Friday, October 30, 1981



When does life begin? This has been the much asked question since the Supreme Court made the decision to legalize abortions in 1973. This decision gave women the constitutional right to have an abortion for at least the first six months of pregnancy. Also, the federal government began to pay for these abortions through Medicaid . Four years ago, however, antiabortionists tried to knock down the ruling and succeeded in limiting the use of federal money for

abortions . Only in certain cases was federal money permitted for the use of abortions . The cases included if a mother's life was endangered or if the mother was a victim of rape or incest. When they didn't receive enough support for a constitutional amendment prohibiting abortion, anti-abortionsts focused on a bill, the Hyde Amendment, which would give fetuses protection under the 14th Amendment. This amendment states that "any person" shall not be deprived of "life,

liberty, or property without due process" or "equal protection of the laws.'.' The Hyde Amendment, co-sponsored by Senator Jesse Helms (RN .C.) and Representative Henry Hyde (R-111.) would state that human life begins at conception and fesuses would therefore be considered as "persons." The Hyde Amendment has already had an affect on the issue . An estimated number of 395,000 federally funded abortions were performed in fiscal 1977,according to Forbes Magazine .



In Fiscal 1979, the number decreased 3,985 and rose to 37,041 in fiscal 1980. Despite federal funding being cut, the number of abortions has not decreased. According to reports from Planned Parenthood, it was projected that in the United States 1.6 million abortions would be performed in 1980. It was estimated that 1,320,320 abortions were performed in 1977, 1,409,600 in 1978,and 1.5 million in 1979. The one word that surrounds the controversy of this issue is the world "conception . " Helms

defines conception "as the fertilization of the egg by the sperm,'' Sicnece Magazine said. Hyde, the magazine said, "defines it as the implantation of the embryo, which takes place roughly five days after fertilization ." One consequence of the Helms/Hyde bill is the possibility that certain widely used means of birth control, the intrauterine device and birth control pills could any state legislation having to do Continued on Page 3

Convocation ceremony changed to evening BY MAUREEN CARROLL

For the first time in the histo. ry of the college, Cabrini will celebrate convocation in the evening . On Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. in the Bruckmann Chapel, the Moravian Trombone Choir from Bethlehem, Pa. will entertain students, families and friends followed by a reception in the Mansion . Jo Harris Brenner, assistant to the dean of academic affairs, said of convocation, "It · is a new time, a new place, a new format." The reasons behind this change have their bases in the growing population of Cabrini. Previously, convocation was held at the open time slot at 1 p.m. on Tuesday or Thursday.

However, now there are more scholarships and honors to present and more students to serve so the one hour period is no longer sufficient. Students at Cabrini have mixed feelings about the change in time. Some argue that it is more convenient for family and friends to attend, while others believe it to be a detriment. "I think it's great," said Patty Martelli, senior. "I had hoped they would rearrange things to be at night rather than the daytime. It's always been a problem getting family and friends to come during the day." "It's great, except that I have an evening class," said Carol Wahl, junior. "It's more inconvenient than convenient.

Also, commuters could be there in the daytime." "I think it's a good idea for two reasons," said Jim Lawlor, senior." First, in the past I've had to miss it. At 1:00, there were conflicts because that 's when meetings are held . Second, parents can make it." "My mother lives two hours away," said Kathy Filippo, senior. "She can't drive at night. It was more convenient in the daytime. Many parents can't come because of the distance they would have to travel and the time. Also, more students could attend in the daytime." The celebration of convocation was instituted by Dorothy Brown, Ed . D., and former academic dean of Cabrini

College. It had been held in the Mansion for the past decade and once or twice in the gym early in Brown's tenure, according to Brenner. Not only will the students, but the college itself, celebrat in the convocation ceremony . The Moravian Trombone Choir was carefully chosen by Brenner because it has the distinguished reputation as being one of the oldest musical organizations in the country. Since 1982marks Cabrini's 25th anniversary and Philadelphia and Pennsylvania's 300th anniversary of its founding, she felt it would be appropriate to have this group play at convocation. Brenner said, "Convocation provides an appropriate setting for the announcing of honors

and scholarships on campus, and to honor the presenters and ·recipients of these scholastic achievements ." Among those honored will be the dean's list students, Bruckmann Scholars, and the recipients of the Junior Saturday Club of Wayne Special Education Scholarship to a special education major; Cabrini College Alumni Association Scholarship to a freshman; Cabrini College Alumni Association 1980 Fund Scholarship to the child of an alumnus; Lawrence R. Sedler Award; Jane Schwartz Benjamin Memorial Scholarship; and the Patience Cavanagh McFadden Memorial Scholarship .

