'With qrouth by ^Pamela Swift New Expression American youths, who are quick to integrate new expressions into their lexicons, are now using "wa- tergate" as a synonym for "ripoff," which means to steal. "Don't watergate me, Jack," means don't compromise me; don't make me a heavy; don't involve me in any conspiracy to burglarize, lie, or pull a fast one. "Don't watergate my cigarettes or lighter," means don't steal them. "Are you trying to pull a watergate on me?" means are yon trying to involve me in something illegal? Watergate is rapidly developing into one of the most active verbs in the youth idiom. Police Compos Unrest Three years after the killing of students at Kent State University and Jackson State College, a special committee of the American Association of University Professors, appointed to study the causes and implications of the 1970 campus tragedies, recently reported that colleges and universities are endangered by the growing tendency to call in police and to rely on court injunctions when trouble develops. The committee recommends that no one be appointed head of a college who does not have an adequate understanding of security and police procedures. "At Kent and Jackson," the committee reports, "rapid expansion of campus security -forces had become almost a reflet response to student unrest. If one seeks to restore harmony and confidence to a divided and trottbled campus, the doubling of the number of blue uniforms and black cars seen by students may increase rather than reduce tensions? The report suggests the development of better communications bettceen colleges and government In retrospect, the problems at Kent and Jackson inspired a wave of reactionary legislation at the state level. Hoose Fooe Carl Albert, Speaker o.f the House and a hawk on the U S. involvement in Vietnam, has made a peace offering to the female sex He has appointed Felda Looper, 18, of Heavener, Okla., his home state, the first female page in the House of Representatives. Three years ago, Albert reports, Felda wrote him a letter stating that there were no girl pages in the House of Representatives and urged him to do something about it. Now he has. The House thereupon joins the Senate and the Supreme Court in employing girl pages. ·*· ·*· Cassidy Fights his Image f)avid Cassidy wants to change his image. The 23-year-old singer, irritated that relatively few of his fans are beyond the age of 14, wants to record more mature songs and to work in more adult entertainment. A TV bit-actor before he became a regular on "The Partridge Family," Cassidy has sold more than 10 million recordings in the past year. Overnight, an industry devoted to separating little girls from their allowances developed around him. Anxious to earn a fortune, Cassidy agreed to let his voice be electronically altered so that it would sound higher and therefore younger. But now Cassidy is changing. He's fired his public relations man, discarded his record producer; in short, is breaking out of his profitable cocoon. A few months ago, on tour in Europe, he hit the nightclub circuit, smoked cigars, drank wine, lived it up as befitting his age. "It's been difficult." he says, "projecting an image which doesn't coincide wtih my age, outlook, taste, and interests/' But it's also been tremendously profitable.
