Shane Discusses Campus Issues

"LIVING-LEARNING CENTERS" TO REPLACE DORMS i
by Cathy Stevenson
Many - activities for j dorm residents are planned with heavy emphasis on students taking part in the planning. Among those things planned, stated Sr. "Miriam, are social events,! education events, vocational events and trap sessions with faculty members in the dorms. 'gK MM. Sex and drug education are also being considered, stated Sr. Miriam, but all programs will be carried out, on a very informal basis. No lecture-type programs are planned! : f Asked about co-ed dorms, Sr. Miriam explained that in order to have a co-educational dormitory, the school would first have to build "We must offer one male and one female dorm," explained Sr. Miriam J '* ) ||gj § In retrospect, S r i Miriam stated that she can not see building new dorms due to the "impersonal living" that! they represent. # to # Sr. Miriam would rather see more townhouses and apartments built for students. | jf Next year, three more units of apartments will be available to students, making a total fof 30 apartments. Mercyhurst apartments will remain open to both male and female students, with the Briggs townhouses remaining female only. i j J& .

As a result of an exchange of informatiory the narcotics officers obtained four search warrants through District Justice Elliot LeFaiver. Further comments on the case are not in order since the matter is currently being resolved in the courts, where a motion has been made for suppression of the evidence." Another issue discussed was the recommendation by student government that the College not rehire Mr. Herring as Activities Director and that R.U.S. discontinue; paying the Activities Director's salary next year. The concern among many students is that this recommendation is being ignored and that Mr. Herring will be rehired. % J I " >| | President Shane stated that ."R.U.S.* was asked to make a recommendation, the college would make the final decision".

After long deliberation, the Board decided to seek to improve lines of communication between the Board and the student body, faculty, and administration. jSome recommendations, now i n operation, are: IP I 1 |$ (1) the release of summaries of Board meetings to the Merciad;
(2) campus visitation program by Trustees and families; and (3) that students? and ^faculty members at alternate Board meetings will discuss particular segments of College life in order to better acquaint the Board with the College and what is taking place. Besides these issues, Dr. Shane also discussed the channels;of authority at Mercyhurst and reorganization in the administration.

Novel Reflects
\ W o m a n ' s
A fine novel, which presents a woman's point of view and which is enjoying a revival, is The Awakening by Kate Chopin, first published in 1899. The story of one woman's search|for herself is weaved into a reflective, sensuous texture of words and images, , J * Chopin's novel met with opposition in 1899 and had remained known only ho students of American literature until the recent ^increase in attention to women writers opened The Awakening to a larger audience. Chopin's contemporaries found the novel's treatment of infidelity shockingly immoral and, consequently, failed?;to evaluate its literary worth. W Today considered by many scholars as the little American classic which [introduced the attitude of the modern novel, The Awakening is the story of\ Edna Pontellier, a married woman who allows herself to fall in love with another man. This event is only a part of her struggle against convention to discover her essential nature and to refuse to relinquish this \ 'self.'j $ JA| strong, intelligent, ^and sensitive woman, Edna gradually acts to free herself of stifling social obligations (beginning with her weekly "reception day" ior visitors) which initiallyfaroused her dissatisfaction and restlessness. Edna's reflective nature and the influence of MUe Reisz, a misunderstood old woman fwho has J achieved the freedom Ho be herself, render Edna's motivation believable.? jg Chopin's| point of view in relation to her heroine brings the reader into Edna's thoughts and, with the. help of structure and imagery, even evinces the*same reactions the heroine feels simultaneously.

Grand Isle, a summer resort area where the Pontelliers stay for the season (the husband coming only for weekends), becomes identified with Edna as she cultivates an affinity with the sea and beach. Conversely, business-minded, status-conscious New Orleans offers an appropriate setting for conservative attitudes and for Mr. Pontellier's museum5 of a house (where, significantly, Robert and Edna never meet). 5* By| means of* theJ£male characters, Chopin shows the traditionally simplistic reasoning that men use in interpreting the behavior of women.

David is making his first appearance on our stage, but he isn t a stranger to local audiences. & f "The Garden of Eden" will be created and much spectacle is used after Adam and Eve both eat the forbidden fruit. This spectacle change will occur as Adam and Eve leave the Garden of Eden and set out in labor. The second part of The Apple Tree will be "ThejLady or the Tiger?" which is also loaded with music and comedy. The spectacle will consist of black flights and strobic lights, $ which| will be splashed across the stage. Along with this, the're will be a twentyfour member S chorus, with primitive dancing. The costumes will range from gowns to coats or armour. The lead roles in "The Lady or the Tiger?" were given to Christi Warnick and Miket:Weiss.i They are both familiar to our audiences. They were last seen in "Dark of the Moon" as Ma Allen and Mr. Bergan. * f I The last part of The Apple Tree is- "Passionella" which has the most spectacle of the three parts. "Passionella" will be af take-off of the Buzzbie Burkely type Hollywood musicals. It Swill consist of lavishing costumes, and ensemble dancing, accompanied with 1950's tuxedos and gowns. "Passionella" will also consist of mirror balls with psycedelic lights. An eight to fifteen minute movie has been prepared to add to the abundance of spectacle. Included, there will be a take-off with an Elvis Presley type singer complete with an amplified hand microphone and a motor cycle. 1 ^ Smoke pots will be set up and in a | puff of smoke, Ella? will be transformed to "Passionella." Ella spends her evenings watching television; after a hard day's work of sweeping chimneys. She constantly has hopes of becoming a glamerous movie star, which she will be in her change to | Passionella.

