Garvey surveyworks
By Anne L. McNeils
Copy Editor
"Do we or do we not want achance to evaluate Dr.
Garvey?"
asked MSG President George
Pay
dock at Monday's meeting.
Pay
dock was
referring
to the up-coming contract evaluation forPresident William Garvey.
Garvey's
evaluation will bebased in part on the results of
a
survey given to members of the
Mercy
hurst
College
Senate. Ninemembers of the Senate are stu-
dents.
According to Barbara Behan,president of the Senate, only twosurveys
were
returned that identi-fied the respondents as students.
Behansa id she
also
received
eightsurveys on which the respondentsdid not classify themselves.Some reps
said
students
are
ill-
equipped to properly evaluateGarvey.
Vice-President KristenHurdJ
a member of the Senate,said
'They're
looking for validevaluations of Garvey.
She
sa id
there is "a question of (studentshaving) substantial information"about
Garvey *s
job.Secretary Jessica
Cuffia
said "Ifelt
ignorant
0
when filling out thesurvey because she said she didnot have enough informationabout Garvey.Junior Rep Charlie Caryl saidhe felt the surveys were not dis-tributed early enough. The stu-dent Senators are supposed to re-spond
to jthe
surveys based onstudents' overall opinions. "Wegot the surveys two days in ad-vance," Caryl said, "In essence,we
had to
solicit 300 opinio
ns
ofGarvey in two days. That's not
fair
to student Senators."Caryl also said he "was sort ofinsulted (by the questions on thesurvey). I'm alienated from the
president
Senior Rep. Jeff
Hutchinsonsaid he docs
not think students areequipped to evaluate Garvey. Hemoved that
MSG
not oppose theupcoming survey of Garvey. The
results
of the vote were 15 infavor
of the
motion and
11
againstit. Since the results did not in-volve
a
two-thirds majority, themotion was
null.
Senior Rep.
Paul
Roth said hethinks the students' opinions ofGarvey are important. He sug-gested that
MSG
produce
a
sur-vey for use later this year or nextyear to obtain "students' generalorientation on Garvey." Rothmoved
to
form
an ad
hoc commit-tee to create the survey.
The
results
of the vote for
Roth's
motion were 24 in favor and two
reps,
Hutchinson and Commuter
Rep.
Tom Giersza 1 absta
ined fromthe
vote.
Roth was nominated to
chair
the committee.
Any studen
tsinterested in joining the surveycommittee should contact theMSG office at extension 2428.
Pay
dock also
said
there will be
a
blessing of the candle holder forthe Grotto on Friday. The bless-ing
will
be
part
of Founder's Day,which begins at 2 p.m.Anyone interested in purchas-ing a
candlelshould

McQuillen'mugs' bicentennial
L\ bit
of
history
By Megan Circle
News Editor
Dan McQuillen is once againtaking
on
the business
world;
dis-
playing
his
creativity
on
mugs
forErie's bicentennial celebration.McQuillen worked at the Bi-centennial office for three weeksover the summer. As bids werebeing taken for such things as t-
shirts
and towels, McQuillen de-cided to put in his own bid to
create mugs
to
commemorate theoccasion.The mugs feature famous Eriehistorical figures. There are fourdifferent mugs featuring StrongVincent, Harry T. Burleigh,Daniel Dobbins, and OliverHazzard Perry.McQuillen has already printed1,000 mugs. The Bicentennialoffice is supposed to take care ofmost of the distribution, butMcQuillen said that he will bemaking some trips
himself.
"J.C.
Penny has already bought
80,
and
Dahlkempers
has showninterest," he said. The mugs sellfor $4.95, and can be purchasedfrom McQuillen or
at
storesaround the area.This
is
not
the
first venture
into
the business world for McQuillen.In the past, he has had a contractwith
a
clip
art
 firm
 out
of Calgary.He designs characters, and thefirm, in turn, puts them on disk.He also sold his illustrations to
a
company called LouisGarneau,which
is a
clothing manufacturer.This company outfits the U. S.National
Ski
Team and the Cana-dian cycling team.The deal with Louis Garneauproved to be very profitable forMcQuillen.
"With
the money Imade I was able to go to Europe
twice,"
he said.McQuillen said that illustrating
is
just something he does for funat this point. He really wants towrite, but would take
a
job as anillustrator to make some
extra
money."As long as it's fun and I keep
making
money,
what the
hell!"
he
said.

