Diocese Says No To Purchase Offer
By Janlne Adolphson fcSjIn 1983, Mercyhurst College expanded its facilities to include the St. Mark's Seminary Complex. This was made possible with a five year lease agreement between Mercyhurst and the Diocese o f Erie. ^ Now in the-fourth year o f its five year lease, Mercyhurst must decide on renewing the current lease or relocating its School of Music, Hotel-Restaurant Management Department and Mercyhurst Career Institute since plans to purchase St. Mark's Seminary have fallen through. The Diocese, after much deliberation, has decided not to accept Mercyhurst's proposal o f $2 million for St. Mark's Seminary. £ [ "Money was not the main consideration in the negotiation,** said Frank Hakel, Administrative Coordinator for the Diocese. .Selling the building would mean having to find and acquire alternative accomodations for the Seminary Formation Program.

In Egan Speaker Series
' On Oct. 28, 1986, the Egan Scholars' program will be presenting John Nee, who will be giving a seminar entitled "Coupon Fraud: Who Gets Clipped? Nee teaches Criminal Justice here at Mercyhurst and originally did a paper on commercial counterfeiting which was published late last year. The paper discussed the counterfeit duplicating of such popular and expensive items as Izod polo shirts and Gucci watches and bags. The paper was presented to the Academy of Criminal Justice. After the paper's completion, Nee discovered the enormity of coupon fraud that occurred in this

•I
country, and that encouraged him to write another paper. In large cities such as Detroit, Chicago, Miami and New York, millions of dollars in coupon fraud occur every year. Nee believes t hat J the middle Eastern criminals are controlling the racket. Coupon fraud has many faces. It can be anything from printing phony coupons yourself to the store's own cashiers slipping coupons into their cash drawers and keeping the money reimbursed from the coupons. Nee's coupon fraud paper will be published in the December 1986 issue of the "Journal of Security Administration." * The seminar he has planned for the Mercyhurst community will try to show the enormity of coupon fraud as well as who's involved. Nee wishes to "expose to a very active criminal activity of which few are aware." Currently, Nee is working on a paper dealing with product diversion. His knowledge of the various types of white collar crime is as diverse as his background in others forms of crime. i All are welcome and invited to the seminar which will be held in the * faculty dining & room. The presentation will begin at 4:30 p.m.

Biology & Geology Students Skip Lab & Go To The Site*
By Betsy Lante When Columbus v discovered Jamaica on May 5, 1494, his first landfall was St* Ann's Bay, 'a stunning white sandy shore on the island's north coast, where, he received a hostile welcome from Arawak Indians. This Dec. 5, as a group of Mercyhurst .science students also discover Jamaica, their reception at St. Ann's Bay will be more hospitable. They will arrive at the Hofstra University Marine Laboratory, a hands-on learning center devoted exclusively to the needs of professors and students from the U.S. and Canada. These students will be earning "the hardest credits they will ever love to get,'* according to geology professor Dr. Raymond Buyce, as they spend ten days performing lab and field exercises in the tropics. Buyce, who will be instructing Modern and'Ancient Carbonate Depositional Environments, will share his professorial duties in the Caribbean with biology professor Dr. Diane Dudzinski, who will instruct in the area of her specialty, Tropical Marine Biology. Both three-credit courses are open to Mercyhurst science majors, as well as non-majors to be admitted at the professors' discretion. The Hofstra lab is an ideal location for the instruction of these courses, Dudzinski commented, because "St. Ann's Bay is protected by a natural bank-barrier reef aboundingk in diverse communities of corals, tropical fish and sunken ships. Other environments to be explored include lagoons, •'"••V srass beds.

Kelly stated that he would look into the issue and get back to them next week. Another need mentioned at the meeting was*for more machines that sell washing machine tickets.

