Vandalism plagues campus BY TOM DeMATTEIS
Behind all the excitement and glamour of the opening of the George D. Widener Campus Center there is a negative aspect vandalism. Within the first month of the opening of the center the game room has had to be closed to clean black scuff marks up off the floor, a $75 headphone set has been stolen and the art woks of alumni Eileen Slattery, Kitsy and Louise Humes and Loi Bullock on the walls of the now deserted first floor of Sacred Heart Hall have been damaged. Director of Student Activities, Marcy Nadel, is concerned about the increasing vandalism. Nadel believes that the game room floor may have started innocently enough playing ping pong. However, when the players saw the marks their shoes were making on the floor they drug their heels in circles around both the pool and ping pong tables. "We had to close the game room down while maintenance stripped the wax off the floor to get the marks out," Nadel said "I can understand some scuff marks but.. .. " Nadel also said she is having trouble keeping up with the equipment in the game room. Pool stick tips and ping pong balls are breaking and no one is telling her so that she can replace them. "If the felt gets ripped on the pool table, the whole table will be replaced with a coin operated one," she said . Nadel said, "I do not want to be a policeperson. The students
taken from the Communications Center, Dr. Jerome Zurek, chairperson of the English and communications department, has no idea how they were stolen. However, other than a sign being ripped down, no other vandalism has taken place in the new center . "The students realize this is for them." Zurek said .
Vandals marred the artwork of alumna Eileen Slattery, '8lhin the hallways of Sacred Heart Hall in the basement near the lockerrooms. Both er tennis mural and her basketball mural were destroyed when someone kicked in the wall. Student Activities Director Marcy Nadel said of the vandalism, "It makes me unhappy to think that nothing is sacred around here." (Photos by Tom DeMatteis) have to police each other . We can scream until we are blue in the face but what we need is the peer pressure ." Nadel also reported that the toilets used during dances have been stuffed with toilet paper and tape marks have been made on
the freshly painted walls in the center. Nadel said the bills for "the marks on the walls will have to be paid by the students through SGA if they keep up and if anyone is caught damaging equipment they win receive a bill for repairs.
Cabrini increases tuition
"There is no excuse for the vandalism in Sacred Heart," Nadel said. "It looks bad for incoming students and visiting sports teams. It makes me unhappy to think nothing is sacred around here," she said. As for the $75set of headphones

The Cabrini College Boad of Trustees voted unanimously to increase tuition for the 1982-83 school year by 10 per cent. Aceording to Sister Mary Louise Sullivan, MSC, president, the decision was made March 12 at a special board meeting to renew finances and approve the operating budget for 1982-83. Sullivan said, "In the inflationary spiral we're in, it's a foregone conclusion that there will be increases." She added, "Our main concern was that, as a school, we do not want to price ourselves out of the market." Room and board will also be increased by 12.8 per cent . Students will pay an additional $175 in tuition per semester and residents will pay $150 more per semester in room and board.

Zurek explained that the Com. munications Center .is kept locked and alarmed as much as possible but when it is open on nights and weekends work gr~nt students are on duty to keep a watch over the equipment. However, if any serious damage is done to the center, Zurek said he would not hesitate to bring in the police. Another area on campus that has been hit lately is the theater. Daniel Perna, the director of the theater program, reported several pieces of equipment stolen over the Christmas break . Among them were theater lights, an electric organ and tape recorders. Perna said, "We need these things and work hard for them . I wish people would realize these things are good for the whole school." Perna said that the proper sources have been altered so that no more theft will occur. "It is getting to the point, " Perna said, "that I am afraid to put my false teeth out in fear that someone might take them for the gold."

Not all area Catholic colleges have determined what their increases will be yet.
Currently, tuition is $3500per year, rising to $3850 next semester with room and board jumping from its current $2350to $2650. According to Sullivan, there will also be additional "minor" increases, including a $15 increase in general fees and a $25 late fee, as well as an 18 per cent increase in late tuition payments . Sullivan explained that the last increase was proposed to discourage students who pay late in order to invest their money and collect interest at the school's expense. Sullivan emphasized the fact that more students means more revenue. "If we don't realize the anticipated amount of students, it means we will not be able to afford some of the additional items the school would like to Continued on Page 4
What do you think
about Liberal Arts in
Vandals: no' iustification The way to distinguish between an animal and a man is by measuring their reasoning capabilities and size of his brain. Supposedly, man is able to understand the difference between right and wrong and to act in accordance with that. Natually this distinction between these two opposite ends may vary depending upon social upbringing. But certain things are consistent transculturally.
FRIDAY, APRIL 2, 1982
The vandalism which recently occurred in Sacred Heart Hall to the walls, some of that space being occupied by art projects of last years seniors, is animalistic behavior which shows a total disregard for the belongings of others. No one with any sense of common decency could do such a thing .
One such thing is respect for anything belonging to others. This category includes stealing and the physical destruction of property that is not your own. There is no justification for either one of these . Each one means the loss -of something important to someone else.
The people who are the culprits behind the vandalism are unknown. Hopefully it is no one from our own institution. Sometimes there is a fine line between fun and aestruction whereby it could be argued equally for either side depending upon how much of a conscience one has. Yet, what occurred in Sacred Heart Hall is clearly malicious.
When one buys something with money that is hard-earned, it is emotionally upsetting if that thing is stolen or destroyed. Yet even worse than this is the demolition of an object made by a person to whom it meant a great deal. Not only is this a tangible destruction but it also could be a psychological one as well.
It is the responsibility of each Cabrini student to be on the lookout for vandals. When something is destroyed, it is our tuition that pays for its repair. Do we want to pay for the stupidity of others? We are a part of the school, and anything being hurt on the school's property is in turn, hurting us.
the Business program? Reporter Karen Angeli and photographer David Milhorn asked campus members : Do you think a liberal arts education enhancs a business program?
Howard Buzzard, assistant pro• fessor of business administration: A business major combined with general education is a partnership in education. You get the benefit of a liberal arts reflected in the background of the business student.
Edward C. Christ, assistant professor of business administration: Yes, it is indispensable. Personally, I feel there is a need for a broad-based education . Other col leges give a heavy concentration in business as well as the liberal arts background .
John E. Remley, lecturer in business administration: Yes , I definitely think business majors need the required liberal arts to be well-rounded . Contrary to popular opinion, they do not have tunnel vision .
Tuition increases bound to happen In the recent presidential newsletter, it was announced that tuition would be increasing by 10per cent in the coming school year. Many were upset upon hearing about the tuition being raised, especially since the cuts for student loans are pending in Congress. Some students wonder where they will get the money, others realize that they will have to dropout and work for awhile. Yet as difficult as it may be for some to get up the money to implement these increases, it is a necessary evil that must be faced by every student across the nation. Although we do not have to condone the yearly increments, we must accept them as the price we must pay for receiving a good education. Currently, Cabrini's tuition is $3,500 and room and board is $2,350. Next year tuition will be $3,850and room and board will be 2,650.As it stands, Cabrini ranks fifth among 11 area Catholic colleges for highest tuition and room and board, a position if has maintained for the past 10 years. In other words, these other area colleges will probably increasing their respective tuition by a similar percentage. The college is not merely increasing •
the tuition and room and board for the sake of putting a burden on the students. Rather, it is to meet the rising costs of maintenance of the grounds and buildings, and budgets for departments. The increase in tuition was inevitable. It was a matter of how much it would be raised, not if it would be raised. Cabrini is not the only institution that found it necessary to do this. So what does this mean to the student in view of the loan cuts? It means students might have to work a little harder and spend a little less. Some money that should be put toward education is used as beer money on weekends, and in the summer, this is often times extended into the week. Perhaps, students should reevaluate the purpose of going to college. The only solution, if there is any, to the problem of getting money for school is to tighten our belts on the bloating economy. Idealistically, we don't think tuition should have been increased after the 14percent increase last year. However when we look at the situation realistically, it was bound to happen.
Carol Hecht Serotta, lecturer in education and mathematics: I certainly do. Nobody should be limited from the onset. You still have to know how to converse, think and talk, therefore you can't narrow your horizons .

