The Loyola Maroon VOL. XXIX, X-258 Loyola University, New Orleans, Friday, February IS, 1952 NO. 15 New Council Rejects Law Enforcement Power by Larry Callen Liaison Relations Fill New Group's Desires Student government privileges which were accepted bylast year's Student Council were flatly rejected Wednesday night at the initial meeting of the newly elected Council.Headed by Louis Dudossat, newly elected president of the Council and president of the college of Arts and Sciences, the motion passed, moved that "the Student Council discard the extra burden of student government accepted by the past Council and revert to the existing L-Book constitution." It was passed by a 15 to 3 vote. The Council will now function as a liaison group between students and administration. The student representative made this decision as a result of their unwillingness to enforce administration made regulations. The "No Smoking" rule and the "Coat and Tie" rule were the immediate objections. The new Council members declared their unwillingness to be held responsible for student violations. The position taken was that the group could do more good for the students by confining their activities to service to the student body rather than function as a semi-legislative body attempting to regulate student conduct. The Rev. Anthony C. O'Flynn, S.J., moderator, told the Council that their present duties wer» threefold. They were privileged to coordinate student . activities; had the power to enforce disciplinary action against student violators of policy; and were sanctioned to represent Loyola outside the university. But, in order to act in this capacity of student government, Fr. O'Flynn stated that they must accept the responsibility of enforcing university regulations pretaining to student conduct. He added that if the Student Council accept these duties then "they must have the moral courage to enforce university regulations which are a part of student . government responsibility." A completely independent stu, dent government was not possible, . for authority must be passed Louis Dudossat, Jr. Name Hymel '52 President Of Blue Key Business administration junior Gene J.

Thespians Score In Eugene O'Neill One-Act Sea Dramas "In The Zone" Is Best Of Morbid Trilogy Offering by Patrick Bellau The Loyola Thespians chalked up another success Wednesday night when they opened a five night run trilogy of Eugene O'Neill one-act sea plays. The plays called for a strong display of emotions from the actors, several of whom doubled-up roles in all three sea dramas. I Although each of the one-act plays carried some degree of morbidness, the Thespians saved the best for last with their presentation of "In The Zone". The play centers around the wild suspicions of several sailors for their fellow mate who was seen hiding a small metal box beneath his mattress one night while the ship was in the war zone. Everyone's nerves are on edge, and the sailors attack the suspected "traitor" after dousing with water what they believe to be a hidden bomb. Upon opening the box and inspecting the conasdfasd"BOUND EAST FOR CARDIFF" are Michael O'Connor and Pinky Vidacovich shown in this scene of the Eugene O'Neill play which is one of a trilogy of one-act plays being presented tonight, Saturday, and Sunday at S p.m., in Marquette auditorium.

This would make the Directors very happy, as unnecessary lights have been burning long after classes are out. How about a little cooperation? VeuDJ Tlc&e . .
