News Editor % This year's Homecoming will be held Friday, Oct. 3. Pat Liebel, director of alumni services, expressed her anticipation about the lineup for this year. "I think it's going to be our best Homecoming ever. There are many alumni returning for reunions, some from as far back as the class of '32." "There are a wide variety of events and something for everyone," she added. On Friday, there will be an SA C-sponsored bonfire at 8:30 p.m. behind the Ice Center on the football practice fields. For those who attended the bonfire last year, it will be held in the same location. The student activities committee is hoping to provide refreshments and food, but

A United Nations delegation, headed by the European Commissioner for Humanitarian Affairs, Emma Bonino, was arrested and detai ned forthree hours byTel aban police as they investigated government abuses near Kabul on Tuesday.

According to Pashtun customs, females are forbidden from working except in the medical field. Oirls are not allowed to attend school and all women are forced to wear the traditional burqa, an Outfit thai covers them dompletely from head to toe. Many human rights activists are appalled by' the treatment of Afghanistani women and have started a letter writing campaign to the Secretary General of the United Nations. "Gross violations of humanrightsand humanitarian conventions are taking place in this country and the international community cannot accept this," Mrs. Bonino told Reuters news service. While the U.N. searches for a solution to the dilemma, Bonino believes that no amount of humanitarian aid will bring an end to this crises. The solution, she says, lies in regional political pressure.

One set of gates will be placed neartheentrance toBaldwin Hall and the other will be located at the crossroads to the northeast of Zurn. College President Dr. William P. Garvey said that the gates are bei ng i nstalled to protect the safety of students in the campus interior. "Students shouldn't have to look over their shoulders when walking to class. Some of the cars that have driven through there move too fast, and there was always the potential for a serious accident The new gates will reduce traffic in the interior by 85 percent," he said.

According to Moore, the rooms on Egan's third floor are next on the list for repainting. All laundry rooms and the front doors of every Briggs apartment building will also be receiving a fresh coat of paint in the upcoming months. The only resident building to not be repainted this year is Baldwin, which Moore said was pai nted in its entirety just last yean "It will be painted again this summer," Moore added* • < A majority of the eight new apartment buildings on east Briggs were also repainted, Moore said. Close to 40% of them received new carpeting, he added. "We received the new buildings in fairly decen t shape," Moore said. "In fact, we ended up hiring the manager from Spiegel Realtors as the foreman of housing maintenance. He is very knowledgeable Mercyhurst over the past several months have produced dramatic effects. "It's an enormous amount of change,*' he said, "the greatest work that's been done in the 18 years that I've been here." of the many concerns of these new apartment complexes." The maintenance staff is handling this year's work orders at a steady pace, Moore added. At the beginning of the term, the number of work orders was more than 1,200, now there are less than 200 that still need to be completed, he said. Since summer ended, more than $80,000 has been spent on the recarpeting of more than 100 living facilities, he said. During the upcoming year, Moore will finalize the plans to begin next summer's extensive renovations to the Baldwin Townhouses and all of the apartments on north and south Briggs. "My office is going to take a more proactive stance on addressing the needs of the student body. If students look at the bigger picture, they'll see that*we do far more than many other colleges," he said.

Starvation in North KoreaiLeads to Murder
By James Gorman News Editor

In North Korea the people are taking desperate measures because of a severe lack of food. According to the North China Morning Post, a North Korean deserter claimed that the people have started killing others and selling theirflesh.People are going insane

with hunger and some are killing their own children, a phenomenon not uncommon in other parts of the world. In August a woman was executed for killing 18 children in the western port of Ham hung. \ jit has been estimated that over one million people have already died in the famine. The North Korean government insists that floods, droughts and crop failures are the cause of starvation. Mean-

while the government is withholding food supplies from China and the U.N. and distributing it to the military. Few citizens openly blame the government because of the Confucian ideal of absolute obedience and respect for the government Since challenging leader • Kim Jong-11 is impossible, people are seeking asylum in other countries.

beautiful voice and great!stage'presence. James Gadolfo, the King, is unfortunately not a trained singer, yet in my mind, it did not seem to affect the quality of his performance. One problem was that the teacher carried the show when the king was supposed to. The sets and costumes were beautiful, right down to the huge hoop skirts, shiny outfits and even the children's costumes. There were minor mistakes and a few inconsistencies, but I have to remember that I saw the final dress rehearsal. I think the best part of the musical was the chemistry between James and Tammy Gondalfo, who are husband and wife in both reality and the play. Their two children also played the leading children. Although James Ganfolo's performance could never truly match Yul Brenner's from the movie, the Erie Playhouse's production was wonderful. I would recommend to fans of "The King and I" and to those who have never seen it to check out this version.