During the next academic school year, two Cabrini faculty members will be going on sabbatical. Gerald Satlow , assistant professor of Mathematics and coordinator of the computer program, and Kathleen M. Daley, associate professor of social science will be studying varios aspects of their respective fields . During the fall of 1982-83, Satlow will be going to school and studying selected computer sci ence courses. Several of the courses that Satlow will be taking
based management and assembly language. . Not only will Satlow be a student in the classroom but also be a student in the field. " I hope to visit computer firms for several days and observe how they operate," Satlow said . Satlow's sabbatical will benefit Cabrini College in that he will be qualified to teach new aspects of computers . Computer courses at Cabrini have doubled enrollment every year for the last four to five years. All those students enrolled in
have to worry about a replacement for Satlow . "There will be someone to take my place," Satlow said, "There could possibly be more than one person." However, Satlow added that it would be difficult to get people to teach computer science because there is more money to be made in computer work than in teaching . During the spring semester of 1982-83, Dr . Daley will be going to Rome for her sabbatical. She will be researching the educational
President visits Jerusalem BY PAM CLARK
St. Mary Louise Sullivan, M.S.C., president of Cabrini College, recently attended a meeting of the International Federation of Catholic Universitiesin Jerusalem . The purpose of the meeting was to discuss business within the organization , but Sullivan · got a much keeper meaning from the journey. She was deeply affected by what she saw while in the Middle East. Tensions have captured the attention of the world and Sullivan was an eyewitnes to the unrest. "I came back with many questions about the Palestinians," she stated . "My eyes were opened to the plight of these people and I want to do more reading and talking about them. I think it's time to look at thefr needs." She added that her trip gave her both a positive and a negative perspective of the tentions in the Middle East and made her very aware of the potential for armed conflict. The conference took place in the Ecumenical Institute for Theological Research in Tantur, Jerusalem. The institute is owned by the Vatican and run by Notre Dame University which is in South Bend, Indiana. Sullivan
was elected one of 10 councillors worldwide at a meeting in the summer of 1980. The council meets once every year with a General Assembly every three years. One of the main purposes of the conference was to plan the next General Assembly, which is to be held in 1983 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Sullivan is hoping that students from the United States and Canada will be able to attend the assemly as delegates. She stated that the organization has sent letters to schools, asking them to join. "We'd like each college to bring a delegation that would include students," she said. "I'd like to see a delegation from Cabrini go up." The conference also discussed finances and the possibility of publishing the panels and discussions from the 1980 general assembly. Sullivan herself categorized the workshops to be conducted by the organization in 1983. She prepared a questionnaire for member colleges and univerities, took their suggestions and worked them into an outline of workshops to be held at the assembly . She related that the organiza-
tion was concerned for its Polish members . She stated that three Polish universities belong to the IFCU and their rectors haven't been heard from since late 1981. The organization wrote to offer its help but received no answer . "We did learn one thing - that students from Western European universities were giving up their weekends to take food into Poland ," Sullivan said . Sullivan was able to spend the last 1½ days sightseeing. She visited Galilee, Nazareth, Cana , the Mount of Beautitudes, and the little towns around the Sea of Galilee where Jesus Christ preached. " The Sea of Galilee was the most beautiful," she said. "I brought back some pebbles ." The council members were also guests for lunch at Bethlehem University and the Ecole Biblique et Archeologique Francaise De Jerusalem, where the Jerusalem Bible was written. Sullivan stated that she enjoys working with the IFCU "very much. I've learned so much in the past three years." She will serve with the organization until 1983 and could be reelected as a past president of a Catholic College. "It depends on my assignment," she stated. ·
rule of Italy . Also, incorporated in this research will be how the · educational institutions take on the religious and political values of the people. Daley will not be doing all of this research alone ; her husband will also be researching the historical background of Italy under the Fascist rule . She added, "Upon completion of the research, we hope to publish a paper from our work." According to Daley , all social science majors were asked to
take required courses this semester, because of her absence. "We requested in the budget to have someone as a re placement ," Daley said. Also, she stated that the re placement would offer various electives, for example in courses such as Urban Sociology or Medical Sociology. Daley has expressed an interest in taking a Cabrini student interested in improving Italian and learning Italian culture with her family on sabbatical.
Oristaglio and Nicoletti release admission stats BY SANDRA McNAMARA
As June rolls by, hundreds of high school seniors wait anxiously for final say upon their college admission. To date Cabrini College's admissions office has been working steadily to see that some of these seniors will become college freshmen . As of March 19, 1982 the admissions office has 350 freshmen application with 280 approved applicants. These figures are from Estelle Oristaglio, director of admissions. In order to be considered for admission a student must submit an application with a non-refundable $20 fee . An official high school transcript, SAT scores, a recommendation must accompany the application. Each application is reviewed and a decision is made, approved or not approved. The student is notified by mail of the decision. The decisions on who is to be admitted is made by the admissions committee who meets regularly. Candidates for the freshmen class honors program will be contacted by mail next week. The number of freshmen in the honors
course will not be known, but about 20 freshmen will participate. Most of the students with applications to date are from the eastern United States with a heavy concentration from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York . Also applications from students from Delaware, Florida and Maryland have been received. Oristaglio commented also that "almost without exception prospective students are impressed with our campus and facilities . Particularly attractive to students are the resident houses and the Widener Campus Center. According to Gus Nicoletti, director of resident life, "80 to 85 per cent of the students that have applied, have applied for housing. 88 per cent of the males that have applied, have applied for housing." Nicoletti also mentioned that Woodcrest will remain a underclassmen domitory, with space for 15 other students who would like to live there. He feels that this is a good move because, "It gives freshmen a chance to see how they adapt, how they relate and they are under supervision ."

• Off ice rs attempt to revive, rename club BY TAMRADIMARINO Poor club attendance has ca used the officers of the International Club to begin attempts to revive it, according to Sal Mastrangelo, president. Mastrangelo took over the job as president of the club "about a month ago" and appointed three other students to be officers . The other officers are Maria Nickels, vice president; Charlie Gracie, secretary and Jeff Fronzi, treasurer. According to Mastrangelo, Lourdes Latorre, the past presi-

Mastrangelo was the vice president so he moved up into the president's position "We tried to have elections," he said, but this didn't succeed because "attendance in the club was poor." Presidently there are 40 members in the club, but not all are actively involved. "Our main goal is to get attendance up in the meeting" and to get people interested, Mastrangelo said. We want to make it possible for people "io have a good time," he said, "but don't want the mem-

The purpose of the International Club is to "increase cultural awareness and develop an appreciation of various cultures," according to the 1981-82 Student Handbook. If the name of the club is changed, the constitution will be changed, according to Mastrangelo. This is scheduled to be done in Fall 1982. The club has made plans for a

He thinks that the new name would be appropriate because it "is the meaning of the whole club ." By changing the name Mastrangelo feels that the "face" of the club would be changed. Mastrangelo feels that many people still have the idea that the International Club is the same as

The liberal arts and business administration programs can · combine to form a successful partnership for the betterment of the students. Howard Buzzard, chairperson of the business administration department, said, "Students don't have to give up liberal arts desires to be in the business major. They can have the best of both worlds: opportunity, authority, job satisfaction and finacial reward. "Business is the new fish in the pond, but there is no need for anyone to feel threatened by its presence ." Buzzard said, "Cabrini is a liberal arts -college so business graduates must have the libe.ral arts background plus the required bu~iness progr~~ to increse the~r market~bihty _.

Buzzard said the liberal arts student could pursue an M.B.A. degree in graduate school, enter business and do well. The internship progam here sets Cabrini business students apart at graduation . Buzzard said the program provides experience and contacts with companies that give the extra edge in job opportunities. Many students obtain jobs at their internship employment. Buzzard and Christ are opposed to adding business courses to the GER. Buzzard said students should take business because they want it . Besides, Christ said, any student can choose business courses as electives, a double major or a minor. Chris pointed out that many school's have added the humanities to their technical progams to broaden students' horizons. Buzzard -foresees the business administration program growing in terms of an increase in students enrolled . The programs , however, will remain static at this time although options will exist for conc£:ntrations in markeing, finance and economies. Buzzarc!.said the business program at Cabrini is very competitive with colleges of similar size and more competitive with some materiall y larger schools . He said , "Our program is intense with a rich liberal arts core ." Christ said "I like to think Cabrini is sup~rior ." He said, "It is a better integrated program than most as all departments relate to each other and we all use this information to advise students." Both men said the personal relationships of faculty and students help everyone . Buzzard said two problems exist for his department. First, the smallness . of Cabrini provides less course availability although courses are rotated.

In a poll taken of 11area Catholic colleges, Cabrini ranks fifth highest as far as tuition and room and board are concerned, a position it has maintained for the past 10 years.

