A CONCRETEPARADISE!?
Thursday October 25th saw the
long
awaited
opening
of Mercy-hirst's new
park J
In terms ofactivity, people and weather theopening was a grand success.What
this
reporter tried to
ascertain^
was
a deeperevaluation of what both students
and
faculty thought were on the
park
itself.
Specifically, the cost,its beauty, or
non-beauty,
andmost importantly what the
prospects
were for maximum
use. The
comments and feelings
Drought
out were interesting anddeserved to be shared with the
whole
college community. Hereare some:
£
Mr.
Bill
Darrin - Architect of thePark-
"The park
idea and concept
was developed i
during in
tercession
last year as a result
of
°ur
planning course. It is

was a good idea but
J*

 money was spent
for
it.

It's a
nice
park and I'mglad
they
did it.
I like
it!
I
Student- Well if I ever need aplace to

I

it!
Student- Looks like a rollerskating rink

for them to do this, in themeantime
last
year we [drovearound looking for
a £
parkingspace, what
took them
so long?Student- It's nice! That's whatthey
all say,
it makes
me
sick."
F§For
sure the new park (95 percent
asphalt) i
has
raised somecheers and jeers. When I askedMr. Darrin
and?
Sr. Mauraseparately how much the parkcost they both estimated between$7,500 and $8,000. A little later Iwas informed that after consultation with Dean Garvey, theprice dropped to $5,000. $1,000less than what
the
architect cameup with when he verbally listedjust
!
c
material and landscaping
costs
for
the
park.
! i |g
Whether the park was a goodidea or not is now rhetorical. It
teaches
us a
good
lessoa
We,
as apaying student body should be
.more
aware of how much andwhat our money
is
being used
for.When we suffer tuition raisesevery
year,
it
is
our
money!
If
we
knew
a little more ahead of time,we could voice an objectiveopinion and have it heard. At anyrate,the park is
here'to
stay.We'll
just
nave to wait
on Patherlime to show
us
what will
be
done
with
it?
Although the use
of

FUNDS REVIEWED *KE
by iSharonWarner
Jim McAndrew, Activities Coordinator for McAuley Hall, spokeThursday of the progress of the McAuley Dorm Fund, especiallygrowing success of the'
Hoagie
Hut".Now in its second year, the Dorm Fund
was
born from the complaint of
"what's
there to do?" It originated, said
McAndrew,
"from
theschool'g
inability financially
to
provide
activity."
%
To
build the treasury of the Dorm Fund, each McAuley residentagrees to release
$15
from his dorm deposit fee. This amount is a
slight
increase over
the $10
requested
last year, .
3
While the students do not make direct decisions on what purchases
will
be
made, the dormitory authorities, said McAndrew tryto
"determine
by consensus" what the most popular items are.McAndrew did mention, however,
that
the students were handedformal preference
lists
that
were
used
to
determine
the consensus.McAndrew reported that a great majority of students agreed to
the
release
of
their
$15
this year, with
ill
students consenting to therelease
and
36
denying
it.
. : ..^ | H
,
| g 5gjlI
McAndrew also pointed out that instead of retaining those itemspurchased from Dorm Fund finances, "we try
to
sell things
back at
the end
of each year."

The dorm fund has,
however,
itaken
on
a
{new
enterprise thisyear—the
McAuley
Hoagie
Hut.

IAlthough the Hoagie Hut did exist last year, it "was a privateenterprise" and not under
the
control of the Dorm
Fund.
McAndrewpointed out that the advantage of
connecting.the
"Hut" with theDorm Fund is that, in its success, it will continually replenish themonetary supply.

When
asked about the progress of the "Hut" so far, McAndrewreported that it was "doing good" and expected increased success
with
colder weather,

This year, the Hoagie Hut boasts a new Ham Sub in addition totheir regular subs, and hopes to eventually expand to pizzas. It is
jointly
operated by Bob

SPORTYRETURNS
Sportyfis
a "fictitious" Mercyhurst student who is past yearshas been describing the Mercyhurst of the future! This tjme,however, he
is
telling his parentswhat the present Mercyhurst islike.
Dear Mom and
Dad,No one can say it's not interesting here at Mercyhurst U.(I mean college), why just lastweek some of the "radical"students came out with an underground newspaper (I putradical in quotes
because
I hearda faculty member named "Che"say
tha"
our radicals
would
bemembers
off
the John Birch
Society-at
any other school.) Iguess
*
the I
^underground
newspaper upset
the?
administration
because
the Deandecided
to:
put out
a-counter-
underground newspaper. TheDean wrote most of it
-
except forthe jokes, which came from Bill
Kennedy
(who reminds me of awhite Flip Wilson),
fg * |
I understand the
Wimper
wrotethe paper because
he was
tired
of
being misunderstood. I know thisbecause
the
other day
he
was outwalking his dog Tiger. He was
talking
to Tiger and I happened tooverhear the conversation (actually it was a soliloquy,
Tiger
doesn't
do
anything
except knockdown Nuns and barks at stones
-
he would
>
have committed dogsuicide at Stonehenge.)* anyway,
the Dean said
this to Tiger: "Thepeople around here
^misun
derstand me. Some of them evensay I'm not religious. But this isnot true. Nobody
knows
this
but in
my
basement
I have a shrinededicated to Richard Nixon.Every night before I go to bed Ilight
a
candle in front
of the
statueand say a prayer. It's the prayerRichard had Billy Graham sendme after
F
wrote to Richardadvising him to appoint SpiroAgnew as independent Watergateprosecutor. That prayer
helps
methrough everyday. Let me reciteit
to you.

