Calendar Proposal
Rejected;No Alternatives!
In Sight I
Dr. John J.
Millar,
dean of thecollege, has decided to drop anyplans to change the currentcalendar to a
4-3-3.
This decision
came
in
response
to
the AcademicPolicies Committee unanimousrejection of
the
proposal at ameeting held last Thursday in thefaculty lounge.
|K * g
The proposal, which called forthe elimination of intersessionand the implementation of a four-course, 13-week fall term, wasviewed as a short-term cure withno long-term benefits for thecollege.
*fc:
Jg
fey"To try to change the calendarto meet new programs at thispoint is
too
rushed," said ThomasTeeters, chairman of the businessdivision. Citing the need for someeffective long-range planning,Teeters went on to say that "Thecollege has to start developingalternatives, not for this coming
fall
but
-the
next."*Dr. Igor Stalsky, head of thetheatre department, concurredwith Teeters in his evaluation ofthe calendar proposal, Com-menting on the current
3-1-3-3
academic calendar, Stalsky saidthat it had
"outlived"
"outlivedthe usefulness it had during theBlueprint I
era".£ Particularly
ineffective, he
felt|
was in-tersession which he stated
was
"not working."
1
The student evaluation, con-ducted
by
the
MSG,
showed that
a
greater than two to
one |
ratiopreferred the calendar currentlyin operation. Sixty-seven percentof the 640 students surveyedpreferred the
3-1-3-3
calendar asopposed to 27.1 percent of thestudents who
felt
a change wasneeded. Five percent of thosestudents polled had no
opinion.
S
While the; seven
*
committeemembers were unanimous intheir evaluation of the proposal,there was no consensus con-cerning the need for change.Questioning the* need to changethe current academic calendar,Thomas Billingsley, Director ofInstitutional Planning andResearch said "I'm not convincedthat intersession is going to fallthrough. I believe we have to
sit
down and assess the need tochange."

The committee shortlythereafter decided unanimouslyto recommend that furtherresearch be done on the variouscalendar options available to thecollege.

I
Former Student Defends The
Dear Editor:In response to a recent articleabout
Way
International whichappeared in the Merciad, Ibelieve I can add more in-formation and clarify some of thefacts mentioned. Last year I.was a student
at ^ this
college,*and in my heart I yearned as all*men do, for the truth. I wantedto know God, to know the Bible,and"to
be able^to^appry
God's*-word in my life? I have foundmy answers, by God's grace,and with the help of the Way)
Ministry.
:^\
The way International is aBiblical research and teachingMinistry. It is neither a
"Cult"
nor a
church.
I truly
believe, as doall those associated with this
ministry,
that
the Bible
is the onlyacceptable standard of truth. Thetraditions and | creeds of "or-
thodox"'religons
are fine, butthey mean nothing if they do notline
up with
what the
Word
of
God
says. Man with his feeble mindhas managed to come up
with
what hundreds
upon hundreds
ofreligions, who all claim to be thetruth. DenominationalChristianity has succeded insplitting up the church of God,which
is
supposed to be one
bodyd
Cor.
12:12,13)
into dozens
and dozens
of bodies.
Is
it possiblethat "Orthodox" Christianityscrewed up?
J-
The
basic "Creed" of
the Way
isthat "The
Word
of
God
is the willof God." The King James Ver-sion, Revised Standard Version,and countless others are alltranslations and versions of theoriginal "God Breathed" word,and so we must research if weexpect to get past- the humanerror of the translators. Men andgrowing experience. However, inattempting to serve the students'needs, some additional factorsmust
be
looked at.
Adapting takes
 time.
 Whether itbe two days or two months, thereis the issue of transition thatmakes individual campaigning aburden. Student officers have lessthan a year to serve their con-stituents. It only makes sense,therefore, that time be takenbefore the election to establishsome shared objectives so that amaxim
um
can be achieved
in
thecourse of the following academicyear.
y.
i
Opinion here has it thatpotential student politicians
should
consider running
in
partiesof four for two reasons. First, theparties could form collectiveplatforms before entering office
(hat
would save the time offiguring out objectives afterelection. Second, the team effortseems more collegial anddemocratic. It's food for thought.
Way' *
women
of*thejWay
have beenresearching ancient texts of theGreek, Aramaic, and Hebrewlanguages for over 37 years, andthe research continues today. Wedon't claim to know all the an-swers! nor do we expect to learnthem all, but we deal with theWord
iv
honestly, with outpreconcieved
^
notions ortraditions.
T'?
:
:
±
"
As Tor" the sincerity of thefollowers of the Way, I feel I canspeak for all. We have a genuinedesire to help people, and we arebold to go out and speak what webelieve is the truth, even iforganized Christianity gets of-fended
by
what
we
say.
When
wasthe last time you got excitedenough about Jesus Christ to goout and tell a perfect strangerabout what he did for you? Welllet me tell you, I've seen peoplehealed, and I've seen miracles,and I've seen my whole lifechange. I am currently servingone year as an Ambassador for
the Lord
Jesus
Christ,
and
I
havesomething to teach people thatcan change their lives. It is theWord of God.
( *
I don't expect the churches towelcome us with open arms, nordo I expect the press to give usfront page headlines for all thedeliverance people
have
recievedin their lives. But I do expect tolive my life without un-dueharassment because I don'tbelieve
what you
believe. This is
a
free country, and each man isentitled to freely choose what tobelieve. So don't let the fear inyour life keep you from listeningto a Way believer, he just may
teach
you something you've beenwaiting all your life to hear