Caffeinated Parasols
By Marcia K. Farrell Contributing Writer By Joe Gallagher Contributing Writer As we pull the" reins of our existence in :the confines of sweet Mercyworld, what is the collective opinion regarding campus housing situations at the beginning of the year? Unless a miracle in student attitudes has recently come about, it is probably the same as in years past. Classically (speaking of mostly the last decade), students have usually found their housing to be a considerable amount less than ideal in matching up with what they expect for the sum of money that they, or more often their parents, have dished out for it This fall, it can honestly be said that the case is no different than in years past. Around Labor Day, many students probably arrived to rooms and buildings containing damages, soil, and so on. Inexcusable? Most will say that yes, it is unnecessary and ought not be a reality. Many people of the campus population will be inclined to blame the housekeeping and mai ntenance staff for the condition of the buildings. This does come to reason when repairs often take excessively long and messes are often present in the halls of apartment buildings for extensive periods of time during the year. It seems as if it would follow that the college's maintenance and housekeeping staff probably are at fault. However, before this semi-conclusion can be made, an important analogy must be examined: the plight of the poor and their conflicts with slumlords. The rich protest* that any attempt at bettering the houses is shattered'by the tenants^as soon as itjis implemented, and the poor demand more decent and humane facilities in order to improve the standard of life. The analogy may seem a bit extreme, but it correlates with the cases of complaints between the housing department and the student tenants within the shelter of Mercyworld. Students complain when somethi ng is broken in their prepaid housing, and the housing department often claims that students are placing the buildings under excessive wear and tear, thus causing lengthier repair lists. Of course, both sides have valid points to them. Those in the middle, the maintenance and housekeeping crews, feel the blistering effects as they are blamed for the condition of buildings they are here to upkeep. The members of the housekeeping and maintenance staff cannot be individually held accountable for what is impossible for them to collectively accomplish given administrative difficulties, lack of necessary supplies and adequate time, and the dilapidated overall present situation. The existing condition of the apartment buildings is witnessed daily by anyone living on campus. Anyone who has been in particular locations or has worked any breadth of time in housekeeping or maintenance has witnessed the literal conditions that residences are often left in by student tenants. Many such people have verified that numerous standing messes of filth such as miscellaneous garbage, rotten organic material, human feces, saliva, sexualfluids,beer and other beverages, left behind to be repeatedly cleaned by the housekeeping staff. And the summer of '97 is hardly an isolated incident. Why should people who are not responsible for putting these things there regularly have to encounter them as part of their jobs — especially when they already have disproportionate!) heavy job duties which benefiI all of us kve go about daily life on such an outwardly appealing campusF Instead of being too quick to complain about things, realize that doing so may enter you into a vicious circle of blame involving not just the "authorities,*'but those under them as well. Take inspiration from feelings of disgust in order to initiate change for oneselt to do something to upgrade thy own situation and begin improving the standard of life in it. Take the first step to a road of collective change to prove your dedication and have it rub off on others. Take care of your own room, and always, keep in mind those who will truly feel the effect. Force it to be worth the cost, as much as possible. Give credit where it is due and likewise, criticism where justly due as well.

