Plan iTo! Revise Liberal Studies MovjnglToward Senate Hearing
by Sue Fuss p Debate has begun in the academic policies committee on the proposed prevision of the liberal studies requirement. The proposal is the final revision presented by the division chairpersons and Dr. John Millar, dean of the college and vice president of academic services. K &£.i g It consists of three parts. The proposal requires incoming students to take entrance exams in reading, writing and math, and to take 100 level courses in those subjects they did not pass. % Other provisions include required liberal studies courses in whatjjare called six developmental areas (world civilization, American, heritage, human development, science, creative arts and spiritual growth), and a program of co-curriculars, that is, participation in student organizations and campus activities. aw§8£ At the beginning of this week's meeting Dr. Paul Jurkowitz, chairman of academic policies, said the committee will attach a lislj off suggestions approved by the committee before sending it on to the full College Senate, fe j Debate covered many concerns of both committee members and non-members. Dr. ^Barbara Weigert, associate*education professor, '£ suggested t a curriculum committee should reexamine the proposal. ?•'* v?- "It's insufficiently developed," said {[Planning Director Tom Billingsly, adding his opinion that there was snot enough time to complete it. The Board of Directors requested a proposal by June 3. a fig 3 | g After over an hour of discussion the committee adjourned to meet again Sunday evening, April 29, when it I hopes- to finish its discussion. The proposal will then go to the full senate, :the president and the board. • M * h

MSG; May I Boost Activities Fee
Mercyhurts's new student government officers; will get a first indication on Monday, April 30, of what kind of budget they will be working with next year. MSG will open talks on raising the student activities fee to $50 a year, a $15 increase. President Mike Heller said the increase twas meant to offset recurring problems with the school yearbook and rising prices for activities. \ Heller said a larger yearbook budget would allow the school to offer the Praeterita free to all students. Guaranteed sales will! also enable publishers to give the school discounts of possibly 50 percent in printing costs, he added. \ % U 5 If the increase is passed, the nominal entrance charges I on some activities might be eliminated, Heller said. *"Charging two bits here and 50 cents there hasn't been worth the effort, in my* opinion," he told The Merciad.,''It's kept people from going to a lot of things. Based on a fulltime enrollment of 1000 students the increased fee will boost the MSG budget $15,000 above its present $39,000. "We have to do this to keep up with inflation," Heller said. "We hope to expand activities, too." A check of 100 Pennsylvania colleges ^and universities by Treasurer Steve Frisina showed an average yearly activities fee of about $100, Hefier said. % W Also, at next week's 4 p.m. meeting MSG will • discuss the proposed changes in general education requirements. **?}* A special meeting to coordinate Activity Day will be held today, Friday, April 27 at 6 p.m. in the student union coffee house, -. /*« Positions for officers of the Student Activities Committee (SAC) for the 79-80 school year will be decided soon. Those who wish to* be interviewed for the positions should sign up in the student union starting on Monday, April 30. *
