NO. 2 

New Career Planning Center Open 

by Imelda Corpuz 

There is but one reason why room 202 of 
the Humanities Building is comfortably fur- 
nished with two off-white cushiony sofas, two 
lengthy bookshelves along the west walls of 
the room and black-gray carpeting. There is 
also a desk facing the entrance to the room. 

What had once been a dreary college 
classroom, because of its one-coloredness, 
where perhaps an oral presentation was given 
as to the kinds of horses that existed during 
America's revolution, is now the new loca- 
tion of the Career Planning Center. Its direc- 
tor, Michael Katakis, places great emphasis 
on the work "center" rather than "office" 
because it is a place for students to congregate 
and to discover from one another and from 
themselves — themselves and the world of 
career options open to college students. 

Use of the resources available in the center 
such as career books and pamphlets and 
statistical reports on the job market will help 
students come to terms with their profes- 
sional goals. It is Mr. Katakis' belief that 
i l.intication of a student's professional goals 
and clarification of the self form a large part of 
the time and effort (including the vast sum of 
money) spent at a lour year institution of 
higher learning 

1 he internship program is .mother aspect 
ol Mr Katakis' philosophy behind the career 
center Internships link Mount Saint Man \ 
college and the communities of Los Angeles. 
Student interns are given the chance to put 
theory into practice In other words, interns 
an i.iken out of the Chalon campus setting 

and put onto the stage of work. More impor- 
tantly, internships become springboards to 
future employment. 

The center's first intern, Lillian Her 
nandez (senior, political science-history ma- 
jor) is interning with Congressman Anthony 
Beilenson in his Westwood office. There are 
also business internships with Lockheed, 
Goodson-Toddman Productions and ABC. 
The creation of the internships is due to the 
persistent public relations effort of Mr. 

The center also provides information 
through the career newsletter which is 
available for everyone on both campuses.

Editor's Note: This is the second in a 
series of editorials aimed at establishing 
an awareness and means of communica- 
tion between the administration, faculty, 
staff and student body. 

Ata hopes to encourage commuters to par- 
ticipate by interacting with resident students 
at mealtimes. 

The VIEW invited Ata Shafiyoon, Direc- 
tor of Food Services to be this month's guest 
contributor for ' 'We Are The Mount.' In a 
conversation with the VIEW Ata expressed 
his opinions on issues relating to his depart- 
ment and on the goals and strifes of his posi- 

Ata sees the cafeteria as the main social 
ground for resident students, where they 
come not only to eat but to take a break and 
to escape from the pressures and anxieties of 
student life. Ata realizes the importance of 
having a pleasant atmosphere in which 
students can take time to relax and to enjoy 
themselves. By providing this clean and neat 
environment, Ata hopes to encourage com- 
muters to participate and to become a more 
integral member of the Mount community 
by interacting with the resident students at 

Ata has set a standard of excellence, not 
only in the atmosphere of the cafeteria, but 
also in its nutritional standards. Presently he 
is expanding his education about nutrition. In 
conjunction with Lisa Chang of Health Ser- 
vices, Ata is re-evaluating the entire menu 
and making changes based on nutritional 
guidelines. For example, students now have 
the option of a beef entree or a non-beef en- 
tree. In preparing the menu for an upcoming 
week, Ata consults a variety of charts, ar- 
ticles from nutritional journals and educa- 
tional pamphlets so that meals are nutritious 
and well balanced. 

A frequent complaint voiced by students is 
that meals are too high in calories. Ata ex- 
plains that the responsibility is left up to the 
students discretion as to what and how much 
to eat. Students must be more conscious of 
what they eat and how it will affect their diet. 
The choice between pound cake or a banana 
is the student's decision and not the respon- 
sibility of Food Service. 

An existing problem that could be easily 
solved is the amount of food being un 
consciously thrown into the garbage. Ata 
stresses that there is always plenty of food and 
students need not fill their plates to capacity 
the first time through the meal line. There is 
always the invitation to have seconds, thirds 
or even fourths It is irresponsible for an in 

dividual to dump food into the trash just 
because she was not conscious of the amount 
of food she alloted to herself. By wasting food, 
the cost rises, which affects the price resident 
students pay for board. 

The amount of missing silverware and 
china from the cafeteria has become a serious 
problem according to Ata. Granted, many 
students may just borrow a cup or plate, but 
every time this is done it is necessary to 
replace the missing item. This replacement of 
borrowed items directly affects the resident 
student by limiting the variety and quality of 
food or by an increase in room and board. 

Ata explains that a profit is not made off 
the resident student; profit is earned through 
outside events that use the hired services of 
the Food Service. The profit made from these 
events directly benefits the resident student 
by improving the variety and quality of the 

It is important to note that the problems of 
food service are not caused by any one group; 
all have at some time contributed to the pro- 

An additional problem Ata must deal with 
is one of the non-paying guests. They help to 
increase prices and to lower the quality of the 
food. To help reduce this problem Food Ser- 
vice hopes to implement the use of a discount 
meal card for individuals who do not live on 
campus. Presently, faculty and ad- 
ministrators have the privilege to use a dis- 
count card, but students have yet to be ex- 
tended this same privilege. 

