INTERSESSION
1974
In an interview this week with Mr. Igor Stalsky ofthe College Senate Academic Policies Committee,the Merciad learned that only SO per cent of theevaluation forms which were
to
have
been handed outto students
on
the
final
day of Intersession were everturned
in.
W,
The evaluation forms were to have been used todetermine student opinions
'of
the
Intersession
program and proposed changes in* the academiccalendar.
^1^
When
asked for
some
reasons
why
70
per cent of thestudent evaluations might be missing, Mr. Stalskyresponded that some teachers saw the evaluationforms as evaluations of
their
own teaching ability,and felt threatened by them. In the past, theevaluation forms hadibeen done in the short,

Drive
has once again been extended, this timeindefinitely. ?
^ * M T
While declining to say that the fund-raising drivehad run into trouble, Mr. Robert
Prattler,
Vice-president In Charge of Development, stated that thedrive was running behind schedule due to a "numberof factors''.
i
Among the factors mentioned were the presentdepressed state of
the
local
and
national economy anda
three week slow
period in
pledge
solicitations due to
the
Christmas holiday.
v
Currently the
drive
has resulted in
pledges
of
$500,000 or
50 per
cent
of
the $1,000,000
goal.Mr. Pirather noted that a
big
push was now beinglaunched to bring that total to $700,000 by the end ofJanuary. When asked when the starting date wouldbe for the Campus Center, he pointed out that thedecision would be up
toUhe
Budget and FinanceCommittee of the College. After the Committeereviews all factors involved, they will suggest a datefor ground-breaking. J
?
g
^ &
Mr.
Prathert stated'that
he saw no reason whythe Committee
would :
not give the go-ahead for aconstruction start
in the
Spring
of
this
year.One of the brighter spots of the
fund-raising
drivecontinues to be
In
the Faculty Staff donations, whichnow stand at $22,000, or $2,000 over the
$20,000
goaloriginally
set.
That figure
continues
to
grow.One of the fields in which the fund-raising drive isnow getting involved in is getting corporations andfoundations
to
make "challenge grants".
An
examplewould be negotiations underway with the KresgeFoundation that would provide a $100,000 donation ifthat same amount could be gotten from othersources. Mr. Prather also mentioned negotiations fora similar "matching-challenge" grant with the Gulf
Oil
Foundation.

Some 80 Mercyhurst College students on all classlevels will pilot a Counseling Services project duringthe Winter and Spring terms. The program

known as the PACE

(PennsylvaniaAcademic Enrichment Program) and is designed torespond to students' total educational needs andprovides the following services: tutoring, study skillsdevelopment, personal counseling, financial aidcounseling,

it,

thatthose faculty members who may have gotten anegative response simply didn't turn

OPEN FILES"
LAW
RAISES QUESTIONS
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of
1974,
better known as the Buckley
Amendment,
hascaused much controversy. Some of the confusionshave been cleared up since President Ford signedmodifications
to*
the amendment on Tuesday,December 31. However, even though this bill hasbeen
signed,
it
is
still subject
to
change.
:
l
fThe Buckley Amendment guarantees parentsaccess to their sons' and daughters' records and theright
to
challenge anything that might
be
inaccurate.It also guarantees students the same rights. Anyrecords
open
to
students
would also
be
open
to
former
students
who
might
wish
to
challenge
them.Controversy in Colleges arose over the PlacementFiles.In these files are contained the Student Per
sonal
Data Forms
which
are
filled
out
by
the studentsthemselves and are nothing more
than
general information, and the Student Appraisal Rating Scales,better known as letters of recommendation, completed at the request of the student by teachers andnon-teachers. Before
the^Buckley
Amendment,
therecommendations were held confidential. If thestudents have access to them, more than likely thepeople selected to write these letters will be morecautious and less candid. Mr. Kennedy, Director ofStudent Services, has commented, "I'm not surewhat
the
files
will mean when employers
question thecandidness
ofTthe
recommendations." GaryBukowski, Mercyhurst Director of Placement, statedthat
"When
graduate schools or employers find outthat files are open,
they
don't
want
them."For this reason, students may waive their right ofaccess
to
the recommendations.
As
of January 1, theopen
 files
 are optional
to
students. However, anythingput in the files before January 1 will remain confidential. The reason for this is that these commentswere written with the guarantee that they wouldremain confidential.Mr. Kennedy will be attending a seminar at
Fairleigh
Dickinson University in Madison, N.J. onJanuary 23 to clarify specific points of the amendment
and its
ramifications for
Mercyhurst.

