The Crucifixion wasnot a formality. To buy back eternal happiness for us, Christendured everything that could cause Him sorrow, that couldpain Him physically and^mentally, to the very limit of Hisendurance, at which point He died.

Sequence of the Easter Mass f
'Spirit' Unites
College
Initiated by the
organization
of a student-faculty committee and
augmentedfby
a special assembly program andvarious
club
panels, the question of student rights and re-sponsibilities has been much in the limelight at Mercyhurst.Even the least interested student has been awakened
by i
thelively discussion as to the proper status
of^
the student incollege government. There has been discussion
of
rights andduties as pertaining to both students and faculty-members;the student
body ihasfrequested
increased student participation in government; and, as a result, an emphasis has beenplaced on school spirit
%
%'•
'
School spirit in a college such as ours is a far cry
from
the rah-rah pep rallies of high school or the racoon coat and
flapper
era of our parents;'rather it is
anfintense
loyalty toour alma-mater and a desire to
seelit
become the best school
ever.
A person
;loyal to
any cause
is'one
who considers
the!
good of that cause above his own individual
good,
who will
sacrifice
his personal desires
for the
well-being
offthe
whole.
T&
it
However, no one can develop such loyalty, no one canlove his school unless he knows it. And the best way to knowMercyhurst is to attend all its
functions
and to
actively
participate, in them. In order to prove its readiness to accept additional responsibility,
<the
istudent body must demonstrateits improved school
spirit*
|' I
When your roommate mentions the basketball game orthe
culture? forum
or!
the Janus play, let your answer be,
"Yes,
I'm going, Aren't you?" When
^discussion
arises concerning the proposed election week, realize that the campaign is designed for the good of the entire school, that withsuch a plan the student body will be united in a sincere ef-fort to give the important offices to the best qualified students.

We all want student
rights—let's
prove our capabilityto accept them by

In the world of today there is
a
great stress upon getting thingsdone
In
the Quickest possible way.To aid you in reading, publishershave condensed everything as faras possible so that you can readabout all the world events in
a
half hour.This idea of condensation hascarried over
even?
into the fieldof books. You can now read
a
digested
book
in a few hours. Yetdoes this reading accomplish anything? And if a person does takethe time to read a complete book,what kind of book does he choose?It is usually a book that does nothave any real literary value. Thischoice of books can be seen bythe lists of most of the best sell
ers.
Ernest
Dimnet
has said,
"The
real purpose hidden under thegregarious act of reading is not
tojthink."
»
!There are, however, people
in
the world who still read to think,and their number is
being
%
increased by
students,who
have become interested in good readingwhile at school. Not all the goodbooks belong in the classificationof classics, although in the classicsis found the source of our modern
good|reading.
Many good booksare being written in our own time.Graham Greene is one of thebest
fiction
writers of today. Heis probably best known to usthrough the picture "The ThirdMan" which
is!taken
from one ofhis novels. Another one
of
hisbooks
is
The Heart of the Matterwhich is the story of a man'sstruggle with his own sense ofduty and honor told in a powerful manner.
Inithe
field of auto-biographythere are found two extremelypopular books. One of these| isThe Story of the Trapp Familytoy Maria Augusta Trapp. In itBaroness Trapp recounts her family's experiences in becoming acquainted with the United Statesand
in I
trying to make a livinghere. The other book is Out of
this
World by Lowell Thomas, Jr.in which Mr. Thomas
tells
of histrip
withfhis
famous father
intothe;unknown
land of Tibet.In a lighter vein is
found
I
Re
proachfully Yours by Lucille Has-
ley.
Mrs. Hasley describes in acomic fashion her adventures asa convert to the Catholic Churchand her own domestic troubles.These are a few of the betterbooks which are available to those
who-want
to take
advantage.'of
them. We here at Mercyhurst arevery fortunate for these and manyother
^interesting books
may ibefound in our own library. Let'smake use of them!
ThankYou, Dr.DeKoninck
It was a warm and genuine welcome extended to DoctorCharles DeKoninck when he ascended the lecture platformon February 26. But before then, on Sunday, he had beenbusy with informal discussionswith••the Faculty,
and
withgroups of thestudents,
;
'Born in Flanders, Dr. DeKoninck received his degree atLouvaine University in Belgium. For the last seventeenyears he has been on the Faculty of Laval University in Que
bec,
Canada. He is Dean of the School of Philosophy andTheology, and holds the Chair of Philosophy of Nature.Mariology, a course in Theology concerning the Blessed Virgin Mary,, is taught by him in Latin; the other courses heteaches in French. 1
Speaks
Four LanguagesA linguist of no small order, Dr.DeKoninck fluently speaks English, French. Latin, and his nativeDutch tongue. Then add that hereads five or six other languages,among them
Greek,
German,
andSpanish.
Us
explained that European culture demands that education include the learning of morethan just one language. His interest in the Philosophy
cf
Scienceconcerns particularly Mathematicsand Physics. The subject of hisdoctorate thesis is truly an intellectual one. as it concerns the
'"Philosophical
Implications of theTheory of Relativity."

