Goals Of Mercyhurst i | Outlined In Master Plan
The office of President William P. Garvey has >composed a : master plan in order to more clearly define the goals and ambitions of Mercyhurst College. This plan, covering the years 1981-1986, outlines objectives to be realized in those years, as well as strategiesforthis realization. The plan relates to all areas of the college, including academic developments, student services development,- and the development ofv, the school's financial resources. As of now, the plan is simply a proposal; it has not been approved by the Student Senate, nor by the Board of Trustees. This formal review g process should be completed by November of this year. j; Much of the Master Plan's text deals with enrollment management According to the proposal, the college wishes both to increase the size of its enrollment,

and to adopt a more selective admissions policy based primarily on high school performance and class rank. Other goals in this area include: the development of a special loan program for students, the computerization of registration procedures and the development of a program for marginal students. Another area given much embasis in the plan is athletic §evelopment. Goals* in intercollegiate athletics •, include the addition of both a men's and a women's swimming team, the construction of crew tanks by the year 1984, and the hiring of a fulltime women's athletic directorcoach. The college also hopes to involve at least 50 percent of the student body in some aspect of Intramural athletics. Mercyhurst also has a number of .construction plans. Some*of thesej are: the development of handicap access to Baldwin and Old Main, construction of a P h y s i c a l FtftnessSi'rail throughout campus, construction of a new PfryslcafFitriess Cerilier, purchase of Sesler Apartments, and the repla cement of Baldwin's roof.

Loan Changes Explained; : Parental Loan Begins 0££
* Changes in the student loan program and the addition of a % parental loan program have been announced by Barry Zembower, the Director of Financial Aid at Mercyhurst College. After October l, 1981, students whose parents have an adjusted gross income of $30,000 or more must complete a "needs test" in order to be considered for a loan. < j L - i "The needs test is relatively liberal," said Zembower. He added that the form is approximately only 10 lines long and will only be "a couple of minute's work." f A student's expected family contribution plus any financial aid received by the student subtractedfromthe total college costs determine the amount of loan a student may borrow. The impact of the needs test will not be as significant at Mercyhurst as iUwould be*in a public college, stated Zembower. 2£ -JJP t > * 'Because tuition is usually less in the public sector, the expected family contribution together with otherfinancialaid awards may equal or be close to total college costs. This would mean the student would not be able to take out a student loan, t 1 Private schools fared well with this type of federal financial aid cutback, said Zembower. considering other options which may have been chosen. A $25,000 needs test was one of the alternative budget cut options.! , A new parental loan program has recently begun, said Zembower. Parents can now borrow up to $3,000 per each dependent child for each academic year. -3 The parental loans were approved underformerPresident Garter at a 9 per cent interest rate. If the loan monejbis disbursed before October 17 the interest rate will remain atsT per cent Funds given after October 1 will be at a 14 per cent interest rate. i^ <* \£&£& J Parents are given 10 years to repay the loan, said Zembower. Repayment begins -60 days after the first disbursement. 7 \ •*£ Jf ''As opposed to coming up with the money out of the pocket, it's a super deal," said Zembower,. * * There ha ve been no federal parental loans in the past, according to the Financial Aid director. Insurance companies have bad loan programs in the past but at higher interest rates. r T J? & $5 ,: Parents'can only borrow the difference between the students' other financial aid and the total college costs, stated Zembower. ^ ^ ££? A typical repayment plan for a parent who borrows $3,000 and pays it back over a 10-year period would denote a monthly payment of $46.58. * 4 ?&m* (T Zembower said the parental loan program has a significant P : impact on college students., g \ k. Although the financial aid changes mean much more paperwork for the Financial Aid Office at Mercyhurst, said Zembower, they "will- make the ^college much more affordable." i f

AtMSG ^ -j a Visitation Hours f:-*' . * To Be Changed ^5^?
%he Mercyhurst Student Government discussed how the visitation hours in the afternoon will be changed from 1 pm to 12 noon at the ^September 22 meeting. These hours will become effective once a memo has been dispersed to all staff involved, said Rich Lanzillo, MSG i A team of students will foe formulated to discuss the pros and cons of thefive-yearplan proposed by Dr. Garvey^ i The amount of credits needed to graduate was discussed. An earlier decision \to change graduation requirements from 120 to 128 was changed back to 120 credits by the President and the Dean this summer. The reasoning behind mis sudden decision was due to the new billing system that would have to be proposed if 128 credits were needed- to graduate, explained Student Senator, Bonnie James. , A motion was made by Mike Smith to send a letter to the Dean recommending that he agree withfivedays taken off the beginning o" iTianKSgiving vacation r and adding four days to the begin-i ning of Christmas vacation. The g motion passed l l to 7.2* IB .i The SAC report was given by Vice* President Mary Baldauf.

