Curre ntly, st udents who are written up go to the Judiciary Board if they feel they are innocent.

The Board is made up of the SGA executive board, and the vice-presi dents of each class. Thus, violations go from administration, to students, and then back to administration on appeal. The level above the Dean of Students is the Conduct Committee, made of both students and administrators. Collins said she would like to institute a chain of appeal where there are both administrators and students on each level. The remainder of the committee's work, according to Collins, will be wording. They will re-word the areas which are redundant, such as the duties of officers, and work on areas which are vague, such as Article VI which says that there will be parlementarians, but puts forth no duties for them.

he added. In response to a question from the audience regarding the need for nuclear weapons as a defense against atta cks from other countries - most especially the Soviet Union - Gumbleton replied "If we would begin to make an effort into disarmament we would realize that the Soviet Union wants it as badly as we do. Leonoid Brehnez, . Prime Minister of the Soviet Union, admitted it in his summit talks," said Gumbleton. Gumbleton expressed concern over the change in attitude of the · American people regarding the use of nuclear weapons. "A forgotten Hiroshima can hurt our world. Whoever forgets the past is doomed to repeat and that is the situation we find ourselves in, in our present world."

Trial is stage for plowshares - BY TAMRA DiMARI NO Ra in and demons tra tors singing hymns marked the beginning of the Plowshares Eigh t trial, being held recently in Montgomer y County Court. The Plowshares Eight , including peace activists Dan and Phil Berrigan, and six others, were arrested last September after breaking into the King of Prussia General Electric Plant and damaging two warhead cones and pouring blood on blueprints and tools. The break-in "was, of course, a symbolic protest,'; · an area newspaper said recently, and this trial is . their (the Plowshares Eight) stage. "There are three levels 'to this drama,'' the newspaper said, the first being legal, "and tbe trial will probably be confined to that focus, much as defendants would like to enlarge it to broad moral issues." Montgomery County Judge Samuel W. Salus II made his point during pre-trial proceedings that he was "not interested in philoso- phy," and that the Plowshares Eight was there to be tried for the Sept. 9 break-in. He was referring to the philosophy that took up most of the morning pre-trial proceedings on Feb . 23. The second level to the "drama," according to the newspaper, "is that moral plane-

Editorial Student Government; peers or police? Our elected student leaders, the Student Government Assodation, have at long last read the SGA Constitution and realized that it is in dire need of revision. A committee has been formed to pursue that end. When SGA comes out with its proposal, the new revisions must pass a two-thirds majority of the student body who cares to vote. It is at this time that every voting student should ask him or herself this question, "Do I want my elected student leaders to have authority over my personal conduct?" If your answer is an emphatic NO, then there are two Articles of the current Constitution which might merit your attention. Article II puts forth the general duties of SGA . It is stated one duty "will be to promote the highest standards of honor in all matters of personal conduct." The personal conduct of the Cabrini student is t_he business of the Cabrini student, not the student Government Association.

-

Theresa Collins, SGA president, explained that this article means that the SGA wants to encourage individuals to participate in college activities. If this is what the article means, then the committee would be well advised to make it say that. As it stands now, the article is a gross misrepresentation of the role ef SGA. That body does have a concern for the students, but it has no right whatsoever to be judge of what is honorable in one's personal conduct. Another aspect of the current constitution which defies common sense and is a contradition of purpose is the Judiciary Board. As defined by Article III, section 2b, "The purpose of the Judiciary Board is to handle all students violations of non-academic concern. Appeals may be taken to the Dean of Students, and to the Student Conduct Committee ." The committee must seriously evaluate the credibility of this chain of appeal. Consider this: Under the current system, if a stud _e~t is written up by resident assistant, he must go before the Judiciary Board which is made up of students. If he is not satisfied then he goes to the 'oean of Students. The case goes from administration to students back to administration. The next appeal is to the Student Conduct Committee, which is made up of students and administrators. The result of this is that certain students are given the power to be authorities over other students. This is a grave fault. SGA members are peers of every other student in the college. They are elected by their peers to a position ol leadership. They are not, and must not become, authority figures in a disciplinary capacity. . If the SGA is to have any disciplinary function whatsoever, 1t should be a:s an advocate of the student. For instance, if a student were accused of committing an infraction against the residency rules, and therefore was written up, he should appeal his case through the heirarchy of the residency staff. He would begin with his dorm's R.A. and work his way through the chain, ultimately ending up in front of the Dean of Students, if need be. The student should go to SGA if he feels he is not getting fair treatment in the proper channels. It should · be the job of SGA to make sure the student is being treated fairly, and none of his rights are being violated. SGA should be the watchdog of the administration, not a tool of it. Similarly, if a student is accused of a traffic or food theft violations, he would pursue his case through the proper channels for appeal, and the SGA would not become involved unless the student asked them to become involved on his behalf. To give the SGA disciplinary authority in these matters, however, is absolutely wrong. Along these- li~es, students should realize that in the current administration the SGA president is also a member of the residency staff. While this has not caused a problem 'to date, and it may very well not cause one at all, the potential for a problem is there. If the committee to revise the constitution does not change candidacy requirements, then students should keep the. other committments of candidates for office in mind while voting. · There are other matters which the committee will discuss for revision. The .J:ime of -elections, and the vote counting procedure will be studied and possibly revised. Some duties of officers will be rewritten for the sake of clarity. These changes make sense and we'll go along with whatever the committee recommends, since these issues are in line with SGA's role as leaders. In the current statement of duties, and the Judiciary Board policy, however, the current Constitution allows some students to transcend the role of leadership. It raises some students to authority positions above their own peers. One must question the whole purpose of Student Government if it allows this. When the revised edition of the SGA Constitution comes to the student body for a vote, it should be unconditionally rejected if the holder of any position is given the power to transcend leadership and become an authority. · Student Government is of and for the students, it must never be placed above them. . ·.~ 1·1 , . , •,, .. , . • ~ •.

