OCTOBER 1,1976

by Chris Van Wagenen
"Every time we take away more space from the students' domain, we're performing acts that are contrary! to our philosophy and stated purposes," says Joan Cooper, head librarian of the Mercyhurst College Learning Resource Center. Cooper's recent statement preferred to the occupation of two rooms on the second floor of the LRC by Dr. John Stewart's Behavior Research Institute. ^Formerly, both rooms were designated "Quiet Study" areas. Cooper's objection was not directed at> Stewart personally, but rather towardjthe fact that the LRC is literally being turned into an office building for members of the Mercyhurst faculty. "l|can understand how Mrs. Cooper feels," Stewart responded, "but the problem of space is not only here, but also in the rest of the institution." , £• Removal of the quiet study space is considered by some students an invasion of their studying rights. And the concern is shared not only by Cooper and those students, but by some members of the faculty as well. Question the Purpose A number of students are questioning the purpose of the| Behavioral Institute. | | "(It is) to do surveys4 experiments and social science* research," explained Stewart. He added that the institute also involves students and potential research assistants in survey work. Institute students do research for various organizations, including the Erie Government Survey and the Police Manpower Study. The decision to use the Quiet c Midy Rooms was made this summer because Stewart did not have enough room to work. At first, Stewart used the office of Tony Lucas,/ who teaches Distributive f Education at Mercyhurst. That arrangement didn't work out and Stewart asked for more space. During the summer he has appropriated that space when he was given the two adjacent rooms of whatiwas once Quiet Study. Settling In Stewart is pleased where he is and doesn't deny it. "I'm here, I have the space I want, and I'm going to make good use of it," he said. | He also said he did not feel he was creating that much trouble, and that he is trying to cooperate with the LRC staff. 1 Cooper, ^ however, insists 5that taking the rooms is 'ripping off the kids." ™ College Dean, Dr. Jerry Trimble, told the Merciad the situation is tentative and will be re-evaluated at tjie end of the year. " V ) Trimble did indicate, however, that the basement of j Baldwin Hall is a possible alternate site. For the present, however, the Behavioral Institute remains in the Quiet Study area and students at Mercyhurst must again adapt to the system.

"One day after they went into use, we had one broken cue and four with broken tips. Now we're down to five sticks and 10 are outfof commission." | I ? "The tables are in use constantly," she added. "At this rate everything Is going to be gone before January." I By January, hopefully, enough money will have been raised to repair or^replace the stuff all over again. In the past, the tables

gradually fell into disrepair as the year went on. U "When Student Government passed this/' said Student Services Director Bill Kennedy, "it was with the idea in mind that all the money that was raised would go back into the tables in some

Students who petitioned say the use the tables is already paid for in the $25 activities fee included in tuition costs. tin practice, activititv fees-at most colleges buy discounts, not free tickets. The only large scale activities still offered free rat Mercyhurst are the Coffeehouse concerts. Mercy hurst's $25 activities fee is small compared with most other schools its size. Those that have equal activities fees generally charge more for individual activities. Gannon College charges its students 60 cents per hour for pool, B eh rend 75 cents and $1.25.

- FOR THE FIRST TIME in seven years, Mercyhurst students are paying for the use of the pool tables in the Student Union. The charge is 30 cents per hour. Student Government and the Student Activities Committee said economic difficulties necessitated the decision. About 60 students signed a petition in protest.

McAuley's Security Free And Easy?
U This year a few changes have taken place in McAuley Hall. The security system and dorm visitation policies have been tightened up from last year's "free and easy" atmosphere. Denis Andres, McAuley's new director, actually re-instituted the rules and regulations which seem to have been forgotten over the years. The policy for intervisitatton now in operation is similar to that in Baldwin and Egaa Residents having guests are paged and must leave their I.D.'s at the front desk. Due to the loudness of the paging system, it is only used until 10 p.m. on week nights and 11 p.m. on weekends. Anotherprestrictlon which will be enforced this year to that of banning anyone from bringfng kegs into the dorm. The reasoning behind this is because keg parties are more likely to get out of hand and cause more problems for those in charge. *• Andres is assisted as Dorm Director by his] wife, Mary Catherine. Both are experienced working with people and invite any students having problems to stop in and talk with them.

