Buchanan to Speak at Whittier By Adam Webster Copy Editor Ever since Pat Buchanan announced his candidacy for President of the United States, junior Tony Strickland has been trying to get him on campus. In early May, Strickland's work will become evident when Buchanan will speak, free of charge, in the Activities Center. Strickland, President of the Richard M. Nixon Republican Club, said that it was a long road to get Buchanan, but his contacts proved helpful, especially Sergio Picchio who is a friend of Bay Buchanan, Pat's sister and campaign manager. Strickland called Picchio in order to get into a small reception last Friday where he met the Buchanans. It was at this gathering that he asked them about the possibility of Pat Buchanan speaking. "I (told Pat Buchanan) 'Our club would be honored to have (him) come out here and speak to our College,'" Strickland said. After Strickland left, Picchio said he would talk with Bay and, Saturday morning, freshman Joey Baca, whom Strickland said helped a lot in the past few months by making ■HHNhMBS ifaiifeB ■ 0Wm0§m iillliflliA WBmmmmlsi mimmmm HHHI mmSS^Smfiim A: :^M^S HBP, Republican Presidential candidate Pat Buchanan will speak at the College in May. appearances at conventions so the Club would get known, received a phone call from the national organizers of Buchanan's campaign confirming Buchanan would speak. The speech was initially set for April 20, but the national organizers for Buchanan moved it to early May due to a scheduling conflict. Strickland said that President Nixon's link with the College probably helped persuade Buchanan to speak because Buchanan worked as a speech writer for the Nixon Administration. "I knew it was a long shot to get Pat Buchanan, but I tried every angle," Strickland said. This included mailing letters of support and offering help as soon as Buchanan announced he was running and also contacting all of the California organizers for Buchanan hoping one would be able to get Buchanan. The Orange County Organizers said they might be able to do something, but only if Strickland could guarantee 250 people and would charge $500 a plate. However, Strickland knew that that was not a feasible option for College students, so he went through his connections. "I've supported Pat Buchanan from the start. He has a vision that other candidates don't have. He helped me form my conservative views," Strickland said. Buchanan gained exposure through being a syndicated columnist and was aregular on CNN's "Crossfire", "McGlaughlin Group" and "Capitol Gang." He also worked in the Nixon and Reagan Administrations. "He is very personable. He jokes around a lot and I think he's going to be great for the College," Strickland said. "I encourage as many people to come, for and against," Strickland added. The event will also be open to the community free of charge and the Secret Service will provide security. Orthogonian Alumni Introduce Proposal By Adam Webster Copy Editor The Orthogonian Alumni Association submitted a proposal to the Society Advisory Board last Friday asking lor a two-year reduction in the society's three-year probation, allowing for a new member education class in the spring of 1993. Steve Gothold, Society Advisory Board chairperson mid Dean of College Life, saia that the proposal outlines why the Society feels they shouid be reinstated. "(The Orthogonians) have activated and involved a group of responsible alumni that a^e willing to take on the meaningful supervision of the society, not only during new member education, but year round," Gothold said. The letter also implies that "under the leadership of those alumni (since last June), the Orthogonians have completely restructured their New Member Education Program and submitted it to me and I found it exemplary. They did everything I asked every society to do." Gothold said that the Orthogonians totally restructured their New Member Education program by starting over from the beginning aiid laying down new policies. The proposed program is in compliance with state laws, the College's rules and the Ad Hoc Committee's recommendations last year, according to Gothold. Junior Kevin McGlynn, Orthogonian President, said: "I think that what the alumni have done in cooperation with the actives is what the Administration has asked of us and the alumni have requested that we be returned to the status of an active society so we can prove our intent." The main issues are to get a pledge class in 1993 and to get reinstated to do activities on campus, McGlynn said. Gothold said that the Orthogonians point out in their proposal that "it is very important to alumni and actives to establish continuity," Gothold said. 'They feel that a two- or three-year suspension from (a new member education class) Please see ALUMNI on page 3 President's Day Draws Large Crowd I * 1 Hf«ff SpliRPii* SBirfj||§§ '~~~ "m%0m Hi VfLnanl mwmm -IP Hffli PS nHv, SHI WoOmjmdl/FWcE&tw Numerous admitted students and their families attended President's Day at .he College on Sunday.
