    McTeague guest
at ASG meeting
Dave
McTeague,
democratic Congressional can­
didate for the newly formed
Fifth District spoke at last
Thursday’s ASG meeting,
naming education and peace
as the most important issues in
the upcoming elections.
McTeague feels student
loans and aid need to be
restored. “I would not have
made it through school without
student loans. It is pretty
basic,” McTeague said.
JHe said without restoring
aid, we’re “Keeping people
away from education.”
On the peace issue,
McTeague spoke about the
situation in Central America
saying, we are told “it is some
kind
of
East/West
confrontation—that is a big lie.”
McTeague further stated that it
is the same kind of situation we
had in Vietnam.
“We need to have an all
volunteer military until there is
a national emergency,”
McTeague said, speaking on
the draft.
McTeague is very
outspoken against republican
candidate Denny Smith, label­
ing him an .“ultra-right can­
didate.” McTeague also called
Smith a “champion of the New
Right.”
In his fight against the New
Right, McTeague uses the
slogan, “Fight back to save
America.”
McTeague said, • “I have
the most active record” in. the
Democratic running. He is cur­
rently Oregon’s Democratic
National Committeeman, and
was a delegate to the National
Democratic Conventions in
1972, 1974; and 1980.
McTeague also worked as
a Legislative Aide to Senator
Office along with many other students of the College. Staff photo by Duane Hiersche

‘Spiritual economics’ discussed
By Tracy Sumner
Of The Print
“The Economic Crisis
from a Spiritual Perspective”
was the theme of a lecture
given by Dr. Dan Popov last
Wednesday in CC 101. The
discussion was sponsored by
the Baha’i Club of Clackamas
Community College •
Popov, holder of a Ph.D.
in Clinical Psychology, stated
that the world economic crisis
of today is being used by God
to point mankind to Himself
arid greater unity with each
other.
“The economic crisis isn’t
the beginning of the end, but
the end of a beginning,” he
said. “If you really look at the
world today, you can see it
really makes sense and isn’t just
chaos: God is, in control and
He’ll use every situation to His
advantage.”
The Baha’i faith began in
Persia in 1844AD when a
young man known as “the
Bab” or “Gate” announced
that he was the fulfillment of
prophecy and was to prepare
the way for the appearance of
the revealer of the word of
God, who would usher in an
age of peace for all mankind.
Thirteen years after the
death of the Bab, Baha’U llah,
while in exile in Baghdad in
1863, announced his own
revelation, and now is known
as the founder of the Baha’i
religion.

all mankind” and eventually

“Eventually it will be called

on the way we are much

Book exchange set
Studerits who feel they’re
being ripped off by selling their
books back to the bookstore
and only getting half of what
they originally paid should try
using the new book exchange
that is being sponsored by the
Associated Student Govern­
ment.
Students will get a chance
to price their books at what
they think is reasonable and be
able to sell or exchange that
book with another student.
“We adapted the idea
from Chemeketa Community
College,” said Paul Nastari,
ASG Senator. “The program is
really well-liked at Chemeketa
and we decided to give it a try
here at Clackamas.
/‘Students interested in the
exchange should bring their
books to the Student Activities
office March 15-18 to be sold
or exchanged,” he explained.
The dates for buying or ex­
changing the books will be
March 29-April 1 and April 5-8
from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
“We’re trying to allow
students a chance to sell back
their books for more money
than the bookstore gives back
and also to save the students
money,” Nastari said. “The
students who decide to use the
book exchange won’t be able to
sell their books back to the
bookstore and also the time to
pick up their money and un­
sold books will be April 12-16.
r /ASG is trying to show the
students
we’re
doing
something for them,” Nastari
commented, “the Book Ex­
change will be more beneficial
for all students in the long run.”
For more information on
the book exchange, interested
students should contact the
Student Activities Office..
