OLD SALTY WELCOMES YOU TO MERCYHURST'S NEW AND NAUTICAL RESTAURANT

NAOMI A. ROMANCHOK '87 AND BETSY L. LANTZ '88
ith billowing flags, porthole windows, and a crew shell scenario in the picture window, Mercyhurst's new Laker Inn projects a dock-side feeling as the Great Lakes newest nautical restaurant. Opening its doors on September 30, 1985, after a summer of remodeling, the restaurant provides a relaxing environment to meet and dine with friends and family. It also serves as a showcase for Mercyhurst's Hotel-Restaurant Management (HRM) program, which has become the largest single major at the College. The restaurant was acquired in June as a part gift-part purchase package from its

W

former owners Charles A. Dailey, Jr and Michael Barrett. Formerly called Barrett's — yet still referred by "regulars" as "the old Nunzi's" — Mercyhurst's new restaurant is owned and operated by the Glenhurst Corporation, a separate corporation from the College formed to allow "for profit" business enterprises such as the Laker Inn. (See related story on page 13). To give the new facility a Mercyhurst ID, college officials christened the new restaurant, the "Laker Inn," adopting the name of the school's sports team. The Inn is operated by Daniel R. Hann as executive director and Daniel M. Bukowski as manager. Hann, a faculty member in the College's HRM depart-

ment, has his master's in Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management, as well as an impressive background in the foodservice industry. He was the primary controller for TGlFridays in Atlanta and is also credited with opening six Simon and Simon Malone restaurants in Georgia. Bukowski, Hann's management partner, is a 1975 graduate of Mercyhurst, and a member of the College's first hotel and restaurant management class. Like Hann, he has held several positions in the foodservice industry. Locally, Bukowski was assistant innkeeper at the Holiday Inn South, food and beverage manager for the Edinboro Holiday Inn, and most recently, was the general manMERCYHURST MAGAZINE

The Perry Room ager for Erie's University Club. After two and a half months of extensive remodeling, Laker Inn customers today see a building transformed from its former office-like facade to an appealing wharf-like setting. The restaurant is located a mere ten blocks east of the College, where the Inn's "Old Salty" beckons hungry landlubbers with tempting dishes from the sea and shore. Once inside, the relaxing ocean blue decor brings to mind the image of a cozy captain's cabin on a crew ship anchored at sea. Seated at oaken tables in a room filled with nautical atmosphere, guests peruse the Laker Inn menu which offers a wide variety of luncheon and dinner selections prepared by two gourmet chefs, as well as Old Salty specials — sure to delight the palate of any surf or turf lover. For some, the Inn's attractive lounge, reminiscent of a comfortable family room is their favorite spot. Central to its decor are fish netted porthole windows and several crew oars suspended from the ceiling. For others, the main dining room is their choice for an evening out. The room, previously done in a high tech decor using reds, oranges, and yellows, now sports a warmth created by the tasteful combination of blues, beiges, and plaids. But for many, the most attractive aspect of the Inn is its Perry Room, tucked behind the main dining area and used primarily for private parties up to 65. Guests are immediately drawn to the room's east wall, where a mural size photograph of a rustic harbor scene throws a dusky aura over the otherwise stately room.
FALL, 1985

A mantled fireplace adds to the glow of the Perry Room and to either side of the hearth hang original maritime paintings by Robert Lee Perry, great, great grandson of Oliver Hazard Perry. The works, which lend an authenticity to the room's name, were commissioned by the College for special display in the Inn's banquet facility. The Perry Room also pays tribute to the famous figure in naval history with table centerpieces displaying two historical flags - one being the 15 star American flag of 1812 said to have inspired Frances Scott Key to write "The National Anthem," and the other bearing Perry's battle cry during the Battle of Lake Erie, "Don't Give Up The Ship" — the dying words of Perry's friend Captain James Lawrence.

Establishing a commercial restaurant for the benefit of the College's hotelrestaurant management students was one of the goals set forth in Mercyhurst's Five Year Master Plan in 1980. Currently, there are six student managers at the Inn and another 13 HRM majors complement the restaurant's 41 member staff. "Aside from providing the students with the hands-on opportunity to apply lessons learned in the classroom, working at the Inn allows the students to develop customer contact skills," Dan Hann explains. "With the input of our hotel-restaurant department, its student majors, along with the proper organization and staff training, I see the Laker Inn becoming a very successful and well-run restaurant," Hann added. The Inn is currently serving 160 lunches daily and on the average of 200 dinners a night. "If business continues at the rate it has during our first month," predicts Bukowski, "one year from now we will be a million dollar operation in a 130 seat restaurant." When that happens, perhaps college officials will give thought to adding a third flag to the tables in the Perry Room — one bearing the Mercyhurst College motto, "Seize the Opportunity^' a directive that has made an endeavor such as the Laker Inn a reality. IfiH The Laker Inn is located at 1530 East 38 Street. Hours: Lunches daily from 11 to 2; dinner from 5 to 10. Sunday hours noon to 7. The bar is open from 11:30 to 2 a.m. serving finger foods, pizza and subs until midnight. For reservations, call 825-6268.