DRAFT
Now that the world is engagedin what has been described as
a
"warm" war, many urgent problems have arisen and demand answers. One of these problems concerns the position of educationduring war time. There has beenmuch discussion about this question by many prominent men;each has his own
idea;
however,your inquiring reporter decidedthat the
\
best way
\
to
get an answer to this question would be byasking the opinion of those mostclosely concerned, students themselves. These are the answers ofa good cross section: Claire
Aglista:
"Except
in the cases ofhundreds
of
young men who arecalled from college to
serve?
on
battlefields,
education should continue as usual and,
if
possible,with greater fervor. We muststrengthen ourselves not onlyphysically
2but
mentally to meetand subdue the
onrushing
enemy/'Mary Jo Babowicz:
"During
war,education should play a very im
portant *jpart
since its job will beto teach the students of Americathe benefits of living in a democracy as compared with livingunder communism. It has (oftenbeen said that a people fight better when they know why they arefighting. It is education that hasto instill in Americans a love ofthose things for
whichjthey
are
fighting."
H II ESS
Barbara
<Haner:
"I believe thatthe importance of education is byho means decreased by war. However,
I
one thing which I thinkshould be carefully watched
is''the
drafting of
younj? men
fin college.To win
a
war a country must
hav ?
not only a good military force butalso good industrial leaders.
If
nearly all the young men in college are taken into the armedforces, this
country";will
find
it
self lacking in engineers, chemists, biologists, and
the?
like. I
think?
some provision should
jbemade
\
for these
men
to completetheir studies."Judy
Carlow:
"If ever the United States is counting on educationit is today. Whether it is realizedor not, one of the most vital factors in the strength of our nationis the education of its citizens.For the physical protection of ourcountry, laws are being passed demanding military training for allboys between the ages of eighteento
twenty-five,
included
in thisage bracket are {many boys who
"are
completing or embarking upon their higher education. If thelawmakers fail to make provisionsfor educational and culturaltraining as well as military training of our young citizens, they arerobbing our country of its strengthin the future."
"The
Tyranny of Sight" was thetopic of the morning lecture. Inthis Dr. DeKoninck showed theoveremphasis which is placed onthe visual, on the sense of sight.A very important point he stressed was that without Faith thereis no proper
knowledge J
In theafternoon he explained the philosophy behind the newly defined
Dogma!
of the
Assumption?:
ofMary.
Hei
emphasized that theChurch was never uncertain about
the'
:
authenticity
of this
belief,
butfound it necessary at this time toproclaim the absolute certainty of
it.
- ajBwMr
I
As the
father
of eleven children,Dr. DeKoninck is well qualifiedto speak on Marriage, and this
hs
did at the Family Class on Monday afternoon. Proof of the in
terest-.in
what he was saying wasshown by the
J
disregard for bellat the end of class time. Questionsand answers
continued|until
fiveo'clock when we realized that hecertainly deserved a rest, becausehe had been busy every minutesincehis arrival.