Edi tori a I: Loquitur commended A mark of distinction has recently been bestowed upon the Loquitur. It has received a First Class evaluation from the Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) and the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA). Last year's editor-in-chief Jim Lawlor, advisor Jerome Zurek and the staff are to be commended for a job well done. Each year the Loquitur is evaluated by judges from the ACP and NSPA as it was this past spring. Publication judges, qualified professional journalists or past or present advisers of top-rated publications, critique individual publications. · Loquitur's honor rating was achieved through the scoring of particular categories. Loquitur was commended on containing "a wide array of news, information, opinion, and entertainment of interest and value to its readers." "Coverage of classroom events and curriculum developments" have been cited as attributes that "bespeak Loquitur's usefulness and vitality to its readers." Also the

Strike reflects other problems BY JOYCE PATITUCCI Anytime the Philadelphia · Federation of Teachers goes on strike, it is the major recipient of the wrath of politicians, parents, students and observers. An article and "What do you think" in the last issue of LOQ..UITUR clearly point this out. The fact remains, however ignored by the masses, that the only reason the teachers are on strike in the first place is because their contract, ratified and publicly approved by the majority one year ago, was not honored. Such violation of any other labor union's contract would be protested by a strike and largely supported as well. But whether people realize it or not, the reactions against the strike are in themselves a social commentary on life in Philadelphia. It is interesting that although it costs almost $4,000 to educate one child in a Phila. public school for one year, the system increasingly turns out graduates who are below the national average in reading, writing and basic math skills. According to a recent survey in TIME magazine, fewer than half of Philadelphia public school pupils are at the level they should be at in basic skills development. More than 13 percent of these students finish in the bottom 1/6 nationwide. Yet we never see or

hear parents protesting the inadequate education their children are obviously receiving. The only times we see or hear from parents is during a strike, when a school is permanently shut or when a social service, such as free hot lunches, is curtailed. Why? Because expanded social programs and parental neglect have turned the system into an effectual babysitting service. Many parents expect their children to be breakfasted, lunched and disciplined often ignoring the real reason their children are in school to begin with; to receive a quality education. Qµality does not mean tend· ing to a child's primitive needs and keeping him off the streets until three each day. It means teaching students the basics and enhancing their development until they reach the twelfth grade. So where are the protesting parents at test time? Oblibious, and for two reasons. One is quite simply apathy. Second, but never admittedly, is welfare. It has become the thing in Philadelphia for unwed mothers, . particularly among minorities, to have as many illegitimate children as possible in order to receive a bigger D.P.A. check. In 1979,there were 25,000 babie,s born, 11,000 of them illegitimately. Almost 80 percept of these were from minorities. Having been brought in to the

world for all the wrong reasons, these children grow up fatherless, bitter and often violent. Consequently the schools have more than their share of discipline problems with children who find it difficult enough to be civil let alone educated. The schools are already plagued with juvenile gangsters who belong behind bars, and not behind the closed doors of a classroom with a helpless teacher. Of course there is no denying that greedy politicians, a corrupt schoolboard and some unqualified teachers also account for many of the schools' problems. But it's about time we began calling things as they are and force these people who dump their kids in the school's lap to face reality. These parents must be discouraged from bringing financially profitable but uncared for children into the world. The school system was never intended to be a loco-parentis day care center In his recent book, "Teach Your Own," education philosopher John Holt writes, "People who teach their own kids like their children and have some sense of personal responsibility for them." It is certainly something for all of us to

Mike on morals and money BY MIKE HIUiEY This conversation was recently overheard on campus, I feel it makes its point. "Hey Fenn, aren't you gald it's Friday?" "Yea Hilz, it has been a demand, ing week. I had an Organic test and tres Spanish quizzes. I don't think I'll ever see Spain when I get out." "Yea, it's been that type of week · for me too. I had two Buzzard tests, the kind that if you don't get at least an A you'll never make it in the business world!" "Hilz, I wish there was some place on campus where people could sit and have a couple of beers." "You know Feen, they proposed . that . the Wigwam be the sight of a

Happy Hour on Fridays between 5 and 8. A lot of teachers were for it, but Mary Louise said it was IMMORAL, so we couldn't have it." "Hilz, why don't we get some people together and go to the Wayne Tavern? I have practice tomorr"ow at 9, so we'd only stay for a couple." "No one really has a car; anyway I have a race tomorrow." "Hilz, anything going on tonight on campus?" "No, the cafeteria is being used for a wedding reception." "How do you know that?" "I saw them setting up the bar during dinner, so I went and asked what was going on. They said something about a wedding reception .

"Figures, what about tomorrow night?" "Nothing Feen, juse social in the Mansion. It costs 100 bucks to get in; they are trying to raise money to get more phones." . "Hilz, how about crashing it, or watching from the balcon;x?" "Feen, who wants to watch a bunch of rich people laughing and drinking at some social?" "Hilz, maybe if we called our Happy Hour the 'Friday Social,' we would be allowed to have it!" "No way Feen ! You have to charge a lot more than $2 for it to be MORAL!"


Sandy Cabot - freshman I don't think the bill is fair. Victims of rape or" incest should be able to get an abortion. I also feel that parental consent for an abortion is not necessary for victims of rape or incest. I personally feel abortion should be illegal but certain exceptions should be made.

Kelly Vertullo - sophomore They have got to be kidding! An incest victim under 18 may not be able to get both parents' consent because of self conviction or fear of being physically harmed. For rape and incest victims abortion should be easier to obtain but all others should be illegal.

Frank Morelli - senior I think that showing women aborted fetuses pictures before and after the abortion could be psychologically devastating to the individual. I don't think a bill like this would even have to be brought about if people would just have better morals and values concerning life in general.

Edward Christ - Business Adm. Dept. Criminal abortion is wrong no matter what circumstances. Two wrongs do not make a right, therefore, if a woman is raped it does not justify the taking of a human life . Medical abortion, to save the mother's life, is a completely different situation and I don't really consider that to be an abortion.

