Horping Horvey Carol Quartuccio

The 'Hurst is just filled with gripes this week. It's as if the whole campus is quivering with noisy complaints! I f £h } The number one gripe for this week goes to the noise level on campus. Naughty students—don't you know to study correctly you don't need a lot of noise? Maybe if we had a big "get together", like on Friday or Saturday night, overall the noise would decrease. What I'd like to know is what are you guys in Sesler doing—maybe ? we should Tgive you the nickname 'Tarty Apartments." I can t understand whyUhere have been so many complaints on party noise when there have been less parties this year than ever before. * ; One gripe which seems to get louder every year is the cafeteria food. It seems to get worse, not better. Watch out Saga—a hate committee may be formed shortly and they are out to get you.

J lum bies R
There seems to be a few rumbles from the intramural football field. If all these injuries keep up, there may not be enough players for every team. One nice thing about it, the nurse has some new and exciting business for a change. While we are on the subject? of sports, there is a jripe or some complaining somewhere in the athletic lepartment. (I pass through there alot). Can't tell you what the complaints are but it's a hot issue. I can tell! My ffinal gripe this week goes to the students of Mercyhurst. All the above gripes were heard while passing by groups of people. (That may be nosey but sometimes it's the only way!) If you have a complaint, write it down and drop it in the information room in care of the Merciad or me—Harping Harvey. • Harping Harvey Chief Compla iner

Constant Compfoiners

The question this week is "What DONT Mercyhurst students complain about?" Mercy hurst students are constant complainers and their complaints are usually trivial and directed to improper c targets. They range from "why do I have to attend! classes" to "why aren't there many student activities, on campus?" It appears to me that students thrive on grievance, and grievance is a form of ignorance when ^lemrated in this fashioa Therefore, ifl<a»yone wishes to file a complaint against anything, no matter Staff Editoria |how trite or prominent, he should contact ap-1 propriate authorities'on the subject, or submit a| letter to the editor. £

Sesfer Parking
My prominent complaint is the Sesler Apartment parking situation. Noticeably, students from campus residences and outsiders tend to utilize the very few parking spaces available for Sesler tenants. This causes a disastrous situation for all drivers since the lot area becomes quite congested. Zurn and dorm parking lots are large enough to adequately meet the needs of automobile owners. Hence, to alleviate this dilemma, all should respect the rights of apartment dwellers by removing their vehicles from PRIVATE PROPERTY.

Unsupported Criticism
byjMaryann Crowley f

It is very discouraging for members of the Merciad staff to hear unsupported criticism. Not only does this discourage the people who are involved in the newspaper directly, out the Mercyhurst community as a whole. One of the main functions of any school newspaper is to serve its readers.jHowever, a paper cannot carry out this function to its fullest without the help of its readers. A lot of negative comments about the Merciad have been said by a variety of people on campus. When these people were asked what suggestions they might have to better the paper, they suddenly clam up. Criticism can be very helpful when it is backed up by something to remedy the wrong, and it can be very hazardous when it is used as idle gossip. ^ | It is hoped that anyone with suggestions concerning the Merciad will submit a letter to the editor. They can be left at the information room in Mam or left under the door of the Merciad office which is located at 304 Main.
. i ' «.'•*!

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor: • ; ll would like to commend the entire Merciad staff for the outstanding papers that they have been producing the last four weeks. ^ « It must be a rewarding experience tor you to see so many people reading the Merciad for its wealth of information instead of a habitual pasttime when waiting for the next class to begin. In a college community;such as ours where it seems that "hardly anything goes on", the Merciad outdoes itself by filling every page with meaningful information.. •# I look forward to reading each issue of the Merciad, not only for'entertainment, but also as part of my educational experience. ^ 1ST * A faithful aamirier

Ralph Returns
by Mary Sue Sabol
Back by popular demand, Ralph will be ;in concert Sundays October 12, to put finishing touches on this year's Fall Festival Some of you may never have heard of Ralph, but once you see and hear them perform Sunday night, you'll remember them for years to come. Ralph, a ten piece rock orchestra, appeared for the first time<;on the* campus of Mercyhurstin May of 1975 for Spring Weekend. They literally "brought thefhouse down" with their superb quality and style. The audience was so impressed that they demanded an encore, to which Ralph warmly responded. • i The music of Ralph can't be stereotyped likes so many other rock* bands of today. They have an original style influenced by jazz and classical music. "In their show, theIband incorporates the* use of ^vocals, bases, synthesizers, mellatron, piano, \ guitars, percussion, horns, and drums plus $60,000 in sound J reproduction equipment and lighting. 'This combination of instrumentation. vocalization, and special effects result in a truly dynamic sound. The ^material Ralph presents on the concert stage includes selections from their nearly fifty recordings done in London at Trident Studios, and at Cleveland's Agency Recording. Rock classic like Good Vibrations i and McArthur Park are also included** { Not N only has Ralph recorded in the U. S. and Europe, but they have also performed or recorded with such well-known personalities as David Bowie, the Grassroots, Lighthouse and

"Ralph" will be appearing in the Indoor tennis ZZ Top. Add to this press releases written up in Billboard ^Magazine, Rolling Stone, and two major publications in the music industry today. moving Ralph >t is progressively faster toward national fame and popularity. And just think, you have the chance to see and hear them live, at no cost? You may never pet such a chance again, so make the most of

And that's just orte etfamplejmany tnore could easily be cited. It's quite clear that the band had combined their excellent instrumentation with the vocal talent of the individual members to create an exciting sound. Speaking of sound, Gunhill Road's special effects system should be acknowledged, They've incorporated into their music the use of kazoos (Wipe Out), whistles and 4 Larry'sT mouth" (Baked Bean Band). These I sound effects {added something special which the audience really enjoyed.

OCTOBER 10. 1975

What's blue, green and white and goes blind every time it steps up to the plate?? If you guessed "a Mercy hurst baseball player", give yourself a pat on the bade but if you failed to come up with mat answer, then may I suggest you take a bite from the apple that all good Lakers have been choking on lately. The big question on the Laker ball club is, "to hit or not to hit." At this poinLin the season, the Lakers are batting as a team, a dismal 167 average. In just two games, the Lakers have managed to strand seventeen base runners. tAt one point in Sunday's game, a ball thrown by a Laker player was bouncing towards third base. The Niagara coach just happened to be walking that iway when one of the Laker players yelled. "Look out, coach" and Laker Coach was heard to add. "Don't worry, coach. It won't hit you. They haven't hit a thing all day." * ;| & . £ , Let's face it. To score runs you have to have hits. To have hits, you have to make contact with the ball. Well, this the Lakers aren't really doing either. You have to say this for them; at least they're consistent. My feeling is that the pitchers are being robbed of? victories because Laker players still must grasp the fundamentals^ fielding and hitting. \* ; * ' But all in all you have to give the pitching staff credit. Without them, the Lakers might be 0-8 instead of 3-3. Pitchers, don't lose face yet. That blue, white and green may still come around to hit, provided it doesn't rain.

On October 3 and 5, the Mercyhurst baseball team split doubleheaders with Buffalo University and Niagara. t In the first doubleheader on Friday, the Lakers split with Buffalo by scores of 1-0. The pitcher's control was dazzling and along with a strong curve ball managed to give the Lakers their victory of the day. ft In the second game Ray Olszewski suffered his first loss of the season in a 3-1 loss. Ray, like most pitchers on the stafi, had to accept the fact that, if he didn't pitch U.IHK hitter, he just was not going to