MERCYHURST HISTORY

WEBER MEMORIAL
Medallions Signature the Liberal Arts
SISTER M. EUSTACE TAYLOR '29

E

very passerby must have noticed and wondered about the five limestone medallions that decorate the west wall of Weber Hall. Placed there in 1953, twenty years after the founding of Mercyhurst, they were meant to be an affirmation of the Liberal Arts nature of the College. The medallions still do that service — looking out as guardian spirits that guide those who seriously seek enlargement of mind and enrichment of the human spirit. They were then, and are now, symbols of what concerns the true Liberal Arts tradition: the pursuit of beauty, of truth, of goodness. St. Thomas Aquinas is central to the group. Philosopher and Theologian, he spent his life searching the realms of knowledge — human and divine. Mozart to his right and Michelangelo (yes, his name is misspelled on the

medallion!) to his left were creators of beauty in sound and color and shape. The other two, Dante and Shakespeare, poet and p o e t - d r a m a t i s t , having explored the mysteries of the human spirit, expressed, in beauty and power of word, what they found. All five left to humankind a rich heritage of beauty that is and is yet to be. These medallions are only one artistic aspect of this English Gothic structure whose slate shingle roofing and gables with limestone fascia panels bring its exterior into harmony with the main building. And the practiced eye will also find a number of interesting features inside Weber Hall that echo the message of the five medallions. That it so plainly expresses aesthetic values is probably due to the intention of those who planned and designed it. The members

of the Joseph J. Weber family chose to make it a worthy memorial to their father and were pleased when two daughters, Sister Mary Alice and Sister Mary Rachel, Sisters of Mercy, offered their inheritance to finance the work. Both Sisters watched daily the shaping of this memorial; one was not to see its dedication. After a short illness, Sister Mary Alice died — just a few months before completion. The person responsible for both architectural design and interior decoration was Brandon Smith*, leading Pittsburgh architect, who, under the watchful eye of Mother M. Borgia, used his talents to select materials and appointments that would satisfy the desires of the Weber family. Commissioned to design a building to house both a Library and a Little Theatre, he used well his gifts as architect

and artist at both levels of the new structure. Viewing Weber Hall now, one realizes how wonderfully well he made a happy union of Library and Little Theatre. Come with me now along the Cloister Walk, the approach to Weber Hall. Its limestone-framed Gothic arches and flagstone walk make it a proper link between the two English Gothic buildings. As we enter the south door of the Hall, notice the four graceful sconces that adorn the walls of the lobby. These are originals, made from a mold that was broken after they were cast. For a number of years, this lobby led into a small lounge furnished with wrought-iron furniture — a pleasant room in which to visit with a lecturer and guests before or after a performance in the Little Theatre. We move from the lobby to a circular staircase with ceramic and terrazzo treads. Wrought-iron balustrades, in black and delicately scrolled, edge the staircase. It takes us down to the lobby of the Little Theatre where, atop a sunken Pompeian Stone fountain, a statue of Pan once played his pipes. On special occasions, one heard their music as water playing under dramatic spotlights. From this attractive lobby we enter the Little Theatre where the architect, with the assistance of Dan Chisholm, wellknown Erie decorator, created a storybook setting by putting in place wall mirrors with candelabra at their center and by using French Rococco designs, hand-painted, on the ceiling and as frames about the mirrors and proscenium — a fitting place for the tales that would be told on the stage. It is pleasant to recall that Sister M. Angelica and four of her art majors were the artists who executed these designs. Again, moving back to the staircase, we ascend to look at the large Hall that was the Reading Room of the Library and is now the dance studio. Before entering, stand at the upper landing and, looking down the well of stairs to the sunken fountain, experience the harmony of shape and color there. A lovely candelabra accents this scene. The Hall itself has the effect of a chapel. The high vaulted ceiling, made by arches and beams of Douglas Fir, and the fourteen-foot windows might easily have been designed for a place of worship. The architect probably fashioned the room as a proper setting for the picture that was to dominate it; a fourteenfoot high copy of del Sarto's 'Assumption," a gift of Archbishop John Mark Gannon in 1932, set in place as the first altar piece in the chapel of the O'Neil Memorial. The picture, framed in ornate gold leaf, is a painting made from the

original in the Pitti Gallery in Florence. High on the south wall of the Hall is an often unnoticed stained glass window in memory of Sister Mary Alice Weber. It celebrates, as do the medallions on the exterior west wall, the nobility of human achievement. Highly decorative and rich in color, it was designed by Dr. John Donatelli, for many years professor of philosophy and psychology at Mercyhurst. His inspiration came from this sentence in Wisdom, 7:16: "For in His hands are both we and our works, and all wisdom, and the knowledge and skill of works." His design shows four medallions beneath rays coming from the hands of God: two figures, representing mankind, looking upward toward the Godhead; two women performing family tasks; a learned man with books of wisdom; a man performing daily skills.

Indeed, the window speaks of the beauty, truth and goodness of human work under God's care and guidance. It is a tribute both to Sister Mary Alice and to the other members of the Weber family who, imitating their father, have spent their lives in the spirit of Dr. Donatelli's Scriptural quotation. As we look back at the dance studio that has replaced the former library, it seems true to say that few dancing floors are set in a hall where grace and beauty already reside. Might it not be a right setting for the performance of a Classic Choric Ode? We descend that attractive staircase and leave the building. Doing so, I look up in reverent salute to those masters of the intellectual and fine arts — St. Thomas Aquinas, Mozart, Michelangelo, Dante and Shakespeare — those reminders that Mercyhurst is a home of the Liberal Arts. And I think gratefully of the generosity of the family who gave this gift in memory of Joseph J. Weber. *Brandon Smith also designed the setting and directed the installation of the gates and gate houses at Mercyhurst. We see again there the slate shingle roofs which match the other two buildings. While directing construction of Weber Hall Mr. Smith heard that the gates of the Harry K. Thaw home in Pittsburgh were being sold as scrap. He alerted Mother M. Borgia to this news, and she took steps to purchase them at once. Sister M. Eustace Taylor, professor of English, writes of little known stories in Mercyhurst history for each issue of the Magazine.

