputation in sports the past 10 
to 12 years. The school has been PBJC for the past 47 years and 
the alumni might resent a name change, he said. Reynolds 
agreed with Mullins that the name change would not be a major 
financial hardship on the athetic department. 



Cathy Ciannilli, a sophomore business major 
and president of Phi Theta Kappa: "1 
understand that the college serves the 
community to a great extent but I feel that it 
would be a waste of money to change the name. 
Also since the college is the first public junior 
college, it should keep its original name." 

Mary Jo Faffke, an occupational therapy 
major, feels that despite the fact that it is a 
waste of money, the names shouldn't be changed. 
"We need to carry on the tradition. We 

don't have much in the way of tradition any 

Mandy Moore, an environmental science 
major: "My first reaction was against it because 
it was a waste of money. Considering that I'm in 
my third year, I realize how much the college 
actually serves the community and 'junior' 
doesn't describe its purpose. ' ' 

Mike Chesnes, a sophomore journalism 
major: "It really doesn't matter to me but 
considering the people that it will affect I think 
it's a waste of time. Why make unnecessary 

Pharmasist Wayne Bostain, a graduate of the 
class of 1974: "No matter what they change the 
name to, a lot of people including myself will 
always refer to the school as Palm Beach Junior 

Bill McConnell, a freshman public relations 
major: "The name change is a pointless issue to 
argue about. No one is complaining about the 
name as it is so why make controversy over it. 
Keep it the same and let the issue die. ' ' 

Rick Cobb, a freshman business major: "The 
name 'junior' fits the college well. It sounds a 
little more sophisticated. ' ' 

Pat Igo, a freshman business administration 
major: "PBJC has a good reputation. I feel with 
a name change it may lose it. People may think 
that PBCC is a totally different school. ' ' 

Katherine Cleary, a sophomore physical 
education major: "PBJC is a known name and 
people know its status. When transferring I 
think the name may play an important role."

By Bruce McDowell 
Staff Writer 

Seventeen members of the Pacei baseball team and two 
coaches donated blood to the Palm Beach County Blood Bank 

The blood was donated to a special account for Ray Reeves, a 
hemophiliac (free bleeder). 

"He has to get a shot every two days to keep his condition 
under control," said coach Dusty Rhodes. Ray has taken over 
15,000 shots thus far in his life. 

Reeves is a 16-year-old sophomore at Palm Beach Gardens 
High school.

The latest attempt between 
the administration and the 
United Faculty of PBJC to 
come to a contractual 
agreement has failed. 

During a public hearing 
held Nov. 19, Ann Steckler, 
union negotiator, and Jesse 
Hogg, administration negotia- 
tor, presented their views to 
the PBJC Board of Trustees in 
front of a standing room only 

In Steckler's presentation, 
she expressed the union's 
view on the management's 
rights clause by asking, "Is it 
unreasonable for the faculty to 
expect that management be 
required to give earnest 
consideration to the impact of 
any substantive change made 
that affects wages, hours, or 
working conditions whether in 
contract or not? And, if 
management fails to do so, is 
the faculty not entitled to some 
appeal to higher authority?" 

On the topic of retroactivity, 
Steckler said, "To deny 
retroactivity is to be punitive - 
pure and simple. " 

PBJC contract negotiations fail again 

Despite the union's moving 
presentation, the board voted 
unanimously for the manage- 
ment's rights clause and four 
to one against retroactive pay. 

The lone vote for retroactive 
pay was cast by board 
member George Michael. 
Michael felt that since the 
money had already been 
budgeted, they should go 
ahead and refund the faculty 
retroactive pay. 

Management later started 
plans on a new contract that 
contains a strong management 
rights clause and a 9.5 percent 
pay increase that will take 
effect when the contract is 
signed by both the adminis- 
tration and faculty. 

If the proposed contract is 
not signed, the faculty and 
administration will again be at 
an impasse.

however, consider a request

as FPL. 

PBJC trustees voted to

Why not LWJC? 

Palm Beach Community 
College could well become a 
reality should the District 
Board of Trustees vote for the 
change at its Dec. 17 meeting. 

All is in a hold position for 
the time being with Mrs. 
Homer Hand heading a 
committee to investigate 
public reaction. 

Four hundred faculty and 
staff members received ques- 
tionnaires in their paycheck 
envelopes on Friday to gain 
their feedback. 

In addition, community 
organizations as well as PBJC 
alumni have been sent 

Hand should be commended 
for her efforts. She is 
attempting to contact "as 
many people as humanly 
possible." Most importantly, 
she wants the students' input. 
"After all," she said, "they 
are the most important. ' ' 

But no matter what the 
outcome of the poll, everyone 
is entitled to his own opinion. 

This publication is strongly 
against renaming Palm Beach 
Junior College Palm Beach 
Community College. 

Palm Beach Junior College 
was founded in 1933, and has 
gained a tremendous nation- 
wide reputation as a junior 
college . 

Why cause unnecessary 
chaos by having to change 
marquees printed material, 
athletic uniforms and more? 

If anything, why not Lake 
Worth Junior College? 


Some local theatres 'commercializing' their product 

If you ask people why they go to movie theatres for 
entertainment, answers are likely to vary. Many people 
view movies in theatres today, and the ever-rising 
theater prices cannot be a reason. Chances are that 
convenience is a main factor. 

People go to movie theatres to escape reality , the same 
reason they watch television. But there is one looming 
difference between the two- you don't have to endure 
commericals at the theatre. 

At least you didn't have to before the Village Green 
(Palm Beach) Mall Cinema chain started showing 
commercials before movies earlier this year. If one goes 
to see a noon movie at one of these theatres, they are 
likely to sit through five or six commercials and two 
movie previews, with the movie that is listed to start at 
noon actually starting at 12:15. 

This wouldn't be so bad if the newspaper listings and 
marques didn't tell outright lies. If a movie's starting 
time is listed at 12 p.m. then the movie itself should start 
at 12, right? We would suggest that the papers and 
marquees read "Commercials and previews 12:00, film 
starts at 12:15." 

These commercials can have a negative effect on a 
good film. If one goes to see "Ordinary People" (an 

excellent film) at the Mall Cinema they will be forced to 
endure advertisements from a real estate school, a 
mural-painting company for vans, a beauty salon, a pizza 
parlor and an automobile company. As if that isn't 
enough, one is then subjected to two movie previews and 
a message from a talking trash can. The movie then 
starts 15 minutes late with the audience wondering why 
the hell they came on time. 

As you leave the theatre you are thinking of how good 
"Ordinary People" was, but the fact that you have been 
suckered into watching what the theatre wants you to 
watch is also likely to stick in your mind. 

If the Village Green-Mall Cinema chain gets away with 
showing commercials before films then it will only be a 
matter of time before every theatre gets into the act. 
And then there will be intermission for commercials, and 
then commercials every 10 minutes or so. 

Our message is this — avoid the movie theatres that 

show commercials. Eventually they will feel your 

_ message in their not inconsiderable pocketbooks and will 

' be forced to exhibit the REAL starting times of films, or 

better yet will stop showing commercials in 'theatres 

altogether. Don't we see enough commercials already? 

SNL Star encounters 'The Dunk' 

Is Mr. Bill a 'little d'? 

As expected, we received 
our semesterly letter from Mr. 
Bill last week. It was to our 
surprise that he decided to 
stay at PBJC after his 
experiences last semester, but 
it seems he found interest in a 
certain teacher. . . . 
Dear Editor, 

I was visibly upset after my 
unsuccessful try at registering 
last term, and as I was walking 
from the registrar's office 
some of my fellow students 
tried to cheer me up. "Aren't 
you going to take one of The 
Dunk's classes?" one asked. I 
was confused. "The Big 'D'!" 
said another. "Who?" I 
asked. "That Shakespearean 
scholar, the king of comedy! 
You have to take one of The 
Dunk's classes!" 

I figured it couldn't be too 
bad. Since I couldn't register, 
I decided to just sit in for a 
week and see what I thought. 
And what a week it was! I 
haven't been able to tear 
myself away from any of Mr. 

Duncan's classes all term. It's 
been a great experience, but 
one thing bothers me. All my 
friends say that The Big 'D' 
has had so much influence on 
me that I'm turning into a little 

Well, he's a great teacher 
but I don't agree with that at 
all. I mean, at the beginning of 
the semester I didn't know 
The Dunk from Adam's 
housecat. He could have been 
a crud from Canal Point for all 
I knew. 

I asked all the teenies on the 
other side of the campus if 
they knew Mr. Duncan, but 
they all just stood there with 
their bare faces hanging out, 
saying "durrrrrrr, which way 
did he go?" "All right," I 
said. "You've all probably 
been home watching 'Gidget 
Goes Hawaiian'," 

What asses they were! They 
had the combined mentality of 
a mud fence. Still, I soon 
found out what a great teacher 
The Dunk was. My first week 
in class I felt like I had been hit 

by a semi. I even decided to sit 
in on ENL-2020 as well as 

It has been an orgy of 
learning. My first few classes I 
sat out on Congress Avenue 
but as I became more 
interested I moved up further 
and am now in the front row. 
I've learned about The Big S, 

The Colossal S, The Rather 
Large M, The Lazy S.T.C., 
Bobby Burns and The Teke. I 
am truly enriched with my 
learning of English Literature. 

Well I guess that's about 

all I have to say. I'm sitting 
here in my den of iniquity 
reading "Take Me To Your 
Leader" by John Bunyan. 
Besides, it's time to head for 
the refrigerator to get Spot his 
Busch Bavanan, then my 
space queen and I are going to 
go chase ourselves. 

Just -one more thing - 
anyone who thinks I've turned 
in to a little 'd' has vacuum 
tubes for brain cells! 

Truly yours, 
Mr. BUI 

I sincerely apologize to 
anyone involved in the 
production of "Sly Fox" who 
was upset by my play review. 
Please understand that my 
intention was not to hurt 
anyone's feelings but to give 
an honest review of what I 
though was a very good play 

A review as such represents 
only one person's feelings and 
should not be overestimated, 
but let me make one more 
editorial comment — such an 
intercampus critique is noth- 
ing compared to the critiques 
one would encounter on 
Broadway or in Hollywood 
(places I assume most college 
actors aspire toward), for that 
cnticism is likely to be found in 
publications with at least 10 
times the circulation of the 
Beachcomber. Every time an 
actor steps on the stage he or 
she is open to criticism, and 
learning to accept that fact is a 
step toward becoming a 
successful actor. 

Again, I apologize. If I had 
known the consequences 
beforehand, I would not have 
written the review.

Faulty equipment 
bums MGM Grand 

Ten beams where there 
perhaps should have been 20. 
It's a familiar story that has so 
often been the epilogue of any 
disaster where a great loss in 
human life is involved. 

Unfortunately this held true 
for all the victims of the fire 
that raged through the MGM 
Grand Hotel on Nov. 21. 

This time, again, it was 
human error. While whatever 
error that was concerned here 
may not have been intentional 
it presented itself as being just 

Specifically it was the fact 
that the alarm system in the 
hotel was not adequate 
enough to provide dependable 
fire protection for the MGM 

To the students and faculty, 

I am sure I also speak for 
Michele Kurteff when I say it 
has been my ecstatic pleasure 
and honor to serve as co-editor 
in chief of the Beachcomber 
for the past two semesters. 

The winter 79 term was 
mainly a learning experience 
and provided some enjoyable 
and memorable experiences, 
while the fall '80 term 
provided moments I will never 

Our staff for this past 
semester included a cast of 
crazies who added consider- 
ably to the fun and memories. 

The craziness was at its 
peak during the month of 
.October, with our state 
convention and the publishing 
of our "Slimcomber". We met 
many great people in 
Tallahassee at the convention, 
which was quite memorable, 
and the "Slimcomber" may 
eventually havp our staff on 
the cover of "Banjo Player 

Still, I feel the craziness and 
the hard work, of which there 
was a great deal, were 
well-balanced. Not many 
non-journalists know of the 
long weekly hours that make it 
possible for the Beachcomber 
to be on the stands on Monday 

We have been blessed with 
some great workers over the 
past two terms. Winter 79 
featured Celia Vock, Mark 
Mitchell, Ross Sanders, Bill 
Branca, Dee MeMahon, Robin 
Sarra, Kathi Anderson, Tony 
Rizzo, Bill Meeks, John Zack, 
Barbara Pederson, Don 
Childs, Angee Morris, Robin 
Aurelius, and Jim Hayward. 

The Clark County toxicolo- 
gistofthe medical examiner's 
office determined that the 
majority of the victims died of 
either direct smoke inhalation 
or toxic fumes from various 
burning materials in the hotel. 

What we see here is not 
murder as it is (defined in a 
dictionary but rather what 
appears to be a complete lack 
of regard for the safety of the 
general public. 

Whether this tragedy came 
about as a result of trying to 
cut corners or save a little 
money is irrelevant. The fact 
remains that in 1972 the major 
icpjjcern among planners of 
this hotel seemed to be profit 
and getting the job done as 
quickly as possible. 

Could this merely be a 
reflection of human nature? 
History has shown that if there 
is an easy way-out, whether it 
be to build or destroy, 
mankind will usually take it. 

However, the lack of 
responsibility that caused 
almost 100 persons to die 
unimaginable deaths cannot 
be overlooked by informed, 
conscientious members of 

It is the duty of any architect 
or fire official to insure that 
precautions have been taken 
to protect the public from fire 
and construction hazards. 

Why this was not taken into 
consideration when the MGM 
Grand was built is beyond us. 


Luckily for us, most of them 
returned, and additions for fall 
'80 were Kim Davis, Ted Hurt, 
Cynthia Voisin, Mark Dreps, 
Steve Beverly, Bruce McDow- 
ell, Mary Poyry, Randy 
Rospond, Jeff Falls, James 
Smith, Richard Weaver and 
Claire Horner. All have made 
significant contributions to- 
ward producing the Beach- 

And then there's my 
co-editor Michele Kurteff, 
without whom my job would 
have been much harder, and 
probably impossible. She has 
truly been a joy to work with. 

I would like to thank my 
adviser and teacher Dr. Arthur 
Noble for his guidance, and 
my other teachers during the 
fall term — Watson B. Duncan 
III and Larry Mack. My 
homework load has been 
limited enough to not interfere 
with my Beachcomber duties, 
which I also consider educa- 
tional and important. 

I thank Kevin Bair, last 
year's editor in chief, for 
giving me the opportunity to 
serve in my position. I also 
thank the students and faculty 
for their response this past 
semester, which has been 
excellent. Whether it be a 
congratulatory handshake or a 
critical letter, it is what we 
thrive on. Any response is 
greatly appreciated. 

I will be moving to the 
feature editor position next 
semester as I would rather not 
be named in a Slim Whitman 
lawsuit. We have an outstand- 
ing lineup of editors and staff 
for next term, so the Winter 
'80 Beachcomber should look 
sharp indeed.

and we strive to give you ours.

To the Editor: 

It was stated in the Nov. 17 
issue of Time that "Democrats 
wandering from the wreckage 
of their 1980 presidential 
campaign will be bitter and 
disconsolate for a while. But 
as the smoke lifts and they 
count their losses in the 
Senate and in the House, it 
may occur to them that in 
terms of the party's future, the 
defeat of Jimmy Carter, for all 
its landslide proportions, was 
not necessarily a disaster." 
Disappointment, maybe, but 
bitterness is something that is 
not apparent in the young 
Democrats of this country. 

The Republicans found 
themselves this year with 
Ronald Reagan and A NEW 
submerged and embracing 
conservatism in its traditional 
sense (defenders of the 
status-quo, less government 
spending to save money on 
taxes, free-handing big bus- 
iness to "revitalize the 
economy," less government 
regulation, less government... 
period) and supported by such 
groups as the National 
Conservative Political Action 
Committee (NCPAC) and Rev. 
Jerry Fal well's Moral Majority 
who backed up their calls for 
conservatism with megabucks 
and media blitzes that helped 
wash in enough Republicans 
to the Senate to capture the 
majority for the first time since 

However influential or 
noninfluential these groups 
were, Republicans across the 
country defeated some of the 
Senate's most powerful, 
liberal and senior senators in 
the process: George McGov- 
ern, Frank Church, Birch 
Bayh, John Culver, Warien 
Magnuson, Gaylord 1 Nelson 
and John Durkin. 

That sort of upset appears to 
be enough, along with the 
President, to cause bitterness 
in any losing party oi any 
cause. But the Democrats in 
the period between now and 
1984 have the same chance as 
the Republicans had horn 
1976-1980- the chance to start 
over, regroup, rebuild then- 
foundation and come back 
stronger than ever. 

If the Republicans could 
look within themselves and 
find new leadership without 
^particularly searching for new 
facef'^eagah" n'as~bee"h' 
*^^«i4ii»#^j^**b,i^ as 4^j^^ llViiW 
nomination for a' long time) 
what makes ANYONE look at 

the Democrats and say 
"they're all washed up'' ' 

The statement in Time was 
right: the defeat was not 
necessarily a disaster. 

The time has come for the 
Democrats of this nation not to 
desert their party but to help it 
by looking within itself for the 
strength and principle that 
brought it to the front in the 
fight for women's rights, for 
civil rights, for HUMAN 
rights, for Social Security and 
for Medicare; the strength and 
principle that brought us FDR, 
Harry Truman, JFK, Lyndon 
Johnson, Martin Luther King, 
Jr., Bobby Kennedy, Hubert 
Humprey, Walter Mondale, 
George McGovern, John 
Culver, Frank Church, Gary 
Hart, Jimmy Carter, Ted 
Kennedy, Warren Magnuson, 
Gaylord Nelson, John Durkin 
and Birch Bayh IN THE FIRST 

Can an entire political party 
yield its philosophy to a 
President who once stated that 
"eighty percent of air 
pollution comes from plants 
and trees? ' ' I think not. 

I also think that the cheers, 
applause, shouts and tears I 
heard and saw on the floor and 
in the halls of Madison Square 
Garden were not staged for 
the benefit of ABC, CBS and 
NBC, but weie from the heart 
and soul of the Democratic 
Party. They, ALL OF THEM, 
were responding to something 
they had been missing for 
years: committment to the 

"The committment. . . is 
not to outworn views, but to 
old values that will never wear 
out. Programs may sometimes 
become obsolete, but the ideal 

To the Editor- 
Since the beginning of the 
Fall term, it seems the most 
widely publicized news at 
PBJC has been the neogita- 
tions between the administra- 
tion and the United Faculty. 

Being a news reportei for 
the Beachcomber, I have been 
involved with more of the 
news affecting the faculty, 
administration, and PBJC as a 
whole than most students. 

It is my opinion that 
negotiations between faculty 
and admimstiation have gone 
too far. Instead of merely 
affecting the taculty and 
administration the negotia- 
tions (lack of negotiations) are. 
affecting the students. 
Teachers wearing black 
..ayijibands in protest, union 

of fairness always endures. 
Circumstances may change, 
but the work of compassion 
must continue. It is surely 
correct that we cannot solve 
problems by throwing money 
at them; but it is also correct 
that we dare not throw 
national problems onto a scrap 
heap of inattention and 
indifference. The poor may be 
out of political fashion, but 
they are not without human 
needs. The middle class may 
be angry, but they have not 
lost the dream that all 
Americans can advance to- 
gether. . . for all those whose 
cares have been our concern, 
the work goes on, the cause 
endures, the hope lives, and 
the dream shall never die." 
Ted Kennedy, 1980. 

The fact is that most 
Democrats in America wish 
Ronald Reagan well in his 
endeavors to lead this country 
away from its problems, and 
they do that without bitter- 
ness, without embarrassment 
and without undue criticism of 
his positions and/or solutions. 

That, of course, does not 
mean that the Democrats 
concede their principles and 
priorities. On the contrary, for 
they will endure these next 
four years, and they will again 
emerge as the Party of the 
People — stronger for the 

I hope that you, while 
attending PBJC as I did, learn 
to appreciate the seriousness 
and reality of these goals.

PBJC goes Hawaiian 

By Aiigee Morris 
Feature Editor 

Those who have appreciated 
the fine cuisine and exciting 
floor show at the Mai Kai 
would have enjoyed the luau 
sponsored by Hospitality 
Unlimited. Hospitality Unlim- 
ited is a campus club whose 
members are all students 
majormg in food service. 

The luau was held on Nov. 
14 in the food service building. 
The club planned and 
executed the gathering in just 
two months. 

"The students organized 
and carried out everything," 
said Helene Katsaros, the 
club's president. "We've all 
worked very hard to make sure 
this thing is a success." 

Guests numbering 125 were 
treated to such Hawaiian 
delicacies as seafood salads, 
chicken salad, apple and 
banana fritters, fruit salads, 
ham with a pineapple sauce, 
and suckling pig. All of the 
food was donated to the club 
by the students' employers. 

The food service building 
was decorated with a Hawiian 
motif. A thatched roof hung 
over the punch bar and palm 
branches and bamboo decor- 
ated the walls. Each guest was 
greeted at the doorway with a 
lei and a kiss from a girl in 
Hawaiian costume. 

After dinner, guests were 
entertained by a Hawaiian 
band, complete with hula 
girls. Several guests were 


called on stage to participate 
in the dancing, one of which 
was our very own Dr. Eissey, 
president of PBJC. 

Donations for the luau 
($12.50 per guest) will be used 
to send the club's members to 
a food service convention in 
Chicago in May. The luau 
produced close to $1000 
towards the $5000 goal. 

Hospitality Unlimited also 
plans to sponsor another 
project in February. This 
function will have a countty 
theme and will feature 
country music, square dancing 
and a few kegs of beer. It is 
suggested that we all support 
our fellow students and attend 
the club's "Country Hoe-

Leather Santa Claus binds Pamela 

By Jeff Falls 
Staff Writer 

"Yes, Virginia, there really 
is a Santa Claus," whispered 
Patiick, as he tightened the 
leather restraints on her 
ankles. "But he only brings 
presents to good little girls 
and, Virginia, you've been 
very naughty." 

Samantha was horribly 
confused. Confused because 
her name wasn't Virginia. 
Confused because it wasn't 
Christmas. Confused because 
her last memory was the 
closing moments of the Devo 
concert in the Summer of 

"But even though you've 
been naughty, Virginia, I'll 
bet Santa will still fill your 
stocking, " tittered Patrick. "It 

won't be long now." 

Now it was starting to come 
back to her— it wasn't the 
Devo concert, it was the 
B-52's. She wasn't Samantha 
— she was Pamela. Patrick 
wasn't Patrick — he was 
Edgar, her cousin from 
Wisconsin. "Please, Edgar," 
she implored. "Can't we just 
have turkey and eggnog like 
we usually do ? " 

"Not this time," uttered 
Edgar, a sinister tone coming 
into his voice. "You're going 
to be an Elfs' picnic when I get 
done with you." 

Suddenly it hit her! He 
wasn't Edgar, he was not 
Patrick. Who was he? What 
was he? "Who are you? What 
are YOU?" she screamed. 

"I am the ghost of Credit 
Past!" he hissed. 

"No!" she screamed, hei 
face alight with terror. 

"Yes, I'm afraid so, 
Pamela. How long did you 
think it could last?" 

"But I didn't mean it," 
moaned Pamela. "It was all a 

"A joke?" he asked her. 
"Visa and Master Charge are a 
joke, but there's nothing 
funny about a $1,400 bill at 
Burdines, $2,500 at Lord and 
Taylor. And I won't even bring 
up Saks...." 

"Saks?" she asked, her lips 
quivering with terror. 

He was momentarily gentle. 
"I'm sorry, kid. Worth 
Avenue is a rough place. 

People get hurt." 

"I promise I'll never do it 
again. "Really I do." 

"I'm afraid that's not good 
enougl- p am." 

"You t e going to take it all 
back?" she wailed. 

"No, worse than that. The 
Calvin Klein jeans are 
yours. Forever. So are the 
Halston originals, the per- 
fume, the jewelry." 

"Then what are you going 
to do?" she asked, momentar- 
ily relieved. 

"The merchandise is yours, 
Pam," he smiled. "But, we're 
taking back all the cards." 


"Oh, yes we can, Pam. Say 
goodbye to your Saks card. ' ' 


"Say goodbye to Burdines 
and Jordan Marsh. AND Lord 
and Taylor." 


"And Visa and Master Charge 

and American Express. ' ' 

"No, please don't do 

this to me." 

"Pam. Remember your 
check cashing card at Publix? 

It was more than she could 
take; she fainted dead away. 
The ghost of Credit Past 
slowly gathered his things and 
her plastic and headed for the 
door. He paused at the door, 
looking back just in time to see 
her regain consciousness. 

