WHO UP YûC
We would like to congratulate the Associated Stu
dent Government on the success of Jack White's visit
to Clackamas Community College last week.
Jack White, holder of an honorary degree in Poolology,
sparked a week's worth of involvement from the student
body. Some people were tempted to notify Ripley of
believe it or not fame.
Over 200 students participated in the pool tourna
ment and who knows how many people White touched
through his seminars and exhibitions.
White took time to talk to students with questions or
who just wanted to "rap" with him. ASG should be
praised for their selection of White and their efforts to
make CCC one of his few week-long stops.
White also proved to have a streak of generosity.
After being approached to endorse a local product at
the college he offered to donate ten percent of his
royalties, up to $2,000, to go toward the purchase of a
wheel chair lift. This is to be used to give handicapped
students an opportunity to attend classes in upstairs
Does anybody remember the last time a real humani
tarian visited the college?
A lot of people have been complaining that they don't
have anything to do during prime time television on the
second Wednesday of each month.
Well, we have a solution to that problem. They can go
to a meeting of Clackamas Community College's Board
The board meets on the right day and at the right
time, although the board has been known to extend their
meetings into the wrong time.
If the public in attendance gets lucky, they might
have a chance to soak in some interesting repartee be
tween board members. Especially between Dr. John
Hakanson, college president, and Ralph "Shoot-from-
These people will also have a chance to see if the
elected members are doing a good job representing their
Actually, we haven't heard many complaints concern
ing what to do on the second Wednesday evening of
each month but we think that every student, staff
member and faculty member and/or member of the
community should attend at least one of these meetings.
Even though some might spell the group's name

Fellow students, I have a dream. It is a building pistil

In each room you will find a Hayes Griffith, (U of Ore) ul]

To the Editor:
I think it would be unfortunate not to provide some clarifi]
of the McLoughlin-Randall Bridge referred to in Jay Haight's]
to the editor in last week's Cougar Print.
First of all, the purpose of the proposed bridge has nothing]
with cold winters or imitating PSU. Its purpose is to provide]
additional classrooms, additional instructor office space, an]
proved wheelchair access to the west side of Randall through th]
of the McLoughlin elevator.
Secondly, federal funds to cover the entire cost of the bridgjI
being applied for from the Local Public Works Capital Develop]
and Investment Program, and the bridge was chosen because]
the cost and the time required to develop plans were within]I
guidelines established for application for the funding.
It is easy to understand Mr. Haight's concern about label-
ment; however, the federal funds are available specifically for]
struction projects such as the bridge, and cannot be used for]