But she's never too busy to shOre a smile BY DANNY ROSS Is Ellen Lavelle a busy woman? Just try and get an interview with her and you will find it is probably easier to get tickets to a sold-out Phillies game than to find her in her room . This reporter tried three times without success to get an interview. And then finally a time was set. We would talk after mass on Sunday. I thought I finally had her trapped, but there she was up on the altar doing her duty as Eucharistic Minister . What could possibly go wrong? Well, I guess I should have knocked on wood because as that last thought raced through my mind Ellen raced off the altar and out the front door of the church. I was later to find out that Ellen had to take care of someone who had fainted. She happens to be a medical assistant and duty had called while she was on the altar . When Ellen isn't on Cabrini's campus she can be found in her hometown, Scranton. There, during the summer, she works as a
lifeguard, a job she has been doing for a few years. "One of these days I have to get a real job," she said. Ellen enjoys jogging and swimming and has a kind of glow about her. She reminds me of the type of person that always has a smile on her face even though she may have three tests in one day and only two hours to study for them. Ellen said she picked Cabrini because she liked the people and the area and because she felt she could become involved here. And become involved is exactly what she has done . Among the already mentioned activities of Eucharistic minister and medical assistant, Ellen also is a member of Campus Ministry, a member of Kappa Sigma Omega, the activities chairperson for SGA and on top of all that she works in the cafeteria as a checker. Her job as activities chairperson is basically helping in the planning of activities sponsored by SGA. She also helps to organize the committees that run the SGA activities .
Bless the beast and/or
Over spring vacation when all the rest of Cabrini campus went to Florida or home, Ellen visited neither. Instead she went to Virginia with the Campus Ministry to work with the people of Appalachia. "We were afraid at first," she said, "but when we got there our living conditions were not as bad as we had predicted." She said the trip seemed to be a success and that she had enjoyed herself . Well, after talking to Ellen for about half an hour I got to thinking about whether her roommate ever got a chance to see her . So I asked Sheila Fanelle what life was like with Ellen. "Surpisingly, Ellen really is around a lot," she said. "'It's just that you picked a bad week." She said Ellen is a very thoughtful person and pretty easy to live with . Ellen is obviously very interested in the students at Cabrini. She is also interested in the development of Cabrini. If that's not enough , she has a nice smile and she is fun to talk to.
Kids say the darndest things BY JEANNE PROKO Don't you love kids? Don't they say the darndest things: •Hey fatso! You'll never fit through the door. •Who could ever like you? You're too skinny. •Hey, train tracks! Didja know your teeth stick out? •Boy, are you ugly! •Cross-eyes, cross-eyes, you got cross-eyes. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha ... I bet you can tell that I'm not an early childhood education major . I really don't hate kids . Just because I believe in a program called "Rent-A-Kid," where you can entertain a kid for a weekend and then send it home, doesn't mean I don't like the lil' beasties. Look, I'm involved in children's theater . How can I not like kids Just because I might step on the feet of those who talk through the show, doesn't mean I don't like them. Sounds like I'm defending myself, doesn't it? Hmmm . Well, maybe I am, a little. I just don't like the ones who are obnoxiously loud, rude, pushy, nasty or otherwise known as "spoiled brats." I can't help it, though. I don't define all children as little darlings or angels sent from heaven. Those little darlings are usually

the ones who torment and harass other little kids by calling them horrible little nicknames. I don't find that cute and adorable; nor do I find it excusable. Childhood taunting, in my opinion, is one of the most devastating events to a child. It can shatter their self-esteem and cause selfdoubt in their eyes . And what can you say, as a parent, that could possibly appease the rage and humilitation that they are feeling inside. The damage has been done. Experts agree that a child's feelings of self-esteem are the key to well-being and to the development into a mature and productive adult. According to Dr. M.L. Corbin Sicoli, assistant professor in special education and psychology, the self-concept is most important for the later childhood years. At this age, your picture of yourself is based on your peers' impression. However, something must be done so that the child won't grow up filled with self-pity. Believe me, there is nothing worse for a child's psyche than the feeling that they are to be pitied because they're skinny or fat or have buck-teeth. Sicoli says that by simply changing the environment that the child plays in and goes to school in can affect how a child

reacts. If the child has friends in another area (such as music, dance, sports) this can get him away from the cruelty, and therefore, he won't be at the mercy of another's taunting. Sicoli feels that a quiet child seems to be the type most often taunted. She suggested assertiveness training, so that the taunting "doesn 't become internalized." In this way, the child won't believe it anymore. The reason for taunting, Sicoli suggested, is for a want of social power. It's also a possibility that those children who taunt often are abused themselves. Sicoli commented that boys are usually the taunters more so than girls. Some children tend to assume that others may know more than they, and because of this thought, they 'll believe whatever is told to them. If a child is often told that he/ she is dumb , ugly, awkward, whatever, he / she is going to believe it. Therefore, if a child is taunted often, feelings will show that he/ she is of no worth. I really don't dislike children. Actually, I feel so much for those who are hurt by others. Growing up is painful. Nobody needs to be reminded of their faults; we're all aware of our own faults, without others adding on to them. Watch, ten years from now, I'll have five children-all boys . God Bless me.

Space for thinking BY FRANCINE KUTERBACH Imagine a quiet place isolated from the rigors of daily life. Picture a huge house situated In a bay with miles of shimmering blue water in the front and acres of quiet forest in the back. This fantasy became reality for the students and faculty who chose to participate in the retreat sponsored by Campus Ministry. The retreat was scheduled to be held March 26, 27 and 28. Barbara Henkels, member of the board of trustees, and her bus• band Paul agreed to let the Cabrini students use their spacious summer home located on the Chesapeake Bay In Aurback, Maryland, as the site of the reteat. Chris Davis, Chaplain, said "The home is an ideal retreat place." The house is located on a shipping line and boats sail throughout the day and deer roam about at night," Chris said, "It's less 'set up' than places like Malvern and gives people space for think• ing." Thinking is just one part of what a retreat is. A newsletter put out by the Campus Ministry office said, "Student retreats are the best way to preserve the faith in a complicated world." Father Chris feels a retreat ls a time to discover things about himself that a person normally wouldn't have time to reflect on. He said those on retreat should ask themselves important questions like: Is this what I want to
do with my life? or Is this what God wants me to do? Daily mass, a prayer service, confessions and time for discussion sessions were scheduled. Tracey Valentine, '85, who helped coordinate the retreat said the topics of discussion were marriage and peer pressure. Two couples, Including Valentine's parents, were scheduled to speak about their marriage. Regina Shields, '84, sees value in these discussions. When asked the difference between a retreat and a vacation, Shields said, "On a retreat you're there to talk to God and be close to him. On vacation, you pack up and leave God _behind." Valentine agrees and went on to say that retreat should be an uplifting experience. "On retreat you get to know yourself and get a different perspective on life. Each individual should get something different out of a retreat, pertaining to their own life." Mark Magner, '85, is also scheduled to go on the retreat. He feels a retreat is a time to relax and talk about subjects that one normally doesn't have time to talk about. "On retreat, people find out that their friends have the same problems they do. There may not be a solution, but at least they can talk with each other." Magner went on to say that retreats are a good way to make friends and "get to know youself better."

Spring break, a time of discovery BY KATE CONNOLLY AND DEBBIE JABWNSKI
What did you do during Spring Break 1982? Did the waves beat upon your feet? Were you a "sun worshipper"? Did you visit relatives at home and sleep late? Well, some of the campus community were pioneers and were digging ditches, weatherizing homes and visiting the elderly. This might not be a first choice when deciding what to do on your vacation but to this group it proved to be a week of learning, helping and enjoyment. Alarms began to ring at 4 a.m. on Sunday, March 7. An hour later, 14 Cabriniites ventured to Âˇ travel to the Appalachian Mountains in W. Va. This volunteer group consisted of Sr. Bernadette Casiano, MSC; Mike Gimpel, junior; Lee Caishion, junior; Regina O'Leary, senior; Ellen Lavelle, sophomore; Sue Rerich, freshman; Toni Lo, sophomore; Debbie Jablonski, junior; David Murphy, senior; Terri Leinenback, junior; Kate Connolly, junior; Stan Ianierei, junior; and Stacey Schroepfer, sophomore. In order to prepare for project Appalachia, various activities and meetings were held. The main concern for the group was to raise $700 in less than a month. A Sunday cake sale, a Campus Ministry ice cream extravaganza and a showing of "Oliver" were several ways the Appalachia Outeach Group raised the expense money. Not to be forgotten were the many generous donations Âˇ from avid supporters. Other preparations for the project were special meetings with Carter Craigie, professor of social science, Sr. Caroline , chairperson of the Religion department of Notre Dame Academy, and Jerry Bloemker.These meetings were to orient the group with the different aspects of the region that they needed to know. Craigie discussed some of the geography and resources that were in the mountains. Also, he explained about the mountain people and their life style. Sr. Caroline and Bloemker,
shared with the group their experiences they encountered when they participated in Project Appalachia. Emphasis was placed on the church in Appalachia and its mission in the Mountains. One of the final and probably most important elements in the preparation process were the Wednesdy night discussions about what the project was, what was expected from the participants and by the participants and the sharing of anxieties and expectations. Various articles about Appalachia, its people, its resources, the church and government involvement and attitudes were read and discussed. Also discussed by the group were some of their expectations and anxieties. Most of the 14 participants feared the same thing, non-acceptance. Toni Lo, sophomore, stated that she was expecting bad living conditions and hostile people who would not accept her and the group. Also she said that being in...a place tha_t had no el~ctricity Scenic views of the Appalachian -countryside belie the harshness of the material poverty.

Two pairs of pants ... two pairs of socks ... one pair of warm boots ... one pair of underwear ... One pair of Underwear! ! This was but one of the familiar cries emitted from anxietyridden Appalachian pioneers prior to Spring Break. Upon departure, we knew very little about what to expect beyond what we had read and had been told during our orientation sessions . One thing was certain, they emphasized rustic living conditions; no running water, no heat, no indoor facilitis. As it turned out, we were blessed with the first of many rays of sunshine . MaryJane O'Riely, a happy and smiling Irish woman, welcomed us to her large attic with its five beds. In comparison to earlier expectations, the one bathroom shared among us was a blessing. As she introduced us to her "children,"
Razzle Rathbone, a blind miniterrior, and Rodney Doolittle, a voiceless dachsund, our anxieties diminished. We were soon informed that this was the first time Mrs. O'Riely had ever housed a group traveling in our capacity (Catholic, that is). "You were the first volunteers that weren't passionists," O'Riley said . She stated that she never saw so many young people get along so well. "In the past, there was usually some who didn't fit in," O'Riley said. She added, "It makes me feel hopeful that there are peole like you. It is unfortunate that all your hear about is the bad now-adays." Mary Jane is very active in her church activities. She teaches C.C.D. and is a member of the
liturgical and Lay ministry committees. Also, she delivers the Eucharist to home-bound parishioners . Debbie Jablonski, junioir, said, "She generously gave free run of her home without even knowing us."
Jablonski added, "For all she knew we were strangers who were just college students. Also, she was there if we had a problem during the day which gave us a secure feeling." Toni Lo, sophomore, said, "We instantly and unanimously acclaimed her our foster mother for the week ." One the day we said our goodbye, MaryJane distributed theEucharist to everyone in the group. All the group agreed with junior Kate Connolly when she said, "It really got to you . She'll be our fondest memory of Appalachia '82."