"Oh, Pam," he smiled.

'Beat Crazy' showcases Joe Jackson's lyrics 

Monday, December 8, 1980 BEACHCOMBER - 9 - 

By Bill Meredith 

The cover of "Beat Crazy," 
Toe Jackson's third LP, lists 
the artist as the "Joe Jackson 
Band," putting more empha- 
sis on the group as a whole 
than just its lead singer. This 
is certainly justified, since J.J. 
himself is the band's worst 

But he writes great lyrics, 
has a distinctive voice and 
plays some sparce ( but 
sparkling piano on "Beat 
Crazy." The album is not as 
instantly likeable as "Look 
Sharp," nor as ( instantly 
disappointing as "I'm The 
Man," but instead requires 
repeated listenings before 
acceptance as a good effort. 

A scream opens the title 
track and side one, setting the 
tone for this reggae-influenced 
disc. Bassist Graham Maby 
shares lead vocal duties with 
Jackson on this cut, which 
satirically describes the con- 
sequences of the American 
youth's "beat craziness" on 
our national defense — "And 

if the Russians ever come, 
they'll all be beating bongo 
drums. ' ' 

"One to One," a ballad, 
showcases Jackson's lyrics, 
voice and piano playing. 
Otherwise using only sparce 
percussion and backing vo- 
cals, the tune describes the 
singer's confusion with liber- 
ated women. 

The rest of side one focuses 
more on the talents of 
Jackson's fine band. "In 
Every Dream Home" displays 
bassist Graham Maby's reg- 
gae talents but is weakened by 
a monotone Jackson vocal. 

"The Evil Eye" contains great 
percussion work by drummer 
Dave Houghton and interest- 
ing bass and guitar interplay 
by Maby and guitarist Gary 
Sanford, as well as Jackson's 
best vocal. 

All of which leads to "Mad 
At You", a six minute, 
danceable and mostly instru- 
mental rocker with a furious 

bass line by Maby and some 
wild, raw guitar by Sanford. 
Side two has more of a 

lyrical focus and does not fare 
quite as well, but only in 

spots. "Crime Don't Pay" 
tells a tale of criminal and 
victim and contains a playful 
piano and melodica (a 
keyboard instrument) break 
which shows Jackson's jazz 

"Someone Up There" 
boasts another quick Maby 
bass line but also weak lyrics. 
The opposite is true of 
"Battleground," with its 
simple music but descriptive 
lyrics of black-white confron- 
tations, "Clenching fists unite 
and fight, Rock Against 
Racism rules tonight... some- 
thing is wrong, and no one is 
taking the blame. " 

The battle of the sexes' 
double- standard is humorous- 
ly described in "Biology," and 
all looks-no talent actors are 
attacked in "Pretty Boys." 
The latter contains a catchy 
bass line and fine percussion 
by Maby and Houghton 

"Fit" is a strange tune for 
Jackson, especially to end the 
album. Lashing out against 
those who oppose transsexuals 

and interracial breeding, it 
boasts a powerful guitar solo 
by Sanford and ends with the 
lyrics, "...maybe in some 
other lifetime you won't fit, 
and if you don't fit you're fit 
for nothing at all." 

"Beat Crazy" is easily Joe 
Jackson's most lyrical album, 
making it hard to swallow a! 
first. Guitarist Gary Sanford's 
creative involvement has 
decreased, but drummer Date 
Houghton is quick and crisp, 
and bassist Graham Maby is 
one of rock's more distinctive 
and better bass players. 

As for Jackson, he is and 
always has been a breath of 
fresh air among new wau 
artists. He has considerable 
lyrical talents and.js improving 
on the keyboards, and with h'u 
backing band he cannot g>

ZZ Top's West Palm Beach Pogo Party 

By BUI Meredith 

Three-piece rock bands are a rarity. 
Using only a guitar-drum-bass guitar 
lineup, a three-piece leaves no room for 
mistakes during a live performance. ZZ 
Top may be the best three-piece band in 
existence today, and they proved it at the 
West Palm Beach Auditorium Nov. 12. 

The show was not great, but the 

auditorium's acoustics (which were 
horrid) were mainly at fault, not the 
band's.Opening act Alvin Lee, of Ten 
Years After fame, kept the energy level 
high with Lee's lightning-quick guitar 

And then came ZZ Top, with a roar. ' 'I 
Thank You," from their latest effort 
"Deguello, ' ' opened the set, followed by 
old warhorses "Waitin' For the Bus"

and "Jesus Just Left Chicago," both 
from the 1973 LP "Tres Hombre." 
Bassist Dusty Hill's roaring bass line 
highlighted the former and guitarist 
Billy Gibbons' blues picking the latter. 

"Maniac Mechanic" used car engine 
sounds for special effect, and it was back 
to the blues on "Fool For Your 
Stockings.-" Gibbons^ handling the 
vocal, did a talk segment telling the 
audience of all the crosses they had to 

After Rev. Gibbons' sermon, the pace 
slackened with oldies "Lowdown in the 
Street" and "H Diablo." But "Heard it 
on the X," from one of ZZ's finest LP's- 
1975' s "Fandango," brought the crowd 
back to life. Drummer Frank Beard, 
doing a quick off-beat, was particularly 

On "I'm Bad," I'm Nationwide," 
Gibbons played a double-neck guitar, 
and a funky "Cheap Sunglasses was 
the first show-stopper, with the audience 
willingly helping out on the choruses. 
' ' Nasty Dogs and Funky Kings "also had 
the funk and led into a rousing 
"Arrested For Driving While Blind". 
Guitarist Gibbons did some fine picking 
and made history by being the first 
Texan to do the pogo. 

"Beer Drinkers and HeE Raisers," a 
concert anthem if there ever was one, 
was brief but enjoyable and was 
followed by a rip-snorting "La Grange." 
Hill and Gibbons pogoed to their hearts' 
content and Beard did an excellent 
cowbell and drum break near the end. 

The encores would have been 
anticlimactic had it not been for ZZ Top's 
screenplay. A movie screen was lowered 
behind the stage and the three band 
members appeared on it, complete with 
saxophones, to help out on "She Loves

Bombers capture another title: Intramural bowling 

The legend is leaving- things will never be the same; 

Editors Note- The legend is 
leaving us. In the years since 
his byline first appeared in the 
September 1977 Beachcomb- 
er, Bill Meeks has seen it all. 
From the 1978 state champ- 
ionship basketball team to this 
year's 0-14 vollyeball team. 
Bill, who is going on to pursue 
other goals after graduation, 
reminisces about his years at 

By Bill Meeks 
Staff Writer 

The time has come for the 
final mangling of the keys on 
my old faithful typewriter. I 
must now clear my fogged 
memory and the cobwebs to 
bring you a capsule report of 
Pacer athletics during my time 
as a Beachcomber sports 

The year is 1977. It is 
September. A recent grad 
from Palm Beach Gardens 
High School stumbles into 
the office of the Beachcomber. 
He asks to see who is in charge 
of sports. He is directed to 
James "Jim Beam" Good- 
man, sports editor. Goodman 
burps and says, "Billy, all I 
got is women's sports at the 
moment, but we'll work you 
into men's eventually." I say 
fine... volleyball here I come. 

Volleyball took off with only 
nine girls on coach Bobbie 
Knowles' squad. The girls, 
Laura Pierce, Sonia and Nora 

Barraza, Kim Clarke, Kim 
Jones, Melinda Toscano, Tina 
Valenti, Linda Walker and 
Nancy Hudnall played their 
hearts out and wound up 
eighth in the state. Coach 
Knowles' opening quotes of 
the season had an ominous 
ring. "There is a lack of 
interest in the sport. It's a 
shame because there are so 
many good women high school 
volleyball players, but there 
are no shcolarships for them. ' ' 
We followed the bouncing ball 
to softball. The Pacers took 
fifth place in state, but 
finished number one in the 
good looks department. The 
most notable was Laura 
Pierce, who needed a calendar 
to keep her dates straight. 

Miss Pierce wasn't the only 
one. The other girls on the 
squad had their share of 
attention. The only abstainer 
was team captain Melinda 
Toscano, which is under- 
standable — she was married. 

1978 rolled around with 
volleyball and new coach Johr 
Anderson. Instant success 
right? Wrong. The Lady 
Pacers had a 2-11 season and 
finished seventh out of eight 
teams in Division TV play. The 
softball season started off with 
a bang and a barrage of hits 
and the Pacers rolled to a 
34-13 record and a number one 
ranking in the state. Don't 
celebrate yet, they finished a 

dismal sixth out ot eight teams 
in the state tournament. 

Of course, while the girls 
were struggling along, coach 
Joe Ceravolo proved that eight 
was enough to bounce a 
basketball all the way to 
Hutchinson, Kan. and take 
seventh in the nation. PBJC 
gained a new athletic director 
in 1978 with Tom Mullins 
taking over for Dr. Howard 

In 1979, volleyball was 
cancelled due to lack of funds. 
The Pacer softball team 
cranked into high gear, 
posting a 38-12 regular season 
record. They finished third in 
the state tournament. Tennis 
at PBJC took off at a whirlwind 

pace to ace third in the state 

The baseball team held an 
Alumni baseball game that 
ended in a 3-3 tie. There was a 
winner - The American Cancer 
Society, who received all the 
profits and proceeds from the 

The womens tennis team, 
led by Beggs, Turdo, Wiggley 
and Locke volleyed and aced

This was followed by the 
women's golf team, who 
matched the tennis team's 
feat. The Polish Army of

Intramural bowling wrapped up its final league 
tournament Nov. 26 after 10 weeks of competition. 

The Beachcomber Bombers took first place place 
in the men's league after winning four out of four 
games. They posted an overall record of 23-9. Joe 
Lesko had the Bombers' highest average followed by 
Bruce McDowell, Bill Meredith and Bill Branca. 

In the womens' league, the Electras came in first 
with a total pin count of 22,385. Reasner had the 
highest average followed by Buhl, Smith and 
Sabonis-CharTee.Nowicki from the mens league took 
all three of the overall titles. He had the highest 
average with a 177, highest game with a 255, and 
highest series with a 647. 

In the womens league, high average went to 
Rosenberg and Leonard who both had a 144. With a 
204, Smith and Bramuchi were awarded the high 
game awards. The high series award went to 
Reasner who had a 542. 

Besides individual trophies, the first and last 
place teams were also awarded trophies. 

On Nov. 19, in the intercampus bowling activity in 
which the best male and female bowlers from PBJC 
Central bowled against the best bowlers from PBJC 
Glades and Broward Community College, PBJC 
Central came in third in the mens competition and 
took first in the womens division with the team of 
Lynn Rosenberg, Helen Leonard, Kathy Lavin and 
Debbie Waltenburg. Central also came in second in 
the coed division with Tom Jones, Ellen Murphy, 

Allan Boyce, and Sharon Goodman. 

Intramural coed bowling is planned for next 
semester and will probably start on Jan. 28. 
Openings are limited due to funds so early 
registration is recommended. 

"I enjoyed it and everybody had a good time, 
that's what's important," said Roy Bell, head of the 
intramural department. 

Activities planned for next semester include coed 
bowling, volleyball, table tennis, a tennis 
tournament, possibly another racquetball tourna- 
ment, basketball (including a free throw contest and 
a one-on-one tournament), a sailing regatta, and a 
swimming meet. 

For more information, look for dates and times in 
the Beachcomber and on campus bulletin boards.

Baseball Pacers set for Spring! 

By Bruce McDowell 
Staff Writer 

The PBJC fall baseball session has ended, but for Coach Dusty Rhodes an! 
the rest of the squad it is j ust the start of more vigorous practices as they preps.-! 
for the spring season. \ 

In September, 65 players took the field with hopes of making the team. Todajj 
only 28 players stand on the same field. Rhodes and his coaching staff hadi 
evaluate each player on their ability and talents. Their decisions were difficult i : 
players had to be cut or redshirted. 

The Pacers' weak spot this fall was hitting. "Many of the players who looker 
good last spring were not coming through for us," Rhodes said. "We fousr 
ourselves strong in defense, catching and pitching." | 

The 12-man pitching staff includes sophomore Jeff Blair, who made tM 
Florida Junior College fall All-Star team, and sophomores Sean Bauer, Ma£ 
Koesters and Jorge Vega. ■ ' f 

The Atlanta Braves and Montreal Expos will share the West Palm 
Municipal Stadium for spring training, and PBJC is talking to the Braves a. 
the use of the Pacer's field. 

"I got a call from Hank Aaron (director of player personel for the Brav< 
about the possibility of (the Braves) using our field during the morning for 
minor league games. Their AA and AAA teams would use the field, and ptf 
some of the games here, ' ' Rhodes said . '

Aquahol: Fuel of future? 

Woodbridge named 

director of research 

By Jim Hayward 

Associate Editor 

Amid published reports that 
propsed cattail cultivation 
would greatly endanger Flor- 
ida's environment, Dr. David 
W. Woodbridge was named 
director of research and 
development for Palm Beach 
Junior College's much-publi- 
cized Aquahol project. 

PBJC President Edward M. 
Eissey made the announce- 
ment on Jan. 7 putting 
Woodbridge, a scientist and 
energy expert, in complete 
control of the project. "It is 
hoped that this project is the 
kernal for growth of many new 
programs for training as well 
as research," Woodbridge 

The five-year project was 
funded by a $4.9 million grant, 
announced in late October. 
Woodbridge hopes to bring in 
more Ph.D's for research and 
make PBJC a center for the 
state in Aquahol development. 
"There is no aim in going in 
and using the wild areas of the 
Everglades for the program," 
he said. 

"Dr. Woodbridge has an 
excellent background for the 
Aquahol project. In seeking 
employees for this institution, 
PBJC seeks nationwide for the 
best," Eissey said. "This 
should quell any anxiety that 
the Audobon Society and 
others nationally and locally 
might have about the 


Approximately 80 acres of 
land at the Gressinger 
Brothers' farm in Belle Glade 
is slated to be used for the 
project. "There are three 
20-acre rectangular plots and 
one 16-acre triangular plot, 
on which cattails have already 
been planted — some from 
seed and some from rhi- 
zomes," Woodbridge said. 
Rhizomes are stems that bear 
roots in the soil. 

The 20-acre sites will be 
divided into five-acre tracts to 
experiment with different 
methods of growing, each

Union charges trustees 
with unfair labor practices 

By Kim Davis 

News Editor 

The United Faculty of Palm 

Beach Junior College charged 
the college Board of Trustees 
with an unfair labor practice 

Name change 
voted down 


News Editor 

Due to overwhelming opposition, the Palm Beach Junior 
College Board of Trustees (BOT) voted unanimously in their 
December meeting to keep "Junior" in the name of the 

In a survey conducted by board member Mrs. Homer Hand, 
a reported 623 of 982 persons surveyed favored sustaining 
Palm Beach Junior College as the school's name; 330 favored 
the change to Palm Beach Community College; and 29 persons 
suggested various other names for the college. 

In other news, James Brannigan, director of the Palm Beach 
Junior College Foundation, gave an updated report of the 
college's Aquahol project. 

Brannigan called charges by the local press against the 
Aquahol project "absolute falsehoods." He said the charges 
were based on information taken out of context. 

The department of energy awarded the college a grant of 
$419 million to investigate the possibility of cultivating cattails 
to produce alcohol, but only after it received and researched 
over 300,000 requests. 

Brannigan dispelled any controversy surrounding his 
position in relation to the project. He said that although he had 
been a paid consultant for the Lantana Boatyard, he was not a 
paid consultant on this project. 

Dr. Paul Dasher, chairman of the PBJC science department 
and Dr. Cecil Conley, president of PBJC Glades, spoke briefly 
on behalf of the project. Dr. Dasher called the project 
"thermodynamically sound" while Dr. Conley outlined the 
benefits of the project to the Glades area. 

A report was also presented by college president Dr. Edward 
Eissey identifing 20 long range goals prepared by trustees and 
college administrative staff. The board will study these goals 
for one month before voting their approval. 

The plan sets estimated completion targets, assigns persons 
responsible for implementation, identifies problems related to 
the accomplishment of the goals and sets out how the goals will 
be evaluated. 

There was also a request made by the Student 
Government Association to change the name of one of the 

RtrfifitS ntl trifi PRTC fVn+ml pnmniio Tti» mnnori mac tnmnrl 

Dec. 10. 

The charges were filed one 
day before . teachers, librar- 
ians, and counselors were 
scheduled to vote on a 
proposed contract containing 

the controversial management 
rights clause. 

A 9.5 percent pay raise was 
also included in the proposed 
contract. The union maintains 
that trustees made the raise 
contingent on the union 
accepting the management 
rights clause. 

Faculty members upset by 
the union's decision to file 
charges started a petition to 
drop the union as a bargaining 
unit for the faculty. The 
petition drive headed by 
faculty member Roy Bell was 
signed by 54 faculty members. 
The petition asked for a vote to 
nullify the union at PBJC. 

During a surprise election, 
called after an annual 
employees meeting, faculty 
members voted 80-70 to keep 
the union as their bargaining 

As a result, the Public 
Employees Relations Com- 
mission (PERC) has scheduled 
Feb. 10 as the date for a 
hearing on the unfair labor 

College officials, however, 
have filed several motions 
with PERC two of which 
include a request for a delay 
and a dismissal of the charges, 

The college maintains that 
the charge does not give the 
college due notice of the 
nature of the violation and due 
process that is provided by the 
U.S. and Florida Constitu- 
tions. The college also claims 
that the charges were not filed

rZuc*^- Reagan: Speculation continues 

«► _ 1 C\„ Tin On W^ncil^ Bpanan Will ITlOSt. Donna^'o D.mnnrf if ;„ ,„;rlHla „r,P 





k ->s&'* y 

On Jan. 20, Ronald Reagan will 
become the 41st president of the 
United States of America. As always, 
the final days preceeding the 
inauguration are filled with specula- 
tion as to what, if any, changes the 
new administration will make. We at 
the Beachcomber are especially 
concerned with these policies which 
will affect young people in general 
and students in particular. 

The Reagan administration, like 
every other administration in this 
country's history, will undoubtedly 
move toward the political center once 
it comes into power. This is the 
traditional historical pattern for 
American politicians. 

During his presidential campaign, 
Reagan's only frequent reference to 
education was his declaration of 
intent to abolish the Department of 
Education (recently divorced from the 
Department of Health and Welfare). 
And it is President Reagan's silence 
education and other matters 
crucial to the young that concerns us 


So what can we expect from the 
Reagan administration? Perhaps the 
most ominous development so far 
is his nomination of Former Nixon 
Chief-of-Staff Alexander Haig as 
secretary of state. It is a truly 
frightening prospect, especially for 
those of us eligible for conscription. 
Haig was one of the most militant 
hawks of the Vietnam era, and it was 
during his period of military and 
political power that phrases such as 
"facist-pig" and "military-industrial 
complex' ' became everyday words on 
college campuses throughout the 
nation. The processes of conscription, 
started by President Carter, may 
achieve their unfortunate fruition with 
Gen. Haig in charge of foreign policy. 

Although the reinstitution of the 
draft may make Reagan's stand on 
education a moot point, his previous 
actions as governor of California and 
the few comments he has made while 
campaigning for the presidency, do 
not bode well for students. 

Reagan's support is in middle age, 
middle America and in the large 
corporate interests that run this 
country and most of the Western 
world. The final question is, can the 
United States of America afford to 
have a president whose interests are 
in maintaining and promoting a 
political system that is geared toward 
the old and the wealthy, while 
neglecting the needs of the young and 
the less privileged? We think not. 

The greatest hope that we have is 
that a liberal backlash will develop 
against the conservative policies 
Reagan will surely introduce. 

The moderate influences of 
Presidents Ford and Carter seemingly 
anesthetized the young liberals and 
moderates of this country. These days 
of moderation and political issues 
have come to an end. We have a 
Republican president and Congress 
and a rising tide of puritanical 
extremism forms such powerful 
lobbies as the Moral Majority. 


Why are you talking so funny? 

Dear Editor, 

I was going to America. Big 
deal! And there I was, 
midnight August 16, 1979. I 
sat down at some front porch, 
in the middle of the night, 
near Massachusetts Avenue in 
Cambridge near Boston. My 
friends were not home and my 
backpack got lost somewhere 
between Holland and New 
York. I sat pressed against the 
door, all alone with my purse 
and student visa. I glanced 
down the road and saw those 
huge cars sliding by. A guy 

passed and shouted to 
somebody on the third floor, 
"Hey man, what's new?" I 
laughed. "What's new? Ev- 
erything is new, man! I am in 

All the 104 international 
students on campus and each 
American who ever went 
abroad can tell you great 
stories about their first 
impression of a new land. The 
stories go way back to a 
moment where one did not 
know what would happen 
next, where one touched in the 

pitch darkness of adventure, 
of falling and standing up 
again, of learning, intense 

Well, we, the guys who are 
talking so funny, raised a club 
last year — out of nothing. 
There was a left over 
constitution with words none 
of us really understood and an 
adviser who was real nice but 
real busy, too. We never heard 
of the Roberts Rules, fees, 
bake sales, nor of expendi- 

tures allowed by the State. We 
sat there and had fun, carrying 
the big name of "Students for 
International Understand - 
ing." And we learned, boy we 
learned! You know, SIU is 
really not only for guys that 
are talking funny, SIU is for 
everybody at PBJC interested 
in international affairs. Inter- 
national understanding is an 
issue concerning all of us as 
we are part of a world with so 
many preconceived ideas,

Cop 'pleas' case 

Dear Person, 

It has come to my attention 
as a police recruit in class #24 
attending Palm Beach Junior 
College, that certain allega- 
tions are being brought 
against the class. 

I take offense at the 
impunity of this individual in 
citing a whole class for the 
actions of a "few" individuals. 
As we cannot classify 
"blacks" as "eating water- 
melon" and being "good 
tap-dancers" and members of 
the Jewish religion as being 
rich and "controlling all the 
money, ' ' neither can we judge" 
a class of educated individ- 
uals, as are most of the 
recruits, based on the actions 
of a vocal minority. 

You may feel it is hard to 
believe, but a great many 
people are joining the service, 
and a new younger breed of 
intellectual, sincere, honest 
and dedicated officers are 
emerging. These young men 
and women, despite popular 
opinion, are not making 
$50,000 a year or even $20,000 
a year, but on an average, 
approximately $13,000 to 

start. Can you believe in all 
honesty that these individuals 
are in it for the money? How 
much would you charge to be 
beat upon, spit at, criticized 
almost constantly, having 
many attempts upon your life? 
Is it possible that any 
individual is motivated out of 
personal gain? Then what will 
be the motivation of this 
individual? I put it to you as a 
society that most all officers 
are inspired only by a 
dedication to serve and protect 
the community. 

Also, it is important to note 
that even a doctor or lawyer 
may be prejudiced against 
certain ethnic groups, but 
would you feel he is less a 
professional and would com- 
promise his talents? 

I feel society as a whole and 
this college as a group should 
take an "intelligent look at 
the recruits before any 
judgement is made and to 
quote a great and fair man, in 
anyone's eyes: "let him 
without guilt cast the first 
stone." — Jesus Christ. 

Name Withheld 

Mr. Bill not welcome 
in Canal Point 

Dear Editor: 

It seems that a certain 
Mr.Bill has been attempting to 
become a scholar on the 
Central Campus (Beachcom- 
ber, Dec. 9). In spite of an 
attempt at an education which 
should broaden his perspect- 
ive, he refers to someone as a 
" cr ud from Canal Point . " 

Having known many resi- 
dents of Canal Point for over 
30 years, "crud" is not a 
typical description of Canal 
Point residents. In fact, Canal 
Point has produced chemists, 
physicians, educators, psy- 
chologists, veterinarians, two 
county commissioners, a 

member of the county school 
board of trustees, and many 
other professionals. Its sugar 
cane breeding experiment 
station is known internation- 
ally. In fact, the names of 
many popular varieties of 
sugar cane begin with CP 
which means they were 
developed in Canal Point. 

Please inform Mr. BUI that 
he need not register for any 
mathematics classes on the 
Glades campus as the entire 
mathematics faculty there is 
from Canal Point.

Editor's note 

We sympathize with your position and tend to agree with your 
comments, but you must realize that a chain is only as strong as 
its weakest link. We would encourage more self-regulation from 
within police departments everywhere in order to upgrade the 
department as a whole and to restrict, and hopefully eliminate 
the offensive actions of these "few individuals." We feel that it 
is our responsibility to make the public aware of the offensive 
situations due to the large responsibility that police officers have 
in society. We will continue to commend individual officers and 
criticize individual officers, as their conduct dictates.

