Soliciting of funds toward the seven million dollar Capital Fund Drive will begin by the middle of October, according to Mercyhurst College President, Dr^ William P. Garvey.

The student government, faculty and parents of the students will be asked: to give to the fund drive Juntil Thanksgiving. Thus, showing the college's committment to its own campaign, Garvey commented. jE The Mercyhurst Board J of Trustees and Dr. Garvey are working in conjunction with one another to rai,se approximately four million dollars within the first year of the Capital Campaign. Of the projected money to be collected immediately, almost two million dollars will be used as endowment for financial aid.

speaks a third view


"It will take more than just running for the presidency to create the structure and status of a third party," John Anderson said. i The 1980 presidential candidate believes, "a third party! is a harder political package to sell." m -k Relating his views to an audience of about 100 people in Zurn Recital Hall Tuesday night, Anderson said, "I have no quarrels with two parties. Strong political parties are a good thing." As a political activist, Anderson does not neglect the views of the other two parties. In fact, he said he is a supporter of the Mondale-Ferraro campaign in the upcoming election. However, Anderson pointed to the fact thatfneither oflthe two politicial parties are a majority. f •'?* Anderson cited ^approximately 42 percent of Americans are Democrats while 28 percent are Republicans.

JayCee induct Hurst graduates
By Debbie Hison Two Mercyhurst College alumni were?among fthe five women inducted into the Erie Jaycees last week. Stephanie Hultberg, a 1984 graduate and Anne O'Neill, a 1981 graduate, were two of the first women admitted to the all male organization. The Erie Jaycees, a service organization helping handicapped, -retarded, elderly, and disadvantaged people in the area, for the first*time in its history admitted women to its ranks. The women were admitted by a U.S. Supreme Court ruling saying to exclude them violated the Minnesota antidiscrimination laws. Because of .this descision the U.S. Jaycees voted in August to accept women members nationally. Hultberg, ^assistant public relation's director for the Erie Golden Blades was "surprised" by all the attention she got from the local media.

Joe Gredler was chosen as copy editor,;and Kathy Daley and Sarah Jporterfield will serve, as ,phpjo_ and lavout ors, respectively. Art instructor and former Mercyhurst graduate, Shelle Barron will be the staff's faculty advisor. The yearbook will be approximately 152 pages with about 32 pages of color photos.

The system of declaring certain ^classes pass or fail has come under scrutiny. A recent survey of 1600colleges across the nation reveals that many students do {not ?utilize the pass-fail grade. * g* Mercyhurst Academic Dean, Dr. David Palmer, tends to aQrpA .with r this trend. "Students don't seem to be as interested in using pass-fails. There is a trend in not requesting them," says Palmer. He continues that students use them when they are "afraid of a grade that will


ass fail m a k e


reduce their Q.P.A. Students are rather grade conscious." Palmer adds that "in the 1960's there was a great concern for pass-fails." He also felt'that the pass-fail system will be re-evaluated in -a college-wide discussion.| $ *-Bonrge- Y o s t , * c o l i e g e registrar, disagrees' with the survey. Students do exercise the pass-fail option. Many use it whilehhey're taking their upper level major courses so they can devote more time to their major studies."^ Yost

notes that it^ "does? take off some of the pressure."* Spring term usually brings the heaviest traffic through the registrar's office to declare pass-fail. Yost claims that "certain Instructors draw more pass-fails than others."

