By
Karen Merkle
Jim
LeCorchick,
Mercyhurst's
Sports Information Director, hasdeparted the college as of Mon-day, February
13.
Taking his place as
acting direc-tor is
junior
communications ma-jor,
Greg
Yoko. He will hold theposition until June, when a finaldecision will
be
made. No decisionhas-been made as to who willassume LeCorchick's
|gold
coaching duties,
k
The I posit
ion of Sports Infor-mation Director was designed topromote, publicize, report andgive exposure to sporting eventsand athletes at
Mercy
hurst
College.« |
LeCorchick has held the posi-tion since August of
1982 whenhe'replacedlnterim
director BobShreve.
7 ^W T ^V W
According to Mercy hurst Presi-dent Dr. William P. Garvey,.LeCorchick's departure was theresult of a mutual agreement bet-ween the administration andLeCorchick
himself.
*
'There was a general agree-ment that this (position) wasn'tJim's cup oftea,"Dr. Garvey ex-plained. "We were not satisfiedand neither was he.""Jim's a reporter, an an-nouncer.
He just
doesn't have theaptitude or the interest in theother
aspects
of the
(Sports
Infor-mation Director's) job," Dr.Garvey continued.
\
Athletic Director Len Cyterskiagreed, saying, "I feel disap-pointed that we're losing Jim. Wehave
discussed j
this since I tookover my position on January
2,
and he didn't feel happy here."The decision is
"the
best one
for the
institution
and
Mr. LeCor-chick," Cyterski added. -Jim
Lecorchick
However, another ad-ministrative
official at
Mercy hurstcommented, "He (LeCorchick)was
tired
on Monday.
It was
com-ing on ... a lack of job descrip-tion perhaps." 1
jz
After being unable to reachLeCorchick
by
telephone at homeand at his office, The* Merciadcontacted him in person. LeCor-chick adamantly refused toschedule a time for an interview,and preceded to shut his formeroffice door in a Merciad staffmember's face. Therefore,LeCorchick was unavailable forcomment at press time.Yoko assumed the director'sduties
Monday *af
ernoon,
i
whenDr. Garvey informed him of thedecision."I was pleasantly
surprised
thatI was chosen," Yoko said. "It's
somethingj
that I've alwayswanted to do."
"We've
been impressed withthe job Greg has
done-for
TheMerciad," Dr. Garvey said. "Heknows the college and he knowsLaker sports very well."
Cyterski said the athletic
staff islooking forward to working withGreg, calling him "a young,energetic, dynamic individual.""The first thing
I
have to do isfini.Oy tiuihfi

Yoko said. I'd like
to
stablize theSports Information Depart-ment ... to work closely
with
the
coaches*and
the administration."One project Yoko would like toimplement is to get hometownnewspapers to
^recognize
theirathletes. He would like to begin
writing
press releases about'Hurst athletes and teams for thenewspapers in student'shometowns.
£
{"I'm very grateful to be chosenfor the position," Yoko conclud-ed."I knew that to get a job insports i$ a matter of being in theright place at the right time. Ithank God for
blessingime
withthis opportunity."
Board Of Trustees Approve
1984-85
Tuition Increase
jjBills
to
the normal
full-timestu-
dentlwill
be, about $460 highernext
year
after the Board ofTrustees approved a tuition in-crease last week, Dr. William P.Garvey told The Merciad.The college president said thatthe hike is comprised of $360 fortuition and room rate increases of$90 for dorm dwellers and $100for apartment residents.
It
represents
an
approximatein-crease of eight percent, about thenational college average, he ex-plained. The additional funds willbe used primarily for salary in-creases* financial aid, fringebenefits and utility costs.Dr. Garvey said that although
$100,000
was originally peggedfor student aid use, the ad-ministration is now concernedthat this figure will not be highenough to meet the need.In the past several years, he ex-plained that the Federal govern-ment
has not
significantly increas-ed their financial aid programs,yet the college has raised chargeseach year.
"Hie
kids have
had
to make upthe
difference,";he
said, and thishas brought about a need for ad-ditional institutional aid. "If wedidn't do this, many kids wouldhave to drop out of school.""We're keenly aware and sen-sitive to the problems of ourstudents, or the- increase wouldhave been much higher,"
i
he
added.-Many people argue that inorder to
be
considered a college ofdistinction that
charges have
to bemuch higher,;Dr. Garvey said."People tend to perceive that themore it costs, the better quality it
is.
The
arguement
is that wecharge too little."
:
"The j
real debate is," he ex-plained, "should
Mercy
hurstbecome
more
of
an
elite college?"However, Dr.
Garvey said he
doesnot
want this to
happen, commen-ting! "We are pleased with ourstudent body now."He concluded, "We have abeautiful plant.*>.. when you
loot
at the quality of the campus
and the quality
of the faculty, it isvery reasonable."

Student AddressesPep Band Apathy
I am really upset with the
at-
titude
of the
peoplewithin*thisschool towards the newly formedpep band. This school is trying toform
a
band to give
a
little moreexcitement
to
the|
basketballgames and such, but without thesupport
of
the ^people
we are
nothing.?I try very hard
to
be*at everyrehearsal and performance but nolonger can
I
attend if all I get outof
it is
disappointment.
I
fullyunderstand that the band has
to
be given
a
couple
of
years
to
mature,but nn
the
meantime
I
think that
all
band membersshould be motivated enough to at-tend each practice session
and
each performance
as
well. Untilthis is reached, I don't believe thatthere should be any more perfor-mances of any kind.It has been
I
proven that* wheneach
and
every member
of the
band does in fact attend the prac-tices
and
performances
*
we > canperform quite well. The problemisthat this does no?happen veryoften. A few members alone cannot make up the band; there hasto
be a
joint effort betweeneveryone to keep this band alive.|*I am not putting down everyonethough.
I
give much acclaim
to
each and everyfperson that sup-
ports*
the band. The one thing
I
can
not
understand though,
is
why nothing better can come outof this band when we are given
a
surplus
of
money from
Dr.
D'Angelo.
If
this school reallywants a band I think that
it
shouldsupport us even if it is only a littlebit. For the entire year we havelacked adequate suppply of musicand therefore limited our range ofmusic style. We have
not
beensupported
by the
school
in
another way also. Does the foot-

I
thinkthat if the school wanted the bandbad .enough
it
could have easilysupported us with fifteen or twen-ty band shirts,
I
sincerely hopethat
in the
upcoming years
the
band will
be
given
I
a little morerespect
for
what
it
deserves.
If
not, I am afraid that this band willnot flourish but remain virtuallywhat it is today.In conclusion,
I
hope that thefeelings
I
express are
not
solelythose of mine but of everyone in-volved with the band. For me,
I
am tired
of
being laughed
at
andhumiliated* from my* fellowclassmates,
but
until

bandbecomes fully organized I guess itis all
I
can expect.Greg Bleakley

Due
