Fr. Tracy Calls For Religious Acceptance
The 60th Anniversary Academic Celebration kicked off with a discussion on one of the most controversial subjects in our society: Religion. Lecturer Fr. David Tracy, a Theologian from Bridgeport, Conn., spoke of "The Challenge of Religious Pluralism" and what it means to society in how we view other religions. Pluralism means: a
state of society in which members of diverse ethnic, racial, religious, or social groups continue to participate in and develop their traditional culture within a common civilization. f In a speech that rambled at times, Tracy said he thinks mystery is important to religion and is, perhaps more*important than logic.

The fourth MSG meeting of the year was opened by MSG President Mike Kelly. The January budget was approved and Tresurer Barb Sayers announced that we lost $1288.56 on the Winter Formal. This is good compared to other formals and they took in more than expected. The proposal to accept HSMA (Hotel Sales and Marketing Association) was approved. Vice President John Widecan announced that on Saturday of Activities Weekend there will be a Lazer Tag competition from 6:30 p.m.—9:00 p.m. From .1:00 p.m.—4:00 p.m. on Saturday there will be Team Olympics.

regards to the many myths surrounding religion today, he stressed that it "should not be taken literally, but should be taken seriously. The University of Chicago professor suggested that Theology can also be pluralistic and can work with science.L He offered that the ultimate religious or limit question, the "radical contingency found in the great religions", deliberately asks the ultimate meaning of reality.

Although he has, in the past, been threatened with being ostracized from the Vatican for his radical stance on artificial birth control, abortion, pre-marital sex, masturbation, homosexuality, dirvorce and euthanasia, his discussion did not deal with these subjects. Tracy closed by reiterating that
Christians should try to learn about and understand other religions. "(Christians) cannot master even the language of our own tradition. To even do that, we must learn from the other traditions," he said. "There must be new forms of Christianity in other cultures if there is to be global Christianity" he said.
(Continued from page 1) Palmer promised that, if there is a celebration next year, "we'll do a little better planning so that events won't conflict with one another." "We had some complaints from people who had to choose between two or three very good events," he said. "Next year, we will take steps so that that won't happen." Garvey expressed his delight with Mercy hurst's students. "The students are better than many people think they are, and I think the students are better than they think they are," he said. "I think they are much more intellectually alive than many people thought they were." Garvey added. Garvey put the reason for the celebration into perspectivcf 1 "We exist not just to give kids a job and credibility, but to educate them, and that was the whole idea behind the academic celebration."

Kolb Explores Erie's ' 'Prehistory
French is the major point of European contact with the evolution of life. From 1600 to 1700 A.D. the British and the French were the only native groups in Erie and the surrounding areas. Kolb also focused on the Indians' reaction in Fort Duquesne, the fur trade, and various disease problems. Kolb displayed approximately 15 maps to give specific detail to his subjects. He also lectured on the permanent settlement of Erie, which occurred in 1795. Kolb emphasized the importance of European contact and that this contact has put the United States where it is today. -

Dear Editor, ^^ On Jan. 31,1987, an event occured that I feel shouldn't have been missed. At the Senior Dinner Dance, Mary Beth Joseph, a Senior Social Work major, was presented with the Sister Carolyn Herrmann Service Award. During this time when everyone is proclaiming their right "not to be active", Mary Beth has exemplified how amazingly much one can do for their college and the surrounding community.?Yes, I believe many of your articles are informative, but I thinkjhat this story ranks above any article in the last edition. Ijfeel this way without regards to the other stories but because this event was the