Expect the unexpected at any time BY TAMRA DIMARINO
Yes, it could have happened to anybody. And several odd things did happen to the Cabrini College Appalachian team. For example: •When it was her turn to drive the van, Debbie Jablonski , jun ior , arrived at the West Virginia Hilton safely, but then locked the keys inside. Dave Murphy,senior , came to the rescue when he opened the van with a hanger . •Stan lanierei, junior, had a run-in with a barbed wire fence and had some trouble getting out. Also, while at his worksite one day, he caught his coat on fire with a piece of equipment he was using . •Terri Leinenbach, junior, dug a 90 foot ditch as one of her projects during the week. •Regina O'Leary, senior, and Jablonski rolled large, flat rocks down a hill during a day at their worksite. •Tony Lo, sophomore, sat on a cactus while she was washing
green house windows. Also, she accidentally stepped on the end of a rake while walking . The rake replied by hitting her in the back. •And an event that will surely be remembered by the entire Ap• palachian team is roof dancing taught by Mike Gimpel, junior . This special dance was taught on the way home and can only be done in one certain place - on the roof of a van, of course. other events that will surely be remembered include : •The square dance which the pioneers were asked to leave in a somewhat odd fashion. A Hinton resident commented that the "young people" were making too much noise for the · people with hearing aids, so the group de• cided to leave . They followed by having their own square dance Cabrini style . •In New York, they've passed special laws to clean up the dog litter; Sr. Bernadette Casciano, MSC was given this honorary job in Hinton .
Planning proiect time consuming BY DEBBIE JABLONSKI
Recently, 14 Cabrini students participated in an outreach program in the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia. According to Sr . Bernadette Casiano , MSC, the program is designed to give young adults of college age an opportunity to experience "mission" by building a Christian Community in the group and reaching out to share with the local people of Appalachia . "For out-reach work," Casciano said, "the group is divided into smaller units and goes out on pre-arranged work details.'' Many of these "work details" which the students participated in i!Onsisted of weatherizing houses and visits to the elderly . The Appalachan Outreach Group did not work alone in their service efforts . Representatives from the Catholic Cornunity Services of Mercer County, W.Va. organized living conditions and some of the work details.
The Community Services of Mercer County set the basic groundwC'rk for the project. "Ellen Lavelle was the primary organizer behind the project," Kate Connolly, junior , said . When the group arrived in Hinton, W.Va. they were sent to the Senior Center in the town. This center became the focal point of all outreach assignments for the following week . After receiving assignments the group was broken down into teams to complete the tasks, After working through the day, the teams arrived back at their assigned living quarters. The entire group shared an attic of a local parish woman's home. The outreach program did not stop when the daily work routine ended. The group members shared on-the-job experiences and learned about personal experiences of the appalachian people. At the end of the day, the Pioneers gathered for a quiet
prayer service . This time allowed the members of the group , think ing time. They could recall all events that happened during the day and how each event affected them . Project Appalachia became an internal renewal for those Cabrinities who participated in the program . " Friendship flourished within the group," Connolly said, "be cause of a working relationship with each other." It became a time of self-evaluation. Individuals in the group could now evaluate what their priorities are and how they could simplify their life.
Casciamo stated that because of the planning sessions before the adventure and the nightly prayer services, the group has been invited back into the outreach program next year. ,

"She iust stared at the pills 1n her hand." BY SANDRA McNAMARA
IT BEGINS: A call from your friend. "I'm nearing the end." IT PROGRESSES: A crisis period where your friend feels anger, guilt and a desire to escape. IT ENDS: You get a phone call, your friend has committed suicide . Suicide to date has been a taboo subject. People are unwilling to discuss it partly because they are scared and partly because they don't understand what happens when someone does attempt suicide. Furthermore, because there is such a stigma that goes along with suicide, many suicides go unrecorded. Among the high statistics of suicide (27.4% for men and 6.4% for women) comes an ever rising suicide rate among college-age students. These statistics are from the National Center for Health Statistics and are rising from year to year. The motives for suicide are almost as many as there are the
suicide is often distraught, upset or depressed, that person would not have been diagnosed as mentally ill. Today many physicians and educators are seriously concerned with the any instances of self-destruction and attempts at suicide among college students . Many times a student may not know how to deal with a friend's attempted suicide, or even suicidal games. Pam Clark, '84 states, "She actually said she picked up glass and tried to slit her wrist, but the glass wasn't sharp enough, then she poured a whole bottle of pills into her hand and just stared at them. I was in shock. I felt helpless and scared when she told
number of suicides . Things such as fear, hatred, inferiority and disappointment are enough to push the already suicidal person over the edge . There are many ways to rate a potential suicidal person . For example, if a person is over 45, has tried suicide before, has a poor medical history botti mentally and physically and seems antisocial then that person has a high suicide potential. A shocking fact among all of this is that someone attempts suicide every minute of the day . Three times as many men succeed with the act and women usually try to commit suicide by overdose. All of these facts are clear, but still do not dispel many of the misconceptions that accompany suicide. One large misconception about suicide is that a person who attempts suicide is mentally ill. Although a person who commits

Start the day right BY MAUREEN CARROLL
It is 8: 15 a.m. and your eyes happen to open only to realize you have 15 minutes until class begins . You curse, jump out of bed, throw on a pair of sweats and a shirt and run out the door grabbing your books on the way. During the class you feel like you will fall asleep at any minute. No matter how hard you try your mind is not on the class. Sound familiar? How many times do you go to class in the morning on an empty stomach? By doing this, you could be cutting years off your life. In a recent study done at the University of California, tests showed that people who ate breakfast lived longer than those who did not. The most common reason given for not eating breakfast are not getting up on time, not being able to eat in the morning or just poor eating habits. "You must eat a good breakfast because your stomach is empty," said school nurse Mary Mulligan, R.N. "With all the pressures a student has, you need
Sophomore Rose Battiato, a biology major, eats breakfast almost every day. "It givesyou the energy you need to start the day," she said. Mulligan noted that some after-effects of not eating breakfast are hyperacidity which could result in ulcers, fatigue and nibbling on highly-caloric foods throughout the day. She suggested that some good foods to start your day are fruit, juice, cereal, half a bagel with cream cheese and cottage cheese and fruit . Milk is also important to drink as you become older because your bones get more brittle. "I asked the cafeteria to get rid of some of the sugary cereals," Mlligan said. "It would be better to have just natural cereals. Our salad bar is very helpful at lunch for those on diets ." Mulligan noted that the cafeteria has a good variety of foods from which to choose. " The cafeteria is open to all suggestions," she said.
The Shadow knows BY KAREN CANCIO
As I sat and talked to Sister Maria Pasqualini I learned about her various duties and responsibilities at Cabrini College and as the head resident of the Mansion. Sister Maria was born in Philadelphia and grew up in nearby Conshohocken . She is one of four children and graduated from Conshohocken High School. She went on to attend one year at Fordham University. Sister Maria says, "I always went to a public school and always intended on getting married and settling down; but after speaking with a priest I knew I wanted to become a nun." Sister Maria taught the first grade to students in Brooklyn, N.Y., and in Scranton, Pa. In between she worked in an admitting office in a hospital in Chicago. Sister Maria has also worked

Some important things to remember are: •A suicidal person will leave clues about their suicide about 30 days before they do it. •Every suicidal threat must be taken seriously. •Talk to your friend. Let them know that it is fine to feel unhappy and depressed and that it is not the end of the world. •Last and foremost , find pofessional help for your friend. Many times they themselves will seek help but not all the time . Suicide prevention centers provide around-the-clock help on the telephone aimed at immediate crisis intervention . To these cen-

She stayed on at Cabrini until 1973 and it is during this time the name "Shadow" was first coined.

