MARCH 3, 1978

by Terry Kelly It all began back in November when basketball t teams are shaped and molded into what would hope to be a good season. There are a lot of teams that have mediocre seasons and many that have poor ones but there are few who achieve the ultimate successful year. * \ For the Mercyhurst Lakers, the word success has been thrown around Erie about as much as the weather condition or local politics. "|-. Last November Coach Dick Fox predicted that his team would jj lose \ no more than six games and up until this point he has been correct. With the district playoffs just around the corner, Fox has his | Lakers working out for the possible trip : to Kansas City. As the all important opening round starts Monday, let's take a look back over the season and see what the fans will be talking about for awhile. In early November the Lakers traveled to Canada to capture the Wilfred-Laurier tourney and opened the season with a big win at Edinboro over the Scots. They then dedicated their own center with a tournament, which they also won. f ^ f Following his thrash of wins, they reeled offwins over Clarion, Wheeling, Pitt-Johnstown, and fi Dyke before losing to Westminster by two in overtime. Their second winning streak thus followed and saw Point


Park, Geneva, St. Vincent, PittJohnstown again, i Edinboro again, inja commanding 103-73 win. Eisenhower, Buffalo State, Gannon, LaRoche, Central State, and Behrend all came before Point Park evened the series with the Lakers' second loss. They

closed out the season with wins over Alliance, Central State again and Robert Morris. % The whole season will unfold Monday night like a story book. The tremendous season will all be. history and the fate of the Lakers' future will be on the line.


Still Plays Basketball
Remember Jesse Campbell? The name is as immortal to Laker basketball as John Wayne is to westerns. In his four years (1972-76) as center on the Laker squad, the? all-American set records for everythingfrommost points scored (1750) to rebounds (1370) to f most • personal! fouls (314). *f I jg Campbell was spotted by David Thomas, associate professor of earth science, ati! the Buffalo airport 'last Saturday night. Thomas I was returning to Erie from a conference he attended on international studies;, in Washington, D. C. ^ He said Campbell told him he has been playing basketball for a beer company in Istanbul, Turkey, for the last eight months. He [had played Jin Holland last year and was presently enroute to Michigan, his • home 'state, where he plans to apply for employment in the area dealing with probation and parole. I He said he will return to basketball, Ithis jjtime concentrating on playing somewhere in France, if the job plans are not met. * *


Hurst's" Homestead Project Is In Planning Stages Now
by Lisa Manendo f The Homestead Project, a four credit interdisciplinary course offered this spring, is a fine example of offering students not only book knowledge but valuable experience. ^ This is so because the Homestead Project will give students an opportunity to design and build an ecologically -integrated homestead. According to Dr. Alan Lewis, assistant professor of biology, who with Dr. ^Wolfgang Christian, assistant professor of physics, will instruct the course, the trend today is more people migrating from the city back to the country. * With the Homestead Project, students by instruction and experience, will learn how to survive in the country - *how to provide as much on their own as possible. The purpose of Project Homestead Is "to show "con* fidence in all of us that, yes, there is information out there that we can put together * to have an ecological homestead," stated Dr. Lewis. An ecologically sound homestead, i*, explains -. Dr. Lewis, "is reached when an area, in this case a homestead, produces its own energy its own , food, provides a cash flow and recycles its own waste." During this course, Dr.| Christian will head energy production - the examination of wind and solar energy. Dr. Lewis will be in charge of the building andj planning of the house and also plan food production. The course offered in the spring will deal mainly with the design and planning of the Homestead. Part two of the course, offered most likely in the fall, will deal with the actual building of the Homestead. Presently, the instructors are planning to construct the house behind the apple orchard here at Mercyhurst. j* "However," Dr. Lewis states, "the first step is to come up with the design plans, then getting permission from the Sisters of Mercy to use the area behind the apple orchard and then receiving a building permit." Also, another factor to be considered, explains Dr. Lewis, is funding. He is hopeful that through donations and funding the house can be constructed. The goal of the Homestead Project, which is a brainchild of Dr. Lewis and Mr. Daniel O'Connor, instructor in environmental studies, is to form a non-wasteful system. Dr. Lewis feels that it is important that the Homestead Project become a reality so people wUl be able to provide their own needs.

