From The Tower:

The Financial Rape Of
byiAl Belovarac
RUS certainly had its share of ups and downs this year, and if the two were in a race, the downs would surely hold a commanding lead. £ . A! budding political scientist researching the difficulties and frustrations of student/governments would have a field day with RUS, which in the past six months has gone through a collage of moods, being active, inactive, reactive and deactive. ip The latest crisis to make its hooded prescence known concerns budget appropriations which thus far have been doled out with a generous though sometimes indiscriminate hand. Suddenly last meeting, however, a shocking realization struck the members like a bolt of lightning. Only $4,500 remain in the coffer and this amid cries of assistance comingffrom all areas of the campus which served only to make matters worse. The swiftly diminishing treasury was assaulted by requests of funds for entertainment, ponds, art shows busses, CEC conventions, and pre-school equipment, all totalling close to $4,300. fWe hope RUS will wake up and realize its treasury is not a pot of gold readily available for anyone who needs some extra cash. | Students pay a $25 activities fee which should be used for and only for student activities. As it stands, their government deprives the students of the full benefits of their own money. As an example, a $550 request to contract "We the People" for a show in the Union was slashed in half, the rest to come from the student union's regular fund, thus cheating the students out of some other activity.
:• * * * | \' H

*We think it ridiculous and absurd for RUS to be approached for money for the pond, senior art exhibit, and the pre-school. The idea of a pond on the back campus is fantastic, but is it the responsibility of RUS to furnish funds for an improvement that should be funded by the administration? If such a precedent were set, we can see the day when RUS is asked to pay for parking lots, outdoor lighting, and whatever other campus improvement might arise. The senior art exhibit is required by the art department, but why should RUS flip the bill? Is the purpose of RUS to fund academic departments? I I f # * * While the pre-school is indeed a noble and praiseworthy undertaking, there is little reason why RUS must supply the school with equipment when it's the responsibility of the college and the department sponsoring it to fulfill its financial needs. If they can't do it, then it shouldn't be done. % The impression that|RUS is serving the function of a rich uncle willing to give hand outs to eager individuals and groups must be dispelled. Presently,jher treasury is being financially raped for causes that have only the remotest relation to what RUS is supposed to be about. RUS should not be an alternative source of funds for academic departments and numerous groups who can'tffind money elsewhere. $ V

The thousands of dollars under RUS's control must not be squandered with reckless abandon. RUS must learn to say "No!" to money requests which should be directed to another source. Money put into the treasury by the students should be spent only on the students and for the students. Other worthy causes must take a back seat, no matter how important they may be. It's a tragedy that activities musst be curtailed because the money is being used to support causes which should by all rights be taken care of by the administration or academic departments.

Plau You
by Cathy Stevenson
Once upon a time, when Mercyhurst was a small, fall-girl, totally Catholic college, I doubt if the word "dope" was ever mentioned in the school's hallowed halls, but Mercyhurst has finally reached puberty and in the process has also lost her virginity. h i It's no secret that drugs are used on, near, by, to *the left, right, east, west, south, and north of Mercyhurst campus so let us talk about it. V Exactly what rights does a resident student possessing drugs in his room have? Remember the room contract you signed? Your rights as afstudent are {listed in each and as far as drug possession and privacy go- you have no rights. pfcjj Article 2 of the^room contract rea ds as follows: ;'
