Another problem that SAC will encounter will be the communication between the committee and the \student body. Almost everyone agrees that communication practically doesn't exist.

If the drinking age does go down, than I see no reason why we couldn't serve drinks in the union." "A rathskeller would be good. It would be controlled and it would make for a good social event," said Benton. t for now though, SAC is young and their ideas are positive, but can they be accepted by student government? Questions of this sort should be answered soon. Said one student, "I feel that the input of this committee will have a far more reaching effect than that of MSG." Either way, the future of SAC lies within student government." f{

"The Arabs' enemy* is not Israel," proclaimed Asher Nairn, consul general for Israel, during a recent speech at Mercyhurst. Niam spoke to a small, but interested audience in the faculty lounge on Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 8 p.m. &j& i | "I don't consider them enemies," Nairn said. "I think the Arabs' enemies are poverty and ignorance." \ Nairn said that in a nation that has - twenty-two countries, (he referred to the Mideast as a nation) :\ "The Jews can't and won't be accepted as a partner." In 1978, Israel lost one per cent of its population in wars with the Arabs/he said. After that* war, 800,000 Jews left Arab nations for Israel. 1 "We are there now and it's our home. We are willing to share, but they are not," he said. Will there be peace in the Middle East? '• "We are turning back to Geneva, but the Arabs want the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) to become a member of this conference,";he

The PLO, however, has a covenant to destroy Israel. Nairn stated he cannot see;Israel accepting the PLO into the conference because of that. "Negotiation with the PLO has nothing to do with making peace. Palestine has nothing to do with this organization," said Nairn. Nairn indicated that Israel will

not] succumb to terrorists, especially not the PLO. £ Nairn also feels that Americans should be more sympathetic toward Israel. "We are the victims," he said emphatically. "We are the ones being attacked." "What do you expect us to do. wait to be killed off?" he asked angrily.^ it ^ When asked whether or not Israel would accept the PLO in Geneva, Nairn laughed. "If they change their convena nt, it will not be the PLO". he said. What of peace in the Middle East? d % ~| xl fj "We want peace and Israel will enjoy peace once elections take place in the Arab world," me said. Nairn stressed,^ though, that peace cannot take place without the cooperation of the Arabs. "This idea of, 'I won't sit with you, I won't talk with you, I won't eat with you': This can't bring about peace. What type of peace would you call that?" said Nairn. Though he hopes I for peace, Nairn sees the future as bleak until the Arabs are willing to negotiate. He expressed * deep concern about the state of his nation, but was optimistic about the future. " \ *j "We are the only state in the Middle East that has dared the Arabs. They want the Middle East, but we're not giving it up," he said.

In summing up the situation of the Mid-East, Nairn pointed out that the Arabs started all wars. "All the wars were started by the Arabs, but we always won, he said. jft Nairn was proud of this and pointed out that the Yom Kippur War of 1973, brought Israel just 100 kilometers from Cairo, Egypt's capital. ^ During the question period one faculty member asked Nairn if it

wasn't true that Israel was defeated in that war. *^ $?H "Discrepancies about the battle are covered by their imaginations.,; If he (Arabs) doesn't; like jit, he changes it," Nairn responded. * j I How long will the Mideast war go on?

To the Editor: t • •> We, the students of Mercyhurst College, residing in Egan Hall on this 24th day of October in the year 1977 of our Lord, do detest the outrageous conditon of the Mercyhurst Gates!

It's chipped. &* This is an outward disgrace since Mercyhurst gates reflect the image of the school from the public view. We have had on several occasions severe mocking of our school due to this prong. We have heard numerous rumors that neighboring colleges and universities are introducing [hew cheers during basketball season condemning the state of chipness our prong is in. They even have the audacity to refrain from calling us the Lakers and re titling us the Chippers. Are wetosuccumb to This abuse? Must we live in constant fear of this harassment?

