Hammermill's history recorded
By Wendy Kaufman
Mercyhurst faculty
The
Best Known Name in Paper
Hammermill, was written by two of
Mercyhurst's
best. Dr. Michael J. Mc-Quillen and College President Dr.William P. Garvey worked together toproduce a chronicle of Hammermill'shistory.The project began when executivesof Hammermill asked local colleges
and
institutions to submit proposals tothe company concerning the corporate
!
II
l
Dr. William P. Garveyhistory. "They came to us," said
Mc-Quillen.
The process began in January,
1984
and
continued through May,
1385,
when
the
final copy of the manuscriptwas submitted.The book tells about a small papermill that began back in 1898 and strug-gled to survive through the Depression
years,
when many Americanbusinesses failed. Even with the oddsagainst them, Hammermill has emerg-ed as a giant corporation, a Fortune500 company and an employer of over
12,000.

Both McQuillen and Garvey agreedthat McQuillen would do the basicresearch and they would
collaberate
on the writing of the text. "Recordsfrom the corporate headquarters here
|
in Erie were the primary source,"
Mc-Quillen
said.
"But
I
also interviewedprominent retirees and executives ofthe company," McQuillen added.Basically, the
first
six chapters!
[evolve
around the "personal touch"that Hammermill possesses: the peo-
ple,
the struggles, the discoveries, themovement. This was maintained
until;
the
mid-1940s. At that time, the
com-
pany went through a period of transfor-mation including the new emergingtechnology, the expansion of the cor-poration and the diversification of theproduct.Hammermill was the
first
paper com-pany to
develop
paper for Xerox. Infact, the corporation was the soledeveloper for years until a mutualagreement was reached for other sup-pliers to join the market.Surprisingly enough, each type
and
brand of paper Hammermill producesis put through 31 different
tests.
"Some of these tests include: moisturecontent, strength and electrostaticchange," said McQuillen.
"I used to
think a piece of paper wasjust another piece of paper," said Mc-
Quillan.
"It's amazing how many
dif-
ferent types of paper
there
are for one
|kind,"
he
said,
referring to one par-ticular brand categorized into different
kinds,
due to weight, finish and grade."Hammermill is a leader in thebusiness of fine and printing paper,"McQuillen stated. Its paper is primarily
Dr. Michael J. McQuillen
for printing
ranging
from menus toadvertising posters, he added.
In
January, the book,
The BestKnown

Paper Hammermill
was published.weekend of Feb, 24. The money will betaken from the Club Projects budget."Hats off to MSG representatives forapproving this proposal," said Arm-
strong,
who was pleased that the pro-posal
was
passed.

Sports Medicine majorsjoin forces for new club
Israelidancer impressedwith dance department 1
By Julie Cherico"The students are takingcharge," claimed Janet Price.Out of the 60 or so SportsMedicine majors, about 60 per-cent are involved and they'retaking advantage of the newlydeveloped Sports Medicine
Club.
Why? Because it givesthe student the opportunity todeal with Issues pertaining toSports Medicine in a
more
pro-fessional manner.
^
Last spring, SportsMedicine majors cametogether, with Janet Price,Brad Jacobson, and SteveDavis to decide if a SportsMedicine Club would be
beneficial
to them and if
it
should be established. Afterdiscussing the topic, thestudents agreed to form the
club.
In December, the pro-gram began its first officialyear.
«T
The club meets once amonth so future goals can beset and previous goals can be
checked.
No dues are paid andno budget is given; the onlymoney received is from
fun-
draisers, which will be
fre-
quent. The money raised will
enable-the
students to
-attend
seminars.

Hospitality welcomes everyone to Campus Ministry
By Jackie
Rzomp
Hospitality
is the
guidingprinciple
of the
MercyhurstCampus Ministry. Manymembers
of
the school com-munity regard Main 211 as
a
place
to get
coffee
or
relaxduring class breaks.
[According
to Karen Donnelly, a partof the Campus
Ministry
team,
"The
room
is
basically
for
socializing and we like to em-phasize that everyone can findhospitality
in
'the CampusMinistry Center."Said Sister ElisabethLinsten, director
of
CampusMinistry,
"We are non
denominational here. Never
is
anyone asked what theirreligion
is.
We are inter-faith
in
that we
try to
get'people
to
realize faith
in
all aspects
of
life.
We
never
disriminate
because
of
religious beliefs.Nobody should feel
In-
timidated by Campus Ministrybecause
of the
religion theychoose to follow."In effort
to
encouragestudents
to
pursue
the
religion
of
their
**
choosing,Campus Ministry bringsstudents
In
contact
with
various churches
in the
Eriearea. Any student who wishesto worship in their own church
will
have transportation. Cam-pus Ministry works in conjunc-tion with many churches
to
find parish families who pro-vide rides
to
weekly worshipservices free of charge.
'
j
Campus Ministry also playsa big role in campus liturgies.Sunday masses include
stu
dent and faculty participants.The folk group at Sunday's 11
a.m.
Mass, ushers, Eucharisticministers,
and the
LiturgyPlanning Committee
are all
services
of
Campus Ministry.Also, under the request of anystudent, special dorm massesand Protestant services can bearranged by Campus Ministry.Every Tuesday
in
CM.,
an
inter-faith bible study takesplace at 4:00
and
Father ChuckSchmitt leads
Raps
on
Religion at 10:30 p.m.
'«
Although Campus Ministrycares for the spiritual growthof the college community,
it
also realizes that eachmember needs
to
grow
in-
tellectually
and
socially
to
gain
a
strong awareness
of
his-her own worth. Thus, Cam-pus Ministry sponsors a varie-
ty
of activities to get people torealize and serve the needs ofthe college, the Erie communi-ty, and the world.Also, once
a
week
a
groupof students visit the elderly atthe Geriatric Annex.
At the
beginning
of
fall semesterCampus Ministry recruitsthose students
who
mightwant
to
brighten the life
of a
convalescent.
It
is of
specialImportance that students
con-
sider
the
visits;
a
year-longresponsibility. Says Donnelly,"Many
of
the people look for-ward
to our
visits. They