Loquitur reporter Detsy Lynch asks, "What do you think about the Berrigan issue?"

What do you think? Dave Milburn, junior I don't think what they did was right. You can't fight violence wi~h violence.

Terri McGovern, senior General Electric has more than one blueprint. Rationally, I don't think it really solved anything.

Olivia Pettengill, senior It is apparent that the Plowshares Eight firmly believed that they did the best thing in upholding moral rights of citizens who do not believe in the promotion of war, or weapons. However, our society has laws to protect the civil rights of its people. The Plowshares Eight violated these laws and thus should be dealt with accordingly.

Joanne DiFelice, s.enior There's a right way and a wrong way to handle a situation and I think this way was definitely wrong. These people stood for their beliefs and I give them credit for that, but I feel they could have dealt with the situation in a more constructive and less destructiv e manner.

Sister Bernadette, campus ministry It's such a controversial issue , it's hard to comment on it. I respect anyone who follows their cpnsdence.

But if Cabrini students are politically unaware, and I think they are, it is also due to the fact that there never seems to be any in-class discussion of current events Here is a prime example.

Letters Vandals on campus

Dear Editor: I would like to comment on the vandalism that almost destroyed the mural painted by Eileen Slat~ tery, during the weekend of2-21-81. It is hard to imagine that anyone from the campus community could be so destructive towards something that took so much energy, time and talent to create. The question that is going through my mind is "Who did it and how could they get away with it without being seen"? It is scarey to think that people with such destructive tendencies are loose around us. I think the time has come for all of us to be more aware of the people we see lurking on our property. If it was outsiders who defaced the mural, then they don't belong here and our job as concerned students is to see that they don't destroy again . ' · ' MARY 'C. GOLDNER

B.A. department considers new proposals BY ROSEMARY LYNCH The business administration department at Cabrini wants to strengthen the college's requirements for a B.S. degree . Currently to receive a degree in business at Cabrini , 39 required credits in Business Administration are necessary. With the new proposal the amount of credits needed for a degree will be raised to 57. If the academic council approves the new requirements, they will be instituted in the fall of 1981. They will apply to the current freshman class, all incoming classes, all transfers, and continuing education students admitted in September, 1981. Students will be asked to state their selection of a business administrati on major before _ijieend of their first year . They will be ad:mitted to the business administration department at the beginning of their junior year, provided they

have a minimum 2.5 grade point average in at least six business courses. Edward Christ, assistant professor in business administration, feels, "The new requirements give students a real opportunity to do a lot of things if their base studies are decided in freshman year." Mr . Christ, with Dr. Joseph Romano, vice-president for Academic Affiars, have set ·up a sample schedule for students of business administration beginning with their freshman year. Mr . Christ commented, "Our goal is to mold a program that has a business progression from the first to the fourth year." There. will be no change in the 46-49 credits that make up the general education requirements. Students can still take nine or ten courses as free electives; however , they will be urged to use these electives to expand their

business skills. Christ stated, "Computer Science courses will be encouraged as electives to give the student a feel for the highly computerized business world." One of the areas that will be concentrated on is accounting. New courses in intermediate, cost, and administrative accounting will give students background in all aspects of accounting. Mr. John Remley, accounting instructor, stated, "The new courses will prepare the business major better for the working world. With the stronger math background, which unfortunately most people lack, our students will be one step ahead." Present sophomores, juniors, and seniors are expected to meet

the requirements

set forth in the

1980-81 Cabrini Catalog for a busi-

ness degree. However, the business department plans to place them in as many new courses as possible to better prepare them for graduation. Joe Kravitz, a junior business major, said, "I'm glad to see the change occur but I'm caught in the transition. I think our business instructors are doing a great job in trying to establish a sound program." Freshman Brian Jensen feels, "Since business is new at Cabrini I'm glad they are trying to improve. Debi Lynch , freshman, added, "With higher standards of learning I'll learn a great deal more. As a freshman I'll have enough time

to meet the requirements.'' Junior, Frank Sirch thinks the changes have been needed for a long time. He stated, "The new program will give Cabrini a better reputation in the business - world and will help business majors face problems in their careers with the necessary basic knowledge." A program for business minors has also been set up requiring 21 credits. Any student with a misunderstanding as to whether they will meet the requirements should get in touch with Mr. Christ. The new program expects to expand a student's business skills and liberal arts backgound in an extensive way. The success of this program will mean success in each student's individual business ventures.