By the formation of a Food Committee, 
Ata hopes to implement change. The Food 
Committee is a group of students who voice 
the satisfactions and improvements needed by 
their classmates. At this time no such com- 
mittee exists. Ata urges students to join and 
to help improve the Food Services. If you are 
interested in working on the Food Commit- 
tee, contact Ata at his office. 

In respect to student attitudes, Ata ex- 
presses that the students are of an excellent 
calibre. "I have never seen a better quality of 
students than here at Mount St. Mary's" 
Ata said. Ata further stated "that without 
students, we are nothing." Ata assesses his 
standard of excellence by the satisfaction of 
the students and his continual pursuit of ex- 

Update On 
Food Service 

The Food Service working in conjunction 
with the Business Department and the VIEW 
will be offering a meal discount card for com- 
muter students. The discount card will enti- 
tle commuter students to a 25% reduction 
on all food and beverage in the cafeteria. It is 
available upon request in the Business Office. 

Atta hopes that this improvement will in 
spire students to participate on the Food 
Committee as it is important that students ac- 
tively pursue improvements for themselves. 


The Health Center. Health Advocates, 
and Resident Assistants are sponsoring 
Alcohol Awareness during the month of Oc- 
tober. They will be providing various 
speakers and discussion groups, and informa- 
tion to promote Alcohol Education among 
the MSMC community. Look for an- 
nouncements of times and locations of these 
events in the Student Bulletin. 

Being aware of alcohol and its effects starts 
with learning to drink responsibly. If you are 
going to drink, here are some ideas and ways 
to drink responsibly: 

1. It takes the body about 1 hour to 
metabolize one drink (1 drink = 1 
shot of liquor, 1 beer, or 5 oz. of wine) 

2. Gulping drinks is dangerous and will 
intoxicate you more quickly than if 
you sip and enjoy your drink. 

3. Don't drink on an empty stomach; try 
to eat while drinking. High protein 
foods significantly slow the absorption 
of alcohol. 

4. Make plans beforehand so that so- 
meone sober will drive home. If the 
driver is not sober, ride with someone 

5. Your mood and physical state can 
make you more susceptible to the ef- 
fects of alcohol. So, if you are tired or 
depressed, alcohol may have a greater 
impact on you. 

6. Set limits on how many drinks you are 
going to have and stick to it. 

7. Keep in mind that drinking should not 
be the primary focus of any activity. 

8. Recognize another's right to drink or 
not to drink. 

9. Seek help if you think you have a 
drinking problem. If you think so- 
meone else may have a problem en- 
courage him/her to seek help. Feel 
free to make an appointment in the 
Health Center with counselor Joyce 
Snyder MFCC or to talk with a Health 
Advocate or Resident Assistant about 
your concerns.

As part of the new feature columns appear- 
ing in the VIEW, the following interviews 
deal with one faculty member and one stu- 
dent member of the Mount community. 

The purpose of ' 'Profiles on Campus ' ' is 
to gel to know the persons interviewed on a 
personal level. The faculty member and stu- 
dent selected for this month 's issue are 
Michael Katakis and Ann Albertoni. 


In the last year, Michael Katakis' voice has 
been audible in the hallways any time of the 
day. His pink long-sleeve shirts and coughing 
Volkswagen have become common sights on 

When he is not dodging students on his 
way to the Humanities Building or busily 
sharing his enthusiasm with others, Katakis, 
Director of the Career Planning Center, is 
hard at work. He has screened and created a 
network of internships for MSMC students 
and has built an atmosphere of soul-searching 
in his career-planning classes wherein he 
prods the students' minds as to why they 
favor one value over another, or, whv this 
career over that career. His favorite question 
has always been "why?". 

One of Katakis' goals at the college is to 
enable students to answer "why" questions 
because "if she can't articulate her ideas to 
others", a self-dialogue does not exist. In 
other words, "know thyself 

Katakis described himself as one who likes 
constant challenges, and the Mount allows 
him many. For example, he finds it a 
challenge to boost the morale on camus 
through teamwork between and among ad- 
ministration and students. It involves team- 
work to develop the attitude that the Mount, 
in spite of certain limitations, has many 
"positive possibilities" partially because in 
the past, some of the "positive possibilities" 
have become real and exist with us today. 

K.itakis' life has been a string of 
challenges. At sixteen, Michael Katakis left 
the south side of Chicago to become a musi- 
cian. As a result, he has traveled and per- 
formed at major music halls. As a young 
adult, his interest in politics was so intense 
that he did a great deal of research on the 
John F Kennedy assassination. He cam- 
paigned for Senator David Roberti and 
became a legislative assistant tor the senator. 