... From Mart Cipriani

SAC has established at least some sort of position, which they plan to take soon. The first meeting of SAC is Thursday and already there is talk of a major concert and why not. . Think about it. Allegheny College in Meadville with a budget of $20,000, manages to have a major concert at least once a month. •. \ ;., Their budget of $20,00 is half the size of MSG who boast of a How do they do it? I asked that question and the answer was simple. Allegheny charges both outsiders and students the same price, usually five to six dollars. K Is SAC wrong in taking this feat on? No, they're not wrong. Students have been asking for a major concert since I've been here, K i In 1975, they got that chance, but literally blew it. Harry Chapin was the artist and left RUS (now MSG) $7,000 in the hcAe. '* * Why? 1) The Concert was held during the week of finals. 2) The concert was held on a Monday night. 3) The concert was held at Gannon College. 4) The concert had an artist that not all of us are familiar with. 5) The concert was held during the last week of school. i t Finally the concert was during a time that both Gannon and Behrend were out of school.I '*. fw With that many odds going against it, I'm surprised they weren't $10,000 in the hole. *£* We can do it. We can do anything. That's our money that MSG controls and it's about time, we use some voice. • * SAC has that voice and will use it if we wish them to do so. Unfortunately MSG over rules any and all suggestions which come from SAC. - . t Jj • £| u-; So let's watch it. If it's a major concert we want, then it's a major concert we'll get. * ? r ^| Healings on the tuition tax credit bill introduced last month In the senate are scheduled for January 12, 13, and 19, before the Senate Finance Committee. i The legislation, whose principal sponsors are Senators Robert Packwood and Daniel Moynihan, was introduced September26. •: &;§.; :.',:•' This legislation would allow taxpayers to subtract one-half of the tuition they pay, up to $500.00 maximum credit per student, directly from income taxes they owe. This credit could be applied to college or graduate schools. The treasury would refund the difference between tax credit and tax-liability. ' \, • Since introducing the bill last month, five, more senators have co-sponsored the bill. This makes a total of 48 senators on the bill, 13 of whom are members of tax-writing Senate Finance Committee. Hopefully mis will take some burden off the middle class, if passed. * For those of you who actually thought that Dr. William P. Garvey was selling appliances. I have some bad news, he's
not. '*

Dr. Garvey simply posed for a friend who asked him to do an ad in the Erie Times. Anyway could you really picture a former dean of Mercyhurst selling appliances?



/In our Constitution, we have an amendment that states that there is a freedom of the press. Apparently this isn't the case in South Africa. \ There is a lengthy battle which is still in progress, between the South African government and the independent newspapers. This has been a long-standing conflict between the Afrikaen officials and the English speaking people. The reason for these strained circumstances is the fact that the white government feels threatened because of the growing black movement. Independent press is criticizing this movement, mostly in favor of the black movement, and the government doesn't like them publishing their opinions. . So, because some of these editors have made their opinions public by the use of their newspapers, the government is banning them. This banning restricts an individual's right to associate with more than two people at a time and to be confined to his home for lengthy periods. South Africa is the first nation in Africa to legalize banning and it is the hope of the Africans that other nations will not follow, t Maurits Caransa, millionaire real-estate operator and developer, was kidnapped early Saturday morning while he was leaving an Amsterdam club in the Netherlands. Spectators reported that Ave persons forced Caransa into a car at 1:16a.m. A:- , .Later that day, the evening newspaper received a call from an unknown person who said, "You are speaking to the Red Army Faction. We have Caransa. You will hear from us." This is thought to be part of a group of West German terrorists that have been plaguing people for some time. Other business persons are now beginning j to feel threatened because of - the many bombings, kidnappings. hijackings, and murders that have been occurring In the Netherlands. ' Police have absolutely no clues and they are wondering whether it was a common crime or if there was some political involvement. 7-'M

