Talk]
By DeanOpens College
Following Mass in honor of theHoly Ghost on September 22, Rev.Daniel J. Martin addressed thelargest student body ever to beenrolled at Mercyhurst. This marked the official opening of the newcollege year.Father Martin's advice was centered about the makings of a successful year. Students should cometo college, he explained, not onlywith the idea of getting out of itall they can, but also with theidea of giving to it. Only in thatway will they achieve the fullsatisfaction they seek.In the Little Theatre immediately following Mass, Mother M.Borgia, dean, interpreted themeaning of the college motto,
"Carpe
Diem." The students shouldseize every opportunity offeredthem at Mercyhurst. They shouldparticipate in at least one campusorganization and lend themselveswherever they are needed. UnlikeJack, their work should be balanced with some play; but,
Mother
added, "... first comes the workand then, the play."

An idea
is not
unlike
a
serve
in a
tennisgame.
The
ball
may^be
started with
all the
vigor possible,
but, if
there
is no
follow-through,
it has no aim or
purpose.Last year
in our
editorials
we
asked
for
decisive action
on
three problems:!
the
Christmas party,
the
day-hop organization,and
the
overcrowded spring schedule becauseof glee club rehearsals
and the
major production.
I
Good suggestions were made last
yearlby
the Student Council
for
solutions
to two of
these.I
Now a
solution
*must
be
found
to
lighten

is for us
this year
to
follow throughand keep

§For

or
privilege there
is a
corresponding duty.This year,
the
administration
has
granted
the
privilege
to the
seniors
of
proctoringduring
the
evening study hour.The seniors must shoulder
the
responsibility that
th
ey
'iSogwillingly
accepted. Theymust
be at
their stations
at the
appointedtime
and
must
be

in

The underclassmen,
on the
other hand,must respect
It
he obligations
of the
seniorsby cooperating with them.
; '^j
f
Because
the
juniors have
the
seniority
in
the dorm this year, they possess added
re
sponsibilities. They must
set
the
tone
of
dorm life; they must
be the
models.
If
everything goes
as it
should
in the
dorms
it can
only
be
concludedfthat
the
juniors
are
doingtheir
job.

Two excellent ways
of
making your voiceheard
are by
joining
the
staff
or by
makingsuggestions
to the
editors.

To join
the staff, one
must attend
the
journalism workshop!
to be
held once eachweek during
the
month
of
October.
The
"How
and Why Of
Newspapers" will
be the
theme
of
Ithe course. Requirements
are few:
a certain amount
of
ability,
a
sincere desireto write,
and a
definite sense ofiresponsibility.Of small
use is the
person
who
criticizesbut never offers
a
remedy
to the
problems.Any
of the
editors would
be fonly
too
gladto
hear
suggestions,
or, why not
write
a
letter
to the
editor?
Make
it

Dear Freshmen:
J
You have
a
vocation!
So do I. A
studentvocation!
A
startling
way to
begin
a
letter?Not when
you
realize howl important thisstatement
is to
both
of us.
You
and I
have
set the
development
of our
intellects
as our
goal.
We
have assumed
a
four-year vocation,
a I
student vocation,
in
order
to
reach this goal. Though
it is
transitory,
it is
equal
in
responsibility;
to the vo
cation
of
mother, teacher,
or
secretary.
r
The
story
is
told
of the
little
boy who
stopped studying
and
started praying whenhis approaching death
was
revealed
to him
in
a
vision.
His
cause
for
canonization
was
dropped
whenfthis
was
discovered.Now
is
perhaps
the one
time
in our
lives
whon
we can
really devote ourselves fullyto
the
pursuit
of
truth about
God, man, and
the world. When
we
began-ithis
pursuit,
we
begin?to live
our
student vocation.I
am
looking forward
to
working with
you
as
a
fellow
member
of our
academic community.

Make This YearYour Best Year
Start
the new
year right
is the way
the
old
adage goes. Let's
put it
into practicein
the
Sodality.
\
To have
the
best year
yet
|f
or Mary
is our
goal.What
are
some
of the
expectations
of a
true soldier
of
Mary? Let's quote Rule
33.
"Good Sodalists ought
to be
first
and
fore-| most exemplary Catholics, conforming theirfaith
and
life entirely
to the
faith
and
morals
Swhich
the
Catholic Churchateaches, praising
:
where
she
praises, disapproving what
she
disapproves
of,
having
the
same sentimentsin everything with
her, and
never beingashamed
to act in
private
and
public life
as
faithful
and
obedient children
of
this theirholy Mother. This should
be
expected
of
every Catholic.
But a
Sodalist
is to be an
exemplary Catholic, therefore more awareof
her
duties
as
af
"better" Catholic.The Sodality
Way of
Life
was a
voluntarychoice
for all of
us.f
Although
we are not
bound
tofit
by
painlof
ssin,
through
\accept
ing
itfwe
did
make
a
solemnjpromise
to our
Blessed Lady. Would
we
break
a
promise
ewe madefto
our
mortal mother?
Yet, how
Soften
are
we f
 hurting Mary
by
notfstickingitolour promisefto
her? Think
it
over.
Are
1
you
al
Sodalist,
or do
youf
just claim
to be
one?

YCS delegates, Joan Coyle,Cathy Cruise, Mary Ann Skelly,Bobbie Imboden and Jean Heavey,left that night to attend the Catholic Action^ Study Week in theCatskills. The opening question,"What is the Church?" broughtthem to the realization that theweek would be spent dealing withfundamentals. Working in smalldiscussion
groups,'the Mercy
hurstdelegation found
tthat
they hadmuch to offer the other schools
in f
he techniques of YCS andmuch to gain by hearing the remedies that other schools had foundfor campus problems.
