Do We Belong? ]
What is the status of the day student here at Mercyhurst?
TTfl jfAr'c MVlilhOX
This vital question was asked recently in a survey circulated
I-rfUItUI
3
IYICWUWA
among- the non-resident students.With the increased enrollment of day students inf thecollege, it is important for each one
tojconsider
whether ornot she is taking her rightful place in the academic community. In particular she needs to realize that living off campusdoes not make her membership
ins
this academic communitydifferent from or less important than that? of her residentsisters.
I iRecent innovations—lockers
and the non-smoking lounge
—have
contributed to the physical welfare of the day studentand she is vocally appreciative of the fulfillment of theseneeds. Yet these improvements do not solve all her problems;the questionnaire revealed many other deeply felt needs.The feeling expressed by many seemed to be that of"not belonging." Such| areas as her role in student-facultyrelations; her part in student government; her role in classprojects, class meetings, and class elections; all came underscrutiny and were carefully discussed. The day student feels,rightly or wrongly, that distinctions are being made betweenherself and the resident, distinctions which do not seem quitefair in the light of what an academic community is or should
be.
j I
The day student sometimes feels that she is valued
chiefly
for her contacts in the way of publicity, promotion, and transportation. These may be small things, but they loom large onher horizon. The dayhop has much to contribute to her schooland to its role in turning out able, Christian young womenwho must face a world that is insecure and restless. She isnot protected from these outside pressures
bygwalls
of ivy.Are the residents aware of
their |
Erie sisters and theirproblems? Are the day-hops really trying to "belong?"The day student has chosen Mercyhurst for the highideals, for the fine
Christian
education, and for the moralstandards which she
teaches^and
maintains. She resides inthe city; she prays, she works, she plays there. She is proudof Mercyhurst and of the superior education
given |at
thecollege on the hill.

You Can Cut Taxes!
Fourteen months ago, on January 7, 1953, a bill was introduced on the floor of the U. S. House of Representativeswhich provided that college expenses should be income tax-deductible. Up to this time, a parent with a child in collegewas allowed only the $600 personal exemption per child, noamount over this being deductible.
f
Last month the Congressman responsible for introducingthe bill spoke in the House in behalf of his proposal. In theintervening period of over one year no action had been takenon the bill, and none was forthcoming at this time.In urging enactment of this bill, Mr. Multer (D., N. Y.),contended that we have reached a point in our educationalsystem where a college education is as essential a part of theyoung
person's
preparation for business or a career as an elementary and, subsequently, a secondary education formerlywere. The bill, he continued, is directed primarily toward financial relief for those parents who send their children awayfrom home to school. It is also planned to aid colleges anduniversities which, Mr. Multer says,
arefalready feeling |a
decline in student population attributable in part to the lapsing of the G. I. Bill.
f ! $ g K {
t
The fact that lack of action on this worthwhile proposalseems to point to apathy or ignorance on the part of millionsof college students and their parents brings to mind the question, "What can those of us who
recognize {and
understandthis problem do in behalf of others who are to follow us inAmerican colleges
and
universities?"
I
J
|
The simple and much-reiterated solution is to let ourlegislators know how we feel about these proposals. The universal way of doing this at the nominal cost of a three-centstamp is to write to your Congressman expressing your approval and your reasons as a taxpayer, college student orparent for urging prompt action in the passing of this bill.

After Lent, a more extensive program will be planned, with

Yet, what is the. attitude of the United States toward foreigners? Recently Miss

Moreno, a sophomore from Columbia, South America,was
questioned
on this

"I have found in the
United
States two wonderful things:friendship and sympathy—attributes, which I think are recognized
all over
the world. But mostof the people lack something, andthat is, knowledge of the life of
•the

newcomers?"There are many ways to getacquainted with
the-life
of otherplaces. You have correspondencewith students whom you do notknow| within your country. Whydon't you do the same thing withthe
foreign one?
You could alsoread about other lands. There are,thousands of books on this subject, as well as magazines andthan ^yours, even though, we recognize, they don't have the strongforces this country possesses."Spanish students

friendship and

"Nun in Red China" is
the
trueand terrifying account of missionary life under the communist rule.Overnight the Reds moved
in
andundid the labors of years. Monthsof constant investigation andthreats followed. Then began thenightmare time of prison life ina world drained of pity and love.Disease and despair filled theprison. The days were filled withpropaganda classes

"Nunlln
Red China" is a forcefultribute
to
those missionaries andChinese

Barrett. 122 pages, cost$2.50. The recent "cribbing"scandal among the West Pointcadets and the bribery of starbasketball players to throw important games at Madison SquareGarden are sufficient evidencethat dishonest practices are notconfined to Washington.Dr. Barrett is doubtless correctin claiming that "our nationalhabits of honor are weakeningand fading" and that "it is all-important for us to revive ourinterest in honor and devotion toit." He has done a real servicefor his readers by writing thisbook "to clarify the idea of honorand to explain its implications byfurnishing a practical code ofhonor" and by painting "the portrait of a •man of high honor.""Not As a Stranger" by MortonThompson, 948 pages,