It seems that people don't realize what they have until it has been taken away. Such iis the case jjwith the Quiet Study Rooms in the Learning Resources Center. I -| ar \ I I Suddenly, no onelhas^any place to study because of^the lack of two, reviously seldom used, Quiet' Study looms. "af ¥| I The fact is, those two rooms are being put to better use now than* ever before. They are no longer being misused by inconsiderate students who themselves just took up space. j§ i \ Seriously, now many times have you walked past fa Quiet Study Room and seen three or four studente talking instead of studying. "Quiet" Study Rooms mean; that they are to "be used when absolute silence is necessary. J \ \ Of course, there a re I students who do actually use the frooms to do some serious studying,? but surely? the remaining rooms will\ provide enough space to accomodate them. We Ifeel (the renovated Quiet Study Rooms are being put to good use. Better than many Mercyhurst students could do. S " ' t * I The LRC itself is under-used. Students 1 don't realize what they have. If it is being turned! into an "office building" it's the students fault for not taking advantage of what is there to be usechby them. * 1. !
Free movies and free use of the pool tables in the Student Union was a pleasant bonus enioyed at some time or another by nearly every student attending Mercyhurst College over the past seven years. 'iNo one, then, was happy when the days of free movies and free pool came to an end (for the time being, at least) early this week. The Student Activities Committee and its new Director, Jann Gatti, was given a budget of $12,000 with which to provide entertainment for the entire student body during the 76-'77 academic year. * Admittedly, 12 grand can sound like a lot of money. Particularly when it is stacked up against what islet's face it-a nickel-dime operation like collecting 30 cents an hour for a couple games of rotation. However, the SAC budget is some $1500 less than last year's. And it is almost impossible to buy a coffeehouse act for less than $300, a first rate speaker for less than $1500, or a concert act for less than $1100. The issue of paying 25 cents for the campus movies hasn't stirred much more than normal complaining. So that one can be dealt with quickly: this year s movie list is far better than last year's or any other in recent memory. The SAC paid $5500 to-get these films. On a good week, it!will be reimbursed $69 to $70, tops, by students. \ j J 1 The issue of charging for use of the pool tables has created bad feelings and now, protest, in the form of the petition placed in the Union. The petition states that table fees are already paid by each student in the $25 activity fee included I in tuition. | f J* * | } | A check of comparably sized colleges in northeastern Pennsylvania and elsewhere shows that Mercyhurst's $25 fee is one of the lowest that can be found anywhere. At schools where the activity fee is comparable, costs for individual activities are higher. ^f * Among other Erie colleges, Gannon charges 60 cents an hour for use of its-pool tables, Behrend either 75 cents or $1.25 an hour, for different students. Every year the SAC must cut corners where it can in order to book some entertainment. This summer the SAC had an initial outlay of $600 on pool equipment: cues, balls, racks, leveling and recovering the tables. | I *The SACsis not going to show any profit from its pool table revenues. Every dollar will be put back into maintaining or improving the equipment; There is talk of buying a regulation-size table on the chance that enough money is leftover. .* I For all intents and purposes, the days of the free pool and free movies at Mercyhurst are over. But at these prices, anyway, it's still a bargain. * Gary S. Weswan





In last week's article about the Briggs situation, it^was failed Ho be reported that 40 of the students living there who were offered*alternative housing turned it down and remained in Briggs. J 1

There are however students, who I have a high regard for that are here for a COMPLETE EDUCATION! f Dr. Jerry Trimble, dean at'Mercyhurst, pointed out to me recently that the circulation in the library is bad and also, as he sees it, the library is not being used enough.* % •» *, On both points I agree, but as I stated previously there is the academic student on campus. Should he or she suffer because the rest of the Mercyhurst community is ignorant to what lies before them? ) Maybe the fact that students do not use the library says something about our college. Are we an institution of higher learning? ™ It's a hard question and only as individuals can we answer it. < I Though I'm for Dr. Stewart's Behavorial Institute, the L.R.C. is no place for his office. The academic students who I hope I speak for, should not be informed that the system is having space problems. W , We offthe Mercyhurst community who do not take advantage oft he L.R.C. should not letfthe minority suffer. Now!the question is, should the student who wishes to study, put up with the new office or do we say no and putj the students back in the L.R.C.?'* j \ <v/-f i ' Only you the students can make that decision. As for myself, the institute should be moved. Chris Van Wagenen Merciad Staff

