Chapel Tower I j To Be Lit

The tower of Christ the King Chapel and Old Main which is a landmark of the college will be illuminated by floodlights the end of this month. | The tower will be | lit by two floodlights which will be placed atop Weber Hall. ' 'It will be f visible all over southeast Erie," said Dr. William P. Garvey, president of JMercyhurst College. Floodlights will shine on the tower seven days a week from sundown until midnight, said Garvey. Approximately two 400 watt metal highlight bulbs will be used to accentuate the Mercyhurst landmark, according to Bill Ducz, director of maintenance.

Library Hours May Be Cut Back
By Fran Moavero rro The Mercyhurst Learning Resource Center hours may be cut back one-half hour from \ 11:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. because of the rising cost of electricity, said Dr. William; P. Garvey, president of Mercyhurst College. Few students use the library facilities during losing the library earlier, utility costs will be reduced," said Garvey. Attendance patterns will be closely examined during the next few weeks to determine if the LRC should close earlier. | "If the library is benefitting enough students, we will keep it open," stated Garvey. % "It is a waste of college money and student money for three or four students," he added. Joanne Cooper, director of the LRC, disagreed with Garvey's assertion and said that she has never witnessed only three or four people in the library. A significant ^number of students are in the library after 10:30, she explained. Cooper claims the LRC is used substantially ^Sunday through Thursday. \ "The library is not used significantly on Friday '"afternoons, and all day Saturday," she added. '. If any cutback in the hours is to be made, Cooper said that the hours should be cut on Friday or Saturday because these are the days when attendance is low. Cooper is aware of the attendance patterns because she said she takes a physical count of the students in the library at specific times. According to (Chuck Straub, operations manager of WMCY, the campus radio station, if the LRC hours are cut back, the broadcast hours of WMCY will also be curtailed by one-half hour. "We depend on access to the library for access to our studio area," he stated.

"Chicago City Limits", a comedy and improvisation troupe who visited Mercyhurst last week, performed "On The Subway" as one of several outrageously witty skits. £^.



College Asked To Share j Union Renovation Expenses
The Criminal Justice proposal introduced last week was discussed at the MSG meeting Wednesday. Bryan Doherty, criminal justice major, explained the procedure of the disciplinary committee. According to the proposal: **The role of the Disciplinary Committee is to hear the facts as they are presented and on the basis of these facts to make a judgment as to whether the student is guilty or not guilty of the charges brought against him." Further discussion concerning the proposal and its adoption will be brought up at the next MSG meeting. f Another topic of discussion concerned the proposed renovation of the Student Union. 4 Rich Lanzillo, president of MSG, said bids are being compiled for the project. j Currently, MSG is responsible for all Student Union expenses with the exception of S1,000 plus the Student5 Union director's salary which is contributed by the college. The government discussed the idea that the college share expenses with MSG for Student Union renovations. Mercyhurst College President, Dr. William P. Garvey, has been invited to attend the next MSG meeting to address this issue. In other business, Wydetta Carter was appointed MSG representative for the Communications department. According to the MSG constitution, in the event of a resignation, the position is awarded to the runner-up in the election. Former Communications rep Carla Anderson resigned her position last spring after la potential conflict of interest was cited with her position as Merdad Assistant Editor. > Gina Frisina, MSG treasurer, said check cashing is available to students Monday through Thursday from 1 -3 p.m. and on Fridays from 124 p.m.

Dean Assistant Named
By Karen Merkle Sister Marcia McDonald has returned to Mercyhurst College after a 12-year absence as the new assistant to Dean David Palmer. From£1957 to 1970, Sr. Marcia served as the Mercyhurst Director of Admissions, and for all but the last two years of that time she was also the college Registrar. Upon leaving in 1970, she went to Washington, D.C., where she worked as the director of administration with the National Catholic Research Organization and later with two private consultants involved in developing programs for .third world countries. In 1978 she returned to Erie as the director of development at Prep High School, and remained there until last spring. Sr. Marcia was one of two who applied for the position, and Dean Palmer said he is pleased with his choice. "She's excellent at the job because of her experience here," he said. He added that most of Sr. Marcia's duties as his assistant will include academic research, work on scheduling, and helping with records of other offices that report to the dean, such as Adult College and the Corry Enrichment Center. Sr. Marcia, a graduate of Mercyhurst College and the University