It was during this time that a visit to 
Mount Saint Man's College materialized. 
H( subsequentl) submitted a resume which 
J( s t ribed his educational background, in 
eluding a Bachelor of Arts in United States 
Histnr\ Irom Antioch University He was a 
participant in an educational management 
seminar at Harvard University and UC1 \ 
summer seminar at Cambridge University in 
England. He is presentlj working on his 
master's here at Mount Saint Man's 

Sometime in the future, he would like to 
sail to Australia alone, manage his own 
businesses and continue his involvement in 

It has been a long way from the showroom 
of Carnegie Music Hall to the serene, Gothic 
atmosphere of the Mount. The young man 
whose smile extends from ear to ear on a 
boyish face, has only one message to Mount 
students; and this message, he emphatically 
points out, would be no different as to what 
he would say at a coed campus. "I urge every 
student to get involved in a positive way . . . 
apathy and indifference will get you 


Ann Albertoni once went unnoticed and 
unheard of. However, now she is a senior 
nursing major whose dedication and hard 
work are felt by all. 

Any marked changes about her, she says, 
are as a result of her experiences here as a 
three- year member of Health Advocates, a 
four-year member of the Womens Leadership 
Program, a Pi Theta Mu member, a three- 
year S.O.S. participant (S.O.S. Director in 
1981), as SNAC vice-president in 1981 and 
as business manager for this year's Cafe 
Maison and Yearbook (1981). 

"I've gotten a lot from the Mount because 
it is not only a place to receive a well-rounded 
education", but a place of vast opportunities 
for leadership, self-awareness and spiritual 
growth. The Mount is the starting point for 

Ann's quick response over the bitter argu- 
ment that the Mount is a dead place in terms 
of social life is , "it is a matter of individual 
responsibility" — that beyond the boun- 
daries of Bundy drive there is a social life for 

A resident turned commuter, Ann is sen- 
sitive to the needs of commuters. She carries 
a deep concern for the safety of commuters in 
terms of the parking facilities provided for 
them here. 

Upon graduation in May of 1983, Ann 
will remain in the Los Angeles area and 
specialize in the nursing field, particularly in 
the area of intensive care. Community ser- 
vices are among her immediate priorities. 

Ann shares the feelings of many of her 
senior colleagues when she says "it is all fit- 
ting into place — it is all worth it." Her ad- 
vice to Mount students is related to her 
philosophy of life, "Take each moment as it 
comes and let God guide you through."

"Almost Heaven" 
is Yearbook Theme 

The MSMC yearbook will have a fresh 
new approach under the direction of Daniel 
Moreno, yearbook editor. The task of presen- 
ing Mount St. Mary's in a yearbook is a year- 
long committment of perseverance and 
dedication. The theme for the yearbook, 
"Almost Heaven", is indicative of the goal 
Moreno and his staff have established. 

According to Moreno, "A yearbook is a 
historical document of what happened during 
the year. It is an account of the people and 
events at the Mount." He further em- 
phasizes that because it is a historical docu- 
ment it is essential to have candid photos pro- 

perly marked with names of the individuals 
so that students in 10 or 20 years can look 
back and have an accurate account of people 
at the Mount. 

When asked how he felt about being editor 
at a woman's liberal arts college and if it 
poses any problems for him Moreno respond- 
ed, "I classify people as people. I really don't 
think of people in terms of their sex. I believe 
that I can produce a yearbook that is reflec- 
tive of the Mount because of the friendships I 
have established on campus and because of 
my sense of belonging to the Mount com- 

Moreno is a sophomore nursing student. 
He was a member of his high school year- 
book staff before becoming the editor at Cant- 
well High School. 

The yearbook will be on sale starting the 
last week of October. 



What is the National Model United Nations 

An exciting alternative to traditional 
means of education, the National MUN Con- 
ference offers a practical education about the 
United Nations. By simulating the activities 
of a UN body, student participants assume 
the roles of diplomatic representatives to the 
UN and consider items from the UN 
system's vast agenda. 

Students gain greater understanding of 
global issues and the complexities of the in- 
ternational system through five days of 
simulated UN sessions at the actual UN 
building in New York. Over 1200 college 
students from the U.S., Canada and Puerto 
Rico attend the Conference every year. 

In addition to learning about the cultures, 
policies and countries they represent, 
students also learn about the world as a 
whole. Through their preparation for the 
Conference students are also motivated to 
sharpen a variety of personal technical skills, 
such as public speaking and persuasive 
writing. Perhaps most important, the Model 
UN process forces a student to learn the 
precious skills of compromise, caucusing and 

NOT TO BE FORGOTTEN is the fact 
the NMUN is held in one of the most 
fascinating cities in the country -- NEW 
YORK. Delegates will have ample time to ex- 
perience sights and sounds of the Big Apple. 
Last but not least, students will have the op- 
portunity to meet over 1200 students from 
colleges across the U.S., Canada and Puerto 
Rico. For further information, contact Eva 
Nicasio at Student Development. 