Art Dep. installs two new programs BY DIANA McSWEENEY The board of trustees of Cabrini College unanimously approved the addition of two new majors , studio art and arts administration, to the Fine Arts program. Mrs. Adeline Bethany, chairperson of the fine arts department, recently expressed her delight with the board ;s decision . "This was completely my baby, which began very simply as a discussion over lunch with Dr. Sicoli, who formerly taught music . When you get an idea like this you have to move on it." In addition to this discussion Bethany cited an article in the New York Times which effectively summarized the need for these sort of programs. They were developed ... in response to what is called an increasing demand for skilled leadership of institutions that present the arts to the public .'' The basic nucleus for these programs has been present for quite some time . "The idea was temporarily shelved when Sister Salesia, former head of the fine arts department, was re-assigned due to ill health," said Bethany. "Since this has been my first year as chairperson we've more or less had to play it by ear ." The studio arts major would in-

corporate painting, drawing, and design. The emphasis would be on applied studio skills in different mediums . In painting for instance, that would mean oils, acrylics and water colors . There would be required courses in basic design, print making and art history as well as related electives. The arts ad'ministration major is inter-disciplinary, combining performing and visual arts, business administration and English. "The purpose of arts administration," said Bethany , "is to provide for those students who have a genuine interest in the arts and to add to those courses an administrative component that will prepare students for careers in managerial positions in organizations devoted to the arts." Bethany had contacted the University of Wisconsin, which is one of the leaders in this field, and working with 'them and the Association of Arts Administration Educators developed a viable program for Cabrini. There will be internships offered in both majors. The University Museum of the University of Pennsylvania has already agreed to accept an intern, and Bethany is working on the possibility of an internship with the Philadelphia Orchestra Association.

Survey results released

BY DENISE TERIFAY The results of a recent SGA survey were discussed at the food committee meeting held on February 17. Concerning breakfast, students requested more bagels and said that they liked the cakes and donuts. One problem with lunch is that students have classes on Monday and Friday from 11:10 to 1:45 and don't have much opportunity to eat. A solution being discussed is lengthening the lunch on Mondays and Fridays and cutting it on other days. Another complaint is coming from student teachers who claim that their lunches are redundant. The problem is that there is a number of people on the list who never come to pick up their lunch. The

solution is to have the students come a l_ittle earlier, give them a choice of what they want for lunch and make it while they wait. It is important to note that some official notification is necessary for student teachers, internships, etc., so that a student's name will be placed on the lfst for a lunch. There are forms available for anyone who needs one. The doors to the cafeteria cannot be opened earlier because of budget, but it is possible to change the dinner time to make it earlier. Ifs up to the school. Finally, Sister Sharon Morano, dean of students, suggested that parties be kept to Friday nights so that the maintenance people can come in to wax the floor and clean up after the party.

BY MARY GOLDNER Kappa Sigma Omego, Cabrini's service organization, held interviews and selections last month on new membership. A committee was set up within the organizatio .n for recruiting, interviewing and tallying prospective applicants. The system used to select applicants consisted of scoring them in the following categories: personality, appearance, response to questions, experience and the reason why they want to be on Kappa. Questions ranged from locations of specific offices and departments to situation questions. Terri Hundermark, vice-president of Kappa, said that there was no set format of selection . The committee followed procedures used last year. The selection committee headed by Hundermark, included Terri Ganley, Secretary; Gar Wietecha,

treasurer; Maryann Ribick, past president; Connie Aiello, senior; Marge Rodrique, junior, and Carter Craigie, moderator of the group. The committee met for three days of interviewing. The accepted applicants were those receiving the highest scores. "Carter Craigie was present for one day of voting, but his scores were not used in the final tallying, said Hundermark. Twenty-five new members were chosen: fifteen freshmen, five juniors and five sophomores. "I think the committee was trying to handle things the best way possible. It was fair, but I was a little surprised Kappa members were not notified of those selected. I had no idea, I just voted and handed the ballot in, " said Connie Aiello, senior. When asked if there was -any controversy surrounding the selection process and those chosen,

Hundermark responded, "No, except for the fact that one person was upset because Carter urged her on to apply and she did not make it. The same problem occurred last year." · Hundermark continued, "As far as I know there are no problems . We have decided not to compromise our decision because people will lose respect for us and the organization." Kappa has grown from thirt y members, to forty, to compensate increasing enrollment at Cabrini. "I only had the opportunity to sit in on one interviewing session due to other commitments and at this time I had no knowledge of who was chosen ," said Craigie. Hundermark concluded that there were some problems in the balloting due to people not meeting their responsibilities about showing up to interview.

Aid 1n choosing a career BY MEGSLOOK You're a Junior who has studied for three years in a prospective major but now you can't decide on a job. Perhaps, you don't have any particular job in mind. If this is the case you are not unlike many of your peers but now all that can change with a little help from Arlene Kesselman. Kesselman feels that many students are unaware of the facilities available to them. As a result she has offered to interview all juniors and try to reveal their options. "The interviews are to help students through the research of career goals and to inte.rpret their interest tests as they pertain to the student's future plans," Kesselman said. "An assessment of their occupational interest is necessary." Kesselman expects to interview approximately 85 percent of the juniors before the end of spring sem_ester. Various library resources · can aid a student in realizing job possibilities within his major that may not have occurred to him otherwise. The library in the Rudy Kooyman Counseling Center is full of audio-visual equipment which explains every facet of a particular career.

