batlcals have spread from the campus to the business world. These extended job absences are being taken at such companies as IBM and the McDonalds Corporation, ifo According to the article, sabbaticals are provided to attract and keep workers, deal with stress and burnout on the job, broaden professional skills ore simply? provide veteran employees with an opportunity for personal growth. | But as Academic Dean, Dr. David Palmer says, "In the academic world, after a faculty member has been at an institution for seven years they are eligible for sabbatical." Palmer jadds that \ most f of these eligible faculty I are tenured with the college. Dr. Palmer*gives different reasoning for the? taking of sabbaticals. "Some go to study, others to write articles, some do research in education areas, 5 new course development or trips to enhance knowledge* in one's own discipline. Essentially sabbaticals are taken for professional growth," according to the Dean. Before a faculty member goes on a sabbatical, he or she must submit a proposal to the Academic Dean. The two work out* an arrangement Sstating 1 the specific purpose of the leave. The Dean then makes his recommendation about the faculty member's sabbatical to the college presidents J With this arrangement, f a c u l t y m e m b e r s are continued on page 3

Main offices wi ing to accommodate at noon hour
i By Brenda Lowe The offices throughout Old Main are in operation before the noon hour and they are in o p e r a t i o n a f t er 1 p.m. However, all offices close their doors between noon and 1 p.m., thereby making it difficult for students to conduct any business affairs. 1; i Personnel Director at the college, 1 Thomas Billingsley, believes-'that the offices are dormant at certain hours; however, he does not "see a need to have the offices open during the traditional lunch hour. £& ^ ?. 1 Billingsley said the students and faculty have not shown a need for extending business hours by eliminating the lunch hour. However, he did say that if the need was prevalent, most of I the offices would accommodate the entire college.

Experience didn't pay off
^Winter Weekend was cancelled once again. A weekend at home, activities off campus or a day to just get caught up with sleep or homework are plans which no longer exist for students who were anticipating the long weekend. Many 'students made arrangements^weeks ago. However.the snow came and cancelled classes. Now the cancellation of Winter Weekend must be. dealt with. The administration can not be blamed for an act of Mother Nature. However, they can* be* blamed* for notifying students and faculty four days.prior to the scheduled event. \ & i.. \. '. $ • -**. Students were notified of the calendar change on Monday February 4. The snow storm occurred on January 21. Approximately fourteen days lapsed. The administration knew the day would have,to be made up the day of the snow storm. Apparently a decision had to be made, but there was no decision to make. It was evident that a snow storm on Monday and Winter Weekend taking place on a Friday would not allow for the required class time to be met in terms of satisfying the allotted hours designated to the Monday, Wednesday and Friday classes. If a decision was made by the middle of the week, The Merciad would have been able to relay the message to the college through the-January 24?issue. This would have allowed more time for students and faculty to rethink their plans and possibly make other arrangements. «* m £ Considering that the same situaton occurred last -year, it would seem that experience would have paid off. It is highly likely the same situation will occur again next year. \ The college should continue to schedule ^Winter Weekend, but should make it clear on the calendar dispersed early fall term that the weekend will not be definite pending the weather. This may save a few plans as well as establish some concrete policy.

The Adult College Program
By Sandra L. Taylor Adult students, once considered non-traditional, are one of the fastest growing phenomenons infthe country. -Making up nearly* fourty percent of all college students, they attend classes during the day, evening and weekend time frames. In the summer months most campuses enroll more adult learners than traditional-age students, i a According to the National C e n t e r for E d u c a t i o n Statistics (NCES) more than 5 million adults are currently enrolled injdegree-credit programs. The question is constantly asked...Who are these students and why are they appearing on college campuses all over America? Basically, it's-simple. The adult student is a mature version of the traditional student. I must admit there are exceptions, since I am also considered an adult student. More importantly, a majority of the adult student population consists of women. Changes in the family structure have triggered^ttie-^return of* may women to college campuses. Since 1972 the number of women over the age of 25 enrolled in college has more than doubled. Women have changed'the way they view themselves. Throughout the evolution of society, women became the "supporters" of the world. They took care of brothers, fathers, husbands,