acknowledgement of a, student giving unselfishly to her college and community. Mary Beth has "seized the opportunity" to serve and I hope you will "seize the opportunity" to include an article or possibly a personality profile on her in the future. Thank you. Respectfully, Peggy Hirsch, Senior Editor's Reply: You're right. It was an important story that we missed. There will be a story on Miss Joseph in next week's issue. We too feel she really deserved the honor. Thank you for calling this error to our attention.
Dear Editor, For weeks students heard about Mercyhurst's 60th Convocation planned for Feb. 10 and 11. It was supposed to be a time to celebrate our college's success in the worlds of academics, fine arts, sports, and other aspects in which we've excelled. I personally was looking forward to a chance to expand my knowledge of all subject areas by attending the lectures, discussions, films, etc., that would be offered during the Convocation. Others, I soon found out, were looking forward to a few days, or even a week off of school. I There were so many educational and entertaining programs open to all Mercyhurst students last week, that I find it hard to believe that one couldn't find something that interested them. And yet, many programs were poorly attended, even
Student Tells Of Missed! Opportunities
by their own majors. I found that within my own major (one of a mediocre size), only myself and another faithful major made it to most of our major's events. Why? I asked myself this question as the celebration drew to a close, and came up with this answer: the students weren't really interested in being educationally stimulated. We're college students! Shouldn't we want to learn? And, what's better is that we didn't even have to pay $546 to watch, listen, discuss, and even yell a bit with distinguished college officials. It was a terrific opportunity to. learn about" what's going on in the world today and how it affects u s. We even got to feel on the level with some of our professors who were seated in the same lecture 3 halls that we were. So where was A of Mercyhurst's population? Home or at the library. My sympathies to those at the library who really needed the time to catch up on all the homework they've been putting off, and my condolences to those who needed to go home to mommy, but my kudos gof to those who took the challenge and ventured out into the educationally elite of Mercyhurst College. Although the feculty and administrators probably think that our student population was lacking during the Convocation (which it was), rest assured there are still a few of us faithful pupils who want to and will take the chance to learn. j Sorry everyone else missed it because there was a|wealth of knowledge to be gained over the past few days. I'm just glad that I was one of the few to Carpe Diem! Loretta A. Layer
M e d i a Missed Point O f Dwyer's
Dear Editor, I am writing in response to the editorial published in "The Merciad" on February 5,1987. This article dealt with the press response to the suicide of R. Budd Dwyer. I agree with Brian Sheridan that Dwyer's suicide was a news event, as such things are classified. Dwyer was a public official who elected to kill himself in public office. I differ, however,^ in my opinion as to whether the press actually served any useful function in the way they covered the story. Was Dwyer's decision intended to make small children aware of the reality of death? Dwyer claimed he was innocent. The point he was trying to make was that he was an innocent pawn in a political web. In his "rambling" (as the press called it) statement, he made it quite clear that he believed he was set up. Most people I have spoken to are astonished when I suggest Dwyer may have been innocent. They ask why he killed himself if that was the case. These people all are unaware of the realities of politics. The feet is that Dwyer was politically ruined, even'if found innocent. In reports after his death, Dwyer was described as a very dedicated public servant..'Not only was all he had worked for destroyed, but all he believed in, too. For Dwyer, there was no tomorrow. Do not mistake me. I do not condone suicide. However, I do believe it takes a certain amount of courage to do what Dwyer did. He could have committed suicide in the privacy of his own home. He did not. And, this is the point. Dwyer was trying to make a statement. He was crying out for a review of a system that can find an innocent man guilty, and destroy him at the same time. It was this point that the press failed to emphasize. No one has subsequently questioned the system. There has been no national clamoring for a review
was diverted from the real issue. Perhaps the ^possibility of a manipulated trial was not newsworthy enough? Perhaps the press are aware of the public's "starryeyed" vision of the judiciary? Who created this illusion in the first place? Legal officerslare only human. t sr iInstead the picture of a man about to blow his head off was more sensational. I believe that in the story of R. Budd Dwyer, the press has missed the issue completely.,R. Budd Dwyer, it seems, died in vain. Yours sincerely, Dianne Franklin
of the legal process that tried Dwyer. How many people actually read his statement? How many people saw the article tucked inside the Erie Sunday Times which alleged that the judge, jury, and prosecutors were all conservative? Are only people who are involved in law aware of how detrimental this can be to a case? How many people are aware that the prosecutor in this case had been employed by two people who were also allegedly connected to the bribery? How many know that Dwyer's co-defendent received one year?

