MSGOffers Cafferty $12,000To Appear At Warner Theatre
By Debbie Hison
'_4-
The Warner Theater will be the sitefor the tentatively scheduled April 25concert featuring John Cafferty andthe Beaver Brown
BandrThe
band wasone of three being considered by theSpecial Projects Committee of theMercyhurst Student Government.

According to Bryan Doherty, one ofthe coordinators of the event, an infor-
mal
pool of students was taken in thecafeteria, Itownhouses, and Briggsapartments to see which band the Mer-cyhurst students favored.
g
Although Bryan Adams was favoredin the written survey,
he
becameunavailable for the spring concertbecause of scheduling changes. Theinformal
fsurvey
consisted of suchbands as Scandal,
Frankie
Goes ToHollywood, and Cafferty.

John
Caffertyc
was the favoriteamong the
Students
and many otherfactors
were
involved in the selection,said Doherty. Although Scandal will beon tour in the Spring, no concert dateshave been announced.fAlso,Frankie Goes To Hollywoodannounced the start
jjof
their tour in
April,
but they are opening on th WestCoast. Since John Cafferty would be inthe New Hampshire area during thescheduled date, he was favored.According to
Catferty's
agent, HarrisGoldberg of Concert Ideas, a stop in
Erie would
not be that far away.Since a contract has not been
sign-
ed by Cafferty,! Goldberg assuredDoherty that the band would most pro-bably be available.Eventhough the concert is set forThursday, April 25 there were manyproblems in

Although the theater was booked forthe

To
Combat Cuts
ln\Aid
By Lisa Riforgiato
In
a recent issue of
U.S.A.
Today ,Education Secretary William Bennettfully supported President Reagan'sproposed 25 percent cut in federal aidto college students,
j |
By doing! this, students whoseparents make $32,000 or more wouldget little to no aid, and anyone underthat figure would have to prove greatneed to get any help at all.According to Dr. William
P.
Garvey,the cut is not likely to happen and if itdoes it won't be
until
1986. Garvey alsocommented that it would also be quite"watered
down",
f?
About one-quarter to one-third of thestudents at
Mercyhurst'would^be
af-
fected if the proposal were to go
Into
effect, but Garvey stated that
other
measures are already in the works tooff-set the cuts
If
it does occur.

t
These include a 50 to 200 thousanddollar school oriented loan-fund and anadditional $150,000 increase in awardsfrom the
Capital
Fund Drive.
\
Garvey
added,
"We will take steps toaid students in any way if this proposaldoes go through. T
P
Sister Michele, of Financial Aid also
added,
"I cannot see a proposal likethis being
passed,,
too many studentswould be affected, especially, theneediest."

Sister Michele also pointed out that25 percent
-of
Mercyhurst studentshave Pell Grants averaging $1215.00,
whichfls
fairly
high,
and
50'percent
have Guaranteed
Students
Loans(GSL's). This is the place
(GSL's)
wherethe
cut
would have a big impactbecause of the hfgh
percentage
of

students that utilize them.
"N ASF A A| (National
Association ofStudent Financial Aid Administration)Hotline in Harrisburg, PA, said "hear-ings on the proposal will continue inthe House of Representatives until theend of March." Both Republican andDemocratic representatives have saidthat cuts will not be accepted*Representative William P. Ford(Mich-Dem), who is expected to chairthe House Subcommittee on PostSecondary Education this year,
con-
siders the proposal unfair to privatecolleges and universities. It is highlyunlikely to go through.!was
confirmed Ifor
the tentative
concert."
jThe
most
important-factor
in chos-ing that date, said Doherty "Is that allthe colleges in the area will be in ses-sion and the facility was available."OnFebruary!14, through WesternUnion mailgram, a telegram was sentto the agent with a firm offer by theSpecial Projects Committee. Thetelegram stated
that-Bryan
Dohertywith
the authorlzatin
of
E.
William
Ken-
nedy, director of Student Services, wasmaking an offer to the agent for the.performance of John Cafferty and theBeaver Brown Band for that date.Also, the telegram stated the cost of
$10,000-$12,000
would be paid for theirperformance, and a 10 percent com-mission fee would be paid
for
theagent. "They haven't acoepted it yet,"informedDoherty*The
$12,000
along
with
another
$750
has been set aside for the
band.from
the
$19,200lallotted totthe
event.
All
we're waiting for is them to sayTYES,said Doherty. After the contract Is
sign-
ed by the group it cannot be broken by

Doherty is in contact with Goldbergconsistently throughout the week.Some* of the terms outlined by theagent would be an additional $750 forthe two meals for the

membersthat travel with the group.Doherty explained
jthatione
way tocut down on the
costs*would
be towork with the HRM department in help-ing to prepare the meals. "This way itwould make the whole school involvedin the event," said Doherty. |

"At
this time we have two options,we could go for

To keep prices
down,
the
committee
would look at local bands to give themthe exposureneeded,r.Some of the local bands being

sidered
arei
Friction, The Stabilizers,
and
Generic Beat.
"Matt

I
will begoing to the local clubs to check outthe bands", said Doherty. 1
Co-sponsering
the event; with theSpecial Projects Committee will beK1Q4. Working with Bob Nemenz, ac-count executive of K104, they (K104)would be doing the on air promotionsand have free album and ticket giveaways. About
30
tickets would be givento K104 for their promotion, also, theCommittee would buy air time.
?
According to Doherty, K104 waschosen because of their
higrriisteneri
ship In Erie radio, but more Importantlythe audience they attract is the agegroup and type of people who will at-tend the concert.Doherty would like to "thank the stu-
dentfgovernment

Capital Fund Money Showing
Up
Library Improvements
ByBrigidNee ,
Money
.granted ;from
the
Capital Fund Drive is making itpossible
for
the library
to
enhance the circulating bookcollection.
i
***
According
to-
JoanneCopper, director of the library,when Mercyhurst built
its
library it was developed for astudent body of about eighthundred and now
\
there
areabout seventeen hundredstudents at Mercyhurst. "Wehave always tried to upgradethe facility but before now wehaven't had the funds to do it."The most recent and firstaddition to the library are thenew chairs which were
pur-
chased with money from
Ihe
Capital Fund
Drivel
"There arethirty new chairs which costabout two hundred and fiftydollars each. The need for
fur-
niture has been apparent forquite
a
while but even moreimportant is the need for morecirculatory materials for
stu-
dent research," statedCooper.
5
&
One factor influencing theneed for more materials existsbecause
inter-library
coopera-tion has been becoming morepopular, Cooper added."Students are
coming |
from
various*
schools* throughoutthe city
for
specializedmaterials," Cooper said.Cooper made
it
clear thatMercyhurst's library has plen-ty of materials to be used bystudents
in
the library, butwith
the
new circulatingmaterials students
will
be ableto borrow without having toomuch trouble.
