Holzhaeusser not running for ire-election
By Karen Sampson Merciad staff editor S AC Chairperson Janet Holzhaeusser said she will not seek re-election in 1989 so she can concentrate on her studies, improve her tennis game and avoid the stress involved with the position. Next year Holzhaeusser, a sophomore sports medicine major plans to get involved in her major. "When I took the SAC job, my grade point went down a little," Holzhaeusser said. "Also with tennis, I felt that I couldn't put enough into it and I've set some goals for those two areas of my life." ^ She also said the position takes a lot of time and is stressful. "It's really hard to get things done on this campus, you have to really push,'' said Holzhaeusser. According to Holzhaeusser lack of communication between members of the college administration and the SAC caused problems. She cited finding a place to have the St Patrick's Day dance as an example. She said different administration members told her conflicting places to hold the dance which cut planning time. . According to Holzhaeusser she wanted to hold the dance in the cafeteria, Sullivan Hall, or the tennis courts. The tennis courts could not be used because ofpoor lighting and lack of electrical outlets. There was then some confusion as to which facility could be used. Holzhaeusser also said that several administration members have differingo ^^^^^^ The SAC chairperson must plan the year's activities, and a rough
itinerary of events for the school year which must be planned during the summer for the following year. Holzhaeusser described this method of planning as "kind of a hassle." "You don't know what is going to be a good activity, or what is going to go over well," she said. More communication and interaction between MSG is necessary, according to Holzhaeusser. This would help to keep policy straight and form a checks and balance system between the organizations. She also said the MSG members should support SAC activities, j "If they (MSG) were supporting us, we'd have a better turnout because it would belike they were backing our organization," Holzhaeusser said. She would like to see at least SO percent of the representatives at SAC activities and the MSG officers at the majority of events. She said the chairperson must plan events for freshman orientation, attend MSG meetings and hold weekly SAC meetings. The chairperson also must help with check cashing and must hire the committee staff and distribute $2000 in scholarship funds. Anyone interested in a position should submit a letter of intent to the SAC chairperson when positions are advertised. The staff can be any size, but there are four $500 scholarships given for SAC vice president, secretary, treasurer, and public relations person. The chairperson is given $1500. All scholarships must be reviewed by William Kennedy and SAC advisor Larry Kozlowski, and can be revoked at any time, according to Holzhaeusser. Holzhaeusser
said the money is not enough incentive to run for the position.' 'If you break it down to every week you're doing this, I don' t feel it's worth it,'' she said. • 'If you want the job because you enjoy working with other people, it's a very, good learning experience." . In the future Holzhaeusser said that the position of SAC chairperson should be well defined and all duties'outlined for the incoming SAC personnel. Supposedly, there is a SAC constitution written when the organization was formed in 1980, according to Holhaeusser. It has never been? .revised. Holzhaeusser said that she does not have a copy of the constitution and only received single paragraph job descriptions of the officer positions which were "not very in depth," according to Holzhaeusser., "The I leaving SAC officers should be of more assistance to the new SAC chairperson," she said. The current committee was unsure ofcertain policies and Holzhaeusser said the group is still learning. "There were a lot of-things that happened that we didn't find out until the end of the year, or until now,'' said Holzhaeusser. For instance, she said the SAC had some questions about the budgeting procedures and how their budget relates to the MSG budget "You can get more done when you know exactly what you are doing."

