MERCYHURST COLLEGEAPRIL
Tl,
1980
Tuition IncreaseAnnounced
George Kidd, vice president ofbusiness services, has announcedthat the Board of Trusteesap-proved an increase that will raisethe total cost of Mercyhurst by$425.
*
\
^Headlining
the increase istuition, which will increase $305for the 1980-81 academic year.The trustees added to the in-crease by
voting ^to
raise room
Kidd
George Kiddand board each by
$60.
The $425total will hike full-timeenrollment costs to $4930.According
to
Kidd
these
figures
represent an overall increase of9.4 percent, a figure
"significantly
below the 13 to 17percent
totals 8
being announcedby privately-sponsored andpublicly-sponsored colleges anduniversities across the nation."In a letter being sent toparents, Kidd points out thatwhile the costs for the 1980-81year are increasing, there
will
bea
"100
percent increase in dollarsavailable to Mercyhurst students
through
federal campus-basedfinancial assistance programs?**'
Ljj
Kidd went
further in
the letterto state that the college has -in-stituted a Sibling ScholarshipProgram, effective in Sep-tember, which will
-
benefitbrothers and sisters attendingthe college. Under the newprogram,
upperclassmen
willpay full tuition, while the siblingbrot her or sister
will
be
granted a$500 tuition
reduction.
J
While
he expects overall costsof maintaining the college toincrease, Kidd pointed out thatfaculty would be receiving ninepercent wage increases to meetcosts
of*
living. All other wageincreases, Kidd said, would beunder the nine percent figure.
Carter Calls
For Cut
Federal Financial
Aid
High interest rates and
President
Carter's new anti-
inflation ^program
may soonmake it harder for middle classstudents to get federal financialaid.
^j *
r
.;
Carter's anti-inflationprogram includes a proposal tostop aid to 450,000 of the 1.8million students currentlycovered under
the
Middle
IncomeStudent Assistance Program,which went into effect inNovember, 1978.
£
Bowman Cutter of the Office
of
Management and Budget (OMB)says
the
administration hopes toexpand aid to students from poorfamilies as it cuts assistance tomiddle income students.
^
*&
Before
the"middle
incomestudent program, only studentsfrom families earning less than
$15,000
per year could
qualify
foraid. The new law raised the limitto $25,000.
B
;^
As
a result, a record number
of
students
are now
getting someform of federal aid.
i
A
full third of the student bodyat the University of Houston, forexample, now receives aid.Financial aid at
the
University ofKansas has increased by 70percent since the law was signed.Cutter says that
the
system hasbeen abused, however.
.'.
J
Most of the aid distributed tomiddle income families has comethrough guaranteed loans. Thestudent arranges for a loan froma local bank, while the govern-ment
guarantees Hhat
the loanwill
be
repaid.
The student makesno payments on the loan untilafter graduation, when he or shepays seven percent interest. Thegovernment pays the differencebetween seven percent and theinterest rate the bank normallycharges its non-studentcustomers.

jj,
The guaranteed loan programhas become increasingly costlyfor
th
government because recentstudent loans, Cutter says,average around 15 percent in-terest.

The
government
consequentlypays more 'interest — eightpercent — than the student,something Cutter calls "unac-ceptable.

The Fleece And The Sheepskin
On
June 1
the
place
to
be will beMercyhurst College as SenatorWilliam Proxmire addressesgraduates at the 1980 com-mencement ceremonies.
£
Proxmire sticks out like a sorethumb in light of governmentexpenditures with the infamousGolden Fleece Awards. The GFAis a monthly tribute bestowedupon those government agenciesthat
spend
substantial tax dollarson projects that
:
range
fromobscure to absurd.For example,
there
was
a studydone by the Department ofAgriculture that cost the tax-payers
$113,000.-The
results? Itwas found that mothers do notlike to iron clothes,
f
* ?
Another fleece came in theform of a study done by theNational Institute of MentalHealth to discover why bowlers,hockey fans and
pedestrians
smile.
The
cost
was
$75,000. Smileabout that.
S >f |-
But wait, these discoveriesproved to be mere teasers whenthey
were g
compared to somemajor expenditures. For in-stance, Proxmire found out thatone federal body spent 10 years
and
$60 million to learn
that when
people have a guaranteed annualincome, they are less likely to
work< $ 4
The Consumer Product SafetyCommission has spent $157million over
the
past four
years intheir attempt to establish safetystandards. So far they
J
haveproduced three; one for swim-ming pool slides,
i
one
fori
ar-chitectural glass, and one formatchbooks. On the lighter side,the Wisconsin Democrat foundout that the Treasury Depart-ment had
J
"lost" $1.2million in gold from its assayoffice in New York.While
his
address will deal withhigher education, chances {aregood that Senator Proxmire willtouch on his favorite topic - ex-cess government spending. A lotof
future
taxpayers
would
be wiseto listen.