It will not be an average dance." Jensen feels that everyone should attend, or they will miss a very good dance . Also, more than th-e usual refreshments will be served, including beer, punch, assorted snacks, and other foods. Jensen also said that the dance will be promoted as much as possible, and , all support will be greatley appreciated. According to Jensen, "The

Here comes the iudge

BY DEBBIE JABLONSKI Once again the residency staff is hoping the theme of co-respon sibility within the student residencies will spread . The means for spreading this idea is a Hall Courrcil. In every residency there exists a Hall Council. Those students on the Hall Council set up certain standards or ideas by which the students living in the residence can promote the co-responsibility idea . Gus Nicoletti , director of res ident life, said that a Hall Council can be defined by the students living in aTesidence . "There is a basic idea that the

By a presidential recom mendation Judge Sandra Day O'Connor of Arizona , was con sidered and then unanimously approved by a 99-0 Senate Vote . There was one abstaining vote. Justice O'Connor will assume the post previously held by _Justice Stewart Potter . He retired in July leaving the position empty . O'Connor served six years as judge in the Arizona State Superior Court. For the previous 18 months, she has served in the Arizona Court of Appeals. In 1970, O'Connor was the first woman elected to the Arizona Senate . Also, she was the first woman to serve as majority leader of any state senate in the nation. Justice O'Connor, in somerespects , can be called a conserva-

ti ve feminist. She took the first step in changing Arizona statutes against women . During her term in the state senate, she voted for the Equal Rights Amendment. She even urged a popular vote be taken of the question . As a state senator, she supported bills that limited state spending, restored the death penalty and banned busing to achieve a racial balance . She voted against gun control and state aid to private and parochial schools . Before Senate approval of her presidential recommendation , a three day confirmation hearing was necessary . The dominant issue was clearly her past voting record on abort ion . Although Justice O'Connor is opposed to abortion , several questions were raised by the committee . On Feb . 26, 1970, she voted to approve a bill that would end a pre vious existing anti-abortion ruling . However, O'Connor never really ruled on the subject of abortion . Associate Justice O'Connor is now the youngest of the eight justices sitting on the bench .

Course an in-depth study ' BY ELIZABETH KANARAS The Seminars course is . more than just a requirement for certain science majors . It is an in depth study through acquired and applied knowledge . The seminar class is for majors in biology , medical technology and pre -med. The course is instructed by Anna Kruse . The course is designed to introduce new topics in biology that go in depth , and have not been studied in any other course where 1 time did not permit in the past. After the knowledge is acquired it is then applied through field trips , speakers off campus, seminars and films . One of the field trips was to Wyeth Inc ., in West Chester. At the lab the students saw penicillin production . They try to find new strains of penicillin and new ways of improving the antibiotic. Another trip was to Brookhaven Nation Labs ., in Long Island, N .Y . Here the students were counseled . on careers . Some were genetics , environmental science, physics , nuclear medicine and of course bi -

ology . And the most recent trip was to the. Medical Examiners Office to witness an autopsy. An autopsy shows whether a person died of natural causes or unknown causes .. When the causes are unknown the vital organs and other parts of the body undergo toxicology studies. These studies show if there were any drugs or poisons in the body . Some of the speakers have been from Hahnemann Medical College, Cornell University and the Wistar Institute . The off campus seminars have been at Ursinus College and Bryn Mawr College . Kruse feels that tlie field trips are crucial. " They introduce the student to sophisticated equipment and techniques." Junior Anne Breen , a biology major , stated , " The course helps me for the future in biology as well as in other scientific careers ." Kruse added, " It is great public relations for the college . A lot more people won't say , "Where 's that? I never heard of it."

staff uses as a guideline, " Nicoletti said , "The idea that students should help the Resident Assistant (RA) when a problem arises , to work with the RA and to promote the idea of co-responsibility ." Fran ·k Cheeseman , freshman and president of Counsel Hall's Hall Council, has another opinion' about the duties of Hall Council. He said, "We act as a mediator between Ron Katkochin , resident di rector of Counsel Hall and the residents ." " The idea of a Hall Council is a good idea ," Susan Accetta said . "It gives more people a chance to get inyolved ."

Cabrini's shadowed BY PAM CLARK and JEANNE PROKO

Unexplained. A young girl dressed in white walking towards you in the dead of night. Unexplained. A wisp of hair caresses your face when you're sleeping, and a smell of rum and bananas permeates the room. Unexplained . A whispered lament for a child long-lost. For years the Cabrini legend has ·been ·a controversial issue on campus for students and faculty alike. Carter Craigie, professor of social science, is the man to talk to about this issue. Craigie, a talented story teller, has been entertaining students with the Cabrini legend for several years . Craigie will once again entertain the students at the annual Halloween dinner. A popular legend on the campus concerns the romance of the wealthy daughter of one of the families who used to live in the Mansion and a stable boy in what is now Grace Hall. The innocently romantic beginning and tragic twist of its conclusion form the basis of the story's popularity . The romance was doomed from the beginning, for the weaithy · daughter's and the stable boy's love could never be accepted according to the rigid social standards of their society . The secretive romance contin -