9 to 5 : Hilarity and restraint - All in a day's work 

By Jeff Falls 

Staff Writer 
The funniest film of the Christmas 
season is undoubtedly "9 to 5." There 
has been a noticable national tendency 
for film critics to write off this 
delightfully charming and innovative 
film as a mere vehicle for Dolly Parton 
and/or Jane Fonda. This is simply not 
the case. 

"9 to 5" is written by Patricia 
Resnick and Colin Higgins and directed 
by Higgins. Higgins is best known for 
his direction of the hit comedy, "Silver 
Streak," in which he teamed up Gene 
Wilder, Richard Pryor and Jill 
Clayburg. Apparently, director Higgins 

has some kind of instinct for comedy 
teams, witnessed by the casing of 
Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Parton — not to 
mention a hilariously sinister perfor- 
mance from Dabney Coleman as Mr. 
Hart, the evil employer. 

"9 to 5" is the story of three working 
women (Fonda, Tomlin and Parton), 
all secretaries in the employ of the 
nasty, lecherous, sexist boss (Cole- 
man). Coleman is the bain of all the 
attractive girls in the office and they all 
share a mutual fear and loathing of 
him. The three heroines exchange their 
fantasies of doing in the boss in a 
drug-induced "fantasy secquence." 
This sequence is perhaps the funniest 
part of the film and the cinematic style 

which is used in this segment is a rarity 
in modern filmmaking — but it works 

The women don't quite kill their 
boss, although they do exact a quite 
fulfilling revenge. To say any more 
about the plot would be grossly unfair 
to everyone involved. It is quite 
surprising and tearfully funny. 
- The biggest surprise about "9 to 5", 
for many will be the fact that "yes, 
Dolly Parton can act." What is it with 
these Country and Western singers? 
First there was Kris Kristofferson in 
"A Star is Born". Then Mac Davis 
stole the show in ' ' North Dallas Forty' ' . 
Now Parton comes along and holds her 
own with two film heavyweights like 

Fonda and Tomlin. Another major 
surprise is the restraint with which 
Fonda conducts herself. Her timing 
and strength are masterful, although 
she does especially shine in a hilarious 
scene with a Xerox machine and in her 
portion of the fantasy sequence. 

Tomlin is very funny; although the 
competition with Parton 's debut and 
Fonda's finesse makes her role seem 
somewhat pale at times. Her attempts 
at trying to remove a corpse from a 
hospital are indescribably funny. 

All in all, "9 to 5" is an extremely 
entertaining film and it is to Colin 
Higgins credit that he has again 
assembled and directed such a 
charming picture.

Suncoast High, Pauldo played 
for the Chargers all four years 
and participated in state 
competition at the end of his 
freshmen year. During his 
junior and senior years, 
Pauldo received awards for the 
most assists as well as being a 
top scorer for the club. 
Concerning his style of play, 
Pauldo prefers the front court, 
although, he is effective inside 
as well. The strongest part of 
his game is offense and he is 
an effective passer on the 

"We are having some new 
guys to join the club this 
winter which will help the 
team a hell of a lot," Pauldo 
said. He also stated that the 
team could do well even 
without the new players.

"Chuck is one of the most 
consistent players we have on 
the squad. He is an all around 
excellent player," said head 
coach Joe Ceravolo. 

Currently a sophomore at

communications and hopes to 
break into the field of 
electronic journalism. He 
prefers to go into radio

prospective schools include 
Cornell University in New

and Armstrong University in 
Georgia. Even though Pauldo 
has lived in Florida all of his 
life, he would rather go to 
school out of state and travel 
around the country before 
settling down. 

Another interest in Pauldo's 
life is music. He is fond of 
nearly all music with the

which runs a close second is 
women. He likes all women

SGA in turmoil 

Associate Editor 

After weeks of infighting, 
an attempted impeachment 
/special election and an 
apparent reconciliation, the 
PBJC Student Government 
Association (SGA) was rocked 
this week by the resignation of 
Vice President Bruce McDow- 
ell, Treasurer Todd Schupper 
and at least four members of 
the senate. 

At 3 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 
22, McDowell announced the 
following statement: "Due to 
ineconcilable differences with 
the leadership of student 
government, I feel it is in the 
best interests of Palm Beach 
Junior College to resign my 
position as vice president of 
the Student Government 
Association." Just six days 
earlier, McDowell and SGA 
President Ed Rigolo had 
apparently cleared up their 
difference of opinions that 
nearly resulted in a special 
election for the office of 
president. / 

Along with McDowell and 
Schupper, Senators Donna 
Culbertson, Belinda Bray, 
Tracey Ryan and Debbie 
Harrell resigned for various 
other reasons. More resigna- 
tions were expected. The 
latest announcements further 
adds 1 to a turbulent year for 
the SGA in which only Rigolo 
remains from the origional 
executive board. 

In May 1980, Richard 
Kochersperger, Rigolo, Jen- 
nifer Hendrickson, and Alysia 
Letiziano ran unopposed for 
the positions of president, vice 
president, secretary and 
treasurer of the executive 
board. This fall, when 
Letiziano did not return to 
school, Schupper was named 

September elections went 
smoothly with an above 
average voter turnout. On Oct. 
6, Kochersperger resigned as 
president due to personal 
reasons. Rigolo, a sophomore, 
was named his successor and 

McDowell, a freshman senator, 
was named vice president. On 
Oct. 23, Hendrickson resigned 
as secretary to devote more 
time to other activities. 
Freshman Senator Shelly 
Meyer was named to replace 
her. Meyer remains SGA 

Over the months they 
worked together, a rift 
developed between McDowell 
and Rigolo. At a Jan. 13 
senate meeting, McDowell 
made a proposal to hold a 
special election for president 
open to anyone including 
himself and Rigolo. The 
senate voted 9-0 in favor of the 
special election. 

At an executive board 
meeting on Jan. 14, McDowell 
asked Rigolo to resign. Rigolo 
refused and the board voted 
3-1 in favor of a special 
election. At this point, Donald 
W. Cook, adviser of the SGA, 
and Robert C. Moss, dean of 
student activities met with 
McDowell on two successive 
nights and appeared to have 
settled the conflict. 

Schupper, the sophomore 
treasurer, arranged a meeting 
for Jan. 23 between McDowell 
and Rigolo to settle their 
conflict. A list was drawn up 
and the two came to a 
"gentleman's agreement" 
admitting that any kind of 
scandal would ruin the image 
of the SGA. "I'm going to try 
to work with him, McDowell 
said. "We're putting our 
personal feelings aside and 
trying to work with and for the 
students." On the same day, 
sophomore Senator Donna 
Culbertson resigned to devote 
more time to academics. 

On Monday, Schupper 
announced his resignation. 
"Because I feel that my 
effectiveness and efficiency 
are severely curtailed by those 
who do not have the best 
interests of the SGA at heart, I 
am forced to resign the office 
of treasurer of the Student 
Government Association," 
Schupper said. Ryan also 
resigned Monday, citing her 
cheerleading and other factors

as her reasons. 

By Thursday, all problems 
seemed to be worked out. 
"We have come to an 
agreement. So far it's working 
fine," Rigolo said. "I wasn't 
hearing any complaints and if I 
don't know how people feel, I 
can't do anything about it.

Erling appointed 
vice president 

By Kim Davis 
News Editor 

Dr. Elisabeth Erling, dean of special services 
at PBJC, was unanimously appointed vice 
president of special services by the board of 
trustees in their January meeting. She is the 
first woman to hold the position of vice 
president in the history of PBJC. 

Dr. Erling has been at PBJC since 1956. She 
joined the faculty as a physical education 
teacher and later became the department's first 
chairman. She was named dean of special 
services in 1978. 

group of people work as 
closely together as the SGA 
does, there are bound to be 
conflicts. "A difference of 
opinions of this type is not an 
unusual occurence in the 
student government over the 
years," he s^aid. "When you 
have four strong people 
working together for a 
common cause, frictiorr re- 
sults. Only time will tell if 
everything is worked out." 
Moss added that they had 
made a sincere effort to work 
out their problems. 

Cook said basically the same 
thing Moss did and added that 
the SGA is a Volunteer 
organization and if you want to 
resign, you're free to do so. 
"It's unfortunate, but these 
things happen," he said. "I 
hope eveiyone involved has 
learned something. ' ' 

Bray resigned on Thursday, 
also because of personal 
reasons. On Friday, Harrell, 
the president pro tern, an- 
nounced her resignation, 
further complicating the 
troubled state of the SGA. 

Elections for next year's 
executive board will be held in 
late April or early May. 
McDowell has declined to 

comment on whether or not his 
name will be on the ballot. 

Despite the controversy, the 
semester continues and Rigolo 
has several new plans in the 
works. "I'm starting a judicial 
branch of the government, 
intercampus meetings and am 
appointing advise is to help me 
get a better understanding of 
how the students feel," he 
said. Intercampus meetings, 
involving all four campuses, 
will be held on Thursdays ai 2 
p.m. in the cafeteria and will 
allow the students to get more 
involved in the student 

Homecoming activities are 
complete and promise to be

since homecoming was rein-

activities are a battle of the 
bands, wheelchair basketball, 
PTK Gong Show, two baseball 
games, the homecoming 
basketball game and cere- 
monies, a celebrity Softball 
game, homecoming picnic and 
many more. 

Despite the mass resipn- 
tions, the student govern'

hopefully better, days ahe ^

Fans still mourning 

Lennon's death 

Shortly before his death, 
John Lennon was asked how 
he felt about living in New 
York. "It's really great, no one 
bugs you. I can go into a 
restaurant without any worry 
of being hassled." 

After his tragic death 
questions began to arise about 
the people and circumstances 
surrounding the fatal shoot- 

What about Yoko? What 
will happen to Mark David 
Chapman? What about New 
York State's tough handgun 

In Manhattan, public ser- 
vice announcements hang in 
subways and public buildings 
reminding New Yorkers that 
they face up to a 20-year 
prison term if they are 
convicted of carrying a 
handgun. It has been said that 
New York has the toughest 
handgun law in the country. _ 

Such a law was enacted in 

a lesson in gun control

It is true that we as a nation 
can no longer afford to change 
our minds from one minute to

However, it is perhaps a

could have saved the life of 
John Lennon as well as other 
creative and vibrant people 
who have tried to make our 
lives a little bit better. 


Moral majority 

Dear Editors: 

Suzie and John Q. Public 
are all too often swayed by the 
media. Cartoons and critiques 
from self-appointed authori- 
ties notoriously malign good 
issues. Suzie and John accept 
the message of an editorial- 
ized caricature without chal- 
lenging the truth or checking 
out the facts. 

Editors read ideas from 
other editors or columizers, 
accept what they want and 
never check facts before 
rehasing' it. And so garbage 
piles higher around us. 
Now let's get a few facts, 
straight from the source. 

(1) Somewhere along the 
line someone has forgotten the 
actual meaning of Constitution 
and its "Preamble," our 
"Flag Salute," the National 
Athem, every piece of money 
and the National/State seals 
declare belief in Jehovah-God, 
Creator and Sustainer of our 
great nation. Carved into the 
walls of our Supreme Court 
are the Ten Commandments 
for righteous conduct regula- 
tion. And engraved indelibly 
and irrevocably on every heart 
of every American is the 
cognizance of Almighty God 
— else why bother fighting 
Him if He doesn't so exist? 

(2) The only separation of 
church and state our founding 
fathers considered was the 
establishment of a particular 
denomination as the State 
Religion similar to that in 
Sweden or England. If you 
hold yourself as a Judaeo- 
Christian person and vou vote, 

you are blending church and 
state; if you salute the flag or 
sing the "Star Spangled 
Banner," you are not 
separating church and state. 
The Moral Majority is a 
cross-section of all Judaeo- 
Christian America (with or 
without a church). We are not 
establishing any 3dnd of 
religion — only asking 
America to return to its 
founding principles of decen- 
cy, morality and. righteousness 
in conduct and education. 

(3) All of us are guaranteed 
"freedom of religion" but if 
we are being denied that right, 
as though the Constitution 
reads, "Freedom from relig- 
ion." We are guaranteed "no 
prohibiting of free exercise 
thereof; or abridging the 
freedom of speech" (Article I 
of The Constitution); but we 
have recently been denied the 
right to have voluntary prayer 
in our classroom. One student 
"felt uncomfortable," com- 
plained and all other students 
are denied the right — 
"prohibiting .freedom of reli- 
gion. ' ' But that is all right and 

(4) The Man of our 
editorial's last paragraph 
(Beachcomber, Nov. 17) es- 
tablished capital punishment 
when He announced, "Who- 
ever sheds the blood of man, 
by man shall his blood be 
shed; for in the image of God 
had God made man" (Genesis 
9:6. Remember, He is the 
Living Word and Author of all 
Scripture!). The Son of Man 

called His people to war 
continuously in history to 
oppose evil nations and evil 
forces seeking to destroy 
righteousness on earth, refer- 
ences too numerous to list. He 
came "not to bring peace — 
but the sword" against evil 
when mankind rejected Him 
(Luke 12:51). But when He 
comes to reign totally and in 
supreme sovereignty, there 
will be perfect peace, men will 
beat their swords into 
plowshares and learn war no 
more. Until then, "fight the 
good fight of faith!" 

(5) The prophets — read any 
of them for the facts— speak 
loudly and clearly against 
social evils and for social 
reforms. All society is clearly 
regulated in Scripture. Any 
departures from God's rules 
only bring disaster. We do 
care for the poor and those 
incapable of caring for 
themselves, for the orphans 
and needy widows; but not for 
the indolent, the wanton, girls 
who deliberately "have babies 
so the government will take 
care of me." We do not hand 
out unemployment checks as 
long as work is available in the 
"help wanted" columns. And 
it is the local community's 
responsibility to care for its 
own — rather than- losing 
money through a hundred 
hands of the bureaucracy. 

(6) Women were created 
unto honor and respect as the 
physically weaker ones in the 
androgenous relationship. In 
marriage, each submits to the 
other, loving one another as 
Christ loves His Body, the 
Church. They lead God-fear- 
ing industrious lives buying 
and selling with full confiden- 
ce of (her) husband (Proverbs 
31). They lead exemplary lives 
teaching and nuturing the next 
President or Billy Graham — 

what a responsible position! 
At all times, she practices 
"whatever you do, work at it 
with all your heart, as working 
for the Lord, not for men" 
(Col. 3:23). If men functioned 
in their God-given capacity, no 
woman would even think ERA. 
Jesus, the Man of God, 
said, "Let him that is without 
sin cast the first stone... 
"Love your neighbor as 
yourself... Go and sin no 
more" — and you, too, will be 
a part of the Moral Majority. 

Most cordially, 

Mary Stanton, Ed. D. 

Part time Instructor at PBJC 

Dear Dr. Stanton, 

Despite your allegations to the 
contrary, the editors of the 
Beachcomber do indeed check 
facts before "rehasing" them 
[around here we call that 
journalism]. Unfortunately, it 
appears mat you have not taken 
the time to check your facte. 

The constitution of die United 
States reads, and I quote: 

' ' Congress shall make no law 

respecting the establishment 

of religion, nor prohibiting die 

free exercise thereof." 

TMs passage does include 

"freedom from religion" as well 

as freedom of religion. This 

position has been consistently 

upheld by the Supreme Court of 

the United States, which exists 

solely for the purpose of 

interpreting the Constitution. The 

Christian Ten Commandments are 

indeed inscribed on the wail of the 

Supreme Court; what you fail to 

point out in your letter is that the 

Code of Hammurabi and the 

Roman Civil Code are also 

inscribed on the walls of the 

Suprme Court This does not 

imply that our society is ruled by 

any of these legal systems, 

although it is indeed- descended 

from them. Our society is ruled by 

the Constitution — that is why we 

have a constitution — if your 

assertion of biblical rule were 

true, we would have no need for a 
Constitution and a Supreme 
Court; we could rely on the 
Christian Bible and an Inquisi- 
tional Tribunal. Fortunately, that 
is not the case. 

The founding fathers were not 
Christians, at least not in the 
sense that your letter would 
indicate. They were predomin- 
antly pantheists and atheists, 
concerned with avoiding the Puri- 
tan extremism that had preceded 
them - the same Puritan 
totalitarianism that it would 
appear you are advocating. 

We are printing your letter out 
of a sense of community 
responsibility — despite the fact 
that we strongly disagree— and to 
give you a chance to air your 
views. That is the duty of a free 
press in a free society. We would 
not attempt to hamper your 
philosophies, nor would we 
attempt to abridge YOUR 
religious freedom. We would ask 
you to do the same and respect the 
rights of those members of society 
[i.e. women, gays, communists, 
Buddhists, etc.] whose views and 
morals are different from your

PBJC secures new chief; 
manager warms kitchen 

Monday, January 26, 1981 Beachcomber - 3 

By Michele Kurteff 

While the holiday season 
found most people out buying 
gifts and celebrating, two 
individuals were busy prepar- 
ing for their new jobs at PBJC. 

New Chief of Security 
Charles Kubinski will fill the 
void left by Harvey Bertram 
and Dave Gruender will 
replace cafeteria manager Joe 

A former police officer from 
Watertown, N.Y., Kubinski 
moved to Florida about seven 
months ago. Not familiar with 
the area, he was tipped off 
about PBJC through friends. 

Although he has been on 
campus a short time, Kubinski 
notes the security department 
is in need of change. 

I can see where a lot of 
alterations are needed which I 
intend to effect in the very 
near future. I am going to 
attempt to upgrade the

security department," ex- 
plained Kubinski. 

Aware that he would 
encounter many students, 
faculty members and admin- 
istrators daily, Kubinski plans 
"to get around and meet all 
the people because this is the 
only way we can operate. " 

Kubinski is married and the 
father of one son. 

A graduate from the 
University of Missouri, Gru- 

ender .is the man in charge of 
the cafeteria. 

Not happy, he had to 
increase the prices of many 
food products, Gruender had 
no choice because of the rise of 
inflation. "Soda has gone up 
from $2.88 a gallon to $4.52. 
Coffee and entrees have also 
gone up. I lowered several 
items like salad and burgers," 
he said. 

PTK pledge week ends

Wanted: Enthusiastic PBJC 
students who enjoy a 
challenge, can work hard 
when called upon, and don't 
mind an occasional keg party. 
This was the objective of Phi

Week, Jan. 18-23. During this 
time, Delta Omicron, the 
central campus chapter of the 
national honor fraternity for 
community and junior colleges 
was seeking new members for 
the winter semester. 

Eligible students are those 
who are currently enrolled, 
have accumulated 12 or more 
hours of study and have a 
cumulative grade point aver- 
age of 3. 2 or better. 

Although there is a grade 
requirement, it is clear that

organization made up of 

well-rounded students who are 
expected to become involved 
as much as possible in the 
wide variety of activities, both 
college and community related 
that the organization takes up. 
Among these are weekly bake 
sale, car washes, a blood drive 
a campout, a fine arts festival, 
a Gong Show and numerous 
other endeavors. As PTK puts 
it, "If it's fun and worthwhile, 
we do it." 

Demands on members are 
high but rewards are equally 
great. Members develop a 
closeness and friendship that 
lasts a lifetime. They have 
parties and get-togethers, 
attend state and national 
conventions, and generally 

have a good time. They also 
get a lot accomplished. Delta 
Omicron has been one of the 
top 10 chapters in the nation 
for the past two years thanks 
to the dedication of its 
members and sponsors. 

Jan. 23 was the deadline to 
join for this semester. New 
pledges will be initiated in a

However, anyone who meets

Arsenic and Old Lace 

By Bill Branca 
Staff Writer 

The Palm Beach Junior College Senior Group theater will 
perform "Arsenic and Old Lace" this Friday, Saturday and 
Sunday in the PBJC Auditorium. 

This is the first production of the Senior Group Theater that 
consists of actors and technicians over the age of 55. 

"Tickets are going well," said Jill Joyal, who is selling them 
in the PBJC box office Monday through Friday between the 
hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. 

All but the last three rows have been sold for the Saturday, 
Jan. 31 performance. There are still seats left for the Friday, 
Jan. 30 opening-night performance. All evening performances 
start at 8:15 p.m. 

"We've been so fortunate that persons with such expertise 
in acting, set design, carpentry and all the other stagecraft 
detials so important to the play came out for our first

Talking Heads remain in the spotlight 

Monday, January 26, 1981 Beachcomber - 5 


By BUI Meredith 

The Talking Heads are a 
band as hard to categorize as 
they are to criticize. Attracting 
a huge cult following as a new 
wave band upon their musical 
debut in '77, they have since 
leaned farther and farther 
toward funk. 

Al Green's "Take Me to the 
River" has given the Heads 
substantial FM airplay since 
'78, while last year's "Life 
During Wartime" was a 
bona fide new wave/ disco hit 
single. The song was taken 
from the album "Fear of 
Music," which itself was 
laden with funk rhythms. 

Not as much, though, as 
"Remain in Light," The 
Talking Heads' latest effort. 
This LP has a decidely 
funk/ African feel, and is split 
by the funk (1) and African (2) 

The funk side begins with 
"Born Under Punches," a 
reggae-ish and repetitious

number with choppy rhythm 
and wild, distorted lead 
guitar. Vocalist David Byrne 
interjects with some of the 
album's better lyrics, includ- 
ing "take a look at these 
hands... the hands of a 
government man... they're 
passing in-bet weenus. . . and the 
beat goes on." 

"Crosseyed and Painless" 
uses percussion to the fullest, 
producing "Remain in 
Light's" most danceable 
moments. Cowbell and wood 
block follow Tina Weymouth's 
fine bass line, as well as 
swirling backing vocals, key- 
boards and guitar. ' "The Great 
Curve" also uses a full 
barrage of instruments, but 
with less result. Trumpets and 
bongos kare buried under the 
layered vocals and dueling 
guitars of Byrne, Jerry 
Harrison and Adrian Belew. 

Side one's danceability 
carries over to side two 
momentarily with "Once in a 
Lifetime," the album's best 
African/funk crossover exper- 
iment. Swirling keyboards 
give a bit of a waterfall effect 
as the bass and vocals are 
highlighted. The lyrics are 
mostly nonsensical as with 
much of the album, but are 
witty- particularly when Byrne 
shouts "This is not my 
beautiful wife!" • 
"Houses in Motion" leads 

COlfcgt SOAR 

off the disc's African section 
with Byrne's talking intro- 
duction. Interesting trade-off 
vocals follow a simple bass 
and drum scheme, and a 
distorted trumpet solo helps 
break up the monotony. "Seen 
and Not Seen" contains an 
entirely spoken vocal, hand 
claps, and playful keyboard 
and guitar interjections. The 
lyrics, describing a man's 
trying to change his facial 
structure, are among the LP's 

The best of the Africa-in- 
fluenced tunes is "Listening 
Wind," which tells the tale of 
a native's revenge on the 
outsiders who ha' r e invaded 
his village. A tabla introduct- 
ion is followed by jagged 
guitar riffs and drowsy, 
harmonized vocals which 
haunt the listener. 

The weirdest tune, "The 
Overload," is saved for last, 
as usual. A slew of strange 
sounds come from everywhere 
but the droning guitar, 
although monotonous, has the 
best effect. 

While definitely for special 
tastes, "Remain in Light" has 
thus far been both a 
commercial and critical suc- 
cess. The list of guest 
musicians (Nona Hendryx, 
Brian Eno, Jose Rossy and 
Robert Palmer) is impressive, 
as is Brian Eno's crisp

production. The only people 
who may not appreciate this 
effort are the early Talking 
Heads fans. 

But what next? The Talking 
Heads have gone about as far 
as they can go with funk, so 

maybe an all-African LP? 
Whatever the outcome, the 
chances are that the next 
album will also be a good one. 
The Heads are one of the most 
innovative and least trendy 
bands in rock.

Staff Writer 

"The Formula" is an intrinsically 
worthless exploitation film, but the 
extraordinary efforts of Marlon 
Brando, Marthe Keller and John 
Gielgud manage to make it an 
entertaining experience in spite of a 
putrid script and a non-acting 
performance by George C. Scott. 

"The Formula" was written and 
produced by Steve Shagan, based on 
his trashy bestseller of the same name. 