One Week Left i \ \ Rename Apartments
There is only one week remaining in the contest to rename the "Sesler" Apartments. The entries have been minimal 10 far, so everyone is greatly encouraged to enter the contest. Remember, there are three $50.00 prizes up for grabs. To update the reason for and rules of the contest, the main ojective. is to come up with three separate names for the former Sesler Apartments on the west end of the campus. When Mercyhurst purchased the apartments from the Sesler Real Estate Agency last January, they retained: the tags, "Sesler-1, 2, and 3" and were not given newer, more, appropriate names. The Merciad is now sponsor* ing a contest in which all members of the'college community may enter. Three $50.00 awards will be given to whomever submits the best names and reasoning behind each name choice. Hie winning names will-* be selected by a committee composed of representative members of the college, 1 If there is an insufficient number of entries, the contest may have to be cancelled. There is no limit to the number of entries submitted by students, faculty, administrators, and Sisters of Mercy. Along with each entry, contestants should include a written explanation describing why that-particular name was chosen. The contest deadline is Friday, October 15, at 5:00 p.m. Entries should be placed in an envelope and should include a name, address, and telephone number. They can either be mailed to Box. 57, Preston, or taken to The Merdad office, 307 Old Main* : *; Good Luck!







Sr. Marcia McDonald of Pittsburgh, said she is happy to be back here, where she has spent most of her professional life. "It's really not new - all the work I'm doing is something I've done before," she said. "I'm just eager to :get acquainted with the faculty, staff, and students and get into it . . . to really become part of things again." Sr. Marcia added that the greatest changes on campus since her" departure are * "only the changes that come with time?' She sees the addition of men at Mercyhurst as "a good thing."

An Incongruity Brought To Light
After only one month of classes, the Mercyhurst College administration has determined that the Learning Resource Center hours may be cut back due to a lack of students using the LRC facilities and rising energy costs. At face value, this set of reasons is completely valid. However, when this rationale is examined more closely, something is definitely wrong. Namely, its timing. First of all, it is a bit early in the term to be taking head counts of students in the LRC between 10:30 and 11:00 p.m. For the average student in the average class, the workload of reading, tests, and research paper deadlines is just beginning to mount now. It is only logical that during the first few weeks of the term, the library attendance, especially late at night, will not be record-breaking. T Second, the timing of the publicized concern for the high energy costs in lighting the LRC could not be more out of sync with another recent administrative decision: the lighting of the Mercyhurst Tower. Although only two floodlights will be used to illuminate the east end of Old Main and the cost may not be comparable to that of lighting the library for an additional half-hour, energy costs are energy costs. If the administration maintains that now is the time to be more thrifty in college energy use, then now is not the time to undertake a project which will cost the college money to initiate, plus money for monthly kilowatt expenditures. In reality, lighting the tower and curtailing the LRC hours may be spheres apart, but what matters here is how the college community perceives those actions side-by-side. A prevalent perception would be that the college image matters more than the education of its students. The issue of the library hours itself deserves some further comment. In the past two years, the closing times have stretched from 11:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. to midnight and back to 11:00 p.m., depending on student and/or administrative urgings. Now, with the probable adoption of a 10:30 shut-down, the late night, library yo-yo pattern continues. At a college where academic distinction is stressed, the hours of the campus library should parallel that goal and extend until 11:00 p.m., or better yet, midnight in order to meet student needs both now and in the days and weeks ahead.

Dr. Michael J. McQuiUen Is there a ''dense pack" in your future? There will be if the Reagan administration* has its way. What is "dense pack"? Some might think it is the name for a new type of concentrated six-pack; others might feel the term applies to a gathering of side" economists. But for the President and his advisors, "dense pack" refers to the latest scheme for basing the MX missile- that poor nuclear orphan born in the Ford-Carter years but still without a proper home. Not "that the Reagan Administration is unwilling to pay - and pay handsomely - - if a suitable home can be found. Indeed, anywhere from»; $30-50 billion and up is available to the builder of an acceptable shelter. There's only one catch. It seems the Soviets are determined to destroy the MX and any home that is built for it, so the Reagan people are looking for assurances that the MX's new home can escape swift and total destruction. The Carter Administration, after studying over a hundred different plans, opted for a com-


plicated mobile home system known as the "race track." Two hundred MX's would move about on an oval track shuttling back and forth between 23 different shelters each. (The 9,200 warheads the Soviets would have to expand in order to ^destroy these 4,600 possible shelters would "soak up" virtually their n entire nuclear,, arsenal by the mid-1980). * However, when western ranchers and * sheepmen loudly objected to their proposed new neighbor and a host of other critics raised various objections to this scheme, then-candidate Reagan in the 1980 election campaign branded the Carter iplan "idiotic" (which it was). Don't get Ronald \wrong. He most certainly wants the MX; he just has to figure out where to put it. Having ruled lout the option that most experts saw as the most feasible ("race track" plus SALT II), President Reagan has found himself sorely pressed to come up with an acceptable alternative. Congress has stated that it will not approve funds for the MX unless Reagan comes up with a^survivable home by December 1.