"The island ,\tself has an incredible array of geological features," Buyce added "Observing living reefs offshore will help us to understand those fossilized and uplifted on the land." "The ancient coral reefs are the accumulated remains of creatures with carbonate skeletons that lived millions of years ago," he continued. "They were lifted above sea level with the entire island of Jamaica as other nearby parts of the earth's crust plunged downward,, forming an ocean trench several miles deep between Jamaica and its northern neighbor, Cuba." "These carbonate rocks are important both* academically, * in developing an understanding of howjj the world formed, and economically, because similar rocks in other parts of the world supply much of our oil and gas," Buyce. concluded. Geology students will also examine volcanic rock deposits, cave terrains and a local bauxite mine. Biology students, on the other hand, will focus on the ecology of marine life^forms. In doing so, Dudzinski hopes "they will gain an appreciation for the diversity of species in tropical regions, where man's intrusion has greatly accelerated the extinction rate." Both,, professors feel their students will, benefit from san overlapping of the two courses. Geologists will study the distribution of biological organisms in order to understand ancient carbonate rock deposits. * In* turn/ biologists will .join in the geological examination of fossil

reefs, in 'which the course of 'evolution has been preserve; Much of; the fieldwork will involve snorkeling, and certified SCUBA divers will have the opportunity to take a deeper look into things. The group will also visit tourist attractions such as Drax Hall Beach (location for the filming Of "Return to Treasure Island"), the resort city Ocho Rios, the Botanical Gardens, and Dunn's River Falls (a fresh water cascade descending 600 feet to the open sea), Dudzinski said. Dudzinski, who has taken two 'groups of marine biology students to Jamaica in the past two years, has also studied marine biology at Nassau in the Bahamas and at the Bermuda Biological Station. This will be a first visit to Jamaica for Buyce, although he instructed a geology course two years ago in the Virgin Islands. Having studied carbonate rock deposits throughout much of the U.S. and in the Red Sea, he is currently studying references on Jamaican geology. "I hope to become certified for SCUBA diving before the trip," Buyce added. Students interested * in either course must submit a $50 deposit by Oct. 31. Dudzinski estimates costs for all transportation, room and board, lab use and field trips at $870, with tuition an additional expense. BuyceJ summarized the significance of the * upcoming adventure, "It's a chance for our students to live the science, to become immersed in what it is like to actually *do' what one has' studied for years-on-end academically."

Hurst Senior Does Research For D.O.E
Stay was to study the cycling of lipids in bluegill fish J Her assignment concentrated mainly on Pond Sea, consisting 1. Of the land in S.C. on which the federal government took over for a testing site. The task for DiFonzo was to determine how blugills survived in the pond when the nuclear reactor was operating. The nuclear reactor increased the water temperature to 110 degrees but never with fish." DiFonzo had an advisor to report to, but all of the research completed was her own. However, for her first week, DiFonzo had a different advisor in which she had to hatch 100 alligator eggs herself. DiFonzo was evaluated by her advisor and the results were sent to Oak Ridge and Mercyhurst's Biology Dept. She was informed of her evaluations and her research will be submitted in an Oak Ridge research paper. ^* "Not everyone had results," she said, "but, I had results and enough of them to present," she continued.

This past summer, Mercy hurst senior, Chris DiFonzo seized the opportunity to complete some work for the Student Research program which is federally sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Research. DiFonzo, a biology major, English-chemistry minor, applied to Oak Ridge Associated Universities, in Tennessee, and was one ot 74 students who got accepted. She met the qualifications of completing her junior year and sent recommendations along with her transcript to be reviewed. 1 There's a lot of applicants," DiFonzo stated. "You're lucky if you can get in." i She worked for Oak Ridge University at the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory, a federal nuclear power site, in Aiken, S.C. DiPonzo's project for her 10 week

DiFonzo found that thefish hid in dark places and used their fat to survive because all its food was terminated. Since the reactors were shut down during her stay, DiFonzo, every week, caught some fish and through a grinding process, she tried to see a rate of fat build up in the fish. And, she