ued for several years, until the daughter discovered she was pregnant. Attempts to conceal her pregnancy were unsuccessful. The stable boy realized all was lost once the father found out. So rather than face any confrontation, the young man hanged himself in what is now the tower in Grace Hall. · There are two versions of what happened to the young woman . One is that she jumped off the inside balcony of the Mansion and died instantly. Craigie said a blood stain appears under the carpet on the anniversary of her death. The second version is that she carried the baby to term. The child was stillborn and the woman buried the baby in the apple orchard behind the Mansion . Cabrini students have for years been reporting several "unexplainable" occurances. One such story concerns the Rudy Rooymans Counseling Center, which used to be a womens' dorm . Craigie related that one year before a vacation, a mother was resting in her daughter 's room waiting for her to return from a class. As she was resting, she felt strands of hair brush across her face. The mother heard a small cry of a woman's voice saying , "My baby, my baby. Where is my baby?" As the voice died away , (sorry for the pun), an aroma of

past returns to .haunt several times in Woodcrest. "If my memory serves me correctly," Craigie paused, "It was on the first floor.'' He added that these sightings occurred in a room where the doors • and windows were locked . Once more the woman questioned, "My baby, my baby . Where is my baby?" And once more the rum and banana smell drifted through the room. On the first snowfall of the year, although not for the past three or four years, footprints have been seen leading from the Mansion to Grace Hall. Nothing unusual in that, right? Perhaps we forgot to add that a tall man dressed in black was reported walking in that direction making the tracks. Again, nothing unusual. However , someone once went up to him to speak and this man, who's face has never been seen, vanished .

ACCORDING TO LEGEND, this is the Grace Hall tower where a

young stable boy hung himself. (Photo by Debbie Jablonski) run and banana swept the room . " That smell has yet to be explained, " Craigie remarked .

A woman with long dark ·hair dressed from neck to toe in a white nightgown has been· reported

Even though Craigie has never seen the tall man nor the young woman, the footprints, the bloodstains, heard the voice nor smelled the rum and banana aromas , he remains open-minded . As he says, "There's nothing to tell me not to believe it , so ... " And so , the next time you are walking across campus at night and an unknown sound makes you quicken your pace, don't look over your shoulder . Run .

Career and family mix for Serotta BY JEANNE PILCICKI

A familiar person running around campus , involved in everything, and making time for everyone is Carol Serotta . Carol Serotta, a five-year teacher at Cabrini, maintains a successful teaching career and a busy home life. Serotta is considered a part-time teacher in the math department as well as being coordinator of the secondary education majors . Serotta was born and raised in South Philadelphia . She attended South Philadelphia High School and the University of Pennsylvania for her undergraduate work, master's degree, and she plans to obtain her doctorate degree from ~he University of Pennsylvania . Serotta first heard about Cabrini

College through another mathe matics teacher at Cabrini, Mr . Robert McGee, while doing math ematics research at the University of Pennsylvania towards her doctorate. Before coming to Cabrini, she taught at West Philadelphia High · School, Beaver College, and the University of Pennsylvania. "I prefer a small college to a large college because it seems to have a friendlier atmosphere ," Serotta said . .Aside from her work at Cabrini Serotta devotes most of her time to her family. She is involved in just about every sport with raising three boys . The license plate upon her car reads JAWS which stands for her three sons; Judd, Andrew, and William Serotta.

Serotta was involved with man y things in high school and college . She was officer of her high school class, captain of four varsit y teams , president of her college sorority , and a member of ever y major society . Serotta 's eager participation is seen not only in Cabrini , but also within her community of Lansdale where she is active within the gifted program in the school system and other community affairs . She has traveled all over the world, enjoys playing tennis, anp working with calligraphy. She shares with others her sense of humor, especially in her classes . She is energetic, enthusiastic, and dedicated to her CAROL SEROTTA'S personality also shines in the classroom. family and career as a teacher.

One freshman girl, who would like to remain anonymous, would appreciate it if that special someone would give her a smile and a hello rather than his quirky chin raised slightly. Another irritating quirk is over reacting by breaking into a hysterical fit of laughter and clutching one's rib cage. You would be surprised at what kind of noises come out of individuals, yet they are still termed as a laugh. Beware, someone may be laughing at your quirk right this minute.

Ghosts, goblins invited BY RITACALJCAT

Early childhood education majors at Cabrini College are scheduled to sponsor a Halloween party for young children on Oct. 28 in the Little Theater . The students planning the event are members of the student Pennsylvania State Education Association. The purpose for the Halloween party is twofold . First, the party provides for the joy and excitement of young children . Many of the children who will take part in the festivities are from the Children's School at the college. Friends and children of Cabrini students are also invited to share in the activities. Second, the party involves the members of PSEA in planning and executing activities for young children. The planners have to be

sure that the act1v1t1esare exc1tmg and fun-filled . To ensure success , puppets, magicians , ghosts and goblins will be there . Andrew J. Litavec, assistant professor of education , is t he faculty advisor for this event. He said that the co-chairpersons, Kathy Mignogna '82, and Lisa Fitzgerald '82 , are working diligently to ensure the success of the PSEA Halloween party. "They have worked closely with the Children's School to plan the activities for the party," said Litavec. The attitude on campus is rather a positive one. Yvette Foye , '82, plans to attend with her cpild. "I'm going to bring my little one to the party because it seems as if it will be a good time for him," ~ Foye said.

flow more smoothly. Lattore acts as the mediator between the clients who call Cabrini looking for help and the students seeking jobs . The number of jobs exceeds the number of students who are able to fill them. The biggest problem lies in fitting the students' schedule to the hours the client requests. Another major difficulty is transportation. Although some clients provide transportation, most do not. However, since the Job Squad advertisement runs in the local newspapers, many jobs are within walking distance . Students are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities offered through Job Squad. It has been set up by the financial aid of-

At the present time however, Lattore is training a few work gr ant students to help her in the actual organization and management of the program.