A Memo To Mr.
Kldd
The MSG Colls For Fund Balance
We the executive board of theMercyhurst Student Governmentlike to inform you of our decisionto open our own checking andsavings account with the presentbalance of the student govern-ment funds.
* W
We feel that this action is anabsolute necessity for the
future
of student government, which is
not
just
the
organized voice of the
st
udents, but also a learning toolfor all those involved in it.This will be a permanent ac-count that will be carried overfrom year to year through the
student
services office,
who
willassist with the transition of thenew officers.
»
The two-signature
3
rulepresently used to cashing checkswill still be utilized to insure thesecurity of
the
account.
Also, eachofficer will inform his or herreplacement of all theirresponsibilities regarding the useof the account.
f.
.
t
The purpose of this action is toenhance the educational value ofthe student government offices
and to
strengthen
the
governmentas an
organization*^by
giving itcomplete control of the fundscollected in the form of a studentfee.
g
i
''The
student*
body elected usunder
the
assumption that
we
willbe given that control we believethat it is our job as experiencedofficers
to
see to it that the futurestudent government officersactually acquire the respon-sibilities they will be elected toundertake.
* *Hf
y.
«tThe i inconvenience
of
«the
present system of
requesting
ourmoney
ten days in
advance
makesit
impossible
to pay
any
unf
 orseenexpenses. It also slows down andcomplicates the accounting book-work of the government.
^ We
must have the accessibilityto simplify the bookwork in order
to have
a complete understandingof our financial situation at anygiven time. We must know at alltimes exactly
how
much money isbeing spent and how much wehave left.Another very important con*sideration involved in thisdecision is that the studentgovernment receives no intereston its money at the present time.The interest on a $75,000 accountis considerable and shouldrightfully belong to the govern-
ment .
2|
3*
In these days of rapid inflation,it is vital that each outgoinggovernmental
body
leaves a largeenough sum for the next govern-ment to start with. The interestearned over
the
summer months
will
greatly
laid
the incomingstudent government of the future.As elected student officials webelieve that it is our duty to seethat this account be opened byApril 2, 1980 and be replenishedeach fall term immediatelyfollowing the collection of
the
student government funds.

Outlook
'80
- John Anderson
by Steve
Frisina
Ed. Note: This Is the sixth in aseries of columns dealing withthis year's presidential hopefuls.With a liberal flair and a for-
thright
ness in speech that cutsthrough the thickest of politicalrhetoric, Representative John B.Anderson of Illinois hasestablished
himself
as
a
late-blooming force in this year'spresidential race.
-
The 58-year-old Anderson, who
thrust-nimseit into
prominencewith impressive showings in the
Off
>iii.-qi> Press Swwca
Massachusetts and Vermontprimaries,
-attributes
hispopularity to a "hunger on thepart of the American people for acandidate
who will
talk
honestly."
If honesty and specifics werethe ingredients necessary to lockup the nomination, the Illinoisrepresentative could have restedeasy after the Iowa caucusdebate. Speaking on topicsranging from
50
cent gas taxationto gun control, Anderson let thepublic know where he stood onsome very volatile issues.Compare this with Republicanopposition such as Reagan, thelast post-pilgrim
to ^
quote JohnWinthrop, Bush, a strong ad-vocate of sweet nothings, and the
also-rans who
are still rehearsingtheir
script,:
and one findsAnderson's no-nonsense frontal tobe a refreshing change of pace.Anderson has found a niche inpresidential politics that
was
formerly inhabited by placerssuch as
Adlai
Stevenson andGeorge Mc,
Govern JBA is
thecollegians'
-,
choice. DenouncingCarter's draft registration plan,calling for gun control andfavoring public funding ofabortion, Anderson has steppedinto the role of the
'Pepsi''
dential candidate of the 8Q's.
On j
the
elder *
front, Andersonhas been turning some heads as
well,
f
His cries
&
for tax cuts,federal
budgets
cuts and billspreventing oil oligopolies haveplaced
him
in good stead with thegrass roots.The biggest problem that
.this
liberal maverick faces is his ownparty. Consensus has it that hiselephant hide
is,fitting
limplyover
what appears
to be a donkeysilhouette. He is
not
a con-ventional company man andbecause he isn't, chances are slimt hat
he will
enter Detroit with the
998
delegates necessary to get theRepublican nod.Anderson is
undaunted,
however, as he maintains hisviability as the Republican GOPcandidate. With Reagan alreadyhaving a third of the delegatesnecessary to get the Republicannomination, Anderson might bewise to read the writing on thewall. The writing does not saythat he should forsake any hopesof ascending to the presidency,but rather that there are a largenumber of frustrated Democrats,independents and college students
that may
be substantial enough topush a third candidate to the topof the heap.

