MERCYHURST COLLEGE

OCTOBER 29, 1976

By Chris VanWaganen Coordinating student activities on any campus can be a hectic experience, particularly during a holiday such as the upcoming Halloween weekend. But to Jan Gatti, Mercy hurst's student activities director, being allowed to concentrate wholly on her job must come as a welcome relief. Jan Gatti has been at the center or at the edges of much controversy since coming to Mercyhurst two months ago. She got the job late in August when the decision was made not to rehire Frank Sirotnak—a decision that drew heavy criticism from some Sirotnak loyalists. Ms. Gatti also inherited a budget substantially cut due to the financially disastrous Harry Chapin concert of last spring. In order to create some breathing room,. Ms. Gatti aggressively presented to the Student Government an idea for cutting down expenses. As a result, Mercyhurst students are paying for movies and use of the pool tables for the first time in years—another decision which has not set well in some quarters. Ms. Gatti feels qualified for her job. She brought to Mercyhurst two years' experience in related fields, as communications coordinator for Harriot Medical Center and public relations director for Health Planning of North Western Pennsylvania. But the best preparation for her current job, she feels, came after her graduation (with a B.S. in Health Service Administration) from Ithaca, N.Y., College. "I was program assistant to the director of student activities at Ithaca College," she says, "where I had good response from the kids." The response from the Mercyhurst community, she feels, has not been uniformly so good. Asked what she had done and what she plans to do in the near future as •Mercyhurst's student activities director, she replied, "As of now, not really too much because I can't find what the kids vt*ant." Ms. Gatti explained that she did not begin her position until September 1, two weeks before school opened. She added that it is nearly impossible to schedule worthwhile major activities on such short notice. "Acts have to t>e booked far in advance," she said. "Otherwise. you end up paying through ihe nose. Ms. Gatti feels Mercyhurst students are generally apathetic toward campus activities. "If an activity doesn't have a bottle attached to it, she said, "nobody comes." Thus tar she has planned the Halloween dance and upcoming coffeehouse performances, and carried out activities previously scheduled. Asked if she feels students appreciate the job she is doing, she replied, "some of them do, some of them don't, some ol them don't care." Ms. Gatti emphasizes that she wants to please the students but she's "not a miracle worker." She teels Student Government should formulate an activities committee to work with her in finding out what kinds ol activities students want. And she says things will be more organized by winter term.

ACTIVE PROFILE—New Student Activities Director Jan Gatti's first two months at Mercyhurst ha\t* been bus v. oxentful and at times controversial. Gatti talks about her experiences here, student attitudes and activities for the coming year in a story featured at right.

McAuley: Jump in A Lake
"Welcome to Lake McAuley, read one sign last week at Mercyhurst's newest recreation spot. "Lake McAuley" was literally an overnight sensation, created when last Wednesday's? heavy rains flooded the middle portion of the McAuley Hall Lounge with over an inch of water. The rain set in while construction workers were in the process of repairing the roof. The damage report ran into the thousands — of laughs. Employees, students and a workstudy crew tried to bail out the lounge with mops and buckets throughout the night, but finally abandoned ship. Incoming rain cascading down the west wall quickly caused that part of the building to be christened "Sr. Phyllis's 9 Waterfall* ; in honor of Housing Director Sr. Phyllis Aiello. Signs went up posting times for such activities as swimming, scuba diving, crew and skinnydipping. Applications were taken for a Mark Spitz tan club. The tide went out, eventually, and luckily little damage was done to the game machines and furniture. No drownings were reported With the weather clearing, work on the unfinished roof was expected to continue this week.

Egan Hall: A Family Affair
Hardwood floors, uncontrollable heaters, community bathrooms, cold drafts, minimal security and only three showers: This is Egan Hall. Not the best of living conditions, admits Mercyhurst journalism student Carol Snyder, herself a resident of Egan. But she, like her dorm mates, chose Egan over other campus housing and says, "I wouldn't live anywhere else." Snyder talked to other residents and found that the Egan "family" has a different sort of appeal which more than makes up for what the building lacks in style. Herptory: The old dorm, with all its faults, has a certain warmth and a friendliness. All the girls who live in Egan stress the good location and the homey atmosphere. "There is a special closeness here," said one. "It's so easy to get to know everyone." Egan's locale also has its advantages. •'We're centrally located," one resident said. "Egan Hall is close to the cafeteria and McAuley!" Also, we are near the library and most classes. Best of all, we don't have to brave the cold to go to meals. Walking through Egan, one often sees a group of girls just talking; maybe about school, or home. Everyone reaches out to help each other. . Other dorms can brag about their suite bathrooms and. showers, carpeting and fancy lounges. The girls of Egan have something that is special to them—their family.