Mother Borgia always insisted on a high standard ot intellectual and cultural achievement for 'her girls'. In fact, it was Mother Borgia herself who directedfthe schools first musicals—The Wild Kosei and Maid of Toy ko. 5 T S She also developed Erics first high-level cultural series and brought in the fi best speakers, musicians, and writers that she could tfind. All her coiw; temporaries remember her love of elegance and her insistence that Mercyhurst stand for quality and excellence. Her interest in the finer things| of life can be seen in the beautiful N furniture that exists in the Foyer, the I rooms just outside of the Chapel. r'She also firmly believed that** every Mercyhurst graduated should always represents theg perfect lady. In fact, Mother Borgia used to give monthly speeches on goodjetiquettc, and shei personally^ supervised ceremonies such as May Day, the Christmas Dinner, and Graduation, to insure that they were done to perfection. It J was afteri the 19561 graduation, in fact, that Mother Borgia suffered her stroke which finally led to her death six years later in her home town of DuBois of February 11, 1962. Even after her stroke, she retained the title Dean and was always consulted by Sister Mary Esther, who was the .''Acting Dean." fMercyhurst always came first for Mother Borgia.

Borgia convent and school. Always a 4 Egan. | H builder', she immediately began planning for new facilities. At this point, Bishop Gannon entered the picture. As Mother Borgia later recalled the situation in her dictated memoirs to Sjster Mary John Bosco i n August 1958 £ Our first thought*was to add a wing to the existing building and an architect had been engaged to draw up plans that would house at least one hundred Sisters. Before! these plans could? be executed, Bishop Gannon, on a visit to Titusville, said to Mother Borgia, "Insteadr of sbuilding here, ai e why don't| you $150,000.00 Gary Bukowski and ;come to Erie?" The jj invitation^ was proposed to the KAKLY YEARS Mother Borgia was born in members of the corporation the DuBois,v Pennsylvania, the following summer and most of the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael senior members seemed to favor Egan. She received jgher the suggestion. In the first place elementary and secondary our headquarters in the schooling in DuBois and her Episcopal city would be adcollege degrees from Catholic vantageous.

John Harkins \ Seeks Nomination
John Harkins announces that he will seek nomination to a seat on the Erie School Board in the May 15th Primary election. A Democrat, Harkins has filed on both tickets andlhis names ap pears {fifth on each ballot. Presently ^studying toward a degree in secondary education at Mercyhurst College, he is in his third yeaHasfa social studies major there. ^Harkins, a 196'J graduate of Academy High School, believes that the atmosphere/within the Junior and Senior High Schools has not improved since his experience with the disturbances of 1967, 68, and 69. Citing discipline £in the schools and the morale problem among J employees and professional staff ofothe school district as-his maior concerns, the 21 year-old student promises to campaign:vigorously to improve the current school situation. M fRecognizing tbat| the Board would be |improved with \ the addition of? a recent, proud graduate of the troubled schools as a voice in current and future policy decisions, Harkins states that he is eageif to accept the challenge to work toward uniting the ? enthusiasm ot all involved in the Erie Public schools and to speak in behalf of the students. & f I Admitting the complex nature oi problems in Urban ^Public Education across the country,| Harkins is encouraged by the active interest of the many and various parent-action groups and PTA's in Erie. He feels although there are no easy solutions to the ' problems of the schools, that if these groups can work in harmony with the professionals of the School District fand meet these problems head-on, that£ Erie should be able to achieve a school system that is second to none. ' £_ The son of City Councilman Bernard J.i(Babe) Harkins and nephew ofeteacherjLeo Harkins, John points out thathe is on his own and will speak for himself on the issues independent of any group, organization, or individual. JBf He would work to improve sports and recreation programs in the system and strive to unite the School District recreation program with | t h e City s Recreation^program to expand services, improve efficiency, eliminate duplication at a reduced cost in this area. He pledges to be an energetic, vieilant Board member if elected and would be available at any time and place to meet with anyone? concerned* about trie school system! k Educational Progress is his platform, unity is his theinu