Cabrini loves the soaps BY KATHLEEN BRUST Have you ever heard this ... "GH, it's time for GH !" When you hear that cry don't stand in anyone's way , you could find yourself in imminent danger. For those who don't know, GH is "General Hospital, " a popular ABC soap opera. "It 's 12:30, I have to go." "Do you have a class?" "Oh, no! I have to see who destroyed Delia ' s Crystal Palace ." Del\a is another character from an ABC soap opera "Ryan's Hope ." Or have you ever overheard this conversation in the ' lounge, cafeteria or one of your classes? "Did Devon jump off the ledge?" "No, Betsy and Wally talked her back in." "Ellen wants to have her put in the hospital to cure her alcoholism , but Devon doesn't want to leave Bonnie." "To make matters worse for Ellen, Mark saw Paul and Ellen talking in the hospital and now Mark is jecalous." Of course this conversation sounds as if these people were known intimately by the speakers. Well, they are, but only as characters in an afternoon soap opera . If you have heard conversations like this before you might have thought they were talking about real people. There is a strange phenomenom which takes place every afternoon. There is an exodus by housewives, college students, anyone who has access to the soaps to television sets every afternoon. The big question is why? Why do you watch soap operas? Why do you get so caught up in them? In the book "Television and

·Human Behavior" by George Comstock, Steven Chaffee, Nathan Katzman, Maxwell Mccombs and Donald Roberts there is an explanation for why soap operas are so popular. The book says that "Early radio research discovered that oqe motive for listening to soap operas was a desire to learn how to solve problems and how to behave in difficult situations." The book goes on to say that more recent research finds that the original findings concerning radio probably applies to the television soap opera as well, despite the fact that it is a different medium. Soap operas have changed greatly since their advent to television. They have really changed though, over the past few years. They are dealing with more controversial topics than ever before, and topics that are common to everyday life. There have been several studies done on the conten t of daytime soap operas. Dr. Ramsdell spent more than 600 hours watching eight soap operas by a single network. This study took place during 1971-72.This total number of hours is not out of line with the viewing habits of the typical soap fan. Ramsdell's findings were that illegitimacy is common with soap families. Abortion does occur but it is always surrounded by controversy. Divorce is common and death is open and realistic . Some couples live together before marriage. Senior citizens are part of family sturcture. World and national problems are beginning to be considered , but not to any great extent as of yet. Juvenile delin-

quency is an essential ingredient of action, and social drinking is all a part of life. · Four main strands have been identified with soap operas. They are criminal and undesirable activity such as blackmail, murder, rape and illegal drug traffic. Social problems such as business difficulties, drugs, alcoholism and illegitimate children. Medical developments include mental . illness, pregnancy and physical disabilities. The area of romantic and marital affairs is probably the largest of the findings among soap operas. This includes such things as marriages in trouble, divorces and annulments, marriage infidelities, new romances and impending marriages. Most people watch the soaps for purely entertainment value. But there can be no denying that you can become caught up in their story lines. Rosemarie Heiss , Junior, watches the CBS soap opera "The Guiding Light" whenever she can. Heiss says that she realizes that they are trash but she watches it anyway. "Although I feel sympathy for the characters sometimes," Heiss says, "I really don't identify with them . 1 don't live for the soap operas but I know that there are some people who do ." Lisa Fitzgerald , Junior, says that the stories do not really reflect the real world. "These people are fooling around with their ex-husband's present wife's exhusband and everyone remains friends. Fitzgerald said , "That boggles my mind !"

Campus ministry sponsors christian Stephens show BY DEBBIE JABLONSKI A peaceful, joyful atmosphere was felt in the Mansion lobby when the Campus Minis t ry Association sponsored a Christian concert performed by ''Christian Stephens. " Group members, Robert Stephen Miller and Michael Christian Shaw, are graduates of Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA. The group got started while they were praying for the people around them who needed help and guidance from God. During their senior year, after praying, they began to write songs. "We could never sing before , but after writing 35 songs we entered into a Gospel contest and won," said Shaw , "this is how we really got started." "We sing to spread what we believe," said Miller. "We are commissioned by God to spread the Gospel by song ." Most of their music dealt with the need for Jesus in our lives and His relationship with us . Michael and Robert believe that their songs are "direct reflections of their daily talks with the Lord Jesus Christ" and that they "have been inspired directly by Him." The music performed was mellow however at times did seem a little loud. The upbeat tempo and lively attitude taken by the performers allowed the audience to relate to the meaning behind each song. "Their unique style brings the message of Christ to a level which

anyone could understand ," said Maria Gentile, junior. The concert was sponsored as a pre-Lenten celebration . Donna Poley, treasurer and co-ordinator of the event, said "This event was something that we, the Cabrini community and friends, could enjoy . This concert was one definite way to show our faith is alive and real." · A reflection attitude taken by the group allowed the audience to reflect on their songs and the meaning of what role God plays in their liv~s. one specific theme of the Lenten season. "This was one of the best ways for a christian to renew his faith and for a non-christian to accept the Lord ," said Gentile. "Christian Stephens" does not just play to college audiences . They perform at prisons, nursing homes, and churches. When playing at a prison , the most joyful moment for these two young men is to see someone who has never accepted Christ final admit to himself that he needs Jesus. "Our love for the Lord permeates all that we do and bas filled us with the desires to share our faith and glorify his name," states the group. The mood of the audience seemed to set the hopes of a Lenten program. These hopes are to have people reflect on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and how that, this most glorious event, affects one's life.

