The College of Cardinals formally posedthe direct and weighty question,
"Aceipisne
electionem,"to Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli onMarch 2,1939. With this simple answer,
"Ac-
cipio", he assumed the responsibility of theSupreme
Pontiff,
earthly ruler of theCatholic Church*Though recognized as the Pope of Peace,Pope
Plus XIFs
reign was not one of"tranquility. Rather it was filled with the horrorsof war and the sufferings wrought by thefactions
of
nazism, fascism, and communism.Because he stood ready to advise, to comfort,to strengthen the millions who looked to himfor moral guidance, and because of his untiring work in caring for the spiritual! andmaterial needs of his flock, he has been affectionately characterized as the
"Angelic
Shepherd."
Indeed, all his years were spentin efforts for peace. His family name,Pace/' and chosen name/ "Pius," both remind us of his devotion to peace.
*
The Holy Father was deeply admiredand respected by all nations and all faiths.A United States
visit,
\
made
when he wasPapal Secretary of State, endeared the Popeto citizens of this country. On other occasions he displayed special regard for theUnited States. During the pontificate ofPius XII Mother Francis
Cabrini
was raisedto sainthood. This marked the first time thata United States citizen was
.proclaimed
asaint of the Church. f#-Pope Pius XII was a pope in moderntimes, and he led the Church to meet theforces of changing times. His achievements:were myriad, particularly in the field of law,dogma and liturgy. He brought the papacycloser to the laity, and during his pontificate
he saw
and spoke to more people than anyother pope.
H
l
Now the ibody of our beloved spiritualleader has been
laid
to rest.
His'
mortal remains rest near the tomb of St. Peter, hisearliest predecessor. Of Pius XII, Father L.Wevers,
S.J..,
once said:
"This
life belongsto God and all people, but not to EugenioPacelli." God has seen fit to call EugenioPacelli,
^Pope
Pius XII, servant of the servants of God, to
Himself.
"Requiescat
inpace."

How does a senior at Mercyhurst differ
from
owe at Vassar, if at
all
? We shall letyou judge this by telling you the outlook of
a
Vassar senior as Philip E. Jacob of Harperstated in his work, "Changing Values in College." Whether
you
are a senior, junior,sophomore, or freshman, compare these
at
titudes with your own.Jacob states,
"The
senior (at Vassar) isnot so critical as the freshman of personswho become intoxicated,
who
don't vote,who
liave
intercourse before marftoge, arelawbreakers, or don't take things seriouslyenough . . . "As a Mercyhurst student, have
your
moral judgements likewise changed
?
Or
haSae
you come to learn and understand morewhat follies these actions are?
*The
senior," adds Jacob, "more often
than
the freshman justifies the breaking ofrules on occasion, including civil disobedience; questions whether
'Communism
%
sthe most hateful thing in the world today,'or whether the American way of
lif
 e shouldbe preserved
unchanged;
would
prefer
to betray country rather than best friend." Doesour honor system and our system of studentgovernment encourage such a lax attitudetoward law? Does communism appeal to youmore, now that you are a college student?Does America
and
its way of
life
become lessdear to you as you advance at Mercyhurst ?Most important to everyone, Jacob tells us,
"The
senior goes to {church and prays lessthan the freshman, and is less likely to believe in the second coming of
Christ,
a lifehereafter and even that there is a God." Doour religion classes, our faculty, and ourtraining at Mercyhurst foster such beliefs?Unless a girl is extremely callous to allthat Mercyhurst offers. She
will
leave college with a
set j
of values and ideals* quitedifferent
from
those ofpseudo-sophisticates.

A New TwistTo Old Tale
All of the 'citizens of AnimalKingdom gathered in the townsquare, anxiously awaiting the big
event—the
boastful cow was tojump over the moon. While thecat played his fiddle, the littledog arrived with his dish andspoon, and the cow approachedthe take-off line. The cow thensoared off
;into
space and reappeared minutes later. As thecrowd cheered, the little dogmunched on his cream cheese,and the dish ran away with thespoon.An event similar to this
recent
ly took place
I
in America. Withslide rules in hand, many notedscientists gathered at Cape Canaveral, Florida, and set off a rocket to the moon, hoping to measure the intensity of radiationin the atmosphere.
v
Many hourslater the rocket landed andquickly disintegrated. Groaning,
the'hungry
scientists returned totheir slide rule calculations.