Editorial
The
Fudge-It Budget
Proclaiming that he wants toextend more financial aid to poorcollege? students, PresidentCarter has introduced a proposalthat would terminate financialaid to a quarter of the middle-class college students

attending institutions
of
highei
education.The number of students thatwould be affected, by such aproposal,

if

approved;
--ranges
from 450-500,000. Mr. Carterclaims that
the
current system offederal loans is being abused and
•that
the government is beingforced to pay the difference onthe seven per cent the govern-ment charges in interest and theinterest rate banks are currentlycharging, JThe Office of Management andBudget believes that the federalgovernment is being used as abank, and that this in itself isundesirable.The opinion here is that thefederal government should dosome introspection. First,, priorto
the
current administration, theinflation rate was at a level that

provided
little
or no
burden
to
theinterest rate being charged by
the
feds.
The
government
is
naiveif they think students will go to abank for a 14-15 percent interest
loan.
Second, why do
middle-class
college students have to feel thepinch when the Department ofthe Defense
does not?
The
SenateBudget Committee added almostsix
^
billion^ dollars
^to ^the
President's recommendeddefense appropriation, whichalso called for an
•-•
increase.Granted, the security
of;
thecountry is important. So are theresources that enable students togo
to
college. Just because mindsdon't explode doesn't mean theyshould be ignored.
-%
The third, and final, pointresponds
to Mr.
Carter's desire toextend more
aid
to poor students.With colleges passing double-digit inflation onto their
students
at an average rate of 14 percent,the President need not look anyfurther for spoor students tobestow aid upon. They areeverywhere.

question a look at therack records of both men would

years•resident
Carter has led thisountry into the situation it is inow. In foreign policy the
ad*
illustration's
efforts nave been
mbiguous
at best. The policiestoward the Soviet Union have
been
unclear
in
Cuba, Africa, andnow Afghanistan. To makematters worse, major in-telligence failures have beencommitted in Cuba, Korea, Iran,and Afghanistan. ' The Iranfailure led to our citizens beingtaken hostage. To round out thistotal mismanagement
of'the
Carter Administration in foreignpolicy, SALT II, the cornerstoneof the effort to control theescalation of strategic nuclearweapons between the super-powers, has been bungled to thepoint that even its most
'-op-
timistic supporters in the Senatebelieve its chances forratification are slim at best.
*When
Jimmy Carter took officefour
years
1
ago
inflation
wasabout five percent.' Today it ismore than 13 percent and in-creasing. What makes this facteven worse is that our countrystill has no effective program to

inflation. In the area ofenergy* President Carter hasdecontrolled domestic oil prices.This will cost the averageAmerican family $1000 per yearmore for energy. His energypolicy insists on continued and
increased«reliance

Senator Kennedy does notpretend to have overnightremedies to the serious problemsfacing

combat these problems which islacking

in the currentAdministration. For 17 yearsSenator Kennedy has demon-strated his leadership

inthe United States Senate. Hisrecord shows that, time

jtax
reform, civil rights, health carefor all and justice for seniorcitizens.

not true. The editors were givenoriginal academic transcripts bya very
much
identifiable memberof the teaching faculty, it is truethat the editors did not print hisname.
gjThird
point: You say theeditors did not approach either"the dean, the athletic director,nor the president." Again, this isnot true. They informed theathletic director of the facts theyhad uncovered. But he had "nocomment." For two days, theytried to reach coach Conti, butwith no success. And what"dean" should they have con-sulted— we have over eleven oncampus? And given thepresident's attitude toward TheSpectator, to approach him wasout of the question.

later, on Saturday, February 23,Dr. Cellman came on campusand was handed new, "updated"transcripts. (The administrationnever accused The

updated—by
actions and decisions of theadministration that not need

It

facts—beginning
withfact
one—that

cusing

Reply: Thank you for yourresponse, Dr. Holloway. While ithasn't been rule of thumb for usto respond to letters, I welcomethe opportunity to clarify what Ifeel is a moot issue.
. $
In response to your first point,
yes
THE
SPECTATOR
did,
in ouropinion, misrepresent the facts.On February 23, Dr. Cellman,
NAIA
District 18 eligibilitychairman, stated "After lookingover the transcripts
I
am pleasedto announce that there
were
noproblems or questions."
**
What this mean's to me is thatthe transcripts,
'which
wereoutdated, were not accurategrounds for indictment of thebasketball players. Regardlesswhether the transcripts wereupdated two days or two years,they were legitimate in the eyesof an impartial third party.Your second point seems
self-
defeating
since
the
general publicwas not informed as to theidentity off this very muchidentifiable member of theEdinboro
fa
culty. I
do
not debatethe fact that THE SPECTATORknew the identity.Thank
you
for correcting me inyour third point concerning thenewspaper's^ contact with theathletic director, as well as thenumber of deans. I
mighty
add
that the dean (s) of the ap-propriate school
(s)
of
the
collegeshould have been contacted. . 1I will conclude my reply with arationale that, I feel furtherjustifies the editorial position ofTHE MERCIAD on this subject.As people who yeU
"fire!"
intheatres are held accountable bythe law, journalists who inciteinvestigations based onillegitimate data are responsibleto their peers. Thank you againfor yourresponse.