'Mostly Opera Quartet' brings music to life BY MARYANN RIB ICK

Music is the universal la nguage, or so many people often say. The recent concert of the Mostly Opera Qµartet at Cabrini proved this true. Opera selections performed by the group transcended their native languages. Through the narration of Dr. Carl Suppa, artistic director for the group, even those in attendance who were unfamiliar with the knowledge of the French and Italian languages understood the meaning of the selections. Dr. Suppa told the story and the vocalists

brought it to life. Baritone Alan Wagner swelled the Mansion with "The Impossible Dream" from "The Man from LaMancha." Feelings of romance captured the hearts of the audience when soprallo, Linda Pellegrini and tenor Walter Rinaldi performed "Love Me Tonight" from "The Vagabond King" and the playfulness of"Carmen" resounded when mezzosopran .o sang "Habanera." The accompaniment of Suppa on Cabrini's Steinway accented the fine performance of the vocalists .

Duets fr om Offerbach's "Contes D' Hoffman," Rossini's "II Barbiere Di Siviglia," Puccini's "Tosca" and "La Boheme," and Bellini's "Norma" demonstrated the beauty of interacting voices. The trio from Verdi's "Aida" portrayed a musical scene of magnificence. Solos from such operas as Puccini's "Madama Butterfly," and Lioncavello's "Mattinata" spotlighted the beautiful voices of the individual singers . The afternoon was truly one of fine opera

Summer theater scheduled BY PAM CLARK

Cabrini's theater director, Dan Perna, has some interesting plans for summer theater, including summer concerts , dance festivals, and 'An Evening Of Arts.' However , the most interesting of Perna ' s ideas are his plans to set up a "theatre-irHhe-round" in the Grace Hall courtyard. This project is scheduled to start at the end of May and will include three to four programs. "It will consist of drama , dance, whatever," Perna said. Perna also stated that the project was hard to get off the ground and that he is behind on it. When asked who was funding the

project , Perna said, "Anything in theater always pays for itself . I a1ways have an admission charge, such as for dance companies . Besides , there isn ' t too much money involved . Some artists are donating their time for these programs ." Perna pointed out that he isn't solely responsible for the summer theater . . "I work with other people ," he said. " Dr . Frank Saul is an advisor . Dr . Saul , Jan Buzbee and I work very hard in bringing quality entertainment to Cabrini College ." Other events scheduled for this summer include a number of sum-

mer concerts, a dance festival consisting of three io four regional ballet companies, and ' An Even ing of Arts ,' which will feature drama , voice, and piano . "A combination of arts ," as Perna put it. A Visual and Performing Ar ts camp is also in the works . Jt will be a summer camp program for the arts for children. Perna belie ves this will be successful, becau se " People want their children occupied ." When speaking of the diversified summer program, Perna said , " I think every college should utili ze what they have. It's good for the college and the community to work together ."

Nick Lowe highlights 'Rockpile' album BY JOYCE PATITUCCI

Most musicians, especially in rock music today, see the opportunity of a solo career as a true indication of success, creativity, and an abundance of talent. But when they are asked to produce an album for someone, especially of superstar status, they know that they have reached the epitome of their careers. It was for these reasons that I was both shocked and disappointed to hear that Nick Lowe took up with the likes of Dave Edmunds, Billy Bremmer, and Terry Williams to form Rockpile. But after a couple spins on the turntable, their debut album "Seconds of Pleasure" left me feeling a bit foolish. The reason I chose to focus on Nick "Cruel to be Kind" Lowe,

Elvis Costello's brilliant producer, is because the album almost entirely exudes him. It is difficult to label the album as far as style is concerned . The music is geared toward a fifties flavor of rock and roll, seasoned with the basics ' of today's newwave music. Lowe and Edmunds do the majority of the singing , and Lowe more than competently handles the guitar work . One of the strongest cuts from the album is "Oh, What a Thrill," a very fiftyish song on which Edmunds sounds quite a bit like the late Bill Haley. "If Sugar Were As Sweet As You" is cut from the same mold, but it is one of the few group projects, and probably the fastest song on the album. "Play That Fast Thing" is also

one of the better songs, and features the piano playing of Bremmer instead of the guitar . " Teacher, Teacher,'' the current single, is so much Nick Lowe that it belongs on his last album , "Labor of Lust." Nonetheless, it is a catchy, tight song featuring Lowe's unpretentious vocals and basic guitar chords, and lends to the high quality of the album. The lyrical content of the songs on "Seconds of Pleasure" are neither thought-provoking or trite , but the music is good and the quality consistent. It has a very subtle way of growing on you, another Nick Lowe talent, and while it is not an overwhelming LP, it is certainly one of the year's best and worth adding to your collection .

Taxpayers: beware of the ides of April BY OLIVIA PETTENGILL

Do you realize th'at we are already in the third month of the year? And you all know what month follows the current one. Of course, April!

