Senate Creates Newt Grade
by Leigh Krcmer
We've
moved into our new quarters, and here they are!The
new
Merciad office
is
on
2nd
floor, Old Main, just off theCareer
Planning Center—but where's
the
staff?
At the end of Spring term, some
Mercyhurststudents may
be
surprised to
see
an unfamiliar lettergrade on their report cards—IEC; This new grade
was
created
and
approved at
the
March
12th
meeting
of the
Mercyhurst
College
Senate.Students receiving an IEC grade on their reportcard are required to participate in the MercyhurstEnglish
Clime
to replace
[the
IEC grade (Incom
plete—English
Clinic) with the grade that theyearned in the
course
in
which they
received an
IEC.
The Mercyhurst English Clime, founded this yearunder the direction or Mr. Andrew Roth
is
atremendous asset to Mercyhurst students. Basicpurpose of the clinic
is
to help students work outdifficulties in their writing style, thus becomingbetter all-around students. The services is provided
f ree-of-charge
by
the college.
|Mr.1 Roth
believes that
if
any student has a goodcommand
of the
English language and.has developeda concise understanding of
grammar^and
sentencestructure, he
will
be able
to
raise
the grade
he
gets in
any
course
one
point
on
the basis of mechanical skillsThe English Clinic, therefore, has the potential ofbeing a workshop for
developing
writing, skills androoting out poor writing habits. Some
ofgthe
mechanisms
1
used in the^English* "workshop" include: a diagnostic test to pinpoint weaknesses,
tutors
available
to
work with
students on a one-to-onebasis, and a wealth of
^information
on subjectsranging from
spelling
and grammar
to
the important
task of writing a term
paper,
i
k|
Any bad feelings that might surround the practiceof receiving an IEC from an instructor are totallyunfounded. When a teacher gives a student an
"Incomplete—English
Clinic",
it
is basically for the
student's
own benefit Although the student may havea clear understanding of the material presented in aclass, he or she may not be able to
express
themselves "with
*
certain
degree
of
organizatioa
Receiving anllEC, therefore, is by
no^means
a
punishment,
According to Sr. Eustace, head of the EnglishDepartment, a well-educated individual is one whocan speak and write well. In addition, the ability tocommunicate thoughts through writing is a basicskill needed in any
job
situatioa Therefore, studentsare invited,
IEC
or nojIEC, to stop by the EnglishClinic,
which
is
located
on the
third
floor
of
Old
Main,to improve their
own-ability
to communicate theirideas for the remainder of their time at Mercyhurst
and
then later
on
in the demanding career world.

Bomb
Scare
Dear
Editor,
|
I am writing this letter on the subect of the bombscare that took place here
on
Thursday, March
6.1,
as a student, saw it as a pretty sick
joke
by someone.I also saw it as a pretty sick thing for a majority ofstudents and
faculty
to laugh at. Of course, at the endsecurity was both laughed at and condemned for itsactions, but ISwould like
toil
thank and congratulate
Wil
Sydow and the security department, CherylFilley, in Information, Sr. Phyllis and anyone else Ihaveforgotten.
They
sure deserve
it.
It may
be
a
1
to1,000 chance that a
bomb
would ever
go
off but if oneever
does
I'm sure glad
to
know
that Security
will
bearound. They sure are downcast around this school(mostly due to administration) but I'll bet that if theyhad more freedom nobody would laugh anymore.And the way this bomb scare was handled proves
how
lucky we
are. So
get with it Mercyhurst
and
let'swatch
out at what
we
laugh at!!!Sincerely, I

like
it either. |

No disrespect was intended.

Over the spring (break, one of the Clevelandtelevision stations was examining the presenteconomy and the current employment statistics. The

This,
however, is not a problem unique to the 20thcentury. Consider, if you will, the case of PrinceHamlet from
Denmark.
I
Hamlet graduated from
College
at a time when thecountry of
Denmark;?
was in a state of economicdecay. In fact,
job
prospects were rotten!Although Hamlet applied
to be
King, he eventuallyreceived a rejection
letter;stating
that his
own
uncle
(who
had been unemployed for years),
had
receivedthe
job.
Outraged at this political nepotism, Hamleturged his fiancee, Ophelia to "get thee to a nunnery
while
they're
still
hiring !"
'
He then sat down with the placement newsletterfrom his alma mater, the
Wittenberg
University forthe Borderline Insane.
One
position that did catch hiseye was that of a loan officer at the First NationalBank of Denmark, but Hamlet quickly reconsideredwhen he remembered the advice of Polonious to
"...neither
a
borrower nor a lender
be."
?
By this time Hamlet was desperate.
He<sat
fordays,pouring over the placement letter trying todecide what to
be
and what
not
to
be.As
a last resort, he applied at the
Rosencrantz
and
GUdenstern
Furniture and
Appliance
Outlet, but
they
were
too
busy planning
their
next
fire sale
to
considerhis resume.Hamlet
finally
did land
a
part-time
job for
the
Bard
ot
Avon, but
this
didn't work out for he couldn't singand really didn't know anything about cosmeticmerchandising.
I
Exhausted
from suffering
the
slings
and
arrows
of
^a^ous
misfortune. Hamlet decided to become
a
poet.
And
here, printed in full, published for the firsttime ever, is his very
first
poem;There

Post
Although the Mercyhurstgates may seem all-too-permanent to those unfortunate souls who have slidinto them on icy winter days,they have not always been afixture on the Mercyhurstcampus.The
"great
cast-iron gateswere constructed long beforeMercyhurst College everexisted, and for many yearsthey guarded the entrance tothe Pittsburgh estate
of|Mr.
Harry
£Thaw
- awealthy^in-dustrialbaron.
Mr J
Thaw isbest noted as the murderer
of
Mr. Stanford White inresponse to a love-triangleinvolving Mr. White and Mr.Thaw's wife. Those personswho have seen the
.tinovie

Girl in the Red VelvetSwing" will
remember!
thescandal, which captured theheadlines of the -nation'spapers in the first decade ofthe 1900s.When Mr. Thaw died in the1940s, his
estate
in Pittsburghwas dismantled and the gateswere sold to MercyhurstCollege. However, thingsweren't all that simple)- itseemed that the gates werenot high enough to admit thetrucks that had to enter thecollege grounds to
make
deliveries. So, the gates
were
altered
and
l
two
\
feet
of
iron
lacework were added to theupper portion, thus giving theneeded clearance. Shortlybefore the college's twenty-fifth anniversary celebration,in 1951, the gates were unveiled, a fitting entrance for
the
college
on the
hill.Prior to the
coming
4
of
thegates,there had been nothing
to
mark
the
college driveway,except a small white shed,used first as a bus Stop, thenas a dog house for Sir^Guy,the college mascot.