Dr. Michael J. McQuiUen S e c r e t a r y of D e f e n s e Weinberger has pushed for giving the MX a home in the sky - flying it around in a fleet of new planes able to stay aloft? for days at a time. The Air Force considers Weinberger's "Big Bird" solution to be as childish as its name. Others suggest hiding the MXs in huge tractor trailers that would wander about our interstate highway system. It now appears the President will propose that

the missiles be "closely packed" together in? underground silos somewhere in the Southwest. The idea here is that, if the Soviets try to attack'"dense pack", the first exploding warheads will destroy later incoming warheads (called the "fratricide effect"), thus ensuring that most of the MXs will survive. No matter that the experts have 'noted"all manner of ways in which the Soviets could circumvent^ this problem (*' pindown" strikes, laying delayed action "nuclear mines", etc.). The MX must have a home and this home will have to do. • Why, you might ask, do we need the MX anyway? Simply put, the MX is designed to destroy the homes of Soviet missiles - and we do not have enough such missiles in our current arsenal to suit the tastes of Reagan and his advisors. The Soviets can threaten the homes of our missiles so we need the MX in order to threaten the homes of their missiles.

It is bad enough that the President is obsessed with what I con* aider an unrealistic threat (a surprise Soviet "first-strike" on our land-based missiles); it is even worse that he is determined to waste billions of dollars on a solution that is both unworkable and dangerous. The President's proposal will prove to be a setback for arms control efforts and will lead to a new escalation of the arms race. jNot only should "dense pack" be rejected, but Congress should act as well to cancel the entire MX program. It may be too cynical and harsh to argue that the Reagan Administration seems far more troubled by and has devoted far more attention to the problem of the homeless MX than it has to the problem of homeless Americans. But then again, maybe it isn't. f
Dr. Michael J. McQuiUen is an Associate Professor of History at Mercy hurst College.

Movie Review

Amityville II Is A Real Zero
v by Pa trick Cannon Before really; getting into my review of the latest haunted house horror Him to invade Erie, I wish to recall for the reader two important and successful movie years 11979 and 1982. Back in the summer of '79 a highly publicized scis released entitled Star * Trek-The Motion Picture. Being an enthusiastic trekie, I eagerly bought a ticket for the show, only to wish later that I hadn't bothered. Those of you who can remember this box office flop, need not be reminded of the writer's ineptitude at creating an interesting sci-fi drama. Later that summer another highly publicized film entitled The Amityville Horror, a \ cinematic adaptation of the novel by the same title came to town. With great personal acclaim for the novel, I went to the theatre with high expectations, only'to find : that this film tied rDawn of the Dead (something which may have seemed impossible) for the worst horror film of the year. Nineteen seventy-nine, which was an uncommonly^ good year for Hollywood, was laced with two very disappointing duds. Now, we come to the summer of'82. In June audiences saw the return of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock In Star Trek II - The Wrath of Kahn. I bought a ticket early for this production with bold confidence; feeling that Hollywood would learn from its past mistakes and not give the world two boring and bad Star Trek movies. My confidence paid off. Star Trek II was a success both, commercially and critically. Its characters, unlike the first, were well developed, and its story, with a few kinks, was interesting. With this pleasant surprise in mind, I eagerly bought a ticket for Amityville II; hoping that, as with Star Trek, Hollywood would learn from the past, analyze the first script, and not give moviegoers two bad Amityville movies. This ; time, Hollywood betrayed my confidence. In Amityville'II, an innocent, unsuspecting Catholic family moves«into a demon-possessed house in an upper-class neighborhood in Long Island. Sonny., Montivelli, the family's oldest son, is slowly brought under demon control, after hearing mysterious deep voices on his stereo head set. These voices compel. Sonny to destroy his entire family. Amityville II is trying to be a cinematic depiction of the November 1974 Montivelli family murders (a true story) which was committed by a possessed and insane family member. What the film ends up being is an endless procession of second-hand ideas and gimmicks (and I thought Bladerunner was the year's number one copycat film). Some examples of borrowed gimmicks are: flying household debris, straight out of Poltergiest tidal waves of blood that flow from underneath doors, that I recall in The Shining; a transformation of Sonny's head late in the film, resembling a scene from The Beast Within; and, most obvious of all, the words SAVE ME mysteriously appearing on Sonny's arm, directly from a

