Federal Student Aid on the
Rise If Senate Committee
Bill Approved
Christine Tatum
College Press Service
The Senate Labor and Human Relations Committee approved a bill
that would extend the Higher Education Act another five years.
The bill, which is expected to go to the full Senate later this month,
would increase the amount spent on Pell Grants and would decrease the
costs of education loans to students. But its passage is not guaranteed
because the Clinton Administration disagrees with s o m e of the bill's
provisions, which it says are too generous to bankers.
The m a x i m u m Pell Grantforthe 1998-99 school year is set at$3,000,
but the bill proposes that that amount be increased to $5,000 in time for
the 1999-2000 academic year, and increased by an additional $200
each of the following four years.
A m o n g the bill's other provisions:
- T h e suspension of student-aid for people convicted of drug offenses.
- Wider eligibility standards for Pell Grants. The proposed legislation
would net more students w h o are financially independent of their parents
and more dependent students w h o work in addition to going to college.
The bill would increase from $3,000 to «$4,250 the amount of m o n e y
independent students could earn and still qualify for a grant. The bill also
would increase from $1,750 to $2,200 the amount of earnings a dependent student could exclude from statements about his or her family's
- A limit on the amount of time students can receive aid. Full-time
students would lose their grants if they remained in school for more than
six years.
- The forgiveness of student-loan debt up to $10,000 for graduates
w h o teach for three years in a school with a large representation of lowincome families.
- Extend the amount of time lenders must give students w h o are more
than $30,000 in debt to repay their loans. Currently, students have 10
years. The bill proposes they get 25 years instead.
- Mandate that colleges and universities disclose to the public more
detailed financial information so that students and their parents can
m a k e more informed choices. Colleges failing to provide such information would be fined up to $25,000 for each offense.
- The authorization of $10 million in grants for colleges needing to
improve their facilities to better meet the needs of disabled students.
M u c h of a recent discussion focused on another of the bill's provisions, which would lower the interest rates students would have to pay
on th©ir loans. Republicans and Democrats agree that the rates should
be cut, but they don't see eye-to-eye on h o w to lower them.
Republicans have proposed to offset the lower interest rates by
increasing the amount of subsidies the government pays lenders to help
cover their costs. But Democrats have complained that the tactic would
benefit banks at the expense of taxpayers, w h o would have to shell out
\ m o r e m o n e y to pay the higher subsidies.

There are several causes for prejudice: socialization, self-justification, personality,
frustration, competition, and social norms. T o look at h o w socialization is related to prejudice,
first w e need to know, "what is socialization"? S o m e say socialization is, "individuals acquiring
the values, attitudes, and perceptions of their culture or subculture, including religion, nationality, and social class."
Socialization starts at the very beginning of your life, as you are an infant and it continues throughout your life. The attitudes, beliefs, and perceptions of your parents are thrust
upon you. Children w h o are impressionable and know of no alternative conceptions of the
world, accept their parents' concepts.
Parents are older and were raised in a different time than their children will be. Life is
constantly changing, and a person must change with the times. Most people have a hard time
changing with the time, so they continue to think of h o w things used to be and continue to
think things should stay the w a y they always have been.
Justification is defined as the act of being freed of blame; the act of being absolved.
Therefore, self-justification is justification from yourself and is a form of prejudice. Being led to
believe that you are better than another person, you m a y feel inferior to another person.
Feeling inferior to persons of another race, color, class, religion, or gender, m a y cause you to
maltreat these other people. Because of your belief that you are better than these other
people, you have given yourself justification for the maltreatment of these people.
S o m e have claimed that if w e are able to convince ourselves that another group is
inferior, immoral, or dangerous, then w e feel justified in discriminating against them, enslaving
them, or even killing them. Prejudices are not worth fearing for your life.
Fear for life is a basic instinct for h u m a n beings. W e m a y fear for our lives w h e n
"mother nature" is having a bad day, when w e are on a plane, when w e are on the highway, or
w h e n there is no cure for a disease.
Others fear their lives simply because they look different from other people. I know
this s e e m s odd, but it is true. A w o m a n and her husband were attacked in San Francisco. A
gang believed they looked like a homosexual couple and began to beat them up. The gang
stopped physically harming the couple when the w o m a n raised her shirt to expose her
A gentleman w a s beaten on a bus w h e n he w a s perceived to be homosexual. This
gentleman sued the city transportation department because the bus driver kicked him off of
the bus after the gang attacked'him. H e w a s hurt badly and stayed in the hospital for a week.
In both of these instances, none of the victims were homosexual. They were treated
terribly because they looked different. W h a t does a homosexual look like anyway? A boy
w h o looks like a girl? A girl w h o looks like a boy? Is it h o w a person acts?
W h a t gives one h u m a n being the right to physically harm another h u m a n being?
There is no excuse for physically harming anyone or anything. H o w would you like walking
around and feeling as if you were not safe? What kind of world do w e live in when you cannot
even feel safe walking around your campus? H o w would you feel if it were you w h o were
perceived to be homosexual?