Lillian Hernandez explains to Mary Williams 
the joys of being a member of NMUN.

By Lillian Hernandez 

Shirley Mount Hufstedler, former 
Secretary of Education and federal appellate 
judge, has been invited to serve as the 
speaker for the 1983 graduation ceremony. 
Hufstedler was originally contacted about 
speaking at the 1982 graduation. She was 
not able to attend but expressed an interest in 
Mount St. Mary's College, so an invitation 
was issued for the 1983 ceremony. The 
President's office does not expect to receive a 
confirmation until sometime in January. The 
senior class officers have submitted a list of 
alternate choices to Sister Magdalen in case 
Hufstedler is unable to accept the invitation. 

Hufstedler has had a distinguished career. 
She earned a bachelor's degree in business 
administration in 2-1/2 years from the 
University of New Mexico. She considered 
entering medical school but decided to attend 
law school at Stanford University where she 
was on the staff of the Stanford Law Review 
and graduated tenth in her class. 

After practicing general civil law in Los 
Angeles for ten years, Hufstedler was ap-

Money, Money, Money and more 
Money!!! That's the name of the game in 
the Office of Resource Development. 

A private college, such as the Mount, 
derives its income from tuition and fees, 
private gifts and grants from individuals, cor- 
porations and foundations, and from govern- 
ment grants. And, because sixty-seven per- 
cent of our students receive financial 
assistance to attend a private college, the 
primary focus of Resource Development has 
been to replace diminishing government stu- 
dent aid funds with funds from private 
sources, to off-set the short-fall. 

Generally, tuition and fees account for 
52% to 55% of income, government grants 
for about 12% to 15% and the remaining 
must be obtained from private funding 
sources . . . that is the function of the office 
of Resource Development. 

The Office of Resource Development, as it 
is now known, began six years ago. From 
that modest beginning in early 19/6 when 
we raised, with the aid of the Alumnae 
Association, $409,780.00 to the present, 
with the same staff, we raised in 1981, 
$2,040,981.00 ... an increase of 398% in 
six years. 

Raising funds for student aid is not the only 
thing we do. We also secure funding for 
buildings, programs, projects, equipment, 
repairs, renovation and other needs of the 
College. Determining the need is the beginn 
ing of the process: a clear statement of need 
accompanied by a valid budget provides the 
elements our office needs to move into the 
next step, research. Extensive research is 
directed to the location of potential funding 
sources, be they individuals, corporations or 
foundations. Some, more than others, may be 
inclined to give to a small, private Catholic 
College, primarily for women, in Southern 
California. Also, some, more than others, 
will have a greater capacity to respond 
favorably to a request for an amount that 
would meet the stated need. Following the 
identification of potential donors, the process 
of cultivation begins: the development of a ra- 
tional, timely, reasonable approach with a 
cogent, concise, and credible appeal. 

Following the successful appeal and obtain- 
ing of a grant, for whatever need, there is the 
acknowledgement of the gift and reporting on 
the utilization of the funds. In the case of stu- 
dent financial aid, "thank you" letters from 
student recipients to funding sources are tru- 
ly rewarding! These friendly gestures go a 
long way toward sustaining productive rap- 
port with generous funding sources. 

Other functions of the Resource Develop- 
ment Office include the coordination of 
special events and the activities of the 
Regents Council, including their annual 
Founders Anniversary Ball. We also host 
each year two special dinners for major 
donors, as guests of the College President, to 
express our gratitude for their support. In ad- 
dition, we maintain liaison with our 
legislators in Sacramento and Washington 
D.C. to assure that our knowledge of pending 
legislation is timely and accurate as it pertains 
to private, post-secondary institutions such as 
Mount St. Mary's. 

Raising funds for Mount St. Mary's Col- 
lege is truly gratifying. We work with the 
finest, most dedicated staff and faculty, and 
the most deserving and appreciative students 
of any campus. We would prefer to be closer 
to the students, the faculty and the staff, but 
the very nature of our business mandates we 
deal primarily with external publics, 
therefore we spend much of our time off cam- 

You have an open invitation to come by 
and visit us at any time. Our office is directly 
across the hall from the Business Office. And 
for the young woman who is still 
"undecided" about her future career, take a 
look at Resource Development. Fund-raising 
is becoming big business. More and more 
young women are moving into the field 
because of the enormous opportunities for 
growth. You meet the nicest people — peo- 
ple of means, people with compassion, people 
with a high level of sensitivity to the needs of 
others and the ability to do something about

WASHINGTON, October 4 - - As part 
of an ongoing program to raise awareness of 
current housing issues on the nation's col- 
lege campuses, Fred Napolitano, president of 
the National Association of Home Builders, 
today announced a national essay contest for 
college students. 