John Avildsen, of "Rocky" and 
"Slow Dancing In The Big City" was 


Greetings! May the rings of 
Saturn bring warmth to your 
heart, and Uranus to your 
enemies. If there be any 
among you who has not yet

me to introduce myself. 
Beyond the great mountain, 
into the eclipse of night I live. 
My wife is the stars, and my 
mistress the Earth. Follow me, 
yes, into the geometry of 
triangular understanding. 

Virgo- Waste not; you heap 
good food in the cafeteria 
garbage cans, while other 
starve. The One of the night 
watches. BEWARE! 

Gemini- Try smiling, your 
brothers and sisters are in 
pain, and you can help... all 
men are equal. 

Capricorn- The salmon 
swims upstream. Listen to 
him, and rely not on the 
unworthy. You are wise. Note 
the pond of life. 

Cancer- Pardon my base- 
ness but; "Hit on a Libra, 
NOW!" Look around you, 
where does the pink glow of 
the sunset hide? 

Scorpio- Be silent, and 
listen for a change. The Earth 
revolves with or without you. 

Aquarius- Your independ- 
ence is strangling you. The 
crimson cavern awaits in 

Libra- If you want to mess 
with somebody's head, look to 
the hunger of Cancer. 

Taurus- Give a Piscts a 
break!!! You are breaking his 
big Dipper. Look to yourself 
for the help you need. " 

hired to direct (at least that's what the 
credits call it). The only noteworthy 
thing about Avildsen 's direction is that 
he manages to keep it moving fast 
enough to keep us from realizing how 
silly the plot is until we're out of the 

The plot is about a formula for 
synthetic fuel perfected by the Nazis 
during WWII and the concealment of 
this formula by the American oil 
companies to further their own 
financial interests. This in itself is all 
too believable, but the contrived 
circumstances which lead George C. 


Leo- The Stars say resist the 
draft. Look to the mild-man- 
nered teacher with hair of 
snow to help you. 

Pisces- Rely not on false 
stimulants. Nature has provi- 
ded the answer. 

Sagittarius- Break a leg. If 
you ever get tired of running 
in circles, try right angles. You 
will find the result is the same. 

Aries- Look to the protection 
of the Earth. The stars blanket 
the Earth, and the Ozone is 
still intact. Breath not the 
death of hairspray. 

Scott, an L.A, detective, to Germany in 
search of this formula are ludicrous at 
best. Scott, whose dramatic career is 
highlighted by such artistic accom- 
plishments as "Patton", "The 
Hustler," and "Dr. Strangelove, " is 
unfortunately rather insipid in "The 
Formula." He's playing the same 
self-righteous character that he 
portrayed in the abysmal "Hardcore": 
what was simply a cheap performance 
m 'Hardcore" is downright embarras- 
sing in "The Formula. " 

Fortunately, Marlon Brando is 
superb as the villainous oil company 

executive. Although only on screen for 
a mere 20-25 minutes, he completely 
dominates his performance— alone is 
worth the price of admission. Marthe 
Keller, of "Black Sunday" and 
"Superman" is quite good as Scott's 
German connection. John Gielgud is 
delightful in a cameo as a deranged 
Nazi scientist. 

Despite the occasional insipidity of 
Scott and a trite script, "The Formula" 
manages to be reasonably good, 
last-paced entertainment —just don't 
expect anything more.

What wilt the future hold fo 
Palm Beach Junior College? 


By Jim Hay ward 
Associate Editor 

You might have missed it, but last week, Jan. 
18-24, was the first annual Florida Community 
College Week. And Florida's oldest community 
college, Palm Beach "Junior" College was 
basking in the glory of its rich tradition. 

Now I'm not about to spew forth a 
long-winded cronology of PBJC's history; I'm 
sure you've heard all that before. Not that the 
school's history is not worth repeating. From its 
founding in 1933 to last year's half-mill 
referendum, PBJC has enjoyed a distinguished 
47 years. 

But what will the future hold? What changes 
will occur in the next 25 years? The following is 
a realistic look into the future at what could be in 
the year 2008, Palm Beach Junior College's 75th 

PBJC has divided into four separate 
campuses similar to Miami- Dade with PBJC 
South, PBJC North and PBJC Glades 
challenging PBJC Central for supremacy in 
academics, athletics and community service. 
The auditorium on the central campus was 
lenamed Watson B. Duncan III Auditorium 
following Ihe retirement of a great man in 1990. 
Enrollment topped 60,000 for the four facilities. 

Edward M. Eissey retired as president in 
1984 to run for governor. He lost, but returned 
to win the office in 1988. Eissey returned as a 
pait-timc physical education instructor in 1993. 

Alter realizing that the average student is 
over 30-years-old and a mature adult, the 

administration eliminated the attendance 
policy. Bolstered by new funding and facilities, 
PBJC won 27 state titles and 14 national titles in 
five intercollegiate sports. The Aquahol project 
in the early '80s produced a breakthrough in 
gasohol development. 

The Student Government Asociation was 
restructured eliminating past difficulties and 
giving the student body a strong voice in school 
policy. Dusty Rhodes took the head coaching job 
at a major university and quickly established a 
national powerhouse. Twelve of Rhodes' former 
players eventually made the major leagues. 

Continuing education continued to expand at 
an incredible rate. The college acquired vending 
machines with a special feature.... they worked. 
The basketball program licked its ineligibility 
problem by utilizing special counselors to work 
with athletes with grade difficulties. They also 
packed the gyms at the four campuses as a 
rivalry developed between the four colleges. 

Grades were done away with as student's were 
encouraged to study and learn at their own 
pace. The pass-fail system caught on and soon 
most state colleges adopted it. Creative arts 
were expanded to a point where PBJC was 
continually producing great artists, actors and 

By 2008, the paper this article is printed on 
will probably be obsolete and we will be living in 
a world of inconceivable technology. What part 
PBJC will play in the community is very much 
open to question. One thing is for sure, Palm 
Beach Junior College will forever serve its 
students in a big way.

Campus Combings 

Winter enrollment rises 

A spectacular 23.1 percent increase at PBJC South led the 
entire college to a solid 6.9 percent increase in winter term 
enrollment, according to Charles Graham, registrar. 

Overall enrollment, released by Graham, show 10,683 
students compared to 9,943 at the same point in the semester 
last year. PBJC South increased from 1,163 to 1,512. 

"An unusual feature of winter term enrollment" Graham 
said, "is that PBJC Central increased by 8.2 percent, higher 
than the overall percentage increase. 

"In recent years we have been accustomed to larger 
percentage increases at PBJC North and Glades, as well as at 
PBJC South, and an 8.2 percent increase at PBJC Central is 
unusual," Graham said. 

PBJC Central went from 6, 126 a year ago to 6,670 this year. 

Circie K wins bedrace 

PBJC Circle K was declared the winner of the Pepsi 
Intercampus Collegiate Bed Race. The victory, be default, 
means that Circle K will be sending a five-member team to 
further competition at the Daytona Speedway on Jan. 31. The 
racers' expenses will be paid by Pepsi and/or PBJC. If they 
win at Daytona, the Circle K team will receive a cash prize and 
a scholarship in their name to be given to a deserving PBJC

Wearing a number 15 green 
and gold jersey and covering 
center field on the baseball 
diamond, 20-year-old, sopho- 
more Nelson Rood gets the job 

Born in West Palm Beach, 
Rood has lived on Jupiter 
Island all of his life and hopes 
that wherever his future may 
take him he can one day return 
to the area. 

Rood started his baseball 
career at age eight and since 
then has won numerous 
awards, honors and all-star 

As a four year letterman 
fiom Jupiter Christian School, 
Rood was a walk-on freshman 
for the Pacer squad. 

Rood is greatful for the 
experience he obtained last 
season, and feels that because 
of it he is playing a much 
better game. "Last year the 
majority of the team was 
sophomores; the freshmen 
didn't get much of a chance to 
break themselves in at this 
level of competition. This year 
we've got a lot of talent and 
we're in one of the toughest 
divisions in the nation. 1 think 
a lot of our game relies on 
experience," Rood said. 

Rood also feels that a lot of 
the team's success is credited 
to coach Dusty Rhodes. 
"Dusty is one in a million. 
-Without his encouragement 
and influence, we wouldn't be 
half the team we are," Rood 

Although the NCAA hasn't 
offered scholarships yet, Rood 
has received several special 
interest letters from in and 
out-of-state universities. 

As a second-year business 
major, Rood's alternative plan 
to baseball is to own and 
operate a landscaping busi-

Softball state champions? 

Steve Beverly 
Sports Editor 

The PBJC women's Softball 
team will swing into action 

beginning Feb. 19. The team 
is headed by coach John 
Anderson, who is currently in 
his fourth year of coaching 

The Lady Pacers, 
the last year in which a 
PBJC women's softball team 
won a state championship was 
1974. However, that will 
change this year according to 
Anderson. He feels the team is 
so strong this year that they 
should take the state champ- 
ionship held at the University 
of South Florida, in Tampa. 

Currently there are 18 girls 
on the team and Anderson 
feels he will not make any 
cuts. The team practices every 
day for three hours on the field 
in addition to a one mile run. 
One of the five miles run per 


week must be completed in 
less than eight minutes. 

"We have no one lady who 
is a superstar that will win us 
the state title," Anderson 
said. "We have 18 stars that 
will capture the state 
championship. Our motto is 
every Pacer is a star." 

Twelve scholarships will be 
awarded this year which 
include books and tuition. 
"There is so much talent in 
the Palm Beach County area, I 
rarely go out of the county to 
recruit players," Anderson 

For the past three years the 
team has finished in the top 
five of the state, losing to 
eventual champions Dade 
South and Lake City. How- 
ever, Anderson feels that 
come April 23 in Tampa the 
Pacers will emerge No. 1.

Headed by coach Max Faquir and assisted by 
coach Tom Mullins, the PBJC men's tennis 
team begins its season on Feb. 14. Eight players 
will be chosen for scholarships, which include 
tuition and books. 

Steve Schaerer, Jeff Cockerham, Roger 
Marcil, and Mike Knowles are returning for the 
Pacers. The team will also incorporate two 
players from Finland and two from Chile. 

The. team practices five days a week. An 
average practice consists of running two to three 
miles a ■day in addition to two hours of court 
drills and playing time. 

The team will play 30 regular season matches 
as well as the district and state tournaments. 

"I feel we have a strong, consistent team 
from top to bottom," said Mullins. ' 'Our goal is 

to win districts and go on to the state 

The PBJC women's tennis team is ready to 
start its 1981 season. Victory at the national 
tournament last year in Midland, Tex. gives the 
team more incentive to win the title this year. 

Coach Julio Rive feels extremely optimistic 
about the new season. "My team is more 
dedicated than ever," Rive said. 

All of the women are strong, experienced 
players. Members of the team include: Beverly 
Corrbie, Gaby Irazabal, Ninka Paunovic, 
Andrea Rabzak, Lisa Shafer and Beau Wigley. 

The team will be playing a 20 duel match 
schedule. They will also participate in the Eaily 
Bird Tournament held at Miami-Dade South in 
February. They have won this tournament for 
the past two years.

DrafteeCall, not a 'Dumb Jock' 

By Kim Davis 
News Editor 

Eric Call, a recently drafted Pacer 
baseball player, totally shatters the 
"dumb jock" image in college sports. 
Call, who was drafted by the New York 
Yankees, intermixes a 3.1 scholastic 
ability with a .381 batting average. 

"He's an all-around type and those 
are at a premium," head coach Dusty 
Rhodes said about his star first 
baseman. Call, who was a 12th round 
draft choice by the Yankees this year, 
previously turned down an offer by the 
Atlanta Braves in his freshman year. 

"I was stunned," Call said when 
informed of being drafted. Not only 
was hd excited but so was his family 
who kept the telephone lines busy 
informing relatives of the news. 

Call, a Dade-North transfer and 
former Leonard High School graduate, 

has literally burned up the bases in 12 
games so far this year. Call has scored 
seven runs on eight hits, knocked in 
four runs and has one home run, all in 
21 times at bat. 

"He worked hard to get where he is 
and he's very dedicated. He's 
accomplished a lot," Rhodes said. 
"He's a good student and that's what 
people are looking for. ' ' 

Majoring in journalism at PBJC, Call

Trustees adopt college plan 

By Kim Davis 

News Editor 

The Palm Beach Junior College Board of Trustees 
adopted a college plan of 20 goals for improvements in 
their January meeting. 

The plan, developed by faculty members, 
administrators, and trustees, is devised so as to achieve 
B the goals in a five year period. 

One of the goals of the plan includes improving staff 
morale. The most important factor involved in this goal is 
to increase salaries at the college so as to rank PBJC 
among the top 25 percent of the junior colleges in the 
state on a salary level. Other factors involved in 
improving faculty morale include updating facilities from 
_ the millage project and improving the collective 

t bargaining process. 

Another goal in the college plan is to study the 
feasibility of computerizing the registration of area high 
school seniors by installing computer systems in all area 
high schools. The plan calls for the computer system to 
be installed sometime during the 1980-81 school year. 

The plan also contains a goal to offer all area 

graduating high school seniors in the top 25 percent of 
their class a full scholarship to PBJC. The scholarship 
will require the student to maintain at least a 3.0 
average. The goal will be accomplished through private 

A goal has also been developed that aims at 
measuring, understanding, and enhancing student 
retention The goal includes a computerized system for 
student profiles, academic and graduation information 
and an academic monitoring system. 

Other goals in the plan include the expansion of the 
activities of the Foundation and the Department of 
Resource and Development, the initiation of academic 
and student affairs related programs, and the 
implementation of construction piocesses on PBJC's 
north and south campuses. 

There is also a goal planned to assess the present 
educational needs of the community. The assessment 
will determine educational programs desired by the 
community and a revision or elimination of programs as 
research indicates.

Student of the month 

Miss Susan F. Drake, 18, daughter- of Charles and Dale 
Drake of Boca Raton, has been named Palm Beach Junior 
College South Student of the Month for February, 1981. 
Announcement of the recipient by the Selection Committee 
came following a nomination made by Mr. Stafford Mooney, 
Social Science Instructor. 

Susan distinguished herself by single-handedly organizing 
and implementing all phases of the recent "Silent Vigil" which 
was held on the Florida Atlantic University campus for the now 
released American hostages in Iran. Her efforts gave the 
community and the FAU and PBJC South students an 
opportunity to jointly express their concerns over this grave 

When Susan was contacted subsequent to the hostages 
release she said, "I am thrilled to pieces. Their freedom made 
the entire effort worthwhile and so rewarding. ' ' 

Susan will soon complete her first year at Palm Beach Junior 
College South as a President's Scholar. Her academic goal is 
the study of law and her career goal is international 
government service. 

Community scholarship 

Information has been received by the Palm Beach Junior 
College Financial Aid Office about the non-renewable 
University of South Florida (USF) Community College $1002 
Scholarship for graduating sophomores of community/junior 
colleges, according to Hamid Faquire, Financial aid director. 

Each participating community college will select its 
recipient, and applications — Graduating Sophomore 
Scholarship Applications — are available in the PBJC Financial 
Aid Office; the deadline for applying is Feb . 20. 

Students applying must (demonstrate superior academic 
achievement; leadership ability; apply to USF by March 1; be 
seeking a degree (a first-time summer enrollee/apphcant can 
be considered for the Fall semester award.) 

Applications for any other scholarships, grants, loans and 
College Work Program at USF must be submitted to the USF 
Office of Financial Aid before Feb. l.i

The PBJC Student Govern- 
ment Association (SGA), 
jolted in recent weeks by 
resignation and alienation, has 
regained its footing and is 
' 'Building a foundation for the 
80s," according to President 
Ed Rigolo. 

"We're sticking to the 
basics and setting a founda- 
tion to build on," Rigolo said. 
"I feel SGA has been 
operating in the 60s; we're 
trying to bring it up to date 
into the 80s." 

Vice President Bruce Mc- 
Dowell, Treasurer Todd 
Schupper and several senators 
have resigned recently due to 
conflictual differences. 

Rigolo announced the ap- 

pointment of Vice President 
Jim Lamb, who joins Rigolo 
and Secretary Shelly Meyer 
on the executive board. A 
treasurer has yet to be named. 
Three new senate members 
were also announced. Mark 
Pignato, Steven Terhzzese and 
Matk Miller bring the number 
of senators up to 10. 

Tiacey Ryan and Belinda 
Bray reversed their decisions 
to resign from the senate, 
mostly due to a change in the 
time of the weekly senate 
meetings. Rigolo moved the 
meeting time from 1:00 to 
12:45, allowing more senators 
to attend at least the majority 
of the meetings. Meetings are 
held every Tuesday. 

The remaining senators are 

Mark Stubbs, Deana Kepple, 
Al Benrubi, Rick Reinecker 
and James Poole. 

The SGA held its first 
mtercampus meeting Thurs- 
day at 2-00 giving Rigolo a 
chance to meet the various 
club leaders and get a better 
undei standing of how the 
students feel. "I'd like to see 
closer organization," Rigolo 

Plans for homecoming are 
moving along with clubs such 
as Phi Theta Kappa, Circle K 
and the Beachcomber lending 
a hand in the activities. 
Homecoming week comes to a 
climax with the Pacer-Broward 
Noith basketball game Feb. 
14. A complete homecoming 
schedule will appear in next 
week's Beachcomber.

Office of the presiden 
needs re-evaluation 

With the inauguration of a new 
president fresh in our minds it is time 
to take a long, hard look at the 
presidency. Not at the man who 
occupies the office, [although Mr. 
Reagan certainly could stand a 
thorough looking over] but at the 
office itself. Certain laws pertaining 
to the presidency and to the 
acquisition of the office are 
antiquated and should be changed. 

It is becoming increasingly evident 
with each passing presidential 
election that the method which we 
use to elect the president should be 
abolished. Election by the Electoral 
College is an archaic system that has 
outlived its purpose. 

The Electoral College was 
established in 1787 simply because 
those who conceived it felt the 
common man was not well enough 
informed to make a sensible choice 
for president. To remedy the 
situation they established a system 
which called for representation of 
each state by a delegation jthe size of 
which depended on the respective 
state's population] of well-educated, 
well-informed men who would elect 
the president. 

For the times, the system was a 
good one which served its purpose 
well. However, the introduction of 
instant mass communication has 
made the very reason the Electoral 
College was established obsolete. 
The public now has access to all the 
information necessary to make a 
sensible choice for president, 

although sensibility doesn't always 
enter into it. 

Under the Electoral College the 
votes cast in the larger states tend to 
have more importance than those 
cast in the smaller states. This fact 
alone is enough to discourage voter 
participation in the smaller states. 
And it was the Electoral College 
which made it possible for television 
networks to announce Ronald Reagan 
as the winner of the 1980 election 
while polling places were still open 
on the west coast. 

It is time to abolish the Electoral 
College and begin electing the 
president by direct popular vote. This 
would improve voter turnout as the 
public would know that they are more 
directly involved in the election 
process. Also, the voter in Rhode 
Island would know that his vote 
counts every bit as much as the 
voter's in California. 

Along with the abolishment of the 
Electoral College, lengthening the 
amount of time allotted for the public 
to vote would certainly increase voter 
participation. Every election high 
voter turnout is predicted and every 
election low voter turnout is the case. 
Why not leave the polling places 
open for three or four days? This 
method has been proven effective in 
other countries and would be just as 
effective in the United States. 

Having the voting spread out over 
several days would diminish the 
chances of low voter turnout due to 
bad weather and would provide the 

voter a much better chance of having 
time available to get to the polls. 
Another facet of having polling 
places open for several days that 
would increase voter participation is 
the fact that periodic news reports on 
which candidate is leading in the 
polling would encourage even more 

Another change necessary per- 
taining to the presidency concerns 
the term of the office. The idea of a 
one term-six year presidency is not a 
new one, but, never the less, is still 
a good idea. 

The problem with the present four 
year term with the possibility of a 
second four year term was made 
evident in the Carter administration. 
When elected, a new president must 
spend the first year of his term 
getting acquainted with the job and 
finishing off old business left by the 
previous administration. By the start 
of the fourth year of his term the 
president must concern himself with 
re-election and begin campaigning. 
This leaves- the president with only 
two years to actually do the job he 
was elected to do. 

The argument against a six year 

K'OftffcHfl *l*l 


Dear Editor, 

I would like to pass along 
information to the students of 
PBJC concerning Student 
Government. I resigned as 
senator on Jan. 16, 1981 
because I wanted to devote my 
last semester completely to 
studies. Problems in Student 
Government have occured 
which I could not devote all my 
time to and after pledging 
myself to the students I felt it 
best to resign. 

The students of PBJC 
should know that some 
members of their elected 
government have not been 
representing them properly. I 
attended many meetings when 
only six of twelve senators 
showed up. 

Students, your government 
is falling apart and it is your 
responsibility to find out why! 
You might try the Executive 
Board first. A definite 
reviewing of the E-board is in 
order to see the real problem. 

I do not feel it necessary to 
throw around names and 
positions but some people are 
not taking their elected 
positions seriously. I have 
witnessed the problem first 
hand and felt you should be 
informed as students being 
governed by the group. 

Thank you for taking the 
time and interest in reading 
this letter. This is a situation 
which needs your attention as 
students of PBJC.

Dear Editor, 

There's no better place to 
look for the transcendence of 
time and space than in Mr. 
Perez's French 2201 class that 
meets three mornings a week 
on the main campus. 

The class spends part of its 
time back in the 17th century 
with Moliere's comedy, "Le 
Malade Imaginaire. ' ' 

Not to be outdone on the 
presentation of events past, 
Mrs. Jones' Spanish class of 
the equivalent level, meeting 
the same mornings, drama- 

tized some recent American 

Ordinarily the class would 
be studying the conquista- 
dores of Spain's past, but 
current history took preceden- 
ce the day after the 
presidential inauguration. 

Mrs. Jones started out with 
a sentence about the event, 
then the class took over with 
each member adding a line to 
the story. The event was 
chronicled in Spanish, but 
here's how it sounds in the 
bilingual version. 

Dear Editors, 

I read the 12/9/80 issue of 
the Beachcomber and was 
delighted by Mr. Bill's 
semesterly letter. It reminded 
me of my classes with Watson 
B. Duncan last year. I am now 
a senior at the University of 
West Florida in Pensacola, but 
have one comment on 
education to make. Never in 
my academic career have I had 
so fine an instructor as 
Duncan. He generates excel- 
lence, accomplishment, beau- 
ty and life into everything he 

It was the humor of the 

article that struck me.but the 
lessons of a great man that 
have sustained my educational 
pursuits. Thank You Watson 
B. Duncan for your gifts to 
students who have the hearts 
and minds to see into your 
Romantic and Realistic vis- 

To each of you in either ENL 
2015 or ENL 2020, treasure 
every moment and absorb 
every ounce of Duncan that 
you may. The association will 
be meaningful now, but will be 
morally invaluable as time

presidency stating that America 
could get stuck with a bad president 
for an extra two years was answered 
with the forced resignation, under 
public and political pressure of 
Richard Nixon. It will always be 
possible to rid the nation of a 
president that is doing the country 
more harm than good. 

The argument against a one term 
presidency has been that America 
would be limited to only six years 
under a good president. While this is 
certainly a valid argument, it must be 
remembered that it hasn't been since 
Franklin Roosevelt that a president 
has enjoyed such an enormous 
popularity to warrant continuous 

It. is becoming evident that the 
executive branch of the government 
is slowly losing its equality with the 
legislative and judicial branches. If 
this trend continues there is a danger 
of the presidency becoming nothing 
more than a figurehead position as is 
the case of the Queen of England. 
The office of the president needs to 
be returned to the position of power 
and respect it was intended to 
command. The suggestions of change 
listed here would help to do just that.

Continuing education develops new center 

By Tina Lake 

Staff Writer 

In an effort to help students and the 
community increase their awareness and 
understanding of cultures unlike their own, the 
Palm Beach Junior College Department of 
Continuing Education has developed the Center 
for Multi-Cultural Affairs. 

The originators of the center, Dr. Elisabeth 
Erling and Dean Otis Harvey, invited 
twenty-five people from the community, who 
are of different nationalities, to serve as an 
advisory committee. Karin Roemers, President 
of Students for International Understanding, is 
the representative for PBJC, and serves as the 
committee's Secretary. 

The main objectives of the center include, 
"providing students and the community with an 
opportunity to broaden the international and 
intercultural experiences," and "to provide 

more effective inter-relationships between 
international students on campus. " 

How does the center plan to achieve these 
goals? The advisory committee meets twice a 
month to discuss ideas for activities that will get 
the students and the community involved. They 
are planning an International Festival to be held 
on campus. Also in the planning is a film 
festival, with two series of movies, in 
co-production with Norton Art Gallery. Some of 
the movies suggested include "The Godfather" 
and "America, America." 

