0PEV LETTER

Studentl Center Still Maybe
TO: Members of the Mercyhurst Community FROM: RobertF.Prather| | £ Vice President of Development I RE: College Center > | As you know, we recently engaged the fund-raising firm of Ketch um, Inc.,toconduct a feasibility study to determine if Merchurst College could: raise-the funds necessary to construct a vitally needed College Center, i J|§1 I I I '/ M 1 S3" I * Robert L. Thompson, vice president of Ketchum, made a report on the study at the most recent meeting of the Board of Trustees. Among the very encouraging aspects of the report was the fact that both Mercyhurst and President Shane enjoy excellent reputations in the Erie community, f i ' f | | I The report also indicated a generally favorable reaction to the construction of a College Center, although mere was some opinion expressed that the real purpose of the Center is to provide a home court for the basketball Lakers. This, of course, is not the primary reason why the Center is planned. None of you in the Mercyhurst family need to be told of the critical need for a center of activities for the entire community; a place where there will be*student government offices, some academic areas, settings to encourage social opportunities, and facilities to meet the physical education and intramural needs of the community. We also need to explore the use of the facility as a? means of encouraging inter-generational dialogue. | % i P p ||f The study revealed that a substantial part of the money needed could be raised from the Erie community. The report also pointed out that a considerably larger sum would have been available were it not for the pressing financial needs of Gannon College and the impending capital campaign to be conducted by the YMCA. After a lengthy discussion following the presentation of; the report, the Board of Trustees voted unanimously to refer the report to the Board's Development Committee for further study and recommendations. The Development Committee is in the process of determining the lowest possible cost at which a satisfactory College Center can meet the needs of the College for years to come. Also, we are seeking additional support both within the Erie community and outside of the community, primarily from foundations and the federal and state government. This support could be in the form of .grants or long-term, low-cost loans. &§£ We will keep you advised as progress is made.

Dorms Open Up
by Marty Keeney
I In a move towards a new maturity in dealing with the resident student, the student policy has passed a recommendation for new hours in the dorms. Hating to have someone hold me on the edge of my seat, I'll pass them on to you immediately. The recommended hours are as follows: 1 $ 1 i f f Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday hours would be from 1 p.m. to 1 a.m. Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, 1 p.m. to 2 a.m. Now at first£ glance, you conservative Nixonites might say "shocking, more free love in the dorms." OK...being a Liberalist [g(of whom there's no one personification, Thank God), you could be heard yelling, "If they're gonna...they're gonna. We shouldn't even have hours." True, and bravo for both sides, at first glance that is. What the student policy has done, using the good arguments from both, is devise a set of dorm hours that allow a student to enjoy the freedom he so rightly deserves, but set him a guideline to remind him that any good thing can be misused. Need I say more, except bravo to the student policy committee for taking the time and effort they did for a donp policy that satisfies all parties without compromising principles held dear to any student, administrator and ohg yes, parents! Let us hope it is passed all the way through. < P .S. That is those people that pay both of you.