Mercyhurst students recently received astirring impression qf France.
Though
the"Little Singers of Paris" spoke little or noEnglish, the families who housed them didnot have much trouble with communication.These French boys illustrated mora pro
foundly
than any test on international friends-ship that regardless of native tongue andstrange
custom,,the
human race is oneExactly like
American
boys, they were
fascinated
by television, cars, rock and roll,and cowboys.Infectious smiles and
laughter*
markedthese Parisians, little boys, maybe a bit
I
homesick, who appreciated having a foster
family
so far from home. One very noticeable trait was their politeness and respectfor Religious and parents, one that is perhaps lacking a bit in the United States.As the students put their little visitorson the bus, one could tell by all faces thatthev were not saying "goodbye" to a foreignchild, but "Au
revoir"
to a new
brother.
During the past
few
years interest
im
GreatBooks Club has dropped considerably. Manystudents seem to be taking the attitude, "Noone reads anything but novels," and theywould certainly hate to deviate from what therest of their friends are doing.
\ %
But, in addition to novels, there are manyother books on the library shelves — theworld classics. These books, which have
lived
1
through many centuries and are still enjoyable, certainly deserve some attention. AreMercyhurst
studen/ts
to be satisfied withoutany knowledege of Aristotle, Tolstoy, Kant,and
Mark;
Train?
|
-
To a certain extent, juniors indicate interest in the lively discussions on "greatbooks." This is, perhaps, an indication thatthere are students who are desirous of knowing some of the greatest works of all time.They want to discuss these works with othersto gain greater insight into them. Thesestudents will, in the end, have a better education for their efforts.We have the minds of great men at our
fingertips
if we only take advantage of them.

from twelve-year-old

Alain Renaultthat some old French
moneys
she has been saving "for a rainy day"is worthless. He also proved helpful when she drove by starting thecar, steering, and shifting gears. The only trouble Barb had was gettingAlain out of

was engrossed in a Brother

had at least onething in common; they both could sing "Voilare!" Mary's family

Myers SpeaksOf
Linguistics
When Doctor Rowland Myers,noted linguist, spoke to Mercyhurst students on October 22, atstudent assembly about "The Romance of Words" the audiencemissed but one
thing—the
expected "Brooklyn accent." When askedwhy, as a Brooklynite, he did nothave the traditional pronunciation,he replied he trained himself tolose it. Having traveled extensively, he is
well-acquainted
withmany different dictions.Asked a more serious question,"How do you think a universallanguage will come about?", Dr.Meyers became very absorbed in
his*
answer. He stressed that onlythrough a universal love of humanity can a universal languagedevelop. Everyone must first recognize Christ's statement that "Allmen are brothers." Then, of necessity and of
itself,
a universallanguage will come. Myers addsthat, although it is far off, it doesprovide much food for thought.Unique GuestsJanet Liebler's guest, thirteen-year-old Jean Borot, was unique—he was the only one in the groupwith curly hair.Unlike the others, Patte Lazor-
chak's
guest,
twenty-four-year-old
Jean Buclet, spoke good English.
Jean 1
ravels with the group notonly to sing, but also to teachthe younger boys such subjects asEnglish, geography,
and"
mathematics.Normal and LovableFrani Reynolds was hostess totwo thirteen-year-old boys. Bernard Courret spoke a little English, but Oliver Hays' vocabularyconsisted of "cowboy," "TV," and"milk." When the television brokedown, the boys made quite an
at-
tempt to fix it.Each of the girls had differentexperiences with her Frenchguests, but they all shared thesame feeling of regret when timecame for the boys to leave. Theyagreed that the boys always bewelcome in the homes of Mercyhurst girls.