MtHolland jgSj
JJ » By George Garrelts I heard that Holland was "full of bicycles," but hearing about something and experiencing are never the same for me. I wanted to see that "fullness" for myself. My wife, Louise, and I decided to just leap overfall the obstacles and go. We dropped off our children at her parents' home in Minneapolis,?put;our bikes on Northwest Airlines, climbed the ramp and took off for Gatwick, England. From Gatwick we flew immediately to Amsterdam on British Caledonia, got our bikes from the luggage people, put them together, changed clothes and headed out of the airport on the bikepath (fietspad in Dutch), direction Leyden. ' r Louise and I had done some biking in Europe, mostly in France and Belgium. So we had some experience with airlines. It helps to have snap-on wheels so that you can take the front wheel off easily, turn the handle bars around to fit inside the wheel and attach them both to the bike frame with tape. We also take off the pedals ana I lower my seat. On the return flight the bikes came up on the conveyor! belt, thereby passing as our luggage, which is the ideal situation. We carried our clothes in a back pack which fit easily under the seat or into an overhead compartment All this plus the guts to behave as if this is all normal procedure is enough to get you where you" are Tjoingm" EurbperThe dominate impression I brought away from our 12 days of biking in Holland wasfone of being part of the transportation system.; Here in America v it is "catch as catch can"*«for the cyclist, but in Holland the bicyclist has been built into a system. The cyclist is not on a completely equal level with the motorists but he does figure in the construction of roads, j crossings, rsigns, Jand (believe it or not) the stop and go lights. He has a set of lights all his/her own. There she is on a bicycle in red, amber, and green.' n Sometimes the fietspads are °t easy to find, but they;are there. You have been provided for on every street, at every intersection, between every town and village and every other place to which you want to go. \ During those entire two *weeks I experienced courtesy from motorists and truckers in every city in Holland save Amsterdam. There the*crush of traffic and construction has produced more aggressive motorist behavior.

The group known as the Blueprint III Task Force was organized in May of this year at the behest of Dr. Marion Shane, President of the College. & S * 1 * The task force takes its name and heritage, from the Blueprint I and Blueprint II planning projects of the late 1960's and early 1970's. According to Dr. William Garvey, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Chairman of the Task Force, it was the first two Blueprints that transformed the Mercyhurst of 1965 into the very different Mercyhurst'of 1975. [ ] : jg When asked what the purpose of Blueprint III would be, Dr. Garvey stated: "I still believe that the statement 'the need for change is the only thing that doesn't change' is an operative statement at Mercyhurst . •? . I t ' s absolutely • necessary for the college to continuously consider significant changes if it is to continue to meet the challenges to its survival. M i J *£ "v ? -.". ) It was at the organizational meeting in May that President Shane spoke to the task force on their goals and presented them with the guidelines to be incorporated into any plans for the Mercyhurst of the future. Those goals were: 1) an optimum enrollment for Mercyhurst of 1500 FTE (Full Time Equivalency) Students. S 1" 8 2) A continuing movement and commitment to interinstitutional cooperation through the Erie Consortium of Colleges and Regionalization. +-£ *oL I 3) Preservation of the Christian heritage of the College. £*4) Development of programs which would relate to the living and career needs of students and society in general, including consideration of the market appeal of new programs. 5) Development of Mercyhurst's role in the Continuum and its commitment to life-long learning. fifcgSiri ~i i One of the important duties for the Task Force will be to formulate a purpose and a set of goals for Mercyhurst as a col legeTDfT Shane stated: *'Before BfuepHnTi. the purpose and goals of Mercyhurst were quite- clear. Since Blueprint I, the changes have come so rapidly and the college now has so many different things going that it is time to sit down and create a new sense of identity, direction and purpose. I consider this one of the main duties of the Blueprint III Task Force." I i With the start of the academic year, the members of the Task Force will be meeting weekly, according to Dr. Garvey.

You can often lose that concentration when you are biking along canals which are full of interesting things to see like windmills, boats, of all shapes and sizes, almost infinite numbers of ducks, fisherfolk, and windsurfers, or people just sitting in the sun.

Harvard Square is slightly reminiscent of that time, but it is probably more reflective of the great emphasis on the arts in Boston. Musicians carrying anything from a horn to a harp may be found on street corners, in mint of banks, and in subway stations. Mimes', comedians, and dancers also filter through the Square, opening their souls to public criticism with an empty tin cup that they hope will be till-, ed with coins. s Ja Harvard Yard looks directly at the Square as it sits on the other side of Massachusetts Avenue. As the original Harvard College, which was built in the 1600's, the Yard is entirely encompassed with wrought-iron gates and padded with cobblestone walkways. The classrooms of literature are named after classics such as Ralph Waldo Emerson. % The science building is a replica of the Polaroid Land Camera, funded and named after Mr. Land, who developed the Polaroid.