Weber Library in 1953

W

hile it is true that many of the family p a p e r s , business records and public documents donated to an archives often come from a dusty attic or musty basement, their present repository in the Archives of Erie Studies at Mercyhurst College in no way resembles the usual picture most people have of what an archives is. Every new collection to the Mercyhurst Archives is given a number and location, and is organized chronologically, logically, and/or alphabetically. Stored in specially designed acid-free folders and boxes and cross-referenced by donor, subject and type, the Mercyhurst Archives can hardly be called either disorganized or musty and dusty. Researchers and research requests come to the Archives door, not only from area colleges, universities and high schools, but from institutions from Maine to California. Inquiries for sermons, letters, paintings, objets d' art, ethnic artifacts, governmental files, blueprints, and background on historical persons and events, are just a sample of the requests received annually. The Mercyhurst Archives established in 1972 and located in the Hammermill Library at the College, contain a myriad of 320 collections ranging from 46 private family papers, 32 business records, 34 collections about the city of Erie, 36 on Erie County, Mercyhurst College collections, 14 churches and 32 club records, as well as the history of the Sisters of Mercy. The call for information sometimes based on a single old letter or scrap of paper can lead the archivist on a trail of clues worthy of Agatha Christie. As an example, consider the request by the Athenaeum of Philadelphia which was publishing a "Biographical Dictionary of Philadelphia Architects". The Athenaeum was looking for an inventory of the blueprints by architect F. Ferdinand Durang, who designed Mercyhurst's Old Main and Egan Hall. The search first led me to the College's maintenance office, where the original blueprints were found. I then continued

my search via every office in Old Main, and even to the rarely used catwalk, for the architect's original renderings of the administration and residence halls which years ago hung in the main foyer. Alas, to no avail. However, copies of the blueprint listings were sent to Athenaeum for inclusion in the "Dictionary". This volume is only one of several

"The call for information sometimes based on a single old letter or scrap of paper ... can lead the archivist on a trail of clues worthy of Agatna Christie!'
directories in which Mercyhurst's collections are listed. Notable among the listings are: Directory of Archives, Manuscript Repositories in the United States, and the Directory of Special Libraries and Information Centers. Having found my name in one such directory, a professor at California State College in Bakersfield, California sent me an interesting request. He was looking for an operating manual and parts catalog for a Brown Folding Machine which supposedly had been manufactured by an Erie firm in 1903. The disassembled machine was in the possession of his iriend, the editor of "The Mexico City Daily Bulletin" who was trying to reconstruct it for use. Having discovered that St. John Kanty Prep School had also possessed this type of equipment, I traced the individual who purchased the machine when Kanty Prep closed. From him, I learned the Kanty machine was manufactured by the Baum Company, not Brown as originally thought. Going back to the 1888 Erie City Directory, I found that Wellington

Downing was listed as the manager of the Brown Company. The 1888 reference caused me to check on another volume in our collection, the "Souvenir Erie, Pa. Illustrated Book, 1888'; and there I found a biography of Wellington Downing that revealed that he was also an inventor. All this information was compiled and mailed to our new professor-friend in Bakersfield. He contacted the U.S. Patent Office, and lo, seven months after the inception of our search, the patent for the folding machine was found under Downing's name with illustrations and an explanation of its operation. If you ever visit Mexico City, you may find this old machine busily folding newspapers at the "Bulletin." The files accumulated about the Brown Company were added to our already extensive files on other defunct Erie County businesses, notably those of the Erie Oil Company, Odin Stove/ Republic Heater Company, Nickel Plate Mills, the Phoenix Hotel of Corry, Molar Oil Company, Erie Brewing Company, Burke Electric Company, and the Erie Fish Company. Researching requests on the history of business in our area is a favorite part of my work-a-day world. A present revival of interest in old cast iron cookware has led to many requests and visits from researchers and collectors regarding Erie's former Griswold Manufacturing Company, a major producer of such cookware. Besides the biographies and industrial history obtained from Erie County histories, I was able to supply designs for 29 of Griswold's patents. For me, the greatest reward of being an archivist comes from working with the history of the people, places, and things that make up a culture and society and in being part of an historical operation that continues to serve the 'inquiring mind', a hallmark of Mercyhurst College for almost sixty years.

Sister Mary Lawrence Franklin has been archivist at Mercyhurst for the past six years.

n enthusiastic crowd estimated at 5,000 came to the Hurst on a perfect summer's day to celebrate America's 209th birthday. Picnics, a brass band, watermelons, square dancing, and fireworks made it a spectacular Fourth of July on the Mercyhurst campus — our gift to the Erie community. Activities began in the afternoon with a big band concert in the Grotto by Erie's Haener Brothers followed later in the day by Tennessee Back Porch, a country and western group. Parents, friends, and members of the Mercyhurst community cheered on 64 youngsters between the ages of 6 and 12 who took part in a special Junior Olympics program, each competing in his or her own age group in five separate events. No sooner did the youngsters finish with these contests, than they joined senior citizens, students and adults for a watermelon eating party in Garvey Park, where ten 20-pound watermelons disappeared in short order! Our Campus Center was filled with activity, too. The Y-Squares Dancing Club provided a square dancing demonstration, and open volleyball games followed the demonstration. Other campus visitors took advantage of the opportunity to tour our new Nautilus Center in the Campus Center complex. Following a grand scale picnic supper, the back campus filled from east to west, north to south with members from the Erie community delighted by the outdoor concert performed by Pittsburgh's River City Brass Band. It was the groups first trip to the Mercyhurst campus and they left the celebrants humming good ol' fashioned "American" tunes . . . and with a promise to return in 1986. "They were a great addition to our program," said President Garvey, who masterminded the day's celebration. "We've already asked them back to entertain at our next year's July 4th Celebration." The Band ended with a rousing rendition of "Stars and Stripes Forever," which punctuated the beginning of a spectacular fireworks display on the back campus. The next day the town was talking about Mercyhurst's Fourth of July, and the local media was reporting on the splendid birthday gift given to the Erie community by the College. The Erie Daily Times reported "A great many people spent the day at the hilltop college for the Fourth of July, and they couldn't have asked for a prettier, more relaxing setting than provided by the campus. And the fireworks, which lasted for an hour and a half, had to rank as one of the best displays in the area. "Mercyhurst hopes to build on this year's public response," said Dr. Garvey, "and expand the celebration into an annual event. We'd like to give Erie the kind of celebration usually reserved for Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. The Erie community has been good to Mercyhurst, and we think an old-fashioned family style celebration on this important day in America's history is a good way of returning the favor." Conine S. Halperin is the Program Director for the Erie Business and Labor Council

