"Our basketball

to

I
think
that
it
is
important to have
an
attractive
house,"said Director of Athletic, Pete Russo.Indeed, Mercyhurst's basketball homeis shining as Russo has led the chargetoward remodeling
the

a

J"We've
got three more scoreboards,courtesy of Pepsi,"
noted
Russo. Adver-tisement
panels

also located
in

scoreboards and will
be

However, perhaps the most noticeabledifference to the face lift is the removalof the large overhang wall directly be-hind the player benches.
"We
took
downthe wall and opened
up
the place," saidRusso.
'It
now looks more spacious. I
did
it primarily
for
visibility,
but it is
alsogood for the building's ventilation."intramural assistantstands below the new scoreboardThe displacement of
the
old scoreboardsand clocks should save operators someunnecessary trouble during Laker con-tests. "The original boards were placed
here when
the building opened in 1977,
"
added Director of Athletic Mainte-nance Dave Cherico,"As you've seen in several games thisseason, the clock has gone out severaltimes during the game. It was time forthem to be replaced,"
he
commented.The new locations of
the
scoreboards
should also
prove beneficial
to
the play-ers themselves. Since they are now lo-cated
on the
baselines of each end of thecourt, players will now have an easiertime singling them out when time iscounting
down
and
the big game
is
on
theline. The four-sided counter at centercourt
was
also taken outThe renovations certainly have madethe athletic center an exciting arena to
take
in a
ball game.
The
changes, as
in a
basketball game
itself,
have involved atotal team effort
"The
new ticket counterwas
made
by
Bob

and

notedCherico.
"All
things
have been
improve-ments
to
the building, which were greatlyneeded."

Thefts that allegedly occurred over thelast two weekends have Bud Dever, di-rector of security, concerned about

cam-pus
ori
weekends."We
are
getting
a
cross section on this
campus
of
a lot
of outsiders;
high
schooltypes are trying to crash the parties and
we
are getting
several students
romothercolleges coming in and partying on ourcampus," said Dever. "Whenever these
kind
of things
start
to
occur, you
tend
tosee thefts like this occur."The thefts Dever is referring to oc-curred on the January 8-9 and January22-23 weekends.At some time over this
past
weekend,Dr. Jack Williams, director of chemis-try/physics department, had a portableSony am/frn
CD
stereo player
and
a
disc-
man CD
player
with earphones
removedfrom
his
office on the third
 floor
 of Zurn.
"He
(Williams) believes
the
door
to
hisoffice
was
locked,"
said
Dever.
"If t
waslocked then entry was made
with
a
keysomehow."The missing property has
an
estimatedvalue
of
$300.Dever said that they have
entered.theserial
number and make of the equip-ment with the
Brie
police
and the
NCIC
(National Crime Information
Center)
in
the
event
that
the
merchandise may
turn
up elsewhere.The other theft that occurred over theJanuary 8-9 weekend involved a resi-dent of 4008 Briggs and a coat that shehas reported stolen."A resident of that
apartment
allegesthat she had
a
black, full-length,
suede
leather
coat taken
at
some
point
over
the
night," said Dever. There had been a
small group
of friends
at a
party; at somepoint
when
the
party
broke
up, the
apart-
ment
was
left unlocked for
the
period oftwo to three hours. She believes that atsome point
during this time
her
coatwastaken."

The
only person
left
in the
apartment
atthe
time
the
theft
is
said
to
have occurred
was
in

according
to
Dever. The otherresidents were out of the
apartment,
but
they left the door unlocked."There were other coats piled on thechair with this coat, but they were leftthere," Dever stated. "However, keyswere removed
'from
the pockets and
M
thrown
on
the floor."
Dever
added
that
it
a ppears
that somebody shuffled
through
all of the coats apparently looking forgoods, eventually making off
with
justthe black suede coat
,
There
was no estimate on the value ofthe coat available.
"In
regards to both of
these
matters, Ihave
a
very deep concern," said Dever.
(We

Moore forsees bright future
By Joseph
Legler
Editor in Chief
In
the
Winter edition of the Col-legiate Trends newsletter, a re-port indicated that 1993 repre-sents the fourth consecutive an-nual decline in hiring intentionsof college graduates among em-ployers. However, the drop alsorepresents the lowest rate of de-cline in the last
12
years.Tyrone Moore, director of ca-reer services, cooperative educa-tion and internship programs,thinks that this will shrink evenmore over the next few years."I think that the economy hasreached a point
where
it
is
going
to really boom within the
next sixto nine months," said Moore.
'That
along with a number ofcorporate entities,
who"'I
thinkhave been on the
('bubble'
for
quite some
time regarding expan-sion, growth, and development,
is
going
to all
combine
into
somepositive things for prospectivecollege graduates."
horn
the perspective of campusrecruiters, the report
indicated
that
the
most serious problems facingrecruiters
are
limited numbers
of
minority and female candidates,
unrealistic expectations
of gradu-ating students and a
lack
of ca-
reer-related
work experienceevi-denced
by job
applicants.In regards to recruiting, Moorestated that his office does every-thing humanly possible to
assist
graduates finding work throughon-campus recruiters, job fairs/career expos, alumni job listingnewsletters, and
a
Career Servicenewsletter.He pointed
out two
specific out-of-town events that have helpedand may help students this year:
1) the PNC
Career
Expo
held thispast January 5 in Pittsburgh and2) the Pittsburgh Educational
Recruiting
Consortium
to be
heldon Wednesday,
March
17.He called these
off-campus job
expos extremely beneficial to allmajors, but especially to majorson our campus where we mayhave only five or ten graduates."If we have only a handful of
graduates in
any given major,
that
makes it cost prohibitive for acompany to want to come toMercyhurst College and recruitthat few students," Moore said.
"So
we try to avail these variousopportunities to those students."The report added that job avail-ability is somewhat better in thesoutheast and north central
re-
gions and more competitive inthe southwest, south central,northeast
and
north west regions.Moore believes that it is stron-ger
in
Southeast
ana
southwestregions because of
the low cost
ofliving. However, he doesn't be-lieve that there is a worse areaanywhere. "There are appropri-ate positions available for indi-viduals everywhere," he said.
"They must
be
wil 1 ing and able to
be geographically mobile
to
moveto the areas of the country thathave a significant need for theirkind of credentials."
The
study reported that employ-ers continue to be very selectiveabout new hires and some em-ployers will not consider
an
ap-plicant
with
less than
a
3.0 GPA.
"The
GPA of
a
student is cer-tainly a factor for a number ofcompanies," Moore said. "How-ever they will rate out, as beingfar more important, the level ofrelated and/or interrelated expe-riences that
a
person would havewithin their field of study."He added that "I strongly urge
students to
be involved
in as many
diverse experiences related to theirmajor
as
humanly possible."Moore encourages graduates tostay in close contact with his of-fice."Any student, in any
major...it
matters
not;
if they are interestedin 'impacting' any organizationthroughout the
country...all
theyneed to do is make an appoint-ment with myself and we willbegin that process of personaliz-ing their career search," Mooreconcluded.

