Sr. Eustace expressed gratitude to all who have helped Mercyhurst to grow and develop into the kind of school the founders hoped for. Dr. Shane made some comments on the future of Mercyhurst.

Letter To The Editor



n Administration
particularly dealing with the clerical duties of the office. Much of this clerical work is now done by Mr . Lanahan and Sister Michele along with their various other duties In the office. Mr. Lanahan has gone about trying to obtain the extra staff needed and is very hopeful that his problem of understaffing In the Financial Aid office will be resolved. Still, Lanahan teds the school is not taking seriously the amount of staff needed to take care of the large sum of money.

Dear Editor, As a former journalist and editor I can understand Typists' and-or Printers• errors creeping into*'original coDv.' Nevertheless mav I draw: attention to the following that appeared in the New Faculty column, Merciad, October 8. 1) If the 'mysterious letters C.S.S.R.' did begin to appear after my name I think I would have reason to begin worrying because I am not a card carrying member of the Communist Party of the Czechoslovakian Soviet Socialist Republic. (C.S.S.R.). No, honestly!! 2) I am a card carrying member of the C.SS.R. (Congregatio Sanctissimi Redemptoris) * usually referred to as, the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer. As a member of this apostolic religious group I espouse some communist principles—those that arise from having taken vows of obedience, poverty and chastity. But believe me I am not in any way,?make, shape or form affiliated to either theAJ.S.S.R. or the C.S.S.R.! ' \ 3) The title of the group to which If belong is 'Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer* as it appears in your column Jit may well be asked if there is any real difference. The answer is yes, not only a linguistic difference, but also aj very real theological difference. Most Holy as used here is a superlative of honorary title and is in no way an expression of comparison with others of the same kind. Holiest Redeemer is more expressive of a superlative of degree and so would indicate the existence of other but less holy Redeemers!! If this were true then the whole of Christology would be thrown into a new turmoil. Believe me there are enough problems in the theology of Christ, without giving Christ an added identity crisis. He might not recover as easily from being misiaentified as George Kidd did!! You realize, of course, that theologians are still trying to solve the problems that arise from the manuscript errors of scribes—the precursors of typists and* printers!! % Success to MERCIAD, the voice of the Mercyhurst Community. ittfiii Michael O'Connor, C.SS.R.

Documentation, he feels, is needed in order that the large amount of money granted by state, federal, and private contributors for specific students can be taken care of more easily. T Also, as new director, Mr. Lanahan hopes to develop clear guidelines, and procedures for students and their parents when they go about obtaining financial aid.

He also hopes to work through his office to help students utilize their own maximum, personal use of the financial aid available.

Hustlin' Cheerleaders
One of the most dynamic forces on campus nowadays is the 1 Hustlin HursU Cheerleaders. Everyone kwith any smidgen of school spirit will be hearing and seeing much more of these energetic gals as (he season gets underway. The squad, consisting of captaini Debbie Duda, co-captain Judy Mahoney, Cindy Bartolo, Patti Nestor, Cindy Byham, Delmarie Gore and Minnie Mickler is directed by Diane Walsh and student-advisor D« J. Kocik. Shooting for the November 10 exhibition game at Purdue, the girls have been devoting much time every week to brushing up old cheers, innovating new ones, and just generally polishing their "style." j The entire group is firmly convinced that this year's team will be one of the best Mercyhurst has turned out yet, and naturally they "expect strong student backing to spur (he Lakers on to a I winning season. Captain Debbie Duda noted last year student apathy* was widespread when it came to game attendance; Delmarie Gore suggested that (he addition of the new .Student Center should act as an impetus for more school spirit at the games, since it is in such easy walking .distance on the campus, and Senior Cindy Bartolo was quick to (hank all those who regularly showed up last year, and count on their future support this season also.

New Facul



Welcome Ms. Mamone To Mercyhurst Staff

New Frat Established
PHI BETA LAMBDA, the new business education and secretarial science fraternity has been established at Mercyhurst. Along with this organization, DECA, the distributive education fraternity is incorporated. Both clubs are professional student-oriented organizations to develop, promote, and foster interest in the fields of education through business and distributive skills and methods. J The activities of PHI BETA LAMBDA and DECA provide an opportunity for business students to prepare for business and office occupations. Members of PBL and DECA learn how to engage in individual and group business enterprises; how to hold office and direct the affairs of the group; howc to work with representatives of other youth organizations; and how to compete honorably with their colleagues on the local, state and national levels. ^PBL and DECA provide an opportunity for travel to state and national conferences and leadership conferences, visits to other chapters and business and industrial enterprises, and close contact with -successful businessmen and women.