competition by the University of Oklahoma Advertising club.
Southeastern brought h o m e six awards making them the
most decorated school. They also tied with the University of
Oklahoma for winning three Genie (first place) awards.
All of the students entries were created while enrolled in
advertising and public relations classes taught by Dr. Bob
Hays, professor of communication.
"Preparing the competition material w a s fun and I w a s
pleasingly surprised with h o w well w e did on a national level,"
Jason Smith, sophmore communication/media studies/
broadcasting major, said.
Four awards were w o n by T a m m y Blanton, Sherman, Tx.;
senior communication/advertising/public relations major. She
w a n two Genie awards in the Newsletter and Magazine Ad
categories. S h e picked up Merit awards in the Corporate
Jentity and Special Events categories.
Another Genie w a s w o n by the creative team that consisted
of Lisa Riddles, Bennington junior communication/advertising/
public relations major and three former S O S U students; Tim
White, Jason Soliz, and J.J. Lanpher (all communication/
advertising/public relations majors). A n Award of Merit w a s
given to Jason Smith, Duncan, in the radio competition. For
the past five years Southeastern has dominated the Radio
Competition, receiving four Genies and two Awards of Merit.
The students entries and awards will soon be displayed on
the second floor of the Fine Arts building near room 202.

O H R Media Specialist Speaks to Students
Aimee Woulfe
Former Southeastern student Jay Paul G u m m , senior
media specialists, Oklahoma House of Representatives, spoke
for two communication courses on Tuesday, April 21.
Jay Paul G u m m is a native of Durant and graduated from
Southeastern in 1986 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political
science with minor fields of study in communication and
"Public relations is changing almost daily. Public relationsd
just isn't writing news releases anymore," said G u m m . " W e
produce full blown radionewscasts that any radio station can
drop onto their program."
G u m m is the chief speech writer whose duties are writing
news releases and weekly summaries of legislation and
members' newspaper columns; producing radio news stories;
providing image consulting for representatives; producing
desktop publishing and design projects; designing, programming, managing and updating h o m e page (which is designed
in blue and gold fromgumm's Southeastern background) on
the Internet for the Media Division.
'These are the things w e do right n o w but w e are not
limited to them," added G u m m .
G u m m spoke to students about the duties of media divi- sion of the Oklahoma House of Representatives. H e also
spoke on the changes in thepublic relations field and its
diverse jobs and duties that weren't originally part of the
meida or public relations fields.
"It w a s really interesting to hear about the public relations
and media fileds within the House of Reprsenatives. There is
a lot more to the job than one would expect," Jason Smith, sophmore communication major, said.
W h e n asked what is the most important thing students
should do when preparing for a career in public relations
G u m m replied: "Get as many skills as you possibly can."