is powerful—at

f!by|
Fr. Guy Patrick:

penetrating words before the Christmas banquet, heaccomplished what even the Triple Trio could not:for a few brief moments he held students and facultyalike
in
something resembling awe. |
*
>Fr.
Patrick's prayer, of course, was not the
only
religious overtone to work its way into the otherwisetasteful dinner. President Shane and Mr. Blanchfield
also
addressed the group with explicitly Christianwords. However, their success at achieving attentionwas less impressive than that of Fr. Patrick. In factmany persons
mocked] the
President's attempt atreligious seriousness, while others embossed Mr.
Blanchfield's
reading of the Christmas narrativewith remarks suggestive of Tiajuana or Port Said.Clearly
immaturity
is no monopoly of the youngermembers of
the
Mercyhurst family.
f
But there is a further misfortune. Our college, itseems to me, is increasingly
embarrassed Iby
itsreligion. Like America at large, Mercyhurst is put tothe blush by the mention of its Christian underwear.We clutch at afterdinner Christmas carols as if togenitals we are unsure of. It is insufficient to sayMercyhurst is
ambivalent
about its identity; we areestranged from our origins.
M f
Oddly enough
i
institutions less committed todefinite goals than Mercyhurst are more certain oftheirdirection.
Criticizing i the American Ideal
ofexpediency, a Yale spokesman said recently,
"We've
decided to drop out of the rat race, because even ifyou run and

superstition/like
Santa Claus, which
is
cynically trotted out once ayear
to
keep the nuns and kids happy. If
so,
for God'ssake let us

'Point/Counterpoint
Part 1
What originally started out as a student evaluationof the
1974
Intersession at
Mercyhurst
has developedinto a verbal powder keg, with members of theMercyhurst community massing
on
either side of theissue and preparing to wage their respective battlesof words.
| *
Mr. Igor Stalsky, Associate Professor of Theatreand a member of the College Senate AcademicPolicies Committee, feds that intersession should bediscontinued at Mercyhurst for a number of veryimportant reasons.
%'i
'
The first major
reason, according
to
Mr.
Stalsky, ispurely economic. Intersession
is,
and has been for thepast couple years, a money-losing project. Not onlydoes the school lose money by operating with only apartial studentbody,but many students never returnto Mercyhurst after the seven week period betweenThanksgiving and the beginning of Winter term. Thefinancial loss is large—Intersession* in 1973 lost$40,000 (figures are not yet available for Intersession1974) At a
time*when
the economic future of smallschools like Mercyhurst is endangered, Mercyhurstmust "cover its losses", by either raising its tuitionor cancelling
the
Intersession Program.Another major reason why Intersession at Mercyhurst should
be
^discontinued,
according to Mr.Stalsky, is the fact that
'Intersession
isacademically worthless. Although it may workpretty well for certain departments, it is in the longrun,
a waste of
time."
Mr. Stalsky pointed out that
E
ditor
the smiling veneer of the Mercyhurst body therelurks, I suspect, a spirit which affirms neither theidea of the Christ nor the idea of a college based onsuch convictions as were His.^

