Yet to be raised HARTFORD. Conn. (AP) -Tim) many Americans get their only physical exercise sitting in front of a television Net watching athletes perform, according to an insurance executive recently appointed to the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, “T(mi early in life some people resign themselves as watchers because they have learned they can't win as they're supposed to,” said John J Byrne. He blames this in part on the availability of sports on television He also blames the excessive urge to win built into the competitive system in this country Byrne said a study done by the President's Council shows that 45 percent of adults don't engage in any exercise beyond their daily routine! And of the 55 percent who do exercise, less than half exercise the three times a wi*t*k that is necessary to derive benefits Byrne, who gets up at H calisthenics for IO minutes. and works from 7:30 or 8 a m until ll p.m. most work days. He swims with his wife and three sons in the summer and skis in winter and often plays golf He said he doesn't feel intimidated by professional athletes and wishes other Americans didn’t. But the heavy emphasis on winning in professional sports is becoming strongly entrenched “even rn organized sports for young boys and girls, discouraging all but the most capable and competitive from participating. ” Children's Home briard of directors, of the Cedar Rapids Garden club and the Cedar Rapids Country club She was active in the Immaculate Conception church altar and rosary society and served on the original board of the Mt Mercy college Woman’s club. The Donnellys’ daughter, Joan, was a student at Mt. Mercy academy. Mr Donnelly's brother, Msgr. P. Edward Donnelly, was celebrant for the first mass ever said “on the hill” where Mt. Mercy college and Sacred Heart convent are now located Beginning with this first mass in 1906. Msgr Donnelly daily walked from Immaculate Conception church to Mt. Mercy and back to say mass for the Sisters of Mercy. A public ceremony recognizing the Donnelly gift will be held at Mt. Mercy next spring. Construction is to begin immediately on the nursing center, which will house more than 220 nursing students and 20 faculty members. Architects for the building are Hansen, Lind, Meyer of Iowa City Rinderknecht Associates is construction manager The center will provide space for increased student use of audio-visual material and one-to-one faculty-student learning experiences Much of Mt. Mercy’s nursing curriculum is based on students learning at their own rate, and the new center will improve this through the increased space and strategic location of classrooms, seminar rooms, audio visual self-instruction rooms, faculty offices and a large lecture hall, all under one roof At present, the nursing department is housed in a portion of the remodeled fifth floor or “attic” of Warde hall, in a single classroom on the third floor of Warde and in a remodeled portion of Sacred Heart convent. Site of the Donnelly center is north of McAuley and Regina dormitories near the crest of the hill. The building has been placed so as not to obstruct the view from the two dormitories. Original cost of the building in 1972 was $1,750,497 but design revisions and inflation have increased the figure to SEWS,241. The college has been conducting a capital campaign to raise funds for the nursing center and for a $300,000 men s residence Gifts, pledges and grants toward these goals total $1 86 million, including a $1,136,827 federal health, education and welfare department construction grant for the nursing center Thirteen volunteers from the corporate community and ll board members have been working on the campaign Plans are now underway for carrying the campaign to the college constituency in this area and throughout the state Alumni, parents and friends of the college will bt* called on by their peers as funds are sought for the second objective, the men’s residence.