Campaign '86 Continued
In last week's Merciad we saw some of the qualifications of gubernatorial candidates Bob Casey and William Scranton. This week, due to the fact that slightly less publicity has been given to the senate race, we will focus on the candidates in that competition. This campaign pits the 56-yearold Republican incumbent Arlen Specter against the Democratic entry of Bob Edgar, 43, a congressman whom the party hopes will "Forge a new future." j Specter is running on the strength of his past record, making very few new campaign promises. Some of the items Specter claims which are relevent to the college vote: Specter Introduced the Unfair Foreign Competition Act, which would allow' American firms to obtain court injunctions to stop illegal imports, which harm vital 1 domestic industries. * . Specter has been a consistent | supporter of full funding for the Guaranteed Student Loan (GSL) program, Pell Grants, vocational education grants and increased financial aid for higher education students. Specter is also a supporter of the Superfund toxic waste cleanup program and has taken a lead on Pennsylvania environmental issues, such as the problem of leaks in underground storage tanks. These leaks threaten the drinking supplies of many of our state's communities. He also won passage of the Pennsylvania Wilderness Act, which protects over 30,000 acres of state forest for recreation or preservation recession, such as Northwest Pennsylvania. Edgar targets as some of his goals to improve Pennsylvania's economic standing, develop better relations between labor, management, and government and to rehabilitate the state's roads, bridges, tunnels and rails using Pennsylvania steel, thereby helping the ailing steel industry, while at the same time improving the routes used to transport business materials.

by Brian Sheridan Nothing could be more detrimental to Mercyhurst's recruitment than not renewing our lease at St. Mark's. The reputation of the D'Angelo Music School and the HRM program have lured many students from far away places to enroll here. To replace the special, extensive facilities will be costly to Mercy hurst and to the individual programs situated there. £ There can be much foresight in hindsight and to say that the dioseses would have eventually become upset with our needing so much space in the complex would be unfair. The time Mercyhurst has spent at St. Mark's has helped those programs to grow and, in effect, helped cause the programs' outstripping the physical limits of the building. So now the college is faced with an sticky situation. If we are to continue to compete with othei schools, we definitely need to expand. The time it would take to add on to existing strutures or build new buildings might hurt the 'Hurst's recruitment of freshman in the coming years. Bringing some of the classes now held at St. Mark's back to the main campus might be beneficial to some though. How many of us had to orave Erie's bitter winter weather to walk up the hill to get to a class. I jhave heard many complaints over the past four years about having to travel to St. Mark's from students who didn't have transportation. Some students even have not taken advantage of the fine programs offered "on the bigger hill" for that reason. J 4 Also, there is the sense of identity. Being up on the hill at St. Mark's has always seem to have separated those programs from others, like they were better than others. Students who have taken mainly classes at St. Mark's probably feel as if they are being alienated from the main campus. Everyone does their best to bridge that identity gap but the actual distance between the buildings cannot be always nullified. In this case, as in so many others, physical distance shrivels compared to emotional distance V An unfortuate result, however, of building anew building is that not wil^frfagejy^nsive but it will shrink the amount of natural hind' 11 scape oni ourTcampu's !' X^Tror'cnfvtzmtoir'tias been p — - n^i hmrr; been destroying the natural enviroment. One of the best things about our campus is that we have an enviroment removed from the setting In which it exists. All around there is the concrete of the city but our camr pus, for the most part* has remained' untainted. We need to expand though and I'm sure if the decision to build does occur, it won't be done at the expense of the beauty of our campus. J I understand the Diocese's position for emotion and history are an important of every culture.'I, however, cannbt see why their needs couldn't be met just as well in some other location. Having the entire St. Mark's Center would benifit many students for many, many years to come. -t r-

St. Mark's - A Vital Part Of The * Hurst In Many Ways

MSG Slates Series Of 'Major' Lectures
by* Micheal Kelley, MSG President i Next Thursday, Oct. 30, a T.V. star whom many of you will recognize instantly will be appearing on the Mercyhurst Campus. Larry Linvilie, former star of the T.V. series "MASH" and other shows like "Grandpa Goes to Washington." will be speaking on his days as "Majoi Frank Burns" and more. Linville is a guest of Mercyhurst Student Government and will be appearing at Zurn Hall at 8:30 p.m. This provides an excellent opportunity to ask some of the questions that you always wanted to ask concerning working with Alan Alda or Jack Albertson; much of the evening will be spent answering your questions. Last year, he performed the same type of show to SRO crowds at University of Edinboro. Many of you might be interested in how a person of Larry Linville* s stature comes to speak at Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA. This process began in July. All summer and early into the fall my office was besieged by agents letters and phone calls. After soi ting though all of the endless garbage, we eventually decided upon presenting three or four lectures and trying to provide some kind of balance. $ i * This year I decided to obtain the services of a well known personality. Through an increased correspondance with an agent, a date is eventually chosen upon and a contract is sig ned. All that is need after this is to set up the hall, the ride to the airport to pick up the guest, making sure that they are comfortable in their hotel room and then be sure that they get to the lecture hall on time. After the lecture is over, we just reverse the process.

