Dean Garveyr addressing College
Senate Meeting.
During the past months, the l'h> sica I-Education Department lias undergone many changes. These changes have "caused a variety of opinions involving the different perspectives of students, faculty, the H Phys-Ed Department and the Ad minis tratioa Concerning this matter and all of its perspectives, it is practically impossible to assimilate a clear over-all vievv. Vincent Doran and myself in J interview with (Dean (iarvey, have attempted to present a series of questions which we hope will suitabh answer or raise any of YOU K questions. In any event, the Merciad will appreciate any of your comments concerning!'the release of Miss Forsyth or any of the adjustments inthePhys-EdtDepartment. -J Doran: Was Miss Forsyth released from the college? . Garvey: Yes. Doran: I understand you asked Miss Forsyth and Miss Price,to sign a waiver. Did you ask anyone else in the college to sign a waiver? ' *1 Garvey: No we didn't. We did that to help them. If we had not asked them to sign the waiver, (both of them would have been sent letters of release last October the first. After a person has spent three years at the college, APU regulations stipulate that they be given a year's notice, which means both of them required a year's notice, which means .they had!to be notified at the end of September if they were not going to be rehired. The Phys-Ed situation'' was disastrous. Neither one carried a full teaching load; both had the lightest! teaching load in the college and we could not justify paying the kind of money we were paying for Phys-ed for people who were not fulfilling their contract in terms of work. Now we felts we had af moral obligation* to carry' them the entire year \ whether > they had j enough work or not. However, no college: anyuhere will carry faculty! members who had nothing to do - and that includes this one. Therefore, we explained to them that we would send them their notice at? the end of September and we would of course work all year to try to save the Program and we might be able to rehire one. Oi they could waive their *noticefuntil February, in which case we would try to save the program between September and February. That was done for their benefit. They were not being released*for any reason other than they weren't occupied. ^ | Doran: What relationship does this have i.:-with the! New Curriculum? \ * i Garvey: What happened was that the students didn't take Phys-Ed. That's what's ironic about all this furor on the part of the students. The students are the ones who have refused to take Phys-Ed now. Do you seriously expect a college to canyftwo people who have nothing to do? Now we suggested that the PhysEd Department make a series of changes which would hopefully make it possible for them to increase student enrollments We do not want to see Phys-Edfdisappear from the college, so next year we are going to carry* two Phys-Ed teachers for 600 girls and none for 450 boys is about as lopsided as twojjmen teachers would be. J? LaDuca: What kind of changes will be proposed next year for the Phys-Ed Department? ..Garvey: We are looking-for a series of changes which will provide three-creditcourses.4 l.aDuca: Are they all going to be three Credit courses? Garvey: Yes, so that a student can take a fourth course. We are also considering some theory courses sucri as Theory of Coaching,* Advanced Water Safety or First Aid. i l.aDuca: Will there be an increase M money given to the i Phys-Ed Department next year? . Garvey: Yes. For the lack of facilities, we will have to continue to go off campus more and more. But the student must remember that when we do this, their chances of a tuition increase go

up. We are trying to hold the line on cost. It Sis our responsibility that all-the money spent is ab1 solutely necessary, t ^S *; * > LaDuca: Has the money alloted to the Phys-Ed Department in the past been decreased considerably 7 ihis-year? SifTi ?!? t .Garvey: Yes, because oi the disastrous decrease in enrollment there was no need to allot more money, Y *' k k Doran: As I understand it, a certain amount of the Student Activities fee is given to the Athletic Department. Now that there is an Athletic Department will there be a shift in where that money goes? ?f IS" * & ..Garvey: ^No, thei^Athletic Department will still receive the original twenty percent. In fact we are considering dropping the Activities Fee and picking it up in the tuition cost. i. Doran: What factors were involved in reaching the decision between releasing Miss Forsyth or i\l is s Price? ;*£? . .Garvey: The Department Head recommended that while both arc capable, Miss Price has a more generalized interest and is more useful to the entire * program; whereas Miss Forsyth's particular skill is in the area of golf. The fact of the matter is that Miss Price has been judged by her Department head to be more versatile and of greater potential use for the future. Miss Forsyth was not letjgo because she was incompetent or ? because the college did not want her. She was let go because changes in the Department necessitated r. some readjustment: The serious drop in 2 Phys-Ed enrollment, the growing number-of men, and the increasing demand for versatile programing. All these adjustments were employed to save the Physical Education Department. ,3» LaDuca: What decisions were made in the Curriculum meetings concerning the entire* Phys-Ed issue? J; f mt * L |? jg ..Garvey:i The* Curriculum Committee reported ftol the Executive Council that they could reach no decision after six meetings. They reported that their entire deliberations concluded w ith no majority decision. LaDuca: Were Miss Forsyth and Miss Price given the chance to design a new* Phys-Ed program? g S ; | Garvey: They were given the chance, yes, but unfortunately the chance was given'to them too late. After all the J enrollments were in, it was discovered that not only were the old students not registering for Phys-Ed, but neither did the new ones. The program should have been changed prior* to registration which on our part was hind-sight rather than foresight...