Lattore encourages any interested students to contact her through the financial aid office. She said, "Job Squad, is a great , learning experience. Not only does one get to meet people, but they also get to know this area better and make a few extra dollars."

Eeminine intuition : fact or fiction?

Pasquarello returns students, they find that commuting to college "is not much different than commuting to high school." Thus far, the majority of people that have spoken to Pasquarello about academic problems have been commuters . "The response has been weak," Pasquarello said. "Either not all of the students are aware" that the position exists or else "they are all well adjusted." Another possibility, he said , is that many of the new students have encountered problems they have been able to handle thus far .

gestures doesn't increase as people mature. Once a child reaches grade school level, that learned knowledge of nonverbal communication stays with a person for the remainder of their lives, remarks Dr. Hall. It's important to note that lectures and "awareness seminars" are being conducted to improve sensitivity in managers, especially for males. However, by labelling intuition as a feminine trait or gift, you are acting out the stereotyped conditioning that your environment has placed upon you. "This should be de-emphasized," said Dr . Hall.

Dr. Judith Hall, associate professor of psychology at John Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md., also finds this label sexist. She stated, "A woman's ability to interpret what others are saying nonverbally depends on careful analysis of the gestures and expressions at play ." Dr. Hall conducted a Profile of Non-Verbal Sensitivity test (PONS ) and the results showed that 80 percent of the time women had a higher level of analyzing exactly what emotion was being expressed.

What is a binge, and what type of binges do people go on? Webster Dictionary says, a binge is a merr y frolic , a period of over indulgence . A binge can last for a day, a week or months. When I asked a few students as tq what kind of binges they go on , I received such .answers as shopping sprees ; when they get their hands on mom and dads charge cards ; food bingers, as in eating an entire-bag of Snickers bars , or a gallon of ice cream, better yet , beer binges . That's a real merry frolic . Others mighl take to the more serious side of binging. Perhaps , maybe a period of studying , and really hitting the books ; or a fitness binge , keeping in shape , and not eating the bag of snickers . Here's what a few familiar people said , and that their binies were : Maria Carbone - popcorn , cake Tim Feeney - gambling, golfing _Kate Connolly - chocolate Susan Roth • McChicken sandwiches Ray Young - physical exercises Janice Jaglowski - soda Dave Oswinkle - drinking Eileen Houston - pizza Denise Clarke - cleaning As for myself, I'm on an eating binge seven days a week, especially M&M's, while people like Martin Clancy like to stick to the beer part of the binge. Other times I go phone happy, and can't stop dialing. Summertime is when I got through the physical fitness period , and somehow I end up blowing that. l wonder what's ne;,ct!

but not necessarily assigned to active duty . Find out about it.

Drop your guard for a minute . Even though you're in college right now , there are many aspects of the Army ·that you might find very ;attractive. Maybe even irresistible. See for yourself.

MEDSOIOOLONUS You read it right . The Army's Health Professions Scholarship Program provides necessary tuition, books, lab fees, even microscope rental during medical school. Plus a monthly stipend that works out to about $6,000 a year . · After you're accepted into medical school, you can be accepted into our program . Then you're commissioned and you go through school as a Second Lieutenant in the Army Reserve . The hitch? Very simple . After you graduate , yo'&give the Army a year as a doctor for every year the Army gave you as a med student, with a minimum obligation of three years' service .

INIIRNSHIR RESIDENCY & CASH BONUSES Besidd scholarships to medical school, the Army also offers AMA-approved first-year post-graduate and residency training programs . Such training adds no further obligation to the scholarship participant . But any Civilian Graduate Medical Education sponsored by the Army gives you a one-year obligation for every year of sponsorsh ip , with a minfmum obligation of two years' service . But you get a $9,000 annual bonus every year you're paying back medical school or postgraduate training . So you not only get your med ical education paid for, you get extra pay wh ile you 're paying it back . Not a bad deal.

A GREAT PLACE TOBEA NURSE The rich tradition of Arm y Nursing is one of excellence , dedication , even heroi sm . And it's a challenge to live up to. Today , an Army Nurse is the epitome of · professionalism, regarded as a critical member of the Army Medical Team . A BSN degree is required . A nd the clinical spectrum is almost impossible to match in civilian practice . And, since you'll be an Army Officer , you'll enjoy more respect and authority than most of your civilian counterparts . You'll also enjoy travel opportunities , officer's pay and officer's privileges . Army Nursing offers educational opportunities that are second to none .

It comes out .to about $1.100 a year for one weekend a month and two weeks annual training . And now we have a special program to help you fit the Army Reserve around your school schedule . It's worth a look.



Some may find college to be the right place at the wrong time for a variety of reasons The Army can help them , too . A few years in the Arm y can help them get money for tuition and the maturity to use it wisely. The Army has a program in which money saved for college is matched two-for-one by the government . Then. if one qualifies, a generous bonus is added to that . So 2 years of service can get you up to $15,200 for college. 3 and 4 years up to $20.100 . In addition. bonuses up to $5.000 are available for 4-year enlistments in selected skills.

