Anderson Crowd Pleaser
NO PRAISE FOR WATERGATE
ANDERSON
|AS
the
final
lecturer
in
the
1973-
74
Tri-College
Series, JackAnderson spoke last Tuesday to
anf
estimated crowd of
1,000.
Chairman of the Mercy hurstCultural Committee, Dario
Cipriani,/while pleased j
with theoverall attendance of the crowd,was disappointed in the ratio ofMercyhurst students to membersof
the J
Erie community. Heestimated that about 15 per centof
I
the crowd were Mercyhurststudents. i
"People
are better off with nogovernment at all than a suppressing J government."? JackAnderson borrowed thesethoughts of Thomas Jefferson tomake
his
i
point on March 26th.Anderson spoke to an Erie crowdas the final speakers of the Tri-College
Cultural
Series.
fg"In
this country, the presidentis a father figure, like royalty",continued Anderson,
"but
wemust make
thef
president' accountable
to the
people". I
Speakingjchiefly
of Watergateand of impeachment, Andersondiagnosed that
"the
body, politicshas cancer. There is no way wecan praise Watergate, no way we
can make Nixon look
good. "|1 Anderson referred
|j
hisaudience, which would have tohave been described as captive,
to the
nature of the constitution as
applied
 
to the present. "Theconstitution", said Anderson,"was written
not
to protect Nixonfrom us
J
but to protect us fromNixon".
Speaking
most harshly of
Nixon
on his criticism of
the
press,Anderson said that "controversyis a vital element in democracy.It is the function of the press togive us an alternative to the official versioa" 4 |&a|
>g*K
Anderson expressed suprise at
the
fact that Nixon would criticize
the *
press."'80 per cent of thepress has supported Nixon in twoelections,'
jj
Anderson
said,
M
The only choice the press has,Anderson
continued,
is
to
give thepeople critical stories or to shut
up.
The news,
he|said,
doesn't"belong
to
the government, or thepress,
but
the
people."
£The
1972
Pulitzer
Prize winnerobserved that the findings of hisprivate
polls,!conducted
by thefamous Jimmy the
Greekf
indicated that most Americans areagainst
impeachment. But|

EUROPE! JOBS
BY
SOS
Students interested in going toEurope this
spring
land summer
can
earn back most or all of theirtrip cost by taking a summer jobin Europe. Paying jobs areavailable in resorts, hotels,restaurants and snack bars inSwitzerland, Austria, France,Germany and
Englandf
A
fewweeks
on the
job
earn
back the airfare, a few more
weeks
work earnample money for travelingaround Europe
-^especially
S
travel
is by
bicycle.
I
Standard wages are paid, butthe
big
saver is the free room andboard provided with each
job
andarranged
in
advance by theStudent Overseas Services. SOSfills the jobs
on
a non-profit, firstcome, first served basis as it has
done for the past
16
years.

Students are also taking to theroads on bicycles in Europe as ameans of beating both the energyand money crisis. Under a newarrangement students can bicyclearound Europe with
a!
newEuropean bike
that|they
can puton the plane and take home with
them}
SOS has arranged biketours
If
or groups, or
individual
bikers who want only a new bike,a
map,
and
a
'Survival
Kit'.|
"But
no matter what the
reason
for
goingfto Europe
a- exploring,studying, working -," advisedJohn Carodine,!
SOS
PlacementOfficer, at a recent University ofMiami meeting,
"Students should
immediately
sign
up for theirschool charter flight in order tosidestep
increasing
-air
\
fares/'Students can also
sign,up
with aneighboring^
school
charter, orany local civic group, museum ortown group sponsoring a charter
flight!
to
? Eur
ope.
|
This is thecheapest way to fly to Europe,"emphasized
Carodine,f "and
students should take advantage
of
it."
SOS
does
notjjoperate
charterflights. Students should look intoall local charter
^possibilities
because,
once
in
Europe,
it
will
beeasier to earn back the trip costby taking a paying job - a uniqueexperience
in
itself.
Interested students may obtainapplication forms, job listingsand

On.the
morning I was to interview Dan Dingear, I met him
on
the
stairs
going
up
to his office.He greeted me and said,
"You'll
probably be bored today. Nothingexciting ever happens in our nook
of
the LRC." |

When we arrived at his office,Dan noticed that his curtainswere off
the
hooks
and lay heaped
in
a corner.
Once
inside the room,we could
I
hear
snoring.!
It wascoming
from
the
heap."Now that's strange" Danphilosophized. He took a rulerfrom his desk and poked at thecurtains. A
facegappeared,
theeyes blinking into a realization ofthe predicament.

NEWS BULLETIN: Mr. and

before
it recruited enough men tofill first floor Baldwin, there wasa dormitory called Preston Hall.It was
often
referred to by
many,
other
jthan
the occupants, asPreston Junior High. Within thishallowed building existed afaction of students, or a facsimile
thereof,
who gregariously dubbedthemselves the!
Radica 1
Wing''.Ever since E.W. Kennedy uttered those famous words,

'You'll
be home before the lettergets there!" at the first PrestonHall meeting, the

had a number ofresources which they tapped inorder to fulfill

TRANSIT CRISIS
Mercyhurst student,
.Michael
Harrington,
has initiated whatmight be considered a one-mancampaign against
\
Erie masstransit operations.
'$»$
Harrington's complaints arebased on the fact that Erie hasoriented its transportation planson highway improvement, ratherthan mass forms, like railways,subways and buses. This isespecially undesirable, thinks
Harrington,
in view of the energycrisis and limited
fuel
supplies.Harrington
feels
that Erieespecially could
benefit?
fromimproved rail systems,especially North-South linesbecause of
the/large
supply ofcoal
in;the
state. Here, trucktransportation
u
proves quiteinadequate.
8
&
|Responding to recent newsthat
Amtrak
passenger service
may be
brought to Erie,Harrington
felt
that
' if
it comesback, we should
do
it right". |Harrington's f mass transitproposals also include improvedinternal bus service
for
Erie.Newroutes as well as increasedservice on existing
Jroutes
isneeded, Harrington
\
feels,especially in the East-West lines."Many people have labeled theenergy crisis a political landeconomic crisis rather
than
aneconomic one. It is neither. It is atechnological crisis,
^caused
byinefficient use and inapplicationof proven technological creations,all certainly as feasible as fourlevel thruway interchanges. TheAmerican
<
people areemasculating
I
their oncesophisticated technology, but therest of the world and timemarches on. Consider the
question."