NEW SENATORS—Mercyhurst College Senate President Edward Gallagher (right) welcomes new Senate members (in ascending order) Chris Filippi, Jim Deffner, , Jamie Yule and Steve Ryan. Not pictured: Sr. Phyllis Aiello and Dr. Robert Blessing. The Senate has completed much of its preliminary work and is ready to move into full session. A story appears on page 5.

Incumbent Democrat David C. DiCarlo and Republican Leo P. Weir, candidates for the office of Third District State Assemblyman, came out in support of more state funds for students in higher education in seperate interviews with The Merciad. Both men said they would support and vote for measures that would raise funding of the Institutional Assistance Grants (I AG) program to at least its 1974 Both also said they support an increase in the Maximum PHEAA grant from $1200 to $1800 per year. DiCarlo, whose wife, Beverly, is an assistant professor of business at Mercyhurst, cited his "responsibility to preserve independent academic services by focusing on certain areas of his record. The incumbent noted that ne

Intercession: Drawing Near
The .registration period for Intersession will begin Wednesday, November 10 (not November 3, as stated on the form letters distributed through the campus mail) and continue through November 29. The Intersession class period will run from November 29 through December 17. Complete class schedules will be made available Friday, October 29 or Monday, November 1. Further details will be published in next week's issue of The Merciad.

By John Bruno sponsored the IAG bill in 1973 and again the following year. In 1975 he proposed an amendment to raise IAG funding to $12 millior per year, double its current level. DiCarlo added that he supported legislation to increase lowinterest loans to $18,000 and loans for students not eligible for PHEAA grants from $2,000 to $2,500. The candidates' opinions differed, however, on questions of lowering the drinking age and on the legalization or decriminalization of possession of marijuana. Weir favors lowering the drinking age to 18. Doing so, he said, will mean "young people won't have to patronize the bars in New York state and will avoid any accidents that might occur on the way back home. " . Weir added that if a person can

legally own a tavern at age 18, he saw no reason why that person should be prohibited from con suming alcoholic beverages. DiCarlo, however, opposes lowering the drinking age. He cited statistics that showed alcohol addiction among 18-21 year olds rising nearly seven per cent in the last year. Ironically, DiCarlo, a former tavern owner, fought in 1973 and 1974 to lower the drinking age to 18. Now he supports legislation for stiller fines against drunk driving and agaiast owners who serve alcohol to minors. On the marijuana issue DiCarlo favors decriminalization but opposes legalization; Weir opposes both. _, Weir said the public "is not yet exposed to all the facts about marijuana and they don't have a real idea of what damage it can

Reflection On The 60's
College life is so peaceful these days. All over the country, burly jocks and pretty coeds are happily attending classes with little on Itheir minds other than how to pull a passing grade in bi-sci or, more importantly, how to find a good party afterwards. Oh, there are problems that arise, like who's going to pay the phone bill? .. . jwhat should we wear today? . . . who should we elect as class president? . . . and rah-rah sis boom bah, sure hope we beat that team. But for the most part, life is carefree. i Ahh, tranquility . . . certainly not like 10 years ago. Remember the 60's, with all those horrible people we read about in Life Magazine? Why those long-haired, dope-smoking, rock-throwing hippies. Mothers from coast to coast were losing sleep every night worrying about what horrible fate might befall their sons and daughters. What was wrong with those kids anyway? Well, they cared about the immorality of war. Every day hundreds of their peers were being killed or maimed in an undeclared war that a few men controlled. Many refused, understandably, to go. They took* stands on civil rights. They refused j to accept traditional school rules that were made without their consent. They spoke out on government corruption. And they persevered despite being shot down by less than dignified national f guards. They cared. Granted, the means to their end was sometimes questionable. Their motives, however, never were. They had the courage and the convictions to speak out on important issues. M * Sure glad it's not like/that now, right? We've got enough to worry about. "What should we do, go to the movies or study?" "Gosh, I don't know." if mean, who cares that thisp week we elect a new president? That doesn't seem to be a very important matter around campus these days. J * V Inflation is skyrocketing, the environment is being exploited, taxes are ever increasing, workmanship -is ever decreasing—but who cares? We've got to worry about who's going to pay for Saturday night's keg. , .M&. _ & . Things sure are simpler now. No more Bob Dylans or Arlo Guthries. Now we have Tony Orlando and Donny Osmond. I guess we should bejhappy. Somehow, C don't feel so happy. In fact, I feel downright disgusted. Maybe it's time to sit back and take account of ourselves. Tim Miller &' *