This Week: "Quit YourBitchin'ttv Amidst the falling of autumn leaves we embark on a journey through another year at Mercy hurst. Anxiously, we await the day when we too may walk across that stage like so many before and be handed the degree that wi 1 save our lives from the arrows 1 of mediocrity. With the scents of apples and cinnamon wafting through the air, it is not the beauty of a fall day in Erie that my attention is drawn to, but rather the grumblings of people who claim that they would not be here if they did not need to be. HELLO!!!!! No one NEEDS to be here at,all, so don't look so' down-trodden. This is college, not a forced institution of grammar school where the mean old spinster teacher smacks ybur hand with a ruler if you cough funny. Personally, I never quite understood the reasoning behi nd attending a place of post-secondary education without truly wanting to be there. Perhaps I sound cheeky and slightly idealistic in my belief that a college student should actually WANT to be enrolled in college. My opinion hinges upon the claim of legal adulthood at the age of 18. Usually this would mean that an adult has the decision of going on to college, working, joining the military, or becoming a world-class mooch for the rest of

his or her life. Possibly, I am thoroughly mistaken and we do not live in a culture and political system of free choice. If I am not wrong, why bother wasting time in obtaining a degree or certificate if you do not want to go through the "hassle" to begin with? And furthermore, why take a lackadaisical approach to your studiesevenifyouareseriousabout being here? I wish that someone could find an argument that even Dr. Brown would be unable to tear apart and explain to me why the growing trend among college students is to "blow ofP* their studies and take a more "liberal" approach to life. Yes, of course you will still be given the same degree. Yet, I ask you this, given the task of building a life support system that would save mil 1 ions oflives, would you want someone *who may or may not remember most of his or her college training or the person with a consistently high average working on your team? Incidentally, hiding behind the si nister reputations of several faculty members for your lack of enthusiasm for class is nothing but a poor excuse for not doing that term

paper. The Mr. Hollands and Mr. Keatings of the world do not al| ways teach from the podium at the front of the movie screen. If you ask around you might actually find that they are right in front of you. We have just begun a brand new year of school with fewer mistakes in it than those of yesteryear (so far, at least). Instead of blaming the unfinished library (which, by the way, is not the administration's fault — just look at Erie weather or the notoriety of construction companies), or the extraneousamountofworkforyour not wanting to be a part of the world of higher learning, why not simply enjoy the fact that you are pri veledged enough to be enrolled in college with the keys to knowledge on any subject you desire at your fingertips. And, if mat doesn't interest you, simply because you still cannot find one decent thing about working to attain some type oftpostsecondary education, then leave. Perhaps you will find the pursuit of happiness in a different mode of operation to be a much more fruitful endeavor.

By Shawntae Howard Merciad Writer The buck certainly doesn't stop here on campus. With the cost of living continuously increasing and college tuition jumping up on a yearly basis, one would figure that our school would find it in their hearts to cut us students a break. After * all, we are spending $ 17,000+ to come back every year to a college that now only has half a functioning library, an e-mail system that, seems to work only half of the time, and campus housing that still hasf problems to be worked out So why not pass the savings onto

the students and give our wallets a break, right? Well, apparently the school doesn't seem to think so. If you've been to the Union bookstore lately you'd see what I mcan^The prices on litems in the store are total 1 y ridiculous. Almost everything in there cost more than off campus. I mean come on, $ 15 for a CD? Do we have a I ay-a-way system for some of the clothing items in there? A nd to make it worst have any of you tried using the MAC machine down there? You lose a whole dollar every time you need cash, which for a college student really adds up after a while.

Basically what I *m getting at is this. Let's give us students a break. There is ho reason why things should cost so much more than a real store would charge for them. It's not like the school, is lacking for money since we have the largest freshmen class this year in Mercyhurst history. And it isn t fair to take advantage of students who can't go off campus to buy what they need and have to depend on the school store for minor supply purchases. This isn't the ethics that I would expect for a Catholic institute. We should be better than that And those arc my two cents.

Letter to the Editor
Editor's Note: This is a copy of a letter that was sent to the Office of Residence Life last week. 21 September 1997 Dear Mr. Moore: I am writing to express my extreme displeasure at the quality of treatment that the residents of the Mercy Apartments have received since our arrival at the beginning of the 1997-1998 academic year. The poor treatment to which we have been subject reached its pinnacle when on Friday, 19 September, our telephone connection was severed.

When they were finally vacated late in August, we were still not granted entry because it was determined that all of the Mercy Apartments were to be repainted. Upon moving into the apartments very late in August (indeed, it was in the last fleeting days of the month that I was given a key, and then only because I was literally homeless), it was immediately apparent that both the cleaning/maintenance activities and the painting had been executed in a slipshod manner.

