Kennedy defineson campus
By

Editor In
Chief
As
mandated
by the
governor
of Penn-sylvania, the Liquor Control Board(LCB) is required to make at least twovisits to each college in the state.Officially named the PennsylvaniaLiquor Control Enforcement (PLCE),
the
organization is
a
branch of the StatePolice
and
has
authority anywhere
in the
state, according to William Kennedy,vice-president of student services.
"It's
not
that we invite them. They'rejust here/' Kennedy said.
PLCE
visited campus this
past
week-
end
and
Kennedy would
not
be surprisedif they returned for Spring Activitiesweekend beginning on Friday, May 7.

They keep their ears

administration
or residence life staff are not notifiedprior
to
PLCEvisits.
"They
do contact us
when
they
come on
the
campus," he said.
At
times, PLCE requests security
to
ac-company
them
and
other times they
pre-fer
to
be on their own."You have to understand," Kennedysaid,
"they
have the whole codery of
a

that

although
Mercyhurst is
a
private college, it doesnot
fall,under
the same guidelines as
private
property. One reason for this isthat the roads through the college arepublic roads,
where state
police
are
free
to
enforce
the
law.In past visits, PLCE has confiscateddrivers' licensenses and fined studentsfor underage drinking. However, it ispossible for those of legal age to becharged
with
public drunkenness, aidingand abetting or serving alcohol to mi-nors.

Students, administrator discuss Bruno's presidency
Now that George Paydock has takenthe reins as new MSG president,
John
Bruno's
term
in
office
for
this
academicyear
can
be evaluated as
a
whole.
Although
Bruno could
not be
reachedfor comment, several students and anadministrator expressed their feelingsabout his performance on the conditiontheir identities be concealed.Some students pointed to what theyfelt were Bruno's accomplishments.Extended weight room hours, music in
the
ice
 rink
 and
the Blues Traveler con-cert were some successes attributed toBruno.his side of
the
story."The students and administrator alsoreferred to recent events involving
Bruno's article
in the
March
issue of theFreedom Zone entitled The Art ofShredding revisited."
The
administratorsaid,
"Whatever
good he may have ac-complished
was
marred
by his
attack
on
(former Merciad Editor) Joe Legler."
Theadministratorfeelsthisiswhatpeople
are
going to remember.However,
one
MSG representative
had
other
feelings.
She
found Bruno
to
have"political
overtones. Often times hewould persuade MSG to do what hewanted by means of intimidation."Another student said,
"Things
couldhave been
a lot
better. Having
the
sameroutines over
and
over is
not
working."She said MSG needs some new ideas.Another student who was interviewedhad
a
positive reaction to Bruno's term
in
office.
"I like
what
he's
done
to
shake
up the
administration," she said. *Paydock said,
"Bruno
was misunder-stood"
and
pointed out that
as
President,
Bruno
"was
under
a
lotof
pressure." Hebelieves
