Action Cited As "Temporary


After two months of sluggish sailing, the Mercyhurst Weekend College has been put In • 'drydock ''. As of November 15, the end of the Fall Quarter, the Weekend College Program, launchedJn September amidst much publicity ami great expectations, will "temporarily" be put out of commission. . •• Among the reasons that have been given for the withdrawl of the Weekend College from active service is a lack of response from the Brie Community* As Dean Garvey, the overseer of the program, put it: "We felt that the*response to the program 1wasn't strong and that we entered the field too late.' The Dean also noted the uncertainty that existed at the birth of the program - which had originally been organized as a Federal Grant program - when the administration had to make the decision regarding the program's future in light of the federal money's failure to come through. Final

by'Pat Weschler • go-ahead for the Weekend College was issued only two weeks prior to the holding of Its first classes. An outside factor also contributed to the failure of the Weekend College to^meet its* optimistic enrollment projections. This was the overall decline in enrollment of" Erie;area night and weekend education programs. At Gannon College, where an established program has misted for many years, there had been a continuing downturn in their { enrollment for the program. 1 • The Dean did point out that"the Weekend College managed to break even during the Fall term. At the same time, the college administration Judged the Weekend Program a possible fiscal risk and opted not to take the risk during a budget-conscious Winter term. I $ While the program is in drydock, it is hoped that restructuring to make the program more viable and

attractive can be accomplished. The revamped Weekend College would then reemerge at the beginning of Spring Quarter, Dean Garvey stressed that the Weekend College is still a program full of potential. "It gives people a chance to go to school and continue their education, without interfering with their regular working hours, or taking them away from their families every weekday evening.'* The Dean noted that the program has met with great success elsewhere. > The key to the Weekend College success, Dean Garvey asserts, is related directly to the number of new students attracted to Mercyhurst "We brought 25 new people onto the campus through this program, and for this reason, the program was not a mistake. We plan, budget permitting, to bring the Weekend College back in the Spring, and give it a chance to 91 grow and gain acceptance in the Erie community.

Hurst Artists Unveil New Work
Longo The Erie jPaint Company has gone yellow and orange! In an effort to combine business with the Arts, the owner of the Erier Paint Company and President of the Brie Arts Council, James McBrier, asked some Mercyhurst Art students to paint a graphic on one of the outside walls of the Erie Paint building on 14th and State. The wall is 16 feet high and 46 feet long. f § The designers of the graphic are Miss Kemenyffy and her Visual Communications class made-up of eight students. They had been working on the preliminary sketches since the beginning of the school year. The drawings were put up on the wall on Tuesday, October i, and the actual painting was sta rted on Thursday, October 3. J Various Erie businesses contributed to the project by donating the materials. The Erie Paint Company supplied all the paint, while the Sessinghaus and Ostergaard Company, a major Erie building and contracting compa ny, provided the seaffolding. | A few splashes of bright paint can sure help to cheer up' 'dreary Erie.'' j

Action Projects'" Get Things Done

by Joanie Stevenson Four Mercyhurst students are constructing a playground near the Baldwin Gardens Apartments as! part of an "Action Project" for their course, "The Environment". | The students: Helen Schryver, Tina Reicbenbach, Kent Williamson, and Dave Maries, are using an area donated by Mr. John Baldwin./The materials: sand, telephone poles, steel barrels, wire spools etc. have either been donated by companies and individuals or were gathered by die students themselves. The manager of the Baldwin Gardens Apartments, Mr. Stearns, assisted the students. "The Environment" is a interdisciplinary course! instructed by Sister Maura and Ms. Howey. Other "Action Projects" that are being conducted by course participants include a recycling drive which! culminated with a "Recycle Day" on October 29 and\ a fast conducted to draw attention to the plight of African Drought victims. % J i A note from Paul Yochim (member of the environment class). Paper is one of our most misused natural products. As a result of the increase in costs of production, the price of paper and paper products has increased rapidly. Consequently, theplercyhurst community (students, faculty and administration) is asked to use paper and paper products wisely. X

"Last Tango in Paris", a controversial 1973 movie, may be shown at Mercyhurst on February 16, 1975. This announcement was made by Mr. B. ^Phillip Herring, Director of the SACh §' Mr. Herring has arranged an agreement with the film supplier which would make Mercyhurst the first college in the country to show the X-Rated skin flick, which stars Marlon Brando. All that remains is for the SAC to get approval from the Represenative Union of Students for the spending of^an additional $250.00 to cover the difference in rental costs between "Last Tango" and "Frenzy", the movie which would be cancelled to make wayfor "Last Tango".