With few notable exceptions (the Assistant Residence Directors Larry Koslowski and Shawn McMasters, and the Resident Assistants in the three Mercy Apartment buildings), those in charge of operations at this institution are sending the ever-louder message that our comfort is subordinate to their own. As I'm sure you will agree, the enduring mismanagement that sends this message must be stopped now. Thank you for giving me audience to voice these concerns. I eagerly await response. Sincerely, William J. Meyer, J»\

"Tonight's a blast, tomorrow you're homeless/'
This pity saying is the most profound tidbit of wisdom that I encountered this summer. During the month of June, I found it spray pain ted o n the side of a building on Haight Street in San Francisco. It was one of the first things you saw before crossing the street to enter Golden Gate Park. When I returned to San Francisco in August, the same wall w a s covered wi th the same graffiti, except for those six words which had been painted over. All that was left was a barely visible outlineof the black letters under the gloss of white latex that had recently been added. I guess those words gave witness to a truth that was too poignant to leave out in the open for tourists like myself to see. My friend Rich, w h o accompanied m e on m y trek out west, remarked that I "would never make it in a big city. "I'm way too generous, you see. I always have loose change to give the sidewalk urchins. Less than thirty seconds after leaving a restaurant with a doggy bag I would give it away to any wretched looking soul w h o asked m e for i t i i think that most of u s pretend w e can't see destitute people simply because we're scared of what they represent T h e homeless in our country are physical embodiments of the possibility of no t "making it" in a society that is structured in such a way that a percentage of people will always b e underemployed o r without a h o m e and j o b altogether. Whereas the traditional liberal answer homelessness has been calls for increased government spending for social programs, the conservative response advocates tax breaks for the well-to-do which will allegedly encourage people to donate money to their favorite charity. Each of these approaches is too oversi mplified, and in the end dangerous. Both of them advocate detachment from actual poor people, and thus ignorance of the realities of their day-to-day lives. Besides, charitable organizations aren't very popular these days with some even experiencing direct physical attacks. O ne radical group called "Food Not Bombs" hands out free meals to people o n the streets. During the past couple of years members of this group have been repeatedly harassed, beaten and dragged off to jail by police while peacefully demonstrating and feeding the homeless. T h e cops literally have t o knock plates of food out of the people's arms before slapping o n the handcuffs. In a way, it's like the civil ri ghts marches of the 1960s all over again. This time, however, people are fighting for the fundamental human rights of food, drinking water and shelter. As for myself, I don't know what the best answers are to these problems. But Dm sure of one thing. If becoming involved in one's favorite charity involves coming u p against widespread apathy, public disfavor and police brutality, then only a few brave souls will dare. Besides, we'll never find workable solutions unless we take the time to actually talk to the people w h o are suffering. Otherwise, if we think w e know what's "best" for them, w e may only be telling ourselves exactly what is most comfortable for us to hear. \ BtSH/»U/NWEWOu/ARD©

Fryling Returns to Hurst as Sexual Harassment Officer
By Chris Wloch Editor-in-Chief v The 1997-*98 academic year has seen more than a dozen additions to the Mercy h u rst faculty. I ncluded among this list of new instructors is Tina Fryling, assistant professor of criminal justice. In addition to teaching introductory level classes on criminal justice and upper level seminars on ethics and crime, Fryli ng was hired last spring as the new sexual harassment officer. Fryling graduated from Mercyhurst in 1992 with a B.A. in criminal justice and minors in philosophy and pre-law. She went to law school at the University of Dayton and passed the bar exam in 1995 on her first try. Before receiving her J.D., Fryling returned to the Mercyhurst during the winter of 1993 to take classes in the criminal justice graduate program. She successfully completed the requirements for her master's degree in the summer* of 1997. Originally from the Erie area, Fryling returned to her hometown in 1996. She worked as a clerk in Judge Fred Anthony's office. Last year, Fryling began a private practice with a local law firm. Her repeated encounterstwith individuals who had suffered from domestic violence underscored the significance of this social problem for Fryling, who hopes to incorporate lier experience as an attorney into the classroom, t Fryling said that it was good to£J return to Mercyhurst as a professor. "I think that* this school is often underrated, and not just the cri mi nal j ustice program," she said. "When I was here as an undergraduate I was exposed to a great deal of 1 i terature I had never read before. I'm also amazed by the credentials of the faculty here." Ml It's also nice that I already knew a lot of the faculty here," said Fryling, who is now colleagues with many of the teachers whom she had in class. One of these professors, Dr. Frank Hagan, said that Fryling was an outstanding student at both the undergraduate^and graduate levels. Hagan also said that he is excited that his former student is now a colleague. <c We're really thrilled to have Tina as part of the department," he said. "She adds a different profile as a young woman who has exper- . nseitfthe area of judicial ethicsli I've already gotten a lot of good feedback from the students about her." "She relates to the students very well and serves as a positive role model w ho's easy to identi fy with," he added. "Students can see her success and picture their own ca1 reers in four or five years:' Last year, a brochure outlining the college's policy on sexual harassment was created by members of the faculty and administration. However, Fryling said that no one

