Annual event canceled due to lackiof (interest
j ^ ^ S S By Debbie Hison
The 22nd Annual Father - Daughter Weekend sehfor April 20 and April 21 has been cancelled according to Betsy Gilroy, chairperson of the event. £ According to Gilroy, the event had to be cancelled j[ due to? the flack J of response from the parents. |5 Gilroy, along with E. WilliamtKennedy, Director of Student Services, felt that it was best to call off the weekend. Either way the eventjwould have lost money. I jR 1 fi f S a B J B S j B S Approximately 40 responses were sent in out of the 600 that were mailed to all female full-time students' fathers. & £ Gilroy and co-chairperson Tracy Tridico waited until the last minute to cancel the jannual event. "It was a disappointment cancelling the get

Temperatures in the 60's and 70's this week prompted these students to take advantage of the warm weather. But they weren't the only ones to enjoy it. This canine (Max) also got into the spirit of spring.
After two terms of research, students to cancer sfuaies at conference
Mercyhurst Cancer Research students are scheduled to attend the Annual Eastern Colleges Science Conference held on the campus of SUNY at Fredonia on April 18 until April 20. At the conference, seniors Cindy White and Ron Verrilla will present papers on the results of their two-term cancer research experiments^ ^5 £ White's paper is "The Anticancer Influence? on a Cobalt Complex on Ehrlich Ascites Tumor" and Verrilla's paper is entitled, "The Inhibiting Effect of Cobalt Acetate and Sodium Ascorbate on the Mitotic Activity of Ascites Tumors.*" \ White explained that the purpose of their experiments was to increase the survival rate of mice with cancer. According to her, they had a 73 percent survival rate among the laboratory animals. t I White .adds that she and Verrilla worked on their experiments together because "it's easier with two people handling the mice." 2 f > She! is" disappointed that Candy Hoover won't be attending ithe conference. "She worked on the project, but since she's not here this teem, she wasn't able to go," adds White. *• £Sr. Eymard Poydock, the research director of ft he Mercyhurst Cancer Research Unit and also the faculty coordinator of the ECSC, explained that the conference isfa special conventions where undergraduate and graduate students attending colleges and universities in the eastern part of the U.S. give the results off their research. z * f It provides the opportunity for participation in the academic enterprise, exposing students to the type of exchange ]Xhat takes place*in a professional society. a| *r 1 On Friday, April 19, Dr. Mike Campbell and about twelve biology majors will drive up to Fredonia, New.York, in time to hear White and Verrilla present their results to the conference. 4* The purpose of the conference is to give students a taste of what an actual scientific meeting should be like, Sr. Eymard stated. Students will learn from other investigations, get tips on how to present a paper, and meet other students socially and academically. ?i
In past years,|the event attracted about 400 fathers and I daughters. Gilroy believes the overall cost of the weekend was a factor contributing to the decrease in responses. Also, many studentsjwanted their mothers to$attend the weekend event, ffiw .jr. "If we invited mothers! then it w o u l d n ' t be a father-daughter weekend, it would be another parents' weekend," added Gilroy. g t j \ I MfcActivities for the weekend included volleyball games and tennis matches in the Campus Center Saturday afternoon. Dinner and dancing would have followed the big event at the Shriner's Club. A special mass was going to be held for the fathers on Sunday in the Chapel, followed by brunch in Egan Dining Hall. j j| trroy'satd tfiartnefe~&re*sTni some fathers coming up. * S T ^ Gilroy hopes that next year's fatherdaughter weekend will be a success.

By Mary Loncharic and Susan Marcy | April fourteenth marked the beginning of Delta Omicron at Mercyhurst, the 111th chapter of Delta Mu Delta National Honor Society. An installation 'ceremony took place* on Sunday, April 14th in Zurn Recital Hall, and a reception followed. $ During the ceremony, 46 charter members and three honorary members were inducted into the honor society. To be recognized! as a member, students had to have completed 60 credits and earned a 3.2 academic average. The honorary members are Dr. William P. Garvey, president of Mercyhurst, J. Robert Baldwin, president of Baldwin Bros. Inc. and trustee, and Dr. A. Jean Lavin, director of the Business Department. §• *?• The honorary members were installed font heir distinguished, business and leadership abilities.*Professor A. J. Foranoce, president ? of the National Honor Society, traveled to Erie from Old Westburg, New York, to -• give an ^address Tat the ceremony. Professor Foranoce is the associate director of the New York j Institute Center for Business and Economics at the college's Metro Center in Manhattan. He has been president of Delta Mu Delta for two years and a member for thirteen years, i These past two years he has been actively involved in chapter installation. He has seen the honor society grow from 36 chapters to 117. i Applications for chapters to be installed at colleges" are made to Delta Mu Delta, but on the average two out of ten applications are approved. After thorough evaluation, Mercyhurst was accepted as a chapter college. Dr. Lavin will be the group's advisor. "Being a part of the business department, I'm really*, e x c i t e d about Delta Omicroon. Delta Mu Delta is so prestigious^ and highly recognized." t J In his address to the newly formed chapter, Professor Foranoce gave some advice to the chapter members. He instructed the students to practice interviewing skills and to get work experience in-their fields. He stressed that students should continue their education after college. Professor Foranoce said that "With the vast number of students receiving j college degrees, more than a diploma is needed to get ahead." J I Professor A. J.: Foranoce presented the charter? to Dr. Lavin, who established the Mercyhurst chapter. 1 The chapter members received pins and certificates. fThe honorary* members * received plaques. The honor society pin is a key with a delta attached. Pictured on the pin are a ship and the symbols for Delta Mu Delta, which translated means "through power, knowledge."