Freshman's grandfather

Senator Joseph R. McCarthy is a name many people recognize from history courses. He was a man who was the center of attention concerning the uproar of Communism in the 1950s. His name is especially familiar to freshman, Karen Angeli. Karen's grandfather , William Hannon Spire, a former •·adio, television director and producer, was accused of McCarthyism and was eventually blacklisted. Blacklisting is an employer's privately circulated list of workers who are to be refused employemnt because they are reputed to hold 1 opinions or engage in actions contrary to the employer's interest. Like many others accused, Spire was blacklisted because of those he associated with. A good friend of his in particular, who was also accused, was writer Dashiel Hammett. Hammett was one of the main characters depicted in the movie "Julia." In 1950,McCarthyism burst upon the country and soon poisoned political discourse, disrupted parts of the civil service and impaired public confidence in the executive branch of the government. He charged that the State Department was emploving 57 Communists .

There was an mvesugat10n filed and it was found that all charges concerning Communism were false . Not only were people in the Stale Department watched by the Committee, Hollywood was also checked upon . They had a list of people and they checked every studio, going through the list of every single person on the payroll in every single department. After being blacklisted, Spire had a difficult time getting his scripts published. It seems that Spire had begun his career in 1929 producing and directing a radio show. By 1940, he became the chief of writers for CBS. Even though he was blacklisted for a time, he did eventually win an award in 1962 from the Writer 's Guild for best script for the television series , "The Untouchables. " Although Spire was Karen ' s grandfather, her mother's father , she never met him. He divorced her grandmother, and after that he married June Havouc, the actress and sister of Gypsy Rose Lee, in 1948.

"He never knew we were alive. He didn't keep in touch with the family," Karen said firmly . She looked away and then returned her gaze. "I really have no feelings towards him ."

Mr . and Mrs. Kanaras flew to Greece for the explicit purpose of finding a child who would make them happy.

Nine ·students selected to 'Who's Who' BY THERESA COLLINS Nine seniors were selected as members for Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities. Those selected were: Maurene Burns, Connie Aiello, Tanya Nelson, Kathy Brust, Kathy Daly, Mary C. Goldner, Detsy Lynch, Olivia Pettengill, and Maryann Ribick. These students were chosen for their scholarship ability; participation and leadership in academic and extra-curricular activities; citizenship and service to Cabrini and the community; and finally for their potential for future achievement. These qualifications

are determined by the National Who's Who Office. Both faculty and students can nominate seniors they deem eligible for this honor. Any student who receives at least one nomination will be considered eligible for the election. Once nominated, students are asked to complete a one-page Curriculum Vitae which inlcudes student's academic honors and scholarships, services to the community and College, work experience, and future plans. The applications are then compiled into packets and a ballot sheet is attached for all full-time

faculty and administrators who have been at Cabrini for more than three years and seniors holding major offices in clubs and organizations to vote on. The results are tabulated by a percentage system and approximately 10% of the senior class (8-10 students) is selected. According to Jo Harris Brenner, Assistant to the Academic Dean, this is on target with the Who's Who range of students. She also noted that these students excel in all the major qualifications and not just one or two areas. Connie Aiello achieved many academic honors which include:

Phi Alpha Theta, Dean's List for 7 1/2 semesters, Lambda Iota Tau, the Society for Collegiate Journalists, and was a Bruchmann Scholar. Connie was an active participant in the Theater, Kappa Sigma Omega, Student Government, The English/Communication and History Club, and the Chorale Ensemble. She also served as a reporter and editor of the Arts and Leisure section of the Loquitur. As for her future endeavors she plans to work in the field of communications and hopefully receive her Masters degree and become a published author. Presently she is employed as an · intern at WCAU T.V. and Radio as a desk clerk assistant. MORE!

BY MONICA WOODS Cabrini's Intramurals Program is off to a very good start. According to Chris Collins, who is in charge of the program, both soccer and volleyball are really intense. "Everyone really wants to play, especially in volleyball," Collins said. "Some teams are even practicing on their own, as well as playing a game once a week. It's really good to see people getting involved ." The volleyball teams play every Wednesday evening. Each of the six teams has two team leaders, a male and a female. The team leaders, who were not picked for any particular reason, are there to inform their team of any changes in the :;:chedule, when they should meet, etc. The team leaders are as follows : Team 1: Sulamon Allyn and Debbie Jablonski; Team-2: Jeff Brun and Peggy Heffernan; Team 3: Saiful Bhuiyan and Terry Hundermark; Team 4: Brian Jensen and Terri Giudice; Team 5: Steve Brown and Regina O'Leary; Team 6: John Derham and Gail Downie. Volleyball playoffs will begin Wednesday, April 8. The two top teams will play each other in one game, which will be longer than the games presently being played. So far, Team 1 is undefeated. Most of those playing in the volleyball intramurals seem to enjoy it. "It's a lot of fun-," said freshman

Steve Moon. "It breaks up the monotony around here." "I really enjoy it because all day long I sit in the classroom and I let out all my energy at night," Patty Abbot, freshman, said, "I like volleyball. I probably wouldn't be qualified for the varsity team, so this gives me a chance to enjoy a sport I like." · One player, freshman Dave Pilla, feels that some people are not putting enough effort into the volleyball intramurals. He enjoys

the games, but said that some people never bother to come to the games. "If the people show up, it will be good, but if they don't, then we might as well forget it," Pilla said. "If people sign up, they're obligated to come to the games." The majority of Cabrini's campus seems to like the volleyball intramurals. Participants and spectators alike look forward to enjoying themselves every Wednesday night.

