Students positions for Biology, Dance, Dietetics, Interior DesignFashion Merchandising, Nursing, and Secretarial Management will be voted upon by all students in the respective majors. In addition, three i. freshman representatives will be elected by their classmates. Groover i explained that although only two positions, those of Dietetics, and Interior Design-Fashion , Merchandising are contested, elections will include all open government positions.

Rhodes Scholarship Nominee Selected
By Karen Merkle Mercyhurst Senior Jeff Jones has been selected as this year's Rhodes Scholarship nominee. According to Rick Bengel, transfer andfreshmencounselor, Jones was chosen as this year's applicant in response to strong faculty support which was carried over from last year. Bengel said that Jones was a strong favorite last year, in addition to Bruce Miller and Jamie Borowicz, but because only those about to receive their bachelor's degrees can tapply, he was ineligible. But this year, Bengel said, Htle's another real strong candidate to represent Mercyhurst." I Bengel stressed that Jones is a | prime candidate, "the kind of person the Rhodes Scholarship committee is looking for." Jones is completing a double major in I accounting and history. In addition to his athletic achievements he is a two-year veteran of the Laker football team, prior to being injured this season - he is also I a regular on the Dean's List. Jones, a native of Chesterland, Ohio, is honored by the nomination, but still keeps the distinction in perspective. "It was a big honor just to get nominated, but I'm not getting my hopes up," he said, citing the fact that only 32 American students will* receive the scholarships. Uones also mentioned the amount of work that:had to be done to prepare his application, that included writing a personal statement, gathering eight faculty references, having photos taken, and getting a physical. But, Jones added, "It's about the biggest honor I could have. And the prestige* would not only go to me, but to * Mercyhurst as well." The scholarship was established in the will of Cecil. Rhodes, who provided the funds for students who exemplify certain qualities, [> According to the Rhodes Scholarship selection criteria, the students must show literary and scholastic ability, truthfulness and devotion, 'unselfishness land

Academic Honesty Policy Reviewed
* By Amy Woodworth MERCIAD Staff Reporter The eleventh Mercyhurst Student Government meeting was called to order on October 24 by President Dave Robinson. He announced that the holiday transportation service to Newark International Airport is now open for reservations. This year's Senior Dinner Dance will be held on Friday, December 9, as announced by dance chairperson Anne Gilligan. The HRM department will be serving wine and cheese from 7 to 8 p.m., and dinner at 8:30 p.m. The music and entertainment will be provided by the band Prophecy. The question of academic honesty was discussed extensively within the MSG body Sunday night. MSG feels there is a need to create a new policy stating that: if cheating occurs on a test or paper, the student'will fail the course. This policy has been tabled until the next meeting so each MSG representative can speak to the students within their major on the issue. All are encouraged to express their opinion at the October 30 MSG meeting. jThe cost of the new recreation center equipment was presented to MSG by Pat Songer. A motion was passed to accept the cost of the outdoor equipment in two phases. Phase I will include a number of tents and sleeping bags and will cost $937.81. Upon the acceptance of Phase II, the purchases of two canoes, oars, bikes, and fishing poles will be complete. The cost of Phase II is $1,739.69. This money will come from the Union Capitol expenditures, reported MSG treasurer Sheila Delaney. Lastly, a commuter council is being established on the Mercyhurst Campus. This council will inform the commuters about campus events and help to involve commuters socially. "We hope to sponsor daytime coffee breaks with hot chocolate, coffee and donuts for both residents and commuters,'' explained MSG commuter:. representative, Marie Tarasovitch. "We'd like to start working with residents and break the gap that lies between commuters and residents," she added.

He expects that by early in 1984, Jeff will be notified if he has been chosen for the next step in the scholarship-awarding process, the interview. '"Hopefully this year, if luck is with us, he will be invited for an interview," Bengel said. "It's a big honor for Jeff, a knowing the faculty and administration think so highly of him," Bengel concluded, f _ _


The Fall Mercyhurst Student Government elections will take place next Tuesday, November 2, and Wednesday, November 3. The ballot for this election is smaller than the Spring Term election, but the importance of the positions available must be stressed. The freshmen class will elect three freshman representatives next week. This race is significant because these individuals who are selected will be responsible for representing all members of the class of 1987, when issues are raised pertaining to them, and Mercyhurst students in general. Freshmen should* take the initiative to learn who is running for their representatives and whether or not they are qualified to be in student government. Six major representatives will also be chosen in the upcoming elections. The majors are as follows: Biology, Dance, Fashion Merchandising-Interior Design, Nursing, Dietetics and Secretarial Management. In these races, only students enrolled in those particular majors are eligible to vote. Every'single student in those majors should vote because questions are often raised in government which directly relate to certain majors. Voters should be aware of the right to choose and elect the candidates of their choice. It is of utmost importance to keep in mind leadership skills, motivation levels, experience, talent and dedication, when making selections. Spaces will also be provided on the ballot sheets for write-in contenders. Students should pay attention to the campaigns, ask questions of those candidates who may represent their class or major, and most important of all... vote.