Dean Trimble Voices Opinions
Dr. Jerry Trimble, the Dean of Students here at Mercyhurst College, has established certain priorities that represent personal developmental tasks and interpersonal, < educational, and institutional goals. These-are areas in which Dr. Trimble feels he needs to grow and improve. And to do so, he will need assistance from us all. I Dr. Trimble's personal priorities put forth include the aim to beehimself — avoiding professional role stereotypes, persuasiveness with tact, tempered idealism with maintained integrity, and creative leadership in a manner consistent with the agreedupon purpose of our institution. Among the interpersonal priorities Dr. Trimble has cited are the promotion of a healthy self-concept and growth in others, ideas respected and upheld by others, healthy conflict that does not hinder growth, authority by consent, and-that responsibility and appropriate information is shared. : "Recognize the difference between ideas and insights which have lasting value • in educational programs as opposed to those which are transitory," says Dr. Trimble, "Be willing to experiment/' Dr. Trimble's educational priorities include shared decision making, that faculty time is well spent and -given thorough consideration, institutional values and characters bring about institutional change, consideration of educational issues and formulating institutional policies and programs, and the intent oi comprehending ideas and suggestions. | Finally, Dr. Trimble sets forth* specific in stitutional priorities which in effect? develop and implement an integrated program of physical development and athletics coinciding with /the philosophy of Mercyhurst College, also Help develop evaluation, promotion, and tenure criteria inline with the philosophy and goals of the College, and develop an effective faculty developmentiprogram for both tenured and nontenured faculty. , | The new Dean of Mercyhurst College, Dr. Jerry Trimble, has schedule four appearances to meet and become better acquainted with Mercyhurst students. On Monday, Oct. 4, Trimble will be in the faculty lounge starting at 7 p.m. to meet with the students of Briggs ami Egan halls. The following day he wUl be in the Student Union from 11:30 a.m. untU 1 p.m. to talk with commuting students.

This is the first in a series of articles that will be written for the Merciad regarding the "care and propagation of many of the most favored and ^popular houseplants in America today. These are written in the hopes of assisting Mercyhurst's many amateur gardeners with in* teresting ana helpful information. This week's concentration will be centered upon the "Dieffenbachia Amoena." This Dumb Cane/ or Mother-in-law's Tongue plant, is one of the hardiest genera for the dry, well-heated apartments prevalent today. The northern parts of South America, including Columbia, Venezuela, and forests of Guiana, serve "to link the Central American flora with the Amazon region, or Hylaea, and are partly rainy, partly dry. Such is the habitat t of the Diffenbachia Amoena, which has become to the 1 second half of the twentieth century what the Boston Fern was to the nineteenth, with its cool, humid homes. » The plant grows five feet tall under optimum conditions. The long leaves- are splashed with cream, and variegation tends to increase, in most species under

good light, s I About the only thing that can go wrong with a Dieffenbachia is root rot. The symptoms are watersoaked lesions on the stem at the ground line.; The leaves may turn yellow and wilt and stems may break. The disease is favored by high humidity, high temperature, and poor drainage, which can be avoided by making sure that the soil dries out between waterings. This attractive and durable foliage plant likes a moist, warm atmosphere, protection from the direct rays of the sun, and porous, rich soil with good drainage. With age plants shed lower leaves and become leggy, g ' *r I Propagate by air-layering and then make stem cuttings of the stub (lower end). Cut stem*into i2"-3" lengths each with one eye. Lay horizontally and partially bury in moist sand (70 to 180 degrees) and cover with glass until rooted. • | \ The common name Dumb Cane comes from the fact that nibbling on a dieffenbachia plant will quite literally strike you dumb! The sap contains calcium oxalate, which, although not a' toxic poison, causes swelling and intense pain, j * I

Catalyst; For Women Only
"Today's employment scene— so full of opportunities and^ obstacles—affects women in general, but [what does it mean for you?|How can you take advantage of the positive aspects and become master; of the negative ones? How can you make and follow a plan for finding work! that really meets ' your needs and suits your talents?" These are just a few) of the questions that are dealt' with in the Catalyst Self-Guidance Series now available for use | in the Career Planning and Placement Center. Catalyst is a series of 40 booklets geared towards the widening career opportunities for women as well as the challenges and obstacles faced by women in career development. % The.Hirst book, Planning for Work centers on self-exploration in helping each woman establish her own career goals that will suit her interests, strengths, values and family life. The second book, Your Job Campaign, centers on developing a strategy for career development. It explores the five major steps^ in the job search: 1. do research; 2. prepare resume;~3. get interview; 4. take interview; 5. follow-up interview. $ Each of; the remaining 40 booklets deals with one particular career opportunity. Some of the diverse areas covered are:!