The center is also discussing future plans for 
community lectures, dances, and musical 
recitals, all for the purpose of providing better 
ethnic understanding among the school and 

The center welcomes student's questions and 
suggestions. Please contact Karin Roemers 
through the Student's Affairs Office.

'Arsenic and Old Lace" was 
performed at the Palm Beach 
Junior College Auditorium 
over the weekend. This was 
the first production by the 
Senior Group Theater that 
consists of actors over the age 
of 55. 

Nancy Goodwin was very 
pleased with her groups 
performance. "Everybody 
worked very hard, we've been 
fortunate to work with this 
special group of people all of 
which are over the age of -55 
and come from across the 
country," she said. 

The actors performance and 
stage design was very 
professional and left a lasting

As for future plans, Bonnie 
has two trips planned. One 
trip is planned for Europe in 
May. She and her husband 
also plan to drive their trailer 
West ' 'to see all we missed the

Stevie Wonder's political 'Hotter Than July' 

By Bill Meredith 


Stevie Wonder never has 
and probably never will make 
a bad album, and "Hotter 
Than July" is no exception. 
Wonder seems to change 
moods with every LP, making 
each an almost entirely 
different creation. "Songs in 
the Key of Life", probably his 
best effort, had a warm and 
universal overtone, while 
"Journey Through the Secret 
Life of Plants" was cosmic and 

"Hotter Than July" con- 
tains each of these moods, but 
is dominated by the political 
spectrum- mainly the late Dr. 
Martin Luther King, to whom 
the entire inner sleeve is 
dedicated. While Wonder's 
lyrics certainly are up to par 
with those of "Songs in the 
Key of Life" here, the music is 
urgent, tight and very 
danceable (as usual). 

"Did 1 Hear You Say You 
Love Me" opens side one with 
power. A strong horn section 
and gospel-ish backing vocals 
are propelled by the hefty 
drumming of David Bowie 
slugger Dennis Davis, and the 
slide directly into "All I Do", 
with no pause, is a classic 

Written 15 years ago, "All I 
Do" is a basic semi-ballad 
using Wonder's keyboard 
rhythm and adequate horns 
and backing vocals. Although 
slightly repetitious, it is also 
touching and powerful- a good 
prospect for a single. 

The side sputters with the 
next two tunes, though. 
' 'Rocket Love" shows promise 
with its fine strings and 
acoustic guitar, but why do 
such lyrics as "Do do do, do do 
do, do do do, do do do" have 

to be printed on the lyric 
sheet? They're not even lyrics, 

Speaking of non-lyrics, "I 
Ain't Gonna Stand for It" has 
plenty. Rhyming verses end 
with "tellin' me" and "cherry 
tree", "by mistake- in my 
cake", "somebody said-under 
my bed" and "bodily harm — 
good luck charm" - moon/- 
Juneisms by Stevie Wonderl 
Very rare indeed. Wonder's 
country vocal stab is also quite 
awful, and the muffled steel 
guitar is unnecessary. 

' 'As If You Read My Mind" 
saves side one. Another great 
no-pause break leads into a 
rousing dance tune with one of 
those great Wonder harmon- 
ica solos. Dennis Davis' 
drumming is again crisp, as is 
the bass playing of Nathan 

The politicking starts on 
side two, immediately. "Mas- 
ter Blaster (Jammin') is meant 
to appeal to the Bob 
Marley-esque reggae fans, 
particularly its Rastafarian 
lyrics, which in essence say 
that reggae and the Rastafar- 
ian beliefs will eventually rule 
all. While too rhythmic to 
sound like pure reggae, 
"Blaster" is simplistic and 
repetitive, and slightly boring. 

"Do Like You" is entirely 
about Wonder's two children, 
who speak at the song's 
beginning and end (someday 
S.W. may make an album with 
nothing on it but his children). 
The tune swings along with a 
danceable flow, and boasts 
excellent horns, bass and 

After the kids babble at the 
end of "Do Like You", a 
politically-motivated "Cash in 
Your Face" pulses in. Good 
guitar and hand claps accent 

it's your return 

that counts! +™ 

Support (m 

March of Dimes^-N^*f 

the message, which concerns a 
desperate man looking for an 
apartment and the discrimin- 
ating landlord who uses any 
excuse to keep him out. It is 
probably Wonder's strongest 
political statements since his 
old standards "Living For the 
City" and "You Haven't 
Done Nothing". 

Any lyrical shortcomings on 
side one are erased by those in 
"Lately", perhaps one of Mr. 
Wonder's greatest ballads 
ever. The tear-jerking lyrics 
tell of his woman drifting away 
from him- "I'm a man of many 
wishes, I hope my premonition 
misses, but somehow what I 
feel my eyes won't let me 
hide- 'cause they always start 
to cry, because this time could 
be goodbye". Stevie's vocal 
absolutely soars above his 
acoustic piano- a flawless 

An up-beat "Happy Birth- 
day" salutes Martin Luther 
King Jr. and brings the LP to a 
close. A reggae-ish organ lead 
and chanted backing vocals 
encase Wonder's pointed 
lyrics, the point being that 
King's birthday should be 
declared a national holiday. 
Certainly a sincere salute and 
a valid point- as long as it's for 
the right reasons. 

More crisply produced and 
less of a blown-up project than 
his previous two efforts, 
"Hotter Than July" will at 
least bring Wonder another 
Grammy nomination, if not 
another Grammy. 

In a day when such soul 
superstars as Earth, Wind & 
Fire, the Commodores, the 
Jacksons, and Kool & the 
Gang are producing not funk 
but slick, overproduced pop 
(and the best funk is coming 
" from groups like Queen and 
.The Talking Heads), at least 
Stevie Wonder is sticking 
closer to his roots. And doing 
it well, as usual. 


Thought for today: We have 
40 million reasons for failure, 
but not a single excuse —

Getting up 

By Onnolee Hinson 

Staff Writer 

You can believe this or not, 
but there is a way to enhance 
the self-imposed ordeal of 
getting out of bed to be on 
time for your 7:30 class; For 
those of you who gave your 
body the courtesy of not 
choosing this earliest of 
classes, you are excused from 
reading further, but for you 
masochists, like me, who start 
each term with the idealistic 
rationalization of,- "I really 
need the class and it won't be 
that hard if I just set my mind 
to it, " please stay with me. 

If you're an alarm assaulter, 
try keeping the ungodly pest 
on the other side of the room 
and never leave objects that 
can be thrown near the bed. It 
is- usually while we are in a 
dream-like state that we kill 
the clock. We know not what 
we do. 

Don't ever abuse the 
morning spirits of the poor 

soul who takes the responsi- 
bility of getting you up on 
time. Whether it's your 
parents, sibling, roomie, or 
spouse, try not to insult their 
intelligence by saying, "I'm 
up, I'm up," when you are 
curled up in a bail under the 
blanket at the bottom of the 

One simple suggestion for 
saving time in the morning is 
to lay out your next day's 
clothes the night before so 
they will be ready for you to 
throw on or, better yet, just 
sleep in them. 

Finally, don't be unrealistic. 
You are not going to get up an 
hour .early to study for a test, 
or type your homework, or 
read an assignment. Come on. 
And anybody who promises to 
make breakfast for someone at 
this unnatural hour is without 
my pity. The only thing that 
would be worse than this 
would be one day having to 
teach a 7:30 class.

Duncan breathes life into book reviews 

By Jeff Falls 

Staff Writer 
' ' Inspiring reading. ... at a time when books by 
actresses are a dime a dozen; BITTERSWEET 
is a $50 gold piece." Those were Watson B. 
Duncan's final words about Susan Strasberg's 
autobiography BITTERSWEET last week at the 
Women's Club of West Palm Beach, where he 
gives book reviews every Friday at 3 p.m. 

Almost 100 people packed the small room at 
the Women's Club to hear Duncan speak, 
hanging on his every word for over an hour. 
Duncan would alternate his own capsulization 
with dramatic readings from the book, giving 
the review a dynamic theatrical quality that 
most book reviewers seem to lack. 

He received several sturdy rounds of 
applause at the conclusion of the review. Many 
in the audience were former students of Mr. 
Duncan's, Mrs. Theodore F. Borghaus being 
one example. 

Borghaus was a student of Mr. Duncan's 
in the mid-60s, and attends all of his speeches 
and reviews. Both of her children were also 
students of Duncan's. ' 'I would walk a thousand 
miles to hear Duncan speak" she says. 

A list of the February reviews and dates is 
printed below. The Women's Club is open to the 
public and admission is $3. Look for Mr. 
Duncan's interview in the next Beachcomber.

GiGi's offers authentic and 
affordable Italian cuisine 



As a transplant from a 
Chicago suburb and an Italian 
who devoures anything that 
comes from the pasta family, I 
panicked when I couldn't find 
a decent Italian restaurant. 

Recommended by friends, 
my final hope was a little 
neighborhood place in Lake 
Worth called GiGi's Italian 
Villa Located at 1626 North 
Dixie Highway, Gigi's is like a 
bit of Italy in South Florida. 

This delightful establish- 
ment offers it all- excellent 
food, friendly service and 
reasonable prices. 

Menu selections range from 
pizza, spaghetti, lasanga, and 
manicotti to chicken, veal and 

Soup, salad and bread 
accompany baked dinners and 
meat dishes. In addition, the 
meat eaters receive a side 
order of spaghetti to gorge 
themselves in. 

My favorite, ziti with 
meatsauce, comes with melted 
mozzarella cheese covering 
the piping hot plate. The 
serving is generous and hard 
to finish. 

A special childrens menu 
gives the little eater a chance 
to engage in the delicious food 
without leaving half of it on 
their plate. 

Cheerful service, complete 
with red and white checkered 
tablecloths, hanging wine 
bottles and grapes makes 
GiGi's environment a totally 
relaxing one. 

Check time need not be 
tramatic. A meal, drink and 
dessert would roughly run 
between $6- $7. Considering 
you get soup, salad and bread 
along with the entree the price 
is quite affordable. 

Baked dinners take approx- 
imately 20-25 minutes so if 
you're in a hurry these 
selections won't appeal to you. 
Get there early on 
weekends to insure no waiting 
and a space in the small 
parking lot. 

GiGi's Italian Villa is a 
discovery I am happy to have 
made. I was beginning to think 
I'd have to fly up north for 
some good Italian eating. I 
won't have to now with GiGi's 
practically in my own back

But her face was flat as a

How she could see without

She said that that's the way

Athletic Spotlight 

By Steve Beverly 

Sporti Editor 

Energetic, blonde, blue- 
eyed, and swings a mean golf 
club. This is probably the best 
way to describe Julie Kintz, 
currently a top player for the 
PBJC womens golf team. Born 
in West Palm Beach on June 
18, 1961, Kintz likes Florida, 
has been living here all her life, 
and has been playing golf for' 
many years. 

Kintz graduated from Card- 
inal Newman High School in 
1979 and was a top player for 
the Crusaders. Winning the 
Florida state championships 
her senior year is just one of 
the many honors which Kintz 
has had attributed to her. She 
is an All-American, as well as 
being a medalist in the Pat 
Bradley Tournament in 1979- 
80. She also finished third in 
the National tournament held 
in Hollywood Lakes that same 
year. In addition this past 
summer, Kintz qualified for 

the U.S. Amateur National 
The first tournament in 

which the team will participate 
in, will be held in Arizona on 
Feb. 14-18. Kintz qualified for 
this tournament on Jan. 29-30. 
"Last semester we only had 
five girls on the squad, 
however this semester we 
have six and it gives us more 
incentive to practice harder," 
Kintz said. Five girls qualify 
for each tournament and the 
four best scores of the five are 

Kintz feels she has an all 
around consistent game, and 
practices hard ever week. The 
team practices at either the 
Atlantis or Wellington country 
club, but she prefers playing 
the course at the President 
Country Club in West Palm 
Beach. The team usually 
practices every day for two to 
three hours, and they work on 

all aspects of their game. 
According to Kintz, most of 
the women have their own 
personal coach or instructor. 

Head coach Debbie Ruday, 
helps the team if there is 
something drastically wrong 
with their game. Ruday does 
not try to change their game, 
but attends practice and helps 
the women in any way she 

"I feel Julie has improved 
greatly from last year," coach 
Ruday said. "She trys hard 
and is very consistent. I feel 
that she is really devoting 
herself to the sport. ' ' 

Kintz feels that if the team 
can overcome their major 
opposition, Miami-Dade, they 
will have a good chance of 
winning the state champion- 
ships. She feels the team may 
also have a chance of winning 
the national tournament held 
in Hollywood Lakes. 

CunentJy a sophomore at 
PBJC Kintz's major is 
undecided. She hopes to 
attend Florida State University 
in the fall and play golf for the 
Seminoles. She hopes to make 
a career out of golf, and 

perhaps obtain a position on 
the professional tour. In view 
of her past performances and 
her constant enthusiasm for 
the sport, Julie Kintz may be a 
big name on the ladies Pro 
Golf Tour in the latter 1980's.

In July "of 1978, the PBJC 
athletic department gained a 
valuable asset to their 
program. The asset is Peggy 
Kunsman, currently the ath- 
letic secretary. Peggy has 
numerous responsibilities 
during the day. In addition to 
the regular duties of arranging 
appointments, typing, filing 
and answering the phone. She 
also takes care of messages 
going in and out of the athletic 
department. She negotiates 
contracts for home events, 
keeps up with the eligibility 
lists every semester and 
schedules the gym for classes 
and intramural events. 

Another big responsibility 
Peggy undertakes is being the 
sponsor for the PBJC 
Cheerleaders. She is in charge 
of selecting the cheerleaders 
and recruiting judges to 
choose the squad. She also 
travels with the girls when 
they go to any away games to 

cheer for the Pacers. Peggy 
feels the cheerleaders this 
semester are enthusiastic and 
she is encouraging them to 
promote more student partici- 
pation within the student 
body. "The only problem I see 
with athletics is" the lack of 
student participation in at- 
tending various games," 
Peggy said. 

Peggy attends all the 
basketball and baseball games 
that she can. However she 

admits that baseball is her 
favorite sport to watch. With 
what spare time she does 
have, she enjoys reading, 
sewing, and is an avid movie 

Tom Mullins, athletic dir- 
ectoi has nicknamed Peggy 

,J -Radar" due the fact that she 
always seems to be on top of 
things. Peggy serves an 
invaluable service to the 
athletic department and to the 
school as a whole.

Baseball improves as season progresses 

By Bruce McDowell 
Staff Writar 

The Pacers baseball team swept a 
doubleheader, 10-3 and 15-1, last week 
from Huron College of South Dakota. 
The Pacers increased its record to 
12-4-1, as they have won seven or their 
last 8 games. 

Against Huron College, PBJC 
collected 29 hits and 4 homeruns, but 
Bob Peyton, Fred Lovely, Dennis May, 
and Dino Maniotis. In the last three 
games, the Pacers hammered five 
homeruns, which is more than they 
collected in their first 12 games. And 
all five homeruns were made by 
freshmen. In the first game with 

Huron, PBJC pitcher, Kevin Stant went 
the full seven innings and only allowed 
six hits. 

"The pitching is starting to come 
around and I was very pleased with the 
pitching we had against Miami last 
week," said Coach Dusty Rhodes. The 
Pacers tied Miami in a 1-1 game in 10 
innings, as Miami is nationally ranked. 
The Pacers pitching staff, after 14 
games, has lowered its ERA record 
from 3.66 to 3.21 and found the strike 
zone, by throwing 60 % of their pitches 
for strikes. 

The team increased its batting 
average to .269, with 71 RBIs and 125 

hits. Eric Call leads the Pacers squad 
batting .419. Tony Jackson increased 
his batting average 44 points, from .289 
to .333, in one week and now leads the 
team in hits with 15. With 7 stolen 
bases, Nelson Rood leads the Pacers in 
the stolen bases department. 

This weekend the Pacers will play its 
home games at West Palm Beach 
Municipal Stadium Saturday, Feb. 7, 1 
p.m. they will play a doubleheader with 
the University of Central Florida. 
Sunday, Feb. 8, 1 p.m. the Pacers will 
play Florida Southern College in a 
single game. Last year, F.S.C. was 
ranked first in the nation in Division 11.

Basketball in final stretch

Staff Writer 

The PBJC men's basketball 
heads for the stretch run in the 
Division IV schedule this week 
with several thoroughbreds 
leading the pack. After 
Wednesday's 88-85 victory 
over Broward Central, the 
Pacers stood 4-3 in the division 
and 14-8 overall. 

One of the 14 wins was 
against Florida's No. 1 ranked 
team, Seminole Community 
College (20-1), in December. 
Division foes Miami-Dade 
North (fourth) and Broward 
North (eighth) seem to be in 
the drivers seat as state 
tournament time approaches.

PBJC golf news 


Brace McDowell 

"In the past fall competition 
we were not as strong as we 
needed to be. We need to be a 
little more competitive", said 
mens golf coach Jim Simon, 
while stressing his feelings of 
this years outlook. 

During the first week of 
practice which started last 
Wed., eight players tried out. 
Simon takes the top five 
qualifiers to the tournaments 
and foresees a possible cut if 
some of his players don't 

Returning to the team are 
lettermen Peder Herrstorm 
and Dan Larkin. The rest of 
the team are freshmen. Simon 
has his two returning players 

on scholarships and hopes to 
offer more in the future. 

Simon considers his team to 
be in one of the toughest 
divisions in the nation. "In 
Florida, I think you'll find 
more competition and talent 
than anywhere else in the 
country. Here college compe- 
tition is tough. A junior college 
has taken the division title for 
15 years in a row," he said. 

The team practices five days 
a week starting at 1 p.m. The 
practices consist of a basic 
routine beginning with special 
emphasis on driving, chipping 
and putting. After that they 
shoot a round of nine or 
eighteen holes and then come 
back for more practice on 
certain parts of the game.

An important proposal has 
been made to the State 
Student Financial Assistance 
Commission (SFAC) in an 
effort to increase participation 
in student work programs. 

The proposal will allow a 
greater number of college 
students to get "hands-on" 
experience in a job area that 
relates to their career major or 
a job located on campus. 

The proposal was slated for 
approval at the Feb. 2 meeting 
of the SFAC. Due to late 
additions to the proposal, it 
will not be approved until the 
March 2 meeting. According 
to board member John L. 
Cody, there are no problems 
expected with the passage of 
the proposal. 

Benefits of the proposal will 
not only help the student, they 
will help companies repre- 
sented by individuals and the 

Students benefit by becom- 
ing more employable with the 
experience they gain. The 
work program decreases 
attrition. Students with jobs in 
their field tend to stay in 
school longer. When students 
stay in school, less grant 
money is wasted through 

Companies are enforced by 
being able to see their 
prospective employees. Com- 
panies will spend less on 
recruiting money while im- 
proving the quality of their 
work force. 

The Florida Student Work 
Program aids the state in 
attracting business and indus- 
try. It also aids in retaining 
valuable human resources 
within the state. 

The student and the 
employer must' meet certain 
eligibility requirements. Stu- 
dents must have Florida 
residency 24 continuous 
months previous to the date of 
their enrollment. The appli- 
cant must be a full-time 
student and demonstrate 
financial need.

the student must not take the 
place of a regular employee.

responsible for the appropria- 
tion of $5.5 million for the 
academic year 1981-82. The

responsibilities of the FSFAC.

An unofficial homeco ming game program 


Homecoming festivities (if there are any) will 
, climax Wednesday night at the PBJC-Broward 
North basketball game, the last home game of 
the season. Hopefully, more than the usual 
number of spectators (usually about 50) will turn 
out for the action. So, for the benefit of those 
viewing the Pacers for the first time, here is an 
unofficial basketball program, spotlighting the 
key players and scouting the team:

Bumps in legal system need smoothing out 

Does our legal system serve 
the people? The answer in 
many instances is no. The 
number of cases that actually 
pass through our judicial 
system declines each year. 

The reasons why cannot be 
pinpointed to just one 
problem. Perhaps it is because 
too many judges issue 
extensions to attorneys who 
are never prepared for their 
first day in court. Or it could 
be because the system itself 
has taken on too many cases. 

Whatever the reason, our 
legal system, simply put, is 
not working — at all . 

Some have even gone as far 
as to propose that the judicial 
system in this country serves 
only its own best interests. 

There is the classic example 
of the Baltimore judge who 
needed jurors. He arranged 
for local sheriff deputies to 
find jurors on the street. The 
"prospective" jurors were 
threatened with arrest if they 
failed to show up in court. 

Great. We would think that 


our lawmakers and enforcers 
would have something better 
to do. 

Reform is needed and it is 
needed now. The question is, 
however, how can any of us go 
about it? 

First, a close examination 
must be made of the meanings 
of the words attorney and 

Supposedly, an attorney is a 
respected professional who 
provides a legal service to the 
community. Families and 
businesses should be able to 
place full confidence in the 
services that an attorney 

On the other hand, a judge

is supposedly the individual in 
the court who hands down 
decisions without any pre- 
meditated feelings of bias. 

If this is indeed so, then why 
did the Baltimore judge act as 
foolishly as he did. Has he 
perhaps forgotten that, at 
times, people's lives and 
futures depend on the very 
decisions that he delivers from 
the bench. 

Somewhere along the line 
our public servants in our 
courts have forgotten the 
rights that our constitution 
provides us. 

As soon as the legal 
community calls for proper 
reform, then we will have a 

judicial system that protects 
the best interests of the public 

and therefore truly serves the 

Benitar's a 'Hearthreaker' 

Passion in the heat of the night 


Staff Writer 

The beautiful and talented Pat Benitar has 
been in the spotlight for the last year and a 
half. The young rock superstar has produced 
two very smashing albums . * 

Benitar is somewhat soft vocally, but the 
unawareness of sudden intensity saturates! 
the atmosphere. Her first big bit single 
"Hearthreaker" teased the top 40 in the first 
few weeks of its existence. After a short 
period of time, "Heartbreaker" moved 
swiftly to the 20s and finally into the top 10. 

The crashing vibes of " SoSincere" and the 
soft tonal highlights of "My Clone Sleeps 
Alone" kept the album, "In the Heat of the 
Night," at ranking positions in the top 10. 
And it stayed there for the better part of the 
fall and winter of 1979 and going well into the 
spring of 1980. 

"Crimes of Passion" came outlast summer 
and it became an immediate success. 

Benitar finally satisfied her listeners. The 
album hit the industry like a snowball in late 
June with at least six hit songs. "Hit Me With 
Your Best Shot" started the album off on the 


right foot, presenting both intensity and a 
pitch of continuous highs. The LP vaulted to 
the top of the charts powered by "You Better 
Run," "Out of Touch" and the spectacular 
"Hell Is For Children." 

Pat Benitar's astonishing vocal works 
accompany a dance routine that keeps her 
listeners standing, clapping and away from 
concert hall and theatre seats. On stage with 
her sexy black apparel and lace stockings, 
Benitar rocks listeners for over an hour and 
usually returns for an encore. 

The young female vocalist will definitely 
touch the hearts and ears of young rock V 
rollers throughout the year. 

Benitar's success started in music shows 
and in the bar circuits across the midwest. 
She has reached the peak of the rock V roll 
industry and is hopefully here to stay. 

"In The Heat of the Night" and "Crimes of 
Passion" are two excellent, well produced 
album works. 

Anyone looking for smooth, continuous, 
easy-listening rock with instrumental and an 
occasional hard drum section will definitely 
enjoy Benitar's "Crimes of Passion". 

Dear Editor, 

I was compelled to write this 
letter of praise to your fine 
staff, as well as the fantastic 
editorial staff, just to say I 
think you guys are swell! I just 
love the human interest stories 
and I am indeed interested in 
them. Also, the sports 
columns are as informative as 
your ssplendidl news coverage. 
And as a result of the 
inspiration provided by the 
"Son Centemal," I have 

become a new man. I have 

many words that I could use to 

describe the editorials, but the 

one I chose was "provicimo!" 

or, "bravo!" for those who 

don't speak Italian. All in all, 

on a scale from one to 10, 1 

would certainly give the 

wonderful Beachcomber staff 

a "10+" Keep it up, you 

' 'journalists extraordinaire ! ' ' 


Father Stephano Luigi 

Jones III 

P.S., I have written the things 
you asked me to write for you, 
you cut-throat mudslingers! 
Now will you please release 
my family from captivity? We 
are honest Italian people; we 
have never done anything to 
you. Have mercy- it has been a 
long time since I've seen my 
wife and children. Again 1 
beg you - let my family go!

have a lepertory of three plays, to be aimed primarily at 
students in the fourth through sixth grades, and we also will 
play shopping centers," Meyer said. 

