The 'Rights' of Spring - Last week, the first day of the new season lived up to its name, as the temperature hit the 60's. These Sesler student residents took advantage of the super weather by participating in outdoor activities, such as lounging around outside listening to music, rapping and celebrating with a little brew' - just to be sociable, you understand. It was so peaceful, you couldn't even hear a Parade St. boulevard neighbor say anything. Eg I T**.

Activity Day May 16
by Vicki Martinago I MSG is initiating ia new tradition for the 'Hurst with'its special plans for an "Activity Day" to emphasize both social and learning experiences outside the college classroom. The event is planned for May 16 with a raindate set for May 18. The idea for? a "fun day" originated in the Baldwin dorm and MSG built on the suggestion in order to i provide a morale booster Jfor * the 'Hurst community. • "•< \ MSG .President Mike Heller presented a formal proposal concerning the "Activity Day" to Dean Millar and the division chairpersons, and it was unanimously' accepted. According to Heller, for the event to

succeed it needs the support of administration, faculty and students. He hopes to involve the various organizations within the college such as campus ministry, Egan scholars, PACE ami the yearbook staff. \ The tentative afternoon schedule for the "Activity Day" includes a blue grass band, ice cream social and bingo, along with athletic activities such as volleyball, backgammon and Softball tournaments. Plans are being arranged for an evening barbeque and an outdoor presentation of theRocky Horror Picture Show. The organized activities will be stretched out over the entire day beginning 1 with coffee and donuts in the morning, numerous afteroon activities and concluding with several night events.

J An example of a more academic learning experience during the day would involve faculty, administration or student demonstrations in a specific field ^of interest. MSG representatives will be contacting faculty members concerning possible special interest presentations while the officers will solicit the skill within the administration. \ "It's been set up for all to participate and to show that the 'Hurst is really a personal campus. We want to make this a tradition at the college," Heller stated. Posters and fliers with additional ^information will be J available in addition to a structured program of activities for the 'Hurst community in the upcoming weeks.

by Sue Fuss Over 150 prospective freshmen and their parents were on campus last Saturday for the first Presidential Scholarship Competition Day at the 'Hurst. A total of seven scholarships will be awarded based on the results of a two hour exam administered to the students. Two of these will be full tuition scholarships, three will be for $1,000 and two awarded for $500 According to College President Dr. Marion L. Shane, all the scholarships will be renewed yearly depending on the students maintaining academic excellence. * Dr. John Millar, dean of the college and • vice president of academic services, addressed the students and their parents before the test began, f "Completing the test*is not as important as taking n." 'Millar said, "(ioing to college is more important than graduating/' Along with the scholarship competition, many students were auditioning for the Creative Arts Scholarship. -^ ^ During the test, parents, and guests attended an informative program with presentations by Millar, Admissions Director Karen Schultz, Dr. Vivetta Petronio, director of the Egan Scholars Program, and Miriam Mashank, director of developmental education. Also speaking to the parents were Director of Student Services E. William Kennedy, George Kidd, vice president of business services, and Barry Zembower. the college's new financial* aid director.

campuses did not have sufficient opportunities for their creative expression or growth.." j Many scholars and leaders in the higher education fields feel that the small liberal arts colleges, such as Mercyhurst, can play a significant role in involving students in the arts experience. I'd say we have an obligation to do this. There has been a great need at our college for the development of a systematic, rational and fair approach to securing». and appropriating funds for the Arts Events here at Mercyhurst College. There is a need for an interested group of individuals to give continuity, order and organization to what appears to have been a haphazard approach to our cultural events and activities. . The proposal presented to our Student Government attempts to do this. Sincerely Joseph Pizzat, Chairman Creative Arts Division

Trends in enrollment figures in higher education - directly tied to population statistics - indicate a peak in undergraduate enrollment in 1982 and decline thereafter. ^ A 1978 AKPA study projected that the number of both undergraduate and graduate accounting degrees would increase at a higher rate than general enrollments through 1982 and would continue to show a steady growth trend at least through 1990 (the end point of the study.) What that means to institutions such as Mercyhurst is a ready market of individuals seeking a quality program to fulfill the educational requirements of their career objectives.

"Mercyhurst is making a real impact out there in the job market thanks to the enthusiastic participation of the co-op students," Longo added. "I'm impressed to see how fast the program has gotten off the ground.

