Inflation Hit
a It hadito happen. With rising food costs it was only a matter of time before the SagaiFood Service of Mercyhurst was affected. The following letter explains it all to resident students:



An Open Letter To Board Students | The current beef shortage and the continually rising |costs of other food products has caused us at Saga, and institutional food services elsewhere, to| reassess our food policy. At Mercyhurst, our policy has been to provide the best possible meals and food variety at the least possible cost to you. si am positive that you are aware of the problems involving the American food industry, from shortages due to exports; weather;^ general crop conditions, including frosts, floods, andtfreetes; and government restrictions on growing and Therefore, in order to hold the line on your board|costs, some modification ht our food service
nricin2. iSr

program will have to be made. It is impossible to designate specific changes at this time. || Our policy of unlimited seconds will remain in force for all those items that are menued. f The experts tell us that even afterj the¥freeze is lifted, the market«will still be in short supply. Many items other than meat are also hard to come by. Many new high protein recipes have been developed and tested. You will find new ideas on the menus. We urge you to try them. We at Saga Foods share your concern over the inflation in food ! prices. I assure you that market conditions will be re-evaluated as they change and we will make every effort to continue to provide you with!the best meals and service at a reasonable cost. Donald Cornman ^Director, Saga Food Service P.S. Tnere is one happy note. Look for Italian Night on September 27 in the Mercyhurst cafeteria. F *,

While an increasing number of jobs and traditions, from repairing television sets to the awarding of sports scholarships, has participated in the trend toward equal treatment of the sexes, the institution of language has seriously lagged behind. Many languages, including English, slight and even intimidate the female while favoring the male. Two vital areas in the English language which require change are personal pronouns and forms of address for women. f Standard English proves inaccurate and inadequate in many cases, but new terms are required for a more important reason. Psychologists point out that labeling a referent of indeterminate sex or both sexes masculine suggests that personality is solely a quality of the male. This practice especially debilitates the developing selfimage of little girls while unfairly reinforcing little boys' egos. Along with privileges and responsibilities conferred upon boys only, language subtly informs young women of their secondary worth in the eyes of society^ -g t S: *4 Of several suggestions for additional singular personal pronouns, the proposed triad of common pronouns tey, ter, tern is perhaps the least extraordinary answer to the problem of either slighting females by using a masculine form m general cases or clumsily repeating "he-she," 'Sier-himself," etc | Tey, | ter, tem nicely parallels the common gender in the plural. So, the use of the singular form would easily substitute the faulty but popular use of the plural in such constructions as "If someone calls, tell them 111 be in at five.'' i £ Jfe: 1 I Whereas personal pronouns sometimes ignore the female completely, conventional forms of address always identify a woman by her marital status. The uniform term "Ms.," since it is too often used only with reference to single women, has not been given a fair chance to counter the assumption that it is necessary jto know whether or not a woman is or has been married in order to speak or write to her. Joining in the abuse,! the Mercyhurst* schedule of courses assigns the title "Ms." only to the single women of the faculty, and apparently without a prior poll of all the female professors as to their preference for the traditional "Miss" or "Mrs. "or the new form of address. Wg. j M • j£ The problem posed here is not only a matter of equality of the sexes in language but necessarily one of accuracy in grammar and terminology. Because of the two, it is not enough to maneuver around the touchy parts by repeating "the student," "the applicant," etc., as does the Mercyhurst catalog (except for the business, science-math, and political science departments which unnecessarily use the masculine gender at least once). The addition of a common gender for the singular personal pronoun and a serious use of a single form of address for all women, though these changes may not arrive for some time, will benefit those of us who speak the language as well as the language itself.

sites of interest particularly the Bureau of Standards and the Naval Astronomy Observatory in D.C. And this is not all, as further excursions are subject to group interest, consensus and willingness of participation visiting museums, planetariums observatories and places of geological interest, many of which are located jp or near, famous national parks. I You may think such excursions will cost you a lot but expenses are kept at a minimum. Most financing for such activities is covered by the club treasury. For example, last year's trip at Easter time cost each person $10.00 for 5 days,and 4 nights, cam Ding f equipment I food and sundries provided, r j So in conclusion, if the clubs sounds interesting to you, and we hope it J does, there will be a membership meeting at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 25, in 202Z, the Earthy Space Science lab, during which there will be further discussion on the activities lor the year of 73-74.?There will be ho obligation to join and coffee donuts and cider will be served after the meeting. This is a good opportunity I for Freshmen and others to meet new people that may \ possi bly fhave a profound influence on one's life and future. After all, how many other ways are there to meet life long college friends than through a fraternal organization TTiis would also be a good opportunity for |undecided majors to become familiar with the content and the people involved ?in I the I Earth-Space Science department at Mercyhurst especially the two people who are responsible for the club's organization, Sr. Matthew and Mr. David Thomas. Please don't deny yourself the ever important influence of socialization given by youri peers |in your college education. Don't miss this opportunity for personal growth and satisfaction for there is no other club quite like this one at Mercyhurst.