"More than any other group of 
Americans," Napolitano said, "today's col- 
lege students have the most to lose if national 
priorities are not set to reverse a serious ero- 
sion in housing opportunities for the 

Napolitano said he hoped the contest 
would elicit from students their ideas about 
the kind of housing they would like to find 
after graduation and the trade-offs they would 
be willing to accept in order to make housing 
more affordable. 

Students entering the contest are asked to 
describe in 500-1,000 words: "What do 
you expect in terms of location, densitv. 
design and financing in tomorrow's homes 
and how will these affect your lifestyle." 

Napolitano said that although builders 
were already constructing less expensive 
townhouses, duplexes and walk-up con- 
dominiums to reduce housing costs, they 
welcomed new ideas and suggestions from 
members of the community who would be 
looking for affordable, yet dynamic housing 
alternatives in the next few years. 

The first-place winner of the essay contest 
will receive $1,000 and a trip to 
Washington. Second and third place winners 
will receive $750 and $500 respectively. 

To be eligible, entries must be from 
registered full-time college students and 
received no later than November 30, 1982 
by the National Association of Home 
Builders, Public Affairs/Student Program. 
15th & M Streets, N.W., Washington. DC. 

Winners will be selected by an independent 
panel of judges and notified during the last 
week in December. All essays become the 
property of NAHB

United Way Month 

Once again it is November and with it 
comes turkey and the annual United Way 
Campaign! Each year the college designates 
one month as United Way Month. During 
this time we encourage all faculty, acf 
ministration and students to donate to this 
very worthy cause. Not only does tins 
organization benefit the Cancer Society, City 
of nope, Heart Association and Red ' 
etc. it also supports neighborhood and com- 
mumt\ services. Statistics show that one of 
every three people in the community has 
been touched by the United Way. What a 
nicer way is there to celebrate the spirit of 
Thanksgiving by sharing a little of what we 
have with the needy. 

This year's j>oal is based not onl\ nn the 
amount of money but also on the number of 
donors. Our student goal is set at $ ^5n it. im 
240 donors.

After travelling 101/2 hours and lugging 
200 pounds of luggage, or 5 months' worth 
of necessities, I arrive at Charles de Gaulle 
airport in Paris. I am actually here! Ex 
hausted from the trip, I decide to take a taxi 
to the Institute for European Studies. Driving 
through the city, I caught a glimpse of La 
Tour Eiffel, Le Louvre Museum and Notre 
Dame. It was so neat seeing the things that 
you always read about. Finally, I arrive at my 
school. It is a pretty remarkable thing 
because everything you read about the 
French as drivers is TRUE! They drive so 
fast and so haphazardously that I was tense 
and nervous the whole time. I was relieved 
when we got there safe and sound. 

Just as I was getting my things out of the 
cab, Madame Rousseau, one of the directors, 
came running out of the building, gave the 
cab an address, handed me an envelope and 
told me to put myself and the luggage back in 
the cab because the driver was going to take 
me to my residence. "You want me to get 
back in there?" Though fearing for my life, I 
did what she asked because I was so tired and 
just wanted to see a bed where I could sleep 
for a year. During this ride, I saw more of the 
city. I saw the Champs-Elycees, which is a 
very famous street on which all the designers 
have their shops. I'll have to check that par 
ticular street out when I have a little more 

When I was talking about the French 
drivers, that was before we drove around 
L'Arc de Triomphe. I had to close my eyes 
because there are no stop lights, no lanes, no 
police officers directing traffic and no turn 
signals. It was basically everyone go wherever 
they want, just don't get in anyone else's 

Finally I arrived at my home in Neuilly, 
just outside Paris, for the next 5 months. If 
you look down the street, you can clearly see 
the Arc de Triomphe History right at my 

After meeting and getting acquainted with 
both my roomate and my landlady, we sat 
down to a typical French dinner. We have the 
main course first which was Croque Mon- 
sieur (kind of a grilled ham and cheese sand- 
wich), and fresh French bread. That was 
followed by salad and bread, about 5 different 
types of cheese, more bread, and then for 
dessert, creme au chocolat and cookies. All of 
i his was complimented by lots of wine. I 
think I'm going to like it here. 

The next day was the first day or orienta- 
tion at the Institute. It was interesting 
meeting different people from all over the 
United States. Everytime I told someone that 
1 was from Los Angeles. California, the) 
would ask me it I was a Val (Valley Girl |!, il I 
surfed, il il ever rams m Southern California, 
and if I knew Joe Shmoe in San Francisco.

necessary to take the subway or Le Metro. It 
is i \tremely fast, easy, and efficient and can

1 00 am ever) niyht. so ii vou're a person 
that likes to go init at nitht. like me. you 
have to watch your watch to make sim you 
can catch I e Mi tro home. 

