If conditions get much worse, in fact, the only remaining evidence of life in Erie County will be the seminars*on the energy shortage.^ Jff&j 1 An exaggeration, perhaps, but there is an {underlying point.

Thanks From Admissions

Straight Facts Please? '
In regard to a "Letter to the Editor in last week's Merciad entitled "Why All The Fuss?" I feel this Edinboro student does notfrealljfunderstand the Mercyhurst system. | The semester system is a very workable system 1 agree, but we want to be unique. How many other schools can you name which are as flexible as to give students a choice in taking Z semesters, 3 semesters or both. As for a 10 week schedule as we presently have, the students are pushed more because of less time. But that doesn't mean that we don't get into the "meat" of the course. And we don't attend regular classes for 1 hour, 25 minutes. onlv 55 minutes. As for the second question}in that letter, "What is so important about a free Wednesday?" Wednesdays are used as a day of studying, going to talk to teachers, working, relaxation and taking care of a wide variety of personal needs you may not have other time to do. As for recovering from Tuesday .night beer blasts, I believe that this is a minority. I'm sun students from other schools party on weeknights but the a r e no a s y f fortunate as us to have a great system which allows us free Wednesdays. If youJhave been observing Baldwin Ilalltfor the past : weeks, you must have been observing J the minority forementioned. Baldwin Hall has quiet hours starting at 10:00 p.m. which are enforced on Tuesday nights.

To The Editor-

Encore!
I spent last Thursday night inI the Little Theater watching the production "And Miss Reardon Drinks A Little." and feeling as if I was getting much more than my money's worth. I thought the play was excellent and it is a credit to Mercyhurst to have such a fine Theater Department. jr. Everything about the production seemed so professional. The setting for the play brought the audience right into the action. • Everyone involved in it deserves a big round of applause. The students on stage^played each individualf part so convincingly. that I found myself almost becoming a part of them. I hope that more people have the opportunity to see this excellent production and I especially hope that the Mercyhurst Community realizes what an asset their Theater Department is. An Erie Resident

Added Worry For Seniors

To The Editor-

Response To Review
I am writing the letter in response to the movie review which appeared in the January 28 edition of Merciad. Mr. Riazzi contends A Star is Born is the hit*of the year. He describes Streisand and.Kristoferson as dynamic and full * f talent. He also believes, tragically enough, » ; hat Barbra Streisand, should be nominated as Actress of the Year for her performance. A review such as this shows little insight into the art of the cinema. The third re-creation of A Star is Born is trash and a ^typical example of modern American film commercialism. So much has been said condemning this bomb that anything else I say would seem both repetitious and plagiaristic. I Suffice it to say compared! to Janet Gay nor and Judy Garland, the stars of the first two editions of the film, Barbrab Streisand is* an amateur. Kr is tofer son's hair-brained performance doesn't deserve the energy it would take to critique it. | , I think it is a good idea to have movie reviews in The Merciad. However, let the^reviewing be done by someone who knows aat least a! little about cinema art.

Among the many worries some seniors are faced with is the completion of the English ConTH« Vote* of Iht MtfoyHurtt Community dltionjrequirements.

Movie Review

Miss Reardon' Confusing Mixture
by: Chris Van Wagenen person. What caused her disturbance? We never really find out, except that it has something to do with her being a teacher. Her sisters, Catherine Reardon (Maxine Krasowski) and Ceil Adams (Andrea Kupetz) stand on opposite sides of the fence when it comes to helping Anna. Catherine wants to take care of Anna at home while Ceil wants to commit her so she can receive psychiatric help. On the other hand, Anna is busy trying to point out to Catherine that Ceil is a selfish snob who would help herself to anything. Maryann Rozsas is Anna, and performs her role superably. Another standout, oddly enough is Joseph Grodecki, as Bob Stein. Andrea Kupetz portrays Ceil 4 Adams and is convincing in her role. By the end of the play one feels like strangling her. The other major character, Maxine Krasowski portrays Catherine Reardon. Ms. Krasowski (who is the drinking Reardon) like the others, performs admirably. The other characters, Michael Phillips as the delivery boy, Mary Ann Ferraro as Mrs. Pentrano and Diane Liggett as Fleur Stein, all perform well. If you enjoy good acting then I suggest you give "Miss Reardon" a chance. However, if the story is more of your concern, then I suggest you take a. compass because "Miss Reardon" is lost, someplace between comedy and tragedy. "And Miss Reardon Drinks A Little" will be performed February 3,4, and 5 in the Mercyhurst Little Theater. Tickets are free to all Mercyhurst students, $1.00 for Senior citizens and $2.50 for all outsiders. 'L £3 •

On Friday January 28, the Mercyhurst Little Theater presented "And Miss Reardon Drinks A Little." Overall, the performance of the cast was impressive but unfortunately, the play itself tends to be someplace between a comedy and a tragedy. Whatever the play is supposed to accomplish, it fails. If it's a tragedy then why do we laugh three quarters through it? If it's a comedy then why such a somber ending? If it's a tragiccomedy, then why isn't it a bit more balanced? Your guess is as good as mine. The play surrounds Anna Reardon (Maryann Rozsas) who is an emotionally, unstable

FEBRUARY 4.1977

by Terry Kelly Due to the current natural gas shortage, almost all sporting events around the Mercyhurst community have been cancelled. The men's basketball team has had two games against Slippery Rock and Alliance cancelled. The Lakers sport a current record of 10-5. The women's basketball team have had games against Allegheny and Villa cancelled. The Lakerettes were on the road last week when they beat Westminster 51-30 to up their record to 2-1. They have been hampered by the loss of Jane Kerstetter, who has a leg injury. She may be lost to the team for the entire season. I Just can't say enough about the Laker basketball team and all the talent that works for Coach Dick Fox. Before the season, I'll bet everyone thought the team would be at best, .500. The Lakers have eight games remaining and have a good chance to turn in a great performance and maybe a District 18 bid. With only Jeff Davern graduating, next year the Fox boys should clean up everyone in sight. m % i W* % £h gt& | The Slippery Rock game on Monday, February 114, will I be a reunion between Laker Bill Link and his older brother Chuck, 6'8" center for the Rode. .. « *J < The crew team has begun working out for a spring season which many think will be very successful.