Director of Testing notifies the student | of results and! also the Registrar, Business Office land Advisor if credit has been earned. Student pays tuition! fees at the Business Office for each course in i which credit was earned. £m Student takes tuition clearance form % to ^Registrar who records credit on transcript. For further information contact: David A. DeSante.





If you do, we're glad because it just so happens that J you fulfill both of the | necessary prerequisites for becoming a member of the Earth-Space Science Club. The E.S.S.C. is open to anybody in any major field as long as he or she is a Mercyhurst student. The basic purpose of the club is to combine recreation, provided by£ offcampus activities and weekend camping trips, with an ? intellectual broadening experience. The club will help to develop your knowledge of the earth and, of outer space, and of the tools used for exploring them. gLast year being the inaugural year of the club, participants in its various activities traveled overl£2,500 miles visiting four states. Last years activities included a visit to the Carnegie-Mellon Museum in Pittsburgh along with a week long Easter camping trip to West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland during which such sites astthe Seneca Rocks in Mouth of Seneca, j West Virgi ni a,. the N atio nal Radio Astronomy! Observatory | in Greenbank, West Virginia, the historical Harper's Ferryf in *" Virginia and Gettysburg in Pennsylvania were visited. Believe it or not the first year of the tclub was basically organizational. This years activities will encompass a greater span of area and interest than did last year's activities. The activities planned so far for this year include: First, a weekend camping trip to NewfYork state on September 28, 29 and §30 for which we have a choice oi 8-10 sites provided by the New York State Geological Association; secondly, there is a weekend camping trip planned for sometime before or by November during which time! we will visit Toronto, Canada; and finally our Easter trip will take us to the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Maryland, Virginia area and at this time we will also spend approximately two days in the Washington D.C. area visiting

There is a rumor making the rounds on campus concerning the possibility of not holding the 1973 Intramural Football games on the Louis J. Tullio athleticfield.This corner would like to make a stand concerning this topic because I see a hot and heavy debate arising in the future net ween students and administration. I know the administration will contend that the football games in the outfield cause wear and tear on the field and leave only patches of grass and potholes after the season. I also know, from experience, that the financial aspect of fixing up the field for spring baseball is a burden to the powers that be. In addition, I am aware that it is primarily a baseball field. These are all valid reasons for not permitting the MFL to tangle on the field. However, the fact remains that the Tullio athleticfieldwas built not only to serve as a baseball field, but also as a recreation area for the students of Mercyhurst College!! *-,i • & q The intramural games could easily be moved to the St. Mark's field, or for that matter, any flat area with approximately 2,450 square yards. But it's the principle that's in question. Mercyhurst is gradually getting to the point where we will have all of our own Facilities for use in all sports. So if they are already there, let's use them. It would tend to get very disheartening for players and fans to trudge up to St. Mark's and have to pass the vacated Tullio athletic field. j | | I ?. IE i i i. £ i ;$| m Enough said, I hope so—well see this weekend. Muhammed Ali is making a valiant effort to regain his ousted heavyweight 'championship crown. His recent 12-round split decision victory over Ken Norton avenged an earlier loss, and also showed his followers that some of the speed in his hands and feet is still there. It is a shame that the best three and one-half years of his career;! had to bet spent needlessly in courtrooms. But beware Frazier and Foreman, Ali may be back for good, i *

In last week's article, Hurst Sports Boom, this writer failed to mention the ,most important outset to any sports program anywhere; and that's intramural sports. It; is intramural sports that relieve the frustrations of tests, teachers, girls, and running out of underwear in the middle of the week, for the average college student. Intra murals are a tremendous cross section of exjocks, un-athletic types, and your average student just playing for the hell ofiit. But regardless of the which one you are, each game is played with enthusiasm and furor of any N.F.L. game you see on T.V. Last years M.F.L. super bowl was more exciting to those involved than any* Dolphins 1 Washington game ever. J ~* ?S| It is with this in mind that vou should read this year's Mercyhurst Football League (M.F.L.) Preview. $p 1| # This will undoubtedly J be the M.F.L.'s strongest year. Ittwill have a record number of teams and participants. (Last year's champs the Rebels will be back stronger than ever.) ^The always tough Mother-Truckers will be hitting harder than ever and in quest of that championship which for them has always been so close, but then so far. The Hot Tuna's will be rearranged a bit, but definitely contenders as usual.! John Holt and company are back and hope to avenge last year's Super Bowl loss. Some new teams who will \ be in contention are Rex's Raiders, Ten Rats, and a host of new freshman entrants, y .^JS '$* S i am making!no predictions, conceding the fact that anything can happen in flag football. But I will say that the Rebels again are the team to beat this year. They are the only team to own a M.F.L. championship in the £ three-year existence of the league. This incredible record is due mainly to the three original Rebels, Ralph Sortino, Ray Feinberg, and Jack Riley. In the past two years the Sortino to Riley combination has been the most" explosive and potent j offensive tpunch in the league (in the first year Sortino played defensive back and it was McPoland to Riley) • Then *on defense Jack Riley teams kips with Roy Feinberg to comprise the! stingiest defense 'in the teague. These guys along w i < fine supposing cast wfii^ defense of their ch*m^ j within the T x t ^ e T l although the odds are L the Rebels can make it four row. Their chances of S hinges greatly on the g o f i of Ralph Sortino, the avaiLJ of Roy Feinberg, for w S games and (he tore the healthE J

