Academic Calendar

No drastic changes are featured in the proposed academic calendar for the 1975-76 school year, now under consideration by the Academic Policies Committee of the College Senate. . il Although it was stressed that the calendar remains tentative until approved by the Academic Policies Committee, the following features of* the new calendar were disclosed: 1) Mercyhurst will remain on a 3-1-3-3 academic calendar system, with three ten week tri-mesters and a fifteen day Intersession. 2) All regular tri-mesters will run to normal length — 39-40 days. 3) Vacations will still be placed between terms. Creation of a new academic calendar which incorporated all of the desirable aspects off the old

Few Changes Proposed For
calendar andlstiU corresponded better to the Villa and Gannon calendar was no easy task. The goal was clear, however, that the starting and ending times of the three local\ Consortium colleges should be as nearly identical as possible. It was originally feared that bringing the Mercyhurst calendar into line with those of the other colleges would require a Spring term of far less than the desired 40 class days. This problem is not evident in the proposed calendar, although classes will be held on four Wednesdays in Spring term under the proposed plan J 0 ; As presently drawn up, the 1975-76 school year will begin on September 2 and end on May 28,1976, with breaks of eighteen, sixteen, and ten days between the respective terms, fr I Also neartng completion is the Initial form of the Mercyhurst Master Calendar. The people compiling the Master Calendar are seeking an organized schedule of dates and activities involving the college which is easily accessible and kept constantly up-todate. New and improved communications channels will be created along with the calendar, to facilitiate the scheduling of events, arrangements for facilities, and arrangements for necessary services connected with the event. It has been stated that guidelines regarding these new channels will be issued in the near future. I —-—

MAY 2. 1975

Dear Students: As you know from a story in a recent Me re tad, we had hoped to have information to you by this time concerning the? tuition increase for the 1975-76 academic year. ^Unfortunately, we are unable to present the figure at this time, but expect to be able to do so by May 9.1 •% V C & * The delay us due to the fact that we are doing everything possible to achieve two basic goals: 1) to keep the tuition increase as low as is fiscally and humanly possible, and 2) to present a balanced budget, which is a financial imperative. i ,i. This is being written on Tuesday, April 29, so as to meet the deadline for this week's edition of the Merciad. Last Friday,*thei Budget and 'Finance Committee, \ including its 'student and faculty representatives, met for three hours. The Committee will be meeting again later this afternoon (Tuesday). Assuming|a tentative budget is .approved at that time, the suggested tuition increase will then be mailed to each member of the Board of Trustees. Once the Board is polled, we will announce the results: § *»* p * j j ^ You should know that the college budget for this year is $3.5 million, which is a modest budget for an institution of this size. If we are able to limit the increase to five per cent for this coming year, which is substantially below the inflation rate, it means we must raise an additional $175,000. You should be aware also that 87 per cent of the budget is in fixed and non-discretionary costs such as faculty and staff salaries and fringe benefits, financial aid, utilities, debt service, etc. t i l lAlso, you should know that the budget has been scrubbed time and time and time again over the past few months in an effort to eliminate every single cent in jj expenditures that can be eliminated without seriously jeopardizing the quality of our programs at the College. j * §The problem we are facing at this moment in our effort to balance the budget revolves around the dramatic increases recently announced for utilities, increases which will have a profound effect on the


Coroner To Speak JFK Assassination
On Thursday,^ May 8th, at 8:00 p.m., Dr. Cyril Wecht, Allegheny County Coroner * and a \ noted authority on the assassination of President John F, Kennedy will address a Mercyhurst audience on the subject of the Kennedy assassination. A holder of doctoral degrees in both fields, Dr. : Wecht is- both* a licensed doctor and a licensed lawyer, having been educated at the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Maryland. Since 1970, he has served in the position of coroner for the County of Allegheny. Dr. Wecht makes his home in Pittsburgh. .$£ * \ g % In his work in the field of Forensic Pathology, Dr. Wecht*' has gathered information on the Kennedy assassination which leads him to believe that the conclusions of the Warren Commission;are wrong. Dr.. Wecht particularly disputes /the Commissiorvs conclusion that only one bullet was fired at President Kennedy and that same bullet struck both Kennedy and Gov. JohnConnally/ I %'. | ; Dr. Wecht believes that the "single-bullet theory" is no longer credible. Instead, he feels that President Kennedy was not only killed by two bullets or more, but that there was more than one assassin involved in the shooting. Dr. Wecht's lecture will involve *the presentation of evidence in the form of pictures, reports, and-slides to back his thesis that President Kennedy's assassination was not the work of one man one bullet. \ J Dr. Wecht's presentation will be sponsored by the Political Science Department, The Student Activities Committee, and the Cultural Affairs Committee, and will be presented in the format of a Social Science Seminar. I - t I |4 | I All members of the Mercyhurst and Erie community are invited to attend Dr. Wecht's lecture. Admission will be free.