Transcripts indicate honors courses
By Betsy Lantz <As spring arrives at Mercyhurst, further attempts are being made to give new life to the Egan Honors Program! The purpose of the program is to provide s u p e r i o r academic students with discussion-oriented, seminartype classes. Usually one Egan course is taken per term. According to Program Direct o r Dr. L e w i s L u t t o n , "Changes are being made, because we felt there wasn't enough involvement with the Egan Honors Program." f g*. The most important change in the program is that Honors courses will now be indicated on student transcripts. "We got allot of support for this from the k Registrar's Office and the Computer Center," Dr. Lutton explained. A p i n * i s fatso being developed for all students graduating with Egan Honors. It will bear an inscription of the college name, "Carpe Diem," land "Egafr Honors Scholar." The student's name and year of graduation will be engraved on the back. I Dr. Lutton feels that students participating in the Egan Program deserve such recognition forf their efforts. He notes that four to five students will graduate with Egan Honors this year. This is an increase of 100 percent over past years and the junior class looks even better. An additional change is that Eganization|will be limited to one course per student per year. To Eganize a course, a student must develop an additional project within a nonHonors course. As the Program Director explains, Eganization is not in keeping with the goals of the program, although it is often necessary due to scheduling difficulties. -I I £ Dr. Lutton is hoping that a schedule, available prior to fall term, which lists the established Egan courses to be offered throughout the year, will enable students to overcome many of* these ? scheduling problems. | He* a l s o e n c o u r a g e s students in the program to exploit the -other options available to them when established* Honors courses do not meet their needs.! Egan scholars may develop seminar-type courses within their areas of interest by working in conjunction with interested faculty members. These courses can jthen I;be proposed to the Dean by the Honors Progam Director. Secondly, Honors students may set up a tutorial, in which five one-hour sessions are set up with a professor in order to discuss! course material in greater detail.?! "I'm looking for a lot of feedback from the students," Dr. Lutton said. "The only way we can find out what courses will go is if the students let us know themselves." $j£ I Egan Honors classes are set up within the foundation, distribution and senior core.

those areas from participating in the program. Again student ideas are encouraged. % "It should be an honor to be in the program," Dr. Lutton concludes. "We're still In the test phase. We don't know if our ideas will work or not, but we feel that the students can make them work."
Egan Honor courses will now be Indicated on transcripts by the letter H, following the course number. -
"We are also trying to develop ways to have Honors-type experiences in the majors," Dr. Lutton explained. "This is the most difficult part." According to Dr. Lutton, classes in majors such as business and HRM don't lend themselves well to seminartype courses; however, this should not prevent students in
WMCY and WSEE-TV work together to promote Pirates

returning tcrthe*airwaves of WMCY for the second consecutive year. Mercyhurst students, as 1 well 'as Erie County, will be able to hear all of the Pirates' action exclusively on WMCY. Like last year, WMCY will be the only radio station in the Erie area that will be airing the Pirate games. -

According to Faculty Advisor Stephen Curcio, "This is an §xdeTTem?*bpporflinlty nor us, because It shows the type of things we give to Erie programming that other stations cant offer." f | ! A new aspect of the Pirate broadcasts this year, however, is a trade off''deal between WMCY andtWSEB'IVSS, a local television station. | "I got a hold of WSEE sales and news ^director and we worked|out a deal where'we would advertise for them during Pirate games and, in return, they would advertise our Pirate games on their station, WMCY Program Director Rick Wendt said. Wendt looks jforward to a working relationship between the two stations. "I'm glad a TV station in the area took interest in us. I hope this will be a good start *for us to work together more in the future," he added.t i \ | ^Unfortunately, not everyone can hear the Pirate broadcast, Curcio> explained. "We are a carrier-current station with a
cable hook-up with telemedia; only the Mercyhurst community and Erie county residents receive the broadcast." f Wendt is happy that the Pirates chose WMCY again to carry the games.illt gives our DJ's a chance \.to work with paid professionals. It's good that the Pirates have faith in us to let us carry them again this year," he added. There has only been one minor setback this year with the broadcast. The games are transmitted via a phoneline from a Greenville, Pennsylvania * radio station. The Pirates, however, haven't been able to install the phone line. "Eventually,* in about five weeks," says Wendt, "we'll have a line installed to Greenville, but until then we are paying for a phone call down to Greenville." It is fa bit expensive, but Wendt thinks the cost is necessary. "It's worth it," he said, "because jour audience wants to hear the games."! WMCY will carry all one hundred and sixty-two games.