Dear Editor, I would like to publicly express my dissatisfaction with the present Homecoming situation. As a Mercyhurst alumnus, I was eagerly anticipating the opportunity to return to the 'Hurst to see old acquaintances and visit the surroundings in which the best years of my life were spent. However, notification . of Homecoming events arrived on October 21, only eight days before the proceedings. Along with the notification ^ was an RSVP which was to be returned by October 21, so plans could be made accordingly.' Even with an immediate response, at current U.S. mail schedules, the earliest the RSVP would arrive back at Mercyhurst would be October 24, three days iate. w r This year,.due to unforeseen

circumstances, I will be unable to attend Homecoming proceedings, but that is not the point. The point is that plans and • announcements should be publicized sooner, so that- the alumni can plan accordingly. An important event such as Homecoming should be something that everyone$ist$nformed of well in advance so that plans can be made and schedules adjusted. The program for Homecoming 1983 seems to be a very good one and I am sure I would have enjoyed it. Hopefully something can be done so that the alumni will be k informed of J events with more than a week's notice, and Homecoming 1984 will receive a bigger and better response. Sincerely yours, Jack Bour

On the average, he plays the game about five times a night against the hard driving coach of the USA team, Bill Wheeler. "It doesn't hurt to fantasize," he said., Mercyhurst is privileged to have this hockey game, as it is the most expensive of the machines in the Student Union. Besides the hockey game, there are ten other video games plus one pinball machine. The video games include: Ms. Pac-Man, Thief, Turbo, Jungle King, Q-Bert, Star Trek, Birdie King II, -Galaga, Baseball, and Zaxxon. , Kevin Armstrong, an avid fan of Galaga enjoys playing it because, "it is fast-paced, action packed, and a challenge." He plays the game at least once a day and "has IosUinterest in all the other games." Another student, Al Passerallo said, "besides hockey, baseball is my favorite game." Pinball player Shane Brown enjoys playing the machine except, "I wish they had a better machine." He said it is a good way to waste time.

Council Hopes To Unite Commuters And Residents
Commuters and residents have their differences. For this reason, a Commuter Council has been established to bring the two student bodies together. Marie Tarasovitch, MSG commuter representative, created the council to build a bond between the commuters and residents of the college. "I want to give the commuters a feeling they belong to < the school," Tarasovitch said. "We are a part of the Mercyhurst community,'.' she added. The Commuter Council meets every week to generate ideas and activities among the commuters as well as with the residents. A' coffee break is an activity which may soon be sponsored by the council, once a month. Doughnuts and coffee would be served in the lobby of Zurn Hall. The council would also like to sponsor a dance in cooperation with MSG. A fund has not been established for the commuter council, but Tarasovitch hopes to generate a budget through the various activities sponsored by the council. Another activity Tarasovitch would like to initiate is a coffee house. Guitarist and comedians would be scheduled in the Back Porch Cafe as a means of bringing both . residents and\ commuters together under one roof. Of the 600 students who commute to Mercyhurst, about ten students make up the council. Tarasovitch said she is quite pleased because a consistent number of students have been attending the meetings. f t Senior''Jack Holland has been one of the active participants of the council. He attends the meetings because he wants to know what's going on. To further establish the council, Tarasovitch would like to elect a chairperson for the committee. She also would like to write a constitution which commuters could refer to for specific answers i to conflicting ideas. *$ ^ The commuter rep believes the lack of communication inhibits commuters from becoming more involved amongst themselves as well as with the residents. A general mailbox for commuters would be a means of informing the commuters by approaching them directly, Tarasovitch said. Sporting events against the residents is i another idea which may bring commuters closer to the campus. f A resident sleepover is yet another idea Tarasovitch would like to implement. Commuters and residents would be paired up, so that commuters would have the opportunity to experience resident life for a weekend. Tarasovitch's goal is to get more commuters involved in die council. About 30 students make up the commuter council at Behrend College.J Tarasovitch believes we can get that many students involved in the Mercyhurst Commuter Council as well. "I think we can get more," she said. "We're still sotting things out but we are really determin9 ed.' she conclud ti«l