Default! on loans causes concern
By Michelle Bush Merciad staff editor Instead of ignoring their debts, Mercyhurst graduates who can't make Guaranteed! Student Loan payments should contact the bank immediately, according to Assistant Director of Financial Aid Sister Michele Leehan. * Banks will help graduates having financial difficulty when notified in advance, Leehan said, but if students don't contact them before the 180-day grace period is over, the loan is listed as defaulted. - | Defaulted loans are a growing concern to the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) and the lending institutions in the [United States. The defaults may affect future students applying for the Guaranteed Student Loans (GSL's). "It would affect the ability of future students to borrow," Leehan said, "when the default rates are high at a school." | At a school where the default high, such as a two-year Leehan said it is harder for s to get loans because; the is carefully monitored, lough Leehan didn't have act figures, she said that lurst defaults aren't increas1 Mercyhurst doesn't have a n with loans because their rate is low. Students get loans through the bank, but if they default on the loans PHEAA reimburses the bank for the loan. The Department of Education doesn't want to reimburse many of these loans,^however, because it says the banks did a bad job of attempting to collect the \ money, according to i the Chronicle of Higher Education. 4 'The ?federal government is demanding that the banks take measures to prevent defaults," Leehan said. The banks with a stake in the matter include Citibank and the Bank of America, according to the Chronicle. These banks are among the largest in the United States. Despite political pressure, Education Department officials told the Chronicle that the department doesn't want to use federal money to clear up the problem. * W The financial institutions involved said if the Education Department doesn't reimburse them for at least some of the defaulted loans, banks will be reluctant to participate in the student loan programs. Students are probably the ones hurt most by this situation. Augustus F. Hawkins, who chairs the House education committee, told the Chronicle, "Individuals throughout the student loan community have contacted us with alarm that the department's position could have an adverse affect on the very students we are trying to serve." Within the last two years, Mercyhurst has stepped up attempts to stop loan defaults. "More measures are being taken to prevent defaults," Leehan said. '"There is a concerted effort to prevent defaults, both in the^school and;with the lenders." J - "The school's obligation is to let the students know that they have a loan," Leehan said. That is done by making students sign a form in the business office, which says they know the GSL is a loan and they have to pay it back, according to Leehan. In'addition, the financial aid office gets in touch with graduating seniors, reminding them of their obligations. and! helping them to plan debt management "Our responsibility with loan default is prior to graduation," Leehan added. The maximum loan amount per year forfreshmenor sophomores in 1988 and 1989 was $2625 at an eight percent interest rate. Forjun*] iors and seniors it was increased to $4000 at the same interest rate. Before the present interest^ rate, which has been in effect for four years, the interest rates were nine and seven percent respectively. * The majority of people who See •Loan* pg3
Hammermill Library celebrates National Library Week
Hammermill Library is joining academic libraries throughout Pennsylvania and the United States in celebrating National Library Week, April 9-1S. The 1989 theme "Ask A Professional. [Ask Your Librarian" encourages people to take advantage of the professional expertise an assistance provided by librarians. Librarians on the \ Mercy hurst College campus have a variety of backgrounds and educational experiences that enable them to provide valuable services to the academic community. I "It seems appropriate that during National Library Week we reflect on the role the library plays in our-lives," said David Pinto, Library Director. "A library is fundamental to our work as students, teachers and scholars, and it is vital to our success as citizens and our joy as readers. Celebrate National Library Week, and check us out"

I ' 'Besides the good food and the scenery, our people and I think the Americans always enjoy the Irish,'' he said. "We are great conversationalists and are a very educated people." I 'We know what is going on in the outside world much more so than people in other countries,'' he said. "I think it's important that Americans travel more than they have. Only 10 percent of Americans hold passports." One way to cut costs when taking a visit to Ireland, he said, is to stay in bed and breakfast establishments. "That's what I do when I travel around Ireland,'' he said.' 'It costs around $20 a night, which includes a good Irish breakfast, as much as you can eat" The benefit was hosted by Bishop Michael J. Murphy, Mercyhurst President Dr. William P. Garvey, Dr. Gertrude A. Barber, and Mr. and Mrs. Michael A. McCormick. It began with Irish dancers, then a champagne reception was followed by the dinner.

The Lord Mayor told me that he particularly liked Erie because of its small town warmth," Garvey said. "He said he felt more at home here than in any other place.'%' The President of the LAP, Joseph F. Leary, was also at the dinner and spoke of the problems that the people of Ireland face. j. "When young I Irish men and women reach the equivalent of their junior or senior year in college, they frequently must decide what country to emigrate to rather than what job they will seek," he jsaid. "Those who stay must suffer a 20 percent unemployment rate as there are simply not enough jobs to go around, and that is where the LAP. is directing its efforts.'' Close to 50 percent of the population in Ireland is under 25 years old, and these young people are "desperate for opportunity and education," he said. The college will recruit five or six more Irish students next year, bringing the number of Irish students to 22, Garvey said. He added that 25 is the maximum number that the college could support for now. Briscoe said he hopes that a lot of Mercyhurst students will visit Ireland.