hr
I mentioned balance before and and providing this balance in February will be Major Stan Levchenko, a former K.G.B. officer who has defected to the west and we are in the process of negotiating for another lecture speaker for early April. We have covered everything from "Major Burns" to Major Levchenko. £ The best part of this whole deal is that no matter what happens you will get your money's worth there is no charge to the Mercyhurst community for the any of the lectures.

Your opponent may not like you and therefore may say nasty things about you in public. * £ $ While "negative**^ campaigns do tell us something about the Dr. David Allen emotional and psychological wherewithal of candidates, they Needless to say, there is a Republican or an individual who really do not tell us much about substantial gap between the ideal is only weakly attached to either the simple a d of voting.

The second component of the American voting model, short term forces, accounts for the voting choice of those individuals who do not qualify as strong partisan identifiers. Short term forces consist of the voter's evaluation of issues and the candidates personal attributes. Issues are issues, i.e., candidates are either for or against some idea of how to manage society. Strangely enough, few citizens seem to be familiar with all the issues in any campaign ~ most likely because all the issues do not interest all the people. Candidate attributes are personal characteristics which voters either like or dislike. What a voter likes about a specific candidate is called a "positive" - voter dislikes are called a "negative". Most candidates £ fori high office make use of political pollsters who carry out surveys to establish voter preferences. These surveys provide information about a cand i d a t e s ' " p o s i t i v e s " or "negatives" and about the same. characteristics for his opponent Smart candidates stress their "positive" i attributes and the "negative", attributes of their opponents. The question is: how does this combination of long and short term forces explain the Pennsylvania contests for Governor, U . S . ' S e n a t o r 'an d U . S . Representative? First, all the candidates have gotten as much mileage out of partisan identification as they are going to get. Second, the issues in this set of races seem blurred - all candidates are talking about different schemes or creating more jobs, improving the economy, and safeguarding the environment. Hence, if any of the candidates are going to pull ahead of their respective opponents the only item left to concentrate on is per sonal attributes. As such, you are now witnessing all three sets of candidates "going negative". The six candidates referred to in this article are involved in close races. As they approach the voting deadline they are attempting to obtain a margin of victory by convincing you that they are the guy in the white hat while their opponent wears a black hat. So, what can you do as a concerned and aware voter? First, you do have a personal choice. Second, to excercise that choice find out what each candidates stands for. You can do this by a quick trip to the various campaign headquarters here in town. Campaign staffs will be more than happy to bury you under handouts Which explain what their candidates want to do once they are in office. Third, read and study this material. Fourth, choose the candidate who you feel most closely approximates your vision of how government should operate. .. There is sufficient time before the election for you to become a concerned and aware citizen who is capable of participating wisely in the governing of the nation. Why not try this activity? You will beat the pollsters, mate an informed, choice and exercise the rights which accrued to you on your eighteenth birthday. In short, you will be* doing something that is legal, moral and non-fattening. There are not that many activities these days which have those three characteristics.