NEWS BRIEFS REPORTED
by T.M. Cat
Jingle BUI? Hie rumor that Director of Student Affairs, Ken Billedy, is moonlighting as a department store Santa Claus led me to his home last Saturday morning. Mrs. Billedy told me that her husband was not it. Just as I asked where he was, a little boy came running up to Ids mother, screaming, "Mommy, the Santa Claus suit is gone from the closet! Daddy promised me that he would take me with him the next time he took the suit to Santa!" Blushing a brighter red than Rudolph's nose, Mrs„Billedy said that\ she would tell Ken that I stopped by and quickly shut the door. If Billedy is really only taking the suit to Santa, does that make Kenanelf? | H|, Announcement I m The Public Relations Office is sponsoring a moustache contest. Prizes will be awarded on the basis of number of moustaches in a department. 1 ; , "The purpose of the contest/' said PR woman Maggie O'Dally, "is to encourage a friendly spirit of competition among the departments." i ? ] All the details for judging have not been| worked| out yet, but Maggie said she wanted to announce the contest now so that the men can start growing their moustaches. \ Some provisions will have to be made for the smaller departments. Also, the question of whether women can wear false moustaches will have to be decided. Maggie said this might be possible if the women would wear them 24 hours a day, seven days a week until the contest is over. In current standings, the Home Ec Department is at the bottom of the list with no moustaches at all among the faculty or majors. Spanish Anyone? 1 1 For some time now, the Spanish-speaking members of the faculty have been seen entering a waiting car in front of Old Main every Thursday at the lunch hour. Recently, campus Latin America expert, Dr. Erinsam, has been joining them. The rumor isfloatingabout that they are all involved in a plot to restore Allende to power. (This rumor is, of course, preceded by the rumor that a stand-in was killed for the former Chilean ruler, who is now in hiding in the cellar j of Hermano 's Hide-away.) g^ Questioned on the matter, Dr. Erinsam only said "I will neither confirm nor deny the rumors." Another member of the club, Julie Gemm of the Intercultural Studies Department, would not say where the group goes or even admit that the individuals meet. "Warum fragen Sie mich? Ich lehren Deutsch!"|she said. (Translation: "Why fare you asking me? I teach German!") ;**f Spanish teacher Maria Mantea offered an explanation forg the Thursday meetings.* "We enjoy sharing a 5meal and a conversation* in Spanish. We're not mixed up in any Frito Bandito escapade."? W Cat's investigators will (continue to pursue the case. I Macabre Mullings S The course 'Death and Dying" seems to be stimulating thoughts on things that young people don't usually think about. After a tour of a funeral parlor, a campus jock remarked, "Hell, I'm not going to be laid out like • that, with everybody looking in on me. I'm going to be cremated and have my ashes strewn over Shamullio Field." Inspired 5 by a { trip | tot a cemetery, an art major in the course has begun to design tombstones on a commercial basis.

Boys In Band Applauded
by Mark Zine
Paul Iddings, director of the Mercyhurst Drama Department, made his long awaited acting debut in the Erie Civic Theatre's Studio production of "Boys in the Band". In brief, "Boys" deals with a homosexual birthday party given by Michael (Paul Iddings), whose straight college roommate, Alan, makes Ian unexpected appearance. ] The production was a learning experience on two counts. First, it gave insight to the much pseudostereo-typed lifestyles! of homosexuals, and second, it gave those students fortunate enough to be directed by Mr. Iddings, a chance to see why he directs in the manner that he does when compared to 'his stunning performance on stage. Michael's light-hearted entrance gave question to the possible strength and understanding of ^ t h e character. These questions were erased as comedy gave wayf to emotional drama and Paul Idding's Michael unwound!with believable human feelmgs. Michael Weiss, a junior drama major at the Hurst, gave a very credible performance in the part of Larry. Itfwas obvious Mike understood and developed the character to the point where the audience realized the sarcasm and changing moods without brushing it off $ as a • weak character development. Any weak moments were quickly forgotten as outstanding actors caught up the pace. Mention must be given to Rick Muller who played Emory. This sad-tragic character gave audience members a sense of guilt as he belittled himself in the manner close-minded people ridiculed him. And Michael Morris' performance of Harold went unflawed throughout. His strength as a character and actor goes without question. The other lote-worthy cast members were David Held, Jim Roberts, Don Redd, Tom Colbridge, and Tony Car bone. $ The set design for this excellent production was both tasteful in the I character of Michael and very practical; designed by Phillip Louis Rodzeu. Joe Hassler's lighting designs were very*interesting, including a minor tribute to Bette Midler at the opening. The production was directed by David Mathews who deserves a round of applause.|| All in all, Erie should be proud of the Playhouse and company for this enlightening near perfect production and Mercyhurst should be very proud of our Paul Iddings. f