E I By Mary Jo Allen 2 Every fall term.I Mercyhurst College witnesses a small migration. It's not the geese, swallow, or the ruffled grouse,; It is Mercyhurst students trading their residence hall rooms for the open spaces. In our case it's the Sesler and Briggs apartments. 3fl| What causes this annual relocation on our campus? Most agree it is the feeling of independence, the increase of responsibility offered by* the apartments. *•••i§r& * Many students choose to live in the Sesler apartments. These are located on the western edge of the campus center. Sesler has the advantage of offering both privacy and a sense of belonging. The residents can choose tolive away from the campus activities or become actively involved. Being on campus also adds to their safety, with Mercyhjirst^ security patrolling nearby.; . Sesler residents often become like a close-knit family., With winter weather limiting their outer excursions, they learn to rely on each other. Living in Sesler adds on definite responsibilities. Sesler residents may choose to prepare their own meals, come and go as they please, and set their own personal standards. They learn Co be responsible for themselve and to show concern and* tolerance for their roommates and consideration for other residents.

Music Review

The "Pretenders" New LP
by James N. Kopchuk; v ^ .; ^ The Pretenders long-awaited Lp, 'Pretenders IT, has final' ly been released, but, has been met with a dichotomy of criticisms. * * 2* "She seems to have sung "Pretenders II" while she was half asleep...", muses Anastasia Pantsios of the Cleveland y. Plain Dealer. " "She'iis .ghrissje Hymjg^jeajier ojf the band and ungues Uonabiy one ofjtocks premiere leadingladiesTHer s seductive prowess stimulates audiences to near hysteria. ^ Criticisms stem from the Lp's lack of simulating the daring, unabashed energy of then* day-view Lp, "Pretenders". But, after starting their ll-week tour of the U.S. on August 8, in Ft. Pierce,, audience reaction to the new ten tracks was overwhelmingly positive. T ? * w PHynde,* along with band members James Honeyman Scott on guitar, Pete Frandon on bass, and Martin Chambers on drums seems to rise above criticism and just keeps moving 4. forward. While the band methodically produces a hard-driving beat, the music is balanced by Hynde's unique, somewhat tawdry, beckoning lyrics. "Such a drag to want something sometimes, one thing leads to another I know.... ", as taken from "Talk of the Town", a track that was originally released on the "Times Square" soundtrack and "Extended Play", and now has found its niche on "Pretenders II". J- X r Other bracks, ''Bad Boys Get Spanked" borrows from "Tattooed Love Boys" (Pretenders I) and a segment of the "Wait" pops up in the old Kingsmen tune "Louie Louie". | As the Pretenders wind down their tour of the U.S. they will surely be met with more criticism from the media. Tom Carson, a music critic for the ROLLING STONE, leaves us with a glimmer of optimism. "This is a brave record and a good one: The fiercely ambitious work of a woman determined, by whatever means, to make herself the greatest heroine in the history of Rock and Roll. The odds are certainly against her. r I hope she makes it.'\ £%fc$§P -*>•* > *i -' Other tracks include, "The Adultress", "Waste Not Want Not", "Message of Love", "English Roses", "Pack It Up", "Birds of Paradise", and "Jealous Dogs".

Two films for discussion, both dealing with the blacks* predicament in South Africa, will be shown Wednesday, Sept. 30, in room 200 Main beginning at 7:30. The first, "Last Grave at Dimbaza," has been called by the San Francisco Chronicle "A powerful film which details the government's systematic attempts to wjpe out black family life " This will be offset by "Generations of Resistance," a film thai portrays blacks as makers of their own history. It is said by criticst to provide "a^positive counterpoint to the grim mood of Last Grave at Dimbaza." "South Africa is the last country in the world where; blacks are not at least legally free," commented Reginald Herring, president of the Association of Black Collegians, which also sponsors these films. "The actual slave conditions of the blacks in South Africa are so bad and so unjust that it is hard to believe the poverty and slavery and injustice that does exist:" « ? "These prize-winning films show those conditions in ways you will long remember," he added.gf * i THE MERCIAD

Disparity Found In Scholarship Allotments
Recipients of the newly instituted Valedictorian/Salutatorian scholarships at Mercyhurst must participate fully in the Egan Scholars Program, according to Thomas Billingsley, director of admissions. However, SAT scores for Valedictorian/Salutatorian scholars are lower than those of the Egan scholars, stated an administration source, -; The nine Valedictorians and Salutatorians in the freshman class each receive full-tuition scholarships. Egan scholars receive $1,000 per year providing they maintain a 3.5 academic average. There are 15 freshman Egan scholars this year. » * * _ .

