profs say
Democratic presidential candidate
Walter Mondale's performance in Sun-
day night's debate was good but may
not be enough to overcome President
Reagan's lead in the polls, several
University political science professors
said yesterday.
Though most of the professors said
Mondale won the debate, they said it's
simply a case of too little, too late.
"THIS DEBATE has a plus effect on
the Mondale camp, but not as great an
effect as the last one," political science
Prof. John Campbell said.
Accordin to political science Prof.
Donald Kinder, the contest's importan-
ce centered upon how badly Reagan
might do and not on whether Mondale
would win.
"Mondale needed Reagan to give a
stumbling, bumbling performance,"
Kinder said. "And Reagan didn't give
him that."
"The expectations created out of the
first debate imprisoned Mondale. He
had no chance of meeting the expec-
tations in the second debate. He had to
W win decisively, and he didn't do that. In
that sense he lost," Kinder said.
While most experts said Reagan's
performance was greatly improved
over the first debate, several professors
said he made a few mistakes. One weak
point, they said, was the question about
CIA manuals for Nicaraguan rebels.
"Reagan's answer was pretty
pitiful," Campbell said. "He kind of
ducked and flubed the answer."
KINDER agreed with Campbell's
"His conclusion was a mess. It was
rambling, and he didn't finish in time

Harvey Holtz, chairman of IUP's sociology and an-
thropology department on the southwestern Pennsylvania
campus for 12,000 students, sees only isolated student events
aimed at social and political change. A vacuous conser-
vatism on campuses makes him think students are "really
ripe for fascism."
"There's been a tremendous change," said Holtz, noting

current (Reagan) administration. They're looking for ex-

He said that might explain the "tremendous interest in
ugliness," spurred by an author's light-hearted assertion that
IUP has the ugliest college males.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Education
Secretary T.H. Bell said yesterday that
a critique by a team of scholars shows
"American higher education has the
sniffles" and needs to take precautions
to avoid getting "a bad cold or even
But Bell said the diagnosis rendered
by the scholars was less harsh than he
had anticipated, and he said colleges
were not in as much difficulty as the
nation's elementary and secondary
are a bit like people: They can grow old
and top out and go to seed if they don't
renew and reinvigorate themselves
periodically," Bell said.
"American higher education has the
sniffles. It might come down with a bad
cold or even pneumonia if we don't do
something about it," he told reporters
at a news conference at George
Washington University.
Among the recommendations in the
report, "Involvement in Learning:
Realizing the Potential of American
Higher Education," are that colleges
devote more resources to teaching and
advising freshmen and sophomores;
that they make students pass proficien-
cy tests, not merely acquire course
credits, to get a .degree; and that all
students take at least two years of
liberal arts courses, even if that forces
them to extend their stay on campus
beyond four years.

higher education groups issued a
statement applauding the study and
expressing hope it would stir up as
much interest as "A Nation at Risk",
the study on high schools by a Bell
commission last year.
But they also said the report slighted
adult learners and gave the false im-
pression "that all of higher education is
composed of 18-21-year-olds all pur-
suing a baccalaureate degree." They
also took issue with the report's
statement that only half the students
who start college aiming for a
bachelor's degree "actually attain this
goal." The American Council on
Education said its statistics show that
65 percent of freshmen complete the
degree within five years and 75 percent
after 10 years.
The criticism came from the heads of
the council, the American Association
of State Colleges and Universities, The
National Association of Independent
Colleges and Universities, the
Association of American Colleges, and
the American Association of Com-
munity and Junior Colleges.
Rep. Paul Simon (D-Ill), the chair-
man of the House subcommittee on post
secondary education, defended
vocationally oriented courses, saying,
"Postsecondary education is an accep-
ted requirement for far more jobs than
it was 20 years ago."

simply overlay the goals of the past

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - A 23-
year-old man was arrested yesterday
and charged with murder and arson in
a fraternity house fire that killed an In-
diana University student and injured 34
people, authorities said.
Investigators said Jerry Zook, a non-
student, had fought with members of
the fraternity on Saturday night and
returned later to splash turpentine in
the fraternity house living room and set
it on fire.
THE PRE-DAWN fire at the Zeta
Beta Tau fraternity killed Israel
Edelman, 19, a sophomore at the
university's Richmond campus who
was a guest at the fraternity house
during homecoming weekend.
He died of smoke inhalation, accor-
ding to Monroe County Deputy Coroner
Dr. Tony Pizzo.
A nurse at Bloomington Hospital said
four fraternity members were admit-
ted, three with second-degree burns
and smoke inhalation, and the other
with wrist and back fractures and
smoke inhalation.

