'Strange Things HappeningAs Curtain Time Approaches
ByM.;?A. Hayes"Strange things are happening" here at Mercyhurst since theadvent of "Brigadoon."
Institutions
as old as Mercyhurst herself havebeen laid aside for the, time being. Mercyhurst girls pave risen to thecall and have given generously of their time and ingenuity. Professors,busy themselves, have exercised unprecedented liberality with late assignments and tardy students.

Saturday morning residence halls, usually silent as a church until10:30
a.jm.,
are bustling with activity by nine o'clock. Pat
Royer
andher prop committee, up bright and early, can be seen downtown scavenger hunting with a purpose for everything from bar stools to bagpipes.Carol Kelly, a freshman member of the searching party, combined busi-ness with pleasure when she discovered the perfect solution to the barstool problem on a Tuesday afternoon visit to Yaple's.

The
costume committee, whichenjoyed a! period
off
blissful inactivity, has more than compensated by their intensive work sincethe costumes arrived last Saturday from New York. Publicity required advanced showings of costumes not scheduled to arrive forseveral weeks. Nothing was sacredto committee head, Jean Brosco'e,as she busily improvised tartansfrom
air
available plaids rangingfrom wool
stoles
to plaid chintzdrapes.Day-hops, too, have
givenftheir
all in support of "Brigadoon." Afternoons after class found PatUlrich and Donna Albrycht traveling downtown and around thecity personally distributing agrand total of fifty posters. Kathleen Mainzer, Rosemary McCabe,and Janet Bremmer turned super-saleswomen to secure severaldowntown show windows for au-thenlc Scotch displays! But sellingthe idea was only half their job;they went on to decorate the windows, dressing mannequins, anddraping plaids.Dot

building. Not very long ago it was a blueprint,and before that, only an idea. Now the

Hung In Library
Looking at the finished product, one doesn't realize allthe time and effort that had to go into the making of it. Butwatching the gradual progress through the various stages ofconstruction has given us a slight appreciation of the workinvolved, and the thought that preceded it. While we claim aproper pridefulness, we do not want to forget a sincere expression of our gratitude. The students of today and tomorrowthank those of yesterday, and all those who made
thisibuild-
ing possible.Simplicity is the keynote of
beautyfand
this is displayedin every detail of the newibuilding. The graceful circular staircase is beautiful and pleasing to the eye, as is Del
Sarto's
painting of the "Assumption" which occupies a prominentplace in the library. Comfortable
'modern
furnishings, withconvenient stacks and periodical rooms, creates an intellectualatmosphere that is most conducive tostudy;or it will be, oncewe've adjusted to the new surroundings.

"^he
Assumption,painted byDel Sarto of Florence, Italy, in
1526,
has now been hung
at |the
north end of the new library. It isnot the
original
but an excellentcopy by Virginia Sano. The original hangs fin the Pitti Galleryin Florence. The "Assumption" depicts Our Lady sitting on billowyclouds supported by angels. Below
hei,
fourteen
figures,
groupedaround a sepulchre,
wonderingly
watch her ascent into heaven. Thisgroup includes the twelve apostles,a kneeling woman saint, and DelSarto
himself,
kneeling at the leftwith a rosary in his hand. Del
Sartofpainted
most of his Madonnas from the face of his nagging,misunderstanding, but beautiful
wife,
Lucrezia.Del Sarto's painting first ap
peared?
at Mercyhurst
asI
a giftfrom Bishop Gannon in 1932. Asan altarpiece it hung over the highaltar in our chapel until 1937
when
the chapel was redecorated. Fromthe chapel it went to the artstudio,
a-nd,
until last week, hungon the
walli
of the stack room
stairs.
Now, after
fifteen
years,the painting, meant by Del Sartoto inspire, beautifully copied by
Sano,
hangs in our library for -theappreciation