As winter nears here in Erie, you can count the nice, sunny, mild days on the fingers of one hand. Now if you like to play tennis, the weather up here certainly poses a problem. It is certainly a good thing then that we have indoor tennis courts to use here at Mercy hurst, or do we? If you go over to the Campus Center and try to reserve playing time on these courts, you will encounter still another problem. There are very few time slots available. The times offered are either early in the morning or the middle of the afternoons. I'm sure most students are not going to get up at 8 a.m. to play tennis, and there are such things as classes in the afternoons. p The time when most students have free are nights, and there are no times available in the evening, that is just from 9 p.m. till midnight, on Saturday nights of all times. What is the reason for these absurd times? I would really like to know. Asking around, I found out that all the reasonable times are taken up by benefactors. When the reservation sheets are made available on Fridays, there are huge amounts of time set aside for these people. i Some times are used by the men's and women's tennis teams as well as intra murals. This is certainly understandable so there is no argument here. It is these "prime times" used up by the benefactors that I question. \ I have been told that the building was donated to Mercyhurst and we have no authority over these people who use it. If this is so, why tell us that we are entitled to time every week when we really aren't offered much time at all? We're dishing out the big bucks to come here. Is it too much to ask to be able to play tennis when we want to? Why can't the tennis teams set aside the times and then let r The Student Activities Committee (SAC), which had been only a good idea until last Wednesday, is now a reality. It is the students pick from what's left. ^ .,a After the students who want to use the courts, get the hoped that, given a couple weeks to get organized, SAC will times they would like to have, then the benefactors or make the next big jump—from paper committee to functioning body.

They are Darlene Webb, Mark Cipriani president; Greg Brewer, vice president; Mike Heller, treasurer; and Holly Benton, secretary.

Lakers Most Tough Grove City
The playoff hopeful Mercyhurst Laker soccer team, with an overall record of 6-4, will host powerful! Grove City College in their season finale this Saturday, Nov. 5, at Tullio field at 1:00 p.m. A Laker win over 10-3 Grove City could mean a NAIA playoff berth for Mercyhurst. However,! coach" Dave Shimpeno's charges must first defeat a Grove City team which is already NCAA playoff bound and whose only losses have come to powerhouses Pitt.,c Slippery Rock, and Indiana, Pa. Mercyhurst mentor Shimpeno stated that the Lakers are 1 'distinct' underdogs in the contests "i •; "Grove Cilty is definitely the best team we nave seen all year," said Shimpeno, "and I know they will really try to blow us out." "However, they can {be By Bob Derda Jr. beaten!" concluded the Laker skipper. "Our offense must and will score." J "' 3 Regarding any chances of a Mercyhurst playoff bid, 3 Shim peno remarked that the Grove City match should "tell the story." I "If we win, I don't see how they (NAIA playoff committee) can keep us'out," said Shimpeno. "And, even if we lose, we will still be considered for a bid since we have a winning record. However, it's doubtftd that we would get one if our record dropped to 6-5?\ Coach Shimpeno won soccer's version of the Family Feud as his forces defeated his brother George's Edinboro Scots. . Mercyhurst showed what they are really made of whenf they came back from a two goal deficit, a feat which Shimpeno said "is unheard of in soccer." Edinboro held a 2-0 lead until the Laker,; Doug Clark rammed in a score with 29:46 gone in the first period. j John Nystrom tied the score two minutes later asithe first period ended even at 2-2. In the \ second half, Nystrom proved to be too j much for the Scots as he scored his seventh goal of the season at the 28:40 mark. k At Wheeling, the Lakers made it seven wins in their last eight outings as the 'Hurst halfbacks got into the scoring act for the first time this season. Scoring their first goals of the season for Mercyhurst were John "Woody" Woodruff and Chuck Farina. Doug dark also notched his fifth goal this season in the Lakers' conquest of Wheeling College. JL

"The final match was the most exciting as the Lakerettes seesawed with Villa, then got tough at the end for a 15-13 victory. The team stands at 1-2 in the Keystone Conference and shows a 4-9 record overall. § Captain Sue Fagan said, "Our defense and our spiking have been our strong points. We seem to be choking on our serves, though, and must improve our offense." T| jy Ms. Fagan said the season has been disappointing and the record should be better. "I hope we'll get it all together in our four conference games remaining," said Fagan. /< As their home season has ended, the Lakerettes visit Fredonia on November 1, travel to Westminster, Villa and a final game at Behrend on November 9.