Counselor Starts , Second Term On Campus
By Chris Chmielewski MERCI AD Staff Reporter A lot of people might not know it, but Mercyhurst has a part-time mental health counselor./ on campus. ;••Dr. Warren Hohwald arrived on campus last spring, but not very f many students know of his existence. As a result, the Freshmen Studies office is trying to make students aware of his service. Robert iPagni, Director of Freshmen Studies, said that the faculty and staff have been "informed so that they-can direct students to Dr. Hohwald. "We're still trying to discover a way to directly make the students aware of his services so that they can be utilized/' Pagni said. He explained that Dr. Hohwald is quite experienced as a college counselor and, "we hope his services will be utilized." Dr. Hohwald has worked at Ohio State University for seven years as a college counselor and likewise at Behrend State College. He has also worked in private practice for 20 years. Dr. Hohwald said that he has spent so many years working with coliege"'students because "college students have the capacity to change and grow. They are not set in their ways yet and are more receptive to, counseling." Dr. Hohwald said that he enjoys working at Mercyhurst because the students and faculty are particularly friendly. Hohwald explained that even though the counseling service is handled through the Freshmen Studies Office, the service is not limited to freshmen. Sophomores going through a "slump" and juniors and seniors who are trying to determine what to do after

To sign up for an appointment, a student can go through the Freshmen Studies Office, or simply cross off a block of time on the schedule posted outside Hohwald's office.

Tots Taught At 'Hurst DayCare Center
By Debbie Hison MERCI AD Staff Reporter The Mercyhurst Community Child Care Service is entering its second year of existence under the direction of Nancy A. Sawyer. The service provides quality child care for the Mercyhurst community which includes Mercyhurst College and Preparatory, St. Luke's, the Center for the Arts and any alumni from the area. * The program provides young children with varied stimuli which helps to enrich their total development, Sawyer said. Some of the goals include: Providing a safe and healthy environment, encouraging growth on all levels, mental, social, and emotional, promoting feelings of creativeness and constructiveness and experiencing language developments and perceptual skills. The center has three programs, each pertaining to the students specific needs. The infant program consists of children between the ages of 1 and 18 months. The toddler program is for children 18 to 30 months, and the preschool for those 2.5 to 5 years old. Each program has a limited amount of capacity. Some of the activities for the children include field trips, playing games, listening to stories, and singing songs. "People tend to think of us as a babysitting program, but we are not," said Sawyer.

New Word Processors

Equipment Updates School Curriculum
By Fran Moavero MERCIAD Human Resources Understanding the operation of a computer is becoming an essential skill in society. However, word processing is also making a mark in the business world. Mercyhurst College recently purchased a four word processors and included the course among its curriculum. Prior to this summer, the course was not available to students. While it is a new course, there are restrictions as to who can take the class. > At this time, secretarial management students are only allowed to enroll in the course. Diane Stenclik, instructor of the word processors, J believes it should be a required course for business majors, as well as those students entering the writing field. Stenclik defined a word processor as a "computer that has an application towards words.'' Jack Grazier, a journalist for the Erie Times, wrote an article in reference to word processors. He said, * 'a writer can create and plan and write and then recreate and rewrite at the keyboard, while still working on the original draft." Many students enroll in the course for many reasons. Stenclik believes two separate courses should be offered to students for their different interests. "One course should be aimed at secretaries, while another'' class should be geared toward personal or career growth," Stenclik commented. According to Business Education World Magazine, "word processing skills will help both business majors and non-majors in their educational, ^occupational, and'personal pursuits." Many secretaries are fleeing back to the classroom to learn the basic operation of the word processor. Joann Bryson, a student of the Career Institute, took the course because she is hoping to get a better job. "Word processing seems to be in great demand," she said. Another student from the Career Institute said, "we have to catch up with kids learning this in school. We have to keep jup somehow " she added.^ _ ^

