Government Loses Money
Nearly $5,000
In
Unearned
Interest
By
Fran Moavero /*
It has been calculated that the
Mercy
hurst Student Governmentcould have accumulated about
$5,000
in interest if MSG was notdependent
upon
the
school
to
con-trol MSG finances.Senior
Jim
Steen, MSG accoun-ting representative, realized thegovernment was not receiving in-terest from last year's budget
of
$60,000.
3
Steen consulted PrudentialBache, a stock exchange* firm,concerning last year's interestrates.
A;stock
broke said MSGcould have received an interestrate of 15 percent based on theMSG account of $60,000.
f
Steen computed the loss in in-terest at about $5,000.
^
Steen has submitted a report tothe budget and finance committeewhich*approved the capital
and
disbursements from July
1981-June
1982. ,1
The balance for each monthwas multiplied by
the interest rate
which revealed a monthly interestMSG could have received.
»
The
'total
interest lost was$4,784.65.
.1 $
frAccording to the Interest RateCalculation Report, Steen said theamount of interest does notjiin-
clude
the compounding interestwhich would add more interest tothe $4,784.65.
? f
Gina Frisina, MSG treasureradded, "$5,000 could bring aboutmore activities for students/''$£!According to Frisina, MSGcould receive interest, providedthere was a separate bankaccount.
.:"If
we had our own account,MSG could collect interest insteadof the
school J
collecting the,
in-
terest," said Frisina.
\
"It would be advantageous tohave; our own
account,"
shestated.
* E £
Currently, Sally Schrader, stu-
dent
development secretary, isresponsible for making sure there
are
sufficient
funds in the accountbefore issuing a check to Frisina.If funds
are
not available to
cover
a check, Schrader must waitfor allotments from the
school's
account, explained Frisina.A separate MSG bank accountwould alleviate the problems ofusing a mediator to writer checks,stated Frisina.

Convenience is another advan-tage of having a separate account,she added.Frisina must notify Schrader bya specific day of
the
week when acheck is needed.A separate account cannot be

Of The
Hill ClubChanges Operation Policy
By Karen MerkleThe recently opened Top of theHill Club has made a significantchange in policy after only fournights of operation.Because the club doesn't have aliquor license, alcoholic beverageswill no longer be served to thefaculty administration, and staffmembers who patronize it, accor-ding to Frank Pauze, advisor ofthe program.

'We have no problem with thePLCB (Pennsylvania Liquor Con-trol Board)," Pauze said, referr-ing to rumors of trouble betweenthe club and the Board.The club is in the process of
ap-
plying for a liquor license, butbecause of Pennsylvania's quotasystem, the prospects are notgood.Under the quota system, thereare a prescribed number oflicenses allowed in the area. Thequota for this area has alreadybeen filled.
** Pauze
said the club's best hopeis to buy a license from anotherbusiness. This could costanywhere from $25,000 to$30,000.The Board of Directors alsodicussed the possiblity of
a
charterto give
the
club
tax-exempt
status.
The
club could run under the
Hotel/Restaurant
Managementcharter, but the board decided toapply for their own.Pauze
alsoj
discussed thepossiblity of the club getting atourism license if Mercyhurst canbe shown as a. major center oftourism.
He,was
not optimisticabout this.

Although liquor will
not
beserved, the club will continue tooperate offering food andbeverages prepared by
HRMA
students. Patrons may bring theirown liquor if they desire."We would like the club to be agathering center for the Mer-cyhurst community," Pauze said.Beginning in January,
.Pauze
said the club will be open threenights a week, with an expansionto four nights a week ia March.established this year, but Steenwould like to see the idea initiatednext year.