on the work planned and to provide a sizable income for the community was approved. It provided facilities for both high school and college classes. The estimated cost was approximately; five hundred thousand dollars. 8 Moving to a new city, and finding the right location for a school was only the beginning of Mother Borgia's problems. Securing the necessary financing was the next large hurdle. With the help of a banker friend^ Mr. Frank Wallace, Mother Borgia arranged for Mercyhurst to float some bonds. -*As ^Mother Borgia explained in her memoirs: In our eagerness to get started, the Community accepted a suggestion of Mr. Frank Wallace, the President of the Second National Bank oflErie, that we float a bond issue of $400,000.00 that would pay four percent interest. .He would personally assume responsibility for the bonds, i.e. guarantee their payment... t Because of the low rate oft interest it was not easy to interest the public in a four percent bond, so they had to be sold through friendly |channels. This entailed approaching individual purs chasers instead of having the entire issue sold through a bond company. Sales came slowly. It was largely duejto the untiring efforts of Sister M. Collette Brown, Sister M. Monica Fisher. Sister M. Pierre Wilbert, ana Sister M. Celestine Weber that we were able to dispose of a small portion ($100,000.00) of the bonds. This meant constant and tiresome walking on the streets of Erie and other cities, wherever a prospective buyer could be found. The balance ;of the issue, $300,000.00 Jwere used as collateral for bank loans which we had to'contract to meet the monthly payments of |lhe contractors as they became due.

iron and steel. Nothing was known about this metal until the World Wars. It was found that the heavy artillery of the Germans stood up much better than that oft the United States. And after much investigation,* it was found that the Germans hadiused a metal called molybdenum* to$ toughen their steel for long barrages. ' This is about the time that John and Samuel Weber, brothers to Sister M. Regina Weber, and uncles to Sister M. Celestine Weber, became interested in Climax Colorado. It was because of their interests) in. prospecting that they found the ore that contained molybdenum. These men formed a company to handle the processing of the ore and they named it "Climax Molybdenum." Sam and John, however, needed capital to develop their company. Meanwhile, the Sisters of Mercy fhad started to build Mercyhurst) and the Weber Brothers j wanted to i help the Sisters. A few years earlier, they had persuaded Mother:M. Pierre, Bursar of the Community and Mother M. Borgia, Superior, to invest in their gold mines. As Mother -Borgia later remembered: The gold mine shares could be had for $150.00 a share, and it so happened that the two skeptical nuns decided to risk $600.00 they had made on a money-raising activity land to secure four shares. However, the gold mine, like so many of^ the Weber projects, did not come through as quickly as expected, and for the moment, the $600.00 was looked upon as an unwise investment. Over the years, however, molybdenum*rose in value and John Weber urged the Sisters to exchange the tfour gold certificates for five hundred shares of Climax? Molybdenum, which was then selling at $1.00 a share. The Sister followed! his advice and 500 shares of Climax Molybdenum stock replaced the gold shares in the safe. As the MERCYHURST ACQUIRES need for war materials ceased, so VALUABLESTOCK Another example of Mother did the need for molybdenum. Then in 1933, the unexpected Borgia's* financial astuteness,

The Mercyhurst crewiteam made history once again last Saturdayl when they defeated Grand;Valley Stateyn both the Junior Varsity 8 and Varsity 8 races. This was the first time a Laker crew team defeated G.V.S. The J.V.*s won by a slim two second margin (time 7:23) and the varsity won by five seconds (time7:00). \ The J.V. boat with John Daly, Bow, John Wojdyla, Pat Rankin, Fred Adamus, * Floyd Schiecengost, Dave Collins, John Beck, Bob Dartnell-stroke, and Gerry Sica-coxie, jumped off to a short lead at the start of the race. Grand Valley State pulled even at midway but under the stern leadership of Sica, they outsprinted GVS and won the race by a quarter-length. Alan Copeland, No. 6 oar for the Laker IVarsity^ is this week's recipient of;- the guts award because of the minor miracle he performed in Saturday's second race. Copeland had the misfortune of having his seat breaking about one minute into the race. Yep, you guessed it, helliterally rowed the lastllSOO meters of the event on his butt! This is quite a feat, considering what the bottom of a racing shell looksjtand feels like. | Along) with Copeland in the Varsity boat| was Jay Marcinowski-bow; Jack Freidel, Anthony Murphy, Lamont Prince, Alan Belovarac-stroke; ana Frank Sands-coxie^ They pulled away to a fast start and looked as if they were going to run away with the race until Copeland's stunt. $ The Hurst boati synchronized and, regained the lead with 200 meters remaining, then went on to win the race by threequarters of a length. I Coach Dave Shimpeno and his crew are on their way today to Marietta, Ohio, for the big one, the Mid-American Rowing Regatta. This is the high point of their season and T'm sure they would like nothing more than to come back clad in medals.
