Opp one nts vow to
continue · fight
against campus
by C. L. Stringer

HARTFORD - Reeling with
the outcome of last Friday 's
Bond Commission vote, the two
opposing forces in the dispute
over a new WestConn campus
pledged after the meeting to hold
fast to their hard-fought positions.
Led by Gov. Ella T. Grasso , the
commissio n decided 6-4 to
r elease $4.5 million jo begin constructio n of a classroom building
·on the Westside campus , despite
strong and sometimes bitter opposition from its four legislative
members .
" The commission and those
voicing support with the governor did a fine thing toda y,"
college P resi dent Robe r t M.
Bersi said following the tense 40minute debate.
Ack n ow ledgin g t ha t he
believ es polit ics pl ay ed a
"disturbing part " in resistance
to the project , Dr. Bersi charged
that its opponents failed to focus
on the " real issues " involved.
"They kept using dropping student enrollment figures , using
only part of the data , the state 's
18-year old students," he said.
" They kept talking about a $250
million concept which our own
Board of Trustees in September
1975turne d away from ."
Dr . Bersi and other WestConn
proponents contend that their op-

position's data does not properly
represent WestConn enrollme nt,
which includes large numbers of
and older nontraditional student s. They also
stress that the college is no
longer seeking a complete new
ca mpus comple x on the Mill
Plain Road site , but instead a
dormit or y and classroom
building to ease over-crowding on
the present camp us.
Phil Capozzi, legislative liaison
to Hartfor d , also ex pres sed
pleasure with Fr iday's outcome .
The tough opp ositi on from
Stolberg and DeNardis at the
meeting , Capozzi said, came as
no surprise.

Letters To The Editor

A thank yo_ note to Ella
Thank you, Governor Grasso.
We were skeptical of your support for the Westside
campus in the past - we Were critical of your every
move. But we were scared, scared that what was heard
coming from Hartford would prove to be no more than
campaign promises uttered in the last minutes before
election .
We were wrong. And ever so glad we were.
By your support at last week's Bond Commission
meeting, it was clear that your committment to higher
education, in particular for western Connecticut, the
fastest growing region in the state both in population
and corporate growth, is an unwavering one.
And in return for your support, you have ours when
the need arises.
Our thanks are also extended to Dr. Robert Bersi, this
college's president. Without his diligent, earnest, sincere and consistent appeals , presentations and pleas to
city, state and community leaders, WestConn would
have never achieved the degree of success it has today .
Our area lawmakers - Sen. Wayne Baker, Rep. Jim
Dyer, Rep. Joe Wolkovich and Rep. Clarise Osieki- all
deserve our thank-you as well.
Their constant lobbying and support for Westside certainly helped assure the outcome of last week's vote.
And let's not forget the students.
Individuals such as Ray Lubus and Phil Capozzi, who
were instrumental in organizing the funeral, are worthy
of the highest praise possible.
The countless hours they spent on that project were
well worth it. The funeral was undoubtedly the ~ost impressive turnout of WestConn students in anyone's
memory. A fact we can all be proud of, because we all
played a part in it.

Let's use it
Virtually everyone agrees that the concept of the
new WestConn campus , conceived more than a decade
ago, is obsolete for this day and age.
For economic reasons , the 15-year-old plan can
never materialize the way it was once envisioned. Construction costs have soared to such astronomical highs
that the cost of a single building is staggering.
And if that weren 't enough, Westside opponents have
vowed to make it as difficult as possible for anything
more than the already approved classroom building to
be built on the Mill Plain Road site.
But this isn't to say we will never use the 260-acre
tract. Eventually, classes will be taught there and students will live there - as a Hartford newspaper called
it, Westside will become a "satellite" campus of
But let's not wait any longer to use that land which
belongs to us.
The funeral held there three weeks ago proved that
students want to use their campus now, since most of
them won't be here to enjoy and benefit from the new
facilities when they are finally built.
Why not have open-air classrooms at Westside? Outdoor concerts? A clambake, perhaps? Maybe even a
graduation .
Westside belongs to us. We have a right to use it. The
Student Government should check into these and other
ideas on how we can use it now.

We will not publish a letter unless we
know who has written 1t, but will consider
withholding. the name of the writer Letters should be typewritten and double

Three Hearts - Bob Welch
Bob Welch is repetitous as hell.
There are 10 new songs on this
album, but you need the blank
spaces between the tracks to
know where one begins and
another leaves off .
He is repetitous to the point of
putting two remakes of older
songs on this album. " Come Softly to Me" was made 20 years
ago . This song is so straightforward and simple that there is
no point in remaking it . No point
in expecting Stevie Nicks and
Christie McVie to carry it for
Welch, talented as they are .
"I Saw Her Standing There " is
a horrible , lifeless version of a
great song that deserves a better
fate than this. Welch couldn 't

into their songs , so we just have
to settle for a little extra
As with " Sentimental Lady "

to the contrary, "If You Can't

boy 's we run across all too often.
The Robert Stigwood Organization has left its mark , how€ver ,
as this record is unmistakenly
mellower than Suzi is known for.
Thi s is not to say that Suzi is well
known. After two albums in the
mid-70s that only did moderately
well, Quatro dropped out of sight
for a while . Somehow she got into
television as Leather Tuscadero
on " Happy Days ".
If she recove rs from that , it

This attempt to change her style

not convincing.