DentalProgramDefeated
By Carta
Anderson
;
At* a recent Academic Policiescommittee meeting held on Mon-day,
November
-T
29,
a proposalsubmitted by Linda Williams andDonna Wood to begin a Dental
Assisting/
Dental Hygiene pro-gram at Mercyhurst was defeated.
?
Williams, an assistant professorof biology, explained that the ad-ministration
oi
Mercyhurs*
Col-
lege decided not to
accept
afreshman dental assisting
class
for
theJfall
of
1982.*
4
This
decisionwas based on declining
enrollments^for
the
past•.
severalyears, and evidence that the costto students for the program wasexceeded at only one other institu-tion in the nation," addedWilliams. But, students currentlyenrolled in the Mercyhurst dentalprogram will be able to completethe program and graduate.The submitted proposaldescribed
*a
combined Dental
Assisting/Dental
Hygiene Pro-gram with the following entry andexit levels: the first calendar yearconsists' of a CertificationEligibility in Dental Assisting, thesecond academic year consists ofan Associate of Science in DentalHygiene, and lastly, in the fourthacademic year a Bachelor ofScience in Allied Health would begiven to students.
, *?
Williams cited why she felt theprogram would
be
beneficial.
"The
growth potential for thefield is high, and it is a flexibleprogram that would attract goodstudents." Williams
explained
another good point of
the
propos-ed program is that $60,000 worthof equipment already owned bythe college could be utilized, andone half of the equipment is in-stalled and ready for use."The most controversial issueand my major objection about theproposal is that the Dean submit-ted the recommendation to thePresident before the committee,and the President
rendered
a deci-sion of no before
the
committeevoted on the proposal," stated'Williams. •David D. Palmer,

MSG Accepts
\
Criminal Justice Guidelines
The Mercyhurst StudentsGovernment accepted* theguidelines of the Judicial Boardproceedings to the
Criminal
Justice proposal which wasrecently accepted at a previousMSG meeting.Various changes and clarifica-tions were made within theguidelines so stements could notbe interpreted inaccurately.The function of the JudicialBoard is to adjudicate allegedviolations of rights of individualstudents and
penalties-imposed
bydean went to a meeting of the ErieDental Society and his conclusion
was,
,**
that
there were too manyrisks associated with the proposalfor it to warrant
his
support."
Dr.William P. Garvey, president ofthe college accepted the dean'srecommendation. The vote at thecommittee meeting was: 5 voted
no,
3 abstentions, and 0 yes.Therefore, the motion wasdefeated.

Williams explained that furtherinvestigation and research will bepresented in the near future aboutdeveloping a Dental
Assisting/Dental
Hygiene majorat the college.
i
;ollege officials.The guidelines state, "the
Doard
shall consist of
*four
members and- a chairpersonselected
from
the full time studentroster and two full time facultymembers." $

A
proposal
recently accepted
byMSG stipulates that at least onestudent member must be selectedfrom the Association of BlackCollegians and/or the ForeignStudent Organization.

Campus Living
Consideration Is The Key
The following editorial
Is
being reprinted from
the
October
26,
Westminster
HOLCAD
student newspaper.
In
view of the
fact
that finals take place next week and
end-of-term
projects
are
receiving their finishing touches, the subject matter of thiseditorial is quite
pertinent.
R
It is two in the morning, and you have just finished study-ing for a Friday exam. What you need now is sleep, so thatyou can make it to your eight
o'clock.
Suddenly you hear theculturally enriching sound" of AC/DC reverberating fromthe next room. At this point you have several options, you
can:
a) Roll over and try to sleep; b) Beat on the wall and tellthem to turn it down; c) Shut off the main power switch forthe dorm,
i i i
^Hopefully,
you have never had to deal with this particularproblem. However, in
a
dorm
situation
this does
occur.
It
canhappen not only at two a.m.; but at two p.m. Conflicts ofschedules are a serious problem anywhere you have sharedliving conditions. It is important for you to realize that atsome point you and your neighbor must
come
to
terms. Noneof the above mentioned options will solve the problem.On this campus we have certain rules that the administra-tion has made to serve as guidelines for student behavior. Itwould be as difficult for the administration to anticipate resi-dent's hours as it would be for them to state in the handbooksome objective measure of what constitutes too much noise.The residence hall staff may set up quiet hours, but it is thepeople in the
hall
who must enforce them. The administrationdoes not pay staff enough for them to be your mothers andfathers. Resident Assistants are there to
"assist"
residents inkeeping the hall intact. They are not there to babysit.When someone's stereo is bothering you, tell them. Don'tyell
or
beat on the wall, go to them and explain the problem.If you take the initiative and keep your temper, you'll find
f
that they will usually listen. There have been too many hallsturned into "Animal Houses" because the residents didn'ttake on the responsibility of maintaining order.
I
f
you
like toplay your stereo loudly, be considerate. There are too
many a
people living in a residence hall for us all to be egocentric. Ifyou are constantly testing your speakers latenight you mayfind yourself held in very low esteem by your hall.So the next time you crank your stereo at an odd hour,remember that you are not the only one in your hall. Put onyour headphones.

