“Hey, man,4 just got an off-campus part-time job.”
“Oh really? What are you doing?”
“Answering phones, typing and greeting people. It
pays about $3.25 an hour. I really needed some extra
cash, so I had to find something.”
“I thought you wanted to be a salesperson some
day.”
“Do you know how hard it is to find a job, let alone
in the field you want? It took trie a week to find this
one and it’s located about 10 miles from where I live
as it is.”
“It’s too bad you didn’t know about College Work
Study. You might have found a good job'in your field
right here on campus.”

“Oh, I have a work study award, but it didn’t pay as
much as this job does.”
“Beginning Nov. 11 work study minumum wage
will go to $3.00 an hour with the possibility of ear­
ning about $300 more than before. Besides, don’t
you think you spend that extra amount in transpor­
tation and time? You don’t have to go anywhere else
with an on-campus job, you know. Beside’s that,
off-campus payroll deductions are outrageous!”
“Boy that makes my $3.25 an hour look like what
my father made during the depression . Too bad he
didn’t qualify for College Work.Study.”

Honest Bob
vs. Tricky Vic
Editor’s Note: This article was printed as
an editorial in the Oct. 27 issue of the Vanguard, the
bi-weekly student newspaper at Portland State
University.
Is it 1978 or 1968?
Many Oregon citizens, basking in progressive state
traditions going back almost 20 years, seem blind to
the threat posed by the coming election.
What happened at the national level some ten
years ago has suddenly hatched in a state famous for
its enlightened and humane laws.
Then, as now, the hue and cry was reactionary;
issues like law and order have been reborn here as
measures seeking to cripple land use planning,
restore the death penalty, and abolish state funding
for abortions.
In addition, Measure 6 threatens to wipe out
Oregon’s far-sighted homeowner and renter relief
program with a near-sighted solution.
And as happened a decade earlier, the reactionary
movement has spawned a candidate to match its
mood.
Tricky Dick has been replaced by Tricky Vic.
Like the Nixon campaign, Atiyeh’s run is heavily
financed by wealthy right-wing business and special­
interest industries (like timber).
Atiyeh’s legislative record reveals a man .of
vacillating postures and opportune changes of
opinion.
His campaign, like Nixon’s is all rhetorical fluff
and obfuscation. Slogans like “It’s time for Atiyeh”
are as vapid as Nixon’s “Four more years.”
Straub, on the other hand, is a leader of
unquestioned integrity. His support of Oregon’s
progressive laws has been consistent and effective.
His record as governor is outstanding. Em­
ployment has dropped from 12 to five percent since
he took office. With his help, some 54 new in­
dustries have been recruited to the state, and 79
existing industries expanded — all without undue
cost to the environment.
Straub has helped the elderly, and hired women
and minorities in government. He has been stronger
in his support for human rights than any previous
Oregon governor.
Atiyeh’s slogans, his slick style, pale in com­
parison to the concrete achievements of the Straub
administration.
The choice is clear: honest Bob or tricky Vic.
Commentary
Favors 11
If Ballot measure 6 passes, it
will cut back so sharply on the
money available for schools
that something will obviously
have to give. At Clackamas
Community College, the first
thing to go will most probably
be the new science building.
Although the voters agreed last
year that the new building
should be built, there are strong
indications that it will not be
funded if Measure 6 passes. If
you don’t know why we need
this building, a visit to Orchard
Center should help you to un-
detstand.
Another direct effect on
students will most likely be -a
raise in tuition and/or the
establishment of “user” fees#
fees for use of labs., fees for
breakage, etc. While not large
individually, these costs can
add up to a noticeable increase
in what you pay for your
education.
Many of you are veterans.
Somewhere between 6,000
and 7,000 veterans every
month receive loans for homes
or farms through the state’s
veterans loan program.
Oregon’s attorney general has
stated that this program would
be severely damaged by the
passage of Ballot Measure 6.
If you rent your home or
apartment, Measure 6 will cut
your landlord’s property tax
bill. But there is absolutely no
requirement that your rent be
lowered and no refund to.™
for the portion of yourl
which helps pay pro]
taxes.
If you own property ana
that you need proper#
relief , look into Ballot Mel
11. It will give you more M
with much less severe efl
on the services, (police! lit
and schools) which are ft™
from property taxes.