So as the M.F.L. sea^n proaches it looks like there be many tough teams and a« horse here and there, but Rebels are still the team to L As Ralph Sortino put it •'wj? lose this year, we've decide! retire the name Rebels from lntramiiral^roster but dai wouldn't it be dynamite to it a perfect four years."

If you ever mosey on up past Baldwin Hall some afternoon, just before, and or after dinner, you'll see a bunch of guys running around on Louis J. Tuhicfield. To the left fis a groupi of midget football players J Upon discovering that those guvs in the field are the Mercyhurst baseball team, memories of last Spring may incline you to \ keep on stepping and\go check out the young grid stars. But the closer you get, theSrbetter they look (and none of them use lady Clairol) and|damned" if* there aren't people running and hustling and just down right putting out. * Desire is the word coach Joe Cook pins on this type of goings on, and he feels the 1973-74 Lakers have plenty of it. There is a lot of ability thrown in there too, and what a combination that can make. i The Lakers have experience this year, something obviously lacking in last year's club. Of the sixteen losses, seven were by one run, three by|two, and one by three runs. It always seems a mental era or fa strikeout would appear at an untimely situation for the first year club. But Cook, a man who himseli has played professional ball in the Red Sox chain, and a well known coach**of all ;iage groups for 14 years does not care for mental lapses, nor does he flirt with losers. * f'The big difference in this years team is their whole attitude about baseball", he says, They want to play and better yet, they want to win. The arms are better this year, (Jones Brothers to the

rescue) and the big men, Buzz Brandon, Howie Neemen, are hitting for average to complement their power. The ? pitching is by far I steadier with Bobbv WiesmUler and Danny Hill settling down from last year and the addition of Carl California (no relation to the -state i of) to the staff. I I * After hearing this great revelation I had to see if it was fact or fable with my own eyes. So Sunday afternoon I bounced over to Tullio field; (I had a rock in my shoe) The scheduled event was a a double header with Niagara College, but it turned out to.jbe almost a tripleheader; | (the second game went 13 innings). Niagara was' 16-2 last spring and was just fresh off of a double header sweep of Buffalo State University. These two schools are among the best in the East in small col lege | baseball. L; half expected us to get killed until I rose up over the hillfin front of Baldwin and saw people at Louis J. Tullio field watching jjMercyhurst play baseball; and they were cheering !| "Hot Damn" I thought to myself, maybe we're good this year.£ 1 ;Well as the games progressed my toes got cold but* my enthusiasm stayed hot. There were not many mental errors, very few unearned runs,iand desire was writtenPacross every players chest as big as* the word LAKERS I We split the doubleheader, dropping the opener| 2-0 and picking up the second one 5-4 in 13 innings. But you couldn't help but feel satisfied at seeing a good day

of Baseball.raj 1 I mm. *l Dave Wieczorick had a pair of key hits in the victory, tying it in the eighth with a single and winning it inthe 13th with a triple. Brandon also checked in with an inside the |park| HOMERUN to add to the scoring cause. The defense was good, the catching was much improved, but * the brightest spot of the day had to be the pitching. Hill and^Wiesmiller giving up three hits each and California two. The trip also had 21 strikeouts between them. jjij When asked the Big question, "Cant Mercyhurst win! the District", Coach Cook thought a moment, then simply said, "No, we're two or three players away yet"; he went|on to say: 'Tam shootingf for *al better than 500 season however, and there's no reason why we can't, in spite of our tough schedule". (The Lakers play, i Point iPark, Frost burgh jand Slippery Rock, the one, two, and three teams in the District last spring). I admire Cook's answer, a very good one from a second year college coach. ThetLakers will make^inroads this year, and who knows, along with the ability and desire they already possess, a little luck may creep in and those guys who hang around Tullio field after 4 p.m. may find themselves in a playoff game late next May. * |, Linedrivers: This years team includes six freshmen. . .Coach Cook is joined by Joe Jr. coaching the Lakers and his other son, Kevin is a freshman candidate for the team. Bob Petenelli, was a big help getting the freshmen scheduled, and registered. I hope through his guidence there won't be any ineligibilities this: spring. The Lakers play Gannon this Saturday at a field yet to be named. Don't miss it! On Sunday they travel to R.I.T. *