But since he wasn't violent, they decided not to cause anymore trouble and just let him go, Laidlaw said. ' 'This guy has a reputation for walking into apartments and stealing things," Erie police said. They added that a man matching the description of the intruder was recently seen loitering in the area around Mercyhurst | The intruder was described as a 25-year-old black male, standing 6 feet 1 inch, weighing about 17S pounds, Dever said. Dever said he is checking to see if this case may have some connection with the man recently arrested by Erie police for burglaries that took place at Gannon. "We want all students to be on the lookout for non-students who are in or around the campus living areas," Dever said. He added that students should alert security jif there is a stranger who does not look like a student loitering near the apartments.
MSG says 'no' to Toga Party
By Karen Sampson Merciad staff editor At the MSG meeting on April 2, President Chris Mohr announced the spring formal will not be changed to a toga party, and that the lawn damage problemfromWinter Activities Weekend had J been resolved. F. The Spring Formal will remain in the traditional format and the toga party will be reserved for the following evening.

Near the end of the IS minute meeting, Mohr said that he was to meet with Mercyhurst President Dr. William P.

When this happens, there are measures used by the bank to get some of the money backfromthe state. For federal employees, Leehan said that the state can garnish a student's income tax since all defaults are reported to the IRS.

banks. The reason is because the students will be hurt more than anyone else. When the government won't reimburse the loans, banks are more cautious about giving GSL's. Even students who qualify for a GSL then may be turned down. Despite the good sense of this argument, j the Education Department can't back down on this issue. Who is supposed to run the United States, the government or the banks? By remaining tough in this situation, the< government can force financial institutions to collect the money they should | have already collected. Operating on the f principle of making money, banks will probably find a way to collect money from defaulters whom they couldn't collectfrombefore. It isn't feasible that banks can collect all the moneyfromdefaulted loans by following ordinary procedures, but all die department wants is for the banks to make an honest effort After the banks show this has been done, the government will reimburse them. During all this discussion, however, the best and easiest solution to the problem has never come up. The students are the ones responsible for defaulting on loans, so let the students take the responsibility. The entire conflict with the Education Department versus the banks wouldn't have originated if students weren't defaulting on loans.

With MSG elections coming soon, The Merciad will be running quite a few stories about the candidates and the election process in general But one office that usually gets overlooked is SAC chairperson. * p The reason that this office is overlooked is that it seems to be such an inconsequential position. This person just gets some activities together once in a while, and is down in the SAC office during the week. This general description just scratches thet surface of the chairperson's responsibility. The chairperson is responsible for planning events forfreshmanorientation, holding weekly meetings, and reporting to MSG weekly. | In return, this person receives a $1,500 scholarship. This person is also responsible for appointing a vice chairperson, secretary, treasurer, and public relations person. | I Current SAC Chairperson Janet.Holzhaeusser said that the job descriptions for these people are not very in depth. Holzhaeusser also stated that she does not have a copy of the SAC Constitution. How can an elected official run an organization with no guidelines for handling situations? What are thef procedures for updating the constitution? | I This constitution should be available not only for the SAC chairperson, but for the students as well. They elect these people, and interested students should be able to read this document to see if they are interested in working for this organization. The appointing of the four other SAC officers is also questionable. If the SAC chairperson has the ability to appoint these people, it is obvious that the person will choose his or her friends. Larry Kozlowski, the adviser to SAC, apparendy has the rightto veto achoice. But this right to veto is suspect in itself. It is difficult for the adviser to veto when there is ostensibly one candidate, as the process to replace this person would be time-consuming. It is easy to see why there would be only one candidate for a position. In the same manner as the submission of letters of intent for MSG this year, if the positions are announced right before the choice has to be made, very few people willfindout about them. This can be justified in this case, as the lack of a constitution means that there are no guidelines to follow in the election process. How do these people even know how to elect the four officers? Theyhaveonly a word of mouth progression of procedure. Since these people are paid from student money, the students should be able to elect them. There arefiveother positions being decided at the time, so four more won't be too bad. Also, the four need job descriptions so they will know what to do. bills. i * > 1 Part of maturing and graduating The vice chairperson should be die parliamentarian, the person who from college is learning how to take makes sure meetings follow proper order and procedures.