Smith attacks campus counseling
Dear
Editor,
I would like to take some timeto comment on our counselingprogram
!here
at Mercyworld.They have made some changessince last year and they've beengood changes. They have an ac-tual counseling department nowand you can
actually^find
them
which was
next
to
impossible lastyear.However, there are still a few
things tha t
need
to
be worked outFor example, there's only onecounselor and one psychologist,neither of which is full time. Be-cause of this, it can take up to amonth before some people areable
to
see a
counselor.
Does any-one here see a potential problemwith this? I always thought thatthis kind of perceptual blindnesswas typical of most colleges. Ifound out differently over break.Most institutes of higher learn-ing, including Gannon and
Perm
State Behrend, have at least Gvecounselors.
I
'in sorry, gang, buttwo isn't even close to equalingAve.Of course, getting into the pro-gram is half the problem. Thencomes the exciting challenge oftrying to schedule appointments.I personally
had
a nice little gapof
a bit over two months
between
my
last two appointments. That'sridiculous. If I'd gone in to Seethem about something relatively tration with a semi-automaticminor, that would be
ignora
nt butif
you take into
consideration that
I had a
rather
major
problem, it'sjust asinine.How would the administrationhere
explain'to
the parents of astudent who had just
Committed
suicide why there wasn't coun-seling available to
their'child?
"Well,
she/he
looked fine so wethought
she/he-was
fine." Thathonestly seems to me what the
administrators
here really think."No, none of
our*students
haveany problems. This isweapon from the -roof of OldMain? Wake
up
guys!
As'I
see it, there are severalthings they could do
to
better theprogram. First, they could increase
the hours
of current
staff.
Second,hire,
a
few more people. Finally,
how about setting up a peer
coun-
sel
ing program? You could trysetting something
up
through thePsychology
department.
It wouldbe wonderful experience for thestudents going into Clinical andCounseling Psychology.Speaking
now as a

and
signed,
will
require
states to
allow
abortion
even as
a
method of birth control.I could go on
and on with
the atrocities
that this
bill will provide,but
I
don't want to sicken you with anything extremely
offensive
regarding tiny mutilated bodies.I believe
that human life
starts
at
conception.During
the third
week of pregnancy
the
body
and head
of
the child
can be distinguished. The heart begins to pulsate at this time too.Around day 28, eye lenses begin to appear.
By the sixth
week,
the
components of
the
upper
jaw are
prominent;the formation of limbs, hands, and feet are evident
»
By the end of the eighth week, the major external features (ears,eyes, mouth,
upper and
lower limbs, fingers, toes)
are
formed andthe
major organ
systems
have
been established.

*What does
it
take to be
considered
a
human
life? Do these
peopleadvocating for
abortion
on demand believe
that a human 1 ifc isn 't
sountil it is actually birthed? If this is the case, then I guess you canrightfully say
that
it is
OK to carve up a
fetus at
nine months
duringthe labor
period
because it hasn't
been
born yet
t
I've heard several arguments; here aretwo:1)
"lean
do
what I
want!
It's
my
body,
not
your
body.
?
—maybe
you should have
heldmore responsibility with your body before
you'ilet
yourself get
pregnant and
you wouldn't be in this position. You couldn't havethat life in your body without •
man's
fertilization, so
it's
part of ustoo.
We should have
some input into
the
decision process. 2)
"
Whyshould I
bring
a child
into the
world if it's
not going
to be
wanted
by
anyone."
There
are a
countless
number
of
people out there
whowould love to adopt
a
baby.
I would
like
to point out tha 11
would condone abortion
in the
eventof rape or
incest,
but I
would not condone it for anything else.
I
think
that a
man should always stand by
a
woman who
is
going
to have a
child.
So many women ha ve
abortions because
men
decideto
'up and
leave'
when they hear the
news.
Men should
realize their
responsibility
if
they
impregnate
a
woman. However, women should
not automatically
go
out and have
an
abortion
if
a
man leaves.
They
partook
in a sexual
act with
their mate and they knew that
they stoodthe chance of getting pregnant If they get pregnant, they
should
atleast do
the moral
and responsible
thing...have
the baby. Don't killthis unborn life.Abortion is
a
sin. Abortion should be stopped.
&
Fight the Freedom of Choice
Act...contact
your legislators todayand voice your objections.