If you
have
been looking aroundthe campus, you may have no-ticed some new* trees plantedaround Old Main, Zurn and theD'Angelo^building, McAuleyHall and the walkway to theGrotto. These are trees from
dif-
ferent periods of American his-tory. A company called Ameri-can Forestry got trees from fa-mous American sites and plantsfrom around different places.Mercyhurst College got 20 ofthese special trees and plantedthem around the campus. Theschool got trees from GeorgeWashington's home, MountVernon. There
are
also trees from
Monticell
o,
and
places associatedwith Zachary Taylor, Abe Lin-coln,
*Woodrtow
Wilson}*
HarryTruman, Lyndon Johnson,Gettysburg, Fort Ticonderoga,and Martin Luther King, Jr. Inthree to
Gve
years,
when

treesgrow, the school is going to putmetal plates
on
the trees so peoplewill know where they came from.President William P. Garveysaid, "The history trees will adddimension to the natural beautyof
the

Onceyou'vetasted
Godivachoco-
late you'll
never
want
to go
back
to Pulakos, at least that's the as-sumption.Last Thursday night I went tosee The Erie Playhouse's open-ing night
production
of
Annie
Warbucksy
the new sequel to theBroadway hit
Annie.
I
had 'the
opportunity to see this show offBroadway in New York City lastDecember and was blown away.
Annie
War
 bucks
begins whereAnnie
leaves
off,
Christmas
1933.
Commissioner Doyle of NewYork Cjty, played by KarenNasca, enters and tells
l
OliverWarbucks that his adoption oforphan Annie, played by GillianGarcia, will be
il 1 ega

unless hefinds
a
wife
and
mother for Anniein 60 days.This is a musical lover's musi-
cal.
It appeals to audiences of all
ages
with its great songs, humor,intrigue, suspense,
and
even
a
liveanimal.
More
importantly,
A nnieWarbucks
relies on
a
solid
cast
of
actors
with strong voices and act-ing ability.
This
is
not
a
show that
can
carry itself hrough with fancyspecial effects and grand sets. Thiswas the Godiva chocolate of mu-sicals,simple and
elegant-a

Seeing the show first in NewYork City, the
mecca
of theater,provided me with
a
chance to seesome of the best talent this coun- |try
has to
offer.
Thus
I
was
unsure
arrived. From
the
lead
roles
to
thewhether my expectations
would
be
met at a regional theater com-pany. Could Erie
come up
withactors who could compete
with
those in NYC?They did and I was pleasantlysurprised. From the first song Iwas impressed. With each newnumber I was
wa
iting for that oneactor who just could not sustainthe momentum. That actor neverextras, each part was excellent.Like "Pulakos, a local candy-maker, each morsal could be astasty as those "classic"
out-of-
town chocolates.
Mercy hurst's
own LymrYusz,a non-traditional student, has anextensive role in this show aschauffeur to her own little or-phans,Cassandra Yusz and JesiBrown , who play Molly andTessie^respectively. She says:
'They
had a
terrific
time doing
the
show; the cast really jelled. Itwas a party atmosphere. Whenthe kids missed trick or treatingthe cast all brought in candy forthem."To those of you who have cutyourselves off from
the
local
cul-ture,
shame
on
you*
New
York isgreat and wonder
fu 1 but
don' t losesight of the local gems that areunder your very eyes. I wouldrecommend this show to every-
one.
But hurry. There are onlyseven
shows
left.
Tickets are
$16for adults,
$15
for senior citizensand $7 for children and studentsand can be reserved by
calling
454-2852. With

this is a great bargain to boot.Bring