They Remember Us When . . .
BETSY L.LANTZ'88
t's natural. Times change. Thirty years ago the cooks in the Mercyhurst College cafeteria were preparing family style meals for approximately 50 female students. Today, nearly 500 students both male and female eat in the self-service facility. Few people remain on campus long enough to see such changes. But Jessie Woodson, Joan Gorney, and Clara Mizikowski can tell you all about them. Woodson retired this fall after 30 years of service, Gorney is celebrating her 25th year at the College, and Mizikowski is entering her 28th. It was in October of 1955 that Jessie Woodson came to Erie from Jackson, Tennessee and joined the housekeeping staff at the College. Once the word got around about Jessie's cooking, she was offered a transfer to the kitchen, where she had been the head cook for the past ten years. Good natured, never complaining, always singing and joking, is how Jessie's co-workers affectionately describe her. No one seems to be able to recall a day that Jessie missed work. Her cheerful greetings early each morning have long been an inspiration to the cafeteria staff. To them, she is an irreplaceable teacher in her own right. Jessie, who recently celebrated her 65th birthday, admits that she will miss having a place to come to each morning, yet she feels it is time for her to retire. "I may do some traveling and I just want to enjoy myself," Jessie said of her future. Living with her sister's family, Jessie enjoys church activities and traveling in her spare time. Lois Keefe, night cook, fondly recalls the time when Jessie purchased a complete set of red luggage to take on a trip back to Tennessee. "She didn't have enough to put in all that luggage, but she took it all with her any wayf Keefe laughed. Certainly one of the people who will miss Jessie the most since she has "packed her bags" and left Mercyhurst is Joan Gorney, who has worked with Woodson for 25 years. An Erie native,

Clara Mizikowski, Jessie Woodson, Joan Gorney Joan is responsible for all of the cafeteria's baking, and that's 60 to 100 dozen cookies and 40 dozen rolls every day! Actually, Joan retired in June of 1980 after 23 years of service in the College cafeteria. She spent two years traveling and relaxing before the College asked her to return as baker in 1982. "No one bakes the students' favorite chocolate chip crunchy cookies like Joan," muses John Washington, food service director. "Just ask them!" Gorney has two children and seven grandchildren. Two of her grandchildren, Ron and Paula Casey, are currently students at the College. At the age of 70, Joan intends to remain at Mercyhurst as long as her health permits. In five years, she'll be marking her 30th year at the College. "I'd love a partyf she quips, "just as long as I don't have to bake my own cake." Parties, of course, are Mizikowski's specialty. In addition to serving students on the cafeteria line, Clara prepares the table dressings for all banquets held at the College. She learned much of her artistry from Sister Mary Rachael, former head of the home economics department at the College. Cultivating her own flowers for her attractive centerpiece arrangements, Clara turns out table settings that are as beautiful as her co-workers' meals are delicious. Mizikowski, 66, celebrated her 25th anniversary at Mercyhurst in October 1982 and in a year or so, Clara plans to retire. "I love our students, the faculty, and our Sisters," Mizikowski responded when asked why she had devoted so much of her life to pleasing diners at the Hurst. Woodson and Gorney agreed. Times change, but dedicated staff members don't. At least not at Mercyhurst, where special people seem drawn to remain at a special place.

hat keeps a person somewhere for 29 years? Dr. Vivetta Petronio, who spent four years at Mercyhurst College as a student and another 25 years as a faculty member, sums it up saying, "It's the people." "Somehow or another, Mercyhurst has a knack of drawing wonderful people here, both students and faculty? according to Dr. Petronio. "There's a spirit here, a warmth that you don't find other places. And there's also a regard for scholarship that I think is unusual for a small college," she adds. As a commuter student at the College in the mid-1950's, she has fond memories of a very different Mercyhurst. Her graduating class numbered about 80 females with a faculty almost entirely of Sisters of Mercy.

w

"J think people who don't know me as a teacher, don't really know me."
Petronio, who started her teaching career in French and English at Erie's Strong Vincent High School, credits her former teacher and mentor Sister M. Gabriel for encouraging her to apply for the available teaching position in the French Department at Mercyhurst in 1960. Today she is a full professor and tenured faculty member at the College. Over the past 25 years, Petronio has seen many changes in Mercyhurst, but she cites "going coeducational 15 years ago as the most outstanding of them all." "Many other changes," she explained, "are the direct result of cultural and generational changes that have occurred in the students." Dr. Petronio has taught

Dr. Petronio students that have grown up through the 1950's, the 60's, the 70's and into the 80's. "Being among the students has helped keep me open-minded and more willing to face change," she claims. She feels her biggest contribution in the area of teaching has been that she has always tried to be as "excellent" as possible. "I think I come alive when I'm in front of a class. I think people who don't know me as a teacher, don't really know me." Dr. Petronio hopes students will remember her in two ways. First as a good teacher, and second, as a person they could relate to. Her involvement at the College over the past two decades includes her current position as the director of the English and Modern Languages Department, her many years on the College Senate, and her past leadership as director of the