Well,

when the

came
out
itcontained the QPA's of all the
editors
of the

both lastsemester's and their estimatedQPA's tor

this semester.

(Strangely enough there was alarge discrepancy between thetwo.) The Administration paperalso had an article done by itsundercover
agent.
This last piecesuggested that
the
student
editors
were
all

I
they
hadn't

MERCYHURST
COLLEGE
LETTERS
WVAA
R
ESPONDS
Dear Editor: f
W
As members of the
W.V.A.A.
(Women's Varsity
?Athlete
Association)
pf
Mercyhurst College, we feel a need to respond to
"The
Rape of Woman (women) Athletes" printed
in
the last issue
of
the Merciad. Statements made in the article could result in
gross
misinterpretations of the Mercyhurst Athletic program. (Believe itor
not,
that does
include female athletes!)
. |
It's true: women are definitely discriminated against in athleticsand Mercyhurst is no exception.
However,
it should be understoodthat the norm
is
not necessarily the fairest judgment of an adequate
progra
m
1
sports
or otherwise.
*
Dr. Garvey's statement:
"...until
this year there was no interestamong girls here for sports" is false. Assuming he was quotedaccurately,
we
offer
the following as evidence:
*
;li|
i
J
1.
Gary
Bukowski's
series of essays, written in the
31972-73 "
Merciad on the history of Mercyhurst. gave actual scores ofathletic events in which students from this institution competed.There
must have been an interest prior
to 1969. |
|ti
2.
In the Spring of
1971,
two female
students
from Mercyhurst
College
approached the Dean (Dr. Garvey)
to
ask for a budget
for
awomen's
intercollegiate ^volleyball
team. At this point we hadalready competed
for
two
years against local schools using a smallintramural
budget.
We
did not have uniforms. The only male sports
$#
to
this date
were tennis and crew
 find
hey did not
ignite
the interest
in a women's intercollegiate team. This to dispel the feeling thatinterest in athletic competition for women developed after
the
initiation of a men's
program.*(By
the;way,
the request wasgranted).
p
»&
\
is
|
3.
Contrast the fact that the women went before the Dean to askpermission to begin a team, while the men were approached andrecruited for the school to build one. The interest level from thispoint speaks loudly and clearly
for
itself.
Last year it took the institution
until
December to obtain a coachfor the girls intercollegiate basketball team. Then, members of theschool community had enough gall to ask why we didn't have awinning seasoa Be aware too, that the college uses what is"available" for facilities and coaches for the girls.
(Mercyhurst's
gym was used until last year; it
is
still used for practice. No wonderwe never had a crowd. Where would anyone sit?) One physicaleducation teacher coaches all three women's intercollegiate sportsand also runs the intramural program. In addition, only one sport,'tennis, has an assistant coach. This requires quite an effort on the
$
part of Ms. Price. But of course, the college could not recruit acoach from outside the
institution,
an expert in the field, for thewomen athletes.
1 H ?
r
We
feel safe in saying that most members of the W.V.A.A. wouldnot feel comfortable receiving scholarships. We compete becausewe develop socially, mentally and physically, and not because wereceive free
tuition,
free board, apartment rental fees, free tennisshoes and rackets, private tutors and an
automatic
2.0 in
our liberalstudies courses.
We
do not believe that sports should be our "firstpriority-." Neither do we believe that it should be the
priority
of
men.
An academic institution exists to develop the
mind
first.Although athletic competition can contribute, it is by no
means
themost desirable
and
most effective
way.
-|£$
J
|||** |Two important
points^r
1
*?f ? ^*
1.
We
were unaware that the purpose of a sports program was todevelop skills so that students could compete professionally aftergraduation. (Is it true that the Boston Celtics are scouting Mer-
cyhurst's
basketball players?) 5|| I
\
gfik
2.
The important thing to note is not that girls
sriorts
are more
"socially
oriented" but to ask why this is the case. We feel it continues because of efforts similar to sports havens like Mercyhurstto give the women what
they
need to get by
and
support the men
both financially and
spiritually,
'wm
1 * *"
W
J
A
final correction: Dean Garvey may be the
"Pioneer"
of men'ssports
on
campus, but
he
did not initiate athletic activity.
We
feel aneed to ask: Why is the sports program consistent
with:the>
philosophy of the Academic Dean? It seems
to us
that there should
f
be much more input from women and both male and femalestudents in the development of the philosophy of a coeducationalinstitution's athletic program.