Health And Drug Hints
METHAQUALONE
Sopors and Quaaludes are common names that refer to the drug methaqualone. It is a nonbarbiturate hypnotic sedative, useful in the treatment of insomnia. Doctors prescribe it as a sleeping pill or tranquilizer. Methaqualone f had been promoted and described as being a completely safe and nonaddictive drug. The effects of methaqualone are very pleasurable. Unfortunately, they can also be very dangerous. Especially so if you've been led to believe otherwise, or are not aware of the dangers. •Methaqualone r e l e a s e s inhibitions and can be psychologically and physically addictive^Wiui prolonged abuse of the drug, a person will build up physical tolerance that will produce severe ^withdrawal symptoms when use is discontinued. This may result in delirium and can produce a near coma state without interferring greatly with |the pulse, respiration or pain response. Methaqualone is particularly dangerous when used in conjunction with - alcohol.. Used 1 together abusively the two drugs may restrict respiration and can cause death-25 | . The amount of methaqualone needed for an overdose does not increase correspondingly with a user's tolerance, softhat .while it takesl increasing amounts to reach the same state ;of being "stoned", the amount it takes to overdose remains Hhe ;same. Heavy users, eventually may get to the point where they overdose before they get off.

A UDITIONS SET AT- H PLAYHOUSE 1

The Mercyhurst College basketball team, spinning from losses in its first three games, finally won their first game of the year Monday night against a very tough St. Vincent team. From all the pre-season indications, the Lakers were not supposed to lose their first three starts. But a mixture of bad officiating, cold shooting, costly turnovers and inconsistency led to a not-so-good beginning, and with the best team in the District as their opponents Monday, things were not looking good. In the end, it-was Carl Jones, smoking one in from 40 feet at the buzzer and all of the sudden the Lakers seemed to be on their way. Maryland-Eastern Shore was the opponent as Mercyhurst took the Gannon Auditorium floor in the opener | In one of: the finest college games ever staged at the Audi, the Lakers finally bowed to t h e ! Hawks * 95-92 after2 two overtimes of play. Next it was on to ? Wheeling and one of the greatest hose jobs Coach Fox's team has seen in its three year history. With the help of 44 foul shots, 18 for the Hurst, Wheeling squeaked out an 87-86 victory. 4 The real sore spot in the three losses came at Point Park. Ahead by five at the half, Mercyhurst acted like the hoop had no hole in it and shot a miserable 30 per cent from the field in the second canto. The Pioneers blew us halfway back to Erie (98-80) and mere it was: no wins and three losses. Paul fNewman, the S.I.D. at Edinboro, ^commenting on the Lakers' opening games, said,

"Your team is the best 0-3 club in the nation." That wasn't much of a consolation. | Next it was on to Latrobe. St. Vincent, undefeated at the time, and flooring their best team in history, played a fine game and with the score tied at 57-57 with two seconds left on the clock and their pre-season | All-American Billy Flowers at the foul line to snoot a one and one situation, it looked like the Lakers were headed for their fourth straight setback. Flowers netted his first throw, but was called for a freethrow violation as his second shot swished. So, instead? of being down by two, the Lakers had one last gasp to win. Coach Fox called the play in the time-out huddle on the sideline and everyone in the fieldhouse thought! the inbounds pass from Willis - Car dot was going to Jesse Campbell perched 75 feet away under the Hurst hoop. Smoker then went into his routine. Breaking from a tandem set up bright in down the left sideline like a flanker running a fly pattern. "Puck" reached back and fired just past the half-court line about 60 feet away. Carl took one dribble, stopped and arched a 40,footer an eyelash before the buzzer sounded. The ball swished through and Mercyhurst; had its first victory. i t |& f It is this writer's opinion that the Hurst is now ready to play basketball. We definitely possess a first-class ball club who should live up to all of-the pre-season expectations. I)look for a 19-5 season and I firmly believe it is still within reach. '"