protocol was established for -the handling of such cases. During the year, Fryling plans to draft a proposal outlining the procedure for handling sexual* harassment at Mercyhurst The document will point out avenues of redress for victims and clearly articulate the rights of the accused, she said. The issue of sexual harassment is a touchy subject According to Fryling, it involves repeated unwanted advances that make one markedly uncomfortable. Fryling said that she hopes her efforts can serve to educate the cam pus so that the instances of sexual harassment are reduced through education. It's important that we begin to try and catch these types of situations before they happen, she said. Since that's not always possible, Fryling added that at best we should become aware of instances of sexual harassment at the beginning, not three months after it's started happening, "f Presently, most cases of sexual harassment are referred to the affirmative action office headed by Gathy Andersen, associate dean of the McAuley division. At least tendifferent ad vocate s for the school' s policy are listed on the brochure. Although these are people to whom one can turn for assistance in this matter, as the sexual harassment officer, Fryling ismlumately the personf* who fwill direct people through the process. Fryling's office is located in Preston 115, She can be reached at ext 2352.

Art Gallery Exhibits Works of Namesake
By Richard Costelloe Merciad Writer The current' exhibit in the Cummings Gallery, located in the D'Angelo Center for Performing Arts, is an important retrospective showcasing the artistic works of Sister Angelica Cummings. On Friday, Oct 3, theexhibit will open with a reception at 7 p.m. ? As one of the founding sisters of Mercyhurst College, Cummings' contributions were numerous, including the establishment of the Art Department Cummings founded the department in 1926 and served as director until retiring in 1973. *;< This exhibit demonstrates not only the great artistic talent which Cummings possessed, but also the wide range of influences which played a vital role in her art over her long career. Academic Dean Dr. Joseph Gower said that the exhibit displays but one side of Cummings' body of work. "There are many more of her pieces that should be shown. "We should have a second part to this exhibit," he said, "because of Sister Angelica's significant contributions to the history of the college." * m • Gary Cardot, current director of the gallery and assistant professor of art, described Cummings as a pioneer. "Aside from her great contributions as a founding sister of the college and as an artist, Cummings represents an individual who managed to make great sacrifices in order to do what she felt was her most important task: to teach. " | In 1983, Cummings was recognized by the William Penn Society at Gannon University for her dedication to the profession as well as for her great talent as an artist. The exhibit, which will be on display until Oct 11, is tided "A Memorial Tribute." The various influences upon the pieces displayed are evident of a wide range of interests. In some pieces Cummings focuses on a strictly representational portrayal of such subjects as the Irish countryside, cities in Italy, and several local sites. Some of the other works display her explorations into the process of painting, representative of the expressionist and modernist traditions. This interest in more abstract approaches to art, as a break from the classical traditions, demonstrates her versatility as an artist Gal 1 ery hours are Tuesday through Sunday 2 p.m. until{5 p.m. and Thursday evening from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