Smokers-- go kiss an a~htray BY SANDY MOMYER
The American Cancer Society estimates 111,000deaths will result from lung cancer in 1982. Eighty-five percent of those deaths could be avoided by nonsmoking. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop said in his recent report, "Cigarette smoking is clearly identified as the chief preventable cause of death in our society and the most important public health issue of our time." Koop said, "Tobacco use accounts for approximately 340,000 deaths in the United States annually from cancer as well as heart disease and chronic lung and respiratory disease . Maternal smoking can result in miscarriages, premature births and birth defects." He also said that evidence raises a concern for damage to non-smokers exposed to cigarette smoke . TIME called Koop's statements the most serious indictment yet made on smoking . Reporter Anastasia Toufexis said, "This is the first report to focus on smoking and lung cancer plus other health problems." No plans exist at Cabrini to respond to these findings. Gus Nicoletti, director of resident life, said, "Smoking is an individual matter at this time. The student handbook lists areas for smoking and non-smoking." tor and Superior to the nine Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart. Sister Maria also is responsible for taking care of the Chapel and in charge of the pet dog, Sparky. In her spare time Sister Maria enjoys her crewel work and crocheting Afghan blankets. Sister Maria recently celebrated her 30th anniversry of being a nun. She was also recently appointed to the corporate board of the Santa Cabrini Hospital in Montreal, Canada . The ever present Shadow sees that all is running smoothly in the Mansion with the students and
Nicoletti said that he has had no student reponse to the surgeon general's report. He said if students initiate a concern the matter will be addressed. Nurse Mary Mulligan said that she is most interested in helping students break the smokingh hab it. Although no formal programs exist , Mulligan provides literature for interested students and wages a no smoking campaign each year. It was such a campaign that helped Mulligan break her smoking habit of two packs per day. Mulligan said, "About ten years ago when I campaigned for non-smoking, a student admonished me about not practicing what I preached. She was right and I stopped cold turkey. I'm glad I did ." Anthony T. Tomasco, associate professor of psychology and psychologist at the counseling center, concurs with Nicoletti and Mulligan in that smoking has not presented itself as a problem at Cabrini and the lack of statistics prevents meaningful conclusions. He said, however , that studies have shown that nicotine, which is classified as a drug, creates a physiological as well as psychological dependence to the user. He said, "To maintain a level of saisfaction, more and more of the drug is needed . When the
higher level of intake is tolerated, greater amounts are needed. Also, when the drug is lessened or stopped withdrawal effects occur." Tomasco said the key factor to stop smoking is motivation-do you want to stop. He advises students to try to handle the stoppage with behavior techniques on their own first. If that fails, he recommends formal treatment programs. Counseling could also work, he said . In 1964the government issued its first report on smoking. The warning labels suggesting a health hazard were added to cigarette packages in 1970and in 1971Congress banned the broadcasting of cigarette commercials . Tomasco said that with the new evidence so strongly opposed to smoking, people will still smoke . "Gognitive dissonance rejects or ignores the information and people will find the evidence they need to satisfy themselves with their smoking. This same technique can be applied to other areas of our lives." Dorothy Micale, '85, doesn't smoke and generally has no objections to others smoking. The campus policy suits her . If it does bother her in a group, Micale said she doesn't hesitate to assert herself and either remove herself from the area or ask others to stop smoking .

SGA Notebook 1 ~Il l
,.The Junior class bounces back
~1111 ~~~ ~~~
BY BRIAN P. JENSEN
After being in the red ever since last year 's Sophomore / Senior Farewell, the junior class is back on its feet again and is going strong . According to Carol Hasson, jun ior class president , her class is now " enjoying a healthy bank account " after being in debt to the Student Government Association ever since they borrowed money from the executive board 's ·budget last year. "After holding two ver y successful events this semester , we have money enough to give us a good head start to help finance next year 's Junior /Senior Weekend, " Hasson said . Previously the junior class had been in financial trouble . According to Hasson , the present junior class owed SGA money from Sophomore / Senior Farewell last yea r, and just when they accumulated enough funds to pay back SGA, they fell into debt again after having to borrow more money for the Junior / Senior Weekend held last semester . Hasson explained that she and the other junior class officers , Mar y Beth Grugan , vice president ; Karen Kelly, t reasur er ; Pegg y Heffernan , secretary ; Beannie Feighan , Commuter representative and Jeff Brun , parliamentarian, started their campaign to gain funds as soon as they were elected late last semester . "We got together quickly and planned ways to get out of debt and get the junior class back on the right track," Hasson sai.d. Hasson explained that she and the other class officers started by collecting money from the unpaid sponsors of last semesters Ju1.1,,r/ Faculty basketball . " This gave us enoug!J money to finance the 'Mardi Gras ' dance ." said Hasson .

(Photo by Mark Magner) " After profitting from this event , we had enough money to run the Championship Party which was a great financial success ," Hasson said . Hasson acreditted the present successes of her class to the hard work of the class officers , the help and support of many junior class members , and the fact that the basketball team won the championship . Hasson described the financial situation of her class as presentl y being "com fortable ." " It is a good feeling to know we don't have to make money we can't keep for our class ," Hasson said . In the past , money had not been as large a problem as it seems to presently be for the individual classes . The last two major off campus affairs (both of which the current junior class were involved) have forced the class organizations involved to borrow money from SGA's budget. Last year it was decided that classes pay back these loans . This year , that decision is
currently under careful question . " It is becoming obvious that inflation combined with a larger student population at Cabrini has caused large off campus events to cost much more than what individual classes are capable of making ," Hasson said . Hasson strongly supports current considerations to use SGA funds to eliminate some of the financial burden classes are responsible for meeting . The sophomore class is also currently seeking SGA support to help pay for this year's Sophomore / Senior Farewell . " It is a terrible feeling knowing you are in debt before you even start," Hasson said. Hasson was optimistic however , tha t her class in now on the right road . " We have really bounced back from our financial troubles and I truely hope that no class will ever be in debt again, " Hasson said . Hasson also showed great pleasure in the recent enthusiasm that she feels her
class at large has been showing . She explained that memos were recently sent out thanking the juniors for their support and urging them to continue . with their involvement. Hasson felt that class enthusiasm was on an upswing after criticism early in the semester about jun ior class apathy . "The enthusiasm toward class affairs has really picked up this semester. I think the juniors have proved that they are indeed concerned about the welfare of their class," Hasson said . Hasson went on to explain that committees ha ve been formed to ensure continued class successes . The graduation committee for next year , the Junior/Senior Weekend committee and a committee to or'ganize the dance sponsored by the junior class this month are those that Hasson menti oned . " We want to give every junior a chance to be involved in these committees so all of our events will be planned well ahead of time ," Hasson said . In general , Hasson said she was "very pleased " with the progress her class has made since the election of the present class officers . Vice president , Mary Beth Grugan agreed that class enthusiasm has picked up and that her class has made " great progress ." " The class officers have worked very hard to promote interest from class members and we have gotten a very good response ," Grugan said. When Grugan decided to run for class office she said her main goal was to " shake the reputation of being an apathetic class ." "The lack of juniors that voted and ran in the student elections is a prime example of the lack .of interest our class had, "

As graduation day qt1ickly approaches, seniors are r'!flecting their thoughts on SGA and the contributions of their class. According to Kathleen . Cordilla , senior class president, all who have been SGA officers from the senior class have worked hard over the years initiating fund -raisers and establishing new ideas which have made SGA a more successful organization. "SGA has come a long way since I was a freshman ," said Cordilla who will be completing
her major in business adminis tration . and a minor in com munications by graduation day . " When I look back , I see that people from our class were the ones doing a lot of work and running many campus activities ," Cordilla said . Cordilla has been an involved SGA member for a long time . She has served as social activities chairperson on the executive board as well as being junior and senil)r class president. Cordilla most recently won the SGA award which is given to that

senior who has worked well for SGA but has not been well recog nized for their effort. Cordilla regards the class of 1982 as being an extremely enthusiastic group of students . Senior Dave Murphy, who was ver y involved as freshman , sophomore and junior president of the class of 1982 agrees with Cordilla that his class was a very act ive and enthusiastic student organization . " One thing that always im pressed me about our class was that we were all very involved and we always received a tre mendous response toward our activities. Many class members had helped in all of our events ," Murphy said . . Murphy pointed out that he was " very proud " to be part of his class. Murphy also said that it was his class who first initiated some
of the present popular student activities . " Our class started a series of weekend activities . We beefed up Frida y night dances and it was our class who introduced the carnation sales ," Murphy said . Murphy also gave much credit to senior Theresa Collins, who was commuter representative when Murphy was president. " She made us aware of the prob lems with commuters being unintentionally left out of campus activities, " Murphy said . Murphy felt that Collins was responsible for giving students a" whole new outlook" on the commuters. Theresa Collins went on to become President of the Student Government Association. Both Murphy and Cordilla were pleased with the input they felt their class has given over the past four years .
Cordilla added that although the senior class at this point in their college life have difficulty finding time to participate in social activities , the seniors still have the enthusiasm they once exemplified. " I don 't think we have lost our spirit. To this day our class supports SGA even though we are not physicall y initiating new programs ," Cordilla said . Cordilla did point out that one of her class 's most recent successes is the senior parties that her administration initiated . 'These parties are a privilege that has allowed seniors to have a geat deal of fun, " Cordilla said . Cordilla presently regards the senior class as being in a " winding down" period . " We are all looking forward to Sophomore / Senior Farewell ," Cordilla said. ·

sings her way to stardom BY PAT McDERMOTT

English. (Photo by Elizabeth Kanaras)
As you walk through the halls during the 路 change of classes you're bound to spot her . She catches your eye among everyone else . She wears her hair short and stylish , her clothes are bright, flashy and of high fashion . She's Joanne Norcini. But these few charactristics aren't all that makes her so special, Norcini is gifted with an elegant voice. She began taking voice lessons five years ago when her family realized she was a talented singer.She stopped the voice lessons, however when her mother died and didn't continue until three years later. Norcini felt that there was no purpose in singing without her mother, who was a former semi-professional opera singer . However, in eleventh grade, Norcini had a dream of her mother encouraging her to continue her singing and hopefully making a career of it. Norcini was then accepted into the Bryn Mawr Conservatory of Music. She studied there for a year and a half. She then moved on to West Chester State College under the instruction of Alan Wagner, who once performed here at Cabrini. Norcini has an operatic voice. She can sing in French, German, Italian and English . Her preference, however , is to sing in Italian. She practices an hour a day, a half hour doing vocal exercises,
Casinos battle to attract One type is line buses. Line buses stop at designated l)l)ints, such as shopping malls, to pick up whomever might be standing there to go to the casino . The second type is charter buses . Charter bus trips are arranged by or for specific groups, such as social groups. Bus fare varies with the length of the trip, usually ranging from $10 to $30. For the ticket price, the player gets transportation to and from the casino and other amenities: $5 or $10 in quarters or meal ticket coupons or show. The first place to start getting the wheels in motion for your trip to the casinos, would be to look in The Philadelphia Inquirer . Either the Friday Weekend section or the Sunday Entertainment section. They will have listings of the various casinos taking part in this service, their pick up places and the ticket price.