scene in The Exorcist. Also, like (The Exorcist, the invisible demons get their jollies from attacking religious objects. We see no bleeding statues in Amityville II. However, we do see the dismayed look on the family priest's face who after a nighttime visit with the Montivelli's returns to his car only to find that his Bibles have been reduced to r confetti. *& The film's only real strength is its exquisite camera direction. The camera is dollied out from within the mysterious dark room and leads the viewer up the stairs, symbolic of evil spirits coming out from Hades to haunt the innocent family. The camera work makes this scene especially creepy to watch. ,5. That same skillful camera direction makes Sonny's first night home alone in the haunted mansion seem like a real nightmare. The persistent high angle shots from different directions give the audience the fearful feeling of being alone in a haunted house with spirits, always invisible, looking down from all directions. Despite all the excellent camera direction, Amityville II doesn't earn my recommendation. This is not only due to its use of unoriginal ideas, but also its repelling taste of showing little children, the younger Montivellis, being gunned down by .the possessed Sonny on camera. Not even a good camera work can make up for such revulsion. In my opinion Amityville II is a real Zero.

Conference Center Director Named

Mercyhurst College really believes in its graduates, and to prove this is true, many alumni are hired. This is the case for the new Conference Center Director, Conine Halperin. J? A graduate of 1980, Halperin is pleased at the chance to be working with the college. "I love the college," she said, "It feels like coming home. 1 really do feel that I've always been a part of the college in one way or another." The move back to the 'Hurst was a logical step;for'Halperin when the position in the Conference Center opened up. "It (her new position) draws on

my background in my YWCA work," where* she explained, the was planning workshops and conferences. Also, she admits she had "a desire to be part of the college." f As the Director, Halperin is currently working with the "Good Morning World" Breakfasts, and planning workshops and seminars for Spring. While Halperin likes the atmosphere and facilities at Mercyhurst, someday she would like to see a separate facility for the Conference Center. She explained this would, ^"better serve the needs of the community and college both." | But right now, Halperin is satisfied with where she is, and said, "I would like to stay at the college. I really like it here, and I'd like to grow while I'm here," she adds, "Not necessarily up."

Advisory Committee Established For LRC
A Learning .Resource Center Advisory Committee has been established by the Mercyhurst Senate to study LRC needs. An Ad Hoc Committee, it will serve as a liason between the LRC and the Mercyhurst Community. The< group will report to the Academic Policy Committee, a standing committee of the Senate. According to Joy Kolb, Senate President, the committee ^was formed "in response to some of the comments in the Middle States reports." "It will be a place to coordinate different concerns for Media Sevices and the LRC," Kolb said. Members are: Dr. James Heaney, assistant professor of Special Education; Peter Benekos, director of Criminal Justice; Dr. Robert Maxham, assistant professor of Music; Dr. George Garrelts, associate professor of Theology, i Also, Richard J. Kubiak, professor of History; Dr. Paul A. Edwards, associate professor of Chemistry; and Chris Crawford, an Elementary Education major. The group will be rounded out with the director of the LRC and the chairperson of the Academic Policy Committee. The appointment letters will go out to these people next week, Kolb said, after Senate committee chairpersons are selected. These people volunteered for the position or were asked, at the suggestion of Joan Cooper, LRC director. They represent a number of special interests, Kolb said, ranging from computers to the archives to graduate programs. Although the committee will have no official power, it will be able to use Senate influence to air their suggestions. This should provide "a more concerted program" for the LRC, Kolb said. complishment and the promise for special leadership. Mary Catherine Lieb, a 1942 graduate of Mercyhurst, died this past summer, leaving a scholarship available for upperclass business students. She received her degree at Mercyhurst in Commercial Business.* 1 Lieb was active at the college since her graduation, and was President of The Alumni Association (a national organization) for six years, j The 1982-83 recipient of the Mary Catherine Lieb Scholarship was senior, Patrick Paparelli.

Student Handbook Compiled
By Lynn Pope In January, a student handbook will make its first appearance on the Mercyhurst campus. Paul Urbanowicz, an administrative Intern,J is compiling the handbook under the direction of John T. Nesbit, assistant to the president. The handbook will contaiom academic standards and dorm living to how to obtain a parking sticker. Nesbit characterized the handbook as a, "codified collection of rules and regulations to govern students." The handbook will not only pertain to residential students, but to all Mercyhurst students. i i b "It is an effort on our part to keep the student better informed about Mercy hurst's responsibilities to Mercyhurst," said Nesbit. * At the present time, if a student has a question concerning a school policy, he has to go to a specific person or office to obtain an answer. Even then, he or she may not get a satisfactory answer. The handbook, slated for distribution around January, is meant to give the student an immediate and informative answer without the- "runaround," explained Nesbit. Paul Urbanowicz, a 1981 graduate of Mercyhurst, said that the work on the handbook is going very well, but he stressed the fact that student input is essential. Urbanowicz stated that students who have questions or concerns about the student handbook should send him a short note in Main 210 by the end of October.