Colleges Facedl WUh^ Extreme Budget! Cuts
Colleges v around the country are already? struggling with declining enrollments, rising costs, and a slack in standards. Along with these problems, colleges are now faced with extreme budget cuts brought about by the Reagan Administration. The cuts in the Reagan budget affect the State funds which in turn lower the amount of spending the State allocates. The cutbacks in the IHdgerrerta lnly^iffecre^etyone but most importantly it affects the student seeking-a higher education.^ Institutions all over the country are feeling the budget * cuts. Schools are having to adjust to the sudden lack of funds, some affecting school scholarships and financial aid. A lot of schools are so hard hit by the cuts that whole departments are being dropped. At Duke University a $4,000,000 building has just been constructed for the school of Nursing. This fall, the school is accepting no new students into the program, and, as soon as the current Students graduate, the only thing left wiU be an empty building iwith an uncertain future. The cuts can be especially felt where economic problems plague the State Education budgets. Oregon is having to make drastic cuts in ± its higher education. Michigan State plans to close its r e s i d e n t i a l Science and Mathematics College, I and the University of Michigan is planning on shutting its Geography Department down completely. This September Michigan State University (MSU) is looking at a $30 million deficit according to a September 15,1981, article in the College *PreSg* Service. MSU President Cecil Mackey tried to cut many of the Departments, and lay off many tenured faculty members, while eliminating one, of the largest Nursing schools in the country. Class boycotts and countless demonstrations forced the President to adopt" a •.less severe plan which barfly covers basic expenses4 I "C'Every University President is tightening their operations in one way or another. Many colleges are having to choose drastic surgery in order to cope with the budget cuts which the State has levied on them. By making budget cuts across the board like the larger universities are being forced to do, they are cutting the quality education which has been

a standard of these state schools. £ With the loss of whole departments comes a loss of teaching jobs: In colleges like Trinity in Hartford, Connecticut, Milton in Wisconsin, Duke in North Carolina,«and Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, the colleges* are having:to relocate professors whose departments have been dropped or worse yet, let them;go. There! are alternatives to dropping a department such as merging two or three different departments into one in order to save it and the teaching jobs.; One colleges did! this by merging the^German and Russian Departments with the Oriental- and African language departments. « w * * Massachusetts and California educators expect more budget cuts next year.

Emergency Loan Fund Started *
An emergency t loan fund for students has been formed by Mercyhurst Alumni, according to Director of Student Services E. William Kennedy,^ The Carpe Diem Society has donated an estimated $2,000 to the Carpe Diem laon fund. Loans have a 90-day interest free pay' backhand students have 24-hour accessibility^© thrmonev. erfplained Kennedy. The money can be used by students in emergency situations such as plane fare should a death in the family occur and shortterm tuition shortages.' Kennedy .added that the amount of money available to students will increase as the membership of the Carpe Diem Society grows. More information can be obtained from the Student Services Office, Old Main.

Pep Band
IsiReady |
| The Mercyhurst Pep band, which is composed of weight students at this time, will be playing at thefootballand basketball games' during the 81-82 year according to Dr. Mennini, chairperson of the music department. _ "The music department is piecing together the hand to keep all those students^who have had previous experience in music a chance to practice and enjoy the Lakers", said Dr. MenninU 4 The initial idea of a pep band came from Mr. Chiarelli and Dr. Mennini. This fall 16 brass and woodwind instrumentalists enrolled and the music department felt that if the students had some people to practice with they wouldn't lose "that tremendous gift which they received". The music department is renting instruments to students who play. Interested students are asked to contact Dr. Mennini in Zurn.

Defense proves troublesome Mistakes Cost Lakers Victory
Last Saturday evening the Mercyhurst football team traveled to Pittsburgh for a game against the Duquesne Dukes. The Lakers played an exceptional game despite the fact that they lost 19-6. The game was played infrontof 2,250 fans, of which 1,000 were estimated to be Mercyhurst fans. The first quarter contained conservative play by both teams, each trying to determine the weaknesses of the other. The first quarter was a tough one for the offense as they committed two fumbles while trying to establish a running game.!However, the Duquesne offense was having problems of its own, they couldn't penetrate the Laker defense. The quarter ended with neither team getting on the scoreboard.. *. The second quarter* opened with the Dukes threatening on the Mercyhurst 11-yard line, hut on the first play of the quarter, Laker. James Sherrod pulled down a Duquesne pass and returned it 14 yards to the Mer* cyhurst 25-yard One. However,' the Laker offense again stalled and they were forced to punt. Bob Nies unloaded a 49-yard punt that sent Duquesne back deep into their own territory J % The Mercyhurst defense continued to cause the Dukes trouble and they^were again-forced to turn the ball to the Lakers. Then, as the Mercyhurst offense began to drive down the field, the officials^ decided to make their presence-felt. It seemed they] would be called for a penalty. In The first haifaioneT me tSkers were called for penalties seven times for a. total of 62 yards. These, along J with'the three fumbles committed in the first half,*made things tough for jthe defense.^ ^v % | £
