Apri122, at State University College at Cortland. The address, open to the public and free of charge, will be at 7 p.m. in the College's ROO-seat Ralph A. Brown Auditorium in Old Main.

Some even have cred- ited him with being the major influ- ence behind the establishment ofthe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1970.

Since the mid-1960's, Nader's outspoken opposition to corporate and governmental policies has re- sulted in legislative action on the state and federal levels. Most frequently, he is identified as a consumer advocate, having been thrust into the forefront of the con- sumer movement with the publica- tion of \Unsafe at any Speed\ in 1965. He has had a profound impact on the safety consciousness of the alllo- mobile industry and corporations generally and his brand of consum- erism has been brought to bear on practically every aspect of the gov- ernmental decision making process. y\.s a direct result of his involve- mebt; all automobiles today have Nader's appearance at Cortland is sponsored jointly by the Campus Artist and Lecture Series and the Student Activity board.