PBJC drama students, many from Meyer's Children Theatre 
class, will also be lending their talents starting sometime in

Styx has constantly been 
written off by the press as a 
mindless, childish, average 
American band. Many other 
rock bands have also received 
this sort of treatment in print, 
and many very unjustly, but in 
Styx's case the skeptics have 
far too often been correct. 

Despite early criticism, Styx 
made some good albums in the 
early and mid 70s and their 
popularity peaked with the 
1978 LP "The Grand Elus- 
ion." Another good album, 
"Pieces of Eight" followed, 
but it became increasingly 
evident that Styx was trying to 
appeal more to the audience 
that had made them super- 
stars - the young teenage 

Their 1980 release, "Cor- 
nerstone," contained some 
nauseating romantic drivel 
and unnecessary '80s out- 
looks. While many looked for 
much of the same in '81, 
"Paradise Theatre" is a 
surprise: more maturity with 
less romanticism, but not 
much better than before. 

A concept album, "Paradise 
Theatre" is flat almost from 
beginning to end. The effect is 
supposed to make you sad that 
Chicago's own Paradise Thea- 
tre was closed down and 
destroyed in 1958, but anyone 
who is not from Chicago or 
over 35 is going to care about 
that and this album won't 
change their sentiments. 
Slow and rather plodding 

Styx b ombs their 'P aradise Theatre' 


is a notch above "Corner- 
stone," but is still more flat 
and boring. 

With the exception of Chuck 
Panozzo, the blame cannot be 
placed on the musicians. 
Drummer John Panozzo is 
solid on all Styx albums and 
great in live shows, Dennis De 
Young is a solid keyboardist 

and guitarists, James Young 
and Tommy Shaw are very 
capable musicians. 

Styx' - main problem is the 
audience they have tried to 
attract over the past few years. 

The engine is there, but its 
malfunctioning ."Paradise 
Theatre," like Styx, is really 
nothing special. 

rock tunes cover most of the 
disc and provide some of its 
best and worst moments. 
"Too Much Time on My 
Hands" works mainly because 
of John Panozzo's offbeat 
drumming and the guitar work 
of James Young and Tommyi 
Shaw, while "She Cares" is 
acoustically lively and contains 
harmonized backing vocals 
and a fine saxophone solo. 

On the other hand, 
"Snowblind" uses an innef- 
fectively distorted vocal in the 
introduction, "Nothing Ever 
Goes as Planned" a basic bass 
line (a Styx trademark) and 
both use those infamous Styx 
high-pitched backing vocals 
which often sound like a group 
of castrated choirboys. 

Two rather unspectacular 
rockers grace either side of the 
album. "Rockin the 

Paradise" on side one is 
simplistic and only serves to 
showcase the guitaring of 
Shaw and Young, and side 
two's "Half Penny, Two 
Penny" also boasts excellent 
guitar and saxophone- but a 
moronic bass line. Styx bassist

Chuck Panozzo is just 
incredibly bad; probably the 
worst bass player in any major 
rock band in the world. He has 
about as much rhythm as a 

"Lonely People" is slow 
and melodic, with a powerful 
horn section and flashy 
keyboard and guitar work. 
Ironically, the album's best 
tune may be its hit single 
"The Best of Times." Nothing 
else really stands out, and 
hopefully nothing else will be 
played as often. 

"Paradise Theatre" is at 
least a stab at maturity by 
Styx, but it only shows that 
they can't successfully find a 
direction at this point. This LP

Ehcsztein predicts: 

You will soon wish Billy Carter was back. When 
he relieved himself it was on a sidewalk, and not 
on you. The president's new attack on inflation 
is going to cause the price of gas to go up. The 
stock market is falling. Food, clothing and 
housing are more expensive than ever. Wear a 
wet suit. 

Aries- Return to nature that which is nature' s. 
Plant a seed. 

Taurus- You are pragmatic, prosaic, pedantic, 
and probably pregnant. 

Gemini- The time is right for you to count 
your chickens. Hope none hatch. 

Cancer- Jogging shoes, vitamin C, and 
Brenda Vaccaro commercials make your 
entertainment complete. 

Leo- Your ' 'I hate Iran" bumper sticker would 
be more believable if you would slow down. 

Virgo- The composition of your good points is 
a concert in the Cheap Trick of life. 

libra- You wonder why human rights are no 
longer an issue in the new Washington 
administration. Who voted them into office; 
Labrador retrievers? Probably a Pavlovian 

Scorpio- Be prepared. The lights might go 
out. Try rubbing two Boy Scoutstogether. 

Sagittarius- Emptying cafeteria salt and 
pepper shakers on the tables delights your more 
intellectual side. 

Capricorn- This is a bad time to invest in a 
cowboy hat. Try disco lessons. 

Aquarius- You find it hard to take your 
ecology class seriously when it is held in a room 
with artificial lights, heat, and air conditioning. 
The plastic desks don't help either. 

Pisces- Being of an inquiring nature, you 
wonder why a college would build walkways 
which pour water on pedestrians when it rains. 

Ehcsztein speaks: 

The weapons that the people of the third 
planet have made are destructive beyond the 
understanding of even the leaders you have 
chosen. You cannot sit complacently in your 
home and assume that 3.5 billion years of 
evolution cannot be erased in one earth day. 
PLEASE! You must react to the present 
build-up of weapons. Imagine the power to 
destroy you now have. What will stop the future 
from blessing you with even greater weapons? 
React peacefully, but react. Your lives are in the

The illusion stands in front of 

And no one knows your name; 
You don't yet know what to do; 
But start to play the game; 
So you start as fresh as you 

And try to lay real low; 
You'll try to prove that you're 

a man; 
And try to make a go; 
Your years of work will pay off 

Your years of study too; 
When you're done you'll take 

no bow; 
No one cares but you; 
You'll try to start your life 

And not to hurt yourself; 
You can't remember where 

you've been; 
And clear away your shelf; 
You think of friends you used 

to know; 
And things you used to do; 
But now you see the way to go; 
And who to take with you; 
Your life will be quite frantic 

You won't have time to play; 
You'll have to find a way 

You really have to stay; 
You'll plan your life around 

your class; 
And never make a one; 
All things bad will have to 

Just rest when it's all done; 
You'll make your future plans 

right here; 
Or time will pass you by; 
And you'll choose what's held 

And really have to try; 
You'll love, you'll cry, you'll 

hope, you'll hate; 
And never miss a one; 
You'll run, you'll sleep, you'll 

sit and wait; 
But always having fun; 
So just relax, sit back and rest; 
Not too much can go wrong; 
All you need is to do your best; 
It won't go on for long; 
This is your chance to make it 

Don't be scared to step out; 
Now is the time to find the

The Song of the Night 

In my chamber, all is still, 
my dreams, yet to take flight. 
A cool breeze flows from my sill, 
followed by the Song of the Night. 

There's the sounds of the racers 
touring the famous public beach. 
Barely a mile away to my ear, 
these sounds race to reach. 

Even farther away, the trains, 
practicing their one-note scale. 
Seemingly one right after another, 

chasing each other by rail. 

Through the palms, rolls the breeze, 
sounding like a bird in flight. 
Along with the rest, the crickets, 
chattering with all their might. 

My eyes are closed now, 
having given up their fight. 
Sleep finally arrives, leaving behind 
the Song of the Night. 

Jeff McDowell 


Unnatural predilections. 

(Romantically speaking) 

An aesthetic attraction toward artists in general; 

You in particular. 

A moment of madness at a midnight rehearsal, 
Coffee, cigarettes and short conversations. 
"It doesirt have to be this way!" you say, and 
Though we both know it does, we offer 
malnourished smiles 

And quietly ponder stage-centered frustrations. 
And afterwards with the houselights down 
' We question these rehearsals — of lines, loves 

and lives; 
We question our motives — both offstage and 
We question our questions and ignore all the

The Blues Brothers visit the South Florida Fair 

By Jake and Elwood Blues 

Special to The Beachcomber 

Dig. Like when we wuz 
growin' up at St. Helen's of 
the Blessed Shroud Orphan- 
age in Calumet City, there 
was nuthin* like the SFF 
(South Florida Fair) to keep us 
out of trouble. We wuz doing' 
a gig in Yeehaw Junction 
when word got to us that the 
SFF was cool. Our main dude 
and fellow hambone, Wayne 
Cochran, said the place was 
really where it's at so we and 
Blue Lou, Duck, Matt, and 
The Colonel got droned and 
checked it out. 

Besides an occasional red- 
neck gettin' on our case, the 
night was cool. Elwood just 
sang "Rawhide" and the 
rednecks became our buddies. 
The "Swiss Bob" was far-out, 
almost as grand as a bit of 
juju. The jerk who guessed 
weights, birthdates and ages, 

was a chowderheaded stiff, 
though. He couldn't guess our 
age and all we won wuz some 
sorry stuffed animal. We tore 
that sucker up and fed it to 
little Ricky Donovan, the 
world's smallest dude. 

The clown on the platform 
thought he wuz a wise guy, 
making fun of our suits. Hope 
he likes his cement overcoat. 
The food was bad (that means 
good in jive talk, turkey), 
especially the toast and whole 
fried chickens. Didn't have no 
R & B tunes at the music tent. 
Some John Lee Hooker or Cab 
Calloway would have- been 

Since we got out of Joliet, 
we've been kinda layin' low, 
but when The Beachcomber 
offered us this free publicity, 
we couldn't pass up the 
chance to rap. Since the big 
gig at the Palace Hotel, we've 
been tearing up the small 


We haven't been back to 
Chi Town in a while, mostly 
because Jake don't want to see 
the Penquin again. We are 
goin' back, though — when 
Curtis needs our help with the 

Some of the rides at the SFF 
were top-notch. Jake almost 
lost his hat on the 
"hoop-the-hoop." There 
wasn't no alcohol on sale, 
which was a bummer. We 
brought our own Mad Dog, 
though, so we managed. 
Overall, the scene was boss; 
the people cool; the midway 
mean; and the town wild. We 
might even come back to the 
SSF next year, bob, bow, bow.

Good rock 'n' roll is hard to 
come by these days, especially 
with upcoming fads like "punk 
rock" and "new wave" 
making their way up the 
charts. Good rock is just hard 
to find. Most of our modern 
day rock groups produce 
either boring or non-descrip- 
tive music. Where is the 
electrified intense feeling of 
old rock? Or, how about the 
shouting and side shows that 
accompanied those 12 strings? 
Todays rock is just plain dull. 

There's an old band in town 
that's creating new intense 
hard rock. After becoming 
quite popular in the mid-70s 
with their hit single "T.H.C." 
AC DC has been producing 
top-quality music. It didn't 

stop there. At the end of 1978, 
they came out with their 
"Highway to Hell" album and 
its hit single of the same 
name. Their work stayed on 
the charts most ofohe year. 

Their newest, "Back in 
Black" overran the hard-rock 
scene last year. A smashing 
success from the beginning 
and also well produced, "Back 
in Black" exhibits the highs 
and lows of old-time rock. 

Although their music 
doesn't top Led Zepplin, Deep 
Purple or Black Sabbath, the 
album was put together with 
an intensity that clearly passes 
the "hard rock test." Some of 
the album's hit singles are, 
"Back in Black," "You Shook 
Me All Night Long," "Rock'n' 
Roll Ain't Noise Pollution," 
and others. The overall album

is excellent. 

Already a year old, the 
album's progress and the 
group's popularity are on the 
increase. Pulling their efforts 
together in 1980, AC DC made 
"Back in Black" one of rock's 
early-late greats.

Graham came to PBJC in

to come to PBJC not only 
because of the basketball team 
but also for the location. "It's 
a nice place to live and our

Union narrows charge 

Management's rights remains key issue 

By Kim Davis 

News Editor 

Union officials narrowed an 
unfair labor practice charge 
filed by the United Faculty 
against Palm Beach Junior 
College to one issue ill the 
Feb. 10 hearing before the 
Public Employees Relations 
Commission (PERQ. 

C. Anthony Cleveland, 
attorney for the union, held 
prehearing conferences in the 
opening hours of the hearing 
in an effort to clarify the 
charges against the college. 

After much deliberation, 
Cleveland said that the charge 
had been confined to only one 
issue. According to Johnathan 
Koontz, spokesman for PBJC, 
Cleveland read the following 
for the hearing record: 

"Palm Beach Junior College 
failed to bargain in good faith 
by maintaining a manage- 
ment's perogatives clause to 
the point of impasse.... and by 
conditioning salary and other 
agreed upon items upon the 
forced acceptance of the 
management's perogatives 
clause... which amounts to 

coercion and renders further 
collective bargaining imposs- 

Hearing officer Richard 
Donelan accepted the com- 
plaint. The key issue is the 
management's rights clause 
which has been the major 
source of the impasse situation 
during the contract negotia- 

The union claimed that the 
PBJC Board of Trustees 
agreed to a 9.5 percent salary 
increase if the union would 
agree to the management's 
rights clause. 

James Adams, acting as 
attorney of record for the 
college to allow Jesse Hogg 
the ability to testify, claimed 
that the union had not voted 
on a ratification vote on the 
proposed contract and that 
neither party has asked for a 
bargaining session since 
November was accepted as 
fact for evidence by Donelan. 

Donelan gave both sides 20 
days to file briefs with the 
PERC. Donelan also said that 
within 25 days his findings 
would be filed with PBJC.

Legal age 19; Bennigan's 21; Why? 







A recent ruling by the 
Bennigan's Tavern organi- 
zation puts legal drinking age 
adults "out in the streets" 
after 9 p.m. 

The much-enforced policy 
forbids everyone under the 
age of 21 from entering the 
establishment after 9 p.m. 
unless accompanied by a 
parent. This is applicable 
seven days a week. 

Two of the contributing 
factors toward the change 
can be pinpointed to past 
vandalism problems and 
poor tipping from the 
teenage sect. Although these 
are valid complaints it comes 

with the territory and should 
be expected by the manage- 
ment of any restaurant or 

One Bennigan's employee 
cited "punks in the parking 
lot, disruptive construction 
workers and low gratuities as 
examples of prior problems. 

However, this worker be- 
lieves the ruling to be unfair. 
"It's discrimination against 
teenagers," the source said. 

As stated above, the 
management's side can well 
be appreciated, but there's 
another side that must also 
be examined. 

The capabilities of a 
19-year-old as far as 
destruction and disruption 
goes can be equaled and 
surpassed by a person who is 
21 or older. A teenager can 
leave a poor tip just as easily 
as one who is 21 . 

It's difficult to conceive 
that the three-year age 

Photo by Ted Hurt 

separation is going to 
eliminate furture disturb- 
ances at Bennigan's. There 
are no age limitations for 
vandalizing and leaving 
unreasonable tips. 

What a shame that the 
actions of a few childish 
individuals has to spoil it for 
everyone else. 

Critic critiqued 

Dear Editor, 

I am writing this letter in 
response to Bill Meredith's 
critique in last weeks 

I do not know what 
"press" Mr. Meredith has 
been reading, but I have 
seen nothing condemning 
Styx as a "mindless, 
childish, average American 

Concerning Styx' attempt 
to appeal to "the young 
teenage group, their main 
problem," observation of 
concert attendance will show 
the group's appeal to a 
variety of ages. 

In my opinion, their 
passage to maturity came 
with the album "Equinox," 
circa 1975. The group has 
since maintained a high level 
of both technical skill and 
artistic creativity. 

It appears that Mr. 
Meredith bases his critiques 
on a faulty premise; that 
romance has no place in rock 
music. On the contrary, 
romance has been the 
cornerstone of rock music 
throughout its history. Wit- 

ness Elvis, The Beatles, and 
Pat Benatar (ask Mr. 
DeCaprio) as cases and 
point. As to equating 
romance to "drivel," Mr. 
Meredith has my profound 

Sincerely yours, 
Rick Rienecker 

Mr. Beinecker, 

I don't need your pity or 
anyone else's. If you haven't 
seen Styx criticized in print 
then you haven't read their 
reviews in professional 
publications. As far as 
concert attendance, you 
should know that many 
people are attending only 
because there is a concert. 
They don't care who the 
group is. It's a good excuse 
to get loaded. 

I don't mind you 
criticizing my writing, but 
don't criticize me. You make 
it sound like I attack all 
romance in rock music, 
which means that you 
haven't read all of my 

Romance does indeed 
have a place in rock music, 
but I don't think songs like 
"Babe" do. And I certainly 

don't think a serious rock fan 
could compare Pat Benatar 
with artists like Elvis and the

Dear Editor, 

I read the editorial in last 
week's Beachcomber con- 

cerning the legal system. I 
feel there is a problem in the 
court system and do not see 
anything getting done about 

The American public 
surely does not have to be 
reminded about the crime 
epidemic that is sweeping 
the country. 

Most likely, one out of 
every four persons has been 
a victim of some sort of crime 
in the past year. 

I believe the problem is in 
the court system. The courts 
serve as the guardians of 
liberty, and they must 
punish those who break the 

A couple of weeks ago, 
U.S. Supreme Court Chief 
Justice Warren Burger said 

that the justice system itself 
may be exacerbating the 
problem. Even when crimin- 
als are caught he said, "bail 
policy is often too lenient, 
cases take too long to come 
to trial, sentences • when 
imposed /nay be too light and 
the appeals process drags on 
too long." 

For the Chief Justice to 
come out and accuse the 
courts of not doing their job 
surely means there is a 
problem. Let's see if 
something gets done soon. 

Who knows, we may have 
to bring back capital 
punishment. After all, noth- 
ing else seems to be

More than 80 people 
including administrators, em- 
ployers, educators, counselors 
and students attended a 
two-day PBJC cooperative

educational institutions as well 
as our own Co-op education at 

Another contributer to the 

conference was Dr. James W. 
Wilson, director of the Co-op 
Education Research Center at 
Northeastern University in 
Boston. Wilson spoke on 
co-op education: past, present 
and future, tracing its 
philosophy and history. 

Also included as a source of 
information as well as 
entertainment was the film ' 'A

why it is "good business" to 
hire those with disabilities and 
how educators can help the 
handicapped enter the main- 
stream of the working world.

Circle K competes at Daytona 

By Michele Kurteff 


Finishing second in the 
best- decorated division, and 
11th out of 12 teams in racing 
competition, the Circle K 
bed-race team faced mechan- 
ical problems Jan. 31 at the 
Daytona International Speed- 

The illness of one team 
member wasn't trouble 

enough for the Circle K team. 
Immediately after take-off, the 
front wheels off the bed began 
to wobble. 

The crew stayed at the 
Daytona Holiday Inn courtesy 
of Pepsi-Cola, sponsor of the 
weekend-long event. 

In other news, Tom Voltz 
resigned as president in the 
early part of January because 
he did not feel he was running 

the club to the best of his 
ability. Tom Edwards was 
elected the new chief on Jan. 

Last month, eight club 
members attended the Yall 
Conference in Alabama. At 
the meeting Circle K groups in 
the southeast portion of the 
country gathered to hear 
speeches and get ideas for 
service projects.

Journey 'Captures' a hit with live L.P. 

Monday, February 16, 1981 Beachcomber-5 

Steve Beveily 
Sports Editor 

Originally from San Fran- 
cisco, Calif., the five-man 
band Journey is a top group in 
the rock industry. To date, 
Journey has released six 
studio albums, one greatest 
hits collection and their latest 
live album, "Capture," a 
definite hit. 

Like their music, Journey 
has changed since their 
beginning in 1974. Currendy 
the band is on their third 
drummer and second lead 
singer. After their first 
drummer George Tickner quit 
the band, the talented Aynsley 
Dunbar handled the drums 
and percussion for the band 
through the "Infinity" L.P. 
Dunbar left the band and is 
currently playing for Jefferson 
Starship. Steve Smith replaced 
Dunbar, and although not as 
talented as Dunbar, he is an 
adequate drummer. The band 
began with lead singer Robert 
Fleischman who stayed with 
the band through the third 
L.P. "Next'-' Then Steve 
Perry captured the tide of lead 
vocalist and has been a 
determining factor in Journey's 

The most talented member 
of the band who has been with 
Journey since the beginning is 
lead guitarist Neil Schon. 
Schon is probably one of the 
leading guitarists in the world 
today. He turned down an 
offer to play for Eric Clapton in 
favor of a slot playing lead for 
Santana. Schon is nearly as 

talented as the master 
himself, Carlos Santana. 

The bass guitarist, Ross 
Valory, is formerly of the 
Steve Miller band and does an 
adequate job covering the 
bass. His antics on stage adds 
to Journey's excitement. 

Gregg Rolie, also from 
Santana, is a master on the 
keyboard and the piano.Rolie 
has tenatively quit the band on 
concert tours, but he may stay 
on and cut studio discs. 

Side one of "Capture" 
opens with "Majestic" from 
the "Evolution" L.P. After a 
short guitar and drum 
exchange, the band goes into 
"Where Were You" from - 
their latest studio album 
"Departure" Schon on the 
guitar and a slight piano influx 
make for an exciting opening 
number. They then go back to 
their "Evolution" albums with 
"Just the Same Way." Next, 
Schon and Smith exchange 
guitar and drum leads on 
"Line of Fire" from their 
"Departure" L.P. The band 
then plays one of their hit 
singles about their hometown 
San Francisco, "Lights," from 
what is probably their best 
album "Infinity.'' "Lights" 
is one of the better-done cuts 
on the album with clear, crisp 
vocals, as well as a short, neat 
guitar solo by Schon. Side one 
ends with "Stay Awhile" from 
the "Departure" L.P. 

Side two begins with Perry 
informing the crowd in Detroit 
that they are being recorded 
for a live album. The crowd

goes into a frenzy and they do 
a cut from their "Evolution" 
album, "Too Late." Next, 
they play an unrelased single 
called "Dixie Highway." This 
new cut sounds like old 
Journey. If "Dixie Highway" 
is any indication of the 
potential for their next studio 
album, it rould promise to be 
one of the better Journey 
albums released. Journey then 
goes back to "Infinity" with 
"Feeling that Way." The 
guitar and back-up vocals 
make this cut the best on side 
two. The side is finished by 
"Anytime," also from "Infin- 

Side three opens with "Do 
You Recall" from the 
"Evolution" L.P. Then, Jour- 
ney bends away from their 
classical rock style by playing 
a blues tune, "Walks Like A 
Lady" from their "Departure 

Next, the highlight of the 
double- live album occurs; 
Valory attempts a~bass solo 
with drum assistance, starting 
off strong but getting weaker 
as he continues . However, the 
session is saved by a 
four-minute drum solo by 
Smith. "Machie Gun" Smith 
outdoes himself with a quick 
steady beat and shows he has 
potential for playing the 

Side four begins with 
another recent single, "Lovin, 
Touchin, Squeezm' ' from their 
"Evolution*' L.P. Next, their 
biggest hit from "Infinity" 
and perhaps the best song 
Journey has ever comprised, 
"Wheel in The Sky" is 
performed. However, the 
vocals are slightly drowned 
out by the searing guitar and 
drum leads. Then, their 
biggest money-making single, 
from the "Departure" L.P. is 
performed "Any Way You 
Want It." This song is done 
well but is too commercial for 
true Journey fans. The album 
is ended by another new 

unreleased single, ' 'The Party 
Is Over," which will appear on 
their next studio album to be 
released within the next year. 
This song is comprised of 
vocal leads and has potential 
to be a hit. 

The double live album 
"Capture" is a very strong 
album. It has the class and 
professionalism of the "Queen 
Live" L.P. and should be 
appreciated by Journey fans. 
In this era of rock when "teeny 
bopper" bands such as AC DC 
and Kiss produce "tasteless 
noise," it is refreshing to hear 
the talented and innovative 
sound of Journey.

Soon you'll have your associate's degree. 
And if you're thinking of continuing your education 
you know just how expensive that will be. 

But consider the Army. In the Army, if you 
participate in the Veterans' Educational Assistance 
Program (VEAP), you can accumulate $15,200 for 
college in just two years. 

That's significant for two reasons. Obvi- 
ously, that's a lot of money. But what you 
may not have realized is that two years 
is the shortest military enlistment avail- 
able. Only the Army can offer you both. 

VEAP is a great way to make it 
on your own. Since it's not a loan, you 
won't need a co-signer or collateral. And 
you'll never have to worry about making 
payments after graduation.