DR. M. L. SHANE budget. Also,{we have committed the College to a substantial'increase in student aid. This is an increase which must be balanced off on the income side.; I You can be assured that your president, each member of his staff, each member of the Budget and Finance Committee, and each member of the Board of Trustees is cognizant of the impact a tuition increase will have on you as students. You can be assured also that each of us is doing his-her best to keep the increase at the lowest possible level. Sincerely, Marion L.Shane President I

Staff Editoria

by Dale Mcintosh Recently this writer overheard a conversation of two day students. They were voicing their opinions of the parking situation here. I guess the biggest gripe either of them had | was the parking in the new side lot next to (he library. As everybody with a car knows the hours of nine o'clock to 12 o'clock and maybe as long as one are the toughest to find a parking spot. The gripe this person was voicing was the same one this writer voices today and is the reason for this article. Many times in the past two weeks there has been no parking available in this lot in the mornings. Many students, myself included, have been parking there anyway, just because there's no parking between the crooked yellow lines. Why do they get tagged anyway? This question angered me so much that Invent to the Security Department to find some explanations. §|

Due to a lack of letters to the editor and because this page must be filled somehow, I'm forced to write another editorial column. Now, I don't like this anymore than you because personally, I'd rather print your ideas than my own. After all, the ideas and thoughts of 11,000 people are more interesting to read when the paper comes out than the ramblings of one mind. Sometimes, I'm tempted to write letters to myself but then again, writing letters addressed "Dear Editor" would label me, a narcissistic schizophrenic which would cause me, (not to mention my mother.) to worry about myself and I would then be a neurotic- and that'would drive,me crazy! So without further ado, I will try to make much ado about nothing. (Thank you, BUI Shakespeare). As the school year draws to a close, many Mercyhurst students look forward to a long, luxurious summer vacation; but for many seniors, the future is not that sunshiny bright. As graduation nears, seniors are forced to decide "What they will be when they grow up." For many, the prospects are cloudy. (My best friend just landed a job as* a life-guard in a car wash and is thrilled to pieces.") It makes one wonder if this whole college scene is at all worth it. I think so. The education one receives in college is not measurable by an A or a B. A college degree, to my I mind, measures not ability but stamina. If one can complete the rigors of collegiate conformity- one can handle the world!

stitution to * the expected tuition hike, he is "...assuming good faith." j This phrase tries to imply a trusting attitude among the faculty, administration and students. Such is not always the case. For if we are all constantly assuming good faith, must we constantly assure each other that we are?? ? Becky Buck is the secretary for the Education Division. Becky works on the third floor of Old Main in a large, open office which is easily accessible to the general public. Several times Becky has tried to spruce up her office with plants. Severaltimesthese plants have been stolea In fact, according to Becky, "Everything that isn't nailed down is stolen." There also has been a recent epidemic of walletstealing. The wallet is usually recovered by Securityminus the money, of course! The Merciad can't take a poll on campus stealing. Who would admit to being a thief? But all one has to do to witness the effects of stealing on campus is to walk through dorms and read the signs posted which plead with campus crooks to return belongings. What can be oone? Nothing really. But it's just too bad that there are people here who'd steal a plant, steal a fellow student's wallet or someone's clothes!! Lest this column depress you too much, contemplate if you will, on Mercyhurst in the springtime. Tennis balls thwop constantly, frisbees whoosh all day and uniformed baseball and tennis players trudge good naturedly back-and-forth to practice. Everyone seems to want to celebrate the Spring - our Spring together. No matter what ourt troubles, Spring at Mercyhurst somehow brings us together. Happy Spring!!


Lately, in the College's political circles, the "in" words have become assume good faith." To begin with, the men responsible for this are Will Everyone seems to be assuring everyone that while Sydow and Joe Cook Sr. Mr. Cook told me that he has bargaining on anything from a new senate conabout fifteen work-study students working here. About half of whom work outside in the morning, which is quite a lot for so few parking lots. He pointed out to me that there are two smaller lots on the southeastern corner of the campus that are sparsely used during this time. Mr. Cook went even further by informing mefthatfthey do check! the parking situations reguarly. I admitted being very ignorant to this situation and after he pointed out that every lot on campus (with exception of behind Preston, McAuley and visitors in front of Main are ok to park in, I felt even more ignorant. I admit that when I started looking into this situation I did it with the intention of cutting up the parking situatioa I have been proven wrong. It is a fact that the Mercyhurst parking is more than adequate. It is also a fact that no matter where you park, a student has a much less distance to walk than Dear Editor, in most other schools. it think it's about time we las students' quit After eight months of reading the Merciad and its screaming about this and that when we have no in- constant articles on women's sports written by those formation. There is a time and place and most im- who lack clear insight into the matter, I find it difportantly a proper cause to excerise our rights, but I ficult to refrain from my comments about this any would like to say that the Mercyhurst parking and the longer. | J '% % - p • \ people who take care of it are exceptional. As far as I can see. most of the opinions stated have been very stereotypical and I see no place where they stand to judge. The last was pointed at the women's crew (which is not a team, but a club because the school can't seem to find the money to support it). But please, if we are directing our comments to those in particular, let us keep them in that direction and In circulating the faculty petition to the Board not extend it to all women's sports. of Trustees regarding tuition (published in last week's Merciad), we were unable to contact all of the faculty members. It should not be taken Stu<U«t ML that the absence of a faculty member's name on the petition implies a refusal to sign it. |f I Of those faculty members asked to sign the ? AFTER GRADUATION petition, well over 90 per cent did so. | I Barry G. Grossman *

tf *•:


• « * ,

Need I mention our lack of support, financially or from the students, which is very depressing as well as discouraging. Iris very apparent the school only carries these programs for'mere tradition and not much other reason. And so, why do we play, if we don't have the support? Because we want to, because we want to better ourselves ;for four own personal enrichment, to become the best we are capable at something we enjoy. Is this not dedication? Admittedly, we aren't the best, and we don't bring fame to the school, but we make an honest attempt at winning! What can you do without scholarships for quality players or Math the barest minimum amount of money for equipment? I$ As for the alcohol mentioned last week, Til admit I don't refrain from it during the season. But I also know of many, many male athletes who don't also, even those who drink while on tour! I So please, do not use this to point your finger at our lack of dedication. ' I cannot speak for all the females on campus involved in sports, but for those I can, I do. Rose Ann Bauer m P.S. As for the "stronger sex", was it Bobby Riggs who beat Billy Jean King or was it Billy Jean King who beat Bobby Riggs? ? ? v*

On April 29, Mart Gardner and two other girls had the tremendous experience of performing in a live concert with Rod McKuen at Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh, Pa. Rod McKuen is a popular poet who has written several books and recorded a few albums. His basic style is conducent to "bachelor pads, low lights, and wine." 1 After trying out for the civic opera in Pittsburgh, Mari was approached ? by talent scouts in connection with the concert. Mari and the two other girls were chosen from some 500 to 1,000 people for this opportunity to sing and dance with Rod. During the concert, Mari, the current star of Hot L Baltimore, sang a solo entitled, "I Never Want To Say Good-bye." The concert was video-taped and may possibly reach national television in the near future. Congratulations, Mari!

Here's everything In a nutshell that can be said about the Second Invitational Bay Regatta last weekend: Buffalo State was as cocky as ever. -Michigan State got here late. -Support was great -The only trophy Coach Shimpeno received was his new weather radio. -Canisius gave Michigan State'a tough race^ -The dock fell...again. Twenty oarswomen finally put the manning in the water. •The Buffalo State coach said 'Til never let a girl In one of my I boats, just before his machisms chipped apiece out of their own boat. -Jones lost his "Philly" cap. -Jones lost hts seat. -Jones Tost his oar. Where's Jones! 1!??? f Shimpeno made sure that at least one 'Hurst team would win -the women's crew-the White Tornados (Women's Varsity) edged out a victory by half a bay, -"Busch" Shimpeno's immortal words, 4 'not bad for the first women's crew boat even 1 finished," -Ed "Inchworm' Inscho committed HariKari with his oarsblade. -Murphy helped Inscho. "The men's freshmen are still wondering who can steer a [straighter course: Jeff Best or Cindy By ham. -Mr. and Mrs, Bondo enjoyed! the action, '-Mercyhurst's men's crew choked, losing one for the "Kipper". Kim "Redneck" Keith scalped - the red-haired "hippie" from Michigan St • Pattl Mullaugh further strengthened her position as crew manager ] by proving that she can't row. -After the day's results, "Philadelphia Freedom" was replaced by "Funeral for a Friend''. Despite the poor showing by Mercyhurst. spectators were treated to fine performances by the Canisius and Buffalo St. teams. In that respect, the Regatta was a well-organized success. I

^Unfortunately, even after last week's humiliation (yes. Tracy, I was humiliated) I will attempt to write a this week. Who would have thought those damn Penguins would give away a 3-0 series lead. It still should be an easy semi-final series for the Flyers vs. the Islanders. As you know, I do hate the Flyers * M A team which can go no

What does a successful team have that a poor team doesn't have? Recently I've had many people comment on this to me. I guess the first thing to look at would be what kind of talent does the team have. Taking the Lakers' spring sports teams. I would say pretty good. But just having awesome talent isn't enough; they must have someonej to put this talent together. These two together present an over-powering team. Next a team must have a good schedule. Playing very weak teams proves little, if anything. In my judgement all our teams have e: opponents. i Then the next question would be why don't we have all championship teams? Or at least more than the ones we have now. The reason is team work. Several times this year I have observed various sporting events of our teams. without making a point of what team or teams I've observed I'm now stating that

this is no way to play. How can you possibly expect to win when everybody's fighting amongst each other. I don't mean a fist fight or anything like that. Just everyday back stabbing^ and complaining. The season Is half over and it's about time we started getting it together and start winning, I'm sure many people will say tha t sports 3uiIds good character and it is not whether you * win or lose but how you played the game. There is a lot of truth in this but let's face it, the goal of this college sports program Is to win: If It isn't than somebody tell this writer why do we recruit so hard? A Special note. )? Tuesday the 29th the baseball team had a home game with the Fighting Scots. How many of you made it?