Student Government President Clarifies His Position
Dear Editor,! At times during recent weeks I have viewed the comments which my article "MSG President is a Little Disappointed" has produced with some mixed emotions. At times, I have been annoyed as is the natural reaction of someone who is being criticized but that criticism comes with the territory; in effect I am fair game. At other times my original emotion of frustration returns. Perhaps possibl/'through lack ofeloquence on my part, I did not express my point of view very well, however, if you read the article again it should come through. ' Are you correct, Mr. Editor, when you say that people have the right not to attend? Of course, you are. I do not think that this was the point of my article however. I was attempting to point out that MSG, in my opinion, is not being utilized to its fullest extent. The service being provided to you, the students, could in fact be giving you more. The point of this whole debate, therefore, is not to have you rallying around the cause by attending all these "wonderful activities which we provide." The point is, that by telling us what is wrong we could hopefully attempt to give you more for your money. Why does it matter that you give us suggestions? In the long-run, »it doesn't. You still graduate and get a job without MSG. However, as MSG is here and the ability to provide services to the Mercyhurst Community, it should be utilized to its fullest potential. Because we cannot think up services to suit everyone, it is often useful to hear other ideas. I resent the accusation that you would be doing our job for us. Any organization that you would be doing our job for usMny organization, yes, even The Merciad can always turn useful criticism into something positive. MSG is not my organizationy it is yours! In effect you help yourselves through a better MSG. I am surprised that the
Editor did not pick up on this. Yes, our posters need improvement. By pointing out these things we will hopefully)never spell anything incorrectly again. What a beautiful example of how criticism works. I welcome your^comments, Mr. Editor. I find it a pity, however, that we are using the amount of energy being negative as we would being positive. Maybe if we were being positive, we could both (MSG and The Merciad) grow together because I find it hard to believe that no room to grow positively exists. Yours Sincerely,
Letters to the Editor must be signed but the name can be withheld upon request. No unsigned letters will be published.