Egan Scholars program and director of the self study of Mercyhurst College for the Middle States evaluation team in 1980-82. She recently served as a consultant and book reviewer for a French text for Holt, Reinhart and Winston, and last spring she published an article on a new method of teaching conversational French in the "Annals of the American Council of Teachers for Foreign Languages." Petronio beams when she talks about her Fulbright Scholarship to France. "It was a dream come true for me. There I was in the country that I had learned so much about and loved very much. I spent an entire year there with French students and French citizens, really getting to know the people and the language." She later studied for her Master's at Middlebury College and received a full fellowship to Yale University, where she was awarded her Ph.D. in French in 1974. Today in her spare time, Dr. Petronio enjoys reading, needlework, playing the piano, and "struggling" to learn the guitar.

" . . . I come alive when Ym in front of a class"
Reflecting on her years at Mercyhurst, Dr. Petronio notes, "When you're 21 and just starting in a career, you never think 25 years into the future, and yet it seems all too short when you look back. Each September I look forward to a new year of teaching. It's what I do best and enjoy most. For me, the last 25 years have been a wonderful time in my life."

ith the full support of the government of the Republic of Ireland, including both parties in the governing coalition and the opposition party four representatives of the Irish-American Partnership visited Erie recently as guests of Mercyhurst College as part of a month-long tour of the United States. Accompanying Paddy Harte, a ranking member of the Dail, the Irish Parliament, were Harte's legislative assistant Thomas Costelloe, Attorney Daire Hogan, and Richard Doyle, marketing manager of Ireland's Industrial Development Authority The Irish-American Partnership is an organization that aims at directing the energy, enthusiasm, and generosity of Irish-Americans toward the economic and social development of Ireland. Its symbol is an American flag with three shamrocks replacing the field of 50 stars. Harte said the design was chosen because the Partnership is aimed at all of Ireland and the one symbol common to both North and South is the shamrock. Harte said the involvement of 15 of what he referred to as the "Irish Elite" in business, finance and education, as members of the board of trustees of the Partnership was made possible because of a survey that showed an interest by Irish-Americans in helping develop the economy of their ancestral homeland. The nationwide survey was conducted for the Irish government by students and faculty members at Mercyhurst College under the direction of Dr. William P. Garvey and Brian McHugh, director of the education department at the College. According to Harte, the idea of the Irish-American Partnership is to raise an initial $50 million to invest in the Irish economy, in things like venture capital, natural resources, tourism, key technologies, and urban renewal. Harte pointed out that Ireland is very short on capital, although its young population — 50 percent of the Irish people are under 25

W

years of age — provides ample labor. Underlying the entire Partnership is the philosophy expressed by Harte, that if Ireland is eventually to find peace and harmony among the Catholics and Protestants of both North and South, there must be prosperity. "The Irish economy needs outside help to secure that prosperity^' explained Harte. Since the Mercyhurst survey showed that Irish-Americans are willing to help out by investing, buying some imported Irish goods, touring the Emerald Isle, and maybe even purchasing homes there, Harte and other Partnership leaders say it is necessary for Ireland to tap that source of good will and capital to build a strong economy Harte feels that for too long IrishAmerican leaders and others have been telling their 40 million brothers and sisters of Irish heritage not to send money to Irish groups because the groups use the donations to help fund the factions that carry on the fighting in Northern Ireland. Now, he said, there is a way for Irish-Americans to help and know that

their money and support is going into real development, not into battle. Harte added that the members of the Partnership are interested in the Irish economy, not in politics. He admitted that the participation by residents of Northern Ireland will come only when people there ask to participate, however five seats on the board of trustees have been reserved for members from the North. He insisted that projects in Northern Ireland that seek funding through the Partnership will receive an equal hearing, even before the northern seats on the board are filled. Doyle said one indication of the need for economic help can be seen in the figures for venture capital in the United States and Ireland for 1984. The United States produced $14 for each citizen that year, while Ireland produced only about $1 per capita. Many of the ideas for the Irish American Partnership have been borrowed from the United Jewish Appeal in the United States. According to Harte, "The success of the UJA is one indication of the potential that lies in appealing to Americans to help relatives, however distant, who still live abroad." Harte said local volunteer committees will be set up in cities and towns across America, and there will be professionals, both American and Irish, available on the regional level to help them with publicity and fund raising. He added that the Mercyhurst survey and the analysis done by BryanMonaghan (both former Mercyhurst College faculty members) indicate that the greatest support for the Partnership will probably come from smaller cities in middle America, rather than from the large metropolitan areas. Harte emphasized that the Partnership will not offer charitable give-aways, but opportunities for investments in a promising young country Jerry Trambley is a staff writer for the "Sunday Times-News" in Erie, Pennsylvania.

THANKS PROF

Robert I. Ronksley
SHIRLEY A. STEBELL 79, '83
ivorced after 15 years of marriage and two children, at the age of 40 I entered Mercyhurst College in 1974 to study law enforcement. And I was frightened! After being away from school for 25 years I asked myself, "Could I do this?" Would I be able to work six to seven days a week, keep raising my family on my own and go to college, all at the same time? My children believed I could. My parents believed I could. And so did Mr. Robert Ronksley, who has since retired as associate professor of law enforcement at Mercyhurst.