Whoopi Outjumps "JacksFlash
by Brian Sheridan Many people are wondering why Woopi Goldberg would take the lead role in a movie as cliched and predictable as JUMPIN JACK FLASH, after making an impressive screen debut in THE COLOR PURPLE, and a guest s p o t o n *T . V . ' s MOONLIGHTING. After all, a film that reeks of "Televisionitis" as badly as FLASH does can kill the career of a rising star. The astounding Goldberg surpasses her material and makes FLASH entertaining though it's fai from being a great movie. \ Beware of any film that has more names on the screen play than you'd see at the bottom of the Declaration of Independence. It usually means the script was written by one team of writers and not accepted so it was passed to more writers who added their contributions. In the end you have a mish-mash of styles and concepts. FLASH has two teams, David H. Franzoni and J.W. Melville, and Patricia Irving with Christopher yna^pson, but still couldn't remotely comes close to being as funny as Goldberg. The film has the appearance of a patch quilt on which many people have sewn on patches. Goldberg plays a computer operator at a large New York bank and communicates with people all over the world, exchanging recipes and advice. At the end of one work day, she receives a transmission from "Jumpin Jack Flash" who is a British agent trapped in Eastern Europe. He needs Goldberg's help in getting a contact so he can come home. A double agent working inside the British Consulate would rather see Goldberg dead than see the return of "Jumpin Jack Flash." The scriptwriters then put Goldberg through a variety of scrapes that any second-rate T.V. comedienne could have handled. Assassins try to kill her by dragging a phone booth she's in down the street with a tow truck. Later her dress gets stuck in a paper shredder. These are just some of the several laughs FLASH tries for that are beneath Goldberg's talents. The real laughs come when she interjects her own eccentric style >p«rsoi*"ti*|taniflij|hr gggnj j make it work. Simple ideas like Goldberg trying to decipher Mick J agger's lyrics to "Jumpin Jack

*J

Flash,"or walking down a New York street under the influence of truth serum create the most satisfying laughs. Up against the scenes that are nothing more than sen tick, you wonder why they just didn't let Goldberg ad-lib the entire film. * * • Other problems confounded the making of FLASH. Goldberg's part was originally meant for a man and then the director had to be replaced. That gave Penny Marshall, best known as "Laverne" from the T.V. series "Laverne and Shirley" a chance to make her debut as a director of feature films. Marshall handles the slapstick sequences quite well. She tries to sustain a fast-pace throughout, attempting to cover up the gaping holes in the script's logic. Other times she knows enough just to turn the camera on and let Goldberg do her thing. As for the suspense elements, Marshall won't be confused with Brian DePalma. Though the plot of FLASH contains overtones of Hitchcock's NORTH BY NORle doesn't botheimmM to paroay tne masters sty IK™'' Along with Marshall, other

familiar faces make the jump to the big screen. On hand in parts that just pad out the film are Jim Belushi, Jon Lovitz, Carol Kane, Anne Potts, Tracy Ullman and Michael McKean. Of that group, it's Kane who plays another dippy UTtyntfC" tfmt -needs—to -find-some other character because this one

Record At 4-3

by Chuck Fleet l Last season the Mercyhurst Lakers returned to Erie blaring their bus horns, letting the students know that they had just stunned the perennial Division III power house Dayton-Flyers with a 19-6 victory. The Flyers had their revenge this year as they defeated the Lakers 30-7 in the Parents' Weekend matchup. The Flyers didn't take long to

show the Lakers why they*are ranked number one in Division III, as they returned the opening kick-off 52 yards to the Laker 30 yard line* The Laker defense showed they^were going to play tough when they held Dayton to just a 22 yard field goal. That turned out to be the only bright spot for the defense as Dayton went on to score on three of its first four possesions. Dayton scored again on a one yard touchdown run after travelling 70 yards in 12 plays making the score 10-0. The Flyers scored again after a Laker defender roughed the kicker giving Dayton the chance to score on a 12 yard touchdown pass to Tony Petrucci. The PA1 failed leaving the Flyers ahead 16-0. ; f The * Hursts offense finally got in the action when Junior Brian Rostek took the ball in from one yard out. The touchdown came about after Rostek hit Tim Wilkins on a 76 yard pass, the longest pass in Mercyhurst history. Unfortunately for the Lakers that would be the only score as the Flyers recovered a 'Hurst fumble on their own one yard line to end an impressive Laker drive. ** J Dayton had control of the ball for a total of 38 minutes gaining 389 yards in total offense. The Lakers gained an impressive 278 yards including 88 yards rushing.