Alcohol Problem"Virtually Nonexistent
9
Dear Editor:
"-*
An unfair
and
unwarrantedcampaign is being waged against
a
nonexistent problem here
at the
•Hurst. Phyllis Aieilo, Director ofHousing,
is
trying
to
abolish
the
traditional weekend parties heldat various campus apartments.But*
in
actuality,
we the
students
of
Mercyhurst,
can do
nothing to stop her. Legally, she isin the right. She
is
backed up by
a
Pennsylvania
law
that
we are all
familiar with, but not too satis fiedwith. However,
we
can
try to
ap-peal
to her
rationally.
I
contend
Letter
m,
i
that other than
the one in Ms.
AieDo's head,
the
alcohol'pro-blem on the Mercyhurst campus
is
virtually nonexistent.It
is a
fact
of
life that collegestudents drink. Given this, isn't
a
campus party the safest mode
for
fulfilling the students* need?The ramifications
of
whatPhyllis
is
attempting
to do
couldbe disastrous. Since only privateparties would
be
held, somestudents would lose
out on the
social aspect
of
college life thatone finds
at
campus parties.Therefore,
the
Mercyhurst com-munity would be reduced to a vastnumber
of
small cliques. The lackof parties
for
the students
of
Mer-cyhurst would cause many peopleto lose
out on the fun of
makingnew friends.
*;
The major problem here
is
thatstudents will
be
forced
off-
campus
to
fulfill their need
for
socialization.
I
can't emphasizeenough
the
dangers this wouldpresent,
for the
students*here
at
the 'Hurst. Forcing students
off-
campus
to
party would jeopardizethe lives
of
Mercyhurst studentswho
are
driving home drunk.
In
conclusion,
I
consider
myself,
as
well
as the
vast majority
of
Mer-cyhurst students, social drinkers.As
for
George
S.
Of
he
really
ex-
ists),
his
unique'problem wouldmake
an
excellent psychologicalcase study. However,
he
deceiveshimself
by
labeling himself
as an
average Mercyhurst Collegestudent.

To my

to be
more adult fans

I
realize that not everyoneis
a

or a
basket-ball fan
for
that matter. But
I am
willing
to
bet that there are morebasketball fans
on
campus thanwere
in
attendance
at
Mondaynight's game.It
is not
just
the
lack
of
atten-dance
at
one game which has pro-mpted this letter. There appears tobe a continual lack
of
student sup-port
for
Mercyhurst Athleticsperiod. The bottom line is that wehave
an
excellent coach
and
coachingstaff
and
outstandingyoung talent associated with
our
basketball program.For those
of you who are
basketball fans and enjoy
an "up

I
suggestyou get
to

for
our next home game. Where elsecan
you

Some changes have taken placein the Physical Education Depart-ment since last year. Writing thisarticle is a
welcome
opportunityto clarify
.those
changes to theMercyhurst College Community.Our department operates In-dependently of, but in coopera-tion with, the intramural andathletic departments.
A
We
offercredit classes as
well
as basic in-struction and participation in clubsport activities and opportunitiesfor recreation in the recreationclubs.-Our credit course in physicalfitness provides individuals withthe theory necessary to establishand maintain a personal fitness
program
 
This
an
important phasein educating individuals to per-sonal
responsibility
for one'soverall health. (At
some
time inthe future.
I
hope that this coursemay serve to provide education inthe life styling component of theholistic health program proposedin the
five
year plan and being in-itiated by an ad hoc committee ofthe Campus Life Committee.)The remainder of
our
creditcourses are those which meet therequirements for the CoachingMinor, previously known as
the
Coaching Certificate Program.The specific courses required
forthjs
minor are listed are listed inthe school catalog
with
most ofthem being offered every year,Any student beginning in this pro-gram this year* will follow thisplan. Those
who
\
took
courses
previously^may still use thosecourses toward completion of theminor. All students in the pro-gram should be in touch with thephysical education director inorder to establish a plan of study.The activity aspect of physicalfitness is dealt with in the clubprograms. Faculty,
staff,
ad-ministration, full-time and part-time students may enroll for anyof the club activities.The department
^has
a non-credit sports club program inwhich, basic activity skills are
taught/supervised
by physicaleducation
staff.
Certain
sports
ac-tivities will be offered each termand
will
be listed in the collegeclass schedule under the physicaleducation department listings. In-dividuals simply report to theCampus
