Tonight the juniors and seniors, clad in academic cap and

carry out a tradition
cherished
by all upperclassmen. Lighted candles in hand, the students will
process
throughthe halls, around
the
campus and finally to the chapel, whileheralding joyfully the coming of Christ.In doing this, they are not only acting
infa
Mercyhursttradition but in an age-old and world-wide one.
#
Carols,
first!
sung, and often danced, for every seasonand occasion! through
out fthe
year, are of pagan origin. Contrary to popular belief
they
are not hymns but were composedto take the place of hymns
if
or a lighter mood.It is in the thirteenth century that we find the beginningof the true Christmas carol and Italy is its birthplace. St.Francis of Assisi, in trying to humanize the gospel of Christmas, built the
first
crib. His
friars
composed simple
folk
songs,the first Christmas carols, to sing before this crib.So tonight when
your
hear the songs "It Came Upon AMidnight
Clear"
and
"0
Little Town of Bethlehem" think ofthat night of nights just nineteen-hundred and fifty-fouryears ago.

only through prayer."If enough of the peoples of the earth askGod, their Father, for peace, He will grantit unto them."

A tradition, dear to all hearts, has had
tofbe
broken. In
a|discussion,
after carefulconsideration, it was decided that
theiconsout-weighed
the pros, and for the betterment of all concerned the Freshman Christmas Party has been dropped
fori
this year.
p
The students realize that prudent and
intelligent^thought
lay behind this decision,
butPthey
also realize that if there is a problem there must
also
i be a remedy for it.The Student Council
should!
form a Committee to see if the solution actually lies inthe dropping of the party or if perhaps itlies in the reorganization of it.Since this Freshman Party is one of thebest loved Christmas functions, the studentssincerely hope that the traditien will not belost forever. If the
event |is
to take placeonce again next year, it is for the StudentCouncil to weigh the problem
andfsolve
itnow. Action now will eliminate later
regrets!

Ned, the Note.My assignment was
to*find

injthe

Sneakily,
I changed the stationand startled them with a blast of"Santa

the you-know-what.
Billy was drowned out when thedoor burst open, ' and anothergroup stampeded in, singing whatI thought were seventeen
different
songs. However, I soon discoveredthat they were all singing thepopular "Silver Bells," in seven-teen-part harmony, of course.It was too much for me when Iheard the radio giving forth withthe Nativity story, played andsung calypso style. I crept unhappily from the lounge, and wasnearly trampled by a bevy ofbeauties singing, "Bradley HighSchool" (how did that get inhere?). This changed to a medleyof ever-beautiful Christmas
carols
as they passed the refectory door.Having trudged up three flightsof stairs, I was exhausted. (Icouldn't elevate because BobbieImboden was coming up from dinner singing the
19

Harmony is a much sought after keynote! Andwhat could be more harmonious than living in accordance with the Mystical Body of Christ. Suchare the objectives of
the
Liturgical and MarianCommittees of the Sodality, which is itself an organism of the Mystical! Body.Inspiring a love for and an active participationin the liturgy of the Church is the
aim?;of
theLiturgical Committee. Described as the prayer ofthe people of God, the liturgy
jis
actually theMystical Body on its knees. Under the leadershipof Pat Powers, this
committee vhas
been discussingways and means of best instilling the minds andhearts of students with the true spirit of liturgicalprayer. "
c
Special projects this year include the promotionof Compline; an
explanation|onIthe
use of the
missal|to
freshman sodalists; the Advent wreath;and Advent suggestions to remind us that Adventought to be a time of self-denial in preparationfor His coming.| Donna Nashwinter and Barbara Stone head theMarian Committee which has as it objective thefostering of a true devotion to Mary. Their discussions have centered on ways in which to makestudents aware of the need for Mary in the immediate sphere of their lives.From these discussions such projects as thedaily recitation of the rosary in the Chapel andin residence halls, and the special novena to theBlessed Virgin preceding the feast of
[her
Immaculate Conception have found their source. Also fostered by this committee was the program on December 8 which honors her freedom from the taintof original sin.
Cabs OnCampus:Signl Of

"Gee kids. I wanna go, gosh kids I gotta go,gee kids I wanna go out!" New words but the sameold
"tune"—the
Sunday afternoon
theme;song!
As our "nose
'for
news" inquiring reporter foundher way up the boulevard of cabs one Sunday
after
noon, she managed to stop a few of the leaving
'Hursters
long enough to find out where they weregoing and why.Beth Coleman, on her
wayfto
the movies withPat Fridley and
Max*y
McCarthy (from the Buffalocrew), said that the reason she was going out wasbecause there] wasn't
anything!
to do at school."One hardly feels like lounging around in her Sunday best," declared Beth, "and when everyone elsegoes out, it's gloomy around school." Mac and Patboth agreed and further added
that §
they neverstayed in on
Sunday?
afternoon unless they hadsome
particular
assignment to do.From the boulevard, our reporter wandereddown to the lounge where she found the
Ashta-
bulean, Mary McCarthy. When asked about Sundays at Mercyhurst, Mary replied, "I don't mindstaying in but I think it would be more fun ifthere were something going on right here on campus, such as Dr. Haas' suggestion for a music appreciation class."Strolling through the dorms,
Ina
Smith, Bar-bara Barnes, and Mary Burns seemed to be enjoying themselves fully because they could caU thetime their own and were not obligated to do anycertain thing.So our reporter left with two facts in mind:some were happy on this "free day" while othersleft because of a lack of means of