In order that a change can be made in any social system orinstitution there must first be a definite meed. This necessitywas realized two years ago when Mercyhurst initiated a new
systermof
student government. Privileges were given and responsibilities assumed. Late lights became a reality, the stu-
/l/fpn
f\f
ilffc
dent board was reorganized, and
the'monitor
system was put
"d » Uf
rll
I
o
into effect.
** fI
Two years have passed since this change|The novelty hasworn thin and Mercyhurst is faced with a durability test. Thatthe
systemfis
thorough and the privileges necessary have already been proven. However, whether students are matureenough for the responsibility and for additional|responsibilitvis still in question. When lights are seen burning after twelve,when monitors fail|to report offenses, when student boardpenalties are not carried
out—these
laxities indicate thatsomething is lacking. As stated before, the system has provenits worth,. Now, can
we,fthe
students, prove ours?
»
It is coming close to the end of one school year
andfthe
beginning of another. The door of
thefyear '53
must be shutwith firm finality if
'54*it
to be a year of cooperation and
mutualfprofit.
Lethargy and indifference are the two evils wemust combat. It is not too late. Our final grade in student government and student discipline can still be an A plus.
Prisoner Exchange LeadsThis
Week's
Headline News
Of course the big news thesedays has been the prisoner exchange in Korea, and the "aura"of peace. Atrocity stories brought
b&ck
by our prisoners darken thehappiness of the hour and bid usbe cautious in our hopes.

Another reason for distrustingCommunist motives is the recentRed offensive inIndo-China.Ob-servors say that in this battle,the fate of all south-eastern Asialies in the balance."germ warfare" on the part ofthe United States in Korea, isrolling ahead, despite Russia'smurmured suggestion to forgetthe whole thing.Good news in
the
i
financial department. The $1.2 billion budgetproposed by Truman to operategovernment commissions has beencut 61% by the new administration. One reason: the governmentwas paying itself interest.In the campaigns for nomination to the presidency last year,many candidates were billed assimple, homespun men after thetradition of Abraham Lincoln.President Eisenhower might welllay claim to that title after showing his aversion to highly spicedfood while on vacation in Georgia.The country rang with worriedreports of his mild case of foodpoisoning. Exotic food is not for

The interior of the new libraryhas been attracting many admiring visitors lately.

bust which occupies thefirst disk is that of Dante, who iswithout a peer in the field ofpoetry, acknowledged as suchparticularly by virtue of his "Divine Comedy."Next in the series is the bustof Amadeus Wolfgang Mozart, perhaps the greatest composer in theworld of music.The fourth is that of the incomparable Italian painter and sculptor, Michelangelo.

Much stress has been placed onthe welfare of the resident studenthere at Mercyhurst; little concern has been given to the welfare of the day student. However,when the question of selling tickets or publicizing an event arises,the day-hops are immediately approached to make the contactsAre the scales of justice: balancedwhen

S.conducted a research problem onthe conditions
»to
which non-resident students object. The response was overwhelming, indicating that these were not new problems of a minority, but were longstanding objections of all day stu
dents.
Y.C.Si became the sounding board, and this- group was soimpressed that they presentedtheir findings to Student Council,which sent them on to the Administration through the Student-Faculty Board.The recommendation sent to theCouncil in behalf of the day students requested consideration ofthree things: a non-smokers'lounge, better locker conditions,
andfa
general health room. Thesecuring of these facilities shouldbe of interest to residents as wellas to day students.

A more satisfactory locker arrangement would
feliminate
congestion in the halls, and wouldmake

lounge for

residents and day students wouldsolve the
touchy?
question of invaded and invading privacy inresidents' rooms, and serve toprovide freedom and companionship without fear of infringing onthe rights of others. At
present,
there is no place for girls who donot smoke to relax with others.The proposal for a health roomwhere students might rest whennot feeling well has already found
a|
sympathetic voice in
Sisiter
Denise who has requested such anaccomodation. This problem againinvolves day and resident studentrelations. Often, a day-hop, ratherthan wanting to impose upon aresident, will go home because ofthe lack of the •facilities whichshould provide a place to rest between classes for a student who isfeeling ill but prefers to attendclasses.Theday;students have giventheir opinions and have been recognized on this question. The administration has plans under wayfor bettering these
conditions.and