ing a soccer ball around in the gym on Tuesday and Thursday nights, don't be alarmed, it is only the intramural indoor soccer teams playing soccer at its best. The intram.ural program is growing, indoor intramural soccer being an example of this expansion. Tehre are six teams consisting of both men and women who get together to play a fun game of soccer. The organizers of intramural soccer are Jeff Brun and Chris Collins. Brun said that the teams have six to eight players on each team . "We tried to divide the teams as evenly as possible," Brun said. "One man captain and one woman captain was appointed to each team." According to Collins, men's basketball coach John Dzik and they evenly placed soccer team members on the different teams while a lottery draw determined the placement of other students. Brun stated that the competition is pretty tight and the final scores are very close. Team no. 1 is in the lead by one point. Soccer intramural games are for both residents and commuters. ••ohe"ct>i'nhltft~r.'Steve Brown ·, said,

"The intramurals generate a lot of fun and interest in the student body . And at the same time the soccer players are keeping in shape during the off-season." Brown's only objection was the distribution of talent among the teams. "I think the talent could be more fairly distributed: women vs. women and men vs. men," he said. Brown also stated that there were many good women players citing Lisa Kostaneski, manager of the soccer team, as an example. "I think the girls are doing a good job," said John Yheaulon, member of team no. 1. "The soccer intramurals are great and very competitive." Terry Hundermark, member of team no. 3, also agreed that being involved in the intramurals is a lot of fun. She said, "It's a good exercise and everyone gets a chance to play, although at times the men can be aggressive." Brun and Collins plan on having playoffs in the program. The top two teams or maybe four teams will compete in the finals," Brun said. "The program has gone fantastically," Collins concluded. "It's a lot of fun. Everyone is taking it seriously. At the same time, we all have ·a· good time." ·

~8~--~----------------SP-orts StcirtinQ guard is team's asset BY MARY COLLINS Did you ever see a 5 foot, 5 inch, brown haired, blue eyed, special education aQd elementary ed major running around with a sweatsuit and sneakers? This description can only fit sophomore, Terri Leinenbach. Leinenbach is the starting guard on the Cabrini women's basketball team . Whenever Leinenbach isn't playing her recorder or drawing pictures for her elementary ed course you can usually find her shooting basketballs or dribbling down court in the gym. Leinenbach's past history in sports has helped her be a major asset to Cabrini women's Athletic Program. She went to Hillsborough High School in New Jersey and played for their basketball and softball teams for four years. Leinenbach believes "The women's basketball team has gone through a new transition because of their two new coaches, Mike Tenaglia and Jill Fausnaught." Leinenbach feels that since th_e new coaches have come to Cabrini

the tea m has mad e a maj or turn aro und . "Mi ke and J ill have a totally different philosophy than any other previo us coach that Ca b rini has had. T h ey are reteaching us the basics of basketball." "Our team is in last place in Division II but we are working on the fundamentals of the game and strengthening our own skills to help improve the team as a whole." ' "There seems to be a lot of spirit and enthusiasm on the team this year. We are pushing ourselves to become a team of unity. We work all out to help each other to overcome some of our weaknesses," Leinenbach said. Leinenbach 'has the highest shooting percentage and also -the high ,:st assists made this year. She commented on this by saying, "It doesn't really matter how many points you have as long as you get them with the help and support of the team. When asked ' about the team in general, Leinenbach paused for a

moment. " I fee l that the team is gr ea t and the help of this year's fres hm en has been a big boost for the tea m ." "Fresh man Eilee n Houston who I have spent much time with is an excellent player and next year she should see as much or more time on the court. I really enjoy working and playing with Eileen," said Leinenbach. Leinenbach feels that the women's basketball team is the most organized women's sport at Cabrini but there is still room for some improvement. "I think that more scholarships should be offered and most of all we really need to recruit new players. When talking to some of Leinenbach teammates they feel that Leinenbach is a big asset to the team, she's a good ball handler, a great shot, an excellent competitor , but most of all she is a good friend on and off the court. Leinenbach feels that the team would have a big boost if there were more fans supporting them at each game.

Cabrini's defense key to victory BY JOE KRAVITZ Valley Forge Christian College's Tom Mioni knows just how good of a player he really is. Bill Baker, headcoach of the Chr istian school is also aware that his 6'3" gua rd could have taken his talent to a larger college where all the pr essure would have not fallen solely on his shoulders. Despite the pressure, Mioni decided to take his act to V.F.C .C. on a daily basis. What Mioni has found after four seasons at Forge is that opponents in all shapes and forms have tried everything and anything possible to slow down his efforts to lead the Crusaders on to victory. In the latest adventures at Valley Forge, his opponent, Cabrini's Vince Mirabella, played what had to have been the best defensive game of his freshman year. Mioni was shut down to a mere 15 points, well below his 26.3 average. Efforts such as these are reasons why Cabrini College is ranked 10th nationally in the N.A.I.A. in defense. Defense is certainly the name of the game. Ray Young has learned this in the past season. Mike Bennett has always known it, and John Keating seems to play the game with the intention of handing in a strong defensive effort at the end of each contest. , Unfortunately, not all the Cavaliers are credited for contributing to such a defense that allows no more than 63 points per game on average . Why is it that when points are scored in the fashion that Robert Davis haS' scored of late, the jury seem to immediately question his ability to play d"efense? Granted, Davis will never perform defensively in the manner that some of his teammates do, yet Davis does make great efforts when they are in need . Davis admitted the following concerning his defensive style of play. "I have a lot to develop in the next few seasons as far as my man to man defense is concerned," he said. "However, I do feel that my ability to play zone defense is as good if not bette r than some of the defensive zone opponents tha t I have gone up agai nst." Wit h Cabr ini's na tionald efen=s ive ranking Dav is concluded, " Stats do speak for themselves. " Asst. coach Joe Kelly added , "Robert ' s defense was rather poor when he first began to play collegiate ball , yet one must expect this. You can 't expect an 18-year-old to walk into the gym and become a