D

"Through his never-say-die attitude to 'keep going, don't give up! I reached my goal."
I first saw Mr. Ronksley during my Freshman Orientation. In his welcoming address to the students, he gave me a nod, as if to say, "I know you may feel different, but don't. I'll help you." And help he did. He was my professor, my advisor and my friend, and still is today. Mr. Ronksley, a former F.B.I, agent with 25 years service, brought to his classroom a sense of dignity. With tremendous knowledge and fortitude, he instilled in his students, above all else, respect for law and order. His professional background enabled him to direct his teaching with great diversity . . . p r e p a r i n g s t u d e n t s , be they in-service or otherwise, closer to their goals. Through the next five years, my life began to take on a new meaning. I became a volunteer for the Erie Rape Crisis Center as a para-professional counFALL, 1985

selor and received The Distinguished Service Award in 1980 and 1983. But, there were so many times, weary of trying to do so much, I would say to Mr. Ronksley, "I can't go on with all this. It's too much." And he would gently answer, "Don't give up. You can do it, I know you can, keep trying". And I did go on. I graduated in 1979 with a bachelor of arts degree in law enforcement. I walked off the stage after accepting my diploma, passing by a gentle, smiling Robert Ronksley. Through his warm and compassionate understanding, I had fulfilled a dream. Through his never-say-die attitude to "keep going, don't give up" I reached my goal. And through his tremendous knowledge in the projection of law and order, and all it stood for, I wanted to learn more. And so, "go on" I did. With the help and assistance of Dr. William Garvey, President of Mercyhurst College, I enrolled in the master's program in criminal justice. His direct contribution in my being employed at Mercyhurst played an important part in completing my degree. I graduated in 1983 and still am employed at Mercyhurst as security/counselor for McAuley Residence Hall under the

Shirley Stebell, Robert Ronsklexj supervison of Phyllis Aiello, director of Housing and Safety. I could not have done all this without the help from my family nor all the professors, who so patiently taught me, and I am indeed grateful to them all — and to Sister Michele who so patiently gave me so much advice in my never-ending financial struggles. But, it was Mr. Ronksley who first recognized the potential I thought I had lost. He gave me back my self-respect and self-esteem. He gave me back my dignity. I shall always be grateful to him. I salute you, Sir. Shirley A. Stebell Class of 1979 and 1983

Discipline is Key to Classical Ballet
JEFF FARANCE

I

-w" er fluid movements, dramatic -1 gestures, the way her speech J L glides from one language to another, even her name — Madame Valentina Belova — are all hallmarks of an international ballet star. For 67 of her 77 years, Madame, as she is known across the country, has been a student and teacher of classical ballet. For a week recently she shared her expertise with students of one of her former students, Mrs. Kathleen (Kitty) Megnin Smith '78, owner of the Venango Ballet and Performing Arts Studio located in Seneca, New York. Madame was Kitty's professor of ballet at Mercyhurst College, and became a professor emeritus in 1979. She then moved to Santa Cruz, California, the west coast mecca for dancers. "The people here in the eastern USA, when I show them something, they eat it up. They're not blase, you know," enthuses Madame, adding that the young people of Venango County are easier to teach than those in California. "Santa Cruz people, they are very relaxed," she observes, punctuating all of her sentences with waves of her arms. In general, ballet is knowing continued gains in popularity, yet many youngsters — and success in ballet requires a very early start — are unwilling to accept the discipline involved, she allows.

"Classical ballet will always remain a basic thing . . . the steps (on which) choreography builds," says Madame. 'At the beginning of the 20th century, modern dance abolished ballet, classical dance completely. Then they realized they needed the discipline. "A revolution is always to destroy what came before. Now, modern dance incorporates the elements of classical ballet. History repeats itself," Belova and Smith agree. "Post-modern dance is sometimes crazy in the mind . . . it repeats and repeats," Madame says. "It, too, is looking back to ballet for the basic building blocks." A thoroughly entertaining conversationalist, Madame paints vivid word pictures, often easing in phrases from other languages and giggling when she is unable to translate a French phrase into English. Tiny and driven by seemingly boundless energy, Madame Belova has an expressive face — malleable features accented by broad eyebrows. "Modern dance is a way of exploring movements . . . it reflects more the social state in general, the climate in which we live," she says. Madame believes classical ballet is still on the rise in the United States and that this country is taking a substantial lead in ballet. "The key ingredient is to start young

Madame Belova, Kitty Smith 78 with a good teacher. Classical ballet is a thing that you have to start correctly, for it is not only an art, but a science. "For those who start late, there are still benefits," she notes. "Posture and placement are the healthiest things for any person. And, of course, the value of learning the discipline of ballet is important," Madame adds. Belova recalls with a chuckle some of her adventures with students in the Santa Cruz Youth Ballet, many of whom are involved only at the behest of their parents. "The mothers take it very seriously^' she notes. "I had 30 kids on stage and I went through hell." She and Smith made a return visit to Mercyhurst before Madame headed west to Santa Cruz, to resume her many projects and to enjoy the comforts of her mobile home, "my castle," she explained. The momentum of 67 years of dancing will apparently propel her beyond any thoughts of retirement. JeffFarance is a writer for "The Derrick" in Oil City.

ON THE HILL
Trustees Form Glenhurst Corporation
The trustees of Mercyhurst College have approved the formation of a "for profit" corporation separate from the Mercyhurst College Corporation to umbrella independent business endeavors taken on by the College. The corporation, called the Glenhurst Corporation (the "Glen" taken from the College's location in Glenwood Hills and "Hurst" from the institution's name) has assumed the operation of Barrett's Restaurant, now called the Laker Inn. In addition, all catering done by the Laker Inn and the College's hotel-restaurant management department will come under the Glenhurst Corporation. Other corporation ventures would fall in the categories of real estate and leasing enterprises. Officers of the Glenhurst Corporation are John J. Maus as President; E. William Kennedy as vice president; and James F. Lieb, secretary-treasurer. Maus and Lieb are graduates of the Hurst, class of '73 and 74, respectively. Maus, Mercyhurst's director of finance is an officer of the College; Lieb is controller; and Kennedy, also a College officer, is the director of student services. Their combined service to Mercyhurst totals 34 years.