With die new policies in effect, clearance of checks drawn on out-of-state banks is now faster. |j SAC can*t continue to operate the way it is now. An active exchange of ideas is needed to make an organization effective. This exchange is not present when the four officers are chosen for their allegiance to die SAC chairperson. I These people should be elected by the students. In addition, SAC needs adhesion to a constitution, whether it be die old one or a redrafted one. This constitution also has to be made available to students, as they elect the officers and pay their scholarships. The SAC chairperson's role has to be redefined. Right now, this role is vague at best This person is fulfilling part of MSG's check cashing function, yet is also responsible for a virtually separate and independent organization. $ ^ $ if Until SAC is better organized, the SAC chairperson should not be expected to fill MSG roles, as well

Don't listen to the critics ~ Say Farewell to the King, Hello to the sleeper hit of '89
By Robi Taylor Merciad staff movie critic Farewell To The King is most likely going to be the sleeper hit of 1989.1 am not saying that because it puts the audience to sleep, but because the reviews that it has received from newspaper critics will keep peoplefromseeing this movie. I usually do not listen to critics. Very few of them know what the public likes other than the foreign art films that they cram down our throats every time we turn around. % I was glad that I didn't listen this time. Farewell To The King is a good film to watch. It is a movie that entertains, yet makes you think about the way a war affects the lives of people that tare caught in the middle of i t . is The story takes place on the island of Borneo just before the end of World War II. It centers on a tribe of headhunters called the Comanches who live in a valley that is almost cut off from the outside
W O r l d . & a n A 4 '•-,
U .'Nick Nolte plays King Learoyd, an American sailor who lives with the tribe and eventually .becomes their king. This has to be Nolte's best role since Weeds. This movie showed that his talent is more towards the serious rather than comedy. He is good at doing funny parts but he is much! more convincing when he is doing straight roles.:. Learoyd is a deserter from the war and his main objective in life is My rating 90/100 to protect -his children from the Violence, Gore
violence of the outside. * 'I left your war. These people don't know about your war. I am their king and I don't want them to know about it, he tells a British captain. Eventually, the British army does show up and teaches the natives how to fight with guns and rockets instead of spears and rocks. This causes the Comanches to enter the war against the Japanese, ruining the lifestyle that they had for centuries. I i Director John Milius" did an excellent job with this script Although it was slow at some points, the details of the lives of the headhunters was more than enough to fill in the gaps. \ In a lot of ways most of the movie was more of a documentary than a piece of fiction. Milius showed some of the ceremonies and rituals that tribal people live with. For example, if the mother of a newborn child dies suddenly, it is the custom for the child to be killed because it is considered evil. , This is not a feel good movie. The thought of a culture being destroyed is bad enough, but the way that things work out at the end of the movie should be enough to put you in tears. .;. . I Farewell To The King is a good movie* If you are thinking about going to see a movie, ignore the crjtics and give this movie a chance. You won't be disappointed.
(Robocop) goes hunting for the creature with a flamethrower in Leviathan.
Leviathan copies Alien, lacks originality
» * * >
By Robi Taylor j Merciad staff movie critic
j The Difference I Is Worth The*Distance
According to Webster's Dictionary, Leviathan means either a sea^j monster or ^something huge or formidable. Well, I have another meaning for it — the extreme boredom connected I with a movie. That meaning is the only one that I can put with this film. There is one good thing about this movie,,that is the director can't be put in jail for stealing somebody else's ideas. If it were a crime then f 1 George Cosmatos [Rambo 2] would most likely be serving a life sentence. I Cosmatos didn't have one original thought in this movie. Everything in Leviathan was stolen from other horror films of. the last ten years. Alien, The Fly, and'Deep Star Six are the most noticeable. The plot of Leviathan is a car-
bon copy of Alien with one exception — the story takes place under 16,000 feet of water instead of in a spacecraft. But even that is not enough to add any new dimensions to this formula plot The creature is almost an exact twin to the creature used in Alien. Then again, that monster has been used in almost every space-horror film since the original came out of John Hurt's chest , 4 This creature invades the lab as a virus that is hidden in a flask of vodka taken from a sunken Soviet research ship. Some of the crew drink the vodka and develop' skin rashes and a strange blackening of the skin. Then the usual happens, a slimy little creature comes out of the chests of two of the crew people. Yes people, there is a new twist here —a woman gets infectedrightalong with a man.
Peter Weller [Robocop] and Richard Crenna [Rambo 2] star in this disaster. All the actors did an adequate job in their roles. They could have been better but the story line would not permit it Leviathan is a bomb and no star on earth could do anything to make it any better. • The problem with Leviathan is the plot It is slow, predictable, and boring. Even the best scenes looked like they camefromI a 1950's Bmovie. * I If you want to see this movie, go to the video store and rent the original. Alien was a bell of a lot better than Leviathan; and, the rental cost is cheaper than theatre admission, too.