Thursday April 25 may stick out in every Mercyhurst student's mind asjthe day for the John Cafferty concert. But make room on your calendar for another important event to note. One thattcan help 185 million people.; On this day, 3,500 colleges across the country have been asked to participate in a nationwide effort to raise money fof the starving people of Africa. The idea all got started from an organization called S.A.F.E., Students Against Famine in Ethiopia. S.A.F.E. has been in existence for the past three months and operates from Dartmouth College. I . The organization is asking ten million college students to sacrifice their lunch in the cafeteria for the day.gln return, the cafeteria donates $1 for every student who opted to give a little of themself to those who are less fortunate. 1 A 100. participation from ten million college students would provide $10 million^dollars for food, ^medical supplies, vehicles to transport goods in Africa, train medical and relief personnel and to install long range food production programs, such as tree planting and backyard gardening. 1 S.A.F.E. believes focusing on one meal and one specific date brings about the idea of unity among the colleges and universities. Mercyhurst should not neglect this coalition. Dartmouth* Collegers taRiri^^tne time^Tb organize this philanthropic effort, Mercyhurst should make the effort to participate. I The money collected will be forwarded to one of many support groups aiding the&African countries.-They include: C.A.R.E, The American; Red Cross, Save the Children and Oxfam America. These organizations are reputable and are developing long and short term relief programs that are highly efficient. I S.A.F.E has developed another means of gathering funds if college cafeterias do not wish to get involved. The simple act of donating a dollar is another alternative which is only to be used If cafeterias are uncooperative or it has too much to lose financially. A meal in our cafeteria cost $2.50. Not even half of the overall cost of this meal is lost. Students on board pay for their meals, therefore they are granting the cafeteria the right to donate their dollar. What does the cafeteria have to lose? I W |S| * M '| w Before you do something for yourself, do something for another. Skip a meal to help feed millions.

nual Father-Daughter Weekend raises many questions; namely, "Isn't it time for a change?" *§ | | 4 f The event Is rather outdated. Its origins reflect a very differentsMercyhurst College. The "College on the Hill" has been a CO-ED institution for some fifteen years now. The mere title of the events alienates 50 percent of the college population, that being the males. Many males have resented this event in the past because it does not include them. k W> The Weekend also does not take into consideration "that some females are not from traditional ; nuclear f families and that there may! be no "father", per se. | | Father-Daughter Weekend also isolates another very important group-ltthat being MOTHERS. In past ]years, mothers have attended the scheduled events but have felt like a "third Wheel" because they were not formally invited. Given all these factors, that leaves a rather small amount of people with the potential of participating in this event. It's no wonder that the event was cancelled. So, isn't it time for a change? | ^ ' A few suggestions • How about I a Spring Parents Weekend ? Many colleges have two - one in the fall and one in the spring. Family ? How about a
can be extended to mean aunts, uncles, cousins, and even good friends. > Or, what about a Sibling Weekend ? This could become a new tradition here on campus, i \ Sorry to Betsy Gilroy and Tracy Tridico who worked so hard in the planning of this year's (cancelled) event. f M But, it's not too early to consider some J alternatives for next year. 1 It's time for a change!

Learning in Yankee-Land!
g After" being asked to write this article for The Merciad , I realty couldn't think of anything to write. But then I thought back to the beginning of fall term when I just started to make friends here at Mercyhurst. When you first introduce yourself to people, thetmost common question they ask you is "Where are you from?" When I answer "Myrtle Beach, South Carolina" their mouths drop open and the ususal response is "Why did you leave the beach to come to dreary Erie?" Well, after thinking about it, I came to the conclusion that I came to Mercyhurst because I wanted a change in my lite; new things and new experiences. But I wasn't prepared for some of the experiences I have had. jg First of all, I wasn't quite prepared to go out and buy a new winterized warbrobe. But after the middle of September, I found out -that cotton tops and shorts weren't going to cut it here in Erie. j& Another thing I wasn't prepared for was having to walk through snow that goes up to your derriere. Also, after sitting through my first Erie blizzard l|found myself being teased about getting lost in a snow drift. This^came about forj two? reasons, mainly because the drifts were bigger than me and because I have a white winter coat. g Well,Jsomehow I managed to make it through the very long winter (but just barely). Last but hot least, I have learned not to believe every thing that people tell you. It seems that the upperclassmen are forever trying to see what they can get the freshmen to believe. I should have remembered that lesson from high school but I didn't and thus fell for most of the practical jokes they pulled. Perhaps the nieest change that: occurred is f the new friends that I have made here. People I probably would never have met had I not come to Mercyhurst. This is the change that I have enjoyed the most. Still, I can't wait for May 24 to roll around so I can put on my sunglasses and sun on the beach until its time to pack up my bags and come back to Erie next September.