Ms. Jones (letters to the Editor, October 25,1974) is correct when she describes the LRC as a noisy place. The best libraries are becoming noisier at a rate that even the most pro-library people dared not hope for. There are many reasons why li braries are no longer the tombs that they were when illuminated manuscripts were chained to desks or! when the typical librarians wore tennis shoes to muffle their footsteps and sucked lozenges to sooth vocal cords suffering from the strain of whispering: one of the most masochistic and least effective modes of •communication^known to v mankind. f w , * ® « •> » Today's libraries are recognized as places where information I is exchanged through more than the printed page. It is conveyed lover the telephone, through the use of photocopiers, cassette players, phonographs, films and other information sources which; cannot compete with the noise of home stereos but which nevertheless get their message across at a higher decible level!that that of Johann Gutenbergs first printing jpress. The cress. biggest and noisiest advance of fall is the recognition that one of the most significant forms of learning is* dialogue. The library has finally become \ an extension of the classroom where much of the best learning requires noise. i fk \ >f .1 . L, May*I make several suggestions to Ms. Jones and to others who are disturbed. Note that we have no rooms labeled ""group study/' The doors of* the glass-enclosed rooms are marked "Quiet Study" and are reserved for those who need quiet J May I suggest also that, instead of conveying displeasure through body language, Ms. Jones verbally express her feeling to those who disturb her. It is myfobservation that most Mercyhurst students like and respect one another and that they cooperate when they realize that they may be acting in a thoughtless way. Should these * measures fail the library staff is available to respond immediately tor complaints when these complaints are made known. i • | M We welcome criticism from all who use the LRC and thank Ms. Jones for taking the time to write to the Merciad. We support her wish for detente and in that spirit invite all LRC users to meet withlus whenever they have concerns. I f 11 f | Most sincerely, Joanne Cooper Director of LRC

Although Mercyhurst is set on a peaceful little hill overlooking a pretty (?) little lake, oner should not assume that this snouia College is a placid little congenial community. In every little pocket of this campus there rests a seething group of idealists dedicated to the notion that their way is the only way. & With the elections coming up next week, as a public service, I present to you a Mercyhurst Political scorecard. ^The opponents are as foil ows: Students vs. Faculty Faculty vs. Administration Dorm Residents vs. Day Hops Continuum vs. Consortium Student Policies vs. Student Services Mercy Sisters vs. Administration! Dopers vs. Drinkers fHome Economics vs. Men Academics vs. Athletics fR.U.S. vs. Herring* Students vs. Cafeteria • Students vs. Business Services * On page 1 of this tissue you'll find reactions to Intersession.

Mercyhurst has been accepted,! along with approximately 130 other colleges and universities throughout the country, as a participating institution in the Washington Semester Program run by American University. This program will allow Mercyhurst students to study for a semester in Washington. A? student can choose to concentrate in any one of 'the following basic fields of study: American National Government and Politics; Urban Affairs; U.S. Foreign Policy; and International Development. The program's varied course offerings include: special seminar meetings with public officials, political leaders, Washington lobbyists, State Department officials, etc.; fcarefully supervised individual researchv projects; regular courses from American University's curriculum; and internships with government a I agencies, Congresspeople, or various political organizations centered in Washington. Mercyhurst ^is guaranteed places for two students per year.? More? can be sent if circumstances fwarrant and places are available. The students would attend during American University's spring semester, the equivalent of Mercyhurst's winter and spring terms.

The dormitory facilities on the University campus will be available. In special cases students may be given permission to live \ off-campus, but [American University prefers to keep the group together to facilitate organizing anchcarrying out group activities among Washington Semester participants.