Welcome Toby Darlene Mr. Jefffry Harris Hurst Keith
At the age of one and a half years when Jeffry Harris was just beginning to learn how to walk, he became interested in Classical and popular music, f s **s i f By interested, I mean he would sit and listen to these two kinds of music and be happy. ^ Jeffry*s family, then living in Pittsburgh, were lucky enough to live on the floor above a pianist that played with the Pittsburgh Symphony. So, upon reaching the age of six years, he then began taking private piano lessons from this man.

Look At It This Way

Campus Clique Not The Hurst
Editor's Note:| The following is the first in a series of Columns written by two members of the Mercyhurst community who feel that more than just the serious side of campus life should be presented in a college newspaper. It will be interesting to watch the freshmen class this term as it forms its ownfand diffuses into already existing campus cliques. I That's right Kids: Contrary to what you have been told cliques are very much a part of life here at the Happy 'Hurst. And we think it is time you found out about some of the already established ones. It should make for an interesting flash into the past for the returnees, too. \ In any discussion of cliques at McAuley, it is only right to begin with the first floor. \ R e m e m b e r • S.W.A.T.? Remember baseball caps in the cafeteria? Remember the occasional "friction" between the two floors during intersession and winter term? Remember billy clubs in back pockets and smoke bombs under the doors? H We will skip the second floor for a moment and move on to the third, which was, to put it mildly, a very strange place last year. Personally, we think it was the altitude. Hie young living on the third floor soon took on a very spacey [look;J even lwhen you talked to them, you never got the impression you were really communicating. They tended to float away after a few words. Third floor existed mostly as a state of mind. It seemed only a matter of time before the structure itself lifted loose of the rest of the building and floated away on a cloud of smoke over Lake Erie. ; I Now for the second floor. We hink we have been saving the jest for last, r 'The evidence speaks for itself. Two former residents were driven to seek spiritual cleansing at St. Mark's Seminary. We wish them luck. ] We will always remember one incident in particular which characterized the brand of mass insanity-practised on the second floor. It began in the midst of two wrestling matches, a skate board race in which one was powered by a compressed air tank, three pillow fights, a basketball game involving human backboards and a special guest appearance by a would-be Mouseketeer. Into this seven-ring circus came an innocent civilian asking for help. Something about his car being stuck. Anyway, as he tried to shout above the roar of the Perm State Pitt game on the lobby TV set, a 19* year-old resident wearing a pair of Mickey Mouse ears and needing ~a shave in the worst way»approached him to inquire of his plight* The civilian's face drained'of blood. He turned, stumbled down the stairs and was never heard from again. 1^ | There were and are other cliques besides those in McAuley.fi The baseball team, for instance J What it lacks on the playing field J it makes up for around a 12-pack.| An honored tradition is the baseball team's table in| the cafeteria. The players eye every female and produce the appropriate snorts and grunts that! accompany her "rating." Then there \ are the dance people, who * bounce by on their. toes from class to cafeteria to bed| and to class again. We wonder/* girls, do your toes get sore? Two big factions are the girls of Egan vs. Baldwin, rivals who seem to have the same nasty' things to say, but never to each others* faces. | * A1 % 1 of this seems inconceivable, but it isn't. Such incidents, good timesL and funny moments will come and go this year, too. You won't realize what strange things you have done until you sit down the following year and recall, as we have. In the way • they have been described here, maybe cliques sound] foolish. But we tend to forget what the past has done for us. It is through experiences, happenings and friends that we have grown and will grow. Look at yourself now. Probably you will see quite a difference in what you are and what you were last year or will become this year. The tdifferences happen largely!because of friends and how we identify with them. All of us in some way identify with the campus as a whole, y i Identity-that's the key word. We are all here striving to find out about ourselves and to become somebody. So the next time you laugh at a group of people because they are so "cliquish," remember that you are probably right in the middle of a clique, yourself, and its all just a part of being involved, and being friends.

The three freshmen members of the team include two Finns, Artero Pulkiaen^and Kai Bod* denoff, and Jerry Garcia of Mexico. I Artero and Kai hold many honors in Finland and should help fill the gap left by the absence of last year's Finns Reijo Tuomelo and Keri Pesonen.