Since Pans is the capital of France and 
there are so manv political events happening 

in the world today, you see many political 
demonstrations. In fact, one of my American 
friends was coming out of MacDonalds and 
walked into an Anti-American demonstra- 
tion. Those are the times where you don't 
speak any English and learn French very 
quickly. It really isn't bad for Americans 
because most of the demonstrations have to 
do with the Beruit situation, so there is more 
hostility toward anything Middle Eastern. 

All of the Middle Eastern businesses have at 
least 4 police officers nearby in case of any 
sign of trouble. To the French, life goes on as 
usual; they don't pay much attention to the 
Middle Eastern demonstrators. 

This month has been very exciting. Paris is 
a beautiful city with so many things to offer. 
While I'm here, I intend to take Full advan- 
tage of them . . . this is just the beginning. 

Music Ministry Explained 

By Kay Erdumn 

I am often asked what my major is. This is a common enough question, I know. However, 
when I answer "music ministry", I typically get one of two reactions: "Huh? What's that?" 
or "What in the world are you going to do with a degree in that?" 

I would like to respond to these two reactions. First, what is music ministry? It is the role that 
a person takes within a religious service wherein the' person serves the congregation through 
music. It seems odd to use the verb "to serve" in this context, but that is what the word 
"minister" means. So how does one serve through music? Why is it necessary to do so? 

Within a worship-ritual such as the Roman Catholic Mass, people come together in order to 
remember, or to hear anew, the words and actions of God in their lives. Their gathering also 
provides the opportunity to respond to that remembrance by thanksgiving and/or sacrifice. This 
two-way interaction between deity and worshippers can be called proclamation (God's word to 
people) and response (of the people to God). 

Music is suitable to both directions of this communication. It adds meaning to words, and it 
stirs the heart in a way words alone cannot. Also, music enhances the ritual event. What 
celebration is complete without music? If we spoke the words of the birthdav song, would they 
convey the same joy and well-wishing? 

Music, then, is important to a religious service. However, instead of being the object of the 
gathering, as in a concert, the music serves as the medium through which proclamation- 
response can occur, and through which greater glory is given to God. 

The role of the music minister is to use music to facilitate the dialogue. There are therefore 
many aspects that he or she must consider before choosing and using music for the ritual. The 
primary concern is that adherence to the proclamation-response dynamic be the criterion for in- 
cluding a piece of music within the ritual. That is, the music must make sense within the ritual, 
not just be included because it is beautiful (although certainly all music used in a worship 
service must be beautiful; how could God be given any less?), or because the rubrics of the ritual 
say that music is to be inserted at this point. 

Secondly, since the music minister is serving the congregation, he or she must choose music 
in a style, with a text, and of a certain level of difficulty that the congregation can use to com- 
municate to God and to each other. If some music is to be created by only a few people for the 
congregation's benefit, then again the peoples' age, culture, level of education, etc., must be 
considered in choosing a piece, so that they can best understand the message being offered. For 
example, one would not normally use an obscure Latin motet in a children's liturgy. It would 
frustrate their desire for communication, not fulfill it. 

The music minister, then, must have specific knowledge of both the worship ritual wherein 
he or she is working, and of music. 

First and foremost, the music minister must recognize his or her role as servant rather than 

Most people within a congregation do not have expertise in either of the two areas. A 
specially-trained person, knowledgeable in both areas, is needed. This is why a degree in music 
ministry exists — to have beautiful music that makes sense within the service, the work of a 
music minister, is essential. Fortunately, most churches in the major Christian traditions 
recognize the need for competent music ministers, and hire them into paid positions. There is a 
job market for those of us in the music ministry program, and it is growing rapidly as more peo- 
ple become aware of the need. 

Those who react to my saying my major is music ministry in the two ways I mentioned 
miyht now say, "I understand now what a music minister does and that the role is needed in 
church services But why spend your life in a church if you're talented at music? Why don't 
you get into the rock industry? There's so much more money involved there than in a church. 
Or why not even join some symphony orchestra, if you like classical music better? No one ever 
hears about church musicians'" 

I would like to remind those who have asked me these questions that J.S. Bach spent most of 
his life as a music minister (although they were not called that in his day). Although he was 
never "rich and famous" during his life, I would hesitate to say that his name slipped into the 
oblivion of dust-dry music history journals! However, this is hardly the point 

Why does anyone choose to serve rather than to become renowned in a field, or to become 
wealthy (although the two occupations are by no means exclusive)? Why does a nurse put up 
with emotional stress and overwork just to work with the sick, injured, or even dving people? 
Surely not just for the money, although 1 understand that a nurse's salary is decent. No, it is 
i ertainlj because ol a vision of something more than wealth and fame, a vision of the personal 
fulfillment that is brought about by a life of service. For myself, I can onlj saj this usion is mv 
reason for choosing a career in music ministry A laith lives in me that compels me to serve 
others to the best of my abilitv as a way of life. Music ministry is an area wherein I can act on 
that faith 

You're Never Too Old 

by Ming Paulfrey 

Many ambitious women, twenty-five and 
older, are returning to college each year. 
These women are no longer content with the 
stereotype roles of retirement from an un- 
challenging career, nor are they receiving 
complete satisfaction from domesticity. 