Mercyhurst
Syndrofrie
by jj Dave Blanchfield
There is a definite pattern that builds up in manyMercy hurst students, but especially
in
residents. The
following is
meant
to be
a non-judgmental descriptionof
two
of
these
patterns.
* f
f *
W-
jg
For many, life becomes a dull routine interspacedwith efforts to break out of the routine. Classes areheld at the same time everyday and it
often seems
tobe more like obstacles to be overcome than aneducational experiences. Time outside of classes isspent in the same ways, drinking, card playing,television, pool, a
little?studying
here and there.Every day you come
in
contact with the same people
who
have the same things to say.
When
parties come
up,
people
rush;to
them as ways to
escapeIthe
deadening effect of daily life but all too often theparties
become as
routine
as
the week days. They tooare joyless and make the return to the daily routine
even more
painful.
, ^
Another pattern
\
is
the
| student who is | selfmotivated. These people have
no
difficulty in findingexperiences, and projects in which to involvethemselves. If
anything,!their
lives become
Hoo
frantic. Such people have an awareness of the worldaround them, both its riches and its needs. As theygrow they rejoice in its riches (music, literature,people, art,
celebrative
gatherings, nature) andbecome more aware of their responsibilities to itsneeds (problems of
hunger,
economy,
aging.) As
theygrow they become surer of who they are and moreaccepting of others.
|
% •*••
c
Of course these two patterns are caricatures, bothgeneral and superficial but those of you who haveread this far may finds yourselves tending moretowards one or the other pattern.
If
so I may havesomething
to offer
you.|
*j
The first suggestion is
open ;'
to anyone butespecially to those who find themselves in the firstpattern. Life becomes whole and meaningful only tothe extent that you give. That is a very
simple
truthbut the most difficult to live out. You become what
you give
yourself
to.
Never
give
yourself and you willnever gain a self identity.
Accordingly
a collegeshould provide
its
students with opportunities
to
give.Starting this semester campus ministry is going toset up a program so that as many of you as want tocan spend an hour a week or more with a person in anursing home. If you are interested in growing alittle, in becoming
a|bit
more compassionate andunderstanding, see us in the campus ministry office
and
break out of
the
routine.
i I
The second suggestion is open to all but especiallythose
who
fit into the second pattern.
We
are lookingfor volunteers in the college community
1
who areconcerned about the problem of world hunger. Weneed people who would be willing to go
Into
the
dorms {talk
to people and raise consciousness inothers about the food problem. It will not be easy, itmay even be painful but we will be aiming at worth
while
and concrete results.
•£.
I
student and faculty sentiments bear out this opinion.In his words, "students and faculty show theirdisapproval for Intersession with their
feet—they
walk out
on
the school during the Intersession period
and
just
go
home."Can Intersession be improved? Mr. Stalsky feels
not-—the
main limitation on Intersession being thenumber of people on the college
staff.
"There
justaren't enough people on the faculty who can offer aselection of really great three-week courses. There
are*a
tot of good teachers who just cannot gearthemselves to teaching an entire course in threeweeks time." When asked what future Intersessionswould
be
like, Mr. Stalsky responded that
they would
be much like this past one, with many shoddycourses, and a
few
great ones/
|
Mr. Stalsky
feds
that the best alternative toIntersession would be the initiation of a semesterprogram in place of Fall term and Intersession.Students would take four courses, but would takeeach course only two days a week for eighty minuteseach*day.The semester would be fourteen weekslong, and
free 4
Wednesdays would be retained. Anadded advantage would be that cross-registration
with
Gannon and Villa would be greatly simplified."If the question of Intersession were put to a votetoday in the College Senate, I feel that it would be
discontinued,
probably by, a close vote. Is Inter
session worth the
cost of a tuition
hike?
"Every Tuesdayevening,the
Merciad
staff converges on Third Floor Old Main to try to piecetogether various bits of Mercyhurst news and nonsense. At times, the newspaper production businessat Mercyhurst is exceedingly
blightedfby a
barrenwasteland

This coming September

and
its people have gone through a greatdeal since a handful of nuns and a small group ofstudents first set up a liberal arts college in the
barely
finished rooms of Old Main and Egan inSeptember of 1926.
;
In the weeks ahead, the Merciad is going to
"jump
the gun" a little on the
college's
golden anniversarycelebration bv means of a new regular feature.,
"Window On The
Past".
The feature will continue as
long as we have
interesting material to put
into
it andit
will
consist
of both
written
copy and
photos.It is our hope that
"Window On
the Past', will tellMercyhurst students and faculty a little somethingabout the people who went before them, along withphoto views of the campus in earlier days. With thisinsight,
we hope
that Mercyhurst people
will
developa "sense

history" for
the school
of
which
they are apart.

Around
The
Town
by Pat Woschler
As promised a long, longtime ago, this closing edition
of|
"Around
The Town" willdeal with those
two
final waysfor getting from Mercyhurstto somewhere else, the two
T's—Taxi
and
Thumb.
;
As
a result of a
recent'rate
increase, tatting a Yellow Cab(the only cab company inErie) costs $1.40 for the first
mile,
and $.60 for each additional mile. Thus, a roundtrip downtown will run between $4.00 ami $5.00! NelsonRockefeller, where are youwhen we need you! In short,taking a cab in this town is aluxury that few
*Mercyhurststudents
can
afford.

Which brings us to thesecond T
he
Thumb—better
known as hitch-hiking. Firstoff, the Erie Police Department's attitude toward
"thumbing
it" is thumbs
down—whether
or not theyenforce the law is unpredictable. Second, even ifthe cops ignore you, chancesare that the drivers will dothe
same.
Erie is not a hitchhiker's town—its drivers areextremely suspicious of
anyone
standing
by the
side
of
the road
looking
for a ride. Atthis time of year, a long coldwait awaits
*anyone
whoventures
forth Uo
travel bythumb.
I
Final
Note—The
City ofErie has donated a number
of
large city maps to Mercyhurst One will be posted inthe Sudent Union as a handyreference for
anyone
who
wants
to go
somwhere
in
Erie,
but doesn't know how to get
there.
The<> man
i. will
also
provide hours of enjoyment
for
"map freaks
