Ralph Sortino did not contact McAndrew either positively or negatively within the i designated period and therefore is not eligible.

Constitutional Revision Passed By! R.U.S.
by Anne Mashinic
Throughout the year there has been considerable criticism over the disunity found in our student government. At last, Wednesday night's meeting, however, the body acting as a whole passed the constitutional revision by]a vote of 31-1 with 5 abstentions. This major accomplishment which calls for a change in the selection of student representatives was constructed by Alexis Walker, Secretary of R U.S. ^ ? Initially, the constitutional change consists of the following seven revisions: MM P (1) the establishment of five student wards on the basis of population from which seven representatives will be chosen for each. These consist of Ward A Law Enforcement and Sociology; WardB - Art, Drama, and Music; Ward C|- Biology, Chemistry, General Science, ,Home Economics, and Math; Ward D Elementary| Education and English; Ward E ;3 Business, French, History, Political Science, Psychology and Spanish. (2) the election of one freshman representative in the fall of each year from each of the five wardsS (3) that R.U.S. officers be nonvoting members? of the* College senate. ^5 £ Jfr (4) that a standing committee structure be designed with Ihese possibilities: v t ;$&t. ft afCultural Committee b. Social Committee c. Academic Committee d. Community-Centered | Committee (5) nominations for officers will be made at a meeting of students, and nominees will be given 24 hours to accept or reject the nomination. I (6) that nominations for representatives be held on a common day, and nominees be given 24 hours to accept or reject the nomination. ^ £ (7)1 that election! of representatives be held after election of officers. | Missi Walker sees the overall effect of these seven revisions in three significant areas: "accountability," "void between resident:and day students'*, and "academic affairs." | "Accountability," states?'Miss Walker, "is important because of its influence on performance." By electing representatives from small academic departments rather than respective classes, a greater responsibility will be established. In the past the student has had little criteria on which to select his? representative. |Now, however, the close association between department members will allow the student to choose 7 the Imost capable representative. A more equalized association of resident* students* andgday students within each department will result in the selection of more day students than in the {past. Miss Walker believes that "with the growing percentage of day •students at Mercy hurst it is vital that they be given a significant role in functional organizations."# Miss Walker states that "any school government must ?be aware that its scope cannot be limited to social activities. Cultural community $and academic affairs .are equally relevant." Under this new revision the R.U.S. representative, having been chosen from the small academic department, will be more sympathetic to that particular department's criticisms^and suggestions. Not only will there be a|closer ex change of ideas? between the representatives and those he represents but also between the department's faculty* and the representative. 15 | By providing greater responsibility, more equalized representation, and a wider range of interests, the I constitutional revision will undoubtedly have a very positive effect on our student government. Alexis Walker, the Constitutional Revision Com! mittee, and the R.U.S* members who supported this change should be highly commended.

OUT
by Cathy Stevenson
There is a saying that goes "physician heal thyself." With all of the recent'publicity given to the Mercyhurst Law Enforcement Program, one would think that* the new major is a success. The irony lies in the fact that the program is becoming a farce. In a recent interview, Mr.fRobert A. Sturm, assistant head of the department stated, "law enforcement has attracted a lot of lowacademic students." Mr. Sturm went on to say that screening as to sincere students is 4 necessary. 'Are they serious or just looking for an easy degree?t • One way to demonstrate their sincerity, stated Mr. Sturm, is that they must study. The prgram began with two men who were more than qualified to initiate a successful Law Enforcement Department. Mr. Sturm had five years of experience coaching, teaching and counciling prisoners. Mr. James Kinnane, the head of the Department, would serve as the model and authority of the program. After years of working for law enforcement, Mr. Kinnane never drew a gun on a ny arrest. | | m The two man team taught the courses, with Mr. Sturm lecturing from research and Mr. Kinnane acting as the authority to answer questions. | i The program began with the concept of educating students ' interested |not just in law enforcement, but in justice," said Mr. Sturm. To do this Mr. Sturm explained, the "whole social context of crime and enforcement should be explained.". ..... ,j . { The first term of law enforcement did just that, but now it is taught from the policeman's viewpoint. The social concepts have been forgotten.| $ "The law enforcement^program is super-police oriented," said Mr. Sturm. ! Also during the first term of law enforcement, if physical fitness was not met, students were to be suspended from the program. The physical fitness requirement was dropped along with the program's other major points. "They just died," said Mr. Sturm. According to the original syllabus, all students in the program were to follow these requirements: | if 1) proper conduct and behavior of the law, on or off campus. This applies to felonies. "The least we can expect from law enforcement majors is that they obey the law," said Mr. Sturm. -2.) emotional balance. The program originally looked for students § who were able to control themselves in crisis situations. 3 "Guns and mace," stated Mr. Sturm, "should not be the only way a policeman can defend himself.'' 3) physical requirements. All law enforcement agencies shave physical fitness requirements and "weight in relation to height" requirements. A policeman in good physical shape is less likely to shoot his gun4 'he uses minimum force,'' explained Mr. Sturm.f Periodic screening of all law enforcement majors is a necessity. A change in the law enforcement program is an absolute necessity. How can a program which so badly needs re-evaluation of its own values, judge and enforce the laws they expect others to maintain? ' Perhaps "physician heal|thyself," should really say "Future policemen, look at thyself."