Hurst s Academic Celebration Preparation About The Academic Calendar Falters
This space on the editorial page wan vacant this week due to Merclad lCdltor, Brian Sheridan being font* on assignment for 4, Showca.se" to Albuquerque* New Mexico* So tbis week's editorial was written by Merciad News Editor Matthew J. Clark* Reflecting upon Mercyhurst's 60th Anniversary Academic Celebration, I 'd have to say that I have mixed emotions about the extravaganza. Being only a single person, it would he impossibleforme to judge every aspect of the celebra tlon, but from the reactions I've heard and from my personal experience, Ifeelthat, although it offered a variety of "potentially interesting'* topics, the celebration missed the boat on preparation. There were too many locationj changes for discussions. For in-; stance, I wanted to attend Stanislav Levchenko'sdiscussion "inside the KGB", but when I arrived at Zurn 114,1 was informed that the discussion had been moved to the cafeteria. When I arrived there, I found an empty room and was told that the discussion had been moved to the Little Theater. .The Little Theater is where I finally did find the discussion. I think the organizers of the celebration fell victim to the **we must please everyone syndrome. They realized that a crowd much too large foi Zurn 114 to hold was gathering br Levchenko's speech. I ask: How could such a mistake in judgment have been made? The celebration organizers should have realized that a topic about Soviet spies and Soviet government from the viewpoint of a former KGB agent would be a hot one and would attract much more than the 100 (give or take a few) seat capacity of Zurn 114. Had the proper preparations been made, the problem of having to accommodate extra people would have been avoided as well as the confusion which I and many others had to endure infindingthe lecture, j This problem was not confined to just the Levchenko speech. David Tracy's discussion on "Religious Pluralism'' was also moved to the Zurn Recital Hall from its original room.fThe'panel discussion on 1 "Erie Jewish History * was also moved from Zurn 114 to the Recital Hall, after it had already been set upforthe discussion. This inconvenienced those who had set up the room, as they had to take everything down and move it to the Recital Hall. Perhaps Zurn 114 was cursed? | Speaking of panel discussions, the one following the Levchenko j lecture, "Underside of Life in Eastern Europe/Poland and Russia" went over like a 747 losing a wing in mid flight. There was supposed to be a snlooth transition from the question and answer period to the panel discussion. With Levchenko still at his podium, moderator Richard Kubiak was in midsentence, informing the audience J (See "FALTER", page 8) By Mike Kelly, MSG President Most years about this time Mercyhurst it seems goes through some soul searching and closely examines its structure of academics, social life, etc. This year it is the turn of the academic calendar to come under I he microscope. There are two debates concerning this topic: one, this author's spelling of the word "calendar,'* which in the long run will not effect anyone's lives but which has been mentioned (at least to me) almost as much as the larger debate, was an honest mistake. The other, of far more importance, which has so far been undecided, will affect many more people. The second option is of course the proposed change in term lengths to either a semester (15 weeks) or a trimester (11 weeks) format. MSG recently held an open forum in Baldwin Hall which was well attended by 50 students. Many very important concerns were expressed to the Dean and members of faculty and I would like to thank those who took time to attend, particularly Dean Palmer, Diane Williams, Brian McHugh, and John Wolper. Many of the students on campus may well be wondering about the next step. The results of the I balloting indicate that approximately 70% of students favor the retention of the present system with most indicating that they prefer the early start option which was given. 25 % of you expressed a preference for semesters, while only 5 % said that they wanted a 3x11 week term system. The final vote tally of 270 students was disappointing and affected the Academic Policies committee who found that they could not decide on any one option because none of them had significantly strong support. This committee will meet with the president, Dr. William P. Garvey, on Feb. 18, and thereafter a proposal will be presented to the School Senate. Any student or,forthat matter, any interested party will be permitted, I am told, to attend these meetings and offer their opinions. A decision will probably be made by the Senate before the end of the month. A decision must be taken soon because you will have to know in order to plan your fal 1 term and the administration needs to know because they must produce a fall schedule. Student Government incidentally voted to retain the present system with an early start. However, the preference for semesters was defeated by a small margin. ?S 1 "Off the Record" is solely the opinion of Its writer and does not reflect the attitudes or editorial policy of this publication, its staff or Its advertisers.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1987
As Bocephus sang: "The rednecks and the preppies They*re in the discos and honkytonks. Somewhere between raising hell and amazing grace." See? Bven these polar opposite sub-societies have something in common; that is, you have to get out and get your mojo working if you' re going to stay sane in America. And what gets America's collective mojo working is rock and roll. For the "rednecks," there is Jason and the Scorchers latest release, although slipping it into your uncle's Slim Whitman record collection would definitely get you into trouble. No, the Scorcher's^GOLDEN3ALL AND CHAIN album is for angry, punkish, young rednecks. Although Warner Hodges miraculously manages to fuse heavy metal thrash and son o' dixie twang in his lead guitar work, I would hesitate to call it "country—rock." These guys ain't Firefal I of Orleans, and they ain't from L.A. They're from down home Nashville. The album goes down like a hot bowl of greenback chili and beer, flaunting that thrash/twang guitar,
WMCY Album Notes
throbbing bass, and charging drums. Jason Ringenberg's alternately sneering—howling, slightly off-key vocals-cap it off into a spontaneous, satisfying package. Good songs? For the most part. You can hearflashesof Buddy Holly ("Crashin' Down"), Creedence Clearwater Revival ("My Heart Still Stands With You"), andreven R.E.M. ("Goodfrhings Come To Those Who Wait"). In foct,"Good Things" sounds like a fusion of NEBRASKA—period Springsteen, R.E.M., and the Georgia Satellites. The cover of the Stones' classic "19th Nervous Breakdown" evokes a feeling of cruising through Memphis—way over the speed limit. "Ocean of Doubt" offers a slow, haunting change. Only the Ratt— like "Ghost Town" really falls on its face. •' * | Those of a more urban orientation may enjoy the Parachute Club's SMALL VICTORIES. This one's slick as Don Johnson's hair, but if you like to dance... Well, anyway, the album was produced by John "I heard a rumor that he was talented" Oates, and, though
it lacks the bounce of some Hall and Oates albums, it boasts some intriguing percussion and a lot of. hooks. These kids want a HIT. But don't listen too closely. The lyrics, almost always inane, are from the Duran tPuran— "Notorious" school of social commentary. In other words, no one in t| the Parachute Club is Tom Lehrer. This is not funky music—like George Clinton—but it does cut a pretty attractive pop groove, much in the way the music of Nu Shooz does. But the vocals are weak and nondescript, lacking? the smoothness of Freddie Jackson or the distinctiveness of Cameo. Among the songs, "Love is Fire" and "Love and Compassion" are the most involving. But these are not anything but danceable, hip music. Why the Parachute Club insists on being "socially relevant" I'll never know. Neither GOLDEN BALLS AND CHAIN nor SMALL VICTORIES will make you want to sitsa still .very long. But GOLDEN BALL AND CHAIN will still bed kicking long after the dancing is over.
"God And A Woman 1 Is A Credit To Both
By Bobble Gaydos From the moment the performers took their places and began the opening song, the audience was held captive in the Mercyhurst Little Theatre as the story of Sojourner Truth was told in GOD AND*A WOMAN. We^vatched as Cheryl Horton-Jong lived through over 50 years of this "self-made woman's" life. We listened as the words of poetry, song and speech resurrected the years that have long since passed into the history books. Wefeltthe sorrow and triumph of a lifetime and
knew the tremendous worth of it all. Written by Sandra Asher and directed by Paul Iddings, p O D AND A WOMAN is a complete performance. It was the minimalistic staging and set design that allowed us to really appreciate the virtual flawlessness of I he actors performances. The intricate mixture of Jim Skiffs musical arrangements and June Hines's choreography brought the stage to life and it was the talent and commitment that the actors made that created the perfect illusion. As an audience member, it was
A dramatic scene-from GOD AND A WOMAN. Photo: L. Hafenmaier
very easy to get caught up in the emotion of one of the hardest times in our nation's history; yet it was natural to laugh or feel the happiness and pride that Sojourner Truth must have felt when she won the respect and admiration of those who heard her speak. The only minor criticism I should mention is that HortonJong's performance was a bit overly emotional,in the first act. A dramatic courtroom scene, probably the turning point in Sojourner Truth's life, and certainly the turning point of the play, may have been more powerful|if Horton-Jong would have reserved some of her energies and not demanded so much from the audience so early in the evening. This however, may be attributed to "opening night jitters." All in all, GOD AND A WOMAN is a must see for anyone who enjoys the perfect combination of all the elements that make up a well done performance, a fantastic script, well-rehearsed actors, beautifully arranged songs and choreography and i he commitment to give an audience an evening that will be remembered long after the last curtain call. You still have a chance: There are performances tonight, Friday and Saturday, all beginning at 8:00 p.m. Don't miss, out!
By Ann Johnspn As! a part of thelAcademic Celebration held at Mercyhurst College last week, members of the English department conducted a literature reading. Participating faculty included Dr. Angela Elston and Dr. Gary Myers. Elston, a graduate of Kent State University, discussed her autobiographical novel on which she has been working. Beginning in 1946, in post war Germany, the novel tells of Elston's life at age six. At this time in her life, her grandfather wants her to be a shepard's apprentice but she is too young and of the wrong social class. Elston was the narrator in first person and in the person of a six year old child. _ • g The child is interested in the nature of reality of time. Her grandfather reads and quotes from the Bible continuously, and the child's responses are all shaped by the quotes she's, heard. ,,iii»J ^~ the child also wants to learn to