The Relevancy of I Relevance f 1 True Confession: I laugh at "All In The Family" and have gotten so used to growing up with Lucy on TV that I just can't cut the cordial run the water while I .brush my teethJl use Tide. And two-ply toilet paper. Blue. With those little fleurs de lis on them. ^Because they match the motif of my bathroom. ' I enjoy blazing fires in my fireplace. The last movie I saw was "Lady and the Tramp," which exploits women. My bottles are nonreturnable and I don't separate?my garbage; which I burn in my blazing fireplace. I just can't help it. I'm a failure at relevance. There are, however, some things about which I am relevant. I don't have a snowmobile or a sable coat? But!that's about it. I read the wrong things (Nash, not Yevtushenko). I eat the wrong things (meat, not brown rice). I enjoy the wrong^ theatre (Neil Simon, not Albee). Sol what can I do?, I am a product of an educational system and a biodegradable environment that makes me feel I have to take the pleasure out of pleasure, the enjoyment out of .enjoying. The product of a guilt-ridden culture where free-love means I always have to say I'm sorry. I But what's so relevant* about relevancy anyway? ; A while fago, I visited the University of Wisconsin campus at Green Bay— a college totally devoted to the study of ecology. There one student told me, "It's okay, but you feel guilty doing anything that's not relevant." I thought Hhe remark 3 was ridiculous. After a day there, I found myself checking the soap in 5. the school lav soap dishes to Imake sure they werefusing the might Kind, f

So what is relevant? Bicycling? Good for the environment. Cuts down on air pollution. But I don't like*bicycling. Its not good for my psychological environment. And what is meaningful? It's the hey-day of the academic radical chic where f everything must have a Profound Meaning; where anything more than a pair of jeans and a stereo system borders on ^decadence; where back-to-earth means back-todearth. | Ecology, racism, f women's liberation, war and the rest of the list are all important issues. Too often, it seems that it's not the issues that are significant but only the relevance of the issues. We feel guilty if we're not doing what's Right, and we feel Wrong if we're not feeling the guilt. There are things—little and big—that can be enjoyed. For their own sakerAnd for no other reason. Too often the Relevance Regalia focues only on what's not there rather than what exists. For some people, perhaps, the patterns of smog formed from a dingy smoke stack might be aesthetically pleasing. That doesn't justify the polluting smog, but it creates a new and positive viewpoint where even the ugliness of pollution can have; its own beauty. *-•••-. * Truthfully, ijjhaven't? resolved my own guilt feelings about being m irrelevant. True jConfession: | In my city* The Lucy Show is one at the same time as the Evening News. So I sit near the color television—receiving radiation— and||constantly recycle the channels back and forth from one show to the other.| Last night, Lucy talked about the casualties in fViet^ Nam| whiles Walter m Cronkite put on a Charlie Chaplin costume and danced at*a|PTA meeting. It all evens out.*,

This farce deals with the improbable situation of an electrical blackout. A young artist (Randy^Byrd), is to show his sculpture to a rich but deaf German (Mark Zine), to impress his future father-in-law (Glen Gramagna). He borrows, without permission, antiques from his vacationing neighbor (Mike Weiss), who later makes a surprise arrival.