Atlantic City is known for being one of the largest seaside resorts in the world, for its famous boardwalk, and of course for The Miss America pageant that takes place every year. But over the past couple of years, Atlantic City has gained fame and fortune due to the migration of gambling casinos from the West Coast. Question: What's cold, damp and gray on the outside a,nd bright and noisy on the inside? Answer: Atlantic City in the winter. Question: How do you get people inside Atlantic City in the winter? Answer: Any way you can! And one of the best ways is through promotional techniques such as bus trips to the casinos. Over the past two years, buses have deposited 2,000 to 5,000 people per day at various Atlantic City casinos.
and a half hour actually singing. "I'm totally exhausted after that," Norcini says . "I feel like I ran five miles!" Last year, Norcini won the Chester County Junior Miss Pageant. She won the talent competition, and the Spirit of Junior Miss award . "I wish I could have bottled that feeling," says Norcini. "It was the biggest high ." She then moved on to the Pennsylvania Pageant, but became ill. Her two sisters, Debbie, a graduate of Cabrini, and Vickie, describe their sister as outrageous. Norcini is the complete opposite of her older sisters. Norcini can 't play or sing opera ~ecause she knows that the record will be taken off or she 'll be told to keep quiet! Her father , though loves her singing. "Whenever he sees me sing he cries ," said Norcini. Norcini was encouraged to come to Cabrini by her father, Frank Norcini. Frank Norcini works here at the Physical Plant. We often see Norcini and his dog Humphrey , waving to us as they cut grass. 路 Her major is English and Communications . "If things don't work out, I'll be able to fall back on the English , maybe public relations or advertising. " Norcini would like to transfer in her sophomore year to either Philadelphia College of Performing Arts or The Philadelphia Musical Academy .
On April 1, Norcini sang in a competition for young singers sponsored by the Metropolitan Opera Company . Norcini is in the Eastern region. She sang against other freshman sopranos . She herself is a lyric soprano . Besides singing, Norcini has other interests. Her hobbies include playing the guitar and piano , running to help control her breathing, and her favorite, lifting weights. She goes to the opera a lot. Her favorite opera singer is Roberta Peters . "I think that soon 'Ill have the same quality or color as her voice," she says. Another favorite of hers is Barbara Streisand . Norcini considers herself . a semi-professional. "I sang at a few nightclubs and weddings . I won't sing anything unless I can feel it ," she says. Before thinking of singing as a career, Norcini wanted to be a cardiologist. " I want to do something or give something to people . If they are depressed, I want them to know that I like singing for them ."
About her career and fame she says, "I don't think it wi.ll happen from a competition or anything like that. I think that I'll be singing somewhere and someone important will be there and discover me . I just feel it. "
the designated pick up place that we wanted, which was right down the street from us. I called the place to get all the necessary information and to make our reservations . We picked up our tickets that morning and boarded a comfortable bus with reclining seats and a rest room too! The bus dropped us off at the doorstep of Resorts and for our ticket price of $10.95, we received $10 in quarters and a $3 meal coupon-(only redeemable at Resorts). , Six hours later, with a bag full of seashells and salt water taffies, the bus picked us up at the same place it dropped us off and we were on our way back to Philadelphia. Last winter 's competition for bus patrons escalated into a cutthroat "quarter war" with the casinos trying to out do one another by offering more quarters to bus riders. In each casino, the bus program generates more traffic than any other marketing effort, still, the promotions people keep coming up with new ideas to attract players to their properties .

'Chariots of Fire' runs ahead of the rest BY JOYCE PATITUCCI
The movie industry has long used sports as a metaphor of struggle and personal achievement. There was and still is the "Rocky" series; "Personal Best" has just been released, and there have been more than enough films about running. So what makes "Chariots of Fire," a film about two olympic runners competing furiously for different goals the awesome masterpiece it is? Everything, from the film score to the acting to the directing and producing. Director Hugh Hudson works efficiently with a mostly English, mostly unknown cast of actors. Based on the true story of Eric Liddle, a devout young missionary from Scotland and Harold Abrahams, a tall, dark serious Jew, the film is set in 1924,where the toll of World War
I is being tallied everywhere, including Caius College at Cambridge. We first meet Harold (Ben Cross) toting his bags and a large chip on his shoulder as he departs for Cambridge. Although he claims to be "first, last and always, a Cambridge man," he never forgets that he is Jew, partly because of the pride he take in his heritage and partly because of the cold treatment and anti-Semitic attitudes that he confronts him daily. For Harold Abrahams, who is the fastest runner in England at that time, his beloved sport is the only means with which he can defy the biological trappings of his heritage and overcome both the real and imagined obstacles that stand in bis way. Eric Liddle (Ian Charleson) competes just as seriously as his rival but for a different reason.
Liddle, a sincere, handsome young rugby player who is idolized by little boys and worshipped by young choir girls, runs for the glory of God. Although he fully intends to devote his life to his father's missionary in China, he believes "God made (him) fast for a purpose" and feels the most appropriate way he can honor and thank him for this talent is to win. Through slow-motion, excellent close-ups and unique camera sequences "Chariots of Fire" enables the audience to feel as though they themselves were running the -race. Through genuine and superb acting, Cross and Charleson allow you to feel exactly as they do. Hudson and producer David Putman also work advantageously with sound. Silence is often the film's strongestlanguage, particularly the locker _room scenes
'Evita' will leave you singing BY CHRIS PETRUZZO
"Evita," the pop opera based on the life of Eva Peron, wife of Argentine dictator Juan Peron, has come to Philadelphia's Forrest Theater. This exciting production won seven Tony Awards in 1980, including the Year's Best Musical, and is still going strong on Broadway. There are three "Evita" touring companies, among which is the one that opened at the Forrest on Thursday, Feb. 11, with advance ticket sales of $1.1 million. "Evita" is the latest success of lyricist Tim Rice and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber who have collaborated on such past successes as "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" ( 1967),and operetta for children; and "Jesus Christ Superstar" (1969), a rock musical. Tim Rice came up with the idea for "Evita after listening to a radio broadcast about Eva Peron's life. He became fascinated with Eva Peron and he researched her life. He found that Eva Duarte Peron started out as a street hustler with a lot of ambition and a degree of street
smarts. She slept her way to the top, meeting and using some of the most important, influential men in Argentina. Juan Peron was one of the men that she met and used. After marrying Peron, she reached the top, becoming the most powerful woman in Latin America. Eva then established herself as a benefactor of the poor, the "descamisados" or "shirtless ones," and at the same time, amassed her own private fortune of $25 million. Eva never lived to enjoy this fortune because she died of cancer at the age of 33. Her death in 1952 ensured her status as a legend among the "shirtless ones." The opening sequence of "Evita" is a scene of public lamentation over Eva's death, and the rest of the play is a series of flashbacks that document Eva's climb to the top. The audience can see how the climb begins with the small-time music man in Eva's hometown . Eva uses him to get where she wants to go-=Buenos Aires, the center of activity in Argentina . In Buenos Aires she meets and
sleeps with many important men; and in a revealing scene, complete with a revolving bedroom door, the audience sees how she uses these men to become first a radio personality. Eva has a charismatic presence, and she entrances the poor of Argentina, but the audience is kept from falling into her trance by the character of Che Guevara. He appears throughout the play to cast a skeptical eye on all that is going on, although Che Guevara, the Cuban revolutionary, was never in any of the situations that "Evita" brings to the stage. The cast of "Evita" includes Joy Lober as Evita, Anthony Crivello as Che and Robb Alton as Peron. All of these actors played their parts well, especially Crivello in the role of Che. Although "Evita" is about Eva Peron, and Che's appearance in the production is merely a theatrical device created by Rice and Webber, his appearance is what gives the production its balance and excitement. Without Che's cynical presence as a symbol of dissention, the play would be a one-sided glamourization of Eva Peron's life. This production of "Evita" is charged with energy and excitement from both the actors and the musical numbers, and it is almost guaranteed that you will leave the theater humming or singing one of the songs from it.
long prepared for. Nigel Havers portrays Lord Andrew Lindsay, a friend of Harold's whose eccentric personality may at first be mistaken for a lack of depth, but who later proves to be a noble example of honor and good sportsmanship. Because Eric and Harold were rivals on English soil, and most of the British team were Harold's friends, Liddle is somewhat ostracized until Lindsay makes a thoughtful sacrifice for a person be hardly knows but deeply respects and sympathizes with. Although "Chariots of Fire" is a great sports film, the olympics are only a backdrop for the personal struggles to maintain honor and refuse compromise.
that show each runner mentally preparing for each race in his own way. The haunting but truly inspirational music of Vangelis plays as important a part as the script does. Dennis Christopher (Breaking Away) and Brad Davis (Midnigh~ Express) make brief but significant appearances as Charlie Paddock and Jackson Scholz, the two American runners who were thought to be the best at the Paris Olympics. Davis perfectly captures the sensitivity and understanding Scholz felt for Eric Liddle, who faced the dilemma of running on the Sabbath and breaking the first commandment, or honoring the Lord and missing out on what he bad so
Movies rate high on recent survey BY SHEILA FANELLE On Feb. 16, Marcy R. Nadel, student activities director, bad an activities survey placed in each student's mailbox. The purpose of the survey "is to find out what people want. I'm tired of second guessing," Nadel said. "I received a good response but nowhere near what it could have been," Nadel said. A little over ten per cent responded within two or three days. The results showed that a large majority of the students want movies. "A 16 millimeter first run movie costs $700 and up for one night. If we can get VCR equipment, we could show specials like the super bowl inexpensively on movie cassettes," Nadel said . The students were not interested in speakers. The response to bands was high. "I asked the students to be realistic in requesting smaller bands price wise. The students were realistic.
Early next semester we will be getting the much requested band Back Streets," Nadel said. Mark Magner, a freshman English and communications major, Âˇ said on his survey that he . would attend various movies and live entertainment but it "depends on the cost. Most students are on a tight budget." Magner is not happy with the lack of interest and turn out to different events on c~mpus. "They've (activity sponsors) tried just about everything I'd like to see but the turn out is poor. For example I went to a roller skating event and two people were there," Magner added. Ellen Lavelle, a sophomore social work major and SGA social activities chairperson has scheduled Ted Steranko to come to Cabrini Monday April 12. Steranko is a singer, song writer and guitar player. "Steranko has performed at Cabrini before and he is back by popular demand," Lavelle said. Admission is free.