M e n ' s Soccer T e a m (Unable^to K e e p Six G a m e W i n n i n g Streak] Alive
By Stephen Nolan:; Me re iad Sports Writer The men's soccer team ended its six game winning streak over the weekend with a 1-0 loss against Lewis University on Saturday. However, the Lakers bounced back with a good win over Wheeling Jesuit College on Wednesday, beating them 7-1. The Men now have a 7-3 record. The Lewis defeat was hard to swallow for the Lakers who had put on a solid performance. The Lakers squandered many opportunities up front and the goal came after some questionable defending. 'The Lewis game was a tough game to lose because we played very well. We played well defensively, in the midfield and we were creative up front We just lacked a bit of composure in front of goal. Lewis got more confident as the game went on when they saw we couldn't finish. Then they got a fast break, went down the left and a guy^ strikes the ball from 20 yards, sticks it in the top corner with 20 minutes to go. We still had chances after that, we could have put the ball in the back of the net. said Head Coach John Melody. The loss of Freshman Allen O'Brien may be the reason the Lakers lacked the sharpness in front of goal. O'Brien was given a red card at the Northern Kentucky and was ineligible for the Lewis game. "Alley was definitely a loss. A gai nst Northern Kentucky he got himself sent off and we got out of the woods down there with a 1-0 victory, but his sending off definitely cost us a gai nst * Lewis" Melody said. Although Melody was happy with the Lakers, performance against Lewis, "They never really looked like they were winning, despite all their chances. They were lacking something not only in front of goal, but throughout the pitch. The only goal came after a ball, which seemed to be going out for a goal kick, was headed back across the box and was sent home from a great finish." The Lakers had a chance to redeem themselves against Wheeling Jesuit on Wednesday, and they did just that After Glenn Francis

scored'the first goal the Lakers never looked in trouble, even after Wheeling Jesuit scored the equalizer. O'Brien scored just]before the break to give the Lakers a 2-1 lead at half time. The second half marked the end of Wheeling Jesuit. O'Brien got his second, sophomore Barry Allen added two more and substitute Jon 'Skirt' Rees got another two. Rees' second goal was without a doubt the goal of the game. His 35 yard shot chipped the keeper and went in off the woodwork for the old bul ge in the onion box. "We didn't play very well in the first half, we played very undisciplined. Still winning 2-1 at* half time we came out in the second half and played much, much better and it really wasn't a contest after that Wheeling Jesuit I expected to be a lot stronger, having said that we played well in the second half and we scored some good goals." said Melody. "It was a game of two halves. They must have been as sick as a parrot. We were over the moon that we won. The back four played well the second half. It was a good

St John Fishe r looked to capitalize on the first score of the day with a field goal attempt, but the Lakers were quick.to block the kick as Byron Curry recovered the ball on the Hurst 20. From there, the Hurst was fired up, completing passes -to Tim Brediger for 11, Byron Curry for 16, and Brian Hamlin for eight yards. ST. John Fisher ^finally stopped the drive as Eric Wicks got the green light to punt for the fourth time in the first half. Both Mercyhurst and St John Fisher would get the ball back before the end of the half, but neither team were able to capitalize. At the start of the third quarter the Laker defense was fired up and they held its opponents for a threeand-out three different times for a total of -2 yards. The offense was on cruise control moving the ball down field for a field goal attempt and,finally,74 yards for a Touchdown by. Justin Gibson at the 2:23 mark. When Eric Wicks missed the point after, it ended his

streak at 27, a record that dates back to November 4, 1995. The defense then looked to contribute on the next drive as Jason Maier picked of an interception in St John Fisher territory. The Hurst breezed into the end zone via a Matt Kissel pass to Joe Liotta for a quick 23 yard strike followed by a good two point conversion, putting the Hurst on top 14-0. k I The teams continued to trade on and off drives until St. John Fisher blocked a punt and then ran it in for a quick touchdown. At this point both team defenses looked to shut out the other as the St. John Fisher defense pushed back the Laker offense on the. next,three drives for a total of -9 yards. The Hurst's defense was also up to the challenge, protecting the lead until the final buzzer went off giving the Hurst its second win of the season. After the game coach Kimball said, "We have to start playing more consistent football, although

we played well enough to win." Through its four games Mercyhurst has 5 fumbles and 261 yards in penalties. Through the first four games, Justin Gibson leads the rushing attack with 62 rushes for 243 yards and three touchdowns.