would like to see "more use of automation—librarianship has been a little slow in that.' At the Center the director would like to add more professional staff and see more cooperative work with area colleges in regard to exchanging materials. She plans on obtaining, as the funds become available, at least two more microfilm readers, machines for using art slides and film strips, a wireless system for listening to cassettes in' a console, and drapes for the lounge areas and periodicals floor. "Information specialist" seems an apt self-description of Mrs. Cooper, reference librarian. In line with assisting patrons with specific problems in research, she keeps I abreast with source material available at libraries and agencies in the area, community affairs, social issues, and new reference works as well as books currently being read by college students. Preferring the "human approach" to research, Mrs. Cooper enjoys most the reader's assistance aspect of her job, the teaching on an individualized basis. "I hope that the students would have learned a lot from me and because of me...and I've learned from them. Working with college students keeps you completely attuned—at least fifty years ahead. It makes a futurist of you." Mrs. Cooper is a staunch advocate of a "noisy library": "With people getting what they want, exchanging ideas, the decibel level must be higher than what it is sterotyped to be. The buzz of activity does not deter students who don't need quiet but there is a quiet place for people who do." She would also like to see the development of a recreational collection, involving contributions .of unwanted books from patrons, and a much greater use J of paperback materials, especially for topics of current ihterest. I f ISSB l Studying hotel management, and then English in undergraduate school, Mrs. Cooper was not attracted into .library


science until she began to work in a public library. She developed an interest in research through her husband's doctoral work. The changing image of the librarian, however, is beginning to capture the attention of more of the professional-minded, specifically men, she feels. More people are realizing that librarians are "people-oriented people concerned about everybody getting the most they can out of any media." Mrs. Sivulich. responsible for (he children's collection, describes a librarian as a "social worker, scholar, teacher, researcher, and public relations person.'' She finds that library work, especially reader's assistance, fosters a "greater appreciation of people, how fantastic they are. Half the time I would look at a subject in one way and talking with students would enable me to see things on so many different levels." In her view, a library, especially a college library, is a "cultural center" where people from all walks of life can go to "answer needs on a very personal basis."However, most people"do not really know what a library or a librarian can do for them." Mrs. Sivulich regrets that many students pass through college without ever using their library; its resources in material and people "could make a difference in their college (experience) and in their life." Concerning the children's section, this librarian has added to a rather scanty selection borrowing two collections on loan all year from the Pennsylvania State Library. Besides working in the library, Mrs. Sivulich teaches a course in children's literature and promotes the interdisciplinary action of this literature with other areas such as art, music, and creative drama. , M / A speech and drama major in college, Mrs. Sivulich became interested in a career as a children's librarian through teaching children in a remedial program. She had been unsatisfactorily involved in the behind-the-scenes aspect of radio and television, the type of work, she, at one time, felt would appeal to her. Sr. Martin, Mrs. Cooper, and Mrs. Sivulich are all members of the American Library Association. In addition. Sr.

Mrs. Cooper an information specialist Martin belongs to the Pennsylvania Library Association and serves as chairman of the Mercyhurst Library Committee. Mrs. Cooper is a member of an ad hoc committee tor library instruction of the Association of college and Research Libraries, the Mercyhurst Curriculum Committee, and of the committee involved in investigation Mercyhurst's role as a Christian college. Mrs. Sivulich serves on two committees for the American Library Association. Both Sr. Martin and Mrs. Sivulich hold degrees in library science from Rosary College, Mrs. Cooper from Long Island University. As archivest of the Learning Resources Center, Mr. Grinde catalogues, displays, and microfilms documents pertaining to the history of Erie. Also a history teacher at Mercyhurst, he considers the time between the Civil War and World War I a particularly fascinating period in Erie's history. This was the city's era of growth in population (including immigrants), wealth, and industry. Mr. Grinde also advertises the collection ' in historical and scholarly journals. He defines the archives as a "research center in which data of a historical or social science is stored." The collection includes "pictures, posters, old newspapers, and other forms of ephemera " While working on his graduate dissertation at the University of Delaware, Mr. Grinde handled thousands of manuscript items and became involved with the problems of organizing them. Through this experience, he developed an interest in theories