One such woman is Lorraine McCall. 
After spending several years rearing a family 
of five, Lorraine decided to return to college 
to complete her education. She says, "It s 
not a courageous act to return to college, but 
it is rewarding if you can see it through. It 
takes determination, perserverance, and a 
belief in yourself that you can do it." 

Lorraine receives much support from her 
family and friends. Periodically, she must 
give a progress report of her grades to her 
family. She says, "My son, Greg, a professor 
at UCLA, is a constant encouragement. He 
aided me in the selection of the college of my 

Presently, Lorraine is enrolled in the B.A. 
program at Mount St. Mary's college, 
Chalon campus. She is an English major and 
is in her junior year. 

In an interview with Lorraine, she revealed 
a desire to graduate from college at the same 
time as one of her children. So in December 
1982, Lorraine and her youngest daughter, 
Colleen, will graduate from their respective 
colleges. (MSMC & UCLA) 

Sister Catherine Theresa, Director of In- 
stitutional Research, is a member of the 
MSMC faculty. She provided a reporter from 
The View with a government report reveal- 
ing the figures for enrollment of non- 
traditional students (students over the age of 
seventeen). They are as follows: 1980 to 
1981, 15%; 1981 to 1982, 20%; and 1982 
to 1983, 23%. 

When Sister Catherine Therese was asked 
to evaluate the increased enrollment level of 
non-traditional students, she commented, 
"The Mount has had older students for a 
good many years due to its nursing program, 
but the percentage of enrollment has further 
increased due to the number of women that 
are going into other programs." 

There are numerous fields available to 
women today. I for one, am a flight attendant 
for Continental Airlines. I have been in this 
profession for approximately thirteen years, 
but one day I realized a need for further fulfill 
ment. After a careful re-evaluation of my life, 
I decided upon a few goals. One is to return 
to college, and the other is to become an an- 
chorwoman. I will succeed at both!

Betty Madani 

Batool Madani, better known as Betty, has 
been chosen for this month's "Profiles on 
Campus." Betty is a staff member of Mount 
Saint Man 's lood services and is one of those 
who aid in making many of the college's 
re eptions a success. It is she who does some 
of the fancy artwork on the food items 

Betty first began working at the Mount in 
the sisters' dining room. Upon Ata's re- 
quest, Betty then worked in the main dinmt; 
room to serve resident students. It was this 
move that prompted Betty to refine her 
knowledge and use of the English language. 
For many mornings thereafter, she labored 
through grammar texts and today speaks 
English as comfortably as her native language 
— Farsi. 

Betty came to the United States from Iran 
on the account of her familv. All Eve of her 
children have studied here. Her youngest son 
is a college sophomore with a pre-med major. 
Today. Bett\ lives with her husband, son and 
daughter in West Los Angeles. 

Betty's Iranian background is as rich as 
Persia's past. She comes from the city of 
Isfahan which is located two hundred miles 
south of Teheran. It is known as the "Paris 
ol the Middle East" because of it's many 
charming and decorative mosques dating 
back to the time w hen Isfahan was the capital 
ol the Persian Empire under Shah Abbas I Ii 
was in this city, then, that Betty and her 
family led a pleasant life 

Betty's family life today encompasses not 
onl) her husband, sons anil daughter but also 
the Mount Community. Her message to the 
students here is to fulfill oneself to the fullest 
m order to be able to give more of oneself to

Be a Joiner! Keep in Shape! 

by Anna Sandino 

Kris Keller and Rochelle Gentile designed 
a program of physical education using the 
parcourse, which has been designed to 
strengthen every part of your body. 

It is called parcourse because it has three 
levels: sport level, championship level, and 
competition level. In general, the parcourse is 
a circuit training program that has 18 sta- 
tions. Stations one and four by the Chapel are 
basically stretching and warming up areas. 
The next two stations in front of Rossiter 
Building are a combination of stretching and 
cardiovascular conditioning. In between each 
station there is room for you to do car- 
diovascular exercise, such as running or jum- 
ping jacks. The parcourse has something for 
everybody. It can be used by beginners as 
well as pros. 

Kris and Rochelle encourage everyone to 
use the parcourse. They meet Tuesday morn- 
ings from 7:45 to 8:30 and Thursday after- 
noons from 4:30 to 5:30 and are happy to 
show people around. They also do individual 

fitness evaluations, which includes blood 
pressure, resting heart rate, active heart rate, 
flexibility, muscle endurance, and muscular 
strength. They can tell what your ideal body 
weight should be, fat percentage, and help 
you to reach a realistic goal. 

