Ex-Banker is Shaking Up Steel

Mary Beth Deily, associate professor of economics at Lehigh, was quoted in an article about Wilbur L. Ross’s turnaround company. “I’m not a specialist in him personally. But in the steel industry, he’s having a major impact. I’d say the major impact is to increase the pressure on other firms, to win the types of concessions and new deals he’s been doing.”

Volunteers to Tackle Trash on South Side

Residents and Lehigh University students clad in work clothes and armed with trash bags are set to scour the city Saturday morning for the annual South Side Cleanup. The cleanup is sponsored by the task force, the university's Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity and the Bethlehem Department of Parks and Public Property. "The kids from Lehigh have been a godsend to us. They've done a great job," Roger Hudak, chairman of the Mayor's South Side Task Force, said of Alpha Phi Omega members, who coordinated the meal, reserved the lot space and planned other event details. "The main reason for this is to get a better understanding and a better sense of community between the Lehigh students and the city residents. We'll become more of a college town," he said.
