WE ACE INSULTED
Since The Merciad is the paper of a women's college,the "we" in We Are Insulted deals with women in general,college women in
particular.
And now that it has beensettled that we are among those insulted, let us determinejust how that is being done.We are insulted by the radio, the movies. Yet havewe ever stopped to consider that the writers of the network women's programs or "soap operas" must thinkus emotional "sops" and intellectual midgets? If theydid not believe this, surely they would not give us suchinane "mush." They assert that they write what is
expected.|
In other words, they insult us by declaringthat we are no better than the
programs!we
are givento listen to. And they are "pretty" bad.It is not necessary to point out the "awfully sad"misrepresentation of us given by the selfish, sophisticated clothes-horses of the
screen?
If we, if all women,were like those of
the
mo vies, the world would be filledwith every kind of neurotic and—maniac.
^
Less obvious is the insult
i hurledpat
us by thewoman's magazine. What right have the editors ofMademoiselle, Vogue to brand us as beings who have nointerest in life
beyond!
the clothes we wear, the cosmetics we like?
And^yet
that is the only grounds onwhich they appeal to us.We are insulted by
American
^entertainment,
salesorganizations on every hand. We are dragged down
every
ime the "American woman" is portrayed in pub
lic,
appealed to in private.
?
We are insulted and, for the most part, unfairly.Unfortunately in being womanly we dislike organizingagainst the "ladies" in the public eye. We are content tolive our lives privately while our
counterparts
live theirs
pub'icly
for all to see and be convinced.
WHAT*/
yCUC
BRACKET
The annual income tax reports will soon begin toproduce woeful headaches, jangled nerves, and stumpypencils. Yet it does
not
seem unfair that each individual who has earned his living in America should return part of his earnings as an investment to insure
conditions
necessary for his continued business or profession,
i
Y-
Women who belong to
ourfcolleges
have not yet begun to put into practice the arts and sciences they arelearning. They are
not;:'
yet self-supporting; and consequently do
noti
concern themselves with income taxes.But they should file a statement on the income derivedfrom the school in which they spend
from
one to fourpriceless years.
*
At
Mercyhurst
your income is based on
a^non-taxable
and immeasurable salary: the classes you attend, theassociates with whom you-mingle, the school activitieswhich prove fertile soil for your peculiar talents. Whenyou give your talents to the school, your school
1
will giveyou interest due* If you merit no income, remember thatyou cannot gain "something out of nothing."
"
The government derives its sustenance
from
the: public income; you, as a Mercyhurst student, have a perpetual income derived from your own talents workingthrough the school. Is it unjust for your school to expect some return for the opportunities it gives to you?The government asks such a tax on sources of income.(Excerpt from an essay by Alvina McDermott)
A
EKE$H START
The first semester of this year
is
nearly over. Withthe new term beginning in January come opportunitiesfor a fresh start in our college
careers—new
courses,new fields of interest, a new vista of school activities.Tt

a chance for us to revive the fresh enthusiasmfor work and play which we brought with
us m
September.
We were thrilled to
think
of the new
knowledge
we

KNOW'THEMS
We
call
ourselves college students; but would anyone recognize us as such by our actions?Recently we had the opportunity of listening to an eminent lecturer, Dr. Agar; butmany of us not only did nottake advantage of
thatfoppor
tunity, but by our selfishnessdeprived others of

DO
YOU|WANT
TO BEA CHEERLEADER?
"Fight! Fight! Green andWhite!"It has been suggested thatour athletic teams have alittle
more':support
and thatthe Mercyhurst cheering section be increased not only insize but in sound. As an encouragement for more school
spirit,land
more cooperationwith the team, we propose tohave two cheerleaders whoseduty it will be
tosteach
thecheers to everyone. Try-outswill be held the week afterexams. Any Mercyhurst student is eligible. Watch bulle
tin
board for further notice.
Into that life the Christmas season brought many
changes—Anne
Johnson is minus a room-mate now. Bud,we'd say, "married an angel," but
the^change
isn't sogood for us. His gain was our loss. We wish them bothall the happiness in the world.

The Sophonade was oneof the best ever. Mari-lynne's ideas for decoration were most unique. AndRosa was a

CooperHELLO!
Yep!
1170 spaces
tofgo
and nothing to fill themwith but bits of bits. Thefirst year shorthand classran across a statement inthe Gregg Writer, beginning like this: "We havenot been able to get a man."Now, how did they know?Seems like the whole country is in the same predicament.
Sabotage!!
Say, with those examscoming up, perhaps we cango to California where anewspaper published the in
formation
that
for
the pastsix years tutors have savedmany a student from failing. Yep, it said, quote:"We are ready to help youin any subject. Call us forappointment." Must besabotage! . . . Little

The day students are especially grateful for thefact that lectures
will