1979 Men's Tesmis Team Dennis RanalU Head Coach

1980 Softball Team Shelley Monas Head Coach

By Lisa Riforgiato MERCIAD Sports Reporter As of this year, the Mercyhurst College Women's tennis, volleyball, basketball and soft ball teams have J bowed out ijof the Women's Keystone Conference. The WKC is comprised of an alliance of eight teams: Behrend, Allegheny, Grove City, Villa Maria, Westminster, Geneva, Thiel and, formerly, Mercyhurst. After four years of planning, revising and red tape, the WKC was brought into being in March of 1975. It started out as club competition, then progressed to intercollegiate competition i betweenfour private J schools: Behrend, Villa Maria, Gannon and Mercyhurst. It was a no-scholarship program, therefore, teams were on a more equal footing. In 1976, however, Gannon was taken out of the Conference because it began scholarship awards and Geneva College was added in its place. There are many reasons behind the 'Hurst's leaving. The main r reason was that there was not enough time to fit all the games in to get a bid for regional play-offs in Division II. In • the Conference, the teams were scheduled for 14 games each, and, in order for a bid in regionals, they needed between IS and 20 more, including matches against Divisional schools. This can be quite a grueling and physically demanding season, as both coaches and players found out. \ Due to this demanding schedule, the question was then asked, "Why couldn't the number of games being played in the WKC be lowered to one per team, leaving more time for Division II competition?" Caught again, because of a rule in the Conference 1982-83 bylaws, each team had to play one another twice.

^ I f a bid for regionals was desired, the coaches had two choices: either to stay in the Conference and play as they were, or to go strictly Division II. The latter of the two was chosen. Scheduling took place in the fall of last year, and everything was assumed to be fine. However, a loophole was found. Due to a misunderstanding between administration and one of Mercyhurst's coaches, the voting on a new. rule, which dropped WKC games to one apiece instead of two and could have gone into effect this academic year," was overlooked. This left the teams playing a very tough schedule in Division II when It hey could have had both Division and Conference play, and a better shot at the playoffs. In order to be considered highly competitive, a team must play tough opponents, and Mercyhurst certainly has some tough teams ahead of them. The decision to pull out of the WKC was not all one person's. It was discussed and reviewed many times by *the Women's Athletic Director and Women's coaches. It also went through school administration and the WKC Board. There is no glory or fault to the final decision. Obviously, there is no one person who has the authority to make a transition of this caliber without consulting the others involved. The outlook for Mercyhurst Women's teams is not that bad. For this year, -Mercyhurst is in Division II. According to Janet Price, Women's Athletic Director, the college will be re-entering the WKC in the fall of 1984. They will come in under a new ruling which wiD give women's teams a lighter, but still very active, load in Division II, without hurting their bid for regional playoffs. '%*%

The Miller representative handed out brochures on Philip Morris Inc., Miller's parent company, which explained their various products, which include Lowenbrau beer, Marlboro cigarettes and Seven-Up. Then each person was given a hard hat, goggles and earplugs and the tour ledger. $ .1 The Fulton Mllller plant is not a tourist sight, but an actual brewWV*WWTOaftW»WWUOrt*W*^^

ing plant. The 'HRM students were shown the actual brewing process in progress from the barley! hoppers, through the fermentation area, to the actual bottling, packaging and distribution warehouses. Each leg of the four section tour was led by a worker from each department. The tour guides explained the process, their own ^management needs, and trivia. It takes approximately 55 seconds to fill a keg, and the brewery fills 2,000 a day. A new machine can fill 200 bottles in a minute and they use enough water in a day to fill New York's needs for three days. Overall, just seeing rows and rows of beer lined up din the warehouse was an experience in itself* The tour lasted over two hours and Miller hospitably served lunch in their cafeteria - steaks.

The*? brewing plant is a •"dry" plant, with an atmosphere of safety and consumer satisfaction. Evident in every area were fire extinguishers, eye baths and showers, warnings for helmets, goggles and earplug areas, and signs stating, "Remember, the next inspection is by our customers." Wolper was pleased with the tour and said, "Miller's first class and they have the plant to prove it." j Unfortunately, since the Miller tour was so much longer than expected, the group i didn't have enough time to devote to the Taylor-Great * Western winery in Hammondsport, N.Y., located in the finger lakes region of South Central New York. They did, however, enjoy wine tasting and a demonstration of wine handling and pouring techniques by :a

Taylor* representative. Incidentally, champagne should be opened quietly, under a towel as the "pop" should never be audible. The winery visit at the Visitor Center also included a film on the Taylor tradition. The bus ride home was very pleasant, with a scenic route which took full advantage of the autumn leaves' beauty. iEveryone;seemed to,have enjoyed the full day and each other's company. Not to suggest that they were dancing in the aisles, but the group was slightly rambunctious on the way back to Erie. •. However, dinner sobered them * up quickly - a scrumptious smorgasbord in a restaurant in Olean, N.Y. This put the finishing touches on a successful field trip which expanded the knowledge of its participants.