Jordano excited about '89
By Matthew J. Clark Merciad Sports Editor
Last season, the Meicyhurst men's baseball team surprised many people, including \ head coach Joe Jordano, by winning 27 games. On paper, it looked as if the team would have been lucky to win 20 games. So this year, with a lot of offseason recruiting by Jordano and his staff, expectations were high coming
into camp.; I Now, after the team's successful spring season in Florida, those expectations are even greater. ' 'TheFlorida trip was very successful,'' Jordano says.' 'We played some very good competition and we were pleased with the results. looking forward to our northern schedule." \> With a 4-4 record in Florida against some of the better teams in the THE 1989 LAKER men's baseball team. Fromfront row left: Keith Parry, Tom Morawski, PatLiebler, Todd country, it's easy to see why Jordano would be anxious to begin the meat McTighe, KurtAltman, JeffNicholson, Jim Russ, JoelDombkowski, Doug Orr, Bill J ones, JeffCrosta, Tim Kirst, the team's schedule. of ; * George Baran, Al Rush, Steve Hall, Matt Gama, trainor Clint Huffman, Steve Williams, Mark Williams, John Jordano says that the schedule is much tougher this season. | "We've improved upon the schedule itself to insure a post-season Ritz, John Kibbie, Sean Hennessy, John Rupp, head coach Joe Jordano, assistant coach Ray Hennessy. playoff," he says. | Baseball works on a point system in the NCAA. A team is awarded three points for defeating a Div. I school, two points for Div. II orNAIA and one point for Div. Ill - therefore, Jordano says, the Lakers schedule according to that scale. ; "If we win the number of games we need to win, we'll build up enough points and respectability within the region to insure a postseason bid," he explains. J "We're playing teams now that Mercyhurst - in the past - did not play. We're playing these teams in an effort to bolster our schedule and to play the quality schedule that will get us into the playoffs.' * If the Lakers are to get into the playoffs, they'll have to do it with a team that features only one senior and only five juniors. "We have a young team," Jordano says. Indeed. On a roster of23 players, 16 are sophomores and freshmen. However, Jordano is confident the team can win despite its inexperience. \ Because the Lakers are a young team, you'd think Jordano would be thrilled, but he says he's sorry they're not even younger. i "I'm very optimistic, he says. "It's a constant cycle where I look two to three years ahead. I say to myself,'boy it's great to have those four juniors coming back next year/ but conversely, I feel badly that I won't e have them for two more seasons." * • * Inord Mercyhurst to be successful, Jordano says the team :hing, good defense and must generate some \ needs i in offense. „ To this point, despite some offensive problems, the Lakers are 5-5. "We haven't scored as many runs ai I would like, but I'm real pleased with the play of our baseball team," he says. "It's a 100 percent differencefromthis year's team to last year's team." Jordano says the team is playing well and he expects to iron out the few problems that they are having. Jordano feels that if that happens, the Lakers will be very successful this year. *• . "The weaknessrightnoW is offense," he says. "The bottom part of our order has not been generating the runs that we need to win the 21 and 3-2 ball games. The first four hitters have beenj having a . tremendous year. * '' I feel good about our defense, pitching and our top four hitters and I'm optimistic that our bottom five hitters are going to come through. "We're playing good baseball," he says. "We've got solid* pitching. Steve Hall, Bill Jones, Tom Morawski, Steve Williams, Al |Rush, and John Rupp are all pitching well." f "All the pitchers have already contributed," he says. "We like to use a lot of people early to see what we' ve got The positive aspect is the fact that all have contributed in a positive sense. I m ecstatic about thaL" I r . The Laker bench could be a soft spot this year due to lack of depth. "We don't have a lot of depth on our bench," he admits. "Our starting third baseman, Kurt Altman, tore some ligaments in a game down in Florida and he's going to be out for the mqorityoftheseason, Jordano explains. "We knock on wood everyday to make sure wedon'it get any more injuries." * *# Because of this, the Lakers have made conditioning a top priority as a means of preventing future injuries. *; , "We concentrate a lot on the physical conditioning aspect of the came in order to prevent injuries," Jordano says. If they get the right breaks and stay healthy, this year's Laker baseball squad could bring national recognition to Mercyhurst and that would be amazing for a program that was really hurting two years ago. "It's a team that I feel the college can be proud of," Jordano says.