The talent performing in the benefit will be members of the theater lab and the Visual and Performing Art's Saturday program. "Dan asked me to wor.k with him in getting acts together. It is had for a new program to get funds. This benefit (donations) will help the organization to get started. We want everybody on and off camps to come and listen to a great evening of fun," McNamara said. ; r i
NCAA schools: Athletics First Of Two Articles On NCAA BY TOM DeMATTEIS
Over the past few weeks, much of the Cabrini community has been following the path to the NCAA basketball championship . However , few people are aware of what may be going on behind the scenes of these NCAA schools . In a recent series of articles in the New York Times several of these happenings were discussed . Seventeen schools are on NCAA probation. This equals the highest number for a single period and officials of the National Collegiate Athletic Association believe this list will grow longer before it gets any shorter. Thirty five other schools are being investigated for various violations including football powerhouses University of Southern California
and Clemson. This leads one to think that the athletic systems of colleges are out of control. All the teams on probation are either basketball or football teams, the two biggest college sports . The reasons and years on probation vary for each school. Schools have been put on probation for 1-3years for violations in recruiting, the paying of players and the forgoing of academic transcripts to improve grades . When a school is put on probation the penalty is usually that of disallowing the school to participate in post season play for whatever sport they have been cited in violation . Also, they are not allowed to share in the television re venue and a freeze is put on the number of scholarships the school can offer for that sport.
FRIDAY, APRIL 2, 1982
There is no need for such violations . The system is supposed to be simple . The coach is to scout a high school player, then talk to the player about coming to his school, pointing out the good points of the academic and athletic programs. The coach puts together a competitive team and they strive to win. They finish the season with a mediocre record so the coach goes out and improves. on what he already has for the next season. This is not how it works though. Increased competition and pres sure from alumni may be only two reasons why the many violations have been committed . Universities start off by paying their coaches outrageous sums of mone y , such as Texas A&M
Frisbee--a means of relaxation
paying Jackie Sherrill $1.7 million to put together a winning football team. This is the start of the pressure. Sherrill must now recruit the best players, immediately putting together a winning team or the pressure will get even greater. As stated in the New York Times current and former members of the University of Texas at El Paso track team said that former coach Ted Banks paid for winning performances and enrolled them in cushing classes so that they would receive passing grades. Several coaches have quit rather than take such pressures and commit such violations . Other coaches have . not been so lucky . A former tennis coach a Arizona State University , Marty
and release of tension BY DEBBIE JABLONSKI
Have you ever played a sport just to relax? How about just as a way to relieve tension? Do you know what sport everyone includ ing dogs can enjoy? The game ... frisbee . It was started early in the 19th century when several Yale University students began throw ing around a pie tin . Today , people spend up to $5 for a good frisbee compared to the original 2 cent pie tin that started the whole craze . Many variations of this game are played on the Cabrini campus toda y. Football frisbee , field frisbee , tag frisbee, golf frisbee and fetch frisbee consists of essentiall y the same thing, a frisbee and peole or a dog. In football frisbee , you make latral passes to advance the frisbee to your goal. Also, you can make more than one pass -per-

Pincus, and Willie Williams, the head track coach at the University of Arizona, both killed them selves in January as the result of pressures put on them when their schools joined a highly competitive conference. However , coaches are not the only ones who receive such pressures. Players also find themselves in pressured situations. For example, James Bozeman, a Florida State basketball player left the team rather than take drugs that would allow him to play on his damaged knee and ankle before they were healed . One can only hope that all colleges and universities will not get caught up in all this and keep college athletics in the proper perspective ; that is, second to aca demics .

Sports violence attracts spectator attention BY BRIAN JENSEN
While you're turning the dial on your television set looking for a desirable program, you turn to a Philadelphia Flyer's game, give a brief glance , and not being much of a hockey fan , you opt to change the channel to another station . Suddenly, just before you flip the dial, you notice that a fight breaks out on the ice. Several players throw their gloves off and grab each other while the announcer exclaims , "This looks like a big one! " Now the last thing on your mind is changing the channel. You sit back and watch the brawl with great intensity until the fists stop flying and the replay of how the fight began is shown four times in slow motion . As soon as the puck hits the ice and the hockey play resumes however , you hit the dial and your program searching begins again . Scenarios such as this one exemplify the reactions of many toward violent outbreaks in sports , and people at Cabrini ha ve proven to be no exception . As a matter of fact, all those who were asked if the y had chosen to wat ch the violence that some times occurs in sporting events, admitted that they would . Most also said that such a reaction
toward violent behavior is "natu ral. " Violence in sports has been the subject of serious discussion, especially in recent years . It has been shown by statistics that violent incidents in sports have occured more often in the last few years, particulary in sports considered non-violent like baseball or basketball . Furthermore, it has been noted that since the National Hockey League has made recent efforts to curb its notorious violence by imposing stricter rules, the NHL box office has received a black eye . As players stopped dropping other players, so did fans stop dropping by the hockey arenas around the counry . Such facts suggest that not only are violent actions in sports on the upswing , but such violence is quite popular with the fans. Along with many other people from Cabrini, Chris Collins, former president of Cabrini's athletic association , gave his opinion on violence in today 's sports . " There is no doubt that most spectators enjoy watching violence in sports whether they will admit to it or not . I don't know a thing about ice hockey, but I like to watch the brawls ," Collins said . CoHins. like most others in-
terviewed, pointed out that he by no means advocates the violent actions seen in sports today, but he does feel most fans , including himself, are attracted to such displays of tempers. "Hockey is aburd at times but the fights keep the crowd," Collins said . Collins thought that much violence in sports is generated by the athlete who is highly motivated and competitive in the sport he is involved in . Tony Ciro, one of the more aggressive minded Cabrini athlets gave his view on why violence is "generated" when he plays for the Cabrini soccer team . " I have been close to being in fights plenty of times, " Ciro said . Ciro explained that it can be aggravating to get "bounced around " during a rough soccer game . This aggravation combined with strong competitiveness can cause tempers to flare," he explained. " I have lost my head for a second and was tempted to hit someone . You loose your cool for a brief moment and you don't think things out . It is an impulse," Ciro said . Ciro was also quick to point out that such "impulses " are not good for the team , nor are they
Life on the bench ... worthwhile? Mike Bennett , a senior basket ball first-string pla yer and one of the tri-captains , talked about the Cavalier bench. " At the awa y games those on the bench are the ones you hear cheering for you, " he said . " At practice, they make you push harder . We had an excellent bench ." Paul Breslin , sophomore , played both soccer and basket -