Anne Murray shines without glitter 

Anne Murray, considered a 
star who shines without 
glitter, is scheduled to 
perform at Sunrise Musical 
Theatre Thursday through 

"No way," she says, "will I 
sacrifice my family life for my 
career. I want both and I'm 
trying to have both, but it 
must be on my terms. ' ' 

This kind of down-home 
attitude reaches across the 
footlights of theatres crowded 
with Anne Murray fans. As 
the second decade of the 
blonde singer's career begins, 
she has collected 19 American 
chart hits, two Grammy 
Awards, one platinum and five 
gold records, attracted count- 
less devoted fans from Monte 
Carlo to Minneapolis and

successful every year. 


Murray was born and raised 
in the coal mining, town of 
Springhill, Nova Scotia, grad- 
uated from the University of 
New Brunswick, taught high 
school physical education and, 
while teaching, became a 
semi-regular on the Halifax 
CBC television show, "Sing 
Along Jubilee." She later 
married her TV producer, Bill 

"What About Me," Mur- 
ray's first album in 1968 led to 
a recording contract with 
Capitol Records. In 1970, she 
had her first hit single, 
"Snowbird," which became ie 
the first U.S. gold record ever 
awarded to a female Canadian 
artist. Soon Hollywood beck-

By what kind of Power driven? 
The best is the first taken, the

The poor the more poverty 

What is the reason for some to 

so suffer, 
While others small portioned 

of pain? 
What is the purpose? 

Continue the fight? 
Ambition so easily slain. 
I know of this world, my 

existence and life, 
I've witnessed the carnage, 

been shown; 
Lust raises its head, hate 

blows a horn, 
We reap what the devil has 

I force my eyes open and 

turning to stone; 
A pillar of salt but I see; 
The world takes my best and 

spits on the rest; 
Leaving a total of what for me?

Athletic Spotlight.. .Bo Wigley, a champion 

By Steve Beverly 

Sports Editor 
Playing tennis since age 13, 
Bo Wigley is a dedicated, 
ambitious PBJC women's 
tennis player. Wigley is a 
native Horidian and was born 
in Belle Glade on Nov. 16, 

Wigley played on the varsity 
squad at Glades Day for five 
years. She secured the 
number one position for four 
seasons while playing for 
Glades. One of her accomp- 
lishments while playing high 
school tennis was capturing 
the district 11 singles 
championship in addition to 
the Glades team winning total 
combined points. After dis- 
tricts, Wigley and her team 
competed in state competition 
in Gainesville. 

A returning letterman for 
the women's tennis team, 
Wigley sercured the number 
four spot for the Pacers last 
year, and reached the quarter 
finals at the national tourna- 

ment. Because of her 
performance last year, she was 
named All- American. 

Wigley is very serious about 
her tennis. In fact she recently 
took a semester off school to 
go to camp at the Ballettieri 
Tennis Camp in Brandenton, 
Fla. This is one of the most 
physically taxing and de- 
manding camps in our country 
today. While attending the 
camp, Wigley was on the court 
for seven hours a day, in 
addition to a weight program 
and cardiovascular condition- 

The strongest part of 
Wigley's game is her 
forehand. Being a lefty, her 
forehand is an explosive 
weapon for down-the-line 
passing shots. 

Wigley respects coach Julio 
Rive both as a person and a 
coach. "I am a very competa- 
tive person, and when I lose I 
get very upset," Wigley said. 
"However, coach Rive is 
always there telling me not to 

worry about it when J lose, and 
praising me when I win. ' ' 

Wigley is off to a good start 
this season, winning her First 
singles match against Flager 
College, 6-2, 6-3. She 
participated in an early bird 
tournament on Feb. 10-12. 
Wigley feels the team is very 
strong this year from top to 

Wigley is currently a liberal 
arts major and may turn her 
sights toward nursing. She is 
considering Vanderbilt and 
University of South Florida to 
further her educational goals. 
Her hobbies include photog- 
raphy and reading in addition 
to playing tennis and 
attending school. 

Wigley is a devoted and 
aggresive player and may 
pursue tennis as a career if the 
opportunity arises. With her 
talent and skills she is an 
asset to the team and will most 
likely be active in tennis for 
many years to come.

Community colleges debate exams 

\ i 


Staff Writer 

In future years, students 
may have to take mandatory 
entrance and exit exams 
before being accepted into, or 
transferring from PBJC or 
any Florida community col- 

About 12 members of 
PBJC's faculty and adminis- 
tration met Tuesday with John 
D. Bencich of Brevard 
Community College to discuss 
reasons for the possible exit 
and entrance level testing. At 
the meeting, Bencich, team 
leader of the Florida Associa- 

tion of Community Colleges 
(FACC), presented a report 
citing that Florida's commun- 
ity college programs may need 
to be reassessed and improv- 

The report stated that the 
Florida Legislature was con- 
cerned with community col- 
leges' preparation of students 
for upper-division academic 
programs. Statistically, stu- 
dents who transfer to a 
university after completing 
two years at a community or 
junior college have a higher 
drop-out rate than do students 
who have completed their first 

two years at a four-year 
university. Also, as far as 
grade point averages go, the 
report states, "On the upper 
range of a GPA chart, 
community college students 
certaily do as well as the 
university's native students, 
but on the chart's lower range 
(GPA less than 2.0), commun- 
ity college students outnum- 
ber native students three to 

The FACC reports that 
there may be a number of 
barriers that might interfere 
with the legislature's idea of 
the basic skills testing. One of 

the most important is the 
funding of state-wide testing. 
Other factors: historically, 
minority attitudes towards 
basic skills testing have been 
negative; many faculty mem- 
bers believe that disadvan- 
taged students will benefit 
from being in college even 
though they do not meet 
performance standards; and 
the community college may be 
reluctant to risk displeasing a 
substantial portion of its 
clientele by testing. 

The Florida Legislature 
feels that the role of the 
community college must be 

redefined and that the 
performance testing of com- 
munity colleges may be 
essential in determining the 
measure of the students basic 
skills. It is not known at this 
time whether the testing will 
be carried out. It is still being 
discussed and debated. 

One member of PBJC s staff 
who was not in favor of the 
performance testing said, 
"Entrance and exit exams 
would promote elitism in tiie 
community college system. 
That would be getting away

Graduation moves to Jai Alai 



Originally slated for the 
West Palm Beach Auditorium, 
winter graduation ceremonies 
have been moved to the Palm 
Beach Jai Alai Fronton on 45th 
Street at 2 p.m. on May 5. 

A mix-up in scheduling 
resulted when the auditorium 
recently came under new 
management. The new man- 
agers did not realize the 
college was booked for May 5 
until PBJC officials called to 

confirm. "Holiday on Ice" was 
booked to perform for one 
week beginning May 4 by the 
new management. 

School officials were told the 
auditorium would be available 
May 12, but according to 
Jonathan Koontz, PBJC 
spokesman, the administra- 
tion was hesitant about 
waiting an extra week for 

"We were going for the 
May 12 date but hit a lot of 

snags. Many students want to 
get away right after gradua- 
tion," Koontz said. 

The ceremonies, usually 
held during the evening hours, 
must begin at 2 p.m. so they 
won't interfere with the 
evening's games. 

Koontz is pleased with the 
anangements. "The condi- 
tions are much better at the 

fronton," he said. '

U.S. cracks down on sty dent loans 

By Jim Hawyard 

AMOclat* Editor 

James Cissell, a U.S. 
district attorney, has filed suits 
in federal court against 501 
student loan defaulters seek- 
ing to recover $663,868 owed 
to the government. 

Cissell expects to see 
similar suits filed across the 
country. The suits, filed in 
three Ohio federal district 
courts, seek to recover unpaid 

loans made by the U.S. 
Department of Education 
under the Federal Insured 
Student Loan Program and the 
Veterans Administration. 

The suits are part of a 
Justice Department decision 
to crack down on defaulters, 
who nationwide owe a total of 
$732 million.

government filing suits). The

A similar campaign to

results. ' 'The default rate was

upon defaulters that the 
federal government is serious 
about repayment. "Other

from the lawsuits and pay 
up," he said. 

"In the long run, the 
students are only hurting 
themselves by not paying their 
loans," Faquir said.

Homecoming ceremony 
highlights activities 

» 9 By Kim Davis 

Newt Editor 

Steve Terlizze and Mandy Moore were crowned this year's 
homecoming king and queen in a ceremony Feb. 14 that 
highlighted last week's homecoming events. 

The king and queen, as well as the members of the court, 
were interviewed by judges as to their feelings concerning 
PBJC. Their answers were used as the basis for the final 
selection of the homecoming queen and king. 

This years king, Steve Terlizze, is a resident of West Palm 
Beach and a freshman at PBJC, He is a pre-law major and he 
serves as an active member of the senate in the Student 
Government Association. 

Mandy Moore, homecoming queen, is also a resident of West 
Palm Beach and a graduating sophomore this year. She is 
majoring in environmental conservation and is active in many 
organizations at PBJC. She is a member of the Science club and 
ICC club, but most of her time is spent working as publicity 
chairperson for Phi Theta Kappa, the national honor fraternity 
at PBJC. 

The homecoming court included Rick Oulette, West Palm 
Beach; Shelly Meyers, West Palm Beach; Ji m La m b, p a lm 
Springs; Tracy Ryan, Boca Raton; Dennis Graham, Lake Worth; 
Tracy Neal, West Palm Beach; and Lois Levy, West Palm Beach. 

As a fitting end to the homecoming festivities, the Palm 
Beach Junior College Pacers won a 79-60 victory over Broward 
Community College North.

Manifesto in 1924, "Surreal-

Ulesmann achieves his

it allows the images on his 
photographs to emerge to-

Drama festival winners 

By Jeff Falls 

Staff Writer 

On Thursday Feb. 12, nine local high 
schools competed in the seventh annual High 
School Drama Festival, hosted by PBJC 
Communications Department and Phi Rho Pi. 
Each high school presented a one-act play. 

The performances were attended by the 
drama departments of the respective high 
schools, the PBJC Drama Department and 
several PBJC English classes. 
After all of the plays had been presented, four 
were selected as the best by PBJC faculty 
members, Frank Leahy, Art Musto and Sunny 
Meyer and by George McGee, the guest critic. 

The four winners were: Palm Beach 
Gardens' s production of "Member of the 
Wedding" by Carson McCullus; Rosarian's 
production of Arthur Kopit's "Chamber 
Music"; Cardinal Newman's production of 
"Knock, Knock" by Jules Leiffer and the Lake 
Worth Production of "The Four Poster" by 

Jan de Hartog. 

The overall best actor and actress awards 
were presented to Kim Hite, for her 
performance as Amelia Earhart in "Rodman's

Does PBJC really need homecoming activities? 

Homecoming. It happens 
every year, but some years 
you have to wonder why- 
because every year it fails to 
meet with everyone's ex- 

It happened this year, it 
happens nearly every year. A 
handful of people vote for the 
king and queen, maybe even 
less attend the novelty and 
sporting events, and any 
concert or show usually 


It's not the administra- 
tion's fault, or the SGA's, or 
the students' or anybody's. 
Homecoming is just not 
practical atPBJC'like it is at a 
high school. 

Some say PBJC students 
have no school spirit, and for 
the most part they are 
correct. But how can 
students who come together 
from over a dozen area high 

schools (not to mention those 
out of the area) suddenly 
acquire spirit? 

Spirit is for high school, 
where one goes every day, 
and for four years (not two), 
and where one knows most of 
his classmates. It would 
follow, then, that Home- 
coming activities also belong 
at the high school level. 

The only way to atract a 
good percentage of the PBJC 

student population is to have 
an event in a place which can 
accomodate a large group of 
people (such as John Prince 
Park), and to have some 
popular area bands (such as 
last year). 

But something like that 
will probably never happen 
again, since some local thugs 
decided to crash the party 
and give all PBJC students a 
bad name. 

If PBJC is to have any 

Homecoming at all, it should 
include activities that will 
attract the student body, not 
the administration, SGA 01 
anyone else. If it continues 
on the course it seems 
destined on, the program 
should be ditched. 

Let's try not having 
Homecoming one year and 
see what happens. Chances 
are nobody would even 
notice. After all, who is 
really coming home anyway? 


My diploma and $ 2 on the 2-3-1

Some random thoughts from 
in and around Palm Beach 
Junior College: The proposed 
name change to PBCC sure 
did die quietly. More than 60 
percent of those surveyed 
thought so-called tradition was 
more important than progress. 

News Flash! This year's 
sophomore graduation will be 
held at the Palm Beach Jai 

Alai Fronton instead of the 
West Palm Beach Auditorium. 
Don't snicker. Despite all the 
jokes that will probably make 
the rounds, the fronton might 
even be a better place to have 
our last hurrah at PBJC. After 
graduating, we can wait 
around for the Sala Del Toro to 
open, have a steak dinner, get 
tremendously drunk, and then 
hit the betting windows. What 


a good idea. Is the rumor 1 
heard today true? Next year's 
graduation will be held at the 
Palm Beach Kennel Club. I 
had this strange dream of 
PBJC graduates-to-be replac- 
ing the dogs and a diploma 
replacing the mechanical 
rabbit; Steve Foreman an- 
nouncing the event ("And 
their off! Smith on the outside 
by nose") and the teachers 
placing bets on whether we 
would graduate or not. Meeks 
was the long shot at 200-to-l. 


Graduation at Jai Alai might not be a bad idea after all. 

SG Aforms new club 

Dear Editor, 

It gives me great pleasure to 
inform the students of PBJC 
that a new organization has 
been formed on campus. The 
Inter Campus Clubs (ICQ is 
an organization designed to 
help the clubs on campus keep 
in touch and hopefully keep 
them interested in campus 

activities. With more people 
working on an event, campus 
activities will hopefully be- 
come a better attraction. This 
organization has already 
demonstrated its ability to pull 
our campus clubs together to 
produce successful activities.

strengthened in the past two

is monumental, and will

societal offenders.

Greetings from Iran 

Dear Editor, 

To the administration of 
Palm Beach Junior College, I 
wish to extend the greetings of 
the people of Iran and the Oil 
Producing Exporting Coun- 
tries of the Middle East. We 
must give you special thanks 
for your needless waste of 
energy on the central campus. 
The area which at present we 
are most grateful for 'is the 
back room of the cafeteria. 
The double automatic doors on 
the side of the room open to 
everybody walking by the 

building whether or not they 
are seeking admission to the 
room. The blast of air, 
whether heated or cooled, is 
refreshing to the pedestrian, 
and to us. It is further noted 
that you have locked the 
adjacent manual doors to any 
incoming traffic, thus forcing 
any economy-minded person 
to use the larger automatic 
doors. This not only seems a 
grand effort to help us, but it 
insures the inactivity of the 
student body in even the most 
menial of manual tasks. 

weeks has been the tie 
between our campus student 
governments. The multi-cam- 
pus meeting of student 
government on Feb. 9 was 
very well attended by north, 
south, central and Glades 
campuses. The south campus 
participated in wheelchair 
basketball as well as Sunday's 
picnic and the Glades campus 
had a party on Friday night 
which the central campus 
attended. We love Belle 

I would also like to take this 
opportunity to express thanks 
on behalf of the student

the Feb. 9 issue of the

referred to AC-DC s hit single 
as "T.H.C.". It should be 
reported that the song is called 
"T.N.T. 1 ; As an AC-DC fan 
from day one, I otherwise fully 
agree with the rest of Mr. 
DeCaprio's comments. Some- 
thing else he failed to mention

regrouped only to continue to

Teachers should be taught lesson 

Dear Editor, 

I am disgusted with only one 
aspect of Palm Beach Junior 
College, (no it's not the 

I am upset by the fact that 
students are forced to put up 
with incompetence among 
some teachers. It is highly 
ironic that some of these 
people have the audacity to go 
around using the term 
"teacher" to describe their 
profession. I have encountered 
teachers at this campus who 
are excellent in their field, 
notably Mr. Larry Mack, Mr. 
Watson B. Duncan, Mr. 
William McCracken and Mr. 
Glenn Heyward. 

Their type of teaching is 
rare- a combination of humor 
and actual education.

PBJC are competent but I am

Rush changes for the better on 'Moving Pictures' 

By BUI Meredith 


A veteran Canadian power 
trio, Rush has never acquired 
the following here in the U.S. 
that they had from the 
beginning in Canada. The 
reasons for this are disput- 
able, but may lie in the 
sometimes overly-spacey lyr- 
ics of drummer Neil Peart and 

shrill vocals of Geddy Lee. 

While any drastic change of 
style might have lessened 
their considerable cult 
following, moderation has 
always been something Rush 
lacked and needed for mass 
acceptance and respect. But 
they have finally eased their 
lyrical and vocal styles on then-

Geddy Lee's vocal becomes

"Red Barchetta" and

one, are solid rockers. Both 
have more down-to-earth 
lyrics and showcase guitarist 
Alex Lifeson's powerful leads.

subdued and each tune has a

The album's masterpiece is 
the instrumental "YYZ". 
Peart sets an excellent 
fast-rock beat and is allowed 
impressive flurries between 
Lifeson's rhythm rifflng and 
Lee's startling bass solos. 
Rush has always been 
strongest when their vocals/ 
lyrics were absent, "YYZ" 
being proof. 

Side two is also impressive, 
if not as much. "The Camera 
Eye" is a long and interesting 
tune with synthisizer intro and 
fade out, flashy guitar solos 
and another well-controlled 
vocal by Geddy Lee. 

"Witch Hunt" uses spooky 
lyrics and a bell intro, but the 
effect lessens as the simple 
synthsizer lead and beat cause 
the song to drag. Faring 
better is "Vital Signs", 
despite its throwaway lyrics. 
The sound actually approaches 
reggab, then continues to a 
faster beat before returning to 
the original tempo. 

With its subtle but helpful 
changes, "Moving Pictures" 
may gain Rush a horde ofnew 
fans. Their lyrics now make 
sense, the vocals sound 
human and the instrumenta- 
tion, as always, is excellent. 

Balanced writing also helps, 
with all three members 
collaborating on every cut 
except "YYZ," written by Lee 
and Peart. 

What next? No one knows. 
Rush's unpredictability will 
undoubtedly keep things 
interesting, but more albums 
like "Moving Pictures" could 
put them atop the pile of 
current heavy metal bands.

Students 'bounced' for bad checks 

W ByMicheleKurteff 


Supermarkets, gas companies 
and doctors all accept them as 
payment with the risk that 
they may not be valid. Palm 
Beach Junior College has 
taken in $31 ,000 of them in the 
last year. They are bad checks 
that students write for tuition, 
books and supplies. 

On February 18, the District 
Board of Trustees moved to 
toughen collection procedures 
effective immediately. 

As practiced in the past, 
students will be given a one 
week opportunity to pay 
restitution without penalty. 
Should the seven day period 
expire then students will be 
suspended for the remainder 
of the semester and will not be 
allowed re-entry, for the 
current semester or any other 
semester until the check is 
made good and a bad check 
penalty paid. 

In a statement issued by the 
Business Affairs office a list of 
procedures were 'outlinedl for 
returned checks. 

One item states, "The 

accountant shall notify by 

certified mail any student who 

has a returned check, that the 
full amount of the check plus a 
service charge not to exceed 
$10 or five percent of the face 
amount of the check or 
whichever is greater. The 
student will also be notified in 
this letter that the redemption 
of the uncollected check must 
be paid with cash, money 
order, or certified check." 

Another guideline indicates 
that if a returned check is not 
paid within seven days of the 
receipt by the student, the 
accountant will notify the 
Registrar in writing that the 
student has an unpaid 
returned check and is 

Other points include: "Any 
checks returned by the bank to 
the college prior to the first 
day of regular registration will 
be returned to the. student 
with a letter indicating their 
registration transaction has 
been voided. The student may 
re-register up to and including 
the last day of registration by 
payment of his fees with cash, 
certified check, or money 
order." - 

If any student attending the 
college has had any type of 

Over $31,000 in outstanding checks was returned to PBJC this past term according to Dr. Tony 
Tate, vice president of Business Affairs. 

history of previous returned 
checks, the Vice President of 
Business Affairs is authorized 
to require the student to pay 
subsequent registration or 
purchases at the Bookstore 
with cash, money order, or 
certified check. 

Campus administrators un- 
derstand that occasionally a 
legitimate mistake occurs but 
pity can not be felt for those 
that know that their bank 
account is dry. 

"We are sympathetic with 
anyone who makes an honest 
mistake about the amount of 

money in a checking account 
and we believe our procedure 
gives ample opportunity for 
such mistakes to be discovered 
and made good," said Dr. 
Edward M. Eissey, PBJC 

Dr. Tony Tate, Vice 
President of Business Affairs 
ran a state wide check and 
discovered that other com- 
munity colleges have a policy 
similar to the newly instated 
one at PBJC. 

Tate said that much of the 
£31,000 now outstanding may 
be recovered by the college

eventually but collection 
procedures are difficult and 
time consuming. "Most of our 
students are honest and 
straightforward. We don't 
intend to let a few dishonest 
people spoil things for them," 
Tate said. "We want 

everybody to know that they 
cannott get away with writing 
a bad check to the college. ' ' 

Perhaps Eissey summed the 
whole thing up best by 
stating, "It is a crime to 
knowingly write a bad check, 
and we do not have sympathy 
tor anyone who does that. ' '

Library installs security system 

By Jackie Walls 
Staff Writer 

A new security system has 
been installed in the PBJC 
Library. The check point 
system has been put in to 
prevent the loss of books that 
has occured the past couple of 
years. Just recently, the theft 
problem has risen to such a 
point that some action had to 
be taken. 

"1 honestly believe most of 
the theft problem is being 
caused by non-students," said 
Wiley Douglas, head librarian. 
An average of $15 is lost per 
book stolen from the library. 
The 'system's; installment cost 
is $16,000 and will pay for 
itself within two years. 

Although the system is 
electronic, it is completely 
harmless and will cause no 

disruptions to the medical 
devices such as hearing aids or 
pacemakers. The system 
operates on a 110 household 
current and meets every fire 
code law. 

About $10,000 is lost every 
year without the system. Up to 
92 percent protection is 
expected from the system, 
which will be in operation 
starting today.

Helen V. Diedrich , a member of the PBJC faculty received an 
award at the Third Annual Florida Conference for Higher 
Education in Tallahassee for her' service to handicapped 
students in community colleges. 

Diedrich is a graduate of Florida State University. She 
obtained her bachelor's degree there in nursing education, she 
is also a registered nurse. She obtained her Master's degree at 
FSU in counseling, for which she is employed at PBJC. 

The main objectives of the conference were: 

1. To make its participants familiar with needs of the 
handicapped concerning higher education and to suggest 
improved ways to deliver services., 

2. To consider the process of implementing the statewide 
Needs Assessment and Master Plan for the handicapped with 
respect to higher education in the state of Florida with particular 
emphasis on funding. ^ 

3. To explore the possibilities of developing a statewide 
network of individuals who can effectively work for the 
betterment of the handicapped in colleges and universities.

Thursday night at Broward

rouSament was held. PBJC's 

Li 59 win over fav , or t d 
Miami-Dade North propels the 

pfce* in* the Region Vffl 
fctate) tournament to be held 
flSSdiy through Saturday at 

Stetson University in DeLand. 
The win was the climax of 
an almost perfect tournament 
in which Palm Beach knocked 
off regular season champ 
Indian River 81-62 in the 
semifinals and tied a school 
record with its 22nd win in 32 
games. The last Pacer team to 
go as far was the miracle 
"Eight is Enough Bunch" of 
1978 which placed seventh in 
the nation after whining the 
state tournament. This year's 
group is similar to that team in 
size, style of play and most of 
all, togetherness. PBJC takes 
a seven-game winning streak 

into Thursday's game with 
Chipola Junior College in the 
opening round of the tourna- 

The Pacers shut down 
Dade-North's 6-foot- 10 Yvon 
Joseph and used a flawless 
four-corners offense to frus- 
trate the Falcons in the final. 
PBJC held a 61-55 lead with 25 
seconds to play and precari- 
ously held on to win. 

"it's just, one leg up," 
Ceravolo said. "But we have 
two more steps to go." Those 
two steps are the state and 
national tournaments, steps 

the Pacers can easily slip on. 
Right now, however, losing is 
the farthest thing from the 
Pacers' minds. "No one has 
more momentum than us," 
Freshman Mike Wilson said. 