"It is very important to take care of your 
body. Mount St. Mary's College cares not 
only for your mind, and spirituality, but they 
also care about your physical well being," 
Rochelle said. 

If you would like to find out more about 
the parcourse, come to Health Services on 
first floor Humanities. There you can find in- 
formation concerning the parcourse, fitness 
evaluation, nutrition, diet and much more. 
You can also arrange an appointment for a 
fitness evaluation. Fitness evaluations will be 
reviewed and revised the first Monday and 
the third Friday of every month. You can get 
your personal workcard to keep track of how 
you're doing on the individual station in the 

The Black Student's Union at Mount St. Mary's College 

by Evelyn Perez 

The Black Student Union (BSU) is a 
relatively new organization at the Mount. 
Beginning its first full year this fall, the BSU 
was initiated in December, 1981. Their pur- 
pose is to make people aware of the richness 
and diversity of the black culture. 

Members of BSU consider their club 
special. President of the BSU, Shelli Amber 
Weeks, affirms, "This is not just another 
social club. Our activities are for the benefit 
of everyone at the Mount and not just the 
black community We hope to provide a lear- 
ning experience. ' ' She also added that BSU is 
open to everyone on campus and encourages 
new membership. 

There are two major goals at the heart of 
BSU. The primary one is to establish 
themselves and their identity. Current 
stereotypes still prevail in the attitude 
towards black culture clubs, according to 
Shelli, Members chafe at the idea that many 
consider BSU as another black militant group 
echoing radical statements. This isn't the 
case at the Mount. BSU hopes to provide 
members with a sense of belonging and ex- 
posure to the contributions of blacks, past 
and present. BSU and Shelli hope to continue 
improving their image. Some people have 
never been exposed to the variety of black 
cultures. I've talked to people who have 
never even heard of Martin Luther King 

In an effort to remedy this situation, BSU's 
second goal is to foster an understanding of 
blacks and their contributions. This January 

14th, 1983, there will be a special com- 
memorative of Martin Luther King's birth- 
day. The service will include a candlelight 
procession and a tentative celebrity invited to 
recite one of King's speeches. February will 
be Black History Month, nationally and on 
campus. The celebration at the Mount will 
consist of displays, guest speakers, entertain- 
ment, soul food and a dance. Speaking of 
dances, they are always popular and BSU 
plans to have more throughout the year in 
addition to their latest one last October, 
"Ebony and Ivory. ' ' There is also a new pro- 
ject in the works. It is a gospel program, in 
troducing the history and music of gospel to 
the Mount. It's not all hard work and no 

BSU hopes to clear away the cobwebs of 
misconception in the future. They would also 
like to publicly express their thanks to their 
sponsor Beverly Porter and "Guardian 
An>;el" Sr. Theresa Harpin. The BSU of- 
ficers for the 1982-83 school year are: Shelli 
Amber Weeks, president; Moranda Russell, 
vice-president; Linda Cruz, treasurer; Cyn- 
thia Jones, recording secretary; Toni Brown, 
corresponding secretary; Donna Booker, 
Madeline McQueen and Marcine Sanky, 
public relations officers. BSU looks forward 
to creating a "oneness of all people", and to 
paraphrase King, a time when the sons of 
former slaves and former slave owners will be 
able to sit down at the table together This is 
the spirit of BSU. Best wishes for a greal

Women's Yellow Pages 
Doubles in Size 

Looking for a woman to repair your car, 
paint your house, handle your investments, 
or represent you in court? The 1983 
Women 's Yellow Pages is the place to look. 
The 1983 edition contains more than 1000 
women's businesses, organizations, and pro- 
fessional services in Los Angeles and Orange 
Counties — twice as many listings as last 
year. Retailing for $4.95, the Women's 
Yellow Pages can be purchased in most 
bookstores, or by mail from P.O. Box 
66093, Los Angeles, CA 90066. 

More than a directory of businesses, the 
Women 's Yellow Pages offers a Survival 
Guide to vital community services such as 
crisis hotlines, shelters, and health and legal 
clinics. This year's directory lists names and 
addresses of legislators and local media to 
make it easier for women to make their opi- 
nions known. The Women 's Yellow Pages 
has also expanded to include a calendar of 
events of special interest to women, and a sec- 
tion on notable women from history. 

Due to growing volume of advertisers, a 
i ar supplement will be published in 
April of 1983 Publishers Leslie Stone and 
Sharon Fertitta view the rapid growth of the 
Women 's Yellow Pages as evidence that 
more women are starting their own 
businesses, and that more people are utilizing 
the skills and services of women. The easy-to- 
use directory provides a valuable tool for 
women's networking and economic develop