We hope these Army opportunities have intrigued you as well as surprised you . Because there is indeed a lot the Army can offer a bright person like you . For more information . send the coupon .

If you 're about to get your law degree and be admitted to the bar, you should consider a commission in the Judge Advocate General Corps .

Living with a roommate-~s yours right for you? BY JEANNE PROKO How to Survive a Roommate

by James Comer 235 pp. New York: Franklin Watts. $7.95 How to Survive a Roommate is exactly that. A questionnaire type of style written in a way that combines comedy with true personal experience in living with a roommate.

James Comer gives checklists on how to choose a roommate, including roommate characteristics you can observe while passing the potato chips . Under etiquette, one of the lettered questions to be reflected silently was, does his /her general demeanor indicate that

he's more familiar with a dining table or a trough? An informative piece that Comer includes is: Comer's Law of Life No. 1-23. One of the laws I found quite funny was No. 6: Most college dormitories combine the charm and coziness of a penitentiary with none of its securities . He labeled dorms into two general categories: quaintly corroding and high-rise hideous. I wish I had a chance to glance through this book last year . Comer combines his rapier wit with common sense advice that we need to be reminded of. By the way, if you enjoy Joan Rivers and Phyllis Diller's jokes, you'll love this book, for Comer writes jokes for

them. A few chapters that might be especially helpful to college students are Chapter 1-Who needs a roommate?; Chapter 4-College

Williams brings Cabrini dance experience BY SANDRA McNAMARA

"Not once when I was a little girl, did I ever walk down the street, I always danced." And if these words are true, then everyone at Cabrini College who is now enrolled in dance classes knows Cabrini's new dance instructor, Jean Williams. Williams' background in stance is both very professional and extensiv~. She studied dance while a little girl, but was forced to stop tr~ining at.,ag~ __ eight because, "I didn't want to practice." While in high school she had thoughts of being an interior deco rator, but soon realized that her heart was still in dancing . She began training again at age 19 with Thomas Cannon, and soon became involved with all facets of dance, including dance-theater. Williams feels that it is essentfal for the professional dancer to have proper training.

"There are so many schools" she said, "but they don't teach you to the point to work. Perfection and good training -that's what is important." Feel\ng so strongly about dance as she does, Williams decided to start her own dance school and company in 1954,The Germantown Dance Theater. The dance-theater is dedicated to training dancers to their fullest potential, and has trained many professional dancers. In most recent years one of Williams students won the Emmy award. One can see that Williams is proud of her company. "We're a small school, with usually 9 to 12 dancers in the company at once and we offer many kinds of dance training," she said . Starting on Oct. 27, Williams' company and other professional dance companies were at Cabrini

for an event called Dance Week. Dance Week presented four professional dance companies from the area which included lectures and demonstrations. The activities were held at 8:30 and 9:50 a.m. and were free of charge. The culmination of Dance Week· is tonight with the Dance Week Dance festival at 8 p.m. in the gym. Featured tonight will be four regional ballet companies . followed by a reception to meet the artists. Williams is excited about the events of Dance Week and credits Daniele Perna, director of ,the theater program, with the idea. "Everyone had ideas and he brought it all together," she said. Willimas urges students to go to the Dance Festival. It is free and it's an unique way to see what kind of dance you like," she said.

end of a week of dance lectures, demonstrations and films presented in the Little Theater. Explanations and exhibitions of various dance styles and pieces were included at these presentations . The different dance companies were represented on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursda y nights . Perna, who originated the idea of the program , expressed that he would like to see a good turnout at tonight's main performance which includes the dance companies . "The college is very fortunate to have this diverse group of artists . Here is an opportunity for students to learn to appreciate the art of dancing." Perna said . Perna continued, "It would normally be expensive to see many of

these professionals , but all students are invited to watch the dancers perform free of charge ." Rita Jones , agrees that attending the dance festival would be worthwhile . " It gives the community a rare chance to see all different styles of dance . You can learn a lot just by wat ching." she said . Jones is also the director of the Rita Jones Dance Co. and a dance teacher for Cabrin i' s Visual and Performing Arts workshop . Perna said that there was a similar,program at Cabrini over , the summer , but this performance "promises to be much fuller and a lot better." The festival is free for Cabrini students. The cost for others is $3. The price for the festival and reception is $6.


Victorian and modern love contrasted in film BY KATHY McCARTNEY

Romance, intrigue, and passion is what you will find if you go to see • 'The French Lieutentant 's Woman" ..... and much more! In Karl Reisz ' s and Harold Pinter's production of John Fowles' novel you will find a romantic story that appeals not only to the senses but to the intellect as well. ''The French Lieutentant 's Woman " is about a woman named Sarah Woodruff living in the Victorian era as a tutor and an actress in the 1970's named Anna who portrays Sarah in one of her films . Both females are played by Meryl Streep . Streep 's lover is played by Jeremy Irons . He portrays Sir Charles Smithson in the Victorian era and Mike , Anna's lover, in the modern era .· "The French Lieutentant ' s Woman" is a love story between

Charles Smithson and Sarah Woodruff. Charles is already engaged to a high class society woman, Ernestina, (played by Lynsey Baxter) when he meets Sarah. Sarah is a beautiful woman seen in the streets and woods of England walking by herself and is labeled by the townspeople as, a mentalfy aiiaemolfonally unstable person . A rwnor is spread that Sarah waits at the end of a dock looking out over the sea and hopes for her French lover to return . This is where Charles and Sarah first meet . Charles is drawn to Sarah like a magnet and is torn between his oath to his fiancee and the obsession he has for Sarah. Sarah is torn by the feelings she has for Charles and the feelings of guilt that accompany them .