4th Annual Joke Contest
A few years ago, while he was sitting in his apartment to study for the Ohio Bar Exam, Pat Weschler (Mercyhurst '78) wrote to me: "Lots of the ideas come to me while I am trying to study for exams, but they are NEVER connected iftrthe subject matterbeinjpstudied." He must have si well though, because he passed his exams with flying colors. | ijfc j& | | | | f After finishing hisjstudies he didinot forget the midwinter doldrums that attack college campuses. One of the ideas that came to him while he was studying was to sponsor an award; to be administered by Campus Ministry. The award would be given out on an annual basis to the perpetrator of the most creative practical joke (or other humorous 5 falsification) originating in? the Mercyhurst Community. * ' ** f . ^? The ground * rules for the award arejmore a f matter of common sense than anything else: | ? $ 1 1. The practical joke may not be malicious. * * 2. It may not involve injury to persons or property. 3. It may not involve injury to reputation, j &*4. The perpetrator has to absolve Mercyhurst and Campus Ministry of all potential defamation liability. K 5. Type-written accounts of the creative practical jokes should be handed in to Campus Ministry by Friday, March 15,1985. 6. The perpetrator(s) and receivers) of the joke may be interviewed by a panel consisting of Father Chuck, Mr. Kennedy, Karen Donnelly, Fran Moavero and myself.

For example, many traditional students have a vague idea were Vietnam is, but an adult student might have been a soldier in Vfetnarn -ftgfftflhg to^pfotect the interest. of our country. Adults tend to have an eagerness for learning. They appreciate more whatt they have missed and do not want to miss any more life and learning. They lare probably sacrificing more time, energy and money. Older students usually have a better sense of goals. Experience points out

Violators will pay the price

By Debbie Hlson The purpose;of the Code\of Conduct is to provide an outline of acceptable and unacceptable behavior Accorr2 ding ^to^ the Mercyhurst philosophy printed in the Student Directory^ | Unfortunately, none of these unacceptable behaviors are made readily available to the students. The specific fines for these infractions are also not listed. According to E. William Kennedy, director of Student Services,"$the? only time students are fined are for any of three offenses. They include; taking library property, violating traffic rules, and possessing an animal. f Although nonej of these fines are listed,?their sum is determined by the value of the item plus the cost to process the violation. These are how some of trie f i n e s , are determined. & ^ "I don't like fines/' Kennedy said, "Because they tend to be minimal to "people who have money*andisignlficant to the people who don't have the money." The fines are established by the director of security at Mercyhurst College based Ton _fjnesleyiecU?y olnej^olleges. These infractions are changed and updated once every three or four years for better enforcement. * * One of the fines listed in the Resident's Handbook isjthe fine .for owning animals. All pets other than tropical iflsh are prohibited. If students are

found caring for a pet it will cost them $10 for the first infraction, $25 for the second and a severe penalty. -' One of the major If ines is the taking of library property illegally. This is also determined by the value of the book taken and the cost of processing. These fines can range from $25 to $30. §T A c c o r d i n g to J o a n n e Cooper, director of the library, the amount of materials stolen from the library has decreased due in part to the new electroniCrSystem installed three years ago.

Gannon headlines upcoming games
By Greg Yoko A full schedule is on tap for the men's basketball team this week as they begin heading into the final segment of the 1 season. i& i - : & The Lakers will encounter Central State, St. Francis (PA), and Gannon in this crucial test period. .{. 2M 1 For the second time in ten days, the Lakers will challenge Grover Durham and Central State. Durham, the Marauder's 6-8, 215 pound center, was a key factor in Central State's 96-82 triumph over the Lakers on January 30. He accounted for 18 points and 14 rebounds. The game is set for 8:00 at the Campus Center. W It will then be Division I St. Francis of Pennsylvania for their next contest. The Laker's have yet to beat the Red Flash in two previous match-ups. Two years ago a young Hurst team traveled to Loretto, PA, and surprised St. Francis, forcing the game into overtime before dropping a 86-82 decision. Last season, the Red Flash defeated Mercyhurst at the Erie Civic Center,89-75. *,, Altnougn the Red - Flash sports a losing record, it is very ^deceiving. 1 Among the teams j who have ifaced St. Francis are Canisuis,' Pitt, Notre Dame, Louisville, and N.C. State. Monday's game will be in Loretto. | % | Finally! the game Mercyhurst fans have? been awaiting all year - Gannon, f In the nine games the two squads have played, five have been decided by three points or less, and, another pair have gone into overtime.