With basketball season approaching us, your SpiritualGuardians have discovered that
M.U.'s
basketball team is lacking
something—besides
fans,
ft'
We have players; we've gotballs;
we've
even got uniforms.We have a place to play (eventhough it isn't our
own).
But whatwe don't have is
a^Fight
Song.
After
all, Notre Dame has a
fight
song;
Perm
State has a fight song.Southern Cal., 'Michigan State,and Pitt
allf have
fight songs.What makes these schools so
different from Mercyhurs
t?
|||
To remedy this nasty
situation,
we,
as your Spiritual Guardians,have decided to bless our mightyLakers with their very own fightsong. This song will be sung fromthe Orchard of M.U. and perhapsthroughout the
world,
r
On the dawn
of
fthe first M.U.basketball game we expecteveryone to rise up from theirbeds and assemble in GarveyPark and sing at the top of theirvoices their fight song. The songwill be led by Coach Fox. Thiswill
precede
a bonfire
in the
Union(The wood
for
the fire will beunselfishly furnished by Mr.
Herring:?
ping-pong and pooltables, paddles and cue sticks).Have no fear; the fire departmentwill be
on
hand
to
keep
everything
under control. fc.Following the bonfire the LakerBowl Parade
willjbegin
on StateStreet. Start working on yourfloats now. There will be heavy

M.U.
Bulleiitt—Attorney
PhilShrewd, a representative of
Mercyhurst
College, filed a
requestJtoday
to
jhave
theproposed interchange on
W.
38th

constructed on thecollege campus. "I asked that thedesign
be

altered for a moreeasterly orientation," Mr.
Shrewd
told reporters outside theDepartment of Transportation inHarrisburg.

ISince jl
the
|
announcementyesterday^
of
|
Mercyhurst'sreauest
for* the highway, thecampus has been abuzz with
plans
and
rumors.
No one
seemedto have an accurate account ofthe project.
As
my first step then,I
visited
President Marane to ask
about
the specifics of the plan andhow
it all came
about."Well, T. M.," he began, "thehighway
would
go underground at
some,
yet undetermined, point onWest 38th.
| At?
the
J
northwestcorner of the campus, the highway would come aboveground,
run
back
of McAuley down to thegrotto where it would again gounderground until
§it|
reached I-
79."
I asked what would be theadvantage
*of sthis
*.
plaa
j"The
income for
us
from such a project
would
be
phenomenal. Of course,we would put it all
to
good
use.
Asa matter of fact, there is an informal meeting going on now inthe faculty lounge as to how themoney should be
spent4
Youmight want
to stop down
there.''I assured him that I did andasked a final
question—Why
didMercyhurst think it had a chance
to
havMhis
request filled? "Oh,
we^
have a few connections,"Marane answered with a wink,

As
I was leaving the office.Dean
Marveyf
popped in, so Iasked for a comment. "Now we'llfinally have something Gannon
doesn't,"
he bubbled. "This highway will put Mercyhurst on the
map."

f
\
;On
my way down to the facultylounge, I came upon the directorof development, Frank Frather,and Tim
Money man
of thebusiness department. They wereengaged in animated discussion."Gentlemen," I
^interrupted,
"could you explain where all themoney would be coming in fromthe highway proiec
t ?
"
\
Frather outlined the plan,
"We'll
build a rest
stop,
complete
with?
restaurant,"
snack bar,souvenirs, and bathrooms. That'll
make
a fortune
j
in
itself.
We'lladvertise
our
Sunday andTuesday films and charge, admission to travellers who want tostop and relax at a movie. Then,in good weather, we'll operate apicnic area, charging rent for
tables.
And that's just thebeginning. You rememberMercyhurst's motto, carpediem."Moneyman seized
\
the op
portunity
to tell me that the reststop and other enterprises wouldprovide several positions forbusiness internships, "especiallyfor those students who don't havea car to
drive^
to off-campus
jobs,"
he added. Ms.
Shir
ag ofthe home ec demparment, on herway to a restaurant for lunch,couldn't help overhearing the lastremark. She told me that several
e*
students have already asked
for
acourse in short-order cooking.

When I arrived at the facultylounge. Ralph Hob of thepsychology department had justfinished making a plea for moreequipment for his "lab." Next,
Mrs.
Operjan of the library put ina word for more reference works.,Then the well-know
jock^
Rich
Cockl
took
the
floor.""We don'tneed any more rats," he began"we already have enough of themon this campus. And it seems to
me,"
he said, turning to Mrs.
0 peri
an, "that every
time
I go tothe library, there are alwaysplenty of books there. Now, whatthe money could really be usedfor (rising, he started to unroll apaper) is this!" He pointed to adiagram of a "new, all-purpose,