ball hawk overnight. As long as he demonstrates the willingness to learn the defensive side of the game, I see no reason why he wouldn't develop into a fine allaround guard." With less than nine minutes remaining in the second half of the V.F .C.C. game, Davis stripped George Paradis, the Crusader playmaker, twice and converted both opportunities into points . This along with the job Mirabella, Bennet, and Keating perform _ed became a strong supporting cast for Ray Young . It seems that Dzik has a knack of getting more mileage out of a play er than one would expect. Playing probably the strongest mental and ·physical game that he ever has, 6'6" junior Ray Young produced 20 points along with a career high 22 rebounds . With five minutes remaining in the 68-68 deadlock, Cabrini slowed down the offense in hopes of stringing out a high percentage shot. Davis continually worked inside and out handling the playmaking duties with Keating and Mirabella . With only seven seconds remaining on the clock, Mike Bennett found himself with the ball just five feet away from giving the Cavaliers the victory at the buzzer . In his flight to the basket , however, he was fouled , thus set ting up two shots from the charity line . Bennett missed the first of the shots. Looking grimly towards the Cabrini bench he proceeded to step back into the frying pan and hit the second one. A slim 69-68 lead was · now on the side of Cabrini. One last shot was all the Crusaders had time for. Mioni got the ba11into the front court, he proceeded fo throw up a 30 foot desparation shot that hit the rim and fell short, giving Cabrini the hard fought victory. After · a few days layoff, the squad then came back in a Saturday afternoon game to defeat Cathedral College by a score of 87-62. The Cavaliers led this game right from the start. In hopes of not allowi ng the game to turn into a ru naw ay, Dzik utilized all of his players . Much to his liking, each playe r wa s re ady to contr ibute. John Kea ting lead the scoring pa r ade with 22 points . Mike Bennet t and Ra y Young chi pped in with 17 and 16 points apiece to ca rry the team to victor y. After these two satisfy ing results, the team was looking ahead to the Keys tone Athletic Conference Champion ships which were held this pas t weekend.

Tou-gh competition, l_ ack of support -Lady Cav's season BY DEBBIE JABLONSKI Game after game the · intense playing of the Lady Cavaliers has been shot down like a clay pigeon with a rifle. Every game the women play is played with great enthusiasm . However, this enthusiasm can cause problems in offensive and defensive playing. The Lady Cavaliers constantly left open holes giving the opposing teams many opportunities to score . By leaving deep gaps in the defense, the Lady Cavaliers allowed themselves to get behind in games and sometimes these gaps almost cancelled the opportunity for the women to get back in the game.

Although losing games seems depressing , not having suppor t from fans causes an even deeper state of depression. · The women play a very exciting game of basketball but why is there little support? Many of the people who come to the games are parents of the players. " Everyone likes to play to a packed house , " coach Mike Tenaglia said. "Traditionally more people follow men 's basket ball. This idea comes out of high school." Copipet ition for the Lady Cavaliers has been tough. In their game against Textile , Tenaglia said that although the team lost ,

they played relatively well . The ladies kept their composure which resulted in a moral victory. This game for the women was the best game played all year. Teamwork was seen at its best , although at times some players had their signals confused. With t his game the Lady Cavaliers showed they would be tough competition for any team . High scorers for Cabrini were Terri Leinenback with 14 points followed by Eileen Houston with 12 points . Tenaglia singled out Rosemary Di Giandomenica and Kate Connolly . as playing exceptionally well dur ing the game . The final score of the Cabrin i-Textile game was 53-76.

The Lady Cavaliers had two bright spots contained within their · days of struggle arid. depress.ion . The team instituted a new social activity which they hope to hold annually and the game against Rosemont wen t the way of the Cavaliers . Helen Goodwin , Women's Athletic Director, along with the coaching staff , planned a "parent/family" night gathering. After the Drexel game, families of the players gathered for refreshments in order that the team being a family idea be maintained . In their game against Rosemont , the women dominated the game . Coach Tenaglia sa id t hat ,t}le

Cavaliers were a better team . Since they were a better team he was allowed to play different play ers not normally given the oppor tunity to get into the game . With the playing of second string play ers, different options were given both offensively and defensively . The outcome of the game ·saw Cabrini beat Rosemont by a score of 78-57. By days of tough competition , the women 's record is now 5-9. ThE! tough competition for the Lady Cavaliers came from Ursinus , Drexel and Widener. The respec!iy~ scor es were 61-4p, 57-44, and 74-34.