When I was told of this assignment , I could not quite figure out how to approach it . My story was to be titled " Life on the Bench ," and being from the city I figured I was supposd to write about the bag ladies who hang out in Rittenhouse Square. I was quite mistaken . This article was to deal with something I felt was much more difficult - how it feels to be a member of a sports squad and have to sit out almost the entire game . I neither knew what exactly to write about nor how peole would respond. After putting it off until the last possible time, I finally made myself go out and get my interviews. As I thought about the people I would approach, I remembered back to my high school days when I was also one who did not get in a lot of playing time . Luckily, I no longer throw fits when I hear the term bench warmer . Hearing that word used to make me feel like a heating pad . I never really thought of myself as even being important to the team much of the time . Let's face it, subbing into a game with one minute left and the team ahead by 30 points does not offer much incentive for hustle. But Dave Pilla, a sophomore soccer player, would have something to say about this way of thinking. "Even though I was on the bench, I liked to watch," he said . "I still felt vital to the team ." Sometimes when I went to my baskerball practices in high school I wondered if it was worth it. I often wondered if I had masachistic tendencies to work so hard in practice and not get to play in the games. Pilla could rebut this also . "It was a lot of work, but I gained a lot ,"he said. "The prac. tices kept me in shape and I learned a lot." ~ It~

gam es . " Pla yers on the bench are import ant because they cheer on the other players," said junior Debbie Jablonski , a member of the women 's basketball team . " At pr actices I'd try my hardest. I'd make it more difficult for the first string so they would be more read y for games ." Jablonski noted that it is humilating when you get put in a
the right thing for an athlete to experience . When I throw a cheap shot, which I have done, two minutes later I feel stupid about it and will be the first to apologize to a guy," Ciro said . Another Cabrini soccer player, Sulaman Allyn had a more passive attitude. "I was never tempted to get into a fight during a game . Fighting disrupts play and there is really no need for it," Allyn said . Allyn agreed with Ciro that fighting in sports is usually a " spontaneous impulse " done with little forethought . He regarded a violent situation in sports to be unpedictable and uncontrollable . "I think the situation dictates the possibility of a fight. There is very little you can do to prevent something that is not planned,'' Allyn said . Allyn also felt that the "Male ego" was a major cause for fights in sports and that men like to put on a "macho show ". "The male instinct naturally brings fighting to mind ," Allyn said . Allyn generally felt that fighting in sports was " stupid ." Although he had a passive attitude toward fighting , Allyn did admit that he too does not change the channel in the middle of a fight during a hockey game . " Sure it catches my interest . I watch to see who gets the better of the other person . It is that kind of competitiveness and challenge that keeps me watching ," Allyn said . Women's basketball player , Debbie Harvey , who says she gets "knocked around a lot " is strongly against violence in any sport , but at the same time un-
derstood why violent outbreaks might occur . "It is advantageous to be ag gressive in a game because one can intimidate another and play better against his or her opponent. It is when people get over aggressive and feelings build up when violence occurs," Harvey said . Harvey pointed out that " aggressiveness in sports is one thing , but a line has to be dawn. " "Violence in any sport is unnecessary and should not occur at all cost . Violence does not show whether a person is a good ath lete or not," Harvey said . Even though Havey said violence should not occur " at all cost " she admitted that she had been tempted to resort to the violent tendency she despises . "I remember once in a game against Drexel a girl hit me in the back and my first reaction was to pluck her one ," Harvey said . Harvey said that she has seen several violent outbreaks in her . experiences as a basketball player . " I' ve seen it ha pen , a push here and a shove there , then fist start flying ," Harvey said . Women's Athletic Director , Helen Goodwin was yet another person who admitted that a violent display catches her eye . When put in the same circumstancs as suggested to others , Goodwin said she would indeed leave a hocke y game on to watch a fight . " I don't know why, I think it is a natural reaction. I don't like to see people hurt , yet for some reason I watch it anywa y," Goodwin said. The same response was popular all over campus .

Thanks to the Athletic Association students around campus now have something to break up their long nights of studying . March 22 marked the beginning of the 1982 Intramurals program. On Monday and Wednesday nights volleyball games are played and on Tuesday and Thursday nights basketball games are played . The volleyball league consists of eight co-ed teams made up of 12 players each. Four games are played each night through April 12. The basketball league consists of five, eight member teams . Two games are played a night through April 27. ball. Although he got in a lot of playing time for soccer , he was on the bench for a good deal of the basketball season . " I contributed to the basketball team because I made them better for a game," he said . "By cheering, I kept their spirits up in tough times ." Breslin said he would like to have had more playing time, but explained by saying that there are different levels of ability and the coach has to do what is best for the team . "Now I appreciate the players on the bench in soccer more," he said . While sitting on the sidelines during the games in high school, I always used to think of my French homework or what I would be doing the following weekend . Sometimes I wondered why I even bothered going to the ••
game with five seconds left because it makes a player feel that she is not good enough. She feels that the second string should have been put in more when the team was ahead by 20 points and there was not much time left. The best attitude conveyed by players was that of sophomore soccer player Andy Zipfel. This past soccer season was his first. His ideas seem to sum up everything a coach would want a second-string player to be. " l helped by always trying to hustle and keep up," he said. "I triedto get better so the guys on the top would have to get better to hold their spots. The practices were fun because I enjoyd the game, and we were alwayspracticing ."
Wrestling at Cabrini? A wrestling program is trying to get off the ground here at Cabrini but the lack of money is what is keeping it grounded. Andrew Litavec, assistant professor of education, has a tentative 10 to 12 match schedule set up and there is a great deal of interest from the male population at Cabrini. However, Mike Garrison (85) estimates that $5,000 is needed to start a team. Word is being awaited from SGA on whether or not they will put forward some of the money to get the program started.
Soccer All-Stars The indoor soccer season that was played in Cabrini's Sacred Heart Gym ended with Will "Loup" Langtons team winning the· championship . An all-star team was then selecte~ from the remaining teams in the league to play the champions at-the Spectrum on March 28. All-Stars selected from the Cabrini team were; Steve Brown, Sulamon Allyn, Tony Ciro, Jeff Brun and Jim Vail. This game was won by the All-Stars 3-2.

Softball season comes to bat BY RITA McKELVEY She stands poised, bat above head, hands clenched tightly around the bat. She eyes the pitcher, licks her lips, swings the bat, and slam!, Cabrini's softball seasonis open. Cabrini's season opened on March 27 with a game played against Lebanon Valley College. Cabrini came up on top with a score of 13-4. Cabrini's coach, Jill Fausnaught said she felt great about the win. "I was really excited," she said, "it's my first softball win in the college league." Fausnaught has been coaching softball -for two years. This is her first year coaching the sport at Cabrini. She formerly coached the boy's varsity team at
Vanguard Middle School. Fausnaught says that she thinks it will be a good season for Cabrini. "We have a lot of good freshmen, " she said. Last year, Cabrini ' s softball team was tied for the league Division 3 championship, however, they never got to break the tie because the school year closed before they had a chance to play . Fausnaught coached basketball at Cabrini last year and says she didn't coach softball because she didn't have enough time. "I saw Cabrini play last year," she said, "They were good." Cabrini 's opening game could be considered a chiller. The weather conditions were not your average spring conditions .

Athletes toes became numb while spectators moved about to k~ep warm . The Lady Cavaliers was filled with action.
The women were losing at the beginning of the game . However, team work and individual efforts pulled the Lady Cavaliers towards their first victory of the '82 season. Fausnaught said that about 32 girls tried out for the team this year, but only 15 made it.
BY CAROL WAHL "Okay ; everybody in the pool." Do you remember hearing your swimming instructor telling you to get into the water; whether it was a pool or a lake, even though the temperature outside was fifty degrees and the water temperature was not much warmer? In case your swimming instructor did not tell you, swim ming is important to both your body and your mind. It has been a sport which has been around since man and water first came in contact with each other.
The team members are: Sue Masino (84), Fran Congileo (83), Regina Law (84), Patty Hinke (85), Mary Collins (83), Terry Leinenbach (83), Annette De Jesse (84), Lynn Wasilewski (85), Lisa Hurst (85), Eileen Herbig (85), Maria Carbone (82), Maureen McKenna (85), Debby Harvey (85), Theresa Giudice (83), and Chris Stadter (84) .
In the times of prehistoric cave people, swimming was not only a form of recreation ; it was a skill needed to survive . Prehistoic man swam to catch fish and to escape from animals that were hunting them. Fausnaught says that fielding But as time went on and the will be the team's strong point · dinosaurs disappeared swimthis season . ming became a method of relaxation and a way to keep clean . The season will end on April 28 Since indoor plumbing was not with a total of 12 games played. invented for quite a while; lakes
and man-made pools were not only used to swim in but also to bath in. It was not until the 19th centur y that swimming was recognized as an official sport . It was in this century that- the development of the three basic strokes : the crawl, the backstroke, and the breast stroke, came into being . There are presently two prin cipl organizations that romote swimming in the United States today : the Amateur Athletic Union (A.A.U.) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (N .C.A .A . )
Some swimmers swim for fun and others swim for glory and fame . Mark Spitz won seven gold medals in the 1972 Olympic Games and John V. Sigmund holds the longest officially recorded swimming record for swimming 292 miles in the Mississippi River . Although she was never in the Olympics or swam in the Mississipi , Cathy Sullivan , ju nior, has been on a swimming team . She says that swimming is a great exercise for eve r yone ; some people even use swimm ing as therapy . " It develops all parts of your body," Sullivan said. "You ha ve to use all your muscles.