R.U.S. Attendance Records
Every year the student body is asked to choose", new student officers and representatives. However, students are never given any real criterion to judge candidates.

Name:

Listed below are the attendance records of this year's representatives. There were a total of 13 R.U.S. and Senate Meetings this year. The R.U.S. constitution states that I "Any representative |who misses three Representative Union of Students meetings without sending an alternate will be dropped from the Union. Also,

only four alternates may be sent by any one representative during the course of the year." { If one believes in a strictaconstitutional interpretation. 17 R.U.S. members should have been dropped for missing 3 or more meetings and 1 membeifforhaving too many alternates. This would eliminate half of the present R.U.S. members.

By advocating that! RUS meetings and offices be moved directly into the Student Union, he feels that the present sense of alienation between students and student government* might be removed. Hopefully, this, along with intensified publicity at tempts, will help to draw Mercyhurst's Day students closer to the school. I * H I Keeney feels that RUS has "bent too| far with the administration" and sees the 1973-74 season as a|'time for action". I Presently ?RUS4 held a 1 |3 representation in the College Senate, the other 2 3 segment shared by administration and Marty Keeney, sophomore Law faculty.

With RUS elections at hand, it is important that|all students have carefully evaluated each candidate before! their final voting decision tomorrow.

VThis tradition ^existed right up until 1967, when the last May crowning was held.

Social History - First Student Union, jSchool Song, iMay Crowning
by Gary Bukowski %
One of the most important parts of Mercyhurst social history was the creation of the |Roost' in 1934 as a campus social center. Under, the helpful guidance of Doctor Donatelli, an old chicken house in the back campus was transformed into} a little student union. It was a place where students could; socialize—and even smoke. It was the only place on i campus where a girl was allowed to$smoke, and Mercyhurst was one of the few Catholic Women's Colleges that permitted smoking at all. The interior of?the! 'Roost'; was described bygone enthusiastic student in this manner: % The Roost, as a place. came into being as the result of the collegians' insistent requests to Mother Superior for a place M recreation outside of the -school buildings. * During the autumn of 1936, several of Ithe most enthusiastic lRoosters decided to band together, redecorate the interior, and establish the Roostf on the sbasis of an organization. Our Dean, Mother Borgia, heartily approved of the idea, stimulated our interests, and donated the striking red and black linoleum *which |now covers the-floor. We all worked hard. Cans of black and red paint, brushes, mops and yards of* chintz flourished the entire week preceding Alumnae Weekend, for which occasion our week was completed. The^result was stupendous! Recreation ^in a rustic yet modern environment was made possible. A greatjfire roared in the white-washed brick fireplace. Red| chintz curtains hung .at the windows, and lamps of all types illuminated the beamed ceiling. P a t s y ; Morin decorated* the walls with pastel profiles of -the members. The Alumnae were charmed and the Roosters preened their feathers. Officers were elected, J rules and memberships established, and