''A Call T o Live'' seeks truth
by Fred Hammond

The SGA-sponsored multimedia presentation " A Call to
Live" held March 14 in the Ives
Auditorium was well-attended ,
SGA President Ray Lubus said .
The show gave no answers , but
challenged the audience by raising " questions of existence "
through photography of nature,
beginning with a time-lapsed
sunrise over an ice-encrusted
hill .
Glenn Johnson , creator of the
show, said, " I broke the rules of
. photography . I wanted the pictures to represent what is there
without twisting it , to have the
effects come about naturally .
" I wanted to capture the
beauty that is there without trying to make the viewer feel a certain way about what is the picture ," he said.
Lubus called the slide show a
" very good mixture of excellent
, music
meaningful commentary. ' '
A personal friend of Johnson's,
Lubus added that the show "had
more meaning to me because I
could understand it more . The
entire piece reflects the growth

Memorial Hall is our building,
and can only serve us as long as
we maintain it. Toward this effort , let us all work together. A
good start would be to recognize
the rules presently in effect
regarding all aspects of the
bulding. We will keep the campus
up-to-date on the further developments regarding House Rules ,
that will be approved by the BOG
for the '79-'80 school year , and
that will therefore go into effect
in the summer and fall.

The theme of the presentation
was questions that are common
to all men - is there somethin g
that lies beyond myself ? Is it
chance that we are here ?
Following the show one student
commented , "Our eyes are so
geared to one thing on our way to
class that we do not see the
beauty around us."
When asked why he presented
this at the college , Johnson
replied , "Isn't college the place
to see the truth ? Why you're
alive? What is truly right and
wrong? Can it just be the place to
all the things you always wanted
to do and avoid the real issues
because you think you can deal
with them later ?
" A place of education ,"
Johnson added, " has to be more
than a place to memor ize a stan -

dard. "
Johnson said " A Call to Live"
was put together " not to give
answers but to ask the right questions. There are concepts greater

College is a Killer?
Attending college may be
hazardous to your health .
Like a sniper shooting ran domly into a crowd, suicide kills
thousands of college students
every year .
People who attend college have
at least a 50% greater chance of
dying by suicide than do young
people in the same age group who
do not attend college .
" With the suicide rate among
young people almost tripling in 20
years ," says Dr . Marv Miller , a
consultant in suicidology based in
San Diego, " it appear s tha t a
near epidemic of self-dest rucitve
behavior is now evident in the
United States ."
Suicide is now considered the
second leading cause of death on
American campuses in 1978 with
a strong possibility that many accidents which take lives are instead disguised suicides . For obvious reason s, it is much mor e
favorable to list a death as an accident rather than a suicide.
What can you do to help? Learn
the warning signs of suicide and
be presistent
in obtaini ng
profes ,sional assistance for a
friend when you spot the clues in
his/ her life.
One of the strongest clues is a
previous attempted suicide , especially if the attempt was
serious enough to have caused
death .
Related behavioral clues are
the typical symptoms such as
loss of : the ability to sleep, concentration , energy , sex drive , appetite , and zest for life .
Sometimes college students in
a presuicidal state will give away
a valued possession , such as a
stereo set or a pair of expensive
skis , and say , " Take this . I won't
be needing it anymore ."
Situational clues might include
the sudden
of a
relationship with a spouse/ lover ,
a drastic drop in grades , being
fired from a job which the student needs in order to remain in

school, or loss of other financial
assistance .
When several of these danger
signals ar e present , Miller urges
friend s of the troubled student to
contact the student health or
counselling service , a crisis center , or a community mental
health center as quickly as possible. Time counts!
He emphas izes that the longer
you hesitate to seek help for a
potentialy suicidal friend , the
less likelihood there is that you'll
ever have a second chance to be

math clinic
by Jim Seri

a slow start,
WestConn's math clinic should
serve more students as more
people on campus know that the
service is available, according to
Dr. Bruce King, who runs the
Dr . King, a professor of
mathematics , said that about a
half-dozen students have visited
the clinic so far . He added that
these students have requested
help approximately 15-20times.
" Wha
twe mean to do is to be
available to help students, " Dr.
King said. "If a student has a
specific problem , such as with a
homework problem or with a formula, we can help in almost any
math course up to calculus.
" We can't help someone who
might come in now and say 'I
don't understand anything', " he
continued. " But we can help
someone who has a problem in a
particular area."
The clinic, which is open from
2 to 4 p.m. each day that classes
are in session in Room 012 of
Higgins Hall Annex, has been in
operation since Feb. 26.
" Some things are slow in
getting off the ground," Dr. King
said of the response to the clinic,
" especially when people don't
know about them."
" Usage will increase if people
know that this service is
available ," Dr. King predicted .
"As time goes on, we hope for
more students to come in."
Dr. King is assisted at the
clinic by Debra Roy, a math major in her junior year .

WestConn's radio station
WXCI went off the air Sunday
night at 11:00.
The station is moving its
transmitter from the attic of

The added height will give the
station almost double the
range it has had until now.
WXCl's Chief Engineer, Jay
Fink, estimated that the station will be off the air "a cou1

listeners to check 91.7 their
FM radio Wednesday or
Thursday morning.
Mike Grady,
Manager , said that he was
very excited about the move.
" It's the culmination of a