In the Victorian era sex was neither mentioned nor to be enjoyed by women. Sarah Woodruff enjoys these feelings but is tortured by society's values and morals and therefore sees herself as a worthless whore who should be submitted to punishment. Charles Smithson at first convinces himself of only feeling compassion towards Sarah and is willing to help her . But as the story progresses Charles finds his feelings go beyond mere pity . The Jove between Mike and Sar ah seems to be more open and uninhibited but not as deep as the love Sarah and Charles share. The movie then switches to the 1970's where Mike and Anna are lovers . They work together on a film which portrays Sarah Woodruff's life.

Meryl Streep's and Jeremy Irons' portrayals of the John Fowle's characters are well mastered and is nothing short of good taste. The time periods alternate throughout the movie, leaving the audience a bit confused at first. The film has it's slow spots but it is forever keeping the audience in check. The plot is continuously changing eras leaving the mind involved in so many different levels that during the slower parts the audience is in deep thought and overwhelmed with curiousity of how the film is to end . The scenery and music are excellent tools in helping to express the thoughts and feelings of the five characters, one of them being society .

The colors and scenery are gloomy , dark, and cold in the Victori an era In the beginning, whereas in the modern era everything is bright and full of vibrant colors. But as the movie progresses the scenes alternate and the Victorian characters are surrounded by beautiful skies and waters. Even the clothing worn is no longer drab grays and dull greens but whites, beiges and light blues . The modern characters are in a dark smokey atmosphere surrounded by confusion and sadness, while the Victorian has a peaceful and serene atmosphere to it. "The French Lieutenant's Woman" is a well written and well produced film. It gives the audience a look into the Victorian society and how it was to live back in that time .

"This year's schedule is the toughest program in basketball history at Cabrini College," stated Coach John Dzik. The tryouts, which began on Oct. 5, have fostered a 15-member team, eight of which are new players. Prerequisites for acceptance, according to Dzik, are ability, competitiveness, intelligence and a team attitude. Three new recruits are transfer stooents from Delaware County Community College: Dodie Watkins, a sophomore, who was second leading all-time scorer and rebounder, among other accomplishments; Mike Hendricks, a junior, who played for Delaware County Community College for two years and was voted MVP on the team; and Dan Welde, a junior, who "brings an enthusiasm to the game which will be good for the team." Dzik conducts a rigorous practice program consisting of drills which are "basically a breakdown of basketball fundamentals in a drill situation that they can incorporate into a game sjtuation." . John McQµeen, a freshman who played basketball for four years at Dobbins Vocational Technical

Loquitur - Friday, October 30, 1981 I


School, considers this camp to be more difficult - both physically and mentally demanding. However, it has improved his ability, and ultimately helped the team, in general, whom he feels are like a family. "Coach Dzik treats me like a friend, not just a player," he said. "He's interested in me as a person. Out of all the coaches I have played for, he would be considered number 1. "Last season Cabrini won the Keystone Athletic Conference Championship, creating a tough goal for the new team to strive for. However, Dzik feels his new players will be very competitive and hopes to achieve what the team did last year. The 15 members of the new Cabrini basketball team are: Jim Baukal, Martin. Clancy, Robert Davis, Tim Feeney, Mike Lowry, Ron Lynch, Terry Mancini, Tom McGowan, John McQµeen, Vince Marabella, Dodie Watkins, and Dan Welde. Tri-captains are: Ray Young, Mike Bennett, and John Keating. Tryouts have not been completed yet for the women's basketball team, but Coach Mike Tanaglia believes "there is good competitive action for positions on the team."

Tennis teams' outlook

teams start training

He prefers the recruits to have some prior basketball background. "When they come in as freshman," he claims, "I have time togroom then properly, so that by the time they are seniors, they are seasoned players." Tanaglia, who is also the Athletic Director for Delaware County Community College, has recruited two new women this year from DCCC, Annetta DeJesse and Debbie Harvey. He thinks they will be an asset to the team. Other players trying out are Lisa Hurst from Mount Pleasant High School and Eileen Herbig from St. Maria Goretti High School. Last year's members are Terri Leinenbach, Eileen Houston, Kate Connelly, Sue Masino and Rosemary DiGiandomenico. Practice for the women's team is presently conducted twice weekly beginning with an exercise program, followed by drills such as shooting baskets one-on-one, dribbling around cones and refining ball-handling skills. The season will begin with a game against Spring Garden College in Philadelphia on Monday, Nov. 30, followed by Misericordia College on Tuesday, Dec. 1, also in Philadelphia.

a bright future


This fall Cabrini College has a women's tennis team due to the efforts of Sue Roth, '84. Ron Lynch, '84, anticipates following her lead with men's tennis on campus for the spring semester. Helen "Goody" Goodwin, women's athletic director, said the women had been interested in tennis as a team sport for several years but lacked committment. "Roth was the catalyst that created the women's tennis team." Goodwin calls Roth and this year's group of women "dedicated." The team now has a coach with reg~lar practice sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays and a schedule of matches. Roth came to Cabrini thinking team tennis were established. Carol Wahl, '83, wanted to play too. The two women worked together to establish the team. SUE ROTH prepares for volley at a weekday practice.