Due to my

I

Bernie's
3.85 QPA and
EganScholarship reflects very highlyon
her

and
"mental
accuracy"
in
answering
questions.Bernie

"The primary thing

that

is a
generalconcern
for the
Miss Penn-sylvania competition.
"I
guessbeing

"is
on my
mind becauseof
the
contemporary modelimage.
But I'm
comfortable
at
my size and
I
don't think
it

me."
&
Out
of
approximately
20

at
the Miss Pennsylvaniacompetition, Bernie said
she
would like
to
finish

least
the
top 10
so
that
she
could performher talent

But
even
if she
doesn't
win,
Berniefeels
she has
gained
new
friendsand experiences through
her
localpageant. "I'm also more aware ofhow
I
present
myself
to
othersboth outwardly
and
inwardly.
I
can
get
more
out of
being withother people
and
hopefully theycan
get
more
out of

me.
Although
right
now my

is
winning MissPennsylvania.
I

In
my hurry to get to the libraryand at the same time avoid all
the
puddles laid
out by
spring,
I
bumped into
a
small boy who wasjust staring into the sky. Just
as I
was about
to fly
into
a
rage
he
pointed
his
finger
out and
said"Look,"
1
followed
the
invisible
line
which
his
finger
had
madeand just barely made
out a pin
point
of red in the sky. I
turnedand mumbled, "That's nice,"
and
walked
off to
study.
But
as I
walked away
I
turnedaround
to
look
again
and
again.Soon there were two, then threebright spots in the sky, each beingheld
by an
invisible thread
and
wagging
a
multi-colored
tail.Down below, connected
by
someunknown force, were childrenflocked around, watching, giglingand shout ing advice
to
theircompanions.

I
stood there
and
rememberedthe
first
time that
I had
flown
a
kite. I was about seven and waited
palienlly
in
line until someonehanded me the string. Then
I
felt
if, all the
power
of the
windtossing, turning
and
pulling
the
kite
and me. I
rememberedtelling my Dad what
I
had felt andhis promise
to
buy
me a
kite thathe
and I
could sail.

And then
I
tried
to
think
of the
last time that
I
knew that
ex-
citement.
II was my 18th
bir-thday,
a
slight
but
steady breeze
stirred
and the sun shone bright.
I
dug
out a pair oXsutuglasscs and
a
three-yeai'oTd KiteTnot
The plastic"no-tear" kind)
and set out to
celebrate. Once again
I
felt
the
power
of the
wind
as it
tossed,turned
and
pulled
my
kite.
And
once again
I
felt
the
excitementas
my Dad
watched
me
skillfully (although
I
knew
it
was only
luck)
get
the string
out
of
the
tree while
the
kite stillflew.

The hourly bells brought
nie
back to
reality
and I
started oncemore toward
the
library.
But an
invisible string pulled inside
of
me,
tossed, turned
and
thenreversed
my
course
and I
foundmyself in the field shouting adviceand feeling
t
he power
of
the
wind.A twelve dollar text book
can
tell
you
where
the
wind comesfrom
and
where
it
goes after
it
passes you by.
A
weatherman cantell
you its
speed
and
direction.But
if
you want to know about
the
personality
of
the wind, become
a
child again
and fly a
kite.