Tour Psych
by W.D. "Bud" Prize \ The Laker tennis team has returned from its spring tour well prepared to defend the District 18 title it presently owns. i Although the team's recordwas 2-5, this statistic was deceptive. Three of the squads faced* by Mercyhurst were perennial powerhouses in Eastern tennis. Also, all the teams had played between ten and thirteen matches outdoors before the Blue and Green passed through. Added to the fact that the 'HurstP had to travel each day, these circumstances proved a high barrier for the men to climb. Wins and losses aside, many positive aspects were realized during the trip. "First, and most importantly, we got outside and acclimated to the sun and wind," Coach Dennis Ranalli said. This is especially important since the Lakers are the only District 18 team to have played outdoors so far this year. "Secondly, the doubles play improved significantly, as teams begin to gel," Ranalli pointed out, and added that the team "got used to pressure play and became match sharp." The trip began on a rough note with Mercyhurst losing a tight 5-4 decision to Citadel. Close matches once again proved their undoing - as either v of the two close singles losses would have turned the trick for the Lakers. The second day proved no better, as the College of Charleston bumped the 'Hurst for the second straight year, 7-2. Bright spots were Andy Findlay and Paul Spies at first doubles making a very strong performance - losing to the top team of Charleston 7-6,7-6 in one of the best played doubles matches of the trip. Also positive was the rise of Tom Chybrzynski's game - as he fired his way to an easy victory at number four singles, 7-5, 6-2. j i After a rainout at Coastal Carolina, the next stop was Presbyterian College - for a showdown with the team that tied the 'Hurst for eighth place at the national tournament last year. The bug of close losses bit again, as three hotly contested matches fell to the Blue Hose. Blue Hose? Phil Dubsky's third singles match became quite emotional when he called for a line judge, and a Presbyterian fan was sent down to preside. At 3-5 against Dubsky, a critical break point line call was contested, and a game Dubsky thought he had won was ruled deuce. Not to be denied, he saved several match points and won the game to bring the second set to 4-5 on his serve. His opponent came on strong, though, and won the next game to clinch the match 6-3, 6-4 and the team match 6-3 for Presbyterian. Spies scored his second win in three tries, disposing of his man easily at number six singles. Dave LaFuria came on strong, winning his first singles match 60 in the third set at number five. At 0-3, the 'Hurst turned to a very good High Point team, hungry for its first | victory. Findlay led a charge that spread through the team as he wiped out the opposition's number one man 6-1, 6-1. With the exception of LaFuria's loss at second singles and Paul and Steve Spies dropping a close one at third doubles, the Hilltoppers cleared the decks for a 7-2 win. Dubsky and Findlay won a at first doubles, eliminating a team which did well at the nationals last year. Ravinder Sabherwal garnered his first victory of the trip and earned himself the Chinese dinner he's been asking for. < The show moved to Atlantic Christian and then to Hampton for the two best teams of the tour. Atlantic placed second at Kansas City last year and dealt the Lakers an 8-1 loss. Most all of the matches were close, however, and quite encouraging for the team - especially Dubsky - who shot down his man at number four 6-3, 6-2. I Hampton Institute was also loaded, as they have won the NCAA Division II title two of the last? three years. This -time Dubsky and Findlay upset the first doubles team 6-1 in the third r set to salvage a point for Mercyhurst. v- I At George Mason University the travel-tired Lakers came out on top 9-0. The shutout was led by freshman Gary Dagan's first career singles victory - a 6-3, 6-2 win at sixth singles. « A match-tough Laker team will continue to smooth out wrinkles in preparation for the season opener, soon after Easter. Although the final line-up is not set, it is certain that the depth of the squad will afford Ranalli the opportunity to effectively substitute in case of any injuries. Road Trip Quotes Sabherwal: "How many Piggly Wigglys are there here?" Steve Spies: "Can we have cheeseburgers for breakfast, coach?" Sfc Gary Dagan, after his first collegiate win: "Big Ideal. The guy stunk!" H Andy Findlay, after facing nine imported players: "There's too many foreigners in these American colleges." ... i

Baseball Opener April
With college basketball finally completed and the spring months approaching, the 'Hurst baseball team is ready to begin. Having been cooped up inside for the better part of three months, Coach Mike Cusack and his young ball club got a chance to practice outside last week as temperatures warmed to 65 degrees. &§: The team has shown a vast improvement sover last year's squad which could only produce 12 victories in 32 contests. The team -^"rebuilding", according to Cusack - is loaded with freshmen < talent. The only regulars returning from last year's team are left fielder Frank Hudlac, shortstop Terry Kelly, third baseman Bob Delia Rocca and right fielder Rick Shaheen, who is sidelined with a broken thumb. Center fielder Joe Rocco and catcher Jim Hesse lead the freshmen crop which also consists of Dick White at second base, Andy Giachino at first, Jim Radeloff in right field, John Clark behind the plate, and Steve Niemic on the mound. f * =K Adding valuable depth to the team will be the experienced uoperclassmen Walt Romanoff and Ed Austins (outfielders who were ineligible in the fall), Ray Gruss (second base) and Ronnie Coleman (first base.) '-• i j The pitching staff, headed by sophomore flame throwers Russ Wilhelm and Rick Rickgauer, may very well decide the fate of the Lakers this year. The seven man staff, which also includes Craig Nicholson, Gordy Karstadt, "Sparky" Mills, George Kosko and Niemic, will be extremely busy throughout the thirty-four game season J which involves one stretch where the Lakers will play six games in three days (May 2,3,4.) The season opener is scheduled for April 3fat California State. The feeling about the team is one of optimism as things remain on an up note. The only problem the 'Hurst has involves the battle with Mother Nature - one battle they will never win.