Seniors, don't wait any longer! It is now time to be writing student resumes. The Career Planning and Placement Center encourages all seniors to $ complete their resumes as soon as possible. The following, are a few suggestions of what not to do when writing your resume: 1) Do not make resume too long; stick to pertinent facts. Yet, do not make Jit too sketchy. Names and dates of employment is not always enough. Stress what you have done and personal accomplishments. 2) Do not put negative thoughts into mind of reader with statements like,, "You may not want a woman on this lob, but l am well qualified; or, Although I've never worked as a buyer, I'm sure I can do the job;" or "Due to personal conflict with my boss, I'm seeking a new job." 3) Do not use a photograph unless you feel very confident that it will present a positive image. fe Remember, ^ though, that conscious and sub-conscious judgments are often made from a photo and very Soften these Judgments are negative. If in doubt, do not send a photo. By-law, no prospective employer can require that a photo be sent with an application or resume, f AE 4) Do not list references. If a company shows interest in you, it will ask for; them. Do indicate that references are available upon request, j 5) Do not tag your resume witt an incorrect: or inflexible title such as "Personnel Manager". This can restrict your opportunities if your qualifications and interests are more broad than the title indicates.. F 6) Don't be sloopy. Don't ^ v ceed one page, if possible. Never exceed two pages^Don'r use carbons or dittos for copies. 7) Omit flrrelevantT personal data. * I F^*"^ ''. * It is j not necessary to include such personal data as your maritial status, age, number and age of children or heal t h. It is also not necessary to include height and weight unless the job has height and weight restrictions. No matter what your field, though, an important aspect in resume writing is that.it reflect and express you. Be original and creative, but show good taste. Write a resume that;; gives a prospective employer some insight into who you are.J^ These are just a few guidelines for writing a resume. The Career Planning and Placement Office in Old Main 204 encourages students to use the facilities ^available there. £

The Mercyhurst soccer team ended their first season ever last week. • ' The Lakers tied Youngstown State l-l last Saturday to finish the season with a 1-5-2 record. The game remained scoreless until Youngstown's Jack Ansley scored with 6:45 gone in the second period. * Coach Dave Shimpeno believed his team was suffering what he called, "a let down." "We certainty were down when Jose Moguel's goal was nullified by an offside call. We just couldn't score," stated Shimpeno. Although the Lakers were down, they dominated play for the final 15 minutes of the game and were led by junior Dave Maries.' f Then, with only 2:30 remaining

to play, Laker booter -Denny Szkult scored the tying goal, thus sending the match into overtime. In the two overtime periods, the Lakers * continued their dominance with many excellent scoring opportunities but "we just couldn t get the ball in the net," said Shimpeno. Coach Shimpeno also noted that he thought they had the victory when Moguel got a penalty shot in the second period. "However, a good save on a good shot kept us from being victorious,", said Shimpeno. * * Shimpeno concluded by saying that, "I'm disappointed in the tie but we're still a good team. After all, it takes a good team to play badly and still not lose." f t SOCCER NOTES: % Senior Szkult' became the

teams leading scorer when he recorded his third goal of the season in the Youngstown game. Moguel, Gary Weber, and Doug Clark each finished with two goals apiece. Coach Shimpeno believes that his team has *a few all-star candidates. The voting for allstars takes place on November 10th. •>• r Five seniors ended their soccer careers last Saturday. They are Moguel, Patrick Condrin, James Culhane, John Strickland, and Szkult. Moguel, a business major from Merida, Yucatan,; Mexico was surprised with the good student support and believes, "a lot of things were accomplished during the first season.' * * Moguel plans to go Ion to

graduate school for his business masters next fall. Condrin sees the future of Mercyhurst soccer as a very good one. The humanities major from Altoona, Pa. said that, "with a majority' of young players returning under the supervision of Coach shimpeno, the future of Mercyhurst soccer looks very bright." Culhane. from Yorktown Heights, New York, commends Coach Shimpeno for bringing soccer to Mercyhurst. "Last year there was simply a soccer club. 1 give credit to Mr. Shimpeno for making things happen," he said.
