"All things have their season,

of joy and
regret,the seniors take leave
of
their Alma Mater.We have
had our
"season"
and are
readyto depart through
the
great iron gates whichwelcomed
us
four years

But
we do not

Mercyhurst
has

thus strengthening

Humbly, sincerely,

we

to

its

Cut an organization in
two
and yet doubleits efficiency. Sound paradoxical?
Yet, it is
quite possible with Student Council's revised membership.The council recently adopted
the
club
co
ordinator amendment which reduces
its
top-heaviness
to
slim efficiency. This
is not a
sudden decision. Since last November discussions
and
investigations
of
councils
in
othercolleges
had led to the
realization that Mercyhurst needed
a
more compact governing body.The result is that
the
NFCCS senior delegate will work
in
alliance with clubs, presenting their voice
in
council matters
and
keeping them informed
of its
work.Though this
new
plan will
not be
testedthis year,
its
future
looks good. Present council members
are to be
congratulated
for
making this efficient step.

Lost Visas Rouse Vengeances

Walkeven
Fog ascends from Ellis Island revealing the martial forms of twoguards. A brisk wind clips across from the bay, for it is in the middleof March in the year
2056.
One of the martial forms starts as he sees
a &
transparent trench-coated figure walking across the water towardshim. The trench coat is accessoried with a French beret
and!
a dis-sheveled suitcase. The ghost mutters a few {languid words about themonotony of water walking
andjthen
disappears in the gloom. Soonafterwards another transparent trench coat, equipped
{with
an Alpinehat and a yodel, breezes past him, followed by four others. Two arewearing shamrocks
whiles
the other two are twirling
spaghetti g
on gigantic spoons. The last of these strange ghosts looks at the guard withvengeance in her
eyes.
The guards suddenly realize thesignificance of this curious event.He realizes that for many yearsthese ghosts have been walkingacross the globe in search of
pass
ports lost at sea. Never shall theyfind peace until they can end thisbusiness of being six college students without a country. In theirlong travels they have become like
Hamlet's
father's ghost. They areseeking revenge upon the customsofficial who deported them to theseven seas.Search In VainThis tragic flaw of inaction hasslightly
demented'
their peaces ofminds. If only they realized thefruitlessness of their search, fornow they would
>be
completely outof place
in
American society. Noone wears trench coats any more.
Junior DanceHeldSaturday
"Moonglow" was the populartheme of this year's Junior Prom.In the setting of the b.allroomof {the Lawrence Hotel, NeilCharles and his orchestra pro-vided the musical background asthe students of
Mercyhurstf
andtheir escorts waltzed away thislast social function! of the year.Under the general chairmanship of junior class presidentJulia Kelly, members of thejunior class officiated as
chair*
men of the dance committees.Jo Huggler was in charge ofpurchasing the traditional favorspresented to the members of the
senior
\
class, who were guests ofhonor at the /dance. Programswere handled by Marge Karaffaand her committee, publicity byDorothea Morell and tickets, Joan
Coyle. IA Paradox
But
ver
rue
Take
a
girl who is proud ofher individuality, yet can be heardproclaiming that "Our class is allalike." Listen to her complainthat "the food just isn't likehome," but watch her diet because,"I've eaten too much this semester." This same girl can't tolerate Gannon
men,.yet
is at everyFriday night dance. She is perpetually tired but her permissionsare never late enough. There justisn't enough time for her to catchup on her assignments, and yetshe can never find anything to
do.
This same girl has complainedfor three years about May Dayrehearsals and then, in her senioryear, says, "We
only|have
threeweeks left to practice." Her maingripe
Is
that "There's too muchreligion around here," but she isthe
first
to insist that the seniorshave
9
both a day of recollectionand an all night vigil.
She
can'twait to get out, yet has tears inher eyes on Lantern Night. Hermain accomplishment has beenlosing her idiosyncrasies; no onehas the heart to tell her that shehas added new ones. She'll neversend her daughter to a girls'school, but she'll be back the nextyear to register her sister. Fouryears with girls has been toomuch for her, yet she is overjoyedwhen she meets a former schoolmate. Once she graduates, she'snever coming back; just for therecord she checks the date ofAlumnae Weekend.A paradox, she is deeply, loyal
to Iher
college, her schoolmates,and her classmates. She has earned a degree, but more than thatshe has learned to live and loveand
laugh
with
others. She graduates "wealthy in her friends."This is what it means to be a
Mercyhurst
girl.