Recent 'Hurst Grads in Professional Schools
Seven graduates of the Class of 1985 at Mercyhurst College are in their first year of professional school in law, medicine and veterinary medicine, and six accounting graduates recently passed the CPA examination. IN LAW SCHOOL: Cheryl Ignasiak of Erie (political science) and Joseph Edward McGraw of Oil City, a psychology and American Studies graduate, are studying at the University of Pittsburgh Law School. Debra Jo Camarata of Jamestown, New York is pursuing her juris doctorate at the University of Richmond; while Katrine Erie of Butler, Pennsylvania, is studying at Santa Clara School of Law in Santa Clara, California. Camarata and Erie were both political science majors at the Hurst. The four law students from the Hurst join the ranks of 40 other alums from Mercyhurst who are practicing or soon-to-be practicing attorneys who completed their baccalaureate studies at the hilltop college. IN OSTEOPATHIC SCHOOL: Candyce Hoover of Conneaut Lake, Ohio is a first year medical student at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri. IN PODIATRY SCHOOL: Ronald G.

SPORTS

Gridders Chasing Playoff Berth
ROBERT SHREVE
hen Mercyhurst brought collegiate football to Erie in 1981, the main reason given was to stimulate male enrollment. No one in their right mind would have expected the Lakers to challenge for a Division III Playoff berth in the first decade, let alone after just five years. The Mercyhurst Lakers have quickly claimed a spot among the elite of Division III football programs. This season Mercyhurst has steamrolled six opponents in seven outings. The Lakers were ranked 15th in Division III prior to dropping a 33-15 decision at Canisius in week number seven. Despite the loss, the Blue and Green are in the playoff hunt. "When we started the program five years ago, our plan was to be at this point," comments coach Tony DeMeo. "We're competing on the national level for the second year in a row. I think we've made great strides in the five years we've had football." Mercyhurst opened with a 45-7 win at Brockport State, then dismantled Niagara, 82-0. The third contest was supposed to be the Lakers' first real test. They passed with flying colors, 38-3. Marietta was the fourth victim, 21-14. Mercyhurst next avenged their only loss in the last fourteen games, 31-6 over Buffalo State, before claiming a muddy 20-0 triumph over Duquesne. A year ago, Mercyhurst finished 8-1, but DeMeo's playoff h o p e s were rebuffed. He's taking a conservative approach this time around. "We're not even thinking about it," understates DeMeo. "We're taking each week one at a time. This attitude has helped me and the team mentally. If we start thinking about the rankings, we can get sidetracked."

Basketball Team Prepares For '85-86 Campaign
Billy Kalbaugh begins his fifth year as the Laker basketball coach with renewed optimism and a new three-year contract. Both are results of a 17-11 record last year, including upset wins over a pair of nationally-ranked quintets, Gannon and Mansfield. Kalbaugh does have his work cut out.

The Lakers must replace three starters, including all-time leading scorer John Green. Mercyhurst ranked 15th in Division II in scoring offense, averaging 81.0 points, but almost fifty percent of that production has graduated. Co-captains Marty Cams and Todd Lee form the nucleus of the 1985-86 team. Cams, a 6'8" senior center, averaged 10.6 points and 6.9 rebounds, adding 46 blocked shots. Lee is a silky-smooth 6'6" junior forward. He finished as the second-leading scorer with a 14.8 average, pulling down 6.6 rebounds per game, as well. Senior Kenney Moss (5.3 ppg., 3.6 rpg.) is expected to open at the other forward spot, with junior Matt Nesser (3.7 ppg., 107 assists) playing point guard. Sophomore Nate Harris (3.5 ppg.) will try and fill Green's shoes. Other returnees include 6'9" Chuck Brower and 6'7" Tim Winbush. Kalbaugh reached into Canada for two of his recruits, 6'10" center Chris Mindach and 5'9" guard Earl Moncrieffe. The other members of the Class of '89 are 6'3" guard Vinnie DiMella and 6'4" forward Mark Davis. The Lakers also have a newcomer in the coaching ranks, with Joe Spinelli beginning his first campaign as

Kalbaugh's assistant. Mercyhurst opens their 28-game slate on November 23 against Alliance.

Soccer Team sets Win Record
In 1981, the Mercyhurst soccer team posted a 9-2-2 record. On three other occasions, the Lakers have won eight games. Never have they won more than nine. Never, that is, until this year. With two matches remaining, the 1985 bootersare 12-3-1. First-year coach Rick Burns has resurrected a program which won just eight games over the past two seasons. "I didn't expect to win this many this year," admits Burns. "It's a combination of good recruits playing well together." Burns hit the recruiting trail hard, bringing in ten new players, including eight from Minnesota. "This has been an ideal situation for me to step into," he relates. "It has been really positive all the way around. The new kids are doing well on the field and academically. We need to improve some areas, mainly our playing field, but we should continue to be better and better." Robert Shreve is sports information director at Mercyhurst.

