What is to become of the Student Board ofDiscipline? The air of indifference whichhas been increasing"! each year will weaken,not only Student
Board,
but the entire systemof student government, if it is not curbed.Are we not mature enough to accept the responsibility of handling our own disciplineproblems
?
Or must this area of student participation be put back into faculty hands? Ifwe agree with the majority of college students
throughout
the country that we canhandle it successfully,
them
it is time we examined
thefjudicial
system under which weoperate.As a means of carrying out such an evaluation, questionnaires will be distributedthroughout the school with the hopes thatstudents will openly express their views concerning the Student Board of Discipline.Your cooperation will determine the futureof our all-student Board.As part of the solution, the Demerit System, an
improved
method of penalizing, willbe put into effect immediately. An accumulation of demerits will result in
stiff
penal
ties,
thus eliminating many lesser
ones,
J
andmake unnecessary a personal appearance before the board for every infraction. But theBoard can merely put it into
effect;
interested students must make it succeed.

I am a Catholic college student. I am interested in the Little Rock situation and you because I am a student, and your actions areaffecting the student world; but even more
so,
because you are a leader in our Christiancountry.I know that you, as aChristian,must haveread the New Testament. How do you thinkthat Great Leader would act in your positionif He were on
earth ftoday?
Would He be so prejudiced that He wouldnot want negroes and whites
sidejby
side inthe same school
?
It hardly seems?
so—for
Hisgreat commandment was love of neighbor;He respected the dignity of every individual.If you do not show respect
for
others, howdo you expect others to respect you? If youthink you can defy the decisions of ourSupreme Court, are you not gnawing awayat the foundations of our democracy
?
Your
"work"
can do more to make our countrycrumble than can
Khruschev
with all of hisnuclear weapons.As
ajCatholic
college student I neither admire/nor respect your leadership. You, inyour blindness and prejudice, are tearingdown in a short time what it took our forefathers years to build. Yes, you, GovernorPaubus, are wrecking our country, abandoning Christian principles, and depriving manyof my fellow students
of
the education towhich they are entitled.
\
Wake up and learn to
"love
your neighbor."

Sincerely yours,A Catholic college student

Gifts have always implied love and esteem.We take great pleasure in giving them toothers and are pleased when friends bestowthem upon]us. An
oft-described
scene is thatof a child at mother's knee, clutching sometreasure with which to surprise her. Themother daily imparts

offspring,3
and, morebasically, she
has]shared
in giving the giftof life
itself.
We can even picture ourselves
in?a
verysimilar scene, as children kneeling at theshrine of Our Mother, Mary. Her
gifts
to hersuppliant children are countless; she givesgenerously of her
storesI-of
love and mercy.In a vital sense she gave us life, too,
for
shegave birth to Him Who is the Author of
life
and she aids us throughout our existence inthe attainment of a life of Grace.In this month of October we turn withspecial attention to the rosary. This, too, isa gift from Mary, Queen of the Most HolyRosary, and we show our gratitude by dailyoffering rosaries in her honor. Downthrough
1
centuries Mary has called us to its recitation.It
is
a prayer strongly-rooted in Catholicity.It should become an integral part of ourevery day. What better gift to present toOur Mother during this month than a renewed!

is up to leaders to improve existing systems and
attitudes^to
promote higherintellectual pursuits. How can they do so?Let us first determine! how intellectuality canbe developed in a person or a group.
Knowingfthe
facts and how to use them;forming conclusions after considering the
facts;
searching
Tor more and better knowledge are requirements for development ofthe intellect to advantage. Therefore, to turnthemselves toward higher intellectual goals,leaders must follow these requirements.They must remember, of course, that to leadothers toward the same goal they must setthe example as well as encourage others intheir striving.
fBut I
who are the leaders that must leadothers to higher intellectual standards? Youand everyone around you! Hardly a day goesby when
you?
do not lead someone Jin some
wayJhowever
small it may be. For example,did you realize that, consciously or sub-consciously, every upperclassman is a leader?Underclassmen will naturally follow theirpredecessors.Remember, leaders
and*
followers,
co
operation will promote progress toward higher intellectual goals; rebellion, though often
»ier, retards!suchIimprovement.
As Mother Eustace said in her welcomeaddress to the student body, "The best satisfaction comes from proper use of intellectand will. In the training of these two thingsdo you come to the fulness of life here and
hereafter."

graduates hasnot traveled far from her almamater. Miss Betsy
Sen
natter,
oneof the most prominent women onMeroyhurst's campus last year, isagain a part of Mercyhurst, butthis time on the other side of theacademic fence.With her appointment as admission officer, Miss Schnatterhas
'•become
officially a memberof the administration. Her chiefduty is to contact and
buiki
uprelations with
prospective
students. Among her tasks are an
swering
letters of request for information and traveling to various high schools in the tri-statearea.In traveling to a particularschool, Miss Schnatter gives highschool students general information about Mercyhurst.
"Students
seem to be most
interested
in entrance requirements,
possible
courses, and general regulations,"Miss Schnatter said.During the short span
off
timesince she has taken over her newoffice in the main hall, MissSchnatter has had
several!inter
esting! experiences. One of thesewas a letter of request from aprospective student who said that
her
French teacher, Miss MarilynC

y,
had recommendedMercyhurst. Miss Chromey is alsoa member of last year's
;
graduating class.Our new admissions officerhopes to stress the personal anglein her contacts. Since Mercyhurst |emphasizes personal attention,this is rightly an important element of her position.