As I walk into the office, my eyes first rest upon a long table with various dental formations sitting on it. There is a skull with a much obvious overbite and several other correct formations. Along with dental charts is a large mug, bearing the football name Steelers. & The owner of this professional looking office |is fBurnadette Mamone, the new. assistant director of the dental assisting lab. Originally from Pittsburgh, (which explains the Steeler mug), she went to West Virginia to attends West Liberty State College. « | j | Receiving her bachelor* of science degree in dental hygiene, RDHBS, Msjfe Mamone then became a certified dental assistant at? North! Carolina University. During her studies at West

Liberty State, she joined the American Dental Hygiene Association of which she is still a member. First becoming interested in a dental career because her brother is a dentist, she worked as a dental assistant upon completion of college. Ms. Mamone came to Erie three years ago and began teaching in the Millcreek School District. This summer! she was offered the job as the only fulltime person ton teach dental assistance at Mercyhurst and she accepted. s i I Among her duties in the dental lab are running the office, advising students, and overseeing the budget, i I J "My goal is *to achieve accreditation in j 1977 from the American Dental Association, and to make this department successful, " she says.

The most popular of all houseplants may^, be the philodendron; the most popular FLOWERING houseplant is almost certainly the African Violet. Both came -iinto vogue comparatively Jrecently^and through rather strange circumstances, that of the African Violet after the invention of the fluorescent light. | "African Violets—not at all related to true violets—were introduced into the United States at the turn of the century.jThey remained splendid curiosities for the rich, since their culture and care seemed beyond the most patient amateur horticulturist. Because of their tropical origins in Tanganyika (at levels? of 100 feet and higher) it was impossible to grow them in the unheated houses of the day. However, central heating was making great J inroads in American homes by the 1920's and 1930's. By the end of the Korean War, the African Violet cult had truly begun to blossom.

by Terry Kelly There is one thing that I can't stand on this campus and that is tht fan support for athletic events. -^ Granted we have no more Jesse Campbells or all-american tennis players but there are a lot of good athletes on this campus that should be noticed. ; I'm not saying you have to be Joe Pan and attend all and ever) event, but there are some interesting players and teams that should be supported. ^ Take for example the Women's tennis team. I watched them play and there were hardly any people there and they played until it was > dark, having the match called. Now all the members of the women's tennis team which include; Mary Ann King, Rose Ann Bauer, Andy Sotelo, Pam Barbato, Jane Kerstetter, Mildred Choice, Paula Pizzat, Michelle Durant, and Delia Cavanaugh, hold tight, because I know how it feels when people don't show up to see you in action. - At least people will know who you are even if they don't want to ; < watch you play. \ & T < ^g* T Congratulations to the Soccer team for winning their first game ever, which was against Geneva. I told everyone at the beginning that things would look up, and they did. With the inexperience of a first year team, Coach Shlmpeno has a lot of promise to look forward to. On the Intramural Football scene, the Henry's have surfaced to the top of the standings with a 3-0 record. Pot Luck, Rolling Thunder Review, and P-Funk have also been impressive with 2-1 marks. Relatively High, once an MFL power, and the Family have yet to win a game. % This week I have analysed the MFL quarterbacks and their success in the first three games. ^? How can anybody stop the Henry's passing combination of Mark Hoak to Bob Ferdiani? j \ >P?| In the Henry's first three games, Ferdiani has caught six touchdown passes for a totahof 220 yards not to mention all other passes. Along with Hoak, Rolling Thunder Review sports a fine quarterback who can run and throw in Jim Deffner. Deffner has passed for two touchdowns and run for three. \ Dan "Chipmonk" Downing has showed versatility as he has run for two touchdowns and caught one touchdown pass. He also quarterbacks and has thrown one touchdown pass. Kevin Butler of P-Funk also has looked promising as he has connected on three touchdown passes and has run for two morel The last of my quarterbacks is Ray Korzanowski of Pot Luck. Korzanowski has* passed for three touchdowns including two 45 yarders to Lament Prince, and has one scoring run.*; ?,: Next week I will analyze the defensive specialists.