ALUMNI NEWS

Alumni Celebrate Homecoming
GARY L. BUKOWSKI 7 3
In what has been described as one of the most successful alumni turnouts in the history of Mercyhurst College, graduates of the hilltop college returned to their alma mater from all 50 states in September to celebrate the college's annual Homecoming and Alumni College event. The three-day reunion began on a Friday evening with a Cap and Gown Reception for the returning alums, followed by a slide presentation which featured life at Mercyhurst from the early days of its founding by the Sisters of Mercy in 1926 to the present. One of the most popular events on the alumni weekend calendar was set in the Chapel and Foyer where graduates who were married in Christ the King Chapel renewed vows and were guests of the College at a wedding reception held in their honor. An old fashion tailgate party preceded the victorious Lakers vs Frostburg game at Erie's Veterans Stadium. Highlight of the weekend was the awards dinner where reunion classes were honored, in particular, the special anniversary class of 1935 celebrating its 50th anniversary; silver anniversary class members from 1960; and tenth year celebrants from the Class of 1975. The banquet also marked the occasion for the presentation of the College's "Distinguished Alumni of the Year Award" presented to Rita Walter Weiss '57 for her contributions to education, her profession, and outstanding service to her community (See related story).

his question has been asked of me on a number of occasions. Then follows more queries — "Were you born in Erie?" No, I reply. "Are you from around here?" No, once again. "Have any of your children graduated from Mercyhurst?" No. "Then what was it that prompted you to d o n a t e a million dollars to Mercyhurst College?" There were several factors that entered into that decision in 1980. Long ago I had made up my mind that someday I would like to do such a deed

if ever I were in a position to do so. You may say that I felt that if it were ever possible, I would like to return something substantial to the community. My involvement for nine years as President of the Erie Philharmonic gave me great insight into the trials of providing good music as well as understanding the role of a symphony orchestra in a community such as Erie. For many years, lack of funds had hindered the symphony from becoming a leading cultural entity, and after extensive research, it became obvious to me

that the Arts faced a grave problem in many communities. At the same time, however, in those communities in which the Arts flourished, they were supported predominantly by private funds. The Arts although present, were not in the forefront in Erie and the poem by Katherine Ann Porter kept h a u n t i n g me. "The Arts live c o n t i n u o u s l y . . .

Naturally, I felt that a contribution to the Arts was inevitable on my part. But what form was the next question. Most assuredly, it would have to benefit

many people, especially the youth, and enhance the quality of life for all. The first step came in 1976 when my wife and I endowed the D'Angelo International Young Artist Competition which is held annually on the campus of Mercyhurst College. We were pleased with the growth and direction that endeavor had taken, but before I would commit myself further I had to find out more about the College, its direction, its commitment to the humanities and liberal arts, and its future plans. It was of utmost importance in our minds to determine whether or not Mercyhurst provided an opportunity for students with talent to study and perform in an environment which stimulates and encourages the individual to be creative, broaden his or her visions, and develop the necessary steps for fulfillment of his or her goals.

First Year Report
CAMPAIGN NEARING $4.5 MILLION GOAL

T

he $4.5 million Campaign for Mercyhurst College has reached 84 per cent of its goal, or $3,782,360 in the first of three years of the drive. Campaign contributions among the nine categories of donors asked to support the hilltop college in its first major campaign in its near 60-year history show that trustees of the College have pledged $1,582,900, exceeding their goal of $1.5 million by six per cent; that the members of the President's board of associates pledged $103,061 topping their $75,000 goal by 37 per cent; and that the corporate division is at the 92 per cent mark, having to date raised $1,012,358 of its $1.1 million goal. In addition, the Mercyhurst College community members pledged $ 110,834 or 11 per cent over their $100,000 goal; the College's Student Government Association reached its set target of $25,000; and 84 per cent ($753,520) of a $900,000 goal has been pledged to the Campaign by miscellaneous friends of the College.

"The pace for this most ambitious fund raising effort in Mercyhurst history was set early in the campaign by the board of trustees and heightened during the internal phase of the drive which brought in $2.3 million during the first three months of the drive!'
In corporate pledges received to date, contributions have come from 86 members of Erie's business and industrial sector, while $72,000 has been raised in the Corry community in support of Mercyhurst's satellite campus located at 16 Park Place in Corry, Pennsylvania. According to College President Dr. William P. Garvey, "The pace for this most ambitious fund raising effort in Mercyhurst history was set early in the campaign by the board of trustees and heightened during the internal phase of the drive which brought in $2.3 million during the first three months of the drive'' Mercyhurst's $4.5 million Campaign will support goals to establish a $2.5 million financial aid endowment for Mercyhurst students, $1.2 million for academic development in the areas of library acquisitions, computer expansion, and laboratory equipment, while $800,000 in additional funds will
22

be allocated for the enlargement of Mercyhurst's Zurn Hall auditorium. Commenting on the first year fund totals, Garvey said, "We are, indeed, gratified with the support we have received to date from our Erie friends and Mercyhurst family. The generosity we have received from the Erie and Corry communities in this first year of the drive surpasses all of our expectations. While we felt confident from the beginning that our drive would be successful, the pace at which we gained support has been tremendously gratifying. We are very pleased to be able to say that the Campaign for Mercyhurst College continues to gain momentum in our cityf Garvey added. jane Theuerkauf, Campaign chairman, said that college officials will now begin a concentrated effort over the next two years in the areas of alumni and parent giving and in foundation support. 'This was our year to seek the support of the Erie community and this is where our Campaign volunteers and professionals have spent their greatest energies. We will now concentrate on reaching our goals in these last three categories to achieve our $4.5 million campaign goal." Theuerkauf said that Mercyhurst College alumni have pledged 32 per cent ($79,803) of their three year $250,000 goal, and parent support is likewise expected to climb from its present total of $11,295 to $50,000 by the end of 1987. Theuerkauf noted that Mercyhurst officials have already begun a vigorous effort among foundations whose first year support totaled $105,200 of a three year $500,000 projected goal. The Mercyhurst drive is under the leadership of five trustees — Ms. Theuerkauf as chairman and Charles H. Bracken as vice chairman. J. Robert Baldwin, Dr. George J. D'Angelo, and Albert F. Duval are serving as honorary chairmen of the Campaign.