read the stars; she has heard their music at night "right in the middle of her chest." Elston's device of naive protagonist gives power to the truths being explored through r dramatic irony. I ' Taking the stage next was Myers, a graduate of the University of Iowa, he has been published in "The New 'Vbrker" and elsewhere. His special interests lie in Spanish poets like Gabriel Garcia. Myer's poetry serves as tribute to the heroic freedom fighters who know the world is "forever tipped on its axis" and have patience with that. In his poem, "Free Fall," Myers explores the phenomenon of death before impact as in the case of a fall from a high building. The death theme is continued in another poem, "Ode to Sleep." Death and sleep are associated by examining types of sleep. He writes,,"When the heart, kissed by echoes* h^s turned to dust.,.", which described a deep sleep. >]

tried to maneuver the microphone chord around glasses of water and punch. I think the concept of Mercyhurst *s academic celebration had good intentions but foil short of what it might have been had more preparation been given to the event. Mercyhurst can choose to look at how many attended the events and view the celebration as a success, or it can look at the mistakes it made this year and use those mistakes toward improving on future celebrations. I think an appropriate assessment of my feelings toward our academic celebration was that it offered a variety of subjects for discussion that would not otherwise be heard on campus, but its ill preparedness downgraded anything it may have ^accomplished, and I think many people who visited Mercyhurst for the first time left here with bittersweet opinions of the college.