,Cavaliers dominate game N. C. C. bows 0-7 BY TOM DEMATTEIS

The members of the soccer team are hoping that a 7-0 win over Northeast Christian College on Oct. 10 will be the turning point of their season. The early part of the season was marked by inconsistent play by the Cavaliers. After making a strong showing in their opening 3-2loss to Delaware County Community College, they made a very poor showing against Beaver College. This was followed a few weeks later by a well played 1-1 tie against a strong Philadelphia Community College team. The team then lost a 3-2 game to Lancaster Bible College, a game in which they led by two goals. Next on the schedule was Northeast Christian, a game in which everyone played well. The defense of Jeff Brun, who scored the final goal of the game, Sulamon Allyn, Tony Ciro, Chris Collins and the goaltending of Steve Brown totally shut down

Northeast Christian's offense. The precise passing of halfbacks Dan Ross, Fred Toroni and Paul Breslin was largely responsible for Tom DeMatteis scoring four goals and Dave Oswinkle and Jim Vail adding one each. With this win under their belts, the team anxiously awaited the Oct. 14 game against Penn State Capital. However, Capital was unable to play the game due to injuries and the Cavaliers had to settle for a forfeit victory. Williamson then brought the team back down by shutting them out 5-0on Oct. 16. This loss brought Cabrini's record to 3-5-2.However, they showed that they can bounce back, for the next day they battled Delaware County Community College to a 2-2 tie in a non-league game. The soccer team is now hoping for a successful trip to Virginia where they will play Longwood College and Virginia Commonwealth College this weekend.

Frosh are aid to cross country BY ANN BELSKY

Along with the two returning cross country runners are three hard-working freshmen: Jim Weber, Tom Schultz, and Joe Miller. Weber has clocked many miles in high school running sports. He was a four-year member of the track team, ran two years on the cross country team and has endured several 26.2 mile marathon runs. This year, Weber plans to run in the Philadelphia Marathon. This is a newly organized race with rookies as well as die-hard veterans competing for top honors. Freshman Tom Schultz is participating in his first team sport since junior high. This is his first year ever in a running sport. He became involved in cross country at Cabrini because of the lack of

participation from fellow students. Schultz enjoys the running; it "builds body, mind, and character." His first five-mile course was basically an endurance test. "I run against myself. I just try to beat my last time," Schultz said, "It's 90 per cent mental and 10 per cent physical." Another team member, Joe Miller, ran for three years on his high school track team. He said he expected more competition to become a member of a college cross country team and was surprised at the disinterest displayed by upperclassmen. "We're a mean group of guys. We're trying our best," Miller said. He has reduced his running time by a colossal 15 minutes and is striving to cut his time still further.

Lori DiMeglio, '85, agrees with Greenwood's description, calling Heffernan "everybody's best friend. She helps everyone who has a problem." Heffernan describes field hockey as a very intensive sport which requires aggression a nd an ability to shake off injuries . Heffernan knows what it feels like to play a game in spite of an injury. In one game, she received a black eye when a ball rolled up her stick as she attempted to block an opponent's .shot. "We lost that game but at least they didn't score with that shot," Heffernan said. Heffernan considers Cabrini's field hockey team to be very unified despite the diverse personalities of the players. She said the players come from different classes and different residences at~that these differences create a

asset to team that gets its point across BY KARYN RINALDI

Dart throwing is a game of skill that originated in England and was first brought to the colonies by the Pilgrims. It has never become very popular in the United States. Bullet-shaped objects, traditionally made of metal or weighted wood, with features on end, are thrown at dartboards to score points.


New Sport The dartboard is circular and is made of cork, bristle, or wood. It is about 18 inches in diameter and is divided into 20 equal sectors radiat ing from the center . These sectors are valued from 1 to 20 points . There are also rings which indicate double or triple scores . The "bull'seye" is a small ring in the center of the board worth 50 points . The surrounding ring is worth 25 points. A narrow ring at the end of the board indicates " no score ." A complete game can be for a specific number of points or for an agreed period of time.

Hockey featured at Homecoming BYRITAMcKELVEY

Cabrini lost the homecoming 2--0, but Greenwood was not dis-

couraged. "The game was our best played game . We played hard and intense," Greenwood said . Cabrini's record is 2-6-1 . Greenwood feels that the team has improved much over last year .

Dart games were never thoroughly organized. The rules issued by the London Darts Club are generally accepted in national competition. The basic rules include the following: 1. The dartboard should be fixed to a wall with the bull 's-eye five feet eight in, ches from the floor . 2. The length of the throw should be approximately nine feet with the player standing behind a toe line in front of the board . 3. Only those darts ac tually sticking to the board will score . Scoring is according to the value indicated on the sector or circle depending where it lands. 4. To decide which player throws first , a coin may be tossed or one player from each side should throw one dart as near as possible to the bull's-eye . Other popular dart game s include Round the Clock, !ilanghai , Oxo, Cricket, and Shove Ha ' Penny . So , in your spare time, get to your nearest dart board and enjoy a game .