Professor "Jazzes" Meroyhurst
By Laura Ruby If there is one characteristic that is I present in all Mercyhurst instructors, it's diversity. Not only do they encompass! the knowledge of the courses they teach, but a vast variety of other subjects. One example of such ^diversity is Dr. Mark Gridley, assistant professor of psychology. jj Gridley holds a Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University in general experimental psychology with experience in diagnosing brain damage and learning disabilities. But besides his background in psychology, Gridley is also a professional jazz musician. Gridley had an early start in the music world. At age 10, he began playing the flute, at age 12, the oboe, at 14, the saxophone,, and by this time he was playing professionally. And to add to his list of in struments, he later!mastered the clarinet. * j < Gridley's jazz background is one of much color. It includes being a saxophonist-flutist with Harry "Sweets" Edison, Lou Rawls, Sammy Davis, The Jackson '„Five, The Temptations, The Pointer Sisters, Tony Bennet, and the list goes on. Hennas made many appearances in night clubs'all over the United States. Gridley's immense knowledge of jazz enabled him to write three textbooks on the subject. One of his books, entitled "Jazz Styles" : is the 1 record market. I At I the outset, jazz was slowjto win acceptance * in the jgeneral public not only because of its racial origin, but also because it suggested loose morals and general low life. Over the years jazz has changed and has$ gained wider acceptance. | Gridley considers jazz "the most rewarding t m u s i c because it uses everything. Every ounce 1of creativity you can muster.' ! With 3 jazz, he said, "Individuality is a virtue instead of a liability." He feels "rock and roll" is more 'show business' than music and' that jazz is more penetrating. The musician is a part of his music. "Jazz is tailor made to every person." f "f Gridley .began teaching at Mercyhurst this fall. Thus far, he enjoys his|job and considers the students to be "very friendly." Beginning in January, he will be teaching a course entitled, "Understanding Jazz."

By Brian Sheridan Who's the leader of the strike that's made for you and me? M-l-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E! Though it may? be shard to believe, >the employees of Disneyland, in Anaheim, California, walked off of their jobs last week. The strike was over la contract dispute between t h e * workers and management i of the famous fun park. I" *g Besides the usual health and medical benefits, the employees have a few demands they want met, before they will return to the "Electrical Parade". The union's leader and " s p o k e s r o d e n t , Mickey Mouse, listed the demands as the following: 1) Time and a half pay for working Walt Disney's birthday, 2)* lower voices in future cartoons and 3) heads that are proportional to their bodies.j Mr. Mouse also wants more" protection from the {little kids- who regularly kick, bite and spit up on the-cartoon characters^as they try to promote goodwill throughout the park. Security was tightened last year; at Disney's park in j Florida, when a renagade Smurf drove a truck loaded with AlkaSeltzers into Lake Bueno Vista. DisneyWorld had to suspend* activities for a week until the fizzing subsided. Mr.

Sheridan's World

Mouse fears a similar terroristic attack at Disneyland. On a personal note, Donald Duck won't return to work until Disney j gets the Norwegian government to lift the ban they imposed on him several years ago, because he doesn't wear any pants. The Norwegians also thought Donald was immoral because of his reluctance tofmarry Daisey Duck, whom he has been going steady with for the past forty years.

This strike, however, hasn't closed Disneyland. Disneyland's owners quickly brought in scab cartoon people to work when the regulars took to the picket lines. Most of these "animals" JJke^Rlcky Rat and Sammy Slug, are characters trying to get that big break .*&-in \the ranimated industry. • $ f!W Hopefully this strike can be settled peaceably and without governmenrintervention. This is ripe material for presidential incumbents trying to restore the traditional values of hard work to Disneyland.

Lakers finally I top Fighting Scots

By Greg Yoko


I have never, in my four years here, seen so much en-^ thusiasrri on this campus as I've seen this-footbali season. I don't know iflhe jjMercyhurst Community is finally realizing that the football program is a good program and not$some grsat horror movement or if everyone lis simply jumping on a winner's bandwagon. Whatever the case, it sure is nice to see people, banners, and f parties f commemorating each victory, especially after returning from a road game* The feat which Mercyhurst College has successfully accomplished is phenomenal. Let's see if the players and the college can reap the benefits of some nationwide recognition with a Division III national championship. At this point in time, it looks very possible. By the way, the new Mercyhurst! fight song can be Ifound on pageffourof The JMerciad . The song is to be sung to "On Wisconsin."

I've witnessed a few practices and games this year and have made§one simple observation J If the members of the team, coaches f included, would devote as m much time and energy to actually playing soccer as they do to arguing and fighting with each other, officials, and opposing players, they could just possibly have a darn good team. The talent is 4here, but the teamwork isn't.