BEIRUT, Lebanon - Lebanese
President Amin Gemayel left on a
hurriedly arranged visit to Libya
yesterday at the invitation of Col
Moammar Khadafy, a brief palace
statement announced. It gave no ex-
planation for the surprise trip.
Before leaving, Gemayel headed an
emergency Cabinet session which
decided to close down illegal ports

operated by Lebanese militia groups.
The ports, a major cause of dissension
in the government, have cut into gover-
nment customs and duty revenues,-
diverting millions of dollars to
Christian and Moslem militias.
GEMAYEL and his party flew 125
miles by helicopter to the
Mediterranean island of Cyprus where
he boarded his presidential jet for
Libya. The jet had flown from Beirut
International Airport to Iarnaca, Cyp-
rus, earlier in the day.
Sources at Beirut airport said
Gemayel apparently decided to avoid
using the airport because of fighting in
the adjacent Palestinian refugee camp
of Bourj el-Barajneh.
Police said at least eight people were
killed and 14 wounded in battles that
began in the camp Sunday and con-
tinued, on and off, into last night.
CAMP residents said the fighting was
between Palestinians and Amal, the
military arm of Lebanon's ShiiteMoslem
community. Amal issued a statement
saying its people were not involved, but
Lebanese military sources said at least
some of the dead were Amal
At the time Gemayel was en route to
Cyprus, all approaches to the camp and
surrounding roads, including the main
airport highway, were sealed off by
Lebanese army troops who intervened
to halt the fighting.
Monday's visit to Libya was
Gemayel's second since he took office
in 1982. A group of opposition Lebanese

leaders headed by Druse leader Walid
Jumblatt visited that radical North
African nation last week.
strongly supported anti-government
forces in recent rounds of the nine-year-
old Lebanese civil war.
Yesterday's Cabinet session was
called in an attempt to arrest a rapid
deterioration of Lebanon's currency
and to discuss possible indirect talks
with Israel on security arrangements in
south Lebanon, which Israel has oc-
cupied since its invasion of Lebanon in
June 1982. The Lebanese pound has
gone from 5 to the dollar to more than 9
to the dollar in less than four months.
Also in Beirut yesterday, U.S.
diplomats were under tightened
security on the eve of the first anniver-
sary of the suicide bombing of the U.S.
Marine base in Beirut while five people
died in clashes between rival
Palestinian factions.
The U.S. Embassy in recent days has
cut its staff drastically because of con-
tinuing threats and fears that terrorists
might stage an attack before the Nov. 6
presidential elections to embarrass the
Reagan administration.
Embassy spokesman Jon Stewart
said the remaining U.S. diplomats were
under heavy guard on the eve of the
Oct. 23, 1983 suicide bombing of the U.S.
Marine base that killed 241 American

Seafood surprise
WHAT DID you have for dinner in the dorm last
night? Menus in the future could include
sausage made of seafood. It might sound fishy,
but the noint is that it doesn't taste that way.


to tell a difference between the fish sausage and regular
pork sausage, says Anderson and his family. The family
started experimenting with fish recipes shortly after An-
derson suffered three heart attacks and had to eliminate
foods high in cholesterol and fat. It took four years to per-
fect the sausage, which sells for 1.89 a pound at Anderson's
Fish Market. What's next for the Andersons? They're
working on a line of fish chili.

around her acting strangely. "He was sitting there laughing
so hard, then I saw this airplane and I about died," she said.

She got the idea from seeing painted animals at fairs in
other states, she said. Pixie didn't have to kump over the
moon to get attention when she arrived at the fair. Hun-

"I saw the purple cow at the Arizona State Fair." Pixie will
be on display for the rest of the week, Kerr said. Unless it
rains, that is.