Momentum is what counts 
at tournament time, no matter 
how many games a team has 
won during the season. 
Momentum is what eight men 
who carried a losing record 
into the state tournament in 
1978 used so well. Indian 
River will also be in DeLand 
this week as the regular 
season Division IV champ gets 
an automatic birth. 

Ten, not eight, has been 
more than enough for the 
Pacers this year as Ceravolo 
has used his well-balanced 
bench expertly. Six players 
have averaged in double 
hgures in scoring this season, 
Graham leading the way at 
13.9. It's been 10 men 
coordinated as one that hopes 
to be PBJCs next miracle 
team. Braswell, Castle, Gra- 
ham, Harris, Hopson, Morris, 
Pauldo, Powell, Wilson, Wor- 
tham and the 11th man- a man 
they call 'Coach Joe" - will 
continue their quest Thursday 
m DeLand. 


2 - Beachcomber Monday, March 2, 1981 


Beachcomber... more than meets the eye 

Km Davis 

The responsibilities of 
individuals on the Beach- 
comber staff have been 
questioned in recent weeks. 
Apparently some members 
of the faculty and student 
body believe that it is a major 
responsibility of each person 
on the staff to attend every 
meeting or event of every 
organization on all four PBJC 

First and foremost, this is 
a student newspaper com- 
prised of college students 
who have an interest in 
either writing, photography, 
graphics, business, or the 
workings of a newspaper in 

The work is strictly 
voluntary. As editors of the 

Beachcomber, we are re- 
sponsible for finding out all 
newsworthy events taking 
place on all four PBJC 
campuses and reporting 
them in the most profession- 
al manner we can . Since we 
are students and interested 
in such mundane items as 
maintaining respectable 
grade point averages and 
working up to 40 hours at 
outside jobs to pay for our 
education, it is not physically 
possible for us to attend each 
happening that takes place. 

If we are unable to cover 
the story, we go to the source 
of the happening and find 
out all the information we 
possibly can. This has been 
one of the major complaints. 

It is the feeling of some that 
the Beachcomber can not 
effectively report a happen- 
ing without being there in 
person. We agree that it is 
preferable to attend the 
event and consider it less 
professional to ask a 
department chairperson, for 
instance, to relate the 
highlights and his personal 
feelings of an important 
community event a day after 
the event had occured. 

It is not the way we would 
rather do our reporting, it is 
the way we sometimes 
MUST "° our reporting. If 
that bothers members of the 
faculty and student body, we 
sincerely apologize, but 
before you condemn our

journalist methods, consider 
the following: 

1. Most of the members of 
the Beachcomber staff are on 
campus as early as 7 a.m. 
and stay as late as 6 p.m., 
combining classes with 
duties on the newspaper. 

2. We must get our stories 
and pictures together in a 
matter of three to four days 
as deadlines are on every 
Thursday of every week. 

3. We are limited by funds 
as to the amount of pages 
and space we will have each 

4. We must spend 
Thursday nights from 5 p.m. 
until whenever, laying out 
and editing the paper. 
(Whenevers can last until 
after midnight.) 

5. We are responsible for 
delivering the finished lay- 


New Blood key factor in SGA's success 

outs to our printer in Lake 
Park on Thursday nights. 

6. We are responsible for 
going to the printer on 
Friday afternoons from 1:30 
until 4 p.m. to do the final 
editing and paste up of the 
paper and assure the 
delivery of the paper to 
Stuart News by 5 p.m. 

7. We must distribute 
newspapers throughout the 
central campus on the 
weekends and be responsible 
for the care of newspapers 
being delivered to other 
PBJC campuses on Monday. 

There are many hours of 
work that go into producing 
our weekly newspaper. We 
are not adverse to construct- 
ive criticism — in fact we 
welcome it. But before 
heaping abuse on our backs, 
perhpas you should slip on a 
pair of our discarded shoes 
and walk a mile or so with us. 

I was compelled to write this 
editorial on behalf of new SGA 
Vice President Jim Lamb, 
Treasurer Mimi Bramuchi and 
new senators Mark Pignato, 
Mark Miller, Wesley George, 
Tim Costello and myself. In 
short, easy to understand 
words- I think we're doing a 
fantastic job! Since the day we 
were sworn into office (taking 
the place ot the officers who 
quit the SGA) we have totally 
dedicated ourselves to funct- 
ioning as a well-oiled machine. 
As things turned out, the 
"new blood" of the SGA took 
a seemingly hopeless home- 
coming structure and turned it 
into a successful event (foi 
those who participated). 
Although there is skepticism 
as to the importance of 
homecoming, I think we have 
performed our duties with 
zeal. And we are proud of our 


Not only do we work 
together, but we simply love 
each other as people. In fact, 
our success thus fat can be 
attributed to our affection to 
one another, as well as our 
dedication to work we do. 
Afterall, it is plain to see that 
much more has been accom- 
plished since the new senators 
took office than before, when 
the now resigned officers 
struggled amongst themsel- 

. Jim Lamb has especially 
been a driving force in the past 
transition. He stepped into 
office at a crucial time and has 
done an outstanding job. He is 
definitely a refreshing type ot 
leader, one who leads instead 
of pushes. Jim, as well as the 
other new senators, follow a 
simple philosophy: "put what 
the old officers did in the past, 

and look only into the future. ' ' 
We are "sparkling clean," 
so to speak. Our new SGA has 
no blemishes on its record. 
Nevertheless, the soiled rep- 
utation of the old crew of 
quitters still lingers with us. 
When the going got tough, we 
got going. This is not the case 

with the former officers. I 
firmly believe that the SGA 
deserves much praise for their 
efforts, instead of opposition 
by individual sources. 

The "new SGA" is now out 
of the woods, in a manner of 
speaking. We have triumphed 

over all obstacles, and we are 
more than capable of leading 
our student body in a positive 
direction, for a change. In 
response to the remark "they 
don't even try-" to some folks, 
they don't have to try; it just 
comes naturally when they 
enjoy what they're doin'

Dear Editor, 

I would like to make a few 
comments about the Beach- 
comber sports page. This 
term, the sports page has been 
more enjoyable to read than of 
those of past terms. 

National sports has no 
business on a college sports

Staff Writer 

Back in 1978, the states began to rock to a 
new beat or "New Wave." Good New Wa/e 
music produces a new style without eliminating 
the rock beat and intensity. 

Back in 1978 when popular groups like Led 
Zepphn, Pink Floyd, Eagles, Blue Oyster Cult, 
Foghat and Molly Hatchet were leading the rock 
industry. The Cars were making their way up 
the "New Wave" rock scene. 

Packing the new wave circuits with then- 
cresting hair do's, yellow and purple pants with 
dark colored shirts or silk jackets, dark glasses 
and other apparel, new wave fans crowded to 
see the new-styled rock music. 

The Cars have been satisfying rock fans, like 
those mentioned, for almost three and a half 
years now. They started with the LP "The 
Cars" and ended 1980 with "Panorama." Their 
only other LP was "Candy O." 

In their first album, "The Cars," the group 
produced three best- selling hit singles. They 
were, "My Best Friends Girl," "Just What I 
Needed," and "Bye Bye-Bye Love." Their 
single, ' 'Just What I Needed, ' ' stayed in the top 
40 for most of the 1978 summer and fall.

more background on the 
athlete, but I feel you are 
losing the priorities of sports 
reporting. I feel that the scores 
of the games at PBJC such as 
basketball, baseball and 
tennis should come first over 
anything else. Aren't you 
suppose to report events that 
are current, instead of two 
weeks late? It is hard enough 
to get PBJC sports results 
from the Palm Beach Post or 
Times, which usually are 
buried on the last page. Which 
means, a PBJC enthusiast has 

to rely on the Beachcomber to 
give the scores. I realize space 
is a problem at times, but just 
run a line score, that is better 
than nothing. Also, what 
about more photographs. I see 
a photographer at ,many 
sporting events, but only one 
photograph. Make the photo- 
graphs small and use more. 

Overall, the sports page is 
better than ever, and with 
these suggestions, it could be 
the best in PBJC history. 
Please keep up the good work, 
but give us more current sport 

stereos to clock radios, their most popular songs 
"Lets Go," "All I Can Do" and others shook 
heads and swung bodies to the new intense 
beat. "Lets Go" stayed in the 1979 top 20 for 
more than eight weeks followed by "All I Can 
Do." From these two hits, the Cars took 
listeners to the beach, out on dates to keg and 
toga parties, to school, out with friends and to 
many sporting events. Their popularity didn't 
stop there, it grew! 

Leaving 79 behind and approching 1980, The 
Cars worked on their new album and released it 
in early 1980. "Panorama" contains the 
shouting, synthesizing, repetition and constant 
beat that awaiting Cars listeners enjoy. "Touch 
and Go" introduced the new LP but besides 
"Don't Tell Me No", that was it. "Panorama's" 
sales were stable to moderate but not very high. 

"Panorama shouldn't hamper success for the 
young group although it may slow The Cars 
progress down a bit. More of ' 'The Cars" is yet 
to be heard so listeners and critics must not 
judge the group from one dry album. All in all, 
"Panorama" can stay on the shelf or return to

Mr. Metz, 

Thank you for your 
constructive criticisms and 
suggestions. Despite lack of 
space, we have Wednesday 
evening deadlines and are 
unable to print sports events 
that take place after that time. 

Unfortunately, we cannot 
satisfy all our readers tastes. 
We have tried to run a weekly 
scoreboard in the past, but 
find it difficult to gather 
scores in time to meet 


If you think we need to run

The ticket to moving ahead 

By Robin Aurelius 
North Campus Correspondant 

' "The ticket to moving ahead 
is a college diploma," said Dr. 
Kathy Aiello at a meeting for 
Phi Beta Lambda on Feb. 22. 

The business club from 
North Campus sponsored the 
seminar given by Dr. Aiello, 
Director of Women's Center at 
Palm Beach Junior College 
central entitled "The Who, 
What, When, Where and How 
of Getting Ahead." 

"When you have a diploma, 
it does help in getting ahead. I 
remember when 1 attended 
PBJC and was listening to Mr. 
Duncan about Shakespeare, I 
thought, when will I ever need 
to know about Shakespeare. 
Or why do I have to take social 
institutions to learn about 
-things in the 1800' s, or why do 
I need to take Public Speaking. 
I'll never need that. And sure 
enough, here I am giving a 

speech today," Dr. Aiello 

"Your physical appearance 
is very important especially 
since most of you are so 
young. A man named Malloy 
wrote a book called The 
Women's Dress For Success 
from studies that were done in 
management and found that 
personal appearance was the 
prime motivator in moving 
ahead. You'll be noticed and 
the way you dress represents 
your company, so always 
remember a professional 

"The where in getting 
ahead is a tough decision. You 
pick where you are going to 
live. This is the place where 
I'm going to stay, where my 
stability is." 

"The Who — somebody 
once said, it's not what you 
know, it's who you know. 
There was a study done on 

college seniors, one year after 
they graduated and they were 
asked where they got the most 
help in obtaining a job. They 
said it was from friends and 
family. Remember 80 percent 
of all job openings are not 
advertised. Also, learn off of 
people you work with every 
day. They might have one 
good trait or bad trait, that you 
can learn from." 

"Finally, everyone should 
set an objective. Establish a 
game plan. I know people who 
have been attending school for 
five years and still don't know 
what they want to do. Not only 
does it drain the pocketbook, 
but you are five years older 
and you still haven't estab- 
ished a game plan. But 
remember, you can always 
change your objective along 
the way, ' ' she said.

Larry Mack's column de 

By BiO Meredith 

As a student, clinical 
psychologist and General 
Psychology teacher at PBJC, 
Larry Mack has encountered 
many students and the 
problems which seem to follow 
them. For the remaining six 
Beachcomber issues of this 
term, he will write a 
supplimental column for the 
Beachcomber on problems 
commonly shared by college 
students and how he feels 
these problems can be dealt \ 

With a Master's degree 
from Indiana University, Larry 
has been a practicing clinical 
psychologist in Palm Beach 
County for just under a year 
and seems to thoroughly enjoy 
his work. "You don't go into 
psychology unless you enjoy 
people" he relates. "I like 
people, and I indirectly get 
some very tangible rewards 
from seeing those people grow 
and change. " 

Since graduating from 
Indiana University, Larry has 
worked as a volunteer crisis 
intervention counselor in 
Atlanta and as a clinical 
director for C.A.R.P. Inc., 
dealing mainly with people 
aged 14 to 22 and their alcohol 
and drug abuse problems. He 
is currently practicing and 
working on his doctorate, and 
feels that being a student 
himself and teaching at PBJC 
keep him closer in tune to 
students and their problems . 

"Students feel different and 
they are different" he said. 
"They many times feel alone, 
and most don't know how to 
effectively deal with stress." 

Below is the first in a series 
of weekly columns by Larry 
Mack on how students can 
help themselves cope with the 
problems of college life and 
living. Any letters received 
will be responded to in the 
following week's column, and 
further information as to 
Larry's individual and group 
counseling can be found in the 
advertisement on page three. 

Larry Mack sees himself as 
someone who can help people 
help themselves. " I teach 
somebody how to build a new 
home, but THEY go out and 
build it once the foundation is 
laid" he says. "I'm not going 
to be around when they need 
me, they're going to be 
around. ' ' 

Test anxiety 

As a student, you encounter 
unique situations and exper- 
iences tSiat the role inherits 
naturally. One area that often 
gives students difficulty is test 
taking. Learning the material 
m a course is not enough. You 
must be able to show what you 
have learned on a test. You 
probably have experienced a 
test situation where you felt 
tense and apprehensive prior 
to the beginning of the exam. 
You are sitting at your desk 
and suddenly have an 
overwhelming feeling of 
anxiety. As you commence 
with your exam, your anxiety 
continues to mount. A 
majority of the specific details 
you have studied are not being 
remembered and your mind 
seems blank... 

Is this situation a familiar 
one? This is called test anxiety 
and is one of the most 
commonly experienced in a 
student's college life. It is a 
very normal, yet frightening 
and debilitating experience. 

Many students feel inade- 
quate, inferior and develop a 
poor concept about their 
test- taking skills. These fail- 
ure experiences can often 
make a student with an 
established history of test 
difficulty feel even more 
inadequate about themselves. 
You can use several 
techniques to improve your 
test taking skills. While 
studying for your test, imagine 
the actual classroom setting in 
which you will be taking the 
test. Picture yourself in the 
classroom and begin to relax 
comfortably with a regular 
breathing pattern. Imagine 

to help students 

Monday, March 2, 1981 Beachcomber - 5 


vuinseH m a comfortable 
setting, i.e. a beach scene, a 

mountain scene, etc. where 
you feel especially good about 
yourself. Now that you have 
positive feelings and are 
confidently prepared for the 
test, combine those feelings of 
relaxation with the picture of 
sitting in the classroom. 
Sometimes it helps to actually 
place yourself in the anxiety 
producing situation, i.e. study 
in the classroom where you 
will actually take the test. 

You will begin to incorpor- 
ate this relaxed feeling into 
the testing situation and the 
outcome during the actual test 
will be minimal and very 
normal anxiety which all of us 

experience when having to 
take a test. You can practice 
this method of using relax- 
ation and visual imagery with 
any anxiety producing situa- 
tion, even interview anxiety 
which is another area of 
difficulty commonly experien- 
ced by students. 

Students interested in 
responding to Larry Mack 
should either leave their 
inquiries at or mail them to

Publications, 4200 S. Congress 
Avenue, Lake Worth, Florida, 
Confidentiality for all letters 
received is assured.

We made it to Hollywood in 
less than two hours, stopping 
only to devour numerous 
plastic cartons of writhing 
Asiatic food. But as we rolled 
Westward on Hollywood 
Boulevard, a strange thing 
began to happen — traffic 
began to slow down. And slow 
down And slow down. This 
concerned us a great deal, not 
only because of the imminent 
arrival of 8 p.m. (showtime), 
but also because we had been 
counting on the wind-cooling 
effect of a high rate of speed to 
keep the back seat from 
melting, possibly drowning us 
and simultaneously dissolving 

e concert amenities stashed 

standstill and a heavy mist 
was slowly enveloping western 
Hollywood. Minutes, then 
hours rolled by, until finally, 
in the distance, we saw the 

emotional tone for the 
evening. The show was 
presented as a gift to the 
audience, rather than as a 
vehicle to feed the performers' 

under the back seat. It was 
time for decisions — we 
decided to risk it all — drink 
the rest of the beer, jettison 
the ice and go on EAS(Emer- 
geny Alcohol Standby). It was 
a dangerous situation, but we 
both knew that concerts are a 
rough game and sometimes 
sacrifices have to be made. 

By the time we completed 
this phase, traffic was at a 

heavy orange glow of the 
Barn. We had arrived. We 
"parked" the car in the Barn's 
alligator infested swamp, 
innouucously labeled "park- 
ing". We abandoned the car 
in the bog and swam toward 
the great iron gates. There 
were thousands like us 
soaking wet, white-nosed, 
Springsteen fans, crawling 
under the huge sign posted 
over the door, "Abandon 
hope, all ye that enter here." 
As if they had to tell us. We 
passed the scowling Barn 
security people, the ruthless 
T-shirt vendors, the strange 
men in dark suits with J. 
Edgar Hoover tatoos, and then 
— We were inside! 

The crowd, consisting 
largely of Northerners, was 
unusually good-natured. 
Sounding the opening notes of 
"Badlands" Springsteen hit 
the stage, setting a high 

egos, the latter being all too 
dreary a common sight at rock 
shows of the last few years. 

Springsteen's choice of 
material was interesting. He 
completely ignored "Greet- 
ings From Asbury Park," his 
first album. He played only 
"Sandy" and "Rosalita" from 
his second album, "The Wild, 
the Innocent, and the E Street 
Shuffle." Most of the show 
was built around his last three 
albums, "Born To Run," 
"Darkness on the Edge of 
Town, "and "The River." 

The highlight of the first set 
was a moving rendition of the 
Springsteen composition "Be- 
cause the Night," performed 
with a clench-toothed fierce- 
ness that shamed the Patti 
Smith version. Springsteen 
also did an excellent job with 
the old Creedence Clearwater 
hit "Who'll Stop the Rain?" 

The second set opened with

"Cadillac Ranch" and in-

current singles from "The

first encore, was as awesome 
a performance as has ever 
been seen in south Florida. It 
was equalled only by the 
second encore, the famed 
"Detroit Medley" for which 
Bruce Springsteen received a 
Grammy nomination from the 
film "No Nukes." 

The best tribute to Bruce 
Springsteen's efforts came not 
from one of the younger 
people in attendance, but from 
a concert-goer approximately 
45 years of age: "He reminded 
me a lot of Elvis. You know, in

Athletic Spotlight 

Steve Beverly 
Sports Editor 

Always hustling, training 
hard, and fighting until the 
last point. This is the 
systematic view of Steve 
Schaerer, currently a top 
player for the PBJC men's 
tennis team. 

Schaerer was born in 
Michigan on Dec. 22, 1960 and 
came to Florida at the age of 
10. Schaerer attended Lake 
Worth High and held the 
number one position for three 
years. While playing for the 
Trojans he was voted to the All 
Conference Team as well as 
serving the position of team 

Schaerer is currently a 
sophomore at PBJC and holds 
a slot on the top half of the 
men's ladder. Schaerer works 
hard at practice, however 
there is one problem. Cardinal 
Newman High School has 

leased the PBJC courts for 
their practices. This causes a 
major conflict when the PBJC 
squad has a scheduled 
practice. Is it right for the 
PBJC tennis team not to be 
able to practice on their own 
courts? Other than the recent 
problem with the availability 
of the courts, Schaerer feels 
the team is going smooth, and 
the team has a lot of talent and 

Schaerer respects coach 
Max Faquir and feels he 
knows the game of tennis and 
is a contributing factor to the 
success of the squad. "If I had 
six Steve Schaeiers on the 
team, we would win the 
national title," Faquir said. 
"Steve is a dedicated hard 
worker and is a invaluable 
asset to the team, " 

Schaerer feels the team has 
a good chance of winning the 
conference tournament this 

year, however he feels the 
competition will be tight at the 
state level. Seminole College 
poses a major threat in the 
running for the state title. 

In addition to being a strong 
tennis player, Schaerer is also 
a dedicated runner. He ran the 
Turkey Trot held in November 
as well as the Orange Bowl 
Marathon in which he finished 
among the top third of the 
runners;. He usually runs 
approximately 15 to 20 miles a 

Currently a business major, 
Schaerer hopes to become a 
land investor and possibly 
remodel homes for a career. 

In addition to attending 
school and playing tennis, 
Schaerer enjoys gardening, 
hunting, and playing chess. 
He also has a great 
responsibilty in caring for his 
son. Schaerer is a recent 
father of a happy, healthy

Lady Pacers win opener 

By Kim Davis 
News Editor 

The Pacer Softball team 
opened its softball season Feb. 
24 with a 3-1 victory over 
Miami-Dade South. 

Jane Williams run-scoring 
single and a Dade-South error 
in the first inning gave the 
Pacers a 2-0 lead. Robin 
Thomas finished the Pacer 
scoring with a RBI single in 
the second inning. 

The highlight of the game 
was a triple play in the second 
inning. While Dade-South 
runners were on first and 
second, freshman pitcher Debi 
Glass fielded a grounder and 
forced the runner at second 

base. Ann Filipkowski threw 
to first baseman Leslie 
Hoffman for the second out. 
The final out was a rundown 
and tag out by shortstop Robin 

Coach John Anderson has 
high expectations for his 
softball team this year. He has 
five starting freshmen in the 
line up and feels his team has 
the ability to clinch the 
division title. 

"I think we can win it — I 
don't think there's any team 
around that's better than ours 
this year, ' ' said Anderson. 

The next home game will be 
March 18 at 2 p.m. against 
Miami-Dade North.

Karate... An art in itself 

By Steve Beverly 



The use of the mind and body together as one. 
This is the basic philosophy of Sensei John 
Artemik's Martial Arts Academy located at 1263 
S. Military Trail in West Palm Beach. 

Recently the martial arts have grown in 
popularity due to the media as well as growing 
social tension in the world. Karate may be 
thought of by some as a sport of kicks and 
punches to beat up other people, but it is not. 
Karate is an art in itself. The mental aspect of 
Karate is just as- important as the physical 
aspect. Karate is an unexplored area of 
knowledge and can be learned from the view of 
not only a sport and a means of self defense but 
also as a philosophy as well. 

People are beginning to realize that martial 
arts develop ,a person both mentally and 
physically. "One of the greatest problems 
facing American society today is the lack of 
respect for authority," said Atremik. Artemik 
feels that is is ultimately self defeating to 
concentrate primarily on the physical factors of 
self defense, without the same time spent 
developing an inner coordination of calm and 
control. The body has obvious limitations, 
however who is to say what the limitations of the 
mind are and it's possibilities for development. 
Zen is perhaps the most rewarding aspect of 
the martial arts. Artemik feels Zen has helped 
him alter his personal life. He feels calmer, 
richer and fuller as well as having more 
patience, tolerance and increased self 

Artemik first began studying Karate while 

serving in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1958. He 
studied under two masters, Masatoshi 
Nakayama and Masutatsu Oyama, for six years 
in Japan. Artemik holds a fourth degree black 
belt in (Dan) style Karate. He also holds a black 
belt in several different areas of 
Karate. Magazines such as "Black Belt", 
"Karate Illustrated," and "World Karate 
Magazine" have featured Artemik. In addition 
PM magazine has done a feature on the 
academy as well as plans for future follow up 

The Martial Arts Academy is headed by 
Artemik, and his wife Angie. Black belt 
instructors for the academy include, Chip 
Wooton, Mitch Mandel, Jerry Arline, Norm 
Owens, and John McCranels. 

The sessions are in groups of approximately 
20 students with four instructors per session. 
There is a minute and a half of meditation 
followed by stretching and warm up exercises. 
The different programs offered include 
Karate/Karado, Self Defense, proper breathing 
techniques, Judo, Jujit-su, Aikido techniques, 
weight control, Zen meditation, self confidence, 
stress reduction, coordination, courier dispatch, 
crowd control, weapons training, pistol 
handling, handgun instruction, as well as 
uniform and equipment sales. 

The belt categories start with white which 
have three different levels, green with three 
levels, brown with three, and finally black which 
consists often levels. 

Artemik is also known as a Samari which 
means a person with value. Some philosophies 
of Karate include "The angry man will defeat 
himself in battle as well as in life," and 

Control your emotion or it will control you. ' ' 
The Martial Arts Academy has been a great 
asset to the community as a whole, and students 
who have attended have benefited both 
mentally and physically.