With the extinction of the Koehler beer dynasty, so was the end of a landmark that has been with Erie residents since 1847. rf Koehler's significance to Mercyhurst is that the company sponsored a yearly outing for the seniors in the form of a beer blast. & if * Although I'm not an avid supporter of Koehler beer, I was looking forward to having a couple beers at Koehler's Rathskeller. Randy Mink says, "Maybe we can gather some seniors together, jjhead to Lawrenceville in Pittsburgh, and drink some beers at the Pittsburgh Brewing Company, makers of Iron City Beer." 'f But still, it is a shame that the brewery couldn't have been saved. As one of the last family breweries in the U.S., Koehler may not be remembered as putting out a first class beer, but at least some of their commercials will be rememv bered. ' 5*

He was the bouncer who always had a beer in his hand. l . . . News writer John Bruno and I met briefly with President of the College, Marion L. Shane. Dr. Shane's efforts as an educator can be felt around the institution but I doubt if any of us can appreciate the work he's done. Recently, for example, Dr. Shane accepted the highest position of the Conference of Small Private Colleges, on Monday, February 26, in Washington, DC. Besides belonging to the CSPC, Dr. Shane is on the executive committees of the Commission of Independent Colleges and Universities, the Foundation for Independent Colleges of Pennsylvania, and the Northwestern Pennsylvania Planning Council for Higher Education, Regions 9-10. He is also a member on the board of directors for the Erie Conference, a member of the Erie Chamber of Commerce, United Way, a former director of WQLN, and an incorporator of Saint Vincent Health Center. , ; ; . . . 1,000 tickets are on sale for the N.A.I.A. District 18 play-offs to be held]at the Mercyhurst Campus Center. Tickets are $2.50 for adults and $1.50 for students. The reason Mercyhurst students will be charged has to do with the cost of running the tournament.

To The Editor: Students of this college: YOU are being laughed at by an entire city and the college down on Perry Square. The support that you gave to the basketball team on Feb. 21 against Alliance College was extremely shameful, and disappointing to a team that has compiled 22 victories and a scant 2 losses, by only three points. Not only does it show that very few people on this campus have enough respect to go and PAGE 2 THE MERCIAD MARCH 3.1978 support their team, but it also negates all the hard work by the team coach, school and the little people who have worked so hard to build what has come about this season.

But this is only one purpose. The main reason for it is to give a college student a chance to spend a weekend away with some great people and to have someone around with whom they might discuss their future plans or anything else they want to talk about;. Any young men who are just plain curious about what goes on in a seminary are welcome. The format for the weekend is very loose and yet there are to be some unusual planned activities. Be assured it is not in any way designed to sell vocations to the priesthood, but is intended to help clarify * vocations to Christianity.

"No", said Sr. Joseph Mary Kosarsky, R.N., R.S.M., chief health practitioner at Mercyhurst. ' n According to Sr. Kosarsky, the major complaint of 99 per cent of the patients was a severe sore throat resulting!in difficulty in swallowing. \ \ Sr. Kosarsky pointed out that those students who recieved flu shots in October responded more quickly to the medication^being provided, which was Robicillen. Sr. Kosarsky also pointed out that those students who did have the Russian Flu were told to force fluids, get plenty of rest, were given an analgesic to relieve the aches and pains which accompany the flu and were given Robicillen in an effort to combat respiratory infection. As of this week, the health office was happy to report that the number of patients was down from the previous week at 23 per day. " % I I "Symptoms of the Russian Flu, described by Sr. Kosarsky were D a severe headache, - 2) • sore . throat and 3) a lack of appetite. In fighting upper respiratory ailments, Sr. Kosarsky said that r the Robicillen is the best in combating infection because of the advantage of how many times 4 it's :, taken daily.
